    Consider this the pounciest of the media’s constant “conservatives/Republicans pounce!” spin on bad news for their opponents. After having been reviled by Democrats and the media as a traitor for the past two years, Politico apparently expected Donald Trump and his allies to react to his exoneration by, um, pretending it never happened. The big takeaway from the outlet’s perspective is that Trump & Co. should have showed more “interest in healing or national unity” rather than point out that their opponents had engaged in paranoid conspiracy theories: But after the nearly two-year investigation found no collusion or clear...
  • Politico: 'Republicans Gleefully Pounced on the Special Counsels Statement'

    Perhaps the revelation of the long-awaited Robert Mueller report is a good time for the mainstream media in general, and Politico in particular, to finally retirethat hackneyed meme, "Republicans pounced." For at least a year that worn out term has been used whenever Republicans have responded to erroneous Democrat or liberal positions. It didn't matter how much in the wrong the Democrats were, if Republicans offered any kind of reply or correction, it was often translated by the MSM as "Republicans pounced." The latest (and can we hope, last) instance has come with the release of the Mueller report in...

    President Donald Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations. But if the election were held today, hed likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses. Credit a strong U.S. economy featuring low unemployment, rising wages and low gas prices along with the historic advantage held by incumbent presidents. While Trump appears to be in a much stronger position than his approval rating and conventional Beltway wisdom might suggest, he also could wind...
  • Bernie Sanders Campaign Spox Asks if American Jews Hold Dual Allegiance to Israel

    Beln Sisa, the Latino press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) 2020 presidential campaign, has apologized for questioning whether American Jews hold dual allegiance to Israel, Politico reported Tuesday evening. Sisa reportedly asked the question on Facebook Sunday as part of a larger discussion about her support for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who came under fire this month for suggesting pro-Israel groups pressure members of Congress to pledge allegiance to a foreign country. In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive. Issues of allegiance and loyalty to ones country come with painful history,...
  • Politico: Beto O'Rourke 'Is Now Manufacturing Suspense'

    Could Politico have already reached peak Beto and is now on the downward slope from the zenith? Despite their own senior media Jack Shafer back in October begging "Stop the Press Before It Profiles Beto ORourke Again," the paeans to failed senate candidate Beto O'Rourke have continued unabated at Politico. However, that might have changed on Saturday when Politico writer David Siders expressed how irked he was with their beloved Beto appearing to be playing games as to whether he would announce his candidacy for president that he wrote that he"is now manufacturing suspense."

    Perhaps Politico might want to reconsider publishing polls conducted by pollsters with a background ofextreme Trump Derangement Syndrome. Such polls do tend to be chock full of errors as was the case in the poll Politico published on Wednesday which was conducted by Democratic pollsterFernand Amandi who has a well earned TDS reputation leading to the suspicion that his polls reflect an obvious agenda. In the case of the Amandi poll that Politico featured it shows Trump losing Florida despite polling irregularities and contradictory stats that are fairly easy to find. Before we get to the Politico story blaring that...

    In a meeting with Democratic colleagues, Pelosi was reportedly confronted by a number of members of Congress for not reaching out to the party in regards to Omars comments on Israel. In the meeting, Pelosi was challenged for getting her talking points from MSNBC by freshman Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jahana Hayes, according to Politico. Well if youre not going to listen to me, Im done talking, Pelosi reportedly said, before putting down her microphone and walking out of the room. After the meeting Pelosi reportedly told a Politico reporter that she did not believe Omars comments were intentionally anti Semitic...

    VIDEO The DUmmies are celebrating a poll with dubious veracity due to it being conducted by a pollster with a history of extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome. The one who conducted this fake poll is one Fernand Amandi who is a well-known TDS sufferer in South Florida. In 2016, leading up to the election, Amandi as a daily WIOD radio host kept harping constantly at how it was IMPOSSIBLE for Trump to win either Florida of the general election. He delivered his prognostications on this topic with an air of an incredibly smug chip-on-the-shoulder attitude in which he directed mocking condescension...
  • Our Healthcare Bill Will Outlaw Private Coverage, Eliminate Up to Two Million Jobs, Cover Abortion

    More than 100 House Democrats -- nearly half of the new majority -- have signed on to a new single-payer healthcare bill that supporters describe as "battle ready." If by "battle ready," they mean, "extremely controversial, deeply politically risky, and totally bereft of any acknowledgement of the proposal's eye-poppingly exorbitant costs," they're undoubtedly correct. Politico's story on the legislation is full of extraordinary tidbits and quotes. Here are some of the most important facts we've learned: (1) The bill "doesnt include a price tag or specific proposals for financing the new system, which analysts estimate would cost tens of trillions...

    Its well known that tackling climate change is one of Bernie Sanders signature policy planks as he again battles to become president of the United States. That fact was underlined by his campaign-launch video last week, which warned the Vermont senator would be taking on the fossil-fuel industry. Whats less well-known is that Sanders insisted on using a private jet as he toured the U.S. in 2016 as a surrogate campaigner for Hillary Clinton, who had topped him for the Democratic nomination. A new report by Politico quotes six former Clinton staffers and one other source as saying Sanders preference...

    The Associated Press was "highly irresponsible" in publishing a story detailing American Robert Levinson's ties to the CIA, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday. The AP's story, held for years at the request of government officials, traces Levinson's work with the CIA before he went missing in Iran more than six years ago and "very likely puts that person in greater danger," Carney said,

    SADDLE BROOK, N.J. New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and other members of the states congressional delegation announced legislation Monday that would repeal the cap on state and local income tax deductions enacted as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1 (115). Menendez (D-N.J.) and Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), the primary sponsors, say their bill would pay for the cost of removing the $10,000 cap by restoring the top income tax bracket to 39.6 percent. While thats likely a nonstarter with many in the GOP, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) New Jerseys only Republican congressman is...

    Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) said on Monday that he will oppose President Trump's attorney general nominee, becoming the first Republican to come out as a "no" vote on William Barr. Paul told Politico that he had concerns about Barr's record on privacy, calling him a "chief advocate for warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens." A spokesman for Paul didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The libertarian-leaning GOP senator had previously raised concerns about Barr, who also served as attorney general to President George H.W. Bush.
