  • What the Media Really Wants

    Sultan Knish ^ | 1/17/18 | Greenfield
    Wednesday, January 17, 2018 What the Media Really Wants Posted by Daniel Greenfield President Trump’s end year remarks to the New York Times acerbically summed up his relationship with the media. “I’m going to win another four years… because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there.” The answering outburst of rage and contempt from the media burned all the hotter because the statement was not only intentionally provocative; it was also true. The media has never been able to quit Trump. Its conviction that it can destroy him through coverage has repeatedly proven false. But...

    When distress reports reached U.S. Intelligence in Langley and the Pentagon that the American ambassador to Benghazi and dozens of his diplomatic personnel were under terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11 2012, CIA and Defense Department officials scrambled an immediate response. Officials moved quickly to assemble a counter-terrorism team of professionals to dispatch to Benghazi. That little-known but elite squad, known as the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST), is in fact the government’s sole inter-agency, on call and short notice team trained to respond to any terror-related incident in the world. But not this time. Not in Benghazi. FEST...

  • CNN Not Predicting But Wishing a Heart Attack for the President

    Let’s see how many CNN stars drop with a heart attack or are led off to mental health institutions in the next “3-5 years”. It’s not a CNN ‘prediction’ that President Donald Trump will have a heart attack in “3-5 years”, it’s their wicked, undying wish. It was predictable that CNN would rush to air their bitter disappointment when White House Dr. Danny Jackson gave the president a clean bill of health.
  • Monica Blaming Drudge Shows the Power of Shaming as a "Thought Reform" Tool

    On Drudge Now: Retrospective, Remember When Monica Lewinsky Blamed Bill Clinton Instead of Matt Drudge? The Internet Does.In Lewinsky's warped (or calculated) view of her time in the limelight, she was the world's first victim of "cyberbullying" and Drudge the first perpetrator. Thought Reform, as the Chinese call it--I don't know what the jargon was used by brainwashing technicians in the Stalinist Show Trials--has so long pervaded public discourse, that it's as natural as breathing air. Monica's grief-resolution is typical, helpless victims can't ultimately blame the winners, The Clintons, so they blame the troublemaker who originally highlighted the putrid pustulent...
  • Whatfinger News: What the Drudge Report Was Meant to Be

    Canada Free Press ^ | 01/17/18 | Selwyn Duke
    Whatfinger is the younger, more vibrant up-and-coming contender who only needs a title shot to hoist the belt. I hope it gets it, too, because the current media status quo has conservatives heading for a knockout. In this anti-establishment age, people are increasingly moving toward anti-establishment news sources. Many good examples exist, but as far as news aggregators go, one stands out: Whatfinger News (Whatfinger.com). That’s right, not the Drudge Report. That titan of news-aggregator traffic loses out because of an area in which it may be without peer: providing eyeballs for left-wing websites. More on that momentarily.

    When their oaths to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, it's taken for granted that politicians are also tasked with protecting the life and liberty of those they represent. But when it comes to protecting the public from those who've entered the country illegally and subsequently committed crimes, too many our politicians believe that enforcement of our immigration laws is optional. The problem is countless of Americans have been impacted by the presence of illegal aliens; many have had personal property stolen and they physical damages range from varying degrees of injury from drunk drivers, assault, rapes,...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 1/17/18 | Amity Shlaes
    Tax the rich some more. That recommendation comes from many politicians. It seems obvious to tax the rich. We tell ourselves they won’t miss that little extra bit we take. And after all, it’s only right that they pay their fair share. The technical name for taxing the rich more is progressivity. And it’s hard to oppose a concept that shares its roots with an optimistic word like progress. But this surface logic obscures some important truths about progressivity. So let’s stand back. The first thing we see when we take our distance is surprising. It is that many people...

    Republicans in the Colorado Senate have introduced a bill to repeal the limits placed on magazine capacity in 2013. Here is the summary of SB18-052: The bill repeals statutory provisions: Prohibiting the possession of certain ammunition magazines; and Requiring each of certain ammunition magazines that are manufactured in Colorado on or after July 1, 2013, to include a permanent stamp or marking indicating that the magazine was manufactured or assembled after July 1, 2013. The magazine limits were heavily contested by the Colorado Sheriffs who sued Governor Hickenlooper over the law.  The lawsuit was eventually dismissed, because no one...

    Let our real estate magnate POTUS pull the levers. As Calif becomes 2 states the eastern provinces in Canada fall into our hands because they couldn't survive without Quebec. Call the new state New England and eliminate the 6 already there. 2 west coast senators minus 10 New England's existing states. Does that small region really deserve 12 Senators?

    On Tuesday, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed that DHS had spoken to the Department of Justice to see if they would be able to level criminal charges against representatives of sanctuary cities who failed to cooperate with the deportation of illegal immigrants in their cities. In answering questions, Nielsen mentioned that she did not recall President Trump using the term "shithole countries" to refer to immigrants from Haiti and Africa.  However, she did tell Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), “I don't remember the specific words [Trump used].  What I was struck with, frankly as I'm sure you were as well,...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - The Democrat/fake news media effort to paint President Donald Trump as a racist became the theater of the absurd on Tuesday, thanks to the histrionics of Cory Booker and the lack of self-awareness of Rep. Luis Gutierrez. - In ranting against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during a hearing, the execrable Sen. Booker used language and bullying gestures that would have made any Republican a target of the #Metoo movement. He gets a pass from the fake news media because he’s a Democrat targeting a Republican woman – who we all...

    The sun has indeed set on the British Empire. The British Army of the Light Brigade, the Tommies of the Great War, the Desert Rats in North Africa, the Red Devils at Arnhem, the 2nd PARA in the Falklands, and the famed SAS from Benghazi to Northern Ireland to Afghanistan, is disappearing faster than a DACA deal on Dick Durbin’s desk. Like the US Army, the British Army has been invaded by social justice warriors and liberal clowns who think that diversity is a combat multiplier and sensitivity is the king of battle.

    And until the progressive-left can figure out the way to blame Donald Trump for Saturday’s nuclear button push in Hawaii, the screams of women world-wide will remain the loudest Trump smear of the moment. Harvey Weinstein-like producers of BIG FICTION are releasing a Blockbuster Movie on the 1st Anniversary of the Women’s March. This time Linda Sarsour, Ashley Judd et all will take a back seat to millions of screeching-for-social-justice bit players schooled by the progressive left over the past year. Their amplified message is that the angry white men who run the system have gone from suppressing women to...

    Congressional investigators probing the origins of the Steele dossier have set their sights on a brand new target — The Obama State Department. Were Obama State Department officials responsible for spreading discredited tidbits compiled in the dossier through the media? Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes may soon find out. Byron York of the Washington Examiner reports the Obama State Department is now being probed as to whether or not they had a hand in the dossier. York notes Steele was viewed inside the Obama State Department as a valuable source for intelligence on all things Russia. Obama State officials made a...
