PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Navy says it will now allow servicewomen to sport ponytails and other longer hairstyles, reversing a policy that long forbade them from letting their hair down. Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson says it makes the Navy more inclusive. Many black women had asked for changes to the female grooming standards. A female sailor announced the new policy during a Facebook Live event Tuesday with Richardson. Lock hairstyles, or ropelike strands, are also now allowed. Wider hair buns too. And women can wear ponytails while in uniform. At the U.S. Naval War College in Rhode

While organized labor had a friend in former President Barack Obama, who stacked the National Labor Relations Board with career union labor lawyers, unions are now having a harder go at it under the Trump administration. In fact, unions accustomed to be provided free government office space to conduct their business are finding themselves with an option of either paying rent or being kicked to the curb. At least two government agencies have begun efforts to implement President Trump’s recent workforce executive orders governing union use of agency property, according to officials with the National Treasury Employees Union.

Wednesday at a press conference, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) described the NATO alliance as “indispensable.” When asked about President Donald Trump calling NATO allies “delinquent” in paying for defense, Ryan said, “I subscribe to the view that we should not be criticizing our president while he’s overseas. But let me say a couple of things NATO is indispensable. It is as important today as it ever has been. We are reflecting that in a resolution we are bringing to the floor today.” He added, “With respect to Nord Stream 2, I saw the president mentioned that. We’ve

There is pleasure to be had in watching Democrats make fools of themselves. As expected, President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has brought out the crazy in America’s liberals. We have already noted an example or two. But there is much more enjoyment to be had. (Snip) You can only shake your head at the superhero powers allegedly wielded by a single Supreme Court justice. I’d be interested to hear Terry McAuliffe explain why “[t]he nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come.” I guess Kavanaugh is

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

Walking around New Orleans´ Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, people are still angry at the impact of Hurricane Katrina and how unprepared the city was for the massive storm nearly 13 years on. But now some of their wrath is directed at Brad Pitt and his charity Make It Right. After the levees of the city´s industrial canal were breached, the Lower Ninth Ward of predominantly black and low-income families was decimated by the floods, with most houses swept away or left in ruins. Among the first to lend a helping hand was Pitt, who - along with his then wife Angelina Jolie - owned a house in New Orleans and set up the

It´s time to ´reimagine´ birthright citizenship

One of the biggest challenges in the immigration debate today is that the American people are routinely given faulty "facts" or outright lies by the media and opportunistic politicians. The media-manufactured crisis over separating children from their illegal alien parents at the southern border is just the most recent example. The misrepresented photos, absurd comparisons of detention centers to concentration camps, and nonstop cable news demagoguery have served to confuse the public and advance the narrative of the open borders movement. Now comes a whopper: much of what the American public has been told about birthright citizenship is wrong. The

The Left’s Trump Card On Kavanaugh:

According to the Left, Brett Kavanaugh is unqualified for the Supreme Court not because he lacks the credentials or even because he´s conservative, but rather for the intersectional crime of being straight, white, and male. Even though the Left fervently opposed the nomination of Justice Clarence Thomas to the point of slandering his good name and would have raged against whomever President Trump nominated no matter their color or sex, leftists from late-night to the NY Daily News are all saying that Brett Kavanaugh is just 50 shades too white for the SCOTUS job.

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants. In an interview, Pocan, D-Wis., said the legislation would

Many liberal groups have expressed substantive concerns over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, the abortion advocacy group NARAL voiced a rather odd, personal objection to Kavanaugh: his first name. “We´ll be D****D if we´re going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” they wrote in a tweet.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted out a dire warning that all of Trump’s potential nominees “want to take away a woman’s constitutional right to make her own health care decisions.” “We cannot go back to the days before Roe v.

There can be no better example of Democrats not respecting the concept of borders than New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio illegally crossing the southern border with Mexico. Joining mayors from around the country, de Blasio went to the U.S.-Mexico border last month to score political points over President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy toward illegal immigration. (Photo) While one might think the mayor would have his hands full running the largest city in America, a scarier possibility may be that his interest in national affairs could be a sign of a looming de Blasio presidential run.
