    Two political scientists specializing in how democracies decay and die have compiled four warning signs to determine if a political leader is a dangerous authoritarian. The leader shows only a weak commitment to democratic rules.He or she denies the legitimacy of opponents.He or she tolerates violence.He or she shows some willingness to curb civil liberties or the media. “A politician who meets even one of these criteria is cause for concern,” Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, both professors at Harvard, write in their important new book.“With the exception of Richard Nixon, no major-party presidential candidate met even one of these...

    A new book on the media’s relationship with the Trump White House has revealed a FBI operation to specifically set up a senior member of the Trump administration in a move that eventually led to the original claims of obstruction of justice against the president.According to the book, “Media Madness,” by Howard Kurtz, then deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe called White House chief of staff Reince Priebus shortly after the release of a fake news report in the New York Times to ask to speak to him privately, telling him that “everything” in the article was “bullsh*t” and not to...

    RUSH: Trump has been busy tweeting. Last night just before midnight, Trump, “I authorized zero access to the White House. I actually turned down this author many times. I never spoke with him for the book. It’s full of lies, misrepresentations, and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve.” So Bannon has now earned a Trumpian nickname. When that happens to you, that’s not good. I mean, Crooked Hillary will always now forever be known as Crooked Hillary. To a certain extent, Lyin’ Ted. I mean, he’s always gonna...
  • Trump book author Michael Wolff made a damaging admission on the ‘Today’ show

    Author Michael Wolff bolstered President Trump's effort to discredit the new book “Fire and Fury” on Friday when he acknowledged in a “Today” show interview that he had been willing to say whatever was “necessary” to gain access at the White House. Wolff's admission does not directly undermine the veracity of his reporting, but it creates the appearance that he might have approached some members of the president's team under false pretenses, leading sources to believe that when they opened up they were speaking to a sympathetic ear. That's a bad look — one which the White House can use...

    1) Good Christmas present for smart people. Somewhat complex sophistries are explained in simple terms. It’s fun knowing how this stuff works. 2) This book is a guidebook to what’s really going on in our public schools. Weird, unproven theories and methods are commonplace, such as Sight-words to teach reading, Constructivism to teach knowledge, Common Core Math to teach arithmetic, and so on. Once you understand these gimmicks, then you can fight back more successfully against the school system. 3) A group, whether 2 people or 20 people, can use this book to initiate and focus discussions. You can pick...

    The following is an excerpt from Let Trump Be Trump by Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, to be published on December 3. We were somewhere over New Jersey, on our way to an event in Delaware, on the Trump helicopter when all hell broke loose. On board were Mr. Trump, the campaign’s press secretary Hope Hicks, security chief Keith Schiller, one Secret Service agent and me. Paul Manafort had been part of the campaign for a few weeks, his job to secure enough delegates to push Trump over the top at the Republican National Convention. When the boss originally asked...

    A children’s book titled “P is for Palestine” is infuriating some New York Jewish mothers — who charge that it’s nothing but anti-Semitic propaganda disguised as a kids’ alphabet book. “Omg. Crazy. I’m livid at this,’’ one woman wrote on Facebook. “I can’t believe it’s real and in NYC!” Another post reads, “You have gall advertising your incredibly politically insensitive book on this site. “You must have known you would be igniting a political firestorm by posting that in the hopes of drumming up sales for your ridiculous book . . .It’s disgraceful.’’ And still another Facebook user wrote, “A...

    Juanita Broaddrick is coming out with a new book detailing her rape allegations against former President Bill Clinton. "The time has come for me to talk about my life and abuse in full," Broaddrick wrote on Twitter. "I am working on a book with [journalist Nick Lulli] to set the record straight on what Bill Clinton did to me." The book’s title, "You'd Better Put Some Ice On That," is a reference to what Broaddrick says Clinton told her after he allegedly raped her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978. The book's subtitle: "How I survived being raped by...

    Stand by for more Joe Biden than you knew you wanted. Two months’ worth.The aging VP, who turns 75 this month, begins his book tour today. I said, HE’S STARTING A BOOK TOUR TODAY! So, you’ll see and hear the loquacious retiree on the TV and radio shows of all the usual sympathetic suspects. Everyone will ask him about running for president in 2020. That’s the plan.Biden likes people talking about him running for president. He ran twice, quite unsuccessfully, as you may recall. One time he had a plagiarism problem. Then came 2008.Barack Obama, who had much more ambition...

Harvard “symbology” professor Robert Langdon, the protagonist of “The Da Vinci Code”, a work of fiction that questioned the history of Christianity, is back in Brown’s newly published novel, ‘Origin’, this time pushing the meme: “Our need for that exterior god, that sits up there and judges us ... will diminish and eventually disappear.”

    The Hillary Clinton tome, "What Happened?" is falling out of favor dropping to #11 on the Amazon BestSeller list this morning. Sad...her book is a flop, as expected. I hope Amazon keeps pushing it more and more with "unending" glowing reviews. Her personal performance at her "book signings & interviews is pathetic at best, sickening at worst. However, the "Clintonite" morons in the Democrat Party keep following and worship her with adoring reception and acceptance. I say keep at it...ladies. Every time she opens her pie hole she sinks the Democrat Party deeper into political oblivion. This, my friends, is...

In 'The Way it Was', due to be released on October 24, Elie Weisman, who managed the Chairman of the Board from 1975 to 1998, recounted the incident, which occurred 1990.

    Well.....ho-hum, the much media promoted Hillary Clinton tome has run out-of-steam a tiny bit more then a week from its release date. There is not much to say or comment on, other then to take note of all the fools that actually spent their money on "something of no substance whatsoever". At the end of the day the free market rules and, all the bulk buying and positive ranting have done zilch to sell the failed book of failed Hillary Clinton. All Ms. Clinton really needed to do was to look in the mirror and she would have discovered her...

    This week, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton released her new book, “What Happened,” which chiefly serves to assign blame to the myriad politicians, journalists, organizations, countries, prejudices, and technologies she claims caused her defeat. Gun rights supporters will be happy to know that NRA is featured prominently.In addition to apportioning NRA its well-deserved share of the blame, Clinton seeks to rewrite her own history on the gun issue and urges her fellow Democrats to ignore political reality and continue to champion gun control.NRA’s Power Clinton repeatedly acknowledges NRA’s influence on the 2016 election and the broad political landscape.Pointing out the...
