Clinger would first be nominated to be a member of the FDIC, and then to replace current chairman, Martin Gruenberg, when his five-year term runs out in November. As chair of the FDIC, Clinger would be responsible for regulating banks to prevent failures that

I have never heard of him, but he used to work for the wonderful conservative Rep. Jeb Hensarling. That is a good thing!

A New Jersey Democratic strategist has refused to apologize for tweeting #HuntRepublicans and #HuntRepublicanCongressmen in the aftermath of Wednesday’s assassination attempt of Republican members of Congress. According to MyCentralJersey.com, Jim Devine has been involved in politics for 35 years and previously worked on campaigns for New Jersey Assemblyman James Kennedy and state Sen. Raymond Lesniak. Just hours after a leftist gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, a congressional staffer, a lobbyist, and two Capitol police officers, Mr. Devine took to Twitter to smear the Republican congressman. “In 2002, Scalise was

CHRISTIANA, Tenn. — Pruitt Road residents in this rural Rutherford County town were on guard when fugitives Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe came their way on the third day of the manhunt for the accused killers. Bordering hundreds of acres of lush forest, the two-lane road winds through the countryside. Wild turkeys wander the road, and dogs run free on the rolling hills. Aware of a freeway chase and gunfire on nearby Interstate 24, Patrick Hale said he loaded every gun in his house after neighbors called to say that two fugitives were possibly headed his way. One minute later, he saw the

Seven sailors are missing after the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a merchant vessel just southwest of Yokosuka, Japan, according to Japan´s NHK news network. The Fitzgerald´s crew is fighting to save the ship, according to three sources with knowledge of internal reports. The commanding officer was incapacitated in the accident and the executive officer is in command. The Fitzgerald suffered extensive damage beneath the waterline. Initial reports suggested that Auxiliary Machine Room 1 and two crew berthings were completely flooded. Because the collision occurred around 2:30 a.m., most crew members not standing watch would be in the berthing.

Update: Subsequent to Judicial Watch reporting this incident Border Patrol management felt compelled to serve a warrant on the “Samaritan camp,” which agents had been waiting for three days to obtain. Despite President Trump’s pledge to tighten border security Border Patrol agents in one of the nation’s busiest sectors for illegal immigrants and drugs were ordered this week to stand back after a surveillance camera recorded a group entering the U.S. from Mexico, federal law enforcement sources told Judicial Watch.

One of the terrorists who carried out the deadly London Bridge attack in England this month fought in an affiliate of Senator John McCain’s beloved Free Syrian Army (FSA) in Libya, supporting the U.S.-backed effort to topple Muammar Gaddafi. His name is Rachid Redouane and, after fighting in the Libyan revolution with the Tripoli-based group Liwa al Ummah, he joined a militia that deployed jihadist fighters to Syria. The unit fought alongside Al-Qaeda extremists in Syria, according to a British newspaper story that says Redouane’s plea for asylum in the United Kingdom was rejected in 2009 though he continued living

Lawyers frequently say that “you can indict a ham sandwich.” Since grand juries only hear the prosecution side of the case, you are virtually assured of a true bill. Unfortunately, this also applies to special counsels and special prosecutors. (Snip) Mueller folded like a cheap suitcase in 2012 when Muslim subject-matter experts demanded the FBI purge thousands of pages in training manuals. They were allowed to remove any references to Islam that at they found offensive. Words and phrases that included the words "jihad," "radical Muslim," etc. were deleted. This action created a politically correct version of the FBI counterterrorism

WASHINGTON – In reaction to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) urged members of Congress to think about “sharing prosperity” to the “have-nots” instead of keeping the wealth to themselves and their friends. Johnson also said lawmakers and the general public need to act more like human beings and less like “animals” when they debate public policy issues. The man who shot Scalise in Alexandria, Va., on Wednesday while GOP members of Congress were practicing for tonight’s annual charity baseball game was identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, a Bernie Sanders presidential campaign volunteer

More surgical procedures are anticipated.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) ripped President Trump for his criticism of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday, saying that if Trump were to try to fire Rosenstein and special counsel Robert Mueller, Congress would “unite to stop him.” "It has become clear that President Trump believes that he has the power to fire anyone in government he chooses and for any reason, including special counsel Robert Mueller,” the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said in a statement. “That is not how the rule of law works, and Congress will not allow the President to so egregiously overstep

Mediaite has learned that a producer recently resigned form a Fox News program citing plans to join O’Reilly in a new online video project that is soon to launch.

We should all hope not. Democrats may not have gotten everything they wanted out of a series of recent televised Senate Intelligence Committee hearings that ostensibly concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election. But as the party of the ‘resistance’ shifted its focus from alleged collusion between Moscow and Republicans to President Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice, the hearings also produced a new heroine for the anti-Trump Left. Senator Kamala Harris emerged from confrontations with the three national intelligence chiefs and Attorney General Jeff Sessions with her reputation enhanced. Her manner of attack was praised and she was acclaimed as

President Trump resurrected one of his most brutal and repeated attacks from the 2016 campaign, blasting ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton less than 24 hours after calling for national unity after the congressional baseball shooting. Trump slammed his former political rival in a series of tweets Thursday afternoon. ´Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ´bleached´ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?´ Trump asked, combining his attacks on Clinton with gripes about the evolving Russia investigation.

As Fox News moves further into the post–Roger Ailes era, the network is shedding one of its most iconic elements. According to network executives, Fox News has abandoned the marketing slogan “Fair & Balanced.” The decision was made last August after Ailes’s ouster by Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy, because the phrase had “been mocked,” one insider said. Another executive explained that the tagline was “too closely associated with Roger.” Fox executives have been instructed by management to market the network by its other tagline: “Most Watched. Most Trusted.” It is hard to overstate the significance of what shedding “Fair

The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller. Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S. Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar. But while the survey has attracted snorts and jeers from some corners — “um, guys, [milk] comes from cows — and not just the brown kind,” snarked Food & Wine — the most surprising thing about this figure may

According to a Washington Post report, based on two more unnamed “officials”, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Donald Trump for ‘obstruction of justice’ presumably based on the firing of FBI Director James Comey. This report/outcome is not unexpected as it would be part of Mueller’s investigative duty to follow-up on any assertions made in this regard regardless of merit.(Washington Post) […] Trump had received private assurances from former FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing. Five people briefed on the requests, who spoke on

She then listed out a series of examples of harsh political rhetoric from the right. "We have a president who says, ´I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and

LANCASTER, N.Y.- At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold - using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by
