    Once again, the left wing media shoots itself in the foot. It proved that there are few journalists out there. Most of them are hacks- biased democrat operatives pretending to be authentic reporters so determined to visit harm on Donald Trump without regard for the truth. The latest left wing gaffe proved it conclusively. Buzzfeed, the purveyor of the phony Trump dossier, was at it again. They breathlessly reported that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie: President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to...
  • Trump Reversal of Obama School Discipline Policy Harms Minorities [semi-satire]

    The Trump Administration’s intention to eliminate the “racially balanced” regulations promulgated by former President Obama’s “Dear Colleague Letter” was condemned by former Obama Administration Sec. of Education Arne Duncan who called it harmful to minorities. “The whole point of President Obama’s approach was to equalize the stigma of school disciplinary actions so that each racial grouping was proportionately represented in the punishments meted out,” Duncan said. “The previous policy articulated by former Reagan Administration official Clarence Thomas in 1981 merely directed that whatever disciplinary procedures a school had must be applied without racial bias. This led to minorities being disproportionately...

    [PHOTO Sean Connery, “Bond...James Bond.] I “DISCOVERED” JAMES BOND, for myself, At 17. I walked in off the street, sat down unknowing, and was immersed in a glorious Modern Myth that was James Bond in DR. NO. At last, a new mythology for the newly born Space Age. An indestructible mythic warrior for right and good. A high-tech Everyman who would train, learn, strive and somehow always overcome the odds against him. A Universal Hero and Winner for the time. At that time, 1962, the musical score and production of DR. NO were overwhelming. Sean Connery was slim, light, and...

    [PHOTO} Here, quoted below, we are presented with liberal “experts.” A liberal bunch of so-called, foodie “professors” and “scientists,” who are dependent upon liberal-minded grants and donations, telling their version of a liberal Save The Planet myth—to a liberal French newspaper, being quoted by a liberal web portal. We are told they will care for us. We are told what food they will permit to us to eat. We are told how much food will be allowed to us. This will all somehow be worked out, “scientifically.” What’s not to believe? What could possibly go wrong with that? I say...

Social media has spoken of the notion of protests both days this weekend but a major theme is "Back to Paris" and that's one of the numerous places in France where protests are expected today. Places for protest to name a few Marseille, Bordeaux, Dijon, Clermont-Ferrand and the list goes on.......

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer rejected an invitation from President Trump to participate in a lunch meeting that would discuss a possible compromise to partially fund a border barrier and reopen the federal government. "We saw the fast food spread he bought for the college football champions," Schumer pointed out. "If he treats star athletes like that I shudder to think what he'd have on the menu for us. He likes football. He hates us. There's no way I'd go without seeing a menu first." Pelosi was even harsher in her assessment of the...

    According to NPR, most Hispanics support President Donald John Trump. His job approval is +4 among Hispanics, while it is -10 among whites and -76 among black people. The poll was conducted last weekend. It showed a 37-point gain for the president among Hispanics in two months. The NPR poll consistently shows President Trump has a low job approval. He was minus 11 in the first one in February 2017. Two years later, he is minus 14. So his low numbers overall are not news. But going from minus 33 among Hispanic voters to plus 4 in two months is...

    When I raised my right hand and swore my Oath to honor, respect, preserve, and protect the Constitution of the United States, I considered it a sacred and lifelong vow. Without the rule of law we are nothing, and have no future beyond the plans that the one(s) with the most money and power have for us. I, and many others who have sworn the same Oath, are/were willing to give anything and everything to honor our pledge. But now, it seems to be little more than a perfunctory photo-op for far too many Washington elite. And why should they...

    Was Pelosi planning on undermining President Trump abroad for the next coming Democrat sabotage? Inquiring minds would sure like to know. The image of haughty House Speaker Nancy Pelosi left fuming on the tarmac after President Donald Trump ‘postponed’ her flight to Afghanistan, Belgium and Egypt provides a kind of levity that millions have been longing for. ‘Her Supreme Highness of the Flying Junket’ has been grounded until after the Government Partial Shutdown by President Donald Trump, the man she lives to hate. Like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights, everyone now knows that Pelosi has spent the lion’s...

    ...BuzzFeed’s Anthony Cormier admitted to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that he had “not personally” seen the evidence supporting the report he co-authored, a report claiming that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie during congressional testimony. The thing is, Jason Leopold, who co-authored the report with Cormier, went on MSNBC later and pretty strongly contradicted Cormier: (snip) told MSNBC: "I’ll just say we’ve seen documents, we’ve been briefed on documents."

    Listen, if you’re Nancy Pelosi it makes a lot of sense. Nancy Pelosi is terrified, number one, of her extreme left-wing base; she is captive of that; and number two, the position of Congressional Democrats in this shutdown is objectively unreasonable. In 2013, Chuck Schumer and every Senate Democrat voted in favor of 350 miles of border wall. They have right now shut the government down to stop 234 miles of border wall. I don’t know how you explain that you voted in favor of 350 miles but you shut the government down to stop 234 miles. That is incoherent....

    As more details about Obama’s great SpyGate crime start to come into public view, recent revelations appear to shed more light on the important, but often overlooked, role of Dana Boente, as REX explains. On 13 January, 2017, three days after the Senate Judiciary Committee began hearings on President-elect Trump’s nomination of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, then President Obama quietly signed EO 13762, Providing an Order of Succession Within the Department of Justice. It was just seven days before the end of Obama’s presidency. In a major breach of protocol, the change was never communicated to President-elect Trump’s transition...

    Bob emailed me, "As of January 20, we can compare two years of Trump to forty-eight years of Nixon through Obama." These are the best two years. Bob listed his reasons. I double checked. 1. "Jobless claims fall to 203,000. They haven’t been this low since Dec. 6, 1969." 2. "Record $300 billion repatriated to USA." 3. "U.S. job openings hit a record 7.1 million, exceed number of unemployed Americans." 4. "Dow blows past 24,000 for the first time ever." 5. "The black unemployment rate has never been closer to the white rate." 6. "For blacks and Latinos, record low...

    The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the court’s business through reading briefs and written transcripts of oral arguments. Any major health scare for Ginsburg at 85...

    Could it be that the once phalanx-like imperturbability of an iron-clad Democrat Party is broken? Have “the newer crew” of Leftists already smashed through some sort of Stolid Democrat Line, in a flanking charge? It looks that way. “...newly elected radicals have shown their hand - they want to Impeach Trump, crimes or not. The Older Democrats are trying to hold them down and prevent such action from being taken. On all fronts Pelosi and Schumer are trying to hold the party together, stamp out fires that keep popping up and rein the radical - and moderate - newbies in.”...

    Those of us who have closely followed the unfolding scandal at the Justice Department— particularly how the FBI abused its power not only to spy on the Trump presidential campaign but also on the president himself—have been frustrated with the inaction both of the White House and Congress. Documents have not been declassified as promised; letters by top lawmakers have gone unanswered with no consequence; and not one perpetrator in the biggest political scandal in history has been held accountable. The New York Times over the weekend confirmed the worst suspicions: Andrew McCabe, a disgraced FBI official caught lying to...

    Sir Winston Churchill: “Lee was the noblest American who had ever lived and one of the greatest commanders known to the annals of war.” During a tour through the South in 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt told the aged Confederate veterans in Richmond, Virginia, “Here I greet you in the shadow of the statue of your commander, General Robert E. Lee. You and he left us memories which are part of the memories bequeathed to the entire nation by all the Americans who fought in the War Between the States.” Saturday January 19, 2019, is the 212th birthday of Robert E....
