Earlier today, the DNC filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s campaign, WikiLeaks, and Russia, alleging a “conspiracy” to influence the 2016 presidential election.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez claims in the lawsuit there was an “unprecedented” effort from the Trump campaign to collude with WikiLeaks and the Russian government to defeat Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to Fox News.
The “unprecedented” reason is nothing more than the latest stunt from democrats who cannot fathom that Trump is the duly elected president.
The lawsuit alleges WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, stole the documents and emails from the DNC on behalf of the Russian government. It then claims WikiLeaks and Russia worked with the Trump campaign through back-channels to undermine Clinton’s campaign, which is why they claim she lost.
Now, Trump is responding in an unexpected way. Not only is he welcoming the lawsuit, but he’s OVERJOYED by it!
Here’s what he just tweeted moments ago:
Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.
“Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Wendy Wasserman Shultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton emails.”, Trump tweeted.
In short, Trump can now counter-sue to get the documents that HE wants to see! As always, President Trump is the perfect “counter puncher”, and we can’t wait to see what comes out of this.
Are you excited to see what measures the Trump lawyers will take to get back at the DNC? Comment below…
Fresno State University professor Randa Jarrar mocked the death of Barbara Bush, and then bragged that she can say whatever she wants and not be fired because she has tenure. She was proven to be sorely mistaken.
“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with your nice words. PSA: either you are against these pieces of s**t and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. That’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million Iraqis have,” tweeted Jarrar.
Then she bragged “I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired. I will always have people wanting to hear what I have to say.”
“This was beyond free speech. This was disrespectful. A professor with tenure does not have blanket protection to say and do what they wish. We are all held accountable for our actions,” responded Fresno State president Joseph Castro.
“Does tenure mean that you technically cannot be fired? The answer to that is no. You can be fired,” said Fresno State’s Chief Academic Officer, Lynnette Zelezny. Ouch.
When Parkland student turned anti-gun activist David Hogg initially instigated the boycott against Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her advertisers, he was coordinating with the George Soros funded organization of Media Matters. This particular organization has been trying to shut down Fox News for years. Nineteen advertisers pulled their ads from the show, but one advertisers who did not was “My Pillow.”
My Pillow didn’t just not pull their ads, but a CEO of the company explained that they continue to have strong support for both “The Ingraham Angle” as well as Fox News in general, and would not be taking part in any kind of boycott.
The tweet ticked off boycotters even more, but they began asking other liberals to join the boycott by using the new hashtag, #BoycottMyPillow.
My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell says his company’s pillow sales remain “strong” after bucking the David Hogg-led boycott of Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
“MyPillow sales are strong. I am blessed to have loyal customers and grateful for all the support,” Lindell said in a Monday statement to The Daily Caller.
Conservatives proved that they had money and some power to buy too. Lindell was supported by many conservative Americans who took to social media to explain that they would be purchasing his products because of his stance on the boycott. One customer explained, “I just called the 800 number 2 hours ago and bought My Pillows, and congratulated the company for not bowing down to liberal lunacy. I told them that standing up and keeping My Pillow ads on Ingraham’s show was the reason I finally decided to buy from them. Another customer wrote, “A man who actually has the courage to publicly stand by his convictions! Time to buy yet one more My Pillow.” Another customer stated, “Just bought 2 more….thanks for keeping the sanity alive.”
It’s looking like the boycott has died off too. Ingraham came back to work on Monday evening, and it was pretty evident that she had beat the boycott.
The Washington Times reported that during Ingraham’s week-long vacation, things seemed to cool off. The Washington Times wrote, “The number of companies saying they would not advertise on her show, at 19, according to a count by Media Matters for America, slowed to a trickle while she was away.”
Ingraham’s bosses at Fox voiced their support for their employee. She also found backing in an unexpected place on Friday night from liberal talk show host Bill Maher.
While Maher is obviously a liberal, he stated that the effort to censor people when it comes to political thought by going after their advertisers was obviously wrong. Fox News President Jack Abernathy’s statement explained his support for Laura Ingraham and his anger against the effort to shut down the news network. He stated, “We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.”
Comedian Amy Schumer condemned the National Rifle Association and gun-rights activists for “killing children” during her speech at the March for Our Lives protest in Los Angeles on Saturday.
“Because we know it’s hard and we know they will twist our words and laugh at us and lie and lie and lie and lie and lie,” Schumer said, according to the Daily Beast. “How do they sleep at night? You are killing children.”
The actress said the activists will be mocked as “Hollywood liberals” for attending the rally, but they are doing their part “to keep our children alive.”
Acknowledging that becoming politically active might mean that she will “sell half as many tickets” to her stand-up shows, she took a jab at politicians who accept donations from the NRA.
“You see that, politicians?” she snarked. “You can make a little less money and be able to look at yourself in the mirror with no blood on your hands.”
Schumer became an outspoken voice in favor of gun control after a gunman killed two people at a Louisiana movie theater during a screening of her movie “Trainwreck” in 2015.
Former President Barack Obama talked about his future plans for his post-presidency life at a conference Sunday in Japan, addressing how he might shape “a million” new, young leaders in his mold.
The wide-ranging discussion repeatedly touched on the Obama Foundation’s efforts to engage the digital space to help young people in the U.S. and across the world get connected.
“If I could do that effectively, then — you know — I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas,” Obama said. “Or, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress.”
During the discussion, Obama acknowledged the great potential that young people have in making a difference, pointing to the March for Our Lives anti-gun violence demonstrations, led by high schoolers, in Washington, D.C., and around the globe. He also knocked “old men” in power.
“A lot of our problems are caused by old men. No offense, men, who are old,” he quipped.
The former president bemoaned the current news and social media environments in which people are too easily able to find news that fits their personal narratives and signaled that he is seeking a way to create a more productive forum.
“One of the things we’re going to be spending time on, through the Foundation, is finding ways in which we can study this phenomenon of social media and the Internet to see are there ways in which we can bring people from different perspectives to start having a more civil debate and listen to each other more carefully,” Obama said.
Obama was in Japan following stops in New Zealand and Australia. His week-long trip also includes a stop in Singapore.
Just hours ago Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from Donald Trump Jr.
The couple issued a joint statement:
“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
The president’s daughter-in-law made the filing.She will not contest custody of their five kids.
The New York Post’s Page Six first revealed Vanessa and Don Jr., both 40, were having marital problems yesterday:
“Donald Trump Jr. and his wife, Vanessa Trump, are struggling through marital problems and friends say they are heading for divorce, multiple sources have exclusively confirmed to Page Six.
“Vanessa and the eldest son of President Donald Trump married in November 2005 and have five children. But while they have not legally separated, friends say they have been living separate lives.”
It appears that the incessant witch-hunt being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller is taking its toll on the president’s family.
The Post said that a friend had told them that “Vanessa is by nature is a very low-key person, and she is uncomfortable with the attention her family is getting now that the Trumps are on the world stage. She is also worried for her kids, particularly after she received the threatening letter containing the white powder.”
In February, Vanessa had been taken to a hospital after she opened a letter addressed to Don Jr., that had been mailed to their Manhattan home.The envelope contained white powder and a letter that read:
“You are an awful person.This is why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the f— up.”
While the powder proved to be nothing more than a prop her friend was quoted as saying:“It was terrifying for Vanessa, who is naturally worried for the safety of her children.”
Dirty F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who oversaw the destruction of evidence to hide the depth of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, has been fired.
Calls for McCabe’s firing had been coming from Trump loyalists for some time but the final nail in McCabe’s coffin was the findings of Inspector General Michael Horowitz who came to the conclusion that McCabe’s violations were so egregious that criminal charges should follow.
The Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) – composed of fellow FBI agents – joined I.G. Horowitz in calling for McCabe’s ouster just hours before he was set to retire.
The OPR usually protects their own so this is a stunning development coming as McCabe was readying himself to start receiving his cushy pension.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the announcement only moments ago.His statement began:
“The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standands of honesty, integrity, and accountability.As the OPR proposal stated, “all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.
“Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”
As shocking as this development is, it will almost assuredly prove to be just the tip of the iceberg and is sending shockwaves through everyone associated with McCabe including the highest levels of the Obama administration.
Last month co-host of The View, Joy Behar, upset a good amount of the 2.18 billion people in this world by saying, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct,” when she was referring to a comment made on “Big Brother” by the former Trump aid and The Apprentice contestant who lost twice Omarosa Manigault.
Although after the initial outrage and some good old-fashioned shareholder panic Joy Behar called Mike Pence to apologize to him. Of course, Pence was gracious and accepted her forced apology. But at this week’s shareholders meeting a source told Fox News that it was mentioned that although Pence did accept her apology, who also urged Behar to do the same to the millions of Christians who were offended by apologizing on her show.
When this whole incident went down, it was reported that ABC had received at least 30,000 calls since the Media Research Center began a campaign to hold “View” co-hosts accountable for spewing “anti-Christian bigotry.” And it was later confirmed that ABC had received a total of 30,588 calls in only one day and angry viewers also reached out to the chat show’s advertisers which include Clorox, Gerber, Oreo and Home Advisor. According to Media Research Center (MRC), the advertisers have received no fewer than 6,000 calls. I had no idea so many people watched The View.
“Ask them if they support the anti-Christian statements being made on The View and suggest their advertising dollars would be better spent elsewhere.
The MRC’s Grassroots Army has bombarded ABC President James Goldston with nearly 40,000 phone calls and The View’s advertisers almost 13,000 times demanding an apology for the blatant anti-Christian remarks by The View’s Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin. Instead of an apology, Behar said she was “joking.”
It’s time to hold The View’s advertisers responsible for supporting a show that endorses anti-Christian bigotry.
“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong. It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
Vice President Mike Pence
On Tuesday, February 13th, ABC’s The View took the liberal media’s pronounced bias against Christianity to the next level and made vicious and offensive remarks about Christians and, in particular, the faith of Vice President Mike Pence.
Liberal co-host Sunny Hostin used her platform to call Vice President Pence’s Christian faith “dangerous.” Ms. Hostin went on to mock him, saying, “I’m a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my Vice President, um — speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”
Joy Behar (who has a history of making deeply obnoxious statements about Christians and conservatives) responded, “That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.”
Despite the fact that there are more than 280 million Christians in the United States, the liberal media have long made Christians the targets for their hateful and dangerous religious bigotry.
In his open letter to ABC President James Goldston, MRC President Brent Bozell highlighted previous examples of ABC’s anti-Christian attitude. These included:
On a June 1, 2017 episode of the The View, the entire lineup “blamed” Christians for taking away free contraception, likening Christianity to the Taliban: “You can’t hide behind religion to restrict other people’s rights!” host Jedediah Bila slammed. “You’re almost punishing us for having ovaries,” fellow host Sara Haines added. Joy Behar asked, “How is it different from the Taliban?” adding, “Let’s not forget they are trying to keep women in their place, barefoot and pregnant.” On July 12, 2017, ABCNews.com reported on a Jeff Sessions speech to the Alliance Defending Freedom with the following headline: “Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ but DOJ won’t release his remarks.” The “hate-group ” designation for the ADF comes from the highly partisan Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The shocking thing is that ABC News took that incredible charge from the SPLC for granted, and used it to trash both ADF and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The ABC show Good Christian Bitches, which aired in 2012, portrayed Christians as superficial, carnal, shallow hypocrites. Unfortunately, while the show changed its name to GCB, it never stopped its lewd and offensive caricatures of Christianity. This behavior is not only repulsive but also wildly hypocritical. The hosts of The View and everyone at ABC would denounce any disparaging comments about Islam. However, their tolerance never seems to extend to Christianity.
Enough is enough! We will no longer tolerate such blatant attacks on Christianity by ABC or any other major media outlet. This issue must be taken seriously. It’s time to make it clear that this bigotry is unacceptable.”
It’s nice to see the American Right fighting back finally. After so many decades of being on the defense, it’s about time we go on offense. Every time any of the pundits on our side say something the left doesn’t agree with they start a campaign to boycott while we on the right surrender to them. But since the right is now seeing how the left has been reacting to President Trump and the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” they have shown after being 100% mute during all the times Barack Obama displayed his obvious anti-Americanism and spat on our constitution, we have finally said “enough.”
Since left-wing celebrities are getting nervous as they see that their movies, music, and awards shows are garnering only a small portion of the viewers they enjoyed just 2 decades ago. In order to get a headline, the far left loon so-called celebrity Rosie O’Donnell took it upon herself to go after NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch on Twitter by tweeting a sermon of sorts against both her and the organization she represents. The NRA, or as Rosie wrote “NHA.”
Here’s Rosie’s first tweet, which was shown to Loesch by her followers
But of course, because President Trump branded Rosie best, she did what any disgusting person would do. She started tweeting attacking Loesch but only doing so after Rosie had blocked her so she couldn’t see or respond to the tweet. Rosie must know Loesch is way above her IQ level so she was trying to attack under the cloke of a blocked.
So then the argument started even though Rosie had Loesch still blocked.
Yup, Rosie is this stupid, and she thought she could stand toe to toe with Dana!
Will some liberal, any liberal, please explain to me how an organization who teaches hundreds of thousands of people a year how to use a firearm correctly and safely can be considered a terrorist organization? And the worst part if these are the same people who are ok with not calling Muslim Terrorism by its name.
While the liberal left defends every person on death row and every radical Islamic terrorist they attack us law-abiding members of the NRA. No NRA member has ever been accused of any mass shooting anywhere, in fact, the large majority of mass shootings are done by people who are to the left on the political spectrum.
Dana Loesch has had enough of these leftists spewing their hate towards the wrong people and has now announced she will be having a new show on NRATV starting this month. And she has sent a warning to the fake news mean stream media.
“To every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents…Your Time is running out. The clock starts now." –@DLoesch#Oscars90pic.twitter.com/SDVjeTxyfB
“It was an Oscar do-over last night for host Jimmy Kimmel, producers Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd and Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Following last year’s Envelopegate, which led to Beatty and Dunaway inadvertently announcing a wrong Best Picture winner, the quartet’s second go-round went without a hitch.
RelatedOscars TV Review: Jimmy Kimmel Ignores Trump, Hollywood Survives Just Fine
But the good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’s ceremony, which aired live from 8 PM-11:54 PM EST, averaged 26.5 million viewers (Live+same day). That was down 19% from last year’s 32.9 million viewers, a nine-year low.
That, despite the fact that The Shape of Water was the the highest-grossing Best Picture winner in five years.
The Oscar ratings doom and gloom was foreshadowed by the first numbers to come in this morning. The ceremony drew a paltry 18.9 Live+Same Day rating in the metered market households, an all-time low and down 16% from last year’s 22.4 rating, which was a nine-year low. The metered market total, which did not include ratings for the Boston TV market due to the severe weather conditions there, was well below the previous Oscars low ratings point, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9), hosted by Jon Stewart, when No Country For Old Men won Best Picture.
The drop is big — the Oscars had never fallen below 32 million viewers and 21 metered markets household rating before, forcing pundits to scratch their heads. One explanation — the Oscars rubber stamped winners who already had swept the awards shows that preceded it, making for one of the most predictable Academy Awards ceremony in years. Some pointed to the length of the show, which again flirted with the 4-hour mark, others to the ubiquitous montages, the overall modest box-office performance of the movies nominated for best picture and the injection of politics/social issues into the speeches. However, most if not all of these factors were also present the last couple of years when the numbers were higher. And the Oscars’ strongest competition, AMC’s The Walking Dead, was actually a more potent ratings performer in years past.
The best that Hollywood’s big night has done in the first round of ratings over the past decade-plus was back in 2005. That show, hosted by Chris Rock, got a 30.1 metered market households. Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby won Best Picture that year, and the broadcast went on to score 42.1 million viewers in the final number. With 12 Years a Slave winning Best Picture, the 2014 Oscars fronted by Ellen DeGeneres (27.9 metered market HH rating) drew the biggest overall audience of the 21st century, with 43.7 million tuning in.
Here are the final viewership totals for the Academy Awards so far this century, what won Best Picture that year and who hosted:
2018 26.5 million, The Shape of Water (Jimmy Kimmel)
2017 32.9 million, Moonlight (Jimmy Kimmel)
2016 34.4 million, Spotlight (Chris Rock)
2015 37.3 million, Birdman (Neil Patrick Harris)

President Donald Trump made a big announcement when he talked about the tariffs being placed on foreign steel and aluminum. He’s faced controversial opinions regarding the taxes being placed, and numerous companies have acted differently in regards to the announcement. One company reacted by giving people the best news of their lives as they announced the callback of 500 employees who will now have a job again. That company is called United States Steel, and they’ve embraced Trump’s tariffs on imported materials and they possibly see this as nothing more than a benefit for another great American industry that provides jobs to hard-working Americans. The company fired up one of their two blast furnaces, used to help make steel, and people became aware that they would once again have work and money to feed their family. This is excellent news for the hardworking people of Granite City, IL.
It’s reported that US Steel believes the imported materials are a threat to the American economy. It’s suggested that continually importing materials is one way that reduces some of the jobs here in America. If we can produce the materials, then we should – but sometimes companies seek business in other countries where it might be cheaper or there could be tax breaks involved. Trump seems like his intentions are to bring as much business back to America in hopes to provide more citizens with jobs.
US Steel stated that their startup process could take several months and they’ll be calling back about 500 employees. The callbacks are reported to begin this month.
Fox2Now reported more on the great announcement and jobs being reinstated: “Our Granite City Works facility and employees, as well as the surrounding community, have suffered too long from the unending waves of unfairly traded steel products that have flooded U.S. markets,” writes U. S. Steel President and Chief Executive Officer David B. Burritt in a statement.
US Steel says that steel imports are a threat to national and economic security. Company leaders praise President Trump for beginning to level the playing field so companies can compete.
The restart process could take up to four months. The company anticipates calling back approximately 500 employees beginning this month.
Both Granite City Works blast furnaces and its steelmaking facilities were idled in December 2015. The plant’s hot strip mill was idled in January 2016 in response to challenging market conditions.
Big business has sent distress signals since President Trump decided to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum. Trump plans to impose a 25% tariff on foreign steel and a 10% tariff on foreign aluminum. It’s unclear whether certain countries will be exempt.
China has long been accused of flooding the global market with cheap steel at prices that are unfairly low by US standards. Previous US administrations have imposed a litany of trade barriers on Chinese steel, which only accounts for about 2% of US steel imports. But China continues to sell en masse elsewhere, which suppresses global prices.”
President Trump’s announcement on tariffs will also help eliminate the flooding of cheap materials from China. Trump would like to produce our own materials and eliminate the need to put American businesses in other countries. If America is to receive imported materials, then there will be a tariff and the items will come at a cost. Of course, some things just need to be imported if America is unable to produce them, but many do not.
This could also help improve the quality of the products as America slowly resorts back to building their own products instead of cheaply made foreign products which have received numerous complaints over the years. This becomes a controversial talking point as some American products are often made cheap as well, thanks to some companies being greedy or workers being lazy and not doing their part to produce the top quality that consumers often wish for – and are willing to pay for.
Fox2Now reported that this could target numerous countries that import steel: “Trump’s measure would also target US allies such as Canada, Mexico, South Korea and Brazil, all of which import more steel to the United States than China.
A 2003 report from the U.S. International Trade Commission found that the tariffs caused headaches for some businesses. Nearly half of companies told the ITC they had trouble getting the quantity or quality of steel they needed. Employment in steel-consuming industries, such as car companies, fell or stayed flat. About a third of these companies reported production delays.
Corporations’ profits rose, but companies cut back on investing in their operations — for example, buying new equipment — as they faced less foreign competition. Nearly 20% of companies said they passed higher prices on to consumers.”
It appears as though the goal behind the tariffs is to bring the steel making business back to America and impose a tax on the imports. Some view the charge as a punishment. Others see the tariff announcement in a positive nature as it brings more jobs back to American people. US Steel must be enjoying this.
