Top takeaways
from a wild primary night
Politico, by Steven Shepard and Elena Schneider    Original Article
Posted By: cThree- 5/16/2018 10:42:17 AM     Post Reply
One thing was clear after the latest round of primaries on Tuesday: Democrats will be spending the next four months fighting among themselves along the familiar battle lines of ideology and identity. If last week’s primaries focused on GOP efforts to maintain or expand their majority in the Senate, the second big primary night of 2018 was all about Democrats and their chances to win back the House this November. And in both Nebraska and Pennsylvania, Democratic voters picked nominees for battleground seats that the national party didn’t expect — and may not have wanted.

No wonder he never got the
Nobel prize: Tom Wolfe made
the left look stupid

It´s couched in oh so delicate terms, as pretty much everyone mourns the death of the great Tom Wolfe: Tom Wolfe was a reporter, Tom Wolfe was an observer. Tom Wolfe eyed status-seeking. Tom Wolfe skewered the establishment. And through his incredible mastery of words, he entertained the hell out of us. Yes, true enough. But somehow he never got a Nobel prize in literature, despite vastly outranking almost everyone else who has. So I guess I am corrupting things a little when I state the obvious about Wolfe: He did write, he did observe, he did skewer, and by gosh it

Thousands of pages of congressional testimony

A music promoter who promised Donald Trump Jr. over email that a Russian lawyer would provide dirt about Hillary Clinton in June 2016 made the offer because he had been assured the Moscow attorney was “well connected” and had “damaging material,” the promoter testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Rob Goldstone told the committee that his client, the Russian pop star and developer Emin Agalarov, had insisted he help set up the meeting between President Trump’s son and the lawyer during the campaign to pass along material on Clinton, overriding Goldstone’s own warnings that the meeting would be a bad idea. “He

The children of slain NYPD officer Miosotis Familia who President Donald Trump honored on stage at the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service thanked him for the gesture during a Wednesday morning interview on CNN.“In his speech he was talking about some stories of the fallen officers that I guess really stood out and one of those stories happened to be my mom’s story and the tragedy surrounding her death and when he invited us up on stage, a moment like that was very — it was very important and for my mom’s heroism and her legacy to be acknowledged by

‘Indoor generation’: A quarter of Americans

Call them the in(side) crowd.About 25 percent of Americans hardly ever venture outside, unaware or unconcerned about breathing only stale indoor air, a report says. In an age when nearly everything can be found (and delivered) online — including food, entertainment and relationships — it’s hardly surprising to discover an “indoor generation.” “We are increasingly turning into a generation of indoor people where the only time we get daylight and fresh air midweek is on the commute to work or school,” Peter Foldbjerg, the head of daylight energy and indoor climate at Velux, a window manufacturing company, said in a

American Thinker cited in lawsuit

I have to say that I am delighted to have been cited in the lawsuit filed the nonprofit organization Protect Our Parks against the transfer of public park land to the private group that will build, own, and run the Obama Presidential Center, intended for 19 acres of prime lakefront land in Chicago. As I noted yesterday: The complaint cites an "institutional bait and switch" because the original plan was for a federal entity to take possession of the land and build an Obama Presidential Library, which would be publicly owned and controlled. That was the bait used to obtain priceless

How’s that progressivism

Is Jeff Bezos having second thoughts about his political ideology and that of his newspaper? The founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post -- and the richest man in the world at the current Amazon stock price – is being targeted by leftists because he has been so successful. Not for any alleged misbehavior, but simply because he and his company Amazon (not the WaPo) have so much money. Yesterday, Bernie Sanders attacked him by name (snip) Meanwhile, the day before Sanders gave his speech, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a new tax on large employers, requiring

An Arkansas judge issued a restraining order Monday barring several local television stations from broadcasting a controversial campaign ad linking a state Supreme Court justice to a Fayetteville lawyer who lavished the justice with personal gifts. The judge who issued the decision, known as a TRO, has accepted campaign contributions from the attorney at issue in the ad, and his wife has substantial business connections to the embattled justice.

Larry Kudlow, who took over as director of the National Economic Council (NEC) after Gary Cohn´s departure last month, is so far demonstrating extraordinary leadership in being able to reconcile the disparate factions within the Trump administration, all the while promoting growth-centered policies that would only strengthen an economy already in its best shape in years. (snip) Since the NEC was conceived by an executive order by President Bill Clinton in 1993, it has been principally wedded to a globalist culture, with an emphasis on multilateralism and strengthening the liberal global order.

The president of the NAACP in South Carolina has been exposed as a liar falsely claiming racially-motivated police misbehavior. In a Facebook post, since deleted, Rev. Jerrold Moultire, published this purported dialogue of a traffic stop that occurred on April 13, in Timmonsville, South Carolina. Blue Lives Matter captured the post before deletion (snip) Poor Rev. Moultrie was a victim of racial profiling, if you believe this account. But I guess he didn’t realize that the officer was wearing a body camera that recorded the entire incident.

California assisted death

A judge in Riverside County on Tuesday overturned California´s controversial assisted death law nearly two years after it took effect, ruling that the Legislature improperly passed the measure during a special session on health care funding. The court is holding its judgment for five days, according to representatives for supporters and opponents of the law, to give the state time to file an emergency appeal. "We´re very satisfied with the court´s decision today," said Stephen G. Larson, lead counsel for a group of doctors who sued in 2016 to stop the law. "The act itself was rushed through the special session of the Legislature and it does not have

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com

Media Bias: How Media

Bias: You might think that national news outlets would be extra careful not to sensationalize or distort what´s happening in Gaza and the West Bank in response to the U.S. moving its embassy to Jerusalem, Israel´s capital. But if you did, you would be incredibly naive. The mainstream media went out of their way to portray the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem as an incitement to violence by Palestinian "demonstrators." Headlines often give away the underlying bias. Typical was one from the New York Times: "Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem." Get the linkage? It's all our fault — and the

Tantalizing Testimony From a Top Trump

WASHINGTON — The White House official had a startling assertion: He thought he had received an email in the first half of 2016 alerting the Trump campaign that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Testifying behind closed doors on Capitol Hill in late March, the official, John K. Mashburn, said he remembered the email coming from George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the campaign who was approached by a Russian agent, sometime before the party conventions — and well before WikiLeaks began publishing messages stolen in hackings from Democrats. Such an email could have proved

Tom Wolfe captured and caricatured
New York City better than anyone

Tom Wolfe, who died Monday at the age of 88, carried his Virginia accent with him all of his days. He famously, or notoriously, dressed himself in a creamy white suit whose purpose seemed to be to say “Whatever I am, I am not one of you.” And yet Tom Wolfe was surely one of the most consequential New Yorkers who ever lived. Wolfe arrived in New York in 1962 to write for a magazine called . . . New York. Almost immediately, he achieved an understanding of the workings of this city and its elite few writers before him ever even began to glimpse. He had Edith Wharton’s cold-eyed capacity for portraying the triumphs of

A CNN political analyst put out an image of President Trump in crosshairs — exactly what Sarah Palin did and which caused liberal commentators to blame her for the Gabby Giffords assassination attempt. Chris Cillizzatweeted out the image of President Trump speaking at a memorial for slain police officers Tuesday. “Donald Trump, pointing to heavens to commemorate police officers killed in the line of duty,” Mr. Cillizza wrote on the initial tweet. Mr. Cillizza later deleted the tweet when people began taking him to task and reporting him to Twitter as having encouraged an assassination attempt. He said the graphic

!!!#zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz****** All the exclamation marks, diacritical marks, endlessly repeating letters, onomatopoeia — Ignore them. They were tricks, froth. What made Tom Wolfe a revolutionary and a monument (simultaneously) were hard work, and a stance. Like a number of great writers — Dickens, Whitman, Hemingway — he came out of journalism. Unlike them, he stayed at it, observing, moving around, discovering, all his life. His first pieces were New York City observations, the kind of thing “The Talk of the Town” feature in The New Yorker was meant to present. But soon he broadened that to cars — stock cars and

John Brennan’s ‘Exceptionally Sensitive’ Issue

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Democrats should stop trying to win over white Republican voters, according to several prominent liberal writers. That was the point of a column Washington Post writer Paul Waldman wrote on Tuesday, which liberal journalists approvingly circulated on social media, adding their agreement. Waldman, who previously worked for left-wing group Media Matters, blamed Fox News and conservative media for the fact blue-collar Trump voters don’t vote Democrat. “In the endless search for the magic key that Democrats can use to unlock the hearts of white people who vote Republican, the hot new candidate is ‘respect,´”

LOS ANGELES — Stormy Daniels has raised nearly a half-million dollars to fund her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, relying on contributions from a crowdfunding site. Her lawyer has repeatedly pointed to the public site as evidence that he and his client aren’t bankrolled by Trump’s political foes. But the truth is, no one knows precisely who is funding the effort. The more than 14,000 donations have been made mostly anonymously in amounts ranging from $10 to $5,000. Through Monday, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, raised more than $490,000 on

The comedians are beginning to catch on. Over the weekend — just one week after featuring a bevy of top-line Hollywood stars impersonating members of the Trump administration, as well as a cameo by a vengeful Stormy Daniels asking for President Trump’s resignation — Saturday Night Live finally acknowledged that they may have gone overboard. Cast members of SNL showed up at the beginning of the Mother’s Day episode with their actual mothers, several of whom chided them on their myopic focus on Trump. Chris Redd’s mother said, “I don’t understand why everyone focuses on Trump when you should be

The Justice Department said Tuesday it responded to demands from Capitol Hill Republicans to turn over documents about former FBI Director James Comey´s law professor friend who last year released contents of Comey’s memos to the media. DOJ officials told Fox News the response was transmitted to Capitol Hill, but it was not immediately clear what the response was. The House Oversight Committee told Fox News it did not receive any documents from the DOJ, but did receive a verbal response and expected to get the documents by Thursday. Earlier this month, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and

LOS ANGELES — An explosion at a Southern California building that killed one person and injured three others may have been an "intentional detonation," law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation said, although other officials cautioned that a cause and whether it was intentional has not been determined. The investigation into the explosion that occurred in Aliso Viejo at around 1 p.m. local time on Tuesday (4 p.m. ET) is being assisted by the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, officials said. Multiple law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation told NBC News that

S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster is joining the push to get President Donald Trump a Nobel Peace Prize. McMaster is one of seven Republican governors who wrote Monday to the Nobel committee in Norway, asking it to consider Trump for the prize, to be awarded later this year. The letter says Trump, who has endorsed McMaster in his bid to remain S.C. governor this year, deserves the award "for his transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula after more than 60 years of conflict and division." "President Trump has achieved an unprecedented victory for global peace and security," the governors write, "opening
