    2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling on financial regulatory agencies to investigate whether President Donald Trump broke the law when he told associates and attendees of his Mar-a-Lago club to expect something “big” in response to Iran’s killing of an American contractor in Iraq. The Daily Beast previously reported that Trump told allies at his Palm Beach club, that he had something “big” in the works to address Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region and that they would read about it “soon.” The president specifically mentioned to some of his associates at Mar-a-Lago that he’d been in...

    Don Jr. [has] ... already teased about running for governor of New York or mayor of New York City, but a better bet will be a quickie relocation to Montana or some other state, at least nominally, before he launches his political career. Junior has spent a lot of time on the campaign trail and has learned the ropes. Expect to see him at the center of the Trump efforts in 2020 and as a constant presence on social media. . . . . Yes, the Imperial Trumps are here to stay. Get ready for four years of the right-wing...

    The Justice Department's inspector general is reportedly close to releasing its report on the early stages of the FBI’s Russia investigation, The Associated Press reports. Those interviewed for the report and their lawyers have reportedly been invited by Inspector General Michael Horowitz to review portions of the draft report this week and next week, a move which is considered a precursor to the report's public release.
  • Lindsey Graham urged Rudy Giuiliani to vet his intel on Joe Biden, his son Hunter and alleged Ukraine corruption and make sure it's 'not Russian propaganda'

    Both Democrats and Republicans are reportedly avoiding Giuliani, concerned that his sources are the same ones who've been known for spinning the truth and outright lies. 'He has not shared any of this information with me', Graham, the Senate majority leader told the Daily Beast about the intelligence Giuliani brought back from his latest trip. 'My advice to Giuiliani would be to share what he got from Ukriane with the IC [Intelligence Community] to make sure it's not Russian propaganda,' Graham said. 'I'm very suspicious of what the Russians are up to all over the world'.

    With the Ukraine inquiry complete and the ink long dry on their 300-page report on the matter, Democrats find themselves in a complicated position next year. It’s the day after Adam Schiff made one last speech on the floor of the House of Representatives arguing that Donald Trump must be impeached. The California Democrat was back at work, headed to the secure room underneath the U.S. Capitol where, over the course of the last three months, his House Intelligence Committee conducted its impeachment investigation. The inquiry shaped charges that Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to do him political...

    President Trump has broken the press in America. Or at least he has left it bruised and battered, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center, which crunched reams of data collected from 50 surveys and found that while Democrats continue to have faith in American media, Mr. Trump’s followers are quite done with it all. The findings were released just days after the press received its latest black eye in the inspector general’s report looking at the FBI’s behavior during its investigation into Mr. Trump. The inspector general thoroughly punctured journalists who insisted that the Christopher Steele dossier...

    “If you don’t think Tucker Carlson has more influence on national security policy than many of the guys on the National Security Council, you’re wrong,” Stephen K. Bannon declared Wednesday tonight to a small group of wealthy Manhattan elites in a baronial Fifth Avenue apartment. Thus, at a meeting of the Common Good lecture series in the modern art-festooned living room of New York plutocrat Richard Cohen, the president’s exiled former chief strategist revealed that America’s global interests are being guided by a Fox News host, a favorite of white nationalists, who recently proclaimed on his primetime show that he...

    The Dan Bongino Show ^ | December 10,2019 | Team Bongino
    Dan Bongino has filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against liberal, online publication the Daily Beast after the website refused to retract and correct a false story it posted about him. The federal complaint, filed today in the Southern District of Florida calls the Daily Beast a “digital assassin owned and controlled by billionaire Clinton-devotees” and states that the website published an article on Dec 10, 2018 claiming Dan was “dropped” from NRATV when in fact, he did not renew his contract. Prior to posting the false and defamatory story, the author of the article, Lachlan Markay texted Dan and...

    Newsbusters ^ | December 8, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Brutal. That's the way to sum up the Daily Beast description of wealthy Democrat candidate for president, Tom Steyer. The purpose of their Saturday article by David De La Fuente was to shame the Democrats into including "candidates of color' at their next presidential debate but a big take away from the story was that it basically described Steyer as a scam artist. Not only were Democrats in general shamed in "Democrats Must Not Have an All-White Debate—and the White Candidates Should Say So" but what really stood out was the brutal slamming of Tom Steyer. Before we look at why De La...

    I knew this review was coming, I just wasn’t sure where it would appear first. Today the Daily Beast published a nakedly partisan review which barely spares a thought for its artistic merit or quality. What matters is that this film seems to make a point that could be seen as Trump friendly: Clint Eastwood’s Richard Jewell wants to be a gripping, outrage-inciting drama about an innocent victim persecuted by—and driven to fight back against—institutional power. Unfortunately, what it turns out to be is a MAGA screed calibrated to court favor with the red hat-wearing faithful by vilifying the...

    Moments before Wednesday’s impeachment hearings and right after U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland’s opening statement was released, Fox News contributor Ken Starr wondered aloud whether Sondland flipping on President Trump would cause GOP senators to push Trump to resign. “The real issue is the senators are watching,” Starr said. “Are senators going to now say in light of what we hear today, it’s going to be a long day even with the ambassador alone, in light of what we have heard, ‘We need to make a trip down to the White House’? That historic example set during the...

    Hollywood’s living saint playing America’s one true hero: What we can learn from the Hanks-Rogers niceness summit in the new film “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” ___________ (snip) -- Directed by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and out Friday, it’s a sensitive portrait of an unlikely friendship. Lloyd doesn’t get the whole Mr. Rogers schtick. But spending time with him, being a direct, in-person benefactor of the icon’s surprisingly workmanlike investment in other people’s well-being, he’s convinced. They forge a bond that is nothing short of profound. Along the way the film illuminates some truths that are...

    “First, I do think that he knows that he's an illegitimate president,” Hillary Clinton told “The View” on Wednesday. The View wasted no time getting to its two big guests on Wednesday morning. After a brief mention of Bernie Sanders’ health scare, moderator Whoopi Goldberg brought out Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton to talk about the news of the day and their new joint project, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience. Hillary Clinton spoke out, as she did on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week, in favor of the Trump impeachment inquiry....

    In Solomon’s March 20 interview with Yuriy Lutsenko, the then-Ukrainian prosecutor general made a series of wild claims, including accusing Biden of pressuring the then-Ukrainian president in 2016 to fire the country’s top prosecutor—at the time, Viktor Shokin—to squash an investigation into a Ukrainian gas company connected to Hunter Biden. (Lutsenko would later retract some of the claims made to Solomon, eventually walking back his claims of wrongdoing by the Bidens, ultimately concluding: “Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws.”)

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took the lead in a new Des Moines Register Iowa poll on Saturday night, marking the first time the Massachusetts Senator led both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the first caucus state in the poll. According to the new survey, Warren narrowly leads at 22 percent, with Biden following at 20 and Sanders at 11 percent. No other candidate reached double digits but South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg followed at 9 percent, with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) at 6 percent to round out the top five. Additionally, the poll found...

    The president has given us ample signs that he will use the powers of the presidency in ways previously unimaginable. How come Democrats seem so relaxed about it? The power of an incumbent president to aid re-election by abusing the executive branch has in the past been limited by a few powerful forces: Presidential integrity; the fear of a scandal emerging in the media; and the prospect of aggressive congressional oversight. Due to forces outside their control, the Democratic nominee won’t be saved by the first two “norms based” options. And as a result of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy of...

    An Iranian propaganda campaign created fake Bernie Sanders supporters online, Facebook disclosed Tuesday. In a press release, the social-media giant said it had removed 652 pages associated with political-influence campaigns traced to Iran, including coordinated inauthentic behavior that originated in Iran and targeted people across multiple internet services in the Middle East, Latin America, U.K., and U.S.” The cybersecurity company FireEye, which first alerted Facebook to the influence campaign months ago, wrote in a separate posting on its site that it had traced the campaign—including posts from supposed “American liberals supportive of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders”—to Iran through email addresses...

    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Monday admitted during a newsroom meeting that an original headline focused on President Trump's response to mass shootings last week was a "f---ing mess," according to The Daily Beast. Baquet made the comment during a meeting with newsroom staff that addressed an array of issues, including how the newspaper has covered Trump and race. But the meeting mainly focused on a print headline — "Trump Urges Unity Against Racism" — describing Trump's response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 people dead earlier this month, The Daily Beast...

    The formula p=mv might just be the E=mc2 of protest. A new study shows it’s not how many turn out for a demonstration that counts, it’s also how often. PARIS—From Algeria to Hong Kong, Sudan to Puerto Rico, people all over the world have been turning out in the streets this year to confront policies and regimes that previously seemed all but invulnerable. And through relentless, largely peaceful protests they’ve had amazing success. There is a lesson here. Americans disgusted by Donald J. Trump, disheartened by his control over the Senate and Supreme Court, demoralized by the consistent support he...

    A generalized starter question to move from that point to the more specific... The Dayton shooter liked AOC, Elizabeth Warren, Media Matters, Will Sommers of Daily Beast, Ben Collins of NBC, said he didn't want to have to wait for Socialism and hated Trump and conservatives. The first shooter, the El Paso one, supported UBI and Universal Healthcare and stated these programs might be viaible if millions died. Sounds like population control so as to allocate natural resources. And these (UBI and Universal Healthcare) are hardly right wing issues. So are these two shooters actually Left Wing Supremacists?
