    The Daily Check ^ | May 29, 2017
    People think that Abe Lincoln was such a benevolent President. He was actually a bit of a tyrant. He attacked the Confederate States of America, who seceded from the Union due to tax and tariffs. (If you think it was over slavery, you need to find a real American history book written before 1960.) This picture is of 38 Santee Sioux Indian men that were ordered to be executed by Abraham Lincoln for treaty violations (IE: hunting off of their assigned reservation). So, on December 26, 1862, the “Great Emancipator” ordered the largest mass execution in American History, where the...

    Meeting Pope Francis can really mess with a guy. The day after then-House Speaker John Boehner met with the pope during his visit to the U.S. in 2015, the Republican politician tearfully resigned. The former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly spent the morning of his last day with the network in Rome, where he met Francis in the Vatican receiving line.

    It’s ironic to think with Republicans holding the presidency as well as control of the House and Senate the conservative movement would still be in need of a national leader. The election of Donald Trump effectively made him the head of the Republican Party. For conservatives who accept the reality of the Trump presidency but who reject him as a conservative leader, people like Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell haven’t exactly been inspiring. There is one person who balances the task of delivering to conservatives intellectual leadership, without making it all about himself and that is Nebraska...
  • Trump base shows signs of cracking

    President Trump's previously resilient base is showing signs of cracking. A new Reuters/IPSOS tracking poll, released Friday afternoon, showed the president with a job approval rating of 75 percent among Republicans. Political professionals generally view it as worrying for any commander-in-chief if his approval ratings with his own party dip below 85 percent - and downright alarming if they go below 80 percent. "Seventy-five [percent] is certainly a new number and I would want to see something that would either back that up or refute it," said GOP pollster David Winston, whose resumé includes work for former Speaker Newt Gingrich...

    Edward Snowden, a former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA), has been 10 years of prison for releasing various documents regarding government surveillance programs. After his shocking revelation of phone surveillance by U.S. intelligence agency, he took asylum in Russia. Snowden is up again with another astonishing revelation. According to the ‘World news daily report’ he apparently has documents that prove Osama Bin Laden is on the CIA’s payroll and currently living a luxury lifestyle in the Bahamas. The Moscow Tribune reports that Snowden claims that Osama Bin Laden the infamous former leader of Al Qaeda, is in fact...
  • Bob Schieffer Sees ‘Parallels’ to Kennedy Assassination in Comey Firing

    Schieffer bewildered his audience by suggesting, “There are many parallels to Watergate. But I have to tell you, I think all the way back to the Kennedy assassination, to draw parallels.” The veteran journalist stretched, “I was there, as you know. I have always felt that if Lee Harvey Oswald had been put on trial, a lot of these conspiracy theories that are still circulating today would have been put at rest then.” One can sort of see what Schieffer was aiming for, in relation to dispelling conspiracies about the Russian investigation, but it’s still a bizarre comparison to make.

    Barbra Streisand argued that sexism cost her Oscar nominations for “Yentl” and “The Prince of Tides” during a spirited public interview at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday. But it wasn’t just men who balked at the idea of a woman calling the shots on a major motion picture. “There were a lot of older people,” Streisand told her interlocutor Robert Rodriguez. “They don’t want to see a woman director.” “I don’t know how many women wanted to see a woman director,” she added.

    Like many after the 2016 election, Barbra Streisand was disappointed with the results. In fact, she was heartbroken. The Oscar winner opened up about Hillary Clinton’s loss during an interview with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate. In her opinion, it all came down to the fact that “women are still so underestimated” in society. “It’s incredible to watch even this last election with Hillary, the kind of strong woman, the powerful woman, the educated woman, the experienced woman, being thought of as the other, or too elite, or too educated,” she said. “It’s very, very odd to me, and it was heartbreaking...

    Sources say Bill Clinton is in rough shape. . Sources close to the Clinton family say that Slick Willy, 40th President of the United States and perpetual cheater, will be lucky to make it through the end of the week. The Clinton family, including extended relatives and members of the Rodham clan, have been filing into Little Rock all week where Bill is reportedly bedridden at the residence attached to his presidential library. The fact that they’re booking rooms and sticking around most likely means they’re expecting to have to stay for a funeral. The Clintons have said that they...

    Fresh off a defeat on U.S. healthcare legislation, the White House warned rebellious conservative lawmakers that they should get behind President Donald Trump's agenda or he may bypass them on future legislative fights, including tax reform. The threat by White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to build a broad coalition on tax reform that could include moderate Democrats came as the Republican head of the tax-writing committee in the House of Representatives said he hoped to move a tax bill through his panel this spring. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said his committee had been working...
  • Trump’s approval rating is in a free fall

    03/20/2017 8:15:18 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 105 replies
    President Trump’s approval rating has taken a nosedive, according to the latest Gallup poll. Only 37 percent of respondents approve the job the president is doing — the lowest level since he took office — while 58 percent disapprove, the poll found. Trump’s approval rating was 45 percent a week earlier. Other presidents have experienced even lower ratings, but Trump is the first commander-in-chief in at least 70 years to have dropped this low by March of his first term, according to Gallup. His plummeting numbers come as the GOP seeks to push through the proposal to repeal and replace...

    You can be a guy with a vagina that bleeds for a week every month. There’s nothing wrong with you. You are beautiful. We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their periods, and we heard from a lot of trans and nonbinary people who want you to know they menstruate too. 1. “But you’re a guy…guys don’t get periods?” Whenever my period comes, all my friends will hear about it. I always complain to my mother and sister, too, but that’s the extent of talking about it with family for me.

    Monday marks the end of US President Donald Trump's first month in office. US mainstream media spared no efforts in satirizing and criticizing him. The latest Gallup poll released Saturday local time shows that Trump only had a 40 percent approval rating, 21 percentage points below the average rating for presidents in their first month in office. Trump said that "any negative poll is fake news," but analysts believe he does care about the results. Trump's first month in the Oval Office can only be described as bumpy. He is now losing his offensive momentum and is entering the stalemate...

    It isn’t just that Donald Trump routinely thumbs his nose at the establishment, insults media figures he sees as unfair and bucks conventional wisdom. It is that President-elect Trump is defying the will of the deep state, military industrial complex base of ultimate power in the United States. That is why he is treading dangerous waters, and risks the fate of JFK. Trump publicly dissed the intelligence community assessments on Russian hacking; they retaliated with a made up dossier about the alleged Trump-Putin ‘golden shower’ episode.

    The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said Thursday that Russia and Iran are supporting the Taliban in part to undermine the U.S. and NATO mission to attain peace and stability in the nation. Army Gen. John Nicholson told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Iran is providing the Taliban in western Afghanistan with military and logistical support. Tehran also is recruiting Shiite fighters in Afghanistan to fight against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, raising concerns that these militants will return and destabilize the nation, Nicholson testified. Nicholson said Russia's involvement in Afghanistan has become "more difficult" over the...

    WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump was confused about the dollar: Was it a strong one that’s good for the economy? Or a weak one? So he made a call ― except not to any of the business leaders Trump brought into his administration or even to an old friend from his days in real estate. Instead, he called his national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, according to two sources familiar with Flynn’s accounts of the incident. Flynn has a long record in counterintelligence but not in macroeconomics. And he told Trump he didn’t know, that it wasn’t his...

No thanks to the pompom boys. http://fb.me/8ARjGokf6 Lightweight Ben Shapiro, "They’re fully within their rights to mock those Constitutional conservatives – like me! – who said that Trump would never appoint a conservative to the Court. But they are ignoring one rather crucial point: if had been up to them, they wouldn’t have pressed Trump for a damn thing. Trump appointed a conservative to the high court because he needed to please Constitutional conservatives. He didn’t do it because he is a deeply knowledgeable Constitutional scholar (he once said in...
