Paul, Lee only Senators to stand with Trump administration on Russia sanctions

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) were the only Senators in either party to support the Trump administration’s position on Russia sanctions on Wednesday. Although the White House has yet to take an official position on the bill, their displeasure with it is clear. It is said that the administration’s objection to the Senate bill was principally grounded in the fact it prevents the President negotiating any downgrade in sanctions without the approval of Congress. President Trump, who often emphasizes his negotiating skills, was no doubt disappointed about having this issue taken out of his hands. This was… Keep Reading

Her appointment was pushed by Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who had been impressed by Cindy’s work on humanitarian issues, which Ivanka is focusing on as part of her role as Assistant to the President. This demonstrates the sheer level of influence Ivanka continues to wield over her father.

Rand Paul (R-KY) strongly defended the administration and criticized the Senate Intelligence Committee’s ongoing investigation of the Trump’s administration’s ties to Russia during a Monday interview with Jake Tapper on CNN. “I still think that we’ve got a Special Counsel, let them do their job. The rest is all for show. This is political theater.

Puerto Rico Wastes Everyone’s Time With Another Statehood/Independence Referendum

Puerto Ricans overwhelmingly chose statehood on Sunday in a non-binding vote in a vote that will likely change absolutely nothing with regards to the US territory’s status. Turnout was the lowest of any vote on the island in over 50 years, with almost eight out of 10 voters not even showing up at the polls. According to the island’s election commission (CEE in Spanish) had reported that about 23 percent of the island’s eligible voters had cast ballots and 97 percent of the votes were for statehood. Puerto Rico’s Governor, Ricardo Rosselló, had been pushing for a “yes” for statehood… Keep Reading

Trump allies set to play key role in new British government

Thursday’s general election in the United Kingdom, although a total disaster for the British Prime Minister Theresa May, will undoubtedly be seen as good news by President Donald Trump. The Conservative Party lost its majority in the House of Commons, forcing it to seek support from the socially conservative and deeply patriotic Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) from Northern Ireland. The DUP quickly agreed, signing a confidence and supply agreement to prop up the Conservatives providing their demands are met. The DUP has often been accused by the left of having ties to right-wing militias such as the Ulster Volunteer Force… Keep Reading

Trump Social Media Director Reprimanded For Tweet Attacking Justin Amash

White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino is in hot water after the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) stated he had broken federal law in calling for a primary challenge against Rep.

Scavino is said to have violated the Hatch Act, which limits the ability of certain federal employees to engage in political activity, when he tweeted in April: “Donald Trump is bringing auto plants & jobs back to Michigan.

Trump Backtracks On Support For Cuba Diplomacy, Sides With Marco Rubio

President Donald Trump is reportedly set to backtrack on his past support for opening up diplomacy with Cuba, and instead bring back aspects of the 54 year long embargo against the island nation. According to Fox News, he will announce this policy shift during a speech in Miami on Friday. Trump is likely to close the U.S. embassy in Cuba’s capital, Havana, and reimpose restrictions on flights to Cuba from the United States. Although the former decision was expected, the latter is a surprisingly radical move that will heavily affect freedom of travel for ordinary Americans, given that Cuba is just 90 miles from… Keep Reading

Qatar’s Leader Suggests Coup Against Trump, Throws Arab NATO Proposal Into Doubt

Qatari Emir Hamad Al-Thani has thrown the Trump administration’s Arab NATO proposal into disarray by apparently suggesting a coup against President Trump and sparking up a feud with other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Al-Thani stated that while Qatar’s relationship with the United States remains fairly good, there are “tensions“, and he believes “the situation will change because of the judicial investigations into the President’s abuses.” The Emir’s surprising remarks strongly  suggest that Qatar believes Trump’s grip on power is tenuous and that there is a strong possibility he may be impeached or forced to resign.

Libertarian Maxime Bernier narrowly loses Canadian Conservative Party leadership election

Maxime Bernier, Quebec MP and former Foreign Minister, narrowly lost his bid for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada on Saturday to Saskatchewan MP and former House of Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer by just 49% to Scheer’s 51%. Scheer is a close ally of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was criticized by libertarians during his tenure for his support for Keynesian-style stimulus spending. The relatively bland and generic Scheer is generally associated with the party establishment, while Bernier was seen as an outsider candidate.

Coup at Heritage Foundation: Freedom Caucus-aligned DeMint to be ousted by establishment

Clinton’s views on gun rights are well known; she supports an “Assault Weapons” ban, opposes the Heller v D.C. decision, wants to repeal the immunity firearms manufacturers have when a criminal misuses their produts, wants to set up a federal registry of all handguns, and supports closing loopholes that don’t exist.
