    The CIA, NSA, DNI and FBI were compromised. It was actually these corrupt pieces of the U.S. apparatus of State that led the coup and solicited foreign nations to play a role, so this was a wise—but completely unexpected – move by Trump. That’s his specialty, and that is what will save him.

    Republicans Storm the Gaetz – Thirty House Republicans Demand Transparency and End To Impeachment “Star-Chamber” Secrecy… Earlier today thirty republican members of the House of Representatives stood up and said they’ve had enough of the ridiculous schemes behind the Pelosi, Schiff and Lawfare plan to conduct an impeachment inquiry without transparency and sunlight. With House democrats shredding the rules, procedures and historic norms in a transparent political scheme, apparently the GOP is finally starting to fight back. Some righteous indignation was expressed during a press conference. WATCH: Video of REpublicans Storming Schiff's Star Chamber today MORE AT LINK

    A group of House Republicans made waves Wednesday morning when they successfully shut down a House Intelligence Committee hearing by entering the room where committee members were questioning Laura Cooper, a Defense Department official, who apparently was pertinent to the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. One of those members was Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL), who reportedly engaged in a back-and-forth with Democrat members of the committee, including House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Rep. Val Demings (D-FL). During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” on Wednesday, Byrne dismissed the claim of...

    Today is not only the grey morning after the election the night before, but also the fifth anniversary of a terrible savage act in the heart of Canada's capital. The photograph at right shows Corporal Nathan Cirillo of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (the Princess Louise's) on the last weekend of his life. Megan Underwood and her friend (standing next to the corporal) were visiting Ottawa from California and, passing the Cenotaph, asked if they could have their picture taken with the "very handsome guard". Corporal Cirillo died a few days later - October 22nd 2014, five years ago today....

So why are you eating a bowl of ice cream with a side of cookies?

"And our brain has not evolved as quickly as the food choices that have become available." And that brings us...

    High-placed federal law enforcement sources dropped a bombshell, claiming the renewed push to impeach the president is rooted, in part, in President Trump’s move to pull the United States out of the conflict in Syria — and stop untold millions in dirty cash from flowing into the deep state’s pockets. “This isn’t about the Kurds, it’s about the cash,” one FBI source said. And that cash is no chump change; it’s millions and millions of dollars flowing into the coffers of crooked politicians and deep-state pockets worldwide.

    For curators of a blockbuster Leonardo da Vinci exhibition which is opening today, it's been a nerve-racking few days. A total of 140 works by the greatest artist — who perhaps also possessed the greatest mind — in history were being brought together to commemorate the 500th anniversary of his death in 1519. Da Vinci was the ultimate Renaissance man. By the time of his death, aged 67, he had become an expert in countless areas: drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, palaeontology and cartography. And the centrepiece of the Louvre show in...

    Editor's note: Sports Illustrated has released a statement regarding the Astros' response to this story. The Astros initially declined to comment for this piece. After this story was published, the team released a statement in which they did not deny Brandon Taubman’s comments, and insisted he was ‘supporting the player during a difficult time.’ Multiple journalists have corroborated Sports Illustrated’s reporting. HOUSTON — More than an hour after José Altuve won the Astros the pennant, the party in the Houston clubhouse still raged. Rightfielder Josh Reddick was crushing vodka Red Bulls. Starter Gerrit Cole smoked a cigar. Shortstop Carlos Correa...

Kirill Tereshin, 23, injected his muscles with highly dangerous synthol and developed huge, Popeye-like arms. But his ridiculous 24-inch biceps could not help him defeat blogger and actor Oleg Mongol at a gym in Abakan in Russia.

    Fatty acids found in baked goods and takeaways may put people at greater risk of dementia. Trans fats, which are used to make cakes, biscuits, margarines and fried food, are not banned in the UK, although they are not commonly used. Japanese researchers have now linked these fats to dementia, in a study of more than 1,600 people over 60. Estimating people's consumption of trans fats using blood tests, they found those with the highest levels in their body were 52 per cent more likely to get dementia. Evidence suggests trans fats may cause harmful inflammation and the build-up of...
