Three reporters have resigned from CNN following the release of a false news story last week which linked a Trump associate to a Russian hedge fund.

Russia: Meddling, Da; Collusion, Nyet

Mon, 06/26/2017 - 17:15

The National Review (NR) has a story that pretty much explains the 2016 election Russian connection: Yes, there was meddling.

But NO—there is no evidence (so far) that there was any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. And that […]

Remember when President Trump threatened on twitter that James Comey “better hope there are no tapes” of conversations between Comey and Trump?

What Did the Special Elections Mean?

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 15:45

Republicans are gloating over two wins Tuesday—by 52-48 and 51-49—in “landslide” districts that no one would expect to even consider the other party.

Democrats Lose Fourth Straight Special Election

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 12:51

South Carolina’s 5th […]

Terrible Candidates in Georgia’s Special Election

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 16:10

Where do the parties get these candidates?? He’s a tall, skinny Peewee Herman type, she’s a short, frumpy Rosie O’Donnell type. He doesn’t even live in the district, she’s a terminal loser—with the same campaigning ability as Hillary Clinton. THAT is why the parties have had to spend more than in any congressional race in […]

Fri, 06/16/2017 - 12:59

Hell hath no fury like a Russian scorned. Or so it seems today.
