Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, caught on hot mic trashing media

May 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Oh. So, a solid understanding of the media’s bias, agenda, and reckless disregard for reality isn’t just a thing here in the United States? ...And here I thought we were the only people at odds with the blatant hackery of our press.

Good to know it’s not just us.

I’ll just leave this here….

CNN interviews panel of 3rd graders about Trump presidency. ...Yes really

May 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

There’s a question that Democrats love to ask whenever they don’t control the White House.  Kids are, as we’ve been told a thousand times, our most precious national resource. It takes a village to raise them. So, whenever they’re faced with the horrors of a Republican President, Dems want to know: What are the children thinking?

Oh, woe. Woe to the children!  They’re being forced to live through the Trump presidency! The guy has only been in office a few months, and already the scars are piling up. One wonders how they can even sleep at night, knowing that the monsters have moved out from under their beds and into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  One day, we will no doubt be faced with a generation of barely-coherent alcoholics who waste away on the corner bar stool muttering “...damnmit. ...It was those damn Trump/Pence years. They did this to me.”

Joe Biden rattles 2020 sabre: ‘I never thought she was a great candidate.’ ...‘I was.’

May 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Back when we were all watching the Joe Biden “will he, won’t he” dance, I was pretty sure he would.  I knew there would immense pressure - mostly from the Clinton camp - to deny him the nomination, but I genuinely thought he’d go for it.  As I (incorrectly) wrote at the time, it just made sense.

“The current Dem lineup features a woman no one likes or wants to vote for, a geriatric socialist crackpot who will collapse in the general, and two or three other guys that virtually no one has ever heard of.”

As wrong as I was about his decision, I was absolutely correct about the fact that he would have fared better than Hillary.  I’m not saying he would have won, since he still would have had to put forth and defend an agenda, but I am saying that he had a long list of positives and virtually none of the negatives which applied to Mrs. Clinton.

 

Maxine Waters admits there’s no evidence to support the crazy conspiracy theory she’s offering

May 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

If there’s a poster child for people who’ve lost themselves down the “impeach Trump” rabbit hole, it must be Maxine Waters. The California Representative has been making all the news rounds, proudly displaying both her abject ignorance and her absolute conviction that Putin was running Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Her latest revelation is that Putin wrote Trump’s famous “lock her up” campaign chant.  Apparently, when he wasn’t busy running the evil empire with help from Obama’s post-election flexibility, Vlad was coming up with rally slogans for a real-estate mogul who may or may not have decided to run.

Anthony ‘Carlos Danger’ Weiner to plead guilty - comes to completion of underage sexting case

May 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Carlos Danger, possibly better known by the equally embarrassing moniker “Anthony Weiner,” has come to point of completion in his sexting scandal.  As you’re no doubt aware, Weiner embarrassed his wife (and damaged Hillary’s presidential bid) by sexting and sharing photos of his nether-regions with at least one underaged girl.  Then he did it again. ...And again.  ...Ad nauseam.

You can witness her abject humiliation, as it happened, in the video below.

Still, his doting Mrs. stood by him.  Just like Hillary Clinton, feminist icon Huma Abedin sucked up the disrespect and refused to leave her man. To this day, the world’s most understanding - yet totally empowered - woman says that she and her hubby are working on their relationship.

In midst of a feeding frenzy, media further beclowns itself by pouncing on obvious Putin joke

May 18, 2017 — Robert Laurie

The left-wing media has worked itself into a ridiculous, substance-free, feeding frenzy. They’ve completely abandoned anything resembling real journalism in favor of stories comprised of insinuation, no identifiable sources, and no proof. Every last one of these so-called “reporters” are trying desperately to be the one who lands a killing blow, so they’re throwing anything and everything at the wall to see what they can make stick.

Imagine a school of 50 sharks, churning up the water, frantically tearing at a whale.  If someone drops a boot into the chaos, the sharks aren’t going to reject it as inedible.  They’re just going to swallow it whole, and worry about it later - or not.

That’s the scenario playing out with the whole “Putin pays Trump” story.

In case you haven’t seen it, here it is from the Washington Post.  Note how seriously they take it.

Wait. Is that Time Magazine cover just a rip-off of Mad Magazine?

May 18, 2017 — Robert Laurie

A few minutes ago, we showed you the widely-adored-by-liberals cover of the new Time Magazine.

Now, it looks like someone is a little peeved about it.  No, not because it’s a ludicrous symbol of a tin-foil hat conspiracy theory. They’re peeved because it’s a rip-off.

The outraged party? Alfred E. Neuman.  It seems a strikingly similar image was posted by Mad Magazine just a few short months ago.

Uh-oh.  Time’s gone and made MAD mad.

TIME: Russian interference was revenge against Clinton, 5 years in the making, U.S. intel didn’t thi

May 18, 2017 — Robert Laurie

You may have seen the newest cover of Time Magazine.  It’s being passed around by faux-outraged liberals like a joint at a Grateful Dead concert.  If you haven’t seen it,—See Below.

TIME: Russian interference in election was 5 years in the making, U.S. intel didn’t think much of it

Spooky, right?  It conjures up all sorts of nefarious deals, the return of the ‘evil empire,’ and the Soviet-era cold war that progressives suddenly seem to love so, so, much. The great game is back, baby, and Time is here to relive its glory days.

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich leaked ‘thousands of emails’ to Wikileaks

May 16, 2017 — Robert Laurie

You will no doubt recall the sad story of Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who was found murdered on the street outside of his home. Just 12 days after his death, Wikileaks released the emails that proved Hillary Clinton and the DNC were conspiring to destroy Bernie Sanders. These were, obviously, obtained from mysterious sources.  Almost immediately, there was speculation that Rich might, in fact, be that source.

That didn’t fit the narrative, though. The official Democrat line has been - and remains - “Evil Russian hackers conspired with Trump to destroy Hillary because she would have been such an amazing president.”

First Mike Lee, now Mitch McConnell: Trump should choose Merrick Garland as FBI director

May 16, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Your reactions ranged from “that would be brilliant” to “no . . . never” when we first raised this last week. Or I should say, when conservative Sen. Mike Lee raised it last week. Some of you saw it as the same brand of brilliant triangulation I did, and weren’t too worried about Garland being a Democrat because FBI director is not really a partisan job. Others thought the last thing we needed was to put anyone from the other side in a position to lead this Russia investigation or anything else.

So. Here we are almost a week later. Now it’s not just one conservative back-bencher saying it. Now it’s the Senate Majority Leader doing so in the form of a formal recommendation to the president:

Sorry Dems: Chaffetz leaving for Fox News. ...Not “Russia” or “jail.”

May 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

As we told you before, the left was salivating over the prospect of a Jason Chaffetz scandal.  When he announced he would be walking away from Congress, Dems went into conspiracy theory overdrive. After all, government is the only thing on Earth that matters. There could be no logical reason for Chaffetz’s resignation - unless he was tied to those pesky Russian hackers. Chaffetz, they argued, wanted to get out before he landed in prison.

There was, of course, nothing to it.  It was more left-wing fan-fiction designed to make themselves feel better about the sorry state of their party.

Here we go again: Schumer promises to obstruct Trump’s FBI appointment

May 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Let’s get one thing out of the way. Chuck Schumer is a vile, duplicitous, self-aggrandizing, snake who doesn’t give a rat’s rear about the country or the ideals he claims to support. A quick look at his career reveals a textbook example of the two-faced congressional lifer that we’ve all come to loathe.  He exists not to serve his state, his voters, or his nation. He exists to serve and perpetuate the myth of Chuck Schumer’s greatness - nothing more.

None of that should come as a surprise to anyone.  In fact, I only mention it so that when I turn my anger toward the GOP, you’ll understand I’m aware Schumer is the real issue.  That said, the Republicans are, as usual, driving me nuts.

If Lester Holt is right about this one thing, Trump had better get his head on straight ...and quick

May 12, 2017 — Robert Laurie

If you missed Lester Holt’s interview with Donald Trump, you missed… well… not much.  President Trump handled himself fairly well, Holt spent most of his time interrupting, and little or no news was made.  You can tell Holt was desperate for something juicy, but If you pay attention to developing stories, there wasn’t much meat on the bone. I suspect he walked away disappointed.

However boring it may have been, there are a couple of interesting tidbits - both of which occurred outside of the actual sit down.

John Oliver uses Trump-created tax exemption to cut taxes on $9.5 Million Manhattan penthouse

May 12, 2017 — Robert Laurie

I have a confession to make.  I think John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” is funny. It’s wrong about virtually everything, but it’s wrong in an amusing way.

That said, I doubt the host has too much to do with the amount of entertainment I’m getting.  He probably just shows up, reads the DNC talking points he’s handed, mugs, and leans on his British accent to sell his arrogant attitde. That’s, OK, though.  Like I said, I think it’s done well and ends up being pretty funny.  He’s certainly better than the seven or eight other people currently doing the same thing.

However, hypocrisy is never far from a rich, left-wing, joke monkey.  Ripping on the wealthy is a growth industry, and John Oliver has made a tidy fortune by complaining about the one percent while simultaneously joining their ranks.

Aetna to lose almost $1 Billion from 2014-2017 - Will abandon ALL ObamaCare exchanges

May 11, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Last year, you may recall that one of the nation’s largest insurers, Aetna, announced it had suffered major losses under the failing Affordable Care Act.  As a result, it was pulling out of many ACA exchanges.  The company said it intended to soldier on in just four states -  Delaware, Iowa, Nebraska, and Virginia. 

Back then, Aetna claimed losses of almost $450 million.  A few weeks ago, they announced that number has risen to $700 million since 2014, and they trimmed Iowa and Virginia from the list.  They promised they’d “continue to evaluate” future plans for Delaware and Nebraska.

It appears they’ve done just that.  They expect to lose another $200 million through the remainder of 2017, for a total of almost $1 Billion. They’ve decided that enough is enough, and the dumpster fire known as ObamaCare has completely lost the insurer.
