  • ROGER STONE PREDICTION: DON’T IGNORE MICHELLE OBAMA FOR 2020

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be the Democratic nominee to face Trump in 2020, says election expert Roger Stone. The current frontrunner, ex-Vice President Joe Biden, is simply “cannon fodder” for the Obama political machine, said Stone in his exclusive interview Tuesday with Alex Jones. “If Joe Biden wants to run, let him run,” said Stone. “He’s cannon fodder.” “The Obama machine will sweep him aside and I still predict that their strongest nominee – their most likely nominee – would be Michelle Obama.” Stone slammed Biden’s 24% polling position as a “sign of weakness” given his long political...

    The Democratic Party establishment is about to experience the same kind of internal warfare the GOP faced in 2010 and beyond with the rise of the so-called “Tea Party” movement, and it’s liable to have a deleterious effect on the party in 2020. The rising “Democratic Socialist” faction has only just begun to flex its muscle, having won a few seats during the November midterms but clearly looking to capitalize on those gains in 2020 and beyond. Its members are feisty, defiant, fiercely suspicious of the Democratic hierarchy, and champing at the bit to shed the last vestiges of political...

    Confirmation proceedings for President Trump’s judicial nominees have partially stalled on Capitol Hill, as outgoing Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake is standing firm in his vow to oppose all Trump nominations until the Senate votes on legislation to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Flake, a frequent Trump critic who opted against running for re-election this year, followed through on his threat Wednesday afternoon and joined Democrats in opposing a bid to advance Thomas Farr’s nomination to serve on the federal bench for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Vice President Pence was then forced to break a tie on...
  • ABC's Nightline Blasts 'Controversial' Nominee Before He’s Even Announced!

    The new Supreme Court pick is very “controversial,” whoever he or she turned out to be. That was the consensus of ABC’s Nightline. About 90 minutes before Donald Trump announced the name of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Nightline’s Twitter page blasted: Again, they didn’t have a name (or any news outlet for that matter), but this mysterious person was “controversial.” Later in the evening, the Nightline account weeted out a “correction” to explain what the network journalists meant to say: As the MRC’s Rich Noyes noted on Monday, networks routinely label “conservative” judges and skimp on “liberal” labels for Democratic nominees.

    In early September, the Senate held a confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor nominated for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Sen. Dick Durbin grilled her about her use of the term “orthodox Catholic” to describe those who try to practice the teachings of her church. “Do you consider yourself an ‘orthodox Catholic’?” asked Durbin of Illinois, himself a Catholic, taking issue with Barrett’s use of that term to describe those who strive to align their lives fully with their church’s teachings. Hawaii’s Sen. Mazie Hirono suggested Barrett would be beholden to Catholic teaching when...

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker on Sunday dismissed criticism about Republicans “ramming” Mike Pompeo’s nomination as secretary of state through the chamber, saying Senate Democrats have blocked the “highly qualified” Pompeo from getting the post just to appease their anti-Trump base. “I don't think allowing people to vote is called ramming,” Corker, R-Tenn., said in response to the criticism on CNN. “This is a person who is highly qualified. He was first in his class at West Point, did The Harvard Law Review … knows more about what is happening in the world probably than anybody in America...

    There's something refreshingly honest about those Democrats revealing their bigotry in the halls of the United States Senate.They did so in questioning Amy Coney Barrett, a law professor at Notre Dame, a Catholic and woman of impeccable academic credentials, who has been nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, a Catholic town.Democratic U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein are applying a religious test to public office, something expressly forbidden by the Constitution. And by their questions to Barrett, they reveal themselves.This evokes a line of inquiry from an earlier age, one asked of leftists during the...

    Senate Democrats are planning an all-night talkathon Thursday over President Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Asked whether Democrats are planning to hold the floor all night, a spokeswoman for Sen. Tom Carper (Del.) — the top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works Committee — confirmed that "that's the plan." A spokesman for Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) directed questions to Carper's office but noted that Democrats aren't planning to yield back debate time. The late-night floor drama comes after senators voted to move forward with Scott Pruitt's nomination earlier Thursday in a 54-46 vote....

    Donald Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court is generally regarded as a supporter of the Second Amendment and gun rights. Vigorously praised by the National Rifle Association, Neil Gorsuch “has endorsed Second Amendment rights,” says FiveThirtyEight. However, there is one ruling that gives some conservatives concern, relating to when police can disarm those carrying firearms. Although Gorsuch’s positions on some hot button issues – like abortion – are less clear, his stances on the Second Amendment and guns are clearer. Trump chose Gorsuch, 49 – a Denver appellate judge who is known as an “originalist” – to replace the...

    Come January, Republicans will control all three branches of government, but with only 52 Republicans in the Senate. That will not give them the 60 needed to break a Democrat filibuster. Appearing on various Sunday talk shows, Schumer was asked if Senate Democrats will filibuster Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, whoever it may be. “I would hope first and foremost that President Trump nominates a mainstream nominee capable of getting bipartisan support,” Schumer told Fox News Sunday.“If he does, then we’ll give it just a very, very thorough vetting, but we won’t ipso facto say no. If it’s out of the...

  • Best outcome is for 'healthy enough' Hillary to be the nominee and lose to Trump on Nov 8

    Hillary is not liked by many voters, let along by many Democrat voters and won't have the same election turnout that Obama had in the 2012 election. She is slipping away in the polls and momentum appears to be on Trump's side. If for some reason Hillary isn't the nominee; then it's highly plausible that the Democrats will select someone that's more likable to the base and that may certainly energize peole, even those that don't like Hillary and are considering voting for Trump but may be swayed to go back to vote for Democrat ticket. Joe Biden is one...

    Members of the "Free the Delegates" movement are expected to file separate lawsuits in Arizona and Virginia on Friday, challenging the constitutional restraints on binding delegates to a candidate at next month's Republican National Convention. A source familiar with the forthcoming court filings claimed that some individuals seeking to unbind all 2,472 delegates in Cleveland next month are being intimidated by state-level GOP officials. In some cases, the source said, party leaders have threatened to revoke delegates' credentials to the national convention. Regina Thomson, who serves as executive director of Free the Delegates, could not be reached for further details....
