President Donald Trump fired back at CNN’s Jim Acosta as he was taking questions after announcing a national emergency at the United States-Mexico border on Friday, telling him to ask those who have lost loved […]
Abilio Acosta has state before that he’s never met an angel mom, as if they don’t exist. Well, here’s your chance, “Jim”! Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know any angel mom’s either, because she hides from them when they come to visit her in her office.
Sooo, if we did not have illegal immigrants in the country, we would not have had 59 dead in Las Vegas, 26 at Sandy Hook, 17 at Parkland, 11 at Pittsburgh synagogue, 9 at Charleston SC church, 27 at Sutherland TX church??? How is an “Angel mom” pain different than a Sandy Hook or Parkland parent’s grief?
Lawmakers in Congress plan to re-introduce a bipartisan legislation aimed at ending expensive, deadly, and potentially illegal dog experiments at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) — and several prominent c […]
Shocking footage from President Donald Trump’s first 2020 campaign rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday night shows one of his supporters shoving a BBC cameraman in, what a reporter at the outlet called, a “shameful […]
President Donald Trump recently pledged that the United States would build a “human wall” if necessary to secure our borders, and it looks like some of his supporters are taking his words to heart ahead of his El […]
I basically make about $6,000-$8,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it……… http://www.Pro49.com
Eight million refugees expected out of Venezuela. Where do you think they will want to go?
So far they’ve flooded Colombia, Guyana, and Brazil as well as nearby Caribbean islands. Some may WANT to come here eventually, but I think that for now just getting out of their socialist-ruined shithole, err, Venezuela is their primary goal.
There is very little socialism going on in Venezuela. Get over it.
The US needs to rethink the sanctions which made matters much worse than they were before they were implemented. WE made it worse.
You may be right. It’s much closer to communism a la Cuba. Socialism is just a convenient cover.
FYI, Maduro trained in Cuba as a radical labor organizer. Chavez envisioned himself as becoming the new figurehead of Communism/Leftism in Latin America after the Castos died.
Cuba is one of the very few Latin American countries to maintain ties wih Maduro AND the country has thousand of Cuban security operatives performing internal policing and spying on the opposition.
They didn’t get far with socialism when you get down to the nitty-gritty, though. Having a 60/40 split ownership of oil companies isn’t carrying it that far.
Guaido got HIS training from the CIA, so don’t go too far down the wrong road here.
The country is a mess and we played our part in exacerbating that mess.
President Donald Trump got a kick out of Senator Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) snow-filled announcement that she’s running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, but it looks like some other Republicans […]
Apparently those GOP Senators heaping praise on Sen. Klobuchar are not up to speed on her nasty and mean disposition or her uncontrollable temper. Perhap they should engage brain before opening mouth.
…or maybe they are pasting a big “Kick Me” on her. She still has to primary as a Democrat.
Despite getting some backlash from his fellow Democrats, Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) has no regrets about standing to applaud President Donald Trump’s call to end late-term abortion during his State of the Union […]
CNN’s “State of the Union” panel got heated on Sunday after Rep. Nanette Barragán (D-Calif.) appeared to try to link President Donald Trump to Virginia’s current political mess, and CNN commentator Nina Turner d […]
Interesting. The Dims see racism, sexism, and hate everywhere in the country but not in their own party. q.v. Northam, Fairfax, Herring. They also ignore the resurrection of old hates like anti-Catholicism and anti-Semitism. q.v. Feinstein, Hirono, Tlaib, Omar, etc.
Did you not watch the video and just read the article quote with the stupid part of what the Rep said?
Seconds before she tried to twist it on the President, she said that the three top Democrats need to resign and understanding that it will turn the state over to Republican control because “this is about doing what’s right.”
Im glad she brought up President Trump though – strictly because it was satisying to watch Nina Turner put that smack down on that stupid.
TL; DNW. Kudos to Ms. Turner if that was the case.
Sorry, I’m not as hip on internet slang and I’m drawing a complete blank.
What does TL mean? I am assuming DNW stands for Did Not Watch.
Too long. Did not watch. I rarely watch videos here as my time is limited by circumstances and bugginess. When I CAN log on.
Oh, well this video told the whole story where the article did not. I have started watching the videos because there is a theme with leaving out details that make the other side look even remotely reasonable.
I’ll put it on my do-this list.
Top priority, of course. 😉
An adviser for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is admitting he falsely claimed that an official document for her proposed Green New Deal did not include a guarantee of economic security for people […]
On Friday, President Donald Trump joined the nation in mourning the loss of America’s longest-serving congressman, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), who passed away on Thursday night.

Term limits seem more and more reasonable every day.
Resolve the issue of money in politics and it won’t matter so much. Really.
Corruption is much more prevalent, corrosive and dangerous than a long tenure because, without it, it will be much more likely that the Congressperson will be elected legitimately and will work for the voters, not the donors.
Rocky, a corrupt politician’s tenure only has to be as long as it takes for them to make the right contacts with lobbyists with pockets deep enough to enrich them. I agree with you on money and politics but time is also a variable in the corruption equation.
If voters are the only ones allowed to donate to politicians, they can change their vote if a politician doesn’t live up to their promises. The politician ends her/his own term if s/he fails.
Come to think of it, Rocky, while you and I are WORLDS apart on the practicality of universal health care, I’m with you on getting rid of money in politics. However, since the politicians (who are also lawmakers) make the rules, I don’t see it happening anytime soon!
It’s happening right now! It’s a slow-roll, but a whole bunch of new candidates just got elected partly because they refused to take corporate or other big money. In 2020, expect a whole bunch more of them to be elected.
The only precondition of any Justice Democrat candidate is that they don’t take any big donor money. Their average donation was $15.13 in the 2018 cycle, and I believe that there are 12 JDs in Congress, now.
This change is happening now.
The point is that JDs represent their donors – their constituents. Not like the corporate Ds or Rs who represent only their lobbyist or wealthy donors.
Let’s work on getting dark money out of politics. I am okay with AARP openly lobbying for retirees and labor unions openly lobbying for the American worker, so I have to accept the NRA openly lobbying for gun violence and Big Oil openly lobbying for no action on global warming. I would rather see our lawmakers concentrate on eliminating the dark money.
You have to shoot high if you want to accomplish anything regarding the total amount of corruption. Lobbyists will still exist. It’s just that they will have less influence. There is a PAC working to get money out of politics (ironic) called WOLF-PAC. It will be a long struggle, but a new state should join this month.
However, Common Cause fights anyone who tries to do anything that upsets established corruption.
Full control of the hill will help, for sure.
So does campaign finance reform, but neither is going to get passed by Congress. So if VOTERS want term limits, they need to remember that when they cast THEIR ballot.
Who can successfully campaign for term limits?
Hey, I can think of numerous politicians that campaigned for 8 yrs of repealing Obamacare. If the voters don’t ask where the votes are to get it passed Congress and in the case of 2010 and 2014 campaigns, where are the votes to override a veto, THAT was on the gullible voters. If someone wants to campaign on term limits, they need to share the list of legislators that will vote for term limits. Always learn from the mistakes of others, it is not necessary to repeat them.
Where’d you go M’Luv? Miss your thoughtful and pithy posts. I was once OnceUponATime in the previous IJR lifetime so we’ve met on these Streets of Fire (Street of Philadelphia?)
….And to think I missed his viewing! I may have made more of an effort to attend if I thought I could piss on his corpse and get away with it!!
At least the old f*ck told the truth ONCE: “It will take some time for Obamacare to control the people.”
This old ass inherited his position from his father who in turn, relinquished it to his wife! Which tells you how mind numbed his district is!!!
Many districts produce head scratching election results. John Boehner called a member of his caucus “a legislative terrorist.” But Ohio 4th district re-elected Jim Jordan for a 7th term. CA 50th returned Duncan Hunter for a 6th term AFTER federally indicted on 60 counts. Chris Collins was indicted on multiple charges before NY 27th sent him for a 4th term. Steve King, a decades known racist, is serving a 9th term. In Dingle’s 50 years of service, NO INDICTMENTS or ethics inquiries.
GOP Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has been calling out the federal government’s wasteful and nontransparent spending ever since voters put her into office, and now she’s drafting legislation in hopes of stopping […]
Kudos to Joni Ernst. But the article does not say what the experiments were for—-Cure for cancer, cure for Alzheimer’s, reverse paralysis, cure for male pattern baldness, or a cure for feline leukemia? That would be quite useful information. In order for Sen Ernst to know it was wasteful, she must have known.
President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address received high marks from viewers at home on Tuesday night, and now the president is seeing a significant bump in his approval rating — even among D […]
House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) laid into Congressional Democrats during Friday’s hearing for Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, calling the hearing “pointless” and a […]
I think Democrats are nothing but idiots who do not do the job they were sent there to do. All they are interested in is “getting” the President. Shameful!!!
So truly said
WHY do 54 IJR readers assume there is something to “get” on Trump?
There’s nothing to get, PhylSoft. What will you say when the exalted holy grail of special prosecuties, Witchhunter Bob, soon lays his sulfuric egg? The 54 have now watched (can’t unsee) for 3 years a gluttonous (and glutinous) ingestion of Kool aid; it induced the Hilary revenge syndrome, the rewards for which are a 40 virgin heaven, St. Clinton (affectionally ‘Willie’, or ‘swinging dick’) on guard at the pearly gate
33% of Americans want to wait & see what is in the Mueller Report, the SDNY indictments, & the NY AG’s investigation.
33%, Affectionately known by Trump as those who would still support him if he shot someone in the middle of Fifth Ave, can not imagine there is anything in the report that they can not overlook.
33% believe he conspired with the Russian.
Me, I want to wait for the Mueller report TO SEE WHY EVERYONE LIES so much.
I’m with you; I don’t though expect any reasonable explanation (other than their moral, legal, patriotic and professional compasses going haywire) for the FBI’s texts, lies and secret societies
Their idiot shams on senseless hearing just to get at Trump will bolster Trump in 2020….you can bet on it….
They said during their campaign they were going to do this and they are. They also said they are putting extra eyes on a Trumps administration. They are not letting this go.
If these infantile idiots would just shut the hell up and do the jobs that we taxpayers pay them to do, we might move forward in this country. No, instead they just can’t get past the fact that the people voted President Trump into office. Their only agenda is to obstruct and delay. Grow up and take care of business, you losers!
Just curious. When the House and Senate investigated Benghazi 8 times, did you believe they were infantile idiots? When you supported the belief in disproved conspiracies,. was it because you just couldn’t get past the fact that the people voted President Obama into office for 8 years? Are your reactions based upon personal experience?
What a disgusting display of hostility from the Dems today. These are not the kind of people we need representing us in DC. Zero respect was shown to the acting AG. Shameless and hate-filled Dems on full display, perhaps someone should explain to them this was not a jury trial. Absolutely disgusting
Joining “The Late Show” on Thursday night, Meghan McCain revealed that she wasn’t expecting Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to attend her father’s funeral after her family made it clear President Donald Trump […]
Grief has a way with making people unreasonable. Unfortunately, the media will keep bringing this into spotlight rather than just letting it fade as it would for anyone else.
What a spiteful bitch that Megan McCain is. She needs to let it go. Her hate is going to ruin her soul.
Such a small mind for such a big body
Your daddy was always jealous of Trump & even more so when he beat out the laundry list of Republicans & Hillary. Trump is a winner he achieved the highest job in the land unlike your spiteful father.
Bitter? Party of one?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is making it clear her applause for President Donald Trump during his Tuesday State of the Union address wasn’t meant in a “sarcastic” manner after a viral photo of the moment […]
At least she set the record straight – even if it puts an end to some positive praise from her base.
God help America. Boneheaded leftists took Nancy’s affectation as the highlight of the SOTU. The followers of Hilary, Trump haters everywhere, were highly titillated. They know though to leave it to photographer Mills to divine her mindset.
After President Donald Trump’s second State of the Union address on Tuesday night, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) spoke with IJR and let congressional Democrats have it over their unenthusiastic reactions to some of […]
Senator Scalise, in the Democrat’s defense, they did stand to applaud THEMSELVES. When it came to applauding others…not so much.
I’m actually surprised ANY Democrats/Socialists bothered to attend the SOTU address by that “hateful” Trump. Maybe they just stopped by on their way to a bar where AOC was holding training classes.
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Donald Trump took a moment to honor both a Holocaust survivor in the audience and the American soldier and World War II veteran who helped free […]
After President Donald Trump rattled off accomplishments his administration has achieved in the past two years during his State of the Union address on Tuesday, he declared that the state of our union is “strong” […]
It’s good that Comrade Bernie combed his hair for this because CSPAN zoomed in on his grimace when this happened. What’s the matter Bernie? Don’t like having socialism called what it is?
Bet Bernie could not sleep last night.
ST I wonder where everyone from the old IJR went.
Miss not having Sharpensteen’s comments to read and laugh at.
Phyllis is still here. I think a lot got frustrated by all the unannounced changes and general bugginess.
Arriving at her husband’s second State of the Union Address, First Lady Melania Trump was welcomed into the House chamber with a standing ovation and overwhelming applause from those in attendance.
