  • Trump calls Robin Vos 'a horrendous RINO' in new robocall supporting Adam Steen (write-in)

    ROCHESTER — Former President Donald Trump has re-upped his endorsement of conservative write-in state legislative candidate Adam Steen in the final week before Election Day. In a new prerecorded robocall, Trump again attacks incumbent Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, calling Vos “a horrendous RINO,” shorthand for Republican In Name Only. The former president tells voters to write-in Steen and calls Vos “an absolute disaster … Vos has really let you down on voter integrity and just about everything else.”

    Letting the world know that the Democrats fear him more than Donald Trump at the top of the 2024 presidential ticket. It would be hard to find a person who better represents the liberal media establishment than Thomas B. Edsall, whose career includes the Washington Post, New York Times and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. In his latest column for the Times, he attempts to slam Ron DeSantis, letting the world know that the Democrats fear him more than Donald Trump at the top of the 2024 presidential ticket. But in the process of doing so, far from...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday agreed to allow a short-term debt ceiling extension. The debt limit will be increased into December. “The unified Democratic government had two and a half months to address the debt limit through reconciliation. Instead, they drifted to the doorstep of yet another self-created crisis,” McConnell said in a statement on Wednesday. “To protect the American people from a near-term Democrat-created crisis, we will also allow Democrats to use normal procedures to pass an emergency debt limit extension at a fixed dollar amount to cover current spending levels into December. This will moot Democrats’...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will announce later Tuesday that she supports a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, a Democratic lawmaker close to her confirmed to The Hill. The move comes amid mounting pressure from House Democrats to take a stand against Trump’s alleged political pressure on Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, during a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. That call has come under increasing scrutiny over the past several days following the revelation that a whistleblower raised concerns about the discussion between the two leaders. Pelosi is expected to make...

    Lindsey Graham calls for DOJ probe of Biden-Ukraine connection: 'There is enough smoke here' Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Sunday called for a Justice Department investigation of the Biden-Ukraine connection. The South Carolina Republican said the investigation into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s dealings in Ukraine should be as far-reaching and aggressive as the Russia probe that targeted President Trump’s 2016 campaign. “Joe Biden said everybody’s looked at this and found nothing. Who is everybody? Nobody has looked at the Ukraine and the Bidens,” Mr. Graham said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “There is enough smoke...

    Amid calls from Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, for the White House to release a transcript of a call between President Donald Trump and the president of Ukraine, Trump told reporters he talked about both Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, because of "all of the corruption taking place." On a July 25 call with President Vladimir Zelensky, Trump asked the Ukraine leader to investigate Hunter eight times, multiple news outlets reported Friday, citing intelligence sources. Now, Trump says he hopes "they release" the call. Before leaving the White House for an event with India's prime minister in...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, said Thursday that she would re-enter the Iran nuclear deal and end sanctions in response to Iran's involvement in drone attack against Saudi Arabia oil facilities if she was president. "What I would do is, I would re-enter the Iran nuclear deal to prevent Iran from continuing to move forward in building a nuclear weapon that puts us and the world further at risk," Gabbard said on "The Story with Martha MacCallum." " And number two... end those crippling sanctions. Every day that we don't do this, every day we continue down this...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says firearm confiscation laws portend a way that Democrats and Republicans can “come together.” CNN reported that Graham has long supported red flag laws, which allow a court to issue firearm confiscation orders for individuals deemed a threat to themselves or others. House Democrats have already passed legislation during this Congress to criminalize private gun sales and extend the instant background check for firearm purchases. They are now pressing for $50 million in annual funding to bring academia into the gun control push. The Democrats have also been vocal in their support for...

    A new survey of likely voters might at least raise momentary dyspepsia for Democrats since it suggests why it wouldn't be a cakewalk. The survey by Washington-based Mercury Analytics is a combination online questionnaire and "dial-test" of Trump's first big campaign ad among 916 self-proclaimed "likely voters" (this video shows the ad and the dial test results). It took place primarily Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. Nearly 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they'd cross sides and vote for Trump, while a small number, or 14 percent, of Republicans...

    Pro-life leaders are used to being accused of hate speech by Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, and campus feminist activists. But they were surprised to hear Dr. Ben Carson seem to agree that they spewed "hateful" and "immature" rhetoric on Sunday. When CBS moderator John Dickerson asked Dr. Carson whether Planned Parenthood was right that pro-life rhetoric had led to Friday's shooting inside a Colorado Springs abortion facility, the doctor readily agreed. There is "no question the hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation," Carson said on "Face the Nation." Pro-life advocates quickly rebuffed the notion that they had pushed 57-year-old Robert Lewis...

    So this is the world we live in now. Asked by the Huffington Post whether he would go back in time and kill baby Hitler, Jeb Bush said, "Hell yeah, I would! You gotta step up, man." But do you? Should you? Given certain assumptions, killing baby Hitler isn't a hard question. Assume that going back in time merely eliminates Hitler, and that the sole effect of that is that the Nazi Party lacks a charismatic leader and never takes power in Germany, and World War II and the Holocaust are averted, and nothing worse than World War II transpires...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) wrote Secretary of State John Kerry today to remind him that “American citizens remain unjustly imprisoned by the Iranian regime even as you have finalized a nuclear deal with Iran,” and urging him “to use every tool at your disposal to secure their freedom” unconditionally. “It is unacceptable that the United States has reached a final agreement with Iran while innocent Americans languish in the most brutal conditions of Iranian jail cells. I am profoundly disappointed that the agreement with Iran did not ensure the unconditional release of American citizens: Jason Rezaian, Pastor Saeed Abedini and...

    The first air-defense missiles from Russia have begun rolling into Syria, according to the the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. Speaking on a TV station owned by Hezbollah in Lebanon, Assad said that Russia will honor its promises to Syria, and had in fact already started to do so (via Rovin): The Syrian president has told Lebanon’s Hizbollah-owned TV station that Damascus received the first shipment of S300 Russian air defence missiles. Al-Manar said in a statement that when asked about the promised delivery of the S-300 surface-to-air missiles, Assad replied: “All the agreements with Russia will be honoured and some...

    Despite Thursday’s controversial Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare, states retain the right and authority to nullify the healthcare law, and the state of Missouri, among many others, is undertaking efforts to do just that. According to Missouri legislators, regardless of the High Court's ruling, Missouri voters will maintain the opportunity to vote for or against the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act in November. And Missouri is not the only state seeking to circumvent ObamaCare. Yahoo News reports, “Several Republican governors, including both Jindal and McDonnell, have put off setting up the exchanges in the hope that the law will be repealed...
