Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the ranking member of the Senate intelligence committee, appeared on several Sunday talk shows to discuss the never-ending, constantly expanding investigation into any possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. (Snip) “I think the whole role of these social media platforms in terms of disseminating fake news is a policy question that we´re going to have to address,” Warner said. Here is the entire exchange between Warner and host John Dickerson: “Another area that it´s -- it appears you´re interested in is the data operation of the Trump campaign, which Jared Kushner was overseeing. Explain that,”
Comments: And just what do those weasle words mean coming from that Democrat hack? You know when Democrats start blathering on like that it usually involves censoring conservatives. Now he wants to investigate Internet bots? I doubt that he will do that related to those who bombard sponsors when they want them stop advertising shows like Hannity. Where is Richard Burr? Has he permanently gone underground? You would never know he is the leader of that committee because Warner is the only one who appears before the cameras.
This is a direct attack on Trump and his use of Twitter. Make no mistake, the Dems´ ability to control the narrative has been destroyed by Trump´s use of twitter. And the Dems are livid! Nothing new in the Dem approach to limit 1st Amendment rights. Democrats, liberal, anti-progressives hate freedom of speech and will do anything to squelch it.
Yashar Ali reported Saturday that, Eric Bolling’s Son, Eric Chase, died last night. At this time the circumstances remain unclear. Chase, was 19 years old and Bolling’s only child. “Very sad news, Eric Bolling’s son, who was only 19, died last night,” said Ali. “By all accounts, Eric was incredibly devoted to his son. Heartbreaking.” (Snip) A source close to Eric Bolling also confirmed the news to Mediaite. A statement from Fox News is expected soon. Eric Bolling had been a rising star at Fox News, where he had hosted the now canceled television program, The Specialists and was a regular
Fox Business’ Charles Payne, host of “Making Money,” is reportedly returning to the network after being cleared in a sexual harassment investigation. Howard Kurtz, who hosts “Media Buzz” on Fox News, tweeted Friday that Payne is returning to host “Making Money” and has been cleared of wrongdoing in the investigation. Fox, however, has not commented on Payne’s return. (Snip) Payne was suspended from the network in July after Scottie Nell Hughes, a frequent guest, accused him of coercing her into a sexual relationship. She says her appearances on the network declined after she broke off the relationship, something Payne warned
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law set up a secret back channel to help a top Democratic Senator lobby White House officials in favor of the “DACA” amnesty for 800,000 young illegals. Sen. Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democratic Senator, spilled the beans in an interview with Reuters, where he described how he worked with Jared Kushner and liberal Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham to promote the DACA amnesty in April and July. According to Reuters’s account, which describes the illegals as “Dreamers”: “We initially had a conversation (with Kushner), at [Iowa Republican] Senator (Chuck) Grassley’s invitation, on criminal justice and I asked Mr.
The Trump administration has no plans to charge former IRS official Lois Lerner over her role in the Tea Party targeting scandal, the Justice Department said Friday in response to calls by Republican lawmakers to revisit the case. In a letter to the lawmakers, the Justice Department said that "reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence." This past April, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., had asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take a "fresh look" at the case. Despite numerous hearings and inquiries into the
Prosecutors have given Imran Awan a copy of the hard drive of a House laptop that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to keep law enforcement from looking at, court filings show, suggesting prosecutors intend to bring charges related to the underlying cybersecurity and theft probe. The hard-drive copy was included in discovery even though Wasserman Schultz has said the laptop contains House information on it and is a government-paid work laptop, and even though Imran was fired and banned from the House network because of suspected cybersecurity violations. Imran left the laptop, with username RepDWS, in a phone booth in
WASHINGTON — Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about so-called members of “antifascist” (Antifa) groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush. When asked by The Daily Caller Thursday if Antifa should be considered a terrorist organization, Kaine replied: “I don’t like broad brushes and I don’t know enough about them to say that they’re terrorists but people who do violent things. The law should take care of them.” The Department of Homeland Security has called the activities of Antifa “domestic terrorist violence,” according to Politico. Kaine’s son, Linwood, was
FBI Director Christopher Wray said Thursday that he has not witnessed President Trump or the White House attempting to influence the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential campaign. “I can say very confidently that I have not detected any whiff of interference with that investigation,” Wray said during a speech at an event hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance in Washington, D.C. Wray was confirmed as FBI director last month. He replaced James Comey, who Trump fired on May 9. Trump’s firing of Comey has generated allegations that he attempted to quash the investigation into possible collusion
President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) have agreed to pursue a deal that would permanently remove the requirement that Congress repeatedly raise the debt ceiling, three people familiar with the decision said. Trump and Schumer discussed the idea Wednesday during an Oval Office meeting. The two, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.), agreed to work together over the next several months to try to finalize a plan, which would need to be approved by Congress. One of the people familiar described it as a “gentlemen’s agreement.”
Ever since Charlottesville, the tyrannical left has been on the rampage, trying to purge anyone and everyone who had an improper thought. Well, except for Margaret Sanger, apparently. I guess she´s cool. That´s the mentality at work at the University of California-Berkeley, where students have been battling with administrators to purge the name of a past university president from one campus building. (Snip) However, the brave warriors at Berkeley have another name in mind to grace Barrows Hall. Who is this outstanding individual more worthy of recognition? A cop killer: The BSU insisted that Barrows Hall be renamed after Black Panther Assata Shakur,
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton’s memoir slash election postmortem, What Happened, will be released, followed by a cross-country airing of grievances-cum-national book tour that will run through December. Perhaps unsurprisingly, members of her own party and even people who worked to get her elected are less than enthused about the 15-city tour, which kicks off in D.C. on September 18. (Snip) Democratic strategists worry it will inflame tensions within the Democratic Party just when it most desperately needs to be coming together. The book and tour are coming “maybe at the worst possible time, as we are fighting some of the
The head of the Pentagon’s Defense Security Service says the troubled and clogged process to grant security clearances has led to criminals receiving access to classified information. “I’ve got murderers who have access to classified information,” Daniel Payne, head of the Defense Security Service, said during a conference Wednesday, McClatchy reports. “I have rapists. I have pedophiles. I have people involved in child porn.” The Defense Security Service grants temporary security clearances for civilian workers and contractors, and the Department of Defense (DOD) has been so hard pressed for employees with clearances that some criminals have slipped through. “I grant the interim clearances
Vanity Fair, which previously featured Melania Trump on one of its covers, snubbed the First Lady of the United States in its 2017 best-dressed list – while featuring numerous liberals, including both Obamas. The list, comprised of over 40 people, is broken into eight-sections: Women, Men, Hollywood, Originals, Couples, Professionals, Special Citation, and Hall Of Fame. Missing from the list was First Lady Melania Trump, which is odd to say the least, given that Vanity Fair featured her on the cover of the Mexican edition of the magazine in January.
Washington - Hillary Clinton on Sunday called Donald Trump’s inaugural speech as president “a cry from the white nationalist gut”. Clinton was speaking in her first televised interview since her stunning defeat in the election in November, two days ahead of the publication of What Happened, her book about her defeat. (Snip) During the campaign, in a moment widely criticized and weaponised by the Trump campaign, Clinton memorably referred to half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. She expressed regret at the time. On Sunday, Clinton was unapologetic for the context of her remarks and said Trump’s base
Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there. "I thought I was going to win," she said. The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper´s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea´s family. In an interview from her home on the CBS program "Sunday Morning" delving into her
On the same day that Fox News announced that it had “agreed to part ways amicably” with suspended conservative host Eric Bolling, Bolling’s son Eric, Jr. was found dead in Boulder, Colorado. (snip) A strange anomaly in this story is that Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer who wrote the August 4 article alleging that Eric Bolling was guilty of inappropriate behavior years earlier, claims to have been the first one to break the news of Chase Bolling’s death. For example, in a HuffPost article on September 9 time stamped 2:31 P.M. E.T., Hayley Miller writes “Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in an interview broadcast Sunday that while she is "done" being a candidate, she is not leaving politics. "Is your political career over?" Jane Pauley asked Clinton on "CBS Sunday Morning." "Yes," Clinton responded. "As an active politician, it´s over. "I am done with being a candidate," she added. "But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country´s future is at stake." Clinton´s comments come days before the release her new book, "What Happened," which accounts her experience in the 2016 presidential election. The former Democratic nominee reflects
Keep these numbers in mind: 316 to 90 and 80 to 17. They were the lopsided votes in the House and Senate in support of the deal President Trump made with Democratic leaders on storm aid, the debt limit and government funding. Remarkably, all the no voters were Republicans. The numbers shout that we are witnessing a potential turning point in the Trump presidency, one that could further shake up Washington and rattle the calcified political parties. Frustrated by the failure of GOP majorities in both chambers to pass his agenda, Trump followed through on threats to work with Democrats. Signs suggest it was
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down with Jane Pauley on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ and gave her first T.V. interview since the 2016 presidential election. Hillary spoke about her new memoir ‘What Happened’ which is set to release September 12. (Photo) Not only did Hillary Clinton blame Comey for her election loss when he decided to re-open the FBI investigation eleven days before the election, she doubled down on her ‘Deplorable’ insult to Trump supporters. Hillary reacted to a clip of herself from September 9, 2016 saying, “You could put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket
An elderly white man was shoved to the floor and derided as a “honky motherf----r” by a black woman, who also told him to sit in the back of the East Side bus they were riding, police sources said Monday. The suspect, believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, is still being sought. The incident happened about 6:30 a.m. Sept. 3 when the 80-year-old victim got on a city bus near E. 34th St. and First Ave. and sat up front, sources said. The suspect apparently took exception to where he was sitting.
The Gold Star father who came to Indianapolis to speak about civil discourse ripped into President Donald Trump, calling him "illiterate and uneducated" on Saturday evening. In reference to Trump´s rollback of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, , Khizr Khan´s criticism came after a community conversation, "Talking Through Unity and Civility with Khizr Khan," on Saturday evening at St. Luke´s United Methodist Church. John Krull, host of "No Limits" on WFYI-FM (90.1), moderated the discussion. Khan is the Gold Star father who challenged Trump to rethink his stance on Muslims´ and religious minorities´ place in society during the 2016 presidential election. Khan´s son was killed in
Who would ever dream of handing political leadership to someone whose crowning career achievement was a high-paying no-show job? As its next presidential candidate, is Michelle Obama the best the Democrats can come up with? That´s the view of pollster Douglas Schoen, who thinks they don´t stand a chance otherwise. In a piece for The Hill, he writes: As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020. This alternative plan requires a new, united
The start of the NFL season is normally a pretty big deal across the country. Apparently Los Angeles and San Francisco didn´t get the memo. The Rams and 49ers each opened their season at home Sunday, and both teams had to start their games with lots of empty seats in the stadium. The Rams are hosting the the Colts, but it seems like the Los Angeles fans are not that concerned about being there to see it in person. The 49ers are welcoming the Panthers, but not even Cam Newton could attract a crowd that wanted to show up for
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is reportedly considering a Senate run in Utah if longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch retires. UtahPolicy.com reports that sources close to Mr. Romney say he’s making preparations to run, but some say Mr. Hatch likely won’t make a decision on whether he’ll run for another term until the end of the year. It would be Mr. Hatch’s eight term in office if he decides to run again. Mr. Hatch has said in the past that he’d be willing to step aside if someone like Mr. Romney wanted to run for the seat. Mr. Romney was the GOP presidential nominee in the 2012 elections, but lost to former President Barack Obama,
Hillary Clinton’s latest book “What Happened” and her ensuing book tour are the latest examples of the former presidential candidate creating fresh tensions within the Democratic Party. What happened is not terribly complicated: Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump and weakened the Democratic Party in the process. In her book, Secretary Clinton blames her loss on the Russians, former FBI Director James Comey and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), among others, yet the only person she does not seem to blame is herself. Clinton continues to take the focus away from the party and
