More On The Benghazi Coverup

Via David Codrea, see this post at Gateway Pundit.  It’s slam full of information, including why he deep state attacked General Michael Flynn.  I always told you it was a hit job. One of the allegations (I take to be true) is that there was weapons trafficking conducted on behalf of John McCain and The Clinton Foundation.  We already knew this, as there was not only weapons but precious gems, oil, money and children being trafficked due to the failed states in North Africa. The only thing I ques...

Joshua Tree National Park to close because Trump's shutdown led to damage

Trump's government shutdown, now on day 17 and counting, has led to the closure of Joshua Tree National Park. The park announced today, Tuesday January 8, that it will temporarily close “effective 8 am on Thursday, January 10, to allow park staff to address sanitation, safety, and resource protection issues in the park that have arisen during the lapse in appropriations.” Officials at the popular California park say some of the iconic desert trees (Yucca brevifolia) and other ancient element...

Trump Campaign Fundraises Off Of Primetime Gov’t Shutdown Speech
