    Protesters started to gather around Trump hotel this evening, blaring loud dance music and holding LGBT flags. Jack Posobiec was live on the scene asking the protesters what exactly they were protesting. Many said ‘gay rights and climate change’. Posobiec spoke to one protester who said gays are being excluded under the Trump administration and that Mike Pence ‘signed something’ and is putting gay people in jail. Posobiec: “What rights do gay people not have?” Protester: “So under Mike Pence you could go to jail for 18 months…” Posobiec: “Mike Pence has sent gay people to jail?” Protester: “Yes.” Posobiec:...
  • Why Did Vice President Pence Shorten His Hawaii Trip to Return to Washington?

    Hours ago, Vice President Pence made headlines by shortening his trip to Hawaii so that he could fly back to Washington D.C. Pence’s original plans to visit the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor have also been put on hold. Speculations about the swift change of the Vice President’s plans have been attributed to the Friday deadline that Congress must meet in order to pass a new spending package. The impending doom of a government shutdown awaits them if they are not successful. Additionally, the White House is scheduled to release a new tax reform plan this week. Given the following,...

    President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have steered a course during the administration’s first 100 days that anti-abortion activists have been dreaming about for decades. “I think if you looked ten years ago, and you asked the question, ‘Will Planned Parenthood be defunded in the next decade?’ everyone would have said, ‘No,’” Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser tells Breitbart News. “But the presidency of Donald Trump and the vice presidency of Mike Pence have changed all that.” The pro-life base of the Republican Party saw the beginnings of change from the start of Trump’s...

    North Korea said it was ready to sink a US aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military might, while US President Donald Trump prepared to call on China and Japan to assist in mounting pressure on the rogue nation. The United States ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail into waters off the Korean peninsula in response to growing concern over the North's nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the US and its Asian allies. The US government has not specified where the carrier strike group is as it approaches the area. The aircraft carrier...

    It feels as if a week doesn’t go by without North Korea’s diminutive dictator, Kim Jong-un, threatening to nuke somebody… usually the United States. In fact, it happens so often that it’s barely worth reporting on it any longer. But following the recent productive meetings between Australian leaders and Vice President Pence, the chubby autocrat has decided to expand the exclusive club of North Korean nuclear targets to include the Land Down Under. (NBC News) North Korea has launched into a war of words against Australia over the country’s alliance with the U.S., warning the country is within striking range...

    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - Vice President Mike Pence praised Indonesia's democracy and moderate form of Islam after meeting Thursday with the president of the world's most populous Muslim nation. The comments, though routine, had significance for Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, who a day earlier suffered a serious political setback when a political ally was defeated by Islamic conservatives in the election for Jakarta governor. The divisive campaign undermined the image of Indonesia abroad as a generally tolerant Muslim nation. ---snip--- Indonesia is on Trump's trade hit list of nations that he considers the U.S. is losing out to in...

    TOKYO: Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday (Apr 19) hailed Japanese companies for contributing to US economic prosperity, moving to ease fears over the protectionist agenda of President Donald Trump. Trump has criticised Japanese auto giant Toyota for planning to open a factory in Mexico, part of general broadsides against both foreign and domestic companies as he emphasises job creation in the United States. Last week his administration kept Japan on a Treasury Department watch list covering foreign exchange policies of US trading partners, exerting tacit pressure on Tokyo to buy more American-made goods and services. Such actions, as well...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | April 18, 2017 | Ethan Epstein
    The notices are in, and they're brutal. Donald Trump's nascent North Korea policy—announcing the end of "strategic patience" (Barack Obama's code for sitting around and doing nothing about the North's pursuit of nuclear weapons), leaning on China to rein in Pyongyang, strengthening sanctions, and issuing ambiguous threats about possible military strikes—is being panned by American foreign policy experts and journalists. The New York Times bemoans Trump's "recklessness." Ishaan Tharoor, a Washington Post blogger with the modest remit of covering the entire world, warns of the "dangers" of Trump's policies. Even Ian Buruma, an expert on Dutch politics most famous for...

    'The sword stands ready': Pence warns North Korea Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the U.S. military, promising it would make an "overwhelming and effective" response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons. Pence, who was aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, said that President Trump's administration would continue to "work diligently" with allies like Japan, China and other global powers to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. But he told the sailors, "as all of you know, readiness is the key." "The United States of America will always seek...

    Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise trip the Korean Demilitarized Zone on Monday, reportedly breaking his security plan in order to get a closer look at North Korean troops amid increased tensions in the region. Wearing a leather bomber jacket, Pence ventured outside and appeared to stare daggers at Kim Jong-Un’s soldiers. That's one cold stare. The vice president wasn’t supposed to go outside, but he told his security detail it was something he wanted to see, CNN reported. The Korean DMZ is the strip of land that separates North Korea from South Korea and includes small blue buildings,...

    Vice President Mike Pence said Monday that more Chinese involvement is needed to deal with North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Speaking from the Demilitarized Zone on CNN’s “New Day,” the vice president said the new U.S. policy will “redouble efforts” to put economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea, and get more involvement from the Chinese. “I know the president was heartened by his discussions with President Xi [Jinping],” he said, “We’ve seen China beginning to take some actions to bring pressure on North Korea, but there needs to be more.”

    President Donald Trump has increasingly infused references to God into his prepared remarks — calling on God to bless all the world after launching strikes in Syria, asking God to bless the newest Supreme Court justice, invoking the Lord to argue in favor of a war on opioids. He's also taken other steps to further cultivate a Christian right that helped elect him, granting new levels of access to Christian media and pushing socially conservative positions that don't appear to come naturally to him. One of the first interviews Trump sat for as president was with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s...

    Vice President Mike Pence’s scheduled commencement speech at Notre Dame has prompted a protest campaign by seniors who feel “unsafe.” ... “For me personally, [Mr. Pence] represents the larger Trump administration,” Ms. Mondane told school’s newspaper, The Observer, on Monday. “His administration represents something, and for many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”
