I didn’t know that was going to happen,” Trump said to laughter in the crowd....

  • This Sure Looks Like Mitt Romney’s Secret Twitter Account (Update: It Is)

    Earlier today, the Atlantic’s McKay Coppins published a lengthy profile on Mitt Romney, apparently part of Romney’s effort to set himself up as the noble Republican foil to an out-of-control president. These sorts of pieces, which are more about narrative setting than anything else, typically don’t contain a lot of new information, but this had one notable exception. About midway through, the usually guarded senator revealed that, just like fellow lone-voice-of reason-haver James Comey, he was the owner of a secret Twitter account. At one point, as Coppins asked him about the #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY hashtag Trump tweeted into being earlier this...

    Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has approved some of the strictest gun laws and gun seizure powers in the U.S. Friday, signing into law 15 different pieces of gun legislation. Newsom has reinforced a “red flag” law that enables educators, employers and co-workers to inform on gun owners and request that a restraining order be placed on them — if they are believed to be a danger to themselves or society, according to the Associated Press. The bill was deemed to be to extreme even for Newsom’s predecessor, former Gov. Jerry Brown, who was also an enthusiastic advocate of gun...

    LOS ANGELES, October 11, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) -- Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, a Catholic and presidential candidate for the Democratic party, called for churches and religious institutions to lose their tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex “marriage.” Joining other Democratic candidates in defending their respective LGBTQ platform stances on Thursday evening during a CNN televised town hall, O’Rourke said, “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone … that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.” As the audience cheered, O’Rourke continued, saying, “And so as president, we are...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has achieved a presidential fundraising record by bringing in $125 million in the third quarter of the year, along with the Republican National Committee. The RNC said Tuesday that it raised more than $308 million in 2019 with $156 million in the bank. Obviously these funds will be used to fight Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment push. Trump is Breaking Records and Blew Obama’s Fundraising Out of the Water To compare, former President Barack Obama raised just over $70 million at this same juncture of his re-election in 2011. HUGE Q3 fundraising numbers thanks to @GOPChairwoman, @parscale,...

    'Impeachment is not good enough for Trump' Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) expressed her desire to throw President Donald Trump in solitary confinement despite her previous opposition to the practice. Waters suggested that Trump should be tried and executed for treason or at the very least placed in solitary confinement after Tump characterized the Ukraine phone call whistleblower as "close to a spy." "Impeachment is not good enough for Trump," the often-outspoken congresswoman argued on Twitter. "He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative." Despite her enthusiasm for putting Trump in...

I’m not sure whether it’s a medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on the campus.” The comment comes after months of...

    Bright pink seesaws were placed between the U.S.-Mexico border wall in New Mexico Monday so that children from Mexico and the U.S. could play with each other. Two California professors, Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello, came up with the idea to develop a “Teetertotter Wall” between the border in 2009, according to Rael’s Instagram. The idea was meant to allow people to interact despite being separated by a wall. Rael shared the installation on Instagram Monday, stating that “the wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. – Mexico relations.” The “Teetertotter Wall” is located between Sunland Park, New Mexico...

    Children on either side of the US-Mexico border played together despite a fence dividing them — thanks to three pink seesaws erected by a pair of California professors. The teeter-totters on the outskirts of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico are the handiwork of Ronald Rael, an architecture professor at the University of California, Berkley, and Virginia San Fratello, an associate design professor at San José State University, The Guardian reported. “One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled...

    Billionaire investor Peter Thiel said Sunday that the FBI and the CIA should investigate if Google has been infiltrated by Chinese intelligence, according to a report from Axios. Thiel blasted the Alphabet-owned Google for its work in China, saying the search engine giant was "engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military," according to Axios. Last year, Google came under fire after it was revealed that the company was working on a controversial project to launch a censored search service in China. Billionaire investor Peter Thiel said Sunday that the...
