    Sen. Mitt Romney on Thursday criticized President Trump’s deal with Turkey for a five-day cease-fire in its conflict with the Kurds in Syria. “The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached precipitously to withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached,” the Utah Republican said on the floor of the Senate. “Given the initial details of the cease-fire agreement, the administration must also explain what America’s future role will be in the region. What happens now to the Kurds and why Turkey will...
  • NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo uses N-word during live radio interview

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is stirring up controversy by using the N-word during a live radio interview in New York. The New York Post reports Cuomo was on the air with Albany’s WAMC Public Radio Tuesday when he was asked about criticism of Columbus Day and efforts to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day. The governor brought up a recent New York Times op-ed about the treatment of Italian-Americans and spoke about racism. “They used an expression that southern Italians were called, I believe they were saying southern Italians, Sicilians — I’m half Sicilian — were called, quote-unquote and pardon my...
  • Trump is clearly right: We don’t need new immigrants headed directly to welfare

    President Trump’s key immigration rule change, to discourage immigrants from relying on public health programs, food stamps, housing assistance and other welfare, got derailed Friday by three federal judges. Their decisions, blocking Trump’s rule from going into effect, are wins for Democrats and immigration lobbyists. America’s poor are the losers. Our country needs to take care of our own needy first. Trump’s proposed rule would make it harder for immigrants who use welfare to qualify for green cards and give preference to those who fend for themselves. The rule would also require visa applicants to show they won’t use welfare...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Goodbye, Sheppie, we hardly knew ye. – Here is the only truly appropriate reaction to the news that the slimy Shep Smith has left Fox News: [gif] In all seriousness, does anyone really care that our TV screens will no longer be graced by this shrill, overwrought hack? In recent years, Smith’s only role at Fox News was to come on air and cause half the cable channel’s regular viewers to tune into OANN. The channel attempted to elevate his role a few years ago by making him the “anchor” for all...
  • Trump’s making a big mistake in betraying the Kurds

    Turkish jets struck a Kurdish base near the Iraq-Syria border late Monday night, the first grim fruits of President Trump’s decision to order US forces out of the way — a decision we fear Trump will come to regret. We’ll grant that the president is delivering on a campaign promise here: Like most Americans, he doesn’t want this nation serving as the world’s policeman; other countries should share more of the burden when it comes to both troops and money. Or, as he tweeted Monday, “it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars.” He has...

    A gas shortage threatens the Long Island region,” bleat six Long Island state senators, all Democrats, in a letter pleading for approval of a pipeline proposed to fix the problem — belatedly admitting that the policies they’ve long favored don’t work for their own constituents. This year, Sens. Todd Kaminsky, John Brooks, James Gaughran, Anna Kaplan, Monica Martinez and Kevin Thomas all voted for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Green New Deal law, whose very purpose is to further crimp energy supplies, and for a $100 million hike in taxes on energy. And, as Senate GOP leader John Flanagan (their fellow Long...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are buzzing over the 32-year-old Brooklynite, saying he looks like a new star of the party. “I’m really excited to see what Jabari Brisport is going to do next,” said Bianca Cunningham, a co-chair of the city’s Democratic Socialists.
  • Dow loses nearly 500 points on fears that US economy is weakening

    Stocks got slammed for the second day in a row on Wednesday after weak payroll numbers stoked fears that President Trump’s trade wars were slowing down the US economy. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by nearly 600 points, to a low of 25,974.12, after data from ADP showed that private US employers had hired fewer workers than expected. The Dow ended the day down 494.42 points, or 1.9 percent, to 26,078.62. The report, a precursor to the Labor Department’s more comprehensive jobs report due Friday, followed dismal numbers on US manufacturing Tuesday that showed activity was at its lowest...

    What Democrats and their media allies really want is to torpedo Attorney General William Barr’s probe into the origins of the Russian “collusion” hoax. The whistleblower’s written complaint presents Trump’s request that the Ukrainian leader work with Barr to “get to the bottom” of the collusion hoax as part of the alleged quid pro quo. That suggests the whistleblower and his confreres in the ­intelligence apparatus are worried about Barr’s investigation and what it could ­uncover about their spying on the Trump campaign. The whistleblower complaint and the manic news reports of the Australia call both serve the same dual...

    Hillary Clinton has a hide. Suddenly she’s everywhere, jumping for joy about impeachment, labelling Donald Trump an “illegitimate president,” a “corrupt human tornado” and mere “occupant of the “Oval Office” while she mutters darkly about “funny things” that cost her the presidency, her rightful possession. It’s not just the president she and her sore-loser party want to impeach, it’s the 63 million deplorables who voted for him. It’s not just Trump they are branding illegitimate, but anyone who voted for him.

    Even on its own terms, the media’s Get Trump project has proved a monumental failure. If the blob of blue-checkmark Twitterati wanted to help President Trump portray the latest impeachment push as a partisan witch hunt, they couldn’t have done a better job than they are now. Consider the latest example: On Sunday, CBS’ venerable “60 Minutes” program reported on Twitter that “the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection because they fear for their safety.” The explosive news seemed to vindicate his opponents’ darkest fantasies about the president: Of course Trump...

    Impeachment is about to make everything worse. If our politics seems overheated, our institutions beleaguered and our public debate degraded, just wait until we are in the midst of the impeachment debate. Dems have had an impeachment itch they have been desperate to scratch ever since President Trump took office. For them, Ukraine is equal parts a genuine outrage and an excuse, the release valve for three years of fear and loathing. Rather than conduct himself as if he is aware that a hysterical ­opposition is eager to impeach him as soon as it finds a reason, Trump has embraced...

    It hasn’t been a good year to be a cop in New York City, but at 12:30 Sunday morning at the gang-plagued Edenwald Houses in the Bronx, bad became infinitely worse. ... Then onlookers loudly did their best to escalate the incident — wishing the cops on the scene dead, among other ugly things. How many cops on the beat fear ending up as a scapegoat — as did Daniel Pantaleo, fired in the Garner case — and hesitate for a fatal split-second in responding to a lethal challenge? It doesn’t help that many cops believe, quite reasonably, they’ve been...

    When Eve, a 15-year-old from Maryland saw Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka speaking at the Republican National Convention in 2016, she immediately took a liking to her. Admiring how poised she was while addressing the audience, Eve started an Instagram account dedicated to the famous first daughter called “AlwaysIvanka.” The account caught fire instantly, and in the days after Trump became president, it gained more than 10,000 followers, including the first daughter herself. Over the course of the next six months, Eve noticed how little coverage First Lady Melania Trump was garnering for her work in the White House. So she...

    The now-released transcript of President Trump’s July phone call with Ukraine’s prez, Volodymyr Zelensky, shows just why Americans have so little faith in the news media. Turns out, the document shows none of the Trump abuses suggested in press accounts over the past few days — distortions that have already triggered Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “official impeachment inquiry.” Reports claimed Trump made a “promise” to “a foreign leader that was so disturbing it prompted the filing of a formal complaint,” as Vanity Fair reported.
  • New York Post 'obituary' for Bill de Blasio's 2020 run: 'Dead of ego-induced psychosis'

    The New York Post reacted to Bill de Blasio's exit from the 2020 presidential race in much the same way it treated his entry and campaign in general — with mockery. The mayor of New York City dropped out of the Democratic primary on Friday, announcing an end to his long-shot bid on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The New York Post, a right-leaning outlet, wrote the campaign’s "obituary" and placed it on the front cover of the Saturday print issue. "Bill de Blasio's presidential campaign, May 15, 2019-Sept. 20, 2019. Dead of ego-induced psychosis. Neighbors said the body had been in...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio finally got the viral hit he was hoping would rescue his on-life-support presidential campaign — but it wasn’t the breakout moment he’d imagined. “News of him dropping out has already garnered roughly 84,000 mentions in roughly four hours, surpassing his highest media moments while a candidate,” said Josh Ginsberg of the San Francisco-based media analytics firm Zignal Labs. Earlier this month de Blasio mused that, “People go from unheard of to totally famous in 72 hours in America now, so a candidate like me who’s not that well known yet, you ask me in 72 hours,...

    OPINION Devine: Elizabeth Warren’s war on men is an insulting, losing strategy By Miranda Devine September 18, 2019 | 10:35pm Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth Warren Barcroft Media via Getty Images Elizabeth Warren made the political calculation this week that she doesn’t need men to win the presidency. “We’re not here today because of famous arches or famous men,” she told a rally in Washington Square Park Monday night. “In fact, we’re not here because of men at all,” she said, emphasizing the “m” word like an expletive. Great. Then she won’t mind if men don’t vote for her, nor women who...
