Watch: Michelle Malkin Pays Tribute to ‘Disrupter’ Andrew Breitbart


1 Mar 20191,427


Conservative icon and best-selling author Michelle Malkin spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday where she paid tribute to Breitbart News founder Andrew Breitbart, who passed away seven years ago.
“It may be a coincidence, or maybe it’s providential, that I am privileged enough to speak here today on the seven-year anniversary of Andrew Breitbart’s death,” Malkin said. “God bless him.”
“He was a disrupter,” Malkin said as she clapped her hands and looked up.
She added, “He was a disrupter among defenders of the status quo. We need more like him. That is the future.”
Malkin then pleaded for those serving the American people to stand up to the establishment and those who seek to divide the country.
“We need politicians who will do something to stop the sowers of hate and their handmaidens,” Malkin told the crowd of conservative activists. “Use the tools at your disposal. Don’t just stand there. Do something.”

AS ANDREW SAID
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE OBJECT. THE MEDIA Sneaky Sneaky Sneaky Sneaky



Obsession: CNN, MSNBC Spend 428 Minutes on Cohen, 12 on NoKo Summit
1789 Shares Tweet 30 Print
Reddit
By Nicholas Fondacaro and Curtis Houck | February 28, 2019 1:08 AM EST
For all the liberal media’s prior pontifications about Wednesday being a “split screen” between two major events for President Trump, the congressional testimony of his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the denuclearization summit with North Korea, they were sure to only give the latter just a few pixels.
During the prime time and night hours on CNN and MSNBC (7:00 p.m. Eastern and 12 a.m. Eastern), the nine liberal hosts spent a combined 428 minutes and 19 seconds obsessing over the testimony of convicted liar Michael Cohen, and plotting how it could be used to bring down the Trump presidency. CNN’s share was 225 minutes and 10 seconds, while MSNBC sat at 203 minutes and nine seconds.
In stark contrast, these same cable networks spent a pitiful 12 minutes and 50 seconds combined discussing the unfolding and historic summit in Vietnam. CNN’s measly contribution was two minutes, 14 seconds. MSNBC’s was 10 minutes, 36 seconds with over half of that (five minutes, 54 seconds) having come during Hardball as Steve Kornacki again provided a refreshing break from Chris Matthews.
Twice on CNN, during Erin Burnett OutFront (7:00 p.m. Eastern hour) and the first hour of CNN Tonight (10:00 p.m. Eastern hour), there was not a single update or news story solely about the summit.
Now, to be fair, host Erin Burnett did cut to speak with White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who was in Vietnam following the President. But, for one minute and 30 seconds, they were discussing how the Cohen testimony was distracting from the trip.





Something similar happened during Anderson Cooper 360 (8:00 p.m. Eastern hour) when chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta made an appearance from Vietnam. But he managed to squeeze in a 15-second blurb on the summit (out of 37 seconds for the show):
The president is going to be meeting with Kim Jong-un shortly for their second summit here in Vietnam, to follow up on what they tried to hammer out in Singapore a year ago. It's not clear at all as to what the president is going to accomplish here on the nuclear arsenal front, when it comes to the North Koreans…
Humorously, on CNN’s Prime Time (9:00 p.m. Eastern hour), host Chris Cuomo tried to do a news brief on the summit (48 seconds) but was hamstrung by the booth playing the wrong clip. He declared “[w]e're going to have to get the tape right and you'll hear what the President said … So, when I get that, I'll bring it to you. ”, but he never came back to the topic. The second hour of CNN Tonight brushed over the summit with 49 seconds prior to a commercial break.
Over on MSNBC, Hardball, The Rachel Maddow Show, and The 11th Hour spent at least one minute on the Hanoi summit and provided the three single largest totals for the entire evening between CNN and MSNBC. In turn, All In (18 seconds) and The Last Word (seven seconds) rendered the summit all but irrelevant with only passing mentions totaling a few sentences combined.



Speaking of The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell provided a perfect quote to illustrate just how unhealthy his obsession with the Cohen hearing was and nothing else:
The smoking gun check, the one with Donald Trump’s bold signature, will now take its place in popular culture. You will be seeing it in tweets forever. You will be seeing it on t-shirts. It will be imprinted on toilet paper, on coffee mugs and it will take its place in history as the most important check Donald Trump has ever written because it is the check that could end his presidency.
Yikes. In terms of being out of control, it harkened back to his February 3, 2015 commentary about how fantastical Barack Obama’s Dreams from My Father was.
To praise, then criticize, Lyin’ Brian Williams, he found 16 seconds in his newscast to allude to the increasingly-terrifying military escalation over the past few days between India and Pakistan in light of the President being a few countries away in Vietnam. But like most liberal journalists, any praise they might incur is quickly erased by their, well, liberal bias. Here was Williams mocking Fox News:
I watched some Fox News here in the States tonight. Wrote down two of the headlines on screen. Number one: “Trump talks peace abroad while Democrats focus on Cohen saga.” Number two, “Democrats’ war on the American dream.” They're giving heavy air cover to the Trump forces here in the States.
Eye roll.

If Breitbart and a few other hard right sites are all you go to, your not balanced, Chances are your mind is set, as in cement.

Drinking kool-ade, be it the rights or lefts is a recipe for a stunted, robotic, closed mind set, how sad.

Andrew Breitbart and his site mean nothing to me, just like CNN or MSNBC. Together they might make some sense, maybe.

I agree that too much of either one can be a bad thing and twist your outlook. The problem is the so called mainstream media is much closer to MSNBC then to Breitbart so you still end up with news slanted to the left, just as it always has been with the mainstream media.

Is it possible that our views on what constitutes hard right or left are skewed due to a relentless effort to establish hard left ideology as being main stream?

Ten years ago the same Democrats who rejected socialism, gay marriage, infanticide etc. are now their most ardent supporters and anyone who disagrees is considered a heartless hard right bigot, yet rarely do I come across the kind of truly appalling hard right comments and commentary that were online back then.

Help me out here because all the extremism' I encounter see on TV hear on radio or read online is hardcore left and really have to wrack my brain to come up with any recent hardcore right equivalent examples.

Far Left Media Hack Dovere Continues To Slander GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz Over Fake Trump Phone Call
by Brock Simmons March 3, 2019 46 Comments
112Share 49Tweet Email

Edward-Isaac Dovere, hack writer for leftist site The Atlantic, continues to make the allegation that Rep. Matt Gaetz’s tweet to Michael Cohen was somehow an order from Trump, claiming that Trump called Gaetz from Hanoi.


And a screenshot for when (if?) he ever deletes the tweet:




The problem for Dovere is that his claims are untrue and are debunked.
Gaetz was talking to Governor DeSantis about a different matter, with witness accounts and phone records to back it up.






But that doesn’t stop Dovere from doubling down:


Also screencapped for when (if?) he ever deletes it:
Devore, who’s also gotten into heated exchanges with democrats, such as Alan Grayson, refuses to retract this.
Maybe he’s just trying to be the next Kurt Eichenwald, another journalist who promotes suspect news and creates controversy to boost his own profile.


Even other leftist sites have chimed in to set the record straight, namely Huffington Post.
And then there’s this…
Other leftist fake news sites continue to parrot the false account, such as CNN, who had Dovere on the air, along with Avery Friedman, to discuss the matter.
Travis Gettys, of Raw Story, also perpetuated the fake story, and his story was echoed in Salon. The Miami Herald published a piece that reads more like the delusional rantings of someone’s 2 bit blog.
Unfortunately, even Daily Caller fell for the hoax. Predictably, rags such as Rolling Stone, Politico (Dovere’s former employer), and, of course, MSNBC.
This is how fake news spreads throughout the mainstream media.

Roseanne Barr Says Kamala Harris “Slept Her Way to the Bottom” …Boy, Did She! (Video)
by Jim Hoft March 3, 2019


Candace Owens interviewed actress Roseanne this week on the Candace Owens Show on Prager U.

During the interview the subject moved to presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris.
Roseanne told Candace Owens Kamala Harris “slept her way to the bottom.”

It is widely known that Kamala Harris got her start in politics in the arms of Mayor Willie Brown.</strong
Willie Brown gave his young mistress her first state positions totalling more than 400,000 in five years.


SFGate reported:
Trump-supporting comedian and actress Roseanne Barr, whose TV show was cancelled in 2018 after she compared a black woman to an ape, is not done giving incendiary insults about race and sex.
She said that presidential candidate Kamala Harris “slept her way to the bottom” in an interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens released on Sunday. During the hour-long interview, Owens told Barr that she said that Harris “slept her way to the top” during a Periscope earlier in the day, which prompted Barr to put her spin on Owens’ insult.
The duo were referring to the fact that Harris dated former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, which has been frequently lobbed at Harris since she came to national prominence.
Here is the full video interview with Roseanne and Candace Owens.

'Islam: The Essays,' Bruce Bawer's Magnum Opus on 'The Religion of Peace'
By Thom Nickels March 2, 2019



It is perhaps fitting that on the day I was to begin my review of Bruce Bawer’s magnum opus on Islam, Islam: the Essays, that Facebook would send me a notice stating that my "Free Tommy Robinson Philadelphia" page had been deleted because of “hate speech.” My Robinson page criticized Islam as an ideology but it did not attack individual Muslims at all. Still, why should I have been surprised at the censorship? We’re living in a new world where criticizing a group — in this case, Islam — is tantamount to the worst obscenity. For me it was an epiphanous moment that brought Bawer’s new book of essays to life. It also got me thinking about other brave writers who aren’t afraid to tell the truth about Islam: Oriana Fallaci in The Rage and The Pride; Pat Buchanan; and James V. Schall, S.J., whose little book, On Islam, published by Ignatius Press, was released last year.
“The first is that the West insists on seeing Islam through the lenses of its own modern, liberal theories about religion, freedom, and human motivation. Islam is just another religion; we are told that it acts like other religions, even when it does not,” Schall writes.
Salman Rushdie, author of Satanic Verses, which got the Ayatollah Khomeini to put a fatwa on his head in 1989, not long ago told France’s L’Express, “We are living in the darkest time I have ever known. I’ve since had the feeling that, if the attacks against Satanic Verses had taken place today, these people would not have defended me, and would have used the same arguments against me, accusing me of insulting an ethnic and cultural minority.”
Let’s get back to Bawer, whose 817-page opus is as thick as Jean-Paul Sartre’s Being and Nothingness and weighs as much as the cornerstone of a building. The weight of the book alone might be said to symbolize what it will take to "smack awake" the blindness of many in the West to the inherent dangers of the Religion of Peace. Islam: The Essays (Swamp Fox Books/Amazon) is a collection of the writer’s articles on the topic since 2002, especially from the pages of PJ Media, FrontPage, and City Journal. Some of the essays in the book later appeared in Bawer’s books, While Europe Slept, Surrender, and The New Quislings.
Bawer, who grew up in New York but moved to Western Europe (Amsterdam) in 1998, soon discovered that “European Muslims are more likely than their American counterparts to live in tightly knit religious communities, to adhere to a narrow fundamentalist faith, and to resist integration into mainstream society.” One evening he expressed these thoughts to a Dutch writer friend who had boasted that the Netherlands was in better shape than the U.S. because it did not have a Religious Right. “I knew very well, of course, that the Netherlands did indeed have a Religious Right, that it consisted of Islamic, not Christian, fundamentalists,” Bawer writes. That Bawer’s Dutch friend did not see the writing on the wall in his own birth country is one of those astounding facts that make books like Islam: The Essays necessary reading.

Yes both sides, the ridiculous position the far right takes on the environment in the face of overwhelming evidence. Where money and Capitalism trump common sense and science.

The idea that all regulation is bogus, the market should be free and totally untethered. The idea that all aspects of Socialism are negative, are all far right positions active today.

Populism as in President Trump, the idea is to go past the politicians and status quo and appeal to the reactionary sentiments of the populace. Flies in the face of what is and has been the norm in the US. A step towards dictatorship and tyranny.

There's plenty more, its a spectrum of opposing, conflicting and competitive ideas, each with its own cliff. To deny this, is to be lost.

Thought we were talking about hardcore 'extremism' but maybe the answer to the previous question is yes it's not only possible but manifest that what constitutes far right and left is skewed due to the left's relentless passive aggressive propaganda campaign where we end up with nuts like AOC prancing around like a little socialist dictator in the making.

Talk about appealing to reactionary sentiments or a ridiculous position on climate, capitalism, socialism and regulation this pipsqueak is a hardcore leftist nightmare.

You mentioned common sense before and I agree we need recognize the dangers of any extreme so here's an interesting video by a former co founder of Green Peace.

VICTORY: Masterpiece Cakeshop BEATS Colorado Civil Rights Commission into submission!

Mar. 5, 2019 4:32 pm by The Right Scoop • 73 Comments

FacebookTwitterEmail

Masterpiece Cakeshop has finally beaten the Colorado Civil Rights Commission into submission after their continuing harassment of his Cakeshop even after beating them in the Supreme Court last year.
Notice the language in the report below makes it sound like they both agreed to stop attacking each other, as if Jack Phillips was in the wrong here:
DENVER POST – More than six years of legal battles between the owner of Lakewood’s Masterpiece Cakeshop and state officials will end after the baker agreed to drop his lawsuit alleging the Colorado Civil Rights Commission was harassing him for refusing to make cakes with LGBTQ themes in exchange for the commission dropping its own actions against him.
“After careful consideration of the facts, both sides agreed it was not in anyone’s best interest to move forward with these cases,” Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser said in a news release Tuesday announcing the agreement. “The larger constitutional issues might well be decided down the road, but these cases will not be the vehicle for resolving them.”
The Civil Rights Commission unanimously voted to approve the agreement between the two sides Tuesday morning, said Lawrence Pacheco, a spokesman for Weiser. The attorney general’s office represents the commission and the director of the Colorado Civil Rights Division, who also was named in Phillips’ lawsuit.
“Throughout these proceedings, the parties have been looking for ways to resolve the issue,” Pacheco said.
This isn’t really a ‘both sides agreed’ kind of thing. Jack Phillips wanted to be left alone to run his business with his faith in mind. It was Colorado that sued him and harassed him for the last six years.



In fact Phillips only filed his counter lawsuit after Colorado attacked him again. He’d already beaten them once and they knew the writing was on the wall. Even Ted Cruz knows this “mutual ceasefire” is a load of crap:
Colorado has declared a “mutual ceasefire” with Masterpiece Cakeshop—which is what repelled attackers say when they’ve been beaten. One small step toward ending harassment by undemocratic “commissions” targeting religious liberty. https://t.co/NbhxNlHjzR via @denverpost
— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) March 5, 2019
Here’s what Phillip’s attorneys had to say:
When reached by phone Tuesday, Phillips said he could not immediately comment and referred a reporter to his attorneys.
His attorneys counted the agreement as a victory and stood by their belief that the commission’s actions toward Phillips were harassment.
“This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him,” said attorney Kristen Waggoner, of the Alliance Defending Freedom. “While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”
Honestly I would have loved to see him throttle them in court with harassment. But after six years of legal battles, I’m quite certain he’s had enough and can totally understand his willingness to drop his lawsuit against them.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Flees Reporter Asking About Alleged Campaign Finance Violations (VIDEO)
By Mike LaChance -

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was questioned by a reporter on Tuesday – a rare sight – about the questions swirling around her campaign and allegations of shady finances. She couldn’t get away fast enough.

The 29-year-old Democratic bird brain pushed back against a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday, which raised questions about cash transfers from the PACs that are overseen by her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti.
“There is no violation,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, when she was confronted by a reporter for Fox News at Ronald Reagan National Airport.

The questions about her campaign have gotten worse in a matter of days.
FOX News reports:
Ocasio-Cortez, chief of staff illegally moved $885G in campaign contributions ‘off the books,’ FEC complaint alleges
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, the progressive firebrand’s multimillionaire chief of staff, apparently violated campaign finance law by funneling nearly $1 million in contributions from political action committees Chakrabarti established to private companies that he also controlled, according to an explosive complaint filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and obtained by Fox News.
Amid the allegations, a former FEC commissioner late Monday suggested in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation that Ocasio-Cortez and her team could separately be facing major fines and potentially even jail time if they were knowingly and willfully violating the law by hiding their control of the Justice Democrats political action committee (PAC). Such an arrangement could have allowed Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign to receive donations in excess of the normal limit, by pooling contributions to both the PAC and the campaign itself.
The FEC complaint asserts that Chakrabarti established two PACs, the Brand New Congress PAC and Justice Democrats PAC, and then systematically transfered more than $885,000 in contributions received by those PACs to the Brand New Campaign LLC and the Brand New Congress LLC — companies that, unlike PACs, are exempt from reporting all of their significant expenditures. The PACs claimed the payments were for “strategic consulting.”
Will the rest of the media finally start looking into this?
