  • Dem Senator Claims White House Economic Adviser Faked Bad Connection to End Trump Call

    11/22/2017 2:14:43 PM PST · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | November 22, 2017 | Cortney O'Brien
    In what was certainly one of the stranger exchanges on cable news Wednesday, Democratic Sen. Tom Carper (DE) claimed on CNN that White House economic adviser Gary Cohn followed his advice and faked a bad connection to get off the phone with President Trump earlier this month.The discussion, Carper claimed, was over tax reform. According to Carper, 30 minutes into the meeting, Cohn got a call from Trump in Asia, which Carper said was "nice," but he said, "15 minutes later, the president's still talking.""I said, ‘Gary, why don't you do this? Take your cell phone back and just say,...
  • The LAPD Now Has a Lamborghini Cop Car ...

    The LAPD Now Has a Lamborghini Cop Car, Because Charity Los Angeles is a town of dreams, of wonder, of authenticity, heart, and soul. Oh wait. No. It is none of those things. Which is why instead of getting a Morgan Three Wheeler like my constant letters have suggested, they went out and got a Lamborghini Gallardo. Figures. Just like Dubai. In all fairness, the LAPD Lamborghini isn't actually part of the force to show off, or just to keep up with the Emirati Joneses with their ridiculous Bugatti Veyron cop car, but was rather donated to them by a...

    Herald Sun ^ | 21 April 2006
    A HECKLER from the Falun Gong spiritual movement, who entered White House grounds as a reporter, interrupted a formal arrival ceremony for Chinese President Hu Jintao today, prompting President George W. Bush to apologise to his guest. After being welcomed by Mr Bush, the Chinese president was just beginning his response when a woman, who had been allowed into the press section, started shouting. She was escorted away by a uniformed US guard. "President Hu, your days are numbered. President Bush, make him stop persecuting Falun Gong," the woman yelled. US officials later identified her as Wang Wenyi, 47, a...
  • 1862 and 2006: Carping, Posturing and Betrayal

    History, the Roman historian Livy said, is the best medicine for a troubled mind. And these indeed are troubling times. Abetted by their shills in the mainstream media, the liberal Democrats are trying to wring every ounce of partisan advantage from the war in Iraq, no matter how much such carping undermines our resolve and comforts the enemy. But as I’m reminded while re-reading the first volume of Shelby Foote’s masterpiece The Civil War, not much of our current crisis is really that new; but what is new is particularly dangerous. Take the partisan carping first. Nothing we’ve seen in...

    WaPo misses it at : The title: "New F.B.I. Memos Describe Abuses of Iraq Inmates" The e-mail, which you can find here along with the rest of the documents here goes to great pains not to call it abuse. Abuse is a legal definition, and the memo states that what happened, if legal, is not abuse. But let's be honest, do I really need to link to all the news throughout the world of far greater abuses going on? Where is the outrage there? There isn't any, because it can't be used to impeach Rumsfeld.
  • Enough With The Neocon And Paleocon Carping—I'll Stand With George W. Bush In 2004

    Enough With The Neocon And PaleoconCarping—I'll Stand With George W. Bush In 2004 Like most Toogood Reports readers, I observed this year's battles within the conservative ranks with profound discomfort. In my mind, there are far too many real enemies out there to waste time and print fighting one another. It seems that the world of conservatism has been split up between the "conservatives" and the "paleo-conservatives" or between the "conservatives" and the "neo-conservatives." Both sides present themselves as the bona fide article and the other side as the one in need of a prefix. Personally, I just want to...

    Two of the most malignant and cruel mass murderers, rapists and torturers to ever walk the Earth have departed the planet — and the Left sneers. There was a time — I can remember it clearly, though it seems a lifetime ago — when “liberals” were people who fought for humanity and human rights, people who despised murder and torture. Now, wherever we look, the people who call themselves the most “liberal” seem to be the sole remaining defenders of murder, rape, and torture. What the hell has happened to those people? I was very happy today when I heard...
