‘OUT!’ Trump orders CNN star Jim Acosta to leave Oval Office after reporter’s newe

President Trump kicked CNN star Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office Tuesday after the network’s senior White House correspondent badgered him with racially charged questions.

Acosta has made a habit of grandstanding and interrupting when Trump and his surrogates are available to the media. Tuesday was no exception, as Acosta yelled, “Mr. President,” three times before finally getting Trump’s attention.—More…

Tattletale Dicky Durbin

Tattletale Dicky Durbin
Tattletale, tattletale
Hanging on a bull’s tail
When the bull has to pee
You will get a cup of tea.

Children’s nursery rhyme

“Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!”—President Trump, in reference to Dicky Durbin telling tales out of school

Most folks dislike a snitch—unless you are a liberal, in which case snitching, leaking, and lying are to be expected, even applauded.

VIDEO: Trump orders CNN's grandstanding clown Jim Acosta out of Oval Office
Trump was actually pretty chill about it, and he didn’t take Acosta’s bait. He didn’t yell, and you have to listen rather closely to hear him say, “Out.”

But he absolutely does, and it’s easy to figure out why:

Liberty Counsel Challenges CA Forced Abortion Speech Law

Liberty Counsel Challenges CA Forced Abortion Speech Law
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief today in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, one of four cases brought before the Supreme Court by crisis pregnancy centers challenging the law as a violation of the First Amendment guarantees of free speech and free exercise of religion.

The Supreme Court has agreed to review the California Reproductive FACT Act, which compels pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to post notices regarding the availability of free and low-cost abortions in their physical clinics, printed material and online. The Court agreed to review the NIFLA case on the limited question of “whether the disclosures required by the California Reproductive FACT Act violate the protections set forth in the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment, applicable to the States through the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Bannon Is Subpoenaed in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

WASHINGTON — Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, was subpoenaed last week by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to testify before a grand jury as part of the investigation into possible links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

The move marked the first time Mr. Mueller is known to have used a grand jury subpoena to seek information from a member of Mr. Trump’s inner circle. The special counsel’s office has used subpoenas before to seek information on Mr. Trump’s associates and their possible ties to Russia or other foreign governments.—More…

Ear-piercing Screams to Mark ‘The Rise of the Woman’ in Weekend’  Women’s Ma

Ear-piercing Screams to Mark ‘The Rise of the Woman’ in Weekend’  Women’s March
Harvey Weinstein-like producers of BIG FICTION are releasing a Blockbuster Movie on the 1st Anniversary of the Women’s March.  This time Linda Sarsour, Ashley Judd et all will take a back seat to millions of screeching-for-social-justice bit players schooled by the progressive left over the past year.

Their amplified message is that the angry white men who run the system have gone from suppressing women to openly sexually harassing them, egged on by President Donald Trump, picture perfect framed as the most hated leader on earth.

We’ve seen this movie and all of its myriad versions since November of 2016, but this is the movie they intend to keep running ad nauseum.  They’ll keep their blockbuster running on the big screen until there is no chance that another “nationalist”, “populist” “Xenophobe”  is ever elected leader anywhere else on the world map.

Just so you know, Dick Durbin has a history of lying - sometimes about off-the-record White House me

Just so you know, Dick Durbin has a history of lying - sometimes about off-the-record White House meetings
Did Trump say the word “shithole?”  I don’t know.  I also don’t care. If he did or didn’t, we’re still about a million times better off than we would have been under President Hillary Clinton.  Would I like to see a President who was an unsullied moral paragon AND a down-in-the-trenches conservative?  Sure. Unfortunately, the GOP has worked hard to make sure that’s never an option, so I’ll take what I can get.

As long as I like the legislation he signs and his judicial appointments, I can stomach the occasional mild unpleasantry.

DHS Secretary Nielsen: Data shows 73 percent of U.S. terrorism convicts are foreign-born

DHS Secretary Nielsen: Data shows 73 percent of U.S. terrorism convicts are foreign-born
One fiction the left desperately wants to peddle is that most acts of terrorism in the United States are committed not by Islamic radicals, but by white, male, Christian Americans. I guess it’s easy enough to understand why. The left has no higher agenda than the marginalization of Christianity, which requires two things: 1. Associate Christians and Christian beliefs with evil and ignorance wherever possible; and 2. Defend any belief system that disagrees with Christianity, no matter what its adherents do.

So when the Department of Homeland Security came out today with a study showing that 73 percent of those convicted of terrorism in the United States in recent years have been foreign-born, it was all just too much for CBS’s John Dickerson to take. In an interview with Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Dickerson tried his based to argue it can’t be true:

Bannon to meet with House Intel Committee today. ...So, here's Bill Murray
Today is an interesting day. Former chief strategist Steve Bannon is going to meet with the House Intel Committee, where he’ll answer questions about the whole “Russia” thing. That means that, at some point, we’re going to learn which version of Steve Bannon will survive its time in the Thunderdome.

On one side you have alleged-conservative-at-all-costs Steve Bannon. He’s the guy who turned Breitbart into a propaganda outlet and supports Trump no matter what.

U.S. oil production sets new record, setting stage for what Trump calls ‘global dominance’

U.S. oil production sets new record, setting stage for what Trump calls 'global dominance'
Funny thing about our president and the whole “so much winning” thing. We may very well be doing all the winning he promised, but it won’t seem like it to you because all you hear about is shitholes and Russia and whatever other trivia is dominating the headlines that day. Supposedly CNN had nearly 200 mentions of the shithole thing yesterday.

Meanwhile, our global energy dominance is developing in such stunning fashion they can’t deny it even in Reuterville:

NFL’s kneeling comes to abrupt halt: Protesters miss playoffs

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show.

It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason.—More…

As Facebook Shoots Themselves in the Foot, New Social Media Platform Pays You to Post

Last week, Facebook announced that they will be keeping all their users in happy little bubbles that won’t show them anything controversial, thus ensuring an entire social media platform devoted to pictures of what people are eating for dinner. Illustrating just how unwelcome this change was, after Facebook announced it’s changing the algorithm to focus on friends and family while excluding news and information, the company saw a near-instant drop of 4.4 percent—costing Mark Zuckerberg nearly $3.3 billion.

In a Facebook post last Thursday night, Zuckerberg said that public content from brands had inundated news feeds, overtaking posts from personal connections. By the end of Friday, Facebook shares were trading at $179.37, down more than 4.4 percent from Thursday’s price of $187.77, according to a report in Newsweek.—More….

Reversing the Damage Done by Chairman Barack

Reversing the Damage Done by Chairman Barack
Friday’s March for Life, 45 years after the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand, demonstrates how difficult it is to reverse the effects of evil decisions and policies. The fact that complete victory is not immediately at hand does not cause true believers to give up the fight. That’s why thousands will turn out for the 45th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Overturning Marxist or “progressive” policies is a difficult challenge when much of the media and even some prominent members of your own political party are against you. But the economic and financial turnaround under President Trump has already been amazing. Trump’s record of appointing conservative and pro-life judges is also impressive. Some pro-lifers have declared Trump is the most pro-life president in modern history.
