    Steve Bannon responded to President Donald Trump's blistering assault by calling the president "a great man" and saying, "I support him day in and day out." Bannon, former White House chief strategist, made the comments on SiriusXM's "Breitbart News Tonight" show hours after the Trump administration unleashed a multi-tiered blitzkrieg of rebukes and condemnation against him for his explosive remarks in Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." But Bannon remained nonplussed and steadfast in his support of the president. "The President of the United States is a great man," Bannon said on Breitbart News...

    Anne-Marie Slaughter, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s director of policy planning, now denies she endorsed Today’s Zaman, the flagship newspaper of Fethullah Gülen’s Islamist cult. Here is a google cache record with Prof. Slaughter’s endorsement, and here is the page now, with Professor Slaughter’s endorsement excised. Professor Slaughter denies she made the endorsementThere are two possible explanations: (1) Professor Slaughter is being truthful, and Today’s Zaman simply made it all up. If so, this suggests that the ethics of Zaman and the organization which sponsors it are non-existent. (2) Professor Slaughter asked for the retraction only after learning about Today’s...

    A Pennsylvania woman said she recently opened a power bill showing she owed more to her local power provider than the gross domestic product of most of the world’s nations. According to the Erie Times-News, Mary Horomanski, she was shocked to see an outstanding balance of more than $284 billion with a monthly payment of nearly $30,000 due immediately.
  • The media are killing themselves with botched anti-Trump reporting

    ‘Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good,” legendary reporter Carl Bernstein recently claimed. Pretty good? If there’s a major news story over the past 70 years that the American media have botched more often because of bias and wishful thinking, I’d love to hear about it. Four big scoops recently run by major news organizations, written by top reporters and, presumably, churned through layers of scrupulous editing, turned out to be completely wrong. Reuters, Bloomberg and others reported that special counsel Robert Mueller’s office had subpoenaed President Trump’s records from Deutsche...

    So much for Hillary Clinton’s claim last March that “there is no classified material” on the private e-mail server she used for official business as secretary of state. A review by two inspectors general found that four of just 40 e-mails sampled (out of 30,000-plus) contained material that should have been marked “secret,” the second-highest classification level. And unlike material only later deemed classified, these e-mails were — at least, in effect — “classified when they were sent and are classified now,” according to a spokeswoman. Which is why the intelligence community’s inspector general referred the matter to the FBI’s...

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Monday night reportedly postponed an appearance before the House Intelligence Committee that was scheduled for Tuesday. The abrupt cancellation occurred following a report by Fox News that raised new questions about connections between the Justice Department and Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the infamous Trump dossier. Fox News reported that McCabe’s interview will be rescheduled for next week. The Justice Department told the network that the cancellation was due to a “routine scheduling error.” A Congressional source told The Daily Caller that the excuse is “very hard to believe.”

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is set to appear before the House Intelligence Committee later this month after his previously scheduled appearance was scrapped due to what Justice Department officials called a last-minute "scheduling error." Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters that he was "extremely troubled" by the postponement of McCabe's testimony and called the Justice Department's "scheduling error" excuse "not really believable." Insight from Robert Driscoll, former Justice Department official who served as deputy assistant attorney general under President George W. Bush. Video Special counsel needed to probe DOJ-Fusion GPS?

    CNN, in its daily effort to discredit President Trump, hastily published a leak from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee that turned out to be false. CNN initially claimed that someone emailed Donald Trump, Jr. a link to a Wikileaks DNC dump on September 4, 2016. CNN said this information was based on “accounts from two sources who had seen the email.” Those sources obviously were Democrat committee members or staffers; Donald Jr. testified about the email before the Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. CNN attributed significance to the email because it allegedly was dated September 4, nine days before the...

    The number of Twitter followers may have some intrinsic value in politics, and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona seems to be no exception to this rule. McCain tweeted Monday morning asking for assistance in gathering more followers to become one of the few sitting senators with at least three million followers. "We're only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M - spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!," McCain's tweet said. McCain's tweet seemed to have the opposite effect — he began steadily losing followers. As of this writing, McCain has 2,989,328, a big deficit from the...

    An iconic sports stadium in the Detroit area was supposed to meet its end on Sunday, but not everything went according to plan. Officials were supposed to conduct a partial implosion of the Pontiac Silverdome around 8:30 a.m., with a blast originally set to break the metal beams supporting the upper ring of the dome and causing the structure to fall to the ground. But after some blasts went off and a plume of smoke enveloped the former home of the Detroit Lions, the structure was still standing. City officials told FOX 2 Detroit the implosion failed, adding that "what...

  • Anti-LGBT politician resigns after being 'caught having sex with man in his office'

    An Ohio lawmaker who routinely touted his Christian faith and anti-LGBT views has resigned after being caught having sex with a man in his office. Wes Goodman, who is the Republican state legislator for Ohio, is married to a woman who is assistant director of an annual anti-abortion rally known as March for Life. The right-wing legislator, who pushed “family values”, was reportedly witnessed having sex with a man inside his office who was not employed by the legislator.

    It appears that crime is so low in Detroit that police are left trying to arrest each other. On the East side of Detroit, the 12th Precinct sent in a team of special ops officers to pretend to be drug dealers. At the same time, the 11th Precinct sent in officers pretending to a drug buyers. The rest will long be the subject of law enforcement legend. Sources say that both undercover teams pulled their guns in attempting to arrest the other and ordered the other team to drop to the ground. That is when the rest of the special...

    Kathy Griffin was booed by the crowd at her Dublin performance on Wednesday, November 8 after she mistakenly included Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. She stated it was nice “being in the United Kingdom,” and seemed genuinely shocked when the friendly crowd suddenly turned to her booing and catcalling. Griffin became so startled she had difficulty continuing with her routine, The New York Times reported. Most of the Irish people at the show in Vicar Street clearly believed Griffin, an Irish American, should have known better. She has been a frequent visitor there and visited her grandmother’s hometown...

    US District Judge Gloria J. Navarro said in court today that she made "an inadvertent mistake" in removing five potential jurors the defense wanted to keep. Navarro then acted to remove eight potential jurors the prosecution said they wanted to keep. Today there were 57 potential jurors in the courtroom, a group different from yesterday. A scratchy voiced Cliven Bundy addressed the potential jurors. "Good morning and thank you for coming. I appreciate it very much", Bundy said. Judge Navarro has informed potential jurors of the trial schedule, telling them to expect the trial to last into February of next...
