    Kaya Jones, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls, claimed in a March 1 tweet that “every single Democrat that voted against the born alive bill received money from Planned Parenthood.” Verdict: True Of the 44 senators who voted against ending debate and proceeding to a vote on the Born Alive bill, 42 were Democrats – all of whom received funding from Planned Parenthood during their latest election cycle. Fact Check: The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced to the Senate on Jan. 31 by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse. The legislation came after a Virginia delegate faced backlash for...

    Democrats leading six House committees demanded the Justice Department release special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report to Congress by April 2, citing outstanding questions they claim were not answered in Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of the Russia investigation provided to lawmakers Sunday. ... In addition to Nadler and Schiff, the letter was signed by House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters of California, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal of Massachusetts, and House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel of New York.

    Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer strongly pushed back against the anti-semitic label Republicans have been pushing on Democratic party, arguing that Israel needs a united front from its ally. “Not only is it demonstrably false to say Democrats are anti-Israel. It also hurts the Israel-US relationship,” Mr. Schumer said at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference Monday. “Those who seek to use Israel as a means of scoring political points do a disservice to both Israel and the United States.” His comments come after Democrats have struggled to address anti-semitic controversies surrounding some of its own freshman...

    As of the penning of this editorial President Donald J. Trump has scored his most significant victory while in office.His claim that neither he nor his campaign had any illicit conspiracy to sway the election by colluding with foreign agents from the Russian government and cheat their way into office in 2016 has been fully substantiated.We can know this using deductive reasoning from the initial statements asserted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller upon his transmission of his final findings to the Department of Justice. He affirmed that no further criminal indictments would be filed by his office in the matter.

    Governor Janet Mills (D-Maine) is backing legislation that would allow non-doctors to perform late term abortions in her state. “The kind of slicing and dicing needed to dispose of an unwanted child doesn’t require the same kind of education and expertise needed to save a life,” Mills contends. “The law currently allows mohels, who are not doctors, to perform circumcisions. Why shouldn’t Satanists, who regard abortion as a sacred rite, be permitted to decapitate and dismember the unwanted unborn?” The governor’s suggestion was greeted by cheering and applause from Democrats in the state legislature. It was also praised by Planned...

    Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) announced on Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2020, leaving the Senate seat he has held since 2009 up for grabs. “I’m confident that we could run a strong campaign next year to earn a third term, because of all the work you and I have done together, along with my wife, Jill, and my incredibly dedicated staff," Udall said in a statement. “But the worst thing anyone in public office can do is believe the office belongs to them, rather than to the people they represent. That’s why I’m announcing today that I...

    To keep blacks feeling like victims in a forever racist America, Democrats keep the flames of racial division burning. Blacks are only 12% of the population. This means white voters gifted the first black president two terms. Despicably, Democrats continue to tell blacks, “Keep voting for us to keep racist white America off your backs.” Contrary to the Democrats' lie, we have come a long way baby in race relations in our country. Living, working, and playing together, a majority of Americans work out their racial issues. We need race-baiting Democratic politicians to get out of our way.

    A freshman Democrat in the House on Monday insisted that there is "suspicious" evidence that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation "was not covering" related to President Trump's administration that could come back to haunt him.“We have the evidence over the last two years that the Mueller investigation was not covering that is highly, highly suspicious,” Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on "New Day." Hill cited ongoing controversies and questions relating to White House officials’ security clearances, the possible sale of nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia and separation of migrant children...

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee warned political strategists and vendors Thursday night that if they support candidates mounting primary challenges against incumbent House Democrats, the party will cut them off from business. The news was officially announced Friday morning, paired with a statement on the committee’s commitment to diversity in consulting — “which, obviously, is just to give themselves cover,” a Democratic political consultant who learned of it Thursday told The Intercept. The consultant asked for anonymity given their relationship with the DCCC, and the party organization’s professed strategy of blacklisting firms that don’t fall in line.

    The end of the Mueller investigation does not end the various congressional investigations into President Trump. Far from it. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told "Fox News Sunday" that his committee has a "broader mandate" than Special Counsel Robert Mueller did: "So we have to look into abuses of power, we have to look into obstructions of justice. And that we will do, and we'll see where it goes -- we'll see where the facts take us."

    Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who has pushed to impeach President Trump every year that the commander-in-chief has been in office, said Sunday that "impeachment is not dead," despite findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe showing the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia. The congressman tweeted that Mueller's report, which was submitted on Friday and the key findings of which were released Sunday, "did NOT investigate bigotry emanating from the Presidency harming our country." He continued: "The findings do NOT negate the President’s bigotry. As long as bigotry influences the President’s policies, I will continue to seek...

    There was relief for the White House and frustration for President Trump’s foes on Sunday when a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings was released by Attorney General William Barr. The 22-month probe is over. Here are the main takeaways. A big win for Trump The president could hardly have hoped for a better outcome than the one delivered in Barr’s letter to Congress. “No collusion,” the president has always insisted. Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team now agree. “The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated...

    Pennsylvania Democrats want to register your guns. On March 15, state House Representatives Angel Cruz (D-Philadelphia), Mary Isaacson (D-Philadelphia) and Mary Jo Daley (D-Montgomery) proposed the Firearms Registration Act, from which only antiques and guns owned by law enforcement would be exempt. Gov. Tom Wolf strongly supports the bill. “The bill would require Pennsylvanians seeking to do anything with a gun, whether that be own, possess, sell or transfer, to apply for gun registration through State Police,” said Cruz. “This (Pennsylvania State Police) database will aid all law enforcement officials with investigations and with tracking missing or stolen firearms.” State...

    As Robert Mueller exits stage left, the Justice Department will continue to pursue a handful of investigations—and potentially more prosecutions -- that began with or were bolstered by the special counsel's work. And a significant group of them still focus around President Donald Trump. The still-live investigations range from an expansive probe into the Trump inaugural committee, to various investigations relating to former top Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, to tips that stemmed from Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen's experience with Trump and his family's company. It's possible other investigations are being conducted quietly, as well.

    The Democrats’ dramatic, leftward turn is proof of how “sick” the party has become and why it is “the greatest threat to the constitution,” according to Fox News Channel’s Mark Levin. Levin, a best-selling author whose daily broadcast is heard by more than 10 million listeners on nearly 400 stations and who also hosts Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin,” delivered the explosive diagnosis during “Hannity” on Thursday night. After Sean Hannity mentioned some of the recent pushes by Dems to scrap the Electoral College and stack the Supreme Court, Levin launched his attack. “The greatest threat to our constitution...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 23 Mar, 2019 | Robert Spencer
    The Democrats won’t say a word about this. They have already learned that nothing negative whatsoever can be said about Omar, on pain of charges of “Islamophobia.” And support for Hamas-linked CAIR is mainstream among the Democrats. They routinely appear at CAIR events and have no apparent interest in what the group is all about. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror....
