Bernie Comes to Ann Coulter’s Defense Over UC Berkeley Speech

2 hours 23 min ago

Conservative firebrand author Ann Coulter was set to speak at the University of California in Berkeley this week, sponsored by a Republican student group on campus. Leading up to the date, numerous threats of violence were received and threats of a riot caused the university to cancel the event citing public safety concerns. Coulter is […]

Trump Sanctuary City Plans Thwarted by Obama Judge

6 hours 42 min ago

President Trump’s fight with the federal judiciary continues as his most recent push to withhold federal funding from cities which proudly fly under the banner of “sanctuary cities” has met resistance in a California courtroom. The idea was originally hatched by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to use the withholding of federal money as a means […]

Government Shutdown Looms Over Border Wall Funding

Tue, 04/25/2017 - 14:54

There are fears of a government shutdown in days if Democrats in Congress and the President cannot agree on some sort of deal over the President’s demand for the inclusion of border wall funding in the upcoming spending bill. As of today, the President says he’s confident they can avert the shutdown, but the issue […]

Trump and Obama Both Have Hand in French Election

Tue, 04/25/2017 - 12:03

It’s ironic that, at a time when we are investigating Russian meddling in our election, both of our last two presidents openly meddled in France’s election, this past Sunday. Have we ever interfered with a foreign election before? Do we now have the moral right to criticize Russia for its activities? Donald Trump and Marine […]

Dem Shoots for Upset in Montana’s At-Large Special Election

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 18:05

Tomorrow’s the big day, although you probably haven’t heard. It’s another special election, in which Democrats hope to embarrass Donald Trump with an unlikely win. First, they starved their candidate in Kansas—and lost. Then, they downed their candidate with funds in Georgia—and lost again. Now, all eyes are turning to Nebraska (is there a redder […]

Poll: Trump Still Beats Hillary According to 2016 Voters

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 12:44

Much is being made of President Trump’s lagging approval numbers, which remain historically low, but the narrative being sold with those numbers doesn’t tell the whole story. In a recent survey meant to gauge public opinion coming up on the first 100 days of Trump’s tenure, the question was asked whether voters would change their […]

Nearing 100-Day Mark, Trump Approval Remains Low

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 12:25

The first 100 days of the Trump administration will be marked on April 29th, which is 100 days since the inauguration back on January 20th. The past three months have seen both successes and failures for the newly minted president, and the man himself is already getting ahead of the narrative, blaming the media for […]

Fox Finally Fires “The Factor”–O’Really?

Thu, 04/20/2017 - 13:19

“Fox News has officially cut ties with Bill O’Reilly. Through the network’s parent company 21st Century Fox, the Murdochs issued a statement on Wednesday afternoon: ‘After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.’” That’s from […]

Trump Brags About “Armada” Heading to North Korea

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 17:14

Back in World War II, they had a saying, “Loose Lips Sink Ships.” What it meant was that innocent talk of what people might have learned from soldiers might also be heard by the enemy, putting those very soldiers (or sailors) in danger. These days, “loose lips” sink politicians. The latest example is Donald Trump’s […]

Georgia 6th CD: Dems Lose Again

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 12:10

Democrats are celebrating a “moral victory.” Yeah. That and five bucks will get you a cup of coffee. John Ossoff, who doesn’t even live in Georgia’s Sixth House District, got more votes than anyone else. After pouring over $8 million of outsider money into the run. Against eleven (count ‘em, 11) Republicans. The New York […]

Will We Ever See Trump’s Tax Returns?

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 12:36

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump first claimed he wanted to release his tax returns, and planned to do so before the vote last November. Then, shortly after making that vow, he reversed course and said he couldn’t release his returns because they were under routine audit. As the IRS and others have made clear, […]

Georgia’s 6th Congressional District: The Election About Nothing

Mon, 04/17/2017 - 13:24

We have another special election tomorrow, and the spinmeisters have been hard at work all weekend. Is a special election in Georgia really going to tell us what will happen in 2018? All of the special elections this year are “safe” Republican districts. Otherwise, Trump would not have named the sitting congressman to his administration. […]

Report: North Korean Missile Launch Fails, Standoff Continues

Sun, 04/16/2017 - 01:13

The threat from North Korea to launch another underground nuclear weapons test seems to have fizzled on the launch pad, according to reports from the region. South Korea, which monitors their hostile northern neighbor closely, first reported the failure earlier this evening. Report from the New York Times: North Korea launched a ballistic missile Sunday […]

Professor Who Predicted Trump Win Now Predicts Impeachment

Fri, 04/14/2017 - 13:00

Last year, when Donald Trump’s approval ratings were even lower than they are now, one, lone voice said that Trump would likely win the election, based on his thirteen criteria. People gave him such a hard time that he back-pedaled, saying it’s possible that that year might be an anomaly, since it was weird in […]

Is Trump Building a ‘Deportation Force?’

Thu, 04/13/2017 - 14:40

If you read anything about the recent uptick in immigration enforcement, many media outlets are referring to the build-out as a “deportation force.” The most recent stats say that illegal border crossings are down, and the Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, says it will step-up prosecutions and deportations of criminal aliens. The […]

Fears of ‘World War 3’ as U.S. Takes on North Korea

Wed, 04/12/2017 - 19:06

We’ve entered a strange portion of President Trump’s first 100 days. The U.S. missile strike in Syria and the current posturing toward North Korea’s threats of nuclear war are a departure from how the Obama administration handled these issues for the past eight years. As a result, many Americans are scared as to how this […]

Kansas Special Election Coverage: 4th Congressional District

Tue, 04/11/2017 - 13:41

There is a special election today in the Fourth Congressional District of Kansas to fill the seat vacated by Mike Pompeo, the man tapped to head the CIA by Donald Trump. As a result, Pompeo’s seat must be filled and the battle is raging in this deep-red conservative district where it may come down to […]

Syrian Gas Attack Bump’s Trump’s Approval Ratings

Tue, 04/11/2017 - 12:36

Elsewhere, I have been saying that Trump’s low approval numbers are temporary. Americans hate inaction. All Trump has to do is a few dramatic actions to pump up his numbers. In one week, we attacked a foreign country, without Congressional approval; and Congress threw out the rule that protects the Republic from the majority from […]

Trump Tax Plan Set for Slowed Timetable

Mon, 04/10/2017 - 12:56
Trump Tax Plan

The Trump tax plan, which was being pushed as something that could be passed by this August, now appears to be in jeopardy. Tax reform is a difficult topic and it appears that the Trump administration is going back to the drawing board to rework the plan into something that can gain wider consensus in […]

By 54-45 Vote, Gorsuch Confirmed to Supreme Court

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 16:11

Justice Neil Gorsuch has been confirmed to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia early last year. To bypass a Democrat filibuster, Republicans used what has been coined the “nuclear option” to change the rules back to what they were before 2003 when a super-majority was not required for judicial […]
