  • Flashback: Reporter Fired After Report That Trump Spent Thanksgiving Tweeting and Golfing – He Was Actually in Afghanistan Visiting Troops

    Just one year ago, a Newsweek reporter was fired after running a story that President Trump spent his Thanksgiving tweeting and golfing. In reality, he had made a trip to Afghanistan to spend time with the troops. “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more,” a headline from political journalist Jessica Kwong proclaimed. The story began, “As with any other day of the year, Trump will probably be tweeting, or expressing his opinions in another way.” The President actually made an unannounced visit to Afghanistan to greet US troops and meet the Afghani President Ashraf Ghani to discuss bringing...

  • Biden Admits He No Longer Has Support of Law Enforcement

    After being called out by President Trump at last week’s debate, Joe Biden admitted at an NBC town hall that he no longer has support from law enforcement. The difficult concession occurred when the mother of a police officer and wife of a retired police officer questioned him about “defunding the police.” She said the idea was “troubling” and was curious how a Biden administration would reform the police while still ensuring their safety. Biden side-stepped the question, instead noting he wasn’t qualified to be in law enforcement among other fields. He proceeded to suggest he has had support from...
  • Michelle Obama Slams Trump as a ‘Racist’ Failure in ‘Closing Argument’ For Biden

    Michelle Obama, appearing in a 24-minute ‘closing argument’ video in support of Joe Biden, made a case that President Trump is promoting “racist” policies. The former First Lady first addressed the President’s “failure” in handling the coronavirus pandemic. Obama accused Trump of downplaying the importance of wearing masks and social distancing and “knowingly exposing his own supporters to a dangerous virus” by holding rallies. The President was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday after contracting COVID-19. He encouraged Americans to continue living their lives. “Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t...

    The House of Representatives will no longer come back in session on May 4, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday on a call with reporters. Hoyer instead said the Congressional session would resume 'very soon,' but he explained that the Attending Physician of the United States Congress, Dr. Brian Monahan, indicated it was too much of a health risk for members to come back to Washington, D.C., because coronavirus cases in the area hadn't decreased in number yet. 'There was a risk to members that he would not recommend taking,' Hoyer said. The No. 2 Democrat also said the...

    The World Heath Organisation has found itself with serious questions to answer after President Trump accused the UN agency of 'severely mismanaging' its response to the coronavirus pandemic and withheld $500million in funding. The WHO has been spearheading global efforts to fight the virus, but has come under attack for playing along with China as the country sought to minimise its initial outbreak and the threat the disease posed. Critics point to its uncritical parroting of Chinese government data, early claims that the disease was not spreading person-to-person, and praise for the country's leaders as evidence that it was not...
  • Is Christianity really in numerical decline in America? A Closer Look At the Pew Research Survey

    Do recent polls really tell the full story here in America? Is it true that Christianity is experiencing a serious, ongoing, numerical decline? Those polls could well be accurate, speaking of a major spiritual crisis in our nation. But there may be a different way to understand what is happening, one that points to separation and refining more than to backsliding and apostasy.First, let’s look at the results of the most recent Pew Research Center poll.As reported on October 19, “The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip. In Pew Research Center telephone surveys...

    More than a dozen Republican senators introduced legislation on Tuesday that would make it easier for Congress to terminate future national emergency declarations, days before the chamber will vote on President Trump's. The legislation, spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), would require that Congress pass a resolution extending an emergency declaration after 30 days for it to continue, otherwise it would be terminated. “If Congress is troubled by recent emergency declarations made pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, they only have themselves to blame. Congress gave these legislative powers away in 1976 and it is far past time that we...

    The appalling way in which Ted Kennedy treated women is currently being exposed in the new film Chappaquiddick. But you wouldn’t know about the sordid legacy of the Kennedy family in the nearly nine minutes CBS spent on Joe Kennedy III. Instead, the network on Friday and Sunday serenaded the “legendary,” storied” Kennedys and hyped Joe Kennedy’s possible presidential run in 2020. Chappaquiddick and the #MeToo movement never came up in the seven minutes Gayle King devoted to the Massachusetts Congressman on Sunday Morning. King, a Democratic donor as well as weekday co-host, cheered: “Joe Kennedy III remains a rising...
  • Will the Navy Develop a New Role for the Stealthy Zumwalt?

    The three new Zumwalt-class destroyers are in trouble. Originally envisioned as a fleet of more nearly three dozen destroyers, and the weapons that justified them, the Zumwalts have faced delays, cuts and staggering cost increases. As the ships teeter on the verge of white elephant status, could they become relevant again by taking on a new role, that of a stealthy ship killer? The Zumwalt-class destroyers were originally envisioned as a fleet of thirty-two destroyers designed to attack targets far inland with precision-guided howitzer shells. Designed in part to support amphibious landings by the U.S. Marine Corps, the Zumwalts were...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) says she will not support moving forward with a plan to repeal ObamaCare with a delayed replacement, effectively killing the latest legislative gambit from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). With Murkowski's defection, GOP leaders do not have the votes to move forward to an ObamaCare repeal bill that passed the Senate in 2015, but was vetoed by then-President Obama. Earlier Tuesday, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) also said they will not support moving to the repeal-only bill. Republicans can only afford two defections if Vice President Pence breaks a tie.

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor David Corn believe they know why Republicans have a problem with President Barack Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan Rice – her gender and her skin color. In discussing how Republicans reacted to Rice, who it was revealed this week asked for names of Trump campaign officials to be unmasked in intelligence reports, telling conflicting stories in the past few weeks, Matthews observed, “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought.” “By the way,” Matthews, whose wife Kathleen is interim Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party, declared, “this is all after the election....

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a lower-court decision that would have struck down a 10-day waiting period for certain firearm purchases. The lower-court decision would have allowed existing gun owners and people with concealed-weapons permits to immediately take possession of a lawfully purchased firearm. [Snip] 9th Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder ... said someone who already owns a hunting rifle may want to buy a larger-capacity weapon that will do more damage when fired into a crowd. "A 10-day cooling-off period would serve to discourage such conduct and would impose no serious burden on the core...

    U.S. EPA employees were in tears. Worried Energy Department staffers were offered counseling. Some federal employees were so depressed, they took time off. Others might retire early. And some employees are in downright panic mode in the aftermath of Donald Trump's victory. "People are upset. Some people took the day off because they were depressed," said John O'Grady, president of American Federation of Government Employees Council 238, a union that represents thousands of EPA employees. After Election Day, "people were crying," added O'Grady, who works in EPA's Region 5 office in Chicago. "They were recommending that people take sick leave...
