    Krzanich is the third executive to leave President Donald Trump's council in the span of a day — Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier both resigned earlier on Monday following the recent episode of white supremacist violence in Virginia. "I resigned to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing," Krzanich said in Monday's blog post. "I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders...
  • New Tunnel Discovered Under Ancient Pyramid

    07/09/2017 10:23:38 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 18 replies ^ | Heather Brady
    The tunnel was found under the Pyramid of the Moon, the second-largest structure in the ancient city (the largest is the Pyramid of the Sun), according to the International Business Times. The archaeologists who discovered it believe that it mirrors the Teotihuacans’ great monuments and may represent the underworld in the belief system of the pre-Colombian, 2,000-year-old civilization that built it (a civilization thought to pre-date the Aztecs, who later occupied the site). The tunnel is long, extending from the central square known as the Plaza de la Luna to the nearby pyramid. It is about 33 feet (10 meters)...

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence touted the progress of transition efforts Thursday during a surprise appearance at the first Washington, D.C., press conference for President-elect Trump's team, highlighting the fact that the transition had been completed "on schedule and under budget." "When we took over, I was impressed, frankly, with the work Gov. [Chris] Christie and the transition team had done prior to the election," Pence said. Trump put Pence in charge of the transition team shortly after his victory in November after allowing Christie to guide the process during the campaign months. Pence said the transition had conducted more than...

    Hillary Clinton laughed as the person introducing her omitted “under God” from the pledge of allegiance. Wednesday, during a campaign rally at Camden County College in New Jersey, the woman said, “Only Hillary can bring us together as one nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” After the woman said “one nation,” she can be heard beginning to say under, but then caught herself. The crowd roared in approval.

He also suffered a fractured eye socket.

  • Have we become a turncoat nation under Obama’s foreign policy?

    hot air ^ | Ed Morrissey
    Has Barack Obama’s foreign policy led us to become a “turncoat nation”? First, as Bill Whittle carefully explains in his latest Firewall video, one has to understand what “turncoat” actually means. It doesn’t indicate treason, but switching sides — with a healthy inference of surrender, to boot. Certainly we see that in the sudden desire to cast Israel as the intransigent in the Middle East, as Whittle states, but it’s hardly the only example, and certainly not the first: It seems like Obama is trying to establish the US as some sort of context-free arbiter of world issues, which might...

    The budget deal reached Friday would affect two initiatives contained in last year's health-care law that were bitterly opposed by businesses, killing one outright and slashing funding for the other. The agreement would eliminate a provision of the health-care law enabling low-income workers to opt out of employer-offered health insurance and shop for more affordable coverage on insurance exchanges to be created in 2014, according to congressional aides and business groups. Under the provision, employers would have had to help pay for the insurance purchased on the exchange. Ending the program would save the government $4 billion over 10 years,...

    Feeling pain at the pump? Gas prices have doubled since Mr. Obama took office. According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas has arrived on average throughout California, and a number of other states are headed in that direction. Consumer price index (CPI) figures from February show an unadjusted 12 month

    WASHINGTON - The American unit of French catering giant Sodexo SA on Thursday filed a civil racketeering lawsuit accusing the Service Employees International Union of engaging in illegal tactics in its efforts to unionize workers. The company levied numerous charges accusing the union of threats concerning employees and company property, engaging in illegal tactics to steer business away from Sodexo and attempting to publicly tarnish its reputation. The lawsuit is the latest twist in a fight over a bid by SEIU to represent some of the 80,000 of Sodexo's hourly employees who are not union members

    IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen Avi Benayahu on Monday said he traveled to the United Kingdom on a false name over fears of being arrested for alleged war crimes, in an interview with Defense News. "In my last visit to London, I had to assume a false name because well-funded anti-Israel activists are exploiting universal jurisdiction powers to wage lawfare against us," Benayahu explained. "It's absurd, and I understand the government is trying to legislate changes to prevent this." Benayahu said that, "The British and other European governments are just as concerned as we are about terror, and leaders are realizing that...

INN: Today, you addressed the escalating hatred of Israel in the realm of Western academia. Can you tell us your observations of this phenomenon since your book, "The New Anti-Semitism" came about some years ago? PC: As I first wrote in 2001-2002, the...

    The U.S. vetoed a controversial Palestinian Authority resolution at the United Nations Security Council as pressure on the administration mounted in the House. A letter urging Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to stand up against the resolution condemning Israel quickly racked up signatures in the House on Friday. Reps. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) circulated the letter, which had been signed by at least 110 members, making the rounds beginning Thursday afternoon and again later on Friday. The members responded to reports that a presidential statement condemning Israeli settlements could be

    Ben-Ami: Appearance of unfavorable stories is part of concerted effort to undermine J Street and its message at a critical time in negotiations. Critics of J Street rebuked the dovish advocacy group on Friday after it emerged it had considered facilitating meetings between Judge Richard Goldstone and congressmen. The Washington Times reported on Thursday that J Street approached several US lawmakers in November 2009 asking whether they would be interested in meeting the author of the UN report on the war in Gaza, to ask him questions on his findings.

    We have entered a momentous period in the history of the American press. The invention of new communications technologies—especially the Internet—is transforming the human capacity to speak, perhaps as monumentally as the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. This is facilitating the largest and fastest expansion of global economic growth in human history. Free speech and a free press are essential to a dynamic economy. At the same time, however, the financial viability of the U.S. press has been shaken to its core. The proliferation of communications outlets has fractured the base of advertising and readers.

  • Americans Under 30 Most Likely to Take Uncompromising Stand for Right to Life, Says Gallup Poll

    ( - The pro-abortion left appears to be losing the battle for the heart and soul of the rising generation of Americans, according to new data released by the Gallup poll. Americans in the 18 to 29 age bracket are now more likely than their elders to believe abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, according to the data released last week, and generally oppose abortion in greater numbers than Baby Boomers. Since 1975, Gallup has been asking this question: “Do you think abortions should be legal under any circumstances, legal only under certain circumstances, or illegal in all circumstances?”...
