    A Bronx Republican who blames Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for scuttling the Amazon deal says she plans to run against the Democrat next year as a pro-jobs candidate. “She chose ideology over paychecks,” said Ruth Papazian, noting that Amazon vowed to create 25,000 jobs before pulling out of its deal to open a campus in Queens. “People need jobs. We don’t have economic diversity in the outer boroughs.” Papazian, 61, a lifelong Bronx resident and medical journalist, has met with GOP officials who have encouraged her to enter what would be an uphill race. A daughter of Egyptian immigrants, Papazian said...

    All of a sudden, its popular to be progressive. The unexpectedly competitive Democratic primary of 2016, pitting Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders, quickly became a battle of "progressives" versus "progressives who get things done." And in the Democrats search for identity following Clintons soul-crushing general election loss to Donald Trump, Democratic candidates at all levels throughout the 2018 election cycle wore the progressive badge, even if their definition of "progressive" was sometimes rather ambiguous. Now, theres a Democratic majority in Congress, and along with it a diverse class of new lawmakers proposing an agenda which is resolutely radical by the...

    More than a dozen Republican senators introduced legislation on Tuesday that would make it easier for Congress to terminate future national emergency declarations, days before the chamber will vote on President Trump's. The legislation, spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), would require that Congress pass a resolution extending an emergency declaration after 30 days for it to continue, otherwise it would be terminated. “If Congress is troubled by recent emergency declarations made pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, they only have themselves to blame. Congress gave these legislative powers away in 1976 and it is far past time that we...

    The is a lot of competition for the title, but Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Jihad) is making a strong case for herself as the most disgusting member of Congress. During the public testimony by Michael Cohen, she dehumanized a black woman who was sitting behind Rep. Mark meadows, calling her a “prop” – an infamy that denies the possibility of human agency to a black woman who disagrees with her. You see, in this worldview, black people are so stupid that they can’t come to their own political conclusions, and must be pawns of white people if they disagree with...

    Tea Party Republicans are getting tired of the California GOP. Coming off a devastating performance in the midterms, some Republicans in California are calling for a full embrace of President Donald Trump, even at a time when the president has contributed to historic Democratic victories across the state. Loyalists blame “the establishment” for the losses and demand the party move in a more pro-Trump direction. That’s why California’s Tea Party Caucus is hosting a “Build the Wall Dinner” on Saturday. The sold-out 7 p.m. event will be held at the Claim Jumper restaurant — just a couple blocks away from...

    Dawn Marie Addiego has served in the state Senate since 2010. (Courtesy) Republicans' power in New Jersey just shrunk again. In a rare and unexpected move, longtime Republican state Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego announced Monday she is switching parties and becoming a Democrat. “As gridlock in Washington dominates the news, it has become increasingly clear that in order to effect change you have to be part of the discussion and not on the outside looking in,” Addiego, who has represented South Jersey’s 8th District since 2010, said in a statement. “The people of the 8th District did not elect me...

    The United States and its southwest tight and shale oil has changed from dependence on world oil to domination. News of the size of oil reserves in the Delaware Basin (New Mexico’s share of the Permian) while OPEC was deciding how many barrels it will cut from the world market to lift prices caused epic confusion — and revelations of how little “authorities” and the media understand petroleum economics. The New Mexico media, which relies mainly on interviews with petroleum industry spokespersons, got it wrong.

In addition to being tired around 10:30 or so I also had zero interest in watching any of the network buffoons assembled on various rooftops and concrete canyons of New York City waiting on the drop of a crystal ball.

Finally, they’re back in the underdog position they’re so fond of and comfortable with.Republicans have proved themselves useless in advancing their own agenda. Take Michigan for example: our supreme RINO governor Rick Synder will be leaving office at the end of an 8 year run having done nothing other than sign a right to work bill into law while also expanding Michigan’s Medicaid under Obama’s “Affordable...

    JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican Bart LeBon has won an Alaska state House race by one vote after a ballot recount, officials said. Before Friday’s recount, LeBon and Democrat Kathryn Dodge were tied with 2,661 votes apiece. Recount results showed LeBon with 2,663 votes while Dodge had 2,662 votes, after LeBon picked up two votes and Dodge picked up one, according to the Alaska Division of Elections. A much talked about mystery ballot found weeks ago on a table in a voting precinct ended up playing no role in the race outcome. The ballot was tossed Friday after officials said it...

    I believe that Donald Trump will be the last Republican president many of us will ever see in our lifetimes. We hope that he will serve two terms, but even that is not a given, despite his popularity both personally and of his MAGA agenda. I’ll call it the three D’s, in honor of Trump’s first name Donald – demeanor, demographics, and deception. (snip)...In other words, Trump is a one-off, an exception. Unlike Obama, Trump is the one we have been waiting for, after a string of wet noodles named Bush, Romney, McCain, and Ryan to name a few. But...

    After heavy spending by both sides of the issue, gun control proponents picked up seats in House midterm races as gun rights advocates lost ground. Based on House voting records tracked by the National Rifle Association, more than two dozen gun rights proponents won't be returning to Congress. Meanwhile, House Democrats expanded the number of gun control advocates in their caucus. The new majority includes dozens of candidates who support gun control, including Lucy McBath in Georgia, whose 17-year-old son was fatally shot in 2012 and who made gun violence the centerpiece of her campaign. Sixty-one percent of voters who...

    After Pharrell, Rihanna has objected to US President Donald Trump using her music at his campaign rallies ahead of the midterms. The singer took to Twitter to protest after she learnt that her hit track "Don't Stop the Music" was reportedly played at a campaign rally Sunday for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Rihanna was tipped off by Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker. "(Neither) me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies. Thanks for the heads up Philip (sic)!" she tweeted her reply to Rucker. The development...

    Three days before the election in 2016 every major pollster in the nation predicted Hillary Clinton would be the next President of the United States. Three days before the election in 2016 President Trump was at that time as risky a bet for conservatives & Republicans as he was for working class Democrats. They had all been let down by an establishment system that claimed to put them first but had seldom delivered in the previous number of years. Three days before the election in 2016 nearly every major media pundit believed the never-Trump split in the Republican Party would...
