    I know he’s a Democrat, I know Hannity once pulled a gun on him, but I’m still surprised to see a Fox contributor broaching the big ethical criticism of their 9 p.m. guy on their own airwaves before he’s even had a chance to address the situation on his show. Fox host Juan Williams questions Hannity's refusal to disclose his relationship with Michael Cohen:— Andrew Lawrence (@ndrew_lawrence) April 16, 2018 I wonder if Williams freelanced it or if he got the green light from management, which must be highly annoyed by Hannity’s cameo in the news today —...

    Chemical weapons inspectors in Syria will be permitted to visit the site of an alleged chemical attack on Wednesday, Russia has said. The international team has been in the country since Saturday, but has not been allowed to visit Douma. The attack on 7 April prompted military strikes on Syrian government targets by the US, UK, and France a week later. Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place - with Russia calling it a "staged thing". Early on Tuesday, Syrian state media said the country's air defences had responded to a missile attack over the western...

John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s new national security adviser, recently called Abbas Kamel, Egypt’s acting intelligence chief, to see if Cairo would contribute to the effort, officials said. The initiative comes as the administration has asked Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to...

In its latest warning, uploaded to militant Islamist messaging platforms, a man is pictured standing on the platform at New York’s High Street–Brooklyn Bridge Station with explosives and a timer behind him.

Intense clashes would breakout between the Syrian Army and ISIS terrorists shortly after the exchange of missiles and artillery, with the latter taking the offensive in a bid to capture the 16th Air Defense Regiment.

    A federal judge in Washington State has declared that all civic groups nationwide must accept people of the other sex into their single-sex spaces and activities, or else be stigmatized and sued by the federal government. In legal jargon, Judge Marsha Pechman declared in a lawsuit against the Pentagon’s “transgender” policy that the federal government must use its powers to champion people who want to live as members of the sex, either inside the military or outside, just as it must use federal powers to suppress racism: Today, the Court concludes that transgender people constitute a suspect class. Transgender people...

Syria and its ally Russia deny using poison gas during their offensive this month, in which they seized the town that had been the...

    Simon Brown served in the army for 13 years. But in 2006, during a rescue mission, he was shot by a sniper in the face. Fortunately, by some miracle, he survived, but he had to undergo several surgeries – at least 25 of them – to reconstruct his face. Brown became partially blind, his jaw, cheekbones, and nose had to be reconstructed and reshaped, and he had to use a prosthetic eye. His new appearance made him feel self-conscious, and he lost his confidence. Living independently and adjusting to life without most of his sight has been a long and...

    The special election for an Arizona House seat is in a statistical dead heat in the final week of the race, according to a poll released on Monday. A poll from Emerson College found physician Hiral Tipirneni (D) narrowly leading with 46 percent, compared to former state Sen. Debbie Lesko (R), who is at 45 percent — well within the poll’s margin of error. Monday’s poll is an outlier and a huge swing in the direction toward Democrats, with other recent polling showing Lesko winning by double-digit margins. The latest public poll on Friday from OH Predictive Insights and ABC...

    Monday night on his radio show, LevinTV host Mark Levin characterized the media freakout over Sean Hannity’s relationship with Trump attorney Michael Cohen as “a sideshow.” It’s a distraction from the real news of the day, Levin said — Comey-Clinton collusion. Levin responded to ABC News’ prime-time interview with fired FBI Director James Comey by making the case that Comey executed a “cover-up” for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Listen:
