  • Clinton snubs Thatcher in 'Gutsy Women' book, says she didn’t make 'positive difference'

    Margaret Thatcher was the daughter of a greengrocer who rose to become Britain’s first female prime minister, won three national elections, oversaw an economic revolution at home, and faced down the U.S.S.R. -- earning her the moniker “The Iron Lady” from the Soviets. She didn’t, however, meet the mark for Hillary Clinton’s book on gutsy women. The former secretary of state, who failed in her 2016 bid to become America's first female president, is out with a new book, “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly not be accepting the Queen's invitation to stay at Balmoral. The royal couple are understood to think that Archie is still too young to make the trip up to Scotland. Her Majesty always asks her family to join her when she heads to her Scottish estate for her two-month summer break. A source told The Sun: 'Harry and Meghan had no plans to go to Balmoral this summer as they felt Archie was too young.

    In the battle unfolding in Congress between the Democrats and Attorney General William Barr, I’m on the side of the United States Constitution. That means defending not only Mr. Barr but also President Trump. The two men stand on America’s legal bedrock. Which is why Mr. Barr was able to make short work of his Democratic questioners at Wednesday’s hearing in the Senate. His calm, straightforward testimony made it clear that he isn’t the caricature the Democrats have been drawing of him. And events aren’t the conspiracy the Democrats are still trying to validate, even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s...

    Some U.S. House Democrats on Thursday said they might seek to invoke a dormant congressional power to impose fines on Attorney General William Barr after he refused to provide them with an unredacted copy of the Mueller report. Discussion of using their “inherent contempt” power came after Barr also refused to appear at a House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearing meant to delve into his handling of the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “Congress’ power will not be abdicated. We will enforce it,” Democrat Ted Lieu told reporters in remarks that reflected a growing view among some Democrats that...

    There may be empty seats at this weekend's White House Correspondents' dinner following a late-in-the-game boycott ordered Tuesday by the White House. The boycott comes weeks after news organizations invited White House staff and other administration officials to join their tables at the ritzy annual gathering at the Washington Hilton, where tickets cost $300 per seat. "The President and members of his administration will not attend the White House Correspondents Dinner this year," a White House official told the Washington Examiner in an email. "Instead, Saturday evening President Trump will travel to Green Bay, Wisconsin where he will hold a...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 17, 2019
    The White House Correspondents' dinner, enthusiastically called “nerd prom” for years by Washington journalists looking for champagne and selfies, is sobering up, with next week's gala drawing few celebrities, no president, and now no press secretary. As if to rub in the lost luster of the event, instead of the usual comedian, a historian will serve as the "entertainment." President Trump, snubbing the dinner a third time to host a rally, diverted top aides from the gala, while a faction within the White House Correspondents’ Association nixed the comedy routine, resulting in the least glitzy gathering in decades. C-SPAN hasn't...

    You might think Joe Biden got caught coming out of an Asian massage parlor in Florida. Not that there is anything wrong with it, as Seinfeld would say. It’s only a problem, as with Patriots owner Bob Kraft, if you allegedly get caught inside on a police camera ordering the works, which is illegal. In most cases, it is a misdemeanor. Joe Biden is not Bob Kraft. For all the accumulating pictures and reports of the former vice president interacting with women, Biden was prone to give massages rather than get them.

    “Royal family snub President Trump during UK visit: Prince Charles and Prince William were unwilling to meet Donald Trump on his visit to Britain, leaving the Queen to greet the US president alone.” (London Times, July 18, 2018.)Well, what could be more fitting than British royals snubbing the upstart leader of an upstart former British colony—and one who was elected by “deplorables” to boot? On the other hand, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, not only rank as the first British Royals to grace Bolshevik Cuba with a visit—but this week (aping President Obama three years ago) posed for a photo in...

    1 Nov 20181,555 BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox say they haven’t decided whether they will visit the White House if invited by President Donald Trump. Manager Alex Cora said Thursday he wants to use the platform he has as a World Series champion in the right way. A native Puerto Rican, Cora has been outspoken about the need for help on the island since it was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The traditional White House visit has become increasingly partisan, with some players declining to make the trip because of their political views.

    Few first ladies have been more prepared for their close-ups than Melania Trump. Yet the former model has not graced the cover of Vogue, Glamour or Cosmopolitan during her husband’s first 20 months in office. Neither has she yukked it up with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel or other late-night TV hosts. That’s a huge missed opportunity for the Trump White House, says Lauren A. Wright, lecturer in politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. Others insist Mrs. Trump’s low pop culture profile smacks of media bias that extends to other women in the Republican administration. “[Mrs. Trump] has this toolkit...

    Remember Ted Kennedy in 1987 claiming that if the Senate confirmed Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, “women would be forced into back-alley abortions [and] blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters?” Not vitriolic. How about the 1991 “high-tech lynching” by Senate Dems of Clarence Thomas? Again, not vitriolic. Or the infamous NAACP dragging-death ad of 2000 in which George W. Bush was accused of killing the victim all over again? Nope, not vitriolic. No, the political vitriol didn’t begin until 2008. And it was Sarah Palin’s fault. That is, if you believe CNN, and, apparently, John McCain. This morning,...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral. Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony. McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family. The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice...

    New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, currently one of the leading lights of the Democrats’ left-wing, is on a tour of the West Coast -- but is notably avoiding meeting up with the region’s Hollywood elites. Ocasio-Cortez, who represents the party’s democratic socialist wing, has visited homeless areas on Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood, and has met with liberal activists. But as she has held low-dollar fundraisers, she has not engaged in glitzy events with high-profile Democratic donors and Hollywood celebrities. The move has already raised eyebrows, with The Hollywood Reporter asking: “Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Too Far Left for Hollywood?”...

    A top Tennessee Democratic Party's communications official made disparaging comments about President Donald Trump and lashed out against a suggestion to reach out to his voters, describing them as "idiots." Mark Brown, a top communications official for the Tennessee Democratic Party currently working as the leading spokesperson to help Democrat Phil Bredesen win the Senate race against Republican Marsha Blackburn, has made a number over-the-top comments on social media, including calling the president "f---stik" and "Putin's b----," the Washington Free Beacon revealed. "Exactly, f--- 'reaching out' to Trump voters. The idiots aren't listening," Brown wrote in one of the tweets...

    The Prince of Wales, Prince William, and the younger royals all deliberately snubbed President Donald J. Trump on his visit to the UK, the Sunday Times reports. I blame the Meghan effect. Of course we can’t hold the arrival into the Royal household of a pretty actress who used to be in Suits wholly responsible for this outbreak of crass, thick, petulant behaviour: as we know, the Prince of Wales is more than capable of that without much prompting; and in Will’s case, the acorn doesn’t look as if it has fallen too far from the tree. Still, I’m blaming...

    THE QUEEN was left to take on her royal duty alone when she met Donald Trump and wife Melania, with Prince Charles and Prince William refusing to join in the elaborate welcome. Senior members of the Royal Family, including the first and second in line to the throne, had informal discussions about the trip, and let it be known they did not want to take part in arrangements for the US President’s four-day UK visit. Downing Street and Buckingham Palace both said as Trump’s tour of the UK was not an official state visit, there was a singular plan to...
