Pentagon states we never talk about this. How will trump worshippers spin this.

Seems more and more as time goes on people just forget history and do it all over again. Sad.

I wonder if it is because we now have a FLOTUS that can't pee standing up. I'm sure if she was moving into the White House, you would be complaining about her not being on the current trip with your and my president. Even as great as she is, she can't be in 2 places doing 2 different things at the same time. BTW, hillary STILL isn't your or my prez. But don't worry. You will be able to say Madame President soon enough. A little less...

Of course history is sanitized. Everyone's history is sanitized. Is the history of the North any less sanitized than the history of the South, with the fiction that the war was fought to eliminate slavery? Do you think it is somehow superior to demonize the South? Either approach is to ignore reality in order to create an imaginary history. The people who fought in that war were patriots. That was a time when the United States was less than...

At least we have lbur to tell us from her personal knowledge what people over 150 years ago had in their hearts and minds. But she is wrong about the confederate soldiers not being patriots and fighting against the US. To paraphrase the first Republican president, we have the right to change our government politically or by force. And in fact, the South was just resisting the North that was changing the federation of states and violating A10. The North carried...

I sought out the earth shattering clips of Melanie and the hand debacle. Wow! I am ecstatic that world news is so devoid of news worthy of attention. I can imagine the angst of professional news anchors at having to report news that belongs in the gossip columns. The one clip I saw/listened to the reporter sounded so bored and so obviously reading the script that it sounded like a Saturday Night Live skit. My apologies to those folks. Maybe there were...

The police statement stands for itself. Why is the president getting lawyered up and Flynn ready to take the 5th over "fake news".Flynn can take the 5th but his companies can't. Former CIA Brennan said there was information between the Trump campaign and worthy of informing the FBI to investigate collusion. And Trump ask 2 chiefs of intelligence agency to tell the media there was no collusion.This did not make the...

The perpetrators and victims of slavery are long, long gone. Black people in America face a lot of obstacles, but old monuments and place names are way down the list. What really irks me is the blind eye often turned to the true history. Two well known figures from the time made these statements (paraphrased as I do not have time to look them up.) 1) I do not forsee a time when Whites and Blacks will ever live as equals. 2) If we do not promote the...

Why would everyone interviewed say one thing then deny it when the police were told to stand down and call it a robbery gone wrong when there was no robbery. Funny that the FBI was not called in to investigate a DNC Staffers death when we have so much talk about collusion with Russia and Hillary's email server hacked. WHY???

I know you insist Obama is Muslim,but we still don't know what Trump believes in. Trump's remarks about Hillary having no stamina has come back to bite him in the behind.He even bragged about how strong and healthy he was,and this is just hie first trip abroad.

Poor Seth was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wonder what he was robbed of, besides his life? Not his wallet, watch, or phone. Just another unfortunate Clinton associate that crossed them then ended up dead under mysterious circumstances. "We do not need to honor slaveholders,rapist,murderers and land stealers no matter what party they belonged to." True. We do not need to honor the history of the Democratic party. By the way, lbur, did you know there is...

Trump did not even show his wife respect today when taking photos with Israel leader and his wife.Trump stood in front of Melania and did not even put his arm around her as the Israel leader did so.Maybe he was still sore after Melania slapped his hand away coming from the plane in full view of the world.School is out and have not seen photos of any moving van from NY at...

So far signs point to robbery.Seems like no one else believes this except you and Sean Hannity.Even Fox staffers are embarassed by his promotion of this conspiracy theory and wants it to stop before they lose what little credibility they have left.

But, the destruction, and defacing of monuments across the South, in the effort to erase history is an abomination. It reminds me of the ancient Pharaohs going out and hacking the faces of their predecessors off of statues. It is really hard to fathom what the perpetrators think they are accomplishing with these acts of vandalism.

Specifically the democrats attempt to hide their racism and responsibility for slavery and the war. Too many people (including blacks) are starting to see how the dems really feel about and treat blacks and others. If they can get rid of the past, they can make people forget. I wonder if we will stand up to them when they start banning and burning books?

Hate to see Obama get a taxpayer check every month when he is retired. He didn't earn his check when he was the president. He sure doesn't deserve one now. He will probably send it to the terrorist to help them fight Trump and kill American infidels.

You are the most unreal person I can imagine. Of course the people are hand picked. You ever see the US let just anyone get close to a foreign political leader? Why put a terrorist in the background. Maybe Trump knew Obama and Michelle knew better since they are in the Muslim family. With Trump being a Muslim, Michelle showed disrespect to both Obama and the Saudis when they went to Saudi.

They accuse him of every thing you could dream up to say bad about someone. I can't even spell the words the democrats call him. They want to impeach him before he even gets started good.

Unfortunately, Trump, by his own words, believes that he intuitively knows everything. You would, of course, recognize Trump as a fool if he started diagnosing diseases without consulting a physician. Handling intelligence is an equally complex task, as every scrap of information contains multiple levels of information. Not only does it reveal the surface layer, but it also speaks to what level of information we possess, what...

Lbr?, you need to take a chill pill before you have a stroke. And you don't need to spend time and effort asking God to help America; Trump is on the job and helping us just fine. Steve, the only sources for all of the anti Trump hoopla are unnamed, i.e. made up.

Do you think past presidents have not shared information of similar value in the past, or they have not had a mole in their organization to share it?

"loyal to no one" "His staff has had an intervention with him That would seem to require very personal contact with Mr. Trump or his staff. I tried to find facts regarding that and only saw unsubstantiated "reports" who referred to "others" or vague "reports".

Trump gave his "I am not a crook" speech. It is increasingly obvious that he really is in collusion with the Russians. He admitted to giving them classified information. Even if the information he gave them was harmless in and of itself, there is no question it would give the Russians valuable insights into what we know, and how we know it.

For 11 days I had no access to the internet, nor TV, nor newspapers. It was great! Of course, we all have to return to the real world eventually, and there was nothing there that was a surprise. I said before he got the nomination that Trump was unfit to serve as president, and he confirms that every day. It is amazing that anyone other than SUI could be so unaware of the way that a free country operates. Although he clearly...

And I will bet that he will not make Ivanka give back that $ 100 million given to her charity.When Hillary got 10 million from the Saudis for charity when not even Sec of State he criticized her contantly and said" Hillary must return all money from such countries".

He lowered his head a little (since he is so tall) so they could slip the medal over his head. If you have to think of that as bowing down to them so your little feelings don't get hurt then go for it. Have some ice cream while you're at it. Two scoops.

Where were Trump's security team when all those Muslims had swords? Looked to me like everyone was having a good time. Even the King tried his hand at honoring Trump at the celebration but was having trouble holding his sword up and finally had to sit down. Of course, Trump wasn't raising his sword up high either and was out of step with the others. I don't remember seeing...

Now he is in Saudi and no telling what Trump will tell them. He has talked to Japans leader and South Korea. You are only concerned with what Trump and Putin talked about.

The only muslims Trump cares about are the rich ones he can make a buck off of.He said Islam hates us and he wants a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the U.S,now you decide if he is pro muslim.I want to see him address the regular everyday crowd of muslims there...

Do you really think Trump has never spoken to or dealt with the leader of Saudi Arabia? Trump has borrowed money from Saudi and made other deals and knows all about their culture. Trump has been to Israel and doesn't let Israel tell him what to do. He has even refused to go to the first place they were going to meet, because Israel said he couldn't land his helicopter on the site. Instead he will speak in Jerusalem.

When Flynn came into Trumps team he told the people in charge that he WAS a foreign agent for Turkey, but not that he was under any investigation.

There is however a shortage of decent reliable news. The left wing media industrial complex is really doing itself a disservice.

My second was what is so wrong about sharing the information about laptop bombs? Do we not care about Russian lives because of Putin? My third was who leaked this information in the first place?

Gowdy agreed with me that what James Comey did was the best thing he could have done, BECAUSE, Gowdy continued, he, Gowdy, had classified clearance and knew what James Comey knew about the case and circumstances involved.

He lost the respect of the public by being nominated by o'bummer. Of course, he could regain some of it by being nominated by Trump. Most people would realize he is likely from the regressive left; otherwise, why would bone-head have nominated him? I'm sure Trump would keep him on a short leash. But even tho he wouldn't be a good one, I would like to see him nominated because I'd really like to see the confirmation hearings.

If he was going to end up saying they wouldn't prosecute her, he sure didn't need to lead up to it by spending several minutes spelling out all the illegal things she did, and he really didn't need to lie to us about intent being needed as an element of the crime.
