    GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), who has been viewed as a key swing vote in the Supreme Court fight, said in a recent interview that her office has received “some pretty ugly voicemails” over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. “My office has received some pretty ugly voicemails, threats, terrible things said to my staff,” Collins said in an interview with WVOM on Wednesday. “This has been a very ugly process and I think that’s very unfortunate for everyone involved,” Collins added. Collins’s remarks arrive on the heels of reports earlier this month in which aides for the moderate senator detailed calls and...

    A federal appeals court on Tuesday tossed out a lawsuit that claimed President Trump incited a riot when he ordered three protesters to be removed from a rally in Kentucky during the 2016 presidential campaign. A three-judge panel on the 6 th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the three demonstrators didn’t state a valid claim under state law and found Trump’s comments were protected by the First Amendment, since he “did not specifically advocate imminent lawless action.” "In the ears of some supporters, Trump’s words may have had a tendency to elicit a physical response, in the event a...

    Full Title: O'Keefe Catches Antifa 'Fight Instructors' Teaching Activists How To Inflict Pain on Their Targets A new undercover video from James O'Keefe's Project Veritas features Antifa “fight instructors” teaching activists how to incapacitate political enemies by violently attacking them. "If you get a good liver or kidney shot, it's pretty much crippling them," the Antifa instructor said. "They're going to be pretty much doubled over and in a lot of pain." The instructor also recommended breaking one of the floating ribs to cause maximum pain in a victim. "It's hard to move after that -- to catch a breath,"...

    President Trump held a raucous rally in Tampa, Florida, Tuesday night. Thousands of supporters packed the arena to hear Trump hammer his critics and tout his administration’s accomplishments. There was plenty of hecklers, comedy and chants about Hillary and 2020. Trump stopped to pick on one of his favorite targets, the media, approximately half-way through the speech. The president heckled the press in the press pen as "fake news" and the audience roared, chanting "Fake News" and "CNN Sucks" at the reporters. On of the favorite targets of the audience was CNN's Jim Acosta, who tweeted multiple videos of the...

    CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.” The lengthy segment started with the guests naturally asking Jones what he thought about the White House banning his colleague Kaitlan Collins from the Rose Garden yesterday. He blasted the action, saying she did the right and only...

    <p>Abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement is becoming a litmus test for liberal Democrats. It’s insane. It’s not serious, but it makes the Left look totally unhinged, so grab some popcorn. The calls to abolish this federal law enforcement agency has grown since the child separation issue blew up at the border; families being separated upon arrest for trying to illegally enter the U.S., which is a crime. Also, many a human trafficker feigns family status, hence why adults and children are separated. Obama had the same policy. Yet, with the Trump administration actually trying to enforce federal immigration laws, the lurch to the Left on immigration from liberals has manifested itself with this call to abolish ICE. Immigration and abortion are two of the most explicit examples of how Democrats, liberals, progressives, and other groups that wallow in this left-wing cesspool have moved outside of the mainstream. The whole campaign is nuts, and with it, comes the usual tinges of self-righteousness that’s unavoidable with liberals. But you see, because their cause is just, some think it’s a license to use racist language to accomplish their ends.</p>

    This week, liberal celebrities, politicians and members of the media put on a clinic on how to behave badly. On Wednesday, actor Peter Fonda posted about the president’s 12-year-old son on Twitter. “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant (expletive) she is married to.” Fonda also called on his followers to intimidate the children of federal immigration staff and border agents, tweeting, “We don’t have to take the agents kids, we only need to surround their schools and scare the...

    Violence broke out in downtown Portland, Oregon, on Sunday as Antifa activists stormed a Patriot Prayer rally — about a year after similar dueling rallies triggered bloody fights and arrests. Some protesters on Sunday hurled bottles and fireworks at police officers while others were caught with knives and other weapons, Portland Police tweeted. Officials encouraged people to get out of the immediate area "for their safety." Many of the Antifa activists wore black and covered their faces. Some protesters said they were demonstrating against police brutality; one sign bluntly read "F--- the police." Patriot Prayer, which bills itself as a...

    Staring down the prospect of a public relations crisis — boycott threats and "die-in" protests included — over its donations to Republican gubernatorial hopeful Adam Putnam, Publix said Friday it has halted all corporate political contributions. The supermarket giant made the announcement moments before a "die-in" protest planned by David Hogg, a vocal Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control activist. Despite the news, Hogg and dozens of protestors sprawled on the floor of a Coral Springs Publix for 12 minutes clutching sunflowers and signs that read "No NRA Money." Hogg and other students began their influential movement for gun...

George, along with three other election workers, was accused of harassment and intimidation against voters who wanted to vote for candidates of their choice, but not the candidate being pushed by the city’s Democratic Party machine. Minority inspector Calvin Mattox previously pleaded guilty to not meeting the qualifications of...

    Jim Webb, the decorated Vietnam combat veteran, writer, and former US senator, wrote “Heroes of the Vietnam Generation,”which pairs well with an earlier essay, “Peace? Defeat? What Did the Vietnam War Protesters Want?,” published by the American Enterprise Institute, in 1997. Both are very useful, especially for those who didn’t live through the Vietnam era, for understanding some of that generation’s dynamics. Webb discusses how it was really the first time in US history when a lot of people argued not going into the military was actually a good thing, and this sentiment has guided how a lot of people...
