  • Vanity - Fox News Channel, "The Five" will bomb badly at 9:00PM...Prime Time slot!!!

    04/20/2017 3:01:22 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 125 replies
    The prime time program shuffle resulting from the Bill O'Reilly departure from Fox News Channel is seriously flawed, and will fail quickly with a massive loss of viewers of "The Five".....now slated for the 9:00PM time slot. The show is boring, with only one member of "The Five" worth her salt {KG), and, it is not Dana Perino, who is terrible. The three males are losers with little substance. Bob Beckel and Juan Williams are not dummies...but 100% empty suits!!! The winning line up would be: - Martha McCallum at 7:00PM - Tucker Carlson at 8:00PM - Jesse Watters at...

    A row between Turkey and Netherlands that escalated over the latter’s refusal to permit Turkish politicians to hold rallies in the country has grown after Turkey issued two diplomatic notes to the Dutch envoy in Ankara amid calls from third parties for calm.Turkey summoned the Dutch chargé d’affaires to the Turkish Foreign Ministry for the third time since Saturday to demand an official apology after Turkish Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya was prevented from meeting with Turks living in the Netherlands, as well as a comprehensive probe against officers who used “disproportionate” force against Turkish demonstrators.Foreign Ministry sources...

    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? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.

    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...
  • Ted Cruz Says Donald Trump's Voters Have "relatively low information" And Are "not that engaged"

    GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz tells The Brody File that the reason Donald Trump is performing well in the GOP race for president is because his voters are uninformed and not engaged in the process. “Donald does well with voters who have relatively low information, who are not that engaged and who are angry and they see him as an angry voice. 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? Lots to unpack...

Saunders 1996-08-28 Chicago -- ON THE SECOND DAY of the Democratic convention, as Democrats were celebrating the fact that most of the Chicago 8 had been co-opted into the party, Patricia and Glenn Mendoza went to court, where they faced charges for their protest against President Clinton. The more things change, the more they stay the same. While Patricia, outfitted with a white dress, white purse and white pumps, nervously appeared before Judge Robert Lopes, Tom Hayden, a former Chicago 8 member who now serves in California's state...

    With respect it was not inapropriate. It was reporting what a high ranking republican operative called people supporting Trump. It was vulgar, but was reported. This shows us exactly what they think of people tired of the rino, gop-er, vichy republican leadership and their phony do-nothing kabuki candidates. It is EVIDENCE. It is their true colors. It is their words. And it shows their desperation. And it shows they really have nothing much left to play.

    French officials recently declared that that country would stop using any of those names and instead refer to the group as “Daesh.” Whether referred to as ISIS, ISIL, or IS, all three names reflect aspirations that the United States and its allies unequivocally reject. Political and religious leaders all over the world have noted this. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said, “This is a terrorist group and not a state. . . the term Islamic State blurs the lines between Islam, Muslims, and Islamists.” The term “Daesh” is strategically a better choice because it is still accurate in that it...

    California Republican Carly Fiorina said Friday it is "insulting" for radio host Rush Limbaugh to call a student activist a "slut" and "prostitute" because she is pushing for employers to pay for contraception. "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. At least one advertiser, The Sleep Train, has pulled its advertising from...

Twitter / @CFKArgentinaShe then tweeted a non-apology: Sorry. ¿Sabes qué? Es que es tanto el exceso del ridículo y el absurdo, que sólo se digiere con humor.
