PILING ON SHERIFF CLARKE

May 29, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Allegations of academic plagiarism are the latest weapon the left-wingers of the mainstream media are using in an effort to take down Milwaukee County, Wisc., Sheriff David Clarke.

The Left’s politics of personal destruction played no small role in the defeat at the polls last November of Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R). More recently, the Left played a role in the departure of top-rated Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, and now that they smell conservative blood in the water, the character assassins at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America are stepping up their efforts to force Sean Hannity off the airwaves.

These people are going after Clarke, a high-profile conservative and outspoken champion of law and order, because they view him as a threat to Democratic Party interests. Democrats, of course, think they hold a monopoly on black support and are threatened by strong black conservatives, so they attack and smear them at every opportunity.

Islam hard at work: ISIS claims responsibility for bombing at Manchester concert venue

May 23, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Islamic State has taken responsibility for the suicide bombing yesterday of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that left at least 22 people dead and 59 others wounded, reports John Rossomando of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Many of the dead and injured are young girls.

Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh, boasted Tuesday about its involvement in the Muslim terrorist attack, referring to the now-aerosolized bomber as a “soldier of the Caliphate.”

“Worse and more harmful is coming upon the Worshippers of the Cross and their friends with the permission of God. Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds,” the statement said.

PC brats and parents walk out on VP Pence at Notre Dame

May 23, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

A few dozen virtue-signaling graduates and their family members made some kind of political statement by walking out on Vice President Mike Pence as he started delivering a commencement address on his home turf at Indiana’s Notre Dame University on Sunday.

The event provides yet another reason why America’s thought-stifling universities should be defunded and the ground sown with salt.

Spokes-whiner and valedictorian Caleb Joshua Pine took a cheap shot at President Trump as he exhorted his fellow graduates to “stand against scapegoating of Muslims.” Tedious stuff.

In his speech, the former Indiana governor took aim at the Left and the rampant, un-American totalitarianism of the nation’s institutions of higher education.

RNC fundraising surges while DNC has worst April since 2009

May 22, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

In April the Republican National Committee raised more than double what the Democratic National Committee brought in during the same period, making last month the DNC’s worst April since 2009, the Washington Examiner reports.

So much for the “resistance” movement against President Trump.

New Federal Election Commission (FEC) data show the DNC raised $4.7 million in April. “While this is an off-year for fundraising, the DNC hauled $8.5 million last year, and nearly $5 million in 2015. Between 2010 and 2014, the Democrats received anywhere from $6.3 million to $14.4 million per year.”

Federal judge nixes Clock Boy religious discrimination lawsuit

May 22, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The child exploited by CAIR and President Barack Hussein Obama to create the false impression that America is a seething hotbed of Muslim-hatred had his nonsensical religious discrimination lawsuit tossed by a federal judge in Dallas.

I am referring to Ahmed Mohamed, the teenaged poster boy for “Islamophobia” whom the Council on American-Islamic Relations relentlessly pimped as a victim. In fact, Mohamed is a bomb hoaxer called Clock Boy by some.

The young Sudanese-American made headlines when he was suspended Sept. 14, 2015, from MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, for bringing a disassembled clock that resembled a bomb to class. He was also arrested and processed by police, leading his father and others to complain he was treated with inappropriate roughness.

Google’s left-wing bias steers users to vicious articles trashing the late Roger Ailes

May 22, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans.

This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered. (See screen grab of search results above.)

Search “Roger Ailes” at Google and “you’ll find that the top results consist almost entirely of articles from several liberal publications savaging his reputation as a person” and that the entries “are strikingly cruel and meanspirited.”

Among the top search results is a piece by the vile small-c communist Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone calling Ailes “one of the worst Americans ever.” From his cocktail conservative perch at the New York Times, the loathsome Never Trumper Bret Stephens labels him “the man who wrecked conservatism.”

Google is by far the most used search engine in the world.

Think about that.

Leftist Ex-Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Deep State sabotaging Trump

May 19, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) — no Republican and definitely not a conservative — said what everyone in Washington knows but refuses to say: the “deep state” within the U.S. intelligence community is attempting to overthrow President Trump.

“The political process of the United States of America being under attack by intelligence agencies and individuals in those agencies,” Kucinich said Wednesday evening on Sean Hannity’s TV show.

You have politicization of agencies that is resulting in leaks from anonymous, unknown people and the intention is to take down a president. Now, this is very dangerous to America. It’s a threat to our republic, it constitutes a clear and present danger to our way of life. So we have to be asking, what is the motive of these people? Who’s putting these leaks out? Why doesn’t somebody come forward and make a charge and put their name and reputation behind it, instead of attacking through the media and not substantiating their position?

Slain DNC official contacted WikiLeaks?

May 17, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The young Democratic National Committee official rumored to have leaked DNC documents to WikiLeaks and who was murdered in the nation’s capital last year was, just as previously claimed, in touch with Julian Assange’s document-dumping hacktivist group, media reports confirm.

This raises the possibility that Russia had nothing to do with the attacks on the DNC’s computer servers – assuming those actually took place. And if Russia didn’t hack the DNC, then the left-wing conspiracy theory that Russian President Vladimir Putin launched cyber-attacks on the DNC to help Donald Trump win the election – and that Trump knowingly colluded with the Russians in those attacks – is undermined.

Despite the mass media hysteria, there is still no publicly available evidence the Trump campaign somehow worked with Russia to affect the election result. Sources in newspaper articles are never identified. There is not a scintilla of proof of improper conduct. All we have is the alleged say-so of faceless CIA spooks like Evan McMullin whose motives are questionable.

IMPEACHMENT FEVER

May 16, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Democrats and their media allies are whipping themselves into a frenzy in their quest to impeach the duly elected 45th president of the United States and drive him from office.

It is part of the Left’s collective mental breakdown. These people still cannot accept that Donald Trump defeated the anointed Hillary Clinton in November so they lash out at the president and his successors, often violently, as we’ve seen in recent months. This Trump Derangement Syndrome allows left-wingers to justify a growing laundry list of antisocial behavior in the furtherance of their goal. The same people pushing Trump’s impeachment sat by silently as Barack Obama, the most despotic, overreaching president since the great proto-fascist Woodrow Wilson, committed impeachable offenses nearly every day.

Decrepit commie loser claims his party’s member rolls boosted by Trump

May 15, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) claims President Trump is causing its membership rolls to swell.

The claim comes as the State of California considers opening its doors to CPUSA members as employees. The Assembly recently approved a bill welcoming commies back into government. The measure, which would repeal part of a statute enacted during the Cold War, now goes to the Senate.

Meanwhile, Emile Schepers, International Secretary of the Communist Party USA, said “although the phantom of the McCarthy era still looms across the U.S., there is growing interest in communist ideas.”

Trump goes on offense,

May 12, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

President Trump went on the offensive yesterday against critics and conspiracy theorists who have been attacking him over his decision earlier this week to fire long-embattled FBI Director James Comey.

Trump fired Comey on Tuesday without warning, three-and-a-half years into his 10-year term, explaining in a letter that his employment was being terminated based on the recommendation of the Department of Justice. Both Republicans and Democrats have been furious with Comey in recent years because the unelected official inappropriately injected himself and the FBI into political matters.

As the firing of Comey sucked up all the media oxygen in America, Lester Holt of NBC News asked Trump in an interview about a meeting he had Monday with Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein who wrote a memo recommending Comey be retired from his post.

BYE BYE, COMEY

May 10, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

FrontPage Mag
President Trump abruptly fired embattled FBI Director James B. Comey Jr. late yesterday afternoon for exceeding his authority during the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email abuses.

The long-overdue termination of Comey, who inappropriately injected himself and the FBI into political matters, came three-and-a-half years into his 10-year term. It was based on the recommendation of the Department of Justice and was effective immediately.

Comey’s firing is a reaffirmation of the importance of the rule of law. He was more powerful than an FBI director ever should be. As commentator Brit Hume observed, “For better or worse, no FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover had taken so large a role in the political life of this country as James Comey.”

TEACHING RACISM IN K-12 CLASSROOMS

May 9, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

Front Page Mag
Teachers at Highlands Elementary, a school in Edina, Minnesota, are indoctrinating five-year-olds in order to radicalize them and encourage them to become activists obsessed with race.

Public school teachers across America already saturate students with information about racial injustice in America in a nonstop barrage of historic facts and ahistorical nonsense. And in the culture at large, the media, politicians, and the entertainment industry can’t stop talking about race. The last thing any young student in America needs is to be taught about is race. Race matters only to radicals.

Leftists believe you have to get ’em while they’re young and impressionable.
