  • Joe Walsh Implodes: The Walsh presidential campaign will not make it off the tarmac

    American Thinker ^ | 09/03/2019 | Christopher Skeet
    During the summer of 2012, I campaigned for Joe Walsh.  I manned the phones for him, I went door to door for him, and I attended his events.  That October, I witnessed the third debate between Walsh and Tammy Duckworth (who would go on to win the election), which was not so much a debate than it was a large-scale shoutdown by the latter’s supporters.  Outside the event, I wasted fifteen minutes trying to get a sentence in against some rambunctious, spittle-drenched animal who mistook his arrant girth for intimidation. I supported Joe Walsh because he had spent the previous two...
  • NY Times Finds That All of Its Trump-Bashing Isn't Working as Planned

    08/08/2019 1:36:47 PM PDT · by bitt · 7 replies ^ | 8/7/2019 | STEPHEN KRUISER
    Faithful readers of The New York Times were probably surprised on Wednesday when reading its political column "The Upshot" as it examined both President Trump's favorability and job approval ratings. The column is titled "Dont Assume Trumps Approval Rating Cant Climb Higher. It Already Has," and it provides some sobering analysis for the increasingly hostile Trump haters: Donald J. Trump doesnt always seem like a candidate focused on expanding his base of support. He may have done so anyway. The share of Americans who say they have a favorable view of him has increased significantly since the 2016 election. And...

    ...Consumers, men in particular, must be made to feel worthless. They have to be reminded that their needs and desires are wrong under any circumstances, that their instincts are loathsome, that their very existence is a malignancy, and that they're responsible for all the world's ills whether they want to admit it or not. Now give them your money, you piece of garbage. But hey, maybe I was wrong. Maybe this was a good idea. How is it working out for Gillette?

  • EPIC FAIL: Anderson Cooper Tries to Convince Texas Women That Trump Is a Racist

    In yet another CNN attempt to make people from south of D.C. look stupid and racist, Anderson Cooper and his crew gathered up eight Republican women from Texas and tried to harass them into agreeing that the president said a racist thing by telling AOC and her cronies to leave America if they don't like it.It went hilariously sideways. I especially like the part where the CNN "reporter" asks the leading question, "don't you think that's racist?" in a condescending and outraged tone. CNN tries to convince 8 Republican women that Trump is a racist All 8 say he's...
  • Expert: Exodus from high-tax states like New York, California just beginning

    Thanks in large part to the Trump-GOP tax reform law passed in December 2017, residents of high-tax states like New York, New Jersey, and California are leaving in high numbers and the exodus is only just beginning, say experts. It took a few months for taxpayers to realize the dollar implications until they actually filed their tax returns this year, Alan Goldenberg, a principal at Friedman LLP, told Fox Business. It quantified the impact of the loss of the SALT deduction when people saw it in front of their eyes on their tax return.

    In Townhall, retired Sheriff David Clarke writes “Clueless In Chicago” while Carl Nolte of the San Francisco Chronicle admits “It’s true -- San Francisco is a mess. And everyone knows it”. Big cities across our nation have become cesspools and liberal governance has long been the root cause of this decline.  The resulting madness ranges from vagrancy to murder.  Eighty-two people shot and 15 dead over two weekends in Chicago.  Chicago’s new mayor, Lori Lightfoot, called the violence “unacceptable,” a default term people in charge use when about to accept whatever foul behavior they claim is unacceptable.  Just saying, “Remember,...

May 27, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 81 FrontPage comments Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Standardized testing is the engine of meritocracy. When the College Board standardized testing through the SAT, it introduced merit to an educational system where status was determined by family history. A poor immigrant who studied hard and worked hard might have a shot at the best schools in the land. Over a century later, the College...

    On Saturday, Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was recently acclaimed as an even better leader than the legendary Steve Jobs, carved out a morning from his very busy schedule to deliver a commencement speech for the 2019 graduates of Tulane University in New Orleans. [cut] But as soon as Cook stepped up to the podium on Saturday, his message to Tulanes graduates became the very opposite of what was expected of himinstead of presenting himself as a role model for the young graduates in the audience, Cook encouraged them to challenge older generations successes and to find their own.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | April 9, 2019 | Joshua Muravchik
    Self-described socialist Bernie Sanders has become a favorite of young voters by posing as an apostle of daring new ideas. Socialism, however, is anything but new. Its hard to think of another idea that has been tried and failed as many times in as many ways or at a steeper price in human suffering. The term socialism was coined by followers of Robert Owen (1771-1858), whom Karl Marx would label a utopian socialist. In 1825 Owen founded New Harmony, an Indiana commune, to demonstrate the superiority of what was first called the social system. The same year, Owen explained his...

    From Rachel ‘Tin-Foil-Hat’ Maddow’s glorious near-tears to Eric ‘Nuke-em’ Swalwell and his pal Adam ‘Pencil-Neck’ Schiff’s stubborn refusal to give up even the most minuscule aspects of the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, it’s more than obvious that Dems were more than just a little upset to watch their carefully orchestrated hoax go down in dumpster fire-style flames.For going-on two years now, every Trump hater from Bill Kristol to Tom Arnold had pinned their hopes on the Mueller probe to “find” the “crime” and “get Drumpf” for good this time. But, like Wile E. Coyote’s always-futile attempts to catch the Road Runner,...

    he Green New Deal, a sweeping Democratic proposal for dealing with climate change, fell at the first hurdle Tuesday as the Senate failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to begin debate on the non-binding resolution, with 42 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., voting "present." No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster. Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting "no." Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted "no." The vote had...

    As the final weeks of the GOP-controlled Congress draw to a close, pro-life voters look on with great disappointment at the Republican politicians who failed to follow through on their most crucial promise: to defund Planned Parenthood. In about a month, Democrats will take over the House of Representatives and any hope of stripping the abortion giant of federal funding will pass away. With precious little time left in the lame-duck session, GOP congressional leaders have chosen to ignore the persistent urgings of pro-life leaders. Just last week, leaders from Live Action, Students for Life America, the Susan B. Anthony...

    The Campaign Update Week in Review (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I was asked the other day by a reader why Bill and Hillary Clinton are embarking on this joint speaking tour across the U.S. and Canada. Its a good question to which the most obvious answers are a) to set the Pantsuit Princess up for another run at the Democrat Partys presidential nomination in 2020, and b) to try to rehab Slick Willies reputation, which finds itself once again in tatters in this era of #MeTooism. That must be right since it is so hard to think of any...

    Lionsgates take on Sherwood Forest suffers worst opening of any film this year with a budget above $90 million Lionsgates Robin Hood is turning out to be this years biggest blockbuster bomb, with a $14 million five-day opening against a budget of just under $100 million. This years Thanksgiving weekend has provided the most lucrative box office ever. But even with all the record-breaking success, there have been some failures in 2018. Most of those bombs, like Paramounts Annihilation and Foxs The Darkest Minds, have had low-to-mid-level budgets that have reduced how much of a financial hit their studios have...

Frankly, our members feel pretty good because they have a really good message I mean look at what weve just been able to achieve in Congress with the President in the last two years, Ryan told Fox News Bret Baier. A record economy, the military being rebuilt, people feeling better about things wages growing faster than they have since before the recession. The accomplishments of the...

    In Minnesota Republicans experienced electoral disaster that verges on disgrace if it doesnt get there. We lost both Senate races by wide margins. We lost the governors race by a wide margin. Indeed, we lost every constitutional office. We even elected former hate cult and longtime supporter of cop killers Keith Ellison over Republican Doug Wardlow in the contest for attorney general. Ellison was assisted by the fact that his disgraceful views were held in confidence by the reporters at the Star Tribune. Ellisons 4-point margin over Wardlow, however, made for the narrowest statewide win last night.

    Virginias Senate election did not take long to resolve. Incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine was declared the winner over Corey Stewart immediately after 7 p.m. Eastern. As three Virginia Republicans hold their breath about the outcomes of the House elections incumbents Barbara Comstock and Dave Brat, and challenger Denver Riggleman some will wonder if the party partially set its fate in the June 12 primary. If Nick Freitas or even E. W. Jackson had won the GOP nomination for Senate, maybe the Virginia Democratic party would have at least had to expend some resources protecting Kaine.

    What happened to the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation battle? The claims ranged from Christine Blasey Fords remotely plausible if unsubstantiated allegation of a violent attempted rape to Michael Avenattis completely outlandish and also unsubstantiated allegation of hosting serial gang rape parties. From September 12 to October 6, the claims absolutely dominated all major media. They ran on the front pages of all major newspapers and filled the hours on cable and network news. Magazine journalists at The New Yorker ran with the claims, despite massive corroboration problems. The claims were taken so...

    Politics in 2018 is a nightmarish hellscape that is largely devoid of heroes, so let us take a brief moment to revel in the astonishing stupidity of one of its third-tier villains: Jacob Wohl, who you may recognize as the greasy 20-year-old doofus who pops up first in the replies below every other Donald Trump tweet. This delightful tale began on Monday, when the disgraced teenaged hedge fund genius posted a tantalizing hint about a major forthcoming news story: Special counsel Robert Mueller, the evil mastermind behind the insidious left-wing plot to take down Wohl's beloved president, has been hiding...
