  • Donald Trump, a champion of women? His female employees think so.

    After she joined Donald Trump's real estate business, Louise Sunshine struggled to maintain a steady weight while managing her new career alongside the busy schedules of three young children. Trump must have noticed, Sun­shine said. She recalled that he kept an unflattering photograph of her in a drawer - a "fat picture," as she called it - that he would pull out when she did something he didn't like. It was "a reminder that I wasn't perfect," said Sunshine, who worked with Trump for 15 years starting in the mid-1970s when he set about remaking Manhattan's skyline. "He just is...

    A solid majority of Americans say the United States should join an international treaty to limit the impact of global warming, but on this and other climate-related questions, opinion divides sharply along partisan lines, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll. Two-thirds of Americans support the United States joining a binding international agreement to curb growth of greenhouse gas emissions, but a slim majority of Republicans remain opposed, the poll found. Sixty-three percent of Americans -- including a bare majority of Republicans -- said they would support domestic policy limiting carbon emissions from power plants. Public support for...

    President Barack Obama was met with what appeared to be the U.N.'s version of the Oscars' "wrap-it-up" music Monday after he significantly overran his allotted time to speak at a global climate change summit. Obama was one of 147 world leaders given a three-minute slot at the COP21 conference to outline their vision for the future of the planet.The president of the free world, however, had other ideas. More than eight and a half minutes into Obama's address — and with no sign he was stopping soon — three beeps sounded across the auditorium, clearly audible to everyone present and...

    Ted Cruz on Sunday refused to address how he would handle the millions of undocumented immigrants already living in the country, despite hammering Marco Rubio this weekend for previously supporting a path to citizenship. Cruz refused to take off the table his own support of a potential path to legal status despite his cries against "amnesty." "Let's demonstrate we can stop illegal immigration, we can protect our national security interests, we can protect our law enforcement interests," Cruz said after a campaign stop in Newton, Iowa. "Then once that's done, we can have a conversation at that point about whatever...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Donald Trump says he thinks a group of black pastors meeting with him Monday had planned to endorse him for president but were pressured out of it because he "believes all lives matter." "Probably some of the Black Lives Matter folks called them up and said, 'Oh, you shouldn't be meeting with Trump because he believes all lives matter,'" Trump said Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," referring to the movement protesting against police brutality and the killing of unarmed African-Americans. Trump predicted some of the 100 black evangelical leaders would endorse him after the meeting, nonetheless....

    Russia has received additional intelligence confirming that oil from deposits controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) goes through Turkey on an industrial scale, President Vladimir Putin said speaking on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris. Moscow has grounds to suspect that the Su-24 was downed by Turkish jets on November 24 to secure illegal oil deliveries from Syria to Turkey, he said. “At the moment we have received additional information confirming that that oil from the deposits controlled by Islamic State militants enters Turkish territory on industrial scale,” he said. “We have every reason to believe...

    No election season is complete without a good scandal, and even those close to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio know that.

    November 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - The picture emerging of the man who allegedly opened fire at a Planned Parenthood facility Friday is one of a deeply troubled recluse with a history of run-ins with the law and bizarre behavior that left some of those who encountered him fearful for their safety, and many convinced that he wasn't sane. On Saturday morning Colorado Springs police identified Robert Lewis Dear, 57, of North Carolina, as the suspect in the shooting that left three dead, and another nine injured. Dear allegedly began shooting outside the Planned Parenthood facility just before noon, Mountain Time,...

    According to a report from Buzzfeed, Jeb Bush supporters and advisors have been "trying to smear" GOP rival Marco Rubio, spreading unsubstantiated rumors that the young Florida Senator had engaged in an extramarital affair. Buzzfeed's McKay Coppins reports that the Bush campaign first began becoming concerned about Rubio's ascent after he successfully charmed a series of high profile donors. In response, they launched "Homeland Security," a secret effort to discredit Rubio in the eyes of powerful donors and media figures. Rubio's team believed two high profile Bush supporters ran the campaign, including CNN analyst and self-professed Rubio advisor Ana Navarra....

    Despite the huge number of candidates, the 2016 race is now starting to have some similarities to the 2008 Republican contest with some 1996 thrown in for good measure. For all the talk about how this cycle is going to eventually come down to Cruz competing against Florida senator Marco Rubio, this contest is really a three-man race, just as 2008 was. ... Then as now, the party was divided over a candidate with a fair amount of support who was also widely disliked within the party. The difference this time, however, is that the divisive candidate is one favored...

    Donald Trump is back to criticizing Chris Christie, less than 48 hours after the New Jersey governor snagged the coveted endorsement of the New Hampshire Union Leader. The leading Republican hopeful questioned Christie's priorities on Twitter Monday, citing New Jersey voters' frustrations over their governor's frequent absences from the Garden State. Former New Jersey Gov. James Florio shared his own concerns about Christie's absence from his home state during a panel in mid-November. "Clearly there are horrendous problems to the degree that you have to be here to deal with them," Florio reportedly said. "I don't think that I could...

In a panel discussion entitled, “Censorship and Free Speech,” a human rights lawyer-turned-documentarian and two activist directors and producers discussed their personal experiences with censorship from the Left and from Hollywood.

    The Paris attacks have raised fears of terrorists slipping into Europe by posing as refugees. But in Germany, the top migrant destination, security officials have another worry: Local extremists will recruit the newcomers to join the Islamist cause once they arrive. German authorities warn that migrants seeking out Arabic-language mosques in search of the familiar are increasingly ending up at those attended by Islamist radicals. In interviews, security officials from Berlin to the southwest German state of Saarland said they have registered a sharp rise in the number of asylum-seekers attending mosques they believed attracted extremists.

    Turkish warplanes abruptly ceased violating Greek airspace after downing a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber on November 24. Previously, air intrusions made by Turkish fighter jets took place on a daily basis and amounted to thousands a year. The data comes from a diplomatic source in Athens, cited by RIA Novosti. The last time Turkish warplanes were spotted in Greek airspace was on November 25, when six jets, two of them carrying weapons, entered the neighbor's aerial domain.Intrusions of Turkish jets into Greek national airspace remain a constant headache for Athens. Turkey and Greece, while partners in NATO, have been adversaries...

    Nuclear Charade: The Obama administration admits to Congress that its nuclear pact with Iran has not been signed by the Iranian regime and has no legal force. Obama's "tough diplomacy" is puff diplomacy. The White House's latest updated "Strategy for American Innovation" left one innovation out: diplomatic pacts with other countries that don't have to be signed. Maybe President Obama will say that it saves the taxpayers money, since it eliminates signing ceremonies in lavish locales. Going back to when, as a candidate, he expressed a willingness to talk directly with Iran, then through months of negotiations on its nuclear...

    Pope Francis has told worshippers in a mosque in the Central African Republic that "Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters". He was speaking to Muslims who had sought shelter in the capital Bangui after nearly three years of violence between Christians and Muslims. The mosque visit was seen as perhaps the most difficult part of his Africa tour, a BBC correspondent says. Pope Francis then held the final Mass of his Africa trip in Bangui. He was speaking in Latin, which was then translated into the local Sango language. His message of reconciliation appeared to have an immediate impact,...

    Slower warming than predicted gives the world time to develop better energy technologies The climate change debate has been polarized into a simple dichotomy. Either global warming is "real, man-made and dangerous," as Pres. Barack Obama thinks, or it's a "hoax," as Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thinks. But there is a third possibility: that it is real, man-made and not dangerous, at least not for a long time. This "lukewarm" option has been boosted by recent climate research, and if it is right, current policies may do more harm than good. For example, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the...

    Ohio Gov.John Kasich today would not commit to supporting frontrunner Donald Trump as the party's nominee, saying that he did not expect the real estate mogul to win. "I think he's very divisive and I do not believe he will last," Kasich said when asked if he would support Trump if he wins the Republican primary. Kasich pointed to Trump's recent back and forth with TheNew York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski as a reason he won't win the nomination. Trump has drawn criticism this week for appearing to mimic Kovaelski's mannerisms, caused by a muscular disorder, which Kasich said Trump...

    LE BOURGET, France (AP) -- Addressing the twin threats of global warming and extremist violence, the largest group of world leaders ever to stand together kicked off two weeks of high-stakes climate talks outside Paris on Monday, saying that by striking an ambitious deal to cut emissions they can show terrorists what countries can achieve when they are united. "What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it?" President Barack Obama asked his fellow world leaders.

    Russian Su-34 bombers, additionally equipped with air-to-air missiles, have set out on their first mission in Syria, said Igor Klimov, spokesman for the Russian Air Force."Today, Russian Su-34 fighter-bombers have made their first sortie equipped not only with high explosive aviation bombs and hollow charge bombs, but also with short- and medium-range air-to-air missiles," Klimov said. "The planes are equipped with missiles for defensive purposes," he added. The missiles have target-seeking devices and are "capable of hitting air targets within a 60km radius," he said.

    None of us knows how this election is going to play out, but the one thing that we can say is that this has been the most entertaining presidential primary season ever. By far the most amusing part has been the utter state of panic the GOP establishment has been in since the voters took a look at their "electability" candidate, Jeb Bush, and started laughing. Since then one nightmare has followed another. If I'd had the foresight, I could have financed my children's college expenses by selling brown trousers to the US Chamber of Commerce and the GOP Senate...

    Here’s a lead that the Washington Post has never written:To many religious liberty advocates, it seemed only a matter of time before something like this happened. Ever since the summer, when the Southern Poverty Law Center called the Family Research Council a hate group for its opposition to same-sex marriage, threats against the organization increased. But on Wednesday, their worst fears came true: A man walked into their offices carrying Chik-Fil-A sandwiches and opened fire.Police have not yet identified a clear motive for the shooting …You probably never read this lead at the Washington Post in 2010, either:To many...
  • Rubio Ready to Admit More Terrorists to USA, Cruz Ready to be Commander-in-Chief

    Conservatives are coming together to rebut a bogus attack on Senator Ted Cruz launched by a shadowy Super PAC aligned with establishment Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio. Rubio and his Big Money allies have attacked Cruz for voting for the USA Freedom Act, when 67 senators were in favor of the measure and 32 against, with many of those in opposition saying the bill did not go far enough to protect privacy and curtail federal snooping into the communications of innocent American citizens. Rubio's criticism of Cruz puts him (once again) on the same side as establishment Republican Senate Majority...

    As American youth regress toward an infantile state of development, one university president has finally had enough of the nonsense.  Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, had a wake-up call recently that prompted him to write an open letter to the student body. So what happened that caused him to speak out against this madness?  Per a report at TheBlaze: “This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt ‘victimized’ by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13,” Piper explained in his letter posted to the...

    The left will tell you we need more government involvement in healthcare. What they don’t realize is that increased regulation and government involvement are exactly what caused healthcare costs to rise dramatically over the past 30 years. There are several reasons why government-run healthcare is a disaster. Economist explain how the government subsidized third party payer system separates consumers from prices and how such a system kills competition. But there is an even more immediate effect– the booming costs of administering a system of complex regulations. Government healthcare necessitates armies of bureaucrats. Take Medicare, for instance: not only does every...

    Allow me to generalize: no. The answer is no. No, Yale is not a hotbed of racism. Neither is Dartmouth. Neither is Columbia. Neither is Princeton. No reasonable person of color on any of these campuses really believes that he suffers interminable racial discrimination sanctioned by such institutions. The best inducement to cathartic rage the Ivy Leaguers can find is strips of black electric tape on some old portraits (unclear whether it's a hoax) or the last name of one of the more progressive Democrats in history. You know you're desperate when your slogan is "We Will Not Surrender...

    The Treasury Department released new rules last week to stop the steady stream of American companies relocating overseas to reduce their tax bills. But instead of fixing the cause of the problem -- one of the highest corporate-tax rates in the world -- the government is creating new ones by introducing retroactive penalties that undermine the rule of law. Treasury's latest rule changes come as New York-based pharmaceutical company Pfizer finalizes negotiations with Ireland-based Allergan for a merger that will headquarter the combined firm in Ireland. Pfizer will join a growing list of companies that have recently moved their headquarters...

    With Wall Street shops like Goldman Sachs (GS) and government officials in Venezuela signaling oil could go to the mid-$20 per barrel range next year, analysts at places like RBC Capital Markets have been warning that chronically low oil prices plunging towards seven year lows means increasing social chaos in countries on the edge including those battling ISIS. Five countries are high on the radar screen for societal risks from low oil prices, which RBC Capital Markets has labeled the Fragile Five. They are Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, and Venezuela. ISIS operatives are believed to be in most of these...

    Pro-Life leaders are furious with presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson for his comments yesterday that pro-life rhetoric is partially responsible for the shootings that took place in Colorado last week. On CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday morning, Carson said, “Hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation…You don’t ever solve them [problems] with hateful rhetoric. Both sides should tone down the rhetoric and engage in civil discussion.” On ABC’s This Week Carson said, “There’s a lot of extremism coming from all areas. We get into our separate corners and we hate each other, we want to destroy those with whom we disagree.” In...
