    RUSH: It’s amazing Russian collusion stories disappeared from the media’s radar. The only thing I compare it with is how gun control completely disappeared too. Amazing? Gun control gone, Russian collusion gone, and yet Russian collusion was going to be how the Democrats would win the House back! Remember? What happened to it, hmm? Must not have been any, hmm? At least by Trump and the Republicans, hmm? BREAK TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Let’s review some things that were in the news 24/7. And the reason they were in the news 24/7, because this was how the Drive-By Media, working with the...

    Something has happened to the Democratic Party, something dramatic and awful. It wasn’t that long ago that the Democratic Party liked the United States, and its members weren’t afraid to say it. Now saying positive things about the country will get you run out of the party and possibly attacked by a mob. Their media minions will cheer it all. And, if things go as expected next month, these people could retake the House of Representatives. These people in power should scare everyone. There is nothing they won’t do to win, no lie they won’t tell, and no norm they...

THE REPUBLICANS APPEAL DISPROPORTIONATELY TO OLDER WHITES ….. AND “THE MOB THING” IS AN ATTEMPT TO ALARM THOSE VOTERS ABOUT THE PROSPCT OF NON-WHITES AND IMMIGRANTS AND TERRORISTS AND THAT SORT OF THING!”
  • Bell wants its V-280 Valor to replace the Blackhawk. Now it's testing in Arlington

    WFAA ^ | 10/20/2018 | Byron Harris
    After six years of design, development and testing in Amarillo, the Bell V-280 Valor is now in residence at the company’s flight research center in Arlington. The aircraft, designed primarily to carry troops into combat, is Bell’s entrant to replace the more than two thousand Blackhawk helicopters now in service with the U.S. Army. Bell, headquartered in Fort Worth, is competing against a Sikorsky/Boeing design in the Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstration. The two designs are radically different. The Valor is a tiltrotor, similar to the V-22 Osprey, which has been in service with the Marines for more than a decade....

    This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power ­because the 22-year-old intern “was an...

    I was buying a gallon of kombucha tea at Whole Foods for a block party by my neighbors who fancy themselves upscale members of the "resistance." I had hoped that this disgusting concoction would clear their heads and digestive tracts so they'd stop pestering me to vote for the Democrats. Stuck at the bottom of the grocery cart was a memo a prior shopper had accidentally left behind. The name of the author was lost under a splotch of what appeared to be gluten-free, fat-free, sugarless soy yogurt, but I could make out most of it. Forewarned is forearmed, so...

    **SNIP** “One of the problems is there are gaping, glaring loopholes in regulating stretch limousines. And, for sure, for every inch a limousine stretches … they get considerably more dangerous,” the Democratic Senate minority leader said during a news conference in his Manhattan office. “They are neither classified as trucks or as cars, and while limousines themselves are glutting, when they are stretched … there is no regulation at all.” **SNIP** “What I’m asking is that the NTSB investigate every stretch limo crash that we’ve had in this country,” Schumer said. “There have been a bunch. There’s now enough information...

His other arrests stem from a DUI, driving on a suspended license multiple times, marijuana possession, property damage, trespassing, and theft.
  • Mississippi Democrat (Mike Espy) says he'd be 'senator for everybody'

    ABC News ^ | 10/20/18
    **SNIP** As an African-American Democrat, Espy needs a strong voter turnout among black people, who make up 38 percent of the state's population. But he can't win without some white support in a conservative Southern state where voting patterns tend to break along racial lines. While most black votes go to Democrats, the white majority leans Republican. Even as prominent African-American politicians, including U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, have traveled to Mississippi to endorse him, the 64-year-old Espy says he is reaching out to all audiences with a unifying message. "I don't care about race or religion or gender or party...

    The new “NPC” meme mocks leftists by depicting them as unthinking and reflexive automatons. The meme has upset the left so much that Twitter is now banning people posting it for “dehumanizing speech,” but its humble origins are the computer-controlled characters of limited intelligence found in most video games. ...

  • Elizabeth Warren Reacts to Genetic Test Mockery with Odd Tweetstorm, Media Mum

    Newsbusters ^ | October 20, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Just plain nuts! That is the conclusion that many mental health professionals might come to after observing the absolutely bizarre tweetstorm Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren posted on Twitter on Monday in the wake of the release of her genetic test results which "suggests" that she might possibly be 1/1024th South American. Perhaps instigated by the backfire mockery resulting from her test by President Donald Trump in particular and the public in general, Warren posted a tweetstorm of 28 tweets on October 15 from 5:59 P.M. until 7:17 P.M.. That works out to more than one tweet every 3 minutes during a 78 minute...

    A Republican congressional candidate is comparing her Democratic opponent to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi – by depicting him in red heels struggling to walk down a sidewalk. The ad for Elizabeth Heng hits incumbent Rep. Jim Costa for supporting so-called sanctuary cities, gun control and the controversial California bullet train. “Nancy Pelosi?” a man asks in the ad as the camera focuses on red heels. “Yep, but also surprisingly Jim Costa,” the voiceover says as the video reveals an older man in a white shirt, jean shorts and black briefcase wobbling down a sidewalk in the heels. “After a lifetime...

    CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico (AP) — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 2,000 Central American migrants swam or rafted across a river separating that country from Guatemala, re-formed their mass caravan in Mexico and vowed to resume their journey toward the United States. The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow, gathered on Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. They voted by a show of hands to continue north en masse, then marched to the bridge crossing the Suchiate River...

    Whatever comes next with North Korea, President Donald Trump can hardly be accused of having neglected diplomacy. At the Singapore Summit with Kim Jong Un this past June, Trump became the first sitting American president to meet with a North Korean tyrant. He has received an envoy from Kim in the Oval Office, dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on multiple trips to Pyongyang and is talking about holding a second summit with Kim. And, with a trademark rhetorical flourish that no one should take literally, Tump recently described how Kim wrote him "beautiful letters," with the result that "we...

    I liked it when the howling loonies started pounding on the bronze doors of the Supreme Court like Brett Kavanaugh was totally going to open them up and invite the freaks in to air their many stupid grievances over a hot cup of Too Damn Bad. I also liked it when Lindsey Graham dissed that silly shrieking harpy as he adjusted his tie and smirked. And I liked it when Jesse Kelly channeled Andrew Breitbart by heading down to the protest with a t-shirt that said “Hands Off My Uterus.” I liked a lot of things about last week, and...

    Walmart has plenty of haters. But for many consumers, Walmart's prices just can't be beat. You can't afford to be choosy when you're on a tight budget. If price is not so much of a concern for you, what if you discovered that Walmart wants your personal data? And not just data about your shopping behavior, which we already give hand over fist to Amazon in the name of fast shipping. Walmart is interested in what's going on in your body while you shop. The company wants to collect this data is a particularly creepy way: through the handles of...
