  • Media Circus: What to expect from the launch of The Undefeated [More ESPN SJW Nonsense]

    If one is to judge a sports media brand based on its external press, the last 12 months have not been good for ESPN. From hemorrhaging subscribers to declining ratings for its flagship show to excruciating company layoffs to high-profile talent leaving the network, it’s been a steady drumbeat of negative news coming out of Bristol Land. But on Tuesday at 7:00 a.m ET, with the launch of The Undefeated, ESPN’s micro site on the nexus of sports, race and culture, the company gets a big opportunity to boast about something transformational and positive within its walls.

    …Unless, of course, you're trying to put Hillary in the oval office Donald Trump is a boorish, horrible, human being who fails to live up to even the dismal behavioral standards of Bill Clinton. He’s also not a “true conservative” - whatever that is. This is the message being offered by the #NeverTrumpers who are hell-bent on handing the election to Hillary finding a “real dyed-in-the-wool conservative” who will run as a 2016 third party candidate. Because Trump is so odious, someone with honest-to-God “right-wing credentials” simply must be dragged into the race. To that end, “real conservative” and Weekly...

"The insiders have poured over the rules of the Republican Party ... and they have found a way to lie, cheat and steal Trump out of enough delegates to force a second ballot."

    Today we will join 20,000 fellow Jews in Washington, D.C. for the annual AIPAC policy conference. And this year, as in prior election years, the leading presidential candidates — Donald Trump among them — will take the stage to address pro-Israel advocates from across the country. So what makes this year different from all other years? This year, we’ve seen politics turn ugly. Hateful rhetoric cascades through the airwaves, inciting violence and bigotry. The unprecedented tone of the election cycle should give us pause. The Jewish people knows all too well the horrors of individuals using hate as a political...

    According to Bloomberg, the increasingly left-wing ESPN sports network has been forced to cut 350 jobs due directly to subscriber losses, which is also known as cord cutting. Early estimates were between 200 and 300 job cuts after parent company Disney ordered ESPN to cut $100 million from its 2016 budget. In just over a year, as customers cut their cable cords and move to streaming television services like Netflix, as of August, ESPN had lost a whopping 3.2 million subscribers.

The regime’s military has sought to retain a footprint in far-flung areas of the country, from Deir Ezzor in Syria’s eastern desert to Aleppo in the north and Deraa in the south, attempting to consolidate its hold over state institutions and protect its officer corps by retreating in the face of overwhelming offensives and subjecting lost territory to relentless...

    With just a few days remaining before the midterm elections, the Democrats are limping to the finish line. We are in the closing days of the 2014 campaign, and in Democratic campaigns across the country, none of the real issues are being discussed. There is no justification for the Democrats to declare there is peace and prosperity, and certainly none of them are promoting a message of hope and change. The Democrats’ campaigns have been a series of denials, comical disassociation and outright clumsy lies that will only further alienate voters from the political process. Say what you want to...

    Marijuana legalization advocates in Oregon have launched a $2 million-plus ad campaign starring a 33-year police veteran. The new ad, embedded below, features Pete Tutmark, a former patrol sergeant and sheriff’s deputy. Tutmark criticizes what he calls a “broken” system that diverts resources from important crime-solving to drug arrests and urges his fellow Oregonians to vote yes on measure 91 this fall, which would legalize and regulate recreational marijuana use. “Last year in Oregon, there were 13,000 citations and arrests for marijuana,” he says in the ad. “That takes time, time better spent solving murders, rape cases, finding missing children....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) FERGUSON, Missouri — Time hasn’t healed the anger here. Eight people were arrested during protests outside the police station on South Florissant Avenue on Sunday night, and residents say the tension is still palpable, nearly two months after Michael Brown was killed by police officer Darrell Wilson. At a basketball court in Forestwood Park, about a mile from where the shooting happened on Aug. 9, Tyrone Parker said he feared the community was about to hit a "another boiling point" as a grand jury weighs possible charges. “I don’t see nobody that has calmed down yet,” he said.

    Footage has recently surfaced of a speech given by Michelle Obama in which she admits that her husband was born in Kenya. Speaking about Barack Obama, Michelle says, “When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test for the very point of showing folks in Kenya that there is nothing to be embarrassed about in getting tested.” My, my, that seems like quite a Freudian slip! Barack could not have been happy that his own wife blew his cover, but I guess that's what he gets for marrying a...
  • Dan Rather Impressed That Redford Will Play Him as 'Truth-Telling'

    On Friday, The Washington Post reported what may be obvious. On his own website, disgraced former CBS anchor Dan Rather is thrilled someone’s making a Rathergate movie based on a book by his producer Mary Mapes, the Bonnie to his Clod. It's sad the Hollywood Left is handing money over to Mapes for trying to dig out of that journalistic fiasco.
  • Thad Cochran Admits Personal Responsibility For Destruction of McDaniel Campaign Signs

    Recall that for weeks, the desperate Thad Cochran campaign and their increasingly shrill surrogates found that no connection between the misguided supporters responsible for the nursing home break in and McDaniel himself to merit trumpeting from the hilltops. The three McDaniel supporters were without question not employees of the campaign, had never been paid by the campaign, and did not even have official titles. In addition, the McDaniel campaign immediately and forcefully condemned their actions. In their desperation, however, Cochran lickspittles like Brad Dayspring rushed out and breathlessly reported such astonishing and damning facts as the fact that the three...

    You already know how the national polling looks, but those numbers include the opinions of many Americans whose votes will have zero impact on the much-watched battle for control of the Senate. NPR clears out New Yorkers, Californians and Texans (among others) from its sample, focusing instead on the following 12 states: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina and West Virginia. A look at the results, bearing in mind that presidential approval rating has historically been the single most significant variable in midterm election cycles: That would be (38/58) overall, including an...

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) failed to congratulate or even acknowledge Dave Brat in his concession speech last night. Neither did Cantor offer Brat his support in November's general election against his Democratic opponent, or call Brat to concede the race, according to Brat. "Cantor's concession speech did not mention Dave once," Brat's campaign manager Zach Werrell noted to Breitbart News.
