    No Ticket to Ride (with apologies to John and Paul) I think I’m gonna be sad, No bus ride today. The man that’s driving me mad, Is making me pay. He took my ticket to ride, He took my ticket to ride, He took my ticket to ride, And he don’t care. He said if dealing with me, I must be in town. Those sites I won’t get to see, I’ll sit on the ground. He took my ticket to ride, He took my ticket to ride, He took my ticket to ride, And he don’t care. By now I...

    The San Francisco congresswoman has apparently taken to flying in style. And not just any style but military charter style, according to e-mails released this week. Pelosi's staff has allegedly been "berating" military officials to get the best planes possibly for the speaker to fly across country, according to e-mails obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch (you can read all the emails on their site) and first reported by The New York Post. "Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement....

    In December Twitter legal issued TGP’s Associate Editor, Cristina Laila a warning that she violated Pakistan’s blasphemy laws over a tweet wherein she called for burkas to be banned in the United States. The specific Pakistani blasphemy laws Cristina violated are punishable by life imprisonment or death and Twitter happily delivered the threat to her. Twitter, an American company, warned an American citizen who was exercising their First Amendment rights about Pakistan’s Islamic blasphemy laws. In a years-old, since deleted tweet, Cristina called for the burka to be banned; this offended the Pakistani government enough to force Twitter to spring...

    The lead front page story of the fake paper read: "Unpresidented. Trump hastily departs White House, ending crisis." Fake print copies of The Washington Post were floating around the nation's capital Wednesday. The newspaper said it was aware someone had produced forged newspapers with fake headlines and stories inside. A fake website was also apparently created. The newspaper said it was looking into who created the fake papers. "There are fake print editions of The Washington Post being distributed around downtown D.C., and we are aware of a website attempting to mimic The Post’s. They are not Post products, and...

    A newspaper refused to publish the obituary of an 87 year-old woman which blamed Donald Trump for killing her. News and politics junkie Francis Irene Finley Williams frequently complained to daughter Cathy Duff about the Republican president, and blamed him for ‘contributing to her decline.’ So when ‘passionate Democrat’ Williams died just before Thanksgiving 2018, Duff submitted an obituary to her local paper, the Louisville Courier-Journal, that ended with: ‘Her passing was hastened by her continued frustration with the Trump administration.’ But staff at the paper in Louisville, Kentucky, warned they could not run the $1,684 advert with the poltical...

Tulsi Gabbard, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley have also reportedly been tapped for the committee by Democratic House leaders, and a vote finalizing their appointments is expected within days.

    Early in the new year, the first of what are expected to be several dozen Democratic presidential wannabes are making preliminary announcements to supporters and the media of their intentions to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. The first Latino politician out of the gate is Julián Castro, who announced his candidacy on Saturday, January 12. Castro is the 44-year-old former mayor of San Antonio who served as the secretary of housing and urban development during the last three years of the Obama administration. He is the grandson of a Mexican woman who "crossed" to the U.S. in 1922. Almost...

    LOS ANGELES – Barack Obama hasn’t been the president for nearly two years, but his fame is still spreading – at least when it comes to naming things after him. The nation’s first African-American president need not go far around the country these days to find something that carries his name. There’s Barack Obama Way in New Albany Township, Indiana, and Barack Obama Boulevard in Pahokee, Florida. There’s a long list of schools now named for him, like Barack Obama Academy for Academic & Civic Development in Plainfield, New Jersey, and Barack Obama Elementary School in Richmond, Virginia. Obama even...

    Speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D.-Ore.) told President Donald Trump that he has “a dark and evil heart.” “You, Mr. President, have created a crisis, a humanitarian crisis,” Merkley said. “The arrivals on the border are not the crisis; it is your hardened heart, your dark and evil heart, your war on children; the deliberate strategy of inflicting trauma on children in order to send a message of deterrence, a political message of deterrence,” he said. Merkley also said Trump had created “internment camps” for children. …

    Democrats will not negotiate with President Donald Trump to end the partial government shutdown – because Trump is an “amoral hostage-taker”- Hawaii Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono declared Thursday. Speaking to members of the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) at a protest in Washington, D.C., Sen. Hirono said Trump “doesn’t give a rat” about what’s right or wrong, so he’s holding 800,000 federal employees hostage by shutting down the government to “get his vanity wall”:
  • HART: Government’s shutdown: Notice anything different? Exactly

    News Herold ^ | Jan 13, 2019 | By Ron Hart | Syndicated columnist
    Shouldn’t there be chaos? The government shut down Dec. 21 over Sen. Chuck Schumer and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi petulantly not wanting Trump to have any border wall funding. The federal government spends $4.4 trillion a year; the $5 billion Trump wanted is one-tenth of 1 percent of that. About the same percent that Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren is Native American. If you are like me, you are more worried about government starting back up than it being shut down. Who will open our open-air national parks? Who will answer the phones when we call? Who will give us the runaround at...

    Call it the meme that was born almost simultaneously among many who viewed the livestream by Beto O'Rourke of his visit to a dental office where he got his teeth cleaned. And that mocking meme, even from many liberals, was "colonoscopy." Yes, that is what the way too intimate view of Beto's orifice inspired in terms of the meme about the other orifice at his opposite end.  Before we get to the mocking meme, let us take a look at Beto's Instagram livestream that inspired the mockery. Oh, and a saliva slurping sound grossout alert is a mandatory warning before you dare...

    Former Senate Leader Harry Reid endorsed Mitt Romney as the next Republican presidential nominee in 2020. “I think that he would be a great foil against Trump, and I think that Republicans may even allow him to be nominated to be the Republican nominee,” Reid said. “That would be good for the country.” The former Democratic Senate Leader praised Romney in a recent interview with Nevada radio station KNPR.

    ... For the next three days (on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday), the TSA will be closing one of the checkpoints at Miami International Airport early. Specifically, the Terminal G checkpoint will be closing at 1PM. Flights that were scheduled to depart after that time will be shifted to other terminals. Per a TSA spokesperson: “Due to an increased number of TSA screeners not reporting to work, we have decided to take this precautionary step and relocate about 12 flights to adjoining concourses in the afternoons.” Apparently Miami Airport is seeing double the number of screeners call in sick as usual,...

    Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that President Trump wanted to shut down immigration to the U.S. to make the country “pure” from immigrants. Hayes initially asserted those who support a border wall wanted an "ethnically pure America." Regarding the partial government shutdown, Hayes asked her if she thought “a bill can be made or do you think this is fundamentally existential and cannot be made.”

    A Q13 editor was fired Thursday, after it was revealed that they had doctored a clip of President Trump’s Tuesday Oval Office address. A listener to my program sent me a video that appears to show a deceptively edited video of President Trump’s speech from the Oval Office. We performed a side-by-side comparison of the video from our listener, apparently taken by a smart phone recording of Q13, to the raw video of Trump’s speech from CNN. That comparison revealed the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced —...

    Tuesday night, President Trump delivered a powerful speech from the Oval Office regarding the need for strong border security. During the speech, Trump laid out specific facts explaining why the country needs to secure the border and how his plan would accomplish this. According to Fox News, at one point during the speech, Trump directly addressed his colleagues, stating, "Wealthy politicians ... don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside." The speech was effective and convincing. Prior to the speech, Democrats demanded an opportunity to issue a rebuttal....
