FBN’s Dobbs: Uranium One ‘May Well Turn Out To Be the Biggest Scandal in American Political History’


While speaking with Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large on Friday, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs argued that the Uranium One deal could end up being the biggest scandal in the history of American politics. Dobbs said, “There is no clear statement as to why we would give up, for any reason, any price, 20% of our uranium in this country. And that is a question that is left open still unanswered. and secondly, have you ever heard of anyone putting $145 million, at one moment, into the hands of the Clinton foundation? And the answer is, of course not. These questions, most basic and fundamental, were armed by the very committee made up of the very agencies, departments, and individuals responsible for national security. this, this is the biggest Obama scandal. I think it may well turn out to be the biggest scandal in American political history.” Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough said former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon looks “chubbier than usual” because the Mercers are “shoving money in his pocket.” Scarborough said, “Steve Bannon thinks that you’re the fools. He thinks that — I guess he doesn’t think you can read, because Steve Bannon, he worked, listen, he worked for Goldman Sachs. Now, I’m not knocking working for Goldman Sachs. … But for Steve Bannon to talk to you, and say, they think you’re morons. I don’t want people that work at Goldman Sachs to work in the White House. He worked at Goldman Sachs.” He added, “Did you notice he’s looking a little chubbier than usual? That’s because the Mercers, who are like, billionaires, they’re shoving money in his pocket.” (h/t Mediaite) Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo

Breitbart’s Pollak: Establishment Republicans Have Also Had Their Share of ‘Losers’


Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak told MSNBC’s Ali Velshi on Monday afternoon that the Republican establishment had picked a large number of “losers” in congressional races. Pollak was responding to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his criticism of Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon earlier that day in the White House Rose Garden. McConnell responded to Bannon’s threat to back challengers to incumbent Republicans in Senate primary races by insisting: “You have to nominate people who can win because winners make policy and losers go home.” He specifically named 2010 candidates Christine O’Donnell (Delaware) and Sharon Angle (Nevada), and 2012 candidates Todd Akin (Missouri) and Richard Mourdock (Indiana), as examples. However, Pollak noted that many of the candidates that Senate leadership had backed had been poor choices, ranging from Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana — who “basically didn’t live there anymore” — to former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who later became a Democrat. “If Mitch McConnell had his way, Charlie Crist would have been the Republican nominee for Senate in Florida [in 2010] instead of Marco Rubio. I mean, you can find so many examples of the establishment picking losers.” Pollak also noted that the fundamental problem

Dem Rep Lewis: Gun Violence ‘Daily Epidemic’


In this week’s Democratic address, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) decried gun violence, calling it a “daily epidemic.” Transcript as follows: Hello. I’m Congressman John Lewis, and I represent the 5th District of Georgia. On Monday, our nation woke up to the news of the worst mass shooting in our history. At least 58 people were killed. Over 500 were injured. All because an evil, disturbed man was able to get his hands on a dozen deadly weapons and turn them on a crowd of innocents. When I think of Las Vegas – when I think of Newtown and Charleston, and Orlando and Aurora – my heart breaks. Gun violence is a daily epidemic – a daily drumbeat of tragedy in families and communities across America. Not always on the front pages, but always someone irreplaceable and beloved. 90 Americans are killed every day. Every year, we lose more than 30,000 men, women and children to gun violence. What will it take for the Republican Congress to wake up? They hold moments of silence and vigils; they offer thoughts and prayers. But they do nothing. And when the media moves on, they peddle the lie that we need more guns to

Trump Reflects on Las Vegas Shooting in Weekly Address


In his weekly radio address, President Donald Trump offered thoughts on those impacted by last weekend’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. Transcript as follows: My fellow Americans, On Wednesday, I traveled to Las Vegas to visit with the victims of the horrific shooting, speak with their families, and thank the brave citizens, first responders and medical personnel who saved so many lives. We struggle to grasp the evil that occurred on Sunday evening when a murderer shot into a crowd of more than 20,000 people. Men, women, and children were gathered to enjoy a concert. They never imagined it would become the worst day of their lives. But in the wake of such shock and horror, it was a matter of seconds before the goodness of the human spirit broke through. When the shooting began, a mother laid on top of her daughter to shield her from gunfire. A husband died to protect his beloved wife. Strangers rescued strangers, police officers and first responders rushed into danger. When the worst of humanity strikes, the best of humanity responds. The men and women who risked their lives to save their fellow citizens give proof to the words of this Scripture: “The

Illinois High School Under Fire for American Flag Displayed on the Ground


An American flag display set up by staff at an Illinois high school stirred up controversy on social media. The display at York Community High School in Elmhurst, IL was a re-creation of artist Dread Scott’s “What is the Proper Way to Display a U.S. Flag?” from 1989 and was intended “to explore the complexities of the constitutionally protected right of free speech by examining real cases,” Principal Erin DeLuga said in a message to parents on the school’s Facebook page. The attempt at a lesson on the First Amendment backfired. Parents and students complained the display was in poor taste, some calling it “disrespectful” and a “disgrace” on the school’s Facebook page. DeLuga also wrote, “Our staff and students will learn from this week’s lesson, and we will make changes to this forum in the future to ensure we do not disrespect our flag.”   Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo
