I'm sure they have been working with the White House and President Trump's personal lawyers to keep them informed of the secret machinations of Shifty Shift, Nasty Nancy, Nadler the Hutt, and the rest of the Star Wars bar scene that passes for the Democrats in Congress.

The only House member who could add to this strong group is Devin Nunes. Perhaps Devin is advising the President and/or AG Barr on true FISA reform, the Biden scandal in Ukraine and/or the coup plotters of 2016-17. Someone has to light a fire under AG Barr.

I believe a future president is on that list - Elise Stefanik, representing an Upstate New York congressional district.. She is bright, tough as a nail, and she stands up to leftist loon organizations who try to take her out in her district. She needs a few more years political experience, and it would be good for her to run against Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator from NY, who harmed herself with her ridiculous run for the dimocrat presidential nomination.

Al Gore flubbed the name of activist Greta Thunberg as he tried to commend her as a leader of the movement to tackle climate change, a cause he has long championed. "When morally-based, social revolutions gain the momentum necessary when the young generation takes on the cost," the former vice president said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "Greta Thunberry, and she is quick to deflect to all of the others who have followed her lead and joined her in leading — this is a global phenomenon."

NEW YORK — Billionaire and presidential candidate Tom Steyer reiterated his support Wednesday for reparations for African-Americans suffering from the legacy of slavery. “We would retell the story over the last 401 years so everybody understands not just the legalized, institutionalized injustice in racism — which is definitely a huge part of this story — but also the contribution of the African-American community,” Steyer said in an interview with Yahoo News’ “Hot Mic With Brittany Shepherd.” “I don’t think we can be the country that we want to be until we acknowledge the past and move to accept the mistakes

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) surged ahead of his rivals to join former Vice President Joe Biden in a statistical dead heat atop the 2020 Democratic presidential primary field, according to a new poll. Sanders now leads the field with 27 percent support from Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, based on the CNN national poll released Wednesday. Sanders’s support jumped 7 points since last month, placing him in a virtual tie for first with Biden, who is at 24 percent. Sanders’s 3-point lead is within the poll’s margin of error. Biden’s support had dipped just 2 points since December. Sanders has seen

An emotional Joe Biden broke down in tears in an interview on Wednesday when asked about how his late son guides him on the campaign trail. "Beau should be the one running for president, not me," Biden said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." Beau was the attorney general of Delaware when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He died in 2015 at the age of 46. Joe Biden said his son pushed him to stay politically engaged during his cancer fight. "He was worried I would walk away" from public service, Biden said on Wednesday morning. "He is part of

SEATTLE - Seattle could see more tiny home villages pop up across the city. On Wednesday, City Council members will discuss a proposal to add dozens more sanctioned homeless encampments. The proposal would allow 40 sanctioned encampments, each having up to 100 residents. The city's legislation would exempt churches and religious groups from acquiring a land use permit, making it easier to set up the tiny home villages and run them.

OAKLAND — Following a unanimous vote by the city council Tuesday night, Oakland has now become the first city in California to ban criminal background checks on potential renters. “Indescribable emotions and feelings,” said John Jones III of Oakland, who got out of prison in 2012 and struggled to find a place to live in Oakland despite his well-paying job as an aviation mechanic. Jones said he’s among the many who left prison only to end up on the streets, contributing to Oakland’s homeless crisis. That’s why he’s been lobbying hard for the Oakland City Council to pass the Fair

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame's status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she's an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent. Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population. Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

The Senate spectator gallery was at least half-empty throughout the first week of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial and senators serving as the jury in the marathon sessions are taking notice — some stunned that there aren’t more people watching history unfold, while others understand the public avoiding the repetitive proceedings.“I’m really surprised at that because this is kind of historic and I would think this would be an opportunity for people to get in there regardless of whose side you are on,” Sen.

New York - The Pentagon has announced that 34 US service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries resulting from the Iranian missile attack on US forces in Iraq earlier this month, in spite of Donald Trump's downplaying of the wounds as "headaches". The strike came following Mr Trump's decision to kill Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, and the US said at the time that no American personnel were injured. Since then, Mr Trump has acknowledged that the Americans had been injured, but downplayed their significance. According to the Pentagon, eight of the service members were flown to the US from Germany for treatment, nine are still receiving treatment in Germany,

President Trump on Friday becomes the first U.S. President to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., a march he previously addressed via video, a march sure to be ignored by the lamestream media or downplayed as a gathering of white supremacists. It reflects his belief that every human life begins at conception and is a gift from God and reflects the fear, an unspoken motive for impeachment, that Trump will get to appoint more Supreme Court justices forming a majority to overturn the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade, another SCOTUS decision which, like Dred Scott, declared an entire class of people as less than human.

As the third day of the ongoing impeachment trial of President Trump wrapped up in the Senate chamber, most of the drama was elsewhere -- with one witness for the Democrats accusing a Republican senator of "defamation" and "slander" after she questioned his patriotism and implicated him in a scheme to take down Trump from inside the White House. The off-field spat began Thursday evening on Twitter, when Tennessee GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn quoted the commanding officer of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as saying that Vindman was a "political activist in uniform.”

Cleaning, cooking, raising the children and putting her husband’s every need first — it’s all in a day’s work for the rising number of women in their 30s and 40s who class themselves as a so called ‘Tradwife’.Raised to believe they could have it all, they’ve had a go at smashing the glass ceiling but have since quit their careers for a more submissive life at home that has echoes of 1950s Britain.Back then, with scant opportunities beyond the home, women had little choice but to be housewives, and many longed to cast off the shackles of domestic life.Small wonder, then, that critics have denounced the Tradwife trend
