    The Delaware federal judge likely to sign off on Hunter Biden’s guilty plea next month was nominated to the bench by former President Donald Trump — but was backed by the First State’s two Democratic senators and has donated to both parties.

SNIP Those donations include $5,200 to Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-Ark.) 2014 Senate campaign, $5,000 to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, $2,300 to John McCain’s presidential run in 2008, and...

    Geraldo Rivera was ridiculed on Twitter after floating Chris Christie as the best 2024 alternative to former President Donald Trump. According to Rivera, Christie, a vocal Trump critic, is an example of “swagger, moderation, and toughness.” “Chris Christie could be the strongest GOP alternative for POTUS; savvy, swagger, moderation, toughness,” the Fox News contributor tweeted. The suggestion earned some pushback, including people questioning Rivera’s sobriety over the mention of the former New Jersey governor. “Genuine question, does he know what year this is?” pundit Stephen L. Miller tweeted. “Geraldo, I don’t know how this has happened, but you appear to...

    A Pennsylvania middle school is being blasted for conspiring to conceal a student's decision to identify as non-binary from their parents while launching an LGBTQ+ club for students to join. An email exchange between several teachers and a counselor at Charles F. Patton Middle School allegedly reveals that the school was attempting to hide the student's preferred pronouns 'they/them' from their parents, Fox News reported. In one of the emails obtained by Fox News Digital, the school counselor informs the teachers that when referring to the student, ''She' is fine too, but [the student] likes 'they/them' the best.'

    Like Pompeo, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has lined up behind McCormick in the May 17 Pennsylvania primary, which recent polling has suggested is close. Cruz is looking to bounce back after his preferred candidate in the Ohio primary, Josh Mandel, lost. Cruz joined Mandel on the campaign trail in the final stretch of the race, even mocking Republican candidates for talking too much about Trump. Meanwhile, former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley appeared in a new TV ad this week for Rep. Nancy Mace, who is facing a challenge from the Trump-backed Katie Arrington in the June...

    With collapsing ratings, dwindling credibility and looming questions over its very future, the last twelve months at CNN have provided a case study in unintended consequences. Which fire should the beleaguered news network put out first? Is it even trying to save itself? Newly added to the long list of CNN President Jeff Zucker’s nightmares is a shocking ethics breach involving primetime anchor Chris Cuomo, brother of embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). After disturbing revelations that the former participated in emergency strategy sessions designed to save the latter’s sinking political career, Zucker declined to punish his line-crossing on-air talent.

    Rick Santorum's gig as a CNN contributor came to an abrupt halt on May 22. Leftists on Twitter finally found a pretext for their crusade to rid CNN of this turbulent conservative. The former senator suggested in an April 23 speech that America's founding documents didn't draw on Native American culture. The final straw was a designated apology tour of sorts on Chris Cuomo's show on May 3. Santorum explained that he didn't mean to disparage the Native Americans, but nothing was going to stop the steamroller. Shameless Cuomo interviewed his brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, multiple times and proclaimed him...

    CNN ended its contract with Rick Santorum after the former Republican senator and two-time presidential candidate made “inaccurate” and “racist” remarks about Native Americans, according to a report. A senior CNN executive told the Huffington Post Saturday that the network parted ways with Santorum, a political commentator, earlier this week, even as the former Pennsylvania senator tried to explain his comments that “there was nothing” in the US before the arrival of European colonizers on one of the network’s shows earlier this month.

Rick Santorum is saying that Native American culture never existed. Lindsey Graham says there is no systemic racism in the United States. And Newt Gingrich says that a gay pride flag is un-American. OK?”

    Remember Never Trump? For four years, an influential clique of think tankers, Republican operatives and talking heads claimed that any conservative who supported ­Donald Trump was complicit with a uniquely malevolent presidency. But if Trumpian conservatives are ­responsible for everything the 45th president was faulted for, then Never Trump should likewise own the evils of the new Biden administration. Never Trumpers spoke of the Trump GOP almost as if it were Saddam Hussein’s Ba’ath Party, a dictator’s discredited political organ, badly in need of a purge. “President Donald Trump leaves office with a crimson-stained legacy,” thundered Peter Wehner, vice president...

Many of the conservative women who once saw him as a boor have come to believe that for too long they were focused on the wrong qualities in presidential candidates. They wanted someone pious when they should have been looking for someone who could throw punches. “I endorsed Rick Santorum in 2012. And Mike Huckabee,” said Penny Young Nance, who signed the statement in 2016 of anti-abortion activists opposing Mr. Trump. “But at the end of the day, I’m not sure those guys...

    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) on Sunday said he believes the Democratic Party could win in 2020 if they pick someone "unexpected" as their party's presidential nominee. Santorum, asked if there were any potential Democratic candidates he was afraid of, pointed to previous presidential contests, saying all of the Democratic candidates who won were "not the favorite" at the time. "When the Democrats win, they pick someone unexpected or someone who’s not the favorite," Santorum, a CNN analyst, said on CNN's "State of the Union." "[Former Presidents] Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter," he listed. "When they pick [failed...

    Many of us have hidden fears and hesitations when it comes to dealing with persons with severe disabilities. Their unfamiliar gestures, behaviors, and limitations can challenge us and infringe on our comfort zones. We may be tempted to apply a different standard when we deal with them. Even very young children with disabilities may suffer discrimination through denial of care as newborns, or through abortion in utero. During his presidential campaign, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and his wife Karen were often asked by people on the campaign trail about their daughter Bella, who was born with Trisomy 18, a...
