So without further ado, here’s the News you can Use for Saturday, December 30, 2017.
The Top-10 “undercovered” stories from 2017. #1 on the list is a good one – the media hasn’t properly covered the fact that the “russia collusion” charges were completely bogus and went nowhere.
That United Airlines passenger that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) just accused of being a racist… is a human rights activist.
There is unrest in Iran – could it lead to regime change and more freedom for the Iranian people?
Trump, “the Insurgent,” is doing everything differently from the way the media expects it to be done… and they can’t stand it!
Ben Shapiro argues that no one should take Breitbart’s disavowal of Paul Nehlen seriously.
Here’s the problem: Nehlen’s been painting in various hues of unhinged nuttery for months now, as Lachlan Markay of The Daily Beast traced on December 7. In early December, Nehlen retweeted someone calling Muslims “towel heads.” He also labeled a Muslim “Achmed” and a black man “Tyrone.” He suggested that God should punish California with a massive earthquake for its status as “Sodom and Gomorrah.” He stated that Gabby Giffords should have outdrawn her shooter.
Nothing from Breitbart.
It’s really important to distinguish between “NeverTrump” and “NeverTrump/NeverHillary” Conservatives.
I’m ending 2017 with a small amount of unexpected optimism. As I wrote last week, conservatives are actually winning the GOP civil war. Trump’s polices aren’t nationalist populist but rather conventional and conservative. Roy Moore’s loss is a loss for the worst elements of the Republican Party. There’s good reason to believe that after the Trump storm passes the GOP’s conservative core will remain. I know there’s trouble on the horizon in the midterm elections, and Trump’s character and temperament have proven to be worse than I feared, but the transformation of the GOP into a Trump/Bannon vehicle for white identity politics and malignant nationalism has been bitterly and often successfully opposed from within the GOP — and that’s a very good thing indeed.
Illinois has a BIG problem and it’s only getting worse.
President Trump believes that he will win in 2020 because without him, the “media will tank.”
“Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,” Trump told the Times.
“Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times,” the president added, using his favored derogatory nickname for the newspaper.
“They basically have to let me win,” he predicted. “And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, ‘Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.’ OK.”
A man killed by police seems to have been a victim of a “swatting.” Swatting’s are yet another reason that police militarization is likely a bad thing.
