Mattis responds to the US bombing civilians in ISIS-held Iraq – Business Insider

But when confronted with mounting evidence about the troubling trend, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis did not deny or demure — he gave a circumspect response. “There is no military force in the world that has proven more sensitive to civilian casualties,” Mattis told Reuters reporters. “We go out of our way to always do everything humanly possible to reduce the loss of life or injury among innocent people. The same cannot be said for our adversaries.”

Senate Supreme Court battle: Schumer headed for epic clash with McConnell – POLITICO

“There’s been an almost seismic shift in the caucus,” against Gorsuch, Schumer said. As for McConnell changing the rules in response, the minority leader added: “I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion. … There are people in his caucus who really don’t want to change the rules, OK?” Schumer also insists he has the “upper hand” in negotiations to keep the government open, reasoning that Republicans will get blamed for a shutdown even if it’s Democrats who vote down a spending bill because it contains funding for the border wall.

0512_pamela_geller_cog

Pamela Geller, a free-speech activist and harsh critic of Islamic supremacism, has charged that the FBI, under Barack Obama, likely wanted her dead. Geller, the author of “Stop the Islamization of America,” said in a radio interview that she based her assessment on a new report that the FBI apparently knew of the planned terrorist attack on the conference she held in Garland, Texas, in 2015, but it did nothing to stop it. “This is egregious. I submit to you the FBI, under the Obama administration, wanted us dead,” she said on WABC New York’s “Bernie and Sid Show.”

Trump Calls for Investigation into the Clintons’ Russian Ties

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Monday evening and asked why aren’t congressional lawmakers probing the various deals, transactions, and connections former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have to Russia.

Trump’s assertion that then-Secretary of State Clinton “allowed big Uranium to go to Russia” and Bill Clinton’s high-dollar “Russian speech” were allegations first reported by The New York Times (NYT) and based on research from the NYT bestseller Clinton Cashauthored by Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer.

The facts found in Clinton Cash, reported by the NYT, and deemed accurate by establishment media reveal how Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State coincided with the influx of tens of millions of dollars from foreign sources into the Clinton Foundation which resulted in favorable actions for Russia’s government.

President Trump told Americans Saturday morning to watch “Justice Jeanine” on Fox News. Jeanine Pirro started her show with a segment calling for House Speaker Paul Ryan to “step down.” Trump publicly expressed confidence in Ryan after the White House-backed Obamacare replacement bill had to be pulled as there weren’t enough votes. However, there have been reports that President Trump and his allies are upset about Ryan’s performance as speaker. Trump directed people through a tweet to watch Pirro, a former county court judge and district attorney. Her “opening statement” was, “Paul Ryan needs to step down as speaker of the house. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill.”

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election could be considered an “act of war” against the U.S.  “There’s no question there was a very serious effort made by Mr. [Vladimir] Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” Cheney said Monday during a speech at the Economic Times’ Global Business Summit 2017 in New Delhi.  “In some quarters, that would be considered an act of war. I think it’s a kind of conduct and activity we will see going forward.
