Kanye meeting TERRIFIED left-wing media, the freakout is palpable--'an assault on our White House'
Yesterday, I posted a clip of a CNN panel in which Kanye West was described as a “token negro” and “what happens when negroes don’t read.” It was a grotesque display for which CNN has refused to apologize.


Phil Bredesen’s own staffers say their boss is lying to the ‘ignorant’ people of Tennessee

New O’Keefe sting: Phil Bredesen’s own staffers say their boss is lying to the ‘ignorant’ people of Tennessee
Well, well, well. Look who’s back. James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas outfit have released a new video.

This time, the subject is Will Stewart, a field organizer for Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen. You may know Bredesen better as “that guy Taylor Swift endorsed” and one of the only Democrat candidates who were willing to openly support the Kavanaugh confirmation.


Still-bitter Hillary: No civility until Democrats are in charge of everything

Still-bitter Hillary: No civility until Democrats are in charge of everything
Oh goody.  Look who’s back.

When we last saw Hillary Clinton, she was in India telling the world that the red parts of the 2016 electoral map were “backwards” areas, made up of racist, redneck, gun nuts who hated women and were afraid of the rest of the planet. It seems these places failed to vote for her, and thus they are not “optimistic, diverse, dynamic,” and forward thinking areas.

ICYMI: Lindsey Graham dares Chuck Schumer to name one acceptable judge from Trump’s list
Just before the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, when it was clear that the smear campaign had failed, Dems all but abandoned the phony charges of sexual assault. In the last couple of days before their efforts collapse, the narrative shifted to “temperament.”  As Cory Booker infamously stated, the charade was never really about Kavanaugh’s guilt or innocence. It was about the fact that he was seen as a judicial conservative.

Nikki Haley resigns as United Nations Ambassador
Whoa.  This was unexpected. President Trump has accepted Nikk Haley’s resignation from her position as United Nations Ambassador. There will be an official announcement shortly.

UPDATE: Haley will leave at the end of the year.  The reasons are still a mystery.


Taylor Swift endorses pro-Kavanaugh Dem – left goes wild

Taylor Swift endorses pro-Kavanaugh Dem – left goes wild
I apologize in advance, because I’m about to write a whole bunch of stupid stuff.

Personally, I don’t care what Taylor Swift thinks about politics. I can’t imagine why anyone, who’s not a 12-year-old girl, would. Certainly, I’m baffled by the fact that her infantile pop has adult fans who are excited to learn about her political leanings – but it does.


Alyssa Milano appears on Meet The Press, says #MeToo is ‘defining what due process looks like’

Alyssa Milano appears on Meet The Press, says #MeToo is 'defining what due process looks like
As I said over on Twitter this weekend: The fact that Chuck Todd and the Meet the Press producers even thought to take Alyssa Milano seriously, then interviewed her, and then actually aired the interview is pretty much everything wrong with modern journalism.  The fact that the host gave barely any push back to one of the most ridiculous claims I’ve ever seen made on an alleged “news show” represents everything wrong with Chuck Todd.

But…that’s what happened.


Ex-FBI agent who pressured Ford witness tied to Bharara, also connected to polygraph coaching

Ex-FBI agent who pressured Ford witness tied to Bharara, also connected to polygraph coaching
Earlier today, Dan discussed Leland Ingham Keyser.  She’s the “lifelong friend” of Christine Blasey Ford – the woman Ford listed as a witness but who has, repeatedly, refused to corroborate Ford’s claims. Ford claims that Keyser was the only other woman present at the time of her alleged assault, and Keyser says she has no memory of the either the attack or the party where it supposedly took place.

In a truly Orwellian moment, Ford dismissed her refusal to back the charges as symptom of nebulous, unspecified, “health” issues. As she said at the time, “Leland has significant health challenges, and I’m happy that she’s focusing on herself and getting the health treatment that she needs.”

Flake, Collins, Manchin have seen the writing on the wall…Kavanaugh getting the thumbs up?
If you’re conservative, when someone uses the phrase “The Usual Suspects,” you don’t think of the excellent 90’s movie featuring and directed by accused Hollywood sex offenders. You think of “Republican” Senators like Jeff Flake and Susan Collins. They’ve basically built political empires on the idea that being a royal pain in the rear is a quick path to temporary power.


Grassley: ‘No hint of misconduct’ in FBI’s Kavanaugh report

Grassley: ‘No hint of misconduct’ in FBI’s Kavanaugh report
For two straight years, Democrats told us that the FBI should not be questioned.  The agency is composed only of fine, upstanding, agents whose moral and ethical standards are unassailable.  Of course, that’s only when you’re talking about the Russia probe, or James Comey’s decision not to charge Hillary after outlining her many crimes. When it comes to other FBI matters, the left isn’t so fond of the bureau.


Cory Booker: It doesn’t matter if Kavanaugh is innocent or guilty…there are ‘questions’

Cory Booker: It doesn’t matter if Kavanaugh is innocent or guilty . . . there are ‘questions’
If you’ve been watching the news for the last two days, you’ve seen something become painfully clear.  Democrats and their press allies know that the FBI’s newest Kavanaugh investigation isn’t going their way, and the narrative has – once again – shifted.


Having successfully defeated Trump, celebrities ‘joining forces’ to stop Kavanaugh

Having successfully defeated Trump, celebrities ‘joining forces’ to stop Kavanaugh
If there’s one thing we learned from the 2016 election, it’s that Hollywood does not have its finger on the pulse of middle America.  Entertainers decided that it was their job as super-important famous people to tell you what you think, and to make sure you voted the way they wanted you to vote. They funneled millions of dollars into a whole host of videos, demonstrations, print ads, and ‘get out the vote’ efforts – all of which failed in spectacular fashion.


Sen. Mazie Hirono (D): We need the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh’s ice throwing

Oct 3, 2018 — Robert Laurie

As you may have heard, a new horror story has emerged from Brett Kavanaugh’s past.  It’s a tale so harrowing – so absolutely beyond the pale – that Democrats are simply beside themselves with angst and hand-wringing. There are simply not enough hours in the day to clutch all the pearls that need to be clutched.


Avenatti’s ‘3rd accuser’ gives disastrous interview—‘I cannot specifically say’ it was Kavanaugh

Avenatti’s ‘3rd accuser’ gives disastrous interview
Ever since creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti announced that he’d managed to dig up a third Kavanaugh accuser, people were understandably skeptical. Initially, there were sketchy reports about Julie Swetnick’s willingness to come forward. Then we learned her boyfriend had accused her of domestic violence and that she’d been involved in no less than six eyebrow-raising lawsuits over the last 25 years. Brett Kavanaugh referred to her claims as a “farce” and most sane people, even many on the left, seemed to agree.


CNN worried about Kanye’s health because he doesn’t hate Trump like they’ve decide

Oct 1, 2018 — Robert Laurie

Thanks for proving Kanye’s point, CNN.  Well done
Over the weekend, Kanye West appeared on Saturday Night Live. I haven’t watched SNL since they abandoned the idea of being a comedy show in favor of being a left-wing propaganda machine so, no, I didn’t see it live.  However, you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting the clips that appeared on Youtube.

At the end of the show, Kanye appeared in his MAGA hat, and launched into a blistering anti-Democrat tirade.


Rachel Mitchell finds: ‘he said she said’ cases are tough to prove. ‘This case is even weaker’

Rachel Mitchell finds: 'he said she said' cases are tough to prove. 'This case is even weaker'
Last week, when sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell was questioning Christine Blasey Ford, she took a little flak from the right.  There wasn’t a lot of it, but she did get dinged by a few writers who thought she was a bit of a milquetoast.  Her questions, they argued, weren’t tough enough.

I disagreed.  I thought she was doing exactly what she was supposed to be doing. She wasn’t there to be combative, or to tear into Ford’s barely coherent story, she was there to get the details of the charges directly from the accuser.  Nothing more.


Liberal brain trust: How Dare Brett Kavanaugh get so angry about these baseless rape accusations!

Liberal brain trust: How Dare Brett Kavanaugh get so angry about these baseless rape accusations!
I would imagine that, if you’re an innocent man accused of running a gang-rape ring, you’d be a little peeved. If the people accusing you dragged you onto national television and demanded that you beg to be the subject of an FBI investigation, you’d more than likely get angry.  If those same people ignored the fact that there’s not a shred of evidence that you’d ever done anything wrong and proceeded to destroy your name, your family, and your career in the most egregious act of character assassination the country has ever seen …well, you’d be goddamn furious.


No, idiot liberals, Kavanaugh should NOT call for an FBI investigation

Sep 28, 2018 — Robert Laurie

Throughout yesterday’s hearing, the shameless hack Democrats on the Judiciary Committee pressured Brett Kavanaugh to demand an FBI inquiry that would dig into his own past. Over, and over, and over again they asked him: “Will you call for an FBI investigation?”

In case you need a refresher, here’s a clip of Dick Durbin badgering the nominee:

Jake Tapper: Hey, y’know, there’s no evidence that any of these Kavanaugh charges are true
Yesterday, just for the heck of it, I watched the Kavanaugh hearings on CNN. Why, I don’t know. Maybe I thought such a penance would shave a few years off my time in purgatory. Regardless, if you watched it as I did, you were treated to a disgusting display of bias and a series of almost gleeful panels that eagerly lapped up and described the testimony offered by Christine Blasey Ford.  It was, in a word, vulgar.
