  • Washington Post Reports On 'Regretful' Trump Voters To Fit Their Narrative

    The Post identifies the participants as “Trump voters,” which is ostensibly true. But they are an unrepresentative sample. What better way to find Trump voters who regret their vote than to talk to non-Republicans. The majority of Trump voters are Republicans, but only a third of the Trump voter focus group participants are Republicans, which may explain why only one participant said she was still fully supportive of the president. The headline says, “Trump voters” but the piece focuses only on women, with the opinions of one man tacked on at the end. The Post doesn’t explain the gender breakdown...
  • The Ugly Truth About Sex Reassignment the Transgender Lobby Doesn’t Want You to Know

    Sex reassignment is as natural as being born, some in the media tell us. And many Americans are buying it. But a growing chorus of dissenters made up of physicians, researchers, and even transgender individuals is beginning to paint a far different picture of the truth. These dissenters are now coming forward to expose just how harmful gender transition and reassignment are—both medically and sociologically speaking. First, consider recent revelations about how problematic sex reassignment surgery is as a therapy for gender dysphoria. In an interview with The Telegraph, world-renowned genital reconstructive surgeon Miroslav Djordjevic said his clinics are experiencing...

    The number of patients who regret their sex change surgeries, especially among biological males who underwent operations to look like females, is on the rise, according to a leading genital reconstructive surgeon.Professor Miroslav Djordjevic, who runs a clinic in Belgrade, Serbia, said that the number of people who have come to him with regrets over their gender reassignment surgeries has been increasing over the past five years, according to The Telegraph.Djordjevic spoke about the "crippling levels of depression," including suicidal thoughts, that those wishing for a reversal have shared with him."It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,"...

    According to a new national Politico/Morning Consult survey, 2016 election buyers' remorse is more prevalent among Hillary Clinton's voters than those who cast ballots for President Trump.  "Among Clinton voters, 13 percent say they would either vote for a different candidate or not vote at all," the survey finds, while that number among Trump backers is four points lower.  In other words...

    Linda Wenzel, 16, who disappeared from Pulsnitz near Dresden in Germany on July 1 last year, was detained in Iraq, along with other female supporters of the group, after the Battle of Mosul, which saw ISIS fighters forced out of the ancient city. The new video shows a distraught Wenzel with her arms secured by armed men being escorted through the streets amid a crowd of cheering Iraqis. Lorenz Haase, senior public prosecutor in Dresden, confirmed the teenager had been “located and identified in Iraq”. Wenzel, who is thought to have converted to Islam after being groomed on social media,...

    President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.” In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I...

    Despite an onslaught of ridicule from the national media, chiding from their neighbors and repeated public relations flare-ups from the White House, President Trump’s voters remain remarkably loyal to him, pollsters and analysts say. These voters reject notions that they should regret their vote, saying that their frustration is not with Mr. Trump but with the resistance mounted by Democrats determined to stymie Mr. Trump at every turn....

    After spending months trying to get Trump voters to express regret for their support of the President, on Thursday, NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace took to the Today show to eagerly announce that she finally found a regretful supporter. He turned out to a liberal millennial who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary before voting for Donald Trump in the general election.          Wallace led off the segment by reminding viewers of her crusade to understand Trump voters: “So we began this journey five months ago with the goal of meeting and listening to the people...

    Just as the news media missed the boat in predicting the outcome of the 2016 election, their behavior in 2017 have shown they’ve learned absolutely nothing. On Monday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC panel was flabbergasted that the new ABC News/Washington Post poll found only two percent of President Trump’s voters regret voting for him. Floored by the “remarkable number,” the liberals and pseudo-Republicans attempted to explain away the number and infer that it was much higher because Trump voters wouldn’t be forthcoming with pollsters. Co-host Joe Scarborough kicked things off, telling panelist Mark Halperin: But when I saw in the...

    I argued last week that anecdotal stories about disillusioned Trump supporters were overdone. The fact is that, on a broad scale, Trump supporters say they aren't disappointed. In fact, a poll showed they were more pleased than disappointed, by about 5 to 1: ...The Pew Research Center released a poll showing very little buyer's remorse among Trump voters. The poll showed just 7 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Trump has performed worse than they expected him to. Fully 38 percent — five times as many — say he has performed better. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll confirms...

    Donald Trump continued his push to secure support from the other side of the aisle Tuesday -- telling early voters that they can change their minds if they have "buyer's remorse." "This is a message for any Democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse," he told rallygoers in Eau Claire, Wisc. "In other words you want to change your vote."

    As a direct result of Europe's refugee crisis, new and very unpleasant social fractures have started to emerge. One particularly troubling issue is the extent to which officials have tended to “blame the victim" in the ever more frequent sex attacks resulting from Europe's refugee surge, something we first touched upon earlier this week. For instance, Cologne mayor Henriette Reker drew sharp criticism for suggesting that it was German womens' duty to prevent assaults by keeping would-be assailants “at arm’s length.” Then there was the now infamous case of the 17-year-old Danish girl who faced a fine from police...
  • Upset Republican donors: Have we wasted our money?

    Major GOP donors and fundraisers are wondering whether they’re wasting their money on super-PACs. They say they’re not ready to abandon the super-PACs, but they’re starting to look for ways to make them more effective during a presidential cycle that has challenged conventions about how to spend political donations. GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s relatively cheap campaign — contrasted with the millions of dollars spent on behalf of Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Scott Walker and Rick Perry — has left donors, fundraisers and conservative leaders questioning the value of super-PACs, which got a boost from the 2010 Supreme Court decision that...

    The CEO of UnitedHealthCare on Tuesday said he regretted the decision to enter the ObamaCare marketplace last year, which the company says has resulted in millions of dollars in losses. "It was for us a bad decision," UnitedHealth CEO Stephen Hemsley said at an investors meeting in New York, according to Bloomberg Business. UnitedHealth, the countrys largest insurer, announced last month that it would no longer advertise its ObamaCare plans over the next year and may pull out completely in 2016, a move that sent shockwaves across the healthcare sector. Hemsleys remarks double down on his earlier warning that...

    If same-sex marriage is used to pummel religious Americans into submission, it will be a disaster. I’ve supported same-sex marriage ever since I first heard the idea. And when I became a political columnist in the early 2000s—despite being the “conservative” at a good-sized newspaper—I was the only one at the paper (as far as I can recall) who unequivocally backed gay marriage publicly. Though I wasn’t gullible enough to believe I’d be persuading many readers, I was gullible enough to believe that my allies in the cause were merely concerned with “equality.” As we dig out from the avalanche...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio’s political vision—and his political travels—have increasingly reached far beyond the borders of New York City. […] It is commonplace for New York City mayors to become national figures, but some experts believe that de Blasio—not even 18 months into his first term—is risking being perceived as someone who has forgotten about his home. A poll last week showed that fewer than half of New Yorkers believe the city is moving in the right direction. “He’s entering a path that can be dangerous for big-city mayors,” said Kenneth Sherrill, a retired political science professor at Hunter College....

    When the confetti cleared on Election Night in 2012, Barack Obama’s victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney looked ugly; there’s nothing reassuring about a 332–206 electoral vote smack down.Although the electoral vote totals made it appear as though it was a runaway Obama victory, the popular vote totals were actually much closer than the final electoral college tally. Romney lost by about 3.5 million votes, which is especially tough in a nation of over 300 million people.Now that numerous candidates have declared for the 2016 race, pollsters have been busy trying to get an early read on where the nation...

    Colorado’s decision to legalize marijuana was a bad idea, the state’s governor said Friday. Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who opposed the 2012 decision by voters to make pot legal, said the state still doesn’t fully know what the unintended consequences of the move will be. If I could've waved a wand the day after the election, I would've reversed the election and said, 'This was a bad idea,’” Hickenlooper said Friday on CNBC's “Squawk Box.” “You don't want to be the first person to do something like this,” he said. He said that he tells other governors to “wait...

    Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I’d ever dreamed. Obamacare brought us new health insurance options, but cost us our more affordable plans. “You will keep your health insurance,” President Obama promised in 2012. The fact that this wasn’t true would be our biggest disappointment. In November 2013, Jim learned his small-business policy would be canceled because it didn’t comply with the new mandate to cover pediatric dentistry and maternity care. So Jim went to Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, to look for coverage for his employee and himself. The individual plan I had with Blue Cross...
