    RUSH: Perhaps the greatest example of Trump derangement syndrome today and what, in a sane world, would be a profoundly embarrassing piece of journalism, which is saying a lot given everything that’s happened during the Trump administration. The Washington Post is beside itself. And if you happen to receive the Washington Post daily email blast that is supposed to tell you what’s hot and what’s interesting and what’s leading the day in Washington Post news coverage, this story is at the top of all the news out there. This story is what the Washington Post apparently is the most proud...
  • Green Book writer called out for falsely claiming New Jersey Muslims cheered 9/11

    Nick Vallelonga, one of the writers and producers of the Golden Globe-winning dramedy Green Book, has deleted his Twitter account after coming under intense criticism for a 2015 tweet in which he repeated Donald Trumps thoroughly debunked claim that Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the Sept. 11 attacks. Vallelongas tweet called Trumps falsehood 100% correct and claimed, Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news. Such claims have been definitively debunked by outlets such as the New York Times and the Washington Post.

    Once again, House Republican leaders last week found themselves having to answer for the offensive statements of Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. This time King further confirmed his insensitivity and evidently racist approach to public policy. The New York Times quoted King asking, "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization how did that language become offensive?" In a frank Washington Post op-ed, Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., asked, Why are Republicans accused of racism? Because were silent on things like this. To their credit, many Republican office holders were quick to condemn the provocative remarks, with Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst tweeting, I...

    President Trumps proposed wall along the United States-Mexico border has soared in popularity with American voters across the board, as he battles a split GOP-Democrat Congress to secure funding for the barrier. The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll reveals a major shift among nearly all demographic groups across the country when it comes to support for a border wall at the southern border. This time last year, the poll claimed that only 34 percent of voters supported a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Today, support for the wall has climbed to 42 percent overall. Most notable, swing voters are increasingly...
  • DC and Puerto Rico share the long-ignored dream of statehood

    Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico share the fundamental aspiration of statehood, although framed within different historical and constitutional contexts. Both jurisdictions are subject to the powers of Congress and have one non-voting member in the House of Representatives. There is also a broad recognition by the majority of the American citizens in each jurisdiction that the only way they can each achieve effective and politically meaningful representation in Congress is through statehood.
  • CNN Host Calls Out Top Democrat Over Party's Hypocrisy On Border Wall

    Steve Guest Twitter Video at link. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) faced some tougher talk from media hosts, for once, regarding the government shutdown that has lasted 20+ days now. President Trump promised border security during the 2016 campaign. He promised to build a wall. He has to follow through on it. It was one of his signature issues. Hes only asking $5 billion for part of his wall. The Democrats are not willing to play ball after reclaiming the House. Last week, Trump offered to re-open the government in exchange for some of the funding. Democrats rejected...

    President Trump declines to answer a final question from the press as he departs the White House Jan. 14, 2019 in Washington, DC. President Trump is digging in his heels on his demand for a border wall, telling aides and allies that he believes he is winning the battle for public support. Over the last 24 hours, Trump has privately touted a Washington Post-ABC News poll indicating that public support for a border wall has increased to 42% from 34% last year, a source familiar with his comments told CNN.

    CNN ^ | 01/14/2019 | Chris Cillizza
    President Donald Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Monday that suggestions he was some sort of Russian agent were totally ridiculous, and insisted that the entire special counsel investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election is a "whole big fat hoax." It's in keeping with his broader approach to the question of Russia's election meddling efforts and ties between those close to his campaign and actors for foreign powers: This is all a sham. Special counsel Robert Mueller is out to get him -- as is the entire FBI. They've got nothing. (The 192...

    RUSH: Okay. So its like Groundhog Day. Its deja vu all over again! The New York Times and the Washington Post with gigantic stories on literally nothing! But headlined to make it look like theres a new development in the Trump-Russia case, and that is that Trump was actually working and reporting to Russia. There is no evidence in these two stories. There is still no evidence and they admit it of any collusion whatsoever. And yet two brand-new and fresh stories about something that I would expect you to be bored silly by now. So the question...

    President Trump on Monday denied that he has been trying to conceal details about his discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin after a pair of explosive press reports over the weekend. "I never worked for Russia," Trump told reporters. "It's a disgrace that you even asked that question because it's a whole big fat hoax. It's just a hoax." Trump also said he doesn't know anything about what happened to the notes taken by an interpreter when he met with Putin last summer in Finland or after other meetings with the Russian leader. The Washington Post reported that Trump has...

    FULL TITLE: Devin Nunes: Counterintelligence bombshell shows FBI leaders 'had no real evidence against the Trump team' Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said the New York Times' bombshell report on a counterintelligence investigation into President Trump's ties to Russia only strengthens the argument that the FBI has no evidence of collusion against the Trump team. "This is yet more evidence that FBI leaders actually had no real evidence against the Trump team," Nunes said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner's Byron York. "Instead, they were simply trying to undermine a president they...

    President Trump on Sunday night mocked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as "Jeff Bozo" in a tweet slamming The Washington Post, which Bezos owns. "So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post," Trump tweeted. "Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!" Trump's tweets came shortly after The National Enquirer came out with the latest in a series of articles about Bezos's divorce from his wife of 25 years. American...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday floated the possibility of renewing his demand to subpoena the translator present during a July 2018 meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreters notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin," Schiff tweeted. "The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now?" ADVERTISEMENT "Shouldnt we find out whether our president is really putting 'America first?'" Schiff wrote, a nod to one of Trump's campaign slogans. Schiff's call comes as a bombshell Washington Post report...

    Let’s accentuate the positive and start with the good. According to WaPo, support for the wall is up since last year. It’s still a minority proposition but as you refine the question to focus on registered voters instead of American adults generally, it’s practically a coin flip:Support for a border barrier is building. Not only that, wall supporters are more dug in on the current standoff than wall opponents are. Overall, Democrats appear somewhat more conciliatory than Republicans. The poll finds that 42 percent of Democrats who oppose the wall say congressional Democrats should refuse to budge even if...

    Celebrity Big Brother has once again dipped into President Trumps former employee rolls for on-air talent: CBS announced Sunday that Anthony Scaramucci, the man who lasted less than two weeks as the White House communications director in 2017, is joining the B-list cast of the Real World-meets-Survivor competition series. Scaramucci follows in the stilettoed footsteps of former Trump staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman, whose salacious tenure on Celebrity Big Brother was marked by headline-grabbing confessionals about the utter chaos behind the scenes at 1600 Penn. While theres no doubt that the Mooch will be dropping gems of his own, as a...

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that hes been told that special counsel Robert Muellers report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia destabilize the United States. Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNNs Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

    Washington Post ^ | January13, 2019 | Scott Clement and Dan Balz
    By a wide margin, more Americans blame President Trump and Republicans in Congress than congressional Democrats for the now record-breaking government shutdown, and most reject the presidents assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll. Support for building a wall on the border, which is the principal sticking point in the stalemate between the president and Democrats, has increased over the past year. Today, 42 percent say they support a wall, up from 34 percent last January. A slight majority of Americans (54 percent) oppose the idea, down from 63...

    ... That is the ultimate statement of political cynicism. What Reid is saying if you consider the comments to Bash last year and those to Terris recently is that the ends justify the means in all cases. It doesn't really matter if what he said about Romney's taxes is wrong. All that matters is that Romney lost. That Romney lost is justification enough for Reid to have made the false allegation. ...

    The White House has begun laying the groundwork for a declaration of national emergency to build President Trumps border wall, including searching for unused money in the Army Corps of Engineers budget, two people with knowledge of the preparations said Thursday. Such a declaration would be certain to set off a firestorm of opposition and would undoubtedly be challenged in court. But it could also be a way out of the current impasse, allowing Trump to cite action on his long-promised wall even without Congress granting his funding demands, and potentially paving the way for the government to reopen. The...
