    Monica Lewinsky says she would again apologize to former first lady Hillary Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, over the 1998 sex scandal that embroiled the White House and led to former President Bill Clinton's impeachment. Lewinsky, who has become an activist for women's rights and part of the #MeToo movement, wrote in a personal essay that 20 years later, amid the public reckoning over sexual harassment and gender-based power dynamics facing the United States, that she has chosen to again discuss her relationship with Bill Clinton while he was married. "My first public words after the scandal ... were...

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) is mounting a run for the White House, according to a Politico report, making him one of the first Democrats to challenge President Trump in 2020. An aide to Swalwell declined to confirm the Politico report, but noted that the three-term congressman has raised the prospect of a presidential bid in interviews and television appearances for months.

    Despite forecasts of a Democratic House takeover, liberals grappling with 'PTSD' are braced for another surprise election disaster. On the eve of the midterms, President Donald Trump’s approval is falling, young voters are energized, and Republicans look poised to lose their House majority. It’s enough to make Democrats nervous, miserable wrecks.

    On the eve of the midterms, President Donald Trump’s approval is falling, young voters are energized, and Republicans look poised to lose their House majority. It’s enough to make Democrats nervous, miserable wrecks. Haunted by memories of 2016, liberals around the country are riven with anxiety in the campaign’s homestretch. They’re suspicious of favorable polls and making election night contingency plans in case their worst fears come true. Some report literal nightmares about a Democratic wipeout. “We're kind of just in the bed-wetting phase now," said Democratic pollster John Anzalone, a Hillary Clinton campaign alumnus who spent election night 2016...
  • DID OBAMA TIP OFF IRAN TO ISRAELI PLAN TO TAKE OUT WORLD'S PREMIER TERRORIST?

    A Kuwaiti paper reveals another monstrous Obama betrayal. We thought the Obama administration could stoop no lower when it was revealed that the administration transferred $1.7 billion in untraceable cash to the Islamic Republic as ransom for the release of four Americans hostages they were holding. We were wrong. In its twilight weeks, the administration gave its consent to allow the Iranians to receive 116 metric tons of natural uranium from Russia as compensation for its export of tons of reactor coolant. According to experts familiar with the transaction, the uranium could be enriched to weapons-grade sufficient for the production...
  • Democrat Harry Reid: Migrants – Not Americans – Are the ‘Lifeblood’ of America

    Migrants are the “lifeblood” of America, not Americans and their children, says former top Democrat Sen. Harry Reid. “Immigrants are the lifeblood of our nation,” Reid said, ignoring the 4 million Americans who turn 18 this year in a homeland with 260 million Americans, 34 million legal immigrants and at least 11 million illegal migrants. Migrants, he said, “are our power and our strength.” Reid made the claim as he tried to slam President Donald Trump’s call on Oct. for a reform of the birthright citizenship rules. Reid led the Senate Democrats until 2016. His elevation of migrants above Americans...

    Harry Reid on Wednesday said Donald Trump is "profoundly wrong" after the president quoted his 1993 position on revoking birthright citizenship in perhaps his harshest criticism of the president since leaving office... "... I(Harry) made a mistake" by proposing a bill to remove birthright citizenship from immigrants who entered the country illegally. In a speech on the Senate floor 25 years ago, Reid said "no sane country" would offer a "reward for being an illegal immigrant." Referring to that speech, Trump said Reid was correct "before he and the Democrats went insane and started with the Open Borders (which brings...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed President Donald Trump — just kidding, that’s not true, to the best of anyone’s knowledge. But that’s what you might have come away believing if you were drawn into the analysis piece Politico published on Wednesday. Former federal prosecutor Nelson W. Cunningham‘s analysis would eventually be featured at the very top of the influential Drudge Report Wednesday morning. Needless to say, this resulted in some pretty swift responses from legal observers. Cunningham rightly noted that there have been some odd things going on lately, focusing on an anonymous grand jury witness and the break-neck...

    GQ columnist Julia Ioffe is apologizing after claiming that President Trump "has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did" during a segment on CNN’s “The Lead.” The commentary comes two days after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead, which prompted Ioffe to blame the president in a controversial tweet. "And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible," Ioffe wrote shortly after the shooting on Saturday. "Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there [in Israel], where you don’t live was worth it." On Monday,...

    One of the big liberal memes in this election season is about the many women who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 but have now seen the error their ways and have decided to go Blue this year. And since there are supposed to be so many women in that category, they should be easy to find, right? Well, Politico writer Michael Kruse attempted to hunt them down but came up woefully short. Kruse described his political safari to the wilds of North Carolina to find such a woman in his October 25 Politico Magazine article, "They’re Angry, Disgusted and Out...

    President Donald Trump's critics have spent the past 17 months anticipating what some expect will be among the most thrilling events of their lives: special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on Russian 2016 election interference. They may be in for a disappointment. That’s the word POLITICO got from defense lawyers working on the Russia probe and more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience spanning Watergate to the 2016 election case. The public, they say, shouldn’t expect a comprehensive and presidency-wrecking account of Kremlin meddling and alleged obstruction of justice by Trump — not to mention an explanation of...

    Could Republicans do the unthinkable on November 6th and keep a majority in the House? Politico’s Rachel Bade calls it “unlikely,” but not impossible. Bade hears from Republicans and “even a few Democrats” that the political winds have shifted enough this month that it might result in a slight GOP majority once all the votes have been counted. ....Just about every poll predicts it won’t happen: Suburban voters are too fed up with Donald Trump, and Democrats too awash in cash, for Nancy Pelosi’s party not to seize the House on Nov. 6. And yet House Republicans — and privately,...

    Newsbusters ^ | October 10, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    It is no surprise that unhinged liberals who have formed screaming mobs targeting Trump administration officials or tackling Republican senators peacefully mowing their own lawns would also give the "finger" directed at the same people or President Donald Trump himself. However what is unusual is that a supposely professional reporter for Politico would be equally as unhinged and full of TDS hatred as to not only glorify such activity but to even angrily justify it.  Such a reporter would be Ben Schreckinger who invokes the "finger" over and over so many times that a reader could be excused for misreading...
  • Politico: ‘After Failing to Stop Kavanaugh, Dems Wonder If It’s Time to Be More Ruthless’

    Hot on the heels of attacking Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a serial gang-rapist who should not be allowed around children, Democrats are wondering if it’s “time to be more ruthless,” Politico reports. John F. Harris writes in Politico that many “top Democratic operatives” have “the fear that their party loses big power struggles because Republicans are simply tougher, meaner, more cynical and more ruthless than they are.” "A belief in one’s own virtue feels good. Losing a battle that could shape the American political landscape for decades feels bad. The tension between the two left some Democrats grappling anew this...

    Brett Kavanaugh and I differ on most fundamental questions of constitutional law. Nevertheless, as a former dean of the institution where he received his law degree, I have withheld comment on the merits of his appointment. I am proud of the rich diversity of views that Yale Law School has produced. Over the past decade, Kavanaugh has been a casual acquaintance. He seemed a gentle, quiet, reserved man, always solicitous of the dignity of his position as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. It was therefore with something approaching unbelief that...

    Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) on Monday apologized for writing a review of a Broadway musical in 1991 that detailed the actresses’ “phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.” Politico on Monday resurfaced the review O’Rourke wrote when he was 19 years old for the Columbia Daily Spectator, the university’s student newspaper. The review from the Oct. 10, 1991 edition of the paper was written under the byline Robert O’Rourke and offers a sharp critique of the musical “The Will Rogers Follies.” O’Rourke criticized the “perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”...

    FENTON, Mo. — As GOP Rep. Ann Wagner prepared to introduce candidates in a Republican Senate debate here Friday, she took a pointed jab at one contender who didn’t make it — front-runner Josh Hawley. “I try not to tell candidates how to run their races. I don’t know where some of the other candidates are,” she told POLITICO before taking the stage in a high school auditorium, referring specifically to Hawley. “Perhaps they have conflicts. But you gotta show up to win. And I’m going to tell that to the crowd tonight.” Moments later, Wagner followed through, declaring to...

    This is a tale of two Politicos... In the October 1 USA edition of Politico, the new NAFTA agreement was viewed through the lens of President Donald Trump's supposed braggadocio starting with the very title, "Trump hails 'historic' trade deal with Canada, Mexico" while being rather light on the details, making it seem that it was mainly Trump's opinion that the trade deal was  "historic." In contrast the Politico Pro Canada edition of the same day went much heavier into the details which revealed just how successful Trump was in getting a better deal for the United States.

    With Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford hours away from testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, a bombshell dropped Wednesday afternoon. The committee released the transcript of a call between GOP staffers and the Supreme Court nominee that included two new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The dam, it appeared, had broken. But the claims quickly drew skepticism, largely because they’re anonymous, unlike the first three allegations made against Kavanaugh, in which Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick went on the record to tell their stories of Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct. One of the new claims came in the...
