Being interested by the caravan and America and how to deal with it. I just… I just want you to hear this. We have two bites. Here’s No. 1. KASICH: We have a caravan coming north. We don’t want all those people coming across our border. And there are ways to deal with it. I believe that if we would check those who are legitimately in need...

    Scott Kelly, a retired American astronaut with multiple space flights under his belt, apologized Sunday after quoting Winston Churchill and calling the 20th century British prime minister "one of the greatest leaders of modern times." "Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill. My apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities, racist views which I do not support. My point was we need to come together as one nation. We are all Americans. That should transcend partisan politics," Kelly wrote on Twitter in the evening.

    Candace Owens, the Communications Director for Turning Point USA, issued a challenge to Avengers 4 star and Captain America actor Chris Evans after he expressed “racist sentiments.” By the way, @ChrisEvans—since you seem to suggest that black people who don’t agree with you are “stupid”, I openly challenge you to a debate. @Politicon is in a couple of weeks. Why don’t you put your racist sentiments on full display and debate a black conservative?—Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) October 1, 2018 (snip) After Kanye West appeared on Saturday Night Live wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, the superstar musician would follow...
  • ‘New York Post’ Cover Mocks Trump-Bashing Meghan McCain as ‘The Meg’

    The New York Post mocked Meghan McCain as “The Meg” on its Sunday cover after she used the opportunity of her father’s funeral to attack President Trump. “The Meg” is a reference to a plus-sized shark in the late-summer hit movie The Meg, starring Jason Staham. The New York Post cover is just one part of a brewing backlash against McCain and the overall funeral service for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), which turned into an unseemly partisan rally Saturday with speakers like former Presidents Barack Obama and even George W. Bush trashing President Trump, who Sen. McCain refused to invite...

    Michigan’s primary is August 7 and last weekend the Progressive People’s Heroine from the Republic of New York came to my state to promote her equally progressive choice for Michigan’s governor. Why anyone should care who a socialist bartender from the Bronx thinks should be governor of our state is beyond me, but here she is, in her F-Me boots, promoting fellow socialist, Abdul El-Sayed. Yeah, let’s elect more of that.If you’re keeping track, El-Sayed was likewise endorsed by Bernie Sanders last week so it looks like he’s pretty much got the Progressive Democrats United votes locked up. And he’s...

    She’s not even in Congress yet, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party’s rising star and unapologetic socialist, endorsed a slate of candidates in last night’s primaries. While all eyes were on Ohio’s 12th congressional district, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, and Washington also had primaries. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Cori Bush running in Missouri’s first congressional district and Abdul El-Sayed and Fayrouz Saad in Michigan. El-Sayed and Saad were running for governor and Congress respectively; Saad was running in the Mitten State’s 11th congressional district.  We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country. From @KanielaIng & @SaadforCongress...

    A public university is paying a radical 89-year-old linguist hundreds of thousands of dollars to teach his famously leftist brand of politics, according to records obtained by Judicial after a months-long battle with the taxpayer-funded institution. Judicial Watch launched an investigation after the University of Arizona (UA), located in Tucson with an enrollment of about 40,000, announced that it hired Noam Chomsky to teach a general education course for undergraduates titled “What is Politics?” In the announcement UA describes Chomsky as a “world-renowned linguist” and one of the “most cited scholars in modern history.” The reality is that Chomsky is...

    One of President Trump's most vocal critics in the U.S. Senate said Friday that he once cried “tears of rage” over the Trump administration’s rhetoric. U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., made the remark at the Netroots Nation Conference in New Orleans, where other liberal speakers were to include U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. The annual convention drew thousands of liberal activists and offered a chance for Democrats considering presidential runs to win over supporters, the Washington Times reported.

    by Chuck Rudolph | 24NewsA Swedish student was hailed as a “hero” and captured worldwide social media attention after she stopped the deportation of an Afghan migrant by refusing to sit down on a plane. But despite a week of mainstream media not even asking why the man was being deported, it has finally emerged that the Afghan Muslim migrant had been convicted of a "violent assault" on a Swedish citizen, among other crimes, and had been rejected for asylum in the nation. The young woman live streamed the whole incident and it was viewed nearly 5 million times on Facebook...

    Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and was asked a simple question that any politician worth his salt would hit out of the park for a home run. How was she going to pay for the trillions of dollars in spending for all the free stuff she was proposing? Daily Caller: "This is an excellent, excellent question," she replied.  "I sat down with a Nobel Prize economist last week – I can't believe I can say that, it's really weird – But one of the things that we saw is, if people pay...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, appearing on Trevor Noah’s show Thursday night, advocated for a “moral and ethical economy” that provides free health care, free college education, and “bold action on climate change” for the American people. “We’re here to talk about wages; we’re here to talk about education; we’re here to talk about saving our planet; we’re here to talk about a carbon tax; we’re here to talk about people paying their fair share, and we’re here to talk about saving the country, frankly,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “How do you pay for these?” Noah asked the 28-year-old who defeated Rep.

    'When God sends you to do something, you just do it!' Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has been one of President Trump's most outspoken critics, recently going so far as to encourage people to publicly harass members of the Trump administration. On Sunday, however, Waters suggested in a church sermon in Los Angeles that she's on a divine mission to stop the president, blasting the Trump administration on a range of issues.

    Last week, I wrote a column arguing that liberals concerned about ongoing failures in the American experiment should consider socialist remedies. I knew there would be quite a bit of disagreement. And I knew that most — though, crucially, not all — of it would unfold in bad faith. What is bad faith? It’s a term coined by the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre that means, in the helpful gloss of George Mason University anthropologist Roger Lancaster, when you tell a lie and you start to believe it, then forget it was a lie. In the argumentative context, engaging in bad faith...

Seventeen people were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

    Vallejo Times-Herald ^ | February 11, 2018 | Erwin Chemerinsky
    It is increasingly clear that President Donald Trump and the Republicans are engaging in a campaign to smear and discredit special prosecutor Robert Mueller. All of this is an effort to undermine an investigation into whether serious federal crimes occurred that potentially implicate individuals at the highest levels of the government, including Trump and members of his family. The need for an independent criminal investigation is clear. Was there illegal collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russians? Has there been a cover-up that constitutes obstruction of justice? If so, who is responsible? Contrary to the president’s assertion, this is not...

    Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism. Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that "more than most people, a senator lives by his words" but that "occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words." Choking up, he said: "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies." He singled out the victims...
