Former Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann appeared on Jim Baker’s broadcast last week and indicated she might possibly enter the 2018 special election Senate race open due to Al Franken’s resignation. [Video Here]Mrs. Bachmann was known as a deficit hawk and previously represented Minesota’s 6th District from 2007 to 2015. In addition to founding the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives, she also ran for the 2012 presidential nomination. She is now 61-years-old. Interesting consideration. During her previous time in office she was often a target of severe sexist attacks from left-wing media pundits and Democrat opposition.

Dem Wants To Block Trump From Nuclear
First Strike Without Congressional Permission

California Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu told his Twitter followers Tuesday night to support his legislation to prevent President Trump from launching a nuclear first strike without congressional authorization. The bill, known as the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017, (H.R. 669), had been proposed by Lieu and was referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs last January, just four days after Trump was sworn into office. According to the bill summary, the legislation would bar the president from using the military “to conduct a first-use nuclear strike unless such strike is conducted pursuant to a congressional

A generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.” Today, amid a growing criminal inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional Republicans are again chasing rabbits. We know because we’re their favorite quarry. In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia

Daily Caller, by Tim Pearce    Original Article

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partly or completely cleaned seven of the most toxic land sites, called Superfund sites, in the U.S. in 2017, according to the EPA. Of the seven sites designated for cleanup, three were completely cleansed, while four others still require some work. The cleanup effort is a significant improvement over the year prior when the EPA completely cleaned one Superfund site and parts of another. “We have made it a priority to get these sites cleaned up faster and in the right way,” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said in a statement. “By creating a streamlined task

t’s every man and woman for themselves as the collective groups of architects behind the entire FBI Counterintelligence Operation, that brought us the 18-month-long ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ narrative, now attempt to back-track from all previous assertions. Two days ago we shared very strong confidence the joint FBI (counterintelligence) and DOJ (National Security Division) scheme was going to come out. The reason is simple, they left too big a trail of factual and provable evidence of their activity.It is not coincidental that just as scrutiny over the 2016 FBI FISA court application gains traction in congress and media, the insider intelligence

Two Democrats were just sworn in to the Senate this week: Doug Jones of Alabama and Tina Smith of Minnesota. One man waits in the wings to do the same – former GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. The Trump White House is likely watching the Senate developments very closely as they could prove pivotal to ongoing attempts to destroy the Trump presidency. Smith is simply a side move for Democrats, but Jones is a big gain. He is the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in a generation. It is believed both Smith and Jones support the “Impeach

On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans. Conway, the campaign’s manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election — of this she was sure — but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That

Trump Says Bannon ‘Lost His Mind’
After Leaving White House

President Donald Trump denounced his former top strategist, Steve Bannon, on Wednesday, saying that he ‘lost his mind’ after leaving the White House last summer. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” Trump said of Bannon in a statement the White House issued. “Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look.” The statement represented an emphatic break from the person considered the architect of Trump’s presidential campaign. Bannon continued to enjoy access to the president after he left the White House, but that has ended, one person familiar with the

Republicans’ first victory of 2018 will likely be Judge Timothy J. Kelly’s denial of the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction in English v. Trump following a hearing on the Friday before Christmas. The case began over Thanksgiving weekend when Richard Cordray, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s first director, promoted his chief of staff Leandra English to deputy director. The soon-to-be Ohio gubernatorial candidate then announced his resignation would take effect at the end of the day and declared English acting director until the Senate confirmed a new one. Two hours later, President Trump ignored Cordray’s self-serving misinterpretation of the Federal

Actress Meryl Streep says curiosity over her silence regarding disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein should be directed at other women: First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump. The New York Times interviewed actor Tom Hanks and Ms. Streep for their upcoming movie “The Post,” but the conversation soon turned to Hollywood’s sexual misconduct scandals and the #MeToo movement. The Academy Award winning actress said that scrutiny over her muted early response is misguided. “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me,” Ms. Streep told the newspaper for an interview published Wednesday.

Slated to report to prison Jan. 29, former Congresswoman Corrine Brown is asking a federal appeals court to allow her to remain free while she continues to fight her conviction on charges related to a charity scam. Brown´s attorney, William Mallory Kent, filed a 37-page document Friday at the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that seeks to keep her out of prison while an appeal is pending. The request is based on what will be a key issue in the appeal: whether U.S. District Judge Timothy Corrigan improperly removed a juror who said during deliberations that the "Holy Spirit" told

For most of the Obama era, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) pushed the legal envelope on every front in order to promote the interests of labor unions. Under President Trump, once the board finally attained a Republican majority—even if only for a few days—that battered envelope began to be repaired. It took until this fall for President Trump to finally nominate and obtain Senate confirmation of two new Republicans to the board, employer attorneys Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel. Trump also finally nominated and got Peter B. Robb confirmed as the new NLRB General Counsel.

A well-known family vlogger took advantage of sub-zero temperatures to explore the Mpemba effect by throwing boiling water into the air and freezing it. David Freiheit, from Quebec, Canada, posted a video to his YouTube channel where he throws a huge bucket of boiling water into the air before it turns into ice.

Vulnerable boys usually have their first psychotic breaks around age 20, and Mike has had about one hospitalization every year. He´s incurable and can´t hold a job or have a family, and his friendly phone calls are always the same weird word salad. He´s schizophrenic, but he wants to say he loves me, and I tell him the same. His learning ability seems frozen. To learn any new

Tracking statistics from the moving company United Van Lines indicate that Americans are still heading west, while parts of the Northeast and Midwest are losing people. On Tuesday the suburban St. Louis-based moving company released its 41st annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers´ state-to-state migration patterns. Three of the top four destination states are in the West including Oregon, Idaho and Nevada. (Map) However Vermont, a Northeast state, had the highest percentage of inbound migration in 2017. About 68 percent of state-to-state moves in Vermont were inbound last year. At the other end of the spectrum is Illinois, which

Is it time for conservative skeptics and opponents of Trump to stop worrying and embrace the president? ... Those are the questions conservative Trump skeptics face nearly every day. They’re the foundation of an argument that calls us back to our “team,” to the partisan battlefield that seems to define our time. The argument goes something like this: A president who many feared would govern like an authoritarian nationalist–populist has instead pursued relatively conventional conservative policies. In fact, on that score he’s even exceeded expectations.

(Snip) But, in a sign of official concern about the resilience of the protests, the Revolutionary Guards commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said he had dispatched forces to Isfahan, Lorestan and Hamadan provinces to tackle “the new sedition”.

Over the holidays, Robert Mueller, the special counsel, leaked word to the hate-Trump media that in the coming year of 2018, he would not stop with a simple failure to find any truth in the "Russian collusion" charges against POTUS Trump. In a display of truly Stalinist police abuse, Mr. Mueller will keep going until he finds a crime, any crime at all. The FBI, apparently led by Trump-hater Strzok, performed a raid on the Paul Manafort home while the family was still asleep, a surprise intimidation tactic commonly used by Hitler´s Gestapo against innocent civilian families, with the purpose

A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported. Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it. Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments. With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric.
