  • SCOTUS D-Day: Travel Ban, Guns, Gays, and Possible Supreme Court Retirement

    06/26/2017 2:17:48 AM PDT · by Helicondelta ^ | 25 Jun 2017
    President Trump’s travel ban, the Second Amendment, religious liberty versus LGBT issues, and even the possibility of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement will be addressed, as all eyes are on the Supreme Court on Monday. The nation’s highest court should decide two major cases on Monday. The first is Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Comer, where the Court will decide whether Blaine Amendments — constitutional provisions in some states that bar churches and faith-based organizations from receiving any taxpayer money, including for secular programs like children’s playground programs — violate the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause. Another case that will...

  • Congressman, Defend Thyself: Many lawmakers have gun permits, but we can’t use them in D.C.

    When Republican lawmakers came under fire during a June 14 baseball practice in Virginia, they were trapped by a tall fence with one exit. Thanks to armed officers guarding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, only five people were wounded. But although members of the congressional leadership are provided security details, the rest of us have to count on luck. “When congressmen and senators are off the Capitol Hill campus, we are still high-profile targets, but we have zero protection,” Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama told John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center. Mr. Lott, who worked with me on...
  • Hannity calls former Fox darling out by name over fake news: ‘Are you proud, Megyn?’

    “Are you proud, Megyn?” Fox News host Sean Hannity exposed the two individuals most responsible for churning out anti-Trump propaganda — the presidents of CNN and NBC News — and by extension, former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly. He began his Friday night “mini-monologue” by referring to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC News/MSNBC Chairman Andy Lack as the “fake news chiefs” and the architects of the “Destroy Trump Media,” and then played clips of specific instances of their over-the-top, unhinged reporting. On the CNN side, those clips included Jim Acosta, Jeffrey Toobin, Brooke Baldwin, Anderson Cooper, Gloria Borger, and...
  • Fake News: Washington Post Claims Thomas Jefferson Held White House Iftar Dinner

    BREITBART ^ | 06/25/2017 | Warner Todd Huston
    The establishment media became upset this weekend after President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel. Amy B. Wang of the Washington Post led the pack with this nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first Iftar dinner” with a June 24 piece entitled, “Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House.” The often-used claim that Thomas Jefferson...

    “Tolerant” Muslims and virtue-signaling liberals are outraged that President Donald Trump, a Christian, chose not to host a White House dinner commemorating the end of Ramadan this year. Instead, Trump issued a warm statement wishing Muslims a happy Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. The statement read: "On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr." "With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values. Eid Mubarak." Leftists who aren’t even religious trashed Trump for “breaking” a White...

    Remember last week when a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate a bunch of Republicans playing baseball? We do. But it seems television Rob “Meathead” Reiner missed those news reports as calling for an “all out war” because of President Trump’s “treason” is just the kind of violent rhetoric we don’t need right now:

He touches on how the destructive party does not have any kind of message. Instead, they have put all their eggs in the Russian collusion basket.

    Lawyers fear for safety after Seth Rich murder, break-ins, 'freaky' phone calls! Lawyers and plaintiffs suing the Democratic National Committee for rigging the 2016 presidential election say they’re being harassed with threatening messages and “freaky” encounters and they fear for their safety – particularly in the wake of the mysterious and unsolved murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich – but a federal court has denied their request for protection. “We filed the motion because we do feel that not only us, but our staff and the plaintiffs, are deserving of a motion,” attorney Elizabeth Beck, who is litigating the case,...

    The families could reel off all the times they had called the media and written to Washington, but after all that trying, they had never heard anyone who mattered say anything like it: Most Mexican immigrants, Donald J. Trump declared in his first campaign speech, were “rapists” who were “bringing drugs, bringing crime” across the border. Now he had come to meet them, the families of people killed by undocumented immigrants, and they wanted to tell him he was right. One son had been struck by a truck, another shot just around the corner from home. Different causes of death,...

    President Donald Trump continues to sign legislation, an achievement he deemed “nice” Friday. The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and reforms for the Department of Veteran Affairs. The three pieces of legislation all had bipartisan support. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase from $19.3 billion in 2016 — and also asks that NASA create a plan for getting humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.” During...

    Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price Sunday tried to persuade reluctant Republican senators and governors that the healthcare bill in the upper chamber is going to make life easier for millions of Americans. Price told CNN he believes many Republicans who have come out against the bill misunderstand the Trump administration's plan for healthcare. In responding to comments made by Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nevada, last week saying that the second biggest healthcare lie was the Senate bill would bring premiums down, Price said the bill is a part of a larger plan that would accomplish that goal. "The...
