    I was warned ages ago that violence is not a solution to any problem, and that if I wanted Carrot Top to stop doing prop comedy I should just bide my time. Did it work? I’m scared to look. Can someone at least let me know if Jeff Dunham is still at large? But Republicans these days seem to have missed the memo. In their bath salts hallucination of a universe, political violence is tres chic. The party’s modern luminaries include rampaging death-gnome Kyle Rittenhouse, scaredy-’ristocrats Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Jan. 6 rioter and tragic Donald Trump victim Ashli Babbitt, and Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte, who earned piggish praise from Trump in 2017 after body-slamming a reporter. (How conservatives’ Tinker-Toy minds manage to shart out encomiums to Rittenhouse while seizing on the absurdity that the Capitol officer who shot Babbitt is somehow a murderer is a mystery for the ages.) And now? Violently attempting to overthrow the U.S. government on behalf of clammy fascist Donald Trump is apparently a feather in your cap if you’re running for office in Texas. A North Texas man...
    Donald Trump was one of many famous passengers who flew on Jeffrey Epstein's private jet, a pilot testified on Tuesday. During Ghislaine Maxwell's sex trafficking trial, pilot Larry Visoski testified that he remembered Trump flying with Epstein before becoming president. "I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him," Visoski said. Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker were also named by the pilot. Epstein's jet was informally known as the "Lolita Express" because it was also allegedly used to transport underage girls. "Donald Trump, before he was president, also" flew on Epstein's private planes, the pilot testified.\n\n"I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him."\n\nAnd actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker? \n\n"I remember them as well." — Molly Crane-Newman (@Molly Crane-Newman) 1638292522 From Your Site Articles
    DONALD Trump has accused Meghan Markle of “disrespecting the Queen” and “horribly” manipulating Prince Harry. The former President’s criticism came in a new interview with Nigel Farage, in which he alleges the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have “hurt” the Royal family. 2Donald Trump was speaking to Nigel Farage Trump has in the past been critical of Meghan and earlier this year said he would consider running for President again amid rumours she was planning a bid for the White House. During the interview, Trump also spoke of his admiration for the Queen, which he says stems from his Scottish mother, and how that’s clouded his view of Meghan. He once again took aim at the Duchess, telling the former UKIP leader: “I think she’s been very disrespectful to the Queen, who’s such a great woman, such a great person, a historic person. “I think she’s very disrespectful to the Royal Family and most importantly to the Queen. “I think Harry’s been used and been used terribly. I think it’s ruined his relationship with his family, and it hurts the...
    Various media outlets are reporting that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is cooperating with the House Select Committee on January 6, and they are touting the threat of jail time as one of the reasons for that willingness to cooperate. However, Meadows said that cooperation had been long in the works, even despite threatening comments from Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) touting a forthcoming January 6 committee decision on possible contempt charges for Meadows. During an interview with Mobile, AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Meadows said Schiff’s remarks did not change anything and that he believed the Democrat-led January 6 Committee would be disappointed when they find former President Donald Trump and the West Wing did not have “advance knowledge” on the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot. “It doesn’t change anything,” he said. “We’ve been working on an accommodation, Jeff, for a long time. What I told them is if I can share with the committee non-privileged information that doesn’t waive the executive privilege that Donald Trump has put forth — it is not my privilege to waive,...

    Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime pilot took the stand in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial and claimed he never saw underage girls on Epstein’s private planes. But he revealed that former President Donald Trump was among the famous passengers who flew with the pedophile multimillionaire, who also jetted around the world with Britain’s Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, and former astronaut and Sen. John Glenn. Larry Visoski, who ferried Epstein to his homes around the globe, testified on Tuesday that he never knew passengers’ ages but at the time believed some of Epstein's underage victims were adults. Those accusers include Jane Doe, who was 14 when Epstein and Maxwell allegedly recruited her into the financier's teen sex ring after meeting her at Interlochen arts camp in Michigan. “I didn’t notice anybody of a younger nature without an adult or parent,” he testified. “I didn’t know anybody’s exact age at all.” When assistant U.S. prosecutor Maureen Comey asked about Jane Doe, Visoski replied that she was “a mature woman with piercing powder-blue eyes.” Visoski said he recalled picking up luggage from Interlochen Arts Academy...

Meadows, along with former trump strategist Steve Bannon, had refused to cooperate raising the prospect of criminal contempt proceedings. But that changed with the announcement that he had reached a deal.  'Mr Meadows has been engaging with the select committee through his attorney,' said its chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson.

    'Girl hound' Donald Trump and his 'wingman' Jeffrey Epstein would run wild together at beauty pageants, according to a woman who has accused Trump of sexual abuse. Celebrity make-up artist and former pageant organizer, Jill Harth, claims that Trump attempted to rape and sexually harass her over a five-year period, according to a lawsuit she filed in 1997, which was later dropped. Now speaking for the first time about Epstein and Trump's close friendship, she tells DailyMail.com that they were the 'big cojones' in a group of rich and powerful men who became disturbing fixtures on the pageant scene.  'They were both seducing women with their money. Trump really came off like he was hot stuff. They had no trouble,' she says.  'It was a game to them to catch the girl and see who they were going to hook up with.

    The Monday night edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! saw the late-night host take aim at Republicans’ bizarre conspiracy-mongering over the Omicron variant, a new COVID variant that, according to the World Health Organization, “has several mutations that may have an impact on how it behaves, for example, on how easily it spreads or the severity of illness it causes,” though epidemiological studies are “still underway” to determine how dangerous of a threat it will pose. Out of caution, the U.S. has implemented travel restrictions against eight countries where Omicron has spread most rapidly: Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. “But of course, the right-wingnuts have a theory on this,” cracked Kimmel. “Their theory is that this variant is some kind of ploy concocted by the Democrats to help them win elections. In fact, former White House doctor and current congressman from Texas, Ronny Jackson, tweeted on Saturday: ‘Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant! They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election –...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Jussie Smollett staged a racist and homophobic assault and told police he was the victim after the television studio where he worked didn’t take hate mail he had received seriously, a prosecutor said during opening statements in the ex-“Empire” actor’s trial Monday. Smollett has maintained he was attacked in downtown Chicago in January 2019 by supporters of then-President Donald Trump, a report that ignited political and ideological divisions around the country. But special prosecutor Dan Webb said the actor recruited two brothers to help him carry out the fake attack, then reported it to Chicago police, who classified it as a hate crime and spent 3,000 staff hours on the investigation. “When he reported the fake hate crime that was a real crime,” said Webb, who was named as special prosecutor after Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office dropped the original charges filed against Smollett. A new indictment was returned in 2020. Cook County State’s attorney Kim Foxx speaks with reporters and details the charges against R. Kelly’s first court appearance at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse...
    Why does it seem like the mainstream media isn’t taking the very real danger of America losing its democracy seriously? When Germany invaded France in 1940, did newspapers fret over what those rich pastries were going to do to Himmler’s triglyceride levels? Because that’s kind of what this moment feels like. Hey, MSM—Donald Trump will try to steal the 2024 election if he glimpses a path and hasn’t yet choked to death on a 47-egg Denver omelet with no veggies and extra gummy worms. Focus, motherfuckers! Needless to say, this shit is appalling. NBC News and Meet the Press, which can’t seem to shake their both-sides bullshit even though one side is currently laser-focused on euthanizing America, took a story that should alarm every citizen of every liberal democracy in the world and slapped a banal headline on it that seems specially designed to tickle the tender Teutonic testes of every white Christian supremacist MAGA mite in the country.  Check this out: xLaser-focused on 2020, Trump seeks a Michigan Legislature that could help him in 2024https://t.co/6F9SY1CpvU pic.twitter.com/wV5g4RpPGC— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) November 27,...
    (CNN)Mitch McConnell would like everyone in the Republican Party to forget all about Donald Trump -- and the last four years."I do think we need to be thinking about the future and not the past," McConnell told CNN's Manu Raju last month when asked about candidates embracing Trump. "I think the American people are focusing on this administration, what it's doing to the country, and it's my hope the '22 election will be a referendum on the performance of the current administration, not a rehash of suggestions about what may have happened in 2020."You'll notice that McConnell didn't say the words "Donald Trump" at all in that quote. In fact, the Senate minority leader appears to be doing his damndest to not ever utter the name of the former President publicly these days.The problem with that strategy?

    onaldonaldjtrumpjr / NBA (DR) Like his father, Donald Trump Jr. did not carry LeBron James in his heart. He showed it again recently, by severely insulting the king … If his father did not welcome any NBA team that won the title at the White House during his tenure, it did not prevent him from following the league news. It seems that Donald Trump Jr. is doing the same. The eldest son of the 45th President of the United States actually has an eye on the big topics of interest to Orange Ball fans. Khairy Irving scattered on the backrest. But like his father, most of his speeches about the NBA have to do with LeBron James. The 43-year-old businessman, who is a fierce opponent of the king, used to talk about the king on social media. Already withdrawn for its content towards it. However, this Sunday, he put the card back on, this time describing the Lakers star in a disgusting way! Read more Another close ally of Donald Trump is the...
    Although Barack and Michelle Obama were obviously disappointed with the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, they did everything they could to help Donald Trump prepare for his presidency during that lame duck period — and that included matters pertaining to intelligence and national security. But it wasn’t easy. According to a new report from the CIA’s Center for the Study of Intelligence, the intel community “struggled” to brief Trump during the late 2016/ early 2017 transition from the Obama Administration to the Trump Administration. CNN’s Katie Bo Lillis reports, “Although Trump spent substantial time with briefers on a routine basis throughout the transition period, his free-wheeling style and deep mistrust of the intelligence community presented them with ‘greater challenges’ even than President-elect Richard Nixon, who blamed the CIA for his election loss in 1960 and cut the agency out as president, the history found. The 40-page narrative — a regular update to a CIA book on briefing presidents-elect written by a retired intelligence officer — offers only a few new details but confirms widely reported press accounts of the...

    The Trump International Hotel, located in a 19th-century neo-Romanesque building, closes its doors. Built in the 1890s, the 12-story building, the former post office, is the third tallest in the US capital. The demolition was condemned several times, and the building was saved short in 2011 when Donald Trump promised to invest $ 200 million in its renovation. The hotel opened in the fall of 2016, just months before Donald Trump entered the White House. The night before at Franklin’s Suite, a large skylight glows on the bar you sip the $ 140 worth of wine glasses served in Hungary Crystal, including $ 12,000 for breakfast. “This is a place he can be very proud of,” Donald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer told his first White House press conference in January 2017. “I think he’s representative of that genre.

    Donald Trump's disgraced ex-fixer says he's convinced the former president won't run for the White House again - and that he's only teasing a second stint in office to keep donor cash flowing in.    Cohen, speaking to Meet the Press on Sunday, said that Trump will not run and merely hold on for as long as possible to collect money from donors and 'keep the grift going.' The former lawyer turned Trump critic - who spent prison time for tax evasion and campaign finance violations - said that Trump is running the greatest grift in American history.     'Donald Trump has made it very clear, right, that he is grifting off of the American people, these supporters, these individuals that are just sending money to him at record levels,' Cohen told host Chuck Todd. 'It's really amazing that people don't see exactly what the guy is doing,' he added. In August, Trump was revealed to have raised more than $100 million from donors since leaving office, with that war chest likely to have swollen substantially since then.  President Trump's former lawyer Michael...
    Former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the investigations into the Trump Organization by both the Manhattan DA’s office and New York Attorney General Letitia James already had enough evidence of crimes to indict the former president. When asked what stage the investigation is in, Cohen said, “I really try not to talk about it because it’s their investigation, nor do I want to tip off Trump or the Trump Organization’s people about what is actually happening. So I would rather just not answer that specific question, other than to say that you can bet your bottom dollar that Allen Weisselberg is not — and I truly mean this, Allen Weisselberg is not the key to this. They are going after Donald. They’re going after Don Jr, Eric, Ivanka, a whole slew of individuals, family as well.” He continued, “You know when you talked about whether or not Donald Trump inflated or deflated his assets, every single word that I had said about that is 100% accurate.” He added, “I’m not asking anybody to...

    Donald Trump Jr. slammed President Joe Biden on Saturday for failing to meet his campaign promise of eradicating cancer in his first 10 months in office. In an interview with FOX News' Don Bongino, Trump said of the president: 'He was also going to cure cancer, if I remember correctly. 'Everyone said, "'Oh that's great, we should definitely elect him," Trump recounted of Biden's 2019 campaign pledge. 'I haven't seen much movement on that.' Biden had promised on the campaign trail in 2019 he would eradicate cancer if he were elected president. 'A lot of you understand what loss is, and when loss occurs, you know that people come up to you and tell you "I understand," if you lose a husband,, a wife, a son, a daughter, a family member,' he said at a campaign stop in Iowa. 'That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that — I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America: We’re going to cure cancer.'

              more   U.S. Representative Jody Hice (R-GA-10) has released a new television ad — featuring former President Donald Trump — in his campaign to replace Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In the ad, Trump endorsed Hice. Trump said Hice will “fight for free, fair, and secure elections in Georgia.” The former president also called Raffensperger one of the worst secretaries of state in America. Hice said in the ad that Georgians must have confidence that voters cast only one legal ballot and that one legal ballot gets counted. Hice elaborated in a new email to supporters. “No one quite understands the disaster that can be caused by a lack of election integrity like Georgians. Brad Raffensperger has failed our state, and we desperately need to elect a leader that will step up and restore confidence,” Hice wrote. “That’s why I am honored to receive the full endorsement of President Donald Trump. President Trump trusts that I will lead with integrity and make every effort in my power to ensure that Georgia has free, fair, and secure elections.” Hice announced in...
    President Joe Biden’s decision to impose additional air travel restrictions on South Africa and seven other countries in response to a new COVID-19 strain is being contrasted with his response to similar policies under former President Donald Trump. Biden issued a proclamation Friday night saying Washington would “suspend and restrict the entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of noncitizens” from the eight African nations effective Monday, though he mentioned the decision in a previous statement hours earlier in the day after Thanksgiving. “As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries,” Biden said in the statement sent by the White House. “These new restrictions will take effect on November 29. As we move forward, we will continue to be guided by what the science and my medical team advises.” WHY BIDEN CAN’T GET RID OF HARRIS Biden was among the Democratic leaders who responded with criticism to Trump’s restrictions on travel from China, where the virus originated.

    Because Donald Trump is a gooey, hulking, Brobdingnagian wad of loser, his handpicked replacement for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Pat Toomey has already settled in for his political dirt nap. Sean Parnell, the MAGA-anointed heir apparent to the seat, suspended his campaign on Monday after a judge awarded custody of his children to his estranged wife, following disturbing allegations of domestic abuse. For some reason, Parnell didn’t pull a white man’s mulligan and simply bawl in front of the camera—which is really weird, considering the tactic has been proven effective in securing both Supreme Court confirmations and lifetime passes to kill protesters. Instead, Parnell just slinked away—as if shame was still a thing in today’s Republican Party. Now that there’s a vacant seat in the GOP primary clown car, at least one more red-nosed harlequin is thinking of climbing in.  CNN: According to multiple Republican operatives in and outside of the Keystone State, the slate of GOP candidates could expand in coming weeks to include hedge fund executive David McCormick and daytime TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz. And then there’s this,...
    Following his acquittal on homicide and attempted homicide charges, teenage vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse insisted he has no desire to become more involved in politics. But in an article published by Vanity Fair on November 24, journalist Eric Lutz stresses that for someone who wants to keep his political involvement to a bare minimum, the 18-year-old Rittenhouse certainly isn’t shy about talking to prominent MAGA Republicans — including former President Donald Trump and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Rittenhouse has received nonstop praise from the MAGA far right for his actions in August 2020, when the Illinois resident traveled to a racial justice protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin armed with an AR-15-style weapon. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot three pro-Black Lives Matter protesters (two of them fatally). During his trial, Rittenhouse maintained that he acted in self-defense — and the jury returned a “not guilty” verdict on all charges. Interviewed by television journalist Ashleigh Banfield for NewsNation on November 24, Rittenhouse insisted that he does not “want to get involved in politics at all” and...
    SPECULATIONS have begun as to whether former President Donald Trump will hit the campaign trail in 2024. Here's what we know about Trump's potential return to The White House. 2Donald Trump can still run for president in 2024 unless Senators pass a measure banning him from holding public officeCredit: AFP How did Donald Trump hint at a return to The White House? After the news broke that Facebook banned Trump from the platform for at least two years, he released a statement implying his return to the presidency. He said: “Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!”  On June 4, Facebook officially disclosed their decision to ban the former president from the social media platform for two years, extending his suspension following the insurrection on January 6. Facebook said: “At the end of this period, if we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of...
    SOME people have determined that country star Luke Combs is a Trump supporter, but that is not necessarily the case. Many believe he does not support the president’s agenda due to him being vocal about the Black Lives Matter movement. 2Country singer Luke Combs has yet to reveal his political affiliationsCredit: Getty Images - Getty Is Luke Combs a supporter of Trump?

    Getty Former President Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds on October 9, 2021. Former President Donald Trump put out a Thanksgiving message through his spokesperson on Twitter, which some of his followers believe hints at a 2024 Presidential run. Trump, who was voted out of office and replaced by President Joe Biden during a tumultuous time involving an attempted siege of the U.S. Capitol, posted the letter through spokeswomen Liz Harrington, because he remains banned on Twitter. It said: A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!

The gift had been presented to Trump following his speech at the site on July 3, 2020, as part of the state's Fourth of July celebrations.

After Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in the death of two BLM protestors in 2020, Trump invited him to Mar-A-Lago. "He called. He wanted to know if he could come over, say hello because he was a fan," Trump said during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity. During the interview, Fox showed a picture of Rittenhouse posing with Trump. "He came over with his mother. Really a nice young man. ... That was prosecutorial misconduct. He should have not have had to suffer through a trial for that. He was going to be dead," the former President said. Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges after being accused of murdering two people and injuring another during protests in Kenosha. The...
    Donald Trump, The 45th president of the United States, opened a bar called 45 Wine & Whiskey, featuring a cocktail called the “Forty-Five,” which costs $45. Are you sensing a theme here? It’s all about the number 45 for Former U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump recently opened a bar themed after himself, 45 Wine & Whiskey Bar, in Trump Tower in New York City. The name of the bar is a reference to Trump being the 45th president. The bar is offering a $45 cocktail called the “Forty-Five”), which is accompanied by Diet Coke, reportedly one of Trump’s favorite drinks, and a side of beef sliders. Despite the price tag, the drink sounds like a pretty basic Old-Fashioned, containing Wyoming Whiskey (not a top-shelf brand), Demerara and orange bitters. That’s a pretty outrageous price, but hey, maybe the sliders are really good. The most baffling part is the inclusion of a Diet Coke, which is just not a drink you’re wishing for while sipping on an Old-Fashioned-esque drink. But then, Trump, who claims he has never had a glass...

    Almost every week we learn "new" information about the Trump regime's attempted (and ongoing) coup and other crimes against democracy and the rule of law. These supposed revelations are now barely newsworthy. This new type of normal is the way democracy dies. Donald Trump's underlings, as it turns out, issued detailed instructions to Vice President Mike Pence on how to sabotage the counting of the Electoral College votes last Jan. 6, in order to send the results of the 2020 presidential election back to Republican-controlled state legislatures in "battleground" states. If that failed to change the outcome, the final decision — as specified in the Constitution — would have been made in the House of Representatives, where Trump would presumably have been "elected." It's impossible to know exactly how bad things would have gotten after such an outcome. The United States likely would have seen mass public unrest on a virtually unprecedented scale, perhaps offering Trump an excuse to invoke the Insurrection Act, order the military into the streets, and suspend the Constitution. In effect, that manufactured emergency would...
    FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Former President Donald Trump revealed Kyle Rittenhouse paid a visit to his home at Mar-a-Lago. During a taped interview with Fox News, the president said the teen, who was acquitted last week on charges of fatally shooting two people, called his office and asked if he could stop by. It’s believed he visited on Monday. Trump said Rittenhouse is a fan and wanted to say hello, he called him a nice young man. He went on to say there was prosecutorial misconduct during his trial and that Rittenhouse should not have “suffered” through a trial.
    Celebrity surgeon Mehmet Oz is poised to shake up the Pennsylvania Senate race, bolstered by a vast personal fortune to invest in a 2022 campaign and enviable poll numbers that suggest the Republican would be an immediate front-runner. Oz, 61, has not decided whether to pull the trigger on a bid for the seat being relinquished by retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. But if the television personality runs, he is prepared to back the effort with millions of his own money and would begin a campaign for the GOP nomination with stratospheric ratings among key demographics, a source close to Oz revealed in an interview with the Washington Examiner. In polling that tested Oz’s image with Pennsylvania voters, his favorable/unfavorable ratings registered 54%/12% with Fox News viewers, 49%/8% with black voters, and 56%/3% with conservative Democrats, an important constituency in the Keystone State. Oz’s name identification clocked in at 80%. Oz cultivated a following over several years, first as a medical adviser on The Oprah Winfrey Show and then, beginning a dozen years ago, on the nationally syndicated Dr. Oz...

    With the Democratic Party in a bit of a tizzy over whether Joe Biden will run again, there’s at least as much uncertainty about whether Donald Trump will be on the ballot. That’s kind of a surreal situation, not knowing whether the 2020 combatants will stage a rematch — especially against the backdrop of an election that the former president still insists was hijacked from him. Trump’s body language is designed to convince people he’s running, and his power is such that the GOP nomination is his for the asking. But as I wrote Monday about Biden, is it really such a slam dunk for Trump, a guy who’ll be 78 in the next election? There’s also his considerable baggage and the prospect of defeat that would have history render him a two-time loser. BIDEN SAYS HE’S RUNNING, BUT PUNDITS AND POLS ARE HIGHLY DOUBTFUL But as with his successor, if Trump harbors any doubts about running, there’s no way he would voice them now and instantly surrender his leverage.

              more   President Joe Biden asked U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee Don Cochran — a Trump appointee — to resign in February, but nine months later Biden still hasn’t nominated Cochran’s replacement. David Boling, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee, told The Tennessee Star on Monday that he is not aware if Biden has nominated someone to take the position. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office continues to operate in its normal capacity and functions and is currently under the leadership of Acting U.S. Attorney Mark H. Wildasin,” Boling said. “The Office has no control or involvement in the nomination process or timing.” Boling directed The Star to the offices of U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and U.S. Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) for more information. Members of Blackburn’s and Hagerty’s communications’ staff, however, did not return requests for comment before Monday’s stated deadline. Blackburn said on her U.S. Senate website that she and Hagerty are currently accepting applications for the positions of United States attorneys in the Eastern, Middle, and Western Districts of Tennessee....
    Former President Donald Trump commented on the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse Tuesday on "Hannity" after meeting with the teen in Mar-A-Lago.  Trump said Rittenhouse was subjected to "prosecutorial misconduct."  "[Rittenhouse] should not have had to suffer through a trial for that. He was going to be dead if he didn't pull that trigger that guy that put the gun to his head in one-quarter of a second he was going to pull the trigger.

    (CNN)It's the absolute worst-kept secret in politics: Donald Trump is full-speed-ahead on a 2024 presidential bid.The latest evidence came Tuesday when Politico reported on polling conducted in five swing states -- Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin -- pitting the former President against current President Joe Biden.The polling was paid for by the Trump super PAC "Make America Great Again, Again!" which is the real name for the organization. CNN does not typically report partisan polls as they are paid for by, well, partisan candidates.The data, according to Politico, showed Trump ahead of Biden in each of the states by margins ranging from 3 points (Georgia) to 12 points (Michigan).The numbers, while clearly encouraging for Trump, are less important than the fact the polling is being conducted at all.Read MoreWhat surveys in those five swing states are clearly meant to make clear -- to anyone and everyone considering a run for the 2024 GOP nomination: Trump is the prohibitive favorite in any such race."Poll after poll clearly demonstrates that former President Donald Trump is still the 800-pound gorilla in the...
    In five swing states that former president Donald Trump lost in 2020, he is now beating His Fraudulency Joe Biden. Far-left Politico reports that a recent poll conducted by Team Trump shows “the former president led Biden in Arizona by 8 percentage points, Georgia by 3 points, Michigan by 12 points, Pennsylvania by 6 points and Wisconsin by 10 points.” Should Trump decide to run again, something he’s obviously thinking seriously about, these five states (which he won in 2016) and their 73 electoral votes would put him back in the White House. Should Trump recapture the presidency in 2024, he would be only the second president in American history to do so after losing the White House. In four of the five states, the polling shows Trump over the magic 50 percent mark. Here are the specifics… Arizona: Trump 51, Biden 43. Georgia: Trump 48, Biden 45. Michigan: Trump 53, Biden 41. Pennsylvania: Trump 51, Biden 45. Wisconsin: Trump 52, Biden 42. In the “definitely” vote for Trump and Biden column, Trump is +4 in Arizona (44-40 percent), +3...
