Mazen Malik: Oregon state official has terrorist-supporting background

Most Oregonians know Mazen Malik, a senior economist at the Oregon State Legislature, from his occasional appearances touting the alleged tax revenue bonanza that marijuana sales have brought to Oregon. But many likely do not realize that in the 1980s, Mazen Malik was an active supporter of Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), an anti-Israel organization whose horrific terrorist acts have resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

It is important to understand that communists worked with radical Islamic organizations just as they do today. This unholy alliance has been described as the Red Green Axis and is discussed in the film, the Enemies Within.

Schumer announces Democrat strategy for Healthcare - as promised, single-payer is ‘on the table’

Last week I shared a video of Bob Casey suggesting that a single-payer bill could appear in “the next couple weeks.” As I said then, this was always the plan. A single-payer system - not unlike the one that just handed Charlie Gard a death sentence - is the ultimate goal of every anti-constitutional leftist.  It’s the glorious panacea through which they can implement all their social programs, limit your options, tremendously expand taxation, and punish you for exercising your rights.

It’s the socialist Holy Grail.

Sen. David Perdue: Trump is doing exactly what he told the American people he would do

So far, President Trump is doing exactly what he told the American people he was going to do. Job one is to get the economy going again. Georgians and Americans elected him as President of the United States because he is an outsider to the Washington system. As an outsider, he can break the gridlock in Washington and begin to get real results. His goal was clear: Make America Great Again, and the results we have seen so far are nothing short of encouraging.

After eight years of failed policies and weak leadership abroad, there is still much work to do to reengage with the rest of the world. Looking back over the last six months, it’s easy to see our economy is in the early stages of a potential turnaround.

Resist all you want, liberals: We’re focused on results, results, results

The first six months of accomplishments by the Trump administration are impressive, but you would not know it listening to the liberal media and the Democrats.

As the liberal media are obsessing over the resignation of Sean Spicer, they are missing the big point. As he said in his interview on Sean Hannity’s show on Friday, his resignation opens the way for a fresh start with the media. As Dan pointed out, his departure is not going to impact one iota of what the president is trying to do, which is a lot.

Turns out police find a way to charge those awful kids who mocked the drowning man after all

You can’t watch this and not feel rage and indignation at what you’re seeing and hearing. It’s horrible beyond words:

And it was only natural once people saw the video that they wanted the teens arrested and charged with . . . something. They certainly deserve it. The problem, though, was that it wasn’t clear they actually broke any laws. There’s no law against being a jerk, and there’s also no law requiring you to try to rescue someone when they’re in trouble (except perhaps in Latham, Massachusetts). You’re not even required to call 911. It’s the right thing to do, obviously, but it’s not against the law not to.

Message to Republicans: In War there is No Substitute for Victory

Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President?  But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down.  It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned, third world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump.

It matters not that there is a lack of substance to the charges of Russian collusion.  That a charge of treason has been bandied about by Democrat Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine

to justify impeachment of Trump shows both madness and utter ignorance of the Constitutional definition of treason. It also begs the commonsense question of how a leader of the opposition party who lost thinks he can resurrect credibility by applying the extreme charge of treason to a man whose “America First” patriotism is so incontestable that even cynics don’t doubt it.

The Truth is a Battle of Perception

“In the Name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…” 

Blessing myself, with these words and signs in Christian prayer, I began my speech at a Tea Party Rally in Jackson, New Jersey in the summer of 2009. On an interesting note, not knowing whether or not I was Preacher up on that stage, nearly half of the 3,000 or so patriots in that open field, blessed themselves along with me.

I went on in prayer saying, “Dearly Beloved! We are gathered here today to remember the United Sta…tes…Oh Wait! What is this I’m reading? We seem to be having technical difficulties with my teleprompter…excuse me…Ah! Ah!...”

Politico Writer’s Beef with Trump: Hess Too Fat to be President. Seriously…

Liberal television host and author Touré Neblett seized on a Politico article published Tuesday. The 2,500-word Politico article focused not on anything policy related, but instead centered entirely around President Donald Trump’s weight.

“Politico says Trumpy is the least athletic president in decades which is a nice & polite way of saying he’s a fat slob like Jabba the Hut,” Neblett tweeted Wednesday.

Yes, you read that right. Of all the issues facing the country right now, Ben Strauss, the author of the piece, elected to weigh in on Trump’s physical fitness to be president. What’s worse, Neblett used the story to basically fat shame the president, which liberals usually oppose.

FOR DEMOCRATS, THERE’S NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL

Despite the continual drama surrounding President Trump and his administration, it is comforting to know that his political opposition is in total chaos. Since the 2008 presidential election of Barack Obama, Democrats have lost over 1,000 state legislative seats across the country. While Democrats have total control of the Governorship and state legislatures in only five states, today Republicans have the most legislative seats in the history of the party.

With 33 GOP Governors, control of the U.S. House, Senate and White House, the Republican Party dominates the national political scene today. Unfortunately for the President, Democrats still maintain control over the liberal media and the “deep state,” the mammoth and powerful federal bureaucracy. Thus, the President has to endure an unfair, biased and ever expanding investigation by a Special Prosecutor, who should have never been appointed.

Trump should muster an international rescue of Venezuela

WASHINGTON, D.C. — There are not enough teargas canisters or bullets in Venezuela to keep dictator Nicolás Maduro in power—precisely because his regime does not have the cash available to support its repressive apparatus and import food. 

Although Maduro’s Cuban and Russian masters are willing to see hungry Venezuelans beaten into submission, the international community is not.

There is an emerging consensus among key nations in the region and among bipartisan leaders in Congress that Venezuelans can resolve this crisis if they are able to choose a new government that will end violent repression, respect democratic institutions, and rebuild a free market economy.  Urgent action by the Trump administration can ensure this outcome.

Flip California, says Travis Allen, Candidate for Governor

California Governor Jerry Brown’s heir-apparent, extremely progressive left-wing Gavin Newsom, may not be a shoe-in, after all, when it comes to California’s 2018 race for Governor.  While Democrats say Gavin Newsom is a sure thing, we must remember they thought the same of Hillary Clinton.  Newsom has competition in Travis Allen, an energizing figure cut from a cloth similar to the one Donald Trump came from. . . at least in terms of attitude and fortitude.

In Southern California, major political candidates often forget about the Inland Empire, an area that is comprised largely of the heavily populated San Bernardino and Riverside metropolitan areas.  They instead tend to focus on Los Angeles, San Diego, a number of coastal communities, the Bay Area, and Sacramento.  Travis Allen, who has announced he’s running for Governor of the State of California, broke that tendency, and came out to Riverside on Thursday Night to address the area’s politically active movers and shakers at the Riverside County Republican Party Central Committee Meeting.

U.S. Health Care Is World’s Best, Regardless of What The Left Says

This is the second in a three-part series.

In Part 1 of this series, we discussed the content and tone of the political rhetoric leftist propagandists use to criticize the proposed GOP health care plans vis-à-vis ObamaCare. In part 2, we will describe the propaganda efforts used by progressives to cite dubious statistics to tar and misrepresent the U.S. health care system.

A recent commentary illustrates this propaganda. An article in The British Medical Journal entitled, “Medical error — the third leading cause of death in the U.S,” compares our “broken system” to those of other industrialized nations that purportedly are cheaper and better.

Health care: Get back in there and fix this mess

President Trump had a plan all along in case Republicans failed to repeal and replace ObamaCare. And boy did they fail.

I suspected we might be going in this direction as soon as the Senate announced its intention to push aside the House-passed American Health Care Act and rewrite the bill. That spelled disaster all along, because you’ve got too many RINOs in the Senate who don’t really want free-market health care.

Susan Collins appears to be the biggest problem of all the RINOs. She insists that ObamaCare is “so interwoven” into the fabric of America that you can’t repeal it without a replacement, but she refuses to support any of the replacements.

No, Media .... 26 Million People Won’t Die if Obamacare is Repealed

Of a fallen tree all make kindling, says the old proverb. And like most refrains, it conveys an element of truth.

The fact that Republicans are having difficulty agreeing on a winning alternative plan to ObamaCare makes both the Senate and House proposals looming targets for critics.

The Left’s ultimate goal is to dismantle the American health care system and turn it into an instrument for people control — the government as single payer, in other words, fully socialized medicine “as in all other industrialized nations.”

State Department Says No One Cares Anymore About Hillary’s Stupid Emails

Nate Silver undertook an interesting what-if project this week with a story on what would things be like if Hillary Clinton had been elected president.

Merrick Garland is on the Supreme Court, and Neil Gorsuch is not. Brian Fallon is the press secretary, and Sean Spicer is not. It is Hillary Clinton under investigation for ties to Russia, and not Donald Trump. Huma Abedin is the White House chief of staff.

Hillary feuds with the press. Her approval numbers at the six-month mark are lower than any president since the 1930s. She is more a caretaker than an implementer of bold new ideas. Congress went Republican, so her agenda goes nowhere. Most of what could be done through executive action was done by Barack Obama. And the press continues to hound her to show progress on something … anything.
