Could John Bolton soon be SACKED? Will it avert Iran war? Former CIA agent Kiriakou positive on both

Hawkish National Security Advisor John Bolton has steered the Trump administration towards multiple conflicts. However, CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou tells RT he’s learned that Bolton’s days in the White House may be numbered. Since joining the Trump administration in April of last year, Bolton has taken the hardest line possible on every geopolitical flare-up. From advocating “humanitarian intervention” in Venezuela, to briefing journalists about a plan to deploy 100,000 troops to the Middle East, to rumors of him “sabotaging” Trump’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un last year, Bolton has trumpeted escalation and confrontation as a panacea to all of…

It Only Costs Google $20 Million A Year To Control The U.S. Government

Google has fired six of its largest lobbying firms in an attempt to overhaul its global government affairs and policy operations amid greater government scrutiny of its business, according to the Wall Street Journal. Over the last few months, the company has changed its roster of lobbying firms, as well as its Washington policy team, and lost two senior officials who helped build its “influence operation” into one of the largest in the nation’s capital. The company had been paying about $20 million annually for lobbying, and the firms that Google has now let go made up about half of that…

A Government Psychic is Running for Office in Michigan

We’ve had people with UFO and extraterrestrial contacts running for office. We’ve had people with Bigfoot encounters and even Bigfoot porn aficionados running for office. Why not a government psychic? A what? “In the last election, I wasn’t allowed to use my Military Title as I am Sr. Commander Commando Legionnaire Kevin Christopher Seamon of the United States Military in Saginaw, Michigan. I am also Federal Agent White Knight 196. James Bond is 007. I am 196. I am a Real Life Government Psychic.” Well, that explains it … not. In the Saginaw, Michigan, edition of the local news service…

NY Assembly Approves Bill to Give Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

The New York State Assembly passed a bill Wednesday that would allow illegal immigrants in America to obtain driver’s licenses. The bill, which received a vote of 86-47 in the lower chamber of the New York State Legislature, must pass through the State Senate before it may be sent to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s desk. Should it become law, the bill would allow those residing in America illegally to use passports from other countries and other various foreign-issued documents to show their identities at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Assemblyman Robert Smullen, a Republican, expressed concern about the new law, saying…

Warren, Sanders Lead Calls for Immediate Impeachment Hearings After Trump Says He Would Welcome Dirt From Foreign Power in 2020

After President Donald Trump openly stated he would accept dirt on his 2020 opponents from a foreign power and not necessarily alert law enforcement, members of Congress and contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination said Trump’s remarks provide yet another reason for the House to immediately launch impeachment proceedings. “The Mueller report made it clear: A foreign government attacked our 2016 elections to support Trump, Trump welcomed that help, and Trump obstructed the investigation,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 White House hopeful, tweeted late Wednesday. “Now, he said he’d do it all over again. It’s time to impeach Donald…

Denver council member wins with promise to impose communism ‘by any means necessary’

Candi CdeBaca won a runoff race last week against former Denver city council president Albus Brooks, and she did it by promising to implement communist policies “by any means necessary.” CdeBaca was among three candidates that unseated incumbents in the Tuesday runoff, preliminary results show, and she’s already drawing comparisons to Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old who unseated 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district in 2018. “It’s historic,” said Carlos Valverde, state director for Colorado Working Families, a political activist group that supported CdeBaca. “It is in the vein of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. … A victory…

Obama Admin Purged 12 Years Of ICE Speeches On Immigration Crisis Hours Before Trump Inauguration

Hours before President Trump took office, the Obama administration scrambled to purge 12 years worth of transcripts spanning hundreds of speeches from the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website, according to the Daily Caller‘s Jason Hopkins.  A collection of 190 transcripts of speeches on ICE’s website was deleted on Jan. 18 and late in the evening on Jan. 19, 2017, according to research conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan organization that advocates for government transparency. Statements made by high-ranking ICE officials regarding controversial immigration topics such as sanctuary cities, E-Verify, treatment of detainees, and other issues were included in the reported deletions. –Daily Caller “With…

Bill Introduced To Allow Lawsuits Against Gun Manufacturers

As things currently stand, federal law prohibits victims and the family of victims from suing gun stores and firearm manufacturers. The law was passed because it was a common tactic to blame the people who sold the gun for what someone did with it later. For most of us, the idea of blaming Remington or Glock for a murder makes no sense. The gun isn’t responsible. It would be one thing if the firearm had some catastrophic failure that resulted in death, but that’s different. The maker may well be responsible then. No, these were lawsuits that existed to punish…

Clinton and Biden in Bizarro World …

Let’s get Joe Biden out of the way first. He’s apparently so desperate to be president he’s taken to making an outrageous claim—if elected he will cure cancer. Obviously, Joe is a blithering idiot, or he thinks you are. Either way, I seriously doubt he will be elected, although establishment Democrats have no other nominee choice. Now, Clinton. I find this woman to be one of the most disgusting politicians in an expansive rogue’s gallery of reprehensible Democrats. Her particularly odious character came to the forefront recently during a speech delivered at Wesley College. Clinton’s sore loser persona was on…

Trump executive order allows simpler path for genetically engineered food

President Trump wants to make it easier for genetically engineered plants and animals to enter the food supply, and he signed an executive order Tuesday directing federal agencies to simplify the “regulatory maze” for producers. The move comes as companies are turning to newer genetic engineering techniques that make it easier to tinker with the traits of plants and animals. Greg Jaffe, biotechnology director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said the impact of the executive order will depend on the details of how it’s carried out by federal agencies. Simply deregulating could make people lose confidence…

Virginia Democrat Accused of Having Sex with Teen Secretary Wins in State Primary

Former Virginia state legislator Joe Morrissey, who was accused of having sex with his teenage secretary in 2014, has won the Democratic primary for the state’s 16th Senate District. Morrissey later married his secretary and they have three children together.  The former state legislator defeated incumbent senator Rosalyn Dance by more than 10 points. Gov. Ralph Northam endorsed Dance in the final week leading up to the campaign, but that did not make a difference for him. Northam has faced major backlash since he admitting to being in a racist yearbook photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another…

Biden insults Iowans: ‘Probably a lot of you don’t know where Delaware is’

An East Coast liberal running for president dropped in on the bumpkins in Iowa today and insulted their intelligence. Joe Biden campaigned at Clinton Community College this morning and was touting Obamacare, and attempted to connect with the gun-toting, pickup-driving, Bible-reading rubes. “Delaware has a lot of small towns like y’all do,” he said, getting folksy with the country simpletons. “I know y’all think of Delaware as being this east— first of all, probably a lot of you don’t know where Delaware is, but anyway…” “‘I know Delaware, Rhode Island, I’ve been there,’” he said, apparently mimicking an Iowa yokel.…

Don’t Ignore Michelle Obama for 2020…

Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be the Democratic nominee to face Trump in 2020, says election expert Roger Stone. The current frontrunner, ex-Vice President Joe Biden, is simply “cannon fodder” for the Obama political machine, said Stone in his exclusive interview Tuesday with Alex Jones. “If Joe Biden wants to run, let him run,” said Stone. “He’s cannon fodder.” “The Obama machine will sweep him aside and I still predict that their strongest nominee – their most likely nominee – would be Michelle Obama.” Stone slammed Biden’s 24% polling position as a “sign of weakness” given his long political…

Biden repeats Trump jabs: ‘I’m either low IQ or slow — I don’t know’

The first rule of politics is to not reinforce your opponent’s attacks by repeating them. Despite being in elective politics for the last 50 years, Joe Biden apparently didn’t get that memo. At an event in Iowa today, Biden repeated some of Trump’s jabs, bringing more attention to them. “I think I’m either low IQ or slow—I don’t know what I am. Slow Joe Biden? Give me a break,” Biden said. “This is like out of Alice in Wonderland.” Biden attacked Vladimir Putin as members of the audience looked bored. One man in the front row looked at his phone.…

Ron Paul: U.S. Falling Apart Like Soviet Union Collapse

Libertarian Republican leader Ron Paul said that the American system under President Donald Trump is “coming apart” and that the booming economy this year is “a bit of an illusion.” “We’re on the verge of something like what happened in ’89 when the Soviet system just collapsed,” the former Texas congressional representative told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “I’m just hoping our system comes apart as gracefully as the Soviet system.” Paul said that a potential breakdown of the U.S. system due to underlying debt, inflation and inequality could result in a new monetary policy. “The country’s feeling a lot…

We Tracked Obama’s Movements For Over A Month And Based On His Meetings, It’s Time To Question Whether He Is Running A Shadow Government

We started tracking former President, Barrack Obama’s movements over 4 months ago and frankly, I am a bit worried with what we found. Most Americans have not had the time nor inclination to make a deep dive into how many federal agencies and employees were involved in the attempted coup of Donald Trump. Even fewer have considered the ramifications of what such a widespread, inter-agency operation may mean to their own constitutional protections.  They should care because our Republic has been gravely imperiled by these deep state actors. If they can get away with this level of corruption with the…

PHOTOS: Biden plays to about 100 people in Iowa — ‘small crowd almost all over 55, some significantly older’

Joe Biden doesn’t want those wild, crazy rallies with all of those voters. He’s opting for a low-key approach with just a handful of people. The former vice president’s two-day swing through Iowa has him stopping in Ottumwa this afternoon. Video tweeted by KTVO’s Asia Mitchell-Tabb shows a small event space at the Bridge View Center. “It’s tight in here,” Mitchell-Tabb observed with the video panning the room. The reporter’s camera shows it quickly, but look how few chairs are in place for Biden fans: There are 12 rows of 6 chairs, or 72 seats. Interestingly, Biden will say President…

Trump: ‘Loser’ Joe Biden Is ‘Weak Mentally’

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden is mentally weak, responding to a speech leaked before the 2020 Democratic candidate delivers it in Iowa. “I think he’s the weakest mentally, and I think Joe is weak mentally,” Trump said. “The others have much more energy.” Trump predicted that Democrats in the crowded presidential field may overcome the former vice president. “I heard Biden was a loser… It looks like he’s failing, it looks like his friends from the left are going to overtake him very soon,” Trump said.

Joe Biden: If I’m Elected President, ‘We’re Going to Cure Cancer’

Former Vice President Joe Biden made a campaign promise to “cure” cancer if elected president in 2020 during an event in the state of Iowa on Monday afternoon. “I’ve worked so hard in my career, that I promise you, if I’m elected president you’re gonna see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden told supporters in Ottumwa. Biden has made eradicating the deadly disease a primary focus since his son, Beau Biden, lost his fight in 2015 with Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. While vice president, he oversaw the Obama administration’s “Cancer Moonshot” —  an initiative…

Biden Tells Donors and Lobbyists at Fundraiser That GOP Will ‘Know Better’ After Trump and Wall Street Bankers ‘Are All Positive’

Providing more evidence of the fundamental political differences between himself and progressives vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, former Vice President Joe Biden told lobbyists and donors at a fundraiser Monday night that Republicans in Congress “know better” than to align with President Donald Trump and declared that Wall Street bankers “can be positive influences in the country.” “Wall Street and significant bankers and people, they’re all positive, they can be positive influences in the country,” Biden told the audience gathered in Washington, D.C. “But they didn’t build the country. The middle class built the country.” Observers were quick…

Hollywood Meddles in German Mayoral Election in Effort to Defeat AfD Candidate

Hollywood is meddling in the mayoral election of a small town in Germany in an effort to stop the right-wing AfD candidate from winning. In the first round of the vote for Mayor of Goerlitz, the AfD’s Sebastian Wippel picked up 36.4% of the vote, beating the second place establishment CDU candidate. The picturesque old town area of Goerlitz has been the site of numerous historical Hollywood movies over the years, including Inglourious Basterds and The Grand Budapest Hotel. Because of this, the industry now appears to think it can meddle in the democratic affairs of German residents of the…

George Soros ‘Purchases’ Local Elections to Push for ‘Radical Agenda’ − US Attorney

George Soros, 88, is known for his investments in pro-migrant groups and broader globalist agenda. One of his most recent endeavours is a criminal justice reform drive in the United States, in which he has thrown his weight behind progressive candidates in several district attorney elections. Fox News host Tucker Carlson has ripped into American-Hungarian investor and liberal philanthropist George Soros, accusing him of using his wealth to quietly “remake” American society. George Soros was reported to have ploughed over $3 million into district-attorney campaigns in several states in 2016, supporting progressive candidates who would back a criminal justice reform. “Once elected,…

Wasserman Schultz presses her ammunition control bill

The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives continues its push to pass their entire legislative agenda ahead of the 2020 presidential election. It’s fair to say that Democrats are trying to pass as much legislation they know congressional Republicans will vote against, and President Trump won’t sign. The political play is a safe bet considering that Democrats could very well lose their control of the House, and as Trump looks like he will win re-election. Democrats have already passed gun legislation that is considered anti-gun because of the restrictions the bills call for, and are now poised to pass an ammunitions…

US ‘now a full-fledged banana republic’ after Mitch McConnell wife $78m grants revelation

Donald Trump‘s transport secretary designated a special liaison to help with grant applications from her senator husband’s state, paving the way to fund projects worth $78m (£62m), it has been reported. Elaine Chao personally asked a Department of Transportation aide to serve as an intermediary and advisor to Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and his Kentucky state officials, according to emails seen by Politico. The projects funded – as Mr McConnell prepared to campaign for re-election – reportedly included road improvements in Republican political strongholds for which grant applications had previously been rejected. Ms Chao and her aide, Todd Inman, have reportedly met annually…

Joe Biden 1974: ‘Politicians Can Take Away’ First Amendment ‘If We Want’

Former Vice President Joe Biden told a journalist in 1974 that “cruddy politicians” like himself could “take away” the First Amendment if they wanted. The current 2020 Democrat frontrunner made the comments to Washingtonian magazine while being interviewed fora profile published in June 1974. Biden, then only 31-years-old, came to regret the interview, as his penchant for gaffes and insensitive remarks—traits defining later portions of his career—heavily colored the piece. At the time, however, Biden appeared eager to discuss his life as the nation’s youngest senator. “I am proud to be a politician,” Biden told then-Washingtonian writerKitty Kelley, who authored the profile. “There…

Top voting machine maker reverses position on election security, promises paper ballots

Voting machine maker ES&S has said it “will no longer sell” paperless voting machines as the primary device for casting ballots in a jurisdiction. ES&S chief executive Tom Burt confirmed the news in an op-ed. TechCrunch understands the decision was made around the time that four senior Democratic lawmakers demanded to know why ES&S, and two other major voting machine makers, were still selling decade-old machines known to contain security flaws. Burt’s op-ed said voting machines “must have physical paper records of votes” to prevent mistakes or tampering that could lead to improperly cast votes. Sen. Ron Wyden introduced a…

‘Corruption in Plain Sight’: Jared Kushner Firm Took in $90 Million From Unnamed Foreign Entities Since 2017

The latest scandal from the President Donald Trump administration involves secretive foreign investments in a company in which the president’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner has a stake. As The Guardian reported Monday, real estate speculation corporation Cadre, which was co-founded by Kushner, has received at least $90 million in overseas capital since 2017. “Corruption in plain sight!” tweeted journalist Rula Jebreal.  The money came through financial services conglomerate Goldman Sachs via the Cayman Islands, making the original sources impossible to track. Neither Cadre nor Goldman are required to make the investors public and neither company has expressed any interest in doing so. …

Trump Threatens to Reinstate Tariffs if Mexico Fails to Approve Portion of Immigration Deal

A day earlier, Trump said that a deal with Mexico on curbing illegal immigration had opened a new era of “great cooperation” between the two countries, adding that he was confident that Mexico City would be “very cooperative” and wanted “to get the job properly done”. US President Donald Trump has repeated his threat of tariffs against Mexico, saying that the US has already signed a portion of the planned immigration and security pact with the country and warned that Washington would follow through with its threat if the deal was not ratified by Mexican lawmakers. “We have fully signed…

HILLARY CLINTON’S Brother Found Dead: How The Former Repo Man, and Prison Guard Ended Up Sitting On The Board Of A Highly Profitable Gold Mine In Haiti

Hillary Clinton tweeted today, about the death of her youngest brother, Tony Rodham. No details were given about the reason for his death. “It’s hard to find words, my mind is flooded with memories of him today,” she wrote. “When he walked into a room he’d light it up with laughter. He was kind, generous, & a wonderful husband to Megan & father to Zach, Simon, & Fiona. We’ll miss him very much.” In 2007, it was reported by Buzzfeed, that Tony Rodham owed $148,000 to his ex-wife, Barbara Boxer’s daughter, Nicole. Hillary said, her brother Tony was a wonderful…

Nancy Pelosi Opposes Mexico’s Promise to Keep Migrants

The top Democrat in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, is opposing Mexico’s comprehensive immigration reform deal with U.S. President Donald Trump. The deal expands the “Remain in Mexico” policy which returns illegal migrants back to Mexico until they can be bussed to their asylum-court hearings in the United States. The policy is now keeping just 8,000 migrants in Mexico, out of roughly 330,000 who crossed the border in the last three months. “We are deeply disappointed by the Administration’s expansion of its failed Remain-in-Mexico policy, which violates the rights of asylum seekers under U.S. law and fails to address the…

Attorney General Barr on His Job at FBI: I’m Trying to Figure Our Where to Land “Without Being Shot”

US Attorney General Barr spoke at a ceremony at the FBI academy.  He hinted at the dangerous situation he is in as Attorney General at this time in history. Bill Barr started his presentation by stating : “As we’ve been watching the coverage of June 6, 1944 D-Day, I had the thought that my arrival this time felt a little bit, I think, like jumping into Sainte-Mère-Église on the morning of June 5, trying to figure out where you could land without getting shot.” Barr’s comments about the reality of getting shot at received no reaction from the crowd. Americans…

Philadelphia To Ban Balconies And Bay Windows; “Symbols Of Gentrification”

In Philadelphia, city councilman Kenyatta Johnson has pushed for the city to ban balconies and bay windows from new apartments and condos, saying that they are a “symbol of gentrification” that causes anxiety, as he criticizes the new housing developments being built in the city. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports: Johnson, who represents much of South Philadelphia, introduced a bill during City Council’s May 23 session that would ban balconies and bay windows across Point Breeze and Grays Ferry. The two architectural features would still be allowed outside of those two neighborhoods, but according to the bill, the distance from which…

Milo named Grand Marshall of Straight Pride Parade in Boston

Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been named the grand marshal for Boston’s “Straight Pride” parade. Organizers announced Friday the former Breitbart editor as the parade’s grand marshal after they originally used actor Brad Pitt‘s name and likeness for the event. The head of Super Happy Fun America, a group that “advocates on behalf of the straight community,” told the Boston Herald that Pitt “was not super happy” about the group using his name and likeness without his consent. “I really like his movies and his lawyers sent us a letter asking us to take his stuff down but, you know, you’re allowed…

Maher warns Dems not to make gun control a 2020 issue: ‘Liberals should learn more about guns’

“Real Time” host Bill Maher cautioned Democrats not to make gun control a prominent issue in the 2020 election, urging them not to “die on this hill” if it means losing to President Trump. During his panel discussion Friday night, Maher listed several issues on which Democrats’ stands poll better than Republicans,’ such as the environment, education and health care. But he noted that Republicans hold a narrow lead over Democrats on gun policy. Maher then mentioned President Trump’s recent sit-down with British TV personality Pierce Morgan, where the president mentioned that some people own guns for recreational use. “I don’t like guns. Have…

Virginia Prosecutor ‘Reform’ Efforts Include Nailing Sexting Teens With Child Porn Charges And Screwing Defense Lawyers

Virginia has a mixed history when it comes to handling teens and sexting. For the most part, these cases have been handled with maximum vindictiveness, resulting in teens being charged with child porn production and possession. In rare cases, prosecutors have exercised more discretion, allowing these experiences to be educational rather than punitive. But default mode is still to use the law like a weapon, rather than a tool, as if justice were somehow achieved by ruining teens’ lives forever for some stupid indiscretions. A parent’s firsthand experience with this has resulted in him calling out Theo Stamos, Arlington County…

Californians Are Now Paying Higher Gas Taxes. Cities Are Responding by Reducing Lanes for Cars.

At a 2017 Riverside rally touting legislation to increase gas taxes and vehicle-license fees to boost California’s infrastructure spending, then-Gov. Jerry Brown was characteristically grandiose. “Roads are the fundamentals of a civilization,” he said. “Whether it was the Roman Empire or the United States of America, roads are the key to a nation’s greatness.” As someone who once spent hours driving 50 miles on a decrepit and insanely crowded third-world country’s “highways,” I can attest to the societal importance of a modern, well-maintained freeway system. But the latest news about that gas-tax hike—and the way some cities are using the cash—speaks volumes about our…

New Jersey Regulators Crack Down on Craft Beer

Last week, New Jersey regulators pumped the brakes on the state’s craft beer industry. The state’s Alcohol Beverage Control board (ABC) issued a special ruling that restricts breweries in the state in a number of ways—including who, what, when, and how they can serve. The new rules replace others the ABC had planned to adopt last year. Facing pushback from brewers, the ABC decided to pull back and ponder the rules. James Graziano, acting ABC director, said in a statement announcing the new rules that the ABC chose to work with “the very few, very vocal licensees who felt their…

Mitch McConnell Faces Backlash for Selling ‘Cocaine Mitch’ Shirts for Senate Re-Election Campaign

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to capitalize on an out-there attack that a fellow Republican made against him last year. On Thursday, the official Twitter account of McConnell’s re-election campaign tweeted out a photo of their new “Cocaine Mitch” T-shirts, which feature a faceless illustration of the Kentucky politician on the front alongside the image of a fine white powdery substance. Meanwhile, the back of the shirt reads: “Team Mitch Cartel Member.” “A year ago, a legend was born. Own your piece of history. #CocaineMitch,” the Tweet read, while a follow-up message proclaimed, “Become an official member of…

Judge Rules George Nader Is a Danger to the Community, Orders Him Jailed Ahead of Child Pornography Trial

A U.S. Magistrate Judge in the Eastern District of Virginia on Friday ordered 60-year-old George Nader to be detained ahead of trial. The defense hoped that Nader would be granted conditional release due to complications from a heart surgery, but the judge said Nader is a danger to the community. He has been “remanded to the custody of the [U.S. Marshals Service] due to safety of the community,” the docketed order from Magistrate Judge Ivan Davis said. The judge scheduled a preliminary hearing for Monday. Davis reportedly had a “litany” of concerns about releasing Nader from custody, including that Nader is a…

President Trump Reaches Signed Agreement with Mexico – Tariffs Suspended, Mexico Agrees to Stem Tide of Illegals

President Trump promised to impose increasing tariffs on Mexico if they did not take strong measures to prevent the hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants of passing through Mexico to the United States. Democrats, the Chamber of Commerce and RINOs were OUTRAGED that President Trump threaten such drastic measures to protect the United States. On Friday night President Trump announced that an agreement was reached and Mexico will take strong measures to stem the tide of illegals to the United States. President Donald Trump: I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed…

Con Man Kwame Kilpatrick Claims He’s a Deep State Victim, Urges Trump to Commute His Prison Sentence

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is issuing high praise to President Donald Trump in the hopes that the President will commute his 28-year prison sentence for corruption charges. “I first want to congratulate you for the overwhelming and stunning victories of your Presidential campaign, and also the unprecedented success of your first two-years in office. You have shaken up the entire world…and that is a great thing to behold,” Kilpatrick wrote on Apr. 16 in a letter to Trump. “I pray your success daily!” In the letter that was obtained by Deadline Detroit, Kilpatrick argues that the judge and trial…

Elijah Cummings’s Wife Hit With New Allegations Of Self-Dealing And Perjury In Updated IRS Complaint

The wife of House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings is facing new allegations of self-dealing and perjury following the disclosure of financial dealings between her charity and her for-profit consulting firm, according to an IRS complaint a watchdog group filed Friday in response to a Daily Caller News Foundation report. The National Legal and Policy Center’s complaint is an amendment to its original May 20 complaint against Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’s charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), which alleged that the nonprofit’s overlapping relationship with her for-profit company, Global Policy Solutions, LLC, could have derived an “illegal private benefit” for…

MN investigation shows Rep. Omar filed EIGHT YEARS of false tax returns

An investigation into campaign finance violations by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar reveals she committed numerous felonies, including filing joint tax returns with a man she wasn’t married to. Minnesota’s Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board found Omar used campaign funds for personal out-of-state travel and legal expenses in violation of state law, and ordered her to reimburse her campaign committee $3,469.23 for the expenses. But there was something much more damning in the report that isn’t making it into the mainstream news. “BREAKING – Important Ilhan Omar thread on just-released campaign finance investigation conclusions: The report’s finding that @IlhanMN committed SIX…

High-Tech U.S. Bomb Parts to Be Built in Saudi Arabia

When the Trump administration declared an emergency last month and fast-tracked the sale of more American arms to Saudi Arabia, it did more than anger members of Congress who opposed the sale on humanitarian grounds. It also raised concerns that the Saudis could gain access to technology that would let them produce their own versions of American precision-guided bombs — weapons they have used in strikes on civilians since they began fighting a war in Yemen four years ago. The emergency authorization allows Raytheon Company, a top American defense firm, to team with the Saudis to build high-tech bomb parts…

Trump Just Poked The Dragon In The Eye, And U.S.-China Relations Just Took An Ominous Turn For The Worse

After what President Trump just did, the odds of the U.S. and China being able to reach a trade agreement this year officially just went from slim to none.  For China, there is no issue more sensitive than the status of Taiwan.  For the Chinese, it is unthinkable for anyone to even suggest that Taiwan is not a part of China, and the Chinese are prepared to defend their “one China” policy to the death if necessary.  On the other hand, most Americans are entirely clueless about Taiwan.  In fact, if you gave them a blank map of the world…

VIDEO: Massive migrant mob WALKS AROUND border wall

There’s a big beautiful border wall in Arizona, and the illegal immigrants who walk right around it are gladly turning themselves in to Border Patrol agents to begin their new life in the land of opportunity. “Video of a large group of 134 Central Americans walking around the end of the border wall in Sasabe on Tuesday,” CBP Arizona posted to Twitter Wednesday. “The group immediately surrendered to @CBP #USBP agents. Eight people in the group were hospitalized.” The night vision footage shows a steady stream of dark spots winding through the sagebrush and around the end of the large…

Norman police responded to a report of an individual with a gunshot wound at 8:44 p.m. Wednesday to the…

Trump to Declare New National Emergency to Impose Tariffs on Mexico – Report

Trump announced the US will impose 5% tariffs on Mexico effective on Monday, 10 June. The tarriffs will increase by 5% each month up to a maximum of 25% by October. The measure was conceived to counter Mexico’s inability to stop the influx of illegal immigrants from Central and South American countries. The Hill reported on Thursday citing a draft declaration obtained by their website that US President Trump plans to declare another national emergency to impose the tariffs on Mexico over its perceived role in the illegal immigrant crisis in America. According to language in the document, the declaration is necessary due to “failure of the Government of Mexico to take effective…

Trump Whines About AT&T, Ignores His FCC Has Spent Two Years Kissing The Company’s Ass

While there are countless news outlets that justifiably criticize the President, Trump has long been particularly fixated on CNN. So fixated, in fact, that it’s believed this disdain for the network (in addition to Rupert Murdoch’s competitive desires) played a starring role in his DOJ’s bungled effort to try and block AT&T’s $86 billion merger with CNN parent company Time Warner. This week, Trump doubled down once again, proclaiming that the public should stop using AT&T services as punishment for CNN’s criticism of the President: The tirade resulted in a fairly feeble effort to get the #DumpATT hashtag trending on…

Warren and Jayapal Launch Probe into ‘Rapid, Cynical, and Unethical’ Profiteering Off Trump Child Detention Policy by Former Top Aide John Kelly

Two Democratic lawmakers on Thursday morning launched an investigation into a former top Trump administration official who is profiting off the White House’s policy of family separation and child detention. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) sent an open letter (pdf) to the head of Jim Van Dusen, the CEO of Caliburn International, which recently hired former Gen. John Kelly, who ran President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security until January 2, 2019, and later became White House chief of staff.  Caliburn manages Comprehensive Health Services, Inc. (CHSi). CHSi runs the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Florida…

Pelosi tells Dems she wants to see Trump ‘in prison’
