    WASHINGTON - Despite President Donald Trump's public declaration that he isn't concerned about impeachment, he has told people close to him in recent days that he is alarmed by the prospect, according to multiple sources. Trump's fear about the possibility has escalated as the consequences of federal investigations involving his associates and Democratic control of the House sink in, the sources said, and his allies believe maintaining the support of establishment Republicans he bucked to win election is now critical to saving his presidency. The president has been on a days-long tirade, sources tell NBC News, lashing out at his...

    WASHINGTON - Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will begin to seek President Donald Trump’s tax returns - a move likely to prompt outrage from the White House - when they take control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January. The House Ways and Means Committee will “take the first steps,” said Pelosi, who has the backing of her members to become the next speaker of the House in January. “There is popular demand for the Congress to request the president’s tax returns,” she said, speaking to reporters. “I’m sure the White House will resist, so the question is where do...

    Rasputin, described as “The Holy Devil,” moved to St. Petersburg in 1906 and began to gain access to the royal family of Tsar Nicholas II. Posing as a mystic, Rasputin was known for strange prophecies, claims of superstitious healing powers, and sexual excesses. As the Tsar and his family came under Rasputin’s spell, the monarch’s credibility suffered, his authority was undermined, and public distrust spread. At this time, Tsar Nicholas escalated his father’s policy of restricting Jews and implementing a full anti-Jewish “pogrom” of cruel persecution. More then 2 millions Jews fled, many to the United States. It was a...

    She threatened to subpoena the son of the President in about a month because he trolled her.The son of President Trump is Donald Trump Jr. And the she is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The meme he trolled her with was genuinely humorous.“Why are you so afraid of socialism?” A more dowdy than generally portrayed Ocasio-Cortez has imposed over her picture.“Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them,” says a superimposed quote over a picture of President Trump.It’s a solid troll! Incapable of laughing it off (which is likely why Trump Jr published it to begin with) Ocasio-Cortez retorted back:“I have noticed that...

    Senior officials for the Venezuelan government have reportedly travelled to London for crunch talks with the Bank of England as they seek to repatriate more than $500 million of gold back to Caracas. **SNIP** Venezuela has in recent years been a major seller of gold, and this year alone it has sold about 26 tons, worth close to $900 million, to Turkey. In the past four years, Venezuela's gold reserves have decreased to about 175 tons from about 400 tons, Reuters reported, citing statistics from the country's central bank. Venezuela has been selling its sizeable gold reserves, built up under...

    MADRID — Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s Socialist Party took a beating Sunday in an election in Andalusia that saw the far right win seats in one of the country’s regional parliaments for the first time in decades. The Socialists (PSOE) — which have ruled the southern region uninterrupted for 36 years — came in first but could lose their grip on power if parties on the right team up against them. Juanma Moreno — the local leader of the Popular Party — said as the results came in that he would try to replace the Socialists’ incumbent regional leader,...

    WASHINGTON — Nancy Pelosi is facing a renewed threat to her leadership of House Democrats from a group of moderates, creating a standoff that is highlighting emerging tensions between the emboldened left flank of her caucus and its expanded ranks of those in the middle. Nine Democrats in the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, an offshoot of the moderate think tank No Labels, are warning they could vote against Pelosi for House Speaker unless she agrees to rule changes that they say will help "break the gridlock" in Congress. Pelosi is expected to cruise through an internal Democratic caucus meeting on...

    Amazon employees at five the United Kingdom's largest warehouses are planning to stage rallies and protests on Black Friday to bring attention to their "inhumane conditions," Buzzfeed News reported. The protests are being staged by GMB Union who help negotiate on behalf of Amazon employees, although they aren't officially recognized. Other unions throughout Europe are coordinating similar protests in collaboration with GMB. Workers in Spain, Italy, Poland and Germany are planning to walk off the job on Friday when the internet giant is scheduled to have Black Friday deals. The main distribution centers who are protesting are in Rugeley, Milton...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-elected Congresswoman from New York and faux socialist in the $3,505 designer pantsuit, is backing the Justice Democrats — a socialist insurgent group within the Demonrat Party which opposes “Democratic incumbents who are demographically and ideologically out-of-touch with their districts.” Note: Just as the Left have corrupted the rainbow by appropriating it as an LGBT symbol, they’ve also corrupted the word “justice” by equating it with Marxist socialism, as in “social justice” and “Justice Democrats”.

    The Senate's top Democrat asked the Justice Department's watchdog on Tuesday to open an investigation into communications between acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and the White House. In a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Schumer said he wants IG investigators to look into whether Whitaker had access to confidential grand jury information in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Schumer also wants investigators to examine whether Whitaker shared any information with Trump or others in the administration. "I am also concerned that Mr. Whitaker, who has thus far declined to recuse himself from the Special Counsel investigation, may intend...

    Get ready for the Democrat Brawl that will pass off as the New Congress of 2019 Things are not nearly as kosher for House-winning Democrats as the mainstream and social media would have the masses believe. Rather than them celebrating the so-called results of the overhyped Blue Wave that failed to materialize, they’re scrambling to overturn Republican election night victories courtesy of surfacing boxes of ballots forcing recounts for which we already know the outcome.

    A band of House Democrats determined to oppose House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's speaker bid are planning to release a signed letter as soon as this week indicating that they have gathered enough support to deny her the 218 votes needed to win the gavel on the House floor in January. "This is a simple letter saying we want new leadership, which is what a vast majority of Democrats and the American people want," Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., a member of the group, told reporters Tuesday. Pelosi's critics argue that she has an increasingly apparent math problem. While she's expected...

    What was once known as the Democrat party, no longer exists The 2018 midterm elections are over and even taking historical election data into consideration, the question heard in many conservative circles is how in the hell, with the Republican-led economy so strong, did Democrats take control of the House? Answer - They didn’t. Healthcare concerns were an essential element in the midterms, but the topics that energized and mobilized the Democrat base in the 2018 midterms were not even on the radar in 2012 when President Barack Obama won his bid for a second term.

    Mad Maxine Waters… let that roll around in your mouth a bit. Can you taste it? This is a woman who, were she not a duly elected Democratic Party congresswoman, couldn’t get a job requiring her to ask, “Would you like fries with that?” But not to worry. She will only be the head of the Financial Services Committee in the House of Representatives. Financially, she obviously has done well for herself with mansions and servants and other accoutrements of great wealth that the Democrats always seem to acquire while serving the public in their destitute districts. What can anyone...

    President Donald Trump on Saturday used his final Florida campaign event before next week’s elections to implore supporters to send Republicans to the governor’s mansion and the U.S. Senate, claiming that allowing Democrats to win either office would bring ruin to the state he also calls home. Trump returned to Florida for the second time this week to help rally support for Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. Trump also sought to boost former Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is facing off against Andrew Gillum, the Democratic mayor of Tallahassee, in the race for governor. Trump argued...

OK, maybe not goodwill… Here’s the video, and be warned, there’s a lot of graphic language here.

Ask anybody outside of here. You go Port St. Lucie, Orlando … man them crackers ain’t gonna let us do that sh*t dawg. Boy, you crazy?” He went on, saying, “Gillum is a progressive. He is a part of the crazy, crazy, crazies.” Then the undercover reporter asked how Gillum plans to pay for many of his campaign promises, Smith said he couldn’t....

    U.S. Democratic leaders in Congress said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s call for unity after suspicious packages were sent to leading Democratic figures “ring hollow” because of his past statements that condone acts of violence. “Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions,” Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives top Democrat Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. They cited the Republican president’s “support for the congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get...

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-VT, is a communist. I learned this from a right-winger so extreme he can’t tell communists from socialists. Conservatives have now moved so far to the right that they label moderates as “socialists” and liberals as “communists.” Sanders doesn’t hide the fact he’s a socialist and a liberal. He’s a relic of a bygone era before the Right turned “socialist” and “liberal” into pejoratives akin to “terrorist” or “pedophile.” I once told a sensible conservative that I prefer socialists to fascists. His response — “How can you tell the difference?” —sounded clever, but it’s essentially nonsense...
