    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 19, 2017 | Joe Schoffstall
    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.) paid Hillary Clinton's campaign lawyer $90,000 for crisis control following a Veteran Affairs facility scandal that engulfed the senator and her staff. Baldwin, who was first elected to the Senate in 2012, was the only member of Congress from Wisconsin to receive an official federal government inspector general report warning of the over-prescription of narcotics given to veterans at the Tomah VA facility in her state. The abuses at the facility ultimately led to the death of a Marine.A memo was first circulated in 2009 warning of the dangerous amounts of narcotics prescribed to veterans...

    Alec Baldwin does a pretty convincing Donald Trump impersonation — just ask a newspaper in the Dominican Republic. El Nacional published an apology on Saturday after mistakenly running a photo of the actor doing his impression of the U.S. president on “Saturday Night Live” instead of Trump himself. Accompanying an article in its Friday edition headlined in Spanish: “Trump says settlements in Israel don’t favor peace,” a photo of a scowling Baldwin in a blond wig appears next to a photo of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. …

    That gay marriage is a looming threat to religious liberty as observed here, with the possible loss of tax exemptions for churches and institutions that don’t comply, and may lead to an era of religious persecution not seen in since the days of the Roman Empire, are scene in the chilling redefinition of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty by Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Democrat of Wisconsin, and the Senate’s only lesbian. Baldwin, who is up for reelection in 2018, made her remarks on the June 27, 2015 broadcast of Up With Steve Kornacki on MSNBC. In a transcript of...

    Actor Alec Baldwin has cheekily offered to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration in January as the president-elect reportedly struggles to secure artists for the ceremony. Baldwin, who parodies Mr Trump on Saturday Night Live, tweeted to Mr Trump yesterday with an offer to sing AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell”. The pair have frequently clashed on Twitter over Baldwin’s impersonation of Mr Trump. The president-elect has dismissed the long-running comedy program as “sad” and “totally one-sided” on Twitter. The crew at Saturday Night Live took another dig at Donald Trump, this time having a shirtless Vladimir Putin surprise the President-elect for Christmas....

    Full title:Alec Baldwin Won't Impersonate Donald Trump on 'Saturday Night Live' This Week After Election Victory "I'm trying to shed the Donald Trump cloak.." Baldwin added: "I'm not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there's some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like. Trump is somebody who, I don't hate Trump, but he's not somebody I admire, so it was more difficult." Us Weekly reached out to NBC, which had no comment.

    As part of a new policy to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., Trump announced Tuesday he would push for a constitutional amendment as president to impose term limits on all members of Congress. “Correct me, there already are term limits, so what does he mean?” Baldwin skeptically asked reporter Dana Bash. Indeed, Baldwin had to be corrected. Bash did so politely.

    The actor, starring in the new movie “God’s Club,” shared why he thinks Trump is the best candidate in “The Church Boys” podcast on The Blaze TV this week. “I like Donald Trump because — I said this to Don Lemon on CNN a week before the first Republican national debate — I said, ‘I like Donald Trump as a man, I like Donald Trump potentially as a president, because he doesn’t care what you think,'” Baldwin said. Appearing, and being “fired” twice, on “Celebrity Apprentice” gave Baldwin a personal perspective of the GOP front-runner as someone who does not...

    MADISON, Wisconsin — As the nation celebrates its veterans and pays tribute to their sacrifices, it’s important to remember the promise made to America’s protectors has too often been broken. The headlines over the past few years in particular have screamed of neglect, ill-treatment and other abuses of too many veterans. That broken faith was no more apparent than in Wisconsin, at the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center. While federal lawmakers have conducted a series of investigations into widespread over-prescription of opiates that led to the death of a 35-year-old Marine veteran at the facility and have pledged changes to...

    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) says the 1st Amendment’s religious liberty protections don’t apply to individuals. On MSNBC last week, Wisconsin’s junior Senator claimed that the Constitution’s protection of the free exercise of religion extends only to religious institutions, and that individual’s do not have a right to the free exercise of their own religion. During the MSNBC appearance, which was covered by Breitbart and NewsBusters, Baldwin appeared clueless to the fact that the free exercise clause of the 1st Amendment has already been found to apply to individuals – not just churches, synagogues, mosques or other institutions of faith and...

    CNN's Brooke Baldwin is hoping to return to the good graces of U.S. veterans with an apology after suggesting that some of them are to blame for Baltimore's rioting. The cable news anchor issued a humbling on-air mea culpa Wednesday after making her incriminating statement the day before on live TV but without offering a single scrap of evidence to support such a claim. "A lot of these young people, and I love our nation's veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don't know the communities, and they're ready to do battle," she told Rep. Elijah...

    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate, may have landed herself in some trouble after it was reported her office did little to address the rather high rate of opiate prescriptions coming out of the Veterans Affairs center in Tomah, Wisconsin. As a result, Baldwin's office fired a top aide, offered her a severance package, and a confidentiality agreement. The aide, Marquette Baylor, rejected the deal and is filing a sexual discrimination lawsuit against Baldwin. At the same time, Baldwin's office had the Tomah VA report since last summer. To make matters worse, three...

    CNN boss Jeff Zucker wants to revamp the struggling network, but nobody reportedly wants to work there. A CNN source told the New York Post that the unstable network is having problems recruiting key talent to a place that was once known as "the most trusted name in news." "We can’t find talent who wants to come to CNN. No one wants to come because we scrap things after a year," the source told the Post. "Every talent agency we contact can’t get us anyone... Even talent from larger local markets refuse to come here, because they are afraid.” Daytime...

    Adam Baldwin, an actor best known for his performances in Full Metal Jacket, The Patriot and Firefly, outraged homosexual activists last week by questioning why marriage redefinition should not apply to single fathers who love their sons and want to enjoy all the tax benefits of marriage. “What's wrong, now, with a father marrying his son for love & to avoid tax penalties?” Baldwin wrote on Twitter. The actor has earned a spot on many liberal ‘enemies lists’ by using the micro-blogging site to share his outspokenly conservative opinions on pro-life, family and second amendment issues. Baldwin received an avalanche...

    The lawyer for ex-Penn State president Graham Spanier is raising new questions over what she called contradictions raised by the grand jury testimony of Cynthia Baldwin, the university’s embattled former in-house lawyer. Baldwin approached the state Attorney General’s Office about an “off the record” discussion in exchange for a deal in which the information she provided was not to be used against her, according to documentation released Sunday by Spanier lawyer Elizabeth Ainslie. Baldwin signed the document, called a proffer letter, on Oct. 19, 2012, and a week later she went before a grand jury. In her testimony, Baldwin said...

    Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has no sympathy for one of his biggest fans. Mr. de Blasio today said that actor Alec Baldwin deserved to be fired from his new MSNBC talk show for allegedly using “inappropriate” and “sad” anti-gay slurs–but left the door open for the often hot-headed actor to attend his inauguration. “What he said was inappropriate and very sad,” said Mr. de Blasio, speaking to reporters after visiting a Brooklyn food bank. “I think, you know, he’s someone who is very intelligent and on many issues has said important things. But in this case, what he said was...

    This is a rare moment where I’m disappointed that MSNBC doesn’t have better ratings. If it did, publishers would be scrambling to tell the incredible! true! story! of how the most successful cable news network in America hit ratings paydirt by hiring some of the most insufferable jackholes in media. Olbermann, Baldwin, Bashir — the critics said it was madness to bring together egos as combustible as that, but somehow MSNBC harnessed the energy for a ratings moon shot. It’d be the cable-news equivalent of “The Bronx Zoo,” the inside story of how a championship team gelled through conflict, swagger,...
