    The Nuclear Option — The John Brennan Farce: Anti-American Lying Coward Media’s Go-to Trump Critic

    Well, that certainly was not The Art of the Deal. And that was not the tough guy from Queens we so enthusiastically elected. President Trump is the most courageous, imaginative, and dynamic American political leader in more than a quarter-century. He is willing to tackle huge problems and fiercely pursue bold and inventive courses in search of solutions to problems that cowardly politicians have ignored for decades. None of that was on display Monday in Helsinki. Mr. Trump was defensive, short-sighted and small-minded in answering reporters’ questions. He equivocated between Russian President Vladimir Putin and American intelligence officials on whether ...

    Donald Trump: Putin Knows I’ve Been Tough on Russia; Media Do Not

    President Donald Trump dismissed questions about his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, assuring the media he remains tough in dealings with Russia. “There’s been no president ever as tough as I have been as tough on Russia,” Trump claimed while speaking to reporters during a meeting with his Cabinet officials at the White House.

    Dems Unhinged over Trump/Putin Summit: ‘Stand up for This Country and Impeach This President’

    Democrats calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached is not new as Reps. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Al Green (D-TX) have regularly championed the cause. But following Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday the campaign to undo a presidential election is reaching fever pitch. Green, who introduced Articles of Impeachment in the House last year (the resolution was quickly tabled) took to that chamber’s floor on Tuesday to again call for Trump’s impeachment and then posted a video of his remarks on Twitter. “When a President puts democracy at risk and endangers the Republic, there is but ...

    San Francisco Opens Non-Citizen Voting in School Board Elections

    San Francisco’s Department of Elections has begun registering non-U.S. citizens to vote in the city’s school board elections. As Bay Area public radio station KQED reported, San Francisco voters passed Proposition N in 2016, giving non-citizens the ability to vote in some local elections. Similar measures had failed on two previous attempts. Non-citizen voting in school board elections has also been approved in Chicago, Illinois, and Cambridge, Massachusets, according to CBS San Francisco. Foreign citizens looking to vote in the upcoming October 22 San Francisco Board of Education election must meet eligibility requirements as laid out by the city’s Department of ...

    Ellison: Not Allowing People to Cross Border Freely Creates ‘Injustice’

    During an interview with the editor-in-chief of Tikkun Magazine, Rabbi Michael Lerner‏, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said it was an “injustice” that corporations are allowed to cross border seeking low wage workers but workers are not allowed to cross the border seeking higher wages. Ellison said, “An undocumented worker is an exploited worker. We just have to say the 12 million undocumented people in the United States are here because somebody wants them to be. They want them to do the work but they don’t want them to have any rights, they don’t want to pay them fairly, they don’t ...

    DHS Official: Deported Parents Decided to Leave 100-Plus Children Behind

    More than 100 deported migrant parents have separated themselves from their children and left them behind in the United States, according to Kevin McAleenan, head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “So we’ve seen many [deported] parents — apparently over a hundred already — say that they’d rather have their child stay here,” McAleenan told Politico’s interviewer, Luiza Chwialkowska Savage. “They might have a family member who that child can be placed with in the U.S., but that is the parent’s decision,” he said July 17. The growing number of self-imposed separations comes as progressives and judges continue their emotional protests against the federal effort to shelter children ...

    European Competition Commission Hits Google With $5 Billion Fine

    AFP — Google faced a record EU anti-trust fine of 4.3 billion euros on Wednesday over its Android smartphone system, in a ruling that risks a fresh clash between Brussels and Washington. EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager is expected to say that the US tech giant abused Android’s dominant market position to boost usage of its own search engine and browser. The new sanction would nearly double the previous record EU anti-trust fine of 2.4 billion euros, which also targeted Google, in that case for the Silicon Valley titan’s shopping comparison service in 2017. The decision, which follows a three-year ...

    Donald Trump: ‘Haters’ Infected with ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’

    President Donald Trump turned to Twitter Wednesday to slam critics of his meeting and press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday. “So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

    Nolte: Helsinki Is One of Trump’s Finest Moments

    President Donald Trump proved to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that he is nobody’s puppet — not Putin’s, not the Deep State’s, and not the establishment media’s. Like the moral strength he showed in Charlottesville, VA, last year, Helsinki should be remembered as one of Trump’s finest moments. Last August, some truly evil people showed up in Charlottesville. On one side, you had white supremacists, and on the other, you had the left-wing terrorist group Antifa. A riot broke out, one person was murdered, and another 30-plus others were injured. Almost immediately, the media crafted a narrative around Charlottesville that determined ...

    First Win for Trump-Putin Summit: Agreement to Restrain Iran in Syria

    President Donald Trump has been criticized by the media and by Beltway politicians of both parties for his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. But the summit has already produced a very significant win: namely, agreement to avoid a war in the Middle East by restraining Iran in Syria. As Breitbart News columnist Caroline Glick noted last month, it was crucial that Trump confront Putin over Syria, because Russia  was about to allow Iranian and Hezbollah soldiers, dressed in Syrian uniforms, to move into southwestern Syria along the border with Israel and Jordan. That was not ...

    Four States Sue D.C. Over Federal Tax Deduction Cap

    Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York are fighting the $10,000 federal deduction cap instituted under Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax overhaul. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said: “The federal government is hell-bent on using New York as a piggy bank to pay for corporate tax cuts and I will not stand for it.” The lawsuit alleges that the new cap on deductions “exert[s] a power akin to undue influence” over state tax laws. With an average deduction of $22,000, New Yorkers will end up paying about $14 billion more in taxes in 2018 alone. Cuomo’s concerns, and those of the other states, ...
