    Donald Trump lashed out at Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers on Monday, after the Republican state official told ABC News that he would never vote for the former president again. Bowers had been censured by the Arizona GOP after he testified in front of the Democrat-led House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol in June. The state politician told lawmakers at the public hearing that the ex-president tried to pressure him to overturn Joe Biden's narrow victory in Arizona's 2020 presidential election. Trump took to his Truth Social app one day after he appeared on ABC's This Week to claim Bowers was incapable of managing elections or the southern border crisis. 'Remember Arizona, your so-called "Speaker," Rusty (an appropriate name because he is Rusty, just like steel gets rusty and weak) Bowers, is absolutely terrible,' the former president wrote. 'He is "weak" and wrong on everything, including your horrible Open Border and pathetic election "counting." Vote him out!'  Despite testifying against Trump before the January 6 committee, Bowers still praised him and his policies, and...
    Donald Trump took to his Truth Social platform to launch a scathing attack on former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Saturday. The former president referred to Ryan, 52, as a 'pathetic loser' as he called for him to be ousted from the board of Fox News.  Trump's social media post came after Ryan declared Republicans didn't have 'the guts' to vote to impeach the former president in the wake of January 6.  Trump wrote in part: 'Did anyone notice that Fox News went lame (bad!) when weak RINO Paul Ryan, who is despised in the Great State of Wisconsin for being 'a pathetic loser,' went on the Fox Board.' Trump launched his new attack on his Truth Social platform In his criticism of Fox, Trump said that the network 'won't even talk about an obviously Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, not even a mention' Ryan was elected ten times consecutively in Wisconsin's 1st congressional district between 1999 and 2019 before his retirement. In his criticism of Fox, Trump said that the network 'won't even talk about an obviously Rigged 2020...
    Sen. Mitt Romney is predicting Trump will be the GOP's nominee in 2024 if he runs. The Utah Republican – who twice voted to impeach former President Donald Trump – made the statement following the victory by Trump-backed candidate J.D. Vance in the Ohio Republican primary for Senate. He will succeed Sen. Rob Portman, a more conventional establishment Republican who nevertheless immediately threw his support to Vance following his win Tuesday.   'I don’t delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party,' said Romney, who was the party's presidential nominee in 2012 and was defeated by President Barack Obama.  'It’s hard to imagine anything that would derail his support,' he said, in comments reported by Axios. 'So if he wants to become the nominee in ‘24, I think he’s very likely to achieve that,' Romney said. 'He's the leader of the party, that's clear ... If he decides to run, he will be the nominee,' Romney said.  Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is one of the few Senate Republicans who has been willing to take on former...
    President Emmanuel Macron is the favourite in France's presidential runoff tomorrow - but has urged voters to head to the polls to avoid a Brexit-style shock.  A victory over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the election battle would make Macron the first French president in 20 years to win a second term.  All opinion polls in recent days converge toward a victory for the 44-year-old pro-European centrist - yet the margin over his nationalist rival appears uncertain, varying from 6 to 15 percentage points, depending on the poll.  Polls also forecast the potential of a record-high number of people who either vote blank or stay at home and don't vote at all in this second and final round. And, speaking in Figeac, an idyllic medieval village in south-west France, Macron warned that 'nothing is decided'.  Describing a potential win for Le Pen as a victory for 'hatred' and invitation to economic ruin, he also said: 'Think about what British citizens were saying a few hours before Brexit or (people) in the United States before Trump's election happened: 'I'm not...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has lashed out at MVP voter Hub Arkush who publicly criticized him and branded him a 'jerk' for missing a game after his 'misleading' claims of being 'immunized' against Covid-19. Rodgers says Chicago-based journalist Arkush - who holds an MVP vote - is  'a bum' who is targeting him because he remains unvaccinated. The 38-year-old signal caller is favored to win a second consecutive MVP award, but Arkush, executive editor of Pro Football Weekly, is not voting for him because the QB is 'punishing his team, his organization and the fans' with his refusal to get injected. In August, Rodgers cryptically claimed he was 'immunized,' leading many fans to assume he had received his COVID-19 vaccinations. However, he neglected to explain that he hadn't received a vaccine and was actually referring to a doctor-prescribed therapeutic treatment. Rodgers's vaccination status was revealed in early November when he tested positive for coronavirus and was subsequently required to quarantine for 10 days — the minimum amount of time an unvaccinated player is asked to quarantine, per league...

    Rebel Democratic Senator Joe Manchin tore into White House staff and his fellow Democrats on Monday, blaming them for his decision not to support President Joe Biden's signature Build Back Better legislation.  He accused Democrats of badgering him and beating 'the living crap' out of him as they tried to get his vote. And he said White House staff know the 'real reason' he said he wouldn't vote for Biden's $1.75 trillion package of social safety net programs. 'They know the real reason what happened. They won't tell you, and I'm not going to,' Manchin told West Virginia radio host Hoppy Kercheval about Biden's staff. Manchin and Democrats have been playing the blame game since he announced on Fox News Sunday that he would vote 'no' on the bill, which was seen as a death knell to the legislation. His comments came the same day the Huffington Post reported that Manchin, who opposed a provision in Biden's bill extending the child tax credit, told several of his fellow Democrats that he thought parents would waste the money on drugs instead, citing two sources...
    The committee that kick off Cuomo's impeachment trial says its investigation is 'nearing completion'  Impeachment is looking more inevitable for embattled NY Governor Andrew Cuomo as the committee which would kick off proceedings says it is nearing the end of its investigation, and 86 lawmakers say they would vote him out - ten more than the majority that's needed.  The Assembly Committee has sent a letter to Cuomo asking him to submit 'evidence' to plead his case, according to Newsday's Albany Bureau Chief.  The committee also told him its investigation is 'nearing completion'.  The committee is scheduled to meet on Monday to decide the next step which would be to formally launch impeachment proceedings.  In that scenario, the first step would be a vote among the 150 members of the NY Assembly and a simple majority of 76 is needed to move it on.  Eighty-six members have already told The Associated Press that they would vote to impeach him.  New York Speaker Carl Heastie, who would oversee impeachment proceedings against Cuomo, released this statement on Tuesday saying an...
    Liz Cheney has claimed some Republicans voted against impeaching Donald Trump because they were 'afraid for their lives' as she admitted she regrets voting for him in the 2020 election and warned he poses an 'ongoing danger' to America. Cheney told CNN's Jake Tapper Friday that several GOP members of Congress told her they feared for their safety in the lead-up to February's vote to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 Capitol riot.  The Wyoming Representative said she believes some fell in line with the wider party because of these concerns and insisted more lawmakers were in favor of his impeachment 'than are willing to say so'. Cheney was ousted from her role as House Republican leader this week amid a backlash from staunch Trump allies. The ex-number three in the party was one of just 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for his role in the violent insurrection. Since then, she has been a vocal critic of the former president and his efforts to overturn the result of the presidential election.  Liz Cheney told CNN Friday (above)...
    The husband suspected of killing missing Colorado mother Suzanne Morphew has now been charged with voter fraud after he submitted a mail-in ballot voting for President Trump in his wife's name five months after she vanished.  Barry Morphew, 53, was arrested last week on suspicion of murdering his 49-year-old wife after she vanished near their home in Poncha Springs in southern Colorado on Mother's Day in 2020. Morphew, who is already being held without bail, has now been charged with forgery over the mail-in ballot he allegedly submitted in his wife's name for last year's election.  A Chaffee County Clerk had alerted authorities in October last year that they had received a voting ballot in Suzanne's name even though she was missing.  The ballot was submitted five months after Suzanne, a mother of two adult daughters, went missing. Her body still has not been found.   Barry Morphew, 53, was arrested last week on suspicion of murdering his wife Suzanne Morphew, 49, after she vanished in Colorado in May 2020 Authorities say the ballot did not have Suzanne's signature on it but listed...
    ERC and the CUP They are finalizing a preliminary agreement for the investiture of Pere Aragonès (ERC) as president of the Generalitat, have announced the parties in separate statements this Sunday night, while Aragonès attends the Gaudí Awards as vice president, according to Europa Press. The Pre-agreement will be taken to the internal organs of the two parties to validate it: the CUP specifies that on Wednesday it will address it in telematic Parliamentary Open Assemblies and that on Thursday it will publish the result of the vote, one day before the scheduled date for the investiture debate. The ERC communiqué specifies the contents of the pre-agreement, where “the social and national axes of the next legislature are set.” INDEPENDENT PROCESS The two formations undertake to “prepare the necessary conditions throughout the legislature to carry out a new democratic onslaught, preferably in the form of a referendum“. ERC adds in its statement that this is the pre-agreement “while ERC’s commitment to a negotiation process is maintained, to democratically resolve the conflict.”
    The Franco-Israeli journalist and essayist Charles Enderlin deciphers for us the stakes of the election on March 23 in Israel. He fears the coming to power, alongside Netanyahu, of the racist religious extreme right. Interview PFor the fourth time in less than two years, Israeli voters are being called to the polls on Tuesday, March 23. We asked Charles Enderlin, a former correspondent for France 2 in Jerusalem and prolific essayist. For or against “Bibi” (Netanyahu), the fourth elections in two years that Israel will hold on March 23 seem to focus on this one question, why?
    Mitch McConnell tore into Donald Trump Saturday after voting with 42 other Republicans to acquit him of ‘incitement of insurrection’ – but then immediately argued the former president is solely to blame for Capitol storming.  'President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office,' McConnell said in Senate floor remarks. On the fifth and final day of the impeachment trial, the Republican Senate leader argued in a speech following the 57-43 vote that Congress does not hold the jurisdiction to criminally or civilly prosecute the former president. McConnell did, however, suggest that Trump should still somehow be held accountable for his words and actions. 'He didn't get away with anything, yet,' McConnell said. 'We have a criminal justice system in this country. We have civil litigation and former presidents are not immune from being accountable by either one.' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was livid as she crashed the House impeachment managers' press conference following the trial's conclusion – specifically she lashed out at McConnell and his remarks on the floor after the vote. 'Remember when...
    Donald Trump's closest confidante in the Senate has accused Democrats on the eve of Trump's second impeachment trial of having 'declared war on the presidency itself', as reports suggested the former president is confident of being acquitted and focused instead on seeking revenge against Republicans who he believes betrayed him. Lindsey Graham, the South Carolina senator who is in regular contact with Trump, insisted that Tuesday's trial was damaging to the country. He said that Trump's January 13 conviction in the House was unfair because the 74-year-old was not given time to defend himself. 'What Democrats have done is basically declared war on the presidency itself,' said Graham, speaking on Sean Hannity's Fox News show. Lindsey Graham on Monday told Fox News' Sean Hannity the impeachment trial was 'crap' Graham and Hannity joked that the trial, beginning Tuesday, was farcical and ridiculous Trump, who is currently at Mar-a-Lago, is said to be more focused on punishing his enemies 'The impeachment in the House took place without a hearing, without one witness being called, and without a lawyer...

    President Donald Trump returned to his golf course for a fifth day on Tuesday following two humiliating defeats on Capitol Hill where he suffered his first ever veto over ride and a vast majority of House Republicans rejected his call for $2,000 stimulus checks to Americans. Trump took to Twitter to rage about the blows to his presidency before he headed to the links.  He first called on the Senate to amend the defense bill after the House vetoed it. The upper chamber is scheduled to vote to override Trump's veto today.  The president vetoed the bill because he wanted a repeal of Section 230 - part of the Communications Act that gives tech companies a liability shield from lawsuits against content on their platforms - repealed. It has nothing to do with the defense bill, which funds the Pentagon and gives a pay raise to the troops.  The Senate is expect to follow the House and support the override. The defense bill is considered must-pass legislation and the Pentagon cannot function without it.   President Donald Trump returned to...
    Donald Trump called the Republican speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives twice over the last week, a report revealed Monday evening, as the president pleads with the swing state to help him overturn his loss there. House Speaker Bryan Cutler's office confirmed the two calls to The Washington Post, making Pennsylvania the third state Trump directly attempted to pressure into reversing the election results. 'The president said, 'I'm hearing about all these issues in Philadelphia, and these issues with your law,'' Cutler's spokesman Michael Straub said in describing the House speaker's two conversations with Trump. ''What can we do to fix it?'' Cutler told Trump on the call, according to Straub, that the Pennsylvania legislature doesn't have the power to overturn the state's already chosen electors. President Donald Trump called Pennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler (pictured) two separate times in the last week to urge him to overturn his loss by replacing electors for the state Cutler told Trump, according to a Monday report, that the Pennsylvania legislature doesn't have the power to overturn the state's chosen...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger called out President Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign for continuing to allege that the election was rigged, claiming that the president is now trying to throw him under the bus after the state was called for Joe Biden. “By all accounts, Georgia had a wildly successful and smooth election,” wrote Raffensperger in a Wednesday op-ed for USA Today. “This should be something for Georgians to celebrate, whether their favored presidential candidate won or lost. For those wondering, mine lost — my family voted for him, donated to him, and are now being thrown under the bus by him.” Raffensperger went on to say that in the days after the election, “a losing presidential campaign refused to accept the facts,” and, “Those who had so long been beneficiaries of the electoral process sought to tear it apart at its very foundations.” “In times of uncertainty, when the integrity of our political system is most at risk, the integrity of our politicians is paramount,” he concluded. “In times like these, we need leaders of integrity...
    Lil Pump reportedly did not vote for Donald Trump in last week's presidential election, despite the fact he enthusiastically endorsed him and vowed to move to Colombia if Joe Biden became Commander-in-chief.  According to The Smoking Gun, the 20-year-old 'Gucci Gang' rapper could not have cast a ballot for Trump because he is not registered to vote.  The publication reports that Lil Pump - whose real name is Gazzy Garcia - cannot be found on voter registration records in his home state of Florida.  Additionally, the Miami-based star is not present on any rolls associated  specifically with the Miami-Dade County Elections Department.  An official told The Smoking Gun that the county’s voter registration records are up-to-date, meaning its not possible Lil Pump enrolled last minute.  According to The Smoking Gun, Lil Pump did not vote for Donald Trump in last week's presidential election, despite the fact he enthusiastically endorsed him and vowed to move to Colombia if Joe Biden became Commander-in-chief All for show?

    Philadelphia's lone Republican city commissioner has described as 'deranged' the accusations of voter fraud being made by the White House, as he revealed his staff had been receiving death threats as Donald Trump attacks their integrity. Al Schmidt, one of three city commissioners charged with overseeing elections, told 60 Minutes that he was shocked at the accusations made against him and his team.

    NFL legend Herschel Walker has accused James Clyburn of taking Trump 'out of context' after the House Majority Whip slammed the President for calling an ex White House aide 'a dog'.  Clyburn appeared on FoxNews on Sunday, where he expressed his disbelief that a black man could vote for Trump after he appeared to call former Obama aide Omarosa Manigault Newman 'a dog'.  He added that he would have to 'pray' for the black men voting for Trump.  Early this morning Walker tweeted a video of himself in which he said: 'I'm going to pray for you as well because you took the president a little bit out of context, which is okay because the Democrats have been doing that for a long time just to get a vote and I think that's what you're doing right now.'  In 2018, Trump was criticized for a tweet in which he appeared to call the former White House aide a 'dog' and a 'crazed, crying lowlife' after she released a tell-all book about the White House.  House Majority Whip James Clyburn, a...
    Chris Cuomo has been a very vocal critic of President Donald Trump, but at the end of Thursday’s episode of Cuomo Prime Time, the CNN host took the unusual step of urging the president’s supporters to get out to the polls and vote for him – but to wear a mask and not “make yourself sick to make a point.” Speaking directly to Trump supporters in the show’s final segment, Cuomo said that the idea of “fighting with each other of the reality of the pandemic is literally, just the worst thing we can be doing.” Cuomo said that it would be “hypocrisy” for him to not say this to Trump voters, and then encouraged them to exercise their right to vote, and get out and cast their ballots for him. “OK? Wear the mask and vote for Trump,” Cuomo said. “Please, do not make yourself sick to make a point. We are not rounding the corner. It is not going away. The spikes aren’t gone. Those are all lies.” As the lates daily update of the Covid Tracking Project from Thursday showed, the seven-day...
    In March of 2016, I wrote that I would likely support Donald Trump because he was the only presidential candidate speaking for working-class Americans. I also viewed the contempt for Trump by the media and elite of both parties as contempt for his supporters as well. As the campaign wore on, that contempt became an acceptable form of bigotry, as reflected in Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” smear at a fundraiser. On Election Day, I put aside concerns about whether Trump was ready and voted for him. My hope was that enough people agreed the nation desperately needed a course correction on policies and leadership, and that Trump, despite his background and lack of experience, could rise to the occasion. Four years later, everything has changed, not all of it for the better. Trump shook Washington to its core and remade the Republican Party, but the nation’s fault lines make the divisions of four years ago seem almost quaint. One thing that won’t change is my vote. In fact, the 2020 choice is much easier. There are two main reasons...

    Look, I’m voting for Joe Biden. I get why white racists and millionaires—and people who stand at the intersection of those two groups—are all-in for Donald Trump, but for the rest of us, self-preservation dictates that Biden is the better choice. Thursday night's dueling presidential town halls, which featured a belligerent Trump and a comparatively contemplative Biden, drove that all the way home. If I believed, at this late stage, that “undecided voters” were real, and not people with made-up minds in desperate need of attention, I cannot imagine how the contrast could have been any starker or the decision clearer. That said, tonight’s event also reaffirmed how desperately we will need to hold Biden’s feet to the fire if he wins this thing. Again and again, the former Vice President’s answers highlighted political points where he not only needs to be shoved, hard, leftward, but also just to do better. I literally winced when Biden responded to a question about what he would say, besides “you ain’t Black,” to “young Black voters who see voting for you as further...

    Anita Hill pledged to work with Democratic nominee Joe Biden if he's elected president to help victims of sexual harassment, gender violence, and discrimination. "Notwithstanding all of his limitations in the past and the mistakes that he made in the past, notwithstanding those — at this point, between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, I think Joe Biden is the person who should be elected in November," Hill told CNN. Hill and Biden have shared a contentious history, dating back to when she accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment almost 30 years ago. In 1991, Biden served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee overseeing the confirmation hearing of Thomas. Hill, a key witness, testified that Thomas sexually harassed her when they worked together at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Thomas denied the allegations. Hill, who is now a professor at Brandeis University, said her testimony forever altered her motivation to work toward change for victims. "One of the impacts of 1991 was my desire not to really work with the government in any way," Hill said. "I...
    Donald Trump's children begged him to drop out of the 2016 presidential race after he made disparaging remarks about Hispanics during a speech announcing his candidacy, disgraced fixer and personal lawyer Michael Cohen's new book claims.   In the book, Disloyal: A Memoir, Cohen recounts how Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka came to his office after their father's campaign announcement in 2015, during which he referred to people coming to the US from Mexico as drug dealers, rapists and murderers.  Cohen claims they asked him to convince their father to drop out of the race, arguing his rhetoric was 'killing the company'. But, Trump was unconcerned with any harm to his businesses, Cohen says, quoting the future president as saying: 'Plus, I will never get the Hispanic vote. 'Like the blacks, they're too stupid to vote for Trump. They're not my people.' That incident was one of many examples of Trump's alleged racism laid out in Cohen's book, an advance copy of which was obtained by the Washington Post ahead of its publication on Tuesday.  Donald Trump said Hispanics...

    Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III unleashed a blistering tweetstorm on President Donald Trump on Friday night, condemning him — without ever naming him — for the “utter and vulgar contempt” he has reportedly shown to the military and urging Americans to “vote him out.” Sullenberger, a former Air Force fighter pilot and captain, became a worldwide celebrity for his “Miracle on the Hudson” emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009. He retired in 2010 after 30 years as a commercial pilot. Earlier this year, Sullenberger joined Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at a Nevada caucus rally, endorsing his 2020 run. On Friday night, the famous pilot and safety advocate laid out his own meticulous case against Trump, clearly alluding to the bombshell report from The Atlantic — since confirmed by three other news outlets — that claims Trump insulted American war dead and veterans are “suckers” and “losers.” And he began with some background on his own family’s history of military service. 1/9 I am a veteran. I volunteered for military service during wartime. So did my...
    Country music star Kacey Musgraves said President Trump’s supporters are committing “an act of violence” against the gay and lesbian community if they vote for him. “If you love an LGBTQ+ person and you’re planning on voting for Donald Trump in November, that’s an act of violence against them,” she tweeted on Friday.

    Katie Paris, the founder of Red Wine and Blue, poses as part of the 'housewife challenge.' Katie Paris Women in US suburbs are rallying against President Donald Trump's re-election efforts despite his claims that "suburban housewives" will be voting for him. But Trump's image of voters in the suburbs is incredibly outdated, experts and women in the suburbs told Insider.  Suburban women, including those who voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, told Insider how they are mobilizing collectively to remove a president they said goes against their values. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Four years ago, Erin Rosiello, a resident of the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio, voted for Donald Trump. "But within weeks I was so sorry for my decision and have been kicking myself ever since," Rosiello told Insider.  In 2016, Rosiello was trying to start her own business and said she was convinced that the US needed "somebody with a good business sense" instead of a "lifelong politician" running the country.

    Former President Barack Obama will deliver a harsh assessment of President Donald Trump from the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia Wednesday night.    There, he'll vouch for his 'friend' and 'brother,' former Vice President Joe Biden, while casting President Donald Trump as a man who has never taken his job seriously or done it well.   'He’s shown no interest in putting in the work, no interest in finding common ground, no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends,' Obama will say in remarks to the virtual Democratic National Convention. 'No interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves.'  President Barack Obama will address the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night from Philadelphia where he will make a personal plea to Americans to vote for his former vice president, Joe Biden, and his running mate, Sen.

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed confidence he'd win the key voting bloc of suburban women in the November election, a claim coming after rival Joe Biden named a female running mate.  'The 'suburban housewife' will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!,' the president wrote on Twitter. Republicans have focused their efforts on courting suburban women in recent elections, dubbing them everything from 'soccer moms' to 'security moms' to 'Walmart moms.'  Trump has appealed to that voting bloc through fear mongering and racist language, using the housing issue to make his point. He's argued he will keep 'low income housing' out of such areas - a claim that has been called racist as it's interpreted as keeping minorities out of the suburbs. And 'suburban housewife' is seen as reference to white women. President Donald Trump claimed he would win 'suburban housewives' - an influential voting bloc he has...
    In a call-back to simpler times—before the unprecedented global pandemic and nationwide civil unrest over the extrajudicial killings of Black Americans—supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden have co-opted a notorious joke made by President Trump four years ago on the campaign trail. The year was 2016, and there were just two weeks until the Iowa caucuses. Reality-TV star and real-estate mogul Donald Trump was the Republican frontrunner, and he was, well, confident about his chances. “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK?” Trump said, mimicking firing a gun with his fingers, at a campaign stop in Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.” Afterward, Trump tweeted: “My speech was very well received. Truly great people! Packed house—overflow!” “His audiences love it,” NPR reporter Don Gonyea wrote at the time: “They say, ‘Yeah, sometimes he makes me cringe, but I still like him and I still think he’s the right thing for America.’” But now Biden supporters are co-opting the joke on Twitter, for their own amusement, even jokingly offering to...
    Concern is rising over election fraud in Vladimir Putin's controversial constitutional referendum which would allow him to rule Russia until the age of 83 in 2036. Pictures show Russians voting in bizarre makeshift polling stations on tree stumps, in car boots, at children's playgrounds and on park benches as the poll goes ahead during the pandemic. Approval in the vote that concludes July 1 will allow Putin to seek two more six-year terms after his current one ends in 2024.  His approval ratings are at an all-time low as Russia's economy reels under the impact of the coronavirus epidemic and the slump in oil prices.  His popularity rating at 59 per cent is the lowest since he became president in 2000. However, there is little chance that the referendum could go against him.  Vladimir Putin's approval ratings are at an all-time low - but he is expected to win a referendum to keep him in power until 2036 Reports say people have been able to vote twice - online and using a normal ballot.  There are worrying claims of mass coercion of...
    Madison Cawthorn, the Republican nominee for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he promised President Donald Trump to win millennial voters’ support for the president’s reelection bid. The 24-year-old Cawthorn defeated Lynda Bennett, 62, in the district’s Republican primary on Tuesday to fill a seat vacated by Mark Meadows. He won 65.9 percent of GOP primary voters against Bennett’s 34.1 percent. Bennett received endorsements from Trump, Meadows, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the House Freedom Fund, the Senate Conservative Fund, American Conservative Union, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Citizens United. Trump called Cawthorn on Tuesday, congratulating the latter on his victory. “I had a great conversation with President Trump last night,” Cawthorn recalled on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour and special guest host Dylan Gwinn. “I’ll tell you that was probably one of the coolest phone calls I’ve ever gotten. It was from a switchboard director on Air Force One who then connected me [to] the President of the United States. When I was getting to talk to him, I...
    Bill Maher spoke with John Bolton Friday night over his new book and asked how he could say all these things warning how of the serious risks of President Donald Trump getting another term, yet rule out voting for the only viable option against him. Maher started out by talking with Bolton about the president’s initial reaction to the coronavirus being influenced by his feelings about China and the economy. They also talked about foreign interference into U.S. elections before Maher brought up the choice voters face in November: “You say coddling of Kim made you ill… Siding with Putin at Helsinki. Abandoning the Kurds. You called the Ukrainian thing that got him impeached a ‘drug deal.’ You didn’t want any part of that. You were there when he said to Xi of China, people are talking about maybe repealing that law that says I can’t only have two terms. And yet you won’t vote for Biden… How could Biden be worse? What could the Democrat be that you think this list could be surpassed by?” Bolton said that’s...

    John Bolton slammed Democrats for conducting a partisan impeachment, saying they were 'almost as bad and somewhat equivalent to' President Trump. In an interview with ABC News, Bolton defended his decision not to testify before Congress during the impeachment proceedings.  He writes in his new book that the Democratic-led House of Representatives committed malpractice by tailoring impeachment exclusively to Ukraine. The House impeached the president after it was alleged that Trump sought to withhold aid from Ukraine unless the government in Kyiv investigated Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. As Barack Obama's vice president, Biden was in charge of US policy toward Ukraine. The president and his supporters allege that Hunter Biden obtained a position on the board of a Ukrainian energy firm because of his father's standing.  Former National Security Adviser John Bolton (left) defended his decision not to testify before Congress during impeachment proceedings, saying that the Democrats were 'almost as bad as and somewhat equivalent to' President Trump (right) Bolton writes in his new book that the Democratic-led House of Representatives committed malpractice by...
    MOSCOW, June 21 (Reuters) – Vladimir Putin is considering running for a new term as Russia’s president if voters approve constitutional changes that would enable him to do so, Russian news agencies quoted him as saying in an interview on Sunday. Russia will hold a nationwide vote from June 25 to July 1 on proposed changes to the constitution, including an amendment that would allow Putin to seek two more six-year terms as president when his current mandate ends in 2024. Opponents say the reforms are designed to allow Putin to keep power until 2036 and amount to a constitutional coup. The Kremlin says they are needed to strengthen the role of parliament and improve social policy and public administration. “I do not rule out the possibility of running for office, if this (option) comes up in the constitution. We’ll see,” Putin was quoted as saying in an interview with state TV that was shown in Russia’s far east before airing in western Russia. “I have not decided anything for myself yet.” The changes that Russians will vote on, already...

    Washington — Colin Powell, the former secretary of state under President George W. Bush, announced he will vote for Joe Biden over President Trump in November, saying the president "has drifted away" from the Constitution and "lies all the time." "I certainly cannot, in any way, support President Trump this year," Powell said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "I'm very close to Joe Biden on a social matter and on a political matter. I've worked with him for 35, 40 years, and he is now the candidate, and I will be voting for him." Powell's support for Biden, who clinched the Democratic presidential nomination on Friday, marks a continuation of his drift from the Republican Party. The retired four-star general and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff endorsed Hillary Clinton over Mr. Trump in 2016, and voted for President Barack Obama in 2012. He endorsed Mr. Obama over Senator John McCain, the Republican nominee, at a pivotal moment in the 2008 campaign. On Sunday, Powell criticized the president for his response to nationwide protests over...
