    1) Liberals: Conservatives are so paranoid! No one wants to take your guns.Also liberals: Repeal the 2nd Amendment! No one needs AR-15s! Gun owners are murderers and terrorists!2) Liberals: College kids need to be protected from hurtful words with safe spaces because they’re so fragile and the poor dears need to be able to stay on their parents’ insurance until 26!Also liberals: 16 year-olds should be able to vote! 3) Liberals: You can’t criticize Islam! We must be respectful to all religions!Also liberals: Of course, there’s nothing wrong with using your tax dollars to build a life-size nativity scene made out of pig...

    Tucker Carlson Show 4/12/18 - Guest Dem. Con. Sean Patrick Maloney NY. Tucker asked Sean about Mueller’s expansive investigation and the FBI tactics in the Cohen raid. Of course Sean was fine with all of it. So Tucker asked if he was ok with Congress being investigated as thoroughly as Trump has been with an unlimited budget and no guidelines. Ummmmm........uh.......no, no that should never happen. Goose Gander...I’m all for it. How can we make this happen?
  • The Hypocrisy of Those Accusing White Evangelicals of Hypocrisy

    Since President Trump was elected in 2016 with the help of white evangelicals, we have been told that in voting for him, we compromised our ethics and can no longer be taken seriously. The latest alleged evidence for this is found in reports that black evangelicals are leaving white evangelical churches because of the latter's support of Trump. What are we to make of this?The charge of white evangelical hypocrisy has been leveled most recently by Michael Gerson, writing in the Atlantic's April edition. The title and subtitle of his major, nearly 7,000 word article read: "The Last Temptation: How evangelicals, once...

    Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the Israeli army's use of force against Palestinians at protests inside the Gaza Strip was unacceptable. Palestinian demonstrations, which began on March 30, have been dubbed "The Great March of Return" of refugees and their descendants to ancestral homes now in Israel. In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry criticized what it described as Israel's "indiscriminate use of force against the civilian population." Earlier on Monday, Russia's Defense Ministry accused Israel of carrying out airstrikes against a Syrian air base on Sunday following an alleged chemical weapons attack against civilians.
  • Who Is Viktor Yanukovych And What’s His Connection To Paul Manafort?

    President Donald Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort was indicted on Monday, as a federal grand jury brought forth charges including conspiracy and money laundering against the longtime political lobbyist and consultant. The indictment ― the fruit of the ongoing investigation being led by special counsel Robert Mueller ― says that Manafort and his associate Richard Gates acted as unregistered agents for Ukrainian political figures and parties between at least 2006 and 2015, specifically naming former pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych as one of their employers. While working for Yanukovych and his Party of Regions, Manafort and Gates allegedly accrued...

    It's funny how projection works. These hysterical Democrats calling for President Trump's impeachment because of his dastardly "authoritarian tendencies" are the ones with authoritarian tendencies. I'll bet you didn't know that the president commits an impeachable offense if his political opponents harbor an irrational fear that he has authoritarian tendencies -- whether or not he has acted outside the scope of his constitutional authority, flouted the rule of law or done anything else that could be remotely construed as a high crime or misdemeanor. I didn't, either. But doesn't it bother you just a little bit that the very people...
  • Liberal media didn’t think data mining was so bad when Obama’s campaign did it

    The left is outraged that President Trump’s campaign used data mining to win the 2016 election – but neither the media nor Democrats seemed to mind when President Obama’s team did the same thing. Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro penned a column for The Hill on Tuesday headlined, “What’s genius for Obama is scandal when it comes to Trump,” which outlined the differences in the way similar news was covered during contrasting administrations. Shapiro surfaced a 2012 report from The Guardian that proclaimed Obama’s reelection team was mining data through Facebook to target specific voters. The Guardian is also the publication...
  • Pastor Robert Jeffress says porn star allegations are ‘totally irrelevant’ when supporting president

    Pastor Robert Jeffress defended Trump against a porn star’s claims that she romped with the president, calling the allegations “totally irrelevant” to those of faith who support Trump. Michael Cohen, a lawyer for Trump, admitted in February that he paid Clifford $130,000, but didn’t say much more at the time. As a result of Cohen’s admission, Clifford may be able to speak freely about the alleged affair, since the purported non-disclosure agreement may have been breached by Cohen’s remarks. Clifford announced on Tuesday that she filed a civil suit against Trump in attempt to void the non-disclosure agreement. Trump representatives...

And what was it based on? They said that I, your beloved host, El Rushbo, a household name in all four corners of the world, was advocating for the failure of America. By not hoping the president succeed, I was hoping America would fail....

    The Nauseating, Obscene Hypocrisy of the Left Regarding Children By Bryan Fischer For the left, it’s all about the children. At least, that’s what they want you to think. But my assessment is that they simply use children to shamelessly advance their regressive agenda. They try to bludgeon us into silence by accusing us of hating children if we disagree with them. The reality, I suspect, is the other way round. I believe it is the left that does not truly care about children. Children are simply a manipulative tool they can use to bulldoze Americans into accepting their radical...

    Recently, a professor of history at City University of New York (CUNY) objected to my support for specific provisions of North Carolina’s HB527, which allow student hecklers who disrupt campus speeches to be subjected to campus disciplinary procedures. After he shared one of my remarks on Twitter, many of his followers made accusations of “hypocrisy.” Their reasoning was that one’s opposition to safe spaces requires support for an unfettered right to heckle speakers. In other words, the person who seeks to restrict heckling is somehow creating a safe space for campus speakers. Therefore, he must also support safe spaces generally...

    PARIS -- Nine months into his mandate to investigate possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, special counsel Robert Mueller has finally found some actual Russians to indict. Unfortunately, by pointing the finger at these Russians, he has exposed hypocrisy within the U.S. system. Last year, Mueller's investigation produced indictments against four former Trump campaign advisors who had dealings with Russians during their international business careers before joining the campaign. Most of what those indictments covered could have fallen under the purview of the Internal Revenue Service and seemed out of place in a multimillion-dollar investigation into alleged...

    Black Panther set box office records on its way to becoming “a watershed in cultural history of African Americans,” wrote The Miami Herald’s Leonard Pitts Jr. Yet, the movie was typical Hollywood – filled with violence, including 163 shootings, while Marvel stars call for gun control. Lupita Nyong’o, who played Black Panther’s love interest Nakia, advocated for gun control in the wake of the Orlando shooting. The actress posted a long message on Instagram, saying “most importantly, we simply need to put down the guns!” Other Marvel Avengers have weighed in as well. Captain America’s Chris Evans has called for...

    Republicans on the Federal Communications Commission ended President Obama's "net neutrality" regulations. Those regulations were passed with no reason, but a fear of what might happen to the internet by major corporations. They were not needed. But Democrats declared that their repeal would cause people to die. Republicans rolled back Barack Obama's individual mandate that forces Americans to buy health insurance whether or not they want it. Statisticians declared Americans would lose their health insurance if the GOP did this, ignoring that those losing health insurance would be those actively choosing to forego an insurance plan. Again, Democrats declared the...

    For a party trying to float by on feminist hashtags and regain lost blue collar voters, a Kennedy seemed an odd choice to give the rebuttal to the State of the Union. And that was before they put him in front of a wrecked car. Yet, even though the speech was a farrago of platitudes given by a wholly undeserving trustfunder who appeared to be drooling and was attired like a freshman high school athlete dressing up for game day, this was a Kennedy, after all — which meant the media had to find something to praise him for. And...

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    Imagine it's late 2011. The world just found out about Jerry Sandusky, former assistant Penn State football coach who would be convicted of repeatedly raping children in 2012. Penn State higher-ups, in an attempt to turn the focus of the scandal away from the school, decide to turn an annual banquet into a celebration of those fighting child rape. They call up head coach Joe Paterno. They call up President Graham Spanier. They call up athletic director Tim Curley. All of them give long, brave speeches about the evils of sexual exploitation of children resulting in rousing applause from all...

    They should hand out awards for hypocrisy, preening, and lack of self-awareness. On Golden Globes night, Hollywood preened in front of its black mirror as usual, but the degree to which it was blind to what was obvious to all observers was stranger than ever. It was like that time the pear-shaped Homer Simpson looked at his reflection and saw a torso rippling with musculature. What was the most crystalline moment of self-unawareness?

    Some media observers say overseas reporters cover U.S. politics better than stateside scribes. It’s a case-by-case situation, of course. It’s not far from the truth, though. We saw a great example of it recently courtesy of the BBC. The Post, out in select theaters now and going wide January 12, stars Meryl Streep as Katherine Graham, The Washington Post publisher circa 1971. Graham approved the publication of The Pentagon Papers under great duress, a watershed moment in journalism. Tom Hanks co-stars as editor Ben Bradlee, and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg is behind the camera. Talk about heavy hitters. The story...

    New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, likely to be majority leader next year if Democrats take back the Senate, told CNBC Tuesday that one of his top two 2017 priorities would be an enormous corporate tax cut. Speaking of himself in the third person, Schumer said that “we’ve got to get things done. … The two things that come, that pop to mind — because Schumer, Clinton, and Ryan have all said they support these — are immigration and some kind of international tax reform tied to a large infrastructure program.” American multinational corporations are now holding a staggering $2.5 trillion...
