    Unless you read the Spanish-language tweets, or read all the way to the bottom of U.S. news accounts about the Summit of the Americas, you'd never know what a kickass job Mike Pence did for the U.S. this week in Lima, Peru. He knocked it out of the park with his lead on Venezuela's moral odiousness and failed democracy and in so doing, brought the rest of the long-reluctant Latin states along with him, stating: “We want one message to be clear: We are with the people of Venezuela.” He openly met with Venezuela's opposition leaders who have been shut...

    When Gov. Charlie Baker approached reporters Monday, his body language was louder than his words. He knew he’d be taking questions about his intention to snub Vice President Mike Pence at yesterday’s fundraiser in Boston, and he did his best to ride out the scrum. When asked if he’d be meeting with Pence, Baker meekly proffered, “No. I think I’m actually going to be in the South Coast, down in New Bedford, when he’s here.”

    Vice President Mike Pence referred to Minnesota as America's "Star of the North" during a speech at a tax policy event Wednesday in Minneapolis. Pence spoke for close to 30 minutes to hundreds of supporters at the Minneapolis Convention Center. A crowd lined up as early as 7:30 a.m. to get in. Supporters said the event felt like a campaign stop. Pence touted items he said President Donald Trump and the administration have made progress on. And he pointed out how he believes the recent tax cut package is impacting people in the state. "When you add it all together,...

    John Oliver took a week off from breaking down President Donald Trump's latest outrages by focusing his fire on Vice President Mike Pence and his ultra-conservative views. The Last Week Tonight host began by describing Pence as an "ashen weasel," which he called the "opposite of whatever a silver fox is,” and then ran through his public statements on issues such as abortion rights, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, gays in the military and even women in the military — all of which fell towards the more extreme, conservative end of the spectrum. Oliver reminded the audience that Pence is the only...
  • Trump Moves To Discredit Comey, McCabe; Claims Bias In Mueller Probe

    President Trump on Sunday used his Twitter platform to try and discredit James Comey and Andrew McCabe, whose FBI careers were cut short amid acrimony over the Russian-meddling probe and how the bureau handled probes into the Clinton family. Both men reportedly kept memos detailing their interactions with Mr. Trump, which could factor into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, or fuel potential obstruction of justice charges against the president. Mr. Trump downplayed their relevance on Twitter. “Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was...

    They call themselves Main Street Republicans, moderates consigned to the back alleys of politics by their own party. But despite a severe bruising in the fall election, this minority within a minority finds itself with new avenues to explore, including working more closely with Democrats. The Republican Main Street Partnership, a leading voice of GOP moderates in Congress, lost seven of its 48 House members to Democratic challengers in the November election. Two other senior members, Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., and Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., are retiring. The group also saw Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., one of its eight Senate members...

    Adam Rippon is back in the news, this time from rumors that he is producing a reality show with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. The news is likely to ruffle some feathers, as Rippon has become a polarizing figure — perhaps unfairly. Rippon, 28, is a 2018 Winter Olympics athlete and medalist. He received significant attention for being one of the first openly gay athletes to represent Team USA at a Winter Olympics and the first openly gay male athlete to win a medal in a Winter Olympics. But throughout the Olympics, it seemed as though Rippon made headlines just...

    TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar has said he is concerned Irish whiskey could be targeted as part of the escalating trade war between the US and the EU. Speaking on the first day of his week-long visit to the US, Mr Varadkar said when he hears the EU threaten to put import tariffs on US bourbon, it concerns him that Irish whiskey could also be hit with tariffs. “When I hear bourbon whiskey I think the next response could be tariffs against Irish whiskey,” he said. Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, Mr Varadkar warned that a cross-Atlantic...

    Joy Behar has apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for comparing his Christian faith to a "mental illness" after the network and its sponsors received tens of thousands of complaints. The Washington Post reported late Thursday that a phone call took place between Behar and Pence during which she apologized for her remarks on the ABC daytime talk show "The View" last month. The two reportedly spoke about how they were both raised Roman Catholic and Pence told her he was confirmed with the name "Christopher." "Yes, she did speak to Vice President Pence, they had a great, very nice...

    ABC News’ “The View” star Joy Behar has reportedly apologized for recent comments that mocked Vice President Pence’s Christian faith. Disney CEO Bob Iger said during the Q&A portion of a shareholder meeting on Thursday that Behar apologized directly to Pence on the phone. A source close to Pence confirmed to Fox News that Behar did apologize. The shareholder who asked the question was Justin Danhof, who is the general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research. Danhof told Iger that some of Disney’s recent decisions are “strange when trust in media is at an all-time low” and...

    More than 30,000 callers blasted ABC for allowing The View’s Joy Behar to spew “anti-Christian bigotry,” but the parent company has not taken action on any of their complaints. An estimated 30,588 angry viewers called the television network as of Wednesday morning, outraged after ABC broadcast an episode of The View this month in which co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin mocked Vice President Mike Pence for his religious beliefs. Media Research Center president Brent Bozell urged the television network to apologize for allowing religious bigotry to be tolerated on network television. The MRC posted contact information for 14 advertisers...
  • Federal judge rules Indiana can't block resettlement of Syrian refugees: report

    The Hill ^ | March 1, 2018 | AVERY ANAPOL
    A federal judge ruled that the state of Indiana cannot block Syrian refugees from resettling in the state under an order from then Gov. Mike Pence (R). In November 2015, Pence was part of a group of 16 governors who announced plans to block Syrian refugees from settling in their states in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris. All but one of the governors were Republicans. The Indiana policy prevented state agencies from making payments to a nonprofit that helped resettle Syrian refugees. U.S. District Judge Tonya Walton Pratt on Tuesday ruled that Indiana could no longer withhold authorized...

    The NRA Political Victory Fund (or NRA-PVF) is the National Rifle Association’s political action committee. Every year, the NRA-PVF sends a questionnaire to all Congressional candidates and then uses their answers, along with a candidates voting records and public statements on gun control and/or gun violence, to rank and potentially endorse political candidates — and this ranking runs on a scale from "A" to "F." But why does the NRA rank candidates at all? Well, the hope is that having the endorsement of the NRA will help voters more easily identify candidates whose believes align with their own, meaning someone...

    FULL TITLE: ABC Refuses to Apologize for Joy Behar Saying Mike Pence Has a “Mental Illness” Because He’s a Christian It looks like ABC isn’t going to apologize for “The View” co-host Joy Behar’s on-air mocking of Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. Many Christian viewers were offended by Behar’s remarks, and the TV network early on received 25,363 phone calls after the liberal comedian and commentator equated Pence’s faith with “mental illness,” Fox News reported. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” Behar said during the Feb. 13 episode of “The...

    ABC got at least one thing right about “The View” — its name. As far as the hosts are concerned, there is only one view: theirs. Sure, they’ll invite a token “conservative” on to add fireworks, but even that doesn’t get in the way of the hosts’ daily routine of smug Middle America-bashing. If the idea is to offend viewers, it’s working.Earlier this week, host Joy Behar did her share of the insulting when she responded to an episode of CBS’s “Celebrity Big Brother,” which happens to feature fired Trump staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman. On Monday night’s episode, Omarosa played...

    Vice President Mike Pence hit back at “The View” one day after host Joy Behar said that it’s essentially “mental illness” to believe that “Jesus talks to you” and co-host Sunny Hostin added that she’s not so sure she wants her “vice president speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.” "It’s just wrong, and it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith,” he said. “My Christianity is the most important thing in my life.” “I just think it demonstrates just how out of touch some...

    Donald Trump Jr. slammed US Olympic medalist Adam Rippon for the athlete’s criticism of Vice President Mike Pence’s position on gay rights. The president’s eldest son was responding to a report that claimed Rippon — an openly gay figure skater — did not want his Olympic experience to be “about Mike Pence.” “Really?” Trump Jr. retorted. “Then Perhaps you shouldn’t have spent the past few weeks talking about him. I haven’t heard him mention you once???” Rippon, 28, helped the US win a bronze medal in figure skating on Sunday. He has been openly critical of Pence leading the US...
