Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:19:42 GMT

U.S. State Dept Puts $700,000 into Hungarian Media, Demands ‘Programming’ Against Orban, Patriots

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:17:11 GMT

The U.S. State Department has courted controversy by announcing it will plough $700,000 into Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government. The funding was announced by U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously appeared to openly criticise the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [U.S.] foreign policy” and remarking that “not every criticism of the government is ‘fake news’.” Breitbart London spoke to a State Department official who confirmed it supports what it calls “democracy and human rights programming” in many countries, and that its intentions in Hungary — a NATO ally — are to “support...

Jobless claims drop back down to 239,000

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:16:05 GMT

First-time jobless claims fell 13,000 to 239,000 last week, the Department of Labor reported Wednesday, more than the 9,000 drop economists expected. With Wednesday's numbers, claims have continued to hover at extremely low levels, despite the fall disruption of the hurricanes that slammed the southeastern U.S. Claims collections in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are still being affected by the storms, the agency said. Low jobless claims are a good sign for the economy. If fewer people are applying for benefits at state agencies, it suggests that layoffs are relatively rare, and job creation high. "Claims remain low, even...

'Non-white' student linked to racist graffiti inside school, officials say

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:10:53 GMT

School officials in a Missouri community were making plans Tuesday to discipline a “non-white” student whom they said had confessed to writing a racial slur and the phrase “White Lives Matter” on a mirror inside a girls’ restroom at a high school. Parkway schools Superintendent Keith Marty said in a statement Tuesday that the revelation that a non-white student was involved was surprising, but it did not “diminish the hurt” caused by the incident at Parkway Central High School in Chesterfield. "The behavior was wrong and the student will be held accountable for this serious act according to our student...

Second U.S. judge halts Trump's proposed transgender military ban

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:53:37 GMT

BALTIMORE — Another federal judge has halted a proposed transgender military ban, expanding on an initial ruling issued last month against the plan by President Donald Trump's administration. In a preliminary injunction issued Tuesday in Baltimore, U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis ruled that transgender service members have "demonstrated that they are already suffering harmful consequences" due to the proposed ban including threat of discharge, stigma and the cancellation or delay of surgeries related to their gender transitions. The six plaintiffs in the lawsuit he reviewed have all been receiving hormone therapy. In a strongly-worded passage from his 53-page decision, Garbis...


Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:50:15 GMT

I must admit I have never in my life purchased a ticket to a sports event. I am not a sports enthusiast. But I am an American black citizen, and I have had it up to the gills with black people who embrace victimhood. I also highly resent my being expected to do the same in order to affirm my “blackness.” Black victims these days, for the most part, are the product of decades of Black Americans being used primarily by white progressive leftists to advance an anti-American agenda. The current brouhaha surrounding the despicable behavior of NFL athletes toward...

Trump rips NFL after report on new national anthem policy

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:49:52 GMT

President Trump blasted the NFL in a tweet Wednesday after a report said the league is considering keeping players in the locker room during the national anthem next year if protests continue through the rest of this season, saying that’s “almost as bad as kneeling.” “The NFL is now thinking about a new idea – keeping teams in the Locker Room during the National Anthem next season. That’s almost as bad as kneeling!,” Trump, who’s at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday, posted on Twitter. “When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart? This...

Charles Manson Was an Evolutionist

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:48:29 GMT

November 22, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Charles Manson Was an Evolutionist Few Darwinians would condone murder, of course, but the Manson case shows what can happen to someone who puts their faith in the teachings of Darwin and his disciples. Well, after 45 years in prison for the heinous murders he instigated, Charles Manson has finally met his Maker. Many in the public have held a kind of horrified fascination for the cult hero whose “Manson family” shocked the world in 1969 with some of the bloodiest, cruelist, most senseless murders known up to that time. How many who...

Hillary Clinton calls 2016 the first 'reality TV campaign' (she lost because she was too honest)

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:25:36 GMT

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said the 2016 campaign was the first "reality TV campaign," bringing its own unique set of challenges. "My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality," Mrs. Clinton said in an interview that aired Wednesday on "The Hugh Hewitt Show." She said that running after a two-term president of the same party also brought its challenges in the campaign, adding it was hard to argue she was an agent of change when she supported much of former President Barack Obama's agenda. "If you are...

Trump's Travel Ban Helps ISIS Stage Attacks in the U.S., Democrats Say

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:05:52 GMT

As part of their latest attempt to block President Donald Trump’s travel ban, Senate Democrats say the order preventing refugees from Muslim-majority countries is being used by ISIS to recruit lone-wolf terrorists. Eight Democratic senators on Friday introduced the No Ban on Refugees Act, which would prohibit the U.S. government from barring refugees from coming into the U.S. based on their country of origin. "Trump's refugee ban puts American lives at risk and it plays right into the hands of our enemies," the bill’s lead sponsor, Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, said in a statement. "There's no real danger to...

European Environmentalists Rekindling Cocaine Problem in Colombia and in the United States

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:05:48 GMT

Not that many years ago, the South American nation of Colombia was on the cusp of becoming a failed “narco-state.” With climatic conditions ideal for the growing of coca plants, and with dense jungles providing natural cover for illegal operations, Colombia became an international hub for the manufacturing and export of cocaine. As demand for these drugs grew in the United States from the 1970s on, so too did the violence and corruption of powerful drug cartels as they expanded territory, and battled rivals and the government. By the 1990s, Colombia was regarded as one of the most dangerous places...

Conservatives Sound 'Wake-Up' Call in Washington

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:55:30 GMT

A group of 44 conservative leaders have sent a letter to all members of Congress that might be called a conservative wake-up call. The group represents, through their various organizations, a broad array of conservative concerns. But they boil it all down to three areas that all agree need immediate legislative action. Tax reform, which currently is in the pipeline, bolstering our defense budget, and getting the federal budget in order through fiscal restraint. The point these conservatives wish to drive home to Congress is that Donald Trump's election in 2016 was not just an anti-establishment vote. It was a...

Palin appeals dismissal of New York Times defamation suit

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:26:51 GMT

Washington (AFP) – Sarah Palin, a former governor of Alaska and Republican vice presidential candidate, appealed on Tuesday the dismissal of her defamation suit against The New York Times, according to a court filing.

Charles Manson and the Weather Underground

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:16:16 GMT

Let’s not forget Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and the Four-Finger Salute. Most articles on the death of madman Charles Manson opened by mentioning his role in the diabolical Tate-LaBianca murders. The AP story started this way: Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.… The Manson Family, as his followers were called, slaughtered five of its victims on Aug. 9, 1969, at Tate’s home:...

Senate Panel Funds Border Wall, But Continues ‘Catch and Release’

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:15:25 GMT

The Senate’s homeland defense budget committee voted to fund President Donald Trump’s $1.6 billion request to build or upgrade 74 miles of border wall but rejected his request for extra funding to repatriate or block more illegal migrants. The House has already approved the $1.6 billion in border-wall funding, so the Democrats’ next best chance to stop the funding is a vote on the Senate floor. The wall funding is just 3 percent of the over $51.6 billion bill, which funds all aspects of homeland spending in 2018. The committee refused to add funding for 850 extra repatriation officers or...

Report: Some NFL Owners Pushing For Teams To Stay In Locker Room For National Anthem Next Year

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:05:24 GMT

Some NFL owners are considering a change to the league's national anthem policy that would possibly keep players in the locker room when the Star-Spangled Banner is played before football games, according to The Washington Post. Any policy change would have to be discussed after the season. “I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” an unnamed source told The Post.

France's Le Pen says she is victim of 'banking fatwa' over account closures

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:01:06 GMT

NANTERRE/PARIS (Reuters) - French far-right leader Marine Le Pen accused banks on Wednesday of closing accounts that belong to her and her party, saying she has been the victim of a "banking fatwa" meant to silence her National Front. The 49-year-old is smarting from defeat in presidential and parliamentary elections this year, during which she already accused French banks of being politically biased for not giving loans to finance her campaigns. "This is an attempt to suffocate an opposition party and no democrat should accept that," Le Pen told a news conference, calling on President Emmanuel Macron and other political...

Report: FBI and Justice Department Officials Not Able to Verify the Trump Dossier

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:26:45 GMT

FBI and Justice Department officials have told congressional investigators in recent days that they have not been able to verify or corroborate the substantive allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign made in the Trump dossier, according to a recent report. The inability to verify any of the dossier’s allegations about collusion or conspiracy came during face-to-face briefings with congressional staff, sources told the Washington Examiner‘s chief political correspondent Byron York. The inability to verify any collusion or conspiracy is significant, since the dossier may have triggered the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, which has now become...

Trump advocated for Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner's return to New York: Report

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:19:51 GMT

President Trump believes first daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both high-profile White House advisers, should return to New York, according to a report. “He keeps pressuring them to go,” a source close to Kushner told Vanity Fair, referring to the president, in an article published Tuesday. Trump is reportedly advocating for the move, in part, so the couple's brand can avoid further damage inflicted by negative press coverage from the political scene. The suggestion comes as pressure mounts on the Trump administration from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. Kushner, once charged with enhancing government efficiency, improving relations...
