    It's time for all Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, to come together and support our president. Whether you've been for or against him, it's time to admit, he's paid his dues. He's walked the walk. Like Ronald Reagan, he's been true to his promises and stayed the coarse, despite the daily onslaught of slings and arrows coming from all sides. Whether you're that fair weather, mostly street dumb fan Ann Coulter, who called him "a lunatic" and "dumb" because he didn't call for a National Emergency months ago, or those whom we cherish, like Laura Ingraham and Rush who...

    CHICAGO -- Chicago police confirmed Thursday that detectives are talking to two persons of interest in connection with the alleged attack on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett. Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of "Empire." A source familiar with the investigation told the ABC7 I-Team that Smollett failed to appear for an interview with detectives earlier Thursday. A source briefed on the Smollett investigation confirmed to ABC News that Chicago police are questioning the two persons of interest -- one...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not handle President Donald Trump’s mockery of her controversial “Green New Deal” and ripped into him for his comments during a rally. The New York Democrat fired back at the president after he ridiculed the proposal during a rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday where he called it a “massive government takeover that would destroy the incredible economic gains” made in the nation. “It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark,” Trump said. “I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car or taking away your airplane flights....

    "Just 90 miles from here in 1619, the first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Ole Point Comfort," Northam said Embattled Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam (D-VA), referred to people that came to America as slaves from Africa as “indentured servants from Africa” during an interview with CBS News’ Gayle King on Sunday. Northam sat down with King for his first interview since the Virginian-Pilot published a photo from Northam’s medical school yearbook showing “two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.” King asked...

  • GOP Secret Weapon: Two Years Of Democrats’ Exposing Their Radicalism

    For the next 22 months, Americans will be treated to possibly the most wildly different worldviews between the major parties in American history. And it is going to be ugly. One side, the Democrats, are trapped in an ever-increasing race to the bottom, and away from traditional America — sprinting away even the Democrats of a mere 20 years ago. They are, and will be, incapable of loudly and proudly proclaiming their radicalism in a way even the media will not be able to shield them from. If they will cheer during a public legislative session for the most extremist...
  • Economic Impact Of Super Bowl Dwarfs That Of Government Shutdown

    02/04/2019 6:18:08 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 9 replies
    It does sometimes feel as though many Americans actually think the success of the American economy is due to the behemoth in Washington, D.C., rather than in spite of it. When Friday’s job’s numbers came out, they gobsmacked the media and economic experts, who were expecting 170,000 at the top end and were greeted with 304,000. But those figures were considerably less surprising to those of us who view the government as a hindrance to private enterprise and economic well-being — not an indispensable necessity. Now an additional data point comes courtesy of Americans’ spending on last night’s Super Bowl...

    Washington (CNN)Virginia GOP Speaker Kirk Cox expressed skepticism on Monday that the legislature should try to force Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam out of office, highlighting a potential constitutional impasse the commonwealth could face should Northam decline to step down. "I think there's a rightful hesitation about removal from office, because obviously you have to consider that to some degree you're overturning an election," Cox said. "I think the constitutional provisions are very specific on the succession of office. It really does call for mental or physical incapacitation. That's what it was meant to do." Pressure has grown on Northam to...

    Lauretta wrote about this trip-up this morning. We all saw New York’s abortion bill that legalized this heinous procedure through nine months is reared its ugly head here in Virginia. It was briefly considered in the House of Delegates, which rejected the legislation, but Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam decided to offer his views about it: Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) made some startling remarks defending allowing an infant born alive to die on WTOP Wednesday when asked about the debate over Virginia House of Delegates member Kathy Tran’s (D-Fairfax) bill that would allow an abortion even after the woman goes into...

    I had some thoughts about walls. Kind of like the front door of my house. You don't just walk into my house; you come to the front door and knock. I'll go to the door and decide whether I even want to talk to you. If I do, we'll talk -- through the door. If I decide I want to let you in, I will -- otherwise, I won't. Some thing with this county. This is our COUNTRY. You don't just walk into this country. You want in? There are procedures you must follow. And walls. Walls are immoral? Anyone...

    With all this talk about funding the wall, I thought that it would be fun to see what happened to all that money that Obama gave away to everyone else. He gave money to everyone, if you recall. He gave money to South Korea. He gave money to Iran. He gave money to the PLA. He gave money to Zambia. He gave money to the UN. He gave money to every single social cause on the planet, and then some more just to rub it in the faces of his distractors. Now, Donald Trump is asking for $7 for a...
