Whether he’s studied them or not, President Trump is a master at cutting leftists down using the Rules for Radicals that Saul Alinsky drafted to help further a leftist agenda. At a press conference at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump showed his mastery of Rule 4 (“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules”), Rule 5 (“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon”), and Rule 6 (“A good tactic is one your people enjoy”). (snip) One of the reporters opened, not with a question, but with an accusation. “You said that the pandemic is disappearing, but we lost 6,000 Americans this week

After four years of sparring with the worst and dumbest that the MSM can send against him, President Trump has become their master. (If I can still use that word?) The harder they try the harder they fall and the ridicule the people have been showing for them has completely replaced any sort of respect or admiration. It is a profession of fools.

The arrogance and stupidity of the media is breathtaking. Every time one of them arrogantly confronts Trump they diminish themselves yet they keep throwing themselves into the buzzsaw. Of course, when they get back to their burrows, their fellow mice all squeak about how brave they were and how wrong the awful Orange Man was. If they are lucky they can get a dem to babble about Trump's hideousness as well. You would think they would get a clue from polls showing their credibility is plunging toward zero but they seem impervious to illumination so they continue to stumble around in the dark. The rest of us are laughing at the clown show. Further, with the media fawning over the dems, there is no self correction or accountability for dem idiocy. A reporter asked Nasty Pelousy a question she didn't like and she accused him of being a Republican stooge. That is destructive to both sides of the discussion, dems and media. Media is beaten into compliance and uselessness and dems continue on their rush toward the political wilderness. As the election approaches, it will become apparent how much a foolish and weak media will cost the dems. They will try to spin narratives supportive to dems and fail blatantly and to great embarrassment, even dragging the dems down with them.

It would have been appropriate for the president to walk down from his podium and mug the reporter, taking his cell phone and wallet. This way, there would have been no chance of spreading the China virus and all leftists would have been delighted.

We love this guy because he says what we all are either afraid to, are too shy to, or don't have the opportunity to say. The previous prez had his "phone and his pen." This guy has the nads and the nerve. Continue to shock them with the truth, Mr. President. They think they're deserving of respect which they haven't even come close to having earned.

Hillary Clinton’s loss of the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump was so traumatic for members of the Democrat elite that a form of PTSD appears to have taken hold, relegating all memory of the candidacy itself to amnesia. That’s the only plausible explanation for a stunning column published by one of the paper’s stars, Maureen Dowd, and then excerpted in a tweet, completely relegating the Clinton-Kaine ticket to the memory hole. (snip) She let them down so badly that she is, in effect, a nonperson, like one of Stalin’s purged officials, someone who never existed at all.

Joe Biden has been in Washington, D.C., since 1972. It’s therefore easy to go through his past stances on issues and use those issues against him now. Doing so creates one kind of Biden v. Biden campaign video. The GOP, however, has come up with a stunning and disturbing new kind of Biden v. Biden campaign video, one that compares the Biden of eight years ago to the Biden of today. (snip) The commercial doesn’t go back to Biden in 1972, when he was young, frisky, and assaulting female interns. All it needs to do is look at Biden in 2008.

Animals that are ambush hunters tend to be very still until they have their prey where they want them. Then, the ambush hunter is an explosion of efficient motion and the prey . . . well, the prey is toast. With Saturday’s executive orders and press conference, Trump proved himself to be a masterful ambush hunter, and the Democrats found themselves being hapless prey. As with so many of their initiatives in 2020, the Democrats got greedy. Time and time again, they’ve used the excuse of the Wuhan virus and George Floyd’s death to advance hard-left policies

On Tuesday night, President Trump announced that U.S. Attorney John Durham had uncovered “breathtaking” evidence about the “corrupt” Russia hoax. That might just have been Trump puffing, except for the fact that the Trump campaign also released a new video hinting that the Democrats, from Obama on down, are going to be in trouble. (snip) Keep in mind that Donald Trump ran a hugely successful reality show. He understands the importance of a narrative arc for any successful broadcast. If Durham’s report had broken six months ago, it would have been old news by the summer. Worse, the media would have explained away almost everything and deep-sixed what it couldn’t explain.

We are continually misled by progressive propaganda on the issue of race. Misinformation bleeds over to the conservative realm as well. (snip) Our Founders were born into a world they did not make. Inherited agricultural estates included slaves as property. Washington, Jefferson, and Madison detested the institution. Records of their writings and actions are clear on this. Washington freed his slaves upon the death of his wife. His will stipulated that those who were infirm or disabled were to be cared for by his estate. Efforts continued regarding abolition by the Founders. Their depth of character, persistence, and resolve on this issue is unassailable.

A year ago, a massive study of transgender surgeries in Sweden claimed that people with body dysphoria who had the surgery were psychologically more healthy than those who did not have surgery. The same journal that published that finding just retracted it. Over the years, in large part because I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, I met several people who had taken hormones and had surgery to turn themselves into a rough and stereotypical version of someone who was the opposite of their biological sex. Consistently, they were the most unhappy people I had ever met.

Those of us that care about actual justice can only view the newly leaked arrest video of George Floyd in one way: damning to the media narrative. A viewing of the video reveals that the events leading up to Floyd's unfortunate, entirely avoidable death are not as they initially seemed, and its release is nothing short of tossing a massive wrench into the agenda-driven gears of media and political discourse. The four officers might well be guilty of something, but the current second-degree charge of murder is not one of them. The political overreach in the case will cause nothing short of absolute chaos

Former CIA Director John Brennan appears to have dodged prosecution in U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation. After NBC News reported Thursday that Brennan agreed to do an interview with Durham, signaling that his investigation is nearing its end, a lawyer familiar with the situation told NPR that the Obama-era CIA director has been told he is not a target of prosecutors. Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration

While Chicago's beaches remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, dozens of people gathered in an area near the city's Montrose Beach Saturday, prompting criticism from Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Lightfoot posted a social media showing several individuals, many of them who appeared to not be abiding by social distancing guidelines, in a grassy area near boat docks.

Hillary Clinton leveled a jocular broadside against New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd on Saturday, pointing out that the writer appeared to forget wholesale that Clinton chose a man to run as her vice president during the 2016 election. Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
