By Philly, May 26, 2017

NEW YORK (AP) - Financial services firm USAA is facing a backlash to its decision to pull advertising from Sean Hannity's show on Fox News Channel. The company says it is withdrawing its commercials from other opinion-based television shows.

USAA caters to U.S. military members, veterans and their families, and its Facebook page was clogged Friday with messages from customers threatening to end their accounts.

The Inside Story on How Trump Dropped the Hammer on James Comey


By US Defense Watch, May 21, 2017

Don’t believe the fake-media story that Trump made a mistake or huge gaffe by firing Comey.
Don’t believe the media narrative from the left that it was an attempt to silence Comey from some investigation into Trump.
Don’t believe the RINO narrative that Comey is a good guy just trying to do his job in terrible circumstances and the timing was bad.
Don’t believe the lie that Comey was admired and respected by career FBI investigators and agents.
Don’t believe the lie that Trump’s “tweets” are not professional and have no strategic purpose. His tweets are weaponized and deadly.

How Sharia Supremacism and Judicial Imperialism Threaten National Security


By National Review, May 27, 2017

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal’s ruling against President Trump’s so-called travel ban empowers both radical Islam and judicial imperialism. The combination portends lasting damage to the United States.

To rehash, the executive order (EO) proclaimed temporary restrictions (the main one, for 90 days) on travel to the United States by the nationals of six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

Leftist Students Target White Professor For Failing To Leave Campus On Day Without Whites


By Daily Wire, May 26, 2017

In an ironic occurrence, a white leftist biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, who objected to leftist student social justice warriors demanding white students and professors leave the campus, was surrounded by the SJWs, who shouted at him that he should be fired or resign.

Bret Weinstein was sympathetic to the SJWs in the past when they urged black and Latino students to boycott classes on their “Day of Absence.” But this year, the students went farther, demanding that all white human beings leave the campus instead.

IHeart Radio On The Ropes


By Market Watch, May 27, 2017

More than six months after Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election, people are still explaining why she lost. Political commentator Al Sharpton is the latest to give it a go.

Sharpton explained in a recent podcast with BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith that Clinton lost to Trump because she took her political base for “granted” and didn’t work for the votes of grassroots progressives who awarded Barack Obama two successful presidential contests.

Marines Drugged, Robbed After Binge In Bogotá, Could Face Charges


By Miami Herald, May 26, 2017

Three married U.S. Marine officers have found themselves under investigation for a night in February that went off the rails in Bogotá, involving allegations they went drinking with some local women, were slipped illicit drugs, robbed of U.S. property and landed in a local hospital emergency room.

The men may have fallen prey to what is known as “burundanga poisoning,” according to a report on the investigation conducted by the Marine Corps Forces, South, a Southern Command subsidiary, and obtained by the Miami Herald.

LAPD Chief Warns of Apocalypse if National Concealed Carry Passes - Breitbart


By Breitbart, May 26, 2017

In a May 25 op-ed published by the Los Angeles Times, Beck wrote, “The mere presence of more concealed weapons on California streets would make police work here much more hazardous.”

Beck did not mention, however, that police officers around the nation support gun rights over gun control and specifically support concealed carry for law-abiding citizens.

By FeeBeacon, May 26, 2017

Clinton was delivering a commencement speech, despite another coughing fit, to her alma mater, where she asserted that there was a "full-fledged assault on the truth." It was during the speech when Merrill went after Linksey on social media.

Inside Hillary Clinton’s Surreal Post-Election Life


By NY Mag, May 26, 2017

When I walk into the Chappaqua dining room in which Hillary Clinton is spending her days working on her new book, I am greeted by a vision from the past. Wearing no makeup and giant Coke-bottle glasses, dressed in a gray mock-turtleneck and black zip sweatshirt, Hillary looks less Clinton and more Rodham than I have ever seen her outside of college photographs. It’s the glasses, probably, that work to make her face look rounder, or maybe just the bareness of her skin. She looks not like the woman who’s familiar from television, from newspapers, from America of the past 25 years, but like the 69-year-old version of the young woman who came to the national stage with a wackadoodle Wellesley commencement speech in 1969.

President Trump Should Be Happy That His Budget is DOA


By Weekly Standard, May 27, 2017

President Trump is no dummy. He chose to exchange gifts with the pope in Rome while leaving his budget director and Treasury secretary in Washington to respond to critics of his budget. Let them take the heat while he takes the bows for a successful trip.

The pontiff, who speaks for the poor, had not seen the Trump budget, which takes a meat axe to programs that are intended to benefit the less well-off. Had he, only heaven knows what he would have told the president. Not that there would have been a need for papal concern. Past budgets were often deemed by Congress to be DOA, dead on arrival. This one, says Representative Don Young, the Republican from Alaska, "was dead before the ink was dry."

New Kushner-Russia Story Stokes Concern of West Wing Leakers


By Life Zette, May 28, 2017

Another Washington Post anonymously sourced hit job dropped on the Trump White House — this one about Jared Kushner asking the Russian ambassador for a “secret channel.” It landed just in time to greet the president upon his return from his first international trip and shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged to “put an end to” the rampant leaks coming from within the government. An administration plagued with leaks is now trying to determine whether recent damaging claims may have been fanned from within the West Wing.

Suit Against Hillary Clinton Over Benghazi Deaths And Emails Is Dismissed


By Politico, May 26, 2017

A federal judge in Washington has dismissed a lawsuit alleging that Hillary Clinton's lax security surrounding her emails led to the deaths of two of the Americans killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

In a ruling Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson tossed out the wrongful death claims as well as allegations that Clinton essentially slandered the parents of the deceased by contradicting accounts the parents gave of events related to their children's deaths.

Merkel Furious With Trump After "Unprecedented" G-7 Failure To Reach Consensus On Climate Change


By Zero Hedge, May 27, 2017

In the end it was not mean to be. As discussed on Friday, during Trump's first G-7 summit, world leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and new French President Emmanuel Macron, had hoped to persuade the the US president to endorse the Paris Agreement climate pledge to fight global warming. By the end of the summit - held at a luxury hotel in Taormina, Sicily that was once a Dominican monastery and base for the Nazi air force during World War Two - they realized they had failed, as Trump "underscored his determination to break the global mold" by refusing to follow the Group of Seven line not only on global warming but also by resisting measures on trade.

MSNBC Chief Phil Griffin Re-ups Amid Historic Ratings


By Hollywood Reporter, May 26, 2017

Phil Griffin, the longtime president of MSNBC, has signed a new contract to remain at the cable news network, a source with knowledge of the deal tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes as MSNBC has seen its fortunes rise because of its coverage of the early chaotic days of the Trump administration. To be sure, all three of the top cable news networks were up in the first quarter of the year. But MSNBC has bested even perennial leader Fox News Channel in the all-important 25-54 demographic during primetime in recent days. And The Rachel Maddow Show has been the No. 1 cable news program since March.

Bin Laden’s Son Steps Into Father’s Shoes As Al-Qaeda Attempts A Comeback


By Washington Post, May 27, 2017

The voice is that of a soft-spoken 28-year-old, but the message is vintage Osama bin Laden, giving orders to kill. When the audio recording began turning up on jihadist websites two weeks ago, it was as if the dead terrorist was channeling himself through his favorite son.

“Prepare diligently to inflict crippling losses on those who have disbelieved,” Hamza bin Laden, scion of the Sept. 11, 2001, mastermind, says in a thin baritone that eerily echoes his father. “Follow in the footsteps of martyrdom-seekers before you.”
