WikiLeaks slams Trump for refusing to release tax return and urges people to send them 'so we can'

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 10:02:46 GMT

WikiLeaks slammed President Donald Trump on Sunday (22 January) for refusing to release his tax returns and has called on people to submit them so they can post them online. The whistle-blowing outfit's request came via Twitter after Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway told ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos that the president would not be releasing them contrary to his pledge to do so during the campaign season. "The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns," Conway said. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care. They voted for him, and...



Soros Has Ties to More than 50 Organizations Behind Women’s March on Washington

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:56:40 GMT

(The Free Thought Project) Washington, D.C. – An investigation by a New York Times affiliate has revealed that billionaire globalist financier George Soros, who recently called Donald Trump a “would-be dictator” during an interview at Davos, and whose Open Society Foundation works to finance and forward progressive causes across the world, and is intimately connected to numerous color revolutions, the Arab Spring, and various other political uprisings across the globe, has been revealed to be connected to more than 50 of the groups that organized the nationwide “Women’s Marches” that saw millions of Americans take to the streets across the...



How We Got Here

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:50:13 GMT

Submitted by Eric Peters via EricPetersAutos.com,America is in trouble because Americans got lazy. Not so much physically but morally. They began to care more about some passing thing than about the things that truly matter; the things that made America unlike other places.Better than other places.Things like principles; the plain meaning of words. The Fourth and Fifth Amendments, especially. Which were (past tense deliberate) laws written to articulate and protect principles that matter.It gradually became more important to – as Thomas More’s character in the play, A Man For All Seasons put it – cut down all the “trees”...



Protesters who destroyed property on Inauguration Day were part of well-organized group

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:49:27 GMT

Scores of demonstrators charged with rioting in the District on Friday were well organized, ready to confront police and prepared to violently disrupt the inauguration, according to some of the protesters and organizers. Details of the disturbances in a four-square-block area downtown that led to more than 230 arrests began emerging after protesters made their first court appearances Saturday, a process that continued through the evening as defendants were brought into D.C. Superior Court in batches of 10. Most faced a felony charge of rioting, which carries a maximum 10-year prison sentence. The preparation undertaken by protesters included arriving armed...



Jack Ma Accuses The US Of Spending $14 Trillion On War Instead Of Its People

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:26:44 GMT

In a CNBC clip, which slipped between the cracks last week,  Alibaba founder Jack Ma, who has been busy trying to get into Donald Trump's "circle of trust", spoke in Davos and blamed the problems of the United States on the United States itself, as a country which has spent trillions of dollars to wage war, instead of investing in infrastructure and its own people.Asked by Andrew Ross Sorkin about Trump's decision to impose new tariffs on Chinese imports to protect domestic American manufacturers, Ma said blaming China for any economic issues in the U.S. is misguided. If America...

TRUMP'S REVOLUTIONARY INAUGURAL SPEECH

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 08:00:25 GMT

In 1961, when John F. Kennedy gave his famous inaugural speech, it wasn’t controversial. It wasn’t considered radical. There were no protesters there to suggest he was being un-American, a man of privilege and wealth, protecting his own self-interest and the status quo. “Ask not what your country can do for you,” he said. “Ask what you can do for your country.” It was common sense back then. But Kennedy, who would sign into law what was the biggest tax cut in the country’s history at that point, understood what was needed to bring greater prosperity and jobs to a...



Accept President Trump and hold him accountable for promised change

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 07:41:54 GMT

American elected a president who promised change. It’s time to start encouraging him to make changes that benefit everyone. ALTHOUGH it won’t be easy for some, it’s time for Americans to get used to the sound of President Trump. We must now accept his presidency and press him to follow through on his promises to grow the economy, strengthen America and revitalize its middle class. This will require faith and engagement. This editorial board, which endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and other citizens will be challenged to look beyond Trump’s rhetoric — and troubling tweets — to assess actual policy...



I didn't really mean 'blow up the White House', says Madonna: Singer claims...

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 07:39:42 GMT

Madonna took to Instagram to say she was using a 'metaphor' when she said during the Women's March on Washington that she thought about 'blowing up the White House'.  On Sunday she shared a photo with her 8.6million followers of her wearing in the same furry black coat she wore to the march, overlain with white lettering that stated: 'I choose love! Are you with me?' She captioned the snap: 'Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. 'However I want to clarify some very important things. I...

How Trump made small-town America matter again (Must read)

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 07:06:36 GMT

The first time Donald J. Trump stepped onstage in Pennsylvania in April 2016 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, it was clear something very different was going on in this state, with this candidate. It was not because the rally was massive, or because it was boisterous, or that it was poorly organized, though all those things were true. Having already attended 18 of his rallies throughout primary states across the country, I found, in fact, that it looked very familiar. It was different because it was in Pennsylvania. It was a campaign that was designed to fail from...



Mattis Celebrates First Day At Pentagon By Blowing Up ISIS 31 Times

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 07:03:00 GMT

Newly minted Secretary of Defense James Mattis celebrated his first full day at the Pentagon by overseeing 31 strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Mattis entered the Pentagon Saturday with a smile for his first full day of work, and for good reason, considering the significant bombardment ISIS forces received. A variety of fighters, bombers and remotely piloted aircraft engaged in the bombing run, which saw 25 strikes in Syria and six in Iraq. In Syria, two strikes destroyed ISIS units and artillery near the town of Bab. ISIS forces in Raqqa, the terrorist group’s de facto capital,...

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:47:08 GMT

From USAToday:Trump begins with call to kill climate action planWASHINGTON —- As President Trump delivered his inaugural address Friday, his new White House team posted a proposal to eliminate President Obama’s environmental regulations. “For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry.

Hamas official says Trump is an ignoramus

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:42:52 GMT

The US President has failed to learn from history, a senior Hamas official said regarding Donald Trump’s remarks about “radical Islamic terrorism” in his inauguration speech. “This ignoramus did not study history and does not know what the fate of those who ignited the Crusader wars. We are an Islamic nation that may lose a battle, but we will win all the wars,” Mousa Abu Marzouk, a member of the Hamas politburo, wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday. Abu Marzouk, who is considered a contender to be the next Hamas politburo chairman, made an apparent reference to the ultimate...

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:42:13 GMT

The photo that the media has been showing of the Trump inauguration, that they have been using to FALSELY assert that the crowd as small, is a DECEPTION. The photo was not taken at noon when Trump was being sown in.

IE: the picture was taken an hour before the 9:30 AM opening ceremonies when the crowd was still filling in at not yet at full capacity! The media is once again...



Hamas: We'll fight embassy move 'using all means'

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:01:52 GMT

Hamas lawmaker Mushir al-Masri on Sunday declared that his organization will use all means to fight the planned move of the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Kol Yisrael radio reported. Al-Masri stated, according to the report, that moving the embassy would be a “crime” and “crossing a red line” by the U.S. administration. He added that the proper response to such a move would be for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to disassociate itself from previous agreements with the "occupation", as he put it. PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly warned against the embassy move in recent weeks, saying the...



Will Donald Trump’s boastful bluster drown out the Obama legacy? {Lib panic + BARF alert}

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 05:30:18 GMT

America is about to experience a profound sense of whiplash as power is transferred from a president whose eloquence brought him to the public stage to one whose modes of communication are largely limited to political pep rallies (including the occasional pep rally disguised as a press conference) and “mean tweets”. ...Barack Obama is one of a handful of presidents considered not just a good speaker but a great one (Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton come to mind). He shares with Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan the distinction of coming to prominence...

Donald Trump’s nominee for US Treasury secretary wants a bigger IRS

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 04:55:12 GMT

Donald Trump’s oft-used excuse for not releasing his tax returns is that they are still under audit at the US Internal Revenue Service—no matter that this doesn’t prevent their release—but if his pick for Treasury secretary gets his way, the interminable audit may end sooner. Steven Mnuchin, the investor tapped by Trump for the top job in US economic policy, told lawmakers at his confirmation hearing today (Jan. 19) that he would like to expand the workforce at the IRS and modernize technology there in order to collect more taxes. “The IRS headcount has gone down quite dramatically, almost 30%...

Lindsey Graham: "I Don't Know What America First Means"

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 04:18:07 GMT

Lindsey Graham was not in complete agreement with President Donald Trump's inauguration speech on Friday, saying that he "doesn't know what America first means." “To the president, if America first is a throwback to the 20’sand 30’s isolationism when it was first used as a phrase, the world would deteriorate even quicker, if it is a new way of Ronald Reagan’s peace through strength I would like to work with him. I don’t know what America first means,” Graham said on CBS’s “Face the Nation."






Blasting "False Economy," Trump Takes on the Federal Reserve

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 03:20:29 GMT

Taking aim at the Federal Reserve's politically motivated manipulation of the U.S. economy, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted the controversial central bank's artificially low interest rates. He also denounced the “very false economy” propped up by Fed monetary gimmicks. Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, though, hit back immediately, saying Trump should not malign or even comment on the increasingly unpopular institution that controls America's monetary system.Trump's comments, which sparked national headlines, came earlier this week at an Ohio campaign stop in response to a question from a reporter about possible interest rate hikes by the Fed later this month. “They're...
