    Barack Obama’s legacy may be under attack by President Trump — but he still has bragging rights as the most admired man in the world, according to a new Gallup poll. The poll found 17 percent of people questioned named Obama the man they admired most, a drop from 22 percent last year. Trump took second place with 14 percent, while Hillary Clinton was named the most admired woman for the 16th year in a row, with 9 percent of mentions, Gallup found. Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times in a row, trailing only Dwight...

    Seventy-six-year-old Congressman John Lewis once did something so heroic, so noble, that it helped to change the course of a nation for the better. The Georgia Democrat was beaten up savagely by white Southern racists in 1965, and everyone appreciates very much his personal sacrifice to advance civil rights. But what has this radical leftist blowhard done for America lately? Like the civil rights movement he served, he has become corrupt and destructive. He is a hateful old man who lies about his political adversaries and spews ugliness.

    This is John Lewis. Because of something he did a very long time ago, he's better than you. He is above common courtesy and civility. He can insult you. He could poison puppies. He could even kill you. And you are not allowed to dare question any of it. Well, over the weekend he picked a fight with Donald Trump. Trump had the temerity to respond and now Lewis wallows in victimhood. Lewis did something admirable fifty years ago and has been living off of it ever since. Lewis uses it as a shield when he picks fights. He uses...

    U.S. civil rights activists vowed on Saturday to defend hard-fought gains in voting rights and criminal justice during the presidency of Donald Trump, kicking off a week of protests ahead of the Republican's inauguration. – Reuters From a silly “Cough-In” at one of Trump’s restaurants to John Lewis’s declaration that he would be skipping the inauguration in protest, to Rosie O’Donnell’s plan to swear John McCain in as an emergency interim president, the Left was hard at work organizing against America this week. Their one remaining grievance – that butt for Russia we would be preparing to inaugurate America’s...

    In Washington, it’s all political. So was civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis‘ attack on President-elect Donald Trump, calling him “illegitimate” on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” vowing to boycott the inauguration, and saying he wouldn’t invite Mr. Trump to Selma. “By going to Selma,” Mr. Lewis said of Mr. Trump, “maybe he would learn something.” But, he added, “I would not invite him to come.” NBC advanced some of Mr. Lewis‘ comments on the Friday before the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Two of John Lewis’ books have sold out on Amazon after the Democratic congressman claimed the top spots on the retailer’s best-seller list. Sales of the civil rights leader’s graphic novel “March” and his 2015 memoir “Walking With the Wind” skyrocketed following his feud with President-elect Donald Trump over the Martin Luther King Jr.

    American Thinker ^ | January 15, 2017 | Thomas Lifson
    The people who want to destroy the Trump presidency demand that John Lewis, be awarded absolute moral authority (shades of Cindy Sheehan) for his public denial of the legitimacy of the next commander-in-chief. At least that is the conclusion one must draw from the torrent of abuse Donald Trump has received for his tweets suggesting that Lewis should better spend his time helping his constituents. Lewis is invariably described as a “civil rights icon,” but the man is an utter fraud. He has been coasting on his 50-year-old reputation for decades. Andrew Breitbart exposed Lewis as a liar when he...

    Tyler DurdenJanuary 16, 2017 As Congressman John Lewis - a prominent civil rights era figure - continues to shun the president-elect (for his illegitimacy), it appears none other than Martin Luther King Jr.'s son is willing to give him a chance. Trump's incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, announced via Twitter that the two will meet and discuss the civil rights leader's legacy. John Lewis remains indignant to facts and the US constitution... But Martin Luther King Jr.'s son appears willing to cross the chasm of propaganda and discuss his father's civil rights' legacy...

Barry died Nov. 23 at age 78. He served four terms as mayor and leaves a legacy as the most famous, the most beloved and the most divisive local leader in four decades of District of Columbia self-rule.

    WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter. Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended. Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43...

    President Obama in an interview released Sunday said that using marijuana was not that different from smoking cigarettes nor any more dangerous than drinking alcohol. “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” Obama said as part of an extensive profile published by the New Yorker on Sunday. “I don't think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced Tuesday that he plans to order flags on public buildings to fly at half-staff on the day of Whitney Houston's funeral to honor the songstress and Jersey native.

He said he will sign the order later in the week after Houston's family makes a final decision regarding time and place of the funeral. A Newark...
