    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/17/2018 | Joe Newby
    On Thursday, President Trump gave a speech addressing the administration’s efforts to modernize the Department of Veterans Affairs. But for some reason, the Presidential Seal and the White House logo were blurred out of the Facebook Live video, something which didn’t go unnoticed. “The video of Trump giving gratitude to veterans has the Presidential Seal obscured. Pretty straightforward to do, like what Google does for faces and license plates on Streetview, but requires dedicated compute resources – it doesn’t happen by accident,” said a post at Free Republic. “Probably somebody inside the company thinking they’re doing something cheeky. This kind...
  • Trump Raises the Stakes With CNN

    Last week, the White House revoked the press pass of CNN's chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, and denied him access to the building. CNN responded by filing suit in federal court against the president. Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights had been violated, said CNN. The demand: Acosta's press pass must be returned immediately and his White House press privileges restored. "If left unchallenged," CNN warned, "the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials." A dozen news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post,...

    "It's getting to the point, where I'm no fun anymore." -- Suite: Judy Blue Eyes Morning Joe might consider adopting the Crosby, Stills & Nash hit as its theme song. Because a show that in the not-that-distant past was at times entertaining and even insightful has been reduced to nothing but an utterly predictable, and hence boring, Trump-trolling mess. On Morning Joe, every day is Groundhog Day. But instead of Cher belting out "I Got You Babe," it's the panel singing the same—old—song, which might be entitled "We Hate Trump." Take this morning—which could have been any morning—in which the...
  • Election 2018 in Context: A Political System Out of Sync with the Nation It's Supposed to Serve

    In the wake of Election 2018, analysts have delved deeply into a seemingly limitless supply of data points to explain the details of what happened. What role did suburban women play? Or health care? Was there a Kavanaugh effect? This obsession with details may be causing us to miss the bigger picture of what's going on. Donald Trump became the fourth consecutive president to win the presidency with his party in control of Congress and then lose control. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama have all been there before. This swapping back and forth of political...
  • If Trump Is 'Racist,' He Needs to Go Back to Racism School

    11/15/2018 6:46:18 AM PST · by Kaslin ^ | November 15, 2018 | Larry Elder
    Abraham Lincoln, when informed that General Ulysses S. Grant was a drunk, famously asked Grant's accusers what whiskey he was drinking so Lincoln could send a barrel to every general in the army. Keep this in mind when President Donald Trump's critics accuse him of "racism" against blacks. Under this "racist" President, black unemployment, since the government began keeping numbers, hit an all-time low in May. Polls show that inner-city parents want choice in education: specifically, they want the means to opt out of sending their children to an under-performing government school the child has been mandated to attend....
  • Ending the Year Off Right: GOP Plans to Make THIS Vital Move Before the New Congress Begins

    Now that the midterm elections are over, Republicans have decided to use the next two months to be productive during a lame-duck session. According to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Republican senators will work through New Year's Eve to confirm all of President Donald Trump's pending judicial nominations, The Washington Times reported. The decision comes after Democrats made a pact to take the maximum amount of time to debate Trump's picks, which could severely hinder the GOP's legislative priority of packing the federal courts with conservative judges. “I know that Sen. McConnell has made a commitment that we’re not going to leave any...

    Constitutional attorney and conservative radio host Mark Levin is weighing in on CNN's lawsuit against the White House. CNN filed the lawsuit today on behalf of correspondent Jim Acosta. His press credentials were pulled last week after he got into a physical altercation with a White House intern over a microphone. "I just read CNN's lawsuit against the administration over Jim Acosta. It's a very weak case, but if they get before an Obama or Clinton district judge, who knows. CNN hired Ted Olson's firm, and he has signed onto the lawsuit. Olson was hired for a few reasons: 1....

    In short, the case of Cable News Network (hereinafter “CNN”) v. President Donald J. Trump (hereinafter “Trump”), to use a legal phrase --- sucks.  I sympathize with CNN in the sense that they feel wronged that reporter Jim Acosta was bounced from the White House to report on the president and the news coming from the White House, yet they don’t have a legal leg to stand on.  The president has a right to allow or not allow anybody he wants to cover him at the White House.CNN’s claim is that the federal courts have the power to compel inclusion...

    Former West Virginia state senator and retired U.S. Army major Richard Ojeda has made things official. He plans to run for president as a Democrat in 2020, despite a highly-anticipated, overly-packed Democratic field of contenders. Ojeda made the decision after losing his congressional bid in WV-03 last Tuesday, The Intercept reported. Ojeda's plan is simple: to go back to the Democratic Party's roots. He believes the Democrats can win over working people if they paint President Donald Trump out to be a populist fraud and paint a stark contract to Trump's inability to "drain the swamp.""I have been a Democrat ever since...

    Winning: The number of Americans on supplemental food assistance fell dramatically during POTUS Donald Trump’s first two years in office and is now at its lower level since 2009. According to Department of Agriculture which manages the food benefits, 38,845,997 Americans participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) as of the end of July. That’s the lowest number since 38,184,306 people were on SNAP in 2009, Breitbart reported. Moreover, the total number of households on SNAP fell below 20 million to 19.5 million, the lowest since 2010.

Nope, they're out to Get Trump.

    PARIS — At least three topless women jumped a barricade to confront President Trump's motorcade Sunday as he traveled to a ceremony to commemorate the centennial of World War I's end. The incident occurred as Trump drove along the Champs Elysees roadway from the U.S. ambassador's residence toward the Arc de Triomphe, where more than 60 world leaders gathered to mark Armistice Day. Femen, a feminist group that has staged similar topless protests, claimed responsibility, saying on Twitter the women were protesting the "hypocrisy" of the event. The words "fake" and "peace" were written on one woman's body as she...

Winner No. 1: President Donald TrumpTrump pulled off a miracle. He became only the fifth incumbent president to add Senate seats in the past 105 years. He picked up new seats in Florida, Missouri, Indiana and North Dakota. Blue wave? There was no blue wave. Senate victories look more like a red wave ... but not for the GOP.

    When Bill Clinton was running for president in 1992, his campaign strategist James Carville gave him the formula for success: Focus on the economy. In Carville's famous words, “It’s the economy, stupid.”Today, President Trump could easily campaign with a similar mantra, since many Americans are pleased with the economic uptick under his leadership.But, in terms of a lasting legacy, in terms of societal impact, the real mantra should be, “It’s the courts, stupid.” You can be assured that Trump and his Republican colleagues have a good grasp on this already.And now, with a strengthened majority in the Senate, the sky...

    Full title: Jeff Flake reportedly considering 2020 Trump challenge: 'Somebody needs to run on the Republican side'Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake isn’t shutting the door on a possible White House run against President Trump. The Arizona lawmaker – who announced last year that he would not be seeking re-election to the Senate – told Politico Friday that he hasn’t “ruled it out,” nor has he “ruled it in.” “Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side,” Flake said, adding that he thought Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., would also be good Republican alternatives to challenge...

    The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish. A postelection truce that began with Trump congratulating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- "I give her a great deal of credit for what she's done and what she's accomplished" -- was ancient history by nightfall. With the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his replacement by his chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, the long-anticipated confrontation with Robert Mueller appears at hand. Sessions had recused himself from the oversight role of...

    Reporters are supposed to hunt for facts, to search for the truth, and their best tool is a good question. Knowing a good question and knowing how and when to ask it are skills prized by the wisest members of society from Talmudic times in Judea to the philosophers of ancient Greece and China. As Hillel the Elder, the philosopher Socrates, and many other wise thinkers knew, great truths reveal themselves to those who ask good questions. Making a bold statement or throwing an insult or a challenge will get you an opportunity for a photo -- a “photo-op,” but...
