Fraser Anning, the far-right Australian senator who blamed Muslim immigrants for the New Zealand mosque shootings, was voted out of office during Australia’s elections this weekend.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Sunday morning said that Rep. Justin Amash’s (R-MI) slam against President Donald Trump’s “impeachable conduct” isn’t enough to count as bipartisan support for impeachment proceedings. “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Schiff if Amash’s comment fulfilled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) standard for impeachment requiring support on both sides of the aisle. “I think that what the Speaker has referred to, and I have as well, is can an impeachment be eve...

Trump Thinks AL Abortion Ban Goes Too Far, Says Rape/Incest Should Be Exceptions

President Donald Trump tweeted on late Saturday night that he is “strongly Pro-Life, with the three exceptions – Rape, Incest and protecting the Life of the mother,” indicating that he disagrees with Alabama’s new severe abortion ban. It seems that Trump’s main concern is that too harsh of an anti-abortion law would unify the left. “The Radical Left, with late term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue. We must stick together and Win for Life in 2020,” the President tweeted. “If we...

Ann Coulter Has Twitter Meltdown Over Trump’s New Immigration Proposal

Right-wing provocateur Ann Coulter had a meltdown on Thursday as President Donald Trump unveiled his immigration proposal, which was short on specifics and unlikely to go anywhere. Trump briefly mentioned the border wall during his speech, but he primarily focused on preventing so-called “asylum abuse” and changing the immigration system to prioritize “skilled” applicants. “What happened to the total immigration moratorium?” Coulter seethed in a series of tweets. “We need a break!” What happ...
