U.S. President-elect Donald Trump was scheduled to meet on Wednesday at his Florida resort with the chief executives of two defense contractors he has criticized over project costs. Dennis Muilenburg, of Boeing, and Marillyn Hewson, from Lockheed Martin, arrived at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort where he is spending Christmas. Since winning the Nov. 8 election, Trump has complained about the companies in Twitter broadsides and speeches for costs he said are too expensive, sending defense shares tumbling. Trump has said Boeing's costs to build replacements for aging Air Force One planes - one of the most visible symbols of the U.S. presidency - are too high and urged the federal government to "Cancel order!" Trump has said the planes, which are in the early stages of developmen...
Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald is having a doozy of a week. He followed up his fake news story about Trump supporters booing deceased astronaut John Glenn (retracted by Newsweek) by making a total ass out of himself on Tucker Carlson’s show. The slippery Eichenwald failed to answer the Fox host’s simple question about a story that President-elect Donald Trump had been in a mental hospital, instead spending nearly nine minutes wiggling like a pig in hot oil to the bemusement of the host. Now Eichenwald has admitted that he made the whole thing up. As reported by Business Insider “Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald says Trump mental hospital claim was intended as ‘signal to a source’”: Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald said Tuesday his baseless allegation that President-elect Donald Trump was onc
Bill Clinton was recently interviewed and went on a very angry vindictive anti-Trump rant. He was asked about the possibility of Russian cyber attacks affecting the election. “You would need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on,” said Bill. He went on to blame James Comey’s investigation. But Bill, you would need to have a single digit IQ to not recognize that America had made up its mind about Hillary way before Wikileaks or James Comey’s investigation. He went on to criticize how Trump claimed he won in a landslide. Apparently, it wasn’t enough. “Landslide? I got something like 370 electoral votes. That was a landslide,” he said. According to Politico he also critiqued Trump for calling him the day after the election acting strangely friendly. Finally, he
Nobody on Fox News has done a better job of silencing bitter idiotic liberal activists and making them see the errors of their ways than Tucker Carlson. Carlson keeps inviting these extremists on Tucker Carlson Tonight and forcing them to confront their fallacies in humiliating fashion. Tucker recently had liberal writer Daniel Brezenoff on his show to discuss the Electoral College. Brezenoff, who founded the Electoral College Petition and tried to get electors to betray the American voting public, accused Tucker of lying. Tucker ripped him apart. Stated Tucker charitably, “You’re against the electoral college, and I think you make a pretty fair case that it’s less democratic than one man, one vote voting, and you’ve written a fair amount about it. I don’t agree with you, but I think
Donald Trump won the Electoral College vote on Monday and secured his election as the 45th president of the United States, as the latest – and perhaps last – stop-Trump movement failed to gain traction in state capitals. A fervent push by anti-Trump forces to persuade electors to defect had turned the normally mundane civic procedure into high drama. But Trump easily surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win, as representatives tabbed to cast ballots in accordance with their states’ Nov. 8 decision mostly adhered to the election results. After all the states had voted, Trump finished with 304 votes and Clinton had 227. Texas put Trump over the top, despite two Republican electors casting protest votes. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/810996052241293312 India
Electors are set to gather in every state on Monday to formally elect Donald Trump president even as anti-Trump forces try one last time to deny him the White House. Protests are planned for state capitals, but they are unlikely to persuade the Electoral College to dump Trump. An Associated Press survey of electors found very little appetite to vote for alternative candidates. Republican electors say they have been deluged with emails, phone calls and letters urging them not to support Trump. Many of the emails are part of coordinated campaigns. "The letters are actually quite sad," said Lee Green, a Republican elector from North Carolina. "They are generally freaked out. They honestly believe the propaganda. They believe our nation is being taken over by a dark and malevolent for...
So this is how reality ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter. It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians. The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism. But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party
The earliest you can have Loan debt forgiven under current plans is 20 years. Democrats have used generous student loan repayment plans and dramatic proposals about cutting the cost of college as a way to court young voters this election. Now Donald Trump is doing the same. The GOP candidate promised at a campaign event in Columbus Thursday that if elected, he’d implement an income-based repayment plan that’s more generous than any of the existing government plans. Graduates would pay 12.5% of their income for 15 years before the remaining balance would be forgiven. Trump also said he turn a “confusing maze” of repayment plans into one simple income-driven option. Democrats and consumer advocates have also pushed for reducing the number of repayment plans to make it less confusing f

You have no doubt heard that Aspirin can save your life if you are experiencing a heart attack or stroke. According to experts, it’s partial cholesterol blockages that are most likely to cause a ruptured or blocked artery. And when an artery ruptures, it attracts platelets to the site of the wound. Platelets are the tiny blood cells that trigger blood clotting. Over time, a clot, also known as a thrombus, can build up on site of the rupture. And as the clot continues to grow, it eventually blocks the artery. If this blockage completely covers the artery, it ultimately deprives a portion of your heart muscle of brain of oxygen. This, of course, results in the death of essential cells, and may ultimately lead to a heart attack or stroke . For years, doctors have recommended taki
