  • Warren, Bullock spar over 'no first use' nuclear policy [at debate]

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) sparred Tuesday night over her proposed “no first use” policy on nuclear weapons during the Democratic debate. In defending the proposed policy, Warren argued for diplomatic and economic solutions to conflict, saying “we should not be asking our military to take on jobs that do not have a military solution.” But Bullock opposed that proposal, saying, “I don’t want to turn around and say, ‘Well, Detroit has to be gone before we would ever use that.’” Warren is the lead sponsor of the Senate version of a bill that would...
  • Trump drops executive action on U.S. Census, will seek citizenship survey by other means

    R ^ | 7/11/19 UPDATED AN HOUR AGO | Jeff Mason, David Shepardson
    A government official confirmed that Trump is expected to announce he will drop the legal battle to include the question on the census survey and instead direct the Commerce Department to obtain answers on citizenship through other means, but it was not clear how that would occur or how it would be funded. The U.S. Census Bureau is part of the Commerce Department. The U.S. Constitution specifically assigns the job of overseeing the census to Congress, limiting the authority of the president over it, which complicates adding the question to the decennial survey via presidential missive. Trump’s decision not to...

    Just hours after President Trump announced he will be imposing 5% tariffs on Mexican imports over illegal immigration, Mexico’s president Lopez Obrador sent Trump a letter begging for a meeting to work toward a solution. “Mexico’s President Lopez Obrador asks Trump to have U.S. officials meet with the Mexican foreign minister in Washington on Friday to seek a solution that benefits both nations,” Reuters reported.
  • Admission by Nadler threatens Democrats' effort to drag William Barr before federal judge

    Washington Times ^ | May 12, 2019 | By Jeff Mordock
    As Democrats push forward with a plan to haul Attorney General William Barr before a federal judge for contempt of Congress, a stunning admission by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler could torpedo that case, legal experts say. The House Judiciary Committee last week took the first step toward holding Mr. Barr in contempt for defying a Congressional subpoena demanding special counsel Robert Mueller’s “full unredacted” report along with all the supporting evidence. Republicans say he even rejected an amendment that sought to carve grand jury information out of the subpoena, issued in March. But Mr. Nadler now says he...

    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. ...

    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...

    Kurdish Peshmerga fighters say Iraq's central government has ordered them to surrender key military positions in the disputed city of Kirkuk within hours. They were given a deadline of 02:00 on Sunday (23:00 GMT on Saturday) to quit military facilities and oil fields. Brief clashes also erupted between Kurdish forces and (Iranian) Shia militia backing the Iraqi government.

    '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.
