Republican Paul Ryan - the highest ranking member of Donald Trump's party in the House of Representatives - has been apparently caught on camera in a fuming, four-letter tirade over a press conference on the President's Muslim ban. The House Speaker appeared to have been recorded ranting at aides after a fraught press conference on the chaos that has followed Trump's executive order. He insisted he supported the ban, but said its rollout had been "regrettable." And he said the party's Congressional leadership was only made aware of the contents of the Order "as it was being rolled out." But as he left the podium, he was apparently heard fuming: "F**k. Waste of my f***ing time." Trump signed the order on Friday - Holocaust Memorial Day. It indefinitely bans Syrian refugee...
In its hysteria-driven coverage of President Trump’s immigration order, the mainstream media forgot to mention this: most of the country supports it. Agenda A recent Quinnipiac poll indicated that 48 percent of the nation approves of "suspending immigration from terror prone regions, even if it means turning away refugees," while 42 percent oppose such a measure. In contrast, Americans did not agree with Obama’s decision to open the door to more Syrian refugees; at the end of 2015, a Quinnipiac poll revealed that 51 percent of the country stood against the move, while only 43 percent supported it. There is the problem for Democrats -- even as they rant and rave over Donald Trump’s assault on the progressive values of the elite establishment, consumer confidence has soared to 12-y
President Donald Trump went after Madonna big time Thursday night, calling Madonna "disgusting" for musing out loud she was thinking of "blowing up the White House." Trump went on Sean Hannity's show on FNC and did not hold back. He thinks the singer not only hurt herself very badly by the comment, she hurt the cause for which she was fighting.

Trump said, "I don't mind some humor, but it's terrible ... For them to attack, for NBC to attack my 10-year-old son ... it's a disgrace." Trump added it's not been easy on Barron.

Color me wrong. I thought sanity regarding a US-Mexican wall would prevail after the election. Not only will we have a wall, but the US will add 5,000 border agents, crack down on “sanctuary cities”, and suspend our refugee program. Coming right up, Trump Will Sign Two Executive Orders on Immigration. President Donald Trump will sign two executive orders on Wednesday, including one calling for a “large physical barrier” on the border with Mexico, the White House announced. Press secretary Sean Spicer said the second order would tighten immigration enforcement inside the U.S., in part by trying to compel local law-enforcement agencies to turn over undocumented immigrants to federal authorities. To do that, the new administration would restore the controversial Secure Co
President Trump on Wednesday is expected to order the construction of his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and take other actions on immigration, a cornerstone of his presidential campaign. Trump is planning a visit to the Department of Homeland Security, where he will roll out executive actions on immigration. Staying true to form, Trump took to Twitter Tuesday night, and posted, “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!” Trump's push for a border wall started with his campaign announcement back in June 2015. "I would build a Great Wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pa
The White House is installing senior aides atop major federal agencies to shadow the administration's Cabinet secretaries, creating a direct line with loyalists who can monitor and shape White House goals across the federal bureaucracy. The aides chosen by the White House — given the title of senior adviser in each agency — have already been responsible for hiring at some departments and crafting the blueprint of Trump policy before the Cabinet members win Senate confirmation to take office. They have worked with congressional aides, lobbyists and others seeking influence in the new administration. The arrangement, described by four people involved in the transition planning, appears designed to help the White House maintain control over its priorities despite pledging to give Ca
When we first saw the 2018 Ford Mustang last week, Ford was being coy about exact specifications. Both the GT and the EcoBoost will get horsepower and torque increases Ford said, though the automaker didn't reveal big those increase will be. But we have a theory, based on what seems like a sneaky hint from Ford Mustang GT Autoguide first noticed a tweet from a Ford communications rep, pointing out easter eggs in an image of the 2018 Mustang's new digital gauge cluster. Note the odometer, 1964.5 miles, a reference to the Mustang's first model year, and 289 miles of fuel range, a nod to the displacement of the biggest V8 in the first Mustang GT But look at those bigger numbers. A big four and a big 55. What could that mean? [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CZ5spCn5c4[/emb...
President Trump inherits an increasingly dangerous world and a military that has been severely damaged in recent years. Funding national security, which used to be a bipartisan priority, has become part of the political gamesmanship that so frustrates the American people. Now the new president and the new Congress have a pivotal opportunity to turn things around, and there is much to do. President Trump has made rebuilding our military strength one of his top priorities. More money is certainly required, but so is reform of the Pentagon and how it does business. Over the past two years, the House and Senate Armed Services Committees have made defense reform a very high priority. We have put the military retirement and health care systems on a more sustainable footing. We have
Trump's administration has already delivered a barefaced lie about the physical attendance at his inauguration, and now he's attempting to twist the facts on his television ratings - twisted. which we all know is pretty much what Trump cares the most about in this world. Having spent his entire campaign boasting about his ability to drawn in huge crowds through his presence alone, Donald Trump is now refusing to face the fact that his inauguration didn't draw in the level of viewers he would have hoped for. Wall-to-wall coverage of Friday's event drew in an average of 30.6 million total viewers across the 12 broadcast and cable networks that provided live coverage for the day (via The Hollywood Reporter), which is 18 percent down from the nearly 38 million viewers who tuned in to
It's customary that after the Inauguration ceremony, the new president enjoys a congressional luncheon. However, like most of the tone of this historic presidential campaign, this congressional luncheon was a bit different than previous years. Classiest Moment While it's normal for the president to give a speech at the event, it's rare that one of the people seated at a table is the person he defeated in the election. As the wife of former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presence at the luncheon was expected. When President Donald Trump took the podium, he immediately acknowledged the large elephant in the room. Unlike his campaign rhetoric towards his opponent in the election, Trump exhibited grace and humility towards the Clintons. He bega
