    New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer ^ | June 25, 2017 | Alex Carp
    How long will President Trump survive? Nobody knows, but everyone’s guessing. It’s a basic principle of psychology that the defenses we erect to defend our value always end up producing exactly what we are trying to avoid. In Trump’s case, the relentless insistence that he didn’t do it feeds the case that he did do it. I don’t know what the “it” will turn out to be, but I know Trump well enough to know that there are countless potential “its.” I believe the end for Trump is much closer than most people imagine. Perhaps that’s wishful thinking, and I...

    Digital Journal ^ | June 25, 2017 | Bruce Edwin, Hollywood Sentinel Public Relations
    The Legendary Psychic Rose Stuart Returns to her hometown of Great Falls, Montana this month, where she is the most popular and respected psychic serving the public in Canada and the Northwestern United States. World renown Rose Stuart predicted Donad Trump’s win, election tampering by Russia, and attempts by Obama, Hillary, and certain other Democrats to get Trump impeached. She warns that the current major threat to the United States is not necessarily North Korea, but rather certain covert hostilities from Iran that are intent on harming America. Located across from the Great Falls shopping mall in Great Falls, Montana,...

    Fans of Walt Disney World have been waiting to see exactly what was going to happen to the Hall of Presidents attraction at Magic Kingdom, and now, they’ll have to wait a bit longer. It is originally scheduled to reopen this upcoming week, but there has been a great concern as it appeared as if Donald Trump was not working the company to get it going, but now, there is a new reopening date and an update on whether the president is going to say a few words. The Hall of Presidents is a historical attraction at Magic Kingdom which...

    In Faridabad on New Delhi's outskirts, about 20 men have gathered pre dawn, for yoga and patriotic rituals. As the sun rises, there's a militaristic feel — brandishing bamboo poles, the group chants "Bharat mata ki jai" (Victory to India). This is a branch meeting of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) — a right-wing Hindu-nationalist organisation aligned to India's ruling Bharatiya Janata party. Among this group, there's strong support for Donald Trump's confrontational approach to Islamic terrorism. "Many Muslim countries engage in acts of terrorism which is harmful for India," engineering consultant Kushal Pal tells the ABC. "India is suffering...

    The Hill ^ | June 25, 2017 | Olivia Beavers and Reuters
    Conservative activists led rallies in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, protesting the recent list of celebrities who have made violent jokes about President Trump, Reuters reported. According to the newswire, a pair of rallies took place. At one event, the protestors faced off with almost as many counter-protesters on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Richard Spencer, a self-described white nationalist and founder of the so-called "alt-right" movement, drew a larger crowd of about 100 supporters to the rally at the Lincoln Memorial, which memorializes a president who is associated with ending slavery in the country. Spencer reportedly told journalists before...

    WASHINGTON/June 24, 2017 (AP)(STL.News) — Two weeks into her new life as a full-time Washingtonian, Melania Trump is staying true to her reputation as more homebody than social butterfly. Not that she hasn’t been busy fulfilling her duties as first lady and first mom. Her top priority has been settling in 11-year-old son Barron — the first boy in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr. more than 50 years ago.....

    When it comes to domestic terrorism in America, the numbers don’t lie: Far-right extremists are behind far more plots and attacks than Islamist extremists. There were almost twice as many terrorist incidents by right-wing extremists as by Islamist extremists in the U.S. from 2008 to 2016, according to a new report from The Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund and The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal. Looking at both plots and attacks carried out, the group tracked 201 terrorist incidents on U.S. soil from January 2008 to the end of 2016. The database shows 115 cases by right-wing extremists ― from white...

    Lately, I have been discovering some old classics such as R Kelly’s 'Ignition' and Natalie Imbruglia’s 'Torn'. However, instead of listening to the original mixes, I have been enjoying some emerging bands and finding that I prefer some of them to the originals! All of the songs I am about to review are on Spotify and you can listen to them on there free of charge.
  • Dear Lefty Media: Democrats are Still Unpopular in the Suburbs

    Red State ^ | June 22, 2017 | Sarah Lee
    Why is it that every time the Democrats suffer a defeat, the media rushes to their aid, giving us the “it’s merely a flesh wound!” prognosis, and telling us here’s how the GOP is actually going to have its clocked cleaned any minute now. Any minute. So it is with this well-written, well-researched, and wrong piece from Politico Magazine, titled: “The GOP’s Suburban Nightmare.” Giving credit where it’s due, this writer does his homework in attempting to craft a convincing argument that Trump’s poor(er than Reagan) showing in suburban America is a sign of the impending doom of the GOP...

    This week, Karen Handel became the first Republican woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from the great state of Georgia. She beat out her male Democratic opponent for the seat in the most expensive House race in U.S. history, shattering all kinds of glass ceilings in the process. But according to liberal feminist writer Jill Filipovic, you’re a toxic and vindictive person if you voted for her. Yep. Instead of being happy that a woman won a seat in Congress, Filipovic actually called Handel’s voters “hateful white people” because they didn’t elect the straight white man. Why? Because...
  • A Surprising Number Of Men In Washington State Aren’t Registered For The Draft. That’s A Felony

    Task & Purpose ^ | June 16, 2017 | Melissa Santos, The News Tribune
    Federal officials say nearly one out of six young men in Washington state are committing a felony, and they might not even know it. Their crime? Not registering for a nonexistent military draft. Despite the United States not having pressed anyone into military service since 1973, virtually all men ages 18 to 25 still are required to register with the Selective Service System. The agency keeps men’s information on file in case the country needs to mobilize a military force during a time of crisis. Not registering can cause men big problems down the road, officials say. For one, it...
  • Why the New Healthcare Bill Will Be a Loser

    Scott Adams' Blog ^ | June 21, 2017 | Scott Adams
    People accuse me of imagining that everything President Trump does is brilliant (persuasion-wise) no matter what he does. But I expect the next version of the Republican healthcare bill to be a complete failure. That’s because Republicans seem deeply committed to a losing path, thanks to what might be called the Contrast Problem. Contrast is the driving principle behind all decisions. You have to know how your options differ, and by how much, or else you have no basis for a decision. President Obama solved for the contrast problem by designing Obamacare to cover more people than before. The rest...

    We think of Atlanta as the black metropolis but during the Great Migration, where did all the black Southerners go? A lot went to Chicago, and their descendants are still there. Or were. Cause it turns out, the “black exodus” is very real in the city of Chicago. Chicago's Cook Country had — and has — the largest population of black people of any county in the United States. But Cook County has shown noticeable dips in its black population within the past year or so. In fact, the Chicago Tribune reports that more than 12,000 black residents left the...

    The Global Dispatch ^ | June 22, 2017 | Roxanne "Butter" Bracco
    During an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, Camille Paglia destroyed Democrats, the media and journalists for their collusion and bias against Republicans and President Trump. “It’s obscene,” Pagilia said. “It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.” Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover. “I’m a professor of media studies, in addition...

    One man took a stand against Dolce & Gabbana's ties to Donald Trump at the brand's fashion show in Milan this weekend. While all eyes were on Miley Cyrus' feud with the designers, Atlanta-based musician Raury protested D&G while walking the runway for the Italian design house. Near the end of the runway, Raury took off his D&G top ― revealing the phrases "Protest D&G," "Give me freedom," and "I am not your scapegoat" ― and raised a closed fist to the sky. He posted the powerful photo on Instagram and wrote about the emotional experience in the caption. "I...

    There are two critical questions for our age: • What is the true nature of Islam? • Why are we afraid to know about it? This talk ties together the rise of Islam, the annihilation of classical civilization, the Dark Ages, the Islamic Golden Age, the doctrine of jihad and the psychology of the Western mind as analogous to the abused wife, all based on two large sets of data. The idea is the result of 10 years of research and it took 6 months to prepare the content and the graphics. For your viewing pleasure: Why We Are Afraid...

    An Iowa newspaper ran a front-page editorial Wednesday telling President Trump that "now is not the time for a rally" ahead of his campaign event scheduled in the state later in the day. The editorial board of The Gazette in Cedar Rapids asked in an open letter to Trump for him to not hold his scheduled rally in the city but instead talk about his policies and how he will help Iowans. (TWEET-AT-LINK) “Mr. President, the campaign is over. You won. Now is not the time to rally. Now is the time to sell your policies, listen to Americans with...
