  • Liberal activists look to ballot box rather than impeachment

    Liberal activists resisting the presidency of Donald Trump say they’d rather defeat him and other Republicans at the ballot box than see Trump brought down in other ways. Those gathering for the annual Netroots Nation confab this weekend in Georgia say obsessing over subpoenas and clamoring for impeachment distracts from larger policy debates. They believe it also takes away from congressional midterm elections whose outcomes will last beyond Trump. …

    It seems there is no such thing as too much of Vladimir Putin's bare chest. For the second time in three days, the Kremlin has released video of the Russian president's recent macho holiday adventures in Siberia — with even more hunting, boating and underwater spearfishing — and plenty of new scenes of a shirtless Putin enjoying the outdoors. The first round of photos and videos was released Saturday morning in Moscow and played unrelentingly on Russia's main state television channels all weekend. They also featured prominently online and in the country's major newspapers. Putin, 64, is well-known for his...

    When Emily Maitlis of BBC Newsnight landed her first (and possibly as it transpired, her last) interview with the then-incoming Head of Communications for the White House, Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci, she could have had little idea beyond her briefing notes what to expect. What viewers actually saw and heard wasn’t just a bad omen of things to come, but an exercise in that peculiar blend of undisguised contempt and ferocious masculine-driven competition that has become a decisive marker of the violent underpinnings of Donald Trump and his administration. Women beware. Scaramucci rose to the occasion of having a well-trained...

    When DCs’ Legends of Tomorrow returns for a third season on The CW later this year, a new superhero will enter the fold in the form of a Muslim computer hacker from the future: Zari Adrianna Tomaz, who will be played by Tala Ashe.... Legends executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke about the casting and referenced the 2016 Presidential election, Donald Trump’s presidency and the policies that ultimately established restrictions on travel to the United States from six predominantly Muslim countries. “You might have heard there was this election,” Guggenheim explained. “Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated...
  • President Trump Says Son 'Openly' Shared His Emails While Hillary Clinton 'Acid Washed' Hers

    (WASHINGTON) — Hours before he was to help commission a new aircraft carrier at a patriotic ceremony on the Virginia coast, President Donald Trump fired off a volley of early morning tweets that again showed how furious he remains over multiple investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The tweets were unusual in their breadth and scope, even for Trump, given the wide variety of topics he touched on as Saturday dawned. His 10 tweets, all sent within two hours starting before 6:30 a.m., ranged from the Russia investigation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Hillary Clinton, the...
  • ELECTION ANALYSIS: Wikileaks Honest Reports on Crooked Hillary More Viral than Lapdog Media Agitprop

    The liberal media’s best efforts to influence the election in favor of Hillary Clinton could not match the honest analysis of Wikileaks. A new report on the 2016 election by Qatar Computing Research Institute found that Wikileaks had more of an impact in the 2016 election on social media than the liberal media agitprop defending Crooked Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton had about twice as many attacking tweets than supportive tweets. President Trump had more than twice as many supportive tweets than attacking tweets.

    There’s no denying the first half of 2017 would have been very different had Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. In her current St. Louis gallery exhibition, artist Bunny Burson remembers the future that very nearly was, creating an artwork using the iridescent confetti that was primed to go off on election night this past November 8, had the country elected its first woman president. A longtime Clinton devotee, Burson was the executive director of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities under President Bill Clinton’s administration. In the aftermath of the 2016 election,...

    Mark Zuckerberg recently stated his desire to have Facebook act as a community for it’s users, replacing “churches” and “community support groups.” Speaking at Facebook’s first Communities Summit in Chicago last week, Mark Zuckerberg discussed a number of topics, including Facebook’s new mission statement which was changed from “connecting the world” to a new goal, to “give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” ... CNBC reports that later at the rally, the Facebook CEO discussed the use of Facebook as a community tool to bring it’s users closer together, “It’s so striking that for...

    The Associated Press will no longer employ Melanie Plenda, a leftist activist exposed by Breitbart News, after she was caught violating the news wire service’s editorial standards. Plenda announced that the AP has terminated her effective immediately in an interview with the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple. Her termination comes as a Nov. 10, 2016, Facebook post she wrote—in which she pledged resistance to then-incoming President Donald J. Trump—was found to be in direct violation of the AP’s editorial standards. Plenda, in her interview with Wemple, confirmed she wrote the leftist activist post on her Facebook page—a post she has since...

    President Donald Trump is about to resign as a result of the Russia scandal. Bernie Sanders and Sean Hannity are Russian agents. The Russians have paid off House Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz to the tune of $10 million, using Trump as a go-between. Paul Ryan is a traitor for refusing to investigate Trump’s Russia ties. Libertarian heroine Ayn Rand was a secret Russian agent charged with discrediting the American conservative movement. These are all claims you can find made on a new and growing sector of the internet that functions as a fake news bubble for liberals, something I’ve dubbed...

    Pepe the Frog is dead, killed off by his own creator after he watched Pepe turn from a wholesome meme into a symbol co-opted by neo-Nazis for the alt-right. Pepe was created by cartoonist Matt Furie back in 2006 for his comic Boy's Club, but after everything that has happened to Pepe in the last year (including its official recognition as a symbol of hate by the Anti-Defamation League), Furie put Pepe in a coffin in a page-long strip published today, Comic Book Resources reported. In an essay published by Time in October, Furie wrote about how Pepe was never...

    A new documentary suggests Michael Brown did not rob a convenience store in Ferguson, Mo. before he was fatally shot in 2014 by police. A new documentary that debuted Saturday at a film festival in Austin, Texas — citing previously unseen footage — instead reports that there was a possible drug transaction Brown had with employees at the store during an earlier visit, The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported.

    Movie-maker Jason Pollock was not happy to be questioned on Fox News Channel. The director of “Strange Fruit,” which claims Michael Brown — the 18-year-old man who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 — did not rob a convenience store prior to the fight with police which led to his death. “You know how the system works. These cops get off every single time,” Pollock declared. Pollock started the segment by rolling his eyes as Fox host Martha MacCallum introduced a news package about the “new footage.” The situation devolved from there. “I am simply...

    Just as the liberal "news" media have doubled down on fierce liberal activism since President Trump's inauguration, Hollywood is pushing the leftist agenda. Variety celebrates the crusade -- that is what this is -- in an article headlined "TV Gets Woke: How Scripted Series Are Confronting Social Issues Like Never Before." It is not that Hollywood should be political; it is that the industry must be political. Even the sitcoms need to be political. "Social media is in a constant conversation about things," proclaimed NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. "It doesn't feel authentic to not address what's going on in...

    In the current political climate, today’s International Women’s Day comes with an extra edge as the movement that started with marches all over the country and the world the day after Donald Trump became President has declared A Day Without A Woman. The strike aims to display the pivotal role women play in our society and our economy and how often they are taken for granted. Here in Hollywood, NBC and Netflix have told staffers that they are free to take the day to celebrate and support the cause. Among others commemorating the day today, MTV will turn their logo...

    It built its reputation on princesses finding their prince, living happily ever after in storylines which set the benchmark for romance for generations of children. Now, Disney is to move firmly into a new era as it introduces its first “exclusively gay moment”, disclosing the new version of Beauty and the Beast will star a manservant exploring his sexuality. Director Bill Condon said: “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. “And Josh [Gad, who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. “And that’s what...

As detailed below, there was a well-organized national and local campaign to get activists to Reed’s town halls for the specific purpose of creating a protest environment. Instructions how to protest and what questions to ask were circulated. Though the town halls were in the western part of the district, liberal groups in Ithaca and Tompkins county organized protests and got their members there. Other liberal groups like Planned Parenthood also got their people out.</p>

Marlow professed his admiration for Nomani’s recent column, “The Alt-Left’s Cyber Jihad Against Trump and His Supporters,” which covered what Marlow described as “the most significant news event of the year so far, aside from the Trump inauguration”: the anti-free-speech riots at U.C. Berkeley. “Being a journalist, I believe in the power of words, and I also study propaganda. I feel like we’re...
