EXCLUSIVE: The Cigar-Pussyhat Project Tops Off Massive Anti-Clinton Women's March in Washington

CNN alerts us to the critical news that the "Pussyhat Project tops off Women's March on Washington". I'm thankful that Democrats are finally protesting Bill Clinton's serial abuse of females, including youthful employees.


Seriously, folks: what kind of man abuses an intern with a cigar? And, more importantly, what kind of twisted political ideology ignores actual sexual abuse, conflating it with an off-the-record audio recording of someone bragging about sexual exploits?

And that's how you got President Trump, leftists.
 

COMMON SENSE, 2017: Part II

By Jim Quinn

In Part One of this article I explored Thomas Paine’s critical role in the creation of our nation. His Common Sense pamphlets inspired the common people to uncommon acts of courage and heroic feats of valor; leading to the great experiment we call the United States of America. Paine, Franklin and the other Founding Fathers produced a republic, if we could keep it.

John Adams championed the new Constitution precisely because it would not create a democracy, as he knew a democracy “soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself.” Their herculean efforts, sacrifices, and bloodshed have been for naught as we allowed our republic to devolve into a democracy and ultimately into our current corporate fascist warfare/welfare surveillance state. Sadly, we were unable to keep the republic Franklin and his fellow revolutionaries gave us.

LET THE HEAD CRACKINGS BEGIN: DHS Whistleblower Ready To ‘Drain The Swamp’ With Trump

By Ginni Thomas

A road-worn, devoted Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower and author is uniquely positioned to help President Donald Trump do the forensics on what is on the bottom of the swamp.

Since Phil Haney’s book, “See Something Say Nothing,” came out, he saw, felt and witnessed the rising up of Americans who coalesced at the ballot box to turn this country away from willful blindness, excessively loose immigration policies and failed counter-terrorism policies in the name of civil rights. Haney says, “people knew intuitively that something wasn’t right” in our government’s policies to keep Americans safe.

“I know where the valves are and people like me do,” the soft-spoken Haney — who traveled to 90 cities starting in Indianapolis, Ind. in April to Omaha, Neb. on Nov. 7, speaking to millions of worried Americans — says in this exclusive video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation.

BOOM: POTUS Signs Executive Order That Could Gut Obamacare's Indivdiual Mandate

By William Teach

One of Mr. Trump’s first acts as President was to sign an order on Obamacare:

(The Hill) President Trump on Friday signed an executive order directing federal agencies to “ease the burden of ObamaCare.”

The order did not direct any specific actions, instead giving broad authority to the Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies to take actions available to them under the law to ease regulatory requirements from ObamaCare.

It pushes agencies to target provisions that impose a “fiscal burden” on a state or a “cost” or “regulatory burden” on individuals or businesses.

It is not clear what practical effects will come from the order.

But, they can guess:

QOTD: "Donald Trump’s inaugural address was historic. Not because it was good, although it was very good indeed. But because it didn’t give an inch. Trump’s message to the world was: if you thought I wasn’t serious; if you thought I might go native; if you thought the weight of responsibility might force me to accept the conventional wisdom; forget it. I meant every word I’ve been saying for the last two years.

There were very few fancy turns of phrase, and those felt slightly false. For the most part, Trump’s sentences were like sledgehammers. He appealed strongly for unity among the American people, but he didn’t back off from his critique of the Washington establishment, most of which was assembled before him. Washington has enriched itself at the expense of the American people, Trump said, but that will end." --John Hinderaker
