    Attorneys for Ford and aides to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley are said to have reached a tentative agreement for the professor to testify Thursday during a “brief” phone call on Saturday and plan to speak again Sunday to flesh out additional details of her testimony. Members of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) staff were also a part of Saturday’s negotiations. “Negotiations could still falter over those details, which include who will question the woman, Christine Blasey Ford. But in tentatively agreeing to a Thursday hearing, Republicans made a significant concession that suggested they were working to ensure that the session...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said late Friday night that he is giving Christine Blasey Ford more time to decide whether to testify on her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Grassley wrote on Twitter that he had "just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed [with] the statement she made last week to testify to the [Senate]."

    The 72-year-old had been ordered to hand himself in to start a 12-year prison term for corruption. His lawyers are said to be negotiating his surrender with police. Some reports suggest he may surrender on Saturday, others that he will hold out through the weekend. Thousands of cheering supporters gathered outside the building in Sao Bernardo do Campo where Lula is staying. "I think that if the federal police come here now to arrest Lula, they won't have room [to get in]," Lula supporter Joao Xavier told Reuters. ... Helicopters have been circling the metalworkers' union building where Lula is...

    French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday claimed that the tone of comments adopted by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia towards Iran was virtually “a path to war”, Reuters reports. “The official line pursued by the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia, who are our allies in many ways, is almost one that would lead us to war,” Macron was quoted as having told reporters. The line being taken was “a deliberate strategy for some,” he said, while adding that France wanted to maintain some balance. “Otherwise, we end up surreptitiously rebuilding an ‘axis of evil’,” he said, referring...

    In addition to protesting the National Anthem, the National Football League is now funding left-wing advocacy groups, including Dream Corps, a George Soros organization, led by a former Obama advisor, Van Jones. Jones states that he is a communist and two of the goals of Dream Corps is to advocate for the “Clean Power Plan” and open borders. The NFL recently agreed to pay $73 million over seven years to various groups that the NFL Players Coalition supports. The coalition was created in 2016 as a way to “respond to perceived institutional bias among law enforcement agencies.” Its members are...

    'They're giving up,' said Lieutenant General Paul Funk, who commands the coalition task force fighting Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. 'Their leaders are abandoning them.' In uncommon scenes, large groups of militants were turning themselves over to Kurdish Peshmerga forces, in the city southwest of Kirkuk. snip 'The speed at which the enemy gave up surprised me,' Funk said in a phone interview from Baghdad, after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the liberation of Hawija. Funk said about 1,000 militants surrendered in the past three or four days of fighting in Hawija. The coalition had estimated up to...

    As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump praised autocrats and exhibited strongman tendencies. But as president of the United States, Trump is proving to be one of the weakest, most disinterested executives in memory. He seems happy — even eager — to be both operationally and ideologically marginalized inside his own administration. This is, I think, the best way to understand the ouster of chief strategist Steve Bannon. White House staff, congressional Republicans, military leaders, and executive branch officials are increasingly confident simply ignoring President Trump. After Trump tweeted that he wanted the military to ban transgender service members from serving,...

    Republicans, in particular the Trump administration, are approaching a historic decision that will shape America for generations to come. The endless hostility of the Left, exemplified by violent fascists on college campuses, thugs in the streets, determined disrupters at town hall meetings, and the dishonest elite media are all part of their efforts to defeat the reforms and changes that President Trump was elected to implement.

I mean if you overlay the white flag of surrender ( the new national flag of France ) it just looks liek the picture is having a foggy day...

    A senior military officer revealed that the head of the Al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf terror group, who carries a $1 million cash reward of his head offered by the US, planned to surrender because he was “already old.” Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez, the head of the military’s Western Mindanao Command (Westmincon), said the plan of Radulah Sahiron, the Abu Sayyaf leader, to surrender was relayed to him by Moro elders from the island province of Sulu. Aside from his advancing age, Galvez said Sahiron also expressed concern over the unabated “search and destroy” operation launched by the military against him...

    Trump cared about what matters to the old Reagan Democrats. Reagan won them for the same reason Trump did, and the GOP could have turned the rust belt red long ago had they been less interested in internationalism and oil profits “As a dog returns to his vomit, so fools repeat their folly”—Proverbs 26:11 Ever quick to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the GOP has not even waited for the weekend to begin systematically dismantling the stunning victory their party achieved despite their best efforts. Trump has barely had time to shower and shave before his party began...
