    Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway allegedly punched a tuxedo-clad man at an exclusive inauguration ball just hours after the new commander-in-chief was sworn in, according to a witness. Conway, who serves as President Trump's senior counselor, apparently stepped between two men after they got into a scuffle at the invite-only Liberty Ball on Friday evening, an attendee told the Daily News. But the two men wouldn't break up the fight and Conway apparently punched one of them in the face with closed fists at least three times, according to the stunned onlooker.

    With little warning or explanation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently canceled a major climate change conference that had been scheduled for next month in Atlanta. The Climate and Health Summit, which had been in the works for months, was intended as a chance for public health officials around the country to learn more about the mounting evidence of the risks to human health posed by the changing climate. But CDC officials abruptly canceled the conference before President Trump’s inauguration, sending a terse email on Jan. 9 to those who had been scheduled to speak at the event....

He is also an army veteran, and a staunch pro-life advocate. Two years ago, Pompeo gave a Church speech where he said Muslims who think Islam is “the only way” needed to be dealt with. “This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer,” Pompeo told the church-goers, according to Press TV. “These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe...

    WASHINGTON (AP) – The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee will request a delay on the confirmation vote on President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general.

But committee rules allow any member of the panel to hold a vote over until the next week, and members of both parties frequently do. A spokesman for California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Monday that she will request the extra week “to give the committee more time to conduct its due...

    Spero News ^ | JAN 22, 2017 | MARTIN BARILLAS
    In an interview with Fox News’ “Fox News Sunday,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that he would not rule out using a simple majority in the upper chamber rather than the 60-vote supermajority that Senate rules demand in order to confirm President Trump’s nominees for Supreme Court. In 2003, then-Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) resorted to the so-called “nuclear option” to confirm lower court nominees, but stopped short of using it for nominees to the high court. McConnell said today, "Let me just say, I'm confident we'll get a Supreme Court nominee confirmed." He added, “I expect an...

For example, news.com.au noted that the Australian government “has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than...

    Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE." Very unfair! Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING! I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state! Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?

    As many of you are aware the FBI mysteriously dumped 300 pages of investigative material in an unusual Sunday evening upload. For the sake of brevity we are calling it “a release”. [ ] In addition to the Sidney Blumenthal angle, the question posed by Lou Dobbs about FBI motive for uploading the documents is a dangling participle remaining from the discussion. However, within the release on Page #283 there’s an important discovery which may answer that question. Bear with me, as I try to explain a complex issue. As outlined by the research group behind the Thompson Timeline, there’s...

No one answered the phone at the Open Society Institute in Budapest when Bloomberg News called outside business hours.

The petition has already received nearly 300 signatures, the petition’s creator Sergey Bizyukin told CNN. “Some saw it as a joke and signed because it was fun,...
