She expects you to believe her lies too. She can’t imagine any sane person not believing those lies. Such is the...

    Time and again the American left—led by the mainstream media, Hollywood elite, and the Democrat Party—lectures us about the ignorance of conservatives, Christians, and anyone else who isn’t devoted to a “progressive” (amazing how regressive is “progressivism”) worldview. With their talk shows, columns, commercials, movies, sitcoms, roundtables, protests, Facebook posts, tweets, and the like, liberals unashamedly, repeatedly, and without hesitation (and often without much thought) denigrate those with whom they disagree. Yet, time and again, as they preach their philosophy and live out their “faith,” it is liberals who are stubbornly hindered by the facts of science and morality. Examples...

    The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's acceptance of the invitation to sing at Donald Trump's inauguration has spawned widespread debate among the faithful and thousands of signatures on a petition demanding the decision's reversal. Now the choir's participation has even more fallout: the resignation of a female singer. "Since 'the announcement,' I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony. I have reflected carefully on both sides of the issue, prayed a lot, talked with family and friends, and searched my soul," Jan Chamberlin wrote in a resignation letter to the choir president and choir members.

Chappelle glares at him, dumbfounded. “Word?” he says. “You ever been around this country before?” The gag of course is the fact that, as a black man, Chappelle has seen the country at its ugliest, its least...

Justin R. Barkley, 38, said during his arraignment and subsequent attempt to plead guilty, "I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly." Now obviously Barkley is out of his mind. But the murder of an innocent man is another example of how the media's climate of hate can backfire. Did the media's paranoid fantasies about Trump feed into Barkley's...

    This is what we have been up against. From Alinsksy, "“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that...

The legislation is intended to protect gay and transgender people younger than 18 and was a response to the election of Republican Donald Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as president and vice president, said council President Bruce Kraus, a South Side Democrat. Kraus, who is gay, called conversion therapy “a form of soul murder.” “I think it's obvious if anyone has followed national news there's clearly been a change...

I found the video entertaining anyway, even though he buys the media spin about Donald Trump hook, line, and sinker. https://www.facebook.com/viralthread/videos/598130190359668/

    Shocking footage out of California shows a high school girl being viciously beaten by another student for saying she supported Donald Trump on Instagram, the latest example of an anti-Trump hate crime wave sweeping the country. “Jade says the girl hit her, threw her to the ground and pulled at her earrings and hair. She was left with a bloody nose, scratches and bruises,” reports Mercury News. The school said the girl responsible for the attack would be disciplined but failed to reveal whether she would be expelled for the brutal assault.

    Americans unhappy with the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States searched Google on Wednesday for guidance on how to impeach a president while a law professor indicated there may already be enough evidence to justify impeaching Trump for fraud and racketeering. Democrat Hillary Clinton called on her supporters to come together and help heal the divisions that erupted during the presidential campaign, saying now is the time to unite. Metro reported searches for “how to impeach a president” increased 4,850 percent just hours after Clinton conceded. Google Trends data indicated the top five states...

    The 2016 presidential election season has been one most of us will never forget. The tone has been ugly, the controversies endless, the coverage unrelenting. Our social media feeds are full of politically charged statements, and what dialogue does exist between differing sides more often resembles a WWE match than nuanced debate. Thankfully, I get to write about ESPN, where the focus on sports means I never have to deal with politics. Ah, if only that were true.

    ESPN is doing a very bad job of pretending it isn’t deathly afraid of rapidly declining subscriber numbers. At the end of October, Nielsen released its monthly television subscriber numbers report, and it showed a loss of 621,000 subscribers for ESPN and similar losses for ESPN2 and ESPNU. ......... In 2013, ESPN had over 99 million subscribers. Today, it has just under 89 million............ But this year they will miss out on somewhere around $800 million in revenue they would’ve otherwise earned if they still had 2013's subscriber numbers.
