    Houston: Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called on US President Donald Trump to speak out against the murder of Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who was killed after 51-year-old Adam Purinton opened fire at two Indians in a Kansas City bar last week. Ms Clinton, who unsuccessfully contested as the Democratic candidate in the US Presidential election against Mr Trump, tweeted:(TWEET-AT-LINK) President Trump is yet to comment on the incident which left Kuchibhotla dead and injured two others. Mr Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer, however, last week said that it was too early to describe the incident as...

    On November 9, the day after the election, I had an annual appointment with my OB/GYN, whom I've seen for more than 15 years. It was such a weird day — I was walking around in shock and disbelief that Donald Trump had just been elected President of the United States. I'd voted for Hillary Clinton and had cried myself to sleep watching the results roll in. In the middle of the night, I'd woken up in a panic, sure that Trump winning was just a nightmare. While lying on the exam table that afternoon, I started a conversation with...

    A prediction: when the “Wall” along the southern border begins to be constructed, the left’s professional activists will implement an extensive disruption campaign. It will be modeled after the Keystone Pipeline protest (that involved a makeshift city of 10,000), but be more mobile and flexible, spread out along the border that marks the path of the wall. Protestors will stand in the path of construction, just at activists have, in the past, chained themselves to trees in the Northwest to stop logging. At night, other operatives will target the Wall for destructive sorties. Those may occasionally include the use of...

    A few days ago, Tim Pool visited a “No Go Zone” in Malmo, Sweden to document the present-day immigrant crisis. Upon doing so, he gained awareness of the critical issues in Malmo, attracting death threats along the way. Sweden’s decision to grant mass entry to immigrants has not served them well. The migrants have reportedly engendered most of the shootings and rapes throughout the land and those who dare to discuss the dangers they face are at risk of imprisonment. The situation is quite catastrophic.

    The Trump administration plans to propose a one-forth to cut the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget, a plan that would end up laying off 20 percent of the agency’s staffers, according to reports. Trump officials will propose a $6.1 billion for the EPA next year, a $2 billion cut from current levels, according to reports in E&E News and Politico , citing sources. The agency’s staffing levels would fall to 12,000 workers, from 15,000 currently, according to the reports. An EPA spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill. The proposed spending levels at the EPA...

Angus King, I-Maine, joining 51 Republicans to vote "aye." Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., did not vote due to his ongoing recovery from back surgery. The Senate later voted 67-31 to move forward on the nomination of Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., to lead the Interior Department. A final vote on Zinke's confirmation could occur on Tuesday or Wednesday. Ross is the 14th member of Trump's Cabinet to be cofirmed, with...

Both Democrats and the Establishment Media see it as yet another opportunity to try and challenge and embarrass the president. The anti-president mood will be unprecedented. Remarkable...

    You may recall from the 2016 campaign trail that many of our media mavens lectured then candidate Donald Trump about his plans to bully our NATO allies into paying their fair share of defense costs. This was widely viewed in liberal circles as an unreasonable attitude, with some even suggesting that it could discount America’s place as a global leader. It turns out that, yet again, President Trump decided to make good on his promise when he sent his new Secretary of Defense across the pond to deliver precisely that message.

What’s the one thing that bothers you about him?” The Fox host, who agreed with Hewitt’s assessment that Trump has kept his campaign promises so far, said that it might, in fact, be the president’s stick-to-itivness that has hurt him. Hannity said Trump is “not a perfect person.”...

    On Friday, The Forward published an article by Lili Bayer arguing that Sebastian "Seb" Gorka, the deputy assistant to President Trump and a frequent presence on television and radio, was linked to anti-Semitic right-wing extremists in Hungary. Using the logic of six degrees of separation, Bayer argued that Gorka was anti-Semitic, never mind that the 3,000-word report did not cite a single instance of Gorka's alleged anti-Semitism. The whole piece smacks of a political hatchet job. Eli Clifton, a blogger fired by the Center for American Progress — the think tank at the heart of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, and...

    Donald Trump is one month into his presidency. For his supporters, every day is Christmas. Cabinet picks under the Christmas tree. Executive orders in the stockings hung by the chimney with care. Democrats gnashing their teeth and pulling out their hair. Are all Republicans happy? Surprisingly no. Republicans, particularly self-described conservatives, should celebrating. To start with, he is doing exactly what he said he would do, following through on campaign promises. Unlike most GOP members of Congress. And long overdue, a Republican punching back at a biased and agenda-driven media. Music to Republican ears, a president calling out CNN as...

    In a meeting between the new president and law enforcement officials, a Texas sheriff complained about legislation that would require a person be convicted of a crime before the state took ownership of his or her property. President Donald Trump, wrongly, disparaged legislators who support this reform to the forfeiture system. Politico notes the exchange: “On asset forfeiture, we’ve got a state senator in Texas that was talking about introducing legislation to require conviction before we could receive that forfeiture money,” [Sheriff Harold] Eavenson said. “Can you believe that?” Trump interjected. “And I told him that the cartel would build...

    Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wrote a 3,500 word letter to President Donald Trump in which he slams the new administration’s restrictions on immigration and US “dominance” of the United Nations. […] … Ahmadinejad, who during his tenure as president threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” and publicly suggested the Holocaust was a hoax, chided Trump over his recent executive order temporarily restricting immigration from seven high-risk countries, saying the US must “value respect toward the diversity of nations and races.” Ahmadinejad went on to argue that the United States “belongs to all nations”, suggesting the US has no...

    POLITICISING HATE CRIME Wrong to blame Trump for racial killing It is tragic that an Indian engineer was shot dead in the US in what appears to be a racial hate crime. The killer (a Navy veteran) shouted, "Get out of my country", before he shot the victim and injured another Indian. American laws are strong enough to deal with such incidents and one must hope that the murderer will be punished sooner than later. It would be wrong, however, to generalise that hate crimes against Indians, or non-whites, are becoming part of the American DNA. Let us not forget...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hailed President Obama’s stimulus program on Sunday, telling ABC’s “This Week” that within one month of Obama’s inauguration, “he signed a bill which saved or created 4 million jobs.” Pelosi invoked the controversial $832-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to unfavorably compare President Donald Trump to former President Obama at the one-month mark: “What has the Trump administration done from their inaugural address, where they talked about decay and carnage? They've done nothing except put Wall Street first, make America sick again, instill fear in our immigrant population in our country, and make sure...

    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...
  • For White House Counterterror Adviser, Media Attacks Are Latest Theater of Battle (Gorka)

    Gorka said the goals for the new Trump administration's counterterrorism program and policies are simple. "As the president said [Friday] we will ‘obliterate' groups like ISIS and wipe the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism from the face of the earth," he said. The media attacks prompted friends and supporters of Gorka on Capitol Hill and in the military and special operations community to voice their support. "The bottom line is Sebastian Gorka's work is a necessary tool for all special operations forces in developing critical thinking," said an Army special operations officer familiar with Gorka's counterterrorism lectures in Tampa, Florida,...
