President Trump, who this week boasted at a Wisconsin tool factory that “no administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days,” said in a Friday morning tweet that he’s not getting enough credit from the national media for all his successes. “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!” Trump tweeted. (Tweet) Whether the president was looking to pre-empt media criticism or lower expectations as the benchmark nears was not clear, but the White House is clearly bracing for a report
Mister President: It matters not to me what the press says about you. I voted for you and you have made me proud that I did. Prayers are rising daily for your presidency, our beloved country and your family. I expect the choices you have made with which I do not agree will be explained later on. For me and my house, you ARE my president. (It has been nearly a decade since I have had a president.)
So true. For example, I have the radio on in my house most of the day. Frequently what I hear is distorted and slanted against Trump. Where does a radio station get their news from? The AP? They are just repeating what they are being fed. Have to imagine many people hear the news from a radio, and are influenced by it. Much of the news is more propaganda then news. Its everywhere: TV, radio, and the internet.
..and they never will, no matter what you do. Many are saying Trump should not be fighting the press so much. I disagree. He should have a whole department of people on twitter, facebook, whatever to wage holy war on them everyday in every way possible. George W. didn´t fight back and the media was able to define him, giving us Barack Hussein Obama. Sod ´em.
On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the case of Michel v. McConnell, where the courts below rejected a citizen’s effort to sue senators for inaction on D.C. Circuit Chief Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The lower courts’ opinions explain why another controversial dispute, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) v. Donald J. Trump, will also fail—with only days left until the government’s response is due in that case. Disappointed with the process of the Senate’s refusal to hold a vote on Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Steven S. Michel sued
The Washington Post´s E.J. Dionne wrote an opinion article that lectures Donald Trump that he can’t just do what he wants. A few of the examples he gives are that he hasn’t released his tax returns, that White House visitor logs will no longer be made public, that he spends a lot of time at his house in Florida, and that instead of telling the President of Turkey what Dionne wanted him to say he congratulated him for winning (heaven forbid). None of the things Dionne sites in his article violates Trump’s oath of office or the Constitution. Unlike Obama,
A taxpayer-funded high school in North Carolina has come under criticism from local parents because a history teacher gave students a blatantly racist assignment involving a bomb shelter and an impending nuclear war. The unidentified teacher distributed the assignment at Olympic High School in Charlotte, reports local CBS affiliate WBTV. The assignment — called “Bomb Shelter Activity” — forces students to use skin color and ethnic background to choose four strangers who will be allowed enter a bomb shelter prior to a nuclear attack. There’s a “40-year-old Black female doctor who is a lesbian,” for example. There’s a “25-year-old Hispanic
The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list. In letters to each of the nine jurisdictions the Justice Department said they signed documents last year, when they applied for Byrne
During today’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough offered up some high praise to former Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin over the way she handled her interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper yesterday. What was he commending her for? Well, he seemed to be extremely impressed that she was able to speak somewhat articulately. Highlighting right away that he wasn’t trying to be “snide,” Scarborough expressed amazement that “she spoke in complete sentences.” “Over the past five, six, seven years every time she got on TV,” he explained, “she rambled to such a degree — it was word salad.”
Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appears on Bloomberg News to discuss the seismic, epic, thundershock confrontational clash that is about to take place between the Trump administration and the DC UniParty. There are no adjectives capable of describing the scope and immeasurable scale of the battle that is about to transpire between the White House and the Democrat/Republican UniParty. MONEY is where every entity within the full-swamp goes nuclear against President Trump and the administration. Despite all prior discussions toward this end, it is doubtful that more than one-in-a-million people can fully grasp the dynamic at play.
Since Hillary Clinton´s 2016 loss at the hands of President Trump, the Democrat Party has been struggling to find its new leader. Even over the course of the campaign season, clashes between Clinton supporters and those of one-time rival candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) exposed a very real fracture among Democrats — one that party leaders are still struggling to mend. On Thursday, during an interview with “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski, longtime Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett made it clear that there are at least two more popular Democrats whose names can be removed from that list of America´s
The Egyptian American charity worker who was sent to prison for three years in Cairo met with President Trump Friday at the White House. “We are very happy to have her back home,” Trump said. “Thank you very much." The White House has been working for weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to secure the release of Aya Hijazi, 30, as well as her husband Mohamed Hassanein and four other humanitarian workers. Wade McMullen, managing attorney at the Robert F Kennedy Human Rights organization which has been advocating on Hijazi´s behalf, told National Public Radio that Sisi’s visit to Washington came
In order to make the deadliest ideology of the 20th century palatable to young Americans, “Communism for Kids” is coming to a bookstore near you. This newly released book from MIT Press “proposes a different kind of communism, one that is true to its ideals and free from authoritarianism.” The death toll from communist regimes in the 20th century is well-documented. One study found that more people were killed under communism than homicide and genocide combined, and only 9 million more people were killed in World War I and World War II combined than under governments of this ideology. Another
(Photos) A massive blackout likely caused by a fire at a PG&E substation swept through San Francisco on Friday, darkening homes and businesses for hours, shutting down a subway station and all the cable cars, and knocking out streetlights across a wide swath of the city. The power outage, which at its height affected 88,000 customers, struck just after 9 a.m. when a fire erupted at a Pacific Gas and Electric Co. depot at Larkin and Eddy streets. A catastrophic failure of a circuit breaker ignited insulation, causing a fire and explosion, said Barry Anderson, a PG&E vice president. The
Bill O´Reilly, the Fox News anchor ousted over sexual harassment allegations, is seen for the first time since his dramatic firing this week. Pictured exclusively by DailyMail.com at his Long Island home, a weary-looking O´Reilly was wearing a pullover, sweatpants and slippers as he left the house. Later, he was pictured shoe shopping at ´Eric Comfort Shoes´ with his son Spencer. This time O´Reilly had changed to be a little less casual, wearing white tennis shoes, jeans and a windbreaker with his alma mater, Marist College, proudly printed on it. After purchasing a pair of shoes, the two headed back
The President signed two presidential memoranda’s and one executive order today. (Photo/Video)) He opened his signing: “This is ‘Identifying and Reducing Tax Regulatory Burdens’,” he paused, then jokingly continues, “that covers a lot of territory there.” The President grinned after that, the crowd of reporters laughed, and he signed the document. “This is the subject of financial stability, the oversight council,” he uncapped his pen, “very important." “This is orderly liquidation authority . . . doesn’t sound like much – but it is. That’s a biggie, it doesn’t sound good, but it is.” After signing the document, President Trump addressed
Chelsea Clinton likes cheddar cheese and Twitter and hates that America can’t come to grips with what the Clinton Foundation actually does. Oh, and her mother lost because voters are sexist. Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives. The former First Daughter says she was “not surprised” at the blatant sexism
Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr
Senator Elizabeth Warren launched another attack on U.S. President Donald Trump on April 19, describing his election win as partly the result of an “ugly stew of racism” on the MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show. (Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.” Warren also attacked the president for
Tucker Carlson is moving to the much-coveted 8 pm time slot on Fox News on Monday, and with it comes news from Fox today that his first big interview will be with none other than Caitlyn Jenner. Per Fox News, Carlson and Jenner will speak on issues including “President Donald Trump’s administration, the current political climate and divide in America, as well as her thoughts on how to bring Americans together.” Jenner is returning to 20/20 tonight to speak once again with Diane Sawyer, and her appearance on Fox News Monday comes after Jenner’s comments to Sawyer about how while
A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"
The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to
A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a
Legendary musician Bruce Springsteen and singer/songwriter Joe Grushecky released a new song, "That´s What Makes Us Great," to protest President Trump. Grushecky wrote the anthem just as Trump was being sworn in as president in January. "I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky told the Pittsburg Post-Gazette in an interview. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ´What do you think about singing on it?´ He gave it the Bruce treatment." "Don´t tell me a lie / and sell it as a fact / I´ve been down that road before /
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says she thinks Democrats can win back House control in 2018. Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday. Georgia´s 6th Congressional District, which became vacant after former Rep. Tom Price became Secretary of Health and Human Services, has been held by the GOP
By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch. "And without schooling, you can´t get a job that
Former Vermont governor and Democratic National Comittee chairman Howard Dean called out conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Twitter. (Snip) The comment was in response to a former New York Times reporter who tweeted, "Free Speech Defenders Don´t Forget: Ann Coulter once said: My only regret w/ Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building." The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that "fighting words" are not constitutionally protected, meaning that the words would have to directly incite violence. Timothy McVeigh was an American terrorist responsible for the Oklahoma City bombings that killed 168 people and injured
Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist
