    Nikki Haley will win the Washington, D.C., Republican presidential primary, netting her first victory of the GOP nominating process, Decision Desk HQ projects. Haley garnered 1,274 votes to former President Trump’s 676 with all precincts reporting, according to DDHQ. The win for the former United Nations ambassador breaks a streak of more than a half dozen victories for Trump to start out the GOP contests for the nomination. It’s a much-needed triumph for Haley to show she can top Trump somewhere, but she still has a long road ahead of her.

    Hunter Biden was paid $1 million by Chinese firm CEFC to act as attorney for their employee, Dr Patrick Ho, but now Ho is threatening to sue the first son within seven days unless he gets the money back — because he claims Hunter did no legal work for him. Ho sent a legal letter to Hunter last week requesting that their attorney-client agreement be terminated immediately and threatening legal action unless he receives a detailed list of services provided by Hunter and reimbursement for the unused funds, as laid out in the 2017 contract. Ho’s letter, sent by Hong...

    The newly disclosed video shows a dark SUV pulling up to the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C., at 9:44 a.m. on Jan. 6, 2021. It sits for several minutes until a uniformed man with a bomb-sniffing dog enters from the right and steps up to the vehicle. The driver complies with his command, the dog sniffs inside and outside the car which is soon allowed to enter the parking garage. The man and his dog exit back to the right.This scene is unremarkable except for one detail: The uniformed man and his trained canine came within...

    'You have to have blinders on to not see that there have been problems'... WHITEWATER, Wis.—The migrants began to trickle into Whitewater, a sleepy town of 15,000 an hour west of Milwaukee, toward the end of 2021. Prior to their arrival, local news and political debates generally revolved around school fundraisers or the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's D3 athletics. Today, residents are focused on their 1,000 new neighbors, who mostly hail from Nicaragua and Venezuela and largely keep to the shadows because they lack official identification. Locals say the real number of migrants in the town could easily be double the...

    California Governor Gavin Newsom is in Washington, D.C. for the annual Governor's Conference. Yesterday he and other governors were at the White House meeting with Biden. As Newsom was schmoozing with DHS Secretary Mayorkas, hundreds of illegal aliens were being released in San Diego. Border Patrol dropped them off at a San Diego bus stop instead of at a local reception center that serves as a staging center. The local center ran out of money sooner than expected. The shortage in funding for the reception center happened because this area of California is experiencing a flood of illegal immigrants, thanks...

    Below is my column in The Hill on the trouble brewing at CBS over the seizure of the files of acclaimed investigative reporter Catherine Herridge. The column broke the story on the uproar over not just her being laid off but her being locked out from her files. I am now hearing from CBS sources that the network is moving toward a resolution to turn over the files after the outcry. However, the concerns over Herridge’s firing and the network’s handling of her confidential notes continues to draw fire from journalists and commentators. The union issued a statement (below) after...

    It has been clear for quite some time that the Biden regime, despite its show of support for Israel, is really on the side of Hamas. Now the regime is in serious talks to respond to Hamas’ brutal and inhuman murder of 1,200 Israelis on Oct. 7, 2023 by giving it the biggest reward of all: a Palestinian state.If you are skeptical that Old Joe and his henchmen are really on Hamas’ side, consider the fact that, in November, they enabled the release of ten billion dollars in frozen funds to the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hamas’ primary financier. That...

    WASHINGTON — Newly unearthed footage from Jan. 6, 2021, appears to show a rioter — a man identified in an NBC News story nearly two years ago — firing a gun into the air outside the Capitol during the attack. Online sleuths who have aided in hundreds of Jan. 6 prosecutions say he is the same man they identified to the FBI who is currently individual No. 200 on the bureau’s Capitol Violence page, which he first appeared on three years ago. Videos and photographs from the Capitol on Jan. 6 showed him with what appears to be a gun...

    Documents discovered at the National Archives in Washington show that former President Abraham Lincoln pardoned the great-great-grandfather of President Joe Biden, a Union Army civilian employee named Moses Robinette, The Washington Post reported Monday. Joseph Robinette Biden's ancestral line has long been known and includes Moses Robinette among his paternal ancestors from western Maryland, but little has been chronicled about the man until his court-martial records were discovered. The story dates to March 21, 1864 during the Civil War, when a fight broke out in one of the mess tents near Beverly Ford, Virginia, between Robinette and Union Army civilian...

    A Washington DC man who thought he won a jackpot worth $340m (£270m) has sued Powerball and the DC Lottery, who claim they published his numbers by mistake. John Cheeks said he felt "numb" when he first saw Powerball's winning numbers matched his ticket in January 2023. But when Mr Cheeks presented his ticket to the Office of Lottery and Gaming (OLG), his claim was denied. "One of the claims agents told me my ticket was no good, just to throw it in the trash can," he told the BBC. Instead, Mr Cheeks held on to that ticket and found...

    A green nonprofit that is indirectly funded by a foreign billionaire is pressuring broadcasters to drop advertisements that criticize the Biden administration’s massive electric vehicle (EV) agenda. Climate Power wrote to numerous broadcasters this week demanding that they stop airing American Fuel and Petrochemicals Manufacturers (AFPM)-funded advertisements in swing state markets that rail against President Joe Biden’s plans to impose widespread EV adoption in the coming years. The charitable organization affiliated with Hansjorg Wyss, a Swiss health care mogul and billionaire philanthropist, donates millions of dollars to the Fund for a Better Future, which was the fiscal sponsor for Climate...

    Republican lawmakers and pro-life activists gathered Wednesday on Capitol Hill to call for transparency and clarity regarding the deaths of “The Five,” preemie-sized aborted babies whose bodies are in the possession of Washington, D.C., officials. Pro-life activist Terrisa Bukovinac, the founder of the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising and the co-discoverer of “The Five,” spoke out on Wednesday at the House Triangle, as did other pro-life activists, such as Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America and the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, a pro-life activist who has asked the city to allow him to give the babies a respectful burial. Mahoney said that...

    Then-top Biden aide Susan Rice would privately slam fellow Cabinet member Xavier Becerra as a “b—h a–’’ and “idiot’’ over the migrant crisis — yet another sign of a White House in turmoil, a report said Monday. Rice insulted the Health and Human Services secretary and clashed with Vice President Kamala Harris, Homeland Security adviser Liz Sherwood-Randall and other officials while coordinating the administration’s border response as President Biden’s domestic policy adviser from January 2021 to May 2023, Axios reported. Sources told the outlet that Rice’s ire for Becerra stemmed from his failure to secure additional sheltering spaces for child...

    This is sounds like gaslighting by the U.S. Mint while they look to make a tidy little profit too. Maybe the Mint ought to just call it the Lon Horiuchi federal marksmanship award?!? Here’s the description: Bronze miniature replica of the Congressional Gold Medal honoring the U.S. Capitol Police and those who protected the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. 1.5 inches in diameter. Every day, the United States Capitol Police protects the U.S. Capitol, Members of Congress, staff, journalists, and the visiting public.

    FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL—Sen. Ted Cruz has called for the Washington, D.C., medical examiner to conduct a “proper investigation” into whether a D.C. abortionist illegally aborted babies in violation of the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act. Cruz, R-Texas, reacted Wednesday to a Daily Signal report in which a lawyer alleged that the Department of Justice had advised the medical examiner to discard the remains of five aborted preemie-sized babies. Those babies’ remains are from an abortion clinic in Foggy Bottom, a neighborhood of the District of Columbia. Pro-life activists believe the baby bodies are evidence that a D.C. abortionist was...

    In an 11th-hour victory, leading pro-life attorneys have stopped Washington D.C. from destroying the bodies of five full-term aborted babies who were killed in potentially illegal abortions. Two years ago, pro-life advocates made a horrific discovery when they opened boxes of medical waste from a late-term abortion facility in Washington, D.C. Inside were the bodies of 115 aborted babies, including five who appeared to be nearly full term and possibly victims of illegal partial-birth abortions or infanticide. However, D.C. officials seemingly have done nothing to investigate the horrific discovery despite repeated calls from U.S. Congressional leaders and pro-life advocates. Undercover...
