Amid Soaring Asylum Requests, House Bill Would Give Amnesty to Venezuelan Illegals

A bipartisan bill introduced in the House of Representatives on Wednesday would give Venezuelan refugees and illegal immigrants a path to legal residency and eventual citizenship in the United States. The bill, called the Venezuelan Refugee Assistance Act, was introduced by Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) and Darren Soto (D-FL). The bill was cosponsored by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL). “For over a decade, thousands of Venezuelans were forced to flee the brutal Chavez dictatorship, and now, the situation has not improved under his hand-picked successor, Nicolas Maduro,” Curbelo said, citing the socialist government’s political violence. “This bill will allow Venezuelan nationals… Keep Reading

Sen. Mike Lee to Trump: Quit Funneling Taxpayer Money to George Soros!

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has been very vocal in his criticisms of President Trump, going back to the dysfunctional campaign season that put Trump at bitter odds with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Now, Lee is trying to warn Trump that taxpayer funds are being funneled directly into the pockets of his sworn enemies. “Whatever one’s views about abortion, energy regulation, alternative family structures, they are neither core international priorities of the American people, nor essential to American national security. They are domestic political controversies, pet causes of a sort of privileged, globalist elite,” Lee said in a speech at The… Keep Reading

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

Former Senator Jim DeMint is set to be imminently ousted from his position as President of the Heritage Foundation according to a new report by Politico.

Libertarian stalwart Ron Paul will broadcast an interview with Wikileaks’ Julian Assange today, following recent news of President Trump’s Department of Justice potentially pursuing criminal charges against the controversial whistleblower. “The CIA has been deeply humiliated as a result of our ongoing publications so this is a preemptive move by the CIA to try and discredit our publications and create a new category for Wikileaks and other national security reporters to strip them of First Amendment protections,” Assange said in a teaser clip from the interview that will air today at Noon on the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

Rep. Thomas Massie is ‘Excited’ About Trump’s Presidency, Sees ‘Great Opportunity’ Moving Forward

It has been a tumultuous start to Trump’s Presidency as the inexperienced outsider adjusts to life in Washington DC, but Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is impressed with what he has seen thus far. Massie thinks the 45th President is off to a great start mainly because of his choice of rule-of-law Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. “I’m excited for the wins that we got already, which includes Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch being confirmed and that’s going to last for decades,” Massie said to Breitbart News. “Neil Gorsuch was worth the entire election, everything else is a bonus.” Massie… Keep Reading

Several Trump administration officials are pushing a diplomatic deal that would give Saudi Arabia nuclear technology for civilian purposes, according to Mike Cernovich, the independent journalist who broke the stories about Susan Rice spying on Trump officials and H.R.

REPORT: Steve Bannon Didn’t Oppose Syria Strike; Maintains Distance from Right-Wing Media

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been called a right-wing firebrand, a tea party favorite, and even a white nationalist for his role in creating the Trump presidency. However, Bannon’s true nature is shaping up to be much different than the hype if recent reports are to be believed. In a New York Magazine article, journalist Olivia Nuzzi gave a glimpse to a different side of Bannon than what is usually portrayed by the media. She portrays Bannon as a man who has expended very little of his political capital to get nationalist allies into key White House positions,… Keep Reading

United Nations Appoints Islamic Dictatorship to Women’s Rights Commission

The United Nations (UN) is showing their commitment to the ongoing struggle for women’s rights throughout the world by including an Islamic dictatorship on their Commission on the Status of Women.

The UN had previously made the Saudi Arabian ambassador, Faisal bin Hassan Trad the head of a key human rights panel a couple years back. This outraged watchdog groups, but the UN was oblivious to those concerns and apparently considers Saudi Arabia to be a crucial vanguard for human rights for their organization.

Marco Rubio Accuses Pro-Trump Egyptian President Of ‘Abuse’ Of His People

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) had some sharp words for Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, sending a message to President Sisi saying: “if you continue to abuse your population, there will be government instability and that breeds radicals.” This echoes a frequent claim made by Senator Rubio in relation to Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria: that the existence of Syrian jihadists is directly linked to the regime’s dictatorial nature. Although the U.S. defense establishment has been split on the issue of Sisi’s regime, Rubio has emerged as a strong critic, previously panning it for human rights abuses. His… Keep Reading

President Trump is wavering on many key campaign promises, including his call to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that permits illegal immigrants who have been in America since they were children to stay in the country without prosecution. This is not acceptable for Rep.

Angela Davis: Still Bashing The U.S. And Israel

A quality lauded by today’s Left is for those of their ranks to never abandon their principles. The immediate riposte to this is that Hitler did also. And such adherence can violate the cardinal rule of being an intellectual: the ability to entertain the possibility that one might be wrong. An excellent example of leftists never engaging in second thoughts is Angela Davis, who despite claiming to be a former member of the American Communist Party and the Black Panthers, has retained her anti-Semitism and hatred of America. Invited to speak at George Washington University last month, Davis devoted the… Keep Reading
