    19 Aug 20181075 Netflixs Insatiable star Alyssa Milano railed against President Donald Trumps nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring that he will affect everything we know to be true as American citizens. Speaking alongside far-left pro-abortion activists including Lauren Duca, Cecile Richards, Jessica McIntosh, Jessica Morales Rocketto and Meagan Hatcher-Mays at the Los Angeles stop of the Rise Up for Roe tour, Milano described it as f***ing absurd that they are fighting to keep abortion legalized and called on people to mobilize against Kavanaughs nomination.

    Self-described "ass-kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat" MJ Hegar, a candidate for Texas deep-red 31st district, has a novel approach to environmental politics: she doesnt care if her supporters believe in man-made climate change, but says it's hard to deny the corrupting effects of petroleum dependence on American foreign policy. "Our dependence on foreign oil is just so damaging to our country on so many levels," Hegar told ABC News in a June interview. "I respect other peoples freedom to be discerning and to make their own decisions. But they cant deny that the U.S. military pays the price for our dependence...

    President Trumps Supreme Court nominee is walking into the middle of a political firestorm over his work for President George W. Bush. Access to paperwork from Brett Kavanaughs years as a White House lawyer and staff secretary for Bush has become a lightning rod in the nomination fight. The issue will take center stage as he sits down with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, this week. Both senators are expected to press Kavanaugh on whether he'll support releasing all of his Bush-era documents, which they say would...

    Veni, vidi, vici. Thats what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt. Delete almost and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trumps tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failedending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/18/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Four days after he disdainfully uttered the words “America was never that great” from a podium before an audience of feminists, Andrew Cuomo recanted the offensive declaration.  Despite 2 days of intense blowback, Cuomo was not able to force himself to utter the words, “Of course America is great.”  But he did so without providing any video, using a “conference call” to media. You can hear the recanting in this news report from New York City’s Channel 11, WPIX: The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle transcribes: During a conference call with reporters Friday, Cuomo dialed it back, saying he does...

    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...

    Democrats are leaving their party more in sorrow than in anger, but leaving it they are, sickened by the Democratic Partys hard left turn. Tens of thousands are telling their stories on the #walkaway movements public Facebook page. Their YouTube videos are a fascinating window into the innermost thoughts of kind, thoughtful people across Americaall former Democrats. My personal favorites are what I call nice ladies driven away by Democrat hate. During and after the election, many women stopped buying what the Dems are selling. They come from every generation, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and region of America. These women...

    North Korean authorities are calling for strengthened vigilance against non-socialist behavior in advance of a major national holiday, with ruling party youth groups deployed across the country to warn or detain citizens found wearing condemned fashions or hairstyles, North Korean sources say. The campaign follows earlier efforts aimed at suppressing lifestyles found not to conform with socialist ideals, a source in North Hamgyong province, bordering China, told RFAs Korean Service. Inspection units are being dispatched to public areas, RFAs source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. There have been crackdowns on non-socialist behaviors in the past, but since these hadnt...

    Cruel: A spokesman for a prominent Native American tribe is blasting uber-Left-wing politicians in deep blue coastal states for using onerous EPA regulations to deny his people the opportunity to coal, gas, and other forms of energy. The Daily Caller reports that officials in a small number of coastal states led by Washington are essentially denying Crow Tribal members the opportunity to earn a much better living. CJ Stewart, a Crow Tribal member and co-founder of the National Tribe Energy Association, told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Thursday that his people are dependent on producing energy to...

    A Chinese space force in Argentina, Russian control of Venezuelan gas and South American armies equipped with the latest Chinese and Russian hardware. Until recently, it might have sounded like the plot of a geopolitical thriller in a region once considered Americas backyard. But this is what Defense Secretary James N. Mattis faced on his visit this week to several South American nations, where economic and military posturing by Beijing and Moscow has been on the rise for the past decade. Analysts say Chinese loans in recent years have allowed authoritarian leaders to consolidate power in Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua,...

    Ms Jang Ka-yoon, a 27-year-old office worker in Seoul, had thought about leaving her home country after watching TV news reports on the worsened security situation upon threats exchanged between North Korea and the United States last year. Fluent in English, Ms Jang said she had imagined herself living in Canada or New Zealand, as both countries are known to have good environments for education and high living standards, if she had to choose to leave the country in case of an imminent war. Like Ms Jang, more young Koreans said they had considered seeking refuge abroad or emigration, amid...

    Well, New York, Democrat, Buffoon, Governor, Andrew Cuomo has verbally put his both feet in his mouth, in bad mouthing the "GREAT" American Republic in open forum. No massive dialogue is needed, this dude in not the sharpest knife in the drawer and he is not hitting on all eight cylinders in the brains department. I suspect the TV airwaves will be jam filled with his remarks being repeated millions of times over, in Republican TV political ads. Fact is: POTUS Trump & his GOP Trumpies, you better open eyes, ears and mouths, because there are plenty of political opportunities...

We are a great country and a great city we could even be greater, Johnson said in an interview on WNYC radio. Upstate Democratic Congressman Paul Tonko claimed ignorance. I havent heard about it, Tonko told Albanys WNYT TV.

    he Defence Department said Thursday that the Veterans Day military parade ordered up by U.S. President Donald Trump wont happen in 2018. Col.

According to the officials, roughly $50-million would cover Pentagon costs for aircraft, equipment, personnel and other support for the November parade...

    Starting August 23, an additional $16 billion dollars of exports from China to the U.S. will be subject to a 25% tariff, as the trade war between the two nations continues unabated. In preparation for these tariffs, China signaled that it would impose an equivalent amount of tariffs on U.S. imports. With both sides far apart, China has searched for alternative strategies to force a resolution of the deteriorating trade situation. Earlier this month, an article published in the Peoples Daily, an official newspaper of Chinas ruling Community Party, signaled Chinas intention to weaponize American corporations operating in the country....

  • Oil Politics: How Syrian Kurds Use Oil For Political Leverage

    RIMELAN, SYRIA Where does all our oil go to? my Kurdish driver asked as we drove past more than a dozen hefty trucks loaded with crude oil. The cargo convoy was heading to Syrian regime-held areas. Syrias seven-year civil war has left the Kurds with increasing power over the oil fields in their territory, adding yet another layer of complexity to the already complicated picture of the war-torn country. The Democratic Union Party (PYD), the main party in Syrian Kurdistan, took control of most Kurdish cities in July 2012. The takeover didnt involve fighting with Syrian regime forces as...

That's more than plenty of time to figure out whether someone is as racist, unethical, and mentally unfit as Omarosa claims the President is. But alas, all she did was build her career off of him...And that's all she can continue to do with her antics..
