    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) says that she and her husband are ready to leave their home in Alaska and “get outside and do more.” “We were anchored here for the kids. Now our youngest daughter is going to be out of school — she's going to go to nursing school — she'll be taken care of." “And we're ready to do a lot more.” “We’re not going to be holed up in Wasilla, Alaska, the rest of our life..." Palin and her husband, Todd Palin, said they have lived in Wasilla since they first met in high school....

    Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says that President Trump could fight in court to force Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to recuse himself in the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Dershowitz made the comments in an interview on CNN's "Smerconish" after it was reported by The New York Times that Rosenstein brought up the possibility of recording Trump in the Oval Office last year. Rosenstein has said that he "never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false." Dershowitz suggested...

    Ha ha ha ha ha! Rod Rosenstein was kidding around with the guys about wearing a wire while meeting with the President in order to collect info that could set him up for removal under the 25th Amendment. Hee hee hee.  Just kidding! It was just a joke!You know what? In the real world people get fired for jokes every day. Take this poor bloke, who thought he’d signed out of his Chrysler account and into his personal Twitter account: Not only did poor Scott Bartosiewicz, a social media strategist for New Media Strategies, get fired but Chrysler declined to...
  • Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 11/9' And 'Life Itself' Bomb At Friday Box Office

    [Snip] So, in that sense, it’s no surprise that Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 tanked in its whopping 1,719 theater wide release debut. [Snip] folks are even less likely to flock to an openly political documentary, and frankly even those on the left don’t necessarily want to pay to see a 125-minute crash course of the current horrors of the day. I’d gladly pay triple the ticket price to see a version of the movie without you-know-who babbling incoherently. I’d argue that Moore’s motives in making the movie were less about spreading the word through its contents than in using the...

    It happened to me! ^ | December 2, 2016 | Rachel Adams
    As I rode the crosstown bus, I imagined my new psychiatrist would ask how I was feeling. I had seen her for the first time a week before, after months of feeling anxious and unhinged by the deaths of two friends over the summer, overcommitments at work, and a childcare situation that seemed unbearably complicated. When my 45 minutes was up, she suggested that I come back. In the week between our appointments, Donald Trump had been elected President and everything had changed. It seemed like my frayed nerves had been projected outward and my personal problems would need...

    Get ready folks....there is much more to come. POTUS, Donald J. Trump has begun his noted multi campaign rally trek for the upcoming Mid-Term Elections (Election Day, November 6, 2018).

Trump turns the folks out in MEGA numbers. These two massive rallies turned out over 40,000 Trump supporters, if not more. Thousands of potential rally attendees could not get into...

    CNS News ^ | 28AUG18 | Charlie Daniels
    Charlie Daniels To anybody who will admit the truth, the animosity and downright hate that exists in the political arena goes way past anything this nation has ever experienced before. The vitriol has grown to the point that party power comes before patriotism for many of these jaded partisans, to the point they will fight tooth and nail to defeat things that would be beneficial for the country just because it’s the opposing party’s idea.  They’d literally rather do harm to the people they are sworn to serve than lose any political ground. They develop hyperbolic phrases, “tax cuts...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) All the BetoMania SJWs and snowflakes be all like “Say whaaaaaaattttt?”. – In their debate on the SMU campus Friday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz forced gun-grabbing Democrat challenger Irish Bob O’Rourke into saying, multiple times, that “I fully support the second amendment.” No word if the all-abortion, all-the-time Congressman from El Paso also now claims to somehow be “pro-life”, but it would be an equally honest statement. Hooboy. 11/9 appears to be roughly its box office gross. – Michael Moore’s new Trump-bashing film, stupidly titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” is tanking at the...

    In his new book “Fear,” Bob Woodward recounts that in April 2017, after President Trump saw images of dead Syrian children with their mouths foaming from a sarin attack, he called Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and issued an order: Get me a plan for a military strike to take out Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “Let’s f------ ing kill him!” Trump told Mattis, according to the book. “Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f---ing lot of them.” Mattis, Woodward writes, assured the president that “he would get right on it.” But as soon as Mattis hung up the phone, he told...

    After the big bang of the Singapore summit in June, with its showy but vague North Korean commitment to denuclearization, many analysts doubted that the deal had any real substance. But we're beginning to see the first signs of what a serious accord would look like. This week's North-South summit meeting in Pyongyang produced accord on some basic essentials of a real denuclearization process. North Korea agreed to accept internal inspectors to monitor destruction of one of its test sites, a first step toward the broader inspection process that will be essential for any verifiable pact. North Korea also agreed...

    Sen. Susan Collins said she is "appalled" by a tweet from President Donald Trump disparaging the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The Maine Republican called the statement from the President "inappropriate and wrong." "I was appalled by the President's tweet," Collins said Friday, according to audio obtained by CNN of an event where she spoke with local reporters.

    First lady Melania Trump has apparently had enough. In a fundraising memo to GOP supporters, the soft spoken Trump has ripped the media and Democrats for lying about her husband and his supporters. “Democrats and the opposition media are doing everything they possibly can to discredit Donald with false accusations by spreading their fake news and making it appear that he does not have the support of America’s voters,” she penned....

    I'm not usually one to hone in on someone's personal failings, or to hector people for their sins, but considering these slime-balls in the press insist upon their own virtue, all I have to say is "WTF?" Here we have an obvious alcoholic passing judgment on President Trump, who, AFAIK, is a teetotaler, while heavily intoxicated. Am I the only one troubled by this? Watch the entire video. I haven't seen Mr. Garrett this discomfited since Donald Trump clowned him while honoring our veterans during his presidential campaign.

    President Donald Trump issued an ominous warning about the Justice Department and the FBI on Friday, promising further firings to get rid of a “lingering stench” following reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording the president. Trump, speaking at a rally in Missouri, did not explicitly mention the Rosenstein furor, which was first reported by The New York Times and confirmed by The Associated Press. But Trump lashed out against what he sees as anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department, touting the firings he has orchestrated, unnerving many in federal law enforcement and sparking fears about the...

    Fox News ^ | September 21, 2018 | Gregg Jarrett
    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup -- a plot to overthrow the president. As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was “regretful and emotional.” His behavior was described as “erratic.” He blamed Trump. So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him. He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who...

    Radio host Mark Levin warned fellow conservatives on Friday evening that they should not rush to conclusions about the New York Times‘ latest story alleging that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had plotted against President Donald Trump. He warned that Trump’s enemies might be trying to goad him into firing Rosenstein before the midterm elections by leaking information from memoranda created by former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired in March for lying. In addition, Levin cautioned conservatives to consider why the Times — with its record of inaccurate reporting on the Trump administration — would have wanted...

During a press conference, authorities said they zeroed in on a location Friday where they thought he might be hiding near Crider Road. A K-9 picked up on his scent and "took him down." He was taken into...
