Fox Host On Trump Tax Ruling: Now SCOTUS Has Been Infiltrated By The ‘Deep State!’

Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs railed against the Supreme Court on Thursday, suggesting the justices are now part of the amorphous “deep state” conspiracy and claiming they executed a coordinated effort with “radical” Democrats to undercut President Trump.  In a 7-2 ruling on Thursday, the Supreme Court upheld a New York prosecutor’s criminal subpoena for Trump’s tax returns, but justices left plenty of room for Trump’s legal team to jam up the enforcement of the subpoena with more le...

Trump Gives Putin a Pass on Bounties So He Can Target Leakers Instead

In the days since The New York Times broke the news on U.S. intelligence examining claims of Russian bounties being offered to kill American military personnel in Afghanistan, President Donald Trump has turned his ire not at the Russian government, but instead on two of his favorite enemies: the news media and their confidential sources.According to two people familiar with the matter, the president in recent days has privately expressed—“rather loudly,” in the words of one of the sources—his de...

Gun Grabbers Play Race Card; Guns Blamed for Seattle Shootings

(Screen snip, YouTube, Fox News) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Gun prohibition lobbying groups have evidently decided to play the race card, mixing messages for gun control with allegations of racism, while another fatal shooting in Seattle’s so-called “CHOP” zone is being blamed on guns, rather than on the pe...

Russian Bounties for Killing Americans Go Back Five Years, Ex-Taliban Claims

Taliban veterans like to laugh about the first time, according to their lore, that the Russians dumped a lot of American dollars on them. During the Taliban campaign to take over all of Afghanistan in 1995, they actually had a few fighter planes, and they used one to force a Russian cargo plane—a huge Ilyushin Il-76TD flying for a company called Airstan—to land in Kandahar. The Taliban held the Russian crew members prisoner for a year until, one day, they supposedly “escaped” and managed to take...

GOP Deny, Downplay Questions About Russian Bounty Scandal

One of the few remaining areas of broad bipartisan consensus on Capitol Hill has been a tough policy toward Russia—a topic that frequently creates a stark contrast with President Trump, who has maintained personally warm ties to its leader, Vladimir Putin, and has generally followed behind Congress on Russia countermeasures.But the cognitive dissonance between those things proved increasingly difficult to square on Tuesday for members of the GOP after The New York Times reported that Trump was b...

Intel Proves ‘Russian Bounties’ Were No Hoax, House Dems Say

A group of House Democrats left a classified briefing at the White House Tuesday morning, on  reports that Russia paid Taliban fighters bounties on U.S. soldiers, with complaints that Trump administration officials were not more forthcoming about the intelligence. And they also left with lots of questions about why the president—who has dismissed the story as another “Russia hoax”—is not being more forthcoming with criticism for Russian president Vladimir Putin.“The president called this a hoax,...

Once Again, Congress Is Unable To Act During National Trauma

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a moment, Congress had a chance to act on a policing overhaul, mobilized by a national trauma and overwhelming public support. Those efforts have stalled now and seem unlikely to be revived in an election year. It’s latest example of how partisanship and polarization on Capitol Hill have hamstrung Congress’ ability to meet the moment and respond meaningfully to public opinion. Major changes in policing policy appear likely to join gun control and immigration as social is...

Police ‘Reform’ and the Making of a Racism Narrative

Have you seen that mountain of evidence that Derek Chauvin is a racist? Me neither.In that regard, I’m like the Wall Street Journal’s fearlessly fact-driven Jason Riley. Did some shred of racial animus motivate the since-fired Minneapolis police officer’s killing of George Floyd? For the moment, we have no proof of that -- just a racialist narrative built on the happenstance (no reason to believe it’s more than that right now) that Chauvin is white and Floyd was black.These days, alas, mere happ...
