  • The weekend America's newspapers called Donald Trump a liar

    CNN ^ | 26 Sep 2016 | Brian Stetler
    On the weekend leading up to 2016's first presidential debate, four news organizations came to a similar and sweeping conclusion: Donald Trump lies more often than Hillary Clinton. In a normal election year this would be extraordinary. On Sunday editors and reporters at the newsrooms used another word: necessary. The New York Times story — "A Week of Whoppers" — came out first on Saturday. Politico, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times all followed within hours. Several of the editors who were involved said the timing was a coincidence. But there was clearly a desire to publish stories...

    Hillary has no chance to win on issues or leadership. She has done nothing but wreck countries and leave Americans begging for help for 13 hours, and she can only promise more tax and spend at a time when America is saddled with debt and barely getting by on an anemic 1% GDP. So its high time for another one of those infamous Clinton Camp all-nighters with Diet Coke and Pizza to cook up some rhetoric to change the appearance of things, or as we like to call it: "Moving the Goal Posts for Hillary". In this episode, the casual...

The polls gain your confidence, then just like Lucy and charlie brown, they yank the football from you at the last minute. The Clintons attacked Dole with polls slanted as much as 25%. They will use polls as campaign propaganda again. Make no mistake about this people, polls are nothing more than a cheap magic trick and there is no science involved. Do Not Be Fooled!

    CNN’s Jake Tapper asked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on State of the Union on Sunday morning about the supposed contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in their responses to the explosions Saturday in New York, editing out Clinton’s reference to “bombings” to create a false distinction. Tapper cited Trump referring to a “bomb” in New York, then played a clip of Clinton criticizing him for saying that — leaving out Clinton’s reference, seconds before, to what she called “bombings.” Here is the Tapper’s question for Christie, with the edited Clinton clip: Tapper: There is a contrast, I would...

The lesson plan — which comes complete with “safe space” suggestions — is offered by way of a section of the taxpayer-funded television station’s website called “The Lowdown” (“connecting newsroom to classroom”). The lesson, released this week, centers around a graphic comic entitled “Fear of Foreigners: A...

It is deplorable to demean a Gold Star family and propose to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. It is deplorable for a candidate for president of a major party to kick off his campaign by labeling most Mexicans as rapists and murderers. It is deplorable when the Justice Department feels it has to sue you a second time for racial discrimination because you didn't get the hint the first time.

The pro-communist, anti-cop, anti-American, pro-Black Lives Matter message was drilled into the staff of the combined schools, according to the teacher. To kick it off, all teachers were given a T-shirt with a quote from Che Guevara, the man with the Marxist plan for Argentina, who said “The true Revolution is guided by a great feeling of love.”...

The first-term senator, then 47, had no meaningful national security experience, a liability Hillary Clinton had highlighted throughout the Democratic primaries. And he happened to be vacationing in Hawaii. Campaigning in Pennsylvania, John McCain recounted a phone call he had just had with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. "Today, we are all Georgians,” the hawkish war hero said, drawing cheers from the crowd of several thousand. The Obama team was worried about losing voters of Eastern European descent as a result of McCain's hard-line rhetoric...

    HAS the party of Lincoln just nominated a racist to be president? We shouldn’t toss around such accusations lightly, so I’ve looked back over more than 40 years of Donald Trump’s career to see what the record says. One early red flag arose in 1973, when President Richard Nixon’s Justice Department — not exactly the radicals of the day — sued Trump and his father, Fred Trump, for systematically discriminating against blacks in housing rentals. I’ve waded through 1,021 pages of documents from that legal battle, and they are devastating. Donald Trump was then president of the family real estate...

    It’s time for Republican leaders to consider a negotiated endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Barring a Wikileaks revelation showing Clinton to be a secret member of ISIS, she seems to be on a glide path to the White House. Instead of Donald Trump attempting to expand his base since securing the Republican nomination, he is politically self-immolating on a national stage. Trump apologists keep saying he will soon change course. But the only way for Trump to change course is to change who he is. That’s not going to happen.

Nate Silver of the FiveThirtyEight website currently lists Donald Trump as a heavy favorite in South Carolina, saying the Republican has a 58.8 percent chance of winning the state. But that number has dropped precipitously in the past week. On July 30, Trump had a 84.9 percent likelihood of winning South Carolina in FiveThirtyEight’s projections. Since then, however, the odds have dropped steadily, a loss of more than 25 points over a nine-day period. At the same time, FiveThirtyEight projects a tightening...

    The mainstream media is wild with enthusiasm these days over Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim soldier, Humayun Khan, who was killed fighting in Iraq in 2004. Khizr Khan, brimming with self-righteous anger, spoke at the Democratic National Convention, where he delivered what the Washington Post dubbed a “brutal repudiation of Donald Trump.” Trump responded, elevating Khizr Khan to the status of full-fledged flavor-of-the-moment media celebrity. There’s just one catch: Khizr is using his son’s memory not to advance the cause of the United States, as his son apparently died trying to do, but to advance a quite different...

    This article is about technical errors in the immensely popular Indian movie Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. The movie is filmed VERY well, but has quite a few technical errors. It is still appealing (especially to Indians) due to some culture reasons I won't cover here. However, in the Netflix version I just watched, there is a GLARING error. In the dialogue, as some women are talking, one says "By the will of god" and it is translated "Allah". Then later, in reference to a HINDU holiday, the woman says, per the caption, "...celebrating EID" which is a MUSLIM holiday. The...

    Voting is partially a social endeavor, in which people consider the opinions of others when making up their own minds. Increasingly, though, they’re being influenced by an inhuman force: software robots specifically designed to deceive them. Lest democracy be undermined, humans need help in distinguishing their brethren from the bots. Two years ago, in a report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the social networking site Twitter estimated that more than 23 million of its active user accounts were being run by “bots” — software agents or bits of code that act on their own to respond to...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    In the aftermath of the mass shooting of a dozen police officers in Dallas this week, some conservatives rushed to lay blame for the incident at the feet of the Obama administration. Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh said on Twitter that "Obama's words & [Black Lives Matter]'s deeds have gotten cops killed." Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.) said, "the spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president" contributed to the killings. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said the shooting had "roots" in the "anti-white/cop events illuminated by Obama." These statements are part of a broader narrative of a...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement three years ago, many white Americans have wrestled with how to respond. Some chose racist-tinged ridicule. Others, by word or deed, sought to show solidarity as blacks protested the deaths of fellow blacks in encounters with police. Still others, untouched personally, watched from a distance in silence. This past week, as graphic videos portrayed two more such deaths and five police officers were slain at a march in Dallas protesting the killings, whites have joined blacks in forceful calls for unity that cut across color lines.

    NATO took command of a U.S.-built missile shield in Europe on Friday after France won assurances that the multi-billion-dollar system would not be under Washington’s direct control. The missile shield, billed as a defense against any strike by a “rogue state” against European cities, is one of the most sensitive aspects of U.S. military support for Europe. Russia says the system is in fact intended by Washington to blunt its nuclear arsenal, which the U.S. denies. “Today we have decided to declare initial operational capability of the NATO ballistic missile defense system,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference....
