    <p>WASHINGTON (AP) — The prognosis for President Donald Trump and his party was grim.</p> <p>In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor in the election wouldn’t be the improving economy or the steady increase in job creation. It would be how voters feel about Trump. And the majority of the electorate, including a sizable percentage of Republican-leaning voters, doesn’t feel good about the president, according to a presentation from pollster Neil Newhouse that spanned dozens of pages.</p>
  • Storm Surge of Bias: Liberal Media is actually blaming Trump for Hurricane Florence

    As if the media hadn’t already covered itself in shame this week by using 9/11 to malign President Trump, it is now using Hurricane Florence as a cudgel with which to beat him. Yesterday, The Washington Post’s editorial board ran a piece titled, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” Complicit. You read that right. But they weren’t through. “When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit,” it read. “He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any...
  • Trump Court Will Bring Fundamentalist Version of Sharia Law

    The Los Angeles Progressive ^ | September 4, 2018 | Ralph E. Shaffer, professor emeritus of history at Cal Poly Pomona.
    As President Donald Trump packs the Supreme Court with justices adhering to his fundamentalist brand of social conservatism, the return to an era in American history when questionable religious standards were the law of the land in most states is fast approaching. Women, ethnic minorities, and gays are about to undergo a reversal of the gains made by decisions of the high court since the 1950s. In less than two years, Trump has taken the opportunity to nominate two staunch social conservatives to the court. Justice Neil Gorsuch merely filled the vacancy created by the sudden death of Antonin Scalia,...

    It's been nearly a century since scientists first theorized that the Universe was expanding, and that the farther away a galaxy was from us, the faster it appears to recede. This isn't because galaxies are physically moving away from us, but rather because the Universe is full of gravitationally-bound objects, and the fabric of space that those objects reside in is expanding. But this picture, which held sway from the 1920s onward, has been recently revised. It's been only 20 years since we first realized that this expansion was speeding up, and that as time goes on, individual galaxies will...

    The Hill ^ | August 7, 2018
    LOS ANGELES — Republicans hoping to hold on to their majorities in state legislative chambers across the country are nervously eying President Trump’s anemic approval rating, concerned that a wave of voter anger could undo years of gains. In interviews at the National Conference of State Legislators' annual meetings last week, Republican leaders from purple and red states said they were worried that their members — most of whom are little-known even inside their own districts — are most vulnerable to an electoral atmosphere that even slightly benefits Democrats. “There is more Democratic enthusiasm than I have seen in the...

    July 28, 2018Earth, Environment Scientists Predict Mass Extinction Could Be Triggered By 2100 by Ben Renner BOSTON — Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) predict that by 2100, the earth’s oceans will contain so much carbon that a sixth mass extinction will begin. “This is not saying that disaster occurs the next day,” explains Daniel Rothman, a professor of geophysics in the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, about his recent study in a media release. “It’s saying that, if left unchecked, the carbon cycle would move into a realm which would be no longer stable,...

    EUROPE is braced for its hottest day since records began today with temperatures likely to soar above the 118F high set 40 years ago. Thousands of Brit holidaymakers and expats in Spain and Portugal will pile on to packed beaches as the heatwave peaks. The blistering sunshine is widely tipped to pass the 118.4F (48C) recorded in Athens, Greece, on July 10, 1977. And the deadly scorcher — driven by an African plume carrying Saharan dust with it — will spark a mini-revival of Britain’s heatwave with temperatures of 88F (31C) expected all weekend. But it could also lead to...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Many supporters of President Donald Trump saw 2016 as a do-or-die election. Now, Democrats are increasingly showing that they think the same thing about 2018. In The Daily Caller News Foundation’s fact check videos, Anders Hagstrom highlights claims from politicians and the media alike, setting the record straight on double standards and mischaracterizations.

    The Hill ran a headline predicting the demise of President Trump this week, citing MSNBC legal expert Jonathan Turley. “Cohen flipping puts Trump ‘one witness away’ from catastrophe,” the headline read. Turley is a serious legal mind not prone to the hyperbole of his liberal brothers. But his latest prediction of the end of Trump’s presidency invokes a whiff of déjà vu. Where have we heard before that Donald Trump’s downfall is imminent? Well, for more than three years, predictions of Trump’s demise as a candidate or as president have averaged about one a month. Let’s review. Here’s a very...

    The View continued its pathetic pandering to Democrat party officials today, after having Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the show in the past few weeks for softball interviews. Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett appeared on Wednesday’s show for another friendly conversation, where host Joy Behar lamented that Trump was going to destroy the world and it was imperative that Obama condemn him publicly. They opened by asking Jarrett about Roseanne Barr’s recent apology over her racist tweet targeting Jarrett. Jarrett denied being concerned about it, saying that what “really kept her up at night” was Trump’s border policy. Behar...

I need 100,000 signatures to BLOCK his visit and keep our elections safe. I need you to sign before midnight,” Pelosi told Democratic voters in a DCCC fundraising email sent out on Sunday.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, mulling a possible 2020 presidential run, ripped into the Trump administration’s immigration policies on Friday -- calling them “one of the darkest moments in our history” at a rally held by a Latino civil rights organization. Biden made his fiery remarks in Phoenix, Arizona, at an event for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). He specifically targeted the Justice Department’s “zero tolerance” policy on prosecuting all illegal border crossers. “Grotesque lies, lies about immigrants, about crime, about costs to the community,” said Biden. “This administration’s policies that literally rip babies from the arms...

    New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch says he hopes the NFL has heard the last from President Donald Trump regarding players kneeling during the national anthem. [Snip] "Hopefully he'll have much more going on that he's going have to deal with and should deal with and must deal with than worrying about what NFL players do," Tisch said. "He has no understanding of why they take a knee or why they're protesting. When the new season starts, I hope his priorities are not criticizing the NFL and telling owners what to do and what not to do."

    A few months ago, the Democrat-Media Complex was brimming with bravado: this fall’s congressional elections, the story went, were sure to rebuke the gauche interloper Donald Trump and swamp him and his minions in a giant “Blue Wave” that would restore Democrats’ control of the legislative branch, launch impeachment proceedings in the House, convict him in the Senate, and drive him from office as the wronged Dowager Empress of Chappaqua resumed her rightful place in the People’s House. Et voila! The restoration of the old order and a new tsunami of “progressive” regulations would ensure nothing like Trump would ever...

    President Donald Trump, more than any modern president, freely expresses his racist views — whether it is calling Mexican immigrants rapists, asserting that immigrants “infest” America, saying neo-Nazis include some “very fine people,” preferring Norwegian immigrants to those from “sh--hole” countries or associating immigrants with crime in public and in private. (In May, The Post reported on an episode in April 2017: “Trump reminded them the crowds loved his rhetoric on immigrants along the campaign trail. Acting as if he were at a rally, he recited a few made-up Hispanic names and described potential crimes they could have committed, such...

    Astronomers have calculated the Apophis asteroid will speed past Earth on April 13, 2029, at just 18,600 miles away -- a hair's width in astronomical terms. To put that into perspective, the moon is 238,900 miles away... If the 27 billion kg asteroid were to hit Earth, scientists calculate that it would leave a crater over a mile wide and a staggering 518 metres deep. However, most worryingly, the impact would be equivalent to 880 million tons of TNT being detonated -- some 65,000 times as powerful as the nuclear bomb which was dropped on Hiroshima. The next time the...

    Vatican City — The Vatican's secretary of state warned July 5 that humanity is facing a "possible collapse" in the Earth's ability to sustain life, as part of a two-day conference hosted by the Catholic Church to urge global leaders to mitigate the devastating impacts of climate change. In an address opening the "Saving Our Common Home" event, Cardinal Pietro Parolin said there is a "clear urgency" to the task and that people around the world, "as members of the common household, need to come together."
