There's something not good about "massaging" definitions in the English language. Is there anything that is not subject to manipulation?

Roughly 108 Republicans have co-sponsored the green card giveaway, called HR.1044 or the “”Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019” — even though the Democrats’ legislation is backed by Silicon Valley investors who oppose the GOP.

President Trump never revoked former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times. A CIA spokesperson declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner the agency does not discuss individual security clearances. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment. The revelation comes after Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to

For more than a decade, the United States had a problem: three Rwandan men, sitting in jail in Virginia, who had stood accused of brutally murdering tourists in Africa—but now had a chance of winning release onto American streets. The three had been rounded up after a bloody 1999 attack that made headlines across three continents, in which two Americans and six other Western tourists on a gorilla-watching visit to the Ugandan rainforest were killed with machetes and axes. The crime was so horrific that U.S. prosecutors charged the men under terrorism statutes, extracted them from Rwanda and then took

In answer to a student's question at the Iowa State Fair on Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden proclaimed that there are "at least three" genders. When asked to explain what they were, Biden dismissed the young woman's question. "Don't play games with me, kid," he said irritably. Then he grabbed her arm forcefully and added "by the way, the first one to come out for marriage was me." Katie is a young student from Iowa. She asked former VP Joe Biden how many genders there are. Joe answered “at least 3.” When asked to clarify

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic primary frontrunner, made another gaffe Thursday when he told a crowd in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.” Biden, who famously directed supporters to a wrong number during last month’s debate -- and recently misidentified the sites of recent mass shootings -- quickly corrected himself after some applause from the crowd at the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC, and finished, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.” Biden, who in 2006 drew criticism with a comment about Indian-Americans moving to Delaware, the state that Biden represented when he served in the U.S. Senate,

The Daily Beast reported this morning, "The Biggest Bombshells in Newly Unsealed Epstein Documents." Hours later, he was dead in his jail cell. Officials call it suicide. I'm thinking Arkancide. (Snip)He was on suicide watch. I wonder if any of the suicide watchers loses his job. Likely not. The public doesn't mind if we dispose of this rat without a trial. But many rich and powerful people will also escape a trial, including the prosecutors who let him skate in Florida a decade ago.

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on Thursday that calls for letting agricultural land return to the wilderness and for people to eat more plants and fewer animals. The report reiterates the globalist organization’s claim that man’s use of natural resources to improve people’s lives around the world is making “global warming” worse and will make food more scarce, more expensive, and less nutritional. “The cycle is accelerating,” NASA climate scientist Cynthia Rosenzweig, a co-author of the report, said in an Associated Press report. “The threat of climate change affecting people’s food on their dinner table is increasing.”

(Snip) “Epstein, because of his earlier suicide attempt, was in a special area of the lockup where he was monitored 24/7. He was wearing paper clothes with which he could not have hung himself,” he said, “and he was given blankets which he could not use to hang himself.” (Snip) Hansen claims not every person watching Epstein was a corrections officer. “They are so short staffed at this facility that officials use inmates themselves as trustees to monitor other inmates,”

Connor Betts’ 22-year-old sibling was named by authorities as Megan Betts in the days after the mass shooting, with cops releasing a statement saying relatives had lost “a daughter.” But he apparently went by the name Jordan Cofer, and identified as a male, although he was only “out” to a small circle of friends, according to Splinter News, which spoke to several of those pals anonymously.

Doug Collins to call him out for being off the mark. “This is formal impeachment proceedings,” Nadler told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “We are investigating all the evidence, gathering the evidence. And we will [at the] conclusion of this — hopefully by the end of the year — vote articles of impeachment to the House floor. Or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.” (tweet) Nadler's comments come after House Judiciary Democrats last month
