    WASHINGTON (AP) - Repairing the nation's crumbling roads and bridges was supposed to be an area ripe for bipartisan compromise between congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump. Instead, Democrats are panning Trump's proposed $1 trillion overhaul and even Republicans are balking at some aspects of the emerging plan. The White House's self-proclaimed "Infrastructure Week" began with Trump appearing Monday with aviation officials and some prominent GOP lawmakers to announce plans to privatize the nation's air traffic control system and separate operations from the Federal Aviation Administration.

    After Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was shot yesterday, many liberals on twitter CELEBRATED and said things like,“The Only Good Fascist is a Dead One.”“That’s a Shame but babies blown to bits at Sandy Hook was worse and Scalise takes money from the @NRA” “If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP leadership considered self defense?” “If KKK support Steve Scalise dies, the shooter deserves a holiday, true leadership.

    A good friend just asked me this morning, "What would have happened if a conservative were to have tried to shoot Democrat legislators?" He went on to say that all hell would have broken loose in the media and across the country. Conservatives, however, have not had violent, in-the-street demonstrations and calls for reprisal.

    The spotlight has been on President Trump's legal jeopardy. But inside the small circle of top Republicans who advise this White House, there's increasing concern that future political problems are stacking up. One of the oldest (and most trusted) hands in America told a large group of CEOs in New York City on Friday: "Simply put, Trump has lost control of his presidency. He still has all the power of the office, but for someone who spent a portion of his life in real estate litigation, he shows once again he has not learned the first rule of legal combat:...

    CNBC ^ | June 5, 2017 | Jeff Cox
    President Donald Trump appears ready to remake the Federal Reserve in an image that will be considerably different than what investors have known for many years. The president is prepared to nominate Randal Quarles and Marvin Goodfriend to two of three vacancies at the central bank, according to multiple press accounts that have not been disputed by the administration. Quarles likely would assume the role vacated by Daniel Tarullo to oversee the nation's banking system. White House officials did not respond to a CNBC request for comment. Should Trump nominate the two men and they receive confirmation, it will represent...

    Highly recommend this 3:45 video clip!!! [excellent video clip of Ambassador Bolton explaining that the real issue about the "Paris Accord" is all about the left's efforts to enact global governance over the USA and all nations. China and India (huge emitters) would not even have to begin to consider limits before 2030, but meanwhile the international bureaucrats would get their hooks deeper into the USA and every country. President Trump says NO to the global bureaucracy.]

    Plagiarism allegations the latest attack on the would-be DHS official Allegations of academic plagiarism are the latest weapon the left-wingers of the mainstream media are using in an effort to take down Milwaukee County, Wisc., Sheriff David Clarke. The Lefts politics of personal destruction played no small role in the defeat at the polls last November of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R). More recently, the Left played a role in the departure of top-rated Fox News host Bill OReilly, and now that they smell conservative blood in the water, the character assassins at the George Soros-funded Media Matters...

    When we hear the name Le Pen in relation to French politics its most often a reference to Marine Le Pen, the losing candidate in the recent presidential elections. But this is something of a family business and the latest headline has to do with her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen. She was the youngest woman elected to the legislature since the French Revolution and has been widely viewed as more of a rival to her aunt than a teammate because of her distinctly more socially conservative views. Her time in the political spotlight is over now, however, at least for...

    Unfortunately, broadcast television networks today are not interested in appealing to the massive Trump electorate Despite healthy ratings, ABC promptly cancelled Tim Allens popular sitcom, Last Man Standing this week. The show was a successful part of the ABC line-up for six years. While some media reports claim that ABC cancelled the show due to poor ratings, the truth is that the program was the second highest rated comedy and the third highest rated scripted show on the network. In fact, during the final years of the show, Last Man Standing drew an impressive average of 8.1 million viewers each...

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership.

    By now, everyone has had a full day to view and process the results of the 2017 French presidential elections. In an election that upended the power of the top two political parties in France, which are Les Republicains and the Parti Socialiste, independent candidate Emmanuel Macron defeated Marine Le Pen of the Front National with 66 percent of the vote compared to Le Pens 34 percent. This victory by Macron, a pro-EU candidate who identifies as a centrist, upends a global trend of populism that began with Brexit and peaked at the election of President Donald Trump in the...

    #IStandWithJimDeMint I am told that there is a coup underway by the GOP coupled with the Bannon/Brietbart alliance to take control of the Heritage Foundation. Is it the Mercer family that is behind this? The GOP didnt like the conservative principles that Jim DeMint stood for. They claim that Jim focused on the action side and the white paper side suffered. We dont need any more think tanks. The constitutional advocates need more DO Tanks!!!!! The word is that Bannon will replace DeMint at Heritage. All of that money and power in the hands of Steve Bannon is enough to...

The group is concerned that Fox News is moving too far left...

    Fox News star Sean Hannity is looking to leave the network and may be out by the end of the week, according to a Daily Beast report. Hannity was a long-time ally of Fox News co-president Bill Shine, who resigned from the network Monday morning. Hannity defended Shine on Twitter as the executive came under scrutiny for his role in Foxs sexual harassment controversy since Roger Ailes departure from the network last summer. In a series of tweets last week, Hannity said that Shines departure would be the total end of the FNC as we know it, and used the...

    Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify white power. Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House, Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture. Ms...
