President Obama is engaged in acts that may go against the Logan Act which prohibits Americans from committing treason by acting with other governments against the US. A summary of the Logan Act follows: The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 ) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization. Congress established the Logan Act in 1799, less than one year after passage of the Alien and
Oh my he broke a law. One of many. This one is another resume enhancement. The more laws he breaks the more invinceable and untouchable he becomes. You think he´s worried? He can make the cover of Mad Magazine and be Alfred B. Obummer and ask "What, me worry?" Hahahaha!!!!! Laws don´t apply to him! He´s a democrat! If any federal prosecutor tried to charge him, they would be character assassinated 24 hours a day by the media and the left.
Barack is acting like the low class person he has always been. Even Dollar Bill Clinton didn´t conduct such seditious behavior after he slimed his way out of the White House. It is the tradition of former presidents to shut up. But the Logan Act is empty-no one has ever been prosecuted under it, as far as I know.
Implicit trust should be given neither to politicians, nor journalists.
Hasn´t the Logan Act survived First Amendment challenges to its constitutionality, already?
Little matter, when the Left intend to crush the Right through all means available, legal and illegal, moral and immoral. BLM, OWS, and Antifa have been test runs. When it happens for real, the effort won´t be half-assed, short-lived, or merciful. And when people start getting killed in numbers across the country, I´m not sure we´ll be asking about what foreign leader Obama met with that week (except in attempts to locate his moving command center).
Hubris finally catching up with this empty suit?? Back down to earth: who is going to arrest him? Has anyone seen or heard of Session making a comment about this strange ´counsel´ that keeps expanding like a fat Soviet of the old days? Mueller going to suggest we arrest the Obamination? Who is going to arrest this traitor from Kenya???
There has never been a prosecution under the Logan Act, but Obama would be a good test case. He´s always been a subversive who has hated the USA and has worked to undermine us in every way: strategically, economically, and morally. No jury with a Democrat would convict, but it would serve this Domestic Enemy right to have to defend his actions in court. He does belong in Guantanamo.
Amidst the liberal media’s undying support for Jimmy Kimmel’s emotion-driven push to socialize health care, conservative icon and podcast host Ben Shapiro demolished Kimmel’s fact-free, liberal claims on his Wednesday show. “Because of the merge of entertainment and politics, we’ve basically said that those hearts are the fullest, we’re just going to grant that their brains are also fullest. I don’t think that that’s necessarily true,” Shapiro argued at one point in the 20-minute-plus takedown. (Video) Shapiro brought up the fact that, like Kimmel’s son, his daughter needed heart surgery so she was treated by the same doctor
he University of California Berkeley is taking a proactive measure in helping its students understand the concept of "freedom of speech," by providing them a nifty training website that explains exactly why the Constitution is important, and helps them understand why they don´t need to riot when someone they disagree with speaks on campus. The site, called "Berkeley Free Speech," is a project of the UC Berkeley Office of Communications and Public Affairs, naturally, since a burning campus can quickly tank even a stellar marketing strategy. The site contains "links to articles about free speech, campus policies on hosting
CIA Agent. Fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. Apparent anti-Semite. Valerie Plame is many things. The left-wing darling just tweeted an article accusing Jews of starting American wars. After the predictable blowback, Plame first encouraged her audience "to put aside your biases" and read the article before admitting that she "didn´t do my homework on the platform." (Tweet) An especially embarrassing gaffe for a veteran intelligence analyst, the UNZ.com article in question asserted, among other things, that Jews "own the media," that Jewish people should wear labels while on national television, and that their beliefs are as
NEW YORK– President Trump took executive action on Thursday to crack down on individuals, banks, and businesses that are involved in trade with North Korea, as his administration seeks to further pressure Pyongyang into abandoning its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. "Foreign banks will face a clear choice: do business with the United States or facilitate trade with the lawless regime in North Korea," Trump said during a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in. "It is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal, rogue regime." (Video) Trump said
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who previously has called for the impeachment of Donald Trump, on Thursday told a Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall on Civil Rights that she expects other members of the black community to back her up: “Don´t come here and tell me, ‘Maxine, you keep on doing what you do.’ But when you gonna give me some support?” she asked. “How many of you in your organizations have said, ´Impeach 45´ ?” Waters urged the crowd not to get hung up on what law to invoke in the impeachment process: Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictates
Touching video shows the moment a father who lost everything in Hurricane Harvey breaks down when his five-year-old son is given a new Woody doll after his beloved toy was destroyed. Sports photographer Michael Orta´s Port Arthur house was destroyed after it was filled with four feet of stagnant flood water. He found his son´s precious Woody doll floating in the water. (Video/Photo) Even though Orta and his son Maddox lost everything in Harvey, the pair went to help others by unloading a donation truck. ´We´re still blessed because everyone´s still alive and we have family,´ Orta said. ´But when
Beijing is quickly recognizing they have painted themselves into an economic corner. Beijing enables the DPRK. President Trump specifically targets this reality as the solution to North Korea’s aggression: ¹Beijing tells DPRK to do stupid thing. 'DPRK does stupid thing. ³Trump hits Xi Jinping with economic punishment for stupid thing. In an effort to keep the panda mask as the primary focus of the international (investment) community; and facing another set of financial sanctions by President Trump and Secretary Mnuchin; and after President Trump explains to Xi Jinping that unrelenting economic pressure will only get worse; Beijing
The Washington Post reports that, although President Donald Trump and his staff were hesitant to campaign in Alabama for establishment-friendly Luther Strange, Swamp Republicans forced the president’s hand — fearing that a victory for Judge Roy Moore would motivate several allies to retire from the Senate rather than face Breitbart-backed challengers in 2018. From the Washington Post: White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who has tried to control what information Trump receives about the Alabama race, was initially wary of the president appearing with a senator who might lose. He preferred Trump spend his time on
Former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer granted an interview to Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple, which naturally focused on Wemple’s loathing of Team Trump’s media-bashing – which usually ignores Team Media’s relentless Trump-bashing. Wemple began with how Spicer´s apparently too radioactive for a cable-news pundit gig, as Obama´s spokesmen Jay Carney and Josh Earnest (not to mention "bimbo-erupting" Clinton aide George Stephanopoulos) did immediately: "Spicer spent months berating White House correspondents, sticking up for a president who’d called certain media outlets ´the enemy of
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel slammed Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade and other Republicans on Wednesday night for their criticism of his commentary on the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill. Kimmel, whose son was born with a congenital heart disease, has been an outspoken critic of the Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare, and most recently, of the bill proposed by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R., L.A.) because he believes it doesn´t protect people with pre-existing conditions like his son. The late night host took Cassidy to task during his show Tuesday night for what he said is
President Trump received glowing praise Thursday from Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani for the new war strategy, which was credited for turning around the 16-year war against Taliban militants and other radical Islamic terrorists. “It is a difference of day and night,” Mr. Ghani said at a meeting with Mr. Trump. “The cloud of uncertainty has been lifted, but equally important is your commitment to a political solution at the end of this process.” Mr. Trump announced the new strategy a month ago. It included setting long-term goals for the war effort, sending more U.S. troops to train and assist the Afghan military and

The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the ACE Hardware Store located in the 2600 block of State Hwy. 35.

Hillary Clinton compared herself to Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere on Tuesday, saying that she is “Paula Revere” sounding the alarm on Russian active measures during the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) In her interview, Clinton suggested that she has led the push to call out the Russian government and Russian president Vladimir Putin about their involvement in the U.S. election. “I am saying as clearly as I can — I feel like I’m a bit of a, you know, Paula Revere — I’m trying to sound the alarm about this,” Clinton said to a smattering of laughter and applause. Clinton’s
If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
U2 frontman Bono unloaded on President Donald Trump in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday, revealing that his Irish rock band’s new album will take on the “bully on the bully pulpit” because “silence is not an option.” In January, U2 founding guitarist The Edge revealed that “Songs of Experience,” the band’s follow-up to its platinum-selling 2014 album “Songs of Innocence,” was delayed because of Trump’s election. Now Bono says “there’s a couple of reasons why we delayed Songs of Experience. One personal, one political.” “The world around us was certainly changing out of all recognition, we nearly lost the
Armed FBI agenst with guns drawn busted into Paul Manafort’s home as Manafort and his wife lay in bed. The FBI agents insisted on searching Kathleen Manafort for weapons — after they barged into her home. This is Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ FBI. Sessions needs to go now. (Tweet) The New York Post reported: Gun-wielding FBI agents busted into Paul Manafort’s home as he was asleep in bed and even searched his wife for weapons, it was revealed Tuesday. Agents took an unusually tough approach in executing a search warrant, dealing with potential financial crimes by President Trump’s former campaign chief,
Hillary Clinton said First Lady Melania Trump isn’t doing enough to tackle cyberbullying. “No, no and, look, I don´t think anybody is doing enough on cyberbullying,” Clinton told Mic when asked if she thought Trump had enforced her platform. Trump condemned cyberbullying in her first United Nations speech in New York City on Wednesday. “We must come together for the good of our children,” she said. “Therefore, we must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership, which can only be taught by example.”
A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents. In a post written Tuesday night in the Facebook group
