    Donald Trump travels to the border today, perhaps to declare a state of emergency but certainly to repeat the call for an impenetrable barrier along the frontier. A previously redacted report from the Department of Homeland Security suggests that they’re not having much success in finding such a model. According to NBC News, the report included photos of all eight prototype breached by Marines with ordinary household tools — including the “steel slats” fence.This might be news if anyone thought it was possible to build a wall that couldn’t be breached under any circumstances: EXCLUSIVE: DHS test of steel...
  • Elderly, conservatives shared more Facebook fakery in 2016

    When other demographic factors and overall posting tendencies are factored in, the average person older than 65 shared seven times more false information than those between 18 and 29. The seniors shared more than twice as many fake stories as people between 45 and 64 and more than three times that of people in the 30- to 44-year-old range, said lead study author Andrew Guess, a politics professor at Princeton. The simplest theory for why older people share more false information is a lack of "digital literacy," said study co-author Joshua Tucker, also co-director of the NYU social media political...
  • Democrats Faked Online Push to Outlaw Alcohol in Alabama Race

    New York Times ^ | January 7, 2019 | Scott Shane and Alan Blinder
    The “Dry Alabama” Facebook page, illustrated with stark images of car wrecks and videos of families ruined by drink, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. Along with a companion Twitter feed, the Facebook page appeared to be the work of Baptist teetotalers who supported the Republican, Roy S. Moore, in the 2017 Alabama Senate race. “Pray for Roy Moore,” one tweet exhorted. In fact, the Dry Alabama campaign, not previously reported, was the stealth creation of progressive Democrats who were out to defeat Mr. Moore — the second such secret...
  • Christine Blasey Ford Is the Poster Girl for Fake Sexual Assault Allegations

    It’s hard to say with certainty whether Christine Blasey Ford has memory issues, mental problems, or is just a liar, but it is crystal clear that her allegations that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh aren’t true. So, when Sports Illustrated shoehorned her into announcing an award, it seemed really strange. Crystal Mangum, the woman who falsely accused the Duke lacrosse team of rape seems like a better fit here, but since she’s in prison, Ford may have been the next best option. Of course, people get very angry when you point out the obvious fact that Ford made...
  • Trump thought Yellen was too short to be Fed chair

    (snip) --- Janet L. Yellen was the most qualified Federal Reserve chair we’ve ever had and maybe the most successful Federal Reserve chair we’ve ever had. But, in part because she was also the shortest Federal Reserve chair we’ve ever had, she wasn’t reappointed by President Trump. (snip) -- That’s not a joke, or at least not a deliberate one. Trump, according to The Washington Post, seems to believe that the Fed is a lot like a roller coaster: You have to be so tall to go on it. In particular, he thought that the 5-foot-3-inch Yellen was too short...

    Full title: Washington Post admits gaffe after putting story on Kavanaugh coaching basketball in ‘Public Safety’ sectionThe Washington Post admitted it made a blunder on Wednesday by placing a story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh coaching youth basketball under the “Public Safety” section online. Kavanaugh, who recently returned to coach his daughter’s basketball team, was famously accused of sexual assault during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Kavanaugh denied all allegations and was confirmed after an FBI investigation. Media watchdogs were then shocked when Ann Marimow’s Nov. 27 piece on his youth coaching appeared in the “Public Safety” section. However,...

    President Donald Trump shared his outrage after learning that one of the women accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of rape admitted that she fabricated her story. “It’s a damn disgrace,” Trump said, calling it a “filthy dirty lie.” The president commented on the news during a rally at the Bozeman, Montana airport on Saturday. “One of his accusers said it was all a lie, she made up the story. It was a total lie. It was fake,” Trump said. “She lied about the story about rape.” The accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, contacted the Senate Judiciary committee claiming that Kavanaugh and...

    A woman who accused Justice Kavanaugh of raping her when he was in high school has admitted to federal investigators that she made up the claims because she was "angry" and "wanted attention." Senator Grassley has now referred the false accuser to the Justice Department for investigation on Friday after her confession that she "just wanted to get attention" on Thursday.

    A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to "get attention."According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination. From the letter, bolding is mine:  Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3)...

    What happened to the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation battle? The claims ranged from Christine Blasey Ford’s remotely plausible if unsubstantiated allegation of a violent attempted rape to Michael Avenatti’s completely outlandish and also unsubstantiated allegation of hosting serial gang rape parties. From September 12 to October 6, the claims absolutely dominated all major media. They ran on the front pages of all major newspapers and filled the hours on cable and network news. Magazine journalists at The New Yorker ran with the claims, despite massive corroboration problems. The claims were taken so...

    If we learned anything from the Kavanaugh smear and the endless Russia collusion investigation, it’s that just as Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion, Democratic Party ideals are a religion masquerading as a political system. What they tried to do to Kavanaugh in declaring him a rapist with an absolute lack of evidence, has shown Americans that they do not care who gets hurt in their pursuit of power. How many male voters thought, “That could be me.” How many women voters thought, “That could be my husband; that could be my son.” Yet Kavanaugh is merely...

    The Kavanaugh confirmation circus is over and the fighters have gone back to their corners, but not before drawing massive amounts of blood. The Kavanaughs were injured, but they now have Secret Service protection and secure employment for life. There's someone else, though, who was beaten and bloodied and left for dead on the side of the road. Mark Judge, the other man accused by Christine Blasey Ford, has lost his job and his home. He is raising money on a GoFundMe alternative site called Funding Morality and has received $48,549 to date. Judge is a cancer survivor and Catholic...

    For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now. All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to...

    hen the Christine Ford saga finally ended with the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a lot of truth had distilled out, along with the evaporation of prior pretensions and misconceptions. The hearing confirmed that the traditional JFK/Hubert Humphrey Democrat party, as once envisioned by a Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, or Jim Webb, is long kaput. In its place is being birthed a hard-left progressive movement that absorbs the ideologies and methodologies of its base and that now incorporates all sorts, from Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist hipsters to Black Lives Matters, Antifa, and Occupy Wall Street protestors.

    Brandon Straka, the openly gay former Democrat behind the recent movement to #Walkaway from liberalism says he has seen an uptick in the number of people who say they’re ‘walking away’ from the Democratic party. He says hundreds of people have reached out to him since the Justice Brett Kavanaugh battle started, and he began receiving more video testimonials and messages from people who say they will now vote Republican because of the smear campaign launched against Kavanaugh. Straka also talks about the first #WalkAway Campaign march he will be hosting in Washington D.C. on Oct 26-28th. For more details...
  • Senate Has Duty To Immediately Investigate Feinstein, McLean

    Now that the Senate, with the aid of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has completed its confirmation process of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the question is what, if anything, does it have to do next? In light of the fact that a 36-year-old story was brought to the Senate for its serious consideration regarding a judicial nominee absent any corroborating information or evidence, the question that many ask is: Was this the result of a good faith presentation, or was it a concerted effort to disrupt the nomination process and derail the appointment of a qualified judicial nominee? If the answer to...

    Why can't we (MA) have a U.S senator like Susan Collins? Why can't our guys make a speech like that? After all, this is intellectual, sophisticated and progressive Massachusetts, not backwoods Maine. And Collins is from Caribou, of all places, not Cambridge. She is the descendant of lumberjacks, not professors. Instead we have one senator who has been in Washington so long that he lives there, not here. That is Sen. Eddie Markey of Chevy Chase, Maryland, who cannot put two sentences together unless they are written out for him. He called the FBI investigation into the unsubstantiated charges of...
