  • Trump Has Freed the Republican Party from the Media

    10/19/2018 4:51:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 32 replies ^ | October 19, 2018 | John Dempsey
    The media has battled President Trump from the day he announced his presidential bid. They have attacked him the last two years like all other Republicans, but have consistently failed. Trump’s approval ratings have been relatively consistent with a few rough patches; however, he always bounces back stronger. The legacy media cannot destroy what they did not create.Lesley Stahl with CBS News sat down with Trump for a one-on-one interview. She peppered him with questions about several different subjects. Stahl’s inquiries were “gotcha” in nature, but there was one difference. Trump is not a typical Republican president because he pushed back...
  • Left Uses Khashoggi as Latest Vehicle to Tarnish Trump

    10/18/2018 11:00:01 PM PDT · by onyx · 15 replies
    RUSH: Okay. Let me zero in on the situation involving the death of the so-called Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who’s now being referred to as a lovable, little teddy bear-type guy in the New York Times. There is
 and I know I went through this the other day. But I am continuing to see it, and this is what makes me suspicious of this story, folks. You know, I read my tech blogs. I read everything. There are still people attempting via their reporting to suggest that there is a recording of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi from his...

    Great Power War ^ | 10/18/18 | Jon E. Dougherty
    This report is certainly a far cry from what we’ve been seeing in terms of how other U.S. and foreign media are covering the Sino-U.S. relationship. But there’s no reason to doubt its credibility because some of the particulars were publicly supported in the story and by noted China/Asia experts. For instance, President Xi “has not reacted tactically or strategically,” Willy Wo-Lap Lam, a senior fellow at The Jamestown Foundation, said at a conference last week hosted by his think tank. Lam is a well-known and respected China analyst. He also said Xi’s response has caused doubt among some within...
  • John Brennan Accuses Trump of Conspiring With the Saudis

    10/18/2018 2:47:48 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 71 replies ^ | October 18, 2018 | Cortney O'Brien
    Former CIA Director John Brennan suggested Wednesday night that President Trump is conspiring with Saudi leaders to make up a story about journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance. The Saudi journalist was last seen on October 2 walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkey says the Saudis killed him, but Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud deny the charge. Trump suggested that he has no reason not to believe him and cited our economic relationship. That left Brennan with this theory. “So they’ve been working to concoct a story that’s going to stand...

    If Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski & Co. were as outraged as they claimed to be over President Trump's handling of the Khashoggi matter, would Scarborough really have opened the show by bantering with his buddies about last night's Red Sox playoff win—for over four minutes—before turning to the news?After the boys—finally—finished making viewers wonder if they tuned in to ESPN, Mika Brzezinski proceeded to accuse supporters of President Trump of being "quislings," a term defined as "a traitor who serves as the puppet of the enemy occupying his or her country."

  • Record-Breaking: Trump Appoints the Most Appellate Court Judges in First Two Years

    Although the Supreme Court has been the apple of everyone's eye lately, it's easy to forget about the federal court of appeals. President Donald Trump, in fact, has set a new record with 29 confirmed picks, The Washington Times reported. This accomplishment is big for conservatives, especially as Senate Democrats try to limit Trump's sphere of influence on the courts.“For the most part, they have prioritized appeals court nominees, and that is the right strategy,” Curt Levey, president of the conservative Committee for Justice, told The Times. The appeals courts are, arguably, the most important court level. They serve as a middle...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday there is nothing she would trade for President Donald Trump’s border wall, setting a hard negotiating stance in advance of an expected December showdown over the issue. “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” the California Democrat said during a discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.

    Veteran Morning Joe viewers were surely anticipating an emotional reaction from Mika Brzezinski this morning in response to President Trump having called Stormy Daniels "horseface." After all, Trump had once tweeted that Mika was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" when he met her at Mar-a-Lago. Mika and her fiancé Joe Scarborough have not forgotten, relishing every opportunity to take it to the President. And Mika delivered as expected this morning, calling President Trump "base, animalistic and disgusting" for his "horseface" remark. Brzezinski took things a significant step further, wondering "what could the Russians have on him?"Get the rest of the...

    She's not sure his programs will work. And he might be connecting with people's base emotions. But, subject to those caveats, Doris Kearns-Goodwin was willing to admit that President Trump has "made a connection" with Americans. Appearing on the Tuesday edition of CNN's New Day and after host John Berman acknowledged Trump's connection with his base, the historian and former LBJ staffer replied: "He's made them feel that he's on their side, which is an important thing that a politician can do. I’m fighting for you. Now whether the programs that he's enacted really are going to help them or...
  • Should U.S.-Saudi Alliance Be Saved?

    Over the weekend Donald Trump warned of "severe punishment" if an investigation concludes that a Saudi hit team murdered Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Riyadh then counter-threatened, reminding us that, as the world's largest oil exporter, Saudi Arabia "plays an impactful and active role in the global economy." Message: Sanction us, and we may just sanction you. Some of us yet recall how President Nixon's rescue of Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War triggered a Saudi oil embargo that led to months of long gas lines in the United States, and contributed to...
  • Why Vote for Democrats?

    Given what the Trump administration is saying are record achievements for a president at this stage in office, why would anyone consider voting for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections? Writing in The Washington Examiner, Paul Bedard lists 289 accomplishments of the Trump administration, beginning with the obvious one, the economy: "They include 173 major wins, such as adding more than 4 million jobs, and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsize importance, such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members." They also include two justices now on the Supreme Court and 82 other...

    ERIE, Pa. -- Jason Vogel is fired up to vote. He says his passion crystallized two weeks ago when he saw just how chaotic Washington, D.C., would be if the Democrats were to seize power in Congress. When Democratic senators smeared Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an attempted rapist without proof and angry protestors stormed the Capitol, he said, he grew increasingly concerned. "Hard to imagine that occurring every day, but you begin to realize that is exactly what would happen if I didn't turn out to vote," he said. Vogel is with his family at the Erie Insurance...
  • Trump's North American Trade Triumph

    For those on the left and right who were certain that President Donald Trump's presidency meant the end of global free trade ... think again. Though Trump's critics have dismissed the significance of the new Mexico and Canada trade deal, it's hard to deny that it is a welcome advance for the economy of the entire continent. The pact will extend for years a (mostly) tariff-free North American trade zone. This was Ronald Reagan's vision nearly four decades ago -- and that legacy can now live on for hopefully many years to come. Here's just one example of the...

    Curious as to how clueless is the New York Times? Mara Gay—a member of the Grey Lady's editorial board—claimed on Ari Melbers's MSNBC show today that President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America."Anxieties about who is white in America? What meaningless identity-politics gobbledygook! No, Ms. Gay. Trump's point is that Warren cheated. That she made her bogus claim of Native American-hood in order to get ahead in academia.

    Big Plans: Democrats are increasingly confident of two things — one, that the party will regain control of the House after the November midterms; and two, they will immediately begin impeachment proceedings against POTUS Donald Trump. Never mind that recent polling suggests that would be political suicide.

 Posted on October 13, 2018 by sundance “I am your voice!”
 They’ve gone too far.  “Donald Trump’s supporters are angry“, or “uneducated”, or “unenlightened”, or (fill_In_The_Blank). This hate-filled sentiment is clear within the latest vile,
 evil and horrific smears directed toward Kanye West and anyone who dare defy the Marxist ideology of the political left. Now the media narrative controllers are fully engaged along with their political brethren. Do not look away. The vulgar lies and filth are extreme as ideological entities utilize their microphones in a brutal attempt to advance...
  • MSNBC's Velshi Can't Comprehend Why Murder of Saudi Journalist Would Bother Trump

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Since President Trump criticizes US journalists for propagating fake news, it's incomprehensible that he would care if a foreign country murdered a journalist. That's the kind of twisted, bizarre logic that Ali Velshi employed while guest hosting Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Velshi put it to Amy Kremer of Women Vote Trump PAC that it was difficult to square Trump's criticism of the media with the concern he expressed over the possible murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudi government. Kremer patiently explained to Velshi that the two matters are entirely different: [snip] Velshi's...
