    Sean Hannity tonight told his audience he heard either former FBI Director James Comey or FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe paid for the phony Trump dossier that was then used by US intelligence officials to spy on Trump. Sara Carter reported earlier tonight the FBI gained approval to surveil members of Trump’s campaign by using the bogus Russia dossier. Sean Hannity said McCabe or Comey paid for the phony dossier! Sean Hannity: I’m hearing from sources that either Comey or McCabe paid. Do you hear the same. Sara Carter: I’m hearing both stories Sean.

    Hillary Clinton’s dirtiest political trick to date is the multi-million dollar Russia dossier her campaign paid for to not only smear a political opponent, but to illegally spy on the campaign as well. The 35 page salacious document compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele is central to what prompted Mueller’s Russia witch hunt.

    Police forced to shut down area surrounding art show. When two security dogs reacted to a suspicious crate before an Art Miami tent opening early Saturday morning, Miami police officers briefly shut down the area for a few hours to investigate the possible threat. But when they opened up the offending crate, officers found something else instead: a punky portrait of Hillary Clinton in a studded jacket and shaggy pink haircut, in a neon picture frame to match. Fair director Nick Korniloff said that the two dogs reacted to the crate during a pre-show check shortly after 8 a.m., prompting...

    The economy’s rate of economic growth was revised up Wednesday to the fastest pace in three years, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Gross domestic product grew at a 3.3 percent annualized rate in the July through September period, an increase from the previous estimate of three percent. The increase means economic growth was stronger in the third quarter than previously believed despite the damage done by hurricanes Harvey and Irma The revision also shows that the economy has been growing at a rate closer to what President Donald Trump said he would achieve than what many economic forecasters thought was...

    Pamela Geller and Geraldo Rivera went after each other on Hannity tonight and it was EPIC! Pamela blasted Geraldo for hurling insults at Pamela after she was targeted and almost killed at a rally in Texas in 2015. In May 2015 two Islamists linked to ISIS drove up to Pamela’s “Draw Muhammad” contest and rally in Garland, Texas. The Islamists were killed by security guards before they entered the facility to slaughter innocents.

    On the morning of December 8, 1941, tens of thousands of American and British civilians living in China woke up to learn that the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor had been bombed by Japanese forces. Their nations were suddenly at war with Imperial Japan. The Japanese had invaded China years earlier, and the troops stationed there wasted no time turning these Westerners—who were now part of the enemy—into prisoners of war. “They appeared the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked,” Mary Previte told the Trumpet. “We were now the prisoners of the great emperor of Japan, they said.”...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain insists​ ​​his vote against a GOP plan ​to repeal​ ObamaCare ​is not payback for ​Donald Trump ​demeaning​ the former POW’s heroism during the Vietnam War​​ when the president remarked, “I like ​people who weren’t captured.” “If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short. You’ve got to move on,” McCain, a Navy pilot who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison, told CBS’s “60 Minutes”​ in an interviewed that aired Sunday.​ “And on an issue of this importance...

    Ronald L. Ridgeway was “killed” in Vietnam on Feb. 25, 1968. The 18-year-old Marine Corps private first class fell with a bullet to the shoulder during a savage firefight with the enemy outside Khe Sanh. Dozens of Marines, from what came to be called “the ghost patrol,” perished there. At first, Ridgeway was listed as missing in action. Back home in Texas, his old school, Sam Houston High, made an announcement over the intercom. But his mother, Mildred, had a letter from his commanding officer saying there was little hope. And that August, she received a “deeply regret” telegram from...

    Memorial Day is a time for remembrance. Many think of the ones who have died in combat, but a forgotten group is the Missing In Action. On this solemn day Americans should think about those who never came home, with their families left in limbo. Thankfully, there is one group whose sole purpose is to account for the ones who fought for this country, but never returned home. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency’s mission is to find many of the missing from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC) told American Thinker of...

    WASHINGTON – The Centers for Disease Control is warning of the emergence of a far deadlier tick-related virus than Lyme Disease – one that kills 10 percent of those infected and permanently disables the other 50 percent. It’s called POW for short, or Powassan, and it, like Lyme, is carried by deer. Recent cases have been noted in the Northeast U.S. and the Great Lakes states. The virus can cause inflammation of the brain, leading to death in 10 percent of cases and permanent disability in 50 percent of cases. Signs and symptoms of infection can include fever, headache, vomiting,...

    Sgt. Charles Layton was 6,000 miles from home and 21-years-old when he became a prisoner of war. In the early 1950s, he spent four months in captivity in the bitter cold, suffering daily beatings. “The pain was so intense,” said Layton. “I couldn’t speak for several days. I wish I could rip it from my memory, out of my head. Even with shoes on, I can still feel the pain." The memories, now 65 years old, haunt him still. “I knew I had to do it for us to escape. I had no alternative but to kill the guards," he...

    A "Mark III" military escape kit, with a silk map peeking out. Imagine it’s 1942, and you’re a member of Britain’s Royal Air Force. In a skirmish above Germany, your plane was shot out of the sky, and since then you’ve been hunkered down in a Prisoner of War camp. Your officers have told you it’s your duty to escape as soon as you can, but you can’t quite figure out how—you’ve got no tools and no spare rations, and you don’t even know where you are.One day, though, you’re playing Monopoly with your fellow prisoners when you notice a strange seam...

    The United States on Tuesday said it has successfully located remains of the country's servicemen who went missing in Arunachal Pradesh during World War II. A Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) team carried out works on sites in the Himalayas where US aircrafts are believed to have crashed with still unaccounted for servicemen. The team visited several locations in Arunachal Pradesh to determine if the reported sites can be definitively correlated with known crash sites involving missing US servicemen. "The United States is committed to making sure all the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who served our country come home....
