  • New Gov Takes a Kick at the Kans.

    The Family Research Council ^ | November 13, 2018 | Tony Perkins and FRC Senior Writers
    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...
  • Proof! Hillary’s Lawyers Did Want to Count Non-Citizen Votes

    The Olive Branch Report ^ | 11/13/2018 | S. Noble
    When news came out that Nelson and Gillum’s lawyers argued for non-citizen votes to be counted, both campaigns claimed ignorance. No one took responsibility for the appointment of the lawyer or for his actions. Hillary’s lawyer, Marc Elias, who is spearheading the opposition, denied giving the lawyer the authority to argue for illegal alien votes to count. Marc Elias, a lawyer for Nelson, told TheDCNF: “The lawyer who was present was not someone we had authorized to make such an objection. Non-citizens cannot vote in U.S. elections.” As it happens, when the judge rejected the requests to count the non-citizen...
  • Laughable Fake News CNN and Crybaby Jim Acosta File Lawsuit Against Trump

    The Olive Branch Report ^ | 11/13/2018 | Greg Holt
    It has finally happened, a member of the elitist press has filed a lawsuit against the Trump White House. CNN and their chief antagonist Jim Acosta have filed a lawsuit against the Trump White House because Trump dared to remove the press credentials of Jim Acosta for his blatant disrespect and discourtesy towards Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the president, and the rest of the White House press pool. Take a look: Acosta is an ill-mannered lout who does not deserve to be in the White House press pool. “Let the man ask a question,” is the refrain heard “round the world,”...
  • Midterm Elections: A Disaster Denied, and What is Coming

    DC Dirty Laundry ^ | 11/13/2018 | Jeremiah Johnson
    Before the 2016 Presidential Election, and both before and after the inauguration, I wrote specifically about how important the midterm election would be, and the results if the President should lose even one House of Congress. That happened: the Republicans just lost the House of Representatives. Now that the Democrats control it, not one piece of legislation will pass that is on the President’s agenda. In the supreme act of denial, the Republican party claims the “Blue Wave” was not successful; even the President declared a “victory” with the midterms. Nothing could be further from the truth, on either count....

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 13, 2018 | Caitlin Yilek
    President Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly may soon be pushed out of the White House after clashing with first lady Melania Trump. The top White House aide and the first lady have had disputes over staffing issues and travel requests, NBC News reported Tuesday. "There have been instances where the East Wing staff were not treated as equals to the male-dominated decision makers in chief Kelly’s office," one White House official told the news outlet. "Promotions were denied then finally granted after months of requests.” Some of the arguments have escalated to the president. The first lady brought up...

    We’ve all seen those lists of objects, names, places on tests attached along with the question of which one doesn’t belong or is out of place. Apply that test to the three Florida races affected by the vote fraud/incompetence in Broward and Palm Beach counties: Senator, Governor, and Agricultural Commissioner. Uh, agricultural commissioner? Why is anyone trying to steal that election, one lost under the radar among the seemingly more important national impact offices at stake. The answer is that capturing the Florida agricultural commissioner’s post would be a key victory in liberal and progressive push for gun control. As...

    The Conservative Treehouse/The Last Refuge ^ | November 8, 2018 | Sundance
    CTH has received multiple requests for a review of predictable consequences as a result of the midterm election. Thankfully, and perhaps unfortunately, we have solid references to base these predictions on – because there’s a solid frame of reference from the 2006 midterm and the subsequent consequences we saw in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010. If we take the empirical 2006 example as the starting point and overlay the 2018 landscape to modernize the predictive model, what results is a most likely scenario. First, any intellectually honest review must overlay the current political environment. In 2018 the scale of unchecked lawless...
  • Why don’t Republicans like Cindy Hyde-Smith know enough to sometimes smile and say nothing?

    Why can’t Cindy Hyde-Smith just shut up? It doesn’t look like Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith is in any real danger in the November 27th United States Senate runoff election in Mississippi; but her foolish tongue has given the Democrats something to campaign on. This is sad, infuriating and so unnecessary. The “offensive” remark was something about attending a public hanging. Of course Mississippi Democrats are trying to turn this into a Hyde-Smith endorsement of lynching African Americans. It's not likely that this will move African Americans to the polls in larger enough numbers to win; but why, oh why can’t Republicans...
  • Oil Prices Plunge Below $15 In Canada

    Canadian oil prices briefly plunged as low as $15 per barrel last week, after a U.S. federal judge blocked the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Canada’s oil industry has lurched from pipeline crisis to pipeline crisis, with projects blocked at every turn. Just a few months ago, the Trans Mountain expansion – a proposed pipeline to be built from Alberta to the Pacific Coast – also ran into trouble and is now ultimately in doubt. The inability to build new capacity capable of shipping higher levels of oil out of Alberta has crushed Western Canada Select (WCS), a price...

    While the mainstream and social media focus on what Waters is saying about President Trump, the real tragedy of what is happening in California is being told by the dead. Maxine Water’s got it bassackwards in telling President Donald Trump to “keep his mouth shut” on blaming “mismanagement” for California fires leaving death and destruction in their wake. Waters, whose screech to impeach is more ear-piercing than anyone else’s, was as silent as the dead when it came to protecting California against becoming ‘The Land of Raging Infernos’.

    Citing a violation of First Amendment and Fifth Amendment rights, cable news outlet CNN has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration, seeking the permanent return of Jim Â’s press credentials. CNN is claiming that while it happened to Acosta, it could have happened to anyone. CNN Post : "CNN filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration this morning in DC District Court. It demands the return of the White House credentials of CNNÂ’s Chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and AcostaÂ’s First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their...

    Last week a loud and angry mob of Antifa activists surrounded the home of Fox News personality Tucker Carlson engaged in lengthy chanting of leftist slogans and ended up breaking the home’s front door. Tucker’s terrified wife barricaded herself inside and called the police. While most media commentators on both sides of the left-right spectrum denounced this tactic, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias hailed it, saying “I think the idea behind terrorizing his family is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from...

    Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats). And no wonder. Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists...

    The authoritarianism and tyranny of the Left, along with its disdain for Western religion, is on display again, this time in Minnesota where a pair of Christian filmmakers are being threatened by state officials with incarceration if they refuse to make films featuring gays and lesbians. As reported by CBN News, Carl and Angel Larson, owners of Telescope Media Group, appeared before the federal 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul, Minn., last week to challenge a state law they say unconstitutionally forces them to produce content that contradicts their core religious beliefs. The couple, which is being represented...

    What was once known as the Democrat party, no longer exists The 2018 midterm elections are over and even taking historical election data into consideration, the question heard in many conservative circles is how in the hell, with the Republican-led economy so strong, did Democrats take control of the House? Answer - They didn’t. Healthcare concerns were an essential element in the midterms, but the topics that energized and mobilized the Democrat base in the 2018 midterms were not even on the radar in 2012 when President Barack Obama won his bid for a second term.

    That sound practice grounded to a halt when the most radical environmentalists took over Every governor has signed regretful legislation, or made a disastrous pardon he or she would like a chance to re-do. California’s whacky outgoing Democrat governor has spent the last eight years trying to convince the people of California that we are to blame for droughts, wildfires and “extreme weather,” and that climate change is an existential threat to the California way of life. Showing no regrets, Gov. Jerry Brown calls the people “freeloaders,” and “deniers,” and has mocked our “little green lawns.” Brown even spitefully signed...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. – So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count. Hmmmm. How do we explain that? Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there? Nah, must be something else, because your fake news...

    “There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process,” the former Florida governor tweeted. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called for embattled Broward County election chief Brenda Snipes to be removed from office, adding fuel to a Republican effort to cast doubt on the validity of statewide election results. The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office, to which Bush appointed Snipes in 2003, has come under fire. The office continued on Monday to count tens of thousands of ballots, leading some...

    For the third time since elections just over two months ago, an attempt will be made to form a new government this week in Sweden. The leader of the "Right" bloc Ulf Kristersson is set for his second try. His Moderate Party with its 70 seats and the Christian Democrats with their 22 seats are proposing a minority government in the 349 seat Parliament (Riksdag). They are hoping other parties will give their support without joining the government but the "Left" bloc is opposed along with some of "Right" parties, the Liberals and Center, if the Sweden Democrats vote to...
