  • NeoCon Hack John Bolton Calls on GOP to Purge Trump: A Totally Tone Deaf Call Given Almost 72% of Republican voters believe the party should be more like Trump

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton, a prominent NeoCon who became a harsh critic of President Trump after leaving his administration, has called on the GOP to purge the “taint” of Trumpism from the party. “There has to be a serious conversation in the Republican Party about how to remove the taint of what Trump has done, how to repair the damage,” he said during an interview with MSNBC’s Katy Tur. “And while I think the damage is considerable, I think it can be repaired, and it should be repaired. And it should be — from the purely limited perspective...

    A poll conducted by Gallup and the Knight Foundation found widespread distrust of media reporting among Americans. 73% of respondents found too much bias in so-called news reporting. 84% blamed the media for fomenting divisiveness. 75% of Republicans and 52% of independents have an unfavorable view of the media. 70% of Democrats feel the media is treated unfairly. Chelsea Aardvark, one of the so-called fact checkers at the Washington Post gave the poll results "four pinocchios." "The average person is unqualified to judge the accuracy or bias of any news source," she said. "Much of what is reported today comes...
  • His 'Deplorables' Moment: Joe Biden Says ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans ‘Not Very Good People’ While Slamming Trump’s Divisiveness

    Former vice president Joe Biden estimated Thursday that about “10 to 15 percent of the people out there” are “just not very good people” and accused President Trump of dividing the nation, adding that as president he would bring Americans together. “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Biden said during a Young Americans discussion with a group of black supporters that was moderated by actor Don Cheadle. “Do we really think this is as good as we...

    KYIV, Ukraine—As the Russian shells and rockets rained down on them in the frontline town of Debaltseve in February 2015, Ukrainian troops began to receive curious, anonymous text messages on their cellphones. “Your comrades nearby already left their positions, so you should leave yours as well,” one message read. The messages also claimed that Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine’s president at that time, as well as Ukrainian military commanders, had “betrayed” their soldiers. The Ukrainian military later concluded that Russian military forces had taken over the local cellphone network with mobile jamming stations. The text messages were part of a psychological operation...

    Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Twitter bio declares her the “Unbossed Congresswoman” for Michigan’s 13th District. While the moniker has roots in Shirley Chisholm’s successful campaign to become the first black congresswoman, nowadays it also could be seen as a blunt message to Democratic leadership: Nobody is bossing around the class of 2019. And that’s a problem for party bosses. On everything from the Green New Deal to impeachment to criticism of Israel, a squad of first-year congresswomen are flexing their muscle and posing an implicit challenge to Democratic honchos like Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Their stridently liberal agenda – and power...

    Those who fan the flames of divisiveness and disunity within this nation, do not rest on the foundation of Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy In the wake of the day designated to honor the contributions of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., intelligent Americans can wonder about the legacy of this incredible man of God. And, the embattled political spheres demonstrated they are not prepared to see the same vision as Dr. King. Even if only the “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial is used as a measuring stick, one can understand the words and intent that...
  • Obama Foundation seeks a ‘diversity consultant’

    Evidently, systemic racism (or “white privilege” or whatever) is so pervasive that the closet racism of the Obama Foundation needs a corrective force. How else to explain this “Request for Proposals” for a diversity consultant. So, it seems that without a special executive focused on nothing but racial (and sexual and ?) bean counting, the wrong people (this means you, heterosexual white males!) might receive contracts based on price and quality, as if these were the only important factors. In a PR release, the Obama Foundation reveals its “ambitious” goals for preferences:
  • 'Ethnicity: Italian or Sicilian?' UK schools provoke row with online form

    11/05/2016 5:07:32 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 52 replies
    The Italian Ambassador to the UK has intervened after parents complained about the distinction made between Italy, Sicily and Naples in school district questionnaires. When selecting their ethnicity from a drop-down menu on school district websites, Italians in the UK faced a surprising choice. They were asked to define themselves as either 'Italian', 'Italian - Sicilian', 'Italian - Neapolitan' or 'Italian - Other'. Complaints initially came from parents in Bradford, north England, but it became clear this was not an isolated case, and that several school districts in England and Wales differentiated between northern and southern Italians. The Italian Embassy...

    Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through...
  • 5 Reasons Donald Trump Should Focus On The White Vote

    Prepare to be mindblown. A black dude is going to tell you why the GOP’s winning strategy is to focus like a laser on the white vote. One key result of the increased polarization happening in America under President Obama is that Republicans have a chance to decisively capture the white vote in a historic fashion. In fact, the key to a Trump victory will be the white vote, not the Hispanic vote, the black vote, or any other vote. Why? For one, the Democratic Party has already lost the white vote, and lost it big. Mitt Romney won the...

    The Federalist ^ | February 16, 2016 | Georgi Boorman
    America needs a leader who has proven he will execute their priorities in service of controlling government so the people can shine. Ted Cruz is that. The media continue to spin the narrative that Ted Cruz is "divisive," implying he wouldn't be an effective president. Radio host Michael Medved, whom I respect and grew up listening to, commented just the other day that people like Cruz never become president. He said the hypothetical of a Cruz presidency was "interesting," but Medved wasn't convinced Cruz could be effective given the anger he tends to inspire in long-time politicians. I respectfully disagree...

    There have been some pretty potent reactions in the alternative press to Judge Andrew Napolitano’s WND column of July 1, “Hillary’s secret war.” In it, the judge analyzes a shocking interview with an international arms dealer that centers around the man’s dealings with the State Department under Hillary Clinton, as well as evidence in the same vein that has surfaced through other sources, Clinton’s destruction of emails covering that period and testimony she gave at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee in January of 2013. Napolitano is one of the first of his stature and background in the...

    Assuming they can take a break from bitterly clinging to their guns and religion for a few minutes, I’m going to set a bona fide goal for those liberty-loving Americans out there with a passion for our founding principles and the Constitution. What may surprise some in that camp is that it’s the very same goal toward which those on the political left strive. At first blush, some of these patriots – perhaps many – will find this goal rhetorically indelicate, if not undemocratic, or even (dare I say it?) – “extreme.” By the time they’re done reading this, however,...

    Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee in the last election, was booed at President Barack Obama's Second Inauguration today in Washington, D.C. "If things had gone differently in November, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) might have departed the Capitol on Monday as the vice president of the United States. Instead, he faced a chorus of boos as he left the building to attend President Barack Obama's second inauguration ceremony," reports the Huffington Post. The left-leaning website reports that Ryan attended the Inauguration out of duty. "Ryan announced last week that he would be present for Obama's public swearing in at...

    With the shock still fresh over the sacking of Gen. Stanley Mc Chrystal, it fell to Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, to put the case in perspective: "We are and must remain a neutral instrument of the state, accountable to and respectful of those leaders, no matter which party holds sway or which person holds a given office." Mullen's statement came as a defense of President's Obama decision to replace McChrystal, but it also served as a clear expression of the military's submission to civilian leaders. Sadly, the admiral's comment was necessary because of the dangerous...

    American and European leftists share the conviction that the immigrant, legal or illegal, is always right -- and the native-born citizen's always wrong. This bigotry toward the law-abiding American, Brit, Frenchman or Italian doesn't help the immigrant in the end. Instead, it's a powerful engine driving divisiveness. There are deep differences between Europe's experience with legal immigrants intent on importing intolerant lifestyles and our problem with illegals responsible for social friction and violent criminality. But the left's blame-game is identical: Anyone who doesn't elevate the "rights" of the immigrant over the rights, safety and desires of the citizen is a...

    Sarah Palin, in her debut speech as the Republican vice presidential nominee nearly two months ago, made sure to pay tribute to Democrat Hillary Clinton and her historic presidential campaign. Today in Nevada, flanked by female supporters, she renewed that pitch to female voters in a way that seemed to accuse Democrat Barack Obama of only paying lip service to women. "Our opponents think they have the women’s vote all locked up, which is a little presumptuous since only our side has a woman on the ticket,” she said, according to press accounts. "When it came time for choosing a...
