Melania Trump is probably getting used to being attacked for no reason at all. She’s the type of woman who most liberals would normally support; she was a self-made success, an immigrant, a feminist of a certain stripe, and a first lady. But, none of that matters when you’re married to a Republican.
Rather than leave the First Lady alone, the left routinely goes after her for anything they can think of — even when it’s entirely untrue. On Monday, Melania tweeted an appreciation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, honoring the Civil Rights icon. After that tweet made the rounds, she was harassed on Twitter for supposedly copying the text of a Michelle Obama tweet from a different year. So what was the problem? Snopes concluded that Michelle Obama never sent out the tweet, so Melania couldn’t have plagiarized it.
Don’t expect any apologies, Melania, these people have no class. (Read More…)
Just about every Republican on Capitol Hill is talking about just how shocking this is. A memo was released to all members of the House from an investigation into the FISA warrant issued during Obama’s tenure to spy on then-candidate Trump.
What these congressmen have said so far is astounding. From it’s “worse than Watergate” to “it undermines American democracy.” According to these House members, what they’ve seen in this memo will be the greatest scandal of Obama’s presidency. Rep. Gaetz said that he believes it will lead to a major shakeup at the FBI and DOJ, potentially implicating Robert Mueller and other important figures.
Unfortunately, the memo has not been released to the public. The House must vote to release it, and, unsurprisingly, Democrats are impeding that process. We can only speculate about what’s in the document Republicans want to release, but if it’s anywhere near as bad as they’re saying, we could be in for a serious game-changing political moment.

Shortly after taking office, President Trump began the process of fulfilling one of his primary his campaign promises: bombing terrorist groups into submission. The first step he took was to remove the ridiculous rules of engagement for the American military where they’re in conflict with terrorist forces like ISIS and al-Qaida.
So far, it’s been an incredible success. ISIS has been all but entirely removed from Iraq, and they’ve lost most of the territory they previously held. And they’re getting beaten in Syria as well.
Now we’ve got some more good news. A major al-Qaida figure, Mohammed Abbas, aka Abu Hamza al-Masri, has been killed in Syria. Abbas had been a part of al-Qaida since prior to 9/11 and joined the Al Nusra Front (Syria’s arm of the organization) when war broke out a few years back. Finally, Abbas’s evil past has caught up with him. Good riddance. (Read More…)
The FBI isn’t the only part of the American intelligence services that routinely lies to the American public. James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, lied under oath about data collection on millions of Americans. He said that the NSA was “not wittingly” collecting any data on Americans. In fact, a massive program that collects metadata was being overseen by Clapper, and he knew what was going on.
Before the statute of limitation expires in a few weeks, some legislators are working to bring charges against Clapper. They want to have him answer for lying about being a critical part of an operation that effectively spies on Americans without even legislative oversight.
What is it with these intelligence agencies? They act like they can do whatever they’d like without repercussions. Well, they can’t, and they need to be held accountable. (Read More…)
President Trump has been winning a lot lately, and he apparently feels like celebrating. While touring the country to rally support for GOP candidates in this year’s midterm elections, Trump had to throw a few jabs at his roundly defeated former opponent. He asked the crowd: “remember the Deplorables?” referencing, of course, the terrible generalization that Hillary made against Trump-supporting Americans while accusing them all of being racists, homophobes, and loathsome people.
Trump’s triumphant rallying cry: “We’re all deplorables,” is a reminder of what he represents — the forgotten middle America that Hillary and the Democrats thought they could ignore. (Read More…)
Another reason to distrust Hillary has surfaced. A picture of her with Hollywood pervert Harvey Weinstein illustrates how close the two were. Weinstein was a major contributor to Clinton’s campaigns and the Clinton Foundation.
It’s no wonder — corrupt and sick birds of a feather flock together. They’re both power hungry people who abused the authority they have.
Most of the media refuse to cover any connection between Hillary and Weinstein. But that’s to be expected, isn’t it? (Read More…)
