    November 27 Trump Won, but We're Not Done! By Lloyd Marcus Among eating Turkey, passing out, and eating more turkey, plus pumpkin cheesecake (a dollop of whipped cream on top), I caught the news on TV. It seemed the lead story of every broadcast was that Trump is an uncouth, two-faced SOB. The incredulous mainstream media is going to bombard us for the next four years, spinning every news story to further the left's despicable lie that stupid racist whites elected America's version of Hitler. The left has already begun doubling down on its efforts to demonize conservatism and block...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Much of the commentary about Kellyanne Conway’s Meet the Press appearance this morning has focused on her criticism of the prospect of Mitt Romney as Secretary of State. We’ll discuss that in a “Note” below but would like to highlight a striking statement by Chuck Todd that immediately preceded the Romney discussion. Todd was grilling Conway over potential conflicts between Trump’s business interests and his role as president. Conway eventually had enough, and observed “I went back and looked at what all the press clips and the conversations on shows like this eight years ago. It was basically debating just...

    Bill Donohue comments on Hillary Clinton’s speech at an African American church in Philadelphia yesterday: Hillary Clinton took her campaign to Mount Airy Church of God in Christ yesterday afternoon. According to one report, “she urged parishioners of a black church in Philadelphia’s West Oak Lane neighborhood to choose ‘hope over fear’ and vote to send her to the White House.” Another story described how she stood “at a wooden lectern in the center of a purple-carpeted altar,” making her pitch to the faithful. There has been no complaint from the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State,...

    As has become typical in an election marked by its often unpleasant surprises, I awoke to a storm of outrage on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Newt Gingrich had told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that she was “fascinated with sex” and didn’t “care about public policy.” Mr. Gingrich unleashed this boorish attack after Ms. Kelly tried to pin him down on whether the many accusations of sexual assault against Donald J. Trump, and his own words on the matter, should disqualify him from the presidency. That Mr. Gingrich (with whom I once hosted a television show) thought the best way to deflect...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is standing by his support of Donald Trump following the release of a 2005 clip showing the Republican presidential nominee speaking lewdly about women.  Cruz, who endorsed Trump in September after a months-long holdout, was asked Monday by an interviewer in Muleshoe if he was "still backing the Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump."  "I am supporting the Republican nominee because I think Hillary Clinton is an absolute disaster," Cruz replied.

    “The Tonight Show” host humanized a dangerous man on Thursday night. Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on “The Tonight Show” Thursday night, and all some people could talk about afterward was a head rub. Toward the end of the interview, Fallon asked the Republican presidential nominee if he could mess up his famous head of hair on live TV, leading to raucous applause and the sort of bite-sized video that both the creators and consumers of internet media eat up. Before the rub, Fallon did sneak in a few subtle quips, like asking Trump if he knew what a coin...

Hillary and Bill have funded their Versailles lifestyle by selling out America to her enemies by accepting bribes, aka speaking fees, from Russia and the jihadi Gulf states.

    White is ok, so long as it’s worn by the Democratic nominee. Two weeks ago, Philadelphia Inquirer fashion critic Elizabeth Wellington bashed Melania Trump for daring to wear a white dress for her RNC speech. Wellington acknowledged that “on a strictly fashion note,” Melania pulled off an “angelic look.” But the white designer dress was a “scary statement,” and supposedly gave off the subliminal message “that in the G.O.P. white is always right.” Ten days later, Wellington changed her mind and decided that white was an ok color for politicians to wear. When Hillary Clinton took the stage last week,...

    Another shooting in Europe yesterday, this time in Germany, shocked the media into action. When news broke of an active shooter who began killing people in front of a McDonalds and then moved inside to the Olympia Shopping Center in Munich, it looked like another ISIS attack. But something was different this time. Eyewitness reports began trickling in indicating that the shooter was heard complaining about refugees, so the media shifted gear, dropping the usual journalistic reticence when it comes to discussing a killer’s motives. Many seemed certain that this killer was finally part of the always-expected, but never-quite-materializing, backlash...

    Illustrating that FBI Director James Comey is a liar and a fraud, his agency helped convict a Navy reservist last summer of the same crime that he just cleared Hillary Clinton of committing. In that case the reservist from northern California got criminally charged—as per FBI recommendation—for having classified material on personal electronic devices that weren’t authorized by the government to contain such information. The FBI investigation didn’t reveal evidence that the reservist intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel, so he was just being “extremely careless” like Clinton and her top aides. Similar offenses, vastly different outcome. The...

    Hillary Clinton likely dodged criminal charges Tuesday for a simple reason: the bar for bringing criminal charges against a politician, particularly a high public official, is so much higher than they are for anyone else. Prosecutions against such high public officials only go forward when there is “definitive” evidence. Evidence that prosecutors know will lead to a certain conviction. Why do I say that? Because earlier in my career I was chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission. I worked frequently with prosecutors. The reputational loss public officials face from criminal charges can be so great that prosecutors feel...

    Cruz's reception in New York was chilly. Back in January, Ted Cruz made the mistake of assuming the rest of America still hates New York. His dismissal of "New York values" didn't endear him to the Empire State — Governor Cuomo demanded an apology from Cruz, and the New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News does best — and as expected, the comment came back to haunt him as he campaigned in the Bronx on Wednesday. Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

    (snip) The problem is not, as some commentators have claimed, a legal doctrine known as "standing" -- a rule that requires that a person who comes to court must have a proper legal interest at stake in the litigation. Rather, the biggest barrier is a principle of judicial restraint known as "the political question doctrine." A key idea underlying this doctrine is that the Constitution itself, in its text or spirit, sometimes takes a certain sort of constitutional question away from ordinary courts and makes some other decision-maker the real judge -- a special court for a special question.

By Trump turning the word "schlong" into the verb "schlonged" to describe a woman losing to a man, "The Donald" is being taken to the mat for using the vulgar slang, which describes a man's penis, in such a manner.

    Update: Hall ignored the deadline and proceeded to issue unconstitutional marriage licenses. As reported by The Denver Post: "This was not a hard decision. I'm proud to do this for my community," Hall said Tuesday afternoon, adding, "it's not about politics. This is about people who love each other." Hall's office has issued 88 marriage licenses to same-sex couples since Wednesday, when the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals struck Utah's ban on gay marriage.

    Grammy-winning producer Emilio Estefan is not happy with Donald Trump’s anti-Mexican rhetoric — and he’s gathering some friends to take a stand against it, according to Billboard.com. Billboard reports that Estefan, 62, has enlisted dozens of friends — including Shakira, Carlos Santana, Thalia, Pepe Aguilar and his wife, singer Gloria Estefan — record We’re All Mexican, which he describes as a musical “celebration of Hispanics and our accomplishments.” The track will also include reggaeton singer Wisin, Wyclef Jean, radio personality Enrique Santos and famed Spanish-American chef José Andrés, and will be released in late September. “There’s a message being sent...

    For not doing their jobs, Obama defends Muslims but jails a Christian In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck drivers who refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic beverages.However, earlier this week, the Obama administration pursued federal action against Kim Davis, a Christian court clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and a federal judge put her in jail.Here’s my take on both of these incidents: if someone refuses to do their job, they should be fired. An...

     A Muslim flightattendant has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEO) claiming she was suspended from her job for not serving alcohol — which is against her religious beliefs. Lena Masri, an attorney for the Council of American Islamic Relations Michigan (CAIR), says Charee Stanley followed management’s directions, working out an arrangement with her coworkers to accommodate passenger requests for alcohol. However, Masri said, ExpressJet Airlines put Stanley on administrative leave after another attendant filed “an Islamophobic complaint” that referenced Stanley’s head scarf. “We notified ExpressJet Airlines of its obligation under the law to reasonably accommodate Ms. Stanley’s religious beliefs,” Masri said at a news conference in Farmington Hills...

    How come: 1. A white racist kills 9 blacks in a church and everyone screams to ban the Confederate flag, but a gay black man kills two white reporters and nobody wants to ban the rainbow flag or the African liberation flag? 2. Hillary Clinton compares Republicans to ISIS and nobody bats an eye, but Curt Schilling compares ISIS to the Nazis and everyone has a conniption (and Schilling gets suspended)? 3. A few hundred Black Lives Matter people march in Minnesota and they get plenty of media coverage, but over 20,000 march in Birmingham in Restoring Unity, retracing the...

    After self-described “racist” killer Dylann Roof executed the black members of a church Bible study, people found photos of the killer holding the Confederate battle flag. There were also photos of him burning and stomping on the American flag — per the request of a social media activist. Suddenly, the ‘Southern Cross‘ was removed from the public square all over — state houses, companies, flag poles and college campuses. The murders prompted the call for the digging up the body of Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the Ku Klux Klan. The Virginia murderer had in his possession the ‘gay...

    GEORGETOWN, Del. – Former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader Molly Shattuck was sentenced Friday to two years of probation after pleading guilty to raping a 15-year-old boy at a vacation rental home in Delaware. The 48-year-old collapsed to her knees in the courtroom after she was sentenced and wept as she apologized. Shattuck, who received a suspended 15-year prison sentence, must report every other weekend to a probation center in Delaware, register as a sex offender and continue therapy. The teen's parents said Shattuck stole their son's innocence and urged the judge to send her to prison to send a message to...
