  • The Anatomy Of Hillary Clinton's $84 Million Money-Laundering Scheme

    Authored by Dan Backer via Investors.com, In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of my client, Alabama engineer Shaun McCutcheon, in his challenge to the Federal Election Commission's (FEC) outdated "aggregate limits," which effectively limited how many candidates any one donor could support. Anti-speech liberals railed against McCutcheon's win, arguing it would create supersized "Joint Fundraising Committees" (JFCs). In court, they claimed these JFCs would allow a single donor to cut a...

  • McCain Associate Subpoenaed Over Trump Dossier

  • Pat Buchanan Asks "Did The FBI Conspire To Stop Trump?"

    Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org, The original question the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was to answer was a simple one: Did he do it? Did Trump, or officials with his knowledge, collude with Vladimir Putin’s Russia to hack the emails of John Podesta and the DNC, and leak the contents to damage Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump? A year and a half into the investigation, and, still, no “collusion” has been found. Yet the investigation goes on, at the demand of the...

    "This is possibly the most important chart in the world..." As 13D Global Strategy and Research noted: A breach of the top-line of the channel could signal a major reversal in the multi-decade downtrend in UST bond yields."

The reason may simply be that the American public is not believing the false narratives that are being sold to them. And who can blame them? It starts at the top after all. When Donald Trump claims the tax plan would personally hurt him everyone knows that’s simply not true. And still his agents insists on...

It varies by county, which is obviously unfair, and reports are very confusing on what...
