Corsi: Trump About to Ax Mueller, Rosenstein, Sessions



President Donald Trump is on the verge of staging a major shake-up in Washington, including the ending of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race and whether the Trump campaign was involved. We're right now at the point where I think Donald Trump is getting ready to fire Mueller... I think it’s imminent.

I think he'll also fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as well.  I believe Trump plans to lay out the case to the nation that Mueller is a corrupt prosecutor - the kind of prosecutor who will violate laws. When President Trump brings this back to the American people, I think the American people will not object to Mueller being fired, and in his wake, his protector Rod Rosenstein, and Jeff Sessions.

NOTE: Corsi's latest Killing the Deep State has soared to the top of Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the New York Times bestseller lists. He argues his book offers "smoking gun" evidence high-ranking officials of the FBI and DOJ took steps in 2016 to insure Trump's ouster if he was elected. In his book, Corsi describes what he calls a secret conspiracy to destroy the Trump presidency and what Trump must do now to prevail.

California’s Economy Will Benefit from President Trump’s Trade Policies


By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

While California isn’t Trump country, Californians may find a curious silver lining in the president’s recent actions on trade, particularly with China. In part, that’s because the trade issue doesn’t cut cleanly down party lines. Most of California’s Democratic delegation is ostensibly with the president on trade - and they share his opposition to free trade agreements. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-New York] recently said that he supports President Trump’s trade policies more than he supported President Obama’s.

Trade matters because it profoundly impacts America’s manufacturing sector. California residents might be surprised to learn that their state is home to the nation’s largest manufacturing base, including a whopping 1.3 million manufacturing workers. These manufacturing jobs tend to pay good, middle-class wages - something that’s particularly important for Los Angeles, which is still the nation’s single largest manufacturing hub. [more...]

Kengor: John Kerry's Unauthorized Actions


John Kerry: Reporting for Duty... From Vietnam to Iran

He hasn’t changed a lick in 47 years.

I’ve been asked a number of times about John Kerry’s unauthorized actions with Iran compared to Ted Kennedy’s unauthorized actions with the Kremlin. Kerry, this spring 2018, sought to undermine President Trump’s policies, whereas Kennedy, spring 1983, sought to undermine President Reagan’s policies.

Many people - including the President of the United States - want to know if Kerry’s actions constitute a violation of the Logan Act. It’s a question I’m frequently asked about Kennedy. The short answer, in both cases, is that I’m not the source to provide the answer... Congress is. The Democratic Congress in the 1980s didn’t hesitate to launch criminal proceedings against President Ronald Reagan and his staff (many of them fine men of great integrity) in a militant pursuit for impeachment over “Iran-Contra.” Liberal Democrats did so while turning a blind eye as their leader - House Speaker Jim Wright - buddied up to Sandinista dictator Daniel Ortega in his own negotiations.

And Wright wasn’t secretary of state, just as John Kerry wasn’t secretary of state when he conferred with Iranian officials in secret meetings in New York. In what the Boston Globe described as a “rare move” of “unusual shadow diplomacy,” Kerry met with the Iranian foreign minister (among other high-level foreign officials) “to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.” That’s the very deal that President Trump was working to cancel just as Kerry was working to save it.

The Historic Opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem

In 1995, the United States Congress, on a bipartisan basis, passed the "Jerusalem Embassy Act," based on explicit findings written into the law. The opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem is a historic day for Israel, for the American-Israeli alliance, and for those who recognize that peace in the region requires -- as both Republicans and Democrats legislated two-and-a-half decades ago -- recognition of an undivided city, in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group should be protected, as they have been for the last 50 years by the State of Israel, after the city was reunited by Israel.

Why Obama’s Iran Deal Got Trumped

President Donald Trump’s decision to terminate President Barack Obama’s Iran deal, said Mr. Obama – a self-described globalist “citizen of the world” – “is a serious mistake.” Two former directors of Obama’s National Security Council committed an even larger ethical breach. Steven Simon and Jonathan Stevenson in a New York Times Op-Ed called on European nations to withdraw their diplomats from Washington, expel U.S. diplomats from their capitals, and respond to any U.S. sanctions for continuing to trade with Iran by imposing sanctions of their own against the United States.

Free-Trade Economists Begin to See the Light on Trade and Globalization

For decades, economists have taught David Ricardo’s Law of Comparative Advantage as if it is an absolute law.  But the tide is turning, as some highly respected economists are now moving away from the doctrinaire position that all free trade is always good everywhere, and they begin to acknowledge that free trade and large trade deficits have inflicted substantial harm on the U.S. economy. From the mid-1970s on, growing trade has also meant the growing loss of good-paying jobs to competitor nations. Around the year 2000, the process accelerated. Globalization entered a new phase, which Harvard economist Dani Rodrik has labeled “hyperglobalization.” Three significant effects launched hyperglobalization... [more...]


Disney-Owned ABC’s Disdain for Conservatives

In May of 2016, ABC executives made an inexplicable decision, one that from a business standpoint seemed totally incoherent. The Disney-owned network mysteriously cancelled its second-highest rated sitcom, which made no sense since the comedy had already received two prime time Emmy nominations and was on a solid upward trajectory. “Last Man Standing,” starring Tim Allen, was in its sixth successful season at the time of its cancellation, with an average of more than 8 million viewers for the 2016-17 season. One rational explanation for ABC’s exercise in poor judgment back in 2016 may be that the company has an inherent disdain, as many in Hollywood do, for the show’s conservative-leaning content.

In Progressive America, All Roads Lead to Single-Payer
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Senators Chris Murphy [D-Conn] and Jeff Merkley [D-Ore] recently introduced the "Choose Medicare Act," which would give every American the option to buy into Medicare. Their colleagues have already rolled out three other bills that would provide for a more limited Medicare buy-in, a Medicaid buy-in, and a full-fledged, government-run, single-payer system. All of these bills would lead to the same inevitable outcome -- a federal takeover of the nation's healthcare system. Each of the government-sponsored buy-in plans could operate at a loss indefinitely. Private insurers don't have that luxury; they'd ultimately go out of business. This, of course, is the progressives' goal. [more...]


5 Reasons Transgender Policies are Harmful

Who knew that removing the federal government from debates over school bathroom policies would be considered an assault on LGBT rights? That’s the argument activists made when the Department of Education announced that it would be enforcing Title IX the way the federal government always had - up until the second term of the Obama administration. That’s when the Obama Department of Education announced that the word “sex” now meant “gender identity” - and ordered schools to open up their bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, and dorms accordingly. In my book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, I write about the controversies surrounding these transgender policies. [more...]

The Historic Opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem


In 1995, the United States Congress, on a bipartisan basis, passed the "Jerusalem Embassy Act," based on explicit findings written into the law, in which the Congress found that:

(1) every nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own capital;
(2) Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s President, Parliament, and Supreme Court, and the spiritual center of Judaism;
(3) since 1967, it has been a united city administered by Israel, and persons of all religious faiths have been guaranteed full access to holy sites within the city; and
(4) Congress ‘‘strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected.”

The law provided that "Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999."

Every president since then has promised during his presidential campaign to implement that law, but until yesterday, it remained unimplemented. Yesterday -- 23 years after that law was enacted -- it became a reality.

It is a historic day for Israel, for the American-Israeli alliance, and for those who recognize that peace in the region requires -- as both Republicans and Democrats legislated two-and-a-half decades ago -- recognition of an undivided city, in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group should be protected, as they have been for the last 50 years by the State of Israel, after the city was reunited by Israel.

Iran is Using Syria as its Base of Terror Operation to Destabilize the Whole Middle East



Iran controls over 70,000 Iranians and non-Iranian minions in Syria and has over 250,000 fighters and operatives on its payroll. Its army includes about 10,000 Revolutionary guards, around 6,000 regular Iranian army, around 10,000 Hezbollah fighters from Lebanon and the rest are from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestinians and others.

Iran has spent approximately $100 billion on the Syrian war. The sanctions relief given to Iran as a result of Obama's "nuclear agreement" has given Iran a slush fund to invest $35 billion of our tax dollars in Syria on weapons and training and building a Command Center to control terror operations and weapons flow.

As a result of this slush fund, Hezbollah now has an estimated 155,000 rockets and missiles in Lebanon directed at Israel. One in four homes in southern Lebanon is a Hezbollah home with rocket launching room.

Iran has divided Syria into five sections and has over 13 military bases. Their command center is located near the Damascus airport because they believe the airport is the last to fall.

Iran wants to establish hegemony in the Middle East, and the Saudis, Egyptians and Jordanians know it. Their fear and concern about Iran is what drove them to work with Israel and America to stop Iran. Iran's role and work in Syria has led to ISIS and the refugee crisis across the middle east, Europe and the rest of the world.

CIA Nominee Gina Haspel Does Not Deserve to Be a Target in The Left's 'War on Women'



President Trump’s nominee for CIA director, Gina Haspel, is facing a confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, but despite her impeccable track record of success as an intelligence officer, she has been hit with an onslaught of attacks from the president’s political opponents.

Isn’t it ironic that those who complain so loudly about the so-called “war on women” are often the ones perpetuating it? If confirmed, Haspel would be the first woman to head the CIA, but Democrats, bitterly opposed to anything and everything President Trump does, are determined to sink her nomination – simply because she was nominated by this president.
