  • Loomer Exposes Keith Ellison for Not Having Law License, MSM Ignores

    The mainstream press is ignoring a report from Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer about Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who is running for Minnesota Attorney General without a law license. “As your next attorney general, I will be a people’s lawyer who will hold those in power accountable when they step on your rights — whether that’s Monsanto telling you how to raise your crops, Navient cheating student loan borrowers out of more money, or the federal government infringing upon health care, a woman’s right to choose, or the human and civil rights of all,” Ellison wrote in The Minneapolis...

  • Fed Signals that a Full Recovery is Years Away(Time Machine and How wrong they were)

    New York Times ^ | 01/25/2012 | Binyamiin Applebaum
    The Fed said that it now planned to keep short-term interest rates near zero until late 2014, continuing the transformation of a policy that began as shock therapy in the winter of 2008 into a six-year campaign to increase spending by rewarding borrowers and punishing savers. The economy expanded “moderately” in recent weeks, the Fed said in a statement released after a two-day meeting of its policy-making committee, but jobs were still scarce, the housing sector remained deeply depressed and Europe’s flirtation with crisis could undermine the nascent domestic recovery. The Fed forecast growth of up to 2.7 percent this...

    Roanoke Times ^ | July 20, 2018 | Henry Gendreau
    Adrian Cronauer, a disc jockey, actor and Pentagon adviser whose story as a radio host during the Vietnam War inspired the 1987 film “Good Morning, Vietnam,” helping make its star Robin Williams a household name, died Wednesday in Troutville. He was 79. His death was confirmed by Jeff Hunt, a longtime Roanoke radio announcer who hired Cronauer at Roanoke FM station WPVR. He said Cronauer had been in a nursing home. “Goooooooood morning Vietnam,” was the signature sign-on Cronauer used hosting “Dawn Buster” from 1965-6 in Saigon. Williams’ portrayal of the fictional Cronauer cemented the line in American culture, associating...

    STUDENTS painted over Rudyard Kipling's poem 'If' claiming the Jungle Book author was racist. They replaced the wall mural with Still I Rise by Maya Angelou saying Kipling stood for the "opposite of liberation, empowerment and human rights". Sara Khan, Liberation and Access Officer at the University of Manchester Students Union, said on Facebook: "A failure to consult students during the process of adding art to the newly renovated SU building resulted in Rudyard Kipling's work being painted on the first floor last week. "We, as an exec team, believe that Kipling stands for the opposite of liberation, empowerment, and...

    The Hill ^ | 07/18/18 | JESUS RODRIGUEZ
    Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is urging voters in the general election to vote for Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) instead of Democratic nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset him in the party primary. "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to," Lieberman wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal. ADVERTISEMENT "Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems." Lieberman noted that...

    Former Texas U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, a three-time presidential candidate, has endorsed Murray Sabrin’s U.S. Senate candidacy. “I am pleased to endorse my good friend of 35 years Murray Sabrin for United States Senate,” said Paul. “Murray’s dedication to, and knowledge of, the principles of liberty will make him an effective advocate for freeing the people of New Jersey—and the nation–from excessive taxes, debt, and inflation, as well as ending the ongoing violations of our right to free speech, property, and privacy.” “Murray will also be an outspoken Senator for peaceful relations with other nations, and work to ensure that...

    Former West Virginia coal magnate Don Blankenship says he’s ready to get back into the West Virgnia senate race. Blankenship said he has collected the requisite number of petition signatures and will be filing with the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office in the next two weeks. Blankenship, who was defeated in the Republican May 8 primary by state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, accepted the Constitution Party nomination on May 22. “We have submitted more than the required petition signatures to the Secretary of State,” Blankenship said in an email on Friday. Collecting petition signatures is one of the obligatory...

    If we're going to be serious about treaty commitments, then we have to be serious about all treaty commitments -- the commitments where there's an actual invasion going on that legally requires US action, now, and not just those more-fun-to-chat-about hypothetical future invasions. Which are safer to discuss politically, of course, because no US troops are currently demanded for the cause. In the meantime, the unchastened neocons choose to selectively forget that the United States made security guarantees to Ukraine, promising to protect it in case of Russian invasion, and we have chosen to ignore those obligations. And I don't...
  • Crowdstrike Analyst Who Ran Forensics on DNC Server Used to Work For Mueller at FBI

    To this day, the DNC servers have not been forensically inspected by the FBI so we have no proof the servers were even hacked, and if hacked, by whom? Hillary’s fake Russia dossier and Crowdstrike’s report blaming Russia for hacking the DNC server is what the Special Counsel witch hunt hinges on. It’s all fake. The crime scene, the DNC servers, have yet to even be examined.

    Today’s dilemma, dear Readers, is whether to die laughing, or from the abject horror of these grammatic fauxs-pas: A dangling participle walks into a bar. Enjoying a cocktail and chatting with the bartender, the evening passes pleasantly. A bar was walked into by the passive voice. An oxymoron walked into a bar, and the silence was deafening. A malapropism walks into a bar, looking for all intensive purposes like a wolf in cheap clothing, muttering epitaphs and casting dispersions on his magnificent other, who takes him for granite. Hyperbole totally crashes into this insane bar and completely demolishes everything. A...

    Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. He’s about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed – all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named “Brett.” In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from...

    An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trump’s head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from his nose as well as his slashed neck. The image has the words ‘F*** TRUMP’ underneath it. The cartoon Trump is seen wearing a pin of a burning American flag on his lapel. The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that...

    t’s something people tell me all the time, and usually in hushed tones: “With a trillion planets out there, we really can’t be the only intelligent beings in the galaxy.” In other words, given the enormous amount of real estate in space, aliens are sure to exist. So why haven’t we found any? I don’t dispute this straightforward idea because, after all, it underpins the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). But not everyone agrees. A recent paper by three researchers at the University of Oxford is throwing shade on those who feel confident that the cosmos is thick with extraterrestrials....
