Media imply Trump to blame for Olympian’s detention; Obama did it

media falsehood detained Olympian

Backlash against media’s falsehood on the detained Olympian was predictable. (Via Twitter)

In the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s travel ban applying to a small number of Muslim majority countries, an Olympian stepped forward to share her tale of detention at a US airport.

Ibtihaj Muhammad, an avid devotee of the patriarchal hijab for Muslim women, gave media the impression she might have been detained because of Trump’s ban.

Turns out she either had a memory lapse or she deliberately falsified information. Media didn’t bother to ask questions although they certainly should have.  Continue reading

Among reactions to Flynn resignation: Col. Peters wants Graham for replacement

Bizarre pronouncements and apparent amnesia related to President Barack Obama’s activities are emerging with the resignation of a top Trump appointee.

President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of Michael Flynn who had served as lieutenant general in the US Army and in various intelligence capacities in the administration of President Barack Obama. Flynn is a Democrat who supported Trump during the presidential campaign.

Imagine my shock when I heard another Army vet, Ralph Peters (lieutenant colonel), declare to a Fox News host this morning there’s a perfect replacement for Flynn:  Senator Lindsey Graham! I remember Peters’ support for the war in Iraq undertaken by Republican president George W. Bush. I also remember Peters calling President Obama a “pussy” and getting a fast suspension from Fox News because of it.

But the plot is way thicker than Peters’ enthusiasm for a neocon anti-Trumper.  Continue reading

After US Dept. of Education secretary Betsy DeVos was sworn in, one of the first schools she tried to visit was Jefferson Middle School Academy. DeVos was met by a swarm of protesters.

How many of those protesters were parents of students at the school?  Continue reading

Mexico presidential wannabe to head to US and wave giant double standard

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will head to the United States soon with one thing on his mind. President Elect Donald Trump. Lopez Obrador apparently will seek votes from citizens of Mexico who live in the United States. He is the leftist poised to become Mexico’s next president.

I seriously doubt a single member of US media will call Lopez Obrador out for the giant double standard he is waving as he attempts to chat up “migrants”. The candidate has accused Trump of “poisonous rhetoric” said Agence France Presse.

Now about that double standard. Continue reading

‘Dangerous ruling’ begs question: Was Trump set up?

Consider the bias and addled reasoning of a federal judge, well-organized ‘protests’ kicking in before the ink was dry on a presidential executive order, and the lack of preparation on the part of a Department of Justice attorney, and it is almost impossible not to conclude the undoing of a national security order was a setup.

Following developments related to President Donald Trump’s Executive Order ‘Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States’, I realized Trump was most definitely handicapped. Because his nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, was stymied by leftists in Congress, defense of the president’s executive order would be in the hands of attorneys who were likely not fans of the president or his policies.

What do we know about the attorney who handled the government’s argument?  Continue reading

Booker, Warren likely have eye on White House 2020

Sen. Sessions questioned Loretta Lynch

You don’t have to look hard to find two senators, Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), in the media spotlight these days.  New York’s US senator Chuck Schumer (D) is in the media a lot too, but he’s always been addicted to publicity. If ever there was a mic hound besides Arizona Republican senator John McCain, that would be Schumer.

I’m not the only one who thinks Booker and Warren are eyeing the White House for a 2020 run.

I’m not alone in thinking both senators will have to deal with some issues of their own.

Does Ninth Circuit realize judge who ordered halt to Trump EO is guilty of ‘alternative facts’?

Pres. Trump

After eight years of ignoring ‘alternative facts’ distributed by the administration of President Barack Obama, the left has discovered them now that President Donald Trump has taken office. Before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard testimony about Trump’s executive order freezing entry to the US from seven nations where anti-American terrorism is a problem, federal Judge James Robart (Washington State) came up with some astounding ‘alternative facts.’

If Americans are harmed because of this judge’s stay, will critics say, “The judge lied; people died?”   Continue reading
