    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the Emmy-winning star of HBO’s comedy series Veep, just announced on Instagram that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. (you can read below her note, which also gives support to universal health care) Sources say she got the news the day after she won her sixth consecutive lead actress Emmy for the acclaimed HBO comedy and third consecutive best comedy series trophy for the show, which she also executive produces. Her illness is not related to the decision to make the upcoming seventh season of Veep its last, which was made weeks earlier. Veep‘s writing team will...

    American Thinker ^ | July 24, 2016 | Doris O'Brien
    Most pundits consider Tim Kaine a safe, if boring, vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton. For those who truly understand the frontrunner, Kaine is an apt pick. Like Mike Pence, he is not exceptionally attention-grabbing. Neither of them has to be. The two top dogs in the race already have all the deep-throated growl they need. Kaine has been operating in the political arena for over 22 years. He has an all too familiar "insider" résumé that tracks his career moves through various levels of state, party, and federal government. He is being touted by Democrats as someone who...

    With the news that the vice presidential slot may be filled and not by Republican Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor explained what his reaction will be if Donald Trump rolls out Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. 'I mean, obviously, I'm a competitive person,' Christie told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, a Republican analyst for the network. 'So I'm not going to say it won't bother me, if I'm not selected. Of course it bothers you a little bit. 'Cause if you're a competitive person, like I am, and you're used to winning, like I am – again, you don't like coming in...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Vice President Joe Biden stated that during President Obama’s meeting with law enforcement officials, Obama responded to their criticisms of some of his past statements “by pointing out, which I don’t think that they heard loudly and clearly, that, he in fact has, repeatedly, been supportive of the police organizations.”

    Donald Trump is formally vetting a retired general as a potential running mate, but the 33-year Army veteran's views on social issues are sure to draw an outcry from Republicans already wary about Trump's conservative credentials. Retired Lt. Gen Michael T. Flynn, who most recently served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, is being vetted as a last-minute addition to Trump's pool of possible vice presidential picks, NBC News confirms.

    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Rumors continue to swirl around Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Speculation continues on whether Donald Trump will pick Pence as a running mate. One of Trump’s former top aides is weighing in on a possible Pence selection, as is a fellow Midwestern governor. Pence only has ten days to make the decision to continue in the race for governor, or join Donald Trump as the vice presidential candidate. The governor spent the Fourth of July walking parades in Greene and Hamilton counties. This is after spending with weekend in New Jersey meeting with Trump. He said the two...

    It goes without saying that Senator Jeff Sessions is popular with a huge number of Americans. It is also true that Joni Ernst, a war veteran, is a rising star in Republican ranks. Either would make wonderful Vice Presidents for different reasons. However, the trade-off is unacceptable. In the case of Ernst, she is sitting as senator in Iowa, at best a purple state. There is absolutely no guarantee that her seat would be won by a Republican. Why is that so crucial? The Republican majority in the Senate is only 4 senators. And this year the Republicans have 24...

    Word on the street is that former Georgia congressman and House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be joining presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump at an Ohio rally tomorrow, making an appearance that could very well serve as an audition to be the billionaire’s running mate. Several reporters tweeted the news on Tuesday afternoon that Gingrich will be a special guest at Trump’s Cincinnati rally on Wednesday evening. We’ve known for a while that Gingrich is a top contender for Trump’s VP, but the two have not appeared together since that news broke. Tim Alberta over at the conservative National Review reports...

    The Republican National Convention opens in Cleveland — we are all witnesses — in exactly 16 days. That means that sometime over the next two weeks or so, we'll find out whom Trump has picked to be his vice-presidential running mate. Trump and his team have said all sorts of things about the timing of the announcement, including sometime soon and in the midst of the convention. Either way, it's coming. And coming soon. Trying to figure out a) whom Trump will pick or b) whom he is consulting in deciding whom to pick is, well, tough. But we do...

    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine took advantage of the state’s lax gift laws to receive an $18,000 Caribbean vacation, $5,500 in clothes and a trip to watch George Mason University play in the NCAA basketball Final Four during his years as lieutenant governor and governor, according to disclosures he filed. Now a leading contender to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Kaine reported more than $160,000 in gifts from 2001 to 2009, mostly for travel to and from political events and conferences, according to disclosures compiled by the Virginia Public Access Project. The givers included political supporters, a drug company that soon...

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, at a Fox News-hosted town hall in Indianapolis, on Wednesday blasted rival Ted Cruz’s decision to announce a running mate even though he’s losing the nomination race – calling it a “waste of time.” The billionaire businessman responded to Cruz’s campaign curveball, while also elaborating on a foreign policy speech he delivered earlier in the day, at the forum hosted by Greta Van Susteren. “I think it’s really a waste of time, honestly,” Trump said of Cruz’s decision to name former presidential candidate and ex-HP CEO Carly Fiorina as his VP pick. Of the race,...

    Carly Fiorina introduced Ted Cruz last night and said America should unite behind Ted Cruz. Her words: "Now is the time to unify behind a constitutional conservative....give it up for the next president...Ted and Heidi Cruz..." Ted responds with some intriguing lines: "Isn't Carly extraordinary. Such a tremendous leader. SHE TERRIFIES HILLARY CLINTON. Hillary tosses and turns in her ail cell, just thinking about her..." One has to ask, why would Hillary care about Carly Fiorina if Carly isn't on the ticket? Did Cruz give insight into his thinking?
