President Obama will tell Americans Tuesday night in his farewell address that actively engaged citizens are the key to creating a more perfect union. “This is the great gift our Founders gave us,” Mr. Obama will say, according to excerpts of his speech released by the White House. “The freedom to chase our individual dreams through our sweat, toil, and imagination – and the imperative to strive together as well, to achieve a greater good.” He’ll speak to nearly 20,000 supporters in Chicago, where, he has said, “it all began.” Among the warmup entertainment are singer Eddie Vedder and a 24-member children’s
Comments: OH puhleeze stop!! I just want him to shut his mouth. He´s done enough to destroy this perfect union. We sure as heck don´t need him to allegedly form a ´more perfect union.´ What a bunch of horse manure! That guy is a sick lying psychotic narcissist.

Milo Yiannopolous has been quiet since the University of California Berkeley practically burned down its own campus to prevent him from speaking, but the self-described “media sensation, conservative celebrity and youth culture icon” says he’s spent the last few months forming up a major media conglomerate and he’s ready to take on political correctness in a big way.

ATLANTA — Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. on Friday issued criticism that spanned the political spectrum, telling gun-rights activists that “rat bastards on the left” never give up while also saying some of the misadventures of the GOP-led Congress can be “very painful” to watch. “We won a huge battle last November, but we did not win the war,” Sheriff Clarke said at the NRA lobbying arm’s 2017 Leadership Forum. “You see, our fight for freedom continues in earnest.” (Snip) “You see, for them defeat is never final. Election defeats don’t matter,” he said. “It’s simply a
North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday, but the missile "broke up in flight" and has been deemed a failure, two U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News. The missile has been assessed to be a KN-17, a former Scud missile that officials believe is being tested to one day target ships. It flew roughly 25 miles and was in the air for about 15 minutes, officials tell Fox News. The KN-17 was launched from Pukchang. A White House official told Fox News that the U.S. is not suprised by this latest test, nor the fact that it failed. The White House is watching the situation closely and consulting with

For U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Adam Wylie, "Emra" -- the 9-year-old Belgian Malinois he was forced to leave behind in South Korea -- was more than a service dog. The canine filled the void of family when Wylie, a 12-year veteran of the armed forces, was deployed from 2012 to 2014 in South Korea where he was stationed around Osan Air Base. "She meant the world to me," Wylie, 33, told Fox News. The two -- separated for three years -- were reunited April 20 in Cincinnati in a heartwarming reunion that at first seemed improbable. Emra had retired
White House reporters launched a hard-hitting attack on Donald Trump Saturday at the annual Correspondents´ Association dinner - which the President pointedly snubbed. The president of the White House Correspondents Association, Jeff Mason, used the get-together at the Washington Hilton to strongly criticize a president who has used his first 100 days of power as an opportunity to attack the media. The absence of President Donald Trump, who has called the media ´fake,´ ´dishonest´ and even ´the enemy of the people,´ marks the first time a president has declined since Ronald Reagan in 1981, who was, at the time, recovering
Washington- Political analyst David Gergen delivered a harsh critique of President Trump´s campaign-style rally Saturday night in an appearance on CNN´s "Newsroom." "To bring your campaign speech into the presidency is something presidents rarely do," said Gergen, who has been a White House adviser to four presidents. "This was the most divisive speech I´ve ever heard from a sitting American president." Trump´s delivered a rousing address to a crowd of supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania instead of attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner in Washington. The nearly-hour long speech began with attacks on the press and covered his tax plan,
He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for
When someone is honestly 55 percent right, that’s very good and there’s no use wrangling. And if someone is 60 percent right, it’s wonderful, it’s great luck, and let him thank God. But what’s to be said about 75 percent right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about 100 percent right? Whoever says he’s 100 percent right is a fanatic, a thug, and the worst kind of rascal. — An old Jew of Galicia In the final stretch of last year’s presidential race, Hillary Clinton and her team thought they were, if not 100 percent right, then very close.
New york - Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room.

Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America. He equated them with jihadists when he called them the derogatory word, alt-jihadists, meaning that Americans who speak and write against the evils of Islamic jihad and sharia are just as bad as jihadists. (snip)I have always respected what Zuhdi Jasser was trying to do and avoided contradicting him in public, even though I do not believe that Islam is reformable. I have kept my opinion to myself regarding the false hope Muslim reformers are giving to the Americans regarding Islam. But when Jasser attacked leaders
Washington - Prominent Washington journalists, if not Hollywood stars, celebrated the First Amendment during the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an event that lacked the glitter of past years because of the absence of the president of the United States. (Snip) “We’ve got to address the elephant that’s not in the room,” cracked the entertainment headliner, Hasan Minhaj of “The Daily Show” on TV’s Comedy Central. “The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight. As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke.”
