A Split From Trump Indicates That
Flynn Is Moving to Cooperate With Mueller
New York Times, by Michael S. Schmidt, Matt Apuzzo*    Original Article

Washington - Lawyers for Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, notified the president’s legal team in recent days that they could no longer discuss the special counsel’s investigation, according to four people involved in the case, an indication that Mr. Flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal. Mr. Flynn’s lawyers had been sharing information with Mr. Trump’s lawyers about the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining whether anyone around Mr. Trump was involved in Russian efforts to undermine Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers. Here are a few Thanksgiving thoughts from me over the years. First, from on the radio with Hugh Hewitt exactly a decade ago: HUGH HEWITT: "Thanksgiving," you write, "excepting the premature and somewhat undernourished Canadian version, is unique to America." You write that Europeans really just don´t get this. MARK STEYN: No, it´s very strange that Europeans don´t quite understand what the Thanksgiving holiday is all about. You know, holidays in countries tend to be ancient religious holidays, obviously Christmas and Easter, or ones named for battles, or dead kings or queens, or

The Story Behind Norman Rockwell’s
‘Thanksgiving Picture’

Norman Rockwell’s “Thanksgiving Picture” is one of the most iconic images ever created of American life.First published in the March 6, 1943 weekly edition of The Saturday Evening Post, Rockwell worried that the presentation of such a large turkey at the center of the bountiful and happy feast back home might cause unhappiness among the American troops fighting in Europe, North Africa, and the Pacific at a time when the tide of the war had not yet turned. It was still more than a year before the successful D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy June 6, 1944.Among the troops,

President Tump released his Thanksgiving message to the country Thursday morning. The message included a full-throated defense of his policies, the military and the future of the country. The president mentioned “God” nine times and “prayer” twice in his message.Trump asked the nation multiple times to “thank God” in “prayer” and recalled the story of the first Thanksgiving, where pilgrims and Amerindians sat down together to enjoy a meal and thank God for the bounty of the harvest in the new land.The president also recalled his predecessors, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, who were instrumental in designating Thanksgiving as national

Mrs. Clinton Convicts Herself In Stunning
Display of Rage At What Happened in 2016
New York Sun, by Conrad Black    Original Article

The American political community has not taken adequate notice of Hillary Clinton’s book “What Happened” (the title is not posed as a question). It was generally panned when it came out a couple of months ago for blaming everyone but herself for her defeat. I have never been a Clinton-basher, and I was astonished by the venom, untruthfulness, and zealotry of her account. Mrs. Clinton writes persuasively of seeking “grace” after her defeat, and concluded most of her speeches throughout the 2016 campaign calling for “love and kindness,” yet she is unrelievedly ungracious. She describes her opponent as a clear

It´s that time of the year again. That´s right - it´s time to hide your Thanksgiving turkey before your four-legged friend finds it first. Despairing dog owners in the US have been shaming their greedy pooches on social media with signs detailing their crimes. In one photo, a hungry Rottweiler is shamed after taking a sizeable chunk out of a turkey while it was being roasted over a fire. In another, a brazen mutt called Scotty is seen cowering beneath a blanket next to a sign reading: ´I ate all the leftover turkey, peed on the bathroom mat and pooped

Missouri school officials said a non-white student confessed this week to scrawling a racist message on a girls’ bathroom mirror, causing unrest at a St. Louis-area high school. The controversial phrase, “White Lives Matter,” followed by the N-word was discovered on a girls’ bathroom mirror at Parkway Central High School in Chesterfield on Nov. 15. (Snip) “The use of the N-word, in the context of the message on the bathroom mirror, provoked feelings of hate, not love,” he said, a local CW affiliate reported. “As I stated last week, actions and speech which degrade an individual’s human dignity

President Donald Trump in his Thanksgiving Day address to the nation has suggested that enthusiasm in America is at an all time high right now. Trump posted his four-minute video on Twitter on Thursday during which he recounted the tale of the pilgrims traveling to North America, praised the military and beefed up his administration´s accomplishments. ´We are doing something very special... people are feeling it,´ Trump said toward the end of his speech. ´The enthusiasm in this country has never been higher. We´re very, very happy on this Thanksgiving Day.´ He started off the address talking about how the pilgrims traveled to

Come late November, the British and European media customarily feature that all-American picture of the US President and his happy family sparing the Thanksgiving turkey. Perhaps it was just the press of other news – the non-coup coup that pushed a tenacious 93-year-old from his perch in Zimbabwe; the first intimations of Angela Merkel’s political mortality; the latest spasms of Brexit; (parochially) the UK Budget. Perhaps it also reflected the unpopularity of the current White House incumbent on the European side of the Atlantic Ocean. Whatever the reason, those turkey pictures seemed fewer and further between this year, and the

This is the moment police officers fired a warning shot at a knifeman who allegedly shouted Allahu akbar after threatening several passers-by. The tense situation started yesterday morning in Urk, a traditional fishing town in the heart of the Netherlands, when he entered a petrol station at around 8.30am looking confused. He then ran outside and threatened passers-by whilst shouting the Arabic phrase which translates to ´God is greatest´, according to witnesses. Outside the petrol station, the man pulled out a knife which he started to wave around, threatening passers-by. According to media reports, he sang songs containing the words ´Allahu Akbar´, Arabic

In October 2016, a Texas woman sent packages laden with explosives to Governor Greg Abbott, President Barack Obama and Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin. The only reason Abbott was not either severely burned or killed was that he did not open the package as designed.According to court documents, Julia Poff, 46, was reportedly angry at Abbott because she had not received support from her ex-husband. The package to Obama was detected in screening and rendered safe. The package to Colvin was reportedly motivated by the fact that Poff had applied for Social Security benefits and been denied.Poff

The rituals we observe, the company we keep, the memories we honor—these are the things that bind a people together and give them a sense of themselves. Our public holidays make the present a link between the past and the future. They are public displays of what a people values. In America, we value gratitude. From our earliest days, Americans have taken time to give thanks and to do so publicly and together. We’ve done this since before there really was such a thing as an American. The earliest people to celebrate a day of thanks in the new world were

NEW YORK—Let’s all dogpile on the Electoral College. It’s undemocratic, it’s outdated, it’s un-American. The New York Times (surprise, surprise) believes it should be abolished and we should go to a straight-up popular vote. Because (this is the part they don’t tell you when they make this argument)... Screw Wyoming. Screw Vermont. Screw Arkansas. Screw Rhode Island. Screw Delaware. How could the concerns of those little pipsqueak states matter when the massive voting blocs of the Upper West Side and West Hollywood and Nob Hill and the South Side of Chicago are saying, “You people go back to your bass boats and your cattle ranches and your plaid

Warning About Dangers Of
Uranium One Deal

The warning was issued December 21st, 2010. Barack Obama was President and Hillary Clinton his Secretary of State. A uranium deal that allocated a sizable portion of U.S. uranium reserves had just been awarded to Russian government-controlled interests. The deal made no sense. It weakened American security. It also made the Clinton Foundation very-very rich via donations made by corporate interests directly tied to the deal. Senator John Barrasso sounded the alarm. Barack Obama, his administration, and much of the Establishment Media chose to ignore the warning. Read the senator’s letter to then-President Obama here: (screen shot of letter)

Does anyone know anything about someone who calls himself Eminem? At first glance, he´s someone who´s been in trouble with the law, and can´t carry a tune so he practices gangsta rap. He´s also a ´black" guy, the same way Rachel Dolezal was "black" - because he wanted to be some other way. On all fronts, he´s a loser. Wouldn´´t it be natural to ignore losers? Seems President Trump thinks so. And that´s what´s got Eminem upset. The leftist crybaby is whining that President Trump never pays any attention to him. He´s tried and tried.

What a tangled web is weaved…. Hillary Clinton paid her lawyers at Perkins Coie for opposition research on candidate Donald Trump. In turn Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to gather information. Fusion GPS paid Christopher Steele to write the “Russian Dossier”. The FBI also paid Christopher Steele. Additionally, prior evidence surfaced suggesting the FBI used the dossier to get FISA warrants against the Trump campaign. And NOW we discover that Fusion GPS paid journalists and five media companies to participate.

Progressives are desperate to Do Something about LaVar Ball, because his publicity bonanza has exacted a high price from the Left. In multiple ways (snip) LaVar Ball is, after all, the very embodiment of ingratitude on an offensive scale. It does not play well with normal people to refuse to thank someone who has done an extraordinary service with profoundly positive results. But the Left is committed to twin beliefs that make this response appropriate: President Trump is a racist who can do nothing good; America is a polity that runs not on liberty, but on victimization. The corollary is that those who

I somewhat agree with Mrs. Brazile, but I doubt she’ll ever be honest with the reason. Anyone who has watched the ongoing internal battle within the larger Democrat party will note the institutional apparatus is about to make a major concession. More than likely the Democrat machine will drop “super delegates” from the system. The control authority will sell the removal of ‘super delegates‘ as confirmation they are reforming and listening to the people. However, things are not quite as they would appear. The institutional control agents will NEVER give up their control over the nomination process; they don’t even carry that

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe won’t face prosecution and is free to remain in the southern African nation following his resignation on Tuesday after 37 years in power. “There aren’t any plans for former President Robert Mugabe; he’s free to stay in Zimbabwe and he won’t face prosecution,” Simon Khaya Moyo, a spokesman for the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front, said Thursday by phone. “We don’t have anything against him or his family. He’s the hero of our liberation.” Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, is due to be sworn in on Friday to replace Mugabe, who’s ruled since independence in 1980.

I’ve mocked safe spaces before, mostly because what they actually are, most of the time, are segregated spaces: spaces for one race, one sex, one whatever. They are the result of heads being filled with way too much neo-Marxism, in which humanity can be infinitely divided into endless little classes and groups. By definition, each group must strive against the other. Why must the groups strive against each other? I don’t know. Also shut up, racist. Okay, in truth, in the academic Marxist’s mind, each group must strive against the other because the economy is a finite, closed pie, and if you’re getting

Cuba´s foreign minister and his North Korean counterpart have rejected the United States´ “unilateral and arbitrary” demands while expressing concern about escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, the ministry said. North Korea is searching for support amid unprecedented pressure from the United States and the international community to cease its nuclear weapons and missile programmes, which it carries out in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions. The country, which has made no secret of its plans to develop a missile capable of hitting the US mainland, has maintained warm political relations with Cuba since

Yet for some reason, the Democratic and liberal establishment think now is the time to condemn … Bill Clinton. (Snip) The only thing that has changed for liberals is being caught as enablers and hypocrites. None of these people now complaining about Mr. Clinton have had any sort of epiphany. They just realize their defense of sexual assault in the 1990s makes it impossible for them to continue the fraud of casting conservatives as the enemies of women.

To some, the American Century had a well-defined peak. When President John F. Kennedy’s Lincoln Continental turned left at the intersection of Houston and Elm Streets in downtown Dallas, the nation was in the midst of postwar consensus and prosperity; by the time the vehicle had reached the triple underpass at the bottom of Dealey Plaza, the country was headed toward a great unraveling. Or so the story goes. On October 26 and November 3 the National Archives released 3,567 previously sealed documents relating to the Kennedy assassination, as mandated by a 1992 law that Congress passed with the intention of
