    A charity event in honor of a police officer killed while responding to a mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California last year has been canceled after the local police chief and a Democratic politician objected to the participation of prominent Republicans, according to organizers who spoke with a local Fox affiliate. The event, a flag-football game called the Blue Bowl, was supposed to have taken place at Newbury Park High School in Thousand Oaks. Los Angeles Rams football players were scheduled to show up and sign footballs imprinted with pictures of the fallen officer, Sgt. Ron Helus. And thousands of...
  • The Problem With Narrative

    This week, The New York Times caved to online bullying and changed a headline for an article covering President Donald Trump's remarks after the horrible shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. The original headline, "Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism," was met with outrage on social media by those on the left. During the day, the hashtag #CancelNYT began trending. The headline was changed to "Assailing Hate but Not Guns." So, if the headline was initially wrong, what did Trump say on Monday in response to the shootings? Trump noted that the El Paso shooter had "posted a...
  • Donald Trump lies more often than you wash your hands every day (CNN)

    (CNN)In his first 869 days as President, Donald Trump said 10,796 things that were either misleading or outright false, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker. Do the math and you get this: The President of the United States is saying 12 untrue things a day. Which is a lot! But it's also hard to wrap your head around how much lying or, uh, misleading that actually is. So, think about it this way: Trump is lying more every day than a majority of Americans wash their hands. According to data from The Soap and Detergent Association (yes, this is...

    Today I ran searches for information about the scandal in the Catholic Church. I specifically wanted news related to Italian newspaper reports which hinted that Pope Benedict's dossier on the Gay mafia within the Church was going to be made public. I got little or nothing on the mainline search engines - Google returning only generalized references to the scandal from Legacy media. I used DuckDuckGo and found sites from alternative Traditional Catholic online sources (ChurchMilitant -OnePeterFive) listed right off on the first page. It seems that search algorithms defer. At the risk of asking a stupid question when I...
  • The good, bad, and ugly of how major newspapers covered the 2018 teacher strikes

    During spring 2018, tens of thousands of teachers in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, and North Carolina walked out of their schools. These teachers were angry about pay, school funding, proposed benefit changes, and more. The walkouts attracted extensive media attention across the land; that coverage has helped shape public understanding of the strikes and any political impact. With that in mind, in a new report published by the American Enterprise Institute and Education Next, we’ve examined how five national newspapers (the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today) covered the strikes....

    A New Jersey community college is investigating why a professor shouted the F-word at a student in an incident that was caught on camera. The student identifies as politically conservative, and the incident has sparked complaints about the college as a liberal atmosphere where alternative political viewpoints are not tolerated. During a Sociology 105, Intercultural Communication class Wednesday, Brookdale Community College professor Howard Finkelstein grew angry with his student, Christopher Lyle, shouted "f--- your life," and pounded his hand on a table, according to video obtained by NJ Advance Media.
  • Joy Reid's Genius Graces Us All - Yet Again!

    I love Joy Reid. Whenever I need a break from the monotonous reporting of corrupt Democrats rigging elections for Hillary Clinton, I take a little peek over at the host of MSNBC's AM Joy’s Twitter page. In part because she seems like a genuinely nice person, albeit moronic. But also because the left-leaning host is typically spouting off some ignorant statement with a child-like curiosity to her #reiders- the self-appointed term she designated for her fans and followers. I enjoy reading what the left is thinking or rather feeling,  as most of the time it appears no critical thinking is occurring...

    NY Post ^ | November 5, 2017 | Michael Goodwin
    A friend likens The New York Times to a 1960s adolescent who refuses to grow up.  In a perpetual state of outrage, it is a newspaper of college snowflakes who embrace all forms of diversity except thought. It sees its liberal politics not as a point of view, but as received wisdom that cannot be legitimately disputed. The fixation on conformity reached a new low last week when the paper rolled out a coordinated attack on those of us who believe special counsel Robert Mueller ought to resign. I say coordinated because the newsroom and the opinion page produced similar...
  • American Bar Association refers to conservatives as ‘you people’ when rating Trump’s judicial pick

    American Bar Association evaluators referred to conservatives as “you people” and prodded one of President Trump’s judicial picks on his personal beliefs about abortion before slapping him with the group’s lowest judicial rating, the nominee told Congress Wednesday. Leonard Grasz, nominated for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, received a “not qualified” rating from the ABA after the grilling. He said that during the questioning it became clear the ABA evaluators didn’t like his pro-life personal stance. “I was asked repeatedly for my personal opinion on social issues including abortion — it seemed to be a great topic of...

    CNN prides itself apparently in being a facts first organization. There’s that idiotic apple ad they’ve been running. This is what CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote on October 19, which pretty much slams President Trump for suggesting that the FBI, the Democrats, and Russia might be conspirators with these files. It was in reaction to a tweet in which the president said, “Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?” He is suggesting that a dossier prepared by a former member of British intelligence...

    Hello. I am Hillary Rodham Clinton, and this is the Graham Norton Show.” The almost-holder of what was once the loftiest imaginable office was surprisingly game for a bit of British kitsch: warm, indulgent and dressed in yellow, like a president on a kindergarten walkabout. She is still too grand for some of Graham Norton’s antics. She wasn’t sold on the idea of sharing a sofa with another celebrity. You cannot blame her. The chat-trading of Norton’s ersatz dinner party environment is inherently high-risk. You could be in the middle of the most profoundly revealing story – one you could...
  • TV Makers Can't Stop Ripping Republicans

    The world of television and how Hollywood delivers it keeps changing. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon have become prestigious brands whose original programming draws a pile of Emmy nominations. In 2017, Netflix has received 91 Emmy nominations, second only to HBO's 111. Hulu has 18 nominations, and Amazon has 16, just a few less than Fox's 21. But as much as technology changes, some things remain the same. The entertainment factories keep ripping on Republican politicians in the crudest terms. Hulu has created a sitcom called "Difficult People." The characters are two unlikeable, self-absorbed stand-up comedians. In the...

  • Trashing the American Revolution in the Age of Hysteria

    Liberal hysteria over Donald Trump was hardly required to pose questions about the "patriotic myths" of the Founding Fathers, but his elevation to the Oval Office has accelerated the trashing of the heroic past, even the stories of the American Revolution that generations of school children cherished. It's not just Parson Weems' imaginative tale of George Washington cutting down his father's cherished cherry tree, and his owning up with his assertion that "I cannot tell a lie." That story, from the first biography of the first president, has long been exposed as the fiction of a teaching moment meant...

    The success of NBA San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich cannot be denied. In his professional career, the Popovich-led Spurs have won five championships. Popovich is also a military vet. Fluent in Russian and armed with an Air Force Academy degree in Soviet studies, his first post was as an intelligence officer assigned to a top-secret facility operating spy satellites. He also played and coached basketball for the Air Force during his five years of active duty, achieving the rank of captain. So the man is not without experience and insight. Here's the problem. On several occasions, Popovich has teed...

    ...So, what do Americans really think fake news is? It appears its divisive nature may have more to do with its own muddy definitions than media’s clear deceptions... (31%) say the problem lies in “misinterpretation or exaggeration of actual news on social media.” From there, the blame shifts toward the left; nearly a quarter (24%) say the source is mainstream liberal media, while just 13 percent overall point the finger at mainstream conservative outlets. Nearly one-fifth (18%) say they “don’t know much” about fake news, while 9 percent fault bloggers and independent journalists. A small minority (5%) don’t think it’s...

  • Trump Plans to Sign Repeal of Obama-Era Broadband Rules on Internet Privacy

    Breitbart News spoke with Phil Kerpen, president of American Commitment, about his organization’s opposition to the FCC’s broadband privacy rule. Kerpen told Breitbart News that the criticism against removing this regulation is unwarranted. “This is a deliberate disinformation campaign from the usual suspects from the tech-left and the media, and they’re completely misrepresenting the issue, and the conservatives are falling for the fake news narrative,” he told Breitbart News. “Up until 2015, the FTC protected consumer privacy, and then the FCC Net Neutrality order eviscerated the consumer protections at the FTC by pre-empting FTC’s jurisdiction. The FCC then came around...

    The left and its allies the main stream corporate media have denied till their throats were hoarse that Europe in particular countries like Sweden have a growing crime problem thanks to Muslim immigrants. Despite years and years of no-go zones, riots, demonstrations, chants of allah-akhbar in the streets of Malmo and Stockholm, speeches by clerics and refugees advocating violence and abuse towards women and non-muslims ad nauseum, the far left wont own up. In Europe the problem is much worse... Leftist governments have banned news outlets from reporting rapes and murders, police are forbidden from mentioning ethnicity and religious orientation...

    I apologize to Donald Trump. As Sean Spicer so wisely said at his first news conference on Monday (It was the first. The one that happened on Saturday did not happen at all, and I recognize that!), it is unfair to be so mean and negative all the time. Here is the fair and unbiased story about the inauguration written in compliance with the Trump style guidelines that we should have been obeying all along. Nothing that has ever happened or will ever happen was as great as Donald Trump’s inauguration.
