WH After Coast Guard Arrest: Trump Has Condemned ‘Violence Against Journalists’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday waved off questions about whether Trump should tone down his rhetoric against journalists following the arrest of a white nationalist Coast Guard lieutenant who allegedly planned to attack Democrats and members of the media. “I certainly don’t think that the President at any point has done anything but condemn violence against journalists or anyone else,” she said. “And in fact, every single time something like this happens, the Pre...

Will the California Republican Party become a dinosaur?

In mid-2016, just before Donald Trump won the presidency, California’s Republican Party was on pace to become the third choice of state voters within three years, the first “major” political party to fall that low since Whigs became extinct just before the Civil War. The pace quickened after that election. Democrats made small gains in voter registration, Republicans suffered losses and the “no party preference” category moved into second place among California’s registered voters even sooner th...

GREENBELT, Md.

CNN Vows To DNC That Sarah Isgur Won’t Participate In Primary Debates

The Democratic National Committee extracted a promise from CNN that Sarah Isgur, the network’s new hire who previously worked as Jeff Sessions’ primary spokeswoman, would not work on Democratic primary debates in any way, The Daily Beast reported. DNC officials were perplexed by the hire, given Isgur’s alleged involvement in a right wing conspiracy theory about the murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich. CNN hired Isgur, who has no journalism background, as a political editor who will coordin...

Lawmakers seek probe of ICE force-feeding of immigrants

Nearly 50 Democratic lawmakers called for a watchdog investigation of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Tuesday after the agency confirmed it had been force-feeding immigrant detainees on a hunger strike.

16 States Sue Trump Admin Over Emergency Declaration To Fund Wall

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California and 15 other states filed a lawsuit Monday against President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration to fund a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released a statement Monday saying the suit alleges the Trump administration’s action violates the Constitution. “President Trump treats the rule of law with utter contempt,” Becerra said. “He knows there is no border crisis, he knows his emergency declaration is unwarranted, a...

Trump Breaks Precedent As President With His 2020 Dem Challengers Punditry

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Kamala Harris had the best campaign roll-out. Amy Klobuchar’s snowy debut showed grit. Elizabeth Warren’s opening campaign video was a bit odd. Take it from an unlikely armchair pundit sizing up the 2020 Democratic field: President Donald Trump. In tweets, public remarks and private conversations, Trump is making clear he is closely following the campaign to challenge him on the ballot. Facing no serious primary opponent of his own — at least so far — Trump is esta...

Democrat’s National Gun Emergency, Forewarned and Forearmed

Opinion by Allan West Democrat's National Gun Emergency, Forewarned and Forearmed USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- In the military, we have a saying, “never get in your enemy’s way when they are self-destructing.” I cannot think of a better adage when it comes to the insidious, absurd, and, yes, stupid, things emanating from the progressive socialist left . . . the folks who have taken control of the Democrat Party. It is somewhat like the movie, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” Some alien life form ...

ICE Stops Force-Feeding Immigrant Detainees On Hunger Strike In Texas

The U.S. government has suddenly stopped force-feeding a group of men on a hunger strike inside an El Paso immigration detention center, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. The dramatic reversal came Thursday as public pressure was mounting on ICE to halt the practice, which involves feeding detainees through nasal tubes against their will. Last week, the United Nations human rights office said the force-feeding of Indian hunger strikers at the facility could violate the U.N. Conven...

Voice Of Reason Nancy Pelosi Calls BS On Trump's "National Emergency"

Say it with us: There is no national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border. But this didn't stop President Donald Trump from declaring one on Friday after being unable to get funding from Congress for his border wall and presiding over the longest government shutdown in U.S. history."I didn’t need to do this," Trump said in his announcement (no, he didn't, agree Democrats) after signing a spending bill to keep the government running. "But I’d rather do it much faster." In the deal, he got about $...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to introduce bill blocking Trump’s ‘fake national emergency’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Joaquin Castro have announced new legislation they intend to introduce as part of an effort to block Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration over the US-Mexico border.

Will Diversity Be the Death of the Democrats?

Anti Gun Democrats U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. But it is the Democratic Party that never ceases to celebrate diversity — racial, religious, ethnic, cultural — as its own and as America's “greatest strength.” Understandably so, for the party is home to a multitude of minorities. It is the domain of the LGBTQ movement. In presidential elections, Democrats win 70 percent of Hispanics, Jews and Asian-Americans, and 90 percent of African-Americ...

Pelosi: Trump Is ‘Making An End Run Around Congress’ With Emergency Declaration

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday said President Donald Trump was “making an end run around Congress” with his pledge to declare a national emergency in order to secure more funds to build a border wall than Congress appropriated. “We will review our options,” Pelosi pledged, saying the Trump’s stated “emergency” was “an illusion that he wants to convey.” Pelosi speculated that future Democratic presidents could declare similar emergencies regarding gun violence or other matte...

Messianic Politics on Display: The Green New Deal and the New Political Order

Since her election to congress last November, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has broken the traditional mold of a freshman legislator in Congress. Freshmen rarely make the headlines. They generally do not sponsor legislation, and they carry little influence, even if they caucus with the majority party. Ocasio-Cortez, however, might be one of the most influential Democrats in the entire nation because of what she represents: a young, vocal, social-media savvy political operative who know...

The long alliance of Democrats and police unions erodes

California’s crime rates soared in the 1970s and became a potent political issue that Republicans used, with great effect, against Democrats by accusing them of being soft on crime. More or less simultaneously, a Democratic Legislature and governor, Jerry Brown, enacted collective bargaining for California’s public employees. Those two seemingly discrete events spawned a clever – perhaps cynical – political bargain between the state’s Democratic politicians and newly empowered law enforcement un...

The Art Of The Kneel: How Trump’s Tactics Kept Shrinking His Wall

No big, beautiful wall after all. After forcing the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, seeing his poll numbers take a hit and stirring consternation from a broad swath of Republicans, President Trump looks poised to accept a bipartisan deal that would get him just $1.375 billion for new border money, not the $5.7 billion in wall money he was seeking. That’s enough for only 55 miles of new physical barriers, and even less than the $1.6 billion he’d been offered by Democrats in pre-sh...
