That is the nice thing about a special counsel, he takes the wind out of all the blowhard´s sails. No more Chunkie and Naci demanding this or that.

The fight against Islamic terrorism will persist on the Fourth of July, but that does not mean U.S. service members deployed overseas will have to forego celebrating the birth of the United States on account of being in a war zone. Amid the unrelenting threat in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan posed by the likes of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and the Taliban, the celebrations for U.S. troops there will not feature the large barbecues and fireworks scattered throughout the United States. Nevertheless, American troops risking their lives to defend the United States and ensure their compatriots at home can freely

Among the big stories of the day: The Senators took a doubleheader from the Yankees at the Polo Grounds. The president took a sail on a yacht. Race riots raged in East St. Louis. Congress debated a tax bill but went on holiday before acting. Politicians gave speeches in various corners of the country with predictably patriotic rhetoric. And in Paris, American doughboys under commanding Gen. John J. Pershing made their first foray into global warfare, marching through the streets in a display that would end at the grave of the Marquis de Lafayette. For Washington and the rest of

The colonies had been in conflict with England for over a year in June of 1776. A Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia on June 7 of that year. Richard Henry Lee from Virginia offered up a resolution with these now famous words: “Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.” Lee’s words spurred the drafting of the Declaration of Independence.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ office crafted and published a video attacking Fox News commentators for mocking Sanders’ claims that the proposed Senate health care bill — which was recently shelved due to a lack of votes — would cause “thousands” of people to die.

House Democrats are on a mission to educate the American people about a little-known power of the 25th Amendment — the ousting of the president. Led by freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a group of growing Democratic co-signers has put forth a bill that could force President Donald Trump from office if he were found mentally or physically unfit. Although it was introduced in April, the bill has gained steam in the past week as Trump´s tweet storms have grown in ferocity.

Washington Post columnist David Ignatius said Monday that during his travels in Syria, rebel fighters there cheered any mention of President Donald Trump´s name. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," Ignatius prefaced his comments by warning that he would say something "sympathetic to Trump." It was only the second airing of the show since Trump touched off a firestorm with his tweets mocking Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. "As I traveled across Syria meeting with Syrian fighters who were trying to take down the regime of Bashar al-Assad, every time the name President Trump was mentioned, there were cheers from the audience," he

Some people simply cannot handle the fact that Donald Trump was elected president. One of those people is Donald Trump. Trump has shown himself intellectually and emotionally incapable of making the transition from minor entertainment figure to major political figure. He is in the strange position of being a B-list celebrity who is also the most famous man in the world. His recent Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe exemplifies that as much as it does the president’s other by-now-familiar pathologies, notably his strange psychological need to verbally abuse women in physical terms. Trump may have his

Within three decades people will no longer be having sex to procreate, a professor from Stanford University has said. Hank Greely, the director of Stanford’s Law School’s Center for Law and the Biosciences, believes the reproductive process will begin with parents choosing from a range of embryos created in a lab with their DNA. Although this can already take place, Mr Greely believes it will become far cheaper to do so and couples will opt for this method to prevent diseases. The process involves taking a female skin sample to create stem cells, which is then used to create eggs. These eggs are then fertilised with sperm cells,

A fifth of male fish are now transgender because of chemicals from the contraceptive pill being flushed down household drains, a study by has suggested. Male river fish are displaying feminised traits and even producing eggs, the study found. Some have reduced sperm quality and display less aggressive and competitive behaviour, which makes them less likely to breed successfully. The chemicals causing these effects include ingredients in the contraceptive pill, by-products of cleaning agents, plastics and cosmetics, according to the findings.

If there were two thing’s President Trump knew how to do well, it’s tweet and get under the skin of the folks at CNN. Well, he did both on Sunday, when he tweeted a rather juvenile clip of a fight he had with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon a long time ago, with the CNN logo placed over McMahon’s face. As would be expected, CNN’s ridiculous figure Brian Stelter lost his mind on Reliable Sources later that morning as he and his stacked liberal panel decried the tweet as fascist, a grave danger, and a threat to the people that work

A new online poll finds that Americans trust CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times more than President Trump, Axios reported Tuesday. But amid Trump’s ongoing war against the press, trust is largely split among partisan lines, with 89 percent of Republicans viewing Trump as more trustworthy than CNN while 91 percent of Democrats think the opposite. Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump; among independents, CNN wins by 15 points. Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN, escalating an ongoing war of rhetoric between

Former President Barack Obama seems to be feeling nostalgic for his old job, meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday for 40 minutes. The Korea Herald reported that Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship. The meeting came after Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference in Indonesia. There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord. “In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary

(Video) - Although President Donald Trump has pledged to donate his salary quarterly to charity, the Trump administration is yet to announce the recipient of his second-quarter paycheck. The quarter ended June 30. Trump followed through, at least in the first quarter, with his campaign promise not to take a salary by donating his first-quarter salary to the National Park Service. But Trump has talked a big game about donating to charity in the past and fallen short of his promises. The administration announced Trump’s donation of $78,333.32 to the National Park Service for upkeep of the nation’s battlefields April 3,
