  • The Left Is Now Eating Its Own – Everybody Stand Back And Don’t Interfere

    DB Daily Update ^ | 10.6.2017 | David Blackmon
    Hollywood producer of mediocre films and general high muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein was revealed by the news fakers at the New York Times on Wednesday to be a serial woman abuser who has entered into at least 8 settlements of sexual harassment lawsuits over the last quarter century. This story was apparently real – it’s not about Donald Trump or Russia, after all – because Weinstein issued a standard progressive non-apology apology later in the day that sounded like it came right out of the Bill Clinton playbook. Which is appropriate, given that Weinstein has been a big donor to both...
  • Hurricane Response Belies Critics' Hit Job on Trump

    Real Clear Politics ^ | October 5, 2017 | Steve Cortes
    Although Donald J. Trump lacked political experience when he became president, the gods of politics have not given him a soft transition into the job. The most active American hurricane season in 12 years, rocket-launching North Korea, horrific acts of terror from London to Las Vegas – the latter being the worst mass shooting in American history -- have tested the mettle of our nation’s first neophyte commander-in-chief. Recently Puerto Rico was ravaged by two consecutive hurricanes, Irma and Maria. The very practice of naming hurricanes seems strange to me and, in this case, they have ironically wonderful sounding Latina...

    Liberals are getting crushed by the right’s agitprop, and Verrit will not save them. Democrats, and the center-left more broadly, are obsessed with numbers games. They are animated more than anything by facts, by a consensus reached among themselves that they possess an exclusive monopoly on empirical reason. They blurt out facts and stats among one another, devoid of any context but the conviction that if God is not on their side, then reason is, and so long as that’s the case they’re bound to win. It is no surprise, then, that when the world’s most thankless Clinton hype man,...

    From the professor who brought us 2016’s “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide” tweet, comes another inane and callous blurb capturing his depravity as it relates to the slaughter in Las Vegas Sunday night. Ciccariello, the professor of politics at Drexel University who is known to go on white supremacist tirades, tweeted, “White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don’t get what they want.” He explains that for the past 40 years a “nar

    President Trump gave a scary warning at a dinner Thursday night with military leaders saying, "You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm," he said. "It could be the calm... before... the storm." Asked what the storm would be, "Is it Iran, ISIS, what's the storm?" one reporter called out — Trump replied, "you'll find out." JUST IN: "Maybe it's the calm before the storm," Pres. Trump says alongside US military leaders. "You'll find out." https://t.co/NMljtvsnJF— NBC Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) October 5, 2017

    Roy Moore rode into Washington this week to shore up his main constituency: Rebellious Republicans. The GOP’s divisive nominee in the Alabama Senate race visited on Wednesday and Thursday with three of the most defiant Republican senators: Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah. And he was expected to meet with House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) later Thursday. One person Moore did not see: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whom Moore wants to dethrone. And he did not visit the Senate Republican lunch, as is customary for Senate GOP primary winners. The...

    Tiffany Huizar was shot in the stomach and elbow during the Las Vegas massacre on Sunday, Oct. 1, in which 58 people were killed and hundreds injured. She was rushed to a hospital where doctors performed a surgery to remove the bullet the next morning. On Wednesday, Oct. 4, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were at Huizar’s bedside. She said she was surprised at how nice the president was—a far different picture from what she was shown on social media. “He was super nice. He wasn’t who we see on social media,” she said. “He was much...

    A celebration of free speech at William & Mary College in Virginia took an unexpected turn last week when protesters from Black Lives Matter swarmed the stage and forced organizers to end the event. “Liberalism is white supremacy!” the protesters shouted, and “ACLU, you protect Hitler too!” The disruption occurred before Claire Guthrie Gastañaga, executive director of the ACLU of Virginia, could give a planned speech on freedom of expression. The protesters livestreamed the demonstration on Facebook and were heard shouting other slogans, including, "The oppressed are not impressed!,” “Blood on your hands!,” and “The revolution will not uphold the...

    Tom Malinowski, who served as Barack Obama's assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor from 2014 to 2017, has admitted in a Washington Post article that the United States "meddled" in Russian elections by financing political groups. Malinowski says: "until the U.S. Agency for International Development was expelled from Russia in 2012 [it helped] fund some of the country’s leading nongovernmental organizations. These included the human rights group Memorial, the Committee Against Torture and, most important, given the drama to come, a group called Golos, Russia’s main nongovernment organization for election fraud monitoring." Malinowski demonstrates his imperialistic...
  • Gun Control Is Far From the Answer as Liberals Move to Pounce on Latest Tragedy

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    After the high body count in Las Vegas at the hands of a man (likely men) with many guns, liberal lawmakers and the liberal mainstream media alike are pouncing on this opportunity to jam through their gun control agenda. This latest act in our nation’s spate of mass shootings killed almost 60 and injured well over 500 so something might be done this time. However, when looking into the data, gun control is far from the answer to stopping the next one from happening and it will not make any dent in the alarming number of gun deaths in this...
  • Where did the Las Vegas Mass Murderer's Money Come From?

    Gun Watch ^ | 6 October, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    One of the puzzles about the mass murderer in Las Vegas is the source of his money. His brother characterizes him as "very wealthy" and that "$100,000 is no big deal". His real estate holdings holdings have been estimated as worth several millions of dollars. He paid cash for his latest real estate, and gambled up to a million dollars a year, according to a real estate agent who dealt with him. From the dailymail.co.uk: The 64-year-old, who opened fire slaughtering 58 people at a country music festival at the weekend, bought his 2,000 sq ft home in Mesquite,...
  • Jimmy Kimmel Lies About Trump, Guns And The Mentally Ill

    Flopping Aces ^ | 10-05-17 | Daniel John Sobieski
    There is a delicious sense of irony in gun-control advocate Jimmy Kimmel beefing up his armed security after falsely claiming on his late night talk show after the Las Vegas massacre that President Trump had made it easier for the mentally ill to get guns. Guns are okay to protect the liberal elites but not for the rest of us who can’t be trusted or don’t know any better. The same double standard exists for Democratic members of Congress who demand their constituents be disarmed even as they welcome back Rep, Steve Scalise, the victim of a shooting where a...
  • LV Shooter Didnt Act Alone–FBI States Multiple Leads Around The World–Paddock Planned Jet Fuel Blast

    IWB ^ | Ruby Henley
    More news is coming out this morning on Stephen Paddocks, and it is not as cut and dried as I thought. This is a very complex case, and it seems everyone is reporting different aspects of the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States. Paddocks did not act alone. FBI reports there are many significant leads around the world with many flights taken by more than one person all over the world. Possibly, and this is just my opinion, many of Paddocks gambling trips could have been a cover for arms deals and terrorist connections. Was he...

    Were the ads fake or real news? IF the ads were fake, we would have seen them on every media channel proving Killary was wrongfully tarnished. Politicians and media want the public to believe Russians were peddling fake news so that future news stories regardless of source are ignored. Facebook knows the ads were real news and doesn't want to kill the Democratic BS narrative.

    This Is Not A Partisan Issue. 300,000,000 Americans Want To Know. Why Did The Killer Do This? What Did The Killer’s Note Say And Why Are You Hiding It? The fact that it’s right next to a pen, and clearly weighed down with the tape, means it surely must be a note of some sort. Another thing to note. They interview the brother Eric who lives on the opposite side of the map in Florida, but leave out the other brother Bruce with a criminal record who lives one state away in California?

    No one asks if the ads were fake news or real news. Did they contain news stories or photos of Killary demeaning Bill's rape victims? Nothing irritates a politician more than the truth and not being able to control the message. How are these ads any different than the propaganda pushed by the media or a political campaign? Answer - there is no difference except Russia wasn't paid.

    During the Clinton Administration, the Drudge Report was just an obscure news accumulator site until it became the first news outlet to report the fact that Slick Willie was having an affair with one of his interns in the Oval Office. We found out later that several fake reporters at major mainstream media outlets had had that story, but sat on it for months until the Drudge revelation force them to actually do their jobs. Fast forward to 2017, and we have NBC News issuing a report Tuesday morning, based on nothing but the alleged statements of several unidentified sources,...

    While the Slum Dog Millionaires of the Black Lives Matter National Football League are busy slitting their own throats by exposing their hatred for America, their brother thugs in the NBA are getting ready to join them on their tumble into ruin. Tuesday night the New York Knicks, who were too cowardly to kneel during the National Anthem, decided to do an imitation of Miss America contestants being interrogated by judges determined to get them to show their contempt for America. Each year these shell shocked little girls babble about world peace, climate control and longing for an end to...
