    Liberals made a big deal out of the report that Fox News has dropped its old slogan "Fair and Balanced." The liberal media always made a mockery out of it, rejecting it as "false balance." It's "false balance" because the conservative view is false. From their arrogant viewpoint, only the "truth" is worth reporting. That same worldview infects public broadcasting, which has been a left-wing propaganda project from its very beginnings in President Lyndon B. Johnson's days. They passed the Public Broadcasting Act with a meaningless rhetorical bow to fairness and balance, and liberals made sure any legislative teeth in...

The company isn't being picky about who can apply either. They're accepting applications from families, single people, and roommates.

    In with one reality TV star and out with another. As former ‘The Apprentice’ star Donald Trump takes the oath as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, former ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ star Rufus Gifford will board a plane and leave Denmark. What’s that? You’ve never heard of ‘Jeg er ambassadřren fra Amerika’ or Gifford? Well the Danes sure have. Gifford has been the US ambassador to Denmark since 2013 and was warmly embraced by the locals from the second he arrived in Copenhagen. Part of that is down to his movie star looks and his...

    Remember the weighty advice Barry had for presumptive Republican presidential candidates a few weeks back? “…the presidency “is not entertainment — this is not a reality show.” Boy, we wish that were so. However, during his recent FEAT (Far East Apology Tour) Barry Obama appeared with Anthony Bourdain for a taping of his show - Parts Unknown, a CNN foodie travelogue. The foodie and the druggie shared a lunch of bún chả and beer; Tony praised Barry’s chopstick skills and picked up the tab. In case you’re not familiar with Tony, he’s the former chain smoking, coke sniffing, heroin addicted...

    WATERBURY, Conn. — A confident Donald Trump told supporters Saturday that he's "not toning it down," a day after his chief adviser assured Republican officials the GOP front-runner will show more restraint on the campaign trail. "I'm not toning it down," Trump told a cheering crowd of 3,000 people, packed into a high school gymnasium in Waterbury, Connecticut. "Isn't it nice that I'm not one of these teleprompter guys?" Trump's new chief adviser Paul Manafort met Friday with top Republican officials and told them his candidate, known for over-the-top persona and brashness, has been "projecting an image." "The part that...

    The Federalist ^ | 4/20/16 | Mytheos Holt
    A candidate like Donald Trump should be impossible. A loud, unscripted, hard-edged reality show-style candidate with exceedingly flexible positions on many hot-button issues would be laughed out of contention for the Republican nomination in other years. A man whose serial gaffes and willingness to stick his thumb in the eye of the gatekeepers of good taste would be cooked before he stepped onto the debate stage. An utterly inexperienced politician, who describes our rights and privileges as particular to us as Americans rather than universal moral mandates, would be rejected by both parties at any other time in the modern...

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is again warning his party of the dangers of a Donald Trump nomination, saying a three-man race likely paves the way for the New York billionaire to capture the nomination on the first ballot of this summer's GOP convention in Cleveland. The former Massachusetts governor, in an interview on "The David Gregory Show" podcast says Tuesday's New York primary is an important moment in the primary fight. "If (Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ted Cruz) are both going at it aggressively until the very end then I think Trump gets it on the first...

    Tsk, tsk. Donald Trump’s effort to reset his campaign following defeat in Wisconsin showed no signs of paying off this weekend, as a series of technical failures by his campaign set his hopes back even further. From Thursday to Saturday, Trump suffered setbacks in Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina and Indiana that raise new doubts about his campaign’s preparedness for the long slog of delegate hunting as the GOP race approaches a possible contested convention. He lost the battle on two fronts. Cruz picked up 28 pledged delegates in Colorado. In the other states, rival campaigns were able to place...

    April 6, 2016 Ivanka Trump Scarves Recalled Because Of "Burn Risk" Scarves made in China and sold as part of Ivanka Trump's fashion line are being recalled because they are too flammable and pose a "burn risk" to consumers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that no injuries have been reported. The recall involves about 20,000 rayon scarves, sold from October 2014 through January 2016 in department stores and online. They range in cost from $12 to $68. A representative for the Ivanka Trump brand, which includes clothing, accessories and fragrances, said that it is disappointed for the...

    Hotair ^ | 04/06/2016 | AllahPundit
    Usually when Trump makes a wild accusation there’s some dubious peg on which to hang it, like when he claimed that Cruz was behind the ad in Utah from Liz Mair’s anti-Trump Super PAC targeting Melania Trump. That wasn’t true, as even Trump superfan Sean Hannity eventually admitted, but the ad obviously was designed to move votes to Cruz. Trump assumed culpability, wrongly, because Cruz benefited.What’s the peg for this new claim, though? Or have we reached the point where Trump is gaslighting his fans without any tether to reality? In an error-riddled statement released Tuesday night, the Donald...

    WAUSAU, Wis. — Donald Trump took his campaign Saturday to central and western Wisconsin, the parts of the state where he is most popular. On a day that alternated between sunshine and snow, Trump and opening act Sarah Palin filled the Central Wisconsin Convention & Expo Center just outside Wausau. The line to go through security and enter the rally was long, and blessedly indoors as the temperature outside fell below freezing. Below, a look at the experience of trying to get into a Trump rally. (When this video was taken, the room was already about half full, and some...

    Clinton backers who tout their "realism" need to get real about how she'll handle the shitstorm coming from Trump There are many nauseating aspects of the new reality TV series, “America Picks a Prez,” which airs around the clock on every single channel on earth: the cynical, open-air conspiracy between our Fourth Estate and Donald “Ratings Viagra” Trump. Ted Cruz uttering the word “prayerfully“ while not exploding into a cloud of synthetic piety. Caucasian patriots heroically exercising their right to punch people of color. Among these, let me nominate one more: listening to Hillary partisans explain to those of us...

He's on more than the GEICO gecko." When CNN's Alisyn Camerota defended the press coverage of Trump by using his front-runner status, Barry countered that "you can't deny the incredible impact...at this point, Kim Kardashian also could run for president and would do okay if we gave her the same level of coverage that we give to Donald Trump."

Mitt attacked Trump just as his father attacked conservative Barry Goldwater back in 1964.During his speech Romney argued that Trump was a failed businessman. (Trump is a billionaire.) Romney added this: “Wait wait wait. Isn’t he a huge business success? Doesn’t he know what he’s talking about?” No, he isn’t. And no, he doesn’t. Look, his bankruptcies have crushed small businesses. And the men and women who worked for them. He inherited his...

    WATCH THE VIDEO - No mater where you stand on Trump, it is a great analysis of how he's become the front runner. When you think of the 2016 Presidential campaign, one name comes to mind - TRUMP. Every day, news stories come out about his inflammatory comments, his stubborn, unapologetic debate strategy...and that's EXACTLY the way he wants it. Trump is no traditional politician; his tactics come from somewhere else, and that place is REALITY TV. Trump's long history in reality television has given him the perfect strategic edge in the political arena, and so far he's winning the...

    I rarely agree with Frank Bruni of the New York Times about much, but he's spot-on today: Over the last few months and even weeks, the question among many flabbergasted Republican traditionalists and incredulous political analysts was when the forces of gravity would catch up with Donald Trump and send him tumbling to earth. It was going to happen. Of course it was going to happen. You just had to be patient. You just had to be strong. But in the wake of his victories in New Hampshire and now South Carolina, the question is no longer "when." It's "if."...
