On Sunday, President Trump gave the crowd at the Daytona 500 a thrill when he flew Air Force One 800 feet over the crowd before he later served as grand marshal of the event. One commentator stated, “I have been to a lot of Daytona 500s, never have I felt the excitement and energy. We’ve got great racing on the track but we’ve got the president landing right now, the fans are pumped up, I mean, wow, what a day!”
But there was one person who seemed to have major problems with Trump’s actions and could not decide which emotional reaction to have when witnessing the event: former Congresswoman Katie Hill, who had to leave office in disgrace after the House Ethics Committee announced that it was launching an ethics investigation into allegations that Hill had an affair with a congressional staffer in violation of House Rules.
Hill tweeted her inability to multitask emotionally, “At a restaurant. Trump and a motorcade at the Daytona 500 comes on the TV. I literally don’t know whether to laugh or cry or scream or just sigh. All. We’re gonna go with all.”

At a restaurant. Trump and a motorcade at the Daytona 500 comes on the TV. I literally don’t know whether to laugh or cry or scream or just sigh. All. We’re gonna go with all.
Back in October, the House Ethics Committee stated, “The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Katie Hill may have engaged in a sexual relationship with an individual on her congressional staff, in violation of House Rule XXIII, clause 18(a). The Committee, pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a), has begun an investigation and will gather additional information regarding the allegations.”
After Hill resigned, radio host Joe Messina reported that Hill’s resignation was demanded by House Speaker Pelosi after Pelosi learned that staffers in Hill’s office confirmed her affair with Legislative Director Graham Kelly.

Intern Nathanael Neidhart discusses how millennial mindsets are affecting America’s greatness. History is important. And respect for our generational differences helps bridge those gaps and pass on the importance of our historical past. We’re losing alot of that.

President Trump’s appearance at the Daytona 500 has the Liberal Media going crazy. The lap in The Beast and the Air Force One 800 foot flyby were a HUGE hit to average Americans. Mainstream media, not so much!
Meanwhile, the Michael Bloomberg gaffs keep coming.
If Virginia Gov. Northam (Governor Blackface) were a Republican, he would have been lynched. Instead, he’s still in office and gets a pass. Virginia tabled the 2nd Amendment bills, for now. Tabling them means they can come back. Michael Bloomberg funded alot of anti-gun candidates across the country.
SOUTH BEND, Indiana, February 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― Twenty-four hundred eleven aborted babies, victims of abortionist Ulrich Kloper who were found on his property, were finally laid to rest yesterday in a state-sponsored funeral service.
Indiana attorney general Curtis Hill spoke at a funeral service at South Bend’s Southlawn Cemetery and Palmer Funeral Home for the 2,411 children whose bodies or body parts were preserved and stored by Kloper in his garage and the trunk of a car. The service began at 1:00 P.M.
Klopfer himself died on September 6, 2019 at the age of 79. His relatives discovered the majority of the human remains in 79 boxes while they were sorting through Klopfer’s belongings at his Crete, Illinois home. Later, more bodies were discovered in a car kept in Chicago.
According to the Daily Caller, Attorney General Hill said the infants could not be buried in the home states of their mothers because of their disintegrating condition.
He also said that by giving them a burial, “we fulfill our obligation as a state pursuant to law and conscience to the unborn babies whose lives were terminated in clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary, and South Bend.”
Hill called the discovery of the fetal remains “horrifying to anyone with normal sensibilities.” He also suggested that there is evidence that some of the unborn children were killed when they were in their third trimester.
Citizens for a Pro-Life Society (CPLS) wrote on its website that the victims could not be identified.
“Klopfer’s victims could not be identified due to the fact that sadly their bodies had decomposed so badly as they were aborted 18 years ago, and the medical records that were also discovered were so poorly kept,” the organization wrote.
“But that won’t stop us from standing up to recognize these children as our brothers and sisters. By burying them on Wednesday, the last work of mercy, [this] will be the first work of mercy these children will ever know.”
Men in Alabama would be required to get a vasectomy within a month of turning 50 or after having a third child under a bill introduced by a Democrat in the state House of Representatives on Thursday.
Rolanda Hollis, who represents Birmingham, said the proposed legislation, which she calls a “vasectomy bill,” came in response to the state legislature’s Human Life Protection Act, which was signed into law last year and banned almost all abortions in the state.
The Human Life Protection Act would make abortion legal only in cases where the life of the mother is in danger. Its implementation has been delayed by a federal court.
“The vasectomy bill is to help with the reproductive system,” Hollis wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “This is to neutralize the abortion ban bill. The responsibility is not always on the women. It takes 2 to tangle (sic). This will help prevent pregnancy as well as abortion of unwanted children.”
In another tweet, she said the purpose of the legislation was to “help men become more accountable.” Hollis’ proposal would require men to pay for their own procedures.
Under existing law, “there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” according to the proposal.
The bill was referred to the House judiciary committee on the same day proposed legislation known as the “Born Alive” bill was reintroduced in the Alabama House.
It would require a physician to “exercise reasonable care” to save a child born alive after an abortion or attempted abortion.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar is promising to tear down President Donald Trump’s border reforms that have almost stopped the northward flood of poor migrants into Americans’ workplaces, neighborhoods, and schools, and that have also raised wages and opened opportunities for sidelined Americans.
But Americans need immigrants, the Minnesota Democrat insists — without admitting migrants also force down wages and force up housing costs. In June 2019, she said:
Immigrants, they do not diminish America, they are America … we need to step back and talk about is the economic imperative here … We have a situation right now where we need workers in our fields and in our factories.
“We need workers,” Klobuchar told Fox News’ Bret Baier February 2019, without mentioning Minnesota wages jumped by five percent in 2018 amid the low unemployment rate. She continued:
I think we need to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and I look at this is not just a moral issue. I actually look at it as an economic issue. When you look at, in my state, we need workers for some of the jobs, especially in rural areas. We have a 2.8 percent unemployment rate.
“To me, this is an economic issue for our country,” Klobuchar told a February 19 Town Hall meeting hosted by CNN. She continued:
We have always been a country that is built by immigrants, right? We all have our stories in America. And I believe that immigrants don’t diminish America, that they are America. That means to me that we need to have comprehensive immigration reform, something I’ve long supported. And I view this, first of all, if you look around our country, something like around 70 of our Fortune 500 CEOs — this is a few years back — were immigrants … We have immigrants that have built this country.
Klobuchar repeatedly says immigration should provide employers with more workers while ignoring the supply-and-demand reality that worker shortages push up wages and force employers to buy more wage-boosting labor-saving machinery. For example, her plan for rural areas suggest that employers are entitled to get imported workers when Americans refuse to work for low wages:
Crazy Bernie Sanders is the old Santa Claus for Socialist. He went to Twitter with his list of free stuff that should be rights for all. Bernie list all of the free stuff every American should be entitled to. He says nothing about the cost or who is going to pay for it. But most likely the top 1% or the super rich, which includes many corrupt politicians.
“Every American, regardless of income (so do the super rich also get this free stuff?) is entitled to
The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
The right to quality health car (similar to Canada or Obamacare?)
The right to a complete education (at a Socialist indoctrination center of your choice)
The right to affordable housing (haven’t we had this program for 50 years? Its called the ghetto)
The right to a clean environment (is he going to get China and India on board with this?)
The right to a secure retirement (again haven’t we had this program for 50 years? Its called Social insecurity)
Twitter did not think much of Crazy Bernie’s free stuff list either see responses below.
Crazy Bernie Sanders said over the weekend that Trump is an “idiot” for being a climate change denier even though prominent scientist have said it is a scam. Free stuff should appeal to snowflake millinnials but we will see if Crazy Bernie gets a fair shot with Democrats this election.
Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D., N.J.) expressed frustration with her Democratic colleagues at a recent town hall, admitting they block legislation because they “don’t want to give the president a win.”
Speaking at a Livingston, New Jersey, town hall on Thursday, Sherrill revealed the “shockingly different mindset” of congressional Democrats who prioritize resisting President Donald Trump over passing legislation that could help their constituents.
“When I go, you know, I’ve gone up to people and said, ‘I need to get this piece of legislation passed,’ and they say ‘Oh yeah, we just passed it,'” Sherrill said. “I said, ‘Yeah, we just passed it. I need the Senate to pass it and I need the president to sign it,’ and they said ‘Well, we don’t want to give the president a win.'”
Sherrill’s comments contrast with Democrats’ longstanding criticism of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) for blocking Democratic initiatives in the Senate. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) unveiled a visual representation of McConnell’s “legislative graveyard” in June, accusing the Kentucky Republican of blocking legislation for political gain.
“Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself ‘The Grim Reaper.’ It’s part of his political campaign, it’s part of the pride he takes as leader of the Senate,” Pelosi said. “The Senate will certainly be hearing from the public on issues, values really, that have bipartisan support across America.”
According to National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Michael McAdams, Sherrill’s admission contradicts Democrats’ push for bipartisanship in the Republican-held Senate.
“Mikie Sherrill’s comments confirm that House Democrats would rather block President Trump from getting a win than deliver solutions for their constituents,” McAdams said. “Voters deserve better than this partisan hackery.”
Sherrill in 2018 became the first Democrat elected to her suburban New Jersey district, which Trump won narrowly in 2016, in more than 30 years. She will likely face Republican challenger and tax policy attorney Rosemary Becchi in November.
There’s no doubt that Pastor Robert Grant, Jr. delivered a stemwinder of a prayer during the opening session of the Virginia House of Delegates.
But when his prayer condemned abortion and defended traditional marriage – it was more than Democrats could stomach. Watch below.
Many lawmakers (including some Republicans) walked out of the chamber – one of them shouted, “Is this a prayer or a sermon?”
Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn, also a Democrat, brought down the gavel as the pastor continued to pray — and directed lawmakers to begin reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
“It was totally disrespectful to all of us, all of us in this House,” Del. Luke Torian, a Democrat, told FauquierNow.com.
“In many ways it felt like condemnation,” Del. Delores McQuinn told the newspaper.
Pastor Grant had every right to call out lawmakers who defending the killing of unborn and newly born babies. Infanticide is a crime — and a sin against God.
“I think that the statehouse belongs to all the citizens. And all the citizens have a voice,” Grant told the Virginia Mercury. “If it’s my turn to have a voice, and I am a pastor, what do you expect from me? If you don’t want to hear what a pastor has to say, then don’t invite one.”
The Post Millennial can report that one of the assailants who destroyed a College Republicans booth and assaulted a tabler at the University of California, Santa Cruz, has been identified as 23-year-old queer activist, Martina Martin, who also uses the name Artimus Martin.
On Feb. 7, Martin and another young woman were filmed vandalizing the booth at Quarry Plaza on the UCSC campus. Martin, who uses “they” and “them” pronouns, can be seen taking the lead on the attack by trying to forcibly yank a “Trump 2020” flag from Hayden Williams, who was tabling at the booth and was scheduled as a guest speaker later that day.
“This is a flag of white supremacy,” Martin says in the video, which has since gone viral after being uploaded this week. As the two tussle over the flag, chairs and items are knocked over before Martin shoves Williams to the ground. Martin then tears down the booth’s banner and spits on the Betsy Ross flag before fleeing from the scene with the accomplice, who had torn up a sign.
The video does not show what happened before the vandalism began but Dylan Temple, president of College Republicans at UCSC, says the incident started when Martin tried to steal a flag. He says the incident was immediately reported to campus police.
On Wednesday, Martin took to social media to claim credit for the vandalism. Responding to Williams on Twitter, Martin wrote: “I had three dudes on me at once and nobody could stop me lol.”
The billionaire presidential candidate has made “fixing inequality” his top priority, but comments he made at a high-powered Washington summit suggest otherwise.
Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg said in 2018 that raising taxes on poor people was a “good thing,” and that taking money from the rich was a bigger problem than income inequality.
The billionaire former New York City mayor has emphasized the need to tackle economic inequality as part of his election platform, listing tax policy and “economic justice for black America” as two key pillars of his election platform. He has also vowed to raise high income tax rates, impose a new tax on billionaires like himself, create jobs and “generational wealth for Black Americans,” and close tax loopholes used by the rich. Just last week, he wrote a New York Timesopinion piece headlined “Fixing Inequality is My Priority.”
But comments he made at a high-powered Washington summit in 2018 run counter to those goals and could end up complicating Bloomberg’s efforts to sell himself to Democratic voters.
“I think income inequality is a very big problem. But the bigger problem is, you can take money from the rich and move it over to the poor. If you do it too much then the rich stop producing and everybody loses,” he told International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde during a Q&A at the IMF’s Spring Meeting.
The comments were part of a lengthy response to a question about where future jobs will come from in the age of artificial intelligence. Bloomberg said policies like minimum wages hikes and taxes on the wealthy were impediments to job creation.
On the surface, California is an amazing place. As the former Republican Party Chairman and public speaker, I have traveled the state relentlessly for nearly 17 years and, I can assure you, the beauty and diversity of its landscapes are likely unparalleled in this country. But as the world is learning, there is more to the story — California is a ticking time bomb.
After decades of one-party rule by the Democrats, California is beset by serious problems. In the last several years, homelessness and rising crime have become California’s lead stories. Long before the media took notice of that, however, California became unsustainable with staggering amounts of public debt, including unfunded pensions and infrastructure deficiencies that top $2 trillion dollars.
Despite state government spending over $200 billion a year, California can’t even reliably deliver water to its people and farmers or even electricity to its people and businesses. Indeed, its new leading industry, high tech, recently delivered a harsh message to government leaders that if they cannot be assured of receiving reliable energy, they could not stay in California.
Of course, seeing the writing on the wall, thousands upon thousands of businesses, large and small have already left the state. They know of the tax increases that will be imposed on top of the already highest in the nation’s regulations and taxes. They simply don’t want to be around when that time comes.
That is not the whole story, however. For seven years in a row, California has seen more people leave for other states than have arrived from other states. Of those leaving, many are Republicans and conservatives.
That is not a new dynamic but it is becoming more prevalent and a fine point was put on it when a recent poll from UC Berkeley’s Institute of Governmental Studies published this polling headline: “Leaving California: Half of State’s Voters Have Been Considering This; Republicans and Conservatives Three Times as likely as Democrats and Liberals to be Giving Serious Consideration to Leaving the State”
Rep. Ayanna Pressley said she intends to “bring the fire” if Americans don’t adopt her political ideology during a conversation with NPR’s Democracy Now as part of the nonprofit organization Rising Majority’s conversation with “the Squad.”
“As I said when we were at the border, we’re going to keep telling and elevating these stories with the hopes that you will see the light,” said Pressley. “And if you don’t see the light, then we will bring the fire. That’s just how it progresses.”
Pressley made the comments in a panel discussion at Howard University in Washington with Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib, all Democrats. Each of the members has vocalized frustration with President Trump’s immigration policies, with Ocasio-Cortez comparing the border detention centers to “concentration camps.”
Trump refers to the group of congresswomen as the Squad for their collective progressive policy positions emphasizing “Medicare for all,” a federal $15 minimum wage, and social justice issues.
“I never want us to lose sight of one, the power of movement-building, but secondly, the power of storytelling,” said the Massachusetts Democrat. “The way that we change laws is when we change hearts and minds.”
Pressley, 46, is the least known of the four Squad members, but her profile has elevated recently after a “coming out” video in which Pressley revealed she suffers from alopecia. Pressley said she announced the news because she wanted “to be freed from the secret and the shame that that secret carries with it.”
She was harshly criticized for a since deleted tweet in which Pressley claimed that “1 out of 4 ppl in the world are locked away in cages in America.”
How can anyone get behind Michael Bloomberg after the ridiculous things he’s said and done? You know, like: raising taxes on poor people was a “good thing,” and that taking money from the rich was a bigger problem than income inequality. I thought the Left wanted to get Big Money out of politics? How do they justify this one with the piles of cash he’s spending and ads he’s buying blocking other candidates from being able to get them?
Xander Gibb, openly gay CONSERVATIVE Author and Talk Show host talks about the day’s events from his point of view.
Are the Oscars now a political show? I thought it was supposed to be an entertainment show.
Joe Biden says a vote for him will end climate change. How’s he going to work that out?!?
Trump is the first President who’s ever been named as the Grand Marshall of the Daytona 500. That shows he’s a man of the people.
Should we be concerned about Joe Biden? Does he have a legitimate health issue? He looked LOST earlier.
People in NYC have not forgotten how bad Bloomberg was.
Some things just aren’t real or true. So why can’t we talk about them?
Political professor, Wilfred Reilly is the author of “Taboo: 10 Facts You Can’t Talk About.‘ Well, you know that never stopped me before! Join Joe and Wilfred to discuss things we ain’t supposed to discuss!
BlackLivesMatter and the denigration of police perpetuated lies. The real question is, who did this and WHY?!?
1619 project would have you believe that black people built the entire country. Back then, Black people were only 8% of the population. That isn’t even realistic. Can we talk about FACTS?!?
Solution to the disagreements and disinformation spread: Don’t be cowards, tell the truth, and stick to facts.
Poor whites are the most overlooked population in our country.
Everyone should try to be a swing voter. Wherever you see corruption, you need to root it out, regardless of which Party it’s coming from.
Climate change is one of a number of moral outrages being used to justify communism. Climate may be changing, but it isn’t of apocalyptic proportions.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg told a pro-life Democrat at Fox News Channel’s Town Hall meeting that she has no place in today’s Democrat party.
Kristen Day, a 50-year-old member of Democrats For Life, asked if Mayor Pete would support more moderate language in the party platform to “ensure that the party of diversity and inclusion really does include everybody.”
Mayor Pete, who professes to be a Christian, said he stood by the platform’s current language — which supports late-term abortions. (How anyone can be a Christian and support killing a baby on its birthday is beyond me).
Moderator Chris Wallace asked Ms. Day if she was satisfied with the mayor’s response. She replied that she was not.
“The Democratic platform contains language that basically says that we don’t belong, we have no part in the party because it says abortion should be legal up to nine months, the government should pay for it,” she said. “There’s nothing that says people who have different views on this issue should be included in the party.”
She referenced the 1996 party platform that included such language.
“Would you be open to language like that – that really did say our party is diverse and inclusive?”
The mayor replied coldly that he supports the position of his party “that this kind of medical care needs to be available to everyone.”
Kudos to Chris Wallace for asking one of the most important questions of the evening – should pro-life Democrats overlook the issue or go find another party?
“At the end of the day, this is what I believe,” the mayor said – referring to the party platform and his personal beliefs.
n America, we celebrate democracy and are justifiably proud that this nation was founded on the idea that the people should rule.
That’s why it is so important that Americans be informed about their government. They are partakers in it. In fact, they control it.
Under tyrannical systems, it matters little if the people are informed about political life. Autocrats make decisions for them whether they like it or not. But in our republic, we rely on the informed decision-making of citizens to judge policies and the leaders who will implement them.
Unfortunately, we are not very well-informed.
According to a recently released survey, Americans are woefully uneducated about the most basic facts of our history to the point that most couldn’t even pass a basic citizenship test.
A recent study by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation found only one in three Americans can actually pass the US citizenship test, which asks the most basic questions about our history and how our system of government works.
Passing the test requires answering 60 percent of questions correctly, but a majority of those participating in the survey couldn’t even do that.
“With voters heading to the polls next month, an informed and engaged citizenry is essential,” Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation, said.
“Unfortunately, this study found the average American to be woefully uninformed regarding America’s history and incapable of passing the US citizenship test. It would be an error to view these findings as merely an embarrassment. Knowledge of the history of our country is fundamental to maintaining a democratic society, which is imperiled today.”
The survey listed some of the embarrassing answers given on the test:
Looks like a couple of Dems are concerned about a Bernie nominee because it could bankrupt the country and ruin our economy. Well, YEAH!
“The shocking discovery of 2,411 medically preserved fetal remains in Illinois, left in a garage and in the trunk of a car (of an abortionist), was horrifying to anyone with normal sensibilities,“ but now they’ve received “an appropriate resting place.” Not sure how the blue barrels of “medical waste” they use now is any better.
Bloomberg feels BAD for the way Trump is treating China?!? Are you kidding me?
Students say they could NEVER date a Trump supporter. I thought we were supposed to all get along?!?
Even California Democrat voters complain about the state of the state, but they keep voting Democrat. WHY?!? They complain about policies that were implemented when Reagan was governor. Those are ancient history and given that we’ve been under TOTAL DEM CONTROL for years, could have easily been changed. What’s the problem? Wake up people!!
Tensions over foreign policy in DC. They don’t like letting the President do his job!
