    Comedian Michelle Wolf's Netflix talk show,"The Break With Michelle Wolf," will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season. Deadline reported on Friday that Wolf's Netflix series had been canceled only about three months after its first episode aired. The show's last episode was released on July 29. Wolf has not yet made a statement about her show's cancellation. The "Daily Show" star gained widespread notoriety earlier this year after giving a speech during the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner in which she repeatedly slammed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "I actually really like...

    UPDATE (11:50 PM 8/13/18): The West Virginia House of Delegates has impeached all four of the state's Supreme Court justices. The Republican-led House on Monday night impeached Justice Beth Walker and the other justices for abusing their authority. The article says they failed to control office expenses and not maintaining policies over important matters such as working lunches, the use of state vehicles and office computers at home. Walker was the last of the four justices to be impeached. She had avoided impeachment earlier when the House voted not to pass an article against her for $131,000 in renovations she...

    Former FBI agents say the text messages are not the only reason Strzok was fired (Snip) “Strzok was under oath before Congress and he made statements that appeared to be false and refused to answer some questions, but he was going to get just a slap on the wrist,” said a former supervisory special agent from OPR adjudication, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the nature of their work. “There is absolutely no wiggle room when it comes to lack of candor in the FBI…unless you’re an SES (Senior Executive Service). Strzok’s firing went well beyond texting about...

    Holding Office From 'The Swamp' In today’s toxic environment found inside “the swamp,” I am often reminded of the old saw about evil flourishing when good people do nothing. I consider this a truism, an absolute, a defined value that is not zero. Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to see this phenomenon up close and personal. As the Mueller investigation trundles along with the narrative unraveling at a shocking pace, one would think that sooner or later, the Congress would get fed up and would call a halt to this travesty. This investigation has cost the American people millions...

    Tucker Carlson asked Fox Business host Lou Dobbs about why the Republican leadership appear to be unconcerned with fulfilling President Trump's campaign promises, specifically the border wall. Carlson said that Trump's top campaign priority that allowed him to defeat 16 Republicans and Hillary Clinton was the promise to "build that wall" on the southern border and strengthen immigration policies. Dobbs blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the Kentucky Republican spoke "dismissively" about the urgency to build the wall. In a Louisville radio interview, McConnell said the funding for the wall would "probably" not happen before the midterm elections.
