Sources further say that the Supreme Court notified Mr. Trump that the formal process of a case of impeachment against him was begun, before he departed the country on Air Force One.

Now, we’ve covered former British politician and current conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch before. She’s made a name for herself in recent months by diving headlong into the Russia/Donald Trump collusion story. While it should be pointed out that she has proven to be prescient in the past about certain things, one look at her Twitter timeline and website will give you the impression that EVERYONE is caught up in the Russia web, leaving her credibility, let’s just say, in question. In this vein, she published a blockbuster blog post today that claimed that she’s been informed by multiple sources that President Trump was notified just before his foreign trip that a case of impeachment had begun.
Over the past couple of weeks, Fox News has really amped up the outrage over mainstream media bias when covering President Donald Trump. With the White House being bombarded with bombshell after bombshell, Fox has tended to both ignore much of the bad news and complain about others outlets’ coverage. This decision appears to have hurt the bottom line, as ratings have sunk for the network, especially in prime time. However, amidst all the objections and media criticism, one thing may be lost on the FNC commentators and pundits doing the complaining — their network’s own coverage has been mostly negative. A new report from Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy on Trump’s first 100 days in office showed that, indeed, the vast majority of coverage of the president had had a negative tone. In fact, when analyzing the news stories published in major

signed an arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth up to $350 billion over a decade.

Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter is currently being detained in a Romanian airport after what he described as his passport being “canceled” by the Turkish embassy. He is blaming this action over his political views, claiming Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the one who is behind the action. The Turkish athlete had just come into Bucharest from Indonesia as part of a tour for his charitable foundation. According to The Oklahoman, he was planning on visiting at least seven countries before his detainment. In a video he posted to his Twitter account, he likened Erdogan to Hitler, calling him a “bad, bad man” and highlighting the recent controversy involving Erdogan’s bodyguards beating up protesters in Washington. According to ESPN, Kanter has been an outspoken critic of Erdogan and

President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week, his administration has had to deal not only with fallout from that, but also stories revolving around Trump’s disclosure of classified info to the Russians, Trump asking Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn and the president bashing Comey to the Russians, among others. And, oh yeah, the appointment of a special counsel in the Russia investigation. This morning, CNN host Michael Smerconish began his program by offering Trump some legal advice in the wake of the ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller being named as the special counsel. As Smerconish noted, this is “official statement” by Washington that if Continue reading "CNN’s Smerconish Gives Trump Some Legal Advice: ‘Stop Being Controlled By Impulse!’"
Recently, conspiracy theorist and InfoWars founder Alex Jones settled a lawsuit with yogurt giant Chobani after claiming there was a connecting between the company and refugees who raped a girl in Idaho. As part of his settlement, Jones had to retract those statements and issue an apology. Well, on The Late Show last night, host Stephen Colbert had himself a time at Jones’ expense. Pulling out his Tuck Buckford character — a direct Jones parody — Colbert mocked Jones’s apology by reeling off a number of crazed conspiracy theories Buckford apparently was forced to rescind due to court action. “I regret that I mischaracterized Virgin Airlines,” he said. “I do know now they do not use their planes to spray clouds of Viagra onto our nation’s playgrounds to incite an anti-government revolution of unstoppable middle-school sex warriors. My bad!” And the apologies continued. “Actor Jeff Goldblum is not a Continue reading "Colbert Lampoons Alex Jones Apologizing: ‘Jeff Goldblum Is Not a Robot Controlled By Islamic Field Mice’"
This afternoon, much like every other day this week, the White House was rocked with another bombshell. In a pair of blockbuster stories that hit minutes apart, it was reported that President Trump called recently fired FBI Director James Comey a “nut job” during his Oval Office meeting with Russian officials and a White House official is a person of interest in the Russia probe. It was also noted during the Russian meeting that Trump indicated the Russia investigation was the reason he fired Comey. During a CNN panel discussion, CNN political commentator Amanda Carpenter lit into the president and conservatives for constantly claiming there is no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia now that we have these new reports. “And I know the White House is going to come out and say their stock line to every question about this investigation is that there’s no evidence of collusion,” Continue reading "CNN’s Amanda Carpenter: Trump Trashing Comey to Russians Sounds an ‘Awful Lot Like’ Collusion"
