John Brennan's Russian-Trump testimony big nothingburger

- The Washington Times

John Brennan, former CIA director, said during congressional testimony this week that Russian officials most definitely tried to interfere in America's 2016 elections, and that he was concerned they may have recruited some of President Donald Trump's aides to help with the sabotage. More conjecture, suggestion and innuendo, once again. Nothing factual to show that Trump worked with Russia to steal the election.

Milo erupts on Ariana as 'too stupid,' too 'pro-Islam'

- The Washington Times

Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative writer, went on a rant against Ariana Grande on his Facebook account, calling out the pop star for her naive views of Islam. But the slam is perhaps a bit unfair. After all, Grande isn't the policy-maker for open borders and red-carpet roll-outs to migrants from terror hot spots.

Trump budget a good step in pro-taxpayer direction

- The Washington Times

President Donald Trump is proposing in his "New Foundation for American Greatness" plan some of the largest cuts to government programs the country's seen in a decade, including a provision that will reign in debt and cut spending by $3.6 trillion over the next ten years. Of course, the left is already crying.

ISIS, radical Islam rear at Ariana Grande concert

- The Washington Times

Twenty-two people were killed and another 59 injured in what British Prime Minister Theresa May is calling an "appalling terrorist attack" at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena. And it wasn't long after that ISIS, surprise, surprise, claimed responsibility.

Iran laughably rips Trump for spreading 'Iranophobia'

- The Washington Times

Iran, reacting to President Donald Trump's speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, called out the commander-in-chief for his blunt rhetoric and accused him of harming Tehran's reputation in the Middle East. Consider this your Monday morning laugh. You're welcome.

Notre Dame snowflakes exit, stage right, for Mike Pence

- The Washington Times

Vice President Mike Pence's graduation ceremony speech at Notre Dame caused quite a few students -- offended students, apparently -- to exit, stage right, and leave the event. America, meet the graduating class of 2017 -- too weak to listen to countering views.

Jason Chaffetz's right: Where's the memo, Mr. Comey?

- The Washington Times

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, in a Thursday "Good Morning America" interview, wondered aloud where the now-famous James Comey memos were -- and whether the fired FBI director really was going to release them for public viewing. These are good questions. The American public has a right to see the so-called evidence being used to take down President Donald Trump.

Comey: Higher-ups never asked for halt to FBI investigations

- The Washington Times

James Comey, just-fired FBI director, said in a Senate hearing earlier this month that he's never been asked by higher-ups to back off an investigation for political reasons, an interesting remark given the fact President Donald Trump's now being accused of that very thing.

John McCain wildly proclaims 'Watergate' at Trump's door

- The Washington Times

Sen. John McCain, self-proclaimed Republican but not-so-secret Democrat, came out in full force against his own party's president, saying the many scandals rocking the White House lately are reaching "Watergate" proportions. Easy there, McCain. Let's reel back the rhetoric a bit and consider a more level-headed look at these so-called scandals.

Kimberly Guilfoyle would be great

- The Washington Times

Fox News host, attorney and all-around blunt talker Kimberly Guilfoyle has been making the media rounds of late, suggesting personal interest in replacing Sean Spicer as White House press secretary. This would be a great move for the White House -- for President Donald Trump's defense team.
