He meanwhile announced that he was launching a new party...
    Kevin Strickland speaks to reporters on Tuesday after his conviction in a triple murder was vacated after 43 years in prison. Kevin Strickland, a Black man convicted of triple homicide in 1978, was exonerated this month after spending 43 years in prison. But the state of Missouri does not have to pay him one cent for forever changing the course of his life, thanks to state law. That's where his supporters come in, Strickland's attorney Tricia Rojo Bushnell told The Washington Post Friday in a phone interview. A GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Strickland has led to $1.65 million in donations, just short of a $1.75 million goal. “Missouri is not going to pay Mr. Strickland a dime, but the whole world is going to make sure he’s compensated,” Bushnell, executive director of the Midwest Innocence Project, told the Post. Judge James Welsh issued the ruling that freed Strickland, 62, on Tuesday after determining no actual evidence tied him to the scene of the crime. Sherrie Black, 22, Larry Ingram, 21, and John Walker, 20, were killed in a shooting that other people admitted to...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – During Beto O’Rourke’s first rally in North Texas since he entered the Texas Governor’s race last Monday, his campaign said he attracted more than 1,500 people to Dallas Fair Park. Beto in Dallas (credit: CBS 11 News) READ MORE: 'Keeping The Christmas Magic,' Annual Fort Worth Parade Of Lights ‘Making Spirits Bright’ TooO’Rourke told the crowd, “We are the big, bold, beautiful people of Texas who are coming to reclaim this state.” He railed against what he called Governor Greg Abbott’s and Republicans’ extreme policies on guns, abortion, and elections. O’Rourke challenged his supporters to knock on doors, reach new voters, and embrace his philosophy. “Did we decide that we’re not Democrats or Republicans or even Independents, but that we are Texans first and foremost before anything else.” While Democrats are happy O’Rourke has entered the race, a new poll released Sunday suggests he still has work to do. The Dallas Morning News/UT Tyler poll shows Abbott leading O’Rourke 45-39%. When it comes to the impression Texas voters have of O’Rourke, the poll shows 37% have...
    Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon handed himself in to the FBI in Washington on Monday morning after being indicted for defying a subpoena to testify before the House's investigation into the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.  Before entering the FBI field office, he delivered a livestreamed speech to supporters urging them to focus on the big picture. 'I don't want anybody to take their eye off the ball of what we do every day,' he told viewers on the social media app GETTR. 'We got the Hispanics coming on our side, African Americans coming on our side.  'We're taking down the Biden regime every day.' Bannon arrived in a black SUV. Two security guards cleared a path through the waiting media as he made his way to the field office.  He paused before entering to deliver his message to supporters that the day's events were nothing but a distraction.   'I want you guys to stay focused, stay on message,' he said. 'Remember: Signal not noise. This is all noise, that's signal.' Bannon, 67, is one of more than 30...
    Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie is taking jabs at Donald Trump in his new book, Republican Rescue, which is released on Tuesday.  In his book, Christie, 59, argues that the GOP faces danger from conspiracy theorists trying to overtake the party, and writes that Republicans 'need to renounce the conspiracy theories and truth deniers, the ones who know better and the ones who are just plain nuts.'  'We need to give our supporters facts that will help put all these fantasies to rest, so everyone can focus with clear minds on the issues that really matter. We need to quit wasting our time, our energy and our credibility on claims that won't ever convince anyone or bring fresh converts onboard,' Christie wrote in excerpts published by The Guardian on Saturday.  He is appearing to reference Trump's repeated claims that voter fraud was to blame for his loss in the 2020 election.  The book will be released just a week after the former two-term governor mocked Trump for his failed re-election bid and loss to Joe Biden.  Chris Christie paints...
    Jack Ciattarelli slammed Governor Phil Murphy over his 'premature' victory speech and says he will not concede in New Jersey's gubernatorial race until all 21 counties finish counting ballots.  'The governor's victory speech last night was premature,' the Republican said in a 'Jack Chat' video posted to Twitter Thursday.  'No one should be declaring victory or conceding the election until every legal vote is counted.'   Murphy, an incumbent Democrat, won reelection in the reliably blue state by a razor-thin margin of 2 percent out of 2.4 million ballots counted. Ciattarelli argues that 'there are still tens of thousands of vote-by-mail and provisional ballots yet to be counted' and that no one should claim victory or concede until that process is complete - which could take weeks. He said that any 'decision on a recount or audit' would be made after the completion of the counting process.  Jack Ciattarelli (pictured giving a 'Jack Chat' video update Thursday) slammed Governor Phil Murphy in a social media video, saying his victory speech was 'premature' The GOP candidate also shared that his legal and...

    Hundreds of QAnon supporters gathered on the infamous grassy knoll in Dallas on Tuesday in anticipation of the long-dead John F. Kennedy Jr. announcing he is alive and he will run as former President Donald Trump's vice presidential candidate in 2024. Pictures posted to social media by Steven Monacelli, the publisher of Protean magazine, showed scores of people gathered outside the AT&T Discovery Plaza in Dallas at around 8pm on Monday. Most were wearing shirts proudly displaying their support for Trump, with one women seen wearing a campaign-style T-shirt emblazoned with the words: 'Trump/JFK Jr.' The next day, crowds could be seen on the grassy knoll where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, as they eagerly awaited JFK Jr.'s return. They recited the Pledge of Allegiance at 12.29pm, expecting JFK Jr. to make his announcement at 12.30pm, and chanted, 'Let's Go Brandon,' a euphemism for ''F*** Joe Biden,' as they held a Trump/Kennedy flag. As Monacelli writes, they were there due to a 'popular QAnon theory recently' that 'JFK Jr., of the Kennedy family, will be making a...
    Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney (D) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s (R) and his supporters did not believe slavery and the Holocaust were real. Stoney is the co-chair of the Terry McAuliffe (D) campaign. Mitchell said, “How did Terry McAuliffe let Glenn Youngkin reframe the debate on education, including things like Toni Morrison’s book ‘Beloved’ becoming a flashpoint in this race with the issue of Critical Race Theory, which is not even taught in Virginia schools, but it’s become, according to most of the polls a big deal?” Stoney said, “You are correct. We have seen Glenn Youngkin sort of divide parents all throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, pitting parents against parents, demonizing teachers, demonizing public education, and to me, that’s not the sort of governor I know that Virginians want. We want a governor who understands that taught about the seriousness and how barbaric slavery was featured in ‘Beloved’ is actually correct. In order for us to actually grow as a commonwealth, we have to understand that slavery was real, the Holocaust was real and unfortunately...
    For months, years even, the accusations have piled up against Prince Andrew, always denied by him but left unchallenged with nothing more than an apparent vow of silence. Yet this omerta has proved to be anything but self-protective. The prince’s reputation is in the gutter and the good name of the wider Royal Family has been soiled by the fallout. Now, however, the gloves are off. Andrew’s adversarial American lawyers have come out fighting to confront the sexual abuse claims that have swirled about the head of the Queen’s favourite son for so long. The question is will it work, or might their aggressive intervention risk damaging the prince even more? Andrew's lawyers accused Miss Roberts of only suing Andrew in the hope of securing ‘another pay day’ Anyone who calls in ‘evidence’ from a New York tabloid newspaper by way of wreaking vengeance is entitled to have their motives seriously examined. And that is precisely what happened yesterday in the wake of the 36-page motion his legal team submitted to dismiss the civil action brought in the US courts by...
    Donald Trump said Saturday evening that his loyal base will need to turn out for Republican Glenn Youngkin to win the Virginia gubernatorial race on Tuesday. 'I think he should win,' Trump told Fox news' Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday evening. 'I'll be honest, my base has to turn out.' Trump endorsed Youngkin against Democratic contender Terry McAuliffe, who served a Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018. The former president is holding a tele-rally for Youngkin on Monday, which the candidate will not make an appearance at – making it seem that he is trying to distance himself from the former president.  The endorsement, Trump insinuated, is key for Republican candidates to get voters from the ex-president's base to turn out in elections that may have otherwise not gained as much national attention. Democrats have labeled Youngkin as a 'Trump acolyte' to try and deter independents and moderates from voting him in as the next Virginia governor, but Trump said that tactic 'backfires because I think it gets the base to come out and vote.' 'The last...
    The Lincoln Project co-founder Stuart Stevens has refused to apologize after the 'Never Trump' group admitted to planting five people carrying tiki torches in front of the Republican candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin's bus. Stevens' statement came as liberals and Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe's staff joined conservatives in bashing the stunt. McAuliffe's campaign manager called it 'disgusting.'   CNN's Chris Cuomo asked Stevens, appearing with longtime Democratic strategist James Carville, if he wanted to apologize for the smear.   Stevens, a former Republican strategist, told Cuomo that this was what The Lincoln Project received millions in donations to do. 'No,' said Stevens. 'Listen, every day I hear people pleading with the Lincoln Project to help show Democrats how to win, how to play hardball. You know, this is an example.'  Stuart Stevens, a former Republican strategist and co-founder of the 'Never Trump' group, stood behind the stunt when questioned by CNN's Chris Cuomo Friday ¿It was to illustrate a point that Youngkin has not denounced Trump saying there were ¿fine people on both sides¿ in Charlottesville.¿ ¿ Democratic Strategist @JamesCarville pic.twitter.com/tVRTjkNJIU—...
    BANGKOK (AP) — The youngest daughter of former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, whose ouster by a military coup in 2006 triggered years of political instability, has taken a post with a party closely associated with her father. Thailand’s largest opposition party, Pheu Thai, announced Thursday that Paetongtarn Shinawatra was named chief of its Inclusion and Innovation Advisory Committee at its general assembly in the northeastern province of Khon Kaen. Paetongtarn, 35, currently serves as chief executive officer of a company in the hospitality sector. Her appointment comes as Thaksin, 72, who has been in self-imposed exile most of the time since he was toppled, has been increasing his profile amid rumors that current Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha may call new elections. Thaksin is widely seen as seeking some sort of political comeback. Thaksin is a billionaire whose populist policies won him strong electoral support. He now lives mostly in Dubai to avoid serving prison time in Thailand on corruption charges he says were politically motivated. He is a contentious figure whose fall set off a sometimes violent struggle...
    Candace Owens has sparked a huge backlash after claiming Alec Baldwin's accidental shooting was 'poetic justice' following the actor's criticism of Donald Trump. The conservative pundit, 32, has since deleted her provocative tweets and Instagram posts after criticizing Baldwin over the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Owens wrote: 'Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers. 'What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic justice if it weren't for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him. Pray for their families. So sad.'  Candace Owens has sparked a huge backlash after claiming Alec Baldwin's accidental shooting was 'poetic justice' The actor, 63, accidentally opened fire on the set of Rust, believing the gun was 'cold'  The right-wing talk show host then added: 'Will correct that last tweet to say Alec Baldwin *killed* someone- not murdered someone, as murder carries a different legal definition. 'Literally not one single thing that Alec Baldwin has said about Donald Trump and his supporters is going to age well.'  RELATED ARTICLES...

    Iowa Democratic Party Chair Ross Wilburn, the first black chairman of the Iowa party, was threatened with lynching and called the n-word after penning an op-ed critical of former President Donald Trump.  Wilburn told The Des Moines Register that he received two threatening phone messages and a threatening email to his work account, which all made references to what he wrote in the opinion column.  'The voicemails include very explicit language. Every other word was the n-word,' said Wilburn, who represents Ames in the state House.  Iowa Democratic Party Chair Ross Wilburn, the first black chairman of the Iowa party, was threatened with lynching and called the n-word after penning an op-ed critical of former President Donald Trump Ames Police Cmdr.

    Dr. Fauci on whether politics of COVID boosters has gotten ahead of public health youtu.be Conspiracy theorists and reality deniers?Perhaps some introspection would pay dividends for Fauci. Most of his critics are not embracing conspiracy theories, nor are they denying reality. However, they are upset at Fauci for continually moving the goal posts on when American life can return to normal. In fact, Fauci even admitted in an interview with the New York Times last year to deceiving the American public about COVID-19 herd immunity. Fauci said he slowly increased his prediction for the herd immunity threshold to convince more Americans to get vaccinated. Now, nearly one year after COVID vaccines were given emergency authorization, Fauci has said it remains "too soon to tell" whether Americans should gather with their families for Christmas. Fauci's critics are also upset by his apparent rejection of American freedom. "I think what people have to appreciate, that indeed you do have personal liberties for yourself and you should be in control of that," Fauci said recently. "But you are a member of...
    Former President Donald Trump issued a stark warning to Republicans as he continued to repeat his allegations of voter 'fraud': back his ongoing efforts or Republicans 'will not be voting' in the off-year elections and beyond. Trump made the threat in one of a flurry of statements from his 'Save America' PAC Wednesday, after once again claiming he 'won' the election. If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.' Trump's attack comes as GOP leaders are eyeing the 2022 elections as potential takeover opportunity, with Democrats holding just three-vote majority in the House. The Senate is split 50-50. Former President Donald Trump, who held a rally in Iowa Saturday, warned that Republicans won't vote if the party doesn't 'solve' what he called 'fraud' in the 2020 elections With covid still raging, built-in advantages, historical trends for off-year elections, the GOP stands a chance to stop or slow much of the Biden...

    Hollywood actor and Biden ally George Clooney has compared America to a 'battered child' after 'knucklehead' Donald Trump's divisive four years in the White House and sensationally claimed that the former President 'can't stand his own supporters in real life'. Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show in a pre-recorded interview, the Left-wing Democrat - a friend of both the President and Barack Obama - said Americans 'have been rather tough on one another' for the past five years and added 'there's a lot of healing that has to happen and it's going to take time'.  Clooney - a 60-year-old father who is married to Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal, herself 43 - also discussed Joe Biden's waning popularity among US voters while promoting his upcoming film The Tender Bar, which stars Ben Affleck and explores life in 1970s small-town America. A new poll by Quinnipiac University found just 38 percent approve of Biden's job performance. Though 48 per cent of voters said they approve of the President's aggressive approach to Covid including his push for vaccine mandates, less than 40 per cent gave him positive marks on...
    BRONZEVILLE — Timuel Black, the civil rights activist, historian and centenarian from Chicago’s Black Belt, has entered hospice care. Black is getting care in his Drexel Boulevard home, according to a GoFundMe organized Wednesday by Lisa Yun Lee, a cultural activist and executive director of the National Public Housing Museum. Funds raised will go to Zenobia Johnson-Black, his wife of 40 years, to pay for in-home nursing care and other related expenses. “We don’t know how much time Tim has with us, but we want him to be as comfortable and with as much dignity as possible,” Lee wrote on the fundraiser page. Donors gave more than $13,000 as of Wednesday afternoon. The campaign aims to raise $50,000. “Tim has been working for all of us for his whole life, fighting the good fight to create a better world,” Lee said. “Let us join together and show how much we care. Please give generously.” Credit: Colin Boyle/Block Club ChicagoAn archival image of the late Bishop Charles Mason Ford and Timuel Black at the Saint Paul Church of God in...
    Joe Scarborough ruthlessly ridiculed Mike Pence for attacking the media and downplaying the riot where a mob of insurrectionists wanted to put the former vice president to death. Pence gave an interview to Fox News’ Sean Hannity this week where the former VP slammed the media’s continued focus on January 6th, the day former President Donald Trump’s supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol and violently tried to overthrow the 2020 election. As Pence put it, “they want to use that one day to try and demean the character and intentions of 74 million Americans who believed we could be strong again and prosperous again and supported our administration in 2016 and 2020.” That was the same riot where Trump’s supporters chanted “hang Mike Pence” and targeted the former vice president after he rejected the ex-president’s impossible demand to decertify the election. Pence’s attempt to downplay all of this has drawn considerable mockery from political observers, and Scarborough assessed that the ex-veep should be “kept out of office forever.” It’s like calling 9/11 one day in September, it’s like Pearl Harbor one day...
    Former Vice President Mike Pence said Monday that he and former President Donald Trump have a 'strong relationship' and have 'talked through' the events at the end of the Trump administration – when Pence oversaw the count that made Joe Biden president.  Pence made the comments in a prime-time interview Monday with Fox News host Sean Hannity, who broached the fraught topic of the Capitol riot and the split it exposed between Trump and Pence, who are each potential 2024 presidential candidates.  'Look, you can't spend almost five years in a political foxhole with somebody without developing a strong relationship,' Pence told Hannity, who vouched repeatedly for Trump's stewardship while the two were in office.  Hannity put the question to him by saying: 'I know a lot has been made over the disagreement you had with the president as it relates to Jan. 6.' The host told him his own sources and understanding were that 'you two have a strong relationship to this day. What is your relationship with the president?'  Former Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News that...
    Former Attorney General William Barr warned then-President Trump that he could lose the election because some suburban voters did not view him favorably, a new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa claims. Barr emphasized to Trump that most suburban Republican voters “just think you’re a f**king a**hole,” according to the new book, “Peril.” The book is heavily critical of Trump’s time in office and is scheduled to be released next week. Well. | Barr warned Trump that he would lose the election because suburban voters ‘just think you’re a fucking asshole,’ book says https://t.co/XiC1pKIz0T via @businessinsider — Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) September 18, 2021 “In my opinion, this is not a base election. Your base is critical, and you’ll get it out,” Barr allegedly told Trump in a meeting that was detailed in the book. “And there are a lot of people out there, independents and Republicans in the suburbs of the critical states that think you’re an a**hole. They think you act like an a**hole and you got to, you got to start taking that into account.” (RELATED: ‘Pathetic’:...
    Four police officers arrived at the home of missing 'van life girl' Gabby Petito's fiancé Brian Laundrie as supporters ask 'where's Gabby?' and jeer for him to reveal the truth about her disappearance.  Video surfaced of four police officers entering 23-year-old Brian Laundrie's Florida home on Friday afternoon after being let in by an unidentified family member.  'Bring Gabby home!' a woman can be heard yelling as police made their way in to the home, referring to of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, who has not been heard from since August 30 while she was on a cross-country trip with her 23-year-old fiancé.  Scroll Down For Video:  Police seen entering the Florida family home of Brian Laundrie on Friday afternoon  Also demanding answers was a man on a megaphone who asked 'Where's Gabby, Brian?' repeatedly, joined by others who crowded the Laundrie's front yard recording the police entering the home.  'We're out here, Laundrie family, we're out here, we'll be out here everyday!' the man on the megaphone yelled towards the home.    At one point one of the officers exited the home and...
    Virginia's former Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe was caught maskless violating federal COVID health rules during an Amtrak journey from New York to Washington, D.C., according to photos that surfaced on Tuesday. McAuliffe ran Virginia from 2014 to 2018 and is currently campaigning for a second term in the state's upcoming November election.  But the pro-mask mandate Democrat was accused of an 'absolute double standard' by an anonymous Amtrak passenger who handed the photos over to Fox. The photos purport to show McAuliffe on July 29 at Penn Station's Moynihan Train Hall in New York City.  He's seen walking through the train terminal while mid-conversation on his phone.  No sign of a face covering can be seen, despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) January directive that requires everyone going through airports, train stations and other transit hubs to wear one at all times.    The CDC also recommends wearing masks regardless of vaccination status if you live in a COVID hotspot.  McAuliffe expressed strong support for sitting Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, when he mandated masks for students...
    As the Los Angeles police investigators try to identify a woman wearing a gorilla mask who threw an egg at Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder in Venice, some of the talk show host’s supporters are complaining that the Wednesday incident that forced Elder to cut his campaigning short is not generating more outrage. The gorilla mask prompted conservative commentators to suggest that the incident was racially motivated, given the white supremacist history of dehumanizing Black people with ape imagery. Two law enforcement sources told The Times on Friday that the department was working the case as a misdemeanor battery because the woman gave no indication she was moved by hate in a video taken at the scene. But they stressed that no decision will be made until she’s identified and police get more details about what happened. The altercation occurred when Elder, as part of his “Recall Express” campaign bus tour, was visiting homeless encampments Wednesday morning when he was angrily surrounded by a group of homeless people and advocates. California Larry Elder cuts short Venice homeless...
    Kenny Mayne’s 27-year tenure with ESPN came to an end less than four months ago. And if you follow Mayne on social media, you will notice his political commentary has increased since departing the Disney-owned sports brand. Mayne explained to John Gonzalez of The Ringer that his amplified political bluntness is not a coincidence. Although ESPN is often viewed as having liberal bias, management still attempts to make their talent follow “stick to sports” guidelines. “They were clearly threatening some of us, me particularly.” Mayne said of ESPN, adding that he was “definitely on the watch list. They told me so: ‘There’s a group of people that watch your Twitter.’” Mayne admitted to The Ringer that he often held back at ESPN, noting he didn’t have the same courage as his former colleague Jemele Hill. Hill’s courage to speak out against Donald Trump while she was at ESPN contributed to a suspension and numerous public battles, before ultimately influencing her and the Worldwide Leader to part ways. Mayne recalled being asked by his boss Norby Williamson, “why do you...
    A man dressed as a supreme court judge holds a toilet reading "Fake news factory" as Bolsonaristas threaten congress and courts On Tuesday, Metrópoles reported that Trump advisor Jason Miller was detained while boarding a jet at Brasília International Airport. Miller is being held in connection with an ongoing operation looking into “the organization of anti-democratic acts in Brazil.” That detention came following Miller’s appearance at a CPAC meeting in Brazil. Miller now claims that he refused to cooperate with authorities and was allowed to leave without telling them anything. It also comes as ongoing violence is shaking Brazil, and as “Bolsonaristas” threaten not just to attack the Congress but also the Supreme Court. As The Rio Times reports, justices have requested additional security after Bolsonaro’s followers threatened to invade the building. In addition to the capital, right-wing protests are going on across Brazil. Bolsonaro has been attending these protests, including the ones in Brasilia where, as The Guardian reports, right-wing activists supporting President Jair Bolsonaro are attempting to force their wait into Brazil’s Congress. In an all-too-eerie echo of the Jan. 6 attack in the...
    CNN’s Jim Acosta slammed Donald Trump on Sunday after the former president urged supporters to take the coronavirus vaccine, saying Trump had not been vociferous enough — with a guest adding: “He’d rather they die than alienate them.” As Breitbart News reported Saturday night, Trump encouraged vaccination during a rally speech in Alabama. Acosta had the following exchange with Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a medical professor at George Washington University: Acosta: [Trump] seemed to, you know, indicate his support for people getting vaccinated, and then this happened. Let’s watch. [Video clip] Trump: And then we developed the vaccine — three vaccines, in three months, in nine months. And actually, I’ll tell you it was three days less than nine months, and it’s great. And you know what? I believe, totally, in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do. [Cheers] Trump: But I recommend, take the vaccines! I did it, it’s good, take the vaccines. But, you got — [Boos, and cheers] Trump: No, that’s okay, that’s all right. You got your freedoms. But I happened...
    Donald Trump was met with a round of boos Saturday night after he encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The former president was hosting a rally Save America rally in Cullman, Alabama when he touted the benefit of the shot, saying vaccines are 'good'. 'I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you've got to do what you've got to do. But I recommend that you take the vaccines,' Trump said to the crowd, who replied with jeers. 'You've got your freedoms,' he responded. 'But I happened to take the vaccine.' Donald Trump was met with negativity and a round of boos at a rally in Cullman, Alabama on Saturday night after he encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated against COVID-19 Trump told the crowd: 'I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you've got to do what you've got to do. But I recommend that you take the vaccines. You've got your freedoms. But I happened to take the vaccine' Once the booing stopped, Trump told his supporters they would be the 'first to know' if the vaccine was...
    IN the end, Steve Bruce’s much-anticipated radio phone-in with the Toon Army was hardly fire and brimstone. If the Newcastle manager was anxious at what lay in store before taking questions for an hour, he need not have been. 5Steve Bruce said it was important for the supporters to hear from him directly 5Steve Bruce insisted he wants to play like Kevin Keegan's iconic Newcastle team Instead of debating what he said, social media was awash with supporters furious at those who did call in for giving him an easy ride. When the heat was occasionally on, the Geordie’s stock response was “What a great question” before giving answers they have all heard before. A boyhood Newcastle fan, Bruce, 60, spoke of being nine years old when they last lifted a major trophy in 1969. And while he manfully tried to exude positivity over the squad assembled at the start of his third season, there was one great big dose of realism. On replicating the joy Kevin Keegan’s Entertainers brought in the mid-90s, Bruce said: “We’d all love to play...
    House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wants the world to know who supports him so he's selling bright red tee shirts emblazoned with the word "moron." Last month Speaker Nancy Pelosi called McCarthy a "moron" for opposing the Capitol physician's mask mandate. It's only been a few weeks but McCarthy is responding by launching a fundraising campaign, sacrificing the self-esteem of whatever devotees he might have, hoping they'll show the world who they are. "Nancy Pelosi JUST CALLED Kevin McCarthy a "moron" for opposing the mask mandate. You're a top patriot and HE NEEDS YOU to get this t-shirt to oppose HER & the Radical Socialist Left," the copy on the GOP fundraising site WinRed reads. McCarthy "is attempting to reclaim the word for those who oppose wearing masks during the COVID pandemic," The American Independent reports.From Your Site Articles

    Former President Trump's supporters can soon carry a card in their wallet as a sign of their loyalty. In its latest bid for fundraising, the Trump team said it would launch the special cards, which could be fooled for credit cards, only for the former president's 'STRONGEST supporters.'  Trump's PAC sent out two emails to supporters on Thursday asking for their input on the design of the red card, which will bear Trump's signature.   'The card you select will be carried by Patriots all around the Country,' one email said. 'They will be a sign of your dedicated support to our movement to SAVE AMERICA, and I'm putting my full trust in you.' It's not clear what a card-carrier is entitled to.  Supporters were sent four drafts of the card and asked to vote on their favorite  Trump's PAC said that the former president had asked for a vote from his supporters. 'We should let the American People decide - they ALWAYS know best!'   The new 'Trump Card' is the latest in a series of Trump...

    On Tuesday, Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady stabbed Donald Trump in the back and mocked MAGA voters during a visit to Joe Biden’s White House. This is quite an about face from Brady’s years of pretending to be Trump’s friend. During his visit to Biden’s White House to celebrate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 2021 Super Bowl win, Brady engaged in some back and forth with Biden to mock those who believe that Biden’s election was rife with fraud. The 2021 Superbowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid a visit to the White House earlier today. Tom Brady: "I think 40% of the people still dont think we won." President Biden: "I understand that…" pic.twitter.com/WznR6xXLs2 — The Post Millennial (@TPostMillennial) July 20, 2021 Brady’s decision to join his team for the White House visit was itself an abrupt turn-around from the years of the Trump administration when Brady refused to attend his during team’s visits to the nation’s capital. The mocking of Trump and his voters may also seem like an about face considering the years Brady has posed as a...
    It remains to be seen whether or not former President Donald Trump will seek the GOP nomination in the 2024 presidential election — and who Trump will endorse if he decides not to run. The non-Trump possibilities often mentioned by pundits range from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. But one person who isn't generating enthusiasm among many Republican voters, journalist David Siders stresses in an article published by Politico this week, is former Vice President Mike Pence. Raymond Harre, vice chairman of the Scott County Republican Party in Iowa, told Politico, "I don't imagine (Pence would) have a whole lot of support. There are some Trump supporters who think he's the Antichrist." In the past, Pence might have done well as a Republican presidential candidate. He is a severe Christian fundamentalist and an outspoken social conservative with an anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-feminist resumé. And in 2016, Trump thought enough of Pence to make him his running mate. But in the minds of Trump devotees, Pence committed an unpardonable sin when, on...
    Ivanka Trump tried for hours to convince then President Donald Trump to order his supporters to stop rioting at the Capitol Building on January 6, a new book says.    Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker captured scenes from January 6 in their forthcoming book, I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J.

    Democratic State Representative Gene Wu continued on Wednesday to troll media and make light of fleeing Texas to block Republicans' voting rights legislation in posting images of the food he's eating as a new 'fugitive'. 'BREAKING NEWS Fox News!' Gene Wu wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning. 'Democrat's breakfast only includes fruit, yogurt, and coffee!' He included an image of his breakfast, likely a continental offering at the $200 per night Washington Plaza Hotel – where the lawmakers are staying in Northwest Washington, D.C. 'No steak? No whiskey? What a wuss!' the Democratic Texas lawmaker sarcastically continued in his tweet. '(You should pay me... being a Fox News reporter is easy as falling off the back of a pickup truck.)' In another tweet, Wu told people to 'Forget the food,' and pleaded that instead someone 'Send Bourbon!' '(All we brought was 12 Miller Lites) -Texas Democrats,' he wrote, in reference to the several reports pointing out that a picture from the coach bus carrying the Democrats to the airport in Austin included a case of Miller Lite beer taking up one...
    Bill Cosby shared a message to his supporters to celebrate his 84th birthday on July 12. Cosby’s 2018 sexual assault conviction was overturned by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court last week after it found that an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case. The disgraced actor had served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia. He had vowed to serve all 10 years rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand. To celebrate his birthday, Cosby, who continues to deny any wrongdoing, issued a statement to his supporters thanking them for "fighting" for his freedom and allowing him to spend his 84th birthday out of prison.  "On my Birthday — I whole heartedly thank you for your support, thank you for fighting for my freedom and thank you for staying grounded and on the case. The Revolution Is In The Home," the comedian shared in a statement provided to Fox News. HOW DID BILL COSBY'S CONVICTION OVERTURN HAPPEN? LEGAL EXPERTS WEIGH IN...
    The ex-president defended the actions of the mob of his supporters, who violently took over the Capitol to try to block the peaceful transition of power. Donald Trump on Sunday joined the chorus of Republican lawmakers who are trying to rewrite the history of the Jan. 6 insurrection, praising the mob of his supporters who injured nearly 150 law enforcement officers as they violently broke into the Capitol to try to stop the certification of President Joe Biden's victory as "peaceful" and "great" people. "There was such love at that rally," Trump told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. Trump continued to lie about the size of the crowd and the behavior of the mob — which marched to the Capitol after Trump's speech earlier in the day and then viciously attacked law enforcement officers with flag poles, fence stakes, and chemical irritants such as bear spray to break into the building. Some officers are still grappling with the injuries they sustained that day. "You had over a million people,"...
    (CNN)The Justice Department said this week that former President Donald Trump's delusional claims that he'll be reinstated to the White House could fuel more political violence from his supporters.Trump and some of his allies on the right-wing fringe have pushed the ridiculous theory that he could be reinstated as president next month. There is no legal or constitutional mechanism for that to happen, and Trump's claims of a "stolen" 2020 election have been fully debunked.Federal prosecutors brought up Trump's rhetoric this week in one of the US Capitol riot cases.The rioter, Marine Corps veteran Alex Harkrider, asked a judge to discontinue his GPS tracking and remove his ankle monitor. The Justice Department opposes this request, saying Trump's rhetoric could inspire Harkrider to become violent in the future. Harkrider has pleaded not guilty."Former President Trump continues to make false claims about the election, insinuate that he may be reinstalled in the near future as President without another election, and minimize the violent attack on the Capitol," prosecutors wrote in the filing. "Television networks continue to carry and report on those claims,...

    Donald Trump was pictured arriving back at Trump Tower in New York City on Sunday just a day after he demanded to know which Capitol police officer shot and killed his supporter Ashli Babbitt during the January 6 riot. Trump wore a white MAGA hat as he waved to his supporters while arriving in the Big Apple on Sunday after the former president had spoken to thousands of his supporters on Saturday evening at the Sarasota Fairgrounds in Florida. 'By the way, who shot Ashli Babbitt? Who shot Ashli Babbitt? Who? Who shot Ashli Babbitt ? We all saw the hand. We saw the gun,' Trump said during the rally.

    A MAN allegedly impersonated Donald Trump and members of the then-President's family to dupe unsuspecting supporters out of thousands of dollars. Joshua Hall, of Pennsylvania, faces federal charges of fraud and identity theft after reportedly amassing more than 100,000 followers to fund a fake reelection organization. 3A man has been accused of impersonating Donald Trump and his family to dupe hundreds of Americans out of thousands of dollarsCredit: EPA 3Joshua Hall allegedly pretended to be Trump's youngest son Barron, rightCredit: AP The 22-year-old is accused of impersonating Trump's relatives - including his teenage son Barron - for phony online endorsements for more than a year. Hall is reported to have raised thousands of dollars worth of funds in a fictitious fundraising operation - which he then used for his own personal living expenses, according to the criminal complaint.

In one instance, Hall allegedly impersonated Barron, 15, to falsely claim he was a...
    Donald Trump has issued a speech vowing to 'take back the Senate, House and White House' ahead of his first speech since February. In a video shared shortly before the former president's appearance at the North Carolina Republican Convention in Greenville Saturday night, Trump said: 'I wanna thank everybody for the tremendous support you've shown.  We're going to take back the Senate, take back the House, we're gonna take back the White House and sooner than you think its going to be really something special. 'But the love and the affection and the  respect that you've given all of us. It's really important.

    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the supporters of former President Donald Trump “resent” him because they did not “understand” that comments and recommendations he made during the Trump administration have changed under the Biden administration because the data evolves with time. Fauci said, “Yeah, I mean there is no doubt there are people out there, for one reason or another, resent me for what I did in the last administration, which was not anything that was anti-Trump at all. It was just trying to get the right information, to try and get the right data. What they didn’t seem to understand —I guess that it is understandable that they didn’t understand it— that science is a dynamic process.” He continued, “So something that you know in January—you make a recommendation or a comment about it. But as you get more and more information, the information leads you to change. Because that is what science is, it is a self-correcting process. So when you hear someone say something at...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump has removed the “From the Desk of…” portion of his website which was confirmed to CNBC by senior spokesman Jason Miller Wednesday morning. The section of the site was launched on May 4th and promoted as a new platform for Trump to share messages with his followers after being widely de-platformed from near all social media outlets following the insurrection of January 6th by his supporters. Links to the former section now just resolves to an “alerts” page which features a sign-up dialog for “Exclusive updates from Donald J. Trump.” The reviews of the new communication effort were mixed, but there was a fair amount of mockery about the much-ballyhooed promotion of basic blogging technology that has been available for roughly two decades. CNBC reports: The page, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” has been scrubbed from Trump’s website and “will not be returning,” his senior aide Jason Miller told CNBC. “It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Miller said in email correspondence. He declined...
