    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spilled to Sirius XM host Howard Stern what former President George W. Bush said to her about President Donald Trump. CNN recapped Clinton’s wide-ranging interview Thursday, showing several highlights during a segment of “New Day.” Clinton spoke with Stern at length about the 2016 campaign and how she felt at Trump’s Inauguration in January of 2017. (RELATED: Ronan Farrow Says Hillary Clinton Gave Him The Cold Shoulder When He Exposed Weinstein) “You put on the best face possible,” Clinton began, adding, “You know, Bill and I are sitting with George and Laura Bush.

    On Nov. 11, 1983, seven House Democrats introduced a draft resolution to impeach President Ronald Reagan. They charged that the 40th president had committed a high crime or misdemeanor by "ordering the invasion of Grenada in violation of the Constitution," among other charges. One of the sponsors of that resolution, Rep. Henry Gonzalez, D-Texas, later introduced another measure to impeach Reagan over his role in the Iran-Contra affair. Both efforts failed and have become nearly forgotten episodes of American history.

    SALT LAKE CITY — Drug traffickers often use the post office and private shipping companies to send opioids, including fentanyl, to people across the country. Now, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., have introduced a bill to curtail the circulation of illicit drugs through the mail. The bipartisan legislation introduced Thursday would require the U.S. Postal Service to develop a comprehensive plan to combat the use of the mail in illicit drug distribution, identify areas for improvement, enhance coordination across departments and proactively meet new challenges

    Things turned spicy on Channel 9 this morning during a heated debate about Australian tennis legend Margaret Court. The panel on Sports Sunday was discussing how Tennis Australia (TA) handled its announcement yesterday it had invited Court to attend the Australian Open as a special guest to mark the 50-year anniversary of her incredible 1970 Grand Slam, when she won all four majors. In the same statement yesterday, TA also delivered Court a stinging backhand by saying it does not agree with her views that gay marriage should not be legal, which have “hurt and demeaned many in our community”....

    Destroying the lie from the national socialist left that ‘no one is talking about gun confiscation’.Joy Behar, Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rouke and Representative Eric ‘nukem’ Swawell (D-CA) epitomise the mendacity of the left in demanding gun confiscation while denying that they are demanding gun confiscation. Like many others of the national socialist left, they want to push for their final solution to the liberty problem while still pretending to be ‘liberal’, using all manner of soft sounding synonyms for the taking of the people’s property. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) loves to talk on this subject, but according to him, anyone...

    When did it become acceptable for everyone to bring their Stew Pet dogs to the mall? I just wanted some vegetables and chicken for dinner so I stopped at our mega mall here in San Jose and grabbed my chow at Sarko. Yum So, I am sitting there taking my first sip of my Diet Coke and I start to hear the whining of a little dog. Concerned, I look around and don't see it. Then this lady walks past me and she has two dinky dogs on a leash. I probably know the breed but, whatever. The dinky dork...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Tuesday attempted to dismiss a recent survey revealing her support has plunged nationwide in the 2020 Democrat presidential primary race. “It’s the same answer it’s always been. I don’t do polls,” Warren said during a campaign stop Knoxville, Iowa. “I’m out here fighting every day on behalf of working families.”

    Actress and activist Mia Farrow reacted to President Trump’s move to criminalize animal cruelty on Tuesday by resurfacing a photo of his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, posing with a dead leopard as part of a hunt in Zimbabwe that took place nearly a decade ago. The president on Tuesday signed H.R. 724, otherwise known as the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). It criminalizes animal torture, specifically “crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling live animals, and other abuses such as sexually exploiting them,” according to the Humane Society.
  • Economic Growth Accelerated to 2.1% Rate in Summer

    The American economy grew at a faster pace this summer than estimated earlier. Gross domestic product grew at a 2.1 percent annual rate for the third quarter, the Commerce Department said yesterday in its second estimate of economic growth. That is a substantial boost from the 1.9 percent in the earlier estimate. While businesses pulled back on investment in the summer, likely because of fears of sluggish global growth and uncertainty over the direction of trade and monetary policies, consumers remained confident and spending high, thanks to rising wages and extremely low unemployment.
  • IMPORTANT GEORGIA FREEP! Call Gov. Kemp to nix Loeffler, but appoint Collins to Sen. seat.

    Hey team Georgia, PLEASE take a moment to call the Governors office at 404-656-1776, and ask Gov. Kemp to appoint DOUG COLLINS to Johnny Isakson's Senate seat. NOT Kelly Loeffler. Kelly Loeffler is a moderate RINO sort, who is not a strong backer of President Trump. Doug Collins is a strong conservative who is a strong back of President Trump. As always, be polite, let them know of your strong opinion, and mention you voted for Brian (if you did) in the last election.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo was deluged with hate mail following the collapse of his $3 billion deal to build a giant Amazon headquarters in Queens — with many of the missives mocking the fact he’d been bested by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, The Post has learned. “You got outsmarted by a bartender … thanks,” Patricia Kaufman scolded the three-term governor, noting the 29-year-old socialist firebrand’s former occupation. Her email is just one of some 2,200 pieces of correspondence to the governor about the Amazon deal that The Post obtained through a Freedom of Information request. “What a dysfunctional scenario to unfold...

    I know what I am about to say will cause irate comments, but here it is – my 2-cents: I spent my young adult days at HK and 47 years in USA since then. I have seen a lot and I have my views of the current situation at Hong Kong, which is rather different from those held by the congress critters and many of my fellow US citizens. To my dismay, many US folks fall into the trap of the lame-stream media, despite the fact that they have been complaining about the disinformation and misinformation constantly spewed on the...

    ROME — Pope Francis blasted religious fundamentalism Monday, telling an Argentinian interreligious dialogue group that fundamentalism is a “plague.” “Beware of the fundamentalist groups: everyone has his own. In Argentina too there is a little fundamentalist corner,” the pope told his hearers. “And let us try, with fraternity, to go forward. Fundamentalism is a scourge and all religions have some kind of fundamentalist first cousin there, which forms a group.
