    With Democrats preparing for the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned his colleagues that moving forward will only cause more damage to the nation. "I’d like to get this trial over sooner rather than later," Graham told "Hannity" on Tuesday. "To my Democratic colleagues, if you try to call one witness, you’re going to blow up the United States Senate. Don’t do that." Graham encouraged the opposition to get the "travesty over with" as soon as possible, especially since Trump has already left office. The South Carolina senator pointed out that not only...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain said Monday that liberals like Katie Couric and others who had called for the "deprogramming" of some Donald Trump supporters could "go to hell." McCain said she thought there would be a stronger desire for unity from Democrats in the aftermath of President Biden's election win, but she said the language from liberals had been more concerned with dehumanizing Trump supporters, which she called dangerous for Democrats and the country. Couric and several others, including McCain's "The View" colleague Sunny Hostin, have referred to Trump backers as "brainwashed" or in need of "deprogramming" in the...

    There is no other provision in the US Constitution that provides for any other person other than the Chief Justice of SCOTUS to oversee an impeachment trial of POTUS. It is explicit Any senator or congressman or congresswoman is disqualified for presiding over said "trial" over someone other then POTUS (Trump) as they are not impartial - either for or against in the previous trial would be grossly improper The impeachment article reads that it concerns " Donald John Trump, President of the United States" which is not true. The article is invalid because Trump cannot both be POTUS nor...

    President Joe Biden is calling on the Department of Labor to make this clear: Workers are entitled to refuse employment that jeopardizes their health, without sacrificing unemployment benefits. The issue is one that's played out differently state-by-state, with millions of Americans facing the choice of toiling at the front lines of a deadly pandemic or losing their ability to put food on the table.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday teased a loosening of coronavirus restrictions coming soon for parts of the Empire State — but said the return of indoor dining for hard-hit New York City restaurants isn’t in the cards just yet. “I think we’re at a new place now, and we can start to adjust that valve and start to open up more economic activity and reduce some of the restrictions,” said Cuomo during a press briefing at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo.

    They’re not revolutionaries if they’ve had the path of least resistance cleared for them and allowed to set up shop where they have. They were “cleared in hot” and it’s been burning ever since. They are always going to have their patented delusions of grandeur that they’re something really special. They think way too much of themselves and they need to come to that realization. These are still “the children”, who’ve been under the impression since they could walk, that they are the world and future, god’s gift to man and the genius offspring of the least appreciative generation of...

    Earlier today Team Biden changed the Twitter listing of the U. S. Ambassador to Israel to “U. S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza.” Didn’t go over well: CONFIRMED: Israel threatened to expel the US Ambassador if President Biden didn't change the name of the Israeli ambassador back. Two thoughts: a) Biden's team made this change within an hour of taking control, b) Israel forced a retraction within two hours. Crazy.
