    LGBTQ advocates in Kansas City are planning protest Vice President Pence's visit to the city this week. The alternative rock station KRBZ tweeted Monday that it would throw “The Mike Pence Sausage Fest” across the street from where the vice president is expected to deliver remarks on Wednesday. “Mike Pence is coming to Kansas City this Wednesday,” the station tweeted. “Pence is no fan of the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re no fan of his. So we’re throwing The Mike Pence Sausage Fest across the street at Barney Allis Plaza starting at 11a. Stop by and get a free hot dog...

    TEXARKANA, Texas — Sen. Ted Cruz was in the middle of a campaign stop on Thursday afternoon, walking through a local factory here where workers build custom truck trailers and parts, when an aide suddenly approached with his iPhone. Vice President Mike Pence was on the line, and for about 15 minutes, Cruz, the outspoken tea party conservative and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, ducked into a partially shaded alcove seeking shelter from the oppressive Texas heat. And Pence talked to Cruz about an issue that may ultimately consume every bit of political oxygen in coming months: President Trump’s...

    Vice President Mike Pence demanded that Central American nations do more to stem illicit immigration, charging that few asylum seekers from the region had legitimate claims to safe haven in the United States. “This exodus must end,” Pence told a meeting of leaders here Thursday from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras — which make up the so-called Northern Triangle that produces much of the illegal migration traffic to the U.S.-Mexico border. {snip} The vice president called on the Central American countries to take a number of specific steps, including …. removing “public advertisements for human traffickers within your nations” —...

    An openly gay Pennsylvania lawmaker has drawn backlash after he “welcomed” Vice President Mike Pence to Philadelphia with a picture of himself flipping the bird. “Get bent, then get out!” state Rep. Brian Sims, of Philadelphia, wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday ahead of Mr. Pence’s visit to a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner. “Vice President Mike Pence, let me be the first person to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love, and to my District in the State House!” Mr. Sims wrote. “To be clear, we’re a City of soaring diversity.

    With national attention focused on the forced separation of families at America's southern border, this week isn't a very good week to be a Trump administration official (not that most are, of course). So it's not surprising that Veep Mike Pence was greeted by vocal protests when he swung through Philadelphia on Tuesday night to campaign on behalf of Republican governor candidate Scott Wagner. Some, such as state Rep. Brian Sims, D-Philadelphia, were slightly more emphatic in their opposition.

    NEW YORK - After the president uninvited the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is trying to force President Donald Trump to talk — with a subpoena. Kaepernick is accusing the president and Vice President Mike Pence of colluding with the league to keep him from getting a job, according to Yahoo Sports. The 30-year-old last suited up in the NFL in 2016. At the beginning of that season, he kicked off the on-field protests against systemic racism that involve players kneeling during the national anthem before games. Before the next season, he...

    There’s little reason to be surprised that Donald Trump canceled his anticipated summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. While some quarters will criticize Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton for raising the specter of Libya and the 2011 overthrow of strongman Muammar Gaddafi, the fact is that the administration from the beginning pursued a tactic of combining “maximum pressure” and accommodation. The White House never wavered in dangling both the stick and the carrot in front of Kim, seeing that approach as the surest way to avoid getting played by the North Koreans...

"You know, there was some talk of the Libyan model last week. And as the president made clear, this will only end like the Libyan model ended if Kim Jong Un doesn't make a deal," Pence told Martha MacCallum on Fox News. "It would be a great mistake...

    Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone pledged to have someone lined up to challenge Vice President Mike Pence should he run for president in 2020. During an interview Friday with Big League Politics, a right-wing news website, Stone suggested that President Trump may not ultimately run for re-election if his first term is adequately successful and denounced the possibility of a 2020 ticket with Pence and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "I guarantee you I will have a candidate challenge Mike Pence," said while speaking on the "Howley Reports" show. Stone derided Pence as a "establishment Republican quisling"...

    Telling Russia special counsel Robert Mueller to wrap up his investigation is not up to Vice President Mike Pence, says Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. "That's not Vice President Pence's decision to make," Graham told CNN on Thursday. "I'm sure Mr. Mueller will wrap it up when it gets time to wrap it up." Earlier in the day, Pence told NBC that a year into Mueller's inquiry, during which the administration has provided more than 1 million documents, it would be "in the interest of the country I think it’s time to wrap it up." “And I would very respectfully encourage...

    Donald Trump, with his feral cunning, knew. The oleaginous Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become AmericaÂ’s most repulsive public figure. And Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge. Because his is the authentic voice of todayÂ’s lickspittle Republican Party, he clarifies this yearÂ’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing. Last June, a Trump Cabinet meeting featured testimonials offered to Dear Leader by his forelock-tugging colleagues. His chief of staff, Reince Priebus, caught the spirit of the worship service...
