U.S. Court of appeals court judges asked a series of probing questions about a federal judge's 'gag' order that would prevent him from 'targeting' potential witnesses in the January 6 case. The judges picked apart Judge Tanya Chutkan's order, which prohibits Trump from targeting court personnel and witnesses, following his repeated attacks on Special Counsel Jack Smith. But they also acknowledged the difficulty of managing the case, asking whether the former president could use social media to in effect tell a witness 'don’t act treasonously – don’t cooperate' as a form of intimidation. Trump's lawyer raised repeated concerns that the order would infringe

Democrats have called Trump a lot of dirty names over the last 7 years. When will they be gagged?

So Hillary can call us deplorables and terrorists and that's okay, but Trump can't say what he wants? Is that how it goes?

Trump should call him a "lying dogfaced pony soldier" the current occupant of the White House seems to be able to get away with it.

Joe Biden had only one event scheduled on Tuesday -- to discuss the "progress" his administration was making in regard to dealing with the massive fentanyl problem. As we reported earlier, part of the fentanyl problem is because Biden has failed to secure the border. He also didn't seem to understand China's involvement in the whole fentanyl process, lifting sanctions on a blacklisted forensics lab in exchange for Xi saying they would do more to track the flow of chemicals for fentanyl. As Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) said, that was a bit like "thanking the arsonist."

The Gateway Pundit’s Richard Abelson reported earlier Israel has reached a deal with Hamas for a temporary cease-fire in return for the release of some of the hostages, Arutz Sheva reports. The deal is expected to go into effect Thursday, with 12 Israelis being freed every day. All the children and 13 moms are said to be involved in the deal. The right-wing parties oppose the deal, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will go ahead and pass it with the votes of the left-wing parties. “A political official presented this evening (Tuesday) the outline for the deal to release dozens of hostages from Hamas captivity and emphasizes that

An air marshal union chief has warned it could be 'unsafe' to fly around Thanksgiving due to a lack of federal agents on flights that have instead been diverted to the US southern border. Travel chaos is already in full swing as storms batter the Plains and Midwest, delaying 3,000 flights ahead of Thursday. The Transportation Security Administration expects to screen a record-breaking 30 million passengers from November 17 through November 28. But to further complicate things, the airline industry may face a shortage of air marshals who are being sent to tackle the migrant crisis at the border.

Republican Celeste Maloy has been projected to win the special election in Utah for the open U.S. House seat recently vacated by Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT). Maloy beat out Utah State Sen. Kathleen Riebe (D) to win the seat. Per the Hill: Maloy and Riebe were vying to fill the House vacancy after Stewart resigned earlier this year, citing concerns for his wife’s health. Maloy previously worked for Stewart’s congressional office as chief legal counsel. The Republican candidate was largely expected to win the seat on Tuesday, given her link to Stewart and the GOP’s success in the state.

A photo was posted on the president's X account featuring his flaming treat that was immediately burned by social media users for its "carbon emissions" and being a "fire hazard" given the amount of candles.

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed a top prosecutor in Special Counsel David Weiss’ Hunter Biden probe on Tuesday. House Judiciary Chairman and Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan sent a letter to Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf Tuesday notifying her that she is required to come before the committee for a deposition Dec. 7, according to the letter. Jordan said the committee was seeking Wolf’s testimony because her “critical role” in the Hunter Biden investigation can help advance the committee’s ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

ATLANTA— The Georgia judge overseeing the election subversion case against former President Donald Trump and others declined a request to revoke the bond of one of the defendants but did impose stricter bond conditions after prosecutors complained about his social media posts that mentioned witnesses and co-defendants. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis made a rare appearance in the courtroom to argue for the revocation of the bond of Harrison Floyd, who was a leader in the organization Black Voices for Trump. Floyd was one of 18 people accused along with the former president of participating in a wide-ranging scheme to illegally try to overturn the 2020 election.

The sentence, that had been whittled down from an original 150 years by Prince George’s County Circuit Judge Karen H. Mason, quickly became an indictment of the convict’s oft-touted mentor.

Joe Biden's one event on Tuesday was a meeting on "progress made to counter the flow of fentanyl into the United States." Most of these meetings/events seem to be thinly designed campaign promotions. The fentanyl problem has only gotten worse under Biden. But listen as Biden tries to tell us how much he's doing. Where are the results? He's also heavily slurring throughout these remarks. (X Video) What we see is the people flowing across the border in record numbers and the cartels getting rich, all because Biden wouldn't properly secure the border.

The relationship between the POTUS and the VPOTUS can be a fickle thing. Sometimes things start out well enough but end badly, as they did with former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence. Other times, things sputter and struggle to even start out well, as with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. And then there’s whatever is going on between former President Barack Obama and Biden, who served as the former’s VP in both presidential terms.

The assessment, which was written by the New York State Intelligence Center, was first reported by CBS News. The report found that due to the increased violence in Israel with the bombardment of Gaza, there has been a rise in 'chatter' about possible terrorism targets in the Big Apple.

But if you’re an American soldier who put everything on the line to defend your country, Uncle Sam would apparently like a thousand bucks for that gear you were told you COULDN’T bring out of Afghanistan. It has seemed fairly obvious, especially since the disastrous withdrawal that left thousands of Americans and allies stranded in the hellhole of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, that the Biden administration hates our military.

A museum is to relabel its display about a Roman emperor after concluding that he was in fact a trans woman. North Hertfordshire Museum will now refer to emperor Elagabalus with the female pronouns of she and her. It comes after classical texts claim the emperor once said "call me not Lord, for I am a Lady". A museum spokesperson said it was "only polite and respectful to be sensitive to identifying pronouns for people in the past". The museum has one coin of Elagabalus, which is often displayed amongst other LGBTQ+items in its collection. It said it consulted LGBTQ+

The agreement is in its “final stages” and a deal is “closer than it has ever been,” a source familiar with the negotiations told the wire service.

Hamas used Gaza City’s Shifa hospital as a base of terror operations. That’s the obvious conclusion following Sunday’s discovery of a large terror tunnel under the hospital along with videos of Hamas bringing Israeli hostages inside. Now comes an important question for Congress: Which US-funded international organizations knew the truth about Shifa and helped Hamas conceal its war crimes? The Israel Defense Forces this weekend discovered a tunnel beneath Shifa hospital that extends 10 meters down and 55 meters across — leading to what might be a booby-trapped door. Special units that specialize in handling explosives have been summoned to break through to the next section.
