    gaffe: a social or diplomatic blunder Kinsley gaffe: when a politician inadvertently tells the truth…saying something publicly that they privately believe is true, but would ordinarily not say publicly You know, like that time Hillary called us a basket of deplorables? That was awesome.So thank you Joy Behar, for inadvertently letting the truth slip out yesterday in an effort to be cute: Whoopie: Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?Joy: Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office.  Her answer also qualifies on all counts as being too cute by half.But not in a...

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has dismissed claims by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that world will end if global warming is not addressed immediately. The Democrat from New York made the statement in an interview at a Martin Luther King Day event where she spelled out the fears that many millennials in her demographic have, referring to climate change as “our World War Two.” “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address...

    American University is hosting a seminar for its faculty to teach them a new way of grading students without relying too heavily on the quality of their work. The seminar will be taught by University of Washington–Tacoma professor Dr. Asao Inoue. “Grading papers based on their quality imposes ‘white’ standards that are insensitive to alternate ways of thinking and communicating,” Inoue explained. “Just because a student’s writing seems incoherent and ungrammatical to a white professor doesn’t mean he should give it a bad grade. President Trump often makes grammatical mistakes. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) is often incoherent. These...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Don’t blame her, she’s just like 74% of other Democrats. – The pathetically misinformed, abject ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio Cortez told an interviewer on Monday that “The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?” Yes, friends, it seems our planet has an expiration date now, and AOC has determined it to be the year 2031. So, to hell with saving for retirement or paying those bills, let’s just all go out to Vegas and blow...

    Tucker Carlson monologue excoriating famous journalists and celebs who put the Covington Catholic students in danger, some even fantasizing about assault and murder, is one of the best he’s ever done. "They were primarily attacked for having white skin."

    Levin also asked the lawmaker to consider the advancements brought upon society by Bill Gates, Pennsylvania steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, Jeffrey Bezos and Henry Ford. "What has [Ocasio-Cortez] created? Any part time job?" he asked, adding that Ocasio-Cortez failed to lay out how she will deal with those in the higher income brackets. "Who decides who gets what? The Department of Agriculture?" he asked. "Americans do not like big, authoritarian, centralized government... We live better than kings and queens lived 250 years ago." Levin then offered an invitation to Ocasio-Cortez to join him on "Life, Liberty & Levin," saying that...

    Rush Limbaugh identified National Review as a news media outfit that prioritizes the pursuit of “approval [from] the mainstream media” over veracity in reporting, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of his eponymous show. Limbaugh highlighted recent news media narratives framing a group of Covington Catholic High School students as “racists,” including agreement from ostensibly conservative news media outlets and personalities.

    The Washington Times ^ | January 22, 2019 | Alex Swoyer
    President Trump announced Tuesday his intent to renominate 51 of his judicial nominees, who didn’t see confirmation votes during the last Congress and whose nominations had expired at the end of last year. Out of the 51 picks for the federal bench, nine were for federal circuit court vacancies including Neomi J. Rao, who was tapped to fill Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s old seat on the D.C. Circuit. Liberal groups have already vowed to oppose her nomination. Ms. Rao, who works in the White House budget office, came under scrutiny after several news outlets reported earlier this month about college...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told Fox News' "Your World with Neil Cavuto" on Tuesday that he would have no objections to President Trump delivering a State of the Union address in the House of Representatives on Jan. 29, despite House speaker Nancy Pelosi's repeated threats that the traditional speech be delayed. [cut] Hoyer, in an apparent break with Pelosi, seemingly had no problems with allowing Trump to speak. "Sure," Hoyer responded, when asked if he'd be open to Trump speaking in person in the House for the State of the Union.

    A plurality of U.S. voters point to immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Tuesday. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said that they see immigration as their top issue – more than the 36 percent who said health care is the most important matter in the country. The findings come as a deadlock between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall drags a partial government shutdown into its fifth week. The findings also suggests that the topic of immigration could play an outsize...

    BuzzFeed News has obtained files that the news outlet says contradict President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's recent claims that there were "no plans" drawn up for Trump Tower Moscow. The online outlet reported on the files on Tuesday, after Giuliani in a New Yorker interview claimed that plans for Trump Tower Moscow did not extend beyond "a letter of intent." "The only thing that ever happened was that [Trump's team] submitted a letter of intent about a possible project in Moscow that never went beyond that," Giuliani said. "No money was ever paid, no plans were ever made. There...

    Does anyone maintain a comprehensive list (wiki?) of all the times we've heard it breathlessly announced that FINALLY, at LAST, PDJT's political career is toast? The latest from a few days ago (which had a near record-breaking shelf-life of only a bit more than a day), was that Impeccably Reliable Sources had proof of DJT suborning perjury from Cohen. Last Nov, his imminent demise was announced when the Dems won back the House, as it would quickly lead to impeachment, followed by conviction in the Senate. And there were a number of others in between those last two. Here are...

    The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends) Just a week into his presidency, I briefly advocated in this space that President Trump should cancel the idiotic, 45 year-old tradition of holding daily press briefings at the White House. In May of 2017, I penned a longer piece on the subject that can be read at this link: Kill the White House Press Briefings Now. For those too lazy or time-constrained to read the whole thing, here is part of what I said in that piece: “The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided...

    Smart call. Can’t go wrong with Republican voters by standing up to Pelosi, after all. And Trump’s insistence on following protocol by delivering the State of the Union as scheduled is a neat bit of table-turning on Democrats. Normally he’s the one accused of flouting political norms, often for petty reasons. This time he’s the one who’s trying to stick to norms, with Pelosi peevishly trying to block him.She’s in a bad spot now. Whether she does attend or if she doesn’t, the politics are unkind to her. SCOOP: @WhiteHouse has sent a letter to the Sergeant-At-Arms, asking to...

    Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has never been one to hold back on his criticism of President Donald Trump, and that's no exception during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. While the Spurs volunteered Monday at the Champions Against Hunger dinner, a fundraiser for the San Antonio Food Bank, Popovich spoke his mind on the government shutdown, now in its fourth week. "It's just a shame that so many people are affected by what President Trump and our politicians have done. We all know it's really for no good reason," Popovich told reporters. "It's a prop. It's childish. Petty....

    Two Republican lawmakers said Tuesday that Michael Cohen will not answer questions about ongoing investigations related to President Trump, his former client, when he testifies before Congress next month. In a letter to Cohen’s attorney Guy Petrillo, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) also said that Cohen spokesman Lanny Davis admitted that he “pushed” Cohen to testify before the House Oversight Committee during a recent meeting with Republican committee staff. The letter sent Tuesday seeks more information from Petrillo about Cohen’s public testimony on Feb. 7. According to Jordan and Meadows, Davis told them that Cohen would refuse...

    Despite the FBI’s alibi alleging that the top DOJ officials who signed the application to the FISA Court for permission to spy on the Trump campaign believed that the Steele Dossier was legitimate intelligence, it now appears that this is yet another lie emerging from the once highly regarded Agency. It turns out that former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr testified in Congress last August that he had fully briefed top level FBI and Justice Department officials—including the FBI’s then-Deputy Director Andy McCabe, lawyer Lisa Page, FBI lead investigator Peter Strzok (who worked with then FBI Director James Comey...
