Most Americans think Donald Trump would have still won the White House regardless of information leaks that came out of Russia´s alleged hacking, a poll reported. In the study, 58 per cent thought the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections would have remained the same, despite the hacking of files from the Democratic National Convention. Americans thought ´regardless of the information released as a result of Russian hacking´ Trump would still have won the election, according to a poll conducted by CNN and ORC. A minority of 40 per cent of people said the information leak was damaging enough to change voter´s

Obama scores the worst
legislative record in history

President Obama oversaw the deepest legislative malaise in modern political history, according to the Washington Times Legislative Index, which captures his struggles to find ways to work with a Congress that ranged from lukewarm to openly hostile toward him. Over the course of his eight years, he has signed just 1,227 bills into law — less, even, than one-term Presidents Carter and George H.W. Bush. Digging deeper into the numbers, Congress spent less time in session, handled less business on the chamber floors and generally sputtered for much of Mr. Obama’s tenure, according to The Times’ index. Blame for the

Sam Moore of the soul duo Sam and Dave has been added to the list of performers for President-elect Donald Trump´s inaugural events. The 81-year-old will perform at the Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on Thursday. Others expected to play include country stars Lee Greenwood and Toby Keith. He also revealed he asked if he could take Jennifer Holliday´s spot, after she backed out of performing. Moore described the criticism directed at Holliday, which led to her canceling her performance, as unfair. Moore said he initially planned to attend the event at

Theresa May yesterday rejected the case for keeping Britain tied to the EU single market – pledging instead to ‘rediscover’ our role as a ‘great, global, trading nation’. The Prime Minister said that membership of the single market ‘would to all intents and purposes mean not leaving the EU at all’, owing to its rules on free movement and accepting the supremacy of the European Court of Justice. To the fury of Remainers, she said this would not be acceptable to a British public which voted to retake control of its own destiny. ging instead to ‘rediscover’ our role as

MORE than 1,000 British tourists have been forced to flee Gambia after the President declared a state of emergency in the volatile nation – throwing the country into chaos. Thomas Cook has decided to bring holidaymakers back to the UK after a 90-day state of emergency was declared by Gambian President Yahya Jammeh – just two days before he was set to step aside. The latest stunt by President Yahya Jammeh is the latest in a string of attempts to extend his 22-year reign in office. The President, who refused to step down after losing the election earlier this month,

CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny argued on Tuesday that President Obama commuted Chelsea Manning’s prison sentence because the former Army private is transitioning from a man to a woman. “I think the question this president and the White House will have to answer here, will answer, and I think it’s an important one, how much was the personal story of Chelsea Manning involved in this,” Zeleny said in a panel discussion of the White House decision. Manning, who was formerly known as “Bradley,” was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013 on espionage charges for stealing nearly one million classified

Obama pardons Cartwright,

WASHINGTON -- US President Barack Obama pardoned 64 people and commuted sentences for an additional 209 on Wednesday, among them retired Marine Corps four star general James Cartwright, the alleged source of leaked information to the press detailing a cyber attack on Iran´s nuclear facilities in 2010. Cartwright pled guilty last year to providing false testimony in 2012 to FBI agents on the matter. Obama cleared him of punishment for that transgression, the White House said. Cartwright allegedly leaked documents on the Stuxnet virus– a sophisticated computer program that destroyed thousands of Iran´s uranium-enriching centrifuges– to David Sanger, a senior New

Political counter culture icon Andrew Breitbart mastered the use of a simple term: “SO”? Whenever challenged about the downside of his approach, AB had an inherent knack for removing toxic attacks by owning, yet not accepting their framework of, the downside; then artfully he’d expose their banality through simple counter questions, ‘truisms’. Rabid leftists would never quite know how to respond to the linguistic judo and consistently over react in behavior and declaration. This exposed their ideological moonbattery. Sometimes he’d even join them in leading a chant framed to display the inevitable conclusion of their current protest: What do we

(Video) Donald Trump may have a point about paid protesters: Job ads running in more than 20 cities offer $2,500 per month for agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events. Demand Protest, a San Francisco company that bills itself as the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12 in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.” “Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad. “We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues.

A teacher in Michigan reportedly will not allow his fourth-grade students to watch President-elect Trump´s inauguration speech Friday. In an email to parents Monday, Brett Meteyer said he will let students watch Trump´s inauguration ceremony, but will not show the speech because he fears what the 45th president could say. "Because I am concerned about my students and your children being exposed to language and behavior that is not in concert with the most conservative social and family values, I have decided to show the inauguration Donald Trump this Friday, but we will not view Mr. Trump´s inauguration speech," he

Libs are mad because Hillary lost, and they are acting out. They kept pushing their bad policies and their disdain toward middle America until there was backlash. When America voted to elect Trump, the liberals were shocked to their core. Now they are grappling with the aftershock– that we also voted our consciences. Democrats are used to bullying and character assassination of opponents to get their way. It didn’t work with “Teflon Don” Trump. They have finally met their match in Trump, a man who will stand up to them. America cheered.

For eight years, the Obama administration misjudged Vladimir Putin’s Russia, as it misjudged most of the Middle East, China, and the rest of the world as well. Obama got wise to Russia only when Putin imperiled not just U.S. strategic interests and government records but also supposedly went so far as to tamper with sacrosanct Democratic-party secrets, thereby endangering the legacy of Barack Obama. (Snip) In theory, Obama would captivate Putin with his nontraditional background and soaring rhetoric, the same way he had charmed urban progressive elites at home and Western European socialists abroad.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would mandate the declassification and public release of information on previous terrorist activities of former Guantanamo Bay detainees transferred since the presidential election. The Defense Department has announced the transfer of several Guantanamo prisoners to foreign countries in recent months, as Republicans in Congress have expressed concerns about former prisoners resuming terrorist activities and the ability of foreign governments to keep track of ex-detainees. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that 10 detainees were transferred to the government of Oman this week, whittling the prison population down to below

President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes. Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers. Obama included Manning on a list of prisoner commutations announced late Tuesday afternoon, allowing him to be set free on May 17, 2017. During the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest noted the “stark” differences between Manning and

In the 228 years that America has been governed by the Constitution, no President or Vice President has ever been sworn in by an African American Supreme Court Justice. That will all change on Friday when Justice Clarence Thomas administers The Oath of Office to Vice President-elect Mike Pence. To make an already historic event even more unique, Pence will be the first elected official to be sworn in on the Reagan family Bible since the late president used it during his own inaugurations. The Bible will be opened to the same passage Reagan used during his inaugurations, II Chronicles

The scam is being described as one of the most convincing yet, and tricks users into giving their Google login details, allowing the attacker to sift through their messages. Emails containing the rogue attachment can come from people in the recipient´s own address book, and attacker can even copy their style of writing, convincingly passing the fake email on to the victim´s contacts.

During a discussion in front of some of the economic elite here at the World Economic Forum, Kerry was explaining why he thought a Trump administration could not unilaterally pull out of the multinational nuclear deal with Iran, an action that was one of Trump´s most pronounced campaign promises on foreign policy.

A set of spectacular pictures have emerged showing a precarious mountain motorway carved out of cliffs in remote China by local villagers hoping to reach the outside world. Located in Ningqang county in Shaanxi province, this 6000-metre-long (3.73-mile-long) road was designed and built by residents of Xifanggou, according to Xinhua. Construction started in 2000 and finished in 2006. (Photos) Driveways are carved from the vertical cliffs of Daba mountain, north-west China. The road has brought Xifanggou villagers closer to the nearby Maobahe Town as it shortened the usual travelling time to 10 minutes to reach the closest bus stop. There

President Barack Obama commuted the majority of Chelsea Manning´s prison sentence on Tuesday, with only three days left in office. Manning, an army intelligence analyst, was originally convicted in 2010 for leaking a trove of files to Wikileaks that revealed American military and diplomatic activities around the world. She received a 35-year sentence for the leak and has served seven years in Fort Leavenworth. She will now be freed in 5 months on May 17, The New York Times reports. Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, said last week that he´d agree to be extradited to the US if Obama grants clemency to

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration, and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous. The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to commit suicide last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the male military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed

The Obama administration was full of scandal, though we have a lazy and partisan news media that is determined to see no scandal in it. The lame-duck columns have been nearly unanimous on the point: Barack Obama is remarkable among recent presidents for having been utterly untouched by scandal, personal or political. The personal can be conceded: There is no serious allegation that President Obama suffered from the liberated appetites of a Bill Clinton, and the White House interns have by all accounts gone unmolested. But this is hardly remarkable: There were no such allegations about George W. Bush, either,

Critics of President-elect Donald Trump appear to have found a new respect for the Central Intelligence Agency, after years of heated criticism. Journalists highlighted the “insanity” of CIA Director John Brennan’s rebuke of Trump’s disparaging accusation of the intelligence agency’s possible role in leaking a salacious dossier on his personal conduct. (Snip) Many of the same organizations and politicians decrying Trump, publicly lambasted the CIA as recently as 2014. Senate Democrats sponsored a mammoth investigation into the CIA’s past supposed “torture” programs, which was heavily disputed by the agency itself. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein even accused the CIA of trying
