Even Jake Tapper seems to think CNN’s North Korea puff piece is absurd

CNN star Jake Tapper appeared to troll his own network on Sunday night when he tweeted against media members who “hate” American leaders more than they “hate the Kim Jong Un regime” on the heels of CNN being mocked for a glowing puff piece about Kim Jong Un’s sister.

“If you hate US leaders more than you hate the Kim Jong Un regime, you really need to read up on North Korea,” Tapper wrote. He also attached three links to websites that highlight various human rights violations that North Koreans face on a regular basis—More…

At Least 17 Democratic Socialists Of America Are Running For Office In Texas In 2018

Texas is in real trouble politically. The giant red state has been targeted by the left and they are dumping millions into the state to turn it blue forever. There are at least 17 Democratic Socialists of America candidates running for office in the state now. They look like just ordinary people… but these are socialists. They are communist-lite. They are Marxists and they are a stone cold threat to our way of life and our freedoms in this nation.

As the Texas Observer put it, the revolution will be down-ballot. First up is Franklin Bynum’s campaign for Harris County misdemeanor court judge. He’s a 35 year-old former public defender and says he’s seen Houston’s criminal courts routinely railroad the poor into convictions that drive them further into poverty. Now, after nearly 10 years subject to the whims of conservative judges, he’s aiming to take the gavel for himself. I guarantee you that he will do what all liberal activist judges do… he’ll set criminals free to go back to what they were doing before. This has nothing to do with the poor. One of the primary goals of communists such as Van Jones is to empty our prisons regardless of the consequences.—More…

Explosion, fire at power plant cause blackout in northern Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico —An explosion and fire at an electric substation threw much of northern Puerto Rico into darkness late Sunday in a setback for the U.S. territory’s efforts to fully restore power more than five months after Hurricane Maria started the longest blackout in U.S. history. The island’s Electric Power Authority said several municipalities were without power, including parts of the capital, San Juan, but they were optimistic it could be restored within a day as they worked to repair a substation that controls voltage.

The blast illustrated the challenges of restoring a power grid that was already crumbling before it was devastated by the Category 4 hurricane.—More…

New Poll: You Won’t Be Allowed To Vote Republican Against Democrats In November

Schwarzenegger didn’t like it that conservatives kept winning Republican primaries. Imagine that. He only got in because he was able to bypass the Republican primary via the Gray Davis recall ballot.

So, he worked with Democrats to change the rules, and shut out conservatives by making every election work more like recall ballot. Partisan primaries are dead in California. And once again, no Republican will be allowed on the ballot in November against Senator Dianne Feinstein, or the top Democrats for Governor, per this new poll.—More…
