President Trump and CNN’s Jim Acosta are not pals.The two have clashed repeatedly in the past, and did so again on Tuesday as the president traveled through India, trailed by the U.S. press corps.Eventually in his 45-minute press conference, Trump called on Acosta, who asked: “Can you pledge to the American people that you will not accept any foreign assistance in the upcoming election?”“First of all, I want no help from any country,” Trump said, “and I haven’t been given help from any country and if you see what CNN, your wonderful network, said, I guess they apologized in a way for —

Marxists like Acosta have no shame for their constant lies. Democrats will take money from foreigners and anyone else. CNN and the media is anti-American.

It irritates me to no end to hear US reporters asking unrelated gotcha questions or questions intended to cause embarrassment during a press conference with a foreign leader. Its just downright disrespectful to the President, but embarrassing for the country, not to mention making the other leader uncomfortable. Save your ax grinding for American soil. Not for the entire world to see.

Jim Acosta wants to BE the story, not to actually report anything. He is a relentless self-promoter who's ego has no bounds. Trump should ignore him from now on.

CNN has some Bernie Bro type Jr staffers write up some creative fiction and some senior staffer that is functionally literate "edits" and finalizes the piece. Then a trained monkey news actor such as Acosta asks the "when did you stop beating your wife" Russia question. However the question is answered doesn't matter because the story has already been written according to CNN's Gramcian Marxist Democraptyk Style Book Standards. Wa Po and NYT follow up minutes later with own slightly edited version of the CNN story. This style of "journalism" is the known to common folks as the "Circle Jerk" style..

The conservative Family Research Council (FRC) is urging parents across the country to keep their kids home on Thursday, Feb. 27, a day that pro-LGBT activists and teachers will use to read pro-transgender books to children in some schools and libraries, a practice they want to establish as an annual event."Do you want your child to be psychologically manipulated at school on Thursday?

President Trump is opening 15 urban campaign field offices in an aggressive bid to improve his performance with black voters, who for decades have been an overwhelmingly Democratic constituency. Sleek and situated in retail shopping districts to generate foot traffic, this unique collection of regional “community centers” is a critical component of the Trump campaign’s multimillion-dollar strategy to double in 2020 the 8% support the president received from black voters nearly four years ago. Senior Trump campaign officials unveiled office design mock-ups and fresh “Black Voices for Trump” merchandise during a Wednesday briefing for reporters.“You’re never going to get the votes you don’t ask for,”

CHARLESTON, South Carolina — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would not answer a question during the Democrat debate Tuesday night about the U.S. embassy in Israel in Jerusalem — nor would her surrogates.The moderators asked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg whether they would move the embassy back to Tel Aviv, even though Israel considers Jerusalem its capital. Sanders said it was “something that we would take into consideration,” while Bloomberg — normally considered pro-Israel — said that while the embassy could not be moved again, the U.S. should have extracted concessions from Israel in return.

Most critics agree that George Orwell's 1984 is a supremely great novel. But is it suitable for teenagers? After all, this book is a grim portrayal of a totalitarian dystopia, and for many readers, it is a traumatic experience.Several years ago, I argued that 1984 is too deep, dark, and unpleasant for high school students. Let's protect them. Now the political atmosphere has shifted wildly. High school students praise socialism and even communism as if they know all about them. These kids don't need to be protected; they need to be educated.I believe that Orwell wrote his beautiful but terrifying book as

Heather Mac Donald is one of America’s great heroines. For no reason other than love of her country, Western civilization and common sense, she ventures repeatedly into the bizarre and hostile world of America’s colleges and universities. If students listened to her, they would learn a lot. Alas, most of them are not up to that task. Heather has often been subjected not just to rudeness, but to threats of violence. I can draw on my own experience here. Last year, my youngest daughter invited Heather to give a talk at her college.

While it may be true that “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” (Shakespeare) it is also true that socialism by any other name still smells like socialism. As we approach this year’s elections, the purveyors of socialism have tried to rebrand their product by calling it “democratic socialism.” The sales force and marketing department of democratic socialism, the Democratic Party, and the mainstream media, are plying a new fairy tale that democratic socialism is nothing like socialism. No siree, nothing like it, they sing in chorus. The chorus, however, is badly out of tune. Democratic socialism is not the wonderland of inclusiveness,

Biden was asked how he would stop gun violence, with the moderator noting that “Congress has not been able to pass a major gun legislation in a quarter of a century.” The former vice president said that he is “the only one who ever got it done nationally” before making the false claim that 150 million people have been killed by guns since 2007. “One hundred fifty million people have been killed since 2007,

Even in California, you have to be 18 to get a tattoo, 16 to drive a car, 21 to buy a gun, alcohol, or pot. But if you want to change your gender? Well, then, you just have to be 12. And your public school will be more than happy to help. Need an abortion? Tell your teacher. Want to refill your birth control? Go to the school clinic. Thinking about starting hormone treatments? Your parents will never find out. At least, not under the policy the California Teachers Association is pushing. That’s the amazing revelation from last month’s union meeting.

The bill, called Assembly Bill 2826, was introduced by Assemblymember Evan Low, a Democrat from Campbell. According to Politico, retailers would be able to sell the same products, as long as they dedicate space where customers can find clothes and toys regardless of whether the items have been marketed to boys or girls. “Keeping similar items that are traditionally marketed either for girls or for boys separated makes it more difficult for the consumer to compare the products

Washington - President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat, as lawmakers called for giving disease fighters much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested. A day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S., Trump prepared to hold a White House press conference with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He tweeted that the CDC, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and others in the administration are “doing a great job with respect to Coronavirus!” and accused some news outlets of “panicking markets.”
