    Gov. Matt Bevin continued his crusade to focus the 2019 gubernatorial election on the issue of abortion rights Wednesday, releasing a video that accused Attorney General Andy Beshear, the Democratic nominee for governor, of insulting people of Baptist faith. The video was in response to Beshear’s first television ad of the general election, which featured Beshear talking about how his grandfather and great-grandfather were Baptist preachers and how their faith guided his principles. “I think it’s insulting to the Baptist tradition, I think it’s insulting to the people of Baptist faith to try and couch what his grandfather and great...

    CNN is having a tough week. There’s apparently no video of the alleged incident involving Don Lemon so it’s he said, he said. According to bartender Dustin Hice, he recognized Lemon at a Sag Harbor bar called Murf’s (Dustin worked at another nearby bar) and offered to buy him a drink. Lemon was with some other people and politely declined the offer saying he was just there to “have a good time, man.” Hice moved on but claims that minutes later Lemon approached him and that’s when things got very weird. From the complaint (via Mediaite): Sometime later that...

    CNN came to the defense of anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night after he erupted at a stranger who called him "Fredo," declaring it to be an ethnic slur on par with the "N-word" against Italian-Americans. Fredo is a fictional character from The Godfather series who is portrayed as the weakest and least intelligent of the Corleone crime family's brothers. The controversy began when a man approached Cuomo in public and called him "Fredo." Cuomo reacted by cursing at the man and stated that calling an Italian "Fredo" is tantamount to calling a black person a "n—er." "No, punk-ass b—es...

    On the morning of Jeffrey Epstein's death there was shouting and shrieking from his jail cell, a source familiar with the situation told CBS News. Corrections officers attempted to revive him while saying "breathe, Epstein, breathe." Congress is the latest to start investigating Epstein's apparent suicide over the weekend, with new reports raising questions about the federal jail where he was being held.
  • Trump: Shell’s new Pennsylvania plant will restore ‘glory’ of US manufacturing

    President Trump on Tuesday visited a massive new plant in western Pennsylvania that converts the region’s huge natural-gas deposits into plastics — saying; “This would have never happened without me.” Trump spoke at Shell’s nearly completed Petrochemicals Complex in Monaca, which will provide hundreds of jobs to the struggling region near the Ohio border. But critics claim it also will become the largest air polluter in that part of the Keystone State, an area hit hard by manufacturing job losses and hungry for investment. Trump said his administration was “restoring the glory of American manufacturing” and making the nation energy...
  • What Will Epstein Prosecutors Do With Photo Evidence of Illegal "Client" Activity...?

    On July 25, 2019, the New York Post reported that Manhattan federal prosecutors were conducting an “ongoing investigation' of "uncharged individuals” connected to Jeffrey Epstein, according to court papers filed that day. Relevant to that investigation were "images of nude or partially-nude individuals” which had been seized from Epstein's residences, which, if released to the public, “would impede...the Government’s ongoing investigation of uncharged individuals...” The implication was strong that "uncharged individuals" were in the photographs. Why would the leaking of photographs "impede" the investigation of "uncharged individuals," unless the individuals were themselves in the photographs? This might certainly cause some...

    FULL TITLE: Google’s decision to develop ‘military AI’ in China is one giant middle finger to the United States: Peter Thiel (NationalSentinel) A decision by Google to end a contract with the Pentagon to develop artificial intelligence while deciding instead to build an AI campus in China is a massive slap in the face to the U.S., where the corporation is based, and a potential national security threat to America, according to one of Silicon Valley’s few conservatives. In a recent op-ed, Paypal co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Peter Thiel made it clear that AI is being developed for military purposes...

    President Trump on Tuesday said Congress should not consider any "final agreement" on election security that does not include provisions mandating voters present identification while casting ballots. “No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID (Identification) must play a very strong part in any final agreement. Without Voter ID, it is all so meaningless!” Trump tweeted Tuesday. Trump has long touted unfounded claims that he only lost the 2016 popular vote by 3 million ballots because of “millions of people who voted illegally.” The president went on to retweet a post claiming without evidence...

Then the host of the morning show New Day, Cuomo criticized the conduct of then-Rep.

    Business Insider ^ | August 5, 2019 | Emma Court and Clarrie Feinstein
    Healthcare has becomes a prominent part of the 2020 presidential campaign, and the healthcare industry's donations to candidates have come under scrutiny. Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has said he won't take funds from drugmakers and health insurers and called on other candidates to follow. The healthcare sector, which includes drugmakers, health insurers, doctors, and hospitals, has contributed more than $5 million so far towards the many presidential candidates, according to data from OpenSecrets through the end of June. President Donald Trump's re-election campaign was a top recipient of healthcare dollars, and Sanders' campaign ranked in the top five. Read on...

    “Jets from NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission scrambled to identify the aircraft, which flew close to Allied airspace,” the official said. “Once identification of the aircraft had taken place, the NATO jets returned to base.” This is not the first time Moscow and NATO have been involved in such an incident over the same body of water. Shoigu in 2017 was flying over the Baltic when a NATO F-16 fighter jet approached his aircraft and was also chased away by escort planes, TASS reported at the time.

    August 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Over the past several years of writing on the subject of the transgender phenomenon, I’ve received many phone calls and emails from despairing parents. The details are always different, but the stories are always very much the same: Their child, often struggling with body image issues, autism, or mental illness, was persuaded by peers and the public school establishment that he or she—usually she—was transgender. Other possibilities are almost always rejected, and often the parents face threats from the school authorities or social services for not being “affirming” enough of their child’s desire to switch...

    Port Hueneme Lifeguards tried to intervene but McTaggart started “throwing punches” at them, according to officials. Police officers arrived at the scene shortly before 2 p.m. and found McTaggart involved in an altercation with the lifeguards in a parking lot on the east end of the waterfront, according to the department. When McTaggart saw the officers, he tried running away, but was ultimately taken into custody after a short chase, police said. The suspect was described by police as a registered sex offender and a transient from Oxnard, who lives in the homeless encampment on Ormond Beach. McTaggart had been...

    While most Americans are spending time this summer enjoying the sun in the comfort of their houses’ yards, the New York Times is out with a new exposé on how lawn care is problematic, once viewed through the lens of social justice. Lawns are contributing to pollution and climate change, asserts narrator David Botti, and their origins are far from woke, in a seven-minute video on the history of American lawns. Botti says lawns are part of the “colonizing of America,” which transformed the landscape from “pristine wilderness” to “identical rows of manicured nature.” “These lawns come on the backs...

    In case you haven’t fully gotten the message, African-American Democrats are really angry with any African-American Republican that embraces President Trump. Then, if an African-American Republican runs for an elected office, well, the racial slurs fly… from the Democrats. The race for Kentucky’s Attorney General is no different – just ask Daniel Cameron. Daniel Cameron is an African-American Republican candidate for attorney general in Kentucky. He came under attack by Dawn Elliott, a liberal female African-American lawyer and co-host of a political talk radio show, this week. Cameron is running against Democrat Greg Stumbo, a 67-year-old white Democrat who is...

    CNN primetime host Don Lemon was accused of a bizarre, sexually charged assault of a bartender in New York's tony Hamptons last year in a civil suit filed earlier this week. Dustin Hice, of Florida, stated in the lawsuit that he was living in the Hamptons and working at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack during the summer of 2018. On July 15, after closing, Hice claimed he left with the owner and co-workers to party at another bar, Murf's Backstreet Tavern, in Sag Harbor, where they saw Lemon.

    Pope Francis’ biographer: Pope Benedict’s circle opposes Francis, must be controlled August 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Austen Ivereigh, the British journalist and biographer of Pope Francis, has stated that the circle surrounding Pope emeritus Benedict — which he said includes the Vatican's former doctrine head Cardinal Müller — must be brought under "control" since it is a source of "scandal and of division." Ivereigh made these comments in an August 10 interview to the Chilean newspaper La Tercera, in which he speaks about his upcoming book on Pope Francis, titled The Wounded Shepherd. Speaking about those who he holds as resisting Pope Francis,...

    If there was ever any doubt about the depth and extent of the deep state coup against both candidate and President Donald J. Trump and the number of deep state actors to thwart the will of the American people, it vanished with the release of partially redacted copies of former Deputy Atty. Gen. Bruce Ohr’s FBI 302 reports (interview summaries) on Thursday evening obtained by Judicial Watch. They confirm that Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie were not merely passive conduits for the fraudulent Steele Dossier but were active participants in the plot to deny Trump the presidency. They confirm...
