CNN’s Drew Griffin ambushes JROTC hero for calling out ‘scripted’ town hall, calls him a liar

CNN hit a new low as one of its reporters called out one of the Florida school shooting survivors as a liar. CNN’s Drew Griffin accused Colton Haab, the young JROTC member who helped shield his classmates from a mass shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, of lying about his encounter with the network. This is just a lie. Repeated over and over again. And yet a lie. Facts matter. https://t.co/nzXQQ9S9u6 — Drew Griffin (@DrewGriffinCNN) February 23, 2018 “This is just a lie. Repeated over and over again. And yet a lie. Facts matter,” Griffin tweeted...

MSNBC Freaks: ‘Lying’ Trump’s ‘Strange’ Speech Was Like Dictators from Cuba, Venezuela

MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle on Friday suffered a total meltdown after Donald Trump’s CPAC speech, foaming that the “strange,” “lie”-filled address was reminiscent of brutal dictators such as Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ruhle labeled certain comments “absurd across the board.”  Velshi fumed, “There were a lot of lies in the speech… It was a remarkable speech. It was lie to new topic to another lie. It was very strange speech.” How often were MSNBC hosts concerned about the big lies told by Barack Obama during his two terms? Immediately after the “truly sprawling, meandering” speech ended,...

Trump mulls pulling ICE out of California

The battle between Washington and Sacramento over sanctuary city and sanctuary state policies doesn’t seem to be fading away to the back page. During recent remarks made this week from the White House, President Trump weighed in once again on the lack of cooperation that ICE and the Border Patrol are getting from state officials in California in terms of locating and apprehending criminal illegal aliens. In the past, Trump has sent out Jeff Sessions to threaten their JAG grants and other federal, law enforcement funding. This week he tossed out a completely different idea. Rather than trying to...

If Nikolas Cruz Was Bullied, Who Bullied Him?

RUSH:  No, I wanted to make a point.  The media early on was portraying Nikolas Cruz as a victim of bullying.  He was portrayed as being bullied — that he was mocked, that he was laughed at — and then the media dropped that.  That characterization of the shooter being bullied and mocked, laughed at, humiliated? That didn’t last in the Drive-By Media very long, because the media realized, “That’s not gonna help us here, ’cause somebody had to be doing the bullying. Somebody had to be doing the laughing.  Somebody had to be making fun of the guy.”...

Her arrival at the airport — along with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and others, was broadcast live on South Korean television. She said...

Why Is DC Withholding Salary Information for 255,000 Employees That You Pay For?

Why are the salaries of over a quarter of a million federal employees kept from the public? In an op-ed by Adam Andrzejewski, the CEO & founder of OpenTheBooks.com, a non-profit, nonpartisan government financial watchdog group, he points out that the salary information for 255,000 employees is being withheld from the American people. This year, our auditors filed our standard Freedom of Information Act request for the same information in Fiscal Year 2017 – and we got a big surprise. For the first time, the government’s response involved massive and targeted deletions of salary data. A total of 254,839 federal salaries...

Liberal Media Lies Up a Storm As Parkland Kids Advocate for Ending Second Amendment

We still don’t know who is paying the tens of thousands of dollars in expenses for the Parkland teens that are traveling about the south eastern U.S. and appearing all over American and international TV advocating for an end to our Second Amendment rights, but we do know who is carrying these kids’ water. It’s the left-wing, old media establishment, especially CNN. Hotair’s mysterious Allahpundit had just about the right feeling for CNN’s daylong advocacy for the Parkland Kids’ anti-gun message. “Gonna switch from CNN to MSNBC for cable news in light of the last few days. If you’re...

Sheriff reveals bombshell at press conference: Armed officer at Stoneman Douglas ‘never went in’ during shooting

In the aftermath of the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida that tragically claimed the lives of at least 17 people, the American people have been asking themselves “what went wrong?” The U.S. media have been focusing almost entirely on the weapons possessed by Nikolas Cruz, the perpetrator who confessed to authorities about carrying out the atrocity. It has spent countless hours debating what firearms should be restricted from law-abiding Americans in order to hypothetically prevent such mass shootings from occurring again. At a CNN townhall dedicated to airing out grievances about mass...

Kaboom! Shapiro Dismantles Liberal Media as ‘Vile Human Beings’ for Smearing Conservatives

On Thursday at CPAC, the NRA’s Dana Loesch, Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.), and Vice President Mike Pence drew applause and standing ovations during their respective speeches, but conservative podcast host and Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro lit up the Potomac Ballroom with his remarks attacking political correctness on college campuses, in Hollywood, and the liberal media. Shapiro saved his strongest criticism for the liberal media as he declared that they’re not only “lying” about conservatives, but these “vile human beings” “are intentionally dividing the country in order to promulgate a gun-control agenda” and smear anyone standing in their way....

Student Colton Haab stands by claim CNN rewrote his planned questions and told him to “stick to the script”

Names the CNN producer allegedly involved. Colton Haab, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was planning to appear at the CNN event last night at which students and community members would question politicians and NRA representative Dana Loesch. The event turned into a fiasco in which Loesch was called a murderer, threatened and jeered by a crowd of thousands. It was a low point, even for CNN, which set up the event for just such a scenario. But Colton didn’t go to the event after, he said, CNN squelched his proposed statement and questions directed towards school...

George Washington: Father of our country, symbol of its presidency

In the preface to his book The Presidency of George Washington, the late Forrest McDonald wrote: [M]y account of Washington’s presidency may leave the reader mystified by the man’s virtual deification in his own times. The solution to the mystery is here, however, if the reader will approach the story in the proper spirit. To be an American in the last decade of the eighteenth century was to be present at the crucial myth-making time in the infancy of the Republic; it was comparable to being a Roman in the age of Romulus and Remus, or a Greek in the age of the Olympians. Thucydides and Herodotus, it is said, invented history by distinguishing what could be proved to have happened from that which could not be proved. The former we call history; the latter we call myth. Here we are dealing with a myth that happens also to have been true, for George Washington, in his own lifetime, was self-consciously both more than a mere man and less than a man: his people craved a myth and a symbol, and he devoted his life to fulfilling that need. Later, McDonald added: Washington. . .was a marvelous combination of sophistication and naivete, and thus it was just as well that he chose to stand above the partisanship of his subordinates [Hamilton and Jefferson]. On the one hand, he handled...

#MeToo hits Ford Motor Company, but will anyone pay attention?

With so much of the focus on Hollywood and Washington when it comes to the Me Too Moment, is there room in the news cycle or in the attention span of the public for similar problems in less flashy work locations? That question is being put to the test as the fallout continues from numerous allegations arising at Ford’s plants in Chicago and elsewhere. Elected officials in the Windy City held another series of hearings this week and got an earful from women who worked for the auto industry giant over a period of decades and described horrible conditions...

CNN’s So-Called Town Hall Facilitated Hate

RUSH: Well, well, well. I certainly hope everybody watching, if you are watching, this disgrace CNN put on last night, trying to call that a town hall. I hope if you watched that, you see what I’m talking about. I hope you saw, I hope you noted how the last thing that was about last night was the safety of children. It had nothing to do with what was going on last night. Anyway, greetings, folks. As always, great to have you with us, and thank you for joining us. Telephone number, if you want to be on the...

Ex-Playboy model’s notes on alleged Trump affair written a decade later

EXCLUSIVE: The centerpiece of a New Yorker story on Karen McDougal, who says she had an affair with Donald Trump, is scribbled notes kept by the former Playboy playmate. These notes, obtained by journalist Ronan Farrow, are presented as her personal reflections on the relationship –“later memorialized in an eight-page, handwritten document provided to the New Yorker.” Readers could easily get the impression, as many journalists have, that McDougal wrote these notes during what she describes as a consensual relationship that began in 2006. But that is not the case. A telltale marking on the entries, reproduced by the magazine, shows...

The Stat Liberals Ignore – Comparing Homicide Rates to Gun Ownership

If you keep an eye on the media these days, you may notice that whenever they talk about guns, they talk about “gun homicide” as well. As if these two figures are inextricably linked and tell the whole story of the gun debate. It’s simply not so. An interesting graph that appeared on Facebook reminded me of the lies the anti-gunners tell using cherry-picked crime stats. Trending: The Suspicions Over the Anti-Gun Parkland Kids Grows Here’s the graph: Notice that it measures the international homicide rate as well as the per capita gun ownership rate. Right off the bat, I...

Student Survivor Ditches Town Hall After CNN Hands Him SCRIPT

Credit attribution:f11photo / Shutterstock.com It’s no surprise to anyone that the mainstream media has some awfully dirty tricks up their sleeves, but CNN’s treatment of school shooting survivors as props requires addressing. It is nearly impossible for any of us to imagine the grief and sorrow of those involved in a tragedy such as the Parkland, Florida school shooting of a week ago.  Seventeen lives were lost on that fateful day, and those seventeen lives touched countless people within the tight knight community at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.  For every one of those bodies laid to rest, there...

Rubio stands his ground under enormous pressure and disrespect at CNN hostile townhall

Marco Rubio was one of a handful of pro-Second Amendment advocates at a heavily stacked CNN town hall promoting gun control. The Republican senator faced a highly emotional and hostile crowd to make his case in the wake of the horrific school massacre in Parkland, Florida. A father who lost his daughter in the shooting called Rubio’s public response to the tragedy “pathetically weak,” and his deep frustration with the senator was seemingly shared by the cheering crowd. The grieving father looked Rubio in the eyes and challenged him to admit that “guns were the factor in the hunting...

NYT Media Reporter Smears Rush Limbaugh as Conspiracist for Calling Student Protests Political

New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum smeared conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh as a Florida shooting conspiracist in “Dubious Theories on Shooting In Florida Find an Audience,” in Wednesday’s Business Day. The teenagers of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who a week ago lost 17 of their classmates and school staff members in a mass shooting, have emerged as passionate advocates for reform, speaking openly of their anger in the hope of forcing a reckoning on guns. Grynbaum opportunistically lumped Rush and former congressman Jack Kingston in with conspiracists making nutty claims about “false flags”...

Pennsylvania legislators seek SCOTUS Emergency Stay of new congressional district map

PA Supreme Court imposed map even more favorable to Democrats than Democrats had requested. On February 19, 2018, the majority Democrat members of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court imposed a new congressional district map that was very Democrat friendly, likely swinging 4-5 seats to Democrats. It could be the difference between Democrats taking control of the U.S. House or not in the 2018 midterms. The map became so Democrat-friendly after a series of decisions as to placement of boundaries that helped Democrats. Nate Cohn at The NY Times described it this way: Few people expected that the Pennsylvania congressional map,...

Once upon a time in America, Part Two

The Washington Post takes up the same theme raised by Charles Lane on Fox News — President Trump’s tendency to compare himself favorably to Barack Obama. Post reporters Philip Rucker and Ashley Parker cite the same statement Lane did — Trump’s claim that “I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts.” Like Lane, Rucker and Parker choose their words carefully when they contend that Trump is being unpresidential in this regard. “With some exceptions,” they write, “presidents are generally deferential to their predecessors and loathe to attack them or even to draw unkind comparisons.” Who might some of the “exceptions” be? Rucker and Parker don’t tell us. The most obvious and relevant exception is Barack Obama. And since, unlike Lane, Rucker and Parker had a lengthy article in which to mention Obama’s “attacks” and “unkind comparisons” with George W. Bush, we must conclude that, in failing to mention them, they are guilty of partisan hackery on behalf of their guy, Obama. The same conclusion follows from this passage: The facts suggest the opposite [of Trump’s claim that he has been tougher on Russia than Obama], as Trump has repeatedly doubted the conclusions of his own U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia interfered in the election and has sought to undermine the FBI’s investigation of the matter. No intelligent comparison of the “toughness” of Trump...

Team Kasich appears to declare war on Trump by trying to take over Ohio GOP

John Kasich has lost considerable power since his failed 2016 presidential run. In addition to having his dream of occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. elude him, he also lost his control of the Ohio Republican Party. Now, it appears that Kasich is trying to regain his vice-like grip on the Ohio Republican Party. This power move by Team Kasich is pitting them squarely against grassroots activists and President Trump’s allies in the battleground state. Kasich’s loss of control over the state party is an important part of the puzzle that is his story. Controlling the party allowed him to exert...

Homeless bring diseases to cities. Time to remove them from streets

For many years I have been telling listeners that the city of San Francisco is filthier than third-world cities I have visited. That the roads, because of corruption and the stealing of highway funds, are more broken than those of third-world countries. Well finally, the local NBC Bay Area news station was shamed. I shamed them into taking one of their sound trucks out and doing something other than attacking Trump, and guess what they found out? Their investigation found out that this city, this once beautiful city has now descended because of liberalism. They don’t say that, of...

Your Host Smeared on the Parkland Students

RUSH: Sadly, my friends, I need to ask your indulgence. I need to start here with some housekeeping stuff. Your host is being smeared all over the United States over something I didn’t even know had happened, and yet I am supposedly the leader of the group of people saying it. I didn’t even know that this was happening or had been said until I started doing show prep today. And then I get the audio sound bite roster, and I find out I am the ringleader of this. Here’s the deal. Apparently there is a member of the...
