    During an interview with NPR, Fox News host Megyn Kelly explained how she feels that President-elect Donald Trump’s continuous attacks on the mainstream media represents a “dangerous phase” for America at the moment. Her concern is that it will lead to a larger portion of the American public not believing what they hear from the press. Appearing on Fresh Air, Kelly spoke with host Terry Gross and told her about being targeted by Trump on Twitter in the aftermath of the first GOP presidential debate. She noted that it soon devolved into death threats from his supporters and a torrent

    Suprun signed a pledge last summer to support the Republican nominee. He lied. Suprun is a #NeverTrumper. His Twitter timeline is littered with fellow #NeverTrumper gibberish. Now this… If you look at Chris Suprun’s Twitter page you can clearly see that he is using Megaphone Strategies as his PR firm.

    President Barack Obama will deliver a major address Tuesday in Florida to explain the policies his administration established over the past eight years on suspected terrorists, while making a push for the transparency his critics have said for years does not exist. Obama will explain in his speech, being delivered at the military's Central Command headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, also the home of Special Operations Command, the legal and policy rationale used by the administration to decide whether terrorists should be killed, interrogated, or detained, reports The Los Angeles Times, which notes the president will be...
  • China warns Trump: Iran nuclear deal must stand

    12/05/2016 2:02:26 PM PST · by Nachum · 55 replies
    BEIJING — Implementation of the Iran nuclear deal should not be “affected by any changes in the domestic situations” of countries involved, China’s foreign minister warned Monday, responding to US president-elect Donald Trump’s threats to abandon it. The agreement, signed in Vienna in July 2015 and in force since January 2016, was the signature diplomatic breakthrough of Barack Obama’s second term. It calls on Tehran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief from the US and other nations. Trump has promised to tear up the nuclear deal once in office, calling the agreement under which it was...

    White House press secretary Josh Earnest encouraged President-elect Trump on Monday to take advantage of the "expertise and advice" of career diplomats at the State Department as the controversy surrounding the incoming president's recent call to Taiwan continues to boil over. "Whenever you are talking about the president-elect interacting with foreign leaders, it's incredibly important. It has profound consequences for our country and for our national interests around the world," Earnest said in response to a reporter's question about whether Trump is "winging" his discussions with foreign leaders. "Last week, we had some conversations about a conversation the president-elect had...

    Pennsylvania Republicans are livid with the secretary of state´s office for releasing not only the names of the state´s electors, but also their home addresses and phone numbers. The GOP is calling the move "unprecedented." Going by recent history, it certainly is. Previously, the secretary of state´s office would release the names and home counties of electors. Now all of a sudden, Democratic Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés discovered a way to release the personal contact information of electors, despite the fact the state had never done so previously. Cortés´s office claims they were just following the law on

    What’s Going On? Donald TRump has last 16,648 votes in Pennsylvania in the last week – since November 29th. Massive voter fraud in Pennsylvania has been identified.

    The Times of Israel ^ | 12/4/16 | Rebecca Shimoni Stoil
    WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry excoriated the Israeli right, claiming that support for settlement construction stems from a desire to subvert Israeli-Palestinian peace, during a speech before the Brookings Institution’s Saban Forum on Sunday afternoon. A subdued Kerry, wearing reading glasses and referring to extensive notes, notably refrained from committing to veto any UN resolution intended to establish a Palestinian state, only promising a veto “if it is a biased, unfair resolution calculated to delegitimize Israel.” US officials last week indicated that US President Barack Obama had nearly ruled out any major last-ditch effort to put pressure on...

    WASHINGTON — It was an introspective US Secretary of State John Kerry who came to the closing session of the last Saban Forum of the Obama administration. For four years as secretary of state, the Massachusetts politician had made the short trek to the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in early December, updating an audience that leaned Democratic – and pro-Israel – about the hottest issues on the burner, whether they were peace talks or Iran nuclear negotiations. Introspective Kerry knew that this was his last time to explain before Washington’s think-tank elite why on his watch, the United States had once...

    WASHINGTON, United States — Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped her efforts Saturday to request a vote recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she is challenging the results. “Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: “#Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.”

    Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on with Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the recount in Wisconsin. Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes. This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldn’t make up 20,000 votes. But they also knew if they stalled on the recount the state

    President-elect Donald Trump indicated in an interview with 60-Minutes last weekend that he may be done pursuing the Clintons, backing off campaign statements that the former Secretary of State should be in jail. "She did some bad things, I mean she did some bad things," Trump said. "They’re good people. I don't want to hurt them." But although Trump might be done with the Clintons, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz is not, telling Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson Tuesday investigations into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and pay-to-play allegations between the State Department and Clinton Foundation...

Cotton has been a staunch opponent of the Iran nuclear deal and has been critical of President Obama's foreign policy and national security positions. Senator Jeff Sessions and former Senator Kelly Ayotte, who lost her re-election bid last week, are also reportedly being considered for the position.

    President Barack Obama met with President-elect Donald Trump Friday at the White House, and it didn’t take long for Obama to leak a negative spin on the meeting. Obama aides reported that Trump “seemed surprised at the scope” of responsibilities of the president, according to the Wall Street Journal. Obama called for Democrats to “give Trump a chance to lead,” adding that “Trump’s success is our success.” White House insiders also told the Journal that Trump was unaware that all of the staff at the White House would need to be replaced, but the fact that Trump staff created a

    As election day approaches at breakneck speed, many Americans find themselves on either side of what appears to be a gigantic chasm. On one side are supporters of Republican nominee Donald Trump, and on the other are supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Throughout the campaign, both sides have clashed through heated rhetoric and, at times, even physical fights. With this divide as the basis for one of its advertisements, the dog food company Pedigree set out to see if it could bring the two sides together using an adorable Golden Retriever. Pedigree’s plan involved sending a woman in a...

    Sonia Sotomayor said her fellow Supreme Court justice´s comments sometimes left her wanting to dispense rough justice with sporting equipment. “There are things he’s said on the bench where if I had a baseball bat, I might have used it,” the Bronx-born judge said of her late colleague Antonin Scalia on Monday. Scalia was a longtime leader of the Court’s conservative wing, often on the opposite side of Sotomayor on issues such as gay marriage and affirmative action after she was appointed by President Obama in 2009.

    President Barack Obama floated the notion of a test for media organizations, griping about the wide-spread existence of alternative media available in America. He was critical of the current Wild West online environment where people could say anything on social media or on news websites. “We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to,” he said. Throughout his presidency, Obama has repeatedly complained about the existence of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, causing division amongst Americans and making his job difficult, but he rarely offers a solution. This time,...

    The United States on Friday criticized Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria during a UN Security Council discussion on the issue. The meeting, titled "Illegal Israeli Settlements: Obstacles to Peace and the Two-State Solution," was informal and did not involve a vote. It was held at the initiative of Egypt, Venezuela, Malaysia, Senegal and Angola. The U.S. representative to the session, Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the UN David Pressman, said Washington is "deeply concerned and strongly opposes settlements which are corrosive to peace," according to Haaretz. Pressman added that Israeli activities in Judea and Samaria, primarily construction of new communities,...

    Michelle Obama said during an emotionally charged speech at a rally in New Hampshire that Donald Trump´s lewd comments about women “have shaken me to my core." She went on to harshly criticize the GOP candidate for his "demeaning" attitude toward women. (Snip) Within hours, the White House issued a statement warning Trump not to attack the first lady. “I can’t think of a bolder way for Donald Trump to lose even more standing than he already has than by engaging the first lady of the United States,” principal deputy White House press secretary Eric Schultz told reporters during a
