Information presently public and available confirms that Erik Prince, Rudy Giuliani, and Donald Trump conspired to intimidate FBI Director James Comey into interfering in, and thus directly affecting, the 2016 presidential election.

Trump Is Dragging Us Into Another War… And No One Is Talking About It

Quietly, while Americans have been focused on the ongoing drama over repealing the Affordable Care Act and the new revelations about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, President Trump has been busy dramatically expanding the American troop presence inside Syria. And virtually no one in Washington has noticed. Americans have a right to know what Trump is planning and whether this will lead to an Iraq-style occupation of Syria for years to come.

Steve Bannon Believes The Apocalypse Is Coming And War Is Inevitable

In Bannon’s view, we are in the midst of an existential war, and everything is a part of that conflict. Treaties must be torn up, enemies named, culture changed. Global conflagration, should it occur, would only prove the theory correct. For Bannon, the Fourth Turning has arrived. The Grey Champion, a messianic strongman figure, may have already emerged. The apocalypse is now.

Russian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton

If its proven that the Russians have interfered in US elections the courts can install Clinton as the president. This is due to a federal court ruling out of Pennsylvania that invalidated a state senate election due to fraud, ordering the winner be removed from office and the subsequent vacancy be filled by his opponent.

Democrats Deserve President Trump For Creating A Cult Following Around Hillary And Cheating Bernie

Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because of a cult following surrounding the former Secretary of State, created by sycophants, pundits, and journalists beholden to Clinton’s stature as an icon. This blind devotion overshadowed two FBI criminal investigations, Clinton’s use of the phrase “superpredators,” and Trump-level favorability ratings.

Fox News Just Landed A Brutal, Clean Hit On Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

In the beforetime, in the long, long ago of 2015, a woman named Hillary Clinton was about to launch her campaign for president. She was also trying really hard to secure $12 million for her family’s charitable foundation from King Mohammed VI of Morocco. And her campaign was freaking out about it.

Donald Trump’s Comments On Veteran Suicide Are Exactly Why There’s PTSD Stigma

Another day, another abhorrent comment about mental health from Donald Trump. This time the Republican presidential nominee targeted veteran’s mental health ― particularly those vets experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder. Veterans are not weak for having a mental health disorder. And it’s insulting to equate strength with not having a mental health issue after returning from combat.

Republican Obstruction Is Undermining The Supreme Court, Enough Is Enough

This week, the Supreme Court returns to work. The Justices will hear  important cases on issues ranging from the separation of church and  state to intellectual property to Congressional redistricting to the death penalty. Many of the cases address questions that are fundamental to our democracy: the right to vote, for instance, or what constitutes U.S. citizenship. Yet – regardless of the stakes – Republicans in Congress have forced the Court to weigh these pivotal issues one Justice short of the Court’s full panel of nine.

Washington’s Military Aid to Israel

We Americans have funny notions about foreign aid. Recent polls show that, on average, we believe 28% of the federal budget is eaten up by it, and that, in a time of austerity, this gigantic bite of the budget should be cut back to 10%. In actual fact, barely 1% of the federal budget goes to foreign aid of any kind. Overall, the United States covers nearly one quarter of Israel’s defense budget — from tear gas canisters to F-16 fighter jets. In their 2008-2009 assault on Gaza, the Israeli Defense Forces made use of M-92 and M-84 “dumb bombs,” Paveway II and JDAM guided “smart bombs,” AH-64 Apache attack helicopters equipped with AGM-114 Hellfire guided missiles, M141 “bunker defeat” munitions, and special weapons like M825A1 155mm white phosphorous munitions — all supplied as American foreign aid.
