Trump: Kaepernick Should Have Been Suspended For Kneeling, Would Have Never Done It Again

President Trump said if former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was suspended for kneeling he would have stopped and “you would never have had a problem.” From his interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night: PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: So I watched Colin Kaepernick and I thought it was terrible. And then it got bigger and bigger and started mushrooming. And frankly, the NFL should have suspended him for one game and he never would have done it again. They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him, if he did it a third time, for the season and you would never have had a problem. But I will tell you, you cannot disrespect our country, our flag, our anthem, you … Read entire article »

Huckabee Sanders: Corker Entitled To His Own Opinions, Not His Own Facts

From the October 10, 2017, White House press briefing: REPORTER: Thanks, Sarah. Over the weekend, Senator Bob Corker called the White House an "adult daycare center,†said the President could lead the country into World War III, and said that "He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.†What can you tell us a little about the internal reaction to such a senior Republican making comments like that? And is there concern that other top Republicans could make similar comments like that? SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS, WHITE HOUSE: Look, Senator Corker is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but he’s not entitled to his own facts.

Bannon Declares War On GOP Establishment: “We’re Coming After All Of Them And We’re Going To Win”

On Monday’s edition of Hannity, Breitbart executive chairman and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon talked about his plan to challenge every Republican Senator up for re-election in 2018 in the primary, except Sen. Ted Cruz. Bannon said Republican incumbents have committed “economic hate crimes” against the “forgotten man.” Bannon said he is declaring “war” on the Republican establishment and those that don’t back what President Trump ran on. He said there is a “new game in town” and promised to “cut off the oxygen” to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. Bannon said any person running for the Senate in 2018 that wants his support must oppose McConnell as the Republican Leader. The Breitbart chief gave a warning to all incumbents: “Just voting is not good … Read entire article »

Camille Paglia vs. Identity Politics: Return To Authentic 1960s Vision Where Consciousness Transcends Divisions Of Gender, Race, Ethnicity

Via Jordan B Peterson on YouTube: An Earth-shaking meeting of the minds takes place between Dr. Jordan Peterson and feminist icon Camille Paglia. Peterson interviews Paglia, only to find that they agree on just about everything. They riff on their concerns about modern feminism, the myth of the Patriarchy, and the future of Western civilization. In the above clip, Paglia and Peterson discuss the problem of the influence of neo-Marxist ideology in the universities –and in Western culture in general– and postulate that a return to “the authentic 1960s vision” of “cosmic consciousness” could be the only way to transcend divisions of race, class, gender, and ethnicity that are being exploited and exacerbated by “lazy” Marxist intellectuals. “On the largest scale, I am concerned about the future of Western culture, … Read entire article »

Mnuchin: No Tax Cuts For Wealthy, Benefits For Middle Class, $1 Trillion Cut In Deficit

This Week host George Stephanopoulos grills Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin over the Trump tax reform proposal. Mnuchin claims the tax plan will include no tax cuts for the wealthy, benefits for the middle class and a near $1 trillion cut in the deficit. However, Mnuchin said while the objective is a tax cut for the middle class, he could not make a “guarantee” that would happen. GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, THIS WEEK: Let’s take it now to the president’s Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, joining us this morning. Mr. Secretary, thank you for joining us this morning. We just heard the president right there, also, you and your colleagues have said the wealthy will not get a tax code under the plan. But it’s really hard to see how that can possibly be true, given the fact … Read entire article »

O’Reilly to Hannity: Far Left Mobilizing Minorities To Be Angry, Anti-White; A New Constitution Is The “Endgame”

Bill O’Reilly made his return to the FOX News Channel in an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show Tuesday night and talked about politics, race, the NFL kneeling controversy, the media, his new book Killing England, what he has been doing since he exited the network and more. O’Reilly also weighed in on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem and presentation of the flag and said it is a “mob mentality,” “an anti-Trump demonstration” that America is an “evil country” where “white supremacists stalk innocent blacks.” (O’Reilly’s full appearance below) According to O’Reilly, “the constitution, the economic system, the leadership, the electoral system” are up for grabs. “It’s a mob mentality; it is an anti-Trump demonstration, that is what it has morphed into.

Obama: We Have To Keep “Our Leaders” From “Inflicting Real Human Suffering On Their Constituents”

Former President Barack Obama delivered a speech at an event held by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on Wednesday in New York City. Without naming him, Obama said the threat of President Trump “inflicting real human suffering” requires people like him to “mobilize every couple months” to prevent it. FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: For the first time, more than 90% of Americans know the security of health insurance. Paying more for insurance, or being denied insurance because of a preexisting condition or because you are a woman – that’s not a thing anymore. We got rid of that. And people are alive today because of it, and that’s progress. Now, the legislation that we passed was full of things that still need to be fixed. It wasn’t perfect, but it … Read entire article »

The Myth That Climate Change Created Harvey, Irma

Flooding in homes and businesses across Houston was still on the rise when Politico ran a provocative article, titled “Harvey Is What Climate Change Looks Like.” Politico was not alone, as another news outlet called the one-two punch of Harvey and Irma the potential “new normal.” Brad Johnson, executive director of the advocacy group Climate Hawks Vote, says Harvey and Irma are reason to finally jail officials who “reject science.” Rather than focus on the victims and offer solutions for speedy recovery, pundits and politicians in the wake of Harvey focused on saying, “I told you so.” Climate disaster response rules 1) save lives 2) global warming is here 3) put officials who reject science in jail https://t.co/xLGt79yLOP — Brad Johnson (@climatebrad) September 7, 2017 Except they’re not telling the full story.

Lawmaker Says Congress Will ‘Have to Be on Our Toes’ After Failing to Scrap $900 Million ‘Earmark’

After failing to stop what he called an “earmark,” one Republican lawmaker is preparing to fight the possible return of pork-barrel spending in Congress. Rep. Ted Budd worked to block $900 million in a transportation funding bill bound for an Amtrak project in New Jersey, saying the funding violated the House’s ban on earmarks. The North Carolina Republican’s amendment, which would have let other cities apply for the money, failed Wednesday in a House vote, 260-159.  “I had a lot of my conservative colleagues say, ‘Thank you for being in the fight and being in the lead,’” Budd said. “And then I also had some from the New Jersey [and] New York delegation come up and slap me on the back and say, ‘I am going to get re-elected because I fought your amendment,’” he … Read entire article »

Freedom Imperiled in Hong Kong After Democracy Advocates Sent to Prison

Hong Kong’s freedom from Chinese meddling is quickly eroding. On Aug. 17, Joshua Wong, Nathan Law, and Alex Chow—the leaders of the “Umbrella Revolution” student movement, which demanded democracy in Hong Kong in 2014—were sentenced to six and eight months in prison by the Hong Kong Court of Appeal. Wong, Chow, and Law were involved in the Occupy movement that advocated democracy and sought the right for Hong Kong citizens to directly elect the chief executive—Hong Kong’s equivalent of a president. Protests were mostly peaceful and predominately student-led. But as the face of democracy in Hong Kong, the Umbrella Movement was seen as a direct threat to Beijing. Just days prior to receiving their prison sentence, the Eastern Magistrates Court issued a sentence of community service and suspension for one year to Wong, Law, … Read entire article »

Trump Is Right. ‘Our Tax Code Is a Giant, Self-Inflicted Economic Wound.’

In his second speech in two weeks on the need for tax reform, President Donald Trump again made a strong case, explaining that “our tax code is a giant, self-inflicted economic wound.” This time speaking in North Dakota, the president reiterated his four key goals for updating the broken U.S. tax system: a simplified tax code, a middle-class tax cut, a more competitive business environment, and the ability for business to bring home trillions of dollars of overseas profits. To this list of goals, I would also add full expensing as a critical reform. The president’s first goal is “a tax code that is simple, fair, and easy to understand.” To meet this goal, tax reform must eliminate tax subsidies. The tax code should not be used to pick winners and losers. That … Read entire article »

New Study Shows Political Unrest Often Starts With Lack of Upward Mobility

In countries with higher levels of economic freedom, individuals are free to move up (or down) the socio-economic ladder because of the decisions they make and the work that they do. They have what economists call social mobility. The freedom to earn income according to one’s talents and to own and control property are a big part of economic freedom and of social mobility. In more economically free societies, the socio-economic status a person has as a child need not determine that status as an adult. Not surprisingly, new research, published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, affirms a relationship between social immobility and political unrest. Riots, strikes, anti-government demonstrations, political assassinations, guerrilla fighters, and revolutions and civil wars are more likely in countries lacking social mobility. Christian Houle, the author of the … Read entire article »
