    House Democrats are trying to prove that President Trump engaged in salacious activities with prostitutes in the swanky Moscow Ritz-Carlton in 2013. He repeatedly has denied any such encounter. Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is investigating Russian interference in the presidential election last year and any Trump campaign collusion, first tried in March to validate the prostitute portion of the unverified Trump-Russia dossier. The attempts were made during questioning of then-FBI director James B. Comey and Navy Adm. Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency. More recently, Democrats insisted on calling as a witness...

    The US House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs on Friday sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson requesting that he take steps to ensure that another violent incident involving the security detail of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan does not take place during Erdoğan’s visit to New York for the UN General Assembly on Sept. 12. “The violence on May 16 outside the Turkish Ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C. was only the latest in a disturbing series of violent, unwarranted behavior by the security forces accompanying President Erdogan while in the United States.

She then explained her opposition by making nameless references to the July 1 murder of Kathryn Steinleallegedly shot to death by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on San Franciscos Pier 14and argued that sanctuary cities are not the problem.

    Today, there are hundreds of thousands of men and women working overseas on various contracts and making good money, probably two to three times what they can make in the United States. On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (its higher for 2015). However and I cant emphasize this enough they are earning it! Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria,...

    Michael Moore is an elitist gun control zealot, but he has (or at least in 2005) a body guard who carries a gun. Why? Because hes safer that way. Filmmaker Michael Moores (search) bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New Yorks JFK airport Wednesday night. Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. Burke was taken to Queens central booking and could potentially be charged with...

    Sources have told the Daily Telegraph that just five unarmed locally hired Libyans were placed on duty at the compound on eight-hour shifts under a deal that fell outside the State Department's global security contracting system.

The compound was overrun by a mob of Islamic extremists on the morning of September 12 in an apparent planned attack that resulted in the...

    American Thinker ^ | March 8, 2012 | Tom Trinko
    Winston Churchill declared that in war, truth was so precious that it must always be accompanied by a bodyguard of lies. Because liberals are at war with American society and their true beliefs are repugnant to most Americans, liberals constantly conceal the truth of their beliefs with sweet-sounding lies. Liberals constantly create a cloud of lies about their support for tolerance and diversity to conceal the absolutely intolerant core of their faith. Americans are informed that tolerance requires them to accept pornography, abortion, gay marriage, casual sex, and everything else that liberals happen to like. Strangely, however, liberals are not...

    Lehi resident John Rockwell has a last name that's either famous or infamous. It depends on who you ask. Rockwell is the great-great-grandson of Old West icon Orrin Porter Rockwell, who died at age 65 132 years ago this month. Porter Rockwell is known for being the lifelong friend and, as an adult, the personal bodyguard, of LDS Church founder Joseph Smith. Or his detractors might tell you that he's known for being a dissolute, murderous, lawless gunslinger. Because Porter Rockwell never learned to read or write, his story was being told in other people's words even before he'd died....

    SANAA, YEMEN -- When he served in the Afghan mountains as Osama bin Laden's personal bodyguard, Nasser al-Bahri said, he was known as "The Killer." Today, Bahri is a business consultant in Yemen who favors Western-style pinstriped shirts, crisp slacks and black loafers. But his ideas are still radical: Ask him whether jihadists should kill Americans on U.S. soil and he replies without hesitation, "America is a legitimate target."
