    President Trump on Wednesday cheered the news that attorneys representing a high school student involved in a now-infamous confrontation with a Native American activist last month are suing The Washington Post. The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Kentucky, accused the Post of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Nicholas Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles ... to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president." The suit...

    When a prominent Democrat has lost Chuck Todd, the handwriting is on the wall. Three days ago, I predicted that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was sealing her fate when she took (and probably deserved) credit for killing the deal that would have brought 25,000 high-paying Amazon jobs to New York City.  It's not that the young woman with boundless self-confidence in her views has no clue about how tax incentives work (though that is obviously true, since she crowed that the $3 billion in tax abatements could be spent on subways, schools, and the like).  Ignorance and simple-mindedness are no obstacles to a Democrat winning...
  • WP Rep‘Heartbroken’Smollett May Have Staged Attack, Says She ‘Needs it to Be True’

    In an extremely dark op-ed for the Washington Post, the executive assistant for the editorial board lamented about how heartbroken she will be if Jussie Smollett wasn’t actually targeted in a hate crime. Instead of feeling relief that maybe there isn’t as much hate out there as she thought, Nana Efua Mumford wrote about her heartbreak that maybe he wasn’t actually attacked by some evil Trump supporters in an article titled, “I doubted Jussie Smollett. It breaks my heart that I might be right.”

    VIDEO Fading Aussie actor, Ben Esler, whom I never heard of until today, attacked your humble correspondent for an article he wrote in Newsbusters about the Jussie Smollett hate hoax. As you will see his attack is chock full of liberal by-the-numbers virtue signalling. Just to show there are no hard feelings, ol' PJ performs the ultimate act of kindness at the end of this video by attesting that Mr. Esler is indeed a liberal in good standing and thus deserving of more important acting roles than he has gotten in the past few years during his long sad fade...

    I’m publicly asking the Washington Post to please either confirm of debunk PJ Media’s “evidence” that Ilhan Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud PJ Media is a right wing website. It’s not considered to be part of the mainstream media, and you certainly can’t cite it as a source when adding content to wikipedia.That being said, I am a long term reader of PJ Media, and I tend to view most of what it publishes as being credible. I certainly don’t have anything against the website.PJ Media has published what it claims are photographs, school records, and...

    On Sunday morning, de Blasio responded in the affirmative when Chuck Todd of NBC News’ “Meet the Press” asked if the tax breaks offered to Amazon weren’t “money you had over here. And it was going over there.” The Democratic mayor said: “And that $3 billion that would go back in tax incentives was only after we were getting the jobs and getting the revenue.” ... “If we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves, if we wanted to.

Here’s 12 establishment media commentators and journalists who fueled the Jussie Smollett flames with impassioned and uncritical reactions to the Empire actor’s imaginative account of his supposed run-in with Trump supporters in “MAGA country” Chicago. 1.

    [snip] I wanted to believe Smollett. I really did. I know that there is a deep, dark racist history in Chicago and, if proved true, this would be just one more point on the list. I wanted to believe him with every fiber of my being, most of all because the consequences if he were lying were almost too awful to contemplate. And yet I struggled with Smollett’s story. I tried telling myself that it is possible that two assailants were walking around downtown Chicago at 2 a.m. in January in 10-degree weather, waiting for a black victim. In addition...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says amazon’s salaries of $150,000 a year for 25,000 new jobs in New York City constitute “scraps” and are not “dignified.” Meanwhile, she only pays her own interns $15 an hour. In November 2018, CNBC reported:Amazon will pay HQ2 employees an average of $150,000On February 16, explaining why she opposed amazon creating 25,000 new jobs in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said:“We need to create dignified jobs in New York City”and“We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world”I wonder how high those amazon salaries would have to be in order for Ocasio-Cortez...

    At least 38 paramilitary police officers were killed by a massive car bomb in Indian-controlled Kashmir in the worst attack on security personnel since the start of the insurgency in the disputed region three decades ago. The attack occurred Thursday afternoon about 3:15 p.m., police officials said, as a security convoy of 70 vehicles traveled down a major highway toward the city of Srinagar. An explosives-laden vehicle driven by a suicide bomber rammed into a bus carrying dozens of paramilitary personnel, said Sanjay Sharma, a spokesman for India’s Central Reserve Police Force. The killings will inflame tensions between nuclear-armed rivals...

    People are often judged according to those with whom they associate, and in the case of AOC’s Chief of Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, the congresswoman-elect may well find herself destined for trouble. Ask yourself a question: If President Donald Trump hired a person who openly shows support for a Nazi collaborator, how long would that staff member last? And perhaps more importantly, how tarnished would the president’s brand be?… …Saikat Chakrabarti is a highly motivated, smart guy. A Harvard grad, he founded a web tools company, Mockingbird. He is a founder of Justice Democrats, the PAC set up with The Young...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the soul of the Democrat Party. By definition, she is crazy. Take her very seriously. Jeff Bezos did not. He had, after all, bought off the equally crazy mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, to get the city to pay for a second Amazon "headquarters" there. Now the deal has fallen through. Fingers are pointed by the political and media class, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is spiking the ball. She should. She killed it. New York City is a socialist mess with an underbrush of rules and taxes so thick that no one can navigate it without...

Feb. 16, 2019 The first word I had that Amazon was about to scrap an agreement to bring 25,000 new jobs to New York City came an hour before it broke in the news on Thursday. The call was brief and there was little explanation for the company’s reversal. Just days before, I had counseled a senior Amazon executive about how they could win over some of their critics....

    President Donald Trump is known for boasting about having “the best words,” but Kellyanne Conway’s husband, attorney George Conway, is having none of it. On Friday, George Conway, who has been critical of the Trump administration even though his wife is a senior White House adviser, upped the ante by ripping the president’s oratorical skills. Conway’s post on Twitter linked to a Washington Post column by Henry Olsen that lambasted what he called Trump’s ”rambling and disjointed explanation” for why he is declaring a national emergency to fund a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. For Conway, the key quote...

    President Trump delivered one of the longest State of the Union speeches, clocking in at 82 minutes. Trump covered a great number of issues, including the high cost of prescription drugs, the opioid crisis, estate taxes and a new government-wide initiative that will focus on the economic empowerment of women in developing countries. Although Trump didn’t talk about the $5.7 billion in funds he’s been demanding for a border wall, he spent a fair amount of time talking about illegal immigration. “My administration has sent to Congress a common-sense proposal to end the crisis on the southern border," Trump said....
