    ATLANTA (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence’s visit Thursday to Atlanta included a stop at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s field office and a conversation about the “broader mission of border security.” He also blasted Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms over her decision last year to bar the city jail from holding federal immigration detainees and thanked the men and women who work for ICE. Pence highlighted some of the ICE arrests made in the area, including one Wednesday night in Riverdale, Georgia, news outlets reported. “Atlanta and Georgia are safer today because of the outstanding work of the men and...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is stuck once again between a President whose support he needs to win re-election and his lifelong friendship with the late Arizona Sen. John McCain, who encouraged all to put country first. But time and political necessity have softened Graham's public grievances with President Donald Trump. The presidential embrace has been months in the making. Beginning with golf outings with Trump, Graham now frequently takes calls from the President. In recent months, the South Carolinian has become a close Trump confidant on Capitol Hill, an alliance that has afforded him broad influence over the GOP conference...

    Vice President Mike Pence is making a trip to South Carolina to help kickoff U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham's bid for a fourth term. Graham's campaign says Pence will be with Graham at events in Myrtle Beach and Greenville on March 30. In a release, Graham praised Pence as "a strong ally and close friend." The 63-year-old senator has often fielded challenges from the right in his previous re-election campaigns, subject to criticism that he's been too willing to work with Democrats to accurately represent conservative South Carolinians.

    But Dixon was guilty of a very bizarre comment himself involving St. Patrick's Day. The tweet from 2012 sprang back into prominence on Sunday because of the "Hamilton" furor with many commentators claiming it refers to blacks raping drunken girls on St. Patrick’s Day.

    Last week, Vice President Mike Pence attended a private event at the American Enterprise Institute—a center-right think tank that traditionally holds an “internationalist” view on foreign policy—where he received an ear-full from none other than former vice president Dick Cheney.Cheney and his pals are very upset over the Trump administration’s “America-First” foreign policy. Cheney went after President Trump for seeking to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan and Syria, asking wealthy European allies to pay more for NATO, meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, and not taking all the advice of his intelligence chiefs, among other things.CNN’s Michael...

    Warning: Hypocritical hit piece The Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar, who is gay, brought his partner to a meeting on Thursday with the US vice-president, Mike Pence, a conservative Christian once dubbed “the face of anti-LGBTQ hate in America”. Varadkar, who is in Washington this week to reaffirm the longstanding shared history between the two countries, brought his partner, Matt Barrett, to a St Patrick’s Day breakfast at the vice-presidential residence at the Naval Observatory. Varadkar tweeted that he and Barrett had received a “warm reception” at Pence’s home, but in pointed remarks to Pence and gathered media, he also...

    It’s hard to believe that the Democratic Party has managed to shred itself so quickly after so many years of unwavering support from media and culture outlets. The Clintons - perhaps the shadiest political dynasty of our modern age - enjoyed nearly absolute cover when it came to news of their misdeeds; news that should have made anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty even just slightly curious. Look at what Bill Clinton has survived even in the era of #MeToo. Even if you don’t believe the rape charges against him, the Lewinsky fiasco and the Clinton’s ensuing, merciless take-down...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) warned Republicans on Friday that voting for Chad Readler, President Trump’s nominee to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, is a vote against protecting with people with pre-existing conditions. Readler, who served until September as assistant attorney general for the civil division at the Department of Justice, filed a brief last year supporting a lawsuit filed by Texas and other states seeking to strike down the Affordable Care Act. “As Mr. Readler is the author of the Trump administration’s decision to side with Republican attorneys general suing to repeal our health care law, Senate...

    Pence said, “Under the guise of Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, Democrats are embracing the same tired economic theories that have impoverished nations and stifled the liberties of millions over the past century. That system is socialism.” He added: “We know where socialism leads. You want socialism, just look at Venezuela. Venezuela was once one of the richest and most vibrant democracies in the Western Hemisphere, but under Maduro’s socialist rule, it has become one of the poorest and most despotic. Today, more than 9 out of 10 people live in poverty.” Pence singled out Sen. Bernie...

    If you thought the 2016 U.S. presidential election was ugly, you haven’t seen anything yet. If an interaction this week between former Vice President Joe Biden and actress Cynthia Nixon serves as an indicator, the upcoming 2020 election is going to be far nastier, personal, and vicious. Biden, who’s reportedly mulling yet another White House bid, spoke Thursday at the Chuck Hagel Forum in Global Leadership at the University of Nebraska Omaha. During his address, Biden touched on the international community’s reaction to Pence’s speech this year at the Munich Security Conference.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s tendency to talk about his good relationships with Republicans landed him in trouble Thursday when he called his successor, Mike Pence, a “decent guy.” The comment was quickly criticized by fellow Democrats, including actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, who tweeted that Biden had complimented “America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader,” forcing Biden to walk back his comment. “You’re right, Cynthia. I was making a point in a foreign policy context, that under normal circumstances a Vice President wouldn’t be given a silent reaction on the world stage,” Biden tweeted. “But there is nothing decent about being...

    Vice President Mike Pence said in a wide-ranging speech Friday that President Donald Trump and the United States will continue dialog with North Korea to pressure the country towards denuclearization, after a recent summit between the two countries was cut short due to disagreements in negotiations. "Last night, Trump returned from a second historic summit with North Korea in Vietnam,'" Pence said at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, after the US-North Korea summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, broke up earlier than expected without a deal. "The President said it was productive two days and discussions among teams will continue....

    Former vice president Joe Biden was in Omaha at the Forum in Global Leadership at the University of Nebraska-Omaha yesterday when he said a kind word about our devout Christian Vice President Mike Pence. Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday described current Vice President Mike Pence as “a decent guy,” but then quickly backtracked following criticism from actress Cynthia Nixon. Biden made the comment while speaking at an event in Omaha, Nebraska. The remark provoked a quick backlash online from left-wingers. Nixon addressed Biden in a tweet, writing “you’ve just called America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader ‘a decent guy.’ Please consider...

    Full headline: Rep. Judy Chu thinks POTUS, VP should have to release their tax returns but not Nancy Pelosi — she’s wrong on both countsSince before the 2016 election Democrats (and some Republicans) have pushed POTUS Donald Trump to release his tax returns but after initially pledging to do so once auditors were finished with them, he has changed his mind. Now the new House Democrat majority wants to force the president to release his returns, along with Vice President Mike Pence under legislation known as H.R. 1. On Jan. 3, the first day of the 116th Congress, Rep. John...
