    “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this.” President Donald Trump’s estranged niece Mary claimed he paid his old friend Joe Shapiro to take his SAT test. Pam Shriver, a former tennis pro and Shapiro’s widow, hit back at Mary’s accusations. The widow of the man who Mary Trump alleges took the SAT test for @realDonaldTrump says her husband didn't meet Donald Trump until...

    HOUSTON, Texas -- Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announced on Wednesday that the city has canceled its contract with the GOP convention, which was scheduled at the George R. Brown Convention Center on July 16. "Look, these are some very serious times, and the safety of the people attending the convention, the employees, their family members, the people in the city of Houston, have their public health concerns," Turner said. "First responders, police, fire, and municipal workers will all be in contact or in close proximity to this indoor gathering. Simply, the public health concerns outweighed anything else."

    If you were ever curious and wanted to be a fly on the wall in a forum with some of the leaders of unorganized militia groups in these United States, then this is for you. There is an essay being circulated within militia circles, and I thought it was just too good not to let you peak into the Smokey Back room of what is being said, doubly so from the comments it has received. This comes from a militia leader, addressing everyone in open forum. I obtained permission to repost here. I did not edit it. It does contain...

    “Let’s say he [Biden] wins this November… that means decades will pass before we can see these documents,” Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update on Judicial Watch’s lawsuit for the ex-VP’s records. Judicial Watch is “in court right now in Delaware to find out the full truth about Biden’s record as US senator,” Fitton states. Judicial Watch first requested the documents through an April 30, 2020 FOIA request, but was met with resistance from the University of Delaware, where the ex-senator’s records are held. The state university stated that “it will not release the records until two years after...

    Even in perfect conditions with teleprompters to read from, Joe Biden still forgets what he's talking about. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is barely there. Appearing virtually at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' 2020 Virtual Political Conference on Wednesday, Biden appeared to be reading from a teleprompter when he repeatedly lost his train of thought.

    BOSTON (CBS) – As Massachusetts’ reopening phases set some parts of life back in motion slowly, certain agencies are in high speed making up for lost time.

There is a mailing delay for registrations renewed online, by phone, or by mail beginning on 5/22/20. Because of the pandemic, there are more customers renewing by mail and online, so the number of transactions exceeded projected stock levels. Registrations renewed between 5/22 and 6/30 should arrive with decal by 7/15.

This circus of incompetence, corruption and cruelty will end. When it does, the men and women in Trump’s Republican Party will come to you, telling you they can repair the damage he’s done. They’ll beg you to forgive their votes to exonerate Trump from his crimes, ask you to forgive their silence, their cowardice and...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia will waive all protest-related code violation notices issued from demonstrations between May 30 and June 30, Mayor Jim Kenney said Wednesday. The approved Law Department and Office of Administrative Review recommendation include disorderly conduct, failure to disperse, curfew violations and related offenses. More than 750 citations were issued. “My decision to wave these violations is not a statement on the validity of the individual citations,” Kenney said in a statement. “Rather, it is a recognition of the core concerns that caused thousands to demonstrate on the streets of Philadelphia. In waiving these notices, I recognize that...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros is on pace to double his 2016 election spending as he works to oust President Donald Trump, public records show. Soros's big investments in the 2020 race have gone into the coffers of the Democracy PAC, a super PAC that passes money to other liberal PACs working to defeat Trump and congressional Republicans. The super PAC has received $40 million—double the $20 million Soros spent on Democratic efforts during the 2016 election cycle—from both Soros and a nonprofit in his sprawling network. The megadonor's torrent of spending highlights the extent to which liberal donors are committed...
