House Speaker Paul Ryan isn’t saying much these days – at least not in person to the voters of his own congressional district. The reason cited is fear of protesters, though, more than a few feel the most powerful member of Congress is simply ducking his unhappy constituency as he continues to play footsy with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as both men stall the Trump agenda in favor of protecting the remnants of Obama-era policies including Obamacare.
The Speaker’s office told media Mr. Ryan had just conducted a town-hall style meeting in Wisconsin. The problem? The public wasn’t allowed to attend. Yes, you read that right. It was a town hall without the town – a closed door stop at a factory where only invited guests were allowed in. If security was an issue given the recent shooting of Republicans by a crazed far left activist, then why not openly admit that as the reason? Call out the Democrats and the Mainstream Media for creating such a divisive and now dangerous political environment. Go to war against their litany of abuses.
Speaker Ryan seems to fear offending his Democrat and media cohorts, though. He won’t do that. Just as he won’t meet with the very people he is supposed to represent.
The French people must be so proud to see their childless 30-something president working so hard to stand next to POTUS Trump. Note as well how Trump towers over his world leader contemporaries. This is the most swagger the USA has shown at one of these meetings in quite some time…
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell might as well also call himself the Democrat Minority Leader too given his penchant for behind-the-scenes machinations to save much of what is a failed Obamacare boondoggle. McConnell’s reasons are quite simple – his desire to maintain power. He and other Establishment Republicans fear a media backlash should they move forward with a full repeal and replace of Obamacare. That fear is a sad and undeniable testament to just how cowardly self-serving the Republican Party leadership truly are.
This latest report from CNBC confirms the growing belief among many within the party that McConnell’s allegiance lies firmly with himself, his Establishment cohorts, and NOT the American people:
…A bill focused on buttressing the nation’s insurance marketplaces will be needed if the full fledged Republican effort to repeal much of President Barack Obama‘s health care law fails, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday. It was one of his most explicit acknowledgments that his party’s top-priority drive to erase much of Obama’s landmark 2010 statutes might fall short.
What McConnell is now signaling is an effort to actually SAVE much of Obamacare.
More than a few believe that has been his intention all along.
There is no difference between Democrat and Republican.
The only difference is that between those who wish to put American first and those who do not.
Poland, which remains among the most aggressive nations to take a stand against illegal immigration and the rising threat of Islamic terror throughout Europe, greeted Donald Trump with an enthusiastic chant that made clear their admiration for the current President of the United States.
A liberal Reddit activist posted this list of CNN advertisers – clearly wanting to punish the network for its decision to attack a private citizen over a meme:
Perhaps the incident is finally waking some up to the fact that where the Mainstream Media and Establishment politics are concerned there actually is no “conservative” or “liberal” but only power vs the powerless. Establishment forces have been playing one side against the other for decades while continually growing the power of government while taking power from the people.
Whether you agree or disagree with Donald Trump as President or Donald Trump as a person, he is at this moment the single greatest threat to the Establishment powers.
Her names was Monica Peterson, a Research Fellow and Assistant Director at the Human Trafficking Center in Colorado who traveled to Haiti to investigate ongoing allegations of rampant human trafficking – primarily of children.
While there she messaged colleagues the following:
I can’t say to what extent, but there is human trafficking happening through the Clinton’s Caraol Complex. And mining has always been historically linked to trafficking, slavery, and labor exploitation. I’d like to go see for myself who’s laboring at Morne Bossa, but I would hypothesize that the Dominicans are doing the contractual oversight of the mining, while marginalized Haitians are being exploited for low or no cost labor in dangerous mining conditions. That’s two huge human trafficking scandals, an environmental degradation scandal, a social displacement scandal, a Presidential election scandal, a scandal with billions in unaccounted for earthquake aid… all leading directly back to the Clintons racist cronyism in Haiti.
Monica Peterson was declared dead soon after.
Her death was brief blip upon the screen of the 2016 presidential campaign but ignored almost entirely by the Mainstream Media.

President Trump re-tweeted an amusing CNN-WWF parody video that had him pummeling the fake news network and the liberal media is now losing their minds over it claiming the president is “inciting violence.”
This is the same media that assisted in the cover-up of Obama-era scandals like Fast and Furious, the secret drone bombing program, the ISIS fiasco, dealings with Iran, the atrocities in Libya, Syria, and on and on and on. And let us not forget this was the same media that actively encouraged the violence in Ferguson, Baltimore, Dallas etc.
In all those examples, and a multitude more that would take far too long to list here, the Mainstream Media has been directly complicit in the deaths of tens of thousands. Children have been slaughtered. (Obama drones) Women mutilated, Christians slaughtered, innocents beheaded, homosexuals sentenced to death. (ISIS/Syria/Libya/Iran) American streets have been set ablaze, businesses destroyed, and law enforcement assassinated. (Ferguson/Baltimore, Dallas)
Just last week Republican members of Congress were shot at by a man who was a lifelong Democrat and activist who worked with the Bernie Sanders campaign. One of those Congressman, Steve Scalise, was nearly killed and has a long and difficult road to recovery. Witnesses indicated the shooter asked if there were Republicans on the baseball field before he opened fire. The Mainstream Media downplayed the man’s link to the Democrat Party, his leftist views, and the violence that resulted.
The media has been purposely lying about the Trump White House since day one. Two days ago we learned the “17 intelligence agencies” story about alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign was a hoax. The media has yet to report on that falsehood because to do so would be reporting on its own biased creation of “news.”
The entirety of the Russian narrative has been exposed in great part because Donald Trump refuses to run from the media attacks. He gets hit and he hits back – HARD. Another aspect to the false Russian collusion story is this – it is threatening the geopolitical environment of much of the world. The media clearly thinks lying about Mr. Trump is worth threatening the world.
Let that sink in.
Last week CNN was exposed for its fraudulent story about a Trump associate who, the network claimed before quickly retracting it once the individual threatened a lawsuit, was colluding with Russian officials. The story was made up. There was no such collusion. CNN backtracked only when faced with a potential $100 million lawsuit.
It is the Mainstream Media that is inciting violence in America. From its support of activist groups who openly declare they want to kill police, to colluding with a previous administration to keep the truth of widespread government abuses secret, to using international figures as pawns in their web of lies against a sitting president they cannot stand because he refuses to dance to their globalist tune.
CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC. NBC, CBS – they are all intent on destroying America’s first true political outsider to become president. Donald Trump is not a member of their exclusive club. He does not play by their rules. And most important – he does not fear them.
They would see him destroyed for that.
It is up to all of us to make certain that does not happen.
A dire warning of things to come. That was former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder’s 3:00 A.M. tweet that has since gone viral. It appears something big is brewing. Remember, this is the very same man who as Attorney General actually encouraged race riots in America…
To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned. Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.
If you haven’t had a good laugh yet today this should do it.
Watch as snowflakes brag about their “autonomous” gym that intends to develop “self defense skills” to be better prepared when they participate in protests in an “increasingly violent” political climate.
Mitch McConnell is a D.C. dinosaur and and an elitist member of the political establishment who has never been a supporter of the Trump presidency. When McConnell failed to cobble together enough senators to pass a much-needed healthcare reform bill, the Trump White House turned to South Dakota Senator John Thune, signaling to every other Republican in the Senate that it is Thune and not McConnell who has the President’s trust.
It is an interesting choice by the President given Thune was among the earliest and more vocal Senate opponents of Mr. Trump’s then-insurgent presidential campaign. Trump is a man who prizes results above all else, though, and it appears he believes Thune is the one to ensure the Senate finalizes passage of its healthcare reform bill.
Just this morning Senator Thune was pushing back against recent media reports that suggest President Trump has not been involved in the ongoing healthcare reform deliberations:
“The president has been very involved. He’s engaged with individual members that have specific concerns they want addressed. He’s engaged in our entire conference as you saw yesterday. He had all Republicans come down to the White House and convey to them the sense of urgency in getting something done, and rescuing the American people in what is a failed Obamacare system,” Mr. Thune, South Dakota Republican, said on Fox News.
As of now Thune and the Trump White House are pushing for a Friday vote. If that happens, the 55-year old Senator Thune’s standing within the Republican-controlled Senate will be strengthened considerably while 75-year-old Mitch McConnell will clearly be in the final years of his D.C. relevance.
The message from President Trump is clear. Either get things done or get out of the way.
It appears more and more in D.C. are finally getting the message.
Wow. This CNN crash and burn just managed to get even more brutal/laughable. Here is CNN’s Van Jones (a man who remains very-very close to Barack Obama and who some have alleged was/is a primary recipient of leaks via Obama-appointed government officials) admitting the Trump-Russia story was bogus – even as he’s saying on-air at CNN that it’s a serious story!
CNN’s reputation is rightfully in a shambles after it was fully exposed for its fake news propaganda machine that finally included a Trump supporter with deep pockets who wasn’t going to sit back and take it anymore.
When CNN went live with a report involving Anthony Scaramucci, a highly successful entrepreneur and friend of the Trump family, that alleged Scaramucci was involved in colluding with Russia for financial gain, Scaramucci came out swinging and immediately threatened a $100 million dollar defamation lawsuit against CNN.
Within hours, CNN executives fired the three reporters responsible for the story and issued a very swift and public retraction.
(ABOVE: Trump supporter Anthony Scaramucci)
The embarrassing episode comes at the very same time the $85 billion Time Warner/AT&T merger is being reviewed by the Trump Justice Department. Reports indicate ATT executives were furious over CNN’s news reporting abuses that are now endangering the merger. (As a candidate, President Trump indicated he had concerns about the merger.)
It should also be noted that Donald Trump is on very good terms with AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson and AT&T Entertainment Group CEO John Stankey – the two men who will oversee who stays and who goes at CNN should the merger be completed.
Check out this excerpt from a Truthfeed report out today:
“Everyone at the White House has been high-fiving each other over Anthony’s success in embarrassing CNN,” one attendee said.
“Trump is thoroughly enjoying this, and Anthony got endless slaps on the back at Steve’s wedding.”
CNN took on a bull and got the horns and if rumors now are correct, CNN president Jeff Zucker will be pushed out soon as well, in part because of his personal interest in pushing what has been a months-long and now proven utterly false, anti-Trump Russian narrative.
The Russian narrative has been an invention since day one. Undercover video that has now gone viral has made that all too clear. And while CNN was the one caught in this video, it represents ALL of the Mainstream Media. The New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, etc. – they have ALL been in on it and fed disinformation via the Deep State machine – much of which was put in place by the previous Obama administration.
Whether you support or don’t support President Trump, that choice should be based upon truth. So much of the anti-Trump narrative has been outright lies. Shame on all of them – and shame on those who support such an abuse.
Appallingly pathetic. For eight years Republicans promised voters they would dismantle Obamacare. They took in millions upon millions of political donation dollars on that promise. They ran on it. They were elected and re-elected on it.
And now some of them are breaking it.
Exhibit one of this two-faced politicking is Nevada Republican Senator Dean Heller who has now gone on record stating he will effectively stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Democrats to protect the failing Obamacare debacle.
Heller isn’t worried about helping Americans who need a failing healthcare system to be overhauled – a need made more urgent by the disaster that is Obamacare. No, all Senator Heller cares about is his re-election in 2018.
In 2010 and 2011 Heller told Nevada voters he was strongly opposed to Obamacare and any expansion of a federal healthcare system. Today he is stating he opposes any reduction of the federal healthcare system. Just another say one thing and do another (or do nothing) politician.
And he’s not alone. Susan Collins of Maine and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana have also indicated a desire to protect much of the current Obamacare disaster.
It is one thing to be a Republican senator stating opposition to the current Senate healthcare reform bill because you feel the bill does too little in scrapping the Obamacare mess. (Such as senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul) But to be a Republican senator who is now fighting to protect Obamacare?
That is disgusting.
Is it any wonder voters turned to Donald Trump, the most outside of outsider candidates in 2016 to try and fix the disgusting self-serving mess that is Washington D.C.?
Let’s hope Nevada voters send Mr. Heller a very strong message come November 2018 by voting him out. If he’s replaced by a Democrat does it really matter? He’s already standing with them as it is.
It appears increasingly clear that independent counsel Robert Mueller’s real job is to find something – ANYTHING – to bring down Donald Trump. With the fabricated Trump/Russia collusion story exposed as the fraud it always was, Mueller has veered off attempting to cobble together a potential “obstruction” charge against President Trump while simultaneously expanding the investigation the Trump family’s financial empire via an army of left-wing pro-DNC lawyers.
This is not an investigation. It is an attempted political coup to bypass the will of the American voter.
“…But it’s much bigger than that. A new set of numbers I found this week show Mueller’s wide-ranging, untethered investigation represents a broader coordinated effort by two staunchly anti-Trump factions: the Left and the fourth branch of government — in this case the entrenched bureaucrats working at the Department of Justice.
The first set of numbers is one that I have referenced before: $286,797, the overwhelming dollar amount that Department of Justice employees gave to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election and $8,756, the amount they gave to Donald Trump. This represents a 97 percent bias toward Clinton.
The second set of numbers is even more interesting. It represents the dollar amounts of campaign donations made by employees at WilmerHale, the law firm where Mueller served as a partner prior to being appointed special counsel and a firm from which he has already recruited several members of his investigative team. Employees of the firm gave an astounding $326,798 to the Clinton campaign in 2016, while giving a paltry $628 to the Trump campaign. For every $1 this group gave to Trump, it gave $520.37 to Clinton.
Consider the culture of these two institutions. How could any reasonable person say that a group of attorneys from either the Department of Justice or WilmerHale will be honest, objective truth-seekers, when it is clear that so many gave overwhelmingly to Hillary Clinton? No reasonable person could. This is a political hit squad, plain and simple.
…This is the most wide-open hunting license I’ve ever seen. And this will be dragged out by the investigators, the Left and their friends in the media for as long as the American people will put up with it. All the while, the manufactured drama around the investigation will slow the White House’s agenda by taking up its time and resources. Ultimately, this will be terrible for the country.”
Mr. Gingrich is absolutely correct. And remember, there are Establishment Republicans like John McCain who continue to push for Robert Mueller to be given even more power to investigate the Trump White House.
When Donald Trump ran for POTUS he took on the entire globalist establishment. That establishment now seeks to destroy him for his success. Not since the nation’s founding has a political figure risked so much.
Reince Priebus, the then-RNC Chair, was never a fan of Donald Trump’s insurgency presidential campaign. Priebus was allied with party Establishment figures like Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and John Kasich. And yet, despite that anti-Trump history, Donald Trump made Priebus his White House Chief of Staff so that Priebus could utilize his extensive party contacts and influence to move the Trump agenda forward.
That hasn’t happened and as a result Mr. Priebus is now poised to find himself standing outside the Trump White House looking in.
“He won’t last the summer.”
So goes the repeated mantra of several figures familiar with the Trump White House. It is a belief that was the foundation of today’s report by THE HILL regarding the same subject:
Priebus ‘most imperiled’ person at White House
“…The Post reports that Trump is dissatisfied with the chaos in the White House and wants someone with more governing experience to take over the top job. Sources told the Post that Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) have both been floated for the job.
One source told the Post that Priebus is “the most imperiled person here.”
The report claims that Priebus’s job security could rest on the passage of healthcare and tax reform. According to the Post, Priebus is heavily involved in the White House efforts to repeal ObamaCare and pass tax reform and could exit the White House early to save face if he feels he’s accomplished his goals.”
Trump’s reported dissatisfaction with Priebus comes in two parts. The first is the internal chaos within the Trump White House – namely leaks and alleged constant infighting. The second is how successful Congress has been in obstructing the Trump agenda – including by the very Republicans Priebus was supposed to gain the support of.
Rumors are also circulating that Mr. Priebus wants out but not before he succeeds in helping to get Congress to pass healthcare reform which in turn will lay the groundwork for sweeping tax reform to soon follow. If he can accomplish that his legacy will remain intact and he can exit the Trump White House with his head held high.
The question is if Donald Trump is willing to allow Priebus that long.
