    Just a week after Marvel announced at New York Comic Con that Star Wars author Chuck Wendig would be penning a Darth Vader miniseries, Wendig says that he’s been removed from the series as well as from an unannounced Star Wars book after he was temporarily suspended from Twitter earlier this week. In a series of tweets, Wendig noted that he was fired from the remainder of the series “because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring... It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.” A Marvel spokesperson confirmed that Wendig had...

    A California teacher who taught White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller when he was a third-grader has been suspended after she published an op-ed claiming he was a “loner” who ate glue in her class. The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District placed Nikki Fiske on “home assignment” pending an internal investigation following her piece in The Hollywood Reporter magazine describing the 8-year-old Miller as a “strange dude.” “Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him?” Ms. Fiske wrote Wednesday. “That was Stephen Miller at 8....

    Nikki Fiske, the third-grade teacher who claimed Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller ate glue as a child has been suspended. On Tuesday, the far-left Hollywood Reporter published another one of those childish, mean-spirited personal attacks against a Republican that has become so common throughout the establishment media. This one was titled “Stephen Miller’s Third-Grade Teacher: He Was a ‘Loner’ and Ate Glue.” Other than a nasty attempt to embarrass Miller, the story has no relevance to anything, much less an entertainment publication. The Hollywood Reporter, though, was merely doing a follow-up on a story about Miller as a third-grader...

    A staffer working on Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum's (D) campaign was dismissed after a series of offensive social media posts surfaced over the weekend. Screenshots of since-deleted tweets from Manny Orozco-Ballestas, a youth director for the campaign, were published by conservative blogger Jacob Engels. The tweets, which date as far back as 2012, included several in which Orozco-Ballestas degraded women and one in which he responded to a tweet from President Trump by saying "you need to be executed." The Tampa Bay Times reported on Sunday that Orozco-Ballestas was fired because of the language used in his social media...

    A youth outreach staffer for Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has been terminated after calling for President Trump's death on Twitter, and wearing a shirt calling pro-Trump states "Dumbf--kistan." The staffer, 24-year-old Manny Orozco-Ballestas, made a series of sexually graphic and politically charged comments on social media in 2012 and 2013, according to fringe blogger Jacob Engels, who flagged the posts. In one 2013 post, Orozco-Ballestas wrote to Trump: "you need to be executed." In another, he reportedly wrote, "If you're weighing 300 pounds+ maybe it's a good idea you stop posting all that fattening food pics on [Instagram]!"

    Project Veritas just released its latest undercover video, "Unmasking the Deep State."  This first video focuses on a State Department employee who is both a poster child for the Deep State and a perfect example of why the federal bureaucracy needs serious reform.  Providentially, there is new legislation being considered in Congress that would do just that: the Merit Act (H.R. 559). The Merit Act would greatly streamline the process for firing employees who are poor performers, insubordinate, or otherwise engaged in misconduct.  Since the election of President Trump, the bureaucracy, including numerous holdovers from the Obama administration, has been engaged in...

    A retired Navy admiral who oversaw the raid that killed Usama bin Laden has resigned from a Defense Department advisory board, after criticizing President Trump's decision to revoke a former CIA director's security clearance.

That was four days after he wrote in the Washington Post that Trump's actions revoking former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance "embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all,...

Trump also criticized her last year, saying she was the reason the network ratings "tanked." She announced her decision on her Twitter, mentioning that...
