    <p>NEW YORK - An estimated 35.3 million people saw President Donald Trump and Democratic leaders speak to the nation on border security and the partial government shutdown.</p> <p>That's about 10 million fewer viewers than Trump had for his 2018 State of the Union address. The Nielsen company said Wednesday it was similar to President Barack Obama's 2014 presidential address on fighting the Islamic state, which was seen by 34 million people.</p>

    Once again his political instincts prove accurate. But I’m glad he gave the speech anyway. We got some sweet-ass Pelosi/Schumer memes out of it. They look like rich parents being told their loutish son just got kicked out of college again pic.twitter.com/49ZUXSHbyn— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) January 9, 2019 Here’s the Times reporting on POTUS’s pre-speech lunch with TV hosts yesterday. Attendees weren’t allowed to discuss publicly what Trump said to them, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t gossip to their colleagues in the media: Yet privately, Mr. Trump dismissed his own new strategy as pointless. In an off-the-record lunch with...
  • Prosecutor Investigating Whether Anti-LGBTQ Manifesto Is Punishable [Netherlands]

    NL Times ^ | January 9, 2018 | Janene Pieters
    The Public Prosecution Service will assess whether the controversial Nashville declaration is punishable, the Prosecutor announced after a commotion arose about a Dutch translation of the anti-LGBTQ text that has now been signed by hundreds of pastors and other orthodox Christians in the Netherlands. How long this assessment will take, is not yet clear, AD reports. The declaration explicitly rejects homosexuality and transgender people, and suggests that sexual orientation and gender are things people can be "cured" of. It also stresses that marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman. In the assessment, the Public Prosecutor will determine...

    It started out with an isolated case here and there. In 2005, Oriana Fallaci was put on trial in Italy for her anti-Islam book The Force of Reason. In 2010 and again in 2011, politician Geert Wilders was tried in the Netherlands for publicly criticizing Islam. In 2011, the Danish Lars Hedegaard was found guilty by a Danish court of hate speech for having, in the privacy of his own home, made reference to the frequency of incest rape in Muslim communities. (The verdict was later reversed by the Danish Supreme Court.) Also in 2011, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was tried...

    A children's speech pathologist who has worked for the last nine years with developmentally disabled, autistic, and speech-impaired elementary school students in Austin, Texas, has been told that she can no longer work with the public school district, after she refused to sign an oath vowing that she does not and will not engage in a boycott of Israel or otherwise tak[e] any action that is intended to inflict economic harm on that foreign nation. A lawsuit on her behalf was filed early Monday morning in a federal court in the Western District of Texas, alleging a violation of her...

    A Los Angeles college student who sued his school for allegedly curbing his right to free speech after it prevented him from passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution was vindicated in court this week. The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), which represents nine schools, including Pierce College, agreed on Wednesday to settle a lawsuit filed against them last year by student Kevin Shaw after he was barred from passing out copies of the document because he wasnt in the schools designated free speech zone, which measured 616 square feet or about the size of three parking spaces.

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 19 Nov, 2018 | Ralph Schllhammer, Baron Bodissey
    Much has been reported in the past few days on the decision by the European Court of Human Rights that the designation of the Prophet Mohammed as pedophilic in the context of a 2009 seminar led by the Austrian Islam-critic Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is not legally covered by the right of free expression of opinion. The waves caused by this decision were detectable even in the USA, where the popular Fox show, Tucker Carlson dedicated a full segment to the case. Independent of whether this was a scandalous decision, it indicates a disturbing trend: a re-clericalization of public space in which...

    The domain Gab.com has landed at Epik. This post will summarize why Epik welcomed Gab.com. It will also address why I believe the operators of the site have the right to be online. De-Platforming is Digital Censorship. Blacklisting is Digital Shunning. For those not familiar with the case, Gab.coms ability to operate was abruptly terminated by Godaddy, among other vendors, who deemed Gab to have violated their terms of service. This de-platforming of Gab generated much discussion in the mainstream technology press. It also prompted a lively discussion in the professional domain name community, including at the popular discussion board...
  • Obama Talking like a Fruit Cake in Wisconsin (Oky Doky alert!)

    I know it's often painful to listen to President Barky give a speech. But listen to him speak in Wisconsin the other day. Tell me the guy is not losing it. I queued up the video at the 24 minute mark. The next two minutes are great for a laugh. He's obviously trying to sound natural like Trump, but he can't pull it off. He stammers and can't get his words out. He also overdoes his gestures and tries to speak in various voices. Is Trump in this guy's head or what? Bhaahaha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taVde5N-GG4

    The Federalist ^ | 09/13/2018 | By Benjamin R. Dierker
    English police are now calling on citizens to report hate incidents. Reporting friends and neighbors to the police has terrible historical connotation, and for good reason. It is legitimate fascism. Timid citizenries are easy to control — fear that even a coworker could file a report to the police can keep people in check.The latest call for action in England is from the South Yorkshire Police on Twitter. Similar reporting requests are posted on the United Kingdom government website. Two tweets from the South Yorkshire Police over the weekend requesting citizens to report hate matters to police should grab...

    Duh....Who DAT there? Why it's ex-failed, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama. We keep looking for his legacy...but, sadly, there is none. Only tons of negatives..."GALORE"!!! What there is lots of, very strongly, is the Obama Self-Adoration, Massive Egomaniac. In his recent speech to college students in Illinois, he used the word "I" 102 times in forty-seven minutes. What a guy...or, what a "ZERO". Your choice!!! Hey, Scumer & Pelois, I got news for you all. Obama ain't the savior of the Democrat Party. Obama cannot save himself...period.

Talk about a gent in love with himself. POTUS, Trump is going to have a ball beating the self-loving, adoree, Obama, who can only play to rigged, set-up, audiences, like college "brainwashed" kids in Illnois, Shucks...it's Hillary Clinton, 2.0 all over again. The big last ditch effort & ploy to put a Democrat Party leader (Obama) out front to take down POTUS, Trump has failed already. Instead of going after Trump, which Obama did to...

Lewinsky addressed the Channel 2 news conference about her experiences in the wake of the revelations of her affair with then-US president Bill Clinton. Following her speech, Lewinsky sat down for a scheduled talk with news anchor Yonit Levi. Levi asked Lewinsky if she was still expecting a private apology from Clinton after all these years. Lewinsky simply answered: Im sorry, Im not going to be able to do this, and quickly walked...
