    President Trump on Monday denied the hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election were campaign contributions, instead calling them a "simple private transaction.” “So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,” Trump tweeted.

    President Trump on Monday denied the hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election were campaign contributions, instead calling them a "simple private transaction.” “So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution,” Trump tweeted. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, recently admitted in a plea deal to violating federal campaign finance laws by arranging payments to Daniels and McDougal on Trump's behalf, according to the plea. Prosecutors on Friday released a sentencing memo calling for Cohen to a “substantial term...
  • Roger Waters' Plea Prompts Pink Floyd Tribute Band to Cancel Its Gigs in Israel

    Last month, a Jewish organisation in Argentina launched a petition urging people across the region to boycott Roger Waters concerts and calling the former Pink Floyd leader "one of the great anti-Semites of our time". Three gigs by UK Pink Floyd Experience, a tribute band dedicated to covering the music of the British rockers, have been cancelled after former lead singer of Pink Floyd Roger Waters urged the musicians not to perform in Israel "in the name of everything human". In a message published on his Facebook page, Waters said, in particular, that he is "aghast to see" that UK...

    While President Donald Trump has used truculence, bluster, populism, and manufactured division to hide the true nature of his agenda, George Herbert Walker Bush used manners, civility, and grace to hide the truth of his and his family’s agenda. Both are very similar in their objectives. Both have enabled the continued transfer of wealth to the upper echelons of society. Both have sought to protect the interests of corporations and rich friends. But as we witnessed this week, Bush and the Bush family were far more effective with honey than with vinegar. To wrap up this week of seemingly non-stop...

  • Fox’s Napolitano walks back claim that Trump Jr. thinks he’ll be indicted by Mueller

    Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday walked back a previous statement in which he said Donald Trump Jr. expects to be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller. "You know I did say that, and I basically was repeating what had already been out there," Napolitano said on "Fox & Friends." "I since have heard from [him], and he says he never said it. And it was an inaccurate statement." "I take him at his word," he added. The comment comes just a day after Napolitano said on the Sirius XM radio show of ABC News chief legal analyst...

    Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” the country’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson...

    Peter Wehner made Mark Levin the target of his work at Commentary lately, as an extension of his zeal to cast G. W. Bush as more of a conservative than Reagan was, and  label numerous prominent conservatives as “purists” in desperate need of moderating their tone. Levin, rejecting the notion of being lectured to by a Bush grandee responded, correcting Wehner and calling attention to his aptitude for cherry-picking facts so that he can knock down prominent conservatives, and conservative causes.Peter Wehner arrived in Washington D.C. in 1983, and never left.  He was hired by Bill Bennett as a speechwriter...

    We knew (or at least feared) that this was coming, but Friday saw the finalization of the new biofuels – specifically ethanol – blending requirements for 2019 and 2020. And true to the promises that President Trump made to Iowa politicians, we did not see any significant reductions in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) mandates. In fact, they went up, much the same as under Obama’s EPA. (EPA website)

    Israeli police have recommended indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara for alleged bribery and fraud. They are suspected of awarding regulatory favors to the Bezeq telecom firm in return for positive media coverage. Mr. Netanyahu rejected the allegations in what is known as Case 4000. The Israeli attorney-general will now have to decide whether to bring charges in the case. In February, police recommended indicting Mr. Netanyahu in two other corruption investigations......

    President Trump recently took credit for the plunge in oil prices since early October. As I noted in a recent article, it’s true that the President’s actions have contributed to the drop in oil prices, but at a cost that has been largely ignored. This week the President decided to share the credit for lower oil prices on Twitter: (tweet omitted) President Trump thanks Saudi Arabia for low oil prices. How President Trump Affected Oil Prices. Let’s review. The trade war with China resulted in China halting imports of U.S. oil. Prior to that, U.S. oil producers had been shipping...

    <p>Those in the reality-based discussion about immigration have pointed out for years that the “crisis” of illegal immigration isn’t a crisis at all and, in fact, that the outflow of people along the southern border has topped the inflow. Pew Research has released a new study confirming exactly this - and demonstrating that the progress in thwarting illegal entries was made under the George W. Bush and Obama administrations (which did not resort to child separations).</p>
  • Why did Mike Pompeo hire 'Never Trumper' Mary Kissel as a top adviser?

    News broke on Tuesday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had hired long-time "Never Trumper" and former Wall Street Journal editorial writer Mary Kissel as senior adviser for policy and strategic messaging. That’s right, a "Never Trumper" who vehemently opposed the policies Trump campaigned on is now advising Trump's secretary of state on policy. This should seem like an oxymoron, a strange coincidence, or an unbelievable stroke of luck on the part of Kissel. Sadly, for Trump supporters, it’s not. Hiring critics and firing loyalists is business as usual for the Trump administration. The outsider candidate who successfully campaigned against...

    Mary Kissel from The Wall Street Journal is one of those nasty and predictable #NeverTrump hacks on TV today. She’s so bitter and angry that your tend to mute your TV when you see her pop up on a discussion panel. But that didn’t stop the U.S. State Department from hiring the anti-Trump hack to be Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new senior adviser for policy and strategic messaging.

    It’s been about three weeks since CNN reporter Jim Acosta repeatedly told President Trump at a news conference that the migrant caravan is “hundreds and hundreds of miles away” and “not an invasion.” Acosta strenuously objected to a Trump ad that showed migrants climbing border walls: “They’re not going to be doing that.” Now, thousands of migrants from the caravan have arrived in the border city of Tijuana, Mexico. Over the weekend, hundreds of them stormed a border crossing, climbing the fence and throwing rocks. US border agents used tear gas to repel the mob. If the throng was too...

    Russia over the weekend mounted its most serious aggression against Ukraine since President Trump took office, and America punted. Trump’s outgoing ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, described the chain of events that led to the current standoff at the Black Sea as an “outrageous violation of sovereign Ukrainian territory.” She vowed that Washington and its friends would stand with Kiev. So what’s the plan? “It is our expectation that our European partners will lead this effort through the Normandy Four format,” Haley said, referring to a toothless Barack Obama-era gabfest that has mostly served to legitimize Moscow’s illegal...

    Just-defeated GOP Rep. Mia Love — who was mocked by President Trump after Election Day for supposedly not showing him sufficient loyalty — fired back at the commander-in-chief Monday. “The president’s behavior towards me made me wonder: What did he have to gain by saying such a thing about a fellow Republican,” the Utah lawmaker said in Salt Lake City. “It was not really about asking him to do more, was it? Or was it something else? Well Mr. President, we’ll have to chat about that,” she continued during her concession speech after a tight race with Democratic Rep.-elect Ben...
