    Creepy horror story writer Stephen King promised an electoral horror show for Maine's Republican Senator Susan Collins if she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice. King's prediction came in the form of a tweet he posted on Saturday. This comes as no real surprise since King has a track record of really hating Donald Trump.  First a look at his tweet threat followed by a trip into the dark recesses of King's mind.

    A conservative columnist for The Washington Post compared President Donald Trump’s recent social media comments regarding hurricane fatalities in Puerto Rico last year to Holocaust denial, and accused the president of not caring about the deaths of Latinos and non-voters. Jennifer Rubin, a former writer for conservative outlets including The Weekly Standard and Human Events, excoriated President Trump over the weekend, telling MSNBC on Saturday the president was responsible for the deaths in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria last year. “Donald Trump has killed those people twice: once through neglect and oversight; secondly, disgracing that they died at all.” “If...
  • The one question Republicans need to ask voters to keep Congress

    New York Post ^ | September 15, 2018 | Deroy Murdock
    “Are you better off now than you were two years ago?” Republicans should ask voters this key question during the 2018 midterms. It would shift the debate from the childish and shrill Resistance to the mature and optimistic topic of results. By nearly any measure, Washington’s unified Republican government has improved things for every American since the last election. The economy is roaring, thanks to Republican public policy. Obama’s “You didn’t build that,” anti-business hectoring has been replaced by gratitude. For each new federal regulation, 22 asphyxiating rules have been scrapped. And $1.5 trillion in GOP tax cuts have supplied...
  • GOP Gives Up On Repealing Obamacare

    Front Page Magazine ^ | September 14, 2018 | Matthew Vadun
    Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress. Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins,...

    American Thinker ^ | Sept. 16, 2018 | Clarice Feldman
    Looking back on the week's events, it occurs to me that the Democrats' new theme song should be "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" as they reprise the demagogic lies and smear tactics that once worked for them but are now failing for anyone with a memory longer than a week or two. On the other hand, watching the Russian collusion fizzle, it might be "I'm Waiting for Ships that Never Come In."
  • At least 12 dead after 560-mile wide super-typhoon hits the Philippines

    At least 12 people have died in the northern Philippines in the wake of the 560-mile wide Super-Typhoon Mangkhut. Most of them died in landslides or inside houses that got pummelled by the storm's fierce winds and rain. Presidential adviser Francis Tolentino said the dead included an infant and another child who were among four people killed in a landslide in Nueva Vizcaya, one of several provinces battered by the typhoon today. Mr Tolentino also said that at least two other people are missing and the death toll could climb to 16 once other casualty reports are verified.

    A licensed gun owner was hailed Thursday for his role in helping police in suburban Chicago stop a suspect who was firing an automatic weapon, officials said. Officials commended the unnamed civilian for his actions as they stood outside a hospital where Cicero police Officer Luis Duarte, 31, was undergoing surgery for four gunshot wounds suffered during the shootout, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “We were lucky enough to have a citizen on the street there’s who’s a concealed-carry holder, and he’s also engaged in gunfire,” said Cicero police Superintendent Jerry Chlada Jr. Image Gallery 3 PHOTOS Cicero police Officer...

    BRENTWOOD, Long Island — The mother of a teen killed by alleged MS-13 gang members in Brentwood was fatally struck by a vehicle at the site where a memorial service was about to be held for her daughter on Friday, officials confirmed. Evelyn Rodriguez, the mother of Kayla Cuevas, was killed at the same spot on Stahley Street where her daughter was found dead in September 2016. Congressman Peter King says it happened about an hour before a planned memorial service at that location for her daughter. Suffolk County police say they are investigating.

    Do you know what today is? Monday, September 17, is of course a very important and underappreciated occasion which I believe should be a national holiday -- Constitution Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. But it was on this date, September 14, that one of the most important provisions came into being, thanks to George Mason. It was Article V. "The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call...

    A random act of nature unfolded Tuesday when the most regal of American symbols, a bald eagle, perched atop a fire truck during a Twin Cities Sept. 11 ceremony. The unscripted landing added to the moment on the Main Street overpass above Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids, where firefighters from various departments were paying their annual tribute to those who died 17 years ago in the coordinated terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and to the emergency responders who rushed into harm’s way. “Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” on-the-scene Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich said...

    A few weeks ago American media began heavily promoting a generally odd video of Supreme Court Justice doing a workout. It seemed weird. Today, the motive of putting out that video becomes transparent. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears at an event hosted by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). Watch:

    Bad news for Google and other internet advertisers: Brave is pushing to make farming user data a whole lot harder. Founder Brandon Eich wants to bring the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to the doorstep of some of the most powerful companies in the world. “There is a massive and systematic data breach at the heart of the behavioral advertising industry. Despite the two-year lead-in period before the GDPR, adtech companies have failed to comply,” Brave’s chief policy officer Johnny Ryan told Reuters. Eich and Brave are calling out the way that personal data is harvested by various websites...

    On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Wednesday, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur predictably exploited Hurricane Florence to push the left’s climate change agenda and condemn “deniers” in the Trump administration. She brought on liberal environmental activist Bill Nye and ex-Clinton administration official Paul Bledsoe to provide even more alarmist rhetoric. “President Trump says FEMA is ready for Hurricane Florence, but mounting evidence suggests it could incredibly difficult to deal with this disaster if climate change deniers are on the front lines of emergency response,” Tur proclaimed at the top of the segment. She then touted a new study “echoing...
