  • Trump slams DeSantis over Covid vaccine booster shot. Why that could pay off politically.

    Those remarks weren’t just vintage Trump braggadocio. They’re likely also smart politics, as they provide an opening to win back some suburban voters that fled from him toward Biden in 2020. Sixty-seven percent of suburban residents were vaccinated as of August, according to a late summer NBC News poll. That was below the 79 percent of urban residents who got the vaccine, but well above the 52 percent of rural residents, where support for Trump runs deep. Even Biden gave credit to the Trump administration for the development of the Covid vaccine and for getting a booster shot.It’s unclear that...
  • Trump and his allies continue to pour donor money into Trump's businesses

    Donald Trump may be out of office, but political donor money continues to pour into his properties across the country. In just the first six months of this year, dozens of Republican campaigns and political groups have together spent at least $750,000 at Trump properties, with nearly half of that coming from fundraising committees directly affiliated with or linked to Trump himself, according to federal and state campaign disclosure reports. Of that $750,000, the largest chunk was spent by the Make America Great Again PAC, Trump's presidential campaign committee-turned political action committee, which paid the former president's businesses more than...

    What a dark day for America. Democrats are now allowed to make any changes to election law whenever they feel necessary without consequence. The Supreme Court also threw out Attorney Lin Wood’s election challenge without comment. The Supreme Court turned down EVERY SINGLE election case this year without comment. What a tragedy. It was the Trump Wisconsin case that was dismissed this morning.
  • Kwame Kilpatrick’s sentence commuted; Trump-appointed prosecutor calls him ‘unrepentant criminal’ who only served quarter of sentence

    Michigan Live ^ | 1/20 | Gus Burns
    By | Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and departing President Donald Trump share some traits in common. Both left divided communities in their political wake, enlisting devout supporters who engaged in emotional faceoffs with disgusted opposition along the way. Kilpatrick, now 50 and one of Michigan’s most notorious taxpayer-funded convicted conmen, is set to be released from prison after serving seven years of his 28-year federal prison sentence. He was originally slated to live behind prison walls until age 67 with an earliest release date of Jan. 18, 2037. That changed when the Trump administration announced Kilpatrick’s sentence will...

    Who knew that when the declassifications we’ve been waiting for got rolling they’d seem like a distractor? Not that we should give them short shrift. Long shrifts only, please. ... The ones that are coming out Friday (I’ve seen initial takes pop up in the last couple of hours) are important in their own right, and we’ll all be grateful to whoever has the time to parse them out for us. But in context – the big picture – they make a nice departure point for the main-stage drama that is only beginning to coalesce. They’re a leading element of...
  • Bill Barr is a class act

    Bill Barr started his term as President Trump’s second attorney general maligned by the left and is ending it under attack from both sides. But the man is a class act who has consistently done the nation great service. Barr announced his resignation, with a departure date of Dec. 23, in a classy letter to the president. Barr has done all he can to ensure those who abused their power to harm first candidate and then President Trump will be held accountable. In October, he made John Durham, the former US attorney he’d tasked with investigating the origins of the...
  • Trust The Scam: Barr Resigns After Covering Up Epstein Case, Hiding Hunter Biden Investigation

    Attorney General William Barr announced his resignation on Monday in a letter to President Trump. In the letter, Barr massaged Trump's ego and announced he "will spend the next week wrapping up a few remaining matters important to the administration, and depart on December 23." The Wall Street Journal reported over the last few days that Barr personally ordered the DOJ to keep the Hunter Biden investigation under wraps. From the WSJ on Monday, "Barr Kept Hunter Biden Probes From Public to Avoid Election Politics": Attorney General William Barr, in the weeks before November's election, instructed prosecutors and senior colleagues...

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday he has told his administration’s negotiators to end coronavirus stimulus talks with Democrats until after the Nov. 3 election. The declaration, if the White House follows through on it, would halt an ongoing push to send trillions of dollars more in relief to Americans as the outbreak rampages through the U.S. and the economy struggles to recover from virus-related shutdowns. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke for an hour about a relief package on Monday and planned to talkagain Tuesday. “I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the...

    "I hope they're not going to be politically correct,' Trump said Following Mueller’s investigation, Barr appointed Durham to then investigate the origins of the FBI’s original Russia probe, which began in July 2016, through the appointment of Mueller in May 2017. Durham’s team includes a number of federal prosecutors, including Jeff Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri who was tapped by the DOJ in February to review the case against Michael Flynn. In May, Barr also tapped U.S. Attorney for Western Texas John Bash to launch a more focused review on the process of unmasking. The...

    In his first official press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic since April, President Trump on Tuesday admitted that the public health crisis is likely to worsen as cases surge across the country and asked all Americans to wear masks in public. While Trump hailed his administration’s response to the pandemic and the work toward developing a vaccine, he bluntly disclosed what many Americans already know: that the crisis is likely to spread more before it can be contained. “It will get worse before it gets better,” Trump said of the pandemic that has infected close to 4 million Americans. “That’s...

We're going to have a road to citizenship," he [Trump] added.

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that existing federal law forbids job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, a major victory for advocates of gay rights — and a surprising one from an increasingly conservative court. The decision said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate because of a person's sex, among other factors, also covers sexual orientation. It upheld rulings from lower courts that said sexual orientation discrimination was a form of sex discrimination. Across the nation, 21 states have their own laws prohibiting job discrimination based on...

  • With his tweets about Scarborough’s intern, Trump set a trap for Twitter

    American Thinker ^ | Andrea Widburg
    Even Trump supporters have wondered about Trump’s tweets implying that MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough had something to do with a young intern’s death in his office when he was still a Florida congressman. It’s true that Scarborough and his co-host and wife Mika Brzezinksi have spent three years accusing Trump of treasonous collusion with the Russians, but Trump’s venom still seemed strange. I, however, don’t think it was strange at all. Trump is one of the most calculating, rational people ever to occupy the White House. He’s been faced with a serious problem, which is the fact that the immensely powerful...

    First it was fake news and now we have fake test results! I am trying to understand why President Trump, Fauci, Birx, the CDC and the W.H.O. keep saying the Covid-19 testing is what matters? At the very same time we are hearing and reading the "test results" for Covid 19 are being artificially inflated and extremely unreliable? For instance, it is admitted in States like New York and Ohio that everything is being labeled Covid-19. This includes people that were never tested! Even with this artifactual inflation of the numbers, the death count numbers are 20 times lower than...

    Robert Mueller's Russia probe never would have happened if now-Attorney General William Barr was picked for the position in 2017 instead of Jeff Sessions, President Trump said Friday. In a phone interview on "Fox & Friends" with host Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Ainsley Earhardt, the president said that Sessions was a "disaster" in his role and that, initially, he did not want to make him attorney general. "I didn't want to make him Attorney General, but he was the first senator to endorse me. So, I felt a little bit of an obligation," Trump recalled. "He came to see...
