FEC boss who tried to muzzle
Drudge now on Soros payroll

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/19/2017 5:35:12 PM

The former chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission, who famously eyed regulating the politics of conservative outlets like the Drudge Report, has joined an advocacy group funded by George Soros and run by his son. Ann Ravel is the first fellow listed with the California advocacy group New America. Her fellowship began in March and pays a $30,000 stipend. "We want to help amplify the work of each of our fellows, both to help them better articulate and reach their target audience, and to raise their profiles as change-makers," according to the group. Since leaving the FEC, Ravel has continued to

Trump Lops Off Another of the
Green Blob’s Tentacles
Breitbart Big Government, by James Delingpole    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/24/2017 9:38:52     Post Reply
President Trump has disbanded something called the Advisory Committee for the Sustained National Climate Assessment (ACSNCA). Good. That shrieking you can hear is the sound of the Green Blob, mourning the loss of another of its tentacles. If you believe the liberal media, the ACSNCA – as probably no one ever called it – was a vital organization established by President Obama in 2015 as part of his career-defining mission to combat climate change: The 15-member Advisory Committee for the Sustained National Climate Assessment included academics, corporate representatives, and local officials who were tasked with helping public and private-sector officials

George Clooney and his wife just donated a large sum of money to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal hate group active in smearing non-adherents to Marxist theology. He said, "There are no two sides to bigotry and hate." Paul Ryan has been equally generous with his wisdom on how there is somehow only one side to issues of bigotry and hatred, though there are clearly two or more cultural factions expressing diametrically opposed views on myriad social and cultural issues. If there are not two sides to a phenomenon, then there is only one side. If there´s only

President Trump Hints At Timing

Prior to last nights intensely enjoyable MAGA rally in Phoenix Arizona CTH was wondering if President Trump would trigger “The Big Ugly“; the looming and necessary battle with the professional republican DC apparatus. All the key ingredients were there: A challenger for Senator Jeff Flake; prior statements from both Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan in opposition to the President; the perfect geography to highlight the GOPe’s 800lb open-border agenda; the failure to repeal Obamacare because of an Arizona senator; the border wall, etc. The righteous list is long and the timing looked about right.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he´s disappointed that President Trump "refused" an attempt to mend the country´s political divisions during a campaign-style rally Tuesday night. "I´ve repeatedly encouraged POTUS to unite our country. It was disappointing that last night in Phoenix, he once again refused," Kasich tweeted Wednesday. "After all, what greatness has America ever accomplished by tearing down its own?" he wrote. "We must all unite for a common goal: A stronger America." (Tweets) Kasich´s comments came a day after Trump delivered a defiant and fiery speech to a crowd of supporters in Phoenix, Ariz., in which he ripped

It is no secret to anyone who has been paying attention that the Left’s commitment to free speech–perhaps never strong in the first place–has been eroding rapidly. Now even the American Civil Liberties Union is beginning to backtrack on the First Amendment. The Associated Press reports: Faced with an angry backlash for defending white supremacists’ right to march in Charlottesville, the American Civil Liberties Union is confronting a feeling among some of its members that was once considered heresy: Maybe some speech isn’t worth defending. Traditionally, the ACLU has recognized that the question isn’t whether the content of any particular

Our Post-Charlottesville Narrative

Pundits, journalists, politicians, clergy, law enforcement, sociologists—all may agree or disagree to varying degrees about what the Charlottesville mayhem of August 12 means for our country. Any number of interpretations could be useful and instructive. But above all Charlottesville has shown just how profoundly broken and destructively useless our media industry and political establishment really are. It is a genuine national embarrassment. I do not say that lightly. I love this country; I love its rich history, its political traditions, its culture, its people. I love its religious backbone. I do not love the historical flaws of our country, but

The world´s most famous grill maker just grilled two of today´s most famous athletes. George Foreman took down Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant on a podcast Monday, saying neither the football nor basketball star is patriotic. Foreman, 68, spoke out on the "Offended America" podcast, offering that those who refuse to stand for the national anthem, like Kaepernick, are just looking for attention. “I love the United States," Foreman said. "They [Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick] haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic.” He added, “A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege.”

A new face of the Islamic State is a 10-year-old American boy the terror army claims came to Syria two years ago with his mother from the United States. In a new ISIL propaganda video, the boy is identified as an American citizen named “Yusuf” and says he is the son of a U.S. service member who deployed to Iraq. “This battle is not going to end in Raqqa or Mosul. It’s going to end in your lands,” the boy says. He looks straight at the camera lens to deliver an anti-Donald Trump diatribe, speaking in what sounds like Americanized

Russia’s ambassador to Sudan, Mirgayas Shirinskiy, was found dead in his swimming pool Wednesday — the fourth Russian envoy to die in just eight months. Police found him at his home in home in the country’s capital, Khartoum, officials said. Doctors came immediately, but were not able to save him, according to Russian state media. Shirinskiy, 62, had high blood pressure, and authorities believe he died of natural causes, police told Reuters. Three other Russian emissaries have died in since December.

New Gov’t Regulations
Absolutely Plummet Under Trump

The pace of new government regulations has plunged in President Donald Trump’s first seven months in office, a welcome relief to businesses and banks that have long pushed for less interference in the economy. In the first half of 2017, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has processed some 67 regulatory actions, ranging from notices to final rules. During the first six months of former President Barack Obama’s first term, the department coursed through three times as many, processing 216 regulatory actions. New regulations spiked even more under former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The Office of

HOUSTON, Texas — Heavy rains and flooding are predicted for the coastal regions of Texas as the once and future Tropical Storm Harvey approaches. Currently, Harvey is expected to re-organize Wednesday. Forecasters call for a potential of more than a foot of rain for the Texas coastal region stretching from Port Lavaca to Houston. The heavy rains are expected to cause localized flash flooding and extended rainfall if the storm stalls, according to forecasts from the National Hurricane Center. Depending on intensity, Harvey could also create coastal flooding with a tidal surge pushed forward by heavy winds. (Photo) Officials with

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump over his pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday, arguing it “undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law.” “Mr. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for continuing to illegally profile Latinos living in Arizona based on their perceived immigration status in violation of a judge’s orders,” McCain said in a statement. “The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.”

Sigh. If only President Trump denounced neo-Nazis as passionately and sincerely as he castigates journalists. What could be an easier task than distancing oneself from Nazis or violent white supremacists? Yet Trump manages to make it infinitely complicated — and then get distracted by self-pity and excoriate reporters for committing journalism. The key strain of his sulfurous speech in Phoenix on Tuesday was an extended attack on “dishonest” reporters (including at “the failing New York Times”). Look, we in journalism deserve to have our feet held to the fire. We make mistakes all the time, and too often we are

A bill that passed the California state Senate and is now moving through the Assembly would threaten jail time for anyone who refuses to use a transgender person’s preferred pronoun. The law is currently limited in its effects to nursing homes and intermediate-care facilities, but if passed, those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” could be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, National Review reported Friday. The Senate passed the bill 26-12 at the end of May. Since then, the Assembly Judiciary committee recommended the bill unanimously

This morning the New York Times published an extraordinary, data-rich article examining the outcome of diversity efforts at colleges and universities from coast to coast. The results, quite frankly, are sobering. After decades of affirmative action, billions of dollars invested in finding, mentoring, and recruiting minority students, and extraordinary levels of effort and experimentation, black and Hispanic students are “more underrepresented at the nation’s top colleges and universities than they were 35 years ago” (emphasis added). White and Asian students, on the other hand, remain overrepresented as a percentage of the population, with Asian students most overrepresented of all.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper have entertained the idea of forming a unity presidential ticket to run for the White House in 2020, a source involved the discussions tells CNN. Under this scenario, Kasich, a Republican, and Hickenlooper, a Democrat, would run as independents with Kasich at the top of the ticket, said the source, who cautioned it has only been casually talked about. "The idea of a joint ticket has been discussed, but not at an organizational or planning level," said the source, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity. "What they are trying

NASHVILLE — President Obama, now is the time to start talking. I appreciate the instinct to hold back, to follow the keep-quiet-about-the-new-guy tradition of former presidents. But these are not traditional times. They are unprecedented, and frankly, unpresidential. You deserve a break, but we are out here in this handbasket. There has been a press secretary hiding among bushes, an F.B.I. director who learned from television reports that he had been fired and Russians laughing in the Oval Office. Something called “the Mooch” happened for about 10 days, and back in May a man body slammed a reporter and then

Washington - President Donald Trump has pardoned controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio of his conviction for criminal contempt, the White House said Friday night. CNN reported Wednesday that the White House had prepared the papers for Trump´s final decision. Arpaio, who was a sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona, was found guilty of criminal contempt last month for disregarding a court order in a racial profiling case. His sentencing was scheduled for October 5. "Not only did (Arpaio) abdicate responsibility, he announced to the world and to his subordinates that he was going to continue business as usual no matter who said otherwise," wrote US

Nancy Pelosi has been very confused this year. She keeps calling President Trump “President Bush” and continues to struggle with her vocabulary. The latest example happened in an interview with KRON when she “mixed her metaphors,” as The Washington Free Beacon reported, when talking about what the First Amendment does and doesn’t cover when it comes to free speech. "The Constitution does not say that a person can shout — yell wolf in a crowded theater,” Pelosi said, stumbling. “If you are endangering people, then you don’t have a constitutional right to do that.” Perhaps yelling “wolf” in a theater could be frightening

On Thursday, CNN´s John Blake published a story blaming "ordinary people" for making Charlottesville possible, and quoting a history professor who called such people "white supremacists by default." "We are a country with a few million passionate white supremacists — and tens of millions of white supremacists by default," Mark Naison, a political activist and history professor at Fordham University in New York City, told CNN. "You have to have millions of people who are willing to be bystanders, who push aside evidence of racism, Islamophobia, or sexism. You can´t have one without the other."

Political associates of Al Franken say they believe the Minnesota senator could be talked into running for the White House if he believes he´s the Democrat best positioned to defeat President Trump. But they say Franken would need to be convinced, and argue that the former "Saturday Night Live" star would be reluctant to enter a battle with dozens of other Democrats in what´s increasingly expected to be a wide-open race for party´s nomination. (Snip) Franken´s celebrity status, progressive bona fides and sharp tongue have left many thinking he could be an effective candidate against Trump. One Republican National Committee aide

An independent Catholic school in San Anselmo, California, has sparked the ire of some parents after officials removed and relocated a large number of religious statues, reportedly including those of Jesus and Mary, in order not to alienate children of other faiths. Amy Skewes-Cox, who heads San Domenico School’s board of trustees, said at least 18 of the 180 religious icons still remain at the school as part of a plan approved unanimously by the board last year, the Marin Independent Journal reported.

The defensive back’s curiosity drew him over and, eventually, into the conversation. (Snip) Twelve Browns players knelt in a circle and prayed while five others, including McCourty, stood with a hand resting on a kneeling player’s shoulder before Monday night’s preseason contest against the New York Giants.
