    Christians demand that 65% of characters on TV and the movies be Christian and that they be portrayed in a positive light. Christians demand that 65% of students enrolled in all colleges be Christian. Christians demand that 65% of all college and elementary and secondary school teachers be Christian. Christians demand that 65% of all actors and actresses on TV be Christian. Christians demand that 65% percent of all TV and movie scripts have Christian content. Christians demand that 65% of all professional athletes be Christian. Et al. Why don't we see headlines like this?
  • Another Epic Failed Hearing for the Democrats, Another Mass Killing

    Just a coincidence, no doubt. – So, with their corrupt media cohorts struggling to spin their disastrous first day of impeachment circus hearings to their advantage, the Democrats were desperate all Thursday morning to change the narrative. There were no bombshells in the testimony of either Bill Taylor or the dapper dandy George Kent, no revelations of anything resembling impeachable behavior by President Donald Trump, nothing for anyone in the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation to hang their rhetorical hats on. As a result, it was a very slow news morning for America for once. And then it all magically...
  • Report: Wallace Earns ‘Circus Clown’ Status By Declaring Impeachment Debacle was ‘Damaging’ To Trump

    Why is Chris Wallace allowing his hatred for President Trump to destroy his reputation and his career? This man was a once well-respected “fair and balanced” journalist, who now looks like a dancing bear for the Democrats, as he put his biased anti-Trump spin on everything. You listen to this guy’s analysis and you have to wonder if you’re on the same planet. Yesterday’s impeachment hearing was a disaster for Democrats – mainly for Pelosi and Schiff. Forget that the spectacle was a pointless snore-fest that was a colossal waste of money and time. The real issue is that Democrats...

    Two-thirds of Americans say the use of marijuana should be legal, reflecting a steady increase over the past decade, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The share of U.S. adults who oppose legalization has fallen from 52% in 2010 to 32% today. Meanwhile, an overwhelming majority of U.S. adults (91%) say marijuana should be legal either for medical and recreational use (59%) or that it should be legal just for medical use (32%). Fewer than one-in-ten (8%) prefer to keep marijuana illegal in all circumstances, according to the survey, conducted Sept. 3 to 15 on Pew Research Center’s...

    The largest outside group supporting President Trump’s reelection believes it’s identified some of the “hidden” supporters that could tip the balance of the 2020 election in favor of Republicans. Pollsters hired by America First Policies (AFP) have spent the past two months interviewing hundreds of self-described independent voters at focus groups conducted in major cities across nine battleground states. A source close to the group shared videos of the interviews with The Hill, which featured Trump voters from 2016 revealing that they would not discuss their support for the president with pollsters or acquaintances because they were afraid of backlash...

    Washington (CNN)Dramatic new disclosures on Day 1 of the House impeachment hearings painted an incriminating picture of Donald Trump as a President instinctively willing to sacrifice America's interests for his own. In the most critical step so far in the investigation into Trump's alleged scheme to coerce Ukraine's help for his reelection campaign, Democrats posed a question to every US citizen at the core of this dark national chapter. "If this is not impeachable conduct, what is?" House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, asked, arguing that the republic's values and the concept of an accountable presidency were at...

    So, the Democrats are going to give us two weeks of this? Really??? – In all seriousness, is this all there is? A parade of career bureaucrats and diplomats, some of whom – like Bill Taylor – are probably well-intentioned, and some of whom – like the dapper dandy George Kent – are obvious career deep state hacks attempting to undermine a President they don’t like, spending all day long whining about the fact that they were “concerned” about a policy approach to Ukraine that they, the unelected bureaucrats and diplomats, did not approve of? The Democrats went into today...

    In head-to-head matchups, former Vice President Joe Biden ran strongest against Trump, leading the president 51% to 43%, fueled by solid support from women and independents. Other matchups against South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are much tighter. The findings provide an early snapshot of the developing race in Georgia one year out from the election and strengthens claims that the state will be a 2020 battleground. *** For Democrats, the most encouraging finding might be the shift of independents, a largely white bloc of voters that has traditionally leaned...

    Bigotry. Fascism. A threat to women’s rights. Alliances with foreign dictators. A president as entertainer, trampling labor and the environment. It sounds like the contemporary complaints against President Trump. Actually, it’s a 1984 newspaper advertisement from “Scholars Against the Escalating Danger of the Far Right.” “With Ronald Reagan as its performing star in the White House, the Far Right is attempting to take over the Republican Party,” says the ad, published in the November 2, 1984, New York Times and signed by, among others, Carl Sagan, Linus Pauling, Corliss Lamont, Stephen Jay Gould, John Hope Franklin, Gloria Steinem, and Frances...

    Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. For a variety of reasons, the 2020 election is going to be a referendum beyond Donald Trump’s record and his Democratic opposition. The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism. The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse. Online trolls...

    The Justice Department begged a federal judge to not tell Fox News reporter James Rosen that it was tracking his telephone calls and emails in a probe regarding a national security leak. U.S. Attorney Ron Machen argued in 2010 that the traditional 30-day notice period did not apply to Rosen as Justice secretly monitored his Gmail account, according to new exhibits unsealed this week and disclosed by The Hill. “Where, as here, the government seeks such contents through a search warrant, no notice to the subscriber or customer of the e-mail account is statutorily required or necessary,” Machen wrote in...

    Vice President Joe Biden's aides were worried about "the optics" of his son, Hunter, working for a Ukrainian energy company in 2014, but they refused to raise the issue so as to not risk "a scolding" from the elder Biden, according to a report by The New York Times. The aides "enlisted State Department officials to gather facts to determine how to handle the story" of Hunter Biden's work on the board of Burisma Holdings, to which he was appointed that year, the Times reported Sunday. "Hunter Biden's activities struck many of the officials working on Ukraine policy as an...
  • As “America The Great” Fights; Trump-Hatred Soars

    11/11/2019 12:05:05 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 20 replies
    It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that. Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They scoff at the idea of a bright shining city on a hill. And that means that this battle right now, today, is far bigger than Donald Trump, although he is an avatar for it. This battle is about whether America remains America — or the...

Every time they’ve gone public, when they’re really feeling their oats, it has blown up in their faces.

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is considering making a late run for the Democratic presidential nomination, according to two people with knowledge of his deliberations. Patrick, a close friend and ally of former President Barack Obama, ruled out a presidential bid earlier this year but has since been talking with Democratic operatives and donors about launching a campaign. His deliberations come as some Democrats express uncertainty about the party’s current crop of contenders. Patrick has not made a final decision on whether to run and faces fast-approaching deadlines to get on the ballot in key states. New Hampshire, the first...

    House Democrats’ impeachment equation of maximum control and minimum risk is reversing. Now that Democrats have begun what they had only been pretending - real impeachment - their control will decrease, and their risk will increase. **SNIP** Now that Democrats have decided to pursue impeachment, things will change quickly. Voting on articles of impeachment will magnify their risks further. Will these be stringent enough for the extremists? Will they be too stringent for the moderates? In either case, their vulnerables again will have to vote and forever be on record that they believe the president should be removed. From there...

    One week after “Motherless Brooklyn” disappointed the box office, Warner Bros. has yet another flop in the form of “Doctor Sleep.” The Mike Flanagan-directed horror film based on Stephen King’s “The Shining” sequel was tracking for a debut in the $25 million range, but its opening weekend came in well below that mark with a dismal $14 million total. While “Doctor Sleep’s” $50 million production is a saving grace, Deadline reports the film is expected to lose between $20 million and $30 million for Warner Bros. “Doctor Sleep” now joins “The Goldfinch,” “Gemini Man,” and “Terminator: Dark Fate” as one...
