Commenting on a recent finding that many Democrats would have trouble continuing a friendship with anyone who is pro-President Trump, Harvard Law Professor Adrian Vermeule remarked that the least tolerant among us are “white liberal college graduates.”
A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that 35 percent of Democrats believed that a friend’s vote for Donald Trump would “strain” their relationship. Among white Democrats, the figure is even higher, with 40 percent saying that they would have trouble maintaining a friendship with someone who supported Trump. Nearly half (47 percent) of those who described themselves as “liberal” Democrats said their friendship would suffer with someone who favored Trump.
By contrast, the share of Republicans who say that a friend’s vote for Hillary Clinton would strain Find Out More…
President Donald Trump spent Saturday morning challenging the media in response to more leaks, including information about conversations that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had with the Russians during the campaign.
“A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!”
Trump also addressed reports that he was considering pardoning family members who were caught up in the Russia investigation.
“While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us,” he said. “FAKE NEWS.”
Trump also accused the New York Times of thwarting attempts by the military to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
President Trump’s team is reportedly looking at ways to push back against an apparently overzealous FBI special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election — putting together a case of Mueller’s team’s alleged conflicts of interest.
The New York Timesreported late Thursday that the Trump team is engaging in what the paper called a “wide-ranging” search for potential conflicts, including donations from members of Mueller’s team to Democratic candidates, past clients, as well as Mueller’s relationship to fired former FBI Director James Comey.
Trump had hinted at such a tactic when he told the Times in an interview Wednesday that he believed there were conflicts of interests in Mueller’s team, and that he would make that information available soon.
Washington Post blogger Callum Borchers — no fan of Breitbart News — notices that our White House correspondent Charlie Spiering “is not giving [President] Trump a pass” when it comes to the nationalist-populist issues that catapulted him into office.
His headline: “Breitbart’s White House reporter is trying to hold Trump accountable. Seriously.”
Since you generally can’t watch White House news briefings these days, you might think you’ve been missing farcical question-and-answer sessions in which President Trump’s spokesmen can always avoid a tough inquiry by calling on the reporter from Breitbart News.
You would be wrong.
The briefings are becoming farcical, all right — White House press secretary Sean Spicer and his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Find Out More…
Polls are deployed only when they might prove useful — that is, helpful to the powers that be in their question to maintain their position and influence.

The latest rod by which to beat the President of the United States is a Washington Post/ABC News poll showing Mr. Trump’s approval ratings languishing at 36 per cent.
Americans across the board appear, on first take, to be well out of love with the new President. But the “small print” on the polls reveals something quite disturbing about the methodology of the group responsible.
The poll was performed by AbtAssociates — a swamp dweller-staffed research and policy shop in Cambridge, MA.
AbtAssociates board members include former Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, Find Out More…
New polls show that Americans give President Donald Trump high ratings on the economy, despite new numbers showing his presidential approval ratings are lower.
A new Bloomberg poll shows that Trump has a 47 percent approval rating on job creation versus 40 percent who disagree and 46 percent approval ratings on the economy versus only 44 percent who disagree.
Under Trump, 58 percent of Americans in the Bloomberg poll believe they’re moving closer to realizing their own career and financial aspirations.
A new ABC poll shows that 43 percent of Americans approve of his handling of the economy, while 41 percent disagree.

The Washington Post has continued its climate change hysteria with a report claiming that polar bears upset by climate change are more likely to attack and eat human beings.
The report, entitled ‘Polar bears hurt by climate change are more likely to turn to a new food source — humans,’ cited a new study claiming that “the higher global temperatures go, the researchers said, the more likely polar bears are to interact with humans — and possibly attack and eat them.”
Their findings are based on a study published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin, which claims a “perfect storm” is brewing in which polar bears will increase their appetite for human flesh.

TEL AVIV — Information contained in a Washington Post article may disprove perhaps the most infamous claim made in the already discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump.
The dossier in question was authored by former intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who was reportedly paid by Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans to investigate Trump. Steele recently conceded in court documents that part of his work still needed to be verified.
One of the most widely reported claims inside the document was that while Trump was staying in the presidential suite at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Moscow in 2013, he hired “a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him.”
The dossier claims that Trump wanted to “defile” the bed because he learned that President Obama had used the same Find Out More…
Despite the recent ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court reiterating that the Washington Redskins have a right to trademark their team name, the Washington Post continues to attack the team for its “offensive” name.
In a recent editorial, the paper again called the NFL team’s name a “racial slur” and demanded that owner Daniel Snyder change the team’s name:
Mr. Snyder can call his football team anything he wants without fear of losing the valuable trademark protection that is key to merchandising revenue. But just because the First Amendment gives him the right to use a racial slur, that doesn’t mean he should. Why would he even want to? We understand the affection Mr. Snyder and some team fans espouse for the history embodied in the name, Find Out More…
