    Warning, sensitive MSNBC viewers may want to look away. That’s essentially what Rachel Maddow told liberal watchers on Wednesday night before showing a picture of anti-Hillary Clinton buttons at the Republican convention. Considering the hateful rhetoric that’s come out of MSNBC for years, perhaps that viewer warning should have appeared in the past. The buttons included ones that read “Hillary for prison” and “Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016.” Maddow informed viewers, “You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being...

    Former Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin denounced the Black Lives Matter movement not only for their “disgusting” hypocrisy but also for turning America into a dangerous place where even police officers do not feel safe. In a wide-ranging interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Sunday, which airs on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from from 7 PM to 10 PM EST, Palin called out the Black Lives Matter movement, saying it is nothing but a “farce” because of their “intolerance,” “short-sightedness,” and “narrow-mindedness” that is “really excluding anyone but someone who happens...

    Hillary Clinton, who if elected would be President Obama Part Two, is a world-class liar. Whenever She considers truth damaging to Herself -- as it usually is -- She lies. Normally, She gets away with it. She lied about her State Department e-mails: guilty as hell and free as a bird. She lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi and, thus far, has got away with it. This year, it is up to the American people to do the only thing we can to prevent Her from becoming President Obama Part Two. Our only way to do that will be...

Former Army Ranger Kris “Tanto” Paronto has started a nonprofit called Leading From the Front, which he hopes will translate into a national movement to drive home the real threat Islamic extremists pose to America. “Radical Islam is at war with America, and we are slowly losing,” Mr. Paronto said. “From Benghazi to Orlando, we are seeing the deadly consequences of President Obama and...

    In the mid to late 1930s and throughout the World War II years, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda Josef Goebbels helped the German National Socialist Party spread their message to the German people. Goebbels was a master of propaganda, helping create the environment in Germany that eventually led to the later crimes against humanity committed by the Nazi leadership. The German people were fed a steady stream of whatever message the Nazi Party wanted them to receive. During the war most Germans knew that the Jews and other “undesirables” were being abused, but the true horror of the death camps...

    The trendy knock on Hillary Clinton, even among those who acknowledge that she’s the most capable and knowledgeable of the 2016 candidates for President, is the accusation that she’s just not honest. Her opponents keep insisting that she can’t be trusted, that she’s not telling the truth, and that there is therefore no telling what she might do while in office. But whenever fact checkers look at what Clinton and her opponents are saying during this election cycle, she rates out as the most honest of the bunch.

Karen Lang, who was the director of Clinton’s staff at the State Department, said she couldn’t be sure that all of the secretary’s emails had been retained because Clinton communicated with her top aides through the private email system. She was asked if the State Department took any steps to ensure that Clinton’s or aide Huma Abedin’s emails were not...

    Disinterested in reality. You’ll probably recall that, back on May 9th, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked a pointed question about the Iran deal. Fox News correspondent Kevin Corke wanted to know if Earnest could “state categorically that no senior official in this administration has ever lied publicly about any aspect of the Iran nuclear deal.” Earnest’s reply was an atypically blunt “No, Kevin.” Strangely, though, Earnest’s response is nowhere to be found in the official transcript of the exchange. As ABC News reported Friday, the line has simply vanished. The White House initially claimed the answer wasn’t...

    If Shakespeare were around today, he’d probably say that “the president doth protest too much, methinks.” How else to describe Barack Obama’s hour-long harangue to an audience in Elkhart, Ind., about how the economy is doing fabulously well, and that the only reason people don’t believe it is because of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh? Obama’s pique is understandable. After all, presidential candidates from both parties are currently running around the country bashing the economy — the one that Obama promised eight years ago would be going gangbusters by now. “People are anxious and uncertain about the economy,” Obama said...

    The devastating rise in Alaska's wildfires is making global warming even worse than scientists expected, US government researchers said on Wednesday. The sharp spike in Alaska's wildfires, where more than 5 million acres burned last year, are destroying a main buffer against climate change: the carbon-rich boreal forests, tundra and permafrost that have served as an enormous carbon sink. Northern wildfires must now be recognised as a significant driver of climate change - and not just a side-effect, according to the report from the US Geological Survey. The USGS warned last year that Alaska could lose about a quarter of...

It's not going to happen. But that doesn't matter. It was what...

    The largest increase in consumer spending since gas prices have dropped, according to Markowska, has been on healthcare. "In nominal terms, household spending on healthcare averaged 3.9% between 2010 and 2013," wrote Markowska in a note to clients Thursday. "It began to accelerate in the first half of 2014 and has averaged at 5.2% since then. Importantly, this pickup in healthcare spending was not driven by higher costs; real spending in this category accelerated from 1.9% in 2010-2013 to 3.9% thereafter." This would indicate that Americans have been not only been spending more because of increased costs, but also intentionally...

That applies especially to Schumer, who will be the Senate Democratic leader come January. Booker and Gillibrand hewed to the party line in backing the deal.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The economy is in the tank. It's confirmed. All the April economic news is out, jobs news and everything. So what does Obama do? Come out and spin it. He's doing a presser or some sort of press availability now at the White House timed exactly to coincide with the beginning of this program, which he is wont to do. Here are the numbers that you need to know: 160,000 new jobs in April, the vast majority of them part time. That is 50,000 below "expectations." The expectations are meaningless. It's a bunch of economic experts that...

    Congratulations, liberals of the Washington press corps and elite organizations: You’re a bunch of suckers. We all know this because the Obama White House just told us so. In an astounding New York Times piece by David Samuels, senior White House officials gleefully confess they use friendly reporters and nonprofits as public relations tools in the selling of President Obama’s foreign policy — and can do it almost at will because these tools are ignorant, will believe what they’re told, will essentially take dictation and are happy to be used just to get the information necessary for a tweet or...

    Since 2014, three U.S. service members have been killed in the war against ISIS in Iraq. Earlier this week, the Pentagon confirmed Navy SEAL Charles Keating IV was killed during operations with peshmerga fighters. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter specifically referred to the loss of life as a combat death. Despite Americans being killed on the battlefield with ISIS, the White House has maintained U.S. troops are simply acting as advisors in a dangerous region but are not involved in combat. "What I think is true is that Iraq and Syria are dangerous places and our men and women in...

    Jimmy Kimmel, the popular late-night TV host on ABC, has hyped his belief in global warming with an F-bomb-filled video that also makes fun of the new “Climate Hustle” documentary that reveals the fallacies on which the beliefs are based. WND had reported in the runup to the movie’s release on Monday that the public nowadays is hearing fewer and fewer facts about global warming, but more and more about what people “believe.” As in religion. In a one-night nationwide theatrical engagement on Monday, “Climate Hustle,” aimed to pull back the veil on a movement that even some of its...
  • When Black Lies Matter - 30 for 30 'Fantastic Lies'

    04/30/2016 2:16:00 PM PDT · by StCloudMoose · 14 replies
    the story of a black female stripper who made up a lie to blame a white lacrosse team of a gang rape as a distraction when she needed a defence to prevent the state from taking her children away from her. then a white prosecutor; seeking re-election knowingly, withheld evidence that cleared the lacrosse team. The white prosecutor overwhelmly won the black votes until the truth came out. The first five minutes of "Fantastic Lies" might make lacrosse fans cringe. White privileged athletes. Partyers. A de facto frat house. The labels thrown out, true or not, will likely lure a...

    Have you ever been deceived by a “confidence” artist, plying their trade? No? Think again. We’ve all been victimized, whether we know it or not. It’s called the “Climate Hustle” and scientists, politicians, educators, entertainers, business people, and even the president are willing perpetrators in the greatest con job in our lifetime. On Monday, May 2, 2016, during a one-night nationwide theatrical engagement, see for yourself the unmasking of this fraud in a powerful documentary, “Climate Hustle” that demolishes the climate change agenda. This could be the most important movie of the year. Here’s why: President Obama claimed at the...
  • The new climate spin: trying to reach conservatives by making fighting climate change ‘patriotic’

    Conservatives’ attitudes toward climate change and other environmental concerns shift when the issues are reframed in terms more closely aligned with their values, a new study from Oregon State University indicates. Researchers found that people who identified as conservative were more likely to support “pro-environmental” ideals when the issues were framed as matters of obeying authority, defending the purity of nature and demonstrating patriotism. The study underscores the ways in which discussions of important topics are informed by a person’s moral and ideological perspective, said the study’s lead author, Christopher Wolsko, an assistant professor of psychology at OSU-Cascades. “We think...

    Climate change could seriously redistribute resources and reallocate wealth - but not in a fair way. In a reverse of the famous Robin Hood folklore, it could rob from the poor to give to the rich, according to researchers. Yet even the rich may not feel any richer. Eli Fenichel, assistant professor of bioeconomics and ecosystem management at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies in the US, says: "People are mostly focused on the physical reallocation of these assets, but I don't think we've really started thinking enough about how climate change can reallocate wealth and influence the...

    He won a big victory in Wisconsin. He pierced the Donald Trump mystique. He even got some of the Capitol Hill lawmakers who regard him as a revolutionary and renegade to slink cautiously into his corner. By all logic, this should be a Ted Cruz moment — if only the next primary weren’t in New York. But on Tuesday, New Yorkers go to their polling places, and though Cruz has been the beneficiary of the calendar before — his performance on Super Tuesday helped force out of the race Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a demographically identical and philosophically similar...
