  • e President,' Said the Woman Who Thought It Was Her Due

    Norm Macdonald, in addition to being the best Weekend Update anchor ever, is also a keen student of human nature. Last year he summed up the results of the 2016 presidential election with this koan-like observation: "People hated Hillary Clinton so much that they voted for someone they hated more than Hillary Clinton in order to rub it in." I really think that sums up our current moment. A lot of people, myself included, underestimated just how tired of Hillary everyone was. After a quarter-century of listening to that awful old criminal's angry, scolding voice, America finally said enough was...
  • Boomerang: Feminist Writer's Attempt To Mock Chick-fil-A's Branding Does Not Go According To Plan

    We’re back to this crap again. Progressives freaking out that a Chick-fil-A opened in New York City because Christians are creepy. First of all, it’s a delicious fast food chain. Two, because progressives hate it—you know it’s great. Feminist writer Jill Filipovic fired off red flares, warning fellow New Yorkers not to give the fast food chain their business. Of course, she got a backlash, in which she decided to mock her trolls saying they couldn’t spell “Chick-fil-A.” Don't give your money to bigots who stand against everything that makes your town the best in the world (diversity, ambitious women,...
  • Facebook Will FORCE All Users To Accept Being TRACKED Around The Internet

    Facebook has finally responded to requests to stop tracking users for advertising. But they aren’t going to. Instead, Facebook is going to force all of those who continue to use their social media service to accept being tracked around the internet. “People can choose to not be on Facebook if they want,” said Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman. Or, they will be forced to opt into being tracked everywhere they go, and that’s just the way it is. This decision was not made in the interest of the users of Facebook, but explicitly to keep the company’s business model “intact,”...

    Faced with the threat of subpoena, the Justice Department is expected to send Comey’s unredacted memos to Congress later Thursday. The deadline passed several days ago prompting Rep DeSantis to call for contempt charges against Rosenstein. The Daily Beast confirmed the Justice Department is finally complying with the oversight committee’s request and will be sending Comey’s memos to Congress today or tomorrow. Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump. The fired FBI Director admitted to leaking contents of the memos to the New York Times through a friend in order to prompt a special counsel investigation...
  • “Passing of Decency” — Morning Joe Uses Passing of Barbara Bush to Snipe at Trump

    The liberal media will seize any occasion—even the passing of a beloved former First Lady—as fodder for snipes at President Trump. And so it was on today’s Morning Joe, whereMike Barnicle suggested that the passing of Mrs. Bush is “accompanied by the passing of decency.” Jon Meacham echoed that theme. Describing the fine values by which Barbara Bush lived her life, Meacham said: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    This Reuters article is framed around Mexico making a surprise announcement they will support the U.S. steel tariff against China by shutting down the NAFTA back door on that specific trade segment…. However, the bigger story is Mexico’s admission/concession to the U.S. trade position that Canada and Mexico structure access to the U.S. market inside their trade deals with other nations. With a Marxist about to win the July 1st election; and with certain nationalization of private industry soon to follow; and with free capital markets anticipating and responding by shifting investment into the U.S.; Mexico proposes to close the...

    The Starbucks employee who made the 911 call that led to the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia location, sparking furious charges of racism and calls to protest and boycott, is no longer with the company. The company’s president and CEO didn’t discuss what actions employees involved might face during a Monday morning appearance on “Good Morning America.” “It’s easy for me to point blame to one person in this incident. My responsibility is to look more broadly, just to ensure this never happens again,” Kevin Johnson said. “I’ve been very focused on understanding what guidelines and what...

    If the "Trump is doomed" narrative sounds familiar, it is because we have been hearing some version of this on an almost daily basis from the mainstream media since even before President Donald Trump entered the White House.  It is one thing to hear criticism of this type of anticipatory journalism from conservatives but in this case it is the New Republic's Jeet Heer, hardly a Trump supporter, who wrote the critique about the MSM  living in a fantasy world in which Trump is constantly on the verge of leaving office. We Are (Probably) Not in the “End Stages” of...

    American Spectator ^ | April 15, 2018 | George Parry
    According to the just released report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrongfully caused sensitive law enforcement information to be leaked to the Wall Street Journal and then lied to investigators about having done so. The report runs thirty-five single spaced pages and lays out in excruciating, meticulous, and damning detail how McCabe authorized an anonymous leak calculated to make it appear that he had resisted pressure by Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department to close down the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation during the 2016 election campaign and then proceeded to cover...

    The Federal Judge, Kimba Wood, who is making decisions in the case against President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen, is the same person who officiated George Soros wedding. Go figure. Today Judge Kimba Wood demanded, in open court, that attorney Michael Cohen state -on the record- the names of his clients….. Then, moments later, in a decision about the seized records taken by the FBI during their raid last week, Judge Wood demanded all of the Cohen records be transferred into a federal database so they could be searched, reviewed, categorized and then leaked more efficiently to the media.

    When I wrote about the upsurge in illegal immigration to Canada last month, I noted that the government was forced to spend nearly $200 million on increased border patrols. That came as thousands of new migrants came across the border each month to claim asylum. Today the Globe and Mail reports that the Candian province of Quebec is asking the federal government to chip in to help deal with the wave of migrants which is on track to nearly double the number that came across the border last year: The number so far this year has tripled to 6,074...

    I know he’s a Democrat, I know Hannity once pulled a gun on him, but I’m still surprised to see a Fox contributor broaching the big ethical criticism of their 9 p.m. guy on their own airwaves before he’s even had a chance to address the situation on his show. Fox host Juan Williams questions Hannity's refusal to disclose his relationship with Michael Cohen: pic.twitter.com/XOrRWFVeWj— Andrew Lawrence (@ndrew_lawrence) April 16, 2018 I wonder if Williams freelanced it or if he got the green light from management, which must be highly annoyed by Hannity’s cameo in the news today —...

    David Hogg is calling for another student walkout, because he has nothing better to do and is probably super irritated that America couldn’t care less what he has to say about the Second Amendment. It’s not going anywhere. A bunch of emotionally-driven kids– JK, ADULTS…Hogg is an ADULT now– aren’t changing that. But here we are. Hogg hasn’t gotten enough attention lately, and AR-15s are still legal, so another walkout it is! He REFUSES to allow his 15 minutes of fame to die out! It’s been just over 2 months. We have walked out of school and now, on 4/20,...

    A very interesting development is unfolding as a result of internet researcher TracyBeanz [Twitter HERE – YouTube HERE] and some insightful dot connecting by those following. The outline begins via a relatively under-reported accusation about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch by former FBI Director James Comey in his upcoming book. According to ABC News Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” that he became the public face of the investigation partly because of a mysterious development which he felt could cast “serious doubt” on Lynch’s independence. “Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been...

    The day that James Comey cashed the multi-million dollar advance check from MacMillan Publishers will turn out to mark the date that we can call “Peak Comey.” It was all downhill from the instant the ink started drying on his signature on the back of the check. He and his ghost writer suddenly faced the unenviable task of making him look like the righteous warrior he had always portended to be, but with the need to fill 300 pages with something. Self-serving rationalizations can’t sustain reader interest over that many words, so apparently they decided that prose about physical appearances...

    Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly takes aim at President Obama and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for complicating the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server in his upcoming book, “A Higher Loyalty.” While Comey strongly defended his FBI team against any “personal political motivations,” the passages show a different point of view regarding Obama and Lynch, whom he believes both “jeopardized” the credibility of his investigation with their statements prior to its conclusion. “Contributing to this problem, regrettably, was President Obama,” writes Comey, according to a pre-release copy obtained by the Washington Examiner. Describing Obama as a “very...

Sources within the U.S. intelligence community have confirmed to this reporter that several members of Congress were briefed on key evidence from the Las Vegas Shooting in March, and continue to be briefed on evidence which further bolster’s ISIS’s claim that they were responsible for the attack.

    Blasts were reported in Damascus, Syria, just minutes after President Trump announced that he would be launching an attack in retaliation for last week's chemical attack by Bashar al-Assad on his own citizens. Unverified videos appear to show the attack as it happened, with Tomahawk missiles lighting up the sky over the Syrian capital. President Trump said in a speech from the White House that he "ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the...

    The OIG report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is devastating to the “small group” and not just for what it outlines, but also for what it doesn’t provide. There are bound to be multiple reports and discussions which will flow from an outcome of the content therein. However, here’s some of the ‘big picture’ takeaways for those who have followed the very granular details.

    The New Yorker approaches topics like a shallow teenager: Slap a disparaging word onto a popular topic and bingo! You have journalism. Among the long, hallowed list of people, places and things the magazine has found “creepy,” the publication’s latest target is – surprise! – the Christianity of the Chik-fil-A franchise. Blogger Dan Piepenbring found the franchise’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism” with its statue of “Jesus washing a disciple’s feet” and its policy to close on Sundays just too much. Then again, The New Yorker has called many things “creepy.” From Miley Cyrus’ return to sobriety to IKEA’s aesthetic to children’s...
