    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., shared high praise for his Republican colleague Sen. John McCain, who is in his "finest hour" because of his willingness to speak out against President Trump. During an interview Friday on HBO's "Real Time," Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was asked by host Bill Maher to react to the latest wave of town halls in which Republicans have faced fierce backlash over the Obamacare repeal and Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

    WASHINGTON — Vice President Mike Pence reaffirmed the Trump administration’s commitment to addressing persecution of Christians around the world and urged Americans to call the targeting of Christians by Islamic terrorists genocide during a speech Thursday. “Throughout the world, no people of faith today face greater hostility or hatred than the followers of Christ,” Pence said at the World Summit In Defense of Persecuted Christians, organized by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).

Documents provided by ICE to the Immigration Reform Law Institute in response to a FOIA request indicate that several dozen ICE officials attended a Simon Wiesenthal Center seminar in Los Angeles. The documents state that the training cost about $1,500 for each official.

    Freshman Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska called the timing of the firing "very troubling." "Jim Comey is an honorable public servant, and in the midst of a crisis of public trust that goes well beyond who you voted for in the presidential election, the loss of an honorable public servant is a loss for the nation . . . Arizona Sen. John McCain said he was "disappointed" by Trump's decision despite his having the legal authority to remove Comey from his position. Following the Tuesday setback, McCain wants to see a special congressional committee created to investigate Russia's interference in...

    Speaking at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, where he was awarded the Profiles in Courage Award, Obama said a lot of freshman Democratic lawmakers found themselves tossed into the healthcare debate when they arrived in Washington. Though they knew voting for Obama's healthcare bill might be unpopular back home, Obama said they felt it was the right thing to do. "They had a chance to insure millions … but then this same vote would likely cost them their new seats, perhaps end their political careers," he said. "And, these men and women did the right thing. They...

    Sen. Tim Kaine said Friday that FBI Director James B. Comey’s decision to inform Congress of the reopening into the Hillary Clinton email case will go down as “the lowest moment” for the organization. “I think it will go own as probably the lowest moment in the history of the FBI, probably next to the decision of J. Edgar Hoover to wiretap Martin Luther King,” Mr. Kaine, Virginia Democrat, said on CNN.

    A man is suing American Airlines for $100,000 after he was crushed by two obese passengers during a 14-hour flight and left with permanent back and neck injuries. Michael Anthony Taylor, 67, claims airline staff refused to let him change seats on the flight from Sydney to Los Angeles, despite his desperate pleas to move. The Wollongong man says he was forced to crouch, kneel, brace and stand throughout the lengthy flight, which also aggravated his existing condition of curvature of the spine.

    On Thursday’s All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC guest and Boing Boing co-editor Xeni Jardin broke down sobbing over the House passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) as a “devastating” event that’s not “the American that I love” and promising to “fight for every single one of you, America.” Hilariously, the liberal simultaneously demanded that “[e]very single cell in this country, every single person in this country deserves life” but must have realized her far-left mistake as she later emphasized that “[t]he America that I love cares about my right to life, even though I’m 46 years past...

Two previously unreleased emails have a subject line “Quick Summary of POTUS Calls to Presidents of Libya and Egypt” and were sent two days after terrorists attacked the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, according to Judicial Watch.

    Although the Trump administration's new healthcare bill has yet to pass the Senate, Hollywood stars have already vowed revenge on the GOP. On Thursday afternoon, the House voted narrowly (217 to 213) to repeal Obamacare and replace it with the American Health Care Act. Immediately, celebrities condemned the "felons," accusing them of "entitlement," "fraud" and "hypocrisy." Many urged resistance, while actor Ron Perlman even threatened California's Republican House members.

    A U.S. district judge last week ordered California state prison officials to provide free chest-flattening underwear, also known as compression tops, to transgender inmates at women's prisons and feminine accessories to transgender inmates at men's prisons. Requiring inmates to buy compression tops "effectively" denies those items to individuals who cannot afford them, according to U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, who issued the order on Friday. Taxpayers, therefore, must foot the bill.

    All three networks this morning predictably reacted negatively to President Trump signing an executive order to scale back federal regulations on religious organizations. Calling the order “controversial,” the three networks warned the bill would likely cause discrimination and fretted about forced birth control coverage. Yet not one of the networks interviewed a religious group that would be affected positively by this order.

    President Trump's tough talk on North Korea has apparently emboldened Americans into supporting a preemptive U.S. attack on the communist nation's nuclear weapons. A new Zogby Analytics poll provided to Secrets found that 52 percent back a U.S. first strike. "A majority (52 percent) of voters agree that the U.S. must deal with North Korea's nuclear threat and are willing to even support a preemptive strike, as opposed to 36 percent of voters who disagree," said the survey.
