    Truth Revolt ^ | 7/31/2015 | Caleb Howe
    Josh Earnest continues to make it clear this week that not only has he not watched the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood, but that in fact he is taking Planned Parenthood's word for it that they reveal noting and are simply fraudulent. In the Digitas video above, you can see clips from both Friday's and Thursdays briefings where Earnest plainly admits the White House is using the organization's talking points. Apparently the alleged criminal sale of baby body parts does not rise to the level of "merits our attention" at Obama's White House. That wasn't the only thing that...

    DES MOINES, Iowa —Donald Trump wants to offer free helicopter rides to children at the Iowa State Fair, reports The Daily Mail newspaper. Trump told the British newspaper on Wednesday that "he's asked the Iowa State Fair for permission to set up the thrill ride at his own risk and expense." The riders would board his $7 million, 12-seat Sikorsky S-76 helicopter that is the one in the opening credits of "Celebrity Apprentice."

    GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump disputed claims from a female lawyer who said he called her "disgusting" when she asked to take a break to breast-pump during a 2011 deposition. Elizabeth Beck told CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday that Trump had "an absolute meltdown" when she requested a break to pump breast milk for her 3-month-old child.

    Over in Williamson County, Tennessee — just north of my home — prosecutors actually filed a motion asking the court to order a defense attorney to stop calling them “the government” in open court. Yes, that’s right — in my home state, it’s apparently now a slur to call the government by its name. In its motion, prosecutors claimed: “The State has noticed in the past few years that it has become commonplace during trials for attorneys for defendants, and especially Mr. Justice, to refer to State’s attorneys as ‘the Government,’ ” [prosecutors wrote.] “The State believes that such a...

    I always knew "The Simpsons" was a show ahead of its time. But, not even I remembered that the show had predicted the idea of President Donald Trump way back in 2000. The Simpsons predicted President Trump in 2000 That scene, as loyal Simpsons fans like myself remember, comes from an episode called "Bart to the Future" in which the show jumps ahead 30 years (to 2030) and imagines what each of the main characters will be doing. Lisa Simpson has just been elected president, following Trump's tenure in office.

This ultimately fuels the economic strength of the United States that makes it possible to defend our nation and its people. It’s about Smoot-Hawley.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton's standing is falling among Democrats, and voters view her as less decisive and inspiring than when she launched her presidential campaign just three months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. The survey offers a series of warning signs for the leading Democratic candidate. Most troubling, perhaps, for her prospects are questions about her compassion for average Americans, a quality that fueled President Barack Obama's two White House victories. Just 39 percent of all Americans have a favorable view of Clinton, compared to nearly half who say they have a negative opinion...

Non-verbal communication is important too. The infamous video of Varoufakis ‘flipping his middle finger’ to Germany, which caused uproar in German media, may or may not have been faked by a German satirical TV show. In the end it doesn’t really matter. He may have an...

"This isn't good for my brand, I think it's bad for my brand," Trump said. "Maybe I'm leading in polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers, I lose people." Still, Trump maintained that his businesses are "very strong," and haven't been too hurt by the bad publicity yet.
