    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi guaranteed that Democrats will retake majority in the House in the midterm elections this coming Tuesday. During an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Pelosi became very bullish about Democrats' ability to take back a majority they have not seen since losing their grip on the House in 2010, just two years into the Barack Obama administration. "Let me say this. Up until today, I would've said, 'If the election were held today, we would win,' she said. "What now I'm saying is, 'We will win.'"

    US President Donald Trump has offered condolences at the Pennsylvania synagogue where 11 Jewish worshippers were shot dead at the weekend. He was joined by First Lady Melania Trump, his daughter and son-in-law at the Tree of Life temple in Pittsburgh. Hundreds of protesters gathered on the street chanting slogans against the president. The visit came as mourners attended the first funerals for victims of the massacre. The Trumps were greeted on Tuesday by Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, who led them inside the temple, where the worst anti-Semitic attack in US history unfolded on Saturday. At a memorial outside, Mrs Trump...

    Users worldwide reported that YouTube was down for many people for at least an hour on Tuesday night, October 16. The reason is not yet known, but reports came in fast worldwide. This is unusual for one of the most popular websites in the world. So far, YouTube hasn’t issued an official statement about what happened except to note that they are working on the problem and to later note that it was fixed. Although the site may have occasionally had brief issues in the past, being down this long is very rare. Some regions are reporting that the site...

    FBI agents this week raided the municipal offices in San Juan, Puerto Rico – rooting through documents and seizing digital records as part of a widespread investigation into fraud and obstruction of justice charges tied to the city government. San Juan’s purchasing division was the target of the raid. And while FBI special agent Douglas Leff did not implicate Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz in the raid, he did tell local media that “we are going to follow the investigation where it leads us.”Cruz tweeted Tuesday that she has instructed city officials to cooperate with federal authorities and said, “If someone...

    President Trump on Thursday warned that he may take military action to stop immigrants from crossing the southern border into the U.S. if Mexico does not take action to stop the "onslaught." "I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.....," he said in an initial tweet. “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control...

    A woman is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her by locking her in a room and forcing himself on her at a party while they were both in high school. Kavanaugh, in a statement to The New Yorker, which broke the details of the encounter, denied the claim. “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” he said. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.” The woman, whose identity is still not public, sent Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) a letter in the summer, after...

    A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.

    I don’t know why a Michael Avenatti as ‘President’ would shock me – frankly, this Country would just be finished off. It is almost gone now, but that obnoxious man would take any hope left and literally TRASH it. Michael Avenatti made his first big speech as a prospective candidate calling on the Democratic Party to forget Michelle Obama’s advice, “When they go low, we go high.” Avenatti was a keynote speaker at the Democratic Party Fundraiser in Iowa. The Democrats are so twisted, they chose this man as a keynote speaker. “We must be a party that fights fire...

    Two sisters famous for praising President Trump say Facebook has deemed their videos dangerous. Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson are better known as “Diamond and Silk” to their hundreds of thousands of fans — one of whom is Trump. The sisters, who are black, campaigned for him in an election in which blacks overwhelmingly voted against the Republican. And the sisters continue to defend him against accusations of racism. (“Build that wall, build it tall, protect us all before this country falls,” they once rapped) Thank you Diamond and Silk! https://t.co/qdsLUy2hqD — Donald J.

    If she knew it was going to land her back in prison, Crystal Mason said she would have never cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election. The 43-year-old former tax preparer hadn't even planned on voting until her mother encouraged her to do it. She had only recently been released from federal prison for a 2012 tax fraud conviction, in which she pleaded guilty to inflating returns for her clients, her attorney, J. Warren St. John, told The Washington Post. She was still on community supervision at the time of the election - but no one, including her probation...

    Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel says he has no regrets about ripping President Donald Trump on a near-nightly basis even if it turns off countless conservative viewers. “A lot of people are going with this line of reasoning where they say, people in show business shouldn’t speak out about politics,” Jimmy Kimmel told in an interview with ABC News’ Paula Faris on Tuesday. “And yet … they elected Donald Trump the president of the United States. So I think that argument has pretty well jumped out the window.” Most recently, the Live host has pushed political views like amnesty for illegal...

It looks as if the Philadelphia Eagles playbook has been expanded to include more than screen passes and flea flickers.Step 1: Win Super Bowl for first time in franchise history. Step 2: Watch as fans set fire to city, loot department stores and tear down street lights. Step 3: Turn victory into political statement so some players can be part of the #RESIST movement.Time Magazine reports that a number of players didn’t waste any time on celebrating or planning for the next season before they...

    The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses. The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said. President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

    Chelsea Manning was turned back at the Canadian-U.S. border because she was convicted of espionage for passing information to Wikileaks, the former U.S. intelligence analyst said on Monday. Manning told Reuters via direct message on Twitter that she drove up to the Canadian border in Lacolle, Quebec, on Thursday evening, planning to vacation in Montreal and Vancouver. She said she was stopped at the border and detained overnight before being handed a report stating she was inadmissible “on grounds of serious criminality,” according to a picture of the report she posted online. The offenses Manning was convicted of under the...
