It is a significant story. One that certainly has national security implications.
There's new fallout from intelligence leaks that occurred last summer - the unauthorized release of sensitive information from what is likely to be the highest level of our government.

And, the Justice Department needs to prosecute those responsible to fullest extent of the law. Without delay. There must be a "no tolerance" policy when it comes to leaking confidential information concerning our national security.

Many conservative Americans look at their country now and no longer recognize it. That is due, in particular, to the implementation over the past one hundred plus years of a Progressive Left agenda that has been steadily transforming this country into something other than what our Founding Fathers...
Over the years, Presidents have, at times, pushed the boundaries of their authority, often giving rise to litigation reaching the Supreme Court. For example, in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer , the Court held that President Truman exceeded his authority by ordering the seizure of...
