When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms

Former FBI Director James Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” will be released Tuesday, but portions of the book have already stolen the headlines in the political world as excerpts leaked. The Washington Examiner reviewed a copy of Comey’s book on Sunday. Here are the top 11 nuggets and passages from “A Higher Loyalty”: Nobody sat at the opposite end of the table from the president because that would block the video screen and camera that allowed senior leaders to join from the road. They would appear on the screen in a Hollywood Squares setup, visible only from the waist up.

Chopped romaine lettuce grown in the Yuma, Arizona, area is to blame for a multistate E. coli outbreak, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday. "At this time, no common grower, supplier, distributor, or brand has been identified," the CDC said. So far 35 cases of E. coli illness in 11 states have been reported and linked to the outbreak.

If my headline doesn’t make much sense, well, it’s a pretty accurate summary of Washington Post blogger Max Boot’s column yesterday. When FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired, Boot was one of the people who came out swinging. @MaxBoot The firing of Andrew McCabe is the latest attempt by the Trump administration to undermine the FBI, obstruct justice, and pervert the rule of law. Trump is intent on punishing and intimidating all of the dedicated law enforcement personnel who stand in his way.

The top executive of a Southern California private charter airline says the Golden State’s hostile business environment propelled his company’s decision to relocate to Texas. “Not being viewed as an enemy, but being viewed as an asset is so refreshing,” said Alex Wilcox, Chief Executive Officer of JetSuite Inc., who, on Thursday, spoke to the Dallas Business Journal. He described the air carrier’s decision to move to North Texas this summer as a “welcome change.” He even shared a glaring example of one difference between California and business-friendly Texas. “I tried to start flying out of Santa Monica, California.

Mexico City - President Enrique Peña Nieto strolls along a beautiful beach in the television ad, his bare feet in the crystalline water as he talks about his government’s environmental achievements. The Mexican leader has starred in several commercials as his government has poured $2 billion of public money into advertising that effectively promotes its interests. (Snip) Most news outlets in Mexico rely heavily on public advertising; few would survive without it. That dependence gives officials leverage to push their owners to run favorable stories and stop others from seeing the light of day. Editors and reporters say officials

Despite what some grammar purists say, sometimes it is appropriate to use all capital letters to deliver a message. Consider Friday afternoon, when President Trump tweeted out his take on the official Department of Justice reports on the gross misconduct of crooked FBI agent Andrew McCabe: “He LIED! LIED! LIED!” (Snip) He was a modern bumkissing FBI bureaucrat — metrosexual pajama boy, skilled in sharpening pencils and shuffling papers, petrified by his own service weapon, which was most likely a .22.

The Minnesota Democrat said she’s stayed in touch with Franken, and spoke to him just this weekend. Klobuchar didn’t join the cohort of Democrats who called for Franken to step down in December, when a photo of Franken apparently grabbing a woman’s breasts resurfaced. The photo led to a landslide of accusations from women who said they’d been groped or

DOVER, Del. — Gun rights supporters — many carrying rifles and ammunition — gathered at state capitols across the U.S. on Saturday to push back against efforts to pass stricter gun-control laws that they fear threaten their constitutional right to bear arms. From Delaware to Wyoming, hundreds gathered at peaceful protests to listen to speakers who warned that any restrictions on gun ownership or use eventually could lead to a ban on gun ownership, which is guaranteed under the Second Amendment. "If you have a building and you take a brick out every so often, after a while you’re not going to

How Paul Ryan lost the GOP

The grassroots voters that fueled the extraordinary rise of House Speaker Paul Ryan spurned their erstwhile conservative hero for a new champion, President Trump, marking a generational shift in ownership and attitude of the Republican Party. A change in the philosophical predilections of the GOP has been blamed for this slow-rolling divorce, made official with Ryan’s announcement that he would step down as speaker and retire from Congress at year’s end after more than two decades in Washington. But irreconcilable ideological differences had little to do with it. The Republican base in the twilight of the Reagan era was hungering

(Snip) Yet that same Comey reportedly pitched the Obama White House the idea of first going public with the Russian interference claims by writing an oped in the New York Times instead of issuing an announcement by multiple intelligence agencies.
