    Koko, the thoughtful gorilla who captivated the world through her ability to use sign language and revealed an empathetic side to great apes, has died. She was 46. The western lowland gorilla passed away in her sleep Tuesday morning at the Gorilla Foundation’s preserve in California’s Santa Cruz mountains, the foundation said. “Koko touched the lives of millions as an ambassador for all gorillas and an icon for interspecies communication and empathy,” the foundation said on its website. “She was beloved and will be deeply missed.” Koko was believed to have had an IQ of between 75 and 95 and...

    North Korean President Kim Jong Un came under intense scrutiny this week after meeting with a barbaric nation that has killed over 60 million of its young since legalizing abortion in 1973. Political commentators agreed that by meeting with the nation of savages that abort hundreds of thousands of their young each and every year, Kim Jong Un appeared to be legitimizing the backwards, depraved nation of America.

His death comes three days after American designer Kate Spade, who built a...

    The Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday that “the Obama administration skirted key U.S. sanctions to grant Iran access to billions in hard currency despite public assurances the administration was engaged in no such action, according to a new congressional investigation.” And it gets even worse: “The investigation, published Wednesday by the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, further discloses secret efforts by top Obama administration officials to assure European countries they would receive a pass from U.S. sanctions if they engaged in business with Iran.” This revelation comes after the news that came to light in February, that, according to Bill...

    NEW YORK - After the president uninvited the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is trying to force President Donald Trump to talk — with a subpoena. Kaepernick is accusing the president and Vice President Mike Pence of colluding with the league to keep him from getting a job, according to Yahoo Sports. The 30-year-old last suited up in the NFL in 2016. At the beginning of that season, he kicked off the on-field protests against systemic racism that involve players kneeling during the national anthem before games. Before the next season, he...

    On Friday, just days before the election, reports are emerging that the FBI has re-opened the Hillary Clinton email investigation. “The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” a letter from FBI Director James Comey reads. And while Comey didn’t indicate how long the investigation could take, it’s pretty safe to bet investigators won’t come to any kind of decision before November 8th. It may even take months for the FBI to wrap up round two of this. So what happens if Clinton is elected, takes office, and then finds her...

    A former U.S. Navy sailor pardoned by President Trump intends to file a lawsuit against former President Barack Obama and former FBI Director James Comey that argues he received unequal punishment for his handling of classified information, according to a report. Kristian Saucier was sentenced to a year in prison for taking photos inside a nuclear submarine. But according to Fox News, Saucier plans to argue in his lawsuit that he received unequal protection of the law, as he was given a more severe punishment than others, including Hillary Clinton, received for similar misconduct. “They interpreted the law in my...

    Hours after the White House pummeled comedienne Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c***' on national television Wednesday night, the ''Full Frontal' host complained at an awards dinner that she shouldn't have been criticized at all. 'We spent the day wrestling with the repercussions of one bad word,' Bee groused as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences gave her an award at the NeueHouse Hollywood for 'programming that advanced social change.' Reporters were banned from covering the event in person, but DailyMail.com obtained a transcript of her brief remarks. She said that instead of venting their outrage...

    (CNSNews.com) - The federal government cut 3,000 jobs in May and federal employment has now dropped by 24,000 since President Donald Trump took office, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In April, there were 2,789,000 people employed in civilian federal government jobs. In May, that declined to 2,786,000, a drop of 3,000. In December 2016, the month before Trump took office, there were 2,810,000 civilians employed in the federal government. That has now dropped by 24,000 to...

    CNN contributor April Ryan has come under fire for sharing an article on Twitter that implied President Donald Trump’s administration is involved in a child sex-trafficking ring. On Thursday, Ryan shared an article from The Root, which was titled, “Is the Trump administration running a child-trafficking ring or nah? Follow me down the rabbit hole.” The article said the Trump administration is intentionally making it easier for minority children to be kidnapped and trafficked by criminals. It also claims the administration is doing this because — you guessed it — they are white nationalists who want to prevent minorities from...

In a show of patriotism before Memorial Day, the crowd at a high school softball championship game at Fresno State's Margie Wright Diamond on Friday night launched into their own rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" after it was announced that the song wouldn't be played because it had already been played before an earlier game. “Honestly, I was shocked (when) the announcer stated, ‘There will be no anthem, let’s...
