  • Ex-Bush Aide Has Damning Theory For Why Trump Supporters Won't Turn On Him (LOL)

    Yahoo! News ^ | October 14, 2019 | Ed Mazza, Huffington Post
    Peter Wehner said there’s a reason why many of President Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters won’t turn on him. “It is almost like a hermetically sealed world,” Wehner said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “Facts are like BBs, they’re just bouncing off of a brick wall. They just don’t penetrate.” Wehner, who served in the administrations of presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and as a senior aide in the White House of President George W. Bush, said it comes down to a concept called the psychology of accommodation. “People decided early on for a variety of reasons to accommodate...

    After ousting other leaders over anti-Semitism, the Women’s March selected another individual who had to be quickly removed when her hateful anti-Israel tweets were exposed. By United With Israel Staff Lawyer Zhara Billoo, executive director of the San Francisco Bay Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), was set to fill an empty seat on the board of the Women’s March group following the resignation of its previous leaders who faced persistent accusations of anti-Semitism. After her appointment, Billoo’s history of vehemently anti-Israel remarks, including several that many viewed as crossing the line into anti-Semitism, was revealed. She...

    George Conway, who is married to senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, said Thursday that President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office “without delay” if it turns out he pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on political rival Joe Biden. The conservative attorney, a frequent critic of the president, was referring to a report in British newspaper The Independent that Trump allegedly told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden if he wanted to improve relations with the U.S. Three House committees launched an investigation last week to determine if the president, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani...

    A wave of extremist far-right movements with chilling echoes of the Nazis is being “fueled” by Donald Trump, writes Sadiq Khan on 80th anniversary of World War II. The rise of far-right movements and leaders — fueled by President Donald Trump, the “global poster boy for white nationalism” — threatens to wipe out the lessons of World War II, London Mayor Sadiq Khan charged in a scathing essay Saturday. “An entire generation of brave men and women around the globe sacrificed everything to defeat the singular evil of Nazism and fascism,” Khan wrote in The Observer to mark the 80th...

    When Donald Trump entered the political arena, what remained of mainstream media and liberal outlets’ journalistic integrity crumbled. The most recent example came last week when a Georgetown Prep contemporary of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh sued the Huffington Post and journalist Ashley Feinberg for defamation in a Mississippi federal court.Derrick Evans sued the Huffington Post and Feinberg for a story they ran days after Christine Blasey Ford went public with her now-debunked claim that, while in high school, Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.In her September 20, 2018, article entitled, “Former Student: Brett Kavanaugh’s Prep School Party Scene Was a...

    A Mississippi man is suing HuffPost on defamation allegations because of an article the news website published last year accusing the man of helping to supply drugs to fellow students at Georgetown Preparatory School while U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a student there. Derrick Evans, a professor and community advocate, filed the lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Gulfport, Mississippi, against HuffPost and the author of the article, Ashley Feinberg, the Mississippi Clarion Ledger reported. The lawsuit claims Feinberg and HuffPost repeatedly defamed Evans and Douglas Kennedy, a classmate of Evans and Kavanaugh, by stating that they...
  • Pro-Abortion HuffPost Horrified When Lioness Kills Own Babies, Cheers When Humans Do It

    Apparently, the pro-abortion left holds animals up to a higher moral standard than human beings. On August 8th, The Huffington Post reported that two lion cubs were eaten by their mother two days after their birth in a German zoo. Reporter David Moye called the deaths “tragic.” This is ironic coming from HuffPo, which supports abortion even after the baby is born. According to Moye’s report, the Leipzig Zoo announced the deaths of the newborn cubs on its Facebook page on Tuesday. Translated from German, the post revealed that the lioness was taking good care of the cubs before she...

    WASHINGTON — After I interviewed Nancy Pelosi a few weeks ago, The HuffPost huffed that we were Dreaded Elites because we were eating chocolates and — horror of horrors — the speaker had on some good pumps. Then this week, lefty Twitter erected a digital guillotine because I had a book party for my friend Carl Hulse, The Times’s authority on Capitol Hill for decades, attended by family, journalists, Hill denizens and a smattering of lawmakers, including Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Susan Collins. I, the daughter of a D.C. cop, and Carl, the son of an Illinois plumber, were hilariously...

    For the first time since the end of World War I, the president of the United States is not the leader of the free world. When the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War on Nov. 11, 1918, Europe was in ashes after more than four years of fighting. America was newly ascendant, a leader in manufacturing, science, military power and global influence – with a home front untouched by the destruction of war. Our leading role as the most powerful and influential nation on Earth was solidified with our victory in World War II. We never...

    An avowed white supremacist was sentenced to life plus 419 years on federal hate crime charges Monday for deliberately driving his car into anti-racism protesters during a white nationalist rally in Virginia. James Alex Fields Jr., 22, received the sentence for killing one person and injuring dozens during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, 2017. Last month, Fields received a life sentence on 29 federal hate crime charge

    The threat to do away with Obamacare is once again on the rise nearly 10 years after it was passed, as a major challenge to the health care law got a sympathetic-sounding hearing in a federal appeals court this week. If the case does ultimately reach the Supreme Court, and five justices agree to strike down the Affordable Care Act, experts say it would upend the U.S. health care system and strip health insurance from an estimated 20 million people. Many millions more would lose crucial protections they might need in case of catastrophic medical issues ― including coverage for...

    Things don’t seem so joyful over at The Joy of Knitting. Elizabeth Poe, the owner of the Franklin, Tennessee shop, published a post on her store’s Facebook page earlier this week that asked customers shopping for yarn in support of the Women’s March to take their business elsewhere. “The vulgarity, vile and evilness of this movement is absolutely despicable,” Poe wrote in a post that was shared over 5,000 times and attracted more than 7,000 comments. She added, “As the owner of this business and a Christian, I have a duty to my customers and my community to promote values...
  • Inside The Dangerous Rise Of ‘Abortion Reversal’ Bills (MEGA BARF)

    Huff PO ^ | June 29, 2019 | Melissa Jeltsen
    The rise of so-called “abortion reversal” bills has alarmed leading medical groups that say such legislation forces physicians to give misleading, unscientific and potentially dangerous advice to women, undermining the trusted doctor-patient relationship. So far this year, five states ― North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arkansas — have passed legislation mandating that physicians counsel women that a medication abortion, a safe and common method for ending a pregnancy before 10 weeks, can be reversed. Similar laws are already on the books in South Dakota, Utah and Idaho. Arkansas expanded an existing law.

    Under Pelosi’s guidance, the official Democratic Party response to the Trump administration abusing immigrant children is to give more money to the agencies the Trump administration relies on to abuse immigrant children. House Democrats have lost their moral compass. On Thursday morning, a reporter asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) what her party planned to do about writer E. Jean Carroll’s recent rape allegation against President Donald Trump. Pelosi’s response was not a profile in courage. “I haven’t spent any time on that,” she said, raising her arms in frustration. “I don’t know the people you’re referencing, I don’t know...

    Yet another famous Hollywood face is pushing for gun control. “I cannot understand the people who are against some form of gun control,” insisted legendary actor Kirk Douglas on the Huffington Post yesterday. “America’s cowboy days are over,” wrote the 96-year-old Douglas. Mentioning that “some crazy fan” had given him an engraved gun, Douglas, who often played cowboys, announced unhappily that America has “become a cowboy country with too many guns.” “That frightens me,” Douglas declared. Douglas concluded by suggesting that anti-gun-control advocates are only “interested in making more money for the gun manufacturers” – or worse, “just want to...

    FULL TITLE: Dan Gainor: Media decide Trump is wrong on Iran — whether he strikes back or not. Plus, more press missteps Damned if you do. Damned if you don’t. Welcome to the media’s Iran coverage where President Donald Trump is never really right — whether he responds militarily to Iran or opts not to do so. Iran, a theocratic loony bin that is the world’s No. 1 terror state, shot down a military drone this week that was worth at least $130 million. While it was flying over international waters. What followed was a high-speed, condensed version of media...

    This week, The New York Times ran a massive piece detailing the supposed radicalization of one Caleb Cain. Cain moved from political liberalism toward self-ascribed “tradcon” status from watching YouTube videos. The New York Times charted this nefarious move by following those videos. The suggestion by the Times was simple: If you watch typical conservative content hosted by people like me, you will eventually end up watching material hosted by alt-right figures. The only solution, presumably, would be for YouTube to downgrade material the Times dislikes. This attitude isn’t only springing from the Times. Axios chief technology correspondent Ina Fried...

    **SNIP** Biden “has not at this point changed his position on the Hyde Amendment,” his campaign told HuffPost, and contended that “the Hyde Amendment does not prevent organizations in the U.S. that provide lifesaving health care services for women from receiving the federal funding they need.” Because the provision bans Medicaid, Medicare and other federal health insurance programs from covering the vast majority of abortions, low-income women and women of color are disproportionately affected by it. Democrats and other 2020 candidates quickly slammed Biden for standing by such a policy. “It’s been the law for a while, and it’s been...

    On December 14, 2012, Shannon Watts was folding laundry in front of the television when she heard the news: Twenty little children had been shot to death inside their elementary school in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. Watts, a stay-at-home mother of five, began to cry. But as she continued watching coverage of the tragedy, her emotions flipped from desolate to furious. The prevailing attitude, aired by resigned pundits, was that shootings were inevitable. The next day, she decided to act. Envisioning a group of moms working against gun violence, in the vein of Moms Against Drunk Driving, she created a Facebook...
