In 2016, seventeen candidates were vying for the Republican nomination for president. At the time, Donald Trump wasn’t given much of a chance in a field of heavy hitters like early front-runners Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.But with a dozen or more serious candidates in the race, it became clear almost immediately that unless most of those candidates dropped out to allow one or two candidates to challenge Donald Trump, the real estate tycoon would win enough convention delegates to breeze through to a victory.

Blah, blah, blah, go all the political pundits over a year before the election. Windbagging for bucks and attention. They know nothing and cannot predict the future. They all need to shut up and go back to imbibing Bud Light and shopping at Target.

Uniparty is very, very frightened of DJT. It makes them just freak out and get all hysterical. This proves to me that I MUST vote for Trump.

Excuse me, but who is the "Democrat member" who was the victim of a "partisan attack." Closest thing I saw was a couple of Dem back benchers getting grief from their Democrat friends.

One of the luckiest things in my life has been my good fortune to meet and become friendly or even real friends with some of the most interesting people in politics. Growing up in Detroit, I never would have guessed I’d get to know Tucker Carlson, Christopher Hitchens, David Limbaugh, etc. – so many people, I could write a column just name-dropping. It’s weird to me still, having politically grown up watching these people on television and learning from them.

St. Louis is the latest Democrat-run city to offer massive payouts to leftist protesters and rioters who caused havoc in their communities and are now winning big payouts from local courts. This time the money goes to radical leftists arrested following the acquittal of a police officer who fatally shot heroin dealer Anthony Lamar Smith. Anthony Lamar Smith, a 24-year-old African American resident of St. Louis, Missouri, lost his life in December 2011 after being pursued in a car chase and subsequently shot by Jason Stockley, who was serving as a St. Louis Police officer at that time.

It meant that Rapinoe, 38, has played her last World Cup game for the USA.

Joy Reid just can’t help herself when it comes to inserting race into absolutely everything and the upcoming trial of former President Donald J. Trump in a Wahington, D.C. courtroom presided over by a hostile Obama-appointed judge is no exception. During MSNBC’s coverage of Trump’s traveling to the nation’s capital for his arraignment on Thursday, the “race lady” took great pleasure in pointing out that both of the judges who the former president faced would be women of color, seeming to suggest that their ethnicity could have an effect on how the trial will play out.

One of the veteran attorneys advising special counsel Jack Smith in his prosecution of former President Donald Trump has donated thousands of dollars to Democrat politicians, including President Joe Biden. David Rody left his role as a partner at the Sidley Austin law firm in 2022 to join the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a senior counsel in the criminal division. Now, he is helping advise Smith, who has indicted Trump twice for his alleged efforts to challenge the 2020 election and his handling of White House documents. Interestingly, Rody is a Democrat donor who donated $5,600 to Biden in 2020 and nearly $7,000 to other Democrat causes from 2018 to 2022.

After three indictments and a slew of spurious criminal charges brought against Donald Trump, the former president may have a genuinely ingenious move up his sleeve in his never-ending battle with the American political machine. The move is a simple one: Try me if you must, but let the whole world watch. This tactical zigzag has been lost in the noise of the third indictment, but it was proposed last month by Trump attorney John Lauro during an interview on the Fox News program “America Reports.” You can watch the segment below:

Donald Trump's legal team responded to a protective order from Special Counsel Jack Smith regarding a social media post from the former president. The filing came after Trump posted on Truth Social on Friday stating, in capital letters, "If you go after me, I’m coming after you!" Prosecutors say that a "substantial" amount of evidence is about to be handed over to Trump's legal team, "much of which includes sensitive and confidential information. The protective order would limit what Trump as well as his legal team can publicly share about the case.

Former President Donald Trump’s assertions during the 2020 presidential campaign about the Biden family’s foreign business dealings have proven to be accurate. Trump routinely criticized then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden about his son’s dealings with Ukrainian, Russian and Chinese associates when he was on the campaign trail, most notably at the presidential debates leading up to the November 2020 election. Watch: (Video) “China ate your lunch, Joe. And no wonder your son goes in and, wha—, he takes out billions of dollars. He takes out billions of dollars to manage. He makes millions of dollars.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the most disliked Republican candidate in the GOP primary field, this week’s Morning Consult survey found. As is consistent with past weekly surveys, Trump continues to stand as the candidate with the highest favorability among Republicans, with 71 percent viewing him favorably. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis comes in second place with 63 percent reporting a favorable view of the presidential hopeful. Both Trump and DeSantis, however, see roughly a quarter of respondents reporting an unfavorable view of them — 26 percent and 23 percent, respectively. Half view former Vice President Mike Pence favorably, but he has the second highest unfavorable rating among all candidates listed,

Friday, during an interview on FBN’s “Kudlow,” Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz once again criticized the four-count indictment against former President Donald Trump regarding the 2021 Capitol Hill riot. According to Dershowitz, the indictment approached “banana republic land,” and he accused the Biden administration of being “afraid of the democratic process.” “We know that President Biden urged his attorney general to indict the man who he knew was going to be the leading opponent if against him,” Dershowitz said. “That begins to look like banana republic land. That’s what happens when people in power are afraid of the democratic process.

According to a FOX News poll in December 2021, 78% of Republicans believed the 2020 election was stolen. At least 70% of Republican voters still believe Joe Biden’s win was illegitimate, according to a recent poll this week by far-left CNN. In January 2022, only 17% of Republicans and right-leaning independent voters said they would vote for a candidate that believes Joe Biden won the 2020 election. On Friday, Governor Ron DeSantis said that the theories by President Trump about the 2020 election being stolen were “unsubstantiated.”

More than two dozen House Democrats put forward legislation Friday that would slap "assault weapons" and high-capacity magazines with a 1,000% excise tax, a change that would raise the price of a $500 weapon to $5,000 in a bid to reduce access to guns across the country. Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., and 24 other House Democrats introduced the legislation Friday. It’s the second time Democrats have put forward the idea. Beyer and 37 Democrats proposed the same idea last year when Democrats controlled the House, but it never moved. The text of Beyer’s new bill was not out as of

NBC is reporting — with a supposed sense of shock — the results of a Monmouth poll that nearly one-third of Americans think the 2020 presidential election was rigged. And they further reiterate that there is no evidence for fraud. There's no evidence widespread fraud affected the outcome of the 2020 election, but Trump and allies have spent years undercutting the election's legitimacy. Wow! It must be so. The main stream media assure us that the election was honest. Yet one third of Americans still believe the election was a fraud. I am shocked, shocked. Anyone who questions the election result is called a fascist or subjected to a lawsuit or prosecution.

Curiously, the Dutch coast guard had initially reported that only 25 of the vehicles were battery-electric models. At last report, the Dutch coast guard admitted that it has been unable to put out the fire and that the ship has taken on water and is “listing” and on a trajectory toward a capsize.
