    This week Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the transcript of an August 22, 2017, Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. The Washington Post said the committee has been probing charges that the Trump campaign “coordinated with the Kremlin,” escalating the issue from mere “collusion.” Readers of the 312-page transcript, available here, might form their own judgments.   Simpson was not under oath but the Fusion GPS founder still brought along attorney Joshua Levy. Simpson gave the names of Fusion partners but they are blacked out. There may be others, but Simpson could not recall their names.

  • The Media's Year of Trump Hating

    Townhall.com ^ | January 17, 2018 | Brent Bozell
    As we approach the first anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration, it is painfully obvious that our "news" providers are a highly agitated brigade of the "Resistance." A new Media Research Center study finds that from Jan. 20, 2017, through Dec. 31, 2017, the evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC were overwhelmingly hostile in both content and tone. The study, co-authored by Rich Noyes and Mike Ciandella, comes with a jarring headline: "2017: The Year the Media Went to War Against a President." It is indisputable that no president in the history of the republic has been visited...

    We complain about how biased the so-called mainstream media is, but what do we do about it? CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC and CBS dominate TV news. The New York Times and The Washington Post dominate print media. Everywhere you turn you can’t escape their presence. CNN is carried in far more markets than Fox News. President Trump complained about having CNN but not Fox News when traveling in hotels overseas. Google News artificially elevates The New York Times and The Washington Post on its homepage and in search results. A Pew survey just came out that revealed Americans trust our media even...
  • In Nassau County, an Influx of Democrats Threatens a G.O.P. Stronghold (From 2013)

    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — With a pivotal local election looming in the fall, the Republican-controlled Nassau County Legislature recently approved new district lines that could help the party secure at least two more seats. A local Republican club has increased its campaign chest tenfold over the last two years, bringing in individual contributions of tens of thousands of dollars from a family paving company, a real estate developer and other donors with business before the county, according to disclosure records. And if past elections are any guide, the party can also turn for campaign help to workers from the county’s special...
  • The Ground ZOT mosque must be built!!!!

    The Washington Post ^ | 8/18/10 | Kathleen Parker
    It is hard to imagine that anything has gone unsaid about the so-called Ground Zero mosque, but an important point seems to be missing. The mosque should be built precisely because we don't like the idea very much. We don't need constitutional protections to be agreeable, after all. This point surpasses even all the obvious reasons for allowing the mosque, principally that there's no law against it. Precluding any such law, we let people worship when and where they please. That it hurts some people's feelings is, well, irrelevant in a nation of laws. And, really, don't we want to...
  • MSNBC's Rubin Slams GOP Guest As 'Inhumane Beast,' 'Raised by Wolves'

    On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as frequent guest Jennifer Rubin was finally being credited as an "MSNBC political analyst," the alleged "conservative" Washington Post columnist demonstrated that she will continue to use her new MSNBC contributor status to deliver liberal analysis as she demonized a Republican guest by asking her if she is an "inhumane beast" who was "raised by wolves." Notably, just a couple of days ago, Rubin declared that she still wishes to be identified as a "conservative" when Hardball host Chris Matthews wondered if he should drop the "conservative" label for her as he admitted that...

    On a normal day, there aren’t many people heading to Google to figure out how to survive a nuclear strike. But Saturday was not a normal day. Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Eastern, searches for “how to survive nuclear” peaked in the U.S., from being almost nonexistent to being almost twice as common as “how to make pasta.” The increase was centered in Hawaii, where about 90 minutes earlier, a warning had gone out over the state’s emergency alert system: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL”. You can see when that alert went...

    Erdogan said the operation against the Afrin enclave aims to “purge terror” from his country’s southern border. Afrin is controlled by a Syrian Kurdish militia known as the YPG. Turkey considers the YPG to be a terrorist group linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) that has waged a bloody insurgency within its borders. A YPG spokesman in Afrin said clashes erupted after midnight between his unit and Turkish troops near the border with Turkey. Rojhat Roj said the shelling of areas in Afrin district, in Aleppo province, killed one YPG fighter and injured a couple of civilians on...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    In a laughable article for Thursday’s Washington Post, the paper’s Weather Editor Jason Samenow assured readers that record-breaking cold temperatures being experienced across the country this winter were “exceptionally weird” and in no way challenged the theory of global warming. “The record-crushing cold that rang in 2018 was like a blast from the past that will become increasingly rare,” the piece began. Samenow continued: “The frigid spell was particularly noteworthy for occurring when the planet is steadily warming because of the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Climate warming from the increase in these heat-trapping gases does not eliminate...

    Democrats have let us know they are not impressed with the good news to come out of the GOP tax reform plan, fully engaged in downplaying at its finest. Major companies have rewarded employees bonuses and salary increases in the aftermath of the Republican tax plan, yet Democratic leaders like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed the benefits as mere " crumbs " compared to the supposed joy ride corporate America is getting. Other Democrats decided not to cheer the news that Wal-Mart was raising pay and giving out bonuses , instead calling it a "PR stunt." The Washington...

    It's officially 2018, which means the midterm elections are right around the corner. When a successful Republican tax reform package kicks in next month, Democrats will have to reach even deeper to find a winning argument for November.In 2017, Russia was used as a political hammer by Democrats against President Trump and Republicans closely associated with him. As the Special Counsel investigation drags on, with multiple investigations on Capitol Hill failing to turn up evidence of collusion, it's still being used as a talking point against the White House. But according to former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, using the Russia...

    Green sea turtles do not develop into males or females due to sex chromosomes, like humans and most other mammals do. Instead, the temperature outside a turtle egg influences the sex of the growing embryo. And this unusual biological quirk, scientists say, endangers their future in a warmer world. Already, some sea turtle populations are so skewed by heat that the young reptiles are almost entirely female, according to a new report in the journal Current Biology. “This is one of the most important conservation papers of the decade,” said biologist David Owens, a professor emeritus at the College of...
  • Vanity - Elected Democrats silent on Michael Wolff book. Media goes wild destroying themselves

    Amazing...isn't it. very few, if any Democrat elected politicians have anything to say about the just released Michael Wolff book. Meanwhile the nutcase Democrat, Hate Trump, left-wing, Media is having a field day ranting about a no dividend paying "Trump Lie Telling fest". Why? The "Wolff" tome is pure political poison for any elected politician, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, it is as simple as that. Democrats hate Trump...but, they are not that stupid to know that embracing this farce of a book by insane Michael Wolff is a sure ticket to never being elected again. Case closed.

    Even many reporters from liberal publications are questioning the veracity of Michael Wolff's book of gossip, Fire and Fury. The latest such person who reveals just how laughable the vetting process of Wolff's book was is Mark Berman, a reporter at the Washington Post. Wolff placed Berman among others attending a breakfast at the Four Seasons restaurant with Ivanka Trump. It turns out that Berman was most definitely not there and he had a very good reason for not attending as he revealed to anchor Fredricka Whitfield on CNN Newsroom on Saturday.
  • Cuomo says New York will sue over GOP tax law

    01/03/2018 5:01:46 PM PST · by matt04 · 94 replies
    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.) said Wednesday that New York state will sue the federal government over the new Republican tax law, but legal experts are skeptical the lawsuit will hold up in court. Cuomo said New York will challenge a provision of the law that limits how much Americans can deduct from their federal taxes for payments made to state and local governments. Many of the people most affected by that provision live in states run by Democrats, which tend to have higher state and local tax rates. Cuomo, widely seen as a potential contender for the Democratic presidential...

    Controversy erupted over Christmas week when the Washington Post tweeted out an opinion article by Raphael Lataster they had published in 2014. It claims to show that the existence of Jesus as a historical figure is likely no more than a myth. Critics questioned the timing of the tweet as a slap in the face to Christians preparing to celebrate one of their holiest days.Possibly more importantly, many seized on the reaction to the 2014 publication. Historians, including a professor who had taught Lataster in a class about the historical Jesus, demolished the claims. Its ideas were described as...
