    CNN ^ | Oct 2019 | Kara Alaimo
    On Friday, ITV news released a clip from an upcoming documentary which showed Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, holding back tears as she acknowledged the challenges she's faced as a newlywed and mother in the spotlight. "Thank you for asking. Not many people have asked if I'm OK, but it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes," she said, before confirming, in the words of her interviewer, that she "isn't really OK." It's no surprise that Meghan is struggling. Our society's lack of concern for the well-being of new moms is terribly disturbing — and it's even...

    American Thinker ^ | October 16, 2019 | Richard Jack Rail
    Everybody thought we had to keep our troops around so the Turks wouldn't invade Northern Syria and kill off all the Kurds. Everybody wanted them to negotiate with the Kurds and figured the only way to do that was little by little, by getting allies to reason with Turkey and hem and haw and maybe buy her off as in times past. Meanwhile, we had to keep the two ancient enemies, Kurds and Turks, apart. Negotiations would ever happen only if our troops stayed. Trump saw the situation differently. As beautifully laid out by Sundance at Conservative Treehouse, removing our...

    Notes of Rudolph Giuliani's interviews with two former Ukrainian prosecutors include one's allegation that then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko warned him against investigating energy firm Burisma Holdings “as it was not in the interest of Joe and/or Hunter Biden.” The prosecutor was later fired, under what President Trump says was pressure from Vice President Biden. His son Hunter had a lucrative role on the Burisma board. Viktor Shokin: "it was not in the interest of Joe and/or Hunter Biden.” The notes were published by a Ukrainian news site, and their authenticity was confirmed by Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, and by...
  • FLASHBACK: Tom Brokaw called out Biden corruption — in 2008!

    Former vice president Joe Biden faces increased scrutiny on his son Hunter’s shady business deals in the Ukraine and China, but it’s not the first time the Bidens’ conflict of interest has caused problems in a presidential campaign. More than a decade ago, Tom Brokaw asked Biden to his face about a different arrangement with a Delaware credit company called MBNA, which hired Hunter on a six-figure salary and paid then Sen. Joe Biden hundreds of thousands more in campaign contributions to win his favor. Tom Brokaw calling out Joe-Hunter Biden’s corruption in 2008: “Wasn’t it inappropriate for someone like...

    US pharmaceutical companies are luring Mexican residents across the border to sell their blood for up to $400 a month. The blood donors are using tourist visas to enter the United States and make hundreds of dollars by donating plasma up to twice a week. Out of a total of 805 blood plasma donating sites in the United States, 43 are located near the southern border. The border centers generate twice the amount of donors on a weekly basis than the rest of their counterparts in the rest of the country, according to ProRepublica. Companies, such as Spanish-based Grifols, which...

    CBS News has learned the full contents of what appears to be a memo written by the whistleblower one day after President Trump spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July. The memo, dated July 26, is based on a conversation the whistleblower had with an unnamed White House official who listened to the call. According to a source familiar with the matter, the memo was among the factors that led the intelligence community inspector general to determine the whistleblower's formal August 12 complaint was credible. The inspector general testified Friday behind closed doors before the three House committee leading...

    A fundraising effort launched by the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party in Minnesota on Monday appears to betray some fears that the state could flip red in next year's presidential elections. A series of tweets by the Minnesota DFL saw it admit that the "Trump campaign is staffing up in Minnesota in ways we’ve never seen before, and frankly we just can’t keep up." "Trump and the GOP already have over two dozen staffers on the ground, and are promising more, and they have already trained over 600 volunteers in Minnesota!" it added.

    It is not for the Speaker and her adjutants to decree that there is an inquiry. ‘The House of Representatives . . . shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” It’s right there in black-and-white: In article I, section 2, clause 5, our Constitution vests the entirety of the power to call for removal of the president of the United States in a single body — the House. Not in the Speaker of the House. In the House of Representatives. The institution, not one of its members. To be sure, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a very powerful government official: second...

    Candace Owens warmed up the crowd of several hundred African-Americans, predominantly young. She was her usual fiery and fact-filled self. Here, she denounces CNN and other media who lied about last year’s Summit, falsely describing those who participated as “paid puppets.”Press coverage of this year’s Summit was predictably warped, as well. Jake Tapper is perhaps the best of the feeble Washington press corps, but like the others he is loyal to his party. His comment on the Summit was a foolish, snarky tweet to which Candace responded appropriately: Candace Owens ✔ @RealCandaceO Today I spoke at the White House about...

  • The Whistleblower May Not Be A Whistleblower At All

    The latest media mass hysteria over a whistleblower’s complaint is based on precious little information. That has not stopped journalists from convicting President Trump in the court of public opinion and predicting his imminent demise. Who exactly is this unidentified “whistleblower”? What is the specific nature of his or her “urgent concern” complaint against the president? Does this complaint really qualify under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA)? These are just a few of the most fundamental questions that remain largely unknown. Despite the paucity of facts, some reasonable observations and conclusions can be drawn: 1. It appears that...

    North Carolina’s political maps for the state legislature are unconstitutional and must be redrawn before the 2020 elections, a court has decided. A panel of judges struck down the maps Tuesday, in a 357-page ruling that focused on the level of political partisanship used to draw them. The maps were drawn in 2017 to replace previous maps, drawn in 2011, that had also been ruled unconstitutional. Both sets of maps were drawn by North Carolina’s Republican-led legislature. The judges found that “The North Carolina Supreme Court has long and consistently held that ‘our government is founded on the will of...

The answer that has presented itself in recent years has been to live in a permanent state of outrage. To find meaning by waging constant war against anybody who seems to be on the wrong side of a question to which the answer has only just been altered. ---- The interpretation of the world through the lens of ‘social justice’ and ‘identity group politics’ is probably the most audacious and...

    The Justice Department inspector general is preparing to release a report on the conduct of fired FBI Director James Comey in the Trump-Russia investigation, according to a number of sources with knowledge of the situation. The specific timing of the report's release is not clear. The Comey report is separate from a larger inspector general report on the DOJ's handling of the Trump-Russia probe. That report, sometimes referred to by Republicans as an investigation into "FISA abuse," is expected to be released later. It is not clear why the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, chose to write a separate report on...

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) — made up of Secretary Clinton and eight other senior federal officials — approved Rosatom’s purchase of mining company Uranium One’s U.S. assets in fall 2010, even as the FBI was gathering evidence that the Russian company’s American arm was engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion.

    At this point I am going to be discrete, other than to say that contact was re-established with Men in Black (I avoid using the “F” acronym for reasons that will become clear). Why do I say, “re-established”? Because twice, over the decades, I have had the honor of helping them. Why would a (flag-waving) libertarian ever help feds? I will explain: I had a great friend named Brian Williams. In 2002 he was murdered. I helped bring the killer to justice, in a manner of speaking. Numerous sensationalist TV reenactments have been made, which should all be skipped. A...
