  • Huckabee Sanders to Acosta: ‘I Know It’s Hard for You to Understand Even Short Sentences

    06/15/2018 11:12:55 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 36 replies ^ | 6/14/18 | Conor Beck
    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Thursday to Jim Acosta's attempts to interrupt by taking a shot at the CNN correspondent's comprehension abilities. Acosta asked during the daily press briefing about comments made the same day by Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the immigration situation at the southern U.S. border. "On these children that are being separated from their families as they come across the border, the attorney general earlier today said that somehow there's a justification for this in the Bible," Acosta started. "Where does it say in the Bible that it's moral to take children away...
  • Sarah Sanders Shuts Down Civil War Controversy: You Cannot Erase History Just Because

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed questions from the media about White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly’s comments about the Civil War. When asked by reporters if the White House thought that the comments were “offensive,” Sanders replied ‘No.” “Because you don’t like history, doesn’t mean that you can erase it and pretend that it didn’t happen,” she said. “I think that’s the point that General Kelly was trying to make, and to try to create something and push a narrative that simply doesn’t exist is just, frankly, outrageous and absurd.” Kelly said in an interview with...
  • St. Paul City Council votes 6-1 to reject Dai Thao’s symbolic call for Trump investigation

    04/19/2017 7:38:51 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 10 replies ^ | 4/19/17 | Frederick Melo
    A proposed resolution calling for a congressional investigation of President Donald Trump fizzled before the St. Paul City Council, which voted 6-1 on Wednesday to kill the effort. “Symbolic resolutions, strictly for political purposes, when overused, become meaningless,” said council member Chris Tolbert, dressing down the proposal brought by colleague Dai Thao, who cast a lone vote in support of the resolution. Thao, a St. Paul mayoral candidate, had sought to have the council ask Minnesota’s congressional delegation to investigate the president’s ties to Russia and any personal financial benefits he receives from foreign powers. Thao’s resolution specifically called for...

    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse has carved out a name for himself on the national stage as a leader in the “Never Trump” Republican faction. On the home front, however, the Nebraska freshman found himself rebuked Saturday by party loyalists upset at his call for a third-party candidate to arise and give conservatives such as himself an alternative to Trump in the fall election... “If you support a third-party candidate, you are going to elect Hillary Clinton and she is going to nominate the next three or four members of the U.S. Supreme Court,” said Pat McPherson, an Omaha Republican.

    #BlackLivesMatter leader “King Noble” made national headlines about a week ago, after calling for “open season on crackers and cops” in a video rant uploaded to YouTube. Gloating about the execution of the deputy in Houston, he made it clear that this was just the beginning of violence on whites by his group, promising to America that “it’s about to go down.” Before Noble's website was removed...Noble created a meme to help spread his hate-filled propaganda, using the images of NFL stars Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch to create a meme with a caption that read, “when are we gon...

    The recently concluded federal trial over North Carolina’s election rules proved one thing beyond a reasonable doubt: The Obama administration and its partisan, big-money, racial-interest-group allies will stop at nothing to win elections. And using the courts to change election rules is a key part of their strategy. That was clearly evident in the federal courtroom in Winston-Salem. The plaintiffs, including the Justice Department, challenged a number of election reforms implemented in 2013 that were designed to reduce the cost and complexity of running elections and make it harder to commit voter fraud. The administration pushed a novel legal argument....

    NewsBusters ^ | February 5, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick
    Of all the stories written about the tragedy of the life of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman being cut short by heroin, the most bizarre has to be the article written by Lee "Sockpuppet" Siegel at the New Yorker. Unbelievably Siegel has actually found an upside to Hoffman's heroin addiction. He claims that it  helped Hoffman's performances. I kid you not. Here is Siegel coming close to glorifying substance abuse: "...the brute, ugly fact might also be that the poison was his elixir."  If you think this quote was taken out of context, here is the entire paragraph which almost sounds...

    Wow. This was an amazing speech by Rep. Mike Kelly as he puts this IRS scandal in the proper perspective, even questioning why the IRS Commissioner isn’t outraged by this. He tells the commissioner that this is a huge scandal because it reconfirms to the American people the things they fear about dealing with the IRS and calls it a huge blow to the faith and trust the American people have in their government.

    Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke. The company, Sleep Train, calls itself “the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.” In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy. “Thank you for your requests last week and this week...

    Longstanding tension between Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Democratic President Barack Obama flared into the public spotlight Wednesday just after Air Force One touched down in Phoenix. Brewer, who was on the tarmac to greet Obama, hand-delivered a letter before engaging the president "intensely" for several minutes, including pointing her finger directly at him, according to Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown, acting as a pool reporter for other media outlets.

    Our weekly discussion with "Ranting" Andy Hoffman continues. The lengths the powers that be continue to stoop to, in an effort to keep the system from blowing up never ceases to amaze. Today, Bank of America was hitting the $5 mark, which has been a clarion call to the elite financial proprietors to do anything necessary to keep the system alive, even if it means destroying investors around the world. When Andy studies the charts, he sees these transparent maneuvers that have been used over and over again. However, now they are becoming less and less useful and are in...

  • Energy Smackdown: Keystone XL vs. Solyndra

    National Review Online ^ | 11-21-11 | Robert Bryce
    The two big energy stories of the moment are the Obama administration’s announcement that it will wait another year before making a final decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, and the continued pummeling of the Department of Energy and Energy Secretary Steven Chu for their handling of the $529 million loan guarantee to Solyndra. So how do those two projects compare on critical issues such as economic impact and overall energy use? Even a cursory look at the two deals shows that, once again, the Obama administration’s energy priorities are — how to put this charitably? — misguided.

    Herman Cain acted swiftly to put an end to speculation over the story about sexual-harassment claims during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association. After a few hours of confused response, Cain admitted that he had been accused, but falsely, of inappropriate conduct. He claimed that an investigation of those accusations showed at the time that they were “baseless,” and he seemed surprised by the news that the trade group settled the claims. “I hope it wasn’t for much,” Cain told Fox News, “because nothing happened”: “I have never sexually harassed anyone, but yes, I was falsely accused while I...
