    Wang Wenliang, a Chinese national briefly shook Clinton’s hand at a 2013 fund-raiser in her home;a separate Wang company pledged $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, the first of several totaling $2 million. The Clinton fundraiser was one of at least three interactions between Wang and McAuliffe. McAuliffe initially said he could not remember ever meeting Wang, though he later clarified that his staff had informed him of several likely meetings. Among the donations of DOJ interestwere a total of $120,000 in contributions to McAuliffe from a company controlled by Wang. DOJ told McAuliffe's attorney there were questions over foreign sources...
  • Biden's odds lead cut in half after convention flop

    Gamblers are shying away from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden after he failed to get a substantial poll bounce from the Democratic National Convention, cutting in half his once-massive lead over President Trump. The latest from the betting-market site Smarkets still shows odds favoring a Biden win, but they are tightening, and Trump still has three more nights to make his case at the virtual Republican National Convention. The analysis shared with Secrets said, “Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump in our ‘Next President’ market has more than halved since its peak at the beginning of August. Trading activity on...
  • Scarborough Slobbers Over Biden's 'Reaganesque' Speech

    Gag me with a Shining City! On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough slobbered over Joe Biden's acceptance speech at the DNC convention last night. Scarborough had the chutzpah to repeatedly refer to Biden's address as "Reaganesque." Scarborough failed to recognize the glaring irony in two of his statements: 1. "The focus wasn’t on a flurry of policy prescriptions from the 1984 Democratic convention." Of course not! Because if Biden had exposed his far-left positions—from pro-abortion extremism to support for the economy-destroying Green New Deal—it would have been unpalatable to most Americans. Get the rest of the story and view the...
  • Morning Joe Can't Admit: Kamala Was Blah-Mala

    Is low energy contagious? Because in the big moment of her acceptance speech at the DNC last night, Kamala Harris was stricken by the same paucity of pizzazz that characterizes Ol' Joe. Simply put, Kamala Harris laid an egg. Of course, the liberal media can't, or won't admit that. But it was what the MSM didn't say that gives away the game. Take Morning Joe. You know that if there was something—anything!—that Mika Brzezinski could have found to praise in the speech, she would have spent much of the opening segment gushing over it. Instead, amazingly, Mika uttered not a...

    The truly radical and occasionally anti-American voices in the Democratic Party have been on full display during this week's Democratic National Convention, though not in the sight of most of the viewing public, Tucker Carlson said Wednesday. "You might not know this, but most of the actual convention events take place during daytime hours," the "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host explained. "The networks don't cover them. You have no idea they ever happen. There's a reason for that, obviously, but what a loss for the viewing public." At one event, Pastor Frederick Haynes III of Texas castigated President Trump and his...

    There wasn't much good to say about the opening night of the Democrat convention. It was panned even by liberal voices and a Never Trumper as, respectively, "a long YouTube ad you'd skip," "cheesy videos," and a "sad telethon." So, like much of the liberal media's DNC coverage, CNN's New Day was reduced to focusing on what they saw as a lonely point of light [sorry, H.W.]: Michelle Obama's speech. [snip] When co-host John Berman enthused over Michelle having worn a "VOTE" necklace, Camerota added "which people are now clamoring for this morning, of course." To which John Berman responded:...

    Editor's note: The column was co-authored by Bruce Abramson.  Anyone concerned with Jews and Israel should be horrified by the Democrats’ newly released 2020 platform. It directly threatens the Jewish state, employs double-talk calculated to stoke antagonism between the American left and Israel, and pays passing lip-service to opposing antisemitism, but in the gaslighting way Linda Sarsour and Ilhan Omar do; to deny it where it exists and point fingers elsewhere. In both narrative and policy, the platform crosses over the line into deep antisemitic territory. It’s a dangerous acceleration of an approach first tested when Joe Biden was Vice...

    Antifa violence will feature prominently in the lead-up to this year’s election. The left-wing movement’s numbers skyrocketed following President Trump’s 2016 victory and campaign staffers for Bernie Sanders have already predicted serious street violence should Trump win again. Same goes for a Sanders primary loss. As another staffer recently predicted, this year’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee will be rife with attacks on police; enough, apparently, to make the infamous 1968 convention in Chicago “look like a f—ing Girl Scout f—ing cookout.” With the weight of the Democrat machine now transparently behind former Vice President Joe Biden (who was the...

    The day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Linda Sarsour ascended the global stage at the Women’s March on Washington. Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angel a Davis, Van Jones — she is proving to be equally controversial. Sarsour (shown), a co-chair of the march, is a "Muslim feminist" and well-known Soros-funded activist in New York City, where she is executive director of the Arab Amer ican Association of New York (AAANY) and a director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), a radical migrant-refugee "rights" organization. She is also, say critics, connected...

    There’s a fascinating debate going on in Wisconsin. Current state law requires that in order to have a liquor license, bars must be closed between 2:30am and 6:00am on Saturday nights, and between 2:00am and 6:00am the rest of the week. But the Democratic National Committee chose Milwaukee to host their 2020 convention, and there are apparently many in the state who just don’t believe that twenty hours per day provide enough drinking time to manage the Democratic party’s national convention. They might need more. There is therefore an effort afoot, allegedly spearheaded by the Wisconsin Restaurant Association – which...

    The open extremists operating in the Democratic Party's midst. It turns out the man arrested for running a Muslim terrorist training compound in rural New Mexico is the son of an influential Democrat-connected jihadist imam who was close to the Blind Sheikh who orchestrated the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 that left six people dead. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., who is 39 or 40, of Clayton County, Ga., was arrested after authorities found 11 hungry, filthy children living in squalid conditions in a remote part of New Mexico. Wahhaj, who has been charged with felony child abuse,...

    The recently released batch of text message exchanges between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal the partisan FBI agents criticized Chelsea Clinton in harsh and personal terms. Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for sending anti-Trump texts, criticized Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Committee convention in late July. “Chelsea was awful. Tried to do Bills up close sharing. Didn’t come across as genuine. Plus, she has a HORRIBLE billv goat speech tic,” Strzok wrote in a text to Page — his mistress and FBI colleague on the investigation at the time. The insulting characterization...

    The first Muslim to deliver the daily prayer to the U.S. House of Representatives was black convert Siraj Wahaj in 1991. .... Later, in 1995, he was a character witness for Omar Abdel Rahman, or blind sheikh, who was found guilty of conspiracy to overthrow the American government. The U.S. attorney for New York even listed Wahaj as an “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in that case. Yet, none of that seems to matter to Democrats intent on focusing on Islam as part of their party’s upcoming national convention with an event, “Jumah at the 2012 DNC.”...

    Four years ago, one of China’s largest agricultural importers sent representatives to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., hoping that meetings with elite party officials might yield business opportunities. The company, the Dandong Port Group, was particularly focused on the governors in attendance, according to an interview with Dandong’s general counsel broadcast by Chinese state television. But now, the company’s widening influence is coming under scrutiny by federal prosecutors, who are examining the relationship between Dandong’s wealthy and connected chairman, Wang Wenliang, and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a Democrat who was elected in 2013. A federal law enforcement...

    arly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

    Video about the possible use of seat-fillers at the 2016 Democrat Convention in Philadelphia. Normal seeming people, including a DNC delegate, talk on camera making the case that huge numbers of delegates left the convention. Empty seats were filled with paid actors. One delegate asserts that people present in the convention hall are portrayed as Bernie delegates but are again, paid actors. He notes he does not recognize these "new" people and doesn't believe they are delegates. Another man notes that the hall was extremely empty until paid actors showed up en masse and films the empty seats on his...

    Aszterbaum: ....The media mostly complied with the DNC in order to silence dissent. Bernie delegates were denied access to the convention floor until Hillary's operatives had taken up the seats closest to the stage, blocking dissenters from being heard or seen. White noise machines were installed over the Bernie delegates. Hillary delegates were given large signs and American flags and given instructions to block Bernie delegates from view, and to issue loud shouts of "Hillary!" and "USA!" whenever Bernie Delegates tried to bring important issues into the discussion on the convention floor using signs and three targeted chants: "No More...

    But, First… The reason we have to elect Donald Trump is because we need to numb the American people to the distortion and lies of the media and politicians. The more of this hysteria we experience, the tougher our emotional skin will become. Trump commented on Tuesday in a campaign rally that he could essentially find the cure for a terminal disease and the reaction from the media and his opponents would be negative. Essentially, there is no accountability for lies in our culture and very little incentive for the truth any longer. Sensationalism sells. Even worse, the distortion of...
