Leaders like UK’s Johnson who wooed Trump face tricky reset

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said a lot of nice things about Donald Trump over the years, from expressing admiration for the U.S. president to suggesting he might be worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

But after a mob of Trump supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Johnson has changed his tune.

Trump, he said, had encouraged the violent insurrection, had disputed the result of a “free and fair election,” and was “completely wrong.”

Foreign Policy Priorities for the Biden Administration

US democracy has been vividly on display and scrutinized by the world for the entirety of Trump’s presidency. In the years ahead, the global balance of democratic and authoritarian values will be shaped not only by US leadership abroad but especially by the ability of the Biden administration to fix America’s democracy.

Today, the US is wracked by internal division and the distribution of economic opportunities and benefits across society is radically unequal. Confidence in the leadership, the electoral system, and the capacity of the state to deliver has taken a serious hit.

EXC: Biden Just Picked A CIA Director With a 7-Year-Long Relationship with Chinese Communist Party Fronts

Bill Burns – Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency – serves as the President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace which has over a decade-long relationship with the China-United States Exchange Foundation and other Chinese Communist Party-linked groups.

Burns has served as President of the think tank since 2014, overseeing its involvement with the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) which dates back to at least 2009.

They Are Going To Try To Ban Donald Trump From Running For President For The Rest Of His Life

They were never going to be satisfied with just defeating Donald Trump in one election.  Ultimately, their goal is to personally destroy Donald Trump and the movement that he started so that it will never rise again.  They want to make sure that Trump will not run for president in 2024 or any future election, and they could potentially accomplish that if there is a vote in the U.S. Senate on whether or not Trump should be banned from running for office for the rest of his life.  This has never been done to any other president in our entire history.  Not even Richard Nixon was treated like this.  But the Democrats want to make this happen.  These people are playing for keeps, and they really do intend to strike a death blow to Trump’s political career.

Hillary Did It!! Declassified Docs Show 'Steele Dossier' Released To Distract FBI From 'Server Scandal'

Declassified records of the FBI’s interview with former British spy Christopher Steele show that he betrayed the FBI by leaking to the media at the command of his client, Hillary Clinton because the FBI had reestablished the investigation into Clinton’s use of an illegal private email server to handle government work.

Why Are Biden’s Top Ten Administrators Dual Citizens?

It's truly an interesting question, right? Why is it that some of the biggest people in power, assigned by Biden, all have dual citizenship? A caller has a theory that possibly the Israeli dual citizenship is a protective shield to get them to ultimate power.

Right On Cue: As Biden Takes Office, Media and Tyrannical Dems Drop Lockdown Sham

Revolver News just showcased how a new study out of Canada has confirmed our study from last summer finding that the long-term mortality impact of lockdowns will drastically exceed any lives saved from prevented coronavirus deaths.

But it’s not just Revolver and a few academics who are souring on lockdowns. Like clockwork, the most famous lockdown enforcers on the left are turning against them as well, just in time for Joe Biden’s inauguration. The timing is so blatant, so cynical, that it seems like a deliberate ritual to humiliate a servile public.

For months, New York governor Andrew Cuomo has ruled like a tyrant over the people of New York. Religious believers holding drive-in church services were threatened with huge fines, or even arrest. Thousands of restaurants and other businesses failed as Cuomo kept the state in strict lockdown mode deep into the summer.

Why There Is No Mention Of “Democracy” In The U.S. Constitution

I often wonder at the fact that many people who claim to support the U.S. Constitution have utterly abandoned its key terms and provisions. One of the signs of that abandonment has been the use of the term “democracy” to describe the form of government established by the Constitution of the United States. Yet that term is nowhere used in our key founding documents—not in the Constitution, and not in the Declaration of Independence, which summarizes the Constitution’s premises. The reason for this is simple. Democracy does not achieve what America’s Founders understood to be the essential purpose of constitutional government. James Madison epitomized their understanding in Federalist 51 when he wrote:

In the First Declassified Russia Collusion Document Released – Christopher Steele Admitted in September 2017 that He Leaked His Dossier in 2016 to Help Hillary Clinton

Last week President Trump asked that the Russia collusion documents finally be released to the public and yesterday the first document was released:

On Tuesday night, hours before the President was to leave office, the first batch of documents were released and they are related to the FBI’s interview with former UK MI6 agent Christopher Steele.

...

The FBI knew likely before September 2017 but for sure at that time that the Steele dossier was created to help Hillary Clinton. They knew this but still kept the Russia collusion fake investigation open for another couple years so they could harass President Trump and attempt to remove him from office.

Dems Start To Panic At Overplaying Their Hand

We have had a Communist Coup in the United States. This has torn our country apart, with very few people believing we are still a Constitutional Republic.

The majority of the country voted to re-elect President Donald Trump, yet the Dems will coronate His Fraudulency on Wednesday to take the reigns and complete the Fundamental Transformation of our beloved Republic to their Marxist Dynasty.

Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen (TN) on Monday gave an indication, however, that the Dem traitors are concerned that they may have overplayed their hand. They obviously realize that the majority of this country voted for President Trump, and now they have to rely on these same right-wingers to protect their new Marxist leaders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After a coup, there follows a dictatorship. Otherwise the coup does not survive it's own creation.

25 Insane, Crazy Agendas Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Will Push on America if They Seize Power After Rigging the Elections

With the rule of law now utterly rejected by every layer of the judicial system in the nation — including SCOTUS — there is no longer any controlling legal authority which will halt the rapid advance of the Left’s most ambitious agendas. And with Democrats now proving they can steal elections right in front of us, even with overwhelming evidence literally recorded on video cameras as the ballot counting crimes took place, they know nothing can stop them from fulfilling their most crazed visions of a Marxist society rooted in authoritarianism, censorship and lies.

Big Media, Big Tech and Big Government have now merged into one gargantuan monstrosity which allows no dissent and no challenges to its power. Obey or be crushed. Parler is being steamrolled by Apple as a demonstration of what happens if you dare suffer under the illusion that such a thing as the First Amendment even exists in this country anymore.

Biden Appoints “Transgender” To Be HHS No. 2. And No Mean Jokes!

“President-elect” Joe Biden has appointed another “transgender” to his administration.

The latest elevation of either a fraud or a loon to a top government position is one “Rachel” Levine, a “transgender woman” who vaguely resembles Ben Franklin and runs health matters in Pennsylvania. He’ll be the assistant secretary of health and human services, the agency’s No. 2 job.

Yet the pick is hardly a bolt from the blue. Two months ago, Biden picked a “transgender” to run the military side of his transition.

If the Senate OKs the confused pediatrician’s nomination, the Washington Post tells us, he’ll be the first “openly transgender federal official” so confirmed.

She’s Our Guy!

Biden considers former Big Tech attorneys to lead DOJ’s antitrust division

Prominent corporate attorneys who formerly worked for Big Tech companies like Google and Facebook are in the running to lead the Department of Justice Antitrust Division under President-elect Joe Biden’s administration, reported the Intercept on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Biden is considering Susan Davies or Renata Hesse, among other names, for the antitrust division’s chief role. The two are decorated Silicon Valley lawyers specializing in antitrust laws who held White House and Justice Department posts before helping tech giants escape litigations.

Biden is considering the two even though anti-monopolist groups are imploring the incoming administration to appoint aggressive leaders who will reinvigorate the country’s limp antitrust enforcement. Agencies like the Antitrust Division have let Big Tech companies off the hook in many instances, leading to “a growing crisis of monopoly power” in the last decade.

Trump Orders Declassification of Some Crossfire Hurricane Documents

President Donald Trump has ordered the declassification of previously confidential documents related to “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s investigation of his 2016 campaign.

The move comes on his last night in office.

The materials were not immediately made known to the public.

The Department of Justice provided the White House on Dec. 30, 2020, with a binder of materials related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, portions of which were classified and not released to Congress or the public, Trump said in a memorandum for the attorney general, the director of National Intelligence, and the director of the CIA.

Blackmail: On Trump's Final Evening In Office, McConnell Sucks Up To Dems & Protects Deep State

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw all the blame for the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol on the shoulders of one-time ally President Trump, accusing him of encouraging the protesters to approach the building. It came just an hour after Gateway Pundit reported that McConnell told Trump if he pardoned Julian Assange, the Senate will definitely convict him.

"The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people," the Kentucky Republican announced in one of his closing floor addresses as majority leader.

McConnell further blamed the attack on "failures of institutions, protocols, and planning."

Bill Barr has said that Donald Trump's allegations of election fraud and his claims that the Presidency was 'stolen' from him 'precipitated' the DC riots, in his first TV interview since resigning as Attorney General.

Barr was asked about Trump and his campaign's claims about the legitimacy of the election, and appeared to take a swipe at his former boss.

Hillary Still Fixated On Loss To Trump And Trying To Tie Putin Into Capitol Riot Story

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her podcast about the riot in the U.S. Capitol earlier this month and eluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have been receiving updates about the chaos from President Trump.

Clinton, who hosts the podcast, "You and Me Both," told Pelosi that she would be interested in obtaining President Trump's phone records to see if he might have been on the phone with Putin while the Capitol was being breached.

Trump Pardons Lil Wayne, Steve Bannon, But Not Himself, Or Julian Assange

President Trump granted celemency to dozens of people on Wednesday, keeping alive a tradition of last-minute pardons observed by President Obama. The biggest names on the list included Trump's former campaign chief and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, as well as rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black (the former worked with Trump on a plan to financially power black Americans), former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (one of many American big-city mayors who have ended up in federal prison on corruption charges), and former top GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy, who pleaded guilty in October to acting as an unregistered foreign agent.

Of course, the two biggest names that weren't on the list were those of President Trump himself (remember all those MSM anonymously sourced stories claiming Trump was "considering" it?) and Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange.

The Lies They Tell: Exposing the Narrative of the Left

I hang out with a lot of theater people. As a photo-journalist I’m often asked to take headshots or other cast photos. Being around these theatrical people has opened my eyes to a few things: actors tend to quote the lines from their play, whether they’re onstage or off. It’s almost like they get the lines stuck in their heads and then feel the need to spout them, no matter where they happen to be.

In that regard, they remind me of Democrats.

Supporters of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden have criticised outgoing US President Donald Trump for failing to pardon the WikiLeaks founder and NSA whistleblower before leaving office, calling the oversight “disappointing”.

Trump frees former aides from ethics pledge, lobbying ban

President Donald Trump, in one of his final acts of office, released current and former members of his administration from the terms of their ethics pledge, which included a five-year ban on lobbying their former agencies.

The ethics pledge was outlined in one of Trump’s first executive orders, signed on Jan. 28, 2017, as part of his campaign pledge to “drain the swamp.” It required Trump’s political appointees to agree to the lobbying ban, as well as pledge not to undertake work that would require them to register as a “foreign agent” after leaving government. Trump’s order authorized the attorney general to investigate any breaches of the ethics pledge and to pursue civil suits if necessary.

Trump signed the one-page revocation of the order on Tuesday, and it was released by the White House shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, hours before his term ends.

MyPillow is 'unavailable' on Macy's site as more retailers sever ties with CEO Mike Lindell over his election fraud claims: Kohl's and Bed Bath & Beyond claim they've dropped brand due to 'decreased customer demand'

MyPillow is facing further pressure from retailers after CEO Mike Lindell's continued support of conspiracy theories regarding election fraud -- but some store chains are claiming it's due to lagging demand.

On Tuesday, the Macy's website listed MyPillow products as 'currently unavailable', one day after Lindell said he'd been dropped by Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl's and Wayfair.

Macy's and MyPillow did not immediately respond to inquiries from DailyMail.com asking whether the retailer had formally dropped the product line.

The Unwelcome Return of the Real Purveyors of Violence

With the mainstream media still obsessing about the January 6th “violent coup attempt” at the US Capitol Building, the incoming Biden Administration looks to be chock full of actual purveyors of violent coups. Don’t look to the mainstream media to report on this, however. Some of the same politicians and bureaucrats denouncing the ridiculous farce at the Capitol as if it were the equivalent of 9/11 have been involved for decades in planning and executing real coups overseas. In their real coups, many thousands of civilians have died.

If Joe Biden were reading the newspapers – or better yet, NRA-ILA’s own Grassroots Alert – he would know that a viewpoint uniting an especially large and diverse group of Americans in 2020 was the necessity of owning a firearm for personal protection. Last year was the busiest ever for the national background check system used to process retail firearms transactions.

We’ve finally arrived at Regime Change Week and the 400-year-long election will soon be at an end. We hope.

The only thing that is certain going forward is that there is no middle ground when it comes to the way Americans view the future. One side seems to think the Republic is headed for a happier, calmer time. People like me think this once-great country is about to begin its death rattle. There’s a chasm here that isn’t going to be closed up any time soon.

Nuclear: Trump Takes Last Stab At Ridding Washington Of Entrenched, Deep-State Bureaucrats

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Jan. 18 prohibiting career bureaucrats—as opposed to presidential appointees—from authorizing and having the final word on new federal regulations.

“The President chooses Federal agency heads who exercise executive authority and implement his regulatory agenda. The American people, in electing the President, thereby have a role in choosing the individuals who govern them,” the president’s new order states.

“However, some agencies have chosen to blur these lines of democratic accountability by allowing career officials to authorize, approve, and serve as the final word on regulations. This practice transfers the power to set rules governing Americans’ daily lives from the President, acting through his executive subordinates, to officials insulated from the accountability that national elections bring. This practice undermines the power of the American people to choose who governs them and I am directing steps to end it.”

NOT SO FAST, BIDEN: THE STREET DOESN’T BUY IT

Last week’s storming of the Capitol was a turning point in many regards, but what we want to focus on is what it signifies to the global community.

Since the end of WW2, America has represented democracy. Its power and prestige, in terms of its ability to invade other countries in the name of freedom and democracy, hasn’t been challenged much.

There have always been detractors to the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and others, but no Western World leader or emerging nation has ever publicly and formally come out in defiance of the American strategy of policing the world.

We believe that last week’s Capitol Hill incident will greatly damage any future attempts of U.S. diplomacy to pressure countries to embrace “Americanism” since they’ll strike back, saying that America’s democracy is, in itself, broken.

Newly declassified transcripts shed further light on FBI’s farcical failure in Russiagate hoax

The just-published transcripts of interviews carried out by US lawmakers scrutinising the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe reveal the incompetence, bias, and dishonesty that marred the investigation from the very start.

On January 15, the Senate Judiciary Committee declassified a number of interviews conducted over the course of 2020 with assorted officials conducted during its investigation of the origins and aftermath of Crossfire Hurricane, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) probe into potential collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

In an accompanying statement, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, Committee Chair, said the material furthered his contention that Crossfire Hurricane was “a massive system failure” on the part of senior FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, who were “either grossly incompetent or knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds.”

With just three days left until the end of the Trump administration, the secretary of state can still be considered one of the president’s ardent loyalists. While many around Trump deserted him in the fallout of the Capitol violence, Pompeo has stood by him and spent his final weeks spewing self-congratulatory and praiseworthy tweets glorifying his own legacies on Iran, Cuba, China, and more.

“Litigation regarding these issues is imminent,” Dominion’s letter to Lindell reportedly added.

Dominion has been accused by President Donald Trump and others of voting inaccuracies during the election, but no evidence has ever been presented to back their statements up.

Several media outlets have issued corrections and retractions following legal demands from Dominion and Smartmatic, another company that provides voting technology to states.

A pediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician general, Levine was appointed to her current post by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in 2017, making her one of the few transgender people serving in elected or appointed positions nationwide. She won past confirmation by the Republican-majority Pennsylvania Senate and has emerged as the public face of the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, formerly of The Intercept, gave his broad assessment and predictions of the incoming Joe Biden administration during Chris Hedges' Sunday show On Contact.

"I don’t think it’s particularly difficult... to know what to expect from the Biden administration," Greenwald told Hedges early in the interview, which focused on both the growing immense power of Silicon Valley as well as an expected return to disastrous foreign policy thinking under Obama.

Biden is "somebody who has repeatedly supported militarism and imperialism" given also he was "one of the crucial leading advocates of the invasion of Iraq," Greenwald said. At the same time Biden is "a loyal servant of the credit card and banking industry" on the domestic front.

In Today's America, The Wise Person Willfully Suspends Belief

In 2007, then-Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton deemed it necessary to “willfully suspend disbelief” to accept General David Petraeus’ progress report on the Iraq war.

In 2021, it seems necessary for the American people to willfully suspend belief in our government institutions, the media, and their corporate overlords.

The body politic is putrid and lashing out with the most disgusting displays of immorality, deceit, and coercion. Entertainment, education, social media, and the MSM ‘watchdogs of democracy’ are now the defenders, recruiters, and propagandists for this sick, bloated, and festering bureaucracy.

Twenty years ago, I believed most of what came over the nation’s airwaves. Ten years ago, I was becoming quite the skeptic. Today, after years of unrelenting attacks on the President, I don’t believe any of it.

Goodbye Sheldon Adelson

Casino magnate and Israeli patriot multi-billionaire Sheldon Adelson, one of the world’s richest men, died in Las Vegas on January 11th at age 87. He had been suffering from cancer and has been buried at the Mount of Olives Cemetery in Israel. When his body arrived in Israel it was met by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as well as Jonathan Pollard, the most damaging spy in United States history. Tributes to the fallen “hero” poured in from the political class in both the United States and Israel and it has even been reported that President Donald Trump was intending to hoist the American flag at half mast over federal buildings to honor the “great humanitarian philanthropist.” Unfortunately, the flag was already at half mast honoring the death of Capitol Police Force officer Brian Sicknick, who was murdered in the Capitol building last Wednesday.

“On January 20, 2021, in accordance with the Constitution, confirmed by the states and the courts, and certified by Congress, President-elect Biden will be inaugurated and will become our 46th Commander in Chief.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt: “In politics, nothing happens by accident.”

The memorandum marks the preliminary culmination of a development which might well end with the assumption of power by the military in Washington. In order to understand this development, one has to recall the words of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who once said, “In politics, nothing happens by chance. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”

Lincoln Project Co-Founder Steps Down After "Inappropriate" And "Sexually Charged" Texts To "Dozens Of Young Men"

John Weaver, co-founder of the Lincoln Project anti-Trump super-PAC, has stepped down after reports that he sent dozens of young men "inappropriate" sexually charged messages.

At least 2 dozen men have claimed that Weaver, who is married, held job opportunities in the balance while "propositioning [the men] for sex", according to the NY Post. Weaver has said that he saw the exchanges as "consensual mutual conversations".

One man claimed to have had consensual intercourse with Weaver in a hotel - before failing to land the job in question. Other men said that Weaver would DM them on Twitter, complimenting them on their hair or asking about their genitals. Weaver had taken a leave of absence from the Lincoln Project over the summer and confirmed last week that he would not be returning.

CFR Fears 'American Democracy' May Be 'Doomed' By Populism

The Council on Foreign Relations is afraid that "American democracy" (aka rule by unelected oligarchs) may be "doomed" by the populist forces that Trump's presidency has unleashed.

The top article on the CFR's website over the weekend was a piece from Yascha Mounk titled, "After Trump, Is American Democracy Doomed by Populism?"

In the piece, Mounk whined about the U.S. capitol protests, which he called "riots," and lamented the "appeal of populist authoritarianism."

The Unwelcome Return of the Real Purveyors of Violence

With the mainstream media still obsessing about the January 6th “violent coup attempt” at the US Capitol Building, the incoming Biden Administration looks to be chock full of actual purveyors of violent coups. Don’t look to the mainstream media to report on this, however. Some of the same politicians and bureaucrats denouncing the ridiculous farce at the Capitol as if it were the equivalent of 9/11 have been involved for decades in planning and executing real coups overseas. In their real coups, many thousands of civilians have died.

Take returning Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, for example. More than anyone else she is the face of the US-led violent coup against a democratically-elected government in Ukraine in 2014. Nuland not only passed out snacks to the coup leaders, she was caught on a phone call actually plotting the coup right down to who would take power once the smoke cleared.

9 Things Your Civics Teacher Didn’t Tell You About Freedom

I come from a long line of Irish-Americans who settled in the states in the 1950s. We take our freedoms very seriously and we’re more than a little patriotic. We love all things red, white, and blue. As you can imagine, we’ve struggled with the goings-on of late. As conservatives and Patriots, we’ve been shocked at a lot of what we’re seeing.

As I’ve tried to make sense of the political climate, I’ve gone back to those principles my Civics teacher taught me, back at Gramercy High School. I’m afraid Mrs. Haverstock left a few things out.

Here are NINE things I didn’t learn in Civics class, things I wish I’d known before President Trump took office in 2016:
