    Religion is playing a big role in Hillary Clinton's post-election tour. What does she have to gain from sharing her faith now? Hillary Clinton wants to preach. That's what she told Bill Shillady, her long time pastor, at a recent photo shoot for his new book about the daily devotionals he sent her in her during the 2016 campaign.

    **snip**Sources described an investigation that has widened to focus on possible financial crimes, some unconnected to the 2016 elections, alongside the ongoing scrutiny of possible illegal coordination with Russian spy agencies and alleged attempts by President Donald Trump and others to obstruct the FBI investigation. Even investigative leads that have nothing to do with Russia but involve Trump associates are being referred to the special counsel to encourage subjects of the investigation to cooperate, according to two law enforcement sources....the President's attorney, Jay Sekulow, said, "President's outside counsel has not received any requests for documentation or information about this.

  • Who Gives the SPLC the Right to Designate Who is a Hater?

    Today, we have liberal groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center designating any group THEY choose as a "hate group" and once issued, the media, politicians, and others repeat that designation as if it has genuine validity. Exactly who is the arbiter of hate designations in the United States? Did the SPLC have to somehow qualify as to how to spot "hate" and assure their designations are 100% accurate and that partisanship is not used to politically smear one while looking the other way on a like-minded other?

    President Donald Trump held the door open to a reversal of his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord on Thursday, but did not say what he would need in return to persuade him to do so. Trump, who has made few friends in Europe with his rejection of the 2015 Paris agreement and his “America First” trade stance, met with French President Emmanuel Macron as both leaders sought common ground to reset an awkward relationship. “Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords, let’s see what happens,” Trump told a news conference. “If...

    Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan admits the only reason for being in the Paris Climate Treaty was to get money from the U.S. and other more wealthy nations.  Now that the U.S. has pulled out of the treaty, there’s no reason to expect the financial benefits. Proving yet again, for the eleventyth time, that the entire construct of the Paris Climate Treaty had nothing to do with the actual climate (ie. weather), and everything to do with economic wealth distribution. (Reuters)  The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal...

    Ten states, 125 cities, and 1,100 businesses, universities and organizations insist “We are still in” – committed to the Paris climate agreement and determined to continue reducing carbon dioxide emissions and preventing climate change. In the process, WASI members claim, they will create jobs and promote innovation, trade and international competitiveness. It’s hype, puffery and belief in tooth fairies.Let’s begin with the climate. When Delaware signed on to WASI, for example, Governor Carney cited rising average temperatures, rising sea levels, and an increase in extreme weather events. In Delaware, sea level rise is almost entirely due to subsiding land resulting...

    One of my duties at Accuracy in Media (AIM) has been to expose left-wingers in the media and Congress who were soft on the old Soviet Union and are now acting like hard-liners on Vladimir Putin’s Russia. It is a fascinating topic which exposes the duplicity of the left-wing obsession with Russia. These people, who were soft on the Soviet Union and now hard on Russia, are the worst kind of hypocrites. Their hypocrisy is further demonstrated by the abundant evidence that the global warming or climate change theory, which they now embrace, was conceived by Soviet communists as a...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said on Sunday he believes the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling is just beginning. “We are far closer to the beginning of the investigation than we are to the end,” Schiff, who is the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on “This Week.” Schiff also cited Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s testimony to the Senate last week, where he confirmed that the president asked him to leave the room before a conversation with former FBI Director James Comey. Comey separately testified that during the conversation,...

    He loved them — and fleeced them. Queens assistant principal Michael Scaduto shacked up with a teacher he was supervising while cozying up to another teacher on his staff and then pressured each to give him $5,000 for a fictional homeless child suffering from cancer named “Tom,” according to school investigators. The Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools found the lying Lothario cashed in further when he convinced the father of the teacher Scaduto was living with to fork over $150,000 for a down payment on a house the couple bought together. *** With investigators at his heels, he...

    Yeah, this is why President Trump said  “We will cease honoring all non-binding agreements”, and “we will stop contributing to the green climate fund”.“I can not in good conscience support a deal that harms the United States”.“The bottom line is that the Paris Accord is very unfair to the United States”.“This agreement is less about climate and more about other countries getting a financial advantage over the United States”. The United States contributed $1 billion to the global Green Climate Fund, but the world’s top polluters contributed nothing, David Asman reported.via Fox news here div.wpmrec2x{max-width:610px;} div.wpmrec2x div.u > div{float:left;margin-right:10px;} div.wpmrec2x...

    Microsoft won a patent for augmented reality glasses that would provide a guiding voice at mealtime – whispering for you to consider grabbing a salad for lunch, rather than a greasy burger. The patent claims a device with image data would use a sensor to detect foods – and then provide feedback information to the user on the food's nutritional information. “A see-through, head mounted display and sensing devices cooperating to provide feedback on food items detected in the device field of view,” the patent abstract reads. “Feedback can include warnings based on personal wearer needs, general nutrition information, food...

    Take yes for an answer The Democrats and the liberal media are still pushing their dishonest rhetoric about what’s not in the Republicans’ American Health Care Act, and the damage it’s supposedly going to do to people. All lies! As I wrote on Sunday, pre-existing conditions are taken care of through a high-risk pool funded to the tune of $130 billion over 10 years. But the liberal media and Democrats keep pushing the lie that they are not covered. Scare tactics 101!

    Attendees of Fyre Festival thought they were paying for a one-of-a-kind experience when they purchased tickets to what promised to be a lavish affair. Technically, they weren’t wrong – but the unique experience which awaited ticket-holders on the Bahamian festival grounds was a bit different than the luxurious, supermodel-filled affair which they’d been promised. The new festival – run by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland’s Fyre Media company – made headlines upon its announcement through a sponsored content campaign promoted on Instagram by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, and Bella Hadid. However, what seemed to be a glamorous...
