    One of the most interesting posts I’ve seen since the whole Covington thing began is this one by William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, describing a technique commonly used by leftist activists: The recent interaction in DC between high school students (one in particular) and an older activist who is Native American reminded me of a warning I once received from a colleague as to how I needed to prepare myself if I ever was in a hostile crowd or confronted.A classic leftist/occupy activist tactic, I was warned, was to confront a target and immediately start screaming that the target was...

    A freelance reporter has lost his job at digital company INE Entertainment after tweeting he wanted Covington Catholic High School students and their parents “to die” in the wake of a video involving Native American protesters in Washington DC. Erik Abriss lost his job as a post-production supervisor at INE in the wake of the comments aimed towards teenage students who attend the school in Kentucky. Abriss, who also contributes to New York Media’s entertainment site Vulture, was reacting to the viral video that at first appeared to show MAGA hat-wearing Nick Sandmann confronting a Native American man during a...

    John Kerry on his message to Trump: 'Resign' By Owen Daugherty - 01/22/19 12:18 PM EST Former Secretary of State John Kerry had a simple message for President Trump on Tuesday, saying he should “resign.” Kerry was speaking on a discussion panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, when he was asked what his message to Trump would be, according to CNBC. Kerry was at first hesitant to answer the question, saying Trump "doesn't take any of this seriously.” “He doesn’t have an ability to have that kind of conversation,” Kerry said after debating whether to answer or...

    China’s 2018 economic growth fell to a three-decade low, adding to pressure on Beijing to settle a tariff war with Washington. The world’s second-largest economy expanded by 6.6 percent over a year earlier, down from 2017′s 6.9 percent, official data showed Monday. Growth in the three months ending in December dipped to 6.4 percent — the lowest quarterly level since the 2008 global crisis — from the previous quarter’s 6.5 percent. Communist leaders are trying to steer China to slower, more self-sustaining growth based on consumer spending instead of trade and investment. But the deceleration has been sharper than expected,...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump’s actions on the international stage do not help the United States and show he is not a negotiator. “This is the pull-out, walk-away presidency, and it is not enhancing the interest of the United States of America,” Kerry told David Axelrod on “The Axe Files,” airing on CNN on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. “This President is not negotiating; he doesn’t negotiate. This is a man who claims to be the world’s greatest negotiator. What is he negotiating?” Kerry said, citing Trump’s decisions to pull troops from Syria and Afghanistan,...

    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...

    Half or a quarter of the way through this interesting experiment with an incessantly splenetic presidency, much of the nation has become accustomed to daily mortifications. Or has lost its capacity for embarrassment, which is even worse. If the country’s condition is calibrated simply by economic data — if, that is, the United States is nothing but an economy — then the state of the union is good. Except that after two years of unified government under the party that formerly claimed to care about fiscal facts and rectitude, the nation faces a $1 trillion deficit during brisk growth and...

This is no doubt by design; the nation needs to understand that we’re dealing with a criminal who has something to hide before Mueller reveals what it is Trump is hiding.”

    BuzzFeed is (in)famous for publishing the Steele dossier but their reporting is sufficiently well regarded to have made them a Pulitzer finalist last year. They publish interesting investigative pieces about all sorts of things regularly. (Some end up in our Headlines section.) They have some credibility. Which means last night’s Trump scoop amounts to an unusual wager given the gravity of the allegation involved: Simply put, either the president is finished or BuzzFeed’s credibility is.Before you watch BuzzFeed co-author Jason Leopold comment on what he has and hasn’t seen by way of hard evidence, watch White House spox Hogan...

    Calls for President Donald Trump's impeachment grew among Democrats on Friday after a report said he had directed Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer and fixer at the time, to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. BuzzFeed News on Thursday evening reported that Cohen told special counsel Robert Mueller the president personally instructed him to lie to Congressional investigators in order to minimize links between Trump and his Moscow building project, citing two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. The report also alleged that Cohen was directed to give a...

    A newspaper refused to publish the obituary of an 87 year-old woman which blamed Donald Trump for killing her. News and politics junkie Francis Irene Finley Williams frequently complained to daughter Cathy Duff about the Republican president, and blamed him for ‘contributing to her decline.’ So when ‘passionate Democrat’ Williams died just before Thanksgiving 2018, Duff submitted an obituary to her local paper, the Louisville Courier-Journal, that ended with: ‘Her passing was hastened by her continued frustration with the Trump administration.’ But staff at the paper in Louisville, Kentucky, warned they could not run the $1,684 advert with the poltical...

    Is this a joke? No, seriously, I thought this was a joke, but it looks like a legitimate story from the Washington Post. They actually did an analysis of the fast food spread President Trump had for the Clemson Tigers, who recently won the College Football Playoff National Championship. Trump had a delicious feast of McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King waiting for the champions. To normal Americans, this is fine. The government is shut down so the White House kitchen isn’t operating at full capacity. The president footed the bill for the meal. To the D.C. elites and the opposition...

    Monday night the Clemson Football National Champions made a visit to the White House where President Trump hosted them for dinner in the State Dining Room. The President personally paid for a lavish spread of fast food from a variety of establishments. “The President wanted to host a fun event to celebrate the College Football National Champion Clemson Tigers. Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed – so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods,” Press Secretary...
