A Bit More on Media Sycophant McCain

How soon McCain forgot that the press turned on him as soon as he was running for President against  the black guy. They would have turned on him anyway, in favor of any Democrat. Trump is openly criticizing the media to its face. Obama was undermining and, at times illegally, using the massive power of government to silence the media he didn't like. McCain is still the fool and he always has been. m/r

Where was McCain when Obama attacked the free press?

By Monica Showalter  February 19, 2017

Senator John McCain poured it on for the press at a Munich defense conference Saturday, warning in a veiled attack on President Trump that attacks on the press are a leading danger for democracy. “That's how dictators are made!” he shrieked. It was rich stuff, given that most of his European listeners do not have the same wide press freedoms found in the states. But more to the point, it was McCain up to his old tricks: Ingratiating himself to the anti-Trump press by playing its champion, in a bid to be the media's darling.
What stands out here is the hypocrisy of his claims. He's suddenly concerned about press freedoms and dictators?
Where was McCain when President Obama was systematically violating press freedoms every which way to Tuesday?
Seven examples of Obama's attacks on a free press spring to mind and not one of them drew any significant criticism from McCain.
Where was McCain when Fox News correspondent James Rosen was illegally followed around by Obama's Department of Justice in 2013 over a story he published on North Korean activities? It was a clear-cut example of reporters just doing their jobs, even as someone in government was leaking the story, but Team Obama went after Rosen with the Espionage Act. ...

Why the Persistent "Never Trumpers"? Is there some hidden force that energizes and funds it?

Outwardly, Trump is brash and over the top. That's what was needed to win. The old boy, GOP, Country Club, "low energy" Republicans, who refused to dirty their hands, weren't cutting it.
But their seems to be some deep insidious force that has latched onto the prominent GOP political class. It is always anti-Trump. The old boy Republican Congressmen are, for the most part, suppressing it for the time being. Their need is to be re-elected, but the beltway punditry are another, inexplicable story. What gives with their persistence in wanting to continue down their, well worn, losing path. m/r

Democrats’ Real Global Warming Fraud Revealed

By Dennis T. Avery  February 18, 2017

The Democrats are devastated by their recent lost elections.  They will be even more devastated as we learn the details of their massive global warming fraud.
Dr. John Bates, a former high level NOAA scientist, set off a furor by revealing that a recent NOAA paper, which claimed global warming hadn’t “paused” during the past 20 years, was fraudulent. The paper was timed to undergird Obama’s signing of the hugely expensive Paris climate agreement.
This is only a tiny fraction of the climate fraud.
Fortunately, high-tech research has finally sorted out the “mystery factor” in our recent climate changes—and it’s mostly not CO2.  Even redoubling carbon dioxide, by itself, would raise earth’s temperature only 1.1 degree.  That’s significant, but not dangerous.
CERN, the world’s top particle physics laboratory, just found that our big, abrupt climate changes are produced by variations in the sun’s activity.

Angela Merkel says Europe must take MORE refugees and Islam 'isn't source of terror'

GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel has launched a staunch defence of her refugee policy.

                         By Jeremy Culley /
The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq.
She also said Islam "is not the cause of terrorism" and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.
In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.

McCain, as always, is the Media and Global Elite SUCK-UP!

It's ironic that McCain made his speech at the "Munich Conference". This was the same name and place where Neville Chamberlain capitulated.

Not to mention that McCain's full of baloney. He's tiresome and long overdue to retire. Always the press' and elitist's sycophant to the detriment of US! m/r

John McCain just systematically dismantled Donald Trump’s entire worldview

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard.
During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump's worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn't mention Trump's name once, but he didn't have to.

The Age of Civilizational Self-Loathing

On the Air  

This week Mark swung by The Seth & Chris Show for a wide-ranging discussion with Chris Buskirk on the state of America and the world. Among the big issues they chewed over was education:
'With a lot of the malign social trends in the world—when you talk about, you know, the socialization of healthcare or whatever—Canada and Western Europe are often years ahead of where the United States is. In the corruption of education, America is actually the pacesetter..'
We are doing an an "affirmatively bad job" of educating the next generation, Steyn said, because it's not just that our children are ignorant of the glories of Western civilization, it's that we are actually teaching them to hate those things.

Why do we have to be subjected to CNN in all the Airports and Hotels?

CNN and the NY Times treat US as stupid and call US racists. Then they lie about Trump by constantly calling him a liar. m/r

Why the Media’s Trump Lie Machine is Failing

No one believes the media anymore.

49% of voters believe that Trump and his people are telling the truth. Only 39% believe that the media is.
The media’s war on President Trump isn’t hurting him. It is destroying the media’s own credibility.
After Trump’s win, the media came to the conclusion that its biased attacks on him had been too subtle and understated to connect with the “dumb” voters. So it decided to be far more overt about its smears.
The New York Times, which used to be the best at disguising its biases in the omnipotent voice of professional journalism, called President Trump a liar in its headlines.  The media cheered this descent into naked partisanship by the paper of record. But it didn’t hurt Trump. It hurt the Times.
Headlines blasting President Trump as a “liar” are easy enough to find on the internet.

Ann Coulter: Silence Of The Lambs: Why Doesn’t Congress Just Pass 2015 Anti-Refugee American SAFE Act Again?

Ann Coulter   February 15, 2017

 Let’s compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done.
In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things.
(And still our hero finds time to torment the media with his tweets!)
What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?
