  • President Obama blocks Meninist account, wins Twitter [Lefties Loved BO for blocking]

    President Obama helped debut the new presidential twitter account yesterday. In the hours following its birth the account gained more than a million followers. One of those followers was not and likely never will be the @meninist account. Meninist, a twitter account that presumably allies itself with the men’s’ rights movement, was blocked by the official POTUS account. This means that the Meninist, which follows no accounts, cannot follow @POTUS, nor can it see the account’s tweets. Boom! That’s how you win Twitter.
  • WATCH: LeBron James Appears to Snub Fan in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat

    NBA star LeBron James appeared to snub a fan wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at Game 3 of the NBA playoffs Saturday by beginning to toss his towel to the Trump supporter — before throwing it in another direction, out of the fan’s reach. James, no supporter of President Donald Trump, made clear last year his thoughts on the Republican president, for whom his home state of Ohio voted for in 2016. “I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” James said of Trump voters. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems when it becomes...

    Jemele Hill, senior correspondent and columnist for ESPN’s The Undefeated, has been selected as the 2018 Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists.... Hill is known for “her provocative commentary on what’s happening in sports and in the news.” “She uses her platform to address national, social and cultural issues, in addition to sports. Hill nearly broke the internet last year when she criticized President Donald Trump. She also, taking up the NABJ spirit of advocacy, addressed athletes’ rights to take a knee to....

    As US President Donald Trump’s administration becomes increasingly close to Israel, Israeli newspapers fear the gap in Israel’s relations with leading European countries is widening. Mako News reports England, France, Germany, and of course the European Union bombarding Israel with condemnations and demands for investigation. Jerusalem, on the other hand, refuses to be moved. There are those who say the Europeans are releasing their frustration at Trump upon us, but a European official who recently visited Israel and tried to penetrate the wall of Israeli indifference to European demands said the following: “Trump won’t be President forever. Just as no-one...

    Long before fake news became a hot topic, liberals in the mainstream media were practicing their own special brand of fake news. They weren't misleading the public for malicious reasons; it was quite the opposite. They were simply showing off their humanity. The best examples of this fake news-for-a-good-cause go back to the 1980s, when two of the biggest stories in America involved the rise in homelessness (in the age of Reagan) and the national scare over a new disease called AIDS. I was a correspondent at CBS News at the time and I witnessed firsthand how -- and why...

    Chancellor Angela Merkel visits China on Thursday, seeking to close ranks with the world’s biggest exporting nation as US President Donald Trump shakes up explosive issues from trade to Iran’s nuclear deal. Finding a common strategy to ward off a trade war and keep markets open will be Merkel’s priority when she meets with President Xi Jinping, as Washington brandishes the threat of imposing punitive tariffs on aluminium and steel imports. “Both countries are in agreement that open markets and rules-based world trade are necessary. That’s the main focus of this trip,” Merkel’s spokeswoman Martina Fietz said in Berlin on...

    Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Jesus says love, because hate destroys the hater as well as the hated.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough gave us a glimpse of just how corrosive hate can be. As the show was going to a break, a visibly angry Scarborough, reacting to recent criticism of the show’s one-note Trump-hating samba, railed at his own audience: “If you’re thinking: it’s just one note. Morning Joe is just one note. Yeah! Yeah, guess what? A fire department has one focus when there’s a four-alarm fire. All right? So if you don’t want to hear...

    Maybe it’s a matter of timing. Maybe I’m not giving this a fair shake. But whenever I happen to tune in to CNN, there’s a panel of talking heads discussing President Trump and the porn star. Or President Trump and the Mueller investigation. Or President Trump and whether he’ll be impeached. Or President Trump and Jerusalem. Or President Trump and Saudi Arabia. Or President Trump and Iran. Or President Trump and North Korea. Or President Trump and the American economy. Or President Trump and pro-life legislation. Or President Trump and national security – or whatever the major topic is –...
  • CNN’s Ana Navarro Called Donald Trump an ‘Animal’

    breitbart ^ | JOHN NOLTE
    Earlier this week, President Donald Trump described the brutal Mexican gang MS-13 as “animals,” and our esteemed establishment media immediately shifted into sputtering outrage mode. But when CNN’s Ana Navarro publicly described Trump as an “animal,” she faced no professional consequences whatsoever. Quite the opposite, in fact. Basically, we now have a media that condemns those who describe murdering rapists as animals, but welcomes and promotes those who describe a Republican presidential candidate as an “animal.” On October 9, 2016, just weeks prior to Trump’s upset presidential victory, Navarro, who CNN still falsely advertises as a Republican, tweeted the following...

    “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during Thursday’s briefing after media attempts to frame President Trump’s comments from the previous day as insulting to “some immigrants.” “I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough,” she said. One reporter had asked Sanders about the president’s use of the word “animals” to describe members of the vicious MS-13 transnational gang but, instead, framed the question by saying Trump used the term to describe “some immigrants.” Sanders sharply corrected him by saying, “The...

    All through the hot summer campaign of 2016, as Donald Trump and his aides dismissed talk of unseemly ties to Moscow, two of his key business partners were working furiously on a secret track: negotiations to build what would have been the tallest building in Europe and an icon of the Trump empire — the Trump World Tower Moscow. Talks to construct the 100-story building continued even as the presidential candidate alternately bragged about his relationship with Vladimir Putin and rejected suggestions of Russian influence, and as Russian agents worked to sway US public opinion on Trump’s behalf. While fragments...

    MIAMI — The Cheesecake Factory says it has suspended a group of employees accused of harassing a customer who wore a "Make America Great Again" hat to one of the company's Miami restaurants. According to WFOR-TV, Eugene Joseph, 22, said employees at the chain's Dadeland Mall location taunted and threatened him on Mother's Day when they saw his hat bearing President Donald Trump's campaign slogan. Joseph, who was at the restaurant with his girlfriend and her family, told WFOR that staffers made insulting comments and tried to intimidate him, saying they'd hit him and knock off his cap....
  • NYT Op-Ed: Liberals, You’re Not As Smart As You Think, And You’re Helping Trump Win A Second Term

    Well, someone finally said it: Liberals, you’re not as smart as you think—and you’re helping Donald J. Trump win a second term. Gerard Alexander, a political science professor at the University of Virginia, wrote this in The New York Times and he might have to change his name after this. He aptly noted how a) cultural centers are dominated by progressives; b) how they’re causing a backlash against liberalism; and c) how their inability to see that they are causing it will lead to a Trump victory in the next presidential election. The professor noted how the Left is overly...

    While NFL owners seemed paralyzed by fear last year over what Donald Trump might tweet about them next, the man buying the Carolina Panthers might enjoy that fight. Hedge fund manager David Tepper will buy the Panthers on Tuesday, according to reports, for $2.2 billion. While most new NFL owners aren’t all that notable, Tepper is because of his opposition to the president. Trump and the NFL waged a bit of a silly war last season, with Trump grandstanding on the national anthem issue and the owners strangely worried about avoiding any more of his criticism. In November of 2016,...

    During an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof admitted that the media has an addiction to covering President Trump, leading them to avoid covering other newsworthy topics. He flushed this argument out further in a recent New York Times op-ed titled “Our Addiction to Trump.” Host Brian Stelter appeared to agree with Kristof, declaring that “I'm a Trump addict. I think I’m willing to admit that. I think all roads lead to Trump right now.” Kristof then admitted that he also suffered from Trump Addiction: “My wife and I, we find ourselves, our pillow talk...

    The big fear of liberals isn't that President Donald Trump will fail. What really gnaws at them is their extreme fear that Trump will be successful. In the case of Vox's senior correspondent, Matthew Yglesias, the specific possibility that Trump's policy towards North Korea could prove to be a success has inspired a Trump deranged horror in him.  You can see the symptoms of his derangement in the very first two paragraphs of his May 14 mental meltdown known as Why are we taking Donald Trump’s Korea diplomacy seriously?

    Chicago Tribune ^ | May 14, 2018 | by Rex Huppke
    I don’t think I have the skills to easily assimilate into Donald Trump’s America. And that can mean only one thing: I should be deported. It was a difficult conclusion to reach, but after listening to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s recent comments on undocumented immigrants, I see no other path forward. Maybe I should self-deport. That’s part of the hope, of course, that by making America inhospitable to outsiders, some will just leave. But I’m not going to do that. You know us unassimilated legal residents. We’re notoriously lazy. No, the government is going to have to...
