    Joe Biden got nasty at times in a “tense” Zoom meeting with dozens of moderate Democratic lawmakers who called his viability on the presidential ticket into question on Saturday. Among them was Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO), a former Army Ranger who served three tours in the Middle East, who found himself on the brunt end of a personal attack from Biden after he asked about the importance of national security to voters in November, Puck reported. “First of all, I think you’re dead wrong on national security,” the president said to Crow. “You saw what happened recently in terms of...

    When President Biden took part in a Zoom call with lawmakers from the Congressional Progressive Caucus last weekend, an aide passed him a note that read, “Stay positive. You are sounding defensive.” Sources familiar with the call said Biden “intentionally” read the note out loud for a moment of levity during a call with anxious lawmakers. And on a separate call with centrist House lawmakers — which some sources described as “tense” — the president lashed out at Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.), Puck News reported Tuesday. “First of all, I think you’re dead wrong on national security. You saw what...

    President Joe Biden can’t help himself anymore, and Democrats will suffer the consequences if they don’t do something about it. The president is experiencing great difficulty with routine interactions that are necessary during a campaign. He is increasingly confused and combative, particularly when faced with criticism.

    On the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said the threat of foreign terrorism still exists on U.S. soil due to a lack of security on the southern border. Putting a spotlight on current problems surrounding illegal immigration, the Republican presidential candidate told the Washington Examiner that he believes the border crisis "has made us more vulnerable to a terrorist attack." "I think that there is a good bet that somebody that's come across that [southern] border will commit an act of terrorism," he said. He noted that people from countries across the...

    Chris Beck described those who embrace and promote transgender ideology as a 'cult' that brings people into the fold through 'love bombing' and propagandizing. (LifeSiteNews) – A former member of SEAL Team Six who famously “transitioned” in an effort to become a woman a decade ago and who has since “detransitioned” is speaking out about the dangers of transgender ideology, manipulation by its proponents, and the grave harm it is doing to children and young people.

    The remains of an Army master sergeant from Indiana and a private first class from North Carolina were included in the 55 cases of remains of missing Korean War veterans turned over in July by North Korea, President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday. The two soldiers, both likely killed in action fighting Chinese forces in North Korea about 66 years ago, are the first positive identities that Pentagon officials have confirmed since the transfer was completed July 27 as part an agreement hashed out by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their summit June 12 in Singapore.

    Documents show that slain Navy Seal and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle misrepresented the number of medals he received. Navy documents obtained by an online magazine through an open records request show that Kyle earned one Silver Star and three Bronze Stars with valor. In his best-selling book, Kyle wrote that he had received two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars. A Navy spokeswoman confirmed the validity of the documents and says the armed services branch is investigating the discrepancy. The Intercept first reported the discrepancy and posted the documents. Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, didn’t immediately return a phone call...

    The true story of Garlin Murl Conner’s heroism in the face of a Nazi onslaught might have gone to the grave with the soft-spoken Kentucky farmer if not for a chance phone call from another military man trying to piece together the last days of his uncle’s life. ***snip*** The bravery of Conner, who died in 1998 at the age of 79, is well-documented. The first lieutenant, who was wounded seven times, earned an incredible four Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars, seven Purple Hearts and the Distinguished Service Cross for his World War II heroism. But it was what he...

    When Capt. Derek Herrera was called to stand in the place of honor Friday at his retirement ceremony, he pressed buttons on what appeared to be a wristwatch as a fellow Marine came to his aid. After another push of a button and three short beeps, Herrera rose, legs shaking, and walked deliberately toward his commander. With each step, the exoskeleton he wore emitted a robotic whirring noise, as though it were Iron Man striding through the cordoned off parking lot in digital camouflage. Herrera was paralyzed from the chest down in June 2012, when he was shot in...

Farrow has not apologized for the tweet On Wednesday, political reporter Mark Murray, whose wife works in the Obama administration, compared Remsburg's struggle to that of the President: "Obama's ending on Remsburg wasn't just a story about America -- it also was a story about Obama.

    A chaplain who was awarded the Bronze Star has spoken out about the tour – and what appears to have been misleading media coverage. In an interview with, Lt. Col. Jon Trainer, USAF, discussed the award and the PowerPoint presentation that has generated controversy. The presentation, which was titled, “Proper Handling and Disposal of Islamic Religious Material,” was written in the wake of the accidental burning of defaced Korans by American troops. The resulting riots when the news broke lead to 30 deaths, including two U.S. troops. Initial coverage of the medal in conservative media outlets lead former Congressman...
