(Video) Conservative columnist and commentator George Will announced that he is no longer a registered Republican after changing his Maryland registration from the GOP to "unaffiliated." "I´m an unaffiliated voter in the state of Maryland," Will told PJ Media in an interview. "This is not my party," Will said during a speech beforehand to the Federalist Society. He also reportedly said that House Speaker Paul Ryan´s decision to endorse Trump was part of why he left the party. Will said he isn´t sure whether he´ll vote for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. And he offered up a plan for conservatives to

Time for Trump to Put Up or Shut Up

Donald Trump should put his money where his mouth is. The real-estate mogul says he’s worth “in excess” of $10 billion. I think he’s lying, as does pretty much every expert and financial journalist who has looked into the question. Forbes has put his net worth at $4.5 billion. Bloomberg says it’s below $3 billion. Billionaire Mark Cuban has cast doubt on whether Trump is even a billionaire at all. I’ve read the analyses, but common sense always told me he was full of it. Actual multi-billionaires tend not to waste their time recording videos hawking steaks in the Sharper

Hey, Texplainer: Britain voted to leave the European Union. Can Texas secede from the United States? In the wake of Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union — nicknamed the "Brexit" — speculation of a Texit on the horizon has cropped up once again. The secessionist movement has a long history in the Lone Star State. Delegates for the Texas Republican Party even recently debated adding secessionist language to the party´s platform. But is it actually legal for Texas to leave the United States? Simply put, the answer is no. Historical and legal precedents make it clear that Texas could not

Obama Unloads on Trump at Fundraiser:

President Obama went on a tear against Donald Trump last night, expressing his frustrations with the GOP candidate dividing the country, “looking for scapegoats [and] ignoring the evidence.” The president preached a message of unity and told people not to get cynical, especially at the voting booth. (The fact that Great Britain voted to leave the EU despite him coming out against that may have left him feeling a little sour.) (Video) Obama said it’s important for all Americans to “assume the best in each other and not the worst,” and then said this: “We don’t have time for charlatans

Next to the propagation of the big lie, one of the most elementary and common devices in manufacturing propaganda is the notion that the truth is something you are not being told. From conspiracy theorists to those selling patent medicine on the Internet, everyone who whispers the words “secret” and “mystery” is using this device. But what happens when you already know you’re not being told the truth? The psychological impact is that much greater. Your normal inclination to be taken in by conspiracy theorists is all the more heightened when you know you are not being told the truth.

One of Virginia´s delegates to the Republican National Convention has filed a federal lawsuit in an effort to avoid voting for Donald Trump at the party convention next month. The delegate, Carroll Correll Jr. of Winchester, Virginia, argues in the suit that being forced to vote against his conscience is a violation of his constitutional rights. Correll says he will not vote for Trump, the presumptive nominee, because he believes the billionaire businessman is unfit to serve as president. Correll´s suit maintains that state law imposes criminal penalties on delegates who don´t vote on the first ballot for the winner of the state´s

BRUSSELS - The European Union´s chief concerns over Britain´s vote to leave the group are political but losing its second-largest economy will have a huge economic impact as well. Below are some of the main economic risks and benefits for the EU´s remaining 27 members. BUDGET/ECONOMY Other members will have to fill in at least some of the shortfall from a lack of its contributions. Britain´s total contribution to the EU budget for 2016 has been set at 19.4 billion euros ($21.4 billion), including its rebate and customs duties. It receives about 7 billion euros, mainly agricultural and regional subsidies, leaving a gap to

British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he will resign as prime minister after Britain voted narrowly to leave the European Union. Mr Cameron tried to reassure businesses around the world that Britain´s economy was fundamentally sound but world markets were thrown into turmoil on Friday after the final vote was announced. Donald Trump arrived in Scotland on Friday morning and said the British people had ´taken back their country´ and added: ´It´s a fantastic thing´. Later, when asked his opinion on Cameron quitting, Trump said: ´Well, that´s too bad.´ But Britain´s former Prime Minister Tony Blair said Brexit would

The Defense Department has been reviewing the policy for nearly a year Nearly a year ago, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said the U.S. military’s ban on the open service of transgender troops was “outdated” and promised the policy would be reviewed. Advocacy groups had grown impatient in the early months of this year, but a report late Friday indicates their wait is almost over. USA Today, citing an unnamed Department of Defense official, reports the ban will end on July 1 and that Pentagon officials are gathering to finalize the details in the coming days. Individual branches of the armed services would have a year to

Washington - Michelle Obama departs on Sunday for a six-day trip to Africa and Europe to advocate for the "Let Girls Learn" initiative, White House officials said. The stops in Liberia and Morocco will be recorded for a documentary by CNN Films, which is picking up the costs for two trip participants: actresses Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto, an Obama aide said Friday. The documentary will air in the fall, said Tina Tchen, the first lady´s chief of staff. Let Girls Learn is a U.S. government-wide effort to get the estimated 62 million uneducated girls overseas into classrooms. Poverty, cultural barriers, and forced marriage are among

A leading figure in the British push to exit the European Union says President Obama accidentally helped the Brexit cause. Nigel Farage on Friday said Obama´s calls for the United Kingdom to stay in the EU caused people to vote to leave. “Threatening people too much insults their intelligence,” the United Kingdom Independence Party head said. “A lot of people in Britain said, ‘How dare the American president come here and tell us what to do?’ ” Farage continued on Sirius XM’s “Breitbart News Daily,” citing Obama’s U.K. trip in April. “It backfired. We got an Obama-Brexit bounce, because people do not want
