Report: The State Department still won’t recognize Jerusalem as a place that exists – TheBlaze

By |

“The president is the commander-in-chief and America’s sole organ when it comes to conducting foreign policy. Article II of the Constitution does not vest this authority in bureaucrats in the State Department,” he told the Free Beacon.

“The State Department must permit Americans born in Jerusalem to list ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ on their passports and must follow the logical implications of this historic recognition in other policy areas,” he added.

Senate ethics committee could face tough choices | McClatchy Washington Bureau

By |

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said an ethics investigation would be complicated because the voters of Alabama are making their decision with full knowledge of the accusations against Moore.

“And if they elect him and then you as a Senate have ethics hearings to remove him from office or something like that, that gets more complicated,” Rubio told Fox News.

In recent weeks, the ethics committee has opened inquiries into Democratic Sens. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Al Franken of Minnesota. Franken, who proposed that the committee review accusations of groping and forcibly kissing made against him, announced his resignation from the Senate on Thursday.

Trump, Mattis turn military loose on ISIS, leaving terror caliphate in tatters | Fox News

By |

“I will…quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS,” Trump, who would name legendary Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis as secretary of defense, promised. “We will not have to listen to the politicians who are losing the war on terrorism.”

Just over a year later, ISIS has been routed from Iraq and Syria with an ease and speed that’s surprised even the men and women who carried out the mission. Experts say it’s a prime example of a campaign promise kept. President Trump scrapped his predecessor’s rules of engagement, which critics say hamstrung the military, and let battlefield decisions be made by the generals in the theater, and not bureaucrats in Washington.

After the coup, what then?

By |

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win. If Trump is brought down, American democracy will take a pasting. It will be seen as a fraud.

Sex Crazed Leftists: New accuser: Conyers got handsy in car

By |

“The allegations of any female with regard to sexual harassment naturally should be taken serious, however when someone is represented by Lisa Bloom, who in every turn engages in tomfoolery and is employed by Harvey Weinstein, you have to look at it through a suspect eye,” said Reed. “She engages in nothing but tomfoolery, and it is not worthy of any further response.”
