  • "Suspicious Minds": Trump accused of racism for honoring Elvis, as he awards Medal of Freedom

    Not everyone believes Elvis is the king. President Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seven Americans on Friday, including the late rock star Elvis Presley, though even that gesture is coming under fire from liberals. Trump is honoring Presley, baseball legend Babe Ruth, former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, philanthropist Miriam Adelson, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, jurist Alan Page, and Hall-of-Fame quarterback Roger Staubach. Still, some have accused Trump of racism for honoring Presley, long known as the "King of Rock and Roll." The Washington Post’s pop culture critic Chris Richards called Trump’s move “a little nod...

    After flipping dozens of seats in the midterm elections, Democrats are set to take control of the House of Representatives. Many pundits and analysts have attempted to frame the results as a referendum on President Trump. Among these, there seems to be a consensus that the president has somehow been “repudiated.” Not so fast.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has become the go-to “expert” on “hate groups” for establishment media and companies such as Amazon, but when a Washington Post Magazine reporter was commissioned to produce an in-depth feature on the organization, he came away with a least some doubt about SPLC’s credibility as an arbiter of “hate.” The reporter, David Montgomery, clearly is an admirer of SPLC, but his article was titled “The State of Hate: Researchers at the Southern Poverty Law Center have set themselves up as the ultimate judges of hate in America. But are they judging fairly?” The Post writer...
  • Even WashPost Concedes Broward Elections Supervisor Is Incompetent at Best

    Newsbusters ^ | November 10, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Although the mainstream media continues to deny the many allegations of corruption and fraud against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, even they are forced to concede the overwhelming evidence of incompetence on her part. The absurdly high level of incompetence on display by Snipes is too much for even some in the liberal media, which would normally be expected to jump to her defense especially since the highly questionable Broward ballots threaten to deprive Rick Scott of his U.S. Senate victory over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson. One example of the admission of Snipes' utter incompetence (but not...

    FULL TITLE: America, Did You Forget About The Created “Fake News” Legalization from 2016 Which is Being Played Out Today? Look to who released the “fake news blacklist.” It was the Washington Post. Who then fueled the fire? The same media that 94% of Americans say they do not believe in, and rightly so. They want to knock everyone over by force while they are left standing. Who then gains from all of this? “For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at...
  • WashPo/ABC News Poll Has Ominous News For Democrats

    Despite the headlines about an eight-point advantage for Democrats in the generic congressional ballot, the detailed results of today’s Washington Post/ABC News poll should make most Democratic Party leaders and their billionaire benefactors sweat. First, the eight-point gap represents a five-point drop from the same poll just three weeks ago, when Democrats had a 13-point advantage. (Like most polls, the sample favors Democrats by six points among registered voters.) But even more ominous for Democrats is how specific voting blocs responded. If Democrats are going to win control of the House, they need to pull votes from independent women and...
  • Trump's Evangelical Advisers Meet Saudi Crown Prince In Rare Visit

    A group of prominent U.S. evangelical figures, including several of President Donald Trump's evangelical advisers, met Thursday with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose role in the killing of Washington Post contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi remains unclear. In a statement that included smiling photos, the group said "it is our desire to lift up the name of Jesus whenever we are asked and wherever we go." The meeting at the royal palace in Riyadh comes amid widespread questions about the role the prince played in the operation that left Khashoggi dead after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul...

    Washington Times ^ | October 30, 2018 | Anthony Scaramucci
    On Sept. 10, 2016, at a fund raiser in New York, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton infamously called half of Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables.” I’m sure you remember the moment. In a very real sense, Hillary lost the election that day. The Trump campaign seized the opportunity. Mr. Trump had been behind in the polls but had started to make up ground. He needed an opening to pull even and eventually overcome the poll numbers. Hillary handed it to him on a platter. Donald Trump then hijacked the Democratic base. Many of those deplorables, as Hillary called them,...

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired, and I hope you are, too.” — Joe Biden I’m sick and tired, too.

    The 2018 midterms are here. It’s close. It was never that way heading into October. The Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was vicious. It was nasty. It was the weaponization of the Me Too movement in an attempt to clip a qualified judge from taking his spot on the court; Kavanaugh was besieged at the last minute with baseless and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct. It was a slog, but Kavanaugh was confirmed earlier this month. It also lit a fire under the GOP base, which was at long last energized, infuriated, and ready to vote, especially GOP women....

    The closing campaign strategy of President Donald Trump and Republicans is often depicted as mainly an effort to galvanize the GOP's blue-collar white base through fear-mongering about immigrants and incitement of racial-cultural tensions around imagery of angry Democratic mobs and protesting African American athletes. But there's a second piece to the strategy that's also crucial: Trump and Republicans want college-educated white voters, particularly suburban women, to ignore all that unpleasant racial and cultural demagoguery entirely - and focus only on the economy. It is widely observed that Democrats are favored to take back the House because of a backlash against...

    Retired airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed the famous "miracle on the Hudson," said Monday that “this is not the America I know and love” in a message encouraging voter participation ahead of the midterm elections. Sullenberger wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post that he “witnessed the best in people” on Jan. 15, 2009, when he led 154 people to safety by making an emergency landing on the Hudson River after a malfunction. ADVERTISEMENT "To navigate complex challenges, all leaders must take responsibility and have a moral compass grounded in competence, integrity and concern for the greater good,"...

    Tuesday is the day President Trump will announce his plan to stop the migrant invasion force heading north through Mexico toward the U.S. border. According to the Washington Post, the officials are still nailing down the details. But others are working on plans, too. Leftists are gearing up, as The New American reported last week, to file border-busting lawsuits that will stop the president from deporting the illegal aliens. Rather than claim the president doesn’t have the authority to declare some immigrants ineligible, the anti-American legal front will claim the migrants are seeking asylum and have a right to apply...

    I am a Jew — a New York Writer Liberal Jew, the scariest Jew of all — and from a very young age, I was taught about an unimaginable horror called the Holocaust and about an evil man named Adolf Hitler. The elderly man who sat beside me every Saturday morning in synagogue was a Holocaust survivor, and his elderly wife was a Holocaust survivor, as well. And so the first reason the comparison of Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler bothers me is not because it belittles the deaths of millions of innocents, but because, frankly, it belittles Adolf Hitler.

    "If Clinton takes office, the scandals won’t come to a screeching halt. Nothing about the latest chapter of Clinton scandal lends itself to a tidy conclusion. There will always be a seepage of fresh emails; new revelations about some impropriety regarding the Clinton Foundation, Clinton donors, Clinton staff and the like; and reports of Bill Clinton saying or doing something compromising or otherwise inappropriate. There will never be a last email, a last allegation of pay to play or a last word written by a former Clinton insider. Nothing will stop the ooze of Clinton corruption"

    The Trump administration and the US defence industry are scrambling to save the few actual deals in the much-touted $110 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia as concerns rise about the role of the Kingdom's leadership over the death of a prominent critic. President Donald Trump has hedged his criticism of Saudi leaders over the disappearance and death of US resident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, insisting he does not want to imperil a "tremendous order" of $110 billion of weapons he says will support 500,000 US jobs - figures that experts say are highly exaggerated. Khashoggi's killing in...

    We knew nearly nothing, except that the Secret Service had intercepted “potential explosive devices” targeting the Clintons and Obamas, while investigators also looked into a suspicious package at CNN’s New York offices. Days earlier, authorities found an explosive device in the mailbox of liberal philanthropist George Soros. We did not know who sent them, or why, or what exactly the potential devices were. But John Cardillo, a right-wing media personality, was already tweeting out his suspicions. “Investigators need to take a serious look at far left groups like #Antifa when investigating the bombs sent to Soros, Obama, and the Clintons,”...
