On Thursday’s The Situation Room, CNN personalities were in overdrive throwing around accusations of racism toward Donald Trump’s base of support within the Republican party during a panel discussion. Senior political analyst Jeffrey Toobin repeated the recurring charge that “law and order” represents “code words for cracking down on African-Americans,” claimed Republicans are engaging in “voter suppression,” and accused Trump’s “base” of being “sick and tired of African-Americans trying to get political power in this country.”

Recalculating the Climate Math

Ominous!


sharia-ukBritain’s MI6 spy chief says Islamic terrorist threat is here to stay

The Islamist terrorist threat to the West will endure for years to come because simply taking back territory from Islamic State will not solve the deeper global fractures which have fostered militants, Britain’s foreign intelligence chief has said.

In his first public comments outside Britain, the head of the Secret Intelligence Service said globalization, the information revolution, a deepening sectarian divide in the Middle East and failed states would ensure that terrorism remained a threat.

deadvoters3Colorado Voter Fraud: Slew of Ballots Cast by the Dead Spark Investigation

Weird. We’re told voter fraud doesn’t exist. Colorado is an important swing state. I have a tiny feeling the “myth” of voter fraud isnt such a fantasy inevery swing state. I hope the Trump campaign will be aggressive in making sure the swing state elections are as fair as possible.

Keep in mind, stories like uncovering dead voting reveal just the tip of the iceberg.

does-the-truth-matterHeather MacDonald on Black Lives Matter: Does The Truth Matter?

Does the truth matter? Not to groups like Black Lives Matter.

That’s tragic for many reasons, not the least of which is that black lives are being lost as a result. When it comes to the subject of American police, blacks, and the deadly use of force, here is what we know:

Harvard economics professer Roland Fryer analyzed more than 1,000 officer-involved shootings across the country. He concluded that there is zero evidence of racial bias in police shootings.


shephen-kingMaster of horror fiction Stephen King says ‘Trump presidency scares me to death’

If there’s one man who would seem immune to fear, it’s Stephen King, the bestselling author and master of horror fiction.

But after more than 50 novels, hundreds of short stories and numerous film adaptations of his voluminous work, the 69-year-old still gets spooked.

“A Tump presidency scares me more than anything else,” King told Ron Charles, editor of The Washington Post’s Book World, during a Facebook Live interview Saturday. “I’m terrified that he’ll become president.”

King admitted that he’s already considered the possibility of moving to Canada to escape a Trump presidency because it “scares me to death.” It’s not far, he noted, from his home in Bangor, Me.

On behalf of a grateful alt-right nation, we thank you, O Canada. Heh heh.
