I would not give a dime to any organisation that Ryan is involved with. If that dud had resigned his Speakership and let a real man like Steve Scalise (nearly assassinated by a Bernie supporter) the Republicans might have held onto the House.

And to think this guy used to quote Hayek and feign loyalty to Jack Kemp. At a time when unemployment rates are at inconceivable lows and economic growth is exploding thanks to, cough cough, reduction in regulation and crony captalism, Paul Ryan needs to form a think tank that reflects upon the successes of out current president as the tide rises along with all the ships. Repent.

Matthias Ajple clearly has some issues. Not to mention a problem with basic facts. According to Newsweek, Ajple, 43, went up to a man, 67 year old Robert Youngblood, who was wearing a MAGA hat at a bar at the Hurricane Grill restaurant in Vero Beach, Florida. According to what Youngblood told the police, Ajple said, “You should go back to Russia, you f**king Communist!” He then slapped the bill of Youngblood’s hat and spat on him. Ajple left the restaurant but not before Youngblood was able to get his license plate number.

An analysis by the Associated Press of campaign finance records and court documents determined that Barack Obama's 2012 inauguration received hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal donations from a Saudi national via a straw donor. U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from making those sorts of political contributions. But the donations Sheikh Mohammed Al Rahbani tried to send to Obama’s inaugural committee were funneled through a seasoned straw donor, the records and the AP analysis show.

A new study has found that the majority of coverage dedicated to the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump is based on reports from anonymous sources. The Media Research Center revealed on Tuesday that in the month after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., formally announced the launch of the impeachment inquiry, 322 minutes of air-time was tallied between ABC News, CBS News, and NBC News with 140 individual news segments. Among those segments, roughly 57 percent "relied at least in part on information from anonymous sources."Comparing the evening news programs, both "CBS Nightly News" and "NBC Nightly News" tied

In case you were wondering, Hillary Clinton is still bitter about the 2016 election. And she’s out for revenge. Clinton’s latest target was Tulsi Gabbard, whom she described as a “Russian asset” and the Kremlin’s preferred third-party candidate. Clinton also hyperventilated about “a bunch of sites and bots” helping Gabbard’s campaign, as if the American people aren’t intelligent enough to choose whom to support or oppose. In 2016, millions of Americans were smart enough to choose Clinton’s opponent, and they’ll choose wisely again — Russia fear-mongering aside.

Any effort to remove President Trump from office through the impeachment process is going to come up against a brick wall in the Senate, where 20 Republicans would have to defect to oust him.That is likely to remain the case no matter what revelations come out of the Democrats' investigation for the simple reason that Trump remains extremely popular among the party's base — more so than even Barack Obama was at a similar point in his presidency.Though the most recent Gallup poll finds Trump's approval rating down at just 39% among the adult population, among Republicans his approval rating is 87%.

Former national security adviser Susan Rice believes President Trump should have notified his predecessor about the U.S. raid that ended in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Rice appeared on CBS's Face The Nation Sunday following Trump's press conference, during which he announced Baghdadi's death. During the presser, Trump confirmed that the now-former head of ISIS was killed after detonating a suicide vest while he was surrounded by three of his children in a cave. Rice began by praising the military action, calling it "a major milestone" and adding that "it's one that we should be welcoming quite plainly."

The former vice president, however, was rebuffed by the church’s pastor, Father Robert E. Morey, because of his support for abortion.

The tactics some Republicans are using to defend President Donald Trump against being impeached (or indicted) by the House and convicted (or removed from office) by the Senate include confusing the public about what these terms mean. One thrust is to suggest that for a president to be impeached, he must have committed a crime.

President Donald Trump's low-profile appearance Sunday night at Game 5 of the World Series came at a high-profile moment of his presidency - yet he still drew loud boos and chants of 'lock him up'. Wearing a dark suit and a tie, Trump arrived at Nationals Park just before the first pitch of the Houston Astros-Washington Nationals match-up. Hours earlier, he had announced that U.S. forces had hit the hiding place of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed in the raid in northeast Syria. A military success against a most-wanted enemy of the U.S. and its allies could have provided the president a rare moment of bipartisan comity,

Environmentalists intent on finding new ways to reduce so-called greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change have proposed a novel method: feed cows seaweed to diminish methane in flatulence, belches, and manure. Ermias Kebreab, an zoology professor at the University of California–Davis, led a team in producing a bovine meal regimen containing varying levels of Asparagopsis armata, a strain of red seaweed, and fed it to 12 dairy cows over a two-month period. In a mix containing just 1 percent seaweed, the cows’ methane emissions went down by a stunning 60 percent.
