WHAT! Kellyanne Conway kneeling on the Oval Office couch with her shoes on as she text and take pictures of Trump and leaders of black colleges and universities. Hey Kellyanne, don’t get too comfy with your boss and his guests. That’s a big no-no! Manners girl!
Karma hits Hollywood on their most prestigious night. Oscars was meant to embarrass Trump – a black-tie event version of Saturday Night Live- but then it backfired. Their fake Best Picture winner turned the Hollywood elitists into a laughingstock and there’s no compassion from the American people because the arrogant snobs deserve to be laughed at.
Trump told Breitbart News in the exclusive interview that the Oscar fail may have been avoided had Hollywood’s finest focused less on attacking him and more on getting the event’s details right.
“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” President Trump said. “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.” – Oscars ‘focused so hard on politics’ They Couldn’t Pull Off Basics of Ceremony byMatthew Boyle
Oscars disastrous night started when a stage prop crashed down during rehearsals, then two teenage girls were arrested outside Dolby Theater for hitting a Trump supporter protesting against Hollywood hypocrites, then the Best Picture fiasco calling ‘La la land’ as winner instead of ‘Moonlight,’ then today Nielsen reporting disastrous ratings for the Academy. Are the Russians responsible for the terrible events at the Oscars? What do you think Democrats?
According to Nielsen, the early numbers indicate that the Oscars gained a 21.4 rating amongst metered market households. 34 million people were estimated to have watched the awards show in 2016 with a rating of 23.4, meaning this year’s ratings are 9 percent lower. – Hollywood Reporter
So did the Russians hack the Oscars? Should there be an investigation in the House? Something so ridiculous, so unacceptable, so un-Hollywood-like.
Hollywood could not have scripted a more ironic ending. After lecturing us all night on who should be president, after telling us all night how to run the country, after lecturing their number one fan base, middle America, which is where the vast majority of people are, after impugning them, making fun of them and laughing at ’em by making fun of the things they believe, these geniuses couldn’t even get their big moment done right, and that’s the award for the best movie of the year.
I wonder, will there be any recounts? Will any heads roll at Pricewaterhouse whatever the new name of that firm is? I mean, you had a Latino woman and an Irish male representing — well, this is how the left looks at things. They look at gender. They look at ethnicity to make sure that you’re covering all your politically correct bases. At any rate, ratings were down. And here’s what supposedly happened.
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are out there, and it’s their job to announce the winner of the Best Picture. And Warren Beatty had the envelope that announced Emma Stone as Best Actress. Now, nobody knows why that happened yet. At least if they do I haven’t run into it. So Warren Beatty goes out there with an incorrect ballot, and so he opens the ballot, and he doesn’t know what to do with it.
PERFECT! Confident Don eats his steak well done and with ketchup. He could care less about chefs and their elitist rule you should eat your steak rare ( bloody libs! ) or should add to it nothing but au jus ( I add lemon to my au jus ). Confident Don doesn’t care about elitist rules. He follows his taste buds happiness, not what elite high society dictates.
( Milo ) A number of liberal news outlets have dug up some true dirt on President Donald Trump – dirt that just might sink him, if the veracity of their reports are to be believed.
According to Jezebel, The Don ordered his steak well done with ketchup on Saturday evening – apparently a sign of his very alarming and unpresidential preference.
This news – obtained by the Independent Journal Review through an undercover operation – is so alarming, in fact, that hard-hitting journalism outfit The Huffington Post picked up the story as well, describing the President’s choice as “disappointing.”
“We’ve long known that Trump likes his steak well done,” reads the piece, “which according to experts in the food world is simply the wrong way to order meat. But eating it with ketchup just adds insult to injury.”
It’s not just news outlets ringing the alarm bell at what just might be Trump’s most daring move yet; Twitter has exploded with reaction and criticism as well.
A 27-year-old Chinese mother publicly kicks her baby girl very hard because she won’t stop crying. She is said to be from central China’s Hubei. In the short footage, she is heard yelling ‘Still crying?’ to her baby girl.
“Ivanka is elegant, but at the same time casual,” Alexa told HELLO!’s sister brand hola.com. “She does her own day-to-day makeup and hair”
( Hello ) As she lives her life in the public eye, businesswoman Ivanka Trump pretty much always looks polished and picture perfect. Behind her flawless appearance is makeup artist Alexa Rodulfo, who has worked with President Trump‘s daughter for more than a decade.
When it comes to looking good, Alexa revealed that Ivanka already has the healthy habits one needs for a great canvas to start with. “Ivanka is someone who eats nutritious foods, exercises regularly, doesn’t smoke and protects her skin,” she said. “That’s a really important factor when it comes to her skin looking perfect.”
….But now that Ivanka has swapped the Big Apple for Washington, D.C. can we expect her to change her look? “I don’t think so,” opined Alexa. “Ivanka really is a woman who is elegant, yet at the same time casual. She does her own day-to-day makeup and hair.” The makeup artist was, of course, behind Ivanka’s inauguration weekend style in January. “I’ve been fortunate to accompany and work with Ivanka during important moments of her life,” she reflected. “Every look in its moment has been special, and that one was, too.”
Ivanka and Jared Kushner glam up for Sunday night Governors Ball at the White House after spending the afternoon with their kids watching Monster Jam motorsports event at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore.
Ivanka Trump stunned in black alongside her husband Jared Kushner at the White House Governor’s Ball, just hours after they enjoyed a day out watching monster trucks.
The first daughter was seen wearing a sleeveless black/blue gown, possibly a $4,295 J Mendel dress, as her husband wore a black suit and tie.
( Daily Mail ) There was disaster at the Oscars on Sunday night when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wrongly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture, rather than the triumphant Moonlight.
In a heart-stopping moment, the stars and producers of La La Land were stopped midway through their acceptance speeches and forced to hand their trophies to the stars of Moonlight.
The terrible end to an otherwise triumphant show left the audience gasping in horror as Beatty revealed he had incorrectly read ‘La La Land’ as the winner.
Beatty blamed the epic mishap on being given the wrong envelope, saying he had seen the name Emma Stone from ‘La La Land’ when he opened his envelope.
‘I want to tell you what happened I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny. This is Moonlight for best picture,’ Beatty told the shocked crowd as he explained the blunder
Tired of your color? Fake black Rachel Dolezal has a solution – it’s called trans race. According to Dolezal, ‘race is a social construct’ and not coded in your DNA, therefore needs label: “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”
( Heat Street ) Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who falsely claimed she’s black and still believes she did nothing wrong, is living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month.
“I’m not going to stop and apologize and grovel and feel bad about it,” she said in an interview with the Guardian. “I would just be going back to when I was little, and had to be what everybody else told me I should be—to make them happy.”
Dolezal, who also used to be a professor, is currently struggling to find a job and is missing her rent payments. According to her, she applied for well over 100 jobs, but has received no offers, even from a supermarket. The only offers she received were in porn and reality TV. Her friend helped to pay the February rent, but it’s unlikely she’ll make the payment for the next month.
“I do think a more complex label would be helpful, but we don’t really have that vocabulary,” said the former Africana studies professor. “I feel like the idea of being trans-black would be much more accurate than ‘I’m white.’ Because you know, I’m not white.”
The “trans-black” woman made headlines in 2015 after her parents revealed she wasn’t actually black. She stepped down from her positions following the scandal and admitted she was “biologically born white to white parents” but insisted that race isn’t “coded in your DNA.”
“It wasn’t like the honest thing to do is say, ‘I’m white’, because race is a social construct,” said Dolezal to the paper. “And this gave me this great sense of internal freedom: I wasn’t actually all fucked up. I was actually on to something this whole time.”
To pretend being black, Dolezal regularly sunbathed, used traditionally black hairstyles, claimed her ethnicity as “black” on employment and medical documents, and responded to questions about her ethnicity with “mixed,” adding that her mother was white.
( IJR ) The president was heading to his new flagship property in D.C., the Trump Hotel, for a private dinner at the BLT Steakhouse inside. Once the president arrived at the location, the reporter who was on assignment to cover him, Jordan Fabian of The Hill, was not let into the building and had to wait in the van outside for the remainder of the dinner, without a guest list or details of what was happening inside.
Inside the restaurant, I was seated at a table which I had booked hours earlier, directly next to where Trump would be dining. I made the booking based on a tip from a trusted source. I was ready to tell the story no one else would get to see and was personally fascinated to observe how a restaurant prepares for a president — and how Trump interacts when he believes no press are present.
The night was a wild one. Here is what happens when President Trump goes to dinner.
8:17 PM: Without any announcement or indication, President Trump enters the hotel lobby which bears his name, flanked on all sides by the Secret Service. Shock and astonishment fill the guests in the room. The woman next to me screams “Is it him? It’s really him! Oh my God! This is like a dream!” Trump is rushed by fans in the lobby as he makes his way to the steakhouse. Secret Service makes a barrier for him, and the President waves and shakes hands on his way. The young crew are the first in line. Also waiting in line as the President arrives is Nigel Farage.
One woman shouts at him “Donald, it’s my birthday!” Trump stops and says “Happy birthday,” as he hugs the elated woman. “How about a birthday present? Let’s take a photo,” he says to her, afterward telling the woman she looks very young and has great skin.
Trump eventually sits precisely where I expected he would hours earlier. He is joined by Farage, Governor Rick Scott of Florida, and his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. My party sits just a table away, outside the president’s security barrier. Trump’s table is surrounded by agents facing outward, creating a barrier between the president and other diners. Waiters can be seen carrying large jumbo shrimp and sparkling water to the table to start the service. We are eventually, but politely, asked to sit back down at our respective tables.
8:45 PM: Trump is served his entree. According to a waiter, who wished to remain anonymous:
“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ”They are filming ‘Saturday Night Live’ right now. Can’t wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.“ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.”
A video has emerged of a fight that broke out in the dining room of a United States McDonald’s.
The footage starts out showing three people hitting each other in the back of the restaurant, two women wearing black and pink, and a man in a gray sweatshirt.
The fight moves across the restaurant and other people join in, some throwing punches and others attempting to pull the individuals who are fighting apart from one another.
The young woman in pink begins picking up chairs, and the woman in black seems to attempt to tackle the young man in the gray sweatshirt. All the while people are yelling expletives and the scene becomes increasingly chaotic.
The brawl seems to emerge between the young man and the two girls, who appear to be sisters. At one point a McDonald’s manager seems to attempt to intervene, but has little success.
Towards the end of the video, someone yells ‘why has nobody called the police,’ and people are finally able to grab hold of all three individuals who initially started the fight and forcibly separate them.
( Daily Mail ) President Donald Trump was spotted proposing a toast at the Governors’ Dinner during Melania Trump’s first big hosting gig.
He toasted the nation’s governors at the White House, joking with them ‘it’s such an easy job.’
Tonight, the White House is throwing the annual dinner and ball. The theme of the dinner is ‘Spring’s Renewal,’ the White House announced, adding that the executive mansion has ‘come to life, gleaming with the dazzling, senorial experience of eternal spring.’
First Daughter Ivanka Trump was spotted at the event in a chic black dress.
Lamenting the use of the word “pussy” to describe weakness, he said:
Have you ever come across a pussy? You realize vaginas can start revolutions and end wars. You realize, even on a physical level, the vagina is one of the strongest things that have ever existed. Virtually indestructible. The vagina is frighteningly powerful. You realize that human beings come out of a vagina.
Human beings come out and still it continues to work as intended. Do you understand how impressive that is? A human being comes out of the vagina. And still, it continues to operate, it continues to work, after a human has just come out.
You’re saying it’s weak? You just sit on a penis wrong and it breaks. ‘Don’t be a penis,’ that should be the phrase.
I wish I was a pussy.
Trevor’s comments were quickly picked up by social media users around the web, some of whom praised him.
BUSTED! Ryan Clayton, Huffington Post writer, stages worst Russian-Trump fake news at CPAC. The desperate for fake news writer was kicked out of CPAC after caught handing out to attendees Russian flags with ‘Trump’ written on them. The pathetic writer is a leftist who is a part of Bob Creamer’s group ‘Americans Taking Action’. Bob Creamer is a provocateur who was busted by James O’Keefe Project Veritas in a series of undercover videos. Creamer used ‘bird dogging’ to incite violence at Donald Trump’s rallies.
INSIDE OBAMACARE REPLACEMENT BILL: NO MANDATE, NO PENALTY, COVERS PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS, TAX CREDITS BASED ON AGE, END ABORTION FUNDING
( Daily Caller ) A 105-page draft of the reconciliation bill, which will repeal and partially replace Obamacare, was leaked to the press Friday, showing Republicans plan to scale back Medicaid and eliminate penalties attached to the individual and employer mandates.
The discussion draft, leaked to Politico, calls for tax credits for individuals based on age, ranging between $2,000 and $4,000 — a shift from the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which bases subsidies on income.
States that opted to expand Medicaid during the Obama administration would gradually have the additional federal funds phased out until 2020. States would instead be provided a per capita cap, which would allocate money based on the number of those enrolled. Proponents argue it provides states with more flexibility while bringing down costs.
The bill aims to stabilize premiums while covering individuals with preexisting conditions by providing “State Innovation Grants.” The grants would provide states a total of $100 billion — $15 billion in 2018 and 2019 and $10 billion through 2026 — to deal with a broad number of issues.
While the mandate is being eliminated, the proposal grants insurers the ability to increase premiums by 30 percent if there is an extended lapse in coverage.
The bill would completely eliminate federal funding for abortion providers — a huge win for pro-life lawmakers.
Under Obamacare, premiums were capped at three times the cost of coverage for younger individuals; that would be upped five times under the new proposal.
Previously, those in individual health plans before Obamacare would eventually have to switch from their old plans onto a new exchange plan. The proposal includes language allowing insurers to offer grandfathered plans to permit people to keep their current plans.
She shared the following photo, which the mainstream media very quickly picked up and began circulating.
When the photo first began making the rounds, many pointed out the stark difference in handwriting.
Still, liberal outlets like The Huffington Post continued to carry the story as pure fact. Carter reportedly subsequently received thousands of dollars in tips from strangers who read about her story and wanted to help.
( Washington Post ) Mary Carson picks up her leopard-print tote bag and tugs on her leopard-print scarf.
“I’m just going to do a little bit of business,” the 77-year-old says as she walks into Neiman Marcus at the Tysons Galleria in Northern Virginia and asks for the manager. He appears in a pinstripe suit and shakes her hand.
“I’m very disappointed in what’s happened with the Trump line,” she tells him. “I hate to do this — I’m not a real activist — but I learned a long, long time ago that you cannot mix business and politics.”
The manager listens patiently.
Carson, who worked in marketing before she retired, pulls out her Neiman Marcus credit card and prepares to give it back. It was the obvious thing to do, she says, once the retailer stopped carrying Ivanka Trump’s jewelry line on its website a few weeks ago.
“If the company feels like they can hurt the daughter of a president by doing something like this, that’s mean,” said Carson, who voted for Trump. “I feel very strongly about that.”
A week earlier, Carson had driven to the nearby Nordstrom and returned her store credit card. She’d had that card since 1988, she told the manager, and had used it to buy at least one St. John suit a year — price tag, roughly $1,400 — for decades.
“I said to her, ‘You all really are the best store in the area,’ ” recalled Carson, who lives in Vienna, Va. “ ‘It’s a shame you couldn’t keep your mouths shut about our president.’ ”
… The manager assures Carson that a few Neiman Marcus stores still carry Ivanka Trump jewelry, so she decides to hold onto her credit card — for now.
“But if that changes, I’ll be back to ask more questions,” she says. “I’m going to keep my eye on this.”
‘There are a lot of us’
A few days later, Carson is back at the mall. It’s Sunday afternoon, just after church, and she sees something that startles her: a T-shirt that says “F*** America” prominently displayed in a store entrance.
She walks in and asks the manager to remove it. “It’s not appropriate,” she says. When he refuses — it’s his opinion against hers, he tells her — she enlists the mall’s management. The shirt is removed.
( Daily Mail ) At least 28 people have been injured when a truck plowed into party-goers at a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans.
The crash happened at the corner of Orleans and N. Carrollton avenues at around 6.45pm during the Endymion Parade. At first the driver tried to weave through the crowd. Then he accelerated through the masses sending ‘bodies flying off the hood’ of his Chevrolet pick up truck.
NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said there is no evidence to suspect this is terrorism and that the 26-year-old driver appeared ‘highly intoxicated’.
Victims’ ages range from age three to their forties, according to the New Orleans Advocate. In total, 21 were taken to seven different hospitals throughout the city. Five are in critical condition and are being treated at trauma centers. Seven declined medical treatment.
GOOD! Trump won’t attend media roasting! Trump announced via Twitter Saturday afternoon he will not be attending this year’s annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner, writing, “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!”.
The White House Correspondents’ Association is a yearly Washington tradition, started in 1920, held on the last Saturday of April every year at the Washington Hilton where a guest comedian ( usually a left-wing nut) would roast the president and then the president would give a humorous response.
( Breitbart ) President Trump, in his third week in office, met with a class of Green Beret candidates and brought them into the Oval Office for the first time in the course’s history.
The 18 Army officers in the Special Forces Qualification Course, or “Q-course,” were visiting the National Security Council in early February, as a normal part of the course.
But this time, Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka, who was scheduled to speak to the students, had suggested that they meet the president.
The plan was to take them into the Roosevelt Room in the West Wing of the White House, but Trump decided to invite them into the Oval Office, to take pictures with them for their families.
“Halfway through the discussion, [Trump] said, ‘Hey — we’re not supposed to do this but follow me, and he brought them all into the Oval Office, took a group photograph around the Resolute desk, and then — throwing the schedules into a bit of a tizzy, said OK that’s not good enough,’” Gorka told Breitbart News in an interview.
“He said, ‘everybody stand in the corner.’ They all stood in the corner, and one-by-one we took photographs they can take home to their family with each future Green Beret next to the president at the Oval Office desk,” Gorka said.
“That’s how much he loves our soldiers — our warriors,” he said. Gorka had earlier brought up the meeting during remarks on a panel at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. Under Obama, he said, they “wouldn’t have even gotten into the West Wing.”
The Feb. 7 meeting, which was announced a day in advance, was not covered at the time by any news outlet.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Why does the left protest and the right doesn’t? The left is a hate group, Ben.
CALLER: Oh-ho. (chuckles)
RUSH: Their propulsion is hate, and they have to have an outlet for the hate. They hate so much. They hate many elements of America. They hate people that don’t think the way they do. It’s not just that they disagree, they hate, and this energy requires action. People on the right, they don’t hate anybody. We want everybody to get along, when you get right down to it. We’re Rodney King types, actually. And the right seeks political victory at the ballot box — and that’s just the way it’s been. It’s a bit cliched to say but the right, conservatives, work. They have jobs.
They don’t have time off to go join protest marches as a career. The left has turned that into a bought-and-paid-for, rent-a-mob type activity. Now, “Where are the George Soroses?” There’s all kinds of conservative donors. The Koch brothers are big donors. There’s all kinds of them. But none of them have actively organized hate groups that run around and protest and try to upset people and get in as close as they can to their lives and the way they live them and make a nuisance of themselves. That’s not how the right has always sought to win elections.
The left, if you get them honest, will admit they know they’re a minority.
They can’t win elections — as this last one demonstrated and many others — without lying and without camouflage and without masks hiding who they really are. So to get their way, they have to bully. They use their hate, bullying people into not opposing them out of fear or what have you. It’s two distinct cultures, two distinct behavioral norms. But I think what’s going to happen is that people like you, young people, are not going to put up with this. I think your age group of conservatism is going to become invested in protest and countering these people, and I would encourage you to do it. I think it’s called for. I think it’s about time. I say, “Get right in their faces and, ‘Screw you!’”
CALLER: And I think doing it… You’re exactly right. They’re coming from the side of hate. I think our purpose has to come from the side of love and truth and knowledge and do it in a way… That’s my objective where we don’t come out there and say… We may say, “Screw you,” from time to time. But I think in general, you show, the contrast with the truth that the right has versus the lies and the hate. I mean, they call us the bigots. They call us the racists.
THE DEVIL RIDES A DONKEY! The witch side of the Democrat Party – including Wiccans, shamans, Heremeticists, cunning folk, sorcerers and sorceresses, hoodooists, occultists, magicians, Ceremonialists and Ritualists – are joining forces to cast a spell on Donald Trump during a midnight ceremony. If the evil forces are so upset with Trump, the POTUS must really be doing a great job on the right side of God’s universe.
( Daily Mail ) Witches will be out protesting President Donald Trump on Friday night the best way they know how – magic!
Men and women from around the world are planning to gather and cast a spell at midnight that will stop President Trump from doing harm while also possibly banishing him from office.
Mass rituals have also been planned in multiple covens, during which men and women will perform a spell to bind President Trump and all those who abet him by delivering a chant and holding a brief ceremony.
This is not an exclusive witches-only event wither, with Wiccans, shamans, Heremeticists, cunning folk, sorcerers and sorceresses, hoodooists, occultists, magicians, Ceremonialists and Ritualists also invited and urged to take part.
The mass binding could not be easier either, with only a handful of household objects needed for the ceremony and the newly composed chant available online for all to see.
( Daily Mail ) Rutgers University spent nearly $1.5million on its 2016 commencement ceremony because of that year’s keynote speaker, then-President Barack Obama.
The hefty price tag is $523,000 more than it cost the university the year before, when its commencement speaker was Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy,’ according to NJ Advance Media.
A final accounting by the university found that most of the money was spent on the extensive security measures needed to accommodate the president as well as the record crowd that witnessed the event at the school’s football stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey.
( Politico ) When Omarosa Manigault, the former “Celebrity Apprentice” antihero-turned-White House adviser, needs to talk to President Donald Trump, she simply strolls into the Oval Office.
As assistant to the president and director of communications for the office of public liaison, Manigault enjoys what Trump aides refer to as walk-in privileges — meaning she doesn’t need an appointment or permission to pop her head in and consult with the leader of the free world.
Her level of easy access marks a break from the previous administration, where President Barack Obama and his gatekeeper chiefs of staff kept at bay the number of aides, even senior officials, who simply walked in without an appointment. In contrast, Trump may have set up the most accessible Oval Office in modern history.
…..But this is how Trump, 70, has always worked. At his office in Trump Tower, former staffers said, it was rare the boss would not welcome an aide into his 26th-floor office.
Trump wrote about his open-door policy in “The Art of the Deal” — on the first page. “Most people are surprised by the way I work,” he wrote. “I play it very loose. … I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. … I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops.”
Rarely have Democrats been so weakened. Republicans control the White House, both chambers of Congress and 33 governorships, and they are preparing to install a fifth conservative, Neil M. Gorsuch, on the Supreme Court
WASHINGTON — Reduced to their weakest state in a generation, Democratic Party leaders will gather in two cities this weekend to plot strategy and select a new national chairman with the daunting task of rebuilding the party’s depleted organization. But senior Democratic officials concede that the blueprint has already been chosen for them — by an incensed army of liberals demanding no less than total war against President Trump.
Immediately after the November election, Democrats were divided over how to handle Mr. Trump, with one camp favoring all-out confrontation and another backing a seemingly less risky approach of coaxing him to the center with offers of compromise.
Now, spurred by explosive protests and a torrent of angry phone calls and emails from constituents — and outraged themselves by Mr. Trump’s swift moves to enact a hard-line agenda — Democrats have all but cast aside any notion of conciliation with the White House. Instead, they are mimicking the Republican approach of the last eight years — the “party of no” — and wagering that brash obstruction will pay similar dividends.
…..Rarely have Democrats been so weakened. Republicans control the White House, both chambers of Congress and 33 governorships, and they are preparing to install a fifth conservative, Neil M. Gorsuch, on the Supreme Court.
…..In the race for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, which concludes with a vote in Atlanta on Saturday, the restive mood of liberal activists has buoyed a pair of insurgents, Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., against the perceived front-runner, Thomas E. Perez.
Mr. Perez, who was Mr. Obama’s labor secretary, is still viewed as a favorite in the race, and he has been backed by former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. But he has struggled to dispel the impression that he is an anointed favorite of Washington power brokers.
And Mr. Ellison and Mr. Buttigieg have continued to collect high-profile endorsements: Mr. Ellison won the support of Representative John Lewis of Georgia, the civil rights leader, on Tuesday, and Mr. Buttigieg was endorsed Wednesday by Howard Dean, the former party chairman who remains admired on the left.
( Daily Mail ) Michelle Obama was spotted getting in an early afternoon workout at SoulCycle in Washington DC on Thursday.
The former first lady was photographed making a quick exit from the spin studio after taking a noon class and heading straight towards the small envoy of Secret Service cars waiting to take her back to the $4.3million home she and husband Barack are living in with daughter Sasha.
Michelle seemed eager to go unnoticed during the outing, a goal she successfully achieved thanks in large part to the black hat and dark sunglasses she wore to cover her face, which paired perfectly with her black shirt, black spandex and black flip-flops.
This marks the first time that Michelle has been spotted in DC since she and her husband walked down the steps of the Capitol and boarded a helicopter out of the capital an hour after President Donald Trump was sworn into office on January 20.
( Daily Wire ) Left-wing CNN Democrat Chris Cuomo took to Twitter on Thursday to call for “tolerance” from 12-year-old girls and other minors with respect to mentally ill males suffering from gender dysphoria.
Cuomo seems to subscribe to the narrative that gender is a social construct and disconnected from biological realities. Given the general pliability of some social constructs over time, leftists believe that people can choose their gender.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: If Milo were a liberal, he could say whatever and then some, and he wouldn’t be addressing CPAC, he would be emceeing the Oscars.”
Liberals are really scared of Milo Yiannopoulos – gay Trump supporter, outspoken, funny and conservative – something unheard of from the right side, crushing the liberal mantra that you cannot be gay and conservative at the same time because the right side are nothing but a bunch of intolerant homophobes. The left and the NeverTrumpers decided that before Milo gets too famous and become mainstream, he has to be destroyed. And they did try, but I believe Milo is not destroyed and he’s definitely going away.
( Washington Examiner ) Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh skewered what he called the double standard of the Left on his nationally syndicated talk radio show on Tuesday.
Limbaugh gave his take on controversial comments by British journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, who caused a stir by appearing to defend pedophilia.
A victim of child sex abuse himself, Yiannopoulos faced backlash from both conservatives and liberals, losing his speaking slot at CPAC and resigning under pressure from Breitbart News Network.
“I think CPAC, by inviting Milo, was an attempt to reach out to millennials,” Limbaugh told a caller to his show. “I mean, they know. I know plenty of young people that think Milo is great, love Milo, admire Milo, think he’s courageous doing what he does.”
Miami New Times – Jane Seo blazed across the finish line at last weekend’s Fort Lauderdale Half Marathon with a stellar time of 1 hour 21 minutes. The professional New York food blogger’s blistering 6:15-per-mile pace earned her second place among the thousands who raced. Seo paraded around the finish line while grinning and gripping a gaudy medal.
But her pace, it turns out, was too good to be true. Seo has now been disqualified for cutting the course — a crime she confessed to only after a computer sleuth crushed her elaborate coverup. A lengthy post published on marathoninvestigation.com documented her lies in exquisite detail. She later posted a four-paragraph apology to her 34,400 Instagram followers.
“I made a HORRIBLE choice .. what an idiot I was!” she wrote in a post that’s since been taken down. “I am extremely ashamed … I am so sorry everyone.”
Donald Trump met with the CEOs of various manufacturing companies at the White House Thursday and couldn’t help but joke with Lockheed Martin’s Marilyn Hewson probably wanted Hillary to win to avoid $700 million price cut.
“I have to say this, Marillyn, you’re getting a lot of credit because you’re doing the right thing,” POTUS continued. “We appreciate it. She cut her price over $700 million, by over $700 million.”
“Do you think Hillary would have asked for 700 million?,” Trump transitioned. “Oh, boy. I assume you wanted her to win, but you know what, you’re going to do great and make more planes. it’s going to work out the same or better.”
( Washington Times ) The Trump administration revoked an Obama-era mandate compelling public schools nationwide to permit restroom and locker room access on the basis of gender identity — a move that could have significant ramifications for a case before the Supreme Court concerning transgender rights.
The Departments of Education and Justice issued a joint guidance Wednesday evening rolling back the order. The two-page “Dear Colleague Letter” said the Obama administration had failed to substantiate the claim that Title IX’s prohibition on “sex” discrimination in education also applies to gender identity.
“In these circumstances, the Department of Education and the Department of Justice have decided to withdraw and rescind the above-referenced guidance documents in order to further and more completely consider the legal issues involved,” the order reads. “The Departments thus will not rely on the views expressed within them.”
( Gateway Pundit ) President Donald Trump reduced the US Debt burden in his first month in office!
On January 20th, the day of the Trump Inauguration, the US Debt stood at $19,947 billion. On February 21st, a month later, the US Debt load stood at $19,935 billion. Trump cut the US Debt burden by $12 billion and 0.1% in his first month in office!
On January 20, 2017, the US debt was $19.947 billion. On February 21, 2017, the US debt was $19,935 billion.
By comparison, under President Obama, the US Debt burden increased by more than $200 billion in his first month in office. Obama increased the US Debt by 2% in his first month and signed the trillion dollar ‘Stimulus’ bill which is widely considered a colossal failure and waste of US tax dollars as well. The failed ‘Stimulus’ did not kick in till later in Obama’s first year leading to Obama’s first year deficit of $1.4 trillion. Overall Obama doubled the US Debt during his Presidency and set records for highest deficits and the largest debt increase by any President ever.
( Dallas News ) An Arlington preschool teacher has been fired over a series of anti-Semitic posts on social media, including a tweet that said “kill some Jews.”
Nancy Salem, who was fired from The Children’s Courtyard, also retweeted: “How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough!”
Tweets by Salem and other University of Texas at Arlington students were made public after watchdog group Canary Mission reported that 24 current and former students had made anti-Semitic comments online.
Salem, along with 18 other students in the report, belonged to the UTA chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, which Canary Mission said was a “focal point for campus anti-Semitism.”
Fox News Channel’s Alan Colmes has passed away at age 66 after a brief illness.
Colmes leaves behind his wife, Jocelyn Crowley, who issued the following statement:
Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.
Bill Hemmer announced the sad news this morning on “America’s Newsroom,” which then aired a tribute package from Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity, his former co-host on “Hannity & Colmes.”
In a statement this morning, Hannity called Alan Colmes “one of life’s most decent, kind and wonderful people you’d ever want to meet.”
( Zero Hedge ) As promised two days ago on the Sean Hannity radio show, James O’Keefe and his team at Project Veritas just released covertly captured, previously unseen video footage from within the CNN newsroom. But unlike his usual undercover sting operations, this footage was allegedly sourced from a CNN insider who apparently grew frustrated with the biased reporting of the “fake news” media outlet.
Per O’Keefe’s website, today’s release includes 119 hours of secretly recorded raw footage from an inside source at CNN with another 100 hours of footage still to be released. Given the volume of footage to be released, O’keefe is asking for help to transcribe and investigate the recordings.
The audio was secretly recorded in 2009 by an anonymous source inside CNN’s Atlanta headquarters who we are identifying as Miss X. The tapes contain soundbites from current and previous CNN employees Joe Sterling, Arthur Brice, and Nicky Robertson, as well as numerous others.
In order to expose media malfeasance within CNN, we need your help transcribing, investigating and connecting the dots on these 200+ hours of audio. Leave comments, upload transcriptions or contact us with your tips below.
Imagine a Republican did this! Democrat Madam Nancy Pelosi had a dementia episode during speech before a pro-Obamacare group called Families USA …Hey SNL, CNN and MSNBC, got time to make fun of your nana?
During a Friday appearance before Families USA — the activist group fighting the repeal of Obamacare — Pelosi was seen repeating words, telling the audience when to clap and mistakingly said John Kasich was the governor of Illinois.
She recalled telling her fellow Democrats that the Affordable Care Act was going to be a major achievement for government programs, and “stand there with Social Security and Medicare and Medicare,” apparently meaning to say “Medicaid.”
She attempted to butter up the audience by heaping praise on Families USA.
After attendees didn’t clap after she congratulated them for her work, she said, “When I said we could not have done it without Families USA, that is an applause line for you.”
She added, “Applause line!” after she said she looked forward to continuing to work with the activist group.
Pelosi even attempted to convey what she thought was a deep point.
“By the way, do you know who the poorest people in America are? Infants and children. Infants and children,” she said.
While Pelosi attempted to underscore bi-partisan support for Medicaid, she said, “Don’t take it from me. John Kasich, the governor of Illinois said, ‘Thank God for Medicaid.’”
Kasich is governor of Ohio — another flyover state that starts with a vowel in the eyes of a West Coast liberal.
Pelosi flubbed MLK’s name, calling him “Martin Luther Sing.”
( Grabien.com ) Controlling “exactly what people think” is the job of the media, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.
While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.
“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”
BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.
SCARBOROUGH: “It’s the — it’s the ground noise that he is throwing out there also, whether he is questioning, Mark, the legitimacy of federal judges to do what they have done since Marbury v. Madison. It’s when he says the media is the, quote –”
SCARBOROUGH: “– ‘enemy of the people’, where he sounds like Mussolini or Lenin which obviously causes concern that phrase right there makes him sound more like a dictator in training, when he sends Stephen Miller out and says, basically the president has absolute power, he shall not be questioned.”
Scarborough also accused Trump’s base of having a “blind spot” on the issue of illegal immigration.
“We have an economy, let’s face it, we have an economy that is built on illegal immigration,” Scarborough said. “We have an economy that is built on that. That is why I say why don’t you just legalize it?”
( Milo ) A report from The Daily Caller suggests Obama’s Department of Homeland Security attempted to hack computers connected to Indiana’s state electoral system between November 1 and December 16, 2016.
The Daily Caller attributes this report to its ‘News Foundation Investigative Group,’ which states these attacks are “the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems.”
Indiana’s Secretary of State Connie Lawson has reportedly confirmed the attack, telling The Daily Caller “we know that between November 1 and December 16 we were scanned with about 14,800 scans, nearly 15,000 different times.”
Indiana’s IT team reportedly traced the scans back to a DHS computer – the same one responsible for attacking Georgia’s electoral system last year.
According to The Daily Caller, both instances are illegal; the federal government is prohibited from trying to penetrate a state’s electoral system without approval.
Neither Georgia or Indiana reportedly gave permission.
( Daily Mail ) Riots have broken out in the Swedish suburb that Donald Trump referred to in his speech about immigration problems.
Police were forced to fire warning shots after a group of rioters began setting fire to cars, throwing stones at police and looting shops in the Rinkeby district of Stockholm on Monday night.
A police officer was injured during the clashes, Swedish public service broadcaster SVT reported.
Donald Trump made his confusing remarks about immigration in Sweden at his Florida rally on Saturday.
Trump was initially thought to be talking about terrorism when he warned of ‘what’s happening last night in Sweden’.
The disorder reportedly broke out after police arrested a wanted person, believed to be a drug dealer, at the subway station in Rinkeby at about 8pm that night.
‘It happened in connection with an intervention near the metro station, the officers were to detain a person, our colleagues got stones thrown at them’ Eva Nilsson at the police regional command center in Stockholm told Aftonbladet.
( Daily Mail ) Malia Obama found herself in the middle of a raging party on an Aspen mountaintop Sunday afternoon while enjoying lunch with a few of her socialite pals.
The 18-year-old intern at the Weinstein company was spotted at Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro on Highland Mountain with pals including Elizabeth, Zachary and Holden Tisch, Tassilo von Furstenberg, Brice Lourd and Audrey Kotick.
The group stuck to water for their afternoon seating at the popular hotspot, but nearby a group of close to 100 were spraying over 200 bottles of Veuve Clicquot while dancing on tables, some shirtless.
One man posted a photo of just a few of the many bottles before they were showered on guests, writing: ‘Spraying off Champagne fireworks with a bunch of marvelous maniacs and Obama’s daughter.’
Milo shows the perils of not processing his victimization.
Milo was raped as a child, repeatedly. Full stop. He used humor to deal with this grief. That is a way for a private person to handle his trauma. Public personalities are not allowed to openly joke about such subject matters. This is especially true when no one knows your back story.
Milo needs to spend time alone engaging in some horrific and painful reflection involving reliving much of the trauma. This is easy for me to say, of course, although today’s events show the cost of running from your past.
There are double standards. Milo joked, Roman Polanski raped.
Sarah Silverman has made pedophile jokes. Lena Dunham admitted to molesting her sister. Roman Polanski anally raped a 13-year old girl (after he drugged her).
Since raping a girl, Polanski has risen to stardom in Hollywood, earning standing ovations from adoring crowds. Lena Dunham had a show on HBO for five years, and Silverman remains in the game.
After days of speculation, it is official: Milo Yiannopoulos is out at Breitbart, with news of his resignation reaching social media just minutes ago via Michael Grynbaum of The New York Times.
In a statement published minutes ago, Yiannopoulos said, “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” continuing, “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.” After Yiannopoulos was slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a video of him discussing pedophilia made the rounds on Twitter and earned pretty widespread condemnation.
Yiannopoulos responded to the outcry insisting that he has an “utter disgust [for] adults who sexually abuse minors” while acknowledging that “these videos, even though some of them are edited deceptively, paint a different picture.”
