  • Vanity - Have Any of You Heard any Screaming Today?

    I've been listening all day for the screams and wailing from the snowflakes, SJW's, and leftards in remembrance of the anniversary of the election of President Trump. The silence is deafening. Has anyone heard anything? Isn't this the day that was supposed to witness the gnashing of teeth, the tearing of hair, the rendering of flesh and screaming at the sky?
  • Republican Ed Gillespie: A Reagan conservative tries to appeal and prevail in the age of Trump

    When he was attending Catholic University of America, Ed Gillespie worked three jobs, one in a campus dining hall, one as a short-order cook and one parking cars at the U.S. Senate. Through the job as a parking lot attendant, Gillespie learned of an internship opportunity that led to a job on Capitol Hill, and he has not stopped working in politics and public affairs since. Gillespie, communications ace, former lobbyist and senior aide to President George W. Bush, will find out Tuesday if Virginia voters will send a Reagan conservative to the Virginia governor’s mansion in the era of...
  • There is nothing normal about the Fusion GPS dossier

    The Hill ^ | 11/5/17 | Ned Ryun
    As if on cue, the work has begun to rehabilitate Fusion GPS’s image and normalize its dossier and its behavior. Axios wrote that this is all really normal, and that Glenn Simpson and others at Fusion GPS, many of whom are former senior Wall Street Journal reporters and editors, are just good old regular gumshoe ink-stained, unhappy people trying to make a living. Last week, Hillary Clinton went on the Daily Show to “explain” that it really was just opposition research. To be clear, there is neither anything normal about Fusion GPS dossier nor the way the firm goes about...

    YORK, Pa.—Are you OK? Where are you? Barbara Estep kept texting her daughter, Nylaya Way, who was not responding. Donald Trump had stunned the nation by winning the presidency the night before, and now frightening things were happening at Nylaya’s vocational high school, York County School of Technology. Racial tensions had been building in the school’s corridors, cafeteria, and parking lot throughout the historically divisive campaign. Then, hours after Trump claimed victory in the election, they boiled over as a group of white students held aloft Trump campaign signs and chanted in a hallway, “White power!’’ A brief video clip...

    They never ever counted on the one entity for which neither media hacks nor pollsters have any respect: the American public! ”...The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” Joseph Stalin, 1923 On Tuesday, American voters will once again go to the polls hoping that the candidate(s) they vote for will fulfill what should be their one and only mission, i.e., to serve the needs of We the People. Republican, ahem, leaders are appropriately nervous that the phony so-called conservatives they’ve been foisting on us for decades will be replaced by authentic...

    The British Broadcasting Corporation ^ | November 4, 2017 | Anthony Zurcher, North American Reporter
    Just over a year ago, the political left in the US watched in shock as what seemed unimaginable happened - Donald Trump won the presidency. Since then, they've mourned, they've marched, and they've moved on. Sort of. There was a moment on the first full day of the Women's Convention in Detroit, Michigan, last month when the audience came alive. Linda Sarsour, a co-chair of the event, was moderating a panel about activism in the era of Trump, and glanced down at her phone. She then announced to the cavernous conference hall that there were reports that independent counsel Robert...
  • Both Bush Presidents Lash Out At Trump, GHW Confirms He Voted For Hillary

    The fading Republican establishment remains unable to reconcile its ongoing collapse, and continues to scapegoat Donald Trump for all the GOP’s troubles instead of looking in the mirror. Two weeks after an outraged George W. Bush lashed out at Trump, accusing him of emboldening “bigotry and white supremacy“, on Saturday we learn just how deep the animosity toward Trump runs within the extended Bush household. In a new book to be released this month from historian Mark Updegrove, titled “The Last Republicans“, and previewed on Saturday by the NYT and CNN, former President George H.W. Bush said he considers Trump...

    Newz Sentinel ^ | 11-4-2017
    Perhaps the most shocking revelation contained in the excerpts from former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s book was, unsurprisingly, buried in a Washington Post overview of the various allegations (and frankly, we’re surprised the Post, given its status as a protector of the Washington establishment, deigned to publish it). In the aftermath of Wikileaks’ decision to publish a cache of emails stolen from the DNC’s servers, Donna Brazile says she became increasingly paranoid about both possible Russian efforts to sway the election. Surprisingly, she says top Democrats initially instructed her not to discuss her concerns with others. But even more than...

    “Democratic brand still suffering despite GOP woes,” by Campaign Pro’s Elena Schneider: “Democrats, fuming with anger at President Donald Trump and the GOP, boil down the current political fight as one of good versus bad. There’s just one problem: Many voters see it as bad versus worse. Approval of the Republican Party is at historic lows, with 62 percent of Americans expressing a negative opinion of the GOP in a September CNN poll. But voters’ views of the Democratic Party are not rising as Republicans sink, and in some polling, the Democrats have continued to slip, threatening their opportunity to...

    The Hill ^ | Nvember 3, 2017 | Joe Concha
    The broadcast evening newscasts on three major networks on Thursday didn't mention bombshell revelations by former Democratic National Committee interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile. Brazile has written in a new book that she discovered evidence that she said showed Hillary Clinton’s campaign "rigged" the Democratic presidential primary. "ABC's World News Tonight," "NBC Nightly News" and "CBS Evening News" all didn't report the allegations by Brazile on Thursday evening despite it receiving considerable coverage on cable news and in print and online media. Brazile was also trending as one of Twitter's top topics on Thursday. In excerpts released to Politico Thursday, Brazile...

    PJ Media ^ | 11/2/2017 | Megan Fox
    An organization called Refuse Fascism has more far-left protests planned all over the country to commemorate the election of Donald Trump and the electoral upset on November 4. This could spin out of control quickly. "Regime change," as they call it, is the goal, yet they claim they are not trying to overthrow the government or disenfranchise millions of voters who voted for Donald Trump. The idea is to take to the streets until Trump and Pence resign. Seriously. Refuse Fascism claims their protests will be nonviolent. But domestic terror groups Antifa and Black Bloc, may have other plans. Ivan...

    RUSH: We have the Donna Brazile book, the excerpt of a new Donna Brazile book that Politico published, and this is stunning. She literally throws Hillary Clinton, Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz, and Barack Obama, all three under the bus, as having separately and together destroyed the Democrat Party. Obama, Hillary, and Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz. She sets herself up as the grand savior of the Democrat Party. And I asked myself when I was reading the excerpt, which of course I will share with you and my unique thoughts on this as the program unfolds, why is she doing this? And I...

    The Washington Times ^ | 11/1/17 | Seth McLaughlin
    This week’s terrorist attack in New York City — carried out by an immigrant who won his spot in the U.S. through a lottery — has pushed the Virginia governor’s race onto turf claimed by Republican Ed Gillespie, who has made immigration and public safety cornerstones of his campaign. One group of Mr. Gillespie’s opponents, the Latino Victory Fund, already has pulled down an attack ad showing a truck with a Gillespie bumper sticker stalking children on a sidewalk — eerily similar to Tuesday’s attack in which a man mowed down people on a bike path in New York. For...

    A rally in support of a replacement option for a stretch of Interstate 81 served as a platform for city mayoral candidates and local politicians to rail against New York state officials Tuesday. The rally, held in Hanover Square, was organized by ReThink81, a local group that supports a $1.3 billion replacement option for the “viaduct,” a raised section of I-81 that bisects Syracuse. At one point during the event, Common Council President Van Robinson hefted a sledgehammer into the air, saying he wanted to tear down the highway: “I hated it from the first time I came to this...

    Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call. I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or...

    msn.com ^ | Oct 30, 2017 | Luke Rosiak
    Luke Rosiak Rep. Keith Ellison, deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, said he was unaware of the DNC’s role in funding the Trump dossier, repeating claims from former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and sources close to Hillary Clinton. The denial is reminiscent of Ellison’s claims to have not heard of Democratic IT aide Imran Awan, despite being repeatedly informed of the major investigation involving him. In both the Awan and dossier affairs, Democratic leaders have said they did not have knowledge of major events that greatly concern them. Investigators contend that Imran Awan and his family members made...

    RUSH: In leading into all of this today, I want to focus on what the media is focusing on. The media is slowly and reluctantly — not all of them — but slowly and reluctantly realizing that the indictment of Manafort doesn’t even get them close to where they want to be, and certainly it doesn’t get them close to where they thought they would be on Friday when it was leaked that there had been sealed indictments. Over the weekend they all had convinced themselves that whatever this indictment, ’cause prosecutors come out with the big gun first. And...

    BURLINGTON, W. Va. — It’s two o’clock in the afternoon on a sunny Saturday in late September, and I’m standing in a grassy field with Dale, a white man in his late 70s. I’m at the Apple Harvest Festival in Burlington, W. Va. To our left, a vendor is hawking T-shirts with images of Confederate flags and high-powered weapons printed on them. “Ban idiots not guns,” one shirt declares. In the background are the acoustic strums and picks of fiddles, banjos and mandolins. But my attention is fixed on Dale, who’s holding forth on the virtues of Donald Trump. “I’ll...

    After months of getting themselves worked up about hearings featuring a hero once accused of rigging the election for Donald Trump and Don Jr.'s inability to sniff out Nigerian prince emails, spectators of the Russia game have finally gotten what they wanted: indictments. Unfortunately, the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Richard Gates have nothing whatever to do with "collusion," however broadly defined. Politically speaking, we have learned nothing except what we already knew: namely, that a shady businessman who briefly worked for the Trump campaign is, in fact, a very shady businessman indeed,...

    [SNIP] Joseph Mifsud, a former Maltese official who co-directs the London Academy of Diplomacy at the University of Stirling, was identified in media reports after details in the documents pointed to his attendance at a conference in Russia last year. He told the Daily Telegraph Tuesday that he is the professor in the documents, but said that the acquaintance in Moscow with government connections who he introduced Papadopoulos to was only an academic. Mifsud also told the paper that he did not know anything about Russian “dirt” on Clinton, and said that he was upset by the “incredible” claims. He...
