Nikki Haley always has been pro-Israel. But as U.N. Ambassador, she doesn’t get to voice purely personal opinions, but rather, speaks for the administration.

I don’t know whether Donald Trump or his aides had any improper contacts with Russian Intelligence officers.

Neither do you, or the media. The Intelligence Community might know, but they have provided zero facts either officially or through leaks to prove any improper, much less illegal, conduct took place.

Instead, we have trial...

Rasmea Odeh is rising to prominence in radical circles in the U.S.

In addition to injecting her anti-Israel activism into Black Lives Matter protests, which we previously covered, Rasmea is part of a group organizing a planned “national strike” of women in March 2017, to protest Donald Trump.

Isreali Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting the U.S. this week, and will meet President Trump.
