Montana, Hell, Let’s Talk of the Democrats’ LONG History of Political Violence

Sun, 28 May 2017 16:33:46 +0000

-By Warner Todd Huston The fake news media went mad last week when a Republican candidate from Montana got in a tussle with a pajama-boy-like journalist on the eve of Election Day. Across the fake news establishment the media whined about the “violence” inherent in the Republican Party in the era of Trump. But this narrative totally ignores the history of political violence perpetrated by Democrats that goes back well before the Civil War. The latest incident that got the fake news establishment feeling their oats was when Montana’s Republican candidate for Congress, Greg Gianforte, pushed around a reporter for(image)

Republicans and the Confederacy

Thu, 25 May 2017 21:00:13 +0000

In a 05/19/17 speech to the citizens of his city, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu explains why it was in the city’s best interest to remove Confederacy monuments from city property. Here are excerpts from the speech (via USA Today). “Today I want to speak about why we chose to remove these four monuments to the Lost Cause of the Confederacy, but also how and why this process can move us towards healing and understanding of each other. So, let’s start with the facts. The historic record is clear, the Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and P.G.T. Beauregard statues were(image)



Anti-Gunner Converted by Reality

Wed, 24 May 2017 19:12:44 +0000

From NewsChannel3: “I was always anti-gun. … I wasn’t really scared of them, I just decided I wanted to be anti-gun, and what a difference 24 hours makes.” Meet Lori Shelton: She’s learning how to properly use a gun after a nightmare shook her family last month. “I was getting ready for work doing my normal routine, and I heard a noise as I was getting out of the shower.” Lori, who lives in the Greenbrook subdivision, couldn’t believe what she saw next. “I saw a man coming through the back of the house,” she recalled. “The first thing I(image)



Sean Hannity Feels The Heat

Wed, 24 May 2017 17:56:51 +0000

Fox News’ resident polemicist Sean Hannity is feeling the heat after his arrogant response to the fallout over a now-discredited story about the late DNC staffer Seth Rich. In What the Hell is Going on with Sean Hannity and the Nutty Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory?!, John Ziegler explains the brouhaha: “The “theory,” as best I can tell, is that, since the police have yet to find the culprit (I’m sure the police are also in on the conspiracy to protect the now powerless Hillary Clinton) Rich was murdered because he was the REAL source of the DNC emails which WikiLeaks(image)

Oklahoma’s GOP Morons

Sun, 21 May 2017 18:00:28 +0000

Thus far in 2017, Oklahoma GOP politicians have worked hard to bring embarrassment to the GOP. How have Oklahoma Republicans messed up? Let me count the ways. 1) State Rep. Dan Kirby resigned after the Oklahoma House of Representatives’ Special Investigation Committee recommended that he be expelled from the House of Representatives for sexually harassing two legislative employees. 2) State Rep. John Bennett insisted that Oklahoma Muslims fill out a questionnaire before he would let them meet with him. That questionnaire asked Muslims, “Do you beat your wife?” 3) State Sen. Ralph Shortey resigned after being charged with three felonies(image)

GOP Experiencing Trump Fatigue

Wed, 17 May 2017 21:00:33 +0000

Donald Trump has been President of the USA for just four months, and the Republican Party is already experiencing Trump fatigue. That is a summary of recent reports coming out of D.C. Niall Stanage writes, “Republican unease with President Trump is building, and if it snowballs, the White House could suffer significant political damage. Asked about the mood among conservatives, GOP strategist Rick Tyler replied with a single word: “Fatigue.”” Jordain Carney elaborates: “Exasperated Republicans in the House and Senate are growing tired of having to defend President Trump. Daily dramas from the White House are increasingly frustrating Republicans on(image)






A Tale of Two Modern-Day Liberals

Mon, 15 May 2017 19:00:51 +0000

Classic liberals are generous with their own money. Modern-day liberals are generous with other people’s money. In an opinion piece published by USA Today, Democrat senators Chris Coons and Jeff Merkley demonstrate that they are modern-day liberals. It is the opinion of Coons and Merkley that the U.S. government must use federal tax dollars to help non-Americans who live outside of the USA even when it is not vital to the USA for the U.S. government to do so. Ah, but according to Coons and Merkley, it is vital to the USA. Hogwash! It is ridiculous for the U.S. government(image)

A Tale of Two Democrat Politicians

Fri, 12 May 2017 15:12:48 +0000

Former congresswoman Corrine Brown is using a page from Hillary Clinton’s playbook. From CBS News: “After a historic, nearly 25-year career representing Florida in Congress, former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown was found guilty on Thursday of taking money from a charity that was purported to be giving scholarships to poor students. . . .
