White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to confirm if reports about Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s departure are true.

The Senate is expected very soon to vote on the Republican tax “reform” bill that passed the House of Representatives two weeks ago. Many fear it’s going to pass.

Time Is Money–Time Magazine Falls To The Koch Brothers (Video)

We are aware of President Donald Trump’s, um…shall we say disdain for the media. Branding reputable news outlets as “fake” is more serious than just juvenile name-calling, though.

But what happens when oligarchy consumes […]

A month ago, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) called the White House an “adult daycare center.” Before that, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Donald Trump a “f***ing moron.” He, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are reportedly so concerned about Trump’s mindset, they’ve formed a “suicide pact” in which they agree if […]

People Are Dying In Yemen As The Mainstream Media Obsesses Over Trump’s Tweets And Roy Moore (Video)

Let me start off by saying I have no problem with the media. I refer to it and quote it every day in these articles.

A Fox News Anchor Gets Ripped To Shreds For Defending Hillary Clinton (Video)

Fox News told the truth this week. And its viewers were not happy. It isn’t usual for the conspiracy theory-laden network to debunk its own spin.
