By now you have no doubt seen or heard the rant against President-elect Donald Trump issued by liberal actress Meryl Streep while receiving a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes award show on Sunday. Liberal elites in Hollywood and the media have fallen all over themselves heralding Streep’s remarks as “courageous” and “brave” as she “spoke truth to power” by perpetuating already-debunked “fake news” and other such nonsense. But we apparently have a different definition for what constitutes courage in the face of adversity, and it generally doesn’t include ill-informed wealthy actors spouting off about that which they don’t
Comments: Article is heartbreaking but worth viewing and reading to the very last word.
While Im glad to see more and more conservative resources on the net to help communicate with those on the internet, I now cringe at headlines like the one used for this article and used on a DAILY basis by this source. There isnt a day that goes by that I dont see this site linked and liked on FB using the EXACT same headliner and the article itself ends up being just click bait.
While I feel heartbreak for what the subject of this article has had to go through, the site itself has actually done a tremendous disservice to him in the Click Bait Title. The author failed to demonstrate how exactly the suffering the soldier went through had in any way "destroyed" Meryl Streep. I dont know who these new journalists are or if titles like this one are part of this new class of click bait marketing dreamed up by people wanting to draw traffic to their site, but its as if these people have never heard of the ethics of journalism where the reader is led astray by a purported piece of "news." Come on people...havent we had enough of the LEFT doing this with the news?!
PLEASE FOR GOD´S SAKE SOMEONE STOP THE CLICK BAIT JOURNALISM. ITS HORRIBLE.
While the article title may be a little sensational, the article itself is accurate and worth reading.
The author implied that the soldier ´destroyed´ Meryl Streep because he had posted a silhouette of himself and his missing half arm and mutilated hand on his Twitter page on Jan. 9 with the words, "I too hope to one day be as courageous and selfless as Meryl Streep."
Wounded Warrior J.R. Salzman received his injuries 10 years ago and his treatment is ongoing. All of the Tweets that appeared in the article, describing his wounds and the Tweet mocking Meryl Streep´s definition of courage and sacrifice, appear on Solder Salzman´s Twitter page. The author of the article was just presenting the information that appeared on Soldier Salzman´s Twitter page, a public site for all to see. No one did Soldier Salzman a disservice - rather they gave his public Tweets more broad exposure and recognition.
At the time of the article, Soldier Salzman´s Tweet re Meryl Streep had received 7,538 likes and 4,662 people had re-Tweeted the soldier´s post. Imho, Soldier Salzman is not at all offended by the article nor by those numbers.
#5 in short BAD journalistic title ie tedious hyperbole. This is the click bait journalism that has taken over much of the conservative conversation on line. It is bad journalism, even if it is used to bring awareness of something important like this man´s story. It actually caused a disservice to him because the word "destroyed" is used in practically every article title now. And in my mind, destruction of a Leftwing tart like Streep would involve more than a picture on the internet. Destruction of Streep would involve taking away all her medals and sending her off to a deserted island someplace where she could live out the utopian fantasy she wants flyover people like you and me to live. So...Good Conservative site...BAD JOURNALISM to utilize click bait titles. Im sick of it. Its hurts to see that young man used that way.
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—I’m loving all these Ancestry.com commercials where dim-witted actors say, “I thought I was a Tahitian Eskimo Mexican until I sent in my DNA test kit, and boy was I flummoxed when the results came back! I’m really Croatian with a mix of sub-Saharan! I guess I’ll be turning in my furry hat!” This is a scam I’m thoroughly in favor of, because it reveals, once and for all, the dirty secret of American politics: Race doesn’t exist! Don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe for a second that these tests mean anything. If you believe that DNA patterns
Where’s your favorite information source stand on the political scale? I’ve updated the following subjective chart based on information compiled from various sources and your feedback. Some sources have shifted left or right, others have been added including: ESPN, McClatchy, the Federalist, Conservative Review, Washington Monthly, Twitchy, Gateway Pundit and Conservative Treehouse. Please note that outlets on left and right sometimes publish material that’s on the opposite side of the political spectrum, or that has no political leaning at all. The placement is based on perceived overall tone and audience. Position on the chart doesn’t necessarily imply credibility or lack thereof. Sources
The famous bimbo eruptions are back (as if they had ever really gone away), and for once Bubba appears to be in the clear. No new accusations of rude behavior have been lodged against him. "He´in and she´in" has been going on since the creation of Eden, when the original snake in the grass challenged the doofus Adam for the attentions of the manipulative and comely Eve. The bump and clatter of "he´in and she´in" will no doubt disturb the peace and quiet of the globe long after the feminists and their tort lawyers have been put down for their naps
Much has been said about how the Chinese view US President Donald Trump, but recently thoughts have turned to the Chinese perception of his daughter Ivanka. Blond-haired, attractive, and interested in Chinese language and culture, she may be seen as the perfect foreigner. Many young Chinese women are enamored with her success and grace, looking up to her as a role model, though news sites also demonstrate general awareness of the controversies surrounding her and how her appeal might be deliberately used to placate China. With her light hair, eyes and skin in addition to her family background and her
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had reason to smile from his balcony as he saluted thousands of troops who goose-stepped in perfect formation across the square below. Then rumbled a parade of tanks, missiles and other heavy military items from his glorified arsenal of sophisticated weaponry. Finally came the masses of cheering locals waving flags and shouting the names of Kim Jong-un and his grandfather Kim Il-sung, the deceased national founder for whom the celebration was held in honor of his 105th birthday anniversary. But while Kim Il-Sung’s legacy is secure, Kim Jong-un’s is less so as his provocations isolate the country
Shortly after the 2008 election, President Obama´s soon-to-be chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, infamously declared, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste." He elaborated: "What I mean by that (is) it´s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Disasters, such as the September 2008 financial crisis, were thus seen as opportunities. Out of the chaos, a shell-shocked public might at last be ready to accept more state regulation of the economy and far greater deficit spending. Indeed, the national debt doubled in the eight years following the 2008 crisis. During the 2008 campaign, gas prices at
How thirsty does Variety look begging readers to join it in doing high V cheerleading moves for Chelsea Clinton? Thirstier than an ultra-marathoner lost in Death Valley in mid-July. Hyping the entertainment magazine´s latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, "How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?" Welcome to the liberal media´s manufacturing of "cool." Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check. This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children´s
Fox News is cutting ties with Bill O’Reilly, the biggest star in its 20-year history, after mounting allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior prompted the network to end his program. “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,” parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement, “the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.” Today’s decision seemed unimaginable a few short weeks ago, given O’Reilly’s long reign as the top-rated host in cable news. " ... the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be
Early in the evening, signs looked strong for Democrat Jon Ossoff as he hoped to attract a simple majority of the votes cast in today´s GA-06 special election. If he´d done so, he´d have landed a major blow against President Trump and the GOP by avoiding a run-off in which most analysts believe Democrats have a steeper hill to climb. He did not. With a critical mass of the vote counted, Ossoff is projected to finish in the mid-to-high 40´s, setting up a June 20 runoff against Republican Karen Handel. Overall turnout was robust and Ossoff performed well in the
Okay, so I am in Georgia with the Conservative Campaign Committee team working to defeat far-left-radical Democrat Jon Ossoff in the special election for the GOP congressional seat. Our CCC team was standing on a street corner waving “Defeat Ossoff” signs. A black woman pedestrian approached one of our team members to say she likes Ossoff because he believes Black Lives Matter. She asked our white team member if he supports Black Lives Matter. Our guy politely replied that he believes all lives matter. The woman seemed okay with his response. But folks, I have got to tell you, her questioning my
You can find many timelines that follow allegations of Russia tampering in the U.S. election and alleged involvement of Trump officials. But I couldn’t find any comprehensive timelines cross-referencing Obama-era surveillance of whistleblowers, journalists and other U.S. citizens with Russia surveillance allegations. So I built one. Please note: temporal proximity of events doesn’t necessarily imply a connection. January 21, 2009: President Obama takes office; pledges unprecedented transparency. April 2009: Someone leaks the unmasked name of Rep. Jane Harmon to the press. According to news reports, the Bush administration NSA incidentally recorded and saved Harmon’s phone conversations with pro-Israel lobbyists who were under investigation for
One thousand nine hundred eighty-four years ago, the sky went dark, the earth quaked and a man died on a cross. Martin Luther said that at that moment Jesus was the greatest sinner to ever live. All the sins of the believers in the past, present and future were piled on him to such an extent the sun refused to shine on him. This Easter weekend celebrates the weekend that most historians say is the most momentous weekend in human history. Even those who do not believe Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God acknowledge that his death and resurrection
Fox News host Sean Hannity has been forced to deny he sexually harassed a former contributor. Debbie Schlussel said the prime time anchor invited her back to his hotel in Detroit after a debate. After she turned down his advances, she claims she wasn´t invited back on his show. In an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, she said: ´This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.´ Her comments came just two days after Bill O´Reilly was fired from Fox News over similar allegations. Hannity
When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended
WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed
Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive. Another woman´s name was added to that list on Sunday, when CNN host Alisyn Camerota decided to break her silence and speak out, claiming that she too was one of Ailes´ victims. ´Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,´ Camerota announced during an appearance in ´Reliable Sources.´ Camerota, 50, worked at Fox News for 16 years before moving over
Sean Hannity is the latest Fox News personality facing allegations of sexual harassment. During a Friday interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again. Schlussel and Hannity were scheduled to speak together at the Detroit show, Schlussel said. But before the show, Hannity allegedly invited her to an event at a nearby bookstore. “He had some event at a bookstore
Monday on MSNBC former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest said former President Barack Obama would come back to the political debate if President Donald Trump crosses “red lines” such as using information from deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) applications to deport so-called DREAMers. (Snip) “I think what would motivate President Obama to re-engage in the political debate is if we saw the federal government start to cross some clear red lines in terms of long observed norms and values that frankly I think we have started to take for granted. One example that President Obama has himself
Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his
Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their
Liberal activist and Hollywood director Rob Reiner slammed President Donald Trump on Monday and suggested that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election was the "greatest attack" on American democracy since Japan´s attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "We´ve had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country. Japan drew the United States into World War II after attacking its naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, killing
Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star. (Snip) Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition. “I would never accuse him of that.
The entire U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the upcoming briefing, for all 100 senators, on Monday. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers. It is rare for the entire Senate to be invited to such a briefing. Spicer clarified that while the event will
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says she´s not running for president. Her office says she´s focused on her Senate reelection bid. But she has the public schedule of a future presidential candidate. Warren will speak Sunday to the NAACP in Detroit, and next month will deliver the keynote address to an annual gala held by Emily´s List, which aims to elect pro-abortion rights female candidates. Both groups represent important Democratic constituencies, and the NAACP speech will bring Warren to Michigan, a key swing state President Trump wrested from Democrats last year. Warren, who is running for re-election in 2018, raised $5.2 million in
