Mayor Carmen Cruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico delivered an emotional message on Friday, amid the logistical difficulties and bureaucratic red tape that has slowed down the hurricane-relief effort on the island "We are dying here," Cruz said in a press conference. "And I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot figure out logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles long." "So I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives," Cruz continued. "If anybody

New York City´s Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina recently announced the new "Free School Lunch for All" for the big Apple´s public schools. This means that the entire public-school population, some 1.1 million students, will now be provided with free lunches irrespective of family income. Prior to this, approximately 75 percent of the city´s students were getting free lunches. Under this "Free Lunch for All" program, an additional 200,000 students will now be eligible. This will save the just included families about $300 a year as the cost of a school lunch is $1.75. To the precious few in New York

Gun violence claimed the lives of two men and wounded seven others in less than seven hours Friday night on the city’s West and Southwest sides. The most recent killing happened in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, Chicago Police said. Someone walked up to a 49-year-old man and shot him in his face just before 9 p.m. in the 4700 block West Jackson. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Less than two hours earlier in the Little Village neighborhood, a 27-year-old man was shot in the head by a person who approached him on foot and began shooting, police

Lance Armstrong. Remember him? The once-everywhere cyclist, who famously won the Tour de France seven consecutive times, is now starting up a different hill. As Outside magazine reports, in November, Armstrong will be on trial for defrauding the U.S. Postal Service via wins won by using performance-enhancing drugs. He stands to lose just shy of $100 million—or his reported net worth. Remember: He’s already told the world that he’s a cheat. On Oprah, no less. Outside caught up with Armstrong on his “new narrative,” and tried to figure out whether he was truly sorry for all his misdeeds. RealClearLife has

Blame the NFL, Not Trump

I do not believe Trump made matters worse. Regarding the exhibition of contempt by NFL players during the playing of the national anthem, this puts me, quite unusually, at odds with a number of my friends and colleagues at National Review (Jonah Goldberg and David French, for example). To my mind, to say that the president made things worse is to understate how bad things were — i.e., how appalling the fraud behind the kneeling protest has been. More damaging than anything Trump has said, moreover, is the indulgent reaction to the protest: The received wisdom that even if we

Megyn Kelly’s Trainwreck First Week of

The first week of Megyn Kelly’s daytime talk show, it turns out, was fantastic television. Don’t be confused: It was a disaster. But a disaster that couldn’t have been more compelling to watch. That whole watching-a-trainwreck analogy? This is what a $15 million one looks like. Kelly, of course, became a star on Fox News, praised for attorney-like interrogation of her guests and her sniper-like toughness when a target came at her with bullshit. In its infinite wisdom after spending all that money to woo Kelly away from her cable-news desk and giving her a daytime TV show, NBC thought, “All those things

Robert Mueller is Facing His Biggest Question
Yet: Should He Prosecute the Cover-up Before
He´s Certain There´s a Crime?

Of all the avenues in the sprawling Russia investigation, Robert Mueller appears to have advanced the furthest toward assembling an argument that Donald Trump obstructed justice. And in the coming weeks, the special counsel’s team will interview a former top White House aide who could verify key pieces of the puzzle. Then Mueller would confront the thorniest question yet: does he prosecute the cover-up or hold out to try to nail possible underlying crimes? The core of the obstruction claim has been clear for months. On February 14, 2017, Trump convened eight of his top advisers in the Oval Office

As Secretary of Homeland Security, Gen. John Kelly spent months touting a hard line on immigration. He argued publicly and privately with Congress that if there were objections to the laws, it was up to legislators to change them — not to blame enforcers on the front lines. But after a particularly contentious meeting with Democrats on the Hill regarding DACA this past summer, he was informed by Senate leaders that he appeared not to have been “read in” to some conversations going on in the White House, according to three sources with direct knowledge of the matter. The president’s son-in-law, Jared

Are we finally getting through to the GOP Establishment; has the pain we militant normals have dealt it performed the vital task of being the teacher of last resort? It’s too bad that’s how the Establishment has to learn that we’re serious about nuking business as usual. We tried being nice; that was the Tea Party, and the Establishment trashed it. Welcome to moderately mean. Don’t make us get even meaner. Poor Luther Strange, the Collateral Damage Candidate.

Florida´s attorney general doesn´t want O.J. Simpson to return to Florida after he´s released from prison in Nevada. Attorney General Pam Bondi sent a letter to Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Julie L. Jones on Friday saying that she should immediately tell Nevada officials that Florida objects to Simpson serving his parole in Florida. "Floridians are well aware of Mr. Simpson´s background, his wanton disregard for the lives of others, and of his scofflaw attitude with respect to the heinous acts for which he has been found civilly liable.

OJ Simpson will make a 415-mile journey handcuffed in a cage in the back of a prison van before he is freed next week, DailyMail.com can reveal. The journey, which takes approximately six hours and 30 minutes, will take him from Lovelock Correctional Center, in northern Nevada, to High Desert Prison, in Indian Springs, 45 miles outside Las Vegas. It is likely to include a restroom break in Tonopah – a tiny town of 2,478 people that is home to a small prison camp.

The "Women´s Convention," a meeting tied to the "Women´s March" movement, is keeping some people out because of its price tag: $295 for adults and $125 for students. Some attendees also remain confused as few details about the event have been made available, the Detroit Free Press reported. One attendee, Sheryl Pittswolff, of Freeport, Ill., asked for a refund for her group.

Whitney Houston may have warbled that the children are our future. But they’re not great political analysts right now. The folks over at The Washington Post seem to have forgotten this particular fact, so they decided to head over to four third-grade classes around Washington D.C. to hear what the tykes have to say about the issues of the day. Unsurprisingly, the small children thought and spoke like small children, which meant they sounded like Leftists. As the Post acknowledged, “While the students were diverse socioeconomically, they were — like the Washington region as a whole — exceedingly un-diverse when

Three major stories in political media were revealed this week to have serious flaws. Russian Hackers Didn’t Actually Target Wisconsin And California’s Voting Systems. The Department of Homeland Security stated last Friday that Russian hackers tried to hack into the voting systems of 21 states including Wisconsin and California. But DHS backtracked this week, stating that hackers targeted the California Department of Technology and the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development but not voting systems in those states. “Either they were right on Friday and this is a cover up, or they were wrong on Friday and we deserve an apology,”

GOP Senators Roy Blunt and Jerry Moran have introduced legislation which would outsource another 125,000 white-collar jobs to foreigners each year. The outsourcing bill is being pitched as a pro-technology, pro-entrepreneurship bill even though many young and middle-aged Americans in the two Senators’ home states of Missouri and Kansas are already working with technology or as entrepreneurs. The outsourcing bill is dubbed the “Startup Act,” and it closely models prior bills sought by the high-tech sector, where executives and investors are working to raise profits by further reducing the salaries paid to American college graduates and technology experts. If enacted, the bill would

Travel for Trump administration officials on government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft, will now require prior approval from White House chief of staff John Kelly, after it was revealed that multiple senior officials in the Trump Cabinet were using private jets and military aircraft to conduct business on the taxpayers´ dime. Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, revealed this point in a letter he sent out Friday reminding staff of administrative policies regarding travel after President Trump accepted Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price´s resignation.

Former President George W. Bush has criticized President Donald Trump´s decision to impose travel restrictions on North Korea as part the administration´s revised travel ban. During a private dinner which was off-the-record on Thursday night, President Bush suggested the policy would discourage dissidents and defectors who might be looking to flee the country, however relatively few North Koreans are even capable of traveling to the US in the first place.

Donald Trump took fire from both leftists and intellectual conservatives for his attack on the NFL protests, but he got it one hundred percent right. Here´s why. First, lay aside any notion that kneeling during the anthem is not disrespecting the flag or that respecting the flag is somehow idolatry. Bret Stephens — whom I admire both for his intelligence and independence — told Chris Matthews on MSNBC that conservatives should support the kneelers: "We don´t worship the flag as a totem like it´s the obelisk that descends on planet Earth in 2001: A Space Odyssey. We admire the flag because

The United States holds a commanding 8-2 lead at the halfway mark of the Presidents Cup after winning all but one of Friday´s five four-ball matches. Adam Hadwin and Hideki Matsuyama were the only members of the International Team to avoid defeat on Day 2 at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, where the Canadian and the Japanese earned a half up against Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, whose putt to win the match at the 18th agonizingly lipped out. That was the only disappointment for the hosts and holders, though, as Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler saw off Branden Grace

Looking exactly like the bunch of surly, sullen, spoiled babies they are, during Thursday night’s NFL game between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, the players might have all chosen to be muscle-bound pouters while locking arms, but… BUT!… those very same surly, sullen, spoiled babies were all standing for the “Star-Spangled Banner.” Same thing happened Monday. They locked arms. They pouted. But the Dallas Cowboys all stood for the national anthem. As far as Sunday goes, the Pittsburgh Steelers have already reassured their justifiably enraged fans that when the national anthem plays, the team will stand. If
