  • Trump Tax Cuts Gain Momentum as Senator Rand Paul Goes 'All In'

    U.S. Republican senator Rand Paul on Friday appeared to back the Trump administration's sweeping tax cut plan, saying he was "all in" for massive tax cuts even as the Senate passed a key budget measure without his support one day earlier. On Thursday, the Republican-controlled Senate approved the budget resolution for the 2018 fiscal year, with Paul casting the lone Republican vote against it. That approval paves the way for their tax-cut proposal that would add up to $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit over the next decade to pay for the cuts. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday signaled...
  • Twitter Stunned By Dana Loesch’s New NRA Ad: ‘This Is Just Straight Fascism Now’

    “We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president…” exclaims Conservative political commentator and generally terrifying person Dana Loesch in a new Twitter video ad by the National Rifle Association. The unflinching, nearly unblinking delivery of Dana’s hyperbole in the video is introduced by an ominous sub-frequency and intercut with clips of the various ‘enemies’ and ‘saboteurs’ of the President and by Dana’s/the NRA’s logic, America. The thing that’s seemingly implied in the video is that gun-owners and NRA members are the last line of defense for America’s most sacred institutions and more importantly—of course—the Trump presidency.

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) claims in a new video that President Trump and his supporters are being subjected to the most "ruthless" attack against a U.S. president and his supporters in the history of the country.In a video posted Friday to the group's Twitter account, spokeswoman Dana Loesch accuses Democrats and other critics of the Trump administration of trying to delegitimize Trump's presidency.“We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president and the people who voted for him, and the free system that allowed it to happen, in American history," Loesch says at the beginning of the video.Scenes...

    All Russian roads lead to Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is neck deep in a Russian scandal involving bribery, kickbacks and extortion. FBI documents show that a Russian spy ring was simultaneously targeting her before and during her time as Secretary of State. The FBI arrested 10 Russian spies in June of 2010 and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quickly rushed them back to Moscow on a busy 4th of July weekend before the FBI was finished questioning them. Returning the spy ring to Moscow also prevented them from standing trial. Why???

    This morning President Donald J. Trump tweeted:He’s referring to yesterday’s news that, as CNN headlined its story on the matter, “Fusion GPS partners plead Fifth before House Intel.”Fusion GPS is the firm that paid for and disseminated the discredited dossier that former FBI director James Comey briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump about in January. The almost immediate and well-sourced leak of that briefing to CNN is what got the Russia scare really going in January. BuzzFeed published the dossier very soon after CNN’s story ran.So, as Trump and CNN note, folks at the firm took the Fifth in a...

    In the final press conference of his presidency, then President Barack Obama reiterated that he would largely keep mum once his successor took office. “It is appropriate for him to go forward with his vision and his values,” Obama explained. However, that statement did come with a bit of a caveat. For Obama, there would be “certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values are at stake” that might “merit me speaking out,” he said. Those issues included “systematic discrimination being ratified in some fashion,” “explicit or functional obstacles to people being able to vote,” “institutional efforts...

    Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) said President Trump’s White House is “full of white supremacists” in a new interview Friday. “The White House itself is full of white supremacists,” she told The New York Times. It is the latest response in a four-day controversy over Trump's response to military families who have lost a loved one. Wilson earlier this week described a phone conversation she was listening in on between Trump and the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger. The White House later accused Wilson of politicizing a "sacred" issue. Wilson's interview is not the...

    President George W. Bush on Thursday issued a thinly veiled warning about the state of American democracy under the current president, arguing that "bigotry seems emboldened" and politics is "more vulnerable" to conspiracy theories. Speaking at the George W. Bush Institute's "The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, in the World," a national forum in New York City, the former president warned that the trend in Western countries of moving away from democratic confidence and global engagement is seeping into American culture. Parts of Europe, Bush said, have developed an "identity crisis" as a result of economic stagnation, youth unemployment and...

    President Trump declared on Twitter Wednesday that James Comey "totally protected Hillary Clinton," after the FBI confirmed the former bureau boss drafted a statement on the private email case two months before it was over. In a series of tweets, Trump also swiped at the Justice Department, seeming to suggest they review what he called an apparent "fix." “Wow, FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete,” Trump tweeted. “Many people not interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn’t do this –obviously a fix? Where is...

    The IRS says it will not accept electronic tax returns that do not disclose whether the filer had health insurance coverage during the year. It also says it will suspend paper returns that do not have the disclosure. The IRS' move, which will bolster compliance with Affordable Care Act rules, comes as the Trump administration takes other steps to undercut the law. The IRS is warning tax professionals that it will block or suspend processing of 2017 income tax returns that do not comply with Obamacare rules requiring filers to disclose their health insurance status. The new move to tighten...

    A group of House Democrats on Thursday urged Vice President Pence to reimburse taxpayers the cost of his travel this month to Indianapolis for an NFL game he abruptly left after players kneeled during the national anthem. In a letter to Pence, five House Democrats demanded the vice president pay back the expenses of attending the game, where the Indianapolis Colts faced off against the San Francisco 49ers. A CNN report estimated that Pence’s travel to and from Indiana cost taxpayers about $242,500, which doesn’t include the cost of Secret Service or advance staff. The Democratic lawmakers asked that Pence...

    Miami Rep. Frederica Wilson angled for another 15 minutes of fame this week, claiming that in his consoling call to a Gold Star widow President Trump insulted the woman and trivialized her husband’s death. When it comes to racially inflammatory accusations, Wilson has a history. So does NBC, which happily spread the Trump “insults the widow” story. NBC has come under particular fire from Trump in the past few weeks for its propagation of “fake news,” and Trump does not know the half of it. In March 2012, Wilson and NBC came together to spread one of the most consequential...

    Former senator and Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday he has no plans to run for president in 2020, but didn't rule out the idea. "I don't have any plans right now, honestly," Kerry said on MSNBC when asked if he might make another run. Host Joe Scarborough and others noted that wasn't a firm denial, and pressed Kerry to talk more about whether he would entertain a run.

    If the name of U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson is not familiar to you, the Florida congresswoman gained props for speaking up about the injustice suffered by the family of Trayvon Martin and more recently Charles Kinsey. After news regarding slain soldier La David Johnson and Wilson confirming President Donald Trump was insensitive to the family surfaced, a trending topic, “#IBelieveFrederica” has cropped up defending her from Trump’s attack that Wilson’s comments were false. Wilson, who was a family friend of Johnson, was in a limousine with the soldier’s widow when Trump placed a call this week to offer condolences. Johnson’s...
  • TRUMP Needs to Dump Janet Yellen — She’s an Obama Hack Set on Sabotaging Trump Economy

    10/20/2017 10:32:25 AM PDT · by davikkm · 16 replies
    During the 2016 election candidate Donald Trump repeatedly attacked Janet Yellen as an Obama lackey who kept the interest rates close to zero to help the far left president. TRUMP WAS RIGHT. Since 2000, the Federal Reserve increased the Fed Funds rate excessively under President Bush between 2004 and 2006. These excessive increases led up to the 2008 recession and may have at least partially influenced the economic disaster at that time. If the Federal Reserve was political and wanted to prevent Republican Presidents from successful economic growth, then the Fed would increase the Fed Funds rates during Republican Presidents’...

    Corny Capitalism: This is one campaign promise we wish President Trump would break. But alas, he just told his EPA to give up any thought of cutting back on the federal government's anti-consumer, anti-environment ethanol mandate. Sad. The story begins in 2005, when President Bush approved the Renewable Fuel Standard program as part of an energy bill, which required oil refiners to blend in predetermined amounts of "biofuels" into their gasoline, starting at 4 billion gallons in 2006. A revised version of the RFS, which Bush signed in 2007, expanding the program, requiring ethanol levels to climb steadily to 36...

    Gold star widow Natasha De Alencar released the audio of a phone conversation she had with President Donald Trump in April about the death of her husband who was killed in Afghanistan. “I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that he’s an unbelievable hero,” Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released. “Thank you. I really, really appreciated it,” she said. “I really do, sir.” Trump also told the widow if she is ever in Washington D.C. that she...

    I heard something unusual when I logged on to the New York Times this morning. It seemed to me a dire, authoritative, even apocalyptic sound. It was as if a gigantic clap of thunder had been produced by an immense boot of truth. Allow me to explain. On my screen appeared a think piece comparing Adolf Hitler with Donald Trump. “Trump Isn’t Hitler. But the Lying . . . ,” by op-ed columnist Charles Blow, advances a breathtaking claim that has never, to my knowledge, appeared in any media outlet before: That though Trump isn’t Hitler, he’s actually pretty close,...

    Powerline ^ | 10-20-17 | Scott Johnson
    Former FBI Director James Comey knows how to play the G-Man as a straight arrow on television, but he’s a cynical Washington operator in real life. His orchestration of the appointment of his friend Robert Mueller as special counsel to take down President Trump in the fictitious Russia collusion scandal (and all its penumbras and radiations) represents a striking case in point. Comey’s hand in it should discredit the Mueller operation all by itself. Comey is a sort of Rosetta stone for the Russia investigation. Interpreting him and his works might allow one to decipher the hieroglyphics. I’m not saying...
