  • Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game

    For years journalists opined self-servingly under the guise of objectivity and got away it because Republicans were too afraid to shatter that illusion of objectivity. They permitted the media to serve as the arbiter of what qualifies as “mainstream,” “extremist,” “racist,” and so forth, and made sure to stay within the media-determined parameters of any discussion. Donald Trump has blown up that absurd arrangement and is beating the media at its own game. He labels reporters in the same way that they label him. He upends their dishonest framing of debates by treating them as what they are, liberal partisans....
  • Dem rep: Steve Bannon 'is a stone cold racist'

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) on Friday accused President Trump's senior adviser Steve Bannon of being "a stone cold racist and a white supremacist sympathizer." Jeffries on Friday told MSNBC that any meeting between Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus must exclude Bannon. "We're looking forward to an open dialogue, but Steve Bannon should not be in the room," Jeffries said. Asked to elaborate on his position, he said that he does not wish to normalize Bannon. "Well listen he's a stone cold racist and a white supremacist sympathizer. It'd be hard for me to participate in any meeting with Steve...

    Many African-Americans are expressing outrage over a testy exchange between President Donald Trump and a veteran black journalist, with many considering the incident to be the latest indication of his inability to relate to them. Already skeptical of Trump, many blacks said they were exasperated by the fact that, during his news conference on Thursday, the new president asked April Ryan, longtime White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, to help broker a meeting for him with black lawmakers. "Will you meet with the Congressional Black Caucus?" Ryan asked. Trump responded: "I would. You want to set up the...

    A new hope Before Barack Obama entered the White House, before he even became the Democratic Party’s nominee, the Illinois senator was already claiming that as president, he would be uniquely qualified to help make the world a safer place. He articulated this view during a November 2007 interview with New Hampshire Public Radio. Seated inside the Concord, N.H., studios at the beginning of what would be a punishing primary race, Obama confidently imagined the day of his inauguration, at which point, he said, the world “looks at America differently.” Why? Just by virtue of who he was. As a...

Mike's job as a racist Trump supporter was to sell a couple of White Power T-shirts along with a "Make Canada Great Again" T-shirt. It was their laughably unsubtle attempt to link Donald Trump to racism.

He then said that he would swap out the plate and that the car was not his official vehicle.Per the House of Representative rules, the plates are "only for the use of the Member and spouse, as well as...

    Congress passed a proposal on Thursday that essentially bans Confederate flags from national cemeteries. With a 265-159 vote, the proposal makes it illegal to display the Confederate flag in Department of Veteran Affairs cemeteries – even on individual grave sites that honor soldiers who fought for the Confederacy, except on Memorial Day and Confederate Memorial Day. Introduced by Rep. Jared Huffman (D) of California, the proposal received support from 84 Republicans and all but two Democrats. Rep. Sanford Bishop (D) of Georgia, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, voted against the amendment, while Representative Betty McCollum (D) of Minnesota...

    Greg Nash Black activists took aim at the financial arm of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) on Monday, with scathing accusations that the group is tied too closely to corporations undermining human rights and other black causes. In a letter to members of the CBC, the advocates –– including leaders of Black Lives Matter and ColorOfChange –– called on the lawmakers to overhaul the board of the CBC Political Action Committee in order to "end the dominance of corporate lobbyists in its decision making." The critics say the current board is too closely aligned with corporations they deem harmful...

    Florida voters "fed up" with Trump and Clinton speak out CBS News March 18, 2016, 7:05 AM Voters in the key swing state of Florida are sharing their frustration about their options in the 2016 presidential race.

Clinton and Trump share the distinction of being among the least-liked candidates. "I would rather not vote than vote for either one of these candidates," one woman told CBS News contributor and Republican...

    It has long been known, though rarely spoken of publicly, that Valerie Jarrett, Senior White House adviser to Barack Obama and perhaps the single most influential figure in Washington D.C. deems the Supreme Court as the key to solidifying her version of America for generations to come. Maybe that is why she has allegedly set her sights on damaging perhaps the most conservative member of that court, Justice Antonin Scalia. Two days ago, Justice Scalia remarked during a case involving the University of Texas and race-based admission policies that favor minority students over white students. Scalia cited an amicus brief...

    Racism. It's the go-to for liberals. Every institution of American life is touched by it according to the racialists. Well, almost every one. Somehow, the industry that kills, disproportionately, black human beings for a profit isn't racist. It's "reproductive justice"! Enter Congressman Sean Duffy, a Republican from Wisconsin. On the House floor he gave a powerfully disturbing speech about the alarming levels of abortion in the black community and wondering why the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has been silent. But they haven't been silent. They've been complicit. The CBC, like every other black-led liberal "civil rights" group, is pro-abortion. The...

    Now that the first unvetted refugees are “home” with thousands more being flown in by the end of February, it may be more auspicious to offer those you care about a “Safe 2016” rather than the traditional “Happy New Year” this holiday season A New Orleans resident, whose husband was allegedly ordered by police to delete photos he had taken of Syrian “refugees”, sent out an email yesterday,asking: “Is anyone in Canada experiencing the same thing?” The answer is “No, not in Canada”, where mostly politicians and government employees showed up to welcome the first planeload of refugee arrivals last...

    Trey Gowdy has written a remarkable 13 page open letter to his Democrat counterpart on the House Benghazi special committee that reveals multiple scandals involving Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department revolving around her correspondence with Sidney Blumenthal. The letter to ranking member Elijah Cummings upbraids the Democrat for his recent conduct before exposing revelations contained in emails initially withheld from the committee by the State Department, but turned over last month. Five hundred of the 1500 pages of the emails concerned Blumenthal.
