    With all the fake news uproar over Attorney General Sessions meeting with the Russian ambassador, perhaps this photograph provides some ‘nothingburger’ perspective: https://twitter.com/TEN_GOP/status/837428361882263552 Just last Tuesday night Ambassador Kislyak attended President Trump’s speech to a Joint Session of congress. The Russian ambassador was noted in numerous conversations with Senate Democrats and was seated on the Democrat side of the venue. Apparently, Kislyak is a regular visitor to the Capitol as noted in this tweet reply from Brit Hume: https://twitter.com/brithume/status/837442325500538883

    Outgoing Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill did not pull any punches in a recent interview, blasting her party for not empowering moderate Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections. Recapping her Senate career with Rachel Martin on NPR's "Morning Edition," McCaskill called her loss a "failure" to bridge the gap between the Democratic Party and Americans in rural areas. Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley unseated McCaskill, ousting the Democrat after two terms. "This demand for purity, this looking down your nose at people who want to compromise, is a recipe for disaster for the Democrats," McCaskill said. "Will we ever get to...

    McCaskill, Cordray 'freed from constraints' of not being able to say what they really think. Losing Democratic politicians say they can finally tell the truth now that they are "freed from the constraints" of needing the support of their constituents. "It occurred to me that I am now freed from the constraints of running for or holding public office," said Richard Cordray, failed coup-leader and losing candidate in the Ohio governor's race. Cordray says now that he does not have to be accountable to voters, he can "speak more naturally" about what he really thinks about issues.

    One of the top abortion activists in the Senate has gone down in defeat. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill fell behind to pro-life candidate Josh Hawley after announcing her opposition to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and ultimately she lost her re-election bid today. A pro-abortion Democrat, McCaskill was considered one of the most vulnerable senators running for re-election in the November midterms. Josh Hawley, an attorney and former clerk to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, serves as Missouri’s attorney general. Prior to his time as the top prosecutor for the state, he was an appellate litigator and senior...

    If the volume of early and absentee voting is any indication of voter interest in this election, polling places in the counties in the suburbs of St. Louis, Mo., will be packed Tuesday. Rich Chrismer, the long-time elections director in St. Charles County, said Monday his team had already seen 11,000 walk-in voters compared to the typical 2,000. Mail-in absentee ballots, he said, were also way up. "It almost looks like a presidential election," said Mr. Chrismer, who said voters in his county were motivated by the battle over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the tight race...

    COLUMBIA (AP) — Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill has approvingly evoked former President Ronald Reagan. She said she would back President Donald Trump if he stopped a migrant caravan at the border. And speaking on Fox News, she has decried "crazy Democrats." What is the Democratic senator up to? The vulnerable incumbent is appealing to the right in a bid to win a third term in a state that Trump won by 19 percentage points in 2016. She's betting a more centrist message will resonate with independents and moderate Republican voters she desperately needs to beat Republican challenger Josh Hawley, who...

    Red-state Democrats are touting their border security bona fides as President Trump hammers the issue in the final week of the midterm election. Democrats — hoping to eek out wins in states where Trump triumphed in 2016—have focused on their ability to work with the administration on the border, even as the president and their GOP opponents try to paint them as obstructionists on immigration. Immigration has emerged as an explosive, and deeply divisive, issue in the Trump era. The president is barnstorming key Senate states this week, accusing Democrats of supporting “open borders, socialism, and crime.” And he released...

There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?” –Don Lemon Just to illustrate the absurdity of Don Lemon’s comments, I thought it would be fun to go look at the current list of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists.

    “To the barricades, comrades!” That could be Nancy Pelosi’s battle cry come November . . . if you believe Malcolm Nance, that is. Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, terrorism analyst Nance raised the specter of Russian meddling with the Dems’ “blue wave” in the 2018 elections, suggesting the Ruskies might even resort to “direct messing with the ballots.” Nance said that such meddling: “would be tantamount to setting the grounds for civil war. Really, to be quite honest.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Democratic Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill sparked a fierce backlash from a Democratic legislator in her home state after listing her as an example of a “crazy Democrat.” In a scathing series of tweets on Monday and Tuesday, Missouri Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal referred to McCaskill as “Dixie Claire,” described her as a “piece of shit,” compared her to a slave owner and accused “McCaskill and her racist democratic friends” of alienating the party’s base voters. McCaskill raised eyebrows in the final weeks of the midterm campaign by running a radio ad that described McCaskill as “not one of those...

    In the final stretch of a tight Senate race in increasingly red Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill turned against her own party in a new campaign radio ad that declares she is “not one of those crazy Democrats.” The unusual message has been hitting the airwaves in central Missouri for about a week, and it debuted as Republican challenger Josh Hawley’s internal campaign polls showed him taking a 7-percentage-point lead in a race that for months has been a dead heat.

    Call it a highly biased opinion hit piece disguised as a news report in the October 19 Kansas City Star. In fact, your humble correspondent had to check the home page of that periodical to make sure it wasn't listed as "Opinion" but, no, it was listed under their "Latest News" section. I am referring to the article (really opinion hit piece) about the October 18 Senate debate in Missouri between incumbent Claire McCaskill and challenger Josh Hawley written by a reporter with a looooong history of over-the-top liberal bias, Melinda Henneberger. Her blatant bias becomes all too evident by the second paragraph...

    Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D-Mo.) campaign is asking her Senate race opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley (R), to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate whether a right-wing group violated state laws in secretly recording and publishing a video from inside the senator's campaign headquarters. KMBC News in Missouri reported that McCaskill intends to pursue legal action after the conservative group Project Veritas secretly recorded staffers talking about how they handle Planned Parenthood donations. McCaskill's campaign did not comment Wednesday night on the possibility of legal action, but pointed to a statement criticizing Hawley for his inaction after the video was released....

The Drive-Bys… Let me just tell you what the Drive-Bys purpose here is, again. The Drive-Bys are trying as hard as they can to link Donald Trump to Khashoggi’s murder. By the way, just so you know, there are a couple of CNN infobabes who are pronouncing the name “Khashog-gee” because there’s two G’s in there. Every time I’ve heard the word, the name pronounced, it’s always been “Kah-show-gee,” Adnan Khashoggi pronounced his name that way. Robin...

An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am...
