Q&A: Waiting for the final Mueller report and what happens next

By CHAD DAY and ERIC TUCKER WASHINGTON  — America is waiting for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. But anyone looking for a grand narrative on President Donald Trump, Russian election interference and all the juicy details uncovered over the past 22 months could end up disappointed. The exact timing of Mueller’s endgame is unclear. Attorney General William Barr, who oversees the investigation, has said he wants to release as much information as he can about the inquiry into possible coord...

Left’s Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations

Opinion Left's Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Having embraced “Medicare-for-all,” free college tuition and a Green New Deal that would mandate an early end of all oil, gas and coal-fired power plants, the Democratic Party's lurch to the left rolls on. Presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren both called last week for race-based reparations for slavery. “Centuries of slavery, Jim Crow, legal discrimination and segregation, and discrimination tha...

President Trump Saves The Last Tank Factory In The Western Hemisphere ~ VIDEO

Lima, Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- In 2012, the Obama Administration sought to close one of America’s premier defense facilities as part of mandated budget sequestration. Congressional Republicans managed to stop them, but the number of employees at the plant still plummeted to just 75. “Enter President Trump,” writes White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro in The New York Times, “with a far different view of the role of a strong military in both defending our homelan...

GOP Senators Push Back Against Trump’s Relentless McCain Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) — Casting aside rare censure from Republican lawmakers, President Donald Trump aimed new blasts of invective at the late John McCain , even claiming credit for the senator’s moving Washington funeral and complaining he was never properly thanked. By the time the president began his anti-McCain tirade in Ohio on Wednesday, several leading Republicans had signaled a new willingness to defy Trump by defending the Vietnam War veteran as a hero seven months after he died of brain c...

Federal judge casts doubt on Trump’s drilling plans because they ignore climate change

By JULIET EILPERIN WASHINGTON – A federal judge ruled late Tuesday that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West. The decision by U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras of Washington marks the first time the Trump administration has been held to account for the climate impact of its energy-dominance agenda, and it could have sweeping implications for the president’s plan to boost fossil fuel production a...

Uncle Joe Biden Meets Hollywood McCarthyism — and Folds

Opinion He is humble, gracious and respectful to a fault, and his kindness probably inflames his intolerant enemies all the more because it exposes their contrasting gracelessness, intolerance and mean-spiritedness. USA – -(Ammoland.com)- I don't know which is worse, the intolerant left's condemnation of former Vice President Joe Biden for saying Vice President Mike Pence is a “decent guy,” or Biden's shameless groveling and apology. Biden committed his unforgivable infraction during a spee...

Crucial animal protection laws for the sage grouse being eliminated by the White House

The White House is eliminating crucial animal protection laws for the sage grouse. The protections, originally put in place by President Barack Obama, are being rolled back to open millions of acres of land for gas and oil development. Conservationists warn the move could land the sage grouse back on the endangered species list. The Donald Trump administration’s new plan targets 8.7 million acres of Sagebrush Focal Areas, an important habitat for the sage grouse and hundreds of other wildlife. ...

The fork in the road for social media and our society

The horror from Christchurch, New Zealand, that exploded across newspaper pages and television, computer and smartphone screens this weekend captured imaginations in ways that no one could possibly have imagined beforehand. The fact that one individual armed with a semi-automatic rifle could visit such an outrage upon people worshipping in a place of religion isn’t the worst of it, awful and distressing though this event is with at least 50 people shot dead and scores wounded, some in cr...

What socialism is — according to Michael Harrington

Michael Harrington was a public intellectual who strove to help the poor and inspired a generation of socialists. He was the first chairman of the Democratic Socialists of America, and nearly ran for president in 1980. While he is far from the only influential thinker on the American left, his ideas have had an outsized influence over the last sixty years. The United States is seeing a renewed interest in left-wing ideas. Chicago might have five socialists on its city council by April, a democra...

Joe Biden Accidentally Announces He’s ‘Running’

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Did Joe Biden accidentally reveal his plans to run for the White House? Or was it just another slip of the tongue by the former vice president with a reputation for veering off script? In a keynote speech at a dinner for the Delaware Democratic Party, Biden boasted Saturday that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running.” The only problem is that Biden hasn’t announced whether he will launch a third run for the White House, despite repeatedly teasing the possib...

‘The President Is Not A White Supremacist’: Mulvaney Defends Christchurch Response

The man acting as White House chief of staff protested Sunday that “the President is not a white supremacist” and asserted President Donald Trump had done enough to combat violent Islamophobia, despite Trump’s claim that “Islam hates us” and his minimization of the white nationalist movement. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney rejected the notion that the man detained after murdering 50 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand was a fan of the President...

This Week In Trailers: The Brink, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, One Nation Under Stress, Watergate

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect.

This week we revisit the 2018 midterms, understand why we’re dying younger, give in to an incredible vision, and dissect a crime that took dow...

Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) unabashedly embraced the tactics behind one of the most shameful policies of the Obama era, openly using the guise of her federal authority to berate and not so subtly threaten a bank for lawfully serving businesses that don’t reflect her political views. While the media did their best to protect Barack Obama and his administration from any hint of scandal, two gun related issues man...

Weirdo O’Rourke

Friends of the young Bill Clinton and Barack Obama spoke of the special glow of promise they had about them, even back in their early twenties. Angels sat on their shoulders.

That isn’t my word, it’s how his friends saw him. “You’re supposed to make friends with future secretaries of state, not weirdo musicians,” one O’Rourke pal, Adam Mortimer, told the N...

Potential presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg visits West Hollywood

WEST HOLLYWOOD — South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a potential candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, expressed optimism about his chances for victory Thursday night in West Hollywood. “The path is narrow, but I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t see a path,” Buttigieg told Fox11 at what his staff called a “meet and greet” at Bar Lubitsch. “What we found is, if we get in front of people, they respond.” The not-yet-a-candidate’s name is pronounced “BOOT-edge-edge.” The appr...

In the Woke War against Beto, Root for Beto

Earlier this morning, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke announced that he’s running for president, and there are two things I believe with equal intensity. First, I don’t want Beto to be president. He’s a culturally left economic progressive who may be the serious candidate closest to an actual open-borders position on immigration. Second, I don’t want to see the Democratic party become so radical — and so obsessed with matters of race and privilege — that even Beto is too “moderate” to win.So, in the woke...

Bernie Sanders Boosts Foreign Policy Cred For 2020 With Yemen Vote Win

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) scored a major victory on Thursday when the Senate passed his resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war — one that could help his 2020 prospects. The Senate passed a resolution to defund America’s support for the Saudi-led efforts in the humanitarian disaster, a rare bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia. Sanders has led on this issue for years, working closely with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to ...

The Emerging Democratic Minority

The biases of the media are so pervasive that there is little recognition of the steady disintegration of the Democrats, though it is occurring every day. Rational and intelligent members of the center-Left write to me every week with new concerns about where the Left is going. The Democratic National Committee’s decision not to allow Fox News to put on one of their candidates’ debates confirms the weakness of the party and of its leaders. The process of atomizing society into smaller and smalle...
