    Vice President Mike Pence in a new interview repeatedly refused to say the words Black lives matter, instead saying that, "all lives matter in a very real sense." In an interview with Philadelphia outlet 6ABCAction News, Pence was asked if he would say Black lives matter in the wake of nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died last month after a former Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest for several minutes. Protests have called for widespread police reforms, as well as other racial justice issues. Let me just say that...

    More excerpts trickled out Thursday from John Boltons upcoming memoir of his time in the Trump White House, as the Department of Justice prepared for an emergency court hearing to block its release and a Trump adviser blasted the book as revenge porn. The nearly 600-page tome by Bolton who served as Trumps national security adviser between April 2018 and September 2019 is set to be released Tuesday, assuming the feds fail in their bid to keep it under wraps. Despite the efforts to keep a lid on it, several unflattering claims Bolton levels in The Room...

    In recent days, the media has taken to sounding the alarm bells over a “second wave” of coronavirus infections. Such panic is overblown. Thanks to the leadership of President Trump and the courage and compassion of the American people, our public health system is far stronger than it was four months ago, and we are winning the fight against the invisible enemy.While talk of an increase in cases dominates cable news coverage, more than half of states are actually seeing cases decline or remain stable. Every state, territory and major metropolitan area, with the exception of three, have positive...

    Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday that, with the exception of a few places, the United States is seeing strong drops in COVID-19-related hospitalization and mortality rates, attributing the vast majority of new cases to a surge in testing. Speaking at a White House roundtable, Pence said that increased cases of COVID-19 infections in some states were caused by a dramatic increase in testing. Our team has been working with governors over the past week. Were carefully analyzing those new cases, and we really believe that the vast majority of new cases is a reflection, as you said, of...

    In their final encounter during the transition following the 2016 election, Donald Trumps incoming national-security adviser surprised Barack Obamas outgoing national-security adviser. Susan Rice writes in her memoir that the Michael Flynn she was dealing with had nothing in common with the firebrand she had watched leading a lock her up chant against Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention a few months earlier. Flynn, a retired general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was respectful and subdued, eager for her advice. When Rice extended her hand and wished him the best of luck, Flynn asked her...

    State Department Inspector General and Deep State hack Steve Linick was fired on Friday night. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo fired the anti-Trump Obama holdover. Linick served as State Department IG since 2013 Linick played a role in the faux impeachment of President Trump over Ukraine. Linick requested an urgent meeting with Congressional Democrat staffers. During the meeting Linick handed over documents related to the Trump administration and Ukraine. The entire impeachment was a scam to divert attention away from the Biden Crime Family and Hunter Bidens pay-for-play with Burisma Holdings. Linick was an anti-Trump hack who should have been...
