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.

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. [more...]


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.

O’Reilly: The Left Hates this Pro-Trump Book



Bill O’Reilly says Killing the Deep State is “a book that the left doesn’t like.” He’s right. In fact, the left, and their allies in the big media hate Jerome Corsi’s sensational new book. So much so, they have placed a virtual ban on Corsi across all the major networks -- CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC . . .  and even Fox News. But Bill O’Reilly is not afraid and recently featured Corsi on his popular BillOReilly.com podcast. Holding the book up for viewers, O’Reilly declared: “There’s a new book out -- and it’s an homage to me -- called Killing the Deep State by Dr. Jerome Corsi,” referring to his own hugely successful series of “Killing” books. Despite the media blackout, Corsi’s book has soared to the top of the bestseller lists making the No. 1 spot on Amazon and hitting the coveted New York Times list for weeks. [more...]

The Second and Third Israeli Miracles

Much of the commentary on the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding has focused on the miraculous re-creation of the Jewish state after 1,878 years, on the same land where Jewish kingdoms had existed for centuries, with Jews speaking the same language in 1948 that they spoke in the first century, when the Romans exiled them from their land. But there was another miracle in 1948. David Ben-Gurion described it in an essay he wrote in 1954, when Israel was six years old, titled “The Eternity of Israel.” The second miracle, Ben-Gurion wrote, was the extraordinary Jewish unity on May 14, 1948.

Pres. Trump Ends Obama’s Iran Hostage Crisis

Trump Crushed Every Lie About the Iran Deal

Jimmy Carter began the first Iranian hostage crisis and Reagan ended it. Obama began America’s second Iranian hostage crisis... President Trump just ended it. On January 12, 2016, Iran's IRGC terror force seized 2 U.S. Navy vessels, extracted classified information from their crews at gunpoint, broadcast images of American sailors on their knees and forced an officer to read an apology. A day later, the Islamic terror state released its American hostages. Three days later, Implementation Day lifted sanctions on Iran. By the next month, Iran was claiming that it had received over $100 billion in sanctions relief. It was not the last ransom payment linked to the nuclear deal. [more...]


2018 Great for Mergers & Acquisitions

2018 has been a great year thus far for M&A. The number of deals is down, but the deal sizes are increasing. Record-breaking deals are being proposed and executed both in the United States and globally. Just in the last week, Sprint and T-Mobile announced a $26 billion merger, and Marathon Petroleum announced a $36 billion acquisition. Other potential deals include Walmart and J Sainsbury, Walmart (or Amazon) and Flipkart, and Bayer and Monsanto. To provide a better idea, as of mid-last week, there have been 11,828 deals valued at $1.71 trillion globally. Deals are valued to be 63% larger on average than last year. [more...]


Cultural Workers Unite! Today’s Marxist Revolution

Karl Marx’s vision may have ended in political and economic failure, but even he couldn't have anticipated his ongoing and perhaps ultimate triumph on the cultural front.

Last Saturday marked the bicentennial of Karl Marx’ birth, a cause for literal celebration in various quarters of the academy.  It’s often charged among the political right that America is going communist, or at least socialist, or toward some form of Marxism. My concern is less classical Marxism than cultural Marxism, a strain of communist thought that even most of those engaging in it aren’t consciously aware of. If you Google “cultural Marxism,” the first thing that pops up is a Wikipedia definition dismissing it as a “conspiracy theory which sees the Frankfurt School as part of an ongoing movement to take over and destroy Western culture.” [more...]


Trump’s Truths

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we examine how Donald Trump directs, runs and dictates every single statement made by his staff and government. This President personally crafts all messages delivered on television by his people - so when Rudy Giuliani speaks, he is reading from a script written by Donald Trump. Those who refuse to do so are summarily removed from office or from his legal team. "Loyalty" in his mind is a pre-agreement to do Trump's bidding - and to offer no disagreement. The question: how long can this last before the truth catches up with Trump? [more...]

Trump’s Tariffs Could Put Money in the Pockets of America’s Farmers
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

Fears of retaliation by China are greatly exaggerated, and the potential gains far outweigh the possible downsides

President Donald Trump’s recently implemented trade strategy - including tariffs on subsidized imports from China - is drawing fire from multinational agribusinesses and their trade associations. They favor a borderless world, and they support the free trade agreements of the past 20 years. Family farmers and ranchers, however, have a different view. They no longer believe current free trade agreements will benefit them. Net farm income this year is projected to be the lowest since 2006. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) transformed America’s agricultural trade surplus with Mexico and Canada into a deficit. [more...]


The “Fundamental Transformation” of Both Parties

Hillary Clinton’s latest excuse for losing the 2016 election is that she is a “capitalist” but “41 percent of Democrats are socialists...” Hillary Clinton is a “capitalist” as Marx used the term. She favors crony capitalism in which privileged elitists get rich via government favors. She rules a billion-dollar foundation that demanded kickbacks from those seeking favors from the Secretary of State... favors like a Russian company acquiring 20% of America’s precious uranium reserves while her foundation pocketed from Russian interests at least $145 million. Most of the Republican Party, meanwhile, thanks to President Trump, is moving away from the globalist, collectivist agenda of Progressivism that has ruled both parties since World War II. Mr. Trump is restoring both nationalism and America’s borders. He is returning America to its historic role as an experiment in liberty that unites enterprising, liberty-seeking citizens from around the world in the first “new nation,” a great model of free enterprise for Planet Earth to follow. [more...]


John Kerry’s Contemptible Collusion

Former Secretary of State John Kerry has been colluding with the enemy, back-channeling with leaders of a totalitarian regime that fosters terrorism, and working against the national security interests of the United States. Kerry has committed a textbook violation of the Logan Act, a 1799 law that has never resulted in a conviction. The law is violated when a private citizen negotiates without authorization on behalf of the United States in disputes with foreign governments. The rationale behind the law seeks to prevent an individual with international contacts from thwarting the policy of the nation. This is exactly what Kerry has been attempting. Why bring up a law from centuries past? [more...]


The Doctor Shortage: Fact or Fiction?

In a recent study, The Association of American Medical Colleges has projected that there will be a doctor shortage between 42,000 and 120,300 by 2030. This is a stunning number when you break down the fact that the shortage will affect primary care doctors (14,800 – 49,300); specialists (33,800 – 72,700); and surgical sub specialists (20,700 – 30,500). The looming crisis is magnified by the fact that increasing demand from both a growing and an aging population must be considered. How did we get to this point? Perhaps it is because Congress passed The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 which limited the number of residency positions in the US. Because of this, there are doctors who graduate from medical school each year who cannot be licensed to practice medicine because they cannot find a residency. Physicians must complete at least one year of residency to be eligible to practice medicine. Instead of taking care of patients in underserved communities, these doctors are unnecessarily sidelined. [more...]


Marx’s Apologists Should Be Red in the Face

The bicentennial of the man whose ideas killed untold millions

May 5th marked the bicentennial of Karl Marx, who set the stage with his philosophy for the greatest ideological massacres in history. Or did he? He did, but deniers still remain. “Only a fool could hold Marx responsible for the Gulag,” writes Francis Wheen in “Karl Marx: A Life”. Stalin, Mao and Kim Il Sung, Mr. Wheen insists, created “bastard creeds,” “wrenched out of context” from Marx’s writings. Marx has been accused of ambiguity in his writings. That critique is often justified, but not always. In “The Communist Manifesto,” he and Friedrich Engels were quite clear that “the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: abolition of private property.” [more...]


Why There Can Never Be Another Rush Limbaugh

If you’ve looked at talk radio scene recently, you have probably noticed there’s a certain stagnation or entropy that’s set in. It’s been years since a major talent exploded upon the scene, garnering millions of listeners and fans. The conclusion to be drawn: Due to numerous changes, demographic, technological, financial, economic and political, terrestrial based talk show hosts are rapidly becoming an endangered species. That’s not to say that Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Levin and others are at risk losing their relevance, but rather it’s an observation that the new talent pipeline won’t be providing their successors anytime soon.

Removing Mueller



I think it's the beginning of the end for Robert Mueller (I think of him as a dirty, crooked prosecutor). President Trump is facing this continued investigation and it’s clear that Mueller is out to get Trump; his whole investigation is an attempt to impeach the president. It’s a very dangerous situation. In the DOJ, there were a lot of people who were fired; though Peter Strzok, the prime mover, was not fired.  As I point out in Killing the Deep State, it's shocking, but the real crime was that there was a coup d'etat planned - the so-called “insurance policy” they needed. 

The coup d’etat, the treason, started in the FBI.  AG Rod Rosenstein is basically Strzok’s protector; Strzok may be saying, “I know a lot; I’ll tell everybody everything unless you protect me.  I want to keep my job.  I don’t want to be fired.”  Devon Nunes, at the House Intelligence Committee, is complaining about Rosenstein; in fact, there has been a motion being written up by several of the House members to impeach Rosenstein.

Rod Rosenstein is the Deputy AG under Jeff Sessions and is a long-term Democratic operative; he goes back to even a position in the IRS.  He’s had a long history of protecting the Democrats.  He’s like all the others: Mueller, Comey - they’ve been moved in and out of board positions, in and out of private law firms.  Comey’s got an $18 million net worth - I want to know where that came from.

As we see the setup right now, they’ve got Mueller who is trying to impeach Trump; Rosenstein, who is refusing to hand over to Congress all these million pages, which would make it clear that the DOJ and the FBI were protecting Hillary Clinton.  They were making sure there would be no indictments against Hillary during the campaign; and they concocted this plan to make up the Russian collusion narrative and use that as the basis for getting the FISA court wire-tapping approval.  From that, they intended ultimately to impeach Donald Trump if he should win.  These people are still in place: Mueller, Rosenstein, Sessions...  [more...] [Part II]

NOTE: Corsi's latest Killing the Deep State has soared to the top of Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the 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.

Extending Exemptions on 232 Tariffs
By Michael Stumo, CEO of the Coalition for a Prosperous America

We strongly encourage the Trump Administration to fully implement crucial Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs rather than extend exemptions for certain countries. We support the Commerce Department determination that surging imports of subsidized steel and aluminum “threaten to impair the national security” of the United States. Extending the exemptions for several countries has spurred price volatility and a flood of imports from foreign producers dumping product as soon as possible before the tariffs become effective. Broad and comprehensive implementation is needed to provide certainty and to meet the goals described by the administration. [more...]


Comey Believes President Hillary Wouldn’t Have Fired Him

Aside from everything else, Comey may have been the single dumbest man to hold the Hoover chair. Axios’ Mike Allen spoke with the former FBI Director and asked him directly if the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate should’ve been charged with a crime. Comey said, “No.” Though if you ask him next Wednesday, that answer may change. Allen asked Comey if he wishes Clinton won. Comey thought for a second and said, “That’s not one I’m gonna answer, I don’t think.” That's an answer... also a double negative. [more...]


Top 10 Cases of Chinese IP Theft

Industrial espionage has been going on for centuries, but experts agree China’s espionage campaign is on a different scale from anything we’ve seen in history. It has been going on at least since the 1990s and there is no sign it is letting up. Targets include an incredibly broad range of U.S. companies, embracing civilian as well as military technology, with a special focus on the telecom and Internet sector. In 2009, National Security Agency Director General Keith Alexander called Chinese IP theft “the greatest transfer of wealth in history.”  He put the value of cyber-theft of U.S. trade secrets and intellectual property (IP) at a stunning $250 billion a year and called it “our future disappearing in front of us.” [more...]


The Russia Collusion Farce

When it comes to President Trump and the question of collusion with Russia, there is indeed a smoking gun. But it’s not the June 2016 meeting that Donald Trump, Jr., along with campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner, held in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer. The lawyer, Natalia V. Veselnitskaya, duped Don Jr. into setting up the meeting by claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. In fact, the meeting was a bait and switch. It turned out the lawyer had no meaningful information to offer on Mrs. Clinton. Rather, she wanted to interest the Trump team in a Moscow initiative to allow American families to adopt Russian children. The meeting, which lasted 20 minutes, was the sort any political campaign or media outlet would have agreed to. Read more in my book, The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game. [more...]
