  • Dan Rather Worries That The Media Has Become ‘A Business Partner Of Donald Trump’

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather on Sunday had some words of advice — and caution — for journalists covering presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. Rather criticized cable news networks’ wall-to-wall coverage of the real estate mogul and warned that they may have been “complicit” in Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP field. “What I worry about is, in a way, the media is a political partner, a business partner of Donald Trump,” Rather said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

    "CNN Host Tries Desperately to Get Corey Lewandowski to Trash Donald Trump – FAILS (VIDEO)" ormer Donald Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski made his first appearance on CNN on Friday as its latest paid contributor. CNN host Erin Burnett tried her hardest to get Corey to trash his former employer and the Trump family. Corey refused saying it was an “honor” to work for Mr. Trump as his campaign manager for the past year. At the end of the interview Corey defended Donald Trump for saying Hillary’s home server was likely breached by foreign hackers. Burnett kept saying that there...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called it "outrageous" that House Democrats would grab microphones and prevent fellow lawmakers from conducting business in violation of House rules, all to make a point about gun control, which is really beside the point, he said: "And when people go on for 12 hours, saying things, 'It's about guns,' then that means Boston was about a pressure cooker. It wasn't. Both of them were about radical Islam," Gohmert told Fox News's Charles Payne.

    Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video. More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

    In Orlando on Thursday, President Obama again called on Congress to do something about these mass public shootings. But the dirty secret about the four different bills that the Senate will vote on Monday is that everyone knows that none of them would have stopped the Orlando massacre. Indeed, none of the bills would have stopped any of the mass public shootings since at least 2000. Everyone wants to do something to stop these attacks, but the one thing that we know does matter -- ending gun-free zones – are being completely ignored in the legislation. Since at least as...

    What’s super sad is that when I started counting all of the mainstream media reporters I respect I didn’t run out of fingers. Most of them are just what Glenn “Instapundit” Reynolds memorably labeled “Democrats with Bylines.” And that’s literally true – something like 90% of them are, in fact, Democrats. And they act like it. So when Trump refuses to play nice with them, or I hear about another round of lay-offs, the best I can summon up, if I’m in a generous mood, is a half-hearted “Meh.”The MSM, of course, wants to have it both ways.

The Emmy-winning Netflix original show “All Hail King Julien,” based on the popular DreamWorks movie-series “Madagascar,” debuts its third season Friday. And there’s an episode about Trump. Although the King Julien character was not originally intended to be a Trump parody in the “Madagascar” universe, the show’s creators decided the royal lemur could be a perfect teaching tool...

    ...In a normal world, Trump would be booed off the stage. Instead, he is applauded (by some) for adding the Post to his list of journalistic organs denied access to his campaign. The applause is disheartening, and is evidence that newspapers are little understood or appreciated. This is owing in part to a few notorious fabricators, who were duly punished, as well as a vast array of alternative news sources. But mostly to blame for the demonization of the media broadly are faux news media outlets, Republicans and their cohorts...

    Donald Trump's favorite nickname for the news media is the "dishonest press." He swaps in "disgusting press" from time to time. And sometimes, he puts it all together: "disgusting, dishonest human beings." The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has a whole menu of takedowns for individual reporters and news organizations. In recent weeks, he's used his microphone and his tweets to label them "third-rate," ''not nice," "disgraceful," "phony," "low-life," "very unprofessional" and "bad people." Or, for extra emphasis in a tweet, "BAD." [Snip] Trump seems to be perpetually mad at the press, but there's a method to his madness. He sees...

After the news of the Orlando shooting broke, the focus of the anti-gun press immediately settled on the long rifle legally purchased by the ISIS aficionado for the terror attack. (He wasn’t on the terrorist watch list at the time, Hillary, just in case you were wondering.) It was immediately announced that an AR-15 was once again at the center of the...

Since at least 1950, only slightly over 1 percent of mass public shootings have occurred where general citizens have been able to defend themselves. Police are extremely important in stopping crime, but even if they had been present at the time of the nightclub shooting, they may have had a very difficult time stopping the attack. Attackers will generally shoot first at any uniformed guards or officers...

Rice was defensive and careful, muttering something familiar about “the facts as we know them.” When she relays wrong information that is given to her, she said, it doesn’t actually make her a liar.

The White House jumped on comments House Speaker Paul Ryan made in order to characterize Donald Trump as a racist. But using the Obama administration’s exact same logic, Obama would also be a racist. Just last year the United States Department of Justice was sued after it forced an immigration judge to recuse herself from “all immigration cases involving Iranians,”according to the Daily Caller. Trump has long been critical of U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is hearing a...

    Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 7-4 decision that Americans don’t have a right to carry concealed handguns for protection. Since California bans people from openly carrying guns, their decision amounted to prohibiting people from carrying guns at all (whether openly or concealed). It is clear that a judge’s political affiliation determines whether he thinks that people have a right to defend themselves. Democratic judges are now moving to overturn recent Supreme Court decisions that struck down bans on guns. Last year, about 0.24 percent of adult Californians had a concealed handgun permit. In the rest...

Her unconventional lifestyle and radical political views helped her make powerful friends and equally powerful enemies.

    The most obvious sign of liberal media favoritism is that liberal candidates can avoid press conferences for months at a time, and the media don't complain.

He merely made a statement in the White House Rose Garden to express his sympathies, and then jetted off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas. Last week, Donald Trump was accused of having a horrific and almost undemocratic attitude...

    "Oops! Bill Clinton Says He ACCIDENTALLY Took $500,000 From Algeria During Key Arms Negotiation With State Department" Oops! Bill Clinton is claiming his foundation “accidentally” accepted money from foreign governments who were negotiating with his wife while she was Secretary of State – a definite no-no. The Clinton Foundation received $500,000 from Algeria in 2010 while the country was lobbying the State Department for an increase in weapons export authorization. The International Business Times says that “some of those export authorizations were for weapons classified as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents [and] biological agents.”  “[Critics] said, ‘Oh you got...

    Joe Bruno on Boxing – Muhammad Ali is Not a Hero. Muhammad Ali passed away Friday night, June 3, 2016. I wrote the article below around the year 2000. I got to know him fairly well in the 1980’s, when I was Vice President of the Boxing Writers Association. He was a real friendly man, and we had several nice conversations about what I have written below. Still, his death doesn’t change what he was, and what he did early in his career. It is with a sad heart that I stand by what is written below. It’s just the...

    I am not normally one to use Facebook politically, but I am so pissed about the un-American thuggish mobs that I decided to change my Facebook profile picture to one of the girls who had been beaten with the caption: "I stand for the victims of the Democrat party's violent intolerance of dissent." Please join me and do the same. Find a compelling picture of a victim and post it as your profile picture in protest of the violence in the Democrat party and support for their victims. If asked how long my friends and family must see these profile...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents, Border Patrol sources tell Judicial Watch. The government classifies them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and this week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. Judicial Watch was present when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Following controversy over undercover videos filmed by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) into the practices of Planned Parenthood, a lawmaker in California has introduced a bill that would make secretly recording inside abortion facilities punishable by up to a year behind bars. “It is the intent of the legislature to enact legislation to prohibit any person from intentionally video recording a confidential communication, or disclosing or distributing that video-recording communication, without obtaining the consent of all parties to the communication,” A.B. 1671, introduced by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez ,reads. It criminalizes any person who “intentionally discloses or...
  • CORRECTING ANOTHER NEW YORK TIMES’ OPED: “GUN CONTROL THAT ACTUALLY WORKS”

    Alan Berlow quotes one person who isn’t worried about gun registration leading to confiscation (“Gun Control That Actually Works,” May 31). But this isn’t very assuring. In 2013, New York City used registration lists to confiscate guns. Americans have seen this happen in California, Chicago, and Connecticut. Evidence suggests registration has not been important to solving crimes. The D.C. police department stated in a 2013 deposition that it could not “recall any specific instance where registration records were used to determine who committed a crime.” Despite registration since 1960, Hawaii has had a similar experience. In 2012, the Royal Canadian...

    How in bed with Hillary Clinton is the mainstream media? Well, you can simply look to the CNN article about Hillary’s e-mail sever scandal to get a hint. The relatively long article details the results of the Inspector General’s report and tries to remain objective by showing both sides: -snip Anyway, at the end of the article, there’s this line: "Clinton violated the law, but committed no crime." Let that sink in for a minute … Clinton violated the law, but committed no crime.

    Washington, DC – Select Investigative Panel Chairman Marsha Blackburn is calling on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to investigate potential violations of federal law by StemExpress and a number of abortion clinics. In a letter to the Office of Centralized Case Management Operations at HHS, Chairman Blackburn asks Director Jocelyn Samuels to examine evidence uncovered by the Select Panel’s investigation that shows StemExpress and the abortion clinics violated the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The HIPAA privacy rule is a patients’ rights law, designed to empower the patient to determine when and...
