    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell showered his wife, Elaine Chao, with praise Thursday night, over her confrontation with protesters who wanted the Kentucky Republican to answer for immigrant children being separated from their parents at the U.S. southern border. Chao, who serves as transportation secretary, told the demonstrators to “leave my husband alone” as the couple departed an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday evening. McConnell explained he told his wife to hop into the waiting car, but Chao leapt into action....

    No wonder the Russian meddlers are laughing – the Dems are wittingly colluding in sowing discord through sleazy identity politics and by fostering extreme multiculturalism. Lacking substantive policy ideas, their main hope for electoral success is to divide and conquer. Russia is a major geopolitical adversary, which makes the Democrats the enemy within. The thread that binds our great tapestry of cultures was woven by our founding fathers "in order to form a more perfect union." Their system of checks and balances ensures that rationality and compromise establish a balance between our contradictory instincts of cooperation and competition. Their emphasis...

    WASHINGTON — Senator Rand Paul was right — Republicans can be hypocrites when it comes to spending. Mr. Paul, the architect of Friday’s one-man shutdown, called out his own party for renewed profligacy after years of penny-pinching during the Obama administration, accusing Republicans of forming “an unholy alliance and spending free-for-all with Democrats at the expense of the American people and our party’s supposed principles. ” But Mr. Paul, a Kentucky Republican, had his own obvious inconsistencies. He was bemoaning a surge in deficit spending after enthusiastically voting in December for a deficit-ballooning $1.5 trillion tax cut. He then forced...

    The fissure was first spotted in October on Rattlesnake Ridge in south central Washington State, overlooking Interstate 82 and the Yakima River. Since then, a 20-acre chunk of mountainside — roughly four million cubic yards of rock, enough to fill 25 football stadiums to the top of the bleachers, eight stories up — has been sliding downhill. Geologists can measure its current speed — about two and a half inches a day — but they cannot say for certain when, or if, it might accelerate into a catastrophe. And they are powerless to stop it. “The mountain is moving, and...

    FULL TITLE:Shameless: Hundreds of CEOs Demand Dreamer Amnesty Shortly After Promising Tax Cuts Will Help American Workers Corporate America is not leaving it to lawmakers and the White House to reach a deal to determine the fate of millions of illegal foreign workers whose temporary permission to work in the U.S. is set to expire early this year. Instead, more than 100 corporate leaders are demanding immediate and permanent amnesty for millions of so-called “Dreamers.” Just days after President Donald Trump hosted Democratic and Republican lawmakers at the White House to discuss legislation that would authorize funding for a border...

    AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — The Latest on a shooting at a New Mexico high school (all times local): 10:25 a.m. Authorities say three people are dead following a shooting at a New Mexico high school. San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen told reporters that three people believed to be students died Thursday at Aztec High School. He says the shooter also was dead but didn't say if the suspect was among the three. Authorities said they had cleared all the buildings at the school and that students were boarding buses to another location where they could be reunited with their...

    There are so many conflicting reports surrounding the Russia Collusion Investigation, Fake Trump Dossier, DNC Corruption, and most importantly these issues bleed into the Uranium One Scandal. I have done a few reports as of late, and honestly I am beginning to realize all of these issues have one thing in common: Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He is ether investigating or involved in all of the above. In my opinion Robert Mueller should have never been appointed as Special Counsel. This is the legal defining reason to fire a special counsel: https://lawfareblog.com/could-trump-remove-special-counsel-robert-mueller-lessons-watergate QUOTE Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert...

    Neither the vest from the accredited training program nor the certificate are required under the ADA. The ADA says anyone can train their dog, or miniature horse, to perform a task that mitigates or helps them with their disability. Professional training is not required. ADA also specifically prohibits cities, merchants and others from requiring proof that a dog is a service dog. It allows, in fact, only two questions. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? What work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Service dog owners may not be asked about the...

    Freedom Without the Truth Leads to Chaos and Slavery Msgr. Charles Pope • December 6, 2016 • To most modern minds, freedom is a very detached concept; it is an abstraction of sorts, a free-floating power unmoored from any limits or defining standards. Freedom today is often viewed as personal and self-referential, with little consideration as to how one’s “freedom” might affect that of someone else. A healthy sense of the common good suffers mightily in a world of deeply conflicting personal freedoms.I have written before on the paradoxes of freedom and will not repeat all of that here,...

    JACKSON, Miss. — Jackson police have made two arrests in connection with the shooting death of Chelsie Lynn Kirschten. Kirschten, 23, was shot and killed Aug. 17 as she sat in her car waiting on a red light at Fortification and State streets, according to police. The gunman said nothing when he walked up to the driver’s side closed window of Kirschten’s white Pontiac G6 and shot her in the back, police said. A passenger in Kirschten’s car told police that the gunman, who was wearing dark clothing, didn’t take anything after the shooting and walked away, investigators said.

    President Trump has opted to remove Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director, as first reported by The New York Times. Scaramucci's removal comes 10 days after his appointment to the role, a move which caused significant shakeups in Trump's White House. The New York Times reported Monday that new White House chief of staff John Kelly requested Scaramucci's ouster, three people close to the decision told the newspaper. Kelly reportedly made clear to White House staff members that he will be in charge there following Trump's announcement he would be chief of staff last Friday. The Times reported that...

    White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci took to Twitter late Wednesday evening to complain about the leaking of his financial disclosures to Politico for a story about his earnings at an investment firm he has an ownership stake in. In that tweet, he seemed to implicate White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the leak. In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45 — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 27, 2017 Obviously, there was a lot of speculation right away that Scaramucci was directly...
  • Real Reason Behind Venezuelan Chaos

    IWB ^ | Tesseract
    Over the past few years, Venezuelan society has been rapidly deteriorating. Civil unrest has heightened to the point of rioting, looting, violent crime and a government opposition group that is keen on overthrowing Maduro’s government. Many have blamed Venezuela’s chaos on its socialist government. There are many socialist nations that aren’t in complete shambles, and many that have had some success. While I don’t agree with socialism as an ideology, I don’t believe Venezuela’s problems can be solely blamed on socialism. Something that intensely pushed Venezuela into destabilization was the oil crash of 2014. Because the price of oil dropped...

Even for them, the increase in democratic violence since 2009, the Oscar Grant shooting in Oakland, Occupy Wall Street, the George Zimmerman trial, Ferguson, Baltimore, the rise of BLM, the massive number of attacks against the Trump campaign, and inauguration, the insane reaction of the Leftopaths during the first months of Trump’s Presidency and the shooting of Republican Steve Scalise, is undeniable. The escalating string of violence from the Leftopaths is also not going unnoticed; every...

    From Thomas Wictor on Twitter (1) Boy oh boy. Remember we said that after Obama left office, we'd find out the damage he did? It's much worse than I imagined. (2) Under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice pushed the states to pass new laws. (3) The goal was to make it impossible to hold repeat offenders in jail before trial. Why? (4) Because so many repeat offenders are black. (5) The first step was to reclassify violent felonies as nonviolent misdemeanors. Look at California. (6) Assault with a deadly weapon, harming a crime victim or witness,...

    A liberal friend and I had a conversation the other day after I called her and asked what her take was on the Comey hearing. The topic of discussion was the clear statement by Comey that the news stories about the Russian manipulation of our electoral process are false. The woman first denied my supposition that the media stories were "made up" and that they had deliberately put out lies. As the conversation progressed and through calm, logical explanation that Comey had said the stories were false and my belief that those producing such stories should face libel charges for...

    Why do judges wear black robes? It’s a question few judges today seem to be asking themselves. It certainly appears not to have troubled the mind of Chief Judge Roger Gregory of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals who, it seems, must instead be a student of Jorge Luis Borges. A couple of days ago, Judge Gregory, writing for the majority, upheld a lower court’s decision against President Trump’s revised Executive Order imposing a temporary travel ban from a handful of countries identified as hotbeds of terrorist activity. As Byron York points out, the decision broke 10 to 3 along...

    Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering. In a Tuesday interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials. Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women's Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort...
