    The News Misleadia decided to publish a series of editorials, spread over 300 or more newspapers, denouncing President Trump for claiming they denounce him I grabbed a small sampling of the editorial titles. Here they are. Newspaper #1: "WE DENOUNCE TRUMP FOR ATTACKING US FOR DENOUNCING HIM!!! HOW DARE HE ACCUSE US OF COLLUSION AND CO-ORDINATION!" Newspaper #2: "WE DENOUNCE TRUMP FOR ATTACKING US FOR DENOUNCING HIM!!! HOW DARE HE ACCUSE US OF COLLUSION AND CO-ORDINATION!" Newspaper #3: "WE DENOUNCE TRUMP FOR ATTACKING US FOR DENOUNCING HIM!!!

    Direct Observation | 8/7/2018 | By Laz A. Mataz
    IHad a chance to pick up a USA Today after not seeing one for 10 years. WOW. I'll leave aside the leftist advocacy. Let me only address the materials and printing. It has become very small, dimensionally, VERY thin (4 pages per section), and largely used only two-color printing. It looks much less professional and newspaper-like than the local Atlanta UberLeft entertainment- and events-newspaper called Creative Loafing. I cannot see these guys finishing out the year. Discuss.

Me: No, "Yes" wrote "Roundabout". Them: Who wrote Roundabout? Me: No, "Yes". Them: YES OR NO? Me: "Yes Or No" was written by The Go Gos. Them: Who? Me: No. The band was "The Go Go's".

    A long time ago, one of the most important journalist standards was this: "Never make yourself the story." What does that mean? When reporting, journalists must avoid making themselves a subject of the news or participate actively in any story. Jim Acosta, of CNN, not only rejects that concept, he doubles-down, and attempts to become the entire focus of story after story. He turns the term "journalist standards" an oxymoron. His boorish and rude behavior at multiple press conferences makes him (probably intentionally) the center of attention. Witness this small sampling of outbursts: In January of 2018, Acosta's behavior towards...

    It’s been a fascinating ten years. From 2009 to 2017, I was instructed that a President is unrestrained by the Constitution, and that they are all-powerful and can enact laws unilaterally, via Executive Order, and that they can ignore the Constitution as they see fit. But NOW we learn that Presidents are completely powerless and cannot rescind any Executive Order, set any Administration Policy, or hew to the written law, about any topic, for any reason. That is because to do so would violate unwritten parts of the Constitution. Let us review the actions that the News Misleadia and the...

    Today, we heard from CNN, who decried Trump and his supporters for insulting and heckling them ... and repeated the oft-inferred comparison to fascism and Nazism. Iexpected these headlines: CBS: “Trump Criticized For Resisting Our Narrative; Experts Shocked” NYT: “Evil Racist Ignorant Fascist Bastard Trump Accuses Media of Bias” NBC: “Without Any Provocation, Trump Wildly Lashes Out At News Groups” CNN: “DEATH TO ANYONE WHO ACCUSES US OF INCITING VIOLENCE!” MSNBC: “What A Nazi Trump Is. F&$^ Him. What A C*$&*$&#R.” I didn't make it a daily thing, that would be forced. I'll make a new episode when warranted.

    Today, we discovered that the GDP, a measure of productivity and economic growth, accelerated to 4.1% this last quarter. It had to gall the News Misleadia, they must have been furious. I expected these headlines: CBS: “Obama Lays Groundwork For Massive GDP Growth In 2018” NYT: “Trump Fails To Reach 4.2% GDP, Economists Startled” NBC: “Uncontrolled Expansion Threatens Trade Relations” CNN: “Trump Russian Collusion Causes Freak Economic Spurt” MSNBC: “Trump Sucks. Everyone Should Hate Him. Effing Nazi.”I had fun creating these. I might make this a daily thing.

    n June 14, 2016, the Washington Post reported that Russian hackers had broken into the Democratic National Committee’s files and gained access to its research on Donald Trump. A political world already numbed by Trump’s astonishing rise barely took notice. News reports quoted experts who suggested the Russians merely wanted more information about Trump to inform their foreign-policy dealings. By that point, Russia was already broadcasting its strong preference for Trump through the media. Yet when news of the hacking broke, nobody raised the faintest suspicions that Russia wished to alter the outcome of the election, let alone that Trump...
  • Muzzleloaders Now Targeted by “Giffords” Gun Prohibition Lobby

    NRA/ILA ^ | 11/17/2017
    ...... Close on her heels this week was the recently-rebranded “Giffords” gun control consortium, which released a report that used the current debate over firearm legislation to … well, advocate for gun bans, too. But the Giffords report went well beyond the usual gun control talking points in extending its attack all the way to muzzle loading firearms. From the modern to the archaic, no gun is safe from the newly-emboldened prohibition lobby. ....(snip).... Semiautomatic carbines that use detachable magazines must go, they say, because they can fire too many (relatively small) rounds too quickly. But muzzleloaders -- which fire...

    For ten hours Thursday, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok gave riveting, compelling and, at times, farcical testimony before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. ...(snipped for excerpt size) The lowlights included Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). In a contentious back-and-forth with Strzok, whose well-publicized affair with a colleague resulted in the discovery of damning politically charged text messages, Gohmert questioned Strzok’s fidelity, blasted his “smirk” and condemned his conduct as a “disgrace.” Gohmert, “How many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her?”Not to be outdone were Strzok’s “defense attorneys” — the committees’ Democrats....

    Liberals love gay rights. Unless they can use gays to smear Trump. The New York Times posted this cartoon today of Trump-Putin love affair. Because gay relationships are a joke.This is who Facebook uses for “real news”. Glenn Greenwald weighed in: The NYT publishes an animated film mocking Trump and Putin for being homosexual lovers, using one disgusting gay stereotype after the next to do it. I’m sure they’ll claim some LGBT person was involved. Homophobia for progressive messaging is still bigotry.

    Powerline ^ | June 25, 2018 | PAUL MIRENGOFF
    Philip Rucker and Dave Weigel, two of the Washington Post’s most incorrigibly biased anti-Trumpers, lead off their latest editorial thinly disguised as a news report this way: President Trump on Sunday explicitly advocated for depriving undocumented immigrants of their due-process rights, arguing that people who cross the border into the United States illegally are invaders and must immediately be deported without trial or an appearance before a judge. Trump’s attack on the judicial system sowed more confusion. . . . Rucker and Weigel are among the confused. Either that or they are hiding the ball. 8 U.S.C. §1182(f) of the...

    Today, President Trump signed an Executive Order that will keep migrant families together during detention on the U.S.-Mexico border. The left and the News Misleadia (one and the same, I know) have been fiercely and turbulently condemning President Trump, likening him to Hitler and Mussolini, because he inherited policy and law of previous administrations and had children separated from criminal families at the border. The uproar and furor, continuing for days on end, have triggered some people -- celebrities and common people alike -- to threaten to assassinate him or his children. Today, with the Executive Order Trump signed, the...

    VATICAN CITY—In an honest, impromptu homily delivered Monday, Pope Francis admitted he is just making most of his theology up as he goes, ignoring thousands of years of official Church doctrine in favor of “whatever pops into my head at the time.” Where past Popes have been careful in their attempts to stay in line with official Catholic teaching, Pope Francis confessed he doesn’t really know much official doctrine, stating that he’s more of a “shoot from the hip kind of guy” when it comes to weighty topics of morality, salvation, God, and eternity. “People ask me questions, and I’m...

    I have certain imbedded spies in the Nobel Peace Prize committee: My sources tell me that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee has made a decision after the Kim Jong Un / Donald Trump G7 Summit. They have leaked this draft announcement to me. “We have decided that HILLARY CLINTON will get the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, in that she was prescient, intelligent, and gracious enough to lose to Donald Trump in 2016, and thus allow that narcissistic megalomaniac, unskilled, paltry and shameful man to win. He mistakenly and with great luck (and no skill), accidentally caused North Korea to disavow...

    An Indiana woman who injected her husband with a lethal dose of heroin before smothering him with a pillow may be responsible for nine other deaths -- and is suspected of serving her lover's remains to unsuspecting neighbors at a barbecue. Kelly M. Cochran, 34, was sentenced to 65 years in prison last month after admitting to killing her husband, Jason Cochran; but she was already serving a life sentence for killing and dismembering another lover, Chris Regan, who vanished in 2014, Indy Star reported. An upcoming documentary called “Dead North,” set to air on May 28 and May 29...
