    Former President Donald Trump is directly calling for the imprisonment of nine of his political opponents — including former Congresswoman Liz Cheney. In a post on his Truth Social platform Sunday, Trump shared an article from far-right writer John Solomon which alleged that the Jan. 6 committee “withheld crucial evidence” in its probe by not releasing the testimony of a Secret Service agent who drove Trump’s limo on Jan. 6. The driver notably disputed the account of former White House staffer Cassidy Hutchinson — who claimed Trump tried to grab the steering wheel of the limo in an effort to...
  • Dem Senate Contender Wants $50 Minimum Wage

    When arguing against a given minimum wage (e.g., $15/hour), late radio giant Rush Limbaugh would sometimes rhetorically ask: Why stop there? If that amount is good, wouldn’t a $50 minimum wage be even better? It’s unknown whether Limbaugh would’ve even suspected that a statist would make his “illustrating absurdity by being absurd” example a serious proposal within 10 years, but here we are: Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’s running for the Golden State’s open Senate seat, made this very proposal in a Monday night debate with her rivals. “Just do the math!” she exclaimed, alluding to the supposed self-evident legitimacy...
  • Trump Claims Stock Market Is Booming Because People Think He’ll Win in 2024 When Questioned By Maria Bartiromo

    Former President Donald Trump claimed that the stock market is booming under President Joe Biden because investors believe he will return to the White House. The Republican frontrunner joined Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo for an interview set to air on Sunday, where he discussed his economic policy and the current state of the economy under Biden. Recently, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index hit record heights under Biden. Trump tried taking credit for those numbers, claiming in his interview with Bartiromo that investors believe he is going to be the Republican nominee and beat Biden...

    My parents were just Swatted,” Jack Posobiec said in a post on X on Saturday afternoon. “Everyone is fine.” “Law enforcement are fully involved and tracking down the perpetrator,” Posobiec said. "They told police that I had shot my parents and was threatening to shoot my family,” Posobiec said. As The Post Millennial noted, Mediaite published a hit piece on Posobiec and Tim Pool before the swatting incident. Mediaite reported: “Posobiec is unknown to 72% of Americans and even less popular to Republicans, 75% of whom don’t know who he is. The same is true of Pool; 69% of Americans...

    Conservative commentator Megyn Kelly declared that former President Donald Trump has lost “multiple steps” mentally during a recent appearance on Glenn Beck‘s show, rejecting his excuses for recent misstatements. “Do you think that Donald Trump has faded from where he was in 2020?” asked Beck. “Yeah, I do,” replied Kelly. “I mean, I’d take him over Joe Biden any day of the week. I don’t think he’s going to, you know, fill out this term, never mind a second. But there’s no question Trump has lost a step- or multiple steps.” She continued:

    In December 2016, Musk had a private meeting with Trump, during which he was “baffled” by the then-president-elect’s comments about Tesla and NASA. “He seems kind of nuts,” Musk said after the meeting, according to Isaacson, “but he may turn out okay.” On the contrary: Musk “concluded that Trump as president was no different than he was as a candidate,” Isaacson wrote. “The buffoonery was not just an act.” “Trump might be one of the best bullshitters ever,” Musk told Isaacson. “If you just think of Trump as a sort of con-man performance, then his behavior sort of makes sense.”...

    A new poll released on Saturday shows that 62 percent of Americans think former President Trump "committed a crime." Trump made history this past Thursday by becoming the first former President of the United States to have his mugshot taken, not to mention also being the subject of four separate indictments with a total of 91 separate charges. The poll is what many people consider a damning case against Trump. More than three in five Americans believe that Donald Trump has committed a crime (net +32; 62 percent committed a crime – 30 percent did not commit a crime), including...
  • Whopping 64% of Americans Say They ‘Definitely’ Or ‘Probably’ Would NOT Support Trump For President in 2024: AP Poll

    A new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll out Wednesday found that former President Donald Trump is increasing his grip on the Republican Party but still distancing a majority of the American electorate. The poll found that 63% of Republican voters “now say they want the former president to run again,” noted an AP summary. The strong support from inside the GOP marked an increase from the same poll last April, which showed 55% of Republican voters wanted to see Trump on the party’s ticket again. “Seven in 10 Republicans now have a favorable opinion of Trump, an...

    On this week’s episodes of Wallace’s Max/CNN series Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, Wallace interviewed McDaniel, as well as Hollywood superstar Goldie Hawn. In one of many memorable exchanges, Wallace asked McDaniel if she has a problem with the GOP “nominating somebody who’s under federal indictment” (she expressed openness to that) and then asked the natural follow-up for a race in which ex-President Donald Trump is the frontrunner — “Do you have any problem with the Republican Party nominating a convicted felon?”:

    <p>How did former President Donald Trump celebrate Independence Day? Well, he lit off some fireworks, but not the literal kind, more like that aggro and angry political potshots he’s known for by sharing a late-night meme that read “F*ck Biden” on social media in the wee hours of July 4th.</p>

    By the way, Bill, it’s the job of defense counsel to “jerk around” the government when there’s a dispute. You don’t roll over if you believe you’re in the right. Moreover, read the Durham report. You appointed the guy. DOJ is corrupt especially in its treatment of Trump. As for the Espionage Act, I challenge you to show me anywhere that it was intended to be used in this way. It wasn’t used against LBJ, Hillary, Biden, etc. There should have been no grand jury. No warrant. No swat team. No criminal obstruction. No violations of privilege. None of the...

    So…this is an unusual question one might ask about a presidential candidate, but nevertheless, it happened. Washington Post reporter Ben Terris spoke with Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) while he was in the process of writing his soon-to-be released book The Big Break: The Gamblers, Party Animals, and True Believers Trying to Win in Washington While America Loses Its Mind. The book is described on Amazon as a profile Washington power players who have tried to navigate the raucousness and political upheaval DC has seen in the last several years. Scott is now prepared to enter the 2024 Republican primary, and...

    Breitbart, once called the platform of the “alt-right” by Steve Bannon, shredded former President Donald Trump on Friday for dining with far-right white nationalist and Neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes. News broke on Wednesday night that Trump dined with Fuentes and rapper Kanye West, both avowed anti-Semites, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday – a dinner Trump has since both acknowledged and tried to distance himself from. Axios’s Jonathan Swan reported that during the dinner Trump and Fuentes “fawned” over each other. Swan wrote that at one point during the conversation Trump asked Fuentes, “‘You like it better when I just speak off...

Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck detailed what transpired in a three-part tweet that also included clips of the incident. “WATCH: KJP did NOT like it when @DailyCaller‘s @DianaGlebova shouted out a question to Fauci about the origins of COVID and the @NYPost‘s @StevenNelson10 came to her defense.” “PART 2 — KJP scolds @DailyCaller‘s @DianaGlebova for again trying to ask Fauci about the origins of COVID: “We have a process here.

    President Joe Biden reportedly lost his temper after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked for more U.S. assistance just days after $1 billion in aid was approved. NBC News, citing four sources familiar with the situation, reported on Monday that during the June 15 phone call, “Biden had barely finished telling Zelenskyy he’d just greenlighted another $1 billion in U.S. military assistance for Ukraine in its fight against Russia’s invasion, which started on Feb. 24, when Zelenskyy started listing all the additional help he needed and wasn’t getting. Biden lost his temper.” Biden remarked that Zelensky should be more appreciative of...

    Paging CNN president Chris Licht. Do you remember the request you made last June that your personnel not use the highly partisan term "The Big Lie" to describe skepticism about the conduct of the 2020 election? Well, perhaps you need to emphasize that request again to the Sunday host of CNN's Inside Politics, Abby Phillip, who repeated that phrase you frowned upon not once but twice in just a little over a minute and a half. The total number of times "The Big Lie" was invoked on Sunday was actually three since the Washington Post White House Bureau Chief also...
  • Former Fox News Host Chris Wallace Having ‘Daily Breakdowns’ After Joining CNN

    Chris Wallace is learning a harsh lesson after he abruptly left Fox News after 18 years to join the left-wing outlet at CNN. Wallace was lured onto CNN’s new online streaming service called CNN+ but it’s drawing fewer than 10,000 daily viewers. Wallace is quickly learning that no one is watching him anymore. Sources say Wallace is suffering “daily breakdowns,” and asking his staffers “to count how many times a day his promo is playing.” Without stronger marketing, it appears very few people are tuning in. Jon Nicosia, president of News Cycle Media and former managing editor of Mediaite, says...
