Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court got a boost from two Democrats who testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, as deep partisan entrenchment emerged during Monday’s hearings. Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, an Obama-appointee, appeared before the committee to praise Gorsuch’s record. Katyal urged Democrats to support the nomination, while Bennet was more circumspect. Bennet is under intense pressure from Colorado’s legal establishment to vote for his fellow home-stater. Though he stopped short of announcing his support for Gorsuch, he did reiterate his support for a full hearing and
We watched as the liberal Democrat Senators gave their opening statements at the confirmation hearing. No doubt the country is seriously split in two politically, as the Democrat Senators appeared to be from Mars as far as the very liberal political agenda they were pushing, clearly favoring judges who would move the liberal Democrat political agenda through the courts instead of following the US Constitution or laws passed by Congress. There is no doubt that none of them would ever be elected if they had run for office in flyover country or the States that voted for President Trump.
I actually only watched one person´s prepared statement. To all you dRATS sycophants, millennial snowflakes, unemployed, feminist, hippies, druggies, BLM domestic terrorist, etc., you deserved to suffer her before your trip to Perdition.
As I listened to Dianne Feinstein´s direct assault at not just Judge Neil Gorsuch´s nomination, but President Trump, all she said for the whole time is the same dRATS litany of grievances used for every conservative candidate (and election babble) in my lifetime. That means, besides having put the millstone of abortion around her own scrawny neck and the lemmings that follow her, NONE of these problems have ever been properly addressed by Congress in all this time to be resolved. (I´m talking more than one generation, easily).
Even more remarkable was the total "fake news" summations of any of those "injustices" coming out of her mouth. She blames the rich which her and her husband are totally a member of in Kalifornia. There is no doubt left to the knowledgeable that she and her cohorts want an activists and not a constitutionalist"choice that Neil Gorsuch is. To attempt to belittle a great jurist before her brings shame to the current selection process for letting it happen.
This is not the one they are going to die on the hill for. It´s when they have to replace Bryer, Ginsburg or Kennedy that will result in the blood spilling. Unfortunately for them, the nuclear option WILL be used.
The influence of George Soros and his Open Society Foundations on U.S. foreign policy is the subject of an alert issued by members of the Senate. Six senators recently sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, asking him to investigate the numerous grants given over many years by the State Department and its subsidiary, the U.S. Agency for International Development, to groups funded by the left-wing billionaire. The Soros Open Society Foundations stands accused of fomenting trouble for the governments of some U.S. allies and even interfering in their electoral process. The specific concern raised by Sens.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had a heated exchange with reporter April Ryan over alleged White House scandals. Following is a transcript of the video. April Ryan: With all of these investigations, questions of what is, is? How does this administration try to revamp its image two and a half months in?

President Trump wants to upgrade the nation´s infrastructure, and much of that desire comes from his hatred of the nation´s airports. Trump in a presidential debate compared the nation´s airports to what he would expect to find in a "third-world country." As a frequent flyer on his own personal jet, the subject of airports is something very close to the president´s heart. Here are the 10 worst large airports in the United States based on customer satisfaction, according to a year-end study by J.D. Power and Associates, in descending order of quality. 10.

WASHINGTON -Labor unions representing construction workers have sent an infrastructure priority list to President Donald Trump at his request, as his White House searches for projects to greenlight that require little if any federal funding. North America’s Building Trades Unions sent the White House the wish list of 26 projects, including more than $80 billion worth of energy transmission lines, water and wind projects, and pipelines across the country. More than half of the projects on the list given to Trump aide Stephen Miller are privately financed. All but one are in the midst of permitting and could use the
A New York architecture firm has unveiled designs for a skyscraper that is out of this world. Deemed the ‘world’s tallest building ever’, Analemma Tower will be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth– and the only way to leave is by parachute. The orbital path would swing the tower in a figure eight pattern between the northern and southern hemispheres each day, taking residents on a tour through different parts of the world - all in just a 24 hour orbital cycle. (Photo) The radical design was created by Clouds Architecture Office, which is
Remember when Obama and Hillary cozied up to Putin? And recall when the media rejoiced at surveillance leaks about Team Trump? The American Left used to lecture the nation about its supposedly paranoid suspicions of Russia. The World War II alliance with Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union had led many leftists to envision a continuing post-war friendship with Russia. During the subsequent Cold War, American liberals felt that the Right had unnecessarily become paranoid about Soviet Russia, logically culminating in the career of the demagogic Senator Joe McCarthy. Later, in movies such as Seven Days in May, Doctor Strangelove, and The
A Kentucky lawyer involved in a half-a-billion-dollar Social Security disability fraud scheme has pleaded guilty. Eric C. Conn, a flashy lawyer in the mold of the Breaking Bad character Saul Goodman, worked with an administrative judge and doctors to approve sham disability claims. The scheme resulted in fraudulent claims that cost the government $550 million, with Conn himself earning over $5.7 million. The Department of Justice announced Conn pleaded guilty to one count of theft of government money and one count of payment of gratuities on Friday. "According to the plea, from October 2004 to April 6, 2016, Conn participated
WASHINGTON– A Massachusetts law enforcement official testifying before Congress on Tuesday called for leaders of sanctuary cities to be arrested. Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.” (Photo) “If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law
President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday evening and asked why aren’t congressional lawmakers probing the various deals, transactions, and connections former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have to Russia. “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech,” read Trump’s first tweet, which was followed by, “…money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!” Clinton Camp Met with Russian Ambassador -(Video/Tweets) Trump’s assertion that then-Secretary

Lt. General Thomas McInerney appeared on Fox News to discuss Obamagate and the attacks on Devin Nunes who recently came out confirming that Trump was surveilled between Election Day and Inauguration Day. Lt. McInerney said that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are both in violation of the Espionage Act. It’s time for a special prosecutor to go after these two and others involved in their criminal activity. (Photo) McInerney: “Fingerprints that are now gonna start coming out that will show that the Obama administration was heavily listening to what was going on in the Trump campaign. They (Democrats) do not
The White House was placed on lockdown Tuesday morning after a man reportedly said he had a bomb while the president was at home. Reporters were locked into the White House press room and the North Lawn was cleared so snipers could search the area. The Secret Service confirmed just before 11am that they are investigating a suspicious package near the White House grounds. Trey Yingst, a reporter for One America News Network, said a Secret Service agent told him that the cause of the lockdown was a man who approached the White House and claimed to have a bomb. The
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members. He later
With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday he’ll begin punishing sanctuary cities, withholding potentially billions of dollars in federal money — and even clawing back funds that had been doled out in the past. Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said. He said he’s carrying out a policy laid out by the Obama administration last year,
Mental genius Chelsea Clinton made a complete a** of herself once again this past weekend. Someone really needs to keep her away from the computers without supervision. Via Newsbusters— The Republican Party of Palm Beach County put President Lincoln in a #MAGA hat this year for its Lincoln Day Dinner. (Snip) An alarmed Chelsea Clinton, a graduate of Oxford University, asked her followers if the image was photoshopped! What a dunce. The responses to Chelsea’s tweets were EPIC! “No, this is the exact hat Lincoln was wearing when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation. People forget that.” “Nope, Lincoln was wearing that exact hat at the Theater.” “Nope,
Barack Obama’s former press secretary is now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, the network announced Monday. “Josh recently completed a ten-year run with President Obama, most recently serving as White House Press Secretary from 2014-2017,” NBC New President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin said in a joint statement. “A native of Kansas City, Josh graduated from Rice University with a degree in political science and policy studies. With his wealth of experience and insight, Josh will be a great addition to our roster of contributors and will be an asset for our two networks as
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma - Three teenagers were killed Monday, shot by a man as they were breaking into his home. Officers say it happened at a home near 91st and Clearview Drive in Wagoner County. The Wagoner County Sheriff´s Office said the homeowner and his adult son were in the home when three males wearing masks and gloves tried to break in at about 12:30 p.m. The homeowner´s son shot the intruders with a rifle, deputies said, killing all three. (Snip) Deputies said the resident armed himself with an AR-15 rifle and walked toward the back door where he encountered
New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates
Less than a week after the failed attempt to repeal Obamacare, President Trump will sign an executive order that could spell the end of Obama-era environmental policy. The order will curb the enforcement of a number of climate regulations, in an effort, the Trump administration says, to prioritize American jobs above addressing climate change. According to Mark Lynas, a British author, journalist and environmental activist who focuses on climate change, the order "is intended to make coal competitive again in the US economy, by refossilizing the US power sector and demonstrably increasing carbon emissions." "This is politically symbolic, as it will show that
As they investigate the forces behind the party’s stunning losses in November, Democrats are coming to a troubling conclusion. The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states. Determining what exactly happened is one of the most pressing problems facing
On the same day that the House of Representatives canceled its vote on Ryancare, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks filed a simple one-line bill to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. The Huntsville Republican titled the bill ‘Obamacare Repeal Act.” It is short and to the point, AI.com reported. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill reads. Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told constituents last week that he
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s path to 60 votes is rapidly closing — setting the stage for a nuclear showdown in the Senate as soon as next week. Senior Democratic sources are now increasingly confident that Gorsuch can’t clear a filibuster, saying his ceiling is likely mid- to upper-50s on the key procedural vote. That would mark the first successful filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee since Abe Fortas for chief justice in the 1960s. In the latest ominous sign for the federal judge from Colorado, Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said Monday he’ll oppose Gorsuch on the cloture vote, which is expected
