    Republican Rep. Charlie Dent (Pa.) said Saturday that the firing of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday looked to be a "vindictive" move by the president. In an interview with CNN, Dent said that while he would wait for the inspector general's report to judge McCabe, his firing looked like retribution from the White House. "This firing looks a bit forced, a bit rushed. Candidly, it looks like retribution and a bit vindictive," Dent said. "And I think it's unfortunate. The man said he's resigning, you know, and on a Friday night before his 50th birthday he's fired to...

    VideoA high school student in Hilliard, Ohio, didn’t want to pick sides in the contentious gun debate surrounding Wednesday’s “National Walkout,” so he stayed in class instead of joining the largely anti-gun protest or an alternative “study hall.” Hilliard Davidson High School senior Jacob Shoemaker was then reportedly slapped with a suspension.

    The head of a U.S.-funded global commission operating under the famously corrupt United Nations (UN) is in Washington D.C. today to promote his leftist agenda in Central America. The Colombian attorney and former judge, Ivan Velásquez, runs the UN-backed (International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG)), a controversial body known to utilize measures that threaten the impoverished Central American nation’s sovereignty. Officially, the CICIG claims to strengthen the rule of law. Like many leftwing global organizations, its stated (purpose) is to protect “the right to life and to personal integrity” of citizens from vigilante groups that “commit illegal acts” —...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared for the full hour on the second installment of Mark Levin’s new FOX News show last night (video below). It is thanks to Rep. Nunes in particular and his Republican colleagues in general that we know as much as we do about the Obama administration’s efforts to undermine the Trump campaign during the election and the incoming Trump administration afterwards. The saga continues. The interview serves as a summary of what we have learned to date (despite the resistance of Adam Schiff and his Democratic colleagues) and how much we have yet to...

    Congressional Democratic leaders in Washington think they have a winning issue in gun control this time around, seemingly impervious to the lessons they should have learned from literally every single other time we’ve been through this rigmarole. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are pushing for policy ideas that will make the party stand out as the ones who stood up against the NRA, but there are many Democrats on the analysis side of things who think the leadership should be very careful in how they approach the issue.

    The US threatened unilateral action against Iran after Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Tehran’s failure to stop its weapons from reaching Houthi rebels in Yemen. "If Russia is going to continue to cover for Iran then the US and our partners need to take action on our own,” said US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday. “If we’re not going to get action on the council then we have to take our actions.” Ms Haley did not specify what kind of action could be taken. Russia on Monday vetoed the resolution that would have...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is telling her fellow Democrats to "get ready" for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Speaking at the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego on Saturday, Waters said that she believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller is getting closer to discovering which Americans "were and are involved in collusion with the Russians." “I say it is time to get ready for impeachment,” Waters said to raucous applause. “I cannot wait, and I’m counting on Special Counsel Mueller to connect the dots.” “Democrats, I don’t care what the Republicans say. I say impeach 45!” Waters declared....

    European officials have been not only mute about the Iranian regime's attacks on its own people. They have also been missing "a robust defense of Western values", now under attack in Iran: freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, separation of religion and state, judicial due process. The European Union these days is alarmed about political reforms in Poland, but totally quiet about Erdogan's "coup against civilians" in Turkey. How is it possible that Pope Francis, the world's highest Catholic authority, does not feel any urgency to denounce the avalanche of anti-Semitism and hate coming from the Islamic authorities, but pleased...

    The irony, of course, is that so many people, have adopted a way of interpreting human rights and liberal values in a manner that often undermines them. It is time for some home truths. Islam has been at war with the West for some 1,384 years, with very little respite. When Muslim Arab armies invaded Syria in 634, went on to destroy all but a rump of the Christian Byzantine empire (which it finally defeated when the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople in 1453), took control of Spain, Portugal, Sicily and other lands on the north Mediterranean coast, it was the...

    The first two openly gay male U.S. winter Olympians are doubling down on their feud with Vice President Pence over his record on LGBTQ rights. Freeskier Gus Kenworthy posted a photo on Instagram of himself and figure skater Adam Rippon with a caption that calls out Pence, who is leading the U.S. delegation to the 2018 Olympics, by name. Rippon was named to the U.S. Olympic team first, making history as the first openly gay man to represent the country in the Winter Olympics. Kenworthy was named to the team a few weeks later.

    President Donald Trump has set in motion his plan to build an "impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful, southern border wall" between the US and Mexico. The border is about 1,900 miles (3,100 km) long and traverses all sorts of terrain. Mr Trump says his wall will cover 1,000 miles and natural obstacles will take care of the rest.But how much will it cost and who is going to foot the bill?[snip] Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell estimated it will cost between $12-15bn, as he addressed reporters at a Republican conference in Philadelphia.
