  • Melania Trump caught on camera swatting away husband Donald as he tries to hold her hand

    UK Mirror ^ | May 22, 2017
    Footage filmed as the President and First Lady disembarked from their plane in Israel shows Trump holding out his hand behind him as if he's encouraging his wife to grasp it. Trump's hand lingers behind him for a few seconds before wife Melania does a swift flick of the wrist and swats his fingers away from her. His hand recoils and he continues walking as if nothing happened. It's so subtle and her movements so seamless, anyone would miss it - but luckily for us, it was captured on camera. When the footage is slowed down, it becomes apparent she...

  • Roger Stone: Seth Rich Parents Repped by DNC, Trump Needs to Order FBI “Real Investigation”

    05/22/2017 12:00:37 PM PDT · by drewh · 51 replies
    ROGER STONE (HOST): You have a number of interesting factors here. First of all, there’s the change in the story of Seth Rich’s parents. Initially they themselves denied that this was a robbery. Now suddenly they’re being represented by a crisis communications consultant paid for by the Democratic National Committee. To say the least that is suspicious. You have the private detective who has come forward and said that his sources in the D.C. Metropolitan Police tell him that the laptop which was utilized by Mr. Rich shows multiple contacts with WikiLeaks. You have Fox now reporting that over 40,000...

    A Florida man who once had common neo-Nazi beliefs with his two roommates killed them after he converted to Islam, claiming they had disrespected his faith, police say. Devon Arthurs, 18, of Tampa, told police he shot Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, on Friday at the Hamptons at Tampa Palms complex after becoming upset about widespread anti-Muslim sentiment, saying he “wanted to bring attention to the cause,” according to a police report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times. Arthurs then briefly held one employee and one customer hostage at the nearby Green Planet Smoke Shop, where he boasted...

    LAPD Officers Join Compton Students For Father-Daughter Dance Friday was a night of celebration in Watts for dozens of young princesses. The gymnasium at Compton Avenue Elementary School magically transformed into a beautiful ballroom - all for the annual father-daughter dance. The music was thumping, feet were moving and smiles were everywhere! "I really like the fact that these beautiful ladies are being empowered. They're being shown that they are princesses in their own right, and all are individuals and all are appreciated here," father Jesse Melano said. But not all of these young ladies have a father figure in...
  • Coulter: If Trump Doesn't Keep His Promises, Dems Will Win Big in 2018 & Impeach Him

    Fox News ^ | May. 22, 2017
    Ann Coulter was one of President Donald Trump's most outspoken supporters during the 2016 election, but so far she's been underwhelmed by his presidency. On "Varney & Co." today, Coulter said that the American people elected Trump to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, enforce immigration laws, end NAFTA and end our role as the world's police. "Unfortunately, we're not getting what we voted for," Coulter said. She acknowledged, however, that much of the "vicious and violent" criticism of Trump is unfair. "Both political parties for years and years have been pushing whatever Wall Street and the elites want....

    OK, gang, time to move along – other stuff is more important. That's the logical strategy for the Democratic Party leadership to signal the base that the Russia conspiracy narrative has served its purpose and belongs in the Memory Hole. You don't want to go farther out on the limb of an unfounded charge dreamed up to explain away the failure of Hillary and her campaign henchpeople to pull off the expected victory. But such a judicious approach is not the métier of rabble-rouser Thomas Perez, the party chairman. Into the breach leaped Representative Keith Ellison, the consolation prize-holder of...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper wonders why Trump more warmly received in Saudi Arabia when Obama's father was a Muslim (Full title) Somebody please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the "strong horse." Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that's a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he's a "person of color" (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question,...

    Last week, Fox 5 DC’s report incited a storm of controversy after former D.C. police homicide detective Rod Wheeler stated that there was tangible evidence on murdered Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich’s laptop suggesting that he was communicating with Wikileaks prior to his death. The story generated a large amount of outrage, with outlets like the Washington Post and Vice labelling it a “conspiracy theory” and claiming that it had no basis in fact. But details regarding the political affiliation of spokespeople and representatives of the Rich family appear to indicate that the DNC may be prioritizing its...

The circus gave the final performance of "The Greatest Show on Earth" to a sold-out crowd at Nassau Coliseum, showing off its death-defying stunts and exotic animals for the last time after 146 years.

    Former GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz once went on “The Late Show” and asked Stephen Colbert if he could “humanize” him. Colbert was explaining to an audience at New York mag’s Vulture Festival on Saturday that audiences can “smell a prepared answer” from a politician. “I don’t want to betray my guest because there’s what happens on-camera and off-camera, but I guess it’s okay because I don’t think [Ted Cruz] understood what he was asking,” the 53-year-old host said.

    Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) on Sunday walked back earlier comments that the controversy surrounding investigations into potential collusion between associates of President Donald Trump and the Russian government had reached “Watergate size and scale.” Mr. McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, in an interview on Fox News Sunday said he had been referring to the way the Trump administration was managing the situation. “Now the question is, how is it handled? Is it handled the way Watergate was where it’s drip, drip, drip, every day more, or do we handle it like the—like Ronald Reagan handled Iran...

    RIYADH: Saudi Arabian Mining Company Maaden has signed “landmark” memorandums of understanding (MoU) with the US-based companies Alcoa and Mosaic, according to a statement. The agreements, signed at the inaugural Saudi-US CEO Forum in Riyadh, will help tap the Saudi mining sector’s significant potential, it was announced. Maaden and Alcoa announced that they would assess the feasibility of an expansion of a smelting capacity in Saudi Arabia. They previously developed an aluminum production complex in Ras Al-Khair Industrial City. Since it was formed by the partners in 2009, the Maaden-Alcoa joint venture complex has made a contribution of approximately $4...

    Mohamed was arrested and charged with bringing a hoax bomb to school.  Those charges were later dropped, but the resulting furor from the incident became a litmus test for "Islamophobia" in America.  Those who supported the "innocent" teen were tolerant, broad-minded, and welcoming of diversity.  Those who think the student wrong were haters.  Ahmed ended up being invited to NASA headquarters and an event that featured President Obama as the left rallied to his cause. Meanwhile, his father moved the family to Qatar but stayed only nine months. When the family moved back to Irving, they demanded $15 million not to...
