    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday the U.S.-Israel relationship can withstand the “weakness” of President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who shook diplomatic norms this week in barring two members of Congress from visiting the country. Pelosi told The Associated Press that the “weakness of Netanyahu and the weakness of Donald Trump combined” into a policy that’s “a no.” “We have a deep relationship and long-standing relationship with Israel that can withstand Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu,” Pelosi said. “We cannot let their weaknesses stand in the way of our ongoing relationship.” She said the U.S. commitment to...

    Launching his bid for the Tory leadership this week, Brexit Britain has been wallowing in a hyped-up psychodrama of national humiliation. ..A random sample of headlines from across the spectrum tells the story: “Brexit and the prospect of national humiliation”;“Voice of the Mirror: Theresa May’s Brexit is a national humiliation”;“‘Humiliating to have to beg’ for EU exit, says Arlene Foster” And so, endlessly, on.There is something hysterical in this constant evocation of humiliation. It is a cry of outraged self-regard: how dare they treat us like this? Yes, of course, the Brexit debacle has reduced Britain’s prestige around the world..but...

    As sure as the Sun rises in the East, Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos will find a way to renew his all-too-frequent calls for anti-gun legislation. A recent opinion column mashes violence in Mexico with incidents in the United States in order to make the same old points. The column, titled “Run, Hide, or Fight”, rehashes some of the same old tropes that Ramos has been peddling for years. This brief sampling below pretty much sums up the entirety of the column: *In the United States there are said to be more guns than there are people. In some areas...

    Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist, has given her support for a general strike for the climate, saying the student movement she inspired needs more support from older generations to ensure politicians keep their promises under the Paris agreement. Speaking at a public event in London as Extinction Rebellion protests continued in the capital, the initiator of the school strike for climate movement was typically frank about the scale of the problem the world faces and the impact her campaign has made.... At several points, she stressed the need for the protests to spread. “This is not just young...

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka—Sri Lanka’s government has information indicating the plotters of Easter bombings that killed more than 300 people were reacting to the New Zealand shootings that left 50 Muslims dead in March, the country’s defense minister said. Minister Ruwan Wijewardene, who made the statement in Parliament, didn’t elaborate or provide any details about the nature of the government’s information. Mr. Wijewardene also said a local Sri Lankan radical group that the government believes was involved in the Easter attacks, National Thowheeth Jamath, was linked to another group that he didn’t name. He called for National Thowheeth Jamath to be...

    FULL TITLE: BuzzFeed News editor takes heat for suggesting Trump would be more outraged if Sri Lanka victims were white A BuzzFeed News world editor faced backlash Sunday for taking a swipe at President Trump while tweeting an article about the attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter. "Suspect we’d be hearing a lot more outrage from Trump and co. if the Christians killed in Sri Lanka were white," Miriam Elder tweeted with a link to BuzzFeed News. Elder’s tweet, as The Washington Examiner reported, received many more comments than likes or retweets. It had received nearly 3,000 replies, 70 retweets...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney says he's "sickened" by the level of dishonesty the special counsel found in President Donald Trump's administration. The one-time GOP presidential nominee tweeted that it's "good news" Trump was not charged with wrongdoing in the investigation. But Romney, who's now a senator from Utah, was critical of what he called the "pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection" at the highest levels of the administration, "including the president."

    John Brennan was nominated to be Director of the CIA by Barack Obama and served as Director from March 2013 to January 2017. Here is a list of former Directors of the CIA. Only a few have been actively political following their tenures, but none has been as rabidly vocal and anti-Trump as John Brennan. John Brennan has been prognosticating no end over the last two years and has made some pretty serious accusations. On more than one occasion Brennan called Trump "treasonous." Former CIA director John Brennan blasted President Donald Trump's press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday as 'nothing short...

    Why I converted to Islam – Roman Catholic priestPublished on The autobiography of a Roman Catholic priest, Idris Tawfiq, who became a Muslim about 15 years ago, has emerged online. Tawfiq was reported to have died after a period of illness on February 3, 2016 in the United Kingdom, UK but before his death, he had written his experience on how he converted to the ‘religion of peace.’ Although the reason for releasing this on the same day, one year after he died cannot be ascertained, ‘AboutIslam’ is reporting that until his death, he was head of religious education in...

    Full title: Pope: Christians murdered by Muslims are testament to God’s plan for peaceful coexistence of Christians and Muslims. “The lives of 19 religious men and women martyred during the Algerian civil war are a testament to God’s plan of love and peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims, Pope Francis said.” A more serious analyst would note that they were, after all, murdered, so they might not be that great a testimony to peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims. But this is the Pope who has said that “Muslim terrorism does not exist.”

    Scott Kelly, a retired American astronaut with multiple space flights under his belt, apologized Sunday after quoting Winston Churchill and calling the 20th century British prime minister "one of the greatest leaders of modern times." "Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill. My apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities, racist views which I do not support. My point was we need to come together as one nation. We are all Americans. That should transcend partisan politics," Kelly wrote on Twitter in the evening.

    The New York Post mocked Meghan McCain as “The Meg” on its Sunday cover after she used the opportunity of her father’s funeral to attack President Trump. “The Meg” is a reference to a plus-sized shark in the late-summer hit movie The Meg, starring Jason Staham. The New York Post cover is just one part of a brewing backlash against McCain and the overall funeral service for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), which turned into an unseemly partisan rally Saturday with speakers like former Presidents Barack Obama and even George W. Bush trashing President Trump, who Sen. McCain refused to invite...

    Michigan’s primary is August 7 and last weekend the Progressive People’s Heroine from the Republic of New York came to my state to promote her equally progressive choice for Michigan’s governor. Why anyone should care who a socialist bartender from the Bronx thinks should be governor of our state is beyond me, but here she is, in her F-Me boots, promoting fellow socialist, Abdul El-Sayed. Yeah, let’s elect more of that.If you’re keeping track, El-Sayed was likewise endorsed by Bernie Sanders last week so it looks like he’s pretty much got the Progressive Democrats United votes locked up. And he’s...

    She’s not even in Congress yet, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party’s rising star and unapologetic socialist, endorsed a slate of candidates in last night’s primaries. While all eyes were on Ohio’s 12th congressional district, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, and Washington also had primaries. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Cori Bush running in Missouri’s first congressional district and Abdul El-Sayed and Fayrouz Saad in Michigan. El-Sayed and Saad were running for governor and Congress respectively; Saad was running in the Mitten State’s 11th congressional district.  We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country. From @KanielaIng & @SaadforCongress...

    A public university is paying a radical 89-year-old linguist hundreds of thousands of dollars to teach his famously leftist brand of politics, according to records obtained by Judicial after a months-long battle with the taxpayer-funded institution. Judicial Watch launched an investigation after the University of Arizona (UA), located in Tucson with an enrollment of about 40,000, announced that it hired Noam Chomsky to teach a general education course for undergraduates titled “What is Politics?” In the announcement UA describes Chomsky as a “world-renowned linguist” and one of the “most cited scholars in modern history.” The reality is that Chomsky is...
