With all of the exits from the GOP House team noted, it will be a struggle to keep the house in republican control in 2025 even with a resounding victory by President Trump. WATCH:

    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who is federally accused of accepting gold bars and hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for his influence as a senator, is reportedly mulling an independent reelection bid. Citing a pair of sources “who spoke with him directly,” NBC News’s Julie Tsirkin, Carol E. Lee, and Kate Santaliz reported Thursday that Menendez is considering an independent run: He is now making calls to allies about his record and career and is preparing to collect petitions to run in November as an independent, the sources said. If Menendez were to run as a Democrat,...

    Hunter Biden was deposed yesterday before the Oversight and House Judiciary committees behind closed doors.. He made several nuanced statements: In an opening statement distributed to the media, Hunter accused House Republicans of spreading “baseless and MAGA-motivated conspiracies” about his father’s role in an array of foreign business relationships and insisted he “never” involved President Biden “in my business” — despite what Republican investigators say is substantial evidence to the contrary. Hunter's denials have continuously evolved over time as the GOP exposes evidence contrary to them. Within an hour House democrats were outside lying about the testimony. The top Democrat...
  • Why Is Panera Exempted From California's New Minimum Wage Law?

    When fast food restaurants across California have to start paying workers $20 per hour on April 1, one major chain will be exempted from the mandate—and it just so happens to have a connection to a longtime friend and donor to Gov. Gavin Newsom. Panera Bread is poised to get a boost from a bizarre clause in the fast-food minimum wage law that exempts "chains that bake bread and sell it as a standalone item," Bloomberg reports, adding that "Newsom pushed for that break, according to people familiar with the matter." That exemption stands to benefit Greg Flynn, owner and...

    The former FBI informant charged with lying about a $10 million-dollar bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden´s family is set to appear in a California federal court on Monday. A judge will determine whether Alexander Smirnov, 43, must remain behind bars while he awaits trial. Special counsel David Weiss' office is pressing U.S. District Judge Otis Wright II to keep Smirnov in jail, arguing the man who claims to have ties to Russian intelligence is likely to flee the country. A different judge last week released Smirnov from jail on electronic GPS monitoring, but Wright ordered the man to be...

    President Joe Biden’s brother James said during the House impeachment inquiry on Wednesday that he threw away Hunter’s Biden first diamond received from CEFC China Energy Co, a source familiar with the interview told Breitbart News. Hunter received a second, $80,000 diamond from CEFC chairman Ye Jianming in February 2017. Hunter received the first diamond when Joe Biden was vice president to entice him to do business with CEFC, the source said. Hunter gave it to James to have it appraised, according to the source, but James said he threw it away.

    John Oliver has offered Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas $1m a year if he leaves the court immediately. On a recent episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the show host declared, “This is not a joke”, as he waved a contract at the screen and asked the judge to “get the f*** off the Supreme Court.” He added that on top of the million a year, he would throw in a motor coach worth $2.4m in return for the judge leaving the United States’ highest court – making reference with this offer to previous motor coach coverage, which...

    Seventy current and former NYCHA workers were busted Tuesday in a 10-year, $2 million pay-to-play corruption scheme involving the largest number of federal bribery charges brought in a single day in Department of Justice history. The avalanche of bribery and extortion crimes occurred in about a third of the 335 developments in the New York Housing Authority — the country’s biggest public housing agency — when the suspects demanded cash in exchange for lucrative construction, maintenance and no-bid contracts, officials said. The defendants, all of whom were working for NYCHA at the time, sought between 10% and 20% of the...

    Joe Biden may be known to some by the nickname Middle-Class Joe, but the former vice president and current president is actually a millionaire, many times over. At the start of his 2020 presidential campaign Biden released his financial information - disclosures as well as state and federal tax returns for 2016, 2017, and 2018 - and based on those forms, Forbes estimated that he had a net worth of $9 million. **SNIP** Here, take a look back at how he earned his fortune. Before Biden became Vice President, he served as a Senator from 1973 to 2009. Over the...

    The $1 million Hunter Biden’s Chinese business partner Patrick Ho wired him in 2017 is the subject of a separate bribery investigation. Recall that in 2017 the the FBI raided the offices and intercepted the communications of Chi Ping “Patrick” Ho, a Chinese national suspected of espionage who was a business partner with Hunter and Joe Biden’s slimy brother Jim Biden. Patrick Ho was later put on trial and found guilty of bribing government officials around the world to advance the interests of the Chinese Communist Party. The crooked Department of Justice hid Hunter Biden’s connections with Patrick Ho during...
  • 2007 FBI Investigation Resurfaces – A Biden Is Clearly Heard on the Tapes (audio and transcript)

    Out of all the topics the Joe Biden White House didn’t want to see in Sunday’s Washington Post, this had to be up there on the list. The capital city’s newspaper of record published recordings Sunday of President Joe Biden’s brother, James, engaged in scoring off his famous last name during the late 1990s. The fact that the recordings were made by FBI investigators couldn’t have made things easier in the Biden household either. The Post article was headlined “James Biden’s dealmaking caught on FBI tapes in unrelated bribery probe,” and just the words alone had to be unsettling at...

    Trouble has followed Sara Catherine Jones since she married into the Biden family almost three decades ago. Not long after her 1995 wedding to Jim Biden, she took a job with one of his brother Joe’s Senate donors, who later accused her of “fraud” and “unjust enrichment,” according to court records reviewed by RealClearInvestigations. In the years since, she and her husband have been accused of reneging on debts and failing to pay their taxes, court and property records show. Like their nephew, first son Hunter Biden, they have reportedly sold the promise of access to their powerful relative to...
