A senior U.S. Secret Service agent is under scrutiny after she shared several controversial Facebook posts excoriating President Donald Trump, at one point implying she would rather go to jail than “take a bullet” for Trump. The Secret Service told The Washington Examiner that they are “looking into” the posts made by Kerry O’Grady, the special agent in charge of the USSS Denver district. In an October Facebook post, O’Grady appeared to openly defy the Hatch Act, which bars some federal employees from advocating for a partisan political party, group or candidate, and proclaimed her support for Hillary Clinton: "As

New York - The Trump administration removed an apology from the State Department to the LGBTQ community for discrimination dating back to the 1940s, prompting criticism for advocacy groups. Former Secretary of State John Kerry published an apology on the site for the department’s past discrimination based on sexual orientation – but it has since disappeared from the site. “[T]he Department of State was among many public and private employers that discriminated against employees and job applicants on the basis of perceived sexual orientation, forcing some employees to resign or refusing to hire certain applicants in

San Francisco - Two Los Angeles police officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man described by his lawyer as mentally challenged will face no criminal charges over the 2014 killing, the district attorney said on Tuesday, calling their actions "legally justified." The killing of 25-year-old Ezell Ford was one of many shootings of unarmed black men by U.S. law enforcement that triggered national protests and fueled a renewed civil rights movement known as Black Lives Matter. In a redacted report, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said Officers Sharlton Wampler and Antonio Villegas spotted Ford leaving a

Trump tweeted a photo of the portrait, which was taken by Washington-based photographer Abbas Shirmohammadi, during Friday´s inauguration ceremony. Trump blasted the media during a speech at CIA headquarters on Saturday, accusing journalists of underreporting the number of people who attended his swearing in. The crowd, he said, stretched across the National Mall from the Capitol to the Washington Monument.

David Brock, the Democratic operative who founded the left-wing Media Matters for America, plans to use a news entity he recently purchased as the nucleus of his efforts to delegitimize President Donald Trump, according to confidential documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The 44-page confidential memo shows how Brock seeks to defeat Trump through impeachment by using

President Donald Trump attended an interfaith service at the Washington National Cathedral on January 21st. It was a beautiful service until an Imam read from the Quran, cursing Christians and Jews. Of course he recited this prayer in Arabic so the only people attending who were able to understand him were most likely Muslim. (Snip) Last Saturday, at a National Prayer Service in Washington D.C. attended by President Donald Trump, an imam named Mohamed Magid recited Sura 1, calling on his god to show special disfavor to Jews and Christians.

Democrats are blocking the confirmation of Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education nominee Betsy Devos by forcing her to answer 837 written, followup questions from her Senate confirmation hearing. “Mrs. Devos’ Senate opponents are grasping for straws,” Sen. Lamar Alexander said of the decision in a post for Medium. “We didn’t have time to question her, they say, even though she met with each one of them in their offices, and her hearing lasted nearly an hour and a half longer than either of President Obama’s education secretaries.” Alexander notes that while answering followup questions is customary practice for nominees, the

The controversy surrounding the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump´s inauguration has spilled into the confirmation hearing of one of his White House nominees. Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley asked Rep. Mick Mulvaney, Trump´s pick to run the Office of Management and Budget, to weigh in on the debate over who had the bigger inauguration crowd — former President Barack Obama or Trump. Merkley brought in a blown-up side-by-side shot of Obama´s 2009 inauguration and Trump´s inauguration last week. Merkley noted that Sen.

The White House issued a statement Tuesday requesting privacy for President Donald Trump´s young son, Barron. The 10-year-old was the subject of some mocking on social media during Trump´s inauguration. One "Saturday Night Live" writer was suspended from her job over an insulting tweet she posted about Barron. "It is a longstanding tradition that the children of Presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight," the statement said. "The White House fully expects this tradition to continue. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter." The focus on Barron brought derision from both sides of the

A high-school teacher who was jailed for performing sex acts on her underage pupils has blamed her strict religious upbringing for her crimes.

Her defense lawyer, Alissa Hascup, said the Muslim woman was driven in part to commit the offences due to her strict religious upbringing, and suggested that she be treated by a therapist as oppose to serving

Four days after the election, Clinton privately blamed Comey for her election loss to Trump, telling donors Trump was able to use the FBI chief´s

The date for President Trump´s first speech before a joint session of Congress has been written on the calendar. House Speaker Paul Ryan has invited the brand new president to appear on Capitol Hill on February 28. This isn´t a State of the Union address, per say – as new presidents typically don´t give on in their first year of office – but will likely feature similar pomp and circumstance.

President Trump on Tuesday imposed a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding new contracts or grants. Emails sent to EPA staff since his inauguration on Friday and reviewed by the Associated Press detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency’s social media accounts. Trump — who at a meeting with automakers Tuesday insisted he was “an environmentalist” — also ordered a “temporary suspension” of all new business activities at the department, including issuing task orders or work assignments to EPA contractors.

There are multiple voices raising concern about President Trump not taking immediate Executive Action to reverse former President Obama’s DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. To those voices this message is intended. Now is not the time to address DACA. The UniParty and the UniParty friendly media are trying to bait President Trump into jumping into a politically charged issue they will use to slow, if not destroy, the larger agenda.

He also banned funding for groups overseas that refer women to abortion clinics and froze most federal hiring, in between meeting with business leaders and lawmakers.
