    Representative Mike Turner (R-OH) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Attorney General Merrick Garland was not above the law while discussing the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate. Turner said, “Well, we have a number of concerns. One is whether or not the raid was justified. We have this list from the FBI, but we don’t have conclusive as to whether or not this is actually classified material and whether or not it rises to the level of the highest classified material. On a bipartisan basis, Congress is saying, show us the goods.”

    Progressive Democrat Nina Turner teased a 2024 presidential bid during a concession speech on Tuesday after she was defeated in her bid to challenge Democratic Representative Shontel Brown. Brown defeated Turner with 66.3 percent of the vote to 33.7 percent in Ohio's 11th congressional district. Turner had read most of her concession speech from her phone but toward the end of her remarks, she said she would speak "extemporaneously" and stopped reading. "Sister Turner ain't going nowhere," Turner said and the crowed applauded and cheered. Turner made reference to the late former Representative Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman ever...

    Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) on Wednesday demanded that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley turn over all intelligence he had showing that China had believed in the days leading up to the 2020 election that the United States was planning to attack it. Milley had allegedly called Chinese Gen. Li Zuocheng and said, “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise. It’s not going to be a bolt out of...

    Ok, so now weÂ’re supposed to impeach a sitting President of the United States based not just on hearsay and rank gossip, but on what Gordon Sondland assumed. And thus, the dumbest impeachment effort in the history of the known universe continues apace. Ambassador Sondland gave us a 45 minute opening statement this morning, longer even than the mind-numbing long and winding road of hearsay and gossip delivered by Bill Taylor a week ago. During that opening statement, the self-serving Sondland threw literally everyone involved in this entire Ukrainian fake controversy under the bus. He did his best to leave...

    From sanctuary cities to brutally high taxes, California is the undisputed center of gravity for today’s far-left. If you want to see how liberal policies would look on a national level, you don’t have to imagine it. You can just look at the thousands fleeing the once-great state. In the latest chapter of California’s descent into liberal madness, the city of Berkeley – a hotbed of radical liberalism – became the first city in America to ban natural gas from new homes and businesses, including restaurants that use natural gas for stoves. Environmentalists are reportedly hailing this development as a...

    Two top executives at AT&T and WarnerMedia flew to Atlanta a year ago to reassure Ted Turner to his face that the company would respect what he created and maintain editorial integrity at CNN, according to former CNN president Tom Johnson, who was also at the meeting. They met for lunch March 6, 2018 at the private Capital City Club in downtown Atlanta, about four blocks from Turner’s residence and a half mile from CNN Center. At the time, Dallas-based AT&T thought it was close to closing on its merger with Time Warner, which had purchased Turner Broadcasting from Turner...

    You gotta see this video of the worst woman EVER being pulled over by the cops in Tenafly NJ: Her name is Caren Turner. At the time she was a Port Authority Official and a Democratic lobbyist, and a former aide to Hillary Clinton. And she might as well have “I’m with her” tattooed on her forehead, because she is EXACTLY what I imagine when I think of Hillary’s biggest supporters. She’s white, upper middle class, entitled, 60+, and desperately wants to see a woman President before she dies. The car was pulled over for having tinted windows and an...

Evident in this roughly chronological exposition is his academic and architectural training, with early traces of what will eventually become Turner’s style as pre-impressionist Painter of Light.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – Nina Turner, the Democratic former state senator from Cleveland who has emerged as a rallying figure for Bernie Sanders' disappointed supporters, said she is considering an offer to run for vice president on the Green Party's national ticket. Massachusetts physician Jill Stein, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, reached out with the pitch, Turner told Sunday evening in a telephone interview. The Green Party opens its convention Thursday in Houston. Turner would stand for nomination there if she agrees to be Stein's running mate. Her decision is expected in the coming days.

    (CNN) — The number appears resounding: More than one million people want Judge Aaron Persky to lose his job for what's been widely viewed as a lenient sentence in the Brock Turner rape case. So, more people than who live in San Francisco want to see Persky tossed out for handing a white, well-to-do former Stanford University athlete a six-month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. But will this yield any real action, or is this just another example of "slacktivism" or "clicktivism," arguably meaningless acts of supporting social causes without investing any real effort in effecting change?
