    With rising unilateralism challenging its very existence, the United Nations convenes its annual meeting of world leaders Monday and will try once more to tackle problems together as a community of nations, addressing threats ranging from Mideast conflicts to the effects of global warming — and also encouraging the glimmer of hope over the nuclear standoff in North Korea. This year, 133 world leaders have signed up to attend the General Assembly session, a significant increase from last year’s 114. Secretary-General António Guterres called the expected large turnout “eloquent proof of the confidence of the international community in the United...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown ramped up his criticism of President Trump in an interview that aired Monday – calling the president a “saboteur” in the fight to combat climate change and saying that “something’s got to happen to this guy.” Speaking to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell at an environmental summit in San Francisco last week, Brown tore into Trump for the president’s controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria and urged voters to vote for Democrats in November’s midterm elections in an effort to thwart Trump’s agenda. “We never had a president who was...

    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

    And the Democratic Party has not actually become a band of radical leftists Conventional wisdom says that the middle is disappearing from American politics: The Republicans have moved far to the right, the Democrats far to the left, and woe to any moderate voters looking for politicians to represent their views. Well, the conventional wisdom is wrong. The Democrats have not actually become radical leftists, or anything close to it. You keep hearing this story partly because Republicans have an obvious interest in promoting it and partly because large parts of the news media find it irresistible. It’s a “both...

    BALDWIN, N.Y. — A woman has been taken into custody after police say she fabricated a story about a Trump-related hate crime on New York's Long Island. On Friday, Adwoa Lewis, 19, gave detectives a written statement stating she was driving home on Sept. 2 when four teenagers confronted her, police said. Lewis alleged the teens yelled “Trump 2016!” and said she didn’t belong here. She further claimed she parked her car in front of her house, and when she woke up, she found a slashed tire and a note on her car that stated, “Go home,” according to police....

    Let’s hope Democrats do not win the mid-term elections for if they do the actions of the last few weeks will be a mere foreshadowing of what we can expect for the next two years. They will stop at nothing in the 2020 election to defeat Trump During this age of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats sink to new levels of lunacy every day. As Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to encourage liberals to harass Trump administration officials and supporters, several crazed activists have gone too far. This week, a GOP office in Wyoming was set on fire by an arsonist,...

    Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed. Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to...

    There are critical points about the 70th Emmy Awards to keep in mind, starting with this: The ceremony airs Monday. Typically held on a Sunday, it was punted one day so this year’s host network, NBC, could accommodate its “Sunday Night Football” franchise (New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, for viewers inclined toward that spectacle). As for what the 8-11 p.m. EDT awards telecast will offer, the basics are 26 categories with nominees including defending drama champ “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It’s challenged by 2016 winner “Game of Thrones,” which aired outside the eligibility window for last year’s awards and wants...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Sunday that he believes President Trump and his lawyers are "terrified" at the prospect of what former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort could tell prosecutors as part of a new cooperation agreement. "They may think they know what Manafort has to say because he was part of that joint defense agreement, but they have to know that he may not have told them the full truth," Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "They’re terrified of what he has to say," he continued. "I’m surprised that we...

    Paul McCartney slams Trump in new song: 'We've got a mad captain sailing this boat' By Aris Folley - 09/15/18 10:48 PM EDT Paul McCartney revealed in a recent interview that he took aim at President Trump in his new solo album, dubbing him the "mad captain" in one of his songs. During an interview with BBC published Thursday, the former Beatles bandmate said he took swipes at several climate-change deniers, including Trump, in a track, titled “Despite Repeated Warnings,” on his new album, “Egypt Station,” which was released earlier this month. The track includes verses like “despite repeated warnings...

    USA Today reports that during a question and answer session, an audience member asked Jamie Lee Curtis if she gets scared. “You know, life’s a little scary. I live in America,” she replied. “This (expletive’s) getting real, so I’m scared every day.” Curtis starred as Laurie Strode in the original 1978 Halloween and will play the same character in this year’s reboot, which will hit theaters next month. Curtis has been an outspoken progressive for years. She endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, saying that she “played my woman’s card.”

    Conservative commentator and outspoken "Never Trump" critic Bill Kristol says he is building a "war machine" within the Republican party to challenge President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, according to CNBC. Kristol told the network that he's preparing "for a primary run against Trump," adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates. Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state. Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered. “We are thinking of and...

    A surefire ideological Kool-Aid test? Those who think Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was wounded during his hearings have heavily imbibed. Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee set out to prove that Kavanaugh is a mendacious political hack with the strategy of acting like mendacious political hacks. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., offered to sacrifice his political career in a move obviously calculated to serve his political career -- boldly releasing "confidential" committee documents that had already been released and that did nothing to prove Kavanaugh's unfitness. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., hinted darkly at the malignant influence of the Federalist Society...

    A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.

    I have several associates that deep in the tank Democrats. They are having a really rough time right now. One who is a socialist is deeply depressed. As they are slowly realizing the Muller investigation is a huge nothingburger and that the impeachment of Trump is but a pipe dream they are severely depressed. One would think that they should be filled with glee about riding that huge blue wave that is supposed to arrive in November. But alas they have also come to realize that is this another dream that is turning into a nightmare. I personally cannot wait...

    As if the media hadn’t already covered itself in shame this week by using 9/11 to malign President Trump, it is now using Hurricane Florence as a cudgel with which to beat him. Yesterday, The Washington Post’s editorial board ran a piece titled, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” Complicit. You read that right. But they weren’t through. “When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit,” it read. “He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any...

    In a school shooting incident that you absolutely won’t hear about on CNN, a leftist professor decided that it would be a good idea to express his anger toward President Trump by shooting himself in a campus restroom. With the nation’s colleges now having been completely taken over by radicals who are able to brainwash receptive young minds with their hatred of capitalism and promotion of cultural Marxism, institutions of higher learning now serve as incubators for the raging anti-Americanism that has manifested itself on the socialist left. One of those “educators” apparently just had too much and in what...
