    Pure, evil insanity is currently running our nation and world. President Donald J. Trump is a blessing from God, a speed-bump on the road to the devil's final, highly-organized, terrible regime. President Trump is a decent man who loves his country. We're watching in astonishment as these harpies from hell's media and bureaucracy swarm the President with incessant, glaring lies and a devilish coup abounding; while the truly lawless from the highest levels of power in The Swamp go lauded and unpunished. I thank God that Jesus has this. The Lord IS coming back to set things right. We just...

    The U.S. Army has not and will not approve enlistment waivers for individuals with a history of self-mutilation or other documented serious mental health conditions, the Armys top general said Wednesday. Gen. Mark Milley, the Armys chief of staff, said recruitment standards have not been adjusted to meet hefty accession goals as the service looks to grow its force for the second consecutive year, calling a USA Today report that indicated the service would accept some individuals with past mental health issues mischaracterized. The report cited internal Army documents and listed conditions including self-mutilation, bipolar disorder, depression or drug or...

    Congressional lawmakers raised concerns about President Donald Trump's ability to use nuclear weapons during a hearing Capitol Hill Tuesday amid bipartisan anxiety over launch process procedures and indications that the administration has considered the option of a first strike on North Korea. Members of the Senate foreign affairs committee called into question a decades-old presidential authority to deploy nuclear weapons in what was the first congressional hearing on nuclear authorization in decades. "We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order...

    The U.S. Army quietly relaxed standards over the summer to allow potential recruits to receive waivers for a host of previous mental health issues including self-mutilation. A 2017 recruiting goal of 80,000 new soldiers through September appears to be at the root of a decision to reverse a 2009 waiver ban on mental health issues. Documents obtained over the weekend by USA Today show a willingness to consider applicants with a history of bipolar disorder, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse.

    Wednesday night on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," (tr) Hillary Clinton dismissed calls for her to retire from politics as "rank sexism." She also listed two other reasons why she won't be "going away" anytime soon. Noah asked Clinton, "Looking at the Democratic Party now, looking at Hillary Clinton, one thing far too many people say and I have my own opinions on this is why won't you just go away?" Fading from the limelight after a presidential loss, and allowing your party to find a new standard-bearer, is common practice. But Clinton seems uninterested. "You know,...

The invitation led to the resignation of former CIA Director Michael Morell as a senior fellow. Current CIA Director Mike Pompeo also canceled an event in light of this...

    Piers Morgan clashed with sacked L'Oreal transgender model Munroe Bergdorf on Good Morning Britain over her statement that 'all white people are racist'. Morgan marked his return to the show with a fiery interview opposite Bergdorf, who made the headlines last week after she was fired by L'Oreal Paris for a lengthy Facebook rant. During the post she fumed: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people.' Morgan took the model to task over the comments and said they were 'deeply offensive' and a 'load of rubbish'. Bergdorf...

    With a dizzying fanfare, she was brought in as the 'face of modern diversity'. In a lengthy Facebook rant, she wrote: 'Honestly I don't have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. 'Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***.
