    The infamous Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer,” speaking exclusively with Fox News, claimed he easily – and repeatedly – breached former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal email server in early 2013. "For me, it was easy ... easy for me, for everybody," Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker "Guccifer," told Fox News from a Virginia jail where he is being held.

    Greenpeace charged on Monday that a massive US-EU trade deal would place corporate interests above the environment and consumer safety, as it released classified documents from the negotiations. […] Greenpeace said the papers show, for example, that the US wants to be able to scrap existing EU rules in areas such as food labeling or approval of dangerous chemicals if it they spell barriers to free trade. “TTIP is about a huge transfer of power from people to big business,” the group argued, having also projected an image of a classified text passage onto the façade of Berlin’s parliament building....

    One week after being fired from ESPN after commenting on and promoting a controversial anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page, Curt Schilling is firing back at his former employers. In a one-hour guest appearance on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s “Breitbart News Patriot Forum,” the former pitcher-turned-analyst flatly accused the sports network of being biased against political conservatives and having inconsistent standards when it comes to reprimanding on-air talent. According to Newsday, Schilling's commentary was recorded on Wednesday afternoon and is scheduled to air at 8 a.m. Thursday morning. Here's just a sampling of what he had to say. “It was apparent...

Maite Arce of the Hispanic Access Foundation delivered the “really tough” message during a press conference on Thursday: “It’s such a shame that something as simple as the uniform and it’s similarity to the border patrol’s uniform — in the coloring — could be very threatening to certain segments of the Latino population.

    It seems GQ wanted to play fast and loose with the truth about GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s wife, Melania. GQ did a story where it mentioned it talked to members of Melania’s past including family members and without permission wrote about a brother she claims to have never known about. Trump asked the publisher to respect her father’s wishes for privacy but that didn’t happen. The journalist also wrote Melania’s father being investigated for tax evasion which Melania denied. I think that set her off forcing her to address this on Facebook to many of her fans who support her...

    (Washington, DC) – The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014. If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands of emails. The developments come in a July 2014 Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit seeking records related to the drafting and use of the Benghazi talking points (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of...

    National Review ^ | April 25, 2016 | John R Lott Jr
    What does Hillary Clinton really believe on guns? This year, she is running to the left of Bernie Sanders. In 2008, she ran well to the right of Obama, arguing against any kind of federal “blanket rules.” On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton gave an address at Philadelphia’s St. Paul’s Baptist Church. With a nod to Pennsylvania’s high rate of gun ownership, she declared: “There is a Second Amendment, there are constitutional rights. We aren’t interested in taking away guns of lawful, responsible gun owners.” But in New York City in the fall, she told donors: “The Supreme Court is wrong on...

    First Amendment: More information travels faster to more consumers than ever before. So why does a new survey show trust in media at rock bottom? Because so much more accurate information is available elsewhere. When Matt Drudge in early 1998 broke the story of President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions in the Oval Office study with Monica Lewinsky, it was the dawn of a new era in news reporting. Woodward and Bernstein seemed like the hip, new faces of journalism when they came along in the early 1970s and helped bring down a president. But although no one ever made a movie...

    Associated Press ^ | 4/17/2016 | CAROLE FELDMAN and EMILY SWANSON
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Trust in the news media is being eroded by perceptions of inaccuracy and bias, fueled in part by Americans' skepticism about what they read on social media. Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents. But trust today also goes beyond the traditional journalistic principles of accuracy, balance and fairness. Faced with ever-increasing sources of...

Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis said that a 2005 federal law protecting gun-makers from lawsuits does not prevent lawyers for the victims' families from arguing that the semi-automatic rifle is a military weapon and should not have been sold to civilians.

    There is a pistol-packing revolution going on in America. Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry concealed handguns — triple the number just nine years ago — and that figure is low because not every state reports. It's puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells us violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades. In search of handgun permit holders, I drove out to the Texas Firearms Festival, an outdoor gun extravaganza held near Austin where firearms fanciers get to shoot everything they see. I'm...

    Some of the most disturbing aspects of the times in which we are living include the utter corruption of the mass print and broadcast media and the lack of awareness of this fact by a large portion of the public. It seems that most Americans operate on the assumption that the media is making a good-faith, if imperfect, effort at objectively informing its audience. That so few are genuinely aware of the outrageous manipulation of public opinion now taking place is the single greatest threat to the republic, to the extent that we can even say that our republic still...

    Call it likelihood, call it probability, call it intellectual honesty, or call it something else; it matters not – there’s overwhelming evidence the Wisconsin battleground stakes are so consequential that much of the current data being presented by the media is agenda driven. Before explaining the insufferable fingerprints of corporate media influence, the first and most important takeaway must be emphasized. Regardless of everything, a strong voter turnout is critical. All efforts, for all candidates, should be made to get out supporters on election day.

Miller pointed out that Ted Cruz supported the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal that will cost the US millions of jobs. Cruz also pushed to expand Muslim immigration into America. This is despite the fact that Obama has issued 68o,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim countries in the last five years. The Cruz amendment would have doubled the number of Muslim immigrants to America to up to 1.35 million. Steve Miller added, “Why is it that...

    A new Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) report shows that guns were stolen from licensed dealers at a rate of .039 percent in 2015. This revelation comes even as the Obama administration is working to finalize and implement new rules for Federal Firearm License holders (FFLs) regarding the reporting of stolen weapons. Breitbart News previously reported that Obama’s January 5 executive gun controls would place even more reporting requirements –read, regulations — on the backs of FFLs, and CPRC’s new numbers highlight the lack of necessity for these new measures. According to CPRC, there were approximately 16 millions guns sold...

Cruz, a Cuban-American and an original critic of the United States' detente with the island nation, wrote in a Politico op-ed that the media spectacle of the president's visit will cast a shadow over the reality of humanitarian conditions there. "[P]olitical prisoners languishing in dungeons across the island will hear this message: Nobody has your back. You're alone with your tormentors. The world has forgotten about you," Cruz wrote.

    Over the past 28 years there has been a sea change in the media. Not only has the monopoly of the so-called mainstream media been shattered but the phenomenal rise of conservative media has been truly stunning. It began in 1988 with the national syndication of Rush Limbaugh and his distinctive brand of conservative political commentary espoused in an entertaining and captivating way, which opened the flood gates for other conservatives, together with Rush, to dominate the talk radio airwaves. In the 1990’s the internet, through hundreds of websites, gave voice to journalists to report stories either ignored or downplayed...

    MSNBC ^ | Rachel Maddow
    Rachel Maddow points to past examples of when an extremist candidate horrified the Republican establishment and threatened to tear the party apart, but the party endured, and now there are signs that down-ballot Republican candidates are not suffering because of Donald Trump's involvement. **actual "Confession of a Republican" ad starts at 4:40 if you want to skip over the creature Maddow bleating spastically while looking like Wil Wheaton in lip gloss.
  • The new battle cry: Why can't the media 'stop' Trump?

    Fox News ^ | March 17, 2016 | Howard Kurtz
    As Donald Trump’s detractors grow increasingly loud and desperate, they are aiming their ire at a new target: The media. Trump must be stopped, they declare, and it’s the media’s mission to halt him in his tracks. It’s an argument that fundamentally misreads the role of the press. And it is being made by some generally smart people who are so apoplectic over the prospect of a Trump nomination or Trump presidency that they don’t understand why journalists haven’t convinced the country to despise The Donald the way they do.

    Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s name was left off Florida primary ballots according to reports relayed by Fox News’ Jennifer Eckhart on Twitter who said the local Fox affiliate has received “dozens of complaints.” Eckhart wrote the irregularities are in “Jupiter County” which does not exist. She probably meant the town of Jupiter or Palm Beach County where Jupiter is located. Palm Beach County is where Trump’s Florida base Mar-a-Lago is located.

    Is the media inciting violence against Donald Trump? Frank Chung THE media wants a member of the public to kill Donald Trump. That’s the view of a growing number of commentators, who have sounded warnings about the increasingly dangerous tone to media reporting around the Republican presidential hopeful. In a lengthy blog post, Scott Adams, the creator of the popular Dilbert comic strip, has slammed the media for “priming the public to try to kill Trump”, likening the conduct to the death of Princess Diana in 1997. The author recalled how a mere three months earlier, in his book The...

    Scott Adams' Blog ^ | 3/13/2016 | Scott Adams
    *snip* It would be easy to blame the protesters for taking things too far. But all they are doing is responding to hate speech from the next Hitler. Shouldn’t someone be fighting hard to stop Hitler? We can’t blame people for wanting fewer Hitlers. So it all comes back to me. Readers tell me I legitimized Trump with my blogging about his genius for persuasion. I accept that blame. Some have suggested that my so-called predictions about Trump are actually a form of persuasion that has caused some of his success. I plead guilty to that as well. But it...

    As Donald Trump continues to surge forward as the most-likely Republican nominee, perfectly sane people are beginning to wonder: "Was there something we missed? Maybe he’s not really so bad." Shed that self-doubt and purge the thought. You're not wrong - and he's that bad. Just ask the Breitbart reporter who was roughed up at a recent Trump rally. And she’s one of the "good" people. Imagine what happens to his critics once a Trump presidency takes shape.

    Chris Matthews at Center of NBC’s Latest News Scandal MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews isn’t much for keeping his promises of transparency when it involves political contributions to his wife’s congressional campaign. Last June, the blabbermouth commentator insisted on his show that he would be “transparent and fair in our coverage” after his wife, Kathleen, announced that she was running as a Democrat for the open seat in Maryland’s 8th District. Since then, Kathleen Matthews, a former news anchor and Marriott exec, has received a total of $79,050 in campaign contributions from prominent former and current politicians featured on her...
