    Artful Dilettante ^ | August 13, 2018 | Artful Dilettante
    The title is somewhat misleading. This essay is specifically written for young black Americans who believe or have absorbed the message that the ghetto and life on the margin are their destiny, that success is unattainable, and that dreams are only for white people. Before you are halfway through the essay, many of you will be condemning and ridiculing me as simplistic, unrealistic, idealistic, and naive. I agree. But you ignore my message at your own peril. It is very demanding. Anything worth having is very demanding. Your friends may ostracize you and ridicule you as "trying to be white."...

    Former “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed another taped White House conversation in which President Trump appeared to express surprise that she had been fired from his administration. “Omarosa? Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” Trump says on the tape played on NBC’s “Today” show Monday. “General Kelly – General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave,” Newman said on the tape, referring to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a retired Marine general. “No … I, I, Nobody even told me...
  • FLASHBACK: Ellison Statement on Sen. Al Franken's Resignation

    Dec 7, 2017 Press Release WASHINGTON – Following Sen. Al Franken's decision to resign from the U.S. Senate, Rep. Keith Ellison issued the following statement: "I commend the brave women who have come forward in recent weeks to share their experience of sexual harassment and assault.

    newsweek ^ | Kelly Wynne
    Fuller House star and former host of The View, Candace Cameron Bure, told Fox News she wants The View to acquire another conservative host. “I really hope that it is a conservative seat because I think it will balance out that table,” she said. “They need more than one conservative so I really hope it’s a conservative.” Bure spoke about Meghan McCain, who is on the panel currently, and stated that McCain should not be the only one there to balance the table. Bure, who is a Republican, has not been fully supportive of President Donald Trump. She commented on...
  • Watergate had tapes. Trump has tweets.

    he Watergate tapes stand as one of the stunning, implausible twists of American history. Nixon confessed his crimes and recorded himself in the process. Who does that? In their book The Final Days, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein write, “the single thread that linked the problems together was the President’s tapes. The lawyers represented a President who had bugged himself, who had blurted his secrets into hidden microphones. They had not yet heard the tapes, nor seen any transcripts of them. The President would not permit it. They were told to mount a defense, but were not given the information...

    Trump wins election and the economy starts clawing itself out of the liberal grave it was forced into. Trump rolls back EPA rules and the economy stands up and starts walking. Trump gets tax reform and the economy starts galloping like a thoroughbred. Trump starts slapping our trade partners with tariffs and instead of economic calamity, the jobs you can't bring back, start returning on their own and the economy is now soaring.... What next.... Where are the finial restrains, real or imagined, that Trump can remove.

  • Pope Francis: Sacrificing Children for Career Is Modern ‘Idolatry

    brietbart ^ | 08/01/2018 | Thomas D Williams PHD
    Modern idolatry takes many forms, Pope Francis said Wednesday, including not having children in order to advance one’s career. “Idols demand a cult and rituals,” the pope said at his weekly General Audience in Saint Peter’s Square. “People bow down before them and sacrifice everything. In antiquity, human sacrifices were made to idols, but even today people sacrifice their children for their career, neglecting them or simply not generating them.” Children are not the only sacrifice laid on the altar of idols, the pope continued, and one’s career is not the only idol on offer. “Beauty demands human sacrifices. Fame...

    About thirty Trump rally attendees gathered in Tampa, Florida State Fairgrounds at about 2:00 AM in the morning to make certain they get right up front for the massive POTUS Trump political rally, this evening starting at 7:00 PM EST. As the morning daylight Sun rose over Tampa, the early crowd swelled to between 300-500 people. Should be a "BLOCKBUSTER" Trump Rally/Lovefest this evening in Tampa. Go Trumpie, Go, DeSantis, Go, MAGA!!!
  • Vanity Question: Will today's massive upward revision to consumer spending push GDP figures higher?

    data from BEA | Dangus
    This morning, the Bureau of Economic Analysis posted HUGE revisions to May's estimate of consumer spending (and very solid numbers to the first June estimate.) BEA now says consumer spending grew 0.5% in May. If it was exactly 0.5%, that would mean an annual growth rate of 6% for the month. This is an update from a passable but unexciting 0.2% initial estimate. This did not take any growth away from the June consumer spending figure. In other words, it wasn't simply that growth simply took place earlier. Rather, there was more growth: June's spending growth reached the strong 0.4%...

    Sorry for the vanity but Rush did a 180 on trade today and I am proud of him. Rush confessed he was wrong all of these decades about trade, live on air just a few minutes ago! He also admitted Perot was correct and the the one sided trade the US( and its workers ) have been subjected to was wrong and it was erroneously pawned off as 'free trade'. He said he was duped by economists. I just listened in amazement committing free trade heresy live. It was a great radio show today! Awesome! Rush is off my S...

    Sarah Solomon had a pretty sweet life. The 20-something publicist was always out at fashion events, dinners and parties — and even hung out with John Legend during Fashion Week. “It was definitely New York glamourous — the black dress, leather pants and high heels, and an hour putting on my makeup,” says Solomon. “Anyone would think I had a really fun life, meeting cool people and celebrities.” But she yearned for something more and resented only having two weeks of vacation a year. So, last August, she quit her seemingly great job at a plum downtown p.r. firm. “I...
