    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 9 August 2020 | John Semmens
    A poll conducted by Gallup and the Knight Foundation found widespread distrust of media reporting among Americans. 73% of respondents found too much bias in so-called news reporting. 84% blamed the media for fomenting divisiveness. 75% of Republicans and 52% of independents have an unfavorable view of the media. 70% of Democrats feel the media is treated unfairly. Chelsea Aardvark, one of the so-called fact checkers at the Washington Post gave the poll results "four pinocchios." "The average person is unqualified to judge the accuracy or bias of any news source," she said. "Much of what is reported today comes...
  • Cory Gardner Makes 'Conservative Conservation' Mainstream

    Should political observers write off Senator Cory Gardner’s (R-CO)’s re-election prospects yet? Not so fast. New polling suggests he’s gaining on challenger John Hickenlooper. The junior senator, first elected to office in 2014, is confident he can beat the scandal-prone former presidential candidate and Colorado governor. On a recent episode of my podcast, District of Conservation, Senator Gardner discussed how the campaign is going and how the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) will preserve our nation’s outdoor heritage.He said, “We have been able to take our message of accomplishment for the people of Colorado from corner to corner across our state, and I’m going to continue getting...

    Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Tuesday questioning whether President Trump and other Republicans are “slowing mail delivery” to complicate a potential mail-in ballot system for the November election. “I fear Republican sabotage of the USPS, including slowing mail delivery, is a Trump strategy to make voting by mail more difficult this fall. Request your ballots and return them as early as you can,” she wrote.
  • Carl Bernstein urges Republicans to make Nixon-era move: 'Damn past time' to rise up against Trump

    Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein urged Republican leaders in Congress to abandon President Trump and force him to abdicate his powers as president three months out from Election Day. During an appearance Friday on CNN, Bernstein hearkened back to the Watergate scandal, describing how a trio of influential Republicans — 1964 presidential nominee Sen. Barry Goldwater, Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott, and House Minority Leader John Rhodes — went to the White House in 1974 to tell President Richard Nixon he did not have the support in Congress to survive impeachment, after which he resigned. "Something similar is needed now....

    They are cold, calculating consultants — Republican strategists who’ve spent their entire political careers making Democrats uncomfortable. They’ve successfully painted Democratic candidates as big spenders, high taxers and soft on crime and defence. But not this year. Several high-level former Republican operatives are giving Democrats a pass. In fact, they’ve turned their full arsenal of political tactics and warfare against their own party and their own president, Donald Trump. “We have a particular set of skills,” said Rick Wilson, quoting Liam Neeson’s character from the movie, Taken, “skills that make us a nightmare for people like Donald Trump.” Wilson was...
  • Ex-Flynn deputy KT McFarland: John Durham has 'cold, hard evidence' that will lead to indictments

    Expect indictments in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation by summer's end. That's what K.T. McFarland, a onetime deputy to former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, said this week on Fox News, referring to the emergence of "cold hard evidence" in the form of documentation. “Now, there is cold, hard evidence. It turns out that these senior officials in the intelligence community and the FBI, they all took notes. They all texted each other. They all had handwritten notes of meetings,” McFarland said on Monday. “And from what I'm hearing, the Durham investigation and...

    St. Louis, MO has been the scene of violent protests over the past few weeks. In the most notorious case of violence related to the unrest, rioters murdered retired police captain David Dorn and ransacked his pawnshop. Dorn was black. His killers shot him multiple times. As “defund the police” gained traction in St. Louis and other cities, and cities all over the country lost hard-won ground to violent crime, Americans purchased firearms in record numbers. They are preparing to have to defend themselves. It was in this context, and the rising violence and abdication of public safety in St....

    The deep state Republicans are alive and well and doing what you’d expect them to be doing. They are living proof that President Donald Trump is a genuine change agent. The world he is changing is their world, and they hate him for it. In the near future, these deep state Republicans will drop the pretense of still belonging to the Party of Abraham Lincoln and become Democrats. These are, after all, people who have grown deeply uncomfortable not just with President Trump but also with those Republicans (the vast majority) who are comfortable with President Trump (about 88 percent...

    CLAY COUNTY, Ill. (NEXSTAR) — Governor J.B. Pritzker’s emergency powers to issue executive orders to close businesses or order people to stay at home expired 85 days ago on April 8th, 2020, a judge in Clay County Circuit Court ruled on Thursday afternoon. The ruling did not find the state has no power to forcibly close businesses or to restrict a citizen’s movements, but rather that those powers are derived from the Illinois Department of Public Health Act, not under the Illinois Emergency Management Act. Pritzker’s administration has at times cited both portions of state law to enforce his orders....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted in an interview Tuesday that Republicans are "trying to get away with murder, actually -- the murder of George Floyd" -- marking a dramatic escalation in rhetoric as the Democrat-controlled House prepares to pass its police reform package. Pelosi, D-Calif., speaking to CBS News Radio correspondent Steve Futterman, said Senate Republicans' reform proposals in the wake of Floyd's in-custody death in Minneapolis were "unsalvageable" and won't make "any difference." Specifically, Pelosi said Democrats want a total ban on chokeholds, which Attorney General William Barr has also suggested he would support. But, Pelosi said, some Republicans...

    Whoever thought Tucker Carlson would be the one to blow the lid on “Republicans ‘R Not Us” and Conservative Inc.? Certainly not me. Of course I never expected Donald Trump to be the man to call out the Deep State either. But as the great bard noted, “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”   As his guest Ned Ryun pointed out, “you can’t defeat religious zealots with careerists waiting to collect their next paycheck.” The Maoist Cultural Revolution has arrived on our shores and Republicans have already surrendered. A statue of George...

    When asked to name Republican disappointments in the United States Senate, conservatives don’t struggle naming names. Turncoats like former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who helped Democrats crucify Justice Kavanaugh. The late John McCain who helped save Obamacare. No conservative would forget the most famous modern-day RINO of all – Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney. That’s just a partial list to be sure, but it’s a reminder as we watch blue state governors continue with capricious and destructive coronoavirus lock downs and major Democrat-led cities erupt in anarchy. As we continue to uncover the scandal of...

    The question is, where on Earth are the Republicans? Why has there been no press conference with every Republican in the House and Senate standing together to denounce all this violence? To passionately defend our police? They know damn well that Chauvin is an outlier, a bad cop who has kept his job because his Democrat-run city kept him despite his abusive tendencies. Why is President Trump always alone in saying what needs to be said? And when he says what needs to be said, he is viciously attacked by the Democrats and the media who, like Pavlov's dog, consider...
  • Oil bust could spur natural gas turnaround in San Juan Basin

    Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | 6/7/20 | Jens Gould
    To say times are tough for energy companies in the San Juan Basin would be an understatement. The market for natural gas is so bad right now that T. Greg Merrion has shut in nearly half of his family-owned company’s wells, most located in northwestern New Mexico. But that could soon change. If Merrion and key industry analysts are correct, there might be a silver lining in the oil crash caused by the coronavirus pandemic — it could end up helping northwestern New Mexico natural gas producers and even give a lift to state revenue in a time of crisis.

    The unemployment in the United States today is at 15%. There are over 39 million Americans who have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus.And yet on Wednesday nine US Republican Senators wrote President Donald Trump telling him not to restrict work visas for foreignors. Lindsey Graham was one of nine RINOs who want to bring in more foreign workers when there are 39 million Americans out of work. These people are soulless.These RINOs insist it will be good for the economy. Seriously? Lou Dobbs tonight challenged any of these RINOs to come on his show and debate him...

    House Republican leaders are expressing optimism about their chances to flip the House from Democrats to the GOP in November. Despite the challenges facing the party — challenges that almost all political pros from both parties agree are daunting — there may, indeed, be room for looking on the sunny side of the contest. Most political experts dismiss Republican chances of winning back the House. They point to the 41 seats that flipped in the 2018 midterms, a record number of Republican retirements, and a big cash advantage for Democratic incumbents.But a large number of those seats that flipped during...
