  • Run by the right, OAN is the best news channel you're not watching

    New Yorkj Daily News ^ | December 25, 2016 | Don Kaplan
    The most balanced cable news on television is owned, operated and backed by big money fans of the right wing. There are no "mainstream media" liberals pulling the strings behind OAN, the 3-year-old digital channel available in about 15 million homes. And it's by far one of the most fair news outlets around, serving up a daily diet of ad-free, non-ideological, nonstop news — without smirking, snarky anchors or much fanfare. In terms of balanced content, it leaves Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNN in the dust. It's about time someone filled the void. Most cable news now more closely...

    Variety ^ | April 23, 2017 | staff
    Bill O’Reilly isn’t wasting any time. The former Fox News host will returning to pontificating with a new episode of his podcast “No Spin News” on Monday at 7 p.m. ET, reads a banner announcement on his personal website. The podcast, which O’Reilly has been hosting for years, is available to premium subscribers of his website. The news comes less than a week after Fox News gave O’Reilly the axe (along with a possible $25 million payout) following an investigation into multiple allegations of sexual harassment. If O’Reilly does indeed return Monday, it will mark his first time speaking publicly...
  • Why the War on Yemen Is Ignored

    The American Conservative ^ | 2016 | by Daniel Larison
    Amanda Taub tries to explain why the war on Yemen is mostly ignored and Syria’s conflict is not: Conflicts gain sustained American attention only when they provide a compelling story line that appeals to both the public and political actors, and for reasons beyond the human toll. That often requires some combination of immediate relevance to American interests, resonance with American political debates or cultural issues, and, perhaps most of all, an emotionally engaging frame of clearly identifiable good guys and bad guys [bold mine-DL]. Most wars — including those in South Sudan, Sri Lanka and, yes, Yemen — do...
  • Syrian Civil War Explained: The Fight for the Middle East

    04/08/2017 2:52:06 PM PDT · by Mozilla · 24 replies ^ | October 09, 2016 | by Primoz Manfreda
    Syrian civil war grew out of a popular uprising against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in March 2011, part of Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East. The brutal response of the security forces against initially peaceful protests demanding democratic reform and end of repression triggered a violent reaction. An armed rebellion to the regime soon took hold across Syria, dragging the country into a full-scale civil war. Main Issues: The Roots of the Conflict The Syrian uprising started as a reaction to the Arab Spring , a series of anti-government protests across the Arab world inspired by the...

    Neiman Marcus is once again selling Ivanka Trump's fashion line after it disappeared from the retailer's website in early February. Shannon Coulter, the originator of the anti-Trump #GrabYourWallet boycott movement, posted on Twitter on Wednesday that two new Trump brand items had surfaced on the retailer's website.

    American Lookout/Reuters ^ | March 10, 2017 | John Binder
    Americans are much more aligned with President Donald Trump’s view of the country, rather than the globalist view held by the big business elite. And now, Starbucks is suffering because of it! Reuters reports: YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumers’ sentiment toward companies and their willingness to purchase from those brands, noted that the data around this boycott is different because both measures are declining. Starbucks’ consumer perception levels took an immediate hit as measured by YouGov BrandIndex’s Buzz score, falling by two-thirds between Jan. 29 and Feb. 13, and have not recovered. Starbucks Buzz score fell to 4 from 12...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | March 10, 2017 | Jim Hoft
    On Friday Jon Decker from FOX News Radio accosted The Gateway Pundit’s Lucian Wintrich. Then Decker started reportedly “screaming” and pointing that Lucian is a “Nazi” and The Gateway Pundit is a “white supremacist” website! How awful! And this guy works for FOX RADIO!Lucian Wintrich sent this report: “This man accosted me. He pushed me in the back room and then grabbed my arm. He started screaming to the entire press room that I’m a Nazi and The Gateway Pundit is a white supremacist publication.” Apparently, if you do not belong to the liberal mainstream press you are considered a...
  • NYU Gender-Swap Experiment Backfires, Proved Hillary Would Be Less Likable As a Man

    Truth Revolt ^ | March 9, 2017 | Tiffany Gabby
    This is actually quite a delightful study. Two left-wing NYU professors designed an experiment to prove that Hillary Clinton would have been treated more fairly, and won the election, had she been a man. Likewise, the study was meant to reveal that if President Trump were a woman, no one would have tolerated his antics. Well, the experiment backfired. Not only was it revealed that Trump would have fared exceedingly well as a woman, people despised Hillary Clinton, the man, a lot more than they did the woman. "We both thought that the inversion would confirm our liberal assumption—that no...

    Comparitech ^ | March 7, 2017 | Paul Bischoff
    How the US conducts surveillance and investigation of electronic communication media–particularly the internet–is largely shaped by three pieces of legislation: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act (USA PATRIOT Act) Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-collection and Online Monitoring Act (USA FREEDOM Act) To give a very brief history, FISA was enacted in 1978–before the proliferation of the internet–and governed both the physical and electronic surveillance of primarily foreign powers and agents. The Patriot Act, enacted shortly after the September 11, 2001...

    WASHINGTON – Kelli Ward, a conservative Republican U.S. Senate candidate who challenged Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., during the 2016 election, says McCain and other Republicans who continuously oppose President Trump are facing a rugged future. “People like John McCain and Sen. Jeff Flake, who oppose Donald Trump are going to find themselves out in the cold and hopefully out of a job,” Ward told WND. “Career politicians are one of those many things that’s wrong with Washington, D.C.,” she continued. “President Trump said we need to drain the swamp. It’s going to take more than one cycle to do just...

    Hundreds of students rioted at Middlebury College in Vermont this week, preventing a respected libertarian scholar from speaking and leaving one female professor in a neck brace. Charles Murray was invited by the American Enterprise Institute Club on campus to discuss his book, “Coming Apart,” which chronicles the struggles facing the white working class in the United States. However, a mob first protested and later assaulted both Murray and Professor Allison Stanger.
  • CNN quick to declare Obama innocent of wiretapping accusation — but Twitter says ‘not so fast’

    President Donald Trump on Saturday accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower in the latter stages of last year’s presidential campaign. A spokesman for Obama was quick to deny the accusations, while congressmen and women have vowed to get to the bottom of the accusations. Either way, it’s hard for anyone at this point to make a determination either way whether or not Trump’s accusations against Obama are true or full of hot air. However, that didn’t stop CNN on Saturday from fully declaring Obama’s innocence. Running a story about Trump’s claims Saturday, CNN declared: “Trump falsely accuses...

    ASHINGTON – It might seem outrageous and unprecedented that a newly departed president would devote himself to overthrowing his successor, but that is exactly what a mountain of growing evidence appears to indicate. “Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment,” the Daily Mail reported Wednesday. The source also told the paper that Obama loathes President Trump and considers his presidency illegitimate. “Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy – Obamacare, the social safety net and the welcome mat...

    Patriot Retort ^ | March 4, 2017 | Dianny
    There is an explosive scandal going on right now. But it isn’t the one the Enslaved Press has been focusing on. The scandal isn’t about Donald Trump and his alleged “ties” to Russia. No matter how much hacks in the Fake News cry that it is “as bad as Watergate.” In fact, the only thing that is Watergate-esque about this entire mishegas is the actions of outgoing President Barack Mihous Obama. Nixon’s people tapped Democrat headquarters during the 1972 election. The new Nixon tapped Donald Trump. Nixon didn’t use the power of the Federal Government to perpetrate his crime. But...

    Politico ^ | 03/01/17 10:14 AM EST | Madeline Conway
    Rubio, speaking to Fox, endorsed Trump’s points on law enforcement and making the immigration system more merit-based. After movements on those two fronts, Rubio suggested, “then you can do something very reasonable with the people who have been here a long time who are not gang bangers, who are not criminals, who are not a threat to public safety.” As a member of the bipartisan “Gang of Eight,” Rubio pushed a comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013 that ultimately passed the Senate but not the House, though he later walked back his support for some of its provisions. Alongside other...

    The New York Times sought to market itself as the truthful alternative to President Donald Trump Sunday night in an advertisement shown during the Academy Awards. Both Trump and others on Twitter were quick to ridicule the Times for the ad. Donald J.

Try reporting accurately & fairly! 5:42 AM - 26 Feb 2017 The Times aired its first TV ad in seven years. Titled “The Truth,” the creators of the ad sought to contrast the messages coming...

    Former President Barack Obama and other top Democrats are focused on winning majorities in state legislatures by fighting the reconfiguration of voting districts — known as gerrymandering — in an effort to win nationwide in 2020. Fox News reported Obama is working with national committees like the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to conduct his new venture since leaving office. “Where he [Obama] will be most politically engaged will be at the state legislative level, with an eye on redistricting after 2020,” said former White House political director David Simas, speaking on Obama’s plans late...

    At what point do we break up the USA? If your answer is “NEVER!” accompanied by some version of “How could you even consider seriously considering such a thing?!”, then you are a cultist. An Americultist. For the non-Americultists out there, the question – and it is an important one – stands: At what point do we break up the USA? How about at the point DC enforces a policy of open, systematic, “legal” child sacrifice? Nope. That’s been going on for decades. We’re apparently not willing to stand against the America Idol over that one. What about the DC-imposed...

    A little-known figure, Mrs. Eliza (Elizabeth) Powel, had the historic exchange with Benjamin Franklin when he said to her “Madam, We have given you a republic, if you can keep it” at the conclusion of the 1787 U.S. Constitutional Convention. Keep this in mind: If the U.S. architects had produced a democracy, Eliza, as a woman, wouldn’t have had a voice at all. She could not vote or hold public office, yet she kept her republic. So how did she keep it? Interestingly, Dr. Franklin did not counsel her how to ‘keep’ the U.S. republic. Instead, he merely counseled her...

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Marshall said, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that of order and chaos.” -From The Life of George Washington, Revised Edition 1832. The chaos gripping our present society is certainly not the ‘balanced’ republic Marshall was referring to. Our system is functioning more like a plane crashing - like a democracy. Let’s explore ‘balanced republic,’ ‘democracy’ and ‘order and chaos’ by using an analogy. The U.S. government is comparable to a commercial aircraft. The pilot and co-pilot are the elected representatives. They are selected by qualified passengers (or U.S. voters)....
