Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke praised President Trump in a weekend interview, calling him “the best boss” he´s ever had. “He’s the best boss I’ve ever worked for.

California Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that fellow Washington Democrats acted “inappropriately” if they indeed met with Ukrainian officials to get potentially damaging information on 2016 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump -- amid widespread probes, allegations and revelations about the Trump campaign meeting with Russian officials to try to derail Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign. “It wouldn’t be appropriate for the Democrats to get help from the Ukrainian government,” Schiff, the top Democrat on the House´s Intelligence committee, which is investigating the Russian meddling, told ABC’s “This Week.” “It would be problematic to get any kind of support from a
This summer we mark the 20th anniversary of a major investigation by Congress of attempts by a hostile foreign power to influence an American presidential election. I’m glad the news media is pursuing the Trump–Russia scandal, but let’s not forget the differences between how they are covering Russia compared with how they reported a similar story — this one involving Communist China — that developed during Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection campaign. The Washington Post reported in 1998 that “evidence gathered in federal surveillance intercepts has indicated that the Chinese government planned to increase China’s influence in the U.S. political process
No bigger example that punditry is a dangerous game exists than Lincoln Steffens´ wildly optimistic declaration -- after a three-week visit to the Soviet Union in 1919 -- "I have seen the future and it works!" I am on my way back from a two-week tour of Baltic cities, including one in Russia, and I will throw caution to the wind with my own declaration -- "I have seen the future and it´s miserable." I was tempted to say "stinks," rather than "miserable," but I decided to hold back just a tad. After all, the six cities I visited -- Copenhagen, Gdansk,
President Trump´s overall approval rating may have fallen, but there´s one issue on which he has the support of 60% of the American public. That´s the proposed travel ban from certain Muslim-majority countries, according to a Politico-Morning Consult poll earlier this month. In fact, Trump has enjoyed the support of a plurality of all voters, Democratic as well as Republican, since he first proposed a travel ban in December 2015. Trump´s boldness horrified the Establishment but probably won him the nomination; three-quarters of Republican voters in the key South Carolina primary backed the travel ban. The whole Republican leadership abhorred
The terrified British PR man at the center of the Russian White house scandal has cut short his luxury European tour to hold urgent meetings with his lawyer in LA, MailOnline has learnt.

The condition for which Senator John McCain had surgery on Friday may be more serious than initial descriptions have implied, and it may delay his return to Washington by at least a week or two, medical experts said on Sunday. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has already announced that votes on a bill to dismantle the Affordable Care Act will not begin until Mr. McCain’s return. A statement released by Mr. McCain’s office on Saturday had suggested that he would be in Arizona recovering for just this week, but neurosurgeons interviewed said the typical recovery period could be longer.

Mr. Romero is often credited with pioneering the zombie genre thanks to his 1968 low-budget black-and-white classic “Night of the Living Dead,” in which a satellite returning to Earth unleashes radiation that reanimates the dead, turning them into cannibalistic, mindless beings trudging after their victims. Mr. Romero’s film pioneered several of the genre’s staples, including the slow-moving monsters grunting unintelligibly,

The Catholic Church is a boat “on the verge of capsizing,” said Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in a personal message for the funeral Mass of his close friend, Cardinal Joachim Meisner on Saturday. Given his inability to travel, the usually silent retired Pope delivered the message in writing, and had it read aloud in the Cologne Cathedral by his personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, who also serves as Prefect of the Papal Household for Pope Francis.

Republicans may be consolidating behind President Donald Trump—and against the legacy media—the more the establishment press sensationalize their Russia coverage. Despite the legacy media’s wall-to-wall coverage of various Russia-related “scandals” involving President Donald Trump’s associates since April, “the number of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who think that the Russians sought to influence the election, and that the Trump team intentionally helped them,” has plummeted from 18 percent in April to nine percent, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Sunday. The poll was conducted July 10-13. Partisan divisions in the poll were “35-23-35 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.” Its margin of error
