John Kerry slams Trump for ruining N. Korea’s disinterest in getting nukes

**Written by Doug Powers This is the quintessential John Kerry response to a question about a rogue regime that got even more rogue-ish during eight years of hope, change, appeasement, strongly worded letters, red lines, hashtags, James Taylor concerts and pallets of cash: Former Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview scheduled to air Monday that President Trump’s rhetoric has given North Korea a reason to say it needs to acquire a nuclear weapon. “I think what the president needs to do is make sure he’s not feeding into North Korea’s fear of regime change, or of you know — a unilateral attack, or otherwise,” Kerry told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “And I think the rhetoric to date has frankly stepped over the line with respect to the messages that are being sent. … Read entire article »

Satire DOA: Team Hillary names Donna Brazile as part of massive Russia collusion cabal

**Written by Doug Powers The Clinton campaign responding to claims in Donna Brazile’s book by saying she fell for the Russian intrusion and brainwashing effort has got to be a new record for begging the question. The more proof that arises showing Hillary was a bad and unscrupulous candidate will simply be, according to the Clinton faithful, additional “evidence” that the Russian propaganda effort was a success. If the spin below doesn’t work, next there will be Clinton staffers claiming Brazile showed up for work every day at the DNC wearing an “I-heart-Putin” babushka. Dasvidanya, Donna! The open letter signed by more than 100 people involved in Clinton’s White House bid, including chairman John Podesta and vice chairwoman Huma Abedin, said the staffers “do not recognize the campaign” that Brazile “portrays in … Read entire article »

What happened!? Pelosi, Mook ready to leave 2016 behind. Now.

**Written by Doug Powers After Hillary Clinton’s election loss, her campaign quickly released a “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative that so many in the media were happy to run with. Nancy Pelosi and Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook were among those who kept the talking point alive over the course of (much of) the ensuing year: .@realDonaldTrump must not be allowed to wriggle out of his duty to hold Russia accountable. #ProtectOurDemocracy https://t.co/00WST3ae3Y pic.twitter.com/55tAxAXlFj — Nancy Pelosi … Read entire article »

Look to Elizabeth Warren then vs. now for some (f)rigging hilarity

**Written by Doug Powers Here’s Sen. Elizabeth “Dances With Identity Fraud” Warren in October of 2016: It’s not rigged, @realDonaldTrump. You’re losing fair & square. Put on your big-boy pants because this is what accountability looks like. — Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) October 19, 2016 Fast forward to just over a year later after the Donna Brazile’s claims of DNC pulling strings to make sure the nomination went to Hillary Clinton: Asked Thursday by CNN’s Jake Tapper whether she believes that the Democratic campaign organization was tipped in favor of Clinton over her primary opponent, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Warren responded without hesitation: “Yes.” […] “But what we’ve got to do as Democrats now is we’ve got to hold this party accountable,” Warren said. The Massachusetts Democrat is seen as a possible presidential contender in 2020 and … Read entire article »

Media can’t stop dropping firecrackers down their own shorts trying to ‘get’ Trump

**Written by Doug Powers Trump hatred can cause some of his media critics to get so far out in front of their skis that they faceplant into the moon. Case-in-point, this GQ article in which the president was called out for what the article claimed in part was selective support for the death penalty after attacks. This has to be among my top five favorite corrections of all time: Edit: An earlier version of this article used a headline noting that Trump had publicly called for the death penalty in the New York attack, but not the Las Vegas shooting in particular. That discrepancy is probably related to the fact that the Las Vegas shooter is dead. We regret the error. Yeah, “probably.” Dramatization of another backfired media “gotcha” attempt on Trump: Here’s the bonus: … Read entire article »

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe stated that Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie has run “most racist campaign we’ve ever seen in Virginia history.” He also stated that the controversial ad depicting a truck with a Gillespie sticker chasing children was wrong, but Gillespie “has created this” by taking the campaign into the gutter.

Donna Brazile spills Dem Party’s beans while jumping ship

**Written by Doug Powers Former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile has rolled over on just about every major figure in the Democratic Party in excerpts from her new book, which Brazile hopes is sturdy enough to take shelter under as the Russia narrative collapses right on top of them. There’s also some unintentional humor in it all: Brazile: When I was asked to run the DNC, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign. https://t.co/ODpvvlS46j — … Read entire article »

Allahu-Akbar-itis: America’s deadly and debilitating disease

Allahu-Akbar-itis: America’s deadly and debilitating disease by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 “Shout ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.” Who knew hijacker Mohammed Atta’s parting words, discovered in his journal after the 9/11 attacks, would become a national punchline? The louder and more frequently jihadists around the globe shriek their signature battle cry, the more fervently multicultural apologists deny its meaning. They’ve transformed the Islamic supremacists’ obvious and explicit call for violence into a bland utterance of peace as indiscernible and nonsensical as “Aloha Snackbar.” With blood still fresh on the pavement in Manhattan after Monday’s outbreak of Allahu Akbar-itis that took at least eight innocent lives, Palestinian-American propagandist and Hamas cheerleader Linda Sarsour tweeted: “Every believing Muslim says Allahu Akbar every day during prayers. We cannot criminalize ‘God is … Read entire article »
