ERIN, Wisconsin — Just when it appeared the size of the moment might be getting to Brooks Koepka, he pulled out a 3-wood, gripped it, and ripped it. His ball sailed toward the green at the par-5 14th, and though it landed just short in the greenside bunker, it showed that Koepka wasn’t just trying to hang on to win the 117th U.S. Open. He was going to grab this tournament by the throat. Koepka pitched out, drained the birdie, then carded another right afterward at the 15th, and the victory march was on. In a matter of about 10
So now it turns out that the Trump-voting neighbor of deranged Bernie Sanders campaign worker James Hodgkinson was giving the bloodthirsty moonbat a good leaving alone in downstate Illinois. “He was a Democrat and I was a Republican,” Aaron Meurer told the Belleville News-Democrat, “so we didn’t have too much to talk about.” Naturally the mainstream media claims to find this “troubling,” not to mention “problematic.” Why can’t we all get along, as Rodney King once said. But what the h**l was Meurer supposed to discuss with his Bernie Bro neighbor? Last night’s Rachel Maddow hatefest on MSNBC? Robert B.
Israel has reportedly been discreetly supporting Syrian rebel groups for years in order to protect its northern border from the war raging in Syria. Israel has been secretly providing aid to Syrian rebels groups in the Golan Heights for years, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday night. According to the Journal, Israel has offered rebel groups medical supplies, food, funding and even hard cash in order to safeguard the country´s border from the ever-deepening crisis taking place in Israel´s northern neighbor Syria, which is suffering from the consequences of the bloody and grueling civil war raging in the country since
The mother of a US Navy sailor who survived a direct hit to his sleeping berth during a collision at sea said her son kept diving to try to save his shipmates until the flooded berth began running out of air pockets, while others - believing the ship was under attack - hurried to man the guns. Mia Sykes of Raleigh, North Carolina, told the AP on Sunday that her 19-year-old son, Brayden Harden, was knocked out of his bunk by the impact, and water immediately began filling the berth, after their destroyer, the USS Fitzgerald, collided with a Philippine-flagged
Yokosuka, Kanagawa Pref. – The search for seven missing U.S. sailors was called off Sunday after bodies were found aboard the destroyer that collided with a container vessel Saturday, the commander of the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet said. At a news conference at the Yokosuka naval base in Kanagawa Prefecture, Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin didn’t specify the number of bodies found and said the names of the deceased would be withheld until their families are notified. The grim information came a day after the guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippine-flagged, Japanese-charted container ship about 100 km southwest of Yokosuka. The Fitzgerald,
Washington - A Republican congressman who survived the horrific baseball shooting will put forth legislation this week to allow lawmakers to carry guns throughout the nation’s capital. “I’m going to be introducing legislation this week … to allow Congressmen to carry a sidearm, should they so desire,” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” Members of Congress are “high-profile targets, but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.’s rather restrictive gun laws.” Brooks said the legislation would allow members of Congress be armed in places throughout
As Congress plans the repeal of Obamacare, government websites set up to sell insurance under the program are beginning to grapple with an uncertain future and whether they can adapt to a GOP model down the road. State-run exchanges in more than a dozen states cost billions to set up, and they serve as the public delivery system for Obamacare-compliant plans and federal subsidies that make coverage more affordable for low- and moderate-income Americans. Yet, they’re also the “front-door” for determining whether customers qualify for the federal-state Medicaid program or tax credits on the individual market —
Contractors and council chiefs could face manslaughter charges over the Grenfell Tower inferno. Senior prosecutors are already advising detectives investigating who was responsible, it emerged yesterday. Everyone from local politicians who ignored warnings to contractors who fitted flammable cladding can expect to be questioned. One MP demanded police seize crucial documents in raids as he said contractors were already deleting details of their work on the 24-storey block from websites. The plastic panels – that even the manufacturer warned were a deadly fire risk – are banned on high-rise buildings in Britain, ministers said yesterday. Yesterday Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders confirmed
Google is to start automatically searching for extremist material online – as it finally takes seriously the threat of terrorists on the web. The internet giant will use computers to look for potentially dangerous content, which will then be reviewed to decide if it should be taken down. Technology firms, including Google and its video site YouTube, have been accused of dragging their feet and failing to remove extremist material quickly enough. As part of the new effort, Google will use technology to help identify extremist videos. It is then extending its funding of experts who decide whether material should be taken
Washington - Southeast Asia´s jihadis who fought by the hundreds for the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria now have a different battle closer to home in the southern Philippines. It´s a scenario raising significant alarm in Washington. The recent assault by IS-aligned fighters on the Philippine city of Marawi has left more than 300 people dead, exposing the shortcomings of local security forces and the extremist group´s spreading reach in a region where counterterrorism gains are coming undone. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told Congress last week a long-running U.S. military operation to help Philippine forces
Tehran - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps launched several midrange missiles from western Iran and struck targets in Syria on Sunday, aiming to punish “terrorists,” who committed last week’s attacks in Tehran, it said in a statement. The Guards Corp said it “targeted the headquarters and meeting place and suicide car assembly line” of “ISIS terrorists” in the province of Deir al-Zour, where Islamic State forces surround an estimated 200,000 people in a government-held section of the provincial capital of the same name. The Guards Corps said the strike, sending missiles flying over neighboring Iraq into Syria,
A high-level employee at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2014 appeared to give leaders of liberal-leaning groups preferential treatment for posting and publicizing comments on the agency’s public forum for the net neutrality debate. Details of the highly friendly support were first described by then-The Washington Post’s Nancy Scola, who referred to it as an “unusual collaboration” in an in-depth report on the FCC’s filing system. Those details became significantly more incriminating after Mike Wendy, director of the market-oriented nonprofit MediaFreedom, recently received once-classified pieces of electronic communications years after he filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
President Trump called Camp David a "very special place" after spending his first weekend at the presidential retreat. "Camp David is a very special place," Trump tweeted Sunday evening. "An honor to have spent the weekend there. Military runs it so well and are so proud of what they do!" (Tweet) Trump usually spends weekends at properties he owns, like the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., and the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.The president was joined at Camp David by first lady Melania Trump, son Barron and Melania Trump´s parents. Trump returned to the White House on
The attempted mass murder of several Republican members of Congress by a lone Bernie Sanders Democrat was the foreseeable fruit of the “Resist!” movement. I know: I predicted it. Barring a change of approach on the anti-Trump side, more such extremism is likely. Anomalous response to President Trump has been the Democrats’ strategy since election day when, contrary to custom, Hillary Clinton never made an appearance before her assembled staff and supporters to concede victory on camera. Within hours of Trump’s victory, leading Democrats such as Representative Maxine Waters of California were calling for impeachment. Waters’ ridiculous recommendation drew and draws widespread
President Trump rescinded Barack Obama´s goofy Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, which allowed people to come to America illegally, give birth on American soil, and then claim legal status because, hey, their kid is an American, right? I get that Democrats need votes, but Congress -- not the president -- enacts laws. Some publications and bloggers believe that because he took action only against illegal alien parents that means he is cool with keeping illegal aliens who came here as kids under Obama´s equally goofy Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. I liked it better when we were a nation of laws, but
Democrats are daring President Trump to fire Mueller and Rosenstein. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha (inhales) hahahahahahahahaha. (Snip)Let´s get this impeachment over with, once and for all. Schiff is such a liar that he could work for CNN. Lieu is only an MSNBC-level prevaricator. Impeach, try him, vote, and see how the public reacts.President Trump should call their childish bluff and just fire Mueller and Rosenstein.
My father was the most reasonable man I have ever known. The most loving man I have ever known. He had a challenging life: father unemployed during most of the Great Depression. Shy. But brilliant beyond words. Entered Williams, the finest small college in the world — at 15. Worked his way through partly by washing dishes at a fraternity that didn’t admit Jews. Never complained about it. He said it didn’t make him angry. He was just grateful to have been able to go to a super great college in the midst of the worst industrial depression on record.
(Video) Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Angus King (I-ME) said the Senate Intelligence Committee was about 20 percent into the Russian collusion investigation during the 2016 presidential election. Partial transcript as follows: TODD: Where is the Senate Intel Committee on this investigation timetable wise? I know you don’t know the exact end day of when you think you can draw a conclusion, but at least give me some sense of where you are. KING: First I can say categorically that the collusion or cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over. As far as that goes, I would
Madison and Dane County leaders are hoping to inject a note of inspiration into the seat of local government by renaming it after the only president who ever set foot near it. At a Thursday press conference, County Executive Joe Parisi announced the effort to christen the structure known for 60 years as simply the City-County Building as the President Barack Obama City-County Building. “Barack Obama was the JFK of our generation,” Parisi said at the steps of the seven-story edifice. “He deserves to be honored, and he deserves to be recognized, not only for his accomplishments, but for his commitment to
Uncle Joe launched a Super PAC this month in an obvious attempt to keep himself relevant for the next election. (Snip) Uncle Joe also wants Americans to believe that the Democrat Party supports the working class. This comes after: Democrats destroyed the US steel industry --Democrats tried to destroy US mining-- Democrats worked to destroy the US oil and petroleum development across the country-- Democrats shut down common sense pipeline projects that are environment friendly-- Democrats destroyed the sugar industry in Hawaii-- Democrats destroyed vegetable and fruit farming in California-- Democrats destroyed lumber industry in Oregon-- Democrats killed coal – and
When I wrote two weeks ago about how liberals would not stop until someone got killed, I was hoping it was more of a warning than a prophecy. Unfortunately, it was not. But the actions and words of leftists in the wake of the attempted slaughter of Republican members of Congress –for the sin of not being Democrats – has done nothing to bring about the moment of reflection one might expect from people with blood on their hands. Thankfully, the only life lost was that of the progressive terrorist who sought to embody the attitude of the media and the Democratic
An Oscar Wilde line comes to mind: “I can resist everything except temptation,” said the famed playwright and novelist. Let’s hope President Trump is made of sturdier stuff and can resist the temptation to tell special counsel Robert Mueller, “You’re fired!” Understandably, Trump is considering doing just that. With leaks about the expanding investigation being spoon-fed to anti-Trump media and with Mueller’s hiring spree including Democratic donors, the president has reason to suspect he’s being set up for a fall. Yet, in the short term at least, there is a better option. Instead of firing the special counsel, which would serve as
An African holiday resort popular with Western tourists has reportedly been stormed by gunmen. Gunmen stormed Le Campement Kangaba in Dougourakoro, to the east of the capital Bamako, a resort foreign residents often visit for weekend breaks. It is not yet known if there are any casualties from the incident, but a major operation involving Malian troops and soldiers from France´s Bakhane counter-terrorist force is still ongoing. ´Security forces are in place. Campement Kangaba is blocked off and an operation is under way,´ Security Ministry spokesman Baba Cisse said. ´The situation is under control.´ Security has gradually worsened in Mali since French forces pushed
A GIRL of four was saved from the Grenfell Tower inferno when her mum dropped her from their smoke-filled fifth-floor flat into the arms of a neighbour. The terrified child escaped uninjured after the man, known only as Pat, caught her “like a rugby ball tucked in his chest”. But witnesses said the flat was engulfed in flames seconds later and the mother was feared to have died. Resident Kadelia Woods, 20, said: “The mum had the little girl’s head wrapped in a towel and was holding her out of the window and was screaming for help. The fire was raging like crazy. It was about 2am and the flat was filled with smoke. Content added**
Can we agree that depravity is a specialty of the left? Following every attack by Palestinian Arab terrorists against Israeli civilians, world leaders immediately jump in call for “calm” from “both sides.” For some reason, Dafna Meir comes to mind. She was a young Israeli mother and nurse who answered the doorbell to her home in the southern Mount Hebron region of Judea. Most likely she answered with a smile. It was that kind of neighborhood and she was that kind of woman. She was not prepared for a knife-slashing Arab murderer who, for no known reason, had come to kill her and
Residents whose homes were destroyed in the Grenfell Tower fire will get a £5,500 Government down payment from tomorrow. The announcement was made by Downing Street on Sunday evening, as the Prime Minister faced intense scrutiny over her government´s reaction to the disaster. Residents will be given £500 in cash followed by a bank payment for the rest from Monday. Theresa May insisted the Government was doing everything possible to help those caught up in the tragedy. The money will come from the £5 million fund announced by Mrs May on Friday. No 10 said further payments will be available from the Westway Centre
