    John Bolton turned up on Fox about an hour before I did last night, and professed to be surprised by the sudden Tweeting of his appointment as US National Security Advisor. The Beltway insiders allege that it was rushed out to distract from Trump's cave-in on the 2,232-page Schumer-Pelosi Early-Christmas-For-Big-Bloated-Budget-Busting-Bureaucracy Bill that not a single person on this planet has actually read. Oh, and don't give me that "increased funding for our troops" straw-clutching: every sentient creature from the earthworm up knows that the extra dough's just going to go to diversity programs and gender reassignment surgery as opposed to...

    A summons has been issued to President Trump in a lawsuit alleging he is violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution. The lawsuit — filed by the attorneys general in Washington, D.C., and Maryland — alleges that Trump is violating the clause, which prevents elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments without Congress’s approval, WAMU reported. The lawsuit is filed against Trump in his "official capacity and in his individual capacity," according to the Washington, D.C., radio station. The lawsuit also argues that businesses in Maryland and D.C. have been hurt because groups instead choose to stay...

Zucker called Fox News “State run TV” and “worse than TASS,” which is Russia’s state-run news agency. Zucker made the comments at the FT’s Future of News event today in New York City. Echoing the comments of former Fox News military analyst Ralph Peters, Zucker called Fox News a “propaganda machine.”

    There is a basic morality to Trump’s politics. He may be unfaithful in other relationships, but in dealings with his supporters he has been heroically true. He sticks to his promises under attacks that men with greater reputations for virtue have fled. It is not lost on conservatives that they put into office two Bushes, exemplars of public rectitude, who tended to sue for peace whenever the left threatened to expel them from the club of right thinkers. The parable Jesus told of the Good Samaritan is about two upstanding members of the community passing a man who was robbed...

    Obama’s real legacy was, well, weed. Obama backed the Fed’s off states that wanted to legalize medical or recreational marijuana. Obama’s America was on a path to legalize and profit on the massive marijuana marketplace. That was until Jeff Sessions became Attorney General. It is no secret that Sessions is no friend of the budding marijuana industry in the United States. Sessions’ recently released a one-page memo declaring that the Department of Justice (DOJ) would rescind Barack Obama’s Cole Memo which outlined a relaxed set of "rules" for states legalizing marijuana to follow in order to avoid federal interference. Fearing...

The research, led by University College London, looked at 1,920 HIV patients worldwide who had treatment failure. Lead author Dr Ravi Gupta said the results were "extremely concerning".

    Who’s at the top of the list of people “relitigating 2016?” Hillary Clinton, of course, who has blamed her loss on everything from James Comey to the Curse of the Bambino. So on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show this morning, when Howard Dean emphatically instructed people relitigating 2016 to “leave us alone,” who do you think he had most in mind? Right. Sharpton apparently didn’t want his show to become a platform for criticizing Clinton: “Uh, uh, uh: watch it, Howard. You’re getting a little snippy.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On CNN today, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times argued that women in the Trump administration, particularly Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, are unfairly subjected to more criticism than their male counterparts. Alisyn Camerota seconded Haberman’s notion. Chris Cuomo initially pushed back a bit, but ultimately joined the party, saying: “The lookism stuff. Saturday Night Live, when they first went after Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and it was about how she looked and how she dresses. It was obnoxious. And that happens to Kellyanne all the time when she goes on. That’s wrong too. No question about it.” Get...

    Across the globe in India this past weekend, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton targeted rural Trump voters with yet another stream of hatred. She smeared them as depressed, backward, and white in an ignorant tirade before a foreign crowd. But on the Tuesday installment of HLN’s Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp unloaded on Clinton and called her out for being a “myopic self-centered self-righteous unaccountable and unrelatable political creature.” After playing a clip of Clinton’s attack, Cupp expertly broke down what the former secretary of state actually said. “She won the coasts, which is, you know, better than all those backward,...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s past comments on ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson haunted her Tuesday after she cast the latest development as a form of capitulation to Russia. Months of policy disagreements came to a head this week between President Trump and Mr. Tillerson in a single tweet: “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!” Mrs. Pelosi released a statement which called the move an attempt to curry favor with Moscow, based on Tillerson’s criticism of the Kremlin...

The website was "made with progressives, independents, disillusioned Republicans, and the LGBT community in mind," according to a press release from ALC. Ted Brown, the founder of ALC, said in a...

    Pelosi: ‘I Eat Nails for Breakfast, Don a Suit of Armor’ to Fight Inequality BY: Paul Crookston March 9, 2018 1:40 pm On Friday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had a message for progressives unsure about her commitment to economic equality. Pelosi was speaking at the Progressive Caucus Strategy Center Summit when she said her top motivation is bringing children out of poverty. She then compared herself to armored warriors who "eat nails for breakfast." "My motivation is: one in five children in America lives in poverty. I can’t handle it. I just can't handle it," she said. "So every...

    Business leaders from nearly every American industry are furious with President Trump right now. They’ve been pressuring his administration to back off from its plan to add steep tariffs on importedsteel and aluminum, which are used to make everything from cars to boats and even soup cans. But the president has waved off their concerns. On Thursday afternoon, Trump is expected to sign an order directing the Commerce Department to add the 25 percent levy on steel and the 10 percent levy on aluminum. He did say, however, that his administration will exempt Canada and Mexico from the tariffs for...

    Iranian sources blamed the architect of a recently-built mosque for having a an affinity for "secular Judaism" and participating in a "Zionist plot." The new mosque, built in Tehran, follows a minimalist design which according to the architects is symbolic of "early Islam's modesty." However, more conservative voices have criticized the mosque's design for the fact that it differs from traditional mosques around the world. In their opinion, the design is the result of "secular and Jewish influence." Mashregh, a local news site, claimed the new mosque looks like a kippah (skullcap or beanie), and that the architects must stand...

    he House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign. For more than a month, the committee has been in its second phase of investigations...
