    The accused gunman in Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder was “laughing” as he murdered 10 people and terrorized shoppers inside a King Soopers grocery store, police and a witness said. “We could hear a man chuckling,” shopper Angelina Romero-Chavez recalled hearing as she hid from the gunman while shots rang out around her. “Gunshots were close. We believe it was him chuckling,” the 23-year-old told the Denver Post. Police also radioed: “This guy is laughing at us,” according to records reviewed by the Denver Post

    The alleged gunman charged with slaughtering 10 people at a Colorado supermarket bought an assault rifle a week prior to the shooting — and was caught “playing” with it by a family member, according to new court documents. Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa purchased a Ruger AR-556 pistol on March 16 — six days before going on a deadly rampage at the King Soopers in Boulder, according to an affidavit unsealed Tuesday. His sister-in-law, whose name is redacted, told investigators that she saw Alissa, 21, “playing with a gun she thought looked like a ‘machine gun'” in the days prior to...

    At least 10 people have been killed, including a police officer, in a shooting at a supermarket in the US city of Boulder, Colorado less than a week after eight people were shot dead in the US city of Atlanta. Police arrested Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, of Arvada and charged him with 10 counts of first-degree murder, Boulder Police Chief Maris Harold said at a press conference. Alissa, who was shot in the leg, was in stable condition at an area hospital and was expected to be released later Tuesday, officials said. Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said...
  • Issa: If Newsom Doesn’t Take Recall Effort ‘Seriously, a Recall Is Inevitable’

    On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep.-Elect Darrell Issa (R-CA) stated that California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) “has to have a wake-up call” or he will end up like former Gov. Gray Davis, and that if Newsom “doesn’t take this very, very seriously, a recall is inevitable.” Issa said, “There’s huge building momentum, and you saw it with both in and out of state support for the recall. I think the important thing is that somebody has to have a wake-up call for the governor, or we’re going to go exactly down the road I...

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R) is returning to Capitol Hill to represent California’s 50th Congressional District, after being projected to defeat his Democratic opponent Ammar Campa-Najjar. Issa will replace former Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), who resigned following a series of legal woes, including the Justice Department charging him with wire fraud, falsifying campaign finances reports, prohibited use of campaign contributions and conspiracy to commit offenses. Issa previously served in California’s 49th District for more than a decade, which neighbors the 50th. By 2016, he faced a tough path to reelection in what was becoming an increasingly Democratic district, in part because...

    Darrell Issa, a nine-term congressman who retired last year, will run against fellow Republican Duncan Hunter in California’s 50th district. Republicans Carl DeMaio, a former city councilman in San Diego, and state senator Brian Jones are also challenging Hunter, who is not giving up his bid despite a looming trial on corruption charges. The “GOP Brawl,” as Politico put it, enhances the prospects of Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, who lost to Hunter by 3.4 percentage points last November. As Robin Abcarian of the Los Angeles Times explains, Campa-Najjar has been telling voters “Whether in two years, four years, or 10 years....

And on the eve before the case was go to a Grand Jury, the case was closed by then-FBI Director Robert Mueller and then-Attorney General Eric Holder. “This was the original pay-to-play scheme and it involves Mueller, Holder, (James) Comey and (Hillary) Clinton,” said Steve Morton, inventor and owner of a rare robotic ship and submarine stealth painting...

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) described last week’s grand jury indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence operatives — via allegations and information presented by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team — as part of “a game to get the public to see something that isn’t there.” Issa said, “The premise of the Russian probe is all about a collusion for which there’s not one piece of evidence after a year and a half, and the original investigation was tainted by Peter Strzok and his activities....... A lot of people missed it, but it’s not an accident that the downgrading of the offense...

    Democrats are locked in a battle to replace retiring Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), with no clear front-runner in what has become the most expensive House race in the country. More than a dozen candidates from both parties are competing for the seat in California’s “jungle” primary on Tuesday, where the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, advance to the general election in the fall. Issa, the outspoken former House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, represents one of three GOP-held districts in the state where a split electorate could give Republicans a shot at advancing a pair of candidates...

    'Jungle primary,' vote splitting could hurt Dems in effort to take seat held by Issa Pressure from national Democratic groups and state activists to support their candidate of choice and force other Democratic contenders to drop out is producing a backlash in the contest to control the Southern California congressional seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa. The Democratic infighting over the preferred party choice to run has intensified in recent weeks, echoing clashes between Washington's Democratic establishment and progressive groups on the ground in Texas for the chance to take on GOP Rep.

    A just-released poll, conducted February 12-15 by FM3 Research for Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action has a cautionary tale for Democrats seeking to replace retiring Congressman Darrell Issa in the 49th Congressional District. The good news is the Republicans’ brand is so tarnished that a generic Democrat could win over a generic Republican by 7 points or more. The bad news is that the current line-up of Democratic candidates is likely to split primary voters in such a way that two Republicans will face each other in the general election. The FM3 poll is unique in that was conducted...

    GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, who said Wednesday he is not seeking reelection in California’s 49th District, has been discussing with colleagues the possibility of running in a neighboring San Diego district if embattled Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) resigns, multiple sources told The Hill. Some of these discussions happened as recently as Wednesday, the day Issa announced he would not be running for reelection in his coastal Southern California district after 17 years in the House. Most of Washington took that to mean Issa, the former Oversight Committee chairman and Congress’s wealthiest member, was leaving Capitol Hill for good. But in...

    California Rep. Darrell Issa will announce his retirement from Congress on Wednesday, according to sources who confirmed the news to the Washington Examiner. The OC Daily first reported the California Republican would announce his retirement from his seat later on Wednesday after serving in Congress since 2001. Issa later confirmed the news in a statement. "Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve. Yet with the support of my family, I have decided that I will not seek re-election in California's 49th District," Issa said.

    The GOP tax reform bill known as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” came one important step closer to becoming law on Tuesday when the bill passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 227 to 203. No Democrats voted for the bill, of course. The party of big, centralized government isn’t for anyone keep more of their own money, other than perhaps illegal aliens and welfare recipients, and will never vote to cut anybody’s taxes. But not all Republicans voted for the bill either. Here are the 12 Republicans — all from high tax states — who joined...

He was kind and liked people, his friends later told investigators, but none of them thought he was very sophisticated. The best way to describe him was simple, one said. He was generous and a little naïve. He was very weak, physically. A Sunni Muslim of Palestinian descent, Adass had become interested in religion and now spent many hours at the Arab University Mosque near his home. It was there, after a prayer session,...

    Republican Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) distanced himself from President Trump when confronted at a raucous town hall Saturday, telling voters that he would have preferred Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla) to be president. Issa was confronted by a Republican constituent who said he feared President Trump's agenda. “I voted for Reagan, I voted for both Bushes, and I never voted for Obama,” he explained to Issa. “However, I am afraid of President Donald Trump.” Issa wouldn't defend Trump, and instead pointed to his own support for Rubio during the 2016 Republican primary as a defense. “I was out of the district...
