    WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez toppled a well-established Democratic leader in a stunning primary upset last year — now she's looking to spur others to do the same. In a promotional video for Justice Democrats, the grassroots group that backed Ocasio-Cortez's 2018 upstart run against Joe Crowley, a 10-term incumbent, as well as Rep. Ayanna Pressley's successful challenge to Mike Capuano in Massachusetts, Ocasio-Cortez shares lessons from her campaign to help boost a new recruitment drive for progressive insurgents called #OurTime. Already, the group is publicly searching for a primary challenger to centrist Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas. Cuellar has defended...
  • Democrats want to use obscure law to grab Donald Trump's tax returns

    Soon after the Democrats take control of the House next year, Rep. Richard Neal, who will be the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, expects to send a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin requesting copies of Donald Trump's returns. He doesn't expect to get them. At least, not right away. A 1924 federal law - 26 U.S. Code § 6103 - mandates that the Treasury secretary "shall furnish" the tax returns of any individual for private review by the chairmen of the House and Senate tax committees. Committee sources could find no evidence that it had ever...

    Hostilities between left and right grow daily in the United States. All it takes is a brief glance at history to see that these hostilities could eventually devolve into civil war. Both sides are beginning to realize this. However, one side seems much more confident in its ability to win such a conflict. After all, one side has amassed more personal firearms than any other population on earth. But I believe they are underestimating the formidability of their opponents. About 200 years ago, the great military strategist Carl von Clausewitz noticed that the constant evolution of war technology meant a...

    Leave it to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats to ride a dead horse going into assuming the House majority. According to the Speaker-presumptive Pelosi, Democrats are aiming at the right of citizens to keep and bear arms almost immediately when the new session begins by creating a mandatory “universal background check” for all gun sales. Despite the federal government already infringing on the Second Amendment by implementing unconstitutional background checks for gun sales, Democrats can’t resist but to somehow put their spin on something that already exists. ... However, as many in the alternative media and the National Rifle Association...

    One of the first two Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress took a snide dig on Twitter at Vice President Pence for sitting with eyes closed during a heated Oval Office meeting, posting a photo with the caption, “Jesus take the wheel!” — and the other incoming Muslim congresswoman applauded the insult. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) tweet ended with the hashtag #BorderWall, a reference to the contentious issue discussed during President Trump’s meeting Tuesday with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) The second Muslim woman elected to the House, Palestinian-American Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib,...
  • Is Team Trump ready for Pelosi's 'death by a thousand cuts'?

    The Trump administration is preparing for House Democrats to be a constant thorn in its side for the for the next two years, launching investigations into the president, his family, and members of his administration. House Republicans have been able to shield the president from inquiring Democratic minds. But now that the House is changing hands, the president's allies will have less power to stop Democrats, which signals trouble for the Trump administration. Armed with congressional subpoena power, House Democrats are expected to investigate everything from the president's real-estate holdings and unreleased tax returns to his hush-money payment to porn...

    California looks like a lost cause for Republicans, given how Democrats clinched the midterm with a series of new laws.  Maybe no big deal, given that California has been a solid blue state for something like 20 years.  But are Americans aware of the potential for California vote-rigging to come to their states, making them so blue that no conservative will ever be able to win an election? A California political operative, Edward Ring, writing in American Greatness, lays out the coming spectacle: Three laws in particular combined to stack the deck against Republicans.  First came the Motor Voter law.  This meant that as soon...

    Vote Fraud: Immediately following the midterm elections last month, several Republican candidates held comfortable leads in reliably red districts in the otherwise deep blue state of California. But within a few weeks, all of them had lost to their Democratic challenger. “Despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates in California saw their advantage shrink, and then disappear, as late-arriving Democratic votes were counted in the weeks following the election,” Fox News reported.

    Nietzsche cautioned those who fight monsters to take care lest they become monsters themselves. He should have also warned those pretending to fight monsters, whose imagined enemies are really projections of their own evils. Consider Antifa, those self-styled anti-fascists who recently made headlines for harassing the family of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. The paucity of actual Nazis in this country would seem to make Antifa superfluous, but they have a talent for detecting fascists everywhere. Having determined that practically everything and everyone (themselves excepted) is fascist, they spend their free time going about in black shirts smashing things and...
  • Matt Gaetz: Democrats 'Stress-Testing Elections' to 'Steal 2020'

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow that Democrats are “stress-testing the integrity of our election system” to build a “road-map on how to steal the election from Donald Trump in 2020,” offering his remarks on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily. Gaetz discussed ostensible vote recount efforts in Florida: “The law requires certain reporting and transparency to occur regarding who voted, when they voted, and by what means they voted. That transparency isn’t just to make us feel better, it’s the kryptonite to fraud, because if we know how people are voting you’re able to triangulate against any...

    Police released photos of two teens they believe drew swastikas on a Brooklyn Heights block the night before Halloween. BROOKLYN HEIGHTS -- Police have identified two suspects who allegedly drew swastikas and other hate messages on a quiet Brooklyn Height block the night before Halloween. Two men scrawled their hate-filled messages on a garage door and several homes on Garden Place between Joralemon and State streets at about 9:35 p.m. on Oct. 30, police said. Police released photos of two approximately 18-year-old suspects on Saturday. This act of vandalism was just one of several anti-semitic acts to occur in Brooklyn...

    Democrats in tough Senate races around the country are throwing their party under the bus as they seek to pull out victories in red states won just two years ago by President Trump. In Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) has a radio ad declaring she’s “not one of those crazy Democrats.” She’s in a razor-tight race against Josh Hawley, the state’s attorney general. In Montana, Sen. Jon Tester (D), whose race against Republican Matt Rosendale has tightened considerably, told The Hill that Democrats “botched” the debate over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. He also criticized Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D)...

    Former President Barack Obama is hitting the campaign trail in the final days before the midterm elections, stumping for Democratic candidates in critical races in states such as Illinois, Georgia and Florida. Obama has ramped up his campaign appearances in recent weeks. The case Obama is making is somewhat similar to one that President Trump has made in his rallies, on the importance of voting in the midterm elections even though neither man is on the ballot. It's not unusual for former presidents to make campaign appearances after their tenure. But Obama is campaigning against Mr. Trump's agenda and Republican...

    Popular CNBC personality Jim Cramer said Tuesday that Jerome Powell’s determination to keep raising interest rates may be a signal that the Fed chairman wants to undermine President Donald Trump’s agenda. “Maybe he wants Trump to lose,” Cramer said on the financial news networks’ “Squawk on the Street” program. Cramer has been saying for several weeks that the Fed should halt rate hikes after December. The Fed has hiked rates three times this year and is widely expected to hike rates again at its December meeting. The Fed’s projections show central bankers expect to keep raising rates in 2019.

    Democrat strategists are now publicly admitting that the Senate Democrats’ mistreatment of now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh harmed their chances in the midterm elections. The damage hit both their once-long-shot-but-now-virtually-non-existent odds at retaking the Senate and their very real shot at retaking the House. “The Kavanaugh hearings did set us back, but it depended on geography,” Democrat pollster Ben Tulchin said in an on-record quote to Politico for a piece published Tuesday. Tulchin argued that Democrats were hurt in rural and suburban areas by the way they treated Kavanaugh, while bolstered in inner cities they were already set to...
