    RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Moroccan authorities on Monday dispersed a group of activists who tried to hold a protest outside the parliament building in the capital to denounce the country’s recent decision to establish diplomatic relations with Israel. Dozens of police officers in riot gear were mobilized to push protesters away from parliament in Rabat. Demonstrators wanted to show solidarity with Palestinians and reject the normalization of ties between Rabat and Tel Aviv. The U.S. brokered deal was announced last week by President Donald Trump. Sion Assidon, a Moroccan Jew and a human rights activist, told reporters while being escorted away by authorities that “whoever expresses disagreement must put duct tape on their mouths.” Abdessamad Fathi, president of the Moroccan Instance for the Support of Ummah Affairs, a group affiliated with the outlawed Al Adl Wal Ihsane movement, said on Facebook that authorities’ decision to ban sit-in...
    (CNN)This week, President Donald Trump was still at it, baselessly trying to undermine the 2020 election. Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic reached a grim new milestone, killing more Americans than those killed on September 11, 2001, in a single day -- and is projected to continue to hit new highs.Through it all, Trump has remained fixated on denying his own electoral loss, including at this week's vaccine summit at the White House. While the event was intended to tout breakthroughs with Operation Warp Speed, Trump also neglected to invite anyone from the incoming Biden administration, even though his successor will largely oversee vaccine distribution in 2021.

    Musician Neil Young has reportedly dropped a lawsuit against President Donald Trump. Young sued Trump for copyright infringement back in August after the president continued to use his music during campaign rallies, according to an article published Monday by The Hollywood Reporter.

    Neil Young seems to have dropped his legal suit against Donald Trump for using his music at campaign events.  In August, the singer and songwriter finally sued the Trump 2020 campaign for copyright infringement after the president repeatedly ignored calls from the rocker to stop using his music at events, which he said gave people the incorrect idea that he supports the Republican’s agenda.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, the suit was dismissed by Young with prejudice, which means it cannot be renewed. The outlet notes that this typically means that a settlement has been reached, but neither side has publicly addressed the situation yet.  Representatives for Young did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.  NEIL YOUNG REVEALS HE BECAME A U.S. CITIZEN, WILL VOTE DEMOCRAT: 'I’M HAPPY TO REPORT I’M IN' The notice of dismissal came on the same day in which Trump was due in...
    After threatening to sue President Donald Trump for copyright infringement, Neil Young has voluntarily dismissed the case in New York courts. The Canadian-born songsmith filed a lawsuit after his songs “Rockin’ in the Free World” and “Devil’s Sidewalk” were played during the President’s now-infamous rally in Tulsa this summer — which featured thousands of empty seats despite his campaign’s boast it had requests for 1 million tickets. “This is NOT ok with me…,” Young, 75, raged in a tweet at the time. The “Crazy Horse” frontman’s initial complaint in August said he “cannot allow his music to be used as a ‘theme song’ for a divisive, un-American campaign of ignorance and hate.” Young also alleged that Trump had repeatedly used his music without permission since 2015. However, at the time, the Commander in Chief’s staff claimed they had paid to license the tunes for a campaign event. In 2016, Young even...
    Reuters December 8, 2020 0 Comments Neil Young on Monday ended his lawsuit against U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign for playing of two of his songs at campaign rallies without permission.

    Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is using his post-pardon press tour to preview a new salvo against the Russia investigation. In his most recent interview with Jeanine Pirro on Fox News Saturday night, the former White House national security adviser was asked why he can't just "blow the lid off all them" and tell the public what he knows. She was focusing on a warning outgoing President Barack Obama reportedly gave to then-President-elect Donald Trump in an Oval Office meeting shortly after the 2016 election about North Korea and hiring Flynn. "I must have put the fear of god into Barack Obama and probably still do because of this four-year long saga that they put me, my family through, President Donald J. Trump and his family and frankly the entire country," Flynn said, referring to him being a target of the FBI's Russia investigation. Flynn said he hopes somebody would...

    Photo credit: Justin Sullivan, Getty Images. Across America, many families will be getting out their Christmas decorations as they wrap up their Thanksgiving meals, but President Donald Trump is ready to celebrate Festivus, taking to Twitter Thursday afternoon for a fiery airing of grievances. Among his targets were some of his favorite metaphorical punching bags: Fox News, NFL players protesting racial injustice, and states that shockingly certified President-elect Joe Biden as the winner for the silly reason that he got more votes than Trump. Trump had started the morning with this aggrieved theme, kicking off Thanksgiving with a tweet railing against the “100% RIGGED ELECTION.” After another tweet touting Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision blocking Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s pandemic restrictions on attendance at religious services, the presidential Twitter feed fell silent for a few peaceful hours. HAPPY THANKSGIVING! https://t.co/56e8Qy7O22 — Donald J.

    Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images President Donald Trump is kicking off his Thanksgiving by railing against the 2020 election — which he baselessly claims to have been “100% RIGGED.” In a Thursday morning Tweet, the president falsely stated that the popular vote total in excess of 80 million for President-elect Joe Biden could not possibly be accurate. “Just saw the vote tabulations,” Trump wrote. “There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION.” Just saw the vote tabulations. There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION. — Donald J.

    Frequent readers of Mediaite know that we have long credited Young Turks’ founder and host Cenk Uygur’s willingness to hit back at his political opponents, a rare trait for those on the progressive end of the political spectrum. His lead role on the “fighting left” was on full display during a Thursday night segment in which he called out President-elect Joe Biden’s unwillingness to actively fight back on President Donald Trump’s specious effort to overturn the election results which he clearly lost. Uygur’s pique came in response to Trump and his legal team’s efforts to disenfranchise the predominantly African-American voters in Detroit and persuade Michigan’s Republican state legislators to overturn the will of the state’s voters. Uygur says he has grown increasingly exasperated at the Biden camp’s seeming unwillingness to combat the low-speed coup currently underway. When Biden announced he was holding a press conference to address the matter,...
    Trump-aligned voters in four states dropped their lawsuits Monday morning, which had been designed to trip up President-elect Joe Biden's path to the White House.  CNN reported that cases in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania federal courts were pulled.  They had been spearheaded by the law firm of conservative attorney James Bopp Jr., who explained to CNN 'because of [attorney-client] privilege and because I do not telegraph my next moves, I cannot comment.'       Election officials count absentee ballots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Four voters in Wisconsin, who lived in other counties, tried to say that Milwaukee County and two other blue counties' ballots should be tossed because of different rules for absentee ballot processing President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election, with allies trying to use the courts to change the result.

    As President Donald Trump continues to raise questions about the presidential election and the media’s election predictions, the social media Masters of the Universe have continued to label the President’s posts with”fact-checks” to lower their engagement and viral spread. Breitbart News has reported extensively on social media websites increasing their censorship leading up to the 2020 Presidential election. Twitter stated last week that it put labels on 300,000 user posts from October 27 to November 11 for violating rules related to election misinformation. Twitter also implemented a retweet feature that required users to add their own comments before retweeting a post on the platform. Between election day and Friday of last week, Twitter labeled around 34 percent of President Trump’s tweets and retweets as “disputed.” Breitbart News has reported extensively on this, noting recently that 25 of President Trump’s posts across Twitter and Facebook were labeled or disputed within 24 hours. One recent tweet by...
    TikTok : In early August, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, affirmed that his government would ban the application of TikTok on September 15 if it did not reach a sale agreement on its operations in the country before that date. TikTok reached an agreement with Oracle and Walmart to create TikTok Global, an entity in which US companies would own a 20% stake. Donald Trump vs TikTok Trump, who initially gave his approval to the deal, said he could not approve it if Oracle did not have control over TikTok. And the war continues: Donald Trump and his government continue to face the Chinese application, which continues to increase its viral reach and its millionaire number of downloads and active users per month. The last thing in this war happened in September, when ehe United States government issued an order that...
    President Donald Trump has once again voiced his displeasure with the process by which votes are being recounted by hand in Georgia. His latest criticism of the state’s efforts to confirm its results from the November 3 general election came via Twitter on Saturday. Trump also continued to espouse his belief that radical left Democrats had conspired to turn the vote in favor of his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. “The hand recount taking place in Georgia is a waste of time. They are not showing the matching signatures. Call off the recount until they allow the MATCH,” he tweeted. “Don’t let the Radical Left Dems STEAL THE ELECTION!” As relayed previously by The Inquisitr, Biden was projected one day earlier to have taken the White House by capturing 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232. That’s the same margin that the president referred to as a “landslide” following his 2016 defeat...
    The video sharing social media platform TikTok will not be forced to shut down, the Commerce Department said, announcing it would not enforce its previous order that would have forced the Chinese-owned app to shut down.

    President Donald Trump on Thursday outlined his path to victory in the 2020 election, showing a readiness to challenge former Vice President Joe Biden’s large leads in several key states. “Never bet against me,” Trump said, in his first post-election interview with Washington Examiner reporter Byron York. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Democrats, and corporate media figures continue pressing the president to concede the election so that a speedy transition of power can take place. But Trump indicated he was unwilling to concede the election as long as votes were being counted and challenged in court. To start with, Trump argued, he could win Wisconsin, where his campaign has requested a recount of the election. Arizona, he continued, could find 8,000 votes for him if the campaign could get an audit of the votes cast in that state. A hand recount of the votes in Georgia could also gain up to...
    A Trump-appointed federal judge dismissed President Donald Trump’s libel lawsuit against CNN on Thursday for an opinion piece critical of the president last year. Judge Michael Brown of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia ruled that Trump’s campaign had failed to prove that CNN exhibited actual malice toward him, the legal test required to establish whether libel has been demonstrated against a public figure. Brown said the campaign has until the end of this month to update their complaint to proceed with the lawsuit. Neither a Trump campaign attorney nor a CNN spokesperson commented on the decision. Trump’s campaign filed the lawsuit in March, and it was one among similar complaints filed against other media outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. The lawsuit alleged that Larry Noble’s 2019 opinion piece published on CNN’s website falsely claimed that the president’s campaign “assessed the...
    On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Michael L. Brown dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Deadline reported. The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit against CNN in March this year, deeming reporter Larry Noble’s column about Russian interference in American elections libelous. In the op-ed, Noble wrote that “the Trump campaign assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia’s help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table.” According to CNN’s lawyers, the reporter’s column is not actionable because he was simply stating his opinion on the matter, not presenting the information as indisputable facts. Trump and his advisers were accused of cooperating and conspiring with the Kremlin to win the 2016 presidential election. However, as The New York Times reported, former special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of any such activities, although he detailed extensive efforts by the Russian government...

    Entertainment : Donald Trump is determined to maintain the legal battle to declare Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 United States elections illegal. Over the weekend his legal advisers have met to map out the legal strategy in the states where the Democratic candidate has turned around in voting thanks to voting by mail or where the difference is minimal.

    Chauncey DeVega November 8, 2020 5:06PM (UTC) Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have won the 2020 presidential election. Biden will receive at least 290 votes in the Electoral College, with the final outcome in Georgia and North Carolina still unclear. Despite the howls of protest from Donald Trump's supporters, his quest for re-election is effectively over. On Saturday afternoon, the American people exploded in celebration after several days of suspense as millions of mail-in votes were slowly counted in key battleground states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina, Nevada and Arizona. (At this writing, it appears that Biden will win six of those seven states, and fall just short in North Carolina.) More than 75 million votes were cast for Biden, with millions more remaining to be counted. That's by far the most for any presidential candidate in American history. : But while the Biden-Harris ticket and the Democratic Party may have defeated Donald Trump the man, Trumpism — as...

    After President Donald Trump falsely declared he had won the election, claiming victory in several states that had yet to be called, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Nicolle Wallace, and Joy Reid reacted with outrage, declaring Trump’s comments to be “autocratic malarkey,” a “Hee Haw laugh track,” and legally meaningless “entertainment for his friends on Fox.” Anchor Brian Williams cut in during the end of Trump’s remarks, saying “We are reluctant to step in but duty bound to point out when he says ‘we did win this election, we’ve already won,’ that’s not based in the facts at all. Again, there are millions of votes yet to be counted, our presidents don’t select our victors.” Williams brought in MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki, who walked through the map in areas like some counties in Pennsylvania, where they had not yet counted a single mail-in ballot. According to Kornacki, the “big picture in Pennsylvania” was that it looked like there were “upward of 2 million...

            by Julie Kelly  Barack Obama and Joe Biden head to Michigan this weekend to hustle votes in one of the three states that helped elect Donald Trump in 2016. Recent polls show Biden with a comfortable lead in Michigan, but Democrats are taking nothing for granted in the final stretch; Representative Debbie Dingel (D-Mich.) on Wednesday warned Team Biden that the race is tightening. “So many auto workers who I thought were going to go back to Joe Biden were very clear with me…that they were voting for President Trump.” Enter the Anointed One. Obama already has been on the stump twice in Florida, attempting to bolster Biden’s flagging support among Hispanic voters, and once in Philadelphia. The former president was planning to stay out of the race, according to his longtime political consigliere David Axelrod, but Trump’s antics have forced Obama onto the campaign trail. “He doesn’t view...

    Washington (CNN)A former Trump campaign official excoriated President Donald Trump's reelection bid Wednesday, insisting that his team has "worked very much against free speech and democracy."Jessica Denson, who worked on Trump's 2016 campaign as the Hispanic engagement director, told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead" that she has seen the President's 2020 campaign "go out brandishing a Bible and an American flag and claiming that they have anything to do with freedom, but I've lived first-hand that they have nothing to do with freedom.""They have worked very much against free speech and democracy," she said. Denson's comments built upon her rebuke of the President in an advertisement released earlier Wednesday for "Republican Voters Against Trump," in which she endorses Democratic nominee Joe Biden. In the video, she casts Trump's first White House run as "a vile, self-serving branding exercise for one man and his family.""Donald Trump always says 'no censorship'...
    The Atlantic, which is certainly in the running for the title of our nation’s greatest magazine, came into existence in 1857 and in 1860 endorsed Abraham Lincoln for president. But the Atlantic is not a newspaper, not fundamentally political, and, immediately after endorsing Lincoln, it realized that it was not the kind of publication that would be routinely endorsing political candidates. (In fact, it didn’t issue an endorsement in 1864, when Lincoln was up for re-election.) The magazine did not issue an endorsement again until 1964, when it didn’t so much endorse Lyndon Johnson as warn that Barry Goldwater should not be elected president. (The country agreed, by a mighty impressive 61-39 percent in the popular vote and an even more emphatic 486-52 in the Electoral College vote.) The Atlantic reached, and expressed, a similar conclusion in 2016, when it endorsed Hillary Clinton specifying that it considered Donald Trump unfit....
    During a Sunday appearance on CNN, journalist and author Carl Bernstein spoke to network host Ana Cabrera about a purported plot against Donald Trump created by Republicans in the Senate. As reported by Raw Story, the writer claimed this scheme is intended to prevent the U.S. leader from refusing to leave office if he loses in November. “There are about 6,8,10 members of the Senate, Republicans in the Senate who are talking with each other about how to restrain what they regard as an out-of-control, almost madman — to use the term of one of those senators — who is determined to do anything to hold on to office regardless of its legality. Regardless of how far it crosses lines that are unthinkable, in terms of authoritarianism.” According to Bernstein, these Republicans — some of whom he claims have spoken to Upper Chamber Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — are “very,...
    Joe Biden condemned President Donald Trump's relentless attacks against his son Hunter Biden in a new podcast interview, calling it 'crass' to go after a rival's family. Trump has repeatedly disparaged the Democratic's nominee's son in the final days leading up to the election, claiming that Hunter made millions of dollars from overseas business dealings because his father was vice president.  In a Pod Save America episode released Saturday, Biden was asked why he hasn't hit back at Trump by highlighting how the president's own children have profited from his office.     'It's a specific decision.

    US President Trump’s top national security adviser for China appeared to endorse an accusation by The Economist magazine that Beijing’s policies towards Uygurs and other Muslim minority groups in China’s far west Xinjiang region amount to crimes against humanity. In a speech on Friday he delivered in Mandarin, Matthew Pottinger, a deputy national security adviser, described the Chinese government’s detention facilities in Xinjiang – which the UN says are holding one million Uygurs and other Muslim minorities – as concentration camps, and implored China’s citizens to learn for themselves what is happening there. “It is in a spirit of friendship, reflection, and, yes, candour, that I ask friends in China to research the truth about your government’s policies toward the Uygur people and other religious minorities,” he said to a video conference hosted by the think tank Policy Exchange in London.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump went head to head on Thursday night at the presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee, where Biden claimed Trump is a “very confused guy.” Biden’s remarks came as he and Trump went back and forth on healthcare for the American people. “He’s a very confused guy,” Biden claimed. “He thinks he’s running against someone else. He’s running against Joe Biden. I beat all those other people because I disagreed with them. Joe Biden he’s running against.” He went on: The idea that we’re in a situation that they’re gonna destroy medicare… this is the guy that the [inaudible] medicare said if in fact… social security… if in fact he continues to withhold his plan to withhold the tax on social security. Social security will be bankrupt in by 2023 with no way to make up for it. This is the guy who...
    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday berated President Donald Trump at a campaign stop for his former vice president, Joe Biden. “We need to reclaim our values,” Obama said, arguing that Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), could lead the country out of “dark times.” The former president criticized President Trump’s character, citing the angry messages on Twitter and the personal attacks against his rivals. “That’s not normal presidential behavior,” Obama said, noting that Americans would not tolerate Trump’s behavior from a high school principal or a coach, but perhaps a “crazy uncle” in someone’s family. “Why would we accept this from the President of the United States and why are folks making excuses for that?” he asked with disbelief. Obama said that the president’s behavior only emboldened the negative forces in the country. “There are consequences to these actions. They embolden other people to be cruel...
    President Donald Trump rape accuser E. Jean Carroll and her lawyers arrive for her hearing at federal court during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in the New York, October 21, 2020.Carlo Allegri | Reuters A Manhattan federal court hearing for a case that hinges on the allegation that President Donald Trump raped a writer more than two decades ago ended abruptly Wednesday, after a government lawyer was barred from the courthouse due to New York's coronavirus rules. Lawyers for the Department of Justice had planned to make oral arguments in person before Judge Lewis Kaplan to support their position that the DOJ should be allowed to intervene in E. Jean Carroll's defamation lawsuit against Trump. But one of those lawyers was denied entry to the courthouse in lower Manhattan earlier in the day because he had traveled there from his home in Virginia. Virginia is among a group of states...
    The Justice Department will reportedly file an antitrust lawsuit against Google on Tuesday. According to media reports, the suit alleges that Google’s proprietary features with three desktop browsers and mobile search deals with Apple and Android violate current antitrust laws. A House of Representatives report that followed on a recent antitrust hearing with Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple, found that Google controls nearly 90 percent of all search traffic.

    In a Twitter message posted on Sunday, President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign accused Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of “encouraging assassination attempts” against the commander-in-chief. The conspiratorial tweet pointed out that Whitmer displayed the numbers 86 and 45 during a recent television appearance, suggesting that the governor sent a coded signal to those opposed to the 45th President of the United States. “Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an ’86 45′ sign during her TV appearance. 86 can be shorthand for killing someone,” the tweet read. “Whitmer is encouraging assassination attempts against President Trump just weeks after someone sent a ricin-laced package to the White House.” In a follow-up message, the Trump campaign attached two screenshots with definitions of the slang term “86’d,” apparently to demonstrate that this terminology is often used to describe murder. The post quickly drew attention, with political operatives and members of the press describing the claims as...
    Gretchen Whitmer lashed out at Donald Trump on Sunday for inciting domestic terrorism after he encouraged a rally crowd in Michigan to chant 'lock her up' over her state-wide handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The chants and criticism of Whitmer also came a week after a failed kidnapping plot was revealed against the Michigan governor. 'It's incredibly disturbing that the president of the United States, 10 days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial, and execute me … is at it again … inciting this kind of domestic terrorism,' Whitmer told NBC's 'Meet the Press' Sunday morning. Whitmer demanded that 'people of good will on both sides of the aisle' call out the president's words and 'bring the heat down.' 'It is dangerous, not just for me and my family, but for public servants everywhere,' Whitmer said. The Democratic governor has come under fire from President Trump and...
    California donors from Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and businesses are helping Democratic Senate candidates to swamp GOP campaigns, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times. “Between June 1 and September 30, Democratic Senate candidates raised $386 million and GOP candidates raised $154 million, with [South Carolina’s Jamie] Harrison raising the most of any Senate candidate [$57 million] in a three-month period ever, according to fundraising disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday,” said the October 17 report. “Much of the money flowed from California’s large number of political contributors,” the newspaper reported. “The $28 million [Theresa] Greenfield raised last quarter is more than quadruple what [Iowa Sen. Joni] Ernst pulled in … Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, the Democrat running for Senate whose $25.3 million haul last quarter more than doubled what the incumbent raised … Former astronaut Mark Kelly raised nearly $36 million in his Arizona race to...
    The Biden campaign sent out a three-page memo to supporters Saturday warning that President Trump can still win and the race is "neck and neck" in certain critical battleground states, including Arizona and North Carolina.  Jen O'Malley Dillon, Joe Biden's campaign manager, cautioned supporters against complacency, pointing to uncertain polls and lessons learned from Trump's upset win in 2016. "[T]he reality is that this race is far closer than some of the punditry we’re seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest," Dillon wrote in the memo obtained by Fox News.  Dillon cautioned that polling showing Biden ahead may not be accurate. BIDEN BLUE WAVE SENDS BEARISH SIGNAL TO STOCKS “[E]ven the best polling can be wrong and that variables like turnout mean that in a number of critical swing states we are fundamentally tied," Dillon wrote.  The message to supporters was to press on the gas in the final stretch...
    President Donald Trump on Friday said his reelection would send a message to not only the mainstream media but the “Big Tech” companies of Silicon Valley. “The biggest thing we can do? November 3rd,” Trump said. “We’re not just running against Joe Biden. We’re running against the left-wing media and we’re running against Big Tech.” The president spoke about new reporting from the New York Post about former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter pursuing lucrative foreign deals while his father was in office. “All of this is being covered up by the media and ‘Big Tech,’ Trump said. Twitter notably censored the stories published by the New York Post from their platform and Facebook took actions to reduce the spread of the information. “They talk about freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. There’s no freedom of the press,” Trump said. Trump added that for years he had...
    President Donald Trump held a large outdoor rally in Florida Friday where supporters chanted 'Lock him up!' when he tore into rival Joe Biden, who himself blasted the 'refusal to condemn' a plot to kidnap the Democratic governor of Michigan. The crowd chants, at Trump's outdoor rally in Ocala, came as the president campaigned in the southeast in a push to try to turn back his rivals expansive polling lead. Trump teed off on a report based on information gleaned from Hunter Biden's laptop, claiming it showed the Biden family is 'corrupt.'  'It’s the biggest story worldwide. It’s a corrupt family. And these people didn’t ask him one single question about it,' Trump said, complaining about a Thursday night town hall meeting on ABC where voters did not bring up the story with Biden during his prime time appearance. President Donald Trump called Joe Biden's family a 'corrupt family'...
    Donald Trump said Thursday during a town hall in Miami that he only posts about conspiracy theories on his Twitter because he wants people to be able to decide for themselves if it's true or not. He suggested that his tweets and retweets are not promotions of those conspiracies. Trump reposted a conspiracy earlier this week that the Navy SEAL team who took down Osama bin Laden actually killed his body double so the team was then killed by the Obama administration. 'That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody. And that was a retweet,' Trump said when he was questioned about the tweet during his town hall with NBC News Thursday evening. 'I'll put it out there. People can decide for themselves. I won't take a position,' the president continued. Town hall moderator, NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie, who started off the evening by interrogating the president on...
    NBC will not reschedule a town hall-style event in which President Donald Trump will take questions from voters, despite the exact same thing happening with Joe Biden in the same time slot, The Wrap reported. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the network sparked controversy this week when it announced that it would broadcast a question-and-answer session between the president and the American people on Thursday, September 15, at 8 p.m. Eastern. A similar event with Trump’s adversary, Joe Biden, was previously scheduled at the exact same time, albeit on ABC. Both events are taking place on the night that would have otherwise been the day of the second of three presidential debates. It was canceled after the format was switched to a virtual meeting, and Trump refused to participate. The phrase #BoycottNBC trended on social media after the announcement, with angry users complaining about the network giving Trump air...
    UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal joined Donald Trump, Jr. on his “Fighters Against Socialism” bus tour, as part of the younger Trump’s campaign to reelect his father. The tour made stops in Orlando, Coconut Creek, and Miami, Florida, and courted the vote of Hispanics, according to UFC news site BloodyElbow.com. “Since I was about knee-high, I’ve been hearing about the horrors of communism and socialism,” Masvidal said during one of the stops. “We either reelect president Trump and keep America great again, or we let Joe Biden and the radical left take us down the slippery slopes of socialism and misery.” “One of the things I see immediately — whether they call themselves socialists or not — is that this is the greatest country…because we have the greatest literature, which is the constitution,” Masvidal said. “And when people are trying to mess with the constitution, our amendments, I immediately hit...
    Although Donald Trump has claimed that the experimental drug Regeneron acted as a “cure” for his coronavirus, the CEO of the eponymous company, Leonard Schleifer, pushed back on such assertions during a Sunday interview on CBS’ Face the Nation. “So the president’s case is a case of one, and that’s what we call a case report, and it is evidence of what’s happening, but it’s kind of the weakest evidence that you can get,” he said of Trump’s claims. Schleifer then acknowledged that there were some”‘interesting aspects” of the president’s case, including his age, risk factors, and lack of immune system preparation. “But the real evidence has to come about how good a drug is and what it will do on average has to come from these large clinical trials, these randomized clinical trials, which are the gold standard. And those are ongoing.” While the CEO claimed that the drug...
    Vox editor Aaron Rupar took to Twitter on Sunday to suggest that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, should resign from his White House position and begin speaking out against Donald Trump. The comment was a response to a clip of ABC News’ Jon Karl opening Sunday’s segment of This Week by claiming that Trump has barred Fauci — along with other federal government medical experts — from appearing on the show, Axios reported. “We had hoped to talk to Dr. Fauci about both the outbreak at the White House and across the country,” he said. “He was more than willing to join us, but the White House wouldn’t allow you to hear from the nation’s leading expert on coronavirus. In fact, they wouldn’t allow any of the medical experts on the president’s own coronavirus task force to appear on this show.”...
    Jared Yates Sexton October 11, 2020 4:03PM (UTC) Last Sunday morning, the medical team supervising President Trump's care at Walter Reed Medical Center returned to the microphones to address misinformation they had divulged the previous day. The president's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, admitted he had obfuscated the fact that Trump had been administered oxygen and explained his misleading statements by saying he was "trying to reflect the upbeat attitude" of Trump and "didn't want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction…" This bizarre episode capped off a truly strange weekend in which the condition of the president of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, was puzzled over as one conflicting account after another battled for precedence. It was reminiscent of the propaganda-laden crises of authoritarian states and failed nations, times in which leaders were either perfectly...
    (CNN)The polls look awful for President Donald Trump. He's down by about 10 points nationally and in almost all of the swing states to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Trump's first debate performance was widely panned, and he needs a lot to go right the rest of the way.

    Tom Conway October 10, 2020 9:59AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Independent Media Institute. As a union griever, Jason Haynes fought constant battles against employers ever ready to cheat workers out of overtime pay and other hard-earned benefits. He's also seen firsthand how greedy corporations and their Republican cronies relentlessly erode labor protections at the state and national levels, making it increasingly difficult not only for Americans to organize but for union members to exercise long-held rights. : Now, Haynes fears the addition of anti-worker Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the right-wing-dominated Supreme Court will help the rich tighten their stranglehold on working people. Donald Trump nominated Barrett to weaponize the nation's most important court against ordinary Americans. Her confirmation would give the court's right-wingers a 6-3 majority. And because she refuses to adhere to precedent, Barrett could provide a crucial vote on cases potentially overturning organizing rights, rolling...

    Things got pretty animated during the mostly muted vice presidential debate Wednesday night during an exchange between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence on President Donald Trump and the military. Harris went after Trump for comments he’s made publicly about John McCain, the alleged comments he made disparaging soldiers from the now-infamous Atlantic report, and the reports about alleged Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers. Pence shook his head as Harris cited the Atlantic report and said, “This is very important, when you want to talk about who is the current commander in chief and at what they care about and what they don’t care about.” Page started to move on but Pence jumped in and said, “I really have to respond that.” The moderator tried to move on and said, “I’m sorry, Mr. Vice President, you’ve had more time than she has had so far.” Pence kept going to respond...

Are we going to close down our Country?” He continued, “No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!” Flu season is coming up!

    Brexit leader Nigel Farage has cited President Trump’s ability to turn setbacks into victory in his assessment of the present state of the race, particularly casting doubt on the state of polling. The former member of the European Parliament, who succeeded in his long-stated aim of making his own job redundant by leading Britain in voting to leave the European Union in 2016, is regarded as the closest British politician to President Trump. Speaking on BBC Radio 2 on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Farage reflected particularly on the present state of polling for the forthcoming general election, comparing both the strong polling Hillary Clinton enjoyed before her defeat in 2016, as well as the general mainstream consensus that Trump would definitely lose.

    Union bosses in the swing state of Pennsylvania admit they are struggling to convince their rank-and-file members to vote against President Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports: Union officials conceded they are concerned about whether the rank-and-file will honor those endorsements. … Likewise, union officials are asking members to put their employment ahead of other concerns they may have about the Biden-Harris ticket and fears they might support limits on gun rights. … “Like Trump said (Tuesday) night: The president has done more for America in 47 months than Biden has in 47 years,” said [Rep.

    When President Donald Trump used the phrase "Stand back and stand by" in reference to the white nationalist group known as the Proud Boys during his September 29 "debate" against former Vice President Joe Biden, Susan Polis Schutz was appalled — and for good reason. The mother of Governor Jared Polis is also a filmmaker, and she's spent most of 2020 completing Love Wins Over Hate, a documentary examining the rise of racist organizations in the U.S. through conversations with former members trying to make amends for their past actions by helping others grow beyond their biases, too. The film is already appearing on PBS stations across the country and will debut on two Denver outlets in the coming days. "I'm still reeling from it," Polis Schutz says of Trump's statement. "It was a nightmare. It was so horrible.... He was trying to couch his enthusiasm for them in words...
    Colorado politicians are pushing back against a rumored Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation that could hit Denver before the election. “The President’s proposed ICE raids are intended to incite fear for political gain," says Representative Joe Neguse. "His attempts to demonize immigrants will not work in Denver, and will not work in Colorado. We need humane and comprehensive immigration reform, not an administration that cruelly rips people away from their homes and their families." On September 29, the Washington Post reported that the Trump administration was preparing an "immigration enforcement blitz" focusing on cities that have adopted so-called sanctuary policies. The "sanctuary op" would begin in California, likely in early October, and then expand to other places, including Denver, according to the Post piece.Related Stories House Subcommittee Report Takes Aim at Aurora Immigrant Detention Facility Asian Americans Protest ICE Head Tony Pham, Vietnamese Refugee Detainee Transfers Lead to COVID-19 Increase at Aurora...
    Former FBI Director James Comey Defended the Russia probe during Senate testimony as done by the book 'in the main' as he faced angry criticism from Republicans in the final weeks before Election Day. He was repeatedly questioned by lawmakers about ex British intelligence officer Chris Steele's 'golden showers' dossier, as well as alleged FBI misconduct during the probe. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, a Trump loyalist, complained that the FBI used the dossier 'over and over and over' again even though they found it 'fundamentally unsound.

    (CNN)There's a revolution happening within the GOP right under our noses.The latest sign came Sunday, when former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge penned an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer making clear his intent to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in November. "He lacks the empathy, integrity, intellect and maturity to lead," Ridge, who also served as the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in the Bush administration, wrote of Trump.Ridge joins fellow Bush Cabinet secretaries Christine Todd Whitman (EPA), Ann Veneman (Agriculture), Carlos Gutierrez (Commerce) and Colin Powell (State) as Biden endorsers. Ray LaHood, a former Republican congressman from Illinois, and Chuck Hagel, the former Nebraska Republican senator, both of whom served in the Obama Cabinet, have also backed Biden.And that's just Republicans who served in a presidential Cabinet!

    Chauncey DeVega September 28, 2020 11:00AM (UTC) A healthy democracy is impossible without a common understanding of truth and empirical reality. This is why Donald Trump and other authoritarians systematically assault the legitimacy of the press (as the "enemy of the people" and "fake news"), higher education, teachers and educators (as indoctrinators in "cultural Marxism" and "political correctness"), scientists and other experts ("elites" who are part of a "deep state" plot) as well as truth-tellers more generally. Writing at The Guardian, Michiko Kakutani warns: "With Trump, the personal is political, and in many respects he is less a comic-book anomaly than an extreme, bizarro-world apotheosis of many of the broader, intertwined attitudes undermining truth today, from the merging of news and politics with entertainment, to the toxic polarisation that's overtaken American politics, to the growing populist contempt for expertise." : In his bestselling book "On Tyranny," historian Timothy Snyder expresses similar...
    President Donald Trump criticized the media and Democrats at a press conference on Sunday for anti-Catholic bias demonstrated in their coverage of his Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. “I think it’s horrible what they’re doing. They’re playing the religious card, and it’s frankly — they’re talking about Catholics; its a very major religion in our country,” Donald Trump said during a press conference on Sunday. The president specifically referred to an opinion article in the New York Times claiming that critics had a point when they questioned Barrett’s Catholic faith as a problem with the “national ethos” of American democracy. The president turned to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, noting that they were also Catholics in public life. “It’s obvious what they’re doing,” Christie said. “She’ll be strong, she’ll be tough, and she’ll stand up for what she believes in.”...
    Joe Biden spoke Sunday framing the upcoming Supreme Court battle as one with significant consequences for Americans’ health care. The former vice president said President Donald Trump and the Republican party “see an opportunity to overturn the Affordable Care Act on their way out to door” in the midst of “the worst global health crisis in a century.” He brought up how the Trump administration is trying to get the Supreme Court to strike down the ACA and said, “President Trump can claim all he wants he’s going to protect people with preexisting conditions, but the fact is he’s already fighting to take those protections away as we speak.” He said Trump is going to “steal away the vital protections of the ACA from countless families” that continue to rely on it and even brought up the president’s tweet this morning: Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better,...
    A group tied to the Republican Party’s top state-level political outfit has done something almost unheard of this close of a presidential election: they’ve taken out an ad attacking a key policy plank of their own party’s president. The ad doesn’t mention Donald Trump by name. But the target is clear: a new drug price proposal that the president has made a cornerstone of his pitch to eldely voters. So too is the sponsor’s allegiance. In airing the spot, the State Government Leadership Foundation doesn’t hide the fact that they’ve taken the side of a top pharmaceutical trade group—one that happens to have given their network millions of dollars in support—in its dispute with Trump over the measure.

The most we can have is ten people,” he said, referring to the coronavirus restrictions limiting the size of crowds. “But why don’t we just call it a protest, because this is a protest. It’s a protest against stupidity.” The president spoke at an airport rally in Bemidji, Minnesota, outdoors near an airport hanger with a big crowd of supporters. He said: Please remember. This is not a rally. You’re not allowed to have political rallies of any kind, you’re not allowed to go to church, you’re not allowed to anything. The only thing you’re allowed to do is run wild through the streets, burn down storefronts, blow up stores, and kill people, because that’s considered a protest. Trump said that...

Amy Dorris, then 24, said the alleged sexual assault happened outside the bathroom in his VIP box, says a report. 2Ex-model Amy Dorris pictured at a magazine launch in 2001 Who is Amy Dorris?

The Guardian reports that Trump was aged 51 and married to Marla Maples, his second wife, at the time. Dorris's modelling career was based in Miami - where she also picked up the...
    CDC Director Robert Redfield has walked back his Senate testimony that masks work better against COVID-19 than vaccines, after Donald Trump called him 'confused' and 'mistaken' and dismissed his claims a vaccine will not be available until next year. Redfield told a Senate committee Wednesday 'this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine' and said a vaccine wouldn't be widely available to Americans until the second quarter of 2021.   Hours later Trump hit back at Redfield saying the CDC head was 'confused' and must have 'misunderstood' the question being asked of him. The president said he had called Redfield to set the record straight and said the CDC boss had agreed he 'answered that question incorrectly' about the masks.   Redfield responded on social media Wednesday evening, where he appeared to bow to pressure from the president insisting 'I 100% believe in...
    Bradley Cortright September 14, 2020 0 Comments Michael Caputo, the assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), claims that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a “resistance unit” that is working to undermine President Donald Trump. In a Facebook Live video on Sunday, Caputo — who is the top communication official at HHS — claimed without evidence that government scientists at the CDC are plotting against the president and engaging in “sedition,” according to The New York Times. “There are scientists who work for this government who do not want America to get well, not until after Joe Biden is president,” Caputo said. He continued to claim that they “haven’t gotten out of their sweatpants except for meetings at coffee shops,” where they discuss “how they’re going to attack Donald Trump next.” He also said they “walk around like...
    The top communications official at the Health and Human Services Department warned in a bizarre Facebook Live session that political opponents 'are going to have to kill me' and claimed Democrats are plotting an armed insurrection. Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaing official, issued the warnings after publication of a Politico story Friday that indicated Caputo and other political appointees were pressuring Centers for Disease Control officials to alter weekly coronavirus reports. 'You understand that they're going to have to kill me, and unfortunately, I think that's where this is going,' he said, the New York Times reported on his Facebook live post.  'If you carry guns, buy ammunition, ladies and gentlemen, because it's going to be hard to get,' warned Health and Human Services communications advisor Michael Caputo 'And when Donald Trump refuses to stand down at the inauguration, the shooting will begin,' he said. 'The drills that...
    President Donald Trump started his Monday in a tweet storm rage that included a cast of his old foes - special counsel Robert Mueller and his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton.  Staying at his Trump hotel in Las Vegas, the president made no mention of his campaign rallies held over the weekend or the wildfires in California he'll be visiting later in the day, but, instead focused on a report that members of Mueller's investigative team had their phones wiped. Trump encouraged the Justice Department to look into the matter and to expand the probe to Clinton's emails, which were deleted from a private server she used as secretary of state. 'SPEED!' he demanded.  President Trump tweeted in rage against a report that Robert Mueller's team had their phones wiped after investigation President Trump demanded the Justice Department investigate former special counsel Robert Mueller (left) after a report...

    ATLANTA — Democrat Kevin Van Ausdal abruptly ended his longshot campaign for Congress on Friday against Marjorie Taylor Greene, a move that gave the controversial Republican an even clearer shot at a seat in the U.S. House.Van Ausdal released a statement that cited “personal and family reasons” for quitting the 14th Congressional District race and moving out of the state. The campaign declined to share further details about the sudden announcement, though a spokesman said he and his staffers didn’t receive any threats to drop out.“Although all the details will remain my family’s alone, please … Read More [...] This Raw Story article is free to Alternet ad-free members.

    On Labor Day, traditionally opening the last, intense phase of the presidential elections, the Democratic White House candidate, his running mate Kamala Harris and Donald Trump’s right-hand man, Mike Pence, traveled to two states called to play a key role on November 3: Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. As if he did not want to stay on the sidelines, the tempestuous Republican leader, preceded by Joe Biden in the polls, summoned him by surprise to a press conference at the White House. Struck by the Covid-19 pandemic which has killed more than 185,000 and brought the economy to its knees, the United States is also shaken by a historic protest movement against racism and police violence, which sometimes degenerates into riots. And by pro-Trump protests, like the one held Monday in Portland, Oregon, where more than 300 vehicles marched. A potentially explosive cocktail, as in recent rallies...
    Donald Trump could soon have the United States Department of Justice defending him against a defamation suit filed against him by E. Jean Carroll if a motion filed on Tuesday is accepted by the judge overseeing the case. Dan Berman of CNN wrote that if Trump does get a defense team that is funded by the taxpayers, it would likely be unprecedented. Caroll has accused Trump of committing sexual assault on her and the administration is claiming that while that alleged assault happened when he was a private citizen, the comments he made that led to the lawsuit happened while he was in office. When Trump was asked about the claims that he sexually assaulted the woman in the dressing room of the Bergdorf Goodman’s he said the allegations were totally false. He also claimed he’d never met her in his life. The potential change in attorneys for Trump isn’t...
    DONALD Trump says he is against schools teaching the 1619 Project as it looks to "change history" and that he "doesn't believe in cancel culture". The New York Times' 1619 Project is a Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of essays and photos that argues the United States was born in 1619, not 1776. 2Donald Trump says he is against schools teaching the New York Times' 1619 projectCredit: Rex Features 2The President said schools who taught the project would be defunded Trump was asked about the project reportedly being incorporated into lesson plans in California schools. The President said: "I want everybody to know everything they can about our history. I am not a believer in cancel culture, the good or the bad, if you don't study the bad it could happen again. So I do want that subject studied very carefully and accurately. "But we grew up with a certain history and...
    Former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer appeared on CNN on Sunday and claimed that Michael Cohen could likely provide evidence to support the recent accusations against Donald Trump in his book, Raw Story reported. “I think Michael Cohen may very well have some proof,” she said of the claims in Disloyal: A Memoir. “Because he is an attorney. And he doesn’t come to us, you know, with a clean slate. But everything that he says rings true. If you have a heartbeat and a pulse, you’ve seen this president, you’ve heard this president, it sounds like him.” Among the many allegations in the memoir is the claim that Trump made disparaging remarks about former South African leader Nelson Mandela, NDTV reported. According to Cohen, after Mandela passed in 2013, Trump accused the late leader of turning South Africa into a “sh*thole.” “F*ck Mandela,” Trump allegedly said. “He was no leader.” Boxer...
    Michael Cohen has said Donald Trump is 'guilty of the same crimes' that landed him in a federal prison, after the former fixer pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.  In his upcoming tell-all memoir the president's former personal lawyer has offered a blow-by-blow account of Trump's alleged role in a hush money conspiracy involving porn star Stormy Daniels.   Cohen, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations, calls himself the 'star witness' of the scandal that still could culminate in charges for Trump after he leaves office.  He described his new book, Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, as a 'fundamental piece of evidence' of the president's guilt. The memoir bookshelves Tuesday, despite his currently serving out a three-year federal prison sentence.   The White House called Cohen's memoir 'fan fiction.' 'He readily admits to lying...
    A veteran political operative who pioneered an extremely shady electioneering tactic on behalf of some of the nation’s most prominent Republicans is on a new mission—to use that tactic to defeat a Republican president. Steve Goldberg says he’s founded a new super PAC, Express Yourself, that is calling voters in key swing states to ask whether they believe “Jesus Christ would approve or disapprove of the nicknames Donald Trump gives to people that are mean [and] hurtful.” The calls also attempt to frame a potential Trump victory as a loss for Republicans; if Trump prevails, they claim, Democrats will retake the U.S. Senate and sweep a radical into the White House in 2024. Goldberg claims the effort is all about chipping away at Trump’s base of Republican support. “My agenda is to blow up Donald Trump. I don’t give a shit about Joe Biden,” he told The Daily Beast in...
    The Homeland Security Department has warned in a new intelligence bulletin Thursday that Russia is seeking to 'amplify' attacks on the nation's mail-in voting system as part of its influence campaign. News of the bulletin broke Thursday, a day when President Donald Trump once again attacked mail-in voting, as he has been doing for months. The president urged followers to vote by mail and then go to their polling place on election day and vote if their prior vote was not yet tabulated due to the 'massive number' of unsolicited and solicited ballots. The bulletin was titled: ''Russia Likely to Continue Seeking to Undermine Faith in U.S. Electoral Process.'  A new Homeland Security bulletin warns that 'Russia Likely to Continue Seeking to Undermine Faith in U.S. Electoral Process' through attacks on mail-in voting 'We assess that Russia is likely to continue amplifying criticisms of vote-by-mail and shifting voting process amidst...
    Meaghan Ellis September 3, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign manager, Bill Stepien, is weighing in with his concerns about the methodology used to determine poll results. On Thursday morning’s segment of “Fox & Friends,” co-host Brian Kilmeade noted that Fox News’ latest poll projects Trump trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden among “likely voters” in three key battleground states: Arizona, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Despite Fox News’ poll signaling trouble for Trump campaign, Kilmeade said a recent Monmouth poll signals a “consistent gain” for Trump in Pennsylvania. The president is now trailing by only 4 points as opposed to the previous 13-point deficit. When asked if the polls are different compared to the information he looks at, Stepien immediately expressed his disapproval as he said, “Very different. I love Fox News, I love you guys. I don’t love your polls.” Fox host Steve...
    Mark Zuckerberg said he's had personal conversations with President Donald Trump about the rhetoric he posts on Facebook, telling him that some of it was 'problematic.'  'I have had certain discussions with him in the past and where I've told him that I thought some of the rhetoric was problematic. If I did talk to him, you know, be clear about how - just the importance of making sure that people have confidence in the election,' Zuckerberg told CBS' 'This Morning.'  His revelation of his conversations with the president - who has been accused of fanning the political flames with his heated postings on social media - comes as Facebook announced a new series of measures Thursday to prevent interference in the November election.

    Country music star Kacey Musgraves said President Trump’s supporters are committing “an act of violence” against the gay and lesbian community if they vote for him. “If you love an LGBTQ+ person and you’re planning on voting for Donald Trump in November, that’s an act of violence against them,” she tweeted on Friday. To each their own but know what your vote means. pic.twitter.com/4T7OWmbtqS— K A C E Y (@KaceyMusgraves) August 29, 2020 Musgraves has made other liberal statements in recent years, standing out among the traditionally more conservative country music scene. In 2019, she took issue with the Second Amendment, urging Trump to enact gun control measures following mass shootings in New Mexico and Ohio. “For a man who clearly loves being well-liked, it’s indescribably mind-numbing to see him blatantly and murderously ignore doing ONE THING that would not only make people happy but would SAVE...
    Michael Cohen worked as Donald Trump's personal attorney and 'fixer' for more than a decade. The former Trump confidante, 54, once said he would 'take a bullet' for his boss.  But everything came crashing down in 2018 when Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for directing hush payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claimed they had affairs with Trump.  Cohen, who is now out on house arrest, is set to release his book Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump on September 8.  The book claims Cohen 'knows where the skeletons are buried' and labels Trump as a 'racist, sexist, homophobic, lying and cheating President'.  Here, Cohen pens for DailyMail.com why he believes Americans shouldn't vote for Trump in the 2020 presidential election, writing: 'I pray the country doesn’t make the same mistakes that I...
    On the third day of the Republican convention, which ends Thursday with the American president’s speech from the gardens of the White House, the threat of “socialism” was brandished relentlessly. In a speech against the backdrop of violence on the sidelines of anti-racist protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the “VP” painted a grim picture of an election where “law and order are at stake.” In difficulty in the polls ten weeks before the US presidential election, Donald Trump is counting on his vice-president to ensure, as in 2016, the mobilization of the religious right. “It is not really a question of knowing (…) if America will be more Republican or Democrat. The question posed in this election is to know if America will remain America”, launched Mike Pence. Paying tribute to the “courage” and “compassion” of the Americans, he denounced the vision in his eyes too dark put forward...
    Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell spoke Wednesday as part of the third night of the Republican National Convention. Speaking from his experience in the intelligence community and as ambassador to Germany, Grenell warned that electing former Vice President Joe Biden would mean electing another “Washington insider.” (RELATED: GLAAD Scolds Gay US Ambassador For Criticizing Buttigieg’s Attacks On Pence) WATCH: “As U.S. Ambassador to Germany, I had a front row seat to Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ foreign policy. I wish every American could see how President Trump negotiates on their behalf,” Grenell began, adding, “I was proud to witness President Trump say to foreign leaders: ‘I don’t blame you for wanting America to pay for your security. I actually respect you for out-negotiating the presidents before me. But it stops with me. I won’t let the American taxpayer be taken advantage of.'” Grenell went on to praise...
