    Former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner wept on Friday as he pleaded guilty in federal court to sending sexually explicit messages to a teenage girl, ending an investigation into a "sexting" scandal that played a role in last year's U.S. presidential election.Wearing a navy-colored suit, maroon tie and his wedding band, a tearful Weiner, 52, described his conduct before U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in New York City."I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse," Weiner said, apologizing to the 15-year-old girl to whom he sent sexually explicit images and messages last year.The charge of transferring obscene material...

    Jeffrey Toobin pretty much let the cat out of the bag about the real desired purpose (by the Democrats and the mainstream media) of the investigation by the new Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the May 19 New Yorker. He pretty much concedes that there is a good possibility that no criminal evidence of collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russians will be found. What he reveals, and it is no big surprise to anyone who follows politics, is that the information collected during the course of this investigation could be politically damaging to President Trump if it...

    Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most recognizable people on the planet. She’s also 26 years old, and like most 26 year olds, she enjoys acting like an idiot with her friends. Unlike most 26 year olds, though, star can’t go anywhere in public without someone recording her. While hanging out at the Beverly Hills Club (or as Radar Online put it, a “Euro-trash strip club”) Lawrence was filmed “riding a stripper pole, spanking herself with dollar bills, and SO much more!” imagine the scene from Silver Linings Playbook where Lawrence dances to the White Stripes’ “Fell in...

    President Donald Trump is under fire after an explosive report in the New York Times quoted a memo from former FBI Director James Comey indicating Trump had asked him to cease the federal investigation into Michael T. Flynn. The memo was allegedly penned after a meeting Comey had with Trump in February, with Comey writing in the memo afterwards that Trump said “I hope you can let this go,” in regards to the Flynn investigation. The meeting occurred the day after Flynn resigned. The usual chorus of Democrats (i.e. all of them) are calling for impeachment in response to the...

    The year 2016 was catastrophic for Turkey. At least 30 terror attacks across the country took more than 300 lives.[1] Ankara survived a bloody military coup attempt in July, which claimed the lives of an additional 290. In a massive purge that ensued, more than 100,000 civil servants, academics and journalists across the political spectrum were either sacked or detained.[2] The economy was downgraded by nearly all of the major credit-rating agencies.[3] The military formally joined the Syrian civil war, primarily to carve out a long-desired “safe zone” across the border. And, in a historic moment in December, a Turkish...

    The dean of a school system in the Gaza Strip who was appointed to his post by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas continues to spread classic anti-Semitic libels on official PA television, Palestinian Media Watch reported Tuesday. Imad Hamato, who has long given classes on Islam on PA television, was appointed by Abbas to head the Gaza-based Al-Azhar school system, which prepares students for Gaza’s Al-Azhar University. “Hamato now has the opportunity to transmit his venomous anti-Semitism to Palestinian youth,” PMW observed. In a lesson broadcast last week, Hamato said, “They [the Jews] are usurers. See, the usury money and...

    Laws in some European countries that impede migrant children from reuniting with their families or force them to leave when they turn 18 create a “huge security risk” by potentially turning young people to crime and extremism, the chief of Europe’s top human rights body said Friday. Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland said such laws compel many young migrants facing uncertain futures to flee, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation from human traffickers who could push them into crime or the illicit sex trade. “This is causing a huge security risk for Europe,” Jagland said during an interview with...

There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance). Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey. Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump. Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good...

    Blood is in the water as the left has reached a the high point of the impeachment feeding frenzy. Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, said the president did not divulge “sources and methods” to the Russians. McMaster noted on Tuesday that a Russian airliner was blown up by Islamic terrorists in October 2015, and suggested a mutual concern took over the meeting. But the media and Democrats, pretending to be born-again, anti-Kremlin security hawks, threw a major hissy fit. There is no denying the Trump revelation to Russia may be serious — yet it may also be...

    On the left, there is obsessive talk of impeaching Donald Trump. Despite the fact that the press reports which supposedly form the foundation of such talk are almost always based on anonymous sources, and despite the fact that the Trump administration has successfully refuted most if not all of them, the obsession continues. On his Wednesday night show, after successfully swatting away pathetic pro-impeachment arguments made by guest Krystal Ball and her citations of weak-kneed Republicans who can't seem to resist bending with the Beltway wind, Tucker Carlson got fed up. The segment (posted in full here) opened with a...
  • Star Trek: Discovery trailer (looks like PC run amok)

    New look at the new Trek incarnation. Overall it looks like a PC mess. White men are almost an after-thought. An overtly gay man on the bridge. Set a decade before TOS. Of course, CGI is many iterations ahead of what has come before and it looks gorgeous. Said to be broadcast worldwide on pay-for-TV CBS offshoot. May explain why the characters are World Government types. Show was due January 2017. Then summer, 2017. Now -- who knows? The original show runner quit and show has been turned-over to others. Casting reportedly still incomplete. Like other Trek fans I am...

    How to Solve the Palestinian Problem …and bring peace to the Middle East. May 19, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. In 1990, there were half as many Palestinians as Kuwaitis in Kuwait. Two years later there were almost none. With the support of the international community, some 700,000 Kuwaitis expelled hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their country. If they had not done it, basic arithmetic shows that the Palestinians would have outnumbered Kuwaitis in Kuwait in a generation. The Palestinians of Kuwait...

    Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials. Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women's Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort to...
