Father of slain Navy SEAL demands investigation into 'stupid mission' that killed his son  

Bill Owens, the father of the Navy SEAL killed in Donald Trump's first approved military mission wants answers. It was the first military counter-terrorist operation approved by the new president, who signed the go-ahead Jan. 26 — six days into his term. "Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn't even barely a week into his administration? Why? For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because...

In a statement on Sunday, Bilden said the position would cause "undue disruption" to his family's financial interests, and he would not be able to satisfy rules by the Office of Government Ethics. Bilden also said he still "fully supports" Trump's agenda. Defense Secretary James Mattis said in a statement he will make a new recommendation to Trump soon. Ea

Heather Mac Donald, City JournalOn February 1, rioting broke out in Berkeley to prevent a flamboyantly provocative Donald Trump supporter from speaking on the University of California campus. Black-masked anarchists beat and pepper-sprayed supposed attendees of the event and hurled explosive devices at police officers; the vandals ransacked and torched banks, retail businesses, and campus facilities.

Dozens Of Gravestones Toppled, Broken At Philadelphia Jewish Cemetery  

Numerous headstones have been knocked over and broken at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia in an apparent act of vandalism. Aaron Mallin told ABC 6 that he discovered what had happened on Sunday, when he went to Mount Carmel Cemetery to see his father’s grave. He said he hopes the culprits were “just some drunk kids” but that it was hard to believe it wasn’t a targeted attack because so many headstones had been pushed over. Dozens of the grave markers had been affected an

Santa Cruz Police: Homeland Security Lied, Used Gang Probe As Cover For Immigrant Sweep  

Furious California police officials have threatened to end cooperation with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security after they accused federal agents of using a gang investigation as cover to ferret out undocumented immigrants. “I want to underscore that we would never have participated or cooperated in this operation if we had known that it included immigration enforcement,” said Kevin Vogel, police chief of Santa Cruz, which is one of a number of California sanctuary citie

Hansen trounces GOP foe in Delaware state Senate District 10, keeping legislature Democratic  

Stephanie Hansen won a decisive victory over her opponent Saturday to keep the Delaware Senate in Democratic hands. Republicans had voiced a slight hope they might gain control of District 10 and thus secure a one-vote margin in the 21-seat Senate that was tied 10-10 going into the special election. Such elections typically have low turnouts that favor Republicans. The turnout, however, was more than a third of the registered 35,673 voters in the district, quite good for a special electio...

Why a terrorist attack is more likely with a weak president  

Islamic terrorists want an Islamic holy war. They believe in a clash of civilizations and want to unite all Muslims in a war against the West. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian militant who founded al-Qaeda in Iraq, said before he was killed: The spark has been lit here in Iraq, and its heat will continue to intensify … until it burns the crusader armies in Dabiq. Their propaganda recalls an old prophecy that Islamic armies will rise up to meet the forces of "Rome" (or the W...

Donald Trump Should Be My Plebe  

Bruce Fleming, Baltimore SunI've been an English professor at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis for 30 years. An education within such a service academy (the others are Army, Air Force and Coast Guard) immerses students for four years in an atmosphere heavy with an insistence on leadership. Currently my students' commander-in-chief is a man whose qualities as a leader are the exact opposite of what I believe we are trying to teach.

Kasich says getting rid of ObamaCare entirely is 'not acceptable'  

The impulse of some conservative House Republicans "to say just get rid of the whole thing" in the ObamaCare reform process is "not acceptable," Ohio Governor John Kasich argued during an appearance on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday. "Republicans have to reach out to some of the Democrats" in Congress if they are to craft a new health care program "that still provides coverage to people," the former Republican presidential candidate told host John Dickerson.

I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is un-American.Of course, it was just a tweet, thus far unaccompanied by any state-sponsored efforts to suppress the liberties of the media. Withou

Open thread for night owls: Sanctuary cities challenge Trump regime's assault on immigrants

Whether and how the order can be enforced is yet unclear, but it sent an unsubtle message to cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles: Resistance will not be tolerated. In Texas, Repu...

What a bargain for America, right? Except those savings of $399,999 are chump change compared with what U.S. taxpayers are shelling out for Trump and his family and their jet-setting ways. Estimates are at $10 million to $11.3 million for three weekend trips (so...
