2008 Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin blasted supporters of the #NeverTrump faction from a stage Friday in Denver for fueling Hillary Clinton’s path to victory with “dynamite” as she called them on the carpet, “You’re either with us or you’re against us.” Former Alaska Governor Palin spoke of the growing “movement” that picked Donald Trump as their champion. Palin’s opening message before presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump addressed the Western Conservative Summit took aim at “the GOP wing of the good ol’ boys club” and their plans to “throw in for Hillary against the will of the people in

An exclusive interview with a security source who was present at the unplanned meeting Monday night on a Phoenix tarmac between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lorretta Lynch has shed additional light on an unusual summit that is embroiling the AG in charges of favoritism. As attorney general, Lynch heads the Department of Justice just as it is deciding whether to proceed with charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server during her tenure as President Obama’s secretary of state.

It’s Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies by Mary Eberstadt Harper, 158 pages, $25.99 Members of traditional religions became moral outlaws in the United States once equal rights for sexual preference and gender choice were enshrined in regulation and law. To believe that homosexual relations are sinful, as does biblical religion, defines the believer as a bigot in the view of liberal opinion, which is backed by the federal regulatory apparatus and the regulators of most American states, as well as by most of the judicial system. As Mary Eberstadt reports, expressions of religious belief that society considered innocuous and normal until

WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama signed a bill Thursday aimed at speeding up the government´s response time to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act. With his own administration often criticized for failing to respond to FOIA requests quickly or fully, the president said the reform law will make it "easier, faster and cheaper" for citizens to obtain government information under the 50-year-old law. "Congress on a bipartisan basis has provided the tools to legislation to codify some of the reforms we´ve already made and to expand more of these reforms so government is more responsive," Obama told reporters.

Nashville, TN - Tennessee businesses that say no to guns could soon find themselves subject to a lawsuit. A new law that goes into effect Friday is the first of its kind in the United States. (Snip) Beginning July 1, anyone with a valid gun permit can sue a gun-free business if they are hurt on the premises. “It would have to be something where you could have defended yourself with a gun. So if you slip, fall and slip on some water because someone spilled water in the restaurant, I don´t think that would be covered,” said Dr. John

Who’s even more powerful than the king? The person who gets to pick the king. And as of this morning that person is, quite possibly, FBI Director James Comey. Today’s Morning Joe reported breaking news from the New York Times: Attorney General Loretta Lynch has decided that she will accept the recommendation of the FBI regarding its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. If Comey recommends against an indictment of Hillary, that would lift a huge cloud that has been dragging her candidacy down. It would put Hillary in a very strong position to become the next president. But should Comey recommend
An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers. Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it. They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color”
Shanika S. Minor, who was on the FBI’s “most wanted” fugitives list after being accused of killing a nine-months-pregnant Milwaukee woman and then fleeing, has been captured in North Carolina, authorities said Friday.

The FBI said the incident began as an

Two senior military leaders of so-called Islamic State (IS) were killed by a US-led coalition air strike near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the Pentagon says. They were the group´s deputy minister of war, who oversaw Mosul´s capture in 2014, and a senior military commander, spokesman Peter Cook said. US-led air strikes have helped Iraqi forces and its allies to push IS back. An offensive to retake Mosul is seen as the next battle for Iraqi forces. Basim Muhammad Ahmad Sultan al-Bajari was a former al-Qaeda member who also led an IS battalion known for using homemade explosives, suicide bombers and mustard gas in its
The Marines have launched an internal investigation into staff at a boot camp in Parris Island, S.C., after Muslim recruit Raheel Siddiqui died in an apparent suicide 11 days after arriving. Fifteen drill instructors are now under investigation, as scrutiny increases of military practices that many believe cross the line from teasing, camaraderie, and toughening-up into danger. The Parris Island drill instructors face allegations of hazing, assault, and physical abuse, the Marines announced Thursday.

Theresa May has won the backing of four times as many MPs as any other candidate for the Conservative Party leadership, a survey by ITV News shows. Of 139 MPs who have spoken to ITV News, 82 said they would be supporting the Home Secretary. Earlier, Michael Gove declared himself "the candidate for change" as he set out his pitch to become Conservative leader and prime minister.

WASHINGTON -Mirwais Nasari’s first glimpses of America came from Rambo movies and “X-Files” episodes that he watched underneath the leaky roof of his family’s clay house at a refugee camp in Pakistan. Other young Afghans he knew admired Europe, but it was always the United States for Nasari. He skipped lunch for two years to take English lessons. His father defended him to uncles who thought he should be working, not studying. And Nasari was unfazed when his big chance finally arrived, with a hitch: He’d be a Muslim teen alone in Tennessee, attending a Christian high school where he
RANDOLPH — The plan in this, the smallest town in Maine, was simple: join neighboring municipalities in the summertime rite of celebrating the United States and honoring veterans by mounting American flags on utility poles on the town’s traffic corridors. For about a year, Jim Kimball and the Randolph Fire Association have been raising money for the project and had gathered donations totaling about $1,000, just enough to pay for 20 flags and the mounting hardware. And so the flags went up. “It makes the town look better,” said Kimball, a captain in the Randolph Volunteer Fire Department and a

Despite all the hysteria from media and political elites that claimed the UK would stagnate if British voters passed Brexit to leave the EU, it turns out that UK stocks are higher a week later while the other stock markets are still down. In perhaps the most arrogant establishment response on the first day after the Brexit vote, Harvard educated James Traub, wrote in the elite Foreign Policy Magazine: “It’s Time for the Elites to Rise Up Against the Ignorant Masses.” (Snip) But a week after the referendum victory for the “leave” voters, the British stock market index is up
