    BuzzFeed and the hateful left-wing media is at it again — these MAGA teens were doxxed and are now in fear for their lives! On Friday, a group of high school boys from Kentucky went to the Lincoln Memorial after attending the March For Life. While standing at the memorial a Native American activist, Nathan Phillips, approached the boys and started harassing them. Phillips, reportedly a Vietnam veteran, got up in one boy’s face and started screaming and beating his drum inches from the boy’s face. According to one of the high school boys who was present, a group of...

    Saturday was National Popcorn Day, but I’ve been nibbling on popcorn all week as Nancy Pelosi learned a lesson about presidential power and the media was gut checked by the special prosecutor. I haven’t had this much fun since election night 2016. While she might have thought otherwise, the power of the commander-in-chief is far greater than that of the speaker of the House, and the humiliating way this was brought home to the congressional equivalent of Maerose Prizzi (h/t Michael Walsh) was something. She anticipated that she and her posse of cronies and their families (reports of a ninety-some...

    Washington Post ^ | Jan. 19, 2019 | Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett
    When a BuzzFeed reporter first sought comment on the news outlet’s explosive report that President Trump had directed his lawyer to lie to Congress, the spokesman for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III treated the request as he would almost any other story. The reporter informed Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, that he and a colleague had “a story coming stating that Michael Cohen was directed by President Trump himself to lie to Congress about his negotiations related to the Trump Moscow project,” according to copies of their emails provided by a BuzzFeed spokesman. Importantly, the reporter made no reference to...

    The National Rifle Association's (NRA) insurance policy known as NRA Carry Guard is for concealed carriers who want personal liability insurance. The insurance policy protects carriers from civil liability and "provides them with immediate access to attorneys, supplementary payments as needed for bail, criminal defense legal retainer fees, lawful firearm replacement, compensation while in court, psychological support and cleanup costs for any covered claim resulting from the use of a legally possessed firearm—including an act of self-defense." Washington State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler on Tuesday announced a ban "on the sale of illegal insurance policies branded by the National Rifle...

    Trump is making liberal heads explode this morning: Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat. She is so petrified of the “lefties” in her party that she has lost control...And by the way, clean up the streets in San Francisco, they are disgusting! Don’t forget, we are building and renovating big sections of Wall right now. Moving quickly, and will cost far less than previous politicians thought possible. Building, after all, is what I do best, even when money is not readily available! Wow,...
  • Are You In Favor of the Border Wall? Now There's a Clever Way to Make Sure Nancy And Chuck Know It

    President Donald Trump's 2020 team has found a rather clever way to cash in on the border wall debate. Supporters who want a wall can now pay $20.20 to have a fake brick sent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). “Weeks after the Democrats began stonewalling President Trump in his fight to secure our border, the American people now have a chance to send a clear message to Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi about the need to build the wall,” a fundraising email sent Friday read. But according to Trump's campaign manager,...

    The Region ^ | 13/02/2018 14:13 | Marcel Cartier
    Delusional. Arrogant. Chauvinistic. Egomaniacal. All of these words could probably aptly describe Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at this historical moment. In a sense, referring to him as ‘president’ seems quite disrespectful to the countries that actually have a semblance of democratic institutions. Erdogan has proven himself a ‘leader’ who aspires to be a sultan, a neo-Ottoman dictator who not only sees the Kurdish people as ‘mountain Turks’ but the Turkey-Syria border as fluid and illegitimate. Fascist. Authoritarian. Dictatorial. The friend of al-Qaeda ideologues. With his government’s ill-named ‘Operation Olive Branch’, the 21st century Sultan has shown his willingness to...

    **SNIP** A senior Department of Justice official says he repeatedly and specifically told top officials at the FBI and DOJ about dossier author Christopher Steele’s bias and his employer Fusion GPS’ conflicts of interest, information they kept hidden from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. These conversations involved high-level officials, including some who are now senior officials in the special counsel probe. And the conversations began taking place in the earliest days of August 2016, much earlier than previously revealed to congressional investigators seeking to learn the facts about the FBI’s decision to spy on the Trump campaign. **SNIP** They also...

    A Russian hooker in Thailand was granted a suspended sentence after she said she had information on Trump-Russia Collusion for the FBI. So the Mueller Special Counsel broke her out of jail. According to reports from Asia: The Russian escort going by the name Nastya Rybka (little fish) has received a suspended sentence and released for time served (9 months) in Thailand where her group was arrested for conspiracy to provide sexual services to a group. She and her sex-trainer partner will be deported to Russia. The pair admitted to hosting a ‘sex training’ class in Thailand. Rybka apparently...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 1/19/19 | Susan Ferrechio
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Saturday she will not take up President Trump’s offer to trade off $5.7 billion in wall funding for a three-year extension of a program providing legal status for "Dreamers," who illegally went to the U.S. as children. Pelosi, D-Calif., issued a statement just before Trump’s announcement, calling the plan “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.” Pelosi said the proposal does not achieve what Democrats have long sought for the "Dreamers," which is a...

    ERBIL, KurdistanRegion— As Turkey prepares for its first local election in the post-coup era, political parties are racing to get every vote possible and opposition are finding irregularities on voter registration lists.  Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said on Tuesday that 53,099 Syrian refugees who have gained Turkish citizenship can vote in the upcoming local election.

    A federal judge on Thursday “tentatively” blamed poor maintenance of power lines and not human-caused “climate change” on California’s recent deadly wildfires. U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued his ruling regarding the actions of the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) utility company in a case related to PG&E’s response to the deadly 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion that killed a number of people. But scores of liberals in California and beyond have blamed human-caused climate change for the wildfires.

    After President Donald Trump announced his proposed immigration deal that would offer DACA protections to Democrats in exchange for wall funding, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter ripped the deal and said it would make a wall useless. There are a million things to trade for a wall: A higher federal minimum wage, an infrastructure bill, a solar panel bill,” Coulter tweeted. “Trade a wall for AMNESTY, and there’s no purpose to having a wall.” "We voted for Trump and got Jeb!” she wrote on Twitter.

    A Downtown Austin alleyway along Red River known to attract crime will be getting a physical barrier to keep people out of it. On Wednesday, city staff with the Economic Development Department presented the Downtown Commission with some of the complaints about the alley from business owners. The city is now searching for a contractor to put up a fence that’s “at least 10 feet” high at the front end of the alley way along Red River and at the back end along Waller Creek... “That alleyway needs to be shut down, it should have been shut down over five...

    **SNIP** Four organizations have sued the national Women's March group — led by activists Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour — over efforts to trademark the name, arguing that no entity can own the march or the activism it has inspired. Some groups have sought to rebrand to shed the "Women's March" name and the tumult that comes with it. As they prepare for the third annual Women's March on Saturday, leaders are grappling with the question: What is in a name, and is the name "Women's March" worth fighting for? "There's power in the name because...

    Keep Hope Alive! Back when The Wall Stree Journal's James Taranto wrote the paper's 'Best of the Web' column, one of his rubrics was 'Diagram this Sentence,' in which readers were challenged to deconstruct a long and confusing line from a [usually] liberal author. On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley offered a prime example of the genre. Responding to the refutation by the Mueller team of Buzzfeed's report that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russia collusion, Wiley said: "In this case, it doesn't mean, what we are hearing in this, does not mean...

    The anti-Trump pussy march dwindled to 10,000 participants this year in Washington DC. This was down from the estimated one-million who turned out for the violent and vulgar march in 2017. Several leaders of this Democrat pussy march continue to endorse anti-Semitic positions. And the co-leader refuses to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
