    Associated Press ^ | July 16, 2016
    Through a dogged campaign to build toilets and educate Bangladeshis about the dangers of open defecation, the densely populated South Asian nation has managed to reduce the number of people who defecate in the open to just 1 percent of the 166 million population, according to the government — down from 42 percent in 2003.
  • Trump speaks the truth (Saturbray)

    Then the LORD will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. Perhaps President Trump learned something about giving out Olive Branches to the DNC; they are going to shove them in your ear. Now the big outrage is he made some salty language about some Turd World countries who are invading our Country. This is another example of what the DNC is rather than some libs being offended for a man talking like a man....

    Really? When on CNN this evening, discussing President Trump’s statement about “s—hole countries,” the National Review’s Rich Lowry asked lefty Joan Walsh whether she’d rather live in Haiti or Norway, Walsh responded: “I don’t know, I don’t know. I haven’t been to either place.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Oprah For President? Why Not Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton?

    01/11/2018 8:17:32 AM PST · by pinochet · 54 replies
    For those who want Oprah to be the next President, I have a better idea on who should serve in the next government. How about Miley Cyrus as President, Kim Kardashian as Vice President, and Paris Hilton as Secretary of Defense. As Secretary of State, we need someone with experience of visiting foreign countries. How about Madonna? If qualifications and experience mean nothing to the elites in this country, I cannot think of better candidates than those.

    Looks like calling President Trump unstable and unfit isn’t enough for liberals like Chris Matthews. The Hardball host has now resorted to claiming that Trump reminds him of a homicidal freak from a “Twilight Zone” episode. On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews, speaking to “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, said: “I really mean this, when I was reading your book . . . the mood in yours is a different sense, it’s a scary sense. It reminds me of that Twilight [Zone] episode, way back in the 60s, where there’s this kid with auto-kinetic powers. "Ferocious kid with no mental...

    Was that actually Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe today, or had someone hacked into the MSNBC feed and inserted a parody bit about elitist, Trump-hating snobs? We’ll look into it. In the meantime, here’s what “Mika” ostensibly said this morning: “I had some friends that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be Americans. They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling. That they didn’t even want to share where they were from.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On his CNN show this morning, Jake Tapper prematurely ended his contentious interview of senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller, in the course of which Miller repeatedly criticized CNN's biased coverage of President Trump. Abruptly ending the interview, Tapper: “There’s one viewer that you care about right now, and you’re being obsequious, you’re being a factotum in order to please him, okay? And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen.” Get the rest of the story here.
  • Joe Conason: Investigating the Clintons “Sells to Boobs Out there on the Right”

    Scratch a liberal, find disdain for the intelligence of conservatives. For that matter, no scratching required when it comes to Joe Conason, who proudly flaunts his contempt for conservatives. Appearing on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, Conason—who’s made a career out of defending the Clintons—sneered that investigating the Clintons: “sells to boobs out there on the right.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    If MSNBC’s Joy Reid wanted to demonstrate intellectual courage and honesty, she’d invite real Republicans and strong Trump advocates on her shows. Instead, she prefers to bring on avid Trump haters. Reid scraped the absolute bottom of the barrel when this evening, substituting for Chris Hayes, she had on the loathsome Rick Wilson. This is the guy who—in terms so vile I won’t repeat them here—accused Ann Coulter of literally being a prostitute for Trump. Asked if he was surprised by the lack of loyalty depicted in Michael Wolff’s about-to-be-released book about the Trump White House, Wilson says: “When you’ve...

    01/02/2018 1:19:18 PM PST · by cotton1706 · 37 replies
    Make no mistake. Mitt Romney, should he be elected to the Senate, will be a liberal republican. He will be a John McCain, an Arlen Specter, a Jim Jeffords, a Susan Collins. The Establishment's dream! A liberal republican in what would otherwise be a hard-right conservative seat...just like John Mccain.

    (CNN) - After almost a full year of Donald Trump's presidency, and with a new year freshly started, I think it's safe to say that we're all exhausted. I remember thinking after the first few months of 2017 went by, "He can't possibly keep this pace up -- governing by tweet -- it's unsustainable." Clearly, I was wrong. Just three days before 2018 began, in an impromptu interview with The New York Times, President Donald Trump declared that one of the reasons "I'm going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if...

    Minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve, a 16-year-old boy allegedly used a semi-automatic rifle owned by a family member to shoot and kill his parents, sister and a family friend inside the parents' home in a coastal city in southern New Jersey, the county prosecutor said.
  • Ex-Obama State Dept. Spox: We Didn’t Support Iran Protesters in 2009 Because They Asked Us Not To

    More from the woman who claimed “job opportunities” were the key to defeating ISIS . . . Marie Harf, a former Obama State Department spokeswoman, appeared on today’s Fox News Sunday. Substitute host Dana Perino didn’t hesitate to put Harf on the hot seat, comparing Obama’s lack of support for Iranian protesters in 2009 with President Trump and VP Pence’s support for the protesters in Iran today. Exemplifying Obama’s losing, “leading from behind,” approach to foreign policy, Harf said: “The reason we didn’t [support the protesters] was that it was our judgment—and we were hearing from Iranians protesting on the...
  • Burning wood for power is ‘misguided’ say climate experts

    The Guardian ^ | Dec 31, 2017 | Robin McKie
    Policies aimed at limiting climate change by boosting the burning of biomass contain critical flaws that could actually damage attempts to avert dangerous levels of global warming in the future. That is the stark view of one of Britain’s chief climate experts, Professor John Beddington, who has warned that relying on the cutting down and burning of trees as a replacement for the use of fossil fuels could rebound dangerously. Beddington, a former UK government chief scientific adviser, said there was now a real risk that increasing wood-burning in order to help European countries, including Britain, reach renewable energy targets...

    I’ve got a beef with Hugh Hewitt. Why does he exclude people from US conservative publications from his “Young Guns” panel on his Saturday morning MSNBC show? His panel today, as it has been before, was comprised of reporters from the Daily Mail, Washington Post, NBC News and Politico. All but the Daily Mail lean left, and the Daily Mail is a UK-based outfit, though it’s been expanding operations into the US. Why not someone from, e.g, Breitbart, National Review, Daily Caller, Weekly Standard, Commentary, etc? Putting that aside for now, Hewitt quickly managed to work in a presidential prediction....

    Talk about your paranoid fantasies . . . Republican pollster and columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson has floated a scenario in which President Trump would question the validity of “elections, period” if Democrats win the Congress in 2018 and are seen moving toward impeachment. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Soltis Anderson spun what she described as a “really scary situation”: "If President Trump looks like he is potentially at risk of having a Democratic Congress that may begin to want to pursue impeachment proceedings, do you really then begin to see this questioning of the validity of elections period?” Get the...

    (CNN)At 8 p.m. Thursday, after a third straight day of golf at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, and the temperature was 72 degrees, President Donald Trump tweeted this: "In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!" The "logic" at work here is simple: How can climate change, aka global warming, be real if it is so cold outside? Trump tweets that...

    I have 1,000 words to convince you to celebrate Christmas—or, as someone on Facebook recently put it, “The Jesus Myth.” Right. I could try to convince you that Christmas is a fully Christian celebration, having nothing to do with supposed appropriations of pagan festivals, but that presumes that you care about celebrating Christmas as Christian in the first place. What I need to do is convince you that the myth matters as a myth. This is not a comfortable thought for many modern Christians, accustomed as we are to the accusation that we worship a fairy-tale sky god. If you...

    Any conservative will tell you the nasty names they’ve been called time and again by those on the left. There’s the obvious “deplorable” label which most of us have embraced as humorous. Then there are the standard sexist, xenophobe, islamophobe labels as well as the long-standing homophobe. But perhaps the most persistent accusation from the left is that conservatives are racist. This is a textbook example of psychological projection which places one’s undesirable feelings onto another rather than acknowledging them as their own. And the left is guilty of this more often than not. How do I know this? Because...
