Trending: Science is Settled

Here it is folks. Proof that the tech giants hate conservatives. Google has been systematically targeting conservative websites and they just got caught red-handed.

The President put himself, and his mental faculties on full display for the media during an hour-long meeting with Congressional leaders on the issues of illegal immigration, DACA, and the Wall.

‘This is the president we see every day,’ the official added. ‘He works ridiculously hard, he’s laser-focused on getting results, and he knows how to lead people.’

Senator Rand Paul says the he will not support reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) without greater protection for our citizens.

Since the intention of FISA is to spy on foreigners, we don’t require that the government obey the Constitution. The Fourth Amendment protections of privacy are not extended to foreigners.

Congress agreed to a less-than-constitutional standard as long as the targets were foreigners in foreign lands. Even many privacy advocates can accept this lower standard for foreign intelligence. But few, if any, privacy advocates believe that information vacuumed up without constitutional protections should be used against Americans accused of domestic wrongdoing.

Unfortunately, that’s what we believe is happening now. In the vast dragnet of data files collected on foreigners under Section 702 of FISA, millions of bits of information are also collected on Americans. We don’t know the exact amount because our overlords in the intelligence community won’t tell us.

New York’s socialist mayor is backing a plan to hike taxes in an effort to find more cash to refurbish the city’s subway system. The plan would focus on the wealthy who De Blasio says won’t leave the city because of the tax increases… even though that’s exactly what they’ve done elsewhere.

Roseanne Barr continues to defend her support of Donald Trump and isn’t sure that Oprah Winfrey is the President that this country needs.

After stopping in at the National Championship game in Atlanta, President Trump signed a new law creating a national historic park also in Atlanta, honoring civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr.

A leader of the terrorist organization Hamas has been hospitalized after accidentally shooting himself in the head.

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) is retiring.

The death toll from the California floods continues to rise, at least 15 people have died from recent flooding.

If the election were today, it seems that Oprah Winfrey would defeat President Trump rather handily.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
