    Lots of readers have asked me recently about what are the most important stories that I have reported on Ukraine, Joe Biden, the U.S. embassy in Kiev and George Soros. Here is a quick cheat sheet of my columns on Ukraine that have garnered the most attention from my days writing at The Hill, starting with the April 1, 2019 column that started it all. 1.) Joe Biden’s 2020 Ukrainian Nightmare – A Closed Probe Is Revived Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about...

    Itinerary for a trip to Ukraine in August organized by the Atlantic Council think tank reveals that a staffer on Rep. Adam Schiff’s House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence held a meeting during the trip with acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, now a key witness for Democrats pursuing impeachment.

    Democrats are hailing testimony from senior State Department official Bill Taylor on Tuesday as their “smoking gun” to prove that President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine unless they investigated former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Rep. Lacy Clay (D-MO) tweeted, “I was in the room. Jaws dropped, heads shook in disbelief, this president and his enablers willfully put #NationalSecurity at risk to benefit his political campaign. This wasn’t just a smoking gun, it was a smoking cannon.” Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI) told reporters it was his “most disturbing day in the Congress so far.” However,...

    A U.S. Military Academy cadet who vanished last week has been found dead, officials said Wednesday. The body of 20-year-old Kade Kurita was discovered Tuesday night at the West Point military post in New York, where the four-year federal service academy is located.

Gen. Darryl Williams, 60th superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, said in a statement Wednesday. Kurita had been missing since Friday evening when...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — President Donald Trump is making his 14th trip to Pennsylvania tomorrow. Wednesday’s visit to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is for the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s conference. His return appearance at the conference in Pittsburgh is an official event, but it is reminiscent of his campaign stop here three years ago. “They tell me that a Republican can’t carry the state of Pennsylvania. Wait until they see what happens here,” said candidate Trump back then. “Wait’ll you see. I think we’re going to have a big, big victory right here.” As a political prognosticator, President Trump was...

    A top Missouri high school football team forfeited all wins from an undefeated 2019 season and the program's head coach was fired as part of self-imposed sanctions after it was discovered the squad was using an ineligible player wearing a different jersey. **SNIP** Cardinal Ritter self-reported the use of an ineligible player to the state’s high school sports governing body Tuesday, according to the Post-Dispatch. The issue stems from the school using a player who was supposed to be suspended for the first game of the season but played anyway using a different name. Junior Bill Jackson, who was ejected...

Article:Jessica Yaniv, a Canadian transgender activist, lost a court case she brought against estheticians who refused to wax her male genitalia. "Human rights legislation does not require a service provider to wax a type of genitals they are not trained for and have not consented to wax," the BC Human Rights Tribunal determined according to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms which represented five of the estheticians. Yaniv was found to have "engaged in improper conduct" including filing "complaints for improper purposes." The Tribunal...

    The Democrat-media complex exploded on Tuesday over testimony from Bill Taylor, a US diplomat to Ukraine who said he believed Trump withheld aid to Ukraine in order to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Biden crime family. Bill Taylor, the Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine started out on Tuesday with a 15-page opening statement that left Democrat lawmakers ‘gasping.’ Recall, newly released travel documents revealed that Adam Schiff’s staffer took a Burisma Group-funded trip to Ukraine 12 days after the ‘whistleblower’ filed a complaint against Trump and met with US Ambassador Bill Taylor. This smells...

    Although the administration prefers “peace to war,” U.S. President Donald Trump is “fully prepared” to authorize military action against Turkey, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday. In an interview with CNBC’s Wilfred Frost, Pompeo said the “world should know” that “where we see American interests at stake or fundamental norms around the world that need to be enforced, we’ll use all the powers that we have.” While the administration’s preferred measures were economic and diplomatic, he said, “In the event that kinetic action or military action is needed, you should know that President Trump is fully prepared...

    As Democrat Amy McGrath was laying the groundwork for her Senate bid, she attended a dinner hosted by the Kentucky chapter of a radical anti-Israel organization that has been tied to funding of global terror networks.

It’s a move that will allow people with a prior felony conviction to serve on juries in California for the first time. Prior to this, there was a law in California that excluded felons from jury service. Local media backed the legislation ... The state Assembly approved the legislation...
