    Mike Pompeo urges India, Pakistan to 'avoid escalation at any cost' US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has urged India and Pakistan to avoid further escalation "at any cost" and to "prioritise direct communication". In a statement issued by his office in Washington following India's Line of Control (LoC) violation, Secretary Pompeo said that he spoke with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj hours after Indian fighter jets intruded from the Muzaffarabad sector and scrambled back after dropping bombs. While civilian and military leaders in Pakistan termed the LoC breach "an act of aggression by...

    It seems one of the iconic figures of broadcast journalism has put his foot in his mouth again, this time by making a puzzling and racist statement about the Latinx community. On Meet the Press, in a discussion about the fallout of Trump’s government shutdown that included vile cretin Hugh Hewitt, former anchor Tom Brokaw set forth some... interesting ideas about the power of Latinx voters. Brokaw: "The Hispanics should be working harder on assimilation." — Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) January 27, 2019 “A lot of this, we don’t want to talk about. But the fact is, on the Republican...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D) office on Wednesday walked back his remark earlier in the day that America "was never that great," insisting the governor believes the U.S. is great but that it has not reached its "maximum potential." "The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality,” spokeswoman Dani Lever said in a statement. “America has not yet reached its maximum potential." Lever said Cuomo's comments were meant to address President Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again." "When the President speaks about making...
  • Coons: Democrats Need To Abandon 'Wild-Eyed' Race to Left

    Despite forecasts for a "blue wave" that would hand Democrats control of Congress in November's midterm elections, Coons said he is worried that far too many in his party are squandering the opportunity by "engaging in a relentless race to the left, with more and more outrageous proposals." He listed abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, promising free health care, guaranteeing jobs through government and attacking energy companies as hyper-liberal policy positions that are undermining the party's chances at winning back the voters it lost in 2016.

    Children of ILLEGAL immigrants have been seperated from their parents WHILE THE PARENTS WERE IN JAIL since 2002. Democrats, under Bush (the increasingly shrub-like) 2, passed this into law. It is 16 years old. Trump did not just start doing this. Obama did the same thing for 8 years. What suddently made this issue deserve 24/7 news coverage? NOTHING. Except as a means to distract from talking about the IG report.

    Nothing is so contagious as example; and we never do any great good or evil which does not produce its like. — Francois de la Rochefoucauld (1613-1680). Heroes for liberty are not particular to any region of the world or to a particular time period or to one sex. They hail from all nationalities, races, faiths, and creeds. They inspire others to a noble and universal cause—that all people should be free to live their lives in peace so long as they do no harm to the equal rights of others. They are passionate not solely for their own liberty,...

    < snip of beginning> Goldberg’s answer is so simple it seems too easy, and yet so difficult it seems unachievable. We need to teach and experience gratitude for what we have been given, which means reacquainting ourselves with the philosophical and scientific roots of the Miracle and then passing them on to our posterity. So much is arrayed against this effort, and yet we Americans, we tribal Americans, do long to belong to the American tribe. In his pathbreaking book, Goldberg makes it clear all we need do to find our place is to understand that we are the beneficiaries...

    ARLINGTON Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any players in his organization who disrespect the flag during the national anthem will not play in games. Jones is the first owner in the NFL to go on record about disciplining players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem. He didn’t specify kneeling or raising fists in the arm or other gestures made by players around the league. Jones made his strongest statements regarding the national anthem protests throughout the NFL after Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. “If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play....

    Steelers Center Maurkice Pouncey told reporters on Wednesday that the whole team will be on the sideline standing for the National Anthem this Sunday. Of course it took fans burning NFL gear, bombarding DirecTV and RedZone with phone calls demanding cancellation of football packages, sponsors backing out and loud boos from the stadium to get their attention. Pittsburgh CBS reported: After facing backlash about standing in the tunnel during the national anthem last Sunday, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey says the team will stand this Sunday. “I promise you one thing, this week we will all be standing out there for...

    Laughter may be the best medicine, but funnyman Al Franken needed something a bit more tragic to steer him off drugs. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran (and current U.S. senator from Minnesota) reveals in his new memoir that it wasn't until co-star John Belushi died that he realized the dangers of drugs and finally kicked his habit. Franken, 66, spent 15 years on the NBC sketch show, first as a writer, and then as a performer, and writes in his book "Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken" that he at first only managed to get through the...

    Sony/ATV Music Publishing — which administers Queen’s catalog including songs such as “We Are the Champion” — said a statement Tuesday they have repeatedly asked Trump not to use the “We Are the Champions,” which he played Monday during the first day of the Republican National Convention. Last month, Queen guitarist Brian May also wrote a blog post protesting the use of the song by the Trump campaign. “Sony/ATV Music Publishing has never been asked by Mr. Trump, the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization for permission to use ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen. On behalf of the band,...

    A Republican senator told conservatives Friday they should pray for President Barack Obama and suggested a biblical passage that says, “Let his days be few.” Georgia Sen. David Perdue told a gathering of religious conservatives that “we need to be very specific about how we pray.” He suggested using (Psalm 109:8), which reads: “Let his days be few, and let another have his office.” As the audience at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s conference laughed and applauded, Perdue said, “In all seriousness, I believe that America is at a moment of crisis.” …

    In his op-ed in The Washington Post, Chris Grayling, leader of the House of Commons, made the case for British withdrawal from the European Union -- in terms Americans can understand. Would you accept, Grayling asks, an American Union of North and South America, its parliament sitting in Panama, with power to impose laws on the United States, and a high court whose decisions overruled those of the U.S. Supreme Court? Would you accept an American Union that granted all the peoples of Central and South America and Mexico the right to move to, work in, and live in any...

    ST. GEORGE, Utah — Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich walked back from comments he made during an interview on "Meet The Press," saying that that if he becomes president, he would not consider Merrick Garland, President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, as a potential replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. In a pre-taped interview on Saturday, NBC's Chuck Todd asked Kasich about whether the Senate should hold hearings on Obama's pick. Kasich noted that while he doesn't think Obama should have named a replacement in the first place, he stated that members of the Senate should show...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump disavowed white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke in a tweet Sunday. "As I stated at the press conference on Friday regarding David Duke- I disavow." Earlier Sunday morning, Trump avoided a question about whether he'd condemn Duke's racism. The GOP front-runner said on CNN's "State of the Union" he didn't know anything about Duke and would need to research his connections before deciding whether he would condemn them. "I have to look at the group. I don't know what group you're talking about," he said. "You wouldn't want me to...

    The race for the White House comes down to one simple question. Who do you want nominating justices to the highest court in the land -- a Johnny-come-lately conservative or a proven constitutional conservative? Now -- I want to say something to all you folks out there who profess to be good churchgoing Christians. You could have prevented this from happening. But you refused to vote for Mitt Romney. You said he was too liberal. You said he was a Mormon. So you stayed home -- and Barack Obama got re-elected. To paraphrase Bonhoeffer: not to vote is to vote....

    Donald Trump sought Sunday to walk back his statements during Saturday night's Republican debate that former President George W. Bush bore responsibility for the Sept. 11 terror attack. "I am not blaming him," Trump said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. Trump continued to imply Bush erred, however. "The CIA said there was a lot of information that something like that was going to happen," he said. The attacks killed just under 3,000 Americans. During Saturday night's debate, Trump told former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: "The World Trade Center came down during your brother's reign, remember that." "How did he...

They're fraying so much that politically incorrect things are being said. Yvan Mayeur, the socialist mayor of Brussels, said the closure of the city’s restaurants, museums and shops, which is feared to have cost hundreds of millions of euros in lost trade, had been a “catastrophe”. "We cannot continue to live in these conditions. We will not live under the Islamic regime,” he said....

Whereas Angela Merkel said, "Come on in, 800,000 immigrants, migrants, refugees, this year, and 500,000 every year after that," guess what? The German people are saying, "Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah," because they're not happy about it. It's a bit of a disconnect there as well. Now German leaders are telling the migrants where they are going to have to live, and...
