    Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have combined to produce the instant best-seller: “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” The book’s reporting is one stratling revelation after another about the inner workings –or more accurately, serial crack-ups– of the Clinton Campaign 2016 and will be on every short list for the 2018 Pulitzers as well as almost certainly a HBO or Netflix mini-series. Allen and Parnes joined me Thursday to discuss Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” Audio.. Transscript

    My doctor told me there was a procedure that’s fairly new, but it’s changing the game in cosmetic surgery. It’s called “fractora,” an outpatient procedure done in the office that takes under an hour and that regenerates your natural collagen and tightens that old skin. I went home and told my husband I wanted to do this. Full disclosure: My husband hates the idea of any kind of surgery or injecting anything into my face. But I’ve convinced him that all of this is safe and I have a very well-respected doctor who has an office in Manhattan. I promise...

    The March for Science is tomorrow and no one in their right mind would say they are against it because of its name. First of all, you are standing against the right of people to march for whatever cause they wish. Second, you would be portrayed as someone who is against science. I am all for science. I think the climate changes. It always has and always will. Yet I have been portrayed as anti-science and a climate change “denier” by many who will be marching for things I certainly believe in. Just who does not believe in science? It’s...
  • Climate Scientists Spread Panic: ‘Ten Years’ to Save the Earth

    In the latest in radical climate doomsaying, a new report warns that fossil fuel consumption will need to be reduced “below a quarter of primary energy supply by 2100” to avoid possibly disastrous effects on global temperatures. In their report, titled “Pathways for balancing CO2 emissions and sinks,” a team of eight scientists warns that “anthropogenic emissions need to peak within the next 10 years, to maintain realistic pathways to meeting the COP21 emissions and warming targets.” The statement was immediately repackaged by environmentalists to read: “Scientists say we have ten years to save the earth.” As is always the...

    On Friday Gov. Chris Christie (R) commuted the prison sentence for former Marine Sergeant Hisashi Pompey, arrested six years ago for possessing a legally owned gun that was unregistered in the state of New Jersey. On April 13 Breitbart News reported that Pompey brought his handgun into New Jersey while visiting from Virginia. Following an altercation at a nightclub, one of Pompey’s friends retrieved the gun and was arrested. Pompey was also arrested because the gun was not registered in the state of New Jersey. ABC 7 reported that Pompey did “three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan for...

    I’ve spoken to a small group of reliable, formerly high-placed intelligence officials who have dropped a few interesting tidbits on me of late. Here’s my understanding, based on the discussions: It’s not true that wiretaps and/or electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens can “only” be done with a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court order. Besides the FISA court, “wiretapping” or electronic surveillance can also be done under Title III authority. The government used this authority, for example, in the Justice Department’s secret Fast and Furious “gunwalking” case. Additionally, U.S. Presidents have the power to issue secret presidential directives that can...

    The crackdown measures on illegal immigration Attorney General Jeff Sessions unveiled in Noagles, Arizona Tuesday continue to draw intense reactions spanning from abject horror to welcome relief. Professor and Washington Post contributor Daniel W. Drezner began the day by issuing a sincere apology for touching off a viral fake news scandal. Immediately after Tuesday’s announcement, Drezner tweeted that the Attorney General had described all “illegal immigrants” as “filth.” The tweet was quickly retweeted thousands of times and contributed to an outpouring of misdirected outrage at Mr. Sessions over his use of the word. In fact, as Drezner’s apology on the...

    Regarding Washington, on Thursday, Buck said, “It is a corrupting place. I think most people come here with good principles and good motives. They get here, and they are surrounded by the corrupting influences.” “Some, without even knowing it,” he added, “are moving toward spending more money and less oversight and really less caring at what’s going on around them.” Politicians, said Buck, are “bought with taxpayer dollars in the sense that it’s not their money. It’s very easy to spend someone else’s money on programs that others are interested in. So a special interest group will approach a congressman....

    Regardless of their reason for filing for bankruptcy, more retailers who enter Chapter 11 are ending up in liquidation. That's because of a change in the bankruptcy code in 2005, which trimmed the timeline retailers have to gain approval for sale or reorganization. While they used to be able to spend more than a year in bankruptcy, they now have 210 days to decide whether to keep a store's lease. Because going-out-of-business sales can take 90 days to run, senior lenders often try to make that decision in as little as 120 days. As chains liquidate or restructure, their store...

    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney will send a letter this week ordering federal agencies to prepare for massive cuts, according to a report from Axios. As part of Donald Trump’s plan to streamline federal government, Mulvaney will demand that federal agencies significantly reduce their costs and increase efficiency. The reorganization will likely involve selling assets, laying off employees, and the cancellation of programs deemed unnecessary. The letter will fall in line with Trump’s executive order from March 13th, which dictates Mulvaney “propose a plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies (as defined in section 551(1)...

    To North Korea, the strike is a warning that Mr. Trump is willing to match action with his tough tweets warning that the U.S. will not permit Pyongyang to threaten American security by marrying its small nuclear arsenal with intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching our shores. North Korea is also believed to possess chemical weapons which it could reign down on Seoul and American forces stationed near the South Korean capital in the event of conflict. To China, it shows that Mr. Trump is prepared to make good on his pledge to take unilateral action against North Korea if...
  • 35 U.S. crude flow to Asia props up tanker market damaged by OPEC cuts

    Energy Mix report ^ | on Apr 8, 2017 | By Editor on Apr 8, 2017
    OPEC all but trashed the tanker market with its output cuts. That the damage hasn’t been even worse is thanks in large part to a flood of U.S. crude exports, particularly to Asia, Bloomberg reports. China zoomed past Canada to become the biggest foreign destination for American crude in February, accounting for more than 8 million barrels of U.S. cargoes. Tanker tracking is indicating no let up in U.S. oil flooding to Asia in March, boosting shipments on what is one of the industry’s longest-distance trade routes. Freight rates for oil collapsed this year after the Organization of Petroleum Exporting...

    Nevertheless, once he was nominated, I just as vigorously supported him on the simple and -- I still believe -- unanswerable grounds that while no one could be certain how Trump would govern, we were all certain about how Hillary Clinton would govern -- as a leftist. And I truly believed that another four years of left-wing rule would mean the end of America as it was founded to be. That is why I found the arguments of the conservatives who were Never-Trumpers, many of whom I work with, admire and count as friends, not just unpersuasive but incomprehensible. That...
  • Obamacare's Absurd Food Labeling Law to Begin Soon

    However, another rule is set to take effect soon that might just take the cake. Or pizza, in this case: The nation’s franchise restaurants are about one month away from the imposition of new nutritional-labeling rules dreamed up by the Obama administration, another gift of the grievously misnamed Affordable Care Act. For outlets of brands with 20 or more locations, that means posting signs in the shop with calorie counts for every item on the menu and for every variation on that item. That’s probably not such a big deal if you are, say, Raising Cane’s, and your menu ranges...
  • Susan Rice Doesn’t Deny Unmasking Trump Associates

    Powerline ^ | April 4, 2017 | John Hinderaker
    This morning, Susan Rice turned to the friendly confines of MSNBC to respond to explosive allegations about her role in the Obama spy/leak scandal. Host Andrea Mitchell did all she could to make Rice feel at home. She asked no tough questions, failed to follow up on evasive answers, and sometimes jumped in to reinforce claims made by Rice. The video is below; watch it and draw your own conclusions. Here are my observations: 1) Amazingly, Rice got through a 16-minute interview without ever confirming or denying that she unmasked associates of President Trump. She replied to Mitchell’s initial questions...

    Occasionally, when flying with kids who are melting down, a stranger shows a parent some much-needed mercy. We've all heard stories -- there was that one man who walked a toddler up and down the plane's aisle so the pregnant mom could get a little rest. Or the woman who let a baby sleep on her when the dad couldn't stop him from crawling all over her in her window seat. Most recently, a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines stepped up and helped a parent whose baby girl couldn't get calm. , a mother traveling with her two small daughters...

    Since news broke Monday that the Obama Administration's National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, directed the "unmasking" of NSA intercepts of Trump associates, CNN has raced to shoot down the blockbuster report. CNN Tonight's Don Lemon went so far as to announce he would ignore the news at all costs. While interviewing a Democratic congressman, CNN's Chris Cuomo claimed it was "demonstrably untrue" Rice sought surveillance of the Trump team, even as that's exactly what yesterday's reports prove. Over the last 24 hours, the network has also repeatedly called on its chief national security correspondent, Jim Sciutto, to dismiss the reports...

    <p>Do you suspect that the noise over Trump campaign contacts with the Russians is just a political hit arranged by Obama insiders before they left? You got fresh evidence of that Monday, with news that then-national security adviser Susan Rice was behind the “unmasking” of Trumpites in transcripts of calls with Russian officials.</p>
