President Donald Trump’s remarkable speech at Mt. Rushmore on Friday night — Monica Showalter, Deputy Editor at American Thinker, called it “his finest speech ... the speech of his presidency” — not only celebrated the giants whose faces are carved into the granite wall behind him, but also called out the enemies of the republic.
With the Senate confirmation of Judge Cory Wilson to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, the president has now successfully appointed 200 judicial nominees to the federal bench. As CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin put it, “Judicial confirmations may be President Trump’s most important legacy. They will shape the nation’s laws on abortion, LGBT rights, voting rights, and many other issues long after Trump leaves office.”
The cultural Marxists have now declared war on the Founding Fathers as race-hustling CNN personality Angela Rye called for all statues of George Washington an Thomas Jefferson to be taken down on Thursday. Rye, an attorney and the founder of IMPACT Strategies, a left-wing political advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., made the remarks on CNN Thursday. She was responding to Daily Beast editor John Avlon's contention that George Washington focused his life on trying to unite the nation.
The decision to move the Republican Party’s National Convention from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Jacksonville, Florida, was announced with a flourish on Thursday night. Said Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee : We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion in the great city of Jacksonville. Not only does Florida hold a special place in President Trump’s heart as his home state [he and Melania officially moved there from New York City in November 2019], but it is crucial in the path to victory in 2020...
As President Donald Trump cracks down on federal benefits to Big Tech giants over the silencing of conservatives and Christians, The New American magazine is one of many outlets that have come under relentless assault by Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and other government-aided companies. In recent weeks, the censorship has become drastically worse.
A persistent myth percolating this election season is that former Vice President Joe Biden, the probable nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States this year, is some sort of “moderate.” This centrist image is being cultivated by the media, as a way of contrast to President Donald Trump’s supposed “right-wing extremist” image, and the looney Left in Biden’s own Democratic Party — those such as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, or Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
President Donald Trump issued an executive order on May 28 targeting Big Tech companies for discriminating against conservatives and Christians, vowing to end federal support as well as liability protections for the Deep State-controlled firms if they continue silencing viewpoints their bosses disagree with. The U.S. president, whose supporters have long been targets of the Silicon Valley elite, blasted the social-media giants for their discrimination and also threatened that federal legislation might be coming soon to help rein in the attacks on free speech. There are even potential national-security concerns at stake, the president suggested.
Violent protests have rocked Minneapolis for a second day and night, following the death of George Floyd, a black man, while being arrested by the local police. Thirty fires along East Lake Street have been reported by the Minneapolis Fire Department, and looters have used Floyd’s death as an excuse to steal from fellow citizens who had nothing to do with the incident that took place on Monday of this week.
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called out President Donald Trump last week for allegedly frightening illegal immigrants so bad that they're not seeking medical attention. AOC claims that illegals in her district are hesitant to get tested for COVID-19 due to a belief that immigration officials might be lurking in hospitals, ready to pounce and deport them.
On March 24, President Donald Trump said he wanted the country and the economy “opened up and just raring to go by Easter.” Easter came and went. And Trump was mocked for being aspirational and unrealistic. Yet, with Ascension Thursday at hand, 40 days after Easter, the president seems to have been ahead of his time.
The Deep State and its minions are freaking out over the exoneration of General Micheal Flynn , who briefly served as President Donald Trump's National Security Advisor before being set up by establishment operatives from the Obama administration's FBI. Transcripts confirming that the phony “Russiagate” scandal was a fraud are reportedly set to be released, too.
Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal, who once led American forces in Afghanistan, is serving as an advisor to a Democratic Party-supporting political action committee in its plans to disrupt the social-media support for President Donald Trump in the upcoming election. The group is called Defeat Disinfo, and it will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to follow discussion of Trump’s public statements and refute online efforts by Trump supporters to defend what they consider distortions and bias perpetrated by the liberal media, which are largely in league with the Democratic Party.
In this exclusive interview with The New American's Alex Newman, legendary political operative and longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone talks about the Deep State effort to take down Trump's closest associates such as Gen. Mike Flynn and him. He also talks about Democrat Biden's racist baggage, his declining mental faculties, the 2020 election, and other political observations. Finally, he discusses his upcoming trip to prison--absent a pardon from Trump--and his decision to put his faith in Jesus Christ at the urging of Franklin Graham.
President Donald Trump told a gathering of governors in Washington on Thursday about his plan to reopen the U.S. economy, calling it “Opening up America Again.” He said, “We are not opening all at once but one careful step at a time.” Based on advice from his advisors, it calls for a three-phase, “science-based” strategy that he is recommending to the states.
President Donald Trump’s Tweet early Thursday morning pushed crude oil prices up more than 20 percent: “Just spoke to my friend MBS (Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!”
Even the New York Times, in a front-page story — above the fold — has recognized the obvious. “Pandemic tempts leaders to seize sweeping powers,” reads the headline, raising the question of whether many of the increased powers of government, and the corresponding contraction of liberty, will emerge as permanent features of life around the globe.
A growing number of Bernie Sanders voters are threatening to leave the Democrat Party should former vice president and front-runner Joe Biden continue on to become the Democrat nominee for president in 2020. Should their threat become a reality, it would likely assure President Donald Trump’s reelection in November.
During his press conference in the Rose Garden on Friday President Donald Trump promised to fill the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, or SPR, “right up to the top, saving the American taxpayer billions and billions of dollars, helping our oil industry, [and furthering] that wonderful goal — which we’ve achieved, which nobody thought was possible — of energy independence.”
It now appears that Joe Biden will win the Democratic Party’s nomination to face Donald Trump in November. His only hurdle is Bernie Sanders, the “Extreme Leftist.” Biden is characterized as less radical so perhaps he should be referred to as a mere “Hard Leftist,” a bit less extreme. But the mass media has already attached the label “Moderate“ to the former vice president.
William Kristol and his band of NeverTrumpers at The Bulwark, an online site, are gleefully celebrating Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday victories over Bernie Sanders. Some of them would even vote for Biden (or China's Xi Jinpeng) over Donald Trump. Undoubtedly, some of them would even vote for Bernie over Trump — except that it would be harder to explain their voting rationale and resume their undeserved positions as “conservative” thought leaders any time in the near future. Cheering for Biden, though, can be played by the neocons as both anti-Trump and anti-Bernie.
After dropping an estimated $700 million into his campaign, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called it a day on Wednesday morning: “I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
With low unemployment numbers, high stock market numbers, and the failure of the twin ruses of the Mueller investigation and the absurd Democrat impeachment effort in the past year, you might think that the nation’s conservatives might want to rest a bit. But that’s far from the case according to American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, whose group hosts the Conservative Political Action Conference, more commonly known as CPAC.
Before former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg threw his hat into the 2020 presidential race, he defended the New York Police Department’s use of “stop, question and frisk” policing. At a United States Naval Academy’s 2019 Leadership Conference, Bloomberg said, “We focused on keeping kids from going through the correctional system ... kids who walked around looking like they might have a gun, remove the gun from their pockets and stop it.” He claimed that as a result of his policy, New York’s murder rate fell from 650 a year to 300 the year he left office.
Having been thoroughly trounced by fellow far-leftist Bernie Sanders in every contest of the early primary season, faux Cherokee Elizabeth Warren seems to be forgetting how angry she was at Sanders only a few weeks ago over alleged misogynistic comments. Instead, she is now taking firm aim at the race’s newcomer, billionaire Mike Bloomberg.
A Pew Research Center survey about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) released recently showed that the alliance’s favorability rating has fallen in both the United States and France. The Pew organization itself characterized NATO members’ views optimistically, stating, “NATO is generally seen in a positive light across publics within the alliance.” However, a Reuters report about the survey noted, “NATO’s public image in the United States and France worsened sharply last year.”
Attorney General William Barr is the smartest, stupidest, most courageous, most cowardly, quite conscientious, perhaps corrupt official in government — Barr none. All these interpretations, and maybe more, have been promulgated to explain why we continue seeing what many describe as a “two-tiered” (in)justice system. The latest example, adding to the list of Deep State deceivers escaping prosecution, is the Friday announcement that the Department of Justice has declined to prosecute ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe
In a bipartisan vote on Thursday, the U.S. Senate voted 55-45 to limit the ability of President Donald Trump to go to war against Iran. The vote came several weeks after Trump’s bold strike, killing an Iranian general. While it is not surprising that Democrats voted to limit Trump — some Democrats would vote against Trump any chance they had — it was noteworthy that eight Republicans joined in supporting the resolution authored by Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia.
President Donald Trump fired Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman and Gordon Sondland from their respective positions on the National Security Council and as ambassador to the European Union on Friday. Despite media howls to the contrary, it was an action he absolutely needed to take. The only problem is that he did not do so months ago.
When Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney decided to vote to convict the president for the abuse of power he knew he’d get blowback. “I know there’s going to be a lot of blowback from leaders in my party here [in Washington],” he said. “I presume I’ll receive the same reaction from leaders in my party in Utah. Of course, the animosity that might be leveled from people in the street is going to be real as well.”
It hasn’t been a good week for the Democrats. The Iowa Caucuses were a disaster, the U.S. Senate ended the sham impeachment with a party-line acquittal yesterday, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s petulant performance when she tore up her copy of Trump’s State of the Union address has backfired. Rank-and-file Democrats are angry about the childish stunt and abandoning the party.
On Saturday evening, Americans got a small glimpse into the distorted mind of the mainstream news media and found out exactly what the anchors and punditry of CNN, in particular, think of them. Frustrated and grasping at straws in their orchestrated attempt with Democrats to remove Donald Trump from office, host Don Lemon and pundit guests turned to mocking and verbally abusing the president’s supporters.
The new Hulu docuseries about Hillary Clinton and the 2016 presidential campaign — entitled Hillary — premiered on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Unsurprisingly, the four-part series, which is set to be released to the public on March 6, is said to be a non-critical look at Clinton and the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election.
Donald Trump made history January 24 when he attended and addressed the 46th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the first president ever to appear at the iconic pro-life gathering, which began in 1974, the year after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized abortion in the United States with its infamous Roe v. Wade decision.
An already-fractured Democrat Party is dealing with more splinters as its former standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, tore into one of the party’s frontrunners for this year’s presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Clinton made the remarks in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter in advance of the new Hulu mini-series Hillary, which will premier at the Sundance Film Festival.
Leftist ideas about eliminating the Electoral College or packing the courts may seem to epitomize total lust for power, but they’re nothing compared to a more recent proposal: to “Pack the Union.” The scheme, laid out in the supposedly prestigious Harvard Law Review, advocates reducing Washington D.C.’s size to just a few federal buildings and then turning the city’s 127 neighborhoods into states. With the area being a Democrat stronghold, this would add 254 far-left senators and 127 far-left representatives to Congress.
During Tuesday night’s Democratic Party presidential debate in Des Moines, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota reiterated her “Decency Check” that she has been touting in recent days, as part of her effort to increase her support before the Iowa caucus contests (the first in the national contest that will ultimately determine the Democratic Party nominee to challenge Republican President Donald Trump).
The directed killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s blood-soaked field marshal in the “forever war” of the Middle East, has begun to roil the politics of both the region and the USA. A stunned and shaken Iran retaliated by firing a dozen missiles at two U.S. bases in Iraq. Yet, before launching the attack, Iran signaled that its retaliation would be strictly proportionate, to avoid an escalation.
Late U.S. Senator John McCain wasn’t just an enemy of the prisoners of war the U.S. government left behind in Vietnam. He bitterly hated and opposed Donald Trump, so much so that McCain collaborated in the effort to smear the president with the notorious Steele Dossier, assembled by British spy Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS, a paid consultant for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
While Washington is focused on the impeachment proceedings, consumers are either online or at the mall doing their Christmas shopping. That’s almost all one needs to know about Donald Trump’s reelection chances next November. As the anti-Trump Washington Post painfully admitted, “Voters tend to base their vote on how the economy performed in the year leading up to the election.”
Fresh on the heels of a warning that the United Nations may use force against countries defying its climate-change mandates, the world body has just informed the United States that “it cannot avoid compensating poorer nations hit by climate change, despite Donald Trump honoring his election promise of leaving the 2015 Paris climate agreement,” reports Breitbart.
Former Vice President Joe Biden says his staff members did not tell him about the possible conflict of interest that involved him and his son, Hunter, vis-à-vis their dealings in Ukraine. But that revelation in Biden’s recent interview with National Public Radio is, in a sense, old news. The warning from a top official at State, ignored by Biden’s staff, went public some time ago.
The latest poll from Gallup shows Donald Trump to be impervious to the three-ring impeachment circus performing daily in Washington and being covered by a supportive media. As Gallup reported on Wednesday, “Despite days of focus by national and international news media on the impeachment proceedings currently underway in the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump’s job approval rating remains statistically similar to where it has been for weeks. [Our] latest poll failed to show a noticeable impact of the impeachment hearings in Congress on [his] presidential approval.”
The most recent analysis of poll data finds that Democrats are likely to turn out as the big losers in their impeachment gamble. Even as that analysis shows the impeachment machine is losing steam, President Trump’s approval ratings are gaining. As predicted, impeachment seems to be backfiring for Democrats.
Considering that President Donald Trump has been quite vocal in his intentions to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate agreement (which had been accepted as binding on the United States by then-President Barack Obama), speculation has it that he will now do so. According to the terms of the 2016 agreement — reached November 4 of that year — a nation could not pull out during the first three years.
After a three-year witch-hunt in the form of one investigation, probe, or inquiry after another, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Monday afternoon that House Democrats will vote Thursday to establish the procedures for their impeachment investigation of President Donald Trump. Having conducted all of this with dishonesty from the very beginning, Democrats now promise "transparency" as they move forward.
In this episode of Behind The Deep State, host Alex Newman exposes how and why the Deep State destroyed Syria. You will learn how the Obama administration and other Deep State powers teamed up with Al Qaeda and other jihadists there, eventually unleashing the Islamic State or ISIS. Then, under the guise of fighting the Islamist threat the Deep State created, the Deep State started arming and training communist terrorist groups seeking to enslave Kurdish people. The audacity of criticizing Trump for withdrawing U.S. forces boggles the mind. Do not be deceived!
Ruling-class Democrats might whisper to each other and even tell the media that Joe Biden can’t defeat President Trump, but it appears that rank-and-file voters don’t agree. Biden’s latest numbers in the Real Clear Politics average of voter polls put him 5.4 points ahead of Elizabeth Warren, a shade less than last week’s six-point lead, but still close to what he polled then.
From the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump has encouraged prayers for himself and for the country. The TV evangelist who brought Trump to faith in Jesus Christ, Paula White, played a key role during his inauguration and then again during the president’s reelection rally in Orlando last June.
