  • COMMENTARY: Donald Trump must restore election integrity

    It’s no secret that I believe we have a big problem in America. We have lost “election integrity.” It’s no secret that I believe voter fraud is going on across America — with Democrats winning races based on mysterious, magical ballots appearing out of nowhere. It’s no secret I believe illegal aliens are voting in large numbers. But the time for talk is over. Now is the time for solutions and actions — specifically executive orders by President Donald Trump. He must act alone because Congress never will. Democrats will never fix the system. Democrats claim there is no voter...

    For a quarter-century, Republicans have dominated Texas politics so much thaFor a quarter-century, Republicans have dominated Texas politics so much that the Democratic minority has often been an afterthought. The big political battles in Austin have been fought between conservative and centrist factions within the GOP, as Democrats watch from the sidelines. But Democratic gains in this year’s midterm elections on the federal, state and county level show the prospect that Texas will become a swing state — a promise Democrats have made for years — is slowly coming to fruition.t the Democratic minority has often been an afterthought.

    Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes thinks racism was 'probably' a factor in the backlash against her for the South Florida office missing Thursday's recount deadline in a Senate race. As about two dozen protesters stood outside her headquarters Friday, including Bikers For Trump, Snipes, who is black, admitted she thought the criticism may have been amplified because of her race. When asked specifically if she believed her heritage could be playing a part in the hostile response she declined to elaborate but told the Guardian, 'Probably. Probably'.

    It's very humbling to lose and I hope he learns from it," McCain, whose late husband, Sen. John McCain, sparred regularly with Trump, told CBS News. She said she hopes the midterm results will take Trump "back to basics." "I hope he learns from it and realizes that our country needs a strong leader and not a negative Nancy, if I can put it in such a basic term," she said. "We need our president. We need a White House that's strong, we need a White House that's not sparring with each other. And right now I think we're --...
  • Trump signs bill cementing cybersecurity agency at DHS

    The Hill ^ | 11/16/2018 | Olivia Beavers
    President Trump on Friday signed into law a bill that cements the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) role as the main agency overseeing civilian cybersecurity, with a focus on securing federal networks and protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats. The cybersecurity branch known as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will now be elevated to the same stature as other units within DHS, such as Secret Service or the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The bill Trump signed Friday, which unanimously passed the House earlier this week, also rebrands DHS’ main cybersecurity unit, known as National Protection and Programs...
  • McConnell sets up votes on worst of Trump nominees, gives the finger to Jeff Flake over his threats

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has apparently decided to give a middle finger to Sen. Jeff Flake, the retiring Arizona Republican who says he'll vote against judicial nominees in committee and on the floor until McConnell allows a floor vote on his legislation to protect the Mueller investigation. At the end of the day Thursday, McConnell filed cloture on two of the very worst of Trump's nominees: district court nominee Thomas Farr of North Carolina and 8th Circuit nominee Jonathan Kobes. The votes will happen when the Senate returns after Thanksgiving. Farr has been waiting for a vote since the...

    This will be a weekly post. Count remains at 84 judges confirmed. 53 District Court judges 29 Circuit Court judges 2 Supreme Court justices This week Senator Jeff Flake said he will not vote to confirm (either in Judiciary or on the floor) any further judges until a bill to protect Robert Mueller is voted on. McConnell killed such a bill and Senator John Barasso of Wyoming said that the Senate will confirm judges with or without Jeff Flake. On January 3rd, this obstacle to conservatism will be off the Judiciary Committee and out of the Senate and confirmations will...

    In the wake of Election 2018, analysts have delved deeply into a seemingly limitless supply of data points to explain the details of what happened. What role did suburban women play? Or health care? Was there a Kavanaugh effect? This obsession with details may be causing us to miss the bigger picture of what's going on. Donald Trump became the fourth consecutive president to win the presidency with his party in control of Congress and then lose control. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama have all been there before. This swapping back and forth of political...

    Politico and CNN have done the math and report that incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson cannot win the Florida recount — barring a miracle. To have both of these far-left outlets, two enthusiastic cheerleaders for Democrats, finally report this painfully obvious truth, is a major blow to Nelson’s ongoing litigation and public relations efforts. Currently, Republican Governor Rick Scott holds a solid 12,000 (give or take) vote lead over Nelson, and anyone who knows anything about recounts know that recounts do not flip the winner unless the difference is much closer to 1,000.

Sean Hannity: I have information that various pieces of evidence have been turned over to law enforcement that know things that happened in Broward County and Palm Beach. Can you confirm that? Pam Bondi: No Sean, it’s an impending FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) investigation. FDLE has opened a hotline. Folks can call in if they have information. But right now it is an impending investigation. I laid out in my letter we do believe there is plenty of...
  • Razor wire now covers border wall where 'vanguard' of migrant caravan taunted U.S.

    Hours after images of migrants climbing a border wall in San Diego went viral, the Homeland Security Department deployed razor wire Wednesday to prevent a repeat. The immigrants, who said they were the vanguard of the caravans streaming north through Mexico, ascended the fence Tuesday in a display of defiance. Video and photos showed them cheering and jeering atop the slat-style fence. Although no arrests or confrontations were reported, Homeland Security took immediate steps to try to keep others from climbing by deploying concertina wire, which coils over itself, creating a thorough barrier. “As we have said repeatedly, being a...

    What Democrats can't win legitimately, they steal through cheating and fraud. And it appears the rest of the country has given up on California. Don't believe me? Read on. As American voters are watching the election fraud take place in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties in Florida, are California Democrats also cheating their way to power? Our state certainly isn’t immune from cheating, as evidenced in June 2016, when I was contacted by voters from all across California that their political party designations had been changed. “The electronic vote rigging in California appears to have been designed to keep Bernie supporters...

    RUSH: This is kind of a strange picture to me. Right now Senate Republican leaders are holding a press conference on today’s leadership election. That’s right. Republican Senate leaders had an election today, and that determined who the new leaders for the Republican majority in the Senate are. Fine and dandy. While that is going on, in Palm Beach County they’re gonna have to start their recount over because the voting machines overheated. The caravan has reached the southern border in Tijuana. I thought that was just an election stunt created by Trump? Remember the media telling us there was...

    Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump had a lawyer submit a letter containing evidence of ballot tampering in Broward County to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi. According to the letter sent by Cox’s lawyer Derek A. Schwartz, while outside the Broward Supervisor of Elections main office, Cox and other members of Bikers for Trump learned of twelve colored plastic zip tie tags that were each stamped with a seven digit serial code. “The tags were discovered by other citizens on the ground near the loading dock area outside the BSOE building,” the letter explains. He then went on to provide...

    Senators returned to Washington Tuesday and immediately picked up where they left off — processing President Trump’s judicial nominees, over the objections of Democrats. The Judiciary Committee held a hearing for Paul B. Matey, nominated to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and for four district court picks. Mr. Matey’s nomination is particularly controversial because it marks another round in the fight over Senate traditions and courtesies and their abuse in the era of Mr. Trump. Mr. Matey is slated to fill a seat on the appeals court that’s traditionally ascribed to New Jersey. But that state’s senators, both...
