#1 Leftists No Longer Having Sex: Is It Trump’s Fault?
By Graham J. Noble
Insane, Trump-hating sex therapist helps Salon fill webpage with more nonsense.
Every once in a while – or, these days, every 47 minutes – some leftist comes completely unglued and starts ranting about President Donald Trump and all those who support him. The depths to which these leftists stoop, as they vent their unbridled hatred of all those who refuse to accept their world-view, seem to have no limit. Yet, even the most demented of social justice warriors and other progressives can still surprise us.
Salon is one of those sites that cater to such people. For the past two years, it has been consumed by extreme animosity toward not only the president but to all things conservative, Republican, white, heterosexual or Christian.
Salon’s rage at the world goes even beyond those things, however: The publication actually seems to pour venom and scorn upon anything and everything that has ever been accepted – rightly or not – as conventional. Salon’s slogan should, perhaps, be: “If there’s nothing wrong with you, there’s something wrong with you.” Read More.
#2 The Disappearing Democratic Scandal – Part 2
By Tim Donner
The media, the DOJ, and the Democrats: A powerful axis with the ability to shape what we perceive as the issue of the day.
Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series on a massive scandal which has gone largely unreported, based on an interview on Liberty Nation Radiowith Luke Rosiak, author of Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect the Democrats. In part one, Mr. Rosiak described how the scandal unfolded and jeopardized the security of more than two dozen Democratic members of Congress.
It was a scandal that threatened to metastasize and blow up in the face of Democrats in a presidential election year like no other. But with the Hillary Clinton email scandal growing by the day, Democrats willing to do almost anything to avoid the specter of a Donald Trump presidency, the FBI burying their findings and a drive-by media behaving with a distinct lack of curiosity, few people took notice.
It was a scandal that threatened to metastasize and blow up…few people took notice.
Imram Awam, an IT specialist and Pakistani national with a checkered past, yet unvetted by the many congressional Democrats who employed his services, took advantage of the unfettered access he was granted to their computer files to hack, steal, blackmail – and even threaten to kill his wife’s family – in the process placing national security in distinct jeopardy.

#3 It’s The Social Victimhood Economy, Stupid!
By Jeff Charles
In this economy, the victimhood capitalist is king.
The case of Jussie Smollett is looking more and more like a fake hate crime. As more information is revealed, it has become increasingly difficult to believe his story of being attacked at 2 a.m. in Chicago by Trump supporters. While the public is not yet certain that the actor orchestrated the entire affair, many on both the left and the right are asking an important question: “Why?”
Over the past few years, hate crimes have increased. But false reports also seem to be on the rise. If Smollett’s statements turn out to be false, it could potentially be the most high-profile fake hate crime the nation has seen in many years.
There are likely several forces that could contribute to such hoaxes, but none more so than society’s fixation on victimhood. Indeed, with the progressive left — and even many on the right — pushing a constant narrative of grievance, they have created an entire social economy based on victimization. Read More.
#4 The Numbers Don’t Lie – Why Trump Wins 2020
By Mark Angelides
The very future of the Democratic Party is under threat.
Campaigns for the 2020 presidential election have begun in earnest. Every rally, each interview, are part of an unwieldy creature known as the campaign trail. Politicians of all stripes are begging for airtime and making sweeping statements on every imaginable topic in the hopes of earning a few more column inches. But perhaps it is all for naught? According to all major gambling outfits, President Trump is odds on favorite to win the race in 2020. Following the money is always wise advice, yet there are other signs that Trump may be well on his way to victory.
On Monday February 11, Trump took his campaign to El Paso, where he wooed the crowd with promises of the border wall and reminded them of his achievements to date – standard fare for the man who believes himself a master of persuasion. Putting his rhetoric aside, there was something truly startling about the crowd that attended, and it likely has Democrats fearing for the future of their party.
Of those who registered as attendees, 70% identified as Hispanic, and almost 50% identified as Democrat voters. If these numbers are accurate, it could spell major problems for the DNC, not just in the next election cycle, but for years and years to come. Read More.
#5 Left Paints A Bullseye On Patriots
By Joe Schaeffer
The voices of “tolerance” foster climate of violence against Trump supporters.
Leftists and their media allies constantly bemoan what they call President Trump’s “divisiveness.” Yet they not only never address anti-Trump intolerance in this country but also continuously fan the flames of partisan fanaticism in a dangerous manner that is going to get somebody killed. It’s sad enough that white teenagers cannot wear Make America Great Again hats at a rally in Washington, D.C., without having their entire world thrown into complete turmoil. But what has our nation come to when folks can’t even go to a Sam’s Club in Kentucky without taking their lives in their hands just for publicly supporting their president?
Terry Pierce and his wife were shopping at a Sam’s in Bowling Green, KY, while daring to wear MAGA hats. As they walked the aisles, they noticed another customer flipping them the bird. When they asked the man, James Phillips, if he did what they thought he did, he let them know it was because of their hats. They then responded in kind, and the man promptly pulled a gun, pointed it at them, and said, “This is a good day for you to die.” Read More.
