    When the Left's absurd caricature of President Donald Trump keeps getting proven a lie, people start to change their minds. There are some signs that as Labor Day signals a new season, buckling down for autumn and winter to come, a re-appraisal may be underway for a segment of public opinion on President Trump. First of all, even MSNBC is noticing how good he looks handling Hurricane Harvey. Covering his visit live, she gushed, “We’re seeing a remarkably different president.” While cynics translate this as, “We can’t maintain the narrative of a bumbling idiot anymore,” I think there is genuine...

    American Spectator ^ | 6/14/17 | Melissa McKenzie
    Go look through leftist’s bios on Twitter. It will be the rare exception where the following hashtags are not included: #Resist, #Resistance, #ResistTrump. The media loves The Resistance. Loves. What is the next step to an active resistance? It’s really not complicated: Armed resistance. The media-Left plasters Coexist bumper stickers on their cars, but as anyone who’s followed a Prius for some distance will tell you, their behavior is anything but tolerant. Last week, a known leftist terrorist was made the star of a parade. The week before, a comedienne pretended to cut off the head of the President. This...
  • Trump 'very happy' with bill outlawing future border wall

    While it's commonly known by now that the new spending bill that Congress and the Trump administration agreed to funds mostly Democratic priorities, and doesn't fund President Trump's border wall, what's not widely known is that the new legislation goes even farther than this. Not only does it not fund the border wall, but it prevents the government from constructing a border wall with any funds.

    The CNN crawl read:TILLERSON FORCED TO SLEEP IN SANITARIUM at G20 SUMMITTraveling today, just checked in and popped on TV to CNN with the above crawl. What have I missed while in transit ? ...this will be a good one, but I heard no more and can find nothing. Did anyone else see this be chance ? I'm not imagining anything. Fake News ? A prank headline that made it to air ?
  • DANGER: OBAMA COULD PUT MERRICK GARLAND ON SUPREME COURT

    AMERICAN THINKER ^ | 11/22/16 | ED STRAKER
    .... if Congress adjourned for the year too soon, it could open a window to give President Obama a Supreme Court pick. That's because of a provision of the Constitution that allows the president to make recess appointments that can last two or more years. Now we get word that Congress is planning to adjourn early, which will give Obama an opportunity to appoint Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. This discussion is fairly complex, involving both constitutional and statutory law, so bear with me. 1) Why does Congress want to adjourn early? Members of Congress want to adjourn early...

    President Obama may have a unique opportunity when the Senate goes into recess. Under the law, when the Congress is in recess for at least ten days, the President can make what's called recess appointments.

    First of all, she’s probably not going to win the actual number of votes cast. She may win the number of votes counted, but not the votes cast.States don’t count their absentee ballots unless the number of outstanding absentee ballots is larger than the state margin of difference.

    I inadvertently popped into ABC News with David Muir tonight, summarizing the Trump win. Within the first 40 seconds, ABC was able to sneak in 3 slams. So much for magnanimity, or any sort of honeymoon. It sickens me, but how I enjoy watching their vitriol. We were reminded Donald may go to trial re: Trump U, "Trump paid no taxes for decades" (a lie), and a demonstration how Melania meets Moochelle tomorrow, from whom she 'stole' Melania's convention speech. ) a distortion) Screw you ABC. I'll next catch 10 minutes of CBS's treatment and see how low they can...

    Did John Dickerson just say what I think he said; "Trump probably can't get out of the rest of the debates."Help needed as I caught only the end of his piece, but we can easily imagine what preceded. Time ! , Slate ! show massive Trump victories. Even NBC concedes Trump did well. OMG.And Dickerson/CBS suggest he lost so badly he'd like to avoid further debates !

    Sharp Football Analysis ^ | 1/28/2015 | Warren Sharp
    The 2014 Patriots were just the 3rd team in the last 25 years to never have lost a fumble at home! The biggest difference between the Patriots and the other 2 teams who did it was that New England ran between 150 and 200 MORE plays this year than those teams did in the years they had zero home fumbles, making the Patriots stand alone in this unique statistic. Based on the desire to incorporate full season data (not just home games, as a team theoretically bring “doctored footballs” with them on the road) I performed the following analysis: I...
  • The Hottest Electric Vehicles Leave Winter Drivers Out in the Cold

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12/14/13 | Giuseppe Macri
    Engineering breakthroughs like the Tesla Model S may be burning up the electric car market (figuratively and literally), but they’re leaving drivers cold and under-powered in the face of Old Man Winter. Cold temperatures have adverse effects on batteries, slowing down the incoming and outgoing flow of energy and inevitably losing some in the process. The 250-mile average range of an electric car in normal climate conditions can see its performance reduced by 70-miles on a single charge in average winter conditions. The colder it gets, the shorter than range. Not only that, the average winter driver tends to turn...

    It's very uncomfortable, isn't it, when you realize government is in on the fraud ? Sickening even. We've become all too accustomed to politicians and their half-truths, but a dishonest government takes it another disgusting step.IRS targeting was the first big shot at the citizenry, particularly conservatives. Fudging unemployment statistics for the crucial report the week before the election is the most recent incident, but no less contemptible. In between, temper any number of suspect behaviors from this administration: Fast and Furious, Benhgazi, Solyndra, Arab Spring, Syria for starters, and Obamacare's ongoing fraud as the closing act.We've had scents of...

    Hardly a commercial break went by in October when Virginia voters weren’t reminded of Ken Cuccinelli’s far-right views on abortion and other social issues. How much of a difference the deluge ultimately made after Cuccinelli’s surprisingly narrow loss against Democrat Terry McAuliffe is open for debate. What isn’t in dispute is that Democrats and women’s groups believe their “war on women” playbook worked. And they have every intention of using it again in 2014,

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 12/24/12 | Paul Bedard/Secrets
    In a bid to get voters focused on the critical post-presidential debate period of national campaigns, a leading political advisor is pushing to scale back early voting to just the last four days of the election. "People really shouldn't be voting until the debates are finished. We should concentrate on the campaign and the choice until then," said Larry Sabato, who heads the University of Virginia's Center for Politics. (snip) Other suggestions from Sabato: Email voting for soldiers overseas; federal election standards and deadlines; no fault absentee voting where people don't have to provide an excuse; and printouts from electronic...

    We've only heard talk and do not know if this is true but it certainly must be, given Obama's shabby and insulting treatment of the Speaker in fiscal cliff negotiations. The latest reports from the Wall Street Journal and other sources indicate Obama has threatened Boehner and republicans with a throw-down public humiliation during Inaugural and SOTU addresses, unless Obama gets his way. Why would the Speaker invite the President (which is only done by recent tradition since the age of TV, iirc) into his house to allow him to soil his hosts ? To do so is tantamount to...

    WSJ via The Washington Examiner ^ | 12/22/12 | Philip Klein
    President Obama has threatened House Speaker John Boehner that if no deal is struck on the “fiscal cliff,” he will use his Inaugural address and State of the Union speech next month to blame Republicans, according to the Wall Street Journal. In the Journal’s behind the scenes account of how fiscal cliff talks between Obama and Boehner hit a wall, what comes across is that the president is emboldened by his reelection and eager to extract more concessions from Boehner than he was willing to accept during last summer’s debt limit talks. This excerpt from the piece is revealing: Mr....

    Most all of us agree Main Stream Media (MSM, Old Media, the Alphabets....) was a factor in this cycle. It began with WH shill George Stephanopolous' planted debate question to Romney about contraception, and continued through the ignored tragedies in the wake of Sandy on Staten and Long Islands that Obama had supposedly healed with his 2 hour visit. Our goal is to hasten MSM demise by concentrating our efforts. Please join us. It's difficult to turn off ALL media all the time, so let's agree to one at a time. NBC News programs are my suggestion and consensus choice...
