    This is really a stunning report. House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy used FTX funding to sway GOP primaries away from Trump supporters. The National File originally reported on this on Friday.

Which Destroyed the so-called “Red Wave.” pic.twitter.com/TDwJpKbRd4 Of course, it is widely know that the now bankrupt FTX US funded millions into Democrat campaigns through Ukraine. But at least one FTX player funded hundreds of thousands of dollars to Kevin McCarthy to take out MAGA lawmakers. Most of the rest of the money, $700,000, came from Ryan Salame,...

"Well, I actually think that's a bad strategy," she said on Monday. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday expressed support for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's bid for House speaker as rumors swirl about the Republican conference's hard-line conservative wing mounting a challenge against him. "Well, I actually think that's a bad strategy when we're looking at having a very, razor-thin majority, with potentially 219. We're talking about one vote," Greene said on Steve Bannon's...

    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that former President Donald Trump needed to be prosecuted for not trying to stop the violence during the January 6 riot on the U.S. Capitol. McCaskill said, “We can go through, and we can put the images at a specific time. And we can then fill in the text messages, the phone calls that were flooding the White House saying, get him to call them off. Now, what was he watching on TV at those moments? He was watching windows being broken. He was watching police officers being stabbed with...

    Adam Bernstein was one of the directors working on the first season of NBC’s Tina Fey-created critical darling “30 Rock.” While filming a scene during the show’s first season, he held up his thumbs to frame a shot. For reasons unknown, this angered Alec Baldwin, who starred in the show as the hilarious Jack Donaghy, Vice President of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming for General Electric. “According to [editor Doug] Abel, Alec turned to [Bernstein] and said that if he did that one more time, he was going to assault him. And he didn’t say it with a...

    These royal jackasses are doing everything they can to undermine Trump while drawing the same breath talk about unity and how they're behind the nominee. They are completely scared of the media and the Democrats. Did any Democrat call on Hillary to apologize to the Benghazi victims? Did they call on her to step down from the race after the email scandal? No, they embraced her and doubled-down. This pathetic game has literally been going on for decades. Republican makes a comment perceived as being outrageous by the media gate-keepers, Dems call on "Top Republicans" to denounce the Republican in...

    Some U.S. intelligence officials are worried about providing a routine intelligence briefing to Donald Trump once he becomes the official Republican presidential nominee, according to a report. Eight senior security officials told Reuters they were concerned that Trump's "shoot from the hip" style could pose national security risks, as they prepare to give him a routine pre-election briefing for presidential nominees. They also cited his lack of foreign policy experience, and his little known team of foreign policy advisers. "People are very nervous," one senior U.S. security official said. However, the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss a political domestic...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday warned that Donald Trump is a “loose cannon” and said the United States should not take a risk on an unreliable candidate, according to Reuters. "He is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire," she said in an interview with CNN, citing Trump stances including a claim that climate change was a Chinese hoax. The comments came as Trump appears to be the Republican presidential nominee, especially after his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich both stepped down following Trump’s victory in the Indiana primary. Clinton said in the interview that...

    Carly Fiorina wants you to look at her face. The superPAC supporting her campaign released a new video, "Faces," hitting back at Donald Trump's recent comments on her appearance..."Ladies, look at this face, and look at all of your faces — the face of leadership," Fiorina opens the video. The video cuts together Fiorina's speech to the Federation of Republican Women in Arizona on Friday with the faces of several women. Fiorina goes on to describe the Republican Party as the "party of women's suffrage" and says the Democratic Party should take note that women "are not a special interest...

    AUSTIN, TX -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday condemned inflammatory remarks by Ted Nugent that resurfaced when the outspoken rocker this week joined Republican Greg Abbott's gubernatorial campaign. Nugent was quoted in an interview with Guns.com last month as calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel." He appeared with Abbott during two campaign stops Tuesday, a decision that Democratic opponent Wendy Davis called "repulsive." Perry said on CNN's "Situation Room" that Nugent making outrageous comments shouldn't surprise anyone. But he condemned his language about Obama. "I got a problem calling the president a mongrel. I do have a problem...

    Akin said he has no plans to withdraw.“I don’t know that I’m the only person in public office who’s suffered from foot-in-mouth disease here, and this was a very, very serious error. On the other hand, there are so many good people in Missouri who nominated me, and they understood my heart,” Akin said.... Akin said no Republicans have called him and asked him to withdraw from the race.“No one has called me and said, ‘Todd, I think you should drop out,’” Akin said. “No one has said that. But I gather people are saying that in the media, but they didn’t specifically call...

"He's being absurd, but that's you know, an entertainer can be absurd," Santorum told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday. "He's in a very different business than I am."

    That was fast: As part of its seemingly ever-evolving media strategy, Herman Cain’s campaign appears to have pulled the plug on blaming Rick Perry for the swirl of accusations surrounding the candidate. “We want to move on with the campaign. Let’s get over these things that don’t mean anything to the American public,” Mark Block, Cain's campaign manager, told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Thursday afternoon. But that’s not about to become any easier. Politico reported Thursday that one of the women who accused Cain of sexual harassment during his time at the National Restaurant Assn. received a payout of...

    Tim Pawlenty is exiting the race for the White House the same way he came in — on a tidal wave of conventional wisdom. He was too even-tempered, they say, to catch on with a white-hot electorate. He was too level-headed, they say, to connect with a grassroots that’s gone to extremes. He was a nice guy — “boring,” in the parlance of our times — so he finished last. Breaking news: The conventional wisdom is wrong. Pawlenty’s personality problem wasn’t a charisma deficit — it was a wimpiness surplus. But the wimp factor is meaningless relative to the flaw...

    On the same day that House Speaker John Boehner told Republicans to "Get your asses in line" and support his debt ceiling proposal, Sen. John McCain also blasted fellow Republicans. In a Senate floor speech laced with sarcasm and stings, the Arizona Republican aimed especially harsh fire at the tea party Wednesday. McCain said the movement is "foolish" to think a balanced budget amendment could pass before the August 2 deadline. At one point, McCain read from an op-ed in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal. That article referred to activists as "tea party hobbits" – the little people who inhabit Middle-earth...

    So the debt limit debate has come to this: John McCain, who you may recall was the GOP’s 2008 standard bearer, is now openly accusing conservatives of actively misleading America with their completely unrealistic demands, which he labeled “deceiving” and “bizarro.” In a seminal moment in this debate, here’s some video of McCain on the Senate floor today, unleashing an angry tirade at conservatives who are still holding out for a balanced budget amendment as part of any compromise on the debt ceiling. McCain accused them of “deceiving” America into believing such a thing can pass the Senate:

    It could be said that Newt Gingrich's campaign "problems" of late have put the White House beyond the former speaker of the House's reach. The most recent issue was the defection of Newt's campaign staffers, who believed there was a strategy difference between themselves and Gingrich on how to move forward. But not so fast. The departure of Gingrich's staffers is nothing more or less than a breath of fresh air -- after all, it is Newt himself, and not his campaign advisers, who is running for president. The fact is that Newt Gingrich has a vision on how to...
