  • Casey Just Torpedoed Ron’s Iowa Effort – Casey DeSantis Asks Voters from Every State to Descend on Iowa and Support Her Husband

    During a Fox News interview, the Florida governor’s wife, Casey DeSantis asks voters from all over America to descend on Iowa and caucus in support of Ron. Casey remarks, “You do not have to be a resident of Iowa to be able to participate in the Caucus.” You cannot legally caucus vote for a candidate in Iowa without being an Iowa resident. Notice how Ron just sits there and lets Casey say something that is transparently false. Martha MacCallum just sits there like a potted plant on behalf of Fox News. Unreal.

    Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis and her team of prosecutors want prison sentences for Donald Trump and his top allies, previously unreported emails reveal. The emails, first reported by the Guardian, reveal deepening hostilities between prosecutors and defendants in the monumental Georgia criminal case against Trump and his top allies. “We have a long road ahead,” Willis wrote in a previously unreported email last month to Trump’s attorneys. “Long after these folks are in jail, we will still be practicing law.” Willis and her team allege Trump and codefendants violated the racketeering statute as part of efforts to overturn...

    CNN announced it would host an upcoming debate for Republican candidates at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire on January 21 with one glaring issue: the school did not appear to know about such an event. New Hampshire Republican Party chairman Chris Ager was similarly perplexed, telling the New York Times that the announcement left him scratching his head. He also claimed that CNN still has not contacted him. The RNC announced Friday it would pause its participation in future 2024 GOP primary debates, at least for now.
  • There’s Only One Explanation For Hunter Biden’s Simple Indictment Taking So Long: 2020 Election Interference

    The Federalist ^ | 12/08/23 | Margot Cleveland
    The charges are so straightforward and stale, it is incomprehensible they were not brought against Hunter Biden in 2019 or early 2020.A federal grand jury in California returned a multi-count indictment against Hunter Biden late Thursday, charging the president’s son with multiple tax offenses. While the indictment detailed some sordid spending sprees by Hunter Biden, the crimes charged were so basic that to say Special Counsel David Weiss opted for the low-hanging fruit would be an understatement. Weiss instead limited the charges to the crimes that fell into his lap. The simplicity of the charges underscores the protect-Biden racket that...
  • Republican Adam Kinzinger says he's politically "homeless," and if Trump is the nominee, he'll vote for Biden

    Former Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger describes himself as politically "homeless," at odds with a party he views as "anti-constitutionalist." He believes former President Donald Trump will be the 2024 Republican nominee — and if that's the case, Kinzinger intends to vote for President Biden. Kinzinger was one of two Republicans to serve on the House select committee that investigated the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot that sought to derail congressional certification of Biden's victory. The other Republican on the committee was Liz Cheney, who says she's considering a third party bid for the White House, although she told CBS "Mornings"...
  • Arizona's Dem Governor Begs Biden for Border Help As Her State Is Overrun

    Arizona's Democrat Governor Katie Hobbs sent a letter to President Joe Biden on Friday making an "urgent request regarding our southern border" amid a surge of illegal immigrants that has completely overwhelmed border agents as the area becomes overrun and portions of a border wall have been breached. Saying she has "deep concern," Governor Hobbs lamented that "[f]or far too long, Arizona has continued to bear the burder of federal inaction in managing our southern border" and warned things have devolved into an "unmitigated humanitarian crisis" following the Biden administration's decision to close the Lukeville Port of Entry. That closure,...

    The 56-page indictment of Hunter Biden for tax evasion makes for racy reading, with the special counsel describing a four-year criminal pattern directed at maintaining Biden’s “extravagant lifestyle.” That lifestyle included massive expenses for strippers, sex clubs, fast cars and other distractions. The steps taken by Hunter to evade taxes are impressive, but not nearly as impressive as the efforts of the Justice Department to evade any direct implications for his father, President Biden.

    Former President Donald Trump is boasting a 59-point lead in the Republican primary race and four-point lead over President Biden, a recent Messenger/Harris survey found.The survey showed Trump leading Biden in a head-to-head race by four points — 46 percent to 42 percent. In that scenario, 13 percent remain undecided. Further, Trump enjoys an advantage among independent voters, 40 percent to Biden’s 34 percent. However, a quarter remain undecided.The entire survey was taken November 22-28, among 4,003 registered voters. Trump’s lead over Biden is well outside of the survey’s +/- 1.6 percent margin of error.Trump still enjoys a lead over...

    Nikki Haley's campaign is launching a new ad focusing on her foreign affairs views — and husband Michael Haley — as she tries to build on growing momentum in the dwindling Republican primary field. The ad opens with photographs that capture Michael Haley's 2013 homecoming from his first deployment to Afghanistan. During the 30-second spot, the former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the U.N. talks about the difficulties her husband experienced after his return. "When Michael returned from Afghanistan, loud noises startled him," Haley says in the ad. "He couldn't be in crowds. The transition was hard." The ad,...

    For Republican Rep. Nancy Mace, it seemed like a match made in heaven. The 46-year-old mother-of-two was stunned in May 2022 when her entrepreneur boyfriend Patrick Bryant got down on one knee and asked if she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. But less than 18 months since that heartwarming proposal, can exclusively reveal that the couple have broken up and are now in the middle of a messy legal fight over multi-million-dollar homes they bought together. According to four sources, the South Carolina lawmaker - who was one of the eight to vote former...

    Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona — A remote desert region along the southern border has become a makeshift international arrivals area for thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and Latin America hoping to work and reunite with family members in the U.S. Over the past few days, large groups of migrant men, women and some families with children have spent the night in a makeshift staging ground in this rugged section of the U.S.-Mexico border, waiting for overtaxed border officials to process them. Many expect to be released into the U.S. after being vetted by local Border Patrol agents, who...

    College Station, Texas GHRC — For Dr. Aaron Hultgren, the wake-up call was Hurricane Sandy in 2012, when the young emergency physician returned from an overseas trip and found his hospital without power, its doors closed to the public. Dr. Lakshmi Balasubramanian, an oncologist in Austin, Texas, signed up to study climate medicine after the death of a patient who was trapped in her home during a freak winter storm two years ago. Dr. Paul Charlton, a physician with the Indian Health Service in northwest New Mexico, was motivated by 2023’s summer heat wave, when temperatures cracked 100 degrees Fahrenheit...

    The University of Pennsylvania is expected to ask its president, Liz Magill, to resign Friday over growing outrage at her failure to condemn calls for the genocide of the Jewish people — a move celebrated by billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman, who said she would be “one down.” The Ivy League school’s board of trustees held an emergency meeting Thursday to deal with the fallout from Magill’s disastrous congressional testimony Tuesday, which has already driven a Wall Street titan to try to claw back a $100 million donation and led to calls for her ouster. Board chairman Scott Bok...

    The 56-page indictment of Hunter Biden for tax evasion makes for racy reading, with the special counsel describing a four-year criminal pattern directed at maintaining Biden’s “extravagant lifestyle.” *** The steps taken by Hunter to evade taxes are impressive, but not nearly as impressive as the efforts of the Justice Department to evade any direct implications for his father, President Biden. In that sense, the indictment itself is a marvel of evasion. There are three glaring omissions in the indictment that tend to shield critical payments and conduct that implicate the president. The Burisma-Ukrainian money First, the special counsel only...
