Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called long-shot Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard a “favorite of the Russians” this week, and implied that the Russian government was “grooming” her for a third party run to sabotage the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.
“I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said on Campaign HQ’s podcast, according to CNN. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
Hunter Biden received over $700,000 from a New York-based capital management company that held equity in a Chinese investment firm with close ties to the Bank of China, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of Hunter Biden’s Chinese, Ukrainian and American business dealings has found.
And despite the deluge of media reports saying Hunter Biden received $50,000 a month for his work on the board of the Ukranian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, the records tell a much different story.
Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, did not receive any compensation directly from Burisma, according to available records. The oft-cited $50,000 a month figure is actually based on payments he received from a New York-based company called Rosemont Seneca Bohai, which was owned and controlled by his longtime business partner, Devon Archer.
Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke held his own rally Thursday to counter President Donald Trump’s Dallas event — and photos suggested he would face a much smaller crowd.
Dallas-Fort Worth CBS reporter Caroline Vandergriff posted a photo of O’Rourke’s fans beginning to gather outside the 6,350-seat Theatre at Grand Prairie, just a few hours before it was scheduled to start.
Vandergriff had posted a time-lapse video of the line for Trump’s rally in downtown Dallas some 2o hours earlier — over a full day prior to the event’s start time.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D., N.Y.) campaign committee dished out more than $200,000 during the third quarter to Middle Seat Consulting, a firm established by a cofounder of Justice Democrats, the far-left group that propelled the freshman Democrat into office.
Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign hauled in $1.4 million in contributions and reported $924,349.64 in operating expenditures between July 1 and Sept. 30, its filings show. Middle Seat Consulting, a firm that “supports campaigns, organizations, and causes fighting for racial justice, climate action, immigrant rights, intersectional feminism, economic justice, and more,” was paid $210,364.37 by the freshman representative’s committee during this time for email fundraising, digital ad commission, list rentals, and strategy. The disbursements are a major increase from the combined $89,000 it gave to Middle Seat during the first and second quarters. Ocasio-Cortez’s committee has now cut the group checks totaling $300,000 this year. Middle Seat is the campaign’s highest paid vendor.
Middle Seat’s leadership includes the same cast of characters as several other Ocasio-Cortez-linked PACs and groups, including those that have come under scrutiny by watchdogs.
Style mag GQ is trying to usher in the next wave of gender queer apparel and cosmetic choices, giving readers a full spread about how masculinity isn’t that important and the concept of a man is pretty much just a fugazi anyway. It’s just that … you’re a men’s magazine, guys.
The outlet published an October 15 article breaking down traditional concepts of manhood, taking great pains to detail just how authoritarian capitalist society has manipulated us sheeple with this odious social construct. Oh, we are in for a treat!
It’s all part of GQ’s “New Masculinity Issue,” which goes to show that if there was ever one priority in the work of a male-oriented magazine, it’s about rhetorically castrating your entire target demographic. GQ’s testicle-shriveling piece consisted of quotes about how “masculinity is morphing and modernizing” from “18 influential people,” some of whom are women. Sounds convincing, especially when the piece comes coupled with a photo of an obvious female with nail polish wearing a man’s plaid suit. Yeah, GQ has betrayed its readers.
BIDEN: “And the reason it got done was because of a woman I asked to be on the Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein. She’s the reason we finally got the assault weapons ban, eliminating magazines with multiple rounds.”
It was special investigator John Durham who acquired two BlackBerrys used by Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor who jumped-started the FBI’s long Russia probe into President Trump’s campaign.
Sidney Powell, attorney for retired Army Lt. General Michael Flynn, filed a court motion on Monday disclosing the phones’ existence while tying them to Western intelligence.
She told The Washington Times on Thursday that she has confirmed that it was Mr. Durham’s office who obtained them.
William Barr assigned Mr. Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, the mission of finding out the origins of the FBI’s counter-intelligence investigation known as Crossfire Hurricane. She told the Times that a “source,” whom she declined to identify, told her about the BlackBerrys.
One of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) top economic advisers acknowledged Wednesday that the senator doesn’t have a sufficient tax plan to pay for her proposed single-payer health care system.
“Her taxes as they currently exist are not enough yet to cover fully replacing health insurance,” University of California, Berkeley economics professor Emmanuel Saez, who helped develop Warren’s “wealth tax” proposal, told Bloomberg News.
Warren’s campaign claims to have proposed about $7.3 trillion in tax increases, enough to pay for an agenda it projects will cost about $6 trillion. However, with Medicare for All costing more than $3 trillion a year, experts across the spectrum told Bloomberg the math means she would have to raise middle-class tax rates as well.
“She is offering a Medicare for All plan and not offering even close to enough to pay for it,” the Tax Foundation’s Kyle Pomerleau told Bloomberg. “One place she hasn’t gone yet is raising the existing individual income tax for top earners.”
ANKARA (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Thursday he had reached a deal with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan for a ceasefire in northern Syria to end an eight-day-old Turkish offensive against Kurdish-led forces.
Speaking after crisis talks with Erdogan in Ankara, Pence said that under the deal all military operations would be paused to allow a pullback of Kurdish YPG militia over a 120-hour period. The Turkish military operation would end once that withdrawal was complete, Pence told a news conference.
“Today the United States and Turkey have agreed to a ceasefire in Syria,” Pence told a news conference after more than four hours of talks at the presidential palace in Ankara.
“The Turkish side will pause Operation Peace Spring in order to allow for the withdrawal of YPG forces from the safe zone for 120 hours,” Pence said. “All military operations under Operation Peace Spring will be paused, and Operation Peace Spring will be halted entirely on completion of the withdrawal.”
Pence said U.S. forces in the region had already begun to facilitate a safe disengagement of YPG units.
Speaker Pelosi isn’t refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes. They all failed. Miserably.
In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment.
In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi’s leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren’t even close.
All three votes came up as “privileged resolutions.” Under Congressional rules, members can vote to table the resolution or to proceed. To affirmatively table a privileged resolution kills it, meaning the resolution has failed.
Though the first two impeachment votes came up during the Republican majority, the votes to reject or table them were indisputably bipartisan.
Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Thursday reportedly told President Donald Trump that he will be resigning after months of speculation.
According to Bloomberg, Perry contacted Trump and told him he plans to resign. Perry is one of the longest-serving members of Trump’s cabinet. The news comes after reports in early October that Perry is planning to step down by the end of 2019.
Tim will have more on Project Veritas latest video where staffers of CNN are seen complaining about how the network has become and left-wing cesspool. Okay—maybe that’s a stretch, but they’re not happy with the liberal tilt the network has taken. It is one of the most prolific and visible anti-Trump networks out there. We all know this, but PV was able to get an insider to speak with CNN employees who confirmed our suspicions about the network. They’re liberal. They hate Trump. And President Jeff Zucker personally intervenes during interviews with members of the Trump administration in the hopes of catching them tripping up live on air. The Trump impeachment circus is front and center, and all of this just adds credence to the chant “CNN sucks.” And if that’s not indicative of how the liberal media has become in the Trump era, PV’s CNN insider, Cary Poarch, caught what they all probably feel about the president during his investigation. Gerald Sisnette, Field Production Supervisor at CNN, said he hoped Trump dies soon (via Project Veritas):
Acosta could be the biggest douche on CNN, and that’s not easy.
MULVANEY: “Elections do have consequences and they should. Your foreign policy is going to change. Obama did it in one way and we’re doing it a different way and there’s no problem with that.”
ACOSTA: “What about the Bidens though, Mr. Mulvaney? Does that come into consideration when —“
MULVANEY: “I’m sorry, I don’t know your name, but he’s being very rude. So you go ahead and ask your question.”
