    Sadly it’s becoming clear that Democrats believe their own ridiculous lies. While Speaking to the Teamsters Union Local 630 in Los Angeles this weekend, Maxine Waters had another public meltdown as she laughably claimed that “It has not been Republicans, it is always Democrats. We’ve been there for you. We’re gonna stay there for you. And damn this president!” Waters went on rambling tirade as she tried to convince the group that the Democrat Party is on the side of working class Americans, as she simultaneously admitted many middle-class Americans have felt abandoned by their representatives in D.C. “We’re in...

    This is news: Summit Ministries has relocated a summer program from Biola University to another state. Why? From the press release: For more than 55 years, Summit Ministries has held conferences at its headquarters in Manitou Springs, Colo., and across the nation, training nearly a half-million young Christians to become leaders in their schools, communities, churches, families, and country. But the group has had to cancel its June 10-23 and June 24-July 7 sessions at Biola University near Los Angeles due to concerns that California will forbid some of what it teaches.At issue is AB2943, a bill recently passed by...
  • Did US Ally Qatar Free Imprisoned Americans in Exchange for Al Qaeda Terrorist?

    Problematic, in a very big way even if the offer was made.Qatar’s ties to Al Qaeda and ISIS aren’t news. They’ve effectively served as intermediaries in everything from ransom exchanges for hostages to Taliban negotiations. But actually trying to secure terrorist swaps for prisoners on their own behalf would have been a new frontier. Before he was released from a U.S. maximum-security prison last week, a confessed al Qaeda sleeper agent was offered up in a potential prisoner swap that would have freed two Americans held abroad.According to two individuals with direct knowledge of the case, the proposition was...

    Former FBI boss James Comey talked with mentor and close friend Robert Mueller within hours after he was fired by President Trump, according to Bureau insiders with direct knowledge of the correspondences. The first conversation between Mueller and his FBI protégé reportedly took place while Comey was traveling home from Los Angeles on a chartered Gulfstream Aerospace commissioned by the Justice Department, according to high-level FBI sources. Incredibly, one week later, Mueller was appointed Special Counsel to take over Comey’s FBI Russia Trump investigation. Neither Comey nor Mueller have publicly disclosed corresponding with each other between the eight days Comey...

    President Trump's absence for the second year in a row from the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner may end up being the least controversial thing about Saturday night's gathering of the White House press corps. Chatter online among journalists and some in the administration's orbit after the event was full of criticism for comedian Michelle Wolf, who was the evening's headliner; criticism and soul-searching about the annual event itself; and an effort by former White House press secretary Sean Spicer to pressure the leadership of the White House Correspondents' Association into answering for Wolf's vulgar, personal jabs leveled primarily at...

    "We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American," WHCA chief says Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, opened the dinner with an address about the core of journalism. "Real news is sometimes happy, heart-warming, or heart-breaking and critical or makes you angry. But we reject efforts — be it anyone, especially our elected officials — to undermine journalism as un-American," Talev said.

    California’s “jungle” primary system has Democrats worried that Republicans could win some of the Golden State’s congressional seats in midterm elections, a top House Democrat said Friday. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., speaking to USA Today, said Democrats have a shot at winning in more than 50 congressional districts nationwide — enough to take control of the House from the GOP. Democrats need to win 24 seats to flip the House, according to the New York Times, while maintaining the 194 seats they currently hold. But California’s primary system, in which the top two vote-getters face off in the...

    A Quinnipiac poll released this week reveals that a majority of Republican voters believe the media is “the enemy of the people.” In a survey of 1,193 registered voters conducted between April 20 and April 24, 51 percent of Republicans said they saw the media as an enemy, while only 37 percent of Republicans said they thought that the media was “an important part of democracy.” Overall, 66 percent of American voters said media is an “important part of democracy,” while 22 percent said they consider it to be an “enemy of the people.”

    Here is all you need to know about the Donald Trump-hating Washington/New York media establishment. While the press was hysterically fixated on porn star Stormy Daniels and her alleged one-nighter with the president a decade ago, it missed the biggest story to come down the pike in months. And that was CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s secret visit to North Korea over the Easter weekend to meet in Pyongyang with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un

    A new California pro-LGBTQ bill that would ban the sale or distribution of materials related to “conversion therapy” easily passed the state’s assembly on Thursday.CBS News affiliate KOVR reported the final tally was 50-14. Assembly Bill 2943 now heads to the Democrat-controlled Senate.The bill would make it an unlawful business practice to engage in any “transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” aimed at “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.” Goods would include any books or written materials, while services would encompass counseling individuals seeking to address same-sex...

    It’s not just Hillary Clinton who can’t quit Russia. The whole Democratic Party keeps going back to 2016. In a move that reeks of desperation, the DNC filed a civil suit Friday against President Trump’s campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks, alleging a vast (right wing!) conspiracy to tip the election to Trump. The suit’s flamboyant charges made headlines, but that only served to obscure the real meaning. Namely, that top Dems are giving up their fantasies that special counsel Robert Mueller will deliver them from political purgatory by getting the goods on Trump. The trashy suit is their way of trying...

    What makes the mayor of highly polluted, crime-ridden, poorly run Los Angeles think he should run the country? With no clear frontrunner, it’s open season among Democrats for 2020. Every day there’s a new contender throwing their hat into the ring (or any other article of clothing that self-identifies as a hat). Stretching to find a candidate is symptomatic of the Democrats’ losses under President Obama: Governors make great presidential nominees, but the Democrats have so few governors left to choose from they have to get creative. So a position that’s getting unusual attention is that of mayor. Last week...

    As an innovator and early adopter of freeways, California became the symbolic capital of car culture. But the ease of movement conferred by the massive postwar freeway building boom was short-lived, turning the dream of car travel into a nightmare of congestion and long commutes. The story of how Californians went from getting around to getting stuck behind the wheel is deeply entwined with the history of the urban freeway, an enterprise that advanced earlier and on a larger scale here than anywhere else in the country. Half a century ago, there was reason for optimism about cars. Los Angeles...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles this week struck down the Trump administration’s policy of denying certain Department of Justice law enforcement grants to cities that adopt “sanctuary” policies and refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Los Angeles Times reports: U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent, nationwide ban against a Justice Department policy that gave an edge to obliging police departments applying for a community policing grant program. In doing so, Real dealt a legal setback to the Trump administration in its aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal immigration and to force compliance from law enforcement...
