You Never Once Saw A Picture OF Michelle Obama Like This....


Shining a Light On the Media's Sycophantry


DT- Amy Chozick, a so-called “political reporter” for The New York Times published a new book Monday, “Chasing Hillary,” that recounts her experiences “chasing this luminous figure” since meeting her as a child, as reported by Kyle Smith of National Review.

In the book Chozick readily admits that she dreamed of she and Clinton trying on clothes together at a fashion retailer named Zara, that when she touched Clinton’s shoulder at a party she “felt the luscious satin of her chartreuse tunic beneath my palm". She admitted that “it felt damn good” to “bask in the girl power” when Clinton won the Democrat nomination and readily admits that she found Clinton’s email scandal uninteresting and irrelevantYes, of course, because who the hell cares if Clinton’s recklessness compromised the identity of a CIA informant who later wound up dead, right? RIGHT?


Chozick also admits that practically every other female leftist-media reporter felt the same way as her about their queen:

"Chozick says that perhaps 18 out of 20 reporters on the Hillary beat on a typical day were women, and she makes it clear that this wasn’t an accident: The crew were excited about the prospect of what they dubbed the “FWP,” for First Woman President. When awaiting an offer from the campaign to take a group photo with their idol, Chozick relates that the reporters excitedly chattered amongst themselves about the prospect in text messages. It doesn’t make the women look great."
Nor does it make them look great that when some pretty boy actor who supports Clinton showed up to talk to them, they started acting like horny monkeys:[H]is ‘feral grey eyes’ caused the women ‘to abandon whatever story we were working on to flip our hair and ask useless questions.'” It also doesn’t help their image that after Clinton lost the election, they experienced a “breakdown” and had to comfort one another with shoulder patting. Yet Chozick had the audacity to write that “I still wanted, more than anything, for Hillary to see me as a fair reporter,” before admitting, “The less I interacted with Hillary, the greater her imperial hold on my brain became.

Behold the liberal mainstream media, ladies and gentlemen … These are same charlatans who argue daily “that the mainstream media should be the key verifiers of information, that alternative news outlets are somehow shoddy in their pursuit of the facts while outlets like the Times are the gold standard. 


These are likewise the same amoral, unethical swine who believe self-avowed commentators should be silenced because their perspectives lack legitimacy. And theirs DON’T? A far-left and utterly blind media, to be more specific, that still remains perplexed at why a majority of Americans view them as “fake news.” - Read More

"INTERROGATING ZUCKERBERG" — A Bad Lip Reading

Woman Who is Running For President Who Insist She Isn't Running For President Is Cranking Up A Presidential Campaign

She Slept Her Way To The Top in California. Now She Wants To Be Your Lady President

Kamala Harris, freshman senator from California who is has been referred to by some dems as Obama 2.0 and a potential candidate for president in 2020, is reported to have spent in upwards of $400,00 from her campaign's war chest on advertisements in just the first quarter of this year according to the Federal Election Commission. Harris, a former girlfriend of San Fran Mayor Willie Brown, insisted that she is not thinking about running for president, not thinking about it mainly because she's already decided she is, has spent vast sums of money on the ads despite only just beginning the second year of her six year term.

The Free Beacon has the 411 on the cash:
"Harris's campaign disbursed cash to Revolution Messaging, LLC, a Washington, D.C.-based progressive online media firm that is credited with propelling Sen. Bernie Sanders's dark horse candidacy against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Democratic primary. The firm has won numerous awards for its work on behalf of the Sanders campaign. 
Harris's campaign made three payments totaling $356,539.43 to Revolution Messaging for web advertisements during the first quarter of 2018, which spans from Jan. 1 to March 30, the campaign's most recent filings show. Harris, who spent another $25,125 with Revolution for campaign consulting, paid $247,750 to Authentic Campaigns Inc., a digital strategy company, for consulting services during the first three months of the year. These expenditures came on the heels of the campaign spending $513,866.60 on web advertisements during the fourth quarter of last year. During the first three quarters of 2017, Harris's campaign disbursed a total of $567,487.20 on digital web ads."
The California senator has brought in a number of former Clinton campaign vets to work in her Washington, D.C. congressional office and her campaign is also renting office space from a small travel agency  just minutes away from the Capitol building. She's what you'd expect to be.....in support of single-payer health care and free college tuition, and despite being the former California Attorney General and presently sits on the Judiciary Committee, she has publicly supported the Black Lives Matter Movement. You can expect to see more of her during the roll up to mid-terms, and  the beginings of a  full court press in the media starting in early 2019.

Feminist Hope to Detoxify Masculinity by Dressing Up as Men (Who Act Like Women)

A Society That Believes All This Nonsense Probably 
Deserves to Die Out. 
PJM - "For a while now, feminists have been trying to find a way to combat “toxic masculinity.” The feminist belief that rape and other sexual crimes stem from societal norms about masculinity has caused the term “toxic” to come to encompass any behavior that is traditionally considered male. So, to combat toxic masculinity, one must weed out all behaviors that are seen as masculine. Which, of course, leaves only behaviors that are seen as feminine. Which means pretty much everyone would have to act like a woman.  

A recent article at HuffPost suggests a way to mainstream the idea that, in order to combat toxic masculinity, men must act like women. The article, called “It’s Time For Drag Kings To Detoxify Masculinity On TV,” is written by a drag king named Goldie Peacock. A drag king — for all you unenlightened sexist misogynists out there — is a woman who identifies as a woman but impersonates a man.

Peacock’s idea is that, because actual men have all been socially conditioned to be “toxic,” we need actual women to pretend to be men to show us what men could be like if they weren’t all so darn toxic.


Since there’s actually no such thing as men and women, a woman pretending to be a man pretty much is a man — the perfect man, according to feminists, because he acts like a woman, which isn’t really a thing, but never mind.

So, if we ditched the “male” and “female” labels for all human traits and just called them “traits,” feminists believe that all the traditionally “female” traits are good and all the traditionally “male” traits are bad. So, if we just throw out all the “male” stuff and everyone adopts the “female” stuff we’ll all be exactly the same and that sameness will be good because women are great and men are awful. Of course, there are no men or women but if there were, girls would rule and boys would drool. Hooray for Feminism......" - Read More
__________________________________________

Ya see y'all, feminists really want us to think that because men have oppressed women in the past, women must take on masculine qualities in order to amass power for themselves. This means that the ideal woman has to act like a man in order to be powerful — but of course, she’s not toxic because she’s a woman, even though she’s acting like a man and men are toxic.

Does all this sound familiar? It should. It's virtually the same Propaganda/Strategy that's being daily rubbed in your face by another group of Whiny Bitches. Instead of Toxic Masculinity,  they call it 'White Privilege'.

Looks Like Miss Joy Gets Her Bigot Card Punched Again

The Insufferable Negress of MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid

It's always rich when someone on the left gets exposed as a major league hypocrite. And in this case, it couldn't have happened to a better person: the self-righteous Nutty Negress of MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid. The lovely Ms. Reid is infamous for slamming anyone who dares to criticize her political views by calling them bigots and racist. The lefty media website 'Mediate' claims to have obtained another series of homophobic rants posted on MSNBC's most controversial affirmative-action pundit's old blog. Only this time she pulls out the victim card and denies they were actually written by her. It was those damn Russians again I suppose..... 
"In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog." 
While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic content on a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.” These anti-gay articles from The Reid Report — a site that pre-dated Reid’s former MSNBC show of the same name — were originally shared on Twitter by user Jamie_Maz who found them using the Wayback Machine, an Internet archiving service that takes periodic screenshots of popular web pages to preserve them. 
While the amateur sleuth provided Mediaite with legitimate links to all of the posts they tweeted screenshots of, neither the actual defunct site nor its archived pages are currently accessible, as their Wayback Machine links mysteriously disappeared in December after Mediaite‘s initial story on Reid’s homophobic comments about Florida Congressman Charlie Crist."
It is worth noting that Reid does admit these posts came from her blog rather than claiming they are doctored images posted to Twitter with the caveat that they were added by some nefarious hackers after she had the site shut down. It’s unclear when these nefarious hackers would have hacked her blog and added the controversial post since it has been defunct for years and still is.
"A 2006 Reid Report post included a compilation of the top five “totally not gay celebrities of the year,” which was a satirical attempt — albeit, a lazy one — at suggesting everyone on the list was secretly gay. Singer Clay Aiken and CNN pundit Anderson Cooper both made the list, which — if the publishing date is correct — was posted years before they had come-out publicly. In another post dated to 2005, the author said Cooper is the “gayest thing on TV” and noted that they have it “on good authority that Cooper is totally gay.” He didn’t come out publicly until 2012. 
The post also repeatedly advocated against gay marriage on the site by criticizing liberals deemed too far left on the issue. Cable news host Rachel Maddow, who is openly gay and now works with Reid at MSNBC, was a recurring target in these Reid Report posts."
I guess it's easy to adopt political correct views when the money is right. Eh Joy? But it's going to be hard for her to push these allegations aside with ease considering other controversial comments Reid has publicly made on gay issues, include the her 2017 twitter storm against the supposedly “volatile & vulnerable” whistle-blower Chelsea Manning, a tirade that was deemed transphobic. Pass the popcorn please.......

The Big Blue Wave's HQ Donations Are So Weak They're Borrowing Money. Again.


The democrat's hangover from the 2016 election loss is still evident to this day, not only in their hysteria over the DJT, but in the bank also.  The DNC's financial woes began in 2016 and led to taking out a loan from Hillary Clinton’s criminal organization campaign. Clinton’s influence over the party later became the subject of controversy after it came out that the DNC was working behind the scenes to help her screw over Bernie Sanders. 

Things have only gotten worse since the DNC was turned over to a radical leftist last year, who some call an Incompetent Hispanic Boob, and a co-chair Anti-Semitic Muslim.  Some big money donors are a bit leary and laying back to see what comes next. Coupled with Hillary's embarrassing 'blame everybody but me tour' and the dems inability to fund-raise off a crisis or human suffering like school shootings has the DNC borrowing more money just months ahead of the Mid-term elections.

According to the Daily Caller, records show the Democratic National Committee had to take out another loan in February as the 2018 midterm elections loom. The national arm of the Democratic Party took out a $1.7 million loan in February, raising their total debt above $6 million.  The DNC has consistently failed to keep up with Republican's fundraising. The RNC brought in $12.8 million in February while the DNC only raised $6.9 million. The DNC now has just over $10 million on hand compared to the $42 million the RNC has in the can.

You'd think as hated as the media says Donald Trump is in America, the money would be rolling in to the DNC in truck fulls. Granted, candidates raise their own money, but national committees like the DNC play a big supporting role they cannot do without. But the left's ongoing ceaseless attacks on DJT, the Truth, Free Speech and Constitutional Guaranteed Rights has surely given some donors reason to pause. And who needs more enemies with Hillary,Tom Perez, Keith Ellison and Nancy & Chuck on your side?

Running For President As A Progressive Means Introducing Another Crazy Idea


Friday, Senator Cory Booker, a rising star in the Democratic Party and a likely 2020 contender even though he faces considerable skepticism from within his own party for being somewhat of an asshole, all but formally announced his plans for a run at the white House by putting forth the latest of surely more to come crazy big government ideas from Proglodyte Democrats. Booker, who would surely have been unmercifully crucified for his recent angry and disrespectful questioning pointed at HLS Lady Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen if he had not been a democrat, announced his Federal Jobs Guarantee Development Act. 

This little pile of progressive unicorn droppings would guarantee a full-time federal government job paying at least $15 and providing health care and paid sick/family leave for any adult that needs one.  This would begin with a three year pilot program in 15 local areas, (i.e. the urban areas ruled by dems) and be expanded throughout the United States. Expanded nationally would ensure that every American who wants a job has a job.

There are many other benefits to this scam jobs idea. If the government were to guarantee $15 an hour jobs with benefits to everyone who wanted them, private sector employers would have to raise their wages and benefits in order to attract and keep employees, and prices go through the roof. 

The Act is based on ideas long advocated by economists Mark Paul, William Darity, Jr. and Darrick Hamilton of  left-wing think tank 'Center on Budget and Policy Prioritiesand pushed for by Jesse Jackson during his presidential run in 1984. As the geniuses at Vox point out, a similar program in India, the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, was found to not only increase household earnings for low-income households, both in the private and public sector. 

Yes, we really need to look for solutions to our ignorant and uneducated in a country where the average monthly wage is $392 USD,  just behind the economic paradise of Kyrgyzstan and Syria!

No, this is just a common temporary anti-poverty program used in developing third world countries, all wrapped in a pretty red bow of European socialism (and eerily similar to pre-WW2 German National Work Programs)  It's just a another hook to get uneducated minorities unionized and expand their government dependency, encourage more immigration and securing votes. Along with programs like this is more government regulation on business, higher taxes and less freedom. 

Would a program like this be expensive?  You Bet. The plan proposed by Paul, Darrity and Hamilton estimates its cost at $543 billion a year.  So like everything the government has ever gotten involved in and lied about the cost, you can probably triple that price and then add in a health dose of graft corruption and incompetence, you'd probably be closer to the real price tag

Booker and the dems, by continuing to embracing things like Medicare-for-all and programs like this one, are yet to learn one of the lessons of 2016, ......that progressive ideas are not as vastly appealing to centrists as have been in the past......

How many finger am I holding up Winston?

Democrats Go All In


Files Suit Against Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign, 
The Russian Government and the Wikileaks group. 
Claims Broad Conspiracy to Rig 2016 election.

Things haven't been breaking the Democrats way lately. The Comey memos are a dude, and it looks like after a year of threats, yelling, media propaganda and whining like children, the DNC can't get what it's wanted from Mueller. This law suit looks like a throw down. All in. Scorched earth. Total war. Last Ditch effort. PR stunt. Call it what you want. 

CNBC - "The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that "In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort" to mount "a brazen attack on American Democracy," which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network. 
The suit says that "preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs" with Trump and Trump associates "provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy." Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the party's suit "is not partisan, it's patriotic." He called the alleged conspiracy "an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency." 
The DNC said that while it would be impossible "to fully repair the harm caused by the defendants, the DNC has filed this civil complaint ... to hold the defendants accountable for their misconduct and to ensure transparency." The suit says that the Trump campaign solicited Russia's illegal assistance and maintained secret communications with people linked to the Russian government, including a spy agency tasked with attacking the DNC...." - Read More 
________________________________________________________

The Democrats have just put some fresh bait on the hook to keep DJT tweeting and the media talking about Russia. The dems see the suit is a trap, because on their hopeful outside chance Special Counsel Robert Mueller can twist evidence to appear Trump in someway conspired with the Russians, the DNC will be set up to recover millions of dollars in damages from hacking. Yeah, good luck with that.....

NASA Engineer: A Woman Should Be The First Person on Mars


"Allison McIntyre, who oversees NASA's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility in Houston, the home base for astronaut training, said it's only fair that a woman takes humanity's first steps on Mars. Twelve humans have set foot on a planetary body beyond Earth. All 12 were men, walking on the Moon during the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of the Apollo missions.  
NASA's first female astronaut to fly in the space shuttle, Sally Ride, notoriously had to explain that she wouldn't need 100 tampons for a week in space, in 1983. McIntyre says, "We have female astronauts, but we haven't put a woman on the Moon yet, and I think the first person on Mars should be a woman." 
________________________________________________________ 

I have to say, Oh Hell Yeah! I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. McIntyre. And it's About Damn Time! So in solidarity with my sisters in the struggle against the patriarchy, I have a few ideas myself who should be the first woman on Mars. In fact, I think we should send a whole crew of females. 

Here are a few of my nominees. You can leave your own suggestions for who you think should be the celebrated 'First Lady of Mars' in the comments below. Just don't be dissin' your hostess with lame women driver jokes........

Auntie Maxine
Cackling Hens of the View - Whoopi & Joy What's Her Name
Alleged Comedian Chelsea Handler

It's Either One Or The Other.


Is racism a uniquely heinous offense against humanity, such that it needs to be treated as beyond the pale and outside the acceptable bounds of civilized society? Or is it so common that basically everyone is guilty of it? Because it can’t be both. 

If racism is an attitude of extremist cranks on the fringes of society, then the vast majority of us who don’t embrace racism can isolate the cranks and deny them the ability to impact society in accordance with their misguided, evil racist notions. But if racism is more or less in everyone’s hearts, and in fact that includes a great many people who don’t really overtly hate minorities and don’t mean anyone any harm, then how can it be treated as a fringe, evil belief? It’s one or the other. 

What the left wants to do is treat it like the existential threat the former scenario suggests, but nevertheless presume just about everyone in the country to be in on it. That doesn’t work.

You do have to hand it to Starbucks on this score, however: Have you ever seen a bigger overreaction to an isolated incident? One employee loses who doesn’t know how to manage a fairly innocuous situation ends up calling in the police, and the next thing you know 8,000 stores are closing for the day. Granted, this situation is tailor-made for activists who want to turn this one employee’s poor judgment into a global “Starbucks is racist” narrative, but is anyone surprised that Starbucks is essentially conceding the point with the way it’s reacting?

Consideration Being Given to Officially Recognize Crying Babies In The Senate Chamber

The present Congressional Democrats have proven to be useless muttering whiners, obsessed with non- existent scandals instead of addressing serious needs facing the country. They also like to try and move the goal post or change the rules  just for themselves in the middle of the game.

In this latest example, it's pure privileged being showcased. Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth is the ultimate token for the Dems, she's Asian born, a women, and she is a military veteran who lost both of her legs in combat while serving in Iraq. Unfortunately, she is constantly trotted out by the Democrats as a show of how much that they care about the military and the troops.  They don’t. But Duckworth has assumed a key role as the dems attack dog every time the left wants to slam Donald Trump’s lack of service or on issues involving the military, and has been applauded for nicknaming the POTUS “cadet bone spurs”.

According to Politico, Duckworth, who just a few days ago became the first sitting senator to pop out a baby while in office (top that Chuck Schumer) has gone to great lengths calling for the Senate to change the rules and submitted a resolution tailored just for her so that she can bring her newborn onto the Senate floor during votes. It’s cynical as hell to say it, but I will, it's hard to see how the infant isn’t going to be more of a prop to elevate her national profile in the media because Democrats have proven to be very adept at exploiting children for political gain.  There is no way that the Senate won’t vote to allow babies on the floor. Just imagine the amount of fiery social media hell that will be brought down on anyone who dares to say no.

I just hope someone has the balls to ask the good Senator before they vote on the matter why the full senate should take up a resolution that is gender specific and narrowly applied, thus discriminating against the majority of the male Senate body. I also would hope someone would ask why she isn't just taking full advantage of the 'Family and Medical Leave Act' that dems beat everyone over the head to get into law, and stay home and bond with her child like mothers should?

But then again, someone would probably counter by saying the House of Representatives is already recognized as being chalk full of wailing crybabys called progressive democrats.




The Left's All-or-Nothing Mentality

Pretty Much My Attitude About Leftist Protest These Days

PJM - These days we've almost become immune to the stunts that members of the left in this country pull to get attention. Nothing liberals do seems far-fetched anymore. That's what made the suicide by immolation of attorney David Buckel so shocking. Buckel set himself on fire and ended his life not over the issue of gay rights, but as an environmental protest. His suicide note stated that he had burned himself with fossil fuel to serve as a metaphor for the destruction of the planet.  

Buckel is one more example of the all-or-nothing mentality of the left in America. To borrow the old phrase from the '60s, the personal is political for American leftists, and the political is personal for them too. Witness the tribalism in this country. Yes, we see it on the right too, but the smugness of liberals and their seeming willingness to shut down all debate raises the stakes of tribalism. Taking a look at the aftermath of the 2016 election as the best recent example, Pew Research revealed that almost half of liberals surveyed said that a friend's support for Donald Trump would "put a strain on friendship," compared to only 13 percent of Republicans who said the same about friends who voted for Hillary Clinton. 

This mentality is the same one that led New Yorker writer Dan Piepenbring to label Chick-fil-A as "creepy" in a recent piece. It's not possible to enjoy some of the best fast food around if you're a liberal. No, Chick-fil-A must be rejected because its founders are Christians who take conservative positions on social issues. All or nothing! The desire of so many on the left to achieve totality is so great that it turns many leftists against each other.

Take the gay rights movement that is often called upon to speak for the wider LGBTQA community. These figureheads are overwhelmingly white, cis-gendered, able-bodied men and women — and that can be a problem, given that they are representative of only one aspect of the LGBT community. After all, one can't speak for everyone if one holds one form of "privilege" over others. It's all or nothing to the left even when it comes to dealing with each other!

I believe that this all-or-nothing attitude on the left stems from the fact that the so many on their side are activists, while the majority of conservatives are out living their lives and only touching on politics from time to time. The idea that liberals tend to associate with only others like themselves feeds this taking of politics personally. David Buckel's case does represent the all-or-nothing mentality of the left to its extreme, but given how the personal and the political collide for so many on the left, it makes you wonder how many more cases like his will we see? - More at the Link

'Special Ed' Schultz Claims He Was Fired From NBC for Supporting That Nutty Socialist Guy

Former Prominent Inmate of the MSNBC Loony Bin

We all remember Ed Schultz, once known far and wide for his spitting, slobbering, blood vessel bursting left-wing tirades on MSNBC, now claims he was forced out at MSNBC in 2015 because of his support for his friend, Batshit Crazy Bernie Sanders. Schultz often interviewed Sanders before the Vermont senator's presidential campaign. Crazy Ed has since moved on to his present stint as a tool for the Kremlin propaganda network RT (Russia Today) long before the leftist American media turned on Vlad Putin for ruining their anticipated progressive dynasty and helped Donald Trump steal the throne of their exalted Queen Hillary. 
WFB - Ex-MSNBC host Ed Schultz in a recent interview ripped his former network as "in the tank for Hillary Clinton" and suggested he was fired in 2015 because of his support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.). Schultz  told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein in an an interview posted Friday that MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog," and he said he was often given direction on what stories to cover. 
Sanders gave his official campaign launch speech in Burlington, Vermont on May 26, 2015, and Schultz said he was the only cable news host planning to air it live. Griffin called him five minutes before air time at 5 p.m. EST, and said, "You're not covering this." It got rather contentious, Schultz said. He said he was forced to cover something "totally meaningless" in Texas, devastating flooding in Texas and Oklahoma and the unrest in Baltimore over the death of Freddy Gray. 
Schultz opined he was forced out because of MSNBC's water-carrying for Clinton.
"I think the Clintons were connected to [NBC News chief] Andy Lack, connected at the hip. I think that they didn't want anybody in their primetime or anywhere in their lineup supporting Bernie Sanders. They were in the tank for Hillary Clinton, and I think that it was managed. 45 days later I was out at MSNBC. I thought it stunk" 
Schultz, despite previously ripping Vladimir Putin for his "nasty" human rights record, joined the Kremlin propaganda network in January of 2016. He told Weinstein his anchoring gig at RT was the best job.
"...the most freedom I've ever had. I'm doing real journalism. It's not opinion. There was more oversight and more direction given to me on content at MSNBC than there ever has been here at RT. I think that it's very sad that story is not getting out." - More at the Link
_______________________________________________________________

I think it's a sad commentary on the media in this country that someone who escaped it, and now works for Russia's state-funded TV network of all things, at the least perceives he has more journalist freedom then he had in the American media. The same media once admired as the standard of the free world.

Wow, CBS. How’d This One Get Past the Editors?

Former Obama Political Operative Loretta L. and Her Onetime Homie Comey 

An unexpected take from the CBS website
"Lacking evidence of actual wrongdoing—in last night’s interview, Comey yet again refused to accuse President Trump of obstruction—Comey turned instead to the petty and political. He talked about Mr. Trump’s appearance (“His face appeared slightly orange with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles”), the size of his hands (“As he extended his hand, I made a mental note to check its size. It was smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so.”) and he called the president “morally unfit.” It was the sort of snarky partisan punditry found on cable news 24/7." 
"Then again, should we be surprised? If Comey ever did see actual wrongdoing by Mr. Trump, do we really believe we’d just be hearing about it from a notoriously leak-friendly fellow like Comey?"
"...…As Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com tweeted, it’s “not particularly honorable, if you have information you believe is of immediate and vital national importance, to wait 11 months to release it until you can have a giant book launch and publicity tour.” Silver—no Trump fan– calls the book "A Higher Royalty."

'I Might Have To Leave America’ She Says.


There's nothing wrong with adopting a child who happens to be of a different ethnic group from yourself. We're all God's children. There IS something wrong with purposefully adopting black children as a social and/or a career marketability statement, as they do in Hollywood.  And I'm really not sure how privileged children of a millionaire actress would need to fear America. But Hollywood is great at overreacting after all, since they're paid very well to do it. In an interview published in Elle magazine, South African born actress Charlize Theron warned that racism in America was so bad that she “might have to leave.” And no surprise to you I'm sure, among other things she blames the Trump administration. 

In the interview with the alleged comedian Chelsea Handler, the South African actress expressed her feelings on racism (since she’s from a country that had apartheid, she apparently is an expert). She give no specifics, but keeping with the Hollywood group-think, blames the "new administration" that's been around for lets see...... a year now. But wait, according to Ms.Theron, it’s not just the administration that’s to blame, it’s also America in and of itself: 
“Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. There are some places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, if this continues, I might have to leave America. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.”
After coming under fire for comments comparing the press to rapists, mainly because she drew A LOT of unwanted attention for shacking up with the greasy leftist Sean Penn, Theron decided earlier this year to raise the feminist banner, calling herself “a fucking feminist.” And now, apparently, she has also decided now to condemn the United States all of a sudden as unsafe for her children, since “racism is much more alive and well than people thought.” 

Yes perhaps, Ms. Theron, you should take your five dollar feminism and run away from evil America before the violent black culture takes hold of your children. That's what you should really be concerned about. Maybe you would be more comfortable back in your homeland of South Africa where they are conquering racism by murdering children of farmers and landowners along with their parents. Worry not Ms. Theron, unlike Chicago they are killing mostly white children.

FCC Chair Tells Democrat Senators To Go Pound Sand


It seems one of the best government appointments to come out of Trump’s election was Ajit Pai as Chairman of the FCC. He’s stood in the fire against all manner of leftist hysteria and verbal non-sense when it comes to net neutrality, censorship, and federal overreach at the FCC. He also stood up to the President when he made the ridiculous suggestion that certain broadcasters should have their licenses pulled. Pai isn’t partisan, he’s principled.

Thursday, he reaffirmed those principles again by formally rejecting an insane request from a dozen Democrat Senators (including Lizzy Warren, Bernie Sanders and Cory 'Scatman' Booker) asking the FCC to “investigate” Sinclair broadcasting for “purposely distorting the news.” Yes, the same Democrat party that shits bricks every time Trump says “fake news” now wants to use the power of the Federal government to investigate the editorial decisions of news agencies because their own media allies got called out. I’d go ahead and call them all hypocrites, but would I be telling you anything you didn’t already know? 

Here’s the money quote from the Dem's Clown Posse's request… 
“We are concerned that Sinclair is engaged in a systematic news distortion operation that seeks to undermine freedom of the press and the robust localism and diversity of viewpoint that is the foundation of our national broadcasting laws,” the senators wrote. They added that it “may have violated the FCC’s longstanding policy against broadcast licensees deliberately distorting news by staging, slanting, or falsifying information.”
This is nuts for many reasons, i'll give you two.  For One, all Sinclair did was tape promos saying they’ll be honest, diligent, and not report fake or unsubstantiated stories. I’m no English major, but where in any of that did Sinclair “stage, slant, or falsify” information? Or are we saying because local news promos are staged, they are actually illegal?

And secondly, suggesting they should have their broadcast license pulled is exactly the kind of idiocy that Trump was
excoriated for by these very same Senators! The FCC does not have the power to, nor should they go around pulling broadcast licenses based on their determination of what is “slanted” or any other such qualifier on a free press.

Luckily for freedom loving Americans at least, FCC Chair Ajit Pai responded in kind Thursday, and he didn’t hold back…
"Dear Senator Cantwell: Thank you for your letter requesting that the Commission investigate a broadcaster based on the content of its news coverage and promotion of that coverage. In light of my commitment to protecting the First Amendment and freedom of the press, I must respectfully decline. 
A free media is vital to our democracy. That is why during my time at the Commission I have consistently opposed any effort to infringe upon the freedom of the press and have fought to eliminate regulations that impede the gathering and dissemination of news.
I understand that you disliked or disagreed with the content of particular broadcasts, but I can hardly think of an action more chilling of free speech than the federal government investigating a broadcast station because of disagreement with its news coverage or promotion of that coverage. Instead, I agree with Senator Markey that “any insinuation that elected officials could use the levers of government to control or sensor the news media would represent a startling degradation of the freedom of the press.” I also take this opportunity to reaffirm the commitment I made to several members of the Senate Commerce Committee last year that the Commission under my leadership would “not act in a manner that violates the First Amendment and stifles or penalizes free speech by electronic media, directly or indirectly."
While he does keep it civil, he points out just how ludicrous and “chilling” this request by Democrats was. The idea that any aspect of the Federal government should delve into judging editorial choices of the free press is antithetical to everything this country stands for. To have elected representatives demanding the FCC go after local broadcasters for filming a promo spot (that doesn’t even say anything false) is outright dangerous.  By that standard, there is no standard. The government could shut anyone down for basically any ginned up reason. Even worse, to do so would be blatantly unconstitutional. 

The 1st Amendment isn’t ambiguous, but then again, to democrats the constitution is only viable if it meets their usefulness. After this episode of foolishness, none of these Senators nor the larger contingent of Democrats who went after Sinclair, have any credibly to speak on freedom of the press. What they have made clear is they don’t actually believe what they’ve sold in the past. It was never about freedom of the press for these people. It was just about freedom for outlets they see as helpful to their cause.

It's Kinda Fun Watching Alan Dershowitz Drive the Media Nuts


BizPac - Reports of Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz having dinner with President Trump sent liberals into spasms. The constitutional and criminal law scholar was meeting with Trump, in part, to “talk about the Middle East,” CNN’s Gloria Borger noted during a panel on “The Situation Room” Tuesday.

The news and subsequent speculation was too much for CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin who was once a student of Dershowitz.
“To the surprise of many including me, Alan has become a deeply outspoken defender of the president on these legal issues. The president has cited him in tweets. He is now welcome in the white House. In Alan’s defense, he will say that he is a defender of civil liberties and not necessarily a defender of the president."
The panel continued to discuss Dershowitz who slammed the FBI raid on the office of longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, calling it “a very dangerous day today for lawyer-client relations.” He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity his dinner with the president Tuesday was a “pre-arranged, pre-scheduled” meeting. Toobin could not reconcile that Dershowitz, who still considers himself a Democrat, would actually have dinner and talk with Trump. “I love Alan Dershowitz, he’s a great mentor of mine. But he’s picked sides here. He has picked sides,” Toobin ranted. “He’s with the president. And you don’t have to eat dinner with someone to support. He’s there eating dinner.”

Toobin recently accused Dershowitz of “carrying water” for Trump as the two sparred in a CNN interview. “How has this come about that in every situation over the past year you have been carrying water for Donald Trump?” Toobin asked his former professor. “This is not who you used to be. And you are doing this over and over again in situations that are just obviously ripe with conflict of interest. And it’s just, like, what’s happened with you?”

Dershowitz responded by once again schooling the student by basically saying in so many words he, unlike many in the media, doesn't hold up a hypocritical double-standard view of the constitution and the law. - Video at the Link.

Tim Kaine: Uh Yeah, so maybe Obama and Kerry didn’t get all those Syrian chemical weapons after all


In case you’ve forgotten, and heaven knows I certainly have tried to, Tim Kaine is the Senator from  Virginia who had the political misfortune of attaching his rising star to Madam Clinton’s epic presidential catastrophe. He was selected as Clinton’s 2016 running mate because like millions upon millions of other Americans, he speaks Spanish. This little bit of transparent pandering was supposed to deliver the Hispanic vote, allowing Hillary to win without evil white males, who she felt were deplorable bitter clingers and totally unnecessary to her victory. If that strategy seems crazy to you, congratulations, you have better judgement that Tim Kaine, who speaks Spanish.

Anyway, MSNBC pulled Timmy out of the political dark shadows of the U.S. Senate this morning and asked him: Hey, didn’t Obama and Kerry say they’d eliminated all of Syria’s chemical weapons? Tim Kaine, who boldly chose to answer in English despite being a fluent Spanish-speaker, responded honestly. Yeah…..about that…. 



Whoops! Apparently, from 2013-2017, when Obama’s surrogates were telling every news show on the planet that they’d eliminated Assad’s stockpile and the lapdogs of the media were praising the “amazing” and “potentially groundbreaking” 2013 deal in which John Kerry(he fought in Vietnam you know)and Barky Obama entrusted Russian forces with the disposal of Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal, they weren’t quite telling the truth.

Someone should alert Politifact to this shocking turn of events, since they rated Kerry’s claims “mostly true.” I guess we now know that we can chalk-up the following video is yet another collection of the previous administration’s major league flim-flammery, hokum and other folksy homespun words for “blatant lies.”

Silicon Valley Overlords Would Prefer to Silence You


 Moneyed Proglodytes and Silencing of the Right

Great read says the San Francisco based CEO of Twitter of an article titled 'The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War' that pretty much advocates eradication of the right. You know, the same dude deciding who American gets to hear from and who America doesn’t, and believes there’s no bipartisan way forward at this juncture in our history  

If you have high blood pressure, don’t bother reading it. Let me sum it up for you: Republicans are very evil. Too evil to tolerate. They need to be shut out of government, and all political issues. Their opinions and ideas, and those of the people who vote for them, must be banished from all thought and action. Conservatism must be eradicated in all forms so we can have a green energy utopia where no one has gender or pronouns or guns and there’s a chicken in every pot, alive and well and taking a bath because everyone is a super woke vegan who hates the whites.

Exaggeration? Here's a taste:
"Now the entire Republican Party, and the entire conservative movement that has controlled it for the past four decades, is fully positioned for the final takedown that will cast them out for a long period of time in the political wilderness. They deserve it. Let’s just say what needs to be said: The Republican Party over the past 40 years has maneuvered itself into a position where they are the bad guys on the wrong side of history. For a long time, they have been able to hide this fact through a sophisticated series of veils, invoking cultural voodoo that fools a large enough number of Americans to stay in the game.' 
The Republican Party is the party of climate change denial. Trump is the denier-in-chief, but there are 180 climate science deniers in the current Congress (142 in the House and 38 in the Senate), and none of them are Democrats. The Republican Party for the past 40 years has mastered using dog whistles to gin up racial divides to get their white voters to the polls. Trump just disposes of niceties and flatly encourages white nationalists, bans Muslims, walls off Mexicans, and calls out “shithole” countries."
This argument for one party rule, with overt references to an actual civil war while claiming to be only about a theoretical or non-physical one, is awful popular right now among leftists. You know, the ones who put Democracy on all the signs they use to protest in favor of government’s fist turning a little more iron. Democrats, who even when out of the political majority can still decide how bathrooms work in your state and whether or not you’re allowed to use a particular word.

Social media matters, y’all. You can be old and out of it and pretend it doesn’t and turn your nose up at it, but it was instrumental in electing Trump. And the Democrats know it too, that’s why they are always ranting about Russian “bots”. And Twitter is the most immediate way to communicate in social media. For a lot of bloggers and journalists and right wing activists, it’s a direct line of communication. Considering conservatives are shut out of the mainstream press about 99 percent of the time, it’s one of the ONLY lines of communication to the public. And the wealthy leftist who runs The Tweeter thinks we need a one party system, crushing decent and cutting Republican values out of society by force if necessary, is a pretty neato idea.

Squinty & Meat Puppet Attempt To Troll The President

Morning Joe‘s Mika and guitar Joe decided to start the week off trying to be cute and were all ready to play a bright and early round of bingo based on Donald Trump‘s tweets. But their stunt fell flat by picking a slow Trump Twitter morning to troll the President. Their "Trump Twitter Bingo" board featuring words, phrases and nicknames that the president often uses in tweets, such as Crooked Hillary, Fake News and Democrats, Collusion, Mueller Probe, Failing New York Times, and the Morning Joe logo itself of course. I wonder if it took them all weekend to come up with this? *snork*

Joe Biden Boasts of Keeping 'Brilliant Judge' Off Supreme Court


NewsBusters:

"More than 30 years after a relentless campaign of character assassination kept Robert Bork from a seat on the Supreme Court, one of the architects of that attack is belatedly crediting its target for his brilliance. Appearing on the podcast 'Pod Save America' Joe Biden revisited his role in derailing Bork's nomination to the court in 1987 while Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"I'm the guy that kept there from being a guy who was maybe the most brilliant conservative who was nominated for the Supreme Court (Favreau snickers) and I kept him off the court. And I was able to ... in the Judiciary Committee (to) defeat (Clarence) Thomas (nominated by the elder Bush four years later). Bork got flat defeated. Thomas got defeated in committee. But the Constitution says the Senate shall advise and consent, not a committee shall advise and consent. And one of the reasons why I think the president didn't picked the man we picked who was a really good guy, remember, some liberals were angry we didn't pick somebody way left, because the Constitution as written says the Senate has as much right to determine who is on the court as the president does. It says the president can propose, the Senate disposes."
As is his wont, Biden lets the cat out of the bag. The biggest problem for liberals when it came to Bork was not his originalist views of the Constitution, or that he pulled the trigger for Nixon in the so-called Saturday Night Massacre, but the fact that he was brilliant and could be expected to push the court to the right for generations to come -- hence he had to be destroyed.

How seemingly gracious of Biden to acknowledge Bork as legal exemplar, albeit long after it mattered and seeing how it is now beyond dispute." - Read More
___________________________________________________________________

It's worth noting that Judge Robert Bork's months-long nomination battle in 1987 roughly aligned with Biden's first doomed run for the presidency which ended amid growing evidence of his lack of integrity for plagiarizing remarks from other politicians. Also leading the charge against Bork that year was the womanizing drunken douche bag, Senator Ted Kennedy.
