    Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham told investigative reporter Sara Carter that his goal is to make sure Spygate documents get released to the public. President Trump gave Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify Spygate documents several weeks ago yet we still haven’t seen anything. Senator Graham also hinted there are questions as to whether the investigation into Trump’s campaign started before Crossfire Hurricane began in July of 2016 (Hint: it did). Sara Carter reported: “The American people need to know, not from cable TV but from the documents themselves what actually happened,” Graham said. “I’m not going to...

    NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox and NBC on Sunday ignored new claims by a 76-year-old woman who says Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago. But CNN jumped on the story on Monday, sitting down for a lengthy interview with the new accuser. Carroll made the allegations for the first time in a New York magazine article, in which she said she has been sexually assaulted numerous times by, as she says, a “cavalcade of 21 assholes."

    President Trump said Monday that he would fill a Supreme Court vacancy if it came up before the 2020 election — a reversal on his stance from the 2016 race. This comes weeks after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky also appeared to change his mind and said that he, too, would fill a Supreme Court vacancy before the 2020 vote. "Would I do that? Of course," Mr. Trump told The Hill in an interview when asked about filling a potential vacancy. "If we could get him approved, I would definitely do it," he added. "No, I'd do it...

    The US move to reimpose sanctions on Iran and choke off the last remaining sources of Tehran's oil revenue has crippled the Iranian economy. For many ordinary Iranians, it's becoming increasingly hard to get by. US President Donald Trump has slapped fresh sanctions on Iran as part of his "maximum pressure" campaign against the Middle Eastern nation. Trump's executive order on Monday targeted none other than Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and his associates with financial sanctions. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Trump's order will lock up billions of additional dollars in Iranian assets. Tehran and Washington are...

    Abstract: Over the past decades, detailed surveys of the Pacific Ocean atoll islands show no sign of drowning because of accelerated sea-level rise. Data reveal that no atoll lost land area, 88.6% of islands were either stable or increased in area, and only 11.4% of islands contracted. The Pacific Atolls are not being inundated because the sea level is rising much less than was thought. The average relative rate of rise and acceleration of the 29 long-term-trend (LTT) tide gauges of Japan, Oceania and West Coast of North America, are both negative, −0.02139 mm yr−1 and −0.00007 mm yr−2 respectively....

    Jeremy Hunt says Britain would consider joining the US in military action against Iran. Tensions between the US and Iran have increased in recent weeks after the downing of an American drone, and claims by Washington that Tehran was behind attacks on oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. The Foreign Secretary's comments came as Foreign Office minister Andrew Murrison held talks with the Tehran government at the weekend where he said he was "clear" about the UK's concerns over Iran's activities. Mr Hunt said Britain would "stand by the United States as our strongest ally" and "weigh up military intervention...

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Dozens of official documents suggest that Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was living with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, throughout her entire legal marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, contradicting the story she tells to explain her multiple marriages. Omar tells her marital history in the following way: 2002: Omar married Hirsi in a faith ceremony, but never legally married. 2008: Omar and Hirsi “decided to end our relationship in our faith tradition. ” Early 2009: Omar legally married Elmi. 2011: Omar and Elmi religiously divorced. 2011: Omar and Hirsi reconciled. 2017: Omar and Elmi belatedly obtained...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar has been accused of, but has denied, marrying her own brother. In a 2017 divorce petition, she swore she hadn’t seen Ahmed N. Elmi since 2011 and didn’t know anyone who might be able to contact him. Evidence shows that Elmi may have designed a website for Omar’s sister in 2019 and is living in the same city as her. Omar swore she unsuccessfully tried to locate her husband through social media, yet he is on Twitter and Facebook under his own name. She also swore she did not know the name of a single relative of...

    U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton on Sunday defended President Trump's move to order, then cancel a strike on Iran.

He spoke in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolton said he is in the Middle East for previously scheduled meetings with Israeli and Russian security advisors. And he warned Iran that the U.S. remains a formidable adversary. "Our military is rebuilt, new and ready to go," Bolton said....

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden declined to answer questions on the campaign trail this week about his son's overseas business dealings in countries where the then-vice president was conducting diplomatic work, an issue his political opponents have already begun to wield against him as he wades into the 2020 presidential campaign. More than once, after his father engaged in diplomacy on behalf of the United States in foreign countries, Hunter Biden conducted business in the same country. At two separate campaign stops on Monday, Biden avoided questions about his son while his staff blocked reporters from approaching the candidate. Biden's...

    SAN RAMON (CBS SF / CNN) — Chevron’s nearly century-long relationship with Venezuela might not survive the Maduro regime’s fight with the United States. Not only is Venezuela’s infrastructure crumbling, but the OPEC member’s national oil company has been sanctioned by the Trump administration. Chevron, based in San Ramon and the last major US oil company still operating in Venezuela, could be forced to leave unless US officials extend sanctions waivers scheduled to expire on July 27. A Chevron exit would follow on the heels of other major American companies that have retreated from the chaos in Venezuela in recent...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday again called on former Vice President Joe Biden to apologize for touting his relationships with segregationists, saying Biden’s former colleagues participated in a “disgusting system.” “It is one thing to work with people you have fundamental disagreements with, it’s another to kind of extol those relationships,” Sanders said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “You cannot be extolling people who really were part of a disgusting system.” “I think Joe owes the country an apology on that,” Sanders said, adding “Do I think Joe Biden is a racist? Absolutely not.” Biden sparked controversy last...

    The Democrats and liberal media insist that Russia wanted Trump to win over Crooked Hillary. The entire premise is ridiculous. The Russians had enough dirt on Hillary to fill the White House. The TRUTH is that the entire DC establishment including the Obama White House, the liberal media and the Obama Deep State wanted Hillary Clinton to win… and they worked tirelessly and illegitimately to make it happen. And still failed. On Sunday former prosecutory and Rep. Trey Gowdy joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures. (video)
