President Trump cracked down on sanctuary cities. He ordered restrictions on federal funding to cities that refuse to turn over undocumented immigrants to the feds. Federal District Court Judge William Orrick, blocked his order. Last year President Obama threatened to pull federal funding from schools that don’t provide transgender restroom facilities. Trump revoked that rule in
Bill O’Reilly joined Roger Ailes in enforced retirement on Wednesday. Both were accused of sexual harassment. Not to worry though. CNN Money says O’Reilly’s golden parachute falls just a little south of the $25 million contract he recently signed. That compares to his former boss’s $40 million bail out. Bill O’Reilly Sexual Harassment Charges Lift All Boats Also, there’s
Did we blow up a North Korean test missile on Sunday? Last month The New York Times said Trump inherited a cyber-warfare button. Here’s a CNN story reporting how it might work: “There is a very strong belief that the US — through cyber methods — has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts
The U.S. dropped the biggest non nuke bomb ever on ISIS caves in Afghanistan last week. The bomb is so huge it has to be loaded into a C-130 transport and then shoved out the back door over the target (here’s a good ABC video if you don’t mind a 16 second commercial). The name of the
President Trump doesn’t look like much of a Russian collaborator lately. Last week he bombed Putin’s Syrian Ally al Assad for using chemical weapons. Weapons the Russians promised to eliminate. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got a chilly reception from his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov and President Putin in Moscow yesterday. And he didn’t bring a reset button with
The cutline on my first sketch for this cartoon read, “You just got x-rayed, searched, and groped… now you’re surprised we’re taking your seat?!” But I changed it when I read that United CEO Oscar Munoz said the airline “re-accomodated” the lucky passengers. CNBC reports Munoz was named communicator of the year by a public relations group in
The Syrian leader used nerve gas on his own people. President Trump responded by using 59 cruise missiles on Syria. An intelligence report says that the North Korean leader used nerve poison on one of his own people too. His brother.
Trump ended Obama’s war on coal, as promised. Come to think of it, I don’t know why Obama declared the war in the first place. Or why Hillary signed on for it. The natural gas industry went to war against coal for them. Gas is cheap, clean, and – despite President Obama’s efforts – plentiful. So, looks like a rout.
Kimberly Strassel has an idea of what could be worse than Russian interference. In her WSJ column she says the bombshell news story of the week was drowned out by the uproar created by California Rep Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intel…
Liberals hate the “intelligence community.” At least they did back in the days when the FBI was spying on Martin Luther King. And the CIA was infiltrating antiwar demonstrations and trying to get Castro to light exploding cigars. Senate and House Democrats Frank Church and Otis Pike investigated the “IC” in 1975. Senator Church called the CIA a rogue

United Airlines created a social media uproar when it kicked two teenage girls off a flight for wearing leggings. Turns out you can wear all the leggings you want. Even if you’re Caitlyn Jenner. The girls were subject to a dress code because they were flying free on an employee pass.
The last Republican majority in the House and Senate was during the Bush administration. They were better known for pork barrel earmarks than governing. Duke Cunningham was convicted of bribery. The Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, finally went to prison last year.
