    Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taught their daughter, Blue Ivy, the importance of investing in art. On Saturday night, the 6-year-old made several bids on art while sitting between her mega-star parents at the Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles. The second annual event, put on by Tina Knowles and husband Richard Lawson, benefits the WACO Theater Center. During the swanky event, little Blue Ivy, who was wearing a matching gold dress like her mother, bid $17,000 on an acyclic painting of Sidney Poitier, reports Vanity Fair. Excited to make another bid, she lifted her paddle again raising the bar to...
  • Bipartisan lawmakers defend Mueller amid Trump’s attacks on probe

    03/18/2018 10:25:15 AM PDT · by conservative98 · 33 replies
    WASHINGTON – Bipartisan lawmakers sounded the alarm Sunday about President Trump’s mounting attacks on the Russia probe and issued a strong defense for special counsel Robert Mueller. “If the president reaches out and stops this investigation, that is a constitutional crisis in this country,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” Trump’s lawyer John Dowd Saturday called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to end the Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign. Trump followed up over the weekend by attacking Mueller by name on Twitter and questioning the...

    Chipper Jones will be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, but he’s not keeping his public statements to just baseball. The former Atlanta Braves third baseman and avid hunter shared his thoughts on gun control with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday and it won’t surprise you to find out that he has some strong opinions — but not the one you might think.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! Down goes McCabe! – Sweaty swamp snake Andrew McCabe got his formal walking papers from Attorney General Jeff Sessions last night, one day before he turns 50 and his lucrative federal pension was about to kick in. Despite the buttoned-down bureaucratic nature of the decision, based as it was on an Inspector General investigation and a firing recommendation from the DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility, the fake news media went into full fakery mode, declaring that this firing of a single well-documented bad actor means that...
  • Why Gun Culture Is So Strong in Rural America

    KNOXVILLE, Iowa — As Democrats have fled rural America — or rural America has fled Democrats — many of them, living in cities, are left without an understanding of rural culture and its core values. If it isn’t on abortion, our deepest cultural divide might be on guns. The guns issue also has a profound political dimension, reliably driving rural Americans into Republican arms. It’s been many years since I hunted squirrels and rabbits with my Grandpa Leonard. I grew up around guns and remember the pride I had when I completed my N.R.A.-sponsored gun safety training in Boy Scouts,...

    Expect An ‘After Easter’ Bombshell Announcement From Speaker Ryan Editor’s Note: Story just hit the wires a few minutes after midnight. By Myra Adams, Townhall Mark your calendars! As if there isn’t enough daily drama swirling around Washington, in early or mid-April there is likely to be an announcement that will titillate the nation’s capital. According to a frontline GOP strategist (name asked to be withheld) “after Easter” is when House Speaker Paul Ryan will announce his decision whether or not to run for reelection in Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district. Speaker Ryan, age 48, has represented his home district since...

    Matt Damon is moving his family to Australia — in part because the liberal star’s fed up with President Trump. Damon, 47, reportedly has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales, according to Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph. The home’s next door to a place owned by Chris Hemsworth — with whom Damon recently appeared in “Thor: Ragnarok.” A source exclusively tells Page Six: “Matt’s telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia” because the activist actor disagrees with Trump’s policies. The president’s frequently butted heads with liberal Hollywood A-listers including Meryl Streep. The source...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Warning: If Everything is Sexist, Nothing is Sexist. – House Democrat Caucus leader Joe Crowley told reporters on Thursday that efforts by Republican congressional candidates to tie their Democrat challengers to House Sepaker San Fran Nan are “sexist.” Crowley did not offer any explanation as to why Republicans criticizing the obviously incompetent, disgraceful Pelosi is sexist, but Democrat efforts to demonize every Republican woman on the face of the earth is not, and of course none of the fake journalists present would have dared to pose one of their Democrat heroes a...

    Rand Paul launched a typically obnoxious attack on Gina Haspel today. Here is one account: “To really appoint the head cheerleader for waterboarding to be head of the CIA? How can you trust somebody who did that to be in charge of the CIA,” Paul wondered, adding, “To read of her glee during the waterboarding is just absolutely appalling.” Paul was referring to an account of a waterboarding session with suspected al Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubaydah, who was subjected to so-called enhanced interrogation techniques now widely considered to be torture. ., . The problem is that this conduct appears to...

    Donald Trump has sacked his national security advisor H.R. McMaster just days after ousting his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, as his purge of White House staff continues, it has been reported. Five people with knowledge of the plan have stated that Mr Trump is eyeing up several replacements for Mr McMaster that include former US ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton and the Chief of Staff for the National Security Council, Keith Kellogg. The dismissal of Mr McMaster has not been officially confirmed.

    President Trump has decided to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser and is actively discussing potential replacements, according to five people with knowledge of the plans, preparing to deliver yet another jolt to the senior ranks of his administration. Trump is now comfortable with ousting McMaster, with whom he never personally gelled, but is willing to take time executing the move because he wants to ensure both that the three-star Army general is not humiliated and that there is a strong successor lined up, these people said. The turbulence is part of a broader potential shake-up under consideration...

    As Republicans face a potential Democratic wave in this year's midterm elections, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake argued Thursday that his party "might not deserve to lead" given its support for President Donald Trump. "If we are going to cloister ourselves in the alternative truth of an erratic leader, if we are going to refuse to live in a world that everyone else lives in ... then my party might not deserve to lead," the Arizona senator said in a speech at the National Press Club.

    CNN is pushing a story that compares ICE to Nazis, citing a Jewish woman who believes that deporting illegal immigrants is similar to actions the Nazis took during the Holocaust. In a tweet on Thursday, CNN wrote, “A Jewish woman heard an undocumented immigrant and her two daughters were on the run from ICE. Driven by thoughts of the Holocaust, she risked her own comfort to offer them shelter.” @CNN A Jewish woman heard an undocumented immigrant and her two daughters were on the run from ICE.

    Republicans are citing numerous problems at polling sites in Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania, which remains too close to officially call but appears to be trending toward an extremely narrow victory for Democrat Conor Lamb. [Snip] Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in the district that went for Lamb, according to the source, who said there have been many reports of voters who intended to vote for Saccone ending up casting a ballot for Lamb. Furthermore, Republicans say their attorneys were ejected from polling sites as the absentee ballots were...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Spoiled high school children across the country skipped class on Wednesday to go pretend to know something about guns and gun control policy. It was, like, totally rad, and of course Democrat politicians around the country exploited the kids’ acting out to make political points. San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the execrable New York Governor Andrew Cuomo all made anti-gun speeches to groups of students while surrounded by security guards armed with…wait for it…you know what’s coming…guns! None of the kids noticed the irony in that, mainly because pretty much none...
  • No one would accept, in any other national discussion, the level of ignorance seen in the gun debate

    03/14/2018 1:43:35 PM PDT · by rktman · 27 replies ^ | 3/9/2018 | Becket Adams
    There are two certainties following nearly every mass shooting event: Cable news television will have its programming schedule set for the next 72 hours, and a significant number of gun control advocates will reveal they lack even a basic understanding of the items they wish to regulate. The first certainty is to be expected. After all, if it bleeds it leads. The second certainty is more remarkable. It’s remarkable that so many proponents of stricter regulations appear to be generally ignorant of not just the minutiae of firearms, but also the basics. It’s also remarkable that this ignorance continues unabated,...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 3-13-2018 | Adam Kredo
    The abrupt firing Tuesday of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson follows months of infighting between the State Department and White House over efforts by Tillerson to save the Iran nuclear deal and ignore President Donald Trump's demands that the agreement be fixed or completely scrapped by the United States, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. In the weeks leading up to Tillerson's departure, he had been spearheading efforts to convince European allies to agree to a range of fixes to the nuclear deal that would address Iran's ongoing ballistic missile...
  • Why It Doesn't Matter Who the Winner Is in PA-18

    03/14/2018 6:27:30 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 67 replies
    As of this writing, Democrat Conor Lamb is clinging to a lead of roughly 600 votes in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. There are probably not enough uncounted votes out there for Republican Rick Saccone to pull out the win. It also really doesn’t matter much, one way or the other (unless you are a Democrat living in the 18th who feels strongly about having a Democrat represent you in Washington). Here’s why: The House is increasingly polarized. There was a time that a narrowed House majority for a party would make for interesting politics in Washington,...
