Cultural Winners and Losers of 2018
Cybercast News, by L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 1/2/2019 9:32:38 AM

It´s a little hard to judge popular culture in the Trump era, wherein content creators are judged solely on political impact — are they offering enough "Resistance"? — instead of the quality of their product. The Democratic gains in the midterms should make the left happy about its political fortunes, excepting that every day President Trump remains in office is intolerable. Culturally it´s a mixed bag. Though the products offered are overwhelmingly leftist, deconstructionist or both, the audience response is often unsupportive. When there is a rare nod toward a pro-conservative or pro-American message, the public´s response is enthusiastic. So from

This article reminds men that Samantha Bee and Chelsea Handler are not the same person.

When I think of either name, the same face shows up in my memory. I´m not sure which one it really is.

Not that I really care.

Popular Culture has become an overflowing cesspool. Most movies, music have become disgusting, along with the actors. I have subscribed to Netflix, but 90% of the titles are worthless. DVD by mail offers a far better selection. If it weren´t for the roomates renting from me, I would drop the streaming like a hot rock.

Kashoggi should get favorable mention since he was a cultural unknown before he was disassembled and became a media celebrity afterwards.

Giuliani doesn’t deny Trump campaign
may have colluded with Russia
Market Watch, by Mike Murphy    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 1/17/2019 7:11:57     Post Reply
Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, said he doesn’t deny that the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russians in the 2016 election — only that Donald Trump himself did not. Speaking on CNN on Wednesday night, Giuliani claimed he has only said Trump himself was not involved in collusion. “There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC,” he said. Giuliani also said Trump has never denied there was no collusion,

The New York Times’ War on
Israel and Jews Who Support It
Breitbart, by Caroline Glick    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 1/14/2019 8:45:53     Post Reply
The New York Times has never been a big fan of Israel, or non-assimilated and non-leftist Jews for that matter. But it’s hard to escape the impression that the Times has decided to intensify its hostile stance towards Israel, Israeli Jews, and American Jews who support Israel. These efforts take two forms. First, the Times whitewashes Israel’s enemies. Last month, the paper published a paean to Hezbollah, Iran’s Lebanese terror army, which controls Lebanon and remains the most powerful and dangerous terror organization in the world. In an article ostensibly about Christmas celebrations in Beirut, the paper singled out Hezbollah for praise for

Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of victims

Support for Trump´s wall
reaches all-time high: Poll
Washington Examiner, by Daniel Chaitin    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 1/13/2019 9:37:21     Post Reply
Support for President Trump´s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is at an all-time high weeks into a partial government shutdown which began over a border security dispute for funding. According to the results of an ABC News and Washington Post poll released Sunday morning, 42 percent of Americans support a wall. That is up from 34 percent one year ago and a previous high of 37 percent in 2017. With 54 percent, the majority poll still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was

Donald Trump Jr. put CNN´s Jim Acosta in his place on Thursday in response to the White House correspondent taking a swipe at him on social media after being roundly mocked over videos he posted on his Twitter account. Acosta visited the border in McAllen, Texas, ahead of President Donald Trump´s visit, and decided to try to prove that the president was wrong about the border. The result was Acosta unintentionally demonstrating that border walls made the area safer. "I found some steel slats down on the border," Acosta tweeted. "But I don’t see anything resembling a national

During a heated debate about illegal immigration with former Donald Trump adviser Steve Cortes Wednesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” network commentator Ana Navarro took to filing her nails. The segment began with Cortes and Navarro, a staunch critic of the president, reacting to Donald Trump, Jr.’s now-deleted tweet that said zoos work because they have walls. “At the end of the day, Donald Trump, Jr., and whatever he says, can I just file my nails? This is an entitled, rich, spoiled little brat whose only call to fame is being his daddy’s son,” Navarro said.

Fertility rate for white women plummets
BELOW the limit needed to maintain
the population in every single US state
Daily Mail (UK), by Mary Kekatos    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 1/10/2019 8:14:36     Post Reply
Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017 - below the rate needed for the population to replace itself, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals. However, among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively. When researchers looked at fertility rates for women of all age groups and races, they found that the nationwide rate was 16 percent lower than what is considered the level for a population to replace itself. Experts say this is likely due to the fact that the

There are so many contrived outrages in a given week, let alone a year, that it can be hard to recall any individual instance of outrage after it has already passed. But the infamous Starbucks bathroom outrage was so phony, so absurd, and so disconnected from anything resembling logic or reason, that it deserves to be remembered. In case you need a refresher course: a Starbucks manager at a location in Philadelphia came under heavy fire last spring after refusing restroom privileges to two non-customers. The men, who happened to be black, asked to use the restroom...

Is Michelle Obama Plotting to Take
the White House in 2020?
Townhall, by Cliff Nichols    Original Article

Recently, the mainstream media gleefully reported something that many at first dismissed, quickly passing it off as nothing more than a transient morsel of cultural trivia, if not fake news. Allegedly, a recent Gallup Poll not only bestowed upon Michelle Obama the honor of being The Most Admired Woman in 2018,but also thereby declared her to be more popular than Hillary and Oprah! I would suggest this news might represent an ominous bellwether of measurable import to all of us who are hoping to see President Trump elected to a second term.

Carlson’s Invisible Political Hand
Riles Conservative Critics
American Greatness, by Julie Kelly    Original Article

In spite of policy differences on social issues—from gay rights to gun control to abortion—the steadying core of modern-day conservatism always has been the defense of the individual over the state. During the Reagan era, the movement witnessed in real time how the disassembling of statist economic policies could resuscitate a fossilized free-market system to the benefit of nearly all Americans. Before Reagan’s election, libertarian economist Milton Friedman warned that our economic freedom is threatened constantly by the capriciousness and self-interest of politicians and their special interest benefactors—and that was not okay: “Both the fragmentation of power and the conflicting government

Trump Can’t Afford to Lose

On Tuesday night, President Trump will deliver a prime-time address to the nation “on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern border.” It will be his first big address from the Oval Office, a signal that the president recognizes, at least on this issue, that to succeed he must reach beyond his base to rally the American people. He further promises to travel to the border Thursday to “meet with those on the front lines.” The Oval Office speech and trip to the border suggest the stakes are rising as the government shutdown is now in its third week.

Russian Patriarch Warns ‘Antichrist’ Will

The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has said that humans’ dependence on modern technology will result in the coming of the Antichrist. In an interview with Russian state media, Patriarch Kirill explained he does not entirely oppose gadgets, but warned against “falling into slavery” to smartphones. Patriarch Kirill said that the collection of user data including “location, interests and fears” will make it possible for humans to be controlled by external forces. “Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist,” Kirill told the state-run Rossia-1 TV network on Orthodox Christmas Monday.

In recent days, many online essays have rightly ripped apart Gillette´s ugly new "We Believe" advertisement. One online critic dubbed it "feel-bad liberalism."

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse. The couple, however, maintain Jayden — who is on

PASCAGOULA, Miss.— A Mississippi man in declining health is telling a story he’s kept secret from his own family for 45 years: he claims he was abducted by aliens. Calvin Parker says he and his buddy Charles Hickson were fishing in 1973 on the banks of the Pascagoula River, just north of where Ingalls Shipyard now sits, when a “real bright beam appeared all over us and it kind of blinded me for a second and when I got my vision back, I seen three bulky looking creatures coming toward us.” Parker said the creatures were “probably 4, 4 1/2, 5 foot tall…built like football players.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown. Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens. (Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec.

Domnio’s Pizza has been legally required to makes its app and website fully accessible to the visually impaired following a years-long legal battle with a blind customer who was left unable to order a pie with personalized toppings through his iPhone. Guillermo Robles in a lawsuit filed back in September 2016 first accused the popular pizza chain of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act “for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible and independently usable” for those who are blind. The Americans with Disabilities Act, made law in 1990, says it is unlawful

Attorney General nominee William Barr said he told President Trump that Robert Mueller is a “straight shooter” when the president once quizzed him about the special counsel’s integrity. Barr, testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Tuesday, said he talked to Trump about joining the president’s defense team last summer. “He said, ‘Oh you know Bob Mueller, how well do you know Bob Mueller?´” Barr told the panel.

Wallace’s program "Deadline: White House" devoted a segment to Rep. Steve King’s remark about wishing "white supremacy" was not considered offensive. Republicans voted unanimously to condemn white supremacy today but Wallace was laser-focused on trashing every member of her former party for the comment. "This does not have a parallel on the left.
