    Dana White is FURIOUS with Jason Aldean -- telling TMZ Sports the country singer's team lied to him about why he couldn't perform in front of Vegas shooting survivors and 1st responders at UFC 216. White says he had reached out to Aldean's camp to sing the national anthem at UFC 216 in Vegas on Saturday night ... an event in which 15 survivors and hundreds of 1st responders were in the crowd. White says Aldean's people turned down the offer -- saying he was shaken up from the shooting and might never perform live again.

    Greg Popovich, while mocking Trump during his media day presser, inadvertently tells the truth about the locked arms. The context is based on Trump's tweet about the Cowboys standing with locked arms and approving of it. In so many words: "This is an individual who thought players locking arms were honoring the flag. That's just delusional."

    Office of the Speaker Speaker.Gov ^ | May 1, 2017 | Speaker Paul Ryan
    From day one, President Trump has made it clear that securing the border is a top national priority. Republicans in Congress couldn’t agree more. That’s why this week, Congress will vote for the biggest increase in border security funding in a long time. Here’s what that means: More boots on the ground - Customs and Border Protection will see $12.2 billion in funding—$911 million above last fiscal year—which means more agents, enhanced technology, and better tools to stem the flow of illegal activities across our border, as President Trump requested in his own budget amendment. The end of “catch and...

    The President and Congress agreed to a spending bill to get the government through to September. President Chuck Schumer said: This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said... Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). “The bill ensures taxpayer dollars aren’t used to fund an ineffective border wall, excludes poison pill riders and increases investments in programs that the middle class relies on, like medical research, education and infrastructure.” Since Republicans lost the presidency and the Congress in the last election, it is no surprise that this spending bill...

    The Golf Transcript ^ | 04/23/2017 | Staff
    Someone was obviously using a potato field as their personal driving range. According to a report at NBC News, McCain Foods of North Carolina is recalling frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because pieces of golf balls were found in the potatoes. The recall notice said the golf balls were “inadvertently harvested,” meaning some old golf balls were scooped up, along with the potatoes, by the farming rig.
  • Flashback (Last Week): McCain and Graham: Trump will regret letting Bashar al-Assad off the hook

    Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are upset with the Trump administration signaling that removing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power is no longer a top priority. During a trip to Turkey, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Assad's fate will be decided by the Syrian people. That sentiment was echoed by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who told reporters, "You pick and choose your battles. And when we're looking at this it's about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit and focus on getting Assad out."

    CTH has fought this for years. The best thing we can do now is to try and assist people with information that will help them make forward decisions. It isn’t Paul Ryan’s fault and I’ll explain on that later. First the foundations: All DC Republicans and all DC Democrats are the DC UniParty. The DC UniParty is fueled by special interest donor lobbying money. The DC UniParty created Obamacare and the DC UniParty wants ObamaCare to remain in place. For six years we have attempted, and failed, to educate people on the UniParty. There is only one political party in...

    Senator Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz pushed the House Freedom Caucus to remain firm in opposition to President Trump. Having successfully defeated his opposition, Senator Paul pulls out the UniParty dance music and proposes solutions that can go no-where. As you watch this, remember the House and Senate schedule spring break is next week…. Ergo Paul says “legislation should be brought up next week” blah-blah-blah. This is a familiar UniParty ‘controlled opposition‘ trick. Go public and make the solution something you know has absolutely no chance of even being explored. Makes the abuser look great, and keeps the...

    LONDON (Reuters) - The British government has referred Rupert Murdoch's planned 11.7 billion pound ($14.4 billion) takeover of European pay-TV group Sky to regulators to decide if the deal is in the public interest. Media Secretary Karen Bradley told parliament it was important to seek advice from the regulator Ofcom on whether the deal would give Murdoch and his companies too much control of Britain's media, and whether the new owner would be committed to broadcasting standards.

During an interview with Bloomberg TV, Dimon said Trump’s pro-growth agenda has reinvigorated business owners and consumers alike. "[It] will be good for growth, good for jobs, good for Americans," Dimon said

    When I woke up Sunday, I thought the morning news shows would all be talking about the unusual, perhaps dangerous, decision of the Obama administration to wiretap the offices of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. I’ve been watching Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press” as I write this. There is actually little talk about this unprecedented wire-tapping and even less worry over it. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, usually thoughtful, just told Chuck Todd he found it is “shocking” that Trump disclosed the wiretapping claim on Twitter. But Friedman offered no shock that such a wiretap might have taken place! I...
  • Robbie Mook Is Asked If Clinton Team Met With Russia (Ralph Kramden-esque)

    Robbie Mook earlier tweeted out that the media should ask every Trump associate if they ever met with Russian officials. The host then, naturally (and surprisingly), asks if anyone from the Clinton team ever met with the Kremlin. It's clear that Mook did not expect this curveball question, and immediately starts stammering and contradicting himself ("It's normal to meet Russians"?) but quickly deflects and says (more or less) that it's important to keep the focus on Trump and not get bogged down in things like if Hillary Clinton ever met with Russians (aside from when she handed over 20% of...
