White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney appeared on “Fox News Sunday” to discuss a remark he made last week about Trump saying financial aid to Ukraine depended on the investigation of Democrats — this being interpreted by the anti-Trump media as an admission of quid pro quo.A remark Mulvaney has already walked back.“Once again, the media has decided to misconstrue my comments to advance a biased and political witch hunt against President Trump,” he stated afterwards. “Let me be clear, there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid and any investigation into the 2016 election.”Fox News host Chris Wallace was having none of it,

The hypnotic babble of the media beguiles otherwise intelligent people into believing that Russia colluded with President Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton, that Trump forced Ukraine into investigating Hunter Biden and did something, we can’t say what, to be impeached, and that thousands of poor Kurds are being displaced because we pulled some hundreds of our troops from the Syrian-Turkish border. Rational, fact-based analysis shows all this to be untrue, but breaking through this hazy thinking is not an easy task. Maybe because that’s the true aim: eradicating reason totally.

A federal judge has ruled against a Florida law saying ex-felons can only vote if they are up to date on money owed to the state.U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle declared the rule as unconstitutional in his 55-page opinion. Hinkle acknowledged in his Friday ruling that the law will still likely go through the Florida Supreme Court or a federal trial.(Photo) The Florida State Conference of the NAACP, the Orange County Branch of the NAACP and the League of Women Voters of Florida challenged the law, which has ultimately led to the preliminary injunction from Hinkle.

Not to be outdone by Cory Booker's "women are people" moment in the last debate, Beto O'Rourke decided to virtue signal his pro-woman accolades on Saturday by tweeting that "women across America don’t have access to the period products they need," and since it is #NationalPeriodDay (who knew that was a thing?), that "men need to join women in demanding real change." Beto wants "real change" and identifies as a man for the moment (at least until he needs a Hail Mary for his campaign) and he's announced his support for the Menstrual Equity Act.

Tulsi Gabbard bashed Hillary Clinton, saying that the former Secretary of State is waging a smear campaign against her because 'she knows she can't control me'.The Democratic presidential candidate and Congresswoman from Hawaii made the claims during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday night. It comes just hours after Gabbard, 38, called Clinton 'the queen of warmongers [and the] embodiment of corruption' after Clinton suggested Gabbard was being groomed by Russians to be a third-party spoiler in the 2020 election. 'The reason why she's doing this is because ultimately she knows she can't control me,' Gabbard, who was on the campaign trail in Iowa, told Carlson.

No, this is not from the Babylon Bee. It actually comes from the Oprah Winfrey Network, and a segment featuring Professor Britney Cooper, who sports a PhD from Emory University and who currently is an associate professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. With that sort of background, perhaps it isn’t surprising to eternalize blame for obesity on racism and seem to indict President Trump for it. (snip) While this is all funny, it is also tragic. Obesity is unhealthy and unhappy to endure. Blaming others doesn’t ever lead to change in a positive direction.

Aldermen will need to approve the increase, which would kick in Jan. 1. (Snip) The tax Lightfoot wants to raise is but a fraction of the levy Chicago diners pay every time they eat out.

Adam Schiff is perfectly legal because there is no requirement in law that a vote to conduct such an inquiry be taken.

The investigation, which covered the 33,000 emails Clinton provided for review, found 91 "valid violations" attributable to 38 individuals, some of whom may face disciplinary action. Another 497 violations could not be tied to any specific person. A nine-page unclassified report was sent to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is leading the congressional oversight of the security review, in a letter from Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs Mary Elizabeth Taylor dated Oct. 16.
