  • Democrats baffled as 2020 candidates go on the attack — against Obama

    President Barack Obama wasn’t on the debate stage with the 10 Democratic presidential hopefuls Wednesday night — but his legacy was, and it was trashed by many of the candidates, leaving some Democrats scratching their heads in disbelief. Obama’s record on immigration was widely criticized by the participants and his signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act, became a casualty of the discussion around “Medicare for All,” as his former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to defend the administration’s work. Eric Holder, Obama’s attorney general, warned Democrats to tread lightly. “To my fellow Democrats. Be wary of attacking the Obama...

    The Democratic Party that my grandfather belonged to no longer exists in any meaningful sense. Today, the Democratic Party is run, financed and driven by radical, hate-filled people who love socialism and hate conservatives, Christians, men, white people and America itself. Those are mainstream beliefs among the Party elite. Yes, there are plenty of Democrats who don’t believe in these things, but they still support and vote for the hate-filled radicals who want to destroy everything good about this country so they can build some never-before-seen Utopia that will never exist anywhere except in their own minds. Read these quotes...

    A federal judge has ordered current and former attorneys for President Trump’s onetime national security adviser Michael Flynn to appear in court at the end of August. Judge Emmet Sullivan, the Obama appointee overseeing Flynn’s case in Washington, D.C., scheduled a status conference for 11 a.m. on Aug. 27 after Flynn’s new legal counsel said his former Covington & Burling attorneys had not turned over all of the files related to his case. Sullivan also said he would invite a legal ethics official to the hearing to explain the applicable rules “In light of the representations made by defense counsel...

    Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has fired his legal team as he awaits sentencing for lying to the FBI about his conversations with a top Russian official, according to a new filing Thursday from his long-time attorneys. The lawyers, Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony, offered no explanation for their abrupt dismissal in a two-page motion delivered to the federal judge who will mete out Flynn’s punishment stemming from his 2017 guilty plea to Robert Mueller’s prosecutors. In their filing, the attorneys said Flynn had notified them that “he is terminating Covington & Burling LLP as his counsel and...

  • Nadler once called Holder contempt vote ‘shameful,’ now leads charge against Barr

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., led the charge Wednesday to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for not handing over documents related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe -- declaring the move necessary as the country enters a "constitutional crisis." But Nadler took a very different stance on contempt back in 2012, when House Republicans took the same step against then-AG Eric Holder for refusing to hand over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, where DOJ officials tracked thousands of guns smuggled across the border but did nothing to stop them.

    Former President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder won’t tell the truth when it comes to their redistricting strategy, but here it is: Pick a state, any state, and sue until it’s blue. They have spent years and millions of dollars selling the false narrative that Democrats draw “fair maps” while any and all Republican-drawn maps are “partisan gerrymanders.” While rhetorically cute, their primary goal has nothing to do with fighting gerrymandering as they repeatedly claim, but to put redistricting in the hands of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats and lifetime-appointed judges. Their strategy makes sense. There are plenty of unelected...

    “I was driving my then 11-year-old son somewhere, probably soccer practice, when he burst into tears and asked me, ‘is Donald Trump going to put you in prison?'” So claimed the embarrassingly serious Olivier Knox, the White House Correspondents Association president, at the association’s annual grub fest on Saturday. What Knox should have said is, “No, son, President Trump is at least open in his hostility. The First Amendment gives him the same rights as it gives us. It was President Obama’s dirty, covert war on the media that had me worried.” At this point, little Knox should have asked,...

    House Judiciary Committee Member Jerry Nadler is threatening to subpoena Attorney General Bill Barr if he refuses to testify at Thursday's planned hearing about the Mueller report. Barr was scheduled and ready to testify until Nadler changed the terms of agreement to do so. In addition to questioning from lawmakers, Nadler plans to have Committee attorneys inquire about the report with the attorney general. That's where Barr is standing his ground.  NEW: Barr has warned Dems on House Judiciary he won’t show up to this week's highly anticipated hearing if they stick to the format Nadler has proposed for the questioning,...

    Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder claimed Friday that any “competent” prosecutor would be able to make a successful obstruction of justice case against President Trump based on the findings outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. “ANY competent public corruption prosecutor would bring obstruction charges against Trump/and win. Only reason Mueller did not was because of the flawed DOJ [Justice Department] restriction against indicting a sitting President. He said so (below). Congress now has a constitutional responsibility,” Holder wrote on Twitter.

  • I Wish Nipsey Hussle Had Been Armed

    I wish Nipsey Hussle had been armed. Had he been able to protect himself as a legal concealed weapons carrier, he might be alive today. Instead, his children will have to grow up without their father. I’m so tired of seeing “good guys” become victims of “bad guys” with guns in anti-Second Amendment states like California. God only knows if California will see a rise in violent crimes after reckless Gov. Gavin Newsom halted the state’s death penalty. Stories like Hussle’s are typically foreign to the conservative movement, but they shouldn’t be. Our policies work for the Nipsey Hussles of...

    Eric Holder, the suspect in the fatal shooting of Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle, was charged Thursday with murder and two counts of attempted murder, authorities said. Holder, 29, is being held in a Los Angeles jail. He was also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors recommended bail be set at $5,000,000, according to a criminal complaint. If convicted of murder, Holder faces between 25 years and life in prison. . . . . Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday morning that Holder and Nipsey knew each other, and the suspect had approached the...

    In 2010, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) voted to appropriate the sale of mining company Uranium One, to Russia’s nuclear agency, Rosatom, thus handing 20 percent of US uranium supply to Russia. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on CFIUS when the committee unanimously approved the Uranium One deal. Information has recently surfaced showing that Russian officials routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation prior to the the Uranium One deal. Of course, there is a whole lot more to this sticky situation. As Glenn says, by way of introduction in the video above,...

Officials are currently trying to remove all patients to a safe location in order to transport them, the department said. It’s unknown how many people are injured. Los Angeles police have responded to the memorial’s massive crowd with riot gear and batons and have formed at least two containment lines, as seen on a live signal from CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS. In the live signal, there are people seen running and the dedicated memorial seems to be in disarray. Also in...
