Nunes: 'Ridiculous' Mueller indictment ignores Russian efforts to hack GOP

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) slammed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russians accused of hacking activities during the 2016 presidential election because it only focuses on efforts to disrupt operations of Democratic Party campaign apparatuses.

Ben Jealous has a tough time on MSNBC

Dem candidate for Maryland Governor Ben Jealous is too extreme for MSNBC

Democrats in Maryland just nominated a political novice who endorsed Bernie Sanders and championed the Black Lives Matter movement to run against Larry Hogan, the most popular governor in America.

Crowds don't chant 'MSNBC Sucks' and that tells you how Americans view journalism

Despite what many denizens of the greenrooms of cable news outlets and editorial staff meetings at the New York Times and Washington Post might believe, the American people aren't stupid. And the proof is in the amusing "CNN Sucks" chant that accompanies President Trump at his rallies across the nation. Published June 27, 2018

It's Bernie's party now

After Tuesday's stunning primary results is now safe to say that the Democratic Party is the party of Bernie Sanders. In fact, Democrat voters and the Democratic Party's leadership has gone so far from the vision and ideals of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, the founders of the Democratic Republicans which became today's Democratic Party, that they really should now change their name to the Democratic Socialist Party.

Colbert joins mob attacking Sarah Sanders

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was rudely thrown out of a public restaurant this weekend garnering sympathy and support from most Americans with any sense of decency and class.

Flashback: Obama Administration placed border children with human smugglers

With all the histrionics from the media and the Democrats over the plight of children illegally crossing the US border, you'd think you would have heard something from them almost two years ago when the Obama Administration was discovered to have facilitated horrible abuses against these same children.

RNC refuses to commit to supporting Virginia senate candidate Corey Stewart

Coorey Stewart won the Republican nomination for United States Senate in Virginia last week and will be squaring off against Hillary Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine in November. Giving Kaine a run for his money or even defeating the Democrat could be a huge moral and symbolic victory for the party and the Trump Administration. But, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel has not yet committed to giving financial support to Stewart's candidacy. Published June 19, 2018

NY Times issues major correction in hit piece targeting EPA Pruitt's daughter

The long knives (and brass knuckles) are clearly out for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. We wrote weeks ago about the organized Left's attacks on President Trump's most effective and influential cabinet secretary. His efforts in rolling back job-killing regulations have been a prime force in driving the Trump economy and the media and Democrats can't stand it. Published June 18, 2018
