    The massacre in Manchester this week seems to have prompted attention to the arrest of brothers Abdullah and Majid Alrifahe in north Minneapolis on May 11. Inside the parked car they were sitting in was a stash of guns, ammo, drone parts and an inert hand grenade. The arrest report provides an inventory of the stash officers found in “a cursory search” of the vehicle: “a loaded AK 47-type assault rifle, another rifle, several assault rifle magazines and large quantities of different ammunition (including shotgun shells), discharged shell casings and BB ammunition. Also found were several cell phones, computers and...

    Trump Secretly Disappears For A Few Hours Overseas – Here’s The Unbelievable Reason WhyThere has certainly been no shortage of media coverage as President Trump makes his first trip oversea as POTUS and while he is doing fantastic, the liberal media is slamming him and Melania. From no head scarfs, the way the First Lady is dressed, the holding hands ‘scandal’, and the strong message that the President is sending to the world, the liberal media is determined to bash the president to the best of their ability.While the MSM does their best to cash in on anything they can...

    The FOX News host is refusing to stop his investigation into the grisly murder of Seth Rich. Sean Hannity, FOX News host went out on a limb Tuesday in defense of his coverage, calling his critics "phony hypocrites." Hannity wants to know who killed Seth Rich, even if the mainstream media and his own colleagues want him to stop. The murder of Seth Rich, a young Democratic National Committee staffer, has inspired a lot of speculation in the right-wing media and on FOX, the gist of which is that he was murdered by Democratic operatives as revenge for being a...

    Was ISIS trying to make a sick, cryptic political statement about Grande's widely known views? ___ The fact that ISIS would want to attack a civilian target, filled with young, mostly female fans, one of the softest targets in the world as an obvious expression of the kind of blood-soaked propaganda warfare ISIS seek to wage. The young singer Ariana Grande, whose fans were targeted and slaughtered by ISIS is no stranger to political controversy. She famously shouted, “I hate Americans I hate America. ” in a public place before committed a grotesque act of vandalism. Her widely publicised views...

    Scott Adams Blog ^ | 05/23/2017 | Scott Adams
    President Trump just gave ISIS its new name: Losers. (Short for Evil Losers). If you think that’s no big deal, you’re wrong. It’s a big deal. This is – literally – weapons-grade persuasion from the most powerful Master Persuader of our time. As I have taught you in this blog, President Trump’s clever nicknames for people are not random. They are deeply engineered for visual impact and future confirmation bias. In this case, the visuals will be provided by future terror attacks. That reinforces the “evil” part, obviously. But more importantly, the Losers will be doing nothing but losing on...

    Appearing from Riyadh on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this morning, Secretary Tillerson fielded a slightly offbeat question and responded with what (outside President Trump’s speech) may have been the quote of the day (transcript here). Wallace observed that Tillerson asked Tillerson about the traditional Arab sword dance in which he participated upon his arrival yesterday. “And I have to tell you,” Wallace commented, “you looked pretty good while you were doing it – frankly, more comfortable than the President or Commerce Secretary Ross. Had you been practicing, sir?” Tillerson responded: “Well, I hadn’t been practicing, Chris, but it...

The four entities are as follows: Media Matters for America, American Bridge, CREW, and Shareblue. Each has their own strategic plan. This is the first of three articles that will be outlining the planned media assault that is...

The following is an excerpt from page 10 of the #BrockGate document: "Media Matters has already secured access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

    Trump supporters do not read the NY times. Write this onto the blackboard 100 times, The Simpsons opening style, and youÂ’ll understand what youÂ’re about to learn. If your supporters arenÂ’t reading stories about you, why is your media team spending all of its time responding to those stories? Trump and Clinton / Anthony Weiner supporters live in parallel media universes. If you do not understand this, you will lose the media game. I do not read WaPo or the NY Times or any other liberal propaganda outlet. I donÂ’t visit their home pages and do not subscribe. Unless a...

    How do you know that Jason Johnson was peddling hyperbole? Because after making his melodramatic statement, he insisted, “that’s not hyperbole.” On CNN this morning, Johnson—of Univision-owned The Root—speaking of the Comey firing, declared “this is how democracy dies.” He said of the current situation that it is “no longer a functioning democracy,” adding the obligatory “this is a constitutional and sovereignty crisis.” On the same panel, CNN’s Ron Brownstein portrayed President Trump as “a president who simply is systematically committed to delegitimizing and undermining any institution that he believes can check or challenge him.” Brownstein claimed that “the only...

    Election 2016: It took a lot of numbers-crunching, but Democratic Party pooh-bahs say they now know why Hillary Clinton lost: Many of the "base" voters she counted on in Blue States didn't show up, and switched to Donald Trump instead. It took them nearly six months to figure out the blindingly obvious, but it still doesn't get at the truth. The findings of a poll and focus groups conducted by Priorities USA for the Democratic Party advisory firm Global Strategy Group were devastating not just for Hillary Clinton, but for Democrats as a whole: It found that many former supporters...

    When Lieutenant Gary Megge of the Michigan State Police attends a meeting, he sometimes asks, “How many of you broke the speed limit on your way here?” Hearing his question, you might assume that Lt. Megge is a particularly zealous police officer. The type of person who walks half a city block to avoid jaywalking on an empty street. The model citizen who defers almost obnoxiously to the letter of the law. But that is not the point of Lt. Megge’s question at all. “We all speed, yet months and months usually pass between us seeing a crash,” Lt. Megge...

    The title of this article is a bit on the misleading side, for which I apologize in advance. We’ve covered all manner of stories about the transgender debates sweeping the nation and at first glance that’s what this one looked like. There’s a bill under consideration in California which will allow official documents such as drivers licenses to offer three choices in the gender column. But this one has nothing to do with “choice” or political movements. It deals with a very real condition affecting a significant number of people and should be encouraged. (CBS Local) California would be...

Prominent D.C. lobbyist Jack Burkman said today that he started assembling a delegation of lobbyists and lobbying firms to meet with the New York billionaire and begin building a bridge to the Trump organization. “Trump is a Washington outsider.

    Maybe The Snowflakes Are Right? What if "Pajama Boy" is right? GDP came in pretty punky this morning, and a big part of it was consumption -- consumer spending. Much has been said, including by myself, about millennials and other young people on both sides of the millennial generation being less ambitious, living at home even well into their 20s, working part time or not at all. What if their decision is a purely logical one? What if those folks have decided that they're not into "rocket science" (e.g. high-grade math, computer programming, etc) and are not going to go...

    Protesters started to gather around Trump hotel this evening, blaring loud dance music and holding LGBT flags. Jack Posobiec was live on the scene asking the protesters what exactly they were protesting. Many said ‘gay rights and climate change’. Posobiec spoke to one protester who said gays are being excluded under the Trump administration and that Mike Pence ‘signed something’ and is putting gay people in jail. Posobiec: “What rights do gay people not have?” Protester: “So under Mike Pence you could go to jail for 18 months…” Posobiec: “Mike Pence has sent gay people to jail?” Protester: “Yes.” Posobiec:...
