  • TRUMP DOES IT AGAIN!… Goes Off on CNN Reporter at Fundraiser! (VIDEO)

    08/29/2015 7:44:07 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 91 replies
    Trump held a fundraiser tonight in Norton, Massachusetts with hundreds of supporters and veterans. CNN asked the first question and asked about the few protesters outside. Trump let the CNN reporter have it!“Well, I don’t see a lot of protesters. I see thousands of people. And there are a few protesters. And, I figured you’d ask that question because you know, that’s the way it is. CNN is terrible. CNN. Are you with CNN. Are you with CNN. You people do not cover us accurately. So they have a few protesters outside. And thousands of people. And the first question...

    Both men wanted a race war. Both men committed murder in an attempt to spark it. But both men’s stories are treated very differently by the media.The world is shocked by the killing of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward, of small Virginia station WDBJ (a CBS affiliate), by disgruntled and disturbed ex-co-worker Vester Lee Flanagan II, who not incidentally is homosexual. By interrupting a live TV interview and committing his act on air, Flanagan, 41, got the attention he apparently craved and gave the world something unforgettable: real-life murder appearing movie-style, in deadly living color. And...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo - A billboard on the side of us 50 just south of the Colorado River, is causing quite a stir in our community. The controversial image depicting Donald trump as a dragon slayer is attached to the side of a private building in full view of the highway where thousands of people pass each day. The billboard is 10 ft high and 20 ft. wide and is attached to a building just south of the US 50 bridge over the Colorado River on route to orchard mesa. The man behind the billboard is Arvid Mosnes. He commissioned...

    At one point in Laura Hillenbrand’s World War II book Unbroken, the top turret gunner of a B-24 bomber over the Pacific stays doggedly at his post and keeps on firing, trying to ward off an attacking Japanese fighter plane. Eventually he succeeds. Staying focused on saving the lives of one’s comrades under such terrifying conditions is admirable enough. Stanley Pillsbury did it after one of his feet had been practically blown off by a cannon shell from the enemy aircraft. When they got his boot off after the engagement, his foot was shredded. His big toe stayed inside the...
  • When Will ABC News Release the Full Vester Flanagan Manifesto?

    PJM ^ | August 28, 2015 | J. Christian Adams
    Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News. ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto. Yet we still haven’t seen the full document. ABC hasn’t made it available. Why? John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated. But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial...

    We thought the feud was over. We thought wrong. “Fox News host Megyn Kelly is no stranger to Trump’s bullish tactics,” notes the Fusion press release touting Ramos’s guest hit tonight. Indeed. She’s tweaking Trump here, obviously, by giving his immigration nemesis a platform to call Trump a child-deporting fascist and grieve over how his right to grandstand on Trump’s dime was brutally suppressed for five minutes or whatever. Here’s your open thread to gripe, grumble, and groan about the great Fox News/amnesty/anti-Trump alliance. Easy prediction, though: Kelly will go out of her way to challenge Ramos on whether he...

If you’re an on-air personality there, are you allowed to use your personal social media accounts to express opinions about non-sports matters? Yes? No? Or, as appears to be the case, are you permitted to do so as long as someone doesn’t arbitrarily decide after the fact that what you said was “controversial” and thus unacceptable?

    In his latest showdown, Donald Trump ordered Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out of a news conference Tuesday, telling him to “go back to Univision.” Ramos, who like Trump is known for his confrontational style, didn’t back down until he was escorted out of the room by security. Eventually, Ramos was invited back, where he sparred with Trump over the Republican candidate’s immigration proposals. Trump has had some high-profile tiffs with media figures recently, battling publicly with Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly, and on Tuesday with the network’s chairman, Roger Ailes. But prodding Ramos, who has been called the Spanish-language...

Every time the market crashes, there are huge up days, huge down days and giant waves of market momentum. Even though the Dow was up 619 points on Wednesday, overall we are still down more than 2,000 points from the peak of the market....

    From Gabriel Sherman writing for New York Magazine: When it comes to dealing with rogue states, Fox News has a firm editorial philosophy: You don’t negotiate. Roger Ailes is learning that the same logic applies to a rogue candidate. ..... It’s now harder to see an end to the Trump-Fox war soon. As I reported this week, Trump’s poll numbers remain strong and he’s building a robust campaign operation, which is a threat to Ailes’s political project: “Roger says Trump is unelectable. His goal here is to save the country,” a source close to Ailes told me.

    Progressive media ridiculed a handful of harmless middle aged and senior citizens peacefully protesting outside the gates of the nation’s first Arabic Immersion Magnet School in the Houston Independent School District (ISD). The Arabic immersion school opened yesterday for 132 pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. The protest group numbered about 30 people, at its height. They waved American and Israeli flags in solidarity of Western and Judeo-Christian values. Some had held two flags, others, held homemade protest signs that read: “Everything I ever cared to know about Islam was taught to me by Muslims on 9-11-2001,” “American Schools, American Kids,” and...

And according to The New York Times, nearly everyone they talk about in this article who either is or might be opposing the deal is doing so because of their loyalty to Israel, or because they come from a state where “anti-Obama sentiments” are “feverish.” It’s never based on the merits. That’s only the people who support the...

When asked a few months ago whether he would have authorized the 2003 war in Iraq, as his brother President George W. Bush did, Republican candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush first said yes, "I would have." Then, when criticized days later, the younger Bush did a 180: "So here's the deal. If we're all supposed...

    Donald Trump’s performance in his first presidential debate and his comments afterward showed that his unique skills for amassing a fortune, offering headline-grabbing retorts and ranking first in voter polls cannot protect him from his penchant for ill-advised public criticism of others. Trump’s recent verbal barbs have targeted the Fox News TV moderators of his first presidential debate, as well as fellow Republicans, Sen. John McCain, of Arizona, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina. Regardless of Trump’s opinion of his critics, he runs the risk of drawing attention away from his serious attempts to raise valid issues such as...

Suspect gets out of the car and comes aggressively at the officer. The fact that the suspect has no gun and the cop is packing doesn’t cause the suspect to hesitate in the slightest. In fact, it’s to his advantage, and he knows it. Because if the cop fires his weapon to protect...

      The only thing new is, the current media incursion into politics--trying to dominate instead of report--is coming from "the right".  The 4th Estate, of course, being the media, the 2nd being The Lords Temporal (either, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros & the Koch Bros., et cetera; or the Senate), and the 3rd being Commons (Congress). History says, there have already been two main incursions of media to destabilize American politics.This is roughly analogous to the military making an incursion into politics, as with Gen. Douglas MacArthur of Old Soldiers Never Die, and Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler of Jules Archer's...

    Night is fast falling on America The Beautiful Somewhat like Yankee Doodle of folklore fame, Donald Trump came riding into town on a pony, while the mainstream media and friends accused him of charging in on a war horse. Trump’s pony express is delivering the truth at a time when the politically correct legions make it safer to hold onto one’s tongue; a time when Reality TV is supplanting real life with fantasy. But just like the truth when it’s finally unearthed, tellers of the truth aren’t always pretty. They sometimes come with wobbly knees; sport combed-over hair. Getting up...

    Josh, in Israel, emailed me. He said they are “living under the specter of the Iran deal and see where this is all heading.” They are extremely concerned. Josh said, “For starters what even gave him the right to lead such “negotiations” on behalf of the world? Who anointed him king, anyway?” Josh concluded, “Either Obama’s deal is insane or deliberate.” Well, Josh, the US mainstream media has for all intents and purposes made Obama king. Concerned Americans say we are starting to resemble a banana republic (with a dishonest government ignoring laws). The MSM aggressively promotes whatever Obama wants...

    Last week’s Republican primary debates have quickly become a cultural and political phenomenon. Even progressive pundits have been forced to acknowledge the high quality of the Fox News moderators, the toughness of their questions, and the sheer entertaining excitement of the shows. Contrary to the usual soporific political debates, with robotic recitations of prefabricated talking points, this one had fireworks and substance. Let’s hope this new paradigm for presidential debates carries through all the way to next year’s presidential debates. But there’s another value to the debates. A lot of progressive received wisdom was exploded last Thursday night. First is...

    TV's Campaign '16 News: An Avalanche of Trump Coverage, Not Much for Others Published: 8/4/2015 12:27 PM ET By Rich Noyes Research Director There are currently 17 declared candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, but viewers of the three broadcast evening news shows this year have mainly heard about just two of them: former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and New York businessman Donald Trump. And even though Trump received virtually no TV news attention until he officially declared on June 16, he’s received far more network news coverage in just the last six weeks than Bush has received all...

    To many, it seems contrary to intuition that Fox News could be one of the Clinton family’s largest donors for the better part of two decades. Check your intuition at the door- it’s true. According to Federal Election Commission and Center for Responsive Politics data, 21st Century Fox News Corp. has donated more than $3 million to Clinton family accounts. Overall, this lands Fox as the Clinton family’s 9th largest donor over the course of the family’s political involvement. (Table of Donors)
