    Donald Trump, Jr. appears to be the latest figure in President Donald Trump’s inner circle to be caught in the giant web of the Great Kremlin Conspiracy. Trump the younger said he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, but that all he got in his June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer was an earful about dropping the Magnitsky Act, which sanctions Russian officials involved in the death of a Russian lawyer who was killed in detention. If the Trump, Jr. meeting is just another chapter in the Beltway telenovela about Trump selling out America to the Russians through an...

    Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday said he does not believe North Korea’s new ballistic missile capability brings the United States "closer to war" with the country, but he asserted that the U.S. military "remains ready" for any conflict. "I do not believe this capability in itself brings us closer to war because the president's been very clear, the secretary of State's been very clear, that we are leading with diplomatic and economic efforts," Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon.

    Homelessness and crime » Assault on baseball player, fatal hit-and-run are the latest examples; House speaker asks if it’s time for extraordinary measures. News is spreading across the country on the state of homelessness in downtown Salt Lake City — and it isn't pretty. Just over the Fourth of July holiday, a professional baseball player was attacked and suffered a concussion. And a car plowed into a group of homeless people on a sidewalk, killing one and sending five others to the hospital. These are just the latest in a string of events that continues to frustrate officials, police and...

    Adding insult to injury: Breitbart News, the pro-Trump media outlet that is scorned by many in the mainstream press, has been fact-checking their mainstream counterparts with some success. Breitbart’s Washington political editor Matthew Boyle was first to call into question a CNN story on alleged ties between a Trump associate and Russia that was later retracted. Boyle was also reporting on an error in an Associated Press report when the newswire corrected and later rewrote the story. Together, the corrections and retractions amount to only a few stories out of the thousands published every day. But the high-profile nature of...

    A doctor who apparently harbored a longstanding grudge opened fire with an assault rifle at the New York City hospital where he used to work Friday, killing one and injuring several others before taking his own life, according to police sources. In the wake of what New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called a "horrific" instance of what appeared to be workplace violence just before 3 p.m., the suspect, Dr. Henry Bello, who hid the AR-15 under his white lab coat, tried to set himself on fire and then shot himself in the head at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, the...

    Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson talked to FOX News' Shannon Bream about "transactional journalism" and how "well-funded actors" with "fake accounts" on social media try to manipulate news and the way we think. Attkisson's new book The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote focuses on reporters and news outlets "suspending the normal rules of journalism" that circulate news to make you think this is what everyone else is thinking.

    The reporter who lashed out at the Trump administration on Tuesday said Wednesday that reporters have to stand up and fight President Trump's effort to dismiss the media, and said he blew up at spokeswoman Sarah Sanders because he "can't take it anymore." "For the government to sit there and undermine essentially what [are] very essential checks and balances in the system, it's disheartening, it's unnerving," said reporter Brian Karem, who writes for Playboy, on MSNBC. "I can't take it anymore," he said. "We are bullied and browbeaten every day, and I pretty much have had enough of it," he...

    It’s increasingly difficult to keep up with the plethora of depraved leftists losses. Now almost a daily basis as they wring their gnarled fingers waiting for victory tomorrow, the proverbial dawn that doesn’t arrive. The CNN confession today confirms what informed people have preached. Those not blinded by the fanaticism of a wildly failed ideology with unprecedented religious ferocity. Where mindless cliches reign supreme with steel-booted thuggery on the neck of reason. That altar they bowed to without question in weeping acceptance arrogant is all based on the pablum sheep crave. The acknowledgement of their self-worth suffering, the answer that...

    A wellness center connected to a church founded by Illinois Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush has received $650,000 in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017, public records show and has pulled in more than $15 million in grants since 2008. Rush, who was first elected to Congress in 1992, founded the Beloved Community Christian Church, a non-denominational church located in Chicago, in 2002. (snip) "I founded a church in Englewood, one of Chicago's poorest and most fragile neighborhoods, and named it Beloved Community Christian Church," Rush wrote in a 2011 op-ed published in the Huffington Post.

    President Trump has submitted to the Senate the nomination of Christopher Wray for FBI director, the White House announced Monday night. If confirmed for a 10-year term, Wray would replace James Comey, who Trump fired in May. (snip) Wray, 50, a white-collar criminal defense attorney, previously led the Justice Department's Criminal Division during two years — 2003 to 2005 — of President George W. Bush's administration. In private practice, Wray's most recent work, he represented New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the "Bridgegate" scandal, in which two of Christie's aides were given prison sentences after closing down the George Washington...

    A member of the House Freedom Caucus on Friday called on the Justice Department's special counsel, Robert Mueller, to recuse himself in the federal probe into Russian election meddling. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Az) said the "integrity of his appointment" was in question due to Mueller's friendship with ousted FBI Director James Comey. "His ability to be impartial is doubtful because he has surrounded himself with highly partisan lawyers who make a special practice to line the coffers of Democrats," the freshman Republican lawmaker said in a statement, referencing attorneys Mueller has hired who have Democratic political leanings.

    President Trump may make significant changes to White House press briefings. The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the president is considering limiting the number of briefings to once a week. It also alleges he’s thinking about requesting reporters submit written questions to the White House in advance. That same day Press Secretary Sean Spicer held his first on-camera briefing in more a week amid rumors he may be replaced in a staff shake up. While Spicer did not deny a potential departure, he did confirm the office of communications is looking to fill vacancies.

    After MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance confronted Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on Friday's Real Time show, demanding that he retract an article from last April which accurately highlighted Nance "nominating" a Donald Trump property for a terrorist attack, actor Mark Hamill was so impressed with the liberal MSNBC analyst that the Star Wars icon praised him on Twitter and dubbed him a "Jedi master." After MSNBC's Joy Reid highlighted Hamill's tweet on her AM Joy show on Sunday, Hamill also threw some Twitter praise toward the far-left MSNBC host. At 11:46 a.m. ET on Sunday's AM Joy, host Reid excitedly...

I have noticed a trend in the media over the last two years that I find disturbing and that is the claim that certain politicians are narcistic or sociopathic for disagreeing with liberals on issues. the moist disturbing part of this is that usually there are three types of people making theses...
