The University of California, Berkeley is likely to once again be the site of brutal protests on Thursday as questions arise about whether the city’s mayor has ties to an extremist group sparking violence. Ann Coulter has vowed to move ahead with a planned appearance at the university, despite Berkeley trying to reschedule her speech over security concerns. Law enforcement sources told Fox News that regardless of whether the conservative firebrand shows up, there is a “99 percent” chance that the college will erupt in violence. The sources are helping the Berkeley Police Department prepare for what is now seen as an
I read that the so-called ´Anti-Fascists´ (there´s a laugh), the true destructive rioters, are mad that the Berkeley Police didn´t do enough to protect them from those mean old Trump supporters, so now, they are going to start arming up because they didn´t like the beating they got the last time.
The Left has lost its mind and this is going to spin way out of control!
I´m disappointed that the WH seems oblivious to the rioting in Berkeley. This would be a perfect time to stand up for the 1st Amendment with a show of force. Americans want law and order, not anarchy in the streets. Why is the Trump Administration keeping quiet on this?
PORT ST. LUCIE — Tim Tebow has been playing with the St. Lucie Mets for less than a month — a very small sample size to analyze a baseball player — but the early returns are impressive. After hitting .220/.311/.336 in 64 games at low-A Columbia, the 29-year-old former Heisman Trophy winner is batting .306/.390/.514 with the Mets heading into Thursday night’s game against the Jupiter Hammerheads. Typically, it’s strange to see any minor leaguer hit almost 90 percentage points higher against a higher level of competition. But, as is the case with many Tebow-related situations, there’s more to it than meets
WASHINGTON - The White House said Thursday it had withdrawn or removed from active consideration more than 800 proposed regulations that were never finalized during the Obama administration as it works to shrink the federal government´s regulatory footprint. In a report, the Trump administration said it had withdrawn 469 planned regulatory actions that had been part of the Obama administration´s regulatory agenda published last fall. Officials also reconsidered 391 active regulatory proceedings actions by reclassifying them as long-term or inactive "allowing for further careful review," the White House said. The administration´s move to eliminate regulations makes good on a much-repeated Trump campaign
WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions deflected questions on Thursday about whether he can stay in his post after President Trump expressed a lack of confidence in Mr. Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Mr. Sessions said he loves his job and will continue to serve “as long as that is appropriate.” Asked whether he is considering resigning, Mr. Sessions said he and his colleagues intend to continue to do their jobs. “We are serving right now. The work we are doing today is the kind of work that we intend to continue,” he said during a news conference announcing what
The public learned on March 10, 2015 that Hillary Clinton had more than 60,000 emails on her private email system, and that she had turned over "about half" of them to the State Department and destroyed the rest, which she said were "personal" and "not in any way related" to her work as Secretary of State. The public learned later the lengths to which Clinton went to make sure the "personal" emails were completely and permanently deleted. Her team used a commercial-strength program called BleachBit to erase all traces of the emails, and they used hammers to physically destroy mobile devices
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has become President Donald Trump´s fiercest congressional critic. In eight years, Obama never had a Republican nemesis the likes of Waters, who recently said, "I´m taking the gloves off." Seventeen years ago, I wrote Waters a letter. She never answered. It read, in part: Congresswoman Waters, Your power in America, and especially in the black community, is substantial. I honestly, and sincerely, urge you to rethink your positions on several issues. Despite my acknowledged harsh criticisms of you, I never once attacked you personally. I said, on many occasions: "I don´t question her heart, but I question her
An award-winning journalist who broke the story of the group of Jewish women ejected from an LGBTQ march in Chicago last month has been reassigned to non-journalistic duties at the paper which ran the original report, the Windy City Times. Gretchen Rachel Hammond — whose June 24 story caused a national storm after she detailed how three women flying Jewish Pride flags embossed with the Star of David were instructed to leave the gathering by organizers from the Dyke March Collective — confirmed to The Algemeiner on Monday that while she was still employed by the paper, she was not presently
Donald Trump is less than six months into his presidency, yet one of the organizing principles of his political operation is already becoming clear: Payback. In private, Trump has spoken of spending $10 million out of his own pocket to defeat an incumbent senator of his own party, Jeff Flake of Arizona, according to two sources familiar with the conversation last fall. More recently, the president celebrated the attacks orchestrated by a White House-sanctioned outside group against another Republican senator, Dean Heller of Nevada, who has also been openly critical of him. Fear of Trump reprisals has led one Republican congresswoman, Martha
President Donald Trump´s face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin stretched on for two hours – and was quickly followed by news the U.S. and Russia had reached an agreement on a cease fire in Syria. The cease fire is to take effect Sunday at noon in Damascus, the Associated Press reported, without adding further details. Israel and Jordan were reported to be part of the agreement. The sign of possible progress in Syria – where Russia is the primary backer of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad – came more than two hours after Trump said it was ´an honor´ to
U.S. President Donald Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday at the G20 meeting, the two world leaders greeting each other with a handshake ahead of their formal meeting in the afternoon. The White House is briefing that there is “no fixed agenda” for the meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin, though the Kremlin said that this will be a “fully fledged seated meeting”, expected to last 15 minutes. The president is also due to meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico on Friday and British Prime Minister Theresa May on Saturday at the gathering hosted by German Chancellor Angela
Wow. I listened to a lot of Barack Obama’s speeches, with all the empty platitudes about how we all can get along, even as the planet caught fire and burned while he sat back and dithered. I don’t remember any of Obama’s speeches approaching the profundity and understanding of the world that President Trump displayed in remarks delivered today, appropriately enough, in Warsaw, Poland. For those who think Trump is a buffoon, if they watched today, they witnessed a president with a rare understanding that ideas and principles matter, far more than bombs or feel-good false assurances. Poland is a
It’s a funny thing how none of President Trump’s critics and haters, particularly the putatively smart observers in the press, ever get what he is doing. He’s a step ahead of them and he’s outwitting them, even as they preach to him from what they think is a perch at least twenty IQ points above his. But as Trump said Saturday night at a gathering of veterans in Washington, the media are in fact looking up to him as he stands upon on the presidential bully pulpit. “I’m president and they’re not,” he noted. There is a method to President Trump’s madness,
Dressed in a pinstriped suit and blue tie, with New York’s Plaza Hotel framed over his left shoulder and Central Park over his right, the president’s son Eric Trump touts his charity’s 2014 golf invitational in a Trump Organization video. “It’s really kind of the pinnacle for the Eric Trump Foundation,” he says. “We just raised an inordinate amount of money, and it all obviously goes to the children of St. Jude.” The charity did in fact raise a serious amount of money at the golf event that year, some $1.8 million, according to federal tax filings, while maintaining an impressive
WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff. (Snip) The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge. It was not
“We cannot tolerate this any longer,” said the former CIA Director at the head of the table. “We have to forcibly retake the government from Donald Trump. It is the only way save our democracy.” His audience nodded solemnly. The men and women gathered at that secret February meeting on the top floor of 241 West 41st Street, the New York Times building, were Democrat politicians, media figures, retired and active members of the federal security bureaucracy, and several Establishment Republicans, and they were at wit’s end. There simply was no other choice. Donald Trump must be replaced, and it no
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had a long run. At 77 — and a multi-millionaire — the California Democrat could ride off into the sunset. But the former Speaker of the House said Sunday she´s not going anywhere. “Self-promotion is a terrible thing, but somebody has to do it,” Pelosi said on Fox News Sunday. “I am a master legislator. I know the budget to the nth degree.” There have been rumblings that Democrats want to replace its aging leadership before the 2018 mid-term elections. Right now, there is no leader of the party, with Hillary Clinton gone and
On Thursday, political pollster and one-time aide to former President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, revealed Barack Obama, along with a group of aides, have set up a ‘secret war room’ tasked with stopping President Trump and his agenda. Operating just two miles away from the White House, the war room holds two conference calls daily to hash out media talking points, with a particular focus on health care. Calls are held 8:30 am est and 9:45 am est. Kathleen Sebelius, former Health and Human Services head and Andrew Slavitt, former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are
It’s been an utter disaster for Megyn Kelly since kicking things off at NBC. The New York Post reports Kelly’s Sunday show has been pulled two episodes sooner than scheduled due to poor ratings. Ouch. Breitbart News reports: Last week, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly set another viewership low with just 2.71 million total viewers. In the last three weeks, her show has failed to beat the years-old Dateline rerun the network ran in her show’s time slot when Kelly took a week off during the Fourth of July holiday weekend. According to the New York Post, “Kelly’s ratings-challenged Sunday show was
President Trump should not be blamed for what the Republican Party has become, said Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who believes the party´s problems began during the Bush administration. "I´m not blaming this lack of principle, or where we are, solely on the president. He´s more the culmination of it," Flake told NPR in an interview.
Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted on Monday of defying a court order to stop rounding up immigrants, and he may face jail time — another rebuke for a once-popular politician who was voted out of office last year. In 24 years as sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., Mr. Arpaio built a national reputation for harsh conditions in his county jail, and for his campaign against undocumented immigrants; his deputies detained people solely based on a belief that they were in the country illegally, and then turn them over to immigration authorities for deportation. In December 2011, a federal district judge hearing a racial
On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home
Imran Awan, a congressional aide arrested by the FBI after wiring $300,000 to Pakistan and misrepresenting the purpose, had previously wired money to the Muslim country and was frantically liquidating multiple real estate properties on the day he was arrested, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Imran’s real estate properties provide a source of money that could be sent directly to Pakistan when two upcoming home sales close. Prosecutors have since filed paperwork saying they fear “the dissipation of the proceeds of the fraud and destruction of evidence in other locations.” Imran was arrested July 24 — four months
Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake claimed his party is in “denial” about President Donald Trump in a recently released excerpt from his upcoming book. (Snip) “I’ve been sympathetic to this impulse to denial, as one doesn’t ever want to believe that the government of the United States has been made dysfunctional at the highest levels, especially by the actions of one’s own party,” Flake continued.”… For a conservative, that’s an awfully bitter pill to swallow.” One of the few ways to stop a way-ward president is through Congress, Flake said, before calling on his fellow congressmen to acts as the “checks
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump was promising to destroy a vile criminal cartel.Unfortunately, not his own.But one could be forgiven for mistaking the vicious tactics of the MS-13 gang, as described by the president in a Long Island speech on Friday, with those of the Trump White House.“They don’t like shooting people because it’s too quick, it’s too fast,” Trump said, adding: “They like to knife them and cut them, and let them die slowly because that way, it’s more painful, and they enjoy watching that much more. These are animals.” The president could have been describing his own sadistic assault on
Progressives, crazed with identifying new forms of oppression attached to the currently fashionable catchword “privilege,” have finally embraced the stupid as a victim class. Hey, let´s celebrate stupidity! Just ponder for a moment all the potential grand marshalls for the inevitable Supidity Day Parade in New York City, once the stupid are organized into a grievance-powered pressure group. And where else, but at a university, a temple of higher learning? In this case, one funded by taxpayers. This is from a genuine column in the student newspaper of the University of Iowa. A student suddenly has discovered that being smart is
