Trump turns on Fox News and says new attorney general will look at locking up Democrats in wild rally speech Lock down Brady; trade Harris? Barnwell's AFC offseason to-do lists

Trump turns on Fox News and says new attorney general will look at locking up Democrats in wild rally speechDonald Trump turned his fire on Fox News, threatened to have his attorney general investigate Democrats and FBI for treason and joked about serving five terms as president during a typically rambling rally speech in Pennsylvania.The president was in the northeastern state to campaign for Republican congressional candidate Fred Keller, ahead of a special election on Tuesday.“What’s going on with Fox, by the way?” Mr Trump asked the crowd.“They’re putting more Democrats on than Republicans. Something strange is going on at Fox, folks! Something very strange!”His remarks caused the crowd to loudly boo the right-wing television network, which has previously shown staunch support to the president.Mr Trump had earlier accused Fox News of “moving...to the losing (wrong) side” in a series of tweets posted on Sunday.The president appeared angered by the cable network’s decision to screen a televised town hall event featuring Pete Buttigieg.The mayor of South Bend, a city in Indiana, is an increasingly popular Democratic primary candidate.“Hard to believe that Fox News is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete,” the president wrote.“Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the [Democrats].“They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in.“They forgot the people...who got them there.”The president has expressed increasing frustration with Fox News over recent weeks, despite the network’s consistently pro-Trump stance.“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on Fox News,” he tweeted on 16 April, after the cable network hosted an event with Vermont senator Bernie Sanders.During Monday’s rally the president also criticised Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden.The former vice-president was born in Pennsylvania but later moved to Delaware as a child. He represented the latter state in the US senate for over 30 years.“I guess he was born here, but he left you folks,” Mr Trump claimed.“He left you for another state. Remember that please. I meant to say that.” The president also accused the FBI and Democrats of “treason”over the investigation of his 2016 election campaign for its links to Russia, as his supporters chanted "lock them up".“Well we have a great new attorney general, who is going to give it a very fair look,” he said.The 72-year-old also discussed serving four more years after 2020 and joked about remaining in office for up to five full terms.“We’ll go and we’ll do what we have to do. We’ll do a three and a four and a five [terms],” he said.Additional reporting by agencies

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
