    Facebook abruptly censored the account of President Trumpís chief social media guru, blocking him for simply responding to a question from a reader. Dan Scavino Jr. said on Facebook that his page was blocked without notice. ďAMAZING. WHY ARE YOU STOPPING ME from replying to comments followers have left me - on my own Facebook Page!!?? People have the right to know. Why are you silencing me??? Please LMK! Thanks,Ē he wrote today. Scavino is responsible for several of the president's and White House's social media accounts. He has been with the president for years. His accounts have a tremendous...

    There should be no doubt the American people are not fooled by the nearly three years of the politically charged Ďwitch huntí against President Donald Trump. In growing numbers a greater majority of people, who are exhausted of being the pawns of Trumpís enemies, both Democrats and yes, some Republicans, want it to stop. Those enemies have worked diligently for two years to turn the nation against a sitting president and have him impeached. Itís now backfiring. Why? Itís simple: truth. There is no evidence that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia. No matter which way his enemies try...

    This feature is brought to you by the Wouldn’t It Be Nice department of New York State News. After yet another wave of liberal policies being signed into law and sending more sensible citizens fleeing the state, New York Republicans have once again resurrected a favorite plan from days past. Republican Assemblyman David DiPietro has introduced a bill that would split up the Empire State into three sections. This wouldn’t result in two new states, but rather three autonomous regions, each with their own governor and legislature. (Washington Times) For decades, David DiPietro has watched his community in western...

    A powerful General Assembly committee voted Friday to revise Gov. Larry Hoganís more than $46 billion budget proposal to provide millions more in funding for Marylandís public schools, while cutting some of the Republican governorís prized initiatives. Led by Baltimore Democrat Maggie McIntosh, the House Appropriations Committee approved a spending plan that provides about $320 million more for operating Marylandís public schools. That would be the first step toward implementing recommendations from the so-called Kirwan Commission, which has proposed ambitious new programs to boost student performance. The committeeís spending plan also includes $500 million for public school construction and $46...

    House Republicansí use of a century-old legislative procedure that helps the minority party alter or oppose measures advanced by the majority has exposed significant divisions among Democrats. Now some House Democrats want to do away with the procedure, called a motion to recommit. It allows a lawmaker in the minority to move that a bill be sent back to a committee for a particular reason. In a letter to Pelosi and three other Democrat leaders, 17 freshman Democrats ask them to ďend abuse of the MTR,Ē referring to the motion to recommit. The two freshmen, Reps. Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania...

    Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer is setting his sights on two of President Donald Trumpís fiercest defenders in Congress: Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Mark Meadows of North Carolina. Steyerís Need to Impeach PAC is launching a week-long TV ad campaign in districts currently held by the two GOP members of the House oversight committee ó one week after Michael Cohen, Trumpís former lawyer and fixer, presented evidence to the committee of alleged criminal conduct committed by the president. The ads are the first from Need to Impeach aimed at specific Republican members on the issue and will cost...

    The one policy area where conservatives could still count on most Republicans to stand firm and resist Leftist Democratic efforts ó even those considered solidly within the ĎGOP Establishmentí ó was so-called ďclimate change,Ē but not even that resistance appears to be cracking. More Republicans are beginning to embrace the Ďclimate scienceí claiming that human activity is disrupting the Earthís weather and climate patterns to the detriment of everyone on the planet. One former GOP stalwart was Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois, who at one time forcefully pushed back against allegations of human-caused climate change by invoking the Bible and...

    I often wonder who didnít love Donald Trump. I often wonder who left an affection void that he has tried to fill by winning attention, which is not the same thing. Heís turned his life into a marketing strategy. As Michael Cohen said in his testimony on Wednesday, even the presidential campaign was a marketing campaign to build the Trump brand. In turning himself into a brand heís turned himself into a human shell, so brittle and gilded that there is no place for people close to him to attach. His desperate attempts to be loved have made him unable...

    After more than five hours of deliberation Wednesday, a jury found a trash truck driver not guilty in a fatal 2018 train crash. Dana Naylor Jr., 31, initially was charged with involuntary manslaughter and maiming while under the influence after authorities said he drove a Time Disposal garbage truck onto train tracks on Jan. 31, 2018, and was struck by a chartered Amtrak train carrying Republican members of Congress. The collision killed Chris Foley and severely injured Dennis Eddy. Both men were passengers in the trash truck. The DUI maiming charge was dropped Wednesday morning after being rendered moot by...
  • Senate fails to pass bill protecting infants surviving abortion

    02/25/2019 4:08:26 PM PST · by blueyon · 192 replies ^ | 2/25/19 | newsroom
    Today, the United States Senate voted on an anti-infanticide bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation needed 60 votes to pass, and it failed by a vote of 53 in favor and 44 against. The bill stated that ďif an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.Ē The 2002 Born Alive Infants Protection Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush, established that any...

    Buffalo News ^ | Jerry Zremski
    Rep. Chris Collins' lawyers appear to be honing a new argument to press against the federal prosecutors in New York who charged the Republican lawmaker from Clarence with insider trading: It's none of your business. That's the key new message underlying a host of legal documents the Collins defense team filed in federal court in Manhattan earlier this month. Why, the Collins defense team appears to be asking, is Collins being prosecuted in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York for an alleged violation Ė launching a series of insider stock trades Ė that supposedly started with...

    What does it take to get ahead in today's world? If I were a young person entering politics, I'd be looking for the best rťsumť-enhancers, to see what sort of qualifications and accomplishments are shared by those "getting ahead" in today's political arena. Who are all these people getting ahead, and how are they doing it? After serving as a Chicago community organizer and Illinois state senator, Barack Obama rose from a pedestrian three years as a U.S. senator to become the 44th president of the United States. Coming out of a corrupt city and a corrupt state with corrupt...

    ďHas Republican Resistance to Trump Collapsed?Ē The familiar question, offered up many times and in many variations since 2016, appeared in The New York Times. This time, it served as the headline for an opinion piece by GOP strategist (and Trump critic) Liz Mair. Writing from ďinside the belly of the beast,Ē she stated that President Donald Trump is the king of all he surveys, pointing out that ďthe NeverTrump movement has disintegratedĒ and that the president can boast of a ďnear 90 percent approval rating among Republicans.Ē Itís true, Republicans love Trump. They love him as much or more...

    ...snip..... Multiple defendants admit they have hired the Georgia Speaker knowing he would keep their cases from ever going to trial. They could outlast the memories of their victims. No judge is going to force the Speaker to go to trial. Georgia Republicans are enabling this and letting it happen. By keeping David Ralston as Speaker, they are preventing justice from happening. They are preventing rape victims from getting closure. They are preventing repeat abusers from ever having to face a jury for their crimes. This is not a right versus left issue. This is not a Republican versus Democrat...

    In the 116th Congress, if youíre a Democrat, youíre either a socialist, a baby killer or an anti-Semite. That, at least, is what Republicans want voters to think, as they seek to demonize Democrats well in advance of the 2020 elections by painting them as left-wing crazies who will destroy the American economy, murder newborn babies and turn a blind eye to bigotry against Jews. The unusually aggressive assault, which Republican officials and strategists outlined in interviews last week, is meant to strangle the new Democratic majority in its infancy. It was set in motion this month by President Trump,...
