    Apparently, sports media have joined the growing list of “comedian” entertainers attacking Pres. Trump’s young son, Barron. A Fox Sports reporter viciously accused Pres. Trump’s 10 year-old son of slaughtering “100 small animals.” Not only did Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn), a sports writer, fail to provide any proof - he didn’t even have enough respect for the president’s son to spell his name correctly, declaring: “Baron (sic) Trump has killed no less than 100 small animals.”

    President Barack Obama blasted Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at an event in Washington D.C. Saturday night, claiming the Manhattan billionaire had “missed” the lesson of the legacy of slavery and segregation in America. Speaking in front of a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Obama and his former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called upon African Americans to turn out for this November’s election, warning that a Trump White House would “drag us backwards,” as Mrs. Clinton said. In making his appeal to black voters, Obama said he would be personally insulted if African...

    Struggling to shake Donald Trump in the polls, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton turned her sights instead on her GOP rival’s supporters, who she accused of a litany of offenses against society during a rally Friday evening. “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton told the crowd. “Right?

    A Dutch-Turkish journalist has been detained in Turkey after posting tweets critical of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, her newspaper said. Ebru Umar wrote a column for the Dutch Metro newspaper criticising President Erdogan's clampdown on dissent. Since 2014, prosecutors have launched cases against more than 1,800 journalists for insulting Mr Erdogan. Last week, Germany allowed the prosecution of a prominent TV satirist for insulting Mr Erdogan to proceed. Jan Boehmermann had read a crude poem on TV, aimed at testing German law. Germany and the Netherlands have old lese-majeste laws against insulting the head of a friendly state. Both...

    Every now and then I’m reminded of just how clever Satan can be, especially during Lent.Consider, for example, a pernicious little sin that seems to have taken root and grown in the age of social media: detraction. I’ve been seeing it more and more. Nobody really talks about it or the harm it inflicts — though the pope has stressed, often, the inherent evil of its close cousin,  gossip. (The pontiff has even compared gossip to terrorism.)So what’s the big deal? Let me count the ways.First, the catechism teaches that detraction is a sin against the eighth commandment: 2477 Respect for the reputation of persons forbids every attitude and...

Where we are beating him is when voters’ get more engaged and they get more informed.” Hunch: I’m thinking Trump and his “Silent Majority” may push back on this just a bit don’t you think?

"That language is insulting in my opinion," said Fiorina, who launched an unsuccessful Senate bid against longtime California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer in 2010, on "CBS This Morning." "It's incendiary and most of all, it's a distraction. It's a distraction from what are very real and important issues," the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard said.

The United States harshly criticized Ya’alon this week, over his remarks that the United States “shows weakness” in various arenas around the world, including Ukraine, and has a “soft” approach over Iran’s nuclear program. In fact, Secretary of State John Kerry personally protested to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over Ya'alon's strong criticism which the U.S. saw as trying to hurt U.S.-Israel...

The latest step in that direction is the announcement that 157 Air Force majors will be terminated prior to...

    Center for Security Policy ^ | July 22, 2010 | Frank Gaffney
    The Center for Security Policy today unveiled a powerful 1-minute video opposing the construction of a 13-story, $100 million mega-mosque near the hallowed ground of the World Trade Center. The Twin Towers were destroyed on 9/11 by adherents to the barbaric, supremacist and totalitarian program authoritative Islam calls "Shariah." And the imam who is promoting this mosque has publicly declared that he seeks to "bring Shariah to America." As the ad makes clear, Shariah's followers have long built mosques on the most sacred sites of those they have conquered - for example, on Jerusalem's Temple Mount, at Constantinople/Istanbul's St. Sophia...

    NEW YORK--Answering a question from a reader as to whether a teacher should post a cartoon on his door that disparages President Obama as a socialist, New York Times columnist Randy Cohen writes: [W]hile this teacher does not transgress ethically, he does seem to fall short intellectually, offering not deft political analysis but slogans and clichés... does it defame a person to call him a “socialist” (outside of nutty far-right circles) — a set of ideas many advanced Western democracies find congenial, what with the accessible health-care, affordable higher education and good public transportation? Cohen, who writes the Times'...

    Beyond the Cusp ^ | April 26,2010 | B. Saunders
    General Jim Jones (Ret) opened a speech before a think tank using a little joke to break the ice. He broke more than just the ice, he broke a number of rules of etiquette for all government employees beginning with do not stray into racial or ethnic stereotypes. One would think somebody who reached the status of General and appointment to one of the highest and most sensitive positions in our government would know better than to tell a “Jew Joke”. Below is the video of the offending joke for those who just have to hear it to believe it,...

    The manifold organs of the ObamaMedia are abuzz with outrage over what they are calling Israel's "insult" to the United States. But what was the nature of this awful and outrageous insult? Did Israeli officials pull off V.P. Biden's rug to show off his bald head underneath. Did they ask him why the suit of his pants is so shiny. Did they make him sit at the kiddie table?

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel's relationship with the United States, a defining feature of the troubled Middle East, was under severe strain as diplomats scrambled on Saturday to save newborn U.S.-brokered peace talks with the Palestinians. A senior U.S. official predicted "a dicey period here in the next couple days to a couple of weeks" as Palestinians demanded the reversal of a new Israeli settlement plan and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition, which includes pro-settler parties, reacts to unusually blunt criticism from Washington. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Israel's behavior "insulting" after it approved 1,600 new homes last week...

    So who gets custody of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog in the wake of Conan O'Brien's divorce from NBC? The disposition of the Conan-created bits and characters has been a hot topic of discussion as part of the ugly situation surrounding Jay Leno, O'Brien and NBC. Not surprisingly, NBC will own any schtick created by O'Brien during his 17 years at the network, people familiar with his exit negotiations said.

    Four of the most powerful business leaders in America arrived at the White House one day last month for lunch with President Barack Obama, sitting down in his private dining room just steps from the Oval Office. But even for powerful CEOs, there’s no such thing as a free lunch: White House staffers collected credit card numbers for each executive, and carefully billed them for the cost of the meal with the president.
