Things I Say That Make Some Conservatives Nervous

A friend of Rush Limbaugh thought it was a mistake for Trump to condemn NFL players for taking a knee during our national Anthem because there are more pressing issues warranting Trump’s attention. Rush told his friend the NFL issue is important because it is another attack in Leftists’ war on our culture which no one is addressing. I thought, “Amen brother!”

As a Christian, black conservative political activist, I traveled all over America for several years working to elect conservatives in house and senate races. Fellow conservatives always got nervous when I wrote articles about cultural issues.

Worker warned hotel before Las Vegas shooter opened fire on crowd

LAS VEGAS—A maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel before the shooter began firing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby musical performance.

The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.—More…

Harvey Weinstein isn’t about male misbehavior, but leftist power

It’s a safe bet that whatever the issue, Lena Dunham should never be heard from in any way relating to it. Not because, as she would assert, she’s a woman. But because she’s a narcissistic machine capable of doing little except taking pictures of herself and emitting leftist memes.

But the New York Times decided to give her space for an op-ed.

“Harvey Weinstein and the Silence of the Men,” is the headline. And that’s all I’ll quote.


Mainstream media ignores Wasserman Schultz’s shady IT staffer

If a Pakistani-born aide to the head of the Republican National Committee was caught up in bank fraud and conspiracy scandal, it would presumably dictate mainstream media news coverage the way President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia have dominated in recent months. But this is currently going on with the former head of the Democratic National Committee – and nobody in the mainstream media seems to care.

Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aide Imran Awan pleaded not guilty in September to multiple federal charges including bank fraud and conspiracy and most Americans have no idea because the mainstream media has largely ignored the story.—More..

Report: Negative information about a Weinstein accuser was offered to Washington Post just last week

Given that Harvey Weinstein’s reputation as a serial mistreater of women was apparently an “open secret” in Hollywood, people are rightfully wondering why it took so long for a major media outlet to break the story.

As it turns out, the producer was apparently an adept media manipulator who pressured outlets and journalists out of exposing his reprehensible behavior and planted negative stories about his accusers in the press.—More…

Of course, Trump’s random musing about NBC’s broadcast license is the end of civilization

The constitutional power of the president is limited, but his power to get people to do things is limited only by the bounds of his persuasive power. You might think Donald Trump is a little short in that area because he is so widely and deeply reviled. I disagree.

Trump is a troll without equal, and his ability to inspire completely insane overreactions to his words and actions is quite something.

Six-in-ten say United Conservative Party will be good for Alberta

With the unification of the former Wildrose and Progressive Conservative parties culminating Oct. 28 with the election of a new leader of the United Conservative Party (UCP), Premier Rachel Notley will know her challenger for the 2019 election.

Whether it turns out to be Brian Jean, Jason Kenney, or a surprise choice other than those two front-runners, the new leader will find himself on a relatively promising path to the Premier’s office, according to a new Angus Reid Institute analysis of quarterly polling data.

Does NBC have a Harvey Weinstein protection problem?

As you may or may not remember, Ronan Farrow used to be an MSNBC anchor. His show got the axe, but he still has a non-exclusive deal with NBC News. What you might not have known, until yesterday at least, is that Farrow intended to run his explosive story of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct at NBC. The network, for reasons that remain nebulous, refused to air it.

They spiked the story, which eventually ran on The New Yorker’s website.

Deficit in FY 2017 soared to $668 billion

I have often expressed alarm at the size of the national debt, which has now topped $20 trillion, and every year we run a deficit we add to it. You will hear Beltway types insist this isn’t a crisis because “we owe it to ourselves” or “it’s not that much as a percentage of GDP” or whatever.

Bolshevik.

Wildfires have killed 15, destroyed 1,500 homes

Maybe after Vegas nothing shocks us, or strikes us as beyond the realm of comprehension. This should. California is particularly susceptible to this sort of thing with its extended droughts and because of the nature of its terrain, but carnage of this magnitude is surprising nonetheless. The knee-jerk reaction is to say that people had plenty of warning and should have been able to get out.

Of course, the reality is often not so simple:

Biological reality beats radicals at Boise State

The College Fix reports that transgender activists are gathering signatures on a petition to get Boise State University Professor Scott Yenor fired for writing an article for the Daily Signal about the destructive ways radical feminists have effected revolutionary changes in society. Professor Yenor writes their next big goal is to promote the transgender activist agenda, especially its drive to repeal age of consent laws so that children may self-diagnose as transgender and be socially and medically transitioned without their parents’ knowledge or consent.

Bannon: GOP’s Entire ‘Establishment Globalist Clique’ Must Go

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) “is an absolute disgrace,” but he’s just one of the many Republican lawmakers who “have total contempt for the base,” Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s former chief strategist, said Monday night.

“When you want to talk about why there’s no repeal and replace, why there’s no tax cut, why there’s no tax reform, why there’s no infrastructure bill, you saw it right there,” Bannon told Fox News’s Sean Hannity.—More…

SCOTUS Backs Trump, Dismisses Travel Ban Challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a legal challenge to President Donald Trump’s travel ban late Tuesday, concluding that the ban’s expiration in September effectively ended the controversy.

The development is a partial victory for the administration, which urged the high court to dismiss the case after the ban expired Sept. 24. Per the terms of the order, a ban on migrant entry from six countries with high instances of terror was applied for a 90-day period.—More…

Disney, Weinstein Company Could Face Harassment Lawsuits as Scandal Widens

Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg, who ran the Walt Disney Company during the Harvey Weinstein years (1993-2005), have both denied any knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct during those years. This would include any sexual harassment settlements made during that time. The Weinstein Company also denies any knowledge. These denials could be tested in a court of law should those alleging harassment and abuse choose to press the issue of corporate liability.

In 1979, two brothers from the outer boroughs of New York, Bob and Harvey Weinstein, had a dream and founded Miramax. Named after their parents, Miriam and Max, the company specialized in distributing smaller films, independent products the studios were not interested in.—More…

Now, We Know My Mother Has Flaws, but….

There’s a disclaimer many of us have been conditioned to utter, quite reflexively, and it’s something that has got to stop. When preparing a defense of the United States (against, lamentably, other “Americans”), we may preface it with, “Well, I know our country isn’t perfect” or, as pundit Tucker Carlson said while debating a bigoted lawyer last month, “I don’t deny…that this country is flawed….” Actually, our perspective is flawed.

IER Response to EPA’s Clean Power Plan Repeal Proposal

WASHINGTON — Institute for Energy Research President Thomas Pyle has issued the following statement regarding EPA’s proposed repeal of its existing source rule, commonly known as the Clean Power Plan, in accordance with President Trump’s energy independence executive order:

“The Clean Power Plan was never about clean power. The nation’s electricity generation fleet is already very clean and getting cleaner—as shown by the nearly 70-percent reduction in criteria pollutants since 1970. The plan was really about instituting more federal control over a dispersed system and driving up the cost of reliable electricity in line with the previous administration’s climate ideology. The result would have been residents in more than 40 states experiencing double-digit percentage increases in their electricity rates by 2030. For that reason, we preferred to call it the Creating Poverty Plan.

“Beyond its implications in terms of dollars and cents, the plan wasn’t cooperative federalism as EPA claimed, but coercive federalism and a misapplication of the Clean Air Act. It extended EPA power in unprecedented ways and marked a clear deviation from the agency’s traditional role. IER commends EPA for its decision to rescind this harmful rule. This is a major victory for American families because it enables all of us to continue reaping the benefits of the affordable energy we need to power our lives and grow the economy.”
