    By Norimitsu Onishi and Jeffrey Moyo Nov. 21, 2017 HARARE, Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, resigned as president on Tuesday shortly after lawmakers began impeachment proceedings against him, according to the speaker of Parliament. The speaker of Parliament read out a letter in which Mr. Mugabe said he was stepping down with immediate effect for the welfare of the people of Zimbabwe and the need for a peaceful transfer of power. Parliament erupted into cheers and jubilant residents poured into the streets of Harare, the capital. It seemed to be an abrupt capitulation...

    A spokesman for the CIA is criticizing the Michael Bay movie "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" as a "distortion of the events and people who served in Benghazi that night." The spokesman, Ryan Trapani, was quoted in an exclusive Washington Post story, which also features an interview with the CIA chief in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in a siege of the diplomatic compound and attack on the CIA annex. "No one will mistake this movie for a documentary," Tripani told the Post. "It's a distortion of the events...

    It is the most fateful moment in a movie that purports to present a searingly accurate account of the 2012 attacks that left four Americans dead in Benghazi, Libya: a scene in which the highest-ranking CIA operative at a secret agency compound orders his security team to “stand down” rather than rush off to rescue U.S. diplomats under siege less than a mile away. According to the officer in charge of the CIA’s Benghazi base that night, the scene in the movie is entirely untrue. “There never was a stand-down order,” said the base chief known as Bob, speaking publicly...
  • I Think She Is an Idiot: Foxs Beckel Clashes With Co-Hosts Over Irrelevant Ann Coulter

    Days after the University of California Berkeley first announced that they were canceling a speech by conservative provocateur Ann Coulter, along with Coulter rejecting their offer of a new date and planning to show up as originally scheduled, the issue is still a big topic on cable news. On this evenings broadcast of Fox News The Five, the four conservative co-hosts ended up taking turns tearing into the college, students, liberals, and the Democratic Party for blocking Coulters free speech. Greg Gutfeld, for example, decried it as sharia law for snowflakes. Eventually, the one panelist who is supposed to...

    Then again, how could they not. Otherwise the only senator they could fundraise for would be Tom Cotton. AIPAC backed the Corker bill. So did most Republicans. Everything else was political theater. AIPAC played its part to get publicity, and then it's back to business as usual, fundraising for people who voted to let Iran go nuclear. Steve Rosen, a former foreign policy director for Aipac, told me his former organization will be inclined to work with Democrats rather than turn them into enemies. "There is no question Aipac lay leaders will in the future be holding fundraisers for Democrats...

    Israels ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer received Saturday the full backing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, amid chatter in Washington that replacing Dermer may be necessary to restore the working relationship with the Obama administration. In a statement by the Prime Ministers Office, Netanyahu reiterated what he had said at the AIPAC conference earlier this month that he couldnt be prouder to have Ron Dermer representing Israel in Washington. That is as true today as it was then, the statement read. The prime minister has full confidence in Ambassador Dermer, whose service to the people and State of Israel...

    Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A. King, the president of the Dustin Inman Society, former congressman, Libertarian presidential candidate, and current Republican congressional candidate Bob Barr said he would work to pass federal legislation that mandated the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. (SNIP) In fact, in 2010 Bob Barr called E-Verify big brother-ism. In 2011, Bob Barr also opposed E-Verify. In May of 2013, Bob Barr opposed E-Verify. Hell, last week Bob Barr opposed E-Verify.

    Caller: "Mr Brown, I'm very interested to get your thoughts on Eric Cantor's defeat. Your reply to Howie Carr's question on what happened in Mississippi. Here is my translation of what you just said: "I am very happy that the corrupt Republican leadership defeated the person who was voted in; who won the Republican votes." Scott Brown blames Cantor's loss on running for Speaker. Then he talks Cochran. Brown:"And we need to unify regardless of who's in charge right now, who's been elected and who's nominated.

    It is unbelievable that Mitt Romney did not answer a direct question teed up for him by the moderator Bob Schieffer - regarding the question of whether Obama mislead the American people over the unmitigated debacle and possible treason that was Benghazi. He gave Romney an open end question, inviting him to address the Libya debacle. Romney chose to ignore the question and instead recite a monologue that sounded like a canned political speech. Romney then allowed Obama to interrupt him and take over the question that was actually posed to himself - not Obama. It became evident six minutes...
