    President Donald Trump ridiculed windmills as a source of energy on Monday, professing his appreciation for coal instead. The president spoke about energy during a fundraiser in New York, pointing out that coal was an “indestructible” form of energy, but it was easy to destroy a windmill. Why Windmills are the Worst — by @realDonaldTrump — Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) August 13, 2018 “Bing, that’s the end of that windmill,” Trump said, imitating someone shooting a windmill. The president pointed out that windmills also kill birds. “They kill so many birds, you look underneath some of those windmills, it’s like...

    The recent utterly unsurprising utter capitulation by the Fredocons to the SJW/tech/media campaign to deplatform and silence any right-wing voice who is not trying to sell you a cruise cabin is a symptom of a bigger problem. It’s not a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome, though Trump has utterly deranged these pointy-headed geeks. It is a symptom of Conservative, Inc.’s contempt for you.The dethroned conservagimps are angry with you. Donald Trump is not really the issue. He’s just a convenient target for those these establishment sissies. They truly despise you.You.They hate you because you refuse to honor and respect them, to...
  • Bill Maher Says ‘QAnon’ Shows That Trump Supporters Will Believe Anything

    Last night on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host laced into Trump supporters for getting behind the conspiracy movement QAnon, claiming that their blind support shows that they will truly believe anything. “I am Q,” Maher revealed during his New Rules segment of the show, under the guise of the newly-popular anonymous conspiracy theorist. The host went on the defensive, frustratingly demanding: “If Trump supporters don’t want us to call them stupid they have to stop coming up with things like Q.” “Just a few months ago…I was talking about how Republicans are now the Conspiracy Party and...

    ecently, Politico reporter Marc Caputo was angered at rude hecklers at a Trump rally who booed beleaguered CNN correspondent Jim Acosta. So Caputo tweeted of them, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”[snip] Again, demonizing the Trump voter as beyond cultural redemption is nothing new. During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton infamously dismissed Trump supporters as “deplorables” who were “irredeemable” and were “not America.” After her defeat, Clinton proved her early smears were no accident. Speaking in India, she again slurred Trump supporters as being racist, sexist, and xenophobic for their...

    During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night, Kanye West defended his decision to support Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, and said he would not be “bullied” by those on the left. “Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the Chicago rapper told Kimmel. "And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks --...

    Last month, Marco Gutierrez, leader of Latinos for Trump, contacted me about joining a focus group on CNN’s new morning show “New Day” with Alisyn Camerota. I survived the late-night pseudo-comedian Jimmy Kimmel earlier this year. Why not take on CNN next? I had always wanted to visit New York City and the network paid for all expenses. On August 5th, I flew in for a one-night visit to the Big Apple and stayed right across the street from the Time Warner building.Monday morning, I entered the headquarters of the Fake News Media. An intern introduced me to the five...
  • For Most Trump Voters, ‘Very Warm’ Feelings for Him Endured

    Pew ^ | August 9, 2018
    In the wake of Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory, an overwhelming majority of those who said they had voted for him had “warm” feelings for him. By this spring, more than a year into Trump’s presidency, the feelings of these same Trump voters had changed very little. In March, 82% of those who reported voting for Trump – and whom researchers were able to verify through voting records as having voted in 2016 – said they felt “warmly” toward Trump, with 62% saying they had “very warm” feelings toward him. Their feelings were expressed on a 0-100 “feeling thermometer.” A...

    A women’s studies professor predicts President Trump’s supporters, whom she calls “overt racists,” will “provoke violence” when Trump leaves the Oval Office – even if it is after two terms. Julie Novkov, chair of the political science department at the State University of New York at Albany, concludes in a recent article for New Political Science that Trump supporters having political power is “dangerous.” She defines core Trump supporters as overt racists who view immigrants, blacks, Muslims, and Jews as “enemies of the American state” and are “particularly inclined to embrace propaganda." The public university professor argues there are no...

    Gee, thanks, Mike! On today’s Morning Joe, speaking of the people who attend Trump rallies, Mike Barnicle said: “These people who show up are victims of a con. Not all of them are racist. Now, some perhaps are—there’s no doubt about that. But they’re victims of a con. They need a leader, a president, who will do something about their lives; to improve their lives. That’s the tragedy.” No doubt that “some” at Trump rallies are racist, Mike? Who let Sarah Jeong sneak in?Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    HILLSBORO, Ohio — After President Trump’s less-than-stellar performance side by side with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, many Trump critics may have hoped, reasonably, that Trump’s approval ratings — already historically low compared with other presidents — would take a nose-dive. Instead, his numbers remained basically steady. A July NBC/Wall Street Journal sampling even found that Trump’s approval rating climbed one point from the previous month, to 45 percent, and, most notably, his 88 percent approval among Republicans is the highest of his presidency. Republican pollster Bill McInturff, part of the team that conducted the poll, said the stability...
  • STUDY: Researchers falsely frame Trump supporters as racists

    - A Columbia University sociologist recently published a study showing that much of the academic research into President Trump’s voters is marred by prejudicial designs, distorted data, and outright misrepresentations. - Musa al-Gharbi points out, for instance, that one data set used in a Washington Post article to accuse Trump voters of racist motivations actually shows that Trump voters were less racist than those who voted for Mitt Romney. A new study finds that much of the research conducted on President Trump’s voters is marred by prejudicial designs, distorted data, and outright misrepresentation of Trump’s words. Led by Musa al-Gharbi,...

    Energized by the internet persona Q’s complex web of conspiracy notions about the forces aligned against President Donald Trump, Q’s followers have spread virally online and now, in real life too, forming a movement known as QAnon. From somewhere in the vast and mysterious “deep state,” a dissident agent rises up to give the people cryptic clues about how their heroic president will push back the forces of evil and make America great again. The renegade informant is known only as “Q,” and if he actually exists, it’s not as a character in a movie, but somewhere in the Washington,...

    President Trump held a raucous rally in Tampa, Florida, Tuesday night. Thousands of supporters packed the arena to hear Trump hammer his critics and tout his administration’s accomplishments. There was plenty of hecklers, comedy and chants about Hillary and 2020. Trump stopped to pick on one of his favorite targets, the media, approximately half-way through the speech. The president heckled the press in the press pen as "fake news" and the audience roared, chanting "Fake News" and "CNN Sucks" at the reporters. On of the favorite targets of the audience was CNN's Jim Acosta, who tweeted multiple videos of the...

    Bless his heart! CNN’s Jim Acosta routinely attacks President Trump on air, pushing one scurrilous “anonymous source” after another. No wonder, at last night’s Trump Rally in Tampa, he got an earful from “The Deplorables!” They let him know what they think – what WE think – of CNN and the rest of the Leftist Media. . . . .

    For once, the most memorable thing about one of the president's rallies was not his baldfaced lies nor his attacks on reality. Rather, President Donald Trump's Tampa rally will be remembered for the reporting of CNN's Jim Acosta. He revealed more accurately than most what the Trump base, or at least part of it, looks and sounds like and what Trump must do to hold its attention. He tweeted: "Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I'm very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will...

    As the tax evasion trial of former presidential campaign manager Paul Manafort began, the Trump-hating Democratic Media Complex renewed its howls, hoping Manafort flips and gives up Trump’s head. Mollie Hemingway, the conservative senior editor from The Federalist, asked a question on Twitter. “At this point, I genuinely believe reporters/pundits truly don't understand Donald Trump, his rhetoric, his administration, etc., and aren't just pretending to be idiots,” Hemingway wrote. “But my question is why they continue to be paid to cover a man they clearly don't understand in any way.” Mollie, they’re not idiots. They’re journalists, highly educated, adept at...

    About thirty Trump rally attendees gathered in Tampa, Florida State Fairgrounds at about 2:00 AM in the morning to make certain they get right up front for the massive POTUS Trump political rally, this evening starting at 7:00 PM EST. As the morning daylight Sun rose over Tampa, the early crowd swelled to between 300-500 people. Should be a "BLOCKBUSTER" Trump Rally/Lovefest this evening in Tampa.

    A top Tennessee Democratic Party's communications official made disparaging comments about President Donald Trump and lashed out against a suggestion to reach out to his voters, describing them as "idiots." Mark Brown, a top communications official for the Tennessee Democratic Party currently working as the leading spokesperson to help Democrat Phil Bredesen win the Senate race against Republican Marsha Blackburn, has made a number over-the-top comments on social media, including calling the president "f---stik" and "Putin's b----," the Washington Free Beacon revealed. "Exactly, f--- 'reaching out' to Trump voters. The idiots aren't listening," Brown wrote in one of the tweets...
