Just because something is in the news doesn’t make it news

President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell having a great lunch meeting and a kumbaya moment is not news to me. I’m glad they presented a united message, but legislative results are news. There were none yet.

What Hillary Clinton thinks or says about anything does not matter to me one iota. She is irrelevant to any conversation. And I wouldn’t waste time reading her book about blaming everybody and everything for her presidential loss. It’s never her fault.

Trump is disturbing the peace by refusing to pretend awful things are fine

Normal Americans with basic common sense understand things like this. They understand it’s not fine to run up $20 trillion in debt. They understand it’s not fine to make awful deals with evil regimes that allow them to build nuclear weapons. They understand it’s not fine to report “news” stories that are not true. They understand it’s not fine to destroy insurance markets and then use taxpayer money to bail out the insurers so you can pretend it’s not happening.

They also understand it’s not fine to run to the news media anonymously with information, which may not even be true, that you’re not supposed to be sharing. And they understand it’s not fine to run for political office promising to do something, only to not do it while pretending you tried when you really didn’t.

FBI: Oh, by the way, we just found 30 pages of information about the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting

What does the FBI know about the infamous tarmac meeting last year between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch? She was their boss at the time, after all. It sure looked like an attempt by the former president to influence the FBI’s investigation into his wife’s schlock, homebrew e-mail server - an investigation of which Lynch was the head as attorney general.

But the FBI has always claimed it had no documentation or information concerning the meeting, so when Freedom of Information Act requests were filed concerning the meeting, the answer was that there was no information to be provided.

Sanctimonious, dictator-loving jerk: How dare Trump change the sweet deal we gave Iran?

John Kerry is a disgusting, vile human being. I just thought I should mention that.

He sold out his fellow Vietnam veterans as the so-called Winter Soldier hearings, accusing them of horrible atrocities while claiming that he himself was some sort of war hero. Throughout his public life, Kerry has consistently embraced the worst anti-American tyrants on Earth, from the Sandinistas in Nicaragua to the Castros in Cuba to the terrorists in the Middle East and the mad mullahs in Iran. If you’re evil and tyrannical, and you hate America, John Kerry is ready to be your best friend.

Seth Meyers gives the finger to any Trump supporters who happen to be watching his show

Earlier, we talked about how Late-Night talk shows are archaic and unnecessary.  The hosts are dinosaurs, lumbering across the entertainment landscape, completely unaware that the asteroid which will eventually wipe them out hit back in the 90’s. Like the Clintons, these shows serve no purpose but continue to be a staple of American life - even though everyone has moved on.

They’ve always been around, the people in charge haven’t got any better ideas, so they keep hanging around.

Maxine Waters: The DNC should give back all that filthy money donated by Harvey Weinstein

The Democrats have a Harvey Weinstein problem.  Despite screaming about the “War on Women” for the last few years, it seems that some of the country’s most prominent liberals have been enabling the ex-exec’s behavior. ...Or, if they weren’t enabling it, they were certainly willing to look the other way.

We know for a fact that’s true in Hollywood, where several prominent stars have basically admitted as much, but it’s probably also true in Washington D.C.

Doctors are finding economic models to get around ObamaCare

I attended a conference last Friday in Orlando, where there were 250 doctors in the house. I was the evening keynote speaker, and I talked about fear factors in health care and health insurance that have patients and consumers in a great state of uncertainty.

Skyrocketing health insurance premiums and deductibles, ObamaCare rules and regulations, not being able to keep your doctor, no relief from a dysfunctional Congress and being denied services by some medical facilities because your insurance is not in their network are just some of the things that are scaring people sick.

Humanitarian Hoax of Socialism

The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

The distinguishing feature of fascism, communism, and Islamism is totalitarian centralized government. All power is vested in a central government and all aspects of life are controlled by its foundational ideology whether secular or religious.

Planned Parenthood colludes with dating app against pro-life conservatives

One of America’s most popular dating sites has introduced a new way to filter out pro-life users.

OkCupid, an online dating website, announced in September that users who answer “No” to the question, “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?” will be awarded a prominently displayed pink badge on their profiles that reads #IStandWithPP.

No Room for “Buffetnomics” in the GOP

Make no mistake about it: if Congress, particularly the United States Senate, fails to send a tax bill to the president’s desk, it will imperil the congressional majority, do lasting damage to the Republican Party, and potentially threaten the American economy. The clock is ticking.

Donald Trump made tax reform a cornerstone of his presidential campaign, but he was not the first Republican to do so. Since Ronald Reagan enacted the largest tax cut in American history and reinvigorated the American economy, every GOP nominee for president has promised to provide tax relief. In 2000, George W. Bush promised tax cuts and in 2008, GOP nominee John McCain said that tax cuts were the center of his economic plan. McCain, according to the New York Times, “outlined a long list of tax cuts he favored in the speech, which was delivered on the deadline for filing taxes. He called once again for making the Bush tax cuts, which he voted against, permanent, and for cutting corporate taxes, phasing out the alternative minimum taxand doubling the value of exemptions for each dependent to $7,000 from $3,500. He also proposed giving people the option of using a simpler, shorter tax form.”

Trump shuts out the NFL

When President Donald Trump squared off against NFL players protesting the national anthem, he showed that American conservatives still have the numbers to defeat left-wing social justice crusades. The key to victory is having confidence in those numbers, choosing battles wisely, and refusing to retreat an inch once the battle has begun.

After siding with the players who knelt during the National Anthem on Sunday, September 24, NFL leadership has now practically conceded defeat. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter on October 10 to the executives of all 32 NFL teams, stating, “Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.” The NFL owners will meet soon in New York to discuss whether to make standing for the anthem mandatory.

NAACP Attacking Jones Confirms Betrayal of Its People

As a black proud American, I was repulsed learning that the NAACP sent out a press release accusing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of violating his players free speech rights. In a nutshell, Jones told his employees, if you don’t stand for our national anthem, your derriere will ride the bench. I say, “Right on bro, it’s about time!”

The NAACP is scum, betrayers of its people. Their attack on Jerry Jones is another example of the far-left bitter hate group throwing absurd excrement against the wall, believing their fake news media homeys will make it stick. Sadly, the NAACP sold its soul to liberalism many moons ago, abandoning its mission of empowering blacks.

The Talking Dead

Hey Bernie, have you looked past your bad haircut lately? How about you, Jerry Brown (D-CA), with a state that has a $1.2 trillion shortfall in its public pension system & health care (Calpers, CalStrs & State health plan) and sitting on the crumbling remnants of what used to be the finest freeway system and infrastructure in the world… a figurative picture of what used to be one of the richest states in the union? California is quickly becoming a state only for the rich and those that serve them.

Venezuela is human tragedy in the making…food rationing, starvation, skyrocketing unemployment, widespread crime, political corruption, suppression of political parties (elimination of free speech), state-controlled media, hyperinflation, massive social unrest and gasoline shortages, despite having the largest oil reserves in the world.

The ‘Powertainment’ Industry is Crashing Down

Hollywood is imploding right before our eyes. The NFL is bleeding fans and advertising dollars. Most daily newspapers have shrunk to the size of a brochure. Evening news has turned into infotainment—less info and news and more ‘tainment.’

The harrowing tale of Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein is all anyone can talk about now, but hundreds, and maybe thousands were sure silent about Weinstein’s sexual exploits over the last two decades. Think of it as the worst kept secret in Hollywood and in liberal Democrat circles.

Hollywood incentivizes cowardice

Professor Caroline Heldman, who is working with some of Harvey Weinstein’s victims, said the following about Weinstein’s behavior in an interview with Piers Morgan on Wednesday: “I think it is systemic and that not only have we seen the tip of the iceberg but we will see other men facing allegations. I believe the flood gates are open. We are in a new era.”

Undoubtedly such sentiment is widespread: Many more Hollywood pigs like Weinstein are about to be exposed, and Tinsel Town will never be the same.

Union members fund $765 million left-wing payday

A new report released by the Center for Union Facts (CUF) reveals labor unions poured nearly $765 million into Democratic candidates, Left-wing causes, and liberal groups between 2012 and 2016, according to data from federal labor and campaign filings.

Democratic Party-aligned groups that received over $300 million from unions in that period include political heavyweights such as, the Center for American Progress, the Clinton Foundation, and Planned Parenthood (see my article on Planned Parenthood’s intrusion into online dating).

THE BOY SCOUTS TAKE OATH TO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

Another one of our great national institutions, the Boy Scouts of America, has officially lost its way. An organization with an impressive history of over one century has buckled to the insidious forces of political correctness. The latest sign occurred this week as the Boy Scouts formally opened their doors to girls. In 2018, girls will be able to join the Cub Scout program and the following year will become eligible to attain the highest rank, Eagle Scout.

This act of inclusion was wisely not followed by the Girl Scouts, which will remain an exclusively female organization. According to Jacqueline Alexander, CEO of Girl Scouts of Louisiana East, “I think people will decide what they want to do and we’re just going to continue to do what we do which is offer the best program for girls. I think people that have sons and daughters realize there’s going to be differences all through their lives ... it’s never going to be a one stop shop.”

Millionaires & Billionaires Fighting “Oppression”

Oppression certainly isn’t what it used to be. Instead of vicious police dogs, water cannon, billy clubs and Bull Connor, America is greeted with the sight of millionaires and billionaires kneeling in football stadiums trying to make white America feel guilty without so much as a Chihuahua yapping in the background.

And they aren’t alone. The Opposition Media, celebrity culture, leftist pastors, educators, politicians, various groin activists and Hollywood were all united in condemning the USA for the alleged subjugation of blacks. The protesters had no compunction about attacking the president and insulting the flag.

Jerry Brown’s California: Devastation, Plunder, Economic Failure

People like me have been explaining for many years that California is an example of leftist policies to avoid, and the poster child state of what not to do unless state suicide is the goal. California has become the Greece of the United States, and is cracking up. But this crack-up isn’t funny, as I cover in my new book co-authored with Jim Lacy, California’s War Against Donald Trump: Who Wins? Who Loses?”

Despite the dire circumstances, the ravenous left in California continues at breakneck speed to implement so many detrimental, dangerous laws and policies, that Jack, the amoral leader in “Lord of the Flies,” would blush. Stranded on an island, this group of schoolboys degenerate into savagery. It sounds like California, doesn’t it?
