    What the hell is going on? I’ve only been skimming the news bc we’re on vacation. So Omrosa illegally tapes herself being fired and it gets twisted into that Kelly threatened her?

    Sometimes it seems worse to skip a few days of coverage as the evil that is the MSM is becomes even more glaringly obvious.

    Good grief. Even April Ryan is calling her a liar.

    More here:

    I don’t know what Omarosa did to call for her firing nor what legal trouble she is in now. However, one thing is for sure…

    She is toxic trouble, a liar, and a backstabber… and no one will ever hire her again for anything. Ever.

  6. This is no surprise but still sad. The race baiting was bad when Obama was in office. The media and uniparty repeatedly screaming we are deplorable racists for the last year and a half since HRC lost has only closed dialog between citizens with different political views. Obama wanted to destroy this country and did so for at least 100 years with respect to race relations.

    “Death of a Nation” – Interview of Dinesh D’Souza by Stefan Molyneux

    An excellent interview if you haven’t seen it yet.
    “Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right “by any means necessary.”

    “But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them? Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left?”

    “Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths. Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time?”

      Quit slandering the South. Lincoln only got 39% of the vote and supported a constitutional amendment – the Corwin Anendment – guaranteeing a protection of slavery. He invaded the South over money and preserving the geographic reach of the federal government. I do appreciate any propaganda that puts Leftist in a tough spot but as it relates to the civil war it is simply propaganda in this instance.



    “Flynn was bounced from the White House after just 24 days on the job, an event Trump has said was a consequence of Flynn’s lies to the FBI about his pre-inauguration contacts with a now-former Russian ambassador.

    Comey, however, has claimed the president asked him whether there was a FISA investigation into Flynn, and suggested he should go easy on the retired lieutenant general and consider ‘letting Flynn go.”

    There WAS (in effect) a FISA investigation into Flynn and everyone else surrounding the Trump campaign as a result of the Page Title I warrant and the two-hop rule.

      Is Maher just begging for attention and attacks? Is he trolling for the right to demand he be fired just as Roseanne was only to then get to point out that comparing a white woman to the planet of the apes v. a self identified black woman is different, thereby reminding everyone of Roseanne’s mistake? This could not have been an accident with as much coverage as Roseanne received!

        I have seen MIchele Bachman in person and she is beautiful. petite, elegant. Perhaps because she wouldn’t look at an ugly jerk like Maher with a pud for a nose twice is his problem. Or she got too close to the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the Obama admin, perhaps?

      Phoenix, James Woods is excellent at trolling, just like POTUS.

      Bill Maher can get away with calling Michelle Bachman from the Planet of the Apes because she’s pretty. Doesn’t look an ape. Everyone knows he is joking.

      Sadly, the same cannot be said for Valerie Jarrett.

      Once said, people look, and it is confirmed. Therefore, accuracy is not rewarded in these matters; consequently, Roseanne must be punished.

      Yes. It is upside-down world day.

    Remember the flap over “fake news” when the term was first coined in late 2016? The globalist power bases spewed reams and reams of articles frightening and advising the public how to “evaluate truthfulness” for months in early 2017. Much beard-stroking and “concern” — for the public’s good, of course.

    The Atlantic Council (NATO), proposed this:

    Voila! A year later, we have this:

    It’s noteworthy that Twitter spent its first ammo on people who debunk “RussiaRussiaRussia”: Alex Jones (who Hillary whined about, by name!, during the campaign) and Ron Paul associate Danial McAdams and writer Peter van Buren (not exactly household names!) The globalist establishment obviously has a lot hanging on the “RussiaRussiaRussia” fantasy – especially as Judicial Watch and the WH are bringing the truth to light about this recent “vast Left-wing conspiracy” (to deliberately mis-quote Hillary).

    I am watching Mark Levin on his show ‘Life, Liberty and Levin’ interviewing Dr. Pilsbury. He is a Carter throwback, who literally is confirming how he and the Carter Administration screwed up with China, admitting to being completely blindsided in all of China’s dealings. Now, the good Dr. is not sure if we, as a country, will survive this. And for years, he was the one screwing us up!!!!!!!

    Over and above the crap pulled with business, there are now over 300K Chinese students who are in schools in the US. He describes the scam, blackmail and other triggers China pulls with the schooling of these students. Jaw dropping.

    I could spit!!!!!!

    Hopefully, this episode willl be availble shortly.

      Yes, a must watch and a must read book by Dr Michael Pillsbury.
      He’s not a Carter throwback. He served Nixon, Regan, HW Bush.
      He was all for opening up to China 40 years ago along with Kissinger, et al but is trying to right that wrong by sounding the alarm.

        Thank you for the link. He does have respect for what President Trump is initiating, I must say.

        Pillsbury was a staffer on Senate Labor Committees when Carter was President. And he did advise Carter:

        “US–China military and intelligence ties Edit

        Pillsbury participated in President Jimmy Carter’s decision in 1979–80, as modified by President Reagan in 1981, to initiate military and intelligence ties with China.[2][3]”

        Pillsbury does acknowledge the mistakes made, though.

        The interesting difference in President Trump is that he has interacted for years with the Chinese and South Koreans on all business aspects. So, he knows intimately how the Chinese say one thing and then conquer their prey quietly.

        I am still astonished after having my own interaction with the Chinese in 1982, what fools we have all been. It was so obvious to me back then that my own firm was being manipulated, I would never trust an Asian perspective.
