    First, take a deep breath. Now take a look at the Wall Street Journal. The otherwise fine newspaper editorially on Saturday blasted President Trump. For what? For not killing Iranians and blowing up Iranian targets to show how super our American power is. The president acted humanely and rationally, weighing proportionality in response to Iran’s downing of our spy drone over international waters (we say) or Iranian waters (they say). The WSJ, of course, is an authority on the subject of territoriality and sovereignty and the respect thereof. The newspaper for years insisted that the United States should have no...
  • AOC: Liz Cheney Was Real Misuser of Holocaust Imagery this Whole Time

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed it was Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) — not herself — who appropriated vernacular associated with the Holocaust in her criticism of the self-avowed Democratic socialist’s comparison of U.S. border facilities to concentration camps. “Reminder: the member who directly + explicitly compared concentration camps on our border to the Holocaust was *Liz Cheney.* The horrors of the Holocaust went beyond the use of concentration camps, yet camps were part of the process,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “They have also been used before and after,” she added. Ocasio-Cortez has garnered a flurry of criticism since referring to...

    NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox and NBC on Sunday ignored new claims by a 76-year-old woman who says Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago. But CNN jumped on the story on Monday, sitting down for a lengthy interview with the new accuser. Carroll made the allegations for the first time in a New York magazine article, in which she said she has been sexually assaulted numerous times by, as she says, a “cavalcade of 21 assholes."
  • [Anderson] Cooper cuts to commercial after [Trump Accuser] E. Jean Carroll calls rape 'sexy'

    Anderson Cooper abruptly cut to commercial during an interview with columnist E. Jean Carroll after she claimed most people find rape "sexy." "I think most people think of rape as being sexy," Carroll said in an interview Monday with CNN's Anderson Cooper, during a discussion of her rape allegation against President Trump. "They think of the fantasies." Cooper quickly cut in and said they would take a quick break. "You're fascinating to talk to," Carroll quipped.

    President Trump on Monday said he doesn't believe the federal government will pursue reparations for descendants of slaves, an idea that has gained traction among some Democrats. "I don’t see it happening," Trump said in an exclusive interview with The Hill. The House Judiciary Committee held the first hearing on the issue in a decade earlier this month, and a handful of Democratic presidential candidates seeking to challenge Trump in 2020 have broached the idea. "I think it’s a very unusual thing," Trump said of the possibility of reparations. "You have a lot of — it’s been a very interesting...

    Despite the fact that politicians like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have made it a point to call out the top 0.1%, not everyone agrees with their philosophies. Billionaire Mark Cuban implied that had they been as successful as him, they might not have as much to say about the ultra-wealthy. He remarked that AOC’s criticism of capitalism is “headline porn” and noted the fact she started a business, a now-defunct publisher called Brook Avenue Press. “Bernie Sanders has a book business, you know, Elizabeth Warren...

    It’s official: A Woodstock 50th anniversary concert is coming to the original site of the 1969 music festival in Upstate New York next year. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts confirmed Thursday that it will host a three-day event on August 16-18, 2019, titled “Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival.” The “pan-generational music, culture, and community event” will celebrate the golden anniversary of the original Woodstock concert with a series of concerts, “TED-style talks,” and a “We Are Golden” history exhibit at the Museum at Bethel Woods. "Fifty years ago, people gathered peacefully on our site inspired to change...

    In the seconds immediately after The Who concluded "Pinball Wizard", from Tommy, Hoffman, who had ingested LSD after working the past few hours at the medical tent, abruptly walked onto the stage and began addressing the crowd from Pete Townshend's microphone. He shouted, "I think this is a pile of sh**! ... While John Sinclair rots in prison ..." Alerted to the disturbance, Townshend (who apparently had been too distracted to notice Hoffman ambling onto the platform), snarled at Hoffman, "F*** off! F*** off my f***ing stage!" He then struck Hoffman with his guitar (which you can hear in the...

    The Vermont Standard ^ | January 31, 2019
    Global warming is now real. Woodstock voters will decide on Town Meeting Day to tell the state to take action. One of the articles on the Town Meeting warning is a non-binding resolution asking the state of Vermont to take greater action in curbing the threat of global warming. The Select Board approved the Town Meeting warrant on Jan. 15. The article identifies extreme and erratic temperatures, severe storms, a rise in tick-borne diseases, and threats to farmers and maple sugar makers is a result of global warming. It acknowledges the state’s comprehensive energy plan but also claims the state...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 6/23/19 | J. D. Heyes
    It’s been another momentous week for anti-American Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York ‘Democratic Socialist.’ She began the week insulting the memories of Jewish Americans and their loved ones who suffered mightily at the hands of the barbarous Nazi regime that, under Hitler’s orders, attempted to exterminate an entire race from the face the earth. Known as “The Holocaust,” Nazi Germany killed more than 6 million Jews during World War II, most by gassing them to death but also via exhaustion, deprivation, and starvation in concentration camps.

    The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum released a statement Monday rejecting comparisons between migrant detention centers in the United States and the events that took place in the early 20th century. “The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other event, whether historical or contemporary,” the Museum stated. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.” The Museum continued: “[A] statement ascribed to a Museum staff historian regarding recent attempts to analogize the situation on...

    National Review ^ | June 11, 2019 | Alexandra Desanctis
    In an interview with the Des Moines Register, New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand suggested that opposition to abortion is akin to racism. Gillibrand, who continues to linger near the very bottom of the pack of Democrats running for the 2020 presidential nomination, has stated that she plans to impose a litmus test on all of her judicial nominees, should she be elected. When asked whether that choice would threaten judicial independence, here’s how Gillibrand replied: I think there’s some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable. Imagine...
  • Shameless Kirsten Gillibrand embarrasses herself pandering at an Iowa gay bar

    Unfortunately for the junior senator from New York, it takes more brains than she possesses to pull off unprincipled political pandering. Over the course of her political career, Kirsten Gillibrand has demonstrated a willingness to embrace any policy or group that she thinks will work to her advantage. When she represented a rural-ish upstate New York congressional district, she was all for the Second Amendment, but when elevated to the Senate (to replace Hillary Clinton), her principles reversed themselves.

    The Democrats have given us so many cringe-worthy moments during this campaign season, but if you ask us, Kirsten Gillibrand and Eric Swalwell, both members of the 0 percent club, are in a race to run the most embarrassing campaign. Swalwell, who is a white man and apologizes sincerely for it, showed off his tender side by shooting a campaign video while changing a diaper, but now we have Gillibrand “dancing” in a gay bar while modeling some LGBT wear from her campaign store. Yes, she’s sticking with that stupid “Brave” campaign theme.

    U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday proposed requiring insurance companies to cover expensive fertility treatments, part of a “Family Bill of Rights” that would also help with adoption and medical care. Gillibrand, a U.S. senator from New York, has struggled to gain traction in the crowded field of more than 20 Democratic presidential candidates vying to challenge President Donald Trump. She recently became one of the most vocal candidates calling for access to abortion and criticizing laws like those passed in Alabama that would virtually ban on the practice. “My new proposal, the Family Bill of Rights, will...

    President Trump on Monday night spoke about political elites and illegal immigration -- two themes he hits quite often. Two themes that help define the presidential race now in progress. Kirsten Gillibrand is in that race and is not just a candidate, but really a living metaphor. Gillibrand is someone who has lived a remarkably fortunate life. Until about 10 years ago, she was a member of Congress. Virtually nobody outside the mostly rural 20th congressional district in upstate New York had ever heard of her. She was considered a thoroughly average member of Congress, maybe a little below average....

Over sex weeks this spring, prosecutors in Federal District Court in Brooklyn had rolled out a damning case against Keith Raniere, the co-founder of Nxivm. ...

    There’s 934.5 million for processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, etc. $866 million would go to “reduce reliance on influx shelters to house children.” Another $200 million is allocated to develop an “integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program for families.” You’re probably getting the idea. There’s another serious poison pill in the package as well. One provision would, “require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will...

    I thought it was satire, something cooked up by his political enemies. You couldn't put out a less attractive video than the one Gavin Newsom did for illegal aliens on Twitter, advising them himself on how to obstruct ICE from any deportation maneuvers.  And sure enough, he wasn't hacked — it really was blue-checked he. Leave aside the fact that he's the governor of a U.S. state, supposedly there to represent the interests of that state's citizens rather than those of the foreigners who come here without papers, quite illegally, and run up the tab using his state's services.  They're his constituents, too, now, in fact,...

    Leftists, particularly in Bill De Blasio's New York, are always trying to shove people into public transportation. Never mind that the subways are full of robbers, gropers, stinkers, and pushers, never mind that the public buses are horrible to ride, crowded, jerky, slow, complete with atrocious customer service. (An exception, of course, is made for illegals, with drivers licenses now being issued to that crowd, the better to get their votes). But everyone else is expected to ride the bus.  And sure enough, bus conditions are pretty horrible even as New York's bus service is now losing money. The problem? A...
