    Donald Trump supporters overwhelmed the Washington Hilton Saturday for the Libertarian National Convention in Washington, D.C. Not all party faithful in attendance were pleased with the convention’s offer to Trump to speak, which energized the small party’s usually relatively sleepy convention but left party members greatly outnumbered by supporters of the president.

    ATF agents cut off the electricity to Bryan Malinowski's Little Rock home before executing their search warrant March 19. None of the agents wore body cameras, and they covered Malinowski's doorbell camera with tape to hide their actions. Fifty-seven seconds after kicking down the front door, Malinowski was fatally shot in the head. His wife, Maer Malinowski, was pulled out of her home wearing only bedclothes and forced into the back of a squad car, where she was held against her will for four hours in 34-degree weather, despite her frequent pleas to check on her dying husband. "If that...
  • House passes bill to ban noncitizens from voting in local DC elections

    The House approved a bill Thursday that seeks to ban non-U.S. citizens from voting in local Washington elections, once again taking aim at the capital city through legislation. The four-page measure, which passed 262-143, would forbid any noncitizens from voting in elections for municipal office or on ballot initiatives and referendums. Federal law prohibits noncitizens from voting in any federal-level election. The D.C. Council approved a measure in 2022 that added eligible noncitizen residents to the definition of a qualified elector for local elections. Seven D.C. voters filed a lawsuit against the city’s Board of Elections, but a federal court...
  • Did terrorists just do a dry run at a Marine base? Team Biden needs to fill the nation in

    Did terrorists just scout out a US Marine base? Amazingly, Americans have no idea one way or the other — despite a troubling incident this month suggesting that’s exactly what happened. In fact, it took nearly two weeks for top brass at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia just to alert its own rank-and-file about an attempt by two Jordanians to drive their box truck onto the base before being blocked by guards. That’s outrageous enough, yet the story still remains far from clear. Indeed, a mountain of questions need answers.
  • Trump-Backed Candidate Wins House Special Election in California, Adding to GOP's Majority

    California Assemblyman Vince Fong appears to have handily won California’s special election yesterday, bringing the Republican Party’s slim majority in the House up to five. With 87 percent of the votes in, The New York Times had Fong up over opponent and fellow Republican Mike Boudreaux 60.2 to 39.8, making it essentially impossible for Boudreaux to win unless something happens to change that math. Fong won the special election to replace former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who resigned at the end of 2023 after being ousted from the speakership and endorsed Fong in the race. ... Fong had also been...

    For anyone who thought 2024 was going to be free and fair, please disabuse yourself of that idea immediately.The progressive Democrats constantly tell us that illegal aliens are not voting in our elections, because of course it’s illegal. Well, so is crossing the border illegally, but we’ve seen how that has gone—how many tens of millions of illegals are actually living here? (I suspect Ann Coulter is right when she puts that number around 50 million.)Yet, those very same progressive Democrats have been teaching “non-citizens” how to participate in what should be, American elections. The District of Columbia Board of...

    Washington DC's woke Mayor Muriel Bowser will travel on a taxpayer-funded jaunt to Las Vegas with her team just hours from now. It comes just weeks after the Democrat faced backlash for attending the lavish Masters golf tournament that cost $5,000 per person, Bowser personally revealed. The mayor will travel with a team of 14 on an 'economic mission' to the International Council of Shopping Centers at the Wynn Las Vegas on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, according to her public calendar.

    Biden's DOJ then raided Lauren's home, where they found something shocking: the bodies of 5 nearly full-term infants that had been thrown in the trash at Washington Surgi-Clinic. All 5 bodies showed clear evidence of partial-birth abortion and even post-birth infanticide. The abortionist in charge of the facility, Cesare Santangelo, had previously admitted in a hidden camera investigation to leaving living babies to die.

    The Biden administration is urging Arab states to join a "peacekeeping" force which would control Gaza once the war ends, the Financial Times reported. The initiative aims to fill the vacuum which would be created in Gaza once Hamas is toppled and until a "credible Palestinian security apparatus" could be established. Among the countries the US has been discussing its plans with are Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Morocco, all of which are "considering" the initiative. The US has also spoken to Saudi Arabia about the plan, but the Saudis are unwilling to deploy their own forces to the...

    US national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on Monday that President Joe Biden's administration does not view the killings of Palestinian Arabs in Gaza by Israel in its war with Hamas as genocide, Reuters reported. Sullivan said the United States wants to see Hamas defeated, adding that Gazans caught in the middle of the war were in "hell" and that a major military operation by Israel in Rafah would be a mistake. "We do not believe what is happening in Gaza is a genocide. We have been firmly on record rejecting that proposition," he said. .....

    Ex-White House press secretary Jen Psaki is being forced to retract a false claim in her new book that President Biden did not check his watch during the dignified transfer of 13 US troops killed in the Afghanistan withdrawal. In her May 2024 tome “Say More,” Psaki attacked her former boss’s critics, who she said seized on the callous moment to make “him appear insensitive, concerned only about how much time had passed,” claiming he “only looked at his watch after the ceremony had ended.” Axios first reported on the book’s inaccuracy. Photos, videos and media fact-checkers at the time...

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, has threatened former President Donald Trump with a new investigation into his reported promises to Big Oil. The Washington Post reported this week of a deal that Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, reportedly offered to top oil executives at a Mar-a-Lago dinner last month—raise $1 billion for his campaign and he will reverse dozens of President Joe Biden's environmental regulations and prevent new rules, according to people with knowledge of the dinner. According to the Post's sources, Trump said gifting him $1 billion would be a "deal," because of the taxation and...

    Biden administration officials are said to be offering Israel exact locations of Hamas leaders in a bid to stop the IDF invading the Gazan city of Rafah. The president has reportedly offered highly-classified information that also includes the locations of Hamas' secret tunnels to try and stave-off what he fears could be a humanitarian catastrophe. The detailed and sensitive talks serve to illustrate the stakes facing Israel and the U.S. Rafah is the last city in Gaza that has not been bombed by Israel. According to the Washington Post, the U.S. is also proposing to assist in the construction of...

    A US congressman and war hero says Israel should level Gaza and 'kick the s**t out of' the Palestinians who live there. Congressman Brian Mast was confronted by pro-Palestine protesters as he walked with his cane along the halls of the US Capitol, and gave them a very blunt answer. Jewish activist Medea Benjamin asked the 12-year US Army veteran, who lost both his legs to an IED in Afghanistan, if he agreed there should be a ceasefire in Gaza as 'the world is asking for one'.

    D.C. police took down a pro-Palestinian encampment at The George Washington University early Wednesday morning and arrested 33 protesters, D.C. police Chief Pamela Smith announced during a news conference Wednesday. … The police chief said there were many indicators that the protests were becoming more volatile, outlining intelligence that officers had been collecting over the past few days. “This started last Thursday, when a GW campus police officer was pushed by protesters and an item was grabbed out of the police officers hand during the performance of her duties,” Smith said. Officers reported that members of the pro-Palestinian protests assaulted...

When the world turned its back on me, Bobby leaned in,” Spacey posted on X. “He’s a formidable fighter for justice and a loyal friend that’s not afraid to stand up for what he believes.”
