Army? Caravan? How about the “M” word? Fox News headline: Via Daily Caller. The Associated Press on Sunday changed a headline after a backlash from liberals furious at the AP for describing a caravan of illegal immigrants heading towards the United States as an “army of migrants.” “A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US,” read the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word “army” with “caravan.” Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants — including nurses and political activists — many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline. “This is not only incorrect,...

If this is true, the tide may be shifting. Mobs can only be pushed back when regular citizens have had a enough. Let’s hope we see this more often. Via Fox News. A small group of angry diners confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a restaurant Friday night, but were met with calls from other customers to leave the Kentucky Republican alone. Video obtained by TMZ shows at least one diner berating McConnell on issues such as Social Security at a restaurant in Louisville. The video starts with him yelling at McConnell and arguing with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — to whom McConnell is married. The outlet reported that four men first confronted McConnell. “Oh yeah, why don’t you...

So, when St. Lawrence University gave Senator Susan Collins an honorary degree last year in recognition of her lack of support for GOP attempts to repeal Obamacare, this “had nothing to do with partisan politics.” But now that Collins voted for Justice Kavanaugh, these academics want the honorary degree revoked, but this too has nothing to do with partisan politics? Ok, got it. Via CBS News. Alumni and faculty at the alma mater of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, are calling on university officials to rescind an honorary degree awarded to her as punishment for voting to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. More than 1,800 alumni and dozens of faculty at St. Lawrence University are sending letters...

Did these academics all get Ph.D.’s in Stupid ? Have they never heard of Venezuela? As reported in Business Insider, in 2017, Venezuela’s economy was 35% smaller than it was in 2013 in terms of gross domestic product and 40% lower in GDP per capita terms. Now, people are starving, medicine is scarce, and classrooms are nearly empty as their crippling economic crisis that has left many families unable to afford supplies or provide their children with enough food to focus on schoolwork. But: “Wealth Distribution”… Or something. Via Daily Caller. More than 200 academics signed onto a public letter calling on governments to eschew economic growth in order to plan for a “post-growth economy” based on wealth redistribution. “For...

In case you missed it or would like to see it again, here is Tuesday night’s Hannity segment about the Democrats’ purely political hatchet job on Judge Kavanaugh. This is not a search for the truth, it’s the search for destruction.

Now that all the problems in the world have apparently been solved, P&G can focus on “gender inclusivity” cartoon characters on diapers. But maybe they need to re-think putting pictures of cameras on diapers. Just a suggestion. Via NY Post. The characters from “Sesame Street” are quietly getting pulled from Pampers — and it might be because they’re mostly dudes. In a major move this summer that hasn’t been officially announced, the world’s biggest diaper brand has quietly wiped characters like Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch from most of its diapers….. If P&G and “Sesame Street” are scrambling to address complaints about gender, few of them appear to have surfaced publicly. Meanwhile, the quiet, seismic shift...

Leftists love to claim that their half-baked, ill-advised ideas are…“for the children.” But child experts advise that young children should not have too many toys at one time, and parents should leave out only a few for the children to choose from. And, as The Telegraph reports, child psychologist Dr Aric Signman notes that children do not benefit from a lot of variety, and the show’s appeal to kids might be lost. But Progressives will be happy… because: Diversity! Via Telegraph. Since its creation in 1946 by British clergyman Wilbert Audry, Thomas the Tank Engine has charmed generations of children, imparting gentle wisdom while keeping alive the romantic nostalgia of British railways…. In a nod to the realities of cultural...

Several weeks ago, a friend sent me an email with a column from the New York Times. Two columnists, Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond, who, for some reason I have never figured out, call themselves “The Sugars,” write a “Dear Abby”- type advice column, and host a “Dear Sugars” podcast. After reading the question posed to the, um, “Sugars,” I fired back this email: “Seriously? This question is so over-the-top ridiculous, it looks to me like a hoax.” To which my friend responded, “You say that because you still can’t believe there are liberals out there who are that stupid.” Besides, she added, the columnists took the question very seriously. To which I replied, “Just shows how dumb the columnists...

And he thinks there is “something fundamentally immoral and wrong” about a nation where there are some very wealthy people. Because…redistribution of wealth! However, since the median income of the typical Vermont family is approximately $51,000, and Bernie made $1.7M on his socialist revolution books, and he owns three homes, will there be some sort of redistribution of his wealth? Via Free Beacon. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) complained Wednesday the media “makes a bigger deal” than it should about the modern debate between socialism and capitalism. Appearing on “CBS This Morning” following his Democratic primary victory in Vermont, Sanders was asked by co-host John Dickerson about the appeal of democratic socialism to younger party members. Young democratic socialists like...

If you dare disagree with a Democrat, you are wrong and must be punished. Democrat Party needs to be renamed what they are quickly becoming: The Fascist Party. Via Fortune. The mayor of a prominent Boston suburb says he will boycott the city’s most famous beer after the co-founder of Samuel Adams creator Boston Beer Co. praised President Donald Trump’s tax plan. Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone made the declaration via Twitter Sunday, after learning that Jim Koch, chairman of Boston Beer and whose grandfather created the recipe for Samuel Adams Boston Lager, had joined other business leaders for a dinner with Trump on August 7…. “American brewers make the best beer in the world,” Koch said. “And the tax reform...

Really, Chris? Because Tammy has a few things to say about your latest, um, commentary: Fox News — Tammy Bruce: For CNN, anyone on the left is ‘anti-hate’ — even violent masked mayhem-driving thugs Via Real Clear Politics. CNN’s Chris Cuomo argued Monday night Antifa protesters are wrong to hit people, police, and reporters, “but fighting hate is right” and in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, “those who oppose it are on the side of right.” Cuomo said “all punches are not equal morally” when it comes to bigots. However, he acknowledged that two punches are actually equal “in the eyes of the law.” “People who show up to fight against bigots are not to be...

Melania’s parents have been living in the U.S. as permanent residents for over a decade. But that fact did not stop the Washington Post from citing unnamed “experts” who claim that “most likely,” they benefited from “chain migration” that President Trump opposes. Isn’t that what’s known as Fake News? Via BizPac Review. Thursday morning in New York City, first lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs, took their citizenship oath and were subsequently sworn in as American citizens. Shortly thereafter, all hell broke loose on social media. Why? Because of liberals. Liberals of all colors and stripes promptly rushed to social media Thursday afternoon to accuse Melania’s parents of cheating their way to citizenship. Their proof? Anonymous sources cited...

Interesting connection, as Alaska has the second highest suicide rate of all the states. And Alaska is also the warmest. Oh wait, Alaska is actually the coldest state. Never mind. Via NewsBusters. Watch out! Climate change is not only killing polar bears; it is killing humans. The liberals have discovered a new scare tactic to push their climate control agenda and now are saying that increase in temperature leads to increase in suicide. The Atlantic posted an article concerning this topic on July 23 claiming “unusually hot days have profound effects on mental health and human physiology.” This assertion was based on a report by Nature Climate Change, a monthly journal dedicated to writing on “underlying causes or impacts of...

Yes, the Left can easily win elections… with open borders, flooding the USA with illegal aliens, offering them free stuff, and allowing them to vote – no ID required. Memo to Alexandria: Please keep talking, you are exposing more about the malevolent agenda and the ignorance of the left than anyone on the right could ever do. Via American Mirror. Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently explained how the far left can copy her strategy for success, and it has nothing to do with convincing voters to support her bright “new” ideas. Essentially, the woman Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez calls the “future” of the party wants to create new voters who align with her “progressive” politics – the same...

I’m trying to follow the “logic” here, but… what? How about: We need safe borders. Period. And let the Europeans determine their own fate. Albright is promoting her new book: Fascism: a Warning. She tells the interviewer that fascism is “hard to define,” but offers this definition: “a fascist leader is someone who identifies himself with one group, tribal of some kind, in order to really isolate and insulate the people who are disagreed with” Ok, Madeleine: here’s a better one: A fascist is a follower of a political philosophy characterized by authoritarian views and a strong central government — and no tolerance for opposing opinions. Sounds very much like the Democrat Party of 2018. Via Breitbart. Clinton-era Secretary of...
