    The White House has said Joe Biden will not have the final say on whether Donald Trump can receive intelligence briefings after the president said his predecessor's 'erratic behavior' means 'he might slip and say something'. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki poured cold water on what had appeared to be Biden taking the unprecedented step to deny Trump access to classified information now he has left office.  Psaki said in a statement Saturday the president was merely 'expressing his concern' and will leave the final decision to his intelligence team.  'The president was expressing his concern about former president Trump receiving access to sensitive intelligence, but he also has deep trust in his own intelligence team to make a determination about how to provide intelligence information if at any point the former president Trump requests a briefing,' Psaki said, according to the Washington Post.  It is not clear when...
    Former vice president Joe Biden previously said that he would have gone forward with confirming a Supreme Court justice in an election year if the president had consulted the senate. The Democratic presidential nominee said Friday night that it would be improper for the Senate to vote on replacing former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died Friday, without “full consideration.” “Let me be clear, the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider,” Biden said Friday. “This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That’s the position the United States Senate must take today.” (RELATED: Liberal Groups Warned That Kavanaugh Would Push SCOTUS Dramatically To The Right.

    Ryan Anderson plays the game of football hard, maybe too hard. The Redskins linebacker has been in the news recently after The Athletic’s Ben Standig reported other teams were interested in him.  “If I needed a linebacker, I’d consider a fifth for Anderson,” an NFL source told Standig. “He’s good, not special, but players respect guys like him because they’re tough and play for the team. He’s produced in the NFL, unlike a rookie. He’s young, cheap and can play.” MORE: Favre compares Kaepernick to Pat Tillman Members of the Redskins Brawl podcast were discussing this report when former tight end Garrett Hudson shared a story. Hudson played with Anderson in 2018 and said the linebacker would hit him often during practice. “Of the people that were on the team when I was there in 2018, I don’t think anybody hits harder than Ryan Anderson. I’ve heard him call himself...

    On the fourth anniversary of his death, Muhammad Ali’s only biological son says that his father would be against Black Lives Matter, calling the movement “racist” and the protesters “devils.” The legendary boxer and activist stood up against racism throughout his life, but Muhammad Ali Jr. says his dad would have been sickened by how the protests have turned to violence and looting after the death of George Floyd. “Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place,” he told The Post. “You can peacefully protest. ‘‘My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said all lives matter. I don’t think he’d agree. Of the BLM movement, Ali Jr., a Muslim like his father, said: “I think it’s racist.” “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone — he never singled anyone out. Killing...
    Bradley Cortright June 17, 2020 0 Comments Days before former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s new book is scheduled to be released, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is ripping into Bolton’s character. Bolton’s book is being billed as “the book Donald Trump doesn’t want you to read,” and is supposed to detail Trump’s “Ukraine-like transgressions” which “existed across the full range of his foreign policy.” In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Giuliani was asked about Bolton’s reported concerns over his dealings in Ukraine and effort to dig up dirt on Democrats. Bolton reportedly called Giuliani a “hand grenade who’s going to blow everybody up.” Giuliani responded by ripping into Bolton’s character and said he had a “desire for war” that was “sick.” “The guy was as an atomic bomb,” Giuliani told Fox News, adding, “What I know of what he’s saying about me, he’s not telling the truth. And I...
    "The Five" co-host Juan Williams said Monday that the shooting death of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, a black man, by a white Atlanta police officer should help Americans "understand why people are crying out for reform" of police and law enforcement practices across America. "There was no problem until he refused to be arrested. Then when the scuffle happens, he grabs the Taser and runs away and sadly is shot in the back," Williams said. "Now to me again, it seems to me a situation where he said he was going to run [to] his sister's house. And I just wonder if it wasn't in the public interest to let him run to his sister's house. He could have been picked up later, I think. "Would the public have been less safe if he had run away?" Williams asked. "I don't think there would have been a problem there. But again, you have...

    (CNN)Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli said Sunday that he does not believe that George Floyd's life would have been spared if he were white. Floyd, a black man, was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis last month. His death has sparked nationwide protests against racism and police violence.Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if he thought Floyd would still be alive if he were white, Cuccinelli said, "No, I don't think he would.""What I heard in that eight-and-a-half minute clip was someone who was a bully, who is abusing his position of authority and power in the law," Cuccinelli said in reference to a video of Floyd's death. "And I have a funny feeling, I don't know anything about his professional history, but I have a feeling that we're going to find that he wasn't necessarily that well thought of as a role...
