    President Trump lashed out at Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ for using a homophobic slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Brzezinski, in a discussion about Pompeo’s recent interview with ‘Fox & Friends,’said on Wednesday: “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care…But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox and Friends, is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s buttboy?” Trump reacted via Twitter on Thursday: “If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using...
  • When will liberals give Melania Trump the credit she deserves?

    In the year of the woman, First Lady Melania Trump is the greatest of them all. While the media is busy salivating over Hollywood actresses and radical female Democrats, it is Melania Trump who deserves recognition for everything she has done for women and children in the last two years. The mainstream media loves to portray Republicans as aggressive upholders of the “patriarchy” who seek to quash the cause of gender equality. Yet the ostensible feminists on the left often bully and intimidate strong conservative women, attacking them for their beliefs and values. This is why I was not surprised...

    Without the Washington Post hype, Carlson, in reality, is just another talking head whose fame has gone straight to his wobbly head. And not a very impressive one at that Two years on, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson has jumped aboard the full-to-the-gunwales Anti-Trump boat. The news of Carlson’s having jumped aboard the louder than any protest Anti-Trump boat surfaced one day after the mainstream and social media used the funeral of President George H.W. Bush to gang up on the president the media live to hate.

    If there was one thing it seemed most Americans could agree on this weekend it was that former President George H.W. Bush was generally a good man who had the country’s best interest at heart. And yet, somehow, the hosts of The View still found a way to turn his tribute into an argument on Monday morning. Things started off cordial enough with moderator Whoopi Goldberg noting how the remembrances from Presidents Clinton and Obama have helped remind us “how you can still not agree with somebody but be respectful of somebody.” “He seemed to be coming from a loving,...

    Homer Simpson’s ignorance of New Mexico’s statehood is now being replicated by multiple real life government employees in Washington D.C. When I read this recent news article, it reminded me of this joke from The Simpsons. In 1993, during the season 5 episode “Boy-Scoutz ‘n the Hood,” Homer was shown to not know that New Mexico was a U.S. state. Here’s a video of it:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3jYO0TKcm4When I was searching for that video, I found out that The Simpsons had later recycled that same joke with Mr. Burns seven seasons later in the episode “Homer vs. Dignity,” which I had never seen, because...

    A study by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, found that liberals talk down to blacks. The research found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches to audiences consisting mostly of minorities than they did in speeches to mostly white audiences. "It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle, but persistent effect," Dupree lamented. "Even if it's ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing." Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez defended the practice of talking down to minorities and cited his Party's recent success in taking back...

    The recently released rules for White House press conference participants were excoriated by MSNBC talking head Chuck Todd as “absurd.” Under the announced rules each member of the press will be expected to yield the floor to another member of the press corps after asking a question unless the President, Press Secretary, or other official conducting the press conference allows a follow-up question, after which the questioner will be expected to yield the floor to a colleague. “Insisting that we politely take turns is treating us like children,” Todd complained. “I mean, it’s not as if any member of the...

    Socialism is not the end game - one world government ruled by the globalist elite is the real intent and grand prize The Fabian Society, a British think tank founded in London in 1884, is named after the Roman general Quintus Fabius Maximus whose battle strategy was one of harassment and attrition rather than violent military battles against the Carthaginian army under general Hannibal. Fabius had much in common with the great Chinese warrior and strategist Sun Tzu who wrote the extraordinary military treatise The Art of War in the 5th century BC. According to Sun Tzu, “The supreme art...

    She’s running. I am convinced of it. Hillary Clinton just can’t help herself. The woman can’t get off the stage and get on with her life. While most of the headlines coming out of her recent series of interviews given to The Guardian were about her ironic call for limited migration in Europe, she also delivered some interesting nuggets in regard to the American press. And, of course, the demise of the Republican party. She actually says that President Trump hasn’t been held accountable enough to suit her. “The Republican party has collapsed in the face of Trump,” she said....

    The welfare state and socialist redistribution schemes demoralize and debase a society I am a Star Trek fan, like millions and millions of others on the planet. In later versions of the franchise, the great threat to the star fleet and the Federation was the Borg. The Borg, if I remember correctly, was about the collective—that total lack of individuality among beings and a complete lack of liberty for those civilizations that had been conquered. If one did not submit, then elimination of that civilization was the obligation of the Borg. Their goal was perfection. Does any of this sound...

    White House officials are planning to suspend CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass again, after a judge ordered them to temporarily restore it Friday, CNN has reported. Officials sent a letter to Acosta with a view to revoking his newly regained privileges at the end of the month, the network stated. CNN issued a statement Sunday claiming officials were “[violating] the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution.” “These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations,” the statement continued. “Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President.” Officials revoked Acosta’s press...

    That’s an article from 13 years ago, at a critical moment in the history of broadcasting. Yes, the American Cinema Foundation was hosting a big Hollywood event, a national online conversation about the future of PBS, sponsored by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Yes, the American Cinema Foundation was well known as a group of Hollywood conservatives. The irony of that title is that what keynote speaker Rob Long demanded wasn’t a seat at the PBS table at all. He wanted it ended, but in the nicest, wittiest, most reasonable way. For weeks, the “blob” of employees and administrators of...

    The administration is drawing up rules for White House reporters' behavior, and the president said if journalists don't follow them, 'we'll end up back in court, and we'll win.' CNN and Jim Acosta may have won their battle with the White House in court on Friday, but President Donald Trump has found a new weapon in his long war against the media. After a judge ruled that the White House violated the CNN correspondent’s right to due process by stripping him of his press badge, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declared that the administration was drawing up new rules to...

    President Trump on Wednesday expressed hope the White House would defeat CNN in a lawsuit over his decision to suspend the press credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, whom he called “bad for the country.” In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump railed against Acosta, calling him a “rude” person whose “grandstanding” is unfair to the broader White House press corps. “I really think that when you have guys like Acosta, I think they’re bad for the country,” Trump told the conservative website. “He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.”...

    Americans already distrust the mainstream media (MSM). A January 16, 2018 Gallup Poll found that distrust of the news media has soared in recent decades, from 25% of U.S. adults in 1989 to 45% today saying there was a great deal of political bias in news coverage. 66% of Americans say that news media “do not do a good job” of “separating fact from opinion” (86% of Republicans; 44% of Democrats). And no wonder. Did you know that a study by Indiana University professors Lars Willnat and David H. Weaver found that in 2013, only 7.1% of full-time U.S. journalists...
