  • If Trump is innocent of collusion with Russia, what happens to the media?

    The Washington Examiner ^ | May 25, 2017 | Lisa Boothe
    With the investigation into Russia's interference in our election underway, the mainstream media has engaged in rampant speculation about President Trump's administration. Despite any evidence of collusion or an actual crime that has taken place, publications and networks have drawn comparisons to President Richard Nixon and Watergate. They have wildly and recklessly speculated about impeachment and obstruction of justice. But no one is asking the more likely question: What happens to the media if the president is innocent? The media is already suffering from a credibility crisis. Trust in the media is at an all-time low. And according to Gallup,...

    An Education Department watchdog says a Louisiana man has unsuccessfully tried to obtain President Donald Trump's tax information using an online student aid tool. Inspector General Kathleen Tighe told a House hearing Thursday that the attempt took place in September, several weeks before the presidential election. The man tried to access Trump's records with the help of a data retrieval tool used by college students applying for financial aid....

    President Donald Trump’s controversial senior advisor and speechwriter, Stephen Miller, has led White House efforts to undercut an initiative by Italy to place the migration crisis at the center of this week’s Group of Seven major summit meeting starting Friday in Sicily. For Italy, the summit in Taormina, Sicily, was to provide a poignant opportunity to raise awareness of the plight of hundred of thousands of refugees who cross the Mediterranean Sea to Italy’s shores each year, and to reach agreement on a plan to find them permanent homes....

    Memorial Day is fast upon us. To most Americans, it’s nothing more than a three day weekend bonanza of barbecues, beer, boating and the beach. Only seven percent of living Americans have ever served in the military and the other 93 percent seem to frolic and swig and eat on Memorial Day with very little regard for those who have given all that mortality can give. As Hack, the late Colonel David Hackworth once told me, ‘they’ll never understand; only we understand and we have the responsibility to remember them…forever.’ On this coming Memorial Day, let us pause and remember...

    Washington mavens have a new parlour game ­ called “impeachment & removal“. The game is all about devising new and innovative ways of putting President Donald Trump out to grass. But Trump has danced with Saudi leaders, eaten chocolate cake with Xi Jinping and burgers with Netanyahu, played golf with Abe and been blessed by the Pope. In a few weeks, it will be his turn to get the Modi hug. India has watched with apprehension as the Trump administration moved from being....
  • Planned Parenthood executives joke about decapitating fetuses in new video

    “You know, sometimes she’ll tell me she wants brain, and we’ll, you know, leave the calvarium till last, and then try to basically take it or, actually, you know, catch everything, and even keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn’t get lost,” Ms. Nucatola says. Ann Schutt-Aine, director of abortion services at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, says she’ll hold a fetus in place with forceps to prevent partial-birth abortions. “If I’m doing a procedure, and I’m seeing that I’m in fear that it’s about to come to the umbilicus, I might ask for a second...

    The 3.5 million high-net-worth individuals located in the Asia Pacific region makes the market increasingly important for the luxury sector, as the affluent group's appetite for high-end continues to grow.

    OK my friends: Montana has a small population. It means that advertising is cheaper and a Montana Senate victory would be more doable than a big-state turnover. Do we charge full speed ahead or wait for our strongest candidates to get off their asses and get motivated to run? ND is in the running also. While we are in the drivers seat, the GOP has no fight. Defeat from the jaws of victory. The stupid party.

    Republican Greg Gianforte muscled his way to victory in Montana, overcoming a challenge from Democrat Rob Quist and an election-eve scuffle with a reporter that led to criminal charges being filed against him. With 83 percent of the precincts counted, Mr. Gianforte led Mr. Quist by a 50.3 percent to 43.9 percent margin. Libertarian Mark Wicks had 5.8 percent of the vote. Undefeated in this year’s special congressional races after the election of President Trump, Republicans will now hold a 239-193 majority in the House. During the campaign, Mr. Gianforte embraced Mr. Trump, who won the state by more than...

I decided to share with everyone to show people on how fast a bear can charge attack an individual.’ The bear was not injured and the...
