    The FCC will not take any action in response to complaints over a May 1 broadcast of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” in which the host quipped during his opening monologue that “the only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c— holster.” The FCC received thousands of complaints following the broadcast. In response to an inquiry, an FCC spokesman provided a statement on the status of its review. “Consistent with standard operating procedure, the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau has reviewed the complaints and the material that was the subject of these complaints,” the FCC statement said....

    Holy congressional probe, Robin! Former FBI chief Robert Mueller is the hero America needs to investigate Russia’s meddling into the 2016 presidential election, his former second-in-charge said Sunday. “A line in New York would be Batman’s back to save Gotham, but I think in this case, Batman is back to save America,” Timothy Murphy told John Catsimatidis during an interview on “The Cats Roundtable.” Murphy served as the agency’s deputy director under Mueller, who was named as a special counsel in the investigation this week, following James Comey’s ouster as FBI director. Murphy insisted any investigation headed by his old...

    ... after he calls for Trump's impeachment (headline continued) During a town hall meeting on Saturday, Congressman Al Green played recordings of threatening voicemail messages left for him after he demanded the impeachment of President Donald Trump on the House floor earlier this week. "You'll be hanging from a tree," one caller said. The calls use graphic racial slurs, some calling Green the n-word. "You ain't going to impeach anybody. Try it and we will lynch all of you," said a caller. The Houston Democrat was the first member of Congress to call for Trump's impeachment from the House floor...

    Auntie Maxine Waters is at it again! Thursday on MSNBC Rep. Maxine Waters told MSNBC President Trump there is evidence of Trump collusion with the Russians. There isn’t. Maxine Waters says Putin was behind the “Lock her up!” and “Crooked Hillary” phrases. “ Maxine Waters: I really do believe that a lot of what you see coming out of Trump’s mouth was a play from Putin’s playbook. I think that when you saw him absolutely calling Hillary ‘crooked’, the ‘lock her up, lock her up!” all of that was developed. I think that was developed strategically with people from the...

    ALPINE — Utah will lose perhaps its most visible member of Congress when Rep. Jason Chaffetz leaves office before his fifth term ends to pursue a job in the private sector. The conservative Republican announced Thursday that he would resign effective June 30, saying it's time for him and his wife, Julie, to move on from that part of their lives.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham is calling on James Comey to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee about his dinner with Donald Trump. Graham said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday that the testimony will be necessary to “clear the air” in light of Trump’s tweets that he may have secretly recorded the conversation. The dinner between Trump and Comey took place at the end of January, just a week after Trump was sworn in as president. However, he also blasted Trump for the tweet and said he should refrain from commenting on the Russia investigation any further. “You can’t...

    In conversations with multiple advisers, conducted on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, officials described to CNN a sense of dejection within the West Wing ranks, where most aides were caught off guard by Trump's decision and had little ability to develop a cogent response. Even Vice President Mike Pence, who found his public statements again undercut by Trump himself, was "a little rattled" at the events of the week, according to an administration adviser. Through it all, Trump has remained largely out of sight, not leaving the White House once since he returned late Sunday night. He grew...

    Moscow (AFP) - Russia's interior ministry said Friday that some of its computers had been hit by a "virus attack" amid reports of major cyber strikes across the globe. Ministry spokeswoman Irina Volk told Russian news agencies it had "recorded a virus attack on the ministry's personal computers controlled by a Windows operating system." "The virus has been localised. Technical work is under way to destroy it and renew the means of virus protection," she said.

    SANFORD, FL—A newly formed health insurance company owned by a group of devoted Calvinists announced that they will not cover any health condition, since every condition of humankind was pre-existing and established by sovereign God before the foundation of time. The company, Total Deductibility, states clearly in its bylaws that “pre-existing conditions may not be covered, which include every possible ailment and so-called ‘accident,’ all of which God foreknew and predestined to occur prior to the existence of the client’s policy, and time itself.” The firm was thrilled when the new GOP health care law, which drops the requirement to...

    Video Poor convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti. He just can’t catch a break. Barghouti keeps convincing his fellow terrorists to go on hunger strikes for him, while he tells them he will be doing the same for their shared cause. In this case the cause is more cable TV channels, extra family visit time, and the right to earn advanced Israeli university degrees In reality, when Barghouti thinks no one is watching, he’s busy noshing. After Barghouti instigated this latest hunger strike he was placed in solitary confinement, and unbeknownst to him, the IPS (Israel Prison Services) placed hidden cameras...

    The liberal media is still coming to grips with how Hillary Clinton could have possibly lost to Donald Trump. After all, she is the “smartest woman” in any room she enters. Or at least that’s what The Hill’s Amie Parnes told host Charlie Rose on his PBS show on Wednesday night. Rose invited on Parnes and Roll Call columnist Jonathan Allen to promote their new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” and asked the two to dissect the reasons for Clinton’s loss. For her part, Parnes cited Russia, James Comey and lack of enthusiasm by Bernie Sanders voters. Not...

    Although the Trump administration's new healthcare bill has yet to pass the Senate, Hollywood stars have already vowed revenge on the GOP. On Thursday afternoon, the House voted narrowly (217 to 213) to repeal Obamacare and replace it with the American Health Care Act. Immediately, celebrities condemned the "felons," accusing them of "entitlement," "fraud" and "hypocrisy." Many urged resistance, while actor Ron Perlman even threatened California's Republican House members. Read a collection of the worst tweets social media posts below: Several celebrities, including Olivia Wilde and Amy Schumer, also sounded alarms over the fact that the AHCA would defund Planned...

    Prince Philip took a lighthearted view on his retirement today as he joked: 'Well I can't stand up for much longer'. The Duke of Edinburgh made himself and a crowd of guests roar with laughter while with the Queen at an Order of Merit service at St James's Palace just an hour after announcing he will stop all public royal duties at the age of 95. Mathematician Sir Michael Atiyah was left in hysterics after stopping him to say: ‘I’m sorry to hear you’re standing down’, to which the Duke replied: ‘Well I can’t stand up much longer'. His well-earned...

    Sometimes crossed signals can result in communication that go horribly and, in the case of comedian Chris Rock, hilariously wrong. What made the misunderstanding so funny is that it happened at the final White House party hosted by President Barack Obama. And the person with whom the signals were so horribly/hilariously misunderstood was First Lady Michelle Obama.  Chris Rock revealed what happened on the May 2 Tonight Show while recounting the laugh error to host Jimmy Fallon.

    The older a person gets, the less surprised by people they tend to be, or can be. Then along comes Richard Dreyfuss – a man I thought was a liberal actor and maybe he is, in the classic- liberal sense anyway. Here Mr. Dreyfuss is on Tucker Carlson’s show, ostensibly to debate Tucker. It didn’t happen, though, because Tucker didn’t disagree with a word Mr. Dreyfuss said. Watch below: Mr. Dreyfuss is concerned about: The constitution Civics lessons in school Political correctness killing the war of ideas What a refreshing interview. Here is a link to Richard Dreyfuss’ civics initiative....
