    Deadspin ^ | 7/13/18 | David Roth
    A week that began with reports that Papa John’s founder Papa “John” Schnatter somehow worked an overt hard-r racial slur into a conference call with a marketing company is ending with the removal of Schnatter’s name from virtually everything on which it had previously been emblazoned. There are only so many of these left at this point, but the University of Louisville announced on Friday that it would begin the work of prying Papa’s brand off their football stadium and, uh, The John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise at the Louisville College of Business. He had already withdrawn from...
  • The New Religion of the Left: Selectivity

    American Thinker ^ | 11 Jul, 2018 | John Scotto
    The left of today are the founders of a new religion called selectivity. Every aspect of the left's current extreme ideology involves being selective. Selective outrage, selective morality, selective media reporting, selective justice and selective "facts," all have become the "go to" weapons of the radical left. All of the above are becoming vital characteristics one must exemplify if one is going to become a practicing member of this new leftist religious cult. Every member of this leftist religious sect must take a solemn vow to always be selective when it comes to reporting on any kind of news, evidence...

    Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary...

    NY Post Page Six ^ | June 17, 2018 | Bruce Haring, Deadline
    Tough-talking actor Samuel L. Jackson wished President Donald Trump a happy birthday on Friday, but the Twitterverse took exception to the perceived anti-gay slurs in the message and laid their vengeance upon him. Jackson’s tweet: “Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday.” The tweet included an image of a product called “After Dick Mints” with the tagline “Going down?” One Twitter user asked, “Did you and Joy Reid get hacked by the same person?” The reference is to the MSNBC...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared on Wednesday to advise witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to destroy their personal phones before handing them over to prosecutors. "If I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails and then acid-wash your emails and hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer to little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the sim cards and then take the pieces and hand them over to Robert Mueller," Hannity said on air. The conservative television host's comments came after CNBC reported that Mueller's...

    Conservatives on Twitter lashed out following the swift cancellation of Roseanne Barr's hit ABC program after here racist tweet, citing a double-standard in entertainment for those who are conservative or support President Trump. The right-leaning critics took particular aim at ESPN’s decision to hire Keith Olbermann and MSNBC’s continued employment of Joy Reid. Both have made provocative comments in the past. ABC canceled Barr’s show after she wrote a tweet that referred to former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the “The Planet of the Apes” and “the Muslim Brotherhood.” Olbermann was recently hired by ESPN for...

    Just 24-hours after Roseanne was fired by ABC for making a derogatory statement about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett (which she then apologized for), leftist comedian Samantha Bee included a segment on her TBS show in which she called current White House senior advisor Ivanka Trump a "feckless c*nt." Why? Because she dared to post a photo holding her son."You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c**t!” Bee said.

    Breitbart ^ | 5/7/2018
    Artists in Chula Vista, California, who painted a school mural depicting an Aztec warrior carrying the severed head of President Donald Trump on a spear have decided to change the mural after a storm of protest. The mural also depicted the warrior holding a human heart — presumably, that of the president. The image recalls well-documented rituals of human sacrifice among the Aztecs, who are also thought to have eaten their victims. The mural was painted several days ago and then immediately covered up after local news reporters learned of it. Artist Sasha Andrade Mercado posted images of the mural...

    Motto: All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others – Animal Farm, George Orwell Speaking of activist judges who legislate from the bench, and the immense hypocrisy and double measure which is the main feature of the “left side of the force”, today’s news is about a New York judge who ruled on Wednesday that, let me quote, “supporting Trump is not a religion”, henceforth bars and restaurants can refuse to serve people wearing MAGA hats, i.e. Trump supporters. But no one else? How does this work exactly? This strange ruling comes in the aftermath of...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 20, 2018
    Former FBI agent Terry Albury is likely to receive between three and five years in prison when he’s sentenced for giving classified information to reporters, raising questions of a double standard benefiting the men who led the bureau at the time of his leaks. Albury’s illegal activities, which his attorneys call “an act of conscience,” began in February 2016, when the bureau was led by Director James Comey, and continued until August 2017, when FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s three-month stint as acting director ended. Albury, allegedly motivated by discrimination as the only African-American agent in Minneapolis, is believed to...

    Protocol is allowed by the media for Saint Obama but not for the devil they make Donald Trump out to be Why is it that when the Washington Post is caught with its houndstooth pants down, the Mainstream and Social Media are always found looking pointedly the other way? The WaPo’s “LEAD” story going viral today makes it seem that Donald Trump was the first—and only—president to ever congratulate Vladimir Putin on an election victory when, in point of fact, former president Barack Obama did the same thing, only in a much more gushing way:

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Weinstein Co. filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday with a buyout offer in hand from a private equity firm, the latest twist in its efforts to survive the sexual misconduct scandal that brought down co-founder Harvey Weinstein, shook Hollywood and triggered a movement that spread out to convulse other industries. The company also announced it was releasing any victims of or witnesses to Weinstein’s alleged misconduct from non-disclosure agreements preventing them from speaking out.

    A 19-year-old Texas councilman whose nude photos from a dating app were exposed is defending the snaps as “freedom of expression,” according to reports. Cross Coburn, who identifies as gay, said he believes homophobia is behind the X-rated photo leak, which came to light Monday when an envelope with the pics was anonymously delivered to Groves City Hall, where he is the youngest sitting councilman, news station KDFM reported. “I felt like I was being harassed; discriminated against because I’m a young gay man on City Council,” Coburn told the news station. He claimed that the screenshots of raunchy conversations...

    Twitter has refused to comment on anti-Semitic tweets from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, including one where he writes "the Jews have control over those agencies [FBI] of government." When reached for a response by Fox News, a Twitter spokesman said the company does not comment on individual accounts. The spokesman pointed Fox News to the company's help center, where it details its enforcement options and its approach to enforcement philosophy and policy development. The 84-year-old Farrakhan posted several bizarre tweets regarding Jews this week, including the aforementioned tweet about government agencies, specifically the FBI.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, a mail order scam with all the credibility of a guy selling fake Rolex watches on a street corner at midnight, has done it again. The same lefty hate group whose hate map led to at least one violent attack on a religious group, which listed a sign outside a bar as a hate group and blatantly faked an Islamophobia increase is back in action. This time the SPLC is denouncing female male supremacism. It's like white supremacism, except with men. So it's very trendy. But just as its Islamophobia materials accused some Muslims of...

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to use a controversial 35-page dossier financed by the Democratic National Committee and the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign as a "road map” for investigative leads, sources familiar with his investigation say. Mueller’s team has also used information gleaned from surveillance court-approved wiretaps on former Trump adviser Carter Page that were secured by citing material in the dossier, the sources say. And a detail previously reported last fall – that Mueller’s investigators traveled overseas last year to debrief the dossier’s London-based author, Christopher Steele, a former British spy – takes on a new cast with...
