    I'm imagining what future historians will write...-------------- Barack Obama's one true legacy that cannot be destroyed: President Donald Trump.With determined narcissism, with great hubris Barack Hussein Obama did great service. He brought America to the precipice and forced us to stare into the pit. The people recoiled at the terror of becoming like Venezuela or Zimbabwe. A great man stepped forward. This great man looked at his beloved family and knew he had to act, for he knew he could act. Divine Providence shined upon his golden locks. The people annointed a new leader.President Donald Trump. The Champion, the Peace...

    The DNC has voted not to accept any donations from fossil fuel companies. From HuffPost: The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. “We talk about how climate change is real and climate change is a planetary emergency, what we need to do is stop taking money from the institutions that have created this crisis,” said RL Miller, president of the super...

    Target is apologizing to offended customers after shoppers began slamming the retailer for offering "Baby Daddy" greeting cards ahead of Fathers Day, and after one Twitter user calling them an insult to black fathers and a slap in the face to the African-American community as a whole.

    While the Anti-Trump Mandarins of the Commentariat (ATMC, for short) are busy untwisting their knickers after the Presidents historic summit meeting with the Tubby Tyrant of North Korea, I have an important real-estate tip to pass along: beach-front property in North Korea. Keep your eye on it. As Trump said yesterday in his wide-ranging press conference following his meeting with Kim Jong-un, that stretch of land between China and South Korea would be an ideal spot for luxury hotels and condos, if only Kim would stop shooting off cannons there. [snip] What we saw yesterday was a calm, confident, and...

    What Ails Us? The Rise of the Imperial, Autonomous Self Msgr. Charles Pope • June 12, 2018 • A rather succinct and accurate summary of our current malaise is that we live in the age of “the imperial, autonomous self.” In effect, many if not most people claim an authority, a right, to craft their own reality and live according to their own notions of it. Not so long ago, it was generally accepted that reality was something outside ourselves, something that we had to go out to meet, study, and obey. There was a certain “is-ness” to things....

    Well, we had to expect that thered be at least some litigation-flavored fallout over that nasty Andrew McCabe firing; ousting the guy a day before his planned retirement and thereby yanking away his health and retirement benefits was a signature Trump display of one-upsmanship. It looks like David L. Snyder, counsel for McCabe (much like we at Law & Crime), knew that the defamation lawsuit McCabe initially threatened wasnt really the way to go. As an alternative, hes trying his hand at a different kind of claim. Instead of suing for some version of Trump Shouldnt Have Fired My Client,...

    The only way to send the pretenders a message is to stop watching their movies and avoid watching any self aggrandizing awards shows - like the Tony Awards. Who needs actors anyway? While leftists applaud De Niro, the Raging Bulls__t, for his foul mouthed remarks and idiotic gestures at the egomaniacal Tony Awards, those of us with a sense of decency wonder what happened to the entertainment industries integrity. I just dont think a respectable person would have gotten up in front of a world audience and muttered such idiotic filth. By the same token, I dont think a respectable...

    Recent developments indicate a possible turnaround of events in the hotly contested Syrian war zones because of rethinking process of how best to achieve the aim of containing Iran. This seems to be imminent because of apparent cracks in the Russia-Iran alliance that has been shoring up Al Assads regime for the last three years at least. Two other players, namely Turkey and the US, have apparently reached what seems to be a workable level of understanding to coordinate their activities in the heavily Kurdish populated parts of Syria, particularly in Manbij area. Recent reports suggest that the US and...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller and his deputy Rush Atkinson filed a 14-page motion Tuesday arguing that the government shouldnt have to release certain evidence to indicted Russian company Concord Management and Consulting LLC due to ongoing interference operations against the United States. In the motion, Muellers team requested a protective order to: (1) keep other co-defendants named in the February 16 indictment from accessing the governments evidence against them; and (2) to keep additional evidence under the control of government attorneys and away from Concord Management itself.

    We can all agree that AR’s are not only reliable but are great at short ranges from 0 to 300 yards. But what if you want to reach out further to 400 yard or 1000 yards? For the larger cartridge would the AR be able to deliver the same punch as its cousin the .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor? Before making the decision to go with an AR10 or AR15, lets take a look at the comparisons.AR-10 The AR10 rifle is an air-cooled lightweight rifle that is gas operated and comes with the 7.62mm (.308) barrel. uses the standardized 7.62x51mm loads...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails reviewed by Fox News documenting the encounter and reflecting what aides described as a personal attack. The emails memorialized a January 2018 closed-door meeting involving senior FBI and Justice Department officials as well as members of the House Intelligence Committee. The account claimed Rosenstein threatened to turn the tables on the committees inquiries regarding the Russia probe.[snip] A second House committee staffer at the meeting backed up...

    When in doubt, the Dems go to Hollywood. That's where so much of their cash and cultural cachet comes from. The only problem with that plan is seriously thinking that Hollywood can help you connect with the rest of the country. DNC Chairman Tom Perez, several House members and other top elected officials have already met with the group, formed by members of the entertainment industry in the wake of the 2016 election, that participants liken to a TV writers room, complete with producers of such programs as Veep. Nothing like a widely popular program watched across the country to...

    Hes got a resume that includes pimping, owning a brothel and starring in his own adult reality show and he could be the next representative in the Nevada state legislature. Dennis Hof took the GOP primary Tuesday night, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported. Hof beat James Oscarson, a three-term incumbent, for the nomination. Hof, also known by a few as the author of The Art of the Pimp, says he owes his electoral triumph to President Donald Trumps inspiration. Its all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me, Hof informed the Associated Press. He found the way and...

    A colossal waste of time, money, and the public's attention span is underway in the golden state. Casey Tolan of the Mercury-News reports: For the first time since before the Civil War, voters across California will decide in November on a proposal to split up the Golden State – potentially remaking it into three new states. An initiative dividing California, pushed by Silicon Valley venture capital investor Tim Draper, received enough signatures to qualify it for the November ballot, the Secretary of State's office confirmed Tuesday afternoon. Supporters of the radical plan submitted more than 600,000 signatures, and a random sample projected that...

    U.S. President Donald Trump's Republican allies in Congress are moving to block his deal to put Chinese telecom giant ZTE back in business if it pays $1 billion more in fines for violating U.S. sanctions against Iran. The Chinese company has been accused of violating U.S. sanctions by selling sensitive equipment to both North Korea and Iran. After Trump announced his deal with China and ZTE last week, Senate leaders said they would seek to reverse it. Republican and Democratic lawmakers introduced the amendment. Among other things, it would restore penalties on ZTE for violating U.S. export controls and bar...

    Quality of life in an American city often depends on the neighborhood one lives in, as abject poverty and crime can be found just blocks away from prosperity. Still, as much as a city can be judged on the whole, some cities face widespread problems that detract from their residents overall quality of life. Americans take into consideration a number of factors when deciding where to live, including the quality of schools, the strength of the local economy and job market, the areas safety and culture, as well as its climate. Cities that perform well by these measures are more...

    Donald Trump erased all doubts about who owns the Republican Party on Tuesday night as several Trump-backed candidates swept to victory in GOP primaries. Primaries were held in Maine, South Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and North Dakota.  Po-Trump candidates win crucial races.  The most notable among Trump's victories occurred in South Carolina, where former governor and current GOP incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, a bitter critic of the president, went down to defeat. CBS: In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year – and the latest victim of...

Homeland Security Investigations spokeswoman Nina Pruneda confirmed that the agency is investigating. Except for the five injured, all of the trailer's occupants were taken to a detention center after they were searched.
