Politico has a SCOOP.

Trump’s driver’s license casts doubt on height claims:

Donald Trump and his doctor claim he’s 6-foot-3, but his New York driver’s license says he’s actually an inch shorter.

A copy of Trump’s license, obtained by POLITICO through an open-records request, lists the president-elect at 6-foot-2.

We reported yesterday how Egypt decided to pull an anti-Israel resolution, after intervention of Donald Trump. The Obama administration reportedly was ready to abstain and not veto the resolution.

We also noted that other countries had threatened to bring the Resolution to a vote if Egypt didn’t.

Haaretz reports that the vote is...

Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison was fast out of the gate for Chair of the Democratic National Committee, amassing quick endorsements from Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and the AFL-CIO.

But Ellison was barely at the first turn when he stumbled badly in what Ellison and his supporters called a “smear campaign”...

We recently reported on important developments in the immigration fraud trial of convicted supermarket bomber and murderer Rasmea Odeh.

Specifically, the prosecutors obtained a Superseding Indictment which expanded the grounds upon which to convict Rasmea of the single charge of falsely obtaining naturalization. The prosecution signaled, in those new allegations, that it...

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t hesitate to take to social media to get his point across, including when the press treats him unfairly.

(Where have I heard that before?)

But if you read the headlines about some comments he made at a press event, you’d think Netanyahu just admitted to “attacking”, “lashing...

MTV News just released an incredibly racist and sexist video directed at White males.

The video reduces tens of millions of people to stereotypes based on race and sex.

Substitute any other group for White males, and there is no doubt that MTV would be the first make the accusation of racism...

We live in very dangerous times, with Democrats trying to flip the Electoral College against Trump through cajoling, and when that fails, threats and intimidation.

It still seems unlikely that Democrats will pull it off by Monday, December 19, 2016, when the Electoral College votes. I shudder to think what will happen...

Earlier this week Alzoari was assassinated in Tunisia. There has been initial reports that it was a local dispute gone bad, but Hamas is pointing the finger at Israel.

It also is not rewarded in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. Khaled Abu Toameh writing at The Gatestone Institute website, makes the point that Palestinian militants view Israeli concessions as weakness, and actually encourage more intransigence, The Palestinian...

Anonymous sources and leaks have fueled an unhinged quest to flip the Electoral College against Trump.

The narrative has been, depending on which rant you are reading at the moment, that Russia “hacked the election,” was unfair because it didn’t also release RNC emails, Trump is a really bad hombre who must...
