It is the oldest continuously operating Army post in the United States. And it is unquestionably the most important training ground for American military leaders.When Thomas Jefferson set in motion the establishment of a national military academy in 1801, he did so to solve a problem. America was about to begin its westward expansion and needed to train an army of engineers. And it was armies that trained and developed the engineering talent of the day. It didn’t take long for Congress to act, passing a bill authorizing the establishment and funding of the school with the Military Peace Establishment

Legislative Director Marc Short took the White House briefing podium on Friday to call out “historic obstruction” by Democrats for requiring 30 hours of debate over Trump administration nominees at a rate far beyond that which prior administrations faced. Short repeatedly pointed to Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for “…the historic obstruction that we have faced by Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and Senate Democrats in confirming our nominees to enable us to fill out our White House.” “The Senate obviously has the constitutional responsibility for advice and consent,” said Short who then proceeded to describe “what that looks like in

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is warning President Trump not to take any trade action against China or he will unleash his purchased control agents within congress and financial media to destroy his presidency. Donohue takes-in hundreds of millions in payments from multinational corporations who hold a vested interest in keeping the U.S. manufacturing economy subservient to China. The U.S. CoC then turns those corporate funds into lobbyist payments to DC politicians for legislative action that benefits their Chinese trade deals. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the #1 lobbyist in DC; there are trillions at stake. Wall

Republican leadership is going to fund sanctuary cities in the must-pass spending bill next week, giving Democrats a huge victory while simultaneously undercutting conservatives who put them in power, a senior GOP aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “House and Senate leadership has rolled over and played dead on border security. When it comes to a border wall, they say it is not our problem. When it comes to funding sanctuary cities, they say it is not our problem. What they are essentially saying is we are going to pass bills with more Democrats than Republicans,” the aide told

Walmart shoppers and store employees were stunned by the destruction allegedly inflicted by Simeon Career Academy students Wednesday morning, FOX 32 reported. “These guys jacked up our store pretty good,” one Walmart employee told conservative news site The Red Elephants. “They pounced on cars in the lot, vandalized two of the school buses parked there, threw Gatorade bottles at shoppers, smoke bombs, and we heard gun shots in the parking

ProPublica, the high-and-mighty investigative-reporting foundation financed by George Soros, Herbert and Marion Sandler, the Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation and other leftwing elitist moneybags, has been forced to issue an embarassing correction to one of its vaunted investigative reports. According to the Washington Examiner: ProPublica has issued a correction for mistakenly saying in an article that Gina Haspel, President Trump’s nominee to head the CIA, was involved with the treatment a terror suspect and falsely stated she mocked the suspect. Although Haspel, who has been with the CIA since 1985, was in charge of a covert CIA prison in Thailand where detainees

His career really went down the toilet. Outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was reportedly sitting on the loo when the White House chief of staff called to deliver the bad news. Tillerson, who was on a trip to Africa, was suffering from a stomach bug when Chief of Staff John Kelly informed him to return to DC and be on the lookout for a presidential tweet, according to the Daily Beast. Kelly was speaking in an off-the-record meeting with reporters when he made the potty revelation. It was later leaked to the website. During the call, the chief of

As you may have heard, President Trump has tapped CNBC´s Larry Kudlow to be his next senior economic adviser. The news has been met with mockery in some media circles with usual piousness toward the president for hiring too many people from the media industry to join his administration. "Trump TV is a pipeline for Trump hires," said MSNBC´s Chris Hayes on his primetime program, "All In." Hayes also added in a tweet: "Trump´s dream cabinet would be *entirely* filled with cable hosts and pundits."

Fox News chief news anchor Shepard Smith announced Friday afternoon he was taking a "previously-planned one-week vacation" and joked that when he returns "everything will be peachy-keen & hunky-dory." The announcement comes just hours after fellow Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham slammed Smith as "clueless" about what the opinion side of the network does and for making "inconsiderate and inaccurate" statements about prime-time Fox programs. (Snip) "No shooting inside the tent. Everything is wonderful," Smith laughed as the interview with Wallace ended. "Going to take a one-week vacation that

The prestigious New Yorker magazine is under fire for its latest cover, which depicts President Trump addressing reporters in the nude in an unflattering illustration that mocks his appearance. The magazine tweeted an early look at this image and it was immediately met with criticism. While many critics chimed in with responses calling the image “disgusting” and “repulsive,” others accused the image of mocking the president for his physical appearance – which is generally frowned upon in the current cultural landscape. (Snip) “I dislike Trump, but they could have done without the body shaming,” one user tweeted. “Especially considering that is

Whether there was collusion between FBI agent Peter Strzok, bureau lawyer Lisa Page, and a FISA judge remains to be seen, but the optics certainly are not good. The Federalist obtained texts between Strzok and Page, reportedly showing that the two planned to collude with Judge Rudolph Contreras after his appointment to the FISA Court. The publication also wrote that these exchanges were deliberately hidden from Congress [emphasis mine]: (Snip) “Rudy is on the [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]!” Page excitedly texted Strzok on July 25, 2016. “Did you know that?

Until this week, I´d never heard of Nick Freitas, an Iraq war veteran and a Republican member of Virginia´s House of Delegates. But several people have sent me the clip below of his floor speech from earlier this month, in which he strenuously defends the Second Amendment in the wake of the Parkland massacre. He also calls out the anti-gun Left over some of their policy preferences, and especially over their ´end of discussion´-style debating tactics -- which prevent the sort of "open and honest" debate lawmakers on both sides often claim to desire.

If Mark Zuckerberg and a janitor who works at Facebook’s headquarters each received a speeding ticket while driving home from work, they’d each owe the government the same amount of money. Mr. Zuckerberg wouldn’t bat an eye. The janitor is another story. For people living on the economic margins, even minor offenses can impose crushing financial obligations, trapping them in a cycle of debt and incarceration for nonpayment. In Ferguson, Mo., for example, a single $151 parking violation sent a black woman struggling with homelessness into a seven-year odyssey of court appearances, arrest warrants and jail time connected to her

Sheet happens. Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

The number of food stamp dependent Americans hit a six-year low in President Donald Trump’s first year in office, reflecting an improving economy and falling unemployment, according to a U.S. Agriculture Department (USDA) report. An average of 42.2 million Americans participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program in 2017, which is an 11 percent decrease from 2013, when a record number of people used food stamps, according to USDA. “Federal spending for SNAP totaled $68.0 billion or 4 percent less than in the previous fiscal year,” USDA reported. “This was also 15 percent less than the historical high

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle appeared to question if Larry Kudlow, a long-time contributor and commentator for CNBC who also worked in the Reagan administration, should be discussing “God’s will” as part of his decision to work for the Trump administration. "If you noticed when Larry Kudlow spoke on CNBC yesterday, he ended by saying, ‘However things work out, it will be God´s will,’" Ruhle said Thursday. "That’s an interesting way to talk about being the national economic adviser to the president," Ruhle said with a confused frown. "God´s will?"
