    Congratulations Schaper and Deplorables for giving us a LOL, louder and funnier than anything Baby Kimmel could ever come up with It was never supposed to happen. Nor will the mainstream media ever let it go viral: The day that Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Arthur Schaper and California conservative friends Robin Hvidston, Channell Temple, Wes Parker, Lori Masinas and Celeste Grieg left comedian Jimmy Kimmel waving his baby rattle in a rage on his own television set. When things don’t go off the way Jimmy Kimmel, Schaper-described as “the late-night talk show host with a terminal case of Trump...
  • Jonah Goldberg: Why the ‘Cult of Trump’ Has Taken Hold

    ... Liberals roll their eyes at the claim that President Obama violated democratic norms or abused his power. But putting aside the specific arguments, conservatives saw plenty of abuses and violations, from the IRS scandals and Benghazi to the Iran deal. Obama said many times he couldn’t unilaterally implement the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program because he wasn’t a “king.” Then he did it anyway. And the process repeats itself, getting worse and more egregious each time. When I criticize Trump, the first response from countless Republicans is, “Oh yeah, why was it okay for Obama!?” If I point...

    House Republicans will lean heavily on Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her comment that the GOP tax cut amounts to just "crumbs" for people in their quest to retain the majority this year.In an interview with reporters on Thursday, National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, who runs the House campaign arm, said the top Democrat is helping Republicans politically with her own well-publicized criticisms of the GOP. Most recently, she called the Republican tax reform plan “Armageddon,” and said the $1,000 bonuses some companies awarded as a result of corporate tax cuts are “crumbs.”“Her crumbs comment,” Stivers said....

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — President Trump on Thursday likened House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s calling the recent tax law-related bonuses “crumbs” to Hillary Clinton’s infamous “deplorable” comments from the 2016 campaign. “That could be like ‘deplorable,’ ” Mr. Trump said of Mrs. Pelosi’s comments. “Those two words — they seem to have a resemblance. I hope it has the same meaning.”

    Former President Barack Obama resurfaced on Friday and took a shot at Fox News viewers, saying they’re “living on a different planet” than people who consume mainstream media. Obama made the remarks on the premiere of the new monthly Netflix series “My next guest needs no introduction with David Letterman,” which hit the streaming service on Friday morning. Early in the episode, Obama asked Letterman about his retirement but the veteran talk show host quickly let the former president know who was boss. “Now here’s how this is gonna work. I’m gonna ask you stuff, and then you respond to...

    Roseanne Barr said her character’s support for President Donald Trump in the revived sitcom “Roseanne” is a reflection of her own views and also true to the show’s roots. The sitcom brings the Conner family and the life of the country up to date when it debuts March 27 on ABC. “I’ve always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working class people. And in fact it was working class people who elected Trump,” Barr said Monday.

On Fox News's "The Five," Watters fought back against criticism from Democrats and some Republicans over Trump's remark, which some have deemed racist and offensive to immigrants from those nations.

    It is disheartening to see the ongoing rift between those conservatives supporting President Donald Trump and those opposing him -- a rift that began before Trump and may survive his presidency. Many conservatives opposed Trump's nomination because they believed he was not a true conservative -- not even really a bona fide Republican -- but rather a narcissistic opportunist who wanted to take his game show hosting and self-promotional platform to a grander stage. Many also thought that a Trump presidency, even if it would somewhat forestall the Obama-Clinton agenda, would not be worth the long-term damage it would do...

    Sixteen lucky supporters of President Trump closed out 2017 with a moment they will likely never forget. More than one year after a dedicated group of men and women began taking up residence on the Southern bridge any time President Trump was in town, their Commander-in-Chief finally came through in a bag way by inviting a small group of them back to his private club.

    "He's already done enough to get my vote again, without a doubt, no question," Wes Lewis, a retired pipefitter and one of Whitt's regulars, declares as he deals the day's first hand of cards. He thinks the mines and the factories will soon roar back to life, and if they don't, he believes they would have if Democrats and Republicans and the media — all "crooked as a barrel of fishhooks" — had gotten out of the way. What Lewis has now that he didn't have before Trump is a belief that his president is pulling for people like him....

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ)  is still acting like a thorn in President Trump's side - even on Christmas weekend. Speaking to ABC's "This Week," Flake condemned the president's rallies as bastions of resentment. "When you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes, you look out there and you say, 'those are the spasms of a dying party,' " Flake said on ABC's "This Week.""When you look at the lack of diversity, sometimes, and it depends on where you are, obviously, but by and large, we're appealing to older white men and there are just a limited number...

    The New York Times put a condescending, left-wing populist screed disguised as “news analysis” on Monday’s front-page. Reporters Michael Tackett and Jim Tankersley misleadingly assume the tax-cut bill moving through Congress is a sop to the wealthy, then use that false fact to portray Trump as a hypocrite for pushing it, in the would-be expose “Ally of the ‘Little Guy’ In Words, Not Actions”: President Trump rarely misses a chance to offer himself up as the champion of “forgotten” Americans, men and women who feel ignored or derided by elites and believe, as he frequently says, that the “system is...

Although she’s a liberal, she acquired a fair bit of sympathy for the outlook of the folks she met, not unlike the former head of NPR, Ken Stern, who traveled in red state areas and wrote Republican Like Me: How I Left the...
  • Trump References Clinton’s Slam on His Supporters During Rally: ‘We’re Proud Deplorables’

    (Video Clip at Link) President Donald Trump relived Hillary Clinton's infamous comments slamming his voters last year, telling a crowd of supporters on Friday that "we're proud deplorables." Trump spoke at a rally in Pensacola, Florida, where he touched on a variety of subjects, including urging Alabamas to vote for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct. He also got around to one of his favorite subjects: rehashing his election victory in 2016 over Clinton. Clinton referred at one point on the campaign trail to half of Trump's supporters as being in a "basket...

    In the last 12 months, U.S.-backed combat operations drove ISIS from its last bits of territory. America withdrew from the Paris agreement on climate change, UNESCO, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The House and Senate have come within sight of overhauling the tax code and dismantling Obamacare. Most recently, Donald Trump -- in a spectacular departure from his predecessor's Middle Eastern diplomacy -- has moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. It is as if a hurricane has swept through Washington. Each fallen pillar represents a very deliberate reversal of the status quo ante policies of Barack Obama. The entire...
