    Jake Tapper appeared on the Ellen show onTuesday and guess what the main topic of discussion was? Do I really need to spell it out? Unless you have been in a state of hibernation for the past few years then you definitely know they talked about the one who lives rent-free in the minds of liberals -- President Donald Trump. Tapper was obviously irked by Trump bringing up the subject of fake news.
  • Unearthed: Another Bonkers Anti-Semitic Rant From Louis Farrakhan

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...

    Generally I would not refer so strongly to a prior discussion thread if the latest information did not absolutely confirm what was originally suspected. On January 10th, 2017 we discussed The Anatomy of a Modern Political Smear, where we connected the dots, as they were happening in-real-time between James Comey, the Obama intelligence community and the media, specifically CNN. {Please See Here}
  • Sources: Mueller has evidence Cohen was in Prague in 2016, confirming part of dossier

    WASHINGTON The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trumps personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spys report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election. It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White...

    Mediaite ^ | January 11th, 2017
    CNNs Jake Tapper reported Wednesday morning that intelligence officials looked into allegations from an explosive unsubstantiated memo that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen visited Prague in late August to meet with Russian officials, and found that it was a different Michael Cohen who visited the city. Cohen strongly denied the charges Tuesday, saying that he had never been to Prague. The Washingtonian reported that two sources at the University of Southern California confirmed that Cohen was in Los Angeles at the time he was supposed to have been in Europe. Tapper seemingly confirmed Cohens story. People tried to run that down...
  • CNN's Jen Psaki: President Trump's New 'Cheatin Obama' Nickname Might Have 'Racial Undertones'

    News Busters ^ | April 5, 2018 2:22 PM EDT | By Ryan Foley |
    During The Lead With Jake Tapper, former State Department spokeswoman and Obama communications director under President Obama Jen Psaki accused President Trump's new nickname for the former President, "Cheatin' Obama" of having racial undertones. President Trump, who has become known for branding opponents in both political parties with nicknames, finally unveiled a nickname for his predecessor. When pointing to a Rasmussen poll showing that he had a 50 percent approval rating, the President said that his approval rating was higher than that of Cheatin Obama at the same time during his presidency. Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki, now a CNN...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday invoked President Donald Trump's name multiple times in response to a question about what advice he can give progressive leaders who have a tough time condemning noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Several House Democrats have come under fire in the last week for their association with Farrakhan, including Democratic National Committee vice chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), who recently earned a "Four Pinocchios" rating from the Washington Post Fact Checker concerning his interactions with the controversial Nation of Islam leader. Sanders sat down with CNN's Jake Tapper at the South by Southwest conference in Austin,...

    Embattled Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said he had provided "amazing leadership" to his department on Sunday, drawing disbelief from CNN host Jake Tapper. Tapper pressed Israel during a nearly half-hour interview about the response of his department before and during the Stoneman Douglas high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. Israel announced Thursday that school resource officer Scot Peterson had been suspended and decided to retire rather than be terminated after learning Peterson failed to enter the school during the massacre and engage the shooter. Israel also defended the conduct of his department in response to...

    Calls for the Broward sheriff to resign intensify. The vocal sheriff who has criticized everyone from local politicians to the NRA to one of his own officers in the wake of the Florida high school shooting is facing the pressure himself Monday, as calls mount for him to resign amid reports about his departments alleged incompetence in stopping the gunman. The heat against Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel is coming from all angles, including from a survivor of the attack who told Fox News that he failed to act on so many different levels and from dozens of state lawmakers...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? The 2018 U.S. Winter Olympics team was a colossal flop, winning just 23 medals overall, the lowest U.S. total since 1998. This comes despite the fact that the Games have been loaded up with junk sports over the last 20 years specifically in order to give the U.S. a shot at winning more medals, in hopes of boosting TV ratings. Not surprisingly, the poor U.S. performance also led directly to these Olympic games setting new lows in terms of television audience. But all is not...

He’s often been accused of spewing “flat out racist” immigration rants on his Fox News show.But on rare occasions, Carlson’s invective can lead viewers to interesting insights.Case in point: in his final segment on last night’s show, Carlson railed againstairports that play CNN in their waiting areas.“Everyone’s watching CNN,” he said. “They don’t have a choice.”Carlson, a former CNN host himself, said the decision “may have made sense 20 years ago, when CNN had a centrist reputation.”But now, he...

    Democratic Senators are rejecting President Donald Trumps four-part amnesty-and-immigration reform, and are instead working with business-first GOP Senators to pass an amnesty with only token reforms. There is not likely to be a DACA deal, though were working every single day, on telephone calls and person to person, to try to reach this bipartisan agreement, Sen. Dick Durbin told Jake Tapper on the February 4 edition of CNNs State of the Union. Durbin said the Democrats would not stage another shutdown, but declared: I think were making real progress. I want to salute the moderates in both the Republicans and...

    CNNs State of the Union panel ripped former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign Sunday one day after staffers corralled the press behind a rope as Clinton walked in a Fourth of July parade in New Hampshire. The panel consisting of CNN contributors S.E. Cupp and Van Jones, The Wall Street Journals Carol Lee, and CNN political reporter Jeff Zeleny roasted Clintons rope line, with Jones calling it the worst visual metaphor for her campaign. This is humiliating for reporters who have to abide by Hillary Clintons rules of journalism, Cupp told host Jake Tapper. And its not...

    West Virginia's Sen. Joe Manchin (D.) criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) after being shown a clip of her characterizing President Donald Trump's immigration plan as a way to "Make America White Again." CNN's "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper used the Pelosi clip to start a discussion on immigration. "Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again," Pelosi said. "You know what, we don't need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, Paul Ryan or anybody else," Manchin said. Manchin proceeded to say...
