    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) If you listen to Rush Limbaugh – I personally do so 2-3 times a week, when my schedule permits – in today’s first hour you heard him give an update of what is going on with the case of General Mike Flynn. If you read the Campaign Update, you’d have read all about all of that stuff on Valentine’s day. Just sayin’. Ok, in fairness to Rush, there has been one important event in the case that took place since February 14: On Friday, February 16, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Man, the fake editors and fake journalists at the NYTimes had to have really, really hated to report the results of their own fake poll on Monday, showing as it does that, despite the fake news media’s feverishly coordinated effort with the Democrats to convince the American people that getting to keep a little bit more of their hard-earned money via Trump’s tax cuts was the end of the world and would kill us all, a majority of the public now supports the tax cut...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan enjoyed upward bumps in their greatness rankings, while President Donald Trump was ranked historically low, according to a presidential "greatness" survey released Monday. The 2018 Presidents and Executive Politics Presidential Greatness Survey, released Monday, was based on 170 usable responses from current and former members of the American Political Science Association's presidents and executive politics section. The survey asked the presidential experts to use a 0-100 scale "for overall greatness," with zero being failure, 50 being average and 100 being great. Roughly 57% of the respondents were Democrats, 13% were...

    One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day. A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Pretty much everyone knows who Jeff Foxworthy is. Well, anyone over the age of 25 does, anyway. For those who are unaware, Foxworthy is the southern comedian who is most famous for his “You might be a redneck” routine. Some of his funniest quotes include things like: - If you’ve ever had to climb a water tower with a can of paint to protect your sister’s honor, you might be a redneck; - If your wife has ever had to tell you “honey, come get this transmission out of the tub...

    Something needs to change,' says Milwaukee native who turned in rifle to authorities A Milwaukee native said enough is enough and turned his semi-automatic rifle into the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Ben Dickmann grew up in Milwaukee, but moved to south Florida years ago. He shared a Facebook post of a sheriff's deputy taking possession of his AR-FiveSeven, which is similar to the AR-15 that was used in the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Dickmann said only law enforcement should have guns that powerful. "Something needs to change, and it needs to change now," Dickmann said. "People have been...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) I watched it on YouTube so you don’t have to, and trust me, you don’t want to. – Fergie butchered the Star Spangled Banner before the NBA All Star game last night so badly that Roseanne Barr was standing and yelling “I’m not the worst anymore! I’m not the worst anymore!” Fergie, sounding for all the world like a lounge singer skit on Saturday Night Live, was so awful that several players could be seen openly mocking her. She was so bad that commentator Shaquille O’Neal looked at Charles Barkley afterwards and...

    Gun control advocates are only too sure that they occupy the moral high ground. In the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting that left 17 dead, they are accusing their opponents of having “blood on their hands.” It’s no longer just activists such as Chelsea Handler who are spewing such vitriol. Even mainstream liberals such as political scientist Norm Ornstein use the phrase.

    Gun control advocates often bank on scaring people into supporting their agenda. That’s how they’re fighting a “reciprocity” bill that requires concealed handgun permits to be honored in all 50 states — just like driver’s licenses. The scaremongering was on full display last Sunday, in CBS News’ “60 Minutes” lead segment by Steve Kroft on the dangers of concealed carry.

The scaremongering was on full display last Sunday, in CBS News’ “60 Minutes” lead segment by Steve Kroft on the dangers of concealed carry. It comes at a strange time considering Wednesday’s Florida high school attack, where 17 people died in a “gun-free” zone. For that matter, all mass public shootings in Florida have been in places where general citizens weren’t allowed to defend...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This past week saw the fake news media have what probably was its fakest week ever – which is saying an awful lot – and here a few of the highlights: The fake news media, lacking any other negative story on which to focus in order to avoid reporting on the massive, mushrooming scandal of corruption at DOJ and the FBI, spent the first several days of the week hammering the Rob Porter story. While Porter’s likely a wife-abusing turd who needed to be fired and needs to be punished, that hardly...

    For over three months there’s been an 800lb gorilla in the corner of the discussion desperately being avoided by an incurious corporate media. In the fall of 2017 Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson and Clinton-Steele Dossier author Christopher Steele were in frequent media stories. However, on December 2nd 2017 the first outline of previously invisible FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page hit the headlines. Pete and Lisa were soon joined by other previous DOJ/FBI invisibles like Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Jim Rybicki, James Baker and ‘he-who-shall-not-be-named’. Eventually the ripple effect expanded to include David Laufman (DOJ) and Mike...

    James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence said he believes there could be "other shoes to drop" in the Russia probe, which took a dramatic turn on Friday after new charges against multiple Russian nationals and entities were announced. "I think there are other shoes to drop here — notably finances," Clapper said during a CNN interview Friday night. "I think that's going to be another profound thing that's going to come out about this." "What were the financial relationships between the Trump Organization before the election and the Trump campaign," Clapper said. He clarified that he isn't personally...

    "The Associated Press is admitting that they were lied to by a white nationalist who claimed his group was connected to the school shooter in Parkland, Florida." "Jordan Jereb, a member of white nationalist group “Republic of Florida,” claimed on Wednesday that Nikolas Cruz, the shooter that killed 17 people at a Parkland high school, was a member of his group and participated in paramilitary drills with them. The Associated Press ran with Jereb’s claims, leading a number of outlets to publish blurbs of their report." "However, Jereb later backtracked on his claims and said he was “confused” because there...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is constantly hammered by "Gotcha!" questions from reporters in the briefing room. This was dramatically underlined when the story broke about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter being accused of domestic violence by two ex-wives, one of whom even brandished a picture with a black eye. By the time it was over, Sanders had one, too. It didn't look good, and nothing Sanders said from the lectern was going to be good enough. The same outlets that couldn't muster more than one question regarding former President Bill Clinton's alleged rape of Juanita...

The American Mirror captures the horror show that the rest of the fake news media refuses to report on. This is who Democrats want to replace Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House next year. Frightening. Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. Oh, wait…: With Mitt...

    Reflections on Jeff Sessions and our "Anglo-American" legal system… Among the first truisms we learn as children is the old saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Good advice, any way you look at it. Antique dealers, realtors, food critics, and a thousand other professions will attest to the fact that the contents are often either much better or much worse than a product’s first appearance. The newspaper business, however, was supposed to be an exception to this rule. Traditionally, a headline was a pull quote or summary statement about one of the key elements in an article, so...

    When will there be a serious discussion of the dangers of gun-free zones? When will the media point out in their discussions of the guns used or how the guns were obtained that another attack occurred in a gun-free zone? After listening to Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) push for more gun control on Shepard Smith’s show on Fox News this afternoon, we decided to put up this post. Video above of when Senator Nelson made very similar comments later on during Special Report shortly after 6 PM EST. Here is a listing of mass public shootings in Florida where at...
