    There are fresh battles lines in the 2020 presidential campaign, reflecting an unpredictable rivalry between two Democratic politicians — one who isn’t even running this cycle and another who is polling at barely 1 percent. Hillary Clinton suggested this week that current primary contender Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is being used by the Russians, ...
  • A Washington Post headline unintentionally gives away the game

    The headline below tells us a lot more than the Democrat partisans at the Washington Post intended. After two weeks of closed-door testimony, a clearer portrait of Trump's role emerges How does closed-door testimony tells the Washington Post and its readers anything? By leaks, of course. So a "clearer portrait" is being painted by leakers with the agenda of damaging President Trump. There is no pretense of presenting a full picture that would include information that would not support the Democrats' agenda. As Ed Lasky commented, "Pelosi, Schiff & company are controlling the narrative via leaks. This is repulsive." Lauri...
  • Kurdish group PKK pens open letter rebuking Trump's comparison to ISIS

    The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is designated as a terrorist group by both the U.S. and Turkey, penned an open letter in English rebuking President Trump's comparison of the group to ISIS amid a fight between Kurds and Turkish forces in northern Syria. The PKK said in Friday's letter that it “refused comparisons” to ISIS after Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday that the Kurds were “no angels” and that the PKK is likely “more of a terrorist threat” than ISIS. “We refuse comparisons being made between our movement and the inhumane thugs of ISIS,” the PKK’s...

    President Donald Trump is one of the most controversial world leaders in modern times, igniting the ire of America’s staunchest allies. Whether it’s the proposed Muslim ban, the US border wall and immigration, or his praise of authoritarian leaders, Trump is deft at inciting deep divisions among the public. In 2018, political scientist Daniel Drezner summarized this consensus in The Washington Post: “The world hates President Trump.” Data from the Pew Research Center illustrates Drezner’s thinking. For the residents of US allies, their confidence in the US president dropped substantially from the last year of Obama’s presidency to the beginning...

    Most Americans have to work to earn a living. But the rich are different: They get most of their income not from labor but from what they own — companies, stocks, real estate and the like. These income-generating assets are what economists call capital. And because capital is heavily concentrated among the rich, the U.S. government taxed earnings derived from capital at a higher rate than earnings made through labor for the entirety of the 20th century. But that’s no longer the case, according to economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman of the University of California at Berkeley. In their...
  • Trump should swiftly reject the schedule of 2020 debates

    Last week, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced the schedule of 2020 presidential debates. President Trump should quickly dismiss that schedule as unacceptable and announce that if any debates will be held at all in 2020, it will be only after extensive, direct negotiations between him and the eventual nominee of the Democratic Party and their respective designated representatives. And those negotiations should begin from a premise that the Republicans will no longer play by the biased rules of a deeply unbalanced Manhattan-Beltway media elite. Explicitly articulating this declaration of intent now, along with the possibility that, as in 1968...
  • Elizabeth Warren Under Fire as Campaign Surrogate’s Racist, Homophobic Tweets Come to Light

    Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is being heavily criticized for failing to vet a high-profile campaign surrogate with a history of making homophobic, racist, misogynistic and xenophobic comments on social media. Activist Ashlee Marie Preston was featured in a Warren campaign video released October 10. In that video, Preston explains that she’s “a Warren Democrat because I am not afraid of the fight.” The video released by Twitter account @TeamWarren is captioned: 🙌@AshleeMPreston is a #WarrenDemocrat, and so are we. Together, we’re fighting so that all women of color have a voice in our democracy.

    AUSTIN, Texas — Texas’ GOP House speaker sought help ousting members of his own party in 2020, called a female lawmaker “vile” and said President Donald Trump is “killing us” in pivotal races in a secretly recorded meeting with a conservative activist released Tuesday. House Speaker Dennis Bonnen also profanely disparaged another Democratic House member in the hourlong tape, which also reveals other political scheming and has thrown the GOP-controlled Legislature into disarray at a fragile moment when their majority is at stake. The tape has uncorked the biggest Texas political scandal in years. Democrats filed a lawsuit accusing Bonnen...

    On July 24, President Obama traveled to Medina, a small, wealthy enclave outside Seattle, to attend a fundraiser for a Democratic super PAC at the home of former Costco CEO Jim Sinegal, one of the Democratic Party’s most reliable donors. But at the same time Sinegal was raising money to help Democrats retain control of the U.S. Senate, he and two of the wholesaler’s top executives were also shelling out cash to help Republicans win the Washington State Senate. In fact, the three Costco executives — long among the most reliable donors to Democratic candidates and causes — have spent...

    We know from documentary evidence that Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the EU, told William Taylor, our ambassador to Ukraine, that there was no quid pro quo involved in connection with Ukraine investigating the Bidens. Sondland appears to have been the president’s point person within the diplomatic corps for dealing with Ukraine in these matters. Sondland will testify before a congressional committee this week. According to the Washington Post, Sondland will say that his “no quid pro quo” message came from President Trump. In other words, Trump told him there was no such arrangement. Post reporters Aaron Davis and...

    "democracy dies in darkness" is what the Washington Post had been telling subscribers. But now that Schiff is conducting secret Star Chamber impeachment hearings, the media has done about face. They're no longer interested in freedom of information and transparency. "Democracy dies in transparency" is the new mainstream media motto. "Keep those doors closed! DON'T let the sun shine in!"

    If we wanted to, we could make a career out of exposing the Washington establishment media for being nothing more than outright propagandists for the Garbage Party and the anti-American Left. As noted earlier this morning, we pointed out that these people are still pretending like President Trump begged China to investigate Joe Biden and his corrupt coke-snorting son, Hunter, over a sweetheart business deal with a state-owned bank. The president did no such thing, nor did he beg Ukraine to investigate the Bidens ‘or else’ he’d withhold military aid to that country. Both allegations are complete fabrications of what...

    President Trump isn’t the first American leader to turn his back on foreign friends who were counting on U.S. assistance: President Dwight D. Eisenhower did it in Hungary in 1956; President John F. Kennedy in Cuba in 1961; and President Gerald Ford in South Vietnam in 1975. But no previous chief executive has ever sold out the United States’ allies as nonchalantly and unnecessarily as Trump has done with the Syrian Kurds. At least with Eisenhower, Kennedy and Ford, there was a good reason they failed to come to the aid of freedom fighters: Doing so would have embroiled the...

    On Fox Nation’s “Deep Dive,” Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett warned that Democrats are pursuing an impeachment process that the authors of the U.S. Constitution would have opposed. As evidence, Jarrett pointed to the man that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-Calif., has empowered to lead the inquiry. “Nancy Pelosi knows this,” said Jarrett. “In January of this year, she said we cannot impeach for political reasons and now she is doing precisely that. And the person that she has handled the gavel to, Adam Schiff, has a long and distinguished record of not just hatred of President Trump but...

    Allies to President Trump are furious with acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan for how they say he threw his boss and department officials under the bus in a recent interview. “At a time when President Trump is facing the most partisan attacks of his administration, one of his own Cabinet-level officials aired his grievances with the president in the court of public opinion,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Regardless of your readers' political leanings: Left, right, or in the middle, the airing of grievances by a Cabinet-level official must be considered dishonest and unforgivable.”...

    A woman who was thought to be a supporter of left-wing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez an urged people to “eat babies” to save the planet from a supposed environmental meltdown now appears to be someone trolling AOC. As the Daily Caller reports, a fringe political group is taking credit for the disturbance and subsequent national attention the woman created: LaRouche PAC, a fringe political action committee, took credit for the stunt Thursday evening on Twitter and noted the congresswoman didn’t “rule out eating babies.” The group responded to multiple tweets on the incident, writing “it was us” repeatedly, The Washington Post...

    The Washington Post's "Fact Checker" column on Friday gave House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) four Pinocchios for claiming last month that his panel had "not spoken directly with the whistleblower" who raised concerns about President Trump's dealings with Ukraine. The New York Times first reported on Wednesday that the whistleblower had consulted with Schiff's committee before filing the complaint. Schiff said in a Sept. 17 interview with the Daily Beast's Sam Stein on MSNBC that "we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower." “Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What...

    Here’s a subject that no Democratic lawmakers will touch right now. The thinking is: Pence is implicated in Trump’s campaign to pressure Ukraine to reopen their investigation into Joe Biden and Hunter Biden. Although Pence never mentioned Biden’s name to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he was after all, involved in communicating the delay of the U.S. aid and at the request of President Trump, he skipped Zelensky’s inauguration. Shouldn’t Pence be impeached too? A rather low bar for impeachment to be sure, but that’s all they’ve got right now. The media, on the other hand, has no such reservations. The...
  • Democrats Propose To Block Trump’s Farm Aid Program, Putting U.S. Farmers At ‘Serious Risk’

    House Democrats are proposing to block President Donald Trump’s aid to farmers amidst the country’s tariff fight with China, which could have a devastating impact on America’s farmers. The Washington Post revealed Thursday that it has reviewed a draft of a bill written by House Appropriations Committee Chair Nita Lowey (D-NY) that would block Trump’s ability to help farmers while the country fights China’s unfair trade practices. House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said in a tweet Thursday that Democrats are trying to “squeeze” American farmers by blocking this aid. “Farming is hard enough work as it is. But now...
