Deep in the Colorado mountains each year is the Aspen Security Forum, a Washington, D.C. establishment gab-fest for discussing "critical issues" of national security and intelligence. (snip)One of the panel discussions, moderated by nonpartisan Wolf Blitzer, featured two nonpartisan Obama administration Deep Staters, John Brennan and James Clapper. Discussing one of the Trump stories of the day, that Trump may fire special counsel Robert Mueller, Brennan bromanced Mueller by saying, "It was an inspired choice – they don´t come any better." Of course it was a great choice. They are on the same team – the "destroy Trump at any
Jeffrey Lord, a prominent political analyst on CNN for the past two years, known for his passionate defense of Donald J. Trump, during the campaign and now as president, was fired on Thursday, August 10 after he used the words “Sieg Heil!” in a tweet. On Thursday morning, Lord was engaged in a strident Twitter exchange with Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, the far left group that targets conservative media programs, hosts, and analysts. Lord had written several articles in American Spectator (published August 9 and August 10) critical of Media Matters, dubbing them Media Matters Fascists (MMF)
There has been enthusiastic collusion by the leadership of the Democratic Party with the Russian disinformation campaign to destroy President Donald Trump. (snip)There is the infamous case of Ted Kennedy approaching the Kremlin to help Democrats defeat Reagan, but never before has collusion with our enemies by a non-communist party been sustained and widespread. What has changed? We are reaping the results of a multi-decade effort by the communist and socialist left. Leftists have finally dominated and transformed the Democratic Party – into something vicious and dangerous to our republic.
A dog whistle of sorts has been blown, audible to Democrat pros, alerting them to the problem Debbie Wasserman Schultz has become for the political family. Coming from Politico, the Democrat insiders’ gazette, it will heard by all. In a long, scrupulously fair, even slightly sympathetic, article (all the worse for DWS) on the “blowback” she is experiencing for numerous failures culminating in IT gate, we learn that she’s become bad for business. Marc Caputo writes: “We wish she would go away and stop being so public by doubling down on negative stories,” Nikki Barnes, a progressive DNC member from Florida, who
I am almost beginning to feel sorry for MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle, who were almost certainly instructed through their ear pieces to go on the attack with Presidential advisor Sebastian Gorka, PhD. It’s bad enough having to peddle stale old leftist talking points about avoiding the expression “radical Islamic terror,” but attempting to outsmart the guest when the hosts are roughly 50 IQ points below him is, well, a kamikaze mission.

The Smart Set agrees that once again President Trump has said something ridiculous, amateurish, and downright embarrassing. His warning to North Korea, using rhetoric that resembles the hyperbole that regime long has favored, is something they would never do (and just look at how successful they have been preventing North Korea from getting nukes.) But watch as the president makes his point twice, very deliberately using the exact words “fire and fury” that he had committed to memory (snip) Just for a moment and just for fun, let’s see if there might be any logic to trying a different approach from
If you are liberal and a faithful reader of The New York Times, you think that the Watergate campaign to take out President Nixon was America at its best. Imagine! A president covering up the criminal misdeeds of his underlings! But the liberal knows that the Republican witch hunt of President Clinton was America at its worst. Here was a president that eliminated the deficit and produced the best economy in 50 years. And Republicans wanted to make it all about a blue dress. Speaking as your average racist sexist homophobe, I’d say that the salient feature of both cooked-up scandals, no
A system of sorts has been perfected to destroy the most effective conservative spokesmen on the Fox News Channel, and it operated with stunning efficiency over the last few days. A marginal writer with a documented background as a high level political operative and fundraiser in left wing Democrat politics published an unsourced article at a far left Web site, HuffPost (formerly the Huffington Post). The article claimed that multiple anonymous sources supposedly confirmed to the writer that “several years ago” prominent Fox News channel (FNC) host and anchor Eric Bolling – who happens to be a strong supporter of
Keep it up, you coastal elites. Keep telling the unwashed deplorables how much you loathe them, where they live, their tastes, habits, and even where they go on vacation. Ridicule the things about President Trump that endear him to people that resent the people who seem to be in charge of everything. In fact, go ahead and deliver a scathing insult to the Garden State of New Jersey and its estimated 8.994 million residents. It required the efforts of two of the Boston Globe’s top reporters, Matt Viser and Annie Linskey, to concoct the elitist disdain that is apparent in the
One-by-one, key players at Fox News are being taken out by allegations that remain untested in any judicial proceedings. On Friday evening August 4 at 8:23 PM, an article was published at HuffPost: “Fox News Host Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To Colleagues, Sources Say.” The article had obviously been in preparation for some time, since it included a statement from Bolling’s attorney defending his client. The host is Eric Bolling, 54, a friend of President Donald Trump, and a defender of the president in his role as a prominent anchor and co-host on the Fox News channel (FNC).
Somehow it does not surprise that former Obama Deputy Security Adviser Ben Rhodes is now a “person of interest” in the probe of who illegally leaked for political purposes the names of Team Trump players allegedly collected inadvertently in intelligence reports. He joins others on Team Obama such as Susan Rice and Samantha Power in the unmasking designed to subvert the Trump administration in what amounts to a silent coup. (snip) While it does not surprise that Ben Rhodes may be involved in the unmasking scandal, it does surprise that H.R. McMaster has retained all of Ben Rhodes’ staffers as
Ever since Sean Connery uttered the words, “the Chicago way,” the rest of humanity has been on notice that a different rulebook applies to the territory around the confluence of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. “He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue! That´s the Chicago way.” The boundaries of this moral universe apparently extend all the way to the county line, as Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle has filed a jaw-dropping lawsuit. (snip) County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is sending a strong message to anyone who wants to mess
Sean Hannity, who has the #1 MSM radio and TV programs opposing the Deep State fake news juggernaut that seeks to destroy the presidency of Donald J. Trump, is the target of a new attack that aims to deliver the “kill shot” to his successful 21-year reign on the Fox News channel. And in so doing, further weaken the Trump Administration’s attempts to get its story out on the last surviving fair and balanced American mainstream media outlet. It was largely a successful advertiser boycott of Fox News’s longtime #1 host Bill O’Reilly last spring that resulted in O’Reilly’s leaving the
Failed presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton now has some interest in becoming a Methodist preacher, according to The Atlantic. Clinton’s pastor Bill Shillady told The Atlantic that Clinton had expressed interest in preaching when he saw her at a photo shoot for his book Strong for a Moment Like This for which Clinton has written the foreward. The book features daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. “Clinton is lifting up an intimate, closely guarded part of herself,” Emma Green writes. “There are no more voters left to lose.
Hillary Clinton´s pastoral adviser urged her to keep her head up following her unexpected Election Day loss in November and compared the election to Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified. "It is Friday, but Sunday is coming ... This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays," wrote United Methodist City Society Executive Director the Rev. Bill Shillady in an email to Clinton obtained by CNN. "Friday is the day that it all falls apart and
Since being released from prison in one of Obama´s final acts as president, she´s assumed a low-key life as an independent woman in New York City. But it seems Chelsea Manning is eager to share some parts of her new normal. Wearing just a scarlet swimsuit and delicate necklace, the 29-year-old is seen in a Vogue photoshoot this month that is reminiscent of Caitlyn Jenner´s famous Vanity Fair coming-out cover. With her blonde hair cut in to a pixie crop and sporting minimal make-up, she beamed for photographer Annie Lebowitz´s camera on a deserted East Coast beach. Raising her hands
Judge Andrew Napolitano said the FBI´s raid on the home of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is a significant development. The raid occurred July 26 in Virginia and was confirmed to Fox News today by a spokesman for Manafort. (Snip) Agents hauled away documents and other materials. Napolitano said on "Outnumbered" that to obtain the search warrant, agents would have had to persuade a judge that there was "probable cause of crime in the place to be searched." Napolitano said the raid indicates the FBI did not trust that Manafort would preserve the materials they intended to find. "That is very damning
Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power. “History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries. Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka,
Several teenagers who were involved in a deadly crash after stealing two cars had a whopping 126 arrests between the six of them. Keontae Brown, 16, Jimmie Goshey, 14, and Dejarae Thomas, 16, died after allegedly racing a stolen car through a red light going 100mph and smashed into another car. Keontae Brown´s younger brother Keondrae, 14, was also in the car but survived after the vehicle was launched into the air before bursting into flames in Palm Harbor, Florida on Sunday morning. They were allegedly playing a ´cat-and-mouse´ game with Kamal Campbell, 18, and Deyon Kaigler, 16, who were
There are two possible rationales: the legitimate one and the brass-knuckles one. Here’s the thing to bear in mind about the Washington Post’s report that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had the FBI execute a search warrant against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in late July: Prosecutors don’t do pre-dawn raids on the home of a cooperating witness. Manafort has publicly projected cooperation. Of course, we can’t know how cooperative he has actually been. The public has been kept in the dark about what is being investigated, and Mueller and the congressional committees are doing most of their work behind
MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.
Worried by the Trump administration’s delay in announcing a military strategy for the war in Afghanistan, Sen. John McCain said Thursday he’ll try to force the debate on Capitol Hill, offering his own plan that would force a troop increase. The Arizona Republican, who is also chairman of the Armed Services Committee, didn’t lay out a number in the legislation but said more U.S. counterterrorism forces should be deployed, and given independent authority to strike targets of the Taliban, al Qaeda or other terrorist groups. Mr. McCain also said the U.S should secure a long-term agreement with Afghanistan for an
A Virginia high school sent a disturbing letter to parents and students announcing they would be selecting students for Advanced Placement and honors classes at least partly based on skin color, a concerned parent told Fox News. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning over in his grave. A parent forwarded me a copy of the letter sent from John Handley High School in Winchester. “Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.” The letter went on to explain that
Mohammed Abed, a California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) tenure-track professor of ethics, social & political philosophy, and classical Islamic philosophy believes that genocide of white racists is “morally required”. Mohammed Abed claims that sometimes you just have to commit genocide to save the world from the evil people…like white racists. (Photo) David Cole broke down Abed’s academic paper “The Concept of Genocide Reconsidered” which was originally published in 2006. Cole says in a Taki’s Mag post: Abed reasons, it’s sometimes “morally required” to commit genocide, and he hasn’t been shy about advancing that argument in a series of lectures
Democrats are threatening to shutter many government agencies on October 1 unless President Donald Trump gives up his popular campaign promise to build the border wall against Mexico, according to Politico. In response, Trump’s deputies are offering political compromises to Democrats, including a rise in domestic spending, says Politico: The White House is pushing a deal on Capitol Hill to head off a government shutdown that would lift strict spending caps long opposed by Democrats in exchange for money for President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, multiple sources said. Marc Short, the White House’s director of legislative affairs, met
