President Joe Biden continues to resist calls from Democrats to quit his flagging reelection bid, and continues to accede to prayers from Republicans not to. Instead, he has set some pre-conditions on quitting that he figures will never be fulfilled. “If the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get out of the race,’ I’d get out of the race,” he said last week. At his rare press conference a few days later, he said he’d quit if the polls said, “There’s no way [he] could win.” He followed that up with “No poll says that” in that creepy, corny stage whisper he has affected.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid was credited with “gaslighting at its finest” as she spun up a “universal kind of reaction” regarding the coverage of former President Donald Trump’s post-assassination attempt. (Snip) “And people are concerned and expressing concern that we won’t be the guardians of memory. And that we will allow Donald Trump as he is, you know, bathed in the glory and grandeur of his party, to rewrite himself as both a hero and a victim,” she said at one point during the coverage. The take prompted former cop and commentator Brandon Tatum to state, “Gaslighting at its finest. This

On Jan. 20, 2021, President Biden, in his Inauguration Day address, pledged his “whole soul is this: Bringing America together. Uniting our people. And uniting our nation.” In the wake of the assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump on Saturday, our nation has never been less cohesive or more divided and bitter. Much of that fracture is solely because of Mr. Biden and his unrelenting attacks on Mr. Trump and his MAGA supporters — a whopping 74 million Americans to judge by the 2020 election returns. “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” Mr. Biden said

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough did not react kindly to the network removing his show from the air Monday following the assassination attempt against former president Donald Trump. Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski, his wife, addressed the situation Tuesday and accused MSNBC of lying to them about replacing the show with breaking news coverage of the fallout from the Trump assassination attempt. If MSNBC does that again, Scarborough said, he will leave the show and they can find a new host. “We were told, in no uncertain terms on Sunday evening that there was going to be one news feed across all NBC news channels yesterday,” Scarborough said. “That did not happen.”

The Labour Party government in Britain will continue with the prohibition on healthcare providers prescribing puberty-blocking drugs to children, Health Secretary Wes Streeting has said. Streeting, like Prime Minister Keir Starmer, initially appeared to struggle with comprehending basic biology, infamously declaring that “trans women are women”. However, the new Health Secretary seemingly evolved on the issue of gender and said in 2022 that “men have penises, women have vaginas”… to the consternation of his woke base. Now, having been installed in his cabinet post earlier this month, the openly gay Labour politician is continuing to reject the far-left excesses of gender ideologues
Biden's New Inflation Plan: How About

Enough about Joe Biden's mindless nastiness. I'll take my cue from Donald Trump and Biden himself and focus on policy this morning. Specifically, let's talk about Joe Biden's mindless and nasty demagoguery on economic policies. Faced with the electoral consequences of his corrosive inflationary wave, especially in shelter costs, Biden has to come up with some promised policy solution. And that is ... federal rent control: President Joe Biden is ready to propose a 5% cap on annual rent increases for tenants of major landlords as he tries to show he’s doing something about the high cost of housing, according to a person familiar with the plan.

Undeterred by even the sting of a would-be assassin’s bullet, Donald Trump charged strongly onward into Wisconsin for the Republican National Convention. This demonstration of determination and life force provides a stark contrast to the dithering and often incoherent meanderings of his opponent, Joe Biden. Trump further accentuated that show of vitality by selecting a running mate who is sure to help him win, serve as an invaluable second-in-command for the next four years, and then carry the banner of America first into the future after Trump completes his second term. As someone who has spent many hours with J.D. Vance and campaigned for him vigorously in his successful underdog Senate win,

For one bright, shining moment Joe Biden made the case for toning down the rhetoric, turning down the political temperature, and unifying the country. Of course, he didn't mean it, but at least you would have thought that he would recognize that getting nasty two days after an assassin shot Donald Trump, leaving one dead spectator and others grievously wounded. But no, this is Joe Biden. He is, at base, a nasty person who cannot NOT tell a lie and smear his opponents. It is his nature, and the only thing holding him back now is his mental incapacity.

The parents of the 20-year-old who unleashed a barrage of gunfire toward former President Trump are licensed professional counselors through the Pennsylvania social work board. Mary Elizabeth Crooks and Matthew Brian Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, are licensed as professional counselors, according to the Pennsylvania Department of State Licensing System Verification service. The 20-year-old attempted assassin's parents both have active licenses, the service said. Both Mary and Matthew's licenses expire in February 2025, and they have been professional counselors since 2002, the records showed.

A local police counter-sniper team was stationed inside the building that Thomas Crooks crawled on top of to fire at and nearly kill former President Donald Trump, according to a shocking report. The building was a “watch post” for local police snipers to scan for threats, law enforcement sources told the New York Post. Sources told the Post that the local police sniper team was inside the building, but not on the roof — where Crooks climbed and waited for Trump to begin speaking before firing off eight shots, hitting Trump in the ear, killing a rally-goer, and wounding two others

Former President Donald Trump’s selection of Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance might surprise you, but it shouldn’t. The 39-year-old first-term senator is a solid, smart pick who will not only bring youth, energy and vigor to the ticket, but also a wealth of hard life experience, highly unusual for someone so young. Trump’s announcement gave the bare bones of why he selected Vance over the many others who vied to be his running mate: After lengthy deliberation and thought, and considering the tremendous talents of many others, I have decided that the person best suited to assume the position of Vice

There are consequences to virtually every mainstream media, office-holding Democrat and left-wing academic labeling former President Donald Trump a Nazi, a fascist, a white supremacist and a mortal threat to American democracy. One consequence is that more than a few people will want Trump dead -- killed, if necessary; who would not want such an individual dead? Here is a small number of incendiary comments: -- The cover story in The New Republic, June 2024, is "American Fascism" -- featuring Trump drawn as Adolf Hitler: "Today, we at The New Republic think we can spend this election year in one of two ways.

This is a scary moment in America, and we need a leader who won’t exploit the chaos. Someone who can strike just the right tone – with humanity, and moral clarity – that trickles down to other leaders in both parties, reminding us of our values, our better selves. Joe Biden rose to the occasion. He expressed sincere empathy for Donald Trump and other victims of Saturday’s horrific attack, including a father killed while protecting his family from bullets. He called on all Americans to “lower the temperature in our politics,” and to reject violence in any form. He did his part, dialed it down, .

When I led raids as a Marine Corps officer in Iraq and Afghanistan, I used to move around the objective with my hands in my pockets. I did this to show the Marines that I wasn’t afraid—even if I was. Acting calm in a firefight wasn’t always easy, but it’s what a combat leader does. Whatever you think of Trump, he proved himself to be a combat leader on Saturday. A bullet came an inch from blowing his brains out. He took cover. And when he stood, with blood splattered across the side of his face,

Democrats and left-wing media have lied to the American people about former President Donald Trump, model and actress Amber Rose proclaimed during her speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday night. Rose — known as a “Slutwalk” feminist activist (which she has since distanced herself from in a TMZ interview), pro-abortion advocate, and self-avowed atheist, who has had romantic relationships with various rap artists — shocked Hollywood and her followers when she endorsed Trump in May. Rose was subsequently tapped to speak at the RNC in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to provide her unique perspective in a shifting political landscape where many feel abandoned by the Democrat Party.

Like Robert Redford’s character in “The Candidate” — who unexpectedly won a U.S. Senate race and then bewilderedly asked “What do we do now?” — the Democrats, the media, the Hollywood-celebrity industrial complex, and the leftist-dominated professoriate are in a similar position. They have to wonder what to do next after their wish that someone would take out Donald Trump was attempted and failed. In the hours after Trump was shot in a botched, but only by millimeters, assassination bid, the media scolds began to insist that we must “take down the temperature.”
