    Former Vice President Joe Biden said as the Republicans were blocking President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, nine GOP senators told him they knew they were doing the wrong thing. “I call 17 Republicans and say, ‘You know better,’” Biden said Thursday. “Nine of them said to me, ‘You’re right Joe, but I can’t do anything about it because if I do the Koch brothers or somebody is going to drop $5 million into my race and I’ll lose my primary.’”

    Try anything Let me acknowledge upfront: I don’t know who the Worst Web Site in the World’s source is. I’m assuming it was Democrats because who the hell else would it be? And we’ve seen these Bolshevik plagiarism accusations before, where people take the most nitpicky, technical, extreme definition of what might be called plagiarism - don’t even achieve that standard - and yet toss the charge around anyway just so politicians will have an excuse to declare themselves “troubled” and cast aspersions on the nominee and his supporters.

    Yes, it's time for the formulation of a NEW Democrat AMERICAN Party. The Democratic Party once produced Presidents such as Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy. These major Democrat party leaders were fierce opponents of mass immigration because they recognized the negative impact it had on wages. And America’s center-left party presented itself as a friend to American workers, fighting for Americas interests against corporate bosses. But the Democratic Party of the past is "NOT" the Democratic Party of today. Indeed, the current Democratic Party is more concerned with defending “international socialism” than American workers. .It has now become a...

    National Review ^ | February 3, 2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    My friend Monica Crowley was the subject of a major hit job by CNN a few weeks back. She is a serious scholar, but she was portrayed as a serial plagiarist who never had an original idea in her head. The emotional toll of the uproar caused her to withdraw from her appointment by President Trump to be the senior director of communications at the National Security Council. It is the country’s loss. Over the last two decades, Monica has been one of the most effective commentators on the national scene regarding the geopolitical challenges confronting the United States, and...

    Earlier today, I went over the gun violence page on 314 and showed that two paragraphs were copied verbatim from other sources. Little did I realize, that was just the tip of the melting iceberg! (Note: while compiling this post, 314 Action took down their Issues page in a desperate attempt to hide their plagiarism. But I saved everything and will discuss the changes below.) Two paragraphs on their climate change page were lifted from a 2007 Climate Change and National Security Report by Joshua W. Busby.

Crux invited Fernandez to respond, and his comments appear at the bottom of the article.] The most important footnote in Amoris Laetitia may not be, as many suppose, one dealing with access to the sacraments for Catholics in “irregular” situations. Instead, it may be a footnote that’s not actually in the document but which should be, since one of the sentences in Amoris...

    It turns out that the most important footnote in 'Amoris Laetitia' may be one that's not there, because a key passage of the document is lifted almost verbatim from a 1995 essay in theology by Archbishop Victor Fernandez -- raising troubling questions about Fernandez's role as ghostwriter, and the magisterial force of his ideas.

    Monica Crowley, President-elect Trump's pick for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council, appears to have plagiarized numerous sections of her Ph.D. thesis, according to investigations by CNN and Politico. Politico, in a report published Monday, identified more than a dozen instances of plagiarism in Crowley's Columbia University thesis, "Clearer Than Truth: The Evolution of American Policy Toward the People’s Republic of China Under Truman and Nixon."On Thursday, CNN's KFile followed up on Politico's report, revealing 40 additional instances of plagiarism in Crowley's thesis, which was submitted in 2000. Her dissertation apparently lifted from scholarly works, the...

    Monica Crowley was recently tapped as Donald Trump’s selection to be the Senior Director of Strategic Communications on the National Security Council. Unfortunately for her, former Buzzfeed researcher (now with CNN) Andrew Kaczynski has been digging into her 2012 best seller, What The (Bleep) Just Happened and has turned up multiple instances of obvious plagiarism. Crowley is a long time Fox News host and conservative columnist, so she was no neophyte when it comes to the rules of the road for journalists and authors. Trump is calling this essentially a political hit job, but it’s definitely a problem. (CNN) Conservative...

    President-elect Donald Trump's transition team is defending the syndicated talk show host Monica Crowley, named as a communications specialist for the incoming administration, against plagiarism accusations. CNN reports that Crowley plagiarized large sections of her 2012 book, "What The (Bleep) Just Happened." In its report, CNN says it found more than 50 examples of plagiarism from numerous sources, including copying with no changes or minimal changes from news articles, other columnists and think tanks. The publisher, HarperCollins' Broadside Books, had no comment on the CNN report. Crowley has been named Trump's director of communications for the White House's National Security...

    An investigation by CNN’s K-File has found that Trump advisor Monica Crowley, who the president-elect has tapped for a senior communications role on his national security team, plagiarized many parts of her 2012 bestseller, What The (Bleep) Just Happened? The Happy Warrior’s Guide to the Great American Comeback. CNN discovered and documented more than 50 instances where Crowley, a former Fox News contributor and syndicated radio host and columnist, had lifted passages or phrases — some wholesale — from a variety of sources including Wikipedia, think tank websites, and news articles and op-ed columns from numerous publications like the National...

    Anti-Trump faithless elector Stephen “Chris” Suprun was expelled from a Texas police academy about six years ago for plagiarism, according to an anonymous source who attended classes with him. The GotNews crack research team previously revealed that Suprun runs a fishy 9/11 charity and paid for cheating website Ashley Madison’s “affair guarantee” while bankrupt, likely unemployed, and married with 3 young kids — while his wife worked a full-time job. We also revealed inconsistencies in his 9/11 story, a thread that was picked up by Texas local news after we investigated, and went viral. The source told GotNews that they...

    5 women claim they were sexually assaulted by Donald Trump A deluge of sexual-misconduct allegations hit Donald Trump on Wednesday as five women came forward with claims that he groped, kissed or leered at them. The accusations came just days after the Republican candidate denied at Sunday’s presidential debate that he had ever groped anyone inappropriately. Two women told The New York Times that Trump abused them. “He was like an octopus,” Jessica Leeds said. “His hands were everywhere.”

  • Observer: Sidney Blumenthal ‘Was Reading Above-Top-Secret NSA Reports Hours After They Appeared’

    September 6, 2016 Former NSA officer John Schindler reports on a devastating fact NOT mentioned in the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton conducting State Department business on an unsecure homebrew email server. From the Observer: [Sidney] Blumenthal’s email read exactly like classified NSA reporting, as anybody acquainted with our SIGINT would immediately recognize. As one veteran agency official told me back in January, Blumenthal’s email was NSA information with “at least 90 percent confidence.” Which was no coincidence, since an NSA investigation subsequently determined that Blumenthal’s Sudan assessment was derived from their reporting—in some cases verbatim. As I reported in...

Where’s the outrage?” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday, following Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech on Wednesday night in Philadelphia. Last week, when addressing the Republican convention in Cleveland, Trump Jr. said: "There’s so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it’s too hard to change. That’s not the America I know. We’re going to unleash the...
