  • Where were the CA and NY State Attorneys General during Harvey Weinstein's Reign of Terror?

    Answer: Positioning themselves to be the 2020 Democratic Nominee for President of the United States. That's right: Kamala Harris and Andrew Cuomo were at the top of the list of people who COULD have looked into Harvey Weinstein. After all, it was such an open secret that Seth McFarlane joked about in the 2013 Academy Awards. ("Congratulations, nominees. You no longer need to pretend you find Harvey Weinstein attractive." Lest you think that was just a Simpsons-like accidentally accurate joke, wonder why Bob Weinstein was the subject of the joke.) Gov. Andrew Cuomo was Attorney General of New York from...

    The Ravens faced a bit more scrutiny for their national anthem protest on Sunday in Baltimore. Last week, some Ravens took a knee and locked arms with while the anthem was played in London before a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Today, the team decided to go the Dallas Cowboys route a la "Monday Night Football." The team came out before the anthem and took a knee to a chorus of boos from fans at M&T Bank Stadium. Then the team stood for the playing of the "Star Spangled Banner."

    The biggest soccer stars in the world are known by one name: Pele. Ronaldo. Messi. The United States has never produced that kind of world-class talent, but a 19-year-old from Hershey, Pennsylvania, is poised to change that. Christian Pulisic is not only the youngest player on the U.S. National Team, he may just be the best American to ever play the game. This week, Pulisic will play with Team USA as it tries to qualify for the World Cup. For the last two years, he's been playing professionally with one of the most revered clubs in Europe. We spent time...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon stepped out on Saturday night holding hands with his rumored boyfriend. The 51-year-old veteran journalist attended the star-studded Saturday Night Live after party at Tao Restaurant and Night Club in New York City with Tim Malone. It appears as though Lemon has been dating Malone since at least April, according to a number of photos posted to their respective social media accounts. But this is the first time Lemon has been photographed publicly with Malone, who works as a sales executive in his 30s and graduated from Boston College in 2006, according to his LinkedIn profile.

    Are Americans afforded national political platforms during work hours to broadcast their political views? If millionaire ball players in the NFL and other sports are allowed to conduct nationally seen public protest/demonstrations during work, why are the rest of Americans barred from doing this during working hours? And it's not even disputable, their actions clearly disrupted the work place for the NFL. In fact, there are all kinds of guidelines and threats directed at regular middle American tax payers who dare to protest or demonstrate during working hours. And they get zero national TV coverage for their protests. My advice...

    Pres Trump....and the Congress....need to determine the whereabouts of US government computers ex-Pres Obama removed from the White House before he exited. These White House computers are official US Government property and are laden w/ rules, regs, and laws. The missing computers are the only known electronic links to Obama's clandestine operations and could be used as evidence of impropriety. At the time the computers were being used, Hillary was considered a shoo-in for president. She and her supporters apparently engaged in suspect conduct via computer. Following the 2016 election a long list of possible malfeasance surfaced. Americans demand to...

    Myth: American vs. Enemy dead. Myth that Americans got beat on the battlefield. Fact: 1.1 million North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were killed - by estimate of the current Vietnamese government. So the actual numbers likely even higher than that. American dead numbered under 60,000. https://www.britannica.com/event/Vietnam-War Myth Blacks suffered deaths disproportionately. This myth persists in school history books and was repeated in the PBS documentary. Here are the facts: During the Vietnam War era (draft era to be precise) blacks of military age made up 13.5 percent of the total population, but only 9.7 percent of the Vietnam era military...

    NATIONAL POST ^ | 11/27/11 | RANDY BOSWELL
    In a relatively rare admission for an American scholar, a leading U.S. historian who authored a provocative new tome about North American military conflicts states bluntly that Canada won the War of 1812. Johns Hopkins University professor Eliot Cohen, a senior adviser to former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, writes in his just-published book Conquered Into Liberty that, “ultimately, Canada and Canadians won the War of 1812.” And Cohen acknowledges that, “Americans at the time, and, by and large, since, did not see matters that way.”

    NFL players who disrespect our nation's flag and National Anthem are claiming it is a protest about equality and they have to do this because they are not being heard. I say we stand with them by demanding that the US Department of Labor and EEOC enforce all existing employment and affirmative action rules on the businesses that participate in the NFL to make sure that their respective employee demographics reflect the US population by the end of the 2018-19 season.

    Here is the letter I just wrote: I can not believe I ever voted for you for President . . . actually I was voting for Sarah, not you anyhow. As a conservative I am fed up with this attitude of not taking what you can get and revisiting the issue another year solely because it is not perfect. Anyone who votes against this should be immediately stripped of their committee posts and standing in the Party. You have let your anger towards President Trump and ego get in the way of what this country needs right now, and that...

    All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul. Psalm 22:29 American forests are another example of why you do not want Marxists controlling anything on the this scale. After forty years of liberal activists having absolute control of these forests, they are dying and burning in record numbers. The smoke and ash in the Western skies are now a common sight as their forests are being burned to the ground. This summer there was a lightning strike...

    I wish I wasn’t the one to bring this tragedy to these vaulted pages amidst the litany of bad news we’ve huddled together against. I’m only the messenger of this giant’s downfall, who no doubt touched us all. Rapper Shawty Lo has died in a car accident in Atlanta. The 40-year-old rapper, born Carlos Walker, was ejected from his vehicle after he crashed into two trees on his way home from an Atlanta strip club. Walker leaves behind 11 children from 10 different mothers. He made headlines in 2013 when the television network Oxygen announced a special about the rapper...

    By the alt-lefts own standards Bill Clinton is a Nazi White Supremacist. In 1987 he advocated for Robert E. Lee to have his own official holiday. The DNC did their best to cover it up but with all the anti-history hysteria happening lately, this can no longer remain hidden and ignored.

    Katie, bar the ever-lovin’ door. Compromise seems a forlorn hope in today’s strange version of America. Anger runs too deep. All that is left is to choose sides. We will then see whether the country sinks—continues sinking–into a Soviet future already largely upon us, or we see armed mobs battling in the streets. Does this sound crazy? I don’t think so. The hostility is beyond anything I have seen in what has become a depressingly long life. In the media, on the web, anger seethes. Countries both civilized and not have plunged into bloodshed over as little. Think of Sunnis...
