Introduction by The Editor:
The people known as the "political left" in U.S. politics are those whose primary goal is the strengthening and expansion of
(and reliance upon) the federal government, especially if that expansion increases their own power and leverage.
This pursuit of power is more important to them than a strict adherence to the truth. Therefore, to win arguments
and attract followers, they lie. They lie
about unemployment numbers and job creation. They lied
about Obamacare to get it into law. They lie
about taxes and spending. They lie
about energy production. They lied
about the Benghazi fiasco. They lie
about immigration. They lie
about Islamic terrorism. They lie
about whatever they have to in order to maintain power.
Donald Trump came along and defeated their candidate in the 2016 election. Now the political left, with 24-hour
assistance from the "mainstream" news media, lie about the President constantly, hoping to convince you that he's
ruining America. Here are some examples:
calls Trump 'psychopath' for saying out loud what rational-minded Americans are thinking about FBI. Democrats
have become so unhinged over their hatred for President Donald Trump that they think nothing of calling the commander in
chief a "psychopath." Case in point, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who took great exception to Trump saying
out loud what most rational minded Americans are already thinking when it comes to the FBI.
How the Left
Plays at Oppression and Encourages Tyrants. I've been seeing graying women with t-shirts proclaiming they're
resisting, watched colleges and universities fly their flag at half mast, and banged my head gently against the dashboard
at cars with bumper stickers proudly proclaiming the driver a member of the resistance. I've heard women proclaim
they're marching for lost rights, though no one can answer me on what rights they lost. Oh, yeah, I've also
been informed, loudly, in public spaces, that liberals are afraid to speak their mind and that the awful dictator, Trump,
has chilled their speech. [...] They know they can go around sloganeering and screaming and calling a freely elected
president a tyrant and the equivalent of Hitler, and no one will do anything.
Nicolle Wallace: Trump Is A 'Hamburger-Eating, Zamboni-Riding Loon'. On Tuesday [2/6/2018], MSNBC's
Nicolle Wallace launched into a disjointed rant about President Trump and congressional Republicans in which she alternated
between scolding Speaker Paul Ryan and insulting the President. Wallace's outburst occurred while she and the rest of
the Deadline: White House panel discussed the ultimate strategic implications of the Nunes memo's release for
President Trump and the Republican Party.
Year of Achievement. As unintended proof of his accomplishments, Trump's many liberal opponents have gone from
initially declaring him an incompetent to warning that he has become effective — insanely so — in
overturning the Obama progressive agenda. Never Trump Republicans acknowledge that Trump has realized much of what they
once only dreamed of — from tax reform and deregulation to a government about-face on climate change, the ending
of the Obamacare individual mandate, and expansion of energy production. Trump so far has not enacted the Never Trump
nightmare agenda. The U.S. is not leaving NATO. It is not colluding with Vladimir Putin, but maintaining sanctions
against Russia and arming Ukrainians. It is not starting a tariff war with China. The administration is not
appointing either liberals or incompetents to the federal courts.
The Editor says...
For those of you who don't read National Review, the editors of NR were the biggest "Never Trump Republicans" around
until Mr. Trump started to succeed.
You Love Law Enforcement, You Must Criticize FBI Corruption. Many people in the media have jointly arrived at
the same talking point. They say that criticizing the bad actions of specific people at the top ranks of a law enforcement
agency mean you're at war with all law enforcement. Politico's headline for this talking point was "Trump escalates his war
with U.S. law enforcement after memo release." "Once the party of law and order, Republicans are now challenging it," said
the Washington Post. The New York Times went with "The President's Unparalleled War on Law Enforcement."
TV pundits and hosts have used the same talking point. It's a convenient way to avoid talking about abuses revealed by
congressional overseers in a recent memo filled with facts not in dispute by the FBI.
Trump is No Longer Commander-in-Chief After Release of FISA Memo. After a long wait, the FISA memo Americans wanted to see was
finally released. It contained a lot of damaging information about Democrats. According to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA),
"President Trump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief by releasing highly classified and distorted intelligence."
MSNBC Commentator: 'People
Need To Start Taking To The Streets. This Is A Dictator.'. Donny Deutsch said on MSNBC Friday [2/2/2018]
that Donald Trump is a "dictator" and that "people need to start taking to the streets."
the stupidest MSM SOTU television commentary. There is a lot of competition for the most inane commentary on
the triumphant State of the Union Address that President Trump delivered last night. CNN attempted a pre-emptive strike
before President Trump even began speaking by speculating, as First Lady Melania Trump arrived, that her cream colored outfit
was an echo of Democrats wearing white a year ago at the presidential address to a joint session, to allegedly protest
President Trump's "anti-woman" policies. This inanity was preceded by inferences that something was wrong with the
First Lady arriving separately, accompanying guests, instead of riding with the President.
The Editor says...
Is it a scandal for the First Lady to be apart from her husband as he prepares for the State of the Union address?
At this moment, what is the physical distance between Michelle Obama and her husband, Barack H. Obama? Is it
less than a thousand miles? Probably not. I suspect the same is true of Bill and Hillary Clinton, although the
hour-by-hour locations of all these people is unknown to the public.
Waters Makes an FCC Suggestion for Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was one of five Democrats to offer a
response to President Trump's State of the Union address. She didn't actually attend, so to put it another way she
offered a response to a speech she didn't even watch. Still, she has Trump figured out. He's a "despicable
human," he's a "racist," he's "not a role model," and — her latest description — he's not fit for TV.
"Whenever he appears on TV there should be a disclaimer that says 'This may be may not be acceptable for children,'" Waters said
during her pre-taped response for Angela Rye's BET special Wednesday [1/31/2018].
Racist Claims Against Trump. As President Trump lays out and implements his vision for American success — via
his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again" — there remain defiant naysayers. Among the most defiant are those who
want to talk about race. They oppose Trump, claiming he is biased against minorities. Unfortunately, talking about race is a
great diversion from the discussion about the ideas and policies we need as a nation to move forward.
professor encourages 'abolition of white democracy'. A California professor's controversial social justice
lecture on "the abolition of white democracy" has gone viral after a student videotaped the anti-Trump presentation and
shared it online. During the talk, Diablo Valley College Professor Albert Ponce labeled President Trump a white
supremacist and encouraged students in attendance to violate American laws. "So we begin with the fact that we exist in
a white supremacist, patriarchal, heteronormative, capitalist system," Ponce says at the outset of his one-hour talk, "White
Supremacy in the U.S." The speech was the first in DVC's Social Justice Lecture Series for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Michael Moore assails Trump, 'unfit,' 'narcissist, 'sociopath,' 'threat to humanity'. One of the chief
organizers of Monday's counter-State of the Union in New York City is charging that President Trump needs to be overthrown
before he ends the world. Really.
Democratic hand on immigration. Ah, the Art of The Donald. Kick back and enjoy the ride. "Trump
plan to offer citizenship to 1.8 million undocumented immigrants," the BBC reported. How did the illegal aliens
react? "Let's call this proposal for what it is: a white supremacist ransom note. Our fear, our pain, and our
lives must not be used to shackle our parents and ban those seeking refuge; we must not be used to tear apart the moral
fabric of this country," the group United We Dream said in a statement.
Top 21 Signs from the Angry Women's March in D.C.. Thousands of anti-Trump protesters filled the National Mall
around the Lincoln Memorial and reflecting pond on Saturday, carrying signs that reveal, one year into the Donald Trump
presidency, the anger over his victory has not dimmed.
The Editor says...
Very interesting sign. Presumably, the person holding this sign voted for Barack H. Obama, who was technically ineligible
to be elected President because of his dual citizenship in the U.S. and Indonesia, and the fact that he never did prove the authenticity of his
birth certificate. Thus Mr. Obama is a "fake American," not Mr. Trump. Mr. Obama never even pretended
to be a businessman, whereas Mr. Trump has been a businessman all his life. Mr. Obama claimed to be a Christian, but there
is little or no evidence to support this claim; in fact, the preponderance of the
evidence shows that Barack Hussein Obama is actually a Muslim.
Gutierrez: Shutdown Really About 'First Racist President' Wanting to End Legal Immigration.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) claimed on Friday evening that the government shutdown is about the "first racist president
of the United States of America" wanting to end legal immigration. In a fiery speech at a MoveOn rally outside the
Capitol on Friday evening, Gutierrez accused President Donald Trump of exposing himself as a racist with his "shithole"
countries remarks. And though Trump reportedly made those remarks in regards to the visa lottery system and said he
would welcome more immigrants from Asian countries, Gutierrez said the government shutdown was not about Trump's border wall
but about "ending legal immigration in America."
the New Trump Standard, Why Wasn't Obama Impeached? One of Trump's major campaign promises was to build a "wall" to protect our southern
border. Never mind that, in 2006, 26 Democratic senators — including Hillary Clinton, then-Sen. Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer — voted
for hundreds of miles of barriers and fencing. And every Senate Democrat voted for 2013's Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and
Immigration Modernization Act, which again called for hundreds of miles of barriers. But Trump is "racist" and "xenophobic."
Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, calls Trump a "bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility," which, says Green, is a "high
misdemeanor" that constitutes an impeachable offense.
Left-Wing Author Compares Trump Administration to Termite Infestation. Appearing on MSNBC's 9:00 a.m. ET
hour on Wednesday [1/17/2018] to sell his latest Trump-trashing book, left-wing author David Cay Johnston compared the current
administration to an insect infestation that was "eating away at the structure of our government." He apparently saw himself
as the exterminator ready to stamp out the supposed political parasites. "Today, America is vastly changing under the Trump
administration, from weakening the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the CFPB, to chipping away at protections in ObamaCare,"
anchor Stephanie Ruhle warned as she began the segment.
senator now says Trump 'did not use that word'. A senator who attended the closed-door meeting during which the
president reportedly insulted Haiti and various African nations with an expletive now says Trump never said the word.
Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., who supports Trump's immigration policies, had previously claimed that he did not recall
whether or not Trump used this incendiary language. But on ABC News' "This Week," he repeatedly said that the meeting
had been grossly and totally misrepresented in the press.
ramp up efforts to boycott Trump's State of the Union address. Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her
name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the
Union address at the end of the month. Wilson, who was elected in 2010 and made headlines last year for fighting with
Trump over his telephone call to the widow of a fallen soldier, cited the president's "recent racist and incendiary remarks
about Haiti and African nations" for reasons why she wouldn't be attending the Jan. 30 speech. "For the first time
since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president's State of the Union address,"
Wilson said in a statement late Sunday [1/14/2018]. "I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity
and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump's address will be full of innuendo, empty promises and lies."
The Editor says...
Barack H. Obama made "State of the Union" speeches that were "full of innuendo, empty promises and lies," and the Republicans
didn't boycott those event for political gain. As a public service, I have kept excerpts from the reviews of Obama's
SOTU speeches (and many
Red Handed: Clinton Supporters Tried to Buy Trump Accusations. Lisa Bloom is an attorney who works for
prominent liberals and occasionally one of their super PACs. She also famous for being the lawyer who worked for Harvey
Weinstein to try to pay off or discredit his accusers. In a recent episode among those occasional cases, she openly
asked for money to vet possible sexual harassment accusations against Donald Trump. Setting aside the obvious partisan
problems for the moment, legal vetting does cost money, so this might not be a brazen breach of justice. Within the
past few months, a Republican group raised $10,000 to pay legal and associative fees for sexual misconduct victims.
It's a normal part of the process. The red flags for Ms. Bloom appear when you look at the amount of money
requested. Various donors supplied $700,000 to cover the costs of just two accusers.
'At War' With Media, 'Actively Trying to Kill Press Off!' Thursday [1/11/2018] on ABC's The View, co-hosts Sunny
Hostin and Joy Behar sparred with co-host Meghan McCain and guest host, actress and singer Keke Palmer, over the trustworthiness of
the media. Behar and Hostin complained that no one trusted the media anymore, when they were only trying to give "the truth"
and "the facts." Hostin compared Trump to a "dictator" while Whoopi Goldberg hyperbolically added, we've never had a president
that was "actively trying to kill the press off" like Trump.
Genius: Trump Holds Normal Meeting With Democrats On Immigration, Media Bewildered. On Tuesday [1/9/2018], President
Trump completely undercut Democratic arguments that he is an insane child, holding a bipartisan discussion at the White House
over the Congressional version of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Overall,
Trump looked presidential rather than petulant; he even hijacked Low-Energy Jeb!'s line, stating that he wanted to push a
"bill of love" by week's end.
to hold new meeting with psychiatrist who calls Trump a 'danger' to [the] public. Some Democratic lawmakers are
renewing their campaign this week of questioning President Trump's mental fitness for office, aided by a psychiatrist who is
drawing ethics rebukes from her peers for giving opinions about the president without having examined him. Lawmakers
will gather for dinner Wednesday night [1/10/2018] at the Washington home of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Connecticut Democrat, in a
"salon-like" setting to hear from Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist who believes
Mr. Trump is "dangerous" and requires a mental-capacity exam. DeLauro spokesman Will Serio confirmed the planned
dinner meeting but couldn't say how many lawmakers are expected to attend.
your armchair psychoanalysis of Trump. Mental health professionals should never perform armchair analyses of
persons with whom they've never met to conduct an in-person evaluation. We're not alone in holding this opinion.
It is the long-held position of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association that it is
both unethical and extremely irresponsible for mental health experts to render professional verdicts based only on casual
observation. There's a backstory to this rule, as we recounted in October of last year. The short of it is
this: A 1964 survey of psychiatrists found that half of its respondents believed GOP presidential candidate Barry
Goldwater was mentally unfit to be president. They called him a "dangerous lunatic," "paranoid," a "counterfeit figure
of a masculine man," and so on. Goldwater went on to lose the election, but he won his defamation lawsuit against
the now-defunct Fact magazine, which published the psychiatrist survey.
Dershowitz Rebukes The Ridiculous Attacks on President Trump's Mental Health. As everyone is now aware, the
latest approach of President Trump's political opposition writ large is to insufferably attack his mental fitness. This
is a historic pattern of the left-wing against people they disagree with. If you disagree with a far-left Marxist your
thinking is wrong. Not accidentally this is the exact same common approach within mainstream communist media; a modern
example is China. Disagree with authoritarian-minded people and the way you think becomes the primary focus of your
risk toward them.
Errors Found In Wolff's Book, So Far. Here's what The Daily Caller has found so far: [#1] The most
striking portrait of Wolff's carelessness in checking basic facts occurs in the early chapters of the book where he misspells
a CNN political analyst's name, misidentifies the position commerce secretary Wilbur Ross was nominated for at the time, and
places a reporter at a restaurant he says he has never been to.
Don't Let 'Fire
And Fury' Normalize 'Fake But Accurate'. "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," Michael Wolff's
entertaining new book, is a mix of wishful falsehoods, compelling fictions, and a lot of stuff we already suspected about the
White House. Even honest antagonists of Donald Trump can concede as much. [...] That's the problem with a book of
rumor-mongering. You can never know what's true, though people always tend to believe the tidbits that reinforce their
worldview. Not that these sorts of tomes are new. Every president has his Kitty Kelley. What is new,
though, is the wall-to-wall coverage of the book.
Live in Stupid Times. I have no idea what's true and what's not true in the new book Fire and Fury:
Inside The Trump White House, and neither does anyone on cable television repeating its claims like they were a personal
witness to the events described in it. But neither does the author, it seems. In the book's prologue he wrote,
"Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them. In other instances I
have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I
believe to be true." That's a long way of saying, "I don't know if all this stuff is true, I didn't bother to verify
it. And I filled in some gaps myself because 'why not?'" [...] What's true and what's fiction doesn't matter because as
that cable news personality basically put it, it fit what they all believe to be the case. We are now in a time where
what is news is determined by the "spidey sense" of activists with media credentials.
why hasn't anyone ever seen Trump's supposed dementia? Like anyone else, politicians do get old, and when they do, their age
frequently becomes obvious in public. One example is House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly slurred her speech and
spoken gibberish, both of which point to declining mental capabilities. [...] Then there are politicians who try to hide that there are any
health problems, such as Hillary Clinton, who has had massive coughing attacks in public, was seen with an odd red spot on her tongue,
required a stool to lean on during her presidential campaign debate with Trump, has had apparent seizures during press gaggles that she
attempted to laugh off, struggled to climb stairs, and has collapsed repeatedly in public. She's never been straight with the public
about what her health concerns may be, but it's pretty obvious something is not working. Do we ever see any evidence of failing
faculties like that with Donald Trump?
The Media Mainstreamed A Democratic Conspiracy Theory. Establishment media outlets including CNN and MSNBC have
helped mainstream a conspiracy theory claiming President Donald Trump is mentally ill. At the center of the conspiracy
theory is Yale psychiatry professor Bandy Lee, who for over a year has claimed that Trump is mentally impaired and unfit to
serve, pointing at his tweets as evidence. During Trump's presidential campaign, Lee flouted industry norms against
publicly diagnosing a patient without his consent or an in-person examination. She justified doing so on the grounds
that she is "obligated to break them in times of emergency." She continued her campaign after the election, earning a
book deal in the process.
The Media Would
Like You To Know That The President Is Insane. Yesterday [1/3/2018], I somewhat reluctantly took on the
question of the President's Bigger Button tweeting and expressed the concerns that I had. It wasn't a case of actually
thinking that Trump was about to launch a preemptive nuclear strike or destroy our foreign policy agenda in Asia, but rather
that the tweet would eat up the news cycle just when we were starting to make some process. I was sure that cable news
would be obsessing over it, along with most of the print and online outlets. But I once again underestimated the
reaction since I didn't foresee so many of them going The Full Vox and resurrecting the idea that President Trump isn't just
wrong on policy, but is, in fact, clinically insane. It's not the first time we've heard this line of attack, but
Politico discovered that it was an excellent opportunity to talk about a private briefing given to a group of almost entirely
Democrats, by an Ivy League, Never Trump psychiatry professor who was willing to diagnose the patient without ever having
conducted an examination.
Jemele Hill on Calling Trump a 'White Supremacist': 'I Don't Regret What I Said or Even the Language That I Used'.
ESPN host Jemele Hill says she is not sorry for the content of a tweet, in which she called President Trump a "white supremacist."
Instead, her only regret is that she used social media as her platform to do it. Hill, the host of the network's popular
SportsCenter, has continued to spout her political views despite finger waging from ESPN bosses. She has even continued
her commentary after the entire company was brought together for a mandatory meeting to go over the company's ban on overtly
political comments on social media. Indeed, she is even unrepentant despite having served a two-week suspension for
breaking the company's social media policy.
isn't mentally disturbed, and Obama isn't Moses. Much of the media is extremely excited by the news that more
than a dozen lawmakers (including one Republican) were recently briefed by a Yale psychiatrist on President Trump's mental
health. [...] Also, while we're on the topic of mental illness. Does anyone remember a certain former president
presenting himself as a Moses-esque demigod? [Video clip]
David Brock Revelations Highlight History of Destruction. Democratic activist David Brock has been exposed as
one of the key sources of money behind efforts during the 2016 presidential campaign to entice women to accuse Donald Trump
of past sexual misconduct. It was only the latest caper for Brock, who spent the 1990s attacking the Clintons before
undergoing a political conversion, and devoting his efforts — and other people's money — to a crusade
to destroy Republicans and the conservative media.
Brock Secretly Paid $200,000 To Bring Forward Trump Accusers In 2016. The New York Times published a story
Sunday on the hundreds of thousands of dollars being spent to support women willing to come forward with sexual misconduct
accusations against Donald Trump. The Times reports that a group founded by David Brock secretly gave $200,000 to
attorney Lisa Bloom while another progressive donor gave her $500,000 for the same purpose.

Clinton backer paid $500,000 to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day. A Hillary
Clinton backer reportedly paid half a million dollars to pay a lawyer representing women accusing then-presidential candidate
Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. Susie Tompkins Buell, a long-time Clinton donor, paid celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom
$500,000 to fund security, relocation and possibly a 'safe house,' for women who might 'find the courage to speak out'
against Trump, the New York Times reported. Clinton operative David Brock also gave $200,000, through his nonprofit
group, to Bloom.
Joe' guest worried Trump might invalidate 2018 midterm elections — even though he couldn't. A guest on MSNBC's
"Morning Joe" oddly declared Friday that she is worried President Trump may try to invalidate the 2018 midterm elections to
avoid a Democratic Congress — something the President can't actually do. Regular co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika
Brzezinski were absent, but Republican pollster and Washington Examiner columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson more than made up
for the extreme anti-Trump rhetoric that MSNBC viewers have come to expect from the liberal morning show.
Katy Tur Wrongly Claims Trump Hasn't Had a Press Conference Lately. Pam Key at Breitbart reported that Friday
on MSNBC, host Katy Tur said it was "laughable" that President Donald Trump had only had one solo press conference in his
first year. "He's been dodging questions from the press for months now, really. He hasn't had a press conference
since what, February?" she asked NBC's Kristen Welker. "That is laughable. It's laughable, Kris, that the
president can't stand in front of the press and take questions from the press." This is self-evidently untrue.
York Times Column Says Trump Is About To Stage A Coup. A New York Times contributor cranked the President
Donald Trump-hysteria-meter to 11 on Thursday when he wrote the president "and his allies seem on the verge of staging a coup
against independent institutions and the rule of law." In the column "The Real Coup Plot Is Trump's," New York Times
contributor and Harvard University lecturer Yascha Mounk warns readers about the upcoming assault on American democracy that
the president is plotting. Fox News host Jesse Watters recently claimed that in the midst of all the alleged bias
within the FBI, that "we have a coup on our hands in America." Mounk doesn't cite any evidence that Trump is preparing to
fire special counsel Robert Mueller — the president, after all, has said repeatedly that he doesn't intend to.
Guest: 'Psychologically Deranged' Trump May 'Destroy Our Democracy'. A guest on MSNBC Monday called President
Trump "psychologically deranged" and suggested he might destroy democracy in America. Richard Painter, appearing on
"The Beat With Ari Melber," said, "Well, I think we are in danger, our democracy's in danger. But there's one person in
control of the military right now, the commander-in-chief is Donald Trump. And there is a risk of him using that power
to destroy our democracy, whether you call it a coup or anything else. But it's not from the critics of Donald Trump
that the danger is posed. It's the fact that the man who is commander-in-chief of our military engaged in obstruction
of justice and other crimes is also psychologically deranged."
A Stain On America.
It would be a full-time job to keep track of the Democratic Party media's failed attacks on President Trump and his
administration. [...] Maybe someone, somewhere, is keeping count of the liberal media's lies about Trump, but it would be a
superhuman task to keep up. The president's comment was prompted in part by an absurd tweet by the Washington Post's
Dave Weigel, who was fired by the Post some years ago for his participation in the surreptitious, left-wing JournoList.
Weigel rejoined the Post after rehabilitating himself with MSNBC and Slate. I used to say that the Post is the most
respectable voice of the Democratic Party, but I am not sure that compliment is still warranted.
[Condemn] Demented Donald as Worse Than Bin Laden and Comparable to Charles Manson. Liberal reporters and hosts
are closing out the year with a bang, spending the last month damning Donald Trump as an "unhinged" "sociopathic" mental case
who was comparable to Charles Manson and Osama Bin Laden. Also, journalists like CNN's Brian Stelter and former CBS
Evening News anchor Dan Rather continued to get on their high-horse as they proclaimed they were the "Pro-Truth" guardians
against Trump's "unrelenting campaign against the press."
McCain aide Steve Schmidt: Trump's 'impairment is chilling'. Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) former
presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday [12/7/2017] that President Trump was "clearly slurring his
words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is
chilling." "I don't know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker's critique that the president
of the United States is unstable, that he's dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of
Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an MSNBC contributor, on
MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
Joe' contemplates Trump's mental 'stability' after dry-mouth speech. The panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe"
suggested Thursday [12/7/2017] that President Trump is suffering from diminished mental capacity after he delivered a speech
and slurred some of his words toward the end. Republican strategist and MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt, a regular on
the show, said Trump appeared to have an "impairment" and called it "chilling" to watch. "This is not the person that
we knew even three years ago. ... There's a remarkable change," said host Joe Scarborough. "He seemed like he was
almost hanging on to the prompter and hanging on to the words," co-host Mika Brzezinski said. "Something, I don't know.
... There was a struggle happening."
"Trump is Dangerous and More Unpredictable
than Kim Jong-un", Says Kremlin Propagandist. There have been many signs of "buyers' remorse" from the Kremlin
over US President Donald Trump, but perhaps the starkest pronouncement has come from top Kremlin propagandist Dmitry
Kiselyov — in typical over-the-top style — claiming that Trump is "dangerous" and "more unpredictable"
than North Korea's despotic leader Kim Jong-un. [12/3/2017]
Jumped: Chelsea Handler Actually Blamed Trump For Starting The California Wildfires. I'm not sure how
many sharks Chelsea Handler will jump before she's put on the list of stars Hollywood is shying away from, but Handler added
another reason to the Scrooge McDuck pile she's already got going. Handler informed Twitter that she's having to
abandon her home. While my heart goes out to her, she turned the moment political to strike at Trump and —
I'm not kidding here — blame him for starting the fire.
Handler: Donald Trump Set The California Wildfire. Always one to inject deep thoughts into any difficult
situation, Chelsea Handler is now accusing Donald Trump of "literally and figuratively" setting the wildfires raging across
the Los Angeles area. Nearly 200,000 people have been evacuated and more than 200 have lost their homes to the brush fires
which have engulfed the Sepulveda Pass in the Santa Monica mountains and now threaten places like Hollywood and Bel Aire.
Look who's talking.
Trump doesn't have any 'principles and beliefs'. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump in an
interview, saying he doesn't think the president has "principles and beliefs." "I don't agree with the way he's
conducting his presidency, obviously," McCain said during an interview with Esquire. "He's an individual that
unfortunately is not anchored by a set of principles. I think he's a person who takes advantage of situations."
Compares Charles Manson To Trump, 'Far Right'. Newsweek and The New York Times quickly tied Charles Manson to
right-wing politics after the murderous cult leader's death on Sunday [11/19/2017]. A Newsweek piece by Melissa Matthews
compared the charismatic nature of Manson to President Donald Trump, noting that both men used language to gain followers —
a common characteristic of most politicians. The piece explains that psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American
Psychoanalytic Association, sees similarities in the way that Manson and Trump are able to talk to people who feel "marginalized or
alienated." Smaller is clear that he doesn't think they share any beliefs, but the comparison paints a different picture for
Trump's liberal critics seem increasingly unhinged? Last week's anniversary of Trump's election sparked
widespread teeth-gnashing by the nation's pundits. Trump is supposedly the gravest threat to American democracy since
the secession of the Confederacy. His presidency, probably, continues to be a boon for antidepressant sales across the
land. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, in a column last week headlined "Anniversary of the Apocalypse,"
lamented the "terror-struck and vertiginous days" after Trump's win and the ongoing "metaphysical whiplash" and "hideous
interregnum," which leaves her "poleaxed by grief at the destruction of our civic inheritance." Professor Henry Giroux of
McMaster University frothed that Trump's "ascendancy in American politics has made visible a culture of cruelty, a contempt
for civic literacy, a corrupt mode of governance and a disdain for informed judgment that has been decades in the making."
Trump didn't ruin America's economy. Foreign tourism to New York City is set to rise 3.6 percent this
year — defying yet another of the many doomsday predictions about Donald Trump's presidency. Back in
February, the city tourism agency said Trump's "travel ban and related rhetoric" would mean a drop of 300,000 visitors this
year. But the NYC & Co. prophecy proved false. Of course, other predictions were more dire —
particularly those about the stock market. Finance expert Steve Rattner foresaw "a market crash of historic
proportions" under a President Trump. Moody's warned of a "weaker" economy. Many said 2 percent GDP growth was
the best that could be hoped for. Other doomsayers included Mark Cuban, CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin and firms such as
Bridgewater Associates and Macroeconomic Advisers.
Olbermann: President Trump a 'Pig' for Invoking God Instead of Gun Control. Within hours of the
horrendous Texas church shooting, Keith Olbermann called President Donald Trump a "pig" for invoking God instead of gun
control. The shooting occurred Sunday morning [11/5/2017] in Sutherland Springs, Texas, where a 26-year-old man who
was reportedly "an atheist" and who thought Christians were "stupid" opened fire on the congregants of First Baptist
Church. The attacker killed 26 people. His violence was stopped by a good guy with a gun who "took
cover behind a car" and shot at the attacker.
Olbermann: Bin Laden Did Less To Hurt America Than Trump. GQ's Keith Olbermann said on 'The View' Friday [11/3/2017] that
he truly believes President Donald Trump is more harmful to America than Osama Bin Laden. "You said recently via tweet that, 'Trump and
his family have done more harm to America than ISIS and Bin Laden combined," cohost Sunny Hostin said as the audience clapped.
Reporter Rips Trump For Not Calling for Death Penalty for (Already Dead) Vegas Shooter. In making a point about
the difference between President Donald Trump's reaction to the Las Vegas shooting and the NYC terror attack, WSJ
reporter Eli Stokols made a pretty obvious mistake by questioning why Trump didn't demand the death penalty for the assailant
who killed 58 concert goers in last month. Stokols, an MSNBC contributor, spoke with Nicolle Wallace Thursday [11/2/2017]
about the President saying the NYC terrorist should get the death penalty. And Stokols talked about the difference in how
Trump approaches these attacks compared to others.
16 women who accused Trump of sexual harassment are lying, says the White House. All the women who have accused
President Donald Trump of sexual harassment are lying, the White House has said. When posed the question by CBS about
the 16 women who have accused the President — and whether the official position of the White House was that they were
lying — Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "Yeah, we've been clear on that from the beginning and the
president has spoken on it." Mr Trump addressed the accusations last week and dismissed them as "totally fake news...
It's fake, it's made-up stuff. And it's disgraceful what happens."
chairman: Trump 'most dangerous' president ever. Trying to quell accusations that he is ousting activists
from the party's left flank, Democratic Chairman Tom Perez told fellow Democrats on Saturday [10/21/2017] that unity is crucial
in the fight against President Donald Trump, whom he lambasted as an "existential threat" to the nation.
is not "crucial to our democracy". The president is not "undermining the foundations of our democracy."
Donald Trump strengthened them. He did not accept a billion dollars in bribes and payoffs from big corporations and
rich creeps like Harvey Weinstein. Spending half as much, Trump [defeated] Hillary and her media minions. [Bob]
Schieffer, [Brian] Stelter, and their ilk tried to thwart the election with biased coverage. It is not working.
It undermines their credibility.
Clinton falsely claims Donald Trump is an 'admitted sex assaulter' — but claims allegations against Bill are
"clearly in the past". Hillary Clinton today [10/13/2017] falsely called Donald Trump an "admitted sex
assaulter" and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein. [...] In fact Trump has not admitted he
committed sexual assault and said that he was indulging in "locker room talk". [...] "There has to be a recognition that we
must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic." And asked about allegations of sexual
misconduct levelled at her husband and former president, Bill Clinton, she said: "That has all been litigated." "That
was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past. [...]"
might want to think twice before exalting Eminem as their new leader. At the BET Hip-Hop Awards Tuesday night,
rapper Eminem became the latest in a long line of celebrities to bash President Trump when he debuted a fiercely anti-Trump
diatribe dressed up as a freestyle rap. For four bleeped-out, profanity-laced minutes, Eminem slammed the president as
a racist, bigot and "a kamikaze that'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust."
professor suggests Trump deserves blame for Las Vegas massacre. A university professor in Las Vegas was filmed
in class this week suggesting President Trump deserves some blame for the city's shooting massacre because "all he's done" is
"encourage violence." "Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won't be
affected by this presidency, but others are going to die," University of Nevada, Las Vegas history professor Tessa Winkelmann
said Thursday [10/5/2017], according to video obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "Other people will die because
of this. And we've seen this happen, right?"
furious over teacher's 'shooting at Trump' quiz answer. A teacher at Wyoming's Jackson Hole High School on
Thursday gave her students a multiple choice quiz that referenced shooting President Trump. Parent Jim McCollum told me
he was furious about the question — especially since the quiz was administered four days after the Las Vegas
massacre. "This is not right. You don't do that to a sitting president — you respect the office,"
McCollum told me in a telephone interview. "They used Trump's name — insinuating gun violence and shooting
the president." "As torn apart as the country is right now, I could not tolerate that and let that go without saying
something," he said.
Falsely Reports Trump Admin Blocked Puerto Ricans From Using Food Stamps for Hot Meals. The New York
Times falsely reported earlier this week that the Trump administration was blocking food stamp recipients in
hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico from using the federal subsistence to eat hot meals. On Tuesday [10/3/2017], the
Times reported Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló complained, "the federal government had denied a request to
allow hurricane victims in Puerto Rico who use food stamps to redeem them at fast-food restaurants and other places that
serve prepared hot meals." "He [Rosselló] said he was pursuing the issue with federal officials and was hoping the
waiver would come soon," the Times reported. But after the piece had already been up for 24 hours, it was
updated to admit the claim was inaccurate.
Any Part Of The Russia Election Hacking Story True? In June, Samuel Liles, the Department of Homeland
Security's acting director of the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Cyber Division, told Congress that "the Russian
government tried to hack election-related computer systems in 21 states." Then, earlier this month, the election hacking
story made headlines again when DHS officials notified state officials in 21 states about the attempts to breach their voter
registration systems. This sparked renewed outrage from Democrats about how the election results had been "hacked" by
Russia. But then the story started to fall apart, when Wisconsin and California said DHS was wrong about their systems
being targeted. California found that Russia hadn't scanned its Secretary of State website at all.
Dear Media —
Stop Using Tragedy for Your Political Ends! The media — upset that the Trump Administration was
actually ready for Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and did a decent job of helping the victims in Texas and Florida —
now has a new strawman to beat in the "Trump is a racist" narrative. Apparently Trump and Congress don't care about
Puerto Rico, because racism, or oppression, or they're not a state, or something. Of course, if you ask the people and
the government officials in Puerto Rico, the story is a bit different. Not that they don't need more help, but to claim
the response was inadequate due to racism is both bogus and offensive.
Clinton peddles fake news about Trump and Puerto Rico. Frustrated by the justifiably high marks President Trump
received for the federal government's response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, portions of the left are attacking Trump for
allegedly not being sufficiently concerned about Hurricane Maria, which pounded Puerto Rico. Hillary Clinton is doing
her part. She slammed the president for his near silence about the situation in Puerto Rico. Ever the snob,
Clinton stated, with no apparent basis, "I'm not sure he knows that Puerto Ricans are American citizens."
calls for all NFL players to kneel during national anthem. Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.)
tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday [9/24/2017] in response to President
Trump's remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick. Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a "white
supremacist who squats in our White House" in her tweet.
apology, who's got an apology? ESPN, the sports network, is part of Disney entertainment enterprises, and last
week one of its "anchors," a $1.98 cent [sic] word for "announcer," or "reader," had to be disciplined by the network for telling
her semi-vast following that "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists."
She said it in a tweet, naturally, the preferred communication of those unable to speak words of more than one syllable. She
offended a lot of people, or at least some people. How could she not? Taking offense is the great American pastime.
Ms. Hill is, of course, entitled to her opinion, however ill-informed by liberal group-think, but she should have known that
even as a commentator, entitled to pop off about whatever pops into her mind, she should beware of making a fool of herself.
Says Trump "Creates Fear in Children". Lily Garcia, president of the NEA — the largest, most
progressive, and most activist teacher's union in the country — just used her bully pulpit to address America's
foremost educational issue. According to Garcia, that issue is not our failing government schools, the exploding cost
and shrinking results of our classrooms, or the developmentally inappropriate leftist social engineering that has replaced
genuine education. No, the key issue facing our government schools is that Donald Trump is upsetting teachers and
making school children cry because of his evil Trump ways. Specifically, Trump's policies towards Muslims, Mexicans,
and transgender students are allegedly causing classroom meltdowns in elementary and middle schools across the nation.
So much so, that teachers are forced to take valuable classroom time to "comfort crying children because they are afraid of
their president." All of which brings up the question: why are very young children being exposed to such adult
issues — topics way beyond their ability to process and comprehend — in the first place?
Human Rights Chief: Trump's Criticisms of Media Could Amount to 'Incitement' of Violence. United Nations
Human Rights Chief Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein expressed concern Wednesday over President Trump's "repeated attacks" on the
media. Zeid brought up Trump's criticism of CNN, the New York Times and Washington Post. "To call
these news organizations 'fake' does tremendous damage and to refer to individual journalists in this way," he said, "I have
to ask the question, is this not an incitement for others to attack journalists?" "And let's assume a journalist is harmed
from one of these organizations, does the president not bear responsibility for this, for having fanned this?" Zeid asked
reporters in a Geneva press conference.
& Politicians Admitting They Lied About Russia. It has been nearly three weeks since The Nation pushed an
explosive memo from the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity into mainstream consciousness with an article detailing
the evidence that the DNC leaks last year could not have been the result of a Russian hack. By continuing to ignore it,
the US intelligence community and all the pundits and politicians who have advanced the Russian hacking narrative are tacitly
admitting that they lied.
Lives Matter Founder Claims Trump Is Trying To Commit Hitler-Like Genocide. The co-founder of Black Lives
Matter believes President Trump is "literally" trying to "kill our communities" on a scale comparable to Adolf Hitler.
"We wouldn't as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn't have done that with Hitler. Trump is
literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country, be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia and he has set out
the most dangerous policies not just that impacts this country but that impacts the globe," Patrisse Cullors, one of BLM's
three co-founders, told the Los Angeles Times in a Friday [8/25/2017] interview.
Attacks on America and Trump. Let's start by noticing the obvious. The biggest hate group in America —
by a wide margin — is the anti-Trump chorus, which has advanced from calling him "unfit to be president" to accusing him
(in the words of CNN's Ana Navarro) of being "unfit to be human." In between are malignant accusations that he is a "neo-Nazi,"
a "white nationalist" and a "white supremacist" — all revelations about Trump's character that somehow remained hidden
during the thirty years he was a public figure and before he ran against Hillary Clinton. Nor is the hate confined to Trump
alone but includes his aides and supporters. Congressman Jerrold Nadler and other House Democrats have even attacked Trump's
policy adviser Stephen Miller as a "white supremacist" for defending a merit-based immigration reform. The attacks from the
anti-Trump left also include the charge that America itself is a "white supremacist" country.
Fantasies Have Unhinged The Left. I'm worried that the Charlottesville riots are making the Left
psychologically unhinged in the same way that they have been unhinged by the election of Donald Trump, only more so.
The problem with their reaction to Donald Trump is that he seems to so totally vindicate all of their political prejudices
that he justifies an even more vicious vilification of anyone who opposes their agenda.
Nazis and KKK are Trump's base, how did he win the election? [Scroll down] CNN contributor, presidential
historian, and left-wing Democrat Douglas Brinkley supplies an actual number, saying "10 to 15 percent of Trump's base are
KKK white nationalists and alt-right racists." Really? Given that Trump received about 63 million votes, that would
mean close to 10 million are KKK members or racists. The broader implication is that those of us who voted for Donald
Trump and still support him are all racists. Not in the abstract, either. A friend of over 40 years who despises
Donald Trump called me "a white racist" over my continued support of the president. As if calling me names will make me
change my mind.
Warns Trump: Pardoning Arpaio Would Be 'Presidential Endorsement of Racism'. If President Trump pardons
former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it "would be an official presidential endorsement of racism," the American Civil
Liberties Union said on Monday [8/14/2017]. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal
immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop
detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally.
of Charlottesville: Trump Intentionally Courted White Supremacists. Sunday [8/13/2017] on CNN's "State
of the Union," Charlottesville, VA Mayor Michael Signer reacted to the violence Saturday at in his city at a protest, which
left three dead and 19 injured. Signer said President Donald Trump contributed to the violence with his "intentional
courting" of "white supremacists."
Ruben Gallego: 'We Just Have to Admit' Donald Trump Is an 'Absolute Racist'. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) made it clear
he has no intention to stop reminding people that President Trump is bigoted against Muslims. The congressman spoke
with radio host and Mediaite contributor Dean Obeidallah, where they discussed the fallout from the recent bomb attack
against a mosque in Minnesota. The Trump Administration has been noticeably reluctant to comment about the matter, and
Gallego slammed the president for marginalizing Muslims around the country with his rhetoric instead of promising to protect
them as citizens.
Rowling Apologizes to Trump for Falsely Accusing Him. Well, sort of. J.K. Rowling actually apologized to
the little boy and his family, not President Trump. But whatever. She says she is apologizing 'unreservedly' over
tweeting out in anger at Trump after viewing a selectively edited clip showing Trump snubbing a disabled child. Except
that is not what happened at all. The originator of the tweet deleted it fairly quickly, but liberals had already
pounced on it and it went viral.
Rowling Lies About Donald Trump And Apologizes — To Someone Else. Yesterday [7/31/2017], apparently
somebody finally informed J.K. Rowling that her wildly popular public criticism of Donald Trump was actually based on a
falsehood. Over the weekend, Rowling had issued a series of mega-viral tweets in which she lambasted the president for
refusing to shake a disabled boy's hand at a White House event, calling Trump's behavior "stunning" and "horrible."
Surprise: Rowling was 100 percent wrong. Trump had actually spent a long moment engaging with the boy in a
friendly manner. It is not too much to assume, in the age of instant communication and 24/7 social media, that Rowling
might have taken fewer than three days to fix her flatly untrue and vicious slander of Trump, but better late than never, I
suppose. Nevertheless, her mea culpa on the matter falls somewhat short of an actual admittance of guilt, in a
way that should be rather embarrassing, at least for anyone who stopped to think before writing it.
Rowling's Disappointing Non-Apology To Trump. Last year I wrote about a speech J.K. Rowling gave at the PEN
literary awards gala on the importance of free speech. Rowling took the classical liberal line saying the answer to
speech that offends you is not a safe space but more speech. She went even further, warning that anyone who attempts to
silence speech they disagree with is traveling the path of tyrants. Rowling even used the example of a petition to keep
Trump out the the UK, saying it was a mistake to try to silence him even though she considered him a "bigot."
Trump Boy Scout Speech
Is Nazi Hitler Youth Rally, Left Says. President Donald Trump brought his bombastic politics to a Boy Scouts
event Monday [7/24/2017] in West Virginia, drawing cheers from the children gathered at the event and prompting comparisons
between his rousing rhetoric and Nazi youth rallies from some liberal activists and journalists.
of Universal Truths in Poland. Had Donald Trump given the Gettysburg Address, liberals would have called it
insultingly brief. No matter how eloquently and sensibly he speaks, they stand ready to snipe at him.
No sooner had he finished his stellar remarks in Poland than they grabbed for their wet blankets.
'Intellectuals': It's Racist for Trump to Defend the West. Left-wing pundits reacted angrily to President
Donald Trump's speech in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday [7/6/2017], accusing him of racism for defending the "West." Peter Beinart,
writing in The Atlantic, asserted: "The West is a racial and religious term." He added: "To be considered
Western, a country must be largely Christian (preferably Protestant or Catholic) and largely white." Therefore, he said,
Trump's speech was racist, because some Europeans are Muslim, and some nations that have embraced democracy or modernity are
outside the West's geographic boundaries. "India is the world's largest democracy. Japan is among its most
economically advanced nations. No one considers them part of the West," he noted.
Joan Walsh: 'Really Good Research' Proves Trump Voters Motivated By 'Fears Of Brown People. The idea of liberals doing
any sort of research, let alone "really good research," is nothing short of absolutely laughable. The fact that Joan Walsh had
the gall to get up and say that she researched something (or someone else researched it and she's just parroting it without taking a
gander into the facts) is humorous enough. Yet more hilarious is the idea that "really good research shows" that Trump voters
only elected the Republican President because of their "fear of brown people."
Scarborough Calls President Trump 'Greatest Liar That's Ever Sat In The White House'. MSNBC "Morning Joe"
co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski bashed President Donald Trump Wednesday, calling him worse than former President
Richard Nixon and the "greatest liar that's ever sat in the white house." Scarborough played a clip of Brian Karem,
executive editor of The Sentinel Newspapers, at Tuesday's [6/27/2017] White House briefing challenging Deputy Press Secretary Sarah
Huckabee Sanders, saying her criticism of the media was inflaming the American people. Sanders responded at the briefing
by citing a debunked Washington Post story stating reporters were not being thorough enough in their critiques of the president.
The Editor says...
Mr. Scarborough should spend some time reading my partial catalog of Obama's lies.
Antithesis of Obstruction. The "collusion" narrative was a fraud, plain and simple. We know that
now. Hopefully, it won't take another six months to grasp a second plain and simple truth: Collusion's successor,
the "obstruction" narrative, is a perversion. The Left loves narrative. The ever-expanding story manipulates
time, space, and detail to fit a thematic framework. Political narrative has some surface appeal, but it is deeply
flawed. It obscures plain and simple truth. So let's stick with the plain and simple: The essence of
obstruction is to frustrate the search for truth. Its antithesis is to demand the exposure of fraud.
firm behind the Trump 'dirty dossier' refusing to cooperate with Congress. The Washington firm that
commissioned the dirty dossier on President Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators. In a piece for the New
York Post, conservative author Paul Sperry writes that the firm, Fusion GPS, which was started by three former Wall Street
Journal reporters, is not cooperating with Congress in order to cover up an allegiance to the Democratic party.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is spearheading an investigation into the
dossier, and wants to know the identities of the people who paid Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump.
Urine trouble, Washington.
Five months after the once-respected Jake Tapper and Carl Bernstein at CNN reported on a dodgy dossier about President Trump
hiring hookers to whiz on a bed Obama slept in, we find out from whence that cockamamie collection of claptrap came.
Camp Hillary. That's correct. The billion-dollar loser hired a staff of weirdos who came up with this urinal joke.
Firm behind Trump dossier is stalling investigation. A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious
intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections
to the Democratic Party. The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS,
after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier,
which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.
all Trump's fault — even Scalise shooting, beatings and traffic deaths. A crazed leftist attempts to
kill Republicans on a baseball field, a congressional candidate beats up a reporter, and an increase in traffic deaths.
What do these all have in common? Liberal journalists managed to blame all of these incidents on President Donald
Trump. In the days after the baseball field shooting of Congressional Republicans there was much talk about violent
political rhetoric inciting the Bernie Sanders-supporting shooter, but former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson,
perversely blamed Trump and the GOP because they benefit from "a kind of rage machine."
Big Collusion Narrative Keeps Melting Down. After two days and almost six hours of high-stakes public
testimony, I'm struck by the total lack of any compelling claims supporting the "big" collusion narrative, that Russia
conspired with Trump or Trump officials to "hack" election. While we certainly aren't privy to all the relevant
information or all the relevant testimony, nothing that James Comey said last week or that Jeff Sessions said today (much
less any of the questions directed his way) contained so much as a meaningful hint that the Committee was on the verge of
uncovering the political scandal of the century. Rather, the focus keeps shifting to much narrower questions regarding
Trump's decision to fire James Comey — questions that are important but far less historically consequential than
any claim that a president or his attorney general are traitors to their country.
Muslim still blames Trump for "racism" after Pulse nightclub shooting. While most college graduates are
settling in for the summer and basking in their recent accomplishments with family and friends, one newly-minted graduate is
blaming President Trump for anti-Muslim sentiment one year following the terrorist attack in Pulse nightclub in
Orlando. In a New York Times opinion piece, "A night of terror, a year of racism," Adam Manno — a gay
American man whose father is from Pakistan — says Trump's language is scaring American Muslims because it
supposedly fosters Islamophobia among the general population.
The Real Collusion.
Maybe it will be remembered as the weekend when, at long last, the media-Democrat complex overplayed its hand on the
"Collusion with Russia" narrative. They are still having so much fun with the new "Jared back-channel to the Kremlin"
angle, they appear not to realize it destroys their collusion yarn. Their giddiness is understandable. The new
story is irresistible: President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in a December 2016 Trump Tower meeting with the
ubiquitous Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, discussed setting up a communications "back-channel" between the incoming
administration and the Kremlin.
vast right-wing conspiracy 2.0, Russia edition. Hillary Clinton did something more interesting Wednesday [5/31/2017] than
blame others for her loss in last year's presidential election. She has done that many times before, though her dig at the
Democratic National Committee was a new and interesting twist. Clinton publicly stitched together a comprehensive theory of
how Russian interference into the 2016 campaign led to her defeat at the hands of President Trump. That theory may prove
to be conspiratorial nonsense or the dominant storyline of the Russia probe. But Clinton spelled it out more clearly and
succinctly than ever before, laying it all out in the public eye.
launches astonishing conspiracy claim that Trump won the election because he 'colluded' with 1,000 Russian agents. Hillary
Clinton launched an all-out assault on Donald Trump Wednesday [5/31/2017], claiming he must have 'guided' Russian efforts to keep her out
of the White House. Openly saying that she believed he had 'colluded' with Russia, she made an astonishing series of claims about
the presidential election, including claiming that the 'vast majority' of news about her on Facebook was 'fake'. She even cited
'Pizzagate', claiming that claims she was involved in a child sex-trafficking network in a Washington D.C. restaurant had helped swing
'low information voters'.
The Democrats' Second
Secession & America's New Civil War. [Scroll down] According to the Gallup organization, the normal duration of a presidential honeymoon in
recent times has been seven months. The Democrats didn't give Trump seven seconds. While he was president-elect, they were already attacking
him as a racist, a "white nationalist," anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim; also an anti-democratic "fascist" — a would-be dictator. His
election was called illegitimate, the alleged agent of a Russian conspiracy. This meme swiftly metastasized into one of the most bizarre
witch-hunts in our political history, a "red scare" without actual reds, in which Democrat after Democrat stepped forward to allege that Trump
had colluded with Vladimir Putin to steal the election.
Say John Podesta, Robby Mook Wrote the Russia Narrative 24 Hours After Hillary Lost. Two days after the
election, Hillary Clinton blamed her loss on the FBI (James Comey), the KGB, and the KKK who supported Donald Trump according
to her. Liberal Jonathan Allen who is a Politico editor, and Amy Parnes who writes for the left-leaning The Hill wrote
in their new book, Shattered that the Clinton Campaign (John Podesta and Robby Mook) hatched the Russia narrative 24 hours
after her loss as an excuse for their campaign failure. These reporters were embedded with the campaign.
Left-Wing Russia Conspiracy Exposed. First, observers should note that none of these conspiracy theorists have
ever spelled out what they think occurred between Trump and Putin. They throw around the term "collusion"
without ever specifying any other details. There's a good reason for this: They know that if they actually
specified what they are thinking — or, more precisely, what they want for Americans to think — they
would be exposed for the shameless, deceitful partisan hacks they are. After all, the Democrats and the GOP
NeverTrumpers expect for the rest of us to believe that, together, Trump and Putin "colluded" to enable the
former — a man ridiculed and mocked by his enemies as a buffoon and clown right up until election
night — to prevail over Hillary Clinton in a decisive Electoral College win.
senators blame Trump for rise in hate crimes during hearing. There was a recurring accusation from Democrats
during Tuesday's [5/2/2017] Senate Judiciary Committee hearing: President Trump is to blame for a rise in hate
crimes. "It's no accident that there is a rise in hate crimes because we're in an environment where the president
targets Muslims with his language," said Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii during a hearing on hate crimes, referring to
Trump's travel ban. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., also attempted to correlate having Steve Bannon in the White House
as chief strategist to the rise in hate crimes.
Trump 'Wants to Kill Us' — 'It's a Dangerous Time for the First Amendment'. On Tuesday's [5/2/2017] broadcast
of NBC's "Late Night With Seth Meyers," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow stated that there's a "tension" in the news media where it's both "a
dangerous time for the First Amendment" and the press is "oddly influential with" President Trump, "who wants to kill us."
Trump Is Bad at Being a Tyrant.
To be sure, Trump manipulated the media in much the same way savvy dictators do. Also, he is loud and he loves gold. And
he doesn't tolerate nonsense from the "lying press." Where I was raised, though, what Trump has been doing with the media is called
standing up for yourself. To the media, however, a Republican that stands up for himself is "dangerous."
But Calling Weak Q1 GDP a 'Report Card' On Trump Is Absurd. The economy's weak 0.7% growth in the first quarter was disappointing, to
say the least, the worst gain in three years. But to the Trump-despising big media, it seems, it's really a sign of his failure.
admits anti-Trump dossier's sensational charge unverified, says Clinton backer betrayed him. Christopher
Steele, the former British spy who wrote the infamous anti-Donald Trump dossier, acknowledges that a sensational charge his
sources made about a tech company CEO and Democratic Party hacking is unverified. In a court filing, Mr. Steele
also says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed
to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.
tells child that Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist: report. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., told a
sixth grader last week that she should be worried because President Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. During
the Q&A portion of a town hall event held at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier took a final question
from 11-year-old Eden, according to a report published Saturday [4/22/2017].
Revelation: Clinton Campaign Hatched Russian Hacking Narrative 24 Hours After Hillary's Loss. The new Clinton
campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, reveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed
blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling "within twenty-four hours of her concession speech." The blistering
behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the
FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump's supposed support from "white nationalists."
Media Try to Lay Waste to the Trump Administration. According to Barack Obama's Director of National Intelligence James Clapper,
there is "no evidence" that the Russians colluded with President Trump to swing the election. And there is no evidence that the Russians
interfered with election tallies. Yet allegations of Russian connections have become an article of faith for the mainstream media and
liberal comedy hosts. But as we've pointed out on many occasions, Hillary Clinton's financial and business relations with the Russians
far exceeded anything that could be attributed to Trump.
Liberal Pollster Tweets, Falsely, That Trump Didn't
Go to Church on Easter Sunday. He claims the tweet, which was factually inaccurate, wasn't factually
inaccurate. Because even though Trump did go to Easter service in Palm Beach, it wasn't on Trump's official Sunday
schedule as released at around 8am. But he did go.
Fareed Zakaria: Were Obama Still President, He Would Have Ordered "Similar If Not Identical" Strike In
Syria. CNN's Fareed Zakaria discusses his experience with "Trump derangement syndrome," where people's hatred
and anger towards the president is so intense that it impairs their judgment. He talks about Obama speechwriters
attacking Trump for doing exactly what President Obama would have done in Syria.
Russiagate Scam Will Blow Up In The Democrats' Smug Faces. As Hugh Hewitt says, this scandal has three
silos. The first silo is the question of whether the Russians somehow "hacked our election." The second silo is whether
any Trump people "colluded" with the Russians. The third silo, the one patriots care most about since it's the one that
isn't a ridiculous fantasy, is whether anyone in Obama's administration used our intelligence apparatus to spy on his and
Hillary's political opponents. The answers are "No," "No," and "Yes."
the "Russia Meddled in the Election". Last week The Duran's Alexander Mercouris thoroughly debunked the
Russiagate narrative being spewed out by the Hillary aristocracy, Democrats, mainstream media, and anyone else with less than
half a brain and zero deductive reasoning skills. We strongly recommend you read the post, "Here's why the whole
Russiagate scenario set out in Trump Dossier is totally absurd" to get a big picture explanation as to why the Russia
election meddling story is fiction even too ridiculous for Hollywood.
Here's why the whole Russiagate
scenario set out in Trump Dossier is totally absurd. It has become increasingly clear over the last two weeks
that the amateur sleuths who are driving Russiagate are taking the Trump Dossier prepared by the British ex-MI6 officer
Christopher Steele as their starting point. This is despite the fact that the Trump Dossier is still "uncorroborated",
and has been trashed by seasoned intelligence professionals like former CIA Acting Assistant Director Michael Morell.
Right from the first moment the Trump Dossier was first published I speculated that it might be the original source of the
'Russiagate' story. Here is what I wrote about it on 11th January 2017, immediately after it was published
pressing FBI's McCabe in Trump-Russia dossier case. The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is poking
around for more information on the spurious dossier leaked to the media ahead of President Trump's inauguration —
this time, homing in on Andrew McCabe, the second in command at the FBI. In a March 28 letter, Sen. Charles
Grassley, R-Iowa, told FBI Director James Comey he wants a detailed description on the involvement of Deputy Director McCabe
in the investigation of Russian ties to Trump associates.
Burgeoning Market For Anti-Trump Hoaxes. The insatiable demand for tales that embarrass the president is creating
its own supply. Case in point is the most recent KittenFeed story. On Tuesday [3/21/2017], the New York Observer ran
an exclusive piece with the headline: "Trump Sics Lawyers on Teen for Making Silly Site Where Kittens Punch Him." It
claimed that a 17-year-old girl in San Francisco had received two cease-and-desist letters from the Trump Organization. A
multitude of other news sites, bloggers and social networks immediately ran with the story, which now appears to be a hoax.
Why would someone do this? A clue is in the traffic to KittenFeed.com, which exploded once the story hit the web.
Rice is the Wrong Person to Attack Trump's Credibility. In a recent opinion column for The Washington Post,
former United Nations ambassador and national security advisor to Barack Obama, Susan Rice, had the temerity to lecture
President Donald Trump about telling the truth. She writes that "our friends must be able to trust the word of the U.S.
president." This extends far beyond hypocrisy coming from a person who visited five Sunday talk shows to peddle
administration falsehoods about the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya. In addition, she served in those positions
during a period of other disastrous foreign policy decisions — deceptively sold to the American
people — such as the Iran nuclear deal and the entire Libyan debacle.
Major Holes In Rep. Adam Schiff's Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theory. On Monday, Rep. Adam Schiff, the
ranking Democrat on a House intelligence committee, delivered his opening statements at a hearing where he laid out the case
for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Schiff repeatedly raised questions about alleged
collusion between Moscow and members of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Here are four serious problems with
Schiff's charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source: [...]
Intelligence Dems Admit There May Be ZERO Evidence Of Collusion Between Russians And Trump Campaign. As Guy
wrote last week, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) has retreated from his claim that there's solid evidence of collusion between
the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence agencies. Now, his colleagues on the Senate Intelligence Committee also
concede that there may be zero evidence of such activity after a month into their investigation.
Maxine Waters Walks Back Claim Russia Dossier Is 'Absolutely True'. Rep. Maxine Waters, a Democrat from California, walked
back her claim on Thursday that seemed to confirm the existence of compromising tapes of President Donald Trump with Russian prostitutes without
providing any evidence. The congresswoman's office released a clarification on Thursday [3/9/2017] after she said on MSNBC earlier in the
day that the sex allegations in an unverified dossier claiming that Russia has compromising information about Trump were "absolutely true."
An aide to Waters said that she had not leaked any classified or new information.
Beltway Conspiracy to Break Trump. At the heart of the case against Trump is what appears to be a Big
Lie. It is that Vladimir Putin and Russian intelligence hacked the DNC and John Podesta's email account, then colluded
with Trump's friends or associates to systematically sabotage Hillary Clinton's campaign. Therefore, Trump stole the
election and is an illegitimate president. In this city, Trump is looked upon as a border-jumper, an illegal
alien. Yet let us consider the constituent components of the charge.
Tur: Like Putin, Trump Might Kill Journalists. [Scroll down] It is Tur who is heading down a
"dangerous path." I guess because Trump has a "distaste" for negative news coverage, he is going to start murdering
journalists? I guess she sorta forgot Obama's railing against Fox News for eight years. Trump "has made no
secret" of "going after" journalists because, as far as I know, he hasn't ordered an attack on any of them.
Correctness as a Tool of the Liberal Inquisition. We hear from liberals that when President Trump and his followers speak of making America
Great Again we mean Make America White Again. This is a malicious falsehood. It is specious and malevolent. What we mean, as does Mr. Trump,
is that America should once again be prosperous; that the middle class be revived and that good, manufacturing jobs be available so families can live with
dignity; that family life and wholesomeness be once again exalted; that America be crime-free; that Americans be protected from terrorism and inhere a sense
of confidence; and that our elected leaders, a president, love America instead of constantly castigating her. No one I know wants an America where
our African-American brothers and sisters are denied an iota of civil rights.
Suddenly Have Newfound Respect For The CIA. Critics of President-elect Donald Trump appear to have found a new
respect for the Central Intelligence Agency, after years of heated criticism. Journalists highlighted the "insanity" of
CIA Director John Brennan's rebuke of Trump's disparaging accusation of the intelligence agency's possible role in leaking a
salacious dossier on his personal conduct.
Tank Appears To Cut Ties With Oppo Researcher Behind Trump Dossier. A national security think tank appears to
have cut ties with the head of the opposition research firm that is behind the unsubstantiated Donald Trump dossier published
last week. Glenn Simpson, who heads Fusion GPS, was listed on the website for the International Assessment and Strategy
Center (IASC) as recently as this weekend. He joined the Virginia-based think tank in 2009, at around the same time he
quit as a reporter at The Wall Street Journal to start his own private intelligence firm.
The Assassination of Donald
Trump. In a way it's pitiful. John Lewis, d. Ga. Still nursing a head wound from 1966 or '67.
Saying Trump is not a legitimate President because the Russians uncovered that the DNC sabotaged Bernie Sanders' campaign.
Crazy. So Trump fires back that Lewis is a loser. That's schoolyard nothings except for the following. The
almighty New York Times calls Trump a racist for defending himself against a smear. A black reporter at the
Times writes an angry article about Trump as racist... not one fact in it. But no one cares.
