Sean Adl-Tabatabai – Senator Ted Cruz has mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her recent claim that President Trump will be “impeached forever,” saying that POTUS will be “acquitted forever of these bogus charges.”
Pelosi faced backlash for her braggadocious remarks about President Trump’s impeachment, gleefully boasting that he is “impeached forever” during an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night.

Thomas Gallatin – On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear cases that hold significant implications for the Electoral College and states’ rights. During the 2016 presidential election, four Electoral College electors, one from Colorado and three from Washington, cast votes for candidates who did not win their state’s popular vote. In Colorado, the elector cast a vote for John Kasich instead of Hillary Clinton, and in Washington, three electors cast their votes for Colin Powell rather than Clinton.
Both the states of Colorado and Washington are among approximately 30 states that require Electoral College electors to cast their votes in concurrence with their respective state’s popular vote. Continue reading “SCOTUS Case Could Derail Effort to Negate Electoral College”
Wayne Allen Root – I understand if you don’t like the style or personality of President Trump. I understand if you don’t like his tweets. I understand if you’re a liberal and you don’t agree with his conservative policies and “America First” agenda. I get all that.
But facts are facts. You have to admit when you’re wrong. The guy is winning for America, American workers, the US economy. He’s not just winning big. We’re all winning big. And it’s all happening while Democrats try to impeach him.
Sure, Trump’s impeachment trial is the big news. But you’re missing the big picture. There’s nothing to write about impeachment. It’s already failed. On the very day the articles of impeachment were handed to the Senate (last Thursday), Trump jumped to 51% approval rating at Rasmussen.
51%. Continue reading “All Democrats Have is Weapons of Mass Distraction”
Frank Holmes – The Democratic primary debate on Tuesday was a low-rated snooze-fest, but there was one moment the media couldn’t stop talking about: Elizabeth Warren’s charge that Senator Bernie Sanders told her a woman couldn’t be elected president.
But, as usual, there’s another story the media won’t touch: The reason Warren stooped to leaking this (obviously false) story in the first place.
The sexist smear was a Warren-CNN tag-team effort to put Bernie’s candidacy down for the count—and cover up the fact that Warren’s campaign is on the ropes.
Warren’s staffers pumped the story out to the media just before this week’s Democratic debate, the last one before the Iowa caucuses on February 3. Continue reading “The secret reason Elizabeth Warren attacked Bernie Sanders”
J.B. Shurk – James Carville says Trump is the greatest threat to America since the fall of communism. It is easy to laugh away such a declaration, but I think there is an invaluable truth expressed. Trump is as important in stature as the United States’ most formidable military and political opponent of the twentieth century.
Trumpism as an ideological force has the mass and acceleration of a Soviet Empire that threatened to conquer the world. Nobody speaks about the Bush Doctrine in such terms. Nobody confuses the Obama Doctrine or the Carter Doctrine as projecting that kind of power.
Yet here we are, just three years after the election, and somehow the belittled and mocked hotel owner from Queens has stumbled into creating a movement that matches in strength and potency what took Marx, Lenin, and Stalin over a century to perfect. Consider the fear that Carville and his ilk must harbor about what is to come.
What does he see that makes him tremble so? In a word, greatness.
