    First she was covered up. Now, apparently she is gone. The bronze statue of the late singer Kate Smith has apparently been removed from outside Xfinity Live! as the Flyers looked into racist lyrics she sang. Talk radio host Tony Bruno tweeted around 9:30 this morning that the statue was gone and posted video.
  • What the Mueller Probe Really Means

    The National Interest ^ | April 20, 2019 | Conrad Black
    The Mueller Report, despite the best efforts of the chief author and his partisan investigative staff, is a bone-crushing defeat for the president’s enemies. There is not a whit of evidence that any American collaborated with any Russian to alter the results of the 2016 presidential election, and there is extensive evidence that the Trump campaign was the subject of enticements to collaborate and rebuffed all of them at all levels. The laborious bulk of Mueller’s minute description of completely inconsequential twists and turns in his investigation leaves the reader in no doubt of his thoroughness, and in no doubt...
  • Bob Woodward: Role Of Steele Dossier In Russia Probe Is "Highly Questionable,

    04/21/2019 9:21:39 AM PDT · by janetjanet998 · 2 replies
    What I out recently, which was really quite surprising, the dossier, which really has got a lot of garbage in it and Mueller found that to be the case, early in building the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference in an early draft, they actually put the dossier on page two in kind of a breakout box. I think it was the CIA pushing this, real intelligence experts looked at this and said no, this is not intelligence, this is garbage and they took it out.
  • Rashida Tlaib's Passover greeting falls flat

    Washington Times ^ | April 21, 2019
    Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigan Democrat, offered Passover greetings to her “Jewish sisters and brothers” with a graphic that included two fluffy loaves of bread. There’s just one problem: Jewish people don’t eat leavened bread on Passover. The first-term congresswoman’s fans and foes on social media were quick to flag the gaffe after her tweet was posted Friday, the first day of Passover. “Hi! I like you a lot but loaves of bread should not be on a Passover image! May I suggest replacing them with Matzah?” tweeted Ben Yelin. The blooper came after the British Labour Party removed a similar...
  • Pete Buttigieg: Gun Control ‘Compatible with the Second Amendment’

    Breitbart ^ | 21 April 2019 | AWR Hawkins
    Democrat presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg used a question and answer session during an Iowa speech to claim numerous gun controls he supports are “completely compatible with the Second Amendment.” C-Span published the question and answer session, wherein an audience member stood and read aloud a question centered on school shootings. The questioner identified himself as a millennial, “a hunter,” and “a responsible gun owner.” He asked what “policies and measures [Buttigieg] would take to ensure responsible gun laws.” Buttigieg replied: Like you, I come from a place where gun rights are taken very seriously, and that’s okay. The reality is,...
  • Finally, A Real Attorney General

    It has been quite a while since Americans have witnessed an honorable and effective Attorney General serving in that important position. The two Attorneys General during the Obama administration were hopelessly partisan and extremely protective of the President. Eric Holder famously claimed that he was “the President’s wing-man” who was “there with my boy.” Obviously, he worked non-stop to protect the President from any legal trouble and congressional investigations. Whether it was Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS Tea Party abuse scandal or the Benghazi terrorist attack, Attorney General Holder was insistent on shielding Barack Obama from any trouble. He...

    Full Header: ICYMI: America's Biggest Green Energy Con Artist Once Honored By Clinton Foundation Gets 2.5 Years In Prison In honor of Earth Day tomorrow, let's look at a company that was once honored by the Clinton Global Initiative for its dedication to stopping global warming before it was discovered the leaders of the business were actually fleecing investors for more than $54 million in an elaborate Ponzi scheme. More recently earlier this month, one of the chief architects of this scam was sentenced 2.5 years in prison, five years parole, and must repay every dollar stolen from gullible financial...

    Mere days after the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO, an Islamist umbrella coalition), descended upon Capitol Hill for National Muslim Advocacy Day, one of USCMO’s founding groups, the virulently anti-Semitic American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), returned to lobby Congress yet again. AMP and its partner organization, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), claim to be motivated by universal human rights, but the truth is more alarming; as a recent court case has made clear, AMP is the direct successor organization to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was sued into oblivion for being a propaganda front for...
  • Womp, Womp: Mark Kelly Finds Himself Needing To Be 'Transparent' About A Few Things

    Astronaut Mark Kelly, the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and current Senate candidate in Arizona, released the full transcript of the speech he gives during paid speaking engagements. The idea was to be open and transparent with voters. But here's the catch: his campaign refuses to say exactly how much Kelly makes every time he delivers his speech. They are, however, quick to tout that Kelly refuses to take money from Political Action Committees (PACs).
  • Senate Republicans tested on Trump support after Mueller

    The Hill ^ | 04/21/19 06:03 AM EDT | ALEXANDER BOLTON
    Special counsel Robert Mueller's report poses a test for vulnerable Senate Republicans running for reelection, forcing them to decide how far to distance themselves from President Trump heading into 2020. Mueller declined to pursue charges of conspiracy, illegal coordination or obstruction of justice, but much of his report reflects poorly on the president and reveals there are several more federal investigations that have yet to wrap up. While House Democrats will need to decide how hard to go to attack Trump in the wake of the report and whether to pursue a politically charged impeachment process, Senate Republicans have to...

    Pollster Dritan Nesho said in an interview that aired Friday on Hill.TV's "What America's Thinking" that there is a shift in independent voters' views of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. "Who you see shifting in terms of their opinions are independents," Nesho, the CEO of HarrisX, told host Jamal Simmons on Wednesday. "Republicans have largely been consistent in their view of the investigation, considering it to be biased or in many cases, baseless," he continued. "Democrats have been very consistent in their view of the investigation, considering it to be absolutely necessary and believing that there was evidence of...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 4/18/19 | Paul Bedard
    The White House Thursday ripped the “breathless” media coverage of the Russia collusion “hoax” and said now that it’s over, journalists should turn their attention on Obama-era scandals. “While the establishment media has breathlessly covered this partisan witch hunt for nearly two years, they refuse to cover the real scandals that plagued the previous Democrat administration,” said an official. The campaign manager of the Trump 2020 reelection campaign, Brad Parscale, added, "Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their...

    WASHINGTON — When it comes to presidential obstruction, at least Watergate started with a crime. A stupid crime, but a crime. After 675 days, more than 2,800 subpoenas, nearly 500 search warrants, $30 million spent, endless jaw-jaw on cable and countless whiny Trump tweets, we have come down to one fundamental truth. And it’s the same truth that has been terrorizing us all along: Donald Trump’s dirtbag machinations are driven by insane vanity. The First Narcissist’s all-consuming blend of braggadocio and insecurity has turned Washington and its rickety institutions into a dystopian outpost of his id. President Trump obstructed on...

    The hits just keep coming. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, who are facing up to 40-year-prison sentences if found guilty of their alleged involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal, will now be audited by the IRS, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly. According to the source, the twosome allegedly wrote off William “Rick” Singer’s reported scam services as a deduction. “They are being audited for five years on their personal income taxes, along with three years for Mossimo’s business,” the insider reveals. The When Calls the Heart actress, 54, and the fashion designer, 55, pleaded not guilty to charges...

    Fox News ^ | 21 April 2019 | Tom Perez, DNC Chair
    The report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller paints a stunning picture of bottomless corruption in the Trump White House. The report makes it crystal clear that Donald Trump has spent his entire presidency engaged in a nonstop campaign of obstruction, intimidation and abuse of power. It plainly details Russia’s assault on our democracy, and it describes a Trump team that gleefully sought to benefit politically and financially from that attack. What’s more, the investigation confirmed that President Trump consistently ordered his advisers to commit acts they believed to be illegal. More than 30 people and three companies have been indicted...
  • Second Amendment 'sanctuary county' movement expands as organizers take aim at new gun laws

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 21 apr 2019
    It was no accident Effingham County’s resolution to protect the rights of gun owners stole an important word from the very people the resolution was intended to provoke, supporters of the country’s sanctuary cities movement. Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler last month told a raucous crowd the origin story behind the “Second Amendment sanctuary county” movement, which began in Effingham and now includes 64 of the state’s 102 counties, counties in three other states, and nine more states in which counties are eyeing similar nonbinding measures. And as state legislators, emboldened by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, look at more gun-control...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A series of DUI and other alcohol-related incidents involving drunk officers is raising attention at the Los Angeles Police Department. Video obtained exclusively by Eyewitness News reveals the aftermath of a DUI arrest in Glendale last April -- LAPD Sergeant James Kelly blew a .28 on a breathalyzer test, that's four times the legal limit. Commander Nicole Mehringer was a passenger in her city-owned vehicle and appears to be slumped down on the floor of the front seat. Kelly, who appears to be passed out, is at the wheel with his seat belt on. Mehringer was...

    Despite the oceans of pixels, buckets of ink, and hours of TV and radio coverage respecting the Mueller report, there are two important things underplayed or ignored: the ubiquitous nature of Russian interference from 2014 on, which Obama ignored, and the real target of the witch hunt -- General Michael Flynn (and why). To get there, let’s first quickly review the pre- and post- report major media coverage. The Ridiculous Press Propagation of the Hoax and Response to the Report There are countless examples of the media beclowning itself when the left’s dream of a slam-dunk against the president failed....
