  • Media Matters Founder David Brock Vows to Create a ‘Breitbart of the Left’

    Clinton ally and liberal Super PAC operator David Brock told reporters Tuesday that he plans to create a new outlet designed to serve as a counterpoint to alt-right website Breitbart. Brock purchased liberal website BlueNationReview in 2015, rebranding it in 2016 as “ShareBlue.” ShareBlue, he said Tuesday, would be the “Breitbart of the left…” so long as the financial contributions kept pouring. Brock also confirmed earlier reports that he plan to shift the focus of Media Matters for America away from Fox News and more towards attacking the alt-right and fake news. “A lot of

    The Consevative Treehouse ^ | Dec 4, 2016 | Sundance
    I have been reluctant to engage in speculation over potential Secretary of State candidates because the discussion therein is fraught with far too many nuances to outline succinctly without walking ourselves through a mine-field almost too complex to digest. Suffice to say, anyone who has followed politics for any substantive amount of time knows the inherent issue with an operational entity, The U.S. State Department, whose entire mission has been at the epicenter of ctrl-left globalist advocacy.

    Do you know Dan Bilzerian? He a millionaire and poker player with a $150 million net worth. He has a large social network, more than 20 million people. According to Viral Liberty: Part of that net worth comes from the ownership of a private jet company, Goat Airways LLC, which Hillary Clinton had been renting from in order to fly around the country to promote her campaign and annoy millions of Americans everywhere with her presence. However, after getting wind that the candidate was using his jet, Bilzerian has banned Clinton from flying with his company. Yeah, he’s with TRUMP!

    Dear Trump Fans, It Looks Like You’ll Have a Replacement For Your MAGA Hats Soon by Justin Baragona | 12:43 pm, November 28th, 2016 Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, it appears he is now looking for a more presidential headgear to replace his campaign mainstay of ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball caps. While he spent the holiday weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, Trump was spotted wearing a new hat that appeared to reference his soon-to-be status as the 45th President while showing USA in large font on the front.
  • Flashback: Have Republicans learned their lessons from the Franken-Coleman recount in Minnesota?

    Hotair ^ | 11/28/2016 | Ed Morrissey
    In the summer of 2009, the state of Minnesota conducted a recount that had the nation holding its breath. Would Al Franken unseat incumbent Norm Coleman, and allow Democrats a filibuster-proof majority in the US Senate? After seven months, that’s exactly what happened. Townhall Magazine commissioned me to write an investigative cover piece on how Democrats flipped an Election Night deficit into a recount victory. (At the time, Townhall and Salem had not yet bought Hot Air.)Rather than skullduggery, I found that Republicans had been outfought after ignoring lessons from a 2004 defeat in Washington. The painful loss provides...

    There are grand flaws and minor flaws in the plan among some anti-Trumpers to block him in the electoral college. A grand flaw: How do you justify letting 538 essentially random people overturn a vote of 130 million? That’s like substituting the results of a poll for the results on election day. If your electoral college is composed of trusted “wise men,” that’s one thing — although they’d have to be awfully wise, a la Madison, Hamilton, and Adams, to convince a modern nation to give them veto power over a national election. If your electoral college is composed...

    Submitted by Salil Mehta via Statistical Ideas blog,President-elect Trump won 306 electoral votes versus Hillary Clinton's 232 (24% less electoral votes).  Similar to 2000, the surrendering party then reversed course and put the nation through a recount, just for the sake of it.  What are the odds that such an exercise here would yield successful for Ms. Clinton?  Based on statistical randomness of re-assessing voter intent, the chance of Hillary emerging as the victor is far less than 10%. Anything can happen, but these lean odds do not rise to the level of putting our peaceful democracy into the hands of a temptuous recount scheme...

    The Green Party's 2016 Presidential candidate Jill Stein is announcing her intention to seek a "recount of votes in the battleground states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania." The campaign's press release, posted in full below, cites "a multi-partisan effort to check the accuracy of the machine-counted vote tallies in these states in order to ensure the integrity of our elections." The announcement follows on word that leaked out yesterday at New York magazine that top electronic voting experts and election integrity advocates have been encouraging the Hillary Clinton campaign to file for similar hand-counts and forensic analyses of electronic voting...

At that point, 13 of the FBI agents in NYC were also threatening to leak the information. As you can imagine, the scandal has the entire Obama Administration in full panic. We are told there are emails that could send Loretta Lynch to prison, as well as Bill and Hillary..... Jim Comey learned that some of his own investigators were tipping off...

Hillary then said she hoped crowd members would follow him outside and stage an “intervention.” No, this isn’t a story from TheOnion.com. This is life on...

    The questions around Hillary Clinton's health are still mounting, despite her campaign trying to play them off as "right-wing conspiracies", and a new poll by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) shows that medical professionals tend to agree with these health concerns. The AAPS poll was conducted on the Internet with 250 respondents, and was an informal poll designed to gauge the level of concern from qualified physicians regarding Hillary's health issues. The results of the poll are shocking, as 71% agreed that Hillary Clinton's health concerns are serious and may disqualify her from becoming president. Only 20%...

But the night Barack Obama was elected, one imagined all across town earnest souls in their driveways, scraping those stickers off. And so it is that Joe Biden, the Vice-President of the United States, traveled to Ireland to imply that Donald Trump is ‘un-American.” For good measure, when it comes to illegal immigration, Biden proclaimed a preference for “bridges” over “walls.” Think about that.

    Results from a straw poll of libertarian Republicans highlight the senator’s shrewdness. Even before the 2016 presidential election cycle began, most observers expected the race for the Republican nomination to be a war of attrition—especially compared to the Democratic primary, where Hillary Clinton was expected to enter the race as a nearly prohibitive frontrunner. And so back in March, when Ted Cruz announced his campaign for president, it was easy to infer that Texas’s junior senator would be planning for a long campaign that would leave him as the last candidate standing at the end of the GOP nomination fight....

    The presidency, it’s often said, is a job for which everyone arrives unprepared. But just how unprepared is unprepared enough? Political handicappers weigh presidential candidates’ partisanship, ideology, money, endorsements, consultants, and, of course, experience. Yet they too rarely consider an element of growing importance to voters: freshness. Increasingly, American voters view being qualified for the presidency as a disqualification.

    "Doesn't it sound logical? Doesn't it sound safe?" Based on his latest column, it seems like Washington Post editor Fred Hiatt could get behind a rewrite of John Lennon's Imagine and release an updated version to reflect today's call for gun control. [Imagine] Prohibition… [Imagine] Mass buyback… [Imagine] A gun-free society... He liked that last line so much, he asked his readers to repeat it with him: "Let's say that once again: A gun-free society." Bliss, he thinks. Those words -- prohibition, mass buyback, gun-free society -- are what Hiatt says the NRA has rendered "unmentionable." And so he believes...

    This week, Politico reported that Team Clinton is quietly urging the vice president not to run. The big guns haven’t been drawn yet, but the news publication noted that the mantra for the Clinton camp on Biden is “so sure, take your time, is the message people in and around the campaign seem to be sending—but if you end up at yes, you’re going to get hurt.” The hints from the campaign come in heavy: Biden would be to Clinton’s right if he ran, more out of touch with the party’s progressive base. Surrogates have sounded off, questioning his...
