    How can “Senator” Richard Blumenthal, who went around for twenty years as a Connecticut politician bragging that he was a great Marine war hero in Vietnam (then got caught and sobbingly admitted he was neither a Marine nor ever in Vietnam), pass judgement on anyone? Loser! 8:56 PM - 16 Aug 2018

    Showtime and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen rebuffed former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's claim that she was "duped" into a prank interview for the British actor's new series. The network said in a statement on Monday that Baron Cohen conducted the interview for his new show "Who is America?" dressed as one of his new characters, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D. But contrary to Palin's claim that the character was intended to be a disabled vet, Showtime said that the show's premiere on Sunday proved that wasn't the case. "There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about...

    John Kerry — who ran against George W. Bush in 2004 — told Palestinian officials he is strongly considering taking on President Trump in the next election. He also discussed the administration’s efforts to discuss a peace deal between Israel and Palestine following the White House’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Kerry had initially considered running in 2016, but ultimately decided against it. He previously lost the 2004 election after obtaining only 251 electoral college votes against Bush’s 286 votes.

    A Utah man faces criminal charges after allegedly threatening to kill President Donald Trump, according to an indictment filed Wednesday. The grand jury in central Utah returned the indictment showing multiple charges against Travis Luke Dominguez of threatening the President, the police and later people in a Utah movie theater complex, a bank and another business. “I’m a Navy SEAL,” the indictment quoted Dominguez, 33, as saying. “I woke up and decided going to kill the president Donald Trump today. Please forgive me and then I will die by suicide by cop.” The indictment went on to quote Dominguez as...

    Brooklyn Army vet Papotia Reginald Wright’s resume was impressive by any standard. He boasted of a Purple Heart, Bronze Star — and a slew of other medals as an elite Green Beret that got him into swanky galas and even field access to the Giants. But Wright is nothing but an accomplished fraud, it was revealed Thursday. He never served with Special Forces, never served in any combat role — and never rose above the rank of “specialist,” according to military documents obtained through FOIA by Guardians of the Green Beret. Wright even lied about how long he was in...

    ...Umpire43, also known as Doug Lewis or DJ Lewis, has repeatedly invented stories in the past—particularly about his own background. Lewis said he was a 22-year veteran of the Navy, a pollster at Ipsos/Reuters, an expert on rigging voting machines, a source who was feet away from Reince Preibus, a man who speaks six languages, a beleaguered soul who needed time off after the 9/11 attacks when he saw Muslims “dancing on rooftops,” the owner of a polling company who claimed Trump had a sustained lead in California, and an actual baseball umpire with 50 years experience. Oh, and he...

    President Donald Trump on Monday unleashed a hostile tweet storm on Sen. Richard Blumenthal, making a number of claims against the Connecticut Democrat, including that he had lied about serving in Vietnam. Trump's Twitter fusillade was apparently set off by Blumenthal's appearance on CNN earlier Monday in which he spoke about the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. "I think is very important to protect and safeguard the independence and integrity of that investigation," Blumenthal said. Later Monday, Trump suggested Blumenthal take a long vacation in Vietnam "so he can at say he was there."

    President Trump is on vacation, but that hasn’t stopped him from watching early morning cable TV and tweeting angrily in response. On Monday, President Trump went after Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who was on CNN earlier in the morning to discuss the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Blumenthal also expressed concern that the Trump administration has “weaponized” investigations into leaks of classified information. On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the agency will be aggressively investigating leaks to the media. Blumenthal’s remarks touched off a trio of tweets from Trump, who began...

    Especially since it proves how worthless the Paris agreement really is. John Kerry was very good at his job as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, at least if you understand that job to be what Obama wanted it to be: Negotiating awful international deals that are not in the interests of the United States. And it makes sense that Kerry would be good at this. He detests America, and has demonstrated this ever since he slandered his fellow Vietnam veterans at the Winter Soldier hearings in 1971. John Kerry is an anti-American jerk and a terrible human being.

    A 68-year-old Wisconsin man who falsely claimed to be a Navy SEAL wounded four times in Vietnam has been sentenced to four years in prison for theft and faking paperwork. U.S. prosecutors say Kenneth E. Jozwiak produced fake discharge paperwork in 2014 to get U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs pension benefits intended for low-income wartime veterans. In 2014, Jozwiak submitted a discharge certificate that claimed he served as a Navy SEAL from 1965 to 1968 and was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. All -- including the four Purple Hearts for combat injuries — were totally false, according to...

There was no Saturday Night Massacre II. There were no violations of the law on the President’s part. There were no dictatorial machinations. There...

It saddens me." . . . "There is no cause for celebration in what happened in the Senate just hours ago," he said. "No one should sleep well tonight. No one should underestimate the magnitude of what happened here. Damage was done to our democracy."

    U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday condemned a Syrian chemical weapons attack that killed dozens and blamed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but did not say how he would respond despite calls from France for stronger U.S. leadership. Trump said the attack in Syria's Idlib province was "reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world," although he also sought to blame his predecessor, Barack Obama. "These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the last administration's weakness and irresolution," Trump said in a statement. "President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a 'red line'...
