Standing by President Donald Trump‘s decision to revoke John Brennan‘s security clearance, Republican National Committee spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany railed against the former CIA director whom she accused of taking part in a conspiracy to undermine the president. During an appearance on Fox Business Thursday evening, McEnany told host Lisa Kennedy that Brennan couldn’t be trusted, arguing that the president’s move had nothing to do with political vengeance. “John Brennan is a questionable actor to say the least. That’s putting it in a very light and optimistic fashion,” she said. “This guy has a history of serial lying.” But commentator Juan Williams felt the president was making a point of punishing Brennan for his criticism, calling it “something an autocrat or a dictator would do.” “You are revoking this guy’s clearance at this time either to get away from discussions about Omarosa and all of her attacks on the president Continue reading "Kayleigh McEnany Accuses Brennan of Being Part of Anti-Trump Conspiracy: He’s Got a ‘History of Serial Lying’"
On Thursday, multiple outlets reported that President Donald Trump‘s military parade has been postponed. “Breaking: Pentagon says the military parade – requested by the President and originally scheduled for Veterans Day – will be postponed,” CNN’s Jim Sciutto tweeted out.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson also announced the news on his show, saying: “The Pentagon has announced a delay, they say, to President Trump’s planned military parade. The parade was originally scheduled to take place November 10th, the day before Veterans’ Day. It was pushed back to sometime in 2019. The overall cost, which is inspired by a similar parade in France, expected to be $80 million in that ballpark.” Earlier today, NBC reported the costs of the parade had skyrocketed.

Corey Stewart is currently the Republican nominee for Senate from Virginia. Yet, just last year during a campaign event he was spouting racist stereotypes about NFL players while at a campaign event. “A lot of these guys, I mean, they’re thugs, they are beating up their girlfriends and their wives,” Stewart said in September 2017, according to CNN. “You know, they’ve got, you know, children all over the place that they don’t pay attention to, don’t father, with many different women, they are womanizers. These are not people that we should have our sons, or any of our children look up to. We need to have our children look up to real role models.” The event was entirely centered around talk of protesting football players and was broadcast on Facebook Live. During the same event where one participant dubbed the NFL the “National Felon League”, Stewart also said Continue reading "GOP Senate Candidate Corey Stewart Got Very Racist About NFL Players at 2017 Event"
One day after President Donald Trump‘s decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan‘s security clearance, former Navy Admiral William McCraven demanded his be revoked, too, in a show of solidarity. McCraven made the request in a fiery Washington Post op-ed Thursday, backing Brennan as “a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.” McCraven himself held a prominent position in national defense, leading the U.S. Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014, starting his tenure by overseeing the Navy SEAL operation that killed Osama bin Laden. Being stripped of his clearance, McCraven said, would allow him to join the resistance to Trump’s presidency. “Like most Americans, I had hoped that when you became president, you would rise to the occasion and become the leader this great nation needs,” he wrote, making it clear Continue reading "Navy Admiral Who Oversaw Bin Laden Raid Demands Trump Revoke His Security Clearance: You’ve Humiliated the Nation"
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) just secured the nomination for state attorney general, but one influential Democrat is warning his party to steer clear of the candidate whose campaign has been surrounded by scandal amid abuse allegations from his ex-girlfriend. Robby Mook, former campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, cautioned Thursday that while it remains unclear whether the claims are true, the Democratic National Committee shouldn’t offer its support just yet. “I think the DNC took the appropriate step here by saying they are going to look at it, Mook told CNN’s Kate Boulduan, referring to the organization’s move to review the accusations. “I don’t know what the particulars are. If there’s real evidence that something wrong was done, then he needs to face the consequences of that.” Mook also advised patience, but added that campaigning alongside Ellison would be a mistake. “I think it’s still very Continue reading "Former Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook to Dems: Don’t Campaign With Keith Ellison"
Since the beginning of July, when it exploded nationally that prominent Republican Congressman Jim Jordan was being accused of having enabled sexual abuse of wrestlers by a team doctor when Jordan was an assistant coach at Ohio State thirty years ago, I have been skeptical of the media’s preferred narrative. I have written twice about the factual problems with the case and the dangers of the media rushing to presume that one story seems a lot like previous ones, thus creating confirmation bias. Since then, as I am all too prone to doing, I have spent an absurd amount of time trying to figure out what really did and did not happen in this strange story, which took another dramatic turn late last week. That’s when the most famous of Jordan’s “accusers,” former pro wrestler Mark Coleman, walked back much of his original story and distanced himself from the Continue reading "After Taking a Deep Dive into the Jim Jordan/Ohio State Controversy, Here Are Some Conclusions"
After his unceremonious ouster from the White House, Steve Bannon fled to Europe, where he planned to guide insurgent right-wing candidates to political success, sparking a nationalist revolution across the continent. The reception was lukewarm. The Washington Post detailed the “chilly” reception to Bannon’s quixotic plans of fomenting another alt-right revolt. So it appears Bannon is back to doing what he was known for before serving as President Donald Trump‘s comically villainous consigliere: making terrifying documentaries about the American Left bringing on the apocalypse. The trailer for Trump @War, Bannon’s new documentary, set for release just ahead of the 2018 midterms, premiered on Axios Thursday morning. It opens with dramatic footage of Trump supporters getting attacked in public between clips of CNN’s Don Lemon pinning responsibility for the president’s actions on them. Then appears former Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam, inexplicably dressed in a large trench coat and
