Of course it does. They are trying to take down a president of the US and very wealthy man by any means necessary. Nothing will stop them from using these same tactics on any other politician and few will have the resources President Trump has.

The symbol for the Republican Party should not be an elephant, it should be an ostrich with its head in the sand.

Seeing courage in a Republican politician is a rare occurrence . They get their office and their perks and watch as Democrats toss Sh---manure in their faces and they smile.

Ha! I don't think the rinos are smart enough to realize everything they're doing to Trump can be turned on them. Too obtuse, greedy, or both.

We recently highlighted the story of the journalist Catherine Herridge, who was fired by CBS News, after which the network seized her confidential files. Herridge had been working on stories that might be negative for Joe Biden and the administration, so people were naturally suspicious and outraged. Now, after public scrutiny and pressure from members of Congress, the network has returned the files. [Snip] SAG-AFTRA is pleased to confirm that earlier today a representative of our union monitored the return of several boxes containing Catherine Herridge’s reporting materials from her CBS News office in Washington D.C.

About 18 months ago, my colleague Fuzzy Slippers fisked The New York Times opinion piece for asserting there was a “time and place” for cannibalism. What new horrors do they have in store for us? Well, cannibalism, of course. What better way to feed the masses than to feed them the masses, presumably the “good” unwashed get to consume the “bad” ones.[Snip]Ethically, cannibalism poses fewer issues than you might imagine. If a body can be bequeathed with consent to medical science, why can’t it be left to feed the hungry? Our aversion has been explained in various ways.

Filming has secretly started on a new series of Downton Abbey. The period drama--the last episode of which was aired a little over eight years ago--is making a surprise comeback in a seventh series. Bosses hoped to be able to bring back some of the big name actors such as Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern and Joanne Froggatt who appeared in the previous six seasons and two movie spin-offs. While it is not known if all of them have signed up, chiefs are said to be 'thrilled' with their casting.

Today is the anniversary of the birth of America’s great or greatest president, Abraham Lincoln. As a politician and as president, Lincoln was a profound student of the Constitution and constitutional history. Perhaps most important, Lincoln was America’s indispensable teacher of the moral ground of political freedom at the exact moment when the country was on the threshold of abandoning what he called its “ancient faith” that all men are created equal.

Sheriff Jones says there is now an influx of drugs and weapons coming into America through the Canadian border because more manpower and resources have been moved to the southern borders in Texas and Arizona.

An Illinois state judge has kicked former President Donald Trump off the Illinois' Republican presidential primary ballot due to his alleged role in the January 6 Capitol riots. Cook County Circuit Judge Tracie Porter ruled in favor of Illinois voters who argued Trump should be disqualified from the state's mid-March primary ballot, as well as the November 5 general election ballot. Voters brought their case over Trump's behavior on January 6, 2021, when he allegedly violated the anti-insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment.

Washington — President Joe Biden is fit for duty, his doctor reported Wednesday following the president’s annual physical, in what is expected to be the last update on Biden’s health before November’s election. Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a memo there are “no new concerns” with the president’s health revealed by this year’s physical. The White House said earlier Wednesday that no cognitive test was administered as O’Connor did not find it necessary. “The President feels well and this year’s physical identified no new concerns. He continues to be fit for duty and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations,” O’Connor wrote.

A tearful Mitch McConnell has announced he will be stepping down as the longest-serving Senate leader in history and admitted 'father time remains undefeated.' The Republican senator, who turned 82 last week, choked up on the Senate floor as he revealed he will leave the position he's served in for almost 18 years in November after a 'painful time' that included the death of his sister-in-law. McConnell has battled constant calls to step down in recent months over his support for sending more aid to Ukraine and is the last member of the Republican leadership not to have endorsed Donald Trump's 2024 presidential bid.

Jean-Pierre presided over a White House press briefing just hours after the president returned from his annual physical. She said that a cognitive test was not part of the annual checkup, despite concerns about Biden’s acuity.“If you look at what this president — he passes a cognitive test every day, every day, as he moves from one topic to another topic, understanding the granular level of these topics …

Jeopardy! has come under fire on social media over the inclusion of a clue regarding neopronouns during Monday's Tournament of Champions quarterfinal. During the episode, contestant Cris Pannullo selected a category called "Speech! Parts of Speech!" for $600. He was then presented with the words "Xem, Xyrs, Xemself," to which he correctly responded: "What are pronouns?" "Those are pronouns," host Ken Jennings responded. "Neopronouns." Xem/xyrs/xemself is a set of gender-neutral pronouns that has been adopted by some people, as well as organizations. That is in addition to some of the more commonly used pronouns, such as she/her, he/him, and they/them.

As Denver faces a budget crisis due to 40,000 illegal immigrants arriving in the last year, the city is warning hourly workers that they may be furloughed, while also considering hiring illegal immigrants to work for the city, The Daily Wire has learned. A spokeswoman for Denver mayor Mike Johnston told The Daily Wire that the budget crisis was caused by illegal immigrants being unable to work, causing them to be a drain on taxpayer dollars. The idea was to solve that by having them work directly for the city, she said. She said that a full-time salary funded by taxpayers was “not necessarily” more costly than social services.

An Illinois judge ruled Wednesday that former President Donald Trump should be taken off of the state's ballot for the primary election, citing the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The decision came from the Circuit Court of Cook County, and the judge put the order on pause in anticipation of an appeal. The ruling said that "based on engaging in insurrection on January 6, 2021...his name should be removed from the ballot." NBC News has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment. The Illinois GOP primary takes place March 19. The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments regarding a similar Colorado ruling that said Trump should be removed

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) defended Hunter Biden while he was behind closed doors testifying before the House impeachment inquiry on Wednesday. Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of Hunter highlights her change in political disposition from a once lefty populist turned establishment protectorate of the Bidens. “What we just witnessed over the last hour was, I think, a deep sea fishing expedition,” the Democrat congresswoman alleged. “The Republican case has completely fallen apart over the last several weeks.” Hunter is a material witness in the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, who denied involvement in the Biden business at least nine times.
