    The dramatically scaled-down Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be closed to the press, a convention spokesperson and Republican official familiar with the plans tell CNN. Reporters will not be allowed on site as RNC delegates vote to formally nominate President Donald Trump as the 2020 Republican presidential nominee, but the vote will be livestreamed, the Republican official said. The restriction is unprecedented in modern American political history, but Republican officials said they were forced to limit attendance due to social distancing restrictions imposed by the governor of North Carolina. "Given the health restrictions and limitations in place...

    Faced with a public health crisis spiraling further out of control as a result of his own governing failures, a maskless President Donald Trump ranted against the “left-wing mob,” “far-left fascism” and “cancel culture” in a disjointed speech delivered at an Independence Day celebration held at Mount Rushmore National Memorial on Friday night. “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to defame our history,” Trump told a cheering crowd, most of whom also appeared to not be wearing masks. “Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders ... and unleash a wave of violent crime in our...

    Masks for thee but not for me. CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins may have worn her mask during the White House press briefing Friday, but she promptly removed the facial covering when the cameras were off — or so she thought. Video percolating on Twitter shows shortly after White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany finished her briefing, Collins removed her face mask which she had worn during the televised event. Other reporters in the video can be seen also wearing face masks which they did not remove.

    A reporter at The Washington Post learned that size does matter after trying to pin the exorbitant price of isopropyl alcohol on President Trump and his administration. The Post’s Amber Phillips posted and then deleted a tweet on Thursday announcing that the cost of isopropyl alcohol on Amazon was shockingly $2,375. Her tweet came after Trump’s coronavirus task force briefing at the White House Thursday where a Department of Homeland Security official spoke about the use of the product against the coronavirus.

    Sen. Ted Cruz engaged in a back-and-forth with a reporter while arguing that President Trump was justified in asking leaders in Ukraine to launch investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. "The House [impeachment] managers built their entire case on the proposition that investigating Burisma corruption, investigating the Bidens for corruption was baseless and a sham," Cruz said during a press conference on Monday. "That proposition is absurd ... We've just seen two hours of evidence." A reporter pressed Cruz, saying, "But senator, none of the president's attorneys mentioned one single possible crime. Basically, what they said...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's defense failed him at the opening of his Senate impeachment trial on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had one job. He just had to collect 51 votes for the trial rules he had written, in close consultation with White House officials, to deliver Trump an acquittal quickly, quietly and with as few surprises as possible. He couldn't do it. Fellow Republicans balked at his plan so late in the game — moments before the start of the trial — that he had to order up handwritten changes sought by Democrats just to secure...

    Chesley Sullenberger, the pilot who performed the “Miracle on the Hudson”, has told Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump to “grow up” and “show some decency”, after she mocked Joe Biden for stuttering. Biden, a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination to face President Trump in November, has spoken openly about his lifelong experiences with a stutter. Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s second son Eric, works for the Trump re-election campaign and spoke in that capacity at an event in Iowa on Friday, the day after the seventh Democratic debate. “I feel kind of sad for Biden,” she said....

    A new study from the Federal Reserve found that President Trump’s tariffs are backfiring. According to the Fed study, the tariffs that went into effect in 2018 have led to not only higher producer prices but also a loss of jobs across the U.S. — particularly in manufacturing. . .

    THE HISTORY of U.S. politics is full of second chances — of scandal-scarred, disgraced and irredeemable public figures staging improbable comebacks — but few back-from-the-dead narratives have been as swift and sure-footed as the one Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has managed this year. Since Feb. 1, when the discovery of a racist photo on his medical school yearbook page dealt what seemed a lethal blow to his political career, Mr. Northam has refocused his governorship on racial equity and reconciliation in what amounted to an extended act of public contrition and atonement. It has been astonishingly effective not just in...

    A legal scholar who received threats after testifying for the GOP at last Wednesday’s House impeachment hearing said that trolls are now going after his wife — and even his dog. Jonathan Turley, who argued against the speed at which Democrats have gone through the impeachment process, was acting as a CBS News contributor on TV Monday when host Norah O’Donnell said, “I know you received a lot of threats after what you did last week.” “And my wife and dog,” Turley added. “You did talk about them during your testimony, to be fair though. You did bring up your...

    Berkeley College Republicans, or BCR, announced Tuesday that it will host Ann Coulter on the UC Berkeley campus, two and a half years after the right-wing author withdrew her controversial campus speech in 2017 amid safety concerns. Coulter, a self-identified “right-wing polemicist” who has previously garnered criticism for her controversial political views, is scheduled to discuss U.S. immigration policy during her Nov. 20 talk, titled “Adios, America!”

    On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace spoke with Vice President Mike Pence and said the successful operation is a victory for America. He also questioned the VP on Trump saying he didn’t inform Pelosi in advance, with “the implication seeming to be that Pelosi or members of Congress would leak this.” “Does the President not trust the Speaker of the House with sensitive national security information?” Wallace asked. Pence disputed that was the implication, saying Trump’s “total focus was on a successful mission” and on the safety of the troops.

    President Trump said Saturday that he will no longer host the G-7 Summit at his struggling Miami golf resort — but blamed the media and Democrats for his about-face rather than concern over an appearance of self-dealing. Trump made the announcement in a trio of evening tweets, lashing out at his Democratic rivals and at press opposition — including from the New York Post — to his holding the summit at Trump National Doral. “I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big,...

    No amount of growth or good intentions will change this fact. [Cut] Furthermore, it’s not what Biden says in prepared remarks that’s problematic, it’s what he says off the cuff and under pressure that to me reveal an antiquated view on racial matters and racial sensitivities. It was the way he advocated for the 1994 crime bill, a bill that contributed to America’s surging mass incarceration, which disproportionately affected black and brown people in this country. The bill did some good, but the harm it did cannot be overlooked or understated. Rather than fully owning up to to the disastrous...
  • Column: Sen. Ted Cruz and other Republicans in Congress are ignorant about gun laws

    Chicago Tribune ^ | SEP 04, 2019 | 5:36 PM | DAHLEEN GLANTON
    It is obvious that Republicans in Congress don’t understand America’s gun problem. But Sen. Ted Cruz has taken that ignorance to a new level. The GOP loves to point out, erroneously, that Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the nation, yet the murder rate is the highest. Neither point is accurate, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans, including Donald Trump, from spreading the lie. Chicagoans are used to being the scapegoat for lawmakers who don’t have the guts to do the right thing when it comes to passing sensible gun legislation. But when self-serving politicians try to shirk their responsibility...

    It was an opportunity the Trump reelection campaign couldn’t refuse. President Trump’s 2020 campaign wasted no time Tuesday in selling “Fredo Unhinged” T-shirts to piggyback on the controversy over CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s unhinged viral video rant. For $34, Trump supporters can get a T-shirt with unflattering screen grabs of the host from the video where he rages against a man who called the anchor “Fredo.” “CNN’s Chris Cuomo is Fredo!” the Trump campaign shop says of the “limited edition” T-shirt that went live at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday. “The truth hurts. He totally lost it. Help us annoy Chris Cuomo...

    What Conservative commentator Mark Levin has called the “Democrat Party Press” are active co-conspirators in the long-running Russia hoax being perpetrated on the American public.

Against the interests of the public. Against the principles of the Republic.
