    WASHINGTON—Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) secretly traveled to northern Syria last weekend to speak with American military officials and Kurdish fighters at the forefront of the push to drive Islamic State out of their de facto capital of Raqqa, according to U.S. officials. The unusual visit, which officials said was organized with the help of the U.S. military, came as the Trump administration is debating plans for an accelerated military campaign against Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL. Mr. McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, first traveled to rebel-controlled Syria in 2013, when he met...

    President Obama on Friday appointed longtime White House aide Kristie Canegallo as deputy chief of staff for policy implementation, to oversee issues that include the continuing rollout of the Affordable Care Act and better integration of technology in classrooms. The move, which comes three days before senior White House health-care adviser Phil Schiliro will step down, aims to institutionalize some of the changes chief of staff Denis McDonough made in the wake of the health-care law’s botched debut last fall. [....] Unlike many of Obama’s top advisers, who came to their jobs through politics, Canegallo started as a civilian Pentagon...
  • Sarah Palin Endorses Julianne Ortman for U.S. Senate in MN Against 'Clown' Al Franken

    Framing the potential Senate contest as the "The Clown vs. The Mama Grizzly," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Minnesota State Senator Julianne Ortman Thursday in her bid to get the GOP nomination and unseat Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). The primary is August 14. Palin slammed the former Saturday Night Live comedian's record in the Senate as a "joke" and, riffing off of Franken's Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot book, called Franken just a "Big Fat Liberal" who voted with Obama 100% of the time: Al Franken’s career has been a joke; we all know this. The biggest...

    The other night, a friend and I did what just about every Democrat and progressive has been doing since Nov. 2: We debated what President Obama could -- must -- do to pull his presidency out of its downward spiral. The shock-and-awe of his campaign has given way to the awe-hell of his governing. The White House's failure to effectively champion its accomplishments, articulate a strategy (expiring Bush tax cuts) or aggressively exploit opportunities (failure to extend unemployment benefits) has everyone wondering if the administration can get its act together. Focusing on Obama's personnel, we agreed that the president needed...
  • What Soros Wanted, Obama Delivers

    In January 2004, George Soros proclaimed to the world, "I have made rejection of the Bush doctrine the central project of my life." To which he added, "America, under Bush, is a danger to the world. And I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is." Soros then waged a nearly one-wallet war against Bush, put more than $25 million of his own cash into Kerry's election bid and came out of the whole gambit with a tattered I-Voted-for-the-other-guy t-shirt. In 2006, Soros declared in a depressive-mood pity party at the Council on Foreign Relations: "In the future, I'd...

    Nancy Pelosi is playing to her natural constituency. Jimmy Carter, the distinguished peanut farmer, and Bashar al-Assad, the murderous dictator of the terrorist government in Damascus, are thrilled. Nearly everybody else sees a lady too big for her pantyhose. "I was glad she went," said Mr. Jimmy. (Can it possibly be true that this man was once president of the United States?) "When there is a crisis, the best way to help resolve the crisis is to deal with the people who are instrumental to the problem." The minister of the Syrian Cabinet was even more thrilled, perhaps because he...
