Fox’s Judge Jeanine: If the devil had dirt on an opponent I’d be ‘on the first trolley to Hell’

Published

on

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro said on Sunday made an interesting admission with regards to her morals around electoral help from hostile foreign powers or other unsavory sources.

The Hill reported that Pirro said she would ride “the first trolley to Hell” if the devil had incriminating information on a political rival.

Pirro was defending the actions of President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr. who met with a Kremlin-aligned Russian Lawyer and a Russian-born lobbyist along with the top brass of the Donald Trump 2016 campaign staff.

“This hysteria has nothing to do with Russia and everything to do with Donald Trump,” Pirro said, “their hatred, their intolerance, their venom for him. And if it doesn’t stop, then the Democrats alone will be responsible for the demise of a workable and effective government for the people.”

She went on, ““As someone who’s run for office five times, if the Devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent, I’d be on the first trolley to Hell to get it.”

She added, “And any politician who tells you otherwise is a bald-faced liar.”

“There is no law that says a campaign cannot accept information from a foreign government,” she insisted.

However, The Federal Election Campaign Act stipulates, “Federal law prohibits a foreign national from directly or indirectly making a “contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election[.]” 52 U.S.C. § 30121(a)(1)(A), and prohibits a person from soliciting, accepting or receiving such a contribution or donation from a foreign national, id. a § 30121(a)(2).”

The term “thing of value” is the key element of the statute here, which courts have ruled can include information about a political opponent, meaning that if anyone on or related to the Trump campaign received opposition research information from a foreign national, they have placed themselves in legal jeopardy.

Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
