    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    President Donald Trump questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s dubious participation in stock market initial public offering shares, enriching her family. The president shared a clip Monday highlighting a CBS 60 Minutes report featuring author and Breitbart senior contributor Peter Schweizer’s investigation into Pelosi and her husband participating in at least eight different stock IPOs while in Congress. 60 Minutes reporter Steve Kroft confronted Pelosi on the topic in 2011, but she denied any impropriety. The report noted that Pelosi and her husband participated in an initial public offering of Visa in 2008, while credit card regulation was underway in the...

    President Trump on Wednesday claimed in a series of tweets that it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, not him, who suffered a “meltdown!” at an earlier White House meeting on Syria. Trump sent out three tweets with photos from the gathering, blasting Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, who stormed out of the meeting and claimed the president called Pelosi “a third-rate politician.” In the first photo shared by Trump, which focuses in on the two lawmakers, the president wrote, “The Do Nothing Democrats, Pelosi and Schumer stormed out of the Cabinet Room!”

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood staff try to prove their conversations with undercover investigators in public places were ‘private’ The civil trial of Planned Parenthood v. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) resumed on Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco with two Planned Parenthood leaders taking the stand. They each testified to the fact that the screening process for exhibitors at Planned Parenthood Federation America’s trade show was “inadequate.” Planned Parenthood is claiming CMP violated the “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” (RICO) law when CMP investigators went undercover at Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation trade shows and meetings in...

"She had a total meltdown in the White House today," he continued. "It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!"

    Schiff says committees will make impeachment inquiry transcripts public when it would not 'jeopardize investigative equities' House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a letter Wednesday that interview transcripts from closed-door impeachment inquiry depositions will be made public when they do not "jeopardize investigative equities." The Dear Colleague letter is designed to counter arguments from Republicans in both the White House and Congress that Democrats are conducting an invalid investigation, since their witness interviews are being held behind closed doors, outside the eyes of the public and lawmakers who don't sit on the three committees leading the investigations....

    It’s one thing to read about the decline of San Francisco. It’s another to see it for yourself. I could hardly recognize this once-captivating city of breathtaking views, delectable food and cool jazz. Today it’s occupied by an army of homeless men and women who have turned Baghdad-by-the-bay into Bombay-by-the-bay with some of the dirtiest slums in America. I first visited San Francisco in 1964 as a member of Barry Goldwater’s political team that wrapped up the Republican presidential nomination for the candidate who offered a conservative choice, not a liberal echo. Then, we freely roamed the streets and hills...
