    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he wouldn't be "intimidated" by protesters who have confronted him in public several times this year. "I'm not sure what about my career has led them to believe that I am easily intimidated. ... This is all about intimidation. It's not about persuasion but about intimidation. And I assure you I will not be intimidated by these groups of socialists who apparently prefer open borders," McConnell told reporters in Kentucky. McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were confronted as they left an event near Washington last month by protesters over...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade. Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York. "We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there," Gov. Cuomo said. During the 2016 election, Donald Trump regularly stated that he would only appoint judges to the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling.

    Sen. Kamala Harris’ office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Monday’s Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide. According to the account, the Democratic California senator’s office told White House Counsel Don McGahn, “We want nothing to do with you.” The senator's office has since denied saying that. Asked about the claim, her office confirmed that the senator's chief of staff, though not Harris, spoke with a McGahn aide -- but denied the quote. But according to the White House, the brusque response came as McGahn reached out to each...

    Six LGBT activists have found a way to fly the Pride flag in Russia - by wearing football shirts in the rainbow colours. The country has had a law banning the spreading of "gay propaganda" among under-18s since 2013. The Pride flag is a symbol celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, but displaying it in Russia can get you arrested. The group got together and wore their nations' football tops around Moscow. It meant the shirts of Spain, the Netherlands (who weren't in the World Cup), Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia collectively made the colours of the stripes of...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the latest Republican to learn going to a restaurant in this political climate is dicey. McConnell was taunted by protesters Saturday as he left the eatery in Louisville, Kentucky ... confronted over immigration policies that include separate children from their parents. As McConnell strolled out with Kentucky House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell, protesters screamed, "Where are the babies, Mitch?" and "Abolish ICE," and "No justice, no peace." Shell called the protesters "a small group of extremists" and said their comments were "out of the Maxine Waters playbook."

    An estimated 60,000 people gathered in and around Daley Plaza at 11 AM this morning, including a marching band, voter registrars, Captain America, and a family who might have been Aztec warriors. The heat index was above 100 degrees, but thousands stayed through the hour-long rally and the march afterward. (The column of marchers was so long that as some were returning to the plaza at the end of the 15-block route, others were still just leaving.) There was a handful of speakers, though the crowd was so vast that their voices didn't carry very far. One young woman spoke...

    "This president is the subject of a criminal investigation," Booker said. "Here you have a president that's making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people." While Special Counsel Robert Mueller told Trump's lawyers in March he is under investigation, Trump is not considered a "criminal target," . . . Booker testified as a character witness on behalf of his colleague Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), when he was on trial for public corruption for accepting bribes from his long-time friend Dr. Salomon Melgen, in exchange for political favors.

    As Kristinn Taylor of the Gateway Pundit reported, a protester ‘got very close’ as he threw Russian flags at President Donald Trump as he walked though the Capitol Building with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) on his way to a lunch meeting on tax legislation with Republican senators. CBS News posted a video clip of Trump and McConnell walking as the flags were thrown. A voice can be heard yelling about “treason”. Security at the scene was apparently quite lax as the protester had clear aim at the President and it was several seconds before any apparent reaction took...

    … a picture of the 2016 electoral college map that was hung on the board, irked that her students continued to remind her of the election’s outcome and that she lived in a red state. She appeared to point to Florida on the small map. Down the hall a few doors, another math teacher, said to be Mexican-American and who was also apparently not a fan of the president, found a “wall” blocking the doorway to her classroom. Throughout the video, the teacher repeatedly stated that she had been warning others that her students weren’t simply “rowdy,” but were disrespectful...

    A shooter opened fire on Congressional Republicans practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game at a baseball park in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning, injuring lawmakers, staff, and law enforcement. It is unclear at this time whether the shooter was killed or is currently in police custody. In the wake of the shooting, lots of people on the Internet lost their minds. Several progressives even went out of their way to suggest the victims deserved to get shot because they have the wrong views on gun control, or Obamacare, or Donald Trump. Here are some of the most insane reactions to...

Kathy Griffin’s photo shoot with controversial photographer Tyler Shields in which she is shown holding a bloodied mask of Donald Trump that makes it look as if the President was beheaded has ignited a firestorm of criticism. But Dan Gainor, VP Business and Culture for the Media Research Center, said Griffin's stunt was par for the course. "Kathy Griffin has long gone too far -- even kissing the crotch of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper during a New Year's Eve show," Gainor told Fox News. "She's...

    Rosie O’Donnell is back to her old habits—bullying Donald Trump’s eleven-year-old son, Barron. After comedian and CNN pundit Kathy Griffin received huge backlash for sharing a photo of her holding a bloody, severed head of Donald Trump, One America News host Liz Wheeler posted about the impact the photo had on Barron: “TMZ reports: Barron Trump was watching TV & saw @kathygriffin holding the severed head. He thought it was his dad. My heart is broken," wrote Wheeler. O’Donnell, however, was not sympathetic towards the chilling thought of an eleven-year-old boy seeing his father decapitated on TV. "Was he watching...

    For months since the election the only topic on the mainstream media (MSM) news outlets has been that President Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton by working in collusion with Russia. This fallacious argument is played around the clock by the MSM and discussed repeatedly ad nauseam by Democrats every chance they get. On Wednesday the headline of the Drudge Report was that Democrats felt they were finally at the place where they could poll test their efforts to impeach President Trump. Democrats can’t do anything without a poll. The Drudge Report’s headline linked to a report from...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) In a week where we’re getting a new Supreme Court justice, the alt-left has been supremely insane. They have moved into a complete panic about the world, blaming the end to their filibuster on divisive Republicans. Somehow they seem to forget a bit of the Supreme injustice they’ve inflicted on various right-leaning nominees. Does the term “Borking” remind you of something? Then, in the aftermath of President Trump’s reaction to Syria, they seemed perplexed. Salon ran with the ultimate, alt-lefty spin: “DID PUTIN GIVE PERMISSION?” Liberals...
