Six White House staffers were marched out of the building on Thursday after they failed national security background checks. Politico reported that the unlucky half-dozen included one who was the president´s director of scheduling. Caroline Wiles is also the daughter of Susan Wiles, a former chief of staff to Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the Trump campaign´s director in Florida. Politico reported that Wiles has told friends she will be reassigned to a job in the Treasury Department. It´s unknown who the other five dismissed aides are. One White House source told DailyMail.com it´s common knowledge that two of them

Good! Do everything democRats are going to do, just do it first! If you´re hiding something it will be found sooner or later. Find it first to eliminate liabilities later on down the road.

No kidding #2! There was none of this breathless reporting over every single thing that happened in the Obama regime. How many of them were marched out for failed national security tests? They were probably kept by Obama because to reject them would have been offensive, or racist, or whatever choice of the day.

Did they, #2? Seems to my somewhat iffy memory that many of them didn´t, but nothing was done about it. And remember when cabinet nominee after nominee turned out to be a tax dodger, and only a couple of them were disqualified for it?

The enemedia never pressed those scandals more than one cycle of the news, and then it was on to other stories.... oh, look! A squirrel!

This is very typical of what happens in trying to fill federal jobs at every level. People are selected for the jobs and then the background check comes back. Something as benign as credit problems or the kind of tax disputes that result from divorces can scupper a federal secretarial or engineering job. It happens every day. I´m sure the same thing happened many times in the Obama White House but was not reported by the slavering, rabid media. Nothing to see here, move along.

As someone who went through a TS/SCI background check, if you had something in your past you admitted to it and YOU DIDN´T LIE about it.

If you lie about past drug use in college, they will find out and disqualify you. It is not about whether you smoked dope or did a line at a frat party. It is whether you will be truthful.

I guess people´s memory are not what they used to be. Back when Billy Jeff Clinton, or as I call him, the Hillbilly Whorehopper, back when over half his nominations and hires could not pass drug screening, he changed hiring practices and hired all of them under some other classification that did not require any urine, hair, or blood samples. Creepozoids all.

By definition, the President has a security clearance. He also has the prerogative of overriding the decision that someone is a security risk. Along with Obama, I doubt Bill Clinton could have passed a security investigation.

I don´t believe the POTUS is required to take or pass this security screening. All other White House positions require passing the background check. I suppose family members not in official positions need not take the test, else Mooch, Malia & Grandma might have failed.

AT LEAST 28 people have been injured after a truck plowed through pedestrians in New Orleans. The crowd was watching the Krewe of Endymion parade – one of the many parades to take place in New Orleans around Mardi Gras – in the mid-city section of New Orleans when the incident took place. 21 of the injured have been rushed to seven different hospitals across the area – including five who are in critical condition. 28 people in total were injured in the incident including a three-year-old child. A female police officer, who witnesses claim was pinned under the truck,

Self-proclaimed "witches" together with singer Lana Del Rey, stood together at midnight on Friday night outside Trump Tower in New York to "cast a spell" on US President Donald Trump under a crescent moon. Witches from around the country joined the ritual from afar. The "spell" is intended to remove Trump from office and to "bind the hands" of both Trump and those who support and aid him. Subsequent "witch" gatherings will be held on March 26, April 24, and May 29. The gathering announced they were "hexing" Trump, and called on spirits to "bind" him. The "witches" also posted

As U.S. Sen. Tim Scott met with his constituents in North Charleston on Saturday morning, the people demanded to be heard. For the 200 who secured a seat in the Charleston County Council Chambers, having their questions read aloud by Scott did not stop them from shouting follow-up questions during the 2½-hour event. For the 100 people who sat watching a live video feed in an overflow room downstairs, they could not hear the interruptions happening upstairs. Only the South Carolina Republican had a microphone. Making it even more difficult for the overflow crowd to hear from Scott was the commotion happening outside,

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April for President Donald Trump´s proposed border wall with Mexico, signaling that he is aggressively pursuing plans to erect "a great wall" along the 2,000-mile border. The agency said it will request bids on or around March 6 and that companies would have to submit "concept papers" to design and build prototypes by March 10, according to FedBizOpps.gov, a website for federal contractors. The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20, and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by March 24. The president

Franz and his estranged brother must reunite to sell off dad´s possessions.

There´s a name for a government that bars media outlets it views as unsympathetic from access to its workings. It´s not "democracy." Just ask White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, as someone did in December, shortly before Spicer accepted his current post as President Donald Trump´s proselytizer-in-chief. During the campaign, Trump had revoked the credentials of reputable outlets media outlets at will, sometimes for weeks on end. Asked whether the White House would continue that practice, Spicer scoffed at the notion: "Look, there´s a big difference between a campaign where it is a private venue using private funds and a government entity," he said.

The number of migrants claiming refugee status at the Canadian-US border rose to over 7,000 last year, up from 4,300 in the previous year.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.

WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients

Pope Francis continues to argue for two interrelated points that, while seemingly humane, compromise Western nations and expose their citizens to danger. He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.” Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not

In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn´t ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That´s what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women´s issues" and "women´s difficulties." Trump didn´t specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

Tonight is the big night: all across the country, witches will gather to light candles and mutter incantations in hopes of evicting President Trump from the White House: "Men and women from around the world are planning to gather and cast a spell at midnight that will stop President Trump from doing harm while also possibly banishing him from office." (Snip) The idea is that these witchcraft events will continue until Trump is “driven from office.” There is a chant, too. It begins: Hear me, oh spirits / Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air / Heavenly hosts / Demons of the infernal

Milo Yiannopoulos is neither a free speech martyr nor a conservative. Rather, he is a flamboyant and provocative troll. Ross Douthat accurately describes him this way: [He is] a gay cross-dressing Catholic part-Jewish Brit who likes to boast about his sexual appetite, favors "ironic" racial and misogynist humor, and not occasionally describes the president of the United States as “Daddy.” Daily Beast media columnist Lloyd Grove views him as: ... [an] embattled Donald Trump groupie and alt-right provocateur -- who usually baits African Americans, Jews, women, transgender people, and his fellow gay men at his various speaking engagements in a merry tone of

(Video) - Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really -- but that´s not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. "It´s totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it´s possible. Who cares that he´s not French? He´s Barack Obama," one of the campaign organizers told CNN. They´ve launched a website and they put up 500 posters of Obama around Paris last weekend, said the organizer. He asked to be identified only as Antoine. They're hoping to get 1 million people to sign a petition urging Obama to
