    US Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) made another clumsy television appearance today. On "Fox News Sunday," Duckworth struggled to speak grammatical English and made several more bizarre statements. Duckworth continues to insist that Russia is paying bounties to members of the Taliban to kill US troops in Afghanistan despite the fact that numerous US intelligence agencies have dismissed the claims as being uncorroborated. Duckworth also alleged that the Department of Homeland Security is kidnapping ("mostly peaceful") protesters off the streets of Portland, Oregon where the US Court House is under attack. Duckworth doubled down on stupid by stating that universal background...
  • Retired general says DHS secretary needs 'to be run out of' DC for 'b------t' tactics in Portland

    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf should leave his job after his department deployed lawless mobs to contain protests in Portland, Ore., retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore said. “Police don’t do this. Watch this, what kind of b----t is this?!” Honore told MSNBC on Tuesday. He was responding to footage of federal agents assailing a man in the street. He added that Wolf needs "to be run out of Washington. He has no business in charge of Homeland Security." His comments came amid a vigorous debate surrounding how authorities should deal with protests in the wake of George Floyd's...
  • Gov. Cuomo Refuses To Accept Help From Gun Manufacturer Who Wants To Help With Medical Supplies

    You would think that in times of emergency, political leaders would put their ideology aside and accept help from whomever offered it. But that doesn’t appear to be the case regarding Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. His state has become the coronavirus epicenter in the United States and he, like other elected leaders in New York, has been pleading for medical supplies — especially ‘PPE’ (personal protective equipment) and ventilators for the critically ill. Well, one company idled by Cuomo’s coronavirus executive order to shut down because it isn’t considered “essential” has offered to make these items for...
  • Denver Sticking To Sanctuary Policy Following Arrest Of Hit-And-Run Suspect Who Was Already Deported Six Times

    Denver officials do not plan on fully cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) if they release an illegal alien who was deported six times before getting arrested for fleeing the scene of a deadly hit-and-run accident. Juan Sanchez, a Mexican national living in the U.S. illegally, is accused of striking a pedestrian in the Denver area with a vehicle and immediately fleeing the scene. If Sanchez — who lives in a state that largely limits cooperation with ICE — is able to make bond, his release back into the community could pose another showdown between local officials and federal immigration authorities....
  • Fox Stands Behind Jussie Smollett in Wake of Staged Assault Report

    20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment have voiced their support for “Empire” star Jussie Smollett after it was reported the actor and musician staged an attack on himself in Chicago. Chicago media had previously reported that Smollett staged the attack because he was being written off of the Fox series. However the Chicago P.D. said the reports of a hoax are still unconfirmed. “The idea that Jussie Smollett has been, or would be, written off of ‘Empire’ is patently ridiculous,” the network and studio said in a joint statement. “He remains a core player on this very successful series...

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler plans to bring a new policing pilot program before City Council for final approval on Wednesday, Dec. 5. The Public Safety Support Specialists, or PS3s, will be non-sworn officers who do not carry guns. "They will be engaged in the community in non-emergency calls, so that's things like property crimes, break-ins," Wheeler tells WW. The PS3s grew out of a proposal in the 2016 police union contract approved under then-Mayor Charlie Hales to create Community Service Officers who would respond to minor property crimes and nuisance calls, among other things. To fund the program, Wheeler cut the Mounted...

  • Woman’s Mugshot Goes Viral, Leads To Requests For Makeup Advice

    DALLAS, Texas (CBS Local) – A Texas teen’s mugshot has unexpectedly launched her career as a makeup artist. Marshala Perkins of Dallas was arrested in February and charged with possession of marijuana. The 19-year-old was reportedly questioned by police after finishing a makeup tutorial. The teen told reporters she was sitting in her car waiting for friends when officers found two grams of marijuana in the vehicle. After the incident, Greenville police posted the mugshot on their Facebook page, leaving Perkins embarrassed over the arrest. What the teen didn’t expect was her mugshot to get re-posted by a Twitter account...

    A likely Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate in Tennessee was facing some unwanted attention this week in response to the harsh and often profane social-media rhetoric of a top party communications aide. Former Gov. Phil Bredesen has advanced a platform during his senatorial bid that includes reaching across party lines to work with Republicans, the Washington Free Beacon reported. But the divisive language used by Tennessee Democratic Party official Mark Brown, who is working with the party to advance Bredesen’s campaign, appears at odds with that spirit of bipartisanship.

    Twenty-seven conservative leaders signed a statement in support of Lee, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, Conservative Partnership Institute Chairman Jim DeMint, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon. “Sen. Lee has a proven record of standing up for principle, for doing the right thing for the right reasons, even in the face of withering criticism,” the letter states. “And that’s what this nominee is in for.” The statement warns the confirmation battle to replace Kennedy is likely to be the “roughest fight Washington has seen in decades,” and notes that a Supreme Court with a conservative majority will...

    (Barf Alert) --- (snip) -- The author and political scientist offers a traditionally timid party some bold ideas. Democrats are despondent right now. Already in control of the White House and Congress, Republicans are poised to solidify their majority on the Supreme Court, and the Dems are powerless to prevent it. What can they do? David Faris has many suggestions, but they boil down to an attitude: No more Mr. Nice Donkey. Faris argues Democrats have been too passive and accepting of the fundamental unfairness of the American political system. He points to the undemocratic nature of the United States...
  • Poll: Support for legal marijuana hits all-time high

    The Hill ^ | 04/26/18 | Max Greenwood
    Nearly two-thirds of U.S. voters back legalizing marijuana, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday. Support for legalization hit 63 percent in the survey — the highest level of support recorded by a Quinnipiac poll. A third of American voters still oppose legalization, the poll found. Support for medical marijuana is even higher, at 93 percent. Only about 5 percent of respondents opposed it. The poll also found little support for Attorney General Jeff Sessions's decision earlier this year to rescind an Obama-era policy that paved the way for individual states to legalize marijuana without federal interference. Seventy percent...

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower-court decision that would have struck down a 10-day waiting period for certain firearm purchases. The lower-court decision would have allowed existing gun owners and people with concealed-weapons permits to immediately take possession of a lawfully purchased firearm. [Snip] 9th Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder ... said someone who already owns a hunting rifle may want to buy a larger-capacity weapon that will do more damage when fired into a crowd. "A 10-day cooling-off period would serve to discourage such conduct and would impose no serious burden on the core...

  • WE MUST FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE - infiltrate Democrat rallies

    03/12/2016 8:56:37 AM PST · by Treeless Branch · 104 replies
    We must fight fire with fire. We must infiltrate Bernie and Hilary's rallies. We must have groups of people who interlock arms and sit in the middle of their rallies. We need to yell accurate statements like Rapist Enabler, Felon and Commie. We need to make them forcibly remove us. It's the best way to fight back and to take control of the dialogue. Also Trump needs to stop calling these people protesters. They are not protesters. They are infiltrators and disrupters.

    “There’s this desire, verging on panic, to consolidate the field,” said Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a former supporter of Mr. Bush. “But I don’t see any movement at all.” Mr. Rubio’s advisers were also thwarted in their efforts to secure an endorsement from Mr. Romney, whom they lobbied strenuously after the Feb. 20 South Carolina primary. Mr. Romney had been eager to tilt the race, and even called Mr. Christie after he ended his campaign to vent about Mr. Trump and say he must be stopped. On the night of the primary, Mr. Romney was close to endorsing...

    Wow- More insanity from the American left. On Friday eight ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 132 people in Paris. At least one of the Islamists posed as a refugee to enter Europe - in October. The Islamic terrorists gutted their victims on the floor of the Bataclan concert hall. Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky from Illinois told SiriuxXM radio that the Paris terrorist attacks last week were a "chilling reminder" that the U.S. needs more restrictive gun laws. France has some of the strictest gun laws in the West. Only terrorists and criminals are packing heat. Via News Alert:

    "On the day after the terror campaign in Paris that left 129 people dead and more than 300 wounded, residents of the French capital are still trying to absorb what hit them." "But they aren't angry, at least not at the perpetrators. 'They're stupid, but they aren't evil,' their friend Sabrina, an administrative worker in one of the theaters in the 11th arrondissement, said. 'They are victims of a system that excluded them from society, that's why they felt this doesn't belong to them and they could attack. There are those who live here in alienation, and we are all...
