    RUSH: Now, on this White-House-is-a-dump business, I’ve never been to Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The story is at TheHill.com: Trump has reportedly denounced his White House digs, telling members at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club that the White House is “a real dump.” Sports Illustrated has also written the story. I just can tell you this. I was at the White House, Kathryn and I were at the White House on March 23rd for about five hours. We arrived at five p.m, in time to see a meeting that Trump was having with The Tuesday Group,...

    Republicans are questioning their ability to govern following seven months of constant turmoil capped by the dramatic failure in the Senate to advance ObamaCare repeal. ... In public, Republican lawmakers for the most part have sought to avoid blaming the steady stream of White House distractions and controversies for their legislative record. Privately, staff and members are more forthcoming. ... "We're horrified by the drama coming out of the White House," said a Republican senator who requested anonymity to comment frankly on the administration.

    Great news, Republicans! Hillary Clinton, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, still refuses to go quietly into that good night. Over the weekend, she was letting it be known to any idiot who still listens to her – which includes the majority of the voter base for the Democrat Party – that she plans to take a “major role” in killing…errrr, ummm…”helping” Democrat congressional candidates get slaughtered by….errrrr, ummmm….”defeat” Republicans and turn enough GOP districts to regain control of the House of Representatives. (Boy, it was hard to type that with a straight face.) Yes, friends, the very worst, least...
  • Comey acted on Russian intel known to be fake: report

    Former FBI Director James Comey acted on key information created by Russian intelligence in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that he knew to be fake, CNN reported Friday. Unidentified officials told CNN that Comey feared that if the information became public it would undermine the investigation as well as the Justice Department itself. The false information reportedly spurred the then-FBI chief to publicly declare last summer that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was over. Meanwhile, Comey also said that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.
  • America’s biggest enemy isn’t North Korea or Iran — it’s Steve Bannon

    The reality TV breakout hit of the season — White House Family Feud, starring Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon — is far from over. After the media frenzy of the last two weeks, Bannon’s been cut down to size, and removed from the National Security Council. Still, he remains a dangerous figure. Bannon reportedly works 18-hour days behind the scenes to promote a far-right, extremist, white nationalist agenda. He is still officially Trump’s “chief strategic adviser,” backed by insiders like Attorney General Jeff Sessions, mega-donors like Rebekah Mercer, and many alt-right leaders (who have made personal and political...

    There was a great commotion in central London last night. A police helicopter hovered over The Spectator‘s office making a din, police sirens sounded and thudding music rattled the windows. I found out why when I left the office and walked via Parliament Square to Whitehall.There was an anti-Trump protest outside Parliament – #stoptrump was the theme – coinciding with the (non-binding and pointless) debate inside Westminster Hall, about President Trump’s state visit to the UK later this year. The protest was a very slick affair. There was a massive TV screen broadcasting anti-Trump videos, and speeches blared out over a speaker...

    Ted Cruz is considering rescinding his reluctant endorsement of Donald Trump, according to multiple reports. A Ted Cruz aide confirmed the talk to ABC News, and a source gave similar intel to CNN. BuzzFeed News reported that the Cruz camp said there's "nothing to share right now." Trump earned a hard-fought endorsement from Cruz about two weeks ago. The Texas senator said the Supreme Court and other policy issues superseded his own personal disagreements with Trump. In the wake of leaked audio of Trump's lewd comments about women, Cruz tweeted Friday that the remarks were "disturbing and inappropriate."

    Remember the discussions of “optics” and trying to manufacture the perception of support for Hillary Clinton? It’s all a pretense; a fraud; a corporate media ruse. Well, a great example comes today from “The Hill”, an on-line media outlet promoting the speech of candidate Clinton. Notice anything, well, ‘odd’ about the picture: It’s a 100% photoshopped image (link) assembling multiple rally crowd pictures to give the impression of Hillary Clinton in St. Petersburg. Hillary is holding a rally at the St. Pete Colliseum in down town St. Petersburg. Located at 353 4th Ave North, the Coliseum venue holds approximately 4,000...

    Internal documents show Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's campaign advisers are projecting that the billionaire businessman will secure more than 1,400 delegates at the Republican National Convention in July, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. That total greatly exceeds the 1,237 delegates necessary to secure the nomination on the first ballot. The projection was in an internal campaign memo sent to Trump surrogates Tuesday night, after Trump secured a convincing win in the New York primary. It called the front-runner's win in New York "YUGE" and included talking points to use in media interviews. It advised the surrogates to talk about...

    Some U.S. intelligence officials are worried about providing a routine intelligence briefing to Donald Trump once he becomes the official Republican presidential nominee, according to a report. Eight senior security officials told Reuters they were concerned that Trump's "shoot from the hip" style could pose national security risks, as they prepare to give him a routine pre-election briefing for presidential nominees. They also cited his lack of foreign policy experience, and his little known team of foreign policy advisers. "People are very nervous," one senior U.S. security official said. However, the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss a political domestic...

    Many publications are falsely claiming Trump is totally ignorant and blank on whether Britain should leave the EU or not ("Brexit"). The logic is that Trump saying "huh"? to a single word verbal question (that might not have been enunciated well or heard clearly with Trump's 69 year old hearing) is proof of ignorance on the subject, showing a lack of foreign policy concern and awareness. Yet a 10 second google search reveals that Trump has commented on "Brexit" several times in the recent past. It seems a 10 second net search is too high of a journalism standard when...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is coming under heavy pressure inside and outside the Beltway to change his mind and run for reelection to the Senate.For Senate GOP leaders, the move is a political no-brainer. ADVERTISEMENT Rubio is a known quantity and an able fundraiser, and they believe he represents their best shot at keeping Florida’s Senate seat in the Republican column.For Rubio the question is tougher.Running for the Senate would amount to a significant political u-turn. He’s repeatedly railed against the ineffectiveness of the upper chamber and brushed aside questions about his lax attendance record.He could also be risking his...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Thursday slammed Hillary Clinton, calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to "stop lying" about her personal email account. “It’s pretty remarkable,” he said on "Morning Joe" of Clinton’s response to a watchdog report that found Clinton and her top aides did not comply with policy while she served as secretary of State. “I don’t understand why you put out a statement like that,” Scarborough added. "Stop lying, stop digging. “'I screwed up. I’m terribly sorry,'" he offered as alternate responses. "'I hope the American people will forgive me and I hope they will let us...

    Greg Nash Mitt Romney, the GOP’s 2012 nominee, is among those courting prospects for a possible third-party bid to keep Donald Trump from the White House, according to a Washington Post report . Among those prospects are Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), one of Trump’s most vocal Republican critics, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who suspended his presidential campaign in early May. Kasich’s chief strategist John Weaver said the governor isn’t interested in running an an independent. A Sasse spokesman declined to comment. But it’s not looking to good for a late in the game third-party bid, according to the...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) on Sunday slammed Republicans who have complained about an executive order he signed extending the right to vote in his state to convicted felons who have served their sentences. "Well, I would tell the Republicans, 'Quit complaining and go out and earn these folks' right to vote for you. Go out and talk to them,' " he said in response to a question about people saying his order was an election-year ploy to help Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.

    The presidential primary has been a wrenching experience for the GOP so far — and it’s about to get even worse. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich have all backed away from their pledge to support the party's eventual nominee, foreshadowing a fight at the convention and beyond that could cleave the GOP into warring factions.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has secured more than half of the delegates needed to win the nomination, but he will need to pick up his pace to clinch 1,237 delegates and avoid a contested convention. Trump’s strong performance in the Tuesday night primaries will make it tough for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to catch him. He has secured 621 delegates, according to The Associated Press's projections as of 8:00 a.m. Wednesday, compared to 396 for Cruz and 138 for Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Those three men are now the only active GOP candidates. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) suspended his...
