    (Reuters) - Benny Gantz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's toughest rival in Israel's upcoming parliamentary election, dismissed as "political gossip" on Friday media reports of allegations that his mobile phone had been hacked by Iranian intelligence. The former Israeli armed forces chief was speaking near the border with Gaza following a day which saw the most serious escalation in months between Israel's military and Palestinians in the coastal enclave. "We're in the middle of an ongoing security event...and someone's putting out a political gossip story," Gantz said. "I do not think Benny Gantz is the story here. There's no security issue...

  • Lynch Testimony Reveals Bias and Intent For Failing To Give Trump Defensive Briefing

    President Donald Trumps campaign was never given a defensive briefing by the FBI, despite mounting concerns that Russians were allegedly trying to penetrate the campaign during the 2016 presidential election. In testimony provided by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, along with others, it is the key finding that wont bode well for the FBI and DOJ. It also raises significant questions regarding the treatment of Hillary Clintons campaign and whether she ever received defensive briefings in detail from the bureau. Lynchs testimony is still not public but has been reviewed by I WAS CERTAINLY AWARE THAT IT WAS AN...

    This seems not just correct but obviously correct. If the public is given an up or down vote on a guy who can’t seem to top 44.4 percent in average job approval, odds are good that a majority will give thumbs down. And the White House agrees! It’s not a coincidence that Trump is already testing some bareknuckle attacks for next fall, like claiming that Democrats hate Jews. He won’t phrase it this way but his 2020 message will be “Whatever you may think of me, these liberals have become g-ddamned lunatics.” He won a lesser-of-two-evils election before, he...

    House Democrats passed a sweeping electoral reform bill in a 234-193 party-line vote on Friday. The For The People Act, better known as H.R. 1 spearheaded by John Sarbanes (D-Md.) aims to expand voting rights, implement new ethics rules and increase transparency in elections, according to its proponents. The bill includes provisions enable automatic automatic voter registration, strengthen resources to stave off foreign threats on elections and would make Election Day a national holiday for federal workers. Democrats unveiled the legislation shortly after the start of the 116th Congress, underscoring its importance in their agenda. Supporters of the...

    This is a pretty significant pickup for the GOP in Kentucky tonight. #SD31 Democrats are doing pretty poorly overall in 2019 special elections thus far. They are at risk of giving back quite a bit of ground to the GOP if they can't right this ship.

    Social media has been full of the Democrats talking about the Stormy Daniels affair with the joy and sniggers of three-year-olds who just discovered theres a word for what you do on the potty. This is predictable and not at all upsetting, because if these people had any political sophistication and understanding of history, they wouldnt support a party that is more fully behind the full-on communism that has killed a hundred million human beings in the 20th century and bids fair to at least an attempt to continue its work in the twenty-first. Also, most of them have the...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) may be in hot water with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) after she paid herself $17,500 in campaign funds following the 2018 midterm elections, according to a report. Recent FEC filings show that the freshman Democrat lawmaker may have run afoul of campaign finance rules by making payments to herself after she ended her candidacy on Election Day. According to FEC rules, a general election candidate can take a salary from his or campaign funds until the date of the election. If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be...

    ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose AK Party is facing major defeats this month in local elections, is being accused of behaving like a "dictator" after his threat to remove victorious pro-Kurdish mayoral candidates.Erdogan, addressing supporters this week, issued a stark threat to voters in Turkey's predominantly Kurdish southeast: Candidates deemed sympathetic to the PKK Kurdish separatist group who are elected will be removed."If you happen to send the opportunities provided by the state to Qandil [where PKK leaders are based in neighboring northern Iraq], we will once again, immediately and without waiting any further, appoint our trustees," Erdogan...

    How long is Sen. Elizabeth Warren going to continue her delusional quest for the presidency? In recent days her policy proposals and fundraising pitches have become increasingly desperate as she vies for attention from the voters in a crowded, progressive field. As the Heralds Hillary Chabot reported last week, Warren has declined to share her announcement day fundraising totals, even as her Democratic opponents have made headlines for their impressive hauls. Sen. Bernie Sanders shattered expectations when his campaign raked in a record-setting $5.9 million dollars from 299,000 small donors immediately following his announcement. The Vermont socialist, far from fading...

    Nigeria: Death toll of Fulani jihad massacre doubles to over 130 The death toll from an attack last week by gunmen in northwestern Nigeria has doubled to more than 130. The Fulani ethnic group appeared to have been a deliberate plan to wipe out certain communities. Those certain communities are the Christian victims of the so-called Fulani ethnic group, often referred to as Fulani herdsmen. Governor Nasir El-Rufai told reporters that police were still investigating the gunmens motive for the attack, as he tries to minimize the reality of the jihad. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been more upfront about...

    RALEIGH, N.C. A key witness testified Monday that she engaged in fraudulent and illegal activity involving absentee ballots in a congressional race in North Carolina as part of a get-out-the vote operation to benefit the Republican congressional candidate in a race that is still unresolved. In frank testimony before the North Carolina State Board of Elections, Lisa Britt said that she was paid to collect absentee ballots in the 2018 election by McCrae Dowless, a political operative hired by consultants for Republican congressional candidate Mark Harris. Britt said some of the ballots she collected were unsealed and uncompleted and...

    Electoral College advocates see a window of opportunity to eliminate Americas unique presidential election system. They are seizing the moment, working to implement change before anyone realizes what happened. They even think they can do it without a constitutional amendment. National Popular Vote (NPV) is a California-based effort that has been running under the radar. Its proponents ask state legislatures to agree to an interstate compact. By the terms of that simple contract, each participating state would agree to allocate its entire slate of electors to the winner of the national popular vote. This is a change from the current...

    Broward County, FL election head Brenda Snipes is back in the news, as a former candidate who ran against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the 2016 Democratic primary wondered aloud in a tweet why the Department of Justice never prosecuted her for illegally destroying paper ballots from the race. Tim Canova got only 43% of the vote in that primary, but he challenged the results in court. While the case was being decided, Canova requested that Broward County hand over the thousands of paper ballots that had been cast. When Brenda Snipes' office refused, he sued - only to find out...

    SANDUSKY, Ohio - The city of Sandusky will no longer recognize Columbus Day as an official holiday. Instead of having the day as a paid holiday, city workers will have off on Election Day. City officials said they decided to make the switch for two reasons. It prioritizes voting. The move also recognizes Columbus Days controversial origins. What better way to celebrate the value of our employees and citizens than by removing barriers for them to participate in the greatest of American innovations, our democracy, the city said on Facebook.
