    The Federalist ^ | 06/21/2017 | By Josh Shepherd
    Many are still seeking to understand this unpredictable president—what he’s accomplished, how he’s failed, and the hard truths both sides refuse to admit. It seems no American is neutral on Donald Trump. The chasm dividing liberals and conservatives grows wider with every tweet and new investigation, only reinforced by partisan media.The public square has been reduced to a shouting match. From music artists to business leaders, many on the Left mandate strict resistance to the Trump presidency. Meanwhile, some on the Right use war imagery to encourage firm loyalty over any criticism of the administration. Yet many are still seeking...
  • Trump Wins YUGE in a Government Shutdown

    We’re looking at a possible government shutdown next Saturday, and that’s got some conservatives nervous. They shouldn’t be. Admittedly, past government shutdowns — or threats of shutdowns — have worked against conservatives. With Trump, however, it would likely be a different story.... even a partial shutdown plays precisely into the Trump agenda and his campaign promises of draining the swamp. Trump’s base, as well as “swing voters” who are fed up with out of control spending, would, of course, be cheered by such a move. Moreover, such a shutdown plays into Trump’s hands by giving him every excuse to slash...

    “If Trump were ever elected, we’d have to build a wall around California to defend ourselves from the rest of this country,” he said at a dinner held in Sacramento by the California Labor Federation and State Building and Construction Trades Council of California, according to the Sacramento Bee. “By the way that is a joke,” he added. “We don’t like walls, we like bridges.” Brown was touting the state’s economic progress, and the influx of young, talented tech workers — though the state has experienced net out-migration for decades, especially of middle-class families. The governor blasted “old white guys”...

    So this is the latest Republican establishment (GOPe) talking point… Former Governor John Sununu, a Jeb Bush supporter, told America’s Newsroom if Donald Trump only wins New Hampshire by 12 points he loses–Keep telling yourself that, John. “I think Trump will win. I don’t think he’ll win by as much as he thinks he is and as much as the polls say. If he doesn’t win by 12 points I think the perception will be that he lost.’
  • Trump-less Fox News Debate Gets Second Lowest Ratings for GOP (Half the Viewers of 1st Debate)

    newsmax ^ | 29 Jan 16
    The first Republican presidential debate of the season without front-runner Donald Trump generated smaller viewer interest than all but one of this cycle's prior GOP gatherings, according to preliminary Nielsen estimates — but still drew four times as many viewers as Trump's competing event. In the metered-market overnights, which represent 56 of the nation's largest markets, Fox News Channel's debate from Iowa averaged an 8.4 household rating. This is up vs. the 7.4 overnight rating for the most recent GOP debate, on Fox Business Network earlier this month, but it stands as the second lowest-rated of the six Republican gatherings...

    Only 216 Republicans voted to re-elect a humbled Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner as Speaker of the U.S. House on Tuesday, as many Republicans voted for alternative candidates in the second organized attempt to unseat Boehner in as many speakership elections. He wins re-election as Speaker with less than a majority of the House, something that has happened only four times since 1917. A total of 25 Republicans in the chamber did not vote for Boehner, with 24 voting for alternative candidates and others who were not nominated and one voting present. Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rod Blum (R-IA), Dave...

    SAN DIEGO — Republican City Councilman Kevin Faulconer defeated Democratic Councilman David Alvarez in the San Diego mayor’s race Tuesday night. Faulconer had 55.2 percent compared to Alvarez’s 44.8 percent with 86 percent of the city's precincts counted. A jubilant Faulconer gave a speech to his supporters about 10:40 p.m. but stopped short of declaring victory. “We know that this city has gone through a lot in the last year, but we knew that as San Diegans that we were better than that and that we were going to come together when we had the opportunity to do that and...

    Obamacare wins: SCOTUS upholds individual mandate Posted: 6/28/2012 10:21:48 AM The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The decision means the historic overhaul will continue to go into effect over the next several years, affecting the way that countless Americans receive and pay for their personal medical care. The ruling also handed Obama a campaign-season victory in rejecting arguments that Congress went too far in requiring most Americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty. Chief Justice John Roberts announced the court's judgment that allows the...

    Burma's Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has won a by-election for parliament, her party says, after a landmark vote that saw 45 seats contested.

    ORLANDO, Fla. — Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain won the Presidency 5 straw poll here Saturday, delivering a blow to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s front-runner status and a victory for a candidate who has struggled to transform his grass-roots popularity into strong showings in national polls. “Tonight’s winner is Herman Cain,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced. “It shows you something: The road to the White House comes through Florida, and it pays to spend time here.” Mr. Cain received 37 percent of the more than 2,600 votes cast. “Thank you to the Republican voters for this incredible honor of...

    Six Republican state senators face a recall vote today in Wisconsin. Two senate Fleebaggers face recall elections next week. Democrats need to pick up three seats to gain control of the Wisconsin senate. By the way, a liberal Chicago donor sent $200,000 to fund the far left recall candidates. The turnout was heavy today. JS Online has election results. The AP also has election results UPDATE: It’s unlikely that democrats will win District 2 or District 10. The Republicans are too far ahead with nearly half the precincts reporting. State Senate – District 2 – General August 09, 2011 –...

    DAIA request for the injunction lists some 76 websites which it says are 'highly discriminatory,' including some which deny the Holocaust. The umbrella organization of Argentina's Jewish community, DAIA, has won an injunction against Google, preventing the world's most popular search engine from "suggesting" anti-Semitic and racist websites to its users. The presiding judge at the Buenos Aires court, Dr. Molina Portela, also ruled that Google cannot run adverts on these websites, which are illegal under Argentine law.

    Results from Wisconsin counties show a conservative state Supreme Court justice has won re-election in a race seen as a referendum on Republican Gov. Scott Walker's divisive union rights law. County tallies show Justice David Prosser defeated JoAnne Kloppenburg by 7,316 votes. State election officials must review those numbers before declaring an official winner. They say they won't start that process until Kloppenburg has a chance to request a recount. She has until Wednesday. Kloppenburg, a little-known state attorney, got a boost after supporters worked to turn anger over the union law against Prosser. The race was too close to...

Mike Huckabee came in a close second place, taking 23 percent. Newt Gingrich, who actually spoke to the conference’s...
