    Mattis wanted to send a third aircraft-carrier group to the Persian Gulf earlier this year, The Daily Beast has exclusively learned, in what would have been a massive show of force at a time when Iranian military commanders were publicly threatening to sink American ships in the Strait of Hormuz. The four-star Marine Corps general and CentCom commander believed the display could have deterred Iran from further escalating tensions, according to U.S. military officials familiar with his thinking. But the president wanted to focus military resources on new priorities like China, and Mattis was told a third carrier group was...

    A former senior adviser to the Joint Chiefs told me that the document was an ‘all-source’ appraisal, drawing on information from signals, satellite and human intelligence, and took a dim view of the Obama administration’s insistence on continuing to finance and arm the so-called moderate rebel groups. Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the DIA between 2012 and 2014, confirmed that his agency had sent a constant stream of classified warnings to the civilian leadership about the dire consequences of toppling Assad. The jihadists, he said, were in control of the opposition. Turkey wasn’t doing enough to stop the smuggling...

    Looking back after yesterday's/this morning's win, is anyone else other than me actually now glad Romney lost in 2012? If he won, he would have been facing a re-election campaign after a mediocre 4 years of status quo, against the same Hillary Clinton we just defeated, but with less fire and offense to attack her over her scandals, voter fraud, and over all policies? Looking back, I believe it was God's will that he lost, otherwise we might never have President Trump today to MAGA!!!

There's no doubt Kony is a bad man, killing tens of thousands of people, and using a child army to displace more than a million others. Critics are now focusing on the nonprofit organization Invisible Children, which produced the documentary. The charity is also being scrutinized for what they do with the money they raise.

Ford showed great personal courage in his service while Bashar al-Assad instigated attacks on Western embassies and eventually provoked a massive civil war which has turned into a regional threat, thanks to the collapse of his power in large regions of Syria. The collapse of American policy in Syria over the past year was presumed to have prompted Ford’s departure, which he confirms with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview today.This is interesting for more...

    Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton turned away a high-ranking Chinese defector who sought political asylum after the communist police chief sought refuge in a U.S. consulate in southwestern China four years ago. Critics say Clintons handling of the defection of Wang Lijun, a close aide to a regional Communist Party leader, was a blunder and lost opportunity for U.S. intelligence to gain secrets about the leaders of Americas emerging Asian adversary. Instead of sheltering Wang and granting him political asylum, Clinton agreed to turn him over to Chinese authorities in Beijing, and claimed he was not qualified for American...

    Mitt Romney- "Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs, he has done it in Nevada and across the country. He is one of the few people who stood up and said China has taken jobs from Americans. We believe in free trade but we have to have a President to stand up and not allow people to cheat day in and day out."

    The Federal Election Commission has fined Sen. Marco Rubio $8,000 for accepting more than $210,000 in improper contributions during his 2010 run for the Senate. In a negotiated settlement finalized last month but only publicly released now, Marco Rubio for Senate acknowledged taking in more than $210,000 in "prohibited, excessive and other impermissible contributions" during his Senate campaign and failing to refund or "redesignate" the funds within the allowed time frame. Even after an internal audit, the Rubio campaign failed to identify more than $83,000 in improper or incorrectly characterized contributions, according to a March 19 agreement between the campaign...

The subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.

    Rick Santorum called for immigration reform on Tuesday, saying that without newcomers from abroad the United States is going to shrink. “I think the fact that we send some of those people back and don’t give them the opportunity to participate here is wrong,” Santorum told POLITICO. (SNIP) Santorum didn’t advocate for a specific immigration policy while he spoke with POLITICO following an appearance at Books-A-Million in McLean, Va., where he signed copies of his book, “American Patriots.” Santorum, sporting his signature sweater vest, was also promoting Patriot Voices, the 501(c)4 group he launched in June to support conservative candidates.

    WASHINGTON -- Customized mass-mail campaigns from groups on the left and the right are using peer pressure to get out the vote by comparing recipients' voting records with those of their neighbors. A first wave of mailers from a conservative group has spawned complaints about invasion of privacy and intimidation. More than 2 million registered voters around the country recently received flyers in the mail from Virginia-based Americans for Limited Government. The "vote history audits" in the mailers show whether recipients made it to the polls in the last several elections, and list neighbors by name and address with their...
