    Rookie Baker Mayfield entered for his NFL regular-season debut late in the second quarter and brought the Browns back from a 14-0 deficit to prevail 21-17, snapping a 19-game winless streak dating back to Dec. 24, 2016 -- a span of 635 days...
  • The Turkish Hostage Crisis: Erdogan’s case against American pastor Andrew Brunson is ludicrous.

    It’s never a good idea to negotiate with a hostage-taker, but when it’s a NATO ally, there isn’t much choice. The Trump administration has been trying to get back a Christian pastor detained in Turkey since October 2016, and when a possible deal at the sidelines of the NATO summit fell through, it decided to drop the hammer. A couple of weeks ago, the administration sanctioned Turkey’s justice and interior ministers — remember, these are top officials of a fellow NATO country. The action hit the Turkish currency and stock market hard. Then President Donald Trump intervened in his inimitable...

    Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance. Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215. Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind. Incidentally, the standard trope that...

    If North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was searching for the perfect propaganda set piece, something designed to show his people that he's a strong leader pushing inexorably for the long-delayed, long-promised prosperity they deserve, then visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in might be providing him with a unique opportunity. Moon believes that his deep engagement with North Korea is crucial after last year's fears of war, when Washington reacted with fury to a torrent of ever-more-powerful North Korean weapons tests. He argues better ties with North Korea will help South Koreans, and the region, by settling the standoff over...

    If you want fresh evidence that Donald Trump has turned American politics upside down, here it is: Former Gov. Christie Whitman, a lifelong Republican, is so appalled by him that she wants Democrats to take over the House. "I'm hoping we lose the House, that would be a good thing," she said Friday. "Congress could stand up to him and could be dialing back a lot of this. They have ceded too much to this president." But be careful, she says. Don't kill the moderate Republicans, they are the ones who can help steer the country back to safe ground....

    Not by one or two points either. The lead in Tennessee is five while the lead in Arizona is seven.Both states are supposed to be gimmes for the GOP, but CNN notes that each happens to be the home of a vocal Trump critic in the Senate who’s now retiring. Tennessee is Bob Corker country whereas Arizona is the home of Jeff Flake. I wonder how many Trump-skeptic Republican voters in each state have taken the senators’ criticisms of POTUS to heart and concluded that the best message they can send to the White House is to cross over...

    A Bernie Sanders donor makes an accusation from 35 years ago with no witnesses. Democrats pounce. 38 years after Roy Moore did inappropriate things with Leigh Corfman, Corfman came forward publicly to the Washington Post and told her story. Democrats are citing Corfman as proof the GOP should treat accusations against Brett Kavanaugh from high school as credible. Except there are some major differences. Corfman told multiple people around the time Moore behaved inappropriately with her. Just because you did not read about it in the Washington Post does not mean she did not tell others at the time.

Full title: FLAKE OUT: Arizona #NeverTrump Senator Jeff Flake Opposes Vote on Kavanaugh Until Leftist Accuser Has Her Say FLAKE OUT — ARIZONA SENATOR OPPOSES VOTE ON KAVANAUGH Anti-Trump Senator Jeff Flake, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an interview Sunday evening that until he learns more about the sexual assault allegation regarding Brett Kavanaugh, he is “not comfortable voting yes” on Kavanaugh. It’s Flakes last chance to poke President Trump and the country in the eye before he rides retires and likely finds a job in the liberal media.

    President Donald Trump has one campaign yet to fulfill and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange is vowing to see that one fulfilled sooner rather later. In his words – “If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.” For almost two years, Clinton and the Deep State have been hell-bent on drumming up a ‘Trump/Russia’ collusion story that has yet to produce anything beyond made-up stories and ‘anonymous’ insiders. It seems Assange realizes time is running out for him in exile and he needs to do something to do that has evaded the President.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration will send a message to all U.S. cellphones on Thursday to test a previously unused alert system that aims to warn the public about national emergencies. The messages will bear the headline "Presidential Alert", the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement this week. Phones will make a loud tone and have a special vibration, said FEMA, which will send the alert. The test message, scheduled for 2:18 p.m. EDT on Thursday, will read: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed." The test has...

    One of the funnier comedy Trump videos on YouTube is a montage, made before he became president, of all the times Trump said China. It’s about three minutes long and is mesmerisingly hilarious. As a candidate, he talked about China ‘raping’ America. Funnily enough, that was exactly what Americans wanted to hear...Maybe Trump isn’t as stupid as he seems – and maybe his supporters aren’t as stupid as smug liberals assume. Forty per cent of Americans never leave their country, but they can see how it is being eclipsed by China. And US voters know that China doesn’t play by...

  • Let's Say Bob Woodward Is Right, How Then Should We Vote?

    If Bob Woodward’s Trump-bashing, mega-bestseller is true, how should conservatives vote in the midterms? If the White House is in chaos, led by an unqualified and out of control president, what course should we take on November 6? Woodward speaks of “a nervous breakdown of the executive power of the most powerful country in the world.” And he describes Trump as “an emotionally overwrought, mercurial and unpredictable leader.” The infamous, anonymous op-ed piece in the New York Times spoke of Trump’s leadership style, “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective” and claimed he was “amoral.” Yes, we are told, “Meetings with him...

    Arizona’s Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake has announced he’s not running for reelection, so several candidates have jumped into the open race to replace him. There are currently three frontrunners. GOP Rep.

Ward made a name for herself launching an unsuccessful conservative challenge to Sen. John McCain in 2016.McSally is the darling of the GOP establishment. She was elected to Congress in 2014, representing a swing district seat formerly held by Gabrielle Giffords. Senate Majority...
