  • Trump Triumphs in Europe

    DB Daily Update ^ | 7.7.2017 | David Blackmon
    President Trump made a magnificent and inspiring speech in Poland yesterday, one filled with a soaring defense of democracy and free societies and even a free press. Naturally, the fake free press in the U.S. in unison declared the speech to be “dark”, in keeping with the approved talking points it had received in advance from the Democrat Party. CNN’s bed-wetting fake White House reporter, the petulant Jim Acosta, told that network’s fading viewer base that President Trump’s joint press conference with Poland’s President Andrezj Duda was “fake news” because he took two questions from conservative news organizations in between...

    While now claiming Donald Trump is the personification of an ISIS recruiting poster and having Tweeted last month that Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism, Hillary Clinton was telling a different story post-9/11. In fact, she once called for profiling Muslims and doing "whatever it takes to keep our people safe." That's what she told ABC's Sam Donaldson in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.----- Clinton responded: "Well, I think everyone recognizes we have to tighten security. We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe." Donaldson asked: "Including profiling, senator?" Clinton answered:...

    Another power couple on the rocks: Sam Donaldson and Jan Smith Donaldson. The veteran ABC newsman, 78, and his journalist wife of 29 years quietly separated several months ago, her attorney confirmed to us Wednesday. “They remain on good terms with each other and are hopeful they’ll be able to resolve their economic issues,” lawyer Sandy Ain said. No reason given for the split, and the couple has not yet filed for divorce, said Ain: “It’s unclear where this is ultimately headed.”

    SAM DONALDSON: The minorities re-elected president Obama, but I'm going with Katty. It's the Tea Party and thinking of the Tea Party and people like that that are driving the Republicans out of contention as a national party. You cannot win nationally if you don't know something about the way the country's changed, and the Tea Party seems to think the country can go back 25 or 30 years. The greatest slogan that I hated during this last campaign was “We want to take back our country.” Guys, it's not your country anymore - it's our country and you're part...

    A former network reporter was recently arrested for DUI here at the beach. Former ABC News political reporter Sam Donaldson was pulled over on Savannah Road by Lewes Police on December 1 for a traffic violation. An officer says that he’d been drinking. Donaldson failed field sobriety tests, and was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. He’s been scheduled for a court appearance at a later date.

    Repeat something and it becomes heard. Repeat something often and it becomes accepted fact. Repeat a lie and people believe it even if it defies logic. But if you’re a prominent person and you repeat something that has no factual basis, you truly are a disgusting individual. One of the accusations that the supporters and allies of President Obama have continued to assert is that challenges to Obama are based on something other than disagreement with his governing policies or philosophies. Unwilling to listen to opposing arguments, they’re convinced that every difference of opinion has to be based on distaste...
  • Bill O'Reilly Blows Up At Alan Colmes, Challenges Sam Donaldson (video)

    As NewsBusters previously reported, Sam Donaldson on Sunday's "This Week" actually thanked the anti-American television network Al Jazeera for what they do in the Middle East. On Tuesday, Fox News's Bill O'Reilly invited Alan Colmes and Monica Crowley on his program to discuss the matter, and by the end of the segment, O'Reilly was practically screaming at Sean Hannity's former partner.

Firefighters on the ground are getting help from several single-engine air tankers and a C130 plane.

    ABC's Sam Donaldson appeared on Thursday's Good Morning America to talk about the developing Mark Sanford scandal and loudly assert that it's hard to forgive Bible-thumping Republicans for their sexual transgressions. He began by deriding, "The problem Republicans have, so many of them are sanctimonious." AUDIO AVAILABLE HERE : The longtime contributor continued his attack on members of the GOP who get caught up in sex scandals: "They thump the Bible. They condemn everyone else, and when they- human- they don’t have much credit in the bank for forgiveness." Donaldson, who appeared with fellow ABC contributor Cokie Roberts, did...

    If Sam Donaldson was right, and getting “different perspectives” is important, then why did Good Morning America put together a segment on Pres. Obama’s Supreme Court nominee that had just one perspective, roughly translatable as “Viva Sotomayor!”? Did the ABC folks really think that MSM liberal Cokie Roberts was going to oppose Sotomayor? Could they have been counting on MSM liberal Sam Donaldson to do so? Oh, and let’s not forget the “expert” we heard from: a professor of . . . women’s studies. That professor, Phyllis Coontz, of Pitt’s women’s studies department, declared: “Women are more sensitive. They think...

    ABC's Sam Donaldson let a little of his inner-conspiracy theorist out this morning on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In a discussion of President Barack Obama's lessening the sanctions on Fidel Castro's Cuba, Donaldson began his analysis with one of a number a Kennedy-Truther notions that have been knocking around ever since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.... Another wild card in this crazy deck was Cuba's El Presidente, Castro. The theory being that Castro was upset with JFK's woefully planned and executed Bay of Pigs attempt at ending his nascent dictatorship, and...

    ABC's Sam Donaldson has validated Joe the Plumber's worst fears: socialism has indeed washed over capitalism. Maybe worse, Donaldson is clearly less unhappy about this than our new campaign spokesman from Ohio. Such appeared to be the case when the former White House correspondent published a rather ominous commentary at Tuesday both in written and video form (emphasis added, h/t Extreme Mortman via Glenn Reynolds):

An ad on the Brady Campaign home page for this year’s "Stand Up For A Safe America" fundraiser (honoring Democratic Rep. Rahm Emanuel) shows this year’s Master of Ceremonies is ABC News legend Sam Donaldson. Sam just wisecracked on This Week that gun owners have their weapons "to shoot...

    When I first tuned to ABC this morning, I thought there might have been some schedule snafu owing to the switch to Standard Time. But no; I eventually realized I was indeed watching Good Morning America and not a late-night DNC infomercial. You could forgive me for being confused, because the first half-hour amounted to little more than a love-letter to the party of Pelosi.First up, GMA staged an "Election Pre-Game" panel, complete with that catchy NFL theme music. Cute concept, but then ABC fielded a lopsided team. Liberal lion Sam Donaldson, Cokie Roberts - voice of the center-left DC...
