    Just a day after Chris Ruddy, Newsmax Media CEO, joined President Trump for a drink (Trump had a diet Coke, Ruddy had a scotch), the long-time friend appeared Sunday on CNN's Reliable Sources and unprompted, launched into an attack on the President's chief of staff, Reince Priebus, describing him as weak and incompetent.   Drinks two days ago...   Is Priebus on the out? And will Steve Bannon now become de facto Chief of Staff?

    Anti-Trump faithless elector Stephen “Chris” Suprun was expelled from a Texas police academy about six years ago for plagiarism, according to an anonymous source who attended classes with him. The GotNews crack research team previously revealed that Suprun runs a fishy 9/11 charity and paid for cheating website Ashley Madison’s “affair guarantee” while bankrupt, likely unemployed, and married with 3 young kids — while his wife worked a full-time job. We also revealed inconsistencies in his 9/11 story, a thread that was picked up by Texas local news after we investigated, and went viral. The source told GotNews that they...

  • Secondary Protocol? Paul Ryan Wants Trump Out, RNC Reportedly Redirects Funding To Down-Ballot Races

    Townhall ^ | October 9, 2016 | Matt Vepsa
    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Saturday told party officials to redirect funds away from nominee Donald Trump to down-ballot candidates, according to an official informed of the decision. In practical terms, the party will be working to mobilize voters who support GOP House and Senate candidates regardless of their position on the presidential race. That means the RNC will push Floridians who support both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to vote. Before today, the RNC wouldn’t have sought to turn out Clinton voters, leaving split-ticket voters for Senate campaigns to target. (Snip) On top...

    Just two months after voting to leave the European Union (EU), the UK has announced the construction of a “great wall” near its most porous border in Calais, to keep illegal migrants out. The UK’s southern border checks are conducted in northern France and attempted illegal crossing have more than quadrupled in recent years. UK Border Force guards on French soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show. The new 13-foot (4 metre) high wall will be built of smooth concrete, making it hard to climb, and will line the roads into the port town of...

After casting his vote in Texas’s primary at Houston’s West Gray Community Center, Cruz told reporters that after 11 states go to the polls today, he and Trump will shoot ahead in the delegate race. “I think tomorrow morning you’re going to see a clear choice with two candidates both...

    At the sin-nod, some faithful prelates have been speaking forthrightly about the satanic manipulation of the sin-nod that seems to be the aim of Vatican authorities, including the pope. Archbishop Tomash Peta of Astana likened the language of the Instrumentum Laboris to "the smoke of Satan". He spoke particularly of attempts to liberalize Holy Communion for those in adultery and to normalize sodomite acts. Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea also expressed concern at the obvious manipulation of the sin-nod. LifeSiteNews interviewed Cardinal Burke recently. Recall that he attended last year's sin-nod.

Most recently, Beck was quoted in a New York Times article on Wednesday dismissing Trump as a "schoolyard bully" who is not in touch with tea-party conservatives. The Times article was titled: "Donald Trump’s Act Seems to Be Wearing Out Its Welcome." Trump, no stranger to Twitter insults, lashed out at Beck on Thursday:

Don’t expect this to make many headlines. It doesn’t fit the liberal media narrative.

    Iraq's new president has snubbed the powerful incumbent Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki by nominating the deputy parliament speaker to form the new government. But the move raises fears of more infighting in the government as the country faces the threat of Sunni militants in the north. A member of al-Maliki's political bloc said 'we will not stay silent' over the decision. Hussein al-Maliki, Maliki's son-in-law said: 'The nomination is illegal and a breach of the constitution. We will go to the federal court to object to the nomination.'

Gates felt that while the US had laid out "many steps" to "guarantee Israel's

    Elizabeth Warren, President Obama's controversial choice to head the new consumer financial regulatory agency, skipped out of a House Oversight hearing before answering questions from two members of the committee, claiming that she had reached an agreement allowing her to leave at that time. But Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-NC, chair of the subcommittee holding the hearing, said no such agreement existed. “You're making this up, Ms. Warren,” McHenry fired back when Warren claimed she only agreed to come under the condition she could leave

      With Gingrich basically destroying himself already and Huckster out, the field is thinning fast.  The question is does it create room for someone new, or strengthen some element of the current field? Trump's full statement:"After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency. This decision does not come easily or without regret; especially when my potential candidacy continues to be validated by ranking at the top of the Republican contenders in polls across the country. I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to...

    I think it is. In the aftermath of September 11, we had no choice but to overthrow the Taliban, destroy al Qaeda's training centers and kill and scatter as many al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists as possible. We did that, brilliantly. Bin Laden escaped by the skin of his teeth, but al Qaeda has never recovered from that initial devastation. Since then, for going on nine years, we have pursued a somewhat half-hearted peacekeeping/democracy policy in Afghanistan. The Bush administration was right, I think, not to devote excessive resources to Afghanistan

    Washington- P.J. Crowley is abruptly stepping down as State Department spokesman under pressure from the White House, according to senior officials familiar with the matter, because of controversial comments he made about the Bradley Manning case. Crowley will step down as early as Sunday afternoon, the officials said, because White House officials are furious about his suggestion that the Obama administration is mistreating Manning, the Army private who is being held in solitary confinement in Quantico, Virginia, under suspicion that he leaked highly classified State Department cables to the website Wikileaks. Speaking to a small group at MIT

    Hosni Mubarak's departure from power does little to address the fundamental issues that brought protesters to Cairo's Tahrir Square for the past 18 days. In fact, their protests were never about Mubarak but about a sclerotic political system and an economic system that was full of cronyism and corruption. Mubarak sustained that system, but its backbone was always the Egyptian military. Mubarak nurtured the military, from which he came, and the military preserved him. Although the officers behind Egypt's 1952 revolution abandoned their uniforms long ago, Egypt's rulers have been generals in suits for decades.
