    Former President Obama took more veiled shots at his predecessor Monday night, suggesting that the reason the U.S. is not taking more direct action against climate change is because of “hate, anger, racism — mommy issues.” Obama appeared at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago, where author Dave Eggers interviewed him about ways to mobilize Americans toward creating social change.

    CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Wednesday denied the White House's claim that he became physical with a young female White House intern during a heated exchange earlier that day with President Trump. Acosta said on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" that he was "trying to hang onto the microphone" when he was approached by the intern, who tried to take his microphone away as he attempted to ask a question of Trump during a White House press briefing. "I didn’t put my hands on her or touch her as they’re alleging. It’s unfortunate the White House is saying this," Acosta said...

  • "Where have all the Millennial men gone"

    Where have millennial men gone? Updated 20 hours ago Millennial males have been dropping out of the U.S. workforce faster than any other age and gender demographic. Half a million more men aged 25 to 34 would be working now if, like women and some other groups, their participation had returned to pre-crisis levels or better, Bureau of Labor statistics show. Reasons include increased rates of school and training, as well as disability and illness. Other factors feeding into the phenomenon: *Fewer high-paying manufacturing and mining jobs *More young adults living at home *Better video games *Increased opioid use

    We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):Watch the latest video...

    "Alright, listen. Michelle, she's not running for president," Obama said on Monday. Former President Barack Obama told Democrats at a campaign event in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday that his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, is not running for president in 2020. “I know that people have been feeling anxious these days. People get frustrated, and they get angry. Folks come up to me and say, ‘Oh, Barack, what are we going to do? Oh, you know what about Michelle?'” Obama said. At the mention of Michelle, the crowd erupted into applause. “Alright, listen. Michelle, she’s not running for...

    Republicans are far from perfect, but the greatest anger, bitterness, and resentment is originating from one side of the political arena these days. The confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh, revealed the current political playbook for Democrat leadership for as long as the insurrectionists control the Party. The Democrat leadership, from Barack and Michelle Obama on down through the hierarchy of “tyrannically-correct” politicians, media moguls, and Hollywood hypocrites, has declared all-out opposition to the Trump presidency and anyone who is allied with Donald Trump. Anyone who has been paying attention - especially viewing the mainstream media outlets...

    With two weeks to go until the midterms, Republicans are virtually guaranteed to win the Senate. As of today, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Arizona, and Missouri appear safe. Just today, the third consecutive poll showing Dean Heller up in Nevada came out (Emerson) and he has expanded his lead now to seven. This would mean that as of today, the GOP would gain a net of two seats in the Senate. Races still supposedly up in the air are Montana, Indiana, West Virginia, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Ohio. Races where the Democrat has a lead outside the margin of...

    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with guest host Dana Bash on Sunday, defending her Saturday vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Collins explained that Kavanaugh’s “forceful denial” along with the obvious pain he was feeling when he passionately voiced his own defense before the Senate Judiciary Committee were certainly part of her decision-making process — but she also noted that she supported an FBI investigation because she felt more information was needed.

Christine Blasey Ford would have ruled out a key date that both Republicans and Democrats have examined in evaluating her sexual assault claim against Brett Kavanaugh, had the FBI contacted her for its inquiry, according to a member of her team…But a member of Ford’s team said the California-based professor — who was not interviewed by the FBI for its inquiry...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh said Monday he is willing to talk to Congress to defend himself against startling allegations of attempted sexual assault in high school — and vehemently denied every part of the accusation. The allegations were made by Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who as a high school student in the 1980s knew the judge and says he attempted to force himself on her at a party. The accusation has upended Republicans’ push for quick confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Judiciary Committee was slated to vote on Thursday, but Democrats and one key Republican...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh firmly denied any allegations of sexual misconduct during his time in high school, responding Friday to a New Yorker report purporting to detail an assault on a female student. “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Judge Kavanaugh said in a statement. ~snip~ Dozens of women who say they knew him from high school, having attended all-girls schools in the area, came forward Friday to defend the judge in a public letter.
