America’s most well-known house-flipper Jeff Lewis is returning this September for season 11 of his hit Bravo TV show Flipping Out. By the looks of the trailer released this week, season 11 will be fantastic.
Via WFB, April Ryan, White House reporter for American Urban Radio Networks and CNN analyst, was on Don Lemon’s show on CNN last night where she let her media bias loose. She said Russian President Vladimir Putin is “big pimping” President Donald Trump, adding the United States is “going down a line of a dictatorship” like Russia or China.

MSNBC primetime anchor Lawrence O’Donnell visited C-Span’s Washington Journal on Tuesday to talk about his newly updated book ‘Deadly Force.’ During the interview, Larry gave a complete defense of socialism which is in line with Larry’s party. He mentions the differences between “socialism” and “democratic socialism” are ‘semantics’ (which is NOT true at all).
Larry also described Medicare as a “very smart socialistic program” (even though Medicare is $48T+ short in unfunded liabilities – T as in TRILLION) and praised state-driven centralized economic planning. If you are against socialism, Larry thinks your ignorant (his own words).
Socialism, whether democratic socialism or full socialism is bad policy and never ends up doing what it promises to do (except to make the ruling elite richer). Several countries have moved away from democratic socialism.
Socialism, like Liberalism, only redistributes misery. Capitalism is the only solution to fight poverty.
President Donald Trump has been relentlessly attacking former FBI Director James Comey on Twitter. CNN’s Jake Tapper called out the president for what he perceived to be hypocrisy over pardoning ex-Dick Cheney aide Scooter Libby but, ended up lying himself.
Calling @Comey a “proven LEAKER & LIAR” while you’re about to pardon Scooter Libby, who leaked the identity of a covert CIA employee and was convicted for lying about it to the FBI — well, that’s quite a thing.
— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 13, 2018
Every one in D.C. knows the true leaker in the case was Richard Armitage – even the Special Counsel appointed to prosecute the leak. Fact is, Mr. Libby was NEVER prosecuted for leaking the name. Mr. Libby was charged with obstruction of justice and perjury. Shame on Jake Tapper. Mr. Libby has never denied the seriousness of the offenses for which he was convicted and one of the chief witnesses in the case against Mr. Libby has recanted her testimony.
Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald was appointed by his friend James Comey, then deputy attorney general. From the start, Mr. Fitzgerald knew that the critical “leak” to Novak had come from then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage. He nevertheless commenced an extensive investigation to “discover” what had happened.
The charges against Mr. Libby were based on his description of various conversations he had with journalists at the time, including the New York Times’s Judith Miller. Based on notes she had made containing the word “bureau” in association with Ms. Plame’s job, Ms. Miller became the only reporter to testify that Mr. Libby had discussed Ms. Plame’s CIA connection with her. Mr. Fitzgerald called her testimony “critical” in his closing argument to the jury, which found Mr. Libby guilty on four of five counts.
But Ms. Miller later realized her testimony had been mistaken. Ms. Plame published a memoir in late 2007, months after Libby’s trial. In Ms. Miller’s 2015 book, “A Reporter’s Story,” she writes that one particular point in Ms. Plame’s account immediately caught her eye: Ms. Plame’s CIA “cover” had been as an employee of a State Department bureau. Mr. Libby would have known the CIA has “divisions,” not “bureaus.” He could not, therefore, have been the person who revealed Ms. Plame’s CIA connection to Ms. Miller.
Ms. Miller did not recognize her mistake when preparing her trial testimony, because she did not know that Ms. Plame had a State Department cover. Had she known, she would not have claimed she and Mr. Libby had discussed Ms. Plame’s CIA status. But Mr. Fitzgerald knew, and Ms. Miller believes he deliberately led her away from the truth.
All this means that Mr. Libby was telling the truth about his conversations with Ms. Miller, and that he did not deliberately mislead Mr. Fitzgerald’s grand jury or the FBI. For her part, Ms. Miller had not lied at Mr. Libby’s trial; she had given false testimony in good faith. “With the information about Plame’s cover that Fitzgerald had withheld, it was hard not to conclude that my testimony had been wrong,” she writes. “Had I helped convict an innocent man?”

On CNBC’s Squak Box this morning, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer says that if Democrats regain the majority after the 2018 election, they will look to raise taxes. This is in concurrence with the plan the Senate Democrats have announced.
As Bill Clinton found out, raising taxes is a recipe for political disaster and poor economic results (like we had under Obama).
Via WFB, a new SUPERcuts! video shows how the MSNBC anchors and pundits have dabbled in conspiracy theories in the last year. My favorite is Ali Velshi thinking he’s a ‘secret’ member of the NRA. What is yours?
Capital One® has been airing an amusing series of commercials, featuring Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson and Spike Lee going to the Final Four, during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament (a.k.a. ‘March Madness’) since at least 2015. My favorite commercial this year is titled ‘Welcome’ and is one of the funniest yet featuring CBS’ Jim Nance.
