    Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. In an interview with NPR, the former secretary of state — who will speak in Washington on Monday evening as part of her nationwide book tour — would not rule out formally contesting the results of the election. “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s...
  • Democrats must denounce the rise in violence against Republicans

    As masked leftists use clubs to shut down free speech at Berkeley and elsewhere, Democrats have unfortunately been reticent to condemn the activity. But Antifa violence is not the only kind of condemnable disruptive activity. Democrats should also disavow the organized campaign to harass Republican congressmen and stop Republican town halls. One group in the thick of this battle is “Indivisible.” The group was founded by a former staffer for Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett, and its COO, Matt Traidi, is the research coordinator for the Service Employees International Union. Indivisible provides these instructions on how to prevent other town hall...
  • State Department Waging "Open War" on White House

    The U.S. State Department has backed away from a demand that Israel return $75 million in military aid which was allocated to it by the U.S. Congress. The repayment demand, championed by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was described as an underhanded attempt by the State Department to derail a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald J. Trump to improve relations with the Jewish state. The dispute is the just the latest example of what appears to be a growing power struggle between the State Department and the White House over the future direction of American foreign policy. The...

    The Queen’s most senior courtier was ‘forced out’ in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and the Prince of Wales, it was claimed last night. Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, suddenly announced in July that he was leaving after 15 years of royal service, loudly insisting that the monarchy was in good shape. The Mail revealed that he was being followed by his assistant private secretary, Samantha Cohen, the third most senior courtier in the Queen’s private office, amid tensions between the main royal households and their senior staff, particularly Buckingham Palace and Clarence House. Now The Times...

    The Queen’s most senior courtier was forced out in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and Prince Charles. Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, left his post in July after complaints by the Prince of Wales and his brother, the Duke of York, sources have revealed now. The unprecedented ousting — the first time the Queen has got rid of her private secretary — was the climax of increasing tensions between the two royal households. It came amid differences over how to manage the transition of power between the Queen, who is 91, and her eldest son. Royal sources...

    What are the chances that Donald Trump’s presidency could be brought to a halt by a military uprising? At first glance, it seems like a strange question, and the idea of a military coup in a developed and seemingly stable Western democracy feels far-fetched. But then again, memories are short: in May 1958, France faced a military revolt in Algeria that threatened to spread to the French mainland. Without it, General Charles de Gaulle would never have been president, and the Fifth Republic would never have been born. It may not be necessary to start preparing for military takeover in...

    President Donald Trump's longtime aide and current director of Oval Office operations Keith Schiller has told people he intends to leave the White House, three sources familiar with the decision told CNN. Schiller has told associates within the last two weeks that he plans to leave the White House at the end of September or in early October, the sources said. Schiller has told people his primary reason for leaving was financial, the sources said. Schiller earns a $165,000 annual salary at the White House -- a downgrade from his annual earnings before he followed Trump to the White House....

    NAIROBI, Kenya — The Latest on Kenya's presidential election court challenge (all times local): 12 p.m. Kenya's Supreme Court has nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's election win last month and called for new elections within 60 days. The six-judge bench ruled 4-2 in favor of the petition filed by opposition candidate Raila Odinga. He claimed that the electronic voting results were hacked into and manipulated manipulated in favor of Kenyatta. The president had won a second term with 54 percent of the vote. The court says the Aug. 8 election was not conducted with accordance with the constitution. Odinga's lawyer had...

    RUSH: This from The Daily Caller. This is Chatsworth Osborne Jr.’s website that he has now taken a leave from since he’s doing his Fox show. “Nearly half of the country believes the news media poses an equal or greater threat to the nation as white supremacists, according to a new Fox News poll out Wednesday. The poll found that 47 percent of registered voters think white supremacists are a greater threat, 40 percent think the news media is, and nine percent believe both are equal threats.” I’ll tell you what this shows. It shows the power of the fake...

    The Austin based Anti-fascists group, Red Guards Austin, has been gaining prominence in the Texas Antifa movement. As we have previously reported, they are a self described autonomous Marxist-Leninist-Maoist collective and their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations. They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism. “we must seriously take up the task not only of self-defense on the personal and community level, but we must also struggle to unite all genuine antifascists behind the necessity of revolution. Revolution means the long fight for communism and nothing less.” In a recent blog titled...

    Consider this. You have a small group of loyal participants willing to protest against any particular event, on cue from the PPA, Paid Protest Administrators. What to do? Yesterday. Write letters to everyone and every news agency to protest or complain. Usually, small numbers are ignored implying the protest is ignored. Today. You have programs that generate unique letters based on keywords and then send using thousands of correct email addresses (because you have access to data banks of addresses, on sale just anywhere). Ditto for Twitter addresses. This multiplies the small group by hundreds, thousands or even millions. For...

    Anti- White Supremacy protestors will demand President Donald Trump removal from office by starting a 10-day march from Charlottesville, Virginia to Washington, D.C. on Monday. The March is set to on August 28 and end in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Organizers say the march will be followed by an occupation of Washington, D.C. with daily nonviolent demonstrations, reported The Hill. "This is the time to confront white supremacy in our government and throughout our history. We demand that President Trump to be removed from office for allying himself with this ideology of hate and we demand an agenda...

    When Donald Trump used the phrase “alt-left” to describe the anti-neo-Nazi protesters in Charlottesville last week, most people had no idea what he meant. I’m actually not sure he knew what he meant. “What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the ‘alt-right’? Do they have any assemblage of guilt?” Trump said during a rambling press conference. If the alt-left exists, it’s probably best represented by “antifa” (short for “anti-fascist”) — a loose network of left-wing activists who physically resist people they consider fascists. These are often the scruffy, bandana-clad people who show up at alt-right...

    “James Clapper, who famously got caught lying to Congress, is now an authority on Donald Trump. Will he show you his beautiful letter to me?” Trump tweeted.... On Tuesday, Clapper blasted Trump following his fiery campaign speech in Phoenix. “I really question his ability, his fitness to be in this office, and I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it. Maybe he is looking for a way out,” Clapper said in an interview with CNN, where he was recently hired as a contributor. (RELATED: Clapper Says He’s Concerned That Trump Has Access To Nuclear Codes)

    The coup against President Trump has been developing for months and can be seen on the nightly news. Yet few talk about what it really means for the country and what can be done to avert this fate. Fortunately, we have the bulwark of the Constitution and protracted process inherent in the rule of law. But the urgency and clarity of mind to prevail and prevent the ouster of the President can certainly be heightened by grasping the goals and temperament of the power brokers who seek his destruction and the subsequent reordering of the country. Suffice it to say...

    In March, "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd made an ad for his show in which he lamented to the public: "What about our politics? Are there any rules anymore, and if so, will anybody play by them?" Todd assured viewers that he and NBC would enforce some rules. "These days, politics could use a little refereeing," he intoned. "And we're not afraid to blow the whistle." Wrong. The rulebook is being shredded. The antifa movement, or anti-fascist movement of far-left-leaning militant groups, is justifying violent action in the streets to beat back racists and neo-Nazis. Violence -- not as...

    Former National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper Jr. may have put it best when — appearing on CNN after Donald Trump’s dyspeptic, disjointed, disgraceful pep rally — he questioned the president’s fitness for office and whether he’s “looking for a way out.” What if, Mr. Clapper wondered in his most sobering assessment, a president capable of such a “downright scary and disturbing” performance before cheering supporters decides to use nuclear weapons against North Korea? “There’s actually very little to stop him,” the career intelligence professional observed. What made President Trump’s speech so frightening that Mr. Clapper is thinking about nuclear...
