Democracy and freedom won today in the UK, now America!

Democracy and freedom won today in the UK, now America!

Democracy is on the rise! Freedom loving people are waking up to the corruption and power hungry elites of Socialism. The consolidation of power for the one world globalization groups that have been stealing average citizens lives for for their centralized control were dealt a blow. I simply hope that it continues to spread. The people of the world can let freedom and democracy truly grow from the stranglehold that these Socialist elites have taken from us all … Read entire article »

The Left Endangers the Rest of Us When It Uses Terms Like ‘Haters’ and ‘Bigots’

In August 2012, a gunman entered the office building in downtown Washington, D.C., that houses the Family Research Council (FRC), a Christian organization dedicated to traditional moral teaching. By his own account, available on video, he was alerted by secular progressive “watchdog” groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, that painted the FRC as a “hate group.” The shooter explained that this made him intend to kill as many of its members as he could, as he later told the FBI. In the event, he fired at and hit a security guard, who disarmed him before his dream of mass murder could be fulfilled. As was noted at the trial, where the gunman was given a twenty-five-year sentence, without that guard’s quick action, in all likelihood the result would have been a … Read entire article »

Senators Aim to ‘Thread Needle’ With Gun Control Measure

Hours after the Senate failed to advance another round of measures aimed to limit gun sales, a bipartisan group of senators today introduced what they call compromise legislation to bar some terrorism suspects from buying firearms. They say their bill intends to achieve the delicate balance of preventing those suspected of having terrorist ties from buying guns—while preserving their right to due process. “We are not finished with this war on terrorism,” said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who helped write the bill, in an interview with The Daily Signal. “We want to help prevent future attacks while also protecting people’s constitutional rights. We feel like we thread the needle as best as we can.” The bill is the latest response from Congress after the terrorist attack June 12 at a nightclub in … Read entire article »

House GOP bets on tax rate cuts and 'bold' reform

Joseph Lawler House Republicans under Speaker Paul Ryan are set to unveil a plan for an ambitious tax reform Friday, one that would aim to restore business competitiveness while lowering tax rates while at the same time avoiding some of the political traps that have bedeviled previous GOP tax efforts in recent years.

The dirty two dozen: Clinton's top controversies

Sarah Westwood Donald Trump kicked off what many have hailed as a pivot to the general election with a speech Wednesday blasting his likely opponent, Hillary Clinton, for her controversial conduct as secretary of state. While the presumptive Republican nominee is no stranger to scandal himself, he argued Clinton’s contact with donors to her family’s foundation while serving as the nation’s chief diplomat created a situation that allowed special interest groups to thrive as long as they were writing checks to Clinton and her husband. “Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft,” Trump said Wednesday in his… examinerpolitics.com … Read entire article »

Gowdy, White House in talks over classifying Benghazi report

Joel Gehrke Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Thursday that one of the final hurdles to releasing a final report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi is an ongoing negotiation with the Obama administration over how much of the report should be classified. Gowdy participated in the Senate Republican lunch Thursday, and a senator at the lunch said Gowdy noted the issue of classification, raising the prospect that some information in the final report may not become public. “The fact that you have to go to the White House for a lot of this indicates big-time problems,” Sen. examinerpolitics.com … Read entire article »

Obama admits he's out of options on immigration, Supreme Court

Nicole Duran President Obama admitted Thursday that he’s powerless to do anything more on his own to ease immigration rules after the Supreme Court struck down his 2014 executive actions in a 4-4 decision, and indicated he’s equally powerless to get a ninth Supreme Court judge on the bench to prevent more split decisions. “You know, I have pushed to the limits of my executive authority,” Obama said shortly after the Supreme Court ruled 4-4 in a key immigration case, which effectively locked in a lower court ruling against Obama’s executive actions. “I don’t anticipate that there are additional executive actions that we can take … examinerpolitics.com … Read entire article »

Clinton withheld emails discussing secret server

Sarah Westwood An email discussing the possibility that Hillary Clinton’s emails could be “accessible” if the State Department was aware of her private network was not among the roughly 30,000 records the former secretary of state submitted to the government in late 2014. The chain, which was obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch and made public Wednesday, indicated Clinton was concerned that releasing her email address to the State Department would expose her records to the Freedom of Information Act.

Do College Campuses Have Less Freedom of Speech Now?

Perfect: Ex tech aide for ‘most transparent public official’ in modern era pleads the Fifth over 125 times… in a day

**Written by Doug Powers In early March Hillary Clinton praised herself as the most transparent public official in modern times. As a matter of fact, her only apparent failing as a public official that she didn’t let any of the people who worked for her at the time know that: Hillary Clinton IT specialist Bryan Pagliano invoked the Fifth more than 125 times during a 90-minute, closed-door deposition Wednesday with the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, a source with the group told Fox News. The official said Pagliano was working off an index card and read the same crafted statement each time. Earlier this month I wrote that Pagliano was taking more Fifths than a liquor store burglar, but he eclipsed his record by far on Wednesday. The bar has been raised, Lois Lerner!
