Bernie Sanders (I-VT), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and more. McConnell’s favorable figures are toward the bottom half of the list, garnering a 25 percent favorable rating — 21 points lower...

    Donald Trump returned to the airwaves this morning with his rhetoric about President Obama’s job performance remarkably toned down. Trump gave Obama high marks for his handling of Osama bin Laden and said about Obama, “he’s riding high, he’s doing well and I thought he did a good job on 60 Minutes.” Trump instead turned his focus to Pakistan and to the online company Groupon. Trump suggested he knew two months ago that Bin Laden was in Pakistan, and declared Pakistan should no longer receive any aid “unless they get rid of their nuclear weapons,” since “much like China, these...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration announced Tuesday that it’s seeing a big uptick in the number of new customers buying private health insurance for 2023 from the Affordable Care Act’s marketplace. Nearly 3.4 million people have signed up for coverage — an increase of 17% compared to the same time last year. The boost in enrollment comes as the number of uninsured Americans this year reached a historic low of 8%. The boost in enrollment is largely driven by generous subsidies -- extended through 2025 in the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief law -- that keep monthly premiums payments...

    Between Saturday and Sunday Trump's twitter account followers grew back to its original 83 million followers. Those were likely already in his account. They were just deposited back in it. Since then an additional 4.4 million followers have come into his account. These are new people. We'll see if this pace of new additions continues. Trump as per his agreement with Truth Social can't have his stuff reposted for at least 5 hours. This five hours could be used to curate his tweets on Truth Social. The Tweets on Truth Social with the most likes over the next five hours...

    The incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday formally accused the FBI of meddling in the last four elections to the detriment of Republicans, citing the Russia collusion probe, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story and the raid on Donald Trump's home . Maybe it'd be nice if the FBI and the Justice Department just stayed out of it and let we the people decide who we think should represent us, who we think should lead us," he added. "That’s supposed to be how America works. "So this is the focus on the Judiciary Committee, the...

    During Donald Trump’s presidency, The Washington Post kept a running tally of his alleged lies and/or misleading statements. But, when Joe Biden became president, the Post fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, announced an end to the database operation, saying: “Maintaining the Trump database over four years required about 400 additional 8-hour days over four years beyond our regular jobs for three people.” Looks like supply-chain issues at the Post.So, while the Post continues to fact-check Biden, it discontinued the Trump-era practice of running the tote board because, after all, Biden is not Trump, and the Post undoubtedly expects Biden to be more...

  • BREAKING NEWS: Trump inaugural committee chair Tom Barrack found NOT GUILTY on counts of acting as an unregistered agent for the UAE and lying to the FBI

    UK Daily Mail ^ | 11/04/2022 | Morgan Phillips
    Tom Barrack, Trump's longtime billionaire friend and 2016 fundraiser, has been acquitted on all charges related to accusations he lobbied Trump on behalf of the United Arab Emirates without registering as a foreign agent. He also stood accused of then lying to the FBI about those contacts. The jury deliberated for about two days at federal court in Brooklyn before finding Barrack not guilty. Prosecutors alleged Barrack had traded on his decades-long friendship with the then-president to give UAE officials access to and insider information on the Trump White House and 2016 campaign. Acting as a foreign agent without registering...

I will work with anyone from either party to advance Alaska’s priorities, and I will always stand up to any politician or special interest that threatens our way of life,” she said in the ad released Tuesday. “I’m Lisa Murkowski, and I approve this message. I’d be honored to earn your vote.” It is not the first time Murkowski pledged to help the Biden administration further its agenda. She stated in September she would help the Biden...

    Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Monday filed a motion demanding Donald Trump pay Clinton’s legal fees after a Bill Clinton judge tossed the RICO lawsuit over the Russian collusion canard. President Trump filed a federal RICO suit in Miami, Florida in March against Hillary Clinton and others over the Russia collusion hoax orchestrated by the Clinton campaign in 2016 to undermine Trump’s candidacy and derail his presidency. Trump asked for treble damages of expenses and losses of more than $24 million. In April President Trump requested the Clinton-appointed judge overseeing his Russiagate case against Hillary Clinton and others be removed from...

The pandering those libtards on The View did to this ungainly dullard, because she's the daughter of their queen, is breathtaking and gag-inducing at the same time.]

    Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said Sunday she would rather not see the U.S.-Mexico border close despite threats by President Trump to prevent certain groups of migrants from crossing into the U.S. "We would prefer that we keep it open, so let's work really hard to make sure that we're addressing the asylum seekers before they actually come over the border," Ernst said on CNN's "State of the Union."The Iowa Republican was responding to Trump's suggestion that he may close the southern border if Mexico does not agree to hold migrants while the U.S. processes their asylum claims. "I think the...

    Former campaign vice chair for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, Huma Abedin, told "The View" hosts on Thursday that Clinton faced "impossible standards" as a woman in politics. Co-host Ana Navarro said "politics have become a personality contest" and asked Abedin about Vice President Kamala Harris being "judged" by the same "phantom ideal woman" as Clinton. "I know the challenge and you know this well that Hillary had to face just as a woman in politics," Abedin said. "All these impossible standards, you know, she needs to be taller, shorter, talk this way. This is annoying, you know, she looks...

    The collapse in oil prices is already a major cause of concern for countries heavily reliant on exports of the commodity. For some, it could be a matter of avoiding a severe recession. Here's why: For governments in oil-exporting countries to meet their spending commitments they need oil to remain above a certain price. With oil prices under $87 a barrel, countries that rely on high oil prices, including Venezuela, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, may have a reason to be concerned. This chart shows the price per barrel that the six most exposed countries need to meet their national budgets....

    Ukrainian-Democratic coordination traces back to 2014, when then-Obama Vice President Joe Biden helped install Petro Poroshenko in Kiev. Then came collusion against Trump. Six years ago, before Russia’s full-scale invasion of their country, the Ukrainians bet that a Hillary Clinton presidency would offer better protection from Russian President Vladimir Putin, even though he had invaded Crimea during the Obama-Biden administration, whose Russian policies Clinton vowed to continue. Working with both the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign, Ukrainian government officials intervened in the 2016 race to help Clinton and hurt Donald Trump in a sweeping and systematic foreign influence operation...

    Igor Danchenko is on trial, but so is the FBI. That is the theme of Russiagate special counsel John Durham’s prosecution of Danchenko, heading into its third day of trial in Alexandria, Va., federal court. Danchenko is charged with five counts of lying to the FBI about two of his sources for what became the infamous “Steele dossier” — a compilation of faux intelligence reports, mainly authored by former British spy Christopher Steele, that portrayed the GOP’s then-presidential candidate, Donald Trump, as a clandestine agent of Russia. It remains to be seen whether Durham can prove these charges: The allegation...

    In my opinion, the Jan. 6 Committee has had two main aims that have nothing to do with the riot, justice, or “threats to democracy.”It’s always been about trying to damage President Donald Trump so that he can’t run or win again, and to hurt the Republicans’ chances in the midterms.If you understand it through that lens, then you know that they are largely admitting defeat on one of those major goals with their latest action.Committee Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MI) said that they would not be putting out a report until after the election. They will be having a...
