On Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for possible meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham spent a segment of Friday’s show defending herself against charges of racism. She was just making a joke, a pun, a funny aside, really, when she said that Cavaliers basketball player LeBron James should just “shut up and dribble.”
Evangelist Alveda King announces dedication of the King Family Legacy Library today featuring books, art, music, and more from “the private collections of Naomi and Alveda King.”
There is a downside, though, to this kind of noble lying. Considering that mercenaries like Wagner are a key part of Russia's broader strategy and tactics, it's also important for the U.S. to deny Moscow its plausible deniability.
Maybe the whole idea of administrative law, law different from normal law before independent courts, will be jettisoned. This will be a big day for defendants large and small.

Nothing will come of nothing. That’s the habitual truth that follows the habitual outrage that follows America’s habitual mass shootings.
60 years ago, when high school gun clubs were as common in rural America as cheer leading squads and nearly every household possessed at least one firearm. So what changed? We did.
After every mass shooting event, before the blood even dries, the debates and arguments begin.
For public figures, camera optics are everything. But for businessmen who must please shareholders, the bottom line is it. Today you produce or perish, even if you are a founder.

To be fair, National Review has issued stern editorials. But most of the rah-rah nationalists on cable, talk radio and social media have been remarkably blase about it, more interested in Hillary Clinton's misdeeds than those of a contemptuous foreign power.
Remember how they ridiculed Pence for saying he has a rule that he won't dine alone with a woman who's not his wife or attend events where alcohol is served without his wife? Pence didn't originate the rule. I've heard variations of it from Christians, including my pastor, for years.

The Olympics is not about being a pundit. If athletes want to make political statements after the games, that's appropriate. Making contentious political statements against one’s own home country while the games are taking place is an insult to our country’s political leadership and one’s teammates.
To lift up these victims and assist the many individuals and organizations courageously working to do that, a new, informal team, of which I am proud to be a part, has launched the Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition.
The recent shoot-up at another school raises the specter of children in rage and out of control.
Even worse, this "spend-o-rama" avoids structural reforms to limit, or even reverse, the damage from this midnight raid on the U.S. Treasury. The good news is that it’s never too late for Republicans to burn their white flags and return to battle.
Despite my credentials as a card-carrying Progressive Democrat who worked in the Clinton White House and supported Hillary Clinton for president, I have written here on about why we Progressives can agree with Conservatives and join forces to push back on Big Media.
It now appears that the FBI knew about Nikolas Cruz, the gunman that murdered seventeen people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
This coming week we recognize the federal holiday celebrating George Washington's birthday. Many states now recognize President Abraham Lincoln's birthday on the same day.

As a black American, it was with a great deal of sadness that I said on Newsmax TV’s "America Talks Live" that Barack Obama may go down in history, not only as the first black president, but as the leader of one of the most corrupt administrations in American history!
Benjamin Franklin observed, "Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." It seems future Americans will be paying for a long time for the bad habits of many of our politicians.

I have known Goose Gossage for 45 years and have been friends with him for 40 years. To say that he is one of the toughest guys I have ever known would be an understatement.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 are Democratic sponsored gushers of unbridled illegal immigrant entry, of new voters; also of fraud, waste, and abuse. These laws have transformed the demographics of the U.S.
Venezuela is poised to implode in 2018. But with limited intervention, the United States has an opportunity to prevent a national security crisis while advancing American interests.

Conservatives like myself, who were activists during the Nixon era, thought the media’s bias could not get any worse. Well, we were wrong. The media’s hostility toward the Trump administration takes the cake.
Once again, we hear that some champions will boycott the traditional visit to the White House. How self-defeating, and most of all, sad. Playing football should have nothing to do with politics or who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
With Brexit, Ireland’s closest ally leaves the European Union in 2019. We will learn after March of 2019 whether Brexit leaves Ireland somewhat marginalized within the EU.
Some of Trump’s strongest early successes came through his deregulation victories at the Environmental Protection Agency. But he didn’t do it all on his own. He smartly appointed Scott Pruitt to lead the Agency’s wave of change.
Reach out and touch someone, the neighbor next door, a friend in hospital, an elderly person, someone having a bad day, the poor amongst you, the weak, the vulnerable members of your family or household, your co-workers.

Taking up Rep. Gallagher’s challenges, I am looking for dams to build upstream to drain the swamp. And just remember, some groups making secret contributions on both sides do not want solutions or civil discourse — they just want a controversy to drive votes.
There is a lot of speculation about what to look forward to at the polls in November. There are many factors involved. Let me try to lay out the fight as it is shaping up.
America is more attractive because there are shared values. America is the power guaranteeing these values. Mishandling relations could be painfully harmful. The modern Monroe Doctrine should be based on common goals.

Samsung just wants to get its name out of all this political conflict. The company does big business in Iran, as well as other nations friendly to the Mideastern nation, and it certainly does not want to lose business over social miscues.
Casting non-actors to portray themselves in movies isn’t novel but it is rare and something director Clint Eastwood chose to do in “The 15:17 to Paris” (based on the 2015 Thalys Train Attack beginning in Holland and ending in France) which opened last Friday.
