    Because the Left dominates the news media, the entertainment media, and academia, Americans are swimming — actually, drowning — in an ocean of lies. Here are a few examples: America is racist.America oppresses its minorities.America oppresses women.Universities have a culture of rape.There are more than two genders.All cultures are morally and culturally equal.Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were caused, or made more intense, by global warming.Israel is the villain in the Middle East conflict.Western civilization is a euphemism for “white supremacy.” The latest lie of the Left is that, regarding the conflict between the NFL and President Donald Trump, the...
  • LeBron James On Why Ohio Voted For Trump: Lack Of Education

    To cleanse the palate, I think he means “education” in terms of civic education, i.e. familiarity with policy and the candidates’ backgrounds, not grade-level achieved. It’d be weird if he didn’t since James himself famously skipped college after being drafted number one out of high school. Still, how often do you get to watch a mega-star athlete call the voters of his home state ignorant? This’ll be an interesting test to see if there’s anything Ohio’s favorite son can say or do to piss off his fans. Besides committing to play for another team at the end of a...

    Merkel’s bizarre rise from East German apparatchik to CDU/CSU leader has never made any sense, and comparisons to The Manchurian Candidate are common. It’s like a duller, but even more cynical Al Gore somehow got the GOP nomination for the presidency. Diminished by the election results or not, and with the socialist SDP ruling out a coalition government, Merkel is supposed to be forming a new government with the Free Democrats and the Greens -- the AfD supposedly being too controversial to be asked to participate.
  • Trump Has ESPN Thinking They’re Actually CNN

    The Daily Caller ^ | 09/25/17 | Peter Hasson
    ESPN turned into a running political talk show on Monday that centered around one man: President Trump. Trump’s battle with the NFL over national anthem protests dominated ESPN’s morning and afternoon shows, which at times sounded more like CNN than a sports channel. ESPN’s analysts were overwhelmingly critical of the president. ESPN host Stephen A. Smith claimed during one segment that Trump’s attack on the NFL was part of a nefarious “grand scheme” from the president. “I personally believe Donald Trump has a grand scheme, I think his aspiration is to own a network when this is all said and...

    The Hill ^ | 09/26/17 | Mallory Shelbourne
    Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon reportedly said during a Monday night rally in Alabama that the Republican establishment faces a "day of reckoning." “For Mitch McConnell and Ward Baker and Karl Rove and Steven Law — all the instruments that tried to destroy Judge Moore and his family — your day of reckoning is coming,” Bannon told the crowd, according to Politico. Bannon made the remarks at a rally for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who on Tuesday faces off against Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in the GOP Senate primary runoff. Bannon was referring to...
  • BREAKING: Did Fake Mayor @CoryBooker And @SenatorMenendez Trade PAC Donations?

    Got News ^ | Sep 19, 2017 | Jack Little & staff
    Following a GotNews report that New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker received donations from fellow Democrat Bob Menendez, records suggest the two may have traded some PAC cash. FEC donation records accessed from OpenSecrets.org show in 2012, Cory Booker’s PAC gave $5,000 to the re-election effort for Menendez. Booker’s PAC gave $8,500 dollars to different Democratic Senate candidates, but Menendez received over half of it. In 2014, when Booker was up for re-election, the Menendez-affiliated PAC New Millennium gave $10,000 to Booker’s re-election bid.

    A pair of new polls on Monday showed Roy Moore beating incumbent Luther Strange by double digits in Tuesdays’s GOP senate runoff in Alabama — despite President Trump’s endorsement of the man he calls “Big Luther.” The first survey, conducted by the Trafalgar Group during the two days after Trump’s raucous rally for Strange on Friday — showed the arch-conservative leading by 16 points, 56 to 40. The second, commissioned by Cygnal, an Alabama-based research firm, was also conducted after Trump’s visit to Huntsville, showed Moore leading 52 to 41.

    Former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva was the ONLY Steeler to come out for the National Anthem on Sunday. He stood in the tunnel while the rest of the team hid in the locker room like disrespectful cowards. Villanueva stood with his hand over his heart and sang along with pride during the National Anthem. The 28-year-old former Army Ranger is a bronze star recipient and served three tours in Afghanistan. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he noticed Villanueva during a preseason game because of the way he stood during the National Anthem, according to an article in NFL.com. Imagine being...

    Good news for college men: You’re welcome again on campus. On Friday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ripped up the Obama administration’s one-sided rules on how colleges and universities handle accusations of sexual assault and misconduct. The rules, imposed in 2011, were so stacked against the accused — usually young men — that dozens of innocent male students were branded as rapists, kicked out of school and robbed of future job opportunities. Those with sufficient money and fortitude managed to get their names cleared in real courts of law — where rules of evidence, due process and reasonable standards of proof...

    Old Glory is almost certainly the most honored flag in the world. The late political scientist Samuel Huntington marveled at its place in our national life: We pledge allegiance to it. The national anthem celebrates it. An incredibly elaborate code stipulates how it’s displayed, handled and maintained. It even has its own holiday. “Since the Civil War,” Huntington wrote, “Americans have been a flag-oriented people. The Stars and Stripes has the status of a religious icon and is a more central symbol of national identity for Americans than their flags are for peoples of other nations.” The NFL players who...

    A photo of U.S. Army infantry officer and West Point graduate Spenser Rapone was making its rounds online Monday due to the fact that – while in his uniform – Rapone had the words “Communism will win” scrawled inside of his cap. In the wake of the recent NFL protests, a West Point graduate and infantry officer tweeted out the following image with the caption: “#VeteransForKaepernick” – a disgusting display from an officer. LawNewz verified the legitimacy of the photograph with Rapone himself. He is currently in the field until Friday and unable to answer detailed questions. One Twitter user...

    The Hankyoreh ^ | September 26, 2017 | Yi Yong-in, Washington correspondent
    The Trump administration has added North Korea to a list of countries subject to an anti-immigration executive order limiting or banning entry to the US. Trump announced the addition of North Korea to the travel ban list in a presidential proclamation on the evening of Sept. 24. “North Korea does not cooperate with the United States Government in any respect [in terms of information about those attempting entry] and fails to satisfy all information-sharing requirements,” the proclamation stated. In the proclamation, Trump stated the terms as applying to “immigrants and non-immigrants” - effectively banning entry to the US for all...

    The Guardian ^ | 9/25 | Lucia Graves
    Conventional wisdom says women will show solidarity at the polls. But new research shows that for white women, having a husband trumped the sisterhoodHillary Clinton hoped to wear white on election night, a tribute to the suffragettes and the sweep of political history. Instead, as she wrote in her new book, the white suit stayed in her garment bag as she donned the gray and purple garment she had intended for her first trip to Washington as president-elect. Given the opportunity to make history by electing the first female president, women didn’t take it. And ironically, the women who bore...

    The University of North Carolina, Charlotte, offers a staggering 345 courses on the topic of diversity and social justice. The University of North Carolina, Charlotte released a list of their “Diversity Courses” that spans 21 pages and covers academic disciplines such as Religious Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, and Africana Studies. Although it’s unclear why UNC Charlotte needs so many “Diversity Courses,” Associate Dean Shawn Long says that the topics discussed in such courses are beneficial to all of the members of the school’s community. “When we consider the concept of diversity, broadly speaking, we mean...

    Institutions of higher education around the country are providing students with ball pits, typically used by young children, to help relieve the stress of college. As a part of an ongoing trend, colleges and universities around the country are setting up ball pits as a means of providing their students with “emotional safety.” According to a report from The College Fix, the ball pits are used “as icebreakers, to break down racial barriers, facilitate lessons on wellness, and as part of freshmen orientation.” “The ball pits were perfect for allowing students to feel comfortable,” explained Kate Ayotte, a wellness programs...

    A Senate poll released less than 24 hours before polls open Tuesday finds that former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore still has a substantial lead over U.S. Sen. Luther Strange in the Republican primary runoff. It also indicates that President Trump's visit to Huntsville for a campaign rally for Strange did not give the president's preferred candidate a noticeable boost in the eyes of voters.

    President Trump says he doesn't know much about Roy Moore, and seemed to unwittingly emphasize the point by twice referring to the Republican front-runner for Senate in Alabama as "Ray" during a radio interview on the "Rick and Bubba Show" ahead of Tuesday's primary, per Politico. Moore is up against incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, who Trump has publicly endorsed. "Luther Strange is going to be a great senator. He loves Alabama, he loves the states and he loves the country," Trump said Monday, according to AL.com. "He will absolutely win against the Democrat. Ray will have a hard time. If...
