CRC Special Report Unveils Vast “Dark Money” Network on the Left

CRC Special Report Unveils Vast “Dark Money” Network on the Left


Via: Sparty On  •  15 comments  •  10 hours ago
The political Left often criticizes—and the mainstream media frequently report on—the network of center-right nonprofits funded by billionaire entrepreneurs Charles and David Koch. But few politicos know of a left-wing leviathan in Washington, D.C., with a reach rivaling that of the Koch network. This study by the Capital Research Center documents a shadowy web into which nearly $600...

Why Trump Is Suddenly So Worried About the Mueller Report


Via: Krishna  •  51 comments  •  8 hours ago
President Trump wants America to know that he is totally innocent. At the same time, he seems increasingly nervous about the public seeing a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings, which Attorney General William Barr says he will release Thursday. Though Trump has in the past expressed indifference to the potential release of the report, he’s now railing against...

Just when you thought presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s list of talents couldn’t get any longer.

Many of the   Marine Corps‘ iconic battles such as Iwo Jima and Inchon are decades in the past, and the amphibious assaults that were once the service’s calling card seem to have fallen by the wayside in a world of artificial intelligence weaponry, cyberwarfare and the Pentagon’s strategic focus on outer space and great-power rivals such as   China   and   Russia.

Donald Trump and his supporters are having a field day in response to the news that former vice president Joe Biden’s affectionate style of politicking has made a handful of women uncomfortable over the years. While these women aren’t alleging sexual assault, they do have the right to come forward and share any type of behavior that made them feel violated. It’s a demonstration of just how...

Trump's Madman Rush To Get Rid Of Health Care For Millions


By: JohnRussell  •  70 comments  •  one week ago
The "rush" is to solidify his base. Trump knows that the vast majority of his supporters oppose Obamacare , in many cases simply because it recalls the previous president. The election to decide whether or not he will continue in office past 2020 is coming in about 18 months, and Trump wants to get all his "deplorables" into the basket and ready to vote him back in. He can now spend the next...
