    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — China's propaganda machine has taken aim at American soybean farmers as part of its high-stakes trade war with the Trump administration. The publication last month of a four-page advertising section in the Des Moines Register opened a new battle line in China's effort to break the administration's resolve China regularly disseminates propaganda in the West through its China Daily newspaper to try to influence public opinion. But the advertorial in the Register was unusual for deploying not a national publication in New York or Washington but a newspaper in the farm state of Iowa. Trump tweeted...

    Wednesday, Senator Dianne Feinstein participated in the one and only debate with state Sen. Kevin de León, her challenger in the California Senate race. The debate was really more of a dual interview but one of the questions raised was whether or not Democrats should reopen the investigation into Justice Brett Kavanaugh if Democrats take the Senate. Feinstein’s initial answer was long-winded and not entirely clear. When the moderator asked her a point black follow up question about re-opening an investigation into Kavanaugh, Feinstein replied, “Oh, I’d be in favor of opening up the allegations, absolutely.”Here’s the debate video...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that if Democrats took control of the Senate following November’s midterm elections, she would be in favor of reopening an investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations levelled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “I’d be in favor of opening an investigation into the allegations,” Feinstein, the ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said during a debate in San Francisco with her challenger, state Sen. Kevin de León. A fellow Democrat, de León emerged from California’s hectic jungle primary system to challenge one of the Senate’s longest tenured members for her seat. Feinstein...

    Senate Democrats on Wednesday boycotted a Judiciary Committee hearing to examine a group of Trump administration nominees, complaining that the hearing shouldn't have been scheduled while the Senate was out of town. Republican Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and Ben Sasse of Nebraska were the only Republicans at the hearing, which was called to consider six of President Trump's judicial nominees. The top Democrat on the panel, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, of California, had a scheduling conflict, a spokeswoman told the Washington Examiner. She called on Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to...
  • Trump, Feinstein feud intensifies over appeals court nominees

    The White House is escalating its feud with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Fresh off the bitter confirmation fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which made Feinstein a top target for President Trump and some Republicans, the administration is pushing forward with an effort to fill vacancies in the circuit courts. The White House announced late last week that Trump intends to nominate individuals for the three California vacancies on the 9th Circuit, moving Republicans closer to their long-held goal of rebalancing the appeals court, which they argue is too liberal and too large. The 9th Circuit, based in San...

    ....On April 29, 2016, when the DNC became aware its servers had been penetrated, an emergency meeting was held between the Chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, DNC’s Chief Executive, Amy Dacey, the DNC’s Technology Director, Andrew Brown, and Michael Sussman, a lawyer for Perkins Coie, a Washington, DC law firm that represented the DNC. Sussman took control of the meeting, setting out the DNC’s agenda when it came to dealing with the cyber attack on its server. The three most important questions, Sussman declared, were what data was accessed, how was it done, and how can it be stopped?...

    For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now.All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to see...

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a recent interview that he hopes somebody runs against President Trump in the 2020 election, and that Trump supporters' continued chants of "lock her up" — typically in reference to Hillary Clinton — are "disturbing." In his retirement interview with C-SPAN, Flake said the chants, which were sparked by Trump's campaign and have continued throughout his presidency, are more concerning than the controversial things Trump says.

    After months of negotiations and delays, the White House is moving to fill California’s three vacancies on the influential 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals — over the strenuous objections of the state’s two Democratic senators. President Trump’s nominees for the appeals court — litigators Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee and Assistant United States Attorney Patrick Bumatay — are all based in Southern California, are prominent members of the conservative Federalist Society, and have worked for Republican administrations. None of the three were approved by Feinstein or Harris via a process known as a “blue slip,” the senators’ offices confirmed...

    The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee blasted the White House Thursday for picking nominees for the West Coast’s appeals court without consulting her, and saying one of the three doesn’t have any judicial experience. President Trump named a new slate of court picks Wednesday, including three judges to sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. But Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California objected, saying she had tried to consult with the White House but was rebuffed. She said she would withhold her blue slip, in a signal that she doesn’t acquiesce to the picks. Blue slips are a...

    Two of California's best-known Democrats are slipping in the polls as the calendar advances closer to Election Day. In fact, both Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein have only single-digit leads over their opponents, the results show. In the race for governor, a Probolsky Research poll, conducted between Aug. 29-Sept. 2, shows Newsom leading Republican businessman John Cox by a mere 5 points, with 17 percent of respondents undecided, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Feinstein faces similar problems, with the poll showing her with only an 8-point advantage over progressive challenger Kevin de León. A quarter of...

    The "Lock her up!" chant reserved for Hillary Clinton at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies during the 2016 presidential campaign was aimed at a new target Tuesday: U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. Before a crowd in Council Bluffs, Iowa, President Trump accused Feinstein of leaking a letter in which Christine Blasey Ford wrote that now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had engaged in sexual misconduct three decades ago. “How about Senator Feinstein. That’s another beauty,” said Trump, who was in Iowa campaigning for Republican candidates ahead of next month's midterm elections. Seconds later, the president's supporters started the familiar “Lock her...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she was “surprised” that President Trump singled her out during a rally in Iowa but called it part of his “technique of division.” “It’s part of a technique of division rather than uniting people in this great country,” Feinstein said on Wednesday asked about the “lock her up” chants. She added that she was “surprised” that Trump “singled me out for a personal letter I received. This wasn’t anything that was covert or classified.” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, has come under fire by Republicans for her handling of the letter from...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday challenged media to investigate how the Democrats handled Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Scarborough argued Ford’s “unsubstantiated allegations” that leaked would “most likely not have made print” five or 10 years ago. “What New York Times reporter, what Washington Post reporter was assigned a story by their editors to go see what really happened with Dianne Feinstein, and asked Dianne Feinstein and her staff the sort of questions that would have happened if the Republican Party had done the same thing. Not one,” stated Scarborough. He...

Tuesday night during a speech in western Iowa, a full half-hour before the president mentioned Hillary Clinton's name. The crowd of about 7,500 was angry at Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who two weeks ago facilitated the public hearing testimony of Christine Blasey Ford against then-future Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Trump rhetorically elbowed Feinstein at...

    A new report shows a Democrat senator contacted a former Feinstein staffer back in 2017, in hopes of continuing an investigation so-called "collusion" between Trump and Russia. The former Feinstein staffer operates a group called "Democracy Integrity Project" which is heavily funded by Soros and has connections with Fusion GPS, as well as dossier author Christopher Steele. The one thing that's still not confirmed is the identity of the senator that reached out to the former Feinstein staffer.

    The narrow confirmation of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend marked a major political victory for President Trump – and the beginning of a new battle for Democrats, who are now shifting their message to threaten possible impeachment against the newest high court justice and question the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself. After a grueling confirmation fight that included graphic sexual misconduct allegations which the nominee denied, Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday on 50-48 vote. His ceremonial swearing-in will be held Monday evening. But as he joins the court, replacing retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, prominent Democrats signal the fight over...
