    I am sick of the media being the story every single day. There is only 10% Trump and what has happened that day, and 90% the media reaction to it and how it is so awful and they can't believe he is doing that and how he's like Hitler. Every. Single. Day. The Media drives the daily news stories, and their reaction to how horrible it is is the discussion topic every day. And the people have to listen to ONLY what the media decide about it, and what the media want to talk about that day, which is usually...
  • How the Asbestos Hysteria Led to the Grenfell Tragedy

    Too late for asbestos; it will never be brought back. But there's always the hysteria that will beset us tomorrow... There was no single cause of the tragic 24-story Grenfell Tower conflagration in London. The British newspaper The Telegraph lists eight factors, including lack of dual staircases, lack of sprinklers both outside and inside, and sub-standard fire doors—none of which at this time appear to have violated the law. But nothing contributed more to the sheer speed of the spread, blocking both exits and preventing rescues, and hence the horrific death toll, than what’s called “cladding.” That’s a covering or...

    We will all remember the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood as the day they tried to install pro-abortion warrior Jon Ossoff in Congress, but ended up being ‘referendumed’ instead If the truth, rather than media propaganda got to tell the story, this is what really went down in Tuesday’s special Georgia election: Planned Parenthood poured big money in trying to elect Democrat pro-abortion crusader Jon Ossoff to Congress in Tuesday’s special election in Georgia—but ended up instead aborting aborting his election chances.

    Gun Watch ^ | 14 June, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    On 6 June, 2017, at a quiet residential home in Fresno, California, a home invasion resulted in a gunfight . The 30 -year-old  victim who fought back was wounded, two home invaders were killed, as was another victim, the father of the wounded defender. Another man was wounded. His name was not released. The defensive firearm used was described as an AR-15. From Yang said the family was preparing to celebrate her brother-in-law's birthday when in the early morning two armed suspects walked through their front door. The father, 69-year-old Chong Yee Yang, hollered to warn his children--...

    Imprimis -- Hillsdale College Publication ^ | 6/22/2017 | Michael Goodwin
    Received the free bi-monthly Hillsdale College Imprimis and found an excellent story by Michael Goodwin, columnist for the New York Post, entitled: The 2016 Election and the Demise of Journalistic Standards. In the story, Goodwin, former NYT reporter himself, is pretty frank about how low the New York Times sank during the 2016 election: "If I haven't made it clear, let me do so now. The behavior of much of the media, but especially the New York Times was a disgrace. I don't believe it ever will recover the public trust it squandered." However, Goodwin harks back to a...

    Okay, so I insinuated it without “evidence.” So what. So, it was a “gut level call.” But, I was right. Right? I was probably right, then; and, I am probably right, now, about the following: If you stabbed a police officer, and were captured or killed, then I, as the investigator—even as the lowly private eye that I was—in theory, I could have your entire background via public records database search for about $60—in about 15 minutes... ...I could have your mother sweating in an interview room, downtown, in an about hour. I could know your so-called, “motive,” in no...

    American Thinker contributor Thomas Lifson writes of the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise: Update: GOP Congressman Shot It was approximately two hours after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in Tucson, Ariz. by Jared Loughner, an insane man, that the left media began a campaign against the "climate of hate" allegedly fostered by, in particular, Sarah Palin. Remember the crosshairs on a map of districts targeted for GOP wins? With the cultural grandees of New York indulging in theatrical renditions of President Trump being bloodily stabbed, there is certainly a climate of hate now. It is time for a little reflection...

    WHO goes around stabbing people in the neck? WHO are trained to specifically stab people in the neck? Witnesses say the officer was stabbed in the neck, although information as to what led to the incident was not immediately available. State police troopers, along with agents from the FBI and ATF are on the scene investigating.
  • The end of the valedictorian? Schools rethink class rankings

    AP ^ | June 15, 2017
    At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold — using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by large differences...

    Democrats will be tearing their own hair out now that the citizenry can clearly see what they are. Stay safe America So-called ‘White Obama’ Jon Ossoff’s defeat in the special election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional district yesterday makes it clear that the Democrats are going down in the water for the third time with no lifeguard coming to save them. Resistance leaders Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the hordes of entertainment industry celebrities, mainstream media puppets, their hate-spewing and violence are killing the Democrat Party and driving it deeper into exile.

    Who are the terrorists? Depending on who happens to wield the weapon of choice (be it gun, knife, bomb or motor vehicle) there seems to be a real dispute regarding the label’s application. Officials sit on their hands before calling it terrorism when it comes to dozens and hundreds (Paris 11/13/15) of Christians, conservatives, concert-goers or baseball fans losing life and limb. Monday morning’s incident of a van driver mowing down individuals outside of a Finsbury Park mosque in North London was a different story. Politically correct officials had no compunction applying the term terrorist to the vehicle’s operator that...
  • Trump’s Nationalism Is Consistent With Catholic Social Doctrine

    The American Spectator ^ | June 21, 2017 | Robert C. Koons
    Catholic voters know better than their bishops, it would seem. Leading American bishops have complained about the “harshness” of Trump’s campaign rhetoric and called for an end to deportation of aliens until the “broken” system can be fixed. Yet, despite this opposition from the Church’s hierarchy, Trump won 52% of the Catholic vote (to Hillary’s 45%), a historic margin for a Republican. How to explain this contradiction? Real simple. The laity get it better than the bishops. Trump’s nationalism is fully consistent with Catholic social doctrine as it has developed in the last 126 years. It is the leaders of...

    All need to remember Thomas Jefferson's words: "I have sworn on the altar of God eternal enmity against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." Nothing will change until you do Free speech is under assault in America. And in California, free speech is being bushwhacked. People are attacked just for having patriotic bumper stickers on their cars. Trump supporters who attend rallies are threatened, assaulted, beat up, and in a weekend attack in Santa Monica, a 28-year old man was knifed nine times! The only people being attacked are Trump supporters. The media lie “both sides do...

    Strathclyde University sent an email to 650 “multi-cultural” students and staff after janitors complained about “people pooing in bins, showers and the likes” and apparently not knowing there were toilets designed for such personal business. The memo was emailed last week by the operations management team of the University's state-of-the-art Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) to its 400 students and staff of 250.

    """Antifa Website Encourages ‘All Manner of Physical Violence’ Against Trump Supporters and Capitalists""" The Antifa website It’s Going Down has become the de facto resource for anarchists and “anti-fascist” activists currently engaging in sporadic street battles across the United States against Trump supporters and the government. The site calls for violence against capitalists and anyone it labels a “fascist.” It features posters for self-identified anarchists that call for Trump supporters to be stabbed. A poster published in April shows the silhouette of a man with a Make America Great Again hat and a Pepe the Frog lapel pin being cornered...

    "Never complain, never explain" was Disraeli's advice, and that holds as good in our touchy age of instant Twitterstorms and politically correct eggshells as it did when he first commended it to Queen Victoria. It's good advice for the Queen's viceroys, too. Consider by way of a cautionary tale the Rt Hon David Johnston, Governor General of Canada. Full disclosure: I am not a great fan of His Excellency, as I thought he behaved disgracefully in evicting my old boss Conrad Black from the Privy Council and the Order of Canada. Nevertheless, he occupies the second highest office in the...

    How the Federal Government & Big Media Collude in the Deep State Since Donald Trump introduced “The Swamp,” it’ become American slang for the corrupt and secretive underbelly of the Washington, D.C. Deep State. One Swamp secret is the whole truth of Denny Hastert’ life as a pederast. And, we are unlikely to ever know it—the whole truth. John Dennis Hastert (DOB: January 2, 1942) quit his high school teaching and coaching position in Yorkville, Illinois, held from 1965-1981, to become a politician. Eventually, from 1999-2007, he was the longest-serving Republican Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in American...

    Godspeed, America! Five months after his blatantly hypocritical ‘I-wish-the-new-president-well’ departure from the White House, Organizing for America is raising money for Obama as Leader of the Resistance poised to take President Donald Trump down. Organizing for America and spinoff Organizing for Action—one and the same—is the chief fundraiser organization for Obama in private life: renegade rabble rouser for the progressive left’s planned re-takeover of a largely unsuspecting America.

    CD2 is a heavily Democrat Colorado Congressional district that includes Boulder, Colorado. Boulder is a very left leaning University town. The person who wins the Democrat primary will almost certainly win the Congressional seat. Shannon Watts owns property there.  She may use her anti-rights work for Michael Bloomberg in an attempt to lever herself into Congress. On June 12, 2019 Shannon Watts said she was looking at running for the seat in 2018.  From Within hours of U.S. Rep. Jared Polis formally announcing his run for Colorado governor, two Democrats — Ken Toltz and Shannon Watts, both gun-control...
