U.N. Human Rights Council, March 20, 2017: “Where is the apartheid?” [3:52]
Ambassador Haley speaks truth to power about the UN’s anti-Israel bias. This is WELL WORTH 4 minutes of YOUR TIME.
It’s not supposed to be like this. As long as anyone can remember, the ‘news’ reporters have had free rein in controlling presidential press conferences and even the daily briefings. Then Donald Trump happened. After an eight year vacation, the media finally went back to investigating … with a vengeance. They were as happy as a pig in slop when they forced out General Kelly, a better man than the lot of them. Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary, Andy Puzder, succumbed to intense pressure from the left over allegedly hiring an illegal to do his housekeeping. (I’d bet my retirement check most if not all of the people raising the hell have some questionable employees as well.)
[CtH: How freaking hypocritical is it of them to condemn Puzder for hiring an illegal when they PROMOTE THE HIRING OF ILLEGALS?!]
The president and PM Netanyahu held a joint press conference yesterday. Trump completely ignored ABC, CNN and NBC, instead calling on reporters from Townhall and the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Bibi Visits Trump And LEVELS Reporter Looking For A Fight- MEDIA DOWN!
President Donald Trump has walked in and is smoothing ruffled feathers and helping things to be strong and healthy again. And yet despite the incredible relationship that exists between Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu the media is crying that Donald Trump is anti-semitic… seriously???
“There is no greater support of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than president Donald Trump,” Netanyahu said resolutely. “I think we should put that to rest.”
Palestinians are hateful and evil. They are taught to love death and the highest honor in this lifetime for them is to kill Jews and infidels. John Kerry literally told Israel, you can be Democratic or Jewish, but not both.
Remember When: Hey Liberal Media, This Is Probably Why President Trump Didn’t Call On You Today
Our own Katie Pavlich asked President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about how to deal with Iran after their blatant violations of the nuclear agreement and what compromises both the Israelis and the Palestinians need to consider in their ongoing conflict with one another. These are legitimate questions.
As Cortney noted, the liberal media was ignored and they went into full meltdown mode. CNN’s Jim Acosta said that the “fix is in” concerning who will be able to ask the president questions, describing Townhall as “a very conservative website.”
[CtH: “A very conservative website” whose representative asked a really good question, as opposed to the Gotcha Flynn gloating CNN probably had planned!]
I’ll just leave this insufferable exchange between former President Obama and the Chicago Tribune’s Christi Parsons after his 2012 re-elect win to show why we probably shouldn’t be shocked that the Trump White House is taking questions from outlets who used to be left in the dark.
In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I’m sitting right here kind of in the middle of the pack of a number of journalists, mainstream reporters, if you will, and there is open anger in here about the fact the President did not take any real questions about the issue of the day.”
[CtH: You mean like the “real questions” you used to ask your BFF Barack?]
Karl sneered that Trump called on “friendly conservative news organizations.” He lashed out:
“Amazing that on a day like this he could have a press conference and not face a single question on the big story of this, the New York Times bombshell report that members of his campaign allegedly had contacts with the Russians during the campaign. No questions on that.”
[CtH: No, the questions were about ISRAEL, because, you know, their PRIME MINISTER WAS VISITING and THAT WAS THE TOPIC OF THE PRESSER.]
The question of the day, according to Vega, was Michael Flynn’s resignation.
Speaking for other journalists, she raged, “And so, you’re feeling an open sense of anger and frustration here.” Reporter Karl sputtered, “George, it is astounding. We have now had four presidential news conferences and the President, for the most part, has simply avoided calling on people from news organizations.”
[CtH: The ARROGANCE of them deciding who is and who isn’t a news organization! After the tingly legged, softball throwing, pillow fluffing these “real” news orgs didn for the past eight years. But hey, KEEP IT UP, MORONS. Cuz we’re really looking forward to EIGHT years in the TRUMP White House.]
“The two questions that were asked or called upon from the president in this news conference went to the Christian Broadcasting Network, which is obviously owned by Pat Robertson, the televangelist down in Virginia. It’s a very conservative broadcasting network, and Townhall.com, which is a very conservative news website,” Acosta said.
[CtH: And not a word about how GOOD those questions were, just sneering at the sources of the questions. This is a variation on the logical fallacy of arguing from authority. But golleeeeee, I’m just a loathsome conservative blogger, so what do I know?!]
Mainstream reporters are outraged that conservative media outlets are receiving a significant share of questions at White House press conferences.
Only liberal reporters, the line of reasoning goes, are capable of asking the tough questions needed to hold those in power accountable. Here are a sample of questions asked of former President Obama by mainstream reporters.
1. “Golf, what does it do for you?” – CBS
2. I’m wondering if you think that [Republican presidential candidates are] uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” – CNN
3.“Do you have a vindictive streak?” – NBC
4. What has “Enchanted you the most from serving in this office?”- NYTimes

I missed Meet The Press today, it interfered with Encore Western Channel’s tribute to Clint Eastwood. At least I have my priorities right.
Kellyanne Conway was on with F. Chuck Todd and set him straight. The Trump Administration won’t play the media’s game of defending itself against every liberal lie. We’ve been waiting a very long time for somebody with a spine to stop playing patty-cake with these braying jackasses.
Todd asked, “I’m curious why president Trump chose yesterday to send out his press secretary to essentially litigate a provable falsehood when it comes to a small and petty thing like inaugural crowd size. My question to you is why do that?
Conway said “Chuck, if we’re going to keep referring to our press secretary in those types of terms, I think we are going to have to rethink our relationship here. I want a great open relationship with our press.”
She added that Spicer gave the press “alternative facts” to the press to correct the record.
“Alternative facts are not facts. They are falsehoods,” shot back Todd.
Conway then cited the failed agenda of Barack Obama, with the loss of health insurance for millions of Americans, the 16.1 million women still living in poverty, and the billions spent of education that has done next to nothing to improve standards or conditions. That’s what Conway and this administration want the press to focus on since Obama’s failure is the reason they’re occupying the White House.
THE OLD BOSS: THE ONLY THING DIFFERENT IS THAT HE CAN DO NO MORE HARM
Some things never change! Obama heads back out on the golf course for a round on exclusive estate owned by billionaire Larry Ellison on his first full day of retirement (at least he’ll have time to work on his putting)
•The 44th president was up at 9am Pacific time for a trip to a country club’s gym
•It was near the Rancho Mirage, CA, home where he and Michelle are staying with friends for a two-week vacation.
•He was pictured in a Secret Service SUV leaving the private community of Thunderbird Heights and heading to the country club for a workout.
•Beside him in the SUV was his host James Costos, who was the ex-president’s ambassador to Spain.
•Then he went out to play golf at Porcupine Creek, a course owned by Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison.
•Former first couple’s final trip on the presidential flight was extended when it could not land at Palm Springs because of bad weather conditions.
Fiesta De Pijamas … At My Spanish Ambassador’s Crib
YOU DIDN’T THINK HE’D ACTUALLY PAY FOR ANYTHING, DID YOU?
HE’S LIKE A GUY WHO USES A PROSTITUTE AND SOMEBODY ELSE PAYS FOR IT.
The house is in Rancho Mirage, near Palm Springs, inside the Thunderbird Heights gated community … perched at the top of the development and spread over 8 acres. It’s been completely gutted and renovated since 2011 … and looks brand spanking new. The Obamas have stayed at James and Michael’s home 4 times prior to this visit.
As Donald and Melania Trump arrived for President Trump’s Inauguration, Melania Trump handed Michelle Obama a large, blue Tiffany’s box. Something that every woman in the world adores. Mooch… not so much. Leave it to Michelle Obama to look disdainful over an elegant gift from a woman that makes her look incredibly unfeminine. Mooch looked like she couldn’t get rid of the box fast enough, as if it were a bomb. Then she acted like she wanted to wipe her hands. Tres rude and totally in keeping with Michelle’s winning style.
THE NEW BOSS: NO MORE B.S. THERE’S WORK TO DO.
Trump Plans to Eliminate NEA, NEH, Cut Spending by $10.5 Trillion
The National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities would be eliminated, according to a new report on the administration’s spending priorities published by the Hill.
Both arts agencies have budgets of roughly $147 million. The NEA awards millions of dollars worth of grants for art projects each year, which have included plays about assassinating Christopher Columbus, food stamps, and gun-control activist lesbians, climate change poetry, and “Doggie Hamlet.”
REMEMBER ALL THE BIG SHOTS WHO WOULDN’T PERFORM FOR THE INAUGURATION? PAYBACK’S A BITCH
President Donald Trump Will Sign Executive Order Sunday to Defund International Planned Parenthood
Most pro-life Americans are anxiously awaiting Congress to pass a bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. While that defunding legislation concerns the domestic-based Planned Parenthood abortion corporation, President Trump has the ability to put in place an executive order that would revoke funding for its international affiliate.
When pro-abortion former President Barack Obama took office, Obama overturned a policy that prevented funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas. The Mexico City Policy covered over $400 million in federal funds, part of which flowed to the abortion businesses International Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International for their foreign efforts.
Trump Says NAFTA Renegotiations Are Set To Begin
The president seems keen on fulfilling this campaign promise to renegotiate current trade deals. A plan on the White House website says the U.S. will withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and that President Trump plans on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Alliance, NAFTA, enacted under President Bill Clinton.
President Trump spoke with both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Saturday. Leaders from both countries have expressed a willingness to renegotiate NAFTA.
