    Using the ridiculous allegation that GOP poll watchers are really there to discourage minorities from voting, the Democratic National Committee filed a request Wednesday, asking a judge to block the GOP from supporting Trump’s recruitment of poll watchers.The DNC claimed in their filing that the recruitment of poll watchers is a coordinated effort to intimidate voters, and say it is violating a court order case from 35 years ago, when the party was forbidden from engaging in voter security measures back in 1982.The Republican National Committee said the filing is baseless.“The filing is completely meritless,” said Lindsay Walters, RNC...

    Brett Bartlett Mauthe arrived at his Texas polling place Monday morning ready to vote. It was the first day of early voting in Bulverde, a tiny town 30 minutes north of San Antonio. On his head he wore a hat supporting GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, Mauthe told KSAT 12 News. His T-shirt read “basket of deplorables,” a reference to a comment Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made about Trump’s supporters. Mauthe was stopped before he could cast his ballot. According to the election code, not just in Texas but in many other jurisdictions across the country, campaigning for or promoting...

    A Donald Trump voter in Texas was arrested Monday for wearing a T-shirt to the polls that mocked Hillary Clinton’s infamous comment in which she said half of Trump supporters were “a basket of deplorables.” Brett Mauthe, 55, was arrested in Bulverde, Texas after wearing a pro-Trump hat, and a T-shirt saying “basket of deplorables,” according to KSAT 12. Mauthe told the outlet that while he removed the hat at the request of officials, he refused to turn his T-shirt inside out and said he was not aware that wearing it was a violation of the election code.

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan is on the verge of a reckoning with House conservatives that threatens to end his speakership and extinguish his own future as a national political leader. The intraparty fight is set to begin in the days after the Nov. 8 election, when Ryan (R-Wis.) will be under immediate pressure from approximately 40 hard-line House conservatives frustrated with his handling of spending fights and shifting position on GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. The conservatives are eyeing a November leadership election and December spending deadline to determine how Ryan can lead Republicans — or if he...

    I was thinking about why rootless cosmopolitans care less about terrorism than rural and suburban people, despite facing a higher risk. The reason is very simple. Rootless cosmopolitans do not give a shit about their neighbor or their community. They could care less. A rural or suburban citizen cares about his family, neighbors, and community. Does not want them to suffer attack from terrorist. Meanwhile, if a terrorist attack strikes a big city, the odds are that a rootless cosmo in a big city will not know anyone affected. Even if their next-door neighbor dies, odds are they didn't even...

Their major problem will be passing something -- if they pass anything at all -- that is constitutional under the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech. The issue is that the freedom of speech includes the freedom to talk and listen to whomever you’d like about psychological matters -- thoughts, feelings, behavior, perceptions -- including as a paid service.

    AND NOW... amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke... it is time for... that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-The-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him — do NOT doubt him — with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio...

    Gen. Robert Abrams, chief of U.S. Army Forces Command, sees a greater need for training opportunities to help service branch personnel adopt new technologies and prepare for future multi-domain conflicts. Abrams noted soldiers at present maintain a ratio of about 1-to-1.3 in terms of deployed time versus dwell time for skill development, the Army said Friday. “Our No. 1 constraint for training is time available,” Abrams told an Association of the U.S. Army discussion on readiness. “Our commitments worldwide across the globe in support of our combatant commanders remain at a very high level, while we continue to simultaneously downsize...
  • Michael Medved Formally Endorses Hillary Clinton

    Can't publish the article because of copywrite issues, but Medved pretty much formally endorsed Hillary Clinton in his last op-ed in USA Today. For a rollicking good time check out his barf-fest opinion piece on 19 October. In the article, he bitches about all of the negative calls, emails, and correspondence he’s being getting. GOOD! He’s dead to me. Hope his show withers away like Beck’s.

    Jennifer Lopez is being sued for her performance at the Magazine Festival in Morocco after citizens were outraged that her performance was too “sexy”. The 45-year-old’s concert at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival featured sexy dance moves and stage outfits that showed off the “Booty” singer’s famous assets. The group reportedly objected to Lopez’s May 29 performance because it “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honour and respect.”

    The Washington Times ^ | October 25, 2016 | Ellen Sauerbrey
    America is a two-party system and after party conventions select the nominees, we have two choices and only two choices. Both nominees have demonstrated serious character flaws. The current spotlight is on lewd, vulgar comments from Donald Trump that cannot be defended. Nevertheless, his words could never be used to justify a vote for Hillary Clinton and her leftist agenda. Those morally pure conservatives who believe they cannot in good conscience vote for Mr. Trump but don’t like Mrs. Clinton need to define what outcome they are seeking by voting third party or not at all. With America at a...
  • Establishment Powers Build A Wall…Around Trump (jeb! and Kasich alert)

    10/25/2016 3:48:58 PM PDT · by longtermmemmory · 50 replies ^ | 10-25-2016 | staff
    It has been an increasingly caustic environment behind the scenes between Team Trump and GOP elites that has seen Republican power brokers effectively wall in the Trump campaign. GOP funding has been all but cut off, and so too has the institutionalized state-to-state ground game so critical in winning battleground states on Election Day. Donald Trump, and his millions of supporters, are truly on their own. The primary impetus behind this effort is said to be three-fold, coming in the form of House Speaker Paul Ryan, Ohio Governor John Kasich, and long-ago ousted, onetime GOP presidential front-runner, Jeb Bush. The...
  • Christian Family Loses Gay Cake Case

    The Court of Appeal in Belfast has ruled against the owners of a bakery who appealed their case after they were accused of discrimination for refusing to make a cake with the phrase “Support Gay Marriage.” Lord Chief Justice Sir Declan Morgan and two senior judges upheld County Court Judge Isobel Brownlie’s ruling that the McArthur family, owners of the Ashers Baking Company, discriminated against Gareth Lee. The judges said that refusing service because of the slogan could be classified as “direct discrimination.” “What they may not do is provide a service that only reflects their own political or religious...

    Top Media Reporter Hints Murdochs Could Tap CNN’s Zucker to Run Fox News Daniel Nussbaum 25 Oct 2016 In a piece exploring AT&T’s pending $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, top media journalist and author Michael Wolff floats an interesting theory: namely, that if either former News Corp. COO Peter Chernin or current CNN chief Jeff Zucker don’t replace outgoing Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, Zucker could be tapped by Rupert Murdoch’s sons to replace Roger Ailes atop Fox News. Wolff explains in a column at the Hollywood Reporter:

    Video of Chicago activist removing Trump sign prompts police explanation Brian L. Cox and Alexandra Kukulka Contact Reporter Chicago Tribune A video of a Chicago activist removing a Trump sign has generated thousands of views and prompted police in one suburb to issue a statement explaining why they did not charge him with sign theft. Jedidiah Brown posted a video on Facebook on Oct. 18 showing him removing the large sign from an unspecified location and placing it in the back of his car. "I think this it is my duty as a citizen of the United States of America,"...
