    Remember Sandra Fluke? The Democrats brought her in to undermine religious freedom with a ridiculous story about being unable to afford birth control. They brought her in because she was an earnest, young woman. And a human shield. Republicans should have ignored her. Instead they attacked her. And that made her a celebrity and a victim. Soon she was the young woman who had been called a "slut". Fluke rode that to a speaking gig at the DNC, where she claimed to represent all women, and several attempts to run for Congress. Most importantly, the left got to shift the...

    CNN is not out of the woods with the allegations that it scripted questions for their town hall event, which quickly went off the rails, devolving into a two-hour bashing of law-abiding gun owners and the National Rifle Association. Colton Haab, a survivor of the February 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, alleged that CNN re-wrote his question, and that they told him to “stick to the script.” Well, it seems that wasn’t the case; a doctored email allegedly from CNN was circulated to Fox News and the Huffington Post, which prompted the network to release the email exchange...

    Gun Deaths: It's become commonplace to hear after a U.S. shooting tragedy that, when it comes to guns, America is just more violent than other countries, especially those in Europe, where many countries have stiff gun-control laws. It's a progressive shibboleth, but even some conservatives agree. The only problem is, it's not true. Yes, America does have a lot of gun violence. But more than other countries, especially in Europe?

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? The Labor Department reports that new unemployment claims for last week came in at 222,000, well below the expectation of 230,000, and very near the all-time low since this measure of economic performance began being kept 45 years ago. San Fran Nan, in a rare moment of lucidity, admitted to a pair of reporters yesterday that Yes, people are getting a little more in their paychecks due to the Trump tax cuts. This belated concession to reality comes after months of lying shamelessly to the...

    RUSH: So theres another meeting at the White House. Trump is talking to state and local officials today about school safety, and during the break, I heard him. He was talking to Pam Bondi, who is the Florida attorney general, and Trump was discussing additional stimuli for kids that could not be healthy. He mentioned the possibility of video games and other things movies on the internet and so forth as things that could be in the mix in determining why the shooters do what they do. CNN puts a graphic up to describe this, and you just...

    The Wednesday CNN town hall promoting gun bans and moderated by Jake Tapper was arguably a train wreck from the beginning. Between a student saying Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reminded him of the shooter and shouts of ‘murderer’ at NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, it was out of control. But in the wee hours of Thursday morning, things got worse for the anti-gun network when the local Florida ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that CNN had been planting questions. The whistleblower was Colton Haab, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who heroically shielded his fellow students from the bullets with...

One of the kids who survived the school shootings in Parkland, Florida last week has revealed that his appearance at a CNN townhall with Senator Marco Rubio and others was actually scripted. He was invited to participate in a panel and told he would be able to ask his own questions, but once the fake journalists at CNN realized his question did not fit the anti-gun narrative the fake news channel is pushing, he...

If you read the Campaign Update, youd have read all about all of that stuff on Valentines day. Just sayin. Ok, in fairness to Rush, there has been one important event in the case that took place since February 14: On Friday, February 16, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an...

Man, the fake editors and fake journalists at the NYTimes had to have really, really hated to report the results of their own fake poll on Monday, showing as it does that, despite the fake news medias feverishly coordinated effort with the Democrats to convince the American people that getting to keep a little bit more of their hard-earned money via Trumps tax cuts was the end of the world and would kill us all, a majority of the public now supports the tax cut...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan enjoyed upward bumps in their greatness rankings, while President Donald Trump was ranked historically low, according to a presidential "greatness" survey released Monday. The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, released Monday, was based on 170 usable responses from current and former members of the American Political Science Association's presidents and executive politics section. The survey asked the presidential experts to use a 0-100 scale "for overall greatness," with zero being failure, 50 being average and 100 being great. Roughly 57% of the respondents were Democrats, 13% were...

    One of the revelations in Fridays indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was a love rally, and repeated the marchers anti-Trump mantras, such as: We reject the President-elect.

    Something needs to change,' says Milwaukee native who turned in rifle to authorities A Milwaukee native said enough is enough and turned his semi-automatic rifle into the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Ben Dickmann grew up in Milwaukee, but moved to south Florida years ago. He shared a Facebook post of a sheriff's deputy taking possession of his AR-FiveSeven, which is similar to the AR-15 that was used in the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Dickmann said only law enforcement should have guns that powerful. "Something needs to change, and it needs to change now," Dickmann said. "People have been...

Fergie butchered the Star Spangled Banner before the NBA All Star game last night so badly that Roseanne Barr was standing and yelling Im not the worst anymore! Im not the worst anymore! Fergie, sounding for all the world like a lounge singer skit on Saturday Night Live, was so awful that several players could be seen openly mocking her. She was so bad that commentator Shaquille ONeal looked at Charles Barkley afterwards and...

    Gun control advocates are only too sure that they occupy the moral high ground. In the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that left 17 dead, they are accusing their opponents of having blood on their hands. Its no longer just activists such as Chelsea Handler who are spewing such vitriol. Even mainstream liberals such as political scientist Norm Ornstein use the phrase.

Thats how theyre fighting a reciprocity bill that requires concealed handgun permits to be honored in all 50 states just like drivers licenses. The scaremongering was on full display last Sunday, in CBS News 60 Minutes lead segment by Steve Kroft on the dangers of concealed carry.

For that matter, all mass public shootings in Florida have been in places where general citizens werent allowed to defend...

While Porters likely a wife-abusing turd who needed to be fired and needs to be punished, that hardly...

    For over three months theres been an 800lb gorilla in the corner of the discussion desperately being avoided by an incurious corporate media. In the fall of 2017 Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson and Clinton-Steele Dossier author Christopher Steele were in frequent media stories. However, on December 2nd 2017 the first outline of previously invisible FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page hit the headlines. Pete and Lisa were soon joined by other previous DOJ/FBI invisibles like Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Jim Rybicki, James Baker and he-who-shall-not-be-named. Eventually the ripple effect expanded to include David Laufman (DOJ) and Mike...
