    Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu, who is in the midst of a war with Hamas, is flying to the United States to speak to a joint session of Congress. Kamala Harris, as President of the Senate, is supposed to preside. She is declining to do so, and has also declined to even meet with the Israeli Prime Minister. Disgraceful: Kamala Harris’ first official act as the presumptive Democratic nominee for President of the United States is to snub the leader of America’s key strategic ally, the Jewish state.Kamala Harris would be a total disaster for the US-Israel relationship.— RJC...

    The European Union announced Monday that it has cancelled plans to mark Europe Day in Israel, after the Israeli government selected National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir (Otzma Yehudit) to represent the Jewish state. In a statement released by the European Union’s mission to Israel, the EU said it would not “offer a platform” to someone with values antithesis to those of the 27-member union. “The EU Delegation to Israel is looking forward to celebrating Europe Day on May 9, as it does every year. Regrettably, this year we have decided to cancel the diplomatic reception, as we do not want...

    The head of the Chinese diplomatic mission in Tokyo sent a request to meet Kishida in late January on the eve of his departure. However, the head of the Japanese government refused, citing a difficult work schedule. This incident is exceptional. As a general rule, the Japanese prime minister does not avoid audiences with the heads of foreign diplomatic missions before his departure from Japan. To alleviate the situation, Kong Xuanyu was received by the Japanese Foreign Minister, Yoshimasa Hayashi. According to some reports, when the Japanese ambassador in Beijing left his post and returned to Tokyo, he was not...

    The White House refused to comment on why President Biden has not spoken with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis prior to Hurricane Ian making landfall Tuesday. Biden has spoken on the phone with multiple Florida mayors ahead of the storm but has so far snubbed the popular Republican governor. Reporters repeatedly pressed FEMA chief Deanne Criswell on why Biden hadn't made the call during a White House press briefing Tuesday. "In the past, President Biden has made calls to [Republican] governors in situations like natural disasters, [such as] Kay Ivey in Alabama, Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas or the governor in Texas,"...

    Google opted against highlighting the 78th anniversary of D-Day on its search engine’s “Google Doodle” on Monday, choosing instead to present an animation celebrating the birthday of Angelo Moriondo, the investor of the espresso machine. “Today’s coffee-stained Google Doodle is in honor of Angelo Moriondo, the Italian innovator who created the espresso machine,” noted 9to5Google of the search engine’s accompanied espresso-themed animation. The Masters of the Universe completely ignored that June 6 is also the anniversary of the D-Day invasion, a pivotal moment of World War II

    Margaret Thatcher was the daughter of a greengrocer who rose to become Britain’s first female prime minister, won three national elections, oversaw an economic revolution at home, and faced down the U.S.S.R. -- earning her the moniker “The Iron Lady” from the Soviets. She didn’t, however, meet the mark for Hillary Clinton’s book on gutsy women. The former secretary of state, who failed in her 2016 bid to become America's first female president, is out with a new book, “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly not be accepting the Queen's invitation to stay at Balmoral. The royal couple are understood to think that Archie is still too young to make the trip up to Scotland. Her Majesty always asks her family to join her when she heads to her Scottish estate for her two-month summer break. A source told The Sun: 'Harry and Meghan had no plans to go to Balmoral this summer as they felt Archie was too young.

    In the battle unfolding in Congress between the Democrats and Attorney General William Barr, I’m on the side of the United States Constitution. That means defending not only Mr. Barr but also President Trump. The two men stand on America’s legal bedrock. Which is why Mr. Barr was able to make short work of his Democratic questioners at Wednesday’s hearing in the Senate. His calm, straightforward testimony made it clear that he isn’t the caricature the Democrats have been drawing of him. And events aren’t the conspiracy the Democrats are still trying to validate, even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s...

    Some U.S. House Democrats on Thursday said they might seek to invoke a dormant congressional power to impose fines on Attorney General William Barr after he refused to provide them with an unredacted copy of the Mueller report. Discussion of using their “inherent contempt” power came after Barr also refused to appear at a House of Representatives Judiciary Committee hearing meant to delve into his handling of the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “Congress’ power will not be abdicated. We will enforce it,” Democrat Ted Lieu told reporters in remarks that reflected a growing view among some Democrats that...

    There may be empty seats at this weekend's White House Correspondents' dinner following a late-in-the-game boycott ordered Tuesday by the White House. The boycott comes weeks after news organizations invited White House staff and other administration officials to join their tables at the ritzy annual gathering at the Washington Hilton, where tickets cost $300 per seat. "The President and members of his administration will not attend the White House Correspondents Dinner this year," a White House official told the Washington Examiner in an email. "Instead, Saturday evening President Trump will travel to Green Bay, Wisconsin where he will hold a...

    The White House Correspondents' dinner, enthusiastically called “nerd prom” for years by Washington journalists looking for champagne and selfies, is sobering up, with next week's gala drawing few celebrities, no president, and now no press secretary. As if to rub in the lost luster of the event, instead of the usual comedian, a historian will serve as the "entertainment." President Trump, snubbing the dinner a third time to host a rally, diverted top aides from the gala, while a faction within the White House Correspondents’ Association nixed the comedy routine, resulting in the least glitzy gathering in decades. C-SPAN hasn't...

    You might think Joe Biden got caught coming out of an Asian massage parlor in Florida. Not that there is anything wrong with it, as Seinfeld would say. It’s only a problem, as with Patriots owner Bob Kraft, if you allegedly get caught inside on a police camera ordering the works, which is illegal. In most cases, it is a misdemeanor. Joe Biden is not Bob Kraft. For all the accumulating pictures and reports of the former vice president interacting with women, Biden was prone to give massages rather than get them.

    1 Nov 20181,555 BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox say they haven’t decided whether they will visit the White House if invited by President Donald Trump. Manager Alex Cora said Thursday he wants to use the platform he has as a World Series champion in the right way. A native Puerto Rican, Cora has been outspoken about the need for help on the island since it was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The traditional White House visit has become increasingly partisan, with some players declining to make the trip because of their political views.

    Few first ladies have been more prepared for their close-ups than Melania Trump. Yet the former model has not graced the cover of Vogue, Glamour or Cosmopolitan during her husband’s first 20 months in office. Neither has she yukked it up with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel or other late-night TV hosts. That’s a huge missed opportunity for the Trump White House, says Lauren A. Wright, lecturer in politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. Others insist Mrs. Trump’s low pop culture profile smacks of media bias that extends to other women in the Republican administration. “[Mrs. Trump] has this toolkit...

    Remember Ted Kennedy in 1987 claiming that if the Senate confirmed Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, “women would be forced into back-alley abortions [and] blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters?” Not vitriolic. How about the 1991 “high-tech lynching” by Senate Dems of Clarence Thomas? Again, not vitriolic. Or the infamous NAACP dragging-death ad of 2000 in which George W. Bush was accused of killing the victim all over again? Nope, not vitriolic. No, the political vitriol didn’t begin until 2008. And it was Sarah Palin’s fault. That is, if you believe CNN, and, apparently, John McCain. This morning,...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral. Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony. McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed to People that Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family. The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice...
