  • Republican Leaders Might Actually Be Utterly Incompetent

    It appears that GOP leaders might actually be completely unfit to be calling the shots in Washington. Everyone in America knows that the Republican Party has control of the White House, the Senate, and House of Representatives, yet there is still serious talk about an impending government shutdown. Earlier today, President Trump tweeted that America needed a “good shutdown” to fix the ailments in Washington. The people of this nation are considerably frustrated by the gridlock and inability of Republicans to make progress with matters like healthcare, the spending bill, tax reform, etc. Placing the blame on Democrats won’t work...
  • Beyond the Kruger-Dunning Effect (Erdogan's Turkey or Obama's US? EXPLAINED)

    The Kruger-Dunning effect refers to the inability of incompetent individuals to accurately assess their own competence. It was first discovered by two psychologists, you can guess their names, who asked students to predict their exam scores before taking the exam. Whilst students gaining high marks accurately predicted their scores, low scoring students grossly overestimated how well they would perform. The phenomenon, replicated many times, is usually explained in terms of metacognitive abilities. Since these skills are critical for both gaining and assessing competence, people with low levels of metacognitive ability are doubly cursed. The Kruger Dunning effect is surprisingly resistant...

    Just a day after Chris Ruddy, Newsmax Media CEO, joined President Trump for a drink (Trump had a diet Coke, Ruddy had a scotch), the long-time friend appeared Sunday on CNN's Reliable Sources and unprompted, launched into an attack on the President's chief of staff, Reince Priebus, describing him as weak and incompetent.   Drinks two days ago...   Is Priebus on the out? And will Steve Bannon now become de facto Chief of Staff?

    Donald Trump is standing by his charge that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the “co-founders” of ISIS. “In many respects, you know, they honor President Obama,” Trump said at a Florida rally on August 10th. “He’s the founder of ISIS. I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”

The FBI conducted an investigation into allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure."

    Donald Trump’s campaign released a new web ad mocking his rival Hillary Clinton for asking why she isn’t 50 points ahead. The ad is titled, “Do You Really Need to Ask?” “Hillary Clinton is becoming more and more frustrated with how out of touch she is with the American people,” Trump’s senior communications advisor Jason Miller stated in a campaign press release announcing the web ad. Miller continued: ... Expect to see more aggressive outbursts from the Clinton camp as she realizes her email scandal, horrific record and disdain for the American people block her from being coronated as she...

    You just can’t make this up… The Smoking Gun reported: The FBI’s Hillary Clinton investigation turned up evidence that her e-mail accounts were targeted in multiple “spear phishing” attacks, one of which may have tricked the then-Secretary of State into clicking a malicious link included in the correspondence. An FBI investigative report released today includes a section on the “cyber targeting” of Clinton’s “personal E-mail and Associated Accounts” during her tenure at the State Department. Though riddled with redactions, the FBI report reveals that Clinton became concerned about the legitimacy of an e-mail purportedly sent to her “from the personal...

Appearing on Fox News’s “Your World” with guest host Trish Regan on Thursday, Teigen responded the the Washington Post editorial that argued that the Americans who died in the Benghazi attack could have been saved.

    John Dingell turns 90 today, meaning he's spent barely over one-third of his life not representing Southeast Michigan in Congress. With 59 years of service, Dingell remains the longest-serving congressman in the history of the United States. His wife, Debbie, succeeded him as the representative from Michigan's 12th Congressional District when he retired in 2014. Dingell is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and in recent years has developed a cult following on Twitter -- not exactly a hotbed of octogenarian politicians. In honor of Dingell's birthday, greetings are pouring in from around the country. Among the more...

    Popular myth-busting website Snopes originally gained recognition for being the go-to site for disproving outlandish urban legends -such as the presence of UFOs in Haiti or the existence of human-animal hybrids in the Amazon jungle. Recently, however, the site has tried to pose as a political fact-checker. But Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and it’s political “fact-checker” describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans “regressive” and afraid of “female agency.” Snopes’ main political fact-checker is a writer named Kim Lacapria. Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog...

    Donald Trump is looking to November by taking a swipe at President Barack Obama. During a campaign rally, the GOP frontrunner called Obama “incompetent” for the way he handled the negotiations over whether the Olympics would take place in the U.S.: Remember when the president flew to Europe to make a pitch. Now, this is the President of the United States. He made a pitch for the Olympics to come to the United States and I think that’s great. I like it. But if you’re the president, you don’t go over there make a pitch and then not win, right?...

    Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Vice Chairman Charles Munger criticized leading candidates from both major U.S. political parties. At a meeting with investors of his Daily Journal Corp. in Los Angeles Wednesday, Munger, 92, was asked whether a person who couldn’t make money in the gaming industry would be a good fit for the top office in the U.S. “Well, he did make money for quite a while,” Munger said of Republican Donald Trump. “My attitude is that anybody who makes money running a casino is not morally qualified.”

    After giving a speech focusing in part on the erosion of trust between citizens and the police, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch thanked the prosecutor in the Michael Brown case for saying police officers in Missouri are "substandard," "lazy" and "incompetent." “You talked earlier about the support of varied and various departments," said Robert McCulloch, prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County, Missouri. "What I'd like to suggest, though, is that in my jurisdiction we have a number of departments that are substandard... and they tend to get substandard officers and they're paying them minimum wage in some cases - or...

    No other nation in the world values hard work and service as much as the United States and no other citizenry reaps the reward of their hard work like Americans. I grew up on a small family dairy farm in Holton, Kansas, and the work ethic I learned there led me to college, to become a Certified Public Accountant and to an eventual successful run for Congress. Fortunate to live the American dream, I'm not the only public leader who overcame some obstacles to succeed: from a secretary to CEO of a Fortune 20 company, Carly Fiorina's journey is only...

    The media are jackals. The feds are incompetent. We’re completely screwed. That’s the only message we can take from the media’s three-hour tour of the San Bernardino terrorists’ apartment. On Friday, at media request, the landlord of the apartment pried off a board covering the door with a crowbar, and the media, in all of their vulpine glory, rushed forward to feast on material evidence in a terrorism investigation.

    President Obama may be going through a minor mid-life crisis, as he's made numerous references to his graying hair over the last few weeks, even at major events with world leaders at the White House. But while Obama has spoken wistfully about the darker hair of his youth, he has also argued that his graying hair is a sign of the experience he's gained as the leader of the free world for the last seven years. Just two days ago, Obama, 54, met with French President Francois Hollande at the White House to discuss joint counterterrorism efforts after the attack...

    "What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be." ___ President Barack Obama said during a press conference on Tuesday that his plans to attend a climate change summit in December will serve as a “powerful rebuke” to ISIS, which took credit for brutal terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people and injured hundreds more. While standing alongside French president François Hollande in a joint news conference at the White House, Obama explained that his attendance at next month’s World Climate Summit will put ISIS in its place. “Next week I will be joining President Hollande and other...

    President Obama is again excoriating Republicans for raising concerns about Syrian refugees setting in America after the terrorist attacks in Paris. In a press conference in the Philippines on Tuesday, he continued the anti-Republican narrative he set on Monday by mocking Republicans for talking tough, but running scared from widows and orphans. “First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans,” he said. “That doesn’t sound very tough to me.” Obama appeared personally disturbed by political conversation going on back in the United States, condemning Republicans for contributing to...

    In any time and place, war is fiendishly simple. It is the ultimate zero-sum contest — you win or you lose. That eternal truth is so obvious that it should not need to be said. Yet even after the horrific slaughter in Paris, there remains a distressing doubt about whether America’s commander in chief gets it. President Obama has spent the last seven years trying to avoid the world as it is. He has put his intellect and rhetorical skills into the dishonorable service of assigning blame and fudging failure. If nuances were bombs, Islamic State would have been destroyed...
