Desperate Leftists Throw Koch Bros., 35-Year-Old PR Tape at Trump

RUSH: Oh, let me get something from the printer. Just got it. Maybe it didn’t print. No, it didn’t print. There is another sign of desperation out there. “Media Advisory: Democrats to Detail Koch Brother ‘Infiltration’ of the Trump Administration.” This is next Wednesday, the Democrats… Where’s this gonna be? At the…? I don’t know where it’s gonna be. Printed it, but it didn’t print. Point is, so what? Okay, the Koch brothers have “‘infiltrated’ the Trump administration.” So what? Trump can have any supporters he wants. There’s no crime there. This is the kind of thing, I mean....

Feinstein denies bowing to left-wing pressure on Trump’s CIA nominee

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Sunday bristled at the suggestion she is reflexively opposing President Trump’s nominee for CIA director to bolster her liberal bona fides during her contested re-election campaign in the left-wing state. In a testy exchange on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Feinstein insisted she is only doing her “due diligence” on Gina Haspel, 61, and played down the role of her insurgent ultra-progressive challenger, state Sen. Kevin de León, in her decisionmaking. Feinstein was pointedly rebuked in February by the California Democratic Party, which declined to endorse her run for Senate during its annual convention. A...

Terrorists in Gun-Free Schools

Pop quiz: True or false:1 Florida’s students are safe – from every conceivable weapon – because the recently enacted Safety Act 2 prevents all violence: indeed, all laws are now followed by, and thus will stop, persons who are mentally ill; as well as persons who commit criminal acts, particularly Islamic jihad. Not so fast. There are a lot of “ifs” to the Safety Act’s Guardian Program:3 “if the sheriff so chooses,” and if the school board approves, to appoint as “a School Guardian,” an individual who has a hyphenated job description – a teacher-administrator, (not just a teacher) – and jumps through more...

#PizzaGate Conspiracy Theorists Go Ballistic Over Actress’ Arrest

One of the most heinous and vile activities that occurs under the radar in the United States is human trafficking, particularly of young children, and particularly for sexual purposes. The reality of the situation is wholly unbearable to imagine, and such an offensive and hellacious thought that many Americans refuse to even partake in conversations about this reality.  The numbers alone are enough to bring a grown man to tears. The Department of Homeland Security defines human trafficking as a “modern-day form of slavery involving the illegal trade of people for exploitation or commercial gain.” In 2012, the International Labor Organization...

Kellyanne is stunned that Dana Bash just ‘went there’ about her hubby, she makes her so very sorry she did

CNN political correspondent Dana Bash unintentionally unleashed White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s fury Sunday by prodding the first woman to successfully head a presidential campaign about her husband’s political opinions. Bad choice,  Miss Bash. Very bad choice indeed. Bash specifically wanted to know “what is up with” her husband’s tweets, which sometimes include criticisms of her boss, President Donald Trump, and his administration. But given as Conway’s husband has no direct affiliation with the Trump administration, she wondered why the heck such a question was even relevant. “He writes a lot of things that are also supportive, and he writes a lot...

Sleeping With the Communist: An ABC Journalist’s Affair With Castro

Some journalists fawned and flattered over communist thug Fidel Castro. But then-ABC reporter Lisa Howard went the extra mile. In Politico Magazine, Friday, Peter Kornbluh recounts Howard’s previously affair. The headline screamed, “‘My Dearest Fidel’: An ABC Journalist’s Secret Liaison With Fidel Castro.”  Kornbluh recounted how Castro initially seduced the journalist:  Castro slipped his arms around the American journalist, and the two lay on the bed, where, as Howard recalled in her diary, Castro “kissed and caressed me … expertly with restrained passion.” “He talked on about wanting to have me,” Howard wrote, but “would not undress or go...

TN: Semi-Naked Man Kills Four At Waffle House, Flees Scene, Still At Large

Hero wrestled gun away from the suspect, saving lives A man wearing only a green jacket shot up a Waffle House in Tennessee, killing four people and wounding several others.  The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Travis Reinking from Illinois.  Police state that they are currently unaware of a motive, but “suspect some mental issues.” After being disarmed by a heroic customer, Reinking reportedly fled the scene completely naked and is still at large.  He was last seen wearing black pants and no shirt.  It is possible he still has two guns in his possession.

10 notes on the Comey memos

Former FBI Director James Comey documented his conversations with President Trump in seven memos (15 pages in all) produced in redacted form by the Department of Justice to Congress last week. I am embedding them below. I want to offer a few, mostly obvious notes and queries on the memos. I think they warrant your attention. Except as part of the perpetual Trump hatefest on CNN and MSNBC, insufficient attention has been paid to the memos. I urge you to take a look and draw your own conclusions. 1. These memos were requested by Congress last year and should have been released long ago. Whey were they kept under wraps for so long? I haven’t seen a good explanation. 2. I think that President Trump has fairly observed the Comey memos demonstrate “NO COLLUSION” and “NO OBSTRUCTION.” The New York Times’s Michael Schmidt mostly overlooks this aspect of the memos, for example, in his six takeaways. By contrast, Politifact argues expressly to the contrary while giving Trump a Pants on Fire rating. I rate Politifact Pants Full of It. 3. One of the headings of Schmidt’s six takeaways asserts that the Steele Dossier’s allegations were corroborated. That is not quite right. Comey makes the assertion comes in the context of his justification for briefing Trump on the dossier’s most lurid story. Comey asserts: “I explained that the analysts from...

Collins to Comey: Was this really the best time to put out a book?

Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) talked to NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press this weekend and the inevitable questions about James Comey and the Russia investigation came up. Collins hasn’t exactly been a huge defender of the President (to put it mildly) but she’s a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence which is looking into the Russia, Russia, Russia story, so she has a bit of experience here. To be charitable, her helpful advice for Comey wasn’t particularly flattering. Let’s start with the video in question and then a couple of excerpts from NBC News. “I cannot...

CNN’s Year-Long-Get-Trump Project Explodes in Two Sound Bites

RUSH: By the way, the Comey memos regarding Trump and Flynn, do you know what they really reveal? They reveal that Trump had a lot of reservations about Flynn’s judgment. It wasn’t just related to the phone call he had with the Russian ambassador who went to lunch all the time, Sergey Kislyak. According to Comey’s memos, Trump’s reservations about Flynn were numerous, and they were related to his judgment. Trump was not confident of it. Now, in case you’re asking, no, there were no Comey memos ever of any of his meetings or time spent with President Obama....

Former first lady Barbara Bush guarded by Secret Service after death, report says

Even after the passing of former first lady Barbara Bush, agents with the Secret Service reportedly remained by her side. As Bush’s casket lay in St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Texas, she was flanked by agents who were among the members of her personal detail, local outlet KTRK reported. This, as thousands of people paid their respects Friday to the wife of former President George H.W. Bush during a public viewing. A funeral was held for her on Saturday. U.S. Secret Service agents reportedly seen flanking Bush’s casket on Friday.  (AP) Secret Service agents were going to stay with...

As Malnourishment Skyrockets in Venezuela, Unique Blockchain Technology Used to Feed Starving Kids

All too often, the blowhards within the political establishment jump at any chance they get to smear blockchain technology and cryptocurrency—writing it off as a tool of criminals and black markets. However, nothing could be further from the truth. As the example from Venezuela below proves, blockchain technology is enabling a level of philanthropy unlike the world has ever seen. Earlier this year, the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF said it was seeing clear signs of a growing malnutrition crisis in Venezuela, but it lacked data to give precise information and to tackle the problem effectively. “While precise figures are...

Left Makes 2nd Amendment Fight Personal with Home Vandalism of…

The American right to bear arms is as important, if not more important, than my freedom to say whatever I wish in the press. The reason for such a bold statement is simple, really:  The Second Amendment is our personal insurance policy against the tyranny that would squash our other rights.  By allowing an entire nation the ability to defend themselves against an empirical force, there is true sovereignty and autonomy.  Without those characteristics, freedom simply cannot exist. This puts the Second Amendment on a righteous and rightful pedestal above the rest, being only needed when it’s being removed. Trending: Donald...

DC abandons effort to get public to report food stamp fraud; taxpayers lose either way

Thomas Phippen, DCNF The District of Columbia’s health department has abandoned a taxpayer-funded advertising effort urging people to report food stamps fraud. The posters, which the district’s Department of Human Services put up in metro stations around D.C., advertised to passersby if they “see fraud” relating to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly known as food stamps or the cash welfare program Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), they should “report fraud.” DC officials picked one heck of a time to advertise SNAP fraud in Capitol South metro, which many House staffers use each day #farmbill pic.twitter.com/reElXT8AZj — Helena Bottemiller Evich (@hbottemiller) April 16, 2018 Food stamps are federally funded benefits for food assistance, but state governments manage the program and are responsible for investigating and removing users who get benefits improperly or who use the benefits fraudulently. Food stamp fraud can include individuals trafficking the benefit cards for cash or drugs, purchasing ineligible items with the allotment, or store managers purchasing inventory with SNAP cards. “The advertisements were intended to raise awareness of the program and help ensure that these crucial resources go directly to meeting the nutritional needs of District households,” the D.C. government said, adding funds for the ad campaign came from the Department of Agriculture, which oversees the program. The funding was given to the district for the “explicit purpose of educating residents...

WashPost Promotes ‘More Radical’ Gun-Controllers Harassing NRA Executive at Home

In 2010, some Obamacare opponents conducted scattered protests at politicians’ homes. They backed away from the tactic when Tea Party groups and others declared that home protests should be out of bounds. Don’t expect leftist protesters to receive any similar admonishments — especially if they continue to receive borderline-sympathetic coverage like protesting gun-control promoters, and even a person arrested for vandalism, received at the Washington Post on Friday. The Post’s Rachel Weiner opened her story using a classic “victim says” tactic to create uncertainty about actions concerning which there is no meaningful doubt: From all appearances, all we have...

Cook Publishes List of 2018 GOP Risk Factors For Retaining House Majority

What role will they play in November’s midterms? Democrats and their media allies are pinning their 2018 midterm hopes on a perhaps mythical blue wave.  What strikes me about this tactic is that it’s pretty much the same script they wrote for Hillary’s doomed 2016 presidential bid.  Pumping up the “blue wave” volume is intended to suppress Republican voter turnout. It’s not at all clear that it will have the desired affect.  Indeed, it might well have the opposite effect and motivate the GOP and pro-Trump base to get to the polls to counteract the predicted “wave.” As long-time...

McCabe says he’ll sue Trump for defamation

Andrew McCabe reportedly is planning to sue for wrongful termination and defamation. The defendant in his wrongful termination suit would have to be the government, I think. The defendant is his defamation suit apparently would be President Trump. McCabe’s lawyer says Trump has engaged in “continuing slander” against the former FBI man. I don’t know what specific “slanders” McCabe’s lawyer is referring to, but a defamation suit against Trump would likely be frivolous. Because McCabe is a public figure, he would have to prove “actual malice” by the president. This means he would have to show that Trump knew his statements are false or acted with reckless disregard for whether his statements are true or false. Trump sometimes appears not to care much about whether what he says is true, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with McCabe. I haven’t reviewed everything Trump has tweeted or said about McCabe, but the statements I have seen — e.g., that McCabe lied and leaked — are supported by the findings of the Justice Department’s Inspector General and were prompted by the IG’s report or word of it. Even if the IG’s findings turn out to be erroneous, Trump’s reliance on them would negate any suggestion of actual malice. Depending on the statements by Trump that form the basis of a future lawsuit, Trump might also be able to invoke...

UC Santa Barbara students surprised to learn Obama also sent troops to the border

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips posted a video today in which he asked students on the UC Santa Barbara campus what they thought of President Trump sending National Guard troops to the southern border. As you would expect, the mostly left-leaning students were against it. Some suggested it was a waste of time, with one student pointing to airplanes as an easy way to overcome border guards. Of course, most illegal immigrants coming across the southern border are walking across. Buying a plane ticket would be expensive and would also create a paper trail showing that someone had entered. Walking across...

Former first lady Barbara Bush laid to rest in Houston

Former first Lady Barbara Bush was remembered as the “first lady of the greatest generation” and “greatest role model” during a funeral service Saturday in Houston. Former President George H.W.

Jeb Bush, and other Bush relatives to remember his wife of 73 years. Barbara Bush died at their home in Houston on Tuesday at age 92. Jeb Bush, who delivered one of the eulogies, said it was a blessing to have a teacher like his mother....

The Bill of Rights is Missing an Amendment

One of greater problems that plague our federal government is that of cross-delegation. What do I mean by this? I describe this phenomenon as such, owing to the fact that three branches of government are no longer “separate but equal.” As we see by the take-over of government by the federal judiciary, they are clearly the most powerful of the three. The other two branches, the legislative and executive, take to bended knee before them, and as blind mutes, comply with any and every decree. This was clearly not intended by the founders. However, this cross-delegation can more accurately...

Donald Dishes on DNC Lawsuit, Promises “Aggressive” Discovery Phase

Editorial credit: JStone / Shutterstock.com Whether he likes it or not, it seems that the writing is on the wall for the left’s attempts to delegitimize the President via Robert Mueller. Their hope was that Mueller would be able to uncover something, anything, that could tie Donald Trump to Vladimir Putin sufficiently enough to draw doubt about the official results of the previous election.  Instead, what the Mueller team has done, (when they’re not busy bashing Trump and sleeping with one another), is file a handful of process crime charges to lesser Trump associates hoping that the dangling worm of...

Jenna Jameson returns to Twitter with a ‘precious’ reason for break. Watch her handle the haters.

Outspoken conservative Jenna Jameson, a former adult film star who turned her life around through religion, briefly inspired fear among her fans this week when she seemingly disappeared from Twitter. Her fans thought the worst, especially given that she usually expends a fair amount of time rightly cracking Democrats on social media over the head for their never-ending ignorance. But Jameson’s fans had no reason to worry. In a tweet Friday, she explained the reason she briefly disappeared just happened to involve this extremely adorable little lady: The “little turkey burger” seen above is Jameson’s third child, Batel Lu Bitton, who was born almost exactly 12 months ago. And according to Jameson’s tweet, Batel just learned to walk! Reason I took a small break from Twitter. I have a new walker! pic.twitter.com/bGLb2xcwSP — Jenna Jameson (@jennajameson) April 20, 2018 Her fans were thrilled by the news, to say the least: LOVE.

Bryant’s Book Defends Protesting Athletes, Rips Racist Fans, President Trump

Set for release May 8, ESPN The Magazine writer Howard Bryant’s book, “The Heritage: Black Athletes, a Divided America, and the Politics of Patriotism,” is a defense of the African-American athletes’ protest movement and an incendiary attack on white racist sports fans. Online excerpts reveal Bryant’s defense of Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James and other protesting athletes, the portrayal of white fans and President Donald Trump as racists and sports teams as authoritarians who offend African-Americans by honoring police and military members in patriotic displays. Today’s protesters, Bryant writes, are the heirs to African-American social justice warriors of the past,...
