Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) really enjoys calling for President Trump’s impeachment over allegations of his campaign’s collusion with Russia, and she’s perhaps even fonder of saying how we have to “connect the dots” to make that happen … (read more)

Donald Trump scored a stunning and historic upset victory in the presidential election Wednesday morning, once again defying predictions and winning key battleground states to capture the White House.
Giddy supporters at the New York Hilton — who were sullen just hours earlier — erupted in cheers as the GOP nominee closed in on victory, chanting, “President Trump,” “Drain the Swamp,” and “Lock her up!” about Hillary Clinton.
Ed Rollins, who ran Trump’s Great America Super PAC, basked in the victory.
“We won the presidency, the Senate and House. When’s the last time that happened?” Rollins told The Post. “The polls were bad! Trump is going to be president. He’s won this thing. He caught the wave of public discontent and rode it. Washington has to be stunned.”
“I’m feeling great,” Trump ally Rudy Giuliani told The Post as he strode into the party.
“If I can think of an analogous election, it would have to be Andrew Jackson. This is the people revolting against the Republican establishment,” he said.
Still, Clinton’s campaign announced early Wednesday that it would not concede.
But in a tweet to supporters, the former secretary of state seemed resigned to what had to be a heartbreaking upset after working for the former first lady — who had worked for years to become the first female president in the nation’s 240-year history.
“Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything,” she wrote. Read the rest of this entry »
Roger Ailes’ time at the helm of Fox News could be nearing its end, according to a new report Monday by New York magazine.
The report, by Gabriel Sherman, a longtime chronicler of the Fox News chief and his tenure at one of the nation’s most influential news outlets, said that Rupert Murdoch and his sons, James and Lachlan, had decided to remove the executive from his post in the wake of a sexual-harassment lawsuit leveled against him by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson. The report, citing unnamed sources, suggested the executives, who run Fox News parent 21st Century Fox, were considering various strategies to have Ailes step down.
“This matter is not yet resolved and the review is not concluded,” 21st Century Fox said in a statement. A spokeswoman for Fox News could not be reached for immediate comment. Read the rest of this entry »
[VIDEO] Tuttle: American Sniper Backlash Exposes ‘Bush Derangement’ Syndrome Hasn’t Gone into Remission, Still MalignantPosted: January 22, 2015
Chris Kyle Complicates the Narrative
National Review Buckley fellow Ian Tuttle addressed the seething discontent on the American left over the popular success of American Sniper, saying the backlash against the story of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle represents continuing “derangement” over the Bush years and the Iraq War.
“One of the reasons that Chris Kyle has garnered so much animus is because there remains a derangement when it comes to Iraq and the Bush years, against which Chris Kyle stood…”
Tuttle spoke with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on Wednesday about the vitriolic outpouring against Kyle by left-wing bloggers and pundits like Michael Moore and Max Blumenthal, who accused the sniper of being a coward and a mass murderer. Read the rest of this entry »
After mocking Fox & Friends earlier this week for their coverage of France’s supposed “no-go” Muslim zones, French TV show Le Petit Journal has launched an email campaign urging its viewers to demand an apology from Fox News’ Executive Vice President of News Michael Clemente…(read more)
The show promoted the campaign, along with Clemente’s email address on Twitter Friday:
A Practical Definition of “No-Go”
Certainly there are areas of France where crime and violence is rampant, that travelers and non-residents may avoid, and where police may intercede in only with caution and difficulty — some of which are home to significant Muslim populations — but as others have noted:
It’s an exercise in confirmation bias on the Left
The Texas senator surprised Fox & Friends hosts when he rolled up his sleeve and showed off his supposed tattoo of the British Bulldog.
“I will note if you look at the calendar it might suggest something about what you’re seeing…”

On Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, saying, “they used to say under Bush, ‘Oh the world hates us, hates us,’ Now the world is laughing at us.”
Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” noted the push by Democrats for the United States to act, comparing it with their reluctance after former Iraq President Saddam Hussein had launched chemical attacks on his own people in the late 1980s.
