    The missing machine gun that triggered the firing of a security forces chief at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, in May turned up in what’s probably the last place the Air Force wanted it to: stashed in an airman’s home off-base. Minot officials announced on Wednesday that the machine gun had been recovered by Air Force Office of Special Investigation agents after obtaining a federal search warrant for the unnamed airman’s residence on June 19. The machine gun was discovered missing during a standard weapons inventory by the 91st Missile Wing security forces on May 16, just about two...
  • John Brennan, in Ominous Tweet to Pres. Trump, Calls for Insurrection by Cabinet, GOP Leadership

    Former Obama CIA Director John Brennan responded to a tweet by President Donald Trump on Saturday decrying the ‘Russia withc hunt’ investigation with an ominous tweet calling for Trump’s cabinet and inner circle to turn on him. While Brennan stopped short of explicitly calling for the invocation of the 25th Amendment, impeachment or an outright coup to remove Trump from office, his language strongly implies such actions. Trump tweeted Saturday at 7:33 A.M. EDT, “.@FoxNews Poll numbers plummet on the Democrat inspired and paid for Russian Witch Hunt. With all of the bias, lying and hate by the investigators, people...

    When the government deprives a person of life, liberty or property, it is required to use fundamentally fair processes. The Supreme Court has made clear that when governmental action “shocks the conscience,” it violates due process. Such conduct includes investigative or prosecutorial efforts that appear, under the totality of the circumstances, to be motivated by corruption, bias or entrapment. In U.S. v. Russell (1973), the justices observed: “We may someday be presented with a situation in which the conduct of law enforcement agents is so outrageous that due process principles would absolutely bar the government from invoking judicial processes to...

    OK, I'm just going to throw it out there: Martial Law. Two or more guys breaking into my house ANYtime day or night, is called an invasion. I will use all means at my disposal to deal with that situation. I have high expectations of prevailing. If they have a van full of supporters in my driveway cheering them on and tossing them supplies, I'm going to try to turn them into toast, as well, to the best of my ability. Mr. President, our Home is being invaded. The invaders are being cheered on (and more) by people from inside...

    Beleaguered ABC News was reeling Thursday morning after having to correct its latest anti-Trump error -- an on-screen caption Wednesday afternoon that falsely stated that Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's ex-campaign chief, pleaded guilty to five charges of manslaughter. ABC quickly apologized for the error – saying there “is no excuse” -- and an ABC spokesperson said the network is still “investigating” what went wrong. But ABC News sources tell Fox News that the false report was a “practice chyron” that had likely been maliciously written by a hostile ABC News employee (a chyron is a TV news term for words...
  • Germany: Left-wing violence and extremism on the rise

    German security officials say left-wing extremists have become more willing to use violence over the past five years. Figures released by the domestic intelligence agency BfV on Wednesday show the number of left-wing extremists whom authorities consider potentially violent rose 27 percent from 7,100 to about 9,000 between 2012 and 2017. The number of violent crimes committed by left-wing extremists rose 88 percent during that period, to 1,648 from 876.

    My name is Roger. I lived in Denver for over 33 years. I voted every election against illegal immigration and against the marijuana that they brought with them to my country. The smell of people checking out of reality could be experienced all around Denver, especially from the freeways at highway speeds at I-70 and Colorado Blvd and at I-25 and Auraria Campus. I was a truck driver handling eighty thousand pounds of vehicle and merchandise at the time which made me very dangerous behind the wheel if not paying attention. As you know, a sleepy driver is more deadly...
  • Spain's new government to remove Franco's remains from mausoleum

    Madrid (AFP) - Spain's new Socialist government is determined to remove the remains of Francisco Franco from a vast mausoleum near Madrid and turn it into a place of "reconciliation" for a country still coming to terms with the dictator's legacy. "We don't have a date yet, but the government will do it," Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said late Monday during his first television interview since being sworn in on June 2 after toppling his conservative predecessor Mariano Rajoy in a confidence vote. He recalled that a non-binding motion approved last year in parliament called for Franco's remains to be...

In other words, the premise that motivated so many Trump supporters is proven true: The DC Establishment really was out to get Trump.

    The judge appointed by Barack Obama who put Paul Manafort in jail this week previously cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility for the deaths of four American servicemen in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Manafort was put in jail for allegedly engaging in witness tampering, but most people see the jailing as a fraud to divert public attention away from the IG report that slammed James Comey and bolstered President Donald Trump’s arguments against the corrupt Deep State. Amy Berman Jackson, a past Bill Clinton donor and federal judge, threw out a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton filed by Sean Smith’s mother...

    Whatever teen anti-gun celebrity David Hogg learned in high school, it apparently wasn’t the English language. It’s that, or he actually wants to increase the number of gun deaths in inner-city communities. Either way, the poster boy for the gun-grabbing left is showing all the world just how confused and ignorant he really is. In recent a Twitter exchange with a conservative commentator, Hogg let his ignorance slip with a colossally nonsensical argument for the left’s favorite economic policy: Raising the minimum wage.

    Why is Trump running so fast? What’s the rush? It can only mean that Trump takes seriously Satchel Paige’s observation, which runs as “Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.” That, plus he’s a New Yorker, which is to say he is bred, trained and conditioned to move fast in a town and in a business where runner-up gets no diploma. You have to win and as president, Trump’s been chalking up his wins at an impressive pace – but why the rush? Is it to fix things before it’s too late? His successes together with his attempts...

    Long shot Restoring Hope's run in Saturday's Belmont Stakes is being questioned by some competitors, who suggest the horse might have been used to block other horses from catching stablemate Justify on his way to the Triple Crown. Bob Baffert trains both Justify and Restoring Hope, which went off at 37-1 and then broke fast to the front and settled into second place for much of the race, just off Justify's shoulder, before falling to eighth at the finish. Mike Repole, who co-owns fourth-place finisher Vino Rosso and last-place finisher Noble Indy, and Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez both...

    Siegfried Engelmann is the real thing, an educator who loves to teach children and knows how to do it, both personally and in his books. As far back as the late 1960s, he told the Education Establishment: you’re doing it all wrong. Engelmann takes a scientific approach. He believes you formulate programs, test them, revise them, and keep doing this until you get solutions that give you the greatest success in the ordinary classroom. Q: As you look at the entire field of education, what is the one thing that most offends you? A: The disconnect between what occurs in...

    A CNBC journalist on Saturday responded to President Trump’s lengthy press conference in Canada by saying he was concerned about the president’s mental health -- the latest Trump-related health concern raised by media outlets. CNBC correspondent John Harwood made the remarks on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.” Mediaite first reported on Harwood’s comments. Trump used the press conference to take a hard stance on tariffs, warning allies not to retaliate against U.S. tariffs on aluminum and steel. He also criticized past U.S. leaders for their handling of the crisis on the Korean Peninsula and trade -- something he has done multiple times...

    In a bizarre turn of events, President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday he wants to ask NFL players who knelt during the national anthem to suggest more people for him to pardon. Before heading to the G-7 summit in Canada, Trump addressed reporters outside the White House. When the topic of pardons arose, Trump surprised many by suggesting he'd take suggestions on who to pardon next from the same NFL players he bashed. AFTER SAYING NO ONE SHOULD REMAIN IN THE LOCKER ROOMS DURING THE PLAYING OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, TRUMP INVITED PLAYERS TO GIVE HIM SUGGESTIONS FOR PARDONS...
