  • Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has signaled that he’s not backing down to President Donald Trump’s attacks, as he said he has not ruled out running for president as a third-party Libertarian Party candidate.

    This […]

    • I am making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people say to me how much money they can make connected so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my existence. This is what I do….. http://www.Tag30.com

    • SPAM ALERT.

    • Maybe Amash’s personal, cozy relations with Chinese manufacturing and his bank account had a lot to do with his decision.

    • WHY would Rep Amash take it off the table? Reading Trump’s tweets, reading Trump supporters comments of Amash posted on social media, reading of the immediate primary challenge announcement, listening to FOX pundits call for Amash to leave the party, listening to the Chairman of the RNC’s comments on Amash, I am failing to see ANY action on the part of Republicans to discourage Amash from a third party candidacy. From everything I read and hear, Republicans are saying “RUN JUSTIN, RUN”! Trump devotees are giving him reasons TO run, NOT to take it off the table. Very strange strategy. Are R’s trying reverse psychology? Do you believe telling him to run will make him take it off the table??

      • What difference does it make if he does run?
        I’d never heard of him until he said ‘impeach’ and he, like so many other wanna-be-noticed pols, want face-time.
        He has passed one piece of legislation, the naming of a Post Office. Now if he ran on the Taliban ticket, he could get bookoo attention.

  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) rebuked President Donald Trump on Tuesday for blocking former White House counsel Don McGahn from testifying, docking it as the latest move in the […]

  • On Sunday, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) praised Morehouse College commencement speaker Robert F. Smith for committing to pay off all the loans of the college’s 2019 graduating class, but she […]

    • IF everyone should go to a FREE college to get a Bachelor’s degree, that’ll become as useful as one’s middle school graduating picture. Then, going on to get a FREE Master’s degree, one can see the same scenario. Where do we go after everyone has a handful of FREE PHD’s and no opportunity, no job? Do we all move back into Mommy and Daddy’s basement and become taxpayer parasites?

    • Free tuition is not a solution – it’s a bandaid. What would be better is to encourage career’s that don’t need a college degree.

      It would be worthwhile considering ways to encourage businesses to be more realistic about college requirements. An entry level position should not require a college degree. People who go to college are not entry level – they are trained.

      Throwing money indiscriminately at people with no requirements is stupid.

  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has a long resume of protecting vulnerable citizens, “expand[ing] access to health care,” and leading the most “diverse Congress in history,” and she just added “John F. […]

  • President Donald Trump is putting his word up against the “corrupt and deranged” mainstream media, denying a report that bankers at Deutsche Bank recommended sending his company’s money transactions to a federal […]

    • Is this article slanted? Hmmm…

    • “I didn’t need money.”

      I am confused.

      Coming into office, January 2017, King Donald The Loser owed more money than any previous president – $1.8 BILLION! to about 150 lending institutions, including Wells Fargo. You know, that other paradigm of trust. Trump only declared $315 million.

      We have the right to be worried and sceptical about a president who owes so much money and falsely declares less, and especially with the financial ties that he and the Kushner family still have with Russia.

      Am I worried about him money laundering?

      You betcha! That’s the main reason Congress needs his financial statements and taxes, and that is why King Donald The Loser wants to keep them hidden.

  • Attorney General William Barr is staunchly defending his summary of the Mueller report — and his testimony that followed — arguing that Democrats are trying to “discredit” him, even though there was “nothing ina […]

    • Piglosi is a vacant cranium with an incredible ability to spout nonsense.

      • What is the benefit of childish name calling? Are you attempting to recapture a moment on the grade school playground? Does it work?

        • I missed you Phyllis Softinthehead. Glad to see you are still so clever. The playground hasn’t been the same without your inane defense of the kids I used to bully. That is sarcasm if you cannot recognize it.
          Please remain holier-than-thou and again, my sympathies to your husband.

          • I missed you too, Otis. Actually, you are such a nice guy, I presumed you were the one bullied and with the internet you finally found a platform to strike back without consequences. If that isn’t it, WHAT is your benefit? My curiosity is not from a righteous place, just simply an emotional age appropriate place.
            I will pass along your sympathies to my husband, but he still hasn’t gotten over you calling him “pussy whipped.” I think you have to know him to realize just how funny that is. Think of a modern day cross between Archie Bunker & Don Draper. Your assertion is still the source of a lot of laughs at the Softa residence. I thank you for that.

    • Rep. Justin Amash is not a Democrat. He is a member of the Freedom Caucus. Anyone that actually read the Mueller Report and Barr’s statement recognizes Barr has SERIOUS credibility issues OF HIS OWN MAKING

      Even if someone tells you what you want to hear, one day you read the report and realize Barr is not going to be around when the Mueller report is studied by students and historians. They will simply be looking at the report as written. Will history claim Barr presented an accurate assessment? Sorry. that is undoubtedly NO.

      Did Barr claim he did not know Mueller’s opinion of the statement released? Mueller released 2 letters he sent to Barr expressing those opinions. He FORGOT a letter he later described as “snitty”? If you got a letter you described as “snitty” would it have slipped your mind? Not likely.

  • Former President Barack Obama teamed up with the Democratic National Convention to announce the creation of the “Democratic Unity Fund” on Friday.

    • Really do have to wonder if Hillary is going to contribute. ** massive eye roll **

      • Can you imagine the “slap in the face” to the DNC and demoncrap party as a whole if there is not a huge contribution from her and another from Slick Willie. I am fully expecting her to announce that she has entered the race.

    • “Decency, honesty and progress”. What a loaded crock of bovine excrement! And that from an illegitimate Marxist president with Indonesian citizenship. That creep wouldn’t know what the words decency and honesty meant and certainly NOT “progress” as he so ineptly demonstrated. Maybe he’s another of those can’t do; so do as I say and lie about it with a straight face. He needs to go back to Kenya.

      • James, you expose your ignorance in every post that you mention socialism.

        You are obviously confused by the differences between socialism, democratic socialism, Marxism, communism, and most likely fascism, and it seems that you have no intention of ever clarifying the differences in your mind.

        Give us a break and, in your free time, go take a course about them.

    • He should just go away.

    • Isn’t it great that Super O is excited? Perez, the ass, is likely just giddy too.

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called out President Donald Trump on Friday for his “very racist” new legal immigration plan proposal.

    As IJR Red reported on Thursday, Trump proposed a new immigration proposal […]

    • How is merit racist exactly?

      The nearly two dozen Far East Asian, Middle Eastern and Asian immigrants I know would beg to differ Max. All of them came from non English speaking countries, most were very poor, and every one of them came to this country already speaking English and with marketable job skills.

      Additionally many of the African immigrants I’ve had the pleasure of meeting already meet the meritocracy standard. Regardless, unlike many Latino immigrants (legal or illegal), they all strive to learn and become fluent in English. In fact many speak better English than you do Max.

      • Absolutely, Morte. The ‘racism’ cry is the first out of the mouths of those with weak arguments (and minds).
        My friend ‘Brooklyn Bob’ said that his Italian family would not let the children speak Italian, which is a shame in a way, but they wanted to BE Americans. While I wish I was bilingual, but English is the language of this nation, as it should be.

  • Hollywood stars are coming together on social media to condemn the Alabama Republican Party for “waging all-out war on women” by passing the strictest anti-abortion law in the nation — and the governor for s […]

    • NOT being a fan of AOC does NOT prevent anyone from asking WHY the public owned patent WAS NOT enforced? If the US taxpayer paid for the research and development of the drug treatment, HOW is a private company blocking the sell of generic Truvada until Sept 2020? The US taxpayer paid for the research & development and US citizens that need the drug are forced to pay Gilead for research & development until Sept., 2020??

      • “WHY the public owned patent WAS NOT enforced?” Phyllis

        The American people (including voters) don’t realize how corrupted our government is. The politicians who take their payoffs from the big pharmacutical and insurance companies want to misdirect and misinform us, to keep us confused about how we are being ripped off or even murdered.

        These two groups are at the top of this legal bribery scheme, so the politicians make it easy to write bad patent agreements.

    • I do not understand down votes for this article. Are the down votes for the article reflecting a negative view of a pharmaceutical company or a negative view of BEING MADE AWARE of Gilead taking advantage of US citizens?

      • Its republicans downing AOC no matter what. They do that a lot, vote against their own interests cause you know…god, guns and stuff.

    • Welcome, Hank and Brian, to the cauldron that is IJR! Your sane thoughts are most heartwarming to hear!

    • Brian, if we remain silent, NEVER.

    • And you believe the auto industry does not have lobbyist in DC? They do. If we outlaw lobbying for industries, countries or causes we are not supporting, that means we are outlawing lobbyist for what we support. Then we have UNDECLARED lobbyist. One of the many things we learned from the Mueller indictments was we sure have a lot of undeclared lobbyist already.

  • In the most prominent battle currently taking place between House Democrats and President Donald Trump, over 25 Democratic representatives declared that “summaries won’t do” on the Mueller report and are taking […]

    • Do these elected representatives not know or understand that the DOJ has printed the report? Do they not also know that the report in it’s printed form is available even at anyone’s local WalMart?

      • Want to guess how many Americans have actually read it? Collusion is addressed in the Introductory of Volume I of the report and POTUS & IJR readers still claim “Mueller found no collusion.” If they did not get to page 2 of the report, that would not classify as reading it. But I do suspect that the folks who did not read it were going for willful ignorance and would not tune in to hear it read to them.

        • ”Want to guess how many Americans have actually read it?”

          To unconfuse us, not many have read the report fully. According to one poll, a few weeks after its release, about 3% respondents SAID that they did. That equals 9.9 MILLION people.

          Not a chance. Even today, that number seems ridiculous.

          • It could be that the general population considers that it was all a fishing expedition and does not really care what Mueller had to say.

            Your “poll” did not ask me if I had read it.

            And having read the report I am still trying to figure which 5th grader wrote the report. I would have thought that Mueller and his merry band of demoncrap lawyers would have been more literate.

            • I covered your theory in willful ignorance. And the 5th grade language were quotes from those in the Trump campaign, family and administration. Were you thinking the average American citizen went to law school and anticipated it would be legalese?

        • For those playing along with the home game, collusion is mentioned on page 39 of the DOJ publication. The report states that Collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code. It also states that Collusion isn’t, “a term of art in federal criminal law.”

          • In the paperback WaPo publication of the Mueller Report, it is on page 2 of Introduction to Volume I, which appears on page 60 in that edition. The quote is the same as what appears on your page 39.

      • Well, we have 3 IJR readers who do not want to guess how many Americans read the Mueller report either online or in print. I read it, but I have to put all 6 of the Trump voters in my family in the “Don’t need to read it.” category. Mitt Romney’s comments convinced them they did not want to know.

      • It has been available on the internet for free download since it was released.

    • The members of the Dimwit Party will continue beating this old dead horse until well past the 2024 election cycle. Seems they cannot accept the decisions of 19 fellow Hillary Clinton donors (i.e., Trump hating lawyers) since they didn’t get the results they were demanding in order to impeach Trump (for a yet to be determined/manufactured excuse other than he beat their sickly female, radicalized, career criminal in 2016). NO do-overs.

  • President Donald Trump’s administration issued a $12 billion bailout for farmers — but $62 million of that has already reportedly been given to an international meatpacking company owned in Brazil that has b […]

    • “However, this has, in no way, halted the million-dollar transactions between the Trump administration and the Brazilian-based company.” Article

      I am confused. Which Trump officials, by name and title, are approving this action and are pushing it ahead? Who is going to fight for getting the money flow stopped and reversed?

  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has officially jumped into the 2020 Democratic race, and he’s trying to use his past experience fighting “Con Don” as a selling point of why voters should check his name on their […]

    • Deblasé is the man of the working class??? Yeah, the working class with a $145M net worth.

  • On Wednesday, the Alabama state senate passed the  strictest abortion law in the country, but it wasn’t without a fight from state Sen. Vivian Davis Figures (D) who rebuked her GOP colleagues for passing a bill […]

    • Sometimes BLUNT is needed, even if ineffectual in the end. Thank you Ms Figures for your bluntness.

    • I can feel compassion for a woman that has had such crimes done upon her but a baby is innocent of all the actions. You don’t have to be reminded of crimes committed against you “everyday” (as if you’d ever forget). There are people that would take that baby, raise that baby and love that baby. Should a baby die for another’s crime? I think the reason some states are fighting the abortion machine and pushing it back is because we were lied to. We were told a baby was a “clump of cells” then ultra-sound showed us truth. If a baby is a “clump of cells” that’s all we all are. We were told abortion would only be used “in extreme cases of need” and now it’s used like a morning after pill. Further, more POC are aborted then any other……that’s racist (as the founder of PP was).

  • House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) blasted Attorney General William Barr as “just a liar” for President Donald Trump, claiming Barr’s motives are either to “hide whatever he has to hide” or […]

  • Not too long ago, it was considered ethically taboo to have White House staffers campaign on behalf of a president’s reelection — but now it’s being shrugged off as a non-issue in President Donald Trump’s a […]

    • And when Mr. “O” and his staff did it, even regarding national business, no one said anything. No one was “reminded” of the Hatch Act, even though they were blatant with its misuse because anything done in opposite of bowing to him was considered racist – which word was hardly ever used until Trump haters began to use it for anyone they disagreed with.

      • Your ignorance is profound. Try stepping out of that bubble for once in your life.

      • “when Mr. “O” and his staff did it, even regarding national business, no one said anything” C

        I think Oversight Committee Chairman Darell Issa would disagree with you (2014) and say that you are confused.

      • If no one said anything, how did you know it was blatant misuse? So you believe if someone calls you a “racist,” it means they just disagree with your comments???

    • Such partisan bullshit, what are they going to come up with next ?

    • What an ignorant story. The slimy democrats constantly complain about EVERYTHING involving Trump thus they continually complain about the Hatch Act. Gasper must be a lib or a never Trumper or just can’t see the forest for the trees.

    • I thought The Hatch Act was when someone trys to do the USA political business with a foreign government.. Like that idiot the former SOS John Kerry has been trying to do with Iran….

      • No, what Kerry is guilty of is violating the Logan Act as a former Government employee in contact with a foreign Government. Just too may Acts to keep track of and nobody does anything to punish the offenders. Kerty will probably have his wife – Mrs. Heinz Ketchup – pay off the Government and he’ll skate free.

    • A Socialist calling someone a “racist” is only because they generally don’t have an intelligent response to your comment. “Racist” is the go-to word now – post #44 – to “win an argument” along with all the other catch phrases they have in their slander deck.

    • And I am sure that NO ONE in the Ovomit administration did this…..correct??????

      • Louie provided a graph in the article and made note of the Obozo administration’s violations in 2014 and 2015 but conveniently did not make mention of the large increase in number of violations in 2016 when his staff was campaigning for Hitlery.

    • Who the Hell is Louis Gasper?

    • I have difficulty understanding the 8 down-votes your comment received. The behavior of Trump and the campaign staff was WELL KNOWN before anyone cast a ballot. EVERY one of the 62,979,636 voters knew what they were voting for. So WHY down-vote the obvious?

    • What campaign rally? He has not been campaigning. I do notice you select your wording to manipulate uneducated readers. “White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to campaign with him at his rally held on the same night”

      Notice you don’t say “campaign rally” because clearly that would be a lie, right…it was NOT a campaign rally, now was it, it was just another one of his friendly informative, town-hall like, meetings that are SO GINORMOUS they must be held in stadiums.

    • Why would WH staffers behave any differently than they are in light of the culture that comes from the top? This is the way the mob boss president has always done business.

    • Could it be that these complaints are fueled by anti-Trumpers and demoncraps simply because they are against everything that President Trump and his administration does?

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden rebuked the Trump administration’s “inappropriate” threat to investigate deals that his son, Hunter Biden, made with Ukranian officials in his role on the board of directors of a […]

    • Biden had learned the lessons on how to lie from his former “boss”, an expert Prevaricator-in-Chief. IF the Ukrainian deal “didn’t happen”, did Hunter also NOT receive $1.5 Billion from the Chinese Communists and the Bank of China – – – while accompanying VP Daddy on Air Force 2 rather than use commercial airlines for his business travel? How many $$$ did VP Daddy receive? How many $$$ did inept #44 receive as he turned a blind eye to misuse of AF2?

    • As we say down here in the deep South of Louisiana, “Yeah, right”.

    • I would think they want to investigate Joe Biden’s threat to halt the payment of promised monies from the USA to the Ukraine government, if they didn’t back off their investigation of his son’s dealings. He not only did that, but bragged about it on camera.

    • Gaff prone buffoon that is basically uninformed and un-electable..

    • “It’s just inappropriate to send your lawyer to a foreign government to try to get them to do something that has no bearing except to try to embarrass.” But I’ll bet Joe thinks it’s okay if you want to use a Dossier with fake and untrue crap in it to illegally obtain a FISA Warrent from corrupt TOP Justice Executives to SPY on an American Citizen and Presidential Candidate. That’s APPROPRIATE!? Okay Joe……sure……….ya BOZO!!!

  • Twitter users are fired up over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) advice to Donald Trump Jr. to ignore a Congressional subpoena, urging them to call for the senator’s resignation in an overwhelming fashion.

    On […]

    • Perfect example of why you will NEVER find me on twitter. It is so full of twits.

    • The Hon. Senator from S.C. seems unaware that Republican Congressmen are susceptible to foot-in-mouth disease, too.

      But someone who is also the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman advising a person to ignore a subpoena is too confused to hold office.

      • I’m sure Lindsey will go out resign immediately because the most confused person on this site called him confused. So just how confused do you find the dim members of the House Judiciary Committee, who are lawyers, wanting Barr’s head because he WON’T BREAK THE LAW? By your OWN logic, each and every one of them is too confused to hold office, too.

        • Don’t hold your breath that Senator Graham will make such a stupid move because some individual has a weird obsession.

    • The Democrats haven’t learned from history regarding polling or social media data sources. While I’m not a fan of Lindsey Graham for his red flag law support, he’s certainly entitled to state his opinion.

    • Senator Graham is correct. There is no reason why Don Jr should testify AGAIN. He’s told the Dimwits all they wanted to know. NOW they are setting a politically motivated perjury trap in order to indict one Trump family member because Trump beat their female career criminal “Queen” in 2016.

    • #LindseyGrahamResign
      Senator Graham is doing the right thing and you who are wanting to silence him are trying to stop the truth narrative. Why are you so angry when things are the best they’ve been in this country in decades?

  • Despite worries from economic experts, U.S. businesses, and consumers alike that the country will face harm from the massive China tariff hike, President Donald Trump insists the United States is in a “fantastic […]
