    Leave it to Fox News’s Chris Wallace to hit the pause button on a major line of political spin coming out of the Trump campaign these days. When Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, repeated to Wallace Trump’s claim that the candidate is “doing very well with women” and also “winning with Hispanics,” the “Fox News Sunday” host called for a reality check.

    We've visited with Brian Williams a few times here already. We've had to show him what an honest newsman looks like since he totally ignored Grubergate. What have they (NBC News) found more newsworthy since the first Gruber video came to light Nov. 7? Topics include cold weather, Ferguson unrest, Tom Brokaw getting the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a barber, Black Friday, the Ford F-150, Penicillin allergies, more cold weather, aspirin, Giancarlo Stanton, and how cold it is outside. For Williams, shielding Obama from criticism is part of the job. He has a long history of being an Obama kiss-ass....

    A girl aged 16 was rescued by Prince William after being swept out to sea trying to save her sister. Rescuers said her sister, aged 13, had been swept away on a riptide while body-boarding and the girl had swam out to help her. But she got into difficulties as she became exhausted and was close to drowning when she was winched to safety by an RAF rescue helicopter captained by Prince William. The RAF said it was one of its 'fastest and shortest' operations, taking 38 seconds to arrive at the scene at Silver Bay, Anglesey, north Wales.

    Prince William took to the skies over the Falkland Islands today on his first sortie as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot. William arrived on the archipelago this week amid escalating tensions between Britain and Argentina over the disputed region. The pilot prince has been branded a 'pirate prince' by protestors - but William would have been concentrating on closer-to-hand issues as he prepared for his first exercise. Today's images also show the 29-year-old prince consulting maps with a colleague in a squadron operations room. William, who in the RAF is called Flt Lt Wales, will provide search and...

    Off with their hats! It was bigger than the Super Bowl and as tacky as a legion of Elvis impersonators. Most of all, it was disturbingly white. Yesterday's little wedding of William and Kate, a worldwide showcase of dreadful hats, fad diets and an unusually sour, lemon-yellow-clad queen, was designed to prove to the common man that the royals, finally, were down with the people. But from the moment a triumphant Kate tiptoed with her dad onto the red carpet -- yes, she walked an actual red carpet to and from the altar -- I saw not a potential queen....

    Quick vanity question: I know that royals do not technically have last names but descendants of George VI not in the royal line go by Windsor, descendants of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, by the name Montbatten-Windsor. However William, Harry, Beatrice, and Eugenie have all elected to use their House names, Wales and York respectively. Now however, William is head of his own house, that of Cambridge. So how did William sign the wedding register? William Wales, Windsor, Montbatten-Windsor, or Cambridge? It would be interesting to see if he changes the name on his flight suit to Cambridge.

    We sat down at 9.30am and watched the whole thing until THE KISS four hours later. Didn’t intend to. At my age this history/politics junkie tends towards the cynical and, of course, being a man prefers to maintain a cool mask of disdain while the ladies wax lyrical over weddings and babies. Plus I’m always suspicious of crowds. But the sheer enthusiasm and goodwill of the people who came to watch disarmed my pessimism.

There have been suggestions that the state visit – the first for a US President since 2003 – was set up in return for...

She would NOT be 'Princess Catherine' (no matter how much you see this term in the papers) Prince William has a courtesy title, in other words, he has no title of his own, he is a Prince merely by virtue of being the grandson of the Monarch.(William's father Charles had his own title 'Prince of Wales' when he wed and thus his wife became Princess) Because of this the closest that Kate could get to the...

    LONDON: The security cover for Britain's Princes William and Harry has been stepped up over fears that IRA terrorists are plotting to assassinate the royals, a news report said on Sunday. Scotland Yard fears the Princes, who are officers in the British Army, are prize targets for Irish Republican Army (IRA). The number of close protection officers guarding the two royals on each shift has been increased, Britain's Sunday Express reported today. The threat level has been upgraded following the murders of two soldiers and a police officer in Northern Ireland. "The Princes are regarded as legitimate targets by these...

    Fri, 02/27/2009 He died a year ago today. William F. Buckley, Jr., the founder of the modern conservative movement and of its intellectual journal of opinion The National Review, was the catalyst who gave conservatives in this nation the courage to take back a government which had spiraled out of control since FDR and his New Deal. Bill succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. Ronald Reagan became President and gave us those sweetly remembered halcyon days. Compared to today under the new FDR those days seem like paradise. The government that conservatives fought so hard and so long to get...

    Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that the guy who brought you lyrics that equate the CIA with the KKK and seem to yearn for those always mystical golden days ("whatever happened to humanity") is no student of history and would thus make a video that sounds creepily reminiscent of a -- well, hell, I hate to say it -- a Hitler rally. It's one thing for a stadium full of drunk people to shout out the name of a rock band. I'll even give a pass to people who've worked hard in a campaign getting riled up during...

    Jefferson trial set to start Dec. 2Judge stands firm on Virginia venue Saturday, June 14, 2008 By Bruce Alpert ALEXANDRIA, VA. -- U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III set a Dec. 2 trial date Friday in the federal corruption case of Rep. William Jefferson, D-New Orleans, although the judge admitted that it could be delayed again. **SNIP** A December start means the trial would occur after the fall congressional elections. Jefferson hasn't said whether he's running for a 10th term. In an interview earlier this week, Jefferson said he never announces in advance of qualifying and that his lack of...

    Way cleared for Congressman Jefferson's appealby Bruce Alpert, The Times-Picayune Friday March 21, 2008, 7:54 AM WASHINGTON -- A judge's ruling Thursday should restart the stalled legal proceedings in Rep. William Jefferson's efforts to have a federal appeals court throw out 14 of 16 criminal charges against him. The ruling by U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III about grand jury documents is likely to free the Justice Department to ask the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., for expedited consideration of the New Orleans Democrat's appeal and allow that court to set dates for the filings of briefs...

    What happens when William and Harry hit the town? One man spent a month trawling the nightclub world of the Turbo-Sloanes to find out Please don’t call it a scene. Norman Mailer and Mikhail Baryshnikov ordering drinks while Jerry Hall and Debbie Harry hit the dance floor at Studio 54 – that’s a scene. Francis Bacon holding court over 100 sq ft of talent at the Colony Room – that’s a scene. Prince Harry lurching, glass-eyed, out of Boujis on a Wednesday morning? Prince William at Mahiki, jiving like an uncle at a wedding? Not so much. A scene requires...
