  • Analysis: Mueller is about to take a big step closer to Trump

    To date, four people have pleaded guilty to charges brought against them by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team. Two were ancillary characters: a businessman who apparently sold bank account numbers to Russian trolls and a lawyer who’d worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime partner Rick Gates. Two were closer to the campaign. One is campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, whose connections to Russia-linked characters helped spur the initial investigation in July 2016 into whether President Trump’s campaign had aided Russian interference efforts. And then there’s Michael Flynn, a campaign aide who wound...
  • Survey: Flipping the 49th Congressional District (Issa Seat) Won’t Be Easy

    A just-released poll, conducted February 12-15 by FM3 Research for Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action has a cautionary tale for Democrats seeking to replace retiring Congressman Darrell Issa in the 49th Congressional District. The good news is the Republicans’ brand is so tarnished that a generic Democrat could win over a generic Republican by 7 points or more. The bad news is that the current line-up of Democratic candidates is likely to split primary voters in such a way that two Republicans will face each other in the general election. The FM3 poll is unique in that was conducted...
  • Trump's chief of staff and national security advisor may quit soon over tensions with him

    Reuters via CNBC ^ | 02-22-2018 | Staff
    Longstanding friction between U.S. President Donald Trump and two top aides, the National Security Advisor and the Chief of Staff, has grown to a point that either or both might quit soon, four senior administration officials said. Both H.R. McMaster and John Kelly are military men considered by U.S. political observers as moderating influences on the president by imposing a routine on the White House. They have also convinced Trump of the importance of international alliances, particularly NATO, which he has criticized as not equally sharing its burdens with the United States. However, all the officials were quick to add...

    In a long, rambling February 20, 2018, speech before the UN Security Council, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas fed fables to his audience — and continued to attack Israel’s legitimacy. The speech marked the third time in two months that Abbas has publicly distorted history, and shifted blame for the lack of a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And once again, Abbas had a key ally: An uncritical press, seemingly determined to present the Palestinian leader in the best possible light. In his opening remarks before the Security Council, Abbas claimed that Palestinians “are the descendants of the Canaanites...

  • CNN: Trump Shouldn’t Call Mass Shooter A ‘Sicko’ Because It’s Stigmatizing

    This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever. CNN has a whole story devoted to shaming Trump for calling the Parkland shooter a “sicko” on the grounds that it’s stigmatizing to people with mental health problems who aren’t all mass shooters of children. From CNN: In a tweet Thursday, President Donald Trump described someone who would shoot up a school as a “savage sicko.” At CNN’s town hall on the Parkland, Florida, school shootings on Wednesday, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch described the gunman as “an insane monster” who is “nuts” and crazy.”...

Oh, speaking of which, there is this guy out there that claims that CNN gave him a question. They wanted to script his question. He wanted to make a speech, extended remarks and ask a question.

    The View's Joy Behar is on the defensive after ABC News was inundated with thousands of complaints when her show mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christianity. Tuesday, February 13, Joy Behar mocked the Vice President’s faith on national television, calling it “mental illness” to listen to the Lord. The next day a somber Pence responded that such an attack on Christian prayer “was just wrong.” A fervor ensued. The 75-year-old Behar is now back-peddling on her comment, calling it a “joke.” “I’m going to put the question to you,” Whoopi Goldberg forewarned Behar on Thursday’s episode of The View. “Do...

    Commentary ^ | 16 Feb 2018 | Andrew Ferguson
    Of the making of Washington movies, there is no end. Kohelet said this in Ecclesiastes, I think. Or maybe it was Gene Shalit on the Today Show. It’s a truism in any case. Steven Spielberg’s latest entry in the genre, The Post, is for many Washingtonians the most powerful example in the long line. When the movie opened here in late December, there were reports of audiences cheering lustily and even dissolving in tears at the movie’s end, as if they were watching a speech by President Obama. The local paper ran news articles about it, along with numberless feature...

    On Wednesday there was an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by William Galston titled: "The Clear and Present Danger of Trump.” A bold insert said: His weekend Twitter outburst calls into question his ability to discharge his powers. The article starts off: In business, it is said, the customer is always right. Politics is more complicated, because citizens are called upon to be more than consumers. “The people commonly intend the public good,” Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 71, “but their good sense would despise the adulator who should pretend that they always reason right about the means...

    Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy warned Wednesday that mass shootings are being planned all over the country, and that everyone is likely to be affected as the tragic incidents continue to proliferate. "This is coming to your neighborhood," the Democratic governor said on CNN. "This could affect your grandchild, or your child. You're going to see people in your state killed in restaurants, and movie theaters, and schools, and in churches."

    On ABC’s February 22 show, The View hosts addressed the White House listening session and CNN town hall that occurred the day before about the Parkland school shooting, but spread some misinformation along the way, as usual. Host Sunny Hostin began by complaining that President Trump’s response to the shooting was “more guns” not “less:” I was surprised that the president even after this listening session seemed to suggest that teachers should -- that the answer is having more guns rather than less. And he mentioned the teachers should carry weapons. And I just -- teachers are there to teach our...

    A television channel specialising in vintage programmes has been plunged into a row with the regulator over racist language in a 1970s drama. Talking Pictures TV, watched by two million viewers a week, has been admonished by Ofcom for declining to censor the outdated term – although it reportedly received just one complaint. The family-run digital channel, which specialises in the likes of Norman Wisdom comedies and Peter Sellers classics, was probed after screening Second World War drama A Family at War, originally broadcast from 1970-72 on ITV.
  • Billionaire Bill Gates has no idea how commoners spend their money

    02/22/2018 10:33:47 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 43 replies
    It’s been awhile since billionaire Bill Gates had to grocery shop among us plebs, so you’ll forgive him if he’s a little disconnected from the price of common items. The Microsoft co-founder appeared on “Ellen” yesterday, where the daytime host had him guessing costs of supermarket sundries like Rice-a-Roni, pizza rolls and forbidden snack-du-jour Tide Pods. SNIP Gates pegged Rice-a-Roni at $5 (it’s $1). He thought a container of Tide Pods cost $4. Please, it’s $19.97. After guessing an exorbitantly high cost for Totino’s Pizza Rolls, the audience took pity on him and pointed him to a more on-the-nose answer...

    As you know, CNN has a tendency to fake the news. It held a debate in which the Clinton campaign was fed questions ahead of time. Here's a list of their fake news for 2017 alone. Yesterday CNN held a "town hall" in which it propped up Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch to be used as leftist cannon fodder. Wednesday's CNN town hall to promote gun control and gun grabbing was off the rails from the start. So-called moderator Jake Tapper sat back as the wild crowd targeted Republican Senator Marco Rubio (Fla.) with boos and jeers for basically just being there....

Following the tragic deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Winfrey announced that she would be following George and Amal Clooney, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and making a $500,000 donation to support the March for Our Lives demonstration in which students “will take to the streets of Washington, D.C. to demand that their lives and safety become a priority” and that...

  • Florida survivors push back after GOP activist says they're 'hijacked by left-wing groups'

    Student survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are taking the fight for gun control to the state and national level don’t appreciate seeing their organizing efforts being labeled as a left-wing conspiracy. “Their sorrow can very easily be hijacked by left-wing groups who have an agenda,” former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) told CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, specifically naming billionaire and liberal activist George Soros. “Do we really think 17-year-olds on their own are going to plan a nationwide rally?” the conservative activist continued. Incensed students went on the air following Kingston’s remarks to...

    Remember Sandra Fluke? The Democrats brought her in to undermine religious freedom with a ridiculous story about being unable to afford birth control. They brought her in because she was an earnest, young woman. And a human shield. Republicans should have ignored her. Instead they attacked her. And that made her a celebrity and a victim. Soon she was the young woman who had been called a "slut". Fluke rode that to a speaking gig at the DNC, where she claimed to represent all women, and several attempts to run for Congress. Most importantly, the left got to shift the...
