Tucker Carlson interviews Colton Haab about CNN scripting questions - Haab doubles down, names names

Tucker Carlson interviews Colton Haab about CNN scripting questions - Haab doubles down, names names
Yesterday, I asked why anyone would ever be surprised that CNN would stack the deck in their gun control “Town Hall.”  Gun control, along with socialized medicine, is one of their two ideological holy grails. Anyone who’s watched CNN for any length of time knows that. CNN issued a strong denial, but they’ve done this sort of thing in their debates and in their coverage, so it’s no stretch to think they’d do it here.

Still, there are those - even in conservative media - who doubt Colton Haab’s claim that CNN had refused to let him ask his question, and instead scripted a question for him.  I’m not sure why. Most of the raised eyebrows leaned heavily on the idea that “CNN probably didn’t want him to run through a speech, so they edited whatever he presented.”

Trump Hits 50% Approval

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

This is the president’s highest job approval rating since mid-June of last year. President Obama earned 45% approval on this date in the second year of his presidency.—More…

CNN’s Van Jones: We shouldn’t have more guns in schools because teachers will shoot the black kids

CNN The Propaganda network: Also, the NRA is a lot like the KKK
Is there anyone out there who still takes CNN seriously?  That’s not a rhetorical question.  I’m honestly curious.  I know a few people will occasionally take a stab at defending Jake Tapper, but even that’s getting tough lately.

In the old days, sure.  We all knew which way the network leaned, but they at least tried to hide it. There was some middling attempt to maintain an air of credibility.  These days? These days things are different.

Watch President Trump’s entire CPAC speech here

Watch President Trump's entire CPAC speech here, Strong and well received
Like Pence’s speech yesterday, Trump’s CPAC appearance covered a lot of territory.  From the school shooting in Florida to MS-13, to DACA and ObamaCare, his freeform address was part victory lap, part promise, and part ...just a guywho seems to be enjoying himself.

Considering the Trump/NeverTrump divide at the conference, I’d say it was fairly strong and certainly well received.

If there was any actual news here, it’s that North Korea is about to be facing a new round of sanctions - “the heaviest ever imposed.”

Sheriff Israel’s Duty-Ducking Deputies His Scapegoats?

Sheriff Israel’s Duty-Ducking Deputies His Scapegoats?
Like a Laurence Olivier of the CNN ‘Townhall’ acting world, Sheriff Scott Israel was accorded standing ovations when he took NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch to task under the curiously benevolent directorship of Jake Tapper, on Wednesday night.

Never once did the Olivier of CNN’s “townhall” ever mention that he happened to be in possession of a video showing that armed and uniformed School Resource Deputy Scot Peterson had hovered safely outside the school building when Nikolas Cruz was inside killing students and teachers.

Christopher Steele, MI6, and the Trump Dossier

Christopher Steele, MI6, and the Trump Dossier
Did Brit spooks, working from this building in London, help Christopher Steele assemble his dossier on Donald Trump?

It’s the headquarters for Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), also known as MI6. Its mission is to collect foreign intelligence.

Despite what was portrayed in the James Bond movie “Skyfall,” the building remains undamaged, and, to date, un-entangled in the media drama surrounding the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.

Hillary’s Accused “Misogynist”  is Satan’s Public Enemy No. 1

Hillary’s Accused Misogynist is Satan’s Public Enemy No. 1
Way back when I was a hippie, all the pot and loud music couldn’t cloud the fact that the wrong side of any debate was usually the more dramatic, flowery presentation. The plentiful aesthetics, drugs, sex, music, movies, etc. of the 60s only proved to deaden everybody’s brains. Believe it or not, when LSD and marijuana first became popular,  I was actually excited because I (like eventually even Elvis) thought that drugs could change the thinking that got us into wars and racism. I remember when my flower-child friends were no longer ‘turning on’ for love and deep discussion. They just started doing drugs to get high. All the dope became just a different form of entertainment - beyond alcohol. And I have since sadly watched most all the progeny from that generation dumb down and fight for conformity and nice feelings for their lives instead of thoughtful substance and sanity. Common sense is dead, in that it is no longer common.

Hilarious: Justin Trudeau Dresses Like Indian Stereotype in India and Gets Slammed

Hilarious: Justin Trudeau Dresses Like Indian Stereotype in India and Gets Slammed
This is too funny. Justin Trudeau, the eye-candy, two-brain-cell wonder of a Canadian prime minister, is on an eight-day visit to India with his family. So Justin, being the good little virtue-signaling leftist he is, decided it would be a good idea to impress his hosts by dressing in over-the-top traditional Indian garb. Well, he certainly did make an impression. As the Daily Mail reports:

Ottawa could balance budget in 2019 (as promised) with modest spending reduction

Ottawa could balance budget in 2019 (as promised) with modest spending reduction
VANCOUVER—The Liberal government could still balance the federal budget by 2019/20—a promise Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made during the 2015 election campaign—by reducing program spending by just one per cent over the next two years, finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

The federal government is expected to table the 2018/19 budget next week.

NAFTA can help end corporate welfare

NAFTA can help end corporate welfare
When Amazon announced last year that it was seeking proposals from North American cities interested in being the base for the company’s second headquarters, politicians across the continent were whipped into a frenzy. It’s not hard to see why. What sane politician wouldn’t want to help deliver 50,000 new high-paying jobs to their city, state or province?

There’s nothing new about Amazon’s gambit. Industries such as film, aerospace and the automotive industry have been playing jurisdictions off against each other for years to get the sweetest deal possible. But, given its size, Amazon set off the mother of all bidding wars — and that’s bad news for taxpayers, since the main incentive politicians are using to try and seduce the company is large piles of taxpayer money. (In what must count as a victory of sorts, Toronto, the only Canadian city that made it onto Amazon’s shortlist of 20 finalists, mercifully managed to avoid promising any handouts beyond existing government subsidies.)

Why The Next Oil Boom Will Be Fueled By Blockchain

Why The Next Oil Boom Will Be Fueled By Blockchain
Big Oil is due for a disruption.

The world’s most important industry has been carrying on without any significant changes in its day to day routine for far too long.

But now, the new tech on the block has its sights set on the multi-trillion-dollar oil and gas sector.

NRA offers free help to schools that hire armed guards, warns of overreach

The National Rifle Association offered free help to schools that hire armed guards to protect their students and backed expansion of the federal government’s list of banned guy buyers, but it defiantly warned Thursday against Washington’s overreach after last week’s school massacre.

Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre said FBI bungling, mental illness and lax school security were at the root of the Valentine’s Day shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He said the solution is better protection, not tighter gun laws.—More…

Defending the rule of law

Defending the rule of law
Israel’s system of democracy has been under assault for more than two decades. Since the early 1990s, elected officials have fought a losing battle to maintain their power. The legal fraternity and the police, acting with the enthusiastic support and often at the urging of the politically biased media, have seized politicians’ governing prerogatives and powers one by one. These actions have all been justified in the name of the rule of law.

Today, Israel’s democracy – that is, the ability of the nation to determine its course through the election of representatives that share their convictions – is threatened as never before.

American culture has been transformed into a godless culture with no moral principles

American culture has been transformed into a godless culture with no moral principles
After the school shooting in Florida, liberals came out of the woodwork once again demanding more gun control laws. I find it despicable that the Marxist media and worthless politicians all wait with baited breath for such horrible events to happen so they can use them to attack our second amendment rights. Their hypocrisy is stunningly arrogant and blatantly obvious. They are desperately trying to convince people that guns are responsible for these atrocities, but the truth of the matter is that the media and Hollywood both share responsibility for such atrocities.

Moreover, their goal is to disarm all Americans, although they don’t admit it. On top of that, a few idiots, urged on by the Marxist media, destroyed their own guns in protest. Those people probably shouldn’t have had a gun in the first place. I wonder if any of these idiots destroyed their own cars in protest after the Charlottesville incident? Why didn’t liberals cry for victims of 9/11 or call for laws to restrict aircraft ownership after 9/11? That would make just as much sense as banning guns. However, the problem isn’t guns. The problem is the violent culture created by Hollywood, the Marxist media, and the godless state.

The Humanitarian Hoax of Multiple Realities

The Humanitarian Hoax of Multiple Realities
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 ideological strivings of our Founding Fathers were rooted in freedom, liberty, limited government, and the separation of church and state. They sought to create a more perfect union - a society of individuals cooperating by mutual consent. Psychiatrist Lyle Rossiter’s stunning book The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness details America’s extraordinary achievement of ordered liberty, how its infrastructure complements the nature of man, and how the collectivist liberal narrative is pathologically antithetical to ordered liberty.

Sabotage

When a person or entity tends to disrupt, subvert, impair or undermine the function of government, it falls under a fine line between freedom of speech and treason.

There are elements in the Democratic party, who through their actions and rhetoric, are sabotaging the efforts of our lawful elected President and the war against the American people, who elected him into that office.

This is a first step toward overthrowing a government when the rights of their opposition, the Constitution and the freedom of thought is manacled by political correctness for not conforming to their dogmatic liberalism.

Trudeau: People who are cynical about institutions are ‘lazy’
By now everyone in the English-speaking world knows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is spending a week in India. As has been the case lately, Trudeau is being mocked around the world. Accompanying him on his tax-payer funded junket are his wife, this three children, six cabinet ministers and a slew of others.

Despite statements to the contrary, Trudeau is being snubbed by the government of India. When he and his entourage landed in Delhi, they were greeted by a junior minister of agriculture. The minister was all dressed up for the occasion, wearing what appears to be blue jeans and a windbreaker.

Bishop Denies Communion to Pro-Abortion Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin: “Until He Repents of His Si

Pro-life Catholics who wish Catholic Church leaders would step up and deny communion to leading politicians who support abortion are getting good news today.

One Catholic bishop is denying communion to pro-abortion Democrat Dick Durbin, a top Democrat in the Senate who has long supported and promoted abortion. Durbin joined other Democrats to block a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks.—More…
