    Obama admin 'unmasking' right up to inauguration, sources say Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News. Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last...

    The Liberals of the Democrat party have given way to the progressive-socialists that have overtaken their party. Every law passed under the Obama administration was further down the pathway to a totalitarian government that would have been used to further control the citizens of this country. The rule of law has been pushed aside to show the American people that our laws so eloquently delineated in our founding the God given rights of our culture are longer of any use to those who wish to use the Democratic Party to destroy this country. The perception that the Progressive/socialist Democrat party...

    Stick a fork in the Democrats and Republicans. Wednesday night's latest round of deal making between President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders is the latest evidence that the major political parties have lost all semblance of real power. Never before have we seen the leadership of both major political parties so humbled. That power vacuum is currently enabling the president to act without any loyalty to his own party, while working with whomever he pleases on whatever issues he wants. It's why we have a Republican congressional leadership, headlined by a Senate Majority Leader with an 18 percent approval...

    SEATTLE - Mayor Ed Murray abruptly announced his resignation from his post Tuesday, about two hours after The Seattle Times reported that his cousin said Murray had repeatedly molested him in the 1970s when he was a teenager. Murray's cousin became the fifth man to accuse the mayor of sexual abuse. Earlier allegations of sexual abuse prompted Murray to drop out of his campaign for re-election but he had steadfastly refused to resign until now. He said his resignation would be effective Wednesday at 5 p.m. “While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my...

    A former staffer for U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez testified Monday that the Democrat helped with the visa applications of friends of a wealthy doctor who faces bribery charges with him, while defense attorneys sought to show Menendez's actions were unremarkable and part of the duties of his office. Under direct questioning from the government, former senior policy adviser Mark Lopes testified Menendez emailed him in 2008 authorizing a letter of support from Menendez to be sent to consular officials regarding the visa applications of two sisters from the Dominican Republic.*snip*Earlier Monday, a vice president for American Express testified Melgen used...

    Democrats claim that they have always supported equal rights for black Americans and that Republicans are racists who always oppose them. Both claims are flat out lies. From its founding in 1854, the Republican Party led the fight to end slavery and then eradicate the racist Jim Crow system that held blacks down right up to securing the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Democrats opposed the Republicans at every turn.

    For the first time in nearly four decades, a sitting US senator goes on trial Wednesday on federal bribery charges in a case that could have profound political impact. Prosecutors have laid out a strong case against New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez in their indictment. But in the two years since it was unveiled, the Supreme Court has made it much harder to win a conviction. The senator is charged with taking nearly $1 million in personal gifts and campaign cash from a longtime friend, allegedly in return for political favors.

    Chuck Schumer is in a spirited mood. "This is going to be one of the biggest fights of the next three, four months," the Senate minority leader said recently of the coming debate over tax cuts. "And Democrats are ready for it." No doubt they are. But the relevant question is: Does their readiness even matter? Last month Mitch McConnell said he planned to bring taxes to the Senate floor under the budget reconciliation procedure. That would bypass the filibuster. The bill could pass by majority vote. No Democrats required. And Republicans are unlikely to experience the defections over taxes...

    A spokeswoman for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan condemned the radical left-wing protest group Antifa on Thursday evening, describing them as “left-wing thugs.” In a statement provided to The Daily Caller, Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said: “Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country.” In recent weeks, Ryan has repeatedly failed to condemn the group, and actively contradicted President Donald Trump’s claim that there were “many sides” responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, following clashes between white...

    Federal prosecutors told a federal judge that Sen. Robert Menendez repeatedly told “lies” to the press to cover up a “corrupt pact spanning seven years” that included free private jet trips the senator received from a wealthy Florida eye doctor. Prosecutors said email evidence will show Menendez at times specifically asked Melgen for the free trips. In one email, they said he even specified a luxury hotel in Paris and the kind of room he wanted. Menendez allegedly wrote of wanting a $1,500 a night room in a hotel that had a “…king bed, work area with internet, limestone bath...

    Given that 2016 was the worst year for homicides in nearly two decades in Chicago, it comes as little surprise that the city has a reputation as one of the most violent places in the United States. Last year, there were 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims with an average of 12 people shot every single day. In fact, the Windy City experienced more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined last year with the number of homicides there since 2001 eclipsing U.S. war dead in Iraq and Afghanistan by late November. Even though it had...

    With the Democrats in full attack mode, shamelessly exploiting the tragic events of Charlottesville and eradicating any monuments that implied a racist past, Conservatives are now on all media platforms decrying the attempt to whitewash the racist history of the Democrat Party; the party to whom almost all of those depicted in the monuments aligned with. I was one of a group of black conservatives who've been sounding the alarm bells on this topic for decades. My very first op-ed bore the frustration of the party that was born by abolitionists to oppose slavery was being falsely accused of racism...

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) disagrees with President Trump's decision to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday. "The speaker does not agree with the decision," Ryan's spokesman Doug Andres told The Wall Street Journal. "Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon."

    Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal called for President Donald Trump's assassination Thursday. Now she just got devastating news about her political career. Chappelle-Nadal was stripped of all committee assignments Tuesday by her own party's leadership and was called a “distraction.” The senator has been removed from the eight committees, a devastating blow to any potential political effectiveness for Chappelle-Nadal since the committees are where all legislation begins.

    I have called on a good number of blogs, TV news stations & web sites to take a poll to see how many Americans feel that Democrat Governor, Terry McAuliffe planned and caused the riot/murder in Charlottesville, Virginia. IMHO....there is plenty of factual feedback to indicate that is true from many independent sources. So....I'll try something else my own "yes or no" poll. Is McAulliffe guilty...yes or no?

    Ever since the 2016 primaries, the Warren/Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wing of the party has become more vocal, more active, and completely blinded with rage over Donald Trump’s 2016 win. Many are saying the moderate, centrist path that kept Bill Clinton in the White House for two terms is over, and that Jon Ossoff, who lost the most expensive House race in Georgia, lost because he took a middle way in messaging. They’re gung-ho about making single-payer the new litmus test. First, they’re having a fight about abortion and whether backing pro-life Democrats is akin to making a deal with...
