Then there was his uncle P.T. Barker who coached for the Yankees. Depressed that he wasn't meeting up to the family standard of manliness, the Beast slipped in to the Trump lounge in the lobby to drown his sorrows.
For the most part, those protesting President Donald Trump on Inauguration Day did so peacefully—but a couple hundred “anti-fascist” protesters marred events in the nation’s capital when they began smashing storefronts and bus stops, lighting fires, and hurling objects at police. At the time, 230 people were arrested for rioting, which forced law enforcement to use flash-bang grenades and pepper spray. And now, at least 214 people have been indicted on felony rioting charges, CNN reports. On Tuesday, a grand jury in DC charged five individuals. This was in addition to the 209 other defendants who´ve been indicted on rioting charges earlier
We’ll look for expanded video of the visits today by Secretary Kelly and Secretary Tillerson to Mexico and South America. In the interim thanks to DaveNYviii for this segment of a press conference in Guatemala. Woo doggies,…. DHS Secretary General John Kelly drops an absolute truth bomb in a joint press conference earlier today. Speaking with Interior Minister Francisco Rivas the severity of Secretary Kelly’s words are a stunning reflection of the change in approach.(Snip) John Kelly’s message to Guatemalans (and others) Your journey north is going to be brutal. IF you make it you’re going to be returned fast. pic.twitter.com/AN2XSpq4cH
An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders. It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of
Hello? On Wednesday’s Hannity radio show, Sean replayed a clip of his recent TV interview with House Speaker Paul Ryan.(Snip) Ryan specifically said the Congressional Budget Office was scoring a specific plan. Yet there on the Wednesday Hannity radio show were members of the House Freedom Caucus saying they had seen no such bill. Huh? Hannity was gobsmacked. So stunned that he suggested he would come back to D.C. and do a joint televised interview with Ryan and the House Freedom caucus members to find out what in the world is going on.
Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents
President Trump has confirmed that retired Lt. General H.R. McMaster is his new choice to be his National Security Adviser. There have been indications that the Republican establishment has been trying to co-opt Trump and keep him from effecting the sweeping reform that he has promised, and this appointment could indicate that at least for the moment, these forces have gained the upper hand. (Snip) No transcript or video is publicly available, but there was a large crowd, and multiple witnesses. In his address, McMaster said flatly: “The Islamic State is not Islamic.”
In Orange County, California, dozens of immigrant parents have signed legal documents authorizing friends and relatives to pick up their children from school and access their bank accounts to pay their bills in the event they are arrested by immigration agents. In Philadelphia, immigrants are carrying around wallet-size "Know Your Rights" guides in Spanish and English that explain what to do if they´re rounded up. And in New York, 23-year-old Zuleima Dominguez and other members of her Mexican family are careful about answering the door and start making worried phone calls when someone doesn´t come home on time. Around the country,
TEL AVIV – The New York Times this week continued its month-long campaign against designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization amid reports the Trump administration is debating the possibility of issuing an executive order making such a designation. Declaring the Brotherhood a terrorist organization would add the U.S. to the growing list of nations to do so, including Muslim countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The Times’ crusade culminated in the newspaper’s publication on Wednesday of an oped written from Egyptian prison by Gehad el-Haddad, the official spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood. In the piece, Haddad whitewashed

The Oscars are nearly upon us and tension is building. No, not for who might win the big awards on Sunday night. But over which star can win the most coveted prize for Best Celebrity Trump Hater on the Planet. This is the big one for all those hysterical Hollywood liberal snowflakes who’ve been frothing at the mouth since Donald Trump became President. They’ve got live TV, a billion or more people watching around the world, and a room full of 3,500 largely like-minded souls all waiting to roar on every Trump-bashing speech from the podium. (Photos) All eyes, of
Gary Cartwright, a colorful Texas journalist who began his career on the talent-laden sports staff of the Fort Worth Press in the 1950s, died Wednesday morning after suffering a recent fall at his Austin home. He was 82. Cartwright went on to become an award-winning sportswriter for the Dallas Times Herald and The Dallas Morning News. He left The News in 1967 to advance a career that included writing the 1968 novel The Hundred Yard War, inspired by his coverage of the Dallas Cowboys. But his most prominent years as a journalist came during his time with Texas Monthly. He worked for
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Instead of holding a record-low number of elected offices at the federal, state and local levels, Democrats were supposed to have unshakable majorities. Instead of relying on a handful of “blue wall” states in the upper Midwest to preserve Democrats’ electoral college advantage, the party was supposed to expand into territory once held by Republicans. Among Democrats, it became common wisdom that a “rising American electorate” of nonwhite voters, millennials and single women would mean long-term Democratic majorities. But since the halcyon days of 2009, Democrats have lost one-fifth of their Senate seats,
A students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) activist and pre-school teacher has been suspended from her job because of her anti-Semitic comments on Twitter. University of Texas-Arlington (UTA) student Nancy Salem, who teaches young kids at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington was outed by Canary Mission, a campus watchdog group, along with dozens of others for racial hatred. EAGnews.org posted some of the offending tweets made by Salem, a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement: “@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough” “Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See
In 2011, Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., delivered his first inaugural address. He laid out an agenda focused on returning to "frugality in government" and building an economic climate that would create new private-sector jobs. Walker assured everyone that, despite the tough challenges facing the Badger State, Wisconsin was up to the task and would serve as a model for the rest of the nation to follow. To some, this seemed quaint and naïve, given the lingering effects of the economic crisis. But Walker has spent the last six years proving those skeptics wrong. Walker gained national attention when he took
An official arm of the Democratic party is behind a planned demonstration against Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday outside the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. The Mexico chapter of Democrats Abroad — “the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States,” according to the group’s website — is organizing the demonstration against Tillerson, who arrived in the Mexican capital on Wednesday. Advertising for the demonstration on The Action Network, a website for left-wing activists, says that “Democrats Abroad Mexico and other progressive organizations like the Women’s March and Bridges to Understanding have
Robert Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley and former U.S. Secretary of Labor, has insinuated that President Donald Trump incited Monday’s riots in Sweden — echoing his unproven conspiracy theory just weeks ago that Breitbart News organized violent demonstrations at his university. “Trump’s lies have consequences,” Reich wrote Tuesday afternoon on Twitter. “48 hrs after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community.” His statement refers to President Trump’s comments at a Florida rally this weekend, describing problems in the European country due to heavy migration from Muslim-majority nations: We’ve got to keep our country safe. You
Has Trump Derangement Syndrome affected the ability of Nancy Pelosi to perform normal life functions (for a politician)? Or is age finally taking its toll on her? Or have the laws of karma struck back at the party that claims the 25th Amendment could be used to force President Trump out of office for “mental incapacity”? It is hard to say, but yesterday, Rep. Pelosi appeared to suffer a form of mental breakdown while speaking to a leftist support group, repeating words, choosing the incorrect word, and claiming that John Kasich is the Governor of Illinois.
Our national media has a knack for missing important trends. It is focused on what is seen as a general confusion and a lack factual fidelity in the Trump administration. The media misses entirely the contrast in adult responsible behavior by Republicans and the increasingly irresponsible Democrats. Republicans at all levels of government are trying to solve America´s problems. Democrats are, at best, indifferent; It requires only a sliver of cynicism to conclude that very liberal Democrats are actually working to make our problems worse. Here´s a review of five of our most pressing problems. If I´m missing some good works
Venezuela´s new vice president, Tareck el-Aissami, is in a pickle. It´s not just that the country he runs is collapsing all around him, and that baying mobs are growing increasingly bolder about seeing his kind swinging from a dictator´s meathook. Nor is it that the average weight loss of the average Venezuelan is now 19 pounds a year, for lack of food in the socialist price-controlled environment. No, his problem is that last Feb. 13, the U.S. Treasury put his name on something called ´the Clinton List´ - the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act - which includes a special list
“Division” was the word of the night during Wednesday’s debate between eight candidates who are vying to become the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) next chair. Elections are this Saturday in Atlanta Georgia, where 447 DNC members will vote to appoint their party’s next chairman. (Snip) While the candidates differed on how to unite their fractured party, the one topic on which they almost unanimously agreed was their opposition to President Donald Trump. Ellison, who along with Perez is a leading contender for the chairmanship, said: “Trump has done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment.” Perez said a “unified
Longtime radio and cable news broadcaster Alan Colmes is dead at the age of 66. Fox News moments ago reported on Colmes’ death with a segment narrated by Sean Hannity, who paired with Colmes for years on the venerable talk show Hannity & Colmes. Hannity identified his old colleague as, “one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people.” This news is breaking and we will update as we learn more.
It didn’t take long during tonight’s DNC leadership CNN debate for candidates to get a question about impeachment. Congressman Keith Ellison said, “Trump has done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment.” He pointed to Trump being in violation of the emoluments clause and said this is about protecting “the integrity of the presidency.” Jehmu Greene also weighed in and said that Democrats must be the last line of defense against Trump if he commits any impeachable offenses. Watch above, via CNN.
Chris Matthews and the Goofy Looking Dude from the Southern Poverty Law Center have a point: We do not have any evidence Donald Trump did not personally knock over 200 headstones in a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis. But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing. The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) secretly traveled to northern Syria last weekend to speak with American military officials and Kurdish fighters at the forefront of the push to drive Islamic State out of their de facto capital of Raqqa, according to U.S. officials. The unusual visit, which officials said was organized with the help of the U.S. military, came as the Trump administration is debating plans for an accelerated military campaign against Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL. Mr. McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, first traveled to rebel-controlled Syria in 2013, when he met
President Trump’s selection of Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to be his national security adviser has been widely praised, and rightly so. McMaster is a remarkable man cut from the same cloth as the new secretary of defense, Jim Mattis. Both are inspirational leaders. Both are thoughtful, well-read “soldier-scholars.” Both are clear thinkers and straight talkers. Indeed, McMaster’s intense, fierce outspokenness has not always endeared him to his superiors. McMaster’s story has been recounted many times in recent days. A native of Philadelphia, he is a 1984 graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point. Later, he earned a PhD
