    An Indiana woman and her girlfriend gave her son marijuana dozens of times in the last three months as a reward for the boy’s good behavior, court records stated. Susan Glascock and Melissa Burton, both 36, were charged with child neglect after the boy told police he was being rewarded with marijuana for his good behavior and had the drug taken away when he was behaving badly, FOX59 reported. Police began investigating the family on June 25 when officers responded to a disturbance at the home in Greenfield. Glascock was upset about the amount of money the boy and...

    Nearly a year after Donald Trump was elected president, the Republican coalition is deeply divided on such major issues as immigration, America’s role in the world and the fundamental fairness of the U.S. economic system. The Democratic coalition is largely united in staunch opposition to President Trump. Yet, while Trump’s election has triggered a wave of political activism within the party’s sizable liberal bloc, the liberals’ sky-high political energy is not nearly as evident among other segments in the Democratic base. And Democrats also are internally divided over U.S. global involvement, as well as some religious and social issues.

    Help! President Donald Trump so completely controls my mind that I have been physically weakened to the extent that I can even open jars!

Delaney made her revelation of Trump's complete domination of her mind and body in I stopped going to the gym because of Trump. Now I can't open jars:

The Monmouth MP, who collaborated with the Leave.EU-backed Grassroots Out campaign as well as the establishment Vote Leave outfit during the EU referendum, made frequent threats to resign during his time as leader of the newly-created Department for Exiting the European Union, reportedly due to persistent efforts by the Remain-supporting Prime Minister and her main adviser, Soviet-sympathizing bureaucrat Olly Robbins, to undermine his negotiations with Brussels."

    Washington (CNN) - Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday called for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be replaced with an agency that reflects America's morality and "that works," joining the growing chorus of Democrats who have called for the agency to be scrapped. "The President's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious -- we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works," Warren said at an immigration protest against family separations in Boston, Massachusetts, which was among hundreds of marches, protests and rallies taking...

    Maria Bartiromo continues to distance herself from all Sunday talk-show competition with some of the best and most insightful interviews and topics available. Today Mrs. Bartiromo interviews President Donald Trump. The substantive content is excellent. From a position of understanding Trump policy, and expanding/predicting how each policy will carry forward, this really is one of the best interviews to date. Bartiromo hits on most topics of interest and expands on the topics of greatest consequence. Anyone who seeks to understand where the administration is going with economics and trade only needs to keep revisiting this one interview – it’s all...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been "painful" and "uncomfortable," but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue. "They're hard, they're painful, they're uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about," Scott told CNN's Van Jones. "He didn't change his perspective, I certainly can't change my perspective." But Scott also said that he was "hopeful" after the conversations. "The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful," Scott recalled. "It closed...
  • Mainstream media is silent as FEC records indicate Clinton campaign laundered $84 million

    If this were Donald Trump’s campaign, we’re sure this would be breaking news everywhere. But, since it has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with the Clinton machine, the mainstream media’s silence on the matter makes it clear they’re not interested in honesty or truth. According to Fox News, “The Committee to Defend the President, a political action committee, filed its complaint with the FEC on Monday with the allegations that the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) solicited cash from big-name donors, including Calvin Klein and ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane — money that was allegedly sent through...

    As the hard-hitting questions remain about the Russia probe, and the way the FBI, special counsel, and the DOJ handled the investigation, Rod Rosenstein sits before the House of Representatives. When Trey Gowdy was given his time, Trey Gowdy owns Rod Rosenstein during the latest Congressional hearing. Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) criticized Justice Department investigators for prolonging their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election during a tense House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.

    George Will has been writing columns for a long, long time, and has been considered a highly influential columnist on the right. But I never have read him much; I'm not sure why, but he just never appealed to me.You'd think he would appeal to me. After all, when I experienced my political change, I considered myself (and still do consider myself, in certain ways) to be a relatively moderate conservative. Will was supposedly a moderate as well. But I found his writing boring and uninsightful for the most part.Just now I wondered whether I just wasn't remembering correctly. Maybe...

He added that it was also possible the military academy could seek repayment of the cost of Rapone’s education because he did not serve the full five-year service obligation required upon graduation.

    Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, announced the decision on Tuesday evening, saying that the US could no longer be part of a UN body that was a “protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias.” “Look at the council membership and you see an appalling disrespect for human rights,” she said, citing member countries China, Venezuela, Russia, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Egypt. She went on to speak at length about how the council displayed a “chronic anti-Israel bias” and was “not worthy of its name.”

    Barack Obama was born in the U.S. It was his own book publisher that started the false rumor that he was born in Kenya. NPR later repeated the false claim. Barack Obama was born in the U.S.According to this 2012 article from ABC News, in 1991 Obama’s own book publisher printed a paper pamphlet which said that Obama was “born in Kenya.” An employee of the publisher said that it was a “fact checking error” of hers that caused this to happen, and that the false information did not come from Obama.

    Iranian officials, in a first, have admitted to facilitating the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. by secretly aiding the free travel of al Qaeda operatives who eventually went on to fly commercial airliners into the Twin Towers in New York City, according to new remarks from a senior Iranian official. Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran's judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran's state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya....

    Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats whose federal court case has drawn the interest of President Trump, is poised to strike a plea deal with prosecutors, court filings indicate. A Tuesday filing said a plea agreement hearing for Awan and his wife Hina Alvi has been set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington. The filing did not reveal any details about the terms of the apparent agreement. But in court documents last month, prosecutors hinted that a deal could be in the works. “The parties are currently exploring a possible resolution...

    The Department of Justice reneged on a commitment to provide access to documents they promised to congressional lawmakers by Thursday morning. Instead, DOJ issued a press release after midnight suggesting they will only meet with a group of select lawmakers to discuss the matter on the same day the North Korea summit opens in Singapore, according to numerous sources and a DOJ statement. Moreover, the Justice Department also issued new stipulations for briefing congressional members and limited the meeting with only the Gang of Eight, which is comprised of eight leaders within Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters.
