Rand Paul Slams Afghanistan Troop Increase

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) slammed President Donald Trump’s decision to commit 4,000 more troops to Afghanistan in an op-ed for The Hill. “The mission in Afghanistan has lost its purpose, and I think it is a terrible idea to send any more troops into that war,” he wrote on Tuesday. “It’s time to come home now.” Keep Reading

Trump’s Threats Cause North Korea To Back Down, Reviving Hopes For Diplomacy

The possibility of a nuclear holocaust has been on everyone’s mind as Trump and Kim Jong-un exchanged threats and hostilities in recent weeks. However, both sides–while maintaining their aggressive posturing–are now indicating that they may back down if certain conditions are met. Jong-un recently claimed that missile strikes were not off the table as long as “Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity,” but he did caution America to “think reasonably and judge properly” moving forward. While these sentiments may not seem particularly warm, analysts explain that it is about the best… Keep Reading

President Trump Addresses Nation After “Unite The Right” Rally Descends Into Madness

In the wake of widespread riots and panic in Charlottesville, VA today, President Donald Trump addressed the American people to condemn violence and hatred from all political perspectives. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said at a press conference from his New Jersey golf club. “It has been going on for a long time in our country — not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.” The “Unite the Right”… Keep Reading

As Socialist Venezuela Crumbles, Their Military Dictator Grovels Beneath The U.S.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has been arrogantly thumbing his nose in the faces of Americans for years, but he is changing his tune after getting hit with economic sanctions. As he struggles to maintain power amidst the collapse of his socialist regime, he suddenly wants to talk to President Trump. “If he (Trump) is so interested in Venezuela, here I am,” Maduro said during a recent three-hour speech. “Mr Donald Trump, here is my hand.” Previously, the socialist despot had been an angry critic of the Trump administration. He even referred to Trump contemptuously as an emperor just last month… Keep Reading

The Military-Industrial Complex Salivates At Prospect Of War With North Korea

For the military-industrial complex, business is booming during the Trump administration. Trump’s deescalation of tensions in Syria is apparently an outlier, as Trump has continued or ramped up the militaristic policies of his predecessor on every other front–most notably, North Korea. These policies have defense giants such as Lockheed Martin swimming in profits. “The level of dialogue around missile defense is now at the prime minister and minister of defense level,” Tim Cahill, who serves as vice president of Lockheed’s Air and Missile Defense division, said to Reuters during an interview. Trump’s declaration that North Korea would be “met with… Keep Reading

Alabama Senate Candidate Vows To “Stand With Rand” As Race Heats Up During Final Stretch

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has climbed to the top of the polls recently, but that has not caused him to lose sight of his principles. He sent out an e-mail this weekend that proclaimed he would “stand with Rand” on all the key issues if he wins the U.S. Senate seat that he is vying for. “I’ll stand with Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz on the frontlines of the fight against the Washington Establishment,” Moore assured his supporters in an e-mail released this weekend promoting a “money bomb” to defeat the political establishment.

A Neocon Unhinged: Crazed McMaster Threatens Aggressive War Against North Korea

When President Donald Trump pledged to drain the swamp on the campaign trail last year, his supporters certainly figured that this meant no swamp rats would be included in his administration. Of course, they would inevitably be disappointed. Many members of the reviled political establishment found their way into the Trump administration, none of them more odious than National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. McMaster replaced Michael Flynn in his role, who was ousted for omitting information to Vice President Mike Pence. Flynn bucked the Washington D.C. foreign policy consensus in key ways, but his successor, McMaster is a fierce proponent… Keep Reading

Trump Clashes With Pelosi Over “Clearly Unconstitutional” Russian Sanctions

Congress is dead set against making America great again, and they prove it time after time. Most recently, they overwhelmingly passed a bill to place sanctions on Russia and hamstring the President into complying with them against his better judgment. Although Trump signed the bill into law, he expressed his dismay through a signing statement. “While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in the statement. “In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions.”… Keep Reading

Acclaimed Journalist Dishes Dirt On Trump And The Deep State In Profane Rant

Acclaimed journalist Seymour Hersh, once a leftist favorite for his coverage of the Vietnam War, became a pariah of the liberal media during the Obama presidency for actually holding the chosen one accountable. In the age of Trump, Hersh is exposing deep state subversion and is not afraid to dish the uncensored dirt on prominent government officials. “You know the trouble with all of those guys is that the only way they’re going to make it to a [corporate] board or two… and get some fat cat contracts is if Hillary stayed in.

Too Much Winning: Scaramucci’s Flame Out Shows The Limits Of Trumpism

To those who enjoyed the Scaramucci show and are sad that it has come to an end, please consider the old adage: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Anthony Scaramucci came into the Trump administration like a knight in shining armor. Besieged with constant infiltration, leaks and seemingly unprecedented turmoil throughout his first six months, President Trump needed a man to come in like gang busters and take care of business. Replacing Sean Spicer, Scaramucci came in as White House communications director guns a-blazin’ with a style so brash and confrontational that it may have… Keep Reading

Trump Administration Mulls Afghanistan Drawback After Prior Indications Of Expansion

President Donald Trump’s foreign policy may not always be coherent, but it is proving to be less belligerent than that of his predecessors. After previously indicating that troop totals would likely be expanding in Afghanistan, the Trump administration is considering reversing that policy after the Pentagon failed to rally much support behind their initial proposal. “It’s a macro question as to whether the U.S., this administration, and this president are committed to staying,” a senior Trump administration official said to the Wall Street Journal. “It doesn’t work unless we are there for a long time, and if we don’t have… Keep Reading

Paul’s Gamble Pays Off As Neocons Collude With Democrats To Kill Obamacare Repeal

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has played a very nuanced game regarding health care negotiations. After positioning himself for months as the leading hard-liner for Obamacare repeal, Paul eventually conceded to allow debate and voted affirmatively on a lackluster bare-bones repeal that failed this morning. His manuevering ultimately paid off, as neoconservatives were ultimately for stopping any kind of Obamacare repeal from taking place. It was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a frequent foil of Paul and his father, who ultimately cast the deciding vote against Obamacare repeal. He was joined by Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) as the… Keep Reading

Rand Paul Gets Roll Call Vote On Failed Health Care Amendment, But Will His Gamble Pay Off?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was undecided about whether to vote to move forward debate on repealing and replacing Obamacare in the Senate until the last minute. Before the vote, he hopped off the fence to join Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in proceeding debate after receiving assurances that his amendment for a clean repeal would receive a vote. McConnell actually lived up to his word, and Paul got his wish. A vote for the amendment to repeal Obamacare was taken yesterday, and it was voted down by a 45-55 margin. Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan… Keep Reading

The Rise Of Trump From An “Elite” Perspective

As we are well into the first year of the Trump administration, and leftists are still walking around in a dim haze of incredulity, I’d like to reflect a little on why the man was elected. As some of you have probably inferred from the title, I am (on paper) a “coastal elitist.” I was born and raised in New Jersey, I am college educated (holding both two undergraduate degrees and a graduate degree), and being that I read, exercise, and listen to classical music, I suppose my tastes run to the fairly “highbrow.” In practice, some of my other… Keep Reading

On Russia Sanctions, Only Three Republican Legislators Stand Courageously With Trump

When President Donald Trump complained recently about how few prominent Republicans had his back, he was not kidding. A recent House vote to tie up the President, undermine his foreign policy, and partially remove his discretion pertaining to Russia passed with only three GOP legislators objecting. Reps. Jimmy Duncan (R-TN), Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Justin Amash (R-MI) were the three lone “no” votes against a successful measure limiting Trump’s ability to remove sanctions on Russia that were approved by Congress. This maneuver may harm Trump’s ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia, and further jeopardize tenuous relations with the nation. Hiding… Keep Reading

Trump Puts America First, Bans Transgender Individuals From Military Service

President Donald Trump has constantly shown that he will put American national security before political correctness. This is evident in his latest announcement that transgender individuals will be banned from military service, a stark departure from the military policy crafted by his predecessor. “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow…transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” Trump announced this morning on his Twitter account. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs… Keep Reading

Former CIA Official Under Obama Implies Possible Need For Coup Against Trump

Before Congressional exposure and curtailment of CIA operations into the domestic affairs of foreign countries, in the form of the Church Committee hearings in 1975, the Agency in the Eisenhower and Kennedy eras specialized in engineering and/or directing coups that toppled Soviet-friendly governments. With a mere radio station, the CIA was able to topple Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala, and with directed and trained troops rid the country of Muhammad Mossadegh in Iran; both of these figures were seeking or had established relations with the Soviet Union. With a few cables, the Kennedy administration green-lit a coup of Vietnamese military officials… Keep Reading

U.S. Remains Silent After Iran And Iraq Sign Agreement To Strengthen Military Alliance

The Defense Ministers of Iraq and Iran have united to sign a pact to fight in a joint effort against “terrorism and extremism,” and the Trump administration–a hostile critic of the Iranian regime–is silent thus far.

As Hillary Remains Free, Attorney General Jeff Sessions Focuses On Failed Drug War

When Donald Trump was campaigning for President last year, thousands of Americans chanted “LOCK HER UP!” throughout the country referring to his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Once elected, Trump supporters expected Attorney General Jeff Sessions to follow the campaign’s mandate and proceed to investigate Clinton for her e-mails, Libyan war crimes, and other atrocities she has committed over the years. Instead of fulfilling the Trump mandate, Sessions has gone rogue. He is pursuing his decades-long fetish of marijuana prohibition and working feverishly with the intent of doubling-down on possibly the most destructive policy in modern American history: the federal drug war.… Keep Reading

Top Pentagon General: North Korean Military Lacks Capability To Strike The United States

While North Korea–led by the childish and deranged dictator Kim Jong-un–clearly wants to be taken seriously on the global stage as a world power, the United States military is not buying it. They see North Korea as little more than a paper tiger, and do not believe that the nation has the ability to accurately hit the United States with missiles. Pyongyang’s state-controlled media organs reported that North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile tests conducted on July 4 were successful, and demonstrated to the world that the small nation actually has the capability to attack the United States. However, General Paul… Keep Reading

GOP Health Care Reform Means The Likely Demise Of Obamacare’s “Death Panel”

Over the past several months, the mainstream media and Washington elite have perpetuated conspiracy theories and demonstrably false narratives in an effort to distract and stymie the current administration from reforming America’s health care–and the claims are growing ever more outlandish. In one article, CNN teeth-clinchingly claimed that under the bill formerly known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA), rape and domestic violence could qualify as pre-existing conditions. In another, Salon asserted that women who undergo C-sections could be “monetarily punished” under the bill. Despite this propaganda campaign, President Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress are working hard behind the… Keep Reading

Virginia Woman Gives Voice For North Korean Refugees To Speak Out Against Tyranny

Make Cities Great Again: How And Why Conservatives Should Embrace The Metropolis, Not Abandon It

In the wake of Donald Trump’s win, you might have noticed a new swamp spring up–one that Trump certainly wouldn’t want to drain. You were likely swamped with the same meme ad nauseum, comparing maps of “Trump’s America” and “Hillary’s America.” The meme-making quality: Trump’s America is far larger than Hillary’s precisely because it consists of those counties in which he won the majority of the vote, namely, rural areas. In contrast, Hillary Clinton won mostly the coastal US, especially the country’s largest cities, by wide margins. We can laugh at the radical different geographic spreads of each tally, but… Keep Reading
