Mark Levin on media freakout over Trump-Putin summit

Mark "the Great One" Levin adds much needed historical perspective on the so-called "treasonous" remarks by President Donald Trump at his joint press conference with Vladmir Putin. After all, it was the Democrats who defended the traitors Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, as well as Alger Hiss. Their hero Franklin D. Roosevelt handed eastern Europe to Joseph Stalin in 1945.

It was their "Lion of the Senate," Teddy Kennedy, who colluded with the Soviet Union to unseat Ronald Reagan in the 1980s.

Plastic Straw Myths

Leftists have a new straw man argument. Straws need to be banned.

A video from John Stossel exposes the truth.

MSNBC leaves bubble, talks to Trump voters, discovers he still has strong support

Good lord. Leftist MSNBC left its safe zone in Manhattan and actually did some journalistic work. A report flew to Kenosha County, Wisconsin, which is not too far from Marathon Pundit world headquarters, and learned that voters there--the county hadn't voted for a Republican candidate for president since 1972--still back Donald J. Trump.

Facebook big shot can't decide on whether to ban a page that calls for shooting Republicans

There's s Facebook page that calls for shooting Republicans FB's president for Global Policy Management, Monika Bickert, in testimony to a congressional committee yesterday, wasn't able to provide that committee a solid answer on what it takes to get banned from Facebook.



Endgadget has more:
Bickert was given an example by Rep. Gaetz (R-FL) about a page on Facebook called "Milkshakes Against the Republican Party," which he said had multiple posts urging people to shoot members of his party. He said he reported the posts using the site's flagging tools, but that he received a response saying they didn't go against Facebook's Community Standards. Gaetz said the posts were removed eventually, though the page in question still exists. "Any calls for violence violates our terms of service," said Bickert. "So why is Milkshakes Against the Republican Party a live page on your platform?" asked Rep. Gaetz, adding that Facebook executives told him, "Well, we removed those specific posts, but we're not going to remove the entire page."
There is some good news. Apparently the repulsive page has finally been banned.

(PragerU) Public Union: Public Enemy

Yes, public-sector unions are a public enemy.

Fortunately these public fiends are less powerful after the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of an Illinois government employee--a true patriot--who didn't want his pocket picked by the AFSCME union so it could fund left-wing politicians.

Leftist Chicago alderman proposes free basic income for residents of broke city

Chicago's reckless spending has placed America's third-largest--for now--city into bankruptcy in all but name.

What to do? If you are a leftist Chicago alderman, then you double down on failure.

From Fox News:
Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program.

Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported.

“Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having a tough time making ends meet or putting food on the table at the end of the month.”
Pawar campaigned to earn a slot on the ballot for Illinois governor, but withdrew his name from contention after being outspent by his opponents, the outlet reported.

Dobbs: Trump critics after Putin joint press conference are "morons," says controversy is "stupid stuff"

Taking its lead from disgraced-former CIA director John Brennan--who should be investigated for his role in building the Donald Trump-Russia collusion fable--he called the president "treasonous" for after Trump's joint press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin. And the left-wing media predictably pounced.

As if on cue.

Lou Dobbs on his Fox Business show shed some sanity on to the controversy, calling theme "morons" and the whole dust-up "stupid stuff."

From the Daily Caller, which has the video clip.
“I think the president handled himself perfectly,” said Dobbs. “What would it have taken to satisfy the morons that you saw on those clips? I mean … And what is his name, Brennan? He’s the biggest joke I have seen. What is he supposed to say?”

“We’re going to settling this now, toe-to-toe with the Russkies, right now here in Helsinki?” asked Dobbs rhetorically. “We’ll see whose ICBM gets to which city the fastest? What are you talking about? This is stupid stuff. This beyond the pale, as far as I’m concerned. He is beginning a relationship with Putin, and if his intelligence community is so smart … where are the servers?”

“I think there’s nothing he could do to satisfy [critics],” Goodwin added. [Goodwin did say that Trump missed an opportunity to put the collusion story to bed.]

Dobbs made the point that other world leaders, including Chinese leader Xi Jinping, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, and even Germany’s Angela Merkel aren’t exactly “good guys,” and yet we engage in diplomacy with them
Dobbs called Trump's three predecessors "outright jokes," adding "the fact this country survived those three folks is amazing to me.”

Judge Jeanine: Strzok is personification of the deep state

Judge Jeanine Pirro rightly calls disgraced FBI agent Peter "Stroke" Strzok smug and arrogant--and the personification of the deep state.

Mark Dice: Stop Mentioning Facts!

On CNN yesterday Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said that, yes, we too have meddled in other people's elections. Which is something that former CIA director James Woolsey says has occurred too.
