On December 14, 2017, “net neutrality” was repealed. The head of the FCC, Ajit Pai, received death threats for his approval of this move, and MSM news outlets and Democrats (but I repeat myself) screamed that “the internet as we know it would end.” As usual, they overplayed their hand with hysterical, overwrought drama rather than trying to persuade the public why Obama’s net neutrality rules should remain in place. Now, one year later: U.S. Internet Speeds are Skyrocketing Via Daily Caller. You might not have noticed it, but the internet as we knew it ended a year ago today, at least according to the predictive powers-that-be at CNN and other media organizations. That’s because on Dec. 14, 2017, the...

But aren’t these migrants seeking asylum because their lives are in danger? Does this mean their lives are worth $50,000 ? This is extortion. And chutzpah. Via Fox News. Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, which included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo...

Obama also meddled in the Israeli election in 2016, sending our taxpayer money to try to oust Netanyahu. Maybe Obama and Kerry can send James Taylor back to Paris to sing “You’ve Got a Friend” again. Via American Mirror. Democrats are okay with foreign meddling in elections when they do it. As France devolves into what some are saying could be a civil war in the streets of Paris, the French should recall who wanted them to elect Emmanuel Marcon in the first place: former U.S. president Barack Obama…. Here's why Obama thinks Macron should be France's next president. pic.twitter.com/H9vXiXgY6F — AJ+ (@ajplus) May 7, 2017

Tree in Durham’s Memorial Park No decorating a Christmas tree or placing a Chanukah menorah on public land. But a “winter carnival,” and changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day are no problem? Ok, got it. Via Western Journal. The Durham, New Hampshire, Human Rights Commission has recommended that the town cease its annual Christmas tree lighting tradition on public land out of concern it promotes the Christian faith at the exclusion of others. The commission was established by the town council for the purpose of eliminating “prejudice and discrimination because of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, place of birth, age, sex, sexual orientation, (and) gender identity,” among a multitude of other categories of people. The issue of...

Looks like Democrat Socialist “Star” Ocasio-Cortez ‘Don’t Know Much About History,’ or how government works…or math, or… But apparently, you don’t need to understand any math when you can sit on the House Finance Committee. Via Twitchy. Celebrity Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blatantly misrepresented this Nation article on Pentagon waste in an effort to make her Medicare-for-all affordable seem affordable: Wow. You claim $21 Trillion in Pentagon Waste? The entire Pentagon budget from 1789-2018 has totaled $18 trillion, Come on, This is embarrassing. https://t.co/ezdhqWQFyc — Brian Riedl (@Brian_Riedl) December 2, 2018 This is annoying because AOC is making a bad/self defeating argument for something I support. 1, "can't be audited because DOD is bad at accounting" is not the same...

Mika and Schmoe, er, Joe, “titans of journalism.” Yeah, no. Via CNS. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were quick to mock President Trump and Fox News after the midterms about the migrant caravan swarming to the U.S.-Mexico border, sarcastically remarking on Morning Joe that the story was overblown, had no legs, and was essentially an election stunt. However, there are 7,000-plus migrants now in Tijuana and Mexicali and more than 40 people attempted to breach a hole in the border fence yesterday and another 42 migrants were caught and arrested on U.S. soil…. It’s unlikely that MSNBC’s Mika and Joe will retract their doltish mockery of the caravan story. For the record, here is what these titans of journalism...

Well, now that a judge has ordered the Trump administration to reinstate Jimbo’s WH press pass, we can look forward to more of his “All About Me” narcissistic-nitwit acting-out, er, journalistic endeavors. Via Daily Caller. Members of the migrant caravan are currently trying to climb over the U.S.-Mexico border wall, despite CNN’s Jim Acosta’s claim that they would not “be doing that.” Last week during a testy exchange with President Donald Trump at a post-midterm press conference, Acosta debated the president on whether or not the migrant caravan is an “invasion.” The White House correspondent rejected the notion that members of the caravan would try to climb walls and fences to get into the United States as depicted in a...

Remember the U.N. warning last month, that we have only twelve years left before even a half degree of “global warming” will increase risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people ? Yeah, no Via IBD. Global Warming: Everyone makes mistakes, but some mistakes are bigger than others. That’s the case with a recent study based on a climate model that claimed the oceans had retained 60% more warming than previously thought. It made headlines around the world with its alarming conclusion. The study itself, by no fewer than ten authors, made sweeping claims. The authors wrote that the study held “implications for policy-relevant measurements of the Earth response to climate change, such as...

Remember when Sen. Kamala Harris said that Christine Blasey Ford “had nothing to gain” from her appearance at the Senate hearing? Via Washington Times. Christine Blasey Ford is no longer in the headlines, but she’s still collecting cash through GoFundMe accounts set up by friends and fans who wanted to show their support for her attempt to derail Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s path to the Supreme Court. As of Monday, more than $850,000 had been pledged to the two biggest online solicitations, with one of them, personally blessed by Ms. Blasey Ford, still raking in more than $4,000 over the weekend. The organizers of the funds have been strikingly secretive about their operations, declining to respond to messages about the...

Trump Derangement Syndrome now infects a Broadway musical revival. SAD! Via WSJ. The national tour of “Hello, Dolly!” just opened the second leg of its 10-month multicity run at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre. But the frothy, feel-good musical has turned into a whodunit. When “Dolly” premiered in 1964, its irresistible title song cemented composer-lyricist Jerry Herman as the heir apparent to Irving Berlin and Frank Loesser—king of musical-theater optimism. Mr. Herman went on to compose two other megahits, “Mame” and “La Cage aux Folles.” But “Dolly” put him on the map…. So it came as a shock when, barely seven minutes into a recent matinee performance, in the third verse of Dolly Levi’s first song, “I Put My Hand In,” I...

Justice Kavanaugh. The Democrats tried to destroy this man and his family. Thank God they failed, but only because the Republicans stood up for him. This revelation is another example of what Tuesday’s election is all about: rewarding those who are relying on threats, harassment, assault and lies in an effort to bully you into voting for them, or a vision focused on the economy and national security of this nation so the future is secure for your family. The foundation of my commentary during the Justice Kavanaugh hearings about the claims of sexual assault, was the politicizing of this issue would harm the issue as a whole. The entire Democrat Party circus essentially encouraged, invited and then elevated every...

And CNN top brass are probably scratching their heads over the October ratings, where Fox News tops CNN and MSNBC combined in October cable news ratings. Via Free Beacon. CNN anchor Don Lemon remarked in the same breath Monday night that people should not “demonize any one group” in America before saying the biggest terror threat in the country is “white men.”…. “I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent,” Lemon said. “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country...

This headline blared all over the internet this morning, on msn.com, USA Today, New York Daily News, the Hill, and other sites: Pittsburgh Jewish leaders tell Trump to stay away unless he denounces white nationalism But these so-called “Jewish leaders” are members of “Bend the Arc,” a leftwing fringe group funded by the son of George Soros. So, no, these are not “Jewish leaders of Pittsburgh.” Via Daily Wire. Over the weekend, the press began a narrative drumbeat suggesting that President Trump was somehow responsible for the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh on Saturday – the deadliest anti-Semitic shooting in American history. On Monday, key members of the press amplified that message by quoting supposed Pittsburgh Jewish leaders...

Shorter Stelter: Ignore any event that might reflect positively on Trump. Focus instead on Melania’s “I don’t care” jacket, Trump’s two scoops of ice cream.” And CNN wonders why they were beaten by SpongeBob SquarePants last week in the ratings. Via Political Insider. As you’ve undoubtedly heard, a caravan of 7,000 people is making its way to the U.S. after crossing various Central American countries. The caravan has now reached Mexico, and it’s unclear if the Mexican authorities will be able to prevent it from reaching America’s southern border. But it’s not that simple. On-the-ground reports from Fox News suggest that the caravan is transporting individuals from non-Central American countries, including people from other continents such as Africa and Asia…....

Fifteen years behind bars for accessory to murdering 2,997 people. Nice going, Germany. NOT. Via NY Post. That’s a real killer smile. A Moroccan man convicted of helping the 9/11 terrorists carry out their plot flashed a huge grin as he flew home a free man on Monday after being released early from his meager sentence in Germany. Mounir el Motassadeq was sentenced to just 15 years behind bars for accessory to murder in 2006, but received credit for time served after his initial arrest in 2001 — and was freed shortly before finishing even that stretch to be deported to his homeland. German courts ruled that he was part of the so-called “Hamburg cell” with ringleader Mohamed Atta and...
