"I am so pleased that Timothy will be joining our team," Melania Trump said in a statement. "He was selected because of his impressive work history and management skills. My husband and I know he will be successful in this vital role within the White House." As chief usher, Harleth will oversee the more than...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) has been named an honorary coach for his alma mater Louisiana State University at the upcoming College World Series after he was injured in a shooting Wednesday at a practice for the congressional baseball game. LSU coach Paul Mainieri made the announcement Thursday, saying Scalise is in their prayers. "He really is in our thoughts and prayers," Mainieri said Thursday. "We're hoping that he's going to have a full recovery and a speedy recovery but my understanding is he's having to deal with some real issues here." (snip) The Louisiana Republican is an outspoken...

    In a pair of affluent coastal California counties, the canary in the mineshaft has gotten splayed, spatchcocked and plated over a bed of unintended consequences, garnished with sprigs of locally sourced economic distortion and non-GMO, “What the heck were they thinking?” The result of one early experiment in a citywide $15 minimum wage is an ominous sign for the state’s poorer inland counties as the statewide wage floor creeps toward the mark. Consider San Francisco, an early adopter of the $15 wage. It’s now experiencing a restaurant die-off, minting jobless hash-slingers, cashiers, busboys, scullery engineers and line cooks as they...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise went into surgery for the third time Thursday morning after he was wounded in a shooting at the Republican baseball team's practice in Alexandria, Va. Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital Center said the Louisiana Republican remained in critical condition, and they began a third operation, according to Politico. Scalise was transported to MedStar Washington Hospital Center after a gunman, identified as James Hodgkinson, opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers practicing for the annual congressional baseball game

    Members of a group linked to liberal operative and Hillary Clinton loyalist David Brock are involved in a new lawsuit filed by the Democratic attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Maryland against President Trump over his private businesses. The lawsuit filed by D.C. and Maryland mimics that of a lawsuit filed earlier this year by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a liberal legal advocacy group once led by Media Matters for America founder David Brock.
  • Safe Spaces are Detrimental to the Future of Society; and the “Progressive Pushers” Know This

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    The advent of Safe Space on college campuses and public high schools is dangerous and was designed to make the next generation incapable of dealing with the real world. It is a long term project to ensure that more powers are given to Globalist governments because the individual will be incapable of managing the simple issues of daily life. What began as a project to “dumb-down” the population through grade school level television has moved on a stage. It is now important to ensure that the average citizen is completely incapable of dealing with the modern world. Part of this...

    Beware the Anti-American. Everything in their mind and their world is reversed. Once you understand that, you understand them I’m trying to figure out why Leftist Democrats are so desperate to return to the days of no economic growth, police being assassinated in their patrol cars by Black Lives Matter, and a President who bows to foreign leaders and abandons our embassies to terrorist attacks? Why they want to again demand bank loan mortgages to people who can’t pay them back and then bail out those banks for causing the housing market to crash? Why they want to force out...

    In 2015 we presented a note for candidate Donald Trump to consider. Perhaps today, almost two years later, is a good day to remind President Trump of its content. “The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves.” ~ Machiavelli Dear Mr. Trump, There is something important you need to know – perhaps more important now than ever. Today is a good day for the message. We fully understand the geography of this battle. We have been well aware...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros gave an additional $250,000 to Virginia Democrat Tom Perriello in May, bringing his total contributions to the former one-term congressman’s primary to $500,000, according to a campaign finance report filed on Monday. Together with $50,000 that was given to Perriello from Soros’s son Gregory, money from the Soros family accounted for 16 percent of the money the campaign brought in between April 1 and June 1 of this year.

    HBO late-night host Bill Maher apologized for using a racial slur during an interview on his show, “Real Time,” which led to a firestorm of criticism, including from the cable network. In a statement sent to media outlets, HBO called Maher’s comments “inexcusable and tasteless” and said the cable network will remove that segment from future airings of the show. Others, including Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson and Jack Posobiec, a Trump supporter who writes for the right-wing site Rebel Media, have called for Maher to be fired. #FireBillMaher is circulating on Twitter.

    The intelligentsia impulse is all about power. It's about a small faction of academics, intellectuals, and arrogant eggheads who think they know better than everyone else One study I read labeled the prophets in the Old Testament one type of intellectual. I disagree, since they operated as revelators to a nation which had rejected the laws of God and rejected His precepts. The philosophers of Ancient Greece and Rome fall into this “intellectual” category more accurately, since they praised their reasoning, research, and logo ahead of revelation and physical effort The common denominator among them? They were spectacularly wrong on...

    In a hilarious, if embarrassing, turn of events, as students were marching in at the Arlington High School Graduation outside of Memphis, Tennessee, a savage brawl among parents erupted — and it was caught on camera. There are multiple videos of the violence, from different angles. Although the video that best shows the absurdity of it all is shown below, you can view a closer angle at USA Today. Please be aware — due to a high level of profanity on that recording, viewer discretion is advised. The video below starts out looking like a perfectly normal graduation ceremony —...

    There is an additional exposé on James Comey which presents an ironclad case against him for dereliction of duty, obstruction of justice and official misconduct as follows: DETAILING THE COMMISSION OF COMEY CRIMES State of the Nation May 18, 2017 Subject: Dropping the Hammer on Comey…Brilliant! There are very few crime/mystery novels that approach this true story for compelling drama, intrigue and brinkmanship (with the nation in the balance). Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey. Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence...

    "Politics offers yesterday's answers to today's questions." Which is why government circles itself ad infinitum This is titled with apologies to Marshall McLuhan’s memory for the bastardization of his famed pronouncement, “the media is the message”. Truly though, the apology should be rendered by the media itself rather than a poor political missionary attempting to characterize the dissolution of the once-respected profession of journalism. Perhaps it would be more fitting to say the ‘message is the narrative,’ but both turns of phrase are applicable. Media is the vehicle to disseminate tales as well as the embodiment of those tales contrived...

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Mark Levin made the case President Donald Trump was justified in his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey a day earlier. Levin hammered one of the biggest critics of that decision, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), but not before criticizing media pundits for what he deemed to be their legal and historical illiteracy.
