On Monday, disgraced former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner is expected to report to the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Massachusetts. There, he’ll serve 21 months in prison for sexting a 15-year-old girl.
Weiner pled guilty this past spring to one count of transferring pornographic material to a minor. In addition to the nearly two-year prison sentence, he was also sentenced to another three years of supervised release. He has been ridiculed as the man who couldn’t stop sexting, even after being caught — and publicly humiliated — multiple times. But this time he chose a teen as his target.
Following his prison term, he will be a federal and state registered sex offender. Weiner has stated that he “has a sickness, but does not have an excuse.” In court, he cried, saying that he had been “a very sick man for a very long time” and he had hit “rock bottom.” Despite Weiner’s crocodile tears, it seems that justice has finally been served.

When Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chair Donna Brazile exposed the DNC primary rigging scandal, it showed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not have just simply violated DNC rules when she bought the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination; she may have actually committed a crime, according to Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.
Jarrett explained that the Federal Election Campaign Act limits campaign contributions and that given Clinton’s past, “there is a strong chance that a document trail will lead investigators to multiple violations.” Second, if former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile’s account of Clinton’s deceptive actions is true, it is probable that campaign finance reporting laws were broken under the same Act.
Finally, the funneling of campaign funds from one source to another is money laundering. If it can be shown that Clinton violated campaign contribution limits or reporting requirements, then the channeling of the proceeds from one source to another would be prosecutable.
It is time to open an investigation and bring Hillary to justice.(Read More…)
President Trump’s push for “transparency” has led to many shocking revelations. Documents released Friday from the National Archives included a declassified FBI report from March 1968 which claims that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Marxist, had affairs with multiple women, and was even engaged in what was described as an “all-night sex orgy,” at a workshop for ministers.
The 20-page report, titled “Martin Luther King, Jr. A Current Analysis” was apparently written “just weeks before the revered civil rights leader was assassinated in 1968.” Some of the allegations in the documents include sexual romps and all-night orgies, interaction with prostitutes, affairs in which King fathered illegitimate children with three other women, and consorting with communist leaders.
The document did not specify whether any of the claims were independently verified. Reports claim that many of the allegations contained in the documents appear to be records of private conversations, or hearsay. The FBI, at the time headed by Director J. Edgar Hoover, is known to have engaged in extensive surveillance of King and his associates.
The report bears comparison to the Trump dossier in many ways — most notably because it was collected and organized by dedicated political opponents of King. While we may never know how much of this information is true, we continue to learn the depths that our government will go to, to conduct surveillance on a private citizen for political gain. That is appalling. (Read More…)
On Friday, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul was mowing the lawn outside of his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky, when he was “blindsided” and tackled by his next-door neighbor.
The senator suffered significant injuries. Neighbors explained that they witnessed 59-year-old Rene Boucher run onto Senator Paul’s property and tackle him from behind. He has been charged with fourth-degree assault, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to 12 months in jail. He is currently being held on bond at the Warren County Regional Jail and is awaiting a hearing Monday morning.
Facebook posts from Boucher, a registered Democrat, suggest that he was unhappy with the GOP. Several posts condemn President Donald Trump and prominent members of the Republican Party, and Boucher frequently shares posts from Occupy Democrats, a leftist site.
Authorities have not yet released an official motive for the attack, though the FBI is investigating the possibility of a political motivation. In addition, a neighbor told local news that Paul and Boucher have been involved in an “ongoing dispute.” It is disgusting that in 2017 that there is so much anger fueled by the mainstream media, much of the information false and/or sensationalized, that conservative political figures are being physically attacked.

President Donald Trump has arrived in Japan as part of his first presidential tour of Asia, a trip on which he is also expected to visit South Korea, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Trump surprised many when he stated, “I think it’s expected we’ll meet with Putin, yeah. We want Putin’s help on North Korea, and we’ll be meeting with a lot of different leaders.”
Trump is scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and Chinese President Xi Jingping before arriving in Da Nang. The president even stated that he’d “be open” to meeting with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, although he didn’t believe it was likely to happen anytime soon.
The face to face meeting with Putin will likely happen in Vietnam later this week at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Da Nang, Vietnam, amid heightening global tensions around the North Korea crisis. Let’s hope Trump and Putin, along with the other foreign leaders, can unite to resolve the growing North Korean crisis before it escalates. (Read More…)
Billionaire entrepreneur and Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who criticized Donald Trump heavily during the presidential campaign, has been arrested by a newly organized Saudi Arabian state security agency.
In 2015, the Saudi prince called Trump “a disgrace” and demanded that he withdraw from the U.S. presidential race. Ironically, Bin Talal ended up congratulating Trump after he won the 2016 election.
As part of a sweeping anti-corruption probe, Saudi Arabia has arrested dozens of prominent princes, military commanders, businessmen, and government officials. These arrests come at the behest of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who promised to implement reform and eliminate systemic corruption from a royal family that has long been accused of squandering public funds and misusing oil revenue.
Cynics might say this move appears to be more about removing opposition to the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, than fighting corruption. In fact, the Crown Prince was placed in charge of the country’s anti-corruption committee on Saturday night, and it took him less than a day to start removing some of his fiercest critics and most bitter rivals.
Whenever chaos and disorder reign in the Middle East, radical Islam becomes the answer. The Crown Prince’s counter-coup could be the beginning of a major disaster for the most violent region in the world — even if one of Trump’s most prominent critics is now out of the picture. This could get scary. (Read More…)
