A federal judge wants to know if ex-President Donald Trump plans to attend a New York trial this month resulting from a columnist’s claims that he raped her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. Judge Lewis A. Kaplan issued an order Monday directing parties in the case to notify him by April 20 whether they will be present throughout the trial, scheduled to start April 25 in Manhattan federal court.


Another NYC fuse is burning...and let's not forget that the evidentiary standard in a civil case is the preponderance standard, meaning the burden of proof is met when the jury finds that there is a greater than 50% chance that the claim is true. What do you think the odds are? Can you see the headlines?

Whatever. The only people concerned about this are those who want it to be a problem for President Trump. And, this woman is a raving lunatic.

Is this the one where the most recognizable man in NYC "raped" a women in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room after a chance meeting? Why, oh why, would anyone doubt her? If only Juanita Broaddrick had as strong a case.

This makes the obvious anti-Trumpers salivate, but is there no statute of limitations on claims like this? Did she report it to police? Rape kit? If not, why not?

Missed this below the ad: “The rape claims were made immediately after a temporary state law took effect allowing adult rape victims to sue their abusers, even if attacks happened decades ago.” What is a “temporary state law”?

As I remember this, her description of the layout of Bergdorf Goodman was inaccurate. Meaning she was lying.

So someone who can't remember when a rape occurred, never reported a rape, was allegedly raped in a store dressing room but nobody noticed, and only three decades later suddenly remembered to report it after a "temporary law" (whatever that is) came in to play is to be taken seriously? If the alleged attacker were not Donald Trump, this woman would have been laughed out of court for lack of specifics. However, since it involves Trump, the allegations must be true! If the claims were against someone like Bill Clinton or JFK, then the woman is just a crazy part of a right wing conspiracy.

This may fall under the ex post facto provision of the Constitution. Associated Press did not explain the difference between criminal and civil trials. The article is misleading.

The way I figure it, this is her revenge for him brushing her off when she threw herself at him all those years ago. Trump has never ever needed to use violence to be with a woman. He has had them throwing themselves at his feet since he was married to Ivana all those decades ago.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) isn't happy with reports that former President Donald Trump’s campaign is seeking to hire Laura Loomer, an activist with a history of bigoted and anti-Muslim remarks. Greene blasted Loomer as "mentally unstable" and a "liar." Trump recently met with Loomer and told his campaign advisers to give her a role to help boost his candidacy, either in the campaign itself or the main super PAC backing his White House bid, sources told the New York Times.

A Florida grand jury's five-month probe into the government's processing of unaccompanied migrant children is poking a major hole into President Joe Biden's border narrative, concluding his administration has been "facilitating the forced migration, sale, and abuse of foreign children." In an interim report released by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, the grand jury raised deep concerns about the Homeland Security Department and Department of Health and Human Service's Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) implementation of the Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) program, saying the government's rhetoric does not match its performance.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) suffered setbacks on Tuesday night, losing a major policy bill that was set to be included in the annual defense legislation, as well as watching his outsize influence over the party wither away after Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) won reelection in Georgia. Over the last two years, Manchin has acted as somewhat of a gatekeeper within his party, often using his vote to negotiate and boost his own priorities in exchange for support on a Democratic bill.

Conservative radio host Mark Levin went off on the “bonehead” Congressional Republicans threatening to derail Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) bid to be the next speaker of the House. Levin used his show on Tuesday to talk about how the Republican Party’s slim majority in the House of Representatives may cause a struggle for McCarthy to get the votes he needs to succeed Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Hard-right members of the Congressional GOP have publicly opposed McCarthy’s bid for the speakership, so the House minority leader is currently trying to bring these factions in line and secure the 218 votes he needs.

Former U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said on a Sunday morning news program that he is a "never-again-Trumper" and that Donald Trump is "unelectable." Ryan, a Republican who represented Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District for 20 years, was speaker of the House from 2015 to 2019. He told correspondent Jonathan Karl on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" in the wake of Trump's announced run that Republicans would lose if they backed Trump for president in 2024. “We get past Trump, we start winning elections. We stick with Trump, we keep losing elections. That’s just how I see it," Ryan said.

Democrats are napping peacefully through the US-Mexico “border” crisis they engineered. Perhaps these data will snap them from their slumber: The US Department of Homeland Security reports that the Mexican cartels’ income from smuggling illegal migrants into America has soared from $500 million in 2018 to $13 billion this year — up 2,500%. If these criminals merged into a corporation, their 2022 gross revenues would rival that of — are you sitting down? — Fox Corporation. Fox News Channel’s parent company earned $12.91 billion in the year ended June 30, 2021, and $13.97 billion 12 months later.

America’s national debt has climbed north of $31 trillion for the first time, a milestone that comes at a time of historically high inflation, rising interest rates and growing economic uncertainty. The nation’s total public debt outstanding closed at $31.1 trillion on Monday, according to Treasury Department data published Tuesday. The US government went on a borrowing spree during the Covid-19 pandemic to help shore up the nation’s economy as the deadly virus upended lives, labor markets and supply chains. Outstanding debt has climbed nearly $8 trillion since the beginning of 2020. And it has jumped by $1 trillion in just eight months.

Biden unveils toughest-ever car emissions
rules in bid to force electric vehicle purchases

The Biden administration unveiled the most aggressive tailpipe emissions ever crafted as part of its sweeping climate agenda and efforts to push Americans to buy electric vehicles (EV). The vehicle pollution standards, proposed Wednesday by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and announced by the White House, will impact car model years 2027 through 2032. The White House said the regulations would "protect public health" by achieving carbon emission reductions of nearly 10 billion tons by 2055 and would save consumers an average of $12,000 over the lifetime of vehicles. "Cars and truck manufacturers have made clear that the future of transportation is electric," the White House stated in a fact sheet.

History may someday record today as the beginning of the end of the internal combustion engine – and of individual liberty in the U.S. According to news reports, the EPA is scheduled to release proposed auto emissions standards today on new car sales so stringent that the only way for automakers to meet them would be to shift two-thirds of their fleet to electric. But wait. How can a regulatory agency do that? Consumers aren’t demanding electric cars. Lawmakers didn’t vote to force them on the public. The Environmental Protection Agency knows better, though, and, unless it’s neutered, plans to force EVs on you – for your own good.

The campaign. Not Nikki Haley. That’s the message. For the campaign to claim that Nikki stays above the fray, the campaign sent out a memo full of snark and vinegar. Haley’s campaign manager Betsy Ankney wrote the memo. Mostly she ripped into Trump’s “drama” but she made sure to include her opinion on Governor DeSantis, too. She did not, however, mention Governor Asa Hutchinson or Vivek Ramaswamy by name who have officially entered the GOP primary race. Governor DeSantis has not officially entered the race but that isn’t stopping the others from jumping ugly on him. Everyone expects him to take the leap when the Florida Legislature completes its session.

Joe Biden played up his English roots today as he tried to counter claims he is 'anti-British' during a visit to Belfast. The US president used a speech at Ulster University, marking the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, to deflect criticism over his 'partisan' pro-Irish stance. In a rambling anecdote, he described how a former US ambassador to the UK had discovered that one of his ancestors wrote the rules of mutiny for the British navy in the 1800s.

"These stores lose tens of millions of dollars a year, and their annual losses nearly doubled in just the last five years," the company said. "The remaining four Chicago stores continue to face the same business difficulties, but we think this decision gives us the best chance to help keep them open

Connor Sturgeon, 25, was seen entering the bank on East Main Street in Louisville at 8.33am on Monday armed with a legally-purchased AR-15 before opening fire and killing five senior executives and injuring eight other people.

Joe Biden’s EPA Administrator Michael Regan on Wednesday announced new tailpipe emission standards in an effort to restrict gas-powered vehicles. Under this plan, Americans will likely be forced to buy electric vehicles, which is exactly what Biden wants.

Currently, only 5.8% of vehicles sold in the US are electric, CNBC reported.“That’s why today, I’m pleased to announce, the strongest ever federal pollution technology standards for both cars and trucks.

Americans are fleeing blue states, and especially blue cities, in historic numbers. Can things possibly get worse? They can, indeed they can. Take San Francisco. Things are so bad there that Whole Foods, an iconic liberal company, has shut its flagship store in that city after just one year of operation, due to rampant crime and drug use that, the company said, made it impossible to assure the safety of its employees. But when it comes to commercial real estate, San Francisco, while very bad, is not the bottom of the barrel. John Phelan reports on a series of corporate departures from Minneapolis and St. Paul. The numbers are grim.
