  • Is News Media Avoiding Showing Trump’s Large Crowds?

    Donald Trump has long complained that the news media refuses to show the size of his crowds. (Note: After interviewing him in Florida, we showed the crowd today on Full Measure.) Three questions are at issue: 1. Is the news media treating him differently? 2. How do Trump’s crowds compare to other candidates? 3. Does size matter? 1. Is the news media treating Trump differently? Yes. Trump is correct that the news media doesn’t often show his packed audiences. Neither do they remark much about the size of Hillary Clinton’s crowd. Is this because his audiences are large and hers...

  • CA decriminalizes prostitution for minors after Gov. Brown signs bills to aid trafficking victims

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | September 26, 2016 | Jazmine Ulloa
    Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed more than half a dozen bills that decriminalize prostitution and increase protections for young trafficking victims in court amid growing efforts in California to help children and young adults swept into the trade of forced sex and labor. Among the bills passed were laws that would prohibit the disclosure of victims' personal information, provide victims' services to trafficking witnesses and allow minors under age 16 to testify through closed-circuit televisions in certain cases. But also approved were hotly contested bills that would decriminalize prostitution and allow human trafficking victims to vacate prior convictions and...
  • The Frenzied Leftist Search for Trump's Essential Evil

    The more transparent a leader is with the use of power the more citizens can constrain the abuse of power. On that score, Trump has more political virtue than Hillary The political Left has for quite some time been on a witch-hunt to find the essential evil of Donald Trump that would eliminate him from the presidential race in the minds of voters. Trump has repeatedly been compared to Hitler and Mussolini in an attempt to irrefutably stigmatize him. But to assess the candidates on whether they are essentially evil we need to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate uses of...

  • Isaiah Washington calls on African-Americans to boycott work to protest recent killings

    The New York Daily News ^ | September 22, 2016 | Nicole Bitette
    Actor Isaiah Washington is calling on African-Americans to protest the recent killings of black men by police in a very different way. Washington took to Facebook on Tuesday to suggest that African-Americans across the United States boycott showing up for work on Monday to show that black lives matter in the wake of recent police brutality. "Imagine if every single African American in the United States that was really fed up with being angry, sad and disgusted, would pick ONE DAY to simply 'stay at home' from every single job, work site, sports arena and government office in the United...
  • Identity Politics – Barack Obama Fails Black America With Liberalism

    In 2008 when Barack Obama was elected president, much of America – including millions of white people – thought the election of a black man to the presidency would prove that America had finally overcome its racist past and truly become a colorblind nation. Alas, that was not to be. Not surprisingly, after almost eight years of America’s first black president, America is still a racist place… maybe even more of one. At least in the eyes of the Black Lives Matter movement, Colin Kaepernick and thousands of “protesters” around the country and their millions of fans. The reality is,...

    Hofstra University has posted a “trigger warning” sign to warn students about the potentially disturbing content that may be discussed during Monday night’s presidential debate. According to CBS New York reporter Tony Aiello, a sign inside of the student center at Hofstra reads, “Trigger warning: The event conducted just beyond this sign may contain triggering and/or sensitive material. Sexual violence, sexual assault, and abuse are some topics mentioned within this event. If you feel triggered, please know there are resources to help you.”

    In a U.S. election year that has seen scant public discussion of any substantive issues, beyond the building of walls and the deportation of immigrants, the issue of U.S. energy policy has largely stayed outside the realm of popular discussion. But in advance of the first presidential debate on Monday, September 26, it seems a good idea to review each candidate’s energy positions in as much detail as possible. Republican candidate Donald Trump has recently made energy a key part of his platform, arguing that unlocking a “treasure trove” of American energy resources will boost the economy. He has argued...
  • At Kosher Bakery, Trump Donuts Are Hot Sellers. Clinton Donuts, Not So Much.

    The donut poll at Zishe’s Homemade Bakery in Monsey, New York, is favoring Donald Trump to win the first presidential debate tonight. Zishe’s, a kosher sweet shop in the Orthodox-dominated village in Rockland County, cooked up batches of jelly donuts with Trump and Hillary Clinton’s names on them to mark the much-anticipated first presidential debate. “I sold like ten of the Trump and maybe two of the Clinton,” said a woman who answered the phone at Zishe’s. A picture of the debate display at Zishe’s is circulating on Orthodox WhatsApp groups. “We just wanted to make a joke,” said the...
  • Nate Silver's 538: Trump would win if election were held today

    Dunh-dunh-duuuun Last week, we discussed the fact that Hillary’s odds of victory were collapsing - despite massively outspending her opponent. At the time, her chances of taking the White House had fallen to just over 53%. The data came to us via Nate Silver’s 538 site. Long a favorite among Democrats, Silver is a statistician who rose to national prominence during the 2008 presidential race, when he correctly predicted 49 of 50 state outcomes. In 2012, he went 50 for 50. A month ago, he gave Hillary Clinton a 96% chance of victory. How times have changed:

    Canada Free Press ^ | 09/26/16 | Katy Grimes
    California is a Failure at Business The inconsistencies of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s climate change policies, together with his immigration policies, are formidable and deliberately deceptive — one policy is driving taxpayers and businesses out of the state, and the other is driving droves of unskilled, unemployed aliens into the state. Last year, in 2015, Gov. Jerry Brown claimed California has an overpopulation problem, and the ongoing drought was proof that the explosion of population in California has reached the limit of what the states’ resources can provide. “We are altering this planet with this incredible power of science, technology...

    Knowing that “Without America there is no Free World”, Canada Free Press is starting on those prayers right now Everyone reading this should say a fervent prayer ahead of tonight’s so-called ‘Debate of the Century’ that some kind of semblance of fairness will still be in place even though the debate is being organized by the Democrats in league with the lib-left NBC. As CFPN Liberty Media colleague and YouTube producer Marc Patrone reminded me this afternoon: “Will Hillary have prior access to the debate questions and not Trump? This question needs to be asked.” “The lib media wants to...

    The Trump campaign is dealing with an enemy that does not fight fair and is desperate to hold on to power at any cost. Does anyone out there really believe they’re above this and that Clinton and the media wouldn’t try it? Conservative talk radio is abuzz with questions about how Hillary Clinton is going to avoid getting destroyed in tonight’s debate at the hands of a surging and confident Donald Trump. Think they’ll play fair? Forget it. There’s too much at stake for the Democrats and their media allies to leave anything to chance. They’ll cheat and the easiest...

    We’re living in America 180, where good old American common sense has been thrown out the window and replaced by political correctness, militant feminism and cultural Marxism. The wimps and freaks and the loonies are running the country. Two stories this morning solidified the true nature of the craziness being pushed on the nation by the militant left: The first story was titled, “Parenting Magazine warns Blond, Cheerful Families Dangerous, Probably Right Wing.” Parenting magazine Baby & Family has told readers to beware of families who are “inconspicuous” and “cheerful”, as these warning signs indicate they are right wing and...

    MSNBC unveiled graphics on Monday of the respective “tasks” that presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton need to accomplish at their first debate, including that Trump needs to “stop lying.” MTV national correspondent Jamil Smith appeared on MSNBC to discuss what the candidates need to accomplish Monday night during the debate, and the left-leaning network provided visual displays of his takes. “First thing’s first, he needs to stop lying,” Smith said. “He needs to respect the intelligence of the American people.”

    The first debate will feature only Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—the third party candidates did not qualify. The moderator will divide the debate into six 15-minute time segments. Clinton and Trump will stand at lecterns for the entire 90 minutes, and there will be no commercial breaks.
  • Why the First Presidential Debate May Decide the Election

    Even without the cough–heard–round–the–world With apologies to George Ramos, this year the first presidential debate is the Big Enchilada. Independent voters will finally be tuning in to see both candidates boca–y–boca. This cumulative first impression will probably decide the election. And what will Independents be concerned about? Many are participating in betting pools based on the exact time Hillary will cough, with over–unders on duration and intensity. Not since Ronald Reagan’s second debate with Walter Mondale has candidate health been a primary topic. That was in 1984 and health was a byproduct of the first debate after Reagan appeared to...

    In his speech at the United Nations President Obama said that "in order to realize the promise of the UN, the US must give up freedoms. As we work toward the dream of a world government we have to realize that compromise is necessary. Much of the world is less free than America. We could stubbornly refuse to budge and try to hold onto our special status. Or we could be more adult and recognize we have to meet the unfree segment halfway." "For example, freedom of speech and religion are not as common elsewhere," Obama pointed out. "We can't...
