  • Trump Campaign T-shirts Condemned for Displaying 'Nazi-Inspired' Symbol (Nutty Leftists and RINOs Alert)

    Newsweek ^ | July 2, 2020 | Brendan Cole
    Social media users have condemned merchandise promoting President Donald Trump's re-election campaign, saying it is reminiscent of Nazi imagery. Available for both men and women, a 100-percent cotton T-shirt retailing for $30 carries the words "America First" above an image of an eagle looking to its left with spread out wings and its talons holding a circular version of the American flag. Available on Trump's re-election campaign website, the product description says that it is "proudly made in the USA" and appeals to would-be buyers to show their support for re-electing the incumbent president, with the message: "Let everyone know...

    When the authorities suggested that two black men whose bodies were found hanging from trees in two Southern California cities had died by suicide, many community activists did not buy it. Their fear: The men had been lynched. But family members of 38-year-old Malcolm Harsch, one of the two men, said through a spokesman that after reviewing video footage provided by the police, they were now convinced that he died by suicide. Mr. Harsch was found on May 31 in Victorville, Calif., near a homeless encampment where he was living. Family members of 24-year-old Robert Fuller, the other man whose...
  • Oversight Committee Democrats demand DHS, DOJ investigate white supremacist involvement in protests

    Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee are requesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launch an investigation into reports of white supremacist groups interfering to instigate violence at peaceful protests. The Democrats said the Trump administration is making baseless accusations that antifa is involved in an “effort to delegitimize” the peaceful protests and to “win cheap political points” while ignoring the involvement of white supremacist groups. “The Trump Administration’s decision to ignore the involvement of white supremacist groups in these protests in favor of spreading wildly exaggerated rumors about Antifa has only...

    The Hill ^ | 06 04 2020 | Joe Concha
    President Trump lashed out at the New York Times in an early morning tweet on Thursday, calling it a "fake newspaper" after his campaign flagged the publication for altering a headline that some Democratic lawmakers deemed favorable to the president. "As Chaos Spreads, Trump Vows to 'End It Now,'" the initial Tuesday print edition headline read on a report regarding looting, vandalism, arson and violence in many major cities across the country following the death of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis after a police officer knelt on his neck for eight minutes. After some Democratic lawmakers and presumptive Democratic presidential...

    Daily Caller ^ | 31 May 2020 | Virginia Kruter
    As riots take hold of major cities across the nation, Democrats have brought out the usual suspects in an effort to lay blame for the chaos and destruction. The massive protests were initially peaceful as people rallied over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck. Chauvin was later fired — along with the three other officers in the viral video of Floyd’s arrest — and he was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. But as the protests turned violent and rioters began to...

    He was at a crossroads, his life stretching out before him, his troubles largely behind him. He had enrolled at South Georgia Technical College, preparing to become an electrician, just like his uncles. But first, he decided, he would take a break. College could wait until the fall. To help keep his head clear, he ran, just about every day. Off he’d go, out of the doors of his mother’s house, down the long street toward Fancy Bluff Road. Then would come the right turn onto the two-lane road lined by oak trees draped with Spanish moss. About a mile...

    We the media have "fact-checked" President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet, and he's certainly given us plenty to write about. That's probably why it's so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and "lies." But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we've largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago. Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump's claims are "lies" when they are matters of...

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department’s decision to drop the criminal case against Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, even though he had twice pleaded guilty to lying to investigators, was extraordinary and had no obvious precedent, a range of criminal law specialists said on Thursday. “I’ve been practicing for more time than I care to admit and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Julie O’Sullivan, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches criminal law at Georgetown University. The move is the latest in a series that the department, under Attorney General William P. Barr, has taken...

    The National Review ^ | 04/21/2020 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    Although there is still much we don’t know about the coronavirus, we know enough to say that it is far more dangerous and deadly than the flu. It took twelve months and 61 million infections for the H1N1 swine flu to kill 12,500 Americans in 2009–10. The Centers for Disease Control estimated that the seasonal flu killed 34,200 Americans during the 2018–19 flu season. In 2019, car crashes killed 38,800 Americans. As for the new coronavirus? On March 20, the death toll in the United States was 225. By April 20, the coronavirus had killed more than 42,000 Americans.

    Breitbart ^ | 19 Apr 2020 | Joel B. Pollak
    The New York Times suggested Saturday that statements by Sean Hannity of Fox News helped encourage a Brooklyn bar owner to take a cruise regardless of the risk of coronavirus, which killed him. The headline of the article, as it appeared in the Sunday print edition, was: “‘Fake News’ and a Possibly Ill-Fated Trip.” (The online headline: “A Beloved Bar Owner Was Skeptical About the Virus. Then He Took a Cruise.”) The problem: the Times quoted a remark Hannity made eight days after the man left for the cruise. Later, the Times inserted that information as a comment from Fox...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon trashed President Trump on Tuesday night for referring to himself as a "cheerleader" for the country amid the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier at the White House press briefing, Trump reiterated his optimism and hopes to reopen the economy, saying he thinks a president "has to be a cheerleader for the country" while taking strong measures to combat the virus, pointing to his travel ban from China in January. That didn't sit well with the "CNN Tonight" anchor.

    CNN anchor Anderson Cooper had some harsh words for President Trump on Monday night, accusing him of "hijacking" his own White House coronavirus task force press briefing. "If you tuned into it hoping you were going to hear from the country's top scientists, you were likely disappointed," Cooper began. "What you mostly heard was the president. And what you saw was a hijacking. A hijacking of the task force press conference by a president determined to rewrite the history of his early and reprehensibly irresponsible response to this virus. What the president showed us today is what the nation's top...

    The push in the U.S. pandemic epicenter follows the president’s declaration that he ‘feels good’ about compounds with unproven efficacy, hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. New York is moving at unprecedented speed and scale in a human experiment to distribute tens of thousands of doses of anti-malarial drugs to seriously ill patients, spurred by political leaders including President Trump to try a treatment that is not proved to be effective against the coronavirus. With no proven treatment for the coronavirus, and infections in New York topping 30,000, health experts say the Food and Drug Administration has moved with uncommon speed to authorize...

    New York State is about to begin testing drugs for treatment of coronavirus, Gov. Cuomo said Sunday. The feds have given the state 70,000 doses of hydroxychloroquine, 10,000 doses of zithromax and 750,000 doses of chloroquine. Testing will kick off Tuesday, Cuomo said. “The president is optimistic about these drugs and we are all optimistic that it could work,” the governor said at a press conference. “I’ve spoken with a number of health officials and there is a good basis to believe that they could work.”

    Looks like eco-extremists in the liberal media aren’t the only ones who’ll use the coronavirus pandemic to push their climate change talking points. Now, The Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “conservative” opinion writer is using the pandemic to spew the same eco-propaganda nonsense others on the left have at President Donald Trump and Republicans. Jennifer Rubin wrote a column headlined “Can the Coronavirus Obliterate Some Republican Myths?” She babbled that the much-hyped “climate-change crisis” finds a “parallel in the global covid-19 pandemic.” “Both the pandemic and climate change are inescapable facts with deadly outcomes unless our behavior radically changes,” Rubin quipped.

    Many Indians lack the documents needed to prove citizenship—and Muslims are in the firing line. Firoza Bano, 50, sat worried in her home in the northern Indian city of Jaipur. Born in the north Indian state of Rajasthan in 1970, she has barely traveled outside the state—but now she faces the possibility of being kicked out of her home country. The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the proposed all-India National Register of Citizens (NRC) will require Bano to prove she’s Indian. If she’s unable to produce the requisite documents, she might lose her citizenship and be declared an infiltrator. At...

    WASHINGTON -- Jay Sekulow, one of President Donald Trump’s lead attorneys during the impeachment trial, is being paid for his legal work through a rented $80-a-month mailbox a block away from the White House. The Pennsylvania Avenue box appears to be the sole physical location of the Constitutional Litigation and Advocacy Group, a for-profit corporation co-owned by Sekulow. The firm has no website and is not listed in national legal directories. The District of Columbia Bar has no record of it, and no attorneys list it as their employer. But Sekulow, 63, is registered as chief counsel at the American...

    Donald Trump has always been a man of absolutes. Something is the best or the worst, a person is a winner or a total loser, an event has never happened before, even when it has. Absolutism was the unwritten credo of his career in business and is the guiding light of his presidency as he makes an assertion rarely heard from an American president: that he can do as he pleases. Now that approach faces its ultimate test as a foundation of Trump’s defense in his impeachment trial, namely that he is cloaked with unrestrained authority. How that question is...
