    Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign was mocked Friday for editing a clip from a CNN town hall that included inserting fake applause after a remark made by the 38-year-old presidential candidate. "To me, that is not just a concern for our generation, it's a concern that calls on us to build an alliance among generations to try to make sure that the future really is better than the past," Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., said in answering a question from an audience member in New Hampshire. In the live CNN event on Thursday night, Buttigieg's answer did...

    by Joe Callen A clearly angry House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was forced on Wednesday night to stop House Democrats from cheering their purely partisan impeachment of President Donald Trump following the vote as reports also surfaced that House Democrats were taking selfies.“Article one is adopted,” Pelosi said. Immediately after she pounded her gavel, clapping broke out on the Democrats’ side, which prompted a death stare from Pelosi. WATCH:

    Men are scared, and feminists are delighted. But the urge to call out and punish male sexual transgression is bound to clash with an inescapable truth: We’re all in this together, men and women. Consider what’s happening in the capital of Florida. Female staffers and lobbyists have found “many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately,” reported The Miami Herald. “I had a senator say, ‘I need my aide here in the room because I need a chaperone,’ ” lobbyist Jennifer Green told the paper. “I said, ‘Senator, why do you need a chaperone? . . .

    Joplin, MO - The Joplin Police Department has been ordered to cease all posting of "incident spotlights" which make criminals look bad by telling the public about their crimes. The incident spotlights tell the public about incidents that the department has responded to, and may include mugshots. KOAM reports that they have obtained e-mails which show disagreement between the police department and city manager about the social media posts. Joplin Police Chief Matt Stewart and Captain Trevor Duncan fought to keep the posts going, but City Manager Sam Anselm shut them down. According to KOAM, Anselm sent an e-mail to...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday his presidential campaign wasn't involved in research behind the infamous dirty dossier – a day after President Donald Trump said the campaign's identity will 'probably' be revealed. Rubio got asked about the dossier amid a new round of intrigue over who paid for the research, after the Washington Post reported that Democratic lawyer Marc Elias hired a political intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, who in turn hired ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled it. It has long been reported that a Republican anti-Trump donor initially paid for the research that begat the dossier. But...

    The advertisers publicly bowing to the Left and pulling ads from Sean Hannity's Fox show aren't getting cheers from their customers. The message board at USAA looks like there's some unhappiness. Meanwhile, the proof keeps coming that despite their stated "policy" of not advertising on opinion shows, USAA has advertised on wild-eyed MSNBC programming speculating on how much Donald Trump is owned by Russian strongmen and oligarchs.For example, our diggers found a USAA ad on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show on May 2:(video at link)In March, Sonny Bunch was somehow allowed to blog at The Washington Post that Maddow's big...

    The phrase “fake news” gets thrown around a lot, but not for the reasons media would like (see Tucker Carlson Almost Makes a Washington Post Reporter Cry Over ‘Fake News’ and Joe Scarborough Ground and Pounds Anti-Trump Media Over Fake News). A Hospital CEO from Georgia accused CNN of fabricating a story, and now he has a court decision to back him up… "Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia."

    Uh-Oh! Ted should have never made a spectacle of himself at the RNC, and maybe kept his promise to support the nominee because now, it seems, it has come back to bite him. The once extremely popular senator is no more than the lesser of the evils in his home state, in his senate race. At least that’s what the results of the latest in state poll show. CBS/DFW reports that Texans are smarting a bit over the recent Cruz behavior and they’re letting him know it. Sen. Ted Cruz won the Republican presidential primary in Texas with nearly 44...

    Hillary Clinton on Friday rejected the F.B.I.’s assertion that she had been “extremely careless” with classified material as secretary of state, offering her first public comments on the matter since the Justice Department closed its inquiry without bringing charges against her this week. In interviews on CNN and MSNBC, Mrs. Clinton tried to put the controversy surrounding her use of a private email server to rest, brushing off a rebuke from James Comey, the F.B.I. director, who had criticized her for being negligent. Although Mr. Comey, in a congressional hearing on Thursday, pointed out several contradictions between what Mrs. Clinton...
