  • Editorial: Anti-Trump bias on display

    The Boston Herald ^ | 04-26-2018 | Herald Staff
    By now we know that the national­ media and certainly the establishment press in Washington, D.C., are largely biased against President Trump. What has changed in the last two years is their utter inability to execute their slanted coverage with any degree of subtlety. Indeed, so hasty and passionate are they in their zeal to denigrate the president that they routinely neglect to construct any ruse of objectivity. For instance, yesterday, when French President Emmanuel Macron addressed a joint meeting of Congress, CNN bailed out of live coverage. Not only was the Macron trip to Washington the first official state...

    Kanye West‘s recent tweets praising Donald Trump have caused controversy online, with many of the rapper’s music peers speaking out about their thoughts on the matter. On Twitter over the past few days, Kanye has said that he “loves” Trump, called the US President his “brother”, shared a photo of himself wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and hit out at Barack Obama. Trump himself has responded by thanking West and saying that his recent Twitter activity had been “very cool”.
  • Vanity - Comey book drops from #1 to #3 on Amazon within a week.

    Looks like James Comey's fifteen minutes of fame have now disappeared and, openly morphed into fifty years of shame. His book has dropped in just about a week in release from #1 to #3 on Amazon.com. Without listing the ABCs of the Comey "criminal" escapades, the chickens, it appears have come home to roost. I hear the birds (FBI Agents) are singing loud and clear, for all Americans to hear. Dropping dime on Comey, McCabe. Obama, Clinton, Holder Lynch Clapper, Brennan, etc. is now in full "vogue" fashion. I guess the old saying that "whatever goes around, comes around" still...

    First lady Melania Trump’s menu for the state dinner with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte was described as “froo-froo [sic] garbage” by a conservative pundit, who suggested the fare was out of touch.In a tweet, Erick Erickson mocked the menu selected by Melania—who eschewed an event planner in favor of organizing the occasion herself—which included a rack of lamb and jambalaya...

  • Student Of Racist “Promposal” Apologizes, Quits All School Events, BLM Threatens

    04/25/2018 1:52:48 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 24 replies
    The Florida high school student who made a racist sign asking his girlfriend to the prom has issued a profuse apology. His family issued a more profuse apology. But the promposal brouhaha is forcing him to forgo all the rest of his high school activities — a decision made in conjunction with the high school administration. There will be no prom, no graduation experience or anything else for him. So, quite a lot of consequences and punishment for a racist, but likely just stupid teenage boy stunt to get a girl. Lesson learned, move on, right? We all know that...

    Justice Elena Kagan (Screen Capture) (CNSNews.com) - In oral arguments in the case of Trump v. Hawaii today, Justice Elena Kagan suggested as a hypothetical that the United States elects a president “who is a vehement anti-Semite and says all kinds of denigrating comments about Jews,” and that, once in office, this president issues “a proclamation that says no one shall enter from Israel.” “This is an out-of-the-box kind of President in my hypothetical,” Kagan said in an exchange with Solicitor General Noel Francisco as people in the courtroom laughed, according to the transcript and audio recording of the...

    Trump announced Monday he has directed the Department of Homeland Security to block large groups of migrants who have begun to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border and apply for asylum as refugees from Central America. "Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL," Trump tweeted Monday morning. Trump also said negotiations over a new North American Free...

    During arguments at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, the justices seemed, by a narrow margin, to be leaning toward upholding the the third iteration of the Trump travel ban. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often the deciding vote in close cases, for example, made repeated comments suggesting that the court does not usually second-guess a president's national security decisions — even in the context of an immigration law that is seen as banning discrimination based on nationality. If the court does decide in favor of the government — a decision is expected in June — it would be a big...

    "This is a memo that was sent to President Trump on December 19 2017 and this memo was is what is currently being discussed and represents one of the greatest examples of government betrayal in the history of the United States. This is the intelligence which defined the illegal activity by the Department of Justice by the FBI under Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, James Comey, Peter struck, Andrew McCabe Jenny Rhee and a variety of other people that were involved in a coup d’etat against President Trump. So this memo was sent out on December 19th and it originated actually...

    A Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination. Philadelphia accountant Greg Piatek, 31, was bounced from a West Village watering hole in January 2017, just after Trump took the oath of office, for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap, according to his lawsuit over the incident. “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims the staff of The Happiest Hour on W....

    After feuding with his sons’ coach, LaVar Ball took his boys and went home. Again. As if this was ever going to end any other way. LaVar Ball yanked his sons LiAngelo and LaMelo out of Lithuania with two LKL games left in the season, according to local journalist Donatas Urbonas. And as almost anyone could have predicted going in, the issue was a spat with BC Vytautas head coach Virginijus Seskus.

    The Associated Press and other news organizations asked a judge Wednesday to unseal records in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, citing overwhelming public interest in a case they said was among the most important in American history. The news media coalition is asking specifically for transcripts of hearings in the ongoing prosecution of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, as well as access to sealed search warrant applications filed by investigators. Any interest in protecting the integrity of the probe, which is examining potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, is outweighed by the public's right...

    The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee has decided to be clown itself further by suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Trump campaign for collusion during the 2016 election. For a party thatÂ’s tired of the media talking about Hillary and 2016, this is a way to keep both issues front and center. ItÂ’s going to re-open the wounds between the left and far left of the Democratic Party, erecting another obstacle for unity as the party heads into the 2016 election. Is the DNC's Trump-Russia conspiracy lawsuit a "political stunt?"Now, if youÂ’re a Democrat, it keeps Russia in the news, as the...

    A national poll conducted of 1,000 likely voters by McLaughlin & Associates and former Clinton pollster Dick Morris provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows support for President Trump and suspicion of the investigation of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. By a margin of 51 percent to 33 percent, voters do not believe Mueller has found “real evidence of corruption by the president.” More specifically, by a margin of 10 points, 43 percent to 33 percent, voters feel that Mueller has not uncovered any evidence that “President Trump colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.” A plurality of voters, 43 percent...

    The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trump’s perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else. That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first lady’s presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright...

    Hundreds of migrants arrive at the Mexican border seeking asylum in the U.S. Groups of people from Central America camped by the border wall Monday with tents and sleeping bags as they waited for their asylum pleas to be processed. They came as a part of a caravan allegedly fleeing violence and poverty in their native countries. The caravan started with about 1,200 migrants, but has reportedly thinned to around 600. President Trump has since taken to Twitter to announce he plans to keep the migrants from entering the country.

    Deepest blow yet to Trump’s phaseout ....Judge John D. Bates’s ruling would require a full restart, meaning even illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who’d never been approved before would now be able to apply for DACA.... judge imposed a 90-day delay on his own ruling to give the government a chance to reargue its case, but for now the ruling stands as the most severe blow yet to Mr. Trump’s phaseout. Judge Bates said the government’s reasoning for revoking DACA wasn’t convincing enough, and so it amounted to an “arbitrary and capricious” decision, which makes it illegal under the Administrative Procedures Act....

    during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak on Breitbart News Tonight. Mansour asked Cruz, “Would you be supportive of President Trump if he ran for reelection in 2020?” Cruz replied, “I certainly assume so. I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016, and I am very encouraged with the substantive policy victories we are getting, whether it is an historic tax cut bill, whether it is regulatory reform that’s unleashing jobs, whether it is repealing the Obamacare individual mandate — which I led the fight to do in the United States Senate...
