The man who famously lied about having evidence of Trump/Russia collusion has now told us that American voters cannot be trusted to determine the next election. Finally, it's out in the open! The man whom leftist news commentators have been swooning over all week has come right out and told us the reason for this impeachment scam. All credibility for arguments of the President trying to...

Authority granted to the federal government to secretly wiretap and spy on former Trump affiliate Carter Page was “not valid,” the nation’s top spy court  noted in a secret ruling  penned earlier this month.

Today the U.S. Supreme Court hears a case that could determine whether parents and taxpayers have any choices about the kind of religion American children are taught with taxpayer funds.   Espinoza v.

Young Americans Want Trump Gone

Young Americans Want Trump Gone


By: JohnRussell  •  107 comments  •  12 hours ago
Almost 2/3 of Americans age 18-29 think President Trump should be found guilty in his impeachment trial and removed from office, according to a new poll released by Pew research.  "63% of those under 30 say the trial should lead to Trump’s removal." I wonder how many of that 63% will be persuaded over the next 10 months to change their opinion of Trump and vote for him in November....

Obama is as guilty as sin.  He attempted a coup against the next President of the United States before he left office during Trumps transition.  He should be locked 🔒 up for that.  
Jan 04 8:11am @2.1.2 "..." But have steadfastly refused to admit!!!

All thanks to our President for being involved in and approving this attack against top Iranian terrorist leadership.  The man responsible for the killing of hundreds of Americans is now dead.  
Jan 03 12:28pm @4.2.4 See you on Tuesday, Nov 3rd.  Don't say anything but I heard Biden tell an audience to get out and vote on Nov 11.  It will be our secret!
Jan 03 12:12pm @12.1.8 I think we all got it the first time.
Jan 03 11:56am @12.1.5 Obviously you don't. I'm glad you were able to give people the progressive perspective. People need to know.
Jan 03 11:03am @5.1.12 "..." That was Obama's explanation. If so it was the government of the Shah's money.They agreed to limit their nuclear program.At a tremendous cost. Sanctions were lifted, Russia was allowed to...
Jan 03 10:50am @6.5.2 "..." They didn't die under her watch?  Who was Secretary of State at the time?
Jan 03 10:48am @4.1.36 And they came back and attacked the Embassy. I'm afraid they will have to stop. De-escalation is still an option for them.
Jan 03 10:43am @6.4.5 There were thoughts for a rescue, nonetheless. Unfortunately, Hillary & Co were more worried about offending the locals and the Marines were ordered to change from military uniforms to civilian...
Jan 03 10:10am @6.4.3 Oh ya, that's right!  BTW, did you know that the media did it again? The New York Times referred to these Iranian operatives as "mourners."They got bagged for...
Jan 03 10:00am @12.1 All those who are reading this.
Jan 03 9:55am @11.1 Is that a death wish?All can see where you stand.
Jan 03 9:54am @6.4.1 Oh ya, the time help was never called. When some were more worried about offending the locals. This was a frightening moment for the Obama/Clinton crowd.
Jan 03 9:44am @8.1 "..." It was justice for a lot of American soldiers, I'm sure.
Jan 03 9:42am @10.1 Scratch monster #1
Jan 03 9:32am @6.3 "In April 2019, the State Department announced Iran was responsible for killing 608 U.S. troops during the Iraq War. Soleimani was the head of the Iranian and Iranian-backed forces carrying out...
Jan 03 9:22am @9 "Look at those faces. We eliminate an enemy of humanity, a mass murdering terrorist making plans to murder more Americans and they’re as sour as they were on 11/8/16. Trump again ruined their...
Jan 03 9:01am @5.1.5 I think the next target should be to knock out all of their nuclear facilities. We have the bombers and specialized bombs for that task.
Jan 03 8:59am @4.2.2 I guess you could say he's more than "fit" for the office of President. I got an idea, let's give him another term!
Jan 03 8:57am @4.1.20 "..." They already attacked the Embassy. Before that they killed an American contractor. Before that they shot down an American drone. Before that they hit allied oil tankers. Before that they...
Jan 03 8:51am @3.1.6 "..." It's who they are!
Jan 03 8:50am @3.1.5 Yup, that's what I expected from the left.
Jan 03 8:49am @3.1.4 "..." I remember when we killed bin Laden and Americans came together in celebration. I think we are going to find the progressives will continue their hatred for this President and might even...
Jan 02 10:16pm @4 They thought they could screw with Trump because it was election season. His name isn't Clinton or Obama - Don't screw with Trump!!!!

Fundraising by Democratic Presidential Candidates Looks Like A Bad Omen For Trump


By: JohnRussell  •  71 comments  •  3 weeks ago
Dave Weigel @daveweigel Trump raised $46 million for the quarter. For all the "impeachment is SURGING Trump's fundraising" stuff (I'm sure it did!), the Dem field is easily going to double him. That is really, really unusual. The 2012 GOP field and 2004 Dem field did not outpace incumbent presidents....
Jan 03 9:59am @11.1 "..." Yup, a lot of money being burned in the DNC primary. Trump's huge war chest is reserved for the General Election.
Jan 03 9:17am @1.4 The amount Trump has raised, just since the faux impeachment is what democrats should be concerned about!  It takes a rare individual to somehow try and turn it around. Nice try, but the dems are...

BAGHDAD — Protesters broke into the heavily guarded compound of the United States Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday and lit fires inside to express their anger over   American airstrikes   that killed 24 members of an Iranian-backed militia over the weekend. Chanting “Death to America!” thousands of protesters and militia members demonstrated outside the embassy compound, throwing rocks,...

Jan 03 8:39am @14.1.2 The little stunt by Iran to threaten the US Embassy in Baghdad. It's Iran that now took a loss. It's Trump that looks strong and Iran that looks weak.
Jan 02 10:20pm @14.1 LMAO!    The left must be more pissed than Ali Khamenei!   It kind of backfired, didn't it?

Jan 01 10:12pm @7.1.7 "..." Their police network?  They have essentially become pacifist nations. It is in our interest to delegate substantial military responsibilities to each of them.
Jan 01 10:08pm @8.2.1 "..." You tell me? What adviser is telling him that a pullout is a good idea. Remember when he wanted out of Syria? Mattis quit!  I don't recall seeing one individual here saying that Trump was...

Jan 01 6:11pm @9.1.2 "..." I do. It was called appeasing both Iran and Russia in order to get an "Iran Deal." 
Jan 01 8:32am @8.1.3 I'd like to know the feelings of other Vets who served in those middle eastern wars.
Jan 01 8:12am @9 Last Updated Dec 31, 2019 7:28 PM EST Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the Tuesday attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad "state-sponsored terror" in an interview with CBS News. But he...
Jan 01 7:59am @5.1.2 The Iraq War?  You guys took that down in what - a month's time?   Too bad our political leaders don't measure up to our military. Thanks for your service.
Jan 01 7:48am @8.1.1 I welcome other Vets who would like to respond to that comment.
Jan 01 7:45am @7.1.5 "..." Not for the US. The US is now an oil producer. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-oil-eia-idUSKBN1O51X7It's Europe and Japan who depend on middle eastern oil. Funny, I never thought...

The acting secretary of Homeland Security is taking aim Tuesday at new laws in New York, New Jersey and other states that allow immigrants to get driver's licenses without proof they are in the U.S. legally, and restrict data sharing with federal authorities. Chad Wolf sent a memo to all the components of Homeland Security, which include U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Coast...
Jan 02 10:33pm @2.1.17 "..." Really?  Teaching our children that America is inherently racist?
Jan 02 10:22pm @2.1.16 "..." I know the feeling. I kind of liked Wisconsin this year.
Jan 02 7:41am @2.1.10 Good Luck
Jan 02 7:41am @2.1.9 "..." Unfortunately, Univision feeds them a steady stream of propaganda.
Jan 02 7:39am @2.1.8 No?  I think you should acquaint yourself with "A People's History of the United States".  So many of our children have been forced to accept it as American history.
Jan 01 10:14pm @2.1.4 "..." It is the anti-American left!Who the hell is preaching toCertainly not to progressives. Remember Ted Kennedy's promise to the Senate?

Anyone who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to design integrated circuits, become an automotive engineer, become a financial adviser, do genetic research, practice law, train to be a physician's assistant, become a corporate cost accountant.       This just kills me.   Apparently Joe has no idea that ' programming ' is a learned skill practiced typically by degree-holding...
Jan 02 10:28pm @1.1 "..." I think many of the 50-something year old coal miners in that audience kind of appreciated the stupidity of it as well
