  • Vaccine mandate protesters slam Trump as a 'fraud' after being turned away from Trump Grill

    The Trump Grill, located inside Trump Tower in New York City, refused to allow a group of vaccine mandate protesters to eat at the restaurant on Thursday after they failed to provide proof of vaccination. In response, the group slammed former President Donald Trump as a "fraud" and "a little hypocritical" for enforcing the city's indoor dining vaccine mandate, rather than paying the fines associated with defying the requirement, Newsweek reports. While Trump has come around on promoting the COVID-19 vaccines, he's maintained that "there can't be mandates and all those things." As he further put it to Fox News...

    Arizona faith leaders are urging U.S. Sens. Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema to expand child tax credits as part of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. If the credits aren’t at least extended by the end of December, the recurring monthly payments of up to $300 for every child under the age of six and $250 a month for children ages 6-17 would lapse in the new year. As passed by the House last month, the Build Back Better bill includes a one-year extension of the child tax credit. Tamera Zivic, the CEO of WHEAT, an anti-hunger and poverty...
  • GOP leaders seek to fend off Trump endorsement as far-right Republican eyes Illinois primary bid

    Donald Trump's closest Hill allies are privately lobbying the former President to get involved in a Republican-on-Republican matchup in Illinois, a potentially messy scenario that has sparked internal strife in the party and prompted GOP leaders to launch a counter-campaign aimed at keeping Trump on the sidelines. At the center of it all is freshman Rep. Mary Miller, a member of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus who has been left without a seat after redistricting. Now she's deciding whether to challenge fellow Illinois Republican Reps. Rodney Davis or Mike Bost. Hoping to boost Miller's political prospects, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene...
  • Fact check: Deceptive attack ad against GOP Senate candidate Pat McCrory edits his quotes about Trump and rioters

    Washington (CNN)A television attack ad from conservative Super PAC Club for Growth Action uses egregiously deceptive editing to build its case that Pat McCrory, a Republican candidate for a US Senate seat in North Carolina, is a "Trump-hater" and "liberal faker." Facts First: The attack ad dishonestly sliced and diced remarks McCrory made on the Charlotte radio show he co-hosted after his term as North Carolina governor ended in 2017 -- changing the meaning of some of his quotes to transform them into what sounded like direct attacks on former President Donald Trump and Trump supporters. As CNN reported in...
  • Watchdog: Federal anti-terror unit investigated journalists

    A special Customs and Border Protection unit used sensitive government databases intended to track terrorists to investigate as many as 20 U.S.-based journalists, including a Pulitzer Prize-winning Associated Press reporter, according to a federal watchdog. Yahoo News, which published an extensive report on the investigation, also found that the unit, the Counter Network Division, queried records of congressional staffers and perhaps members of Congress. Jeffrey Rambo, an agent who acknowledged running checks on journalists in 2017, told federal investigators the practice is routine. “When a name comes across your desk you run it through every system you have access too,...
  • ‘We’re getting hit from every angle’: Georgia Dems fight attempt to bulldoze 2020 gains

    First came passage of one of the nation’s most restrictive voting bills. Then came efforts to overhaul the number of elected offices in one of Georgia’s largest counties. Now, with the pending passage of a new congressional map, Republicans have taken another step toward dismantling the Atlanta-area engine that turned Georgia blue, powering President Joe Biden to victory in 2020 and flipping control of the Senate to Democrats. Just as Georgia has emerged as a pivotal swing state, the GOP-controlled legislature has gone to extraordinary lengths to overhaul election administration, rewrite election rules and redraw political lines in the fast-growing...
  • In bid for control of elections, Trump loyalists face few obstacles

    “This is a five-alarm fire,” said Jocelyn Benson, the Democratic secretary of state in Michigan, who presided over her state’s Trump-contested election in 2020 and may face a Trump-backed challenger next year. “If people in general, leaders and citizens, aren’t taking this as the most important issue of our time and acting accordingly, then we may not be able to ensure democracy prevails again in ’24.” In some areas, new political battlefields are opening up where none existed previously. Until this year, races for administrative positions such as judge of elections were noncompetitive to the point of being more or...

    A total of 32 House and Senate Republicans helped push Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package over the finish line, most of whom have been showered with campaign cash from the leading lobbying group behind the bill — the US Chamber of Commerce. Lawmakers run for office, grabbing donations from interest groups, then, after their election, voting for legislation supported by those special interest groups despite their constituents’ opposition. The Chamber had been lobbying for Biden’s infrastructure bill, since the start of the year. By July, Open Secrets reported the Chamber had spent more than $12 million lobbying for the bill...

    "They'll never say it publicly," Politico reports in Thursday morning's Playbook. "But Republicans in Washington are dreading Donald Trump's return to the stump, predicting his rallies will cause a major headache for the party as it mounts a bid to take back Congress in 2022." Congressional Republicans are privately relieved Twitter and Facebook banned Trump, Politico says, but the resumption of his rallies in June likely means he just gets a new platform to "spout conspiracy theories about the election and air his grievances," denying the party a chance to move on and attack President Biden's agenda. "If we win...

    What is the point of the Republican party? This isn’t a flip question. It’s one prompted by the last four months of grappling with the fallout of the bloody insurrection on Capitol Hill, and by the last four years of grappling with the fallout of installing a fascist in the White House. So, for real: what does the GOP stand for? Apart from trying to seize back power, what does it want to do? The answer, as Liz Cheney has learned, is to pander to the ego of a single Florida resident who has no obvious or coherent political purpose....

    CNN political commentator Ana Navarro said Thursday on “Tonight” that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was likely being removed from her House Republican Conference chairmanship because her colleagues were “embarrassed” that she showed them to be “a bunch of eunuchs on their knees worshipping at the altar of Donald Trump.” Navarro said, “This is not about right or left. This is about right or wrong. This is about truth or Trump. This is about convictions or conspiracies. I’m going to tell you something I just want to get off my chest that I’m so disgusted by, so disgusted by two women...

    Republican lawmakers across the country are moving to restrict teaching about systemic racism in our education system, targeting critical race theory. But in the course of doing so, some are attempting to rewrite a very pertinent part of that history.Twice in recent weeks, Republican state lawmakers have defended the infamous “Three-Fifths Compromise” — the constitutional agreement by which enslaved people would count as three-fifths of a person for representation purposes — by arguing that it was actually somehow anti-slavery.

    Wait: did CNN's John Berman just analogize Liz Cheney to Jesus Christ? Sure sounds like it! On this morning's New Day, co-host John Berman eagerly reported "a senior House Republican tells CNN that congresswoman Liz Cheney could be in, quote, 'very big trouble.'" House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy might be "hanging her out to dry." Later, Berman added "his statements about Liz Cheney, the number three in the House, were almost biblical. Like, three times he denied her." That, of course, is a New Testament reference to Peter having denied Jesus three times. Get the rest of the story and...

    The fanatical Donald Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol in January are facing an unexpected obstacle to their freedom: Trump himself. Trump’s refusal to accept the reality that he lost the 2020 election — reflected in a torrent of recent statements renewing discredited claims about a “rigged” vote — has become a feature of prosecutors’ latest attempts to jail Capitol riot defendants they deem too dangerous to release pending trial. Judges have started citing this argument — as part of broader analysis — in cases where they've decided to detain defendants for presenting a threat of future violence, and even...

Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) one of the oddest in his career after inviting the congressman on his show to discuss an investigation he is facing for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old. “If you just saw our Matt Gaetz interview, that was one of the weirdest interviews I have ever conducted,” Carlson said to his viewers after the segment on his Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” On Tuesday news broke that the Department of Justice was investigating whether Gaetz “had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her...

    ATLANTA — Democrats seeking to create divides among supporters of President Donald Trump and the Georgia Republican Senate candidates doubled down on their messaging on Tuesday. Really American, a left-wing super PAC that spent close to half a million dollars campaigning against Trump and in support of Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, reiterated Tuesday that as Trump and his legal team pursue voter fraud allegations in a handful of states, including Georgia — where certified results showed Trump trailed Biden by a narrow 0.26 percent margin — Republican incumbent Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have somehow failed...

    VIDEO Now that there will be a Trump rally in Tulsa with over 800,000 signed up to attend, the media has discovered that coronavirus is rising again. Of course, during the recent wave of protests with little to no social distancing that concern was pretty much absent. Oddly enough, the graph of the actual deaths from the virus as you can see paints a starkly contrasting picture to what is now being portrayed.
