    As we previously reported, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell was dining at Havana Rumba with his wife, Elaine Chao, in Louisville, Kentucky, last week when a group of angry liberals began to verbally harass him. One man began to pound on McConnell's table, then proceeded to throw his bag of leftovers out the front door of the building. The video below actually shows the attack on McConnell and his wife, but if you watch until the end, you can see a man wearing a camouflage hat defending the Republican Senator against his attacker. "Oh yeah, why don't you get out of...

    A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone. Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao -- to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell. “Oh yeh, why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave our entire country,” the...

    CNN political reporter Daniella Diaz sent a tweet on Monday pointing out that President Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell locked hands while walking up stairs at the White House following their Rose Garden press conference. Diaz seemed to be mocking the Republican duo – but while followers quickly pointed out that the Kentucky senator is a polio survivor, the tweet remains on her feed nearly 24 hours later. “That hand-lock between Trump and McConnell, though,” Diaz wrote with video of the incident.

    President Donald Trump gave unusually strong praise for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his role in Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court at a rally in Richmond, Kentucky, Saturday evening. "There's nobody tougher, there's nobody smarter," Trump said of McConnell to a cheering crowd of some 6,000 supporters in the senator's home state. "He stared down the angry left-wing mob." McConnell briefly took the stage and praised Trump for his judicial nominations, asking him to keep it up. Trump said that Democrats "demonized" Kavanaugh before knowing anything about him. "What happened to him was so unfair, I've...

    Even with the midterm elections looming, Republican leaders in Congress made clear this week they're paying close attention to a looming battle over President Donald Trump's promised border wall. On Monday, House Speaker Paul Ryan predicted a "big fight" over border security on the horizon, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that the GOP is "committed" to working to secure the funding the President wants for his signature campaign pledge.

    President Donald Trump led a rousing cheer for Kentucky's senior senator, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as he celebrated his administration's first two years in office during a political rally in Richmond, Kentucky. McConnell returned the compliment, asking the president to continue nominating judges for the federal bench so the GOP-led Senate can keep confirming them. Trump brought the state's other U.S. senator, Rand Paul to the stage, who pointed out how supportive the president has been of one of his health care proposals. The rally at Eastern Kentucky University gives Trump a forum to promote the campaigns of GOP candidates...

    Another rally tonight by our tireless president. How does he do it. You may need to search for this event, as many of the cable news shoes are not going to carry it. I welcome anyone to post good links to this rally before or during. Polls and information posted on this forum by LS and Kevin Collins along with some insightful articles by Ed Morrissey and others indicate that we are winning in places no one thought possible. At the present time it looks likely that we will retain the majority in the House and pick up 4 to...

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and his "political operation" was behind the leaking of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford "from the very beginning." @@ SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARKANSAS): Hugh, I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning. We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford’s roommate, and she was one of the so-called beach friends who encouraged Ms. Ford to go to Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Well, it just turns...

    The hardest working man in Washington, DC, (maybe the planet) is again showing the GOP how it gets done. No other president in my lifetime has shown this much stamina, energy and positive attitude. I truly believe that he is winning over the media and the independents, and maybe a few democrats, little by little. In time, his approvals will be over 60%. Just three more weeks, My Friends, after this weekend. For many states, early voting start on Monday October 15!!!

    Declaration could put Iowa Republican at odds with Mitch McConnell Revealing a potentially contentious Republican chasm, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley told Fox News on Tuesday night that if he still leads the committee in 2020 and a Supreme Court seat becomes vacant, the panel would not consider a nominee. That could put the Iowa Republican at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell signaled last week that he could reverse himself and consider what would be a third high court nominee for President Donald Trump should a vacancy arise in 2020. The Kentucky Republican famously blocked President...
  • Senate defeats measure to overturn Trump expansion of non-ObamaCare plans

    The Senate on Wednesday defeated a Democratic measure to overrule President Trump’s expansion of non-ObamaCare insurance plans as Democrats seek to highlight health care ahead of the midterm elections. The Democratic measure would have overruled Trump’s expansion of short-term health insurance plans, which do not have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or cover a range of health services like mental health or prescription drugs. It was defeated on an extremely narrow, mostly party line 50-50 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voting with Democrats in favor of overturning the short-term plans. Republicans argue the short-term plans simply provide a...

    Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) wife, Kelley Paul, penned a CNN OpEd on Saturday detailing the intimidation tactics and threats their family has received from the Left. Her OpEd was an open letter to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who had previously encouraged liberal supporters to threaten and intimidate politicians on the Right. Senator Booker, Rand has worked with you to co-sponsor criminal justice reform bills. He respects you, and so do I. I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials' personal addresses (our address was leaked from...

    Two events from the last two days stand out. The first came Monday night with President Trump’s forceful yet compassionate speech at the swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The president opened with an extraordinary apology on behalf of the country to Kav­anaugh and his family “for the terrible pain and suffering” they endured during the historically brutal confirmation process. He said the unfounded allegations violated fairness and “the presumption of innocence.” Trump also tenderly addressed Kavanaugh’s young daughters, telling them “your father is a great man, a man of decency, character, kindness and courage.” The event...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a new interview that he may be willing to consider a Supreme Court nominee during the final year of President Trump's first term. “We’ll see if there is a vacancy in 2020,” McConnell said after Brett Kavanaugh was officially confirmed as the newest Supreme Court justice, according to The Associated Press.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is signaling that he is ready and prepared to move another Supreme Court nominee from President Trump through Senate confirmation – including during the the 2020 presidential election season, if another seat were to become available then. “We’ll see if there is a vacancy in 2020,” McConnell said in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." McConnell famously blocked a Senate vote on former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nomination Merrick Garland two years ago, on the grounds that it was a presidential election year. When asked Sunday whether moving a Trump nominee in...

    President Trump said Monday that he expects a lot of Democratic voters to support Republican candidates in the upcoming midterms because of how the party's lawmakers handled sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we’ll end up being Venezuela. This country would end up being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting voting Republican on Nov. 6," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a law enforcement event in Florida. The president seized on the specter raised by...

    A Kentucky man went viral this week after going online to lament the fact that his name is similar to that of Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee who was confirmed after a weeks-long controversy involving multiple allegations of sexual assault. Kentucky's Brett Kavanagh, who spells his name without a "u," told local outlet Louisville Courier Journal that it became increasingly "crazy" having the same name as a man who was at the center of a dramatic nationwide controversy. Kavanagh went viral with a tweet saying "This is a terrible time to be named Brett Kavanagh," which has been "liked"...
