    President Trump on Saturday expressed confidence that rapper Kanye West — who recently announced that he plans to launch a late bid for the White House — could steal votes from Trump's presumptive Democratic opponent in November, former Vice President Joe Biden. "That shouldn’t be hard," Trump tweeted, referring to West taking votes away from Biden. "Corrupt Joe has done nothing good for Black people!"
  • Young White Mother Killed By Black Lives Matter Mob for Allegedly Saying ‘All Lives Matter,’ National Media Fully Ignores

    A 24-year-old mother was killed by a Black Lives Matter mob in Indianapolis last week, allegedly for saying “All Lives Matter.” Unlike Charlottesville, or any violence from the right, this killing was reported so quietly that barely anyone even noticed. Jessica Doty Whitaker was shot and killed following an altercation with Black Lives Matter thugs who were upset that she and her fiance had said “All Lives Matter” last Sunday. “According to the victim’s family, the shooting started with an argument over Black Lives Matter and language. Eventually the two sides separated and walked away from each other, until witnesses...

    Joe Biden once spoke about jailing employers who hire "illegals," said sanctuary cities shouldn't be allowed to violate federal law, and argued a fence was needed stop "tons" of drugs coming into the country from "corrupt Mexico." "Folks, I voted for a fence, I voted, unlike most Democrats -- and some of you won't like it -- I voted for 700 miles of fence," Biden told the group. "But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high -- unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and -- and you will not like this, and -- punish...
  • With FEMA aid to rebuild from riots denied, Minnesota looks elsewhere

    As Minnesota leaders pondered their next steps, it's not yet clear what other sources of funds they may tap. Denied federal aid to help rebuild burned-out, vandalized businesses in the wake of riots that followed George Floyd’s killing, Minnesota leaders pondered their next steps Saturday. But it’s not yet clear what other sources of funds they may tap. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on Friday denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for nearly $16 million in aid to help rebuild and repair structures in Minneapolis and St. Paul, many of them left in ruins by the riots and fires that...

    Former special counsel Robert Mueller, in a very rare move, has written an op-ed for The Washington Post defending his office's prosecution of Roger Stone and saying he is still a convicted felon and "rightly so" in light of President Donald Trump's commutation of Stone.
  • Joy Reid Regular: Biden Should Pardon All 78,000 'Non-Violent' Drug Criminals

    That should make a great bumper sticker: Vote Biden--He'll Pardon 78,000 Drug Criminals! Seriously, do hyper-partisan liberals believe they're doing Biden any favors with their extremist proposals for what he should do in office? Take Elie Mystal, a Joy Reid regular, on her MSNBC show on Saturday. Commenting on President Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's sentence, Mystal suggested that to "show Republicans," on his first day in office Biden should pardon all 78,000 "non-violent" federal drug criminals. How many of these "non-violent" offenders in fact have a history of violence? How many would go on to commit violence once released,...
  • Trump’s commutation of Stone’s sentence horrifies the left

    American Thinker ^ | July 11, 2020 | Andrea Widburg
    On Friday, President Trump commuted Roger Stone’s sentence on the ground that Stone was an unfortunate victim of the Democrats’ Russia hoax. Democrats and other leftists responded with the usual outrage. This outrage seems absurd when one considers the recent report that one of the leading Black Lives Matter fundraisers is Susan Rosenberg, a convicted domestic terrorist who was once on the FBI’s most-wanted list. Rosenberg is relevant to a discussion about Stone because Bill Clinton, on the last day of his presidency, commuted her 58-year-prison sentence after only 16 years. ... Leftists were more mellow when it came to...

    The deep state Republicans are alive and well and doing what you’d expect them to be doing. They are living proof that President Donald Trump is a genuine change agent. The world he is changing is their world, and they hate him for it. In the near future, these deep state Republicans will drop the pretense of still belonging to the Party of Abraham Lincoln and become Democrats. These are, after all, people who have grown deeply uncomfortable not just with President Trump but also with those Republicans (the vast majority) who are comfortable with President Trump (about 88 percent...
  • House Democrats promise investigations, legislation after Trump commutes Roger Stone

    House Democrats reacted furiously to President Trump’s Friday move to commute the prison sentence of political operative Roger Stone -- demanding an investigation and even legislation to stop similar commutations happening again. “President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement on Saturday. She went on to promise that Congress would “take action” to prevent future such commutations: “Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of...

    During his interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday night, President Donald Trump laid out his second-term agenda. He championed many important issues, like school choice, VA accountability and choice, defending the Second Amendment, and continuing his work of restoring the federal judiciary. First, the president mentioned he would lead the U.S. to “defeat the invisible enemy,” the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, “and we’re well on our way.” Trump noted that the “mortality rate is ten-fold down.” “We’re going to rebuild the economy, we’re going to bring back jobs from all of these foreign lands that have stolen our jobs on horrible...

    The polls have been in the news lately because Democrats are celebrating the lead Biden appears to hold while Republicans are worried that the Wuhan virus lockdowns and Black Lives Matters riots will harm Trump. Three news items, however, illustrate just how meaningless polls are in modern politics. The first item is the most worrying: According to an ABC News/Ipsos poll, 67% of Americans disapprove of what Trump has done regarding the Wuhan Virus. Yikes! Interestingly, the poll methodology does not say how the poll was weighted between Republicans and Democrats. It says only that it oversampled blacks and...

    The state appears to be posting backlogged cases as if they occurred on the days in question. Florida health officials appear to have inflated recent record coronavirus case numbers there by as much as 30%, according to an analysis of data released by the state's Department of Health. U.S. health officials have been warning for several weeks that COVID-19 case trends in Florida are pointing to a possible looming catastrophe as the state records ever-increasing numbers of the disease. After several months of flat infection rates, positive case results in Florida began rising slowly in mid-June before beginning a steep...

    No one should feel sorry for the Democratic Party because they are reaping what they’ve sown. From elected officials like Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) calling for the dismantling of America’s “oppressive” economic and political systems -- to the violent third world-like cities they run -- the Democratic Party is in a death spiral of its own making. We should be thankful. Democrats have had plenty of time to get it right. The Democratic Party is the oldest voter-based political party globally and the longest existing one in the United States. You’d think wisdom would come with time. Instead, look at...

    Newly released documents about the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn show additional “exculpatory evidence” linked to a Justice Department review of the case investigators built against him shortly after President Trump’s election, his lawyers argued in a court filing Friday. “These documents establish that on January 25, 2017 – the day after the agents ambushed him at the White House – the agents and DOJ officials knew General Flynn’s statements were not material to any investigation, that he was ‘open and forthcoming’ with the agents, that he had no intent to deceive them, and that he believed...
