  • Cory Booker claims he didn't read anti-Israel sign he allowed himself to be photographed holding

    Senator Cory Booker, who is one of the Democrats contending for his party's 2020 nomination for president, is pleading political negligence, claiming that he didn't bother to read a sign that he allowed himself to be photographed holding.  Booker, who has raised considerable money from pro-Israel Jewish groups, apparently got carried away with intersectional enthusiasm at the Netroots Nation confab and was unable to get a clue from the t-shirt on the woman standing next to him that proclaimed Palestine's virtue in the realm of "feminist/queer refugee racial justice" that he might be endorsing a radical point of view. The...

    Imagine this: the convicted domestic abuser next door tries to buy a gun. He's turned down because he fails his background check. When he gets home, he opens up his browser, and in half an hour he's printing out his own undetectable, fully functional plastic gun, with no background check and no record of his purchase. As of August 1, it will be a reality in America -- unless we are able to stop it. Due to a settlement between the State Department and Defense Distributed -- a Texas based designer of 3D guns -- felons, domestic abusers, terrorists, those...

    An Oregon woman recently came home to an unusual surprise: a mountain lion, which continued taking a nap for six more hours behind her sofa. The odd encounter took place on July 8 in the Ashland, Ore., home of Lauren Taylor. After drinking from a pond in Taylor’s backyard, the cat likely entered her home through an open back door, she explained in Facebook. The post had garnered more than 17,000 reactions and shares as of Tuesday morning.

    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for women to get more involved in social movements because men have been "getting on my nerves." "Women, in particular, by the way, I want you to get more involved," Obama said while hosting a town hall for young African leaders in South Africa. "Because men have been getting on my nerves lately. I mean, every day, I read the newspaper and I just think like, brothers what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us? Obama added that "empowering more women on the continent" would "lead to some better policies" right away....

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said he regrets telling FBI agent Peter Strzok in Thursday’s House Judiciary and House Oversight committee hearing that he deserves a Purple Heart medal for his testimony. “I said something at the hearings yesterday about Purple Hearts which another network that is named for a four-legged animal has been making a big deal about,” Cohen told CNN, referring to criticism from Fox News. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart,’” he continued. “I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should be given to agent Strzok. But I do believe that...

    Those on the left who are angry about anything and everything related to President Donald Trump have, in some instances, published contact information for administration officials and urged their peers to call and harass those with ties to the White House. This form of tantrum throwing has been largely criticized by most people who still value decorum in pubic debate. But in Alabama, there’s a new twist on the dialing-direct method of airing grievances. Alabama Sec. of State John Merrill is fed up with claims by opponents of the state’s voter ID law that tens of thousands of Alabama citizens...

    Chicago alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa penned an op-ed for NBC that encapsulates the reasons why Democrats will be unable to capitalize this November on the relative unpopularity of Republicans in the Midwest, given the Dems' turn to the hard left. Rosa is described as "Queer, Latinx and a democratic socialist" – whatever that means. In political terms, it means he would be a gone goose if he ran for Congress in the vast majority of districts anywhere in the Midwest. But Rosa doesn't see it that way. In fact, he believes that Midwesterners would embrace a socialist candidate and are "not...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said the Trump administration had trapped children in a “bureaucratic cave” with his zero-tolerance policy on immigration which caused some families to be separated after crossing the border illegally. Referencing the children being saved from a cave in Thailand, Durbin said, “Before I get into that, our hearts and prayers are with those boys in Thailand, trapped in the cave. I hope our hearts and prayers are also with thousands of children, toddlers and infants, removed from their parents by the Trump administration, under zero tolerance. They’re trapped in a...

    The tattoo gave it away. A Greensburg police officer knew a city man was giving him a fake name, according to court papers. The evidence was right there in front of him — tattooed on the suspect's neck. Chad M. Stitch, who turns 35 Friday, was riding in a car that was pulled over Wednesday after it was suspected to be involved in a drug deal, according to police. Stitch is being held in the Westmoreland County Prison on $300,000 bail. A witness reported to police an apparent drug deal involving a blue Chevrolet Malibu at 7:15 p.m. in a...

    Short video at link. CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted a question at President Trump Friday about his treatment of the press, asking if he would “stop calling the press the enemy of the people.” While at an event marking six months of the GOP tax law, Trump spoke about Thursday’s shooting at a newsroom, saying the incident “shocked the conscience of our nation.” “This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief,” Trump said. “Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.” He went on to...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday said calls for opponents of the Trump administration to publicly harass Cabinet members are “not American,” arguing Democrats should focus their energy on winning elections. “I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don't agree with you. ... No one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That's not right. That's not American,” Schumer said from the Senate floor. Schumer added that he understands the “frustrations” some members of his party feel when Trump “complains about bullying [and] harassment” even though the president uses it “as a regular...

    Effort to highlight border separations violated chamber rulesRep. Ted Lieu of California violated House rules Friday by playing a recording of crying children who were separated from their parents at the border, ignoring a presiding officer who implored him to stop. Mr. Lieu, a Democrat who frequently rails against President Trump online, refused from the lectern at the front of the chamber, which was empty except for dozens of tourists who looked down from the gallery. “I think the American people need to hear this,” Mr. Lieu said, brushing off Rep. Karen Handel, Georgia Republican who happened to be presiding...

    WORLD—North Korean President Kim Jong Un came under intense scrutiny this week after meeting with a barbaric nation that has killed over 60 million of its young since legalizing abortion in 1973. Political commentators agreed that by meeting with the nation of savages that abort hundreds of thousands of their young each and every year, Kim Jong Un appeared to be legitimizing the backwards, depraved nation of America. “Just picture Kim Jong Un up there shaking hands with Hilter,” one pundit said. “That’s basically what this amounts to, when you consider that he’s meeting with a country that his killed...

    Editors at BuzzFeed were reportedly aware that one of their reporters engaged in a years-long romantic relationship with one of her top sources, the former director of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee who was indicted and arrested Thursday night for lying to FBI agents. According to the Daily Caller, Ali Watkins, employed as a national security reporter by BuzzFeed from November 2015 to May 2017, informed her superiors of her relationship with James Wolfe, yet none of her stories ever made note of the serious conflict of interest inherent in her covering the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    New York Times reporter Ali Watkins' past tweets are raising eyebrows after revelations she had a three-year romantic relationship with a Senate Intelligence Committee aide now accused by federal prosecutors of leaking sensitive information to journalists, including herself. (Snip) In an April 2013 tweet, Watkins also tweeted about the fictional Netflix television show “House of Cards,” where a young reporter has an affair with an older member of Congress. “I wanted to be Zoe Barnes...until episode 4,” she tweeted. “Sleeping with your source- especially a vindictive congressman? #badlifechoice #HouseofCards”
