  • The Man Who Wasn't There: Biden Says He Was Vice President When Parkland Shooting Happened

    Does former Vice President Joe Biden know what year we’re in right now? Does he remember what he’s eaten for breakfast? I only ask because he’s capped off this week with two gaffes, both equally terrible. Leah wrote about his remarks about poor kids, where he said, “We should challenge students in these schools and have advanced placement programs in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids." And now, he swears he was vice president when the tragic Parkland shooting happened…in...

    Show no mercy for you shall receive none and never, ever think that Democrats are your friends; they’re not. They’re the folks who will shank you at the earliest opportunity. The inherent rot of their character, the condescension, and aura of moral superiority they carry, despite being complete and total idiots, is absolutely nauseating. They hate America. They hate us. There is nothing that we share in common. Maybe a tax form ever April, but that’s about it. We do indeed have aliens in America. And these aliens, these disgusting progressive creatures, are not done with Supreme Court Justice Brett...

    The Portland Herald Press reports that pro-life activists are mobilizing in an effort to collect 63,067 valid signatures of Maine in order to prevent two controversial laws which legalize doctor-assisted suicide as well as require private insurers and taxpayer-funded Medicaid to pay for abortions from taking effect in September. Carroll Conley, executive director of the Christian Civic League of Maine, told the paper that for the past two weeks the group has been working with Catholic and evangelical leaders around the state in order to obtain the signatures before and after masses and services. According to the paper, "the Christian...

    Liberals are mad that SoulCycle founder Stephen Ross and Miami Dolphins owner Joe Farrell are hosting fundraisers for President Trump. There was a deluge of tweets from those saying they were canceling their SoulCycle memberships, though the establishment doesn’t offer them. This knee-jerk reaction to simply boycott things because you don’t like Trump is a common occurrence ever since the 2016 election. Liberal meltdowns are always epic to watch. Too bad; he’s president. We won. You lost. And as the Democratic field tears each other apart, he can fill his war chest—and he has. In these dual fundraisers, the...
  • Dayton shooter Connor Betts’ slain sister was a transgender man: report

    The “sister” of the Dayton, Ohio, shooter who was killed during the attack identified as a transgender guy — although his family had no idea, according to a report and some of his own social media posts. Connor Betts’ 22-year-old sibling was named by authorities as Megan Betts in the days after the mass shooting, with cops releasing a statement saying relatives had lost “a daughter.” But he apparently went by the name Jordan Cofer, and identified as a male, although he was only “out” to a small circle of friends, according to Splinter News, which spoke to several of...

    Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin ceremonially signed into law four pieces of pro-life legislation as an appeals court heard a challenge brought by the ACLU regarding a state abortion safety law. On Thursday, Bevin signed SB 9, the Heartbeat Bill, which bans an abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected; SB 50, a measure that requires doctors to provide abortion pill patients with information regarding the reversal of the effects of the drug; HB 5, which bans abortion based on sex, race, or perceived disability of the unborn child; and HB 148, a measure that would ban abortion entirely in...

    New video footage shows presidential frontrunner Joe Biden forcefully grabbing a young woman by the arm at the Iowa State Fair in response to the woman asking Biden how many genders there are. The clip shows ‘Katie’ – a college student in Iowa walking up to Biden and asking him, “How many genders are there?” “Pardon me?” responds Biden, before Katie repeats the question. “How many genders are there?” “There are at least three,” responds Biden. “What are they?” asks Katie. “Don’t play games with me kid,” responds Biden. The video then shows Biden grabbing Katie by the arm, turning...

    WASHINGTON — Moving ahead despite objections, the Trump administration on Friday set a timetable for federally funded family clinics to comply with a new rule that bars them from referring women for abortions. The move is part of a series of efforts to remake government policy on reproductive health to please conservatives who are a key part of President Donald Trump’s political base. Religious conservatives see the family planning program as providing an indirect subsidy to Planned Parenthood, a major abortion provider.

    (Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today released 34 pages of “302” report material from FBI interviews with Bruce Ohr, who was removed from his position as U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General in December 2017. The newly declassified documents were produced to Judicial Watch this evening. These documents were obtained in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department for failing to respond to an August 6, 2018 FOIA request seeking Form 302s for a number of interviews with Ohr concerning his interactions with Steele (Judicial Watch v U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02107)).

    Former Miss Iraq Sarah Idan provoked the criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday after news surfaced that she distanced herself from the freshman Democrat from Minnesota in an interview. "Ilhan Omar does not represent me as a Muslim -- does not represent millions of Muslims in the Middle East," Idan told "The Sara Carter Show." Those comments prompted Omar to stress that she wasn't the beauty queen's representative since she didn't live in her congressional district. "Hey, I might be wrong but I don’t think you are a #MN05 resident and like that makes be not your representative," Omar...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday asked President Trump to call the Senate back into session for a vote on gun control measures that have already passed the House in the wake of two mass shootings last weekend. “It is with deep sadness and great urgency that I write following the horrific loss of life that occurred in Gilroy, El Paso, Dayton and Chicago, after which you said, ‘I think background checks are important. I don't want to put guns into the hands of mentally unstable or people with rage or hate, sick people. I'm all in favor of...

    Texas Representative Joaquin Castro's stunt he pulled this week by shining a spotlight on San Antonio citizens and businesses who donated to President Donald J. Trump backfired spectacularly as he was harangued for the obvious danger and division his tweets promoted. But, unfortunately for Rep. Castro, the ire did not come just from conservatives and Trump supporters, but also his own donors. Apparently, the list of MAGA supporters also included folks who gave to Castro's campaign as well. On Sunday night, Rep. Castro tweeted, "Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner...

The Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration issued a warning on Wednesday highlighting threats to commercial vessels posed by Iran.

    It’s no shocker that President Trump is on the way to a second term if this keeps up. Democrats are embracing immensely unpopular policy positions on health care and immigration. It’s a full-blown clown show. Democrats want open borders. Sorry, when you push decriminalizing border crossings and giving health care to illegal aliens, that’s open borders and something that a supermajority of Americans oppose. They also oppose Medicare for All if it replaces private insurance, which it will. There’s no getting around that either. Hundreds of millions of plans will be gutted. The debate on the Left is whether to...
