    The New York Times issued a correction Thursday on an article that incorrectly claimed all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies agreed that “Russia orchestrated the attacks, and did it to help get [Trump] elected.” The original article, published June 25, covered certain reactions that President Donald Trump gave in response to Russian cyber attacks and interactions with the 2016 presidential election. TheNYT’s correction notes that: “The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved...
  • Was Obama Really Scandal Free?

    While speaking in Peru for an international summit, President Obama bragged that his administration has been, allegedly, scandal-free during his presidency. "I'm extremely proud of the fact that over 8 years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations." He's actually serious about this. And it appears that it's a goal of the Obama administration to push this claim in an attempt to frame the outgoing president's legacy. During an interview with CNN which aired on Sunday, President Obama's top aide, Valerie Jarrett, claimed that Obama is proud of himself because his administration has been "scandal-free."...

    NRO ^ | Victor Davis Hanson
    Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration. Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as...

    NY Times ^ | May 10, 2017 | ADAM GOLDMAN and CHARLIE SAVAGE
    These are not happy times at the F.B.I. Morale at the country’s premier law enforcement agency plummeted months ago, after James B. Comey, its director, revived the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in October and plunged the bureau back into the political maelstrom just before the election. Then President Trump fired Mr. Comey on Tuesday, saying he had mishandled the Clinton investigation, and the mood darkened again. Agents said they were stunned that Mr. Trump would fire Mr. Comey in the midst of an F.B.I. investigation into whether any of the president’s associates had conspired...

    Life expectancy can vary widely in the United States, depending on where you live. That's the finding of a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study also shows something else that wasn't necessarily intended by the authors — namely, that all those claims about how the U.S. spends more money on health care and gets worse outcomes than any other industrialized nation are nonsense. Overall, the life expectancy at birth in the U.S. is 79.1 years (76.7 for men and 81.5 years for women), the JAMA study says. That's the number that countless reports about...
  • Steinbeck's myth of the Okies (Another archtypical liberal myth debunked)

    The New Criterion ^ | June 2002 | Keith Windschuttle
    Steinbeck's myth of the Okies by Keith Windschuttle John Steinbeck performed a rare feat for a writer of fiction. He created a literary portrait that defined an era. His account of the “Okie Exodus” in The Grapes of Wrath became the principal story through which America defined the experience of the Great Depression. Even today, one of the enduring images for anyone with even a passing familiarity with the 1930s is that of Steinbeck’s fictional characters the Joads, an American farming family uprooted from its home by the twin disasters of dust storms and financial crisis to become refugees in...

    Freedom From Truth: FFRF is beyond all reason by Daniel Clark “Our purpose is to protect the constitutional principle of separation between state and church,” At least that’s what Freedom From Religion Foundation Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor wrote in a thinly veiled threat to the Allegheny County Council, to dissuade it from installing a plaque in the county courthouse that says “In God We Trust.” That principle, like everything else the FFRF stands for, is a lie. If Gaylor and friends can point to anything in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits a Pittsburgh courthouse from acknowledging God, this particular resident...

    There’s a new shocking revelation to the man whom Schenectady Police claim faked his own hate crime. It turns out he may not even be Jewish as he claimed to be. “I looked and said, ‘what the hell is going on here?'” That was Andrew King during a NEWS10 ABC interview in February. He showed the messages of hate, swastikas spray-painted on the front of his Schenectady home. ... They say he tried to convert several times but was turned down by at least two congregations. They strongly cautioned me that Mr. King does not represent the Jewish community and...

    The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the "dumbest anchor" on Fox News is a "jackass," according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity's brain is a "jackass." Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a "jackass." If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a "jackass" on Twitter. The chances of being called a "jackass" by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a "jackass" in the last year, nearly half...

    An elaborate hoax based on forged documents escalates the phenomenon of “fake news” and reveals an audience on the left that seems willing to believe virtually any claim that could damage Trump. In the third week of January, an Israeli named Yoni Ariel flew from Tel Aviv to Rome carrying $9,000 in cash on a secret mission to bring down Donald Trump. There, he met with an Italian businessman. Seated at a table toward the rear of a café, away from the street where they might attract unwanted attention, Ariel recalled, he handed over the cash. In exchange he was...

    Footage has emerged of a heated row in the Oval Office on Friday that saw Donald Trump erupt into a 'ballistic' tirade against Steven Bannon and other senior advisors. The president reportedly unleashed his anger on Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus for failing to fight off the firestorm surrounding attorney general Jeff Sessions' recusal amid links to Russia. A furious Trump told Bannon and Priebus they weren't flying on Air Force One with him to Florida before reportedly storming out and heading down to Mar-a-Lago. While it is not clear what the discussion was about, Bannon was filmed...

    Washington (CNN)Several US officials told CNN Thursday that the US is now taking action to locate and monitor hundreds of people or "contacts" found as part the intelligence retrieved during the deadly raid last month in Yemen targeting al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Some of these people are believed to be in the West, but not in the United States. The government is taking action to find and monitor these AQAP-linked individuals because of the threat they may pose to Europe, the officials added. The fact that officials said they are actively pursuing leads uncovered from the raid indicates...

    President Trump has been in office for barely a month, but he already deserves credit for at least one major accomplishment: He’s gotten the New York Times to discover a new interest in intensively covering antisemitism. What am I talking about? Consider the following brief recent history of vandalism of Jewish cemeteries and their coverage, or lack of it, in the New York Times.January, 2008: In New Jersey, 499 gravestones are knocked over at a Jewish cemetery. The Times covered it with a news article that ran in New York-area copies of the paper and that made no connection to...

    I'm an official card-carrying member of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy. Every morning, I sit in on the hyper-secret nationwide conference call, during which we receive our marching orders from the Forces of Evil. But unless I've missed something--and granted, maybe the extra-bold coffee doesn't always kick in--not once have I heard mention of a plan to impeach Pres. Obama. So what does Ed Schultz know that I don't? He splattered his MSNBC show this evening with incessant dark speculations to the effect that the new Republican majority is plotting to impeach Pres. Obama. View video here.

Speaking after the UC Berkeley riots, CNN commentator Ben Ferguson argued that campus leftists need to learn how to respond to speech with less destructive means. “Liberals need to grow up on college campuses because people are actually getting hurt now,” Ferguson said the day after the riots. In response, Hill suggested that right-wing students engage in similar destructive behavior on college campuses, but when...

    by Brooke Bosca | Top Right NewsThe leftist lies about President Trump's immigration actions never seem to end. The media and Democrats have attacked Trump for his entirely legal executive order restricting people from 7 high-risk nations entering the U.S. Every president since a 1952 law was passed has used it -- including Obama with Iraqis in 2011 and Cubans in 2016, with zero outrage. Not only does the press lie about the law, but about incidents they've falsely ascribed to Trump's ban -- such as the media's fake story about an Iraqi woman dying because of the executive order -- quickly proven dead...
