    FiveThirtyEight noticed last week that, very quietly, Biden was recovering from the polling hit he took after the busing exchange with Kamala Harris at the last debate. Harris had zoomed up after that in some polls, even touching 20 percent in Quinnipiac’s June survey, but the trend didn’t continue. It was Biden who was once again on the rise while Harris dipped a bit.Now here comes Quinnipiac’s July poll with even clearer evidence of the trend.What happened?Look back to the numbers from June. After a long slide in early July after the first debate, with Harris nearly passing him,...

    The Senate today confirmed Brian Buescher, President Trumps nominee to the U.S. District Court in Nebraska. Readers may recall that Senate Democrats attacked Buescher for his membership in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic service organization. I wrote about this here. Sen. Kamala Harris was one of the Senators who led the charge against Buescher during his Committee hearing. His other main adversary was Sen. Mazie Hirono, one of the Senates dimmest members. Harris isnt dim, but shes a hard core leftist and an incorrigible opportunist. Thus, her suggestion that Bueschers membership in the Knights of Columbus makes him unfit...
  • Tulsi Gabbard sues Google over censorship claims

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a 2020 presidential contender, is suing Google over claims that the tech behemoth violated her right to "free speech." In a federal complaint filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Gabbard alleged Google censored her presidential campaign when it suspended their advertising account for several hours last month. A Google spokeswoman pushed back on Gabbard's claims in a statement to The Hill, attributing the brief suspension to sudden "large spending changes" that set off Google's automated systems. "We have automated systems that flag unusual activity on all advertiser accounts ...

    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 dont 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...
  • Tulsi Gabbard: Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief

    I think one of the things Im most concerned with is Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief, and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier, said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, during an appearance on Fox Sports Radios Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis. Shes got no background or experience in foreign policy and she lacks the temperament that is necessary for a commander-in-chief. Ive seen the cost of war firsthand, Gabbard continued. Ive experienced the consequences of what happens when we have presidents, as we have from both political parties in the White...

    Monday on ABCs The View, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said President Donald Trump was inciting racism and violence, by continuing his feud with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), known as The Squad. Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, The president hasnt backed down on his attacks on the four freshmen congresswomen. This weekend he tweeted this, I dont believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country. Do you think the president is inciting violence against these women?

    Before the Senate on Tuesday, Dennis Prager, the founder of the conservative behemoth PragerU and its affiliated YouTube Channels, railed against the video-sharing service for restricting access to roughly one-fifth of his video content for being mature contents considered inappropriate for younger audiences. Prager testified that YouTube routinely suppresses conservative perspectives such as his on its website and bars restricted mode users from viewing roughly twenty percent of the 320 videos uploaded by his channel. Censored content includes videos on the Ten Commandments and the history of Israel, according to Prager. We have repeatedly asked Google why our videos are...
  • Harris and Gabbard Not Constitutionally Qualified To Be President or VP by Attorney Larry Klayman

    Senator Kamala Devi Harris (D-California) cannot become president unless she is a natural born Citizen. The U.S. Constitution contains few eligibility criteria for our nations highest post. But being born to the country is one of them. Since a vice president must be able to succeed to the presidency, Harris could not run as vice president, either. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 requires that only a natural born citizen can serve as president. The Constitution clearly distinguishes between a citizen and a natural born Citizen. There is a special case of citizen who is also natural born. An interesting...

    Oprah Winfrey got a "big mahalo" for opening her private road on her property in Maui to help people quickly escape a brush fire that broke out Thursday. Residents in the town of Maalaea and parts of Kihei were sent an evacuation notice on their phones, and flights to the island were diverted. "@Oprah there's a huge brush fire on Maui right now! People are trying to evacuate Kihei-my husband and son included!" one resident tweeted. "If you would kindly share the code to your gate/road, folks can evacuate through Kula." Winfrey responded that she had given immediate access to...

    True. We should never hate our enemies. But we must detest Gods enemies, those who engage in mass murder and genocide, slaughtering Gods children. Last week my friend and presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker was asked whether he would meet Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader. Corys response: I dont feel the need to do that, but Im not one of these people that says I wouldnt sit down with anybody to hear what they have to say. He then added that he is highly acquainted with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam from his time as mayor of...

    Only one presidential candidate on the debate stage last night received an overtly negative question, and that was Tulsi Gabbard. Although shes already painstakingly addressed the anti-LGBT comments she made as a teenager, and explained how her accumulation of new life experiences caused her to shed views taught her during childhood, Chuck Todd nevertheless saw fit to bring that up issue in front of a national audience being exposed to her for the first time. The moderators didnt raise any other candidates past liabilities, although plenty of them have what one might consider baggage, yet they chose to devise a...

    Most everyone in America was and is in favor of marriage equality. Most everyone was and is in favor of marriage equality because most everyone wants the law to treat all marriages equally. The debate in the United States in the decade and a half before Obergefell v. Hodges wasnt about equality. It was about marriage. We disagreed about what marriage is. Of course, marriage equality was a great slogan. It fit on a bumper sticker. You could make a red equal sign your Facebook profile picture. It was a wonderful piece of advertising. And yet its completely vacuous. It...
