  • 'This Is What Kills Our Kids:' Gun Control Argument Sneaks Into SEAL Team 'Six' Series

    The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want homeowners armed is even scarier. After former SEAL Team leader Rip was murdered by a terrorist on American soil in the season 2 premiere, Jackie (Nadine Velazquez) fears that her their family could be targeted...

    For one thing, it’s not Trump country. Most struggling whites I know here live a life of quiet desperation, mad at their white bosses, not resentful toward their co-workers or neighbors of color... Like many Midwestern workers I know, my dad has more in common ideologically with New York’s Democratic Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez than with the white Republicans who run our state. Having spent most of his life doing dangerous, underpaid work without health insurance, he supports the ideas of single-payer health care and a universal basic income...
  • The Trump-Putin Summit and Reliving the Cold War

    The National Interest ^ | July 19, 2018 | Daniel McCarthy
    President Trump blundered in his appearance with Putin, but his intuitions are nevertheless correct: a new Cold War with Russia would not end as happily as the real Cold War did. Donald Trump has the magic touch. After eighteen months in office, and eighteen more before that as the pre-eminent figure in American politics, Trump’s shock value might have worn off. The political establishment might have become inured to his heresies about cherished policies and sacred institutions, even to the point of learning to control its own response to his provocations. But hell no!—Trump can still do it. He...

  • CNN’s Broken Record On Kavanaugh: He Questioned Independent Counsels In 1998 Too

    Keep on digging, CNN. I bet you find that pony somewhere in there. In remarks unearthed from a 1998 symposium, Brett Kavanaugh took the ultimately banal position that the Constitution envisions Congress as the proper institution for investigating presidents, not independent counsels. CNN believes that while this is “consistent” with other public statements already known, it “raises new questions” about his confirmation.

    At that moment in Helsinki, for Mr. Trump, the question of choosing between Vladimir Putin (ex-KGB despot) and Mr. Trump’s own experience of being set up, framed and relentlessly persecuted by the American “intelligence community” to this day, must have felt like the choice between Scylla and Charybdis. Either would destroy him, and no matter what he said, the Left would shriek the sky is falling yet again

    OK, I'm off work today and was a little bored earlier so I decided to take a brief visit to cnn.com and plug in the names Lisa Page and Peter Strzok seperatley in their webpage search box to see what they were reporting on the two. Guess what? Not to my surprise, neither name came up. I thought they were the "most trusted name in news?"

    USA has dropped columnist Cheri Jacobus after the the political strategist and frequent TV pundit insulted Republican consultant and Trump ally Michael Caputo’s daughters and suggested that they be used at “parties” by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. “Our editors in the opinion section became aware of the tweet by freelance columnist Cheri Jacobus just after noon today,” a spokesperson for the company told TheWrap Thursday evening. “An hour later after researching the issue, our editors let Jacobus know that she would no longer be writing for USA TODAY,” the spokesperson added. “We have asked her to remove the USA...
  • Samantha Bee Orders Women to 'Get Maximum Hysterical’ Over Kavanaugh

    Samantha Bee is demanding women take action against a man who could make abortion illegal. Or so she says. On her show Full Frontal July 18, host Samantha Bee ordered women to get “hysterical” over President Trump’s pick for next Supreme Court Justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. She needn’t worry – they already have. But Bee’s fuss over abortion sounds like crying “wolf” after she called pro-lifers “d**kheads” of “toxic bullsh*t” in 2016 – not to mention other abortion outbursts. And there’s also that time she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***.” (Talk about looking out for women, as she...

    CBS ^ | July 19, 2018 | CAITLIN O'KANE
    Time magazine has released the cover of its newest issue, and it makes quite a visual and political statement. The cover shows the faces of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphing together. The close-up image shows the leaders' faces blended so that it's unclear where one begins and the other ends. An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. The cover illustrates an article on the two leaders' recent Helsinki summit and the persistent controversy over what author Brian Bennett calls President Trump's "puzzling affinity for Putin."

    “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into a screaming match about President Trump on Thursday with guest and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. Pirro appeared on the show to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals” but wound up telling Goldberg she’s suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” “Listen, I don’t have 'Trump derangement,'” Goldberg fired back. “Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.'” “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with,” she continued. “But I...

    FULL TITLE: Instagram Censors Planned Parenthood Meme: “We Kill More Black Lives in 2 Weeks Than the KKK Lynched in a Century” House conservatives took some social media companies to task for political bias earlier today — and not a moment too soon, based on what’s happening to people like Ryan Bomberger. The head of the Radiance Foundation is just the latest victim of the censorship taking place on platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If these tech giants are offended by the truth of abortion, then they’re taking their anger out on the wrong people. If you know...

    LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Pizza mogul John Schnatter is making major moves to repair his reputation and regain his position on the Papa John's board. WAVE 3 News learned Schnatter has now hired Hollywood power lawyer Patricia Glaser, after he admitted to using the N-word during a conference call in a way he maintains was mischaracterized. Glaser has a lot of experience representing big names including disgraced movie executive Harvey Weinstein, Keith Olbermann, Conan O'Brien and celebrity chef Paula Deen after her N-word scandal. WAVE 3 News obtained a letter Glaser sent to the Papa John's Board of Directors on...

    The Atlantic ^ | July 17, 2018 | Danielle Pletka, senior vice president the American Enterprise Institute
    President Donald Trump’s press conference with Russia’s Vladimir Putin was a debacle. The president went from an anodyne prepared statement to a question-and-answer session that ping-ponged between stunning and appalling (with a bit of emetic thrown in for good measure). Suffice it to say, it was a new low from a chief executive who is redefining the term. But the reaction on Twitter from the foreign-policy establishment was almost as untethered as Trump himself. John Brennan, who served as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency under Obama, tweeted: Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds...

    You know those stories that make you roll your eyes so far back in your head you think they might get stuck there? This hot mess from POLITICO is one of those stories:From POLITICO (sorry!): Maybe you’ve never heard of Hillsdale. Or maybe you hadn’t heard about the school before it precipitated a floor fight in the Senate during tax bill negotiations last fall. But the tiny Christian college with a graduate school in statesmanship, a strong conservative bent and roots in an anti-slavery Baptist church, has long been a treasured institution in right-of-center circles—known for its required classical liberal...

    The Hill ^ | July 17, 2018 | Mark Davis
    Disgraceful. Embarrassing. A complete lack of grasp of the situation. Such were the observations about President Trump’s performance at the joint press conference with Vladimir Putin. Everyone is free to like or dislike the way Trump navigates the world, but I would suggest those descriptions are more suited to the swarm of wild overreaction. It has become a familiar rhythm for the President to do or say something, only to be attacked reflexively by his harshest opponents. But the Monday festival of totally wrongheaded analysis ensnared even the occasionally sympathetic. One could expect the bug-eyed calls for impeachment, and the...

    If you're a conservative, a Trump fan*, or pretty much anybody else in 2018 who doesn't like the Democrats or their agenda, you probably get scolded whenever you mock Hillary Clinton. Her voters are still very protective of her: "Why can't you leave her alone? Why are you so obsessed with her?" Well, she probably wouldn't catch so much flak for refusing to go away if she would just, um, go away. But she continues to show up anywhere there's a microphone, an audience full of people who cried on election night, and a check with a bunch of zeroes...
