    If you were wondering how Jimmy Kimmel suddenly became an instant expert on Graham-Cassidy, it turns out he had a lot of help including from Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The Daily Beast reports Kimmel has had a running conversation with Schumer and other outside experts for several weeks: Behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups, multiple sources told The Daily Beast. He also was in touch with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) who, according to a...

    In a major diplomatic victory for the Trump administration, the U.S. has convinced the Chinese government to halt all financial transactions with North Korea. Make no mistake: this is a huge step forward in putting pressure on North Korea to halt its rush to develop nuclear weapons and long-range missiles. It will have near immediate impact on North Korea's ability to pay its bills. In a carefully choreographed strategy deployed from the shadow of the United Nations headquarters in New York, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin called the head of China's central bank very early Thursday to alert him...

    The Democratic National Committee, in dire financial straits due to lackluster fundraising this year, had its worst August raising money in a decade. Figures reported to the FEC on Wednesday night show not only a major drop-off in cash for the Democrats, but also a substantial increase in the party's debt. Washington Free Beacon: TheDNCraised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as itsspending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575....

      This is easily the read of the day.  Sharyl Attkisson is the bravest reporter of her generation, so much of a threat to people with access to the capabilities of our intel agencies that she was spied upon and worse.  Today she faces the ugly truth about what recent reports (if true) reveal: Nobody wants our intel agencies to be used like the Stasi in East Germany; the secret police spying on its own citizens for political purposes. The prospect of our own NSA, CIA and FBI becoming politically weaponized has been shrouded by untruths, accusations and justifications. She...
  • North Korea claims sanctions threaten the survival of its children

    Han Tae-song, Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, took advantage of a hearing by a U.N. committee on children to whine about how sanctions "seriously threaten" the health and well-being of North Korea's children. What's ironic about the ambassador's warning is that the hearing he was testifying at was held to look into independent allegations of forced child labor, sexual abuse, and trafficking in North Korea. Reuters: Han said North Korea, whose population is 26 million, is a "people-centered socialist country... where protection and promotion of the rights and welfare of the child are given top priority ......

    THE US has military plans in place to combat North Korea, US Defence Secretary James 'Jim' Mattis has revealed amid escalating tensions over Kim Jong-uns nuclear and missile advancements. It comes as North Korea test launched another missile over Japan on Friday following an earlier hydrogen bomb test which sparked a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Mr Mattis said he and his South Korean counterpart had discussed the idea of introducing nuclear weapons to the Korean peninsula but would disclose any further details about the military plans. He added: Yes there are. But I will not go into details. Mr Mattis also...

    In 2012, my promotional printing company, Hands on Originals, was approached by a customer to print a message that conflicted with my conscience. When I said no, they sued me. Hi, my name is Blaine Adamson. I got into the T-shirt printing business because I wanted to create Christian shirts that people would want to wear. Christian T-shirts at the time were so cheesy, they were so bad. For all the years that Ive been running my business, Hands on Originals, Ive happily served and employed people of all backgrounds, of all walks of life. Thats why it was hard...
  • Report: Samantha Power Made 260 Requests Last Year To Unmask Americans In Intel Reports

    That’s … a lotta unmasking. The fact that Samantha Power is at the heart of the “unmasking” investigation in the House barely qualifies as news at this point, as her name has been floating around in connection with it for months. In fact, Trey Gowdy quizzed John Brennan about a mysterious ambassador and her strange unmasking requests at a House hearing all the way back on May 23. By mid-July the Free Beacon’s sources had identified her as a “central figure” in the probe. Note this quote from that piece: “Unmasking is not a regular occurrence—absolutely not a weekly...

    Something zesty to cleanse the palate. Remember her? Outed as a CIA analyst by Richard Armitage in Plamegate, she was a cause celebre of the anti-war, anti-Bush left in the middle of the last decade, right around the time that Cindy Sheehan was. Sheehan turned out to be a bit … eccentric politically, but oh well.Not good ol’ Valerie Plame.The politically correct term is “globalists” but we live in a politically incorrect age. Anyway, much outrage and dark humor ensued on Twitter after she tweeted that, leading to Plame’s first ill-advised attempt at spin. Chill out, she responded. The...

    At this point, you’re probably already familiar with the case of baker Jack Phillips who declined to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding on the grounds that it went against his beliefs as a Christian. In June, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case which suggests the legal issue here isn’t as simple as it might appear (to some) at first glance. Today the NY Times published a sample of the 4,500 responses to the story written on the website or on Facebook by their readers. To the Times’ credit, they didn’t use this as an...

    The numbers don't lie. Across the entertainment industry, viewers and fans are tuning out. It's no coincidence ratings are cratering as unhinged celebrities crank up their anti-Trump and anti-American antics. Pro tip, Tinseltownies: Swapping your jazz hands for middle fingers and waving resistance fists at your customer base is bad for business. Let us count the waning ways. Emmy emetics. Who wanted to see smirking Stephen Colbert lead a cast of Botoxed starlets and men in hot pants, handing out TV industry awards to diamond-draped elites hoisting up their gilt statues as emblems of victory on behalf of the hegemonically...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Imagine if the majority of Jews had voted for President Trump while only 13% had voted for Hillary. You dont have to imagine too hard. Those are the actual numbers among Orthodox Jews. And Orthodox Jews are on track to become the majority among Jews, first in New York, and then nationwide. Trumps favorables among Orthodox Jews clock in at 71% positive to 27% negative. These numbers come from the 2017 American Jewish Committees Survey...

    It has become axiomatic that life naturally evolved out of nonliving materials billions of years ago. Given enough time and the chemical opportunity, living cells self-assemble.However, the experts on the development of complex molecules from simpler ones, the synthetic chemists, do not know how this process actually occurs. There are no known pathways to create the components that make up a living cell from nonliving matter. They have no idea how amino acids (the building blocks of proteins and enzymes), nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA and RNA), saccharides (also called carbohydrates or sugars, the scaffolding for DNA and...
  • Why Graham-Cassidy Is Better Than Just a Fix to Obamacare

    National Review ^ | 09/21/2017 | Chris Pope
    Two months ago it became clear that the Better Care Reconciliation Act, the Senate Republican leaderships attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, lacked the votes to pass. That legislation combined many worthy reforms to the structure of American health care, with $904 billion in cuts to Medicaid spending and subsidies for the purchase of plans on the exchanges. As a result, many powerful groups stood to lose from the passage of legislation, while few stood to immediately profit from its enactment. Senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy have recognized that fixing the non-group health-insurance market and refocusing...

    New York Post ^ | 09/20/2017 | Betsy McCaughey
    Bernie Sanders Medicare for All Act, introduced last Wednesday, outlaws private health insurance. Curiously, not one of the Democratic presidential wannabes crowding around Sanders for photo ops mentioned this alarming fact. If Sanders has his way, 180 million Americans who currently have private coverage would have it ripped away and be automatically enrolled in public insurance. Kids would be enrolled at birth. Medicare for All doesnt just offer government health insurance to the needy. It makes private coverage illegal, including the health coverage you get at your job. Employers are prohibited from covering workers, retirees and their families. Sanders bill...

    Kim Jong Uns officials plucked teenage girls from North Korean schools to serve as the leaders sex slaves, indulged in a gluttonous lifestyle while his people starved and ordered public executions that turned into horrific shows of violence, a North Korean defector revealed. Hee Yeon, who fled Pyongyang in 2015 and now lives in Seoul, told The Mirror about the years she spent living in constant fear of Kim Jong Un since the ruthless dictator took control of North Korea in 2011. Despite our privilege we were scared. I saw terrible things in Pyongyang, Hee Yeon said. In what heinous...

    President Donald Trump would sign the Graham-Cassidy bill if the legislation to repeal Obamacare makes it to his desk, an administration official told CNN Tuesday, as the White House launched a full-court press on Capitol Hill. The White House has been working with Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana for weeks on the new effort. A second source added that Trump himself had quietly encouraged the two senators to take another shot at health care. Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials are on Capitol Hill Tuesday to lobby Republican senators on the...

    Ann Coulter said Wednesday that she would prefer Vice President Mike Pence over President Trump because Trump is failing to build his promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. "If we are not getting a wall, we might as well have a, you know, attractive, dignified Republican there, Coulter said on Newsmax TV. Coulter is the author of In Trump We Trust but she has turned on Trump in the last few weeks, and said Pence is now a "better option." Coulter railed against Trump after Democrats reported they had a deal with the White House to pass legislation protecting immigrants...

    Oppening a new front in its broad legal battle against policies of President Trump, California filed a lawsuit Wednesday alleging that the administration has overstepped its powers in expediting construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. California Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra, who has filed eight lawsuits in recent months challenging various Trump actions, continued in his role leading efforts nationally to fight proposals he deems divisive and illegal. Becerra announced the latest legal challenge in front of existing fencing at Border Field State Park near San Diego, saying the federal government failed to comply with environmental laws and relied...

    Less than two weeks before Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination, his campaign chairman offered to provide briefings on the race to a Russian billionaire closely aligned with the Kremlin, according to people familiar with the discussions. Paul Manafort made the offer in an email to an overseas intermediary, asking that a message be sent to Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate with whom Manafort had done business in the past, these people said. If he needs private briefings we can accommodate, Manafort wrote in the July 7, 2016, email, portions of which were read to The Washington Post along...
