    Will that be one state or two? Pres Trump told PM Netanyahu in their joint press conference on Wednesday, he that “likes the one both parties like.” He also said on another occasion that he wasn’t going to pressure Israel to make a deal. The importance of his remarks is that the object of the exercise for the US is to make a deal rather than to create a Palestinian state. The push back on this has been substantial, not only from the EU and the UN but also from some officials in the State Department. To deflect some of...

    Kansas Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is hoping the federal government can rescue several critical infrastructure projects that the state can no longer afford.The Brownback administration recently sent what amounts to a wish list to President Donald Trump for inclusion in his planned infrastructure initiative. It includes the following $240 million in highway and bridge projects delayed or abandoned because of the state’s ongoing budget problems: $50 million to replace a section of the Lewis and Clark Viaduct that carries Interstate 70 across the Kansas River between Kansas and Missouri.$91 million to build an I-235 interchange in Wichita.$45 million to reconstruct...

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump named Alexander Acosta as his new nominee for secretary of labor — the same man who cut a sweetheart plea deal with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 2008. Acosta, while working as the top federal prosecutor in Miami, agreed not to file any federal charges against Epstein — who was accused of having sex with dozens of underage teen girls — in exchange for him pleading guilty to state charges of soliciting prostitution and soliciting a minor for prostitution. The infamous pedophile had been accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network....

    MADISON -- A new audit shows huge cost overruns at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, with dozens of projects costing double or triple their original estimates. The Legislative Audit Bureau report finds that estimated costs for 19 major projects completed between 2006 and 2016 were $1.5 billion, double the initial projection. The audit also finds that the estimated costs of 16 ongoing major highway projects have increased by $3.1 billion. "When you see a department that you can say is so poorly managed, it`s stunning. It`s absolutely stunning," said state Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, R-New Berlin. Auditors said, in some cases,...

    President Donald Trump reportedly isn't adjusting well to life in the White House after his first month in office. That's according to Axios' Mike Allen's latest newsletter, in which he writes that a Trump adviser told him the president is experiencing "cabin fever" in the White House. Trump is reportedly experiencing headaches and frustration that he can't spend his evenings dining at restaurants like he could around Trump Tower in his old neighborhood in New York City.

    Organizing for Action, the activist group that morphed from Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest President Donald Trump’s agenda. Last week, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros. Politico earlier this month profiled Indivisible in an article titled, “Inside the protest movement that has Republicans reeling.” The news agency not only left out the Soros links, but failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly...

The grant provides a significant part of the money required to install a $2-billion electrical power system on the Bay Area’s Caltrain commuter rail system, allowing the rail to retire its diesel locomotives.

    Louis J. Marinelli is a man on a quixotic mission: to help California secede from the United States and become an independent country. Surprisingly, this quest has been going relatively well of late. Marinelli's group, Yes California, is attempting to collect 585,000 signatures necessary to place a secessionist question on the 2018 ballot. Buoyed by California's already tense relationship with President Donald Trump, the campaign has received a large amount of press coverage and support over the past few months. But for the 30-year-old Yes California president, there remains one annoying problem: People keep asking him why he lives in...

    President Donald Trump widened his search for a new national security adviser this weekend amid concerns in Washington that the forced resignation of Michael Flynn leaves the White House unprepared to face any sudden foreign policy crisis. Flynn’s short tenure ended when he was asked to resign after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his pre-inauguration calls with the Russian ambassador. Trump interviewed several candidates to replace Flynn on Sunday, according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. “He did several interviews and in-depth meetings that are still ongoing as of this afternoon talking to different candidates for the national security...

    After decades as the crossroads of prairie populists and checkbook conservatives, Iowa has suddenly become solidly Republican like many of its Midwestern neighbors. It was one of four states — along with Kentucky, Missouri and New Hampshire — that flipped to complete GOP control in the November election, but Iowa’s rush of new legislation has been the most intense. In an all-night session last week, Iowa lawmakers approved a bill similar to one enacted in Wisconsin six years ago that strips most public sector unions of long-held collective bargaining rights, including health insurance.

    Remember during the presidential campaign when then Senator Barack Obama made public a video outlining Senator John McCain's role in the Keating Five scandal. Bringing up McCain's role during the campaign wasn't just about his past. Rather, his role in that scandal had possible implications to the present financial crisis. The video shows McCain as someone who helped out a constituent, Charles Keating, while — just like today — taxpayers got stuck with the bill. Just what is the Keating Five scandal? Senator John McCain was one of five senators accused of corruption in 1989 in the Savings and Loan...

They smashed windows and looted military recruitment offices.Since then, the so-called black bloc protesters have become a force in the Bay Area and beyond.

In the eyes of President Donald Trump, Flynn could be his team's first casualty of "fake news." As Trump told reporters at his epic press conference Thursday, he asked for Flynn's resignation because Flynn didn't tell Vice President Mike Pence that he may have discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador during the transition period. Pence then told CBS' "Face the Nation," that of course Flynn had...

Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy.

People have poring over every word and gesture of the meeting in Washington between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump The encounter offered an opportunity to discover not just the new American policy toward Israel but also to get the measure of this unsettling president. However, the back story told rather more about Donald Trump than was on display at the love-in...

    Psychological decompensation refers to the loss of mental stability and self-control due to the failure of overtaxed coping mechanisms to handle stress. The term decompensation is typically applied to breakdowns in individuals who are psychologically fragile in the first place. For minds burdened with a fallacious self-image, unrealistic life expectations, or a distorted view of reality, heightened stress overwhelms the already brittle ego defenses, and raw psychic pain and rage flows unrestrained. The election of President Trump has triggered a rage decompensation across the left wing, causing disgusting, dehumanizing, and violent expression to break out. The categories of left-wing caterwauling...

    The United States and the international community have never recognized Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Heights. Israel asked the United States to recognize its sovereignty over the Golan Heights during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s three-day visit to Washington, in which the Trump administration affirmed the unbreakable bond between the two countries. The prime minister brought up the issue of the Golan both at his meeting with Trump at the White House on Wednesday as well as with Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday. After the meetings, Netanyahu told reporters that the US leaders’ response was “not Earth shattering.” According to...

    he two-state model is widely viewed as the formula for Middle East peace. But the fact of the matter is that it makes peace impossible to achieve, by holding normal relations between Israel and its Arab neighbors hostage to grandiose peace deals. When they met on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin were both walking wounded. Netanyahu arrived in Washington the center of a criminal investigation the chief characteristic of which is that selected details of the probe are regularly leaked to the media by anonymous sources who cannot be challenged or held to account. Be the...

    On today’s Fox News Sunday, Rush Limbaugh said that “embeds” by former President Obama and Hillary Clinton in the “deep state”—the permanent bureaucracy—are “absolutely” behind the leaks about ties between the Russians and the Trump campaign. Rush added that “the left, which is run by Obama and Hillary and the hierarchy of the Democrat party, is doing everything they can to undermine, sabotage, and to prevent Trump from implementing his agenda. There’s no question about it.” View the video here.

    Exclusive: Larry Klayman demands FCC pull license from 'Communist News Network' My column will get right to the point. CNN, which has morphed from the “Clinton News Network” to the “Communist News Network” under the stewardship of its ultra leftist, Harvard-educated, 5-foot-6-inch dwarf of a president, Jeff Zucker, was sued today before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The complaint, which is self- explanatory, is excerpted below. "Freedom Watch and its Leftist Media Strike Force hereby respectfully demand regulatory enforcement action against CNN to fine, discipline and revoke any and all licenses from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for CNN, or...

    The U.S. Supreme Court will decide three cases in coming months that could help or hinder President Donald Trump's efforts to ramp up border security and accelerate deportations of those in the country illegally. The three cases, which reached the court before Democratic President Barack Obama left office, all deal broadly with the degree to which non-citizens can assert rights under the U.S. Constitution. They come at a time when the court is one justice short and divided along ideological lines, with four conservatives and four liberals. The justices will issue rulings before the end of June against the backdrop...

    Climate Change: U.S. output of so-called greenhouse gases continues to decline, a new report shows. Even so, global warming activists are likely to be disappointed. The drop has nothing to do with their pet cause, alternative energy. That's right. The Environmental Protection Agency's yearly greenhouse gas emissions report noted that after rising slightly in 2013 and 2014, greenhouse gas output fell in 2015 — the most recent full year for which data are available. OK, but maybe it was a one-year fluke? Hardly. First off, the drop was significant in size — 2.2% on an annual basis, far too big...

    How’s that #Resist hashtag workin’ out for ya’, Democrats? Not that your hysteria levels would permit any de-escalation, but really, the American people are sick of your frenzied inability to accept the verdict of the election. Jonathan Easley reports for The Hill on a new poll it exclusively published: A strong majority of Americans say Democrats should look to cooperate with President Trump to strike deals, according to the inaugural Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively by The Hill. The survey found that 73 percent of voters want to see Democrats work with the president, against only 27 percent who said Democrats...

    Here’s what a lot of people don’t grasp about Donald Trump. That includes professional observers, in and out of DC. Trump brings a storm with him wherever he goes. It’s noisy, flashy, and fierce. It looks chaotic. But at the eye of the storm is Donald Trump, knowing what he wants to accomplish and where he and his storm are heading. It’s easy to brand Trump a disruptor. But that’s lazy. Trump most certainly disrupts, but it’s not without cause. He just doesn’t blow through the countryside leaving huge messes in his wake. Simply put, Trump unmakes to remake… to...

    An Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest President Trump’s policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers supporting those policies even harder this week, when they return home for the congressional recess and hold town hall meetings and other functions.
