    A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year. The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS. Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump...

    On last Friday’s edition of the Glenn Beck’s radio program, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly doubled down on claims about the existence of an audio recording of an anti-Trump individual offering “$200,000 to file sexual harassment charges against then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.” "Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is predicting a huge onslaught against President Trump in January based around fake accusations of sexual assault as Democrats panic that Trump’s chances of re-election are surging. Warning, “There’s going to be a tremendous assault on President Trump” beginning in January, O’Reilly says Democrats now feel they must go all...

    If Republicans succeed in limiting the state-and-local tax deduction, one hope is that this could finally inspire a come-to-Jesus moment in prodigal high-tax states. Democrats in Illinois ought to be especially chastened by new IRS data showing an acceleration of out-migration. The Prairie State lost a record $4.75 billion in adjusted gross income to other states in the 2015 tax year, according to recently IRS data released. That’s up from $3.4 billion in the prior year. Many of the migrants were retirees who often flock to balmier climes. But millennials accounted for more than a third of the net outflow...

    CNN has developed a poor reputation for accuracy, especially in the past few years. Recently one of its contributors, political analyst Kirsten Powers, made a misleading claim about abortions declining under Democratic leadership. The Daily Caller reports Powers made the comments while discussing the controversial Alabama Senate race with journalist Jake Tapper and Trump campaign strategist David Urban. “Can we talk about this thing that Republicans do with abortion?” Powers said. “The abortion rate is the lowest rate it has been in 20 years. That’s because of Democrats being in power. This is what happens — every time Democrats are...

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is campaigning for re-election with a promise to fight for women’s ability to have their nearly fully-formed unborn babies aborted in brutal dismemberment abortions. Wolf released a new pro-abortion campaign ad this week as the Pennsylvania Senate considers Senate Bill 3, PennLive reports. The legislation would prohibit brutal dismemberment abortions that tear nearly fully-formed unborn babies limb from limb while their hearts are beating and ban abortions after 20 weeks when strong scientific evidence indicates unborn babies can feel pain. “I’m going to veto Senate Bill 3 if it gets to my desk,” Wolf said in...

    In what is the first successful prosecution in the scandal involving Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry, and the sale of aborted baby parts, two companies that sold aborted baby parts for the nation’s biggest abortion company have been forced to close down. The two California-based companies reached a settlement with the Orange County District Attorney’s office of almost $8 million dollars. As a result of the settlement the two companies will close up shop over the next couple of months and will no longer be selling parts from babies killed in abortions for Planned Parenthood or anyone else. This is...

    The DNC Unity Commission is going about as well as last year's unity tour. Tom Perez took over as Democratic National Committee chair in February and hoped to bring the wings of the party together, hoping to prove that Hillary Clinton supporters and Bernie Sanders supporters can get along. Instead, he was met with boos and heckles by frustrated liberals who believe the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary. That theory got plenty of traction from Donna Brazile's bombshell of a book. Failing to hold a fair election is bad enough, but according to one outspoken Democrat at the DNC...

    Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson and Foer were both featured speakers at an elite Washington, D.C. journalism conference three weeks before the story went up. Foer, who is now an editor at The Atlantic, did not return an email seeking comment about Fusion GPS’ role in his story. The Clinton campaign immediately used Foer’s hit piece, which was reportedly produced by their own opposition research firm, to accuse Trump of being too close with Russia. “This secret hotline may be the key to unlocking Trump’s ties to Russia,” Clinton campaign press secretary Jake Sullivan said at the time, calling it “the...

    Despite asserting “I’ve done nothing wrong” and expressing confidence that he would have been cleared of wrongdoing by a Senate Ethics Committee investigation, Sen Al Franken (D-Minn) announced that he would be resigning his seat “in the next few weeks.” Franken, pressured by dozens of his fellow Democrats to “resign for the good of the Party,” complained about “the double standard in our society that lets Donald Trump get away with boasting about groping women, but hangs me because I actually took the initiative to interact with these women. As Trump said on the Access Hollywood tape ‘women let you...

    With the Republican National Committee resuming funding to Roy Moore’s Senate campaign, some Republican voters are once again asking themselves: “Where do we go now?” These voters have felt adrift throughout the two years since Donald Trump began his quest for the presidency. With Moore being accused of sexually targeting underage girls, and with video surfacing last week of him agreeing with Vladimir Putin that the United States is “the modern evil” in the world, some longtime GOP voters are feeling more lost than ever. That’s in part because, rather than make a play for these politically homeless voters, Democrats...

    MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin’s infamous John Doe investigation was more sinister and politically driven than originally reported. A Wisconsin Attorney General report on the year-long investigation into leaks of sealed John Doe court documents to a liberal British publication in September 2016 finds a rogue agency of partisan bureaucrats bent on a mission “to bring down the (Gov. Scott) Walker campaign and the Governor himself.” The AG report, released Wednesday, details an expanded John Doe probe into a “broad range of Wisconsin Republicans,” a “John Doe III,” according to Attorney General Brad Schimel, that widened the scope of the so-called...

    David Brock’s Media Matters for America appears to be granting hundreds of thousands of dollars in charitable funds to political groups that are trying to impeach the president and unseat Republicans across the nation. Brock’s Media Matters for America is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has tax-exempt status. That tax-exempt status comes with an important caveat: the non-profit is barred from participating in political activity–funding or otherwise–that is in support or opposition to a candidate for office. Media Matters for America granted $200,000 in 2016 to a Brock organization, though it is unclear if it was American Bridge 21st...
  • Shutting Down The Government Over DACA Is A Risky Bet For Democrats

    Democrats would be making a risky political bet if they force a shutdown over DACA. A new Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll shows that just 17 percent of Americans believe that finding a replacement for DACA is an extremely important priority for Congress and President Trump to work on the rest of this year. That ranked 12th among the 15 domestic issues tested by Harvard. Even among Democrats, only 20 percent said renewing DACA was an extremely important priority. In other words: Support and saliency are not the same thing. Most people want DACA replaced. But for...

    The latest casualties in the Pervnado of the last few months, John Conyers and Al Franken, appear to be products of the Radical Left's fear that Roy Moore is going to win his special election in Alabama, despite what appear to credible allegations of harassment against Moore. The Radical Lefts new narrative seems to be, "We supported these guys until we learned that they were bad people. Now you're going to elect this creep even though you know about his past? Shame!" What our Lefty pals seem to misunderstand is that our response is simple, "Yes we know. And f***...

    More women are speaking out against boorishness and much worse that they claim to have experienced from prominent politically active men, encouraged by the courage of others, and by the contrition expected of their accused tormentors. A decision appears to have been made at the top levels of the Democratic Party that the sacrifice of the careers of their own pawns on the political chessboard is worthwhile in the quest to unseat a sitting POTUS. So, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, John Conyers, only partially functional owing to advanced age, is stepping down from his safe seat...

    In the comedy movie “Anchorman,” comedian Will Farrell advises his TV audience to “stay classy.” On Thursday, former “Saturday Night Live” comedian Al Franken didn’t follow that advice and resigned from the U.S. Senate in a particularly classless way. Even after eight women told reporters that the Minnesota Democrat had groped or forcibly kissed them, Franken denied he had done anything wrong. Franken said from the Senate floor that “some of the allegations are simply not true” and that he remembered other accusations differently. He then tried to wrap himself in a feminist flag by vowing he had always been...
  • Democrat Al Franken ‘Jokes’ About Gay Murder: “I Don’t Like Homosexuals–Was Glad He Got Killed”

    Democrat Al Franken laughed about a homosexual being killed: Al Franken: “I just don’t like homosexuals… Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.” Democrat Al Franken does not just have a history of abusing women and cracking rape jokes. For more context in 2005 Mike Adams at Frontpage discussed the murder Franken thought was so funny. For those who don’t get this “fair mean” joke, Franken is attacking Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Club, which is a humorous dramatic society – one that never invited Franken to join while he was at Harvard. So, naturally, when you...

    Democrats don’t want you to find out—and that ought to be a scandal of its own. ___ Yet Democrats now have meekly and noiselessly retreated, agreeing to let both men speak to the committee in private. Why would they so suddenly be willing to let go of this moment of political opportunity? Fusion GPS. That’s the oppo-research outfit behind the infamous and discredited “Trump dossier,” ginned up by a former British spook. Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson also was supposed to testify at the Grassley hearing, where he might have been asked in public to reveal who hired him to put...
