  • Emmanuel Macron, France’s Manchurian Candidate

    Emmanuel Macron is “the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being France has ever known.” Emmanuel Macron is a globalist stooge. Emmanuel Macron is a paid lackey of Brussels. Emmanuel Macron is the establishment’s water boy. Emmanuel Macron is France’s Manchurian Candidate. Yesterday, the French people chose globalist backed, former investment banker, Emmanuel Macron from the party, En Marche and Marine Le Pen, the populist female leader of the National Front to advance to the final election on May 7th. Macron garnered 24.01% of the vote and Le Pen, 21.30%. The French voters jettisoned long time favorites; conservative Francois Fillon...

    I grudgingly admire this dude’s willingness to go all-in on his position after having been scolded last week by half the lawyers on the Internet. If you’re out to censor your political opponents on “hate speech” grounds, you can’t let some clucking by First Amendment experts frighten you. He mentions three cases that supposedly make Ann Coulter’s right to speak at Berkeley a “close call” which ultimately can be infringed on “safety” grounds or whatever. One is the Chaplinsky decision from 1942, in which the Supreme Court held that “fighting words” can be banned because they’re likely to lead to...
  • Obama’s Hidden Iran Deal Giveaway

    When President Barack Obama announced the “one-time gesture” of releasing Iranian-born prisoners who “were not charged with terrorism or any violent offenses” last year, his administration presented the move as a modest trade-off for the greater good of the Iran nuclear agreement and Tehran’s pledge to free five Americans. “Iran had a significantly higher number of individuals, of course, at the beginning of this negotiation that they would have liked to have seen released,” one senior Obama administration official told reporters in a background briefing arranged by the White House, adding that “we were able to winnow that down to...
  • We’re Still Losing the War. And Here’s Why

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    No matter what Donald Trump achieves as President, and no matter what the outcomes of the Brexit negotiations, we’re still losing the information war. And unless this is won, all advancements can be simply undone or worked around by the next administration. Each victory that Trump wins, whether it’s the deportation of criminal migrants, the revamping (or removal) of Obamacare, it can all be taken away when the next agenda-driven candidate comes to power. It would be nice to think that the sclerotic rot of the CNC will never rise again, but it will. And when it does, the first...
  • How Trump Could Make Your Drugs Cheaper ... If He Dares

    OZY ^ | April 21, 2017 | Daniel Malloy, The Daily Dose
    For the more than 3 million Americans infected with potentially deadly hepatitis C, a relatively new cocktail of drugs is considered a miracle cure. The problem: Gilead Sciences’ list price is $84,000 for a 12-week treatment. From Martin Shkreli’s Turing Pharmaceuticals jacking up the AIDS drug Daraprim from $13.50 per pill to $750 in a single day to Mylan’s allergy-fighting EpiPens rising from $100 to $600 in just a few years, Americans are getting sick of astonishing drug prices. It’s why Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both used their presidential campaigns to roast Big Pharma. In a primary-season rally in...

    The Washington Post ^ | April 24, 2017 | Joel Achenbach
    What we are reporting here isn't fake news. But it doesn't feel exactly like real news, either. It's in that foggy realm of Trump news in which everything is slightly ambiguous and wobbly and internally inconsistent and almost certainly improvisational and not actually grounded in what you could call “government policy.” What happened was: Trump called the International Space Station and talked to astronauts and, in passing, mentioned that he's going to send Americans to Mars, and soon, like really lickety-split. Trump was marking the historic achievement of astronaut Peggy Whitson, the commander of the International Space Station, who set...

    The Daily Caller ^ | April 21, 2017 | Justin Caruso
    Jesse Arreguin, mayor of Berkeley, California, has been revealed to be involved with a violent, far-left group known as “BAMN,” meaning “By Any Means Necessary.” Indeed, Arreguin’s Facebook page shows him belonging to BAMN, according to The Gateway Pundit. The group formally describes itself on Facebook as “The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).” BAMN is not just any “liberal” or “leftist” group. It is a group whose members have engaged in violence, and is affiliated with the violent antifascist, or antifa, movement. BAMN has been involved in...

    It appears that Russia is leading the way towards a much-needed rejection of "religious freedom" in the West: Source from NRO: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/446966/russia-jehovahs-witnesses-ban-continues-putin-religious-persecution Russia’s crackdown on religious activity took a major step forward this week as the Justice Ministry banned Jehovah’s Witnesses. Russia has steadily curtailed rights to evangelize in recent years, but this move signals their commitment to aggressively policing private religious activity. The Russian supreme court ruled that Jehovah’s Witnesses amount to an “extremist group,” and therefore the government is shutting down their headquarters and local chapters, seizing their property, and banning them from meeting. Vladimir Putin’s campaign...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/24/17 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
    Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through...

    The Trump Presidency has turned out to be surprisingly challenging for blogging. First off, we have the media's raw hatred for President Trump leading them to Dan Rather too many stories (howl first, verify later) - anyone remember the National Guard being mobilized to round up illegals, plans to invade Mexico, the MLK bust being removed from the White House, or just this week, the New England Patriots' visit to the White House?So when there's a story that looks too good or too stupid to believe, I generally wait 48 hours for the truth to come out. Unfortunately, the Radical...
  • President Trump Speaks The Words We Long To Hear: “MASSIVE TAX CUTS!”

    IWBI ^ | Pamela Williams
    In an interview with the Associated Press on Friday, President Trump said his tax reform package would be unveiled “Wednesday or shortly thereafter” and it will include a “massive tax cut.” He went on to say it will be “bigger than, I believe, any tax cut ever.” Surely, if this is the case Trump’s popularity would sky rocket. It would be a great move to come before hi 100th day in office, which will be April 29. However, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had set a goal of passing tax reform by August, but unfortunately the deadline was delayed due to...

    You're not. But here's how you could become one if you really wanted to Sigh. We dealt with this back in December, but Nicholas Kristof is not giving up. I think he’s obsessed. Obsessed with what? Well that’s the truly bizarre thing. Liberal New York Times columnist Kristof (but I repeat myself) seems obsessed with Christianity, and wanting to be a part of it. Now normally you’d think, great! Someone wants to become a Christian! Wonderful.

    Rumblings Last week, Kim Jong Un threatened to annihilate parts of the United States in what Pyongyang termed “a super-mighty pre-emptive strike.” Then we got a slew of reports indicating that a U.S. citizen had been detained by the North Korean government. Then, over the weekend, the Norks released a statement indicating they were preparing to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier conducting maneuvers in the region. Now, as tensions rise, everyone is waiting for the United States response. So far, we’ve heard nothing concrete.

    Yuuuuuge Most of the media coverage, like this from CNBC, follows the current dopey trend of obsessing over how quickly the proposal will be done. Wednesday? Thursday? The following week? Maybe this is all about the spine-tingling drama of whether it will happen within Trump’s first 100 days, since all of America waits with bated breath for the answer to that question. Er, yeah . . . But when it happens is not the point at all. It’s what the plan consists of, and while Trump isn’t dropping many details, he’s certainly not being shy about establishing expectations:

    We all live in an increasingly toxic world Do you remember the line in the musical “Showboat”, the one that says, “It’s summertime and the living is easy”? Maybe it is for some people. But the worst summer I ever endured was during World War II. We all had to contribute to the war effort and my job was to pick peaches on a farm. But for years I had suffered from Hay Fever! Peaches and their fuzz were a Perfect Storm! Could I have avoided this allergy today? It’s estimated that 40 million North Americans now suffer from mild...

    Sorry, liberals. You didn't want God, remember? Are you like me? Are you completely baffled by the effort to turn Chelsea Clinton into the next big political “thing?” I’m not sure who’s behind it, and I’m really not sure why they think it’s a good idea, but that seems to be the left’s goal lately. Someone, somewhere, has decided that Democrats need a third bit at the increasingly-wormy Clinton apple. To that end, the media is presenting the accomplishment-free banality of Chelsea Clinton as the progressives’ great white hope. Just look at this Variety cover:

    schisms, not only in the state GOP but also among the various factions of activists – social conservative, citizen activist, party loyal, libertarians The special election for Georgia’s 6th District seat vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has been described ad nauseam as a referendum on President Trump’s first weeks in office. It was indeed a referendum, but not one about Trump: the referendum was about the failure of the Georgia GOP to do its job.

    An immediate retraction, correction and apology must be made by the UN Secretariat An official United Nations document published by the Division for Palestinian Rights of the United Nations Secretariat contains a deliberately altered record of a 1922 parliamentary House of Lords debate on the Balfour Declaration. The Balfour Declaration—dated 2 November 1917 - called for the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people—it being clearly understood that nothing would be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in...

    Even though they contained “some very positive info,” President Donald Trump on Monday decried a set of polls released over the weekend as “fake news” conducted by media outlets whose polling about last year’s presidential election had proven incorrect. “The two fake news polls released yesterday, ABC & NBC, while containing some very positive info, were totally wrong in General E. Watch!” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday morning.
