Actors at Golden Globes to protest harassment by wearing Weinstein’s favorite shades of black

**Written by Doug Powers If you’re a male actor in Hollywood looking for a way to protest your entire industry turning a blind eye for decades to sexual assault while fellow lefties climbed atop award show soapboxes to lecture the rest of the world about morality and ethics, what do you do? Well, since “boycotting self-congratulatory award shows” seems to be totally out of the question, Plan B is apparently “pretend your tuxedo is a political statement”: Male actors have decided to join forces with their female peers who will protest sexual harassment by wearing black to the 2018 Golden Globes. A number of high profile actors including Dwayne Johnson, Tom Hiddleston and Armie Hammer will sport black on the Globes red carpet according to their stylist Ilaria Urbinanti. After receiving many questions on … Read entire article »

Marie Harf: Hey, Trump couldn’t be defeating ISIS without Obama doing so little about it

**Written by Doug Powers The U.S. military attributes an acceleration in the defeat of ISIS at least partly to changes in rules of engagement: ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held — with half of that terror group’s so-called “caliphate” having been recaptured since President Trump took office less than a year ago, U.S. military officials said Tuesday. The massive gains come after years of “onerous” rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner. “The rules of engagement under the Obama administration were onerous. I mean what are we doing having individual target determination being conducted in the White House, which in some cases adds weeks and weeks,” said retired Air Force Lt. … Read entire article »

FORE! It’s Trump vs. CNN on (and near) the golf course

FORE! It’s Trump vs. CNN on (and near) the golf course

**Written by Doug Powers On Tuesday, CNN was determined to debunk President Trump’s tweet that he’d be working that day by getting footage of him on the course at Mar-a-Lago. My theory is that Jim Acosta bravely volunteered to disguise himself as a hedge in order to get close enough to record this harrowing footage: Trump on the golf course today, captured by CNN cameras https://t.co/hctg9sO23e — Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 26, 2017 By Wednesday, however, Trump’s people (or … Read entire article »

Global warming predictions for snow-free, sweltering winters are happe… wait, never mind

**Written by Doug Powers Just over ten months ago, the winter in some U.S. areas brought with it warnings of the coming sauna caused by global warming: (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Apparently, we were on the precipice of doom just last winter as alarmists were waking up on their sweat-soaked Al Gore “Inconvenient Truth” signature line of bed sheets with pangs of guilt: How much should we really be enjoying weather so unseasonal, so suggestive of the consequences … Read entire article »

NYC mayor’s socialism dream motivated by capitalism success stories (wait, what?)

**Written by Doug Powers New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio provided the nation with the secular holiday season-approximate gift of laughter in a new interview. Why is he encouraged that his socialist agenda will eventually succeed on a widespread basis? Well, just look at these two historic success stories of capitalism! De Blasio chalks up the fizzling of his progressive agenda to being overtaken by the Bernie Sanders campaign, which launched at a much smaller event on the other side of the Capitol two weeks earlier in the spring 2015, but became a phenomenon while focusing on many of the same issues, only with much wider support. De Blasio bristles when presented with this failure, arguing that it’s “banal and simplistic” to expect him to fail at taking his message national now. … Read entire article »

Confirmed: Obama & his flacks need some self-awareness for Christmas

**Written by Doug Powers Yesterday President Trump tweeted that he learned from Fox News about the FBI re-assigning the agency’s top lawyer. In other news, former President Obama and his minions continue to suffer from Inauguration Day-onset amnesia: I saw @BarackObama speak in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. He said that he didn’t watch cable news when he was POTUS because everything on there was stuff he had learned a long time before it was … Read entire article »

Attn. Nancy Pelosi! CBS News finds families who WON’T be killed by the tax bill

**Written by Doug Powers You know it’s bad for the Dems when even the mainstream media can’t give an assist. Here’s a CBS News story that did NOT cooperate with the Democrat narrative of “Armageddon” and mass misery.

Video awesomeness: Nikki Haley gives U.N. the wedgie of a lifetime

**Written by Doug Powers On Thursday, the United Nations finally found somebody they weren’t willing to appease: BREAKING: UN General Assembly votes 128-9 to declare US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital `null and void’ — The Associated Press (@AP) December 21, 2017 That was, of course, an empty gesture from the U.N. since the U.S. has veto power over U.N. empty gestures. All that led to Nikki Haley telling the U.N. to pound sand, and it was glorious: (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This was WAY past overdue: “The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly,” Haley said in a speech before the vote. “We will remember it when we are called upon to, once again, make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations.” “America … Read entire article »

Anybody surprised? Susan Rice slams Trump’s ‘America First’ approach

**Written by Doug Powers If Trump changed his slogan to “Iran First” Rice would probably be temporarily placated, but that’s not going to happen: Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice blasted President Trump’s recent national security policy rollout in a new op-ed, arguing the U.S. will lose its moral authority abroad as well as make a mockery out of his “America first” approach. “Relinquishing the nation’s moral authority in these difficult times will only embolden rivals and weaken ourselves. It will make a mockery of the very idea of America first,” Rice wrote in The New York Times on Wednesday. “The United States’s strength has long rested not only on our unmatched military and economy, but also on the power of our ideals,” wrote Rice, also a former United States ambassador to the … Read entire article »

Awkward: NBC/MSNBC journos getting bonuses because of GOP tax plan

**Written by Doug Powers I can’t wait to see how the lib media manage to spin this story as evidence of more cruelty, death, destruction and “Armageddon” the GOP tax plan hath wrought: JUST IN: Comcast to give $1,000 bonuses to more than 100K “eligible frontline and non-executive employees” & invest $50 billion over the next five years in infrastructure “based on the passage of tax reform”. https://t.co/YKho1O67Ek (Disclosure: Comcast is parent co. of CNBC) — CNBC (@CNBC) December 20, 2017 Journalists at NBC/MSNBC are among the Comcast employees getting $1,000 bonuses “based on the passage of tax reform and the FCC’s action on broadband.” (https://t.co/PXYkLqMrgH) https://t.co/JXgYK4W0GT — Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) December 21, 2017 Maybe some MSNBC reporters will donate their bonuses to the DNC in an effort to cleanse themselves of the irony.

GOP tax bill causes Nancy Pelosi to lose remaining fragment of her mind

**Written by Doug Powers The GOP tax bill is now very close to passage, and as that became clear last night, Nancy Pelosi put on her spelunking gear for another deep descent into insanity and self-unawareness: A vote to pass the #GOPTaxScam is a vote to install a permanent plutocracy in America. — Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 19, 2017 A warning about plutocracy from a super-wealthy member of Congress who’s been in power for decades? Pelosi might be trying to convince people the tax bill will cost them their lives, but it clearly has yet to even take away her unintentional sense of humor. There are few things more disturbing than hearing the swell of cheers from the @HouseGOP as they raise taxes on 86 million middle class families. #GOPTaxScam — Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 19, … Read entire article »

Harry Reid found an out-of-this-world way to secretly reward a donor

Harry Reid found an out-of-this-world way to secretly reward a donor

**Written by Doug Powers Here’s a little story you might have read about this week: In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. Which was how the Pentagon wanted it. Scratch beneath the surface, though, and that’s also how Harry Reid wanted it: The shadowy program — parts of it remain classified — began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the … Read entire article »

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 In Oklahoma City, words don’t mean what they plainly mean. Asking government officials simple questions prompts Orwellian acrobatics. By distorting language and obfuscating actions, public bureaucrats subvert transparency and evade accountability. Whether in the fictional dictatorship of Oceania, or the true-life fascistic regime of North Korea, or the petty tyranny of Oklahoma, linguistic deceit is an instrument of a State with something to hide. Last week, I reported … Read entire article »

Senate Dems decide they don’t want to quit Franken, and vice-versa

**Written by Doug Powers You knew something like this was in the works when Al Franken took the “delayed resignation” angle. Pump the brakes! At least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who urged Franken not to step down to begin with — at least not before he went through an Ethics Committee investigation — said the Minnesota senator was railroaded by fellow Democrats. “What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast to post on Tuesday. Sen. Pat Leahy is among Dems who agree with … Read entire article »

Irony gold: ‘DREAMer’ activists arrested for unlawful entry… to Chuck Schumer’s office

**Written by Doug Powers This is definitely a late entry as a finalist for the most ironic story of the year: USCP arrest four protesters in Schumer’s Capitol Hill office after hours. Were busted around 8 pm et. Charged w/unlawful entry. Were protesting immigration policy and demanding action on the DREAM Act. — Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) December 16, 2017 Come on, Chuck, why won’t you insist that your workspace serves as a “sanctuary office” for your like-minded brethren? Seven so-called “Dreamers” as well as one of their allies were arrested during a sit-in Friday at the Washington, D.C., offices of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, according to a media representative from an advocacy organization. And now they’re going on a hunger strike and facing … Read entire article »

U.N. readies strongly worded, toothless resolution after Trump acknowledges reality

**Written by Doug Powers The United Nations frequently criticizes what they call “climate denial” but they’re perfectly comfortable with reality denial, as evidenced by the triggering after President Trump said that the city where Israel’s capital is located actually is the capital city of Israel. Trump’s decision really got some U.N. bureaucrats’ Boutros Boutros-Ghali signature line of undies in a wad: The United Nations (U.N.) Security Council is weighing a draft resolution that would essentially seek to nullify any move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The resolution, drafted by Egypt and circulated among the Security Council’s 15 members, does not directly mention the United States or President Trump, who moved last week to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, according to Reuters, which viewed a copy of the text.

SNL cast member proves Trump wrong to call show biased by getting a Hillary tattoo

**Written by Doug Powers It’s impressive the way so many comedic performers in the last few years have been so willing to speak truth to power in either party. Wait, never mind: Hillary Clinton has made quite an impression on “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson — on his right leg, to be exact. Davidson, who publicly supported Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, posted a photo Friday on Instagram of his new tattoo, which is of Clinton. “Wanted to get @hillaryclinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero,” the New York City native wrote. “Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe.” I think Peter Strzok also has one of these: SNL cast member shows off Hillary Clinton tattoo https://t.co/IjNghJtdKm pic.twitter.com/IMkni85Vip — The … Read entire article »
