    President Trump is considering ousting both White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen Bannon, Axios reported on Friday. Aides and advisers to the president told Axios that, while Trump is considering a major shakeup in the West Wing, it's not clear when it would happen or if Trump will "pull that trigger." "Things are happening, but it's very unclear the president's willing to pull that trigger," one top aide said. Firing them both would be an enormous upheaval for the young presidency, which has yet to hit its 100-day mark. Axios did not say who could...

    The establishment media would like Americans to believe that after the implosion of the Ryancare bill there is an unbridgeable rift between conservatives and President Trump, but the facts are quite the opposite. In our article “The Deal Breaker In #Ryancare” we reminded President Trump that in his book The Art of the Deal he offered the following advice about negotiation, “What you should never do is pay too much, even if that means walking away…”.

    While the White House has been careful to exude an air of confidence ahead of this afternoon's critical for the Trump administration healthcare vote, it should come as no surprise that Trump is preparing a Plan B "just in case", and as expected, Bloomberg confirms that behind the scenes Trump is planning to blame Ryan in case of an embarrassing defeat this afternoon. As reported last night, Trump’s senior strategist took the unusual step of traveling to Capitol Hill to deliver an ultimatum: take the vote on Friday, win or lose. Ryan had been carefully trying to build a majority...

    Nancy Pelosi is nothing, if not inane. She is, of course, the former Speaker of the House who infamously said of ObamaCare, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” –– ADVERTISEMENT –– And who can forget the time she claimed that “500 million people will lose their jobs each month until we have an economic package" ? Which is a pretty neat trick since there are roughly 300 million people living in the U.S. So, it is understandable that Pelosi’s latest statement was met with the usual eye-rolling. She all but accused...

    RUSH: The big controversy today… I first got wind of this last night. There’s a headline out there CNN has an “exclusive.” This is not quite fake news, but it’s almost as bad. “FBI Refused White House Request to Knock Down Recent Trump-Russia Stories.” Now, first let me tell you what “the Trump-Russia stories” are. There are three of them. The first from the New York Times last October, in which nameless sources told the New York Times that agents of the Trump campaign were in contact with Russia during the campaign and discussing ways to sabotage the Hillary campaign....

    A former spokesman for the Department of Justice says that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus must resign in the wake of revelations that he had called the FBI to ask them to publicly deny a story about the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian intelligence officials. Appearing on Chris Hayes’s show on MSNBC, ex-DOJ spokesman Matthew Miller said that anyone in the Obama administration would have been fired instantly for doing anything close to what Priebus did.

    Senior adviser to the president Stephen K. Bannon discussed the three most important goals the White House is working towards at CPAC 2017: homeland security, economic nationalism, and "deconstruction of the administrative state." "Every business leader we've had in is saying not just taxes, but also the regulation," Bannon said. "I think the consistent, if you look at these Cabinet appointees, they were selected for a reason and that is the deconstruction-- the way the progressive left runs, is if they can't get it passed, they're just gonna put in some sort of regulation in -- in an agency. That's...

    White House Deputy Chief of Staff and #NeverTrump Republican Katie Walsh has been identified as the source behind a bunch of leaks from the Trump administration to The New York Times and other media outlets, according to multiple sources in the White House, media, donor community, and pro-Trump 501(c)4 political group. “Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press,” says a source close to the president. “The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or...

    Former Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon has been on a PR tour denouncing an article from his former publication attacking Reince Priebus, but a source with extensive knowledge of Breitbart told The Daily Caller Wednesday that Bannon agrees with the premise of the story. The Breitbart story published Tuesday cited multiple sources close to President Trump and attacked Priebus for the botched rollout of Trump’s travel ban, the slow confirmation of the president’s cabinet appointees and claims the White House chief of staff is allowing “sleeper cells” of former Obama administration officials in Trump’s government. After the story attacking Priebus...

    After GOP establishment forces inside President Donald Trump’s White House forced out National Security Adviser retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, sources close to the president confirm to Breitbart News there is serious doubt as to whether this early administration shake-up will also see the exit of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. Specifically, multiple sources close to President Trump with internal knowledge of White House operations told Breitbart News on Monday night that the buck stops with Priebus when it comes to the botched rollout of the executive order temporarily banning most travel to the United States from...

    Reince Priebus is the White House Chief of Staff. No one is closer to President Trump. Mike Cernovich is an author and filmmaker far removed from the Administration. Why has the media written more hit pieces about me than about Reince? The media isn’t barking at Reince. Why?Fans of Sherlock Holmes will recognize the dog that didn’t bark allusion, which comes from The Adventures of Silver Blaze, a story involving the murder of a horse trainer and the disappearance of race horse.Police initially suspect a stranger stole the horse, which Holmes considered curious as a guard dog was never heard barking during...

    Washington, it must be said, is an ugly town. To some people this may come as a surprise. Those of us who have been here for any extended period of time know it to be full of snakes and worms and scrambling back-biters all looking for ways to climb ahead of the other guy. When President Harry Truman said anyone in the nation's capital who wanted a friend "should buy a dog," he was only scratching the surface. It wasn't that long ago, for example, that someone whose opinion I respect and who generally seems to be plugged into what...

    In one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump effectively halted nearly $200 billion worth of regulations, according to a new analysis.President Trump has taken aggressive action to curb regulations in his first week, promising to cut 75 percent or "maybe more," and signing an executive order Monday to cut two regulations from the books when every new rule is introduced.The first move came in the form of a memo to all federal agencies from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, freezing all recently finalized and pending regulations.
