    Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday took responsibility for all her decisions during the 2016 campaign, but then said those decisions were not why she lost. "Look, I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost, so I think it's important that we learn the real lessons from this last campaign," Clinton said during a question and answer session at the 2017 Code Conference. She then discussed how the Russians were out to to influence the American elections, the economy, and unity within the United States. This is not the first time that...

    Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told employees that President Donald Trump was creating "chaos" that was hurting the U.S. economy, according to a video obtained by Business Insider. The video was taken at a staff meeting in Seattle in February, Business Insider said. In the video, Schultz tells employees that there is "a tremendous amount of pressure and anxiety in America." He goes on to speculate that these feelings are hurting consumer behavior. Schultz went on to tell employees that the coffee chain can provide "an antidote" by providing a "sense of community" to its customers. Starbucks replied to a...

    <p>Members of President Trump’s inner circle charged Sunday that former CIA director John O. Brennan is trying to undermine the relationship between the new administration and the intelligence community on his way out the door.</p> <p>Escalating the war of words on Sunday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Mr. Brennan is beginning to sound like a “partisan political hack” with his repeated public criticisms of the new president after the former director reportedly called Mr. Trump’s postinaugural visit to the CIA’s Langley headquarters a “despicable display of self-aggrandizement.”</p>

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed Friday night at a performance of the Broadway hit “Hamilton.” Pence was walking to his seat at the Richard Rodgers Theatre when a few scattered claps turned into a thundering chorus of boos. The crowd continued to mock Pence throughout the performance, including during the song “Yorktown,” when Alexander Hamilton and Marquis de Lafayette sang “Immigrants, we get the job done.” They high-fived each other as the audience cheered. Brandon Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, addressed Pence after the curtain call, saying the diverse cast is “anxious” about his administration.

    On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul, a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, took some questions on a livestream about his campaign. One of the questions he fielded was one that was the third-most popular on Google, which was, “Is Rand Paul still running for president?” “Uh, I don’t know,” Paul replied. “Wouldn’t be doing this dumbass livestreaming if I weren’t. So yes, I still am running for president. Get over it.”

    In my May 31, 2011 article titled “Our First Lady: Bitter Harridan,” I wrote that in her Princeton thesis Michelle Obama lamented: “I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus – as if I really don’t belong.” She [specifically] complained that whites made her feel “black first and a student second.” Therein is the true elephant in the room of which the majority of America appears oblivious. Blacks by their own insistence have reduced themselves to a...

    Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, appeared on NPR’s The Diane Rehm Show on Tuesday November 11, to promote his new book "The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House." During his appearance, the NBC host defended Obama’s 2008 speech in which then-candidate Obama claimed “bitter Americans” “cling to guns or religion.” Todd argued that Obama’s “just observing the way an anthropologist would observe a society.” Todd’s defense of Obama came in response to a caller to the show who argued: One asks why Obama is so aloof, so cool, so withdrawn,

    Hey, fellow Freepers. I have to be honest. I am very disappointed and downbeat that Romney did not get elected, and I won't be a sore loser. We should just be better prepared for the war in 2014, and especially for 2016. However, I trolled on Huffington Post and Bill Maher's Facebook page, and to be truthful, I have never seen so many SORE WINNERS as the Obama people...you should be euphoric and jubilant! Why are you so angry? Your guy won! Why all the threats and anger and bitterness. Obama is in for four years and you act like...

The same day Willard Romney begins his new round of personal attacks to stop Newt Gingrich's rise in the polls in the South Carolina primary, the Drudge Report says ABC News is sitting on an interview with Newt's second wife, Marianne, and is debating the ethics of releasing it before the important primary Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The average vehicle on America's roads is almost 11 years old, according to the auto market analysts at Polk. The 10.8-year average is the highest figure recorded since Polk began tracking vehicle age in 1995. Back then, the average was just 8.4 years. Vehicle age has increased rapidly over the last five years as new vehicle sales have slowed. Polk's analysis is based on vehicle registration data. Older cars represent an opportunity for some businesses. "Dealer service departments and independent repair facilities, as well as aftermarket parts suppliers, will see increased business opportunity with customers in...

    Some in the gun rights advocacy community don't buy the official story, that "Project Gunwalker" was intended, through some "underpants gnome"-like magical mechanism, to "bring down a drug cartel." We believe instead that the real motive was to pad statistics which would then be used to bolster the foundering "U.S. commercial gun market is arming Mexican drug cartels" myth. In taking that position, we have opened ourselves up to the ridicule of such journalistic luminaries as Media Matters and Jon Stewart, who apparently really do believe both that senior government officials are stupidly incompetent enough to take such a harebrained...

    Conservative commentator Ann Coulter expressed confusion over the hype on royalty during an “Insider” interview that appeared online Thursday, the day before what would have been Princess Diana’s 50th birthday. Coulter, author of the new book “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America,” told “The Insider” co-host Kevin Frazier that she was baffled by Newsweek’s latest cover story about the late Princess Diana. (Newsweek photoshops Kate Middleton, late Princess Diana together on magazine cover) “I find it a little baffling when Americans get so gaga-eyed over a princess,” Coulter told Frazier. “Particularly Lady Di, who was just this anorexic,...

(AP photo/Charlie Niebergall) (CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama, who during the 2008 campaign famously referred to small town Americans as bitter people clinging to guns and religion, today issued an executive order establishing a White House Rural Council. The council will be chaired by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Democratic governor of Iowa. Iowa—and other northern Midwest states—have been key swing states in recent presidential elections. “Strong rural...
