  • Wolff so bad not even Megyn Kelly will host him

    01/07/2018 10:30:53 AM PST · by rktman · 21 replies ^ | 1/7/2018 | Monica Showalter
    Bottom-ranked NBC news host Megyn Kelly is refusing to host Michael Wolff on her show to talk about his new anti-Trump book, "Fire and Fury:Inside the Trump White House." According to the New York Post: President Donald Trump isn’t the only person who columnist and author Michael Wolff has recently left in a shaking rage. “Today” anchor Megyn Kelly refused to host Wolff on her show when he was promoting his book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” last week. That's interesting because she is known for begging, borrowing and stealing any news "get," or interview, on whatever...
  • Maddow, O’Donnell Lose It Over VA Results: ‘Tonight’s History Is Being Written by Movie Writers’

    After being relatively well-behaved, MSNBC eventually burst out gloating over the Democratic Party’s tidal wave victories in Virginia as pundits Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell celebrated and particularly over the “stunning” victory of transgender House of Delegates candidate Danica Roem that they deemed a night in which “history is being written by movie writers.” O’Donnell was later assisted in the triumphant debriefing by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who encouraged Democrats to put “some referendums on the ballot on guns, on reproductive health, on a lot of other issues, so, I think is a good omen for Democrats in...
  • GOP postpones tax bill rollout; future uncertain

    Republicans in Congress are postponing the roll out of their tax reform bill until at least Thursday. Kevin Brady, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, says there are too many issues that need to be resolved before details of the plan can be discussed. Politico: Some details of the bill started leaking out Tuesday after Speaker Paul Ryan briefed conservative leaders on text that had been finalized. The proposal, sources in the meeting said, would lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, meeting their initial goal. They’ve also decided to keep the current top 39.6 percent tax...

    A photo of pop music star Lady Gaga and all five living former presidents went viral on social media this weekend as the group united to raise money for disaster relief. Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama gathered for a benefit concert at the One America Appeal fundraiser.

    In the wake of the Vegas shooting, Hollywood actors are urging people to “call Congress” and ask them to oppose any gun measures backed by the National Rifle Association. In a video for Everytown for Gun Safety, Emma Stone, Bill Hader, Melissa McCarthy, and others voice support for gun control legislation and ask viewers to text Everytown for Gun Safety so that they can be connected with their congressmen. “The mass shooting in Las Vegas has all of us grieving, scared, and angry,” Stone begins in the video. “Knowing what to do about it can be confusing,” Bill Hader continues....
  • ATF Association: Bump Stocks Do Not Convert Semiautomatics into Automatics

    10/18/2017 8:48:03 AM PDT · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 10/18/2017 | AWR Hawkins
    In a letter dated October 12, the ATF Association informed lawmakers that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) approved bump stocks because they do not turn a semiautomatic rifle into “a machine gun.” The letter contains explanations of basic points for lawmakers–like the fact that a semiautomatic only shoots one round each time the trigger is pulled and bump stocks to not change this basic action. And it also seeks to defend the integrity of the ATF by explaining that the body of laws governing machine guns has been in place since 1934 and that body of...
  • Video: Antifa eats itself

    What’s the inevitable result of identity-based social-justice welfare? Ranking of race to stomp out racism, just like the end result of violent “anti-fascist” activism is inevitably fascism. A Twitter account called “Beverly Hills Antifa” (which exists to criticize and provoke Antifa) last night tweeted this video from a protest a month ago in Berkeley, showing an escalating argument between two Antifa activists over authenticity. The woman accuses the man of epitomizing “the height of white performativeness.” Only true violence and true DNA matter to The Cause, she instructs, as the young man tries to defend himself by providing a brief...

    Players around the NFL knelt, sat or even refused to come out of the locker room for the national anthem on Sunday in order to protest social inequality. Despite favorable media coverage, mainstream outlets forgot to mention one key factor: how much money those players actually make. Case in point, the seventeen players who protested the anthem before the Jaguars-Ravens game in London have contracts totaling more than $448 million. And that’s just from TWO OF THE TEAMS. More, from The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Robert Donachie: Combing the total value of each players contracts adds up to a whopping...
  • Graham-Cassidy gets stabbed in the back from both purists and swamp critters alike

    I'm a bit out of steam from my rants and phone blitzes during the last two attempts to repeal Obamacare. I am not a Lindsey Graham fan, but I must say I think his Graham-Cassidy bill is a very reasonable bill. For those of you who don't know, this bill merely takes the money for Obamacare subsidies and block grants it over to the states. Each state will be encouraged to design their own healthcare system. If they want Bernie-care in their state, they can go for it. But if they want more choices on the market, they can do...
  • Protesters Interrupt Comey’s Speech At Howard University [VIDEO]

    Former FBI Director James Comey’s keynote speech at Howard University was interrupted by protesters singing “We Shall Not Be Moved.” Comey was set to speak at Howard’s 2017-18 convocation as the school’s endowed chair of public policy, but he didn’t receive a warm welcome from some students at the historically black college. A group of students in the back of the auditorium stood up during Comey’s speech with their fists raised to indicate “black power.” The group sang the old spiritual song, “We Shall Not Be Moved” and broke out into chants about being black. “I said I love being...

    Saint Louis is engulfed in civil disobedience, marching and window breaking. Just three years after Michael Brown’s death by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, the city is once again the center of racial division in America. The details of the case did not affect the rioters. The facts of the 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, 24, does not matter to the participants of the civil unrest. I had a speaking engagement in the Saint Louis area the afternoon of the verdict. I knew there would be trouble and even warned my attendees to be careful going home. But...
  • Shock: CNN reporters don't understand Trump UN speech

    CNN reporters couldn't understand Trump's message to the U.N. I knew that their reporters were stupid, but how would any reporter not understand his message? I believe I know why it was incoherent to them: because somehow, they believed that Obama's lead-from-behind policy was good. Trump was incoherent only to people who believe that Obama, Kerry, and Hillary did anything to make the world safer. They did make sure that Russia, Iran and N Korea got Uranium. They did allow our diplomats to get killed while they blamed a video to protect their political power. They reneged on a commitment...

    The September 19th episode of American Horror Story: Cult took on such weighty issues as gun rights, racism, and cisnormative guinea pigs. The episode "Neighbors From Hell" picks up right where the last episode left off, with Ally (Sarah Paulson) having just accidentally shot and killed her wife's employee Pedro when he dropped by the house unexpectedly. In the aftermath, these weighty issues are debated in the town and in the household. Having just killed an innocent man on her front porch when she thinks she is being attacked, Ally believes she's going to be in big trouble with the...

    #Scarfoyle is back on. Unless of course they were never off. The weather may be cooling off as we barrel into fall, but things are heating up for former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and Fox News’s Kimberly Guilfoyle. The pair were spotted together in Rome last week at Celebrity Fight Night, which benefits The Andrea Bocelli Foundation and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center. Photographs were taken of them at the rooftop party on September 10. The Mirror viewed a video of the event in which #Scarfoyle sat together at the same table. They wore white as did everyone...

    The Detroit chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network plans to protest a string of concerts Kid Rock will give next week. Kid Rock will open the new $860 million Little Caesars Arena by playing six nights in a row starting next Tuesday. From NBC News: See Also: Bannon: Catholic bishops “need illegal aliens to fill the churches” The request to cancel Kid Rock’s concerts came from the National Action Network’s Detroit chapter, which plans a protest next week. The group has previously criticized Kid Rock for displaying the Confederate flag at concerts. “This is the straw that broke the...
  • Kaeper-Kicked: Cleveland Cops, EMTs Blow Off Kneelin’ Browns Opening Ceremony

    Apparently when you insult Cleveland cops and paramedics, and the symbols they revere, they’re not the types to say “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” So after a dozen Cleveland Browns players refused to stand for the National Anthem in a preseason game, Cleveland’s finest won’t be holding a huge Old Glory on the field at the Browns’ home opener, as they’d previously agreed to. Those Browns players, in an apparent effort to take the “lovable” out of “lovable losers,” (1 – 15 last season!) were emulating the currently unemployed Colin Kaepernick – he of the pig policeman socks...
  • MTV’s Gore Town Hall Proves It Should Stick to Music

    It wouldn’t be shocking for a television network known for programming gems like Jackass, Catfish, Teen Mom and The Real World, to lack perspective on serious matters — or to lack serious reporting. Both deficiencies were on full display during “An Inconvenient Special” on MTV, starring former vice president Al Gore promoting his new film which is essentially his own reality television show anyway. He prefers the term “cinema verite.” The Aug. 2, town hall special was also scheduled for re-broadcast that night on BET, and on VH1 on Aug. 4. MTV News correspondent Gaby Wilson hosted the event with...

    Pennsylvania Black Lives Matter protesters crashed a children’s event Monday to voice their anger over the police shooting of a black man. Activists interrupted a speech former Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell was giving to commemorate the 11th anniversary of a Philadelphia park’s founding, reports 6ABC. The protesters, angry over the fatal police shooting of David Jones, accused Rendell of having “blood on his hands” at the Franklin Square event. “And now you have the ultimate politician who is anti-black,” the activist said, turning towards Rendell. “There is nothing but blood on his hands.” North Philadelphia police officers shot Jones, a...
