NBC Attacks Trump for ‘Praising Confederate General,’ Later Quietly Admits To Lying

On Friday NBC News “reported” the fake news that President Donald Trump praised a Confederate General during his rally in Ohio. Trump didn’t do that, of course, but it took the network more than two days to correct its fake news story. Here is how NBC initially reported Trump’s words during his Ohio rally in a Friday tweet: “WATCH: President Trump says “Robert E. Lee was a great general” during Ohio rally, calling the Confederate leader “incredible.” take our poll – story continues below Completing this poll grants you access to The Constitution updates free of charge.

Illegal Immigration by families hits all-time record in September

Will Racke, DCNF Illegal immigration by parents traveling with children reportedly hit an all-time high in September as thousands of families continued to pour across the southwest border, capping a record-setting year for family migration. A total of 16,658 people traveling in family units were arrested by the Border Patrol at the southwest border in September, according to unpublished Customs and Border Protection (CBP) figures obtained by The Washington Post. That was the highest single-month total on record and an 80 percent increase over July’s total. The September figures follow a record-setting August, which saw 12,774 people in family units arrested at the border, the highest ever total for that month. For all of fiscal year 2018, more than 107,000 people in family units members were arrested, shattering the previous high of 77,857 set in 2016. The summer deluge of family migration has come in the three months since President Donald Trump ended family separations at the southwest border. Over that period, large groups of families, mostly from Central America, have crossed the border or arrived at ports of entry to petition for asylum. The Trump administration has attributed the surge to loopholes in immigration law that prevent the government from holding adults and their children in detention together while their cases are heard in immigration court. Administration officials say the restrictions encourage parents to bring children across the border because they know they...

President Trump signs “eco-friendly” Save our Seas Act into law

Meanwhile, a cleanup crew heading to Great Pacific Garbage Patch President Donald Trump has signed into law an eco-friendly bill that may have been the most bipartisan measure created on Capitol Hill since 2016. The Ketchikan Daily News reports the Save our Seas Act, which Trump signed Thursday, reauthorizes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program through 2022. The program works to reduce debris through research, prevention and reduction. The Save our Seas legislation keeps the program going by continuing to authorize $10 million per year for the next five years. The bill also encourages the executive...

Democratic Mobs, Then and Now

News item: Two GOP candidates assaulted in Minnesota. News item: Antifa mob overruns Portland, and Democratic mayor stands aside. (And to think, I had dinner once with Ted Wheeler a few years ago, before he was elected mayor of Portland, and thought he was a sensible human being. Another case of misleading first impressions I guess.) News item: Ricin sent to Sen. Susan Collins. News item: Democrat assaults, critically injures Republican Senator in capitol. Okay, so this last item is from 1856—the famous caning of Republican Senator Charles Sumner by southern Democrat Preston Brooks. But some things never change. And as Lincoln once said, “If we know where we are, and whither we are tending, we can better judge what to do, and how to do it.” And with the Democratic Party openly embracing mob tactics, we can make out a reversion to a very old pattern. By coincidence, this week in my Berkeley class on political leadership I went through Lincoln’s first significant public speech, his “Lyceum Address” of 1838, when we was just 28 years old. (Yes, I use this class to sneak in history students today don’t know, and sure enough most students know next to nothing about Lincoln or the Civil War.) The formal theme of the speech is “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions,” but Lincoln spends a large portion of the speech decrying the...

Pat Robertson: C’mon, we’re not going to blow up a key Middle East alliance over one little murder

Lefties are marveling that a brand-name Christian conservative would be encouraging followers to look the other way at an assassination, but they’re forgetting Jesus’s parting words at the end of the Sermon on the Mount: “If you want to make an omelette, you’ve got to break a few eggs.” Wait, am I misremembering? My youthful memories of the gospels are not the best. I think perhaps the savior’s actual parting words were “Velvet glove, iron fist.” I mean, that at least sounds like Jesus. Lotta mixed feelings about the evangelical turn towards hard-nosed realpolitik under Trump. On the one...

Two GOP Candidates Assaulted in Minnesota

THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON: The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would “bring [Republicans] to the guillotine” on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been...

Sinking Sleaze-Bob Menendez

Sinking Sleaze-Bob Menendezby Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateCopyright 2018 Sinking SleazeBob Menendez The metaphors don’t get any better (or worse) than this: A van carrying Hillary Clinton, fresh from throwing her #MeToo sisters under the bus this weekend, crashed into a parking garage pillar on the way to a New Jersey campaign fundraiser Tuesday for beleaguered Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. At her side was Huma Abedin, ex-wife of convicted serial sexter and underage girl stalker, ex-Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner. LIVE LOOK at @HillaryClinton trying to save @SenatorMenendez. (Spoiler alert: she crashes.) #NJSen pic.twitter.com/7poUpIYxl6 — The Senate Majority (@NRSC) October 16, 2018 Thankfully, no one was hurt in the accident. But politically, damaged goods plus damaged goods equals an epic car wreck. Tone-deaf Hillary had just earned recriminations from the Left’s Resistance wing for defending her horndog hubby on “CBS Sunday,” where she flatly denied that the 49-year-old Commander-in-Chief’s Oval Office sexcapades with 22-year-old intern Monica Lewinsky were an “abuse of power” because, well, “she was an adult.” This is the same fauxminist champion who sidled up to disgraced Hollyweirdo Harvey Weinstein despite warnings from entertainment industry insiders about his alleged sexual predation of young starlets that reportedly dated back to 2008. Question: Who could have possibly thought it a good idea for Hillary and Huma to front a women-themed party for Sleaze-Bob Menendez? Answer: Only a conglomerate of liberal hacks and...

With Blue Wave in Doubt, AP Distorts What Trump Said About the Midterms

RUSH: Another headline. You probably have seen this. Associated Press: “Trump Tells the AP he Will Not Accept Blame if the Republicans Lose the House.” The truth of the matter here is there are more stories today, two or three more about the dissipating blue wave, including none other than the doyenne of Democrat National Committee cheating and election rigging, Donna Brazile, who, strangely enough, showed up on Fox today. She showed up with Bill Hemmer. Donna Brazile did not go to CNN. Did they get rid of her because they found out she was sending answers to Hillary?...

Renewed push for Russia records in advance of Papadopoulos testimony

Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos is scheduled to give a closed-door, transcribed interview next week before House investigators, as Fox News has learned of a renewed push to declassify some Russia records. Congressional sources say GOP lawmakers want President Trump to declassify fewer than a dozen pages of documents which relate to Papadopoulos. The sources say they believe the records include exculpatory evidence and appear to “undercut” the collusion narrative. A committee aide said Papadopoulos is coming voluntarily on Oct. 25, before the House oversight and judiciary committees as part of their joint investigation into Justice Department actions...

Hulu network mocked unmercifully for reminder to choose ‘culturally appropriate, respectful’ Halloween costumes

Hulu, the subscription TV service that served up “Handmaid’s Tale,” tried to promote itself with a “reminder” to wear “culturally appropriate and respectful” costumes this Halloween. The tweet came complete with a #Huluween hashtag. “If you’re dressing up for #Huluween this year, this is your reminder to wear a costume that is culturally appropriate and respectful to others. Let’s celebrate the holiday in a way that we can all enjoy,” the tweet read. Is this Handmaid’s Tale costume appropriate?

Women Outraged After Heitkamp Campaign Outs Them as Sexual Abuse Survivors

“I deeply regret this mistake and we are in the process of issuing a retraction” The campaign of Heidi Heitkamp, the incumbent Democratic Senator of North Dakota, came under fire this week for sharing the names of women who are sexual abuse survivors in an ad, without their permission. Some of the women named say they are not even abuse survivors. Heitkamp has since apologized. James Arkin writes at Politico: Heitkamp apologizes after ad mistakenly named women as sexual assault survivors North Dakota Democratic Sen.

Political Violence Comes to Minnesota

The good news first: no one has yet been stabbed, shot or guillotined. Although the idea has been raised: A Minnesota DFL staffer has been suspended from his job after suggesting in a social media post that Republicans face beheading after the Nov. 6 election. In response to a Facebook post that listed Nov. 6 as the day to “take back your country,” DFL deputy communications director William Davis wrote “11.7-bring them to the guillotines.” The suspension is for one week. In an earlier statement, DFL executive director Corey Day said the comment was an inside joke among former co-workers. Ha ha. Those Democrats are hilarious. Next, the inevitable: Republicans seized on the comment…. Any time you see “Republicans seized,” you know you are reading an article by a Democratic Party reporter. Republicans are right to be concerned. Within the last week, two Republican candidates for the legislature have been assaulted for political reasons. The first was Representative Sarah Anderson: Rep. Sarah Anderson was heading out for a day of campaigning Sunday when she saw a man damaging campaign signs near her Plymouth home. She saw him kicking at her campaign sign — then others. Parking her car, Anderson confronted the man. That may have been a mistake. Anderson tried unsuccessfully to videotape the encounter as the man backed her into the street, swearing. “And he charged at me...

Oregon governor’s race up for grabs?

Could the nation’s only openly bisexual governor be in trouble on election day? Serving as Oregon’s Lt. Governor, Kate Brown took over when her predecessor, John Kitzhaber, was forced to resign in 2015 because of the increasing number of law enforcement officials who wanted to chat with him. She was seen as a natural for the position and given Oregon’s deep blue status, her reelection was considered to be a given. So how is it that the Cook Political Report just moved her race into toss-up territory? (The Hill) Nonpartisan election handicapper Cook Political Report shifted their prediction for...

How a hedge fund king’s weird ideas about retail destroyed Sears

NEW YORK POST: It’s been a long, strange trip to bankruptcy court for Sears — and you can thank a brilliant, reclusive and woefully misguided hedge-fund manager for the ride. The 125-year-old retailer — for decades one of the nation’s iconic corporations, selling everything from TVs to dresses to riding mowers — filed for bankruptcy early Monday, as shoppers fled its increasingly shoddy stores in favor of younger rivals like Walmart and Amazon. More stunning, however, is the odd saga that Sears has endured for more than a dozen years now. In 2005, a financial prodigy named Eddie Lampert...

The 10-Year Political Trend Doesn’t Point to a Blue Wave

RUSH: We’ve been hearing for the past, how many months, that there’s going to be a blue wave. There’s no question about it. There has been no question about it. The Democrat Party is poised to retake everything they can in this next election. Why? Well, the media tells us the American people are fed up. After two years of Donald Trump, they realize the mistake they’ve made, they wish they could do it over, maybe take back their vote for Trump, and this is gonna be the first chance they’ve had to actually do that, and so the...

From Hillary to Elizabeth, Democratic distractions hurting the party in midterms

With three weeks to go in what should be a strong midterm election for them, here’s what the Democrats don’t need: Hillary Clinton justifying her husband’s sexual affair with a White House intern because she was over 21. Elizabeth Warren doing a DNA test that shows she has a minuscule fraction of Native American ancestry and getting denounced by the Cherokee Nation. Heidi Heitkamp having to apologize for putting out a letter naming sexual assault victims without their permission. These are, to put it mildly, all self-inflicted wounds. The plain fact is that there’s only so much media oxygen...

Woke Progressives are a Tiny Minority 

Last week the Atlantic.com, of all places, posted an article dispelling the myth that there is a fast growing progressive movement on the rise in this country.  It’s called being “Woke.” For those unfamiliar, or otherwise have a life, being “woke” is like you figured it all out – that you, more than others, particularly those on the right, have your finger on the pulse of the nation. You’ve been awakened. In fact these “woke” Americans are the most clueless among us and willfully fall prey to every leftist claim and theory they stumble upon. Unfortunately, the same can be said...

Trump appears vindicated on San Juan corruption accusation as FBI raids municipal buildings, city council

Despite criticism leveled at him for pointing it out, President Trump turned out to be right about the corruption in Puerto Rico. Trump slammed Puerto Rican officials including Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz a few weeks ago for the slow recovery efforts on the island following last year’s Hurricane Maria, blaming rampant corruption for the failure to adequately respond to the storm’s destruction. (Image: screenshot) Cruz repeatedly blasted Trump for allegedly turning his back on the people of Puerto Rico, leveling the blame for lack of supplies and speedy response at the president’s feet. But on Tuesday morning, the FBI focused in on Cruz...

CNBC Poll: Forget About a Midterm Blue Wave

When you’ve lost NBC… A few months ago, Democrats had a commanding lead in a number of polls and talks of a Blue Wave had the GOP rattled. But a lot has happened these few months. A series of missteps, unforced errors, and flat out embarrassments and three weeks before the midterm elections, polls are skewing red. Christine Blasey Ford was the October surprise that backfired and then blew up in a blaze of glory, while simultaneously doing the impossible — uniting the furthest regions of the right with the so called “establishment” who was leading the charge in...

The European reaction to Khashoggi

The mainstream media has criticized President Trump’s reaction to reports that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the disappearance and probable death of Jamal Khashoggi. Trump has said he is waiting for more facts, clearly an appropriate position to take. He has also said that if the Saudis are responsible for killing Khashoggi the U.S. response will be “severe punishment.” From the media’s perspective, this statement seems unobjectionable. At the same time, however, the president has said he won’t scuttle a big arms deal with the Saudis over Khashoggi. This statement is the main source of media discontent. But according to the Washington Post, European nations seem, if anything, even less willing to see trade with Saudi Arabia affected by Khashoggi’s fate. Rick Noack reports: While Britain, France and Germany issued a joint statement over the weekend in which they called for a “credible investigation,” none of the three countries have gone beyond the remarks so far voiced by the White House. If anything, they’ve been even less vocal. While U.S. pressure on Trump has been bipartisan, in Europe, calls to punish Saudi Arabia have mostly come from opposition parties. Britain’s Labour Party pressed the Conservative government over the weekend to stop arms sales to the country “until they changed their ways,” said Labour foreign policy expert Emily Thornberry. While German observers have lashed out at Trump for refusing to...

Report: Google News’ search results aren’t rigged but they are biased

A group called AllSides put out a report Tuesday which concludes that Google News’ search results are biased toward the left end of the political spectrum. However, the report also states that this bias seems to reflect the general bias of sites which are popular on the web and doesn’t represent evidence that Google is intentionally skewing results. In other words, Google’s results are biased but they aren’t rigged. From USA Today: John Gable, CEO of AllSides and author of the study, said the bias is the result of “most news online and most news consumption online (being) from a...
