    The settled science informs us that the more often you flip a coin, the more likely it is that there will be a 50/50 split of heads to tails. In other words, if you flip a coin 20 times, the probability of achieving a ratio of 8 heads and 12 tails diminishes greatly if you flip it 40 or 60 times. The closer you get to 100 coin flips, the closer you will get to a perfect 50/50 split of heads to tails. Naturally, in order to achieve this perfect split, in order to conduct the experiment accurately, good faith...

    FULL TITLE: Report: Soros and Schumer-Backed Organizations Are the ‘Dark Money’ Behind Alabama Shell Group Attacking Roy Moore Politico reported on Monday that the George Soros-funded Priorities USA Action and Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) Senate Majority PAC are the dark money behind the Alabama shell group that has spent more than $4.1 million to defeat conservative Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday’s Alabama U.S. Senate special election in which he faces liberal Democrat Doug Jones: Highway 31, which has dropped more than $4.1 million in support of Jones and against Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s Senate special election, is a joint...

    President Donald Trump responded to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s call for his resignation, calling her a “lightweight” and a “total flunky” for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” Trump wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!” Sen. Gillibrand called for Trump’s resignation after three women again detailed sexual harassment accusations that they voiced during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump denounced their accusations...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) leaving the U.S. Senate should “establish a national standard” on how the Senate deals with Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore if he wins. Partial transcript as follows: DICKERSON: Joining us now is Senate Democratic Whip Richard Durbin. He is in Springfield, Illinois. Welcome, senator. I want to pick up on something that Senator Collins said about the choice that senators may face if Roy Moore is elected in Alabama. And the question is: What business does the Senate have in overturning the will of...

    CNN has had a rough 2017 and it’s not even over yet. The news network has repeatedly made key errors when breaking big stories, only to get embarrassed when the facts come to light. Here are seven times CNN botched the news in 2017. Comey Testimony CNN ran a story on June 6 that claimed former FBI Director James Comey would use his testimony the next day to refute President Donald Trump’s claim that Comey had assured him three separate times that he was not under FBI investigation. That story was debunked the same day when Comey’s prepared remarks were...

    During the December 4 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson asked gun control proponent Mark Glaze if he was ready for the civil war that would follow any real attempt to confiscate firearms in the U.S. Glaze is the former head of Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety. Carlson’s comments came after Glaze bounced from one gun control idea to another, grasping to find one he could justify. His ideas ranged from background checks–which we already have–to all-out bans on certain categories of firearms. Carlson seized on the push to ban certain firearms and said, “You’re saying ban a class...

    While much of the country’s attention was focused on the astonishing acquittal of Kate Steinle’s killer in San Francisco, another illegal immigrant accused of horrendous crimes was being held accountable for them farther up the coast in Portland, Oregon. According to the New York Post, a Mexican national with a criminal record and series of prior deportations and re-entries named Sergio Jose Martinez was sentenced to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple counts including assault, burglary, kidnapping, sexual abuse, sodomy, and rape. He remained incredibly defiant and showed no remorse while receiving his sentence. During the sentencing...

    President Donald Trump’s base of supporters wants the federal government to shut down unless a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is constructed as promised. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll shows that roughly 43 percent of Republican voters say they would like to see the GOP-led Congress stand firm on the border wall by shutting down the government unless the project is fully funded so that it can be quickly constructed. Americans were promised at Trump’s swearing-in that a border wall would be constructed on the southern border to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking by a number of Mexican cartels....

    TITLE SHOULD BE: DEMS READY TO SHUT DOWN US GOVT UNLESS DREAMERS ARE LEGALIZED. The threat of a government shutdown has put Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a tricky political situation. Schumer has kept his caucus unified against President Trump’s major legislative drives on ObamaCare and tax reform, but he faces a more divided group of Democrats when it comes to protecting young immigrants who could face deportation next year. The internal debate has more to do with legislative strategy than the underlining issue. Democrats generally back a legislative fix that would allow so-called Dreamers brought to the...

    On December 4 Breitbart News reported that House Leadership plans to add gun control legislation to Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity bill when it comes to the floor for a vote. Breitbart News has since learned that the legislation being eyed by House Leadership is similar to background check legislation that was pushed while Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was Speaker of the House. That push, which ultimately passed and was signed by George W. Bush, consisted of “improving” the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) but was subsequently parlayed into expanding the number and types of persons listed...

    President Donald Trump has been systematically dismantling the Obama administration’s legacy ever since he took office, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Most recently, the Department of Agriculture finally announced that it would be rolling back some of former first lady Michelle Obama’s restrictions on what can be served in public school lunches, ABC News reported. Effective July 1, after a period for public comment, schools will again be allowed to serve chocolate milk to students thanks to the lifting of some restrictions. The USDA announced that it is also easing restrictions on sodium content, and allowing milk...

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, local leaders denounced Trump’s position. State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) said, “People have...

    The Pentagon’s Inspector General has launched a preliminary investigation into charges that James H. Baker, the director of the Defense Department’s Office of Net Assessment (ONA), is retaliating against a whistleblower who warned of “rigged” contracts to outside consultants, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed. TheDCNF verified through two independent sources that the acting IG, Glenn A. Fine, initiated a formal “Whistleblower Reprisal Investigation” Sept. 28 to look into allegations that Baker unleashed various reprisals against Adam Lovinger, a senior ONA official. Lovinger warned about potential sweetheart deals to politically-connected outside contractors, including one with a woman Chelsea Clinton...

    FULL TITLE - We Got a Vast, Unaccountable, Unconstitutional Agency Because Elizabeth Warren Compared Mortgages to Toasters. And we're the stupid ones Sixteen hundred bureaucrats with the power to charge billions in fines, with a $600 million budget outside of the congressional appropriations process, and all because Elizabeth Warren compared mortgages to toasters. "Of all the ideas that get published in … journals like that, not so many make it into law," Warren boasted in 2011, at the launch of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She was referring to her essay "Unsafe At Any Rate," published by the "lefty" Democracy...

    Pelosi has called impeachment talks 'distraction' in private The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is highlighting the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump as a way to rake in money for the organization even as top Democrats try to quiet such talk from official party organs. The DLCC, which focuses on electing Democrats at the state level, sent out a fundraising pitch Sunday night claiming that a recent poll, which is not named within the email, shows half of Americans would support impeaching Trump. "According to a recent poll, nearly 50 percent of Americans already support impeaching President Trump," the...

    Democrat Doug Jones was asked in an interview if he could reassure voters that he did not want to take their guns but spoke to other topics without ever answering the question. Politico was contrasting the difference in Republican Roy Moore voters versus Jones voters, and how one of the dividing issues is the Second Amendment. In addressing the difficulty of overcoming Moore’s appeal to pro-gun voters, Politico asked, “How can you reassure [Moore] supporters that you are not out to take away their religious freedom or their guns, their culture?” Jones responded by seizing on the word “culture,” saying,...

    WASHINGTON — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged “due process” before making conclusions about Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., following accusations of sexual harassment, saying the 27-term Congressman is “an icon” who has worked to protect women. “We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused - and was it one accusation? Is it two?” Pelosi said on “Meet The Press.” “John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women - Violence Against Women Act, which the left - right-wing - is now quoting me as praising him for...

    Washington Post reporter Janelle Ross sat on a panel at a secret gathering of Democrats where she offered strategic advice, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon. Left-wing billionaire George Soros was also in attendance. Ross presents herself and is presented by the Post as an objective journalist. She primarily covers politics and race, and much of her focus is on the Trump administration. Nevertheless, Ross’s Twitter feed is that of a left-wing activist, and back in 2015, with no evidence, Ross smeared then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush in such a sleazy way, even MSNBC felt the need to...

    The Senate’s homeland defense budget committee voted to fund President Donald Trump’s $1.6 billion request to build or upgrade 74 miles of border wall but rejected his request for extra funding to repatriate or block more illegal migrants. The House has already approved the $1.6 billion in border-wall funding, so the Democrats’ next best chance to stop the funding is a vote on the Senate floor. The wall funding is just 3 percent of the over $51.6 billion bill, which funds all aspects of homeland spending in 2018. The committee refused to add funding for 850 extra repatriation officers or...

    Conservatives are calling for Republicans in Congress to fulfill their campaign promises by supporting President Donald Trump’s spending proposal and to not enact amnesty in a year-end deal with Democrats. A letter released Monday and signed by 44 conservative leaders explains that Virginia is “in ruins” after Republican losses at both the statewide and local level earlier this month. The leaders warn that the Republican majority in the House could be in jeopardy next. “Your consultants and managers are out of excuses—and your conservative grassroots are running out of both patience and time,” the letter states. “So stop panicking and...
