    A new interview with Mitch McConnell this week showed the first cracks in the wall of his optimism about the midterms. While not going down a path of gloom and doom, he no longer sounds positive of breaking a long-standing trend of the party in power losing ground in such scenarios. He’s not coming out and saying the GOP’s majorities in both chambers are toast, but he seems to think they’ll be losing seats. (The Hill) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says in a new interview that he expects to see GOP majorities in the House and Senate shrink...

    Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Ind., will introduce legislation that helps Americans keep more of the bonuses they receive by making them tax-free. The legislation, “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings”—known as the CRUMBS Act—also takes a swipe at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly downplayed the significance of the bonuses some Americans are receiving thanks to the GOP tax plan by referring to them as “crumbs.”“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on — it’s so pathetic,” she told reporters last...

    A Republican lawmaker is set to unveil legislation that would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump's tax reform plan tax-free -- and took a jab at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with the bill's name. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has dubbed his bill the "Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings" -- or "CRUMBS" Act. Pelosi, D-Calif., famously referred to the bonuses as "crumbs" in criticizing the tax plan last month. "Americans are receiving thousands of dollars in bonuses and more money in their paychecks thanks to President Trump's tax reform, but out-of-touch Democratic...

    Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam. Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours...

    While commenting on President Donald Trump's very public support for Christianity, as well as the frequent Bible studies and prayer gatherings held at the White House, evangelical Pastor Paul Begley said first lady Melania Trump demanded that the White House be spiritually cleansed and that pagan, demonic items and artificats from the Obama and Clinton years be removed.Melania Trump reportedly said, "I’m not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised," according to Pastor Begley.

    An Indiana prosecutor criticized President Trump for his comments Tuesday after police said the man accused of killing an Indianapolis Colts linebacker in a suspected drunk-driving accident was an undocumented immigrant. Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a statement that comments politicizing the fatal crash were "ghoulish and inappropriate," The Associated Press reported on Wednesday. Curry said that his office would "vigorously prosecute" the case, according to the AP. “We are disheartened that ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary has politicized this tragedy,” Curry, a Democrat, said. “Much of such commentary, including tweets by the president, fails to acknowledge that...

    A Chicago rapper who filmed himself in a music video with a gun at a Deerfield hotel was sentenced recently to 15 years in prison. The aspiring rapper, Ricardo Burgos, 31, possessed the gun in January 2016 and he can be seen in the video holding two firearms while rapping about selling drugs, committing acts of violence and disrespecting law enforcement, according to a release by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He performs under the name Nation, and he had been previously arrested and convicted of multiple felonies and he was not legally allowed to possess a firearm, according to...

    Vice President Pence did something unthinkable in Jerusalem last week: he referenced the bible in support of Israel’s right to exist. “The Jewish people held fast to a promise through all the ages, written so long ago, that ‘even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens,’ from there He would gather and bring you back to the land which your fathers possessed.” Few politicians today, and probably not any in Western Europe, would express themselves in similar terms. Moderns can reverence Marx, Lenin, and Marcuse with impunity, but not Moses. But as Orwell stated,...

    Indiana Representative Jim Lucas has re-introduced a Constitutional Carry bill in the Indiana legislature.In 2017, Lucas lead the fight to bring Constitutional Carry to Indiana. He was heavily opposed by the Indiana Media. He fought back by proposing a bill to require professional journalists to be fingerprinted and submit an application to the state to be approved for a journalist license, in order to exercise their freedom of the press.It was a nice bit of satire, fighting back against an agenda driven media. While the Constitutional Carry bill did not pass, a non-scientific poll at wane.com showed 84 percent in...

    Netanyahu in Davos: Not only does Iran spread terror all over the world, it openly says it will use its weapons to destroy Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke on Thursday evening at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Netanyahu criticized the nuclear deal with Iran and said, "I think that the current agreement is so flawed that it promises that Iran will have everything necessary to create nuclear weapons, including the enrichment of fissile material on a huge scale.” “What they can do today, at best, is enrich uranium for one bomb. Under the current agreement, they will...

    [clip] America once again strides the global stage and it started Wednesday, December 6, 2017, when from the White House, Trump announced the following: “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” Since that moment, that big shining moment, nothing has been the same. In reaction to those words – sweetness to lovers of Liberty and Zion, bitterness to the others -- tyrannies (like North Korea and Iran) trembled, alliances (between the European Union and the Palestinian Authority) were shattered, and more of our enemies went scattering for refuge among think-alike regimes,...

    President Donald Trump “burst the Palestinian Arabs’ bubble”, Middle East expert and regular Arutz Sheva contributor Dr. Mordechai Kedar said on Thursday. “The Palestinians are very disappointed because they built an entire building by claiming they will get a Palestinian state. Who will give them such a thing? Nobody. They dream about the ‘return’ of the ‘Palestinian refugees’ not to ‘Palestine’ but to the same villages in which they lived in Tel Aviv, in Netanya. These are all dreams, and now Trump came and took out the Jerusalem card from the building, as well as the issue of the refugees...

    JERUSALEM -- When Vice President Mike Pence wrapped up his address to Israel's Knesset, a voice in the 120-member legislative body shouted out, "God bless you, Mr. Vice President." The voice belonged to Yehuda Glick, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative Likud Party. It was not all love. Members of the Knesset, or MKs, who are part of the Joint List (an alliance of Arab-dominated parties) boycotted or protested Pence's speech to protest President Donald Trump's announcement last month that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv....

    I reported this weekend on reports that the U.S. planned to move our Embassy from Tel Aviv, to Israel’s capital Jerusalem, by the end of 2019.This timetable, which was faster than the 3-4 years previously discussed for building a new Embassy, was based on renovating the existing U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, the main location of which was built in 2010 and is actually larger than the Tel Aviv embassy. Those reports were confirmed today when VP Mike Pence addressed the Israeli parliament, the Knesset. Pence, the first American VP afforded that honor, was given a rousing welcome by Israeli Prime...

    Vice President Mike Pence’s address to the Knesset Monday afternoon, the first by a senior American official in a decade, was praised by a number of Israeli officials from across the political spectrum, who noted the Vice President’s pledge to bar Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and a time-table for the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, however, expressed a more personal reaction to the speech, saying that he had been so touched by it as to have been moved to tears.

    US Vice President Mike Pence told Israel’s Knesset on Monday that Washington was intending to bring forward a controversial plan by the Trump administration to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “In the weeks ahead, our administration will advance its plan to open the US Embassy in Jerusalem — and the embassy will open before the end of next year,” Pence said. The intention to move the embassy, which has been condemned by the Palestinians and their Arab allies, was agreed in theory by US lawmakers years ago but was set in motion by US President Donald...
