    Benjamin Ryan Tillman (August 11, 1847 – July 3, 1918) was an American politician of the Democratic Party who served as Governor of South Carolina from 1890 to 1894, and a United States Senator from 1895 until his death in 1918. A white supremacist who opposed civil rights for black Americans, Tillman led a paramilitary group of Red Shirts during South Carolina's violent 1876 election. On the floor of the U.S. Senate, he frequently ridiculed black Americans, and boasted of having helped kill them during that campaign. In the 1880s, Tillman, a wealthy landowner, became dissatisfied with the Democratic leadership...

    A federal judge has raised speculation that Hillary Rodham Clinton and her State Department “colluded” to keep her missing emails secret from the public and courts, an escalation of scrutiny into Obama-era scandal. Senior District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth in a new memo also called the Clinton email affair “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” "Lamberth ruled: … the Court ORDERS the parties to meet and confer to plan discovery into (a) whether Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA; (b) whether the State Department’s...
  • Elizabeth Warren's hometown paper 'skeptical' of 2020 run: She 'missed her moment in 2016'

    (CNN) The Boston Globe published a searing editorial Thursday pouring cold water on the prospects of a presidential run for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2020, a stark contrast to the paper's call for her to seek the White House three years ago. "While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure," the Globe editorial reads. "A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump." The Globe, based in the state Warren represents, writes: "Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz with three other senators introduced a bill Wednesday that is aimed at fully funding a wall along the US-Mexico border... The WALL Act would fully fund the border wall by closing existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans.
  • Democrats: Campaign Finance Admission Should ‘Disqualify’ Incoming Congressman

    Rep.-elect Ross Spano’s Republican primary opponents are outraged, too. Revelations that GOP Rep.-elect Ross Spano violated campaign finance law by taking out personal loans and directing approximately the same amount to his campaign should disqualify him from serving in Congress, Florida Democrats say. Spano “knew exactly what he was doing when he took personal loans and used them as campaign funds, which is against the law,” Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo said in a statement earlier this week. “This matter needs to be fully investigated, and appropriate actions taken.” The freshman Republican acknowledged transgressing rules against straw donations in...

    Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and his allies are taking new steps toward launching a presidential campaign, including interviews with dozens of potential staffers and hiring a pollster and national fundraiser, according to a person close to the Democrat.He’s already launched a political action committee that allows him to raise money nationally and hired his 2014 campaign manager, Brad Komar, to run it. Since the PAC was formed in September, Komar has done 80 interviews with possible campaign staffers, the person said. Of those, Hickenlooper has conducted or participated in 30 interviews. The operation has hired Democratic veteran Anna Greenberg as...

    Well, it’s official. Trump has beaten his first Democratic opponent, and I use that term generously. Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has decided he’s not running for president in 2020. BASTA! Yeah, we’ve all had enough of this clown, even Democrats—who are probably secretly fuming that he inserted himself into the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation fight with a nut job who had a totally unbelievable and completely unsubstantiated story that the judge was part of a gang rape ring in high school. The two other women who had accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct also had similar shoddy stories that...

    Michael Avenatti announced that he is out of the race for president in 2020 even though he never officially entered the race to begin with. Avenatti became a household name as Stormy Daniels attorney in her legal battles with President Donald Trump. Because the lawyer had such a contentious relationship with the president, many hinted that he should run for president against Trump in 2020. Of course, Avenatti did nothing but add fuel to those fires by making visits to Iowa and posting several heavyhanded tweets.

    Election night was painful for California Republicans, but it was nothing compared to the slow torture we’ve endured ever since. For three agonizing weeks, Republicans have watched registrars update their tallies with late absentee and provisional ballots. From Orange County to the Bay Area, it’s the same story playing out with different candidates: Democrats flipping seats with late ballots. First, Mimi Walters. Then, Young Kim. Now, David Valadao. It’s not unusual for late absentee and provisional ballots to break against Republicans. What is unusual is the scale of the carnage. As of this writing, Republicans lost election night leads for...

    The email accounts of leading National Republican Congressional Committee officials were hacked during the 2018 midterm election, according to a report. The email accounts of four senior aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were surveilled for several months, party officials said. The intrusion was detected in April by an NRCC vendor, who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor. An internal investigation was initiated and the FBI was alerted to the attack, said the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss the incident. Politico, citing unnamed party officials, reports the culprit surveilled the emails accounts of four top NRCC aides...

    The National Republican Congressional Committee said Tuesday it suffered a major hacking attack during the 2018 election. “The NRCC can confirm that it was the victim of a cyber intrusion by an unknown entity,” NRCC spokesman Ian Prior told Fox News. “The cybersecurity of the committee’s data is paramount, and upon learning of the intrusion, the NRCC immediately launched an internal investigation and notified the FBI, which is now investigating the matter.” Prior added: “To protect the integrity of that investigation, the NRCC will offer no further comment on the incident.” The NRCC is the committee dedicated to electing House...

    AUSTIN, Texas — U.S. leaders say Vladimir Putin used a familiar cyber playbook to “muck around” in the midterm elections last month, but intelligence officials and key lawmakers believe a much more sinister, potentially devastating threat lies just down the road — one that represents an attack on reality itself. Policy insiders and senators of both parties believe the Russian president or other actors hostile to the U.S. will rely on “deep fakes” to throw the 2020 presidential election cycle into chaos, taking their campaign to influence American voters and destabilize society to a new level. The eerie process, which...

    Since November 2016, the media and the progressive left have been pounding the same two claims. The first is that Donald Trump was not really elected, since Hillary Clinton got more popular votes. The second is that anyone who voted for Mr. Trump or supports him today is a white male supremacist bigot. And probably homophobic and xenophobic to boot. Regardless of actual race or sex. Regarding the first claim, Hillary’s national margin of 2.8 million votes can be explained entirely by California, which has become a one-party, socialist state with enormous potential for vote fraud. Mrs. Clinton collected 4.3...

    Broward County incident reports and photo evidence prove conclusively that Broward County election workers broke the law in numerous instances during the 2018 election. As Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes fights to hold onto her pension, the conduct of poll workers is coming under scrutiny, including a poll worker at Lauderhill mall, where Snipes’ office is based. The incident reports describe poll workers telling voters how to vote, touching their ballots, handing out Democratic flyers to voters, allowing people to bring Democrat advertisements inside and to use their phones, and encouraging people to fill out blank spaces on ballots at...

    Musician Kanye West told reporters at the White House on Thursday that a "welfare mentality" led him to accuse former President George W. Bush of racism after Hurricane Katrina. "I was very emotional, and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality. Of a welfare mentality," West said, sitting across from President Trump in the Oval Office. West, wearing a Trump campaign hat, said the concept of racism was used by Democrats to control voters.

    It’s coming, folks; they’ve been laying down the groundwork for years. Yes, Democrats said that they’re not running on impeaching Trump, its bad politics, and how it’s not on the table…right now. Don’t be fooled; it’s going to happen. It may not be in the first 100 days of the next Congress or maybe later, but one way or another, there has to be a serious push to impeach the president because they don’t like him. The liberal base hates him—and they want resistance antics 24/7 now that the Democrats have retaken the House. Removing Trump doesn’t have a prayer...

    Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MI) won her runoff election last night over Democrat Mike Espy in Mississippi, so Republicans have a solid 53-47 majority. No longer will we have to deal with the Murkowski-Collins question when it come sot tight votes of judicial and Supreme Court nominations. We can run the table on paper, but we have a Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) problem. Yeah, Mr. Flake, the perpetual pain in the rear end of the Senate GOP, isn’t budging from his position of blocking Trump’s judicial nominees until a vote on a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the...

    Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin suggested that if President Donald Trump decides not to run for re-election in 2020, he should pardon every one of special counsel Robert Mueller’s targets. “This Mueller investigation is one of the greatest abuses of power in modern American history,” Levin said.
