    The Trump’s first State Dinner was held in the State Dining Room, where such affairs were intended to be held, rather than the circus tent constructed on the south lawn for many of the Obama era state dinners.Trump’s State Dinner for France, Obama’s State Circus for India And the table setting was boringly classic, left, unlike the Obama’s state dinner for Italy, right which was contemporary pink and green. Of course you don’t need to erect a tent if you don’t invite half of Hollywood and all of the supportive press corps to break bread with you like they did...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – President and First Lady Melania Trump hosted their first formal state dinner in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron last night, and it was by all accounts a rousing success. Even better, not one single, solitary Washington, DC-based Democrat was invited to attend, a fact that the fake reporters and fake anchors at CNN whined about endlessly. The lone Democrat in attendance was the execrable Governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, I guess because of that whole Louisiana Purchase thing. Governor Edwards, a trial lawyer...

    Facebook Deputy Chief Privacy Officer Rob Sherman boasted that his firm “will force users to accept being tracked everywhere they go. That’s just the way it is. This decision was not made in the interest of the users of Facebook, but explicitly to ensure maximum profits for the company. Our business model is based on inducing our users to freely provide us detailed personal information, which we then sell to the highest bidders. It’s a virtual license to print money. Why should we stop?” Sherman dismissed the possibility that customers would be turned off by FaceBook’s pervasive invasion of privacy....

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Ok, lessee here, busy day yesterday…. Law enforcement officials caught the naked Waffle House shooter, and fortunately he had his pants on when they took him into custody. What a strange, odd story that one is. Another royal baby was born in London, and once again I can only marvel at how many Americans actually give a damn. I don’t. Poppy Bush is in the ICU at Houston Methodist hospital with a blood infection, just a few days after his wife Barbara was laid to rest. One can only imagine the stress...

    Now that the second largest county in California has joined a growing list of cities opposing the state’s sanctuary policies, an irate Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has vowed “to take vengeance on these lowlifes.” The spark provoking this promise came when the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to direct the county attorney to file a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the Trump Administration’s lawsuit against the state’s attempt to flout federal immigration laws. “If these people thought they’ve had it tough before paying for the medical, education, and welfare needs of our undocumented immigrants, I want them to know that...

    I hate to link to the New York Times, but Amy Chozick’s essay adapted from her upcoming book “Chasing Hillary” does reveal  some truths about the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign.Apparently there really was some media bias!I know this is hardly news but it’s fun to see it exposed and this way you won’t have to buy the book. But if you refuse under any circumstances to click on the NYT you can read some of the highlights at ACE including some feel good moments like this: Mook eventually delivers the news of impending defeat to Clinton.

    So, here’s how our fake national news media justifies what it does: - Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that the Obama Administration’s fake “counterintelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign was started in early 2016 “with no official intelligence” as its basis. - Other than Fox and a handful of conservative news outlets, no media outlet has reported this incredible, bombshell news, which means that the investigation was illegal from the outset. - The fake news media outlets refusing to cover this story claim that it’s all Nunes’ fault, because...

    Fired for “lack of candor,” former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is set to sue the Trump administration for “wrongful termination.” Michael Bromwich, McCabe’s lawyer, cited former FBI Director James Comey’s book—A Hired Loyalty—as confirmation that “my client getting fired for lying contradicts the Agency’s ethical standards so clearly laid out by Mr. Comey.” In his book and interviews since its publication, Comey has admitted “lying when circumstances require it. Everyone in the DOJ has lied when necessary to nail a criminal for which we lacked the evidence to prosecute or to protect confidential sources. Take current Special Counsel Bob...

    Newt Gingrich came right out and said what a lot of people think: James Comey - former U.S. attorney, deputy attorney general, corporate attorney, hedge-funder and FBI director - wrote a self-serving book filled with lies and half truths and may well be a “pathological liar.” “I’m saying he taught himself a early age a series of self-serving emotions, which he uses … if you watch him for a couple of hours of this stuff, he uses it over and over,” Gingrich concluded. “This guy is almost a pathological liar.” Daily Caller Worth a view: Pathological liars may lie to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Today is Earth Day, and it is the perfect time to celebrate the natural resources like oil, natural gas and coal, which are gifts to humanity from Mother Earth herself. These indispensable drivers of modern society will no doubt be demonized today amid all the frightful doom and gloom predictions that will be launched by environmental activists and repeated by various media outlets. All the vitriol directed at these fossil fuels by the environmental community notwithstanding, it is a simple fact that our prosperous, modern, energy-hungry society was made possible by the...

    Nervous that left-wing loon and former "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon will oust him in the Democratic primary this coming September, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to convince voters that he is all things to all people. In saner eras, the standard Democratic ploy was to promise an array of government-funded goodies to constituents. Now, though, Cuomo seems determined to persuade the gullible that he is "a Muslim, a Jew, a gay, a woman, a transgender, a criminal, an undocumented immigrant—I am every person, except a straight white male, and am the most perfect candidate to represent this...

    Note to Barack Hussein Obama: This is what ‘smart diplomacy’ looks like: ‘How could a dangerous idiot like Donald Trump get little Kimmie to drop his guns when the brilliant Barry Obama (with his secret diplomatic weapon, Dennis Rodman) was unable to do so? Could it be PDJT, using America’s strength as a trade partner, got…(Gasp!) China to exert force on our behalf? CNN certainly didn’t seem to think so earlier this month: (CNN) A surprise visit by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to China may indicate Pyongyang's need for support from its closest ally ahead of upcoming summits...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, let’s do that with Obamacare, too! – Chuckie Schumer announced on Friday that he’s introducing a bill that would essentially rescind federal marijuana laws because, he claims, he is such a huge believer in the concept of federalism that he thinks we should just let the states decide on whether pot should be legal or not. This marks the first issue in his long political career on which the old collectivist expressed a fealty to federalism. Talking Points Parrot for Senate! – Just minutes after Schumer had held his press conference,...

    Unsatisfied with the lack of results from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's year-long investigation of Trump-Russia collusion to steal the 2016 presidential election from Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit demanding billions of dollars in damages and a "rectification" of the election results. In addition to Trump, the suit also named Russia and Wikileaks as co-conspirators in what DNC Chairman Tom Perez called "an act of unimaginable treachery." While not part of the suit, per se, Perez expressed "our profound disappointment with the actions of our government. We counted on them to prevent the election of Trump as...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) About that DNC lawsuit…don’t expect anything to really come of it. In fact, you should expect it to occupy most of the fake news media attention over this weekend, quickly fade from view starting on Monday, and be withdrawn entirely within a few weeks. The DNC did not make a legal move today by filing that lawsuit, it made a political move. Democrats were getting crushed by the back-firing of the James Comey teen angst tour, the IG’s criminal referral on Andrew McCabe, and the news that the IG had opened...

    People wonder why Melania has been shunned by magazine editors around the world. It is curious, it would seem she is a natural having graced covers for most of her life. And in Michelle Obama-ese, she can “totally rock” a shirtwaist like nobody. But alas, we are experiencing the effects of PTSD (President Trump Stress Disorder) by-proxy syndrome. Hatin’ on Trump is not enough, the vitriol must be transferred to everything and anything associated with the President. And in Liberal-Land that includes the President’s wife and children - unless of course the President is a Democrat and then such behavior...

    If James Comey thought liberals would treat him as their homey on the heels of his book publication and tour, he is sadly mistaken. Since Comey offered not a shred of any kind of evidence that could lead to the removal of President Donald Trump from office, the left has receded back to the position they had at the instant before he was fired. Namely they hate Comey and continue to blame him for the election of Trump. This attitude is now held by both the DUmmies and the KOmmies. The fact that Comey acts so sanctimonious at all times...
