    Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has posted his support for stringent gun-control laws – a position that would be at odds with President Trump’s views. “I have always been for strong gun control laws,” Scaramucci tweeted after the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 kids were gunned down. In August 2012, he tweeted: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”

    The Senate on Thursday confirmed Rep. Mick Mulvaney to lead the Office of Management and Budget under President Donald Trump, placing the South Carolina Republican in a key White House role that holds significant sway over the administration's spending priorities. Mulvaney is one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus, the hard-line group of some 40 congressmen who have yanked the GOP conference in the chamber to the right and were instrumental in forcing out former House Speaker John Boehner in 2015. The Senate approved Mulvaney's nomination mostly along party lines, 51 to 49, with Majority Leader Mitch...

    Mike Pompeo was confirmed as CIA director by the Senate on Monday, putting the conservative Kansas congressman in charge of an agency that is bracing for its most contentious relationship with the White House in decades. As CIA director, Pompeo will be responsible for managing a global spying network at a time of escalating security problems, including renewed aggression from Russia, the nuclear ambitions of North Korea and the splintering terror threat posed by the Islamic State. But, at least initially, Pompeo’s most vexing task may involve finding a way to establish a functional relationship between the CIA and President...

    Sheldon Schorer, a representative of Democrats Abroad Israel, sat down with Arutz Sheva to discuss the decision by FBI director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as Secretary of State. Schorer was highly critical of Comey's actions. "It's a gross departure from internal FBI procedures...not to comment on investigations that are current." He also said that FBI policy is "not to make a comment than can influence an election" when the election is less than 60 days away. Schorer agreed that the reemergence of the email scandal would be harmful to...

Why did you give this money back given the problems that were decided by Mr. Smith and the fact as Mr. Conyers noted you have limited resources to begin with?” House Judiciary Chairman...

Hiller served as president of the Directors Guild of America from 1989-93...

    National Review ^ | 11/06/2015 | David French
    Quentin Tarantino is getting exactly what he wants. Over the last two weeks, he's made much-needed headlines for saying Hollywood-leftist things at a Black Lives Matter rally in New York City — conveniently inserting himself into the news before the release of his latest inevitably-terrible move, The Hateful Eight. Police groups are boycotting, and each new round of boycott and response is generating yet another day's worth of headlines, with each story conveniently mentioning his new movie. Congratulations, Quentin, you're an excellent troll. Your movies, however, are terrible. And I don't mean "morally reprehensible" or "too violent." I mean...
