  • A Fox News Host Attacks Trump, and Some Viewers Bristle

    New York Slimes ^ | 8/16/2017 | Michael Grynbaum
    Fox News, television’s equivalent of a presidential safe space, kept up its steadfast defense of President Trump even as he faced an uproar this week over his response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Virginia last Saturday. Anchors like Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson praised the president and lauded his bare-knuckle criticism of the news media. But notably, some pundits broke ranks. Eboni K. Williams, a host of the 5 p.m. show “The Specialists,” derided Mr. Trump in exceptionally blunt terms, calling his initial remarks about the rally “cowardly and dangerous” and accusing the president of minimizing...

    The circumstantial evidence is mounting that the Kremlin succeeded in infiltrating the US government at the highest levels. How else to explain a newly elected president looking the other way after an act of Russian aggression? Agreeing to a farcically one-sided nuclear deal? Mercilessly mocking the idea that Russia represents our foremost geo-political foe?

    Former Obama administration official Anne Patterson raising concerns Opposition is mounting on Capitol Hill and in conservative foreign policy circles over Defense Secretary James Mattis's efforts to hire a former Obama administration official who lobbied in favor of engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood and spearheaded efforts to criticize Israeli counter-terrorism efforts, according to multiple sources close to the Trump administration. Mattis is lobbying to hire former diplomat Anne Patterson as undersecretary of defense for policy, according to multiple reports, a position that would make her the third most powerful voice at the Defense Department. Multiple sources on Capitol Hill and...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded an apology from U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, if his reported comments about Turkey's "mistakes that paved the way for the rise of the jihadists" were true. "If Biden told these words, then he will be history for me. I never uttered such remarks," Erdogan said after the morning prayer for Eid al-Adha--the festival of sacrifice observed by Muslims all over the world--in Istanbul on early Oct. 4. "President Erdogan told me, he is an old friend, said you were right, we let too many people through, now we are trying to seal...

    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan admitted mistakes that paved the way for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). "President Erdogan told me, he is an old friend, said you were right, we let too many people through, now we are trying to seal the border," Biden said during a speech on foreign policy at Harvard Kennedy School on Oct. 2. While speaking to the students for nearly an hour and a half, Biden defended the U.S. foreign policy, stressing that the White House was not late...

    A retired United States Army colonel expects as many as 30 million like-minded individuals will descend on Washington, DC this week and demand that President Barack Obama and other members of his administration be booted from office. Those are just some of the demands that Col. Harry Riley, founder of “Operation American Spring,” said he’ll ask the Obama administration to adhere to when militia members and patriots of all sorts arrive in the nation’s capital on Friday and begin demonstrating against a government the group considers to be in violation of the principles established by the founders of the country....

    Andrew, the fellow in the ad is Daniel McNaughton, a 22-year-old student at Valencia Community College in Orlando, Fla., who is, of all things, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in computer science. Turns out that signing up for a health-care plan via the federal exchange isn’t quite as easy as the ad made it out to be. According to the Orlando Sentinel, McNaughton successfully enrolled after attempting to sign up at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 2, and credits his success to the fact that “a lot of people were asleep.” McNaughton, who interned for Democratic state senator David Aronberg in...

    The American Thnker ^ | August 5, 2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State's sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell's besmirching of the Republican Party's "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Creţu. So it's safe to say...

    FULL TITLE: Revealed: How Christmas Day bomber's exploding underwear failed to detonate... because he had worn them for THREE WEEKS The notorious underwear bomber who tried to bring down a jumbo jet on Christmas Day had a dirty little secret - he'd been wearing the explosive skivvies for weeks. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab wore them for three weeks to be exact, and it may have been the reason why he was unsuccessful in his 2009 terrorist plans aboard a Detroit-bound airliner. The new details were revealed by two FBI agents who played a role in securing a confession from Abdulmutallab, shortly...

    U.S. Senate hopeful Scott Ashjian will avoid being arrested on felony charges of theft and writing bad checks after he paid $5,575 to cover a bounced check and court fees. The Tea Party of Nevada candidate told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday that his campaign would release a statement regarding all of his legal woes today . "The bottom line is, I did pay money on a stop payment check, it wasn't an insufficient funds claim like (the complaint that) was issued," Ashjian said. "At the end of the day, the facts will come out." Chief Deputy District Attorney...

    Parent Blows Whistle on Teacher Promotion of Obama Internship The parent of a Perry High School student in Massillon, Ohio, set off a firestorm in his community and in the blogosphere when he gave Pamela Geller, of AtlasShrugs.com, a copy of an internship application provided to his 11th-grade daughter's government class the last week of January. The information packet, emblazoned with the Obama presidential campaign logo, was from DNC-funded Organizing for America (OFA), the successor organization of Obama for America. The student's father, identified as "Chuck," told Geller that the teacher offered no Republican Party internship equivalent to students. The...

    Diplomacy: Russia's nondemocratic rulers over the years have shown an uncanny knack for detecting weakness in their foes. Russia's Vladimir Putin is continuing the tradition.President Obama no doubt believes he was dealing with honest brokers when he agreed with Russia's leaders to cut U.S. and Russian nuclear warheads to about 1,600 each. For the U.S., that's a cut of about a third. But please read the fine print. This is a "preliminary" agreement. In order for it to go into effect, Russian leaders say they want the U.S. to give up its plans for a missile defense system. To do...

    President Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba's Communist government. Obama sat mostly unmoved during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the fifth Summit of the Americas here. Later, at a photo opportunity with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama held his tongue when asked what he thought about Ortega's speech.

    Chris Matthews, the usually garrulous host of “Hardball” on MSNBC, has quietly signed a new long-term contract to remain with the cable network through the next election, signaling that he had quit entertaining any plans to run for a Senate seat. The deal is for at least four years. Financial terms were not disclosed, and neither side would confirm whether MSNBC had won a reduction in salary for the host, as it had been reported to be seeking. Previous reports put his annual salary at about $5 million. One executive involved in the negotiations said, “Whether he took a slight...

    President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter. The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks. Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks. Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual...
