  • Schiff says it’s ‘premature’ to make a determination in Trump, Russia case

    Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday it’s “premature” to conclusively say there isn’t any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. “I do think we need to get to the bottom of these allegations of collusion or coordination,” the California Democrat said on CNN. “I believe that there is.” When he was asked “is it premature to say there’s no evidence?” Mr. Schiff responded: “It is premature.” Mr. Schiff said he believes the FBI’s investigation proves there’s something to the allegations, or the agency wouldn’t be looking into the issue so closely.

    NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. — On Friday night a group of Trump supporters came together in New Hartford for a "Deploraball," a play on the remark Hillary Clinton made on the campaign trail. Clinton used the phrase to describe then nominee Donald Trump's supporters. After the election, a Clinton pollster said the comment was the single biggest moment when voters switched from undecided to Trump. The "Deploraball" was a packed out night at Cavellos to mark President Trump's 100th day in office. Peg Roberts of Utica said she couldn't be happier with the progress the Trump campaign has made so far....

    President Trump sent a tweet Friday evening claiming that North Korea "disrespected" China's wishes with its latest ballistic missile test. Trump called the missile test unsuccessful in his tweet that was aimed at putting distance between Pyongyang and Beijing, while praising Chinese President Xi Jinping as "highly respected." North Korea launched a ballistic missile around 5:30 a.m. local time from near the Pukchang airfield in central North Korea, U.S. and South Korean military officials said. U.S. Pacific Command said the missile did not leave North Korean territory, while South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff reportedly said that the test "failed."

    Protesters started to gather around Trump hotel this evening, blaring loud dance music and holding LGBT flags. Jack Posobiec was live on the scene asking the protesters what exactly they were protesting. Many said ‘gay rights and climate change’. Posobiec spoke to one protester who said gays are being excluded under the Trump administration and that Mike Pence ‘signed something’ and is putting gay people in jail. Posobiec: “What rights do gay people not have?” Protester: “So under Mike Pence you could go to jail for 18 months…” Posobiec: “Mike Pence has sent gay people to jail?” Protester: “Yes.” Posobiec:...

    LGBTQ Trump supporters may seem like unicorns, but they do exist. In fact, according to exit polling, 14 percent of our community voted for him in the 2016 election. While that number is down from what the GOP managed to take in previous presidential elections, where they managed to absorb between the low to high 20 percent range, it still represents a not so insignificant number of people. Speaking with several LGBTQ individuals who maintain support for President Trump, as we hit the first 100 days in office benchmark, a few things became clear. For one, they know they baffle...

    Update: The Palm Beach Post just reported Melgen was convicted of all 67 counts. “A prominent Florida eye doctor has been convicted on all counts in his Medicare fraud trial, raising the possibility he could be pressured to testify in the bribery trial of New Jersey Democratic Sen.

Menendez denies any wrongdoing. Prosecutors contended that the 62-year-old Melgen stole up to $105 million from the federal insurance program between 2008 and...

    DENVER - Even during his candidacy, President Trump was seen as a gun-friendly candidate. He picked up the National Rifle Association's endorsement at the 2016 NRA convention. As Trump spoke to the NRA on Friday, there was some evidence his friendly stance towards gun owners may be leading to slowing sales. It is well documented that when gun owners feel their 2nd Amendment rights are threatened, gun sales skyrocket.

    Billionaire political activist George Soros appears to be getting back in the game of funding local races for district attorney, this time trying to hand-pick the winner in the Philadelphia contest. snip In the 2016 campaign, Soros created local, independent expenditure committees or political action committees which allowed him to bypass the individual contribution limits on giving to a candidate's own committee. Soros was then able to spend unlimited amounts on mailers and television ads on behalf of the candidate, provided there was no coordination between the Soros-created PAC and the candidate. In most of the 2016 contests, the Soros...

    WASHINGTON ― Some of the Trump administration’s nominees have pushed back against the government’s ethics requirements with “a ferocity we’ve not previously seen,” Walter Shaub, the director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, told a top White House lawyer in an email this week. Shaub was responding to Reince Priebus, President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, who, when asked on Fox News Wednesday why the White House has been slow to fill key positions, claimed that many nominees were “sitting and waiting for OGE.” “That’s not the case,” Shaub wrote in an email sent to Stefan Passantino, the White...

    President Donald Trump on Friday proclaimed May 1 as 'Loyalty Day' as a way to "recognize and reaffirm our allegiance to the principles" upon which America was built and express pride in those ideals, according to a release of the proclamation from the White House. “The United States stands as the world's leader in upholding the ideals of freedom, equality, and justice. Together, and with these fundamental concepts enshrined in our Constitution, our Nation perseveres in the face of those who would seek to harm it," the proclamation reads. "We humbly thank our brave service members and veterans who have...

    Well-edited, five minute video shows a compendium of moments of high action at April 15th 2017 Battle of Berkeley. Editor sets video to the famous tune, "Glory, Glory Hallelujah", matching clips and musical mood. While it starts out funny, I found this an incredibly inspiring video, and I have seen most of the prominent ones treating this topic several times. I usually find the tune a little hokey, but in this context it really, really got to me. You will be inspired by this video, even secular patriots will be.

    Trump criticizes N.Korean missile launch US President Donald Trump has criticized North Korea for its latest ballistic missile launch. Trump took to Twitter on Friday, saying "North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!"

The US Pacific Command says Pyongyang launched the missile from Bukchang in South Pyongan Province at around 5:30 AM on Saturday Seoul Time. It adds that the missile did not leave North Korean territory,...

    As President Trump took the stage to champion the Second Amendment at a National Rifle Association convention on Friday, a United States senator sought to counter his message by unleashing a Twitter storm using the names, ages and pictures of gun violence victims. Senator Christopher S. Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut, who has fought for increased gun control since the 2012 school massacre in his home state, posted on Twitter on Friday morning to urge his followers not to watch Mr. Trump’s speech and instead, “think about who we are fighting for.”

    Truth is pliable in Trumpland. In March, the president fired off a tweet accusing former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower. Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, dismissed the claim. But the Trump team doubled down, writing off media reports and insisting that evidence of wiretapping would soon surface. It didn’t. We’re used to this pattern by now: The president dresses up useful lies as “alternative facts” and decries uncomfortable realities as “fake news.” Stoking conservative passion and liberal fury, Trump stirs up confusion about the veracity of settled knowledge and,...
