    A number of prominent Republicans have spoken out in opposition to the plan, spearheaded by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), to object to Joe Biden electors from the 2020 battleground states being contested by President Donald Trump. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was first to announce he would object to Biden electors in Pennsylvania. Cruz and 11 other Republican senators followed suit, announcing they would object to electors in every battleground. The senators are not claiming, like Trump, that the election was rigged, but simply that there are enough allegations of fraud from the losing candidate to justify objecting to the results....

    Newsmax TV anchor John Bachman finally declared that President-elect Joe Biden is, in fact, the president-elect, marking a massive step for the ardently pro-Trump network on their path to facing the reality that President Donald Trump lost his 2020 re-election bid.

    What a difference a week makes. Last week Mediaite founder and ABC's Chief Legal Affairs Anchor Dan Abrams exuded confidence that President Donald Trump had no path for reversing the election outcome proclaimed by much of the media, namely that Joe Biden had won. In fact, as you can see in the video below of his appearance last week on Good Morning America, Abrams actually seemed amused over the chances of the legal challenges in the various states in question. However, fast forward a week and Abrams is now very very worried that Trump could "steal this election" which means...

    The Intercept co-founder Glenn Greenwald called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) “the most pathological liar in all American politics” during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight. Discussing the Hunter Biden laptop controversy, which Schiff has claimed without evidence is part of a Russian disinformation campaign, Carlson said, “I’ve seen a fair bit of the material on this laptop and the response by the media and particularly by the so-called intel community strikes me as much more threatening to America than anything on this laptop.” Greenwald responded, “I couldn’t agree more, Tucker,” before adding, “First of all, Adam Schiff...
  • ‘The Most Flawed Person I Have Ever Met’: Trump’s Former Chief of Staff John Kelly Reportedly UNLOADED on President in Private

    A new report from CNN says former White House chief of staff John Kelly has unloaded on his former boss in very stark terms in private. Since leaving the Trump administration, Kelly has made a few public comments criticizing President Donald Trump and his conduct in office, though he’s been more muted than others who have spoken out about their time working for Trump. Jake Tapper reported Friday on a quote from Kelly about the president that he has apparently told people close to him: “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature...
  • Congressional Candidate’s Violent Message Resurfaces: When GOP ‘Extremists Go Low, We Stomp Their Scrawny Necks’

    Democratic congressional in North Carolina recently called on his audience to “stomp” on the necks of Republican “extremists,” according to Twitter messages that resurfaced during a debate between candidates for the seat. “Screw they go low, we go high bullsh*t,” said the September 11, 2019 tweet by Moe Davis. “When @NCGOP extremists go low, we stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure. He needs to know who whupped his ass.” Davis, a retired Air...

    Some people might burn a little sage to clear out bad vibes. Southampton restaurant owner Zach Erdem busts out a sledgehammer, axe, and giant bottle of lighter fluid. Erdem, the owner of 75 Main in Southampton, New York, was troubled by the lingering “bad energy” at a VIP table at his establishment that had been frequented by not one, but two, famous convicted creeps: Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein. The table, a high-top designed to seat six, was such a favorite dining spot for Epstein that he once paid another party’s $1,500 bill just to get them to clear out....

    A Reuters photograph of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s vast briefing binder offered a peek behind the curtain of the Trump administration’s messaging priorities. Taken from the side of the White House briefing room podium, the photograph catches McEnany opening the book, exposing dozens of alphabetized tabs with short category names. During her tenure, McEnany has developed a reputation for flipping open her briefing book after a particularly confrontational question and reading verbatim from pre-written responses, which often included canned attacks on the press or praise from allies. In the photo taken at Thursday’s White House briefing, McEnany’s tabs...

    CNN’s Van Jones was not impressed by Donald Trump’s latest speech from the White House, but he did give the president credit for the substance of his executive order on police reform. Jones joined his colleagues on Tuesday to discuss Trump’s address, which was laden with several of the president’s usual talking points and attacks against his political enemies. For the most part, Jones pushed Trump’s remarks to the side and called the order a positive development for future reforms. “There is movement in the direction of a database for bad cops. We have never had a federal database for...

    New York Times opinion writer Bari Weiss got buried by her colleagues for live-tweeting her own take on the newsroom’s work dynamic on Thursday afternoon. After the Times published a highly controversial op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) entitled “Send in the Military”, Weiss claimed the newsroom has turned into a “civil war” between the “new guard” and the “old guard.”

    There were two valuable lessons I learned in the process of “outing” Helen Thomas as a hater ten years ago today. The first was the importance of making sure what a post is accurate because it can ruin someone’s career (what I posted was correct, and it ruined Ms. Thomas’ career). The other lesson is that mainstream media will do and say anything to protect one of their own. They protected her ten years ago, and many of them are still protecting her. Lid took down Helen Thomas. My “association” with Helen Thomas began Friday, June 4th, 2010, when a...

    How does Watergate differ from Obamagate? Journalists led the charge to uncover the first. But now? Now journalists are leading the coverup of the second. J. Peder Zane has illustrated the media coverup exactly: “This week’s news that at least 39 Obama officials had unmasked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s private conversations during the last month of their administration seemed a little shocking. Today, major media outlets are telling readers and viewers that the practice is “routine.” A CNN headline told readers, “Trump pushes 'Obamagate' conspiracy based on routine intel activity.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN...
  • Trump at Coronavirus Briefing Attacks Schiff, Cuomo, Biden, Whistleblower: ‘Someone Oughta Sue His Ass Off’ (someone's opinion)

    President Donald Trump fired off a laundry list of grievances at his daily White House press conference with the coronavirus task force Saturday, bashing Rep. Adam Schiff, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the Ukraine whistleblower. The wild diatribe was kicked off by a reporter asking Trump about his firing of Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who told Congress about the whistleblower complaint regarding Trump’s phone call with Ukraine, ultimately leading to his impeachment. “I thought he did a terrible job,” Trump said. “Absolutely terrible.” Trump proceeded to falsely claim the Ukraine whistleblower...

    If decent people working in mainstream American media want to know why many Americans do not trust them and are willing to use the term "fake news" to describe the mainstream media, I offer one of the most glaring examples of a lie in my lifetime. Last week, Newsweek headlined the following: "Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank: 'I Don't Get My Wisdom From Teenagers.'" Now, imagine how that must have struck any reader not familiar with the "conservative radio host" or with what he actually said. "Ridicule Anne Frank" -- what kind of terrible human being would do that?...
  • Napolitano: Trump’s Behavior is ‘Criminal and Impeachable’

    Napolitano: Trump’s Behavior is ‘Criminal and Impeachable’ — And His ‘Allusions to Violence are Palpably Dangerous’ Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano argued in a column and video published on Thursday morning that President Donald Trump’s “criminal behavior” with regard to Ukraine is impeachable, and that his threats against the whistleblower are dangerous. The column opens by noting that “the criminal behavior to which Trump has admitted is much more grave than anything alleged or unearthed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and much of what Mueller revealed was impeachable,” before outlining the specifics of the Ukraine scandal currently...

    Former Congresswoman Donna Edwards told Chris Matthews tonight that President Donald Trump is engaging in rhetoric from “the Nazi playbook,” after he said Trump’s rhetoric is “Hitlerian.” Matthews showed the clip of Fox News’ Chris Wallace telling Mick Mulvaney that the use of words like “infested” “sounds like vermin” and “sub-human.” He said the use of such rhetoric aimed at Congress members of color shows a pattern. After praising Wallace, Matthews said, “‘Infested.’ It’s ‘vermin.’ It’s a Hitlerian term… He’s obsessed with this thing about cities.”

    Former Republican congressman-turned-radio host Joe Walsh (R-IL) went off on Donald Trump and the racist invectives the president used to attack his enemies throughout the week. Shortly after Trump claimed he was “not happy” with his Wednesday night rallygoers who chanted “send her back” as he blasted Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, Walsh offered his reaction to CNN’s Briana Keilar. He started by saying Republicans should’ve condemned Trump en masse for his recent attacks on Omar and her progressive colleagues, but they haven’t because “they don’t gave a damn what he does” and don’t care about how much he lies.
