    In the annals of piggishness, not much beats what's coming out of Joe Biden's mouth about Rush Limbaugh and "decency." According to Fox News: Democratic hopeful Joe Biden slammed conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh as undeserving of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and criticized President Trump's motives for awarding it at the State of the Union on Tuesday night. Biden, speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper at a town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, said Trump's decision to award the highest civilian honor in the nation to Limbaugh was "driven more by trying to maintain [his] right-wing political...

    Floridians will vote next year on whether to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026, an amendment initiative led by Orlando attorney John Morgan that’s already drawing opposition from Republican leaders and the business community. The initiative that will be called Amendment 2 made the November ballot after its wording was approved by the Florida Supreme Court in a decision released Thursday. Court review was the last obstacle to getting the measure on the ballot after Morgan’s Florida For A Fair Wage collected more than 770,000 of the required 766,200 signatures. The amendment would raise the...

    A federal judge delivered a speech Thursday lambasting President Trump’s administration, saying the president has selected judicial nominees that do not represent the diversity of America. During a speech at the University of Virginia School of Law, Judge Carlton W. Reeves, an Obama appointee, compared the president to the Ku Klux Klan and called his administration a “great assault on our judiciary.” “When politicians attack courts as ‘dangerous,’ ‘political,’ and guilty of ‘egregious overreach,’ you can hear the Klan’s lawyers, assailing officers of the court across the South,” the judge said. He noted 90 percent of the president’s picks for...

    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called Fox News “AOC TMZ” and blamed the conservative network for her poor favorability rating in a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday showed that more Americans, 41 percent, viewed her unfavorably than favorably (31 percent). Her unfavorably rating climbed up from 26 percent in September, while her favorability rating also increased from 24 percent, meaning her net favorability dropped from -2 percentage points to -10 percentage points. Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting that she has net favorable ratings from women, people ages 18 to 34 and people who are not white. “If you...

    Actor Josh Charles, known for his work on “The Good Wife,” “Wet Hot American Summer” and “Sports Night” is the latest celebrity to sound off on social media about the Trump administration in the wake of the lengthy government shutdown. It’s unclear what specifically provoked the star to take to Twitter Thursday to go after Donald Trump. However, he pulled no punches in a pair of tweets that were highly critical of the president, his supporters and also Vice President Mike Pence. “I’m so sick of this motherf-----. Just so sick. This needs to end. F--- him and every single...

    A photo has emerged showing Democrat Congressional candidate George Scott (PA-10) pointing a gun at an American soldier in what was allegedly a prank about handling captives. According to Penn Live, Scott indicated that pointing the gun at the soldier’s head was to produce what was “intended as a comic image.” Scott indicates the photo of him pointing a gun at a fellow soldier was taken in 1989 or 1990, “near [the] completion of Operation Just Cause in Panama.”

    Barack Obama's campaign has booted from its airplane three reporters who work for newspapers that have endorsed John McCain. The campaign says that a limited number of seats forced it to make the tough decision of which journalists would be permitted to follow the Democratic presidential candidate in the last four days of the campaign, but the papers are calling foul, claiming they were targeted for their editorial-page positions and kicked off while nonpolitical publications like Glamour and Jet magazines remained on board. Eliminated from the plane's traveling press were the Washington Times, the New York Post and the Dallas...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) privately urged President Trump in a phone call earlier this week to nominate federal Judge Merrick B. Garland, then President Barack Obama’s third nominee to the Supreme Court who was summarily shunned by Senate Republicans in 2016, to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. Trump had called Schumer on Tuesday afternoon for a Supreme Court-centered conversation that lasted less than five minutes, according to a person familiar with the call. Schumer, the person said, pressed the president to name Garland to succeed Kennedy, arguing doing so would help unite the country.

    President Obama used his executive powers to attack industries to lower the value of certain companies, allowing his friends in the private sector to swoop in and buy them up at reduced prices, according to Peter Schweizer’s new book Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends. The book, released Tuesday, said Obama and his administration would deem industries either destructive to the environment or exploitative for the financial and professional gain of his friends, including industries such as coal mining, offshore drilling, cash advance companies, and for-profit colleges.

    The sheriff’s deputy who failed to engage the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School “believed he did a good job” because he called in the location of the massacre and gave a description of the shooter, a top union official said Thursday. School resource officer Scot Peterson, who resigned in disgrace from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, was “distraught” about shooting that killed 17 people — but believed he did his duty, according to the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association. “He believed he did a good job calling in the location, setting up the perimeter and...

    One week after a mass shooter Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Broward's top cop on Thursday revealed a stunning series of failures by the sheriff’s department. A school campus cop heard the gunfire, rushed to the building but never went inside – instead waiting outside for another four agonizing minutes as Cruz continued the slaughter.
