    It’s just the flu, bro. The left is using Wuhan Flu as a pretext for socialism. The mantra this time is “we must save people’s lives”. The most recent pretext for socialism before this one is global warming. With global warming the pretext is that “we must save the planet”. In either case, the validity of the pretext is irrelevant. What matters is the effectiveness at tugging at people‘s heartstrings. With both Global warming and Wuhan flu the call is for massive government expenditures and increased control over people’s lives. The disaster with Wuhan flu is that people believe they...

    Boo! Post your spooky stories. My dog visited me a few times after she died. Twice, after working in the garden where she is buried, she followed me back into the house. I heard her drinking at her water bowl and a couple of very audible dog sighs like when she'd lay down.

    Alabama Republican Roy Moore has announced he is running for U.S. Senate again in 2020 after failing to win the seat two years ago amid sexual misconduct accusations. Moore announced his campaign Thursday, seeking an eventual rematch against Democratic Sen. Doug Jones. The announcement upends an election viewed by Republicans as a top priority in 2020 and ignores President Donald Trump's warning that he "cannot win."
  • Cory Booker: I can't stand the word 'realistically'

    PELHAM, New Hampshire — Cory Booker took a veiled dig at Democratic presidential candidates such as Joe Biden on Saturday, who err on the side of pragmatism. "There's one word I can't stand: it's 'realistically.' And the reason why I can't stand is because I was the mayor of a city that had decades of crime and corruption as its reputation," the New Jersey senator and former Newark mayor told voters in Pelham, New Hampshire, a Republican-heavy town in the Granite State. Booker then detoured into steps he took as chief executive of the state capital from 2006 to 2013...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Thursday that he and his allies will actively work to oppose Roy Moore's bid for Alabama's Senate seat after the conservative firebrand announced he was jumping into the race. "We'll be opposing Roy Moore vigorously," McConnell told reporters after returning to the Capitol after a White House briefing on Iran. McConnell's comments come after he warned, during an interview with the Associated Press shortly before Moore announced his bid, that he would "oppose him in every way." Moore announced on Thursday afternoon that he would launch a bid for Alabama's Senate seat...

    Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is set to announce his plans for the 2020 Alabama senate race on Thursday at 2 p.m. at The Ballroom in Montgomery. Moore lost the U.S. Senate race in 2017 amid allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers. Moore denied the allegations. President Donald Trump last month tweeted that Moore “cannot win” and said Republicans need to retake the seat in the once reliable red state. Democratic Sen. Doug Jones currently holds the position. The event is open to invited guests and credentialed press.

    Rosario Dawson's all in on Cory Booker for President in 2020, but she might be a little biased ... because she just confirmed with us ... they're in a serious, loving relationship!!! The actress was at the Reagan National Airport in D.C. Thursday when our guy quizzed her on what's been widely rumored -- she's the woman Booker referred to last month on the Breakfast Club when he said he was dating someone very special, while adding, "I got a boo." It didn't take much prodding before Dawson said it was true and began gushing over her man, calling him...

    Former Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who lost a December special election after allegations of past child molestation and sexual misconduct surfaced, floated a possible future bid for office in a statement released Thursday. "I have no plans at this time to run for office. Nevertheless, plans change. If the opportunity arises to make a difference, I will have no reluctance to again run for political office, including that of governor," he said in the statement. Moore lost the recent special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions's Senate seat in no small part thanks to the allegations that...

    A new Gallup poll shows growing support for marijuana legalization, with 64 percent of Americans now in favor of the measure. The number is the highest level of support in nearly half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup. Support has steadily increased in recent years, with the latest figure up 4 percentage points over last year and up 14 points from 2011. The poll also showed a majority of Republicans favoring legalization for the first time, with 51 percent expressing support. That number is up 9 percentage points from last year, according to Gallup.

    So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington. Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park. Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it. One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.” The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP...

    Former CIA Director and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s address to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Wednesday was met with loud boos and chants of “No more war!” and “Lies!” from the delegation. Panetta, who headed the CIA and Department of Defense under President Obama, called Hillary Clinton “the single most experienced and prepared person who has ever run for President of the United States,” but was interrupted by the unruly crowd repeatedly during his speech.

    “You arrogant ass!” yelled Donald Hoffman, the former president of the American Nuclear Society, who was standing on the floor for Cruz’s remarks. Cruz continued on, his voice shaky, as the noise from delegates on the floor — and attendees in the second and third decks of the arena — all but drowned him out. The scene, watched by millions of people around the world, was an unmitigated nightmare for Cruz, who in many ways was using Wednesday’s speech as the unofficial kickoff of his 2020 campaign. Cruz knew that he was taking a risk by not endorsing Trump —...

    An associate professor at the University of North Dakota called the police on two ROTC students carrying replica rifles on campus, saying the group's practice drills are "highly inappropriate" and "irresponsible" in light of recent school shootings. In a letter Sunday to the Grand Forks Herald, Heidi Czerwiec described the panic she felt when she looked up from her office computer to see "two figures in camo with guns" outside her window. "My first thought is for my students' and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911," she wrote. The threat, however, was two...
