    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that if she steps down now, President Obama would not be able to appoint an acceptable replacement. Ginsburg, who reiterated that she has no imminent plans to retire, told Elle that it would be next to impossible for the Senate to confirm a new justice to the court who she would approve of. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court," she...

    Trump spoke privately with McConnell on Friday night following the news of Ginsburg’s death, laying out his preferences for who should replace the liberal justice, according to several people familiar with the conversation. In the phone call, Trump said he liked Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and Barbara Lagoa of the 11th Circuit, according to two people briefed on the discussion. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose details of a private conversation.

    A former Democratic aide has reportedly left his post as director of public policy at Twitter to join former Vice President Joe Biden's transition team. Carlos Monje left Twitter's Washington, D.C. office Thursday, according to Politico, after helping to host a fundraiser for the Democratic nominee this week. The outlet reported that Monje has served on Biden's infrastructure policy committee, although it's unclear what his role will be on the transition team.

    Even as gun violence breaks records in New York City, Chicago, and Philly, the Democrats don’t have much to say about the epidemic of shootings or their pet cause, gun control. While activist Democrat prosecutors like Attorney General Letitia James have neglected to deal with the violence and are instead targeting the NRA, they aren’t really talking about gun control. Mass shootings are rarely mentioned anymore even though there are more of them than ever. A Washington D.C. mass shooting at a cookout last month that wounded 20 people was treated as another local crime story. And there are a...
  • Democrats may not trust the results of the election if Trump wins [WaPo]

    Concern is rising about what would happen if President Donald Trump loses the November election and refuses to concede, perhaps by claiming victory based on early returns before the mail-in ballots are counted or through some similar maneuver. Would his supporters in this "doomsday scenario" take to the streets and Trump refuse to leave office? These are real worries. But there's another one that looms almost as large and gets far less attention: Would Democrats and others on the left accept the presidential results as legitimate if Trump wins? There's reason to believe they might not - and there are...
  • Ben Sasse Signals Support for Investigation Into Ivanka Trump’s Personal Email Use

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”

    There is great confusion in the GOP ranks and the media about the likelihood of a third candidate running. Multiple sources confirm there are several groups with access to funding, in communication with one another, working on a third-party run. It is not, as commonly argued, all that difficult to get on ballots in most every state. “The process is complex but not hard,” says longtime GOP operative Rick Wilson, who is involved in such efforts. “All the steps are explicable, and the lawyers know how to get it home. Even in ballot access states due in May, there are...

    by Samantha Foster CNN appears to have used a doctored image of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with his young son, in a gushing propaganda "documentary" clearly produced to promote the former VP for the presidency. The Democratic nominee initially shared back in June, a photo of himself and a young Hunter Biden from a Washington Redskins game, to commemorate Father's Day. But when CNN used the photo in their Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat! The "news" network was immediately castigated for such "Soviet-style propaganda." Back...

    “CNN appears to have altered a widely seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins,” reports Fox News. If CNNLOL is willing to go to all the trouble to lie about little things like this to protect Joe Biden and to defeat Trump, imagine the lengths CNNLOL is currently going to to lie and mislead and gaslight over big things. Stuff that matters. Thought of that should put a chill straight up your spine. In June, on Father’s Day, Biden, the Democrat nominee for president, shared a photo of himself and...

    The Washington Post accused President Donald Trump on Tuesday of using violence, or depictions of violence, as “political fuel” for his re-election campaign.” In a news article by Michael Scherer titled “Trump employs images of violence as political fuel for reelection fight,” the Post claims that merely by depicting the violence that has taken place in Democrat-run cities — sometimes with the support of Democrats — Trump is “amplifying domestic conflict.” When shared on Twitter, the article’s headline shortens to “Trump employs violence as political fuel for reelection fight.”

The date on one particular Joe Biden tweet from Oct. 2019, therefore, stands out as beyond suspicious. Just like the Washington Post’s story Biden’s tweet is a response to — about the pandemic and America’s response to a pandemic. But this was MONTHS BEFORE the pandemic in America and even months before the COVID-19 break out in China.

    "Charlottesville is also home to a defining moment for this nation in the last few years. It was there on August of 2017 we saw Klansmen and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and bearing the fangs of racism. Chanting the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ‘30s. And they were met by a courageous group of Americans, and a violent clash ensued and a brave young woman lost her life. And that’s when we heard the words from the president of the United States that stunned...

    Both the Democrats and the Black Lives Matter organization exploit blacks for political purposes while destroying their families and communities in the bargain. They offer dependency and encourage behavior that is both self-destructive and ruinous to the Black community as a whole. After nearly sixty years of devastation in supporting the left, increasingly blacks realize that they’ve been screwed and see the upside of changing allegiance to President Trump. However, you will find George W. Bush had similar “approval” ratings from blacks. Approval ratings do not equate to votes. Contrary to popular belief, the riots are not happening in black...

    PALM BEACH, Florida – The Democratic Party, including the candidates on its presidential ticket this year, are fiercely trying to spark a nationwide race war, says talk-radio giant Rush Limbaugh. "I believe the Democrat Party – Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, whoever – I think they are attempting, and have been for a while, to literally foment a race war. I think that has been the objective," Limbaugh said Monday on his national broadcast. "Trump is not just running for reelection. There's so much more going on here. The story that the president told at the Republican National Convention – and...

    D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser must think she’s clever. Maybe she’s just desperate. After weeks of lawlessness in D.C., she’s “pleading” with Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin to lower the boom on not-so-peaceful protesters. In typical Democrat fashion, the violence and destruction plaguing a city -- in this case, a very special city -- isn’t the mayor’s fault. Voters aren’t buying this pap. By Election Day, they really won’t be buying it. Ask conservatives why mobs are running D.C.’s streets, and the typical answer is that Bowser isn’t doing her job. They’re right about that. Say conservatives, if D.C. can’t handle...
