BEIJING-Gen. Xu Qiliang is China's most powerful military boss and as vice chairman of the all-powerful Central Military Commission was the last meeting for Defense Secretary Jim Mattis during a two-day visit to China last week. Xu greeted Mattis warmly at the ceremonial Chinese Defense Ministry building known as Bayi.
Describing Trump as uniquely antagonistic to the First Amendment among presidents is preposterous. Members of the Fourth Estate, especially the TV reporters, have a curious view of the First Amendment.
As the Left continues to spiral out of control -- foaming, spitting, frothing in rage -- it's time to state the obvious: that in the battle for the soul of America, there can be only one winner. Either we retain as much as possible of the country-as-founded, including its national character, or w...
In 2012, Hillary Harris, 31, said she learned through adoption records that she had a half-sister out in the world named Dawn Johnson. Five years later, Harris shockingly discovered that Johnson had been living right next door to her for two months. "It was overwhelming to say the least,"
With the installation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and a yet-to-be-named reliable replacement for the unreliable Anthony Kennedy, Donald Trump will have confirmed himself as the most consequential conservative president of the modern era (or a close second to Reagan if you're nostalgic).

For weeks you have taught your class how a caterpillar 🐛 becomes a butterfly 🦋 by nurturing one in your classroom...
You go outside to release the butterfly into the world and inspire the children with the wonders of nature... then this happens... pic.twitter.com/qGhVCFiUe4
Literally in tears. Haven’t felt this hopeless in a long time. With Justice Kennedy leaving, we now have two options as Americans: get fitted for your Nazi uniform or report directly to your death camp. How do you fight the darkness without light? My spark is going out. #SCOTUS— Matthew K. (@mattiek17) June 27, 2018
Every single institution or agency in our government is being dismantled by this administration. Congress, gone, SCOTUS, gone, the Executive branch, in the hands of a madman, the FBI, DOE, EPA, etc. etc. etc. And you thought it couldn’t happen here.— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) June 27, 2018

The illegitimate POTUS will now try to ram a SCOTUS nominee through before Nov. So much for that McConnell rule. Calling on two principled Republicans to stand up against tyranny.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) June 27, 2018
Justice Kennedy retiring... If you are deeply disturbed, absorb the shock. But respond with even more determination. If you see this as a fight for the future of democracy, let those in power know that the will of the majority can still hold sway. https://t.co/lcKhiAgKao— Dan Rather (@DanRather) June 27, 2018
I've never been so frightened for our country. And that's saying a lot, because the past 18 months have been mostly terrifying. How do we survive this? Can we? Can, um, Mueller please hurry up? 😫— Tracey Gaughran (@traceygaughran) June 28, 2018

Kennedy handing his seat over to Trump is the most perfect example *ever* about how it is all the party of Trump. All of it. Kennedy looks down from SCOTUS and sees the man in the White House and says “Yes. Him. I want him to be the one to choose my replacement.”— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) June 27, 2018

It didn't take long for defenders of the FBI's Trump-Russia investigation to claim that the Justice Department inspector general's report found no bias in the bureau's conduct of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, nor in the early days of the Trump-Russia probe.
Once upon a time, the FBI said some thugs planned to rob a bank in town. Thugs are always looking to rob banks. They try all the time. But at this particular time, the FBI was hyper-focused on potential bank robberies in this particular town.
Now fallen into obscurity and disuse, the Contracts Clause was once one of the U.S. Constitution's strongest protections for economic freedom against state interference. Praised by James Madison as a "constitutional bulwark in favor of personal security and private rights," the Clause declares that "No State shall...pass any...Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts."
