American soldiers will lead the military parade on France´s Bastille Day on Friday, marching down the famous Champs-Elysées in Paris with both President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron in observance. Nearly 200 American troops assigned to units in Europe and the 1st Infantry Division based at Fort Riley, Kansas will partake in the ceremony to commemorate the centennial of the United States entering World War I, according to the Department of Defense. "France stood with us during the American Revolution and that strategic partnership endures today," said Army Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, commander of U.S. European Command. "On

It is fitting that troops from the 1st Infantry Division will be marching because It was troops of the 1st Division that marched through Paris on the way to the front in 1917.

Glad to see this.

France is owed a deep debt for the critical assistance from Lafayette, Rochambeau and De Grasse, without which we certainly would have not beaten the British - especially De Grasse preventing Cornwallis from being rescued from the Yorktown peninsula by the British Navy.

It was Lafayette, returned to the battlefield several months of recuperation from a wound, who initially trapped Cornwallis on the peninsula and managed to get Washington and Rochambeau´s much larger armies to close the trap before it was discovered how relatively weaker his forces were than Cornwallis´.

We paid large installments in 1917 and 1944, but, still, we would not be a free country if it were not for some great Frenchmen helping us in our time of dire need.

I have personally thanked a few French naval officers that I met, and will do it again if the opportunity presents itself.

President Trump´s sweep of the Rust Belt last November caught the Acela corridor off guard, inducing months of rumination from people with elite diplomas in coastal cities hoping to diagnose the Democratic Party´s decline in its historical strongholds. One would be hard pressed to find a congressional district more representative of this shift than the district of Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., which covers rural parts of central and northern Wisconsin. From 1969 until 2010, the district re-elected Democrat David Obey time after time to represent its interests in Washington. But a changing economy has hit the district hard, shuttering paper

During a press conference on Friday, Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) praised Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Susan Collins (R-ME) for their votes against the skinny Obamacare repeal and stated McCain’s vote showed the same courage he showed during his service in the Vietnam War. Schumer said that he and McCain “have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight, which we put together.

Treasury Department Ending
Ineffective Obama Retirement Program

The Treasury Department is ending an ineffective Obama program that promised to help millions of Americans save for retirement, the government announced Friday. Treasury announced the myRA program would be phased out, after costing taxpayers $70 million though few Americans used the program. Former president Barack Obama used his 2014 State of the Union address to launch the myRA program, with a promise to "help millions" to save for retirement. Two years later, only 20,000 had signed up. "The myRA program was created to help low to middle income earners start saving for retirement," said Jovita Carranza, U.S. Treasurer. "Unfortunately, there

President Trump lashed out at the senators who voted against repealing Obamacare early Friday morning, accusing them of letting the American people down and once again promising to let the law implode. The tweet came around an hour after the Senate voted down an amendment for a "skinny" repeal of Obamacare by a 51-49 margin. Three Republicans voted against the measure: Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine. All Democrats and independents voted against it too. "Three Republicans and 48 Democrats let American people down," the president tweeted. "As I said from the

A Turkish reporter admitted that he inaccurately quoted White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, who was reported to have lavished praise on Turkish President Recep Erdogan. A White House official told The Daily Caller Thursday that the quote in the Turkish newspaper AKSAM was “made up.” The reporter, Yavuz Atalay, admitted as much when contacted by TheDC. The article published Thursday claimed that Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, said that Erdogan “is making Turkey bigger again like US. We watch his efforts with appreciation.” The piece included a selfie with both Kushner and Atalay. “He [Atalay] approached Jared for a selfie

Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel of the Russia election interference probe presents an opportunity for the FBI to inspect the Democratic Party computers that U.S. intelligence concluded were penetrated by Kremlin-directed hackers, cybersecurity analysts say. The Democratic National Committee did not allow the FBI to physically inspect its machines, including servers. There is no public indication that any government agency has ever looked at the machines, prompting some former intelligence people to question the findings. Instead, the DNC — and thus the FBI — relied heavily on the conclusions of counterhacking firm CrowdStrike, which the Democrats invited in to

Thursday during his opening statement at the House Oversight Committee hearing on “Challenges to Freedom of Speech on College Campuses,” comedian Adam Carolla argued if there were more order on campus, then there would be less of a need for a law enforcement component to protect controversial speakers. Partial remarks as follows: We’re talking a lot about the kids, and I think they’re just that, kids. We are the adults.

On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) would not say whether he supports President Donald Trump’s ban on transgenders in the military, but remarked that he is waiting to see what the White House and Defense Department “produce” on the issue. At a Capitol Hill press conference, a reporter asked Ryan, “Do you agree with the president’s new policy banning all transgender individuals from serving in the military?” Speaker Ryan did not answer that question but said, “The concern here in the House was whether or not the military will be forced to pay for these surgical procedures.

As the unofficial town motto goes, ´Everybody´s somebody´ in Luckenbach. But in this tiny Texas Hill Country town there isn’t anybody. At least not full time. Despite the ‘Population 3’ sign, Luckenbach is actually population zero and is more of a near deserted cul-de-sac with a few disused buildings than an obvious tourist destination. The general store and dance hall in a clearing among the trees hint at a more prosperous past. It takes about five minutes to fully explore the entirety of the town – 10 minutes if you stop to get acquainted with Doc, Miss Kitty and Smokey,

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts’ chief executive apologized Thursday to members of the scouting community who were offended by the aggressive political rhetoric in President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the Scouts’ national jamboree. The apology came in a statement from Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, three days after Trump’s speech to nearly 40,000 scouts and adults gathered in West Virginia. Other U.S. presidents have delivered nonpolitical speeches at past jamborees. To the dismay of many parents and former scouts, Trump, a Republican, promoted his political agenda and derided his rivals, inducing some of the scouts in attendance to
