    It started as a series of phone calls among old high-school friends and ended up embroiling 65 women in the firestorm over a sexual assault allegation that could shape the Supreme Court. In a matter of hours, they all signed onto a letter rallying behind high court nominee and their high school friend Brett Kavanaugh as someone who "has always treated women with decency and respect." And they signed up, whether they anticipated it or not, for becoming a focus of scrutiny themselves. The powerful strength-in-numbers statement, offered to bolster Kavanaugh's denial of a claim that he attacked a girl...

    Newly released text messages between former FBI anti-Trump conspirators Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show that Strzok’s claim that “the media leak strategy” text revealed last week “was to discuss ways of preventing leaks” is false. In this week’s batch of newly discovered texts, Strzok wrote Page to tell her that “the Times is angry with us for giving the Washington Post the scoop on the leak about Carter Page and the FISA warrant.” Strzok’s admission that he leaked classified information to the Washington Post would seem to invalidate Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s excuse for refusing to turn over...

    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

    It was mid-May, about six weeks after Trump appointee Mari Stull began her new job as senior adviser at the State Department’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs. As senior adviser at the bureau, Stull was in charge of making sure President Trump’s agenda was represented at the many international organizations the U.S. participates in and mostly funds, such as the United Nations and its various agencies. Stull and her boss, Amb. Kevin Moley, had just left for a trip to Geneva for the World Health Assembly. Back at the State Department, Erin Barclay, a senior career diplomat at the IO...

    Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward warned that revealing the sources for his book Fear: Trump in the White House “might get somebody killed” during a Monday interview on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal. Woodward was asked — via a question posed on Twitter — about a possible subpoena of his notes and recording from special counsel Robert Mueller or the Justice Department:

    American Thinker ^ | 9/17/18 | John David Powell
    Lots of folks like to throw around the term “fake news” to describe stories they do not like or stories that are, well, fake. I prefer the term “agenda journalism” because it does not make a judgment on the veracity of the reporting, and it can be easier to spot than the fake stuff that always has an agenda. The Huffington Post ran such a piece last week called “Gun owners more likely to vote than non-gun owners.” Do not accuse me of journalism profiling, because I believe even the editors of the HuffPost would eagerly agree they have a...

    This week, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough asserted that “President Trump is a far graver threat to America than the 9/11 attacks. The terrorists only killed a few thousand people, but Trump has poisoned the minds of tens of millions of voters.” “There is no way that al Qaida could’ve hoped to seize control of the US, but seizing control of the US is precisely what Trump, with the aid of 60 million co-conspirators, has done,” Scarborough contended. “This is a sizable enemy within that is in the process of undermining all the progress toward socialism achieved during the Obama Administration.” “We...

    This week, Hurricane Florence hit the Carolina coast of the United States. The Washington Post's editorial board charged President Trump with "complicity." "The Trump Administration's failure to sign the Paris Climate Accord combined with the surge in economic activity inspired by tax cuts and deregulation are directly responsible for any damage done by the weather in this country," the editorial claimed. "The steps former President Obama took to subdue economic growth had put the nation on a path that could have prevented hurricanes from being so dangerous. The shutdown factories and lower incomes his policies achieved mitigated the environmental forces...

    Contrary to popular culture and the media, Donald Trump has, so far, performed well as commander in chief. Since taking office in 2017, Trump has overseen the most successful economic policy since Calvin Coolidge. By cutting regulations, slashing taxes and promoting business activity, U.S. unemployment rates have dropped to 3.9 percent — its lowest percentage since December 2000. Unemployment in Hispanic communities has reached an all-time low of 4.7 percent. While Trump is arguably the most foul-mouthed President since Lyndon Johnson, his penchant for action speaks volumes. In April, Trump signed the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex...

    With the midterms less than two months away and the economy firing on all cylinders, the Democrats, and their handlers, also known as the American media, are entering the panic zone. The midterms are the last chance for the left to stop the Trump train. Robert Mueller's investigation is shooting blanks. Mueller's Deep State cronies in the FBI and DOJ may be facing legal troubles of their own. Trump's popularity remains solid despite Hurricane Florence-strength media attacks against him each and every day. CNN and MSNBC are currently at Category 4 hurricane strength against President Trump. Expect to see this...

    There is truly nothing sacred anymore. Not awards shows. Not sporting events. Not John McCain’s funeral. Not even 9/11. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has declared that President Trump is a “far graver threat to the idea of America” than the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It all began with a tweet to a column he wrote in The Washington Post on the eve of 9/11. “Trump is damaging the dream of America more than any terrorist attack ever could,” Scarborough tweeted....

    A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Dianne Feinstein is a Judas goat. She, like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Richard Blumenthal, to name just a few, are leading the Democratic Party over a cliff to its certain end among all civilized people. While there is a percentage of the left that strongly approves, in fact encourages the kind of despicable behavior we saw at the Kavanaugh hearings, people who are invigorated by groups like Occupy Wall Street, Black...

    It's déjà vu all over again, in Yogi Berra's memorable expression: senior unelected FBI officials conspiring with the Washington Post and New York Times to drive a Republican president from office. Kudos to Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit for spotting a 2014 State Department email from SecState Hillary's aide Sid Blumenthal that was declassified and released in 2015. In it, Blumenthal states as a fact that Bob Woodward has been an "FBI asset" since the days of Deep Throat. See for yourself

    A surefire ideological Kool-Aid test? Those who think Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was wounded during his hearings have heavily imbibed. Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee set out to prove that Kavanaugh is a mendacious political hack with the strategy of acting like mendacious political hacks. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., offered to sacrifice his political career in a move obviously calculated to serve his political career -- boldly releasing "confidential" committee documents that had already been released and that did nothing to prove Kavanaugh's unfitness. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., hinted darkly at the malignant influence of the Federalist Society...

    Congressmen Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan say they have seen the classified documents detailing Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s anti-Trump “media leak” strategy, and know the names of the reporters the former FBI lovebirds leaked to as part of a strategy to undermine President Trump. “There are dozens of documents that support the fact that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had ongoing relationships with multiple reporters, and that they were feeding them information to spin a narrative,” Congressman Meadows told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “It’s not legal, it’s against protocol.” Meadows added: “They are denying it, and we have...

    As if the media hadn’t already covered itself in shame this week by using 9/11 to malign President Trump, it is now using Hurricane Florence as a cudgel with which to beat him. Yesterday, The Washington Post’s editorial board ran a piece titled, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” Complicit. You read that right. But they weren’t through. “When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit,” it read. “He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any...

Meadows, R-N.C., was joined by the current Freedom Caucus chairman, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, to talk about the latest revelations involving emails exchanged between Strzok and Page that show them coordinating the release of information to the media that they hoped would harm POTUS Donald Trump and his administration.
  • ‘Catastrophic’: EU Passes Copyright Directive Including Internet ‘Link Tax’ and ‘Upload Filter’

    The European Parliment has passed a controversial copyright directive that contains provisions which force tech giants to install content filters and sets in place a potential tax on hyperlinking. The bill was passed in a final vote of 438 – 226 and will need to be implemented by individual EU member states. Critics of the directive have been laser-focused on two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13, which they have dubbed the “link tax” and “upload filter.” "The most important parts of this are Articles 11 and 13. Article 11 is intended to give publishers and papers a way to...
