    A former congressional staffer filed a lawsuit last week saying she was raped by an employee at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and when she said she was taking legal action against the foundation she was fired by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. The employee, who is suing as a Jane Doe plaintiff, is seeking at least $75,000 in damages for derailing her career and for emotional duress. She says she was raped in 2015 by the coordinator of her intern program at the foundation, and says there was DNA and text messages and phone calls that proved the encounter happened....

    Rep. Ed Case apologized Wednesday after he claimed at an event for Asian American and Pacific Islander voters that he’s an “Asian trapped in a white body.” Mr. Case, a Hawaii Democrat, sparked a social media backlash over the reported comment he made Tuesday at a Washington event billed as a “celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander members of the 116th Congress.” According to National Journal fellow Nicholas Wu, Mr. Case, who represents a majority Asian district in Honolulu, declared at the event, “I’m an Asian trapped in a white body.”

    Chelsea Clinton has established a reputation for defending others — including Barron Trump — from cyberbullies. Now she’s sticking up for her own family. The former first daughter took the time to respond to a Twitter commenter trolling her over the debunked Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which plagued her mother’s 2016 presidential campaign. (To recap: Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, had his emails hacked, prompting speculation that they contained coded messages about an alleged child sex ring at a Washington, D.C., pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong. Despite being discredited, the rumors resulted in death threats, an incident with an armed man...
  • Some Federal agency workers given unemployment forms prior to shutdown

    Federal government employee | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    One agency that I know of gave workers unemployment forms prior to the shutdown. Also, the employee said on a past shutdown, they got unemployment pay AND got back pay without having to pay back the unemployment pay. Where is the media to investigate this? More than likely several Federal agencies are doing this. Probably no one is going with zero pay. The Democrats and the media are fabricating lies.
  • Iowa soybean farmer on shutdown: "It's not worth putting up the wall to put us in this situation"

    01/11/2019 1:24:57 PM PST · by greymattr · 88 replies
    Polk City, Iowa – Aaron Lehman is not a federal employee. He's an Iowa farmer. But the government shutdown has put him in a real bind. Lehman has watched the price of his soybeans drop 20 percent since last summer when the Trump administration got into a fight over trade with China, reports CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds. "So the price drop off on soybeans together with the government shutdown is like a double whammy," Reynolds said. "It really is. It got us coming and going," Lehman said, adding it "absolutely" adds another layer of uncertainty. "We rely on our...

    The Democratic lawmaker — who has represented parts of the Bronx and Westchester County for three decades — added that there “wasn’t a great clamor” from lawmakers to keep the terrorism panel, which was formed after the Sept. 11th attacks. Instead, he said, his committee will focus on what Trump promised Russian President Vladimir Putin during their private meeting last year — and the president’s business ties to Russia and Middle East countries.

  • Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Illegal Immigrants ‘More American’ Than Trump Supporters

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address Tuesday evening, claiming illegal immigrants “act more American” than proponents of strong border security. In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Ocasio-Cortez accused President Trump of holding the paychecks of furloughed government workers “hostage” to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, a proposal the self-avowed Democrat-socialist described as a “campaign fantasy.” “In the actual address, there was falsehood after falsehood and we have to make sure that we get our facts straight. Everyday immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than native-born Americans,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And...

    For the second time in two years, Los Angeles detectives have found a man dead inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a political activist who rose to national prominence in the late 1980s for his effort to recall the governor of Arizona, the authorities said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a 911 call shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday from a person who claimed that a man inside a West Hollywood apartment had stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated. When emergency responders arrived at the residence, a second-floor unit on Laurel Avenue, they declared the...

    A Texas lawmaker was released from a Texas jail at 11:34 p.m.Thursday after serving only four months of a 12-month jail sentence. Rep. Ron Reynolds, a Missouri City Democrat, was convicted of five counts of barratry in 2015 and sentenced to one year in jail. Reynolds won re-election to the Texas House of Representatives in November to represent District 27. He was unopposed in that race, but still managed to gather 47,305 votes. Reynolds was booked into the county jail on Sept. 7 and was supposed to serve a year-long sentence... Since the convictions were misdemeanors, Reynolds did not have...

    I rarely make predictions -- whether of election results or anything else. My policy has always been to say what I believe should be done, not what will be done. I am making an exception with regard to America in 2019. 2019 will be a dark year in America. Thanks to the left's control of the House of Representatives and the news media, Americans will be kept in a fevered state throughout 2019 -- with innumerable hearings, exposes, criminal investigations and possible indictments of those around the president and the president himself. Truth will not be the point. Defamation will....

    Happy New Year to all of my most favorite deplorables!No, I didn’t make it till midnight, but then I barely remember the last New Year’s Eve I did. In addition to being tired around 10:30 or so I also had zero interest in watching any of the network buffoons assembled on various rooftops and concrete canyons of New York City waiting on the drop of a crystal ball. Nevertheless, 2018 was a pretty awesome year. Expect more of the same from 2019. Here is my primary prediction for the coming year: Dozens of dolts will announce they’re running as the...

    Former Clinton adviser Doug Schoen agreed with outgoing Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill's (Mo.) recent criticism of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, arguing the soon-to-be-freshman lawmaker should not be the new face of the party. **SNIP** Responding on "The Five," Schoen said that he'd prefer if the 29-year-old Bronx native would "just go away" because of her far-left positions, emphasizing Democrats need to win over moderate voters to defeat President Trump in 2020. "I hope Nancy Pelosi gets to her and says she'd do better for herself to be silent for a while, because she is not the face or the voice of the...

    Dr. Hurd ^ | 22DEC18 | Dr, Hurd
    Here we go again with another partial government shutdown. The fact that “government shutdowns” are so regular, and annoying to some — but never a catastrophe — tells you something. The fact that the vast majority of the federal government is “nonessential” enough that the vast majority of Americans can get by just fine without it tells you something. Basically, it’s national security and defense — including border protection, by the way — that are considered essential. Gee, that’s interesting. That’s basically what the U.S. Constitution mandates for the federal government. Everything else was left to “the people” and the...

    Democrats are lining up to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.” The proposal could be the largest expansion of government since the Great Society or New Deal. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan could cost tens of trillions of dollars. Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades. As it stands, the “Green New Deal” is more aspirational than actual policy. Indeed, it takes its name from the New Deal of the 1930s, and its main backer, incoming Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, compared...

It was about about one month after SHTF started, family stayed inside, did not know what to do, their apartment building was one of the few that gangs did not visit yet. They heard screams and pistol shots, always bad signs, then loud curses, and sound of fighting. Anyway, there was no too much time to do anything smart, while gang get to their floor, they managed to hide girl in one of the closets, and...

    After reading a couple of articles about magazines/weapon news from New Jersey – actually, after reading a lot of comments from people on that news-  I have the urge to write this article. It is written from the survivalist point of view. There is, of course, the possible danger to get comments like “What the hell do you know Selco? You are not American, shut up!” Because I am going to be “poking” a few sacred cows here. So… Right now, this is not the rise of communism. “Stalin is coming.” I do not think this all news is about...
