    Former CIA Director John Brennan is warning that lawmakers who try to protect President Trump will face a "reckoning." "Leadership of House Intel Committee has traded last vestige of integrity for politics," Brennan tweeted. "With other investigative shoes yet to drop, legislators who try to protect @realDonaldTrump will face November reckoning. Hopefully, bipartisan effort in Senate Intel Committee will endure..."
  • Scarborough Concedes: Texas Blue Wave Overhyped

    Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming blue wave that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited. And then the election happened. And its true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40. On...
  • What's this nonsense about Democrat turnout in Texas?

    Drudge and establishment/leftwing news sites have been going crazy with the notion that incredibly high Democrat turnout in Texas means that Texas is going blue. But election results show that Republicans are absolutely SPANKING Democrats in turnout, getting 50% more votes than the Democrats. And that's with the Democrats having fiesty, expensive primary contents while the Republicans are mostly merely coronating their incumbent governor, Greg Abbot, and senator, Ted Cruz (although both candidates had multiple opponents). Abbot received 1.4 million votes, compared to Lupe Valdez and Andrew White, who will be headed to a runoff after receiving about half...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla., urged those present at a vigil honoring victims of a mass shooting at a high school in her home state on Wednesday to hold elected officials responsible. We must hold other peoples elected officials accountable. We must make sure that they hear us, she said at the vigil Thursday evening. We will help lead you to help other communities elect people who will do the right thing, who will make sure no ones families ever have to go through this again, she added. At one point, the crowd chanted no more guns during the vigil, according...

    Vox ^ | February 2, 2018 | Zack Beauchamp
    Rep. Devin Nuness infamous memo the document numerous House Republicans claimed would demonstrate fundamental anti-Trump corruption at the FBI was released early Friday afternoon. The entire thing is three and a half pages and only takes a few minutes to read closely and carefully. After doing that, there is only one conclusion a fair reader could draw: There is absolutely nothing here. There is no proof in the memo that the FBI is biased against Trump, no proof of abuse of surveillance powers by the FBI, and no proof that the investigation into the Trump campaigns ties to...

    Since it is, unfortunately, SOTU Day, we might as well have a bit of fun while we wait for this tedious, pointless charade to be over with. The Washington Examiner has the coverage of a fun video prank put together by Campus Reform. They went out to interview some students at New York University and find out what they thought about the President’s State of the Union address. (That would be the one which won’t happen until tonight.) As usual, there was no shortage of students who were all too eager to jump in with their own critique of...

Tomorrow we do an online search and compile the results and determine the winner. If someone likes we could do a friendly wager.

    Hip-hop icon Jay-Z said the drop of black unemployment under President Trump does not make him a good leader because "money doesn't equate to happiness" in an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday night. "To give him a little bit of credit too, he is somebody who is now saying, look, Im growing Im dropping black unemployment," Jones said of Trump. "Black people are doing well under my administration." "Does he have a point that maybe the Democrats have been giving us good lip service, but no jobs. He may say terrible things, but putting money in...
  • The quietest endorsers of misogyny and white supremacy are the most dangerous [BARF]

    NBC "News" ^ | January 22, 2018 | by David Dante Troutt
    For years, Harvey Weinsteins and Donald Trumps private audiences could be divided into two types of (often) men: his vocal supporters and his silent endorsers. The outspoken supporters whether casual misogynists or white supremacists are henchmen who helped take down womens careers or allies in Congress who are themselves proponents of a white nationalist agenda. Most critics of both Weinstein and Trump consider this base group the real problem. For they are the fringe who have somehow become the norm. But the people who really sustain misogyny and white supremacy are the quiet endorsers. Because they have the...

    This is how a media smear works. House Republicans view a secret memo on the Obama administrations spying on the Trump campaign, express outrage at what they learned and demand the memo be released to the American people so they can see what their government was doing. A left wing site, Hamilton68, that tracks alleged, but unnamed, Russia-linked influence networks on Twitter announces those alleged networks are promoting the Release the Memo hashtag. Then NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian trumpets the unsubstantiated findings of the left wing group with a false statement accusing House Republicans of working with Russian propagandists,...

    Republicans claim a secret document reveals a Hillary Clinton plot "worse than Watergate" and they're getting a big boost from Russian bots On a day like Friday, with a shutdown looming and DACA in the balance and Chuck Schumer huddling with President Trump in the White House, you might logically expect right-wing Twitter to be blowing up but not, necessarily, with the seemingly unaccountable hashtag that's dominated the platform since Thursday evening: #ReleaseTheMemo. But then again, you might not logically expect American conservatives to work in concert with Russian state propagandists and Twitter bots though by now,...

    Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nations news business. According to American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy, a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989. Currently, 45 percent see a great deal of political bias, said the report, according to an analysis by the Nieman Lab. Maybe worse, said Nieman: Less than half of Americans...

    Oh, we’re back to this again. For a White House intern was captured throwing up what many on the Left say is a white power hand gesture in a recent photograph with the president. The picture included President Donald Trump and the fall intern class all had them giving a thumbs up for the photograph, except Jack Breuer, who was giving the ‘OK’ sign, which has been used by virtually everyone. Progressives claim the three fingers form a “W,” while the index finger curling to meet the thumb to form an “O” shape somehow forms a “P.” WP= White power...

    A former Trump campaign aide who took a guilty plea in special counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe was the linchpin of the FBIs investigation of Kremlin influence in the 2016 election, new reports say. In a drunken gossip session with an Australian diplomat in London in May 2016, Trump aide George Papadopoulos claimed that Russia held political dirt on Hillary Clinton, The New York Times said Saturday. Months later, e-mails hacked from the Democratic National Committee showed up on WikiLeaks, and the Australians told the FBI about the Papadopoulos conversation. The disclosure sparked the FBIs probe into possible collusion between...

What they are doing could lead to violence, and what they are doing is about as deeply irresponsible as anything Ive ever seen. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On MSNBC's #AmJoy, guest Malcolm Nance had harsh language for President Donald Trump saying that the American people have not faced this much of a constitutional threat since King George III. He also compared Trump supporters in the government to "Saddam Hussein's people's council."While discussing the possibility that President Trump could fire special counsel Robert Mueller, Nance vehemently warned Americans that they needed to defend the democracy. The last time we had a crisis of this magnitude was not the civil war. The civil war at least used the precepts of the constitution to make a legal separation of the...
