    According to Fox News: The sex-crimes prosecutor Republicans hired to question Brett Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford at Thursday’s hearing told senators the case would not hold up in a courtroom, sources told Fox News—guidance that could prove critical as wavering lawmakers prepare to vote.
  • Cory Booker made a bold move on the Senate floor, and now Twitter can't stop making fun of him

    It started out as brilliant political bad-assery: U.S. Sen. Cory Booker warned his colleagues on the Senate judiciary committee vetting U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that he would violate Senate rules and release a confidential document about the federal judge's views on racial profiling. "The fact that there's nothing in that document that's personal information, nothing national security related, the fact that it was labeled 'committee confidential' exposes that this process is a bit of a sham," said Booker, throwing shade at U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman. Then Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, really threw down, challenging...

    US president Donald Trump said on Friday he had cancelled secretary of state Mike Pompeo’s planned trip to North Korea because “we are not making sufficient progress” toward the goal of denuclearising the Korean peninsula. Mr Trump said in a message on Twitter that Mr Pompeo’s visit, which was set for next week, now would likely not take place until after Washington has resolved its trade dispute with China. Mr Trump said China was no longer helping on the North Korea issue. It was a dramatic shift of tone for Mr Trump, who had previously hailed his June summit with...

    There's word from the war Saudi Arabia is conducting in Yemen against the Houthis who heavily populate the northern part of the country and are supported by Iran. A bomb supplied by the United States was used in an air attack on a school bus recently that killed 51 people including 40 children. It was a laser guided Mk 82 bomb manufactured by defense contractor Lockheed Martin according to the lettering on it. This news report has political overtones since CNN is behind it noting that former President Barack Obama banned the sale of these kind of bombs after an...
  • TSA's 'Quiet Skies' Program Tracks, Observes Travelers In The Air

    Some Americans have been trailed and closely monitored by undercover air marshals as they traveled on U.S. flights, as part of a previously undisclosed Transportation Security Administration program called Quiet Skies. The existence of the program was first reported Saturday by the The Boston Globe, citing an internal TSA bulletin from March as well as anonymous sources within the department. The Globe says the program targets travelers who are not on terrorist watch lists and are not suspected of a crime. Some air marshals involved have expressed misgivings about the domestic surveillance program, questioning whether it's legal and whether it's...

    "I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David," Cohen said in the recording, likely a reference to American Media head David Pecker. Trump interrupts Cohen asking, "What financing?" according to the recording. When Cohen tells Trump, "We'll have to pay." Trump is heard saying "pay with cash" but the audio is muddled and it's unclear whether he suggests paying with cash or not paying. Cohen says, "no, no" but it is not clear what is said next. No payment was ever made from Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the President's attorney,...

  • Comey Cited as ‘Insubordinate,’ but Report Finds No Bias in F.B.I. Decision to Clear Clinton

    The New York Times ^ | June 14, 2018 | Matt Apuzzo, Nicholas Fandos and Charlie Savage
    The former F.B.I. director James B. Comey was “insubordinate” in his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, a critical Justice Department report has concluded, according to officials and others who saw or were briefed on it. But the report, by the department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, does not challenge the decision not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton. Nor does it conclude that political bias at the F.B.I. influenced that decision, the officials said. “We found no evidence that the conclusions by department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations,” the report said,...

    Trump: Talking to Kim Jong Un a waste, 'will do what needs to be done' President Trump on Sunday sounded a war drum over North Korean leader Kim Jong Un refusing to abandon his nuclear weapons program, telling Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to stop wasting time negotiating with Kim because the U.S. “will do what needs to be done.” “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” tweeted Trump, using his mocking nickname for Kim. “Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be...

    Hillary to Dump Bill Globe (T/F)? Furious Hillary Clinton has dumped horndog hubby Bill — once and for all — after discovering a hidden love nest atop his presidential library in Little Rock, Ark., where he beds starstruck beauties! Now fed-up Hillary — who lost to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election — is talking to lawyers and demanding a $350 million divorce settlement, sources say. “Hillary doesn’t need Bill anymore — and his secret, taxpayer-funded sex den was the final humiliation,” says a source. “She confronted Bill and told him: ‘It’s OVER!’ ” President Barack Obama’s former secretary...

  • Wisconsin Recount Day 2 Totals: Trump Inches Further Ahead in Dec. 3 Numbers Update

    Wisconsin recount totals for day 2 show that Donald Trump has inched ahead by a couple additional votes. Three to be exact. The Wisconsin Election Commission posts recount data on a spreadsheet every day. The latest spreadsheet totals as of 1:30 p.m. CST on December 3 show that the recount isn’t changing much, although a smattering of errors have been found throughout the state. The candidates each lost and gained a smattering of votes in towns, cities, and villages that are reporting, so any losses were basically cancelled out. The Election Commission doesn’t tally the returns, but, rather, just posts...

  • Cruz Campaign Capitalizes on Carson's In experience

    Virginia Right ^ | 11/28/2015 | Opinion Staff
    Senator Cruz continues to capitalize on Dr. Ben Carson’s inexperience, gaining ground against Carson in Massachusetts. In October, Massachusetts polling data showed Trump with 48%, Carson with 14%, Rubio with 12%, and Cruz with only 5%. In one month, Trump has dropped to 32%, Rubio up to 18%, Cruz at 10%, and Carson dropping all the way to 5%. Now, this early polling in Massachusetts isn't a good gauge of anything in a vacuum, but considering what we're seeing in other polls, it appears that Senator Cruz is directly siphoning off votes from Carson. Obviously, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson...
