    Republicans on Wednesday dug up past instances of Democratic House impeachment managers and President Biden using the words “fight” or “fight like hell” — one of the key allegations against former President Donald Trump at his Senate trial. The Save America PAC’s “Trump War Room” tweeted a “FLASHBACK” screenshot of lead House manager Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) invoking the notion of combat to block Republican efforts to swiftly replace the late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death in September. “The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care...

    WASHINGTON — Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, sounded a dire alarm on Sunday amid spiking Covid-19 cases across America as she expressed frustration with government officials who ignore public health guidance as caseloads and deaths rise. Speaking during an interview on NBC News' “Meet the Press,” Birx said that it’s especially frustrating to see governors and local officials refuse to enact the same mitigation strategies they used to successfully curb the virus’ spread in the summer.
  • Romney Scolds Trump for Fighting On: ‘Difficult to Imagine a Worse, More Undemocratic Action’ by President

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) excoriated President Donald Trump and his allies early Friday morning for continuing to fight for a clearer picture of attempts at election fraud in key swing states. Romney alleged the president had “failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy” in a host of cases the president’s team has launched in selected battleground states where he trails Joe Biden.
  • Watch In the Blink of an Eye: CNN's 'Magic Board' Subtracts 20,000 Trump Votes and Adds Them to Biden's Tally in Pennsylvania

    I was sitting here watching John King this morning with one of CNN's many White House correspondent's and the old dude reporting from the White House calls John King's Election Board - "The Magic Board", as King is telling him that the MATH does not work out for Donald Trump after the election and Trump should resign to the fact that he lost he election to a washed-up career politician. There is now starting to appear on-line many videos that are showing instancing where Republican votes are disappearing off their tally board's and Democrat scores are gaining the votes that...

    "Those are the reasons why Trump fights now for every vote. He feels that his voters, and Americans in general, have been ill-served by a biased media and a Democratic Party that have condoned election cheating and trickery as long as it serves their increasingly far-left ideological leanings."

    <p>I still remember my first ice hockey fight. All the movies I’d watched as a kid, where highly choreographed fight scenes looked like expertly planned dance routines, had horribly lied to me. By the time I realised I was in a fight, at the tender age of 16, it was already half over and I’d taken three or four solid shots to the face and my jersey had been pulled well over my head, rendering me blind. The experience was jarring: unfiltered chaos, blurred vision in one eye from an errant thumb poke, a ringing eardrum from getting punched in the side of the head, the taste of my own blood and swallowing a tooth. There was just disorganised, violent confusion with a skyrocketing heart rate and buckets of adrenaline. I held my breath as my body went into shock and when it was over I threw up in the penalty box from exhaustion, even though the whole thing lasted less than 45 seconds.</p>

    "For a long time the English were considered the strongest," he said, but they were no match for Russians with martial-arts training. "There were guys sitting there with a Birmingham banner and we went up to them. 'Either we're taking your banner or you stand up and fight for it.' The Birmingham guys decided they didn't need the banner that much." The violence on Marseille's streets and in the stadium was greeted with jokes and even praise from some Russian lawmakers and officials. President Vladimir Putin called the fighting "sad," then questioned "how 200 Russian fans could beat up several...
  • South Sudan: Fresh fighting flares, five years into civil war

    The skeletons of burnt-out vehicles lie scattered all the way from Bentiu's landing strip to the camp for internally-displaced people. There has been fighting here in the capital of South Sudan's Unity State since the country's civil war began in 2013. Today, after a year of relative calm, violence has again surged between government forces and the opposition. The head of the United Nations Mission in Unity, Hiroko Hirahara, believes that this is linked to an upcoming round of peace talks. "People started becoming a bit more political because they wanted to position themselves," she told Euronews' reporter in South...

    The German intelligence agency refused claims by Minister Gabriel that “PKK is involved with narcotics trafficking and extortion”, stating that PKK raises funds through donations and sales of publications, and a portion of the funds go to fighting ISIS. Germany’s domestic intelligence institution Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution announced their 2016 report in a press conference held in Berlin on July 4. Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution Chairperson Hans-Georg Maassen and Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière were present in the press conference and the report they announced included information on institutions and organizations that...

    Massive brawls and food-court fights played out at more than a dozen malls across the country in what proved to be a chaotic day after Christmas. Some of the mayhem was captured on social media. The chaos prevented some shoppers from grabbing clothes off clearance racks and returning gifts. The mall incidents, which ranged from minor melees to mass evacuations, occurred from Colorado to Tennessee and Texas to New Jersey. Police in some cities are investigating the role social media may have played in organizing the disturbances. The motive behind the mall brawls is not yet known. Here's what happened...
  • Hillary's Support Among Democrats Fades As Party Crisis Looms (Rat high drama alert)

    05/18/2016 10:39:29 PM PDT · by Zakeet · 53 replies
    Party Politics: Every day there are stories about how deeply troubled the Republican Party is with Donald Trump as its presumptive candidate. But, if anything, the Democratic Party is in far worse shape. Think about it. Democrats still can't decide if Hillary Clinton is electable - in fact, her support has diminished as the primary season has dragged on. There are fears of a party revolt by Bernie Sanders supporters at the July convention, and there’s a huge rift forming between two of its major factions. Plus, polls show that the supposedly can't-possibly-win Donald Trump is now close to Clinton....
  • Why Leftists Want to Draft Women

    Front Page Magazine ^ | 2/16/2016 | Daniel Greenfield
    Hillary Clinton had endorsed forcing women to register for a draft. Now the issue is taking on new urgency. Despite the left's anti-draft posturing, it has fond memories of its protests during the Vietnam War and it is the biggest supporter of bringing back the draft. Proposals to move to a draft army invariably come from Democrats in Congress and left-wing pundits who believe that a draft will create a higher barrier to any future conflict. Forcing women to register raises the barrier even higher. And anything that makes it harder for the military to function properly is also part...

    Mainly because he refuses to really fight. Please note that there is a difference between the confident language of victory and the smug language of triumphalism. Barack Obama’s got the latter down pat. With a smirk on your face and your nose in the air, you remind everyone that you won, and you’re going to do what you want to do - and even if you’re not supposed to do it, who’s going to stop you? We’ve always known he can talk like that. But the language of victory? Sure, you can cite the whole oceans-rising-planet-healing thing, but even there...

    The leader of Islamic State has declared 'Islam is the religion of fighting' in a rare audio message which called on all Muslims to 'fight for the caliphate'. Islamic State released the message yesterday claiming it was from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the extremist group executed 26 civilians before reaching the gates of an ancient Syrian city amid fears they could destroy it. The audio message posted on militant websites features a voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi's exhorting all Muslims to take up arms and fight on behalf of the group's self-styled caliphate. In it the leader, who...

    A hearing was held this evening, concluding just before 10 p.m., on the attempt of the defense to introduce expert testimony as to text messages regarding fighting found on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone. The judge previously had ruled that such social media evidence could not be mentioned in jury selection or opening statements. A large group of texts and photos were released in late May, but only some of them are at issue now. [video] The judge expressed concern (full embed below) about admissibility on ground of authentication, that the defense could prove that the texts were to and from...
