    Self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced on Twitter late Tuesday that she will join California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters on the influential House Financial Services Committee, which oversees Wall Street and the housing industry. California Rep. Katie Porter, Michigan's Rashida Tlaib, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley have also reportedly been tapped for the committee by Democratic House leaders, and a vote finalizing their appointments is expected within days.

    @RandPaul I agree with @realDonaldTrump! It’s time to declare victory in Afghanistan and bring our troops home. We spend $46 BILLION a year in Afghanistan! How about we take that money and build roads and bridges and strengthen border security here in America? #AmericaFirst

    President Trump on Monday denied that he has been trying to conceal details about his discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin after a pair of explosive press reports over the weekend. "I never worked for Russia," Trump told reporters. "It's a disgrace that you even asked that question because it's a whole big fat hoax. It's just a hoax." Trump also said he doesn't know anything about what happened to the notes taken by an interpreter when he met with Putin last summer in Finland or after other meetings with the Russian leader. The Washington Post reported that Trump has...
  • Trump mocks: Why would I expand energy production and hurt Russia if I 'worked for Kremlin?'

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 14, 2019 07:46 AM | Katelyn Caralle
    President Trump on Monday asked why he would hurt Russia by expanding U.S. energy production if he was in cahoots with the Kremlin, as most Democrats suspect. “‘Gas prices drop across the United States because President Trump has deregulated Energy and we are now producing a great deal more oil than ever before.’ @foxandfriends But this is bad news for Russia, why would President Trump do such a thing? Thought he worked for Kremlin?” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday morning. On Friday, the New York Times reported that the FBI opened an investigation into whether President Trump was working with...

    Now it is becoming clear why Facebook and Twitter have for so long been harassing, shadowbanning, and blocking foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression. Journalist Jordan Schachtel revealed in Conservative Review Tuesday that “the Hamas-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is best known as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history, appears to have access to high-ranking Facebook and Twitter executives and has communicated with these individuals about who should be allowed to stay on their platforms.” This doesn’t come as any surprise given the eagerness of both Facebook and Twitter to...

    Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter Baby Prattle: Twitter talk, often as not so much online baby prattle, is destined to come ricocheting back on rookie New York rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who fired off a juvenile Twitter response: ‘New party, who dis?’ after 76-year-old Joe Lieberman made it known in a Fox Business Network interview that he feared her brand of high-tax socialism could doom the party’s chances for long-term dominance in Congress. When you’re 29-going-on18 and your critic is 76 years old, the pickings to go after him are easy.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday floated the possibility of renewing his demand to subpoena the translator present during a July 2018 meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreter’s notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin," Schiff tweeted. "The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now?" ADVERTISEMENT "Shouldn’t we find out whether our president is really putting 'America first?'" Schiff wrote, a nod to one of Trump's campaign slogans. Schiff's call comes as a bombshell Washington Post report...

    FULL TITLE: Trump touts 'long overdue' Syria pullout, says US 'will devastate Turkey economically' if they attack Kurds President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that the "long overdue pullout from Syria" is starting, and threatened that the U.S. will "devastate Turkey economically" if they attack Kurdish forces in the war-torn country. Trump said the removal of troops, which he announced via Twitter in December, is happening "while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions." The president also vowed that the U.S. "Will attack [ISIS] again from existing nearby base if it reforms." Trump promised the...

    Prince Turki al-Faisal told the BBC the action would have a negative impact, further entrenching Iran, Russia and the rule of President Bashar al-Assad. US President Donald Trump announced in December that it was time to bring US troops home from Syria. Prince Turki was speaking just before US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo began a visit to Riyadh.

    Actor Josh Charles, known for his work on “The Good Wife,” “Wet Hot American Summer” and “Sports Night” is the latest celebrity to sound off on social media about the Trump administration in the wake of the lengthy government shutdown. It’s unclear what specifically provoked the star to take to Twitter Thursday to go after Donald Trump. However, he pulled no punches in a pair of tweets that were highly critical of the president, his supporters and also Vice President Mike Pence. “I’m so sick of this motherf-----. Just so sick. This needs to end. F--- him and every single...

    Can you imagine how scary it would be to live in a world where your livelihood depended on having the ‘correct’ politics? It’s the sort of thing you might expect of totalitarian regimes – Baathist Iraq under Saddam Hussain; everywhere that has ever tried communism; increasingly, Xi’s panopticon China – but definitely not of any liberal democracy in the 21st century. That dystopian future, though, may be much closer than you think. I only properly appreciated this recently when the podcast I’ve been doing for the last few years was mysteriously dropped by my regular employer, forcing me to seek...

    President Trump took to Twitter Saturday to criticize media reports on the partial government shutdown that said there was chaos in the White House over the impasse between Trump and House Democrats on his $5 billion funding demand for a border wall. I just watched a Fake reporter from the Amazon Washington Post say the White House is “chaotic, there does not seem to be a strategy for this Shutdown. There is no plan.” The Fakes always like talking Chaos, there is NONE. In fact, there’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me, and...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January...

    President Trump said the "real collusion" story was Democrats and cable news pundits accusing him of creating a "manufactured crisis" in his push for a border wall. Trump spoke with Sean Hannity during a trip to McAllen, Texas, where the Fox News host asked the president for his thoughts on the phrase. "I saw on your show actually where you had anchor after anchor using the exact same word. 'It’s manufactured, manufactured,'" Trump said. "Sounds like they’re in collusion," Hannity chimed in. "Yeah, little collusion," Trump said. "That’s the real collusion, OK? That's the real collusion. You take a look...

"This morning, President Mary Kay Henry accepted Scott Courtney's resignation as an elected officer and member of SEIU. This comes a week after she suspended him from his assigned duties based on preliminary information that surfaced through an internal investigation launched to look into questions about to potential violations of our union's anti-nepotism policy, efforts to evade our code of ethics and subsequent complaints related to sexual misconduct and abusive behavior towards union staff," the statement reads....
