    President Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is throwing cold water on reports that Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer, is preparing to cooperate with investigators in the special counsel's Russia probe. In an interview with Fox News's Laura Ingraham late Wednesday, the former New York City mayor also dismissed the possibility that Cohen could have incriminating information on Trump. “He’s not cooperating nor do we care because the president did nothing wrong,” Giuliani said. “I am absolutely certain of that.” “Michael Cohen, I think, would tell you he’s got nothing incriminating with the president,” he added, saying that he would be...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is hinting there could be more fallout from the internal investigations that have rocked the FBI while defending his top deputy Rod Rosenstein against allegations of conflicts of interest. Sessions told The Hill’s new morning show Rising in an exclusive interview airing Thursday that the impending release of a Justice Department inspector general report on missteps during ex-FBI Director James Comey’s era will better help the agency improve from past mistakes that led to Comey’s firing last year. “If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do...

    A leaked draft of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) amnesty deal could lead to the “biggest” amnesty for illegal aliens in United States history, experts tell Breitbart News. Ryan’s immigration deal would go beyond giving amnesty to only the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. According to a leaked draft of the amnesty deal, obtained by Breitbart News, Ryan’s plan would allow the entire “DACA population” to be eligible for amnesty so long as they meet low educational, work and criminal requirements, prompting the amnesty to explode in...
  • PELOSI: ‘IT PAYS TO HAVE A NUCLEAR BOMB IN YOUR POCKET’ WHEN NEGOTIATING WITH TRUMP

    “And when you deal with these issues you have to see, what is their capability?” she continued. “We know, it’s nuclear. What is there a proliferating behavior? We’ve seen the experience. What is their intention, as they go forward in both of those areas? These are long-term serious discussions that have to take place, and you don’t just say, ‘Well we’re no longer going to do exercises with the South, because we no longer see a threat in the North.” “So, again, we all hope and pray that diplomacy works, for sure. But this is deadly serious. And I guess...

    Last month, April, 2018, the California Department of Justice raided prominent Kern County Farmer, Jeffrey Scott Kirschenmann. The justification for the raid was pictures the farmer had sent to the Department of Justice in an attempt to register a rifle. The DOJ claimed the rifle was an illegally modified “Assault weapon”.  During the raid, the DOJ confiscated 230 rounds of ammunition, a dozen guns, two objects claimed to be “silencers”, and some sort of trigger activator. There is reason to be wary of the accuracy of the claims of what was found during the raid. California law is very complex....

    As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported, UK activist Tommy Robinson was arrested on May 25th for suspicion of breaching the peace while livestreaming to report on the trial of a child grooming gang and will now have to serve a prior 13 month suspended sentence. Friends and supporters of Robinson, 35, are asserting that his notoriety and stance on Islam places his life in great danger in prison. Articles about the arrest and subsequent imprisonment of Tommy Robinson were rapidly scrubbed from the internet after the British government put restrictions in place banning any reporting on the matter. Now this…...

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Rhetorical question: if a Hillary-hating Trump supporter had shot and almost killed a Dem congressman, do you think CNN would have mentioned that fact on the one-year anniversary of the event? But in its five-plus minute segment this morning on the first anniversary of a shooting at a Republican practice baseball game in which GOP congressman Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed, CNN failed to even name the shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, and never mentioned that he was a Trump-hating Bernie Sanders supporter. The only reference to Hodginkson was CNN reporter Phil Mattingly speaking of a “lone gunman.”Get the...

    Hakani had one of the most traumatizing childhoods imaginable. She was born in 1995 in Brazil as part of the Suruwahá tribe. Her name means “smile,” but she had few opportunities for that. At the age of 2, she had not yet learned to walk or talk. Tribal custom in this case was clear. The tribal elders declared that she had no soul and that she should be killed. Her parents killed themselves, rather than follow through on the tribe’s custom. Her 15-year-old brother tried to bury her alive. But she kept crying, and someone dug her up. The task...

    On Wednesday, the governor is expected to sign a package of bills approved by the Democrat-controlled Legislature — a few of which received wide support from Republicans. The following bills are sitting on Murphy’s desk: * A1217, which will create restraining orders in the state allowing family members and others to ask a judge to have a person’s guns seized and ban them from buying weapons for up to a year. * A1181, which will mandate law enforcement in the state to seize a person’s guns if a mental health professional determines they pose a threat to themselves. * A2758, which will strictly define that state residents need...

    Corey Stewart, Virginia’s voter-chosen Republican to fight for Democrat Tim Kaine’s U.S. Senate seat, is a divisive guy who calls it like it is, cares little for political correctness and who finds himself in frequent defensive stand-offs with a hostile press. In other words, he has a really good chance of winning this November. snip But all that, in this political climate, means zero-to-nothing. Stewart’s a guy whose entire political career with the Board of Supervisors in Prince William County, Virginia, has stirred pots of controversy. For instance: He was the face of hate to the left during the widely...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is making it clear: He wants Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a potential re-election rival, to stay home. Bevin, a Republican, has yet to say whether he will seek a second term in 2019, prompting speculation he's interested in unseating McConnell in 2020 — or that he's hoping for a Trump administration gig. McConnell made it plain in an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader that he'd prefer Bevin run for another four year term as governor. "I hope he runs for re-election and finishes the job by serving the full eight years that are allowed under...

    New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker told an audience of progressive activists on Wednesday that Americans who aren’t “deeply disturbed” by the current political climate need to “check” their love of country. The man who once said he burst into “tears of rage” after hearing about comments President Trump allegedly made about third-world countries told attendees at the We The People Summit that Americans have lost a “sense of purpose. **SNIP** “Folks are trying to divide us and cut us up, pin us against each other — poor white folks against poor black folks, poor brown folks against poor black folks,”...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to take steps to curb ozone pollution that blows into New York and Connecticut from five other states. The decision by U.S. District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan is a victory for New York’s and Connecticut’s attorneys general, Barbara Underwood and George Jepsen. Their offices sued EPA administrator Scott Pruitt in January, accusing him of ignoring his responsibilities under the federal Clean Air Act to reduce pollution.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) mangled a famous Texas saying while delivering a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday so badly that he unintentionally praised President Donald Trump for the outcome of the Singapore Summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. For generations, Texans have referred to a person who talks big but is unable to deliver as someone who is “all hat and no cattle.” New York’s left-wing “urban cowboy” reversed the words when he attempted to deliver what he intended to be a stinging rebuke of Trump’s historic accomplishments in Singapore on Tuesday. “This summit was much...

    The coach for the Republican congressional baseball team asked President Trump to attend the annual game on Thursday, the anniversary of last year's shooting that wounded Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and several others. "I asked him to come, I guess it was last week, I was over at the Oval Office. He said, 'I'll be there,'" Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas) told The Associated Press. Last June, a gunman attacked GOP lawmakers as they practiced for the annual charity game. Scalise was badly wounded and underwent multiple surgeries as part of his recovery.

    SFGate ^ | April 28, 2018 | Luz Lazo, the Washington Post
    Maryland's stepped-up efforts to collect unpaid tolls are raking in millions of dollars for the state - outpacing the growth in toll revenue itself. State lawmakers and consumer protection groups say the crackdown - which includes referring thousands of delinquent accounts to collections - is punitive and predatory and is pushing Marylanders into debt - and in some cases bankruptcy. Transportation officials say they are only enforcing tolls motorists should be paying anyway - a major shift from years past when the state allowed scofflaws to run up hefty amounts in unpaid tolls and fines without consequences. "Certainly, we want...

    Seriously, the Democrat party should embrace this guy as their poster child candidate. ======================================= He believes in instituting a patriarchal system, with women under the authority of men; he supports abolishing age restrictions for marriage and laws against marital rape; he believes that white supremacy is a “system that works,” that Hitler was a “good thing for Germany,” and that incest should be legalized, at least in the context of marriage. And at one point in a conversation with The Post, he seemed to express admiration for the system run by the Taliban in Afghanistan, noting that the country’s birthrate...

    German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has invited Italian populist leader Matteo Salvini to Berlin in order to discuss Europe’s border crisis. The pair has already spoken on the phone and are in “full harmony” on migration and security policies, according to a statement from the Italian Interior Ministry. Mr Seehofer is the leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU) party of Bavaria, which has pushed for a cap on asylum seeker numbers and disagrees with ruling coalition partner Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) on the issue. Mr Salvini serves as Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister...
