  • Geraldo Rivera excoriates questions of Trump’s mental fitness: It is ‘low-down and dirty’ slander

    Geraldo Rivera fiercely defended President Trump against accusations of mental incompetency Friday morning, saying the president has never been more capable and “intellectually in charge of himself” than he is now. Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Mr. Rivera was asked to weigh in on reports that politicians and mental health experts are openly questioning the mental fitness of Mr. Trump. “That infuriates me,” Mr. Rivera responded. “It is a slander, low-down and dirty. It is absolutely false.” ~snip~ “There’s not a person watching right now, who owns a single share of stock, who isn’t better off today than when President...

    Sponsors and government officials marched away from the Puerto Rican Day Parade on Monday — with the New York Yankees, JetBlue and even the city’s top cop ditching the event over its decision to honor a deadly terror organization’s kingpin. Police Commissioner James O’Neill cited the bloodshed caused by the Puerto Rican nationalist group once run by Oscar López Rivera, who will be hailed at the June 11 march by the organizers of the annual celebration.

    “Nothingburger” was one of a number of terms used to describe MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s report on Donald Trump‘s 2005 tax return on Tuesday night. In a segment she hyped up on Twitter, Maddow revealed the contents of two pages from Trump’s tax return for that year. The return showed that Trump paid 24 per cent in tax on income of $150 million for the 2005 tax year. That’s about the same amount that a married couple with two incomes totalling around $400,000 might have paid, said David Cay Johnston, the investigative journalist who obtained the return to start with....

    In a fresh insult to victims of terrorism everywhere, outgoing President Barack Obama decided to commute the 70-year sentence of communist terror leader Oscar Lopez Rivera, whose terrorist group unleashed a wave of savage violence that included more than 120 bombings across the United States. The brutal Fidel Castro-backed Marxist-Leninist terror group, known as th e "Armed Forces of National Liberation" (FALN), murdered six and injured dozens of Americans amid its campaign to enslave Puerto Rico under communist rule. Critics and victims of terror expressed outrage, with some suggesting the move was a green light by Obama for future communist...

    As we watch America devolve into the same racially charged, anti-police violence we endured in the late '60s, through the '70s and into the early ‘80s, our father Frank Connor, forever 33, would turn 75 years old today, July 12. Thirty three year old Frank Connor and 3 others were murdered while scores were maimed on January 24, 1975 when the Marxist, Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN blew up historic Fraunces Tavern during a crowded lunchtime profiling, targeting and executing "reactionary corporate executives."  We were to celebrate my recent 9th and brother's 11th birthdays that very night.  Instead his mother's, wife's and the lives of...

Now, Kaepernick is voluntarily taking a seat, choosing to sit during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner to protest perceived racial injustice.

The official news service of the Archdiocese adds the following: [D]uring the Mass, two great relicaries were exposed to the veneration of the faithful, with first class relics of Saint Cristóbal Magallanes and his 24 martyr companions of the Cristero War, as well as 13 lay...

    The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with "fairness and respect."

    Since the departure of Bob Beckel from Fox News Channel's "The Five," there have been a number of Liberal guest hosts sitting in his chair. Some are quite good, some are terrible. But only one makes me almost wish for Beckel's return: Geraldo Rivera. Okay, Juan Willliams sometimes gets me close, but he is a decent and likable "useful idiot" of the Left. When he is not boorishly shouting over those panelists who disagree with him, he is adamantly defending Hillary!'s email scandal as inconsequential. This, coming from the moron who disclosed US troop locations and future movements on a...

    “Deserted by Latinos, blacks and his feckless lazy Millennial supporters…” Geraldo Rivera declared on Twitter Wednesday that the Democrats’ wave defeat was all about race and age. Obama, he wrote, was “deserted” by Latinos, blacks and “his feckless lazy Millennial supporters,” which allowed the president to get his "a** kicked" by “millions of angry old white folk.” In addition to the racial implications of his statement (sure sounds like the description of a lynching…), as Twitchy notes, Rivera’s assertion is egregious in its assumptions about age demos: By the way, according to CNN’s exit polls, Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., won...

    Six months ago, Bernie Herpin assumed his best political days were behind him. He had lost his reelection bid for Colorado Springs city council and he was approaching his 70th birthday. “I just figured I was done with politics,” said Herpin. It turns out he was wrong. On Thursday, Republicans Herpin and George Rivera were sworn in as the newest members of the Colorado state Senate, replacing the two Democrats ousted in last month’s historic recall elections. ... Pro-Democrat groups outspent the recallers by at least 6 to 1, which resulted in a few tense moments for the GOP campaigns....

    After nearly two decades of continual victories in state legislatures, gun-rights proponents have suddenly hit some turbulence. Despite paralysis on the issue in Washington, mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado, Sandy Hook, Connecticut, and elsewhere have led five states to tighten their gun laws. Four of those states are liberal bastions, but the fifth is the formerly red state of Colorado, home of not only Aurora but also the Columbine massacre. Unsurprisingly, the Centennial State is also where the gun lobby is looking to make a statement in return – with recalls set to take place September 10 against two state...

    Fox News Channel hosts Eric Bolling and Geraldo Rivera blew up at each other on Rivera’s radio program on Tuesday amid an argument over the appropriateness of President Barack Obama’s response to the attacks on American diplomatic and service personnel in Benghazi in 2012. Bolling and Rivera battled over Obama’s personal culpability in the attacks until Bolling hung up after being accused by Rivera of alleging that the president was “a damn murderer.” Rivera opened the interview by criticizing Bolling’s focus on Obama’s actions on the night of the attack. He said that Bolling is buying into a “false narrative”...
