  • Arrogant, inexperienced and ineffective: White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is overmatched in her new job (me: yeah, right)

    Poynter ^ | May 26, 2020 | Tom Jones
    For a year, many media outlets — including Poynter — complained about the lack of official White House press conferences. Sarah Sanders didn’t hold one for the final three months of her tenure. Stephanie Grisham didn’t hold one at all in her nine months as press secretary. So when Kayleigh McEnany, who took over in early April, began having press conferences again, it was a welcome change. But in the category of “careful what you wish for,” McEnany is off to a rough start. In her very first official White House press conference, McEnany told reporters, “I will never lie...

    CNN network president Jeff Zucker said in a company-wide memo Wednesday that “the majority” of CNN employees will not return to the network’s office this year due to health concerns stemming from the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report. Zucker wrote, as was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter: We expect that the majority of you will not be able to return to our offices this calendar year. What happens after that is still a question mark, as well. No doubt the world, and our understanding of the way COVID-19 continues to shape our lives and our work, will change countless times...
  • Whitmer Requests National Guard Through July; Grenell Gets in Some Parting Shots

    The only appropriate response to this request is “Hell, no.” – Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator who currently serves as Michigan’s brutish Governor, made a startling request of President Trump earlier today. In a letter e-mailed to the President, Herr Gretchen has the utter gall to request an extension under U.S. Title 32 to extend her use of the state’s National Guard at federal expense through … wait for it… JULY 31. I kid you not: The power-mad Whitmer already has this authority in place through June 24, 12 days after her current lockdown order is set...
  • As NRA membership wanes, America's largest black gun group is thriving

    The country's largest and best known gun rights association, the NRA, is losing board members amid a spate of deadly mass shootings. But another, lesser-known gun organization is thriving: the National African American Gun Association, the largest minority gun group in the country. The group was founded by Phillip Smith, who fondly remembers the first time he fired his 9 mm pistol at a gun range. "I felt free," Smith said. "I had a chance to kind of have some power in my hands." Smith formed the first chapter of the National African American Gun Association, or NAAGA, in Atlanta....

    The fallout from Obamagate continues to accelerate. – Attorney General William Barr announced late yesterday that he has appointed a federal prosecutor in Texas to review the thousands of “unmasking” requests made by high officials during the final weeks of the Obama Administration. This new probe will be carried out by the appropriately-named John Bash, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas. Boom. From a report in the Daily Caller: Bash will carry out the probe in coordination with U.S. attorneys John Durham and Jeff Jensen, who are looking into various aspects of the Trump-Russia investigation. “The attorney...

    Because looting a Target and burning a McDonald’s is always the right answer to social injustice. – What you need to understand about the images coming out of Minneapolis this morning is that they are only partially organic in nature.They are being urged on by social unrest groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, both created by the Democrat Party and largely funded by George Soros and his myriad array of front groups in this country. Antifa/BLM staged a large protest in downtown Minneapolis yesterday in response to the brutal cop killing of a suspected check forger named George Floyd,...

    Living in a Democrat congressional district can be very hazardous to your health. That has to be the main takeaway from a report issued on Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. The report, titled “Coronavirus death toll is heavily concentrated in Democratic congressional districts,” demonstrates that “Of the 44 hardest-hit congressional districts – the top 10% in terms of deaths – 41 are represented by Democrats, while three are represented by Republicans.” Pew’s researchers also found that “nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts –...

    Kayleigh McEnany vs. the Press Isn’t a Fair Fight Although I write about the political media a lot, I don’t consume as much of it as most people might think. The political press in this country is full of tedious, irresponsible idiots, and who needs to subject themselves to that? White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is changing my attitude on that a bit though. McEnany so routinely chides the White House press corps that they’ll probably keep wearing masks long after the coronavirus pandemic is over just to hide their embarrassed faces.Sarah Sanders was good at knocking the press...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, an infectious disease expert on the White House coronavirus task force, said the Republican and Democratic nominating conventions could go on as planned this August if there’s a dramatic downturn in the number of cases. “I mean, if we have a really significant diminution of new cases and hospitalizations, and we’re at a level where it’s really very low, then again, according to the guidelines, you may be able to go to whatever phase you’re in, and that’s some sort of a capability of gathering,” Fauci told CNN in an interview on Wednesday. But he cautioned that...

    As the coronavirus pandemic rips through the world, the uncertainty is so great that it’s sillier than ever to read so much into polls this far out from the election. First, polls were ineffective in predicting Trump’s 2016 victory. In 25 polls of Pennsylvania, Hillary was ahead in all but one of them. Trump led in only one Michigan poll in all of 2016. He never led in one poll in Wisconsin, a state in which Clinton was up by 6.5 points in the RealClearPolitics average ahead of Election Day yet Trump ended up winning all three states. Second, there's...

    How much dishonesty can one tweet contain? A tweet Tuesday by CNN host Jake Tapper about coronavirus was so untethered from the truth that it was a difficult task to determine what was more dishonest, the photo or the message, or all of the above. After the mercifully long Memorial Day weekend, CNN’s professional coronavirus scold took beachgoers to task for failing to socially distance. And he brought the “receipts,” or so he thought. In 18 states — including Georgia, Arkansas, California and Alabama — the number of new COVID-19 cases is rising. Here’s the photo he and CNN used...

    Don’t look now, but Twitter is beginning its move to de-platform the President. – Twitter took the first step towards what will almost certainly become an eventual de-platforming of President Trump’s account Wednesday. Check out the little blue blurb at the bottom of the tweets below: Hilariously, clicking on the “Get the facts” note takes you to completely false articles by corrupt outlets like CNN on the matter of mail-in voting. But that’s what Twitter does. Look, you should expect the President’s account to be banned completely well before the Republican National Convention in August. Twitter already moved to restrict...

    Earlier this month, the University of Minnesota School of Public Health released projections from a revised coronavirus computer model that said deaths might double by Memorial Day. That didn’t happen. In fact, to a layman, it doesn’t even look close. Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm and a key official involved in the model both acknowledged Tuesday that the short-term death projections of the model are notably higher than the reality — but both defended the value of the model.

    If this doesn’t make you sick, I don’t know what will. – A video made public yesterday shows four Minneapolis police killing a man on the street in broad daylight. Literally killing him. Watch: Despite the man’s repeated pleas that he can’t breathe, this policeman leaned with his knee on his neck until he died. In broad daylight, while a crowd of pedestrians watched and shouted, so these officers had to know they were being caught on video. Yet, the officer leaned on the man until he died while his three fellow officers stood around like slugs and watched. Maybe...

    It appears, even at current new case daily levels, that the US will top 100,000 deaths from the coronavirus sometime near the beginning of June. And worse, recent numbers of new cases have been increasing for the last several days. We all want to get back to business as usual, but let's be careful out there folks! •Blue line represents projected death totals. •Yellow line are actual death totals based on WorldofMeters.info data. •Purple line is actual case numbers offset by 14 days. •Red line represents projected daily deaths.

    WASHINGTON — Joe Biden labeled President Trump “an absolute fool” for apparently poking fun at the presumptive Democratic nominee for wearing a mask at a Memorial Day service Monday. In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, the former veep was asked about Trump’s retweet of a Fox News commentator making fun of Biden’s decision to wear a mask at a service while he went without one. “He’s a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way,” Biden, 77, said in his first face-to-face interview since the coronavirus pandemic upended his presidential campaign. “I mean, every leading doctor in the world...

    A liberal dark money operation pushing “fake news” to hurt President Donald Trump in the 2020 election is pulling out all the stops. OpenSecrets revealed that “political operations are pouring millions of ‘dark money’ dollars into ads and digital content masquerading as news coverage to influence the 2020 election.” One of those operations is dubbed Courier Newsroom, which is owned by the leftist nonprofit ACRONYM. ACRONYM is the company behind the Iowa Democratic Caucus app fiasco. OpenSecrets described Courier as “a network of websites emulating progressive local news outlets.”

    John Ratcliffe was sworn into office as the new Director of National Intelligence Tuesday morning. Especially relevant was the man who did the swearing-in: His predecessor Ric Grenell. In just 90 days on the job, Mr. Grenell performed one of the great services to our country in its history. By the sheer force of his will and his willingness to take personal risks for the greater good, Grenell completely exposed the scope and scale of the scandal we are now calling Obamagate. As a parting salute to Grenell, the folks at the Daily Caller put together a great piece cataloging...

    This tells you all you need to know about the Democrat Party and its hatred for Main Street America. A new story at Politico today details a growing sense of panic among leaders in the Democrat Party over the prospect that the U.S. economy might actually – gasp! – recover in the months leading up to the November election. You seriously could never make this stuff up. From the Politico story: In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top...

    Democrats destroy everything they touch. – The utterly feckless and corrupt World Health Organization announced on Sunday that it was temporarily suspending trials studying the effects of hydroxychloroquine related to the Wuhan Virus due to “safety concerns.” So, now this tool of China that helped create this global pandemic through its fealty to ChiCom talking points is now pulling rank political stunts to try to influence the U.S. election. The Trump Administration should respond by challenging the WHO to show the world the mass graves of lupus and malaria patients who have been successfully and safely using hydroxychloroquine under doctor...
