    Fox News ^ | December 1, 2016
    President-elect Donald Trump is intent on repealing Obamacare, but nearly half of Americans say they arenít so keen on dismantling the health care reform law. Some 49% of Americans want Trump and Congress to either expand Obamacare or continue implementing the law as it is, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Thursday. Another 26% want the entire law repealed, while 17% would like the law scaled back. Trump and GOP Congressional leaders have said they plan to take up Obamacareís repeal as soon the incoming president takes office on January 20. They are looking at repealing the law...

    Look at the media (in this case the leftist Washington Post) crying like little babies over supposed conspiracy theories: '@FiIibuster -- that's lowercase i-capital i-lowercase i -- is the luckiest 16-year-old in California. On Monday night, he took a break from tweeting about professional sports to piggyback on the president-elect's critiques of CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny. "CNN is terrible folks," he wrote. "Jeff has no evidence that Donald Trump didn't suffer from voter fraud!" Lo and behold, Trump retweeted him, adding at the end, "Bad reporter." To which @FiIibuster could only reply, "OMG." I tell this story not to walk...

    Fidel Castro jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin during the Great Terror.

Fidel Castro shattered ‚ÄĒ through mass-executions, mass-jailings, mass larceny and exile ‚ÄĒ virtually every family on the island of Cuba.

    In 1991, reports surfaced on Bill Clinton's troubling reputation in Arkansas. There were many eyewitness reports from Arkansas State Troopers of Clinton's bad behavior with women. Some of these troopers were interviewed on radio. The mainstream media spiked these reports which were highly credible. There were two programs on shortwave radio, however, which carried these interviews: Radio Free America, and For the People (Tom Balentine) The shortwave radio station was WWCR.

In his first debate on Monday against Hillary Clinton, Trump boasted that he had valiantly stayed away from the topic despite an inner dialogue with himself about whether to bring up the Clintons' marital woes. Before the debate, he had floated inviting Gennifer Flowers, who allegedly had an affair with the former president in the 1970s,...

    The recent media frenzy surrounding Clinton and Trump's health records has accomplished little more than to, once again, expose a "press" that is becoming increasingly partisan with each passing day. Right-leaning media outlets have spent countless hours reporting on the various health issues experienced by Clinton over the years and pointing to pictures of her falling down on the campaign trail or seemingly zoning out at times as evidence of her frailty. Meanwhile the left-leaning organizations have mostly dismissed the Hillary health concerns as conspiracy theories of right-wing nut jobs. Like this tweet from a New York Times columnist calling...

Trump is such a threat that the Times feels morally obligated to destroy him, even if its staff have to violate traditional journalistic ethics requiring facts and fairness. Editor Jim Rutenberg wrote in a major front-page article last week: "If you view a Trump presidency as something that's potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you've ever been to being oppositional." And that's admirable. A headline in a major Los Angeles paper sums up...

    Sarah Palin is hardly alone in her sense of some threat to the hegemony of English in the United States. You know the drill -- Jeb Bush answers a question in comfortable Spanish, and Palin, after some perfunctory compliments that Bush's conversational Spanish will be good for connecting to Latinos, gets in that here in the United States we need to "speak American." The problem with this kind of rhetoric is that it corresponds to no crisis. There hasn't been any documented tendency for native-born Americans to be uncomfortable in English. Those born here to non-English speaking parents speak their...

    The mainstream media is descending on The Donald like buzzards on carrionóand their instincts for a fresh kill are rarely wrong.† But donít discount Donald Trump. Erick Erickson offered sage advice for the tempestuous-tempered billionaire-cum-politician to stay on offense, but I expect that Trump will rebound very soon. The ďstay on offenseĒ advice works best for politicians, but Donald Trump isnít one.† Heís a unique personality that cuts through American culture like a chainsawórough, noisy, and with lots of flying pieces. Trumpís at his best when heís talking, and fortunately for him, itís probably his favorite pastime, other than writing...

    The demise of big city print media, displayed in full by the painfully slow sale of the mammoth New York Daily News, is going nationwide as ad sales decline 50 percent and circulation plummets, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis According to their report, "The Declining Value Of U.S. Newspapers," just three different media companies in 2014 alone decided to dump more than 100 newspaper properties. Pew said the companies spun off the money-losing properties "in large part to protect their still-robust broadcast or digital divisions."

    Has there ever been a hypothetical question asked without malice aforethought? Bradford is overwhelmed with the gravitas of the hypothetical question posed to him.If the question comes from a lawyer or journalist the answer is no. Just ask Michael Dukakis or Mitt Romney if you donít believe me.So as Big Guyís foreign affairs strategery continues to implode experience some setbacks, the journo-class has been having a field day asking Republican candidates, and presumed candidates, the hypothetical question of the week:† "Knowing what you know now, would you have authorized the invasion (of Iraq)?"

    MSNBC might like to replace "Lean Forward" with a new slogan: "Dissent Is Unpatriotic." On today's Morning Joe, discussing the Rudy flap, Mika Brzezinski said: "I question the patriotism of someone who questions the president's patriotism." Joe Scarborough retorted that for years on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann got away with saying much worse about W without criticism from Mika or others in the MSM. View the video here.

    KING, Wis. ó At the old union hall here on a recent afternoon, Terry Magnant sat at the head of a table surrounded by 18 empty chairs. A members meeting had been scheduled to start a half-hour earlier, but the small house, with its cracked walls and loose roof shingles, was lonely and desolate. ďThere used to be a lot more people coming,Ē said Magnant, a 51-year-old nursing assistant, sighing. The anti-union law passed here four years ago, which made Gov. Scott Walker a national Republican star and a possible presidential candidate, has turned out to be even more transformative...
