  • New Movie Claims Google Handed the Popular Vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016

    When Donald Trump surprised the world by winning the 2016 election, liberals clung to the idea that his victory was illegitimate because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. According to a psychologist who supported Clinton in 2016, however, Google's bias in Clinton's favor may remove even that symbolic victory from her. Almost all of Clinton's popular vote margin could be attributed to Google bias, making her win "negligible." Dr. Robert Epstein, a psychologist who earned his Ph.D. at Harvard, actually reported this finding last year, but he explains how it works in the upcoming film "The Creepy Line." Epstein made...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota state Rep. Jim Knoblach abruptly ended his re-election campaign Friday amid allegations of inappropriate touching from his adult daughter. Minnesota Public Radio reported the announcement came hours after the St. Cloud Republican’s attorney, Susan Gaertner, denied the allegations in an interview with the station. She said the veteran lawmaker “does not want to drag his family through six weeks of hell.”

    Alex's largest donation this cycle was for $2 million to the Senate Majority PAC (SMP), a committee launched by former staffers of retired Nevada senator Harry Reid that is dedicated to electing and keeping Democrats in the Senate. SMP reports nearly $80 million in contributions this cycle, and Alex's $2 million donation makes him one of the top donors to the PAC, its filings show. The group has already dished out more than $30 million in independent expenditures this cycle backing Democrats. Alex added $33,900 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's coffers. Another $101,700 was given to the committee's headquarters...

    Fearing for the future, his siblings have thrown their weight behind their choice of candidate in a powerful new TV advert. The striking part? It's not their brother. Nope - six of Mr Gosar's siblings have spoken out to endorse his rival, Democrat David Brill. If that sounds brutal on paper, the execution is even more savage. To maximise its impact, the ad doesn't name the six speakers until the end - they're just presented as normal Arizona folks.

    Republicans on Sunday seized on reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year proposed secretly recording President Trump, in order to renew calls for a special counsel investigation of alleged bias within the Department of Justice (DOJ). “[Trump] shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein’s lying. He said he did not do the things alleged, but there’s a bureaucratic coup against President Trump being discovered here,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Before the election, the people in question tried to taint the election, tip it in [Hillary] Clinton’s favor; after the election they’re trying to...

    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    DFL candidate Keith Ellison continued to deny allegations of domestic abuse Friday night, at times fending off questions from both moderators and opponent Doug Wardlow during the first post-primary debate for Minnesota attorney general hosted by TPT’s “Almanac” public affairs show. Ellison, a six-term member of the U.S. House from Minneapolis, has been accused by former girlfriend Karen Monahan of domestic abuse. She has said he dragged her off a bed by her feet during a fight before they separated in 2016 and alleges years of emotional abuse. During the “Almanac” debate, Ellison said “it simply isn’t true.” **SNIP** Will...

    BOWLING GREEN—Recently uncovered Facebook posts by Aidan Hubbell-Staeble, the Democrat candidate for Ohio’s 3rd House District, reveal that he has described police officers as “murderers,” “monsters” and even as a “death squad.” He also shared a Facebook post earlier this year that alluded to law enforcement as being racist. Hubbell-Staeble’s comments, posted over the past three years, appear to have been deleted from his personal Facebook account shortly after being nominated for the 3rd District seat by the Wood County Democratic Party. The 3rd District covers all of Wood County. “Our police officers are heroes who deserve respect, but Aidan...

    I watched the first scheduled debate between Senator Ted Cruz and his challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rourke Friday night. Held on the SMU campus in Dallas, the two moderators were Julie Fine of NBC-5 and Gromer Jeffers of the Dallas Morning News. Both NBC-5 and the Dallas Morning News were sponsors.I’ll get right to the most interesting point I heard. When Beto O’Rourke was asked if he did, in fact, flee the scene of the accident that occurred during his drunk driving accident, he said, no, he did not try to leave the scene of the accident. That answer, though,...

    First lady Melania Trump has apparently had enough. In a fundraising memo to GOP supporters, the soft spoken Trump has ripped the media and Democrats for lying about her husband and his supporters. “Democrats and the opposition media are doing everything they possibly can to discredit Donald with false accusations by spreading their fake news and making it appear that he does not have the support of America’s voters,” she penned....

    WASHINGTON — The deputy attorney general, Rod J.

    If you like what you’ve seen Democrats do in the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, you’re going to love what they do if they win the 2018 midterm elections. They began by trying to prevent the hearings from taking place at all, interrupting repeatedly and demanding votes on frivolous points of order. Then they praised the left-wing radical “protesters” who disrupted proceedings. Then they broke the rules and released confidential information. Now, they want Kavanaugh to face a Kafkaesque show trial. The Democrats are doing their worst because a Supreme Court seat is at stake, and their base will accept nothing less....
  • What makes Cory Booker's groping incident different than the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

    As Washington continues to play a game of wait and see on whether Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will testify in Washington next week, an old-but-new-again incident involving a prominent Democratic senator -- and potential 2020 challenger to Trump -- has reemerged. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker wrote in the early 1990s -- while a student at Stanford -- about an incident on New Year's Eve 1984 (when he was 15) in which he groped a female friend's breast after the two of them had kissed. "With the 'Top Gun' slogan...

    The first people to vote in this year’s midterm elections have already returned their ballots to state elections officials in North Carolina, seven weeks before much of the rest of the country gets to weigh in. Those voters — 181 of whom have voted so far, according to the state Board of Elections — are part of an increasing number of Americans who cast their ballots before Election Day. This year, more than 40 percent of all voters are likely to take advantage of mail-in, absentee or early voting options. “There’s been this revolution in the use of mailed-out ballots...

    Charles Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, seem determined to call a vote next week on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court, even in the face of this week’s sexual assault allegations against him. Senate Republicans assume, correctly, that if they can hold the party line, his installation on the Supreme Court is a sure thing. This is certainly true — even if the Democratic caucus in the Senate holds firm against Mr. Kavanaugh, they simply lack the votes to block him....

    If Senate Democrats sweep into power in November, they will likely probe the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a Democrat in the chamber. "I am confident of that, and I think we'll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Thursday during a interview with CNN. He also acknowledged that such an effort would happen even if Kavanaugh has already been appointed to the court.

    Photos posted online from Las Vegas show a massive turnout for President’s Trump’s campaign rally being held Thursday night at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The half-mile-plus lines in the 95 degree heat are reminiscent of the huge crowds that turned out in 2015-2016 for Trump’s presidential campaign rallies. The Washington Post’s Ashley Parker reported on the enthusiasm of the Trump supporters, “Some brief anecdotal scene from the Trump rally here in Las Vegas: One woman drove in from San Diego. Another drove 16 hours from Elk City, Idaho. A man and his son flew down from Washington State. And...
