    Democrats, the Never Trumpers, the media and the wobbly establishment Republicans who all seem aghast at the outcome of a single news conference hosted by Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin I was a child, young adult, aspiring young military man and aged warrior of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union. During my time in the military, I trained for—and became proficient at—combating the Russian hordes, or their surrogates, anywhere in the world. As a fighter pilot who really embraced the profession of arms, I must say that I have always held a...
  • Dinesh D'Souza explains 'outrageous' Trump-Lincoln comparison

    When Americans assess Donald Trump, a president who in many ways has broken the mold, comparisons don’t come easily. But Abraham Lincoln? That’s the startling proposition illustrated in promotional posters for Dinesh D’Souza’s upcoming film “Death of a Nation,” which contends America is once again faced with an existential crisis. In an interview with WND, D’Souza explained he is not asserting that Trump is Lincoln. “We are saying there are situations that are eerily similar, the accusations against the two men are remarkably similar and Trump can take a page from the great emancipator,” D’Souza said. The filmmaker, known for...

    During OZY Fest, a two-day event in Central Park this weekend, Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with nonprofit leader Laurene Powell Jobs and shared that she plans to help reunite immigrant families by providing transportation options. “I’m going to be tweeting about this in the days to come, but if any of you work for an airline please direct-message me because these families will need vouchers and discounted tickets to be reunited over these thousands of miles,” she said on Saturday, according to the Associated Press. As a result of the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy at the border,...

    [snip - stuff you already know] ... Amazon has limited the reviews for Pirro’s most recent book, which she had intended to promote on the daytime television program before being unceremoniously accosted and forced off set. This is why we laugh so heartily ever time the left proclaims themselves as the bastions of “tolerance”.
  • McCarthy: “Astonishing” FBI used Discredited Dossier as Source No. 1 to get FISA Warrant – Video

    Here is former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy today analyzing the redacted FISA documents released by the Justice Department last night. He is very strong in saying he is “shocked” to find that, indeed, the FBI used the unverified and discredited Steele Dossier to justify their need for a FISA Warrant to spy on Carter Page. McCarthy said he really didn’t think they would do that – that he didn’t think something like this could happen here. But it has. . . .

    Many have long suspected that the FISA warrants on Carter Page and the Trump campaign were phony, but now the proof has begun to emerge. Via @Paul Sperry: The FBI's application to spy on Carter Page and Trump campaign repeats to FISA judge the myth that the GOP platform on Russia was watered down It was not. The declassified FBI warrant application attests to secret FISA court that "THE FBI LEARNED that Page met with at least two Russian officials during the trip,"as if FBI learned this independently,when in fact it's clear it relied on Clinton-paid dossier for the informationTarget...

    It sounds like the plot of some brain-dead Hollywood comedy that has already been made too many times: Movie executive: OK, here’s an idea. You know those geniuses who Jay Leno used to interview on the street who couldn’t answer basic questions like who the vice president is, or what Columbus Day celebrates? Well, what if someone like that ran for Congress and actually won? How funny would that be!Producer: Great! We’ll get Amy Schumer or Lena Dunham to play the lead!Executive: No, I said it’s supposed to be funny. Yes, you’ve seen some version of this before. It was...

    A mob of masked criminals attacked the Asher Caffe & Lounge on 945 S. Boyle Ave. in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles—throwing feces and screaming at patrons and employees of the Jewish-owned business. The grievances of the attackers included a charge that the owner is a Trump supporter and that he is gentrifying the neighborhood against the wishes of its inhabitants. The group of attackers calls itself “Defend Boyle Heights.” A masked spokesman who refused to give his name defended “our right to decide who can live and do business in our neighborhood. We don’t want Trump supporters...

    Unfortunately, ABC, like every other broadcast network and most cable news outlets, is not fair and balanced Several weeks ago, ABC made a major public spectacle of firing Roseanne Barr for posting an offensive tweet about former Obama White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett. Within hours of the tweet, Barr was removed from her successful show. Of course, on the program, Barr portrayed a Trump supporting middle class woman spouting traditional American values. Her show found a huge viewing audience because it was not the usual mix of a leftist agenda with politically correct dialogue. Even though she apologized, ABC...

    Bernie’s rose emoji should be slapped on the identities of all Progressives Though they do their cunning best to keep it well hidden from a seemingly unsuspecting electorate, there is no difference between the Democratic Socialists of America (Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, New York City congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and the plain old, same old Progressive Democrats. Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez come right out hee-hawing as Karl Marx branded Socialists. Democrats (Sen. Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, et al) hide behind the name “Progressives”.

    In an interview in Mother Jones, a leading gun control advocate, Avery Gardner, makes the following claims. From motherjones.com: AG: There’s a case in Massachusetts that raises this exact issue. Worman v. Baker was decided in April by Judge William Young. It’s a 47-page opinion that really goes into this question of “in common use at the time” and said that’s the standard. Judge Young quotes Scalia’s opinion in Heller all the way through it and then upholds the Massachusetts law banning assault weapons. That case is going to be appealed to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. The...

If you believe that European Union’s ambitious Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager is hitting Alphabet (Google) with a $5-billion fine to protect European consumers, you’re buying straight into the EU’s political drive that seeks to replace Free Market Capitalism with Socialism and maybe should send for one of her knitted elephants. By hitting Google the biggest fine in its history, the EU has opened...

    US Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said he won't allow anymore meetings between President Trump and Russian President Putin "until I have seen a full transcript of their one-on-one private talks and am satisfied that Trump has not committed treason." Even if Schumer's demand were not an egregious overstepping of his limited authority as Senate Minority Leader, its fulfillment is impeded by the fact that the one-on-one talk was not recorded. Nevertheless, Schumer was adamant that "the American people have a right to know what was said. His public statement expressing doubts about our own intelligence community's accuracy regarding...

Go figure. – After “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn got dumped by Disney when it was revealed that he had issued a bunch of tweets that were at least seemingly pro-pedophilia when he first got onto Twitter 7-8 years ago, liberals all over social media wailed in protest, decrying the action. Gunn himself claimed the tweets were all a “joke”, sort of like Roseanne Barr claimed her single seemingly racist tweet targeting Valerie Jarrett was a “mistake” about...

    We are off to a niece’s wedding today so I’m posting this oldie from MOTUS’ Deep Vault - 2014 to be exact. This was before The Donald rode down the escalator and into the Twitterverse, single-handedly raising Tweeting to a new art form: truth-letting in 140 characters or less. Back in those dark days most Tweets were superfluous at best and annoying at worst. Their overall poor quality generated this reaction from our too-soon departed compatriot, GreetingsFromYonkers, which in turn inspired me to create a new game: Tweet Like Your Favorite Famous Person.  ORIGINALLY POSTED ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 2014...

    CHEVIOT, OH (WLWT/CNN) – A restaurant owner in Ohio is facing legal questions after offering a discount to churchgoers. "This was the furthest thing from my mind when we came up with this idea," said Justin Watson, the owner of Starters Cafe in Cheviot, OH. Watson opened the restaurant about seven weeks ago. He said all he was trying to do was stir up some business with his discount offer to churches. Instead, he stirred up a hornet's nest. "Any congregation, any religion, any area, whatever, as long as you brought me a church bulletin, I would give you 10...

    TONGIL CHON, South Korea — It’s Sunday, so Rev. Gang Suk Jin gets up at 4 a.m. to prepare for the morning service. Shortly before dawn, he steps outside, walks to a metal tower that resembles a radio tower, pulls on the white string dangling all the way to the bottom, and looks up. The bell rings. Its sound travels over the surrounding muddy land, across the bean fields and empty roads, through barbed wire fences and around military vehicles. This is Tongil Chon, a village a mile away from the most heavily guarded border in the world, the Korean...
