    In an exclusive interview with Mother Jones, Clinton says Russian interference and GOP voter suppression efforts may have cost her the presidency.A year after her defeat by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton says “there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” due to Russian interference and widespread voter suppression efforts. In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters—it was determining...
  • Blue States Practice the Family Values Red States Preach

    As we watch Roy Moore thumping his Bible to defend himself from accusations of child molestation, let me toss out a verbal hand grenade: To some degree, liberals practice the values that conservatives preach. This is complicated terrain with lots of exceptions, and the recent scandals involving Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and Al Franken underscore that liberals can be skunks as much as anyone else. Yet if one looks at blue and red state populations as a whole, it’s striking that conservatives champion “family values” even as red states have high rates of teenage births, divorce and prostitution. In contrast,...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Funniest Story of the Week – This is a little off the beaten path for the Campaign Update, but it’s too awesome to ignore. Turns out that trying to stage a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in China is a little more challenging than organizers had originally hoped. Tone deaf singer Katy Perry was scheduled to perform at the event, but was unable to obtain a visa when Chinese officials were informed that, during a 2015 concert in Taipei, Ms. Perry wore a dress adorned with great big sunflowers. Given that the sunflower...

    Isn’t it just so much fun watching as the same Democrats and fake journalists who have been calling for Roy Moore’s twist themselves into logical pretzels finding rationales for Al Franken to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate? A.B. Stoddard made a complete fool of herself on Franken’s behalf last night on the Fox Report panel, saying that well, Franken apologized and Ms. Tweeden said she doesn’t want him to resign, so, you know, it all ok. I didn’t d…wait, you have pictures? Ok, well, yeah, I did that. – Yeah, Franken apologized for fondling Lee Ann Tweeden’s breasts...

    You’ve heard the statistics before: Americans have more guns per head than any nation on earth – along with gun violence rates that are dramatically higher than other rich, developed countries. But these big-picture facts can be misleading. Not every American is packing heat and gun violence is intensely concentrated in small neighbourhoods. Here’s a look at the dramatic concentration of America’s guns – and America’s violence:

    I wrote on Wednesday about the fake news media ramping up its efforts to protect Hillary Clinton from being held accountable for all of her crimes against our country, and like clockwork, here came the Coughing Crook herself, reciting the exact same talking points in a softball interview with a fake reporter from Mother Jones. “This is such an abuse of power,” the Prevaricating Petunia said in response to a question about AG Jeff Sessions revelation that he is considering the appointment of a special counsel to perform a real investigation over her myriad scandals, “I regret deeply that this...

    Last week’s anniversary of Trump’s election sparked widespread teeth-gnashing by the nation’s pundits. Trump is supposedly the gravest threat to American democracy since the secession of the Confederacy. His presidency, probably, continues to be a boon for antidepressant sales across the land. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, in a column last week headlined “Anniversary of the Apocalypse,” lamented the “terror-struck and vertiginous days” after Trump’s win and the ongoing “metaphysical whiplash” and “hideous interregnum,” which leaves her “poleaxed by grief at the destruction of our civic inheritance.” Professor Henry Giroux of McMaster University frothed that Trump’s “ascendancy in American...

    So, the narrative in the fake news media now is that it would somehow be inappropriate for DOJ to investigate President Trump’s “political opponent”, Hillary Clinton. That is the theme advanced by NBC’s Chuck Todd and two other fake reporters in a piece published a NBC.com on Tuesday. To no one’s surprise, this piece – which simply advances the narrative being pushed jointly by the fake media at large and the rest of the Democrat Party – ignores the fact that as of today, Hillary Clinton is in fact no one’s political opponent. She’s not running for anything, and has...

    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. “We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said. “15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims,” Todd replied, somewhat shocked. “So, obviously more than one member of Congress.” Pressed for details, Speier said she did not know how...

    American Thinker ^ | November 14, 2017 | Monica Showalter
    Republican Roy Moore is on the hot seat for alleged bad behavior around women and girls some 40 years ago. Why aren't Democrats Joe Biden and Bob Menendez as well? Former vice president Biden, recall, has a long history of groping women, touching them inappropriately in public, making them obviously uncomfortable, as some of these photos show. Biden is in line as a top Democratic Party contender for the presidency, and nobody's saying a thing about this. Substantially worse than Biden is Democratic senator Bob Menendez, now on trial in New Jersey for corruption. He's been accused of having a...

    President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days By Glenn Kessler, Meg Kelly and Nicole Lewis November 14 at 3:00 AM For some reason, our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by President Trump had seemed like quite a burden in the past month. Well, the numbers are in and now we know why: In the past 35 days, Trump has averaged an astonishing nine claims a day. The total now stands at 1,628 claims in 298 days, or an average of 5.5 claims a day. That puts the president on...

    CNN is kicking off a new series to discuss “challenges facing the media,” and Brian Stelter is leading the way. The series, called “Free Press, What’s At Stake,” is meant to focus “on the challenges facing the media, under attack from critics, governments and changing technology.” It was kicked off by CNN’s Brian Stelter, who penned a column published Sunday titled, “Whose freedom is it?” Stelter wrote, “Press freedom is YOUR freedom. That’s the way I recommend thinking about ‘freedom of the press,'” adding, “it’s about MORE than just journalists. Turn it around. Recognize how protections for the press benefit...

    President Trump chatted with Vladimir Putin for a few minutes at the APEC meetings on Sunday, and all the fake journalists in our fake news media predictably went berserk. The President was especially slammed for saying that he believes Putin means what he says when he denies having made any effort to influence the U.S. election. We are in a very, very dangerous place in our country’s relationship with Russia. We have an entire political party – the Democrats – virtually our entire news media establishment, and rancid Republican war-mongers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, all of whom appear...

"Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN," Drudge wrote before adding, "primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous ..." [Snip] The problem for last-place CNN, though, is that it has actual competition in the form of MSNBC and Fox, both of which are shellacking The Least Trustws Name In News in every conceivable metric. Moreover, when compared to the same month last year, CNN’s October 2017 ratings collapsed a whopping...

    A very bad week for CNN just got a whole lot worse. Tucker Carlson of Fox News addressed the explosive allegation that CNN is doing what it has done so many times before to protect the Clintons and the Democrat Party: destroy a black person. Carlson says CNN management directed employees to destroy Donna Brazile’s credibility. Carlson said: According to highly informed sources we spoke to – highly informed – top management at CNN directed its employees to undermine Brazile’s credibility. Anchors and producers were vocally offended — many of them — by Brazile’s attacks on their friends, the Clintons....

    We have just received information that one of the women accusing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore of soliciting dates from her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30’s is not only a passionate progressive, but she has actually worked for the DNC and is actively campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones. Deborah Wesson Gibson, aka Debbie Gibson, was named in the Washington Post article accusing Moore, and social media evidence makes clear that she is a fervent supporter of Jones and Democrats in general, and has even worked for the DNC. Wesson Gibson is a sign...

    But the big focus by the fake news media has been on Virginia, where establishment Republican Ed Gillespie lost to Democrat Ralph Northam by almost 9% of the vote, a whole 3% more than the margin the Coughing Crook ran up over Mr. Trump in 2016. It is that 3% difference that the Democrat/Fake media axis have seized upon as clear proof that voters all over the country have turned on President Trump and that the Democrats will once again become the ruling party in Washington after the 2018 elections. This “analysis”, such as it is, ignores several things: First,...

    Dr. John Lott with the Crime Prevention Research Center and Alabama Lawyer Eric Guster appeared on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid the day after the Texas church massacre. As Britain’s Daily Star newspaper headline noted: “Piers Morgan yells at Good Morning Britain guest in heated Texas shooting row.” As usual for Piers’ style, he tried to both ask and answer his questions, monopolizing most of the time. Morgan yelled for Lott to “shut up!” and “Silence!” The lively exchange also got a fair amount of attention in the UK. . . .

    Many conservatives have a loose relationship with facts. The right-wing denial of what most people think of as accepted reality starts with political issues: As recently as 2016, 45 percent of Republicans still believed that the Affordable Care Act included “death panels” (it doesn’t). A 2015 poll found that 54 percent of GOP primary voters believed then-President Obama to be a Muslim (…he isn’t). Then there are the false beliefs about generally accepted science. Only 25 percent of self-proclaimed Trump voters agree that climate change is caused by human activities. Only 43 percent of Republicans overall believe that humans have...
