Former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Friday that the thing he was most proud of about the Obama administration was that there was "not one single whisper of scandal."
"The thing I'm proudest of is we, coincidentally, we were each in a different part of the country and we were each talking to groups of people that were being televised. On the same day, purely coincidentally, we were asked what are you proudest of from…

Somerset County resident Terry Beck, one of three women behind the grassroots effort, told the Washington Free Beacon…

The Supreme Court’s conservative majority appears to be taking President Trump’s side on his administration’s plan to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Liberals went berserk after Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross announced last year that the 2020 census will include a question on citizenship.
As expected, the Democrats and several ultra liberal advocacy groups aren’t taking this imminent victory for the President well.

Tuesday at the “Time 100 Summit,” during a Q&A session in New York, Hillary Clinton said it was clear in Robert Mueller‘s report impeachment of President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice.
Clinton said, “I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted. But because of the rule in the Justice Department that you can’t indict a sitting president, the whole matter of obstruction was very…

In an interview about artificial intelligence and transhumanism conducted by the Singularity Weblog, philosopher Peter Singer let it slip that he did not particularly love animals. He also revealed that, while mostly vegan, he did not think it was that big a deal if he did occasionally consume animal products, As such, given that he does not think human beings are to be valued above animals, does that mean he doesn’t have any problem with…Continue

I thought Democrats were really concerned about “voter suppression?”
I guess you can’t suppress people’s votes if you don’t give them the choice in the first place. Illinois is trying that out by passing a new law that forbids Trump from being on the 2020 ballot unless he releases five years of tax returns.
Lawmakers in Illinois have advanced legislation that would require President Trump to release five years of his tax returns in order to appear on the state’s 2020 presidential…Continue

Prior to joining the Clintons in Washington, Foster had been a partner at Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he had been a colleague and a friend of Hillary Clinton’s.
Ken Starr spoke to former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal writer Ronald…

We’ve seen it in New Mexico already, and now we’re seeing it in Colorado. Local counties are declaring themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries and refusing to enforce statewide gun laws that violate due process and make a joke out of the Constitution. In remarks to CNN this week, Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams said that even if the Colorado legislature passes a new “red flag” bill, he won’t have his deputies enforce the law.
“It’s a matter of doing what’s right,” he told the network.…

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour called "lock her up" chants by Donald Trump supporters "hate speech" in a new interview and asked James Comey if he wished he had "shut down that language" in his capacity as FBI Director at the time.
Amanpour recounted the frequent chants at Trump 2016 campaign rallies about imprisoning Hillary Clinton for her perceived crimes and wondered if they should have been legal, but Comey responded it was not the role of government officials…
