NRA Spox Dana Loesch Is Moving After Her Family Received Threats: This Underscores ‘Why I Carry’

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch is moving out of her home after she and her family have received threats from numerous gun control advocates. “It’s difficult to have an open house and sell your house conventionally when you’re still in it and you have a security threat- a security issue as well,” Loesch began. The conservative radio talk show host told Martha MacCallum that she used the #MeToo trend that dominated social media to share her story, posting a picture of her family’s belongings in garbage bags.

Former GOP Rep.: ‘We Might Be Better Off as a Republic’ If Dems Retake the House in 2018

Former Congressman David Jolly (R- FL) said on MSNBC tonight he has personally wondered if the country would be safer “if Democrats take over the House in 2018.” He told Lawrence O’Donnell he raised this issue with another Republican who had apparently been thinking “the same thing.” One of the issues, Jolly said, is that the Republican Congress hasn’t been doing anything to check Trump’s power. And once again, he said of the Democrats, “We might be better off as a republic if they take the House in 2018.” Watch above, via MSNBC.

Hannity: ‘If Mitch McConnell Can’t Do His Job, Go! Get Out!’

This afternoon, President Trump held a joint press conference alongside Mitch McConnell. But tonight, Sean Hannity made it clear he’s completely with Steve Bannon on the GOP needing a serious shake-up. Bannon is planning to primary a number of Republicans who are getting in the way of the Trump agenda. And so, hours after McConnell stood with President Trump, Hannity said the following:
“I’m with Steve Bannon in this sense. We can’t lose control of the House and Senate, but if Mitch McConnell can’t do his job, go! Get out! And let’s not elect people that aren’t bold and won’t fight to get the job done! What they did on health care was a disgrace.”
Sebastian Gorka agreed and said the GOP establishment has done “nothing” for the President. At least they know what to expect from the left, Gorka argued, but for Republicans to “betray” conservatives is a Continue reading "Hannity: ‘If Mitch McConnell Can’t Do His Job, Go! Get Out!’"

Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Blasts ‘Soulless Coward’ Trump Over Remarks on Obama, Military Families

Gregg Popovich went all in on Monday as he tore into President Trump and his false claim that Barack Obama and other past presidents never called the families of fallen military operatives. Popovich isn’t shy about his political opinions, having called Trump an embarrassment and a danger to America’s crucial institutions earlier this year. Today, after the president held his press conference with Mitch McConnell, the San Antonio Spurs coach called The Nation and offered a full-throttled denouncement of Trump:
“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically Continue reading "Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Blasts ‘Soulless Coward’ Trump Over Remarks on Obama, Military Families"

McCain Rails Against ‘Half-Baked, Spurious Nationalism’ in Liberty Medal Ceremony Speech

Senator John McCain was honored with the Liberty Medal earlier tonight, and he delivered a speech that seemed like it was directed at certain individuals in particular, even though he didn’t name names… McCain railed against “half-baked, spurious nationalism,” and got a lot of applause for that line. Per the transcript:
To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain “the last best hope of earth” for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to Continue reading "McCain Rails Against ‘Half-Baked, Spurious Nationalism’ in Liberty Medal Ceremony Speech"
