  • Portland mayor stands by decision to allow Antifa to block traffic, hassle motorists

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler came under fire over a viral video showing Antifa protesters blocking traffic and harassing drivers, but he says he supports the decision by police to watch from a distance without getting involved. “I was appalled by what I saw in the video, but I support the Portland Police Bureau’s decision not to intervene,” he said at a Friday press conference. “This whole incident will be investigated.” The video posted by journalist Andy C. Ngo showed protesters, including members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, blocking an intersection and attempting to direct traffic at while officers on...

    Democrats can defeat the Trump base. But only if they ditch Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — and rally female voters What the angry white male writing this column wants to know is who will hit back for the Democrats? My polling cohort, older white men, took a public-relations beating during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings — and I say it’s about time. Never in modern political history have so many been given so much by our culture and yet have been so casual about the health of the Republic.
  • GOP hammers ‘mob’ message for midterms, as Dems howl over label

    Liberal protesters – egged on by Democratic politicians – are openly embracing a more confrontational and aggressive approach, banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, confronting lawmakers outside their offices and chasing GOP officials out of restaurants. And Republicans are quickly seizing on that spectacle to hammer a new midterm message, decrying the “mob” behavior and warning that Democrats would bring that mentality into the majority should they prevail in November's election.

    McCONNELLS MILL, Pa. -- Darcelle Slappy says Democrats and Republicans who live in places like this part of Western Pennsylvania are a lot closer than how they're portrayed on TV. "Unlike Washington, we are all just a few notches from each other in either direction," Slappy says. "We have much more that draws us together than divides us." In fact, she says the divide in this country isn't Republican versus Democrat: "The real division is between the elites and us." If you watch TV news or read most mainstream media, you would believe our country is in meltdown. In a...

    UPDATE: Uh Oh. Dems had a 10% edge in July on registered voters who said the election was very important. That edge was 2% Monday— James Arkin (@JamesArkin) October 3, 2018 ***Democrats needed something for 2018. For most of 2017-2018, the Left has just complained. Trump is doing this, that, or the other—and it’s wrong. Also, we’re in a constitutional crisis. If we were, and we weren’t, folks, then we’ve survived some 400 crises thus far. For a party that says institutional integrity has come under attack, they’ve remained firm despite the Trump White House’s phantom attempts to undermine...
  • A 'Witch Hunt' Counter Move -- Clinton Judges [aw!m vanity]

    09/30/2018 4:48:06 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 4 replies
    A counter move to future judicial witch hunts and high-tech lynchings -- if they think that Trump is so vile toward women that his nominees should be Feinsteined, then...! What the heck about Bill Clinton's judges? Fair is fair. Only agree to future witch hunts if Clinton's judges are re-examined just as thoroughly. It is a certainty that some of Bill Clinton's judges committed sex crimes. Not only is the ex-president well established as the most vile individual to ever be elected, but he befriended other perverts and rewarded his mistress with a federal job. Where did Clinton first meet...

    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like “a statesman.” As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this week’s hearings. Say what?...

    Welcome back to the political arena. I caught your speech Friday, you can still read a teleprompter like nobody’s business. Your attacks on Republicans were red meat for your base, which was your goal. Thankfully, they are hungry because President Trump stands on the verge of getting a second Supreme Court justice confirmed. (Do you wake up in the middle of the night screaming, “Merrick Garland!” like so many of your fans do? I kind of hope so.) And I don’t begrudge your breaking with tradition of former Presidents not criticizing their successors. You spent 8 years in office whining...

    All ten of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to committee chair Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Friday asking him to postpone the September 4th confirmation hearing for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh."Given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing by the President, doubts that Judge Kavanaugh believes a president can even be investigated, and the unprecedented lack of transparency regarding this nominee’s record, we should not move forward with hearings on September 4th," they wrote."The President’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts and stated, under oath, that the President directed him to...

    his confirmation hearings until after the midterm elections, in which they hope to gain the majority in the House so that they can commence their already planned impeachment proceedings. Hand-wringing Democratic senators are hemorrhaging phony concerns about proceeding with Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. Sen. Mazie Hirono said she would cancel a planned meeting with Kavanaugh because Trump, whom she called an unindicted co-conspirator, "does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee" in the wake of Cohen's claims about Trump in federal court Tuesday. The composition of the Supreme Court is not a matter of what a president "deserves."...

    "If anyone is looking for a good lawyer," said President Donald Trump ruefully, "I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen." Michael Cohen is no Roy Cohn. Tuesday, Trump's ex-lawyer, staring at five years in prison, pled guilty to a campaign violation that may not even be a crime. Cohen had fronted the cash, $130,000, to pay porn star Stormy Daniels for keeping quiet about a decade-old tryst with Trump. He had also brokered a deal whereby the National Enquirer bought the rights to a story about a Trump affair with a Playboy model,...

    We’ve been hearing it for months: the blue wave is coming. The Democrats are going to retake the House. The Democratic ballot advantage is significant. Well, if that does occur, a blue wave, congressional Democrats will move to impeach President Trump on bogus charges. There is still zero evidence to suggest the president’s campaign colluded with the Russians. Oh, what about campaign finance? The Obama campaign was fined for violations. Did he ever face impeachment charges? It’ll be a circus, a pervasive parade of nonsense, hyperbole, and liberal whining the likes of which we’ve never seen. And we’ve seen a...

    There once was a time in American history – in fact perhaps for the bulk of it– when cross-party voting was nothing special but rather the norm. Electoral results would vary wildly as voters deviated wildly from their partisan loyalties and even the power of party on our elected representatives was far weaker.Nowadays the mere thought of cross-party voting baffles the minds of most on either side of the aisle, as if it were an unspeakable heresy or like a Yankees fan hoping one game that the Red Sox win it.Part of the reason for this is that the impact of party-line...

    Every time I think the political left has hit bottom they break out a shovel. This week it was a jackhammer and a backhoe, and deeper they went. It started with almost 350 newspapers banding together against President Trump to declare themselves to free and independent of groupthink and bias. Each of them declared themselves, in one form or another, to be champions of truth. If you missed it in your paper it was likely just under 1,000-word write-up of whatever the latest wild Omarosa claim was that day. Lost in these self-serving exercises was the fact that President Trump...

    In 2003, the late and celebrated writer Charles Krauthammer coined the term “Bush Derangement Syndrome,” which he described as: “The acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency – nay – the very existence of George W. Bush.” Prior to becoming one of the most respected political analysts of his time, Charles Krauthammer was Dr. Krauthammer, a psychiatrist, who treated people for various forms of mental illness. In this regard, he was a uniquely qualified observer of American politics. Krauthammer was not a Trump supporter, but the behavior of the left after the...

    Rising Democratic socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explained to Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show” Thursday how she planned to pay for the ideas that she campaigned on in her stunning primary defeat over fourth-ranking House Democrat Joe Crowley (NY).After Ocasio-Cortez went through the main things she wants government to pay for, including Medicare for all and education, Noah brought up the more practical side of things.“You always see people coming in with economic arguments, and they say, look, these numbers don’t really add up,” he argued. “You know, in order to get healthcare for everybody, this is what it would...

    Last week I was ignored. It happened while I was eating an organic salad on the patio outside my local Whole Foods situated in the second largest county in the nation’s most ferocious battleground state.Why was I ignored by the white middle-aged woman carrying a clipboard wearing a “Register-to-Vote Here” T-shirt who was standing only six feet away?  Was I ignored because I am a white female over age 50? Was I ignored because I was wearing a cross? Those questions swirled around my brain as I observed the clipboard lady ask everyone who walked between us if they would like...

    San Francisco is permitting "undocumented immigrants," as political correctness demands we label them, to register to vote this November in local school board elections. Who doubts this is the first step by the left and Democrats toward full voting rights in state and eventually in federal elections? The claim by lawyers will be that it is discriminatory to allow undocumented immigrants to vote in local and state elections and not for members of Congress and for president. At bottom this is what the entire immigration debate is about. The former head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was interviewed last...

    While Democrats attack Trump at every turn, here are 13 sure-fire ways Democrats can continue to alienate an electorate months before the midterm elections: 1. Demonize your opponents—call them ignorant, racists, xenophobes, sexists, and Islamophobes. Resist dealing with real issues or your own positions. Stay on attack and foster hysteria at every opportunity! 2. Let the immigrants waiting years in line to come to America legally wait longer. Establish sanctuary for illegal aliens keeping them in the shadows dependent on your support. 3. Keep claiming that the rich don’t pay their fair share! They do, but transferring their wealth to...
