    President Donald Trump repeated an incorrect claim on Thursday that Hillary Clinton gave Russia 20 percent of the United States' uranium while serving as secretary of State. The fact-checking website PolitiFact has determined that statement, which Trump first made on the campaign trail, is mostly false.

    n Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour,” anchor Brian Williams argued President Trump’s criticisms of the media were “Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they — when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.” During a discussion on Trump’s press conference earlier in the day, USA Today Senior Politics Reporter Heidi Przybyla stated, “[T]he press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as a...

    In 1996, in Carthage, Texas, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede murdered 81-year-old Marjorie Nugent. Shot her in the back, stuffed her body in the big freezer in her garage, and went on about his life. When the police eventually found her and Bernie confessed to her murder, District Attorney Danny Buck ran into a problem—he couldn’t scare up a single juror in Panola County who was willing to put Bernie behind bars. Bernie was a sweet boy, the people of Carthage said, and that b***h had it coming.
  • CNN Chief: Antagonism Toward Trump ‘Boosting Morale’ of Network Employees

    CNN is viewing its antagonism toward President Donald J. Trump as a “badge of honor” — and according to CNN president Jeff Zucker the network’s daily aggression aimed at Trump is “boosting” employee morale. President Trump renewed his assault on the veracity of the “fake media” by jousting with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta at a Thursday press conference. During the back and forth, Trump joked that he was downgrading CNN from merely “fake news,” to “very fake news.” He also poked at the network over its ratings. Only five months ago, CNN’s ratings were so bad that it...

  • Scott Pruitt's Game-Changing Call for Debate on Climate Science

    pjmedia.com ^ | Tom Harris
    In light of charges by a former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientist that agency researchers are manipulating data to support climate alarmism, Scott Pruitt -- President Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Environmental Protection Agency -- is right to call for open debate on the science. At stake are trillions of dollars, countless jobs, and, if the climate scare is justified, the fate of the global environment. The public needs to have confidence that this is not just a politically convenient crusade devoid of solid scientific support. Last week, former NOAA scientist Dr. John Bates publicly announced his concerns...

    Boris Johnson has attacked Tony Blair for showing "contempt" to British voters after the former Prime Minister warned the UK is heading for "Brexit at any cost". In a keynote speech, Mr Blair urged Remain voters to "rise up" against the Government's drive for Brexit, which will cause "real damage" to Britain and the embitterment of future generations. Speaking at the headquarters of the Bloomberg financial news agency in London where David Cameron first set out his plan for an in/out vote on Britain's EU membership, he issued a rallying cry against the referendum vote which was "based on imperfect...

However, a senior administration official told NBC News the report was "false."

    Some background information is required before you watch the following report from French television.France is in the midst of a presidential election campaign. Under ordinary circumstances, the Socialists face off against the Republicans (formerly the UMP, the party of Nicolas Sarkozy), and the candidate for one or the other party wins and moves into the Élysée Palace, the residence of the French president.But France has a multiparty system, and as often as not no candidate gets a clear majority in the first round of voting. The two candidates with the largest pluralities then face each other in the run-off, and...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/17/17 | Eddie Scarry
    John Dickerson, anchor of CBS's "Face the Nation," disagrees with reporters who say President Trump is eroding the national media's credibility. In a radio interview Friday, conservative host Hugh Hewitt referred to the previous day's press conference at the White House, in which Trump laid into the news media and told reporters in the room that the public cannot trust them. "But that one comment, they don't trust you anymore, is a summation of where we are in America, because I really do think Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country," Hewitt said. "They've lost it." Dickerson agreed. "Yes, it's true,...

    Success is the best revenge. Just ask Ivanka Trump, whose perfumes rocketed to the top of the Amazon Bestsellers list after leftist anti-Trumpers launched a boycott of her products. While department stores like Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, Sears and Kmart have dropped Ivanka’s clothing line, shoes and accessories, Amazon is cashing in on the first daughter’s popular perfumes. An Ivanka Trump fragrance is No. 1 in Amazon’s women’s eau de parfum category. Ivanka’s products beat out fragrances from pop stars Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears, both of whom have had extremely successful perfume lines for years. Ivanka Trump’s merchandise is being...

    Buried deep beneath the Michael Flynn hysteria this week was Judicial Watch’s release of newly obtained State Department documents related to the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. One email confirms—again—that the Obama administration knew the day after the attack it was not a random act of violence stemming from an anti-Muslim video. That was the excuse shamefully propagated by top Obama administration officials (including the president himself) and swallowed whole by a media establishment desperate to help Obama win re-election six weeks later.According to the summary of a call on September 12, 2012 between State Department Under-Secretary Patrick...

    Did Noah Really Live to Be 950? Msgr. Charles Pope • February 16, 2017 • I occasionally get questions about the remarkably long lives of the patriarchs who lived before the great flood. Consider the ages at which these figures purportedly died: Adam – 930Seth – 912Enosh – 905Jared – 962Methuselah – 969Noah – 950Shem – 600Eber – 464Abraham – 175Moses – 120David – 70 How should we understand these references? Many theories have been proposed to explain the claimed longevity. Some use a mathematical corrective, but this leads to other pitfalls such as certain patriarchs apparently begetting children...

    Not since Sister Act has a film fronted by black women had quite the commercial impact of Hidden Figures, which has crashed through the $100 million barrier at the US box office and even scored a place on the Best Picture line-up. Underrate the star power of Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe at your peril; by the end of their film, you’ll certainly be doffing your hat to the women they’re playing, too. Hidden in the sense of historically obscured – their contributions to the space race neglected and marginalised – this trio of Nasa employees had...

    From the statements they made at the joint press conference, it is clear that Trump and Netanyahu have decided to build an alliance. Its purpose is twofold. First, by working together, they can defeat the common foes of their countries. And second, the success of their joint efforts will bring about the defeat of their bureaucratic enemies. The most significant development to come out of the Trump-Netanyahu press conference was their refusal to endorse the two-state policy doctrine. This was a necessary move. ...................... The insanity at the heart of the two-state formula, and the US and Israeli public’s desire...

    And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses. Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of...

    Building a border wall “undermines who we are as a country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told a news conference on Thursday. She said she is “opposed to the wall”—“politically, substantively, officially, spiritually, religiously, personally.” She also described recent ICE raids across the country as “another assault on our values.” “In the past week, we have witnessed ICE raids across our nation targeting parents, students and a DACA-protected dreamer...We have seen press reports that federal immigration agents went to the El Paso County courthouse and arrested an undocumented woman who had just received a protective order after suffering domestic violence....

Behold the fully-hatched Great Russian Conspiracy: The so-called scandal involving former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn is 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Iran-Contra, Watergate, proof of presidential fascism, a cynical money-making scheme, and a pro-Russian spy thriller all rolled into one, according to the increasingly deranged rants of howling left-wingers and their truth-adverse confederates in the mainstream media. – Frontpage As you may have expected Trump, being Trump, pushed...
