    LOWER SALFORD — There are times when Cassel Road should be closed down because of the mud on the road from the work to widen the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Lower Salford Township Board of Supervisors member Phil Heilman said at the board's Nov. 21 morning work session. He drove on the road on a recent day, he said. "It was solid mud," he said. Heilman said he was driving behind another vehicle. "His car was chocolate, just like mine," Heilman said. "We gotta keep an eye on that." Police Chief Tom Medwid said officers are checking on...

    Research psychologist Robert Epstein joined Tucker Carlson on Thursday night. In a previous appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight Epstein revealed that Google can take a 50-50 split among undecided voters and change it into a 90-10 split with no one knowing they had been manipulated and without leaving a paper trail… It has to do with their search suggestions. On Thursday Dr. Epstein revealed that just one Google shift in search results on Election Day 2018 shifted from 800,000 to 4.6 million votes to Democratic candidates. This follows the shocking Breitbart exposé by Allum Bokhari published Thursday that proves Google...

    RUSH: I mentioned earlier, ladies and gentlemen, CNN’s trying to scare the hell out of people that airplanes are gonna start falling out of the sky. Here’s how it happened. We’re up to audio sound bite No. 7. CNN’s Newsroom is the name of the show. The host here is Jim Sciutto. Not to be confused with Jim Acosta. But, I mean, they probably share the same brain. They’ve got the National Air Traffic Controllers Association Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert on there. Question: “Is there any reason why people flying should be concerned that there’s not enough man and...

    To say House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has mastered the art of dealing with President Donald Trump would be a gross understatement. She fact-checked him in the Oval Office on live TV and passed spending bills to reopen the government, thereby reinforcing Trump's responsibility for the shutdown. To top it off, she's taking away the president's TV. More precisely, in response to Trump's nearly monthlong temper tantrum, she has told him he won't get his prime-time State of the Union address on Jan. 29.
  • President Trump Met With Democrats at the White House, Here's How It Went

    President Trump hosted a number of Republican and Democratic House lawmakers at the White House Wednesday to negotiate over border security and end the ongoing government shut down. “The President and his team had a constructive meeting with bipartisan members of the problem solvers caucus. They listened to one another and now both have a good understanding of what the other wants. We look forward to more conversations like this,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said about the meeting.  These House Democrats in the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus met today with @realDonaldTrump in the Situation Room to discuss the shutdown: Josh...
  • Tlaib and Omar Co-sponsor Bill to Recognize Muslim Holidays as Federal Holidays

    Freshman Congressmen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have wasted no time in shaking up the US House of Representatives. Early Friday morning, Omar and Tlaib introduced a bill adding Islamic holidays to the Federal calendar which has traditionally only recognized American holidays. Omar and Tlaib’s bill would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of Federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons to banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year. Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s...

    We all knew that there would be zero bipartisanship this Congress. We started the year with the government in a shutdown over border security. House Democrats retook the majority in 2018. They’re in no mood to play ball with the Trump White House. The fight is over a mere $5 billion for part of the border wall. Reportedly, Trump offered to re-open the government if he got some of the money. Democrats rejected it; they’re more concerned with scoring points. Yet, as the Democrats suit up for battle against the Trump presidency, their left flank could cause trouble as well....
  • Whiff: CNN Analyst Called Out Conservative Commentator For His 'White Privilege'...But He's Black

    Well, if you want to talk about a rake-stepping moment hitting CNN, there are many, but this one might be one of the worst and we’re not even 30 days into 2019. CNN’s Areva Martin did a radio interview on David Webb’s show on SiriusXM Tuesday and tried to criticize him for exercising white privilege; they were talking about applying for media jobs. There was only one problem: Webb is black. He’s a frequent guest on Fox News and a known conservative commentator. It’s a rather cringe-worthy moment (via WaPo): “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world,...

    RUSH: Just a little word here on the Brexit vote yesterday in the U.K. This is very instructive here, because what the establishment has done to Brexit is exactly what the swamp would like to do to Donald Trump. If you remember, the people in the United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union. The people of the United Kingdom said, “We don’t want to be ruled by a collection of elites from other European countries in some distant capital that are not us.” So they voted to withdraw from the European Union. From the moment that happened, British elites...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., used a strange – and sexually charged – phrase to describe to The Washington Post her plan for implementing a progressive agenda. “... enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda,” the newly minted congresswoman told the newspaper. The choice of words sent the Internet into a tizzy, as it has a well-known and highly disturbing connotation. According to the Urban Dictionary, to “run train” means “to gangbang” someone. The phrase was injected into more mainstream parlance in October, after a client of adult film industry lawyer Michael...

    At the midpoint of Donald Trump’s first term, the establishment media’s obvious hostility shows no signs of relenting, but polls show this negative coverage has had no discernible impact on the public’s attitudes toward the President. Since January 20, 2017, the Media Research Center has analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, seen by approximately 23 million people each night.

    – As the Women’s March continues to suffer defections over its leaders’ associations with Louis Farrakhan, the controversial preacher’s Nation of Islam has been hitting back, accusing “Jewish and white women” of trying to undermine the movement ahead of its planned march this weekend. In racially-charged columns, the Nation of Islam organ The Final Call has been slamming prominent critics who have raised concerns about anti-Semitism and called on the Women’s March leaders to resign. In doing so, the writers have accused “white women,” among other things, of supporting the oppression of blacks, and of historical complicity in rapes and...

    Recently on CNN, former Republican politico and now Never Trump cable new analyst Rick Wilson characterized Donald Trump’s supporters as his “credulous rube ten-toothed base.” Wilson was not original in his smear of the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump. He was likely resonating an earlier slander of Politico reporter Marco Caputo. The latter had tweeted of the crowd he saw at a Trump rally: “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.” Was the point of these stereotypes that poor white working-class people who supposedly voted for the controversial Trump...

    By finally returning to the issue that won him the election, President Trump once again has a winning hand. That's why we're hearing so much about "white supremacy" this week. Liberals lie all the time, but when they know they're vulnerable they lie even more than all the time. They're vulnerable on immigration. Even heroic, nonstop lying doesn't help -- as CNN has discovered.

    Second Lady Karen Pence, the wife of the US vice-president, will return to teaching art at a school that requires employees to oppose LGBT lifestyles. The school in Springfield, Virginia, bars teachers from engaging in or condoning "homosexual or lesbian sexual activity" and "transgender identity". Mrs Pence previously taught art at the school for more than a decade while her husband was a member of Congress. A spokeswoman for Mrs Pence has hit back at criticism of her employer. "Mrs Pence has returned to the school where she previously taught for 12 years," the second lady's spokeswoman Kara Brooks said...

El Chapo, the Sinaloa cartel chieftain… El Chapo paid a $100 million bribe (the latest news story here) to an ex-Mexican president while he was president, and everybody’s acting like, “Oh, my God! Oh, my!” (Snort!) It happens every day. The Clintons do this kind of stuff every day. It’s called lobbying. What’s the difference? So El Chapo, who has an interest in illegal drugs, gives a Mexican president $100 million bribe. The Democrats go to Puerto Rico to get their bribes with their lobbyists and with their donors, and they did it in the...
