    Democrats can defeat the Trump base. But only if they ditch Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — and rally female voters What the angry white male writing this column wants to know is who will hit back for the Democrats? My polling cohort, older white men, took a public-relations beating during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings — and I say it’s about time. Never in modern political history have so many been given so much by our culture and yet have been so casual about the health of the Republic.

    President Trump's name appears on dozens of buildings worldwide, but if the leader of Poland has his way, properties like Trump Tower and Trump International Hotel may soon be joined by a conspicuously named military installation: Fort Trump. Speaking with Trump and reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Poland's president, Andrzej Duda, told Trump that he'd like the U.S. to create a permanent military base with that name in Poland -- and that Poland would pay more than $2 billion for the project. Duda emphasized that his country was "willing to make a very major contribution to the United...

    The Democratic base is growing increasingly frustrated with former President Barack Obama’s actions after leaving office, including a seemingly endless tour of millionaire and billionaire luxury retreats, according to Democrats and activists contacted by Fox News. Ex-presidents, understandably and un-controversially, go on vacations immediately after leaving office. But the level of luxury the Obamas enjoy on their vacations is unprecedented for a modern-day president, say travel experts. Since leaving office in late January, Obama has visited late actor Marlon Brando’s private island; the Four Seasons in Bali -- where rooms cost upward of $2,000 per night; Indonesia; a Palm Springs...
  • Polls: Trump Keeps and Expands His Base

    Despite the marches and protests of Brownshirt fascists everywhere, and despite the unprecedented negative fake news coverage of his first 100 days, Trump’s supporters are unfazed. Just a week ago Pew showed that he had lost almost none of his base. Now, a new People’s Pundit Daily poll out of Florida shows that Trump remains very strong in the Sunshine State. Richard Baris, the president of PPD, says “Since the election, the President’s support among whites has held roughly even in the nation’s largest battleground state, while his support among non-whites, particularly Hispanics, has risen slightly on almost ever measure.”...

The U.S. military fired at least 50 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha'irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said.

    A high-ranking representative of the Syrian Democratic Forces, who wished not to disclose his name, has told Sputnik Turkiye that the US is "taking all necessary measures" to defend the Syrian city of Manbij from an attack by the Turkish military.

  • Vanity: How to decorate around a Christmas tree with very large base holder?

    12/08/2016 8:25:01 PM PST · by Yaelle · 99 replies
    Ok, we are surprising someone tomorrow with a Christmas tree. We are Jewish so pretty clueless as to how this works. Got a beautiful tree about 6 feet, best watering stand we could find, even got millions of little lights all up around it (thanks, YouTube!). But it needs something around the base. Thought I could just grab a tree skirt, but this tree has an enormous stand, diameter maybe 2.5 feet. The skirts only have a small hole for the trunk. What can we put under the tree that would fit? So many Christians here who put up trees...

    LOUIS — Donald Trump adopted a base-first strategy at the second presidential debate, tossing red meat to his most fervent supporters in an effort to save his campaign from imploding. Trump might have had little choice after an extraordinary weekend that saw Republicans fleeing his campaign.

    The commander of the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay on Saturday ordered the evacuation of families and other so-called “non-essential personnel” from the remote outpost in southeast Cuba ahead of Hurricane Matthew. “A mandatory evacuation has been called for all non-essential personnel,” said Guantánamo base spokeswoman Julie Ripley, in a statement issued just before 1 p.m. “The location will be announced once details are finalized. This includes dependents, school-aged children, special needs families, and their pets.”

    A U.S. Navy sailor was sentenced Friday to two-and-a-half years hard labor for raping a Japanese tourist in Okinawa. Justin Castellanos, 24, who was based in the district's Camp Schwab, pleaded guilty in May to raping the 40-year-old victim in his hotel room in Naha, south Japan on March 13. The serviceman had found the woman, who was drunk and asleep in the hotel lobby, and taken her up to his room where he assaulted her. 'I am sorry for what I have done,' he told the court. 'My heart is filled with regret,' Stars and Stripes reports.

    There hasn’t been this much excitement in the luxury boxes since the 1991 Kentucky Derby when Mane Minister showed at 87-1. Marco Rubio’s expected third-place showing set off a frenzy of spin and sly promotion in the commentary class. The conventional wisdom is that Rubio is the more electable Republican in November as compared to Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. The conventional wisdom is wrong, just as it was in 2012 and 2008. Marco Rubio has two significant problems that render him a problematic November candidate. The first is his record on the most important issue of the year. The...

    European Space Agency's head Jan Woerner released the vision outline for the Moon Village, which could replace the International Space Station as early as 2030. The lunar village will be composed of structures created by 3D printers and robots using Moon dusts as raw materials. Woerner became the ESA head in July 2015 and made the Moon mission the space agency's central project. Woerner added that this lunar project is a crucial step towards the future flight to Mars. "I looked into the requirements I see for a project after ISS. As of today, I see the Moon Village as...

    Many political reporters are trying to ascertain why there is so much anger on the right. Why are so many people willing to cast a protest vote for Donald Trump given his personal baggage and ideological inconsistencies? Why is there unprecedented hatred for the Republican Party by GOP voters, bordering on calls for a third party? On a Friday during the dog days of summer, there is usually not a lot of political news worthy of print. But this year is different. Not a day goes by when Americans are not entreated to another story about the foundation of their...

    It is appropriate Scott Walker will be making his formal presidential candidacy announcement in Waukesha. While Walker may be a Wauwatosa resident and was Milwaukee County executive before being elected governor, his political base – and the biggest reason he is a viable presidential contender – is the Milwaukee suburbs. Waukesha is the unofficial capital of the suburbs and the heart of Walker Country. In all three of Walker’s winning elections for governor, he received staggering margins in the crescent moon region that wraps around Milwaukee County. Walker drew more than 70 percent of the vote in Washington, Waukesha, Ozaukee...

    Cyprus will offer Russia military facilities on its soil, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Friday. In an interview with a local newspaper, Anastasiades said that a pact strengthening defense relations between the two countries will be signed when he visits Moscow on Feb. 25. "There is an old (defense) agreement which is to be renewed as it is. At the same time, some additional facilities will be provided just like we do with other countries - France and Germany for example," Anastasiades said. Cyprus is currently providing facilities to French planes, such as refueling and maintenance at an air force...
