  • THERE it is! USA Today next up to give AOC a ‘Republicans pounce’ assist with her deleted ‘blunder’

    As we told you earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to dunk on Republicans with a tweet about the GOP posing an “older male member” of the party next to a cardboard cutout of her. However, AOC’s dunk attempt turned into an epic faceplant after it was noticed the “Republican” in the photo was actually her Democrat colleague, Rep. John Yarmuth. After that, AOC couldn’t reach the “delete” key fast enough. But the MSM being the MSM, ABC News took a “Republicans pounce” angle to the story, and they’re not alone, as evidenced by USA Today:

    Cindy McCain hit back at conservative blogger and commentator Michelle Malkin on Twitter after Malkin attacked her late husband, Sen. John McCain, Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “You never knew @SenJohnMcCain . You should be so lucky,” the late senator’s widow tweeted. McCain, an Arizona Republican, supported increased border security but also advocated for compromise. He died in August, and attendees from both sides of the political spectrum gathered to pay their respects as he laid in state in both the Arizona Capitol and the U.S. Capitol Rotunda and for his funeral. The former prisoner of war and...

    Friday on NBC’s “Today Show,” NBC and MSNBC host Chuck Todd boasted about the significance of a Buzzfeed story reporting President Donald Trump directed his then-legal counsel Michael Cohen to lie about a real estate project in Russia. Todd told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that one couldn’t “overstate” the significance of the report. “In the Trump era we have a hard time sometimes under-calibrating — and everybody is like, ‘Oh my God, oh my God — this is it, this is it,'” Todd said. “You can’t overstate how significant this development is, with the caveat of if true. I mean, a...

    As the Prince of Wales accompanied Meghan towards the altar, where Harry was waiting, Handel’s Eternal Source Of Light Divine played. The spell-binding cantata was sung in Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan and featured David Blackadder as the trumpet soloist. The Duke of Sussex has revealed he picked the poignant music his wife walked down the aisle to. Harry, speaking in the audio commentary notes for a new Windsor Castle exhibition about his wedding, said: “I was looking for something completely different and ended up stumbling across this piece of music. “Something that epitomises the...

    In many ways Austin, Texas, was the last place Beto O’Rourke should have been with just over a month left until a pivotal U.S. Senate election. The deep-blue city, smack dab in the middle of a deep-red state, likely doesn’t have many of the undecided voters the Democrat, whose aggressive challenge to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has become somewhat of a national fascination, needs to win this November. So in front of a crowd estimated at 55,000 people, a truly impressive number for a U.S. Senate race, with the Austin skyline behind him, O’Rourke fired up the crowd with an...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters alleged Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist" because he questioned her IQ level. On Saturday night, President Trump addressed the annual Gridiron Club Dinner, an event that is known for its humor. Trump took jabs at his own administration and many of his rivals, and at one point joked that Rep. Waters should "immediately take an IQ test." [Snip] The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trump’s own mental agility before accusing him of racism.

    As I said in a previous post, I read a lot of stupid sh*t on a daily basis. Our Founding Fathers wouldn’t have written the Second Amendment if there’d been “assault rifles” back in the day. Gun control advocates don’t want to take our guns away. “Arguments” that Willie Mae Samuels (above) trots out in her column The big change: Gun bless America at northwestgeorgianews.com. And then this . . . Now we have decided that guns are the answer to all of our disjointedness. Guns are the answer to all of the hate and confusion and race baiting,...

    Some of you may find it disturbing that one of Trump’s chief apologists was basically saying that he talks policy like a drunk at happy hour. Some of you may hear Trump constantly contradicting today what he said yesterday and decide he’s an idiot. From now on I’m going to try to think of him as a little bit like my dog, Frieda. Frieda is extremely intelligent, but her memory is only good for about 90 seconds. When you listen to Trump’s Inaugural Address, or his first State of the Union, keep reminding yourself that he’s reserving the right to...

    Former State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward issued a statement targeting establishment Senator and “remain” supporter John McCain after the United Kingdom voted to “Brexit” the European Union on Thursday. Dr. Ward said in the statement: The fearmongering has failed, and the will of the British people has prevailed against elite opinion, causing heartburn for America’s ultimate establishment insider, John McCain. Just this week, John has voted to allow the federal government to prowl through our internet browsing histories without a court warrant and to deny self-defense rights based on secret lists without any judicial approval or oversight as required by...

    June 20, 2002 A Scholar Recants on His 'Shakespeare' Discovery By WILLIAM S. NIEDERKORN n 1995 Donald Foster, a professor of English at Vassar College, made a startling case for Shakespeare's being the author of an obscure 578-line poem called "A Funeral Elegy." After a front-page article about his methods of computer analysis in The New York Times — and after his reputation was further burnished by unmasking Joe Klein as the author of "Primary Colors" — the poem was added to three major editions of Shakespeare's works. Now, in a stunning development that has set the world of Shakespeare...

    I'm feeling bad for Jeb Bush. I've never been a supporter of a third Bush presidency-having endured the highs and lows of the second up close-but I can't help but think about this coming Easter or Thanksgiving, or the next event when the whole Bush family is gathered around in one place. The Bushes may come across as kindly, low-key aristocrats. But have no doubt: They are ruthless competitors. When I worked for President George W. Bush, he was racing Karl Rove to see who could read the most books in a calendar year. His father used to challenge people...

    Tom Cruise has never been shy about expressing his beliefs, and in a recent deposition, the actor said he believed acting was as hard as fighting a war. Cruise sat with lawyers to be deposed for his case against Bauer Publishing for stories two of its publications printed following his divorce from Katie Holmes, articles that stated he had "abandoned" his daughter Suri. During the deposition, a lawyer questioned Cruise about remarks his camp had made equating his work and inability to see daughter Suri to fighting in Afghanistan. "That's what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie,...

    This is in some respects a political show, and we are in the throes of hands-down the most insane presidential race in history. What do you make of it, and more specifically, of the rise of Donald Trump? It seems to me that, given the relentless 24-hour news cycle, it was only a matter of time before we had a media-savvy reality star ascend to this perch. Man, I don't know! Trump leaves me speechless. When he came down that escalator to announce that he was going to run for president, I thought to myself that it was a smart...

"And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."

    And why she should listen to Killer Mike. At the the Iowa Democratic forum on Monday night, Hillary Clinton took one of the easiest questions lobbed her way -- Who is your favorite president? -- and blasted it right into the back of her own goal. She did fine with the first part, naming Abraham Lincoln, but then dipped into the history of Reconstruction, bemoaning the vengeful way in which the North targeted the South after Lincoln's assassination. You know, he was willing to reconcile and forgive. And I don't know what our country might have been like had he...

    If a liberal farmer deliberately puts a fox in his hen house in order to enforce farmyard diversity and bring about a multinatural utopia, who is guilty of killing the hens, the farmer or the fox? In the wake of the Islamic murders in Paris should we not be asking the question of just who are the murderers here, the Muslims for carrying out the commands of their prophet or the Western politicians who invited these medieval barbarians into our liberal democracies?

    To Pay For Years Of ‘Institutional Racism’ An Asian woman believes that she has suffered from “institutional racism” and as such, she feels that she shouldn’t bear the financial burden of therapy, but that white people should pay for it. An Asian woman has asked white people to pay for her therapy because she claims living with them makes her ill. Rinna Rem, from Portland, Oregon, says the stress of being Thai-Cambodian in a predominantly white city means she has to spend $100 a month on treatment. After suffering ‘institutional racism’ for most of her life, she decided to launch...

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 It seems Jennifer Lawrence’s thoughts on Donald Trump echo Katniss Everdeen’s feelings toward President Snow. For the uninitiated, that means she’s not a fan. During a lively conversation with the three leads of the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay — Part 2, the Republican presidential candidate became the topic of conversation. “If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” says Lawrence. Her co-star Liam Hemsworth feels the same: “I’ll back you up on that,” he adds. Josh Hutcherson, the third lead in the massive franchise,...
