  • Roy Moore Gets the Herman Cain Treatment

    It was déjŕ vu all over again as the Washington Post, who has endorsed his opponent in the Alabama Senate race, brought forth 40-year-old sexual molestation accusations against Judge Roy Moore. From Clarence Thomas, to the Duke lacrosse team, to the University of Virginia rape case, to Herman Cain, we have heard such charges before and the rush to judgment that follows. Moore’s accusers issue the boilerplate caveat that if the charges are true, he should exit the public stage immediately in shame and certainly that is true. Then they quickly throw him under the guilty-as-charged bus that just ran...
  • The Human Stain: Why the Harvey Weinstein Story Is Much Worse Than You Think (NYC/Hollywierd swamp)

    Hollywood is full of Weinsteins, men whose erotic imaginations are fueled primarily by humiliation, who glut their sensibilities with the most exquisite refinements of shame. A journalist once told me about visiting another very famous Hollywood producer—you’d know the name—who exhibited for my friend his collection of photographs of famous female actresses—you’d know their names, too—performing sexual acts for his private viewing. As with Weinstein, this man’s chief thrill was humiliation, and the more famous the target the more roundly it was savored: Even her, a big star—these people will do anything to land a role; they’re so awful, they’ll...

    “Liberal, socialist elitists” are running the National Football League (NFL), ten-year NFL veteran Burgess Owens tells CNSNews.com. Interviewed by CNSNews.com on the Conservative Commados Radio Show, Owens, who won a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders in 1980, was asked how he thought Pete Rozelle, the NFL commissioner during his playing days, would have reacted if players had protested the National Anthem at games. Owens said that players were held to higher standards then, as the league was still in the process of branding itself as an “All-American” product:That was a time in which the NFL was being built. They...

    You and I, meaning Normal People, we look at our Thought Leaders, our Media and Cultural Overlords, our Ruling Class, and oftentimes wonder how they can be so venal and dishonest in pursuit of what they want — and what they want most of all is control over the lives of us Normal People, those of us who do not want to control anyone. We just want to be left alone. How many times have we asked, How do they live with themselves? All the lies they tell, the innocent people they destroy, the fake news they publish, the character...

    Matt Wuerker, the leftwing editorial cartoonist for the leftwingPolitico, was met with almost universal condemnation Wednesday for a ‘toon that not only mocked the victims of Hurricane Harvey, but mocked the victims in most desperate need, those requiring rescue from rooftops. Utilizing that form of bigotry and hate that will always be acceptable among the Beautiful People, Wuerker managed to lump all Texans into a single GodTardingRacistSecessionist. Ugly, ugly stuff.

    In a series of videos constituting a campaign for truth, the NRA is making clear it is out to expose the violent tendencies of liberal elitists and to defeat those elitists at the ballot box and in the public arena of ideas. The pivot toward elites represents a marked shift in the NRA’s Second Amendment strategy, as it means they have moved from simply fighting anti-gun legislation to fighting the talking heads, the academicians, and the wealthy, erudite leftists who pump ideas into legions of gullible anti-gunners. So the NRA warns that liberal elitists are prone to actual violence and...

    Yeah, we’re a republic, but we also have democratic rules, norms, and traditions. Too bad the Democratic Party doesn’t believe in them.Case in point – their bizarre embrace of illegal aliens. Democrats seem to think that foreigners who violate our laws have a greater right to determine what will be America's laws than actual Americans. After all, that's their argument when they whine because some illegal is getting shipped back to his Third World hellhole-of-origin. They seem to think that just because some uninvited, unwanted, unlegal trespasser (we’re not supposed to call them “illegal,” right?) has been violating our laws...
  • Mike Pence: Trump Could Rescind Congressional Exemption From ObamaCare

    Video included. In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News that was aired on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence was asked to reflect on President Trump perspective on the so-far failed efforts on the part of the Senate to produce a suitable health care reform bill. When Carlson asked Pence, “Why should Members of Congress and their staffs have a better deal, not subject to the same rules as everybody else is?,” the Vice President answered: “That’s pretty typical of Washington, isn’t it? You, more often than not, see one set of rules for the American people and another...
  • Help! My 3-Year-Old Is Obsessed With Trump

    07/24/2017 6:07:07 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 41 replies
    My 3-year-old daughter is obsessed with Donald Trump. This is a problem if 1) you live in New York City, 2) you are liberal, 3) your friends are liberal, 4) your daughter attends a liberal school and 5) your relatives are affected by the Trump administration’s travel ban. Yassi, my daughter, attends the kind of school that made counseling available in the wake of the 2016 presidential elections. Parents stood together comforting one another on Nov. 9 in an act of collective mourning that I hadn’t seen since Sept. 11. This is probably exactly the type of school that the...

    A glimpse into the divide between mass and elite in American society. Bruce Thornton is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. When I was a kid, an outfit called Big Time Wrestling would come to town. The favorite rivalry was between stage gringo Ray Stevens and the chivalric Pepper Gomez. Fierce disputes over which champion was better would break out on the playground after a bout. Then one day an older Mexican kid shattered our illusions by informing us that he had seen Stevens and Gomez laughing together over dinner in Chinatown. Welcome to American politics,...

    President Trump Grabs Marine's Hat After Wind Blows It Away CBS New York “It’s hard to be an elitist once you’ve met the elites.” That was CBS News’ Will Rahn’s take on last week’s Aspen Ideas Festival, where wealthy, liberal elites on the mean streets … er, slopes of Colorado discussed just how tough their lives have become. From Donald Trump’s White House to the capitals of Europe, elitism is out of favor and the Acela Corridor class is as annoyed as John Kerry waiting for a table at a crowded Martha’s Vineyard restaurant. I’m kidding, of course. John Kerry...

    If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo (白左), or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates. So what does ‘white left’ mean in the Chinese context, and what’s behind the rise of its (negative) popularity? It might not be an easy task to define the term, for as a social media buzzword and very...

    The American Conservative ^ | May 18,2017 | Robert W. Merry
    Thus is the Trump crisis now superimposed upon the much broader and deeper crisis of the elites, which spawned the Trump crisis in the first place. Yes, Trump is a disaster as president. He lacks nearly all the qualities and attributes a president should have, and three and a half more years of him raises the specter of more and more unnecessary tumult and deepening civic rancor. It could even prove to be untenable governmentally. But trying to get rid of him before his term expires, absent a clear constitutional justification and a clear assent from the collective electorate, will...

    Republican legislators want to keep popular Obamacare provisions for themselves and their staff. House Republicans appear to have included a provision that exempts Members of Congress and their staff from their latest health care plan. The new Republican amendment, introduced Tuesday night, would allow states to waive out of Obamacare’s ban on pre-existing conditions. This means that insurers could once again, under certain circumstances, charge sick people higher premiums than healthy people. Republican legislators liked this policy well enough to offer it in a new amendment. They do not, however, seem to like it enough to have it apply to...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Washington Post columnist George Will discussed his departure from the Republican Party and the decision by Fox News not to renew his contract as a network contributor. Will suggested some of it was attributable to his refusal to support event President Donald Trump while he was a candidate. But later in that segment, he predicted some Republicans would change their opinions on Trump once he starts putting his policies forward.

    Clooney, 55 - who is expecting twins with his wife Amal - referenced Trump's comments about Meryl Streep, after the actress hit out at the politician during her Golden Globes speech last month. The actor said, when quizzed on French TV show Rencontres de Cinema: “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side said, ‘well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking’. "Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television. He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist." Clooney also added of the president's assistant: “Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director....

    A group of Republican senior statesmen is pushing for a carbon tax to combat the effects of climate change, and hoping to sell their plan to the White House. Former Secretary of State Jim Baker is leading the effort, which also includes former Secretary of State George Shultz. In an opinion piece published Tuesday night in The Wall Street Journal, they argued “there is mounting evidence of problems with the atmosphere that are growing too compelling to ignore.” […] Carbon taxes are designed to raise the cost of fossil fuels to bring down consumption. Baker and Shultz detailed in the...

    DAVOS, Switzerland - The global economy is in better shape than it's been in years. Stock markets are booming, oil prices are on the rise again and the risks of a rapid economic slowdown in China, a major source of concern a year ago, have eased. And yet, as political leaders, CEOs and top bankers make their annual trek up the Swiss Alps to the World Economic Forum in Davos, the mood is anything but celebratory.
