    A former congressional aide Friday accused Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., of sexually harassing her and claimed she was fired and blackballed from further work on Capitol Hill when she refused his advances. Reese Everson, a former Congressional Black Caucus Fellow, alleged that Scott touched her leg and body without permission and promised to advance her career if she let him flirt with her. Everson

    Los Angeles, California, 5 December “You got a choice to make, man. You could go straight on to heaven. Or you could turn right, into that.” We are in Los Angeles, in the heart of one of America’s wealthiest cities, and General Dogon, dressed in black, is our tour guide. Alongside him strolls another tall man, grey-haired and sprucely decked out in jeans and suit jacket. Professor Philip Alston is an Australian academic with a formal title: UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights. General Dogon, himself a veteran of these Skid Row streets, strides along, stepping over...

    President Trump modified his standard attack on traveling reporters Friday, and declared that nearly a third of journalists covering his speech were “fine people.” “Look, there’s fake news back there look, fake news,” Trump said at a graduation for the FBI National Academy in Virginia. “No, actually, some of them are fine people,” he said. “About, let's see who's back there? Yeah, about 30 percent.”

    NYT: Obama Only Lied 18 Times in 8 Years; Trump Off the Charts Quick, somebody do a chart on NYT’s lies. 12.14.2017 News Trey Sanchez    The New York Times, which promised to do a better job at unbiased reporting after the election, actually reported with a straight face that President Obama only lied 18 times in his entire presidency. Take a second to recover from laughter (or outrage). David Leonhardt, Ian Prasad Philbrick, and Stuart A. Thompson considered it a challenge when they heard from Trump supporters who after reading the NYT's list of lies of President Trump said: “Yes,...

    The slow-rolling coup d’etat led by Robert Mueller continued its unraveling on Thursday, as Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) released documents showing that the statement given by former FBI Director James Comey in July 2016, which “exonerated” Princess Pantsuit of wrongdoing in her blatantly illegal emailing activities was heavily edited. More to the point, it was heavily edited and watered down during early May, two full months before Comey had even bothered to interview the Coughing Crook or about a dozen other key witnesses in the case...

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax codeÂ’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...

    After we published a list of President Trump’s lies this summer, we heard a common response from his supporters. They said, in effect: Yes, but if you made a similar list for previous presidents, it would be just as bad. We’ve set out to make that list. Here, you will find our attempt at a comprehensive catalog of the falsehoods that Barack Obama told while he was president. (We also discuss George W. Bush below, although the lack of real-time fact-checking during his presidency made a comprehensive list impossible.) We applied the same conservative standard to Obama and Trump, counting...

But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.</p>

    On last Friday’s edition of the Glenn Beck’s radio program, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly doubled down on claims about the existence of an audio recording of an anti-Trump individual offering “$200,000 to file sexual harassment charges against then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.” "Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is predicting a huge onslaught against President Trump in January based around fake accusations of sexual assault as Democrats panic that Trump’s chances of re-election are surging. Warning, “There’s going to be a tremendous assault on President Trump” beginning in January, O’Reilly says Democrats now feel they must go all...

    Speaking of Sarah Sanders and fake reporters, the fakest White House Reporter of all, CNN’s Little Jimmy Acosta, hilariously accused Ms. Sanders of being a mean ol’ bully to him on Tuesday. When the President came out to make a statement to a limited number of White House reporters at what is called a “pool spray” (wonder if April Ryan thinks that’s some sort of sexual reference, too), Little Jimmy claims Sanders came to him beforehand and warned him that his access to future such “sprays” would be limited if, as is his grandstanding habit, he shouted out a question...

    Late on Monday, we learned that the Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, had suddenly and without real explanation cancelled his long-scheduled appearance to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today. Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted Monday night that “congressional sources” told him that a subpoena would likely be issued to try to compel his appearance. That’s fairly ironic, since it took a threatened subpoena in early November to convince McCabe to agree to testify in the first place. Pergram further reported that his sources believe McCabe cancelled his appearance due to a concern that he would be...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say...

    Roy Jones decided it would be smart for him to bring down a former governor of Massachusetts and a sitting senator from New Jersey to help him win a statewide race in Alabama. This does not strike me as a winning strategy for some reason. Go figure. But Jones has been pretty much tone deaf throughout this race, running essentially the same campaign strategy that Democrat Wendy Davis ran in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial race against Republican Greg Abbott. Davis, if you remember, ran a campaign based on abortion-on-demand, open borders and government control of everything, and brought in a...

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clinton’s 20-plus plane rides on Epstein’s “Lolita...

    Ok, so, the whole “Russia Collusion” narrative has failed, and there is obviously no case to be made against the President for obstructing justice. As a result, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the fake media has latched onto going after the President for his personal habists now. The NYTimes this morning has a hit job today claiming that President Trump watches too much television and drinks too much Diet Coke. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could? Remember that this NYTimes hit job – based entirely on un-named “sources”, of course – comes on the heels...

    President Donald Trump was on fire at a rally in Pensacola Friday evening, where he took on an array of his adversaries, from the fake news media to (sadly) the FBI to huckster attorney Gloria Allred. Commenting on the legal and political system at one point, the President of the United States said “this is a rigged system. There’s no country like ours, but we have a lot of sickness in some of our institutions.” Truer words have never been spoken. After 8 years of an anti-American, Saul Alinskyite presidency, pretty much all of our institutions are sick. That was,...

    The Campaign Update Week In Review (Because The Campaign Never Ends) So, let’s review the week we have just experienced, because it will be remembered as the week the tide truly turned: Humiliation for pretty much every major fake media outlet: CNN, Reuters, Bloomberg, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, WaPo and NPR. Somehow, the NYTimes escaped major embarrassment, unless I missed something. Sheer luck, no doubt. The Mueller coup d’etat effort began to come unraveled, as detailed in Friday morning’s Campaign Update. The Trump economy is booming, and our pathetic ex-President is wandering around the country desperately trying to take credit...

    The bottom line here is this: The Mueller “investigation” has been irrevocably revealed to be nothing more than a political hit job, a slow-rolling coup’ d’etat designed to un-do the results of a duly-conducted national election in the United States of America. It is not just an assault on the Trump Administration, it is an assault on our entire democracy, sponsored by the Clinton camp, holdovers from the Obama Administration and the embeded “deep state” bureaucracies. The fake journalists in the fake news media understand all this, if only subconsciously, and so they keep churning out these “Trump Can’t Fire...
