President Obama has kowtowed to the Japanese and Western liberals by promising at the site of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb “we shall not repeat the evil.” People who agree with this sentiment ought to do two things. First they should read the essay – Thank God for the Atom Bomb – war historian Paul Fussell wrote on how he felt when, as a 21-year-old second lieutenant in the US army, he and his comrades heard the news that Japan had been nuclear bombed into surrender. “When we learned to our astonishment that we would not be obliged in a few months
California had one of its driest years in 2015. In fact, last year marked the driest four-year period in the state´s history. But Donald Trump isn´t sold. Six months later, the presumptive GOP nominee told supporters in Fresno, Calif., that no such dry spell exists. In fact, Trump said state officials were simply denying water to Central Valley farmers to prioritize the Delta smelt, a native California fish nearing extinction —or as Trump called it, "a certain kind of three-inch fish.” “We’re going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they’re
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Ca.) told ABC’s Jonathan Karl Sunday that Hillary Clinton just wanted some privacy to be able to talk to her husband, daughter, and friends “and not have somebody looking over her shoulder into her e-mails.” “Oh wait a second, I don’t believe she was trying to hide anything,” Feinstein said. “I’ve known Hillary for a quarter of a century.

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is scheduled to be in Washington, D.C., on Sunday to attend the Memorial Day event with Rolling Thunder. “I am doing it in honor of the great bikers who have been totally supportive of my campaign, and now I want to be supportive of them,” Trump told Bloomberg Politics. “I look forward to it!” “The bikers love Trump,” Trump touted previously on the campaign trail. “I’m not a huge biker.

Looks like the debate of the century is off. Donald Trump announced late Friday that he no longer wants to debate Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, after saying earlier this week he’d be willing to do it. In a written statement, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee cited the “rigged” Democratic process – along with the fact that Sanders is almost certain to finish as their runner-up, and complaints about whether enough of the proceeds would go to charity – in turning down the debate proposal. “Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah
Hillary Clinton met up with community leaders in Oakland, California on Friday, wearing a vintage - if slightly unexpected - outfit. The former secretary of state donned a pink gingham jacket with large white buttons as she sat down with mayor Libby Schaaf at the Home Of Chicken And Waffles.
