Russian Collusion? Look to Joe Biden

While President Donald Trump has been cleared of charges of Russian collusion, there is a better case of Russian collusion to be made against another U.S. leader—former Vice President Joe Biden. An investigation into Biden’s Russian ties is long overdue and urgent, as he is likely to declare his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination sometime soon.

While widely regarded as the moderate face of the Democratic Party, that perception might change quickly if more people were aware of his past work to further the interests of the former Soviet Union and Russia.

Biden visited the Soviet Union several times during his early Senate career and was well known to Soviet leaders. The appalling Soviet treatment of dissidents was a big issue at the time, and then-Sen. Biden would sometimes express concern at their plight.

The Tea Party is Back!

President Trump has our economy booming.  Unemployment claims are at an unprecedented 50-year-low.  There are more jobs available than there are workers to fill them.

Yet every Democrat presidential candidate is on a mad dash to socialism.  If a Democrat is elected president in 2020, we will be thrust back to the depressing days of Obama’s failed economy: record-high numbers of Americans on food stamps, unemployment, and disability.  Democrats are like drug-dealers seeking to insidiously addict Americans to government dependency solely to control their lives, behavior, and voting loyalty.

From the beginning of the Tea Party movement, I traveled the country on numerous national Tea Party bus tours, speaking and performing my song, “American Tea Party Anthem,” at over 500 Tea Party rallies nationwide.

Trapper’s Quote Of The Week

By: Trapper Pettit

The future is a culmination of past mistakes repeated more times than one can count. The actor’s change, events vary, the money trail always leads to London and New York, but the historical replications with their parallel consistency remain the same.

Al Sisi’s Presidential Ambitions Conflict With Egypt’s Constitution

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

By virtue of its own authority every dictatorial power — whether of the military, religious or national — creates for the country a vital, intellectual space or atmosphere where propaganda can flourish. This is the means to enact authoritarian projects for the purpose of tightening a grip on society and to justify repressive actions. One such project is Al Sisi’s future presidential ambitions.

Past Egyptian regimes (as well as the present one) self-promote through public boasting and seek praise for their achievements by deluding the public. One case in point is Al Sisi’s Suez Canal mega-project. Egyptians are still waiting to see its benefits. For the regime to control the narrative, it will pre-empt the opposition in staged “democratic” debates on TV forums. The actors, host, and guests, are well-versed in satisfying the regime’s desired outcomes.

An army of writers, journalists, and broadcasters – servants of the regime — are always ready to serve the next authoritarian project when it comes along. Today’s mission of the Egyptian regime is to convince the public that President Al Sisi, who is in the middle of his second and final four-year term, needs more time in office than the current constitution allows. Al Sisi must continue. He has made promises to the people he needs to fulfill.
