    The House of Representatives filed a motion Tuesday asking a federal court to block the construction of President Donald Trump's signature border wall through funds identified in his emergency declaration before it starts next month. "Absent this Court's timely intervention, defendants are poised to begin construction on the border wall next month, using funds that Congress declined to appropriate for that purpose," the filing reads. "This Court should therefore issue a preliminary injunction to prevent that irreparable injury to the House." The Democrat-led House sued earlier this month, arguing that Trump's decision to transfer funds from appropriated accounts to a...

    President Trump on Tuesday unloaded a barrage of criticism on "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough, labeling the talk-show host a "psycho" in a pair of tweets in which the president praised Fox News's "Fox & Friends" and also lashed out at a CNN host. In the tweets, Trump referred to the MSNBC morning show as a "really bad show with low ratings" that would "only get worse," before turning his ire to CNN host Chris Cuomo. "Sorry to say but @foxandfriends is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest...

    More states are ditching Christopher Columbus. Vermont and Maine are the latest to join the growing number of cities, states and municipalities that have renamed the October holiday for the people who lived in America long before the explorer arrived. The legislatures of both states passed bills last week that would change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day. The bills are awaiting the governors' signatures. ACLU of Maine Advocacy Director applauded the state's efforts.

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) argued Monday that all prisoners, including domestic terrorists like the Boston Marathon bomber, should have the right to vote while they are incarcerated. Speaking at a CNN town hall, Sanders was asked if he believes the right to vote should extend to serious criminals, such as Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is in prison and has been sentenced to death. “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” Sanders said. “They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when...

    One of President Donald Trump's picks to serve on the Federal Reserve Board has written that women should be banned from refereeing, announcing or beer vending at men's college basketball games, asking if there was any area in life "where men can take vacation from women." Stephen Moore, an economic commentator and former Trump campaign adviser, made those and similar comments in several columns reviewed by CNN's KFile that were published on the website of the conservative National Review magazine in 2001, twice in 2002 and 2003...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Sunday the Democratic House majority is determined to impeach President Trump, regardless of the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s now-concluded investigation into Russian election meddling. Lamenting what he called “extremism” on the part of the Democrats, Cruz cited remarks by House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) in an earlier segment on CNN's "State of the Union" that the House’s mandate goes beyond investigating crimes. Cruz added that the House "doesn't care about the basis" for impeachment. When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash whether he agreed with Trump’s frequent characterization of Mueller’s investigation as a...

    Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh (Ill.) said Monday that President Trump "needs" someone to challenge him in the 2020 Republican primary. “I think this president needs a challenge," Walsh said when asked by CNN's Brooke Baldwin if he would support a challenger to Trump. Walsh, a conservative radio host and frequent critic of Trump, made the comment while discussing his former colleagues' reaction to special counsel Robert Mueller's report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The report was released to the public last week, and Walsh criticized congressional Republicans for staying quiet about what Walsh called...

    Compare the legal backgrounds of Harvard's Alan Dershowitz versus sleazy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti. Who has the more distinguished career? Yet CNN chose Avenatti over Dershowitz for the go-to person for legal analysis of the Trump-Russia collusion probe. Why? Well, despite Avenatti falling way short in legal background compared to Dershowitz what qualified him to be an almost daily guest on CNN for a long period last year was that he promised the imminent demise of the presidency of Donald Trump. Alan Dershowitz described to Howard Kurtz on Fox News' MediaBuzz on Sunday how CNN which characterizes itself as the...

    The apotheosis of the Left’s 21st-Century lunacy is its insistence that disagreeing with leftist dogma–declining to accept the “trans” farce, for example–is “violence” that demands suppression, while actual violence by leftists like Antifa–bashing people in the head with a baseball bat, for instance–is merely free speech exercised by “protesters.” No one in the world, with the possible exception of a handful of mis-educated college professors and students, is dumb enough to be fooled by that inversion. But liberals soldier heedlessly on. Here is a today’s instance of the phenomenon. April Ryan, a CNN personality, suggested that Sarah Sanders’ head should...

But on Sunday the Flyers announced they had removed the statue, saying the team had discovered some of her songs contained racist lyrics and sentiments that were "incompatible" with the organization's values.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that she supported impeaching President Trump after reading the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on Thursday. “Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. Ocasio-Cortez added that she is signing on to Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) impeachment resolution. “While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction,” Ocasio-Cortez...

    In an interview in London for her new memoir "Becoming," former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a stinging assessment of the state of American politics and, specifically, of President Donald Trump. Said Obama: "We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled. Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad." The Independent, which reported on Obama's comments, said she offered that assessment in a joking manner. But joking or not, there's some real truth in Obama's...

    RUSH: One of the things CNN can’t let go of is the Mueller report says that Donald Trump told Jeff Sessions, quote (paraphrased), “I’m screwed. Oh, my God. I’m screwed. This is the end of my presidency,” when Mueller was appointed. Well, now, you can imagine how that is going to be analyzed and amplified on. “Well! (sputtering) That obviously means Trump knew he was guilty. It obviously meant the inspector was going to get to the bottom of it and that was the end of his presidency.” Again (snort), Robert Mueller concluded that there was no collusion between the...

    CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report. In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded...

Jerry Nadler on State of the Union this morning to chit chat about a variety of subjects from the Mueller report to Trump putting illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities. We’re wondering if Jake thinks Jerry is as full of it as we do when he stuttered through why he thinks it’s ‘illegal’ and wrong for Trump to place illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities, mainly because of the faces he makes during the interview.

    Chicago Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot said illegal immigrants are always welcomed to her city, even if President Trump is the one sending them there. On Friday, Trump confirmed reports that he was seriously considering relocating asylum seekers who exceeded their 20 days in custody to Democratically controlled sanctuary cities nationwide. Lightfoot, who was recently elected mayor, appeared on CNN and reaffirmed the sanctuary policies in her city. She dismissed Trump as being “provocative” and told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that her city has been dealing with asylum seekers for decades. Trump's threats are “much ado about nothing.”
  • Hopeful “Climate President” Jay Inslee Stumped By Basic Question On Recycling

    If you haven’t heard – and you probably haven’t – Washington Governor Jay Inslee is running for president. Additionally, he’s making environmentalism his signature issue. He thinks that embracing the eco-left is his ticket to the presidency, and he hopes he can become the “First Climate President.” Despite his apparent green credentials, Inslee was apparently dumbfounded at one of the most basic questions you can ask an environmentalist – how to recycle. During a CNN town hall this week, Inslee was asked how he’d improve the recycling system. As CNN explains, it was a “curious” moment for the candidate “whose...

    WASHINGTON (CNN)Two new polls from the states that will be the first to weigh in on the Democratic field next year show former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders continue to stand ahead of the rest of the field, and provide the best evidence yet that the small group of candidates standing just behind those two includes South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. A Monmouth University poll of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa, out Thursday, finds Biden at the top of the pack with 27% support, Sanders at 16%, Buttigieg at 9%, Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren at...

    NOW: Attorney General William Barr is testifying before a Congressional committee about the Justice Department’s budget. But it's not just the budget: Barr will likely be grilled on special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation, and Barr's short summary of it. He could also face questions about immigration and the border. Rep. Ed Case, a Democrat from Hawaii, just held up one of the most coveted documents of the Robert Mueller investigation as a prop to criticize what are sure to be the coming redactions. It's the Aug. 2017 memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to Mueller,...
