    The key to voter enthusiasm in this midterm cycle may be the same as it is in real estate: Location, location, location. ABC Newsí Rick Klein takes a look at the current generic-ballot polling from the latest Washington Post/ABC partnership and notes that the double-digit Democratic lead would normally spell curtains for the GOP. However, Klein points out that almost all of it comes in districts well in hand for Democrats ó and that the battleground looks different: If this was a national referendum on President Donald Trump, heíd be set for a thumping, or a shellacking, or whatever word...

    The Cherokee Nation issued a statement Monday on Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's DNA test results. Sen. Warren released her DNA report in response to President Donald Trump taunting her for her saying she was part Native American. Sen. Warren released her 23 and Me report and it stated that "the great majority of (Warren's) identifiable ancestry is European." However, the report adds, "The analysis also identified 5 genetic segments as Native American in origin at high confidence." This afternoon the Cherokee Nation released a statement that said in part that DNA tests are useless in determining tribal citizenship and people...

    Sheís the Richard Blumenthal of intersectionality, minus the apology. Do you want to know what media bias looks like? Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as vindicating her. Down is up. Black is white. The imperatives of the resistance apparently dictate propping up a liar ó as long as she might be able to beat President Trump in 2020. Here are the facts. For an extended period of...

    Hillary Clinton doesn't believe former President Bill Clinton's 1990s extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky constituted an abuse of power. "No. No," Hillary Clinton said during an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning" when asked directly whether her husband took advantage of his position in 1995 to instigate sexual relations with Lewinsky when she was 22 years old.

    House Republicans still want Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier, to comply with their subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill despite his plans to invoke Fifth Amendment protections, a GOP House Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News on Friday. The tension with the Fusion GPS co-founder comes as new details emerge about just how widely distributed the unverified and politically funded dossier was back in 2016. A Fox News review of congressional testimony, British court records, emails and other documents indicate that at least five sources worked through other government agencies or fed the dossier...

    Republicans are ecstatic and Democrats are livid about Brett Kavanaughís Senate confirmation as a Supreme Court justice. But while the Supreme Court is important, many Americans tend to exaggerate its powers. Democrats still firmly control the nationís district courts and circuit courts of appeals, where virtually all federal judicial decisions are made. Even if Republicans keep control of the Senate in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, the balance of power on these courts isn't going to change in the next two years. The Supreme Court grants oral arguments to about 80 cases a year. The nationís highest court decides another...

    A story broke last week that an Arabic journalist named Jamal Khashoggi who was working for the Washington Post had disappeared and was presumed dead. The official story is that Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on the afternoon of October 2. Immediately (and suspiciously) media stories that appeared to be coordinated appeared, pointing the finger of blame for Khashoggiís disappearance at Saudi Arabia, in general, and at the countryís Crown Prince, Mohammad Bin Salman, in particular. It was alleged by anonymous sources for several days that Khashoggi had been abducted and then killed at...

    The mainstream media is hellbent on ruining President Trump's reputation. Their latest ploy has been blaming him for Ford Motor's recent announcement of layoffs within the company. The liberal media claimed that Trump's tariffs were to blame. A spokesperson for Ford spoke to Watchdog.org, however, and explained that the whole thing is a "MISCHARACTERIZATION." The most recent job cuts will have an impact on salaried employees only. Manufacturing employees will not be affected. The spokesperson also explained that it has nothing to do with President Trump's tariffs. "The reports you have read about our organization redesign work being related to...

    In Cinncinatti, President Donald J. Trump rankled the mainstream media yet again this weekend with seemingly complimentary comments regarding Confederate General Robert E. Lee as a "great" military leader. Yet, a full tale of the tape reveals that the commander-in-chief only made such comments as a preface to heralding Union General and United States President Ulysses S. Grant as a truly exceptional leader who was finally able to help President Abraham Lincoln defeat the South.First, NBC News tweeted an edited clip without context that made it appear as if President Donald J. Trump were discussing only Robert E. Lee.†In the...

    For those who have been active in trying to rescue babies and their mothers from the horrific evil of abortion, the piercing screams and the sound of the gnashing of teeth are familiar. We hear them often when we fight for the lives of the innocent. The darkness of evil infiltrated the nationís capital during the Senate confirmation process of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. You could feel it as the shrills of protesters interrupted the hearings and the confirmation vote. Senators were confronted by satanic threats so real that many still require police escorts. Justice Kavanaugh and...
