    Former President Trump has a significantly higher favorable rating than Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll found.The survey provided a list of high profile figures across the board in politics and found Trump standing at the top in terms of favorability, garnering 46 percent.That is higher than every other figure featured on the list, which includes President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and more. McConnell’s favorable figures are toward the bottom half of the list, garnering a 25 percent favorable rating — 21 points lower...
  • Donald Trump On Racism Charges: ‘I Am The Least Racist Person There Is’

    Donald Trump returned to the airwaves this morning with his rhetoric about President Obama’s job performance remarkably toned down. Trump gave Obama high marks for his handling of Osama bin Laden and said about Obama, “he’s riding high, he’s doing well and I thought he did a good job on 60 Minutes.” Trump instead turned his focus to Pakistan and to the online company Groupon. Trump suggested he knew two months ago that Bin Laden was in Pakistan, and declared Pakistan should no longer receive any aid “unless they get rid of their nuclear weapons,” since “much like China, these...

    Between Saturday and Sunday Trump's twitter account followers grew back to its original 83 million followers. Those were likely already in his account. They were just deposited back in it. Since then an additional 4.4 million followers have come into his account. These are new people. We'll see if this pace of new additions continues. Trump as per his agreement with Truth Social can't have his stuff reposted for at least 5 hours. This five hours could be used to curate his tweets on Truth Social. The Tweets on Truth Social with the most likes over the next five hours...

    The incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday formally accused the FBI of meddling in the last four elections to the detriment of Republicans, citing the Russia collusion probe, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story and the raid on Donald Trump's home . Maybe it'd be nice if the FBI and the Justice Department just stayed out of it and let we the people decide who we think should represent us, who we think should lead us," he added. "That’s supposed to be how America works. "So this is the focus on the Judiciary Committee, the...

    During Donald Trump’s presidency, The Washington Post kept a running tally of his alleged lies and/or misleading statements. But, when Joe Biden became president, the Post fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, announced an end to the database operation, saying: “Maintaining the Trump database over four years required about 400 additional 8-hour days over four years beyond our regular jobs for three people.” Looks like supply-chain issues at the Post.So, while the Post continues to fact-check Biden, it discontinued the Trump-era practice of running the tote board because, after all, Biden is not Trump, and the Post undoubtedly expects Biden to be more...
  • BREAKING NEWS: Trump inaugural committee chair Tom Barrack found NOT GUILTY on counts of acting as an unregistered agent for the UAE and lying to the FBI

    Tom Barrack, Trump's longtime billionaire friend and 2016 fundraiser, has been acquitted on all charges related to accusations he lobbied Trump on behalf of the United Arab Emirates without registering as a foreign agent. He also stood accused of then lying to the FBI about those contacts. The jury deliberated for about two days at federal court in Brooklyn before finding Barrack not guilty. Prosecutors alleged Barrack had traded on his decades-long friendship with the then-president to give UAE officials access to and insider information on the Trump White House and 2016 campaign. Acting as a foreign agent without registering...

    Pro-impeachment Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) vowed to enable the Democrats’ agenda in her final pitch to Alaskan voters. “Here’s my commitment to you. I will work with anyone from either party to advance Alaska’s priorities, and I will always stand up to any politician or special interest that threatens our way of life,” she said in the ad released Tuesday. “I’m Lisa Murkowski, and I approve this message. I’d be honored to earn your vote.” It is not the first time Murkowski pledged to help the Biden administration further its agenda. She stated in September she would help the Biden...

    Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Monday filed a motion demanding Donald Trump pay Clinton’s legal fees after a Bill Clinton judge tossed the RICO lawsuit over the Russian collusion canard. President Trump filed a federal RICO suit in Miami, Florida in March against Hillary Clinton and others over the Russia collusion hoax orchestrated by the Clinton campaign in 2016 to undermine Trump’s candidacy and derail his presidency. Trump asked for treble damages of expenses and losses of more than $24 million. In April President Trump requested the Clinton-appointed judge overseeing his Russiagate case against Hillary Clinton and others be removed from...

    The "Welcome to the Big Kids Club" author responds to Sen. Ted Cruz implying on "The View" that her mother, Hillary Clinton, denied the 2016 election results and shares her thoughts on the midterms. [Video only, at link. The pandering those libtards on The View did to this ungainly dullard, because she's the daughter of their queen, is breathtaking and gag-inducing at the same time.]

    Former campaign vice chair for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, Huma Abedin, told "The View" hosts on Thursday that Clinton faced "impossible standards" as a woman in politics. Co-host Ana Navarro said "politics have become a personality contest" and asked Abedin about Vice President Kamala Harris being "judged" by the same "phantom ideal woman" as Clinton. "I know the challenge and you know this well that Hillary had to face just as a woman in politics," Abedin said. "All these impossible standards, you know, she needs to be taller, shorter, talk this way. This is annoying, you know, she looks...

    The collapse in oil prices is already a major cause of concern for countries heavily reliant on exports of the commodity. For some, it could be a matter of avoiding a severe recession. Here's why: For governments in oil-exporting countries to meet their spending commitments they need oil to remain above a certain price. With oil prices under $87 a barrel, countries that rely on high oil prices, including Venezuela, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, may have a reason to be concerned. This chart shows the price per barrel that the six most exposed countries need to meet their national budgets....

Steele was unable to provide any evidence.Auten said he and a group of FBI agents met with Steele in October of 2021 and offered the former British spy $1 million for evidence supporting the dossier, according to Fox News.

    In my opinion, the Jan. 6 Committee has had two main aims that have nothing to do with the riot, justice, or “threats to democracy.”It’s always been about trying to damage President Donald Trump so that he can’t run or win again, and to hurt the Republicans’ chances in the midterms.If you understand it through that lens, then you know that they are largely admitting defeat on one of those major goals with their latest action.Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MI) said that they would not be putting out a report until after the election. They will be having a...

    The FBI team that was in communication with Facebook before the social media company censored the original Hunter Biden laptop story has been identified, according to a new court filing. Meta, Facebook’s parent company, identified the team as the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF), according to an updated complaint entered late on Oct. 6. Meta named the team after receiving a subpoena in a case alleging the federal government pressured Big Tech firms to censor users. “Pursuant to the third-party subpoena, Meta has identified the FBI’s FITF, as supervised by Laura Dehmlow, and Elvis Chan as involved in the...

    I used to joke, during the recent impeachment trials, that if what Donald Trump had done was “worse than Watergate,” as CNN’s Carl Bernstein said over and over again, then perhaps Watergate wasn’t so bad.At the time, I had a conventional view of the scandal that brought down President Richard M. Nixon — the one taught in history courses, and familiar from All the President’s Men: that due to hubris and paranoia, Nixon had sought to spy on the opposition in an election he won by a landslide, and deserved to go to prison.That narrative has unraveled slowly over the...
