    Globalist French President candidate Emmanuel Macron faced animosity from workers at a Whirlpool plant facing closure during a campaign visit after anti-mass migration candidate Marine Le Pen made a surprise visit hours earlier. What started as a planned campaign stop to visit the union bosses of a Whirlpool plant facing closure in Amiens ended in disaster for Mr. Macron after a surprise visit from his presidential rival. Mr. Macron was shoved and shouted at by workers who may lose their jobs as the factory is scheduled to be relocated to Poland next June French broadcaster BFMTV reports.

    Former Olympian and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner was on The View Wednesday to talk about their new book and how they felt about Donald Trump. While criticizing Trump‚Äôs record on transgender issues, Jenner said they still identified as a conservative for issues like national security. Jenner‚Äôs answer prompted one host to excitedly ask Jenner to run for political office. The interview began with host Whoopi Goldberg asking about Jenner‚Äôs relationship with Trump: WHOOPI: What can you say to him that says, ‚ÄėListen. You need to remember. We're all Americans here.‚Äô How can you help us? Jenner responded that Trump‚Äôs ruling...

    Before the communist takeover in the 1917 October Revolution, Russiaís economy was the fifth-largest in the world and the nation was steadily modernizing. Being a Marxist regime, the All-Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks) envisioned a new social order that would liberate the downtrodden masses from former oppression. Their leader, Vladimir Lenin, decided to ďbegin without transition to build up socialism.Ē Instead, Leninís communist policies rapidly brought down production, causing a deadly famine that claimed the lives of millions, and motivated the Soviet regimeís descent into absolute dictatorship. By 1921, the destruction and embarrassment was so great that Lenin was compelled to...

    Turkish authorities have launched a massive detention operation, arresting more than 1,000 people nationwide on Wednesday. The Turkish government says the arrests are aimed at supporters of the U.S-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames for last year's failed coup attempt. And these arrests are by no means the end of the operation. Anadolu Agency, a state-run news service, says the government aims to arrest another 2,000 people. Germany's Deutsche Welle newspaper reports roughly 8,500 police officers undertook raids in all 81 provinces in Turkey

    Trump has released his tax reform plan and there is much interesting about it; let us focus on one small portion that will get the most headlines Ė reducing the corporate tax rate from 39% to 15%. The United States has the third highest corporate tax rate in the world at 39% Ė even Chinaís corporate tax rate is only 25%. Yes, we tax corporations at a higher rate than the commies! The caveat that is that no one pays the 39%. There are deductions Ė and deductions are the threat to this tax plan passing congress. While the corporate...

    RUSH: The amount of money coming into Washington is not a factor when the Democrats start spending it. Witness Obama. National debt doubled in eight years. It didnít matter what the tax revenue was. Didnít matter. He was gonna spend the money anyway. The Democrats are about punishing achievement and punishing success and saying itís unjustified, itís unfair, and it may involve cheating and scandal. They stigmatize success because their voters are people who cannot achieve those things. The Democrats have made sure they donít even want to try.

    A proposal considered by California lawmakers would substantially remake the health care system of the nationís most populous state by eliminating insurance companies and guaranteeing coverage for everyone. The idea known as single-payer health care has long been popular on the left and is getting a new look in California as President Donald Trump struggles to repeal and replace former President Barack Obamaís health care law. The proposal, promoted by the stateís powerful nursing union and two Democratic senators, is a longshot. But supporters hope the time is right to persuade lawmakers in California, where Democrats like to push the...

    Washington (AFP) - After moving to unstitch climate change rules, US President Donald Trump Wednesday opened the door to undoing the federally protected status of some of America's vast nature preserves. He signed an executive order reviewing decisions by predecessors Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to designate public land a "national monument" under a 1906 law known as the Antiquities Act. "Today I'm signing a new executive order to end another egregious abuse of federal power and to give that power back to the states and to the people where it belongs," Trump said at the signing...
