    Corey Lewandowski has sparked outrage after he mocked a story regarding a 10-year-old disabled illegal immigrant girl who was separated from her mom at the border. 'There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink,' Megyn Kelly tweeted. 'This man should not be afforded a national platform to spew his hate.' Meghan McCain called the clip 'so horrible, even by Lewandowski standards'. Columnist John Podhoretz wrote: 'Womp womp will be the sound Corey Lewandowski's soul makes as it descends to Hell.'

    It’s obvious what’s going on. Team Trump has nominated a leading LGBT activist whose views are antithetical to those of most social conservatives and is trying to smuggle her across the finish line before the Christmas recess — and, above all, before members of Trump’s base catch on.

    TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian police said they were investigating violent attacks in Edmonton on Saturday night as “acts of terrorism” after a man hit a police officer with a car and stabbed him and then later struck four pedestrians while driving a second vehicle. The officer and the other victims were taken to the hospital for treatment of multiple injuries, police in the western Canadian city said. Canada’s CTV News said the officer was expected to recover, though further details on the condition of the victims was not immediately available. The Edmonton Police Service said in a statement it believed...

    The Homeland Security Department announced on Thursday that it would keep in place the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, allowing undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to remain in the country. The decision breaks a key campaign promise by Trump to "immediately terminate" the DACA program and stands at odds with the president's vows to crackdown on illegal immigration. In an announcement posted on the DHS website Thursday night, the department said that the memo that created DACA "will remain in effect." A fact sheet posted along with the announcement reaffirmed that the program's original provisions...
  • White House aides reportedly urged Trudeau to persuade Trump on NAFTA

    The personal appeal that President Trump said he received from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last month — leading him to renegotiate NAFTA — was only made after Trump’s son-in-law and top aide Jared Kushner called Trudeau’s office in Ottawa and begged him to talk some sense into the commander-in-chief, a report says. The unconventional move was revealed Monday by the National Post, who spoke to several government sources familiar with the desperate pleas from Washington. Toronto’s Metro newspaper later revealed that Kushner was the government official who made the phone call.

    A high school student who stabbed a fellow pupil in the neck with a pencil can't be expelled under her school district's weapons policy, a Commonwealth Court panel has ruled. In fact, Judge Patricia A. McCullough wrote in the state court's opinion, every Pennsylvania classroom would be empty if her court agreed with the Pittsburgh Public School District that a sharpened pencil is a prohibited weapon. The case revolves around what happened between the 10th grader and another student at the Barack Obama International Academy on May 9, 2016.

    Three major cities accounted for more than half of the rise in the national murder rate between 2014 and 2015, a new report shows. Though overall crime rates were stagnant in America’s 30 largest cities the murder rate rose 13.3 percent, according to a report from the Brennan Center for Justice. The violent crime rate also rose by 3.1% in those major cities, lead by increases in Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Charlotte.

    Just before Thanksgiving, the president called a meeting with minority student leaders to discuss race relations on campus. It’s a meeting that ended abruptly, with students reading a letter asking for more time, and walking out. “As students of color, WE DO NOT point fingers nor cast blame for the lack of awareness and understanding in regards to the black experience here at Salisbury University, keeping in mind that racism and cultural segregation existed long before any of us stepped foot on campus,” the letter read. “However, we refuse to deny that the current environment on campus takes a huge...

    Trump people kill me. They've been whining for weeks about how the Republican Party primary system works. They say it's rigged because their hero is pulling in the most votes and the most delegates but still might not win the nomination. They say it's all very simple: Trump's getting the most votes and therefore it's only fair that the person with the most votes from the people should win the nomination. As I tweeted earlier this week, if that's the way Trump's followers think, then they should all be supporters of Al Gore. In the 2000 election Gore got 540,000...

    Volunteers at the Colorado Republican Assembly are coming forward with evidence to indicate that their state’s delegate selection process was riddled with errors that disadvantaged some Donald Trump supporters who were running to become national delegates. The errors could have violated state bylaws significantly enough that some of the results could be contested, according to the volunteers. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took all 34 of Colorado’s delegates last week in a process that closed down traditional caucus voting to the public. A handful of volunteers spoke to Breitbart News about the process. “I’m the former Chairman of the Pueblo County...

    The next time you hear Mark Levin on the radio, or watch Glenn Beck on TV, or read Erick Erickson, RedState.com on the Internet, you might just ask yourself who is paying for the message? And why is it so stridently anti-Trump? Don’t fool yourself. They’re doing it for the money. As the spearhead of the “Dump Trump” movement, the same GOP establishment big-dollar donors and PACS that are pushing House Speaker Paul Ryan as a dark-horse presidential candidate, despite the big-government omnibus-budget deals Ryan reached last year with President Obama, are funding Mark Levin, Erick Erickson, and Glenn Beck,...

    A DePaul student was unexpectedly caught in the middle of a short-lived political scandal. Her picture was used to help spread a rumor about a presidential candidate that wasn't true. Samantha Rivera said her phone was ringing so much it woke her up Wednesday morning. There were also texts and emails asking her if she had an affair with a presidential candidate. The journalism major at DePaul says nothing she learned in public relations classes prepared her for this. Rivera's profile picture is at the center of an alleged sex scandal involving Republican Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. Rivera said someone...

    GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump met with leaders from the Republican National Committee this week and reportedly hashed out his concerns over delegate distribution, particularly in Louisiana. Trump has spent the past week raising issue over Louisiana’s delegates because, while he won the state’s GOP primary March 5, he could get fewer GOP delegates from than second-place finisher U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz through political maneuvering. The New York Times reports that Trump and RNC leaders met Thursday to clear the air, with RNC chairman Reince Priebus explaining that each campaign had to fight for delegates at each state’s convention.

    Since Obuma was elected to POTUS, I have been coming to Free Republic to get news, opinions and a few laughs. Most of the serious posts were bemoaning the out of control government and what could be done about it. "Oh Whoa is Me!". Then along comes a constitutional conservative. For the first time since Ronald Reagan, we have a constitutional candidate running for the GOP nomination. This man was elected by conservatives to go to Washington and stand up to the elites that no longer listen to the American people. He didn't go to Washington and "fall in" with...

    Former Sen. Tom Coburn says a Trump-circulated quote of him attacking Cruz is an "absolute fabrication," according to the Washington Examiner. Coburn criticized Trump for "loose play with the truth" not just "loose play with words." The Washington Examiner report goes on: As part of his never-ending criticism of Cruz, Trump's Twitter feed retweeted and pushed a quote ostensibly from Coburn criticizing Cruz as "one of the most dishonest people" in Washington. Coburn never said this. "It's an absolute fabrication. I've never said that, period," Coburn told the Examiner. "It's unfortunate he would use my name to say something dishonest....

    It’s not every day that anti-war groups find themselves cheering on leading Republican presidential candidates. But, then again, this hasn’t been a presidential campaign that’s stuck to the script. The morning after he called the Iraq War a huge misstep and argued that President George W. Bush lied to get the country into it, Donald Trump has earned praise from, of all places, Code Pink, the group best known for protesting the Iraq War and subsequent military interventions. “I watched the debate last night and LOVED IT,” Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin said in an email.
