  • Fox News Pollster Braun Research Misrepresented Impeachment Poll: Analysis

    The New York Post ^ | 10/12/2019 | Mary Kay Linge
    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...
  • Baltimore mayor who resigned after kickback scandal sells home for $75,000

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Property records show former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, who resigned in May, has sold her Maryland home for less than half of its assessed value. The Baltimore Sun reports records show she sold one of her two Ashburton homes for $75,000 to Boaz Alternative Energy and Technologies LLC in July. Property records list the home’s assessed value as $187,700. Pugh resigned in May under pressure amid a flurry of investigations into whether she arranged bulk sales of her self-published children’s books to disguise hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks. She’s still being investigated at the state...

    President Donald Trump’s shocking request Thursday on the White House lawn that not only Ukraine, but also China, should investigate the Bidens, may have shown his open defiance of impeachment threats, but it also gave major air time to the innuendo the president and his allies have been trying to spread about Hunter Biden's links to a company funded by a Chinese investor. While the substance of news reports focused on the brazenness of the president’s publicly calling on foreign governments to investigate a rival, their headlines and chyrons often communicated a simpler message: “Trump: Ukraine & China Should Investigate...

    The unidentified whistleblower at the CIA makes scores of references to Rudolph W Giuliani in the complaint against president Trump with most of the information coming from Mr. Giuliani's own public statements and news reports. Whistleblower complaint's typically contain inside information not known to investigators until they are tipped off. In the case of Mr. Trump's lawyer, who is a private citizen, congressional Democrats could have gathered most of the whistleblower's tidbits about Mr. Giuliani from the internet. ...

    Sometimes, when a news story is still unfolding in real time, we can’t do much better than to hazard a guess about how it will affect the polls. Of course, we can also not hazard a guess — that is, we can not say anything about it at all. But given that I wrote yesterday about public opinion surrounding the impeachment of President Trump, this is one time when I think it’s worth weighing in on the latest development; namely, the White House’s decision to release, on Wednesday, Trump’s reconstructed conversation (note: not a verbatim transcript) with Ukrainian president Volodymyr...

    The so-called whistleblower "scandal" that the media is hyping up every which way has Democrats once again falling over each other to declare another "impeachable offense," despite having virtually no details of the conversation between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. But, like everything else that's been thrown at Trump, this appears to be another phony scandal. The Daily Wire's Ashe Schow reported Saturday that the whistleblower complaint "is nothing more than a rumor reported by someone in the intelligence community." In fact, CNN reported this fact, but buried it in an article: The whistleblower didn't have direct knowledge of...

    An extended discussion about his son’s business dealings isn’t helpful to Biden’s electability argument. Joe Biden had a chance to excoriate Donald Trump on Friday after a blockbuster report detailed how the president pushed Ukrainian investigators to investigate Biden’s son. Instead, Biden was circumspect and measured in a comment to reporters. Only hours later, after Biden and his advisors weighed more facts and after Democrats renewed calls for impeaching Trump, did the former vice president’s campaign issue a broader and stronger statement. The time it took Biden to unleash his tougher comments – which stopped just short of urging impeachment...

    New reports from the fake news media suggest that President Trump may have asked the government of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden’s corrupt dealings, and the progressive globalist resistance is crying ‘impeachment.’ Au contraire. American patriots everywhere should be thanking President Trump. It’s about damn time the deep state oligarchs face consequences for self-dealing and other nefarious activity.

    Conventional wisdom dictates that taking bribes, frequenting prostitutes or shooting someone in broad daylight are good ways to end a political career. But in New York, a number of politicians forced out of office in the wake of a scandal have tried to get back in the game. Some run right away to avoid fading into obscurity, while others lie low to let things quiet down – or to serve out a prison sentence – before seeking office once again. These comeback candidates hold out hope that voters will give them a second chance – and every now and again,...

    BALTIMORE — Friends of former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh say her health has improved but that she’s continuing to keep a low public profile until the investigations concerning her self-published book deals are complete. **SNIP** Shortly after hiring Harrison, though, Pugh resigned amid intense public scrutiny over her sale of self-published children’s books to entities with business relationships with the city. The deals were revealed in a series of articles in The Baltimore Sun that began March 13. Pugh’s story shifted as she tried to account for the first deal to be disclosed, struck with the University of Maryland Medical...

    FBI is implicated in destroying evidence to benefit Clinton.. In breaking news, the American Center for Law and Justice or ACLJ (Jay Sekulow's organization, not related to his role as the President's attorney), has obtained actual copies of the immunity agreements pertaining to Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson in the Hillary email scandal. This was a stunning litigation win, hard-fought after years of litigation by the ACLJ attorneys, who were unable to extract the documents through the normal FOIA processes, due to a lack of cooperation by the government. In reviewing what the agreements uncovered, keep in mind that Cheryl...

    Former President Bill Clinton’s connection to since-convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was established through British heiress and longtime Epstein pal Ghislaine Maxwell, who also became a friend of former first daughter Chelsea, according to a new report Sunday. Clinton’s family grew close with Maxwell after Clinton left office in early 2001, Politico reported. “The Clintons were relatively intimate with her,” a friend of Maxwell’s told the Web site. A person familiar with the relationship also described Maxwell as “the contact between Epstein and Clinton.” “She ended up being close to the family because she and Chelsea ended up becoming close,” the...

    n 2002, Donald Trump was a source for a New York magazine profile of Jefferey Epstein, who was denied bail on Thursday in New York. Epstein faces charges of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and the sex trafficking of underage girls—allegedly as young as 14. Seventeen years ago, Epstein was a secretive billionaire whom the magazine dubbed an “international moneyman of mystery.” Donald Trump, a less reclusive billionaire, gave insight into the character and personality of his friend, Epstein. “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump said at the time. “He’s a lot of fun to be with....

Teddy killed the 28-year-old "girl," as he called her, and he was allowed to plead guilty to ... leaving the scene of an accident. Not vehicular homicide, or drunk driving, or reckless driving, or...

We love you. We know what they are saying about you is false.’" In February, Scripps college associated professor Vanessa...
