  • Exclusive–Ortiz: Boris Johnson Election Victory Is Bad News for Democrats

    Boris Johnson’s dominant election victory in the U.K. national election this week is great news for the U.S., yet terrible news for the Democratic Party. Defying the pundits, Johnson romped to a majority government in the biggest conservative victory since Lady Thatcher in the 1980s. The win was just the latest for the silent majority that wants good governance in contrast to the bellicose activists who desire socialism.
  • Mike Braun: ‘Good Chance’ Three Senate Democrats Could Clear Trump in Impeachment Trial

    Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) told Breitbart News during a press conference Tuesday as many as three Democrat senators could vote to clear President Donald Trump of any wrongdoing during a potential Senate impeachment trial. Many establishment media outlets have speculated over whether some Senate Republicans could flip and vote to convict President Donald Trump during a Senate impeachment trial; however, there remains a distinct possibility many red state Senate Democrats could vote to clear Trump.
  • Where are the real 2020 centrists?

    The most persistent narrative of the 2020 race for the Democratic nomination is that it amounts to a battle between leftists (Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren) and centrists (Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and now Michael Bloomberg) over who is best suited to take on and take down President Trump. But what if there are no true centrists in the 2020 race at all? Oh sure, there are plenty of candidates who portray themselves as centrists — and other candidates, like Sanders and Warren, who delight in skewering these less left-leaning options for ideological heresy. But do the three Bs — Biden,...

    Mueller's Verdict May Be In, But Closure Is Out of Reach . By Susan CrabtreeMarch 25, 2019 Mueller's Verdict May Be In, But Closure Is Out of ReachAP Photo/Carolyn Kaster After nearly two years of alternating White House angst and Democratic anticipation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and final report set off a frenzy in Washington over the weekend but provided neither closure nor solace for a divided nation. Indeed, it seemed to cement America’s dueling split-screen political realities in place for years to come. anticipation of the “big reveal,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity ran a banner headline Friday night:...

    Americans horrified by the conduct of the Senate Judiciary Committee over recent weeks should take heed. The reprehensible antics of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and the complicity of her Democratic colleagues, revealed for the country a spectacle that was nothing less than a dress rehearsal for the impeachment of President Trump. In fact, the success of the Trump administration in front of that very Judiciary Committee by seating two conservative Supreme Court justices practically guarantees that if the Democrats win control of the House in November, they will move to impeach the president. Why? Because Trump-deranged Democrats know full well that...
  • Pollster to Dem Candidates: Focus on Mueller Indictments

    With the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference now in its second year, Democratic pollsters are offering the party a way to hone a persuasive counterargument to President Trump's revved up rhetoric against Robert Mueller: talk less about the 2016 election and more about indictments handed down thus far. A new survey by Navigator Research, a group of top Democratic strategists and public opinion experts, finds that while 97 percent of Americans have heard about the Mueller probe, nearly 60 percent don't believe it has uncovered any crimes. The ongoing investigation has so far resulted in two dozen indictments,...

    Four U.S. Senators addressed members of the press at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday morning, hours before the official relocation of the U.S. embassy — and all four were Republicans. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Dean Heller (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mike Lee (R-UT) made the trip, along with ten Republican U.S. Representatives — but not one Democrat joined the U.S. delegation for the embassy event. Only former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) — who was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000 before being rejected by his party in 2006 for his support of the Iraq...

    Money, message and ultimately the map, in equal measures. That’s what wins political campaigns. You can’t win modern campaign without money. It’s necessary to pay professional campaign staff, to mobilize voters, to run advertisements, to get your message out. But money by itself is not enough. Just ask President Phil Gramm or President Jeb Bush. You need to have the right message to fit the right time. You can have great qualifications and a huge Rolodex, but if you can’t articulate simply and effectively what you want to do once you gain the political office you seek, you won’t win....

    The thrusting green shoots of early spring and visions of cotton-tailed rabbits confounding my wife’s splendid Hungarian dogs by their acrobatic zig-zag jumping have incited me to make some predictions about this midterm-election year. Congress has given notice that it has effectively shut down, having passed its egregious omnibus-spending bill, as Senator Schumer and Minority Leader Pelosi welcomed Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan back to the pre-Trump days of Congress’s just rolling the pork barrel around with no serious guidance from the White House and unfazed by overwhelming disapproval ratings in the polls. Eighty-five percent of Americans are currently contemptuous...
  • Trump stuns GOP, Dems with impassioned push for gun control

    03/01/2018 5:17:04 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 156 replies
    President Trump stunned Democrats and Republicans alike on Wednesday by pushing for gun-control measures that have long been poison pills for the GOP and pipe dreams for their opponents. The president, during a televised, hourlong sitdown at the White House with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, appeared to back a bill proposed in 2013 by Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania that would expand background checks for weapons purchases. The bill — written in response to the 2012 massacre at the Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Conn. — failed in the Senate...

    Democrats are delaying for one week an initial committee vote on Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the committee, said Democrats had requested that the committee's vote on Gorsuch be punted to next week. "I understand that the minority would like to hold [him] over," Grassley said during the Judiciary Committee's meeting on Monday. Under committee rules any one member can request that a nomination be held the first time it appears on the agenda. Democrats were widely expected to delay the committee's vote until next week. The delay means...

    Neil deGrasse Tyson, who ranks right behind Bill Nye as the White House’s most respected scientist, humorously dedicated his large, pulsing brain to the topic of political endorsements on Monday, so who was keeping an eye on the cosmos? That would be DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who praised Attorney General Loretta Lynch while accusing North Carolina Republicans of having powers that put most comic book super villains to shame.

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Monday claimed that allegations of wrongdoing surrounding the community group ACORN are bigger than the Watergate scandal that brought down the President Richard Nixon. King, a long-time critic of ACORN, told the conservative American Spectator that the ACORN scandals have been worse because they affect state, local and national politics.

    DEMS VOW SANCTIONS AGAINST CANDIDATES WHO THWART NEW CALENDER Sat Aug 19 2006 11:16:47 ET The Democratic National Committee moved on Saturday to penalize 2008 presidential candidates who defied a new nominating calendar designed to lessen the longtime influence of New Hampshire and Iowa -- the two states that have traditionally kicked off the nominating process. The NEW YORK TIMES will report on Sunday: The sanctions would be directed at candidates who campaigned in any state that refused to follow a proposed calendar that the committee was preparing to approve. Any candidate who campaigned in a state that did not...

    ELMENDORF AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska - President Bush escalated the bitter debate over the Iraq war on Monday, hurling back at Democratic critics the worries they once expressed that Saddam Hussein was a grave threat to the world. "They spoke the truth then and they're speaking politics now," Bush charged. Bush went on the attack after Democrats accused the president of manipulating and withholding some pre-war intelligence and misleading Americans about the rationale for war.
