    ....On April 29, 2016, when the DNC became aware its servers had been penetrated, an emergency meeting was held between the Chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, DNCs Chief Executive, Amy Dacey, the DNCs Technology Director, Andrew Brown, and Michael Sussman, a lawyer for Perkins Coie, a Washington, DC law firm that represented the DNC. Sussman took control of the meeting, setting out the DNCs agenda when it came to dealing with the cyber attack on its server. The three most important questions, Sussman declared, were what data was accessed, how was it done, and how can it be stopped?...

    WASHINGTON Senator Susan Collins of Maine said on Monday that she would oppose the latest plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republican leaders clearly short of the votes they need for passage. Ms. Collins, a Republican, announced her opposition in a written statement, delivering a significant and possibly fatal blow to the partys seven-year quest to dismantle the health law.

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Friday said he "cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham Cassidy proposal. McCain is one of four Republican senators who are undecided on the GOP healthcare overhaul, and his opposition dealt the bill's chances a significant blow. Read his full statement below: "As I have repeatedly stressed, health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate. Committees of jurisdiction should mark up legislation with input from all committee members, and send their bill to the floor for debate and amendment. That is the only way we might achieve...

    With most Republicans backing the Graham/Cassidy healthcare bill, there is at least one Republican senator who's still vocal in his opposition. His name? Senator Rand Paul. Unlike his colleagues, who don't take their promises to American voters seriously, Senator Paul continues to call for the complete and total repeal of ObamaCare, the horrendous health care bill pushed through Congress by former President Obama and his Democratic allies. I was thinking this all sounds familiar...amnesty?#GrahamCassidyِ: Amnesty for Obamacare. — Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) September 19, 2017 "No one wants to repeal ObamaCare more than I do," the senator from Kentucky writes...

    U.S. Democrats took to the Senate floor on Monday to throw a spotlight on behind-the-scenes efforts by the Republican majority to repeal former President Barack Obama's healthcare law, known as Obamacare. In a series of floor motions, inquiries and lengthy speeches, Democrats criticized the closed-door meetings that Republicans have been holding to craft a replacement for Obamacare, formally known as the Affordable Care Act. They called for open committee hearings and more time to consider the bill before a Senate vote, which Republicans say could come in the next two weeks, although a draft bill has yet to emerge publicly.

    (NEW YORK) Republican Sen. Rand Paul said the House GOP health care bill is unlikely to pass in Congress because there are enough conservatives that dont want Obamacare lite. The Kentucky senator told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on This Week Sunday that the Republican-led Congress should repeal Obamacare in its entirety. He says the current bill, which is set for a vote Thursday in the House, doesnt go far enough. Theyre going to repeal part of it and leave in place all of the stuff that causes your insurance rates to go through the roof, Paul...

    Fresh from crushing Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders in the CNN debate on Obamacare Tuesday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz moved his target to another hateful progressive Marxist, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been viciously smearing Senator Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s nominee to be the nation’s next attorney general, as a racist. Appearing on FOX News Wednesday morning, Cruz blasted Warren’s repeated use of the race card as a crutch used by Democrats who are incapable of winning arguments while reminding the Democrat Party of their racist heritage, the party of the slavery, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and the KKK....

    WASHINGTON The Obama administration declared its support Thursday for requiring women to register for the military draft, a symbolic but significant shift that reflects the U.S. military's evolution from a male-dominated force to one seeking to incorporate women at all levels. President Barack Obama has been considering whether to adopt the position since last December, when Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered the military to open all jobs to women, including the most arduous combat posts. Ned Price, a spokesman for the White House's National Security Council, said Obama believes women have "proven their mettle," including in Afghanistan and Iraq....

    Saturday, 19 November 2016 Text size A A A Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis ISIS-affiliated extremist group in Egypt has released images purporting to show the execution of a 100-year-old man. The group, who rebranded as ISIS-Sinai when they pledged allegiance to the extremist group holding swathes of Iraq and Syria, killed Sheikh Sulaiman Abu Haraz after kidnapping him earlier. Abu Haraz, considered one of the symbolic Sufi clerics and elders of the Sinai Peninsula, was taken by the group from in front of his house in Arish city under gun point. ISIS-Sinai accused the elderly sheikh of practicing witchcraft.

    Mark Levin came out firing in response to the disgusting street riots in San Jose last night outside a Donald Trump rally. The protesters were carrying Mexican flags, burning American flags, and assaulting Trump supporters as well as police officers. Levin said, at this point, its not only an attack on the right, or on Trump, but "an attack on America." Levin spent the first 10 minutes of his radio program absolutely eviscerating the rioters: Listen here:

    When it comes to nominating presidential candidates, it turns out the worlds foremost democracy is not so purely democratic. For decades, both major parties have used a somewhat convoluted process for picking their nominees, one that involves ordinary voters in only an indirect way. As Americans flock this year to outsider candidates, the kind most hindered by these rules, they are suddenly waking up to this reality. And their confusion and anger are adding another volatile element to an election being waged over questions of fairness and equality. In Nashville a week ago, supporters of Donald J. Trump accused Republican...

    Billionaire prophet of doom George Soros said the European Union is on the “verge of collapse” as it faces five or six crises at once. “The Greek crisis taught the European authorities the art of muddling through one crisis after another. This practice is popularly known as kicking the can down the road, although it would be more accurate to describe it as kicking a ball uphill so that it keeps rolling back down,” Soros said in an interview with The New York Review of Books.

If a country doesn't have children, migrants come to occupy that place,” the Pope said in a recent interview...

    Earlier this week, President Barack Obama banned the sale of certain military-style equipment to police departments. Brian Kilmeade reported tonight on "The Kelly File" that Obama also thinks that police officers should have "softer looking" uniforms. Kilmeade explained that Obama thinks that police officers are "making things worse" when they show up to inner city communities wearing military-style equipment and riot gear. "They're concerned about the helmet. They're concerned about the shield. It's sending the wrong message," Kilmeade stated. "I used to think from the civilian point of view that that would be a reason not to riot, because the...
