  • U.S. Seeks Up to 27 Months in Prison for Ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner

    (Reuters) — U.S. prosecutors on Wednesday sought a prison sentence of 21 to 27 months for former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, who admitted to sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl in a "sexting" scandal that played a role in last year’s U.S. presidential election. "Weiner, a grown man, a father, and a former lawmaker, willfully and knowingly asked a 15-year-old girl to display her body and engage in sexually explicit conduct for him online," prosecutors said in a filing in Manhattan federal court. "Such conduct warrants a meaningful sentence of incarceration." A lawyer for Weiner, who is scheduled...
  • Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man?

    Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man? Bob Adelmann The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against a potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation...

    Three Democratic members of Congress have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges at a protest outside Trump Tower. U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva, of Arizona; Luis Gutierrez, of Illinois; and Adriano Espaillat, of New York, were among a small group of demonstrators who sat down in the street on New York’s Fifth Avenue on Tuesday and refused to move. The lawmakers were handcuffed and led away. Police say they were issued desk appearance tickets and released. The protesters were demanding that Congress pass legislation protecting thousands of young immigrants from deportation.....

    The Democratic Coalition filed a complaint with the Office of Government Ethics alleging that Presidential Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' suggestion that ESPN host Jemele Hill's tweet labeling the President "a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists" might be a "fireable offense," broke the law. Democratic Coalition chairman Jon Cooper insisted that "we cannot ignore the sinister implications of what the Trump Administration has done here. Mrs. Sanders contends she is entitled to express her opinion about the outrageous comments of Ms. Hill, but clearly her statement was intended to intimidate ESPN into firing one...

    WASHINGTON — Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, then followed the house search with a warning: His prosecutors told Mr. Manafort they planned to indict him, said two people close to the...

    Why does it seem virtually unknown (or unacknowledged) nowadays that the Democrat party is the ones with the legacy of racism and hatred in America? And why is it that the population can’t see the Left’s policies for what they really are? Fascism and Nazism! First some basic history that is being plastered over by the MSM: The Republican Party was basically formed to oppose slavery, which was fully supported by the Democrats who wanted to enforce and expand it. The 13th Amendment which abolished slavery passed in 1865 with 100% Republicans voting for it, and only 23% Democrat support...

    LANSING — A long-stalled movement to make it illegal to discriminate against LGBT people may gain traction — not in the Legislature but with a Michigan board that is being asked to declare that such discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations is already unlawful under state law. The Michigan Civil Rights Commission will meet today to consider the request after two months of receiving public feedback, including roughly 300 comments. The interpretive statement, if issued, would say that discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity is a form of sex discrimination outlawed under the state’s 1976...

    When the 115th Congress took its first recess, members went home to their districts and in some cases to speak directly to their constituents via town halls. During recess members made news for one of two reasons: either they held a town hall which was packed with angry constituents or they opted not to hold an in-district event and were shamed by their constituents as a result. Republican members who were targeted in particular complained bitterly about organized and so-called paid protesters. They were supported by the White House in their characterization. President Trump tweeted that the protests were “planned...

    The nationally organized, local left-wing grassroots group known as Indivisible is getting pretty ticked off about being described as “scripted” — even though its members are raising their own concerns about Wisconsin Indivisible chapters working from scripts. The outrage – at least the latest outrage – follows an op/ed last week in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by an Nicole Tieman, communications director for U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls. The piece, takes aim at the notion that the so-called Indivisible “uprisings” are part of an organic movement, instead of a scripted, well organized and, it appears, well financed national “resistance...

    As masked leftists use clubs to shut down free speech at Berkeley and elsewhere, Democrats have unfortunately been reticent to condemn the activity. But Antifa violence is not the only kind of condemnable disruptive activity. Democrats should also disavow the organized campaign to harass Republican congressmen and stop Republican town halls. One group in the thick of this battle is “Indivisible.” The group was founded by a former staffer for Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett, and its COO, Matt Traidi, is the research coordinator for the Service Employees International Union. Indivisible provides these instructions on how to prevent other town hall...

    Once again, big city Democrat politicians have failed us. A deep societal wound was opened this past weekend in the Show Me State, with Ferguson, the false clarion call of “Hands Up Don't Shoot,” and the Black Lives Matter marches all still fresh in our memories, another. The acquittal on Friday of a white cop on trial for murder for fatally shooting a black man in 2011 after a high-speed chase was immediately met with demonstrations and violence including attacks on police, property, and the media. That was predictable, but what was equally and sadly on display were incendiary comments...

    Stick a fork in the Democrats and Republicans. Wednesday night's latest round of deal making between President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders is the latest evidence that the major political parties have lost all semblance of real power. Never before have we seen the leadership of both major political parties so humbled. That power vacuum is currently enabling the president to act without any loyalty to his own party, while working with whomever he pleases on whatever issues he wants. It's why we have a Republican congressional leadership, headlined by a Senate Majority Leader with an 18 percent approval...

    In trying to reckon with her loss, Hillary Clinton doubles down on the same hollow rhetoric and questionable politics that contributed to it. "I'm coming around to the idea that what we need more than anything at this moment in America is what you might call 'radical empathy.'" — Hillary Rodham Clinton, "What Happened"I have empathy for Hillary Clinton. This is not because I agree with her politics, or because I like her at all, but because in an effort to be a kinder, more grown-up person, I try to have empathy for everyone. But because my empathy extends beyond...

    Americans are not prepared to take big chunks out of their paychecks for socialized medicine, and they’re not keen to move far left. Today is single-payer day. Bernie Sanders is introducing the Medicare for All Act of 2017, and this time he’s no lone socialist crying in the progressive wilderness. A total of 15 Democratic senators are backing his bill, including most of the top Democratic contenders for the presidency. As the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake observed yesterday, “The dam is breaking.” The New Republic, among others, is even arguing that single-payer is becoming the newest “litmus test” for the...

The embattled Awan couple did not reside at the home, however, did maintain separate internet service and a router which fed into a locked internal storage area connected to the home, according to an interview with former tenant Laurel Everly who rented the home for nine months from the Awans in 2014 and 2015. Everly has now provided photos and videos of...

    Updated voter registration stats. *These are all comparing November to the most current available---usually it's September. FL is up to date to the day. PA's last report was in May. *The numbers represent NET gains or losses. In many cases, thought not all, both parties lost members (though indies have not gained, indicating voter roll purges, elimination of the dead & those who moved). In AZ and DE there were absolute gains. *Party registration is not available for some key states: WI, MI, VA, TX, and MN. This makes it impossible to evaluate the trends with absolute certainty, but ....

    Hillary Clinton failed to become America’s first female president last November when she was beaten by Donald Trump. But which women could win in 2020? 1. Elizabeth Warren The current favourite to become America’s first female president is the progressive Democratic senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Warren was first elected to the senate in 2012, and is up for re-election in 2018. Plenty of outlets have speculated that Warren could be preparing a 2020 presidential bid, including earlier this year in the Observer. After Donald Trump and Mike Pence, Warren is the third favourite American to become president in 2020,...
