POLL: Should Trump Permanently Ban Jim Acosta From The White House?

Trump made the right decision by revoking CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass. If anything, he didn’t go far enough.   Acosta should be permanently banned from the White House for his egregious behavior. Acosta’s conduct in the post-election press conference was outrageous. He rudely interrupted the president, refused to pass along […]

Even with evidence of ‘high crimes,’ impeaching Trump would probably fail because the GOP is as treasonous as Trump

  History shows it’s harder than it looks to remove a president from office.   The midterm elections have made it all but certain that some Democrats will introduce impeachment resolutions against President Trump after the new Congress begins in January. Speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) downplays talk of impeachment and seems unlikely to use any […]

Donald Trump Makes Absurd Claim That Illegal Voters Change Into Disguise In Their Car And That’s Why Republicans Lose

illegal voters, after having already cast their ballots, head to their cars and change outfits in order to vote again, according to President Donald Trump in an interview released Wednesday.

Mitch McConnell Just Blocked A Bipartisan Bill To Protect Robert Mueller

  WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Jeff Flake says he will block all of President Trump’s judicial nominees until his bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller goes to a vote.   Flake’s move comes after Trump forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and appointed Matt Whitaker, a Trump loyalist who has repeatedly criticized Mueller’s […]

McConnell Received $3.5M In Campaign Donations From Russian Oligarch-Linked Firm

      Len Blavatnik donated $3.5 million to Mitch McConnell’s PAC from 2015 to 2017.   Ukrainian-born billionaire Len Blavatnik, who holds dual U.S.-U.K. citizenship, used to be a fairly run-of-the-mill campaign contributor, donating relatively modest amounts in a bipartisan fashion — and then the 2016 election cycle hit.   Beginning in 2015, Blavatnik […]

Trump has reportedly ‘retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment’ after mounting midterm losses, France

  In one week, President Trump has transformed from a nonstop campaign-rally machine to a nearly invisible figure communicating mostly by tweet. Trump returned late Sunday from a 43-hour trip to Paris, where he sat out some big events and clashed with allies, and on Monday he ended his public day at 10:03 a.m., skipping […]

Quote on Drumpf’s Europe visit: “He’s just a bull carrying his own china shop with him wherever he travels the world” — Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley

  As he jetted to Paris last Friday, President Donald Trump received a congratulatory phone call aboard Air Force One. British Prime Minister Theresa May was calling to celebrate the Republican Party’s wins in the midterm elections – never mind that Democrats seized control of the House – but her appeal to the American President’s […]

What’s Happening in Florida Is a Nightmare. 2020 Could Be So Much Worse: Trump ignore voting when he doesn’t win

  With Florida set this week to undertake a massive and massively politicized recount in the critical races for governor and senator, the way that election fight has played out so far has been an absolute nightmare. Perhaps most terrifyingly of all, the 2018 Florida elections have demonstrated the real possibility that President Donald Trump […]

A black security guard caught a shooting suspect — only to be shot by police minutes later: The death of Jemel Roberson shows that black men aren’t allowed to be the good guy with a gun

Shortly after Roberson subdued the suspect at gunpoint, police arrived — and fatally shot the armed security guard as he pinned the suspect to the ground.   Roberson was […]
