Billionaire globalist George Soros has transferred the bulk of his wealth — almost $18 billion — to his Open Society Foundations, a sprawling network of entities and front groups pushing everything from globalism and Big Government to abortion, racial hatred, radical politicians, nationalized police, Hillary Clinton, mass Islamic migration, illegal war, and open borders. Some analysts have suggested that the massive transfer of funds was a scheme to avoid the estate tax. However, the deeply controversial extremist and self-styled “god,” now 87-years old, is also reported to be laying the foundation for his anti-freedom agenda — described by Soros as a “New World Order” that the mass-murdering Communist Chinese regime will “own” — to be perpetuated with his billions long after he meets his Maker.
Newly released FBI documents confirm that ousted FBI Director James Comey “protected Hillary Clinton,” according to a series of tweets by President Trump. The president’s early-morning tweets on Tuesday are in keeping with previous statements he has made about Comey’s protection of Clinton during her e-mail scandal.

With all of the focus on the alleged (yet never demonstrated, much less proved) connections between President Trump and Russia over the past year, the liberal mainstream media have bent over backward to keep the attention off of the demonstrable (and likely soon to be proved) connections between Hillary Clinton and Russia.

A man brutally beaten during the Charlottesville confrontations in August has now been charged with a felony.
In an effort to restore some semblance of justice to the federal government's sprawling “criminal justice” machine, a coalition of U.S. lawmakers including liberty-minded Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are pursuing reforms that would force the feds to prove suspects were willfully committing a crime. With tens of thousands of pages in new “regulations” imposed on America each year just by federal regulatory agencies — many with severe criminal penalties attached — legal experts say virtually every American professional likely commits several federal crimes each day without even realizing it. Under the newly re-introduced “Mens Rea Reform Act,” though, that would all change. The effort has drawn widespread support across the political spectrum, and especially among conservatives concerned about overcriminalization.
On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown revealed that California treats misuse of transgender pronouns more seriously than intentionally inflicting an individual with HIV, by signing into law a bill that reduces from a felony to a misdemeanor the penalty of knowingly exposing partners to HIV.
