New from Standing Rock Sioux and Native American rights groups on threat to block thousands of Native Americans from voting in North Dakota in this year's election:

After everyone from the White House press secretary to the vice president has vouched for his claim that "Middle Easterners" have infiltrated the caravan, Trump tells reporters he has no proof of “Middle Easterners” in there, but that there “very well could be.”

They murdered his Dad, dismembered his body, orchestrated a cover-up, lied about the murder, then lied about the cover-up...and now are forcing Khashoggi's son, who is a captive in his own country, to participate in a photo-op shaking hands with the prince who murdered his Dad.

This is a bit of a worry when the wife of a Supreme Court Justice is in the disinformation business.

Asked about Russian election meddling in Moscow, Bolton quotes an unnamed senior U.S. intelligence official telling him China's election meddling makes Russia look like the Junior Varsity... doesn't cite evidence of current Russia 2018 meddling cited in last week's DOJ complaint

Brian Kemp expressed at a ticketed campaign event that his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams’ voter turnout operation “continues to concern us, especially if everybody uses and exercises their right to vote.”

An increasing number of Georgia voters, especially minorities, are convinced that the Brian Kemp and Stacey Abrams election is rigged: “Everybody I speak to says, ‘I’m voting but why?' Even if Stacey wins, do you know Kemp’s in control of it?"

Geraldo Rivera Attacks Sean Hannity Over Immigration Stance: ‘Are You Gonna Shoot Em?’

The irony is there *could* have been a middle-class tax cut like the one Trump imagines, but he and GOP Congress decided to help corporations first. Not clear how reminding everyone of that fact helps the GOP now.

Body parts of Jamal Khashoggi have been found in the garden of the Saudi Consul General's home

"Why the migrant caravan is not a border crisis"

trade war. Why the food on your plate could decide key midterm races.

Complicated dynamic here in the Mississippi special but this is basically bad news for Democrats. There a 2 main Republican candidates and 1 Democrat; top two go to a runoff. The Republican (McDaniel) that the Democrat could beat is way behind and unlikely to make the runoff.

If the President would stop tweeting and actually read the U.S. Constitution, he’d realize that his own party has the majority in both chambers of Congress and that the “horrors taking place on the border” are happening on their watch!

Hi @RepHartzler I've been talking to your constituents for over a year. No one has seen you. No one has heard from you. Will you debate me? No. Will you hold a town hall meeting? No. Will you meet with voters, answer any questions on Twitter, Facebook or email? No!#VoteHerOut

Trump is making baseless claims about the migrant caravan. Here are the facts

The Trump administration has taken steps to broaden the availability of health plans that don’t have to cover patients’ preexisting medical conditions, signaling support for state proposals to promote sales of these skimpier plans

Trump said the threat was directed at Russia, China and “anybody else that wants to play that game.” We've got a certifiable MADMAN IN THE WH!! WE ARE NOT OPERATING WITH SENSE HERE EITHER.

President Trump claimed in a series of tweets that he would declare a "national emergency" over migrant caravans moving toward the United States through Central America and Mexico. Here's what to know.

The Supreme Court ruling blocking Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross from having to sit for a deposition is a victory for the Trump administration. SCOTUS IS LOST, AFTER TRUMP IS GONE, KAVNO AND GORSUCH MUST GO TOO!!!!

Tons of misinformation about the caravan floating around. This photo of a bloodied police officer has tens of thousands of shares on a few big FB pages. It was taken in 2012, and has nothing to do with the caravan.

Trump just said he's "one of the most popular presidents in this country"
