    Moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin played coy when asked if he would support President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.  'You know, we'll just have to wait and see, I'm not predicting anything,' Manchin told fired CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who now hosts a podcast entitled, the Chris Cuomo project. Manchin first said the voters would have to decide before landing on that answer.  'I believe that basically the people will make a decision state by state and the people in my state will not support a national Democratic figure right now that I can see,' said Manchin, whose West Virginia hasn't voted for a Democrat since President Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election.  Moderate Democratic Sen.

    In a Friday appearance on Hannity, former White House senior adviser Stephen Miller absurdly claimed that if former President Donald Trump were still president, “we would already have modified vaccines” to deal with the new Omicron Covid-19 variant. Yes, to be clear, Miller is talking about the Omicron (B.1.1.529) SARS-CoV-2 variant that was first reported to the World Health Organization by South Africa on Wednesday, and designated as a “variant of concern” (VOC) by WHO earlier on Friday, mere hours before he decided to make this absolutely ridiculous claim on a nationally televised program. “The first known confirmed B.1.1.529 infection was from a specimen collected on 9 November 2021,” wrote WHO in their statement. Guest host Tammy Bruce said that the current vaccine boosters were “for the alpha version,” and “weren’t adjusted,” like flu shots were for the annual strains of the influenza virus. “So it seems like we’re rushing when we don’t even know what this new variant is going to do,” said Bruce. “But really, a lot of this, we can’t deny, has been so political. Do you see...
    America's political media is laser-focused on the state of Virginia Governor's race between former governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Younkin. Virginia, while a state that has trended blue in recent years - with President Biden winning it by 10 points last year - has now been officially declared by the nonpartisan Cook Political report as a toss up. And many Republicans anecdotally feel very confident that Glenn Younkin can pull off a close win. Yet this is a race that Terry McAuliffe ought to be easily winning given how Biden performed in the state in the last general election. Instead he's flailing, with Democrats bringing everyone under the sun to campaign for him, from President Obama and Vice President Harris to President Biden himself. Sadly for him, the biggest guns the Democrats can deploy are shooting him in the foot by reminding the average Virginian voter just how out of touch their economic and social policies truly are. America's political media is laser-focused on the state of Virginia Governor's race between former governor Terry McAuliffe (second from right) and...
    Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) unleashed on General Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in a hearing on the U.S.’ chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. As Milley and Austin appeared before the House Armed Services Committee the day after their hearing with the Senate committee, Gaetz went off about their assessments on Afghanistan and broader decisions around the Middle East. “It seems like you are chronically bad at this,” Gaetz said as he railed on about the Afghanistan government’s fragility and Milley’s conversations with multiple journalists. He then appropriated “the big lie” — a phrase to decry former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election falsehoods — in order to declare that “the big lie that this was ever going to be successful and we could ever rely on the Afghanistan government for anything at all.” Gaetz continued by accusing Milley of undermining the military’s chain of command, and he steamrolled over the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff when he tried to counter that insinuation. He eventually brought his tirade to a crescendo as he spoke about Milley’s statement that he...
    The pandemonium playing out in Afghanistan is giving at least one Trump supporter some ideas.   Some fans of the former president still believe he rightly won the 2020 election and will be reinstated, and at least one is threatening a Taliban-style coup if President Biden and Congress 'don't get their heads out of their butt.'  'I don't think there's going to be a 2024 election until we get the 2020 results,' Stephen Palmer, donning a graying beard, a vest with patchwork and a camouflage hat with an American flag on it, said outside of an 'America First' rally hosted in Des Moines, Iowa by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ga., and Matt Gaetz, Fla. on Thursday 'There's no way at this point to overturn the 2020 election, right?' CNN's Donie O'Sullivan asked the Trump super-fan.   'There's always a way,' Palmer replied, referencing the Arizona election audit.  Results from the highly criticized election audit were due Monday, but two members of the five-person audit team were 'quite sick' after testing positive for Covid-19.  'There's millions of guns here. You know, it took...
    Joe Biden overinflated that efficiency of vaccines, especially against the Delta variant, during his gaffe-filled town hall on Wednesday where he claimed the jab will prevent Americans from contracting coronavirus.  'We're not in the position where we think that any virus, including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of unvaccinated people, the – the various shots that people are getting now cover that,' Biden said during a CNN town hall in Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday. 'You're OK,' he assured. 'You're not going to – you're not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.' This statement is false considering many vaccinated Americans have contracted coronavirus, as well as been hospitalized and fallen fatal to the disease. 'If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the IC unit, and you're not going to die,' the president told host Don Lemon on stage at Mount St. Joseph University. 'So it's gigantically important that ... we all act like Americans who care about our fellow Americans,' he added....
    On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. and U.N. Gilad Erdan stated that President Joe Biden supported Israel, there were disagreements over when to end the conflict between Israel and Hamas, and that while Israel did strike a significant blow against Hamas’ terror capabilities, it will have to see if they successfully restored deterrence. Co-host Pete Hegseth asked, “Has the Biden administration been as supportive as you would like?” Erdan responded, “Yes. And I don’t intend to give grades to the presidents of the United States. I was encouraged because I was on the president[‘s] and the prime minister[‘s] calls each time. They spoke on the phone like six times, and I heard a strong commitment that came from the president to the security of the state of Israel and our right to defend our citizens. He even said yesterday — or two days ago in his statement that he’s committed to replenish the Iron Dome system. So, yeah, he supported us. We didn’t agree on everything. I mean, the timing...
    President Joe Biden gave his first primetime address to the nation on Thursday night, in which he said that “if we do our part,” then “there’s a good chance” Americans will be able to have “small” events by Independence Day. “This doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together,” Biden said. “I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn, and when you can find an opportunity,” he said, adding he is urging all states to make all American adults eligible for a coronavirus vaccine by May 1. The president also suggested that if enough people get vaccinated, then that will mean “there’s a good chance” Americans will be able to have small get-togethers for Independence Day. “If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the fourth, there’s a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbeque and celebrate Independence Day,” Biden said. “That doesn’t mean large events with lots of...
    Republican California Rep. Tom McClintock said Wednesday that there might not have been any Capitol riot if the Black Lives Matter (BLM) and antifa rioters had been prosecuted “with the same determination” as impeachment. “If we had prosecuted BLM and antifa rioters across the country with the same determination these last six months, this incident may not have happened at all,” McClintock said in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, which is considering whether to impeach President Donald Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced the one article of impeachment on Tuesday that accuses Trump of inciting insurrection. On Jan. 6, Trump supporters fought with Capitol Police and stormed the Capitol building, forcing members of Congress to seek safety while five people were killed in the riot. (RELATED: House Democrats Set To Introduce Articles Of Impeachment) McClintock called impeachment “the most solemn and consequential act that Congress can take” next to declaring war but suggested it was not being used with discretion. “To use it in this manner, in the heat of the moment, with no hearings, no...
    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a new interview Monday that his office would not have said anything about his call with Donald Trump if the president hadn’t falsely tweeted about it. As Politico reported today, Raffensperger’s office decided to record the president because of Trump’s record of “reinventing history.” And as one adviser put it, “So if he’s going to try to dispute anything on the call, it’s nice to have something like this, hard evidence, to dispute whatever he’s claiming about the secretary. Lindsey Graham asked us to throw out legally cast ballots. So yeah, after that call, we decided maybe we should do this.” And in that call, Trump very clearly pressured Raffensperger on the election results, falsely claimed he won Georgia, and threw out a number of conspiracy theories Raffensperger and his general counsel had to smack down. 11Alive reporter Brendan Keefe directly asked Raffensperger, “If the president hadn’t tweeted, and tweeted something that was false, would we have ever heard that call recording?” The secret Trump/Raffensperger recording was released because of the...
    (CNN)Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert's federal lawsuit seeking to empower Vice President Mike Pence in his "discretion" to unilaterally reject certain Electoral College votes -- specifically and conveniently, the ones that went for President-elect Joe Biden from key swing states -- is dead on arrival and accomplishes nothing beyond giving false hope to the last and most reality-resistant of the election deniers. Elie HonigHere's the easiest way to understand why Gohmert's lawsuit is so ridiculous. If Gohmert was right -- if the vice president could, at his own whim, simply discard certain electoral votes while accepting others, then on January 6, 2017, Vice President Joe Biden could have decided to install President Hillary Clinton, rather than Donald Trump. And on January 6, 2001, Vice President Al Gore could have named himself the winner of the 2000 election. Vice President Dan Quayle could have declared from the lectern to Congress on January 6, 1993, that President George H.W. Bush had actually defeated challenger Bill Clinton in the 1992 election. Vice President Walter Mondale could have done the same for Jimmy Carter in...
    Without consultation between the two teams succeeding the American executive, “it is possible that more people die”, warned Mr. Biden, citing in particular the urgency to prepare the distribution of the vaccines as soon as they are available. “If we have to wait until January 20 (the day of the inauguration of the next president, editor’s note) to start planning, that makes us take a month, a month and a half behind,” assured Mr. Biden, speaking from his home base in Wilmington, Delaware. “And it is so crucial that this coordination starts now … Now or as quickly as possible,” he insisted. By refusing to acknowledge his electoral defeat and instead claiming to be the one who will preside over the United States for the next few years, Donald Trump is raising concerns and breaking with the tradition according to which the elected president is to be included, at least as a observer, in the major decisions of the transition period at the White House.
    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume questioned Saturday why thousands of people are allowed to gather in cities across America to celebrate the projected election victory of Joe Biden while many sports fans are banned from attending games due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Over the past six months, critics have repeatedly slammed what appears to be a politically-motivated double standard that allowed demonstrations like Black Lives Matter marches to take place, while other outdoor events have been shut down or condemned by Democratic officials and members of the media. On Saturday, as the Fox News Decision Desk projected Biden to win both Pennsylvania and Nevada and become the 46th president, thousands of his supporters -- many of them wearing masks -- took to the streets to sing and cheer the incoming 46th president.  BIDEN WINS PRESIDENCY, TRUMP DENIED SECOND TERM IN WHITE HOUSE, FOX NEWS PROJECTS One viral video of a celebration outside of the White House showed the crowd singing "YMCA," which caught Hume's attention. "If this is ok because people are masked, why isn’t it ok to have fans in masks...
    Cher, the left-wing pop star with an estimated net worth of more than $360 million, proclaimed that if President Donald Trump is reelected, it would mean the end of freedom in America. And we “will have nothing” other than “what Putin’s idea of heaven is.” “Vote, because, if you don’t vote, we’ll have nothing. If he gets another four years in office, we will have nothing. We will have Putin’s idea of what heaven is. We will have Erdogan’s idea of what heave is,” insisted Cher at a Biden campaign event this weekend. “We will have all of these people, all these autocrats who will have his ear, who will be paying him money, and we will have no power.” Watch Below: Cher: "If he gets another four years in office, we will have nothing.

    Fox News host Chris Wallace said Thursday on “America’s Newsroom” that if the allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden had financially profited from his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings that would have been discovered by now. While discussing tonight’s presidential debate, Wallace said, “It’s certainly going to be brought up tonight.” He continued, “If Kristen Welker doesn’t bring it up — and I think she will — the president will bring it up.” He added, “It is interesting you saw yesterday Governor Huckabee say if you want to bring it up fine, but you have to talk about what people’s concerns, their daily lives are, healthcare, economy, jobs, all that stuff. Marc Thiessen, the former speechwriter for George W. Bush, said the same thing. I think the president has to be a little careful because you heard Barack Obama yesterday point out that The New York Times had revealed that Donald Trump has — not had, but has — a secret bank in China. And said that, you know, if that had come out when he was president, people would have called him Beijing Barry....
    President Trump warned Iran during an interview on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show not to “f--- around” with United States. "If you f--- around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before,” Trump told Limbaugh Friday during a three-hour visit with the conservative radio host.

    Madison Summers October 7, 2020 0 Comments Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is declaring that if President Donald Trump is still infected with COVID-19 by the next presidential debate scheduled for Oct. 15 then the two should not face off. After noting he tested negative again on Tuesday, Biden told reporters on Tuesday night, “I don’t know exactly what the rules are going to be, and I’m not sure that what President Trump is all about now, I don’t know what his status is. I’m looking forward to being able to debate him, but I just hope all the protocols are followed, what’s necessary at the time.” “Do you feel safe in the same room as someone who still may have COVID?” Biden was asked by a reporter. Biden responded, “Well, I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn’t have a debate.” “By the way, I think we’re going to have to follow very strict guidelines,” the former vice president continued. “Too many people have been infected, and it’s a very serious problem, and so I’ll be...
    Bob Cesca September 1, 2020 11:00AM (UTC) The United States this week surpassed 6 million cases of COVID-19, the most in the world. Even when measuring relative to population, America's standing is dismal and depressing. We're currently ranked 10th in the world with 18,675 cases per million people, and growing by 30-50,000 new cases every day. As I begin to write this essay, midday on Monday, we've already racked up 14,151 cases for the day so far.  Just for the sake of contrast, Italy is ranked 60th in cases per million residents. France is ranked 63rd. Germany is 83rd. Iraq is ranked 49th. Canada is 76th. Again, the U.S. is ranked 10th. There are "shithole countries," as Trump called them, who are faring better than we are. : In case the Red Hat trolls jump into the comments to rubber-stamp Donald Trump's nonsense about how we have the most cases because we do the most testing, the U.S. is ranked 18th in testing per million residents, far from the most in the world (per million), yet we're 10th in cases, and 11th...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Dr. Jill Biden made a virtual visit to Pittsburgh on Tuesday afternoon. She wasn’t actually in the city but participated in a video conference with local teachers to discuss reopening schools. An English and writing teacher for some 36 years, Dr. Biden knows something about the classroom, and she claims her husband’s plan would reopen schools safely. “If my husband Joe were president, we would have a strategic plan. He would have given emergency funding to the schools. We would have a Secretary of Education who would give us direction and help us guide us back into the classroom. He would keep our students and our teachers safe,” said Biden. In a virtual meeting co-hosted by Senator Bob Casey, Biden heard from three area teachers and the head of the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers. “Everyone wants schools to reopen for in-person instruction, and that means creating the conditions that make it happen,” said Nina Esposito-Visgitis, president of the PFT Local 400. “No parent wants to send their child to school unless they feel secure that it will...
    Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has said that information President Donald Trump receives in coronavirus briefings does not match some of the facts on the ground. Fauci, speaking with ABC News for a 20/20 primetime special set to air on Tuesday night, was asked why some parts of the country are still struggling to get adequate testing and personal protective equipment. 'We keep hearing when we go to these task force meetings that these [issues] are being corrected,' Fauci said, according to a preview of the interview from Good Morning America. 'But yet when you go into the trenches, you still hear about that.'  Fauci said he does not have a 'good answer' and 'cannot explain' the discrepancy, but that part of the problem stems from the fact that 'many of the things that we needed were not produced in the United States.'  Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has said that information Trump receives in coronavirus briefings does not match some of the facts on the ground  'We keep hearing when...
    Hillary Clinton argued people should be prepared for President Trump to resist leaving the White House should he lose the 2020 election. Clinton, who lost the 2016 election to Trump, made the claim during a Monday night interview with The Daily Show's Trevor Noah as they spoke about mail-in ballots and the potential for voter suppression. Noah asked Clinton if there was a scenario she could envision in which the president loses the election but argues that a couple instances of voter fraud is enough to get rid of the election results. “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that. But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim," she said in reference to Republican claims about the potential for widespread voter fraud via mail-in ballots. Voting by mail, a longstanding practice, has been fiercely debated as more election officials have expanded access...
    (CNN)Sen. Chris Murphy accused President Donald Trump of undermining his own experts after members of the federal coronavirus task force offered a dire forecast for national infection rates on Tuesday.The option of reopening safely while following prevention guidelines is "why it's so impossible for us to watch the experts who testified today say all the right things, and then have the President on a daily basis undermine them," the Connecticut Democrat told CNN's Anderson Cooper."It's almost as if we have two different federal governments, two parallel governments today," Murphy added. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health and their parent agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, are "saying keep your distance, keep things closed until it's safe to reopen, wear masks," the senator continued. "And then you have the President undermining them on a daily basis."Dr. Anthony Fauci, a coronavirus task force member who's the country's top infectious disease expert, told lawmakers on Capitol Hill earlier in the day that he wouldn't be surprised if the US sees new cases of coronavirus...
    Every time some supposed conservative or Republican explains why he or she can’t vote for President Trump, I wonder if they have thought about the alternative – the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi machine. Our choice in November will not be between President Trump and President Perfection. It will be between President Trump and a nightmare that would end America as we have known it. If former Vice President Joe Biden wins, it means the turnout in favor of Democrats will be such that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., remains leader of a Democratic majority in the House. It also means that Democrats will almost certainly gain control of the Senate, making Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the majority leader. REINCE PRIEBUS WANTS LOTS OF TRUMP-BIDEN DEBATES: 'PRESIDENT IS GOING TO EAT UP JOE BIDEN' Given control of all three instruments of power, what would the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi team do? This is not a question that requires wild speculation. As I outlined in a series of podcasts at Gingrich 360, Pelosi’s $3 trillion HEROES (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions) Act – ostensibly designed to...
    On the radio program Thursday, former New York City Mayor and personal attorney to President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani,told Glenn Beck he expects several arrests to result from the federal probe into the origins of the Russia investigation. "I would be shocked if we did not have seven or eight indictments before the election," Giuliani said, adding that President Trump has "complete confidence" in Attorney General Bill Barr to get the job done. Asked he could name anyone "consequential," Giuliani was quick to bring up former FBI Director James Comey. "Comey committed perjury on his FISA application," he stated. "He gave a sworn statement, that was clear as hell, that the Steele affidavit was verified, and then told people, at or about the very same time, that it wasn't. So he's a witness against himself. Of course, there's 100 pieces of other evidence that he knew it was unverified."
