  • Politico Skips Real Reason Woodward's 'Fear' Flopped in Washington

    Newsbusters ^ | September 19, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Journalist Jeff Greenfield, writing in the September 17 Politico magazine, somehow can't figure out the real reason "Why Woodward's 'Fear' Flopped in Washington." Greenfield makes a light attempt to find out the reason for the flop but seems to be unable to see the all too obvious.  So let us join Greenfield as he stumbles around while ignoring the very large elephant in the room whose stink is something that liberals don't want to dwell on, which is that Woodward couldn't find evidence of Trump-Russia collusion:
  • Woodward book breaks 93-year publishing record

    Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm...

    ThE Daily Caller ^ | Sept 10, 2018 | Peter Hasson
    Bob Woodward’s new book “Fear” presents a scathing depiction of President Donald Trump’s administration. Woodward has a muddy history with a trail of allegations that he embellished the truth or otherwise misled his readers. Media coverage of Woodward’s book has been largely positive and ignores Woodward’s controversial record.

    Associated Press ^ | Sep. 10, 2018 10:48 AM EDT
    Longtime journalist Bob Woodward said Monday that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “are not telling the truth” when they deny making disparaging statements about President Donald Trump attributed to them in his new book, “Fear.” Kelly is quoted calling Trump “an idiot,” and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of “a fifth or sixth-grader,” but they’ve said they didn’t make those statements. Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC’s “Today” show about their denials, said, “They are not telling the truth.” He said “these are political statements to protect their jobs.” The...

    Acts of sabotage against the president are perilous to the American system of government. They're also self-serving. The title of Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear, contains a multitude of meanings. For one thing, it describes the attitude of many of President Trump’s own aides toward his judgment. It’s not just that many sources were willing to tell Woodward damaging stories about Trump: The most stunning examples are those where top aides reportedly thwarted his will. Even more stunning is an anonymous op-ed published in The New York Times Wednesday afternoon written by a purported “senior official in the Trump administration.”...

    The book, Fear: Trump in the White House, will be available September 11, 2018, but it's already creating a stir. Do you plan to read it? You can check it out from your local library, or you can purchase it. The price is #18.00 at Amazon and $19.26 at Barnes and Noble. I'm not sure if I'll read it or not. I already have many books stacked up to read.

  • Business students more likely to have a brain parasite spread by cats

    New Scientist ^ | Jul 25, 2018 | By New Scientist staff and Press Association
    An analysis of students in the US has found that those who have a certain type of brain parasite are more likely to be majoring in business studies. Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite carried by cats. It can infect people through contact with cat faeces, poorly cooked meat, or contaminated water, and as many as one-third of the world’s population may be infected. The parasite doesn’t make us feel sick, but it forms cysts in the brain where it can remain for the rest of a person’s life. Some studies have linked infection with the parasite to slower reaction...

    The Organic Prepper ^ | May 14, 2018 | Daisy Luther
    As a prepper and avid reader of post-apocalyptic fiction like One Second After, Alas Babylon, and Going Home, an EMP has long been on my mind as one of the most catastrophic threats we could face. After reading numerous reports from the Congressional EMP Commission, I figured that the reality of such a threat was a given. So when I recently wrote about making Faraday cages, imagine my surprise when I saw this comment: I appreciate the attempt to help people prepare for all kinds of disasters, but I’m going to have to throw a conversational bomb into this room,...

    I hade a eureka moment. Actually, I had two. I work around a lot of liberals. Something I realized as I irritably worked around them was that they really care only about themselves, mostly. I began to think that this is the defining characteristic of liberals, that they lack empathy. It explains why they are so miserable and why they make others around them miserable. You have to lack empathy to kill babies, for instance. There can be no argument about that. You see the callousness in Mueller’s eyes, as well practically any liberal politician’s. You have to lack empathy...

    Thousands of women, many with small children to take care of, were jailed in Turkey in an unprecedented crackdown and subjected to torture and ill-treatment in detention centers and prisons as part of the government’s systematic campaign of intimidation and persecution of critics and opponents, a new report titled “Jailing Women In Turkey: Systematic Campaign of Persecution and Fear” released by Stockholm Center for Freedom (SCF) has revealed.The motivation behind Turkey’s deliberate policy of imprisoning women who, in some cases, have just delivered babies or are pregnant, appears to be creating a chill factor in Turkish society and muzzle dissenting and...

  • More than half of Americans are Afraid to Share Political Beliefs – Environment of Fear

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    A poll by the CATO Institute has shown that 57% of Americans are afraid (presumably of public reaction) to share their political beliefs. Is this because people have “repugnant beliefs,” or is it because a climate of fear and recrimination has been fostered by the political classes? The never-ending stream of hate and blame that is poured out on social media, and the complicit MSM who see a direct correlation between outrage and viewing figures, have jointly created an environment where a majority of people can only feel comfortable speaking openly to a select few “close-allies” in their lives. And...

    Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Larua Kiessling said, from the bench, she received many letters about the case expressing concern about the “current political climate” where President Trump has been “harshly critical of illegal immigration and of Mexico in particular,” the Capital Gazette reported. The judge said it is “reasonable to conclude” that the defendant, Martin Martinez-Ballinas, would flee the scene out of fear of being deported. “I’m not going to sentence based on the political environment,” Keissling told the courtroom. Maryland defense attorney Kush Arora told Breitbart Texas that Martinez-Ballinas’s fear does not matter as to guilt or...

    The idea that governments may want us to live in a perpetual state of fear is not an outlandish conspiracy theory. It is a calculated series of measures designed to justify the implementation of regressive laws that allow more power to be ceded to national governments and supranational organizations. The latest tool that is being used is “Islamophobia”. There are a number of pieces of legislation being put in place that seek to more harshly punish those that criticize aspects of Islam. Canada has introduced M-103, which only calls for looking at methods to counter anti-Islamic racism, but its true...
