    Oh, what a tangled web the unindicted co-conspirators in the Deep State coup to keep Hillary Clinton out of prison and Donald Trump out of the White House have woven. When you tell the truth, the adage goes, you never have to remember anything. But when you lie, you have to remember the lies you told to cover the earlier lies, and you certainly have to keep your story in line with your other co-conspirators. That Andrew McCabe, in his response to his firing, failed miserably on this score, implicating former FBI Director James Comey, is the conclusion of George...

    PITTSBURGH — Republicans will not be conceding anytime soon in a tightly contested special election in Pennsylvania, where Democrat Conor Lamb holds a slim lead over Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone in Tuesday's election. Lamb's campaign and Democratic groups have declared him the winner, as he sits with less than a 700-vote lead. NBC News also projected him the "apparent winner" early Wednesday morning as more absentee ballots trickled in. There are still about 203 absentee ballots and then additional provisional and military ballots left to be counted, but Saccone would have to capture an overwhelming majority of those outstanding...
  • Pennsylvania special election may see recount; Lamb, Saccone separated by razor-thin margin

    It could come down to a recount. Democrat Conor Lamb has already declared victory over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s special House election, but Republicans say they aren’t giving up until every vote is counted. The contest has still not been called, but Lamb leads Saccone by a few hundred votes. There’s no mandatory recount for a federal race in Pennsylvania, but Republicans have the option of petitioning for one. "This race is too close to call and we’re ready to ensure that every legal vote is counted,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said late Tuesday. “Once they...

    When President Trump made his startling comment during bipartisan televised White House gun discussions about taking guns first and due process later, I suspected he was doing the same thing he had done during similar immigration discussions a few weeks earlier. He likes to toss out ideas and let them be debated. He heartens his opponents, and because they are so emotionally driven, they overreach, and he comes across looking reasonable while they look extreme. His proposal for a deal, when it comes, seems reasonable to the public. This is "unpresidential" behavior because in the previously existing culture of politics,...

    The Washington Times ^ | Thursday, January 25, 2018 | S.A. Miller and Stephen Dinan -
    Generous legalization is trade for wall, more deportations President Trump will propose a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” nearly tripling the Obama-era DACA program, the White House said Thursday as it previewed the plan the president will submit to Congress next week. Mr. Trump’s vision is less than the 3 million people granted legal status under the plan pushed by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Richard Durbin, but far more than the 690,000 people currently in the DACA program. White House officials said they felt they had to go that far in order to demand major changes...

    (The following is an open letter to the voters of Alabama from Bill Staehle of Asbury Park, New Jersey.) I served with Roy Moore in Vietnam in 1971-72, where I knew him to be an altogether honorable, decent, respectable, and patriotic commander and soldier. I have had no contact with him since. He and I were captains and company commanders in the 504th Military Police Battalion, stationed at the base camp called Camp Land, just west of Danang. I knew him well in my first four months in-country before I was re-assigned within the battalion to another location. During that...

    Why has the case of British 11-month-old baby Charlie Gard struck an international nerve? At its core, this controversy is about state infringement on parental rights. The question is, whose child is Charlie: his parents’ or the state’s? Why is the hospital holding him hostage and by what authority can it override his parents’ wish to pursue therapy that could help Charlie? President Trump, Pope Francis, 40 European parliament members, members of Congress, Terri Schiavo’s brother Bobby Schindler, and even Cher have weighed in, all agreeing the hospital should release Charlie to his parents. According to Justice Francis in a...

    From Thomas Wictor on Twitter (1) Boy oh boy. Remember we said that after Obama left office, we'd find out the damage he did? It's much worse than I imagined. (2) Under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice pushed the states to pass new laws. (3) The goal was to make it impossible to hold repeat offenders in jail before trial. Why? (4) Because so many repeat offenders are black. (5) The first step was to reclassify violent felonies as nonviolent misdemeanors. Look at California. (6) Assault with a deadly weapon, harming a crime victim or witness,...

    Totally baffling. This Associated Press write-up of yesterday's FBI press conference makes clear that everyone involved agrees that deceased shooter James Hodgkinson detested Republicans with a fiery passion, yet investigators seem unwilling to call his attack premeditated or specifically targeted -- nor will they comment on his motive at this point. Why? Am I missing something here? This is what they're telling us right now: The gunman who shot a top House Republican and four other people on a Virginia baseball field didn’t have any concrete plans to inflict violence on the Republicans he loathed, FBI officials said Wednesday...They said...

    n indicating his disapproval for the pending nuclear agreement between the United States, Iran and four other countries, U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., called for a broader strategy to confront Islamic extremism in the Middle East during a speech Wednesday from the Senate floor. "I think it's a mistake. I'm going to vote 'no,'" Sessions said of the agreement, saying that if such a deal is consummated, "it will create instability even more so in the Middle East and can alarmingly lead to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in multiple nations in the Middle East." The nuclear agreement is all...

    The Washington Post has retracted its story about Russian hackers penetrating the nation’s electricity grid with a virus found in a Burlington, Vt., electric company laptop. “Authorities say there is no indication of that so far [that Russians had penetrated the US electric grid],” according to an editor’s note attached to a corrected version of the story on the paper’s Web site. “The computer at Burlington Electric that was hacked was not attached to the grid,” the editor’s note read. News of the supposed hack had set off a firestorm of recriminations, with Vermont leaders calling Russian President Vladimir Putin...

    House Bill 451 will have its first hearing in the Ohio Senate on Tuesday. The bill, which would affect who decides a person on life support’s fate, was drafted in response to the 2011 stabbing death of local woman, Maria Vera. In particular, the bill would offer protections in the case that spouses were in the middle of a divorce, legal separation or dissolution. It would also take into consideration situations where the victim has a temporary or civil protection order against their family member. In that case, that family member would not be allowed to determine what happens to...

    This keeps happening on and off and it's driving me crazy. When I click on someone's name to find their comment history - either with a search on "user", or going to their profile page and clicking "in forum", I see one page of comments. Then when I click on "next page", I am taken to the page of articles they've posted. It's important to be able to see peoples' posting history sometimes - looking for a specific comment, or on a thread, or checking for trollhood either with comment tone/topic, or posting history.

    Geert Wilders, leader of the nationalist Dutch Freedom Party, wants a ban on pretty much much everything that has to do with Islam. Wilders released a manifesto Thursday for how the Freedom Party plans to reverse the “Islamization” of the country between 2017-2021. The platform includes bans on mosques, Islamic schools, the Koran, headscarves on women and Muslim immigration. Wilders has been able to gain popularity at home despite going on trial several times for “inciting hatred” with his remarks against Islam Recent polls suggest the Freedom Party may become the largest in next year’s election. The party is still...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. “He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...
