  • Nolte: Lying Media Shell-Shocked by Robert Mueller’s Fact Check

    Breitbart ^ | 19 Jan 2019 | John Nolte
    Everyone in the establishment media knew BuzzFeed’s report about President Trump suborning perjury from his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was a lie. What they did not expect was special counsel Robert Mueller dropping a fact check on them. They all knew it was a lie. How could they not? To begin with, BuzzFeed admitted it could not verify its own story. Secondly, the story made absolutely no sense. There were two huge tells proving the BuzzFeed story a lie. 1) It made no sense that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., testified accurately about the very thing Trump reportedly told...

    Tony Mendez, the former CIA technical operations officer who orchestrated the 1980 rescue of six American diplomats from Iran and who was portrayed by Ben Affleck in the Academy Award winning film “Argo,” has died. He was 78. Mendez’s book agent, Christy Fletcher, announced the news on Twitter Saturday morning. “Early this morning, Antonio (Tony) J. Mendez finally succumbed to the Parkinson’s Disease that he had been diagnosed with ten+ years ago,” the statement reads. “He was surrounded with love from his family and will be sorely missed. The last thing he and his wife Jonna Mendez did was get...

    Keep Hope Alive! Back when The Wall Stree Journal's James Taranto wrote the paper's 'Best of the Web' column, one of his rubrics was 'Diagram this Sentence,' in which readers were challenged to deconstruct a long and confusing line from a [usually] liberal author. On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley offered a prime example of the genre. Responding to the refutation by the Mueller team of Buzzfeed's report that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russia collusion, Wiley said: "In this case, it doesn't mean, what we are hearing in this, does not mean...

    As each of us gets older, questions about God, purpose and the afterlife become more pronounced. That’s certainly been the case for famed actor Anthony Hopkins. During an appearance last week at the 11th annual LEAP Conference, Hopkins explained a major turning point in his life — a moment when he abandoned his previous embrace of atheism in exchange for a belief in a higher power.

    Dear Mr. President, You cannot make a deal with Satan or his pit of vipers in the congress. Period. If you cave on this you will be a one-term president. The democrats will not come your way to accept your offer no matter what you offer. They sense weakness on your part and they're going to go for your jugular. They couldn't care less about the out of work government workers. This is a sledge hammer they intend to use on you no matter what. The only way you can win in this situation is to stand your ground.

  • Poll: Majority Backs AOC’s 70 Percent Top Marginal Tax Rate

    NYMAG ^ | 15 January 2019 | Eric Levitz
    Earlier this month, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on national television and said that the United States should tax incomes above $10 million at a 70 percent rate. In response, some centrist pundits pronounced the Democratic Party dead by political suicide: National Journal reporter Josh Kraushaar argued that, while congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s profane call for Trump’s impeachment was getting more attention, Ocasio-Cortez “calling for a 70 percent tax rate on the nation’s most-watched news show a whole lot more politically damaging for Ds.” There was never much evidence for this assessment. In public opinion polls, raising taxes on the rich consistently ranks...
  • Democrats dismiss Trump Shutdown Offer (Before he even makes his speech [4pm ET] )

    Axios ^ | 1-19-19 | Caitlin Owens, Jonathan Swan
    Even before President Trump's shutdown remarks on Saturday, Democratic aides on the Hill were dismissing his planned shutdown compromise offer as inadequate. As first reported by Axios, Trump was expected to make two offers to Democrats in exchange for $5.7 billion in funds for a border wall: Extend DACA protections for Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, and extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders. But hours before the speech, Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said in a statement: "I cannot support the proposed offer as reported and do not believe it can pass...

    Ultimately, finding an optimal tax rate for the super-rich is a moral and political issue as much as an economic one. Last week, when 60 Minutes aired an interview with newly sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman New York congressperson caused an uproar with what, by Washington standards, seemed a rather immodest proposal. Asked whether an expansion of public investment in green technologies would require raising taxes, she cited history.

    The anti-Trump pussy march dwindled to 10,000 participants this year in Washington DC. This was down from the estimated one-million who turned out for the violent and vulgar march in 2017. Several leaders of this Democrat pussy march continue to endorse anti-Semitic positions. And the co-leader refuses to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Big League Politics ^ | January 18, 2019 | Jonathon A Moseley
    Anti-Semites are violating federal law by boycotting Israel and Israeli companies and institutions. Activists in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, one of the highest-profile global projects of the left, are subject to criminal and financial penalties, including jail time of five years and fines up to $50,000. A U.S. exporter can lose the right to export any products to any country. So why isn’t the U.S. Department of Justice enforcing the anti-boycott laws? President Donald Trump should order the Office of Antiboycott Compliance to come out of cryogenic stasis and get back to work, and order DOJ to...

    Townhall ^ | 01/19/2019 | Dustin Siggins
    The last major partial government shutdown took place in 2013. It was reviled by many and supported by few. Conservatives who forced the shutdown over the Affordable Care Act had neither the power nor the support to get their way. Their poor strategy gained little and lost some (including possibly the Virginia governor’s race).In the end, it didn’t stop the ACA. It also didn’t matter to voters in the 2014 midterm elections. Contrary to political pundits’ predictions, Republicans took control of Congress.President Donald Trump may likewise lose the current shutdown fight. He says he owns the shutdown stories percolate about...

    Do Democrats have a #MeToo problem?  Or more to the point, a pervert problem? Yet another prominent Democratic Party donor got arrested for sex with a 16-year-old.  Oregon Public Broadcasting reports: A prominent Democratic Party donor and gay rights activist has been charged with sex crimes involving a child younger than 16. Real estate developer Terry Bean pleaded not guilty to two counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse Thursday in Lane County court.  Prosecutors say the charges stem from an incident in September 2013.  A grand jury voted to indict Bean earlier this month, but the indictment was secret until his arraignment. His arrest...
  • Impeachment Will Be Good for Trump ( And Bad for Democrats )

    American Thinker ^ | 01/19/2019 | William Gensert
    Since Trump's election, the dream uniting all Democrats is to impeach the president. Having won the House and with a mere majority necessary to initiate Articles of Impeachment, that dream will finally come true – never mind that chances of conviction in the Senate are near nil, with 67 votes required to sustain and Republicans still in the majority. They will impeach because, as with the scorpion, it's their nature. It doesn't matter that after more than two years of investigation, President Trump has not been found to have committed any crime. Impeachment is not a criminal proceeding; it is...
