  • Trump Tells Sarah Sanders “Don’t Bother” With Press Briefings

    The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends) Just a week into his presidency, I briefly advocated in this space that President Trump should cancel the idiotic, 45 year-old tradition of holding daily press briefings at the White House. In May of 2017, I penned a longer piece on the subject that can be read at this link: Kill the White House Press Briefings Now. For those too lazy or time-constrained to read the whole thing, here is part of what I said in that piece: “The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided...

    President Trump said Tuesday that he told White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to stop giving daily press briefings due to dishonest and hostile reporting. "The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the 'podium' much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press," Trump tweeted. "I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!" The tweet followed White House spokesman Hogan Gidley's Tuesday morning appearance on Fox News, during which Gidley avoided giving a direct...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold. Just one week into her congressional tenure, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ruffling feathers within her own party — which is now mounting a behind-the-scenes effort to rein in the social media star. The Bronx-born Democratic socialist has racked up a bevy of complaints from her colleagues, including incumbents who aren’t pleased that she is backing a campaign to mount primary challenges against moderate Democrats,...

    On Jan. 3 2019, current House Speaker Paul Ryan gets to retire at the ripe old age of 48, but don't worry, as an entrenched Washington D.C. politician, we won't be done with him at that point. He has many years of lobbying for six or seven figure salaries ahead of him until he is inevitably recycled by the GOP establishment to do what he does best: undermine and sabotage the 'America First' agenda of President Donald Trump. Ryan has done such a poor job that it has become impossible for even the paid sycophants of Conservative Inc. to whitewash...

    President Donald Trump reportedly plans to stop financial aid to millions of Americans in Puerto Rico still dealing with the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria. The president believes, without evidence, that the Puerto Rican government is using the disaster relief funds to pay off debt rather than help its citizens rebuild, according to Axios. The island nation is still rebuilding after Maria’s destruction more than a year ago; most of the country waited almost 11 months for power to be restored and thousands of people are still displaced after their homes were destroyed. Trump was initially reluctant to send money...

    Hillary Clinton urged Americans to vote in Tuesday’s election to put a check on President Trump, to whom she lost in the 2016 election. Clinton painted the 2018 midterms as a vote to save the country, as well as against “radicalism, bigotry, and corruption.” “For the past two years, we’ve watched this administration attack and undermine our democratic institutions and values. Today, we say enough,” she tweeted.

That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes," he wrote. Davidson's segment, which he introduced as a look at "gross" candidates during this election, focused primarily on Republicans.

    As the fight against ISIS winds down, SyriaÂ’s minorities once again have to choose sides in the struggle for their countryÂ’s future. Syriac Christians, also known as Assyrians or Chaldeans, are one of the smallest ethnic and religious groups in Syria. But they have an important role to play in the US presence in Syria, and by extension, the politics of the entire Middle East. The Realist Review called Syriac National Council (SNC) founder Bassam Ishak to hear his perspective on US forces and the future of Syria.Before the interview, Ishak humbly warned the Realist Review that his perspective would...

    No one benefits from her latest venture back onto the political scene. We’re three weeks out from the 2018 midterm election, and Hillary Clinton is popping up again like a Halloween ghoul who keeps rising from the grave to terrorize the American public; only this time accompanied by the increasingly #MeToo burdened uber-villain, Bubba. The Clintons, it seems, can’t seem to call it quits, even if it means leaving members of their own party cringing and many more voters ready to “headdesk” themselves into a coma. This time, it’s happening courtesy of a pay-through-the-nose-to-see-them rehab tour. Because if there’s one...

    Former senior adviser to the Clintons, Mark Penn, said on “Fox & Friends” Friday that Bill and Hillary should withdraw from the public eye and start donating their speaking fees to charity. Penn said it was detrimental to the Democratic party to have the Clintons front and center, especially with the midterms less than a month away. (RELATED: Former Hillary Clinton Adviser Points Out Double Standard In Mueller Investigation) “At the moment, having the Clintons do a roadshow isn’t the best thing for the party that needs to move forward,” Penn said. “But I don’t really understand why this wouldn’t...

    For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now. All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to...

    A Facebook engineer announced his resignation Wednesday, decrying the company culture as one that operates on groupthink, uses appeasement as a PR strategy, and attacks conservative views. “I’m leaving because I’m burnt out on Facebook, our strategy, our culture, and our product,” Brian Amerige wrote in an internal message to company employees, adding that Facebook’s PR strategy is “appeasement — not morally earned pride and self-defense,” according to Business Insider. “I care too deeply about our role in supporting free expression and intellectual diversity to even whole-heartedly attempt the product stuff anymore, and that’s how I know it’s time to go,”...

    A defiant Brett Kavanaugh tells the Senate Judiciary Committee he will not allow the ongoing smears from Democratic sources to intimidate him into withdrawing his Supreme Court nomination. Good for him. Especially when the latest onslaught against him from Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer in The New Yorker adds up to a whole lot of nothing. By Farrow-Mayer’s own account, accuser Deborah Ramirez couldn’t be certain that Kavanaugh was responsible, and every one of her “corroborating” witnesses disputes her account. Just as all the people named by Christine Blasey Ford as having been at the high-school party where she recalls...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Monday that the Senate will hold an up-or-down vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, amid a committee investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against the nominee. "I want to make it perfectly clear ... Judge Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor. Up or down on the Senate floor. This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote in the Senate in the near future," McConnell said from the Senate floor on Monday. He declined, after his floor speech, to say if Republicans would try to vote...

    Former President Barack Obama has not aged well, and the left seems to be in denial despite the evidence staring them in the face. This isn’t meant as a slight against Obama personally, although the once-powerful man is increasingly grey and tired-looking these days. That can be overlooked since few presidents hold their youth after the stresses of the office. The part of the 44th president that has aged the worst is actually his star power. Just 10 years ago, supporters literally wept when Obama took the stage, and famous campaign posters promising “HOPE” and “CHANGE” seemed to be everywhere....

Emanuel made the announcement at a City Hall press conference that he will not seek reelection at the end of his term. The mayoral election will take place on Feb. 26, 2019. "Today, the time has come to make another tough choice. As much as I love this job, and will always love this city and its residents, I've decided not to seek reelection," he said.

Wait, what? How did that happen, you ask? In the end, the Fainting Felon was done in by an entity she literally owned throughout 2016: The Democrat National Committee. Yes, friends, that would be the very same DNC which conspired with the Clinton campaign throughout 2015 and...
