    Though President Donald Trump came to power on a wave of promises to keep jobs in the U.S., reinvigorate heavy industry and, of course, Make America Great Again, many in his core support group are yet to see the benefits. Plenty of people in manufacturing are turning their backs on Trump because he hasn’t followed through on what he said he'd do, says a General Motors union leader representing workers across the U.S. The warning to the president comes almost exactly a year after Trump won the election with a pledge to improve the lives of American workers and the...

    Let’s start with a rather uncontroversial statement: It’s important to learn about the Holocaust, and Anne Frank’s diary is an excellent way to start. What seems more contentious, however, is the notion that it would be a good idea to dress up as one of the Holocaust’s most famous victims for Halloween. One online costume retailer recently discovered the hard way just how offensive many people find that idea. pulled an “Anne Frank costume for girls” off its website on Sunday after being criticized for putting it up in the first place. “It is utterly inappropriate, offensive and quite...

    Add another page to Donald Trump's weird recipe book—the president apparently ate rice and cherry pie for lunch on Tuesday with Senate Republicans. NBC News reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell broke the story right after the meal, tweeting that she overheard a Secret Service agent discussing Trump's intake: "He ate rice and two pieces of cherry pie. Took a few sips of his drink," Caldwell tweeted. "'He loves rice.'" Meatloaf was also served at the Tuesday luncheon, which came as top GOP senators were preparing to revamp the tax code. It's unclear whether the president ate any, but the American people...

    RUSH: On Hillary Clinton. She won’t let go of this. It’s getting embarrassing. It’s getting embarrassing for her, although she doesn’t sense that because she has such a feeling of entitlement and such a sense of having been cheated that she’s lost all grounding in reality on this. I think we are learning a lot about who Hillary Clinton really always has been in this little episode. She, like so many people on the left, considered her election to be a formality. It was that big a slam dunk. It had been fixed, it had been taken care of, everybody...
  • Newsweek Desperately Promotes Validity of 'Golden Showers' Dossier

    After months and months of investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators have nothing to show for their manic search for a crime. Therefore the news this past week that members of Mueller's team interviewed the author of the "Golden Showers" dossier have given much of the mainstream media some slight hope that maybe, just maybe, something in that document can finally give them hope. One MSM outlet in particular, Newsweek, is notable for its desperation to lend validity to the "Golden Showers" dossier. Newsweek assigned its own Jason Le Miere to the unenviable task of lending credibility...

    On Tuesday, President Trump addressed the United Nations and, shocking to no one savelLeft-of-center news agencies, he expressed his strong belief in his own economic policies; in America—its people, way of life, and the Constitution which governs it; and in business enterprise as a path to freedom and prosperity. Trump’s speech, optimistic and pro-American as it was, falls in the mainstream of American presidential tradition. Indeed, it is the stuff of a Truman or a Reagan. But you’d never know it from how it was reported. The Guardian called it “a blunt, fearful rant.” That is a more apt description...
  • Replacing DACA: Future Dreamers Should Be Protected Too

    With the emergence in the last week of Bipartisan Trump, we face the prospect of congressional implementation of a statute that replaces DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) sooner rather than later. Despite some ambivalent tweeting, it now appears as though Trump has agreed in principle with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to enshrine DACA in legislation that also includes additional border security measures (but not border wall funding). Between Democrats and pro-business (and thus pro-immigration) "establishment" Republicans, there is likely majority support in Congress for such a measure.

    The Superintendent of Cherokee Schools District in Georgia has apologized after a teacher told students they were banned from wearing Trump T-shirts. A math teacher at River Ridge High School, who has not been named, incorrectly told two students their Make America Great Again (MAGA) shirts violated the school’s dress code and said they were not permitted to wear them to class. As well as telling the students they were not allowed to wear their preferred clothing, the teacher also shared a personal opinion about the MAGA slogan, in footage that was filmed on Thursday by students and then released...

    Bernie Sanders supporters switched their allegiance to Donald Trump in large enough numbers last November to sway the election for the real estate billionaire, according to an analysis of voter data released Tuesday by the blog Political Wire. Since Trump’s shock victory over Hillary Clinton, much discussion has focused on the degree to which passionate Sanders supporters’ refusal to embrace Clinton led to the Republican winding up in the White House. According to the analysis of the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election Survey, fewer than 80 percent of those who voted for Sanders, an independent, in the Democratic primary did the...

    Vice President Mike Pence compared President Donald Trump to former President Teddy Roosevelt, who believed white people were “the forward race.” Speaking on Tuesday, just days after violence at a white supremacist rally left one person dead, Pence made the unfortunate comparison between the U.S.’ 26th president and Trump. “In President Donald Trump, the United States once again has a president whose vision, energy and can-do spirit is reminiscent of President Teddy Roosevelt,” Pence said in comments reported by Guardian correspondent Ben Jacobs.

    There seems to be no bar to the crazy this week in the aftermath of Charlottesville. While critics are screaming at Trump’s suggestion that, after the Confederate monuments the left may go after the Founding Fathers, the fine people over at Newsweek are actually considering it. Not insane enough? Vice wants to “Blow Up Mount Rushmore.” America-hating lefty Wilbert L. Cooper at Vice stated in his article, “Fact is, I'm not sure there is any American president worthy of being etched into the side of a 60-foot mountain with explosives and jackhammers. I mean, every single one has at least...

    At some point in 2019 (if not sooner) a Republican Senator may walk into the Oval Office and say to President Trump: “Mr. President, we don’t have the votes,” at which point the Trump presidency will end in a resignation or a conviction in the Senate. This scenario actually occurred forty-three years ago this summer when Republican Senator Barry Goldwater walked into the Oval Office and told Republican President Richard Nixon that they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to save his presidency.
  • Newsweek Attacks Trump Women for Wearing High Heels in Public

    08/11/2017 10:40:11 AM PDT · by MarvinStinson · 78 replies
    Newsweek attacked President Donald Trump's female relatives for wearing high heels in public in a piece published Thursday, saying it showed they were subservient to men. "Melania, Ivanka, and Ivana Trump Wear High Heels, a Symbol of Everything That Is Beautiful and Horrifying About Them," read the headline. "The female consorts of the Leader of the Free World do not set foot in public without first molding their arches into the supranatural curve that Mattel toy designers once devised for Barbie's plastic feet," the author complained. Newsweek argued that high heels are designed primarily to attract men, not for the...

    Malia Obama, the oldest daughter and child of former President Barack Obama, was recorded looking dazed as she was carted away from the Lollapalooza music festival Friday in Chicago, just hours after her dancing and flailing antics also were recorded on video, TMZ reported Tuesday. Two videos, the first published Saturday showing the 19-year-old writhing on the ground, are likely to increase scrutiny on the former first daughter and potentially up the attention paid to her younger sister Sasha. But, like many a first daughter before her, Malia’s likely struggle to enjoy the rigors of her youth out of the...

    The current issue of Newsweek (yes, it's still in business!) has a picture of President Trump sitting in a recliner, with snacks and an iPad in his lap, pointing his TV remote at the viewer, blazoned with the headline, "Lazy Boy." Liberals only wish. Last week, the president joined Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) to announce legislation that would make seminal changes to our immigration laws for the first time in more than half a century, profoundly affecting the entire country. The media have chosen not to cover the RAISE Act (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment)....

    (WHAS) Newsweek doesn’t shy away from criticizing President Trump in its latest issue. Emblazoned on the issue’s cover: “LAZY BOY: Donald Trump is bored and tired. Imagine how bad he’d feel if he did any work.” The cover features an illustration of the president sitting in a recliner with junk food, his phone and a remote. It also notes that in the six months Trump has been in office, he has spent 40 days at golf clubs and seen the passage of zero pieces of major legislation.

    An outspoken Democratic critic of President Donald Trump's is leading the call for Vice President Mike Pence to become the next commander-in-chief. California Representative Maxine Waters, who has become an internet sensation among the left for her frank criticism of the president in recent months, tweeted Saturday: "Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition." Her tweet comes after former chief of staff Reince Priebus resigned from office Friday, a week after Sean Spicer left his post as press secretary. The men, both longtime insiders among the top ranks of the national Republican party,...
  • The Solar Eclipse Could Mean Disaster for Trump, According to Astrologers

    The Solar Eclipse Could Mean Disaster for Trump, According to Astrologers By Max Kutner On 7/29/17 at 10:30 AM Donald Trump’s presidency was written in the stars—at least that’s what astrologers are saying. He was born during a lunar eclipse, they point out, which makes him more susceptible to the power of eclipses. And if eclipses are monumental celestial events with real-world consequences, as astrologers believe, then the rare total solar eclipse happening in August could have major implications for Trump, especially given the growing drama around his administration. “There’s been a lot of conversation about this eclipse in terms...
