    House Speaker Paul Ryan is rejecting President Donald Trump’s suggestion that the Justice Department shouldn’t prosecute two GOP congressmen because it will hurt the party’s election prospects in November. Ryan tells reporters Wednesday, “Justice is blind. Justice should be blind.” The Wisconsin Republican says political party should have no impact on how the department works. […] Ryan adds that “the process is working its way as it should.” …

  • Why did Robin Ventura challenge Nolan Ryan to one of the most memorable brawls in history?

    Over the course of his 27-year career, Nolan Ryan won 324 games and struck out an all-time best 5,714 batters. It was presumably those feats of longevity and performance that made him a first-ballot Hall of Famer and placed him on a short list of the greatest pitchers of all time. Ryan is also remembered, however, for being involved in one of the most memorable brawls in baseball history -- and being someone you absolutely do not want to mess with. On Aug. 4, 1993 -- the final season of Ryan's career -- the righty toed the rubber for a...

    Securing funding for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall once again seems to be getting punted further down the road by congressional leadership. During a radio interview with WHAS on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will likely not make it into the next funding legislation, which must be passed by the end of September in order to avoid another government shutdown. When directly asked if the funding of the border wall would have to wait until after midterm elections, the Republican senator replied “probably,” noting that it is “something [Democrats and Republicans]...

    Comedian Seth Rogen bragged on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” about how he refused to take a photo earlier this month with a couple of teenage fans—because they were the sons of House Speaker Paul Ryan. Mr. Rogen, star of the movies “Knocked Up” and “Neighbors,” said he was approached at a Utah summit by two “very young, white teenage men—think how white they were if I noticed how white they were, because I’m white. I’m Canadian.” “They asked to take a picture with me … and then they said, ‘Our dad wants to meet you,’ and I turned...

    President Donald Trump had his life threatened by a former Kentucky police officer now facing federal charges, according to an extensive criminal complaint.

    Paul Ryan & Mitch McConnell must be immediately removed as Republican caucus leaders in the House and Senate. Both gentlemen are neither serving the Republican voter base, the American people or, the American nation, wisely. They are the tools of special interests They are actually more dangerous to the future of the American Republic, more so, then the ranting, nutcase Democrats and their hateful and insane media. Unlike many folks in our country, who believe the Democrats are gaining over POTUS, Trump, re: the immigration issues, I believe the Democrats are only destroying themselves internally as they go over the...

    On the eve of two major immigration votes, weeks of hard-fought negotiations took a turn with a heated blowup on the House floor between two lead negotiators. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, a conservative Republican from North Carolina, erupted at House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin over their agreement involving two major immigration bills, saying several times, "I'm done," while pointing in an animated fashion at the top House Republican and raising his voice as their colleagues watched. The explosion drew widespread attention from inside the chamber and out -- and surfaced once again the long-simmering tension between House...

    As they did last week along with the other networks, ABC led its Monday morning Good Morning America by hyping complaints from Democrats and liberals about the Trump Administration border policy. Correspondent Marcus Moore’s report even touted a celebrity’s curse-filled rant at the GOP without acknowledging the profanity. GMA started off its obsessive negative coverage with a report by White House correspondent Cecilia Vega, noting disapproval from first ladies Bush and Trump. “This is a policy that’s just eating away in terms of controversy at this White House,” Vega hyped, before adding that both Melania Trump and former First Lady...

Steve King (Iowa) says his fellow House Republicans "are considering" removing Speaker Paul Ryan, who has announced he is retiring after this Congress.“It’s kind of odd that he has as much power as he has,” King said in an interview with Breitbart News Tonight released Friday. “But I do predict, and it is happening, that that power is diminishing. I also have got information that there are — I’ll say ‘members’ — I say that plurally, with knowledge, that are considering introducing a motion to vacate the chair,” King continued. “If they do that, that will throw this place...
