    Vice President Pence’s travel to and from the Indianapolis Colts game he walked out of Sunday is estimated to have cost taxpayers more than $200,000, CNN reported Monday. Pence flew from Las Vegas to the game in Indianapolis Sunday, before flying to California later Sunday afternoon. According to the report, the aircraft Pence used to travel, the C-32, costs about $30,000 an hour to operate. His flight to Indianapolis took about 3 hours and 20 minutes, and his flight to Los Angeles was about 4 hours and 45 minutes. That adds up to a price tag of about $242,500, according...

    WASHINGTON — Vice President Mike Pence reaffirmed the Trump administration’s commitment to addressing persecution of Christians around the world and urged Americans to call the targeting of Christians by Islamic terrorists genocide during a speech Thursday. “Throughout the world, no people of faith today face greater hostility or hatred than the followers of Christ,” Pence said at the World Summit In Defense of Persecuted Christians, organized by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).

    The “Hamilton” actor who drew fire from Donald Trump for addressing Vice President-elect Mike Pence from the stage said Monday he’s not apologizing — and invited the president-elect to come see the Broadway smash himself. Brandon Victor Dixon said he spoke to Pence on behalf of the cast at the request of show producer Jeffrey Seller and has no regrets for being the face of Friday night’s controversial monologue. “There’s nothing to apologize for,” the actor told “CBS This Morning.” “When you have a platform, art is meant to bring people together and meant to raise consciousness. And when you...

    As Donald Trump holds off endorsing House Speaker Paul D. Ryan in Wisconsin's Republican primary, his running mate enthusiastically endorsed Ryan on Wednesday, calling him a “longtime friend” and “strong conservative leader.” “I strongly support Paul Ryan, strongly endorse his reelection,” Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said during an interview on Fox News on Wednesday afternoon. “I believe we need Paul Ryan in leadership in the Congress of the United States to rebuild our military, to strengthen our economy and to ensure that we have the kind of leadership in this country that will make America great again.” Trump has angered...

    There are only two things I can tell you today that come with absolutely no agenda. The first is "Congratulations." The second is "Good luck." Everything else is what I like to call, "The Dirty Truth," which is just another way of saying, "It's my opinion." And in my opinion, you have all been given some terrible advice, and that advice, is this: Follow your passion. Every time I watch the Oscars, I cringe when some famous movie star--trophy in hand--starts to deconstruct the secret of their success. It's always the same thing: "Don't let anyone tell you that you...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, March 28 (UPI) -- Iraqi TV showed three Iraqi spies it said were recruited by the CIA to provide information on military camps, police posts and Baath Party centers. The official TV station said Friday three satellite telephones and a quantity of TNT were seized from the three men who confessed to spying for the United States. One of the men identified himself as 48-year-old Farid Ahmed Hammadi, married with six children, and said he was recruited by two people who live in his neighborhood. He named them as Maguid and Ahmed. "I received this equipment (Ath Thuraya...

    We knew back in September that the Colorado Republican Party had made a major error when it dumped the presidential preference poll in the midst of maybe the wildest Republican race ever. (SNIP) He thinks of the 11 states in play that Rubio has a shot at two – Minnesota and Virginia. But his best shot, he writes, would have been Colorado, with its mix of voters that run to the highly educated and to the highly religious, which would have been a good mix for Rubio, who is being supported by Cory Gardner and most of the GOP establishment.

    Rapper Killer Mike drew attention late Tuesday after saying during a rally for Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders that a "uterus doesn't qualify you to be president." The rapper said he was repeating something a woman said when he made the comment while ripping Sanders' rival Hillary Clinton. "When people tell us 'hold on, wait a while' - that's what the other Democrat is telling you," Michael Render, who goes by his stage name Killer Mike, told more than 4,800 gathered at Morehouse College in Atlanta. "Hold on Black Lives Matter, just wait a while. Hold on young people in...

    DES MOINES, Iowa – A fairly well-known anti-gun sheriff seems to have shot himself in the hand on Wednesday night while cleaning his firearm. Des Moines County Sheriff Mike Johnstone negligently discharged a round into his left hand, and was subsequently transported to the hospitals emergency room. His injury has been described by medical personnel as non-life threatening, but a hand surgeon was called in to assist. According to the Iowa Firearms Coalition, Johnstone has advocated for more and more gun-free zones. But perhaps Johnstone is most well-known for his statement from 5 years ago. When Iowa’s concealed carry law...

    And now, I present the super amazing transformation timeline of Mike Huckabee on common core. ———- Mid 2013: “These standards, known as Common Core State Standards, have been near and dear to my heart since I served as Governor of your neighboring state of Arkansas. And it’s disturbing to me there have been criticisms of these standards directed by other conservatives including the RNC. The truth of the matter is, these criticisms are short-sighted. Like many of you, I’ve heard the argument these standards “threaten local control” of what’s being taught in Oklahoma classrooms. Speaking from one conservative to another,...

Please allow me to explain. Your extra credit assignment will be completed...

    A potential presidential candidate makes a stop in Fargo. Florida Senator Marco Rubio was a guest at the North Dakota Republican Party fundraiser stating that the state is the envy of the nation and that other states can learn from North Dakota's leaders. Senator Rubio was welcomed by a crowd of Republican supporters with a message that the American Dream is still alive. He says that he's sensitive to the challenges that all Americans face to achieve that dream and praised Senator John Hoeven and Congressman Kevin Cramer for the critical roles they play in Washington.
