  • Bakers refused to make pro-Trump birthday cake for 9-year-old boy: Report

    The Washington Times ^ | August 7, 2017 | Bradford Richardson
    A boy whose letter to President Trump made national headlines last month reportedly wanted a pro-Trump cake for his birthday party, but his mother was unable to find a baker willing to fulfill the order. At the July 26 White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a boy named Dylan who said Mr. Trump was his favorite president. When she later released the letter publicly, the boy’s last name was blacked out. The only identifying clue was that everyone called him “Pickle.” The media scrambled to verify the letter’s authenticity, and the next day,...

    Major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. Reporting by the Daily Caller News Foundation has revealed that Wasserman Schultz's top information technology staffer Iman Awan was arrested Monday after trying to flee the country amidst investigations into Awan concerning banking fraud and a criminal cybersecurity probe. Awan wired over $280,000 to Pakistan after the FBI recently recovered multiple smashed hard drives from Awan's home. Despite being blocked from the House computer network since February amid allegations of "committing...
  • Why We Published the Name of a Covert C.I.A. Official

    NYT ^ | 07/22/2017 | na
    .. At a security conference this week, the director of the C.I.A., Mike Pompeo, criticized The New York Times for a recent article about an officer who was tapped to run the agency’s Iran operations, a newsworthy promotion because it was an indication of the hard line against Iran that President Trump promised during his campaign. Mr. Pompeo said that the publication of the official’s name, Michael D’Andrea, was “unconscionable” and put his covert status in jeopardy. Mr. Pompeo’s comments led to a wider discussion about the publication of Mr. D’Andrea’s name, and some readers wrote to us to express...

    Chauntyll Allen wasn’t sure how to feel on Monday when she traveled to Justine Damond’s memorial site in the affluent South Minneapolis neighborhood known as Fulton. The 43-year-old leader of a Black Lives Matter group in St. Paul, Minnesota, stood near Xerxes Avenue and 51st St. by the late Damond’s home, watching the mostly white residents share remarks about police brutality and the need for police reform. Many of those same people, she recalled, were nowhere to be found when Allen and her fellow activists were out marching for justice for black police-shooting victims like Philando Castile and Jamar Clark....

    Sorry for the vanity. But I am fed up with people complaining about Trump and his tweets and Leftists saying Obama endured bad treatment with 'class'. Obama was handled with kid gloves. No Media comment when he 'scratched his nose or cheek' with his middle finger. No Media outrage when he said 'they bring a knife, we bring a gun'.

    The George Soros funded activist organization, Media Matters has targeted Sean Hannity in an attempt to get him booted off of Fox News. Media Matters has posted a list of HannityÂ’s advertisers for liberals to contact, anyone who supports America and the first amendment needs to contact the Hannity advertisers and let them know if they pull their ads, we pull our business. Cars.com, Casper, Crowne Plaza, Leesa Sleep, Peloton, Ring.com and USAA insurance are the only companies that have pulled their ads from his show, but Hannity supporters are letting those companies know that there will be consequences: View...
  • Remember when personal conduct did not affect your job?

    americanthinker.com ^ | 4/24/2017 | Silvio Canto, Jr.
    Back in 1998-99, many Democrats and liberals defended President Clinton. My favorite defense was that President Clinton's private behavior did not affect his job, i.e. “look at your 401-K!” and the unemployment rate was something I heard about on TV back then! I find this interesting because Bill O'Reilly’s alleged personal conduct did not affect his job either. After all, his ratings never dropped. This is why I've grown so skeptical of any public figure accused of sexual harassment, specially when we hear about them on The New York Times. Back in the summer of 1998, when many of us...

    An alcohol-fueled obscenity and racial slur-laced tirade have cost a Miami senator his job. CBS Miami reports Republican Sen. Frank Artiles officially submitted his letter of resignation on Friday. ...Artiles was chastised for using a form of the “n-word” during an exchange with two African-American colleagues Monday night. It happened when he was out with fellow Senators Audrey Gibson from Jacksonville and Perry Thurston from Fort Lauderdale.

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

    It seems that Jordan A. Maney is not as committed to “diversity” and “love” as she would have us believe. Recently, Ms. Maney, the black owner of a San Antonio event planning business, “All The Days Event Co.,” got a bit upset when she was asked to plan the wedding for a couple whose chosen venue contained the word “plantation.” ... As ATTN also notes, Maney also told the inquiring customer on the receiving end of her discrimination, “You’re having a wedding at a grave-site essentially. How are you going to laugh and celebrate on so many people’s blood, and...

    A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…” Scahill’s inane tirade derailed the whole segment from the moment he opened...

    I've heard many versions of this story, but I’ll go with the one reportedly told by Dr. Abraham Twerski, a renowned psychiatrist and Orthodox rabbi. (I’ve trimmed and paraphrased it a bit.) The bearded Twerski goes to the airport in his Hasidic garb — the hat, the long coat, the buttoned white shirt. Another Jew, this one modernly dressed, is annoyed by Twerski and unloads on him: “What’s wrong with you? Must you insist on parading around in that medieval get-up as if it were Purim? Don’t you realize how ridiculous you look? You bring nothing but scorn and embarrassment...

    So this happened. I have a hypothesis. Gay people often get away with murder. Certainly behavior that straight men could never get away with. So my producer and I put that to the test. Behaving the exact same way and even repeating the exact same phrases to women at the mall. The only difference? One of us is gay. One straight. The reactions are, well... entirely expected. You're welcome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngATnQFL-FQ

After the liberal media deceptively edited a video of him, they accused him of "being okay" with pedophilia, but that's simply not the case. You can see his full apology and retraction here. [Ed. -- There's no link given on the original site, which is why I can't post the link to the retraction here.] Having said that, the liberal left jumped ALL OVER Milo during these past 48 hours. However, are they as ferocious when video emerges of someone on THEIR team joking...

    It's hard to separate Donald Trump's businesses from his politics. As a result, some are calling for a boycott of any company that sell Trump products. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October following the publication of a leaked tape that showed Trump making lewd comments about women. Coulter used the hashtag to encourage people who were offended by Trump's language and actions to boycott companies doing business with his family.

    I admit it. I’m a night owl. Producing the Hugh Hewitt Show, and for decades well before that, going back to the Johnny Carson era, I’ve had a weak spot for late night television. I can look past the 10:1 ratio between jokes at Republicans’ expense versus Democrats’ expense. That bias, like virtually all mainstream media bias, is chronic and will not go away anytime soon. That said, last night, James Corden on CBS’ Late Late Show took it to a whole new level…by leaving the country in order to “protest” the Trump executive order on immigrant travel. Last week,...

    Chicago improviser and stand-up comedian Shannon Noll will play the title character in the new stage show "Barron Trump: Up Past Bedtime," opening Saturday at The Revival in Hyde Park. "It's a variety show in the style of 'Pee-wee's Playhouse' and it's basically Barron Trump getting read a bedtime story, and then deciding to stay up past his bedtime and play with his imaginary friends," Noll said Friday. Those include: Ben Carson, a "woke young kid and her Auntie, who has just come in from India," Betsy Ross and Vladimir Putin as "sort of a gossiping teenager." Though Noll conceived...

    At least six out of the seven countries targeted by President Donald Trump’s latest executive order have entry policies that discriminate against Israel. Trump signed an executive order Friday temporarily prohibiting citizens from seven majority Muslim countries — specifically Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen — from entering the U.S. Of that group, Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Sudan refuse entry to foreign travelers holding passports or travel documents indicating that they have been to or are affiliated in some way with Israel.
