Poll: 7-in-10 Voters Believe in ‘America First’ Agenda Ahead of 2020 Election

Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, the overwhelming majority of likely voters say they believe in the doctrine of “America First” when it comes to national public policy, a new poll reveals.

A poll by Selzer and Company/Grinnell College finds that the vast majority of American adults say they are America First voters, while less than 20 percent identify as socialists.

Overall, about seven-in-ten — or 70 percent — of likely voters say they are believers in America First — the nationalist-populist doctrine that guides President Trump’s agenda on immigration, trade, healthcare, and foreign policy, among others.

Meanwhile, only about 19 percent of likely voters said they would describe themselves as socialists, making the term the most unliked label for Americans. Instead, more Americans describe themselves as politically incorrect, feminists, gun enthusiasts, proud Americans, and progressives than they do socialists.


Democrats Draft Plan to Import Huge Numbers of ‘Climate Refugees’

Democrat legislators have drafted a bill to import at least 50,000 “climate refugees” per year despite the damaging impact on Americans’ wages and rents.

“America will continue to stand tall as a safe haven for immigrants,” declared Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY), who was born in Puerto Rico and chairs the House Committee on Small Business. She said:
Despite this Administration’s efforts to strip the world’s most vulnerable populations of refuge … this legislation will not only reaffirm our nation’s longstanding role as a home to those fleeing conflict and disasters, but it will also update it to reflect changes to our world brought on by a changing climate.
The bill is titled the “Climate Displaced Persons Act,” and it offers green cards to “climate-displaced persons … [who] are individuals who have been forcibly displaced by climate change or climate-induced disruptions, such as sea-level rise, glacial outburst floods, desertification or fires … there could be as many as 200 million CDPs by 2050 globally,” said a statement from Velázquez‘s office.


Snyder: What In The World Is The Federal Reserve Thinking???

You don’t use up all of your ammunition before the battle even begins.

The U.S. economy has not even officially entered recession territory yet, although many experts are definitely anticipating one in 2020. When that recession arrives, the Federal Reserve is going to want as much ammunition to fight it as possible. So I was horrified to learn that the Federal Reserve announced on Wednesday that interest rates are being slashed once again. We have now had three interest rate cuts in 2019 as the Federal Reserve desperately attempts to revive the stalling U.S. economy. But what are they going to do during the next recession when they have already pushed interest rates all the way to the floor and they can’t push them any lower?

In addition, in recent days the Federal Reserve has decided to absolutely flood the financial system with new money in a desperate attempt to stabilize the repo market. In essence, the Federal Reserve has launched a massive new round of quantitative easing even before a major crisis has erupted on Wall Street. I can understand trying to be proactive, but in reality quantitative easing is an extreme emergency measure that should only be used in the most desperate of situations. If the Fed is creating this much new money now, what are they going to do once things really get bad? Are we destined to become the next Venezuela?

Biological male transgenders are about to take over female roles in Hollywood, and the viewing audience must pretend they’re all women

The LGBTQP lobby is outraged that transgenders are not getting as many acting roles on Broadway as they would prefer, so it is now calling on the performance industry to change its ways and start embracing transgenders just as they would normal actors.

An omen of what is soon to come for Hollywood, a stage actors’ union known as Equity has issued a public plea to casting directors everywhere asking them to consider hiring more transgender performers to play characters that aren’t transgender, which will help to give transgenders more acting work.

Even though the average American would probably opt for a root canal over having to watch biological males pretending to be “females” prance around on stage as “women,” Equity believes that transgenders should simply be handed these acting roles whenever they demand them, regardless – you know, because of “equality.”


Massive boulder nicknamed 'wizard rock,' weighing 1 ton mysteriously taken from National Park

In a baffling act of thievery, a 1-ton boulder was somehow snatched from the side of a highway in Arizona's Prescott National Forest about two weeks ago. Now, forest officials are asking the public for help to recover the hefty loot.

The stately black boulder, commonly called "Wizard Rock" by locals, was a special staple of the community, said Prescott National Forest in a news release.

"It's unfortunate when we lose a treasure such as the Wizard Rock," said Sarah Clawson, district ranger for the Bradshaw Ranger District, in a statement. "Our hope is that it will be returned to us, and these recent recurring events will become an educational opportunity."


Eighth-grader’s family complained of bullying days before fatal assault, legal claim states

On a Friday in mid-September, Diego Stolz’s adult cousin accompanied him to a meeting with the assistant principal at Landmark Middle School in Moreno Valley.

The eighth-grader had been repeatedly targeted by bullies. The day before, one of them had punched him in the chest and threatened that more violence was coming.

Stolz was scared.

The assistant principal, Kamilah O’Connor, assured him that the bullies would be suspended for three days, starting Monday, and told him he could miss the remainder of the school day.

But when the 13-year-old returned to classes after the weekend, the boys were still there.


Fitton: AP Reporters Pushed FBI to Prosecute Manafort

The Associated Press, founded in 1846 as a cooperative association of newspapers, has enjoyed a reputation for independence and fairness over the years. Lately, however, it has come under criticism for what some see as a left/liberal bias.

Certainly, what we have just learned about its dealings with anti-Trump partisans in the Justice Department does nothing to improve our perception of the news service.

We have released two sets of heavily redacted FBI documents – 28 pages and 38 pages –about an April 11, 2017, “off-the-record” meeting set up by then-Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section Andrew Weissmann.

The meeting included representatives of the DOJ, the FBI and the Associated Press in which AP reporters provided information on former Trump Campaign Director Paul Manafort, including the numeric code to Manafort’s storage locker.


NASA admits that climate change occurs because of changes in Earth’s solar orbit, and NOT because of SUVs and fossil fuels

For more than 60 years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has known that the changes occurring to planetary weather patterns are completely natural and normal. But the space agency, for whatever reason, has chosen to let the man-made global warming hoax persist and spread, to the detriment of human freedom.

It was the year 1958, to be precise, when NASA first observed that changes in the solar orbit of the earth, along with alterations to the earth’s axial tilt, are both responsible for what climate scientists today have dubbed as “warming” (or “cooling,” depending on their agenda). In no way, shape, or form are humans warming or cooling the planet by driving SUVs or eating beef, in other words.

But NASA has thus far failed to set the record straight, and has instead chosen to sit silently back and watch as liberals freak out about the world supposedly ending in 12 years because of too much livestock, or too many plastic straws.


Jerry Brown Blames Trump, Republicans for California Fires: ‘The Blood Is on Your Soul’

Former California Governor Jerry Brown told Congress on Tuesday that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party were responsible for the ongoing California fires because of their opposition to drastic climate change policies.

“California’s burning while the deniers make a joke out of the standards that protect us all,” Brown told the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday, as quoted by the San Francisco Chronicle. “The blood is on your soul here and I hope you wake up. Because this is not politics, this is life, this is morality. … This is real.”

Brown was testifying against efforts by the Trump administration to rescind California’s waiver that previously allowed it to set its own emissions standards for vehicles — effectively giving the state control of the entire auto industry. The administration argues that California’s policy is actually worse for the environment because higher standards make new cars — which are more energy-efficient than old cars — more difficult for consumers to buy.


Anti-Trump Whistleblower’s Identity Revealed – Worked for Susan Rice, Obama, Also Helped Initiate the Russia Collusion Hoax Investigation!

The anti-Trump whistleblower behind the Ukraine witch hunt has likely been exposed.

According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, one person’s name keeps coming up in the impeachment hearings that fits the description of the whistleblower — Eric Ciaramella.

We have reported on Ciaramella previously at The Gateway Pundit.

33-year-old Ciaramella is a registered Democrat, worked for Obama, worked for Biden, worked for CIA Director John Brennan, he’s a vocal critic of Trump and he helped initiate the ‘Russia collusion’ hoax investigation!

Ciaramella’s identity was an open secret in the DC swamp, says Paul Sperry.


James Rickards: "Donald Trump is a Genius"

Yes, Virginia, There Is A Deep State And It's Feeding The Anti-POTUS Mob

The prepared statement of the latest UkraineGate whistle-blower is well worth the read. It tells you all you need to know about why the Deep State apparatchiks are coming out of the woodwork in a massive assault on America's duly elected president.
  • They are deathly afraid Trump will begin to dismantle a far-flung Empire which has
  • ...wreaked havoc around the world,
  • ...bled America's fiscal accounts dry, and
  • ...fostered unspeakable prosperity among the beltway's legions of empire-supporting agencies, contractors, think tanks, foreign lobbies, NGO's and K-street racketeers.
Whether out of common sense, naiveté or just contrariness, the Donald has dared to question and disrupt the Empire's core policy on the Ukraine/Russia file. And that's apparently exactly why the whistleblower de jour, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, wrote his now ballyhooed memos.

He feared that Trump's appropriate desire to get to the bottom of the well-documented Ukrainian involvement in the Obama Administration's illegal spying on his 2016 presidential campaign would undermine the bipartisan consensus on Capitol Hill for Washington's utterly wrong-headed Ukraine policy.

Trump Awards Medal Of Bravery To Chewbacca For Heroic Deeds During Battle Of Yavin

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trump has awarded galactic hero Chewbacca his long-awaited Medal of Bravery for his performance in the Battle of Yavin.

The Wookiee had been snubbed by other presidents, who turned him down for the award despite his being nominated numerous times.

"AMERICAN HERO!" Trump tweeted along with a pic allegedly showing the ceremony. "BEST WALKING CARPET MAYBE EVER!!!"

But not so fast, said some fact-checkers.

Vaxxed2 documentary producers release devastating information about America’s hidden vaccine injury epidemic

The producers of Vaxxed2 — the new vaccine truth documentary highlighted at — joined me at the InfoWars studios for an exclusive interview about the launch of this powerful film that’s set to blow the lid on the epidemic of vaccine injuries that are killing and maiming children across America (and around the world).

The full interview, shown below via, is a powerful must-see discussion about vaccines and the “war zone” of mass death they’re unleashing across America.

Children are being hospitalized, maimed and killed because of dangerous ingredients that are deliberately formulated into vaccines. And no one is allowed to talk about it.

The vaccine industry preys on children, deceives the public, aggressively hypes every outbreak (even the ones caused by vaccines) and pressures the tech giants to censor any truth about the dangers of vaccine ingredients. This is an industry dominated by a twisted combination of pure evil and mad science.


Troopers Arrest Two In Connection with AT and T Scheme-Sussex County

Sussex County– The Delaware State Police have arrested two suspects in connection with AT&T schemes regarding fraudulent package retrieval.
The Delaware State Police began investigating a series of fraud cases in October, 2019 in which suspects created fraudulent cellular phone accounts by stealing a persons identity, then have new cellular phones shipped to an address via FedEx/UPS. The suspects would be provided with a tracking number, then they responded to the location, obtained the package and took the cellular phones.
On October 29, 2019 at approximately 2:23 p.m., while Troopers were investigating one of these thefts complaints on Shadow Grove, Frankford, they were given a suspect vehicle description, a red Toyota Camry with New York registration.  The vehicle was subsequently observed in the area and a traffic stop was initiated.   Contact was made with the occupants in the vehicle, 23-year-old Jeison Canderlario of New York, NY and 23-year-old Felix Villa-Candelario of Bronx, NY.  Two new-in-box AT&T Samsung cellular phones were immediately observed inside the vehicle.   The suspects were taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 4.  A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle and a total of 10 AT&T Galaxy Note 10+’s were recovered.
Both suspects were charged with the following:
  • Receiving Stolen Property Value Over $1500
  • Conspiracy Second Degree
  • Conspiracy 3rd Degree (2 counts)
  • Criminal Trespass Third Degree (5 counts)
Jeison Canderlario and Felix Villa Candelario were arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $2505.00 secured bond.

Harris Statement on Impeachment Vote

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) released the following statement regarding the vote held today in the House of Representatives on H. Res. 660, to continue the hearings on the impeachment of President Trump.

Rep. Andy Harris made the following statement:
“I am certainly not voting to justify the continuation of Soviet-style secret hearings orchestrated behind closed doors to impeach the President. This is a sham – a fig leaf that fails to cover up an illegitimate hyper-partisan inquiry.”
For media inquiries, please contact Congressman Harris’ Washington, DC office at 202-225-5311, or contact John Dutton at

Fire coverage yanked from 350,000 residents in response to PG&E power blackouts and ‘fire risk’

Why Americans continue to elect Democrats, whose policies are tyrannical and economically destructive, is a mystery.

That is especially the case in California, which is a case study in authoritarianism when one political party possesses a super majority.

Recently, California – an arid state despite the fact that it has a large Pacific coastline – suffered through several very destructive, deadly wildfires that many experts blamed on the Democrats’ goofy, nonsensical environmental policies.

In particular, environmental policies that prevent energy companies from clear-cutting dead brush and trees away from power lines.

“California has a lot of public land, federal land and state land, and there are strict restrictions on a lot of that regarding logging and even removal of dead and diseased trees,” notes Bonner Cohen, a senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research. “You have tinderboxes brought to you courtesy of either the federal government, or the state government, or – tragically in some cases – both.”

But rationality isn’t something that guides Democratic environmental policy-making in California. As such, the state’s residents suffer.


BREAKING: House approves impeachment inquiry rules after fiery floor debate

A sharply divided House voted Thursday to approve a resolution setting "ground rules" for the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, putting lawmakers on record over the contentious process while setting the stage for proceedings to move into the public eye after weeks of closed-door depositions.

The measure passed largely along party lines, 232-196. Two Democrats defected on the vote.

The first formal floor vote in relation to the impeachment probe announced a month ago by Speaker Nancy Pelosi followed a fierce debate in the chamber, where Republicans accused Democrats of launching a de facto "coup" against the president in a "pre-ordained" bid to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

Concealed Permit Holder Kills Alleged Armed Robber in Restaurant

A concealed carry permit holder shot and killed an alleged armed robber in a Highland Park, Michigan, restaurant.

WXYZ reports the suspect allegedly “came inside the restaurant with the intent to rob the place.”

ClickonDetroit reports that the owner bought time by initially complying with the suspect’s demands, handing over cash. When the suspect turned his attention to the bartender, allegedly intending to rob her too, the restaurant owner opened fire.

The owner “was armed with a .40-caliber Glock pistol” and he “emptied the magazine” while engaging the suspect.


Ocasio-Cortez dings 'predominantly white' areas for hurricanes that killed minorities

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put a racial spin Wednesday on climate change and hurricanes, attributing emissions from “predominantly white” corporations and communities for juicing recent storms that cost “predominantly black and brown lives” in Louisiana and Puerto Rico.

Even as House Republicans argued that cheap electricity from fossil fuels has helped lift more than a billion people out of poverty around the world, the New York Democrat asked a witness about whether “the Global South and communities of color” bear the brunt of climate “havoc.”

“[T]he people that are producing climate change, the folks that are responsible for the largest amount of emissions, or communities, or corporations, they tend to be predominantly white, correct?” she asked at a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on civil rights and civil liberties.


GOP lawmakers request roll call vote on impeachment resolution

A group of House Republicans is calling on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to have members cast their votes vocally instead of electronically on a resolution on impeachment procedures slated to come to the floor on Thursday.

In a letter sent to Pelosi on Wednesday — led by Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) and signed by 25 GOP lawmakers — the members said that while they disagree with Democrats' position on impeachment, it will be "one of the most serious and profound votes any of us will ever cast."

"As you know, there is no requirement for a roll call vote in the House to be conducted by electronic device and tabulation. As you also know, a vote conducted by electronic device shields Members from having to stand before their colleagues, their constituents, and the world to announce their decision on such a momentous matter in their own voice," they wrote.


NBA star: 'Seems like' Ilhan Omar is on the Turkish payroll

Enes Kanter, who plays for the Boston Celtics, had some harsh criticism for Rep. Ilhan Omar after the lawmaker refused to vote in favor of economic sanctions on Turkey.

"What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!" Kanter said Wednesday night on Twitter.

Omar voted "present" on the resolution and was the only Democrat who did not support the measure to place sanctions on Turkey over its killing of Kurdish forces.

Chuck DeVore: California wildfires are 'one of the most preventable tragedies in human history'

The wildfires ravaging California are "one of the most preventable tragedies in human history," according to a former California state assemblyman.

"We’ve seen this coming for a long time. We have half the people working in California today that used to work in the logging industry because environmentalists and their political enablers have shut down the timber industry in California and when you don’t log the timber, eventually, it’s gotta burn,” Chuck DeVore said on “Fox & Friends” after pointing out that Gov. Gavin Newsom has blamed "capitalism, global warming," and the Pacific Gas & Electric company.

DeVore's comments came after Newsom declared a statewide emergency Sunday after multiple wildfires prompted the evacuation of nearly 200,000 people from their homes. Mandatory evacuations were ordered Wednesday morning in Southern California as a rapidly moving wildfire ignited and burned in Simi Valley, near the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.


Trump administration expands program to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico

The Trump administration this week added a new location to a Department of Homeland Security program that turns away asylum seekers who arrive at official crossing points at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) was implemented Monday in a new location — Eagle Pass, Texas — where Central American families, as well as Congolese, Angolans, and Haitians, have constituted the largest groups of asylum seekers arriving over the past six months.

It is the sixth crossing point, or port of entry, on the southern border where DHS has opted to turn away people since implementing its “Remain in Mexico” policy in January. Other border crossings already returning migrants to Mexico are San Diego, California; Calexico, California; El Paso, Texas; Laredo, Texas; and Brownsville, Texas.


Republicans blast impeachment resolution as 'Soviet-style' process

As Democrats move to make impeachment proceedings public, Republicans slammed the new process House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put forth, saying nothing in the new protocols has changed the restrictive and secretive nature of the proceedings.

The Washington Examiner reported that Republicans say the new process further restricts particular members of their conference from asking questions during hearings.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise blasted the proposal Tuesday night.

“The Soviet-style process that Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff have been conducting behind closed doors for weeks now has been rotten to the core. We’ve been highly critical of the fact that it completely denies due process to Republican members of Congress, as well as to the White House,” Scalise told reporters.


Joe Biden, son excluded from Democrats' Ukraine probe

President Trump’s defenders in Congress increasingly point to the importance of investigating corruption in Ukraine allegedly involving former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son Hunter, which is the centerpiece of the impeachment inquiry.

While absent from House Democrats’ impeachment probe, questions persist about Hunter Biden’s high-paying job on a Ukraine natural-gas company while his father was the point man for the Obama White House in Ukraine, a country notorious for corruption, especially in the energy industry.

“I don’t see how you can litigate the allegations against the president without litigating the allegations against Hunter Biden. They are inextricably linked,” Sen. John N. Kennedy, Louisiana Republican, told The Washington Times.

Hunter Biden picked up about $850,000 while serving on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukraine natural gas company, despite having no experience in that field. Hunter also profited in China, where his father was spearheading U.S. foreign policy, inking a $1.5 billion deal with an investment firm connected to the government in Beijing.

And the elder Mr. Biden famously bragged last year that he pushed Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, a move critics say aimed to stop an investigation of Burisma, which the prosecutor has said he was investigating at the time.

Democrats poo-poo allegations of wrongdoing by the Bidens.


Federal appeals court delays Mueller's grand jury material disclosure to House Dems

A federal appeals court put on hold a lower court order that had mandated the Justice Department turn over grand jury material from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe to aid House Democrats in their impeachment inquiry.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia granted the Justice Department’s request to delay any disclosure of documents as the administration appealed last week’s ruling which had said the Justice Department must turn over the material by Wednesday.

The House Democrats sought documents without redactions, exhibits from the report and any testimony related to the president’s knowledge of Russia’s attempted interference with the 2016 election, including any knowledge of crimes committed by his campaign officials.

Administration lawyers have pushed back against the subpoena for the information sought specifically by the House Judiciary Committee.

Judge Beryl A. Howell, an Obama appointee, said last week it was fair for the Democrats to have all relevant material to the special counsel’s probe into the Trump campaign and alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election for their impeachment inquiry.


Washington Nationals Win World Series

The Washington Nationals clinched their first ever World Series title Wednesday night, defeating the Houston Astros 6-2 in game 7 of the World Series.

It was a long journey for the Nationals, who lost their top star Bryce Harper in the off-season, but they were a team of destiny and got the job done.

This was also the first time in World Series history that the road team won all seven games. The Nationals won all four games in Houston, while the Astros won three straight games in the nation’s capital destroying the home team in games four and five.
