Satire DOA: Team Hillary names Donna Brazile as part of massive Russia collusion cabal

**Written by Doug Powers The Clinton campaign responding to claims in Donna Brazile’s book by saying she fell for the Russian intrusion and brainwashing effort has got to be a new record for begging the question. The more proof that arises showing Hillary was a bad and unscrupulous candidate will simply be, according to the Clinton faithful, additional “evidence” that the Russian propaganda effort was a success. If the spin below doesn’t work, next there will be Clinton staffers claiming Brazile showed up for work every day at the DNC wearing an “I-heart-Putin” babushka. Dasvidanya, Donna! The open letter signed by more than 100 people involved in Clinton’s White House bid, including chairman John Podesta and vice chairwoman Huma Abedin, said the staffers “do not recognize the campaign” that Brazile “portrays in … Read entire article »

Donna Brazile spills Dem Party’s beans while jumping ship

Donna Brazile spills Dem Party’s beans while jumping ship

**Written by Doug Powers Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile has rolled over on just about every major figure in the Democratic Party in excerpts from her new book, which Brazile hopes is sturdy enough to take shelter under as the Russia narrative collapses right on top of them. There’s also some unintentional humor in it all: Brazile: When I was asked to run the DNC, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign. https://t.co/ODpvvlS46j — … Read entire article »

Was Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Craig Paddock An Anti-Trump Activist With Ties To Antifa?

The mainstream media is trying to tell us that they have no idea why Stephen Craig Paddock fired “thousands of rounds of ammunition” into a crowd at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday.  According to the latest reports, 58 people have died and more than 500 were injured in the attack, and somehow we are supposed to believe that this guy had no motive for doing this whatsoever.  I am not buying that, and I am sure you are not buying that either.  Could it be possible that the mainstream media is covering up the truth because it does not fit their narrative? As you will see below, there appears to be evidence that Stephen Craig Paddock was at an anti-Trump rally in Reno, Nevada in August.  And … Read entire article »

The Globalists Are Systematically Destroying America’s Middle Class

The Globalists Are Systematically Destroying America’s Middle Class

When people are dependent on the government they are much easier to control.  We are often told that we are not “compassionate” when we object to the endless expansion of government social programs, but that is not how the debate should be framed.  In America today, well over 100 million people receive money from the federal government each month, and the number of Americans that are truly financially independent is continually shrinking.  In fact, only … Read entire article »

Welcome To The Hunger Games: Trump’s Tax Plan Is Going To Mean A Battle Royal Among D.C. Lobbyists

Welcome To The Hunger Games: Trump’s Tax Plan Is Going To Mean A Battle Royal Among D.C. Lobbyists

Are you ready for mass chaos in Washington?  There are lobbyists for just about every cause that you can possibly imagine, and they are always working hard to influence members of Congress on their particular issues.  But when you are talking about a major tax reform bill, that is something that virtually every single lobbyist in the entire city will want to be involved in.  Our tax code is over two million words long, and … Read entire article »

This Ukrainian Regiment Began With Civilian Volunteers. Now It’s Going Pro.

URZUF, Ukraine—At the Azov Regiment’s base in this beach resort town on the Sea of Azov coast, you can sometimes hear the sounds of shelling from the front lines, which are about 42 miles east of here, toward the Russian border. Yet, on this blustery summer day in late August, tourists are out swimming on the public beach down below the military base—even though it’s a little cold out and there’s a war 45 minutes away by car. Even in war, after all, life goes on. Those intrepid tourists are enjoying the last few days of summer before students go back to school on Sept. 1. As summer fades to a close before the new school year, the war was also supposed to end on Sept. 1 as part of a “back … Read entire article »

How Character and Statecraft Shaped the Post-World War Order

Seventy-two years after the end of World War II, Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s leadership remains a shining example of statecraft for leaders in our own day. It is this great British figure that historian and public intellectual Lewis E. Lehrman writes about in his latest book, “Churchill, Roosevelt & Company: Studies in Character and Statecraft.” The book provides Lehrman’s readers with the fruit of a lifetime of deep scholarship. Many assume that American entry into World War II was inevitable. But in fact the U.S. only declared war on the Axis powers after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which was well into the war. American entry into World War II was by no means a given. In his book, Lehrman reveals how Churchill skillfully and restlessly pursued American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt … Read entire article »

Trump’s Foreign Trip Tells a Tale of 2 Europes

The reception for President Donald Trump received in two European countries during his second foreign trip couldn’t be more different. In Poland, Trump was greeted by cheering crowds as he stood in the sunshine in Krasinski Square. This is where Pope John Paul II made an earthshaking address in 1979 as the Cold War entered its final phase. Trump’s speech was superbly crafted and rich in historical context, and it was firm in commitment to the freedom and prosperity of all of Europe. Of course, it was particularly tailored to Poland, a country with which the United States has deep and warm ties. As a bulwark against the inroads of Russian propaganda and influence peddling, which the Kremlin is targeting at the European media and political systems, Trump’s presence in Poland and his … Read entire article »

Flags of Steel: How a Combat Veteran Works to Unite Americans

An Air Force veteran in Utah uses his talent and passion to make, display, and sell images of the one thing he believes can help unite Americans: the nation’s flag. Creating the flag out of steel is his way of bringing people together, Josh Vandenbrink says in an interview with The Daily Signal, and of being a part of the dialogue in politics without getting directly involved. “It’s a way to connect with the community,” Vandenbrink says, on “common ground [because] we can all love the flag.” Vandenbrink served in Air Force special operations as a pararescueman, deploying 21 times over 14 years to the Middle East and Africa. Now he runs Iron Mountain Designs, which describes itself as a quality furnishing company that creates pieces for homes, businesses, and public spaces. 37-year-old … Read entire article »

This County Switched From Backing Obama to Trump. Here’s What Happened.

COLEBROOK, N.H.—His left foot in a walking boot after surgery, Rick Samson, an independent-minded county commissioner in the northernmost part of New Hampshire, is behind the wheel of his pickup truck, describing how this region—“North Country” to locals—is used to going it alone. “I run as a Republican, however I consider myself neither a Republican or Democrat, or conservative, or liberal—I am an American and that’s where it starts,” Samson, 70, says in a New England … Read entire article »

This New Hampshire County Switched From Obama to Trump. How the Opioid Crisis May Have Influenced That.

COLEBROOK, N.H.—His left foot in a walking boot after surgery, Rick Samson, an independent-minded county commissioner in the northernmost part of New Hampshire, is behind the wheel of his pickup truck, describing how this region—“North Country” to locals—is used to going it alone. “I run as a Republican, however I consider myself neither a Republican or Democrat, or conservative, or liberal—I am an American and that’s where it starts,” Samson, 70, says in a New England accent that reveals exactly where he’s from. So it’s totally within character for the people of Coos County, whom Samson serves, to depend on themselves to overcome the county’s distinction as the place with the highest combined death rate due to drugs, alcohol, or suicide in all of New England. Part 1 of 5: The Crisis That … Read entire article »

Why Conservatives Still Attack Trump

When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options: 1) Cease admiring them, or 2) try to understand them and change their minds. In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Donald Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason—beside the fact that I simply like many of them—is what I refer to as “moral bank accounts.” Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make a withdrawal. These conservatives have made so many deposits into their moral bank accounts that, in my view, their accounts all remain firmly in the black. That means my only choice is option two. But to try … Read entire article »

We Hear You: I’m a Sailor, a Marine, and a Transgender Woman Who Was Born This Way

Editor’s note: One reader who we heard from awhile back marked March 31 as Transgender Day of Visibility. So this weekend seemed like a fitting opportunity  to publish the letter as the lead item in our mailbag.—Ken McIntyre  Dear Daily Signal: At first I was going to ignore Kelsey Harkness’ video report and the comments, but there comes a time when what I served our great nation for must be stated plainly (“Lost Voices in the Transgender Debate: Liberals and Conservatives Unite”). I served for all Americans. I served so that you may hold opinions not based in logic, reason, or science. I served for your rights and freedoms. So by all means, feel free to express your beliefs and opinions. I served as an enlisted person in the Navy and as an officer in the best … Read entire article »

In Ukraine, Russia Weaponizes Fake News to Fight a Real War

In Ukraine, Russia Weaponizes Fake News to Fight a Real War

KYIV, Ukraine—As the Russian shells and rockets rained down on them in the front-line town of Debaltseve in February 2015, Ukrainian troops began to receive curious, anonymous SMS messages on their cellphones. “Your comrades nearby already left their positions, so you should leave yours as well,” one message read. The messages also claimed that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, as well as Ukrainian military commanders, had “betrayed” the soldiers. The Ukrainian military later concluded that Russian military forces had … Read entire article »

Al Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ trailer reminds us we’re still going to die, just a little later than originally predicted

**Written by Doug Powers Same shtick, different decade: Al Gore presented a new trailer for “An Inconvenient Sequel” during CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, a decade after he promoted the original “An Inconvenient Truth.” The former vice president revealed presented the trailer during the Paramount presentation and was warmly received by the audience. “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” opens July 28. Released in 2006, “An Inconvenient Truth” was a solid performer for Paramount with nearly $50 million in worldwide grosses. “The power of entertainment to inform us has made us more socially aware,” Gore said Tuesday. This is basically an anti-Trump ad disguised as a “climate change Armageddon” disaster movie (aerial footage courtesy of Leo DiCaprio’s private jet): Because Gore wanted to insinuate that capitalism is a threat to humanity’s survival while avoiding charges … Read entire article »

Valerie Jarrett Has Moved Into Obama’s Anti-Trump Command Center To Aid In The Effort To Sabotage The President

Never before have we seen a previous president and his team openly attempt to sabotage the next president, but that is precisely what is happening. Traditionally, most ex-presidents have chosen to move far away from Washington, but Barack Obama decided to purchase a home less than two miles from the White House, and many of his former staff members are either working directly with him or are working for his political organization Organizing for Action. … Read entire article »
