Desperate to placate their increasingly rabid far left-wing base, ethically-flexible Senate Democrats are planning to launch a filibuster against a Supreme Court nominee for the first time in a half-century and only the second time in American history.
In 2012, Blue Line News Week reproduced an article describing the sad state of backlogs in Canadian Police Information Centre(CPIC). Sun Media reported: “A spokesman for the national police agency told QMI Agency there were 430,000 criminal records waiting to be filed into the Canadian Police Information Centre database, with more piling in every day. The backlog accounts for about 10% of the RCMP’s complete criminal record file of 4.3 million records.”
As someone who goes back decades with Accuracy in Media, I remember the days when Ted Koppel, then with ABC News and host of “Nightline,” would cover serious matters and treat his conservative critics with respect. So Koppel’s attack on Sean Hannity of Fox News was a shocker. Something has happened to journalism, and the problem is not with Hannity, it’s with Koppel.
Josh Earnest, who served as White House Press Secretary for the last 2 1/2 years of Barack Obama’s presidency, has joined NBC News and MSNBC as a political analyst, according to an announcement from the networks on Monday.
You legislators and the “news” media say “how dare Nunes inform Trump!”. The answer to that comment is: “Trump is the person whom WE The People put in as the chief executive of this nation and whose job it is to help us to flush that filthy toilet called Washington DC which Trump politely calls the “swamp”.
The good news, if you want to look at it that way, is that the left has suddenly decided there are limits on the executive authority of the president. Not the silly ones in the constitution, mind you. They have no use for those and never did, which is why they had no problem with any abuse of power by the lightbringer Obama.
It’s easy to deride the aberrant behavior of the leftists we’ve been unhappily witness to, both over the course of the presidential campaign and particularly since Donald J. Trump ascended to the presidency on November 8th, 2016. After all, they’ve never recovered from the Bush v Gore race of 2000!
There’s more than one messy little detail that the New York Post doesn’t mention about the loud Ivanka Trump complaints from NIMBY neighbour Marietta Robinson and elitist Fox News talking head Chris Wallace.
Astute Canada Free Press readers report that Robinson is a registered Democrat; was appointed by Barack Obama to a consumer protection agency; is filthy rich; was awarded big money from a 2.2. billion buck lawsuit related to a contraceptive device and did some UN work.
The conservative House Freedom Caucus opposed the proposed “American Health Care Act” —a.k.a. RINOcare — because it was a lousy bill. It was a lousy bill because Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has a political tin-ear. Unfortunately, some pundits are going for the easier explanation that RINOcare failed because the House Freedom Caucus is ideologically rigid.
Maybe all the blowback to Friday’s surrender press conference caused him to rethink whether Republicans can really just “move on to the rest of their agenda” and leave ObamaCare in place. Or maybe the whole thing was a rope-a-dope to put pressure on the dopes who saved ObamaCare in the first place.
Sometimes, we wish you could see more of what goes on behind the scenes of Herman Cain HQ. We have a lot of laughs, a lot of interesting discussions, and a fair amount of non-PC fun. You’d enjoy it. Then, there are other times when we’re glad you’re not around. That’s usually when we’re bickering about legislation, and the concept of constitutionalism vs. “conservatism.”
TORONTO—Quebec’s subsidized daycare program has produced skyrocketing costs along with worrying child development outcomes without eliminating wait times, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.
International news services now report that Japan’s Toshiba Corporation (9502.T) is preparing to make a chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for its Westinghouse Electric subsidiary as soon as this Monday, March 27. For most of our readers this news evokes little surprise. This is merely another chapter of a slow moving financial and accounting train wreck involving nuclear design and construction firm Westinghouse and its troubled Japanese parent, Toshiba. But like an old, leaky garbage scow there is much to clean up in its wake.
You can call me an unprincipled RINO if you want. Let’s see if you say the same thing about Republican Congressman Ted Poe of Texas. He’s one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus. He helped found it because he believed Republicans should push for conservative legislation wherever possible. I believe that too, for what it’s worth.
The Trump administration is moving forward with cutting off federal law enforcement grants to local governments that shield illegal aliens, especially violent felons, from federal immigration authorities, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said yesterday.
President Trump’s budgetary assault on the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is long overdue. He is forcing a rethinking that will benefit America and the world.
It’s not the one you’re hearing about. All the media attention is on the notion that Russians “hacked the election” or something. Or they’re telling us again that there’s “no evidence” Trump Tower was wiretapped, even though the investigation isn’t over yet and we can’t possibly know that.
It appears that Obamacare is here to stay. Those doctors who grew up with the conditioning notion of utopian “social justice” love it. Those doctors who hate the government intrusion and regulation into their medical practice hate it. The American public is split as well along those lines.
Democrats’ policy ideas are terrible. They damage this country. They invariably expand the scope of the federal government and war against the productive sector. They make problems like poverty, crime and moral depravity worse. They promote corruption. They accrue debt.
After seven years of telling us they would repeal and replace ObamaCare at the first opportunity, the Republican House worked on it all of 63 days before apparently deciding it could not do so - despite a Republican majority in the Senate (however small) and a Republican president prepared to sign the bill.
Leo Durocher, the fiery win-at-all-costs baseball player, and later manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, once remarked, “I never question the integrity of umpires. Their eyesight? Yes!” Durocher would have questioned their eyesight more if he had known they were suffering from aniseikonia. So, should anyone care about this condition? And why do so many suffer this visual problem when it can be corrected?
The simpletons who are gloating that the rejection of the Health Care Repeal and Replace legislation shows that Trump is no longer a master at the Art of the Deal seem to overlook one simple fact. Every deal with a chance of closing has to have two parties with open minds who WANT a deal. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton got things done because they had negotiating partners.
After more than six blood-soaked years, some half a million dead (mostly civilians), and millions of displaced people and refugees, there are signs that the military stage in the Syrian civil war is approaching an end. The war, which began as a civilian uprising, evolved into a war among jihadist organizations and then into a war among entities vying for regional dominance, bolstered by respective regional and international powers.
On Saturday, Ziyed Ben Belgacem pays a visit to Orly Airport in Paris. He grabs a female soldier from behind and grapples for her rifle while holding a pellet gun to her head. He warns the other soldiers to drop their rifles and raise their hands.
My first two open letters, HERE & HERE, like the legitimate concerns of tens of thousands of Canadians, have fallen on deaf ears and you have succeeded in getting the Camel’s nose of Islamophobia under the tent of Free Speech to start spitting and belching its offensive cud.
