  • Bill Maher says Republicans would 'secretly love' to see Trump in jail over January 6 as he compares it to Arab countries 'loving when Israel would bomb Iraq'

    'Real Time' host Bill Maher said Republicans would 'secretly love' to see Trump incarcerated over January 6 as much as Arab countries 'love when Israel would bomb Iraq.' Maher, 66, returned to his show Friday night after a month-long break and was joined by Politico's White House Editor Sam Stein and Columbia Associate Professor John McWhorter. The liberal host jumped into the roundtable discussion by calling former President Donald Trump the 'cloud hanging over this country,' but admitted the January 6 committee hearings were 'pretty impressive.'
  • Supreme Court ruling blows holes in Springfield’s (MA) 30-year-old restrictions on license-to-carry applications

    08/01/2022 11:18:39 AM PDT · by matt04 · 37 replies
    The impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent landmark decision on firearms is reverberating throughout Massachusetts and in particular in Springfield where the Police Department found its decades-old practice of routinely restricting — or even denying — licenses to carry firearms was suddenly unconstitutional. “With the new changes from the Supreme Court decision, that’s all gone,” said Deputy Police Chief William Cochrane. ... The concern among lawmakers is that Bruen will chip away at Massachusetts’ gun laws, considered among the toughest in the nation, that have been on the books for decades and longer in some instances. The first law...
  • Moderate GOP Rep. Peter Meijer Trashes Dems for Bankrolling His MAGA Foe in Scathing Op-Ed: Selling Out ‘Any Pretense of Principle’ (pot, kettle)

    Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), a moderate GOP congressman, blasted Democrats for bankrolling his Trumpian opponent, John Gibbs, ahead of Tuesday’s primaries in Michigan. Democrats have been financially backing MAGA GOP candidates this primary cycle in order to have a better shot at beating them ahead of an expected Republican wave in November. In Bari Weiss’ Substack outlet, Common Sense, Meijer wrote that he voted to certify Joe Biden’s electoral victory as president, while noting that Gibbs “denies the results” of that election. “The DCCC’s ad buy was more than Gibbs raised over the entire duration of his campaign. It was...

    We should reserve judgment on this one as I’m unfamiliar with the pollster, Blueprint Polling, apart from the fact that (a) it’s the “sister company” to a Democratic polling firm and (b) it’s the same one that recently found DeSantis leading Trump 51/39 in Florida.But the results here are grim enough to be noteworthy, particularly when we’re starving for data from Pennsylvania. There hasn’t been a public poll of the state since mid-June, when one survey found John Fetterman ahead of Oz, 50/44. A Democrat being up six in a swing state in a national environment as red as this...

    Axios ^ | 7/22/22 | Jonathan Swan
    Former President Trump’s top allies are preparing to radically reshape the federal government if he is re-elected, purging potentially thousands of civil servants and filling career posts with loyalists to him and his "America First” ideology, people involved in the discussions tell Axios. The impact could go well beyond typical conservative targets such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Internal Revenue Service. Trump allies are working on plans that would potentially strip layers at the Justice Department — including the FBI, and reaching into national security, intelligence, the State Department and the Pentagon, sources close to the former president...

    Joe Biden’s much-touted trip to the Middle East—his first as president—produced no significant deliverables. To be underwhelmed, however, is to miss a more troubling story. The visit may have been pointless and performative, but it was also a major setback for American interests, confirming what many long suspected: Supposed allies can disrespect, embarrass, and undermine the United States at will. The costs are already evident. On Saturday, less than 24 hours after Biden left the region, the United Arab Emirates sentenced an American citizen, Asim Ghafoor, to three years in prison on nebulous charges. Ghafoor, a lawyer for the slain...

    The primary is in two weeks, and the most nervous political demographic is the traditional, conservative Republicans with experience. It's hard to believe. Ronald Reagan-loving, John Engler-revered Republicans — the people who ran Michigan government for the better part of 25 years — have a pit in their stomach over Aug. 2. They're like the guilty boy who isn't sure if he's getting anything under the Christmas tree. They honestly don't know what they're getting. Let's start at the top with Tudor Dixon. She was a guest commentator on the fringe right radio network America's Voice with Steve Gruber before...

He changed our party. We have a lot of folks, a new generation of folks, Ron DeSantis,...

I think that the fact of the matter is he is like a...

    Ahead of the rally former President Donald Trump was scheduled to have in Arizona (later postponed due to the death of Ivana Trump), the Fox News website posted a stunning three-minute video featuring a host of Trump supporters in Maricopa County talking about ditching him in 2024 for Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). The incredible montage features a group of Arizona voters who — save for one identified as Beverly who enthusiastically backed a Trump 2024 bid — all said they wanted to see Trump sit it out next time and identified DeSantis as the person they want to take over...

    The National Rifle Association on Monday issued a stinging rebuke of former President Donald Trump’s pick for Wisconsin governor, accusing him of misleading its members after his campaign falsely claimed the gun advocacy group had endorsed him. Construction company co-owner Tim Michels is locked in a three-way GOP primary with former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and state Rep. Tim Ramthun. Michels won Trump’s endorsement in June. An endorsement from the NRA would have marked another huge win for him heading into the Aug. 9 election. Michels’ campaign sent out a flyer that landed in mailboxes Saturday that claimed the NRA...

    KYIV, Ukraine—Russia ordered its forces to target the long-range missiles and artillery weapons that Western countries have recently supplied to Ukraine, a sign of how Kyiv’s additional firepower has begun to reshape the conflict. On Monday, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told a group of Russian troops to make Ukraine’s long-range weaponry a priority target to prevent shelling in parts of eastern Ukraine held by Russian forces, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. A recent shipment of advanced Western weapons has reinforced Ukraine’s efforts to fend off Russia’s invasion. Whether those weapons will enable Kyiv to turn the tide remains unclear,...

    The refusal of Ukraine and Western powers to recognise Moscow's control of Crimea poses a "systemic threat" for Russia and any outside attack on the region will prompt a "Judgment Day" response, former president Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday. Russia annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 after a pro-Moscow president in Kyiv was toppled amid mass street protests. Moscow then also backed pro-Russian armed separatists in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. In the event of an attack on Crimea, Medvedev was quoted by TASS news agency as saying, "Judgment Day will come very fast...
  • Gas prices may surge again ahead of midterm elections

    Drivers relieved by the recent dip in gas prices may be in for a shock when the summer winds down, with energy analysts warning a fresh round of price surges could emerge as soon as October. The prospect of a new gas price jolt coinciding with midterm elections has the White House and many Democrats on edge. The price concerns are tied to the timeline for stricter sanctions on Russia that will further choke the global oil supply. J.P. Morgan has warned that in a worst-case scenario - in which Russia retaliates by shutting down its supply altogether - the...

    Retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News Tuesday to discuss the latest developments of the Ukraine-Russia conflict, noting that the first phase of Russia’s incursion is over, marking the “beginning of the end of the Ukrainian resistance.”“The first five days, we witnessed a very slow, methodical movement of Russian forces into eastern Ukraine,” MacGregor said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday.“That is Ukraine — the third of Ukraine, which is on the eastern side of this river, called the Dnieper. They move slowly, cautiously. They try to reduce casualties among the civilian population, tried to give as...

    The majority of Americans do not think President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump should run for reelection, according to polling released Tuesday.
