  • Gennifer Flowers ‘agrees’ to sit front row at first debate

    New York Post ^ | September 24, 2016 | Aaron Short
    When Hillary Clinton takes the podium at Monday night’s first presidential debate, she could be staring down an old romantic rival sitting in the front row. Gennifer Flowers, who carried on a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton when he was governor of Arkansas, said she’ll attend the debate at Hofstra University as Donald Trump’s guest, according to Buzzfeed. “Ms. Flowers has agreed to join Donald at the debate,” her personal assistant Judy Stell wrote in an email to Buzzfeed, the website reported Saturday. The development grew from a Twitter broadside Trump launched earlier that day. “If dopey Mark Cuban of...

    Jerika Bolen, a 14-year-old girl with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2, has been allowed to end her life— her own decision—by having her ventilator disconnected. She died Thursday. Jerika had told her mother that her chronic pain, along with her very significant physical limitations (including relying on a power wheelchair), made her welcome the idea of death. Jerika clearly was no coward. She had endured more than 30 surgeries for her condition since being diagnosed at eight months of age. Her family made it possible for her to enjoy movies, fireworks, sleepovers and a community-wide “last dance” prom this summer,...
  • Judge to NY Times: No Trump divorce records for you

    The New York Times and Gannett news have been trying to gain access to Donald Trump’s sealed divorce records on the grounds that they are of public interest now that he is running for President. Politico reports that New York judge Frank Nervo has rejected that argument: “Were the court to make the confidential records available for journalistic, and thus public, scrutiny, it would impermissibly inject itself into the political process by making the value judgment of what information is useful in determining the present candidate’s, or any other candidate’s, fitness for office,” Nervo wrote. “The court’s role in the...

    Alternate headline: “Ditka wraps up 2020 Republican nomination.” “I think it’s a problem,” Ditka said. “Anybody who disrespects this country and the flag. If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the hell out.”…“I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick,” Ditka added. “He probably has no respect for me, that’s his choice. My choice is that I like this country, I respect our flag, and I don’t see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on.” That’s as pure as nationalism gets. What does he think of Richard Sherman’s press...

    American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2016 | Scott S. Powell
    When thinking about critical issues defining this November’s presidential election, most Americans identify foreign policy concerns, growing Islamist terror threats, and Supreme Court appointments as being the high stakes issues. And while most consider jobs and the economy equally important, very few realize just how precarious the U.S. financial condition really is. In a recent campaign speech, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that Fed chief Janet Yellen should be “ashamed of herself for what she was doing to Americans” and for creating a “false stock market.” As has so often been the case, Trump’s direct manner of speaking brought...

    American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2016 | Brian C. Joondeph
    Some of Hillary Clinton's health and medical issues are well known: a previous fall and concussion, blood clot, chronic anticoagulation, and underactive thyroid. Then there is speculation about other problems – neurologic disease including Parkinson's, post-traumatic brain injury, and seizures. And not idle speculation, either. There are numerous video clips of Mrs. Clinton's bizarre head movements and facial expressions, lengthy coughing fits, and unusual eye movements, plus her famous 9/11 collapse. To the casual observer, whether a trained physician or someone without a medical background but with common sense, something is clearly wrong with her. A diligent press would be...

    “Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we first practice to deceive.” Sir Walter Scott When Dr. Lisa Bardack[*] was asked to become Hillary Clinton’s personal physician in 2001, it had to have been a crowning moment in the career of the Mt. Kisco internist. Dr. Bardack could have anticipated little downside. She already had the responsibility -- and legal obligation under HIPAA -- to protect the privacy of her patient. She and her staff would have to be especially scrupulous in the case of a senator with presidential ambitions, but this should not have posed a serious problem. Unfortunately,...
  • Evolving Terror Threats Require Constant Security Policy Shifts

    09/24/2016 9:22:53 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | September 23, 2016 | Rep. Daniel Donovan
    As technology changes and the foreign landscape shifts, the terror threat to the United States continuously evolves. To keep up, Congress must constantly reevaluate federal homeland security policies. Terrorists now use encrypted applications to communicate with one another. They take advantage of social media networks to infiltrate homes and radicalize those susceptible to their hateful, violent ideology. They disseminate instructions to build crude bombs and attack soft targets. Thankfully, technological advancements also improve the ability of security agencies to prevent and respond to attacks. Cutting edge capabilities are meaningless, though, if the federal bureaucracy can’t move quickly enough to adapt...

    Hillary Clinton as secretary of state approved of selling  $316 billion of our most powerful American weapons and war planes to foreign countries, many of which throw homosexuals off buildings, murder their political enemies, force women to live in black cocoons, don’t let them drive or attend school, and fund terrorism against us and Israel.  In turn, these dozens of foreign nations and the American weapons manufacturers forked over tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton-controlled slush fund called the Clinton Foundation.  The most stunning example uncovered in a 2015 International Business Times (IBT) investigative article : a sweet...

    Billionaire George Soros generally does not hide the fact that he uses the considerable funds at his disposal to support his extremist, leftist ideals. So when he does hide something, it should raise some serious questions. A series of leaked documents recently revealed that Soros’ philanthropy network, the Open Society Foundations, has been giving money to a number of anti-Israel organizations with the goal of smearing the Israeli government and undercutting its relationship with the United States. Even worse, these documents showed that while the Soros network was systematically and methodically doling out its funds to these controversial groups, it...

    “You’re getting your inheritance early.” Those were my father’s words to me as he explained that he was taking money that he might have left me in his will and spending it on my private school tuition. My father’s reasoning was that I would be able to create more wealth for his grandchildren if he invested in my education. Thanks to his wisdom, I would go on to graduate from Williams, one of the most prestigious liberal arts colleges in the nation and to obtain my MBA from Harvard. Besides my parents’ willingness to sacrifice for my education—a decision my...

    After spending a week at work, hearing about the liberalism being forced on their kids at school, having liberalism shoved in their face by their local newspaper and being harangued by TV shows portraying people like them as creeps, a lot of conservative men like to relax by watching sports. Sports is a place where politics shouldn’t even be on the agenda….but IT IS. Now, watching a football game requires you to put up with spoiled, pampered, privileged, obscenely wealthy man-children disrespecting America during the national anthem.

    In a bizarre video message this week to the Laborers International Union of North America, Hillary Clinton asked, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?” She seemed concerned that her opponent, Donald Trump, had closed the gap in the polls. Clinton claimed that Trump was staunchly opposed to labor unions, but she had a long history of support. She also noted her strong opposition to Right to Work laws. According to Clinton, “Right to Work is wrong for workers and wrong for America.” In fact, Right to Work is only wrong for labor bosses and liberal Democrats like Hillary Clinton who...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who during the Republican presidential primary called Donald Trump a "pathological liar," endorsed his former rival on Friday in a lengthy statement explaining why he is now "honoring" his pledge to support the GOP nominee. "After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz wrote in a Facebook post.

    Hi Folks. These are a few thoughts from the road. Mary and I are driving from our home in Florida up to visit her family in West Virginia and my family in Maryland. On Saturday, Pumphrey, the community I grew up in, is having an event honoring my 88-year-old preacher dad. Dad was a pillar of our black community.

    The Black Lives Matter movement began as a hashtag in July 2013 immediately after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Although the movement would be reinforced along the way by any number of lies -- “Hands up don’t shoot” comes quickly to mind -- not enough attention has been paid to the original lie, one that may eventually launch a thousand riots before it burns itself out, namely that Trayvon Martin was an innocent little boy. On the night of February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed the seventeen-year-old Martin. For a week...

    Only four days after I wrote "The Decrepit Candidate" here at American Thinker, Hillary Clinton took ill at the 9/11 fifteenth anniversary memorial ceremonies in New York City, ditched her press pool, left prematurely, and was unceremoniously stuffed, stiff as a board, into her van to escape to daughter Chelsea's apartment. Thanks to a citizen video, taken by Zdenek Gazda and now viewed by millions of people worldwide, we know that the Clinton campaign's original statement that Hillary became "overheated" is a lie. OK, let's be more charitable here – if Hillary did indeed overheat and become dehydrated, then it...

    Last week, Trump held a press conference that Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post called “the greatest trick he ever pulled.” It was quite a show, alright. Promised a “major announcement,” the press showed up with cameras on, only to get the briefest of statements by Trump that (accurately, as it turns out) laid the “birther” story at the feet of the 2008 Clinton campaign – and then be regaled by a passel of high-ranking military endorsing Trump for president. Result? 90 minutes of more “free” coverage for Donald Trump. Boy, was the press pissed. The outraged tweets that followed...

    Early this month, Mother Theresa was canonized as Saint Theresa by Pope Francis in a celebrated canonization ceremony in Vatican City. At this juncture, the same poor people in Calcutta (now Kolkata), whom she served with her life, face a different kind of threat to their lives—energy poverty caused by radical environmental policies. Sadly, these policies are supported by Pope Francis himself. People from all walks of life, including those from various faiths, have celebrated the life of Mother Theresa over the past decades. For them, her work of charity and her heart for the poor far outweighed her religious...

    Yesterday news broke Department of Homeland Security officials are encouraging employees to work expensive overtime hours to push through as many U.S. citizenship applications as possible before the November election. An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday. The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the...

    It's time for all the cop bashers out there to learn the truth about police work. The short explanation is that while forensics and science play a large part in modern criminal investigations, being a police officer itself is not a science. It's imperfect people doing their best to enforce imperfect laws, in an often times very difficult environment, and being forced to make split second, sometimes life and death decisions, most of the time with little if any information to base their decisions on. You want perfection, it only exists in the movies. Try 'Robocop', it's entertaining, but it's...

    The Sept. 26 issue of Time magazine cover featured the heads of comedians Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel, and the headline "We Joke.

Finally, liberals are acknowledging what conservatives have claimed for years. Inside, the headline was "The New Politics of Late Night." And writer Richard Zoglin began the article saying, "In a wild election with a ripe orange target, comics are ditching balance and taking...

    When Donald Trump stepped out on stage at a recent Miami rally, the Les Misérables classic "Do You Hear the People Sing?" boomed from the audio system. The audience – which, let's be honest, probably isn't that into musicals – erupted. Cheers filled the arena as the Manhattan socialite-turned-savior of the outcasts took to the podium, saying, "Welcome to all of you deplorables." In that moment, Trump (or his campaign) found the perfect musical accompaniment to his pugnacious campaign for the presidency. Twisted Sister this wasn't. It was a joyous tribute to the "song of angry men" that underlies Trump's...

    Rarely in history has an offer of 13 billion euros been refused by a state or organization. Yet the government of Ireland entered the book of records on September 2, 2016 by not taking the offered gift. Instead, it decided to appeal against the ruling of the European Commission that it had granted Apple undue and illegal tax benefits that allowed the company to pay substantially less tax than other businesses, and that Ireland should recover the illegal aid. The European Commission had no specific concern about the Irish tax system, nor is it anxious to harmonize corporate tax rates...

    09/22/2016 1:12:59 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | September 22, 2016 | Jason Hopkins
    It is common practice in Swiss schools that students shake their teachers’ hands at the beginning and end of each day. Two Muslim teen brothers created an uproar in April when they refused, citing their religion, to shake the hands of their female teachers. At first, school officials attempted to reach a “compromise” with Amer Salhani and his older brother by allowing them to refuse to shake any teacher's hand – be it male or female. However, this decision was met with huge backlash in Switzerland and the international community. The decision to accommodate was eventually rescinded and now the...
  • Reid: Let's Face It, Informed Americans Know Obamacare is a Success (What An Idiot)

    Right out of the gate, let's pause and savor the fact that the US Senate will be rid of its most miserable member -- a widely-detested serial smear merchant, sleazy character assassin, and creepy obsessive -- in a few short months. Harry Reid's poisonous reign is nearly over, and there's a decent chance Nevada's voters will replace him with a Republican. But for the moment, he's still around, doing his thing. Having taken a victory lap over his admitted slander of Mitt Romney four years ago, here's Dingy Harry insisting that informed Americans are deeply grateful for the turd sandwich of broken promises that is Obamacare: (1 of 2) Challenge...
  • Due Process Is Vital to Freedom

    "No person shall ... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law..." -- Fifth Amendment to the U.S. ConstitutionThe clash in American history between liberty and safety is as old as the republic itself. As far back as 1798, notwithstanding the lofty goals and individualistic values of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the same generation -- in some cases the same human beings -- that wrote in the First Amendment that "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech" enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts, which punished speech critical of the...
  • Memo to GOP 'Never Trumpers': Reagan Isn't Rising From the Dead

    A "never Trump" friend I've known since law school writes: "My former partner is old enough to have voted for Barry Goldwater. And like me, he is pro-choice, pro-gay rights and libertarian, so there are some Neanderthal Republicans out there who are just too distasteful to vote for. So, like me, he often votes Libertarian. He does not see much about Donald Trump that resembles a traditional Republican." For the millionth time, Trump is not a fiscal conservative. He is a populist. And his near-embrace by many evangelicals notwithstanding, New Yorker Trump with "New York values" is likely pro-choice and...
  • Donald Trump’s Ancestry: How His Immigrant Family Made It In America

    Whatever you may think of real-estate mogul-turned-presidential-candidate Donald Trump’s politics, you can’t deny his many ups and downs are entertaining. As he continues to make the subject of immigration one of his talking points, his own origins tell an interesting tale of ambitious young people crossing the ocean to make something of themselves in this country. Some of that story is documented right in the Ancestry archives. Let’s take a look at Trump’s intriguing ancestors. A 16-Year-Old Crosses the Atlantic First, you can find on the passenger list of the SS Eider in 1885 Trump’s grandfather, Friederich Trump (or Friedrich...

    If you wrote the story of this election as fiction two years ago, your publisher would demand it be called a farce. If you had a vision of this election 20 years ago and told anyone about it, you would be institutionalized to this day. Even now, in the midst of it all, much of the 2016 presidential election reads as parody. And the media coverage is the tip of that absurdist spear aiming for the heart of reality. The media loves nothing like it loves itself. With the possible exception of Hollywood, no industry awards itself more for doing...

    This summer, President Obama was often golfing. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were promising to let the world be. The end of summer seemed sleepy, the world relatively calm. The summer of 1914 in Europe also seemed quiet. But on July 28, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in Sarajevo by Gavrilo Princip with help from his accomplices, fellow Serbian separatists. That isolated act sparked World War I. In the summer of 1939, most observers thought Adolf Hitler was finally through with his serial bullying. Appeasement supposedly had satiated his once enormous territorial appetites. But on Sept. 1, Nazi...

    Donald Trump-mentum is steam-rolling Hillary Clinton across the country. The third-party candidates are dragging down her already bedraggled chances. Her coughing fits, her unsure (or rather non-existent) relationship with facts, truth, and anything else pertaining to reality have harmed her already marred image. Clinton could be heading to the Big House before she sets foot in the White House. I must admit, I didn’t think the brash populism of the NYC real estate mogul would be enough. He kicked political correctness in the teeth, and he savaged assured the widespread silent majority (now shouting for leadership) that he would stop...

    The media meltdown we are gobbling popcorn to right now is the result of two key phenomena – we normals have grown tired of the media elite’s lies, and today’s technology allows us to ignore the people who would presume to tell us what we can and cannot know. As the walls collapse around the few remaining information gates and we barbarians bypass them, gatekeeper gigs are becoming as rare as jobs for millennials with masters degrees in Feminist Interpretive Dance. Now you media creeps are finding yourself ignored and irrelevant as America proceeds to do whatever the hell it...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: It's a sad observation, folks. I'm telling you, a sad, sad observation but it's an observation that I don't think I'm alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don't care about the details. It seems like it's now axiomatic that there's going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons. Now, stop and think about this. Where are we here? We're in the United States of America....

The people on the left who used to love Matt Lauer, they let Matt buy an expansion of his house over in the Hamptons. That meant that he was an accredited member of the establishment. He wanted to add onto his property out there, and they said, "Fine, do it," and he did. Now that's the last place he wants to go. His own buddies have turned on him because...
