    Deep State operatives are leaking false stories on the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts ahead of a huge release in order to control the narrative. Former Acting DNI Ric Grenell already declassified the Flynn transcripts and John Ratcliffe, who was sworn is as the new Director of National Intelligence is set to release the transcripts soon! So now the Deep State is working with the media to spin, spin, spin. NBC News hack Geoff Bennett reported on Thursday afternoon that according to a ‘former Trump admin official,’ the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Grenell declassified are written summaries of the calls, not audiotapes. Deep State...
  • WaPo Is Not Even Pretending to Be Unbiased Anymore

    Are media outlets supposed to be openly collaborating with presidential candidates to promote their campaigns? Is that a thing now? It’s not like the news even pretends to be unbiased anymore, but what you’re about to watch seems like something new. ... I’m not a journalist or a lawyer, so I can’t speak to any ethical or legal concerns about the second-biggest newspaper in America openly collaborating with one of the candidates during a presidential campaign. I assume it’s all above board, or WaPo wouldn’t have approved it. If they want to look like they’re directly working for Biden’s campaign,...

    GOP senator and Obama administration Defense secretary, says he's voting for Democrat Joe Biden over Republican Donald Trump in November. Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis. "If Iraq is a sovereign nation and wants to continue to exist, they’re the ones...

    "Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her," the New Mexico Republican Party tweeted Wednesday. "A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end jewelry." Just a day before, Whitmer was forced to address reports that her husband had used her name at a dock to help get their boat placed in the water faster ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. “My husband made a failed attempt at humor last week when checking in...

    Kathy Griffin advocated plunging an air-filled syringe into President Trump. Reacting to a tweet from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, which said Trump pondered whether or not he should be given an insulin regimen at a White House diabetes event on Tuesday, the comedienne said: "Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick. F--- TRUMP."
  • France revokes decree authorising use of hydroxychloroquine to treat Covid-19

    The French government on Wednesday revoked a decree authorising hospitals to prescribe the controversial drug for Covid-19 patients after France’s public health watchdog warned against its use to treat the disease. The drug has been the subject of much debate in France, where “maverick” Professor Didier Raoult claimed in March to have successfully treated Covid-19 patients using a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin. However, doctors have questioned the value of Professor Raoult’s study, saying it was poorly designed and based on too small a sample to offer hard evidence of benefit.

    The Justice Department said on Wednesday that it opposes House-proposed changes to surveillance reform legislation and will urge President Trump to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. The statement, from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, is the latest setback for the legislation, which is currently scheduled to get a vote on the House floor on Wednesday, after Trump on Tuesday night urged GOP opposition to vote against it. The veto threat from the Justice Department is a marked shift from March, when Attorney General William Barr helped negotiate the initial version of the bill with House leadership. The...

    President Trump said Wednesday that he will “strongly regulate” or even “close down” social media platforms, one day after Twitter flagged two of his posts. The president made the vow on Twitter after the social media platform added a message to the tweets that linked to a page disputing the accuracy of his posts. Trump and other conservatives argue that social media is censuring or silencing their messages. Read more “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump said over two tweets Wednesday morning. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow...

    Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer said on Monday that he was surprised to hear President Trump say that Tara Reade's sexual assault allegations against 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden sound “credible.” “Frankly, if I were the president, I would just stay out of that because this is what we got into with Kavanaugh, right? 'Was it credible, was it not credible, were there corroborating witnesses?’” the former White House press secretary said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

    Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday blasted the media for its lack of response to the announcement that Robert Mueller's former prosecutor Andrew Weissmann will headline a virtual fundraiser for the Biden campaign. The campaign said publicly Wednesday that Weissmann will headline a “virtual fireside chat” moderated by Anne Milgram -- the former New Jersey attorney general -- on June 2. The chat will take place on Zoom, and “guests who RSVP by making a contribution... will be sent instructions for how to join via Zoom,” according to the invitation from the Biden “Victory Fund.”

    Conservatives have long been blowing the whistle on Wikipedia’s leftist bias. The site’s co-founder Larry Sanger apparently agrees with them. In a blog post last week, Sanger argued that Wikipedia has abandoned all neutrality in the name of avoiding what activist journalists call the “false balance” – the idea that not all opposing views of an argument should be given equal time. He goes through several pages to support his thesis, noting the rather charged language often employed. When comparing the pages for former President Barack Obama and the current President Donald Trump, the differences are night and day, with...

    Paul Feig, the director and co-writer of the 2016 “Ghostbusters” reboot, noted in a recent interview about the film that he believes the “anti-Hillary movement” played a big role in the movie’s negative perception. The 57-year-old director’s announcement in 2015 that he would reboot the beloved comedy franchise with an all-female cast led by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones drew a slew of criticism from fans of the original movies. The film ultimately underperformed at the box office, only earning $229.1 million worldwide. Speaking in an interview on Jess Cagle’s SiriusXM show, Feig explained that he...

It's the second time the clip has emerged in recent years and has reignited the debate on blackface and cancel culture. Most recently it surfaced when Megyn Kelly was let go from The Today Show in 2018 after she defended blackface Halloween costumes.

    The traditional White House portrait unveiling may be skipped for the first time in decades amid bad blood between Trump and Obama. WASHINGTON — It’s been a White House tradition for decades: A first-term president hosts a ceremony in the East Room for the unveiling of the official portrait of his immediate predecessor that will hang in the halls of the White House for posterity. Republican presidents have done it for Democratic presidents, and vice versa — even when one of them ascended to the White House by defeating or sharply criticizing the other. “We may have our differences politically,”...

In a first, a "get the facts" alert now appears underneath tweets sent out by President Trump on Tuesday in which he asserted mail-in ballots will lead to voter fraud.

The tweets in question specifically target mail-in ballots being used in California during the coronavirus...

    Actress Kristin Davis opened up recently about her fear for the safety of her 5-year-old daughter, who is black, after Donald Trump’s Nov. 8 victory. A reported spike in hate crimes since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential election has raised concerns of a continued increase in racially motivated acts of violence. “I’m on the intense learning curve because I have to protect my child,” the “Sex and the City” star said in a “How I Got Over” interview with WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll. “I might have had the intellectual learning curve that we all hope and wish we...

    Tim O’Brien, a former campaign aide for Mike Bloomberg and a Bloomberg opinion writer, is coming under fire for posting side-by-side photos of Joe Biden at a war memorial on Memorial Day and a photo of President Trump golfing on a different day with the caption, “Different approaches to Memorial Day.” The photo of Joe Biden was taken when Biden visited Delaware Memorial Bridge Veteran's Memorial Park. It was the former vice president’s first outing since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. He and wife Jill Biden, both wearing masks, laid a wreath at a memorial wall commemorating war veterans...

Barrett, in an interview with Fox News, said that over the weekend he initially heard a story on Facebook about someone purportedly calling NorthShore Dock LLC, a company that reportedly stores the family's boat, and mentioning that he is married to...
