    In fairness to Trump, he heard that directly from China’s president (or so he says). What was he supposed to do, be skeptical of Chinese nationalist propaganda?If you can’t trust Xi Jinping to shoot straight with you about a western-allied country within China’s sphere of influence, who can you trust? In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, Trump said Xi told him during a recent summit that “Korea actually used to be a part of China.” The comments sparked outrage in Seoul and became an issue in South Korea’s presidential race, prompting the foreign ministry to...

    A financial analyst who correctly forecasted the election of President Donald Trump now believes far-right candidate Marine Le Pen will emerge victorious in France. "Le Pen's momentum is a slow-moving reaction against the men of Davos -- as we have seen with Brexit and Trump -- but markets don’t want to believe it," Charles Gave told Bloomberg News. Gave, founder of Hong-Kong based GaveKal Research, cautioned investors that the financial markets are underestimating the likelihood of Le Pen winning. France will hold its first round of elections on Sunday, followed by a runoff between the top two vote-getters on May...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin would beat Sen. Orrin Hatch in a head-to-head matchup for the U.S. Senate, a new poll shows. The Centrist Project, which is recruiting candidates to run for Senate and state legislatures in 2018, commissioned the survey to gauge Utahns' opinions on several issues and the viability of an independent candidate in the upcoming Senate race. The poll by JMC Analytics found 33 percent of residents would vote for McMullin, 29 percent for Hatch and 11 percent for an unnamed Democrat if the election were held today. Another 10 percent favored...
  • Suspect in Fresno Killings Shouts Out in First Court Hearing

    04/21/2017 10:03:13 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 47 replies
    The suspect in this week's racially motivated shooting rampage in Fresno entered a courtroom early Friday shouting that natural disasters striking America will increase. Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, then shouted twice during a minute-long hearing: "Let black people go in reparations." He was charged Thursday with killing unarmed security guard Carl Williams at a Motel 6 a week earlier. Authorities say Williams was the first of four killings by Muhammad. Police say he told them that learning he was wanted for the Williams killing spurred him to try to kill as many white people as possible before he was caught....

    Is this posturing, or is Mick Mulvaney sending a signal that Trump is ready for a government shutdown? Congress is going to have a hot minute or so to pass the omnibus spending bill when they get back in town and the President’s budget boss has decided to toss some gasoline on the bonfire by insisting that funding for the first phase of construction of the wall be included. (Associate Press) White House budget director Mick Mulvaney says that Democratic negotiators on a massive spending bill need to agree to fund top priorities of President Donald Trump such as a...
  • Honeymoon from Hell: The Liberal Media vs. President Trump (89% negative coverage)

    As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party. Eight years ago, the networks’ treatment of President Obama’s first 100 days was very different. Back then, the networks...

    The Windy City has a whole host of issues to deal with these days, many of them centered around the fact that you’re more likely to be murdered there than in Fallujah on any given day. But rather than worrying about pesky little problems like that, the city council has decided to go after the really big ticket items on the agenda. One of these is to begin creating and distributing special municipal ID cards for various “underserved” groups including illegal immigrants. What could possibly go wrong? (CBS News, local) A program to create municipal identification cards passed overwhelmingly,...

    A fighter pilot was forced to eject during an attempted landing on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in the Celebes Sea, south of the Philippines, the US Navy has said. The pilot was recovered safely. The F/A-18E fighter jet, which was part of Carrier Air Wing 2, was on final landing approach after conducting “routine flight operations,” US 7th Fleet Command said in a statement. The incident is under investigation. “There are no apparent injuries at this time,” the Navy said, noting that the pilot has been evaluated by medical personnel aboard the Carl Vinson. The carrier is the...

    It can build four subs at a time. When this enclosed submarine factory begins operation later this year, the Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co. (BSHIC) will be able to quickly build nuclear submarines. Assembling SSNs in a building also provides the advantage of sheltering against the weather, not to mention nosy spy satellites. Starting later this year, China's new submarine factory on the Yellow Sea will churn out nuclear-powered attack submarines—also known as SSNs—all but ensuring that the sub program of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) will be a deadly global force. Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industrial Corporation is putting...

    General Motors became the latest corporation to have a factory or other asset seized by the government of Venezuela, and the Detroit automaker faces an uphill battle to recover any damages. GM said Thursday that its only factory in Venezuela was confiscated a day earlier, as anti-government protesters clashed with authorities in a country that is roiled by economic troubles. GM said assets such as vehicles were taken from the plant, causing the company irreparable damage.

    On Wednesday, Fox News announced that it was parting ways with "The O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly, whose ratings dominated the network. But due to a contract O'Reilly signed late last month, he'll be walking away with quite a sizable severance package. "It is a staggering amount," a source involved in the exit maneuverings told CNN Money. The outlet reported that Fox will pay O'Reilly "tens of millions of dollars." Due to a confidentiality agreement, 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly's representatives would not acknowledge the payout. But two well-placed sources told CNN Money that O'Reilly will be paid handsomely as...

    The Criminal Super Gang, MS-13, has a 30 year history in the US and yet Donald Trump appears to be the first President to attempt a serious take-down. Under Barrack Obama, several “fiscal targeting operations” were attempted to reduce their money supply, and massive operations put in place against “some” of the members (6 to be precise). But the one thing that could have actually destroyed them outright was never even considered: stopping illegal immigration. 60-70 percent of current U.S. members in MS-13 are immigrants, the majority of which could be illegal, and the remaining percent are likely born to...

    Repeal Obamacare now. Here's why it would work. House Republicans are reportedly ready to return any day now to health-insurance reform after the spectacular failure in late March of the American Health Care Act, the resoundingly unpopular bill to “replace” the long-unpopular and misnamed Affordable Care Act. This time, they need to deliver: After seven years of promises to repeal Obamacare root and branch, the party can’t go back to the voters with nothing more than a participation trophy. It won’t be easy, and it may be agonizingly slow, but the Democrats didn’t get Obamacare passed overnight: They spent 40...

    The construction of a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico Border is pushing ahead, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly said. In an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Kelly, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, reassured Americans that border wall construction will soon be underway. “I think something in the neighborhood of 100 companies from across the nation have shown interest and are starting to put together their prototypes,” Kelly said. “Of course, contracting is a pretty complicated business in the federal government, unfortunately. Too complicated. But I think by late spring, early summer we’ll have some prototypes.”

    Democrats inherit the foreign policy crises of a thousand Republican presidential fathers, but the foreign policy crises inherited by incoming Republicans in the White House are always orphans. Or at least that’s how the media likes to spin it. If you believe your random mainstream media outlet of choice, North Korea and Syria were crises freshly spawned by this administration with no prior history. But these ticking time bombs are the direct result of the two terrible terms of his predecessor. The Nobel Peace Prize winner’s years in the White House were the most dysfunctional, schizophrenic and senseless eight years...

    U.S. multinationals with plants in Venezuela are likely on edge Thursday, after American automaker General Motors (NYSE:GM) pulled the plug on its operations in the poverty-stricken country, following a government takeover of its plant amid large-scale violent protests. “All foreign companies, and especially U.S. firms, should be concerned with the increasingly extreme and aggressive behavior of the Venezuelan regime,” Ian Vasquez, director of the Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, told FOX Business. American beverage company Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO), however, indicated to FOX Business Thursday it didn’t have any plans to pull its operations from the distressed South American...

    On Wednesday, hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in Caracas and other Venezuelan cities to step up their continuing demonstrations against the government of President Nicolas Maduro. The march, called the “mother of all marches” by organizers, was met by riot police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets, while some demonstrators threw stones and firebombs. At least two students and a member of the National Guard were killed in the clashes. The opposition called for renewed protests today, as some Caracas business owners returned to inspect damaged and looted stores.
