  • Marion Marechal-Le Pen quits politics following aunt’s election loss

    When we hear the name Le Pen in relation to French politics it’s most often a reference to Marine Le Pen, the losing candidate in the recent presidential elections. But this is something of a family business and the latest headline has to do with her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen. She was the youngest woman elected to the legislature since the French Revolution and has been widely viewed as more of a rival to her aunt than a teammate because of her distinctly more socially conservative views. Her time in the political spotlight is over now, however, at least for...

    Unfortunately, broadcast television networks today are not interested in appealing to the massive Trump electorate Despite healthy ratings, ABC promptly cancelled Tim Allen’s popular sitcom, Last Man Standing this week. The show was a successful part of the ABC line-up for six years. While some media reports claim that ABC cancelled the show due to poor ratings, the truth is that the program was the second highest rated comedy and the third highest rated “scripted” show on the network. In fact, during the final years of the show, Last Man Standing drew an impressive average of 8.1 million viewers each...

    As Fox News Sidles Left, Sinclair Broadcasting Moves In Broadcasters you likely never heard of are possibly attempting to move in on Fox News and take some of their conservative viewership. Fox News has potential competition from another right-leaning media network. Sinclair Broadcasting is buying up 42 of Tribune Media’s broadcast stations for nearly $4 billion dollars, raising speculation that the conglomerate is prepared to compete with Fox News for their Republican and Libertarian audience. With Tribune’s 42 TV stations, Sinclair will cover more than 70 percent of households in the United States. It will become the largest local broadcast...

    Red Alert Politics ^ | May 8, 2017 | By Robert Petrosyan
    By now, everyone has had a full day to view and process the results of the 2017 French presidential elections. In an election that upended the power of the top two political parties in France, which are Les Republicains and the Parti Socialiste, independent candidate Emmanuel Macron defeated Marine Le Pen of the Front National with 66 percent of the vote compared to Le Pen’s 34 percent. This victory by Macron, a pro-EU candidate who identifies as a centrist, upends a global trend of populism that began with Brexit and peaked at the election of President Donald Trump in the...

The Conservatives were at 46 percent, down one percentage point, against Labor on an unchanged 28 percent, the paper said.

    #IStandWithJimDeMint I am told that there is a coup underway by the GOP coupled with the Bannon/Brietbart alliance to take control of the Heritage Foundation. Is it the Mercer family that is behind this? The GOP didn’t like the conservative principles that Jim DeMint stood for. They claim that Jim focused on the action side and the white paper side suffered. We don’t need any more “think tanks.” The constitutional advocates need more DO Tanks!!!!! The word is that Bannon will replace DeMint at Heritage. All of that money and power in the hands of Steve Bannon is enough to...

    Top staffers loyal to ousted Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint have stepped down from organization, according to a new report. The Daily Beast reported Tuesday evening that top staffers -- including Executive Vice President Bret Bernhardt, Vice President of Communications Wesley Denton, Vice President of Policy Promotion Ed Corrigan and DeMint’s chief of staff, Camera Seward, have resigned. The Heritage Foundation announced DeMint’s resignation earlier Tuesday, blaming the former leader for "significant and worsening management issues that led to a breakdown of internal communications and cooperation.” DeMint, a former South Carolina senator, took the helm of Heritage in 2013. "Jim...

    Media industry website Mediaite reported Friday that “conservative fat cats” are considering the formation of a new conservative media outlet. According to Mediaite’s report, the pace of the “serious discussions” has been picking up in the wake of rumors suggesting additional changes are in store at Fox News. A source reportedly told Mediaite that “two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network” are meeting Friday to discuss creating a rival to Fox News. The group is concerned that Fox News is moving too far left...

    Fox News star Sean Hannity is looking to leave the network and may be out by the end of the week, according to a Daily Beast report. Hannity was a long-time ally of Fox News co-president Bill Shine, who resigned from the network Monday morning. Hannity defended Shine on Twitter as the executive came under scrutiny for his role in Fox’s sexual harassment controversy since Roger Ailes’ departure from the network last summer. In a series of tweets last week, Hannity said that Shine’s departure would be “the total end of the FNC as we know it,” and used the...

    Actually they're not totally new, but they're sure gaining popularity! We are all too familiar with the liberals’ S.I.N. tactics (shift the subject, ignore the facts, and name-call) to deny people the opportunity to hear an opposing point of view. They have now increased the frequency of three other blatant tactics to prevent people from hearing conservative truths. “Shout them down!” “Shut them down!”

    Two conservative journalists have sparked outcry on social media by making what some have interpreted as a white supremacist hand symbol at a recent visit to the White House. Freelance journalist Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for Russian news outlet Sputnik, posed for a picture behind the podium in the White House briefing room. In the photo, they are making a hand sign that can be used to signify “white power.” “Just two people doing a white power hand gesture in the White House,” Fusion senior reporter Emma Roller tweeted, alongside a screenshot of the picture.

    Portland Police officers dressed in riot gear patrolled the march, and worked to keep the opposing groups on opposite sides of the street despite several cases of "intermingling." Officers said they saw demonstrators with guns, improvised weapons, and defensive gear in the area, but no violence was reported. Police did, however, arrest one person wearing a pumpkin outfit for disorderly conduct. The person was later identified as a man named Luis Marquez. Officers say they found a collapsable baton on Marquez.

    Politico is reporting that several sources on the board of the Heritage Foundation are saying there is an organized effort to dump the organization's president, Jim DeMint.  DeMint, who has a close relationship with the Trump White House, is accused of being "too political" and corrupting the foundation's historic mission of research and policy formulation. There's also a sense that he's made the institution too much about himself. "He has been a congressman and senator. They are solo performers. When you are in the Senate, life is all about the senators," said one board member, who asked for anonymity to...

    The phrasing here skirts awfully close to suggesting right-wingers are complicit in the “anti-fascist” violence directed at them. If a provocateur like Coulter “throws herself into a volatile situation,” don’t be surprised if the locals are provoked in a “volatile” way, I guess.Charles Cooke anticipated this idea of “volatility” yesterday in summarizing the campus view of speech this way: “Your opinions are fighting words because I’ll riot if you express them.” [A]cross the country, conservatives like her are eagerly throwing themselves into volatile situations like the one in Berkeley, emboldened by a backlash over what many Americans see as...
  • Liberal protesters storm Heritage Foundation’s Washington, DC, office. It hilariously backfires.

    Liberal protesters stormed the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday — but the demonstration backfired when Heritage later took to Twitter using the event to promote one of its policy papers. Just before noon, around 200 protesters marched up to and inside the conservative organization’s Capitol Hill offices. Within about 20 minutes, however, they were gone, the Washington Examiner reported. The protesters voiced their opposition to President Donald Trump’s proposed budget blueprint. Congress has not yet voted on a 2018 fiscal year budget but is expected to do so by Friday night to keep the federal...

    Conservatives hate science. Liberals love science. Right? Yeah, liberals love science until… Until it tells them nuclear power can be safe. Until it tells them fracking doesn’t contaminate groundwater. Until it tells them genetically modified crops can be wholesome. Until it tells them the environment is actually getting cleaner, not dirtier. Until it tells them that fetuses have unique DNA, a heartbeat, and brainwaves. Until it tells them vaccines don’t cause autism.

    Kate O’Beirne was part of National Review’s world before she joined the staff. When she became the magazine’s Washington editor in 1995 her resume already included stints at Senator Jim Buckley’s office, the Reagan administration, and the Heritage Foundation. She served NR in that position for eleven years and then became president of National Review Institute for six more.
