    Rosie O’Donnell, a notorious critic of President Trump, said Thursday she wants the U.S. armed forces to remove him from the White House. “I want to send the military to the White House to get him,” O’Donnell said on MSNBC, as host Nicolle Wallace discussed Trump’s threats to have the military “close” the U.S.-Mexico border amid reports a massive migrant caravan is en route to the area. The former talk show host also reflected on a previous suggestion to impose martial law to delay President Trump’s inauguration. “When he was elected what I wrote on Twitter was we should impose...
  • 'Aggressors Will Be Annihilated, We Will Go to Heaven as Martyrs,' Putin Says

    10/19/2018 12:10:59 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 12 replies
    Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Russia was ready to "annihilate" any attacker who would use nuclear weapons against it, but would never strike first. "An aggressor should know that vengeance is inevitable, that he will be annihilated, and we would be the victims of the aggression. We will go to heaven as martyrs, and they will just drop dead. They will not even have time to repent for this," he said. In March this year Putin unveiled an array of new nuclear weapons in one of his most bellicose speeches in years, saying they could hit almost...

    HANNITY: We are in the studios of Rush Limbaugh. First, I want to congratulate you: 30 years talk radio, the king of talk radio and going stronger than ever. RUSH: It’s amazing. It really is. You know, I’m enjoying it as much as I ever have, if not more so. I get more thrills from it, I get more satisfaction from it than I’ve ever had. If you would have told me 30 years ago or even 40 when I was dreaming about this, that by the time I reached 65 that it would be more competitive than ever, that...
  • Left Uses Khashoggi as Latest Vehicle to Tarnish Trump

    RUSH: Okay. Let me zero in on the situation involving the death of the so-called Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who’s now being referred to as a lovable, little teddy bear-type guy in the New York Times. There is… and I know I went through this the other day. But I am continuing to see it, and this is what makes me suspicious of this story, folks. You know, I read my tech blogs. I read everything. There are still people attempting via their reporting to suggest that there is a recording of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi from his...
  • Ritual to Hex Kavanaugh Is So Popular That Witches Organized Another One

    The first ritual to hex Kavanaugh, as well as “all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them” will take place this Saturday, October 20, and sold out less than a week before any major publicity, Dakota Bracciale, Catland co-owner and creator of the hex on Kavanaugh, told Broadly. More than 10,000 people have marked themselves as “going” or “interested” on Facebook since the event was published. Because Catland has a maximum event occupancy of 60, organizers are expanding the hex into multiple rituals and events. (Catland’s June ritual to hex Trump and his constituency was...
  • ‘Windswept House’ and that Vatican document

    American Conservative ^ | October 24, 2011, 8:27 PM | ROD DREHER
    I just remembered why that Vatican document calling for global government for the greater good of all hit such a nerve: it reminded me of “Windswept House,” the Malachi Martin novel from the mid-1990s. Any of my readers ever read that book? It was very popular with conservative Catholics when it came out. I started it, but didn’t get very far. I do recall that it was widely discussed at the time in conservative and traditionalist Catholic circles. The late Malachi Martin (d. 1999) was a fascinating figure. He was a former Jesuit priest, Vatican insider, and, by the end...
  • Knox County sees another 'banner day' for early voting. (GOP stronghold in Tennessee)

    Knox News ^ | 10/18/2018 | Knox News
    Nearly 10,000 people showed up to the polls each day on the first and second days of early voting. The first day alone was one of the best in at least 10 years according to the election commission. Even though it's not a presidential election year, Knox County voters are swarming to the polls early -- possibly breaking a county record in the process. Generally, midterm elections see a lower-than-average voter turnout compared to presidential election years -- but this does not appear to be the case for the 2018 midterms.

  • MSNBC Analyst Defends Warren, Suggests Cherokee Nation is Racist

    Desperate to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous political stunt of taking a DNA test to try to prove Native American heritage, late Thursday morning, MSNBC Political Analyst and SiriusXM Director of Progressive Programming Zerlina Maxwell actually insinuated that the Cherokee Nation was racist, following their statement condemning Warren. Noting that Warren “long claimed that she’s part Cherokee,” anchor Craig Melvin cited: “Cherokee Nation, Secretary of State Cherokee Nation, said in a statement, ‘DNA testing cannot prove that Warren is Cherokee or any other tribe.’” The host asked: “Do we think that the decision itself was a mistake? Do we...

    Vermont State Police are investigating a threatening letter to a Republican candidate for the Vermont House of Representatives. Colchester House candidate Deserae Morin, who is running for office for the first time, received an anonymous letter in the mail to her home address on Friday. A photo of the letter sent out with the statement shows a message constructed out of cut-out letters fixed to a piece of paper. “We are hunting you. My comrades will kill you and the Constitution,” it states. The letter threatens her with sexual violence. “You will scream and know that agonizing horror,” it reads....

    HOUSTON – David Price picked the perfect time to book his first career playoff win as a starting pitcher. It sent the Boston Red Sox to the World Series. Arguably the worst postseason starter in baseball history, Price shut out a flat Houston Astros team for six innings Thursday night en route to a 4-1 victory in a pennant-clinching Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. The Red Sox, who won a franchise-record 108 games during the regular season, will host the winner of the Los Angeles Dodgers-Milwaukee Brewers National League Championship Series in Game 1 of the World...

    Would someone please explain this to me? Is this photoshopped? I don’t get it. The fellow who sent it to me, who is from Latin America, wrote: “They’re saying the colors represent regions of Latin America, but being from there, I don’t know how that’s actually the case.” So… what is that? It looks like a cross in rainbow colors, but in an abstract pattern so that it avoids a rainbow look (which must be purposeful). What is that?
  • The Embarrassing Spectacle of Betomania

    Attention, journalists of America: Time is running out! You have under three weeks left to publish your last batch of over-the-top pre-election puff pieces on Texas Democrat/cross-country liberal sensation/wing-and-a-prayer Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke! It is here that we must face the difficult truth: Barring a GOP-related disaster of some sort, O’Rourke — he of that ineffable “cool factor” and “special sauce,” at least according to easily impressed columnists at the Washington Post — is likely to lose big. According to the latest polls, Senator Ted Cruz leads him by anywhere between seven and nine points. Tuesday’s debate between the two,...
  • The 2018 Election-Night Scorecard

    Election Day is just under three weeks away, and the contours of the political landscape are growing clearer. Democrats are poised to make major gains in the suburbs, putting them in commanding position to retake the House majority. The biggest unknown is whether Democrats will ride a huge anti-Trump tidal wave, or whether late Republican engagement can limit their losses. In the Senate, the fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation nationalized the election in the red-state battlegrounds, significantly boosting the fortunes of several GOP challengers. Last month, Democrats looked like they could cut into the GOP’s razor-thin 51-49 majority...

    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...

    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...

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The three top officials in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province were killed when their own guards opened fire on them at a security conference Thursday, the deputy provincial governor said, and a Taliban spokesman said the target was Washington’s top general in Afghanistan, Gen. Scott Miller, who escaped without injury, according to NATO. Agha Lala Dastageri, Kandahar’s deputy provincial governor, said powerful provincial police chief Abdul Raziq was among the dead, along with Kandahar Gov. Zalmay Wesa, who died of his wounds at a nearby hospital. Dastageri said provincial intelligence chief Abdul Mohmin also died inside the governor’s...
