  • Leftist Anti-Trump ‘Porn’ Lawyer Calls on the Left to Punch Back

    On October 24th, leftist lawyer and porn star hobbyist, Michael Avenatti, tweeted out the words “punch back.” While the tweet was sent to Stephen King it seems it may actually have been meant for the woman he was sharing his apartment with. Not long after this tweet, a woman who wasn’t aware that she needed to 'punch back' against the attorney was beaten senseless by the tiny typhoon of temper that Avenatti had become.

    Republicans overwhelmingly view President Trump as likable, but Democrats aren’t as enthusiastic about likely new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But among all voters, both Trump and Pelosi aren’t very beloved.

    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...

    The Senate is bracing for an end-of-the-year brawl over President Trump's judicial nominations. Republicans view filling the lifetime court seats as their top priority and are expected to confirm as many nominees as possible before the Senate adjourns for the year, infuriating Democrats and their allies who are powerless to stop Trump’s picks. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is already teeing up votes for two nominations — Jonathan Kobes to be an 8th Circuit Court judge and Thomas Farr to be a district court judge — for when senators return from their Thanksgiving recess. And Republicans expect McConnell to barrel...

    Following a protracted recount battle, three-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson conceded Sunday, acknowledging GOPGov. Rick Scott has been elected to replace him in January. “Well, things worked out a little differently than Grace and I had hoped,” Mr. Nelson’s statement read. “But let me say, I by no measure feel defeated. And that’s because I have had the privilege of serving the people of Florida and our country for most of my life.” As he left the political stage, Mr. Nelson, 76, also took a parting shot at President Trump. “We have to move beyond a politics that aims...

    PARADISE, Calif. (AP) – President Donald Trump acknowledged Californians suffering from twin tragedies, walking through the ashes of a mobile home and RV park in a small northern town all-but-destroyed by deadly wildfires and privately consoling people grieving after a mass shooting at a popular college bar outside Los Angeles. “This has been a tough day when you look at all of the death from one place to the next,” Trump said on Saturday before flying back to Washington. Trump’s visits to areas of Northern and Southern California in the aftermath of unprecedented wildfires that have killed more than 70...

    Rep. Adam Schiff — along with “Crooked Hillary Clinton,” “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” and “Crazy Maxine Waters” — has long been a target of mockery on Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. But in a post Sunday, the president may have coined his crudest nickname yet for a political rival. “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate,” the president wrote online, “but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Schiff fired back 35 minutes later, quoting...

    The FIRST STEP Act is the beginning of a transformation of America’s federal criminal-justice system into what it should have always been: a system that makes America safer. This legislation unites conservatives, police and civil rights advocates, civil libertarians, business leaders and supporters of social justice. Supporting this legislation means supporting ideas that all Americans want - from police to Democrats to Republicans - an America that is fair, an America that puts Americans first, and that makes America safe. The fact that law enforcement groups like the Fraternal Order of Police and The International Association of Chiefs of...

    Rep. Adam Schiff of California on Sunday said Democrats will be keeping a close eye on acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, deeming him a “flawed appointment” who cannot be trusted to guide the Russia investigation. Mr. Schiff, who is poised to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said his panel will root out and expose any efforts Mr. Whitaker takes to curb special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into potential interference in the 2016 election. The acting attorney general has criticized the scope of the investigation in the past. Mr. Schiff also said Mr. Trump’s decision to tap Mr. Whitaker...

    It is disgraceful enough for CNN and other networks to allow such bad behavior on their airwaves, but the President and his Press Secretary have a right to prevent it from occurring during their news conferences In the aftermath of U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly’s ruling that reinstated the White House press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta, the President outlined some overdue changes that will be implemented. Hereafter, the White House will be “writing up rules and regulations,” according to the President. He also predicted that “if they don’t listen to the rules and regulations, we’ll end up back...

    President Trump toured the devastation caused by the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history and said he would press for better forest management to prevent future infernos. Speaking to reporters alongside the ashes of a neighborhood in Paradise, Calif., Mr. Trump hailed the efforts of law-enforcement officials and first responders who continue to work to contain the blaze and help victims. “What can you say other than it’s so sad to see? These are great people. Great families, torn apart.” Mr. Trump told reporters after witnessing the devastation in Malibu, his final stop on the trip. “This has...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich was on a three-city swing through New Hampshire this week, potentially feeling out a 2020 run for the White House as a Republican, or as an independent. When CNN asked Kasich during a stop in Manchester, N.H., about how he's calculating his chances, the governor replied, "I don't do math calculations. That's not what I do." "I mean, all options are on the table. And the question is, ultimately, can I have a very positive impact on the country, and I've got lots of people here who were saying to me just -- I was here...

    Being mayor of Portland, Ore., may have gotten to Ted Wheeler. On Thursday, after finishing a speech at the Oregon Health Forum in which he was heckled, Wheeler mumbled, “I can’t wait for the next 24 months to be over,” indicating he may not seek re-election, the Oregonian reported. (TWEET-AT-LINK) "If you know me, you know I mutter quite a bit,” Wheeler said in a statement issued later in the day. “Not one of my most redeeming qualities. I will make a decision next year with my family if I am running for re-election." In previous media interviews, Wheeler has...
