    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) — who is eyeing a 2020 presidential bid against President Trump — says the United States should be “welcoming” migrant caravans that arrive at the nation’s southern border. While campaigning for Democrats in Iowa, Harris told a CNN reporter that the U.S. response to the 7,000-strong migrant caravan of job-seekers and previously deported illegal aliens should be “welcoming” and “tolerant.” “We are a country that … our strength has always been that we are a tolerant country, that we are welcoming, in particular, those who have fled harm,” Harris said of the caravan. “And the idea...

    Hate is the only real message the Democrats want to convey Over the next several weeks, Americans will be going to the polls in the most eagerly anticipated and consequential midterm election in our nation’s history. Voters will decide whether to continue the President’s agenda which includes cutting regulations and taxes, boosting our military, renegotiating our trade deals, and focusing on border security. This agenda has produced incredible economic results in less than two years. This week, the World Economic Forum rated the United States as the most competitive economy among the 140 countries ranked. This is the first time...
  • Elizabeth Warren prodded by protesters to list Native Americans among 'people who don't have power'

    Protesters had to remind Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., not to overlook Native Americans as she listed groups of people she claims lack power in politics. "I am angry because of everyone who has lost power," Warren said at a Thursday demonstration against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington, D.C. Warren, a possible 2020 Democratic presidential contender, evoked African-Americans, Latinos, and members of the LGBTQ community as examples before some people in the crowd shouted out "Native Americans."

    Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said President Donald Trump’s values didn’t ”line up with most Americans.” Gillibrand said, “I think what happens in November is going to decide what our country looks like. I think this election is a referendum on President Trump. On the fact that he doesn’t represent most Americans. That his values don’t line up with most Americans. And so being heard in this election sets the stage for everything in the future.”

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” campaign strategist for former President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Steve Schmidt said, “40 percent of the country has surrendered their intellectual sovereignty to Donald Trump.” Schmidt said, “He’s pursuing the only strategy he can pursue, which is try to incite his base. As he incites that base, that base gets smaller, and the majority grows in opposition to Trump, but the smaller base is a harder more intense one. If you go back to inauguration day, Trump has less support today than he did then. His base is smaller. The Republican party...

    The vast majority of Americans support President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, according to a poll released on Monday that shows 71 percent approve. An even larger majority — 75 percent — see North Korea’s nuclear weapons program as a “major threat,” according to the Pew Research Center poll conducted in October. Pew reported: This share is as high as at any point since 2005. Around seven-in-ten Americans (71%) said the U.S. should take North Korea’s nuclear threats “very seriously.” Majorities also said North Korea is capable of launching a nuclear missile that could reach...

    Want to know why Israelis have little patience for Jewish Democrats? First, none of their leaders accepted the invitation to attend the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel's capital. Second, Bernie Sanders just agreed with Hamas that they have the right to return to Israel, which would spell the end of Israel. ..... So when Jewish Democrats wonder why Israel ignores their views on Israel or take their protests to be pro-Israel with a pinch of salt they will understand why. These actions from their political leaders are as lame as they were when they backed the awful...

    Americans are stressed out. People are plagued by financial anxiety, according to the results of an annual poll of 1,004 adults conducted by the American Psychiatric Association released Monday. This year’s national anxiety score — derived by mean scores on a scale of zero to 100 — is 51, a five-point jump since 2017. Two-thirds of respondents said they were extremely or somewhat anxious about paying their bills or expenses. Last year, 56 percent of people reported financial worries. But some people are more worried than others about finances. Women are more anxious than men and also had a greater...
  • Americans waste 150,000 tons of food per day: study

    Americans waste nearly 150,000 tons of food per day, amounting to about one pound (422 grams) per person, and fruits and vegetables are mostly what gets tossed, said a study Wednesday. The amount of land used annually to grow food that ends up in the garbage in the United States is 30 million acres, or seven percent of total US cropland. Some 4.2 trillion gallons of irrigation water gets wasted, too, said the report in the journal PLOS ONE. Fruits and vegetables made up 39 percent of total food waste, followed by dairy (17 percent), meat (14 percent) and grains...

    Over the decades, this quiet coastal hamlet has earned a reputation as one of the most liberal places in the nation. Arcata was the first U.S. city to ban the sale of genetically modified foods, the first to elect a majority Green Party city council and one of the first to tacitly allow marijuana farming before pot was legal. Now it's on the verge of another first. No other city has taken down a monument to a president for his misdeeds. But Arcata is poised to do just that. The target is an 8½-foot bronze likeness of William McKinley, who...

    Palestinian Arabs demonstrated in Ramallah on Thursday, demanding the closure of the America House which, is operated by the U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem and located in the city of Ramallah. The role of the America House, which is established in 2010, is to disseminate American culture. The protesters demanded the removal of American workers and the closure of their offices, in protest of the Trump administration's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and its intention to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by mid-May, in time for Israel’s 70th Independence Day....

    Moronic American Millennial students that socialism and communism starve their citizens either on purpose to keep them under strict control or through their disastrous economic policies I watched countless videos of Millennials interviewed on various campuses around the nation by people with knowledge of history or survivors of communism who were lucky enough to escape to this country or other western nations whose economies are based on the capitalist free market model and not the socialist one. In every video, the well-fed and cared for Millennials, in their indoctrinated and delusional rage, shout the praises of socialism and communism without...

    #BlowObama’sSpyCover to Make America Great Again The only upside of the outing of FBI/DoJ corruption is the one that blows the cover on who Barack Hussein Obama really was and is. Obama is the Spy Who Lives to Hate America, his main claim to fame; a dirty spy of the most scurrilous kind who used the presidential office to surveil his unsuspecting and much more worthy opponents; the spy looking through the bedroom keyhole in order to sabotage the freedom and liberty of a nation’s citizenry. In song there’s ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, in literature, ‘The Spy Who Came...

    President Trump’s approval rating jumped 10 points in January, rising to the highest level since soon after he was inaugurated. As Congressman Steve Stivers noted, “No president in their second year has seen their approval rating go up except this one.” Many were surprised that Trump has managed to break through the incessant opposition of a hostile media. Our explanation is that Trump lured the Democrats into a high-profile debate on the immigration issue, and the president won the debate because the public agrees with him. Democrats proved they are so committed to the principle of amnesty for illegal...

    Denver just decriminalized public defecation in order to make life easier for immigrants and the homeless. After decriminalizing defecating on sidewalks, the Chamber of Commerce will probably rename Denver as the “Mile High Pile City.”No Board of Health? That’s how diseases spread. Now every time I think of Denver I will see visions of poop and other body fluids on the sidewalk. People are required to dispose of dog poop and Denver is letting humans defecate any where they please.What’s disturbing as well is that they also decriminalized camping out on private land. So now you can go out to get...

    Americans Spend More Than Expected as Holiday Season Heats Up November retail sales up 0.8% from prior month; economists saw 0.3% increase By Sharon Nunn Updated Dec. 14, 2017 1:40 p.m. ET 27 COMMENTS WASHINGTON—Americans are spending more this holiday season than analysts expected, fueled by income gains, confidence in the economic outlook, buoyant financial markets and modest inflation. That includes spending at brick-and-mortar stores such as Walmart Inc. and Nordstrom Inc., which clocked the largest year-over-year November sales increase in seven years. Home-furnishing stores, electronics and appliance stores also posted strong spending numbers, despite competition from online shopping websites,...

    Nearly a year after the election of a president who promised Americans would win so much they would grow "tired of winning," a funny thing has happened in American politics — both sides think they're losing. That lose-lose mood, which is on display daily on Capitol Hill, is strongly reinforced by a study of public opinion released Tuesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. More than 6 in 10 Americans say they believe their side is losing more than it's winning on the issues that matter most; only about 1 in 4 think their side is mostly winning. That attitude...

That’s 11 million people living in the shadows whom we know next to nothing about. —Congressman Steve Israel, D-NY A “Fair Share” for the Shadows Progressives consistently claim that many American’s aren’t paying their fair share. Eating the Rich supposedly solves income inequality in every socialist utopia, yet as Jerry Brown and his progressive comrades have proven, eating the rich through higher taxes and progressive economic and open-border policies, have equalized income by making more Californians poor and dependent.
