    When Sebastian Gorka went to work on January 21, 2017, things were looking good. He scored a great parking spot for his Mustang, stepped out into Washington, D.C.’s crisp morning air, straightened his tie, and relished the opportunity he’d been given as he strode toward the White House. His mandate came from the President of the United States, Donald Trump, and he held it as an unequivocal honor — to make America great again. Gorka, the Trump administration’s deputy advisor on national security issues, knew his mission wouldn’t be a cakewalk. The White House and Capitol Hill were home to...
  • Sadly, Trump Is Winning (HuffPo Schadenfreude!)

    Huffington (Puffington) Post ^ | 12-8-17 | Earl Ofari Hutchinson
    This is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write and admit: Trump is winning. In the brief space of a week, he won a brief court fight to shove Mick Mulvaney to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mulvaney wasted no time in unhinging a spate of consumer protection rulings, regulations, and personnel hires made during the Obama years. His SCOTUS pick, Neil Gorsuch, eagerly cast a vote to impose the Muslim travel ban. His EPA head, Scott Pruitt, delivered a couple million acres of public monument land in the West to oil, gas, and coal industry...

    A 28-year-old mother from Wisconsin is facing felony charges after she decided to strap her nine-year-old son to the roof of her minivan. According to Fox 6, Amber Schmunk had just bought a plastic pool and did not think it would fit inside her vehicle. Instead of getting rope and tying it down, she thought it would be a good idea to strap her son to the roof to hold the pool down. Concerned motorists called police, who tracked the woman down at her sister's house. She told police that "she believed it was OK as her father let her...

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported Tuesday night explosive details about the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the United States, which may be putting the Podesta Group in Mueller’s “crosshairs.” Carlson said in his opening segment that, according to a source Mueller is looking into the Podesta Group, a lobbying firm with close ties to Hillary Clinton, over spreading Russian influence in the United States during Barack Obama’s presidency. Carlson said, “The central effort to extend Russian influence was focused on the executive branch, the Obama administration. The vehicle through which [Paul] Manafort worked for...

    National Review ^ | 9-26-17 | John Hawkins
    I did not expect Donald Trump to win the 2016 election, and like many, many other political professionals, I was egregiously wrong. After listening to what a lot of diehard Trump fans had to say, I took two big lessons away from being that wrong. The first is that I’m not Nostradamus, and I shouldn’t be in the business of definitively saying one candidate will win or lose a race. Hopefully, a lot of us learned that lesson in 2016. The other is that unfortunately, a large number of conservative Americans have given up on people like me, on people...

    For six months, Suki Kim worked as an English teacher at an elite school for North Korea's future leaders -- while writing a book on one of the world's most repressive regimes. As she helped her students grapple with concepts like "truth" and "critical thinking," she came to wonder: Was teaching these students to seek the truth putting them in peril?

  • Mysterious man trashes American flags from 9/11 memorial

    Campus Reform ^ | 9-11-17 | Hannah Scherlacher
    Members of Columbia University College Republicans walked out of class Monday afternoon to find a man removing the flags from their 9/11 memorial. The unidentified man removed a row of at least 50 flags, threw them in the trash, and went back for more. An angered Columbia University ROTC student recorded the event. “I ran over and asked him what he was doing, and was laughed at with no proper response,” the student recounted. “I asked a nearby Public Safety officer what could be done; but he was well within his rights to protest, so I recorded the video.”
  • Dear President Trump, A Reluctant Trumper

    A Reluctant Trumper This message comes from somebody who could best have been described before as a very, very reluctant Trumper. I only voted for you because you supported the Republican platform, which (miraculously) still seems to support Judeo-Christian values, and still opposes abortion. I worried about whether your devotion to conservative values was genuine. But in the last 7 months I have become an ardent admirer, enthusiastic supporter, and daily prayer warrior on your behalf. *** America Is Split America is deeply split, split on the definition of morality. Before you, elections skirted any allusion to the ethical conflict...

    Daily Caller ^ | 9-5-17 | Jack Crowe
    CNN executives explicitly told their investigative team to stop looking into potential ties between the Trump administration and Russia following a series of high profile reporting errors led that to the resignation of three journalists in June. Executives transferred all reporting duties associated with the Trump-Russia narrative to CNN’s Washington, D.C. team in the wake of a retracted June report, members of the CNN staff told The New York Times. The report in question was removed from CNN’s website after the network admitted it could not stand by information that tied then Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment...

    Kelly Sadler, a low-level staffer in the White House, lied about her credentials to push inaccurate leaked information to the press about the resignation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka from the administration. In an email to a number of people in the media, Sadler opens up by saying the email is for “BACKGROUND PURPOSES ONLY.” That text is written in bright red, and bolded. The headline of the email is “Background on Sebastian Gorka.” In the body of the email, Sadler then writes to media figures covering the resignation of Dr. Gorka: “From a White House Official: ‘Sebastian Gorka did not...

    President Donald Trump's threat to block the $85 billion deal between AT&T and Time Warner has yet to materialize. Time Warner chief executive Jeff Bewkes even scoffed at the notion back in May.
