High stakes as 2-month sprint
to Election Day begins

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

WASHINGTON — Control of Congress and the future of Donald Trump’s presidency are on the line as the primary season closes this week, jump-starting a two-month sprint to Election Day that will test Democrats’ ability to harness opposition to Trump and determine whether the Republican president can get his supporters to the polls. For both parties, the stakes are exceedingly high. After crushing defeats in 2016, Democrats open the fall campaign brimming with confidence about their prospects for retaking the House, which would give them power to open a wide swath of investigations into Trump or even launch impeachment

Julie is drooling at the prospect of a blue wave. Real Americans need to keep Congress out of the hands of the Democrats. If you think it is ugly now...

Since the 2016 election they lost, Democrats have done nothing, achieved nothing constructive. In fact have opposed tooth and nail everything that has given us this roaring economy. What is this optimism based on? Remember 21 out of 23 polls favored Hillary. RCP averages are garbage. Keep your fingers crossed.

Of just as much concern are the RINOs who have helped the democrats hold back some of Trump´s progress. One is dead but there are others out there. We need SOLID majorities.

If the democrats are able to re-capture, by hook or crook, the Legislative Branch, it would be most helpful if the Democrats are made to understand that if they impeach the president based on their coup machinations, they will never be able to govern this country in the aftermath. It would be even better if that were a 100% true statement of the will and resolve of the normal American majority who elected Trump against all odds. Hopefully, we won´t have to find out the answer

Embarrassment for 2020 Democrats after
Jussie Smollett attack story unravels
Washington Examiner, by Dominick Mastrangelo    Original Article

Democratic presidential candidates jockeying for position in 2020 had a lot to say when actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked in Chicago by two white men who shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him. But they were silent on Saturday, when law enforcement sources said that Chicago Police believed "Empire" star Smollett, 36, who is gay, paid two black men to set up the assault. Police arrested the men, who are brothers from Nigeria, on Wednesday but released them Friday after discovering "new evidence." A Chicago police spokesman said: "We can confirm that the information received from

Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) said on Friday evening in Wisconsin that “hatred” and “racism” have defined Donald Trump’s presidency. Speaking to political science students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, O’Rourke told the Badgers that President Trump came to the border in El Paso, Texas, this week to “stoke the anxiety and the paranoia and the fear and the hatred and the racism that has defined his campaigns and his presidency.” O’Rourke, who headlined an anti-wall rally across the street from Trump, added that protesters, knowing that the “eyes of the nation” were on them, met what Trump

What media bias? Female ‘journalists’ went shopping in South Carolina on Lady Street with 2020 Democrat darling Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Saturday and even helped her pick out a sequin jacket to buy. CNN reporter Maeve Reston posted a video of Kamala Harris trying on the sequin jacket and bragged that fellow NBC reporter Ali Vitali named it the “Mardi Gras Jacket.” Maeve Reston: We kind of forced @kamalaharris to try on this awesome oversized rainbow sequin jacket … She snapped it up. @alivitali perfectly named it as “the Mardi Gras Jacket” #2020 (Video/Tweet) NBC reporter Ali Vitali posted pictures

President Donald Trump has been spotted returning from the links in Florida, flashing a thumbs-up for his supporters after presumably spending a relaxing day playing golf. Trump´s motorcade rolled from Mar-a-Lago to the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach at 8.30am on Saturday, a sunny day where temperatures reached 82 degrees. As reporters were held at a nearby library, Trump spent more than six hours at the club before departing at 2.56pm. Trump seemed in high spirits as he departed the club, flashing a double thumbs-up for his supporters gathered by the roadside. (Video/Photos) Wearing a red hat

What to Do About the

"The most important political event of the twentieth century," wrote Irving Kristol in 1976, "is not the crisis of capitalism but the death of socialism." Plenty of self-described Marxist and socialist regimes existed throughout the world, Kristol recognized. It was rather the ideas behind such regimes that had reached a moral and intellectual endpoint. Nor was this passing away entirely to be cheered. "For with the passing of the socialist ideal," Kristol went on, "there is removed from the political horizon the one alternative to capitalism that was rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition and in the Western civilization which emerged

Patrick Caddell, the political pollster who helped send an obscure peanut farmer named Jimmy Carter to the White House, later became disillusioned with fellow Democrats and finally veered to advise supporters of Donald J. Trump, died on Saturday in Charleston, S.C. He was 68. His death, from complications of a stroke, was confirmed by a colleague, Prof. Kendra Stewart of the College of Charleston. While Mr. Caddell was considered instrumental in Mr. Carter’s victory, he also shared the blame for limiting him to a single term. He helped persuade the president to deliver a speech that was intended to inspirit

The Lone Cypress clinging to a granite promontory above the surf on California’s Monterey Peninsula has survived arsonists’ fires, vandal’s paint, drought and relentless winds along the famously scenic 17-Mile Drive edging the Pebble Beach Resorts. But on Thursday, the most photographed tree in North America was lashed by a brutal Pacific storm that knocked off one of its largest branches, significantly altering the appearance of the tree that has been a marketing tool and a registered trademark of the Pebble Beach Co. since 1919. Until now, the tree, believed to be more than 250 years old, had posed for

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pressing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for answers about his interactions with Glenn Simpson, the founder of the opposition research firm behind the Democrat-funded Steele dossier. In a statement released on Friday, McCarthy questioned whether Schiff, a California Democrat, should recuse himself from the Intelligence panel’s Russia investigation because of a meeting he had with Simpson at the Aspen Security Forum in July 2018. “Given Chairman Schiff’s previous underlying rationale when calling for others to recuse themselves from Russia-related investigations, in order to avoid charges of hypocrisy or perceived bias, should Chairman Schiff

President Trump posted a new State of the Union video clip by @CarpeDonktum on Saturday that replaces the one taken down from his account by Twitter on Friday following a complaint from R.E.M. about excerpts of their 1992 hit song “Everybody Hurts” being used in the video created by the Trump supporting satirist. Bassist Mike Mills called Trump “#PresidentA**hole” in his complaint to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The band’s official account also chimed in with a call for Congress and the media to “ghost this faker!!!” CNBC reported the video was taken down following a complaint by R.E.M.’s music publisher,

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in her later years, but that’s OK, since plenty of others in the government are older, including President Donald Trump. What’s maybe not OK — and if anything rather concerning to some — is Pelosi’s habit of mispronouncing words, suffering brain freezes and getting the most basic details wrong. Take for instance dates. If you know what day it happens to be, congratulations, because you apparently know more than Pelosi, a woman so confused she got Valentine’s Day mixed up with Thanksgiving. *facepalm* Watch: “Happy Valentine’s Day,” she initially said Thursday after the House passed a

President Trump has been turned down by Democrats for a sensible border barrier, so he will declare a national emergency in accordance with a law Congress passed in 1976. Somehow, following a law Congress passed gets Trump labeled as a dictator. Here is the case for declaring a national emergency: Tens of thousands of people die each year from drug overdoses and a huge percentage of those drugs comes across the porous southern border illegally. Here is one story, headlined: "Deadly blue ´Mexican oxy´ pills take toll on US Southwest": Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky

MUNICH— German Chancellor Angela Merkel robustly defended European nations’ decision to stand by the Iran nuclear deal in a spirited backing Saturday of her multilateral approach to global affairs, but U.S. Vice President Mike Pence promptly accused Europe of once again undermining the United States. Merkel’s comments at the Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering of top global defense and foreign policy officials, followed days of tensions between Washington and Europe over Iran. U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement last year, leaving the others

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department
