Will the Electoral College Survive the Election?

Ever since Trump beat Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, the uber left has been attacking the Presidential Electoral College. Their main argument is that Clinton won the popular vote and Trump won the electoral vote and in a “democracy,” the popular vote should count. Of course, this misses the point: America is not a democracy; it’s a Constitutional Republic formed by a group of “Free and Independent States” (The Declaration of Independence) that joined together for the common good. Plus, the uber left are upset they didn’t win. They believe the Electoral College must be wrong, not Clinton, not the Democratic Party, not their leftist policies, and not the fact that most Americans believed America was “off track.” Attacking the Electoral College is also part of the left’s attempt to delegitimize Trump and his future administration.

Al Gore’s Documentary Sequel Set to Debut at Sundance

Former vice president Al Gore is set to debut a sequel to his Academy Award-winning film “An Inconvenient Truth,” which is a documentary that warns of imminent worldwide crises due to global warming. According to Paramount, the studio that green-lighted the project, the latest installment “follows Gore as he continues his decades-long fight to build a more sustainable future for our planet.” The film’s financing was provided in part by the left-wing finance specialist, Participant Media. Gore’s sequel is slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on opening night, January 19, 2017. The movie will reportedly be part of an added attraction at the festival called “The New Climate.” The former veep will also be a participant in a panel discussion that will take place on the issue of climate change.

How Fake News and Delusions Win Elections

The CIA and Democrats are claiming the Russians hacked the DNC servers to give information to WikiLeaks to embarrass Hillary Clinton and the Democrats as a whole. If that’s true, the Russians are being accused of taking e-mails from an unsecured server and giving them to a media outlet that would show the American people what the Democrat Party actually thinks about them, therefore allowing them to make an informed decision to vote against the hypocrisy of the DNC and Progressive Left. So, revealing evil and telling the truth is now a bad thing? [more...]

Yet Another International Trade Deal Has Fallen Apart

Various pending international trade agreements continue to experience serious delays and impasses in 2016 negotiations. We’ve seen such problems this year with TPP, TTIP, TiSA, and CETA. The latest casualty among trade agreements is the Environmental Goods Agreement (EGA) between the EU, U.S., China and a dozen other countries. The EGA seeks to lower tariffs on 54 products and services related to green energy production, including wind turbines and water treatment filters. The EGA was supposed to have been concluded last weekend, but negotiations fell apart when China backed away from a proposed list of the country’s products that would be affected by the trade agreement, and substituted a new product list during the final hours of the weekend ministerial meeting. Inside U.S. Trade reported, “The list did not contain items that other members strongly believed should be in the agreement, such as gas turbines, while it also contained items that were considered to be red lines by others.” There is no current hope of the EGA being finalized in 2016. [more...]

Why I’m Filing an FEC Complaint Against CNN (and so should Trump)

For decades, conservatives’ complaints about media bias have fallen on deaf ears. The 2016 presidential election marks the first time voters had actual evidence of direct collusion between reporters at CNN, The New York Times, CNBC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Conservative media must take action. The evidence of collusion between CNN, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and the DNC is the tip of the iceberg. WikiLeaks revealed only a small part of the larger picture. Corporate contributions to political campaigns are prohibited – whether they are in-kind or otherwise – and CNN is a corporation. Even if CNN’s in-kind donations to Clinton’s campaign were legal, the value of the broadcast airtime gifted to her campaign would be far in excess of legal contribution limits. This represents not only a serious violation of the public trust but federal election law. Yet no action has been taken by CNN to investigate the employees who leaked debate questions to Donna Brazile, or fire Wolf Blitzer who used DNC-prepared questions for his interview with Donald Trump, or the scores of CNN reporters who participated in secret dinner meetings to coordinate on framing and messaging with Clinton campaign staffers. CNN should consider itself lucky that this election wasn’t a criminal trial because they would have been found guilty of media malpractice in the first degree. [more...]

The D.C. Swamp is Already Seducing Trump

As his campaign drew to a close, Trump adopted the "drain the swamp" mantra, and drew huge applause from his base for it. But the D.C. swamp was paying attention and immediately went into action. They found - as we all are finding - the soft underbelly of Trump: flattery. Indeed, with Trump, flattery will get you everywhere. Two days after the election, President Obama discovered this easily exploitable Trump weakness when he sat for 90 minutes in the Oval Office, praised Trump to his face for his campaign and his abilities and - presto! - Trump began softening on two issues dear to Obama: global warming and Obamacare. Trump even went from calling Obama "the worst president, maybe in the history of our country" to asking for the president's counsel. And since then, they have had a series of long phone calls; clearly Obama is convincing Trump to change his tune on a range of issues. [more...]
