  • 2020 Dems staff up: At least a dozen potential candidates are bolstering their teams [tr]

    The hiring stage of the 2020 shadow primary is underway. At least a dozen possible Democratic presidential candidates have begun bolstering their teams by adding aides with campaign experience to their Senate staffs, personal offices or 2018 reelection payrolls. The hires are never explicitly advertised or designed to be about 2020. But the behind-the-scenes shuffle is a long-overdue stage in the traditional precampaign scramble. Potential candidates who have run before — like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden — largely have their core teams in place.
  • Woman says arrests for animal sacrifices are 'a misunderstanding'

    SAN ANTONIO (WOAI) - Eleven people were arrested at a West Side home on animal cruelty charges. Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies say the animals were being sacrificed as part of a religious ritual. A woman on the scene would only tell WOAI it's a misunderstanding. She wouldn't elaborate on why sheriff's deputies entered to find the group slaughtering goats and birds and pouring their blood into containers. Sheriff's deputies responded to a report of animal cruelty on Bronze Sand Street Friday around 7 p.m. “They found inside goat’s heads, chickens ... and it was obvious they were performing some kind...
  • Congressman suggests Second Amendment as means of opposing Trump

    03/19/2018 5:08:18 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 16 replies
    A Democratic congressman from Long Island implied that Americans should grab weapons and oppose President Trump by force, if the commander-in-chief doesn’t follow the Constitution. Rep. Tom Suozzi made the remark to constituents at a town hall last week, saying that folks opposed to Trump might resort to the “Second Amendment.” “It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi said in a newly released video of the March 12 talk in Huntington. “This is where the Second Amendment comes in quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Democrats in Action, Part I – A Democrat who sits on the city council in Washington, DC, took to his Facebook account on Sunday to blame a sudden snowstorm on…wait for it…no, really, you have got to wait for this one…the JEWS! I swear I don’t make this stuff up. “It’s climate manipulation and D.C. keep talking about ‘we are a resilient city’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful,” said council member...
  • Walking in Wisdom (Protestant/Evangelical Caucus and Devotional)

    03/19/2018 5:00:22 AM PDT · by Gamecock · 1 replies
    “Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.” - Proverbs 28:26 In the book of Proverbs, we find many sayings that call us to become wise, and as they do so, they show us what characterizes the fool. Today’s passage features one of these statements, as it juxtaposes foolish self-reliance and walking in wisdom. Certainly, there can be a positive form of self-reliance, one in which we soberly take stock of our abilities and use them, refusing to become an unnecessary burden on anyone. Such self-reliance is in keeping with...

  • The Deep State's Love Affair With Andrew McCabe

    Recently fired former Deputy F.B.I Director Andrew McCabe has been drawing lots of support of late - from all the wrong places. Like a “We are the world” rendition sung by a hooded, hand-holding cabal of Satanists, ‘Deep State’ operatives, politicians, and media figures all united over the weekend to support the man who, since he WAS fired by the Trump administration after all, must surely merit the designation as the latest and greatest ‘chosen’ hero of the #Resistance.Nevermind the fact that McCabe was a partisan hack and a habitual leaker, this career government employee’s thinly veiled agenda to undermine...
  • Sessions makes his move

    03/19/2018 4:48:12 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 16 replies
    Sessions is the quintessential Eagle Scout. He will follow the rules down to the last subclause and will not make his move until every "t" has been crossed and every "i" dotted. We saw the first results of this approach last Friday – in dealing with Andrew McCabe, this century's prime example of a "cookie full of arsenic." Sessions waited until the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility (which is run by Assistant Director Candice Will, who was appointed by Robert Mueller, of all people) recommended that McCabe be fired. He then had McCabe officially informed beforehand, following established procedure to...

    This excerpted foreword by Howie Carr has been republished with permission from Chappaquiddick: Power, Privilege, and the Ted Kennedy Cover-up by the late Leo Damore (Regnery Publishing, 2018).If anyone ever truly deserved a Profiles in Courage Award, it was the late Leo Damore, the author of this book.Of course, the awards are handed out by the Kennedy family, and they are all about, not courage, but Political Correctness. But no one can dispute the fact that Damore put himself and his career on the line to write this book, and that one way or another, he paid the ultimate price—as a...
  • Jim Bridenstine's NASA nomination remains in serious jeopardy (payback for opposing Boehner!)

    U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine's nomination to lead NASA remains in serious jeopardy and his colleagues are suggesting President Donald Trump should soon nominate someone else. Bridenstine, a Tulsa Republican who was twice nominated to head the nation's space agency, has continued to draw the opposition of all Senate Democrats, independents and one Republican. A fellow Tulsa Republican, Sen. Jim Inhofe, has tried unsuccessfully to persuade that Republican senator to back Bridenstine. “I have talked to Marco — Senator Marco Rubio — and he doesn't like Jim Bridenstine,” Inhofe said of the junior senator from Florida. Florida's senators have effectively blocked...

The Son of God, when about to descend upon this earth to assume our human nature,...

  • Senators suspect Comey lied and plotted to double-cross Trump, seek second special counsel

    A plan of action for how a second special counsel can investigate the FBI and Justice Department is spelled out in a point-by-point letter submitted by two Republican senators. They specifically want to know whether former FBI Director James B. Comey lied to them and had a plan to double-cross President Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They and two other Republicans want a special counsel with the powers of the Trump-Russia probe’s Robert Mueller to investigate suspected Justice...

    As a teacher of public school (17 years), private school (7.5 years), and homeschool (11 years), I have a truly unique perspective on education. I’ve experienced k-12 education from just about every angle imaginable. ... In my quarter-century of teaching mathematics, there’s almost nothing in education that I can say all teachers, students, administrators, parents, and politicians agree upon, save this: we want our schools to be safe. One of the great tragedies of our time has been the wanton slaughter of helpless students, faculty, and staff in what could—and should—be one of the safest places in the world. Sadly,...

    A New Jersey high school came under fire Friday after it allegedly suspended two students over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a shooting range. News of the unnamed students' suspension circulated through a Lacey Township Facebook group, according to Amanda Buron, a Lacey resident and family friend of one of the suspended students said one of the photos shared on SnapChat featured four rifles, ammunition clips and a gun duffel with the caption "fun day at the range," reported. Buron said the two students received a five-day in-school suspension after the picture drew the...

    There are so many threads of information surrounding the 2016 operation to conduct political surveillance on the Trump campaign by various officials and offices within corrupt structures of government it’s easy to get lost. However, if we take all the various bits of information and place them together a less confusing picture emerges. The {Go Deep Threads} look like this: The FISA-702(17) ‘About Queries’; the political opposition research of Fusion-GPS and Glenn Simpson; the DOJ officials and FBI officials; Bruce and Nellie Ohr; the U.S. State Department and U.N Ambassador Samantha Power; the Clinton-Steele Dossier and Christopher Steele; the FISA...
