    The early June meeting in the Cabinet Room was intended as a general update on President Trump’s reelection campaign, but the president had other topics on his mind. Trump had taken a cognitive screening test as part of his 2018 physical, and now, more than two years later, he brought up the 10-minute exam. He waxed on about how he’d dazzled the proctors with his stellar performance, according to two people familiar with his comments. He walked the room of about two dozen White House and reelection officials through some of the questions he said he’d aced, such as being...

    As riots take hold of major cities across the nation, Democrats have brought out the usual suspects in an effort to lay blame for the chaos and destruction. The massive protests were initially peaceful as people rallied over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck. Chauvin was later fired — along with the three other officers in the viral video of Floyd’s arrest — and he was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. But as the protests turned violent and rioters began to...
  • Minnesota Governor Blames White Supremacist Groups And Drug Cartels For Riots

    05/30/2020 3:16:04 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 152 replies ^ | Mar 30, 2020
    Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz says he suspects white supremacist groups and drug cartels are carrying out some of the violence in Minneapolis, but cannot confirm it at this time. Walz said the widespread riots across the country appear to be part of a coordinated effort by professionals. “We’re seeing evidence of some pretty sophisticated attempts to cause problems,” the governor said. Harrington said that while they have gotten reports of drug cartels “redirecting their sources to restore their drug markets” in the area amid the unrest, but that is a “secondary or tertiary concern as we’re trying to deal with...
  • CNN’s Cooper: Criticism of Thunberg Town Hall Appearance Based on ‘Made Up’ Info – Trump Jr. ‘Just Wants His Dad to Love Him’

    During CNN’s coronavirus town hall on Thursday, host Anderson Cooper reacted to the criticisms the network received for booking Greta Thunberg for its coronavirus town hall by stating they were critiques based on “made up” information and were part of “a cycle of phony outrage.” Cooper also said that one critic, Donald Trump Jr., is “attacking CNN and a 17-year-old Swede” because he “just wants his dad to love him or notice him in a way that’s not mocking him.” Cooper began by showing the initial ad for the program that CNN ran, which was later updated to include MLB...

    Former CIA Director John Brennan said he is aghast by President Donald Trump's abuse of authority and the use of the intelligence and national security communities to retain power. In an interview on Thursday with MSNBC's Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace, Brennan said the intel community is being exploited for political purposes by people who don't have the principles to lead the country and accused Trump of acting with a "despot's playbook." "I think our country is in very serious trouble," Brennan lamented. "When you have such blatant political corruption at the highest levels of the U.S. government, something I...

    Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville claimed Wednesday that Republicans were so intent on maintaining power that they would literally “kill people” in order to do so. “My kind of mission in the short-term is to sound the alarm to say [that] Mitch McConnell and the Supreme Court — they’re going to do everything they can to hold onto power,” Carville said duing an appearance on MSNBC. “This thing in Wisconsin was one of the most awful things I’ve ever seen in my life,” Carville added, referring to the controversy over whether to postpone the Badger State’s primary elections due to...

    Anyone who was looking for some assurance that politicians are giving appropriate weight to the potentially devastating economic impact of aggressive COVID-19 control measures will not find it in New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's comments at his press conference today. "We're not going to put a dollar figure on human life," said Cuomo (D), who last Friday announced that "we're all in quarantine now" while ordering all "nonessential" businesses to close. The goal, he explained, is to "save lives, period, whatever it costs." In a world of finite resources, where government agencies routinely and appropriately weigh the cost of potentially...

    BOCA RATON — John Kerry addressed a packed house Monday morning at a private event in Boca Raton, urging supporters of Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden to keep working to get the vote out right up until the last minute. “Nothing is automatic in politics,” Kerry said, reminding the crowd of his own ill-fated presidential bid 16 years ago. “This is not to be taken for granted. You have to make phone calls, sign up and do the work.” After losing the 2004 election to incumbent President George W. Bush, Kerry, then a former Massachusetts U.S. senator, went on to...

He added: “It was dark because he’s made clear that his mind is dark. This is somebody in deep psychological distress right now.

    Democratic hopeful Joe Biden slammed conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh as undeserving of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and criticized President Trump's motives for awarding it at the State of the Union on Tuesday night. Biden, speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper at a town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, said Trump's decision to award the highest civilian honor in the nation to Limbaugh was "driven more by trying to maintain [his] right-wing political credentials than it is anything else." The award was bestowed on Limbaugh just hours after he announced he is battling stage 4 lung cancer,...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., views the media in a way that will likely make conservatives' heads turn, portraying them in a new interview as "accomplices" of the president. "I do think that he was assisted by the communications industry, not just Hollywood, but the press as well, because all they do is enable him, and that is really a sad thing," she told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Wednesday. She added that she calls her friends in the press "accomplices" and seemed to push back on the idea that Trump's words should make news. "I've said to...

    A California man is due in court later today in connection with disturbing videos that appear to show him pointing guns out a hotel window. Police arrested Steven Homoki after they were tipped off about several YouTube videos that show a man holding several guns and aiming at targets in downtown San Diego. Homoki was arrested on three felony weapons charges. Formal charges will be announced this afternoon when he appears in court, reports correspondent Janet Shamlian. The videos are chilling and graphic. In them, police say a man they identify as the 30-year-old Homoki looks like he's practicing for...

    Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Adam B. Schiff late Thursday condemned the Justice Department for transforming its Russian probe review into a criminal investigation. In a joint statement, Mr. Nadler of New York and Mr. Schiff of California, both Democrats and chairmen of the Judicial Committee and Intelligence Committee respectively, said the Justice Department has become a “vehicle for President Trump’s political retribution.” “These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under AG [William P.] Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” the statement said. “If the Department of...

    Saudi Princess Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef went on a rampage against the ruling Saudi regime in her exclusive statements to the French newspaper Le Monde, saying slavery in Saudi Arabia has different forms, but it is done in secrecy and permitted only among the primary beneficiaries of the princes of the House of Saud. She mentioned one of the most repulsive things: buying and renting the children, especially the orphans, from countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania and Bulgaria. According to Aidan, the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal, who was...

    “But of course we all know that she has just announced the opening of an impeachment inquiry into the president, on the basis of evidence that he betrayed his oath of office, to uphold the Constitution and protect and defend our country,” said Hillary Clinton in a live speech at Georgetown University. “He has turned American diplomacy into a cheap extortion racket. He has denigrated – and, let’s be honest, stabbed in the back – the career foreign service officers who serve bravely and selflessly no matter the politics of the administration that they are working under,” continued Hillary Clinton.

    Monitoring Governor Palin’s pre-ascent to the national political scene was one of the stories that prompted my joining FR while in college. I remember Free Republic being one of the few places online (along with Glenn Beck’s show, to his credit) to profile the rising star governor: her successes navigating Alaska’s international corporate oil scene, her carrying a Down Syndrome baby to term, and before anybody in the media or even GOP establishment knew who she was — her qualifications as a viable for runningmate for John McCain. I stayed up all night before the day of the announcement, praying...
