    WASHINGTON — The top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee is sounding the alarm about the new powers that President Donald Trump has granted to Attorney General William Barr. Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, in a letter obtained by The Associated Press, said he fears Trump is giving Barr “the right to selectively declassify certain information for purposes of political gain.” He asked that the leaders of the nation’s spy agencies contact lawmakers if Barr’s investigation threatens their work.

    Since the inauguration of Donald Trump, the liberal media's daily reporting routinely defaults to an all too familiar word: "bombshell." Most every news segment begins with "bombshell," and it is certain (in their collective opinion) to end the Trump presidency. No luck so far! Failed media munitions aside, the rise of liberal rhetoric is at near deafening decibels, and for good reason. Attorney General Bill Barr's congressional hearing testimony (on two separate occasions) has no doubt caused Democrats angst and discomfort. In addition, DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz recently confirmed that his office is continuing its investigation, pertaining to the...
  • 2020 Went From "Slam Dunk" To "Trouble" For Dems; "AOC Does Not Speak For The Democratic Party"

    Former DNC chairman Ed Rendell (D-PA) advised 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to look toward the center and not to the far left. "I think all of a sudden, the 2020 election went from a slam dunk for Democrats to something where we're going to have trouble beating this guy because he's going to make Democratic socialism swing to the left, which I don't think is real, but he's going to make it into the issue," the former governor told CNN on Thursday. "AOC does not speak for the Democratic party," Rendell said of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her growing...

    WASHINGTON — It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign. Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later. It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong. “Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living deja vu,”...
  • Trump’s improved standing, energized GOP voters worry Democrats

    After months of confidence that public discontent with President Trump would lift Democrats back to power in Congress, some party leaders are fretting that their advantages in this year’s midterms are eroding amid a shifting political landscape. Driving their concerns are Trump’s approval rating, which has ticked upward in recent weeks, and high Republican turnout in some recent primaries, suggesting the GOP base remains energized. What’s more, Republicans stand to benefit politically from a thriving economy and are choosing formidable candidates to take on vulnerable Democratic senators. One of their biggest sources of anxiety is the Senate race in Florida,...

    MSNBC Host Worries Texas Will Use Hurricane to Deport Illegal Immigrants By Kyle Drennen | August 25, 2017 4:05 PM EDT In an interview with Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Friday about the state’s preparations for Hurricane Harvey, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle outrageously attempted to inject her liberal politics into the discussion as she asked: “How about risk of deportation for those undocumented immigrants that could be in the way of the storm’s path? Are they in the clear to go to some of these evacuation centers? Do they have to show ID?” The Republican governor promptly dispelled her irresponsible...

    Democrats are on edge over Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming book that is likely to dredge up the controversies surrounding her 2016 defeat to President Trump, just as the out-of-power party is trying to "move on" and chart a course back to the majority. The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady who added Democratic presidential nominee to her resume last year apparently isn’t done with public life. She plans to release her book, “What Happened,” next month. But Bloomberg reports that Democrats are privately concerned that Clinton’s book will help Trump, by fueling his case that Democrats are going...

    Although the liberal media is purposely avoiding the fact that the Trump-Russia collusion investigation is, as CNN's Van Jones noted in a candid moment, a big "nothing burger" most of the public has already reached that conclusion. Thus far Bob Mueller and his team of Democrat-donating investigators have only come up with a quickie inconclusive 20 minute meeting between Donald Trump, Jr. and a Russian lawyer. Hardly time for "collusion." This might explain why they are now on a fishing expedition for matters completely unrelated to Russia. Meanwhile the public appears to be fed up with the Russia investigation to...

    The Trump administration’s implementation of the so-called travel ban could prevent scores of refugees from coming to Connecticut as planned, although they have been fully vetted and await only a date to resettle in the country, advocates said late last week. Local Muslims, meanwhile, worried that last week’s Supreme Court decision partly approving the 90-day travel ban for visitors from six mostly Muslim countries, and Trump’s restrictive refugee policies, will increase anti-Muslim sentiment in the country. Zarina Mohamed, a Bethel resident born in Yemen, one of the six designated countries, never thought the ban would be reinstated after two federal...

    Over the past year or so, Donald Trump has solidified his image as a fundamentally blue-collar president—a relatable vehicle, despite his personal wealth, for the tastes and concerns of America’s white working class. Trump is “a poor person’s idea of a rich person,” Fran Leibowitz declares. “They see him. They think, ‘If I were rich, I’d have a fabulous tie like that. Why are my ties not made of 400 acres of polyester?’ All that stuff he shows you in his house—the gold faucets—if you won the powerball lottery, that’s what you’d buy.” His gauche décor, his blunt and blustering...

    Earlier today Ed wrote about the left’s struggle to find something with which to attack Judge Gorsuch. So far it seems they have been able to come up with very little. But at least one leading faction on the left is demanding Gorsuch be kept off the Supreme Court. A coalition of 55 groups who support abortion, including NARAL and Planned Parenthood, have sent a letter to Senators warning he represents a “grave danger” to “our constitutional rights.” Politico published the letter which reads in part: We implore senators to do everything necessary to block this nomination. Gorsuch has demonstrated...

    Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY)suggested on Monday that President Trump does not have the mental capacity to serve as commander in chief. “This is not somebody, in my mind, who is emotionally stable enough to be president of the United States,” he said on MSNBC on Monday. “I have real serious concerns about this.” Specifically, the representative wants a president who will take a 3:30 a.m. phone call, but will not stay up all night tweeting. “I think that’s what we have,” Yarmuth said. “We have a president who is up all night, who’s tweeting at all kinds of crazy hours,...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We have panic starting to set in in the Democrat Party and in the Drive-By Media. President Obama is out claiming that people not voting for Hillary, men not voting for Hillary, is due to sexism and that men need to try to get past that. Well, what was it when men didn't vote for her in 2008 when he opposed her in the primary on the Democrat side? Was it sexism then, that men didn't vote for Hillary back in 2008? We also have polling data that is throwing things upside down. Here's one of the...
  • Team Clinton Panics As Trump Support Surges In Pennsylvania

    Two weeks ago, the Clinton campaign was confident they had locked up Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral votes. Last week that confidence was lessened somewhat as Trump saw a solid bump in polling data. Today that confidence has all but vanished, replaced with panic as Donald Trump is now within striking distance to do what no Republican presidential candidate has done since 1988 – win Pennsylvania. Today’s most recent polling data from Axiom Strategies shows Clinton with a narrow lead of just 2 points over Trump in Pennsylvania – within the margin of error. Last week that lead was three,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton's campaign is confronting an emerging risk to her presidential ambitions - if Donald Trump continues to trail her in opinion polls many Democrats may simply stay at home on Election Day. Without enough popular support, Clinton would enter the White House lacking the political capital she would need to drive through her agenda. In the worst-case scenario it could cost her the presidency if Republicans turn out in big numbers on Nov. 8. Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has spent much of her campaign sounding the alarm over the prospect of a President Trump. She has...

    At their third annual joint conference, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and George Washington University (GWU) held a meeting on GWU’s campus last week. CIA Director John Brennan gave the opening remarks and interestingly enough, mentioned that the humanitarian and refugee crises concern the CIA's analysts. Also in his opening remarks, he estimated that up to 35 years of development has been set back due to the current Syrian civil war. He spoke about the perceived secrecy surrounding the CIA, “The American people have the right to know” what the government is doing, and made a veiled reference to exiled...

    With the presidential race staggering into its final stretch, the once inconceivable prospect of a Trump victory is becoming, if not likely, then definitely possible. (As of this writing, FiveThirtyEight gives Trump a 42.4 percent chance of prevailing, though that might change by the time you read this.) As that reality sets in, a hallucinatory sense of slow-motion doom is descending on many liberals. (Though not only on liberals.) Victims of Trump-induced anxiety describe nightmares, insomnia, digestive problems, and headaches. Therapists find themselves helping their patients through a process that feels less like an election than a national nervous breakdown....

Charlie Crist said he is voting for Hillary Clinton because she is "honest." “They LOL'd," Uygur said. "That's literally a LOL." The prominent Bernie Sanders supporter said it is time for the "Democratic establishment" to admit that they were wrong, that Sanders was the stronger candidate, and if he had been nominated he would be winning right now. "We’ve got 48 days to Armageddon," Uygur said about Trump's impending victory over Clinton. "Get your head out of your--... let’s...

    The Young Turks‘ Cenk Uygur issued a rebuke to Democrats who were assured that Hillary Clinton was a sure bet to beat Trump. Uygur was responding to footage of a Florida crowd breaking out in laughter when Democratic congressional candidate Charlie Crist said at a debate that Clinton was “honest.” Crist is a former Republican and also former Florida governor. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “They LOL’d literally. That’s a LOL,” Uygur said. He continued, “Democratic party establishment, you knuckleheads. What have you done? What have you done? You thought that she was the better candidate.” He noted that Florida, the home of the...
  • She's lost it: Hillary tweeted 49x yesterday, up from 46 the day before.

    Guys I just went through Hillary's Twitter feed. I'm telling you she has lost it. Bad. She tweeted 49 TIMES yesterday and 46 times the day before. This is an unreal amount of tweeting. She is obsessed with Trump and completely unglued by his "major announcement" today. She knows she is in trouble. Trump is a very prolific tweeter, and he tweeted 9 times today and 10 times the previous day.
