BOOM! Donald Trump Jr. DESTROYS Far Left Blowhard Michael Moore

On Friday far left hack Michael Moore attacked President Trump for not opening up the historic Mar-a-Lago property to shelter Floridians fleeing Hurricane Irma.

56,000 far left followers liked Michael Moore’s tweet.

On Sunday Donald Trump Jr. responded to Michael Moore.

Donald Trump, Jr.: “It’s on an island on both the ocean & intercostal and in a mandatory evacuation zone… probably not the best idea, but you know, narrative!”

It should be noted that on Friday Hurricane Irma was heading straight for Miami and Palm Beach where Mar-a-Lago is located.

Miss America Contestants Asked to Condemn President Trump

<p>Though the ominous feeling of concern for those in the path of Hurricane Irma in Florida hung heavy in the air, the show must go on. Miss America 2018 on ABC aired September 10<sup>th</sup> and throughout the show, donations for hurricane relief were solicited for those affected in both Texas and Florida. Never fear, though. Politics dominated the final question competition and yes, it was all about President Trump.</p>

Hurricane Party

As Hurricane Irma bears down upon Dixie and our relatives and friends from the coast come inland to higher ground a question comes to mind: can someone actually be Southern and have never hosted or been a guest at a hurricane party?

A hurricane party is a social event held by people in the coastal United States who live in hurricane alley between Maine and Texas and is common in the Southeast. The event is held during a hurricane. However the guests are typically allowed to stay with the host for 3–5 days (weather permitting) and guests, in return, bring hurricane supplies such as radios, first aid supplies, food, etc.

For everyone out there in harm’s way, God bless. And for the rest of y’all smoking cigars and drinking and feasting with family and friends – hope y’all have a great time and that Irma goes easy on your property.

AP, Media Show They Can Dish It Out But Can’t Take It in Harvey-EPA Spat

<p>As of late Sunday afternoon, the Associated Press's coverage of potential contamination resulting from Hurricane Irma in Florida, certainly a legitimate issue, was remarkably measured. That dispatch's tone starkly contrasted with how the AP, without genuine basis, went after the U.S. EPA after Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and how childishly it reacted when the EPA pushed back hard against the wire service and reporter Michael Biesecker, who had not only filed a fake news story about Trump administration EPA head Scott Pruitt in late June, but who also appears to have a personal vendetta against Pruitt.</p>

Steve Bannon Breaks Down Why He’s No Longer In the White House (VIDEO)

In a fascinating interview with 60 Minutes host Charlie Rose, Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon explained why he is no longer Chief White House Strategist. 

***Click here to watch the 60 Minutes segment***

Mediaite reports:

Throughout his interview on 60 Minutes, Bannon defended Donald Trump over a variety of tough questions and controversial matters shrouding the mogul’s presidency. This eventually prompted Rose to ask why Trump would’ve allowed such a stalwart supporter to leave his orbit in the White House.

“To be this strong a defender,” Rose asked, “why aren’t you there?”

Bannon answered that he was not cut out to be a staffer, and he talked about how he couldn’t fight for Trump as he wanted to as a government employee. From there, Rose asked Bannon about his reported conflicts with other Trump advisers, as well as Bannon’s comments about how the White House has never been so divided amongst itself.

Bannon said that the divide was the difference between those telling Trump to remain true to himself as he was during the election, and the advisors suggesting that the president work out compromises with his political opponents. Bannon also insisted that John Kelly never tried to have him removed from the Administration.

Bannon also spoke to Charlie Rose about the Trump administration’s “original sin” – embracing the swampy establishment.

Speaking to Rose, Bannon stated:

“In the forty-eight hours after we won, there’s a fundamental decision that was made . . . you might call it the original sin of the administration . . . We embraced the establishment. I mean, we totally embraced the establishment.”

Bannon went on to state that Senate Majority Mitch McConnell did not want the president to “drain the swamp,” and was actively acting against the interests of the president by repressing and attempting to dismantle the president’s populist agenda.

The former chief strategist commented that Ryan, McConnell, and other GOPe, “do not support the President’s program . . . it’s an open secret on Capitol Hill.”

Bannon on #60Minutes: ‘Hillary Clinton’s Not Very Bright’ (VIDEO)

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared on 60 Minutes with Charlie Rose and discussed a myriad of topics, from the GOP establishment trying to nullify Trump’s presidency to Hillary Clinton not being as smart as liberals always say she is . . .

“Her very first speech when she came off the beach was nonsense,” Bannon begins to Rose, “and this goes with something I want to address with you: Hillary Clinton’s not very bright.”

Bannon continues to describe the ways in which she failed during the election, and beyond.

“Everybody says she’s so smart, so much smarter than Donald Trump . . . She doesn’t really have a grasp, she doesn’t have a grasp on what’s important and what’s not – and that’s what’s essential in a leader. Donald Trump has a grasp on what’s important and what’s marginalia.”

Rose then pressed Bannon the ethno-nationalist descriptor she pinned to Breitbart and others on the New Right, but Bannon was quick to shut down the impending smear.

Rose asks, “Cause you want no part of ethno-nationalism?”

Bannon replies quickly, “That’s ridiculous on the face of it, it’s absurd . . .”

Rose: “You don’t want any part of any of those people?”

Bannon: “Not only is it morally wrong, it’s also totally irrelevant. Economic nationalism is what this country was built on, it’s the American system . . .”

UPDATED: SWAT End Standoff With Armed Looters at Sporting Goods Store In Orlando

Florida looters are targeting stores in areas impacted by Hurricane Irma. A SWAT operation in Orlando involving armed looters barricaded in a sporting goods is over.

*UPDATE*

“Burglary call at sporting goods store has been peacefully resolved. Two suspects in custody. No officers hurt,” say Orlando Police.

Breaking911 reports:

A SWAT operation was reportedly underway in Orange County Sunday as looters were attempting to steal guns from a sporting goods store.

According to local media, the standoff was ongoing at the ‘Academy Sports’ store as Hurricane Irma moved through the area. The scene is at 3557 Gardens Ridge Way—-near the Mall at Millenia.

One suspect has surrendered and another was barricaded inside and believed to be armed with stolen guns from the store.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

As TGP previously reported a WPLG camera crew caught looters breaking into stores in Fort Lauderdale as Hurricane Irma batters Florida.

WPLG reports:

Despite dangerous winds and heavy rain from Hurricane Irma, several looting incidents have been reported in Fort Lauderdale.

Local 10 cameras caught a group breaking into the Simon’s Sportswear on Sunrise Blvd. and Powerline Road.

The group of about 8-9 people broke through the front window and were seen walking in and then walking out with stolen items.

A group then began looting a Footlocker in the same area. It’s not known whether the groups were the same.

South Florida law enforcement officials promised to police the streets to prevent looting, but with unsafe winds currently pummeling the region, it’s not known if units are currently on patrol.

Bannon: I’ve Fought for Racial Unity All My Life; Don’t Need Lectures from ‘Limousine Liberals’

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon seen in an interview with Charlie Rose for CBS News' 60 Minutes.
Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon does not need lectures on race relations from “limousine liberals” and the media elites who hang out in largely homogenous crowds and whose oh-so-progressive-and-forward-looking organizations and outlets do not have the effortless diversity as Breitbart News’ masthead. In a 60 Minutes interview, Bannon told CBS anchor Charlie Rose that he was raised in a desegregated neighborhood on the North Side of Richmond, Virginia, that is “predominantly black.” “I went to an integrated school, a Catholic school. I served in the military,” he continued. “I don’t need to be lectured … by a bunch of limousine liberals, okay, from the Upper East Side of New York and from the Hamptons … about any of this. My lived experience is that.” Bannon also suggested that left-wing activists and the legacy media may be trying to play the race card because they know how successful and unifying the economic nationalist agenda, which Bannon said will unify Americans of all races, nationalities, religious, and sexual orientations—can be. Bannon has consistently denounced ethno-nationalists and white supremacists. He did so again to Rose. “[T]he Neo-Nazis and Neo-Confederates and the Klan, who, by the way, are absolutely awful – there’s no

Hillary Clinton: “Sexism, Misogyny” Prevented People From Voting For a Woman – After She Bragged About Winning Popular Vote (VIDEO)

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sat down with Jane Pauley on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ and gave her first T.V. interview since the 2016 presidential election.

Hillary spoke about her new memoir ‘What Happened’ which is set to release September 12.

Not only did Hillary Clinton blame Comey for her election loss when he decided to re-open the FBI investigation eleven days before the election, she doubled down on her ‘Deplorable’ insult to Trump supporters.

Hillary’s blame game continued during her interview when the issue of her being a female candidate arose. Hillary Clinton blamed sexism and misogyny for her election loss.

“I started the campaign knowing that I would have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president,” Hillary said.

“It doesn’t fit into the stereotypes we all carry around in our head and a lot of the sexism and misogyny was in service of these attitudes–like, you know, we really don’t want a woman Commander-in-Chief,” Hillary continued.

Oddly, sexism and the so-called Russian hacking only affected the electoral college because Hillary Clinton and her supporters routinely brag she received millions more votes than Trump. (most likely due to vote fraud)

Here is Hillary Clinton back in May bragging about winning the popular vote and getting 3 million more votes than Trump (video via Buzzfeed):

Left-Wing Antifa Terrorists ATTACK Police at Patriot Prayer Rally In Portland (VIDEO)

Sunday, left-wing Antifa terrorists ambushed the peaceful Patriot Prayer rally in Portland, Oregon at Waterfront Park.

The Patriot Prayer group is a conservative entity that is in no way affiliated with white nationalism. In response to the group showing up to peacefully assemble, hundreds of Antifa members swarmed to violently protest the assembly.

Portland Police put up barricades to separate the two parties, but they neglected to properly man the barricades and focused more on the roadways. Antifa quickly jumped on the opportunity and started throwing various projectiles and smoke bombs and some attacked officers with a fire extinguisher.

Antifa chased Patriot Prayer away after being approached by police officers in crowd control gear. Multiple Antifa arrests were made at the time and following those arrests, more Antifa began assaulting police officers with slingshots with at least one officer injured.

Video footage courtesy of Mike Bivins’ Twitter account.

People were allegedly throwing fireworks at cops, among other things:

Portland Police stated that “the crowd it has become violent and criminal in nature . . . If you are a peaceful protestor, leave now or be subject to arrest.”

Press down at the scene were also attacked:

AG Sessions Calls For National Security Council Staff To Take Lie Detector Test To Find Leakers

If Attorney General Jeff Sessions has his way, National Security Council staffers will undergo lie detector tests to find White House leakers. The Trump administration has been plagued by a series of leaks, ranging from transcripts of calls between President Trump and foreign leaders to reports of palace intrigue from top White House officials. 

Axios reports:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told associates he wants to put the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to root out leakers. It’s unclear whether this will ever happen, but Sessions floated the idea to multiple people, as recently as last month.

Sessions’ idea is to do a one-time, one-issue, polygraph test of everyone on the NSC staff. Interrogators would sit down with every single NSC staffer (there’s more than 100 of them), and ask them, individually, what they know about the leaks of transcripts of the president’s phone calls with foreign leaders. Sessions suspects those leaks came from within the NSC, and thinks that a polygraph test — at the very least — would scare them out of leaking again.

Sessions has told associates he likes the idea of targeting the foreign leader phone calls because there’s a small enough universe of people who would have had access to these transcripts. Also, the idea that the President of the United States can’t have private conversations with foreign leaders was a bridge too far, even for Democrats.

Ian Prior, a spokesman for Sessions, declined comment when presented with the details of this report.

Sessions himself was subject to a leak this week. Axios published a DHS press release ahead of AG Jeff Sessions’ press conference on DACA. In bullet form, reporter Johnathan Swan listed all the points Sessions covered during Tuesday’s announcement.

Axios reported:

Axios reports:

Axios obtained the DHS press release from outside sources and did not receive it from the department, so we are not abiding by the embargo instructions: (“embargoed until after AG remarks are delivered.”)

  • According to the DHS release, “yesterday, Attorney General Sessions sent a letter to Acting Secretary Duke articulating his legal determination that DACA ‘was effectuated by the previous administration through executive action, without proper statutory authority and with no established end-date, after Congress’ repeated rejection of proposed legislation that would have accomplished a similar result. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.’

 

  • “The letter further stated that because DACA ‘has the same legal and constitutional defects that the courts recognized as to DAPA, it is likely that potentially imminent litigation would yield similar results with respect to DACA.’

 

  • “Nevertheless, in light of the administrative complexities associated with ending the program, he recommended that the Department wind down the program in an efficient and orderly fashion, and his office has reviewed the terms on which the Department will do so.

 

  • “Based on guidance from Attorney General Sessions, and the likely result of potentially imminent litigation, Acting Secretary Elaine Duke today issued a memo formally rescinding the June 15, 2012 memorandum that created DACA, and initiating an orderly wind down of the program.”

AG Sessions announced in August that a crackdown on leakers will include a review of the DOJ’s policies of issuing subpoenas to media outlets publishing sensitive information.

“I have this message for our friends in the intelligence community–The Justice Department is open for business, and I have this warning for potential leakers: Don’t do it,” Sessions said.

Via The Hill:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday announced a government-wide crackdown on leakers, which will include a review of the Justice Department’s policies on subpoenas for media outlets that publish sensitive information.

At a press conference with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Sessions announced that the Justice Department, FBI and government intelligence agencies will direct more resources into the investigations of government leaks and would prioritize prosecuting those that pass sensitive information along to the press or foreign officials.

Sessions said his Justice Department has already tripled the number of active leak investigations over the previous administration, and that the FBI would create a new counterintelligence unit to manage the cases.

In addition, Sessions said that after meeting with FBI and intelligence investigators, the Justice Department would review its policies affecting media subpoenas.

“We respect the important role the press plays and we’ll give them respect, but it’s not unlimited,” Sessions said. “They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance the press’ role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the Armed Forces and all law-abiding Americans.”

Harvard Study Identifies The Gateway Pundit As One of the Most Influential Conservative Media Outlets in 2016

Guest post by Joe Hoft

An early 2017 study found The Gateway Pundit Was 4th Most Influential Right-Leaning Media Outlet during last year’s election. 

Only Breitbart, The Hill and FOX News were more influential to conservative audiences.

The right was dominated with trusted online media outlets and liberal media critics.

The left was dominated by biased old media outlets that carried water for Hillary Clinton.

The Columbia Journalism Review published an article in March entitled “Study: Breitbart-led Right-wing Media Ecosystem Altered Broader Media Agenda” that reported these conclusions.

Now according to another analysis of the 2016 Presidential election, the Gateway Pundit was again listed as one of the most shared media sources on the right in 2016.

The Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University recently released their report entitled, “Partisanship, Propaganda, and Disinformation: Online Media and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election”.  In the Executive Summary of the report they state the following:

In this study, we analyze both mainstream and social media coverage of the 2016 United States presidential election. We document that the majority of mainstream media coverage was negative for both candidates, but largely followed Donald Trump’s agenda: when reporting on Hillary Clinton, coverage primarily focused on the various scandals related to the Clinton Foundation and emails. When focused on Trump, major substantive issues, primarily immigration, were prominent. Indeed, immigration emerged as a central issue in the campaign and served as a defining issue for the Trump campaign.

We find that the structure and composition of media on the right and left are quite different. The leading media on the right and left are rooted in different traditions and journalistic practices. On the conservative side, more attention was paid to pro-Trump, highly partisan media outlets. On the liberal side, by contrast, the center of gravity was made up largely of long-standing media organizations steeped in the traditions and practices of objective journalism.

Of course, coming out of Far Left Harvard, the individuals who released the study ignore the fact that honest conservative media outlets like this one were created exactly because the Far Left leaning mainstream media (MSM) is nothing more than ‘highly partisan’ political talking heads for the globalist Democrat Party agenda.

We agree with the article in that President Trump succeeded in setting the discussion on issues during the election, such as immigration, jobs, etc.  Conservatives and Americans were more interested in debating these issues than Hillary’s entire campaign message “I am a woman, vote for me”.

The Harvard Study presents some interesting results.  The Gateway Pundit was one of the most popular conservative media outlets during the election.

The article also shows the relationship that conservative outlets maintained with each other during the election as noted in in the chart below showing Facebook shares:

This study is very similar to the study published in the Columbia Journalism Review which was funded by George Soros’s Open Society Foundations U.S. Program.

As noted in our post about the CJR study, we believe our efforts at the GWP helped President Trump immensely. Many of our readers have shared their gratitude for a job well done. 

Here are some additional assertions about the 2016 election that the study does not surmise:

 

  1. Americans want accurate, informative, and up to date information NOW and the MSM behemoths cannot or will not provide this service.
  2. As a result of the above, Americans are flocking in droves to new media sites like the GWP in order to obtain the truth that is not shared in the traditional MSM.
  3. The new media like the GWP did not originate due to American’s desire for sensationalism, the new media originated as a consequence of the MSM failing to share the truth.

Thank you all for your support.
