This is something we should be very thankful for, because were they actually competent, they would have completely overwhelmed the spineless, feckless Republican Party and established total control decades ago. As it stands, because progressives in the United States have so little foresight and self'control, they end up damaging their own cause through their own foolish behavior and inability to moderate themselves for the sake of more broadly appealing to the masses. This was shown most recently in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where a crowd of left'wing hooligans—including a large Thinking of Truman Fri, 27 53 2016 12:53:10 GMT d36128a266960c1ef1539d3669a1083cf20cf4fe New York Sun, by Editorial Posted By: abuela10- Fri, 27 53 2016 12:53:10 GMT One day in April of 1945, Vice President Harry Truman was summoned to the White House, where he was immediately ushered into the First Lady’s private study. “Harry,” Eleanor Roosevelt said. “The President is dead.” Truman couldn’t speak for a few moments. Then he said: “Is there anything I can do for you?” Truman later wrote that he’d never forget her reply. “Is there anything we can do for you?” Eleanor asked. Let us think of Truman as President Obama prepares to go to Hiroshima to apologize for America’s use of the atomic bomb. Oh, we understand that Mr. Obama is Nominee or not, why is Trump still smacking Republicans around?

He was, of course, already the de facto nominee. But after all our months of obsessing over 1,237, there was something about seeing him exceed that magic number that underscored the magnitude of what Trump had just pulled off. I was about to go on the air and was thinking, who needs an election'night speech when you’ve got cable news? But while this should be a unifying moment for Trump, that hasn’t been Key ObamaCare Subsidy Program Suffers Another Blow Fri, 27 37 2016 11:37:17 GMT 11d984f87b5d0b50e23f682350d617e3bc174aaf Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline Posted By: PageTurner- Fri, 27 37 2016 11:37:17 GMT The House Republicans’ legal challenge to a key ObamaCare subsidy got a boost today from an unlikely source: an IRS official who said agency officials had doubts about the legality of the subsidy payments. The issue involves a second, little-known ObamaCare subsidy scheme that lowers out-of-post costs for lower-income families. Under ObamaCare, the federal government pays insurers for the cost of this subsidy, as it does for the cost of subsidizing insurance premiums. But unlike the premium subsidy, Democrats who wrote the ObamaCare law said that theses “cost-sharing subsidies” required an annual appropriation for Congress.

About 300 US special forces have been deployed to northern Syria. The US says their function is to train and assist rebels in a non'combat role. The YPG (Kurdish People´s Protection Units) and the YPJ (Women´s Protection Units) comprise the majority of the US'backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti'IS alliance.

Just goofy and funny and just super sweet,” said Rebecca Hubbard, who graduated from Tewksbury High School alongside Tarentino. “Everybody liked him. There isn’t anything bad that you could possible say about him.” As she wiped a tear from behind her sunglasses, Hubbard said his wake, which drew an Anthony Weiner: Behind the scenes of a political marriage Fri, 27 43 2016 10:43:43 GMT 2af4cb3b225acaf10b5fdcffe3b3ac8e0aa45d06 BBC [UK], by Tara McKelvey Posted By: Attercliffe- Fri, 27 43 2016 10:43:43 GMT Before the release of their new documentary, Weiner, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg told me that they´d asked their husband and wife protagonists if they wanted to see the documentary. Both Weiner and Abedin turned down the offer. It´s not hard to figure out why. For one thing, Abedin is working on Clinton´s presidential campaign, and they´re trying to beat the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, in November. Then there are more obvious reasons. The documentary tells the story of Abedin´s husband, Anthony Weiner. He resigned from the US congress in 2011 because of a sexting scandal and then ran for mayor of New Obama calls for ´a world without´ nuclear arms as he becomes the first US president to visit the city where 140,000 people died ' but there is no apology for atomic bomb attack Fri, 27 32 2016 10:32:54 GMT 05c31890146629ad8d66141a503eb376bd8c2946 Daily Mail [UK], by Darren Boyle, Framcesca Chambers Posted By: Attercliffe- Fri, 27 32 2016 10:32:54 GMT US President Barack Obama has arrived at the site of the first nuclear attack in Hiroshima alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and said he wanted to see a world without nuclear weapons. Obama is the first serving US President to visit the site where 140,000 people died following the dropping of the ´Little Boy´ bomb on August 6, 1945. He said: ´71 years ago, death fell from the sky and the world was changed,´ as he honored all of the victims of the Second World War after laying a wreath at the site.

Jordan Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 06 2016 10:06:06 GMT Severe storms and possible tornados ravaged much of Montgomery County on Thursday. Residents off Jules Anna Lane south of FM 3083 near Longmire Road say a tornado ripped through their neighborhood, damaging homes and knocking trees down. One tree struck a passing motorist as it fell off Longmire Road. “Really, we were lucky. Very lucky,” resident Gerald Hartwell said. “It could have been a lot worse. “I heard the roar, and I knew it was coming. We laid down in (our laundry room) for some reason. When you’re scared, you don’t know what to do. When it hits, it hits.” The storms ripped trees 21 famous people you didn´t know were buried at Arlington National Cemetery Fri, 27 51 2016 09:51:09 GMT 32572b8bdf0e3ac39d706a22c2a7f5f5033e3e25 Washington Examiner [DC], by David Wilkes Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 27 51 2016 09:51:09 GMT In May 1864, Arlington National Cemetery conducted its first military burials. Since then, it has become the final resting place for approximately 400,000 people who served the U.S. honorably. This Memorial Day weekend, here´s a look at 21 notable people you probably didn´t know are buried there. <b>Lee Marvin (1924'87)</b> Marvin is best known for his Hollywood acting in the mid'60s. However, he also was a Purple Heart recipient who fought in World War II. <b>William Howard Taft (1857'1930)</b>Taft is the only person to have served as chief justice of the Supreme Court and president of the United States. Under Dear Yahoo, Fire Katie Couric Fri, 27 43 2016 09:43:45 GMT 5e553401507a0e77719948f7eff64a073d6ae2d9 National Review Online, by David French Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 43 2016 09:43:45 GMT The case is clear. Katie Couric, a person Yahoo employs to be the face of its news division, was caught in a grotesque deception. Then, when she was publicly exposed, rather than apologizing, she doubled down — defending the choice to cast innocent Americans as ignorant rubes rather than allowing them to speak for themselves. She has lost her credibility. Any news organization that continues to employ her loses its credibility as well. Here are the facts, as exposed by the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski. Couric served as executive producer and narrator of a documentary called “Under the Gun,” Hillary Clinton, Drowning in Email Fri, 27 40 2016 09:40:31 GMT 468f13b127090989fe701b365af7a37ba25b20cd New York Times, by Editorial Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 40 2016 09:40:31 GMT Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency just got harder with the release of the State Department inspector general’s finding that “significant security risks” were posed by her decision to use a private email server for personal and official business while she was secretary of state. Contrary to Mrs. Clinton’s claims that the department had “allowed” the arrangement, the inspector general also found that she had not sought or received approval to use the server. So far, no security breaches have been reported; a separate F.B.I. investigation is looking into that. But above and beyond security questions, the inspector general’s report is Obama Admin Considers Permitting Advanced Russian Arms Sales to Iran Fri, 27 38 2016 09:38:44 GMT 9524a1ea100de1f1e2ca8361369d4683d43dc9f8 Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 38 2016 09:38:44 GMT The Obama administration has the power to sanction key Russian arms sales to Iran, but has so far abstained from exercising this right under U.S. law, prompting some in Congress to question whether the administration is “acquiescing” to the arms sales in order to appease Iran, according to conversations with sources and recent congressional correspondence to the White House exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. President Barack Obama has the authority under U.S. law to designate as illegal Russia’s contested sale to Iran of the S'300 missile system, an advanced long'range weapon that would boost the Islamic Republic’s regional military Hillary Clinton’s Village of the Damned Fri, 27 34 2016 09:34:59 GMT 0a2e6e672b6edfaa1bed187459ad5250fa054e4c American Spectator, by Gilbert T. Sewall Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 34 2016 09:34:59 GMT I recently revisited Hillary Rodham Clinton’s It Takes a Village, published 20 years ago. The village has since then become a Clinton trademark. It’s part of the Clinton personae and shtick. “We know that Hillary Clinton believes it takes a village to raise a child,” writes Lisa Bonos at the Washington Post. “The presidential candidate still draws on that village philosophy on the campaign trail.” The Post book critic Carlos Lozada calls It Takes a Village “the closest thing we’ve ever had to a fully formed political manifesto from Hillary Clinton.” The book does provide some insight into the Clintons’ core beliefs, Obama’s shameful apology tour lands in Hiroshima Fri, 27 30 2016 09:30:39 GMT 03cf8245872563bff05ac6da6b1eb3e094d2c4ba New York Post, by John Bolton Posted By: StormCnter- Fri, 27 30 2016 09:30:39 GMT An American president’s highest moral, constitutional and political duty is protecting his fellow citizens from foreign threats. Presidents should adhere to our values and the Constitution, and not treat America’s enemies as morally equivalent to us. If they do, they need not apologize to anyone. The White House says that Obama won’t apologize as he visits Hiroshima Friday. But who believes his press flacks? His penchant for apologizing is central to his legacy. He may not often say, “I apologize” explicitly, but his meaning is always clear, especially since he often bends his knee overseas, where he knows the foreign audiences will get The Clintons and the comeuppance at hand Fri, 27 25 2016 09:25:53 GMT 0959607fee0b480713aa9fa7c66f8ea67e379b88 Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 27 25 2016 09:25:53 GMT Reckoning comes late to the Clintons, but it comes. Bubba has skated past a lot of transgressions, always counting on his gift of gab and his deep'dyed Southern charm to escape retribution. He played the charm card with consummate skill: “Aw, shucks, what can you do with a good ol’ boy like me?” For a long time, not very much.

But I have a modest proposal for improving press performance: Elect a white male Republican. When Bill Clinton was inaugurated as president, actor Ron Silver, then a Democrat, was there. And when fighter jets flew over the Lincoln Memorial, he was reportedly at first upset at the military symbolism, but then reminded himself that since Democrat Clinton was being sworn in, ”those are our planes now.” We’re seeing something of a reverse'version of this phenomenon as large swathes of the commentariat realize that we might wind up with Electoral Hysteria Invites Defeat Fri, 27 13 2016 09:13:59 GMT 0d26f7f3b8538b2b6711a69201931cf3cb3b2bf1 American Spectator, by Mark Pulliam Posted By: Judy W.- Fri, 27 13 2016 09:13:59 GMT Before I wade into the overwrought debate over the prospective 2016 Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, allow me several caveats. (Snip) In a critically important election against a weak and unpopular (and therefore beatable) Democrat opponent, the rabid anti'Trump sentiment is a prescription for defeat — ensuring the equivalent of four (or eight) more years of the Obama administration, a fate our nation (and the free world) may not survive. It is time for the #NeverTrump absolutists to breath into a paper bag, calm down, and regain their senses.

Cupp Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 27 06 2016 09:06:25 GMT Fresh off a scathing New York Times profile on Donald Trump´s history with women, his recent pearl'clutching comments about Bill Clinton´s past indiscretions seem...a little insincere. Trump has recently said Clinton is a sexist and a rapist, and he´s now calling Hillary Clinton an &#34;enabler'in'chief&#34; for reportedly helping to cover up her husband´s infidelity and alleged sexual harassment and assaults against women including Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Gennifer Flowers. (Snip)What’s worse than the reversal, though, is the explanation the Trump camp has been giving for it.

It was a sea of familiar faces as well, with the event being hosted by one of Clinton´s most feverish and devoted supporters, Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Also lending a helping hand were two more of Clinton´s LA super supporters, CAA chief Bryan Lourd and The Palm owner Bruce Bozzi, who held the fashionable fete at their swanky Westside home.

A source inside Trump´s orbit told PJ Media that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is his most likely selection. Here are the six reasons why Newt has the best chance of becoming Trump´s running mate. <b>6.

The bill is known as blue lives matter, a take off on the Black Lives Matter movement that has been critical of police in the past year. Gov. Edwards released a statement explaining his support for the bill: “Coming from a family of law enforcement officers, I have great respect for the work that they do and the risks they take to ensure our safety,” said Gov.

In this interview, Trump cynically, crassly and recklessly insinuated that my brother, Vincent W.

In a two'hour deposition with the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch last week, Lewis Lukens also said he offered to set up a &#34;stand'alone&#34; computer for Clinton to check her personal email account, only to be told that she &#34;does not know how to use a computer to do email.&#34; Lukens´ testimony was released Thursday, the day after the State Department inspector general released a report criticizing Clinton´s
