  • Conrad Black: America is being mocked by the shallow bias of its free press

    We are living through an era when the Western democracies are generally reassessing a great deal of assumed conventional liberal wisdom, and have been conducted in this direction by political leadership that is often disparaged in our mainstream media as disreputable rabble-rousing. The most remarkable aspect of it is no longer that there have been sharp populist turns in the American, British, German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Austrian and other electorates (including, nascently, Brazil on the right and Mexico on the left). The larger issue in the United States and the leading western European countries is that the media...
  • Comey memos show Valerie Jarrett's CNN daughter a useful tool for Democrats

    The memos are out from former FBI Director James Comey, and one of the big takeaways is how useful a tool Valerie Jarrett's daughter, Laura Jarrett, could be for the Hillary Clinton campaign while she was employed at CNN. CNN, it seems, helped orchestrate the set-up of President Trump when it pressed the then-FBI director to have a meeting with Trump so that the matter could be leaked and the press would have a credible reason to report as news all the otherwise slimy opposition research contained within the Steele dossier. Up until then, Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Today is Earth Day, and it is the perfect time to celebrate the natural resources like oil, natural gas and coal, which are gifts to humanity from Mother Earth herself. These indispensable drivers of modern society will no doubt be demonized today amid all the frightful doom and gloom predictions that will be launched by environmental activists and repeated by various media outlets. All the vitriol directed at these fossil fuels by the environmental community notwithstanding, it is a simple fact that our prosperous, modern, energy-hungry society was made possible by the...

    New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book coming out about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. One article outlining the book at the Times is titled “They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President” (which is reportedly what Clinton said after it was clear she lost on election night). "Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. https://nyti.ms/2F3JXcW" The title of the tweet was the opening sentence of the article. Chelsea Clinton took exception to that: "Hi @amychozick! The 1st line (“Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne”) is false. I...

    Friday on New York City’s WABC 770 AM’s “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd criticized Fox News for not taking action against host Sean Hannity when he did not disclose he was a client of Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen while commenting on the FBI raids on Cohen’s office. ... Todd then denounced a post on Hannity’s website, “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd,” which highlighted Todd’s wife, who was a consultant for Democrats. [SNIP]

    A lobbyist for the National Rifle Association says anti-gun protestors have targeted his home at least twice, including spraying his house in Virginia with fake blood, as well as protesting at his wife's business. Chris Cox, an NRA lobbyist who lives in Alexandria, just outside of Washington, D.C., claims that left-wing protestors have stood outside his wife's interior design business to hand out flyers, created an anti-Cox website and created posters with photos of child victims of gun violence to hold outside his home.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, let’s do that with Obamacare, too! – Chuckie Schumer announced on Friday that he’s introducing a bill that would essentially rescind federal marijuana laws because, he claims, he is such a huge believer in the concept of federalism that he thinks we should just let the states decide on whether pot should be legal or not. This marks the first issue in his long political career on which the old collectivist expressed a fealty to federalism. Talking Points Parrot for Senate! – Just minutes after Schumer had held his press conference,...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, predicted that President Trump will not serve out his term. Avenatti said, “There’s no question that Michael Cohen knows where many, many bodies are buried. They are going to turn him. And when they turn him, the president is going to be in a very, very bad place. And I’m going to make a prediction now, I do not think the president will serve out his term. I just don’t.”

Tired of all this Winning yet? – It turns out that not everybody in California is crazy after all. On Tuesday, the San Diego County board of supervisors became the latest local government to vote to support the Trump Administration’s lawsuit challenging the Golden State’s sanctuary state law. The County joins neighboring Orange County and cities like San Juan Capistrano, Los Alamitos, Huntington Beach, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo and Escondido in opposing the state’s open borders law.

    The newspaper’s ‘fake news’ about books About half the American people do not believe the mainstream media tell the truth. They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth.I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half.Here is but one more example: the New York Times best-seller list.As a writer (who, for the record, had a previous book on that list), I have long known it isn’t a best-seller list, and I don’t pay attention to it. But I paid attention last week to see whether my recently published book, which...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Heads had to be exploding all over the fake mainstream news media on Monday, as President Trump hit 51% approval in the Rasmussen Survey and several other polls showed the President’s approval ticking upwards. These results have to be maddening to all the fake reporters and editors who wake up every day intent on slanting their reporting against the current POTUS in their tireless efforts to reverse the outcome of the 2016 national election. Even worse for the fake media and its masters at the...

The feds are going to audit Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s high speed rail project, and, if the audit is conducted honestly, will likely conclude that it is time to cut off funding for the single biggest boondoggle in American history. Yes, dear readers, it isn’t bad enough that California’s utterly corrupt Democrat political class has already wasted billions of Californians’ dollars on this high-speed rail pipe dream, they’ve also already wasted $3.5 billion federal dollars, and are planning on wasting...

Well, cool. President Trump should accommodate him. Had the President taken this well-deserved action Friday morning, the story would have already been buried under at least four subsequent news cycles, because that’s how many the nation experienced...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Congressional Budget Office (CBO) economists now admit that the Trump tax cuts will more than pay for themselves. In a report released yesterday – and studiously ignored by the fake news media, mainly because none of the CBO economists look like a porn star – the CBO now admits it vastly underestimated the tax cuts’ impact on economic growth, estimating that they will raise such growth by a full percentage point. None of this is surprising, given that the CBO’s method requires them to use...

    The nation’s intelligence chiefs had just finished briefing Donald Trump on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election when FBI Director James B. Comey stayed behind to discuss some especially sensitive material: a “widely circulated” intelligence dossier containing unconfirmed allegations that Russians had filmed Trump interacting with prostitutes in Moscow in 2013. The president-elect quickly interrupted the FBI director. According to Comey’s account in a new memoir, Trump “strongly denied the allegations, asking — rhetorically, I assumed — whether he seemed like a guy who needed the service of prostitutes. He then began discussing cases where women had accused him of...

Brown, always under pressure to pander to his state’s open borders crowd, claimed the troops would not be used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.” Rather, he said their task would be to supplement state and federal efforts to “combat transnational crime.” Note to Governor Brown: Same thing. Thank you for your service. Tired of all this Winning...

    Two sisters famous for praising President Trump say Facebook has deemed their videos dangerous. Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson are better known as “Diamond and Silk” to their hundreds of thousands of fans — one of whom is Trump. The sisters, who are black, campaigned for him in an election in which blacks overwhelmingly voted against the Republican. And the sisters continue to defend him against accusations of racism. (“Build that wall, build it tall, protect us all before this country falls,” they once rapped) Thank you Diamond and Silk! https://t.co/qdsLUy2hqD — Donald J.
