Trump Gives Barr An Ultimatum: You Could Be ‘Greatest’ AG Or ‘Average Guy’

President Trump on Thursday issued an ultimatum to Attorney General Bill Barr over the months-long probe led by U.S. Attorney John Durham, whom Barr tapped last year to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.

Behind The New Brouhaha Over USPS And The Cost Of Mailing Ballots

When it comes to getting millions of mail ballots out to voters during the current pandemic, election officials are finding themselves between a rock and a hard place. They’re torn between the need to save money — amid a state and local government cash crunch — and the risk of mail ballots not making it to voters in time for them to be returned. The trade-off is being compounded by what vote-by-mail veterans have described as murky and confusing messaging out of the U.S. Postal Service. T...

Pompeo Goes On Attack After IG Report Cites Civilian Casualties From Saudi Arms Sales

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo kept up his attacks on members of Congress Wednesday after an internal watchdog report found that the State Department didn’t fully consider potential civilian casualties when it used emergency powers to sell arms to Saudi Arabia last year. The arms sales supplied Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan with billions of dollars in weapons. Congress had blocked some of the sales for months before Pompeo used a May 2019 emergency declaration to push them...

Wanted by Beijing: An American Citizen Is Charged under Hong Kong National-Security Law

The Chinese Communist Party’s implementation of a new “national security law” in Hong Kong has been as draconian as expected, if not worse. In recent weeks, Beijing has worked swiftly to quash the burgeoning pro-democracy movement in the city, disqualifying candidates, delaying elections for the Legislative Council, and arresting participants in a memorial commemorating the June Fourth Massacre.The new law’s implications for Hong Kong are worrying enough, but it also contains the CCP’s claim of ...

Trump and his aides reportedly think they have Democrats in a 'real pickle' with the COVID-19 aid stalemate

The Democratic-led House passed a huge COVID-19 aid package in May, the Republican-led Senate began discussing its more modest alternative in July, but after talks between congressional Democrats and the White House negotiating team broke down last Friday, it may well be September before any relief package reaches President Trump's desk. "In fact, we are told it could be weeks before any serious talks resume barring any significant events like Wall Street sell-offs or a run of truly dismal e...

AZ Senator Implies Voters In DC And Puerto Rico Don’t Deserve Full Congressional Representation

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally (R) said Tuesday that if Democrats managed to gain control of the White House, the Senate and the House in November, the party would legislate statehood to both Puerto Rico and D.C. — a move that she said would be disastrous for Republicans.  “They’re going to make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state and get four new Democrat Senators,” McSally told NBC News in an interview Tuesday. “We’d never get the Senate back again.” Some have criticized McSally’s remarks as an imp...
