Drudge Poll: Three-Quarters Say Trump Should Fire Mueller

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:50:28 GMT

Autoplay: On | Off More than three-quarters of people who answered a poll on the conservative Drudge Report site said that President Trump should fire special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller is currently investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Moscow. The online poll, which was posted on the site on Saturday, had surveyed fewer than 500,000 people on Sunday. The poll comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe over the findings of an internal review that said he provided unauthorized information to the press and was...

Denver detective accuses Denver City Council of protecting the Mayor, joining cover-up

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:48:49 GMT

DENVER – Nearly three weeks after Detective Leslie Branch-Wise broke her silence accusing Denver Mayor Michael Hancock of sexual harassment, calls for an investigation have gone nowhere. Branch-Wise is accusing Denver City Council of protecting the mayor and sweeping the issue under the rug.

Trump's pick for secretary of state reportedly set up 'kill teams' of commandos at the CIA

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:47:50 GMT

As director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo reportedly set up small teams of commandos to kill suspected terrorists, according to a report by BuzzFeed. Pompeo, who has said the agency would become more "aggressive" and "vicious," pushed for such lethal operations after he took over the agency in January 2017. The military and the National Security Council were initially resistant to the plan, according to BuzzFeed, but the proposal was eventually approved. "They are getting people on targeting lists," one of the sources told BuzzFeed. "Small teams are locating and killing bad guys. That's what we are doing." "It's a...

The Latest: British woman killed fighting with Syrian Kurds

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:42:37 GMT

She is the first foreign national to die in the battle for Afrin. She is also the first British female fighter and the eighth Briton to die fighting alongside the Kurdish militia in Syria. The Press Association says Campbell was 26 years old from Lewes, East Sussex. Macer Gifford, a Briton who travelled with Campbell, said they arrived last May to eastern Syria, where they joined the U.S-backed Kurdish militia to fight against Islamic State militants. Gifford returned home after the fall of the city of Raqqa last summer. Gifford told The Associated Press via Twitter that Campbell, an animal...

Larry Kudlow Is an Excellent Choice for American Innovation and Growth

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:36:45 GMT

Last week President Trump announced that he would be appointing Larry Kudlow, a longtime CNBC staple and pro-free-market evangelist with vast private sector and governmental experience to back up his opinions, as his new National Economic Council (NEC) Director.Kudlow, who brings decades of varied work on Wall Street, in the media, and previously in the Reagan White House, will replace former Goldman Sachs Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn, who announced his intention to resign amid being unable to dissuade the President from implementing his recent steel and aluminum tariffs.While not one of the most publicly visible roles in a President’s administration, nonetheless...

Official Washington flocking to Doomsday Camps

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:29:29 GMT

Official Washington flocking to Doomsday Camps by Paul Bedard | March 19, 2018 08:16 AM A building network of backwoods doomsday camps around the country are pulling in members from affluent areas and even Washington national security officials as the threats grow from nuclear war, an EMP or virus attack. Called Fortitude Ranch, the outposts promise protection and a year’s supply of food for those unable to build their own bunker. What’s more, until a crisis strikes, they are being used for prepper training and vacations. “We’re seeing members from all the three letter agencies,” said Fortitude creator Drew Miller,...

Tripwire may have triggered latest explosion in Austin that injured 2 men: Officials

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:24:38 GMT

The three previous bombings this month, over an 11-day period, killed two people and injured two others. Those three bombs were left as packages on doorsteps, while Manley said Sunday's device was different: It was placed on the side of the road. The victims were injured either while riding their bikes, or pushing them, Manley said. "It is very possible that this device was activated by someone handling or triggering a tripwire," Manley said, adding that the mechanism used to set off the explosion remained "unconfirmed."

Climate change triggering ‘flying rivers, rain bombs’, Gore warns

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:22:53 GMT

Climate change triggering ‘flying rivers, rain bombs’, Gore warns Former US vice-president tells GESF delegates in Dubai large areas in Middle East could become uninhabitable Dubai: Bizarre weather such as “flying rivers” and “rain bombs” are just some of the recent effects of climate change, warned former US vice-president Al Gore at the Global Education and Skills Forum (GESF) in Dubai on Sunday. Gore, who is the founder and chairman of The Climate Reality Project, a non-profit establishment “devoted to solving the climate crisis”, told GESF delegates global weather is becoming “extreme” and “disruptive”, mainly because of global warming. Gore...

How Social Media Eroded the Left’s Media Dominance

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:16:56 GMT

While there has been considerable, and warranted, criticism lately about censorship of conservatives by the big tech companies, let’s not forget that the emergence of social media cracked the left’s media dominance. People moved from reading print newspapers and magazines to congregating on Facebook and Twitter. They moved from network television to YouTube videos and streaming news services. Formerly dominant left-leaning newspapers and magazines like The Denver Post and Newsweek are shrinking and falling apart. The Denver Post cut almost 90 percent of its journalists within the past decade. Newsweek recently laid off multiple editors and staffers, fell behind in its...

Trump’s Losing Trade Gambit: The president had to back off new tariffs on Mexico and Canada

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:12:39 GMT

President Trump’s practice of staking out extreme positions on trade as a negotiating tactic is a sign of his brilliance. Or so we’re told. But that theory took on water last week, when Mr. Trump had to backtrack on a promise to hit Mexico and Canada with a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum, without any concessions from either Mexico City or Ottawa. To understand the change of heart, take the list of products slated for a new Trump tariff on steel and total the value of those same products exported by U.S. producers. You will...

Sumo: Kakuryu's great escape keeps Spring tourney tied

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:11:19 GMT

OSAKA (Kyodo) -- Yokozuna Kakuryu's awkward win kept him atop the standings with Brazilian maegashira Kaisei on Monday, the ninth day of the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament. The yokozuna was nearly blown out of the ring by a powerful but uncontrolled final charge from No. 4 maegashira Shodai (5-4), but Kakuryu made his escape tip-toeing along the ring's straw-bale border as Shodai thundered out. The Mongolian could barely control his smile after snatching victory from defeat. He had opened brightly, but Shodai repulsed his charge and seized the initiative. Everything was going the youngster's way until his failed attempt to...

Los Gatos: Teacher defends lowering student’s grade after school walkout

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:09:47 GMT

Saying he was defending the Constitution, a Los Gatos teacher on Sunday stood firmly behind his decision to give a student a failing grade on a quiz after she left class to join a walkout aimed at bringing attention to gun violence last week.

The Penn Law School Mob Scores a Victory

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:05:30 GMT

The campus mob at the University of Pennsylvania Law School has scored a hit. Prof. Amy Wax will no longer be allowed to teach required first-year courses, the school’s dean announced last week. Now the leader of Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania wants Ms. Wax’s scalp. According to a weekend newspaper report, if she isn’t fired within a week, “he plans to make things on the West Philadelphia campus very uncomfortable.” Ms. Wax’s sin this time was to discuss publicly the negative consequences of affirmative action. Her punishment underscores again the dangers of speaking uncomfortable truths in a university setting. The...

Must We All Behave Like Children?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:01:45 GMT

One day the right is mocking Hillary Clinton for taking a fall while walking down a flight of outdoor steps in India. The next day the left is mocking the president’s weight. Must we be so infantile in our criticisms? Aren’t there enough issues of substance for us to discuss and debate? I don’t want to name names here, but suffice it to say that some major voices on the right seemed to enjoy watching Mrs. Clinton’s struggles in India. After all, she’s the fading icon of the left, the very image of failed policies and ideas. Mocking is her...

Cuomo Lets Slip on McCabe Firing: FBI IG an Obama Appointee

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:51:58 GMT

It came at the very end of a long segment on the firing of Andrew McCabe. Maybe it should have come at the beginning . . . On CNN this morning, after a protracted discussion of the firing of Andrew McCabe, and just before going to break, Chris Cuomo let slip what might be the seminal fact in this matter. As Cuomo put it: “The best thing going for the President on this one is that the IG was an Obama appointee, and this was his report.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

Now Is the Time for Smaller Government

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:45:11 GMT

The March unemployment report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that, in February, the unemployment rate remained 4.1 percent for the fifth consecutive month and the number of unemployed persons was essentially unchanged at 6.7 million. Without question, the economy is humming right along, and America is close to, if not at, full employment. It’s taken longer than many economists expected. President Obama certainly wanted full employment, but he wanted his regulatory agenda more. President Trump has done what he can to release the Obama brake, and the economy has quickly responded, averaging almost 3% GDP growth over...

It's Time to Choose: Prosperity or Crazy

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:20:01 GMT

I'm pro choice. I'm not talking about abortion. What I mean is sane people have to make a choice. There are two clear choices. Prosperity and a booming U.S. economy. Or pure freaking crazy.It's up to American voters to choose. On one hand…Small business optimism is the highest in almost four decades (since the great Ronald Reagan) and the 2nd highest in history. The single biggest problem for business owners under President Trump…their only complaint nowadays…is finding decent quality employees. There are now more jobs than quality employees to fill them. That's a pretty good problem to have! Manufacturing is...

Rubio: McCabe Should Have Been Allowed to Retire

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:19:22 GMT

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he disagreed with how former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired by Attorney General Sessions two days before he was eligible for his pension. Rubio said, “I don’t like the way it happened. He should have been allowed to finish through the weekend.”

Congressman suggests Second Amendment as means of opposing Trump

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:08:18 GMT

A Democratic congressman from Long Island implied that Americans should grab weapons and oppose President Trump by force, if the commander-in-chief doesn’t follow the Constitution. Rep. Tom Suozzi made the remark to constituents at a town hall last week, saying that folks opposed to Trump might resort to the “Second Amendment.” “It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi said in a newly released video of the March 12 talk in Huntington. “This is where the Second Amendment comes in quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would...

The Deep State's Love Affair With Andrew McCabe

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:52:38 GMT

Recently fired former Deputy F.B.I Director Andrew McCabe has been drawing lots of support of late - from all the wrong places. Like a “We are the world” rendition sung by a hooded, hand-holding cabal of Satanists, ‘Deep State’ operatives, politicians, and media figures all united over the weekend to support the man who, since he WAS fired by the Trump administration after all, must surely merit the designation as the latest and greatest ‘chosen’ hero of the #Resistance.Nevermind the fact that McCabe was a partisan hack and a habitual leaker, this career government employee’s thinly veiled agenda to undermine...

Sessions makes his move

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:48:12 GMT

Sessions is the quintessential Eagle Scout. He will follow the rules down to the last subclause and will not make his move until every "t" has been crossed and every "i" dotted. We saw the first results of this approach last Friday – in dealing with Andrew McCabe, this century's prime example of a "cookie full of arsenic." Sessions waited until the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility (which is run by Assistant Director Candice Will, who was appointed by Robert Mueller, of all people) recommended that McCabe be fired. He then had McCabe officially informed beforehand, following established procedure to...

'Chappaquiddick: Power, Privilege, and the Ted Kennedy Cover-up' Foreword Excerpt

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:42:15 GMT

This excerpted foreword by Howie Carr has been republished with permission from Chappaquiddick: Power, Privilege, and the Ted Kennedy Cover-up by the late Leo Damore (Regnery Publishing, 2018).If anyone ever truly deserved a Profiles in Courage Award, it was the late Leo Damore, the author of this book.Of course, the awards are handed out by the Kennedy family, and they are all about, not courage, but Political Correctness. But no one can dispute the fact that Damore put himself and his career on the line to write this book, and that one way or another, he paid the ultimate price—as a...

Jim Bridenstine's NASA nomination remains in serious jeopardy (payback for opposing Boehner!)

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:37:56 GMT

U.S. Rep. Jim Bridenstine's nomination to lead NASA remains in serious jeopardy and his colleagues are suggesting President Donald Trump should soon nominate someone else. Bridenstine, a Tulsa Republican who was twice nominated to head the nation's space agency, has continued to draw the opposition of all Senate Democrats, independents and one Republican. A fellow Tulsa Republican, Sen. Jim Inhofe, has tried unsuccessfully to persuade that Republican senator to back Bridenstine. “I have talked to Marco — Senator Marco Rubio — and he doesn't like Jim Bridenstine,” Inhofe said of the junior senator from Florida. Florida's senators have effectively blocked...

Senators suspect Comey lied and plotted to double-cross Trump, seek second special counsel

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 11:30:29 GMT

A plan of action for how a second special counsel can investigate the FBI and Justice Department is spelled out in a point-by-point letter submitted by two Republican senators. They specifically want to know whether former FBI Director James B. Comey lied to them and had a plan to double-cross President Trump. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They and two other Republicans want a special counsel with the powers of the Trump-Russia probe’s Robert Mueller to investigate suspected Justice...
