Joe Biden has always been a gaffe machine, but this time it seems different. He’s in the 9th inning of his political career, and doubt are rising as to whether he’s up to the task.

Poor BuzzFeed. Between the crappy reporting with the Russia investigation and laying off hundreds of employees, BuzzFeed now faces a revolt from those still employed over the fact that the publication will not provide the laid workers paid time off (PTO).

So far 513 employees have signed the letter addressed to CEO...

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that his legal team reached out to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office after BuzzFeed dropped a supposed bombshell that Trump told former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Giuliani said that both sides “agreed a significant portion of it was false.”

We have been here sooooooo many times before.

A media outlet publishes an article based on anonymous sources providing information that is so vague it cannot be proven or disproven, but which purports to (1) implicate Trump in a crime, (2) show collusion with the Russians, and/or (3) raise enough suspicions to...

Whether you call it the swamp, the deep state or the Washington, DC establishment, it was definitely out to get Trump following the 2016 election. He wasn’t supposed to win and he had angered some of the wrong people.

How else can this be explained? The Russian collusion conspiracy that Democrats and...

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, Paul Manafort is being prosecuted because of who he knows. I hope he walks, the...

Michael Cohen, the personal attorney for President Donald Trump, has filed two defamation lawsuits over the dossier against then-candidate Trump.

He filed the suit against Fusion GPS, which produced the dossier, in federal court and filed the suit against Buzzfeed, which published the dossier in January 2017, in state court.

It’s one fabulously nasty mess both CNN and Buzzfeed created for themselves.

Buzzfeed decided to publish an unsubstantiated dossier full of all kinds of licentious information about president-elect Trump, particularly that he has “deep ties to Russia”. CNN then ran with the Buzzfeed story.
