But the politically correct culture, with its gift for dumbing down everything, regards rape now not as a felony, but a misdemeanor, something like shoplifting. The abduction of a 14'year'old girl at Rockville High School in Maryland’s Montgomery County by two classmates, newly arrived illegal immigrants, who are charged with torturing, raping and sodomizing her in the boys’ restroom, has outraged most of the residents of the county. But some of the county officials, not so much. Outrage is fatiguing. In Montgomery County, which aspires to be a sanctuary for illegal aliens in trouble Here’s Why Nunes’ Obama Spying Revelations Are Such A Big Deal Fri, 24 08 2017 10:08:02 GMT e293400f002dc33493b6f70c1b6f9fc5a72f6ca3 The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway Posted By: MissMolly- Fri, 24 08 2017 10:08:02 GMT In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon.

Stelzer Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 24 49 2017 09:49:52 GMT Saudis, Russia, shale. That is all ye need to know in order to understand the oil market. The Saudis lead the OPEC oil cartel, Russia is their largest potential fellow traveler, and the Permian Basin in the Southwest is the oil'rich shale that stands between the other two and $100 per barrel oil. There was a time when the Saudi'led cartel of 13 oil producers could more or less control the price of oil. If the market got so high as to encourage the development of alternatives to oil, the Saudis would open the taps and increase production to bring prices Liberals Suddenly Incensed About Budget Process Obama Blew Off For Eight Years Fri, 24 42 2017 09:42:45 GMT bb0205eb900d5d534d7defe078c5b7dec9f7d160 PJ Media, by Jeff Reynolds Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 24 42 2017 09:42:45 GMT The latest Leftist hypocrisy is in, and it´s a doozy. Progressives are losing their minds over President Trump´s budget proposal for all sorts of reasons. Under his legal obligation, President Trump submitted his proposed budget to Congress for approval. If you listen to the Democrat Media Complex, it will hurt the poor, the young, the elderly, the rural, the vulnerable, the arts, the sciences, Big Bird, and federal workers. In typical liberal self'unaware fashion, progressives fail to remember how President Obama blew off his legal obligation to submit a budget proposal by the statutory deadline in seven of his eight years Time for US to stop funding horrific UN ‘peacekeepers’ Fri, 24 36 2017 09:36:10 GMT 5a38356f0e516c6f2064491021790c345554b8db New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 24 36 2017 09:36:10 GMT Liberals shrieked last week when President Trump proposed cutting American funding for the United Nations by 50 percent. Trump dismisses the United Nations as a “waste of time and money.” That’s the least of it. US taxpayers bankroll the organization to the tune of $10 billion a year. Our hard'earned money perpetuates an organization that validates the most savage human'rights abusers on the globe, regularly votes against America and targets America’s ally Israel for extinction. The worst example of UN failure and waste, however, is its peacekeeping missions.

House Speaker Paul Ryan set the showdown for Friday, following a nighttime Capitol meeting at which top White House officials told GOP lawmakers that Trump had decided the time for talk was over.

He grabs a female soldier from behind and grapples for her rifle while holding a pellet gun to her head. He warns the other soldiers to drop their rifles and raise their hands. He shouts, "I am here to die in the name of Allah ... There will be deaths." He’s mostly right. It’s the plural part he gets wrong. The soldier goes low. Her friends shoot him dead. But he’s not entirely wrong either. There will be deaths. Even if they aren’t at Orly Airport.

The meeting, which comes five weeks after Trump asked a reporter at a press conference to help set up a discussion with the group, was organized primarily to discuss Trump’s new budget proposal, which Chairman Cedric Richmond, D'Louisiana, said at a press conference this afternoon would be “devastating” for the African'American community. Rep. Karen Bass, D'California, said that the group raised “several areas of concern” but added that it was a “positive first start.” According to Bass Potential ´smoking gun´ showing Obama administration spied on Trump team, source says Fri, 24 42 2017 06:42:40 GMT b476d0b94f6ddcaf4599f38ae9a7c779994aeb69 Fox News, by James Rosen Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 24 42 2017 06:42:40 GMT Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president'elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R'Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President The tragic tale of the Utah man killed in British Parliament attack Fri, 24 49 2017 05:49:59 GMT 8343cc77afd7420977dea24217efdeaacc310761 New York Post, by Danika Fears and Natalie Musumeci Posted By: Lalo- Fri, 24 49 2017 05:49:59 GMT American couple Kurt and Melissa Cochran were out for a romantic afternoon stroll across the River Thames on Wednesday to wrap up a dream tour of Europe for their 25th anniversary. At the same time, homegrown terrorist Khalid Masood was behind the wheel of a rented Hyundai barreling toward the span, bent on death and destruction. The couple from Utah never had a chance. The impact sent Kurt, a 54'year'old musician, plunging to his death onto a stone landing below the walkway.

"I´ve seen the influence of Russia of late, increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban," Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the head of the U.S. military´s European Command and the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Scaparotti did not specify what Moscow may have been supplying to the insurgents. Until now, What to Do About Obamacare and the Uninsurable? Free Markets and Charity!

After all, the most popular feature of Obamacare is that it prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because an applicant has a pre'existing illness. And President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan insist that those with pre'existing conditions will be covered. But by agreeing with Obama on the issue of pre'existing illnesses, by promising to replace Obamacare "with something better," Republicans are making a massive concession: That access to health care insurance should be guaranteed by Mom who beat cancer while pregnant dies day after giving birth to twins Fri, 24 32 2017 05:32:43 GMT bc01b0091e55fbcea12d3dd552e8c02dfb2a3d79 Fox News, by Staff Posted By: Pageturner- Fri, 24 32 2017 05:32:43 GMT A California mother who beat cancer while pregnant with twins died tragically Friday, just a day after giving birth. Now, family and friends of 30'year'old Jamie Snider are raising funds to help care for her surviving four children, and are remembering her bright smile and loving nature. “Jamie was such a bright light on this planet,” a post on one of several GoFundMe’s set up in her honor reads. “Everything about her was infectious from her beautiful bright green eyes, her big smile, her laugh and her hugs!” Snider had beaten cancer once before but lost an ovary in the process, RINOcare Is A Disaster Fri, 24 57 2017 04:57:13 GMT f2155a465a0cf9dfd0afa11c9716bb9eccb13a91 American Spectator, by David Hogberg Posted By: Lalo- Fri, 24 57 2017 04:57:13 GMT It’s been a while since I’ve agreed with the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, but he’s spot on here: [snip] Indeed, Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) could do worse than cancel the floor vote today on the American Health Care Act (a.k.a. RINOcare). In fact, expect the vote to be cancelled if the GOP leadership is far short of the 216 votes needed to pass RINOcare. If the vote goes forward, then they either have the votes or are just a handful away and will try to twist some arms on the House floor.

This is about as surprising as learning the sun will come up in the East tomorrow. Here’s how Schumer, as predictable as he is charming, phrased it: “After careful deliberation I have concluded that I cannot support Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.” What a knee'slapper.

Rand Paul praised House conservatives for blocking the Obamacare repeal bill Thursday, but said the White House could easily break the impasse if it would agree to send Vice President Mike Pence up to preside over the eventual Senate debate. Mr. Paul said that would give Republicans a chance to head off the parliamentarian and reinterpret the budget process rules that have tied GOP leaders’ hands in what kind of bill they’re able to bring to the floor while avoiding a Democratic filibuster. “That alone I think would break the logjam and get things going,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, told reporters.

He seems to have forgotten that he pushed Obamacare on the promise of reducing costs, not making healthcare unaffordable.” Mr. Obama issued a statement in defense of his health'care law on the seventh anniversary of its passage, saying it’s false for the GOP Trump to reporter: “I’m president and you’re not” Fri, 24 45 2017 03:45:52 GMT 2b6dbaa98b27b8af2b364a0e97249e533d497933 Washington Times, by Dave Boyer Posted By: Lalo- Fri, 24 45 2017 03:45:52 GMT President Trump didn’t give an inch on his claims about wiretapping and voter fraud in an interview published Thursday, and told the journalist, “I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president and you’re not.” In the interview with Time magazine, Mr. Trump defended his tweets about former President Obama wiretapping his campaign headquarters, and said information brought to light Wednesday by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes of California proved him right. “I’m a very instinctual person, but my instinct turns out to be right,” Mr. Trump said, adding that he did not mean wiretapping in the literal sense, Gallup’s Happiness Poll finds Americans aren’t very Fri, 24 18 2017 03:18:31 GMT 941d9ffe4bf360a7743e7dcf886d13b12509a978 Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm Posted By: SurferLad- Fri, 24 18 2017 03:18:31 GMT Remember last June how shocked almost everyone was when Britons voted to leave the European Union? By the usual measurements of economic growth (2%), unemployment (down to 4.9%) and standard poll questions on intent, professionals and many others were pretty certain the United Kingdom would decide to remain in the EU that it fought so long and hard to enter. Oops. Turns out, if media had measured “Happiness,” they’d have recognized the historic looming Brexit upheaval. Same for anticipating the Arab Spring. Fact Check: Four Major Holes In Rep. Adam Schiff’s Trump'Russia Conspiracy Theory Fri, 24 17 2017 03:17:54 GMT 52b9adc211655f05aff59023a00760b13efe9049 Breitbart Big Government, by Aaron Klein Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 24 17 2017 03:17:54 GMT On Monday, Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on a House intelligence committee, delivered his opening statements at a hearing where he laid out the case for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Schiff repeatedly raised questions about alleged collusion between Moscow and members of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Here are four serious problems with Schiff’s charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source: 1 – Throughout his opening statement, Schiff repeatedly relied on information provided by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer who was reportedly paid by Democrats and anti'Trump Republicans Trump delivers ultimatum to House Republicans: Pass health'care measure on Friday or he’ll move on Fri, 24 57 2017 02:57:21 GMT 7cbee0cd2da7d93bbb6b63fc282c6245f7bc8ec7 Washington Post, by Mike DeBonis and Juliet Eilperin Posted By: earlybird- Fri, 24 57 2017 02:57:21 GMT President Trump delivered an ultimatum to House Republicans on Thursday night: Vote to approve the measure to overhaul the nation’s health'care system on the House floor Friday, or reject it and the president will move on to his other legislative priorities. The president, through his aides, signaled that the time for negotiations was over with rank'and'file Republicans who were meeting late at night on Capitol Hill to try to find common ground on the embattled package crafted by House Speaker Paul D.
