    Cory Booker is returning to the first-in-the-nation primary state for a trip that could turn out to be a tuneup for the New Jersey senator’s potential Democratic presidential campaign. Booker’s been invited by the New Hampshire Democratic Party to headline their post-midterm election “Victory Celebration” Saturday in Manchester. […] Booker’s said repeatedly in recent weeks that he’ll take the holiday season to assess whether he launches a White House campaign. …

    International human rights attorney Amal Clooney accused President Trump of putting the lives of journalists in danger with his rhetoric in a speech at the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards this week. She said that journalists were “under attack,” in “autocratic regimes from North Korea to the Philippines to Hungary.” “The U.S. president has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the ‘enemy of the people,’” she argued. President Trump has used and tweeted the “enemy of the people” label about media he considers to be “fake news.” “And of course, two months ago,...

    Born on December 7, 1928, Noam Chomsky was raised by Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants in Philadelphia. Though his father was a Hebrew scholar who studied medieval grammar, Chomsky lacked direction through school and university and only committed to the study of linguistics when he took up a post at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1955. It wasn't long, however, before the young unknown scholar single-handedly revolutionized the field of linguists, his book Syntactic Structures (1957) kickstarting his concept of "transformational grammar" that argued — contrary to the behaviourist fad of the time — that our linguistic capacity is genetic...

    A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House who says he suffered a concussion after being attacked by a man at a St. George Township restaurant last week is pointing the finger at several high-profile Democrats for “driving this behavior.” Shane Mekeland told the Star Tribune that he was “blindsided” Friday night by a man at a restaurant he wouldn’t identify. “While I had never met my assailant, the words he yelled at me before he attacked lead me to believe his actions were politically motivated,” Mr. Mekeland, who is running for the House in District 15B, wrote in a Facebook...

    Maxine Waters is a corrupt, abusive politician who cares nothing for the truth. Two weeks ago, she encouraged her far-left crowd of admirers to harass Trump officials in public places. Harassments easily become violent. She knows that and so do the Democrats claiming she didn’t encourage violence. Even if she didn’t, what right do these people have to urge abuse of political opponents in restaurants, gas stations, the public square, especially when they are on their own time, with their families? Referencing the harassment of Sarah Sanders, Kristjen Nielsen, and others, she said: “I want to tell you, these members...

    The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting "mob violence" with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill. "When you’re out there ... inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told "Fox & Friends." "And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence." Judicial...

    Bonnie and Clyde sometimes called themselves “bank inspectors,” but they were only kidding. The Palestinian Authority, the famous terrorist collective pretending to be a nation, collects $350 million from the U.S. Treasury every year to pay “salaries” to imprisoned terrorists, make love offerings to families of dead terrorists, celebrate terrorists as heroes, build monuments to dead criminals, and other bad things. And that’s no joke. The Palestinian Authority was even invited to an international conference in Paris the other day to talk about how to prevent financing of terrorism, to behead the venomous snake before it bites. That’s the sickest...

After a year and a half of the MSM and social media keeping their histrionics on display, it may be easy to conclude that the Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD) belongs only to politicians like Congresswoman Maxine Waters, celebrities like Robert de Niro, assorted ‘comedians’ and cable news and radio talk show hosts like Joe Scarborough and fiancé Mika Brzezinski.

    Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs on Monday introduced a measure that would censure Rep. Maxine Waters and ask her to resign for inciting people to publicly confront Trump administration officials. Biggs told The Hill that Waters’ comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress” and warrant disciplinary action. “So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” the Arizona Republican told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.” “Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did,”...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, called for total social warfare against the entire Trump administration, cheering on those who in recent days have attacked or rebuffed them at restaurants and their homes, and calling for more in that vein.“Let’s stay the course, let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” she said at a speech, the video of which was posted Sunday on social media by conservatives.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Saturday called on her supporters at a rally to confront Trump Cabinet officials in public spaces like restaurants and department stores to protest the administration's policies. "I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it is wrong what they're doing on so many fronts but they tend to not want to confront this president," Waters said at a Los Angeles rally on Saturday. "For these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him they're not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they're not...

    Maxine Waters wants more people to harass Trump administration officials in public spaces. The California Congresswoman went on a shouting rampage during a toy drive outside the Wilshire Federal Building on Saturday. After claiming Trump is”sacrificing our children,” referring to the illegal immigrant kids separated from their “parents” near the border, Waters again called for the president’s impeachment, triggering loud applause from the baying mob. “History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” she yelled, whipping up the crowd. “If you think we’re rallying now, you...

    On Saturday night, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraged the type of recent protests against President Trump as seen in several Washington, DC and Virginia area restaurants, saying that she has "no sympathy" for those who serve in the administration and that the public should "turn on them" and "absolutely harass" White House officials while they are doing normal every day activities. Rep. Waters (D-CA) has called for President Trump's impeachment in the past, even leading chants at rallies saying, "Impeach 45! Impeach 45!". Yesterday, "Auntie Maxine", as she is affectionately known amongst her fans, added her name to a...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio used taxpayer resources to push his national political agenda — at one point even asking his staff to come up with a governmental excuse to justify a political trip to Washington, DC, emails show. In September 2015, Hizzoner was trying to build a coalition of labor and elected officials to support his Progressive Agenda — spending many hours each week peddling his income inequality platform to potential officials.

    In a searing speech from the pulpit of a black church, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a Brooklyn congregation on Sunday that Donald Trump is a “slick salesman” who fooled many people in this country, but the Democrat said the Republican president hasn’t fooled New Yorkers. Cuomo spoke at Brooklyn’s First Baptist Church of Crown Heights after a week of criticism for saying America “was never that great” during a bill signing. New York Republicans have demanded he apologize, and Trump tweeted that Cuomo was having a “total meltdown.” The governor seemed to counter what many observers considered a...

    The former “My Name is Earl” actress and current gun control activist denounced the increased availability of 3-D printed gun files this week. In an opinion piece for CNN entitled, “A 3D printed gun is downloadable death” and a follow-up Anderson Cooper interview, Milano argued that public safety is at risk due to the recent settlement with Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed Group in which the federal government granted an exception in State Department arms control regulations to allow the files to go live to a broader audience. “It is not hyperbole to say that this could mean the end of...

    House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump “seeks to establish a more authoritarian regime.” Houer was responding to a question about whether former CIA Director John Brennan should be allowed to keep his security clearance after calling a sitting president’s actions “treasonous.” At his regular pen-and-pad briefing with reporters, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer: “Former CIA Director John Brennan has publicly declared the sitting president ‘treasonous.’ Should he be permitted to keep his security clearance?” Hoyer responded: “I’m very, very concerned. This is one instance—but there are so many others—where this president opts to promote totalitarian responses...

    California Democrat Maxine Waters has distanced herself from supporters who burned a US flag outside her office as they counter-protested a far-right militia group. A few dozen supporters made a rebellious appearance outside the congresswoman's Los Angeles office on Thursday to counter the expected protest by the far-right Oath Keepers group. The flag-burning incident occurred soon after the Oath Keepers group failed to show despite vowing that it would rally against the Waters. Photos from the protest show a group stomping on the flag before circling around and cheering when it erupted into flames. The Democratic counter-protesters were heard chanting:...

    If you're paying a mortgage on a house south of Interstate10, I have some bad news for you. For that matter, if you own a business, work or play south of that line (I'm thinking hunting and fishing) the news is just as dire: President Donald Trump and your GOP congressional delegation are preparing to increase the odds that the Gulf of Mexico will drown your homes and any future your grandchildren might have in south Louisiana. That's because Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh, a regular opponent of government regulations on businesses, to fill the coming vacancy on the Supreme...
