  • All of Trump’s SCOTUS Women

    Weekly Standard ^ | July 2, 2018 | Alice B. Lloyd
    As the list of possible SCOTUS picks narrows to rumored likelies, what about the women? Who will Trump pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy? We have some clues: “It will be somebody from that list,” the president said Wednesday, referring to the 25 names he published in November. Reports since then have narrowed down these top contenders to five insider favorites. “We have to pick one that’s going to be there for 40 years, 45 years,” Trump also said, suggesting a judge’s relative youth may be a deciding factor. There are six women on the list, and one in...
  • Rolling Stone Accidentally Reveals Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as Pander Queen

    As you see in the very title of their paean to junior senator from New York (D-of course), How Kirsten Gillibrand Is Outsmarting Donald Trump, they meant it to be entirely adulatory. However, the article's author, Tessa Stuart, was so blinded in admiration for her subject that she failed to notice that she accidentally revealed Gillibrand's utter duplicity.Perhaps Stuart was so blinded by Gillibrand's "brilliance" that it allowed a very ugly truth to slip out. Let us first jump in when Stuart was in the process of pouring out love for Gillibrand that kept oozing right up to the moment...

    "We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American," WHCA chief says Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, opened the dinner with an address about the core of journalism. "Real news is sometimes happy, heart-warming, or heart-breaking and critical or makes you angry. But we reject efforts — be it anyone, especially our elected officials — to undermine journalism as un-American," Talev said.

    This episode examines how a serious injury sustained by a factory worker in 1867 not only changed the course of that man's life, but also set in motion a chain of events that changed the course of American history —in a way that countless people for generations have benefited from. USA!
  • MASTER CLASS: Ben Sasse EXPERTLY grills Mark Zuckerberg on ‘hate speech’

    Twitchy ^ | 4-10-2018 | Sarah D.
    As Twitchy told you, Ted Cruz dove right in and confronted Mark Zuckerberg about Facebook’s apparent anti-conservative bias. But Cruz wasn’t the only GOP senator holding Zuckerberg’s feet to the fire. Earlier in the hearing, Zuckerberg touted his vision for Facebook’s future, a future in which Facebook’s AI tools will be able to catch “hate speech” before it’s even posted. Aside from the general creepiness of that vision, it’s also incredibly vague. What, exactly, constitutes “hate speech” in Zuckerberg’s mind? Sen. Ben Sasse asked that very question — and proceeded to mop the floor with him: Jason Howerton ✔ @jason_howerton...
  • Ann Coulter: Jerry Seinfeld Endorses Roy Moore?

    Breitbart ^ | December 6, 2017 | Ann Coulter
    Apparently, the GOP is now the party of CHILD MOLESTATION! At least the media tell me that’s the meaning of President Trump’s endorsement of Senate candidate Roy Moore. Are we allowed to mention that Moore denies the charges? It’s hard to disprove accusations from 40 years ago — that’s why we have statutes of limitations — but, despite that, there are a surprising number of problems with the allegations against Moore. One accuser has been called a liar by her own stepson, who says he’s voting for Moore. Another neglected to mention that Moore sent her brother to prison.

    PJ Media ^ | 12/2/17 | Tyler O'Niell
    In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the U.S. Senate passed a major tax reform bill. While the U.S. House of Representatives passed a version of the same bill, the two are not identical, so the measure now goes into a process called "reconciliation" before it hits the president's desk. Even so, liberals (and at least one former Republican) started freaking out, as if this bill were the end of the world. Here are some of the most ridiculous responses to the passage of the tax bill.

    When reading the Declaration of Independence over the holiday weekend, it’s easy to skip over the names of the signers and focus instead on the sweeping language of the second paragraph. This overlooks the fact that the signers pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor in order to found a country upon self-evident truths rooted in the nature of man.

    In the summer of 2002, shortly before I was elected to Congress, I sat through an eye-opening meeting with representatives from the Natural Resources Defense Council and several local environmental activist groups. Hoping to convince me to support various water restrictions, they argued that San Joaquin Valley farmers should stop growing alfalfa and cotton in order to save water — though they allowed that the planting of high-value crops such as almonds could continue. Then, as our discussion turned to the groups' overall vision for the San Joaquin Valley, they told me something astonishing:

    All of a sudden, aircraft carriers are back in fashion. Over in Russia, they're drawing up plans to build the world's biggest aircraft carrier, a 100,000-ton beast that can carry 100 combat aircraft. China's building one, two, or maybe even four aircraft carriers. And here in the United States, we're busy building our second ­Ford-class supercarrier. Around the world and across the seas, aircraft carriers are popping up in the unlikeliest of places -- in Korea, in Thailand, in India, Japan, and maybe soon in Singapore, as well. But you'll never guess the latest country to announce plans to acquire...

    This entire phony genre of journalism is now well beyond embarrassing. Do you know what a fact is? That’s easy. Of course you do. Fact is an objective truth not subject to interpretation or dispute. Water is liquid if it’s above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a fact. Thursday comes after Wednesday. That’s a fact. The address of the White House is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. People who deal in actual facts can recognize that an assertion is either fact-based or its not. It’s really not that complicated. That’s for normal people who understand what a fact is. But there are other...
  • Huh? Actor Richard Dreyfuss Writes Rational Article for PJ Media

    NewsBusters ^ | May 11, 2015 | P.J. Gladnick
    Which is weirder: building a flat topped mountain out of mashed potatoes or an actor who until about four years ago was a left wing lunatic but is now writing a rational article for the conservative PJ Media? When your humble correspondent saw the name "Richard Dreyfuss" as the author of an article in PJ Media, he immediately thought it must be a writer with the same name as the actor. However, after scrolling down to the bottom of the story, imagine my surprise upon discovering that it was indeed the actor. Although Dreyfuss did display a refreshing moment of...

    Rock art specialists from around North America have finally solved this century old archaeological riddle. The stone slab is evidence that native peoples from Puerto Rico or Cuba once lived within the interior of Eastern North America. One day, long before Christopher Columbus claimed to have landed on the eastern edge of Asia, a forgotten people cut steps in the rocks leading up a steep bluff near the Chattahoochee River in the northwest section of the State of Georgia. They carved a supernatural figure on a four feet by one foot granite slab and erected it on the top of...

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/29/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The FBI has released its latest statistics on Hate Crimes in America and the numbers will certainly be ignored by the media. The first statistic that jumps off the page when reviewing the Bureau’s Uniform Crime Report Hate Crime Statistics, 2013 is that claims that America is a hate filled nation are wishful thinking lies. The total number of “hate crimes” reported nationwide in 2013 was, at 5928, not even 6000! For a population of approximately 315 million people this number is low enough to support a claim that Hate Crimes don’t happen in our polyglot nation. Nevertheless, of course...

    Times of Israel ^ | October 29, 2014, 11:29 PM | Tamar Sternthal
    A favored topic at The New York Times is the purported racism of Israeli society at large. It has been the topic, again and again, of Op-Eds, editorials and news stories. Conversely, Times editors seem ever reluctant to approach the subject of Palestinian racism, although there is no dearth of material there.Why this discrepancy? Times opinion editor Matt Seaton today provided a window into the mindset of the editors in his response to a query by this media analyst about whether readers “can expect two hit pieces on Palestinian racism in the next month” in keeping with the pace of...

    It is the greatest murder mystery of all time, a puzzle that has perplexed criminologists for more than a century and spawned books, films and myriad theories ranging from the plausible to the utterly bizarre. But now, thanks to modern forensic science, The Mail on Sunday can exclusively reveal the true identity of Jack the Ripper, the serial killer responsible for at least five grisly murders in Whitechapel in East London during the autumn of 1888. DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt which one of six key suspects commonly cited in connection with the Ripper’s reign of terror...

    With the glow of Earth well-hidden, any dust in the moon’s scant atmosphere around the time of orbital sunrise should become visible. Scientists also expected to see the softly luminous glow of the zodiacal light, an extensive cloud of comet and asteroid dust concentrated in the flat plane of the solar system. The zodiacal light gets its name from the zodiac, that familiar band of constellations the planets pass through as they orbit the sun. Back on Earth, the zodiacal light looks like a big thumb of light standing up from the western horizon a couple hours after sunset in...

    So many businesses are just someone’s dream—to make an honest living, to serve the community something it’s missing, to use talents to their greatest potential. Every roadblock the government erects makes those dreams slightly less possible. And, those roadblocks aren’t tripping up the lavishly rich. In this case, an unnecessary regulation in Mississippi was keeping hundreds of working- and middle-class black women from making a living doing something their community wanted to pay them for— hairbraiding. One woman fought for seven years to change that. The result is pretty much the whole reason I believe what I believe.I’ve known this...

After alleging the ranch’s owner, Cliven Bundy, had failed to pay federal grazing fees for a number of years, armed BLM agents swarmed the area, resorting to physical violence against members of the family and threats toward those who arrived to support them.</p>
