    After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of Backpage.com — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC. Mrs. Pelosi’s political action committee, House Majority PAC, has resisted giving the money back, and an aide to Mrs. Pelosi said the California Democrat knows nothing about the contribution. The uproar over sexual harassment that began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which...
  • Kirsten Gillibrand Received Over $20,000 From A High School In California

    Kirsten Gillibrand received over 20,000 thousand dollars from Palo Alto High School. Why is a California high school giving $20,400 to a Junior New York Senator? This really makes no sense. Why is a public school giving taxpayer money to ANY campaign? Is the high school name BS and meant to hide the real donor? Is this a money laundering scheme? Palo Alto High School is in one of the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. It is a pipeline to the University of California system, Stanford, and Ivy League schools. What’s more even the teachers are extraordinarily well-connected. For instance,...

    Over the last three election cycles, a whopping 95 percent of political donations from University of Nebraska, Lincoln (UNL) employees have gone to Democrats. The disparity is even greater than suggested by voter registration records, which show that more than 50% of professors across 7 major departments identify as Democrats. The university has been desperately disputing allegations that it is hostile to conservatives ever since a group of professors harassed a student while she recruited for her TPUSA club in August.
  • Jeff Flake Takes His Condemnation of Moore a Step Further

    Some Republicans are so fed up with Roy Moore that they aren't just denouncing him, they're helping his Democratic opponent fundraise. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) gifted Doug Jones $100 on Tuesday in order to put "country over party." Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was in Alabama campaigning with Moore Tuesday night. He trashed Flake's paltry donation. "C'mon brother, if you're going to write a check, write a check," Bannon said. Flake is a "total embarrassment," Bannon added, mocking the senator for his poor approval ratings (just 30 percent of Arizonans.) Clearly, Flake believes at least some of the...

    Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones has financially overwhelmed his Republican opponent Roy Moore but all his money may not make a difference in the Alabama Senate special election. Allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore rocked the race, initially boosting Jones’ fundraising and standing in the polls. But polling numbers have tightened in recent days. With the Dec. 12 election roughly a week away, both campaigns are making their final cases to voters for the seat vacated by former Sen. Jeff Sessions, now the attorney general.

    A $100 million fund to appease America-hating players while sticking the knife in patriotic fans. The dying National Football League is choosing its America-hating, national anthem-protesting multimillionaire players over patriotic sports fans by funneling close to $100 million to leftist charities like those founded by admitted communist Van Jones. The corrosive fairy tale, embraced by professional football, that police use black Americans for target practice is malicious nonsense but it is a useful lie, good for direct-mail campaigns and MoveOn solicitations. With this new initiative, NFL Commissar Roger Goodell is affirming for the umpteenth time that it is in the...

During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents...

    ARTICLE DATE 11/24/16...............The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is the most partisan agency in the federal government in terms of donations to candidates, according to campaign finance data. Employees at the CFPB, which was created by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, contributed nearly $50,000 during the 2016 campaign with all of that money going to aid Hillary Clinton or her rival, the insurgent socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., VT). Agency employees made more than 300 donations during the campaign. Not one went to a Republican candidate. Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), a frequent critic of the agency,...

    Secret donors are financing the lawsuit against President Donald Trump and White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney over who runs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Gupta refused to name who is funding the lawsuit, making it difficult to ascertain the motives, intentions, or any special interests of those underwriting the case.

Virginia, one of the most gerrymandered states in the country, is central to the party's plan to draw more favorable congressional...

According to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner, the Niners said they—along with local and national law enforcement—are signing a pledge for a "more understanding and safer America." The legislation would ban mechanisms that can make a semi-automatic weapon an automatic weapon, in addition to silencers and armor-piercing bullets. Per Robert Salonga of the Mercury News, a portion of the 49ers' donation will go toward nationally televised public service announcements meant to ease tension between law enforcement and those who fear police violence. The 49ers and a coalition...
