Donald Trump, fake news and the US Constitution

In my commentary yesterday covering Donald Trump’s first press conference since last summer, I briefly mentioned his headline-grabbing bullying of a CNN reporter. You may recall that Trump accused CNN of being a “fake news” organization after lumping together a…

CNN hosts Paul Ryan’s town hall

One of the major highlights of CNN’s townhall meeting with Speaker Ryan at George Washington University came during the question of the night. That’s when Speaker Ryan announced that the House would repeal the ACA and pass the Republican replacement “at the same time, and in some cases in the same bill.” Speaker Ryan continued, […]

Did anyone really “win” the debate?

For the next week following the first presidential debate, America will ask and answer the wrong question: “Who won?” Answering this question demands that we first define “winning” in this context, which is only rhetorically possible. Like watching any other…

Donald J Trump Foundation: Another reason Trump should release tax returns

Kellyanne Conway was for releasing Trump’s tax returns before she was against it

Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s newest campaign manager–how many is that now?–told CNN in an interview that “Donald Trump’s tax returns aren’t [transparent], I would like to see them transparent.” Wait a minute [papers rustling]. I’m sorry, that was from an…

Did Trump just “pivot” on illegal immigration?

John Kasich displays his cowardliness with abortion issue

Via the Weekly Standard and the Federalist, there’s a lot of talk within the world of social conservatives about an exchange between Republican presidential candidate John Kasich and an audience member at a town hall meeting Wednesday afternoon. In the meeting a man stood up and told him point-blank that he’s looking for a president who’s a fiscal conservative and who’s also “not a threat to a woman’s right to control her own body.” Of course we know what that “women’s right” part means, right? The answer to the question by Kasich was pathetic to say the least, essentially saying that it’s the law of the land and we live with it. Meanwhile, when CNN asked him about abortion earlier this week, he dismissed the question by insisting that the GOP spends “too much” time on the issue when there are other important problems like infant mortality and the environment to focus on. I guess Kasich hasn’t heard about the Planned Parenthood videos exposing how they have been harvesting of body parts of murdered unborn—sometimes born alive—babies. Now that’s infant mortality! Kasich tells Obamacare opponents they’re going to hell, but won’t tell an abortion supporter that he thinks Roe v. […]

Trump favors funding the “good” part of Planned Parenthood

Ever since the heartbreaking revelation that Planned Parenthood is involved in selling the body parts of the babies murdered in their mother’s womb, the Republican candidates for president have unanimously called for defunding the Naziesque baby-killing factory, including Mr. Donald Trump, who as recently as last week had expressed in an interview with Hugh Hewitt that he would shut the government down in order to see it happen. Well… it appears that Trump is pulling an Obama, meaning that his position is quickly evolving. During an interview with CNN yesterday morning, Trump stated that abortion “should not be funded.” But when pressed on the “other services” offered by the abortion mill, he indicated that he was open to the idea of continuing to fund Planned Parenthood with taxpayer money: “I would look at the good aspects of it and I would also look because I’m sure they do some things properly and good, good for women, and I would look at that.” You know, I once read that David Berkowitz was pretty good at delivering the mail, but I don’t think that little bit of good made up for the mass murders he committed. I guess the Donald is unaware […]

Mitt Romney defends Obama while attacking Ted Cruz

On Tuesday, Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) had this to say about Obama’s deal with Iran: “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism. Billions of dollars under the control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans.” Not much to argue about, right? So you’d think a “severe conservative” like Mitt Romney would support Cruz for taking a strong conservative stand against the nuclear ambitions of a terrorist nation. Well… while the former Republican presidential candidate says he’s opposed to the Iran deal, he is attacking the current presidential candidate for his criticism of the agreement. I am opposed to the Iran deal, but @SenTedCruz is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge. Hurts the cause. — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) July 30, 2015 Maybe Mittens should spend a few of his millions to buy a clue. In a recent CNN interview, National Security Adviser Susan Rice admitted the Obama deal will give Iran access to up to $150 billion to spend as it wishes and would do nothing […]

Conservative Comedy 5/8/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change would like to take this opportunity to reflect on Mother’s Day (the most sacred of all Hallmark holidays). And who better exemplifies all things maternal than Hillary Clinton? Sure, she once denigrated women who do things like staying home and baking cookies for their families. And she humiliated her young daughter during the White House years by dragging her around as a prop to pose with her cheating, DNA-spewing dog of a husband. And she underpays her female staffers who may themselves be moms. But Hillary has a soft, sentimental motherly side, too! Jodi Miller at Newsbusted takes us into the weekend with these headlines: Liberals still want Hillary Clinton to be their candidate, Donald Trump wants to see Hillary’s birth certificate, and Obamacare is causing a rise in food stamps. Additional stories include: A rise in STDs among seniors, VA waiting lists are still high, and CNN hires 40 new reporters. […]

Conservative Comedy 9/26/14

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The Secret Service is in some not-too-secret trouble following an incident Friday in which a man with a knife climbed over the White House fence, ran 70 yards across the lawn, and then entered the White House through an unlocked front door. Fortunately, and entirely unsurprisingly, neither the president nor his family were in the White House at the time, having left for a weekend retreat at Camp David. Not that one man with a knife could really do much damage anyway without access to ISIS’s YouTube account. At least, that’s how the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change sees it. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides plenty of laughs this week on several news stories, including: record tax revenues for Uncle Sam and how it’s being spent, the record number of food stamp recipients, and the record income being earned by non-citizens. Additional stories include: marijuana legalization in California, the special qualification that got Jay Carney his job at CNN, and […]

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Obama has finally decided that he must send troops to fight the greatest threat to American security. No, not ISIS. Barry is committing 3000 troops to  fight against Ebola. Hey, at least he’s fighting something, even if it is a germ instead of journalist-decapatating terrorists. Although, it would have been nice if he could have done so without lecturing us about the many cultural and scientific contributions Ebola made to helping us land a man on the moon. At least, that’s how the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change sees it. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides plenty of laughs this week on several news stories, including: Barry’s sinking approval numbers, Jay Carney’s current employment situation, and EBT cards being used at marijuana retailers. Additional stories include: a new talking Obama doll, how ISIS handles social media, Detroit’s bankruptcy, and Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. If it’s in the news, Jodi has something to say about it. By the way, Newsbusted […]

Conservative Comedy 9/5/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Among the news stories that Obama is actively ignoring in the “social media” are reports of a possibly imminent terrorist attack on the United States from the southern border. Intelligence sources say there is increased “chatter” suggesting that such an attack might be carried out to commemorate the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. And frankly, Hope n’ Change is glad that the intelligence agencies are raising the alarm now since, as demonstrated by the deaths of Americans in Benghazi, it never occurred to anyone in Obama’s entire freaking administration that September 11th just might be a day each year to be especially vigilant. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted provides plenty of laughs this week on several news stories, including: Barry and Michelle’s marriage troubles, race relations in America, and the reason for CNN’s recent layoff announcement. Additional stories include: the 2014 Senate races, declining IQ scores in America, and Supreme Court justice who provided the inspiration for the NBC TV series, […]

Conservative Comedy 5/30/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The VA scandal (FOX News’ Judge Jeanine is right when she say that criminal charges should start with negligent homicide of veterans, and move out and up from there). Michelle Obama’s school lunch program. The 9/11 Museum’s increasingly infamous gift shop. The zero-gravity pissing match between Russia and the United States where Putin has declared he will cut off our access to the International Space Station. In Obama’s America, it’s sometimes hard to find just one thing for the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change to comment on. So this week, he tells it like it really is with a cartoon that pretty much sums up how many are feeling in America today. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted is back from taking some time off. With the VA scandal, MSNBC has taken steps to show its support of their BFF in the White House; Adam Corrolla has a new book out that mentions some interesting things about the Gay Mafia, and John Kerry has agreed to testify in the Benghazi hearings. These are […]

Conservative Comedy 3/7/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Obama has definitely thrown a darn good scare into Putin with all of his talk of seriously considering joining a coalition of nations in affirming the remote possibility of “costs” for further military activity, which is why Vladimir now says he may not need to immediately invade the rest of Ukraine (boy, that’s a relief!). The fact that he then test-fired an ICBM missile and threatened to destroy the United States economically was probably just a little temper tantrum based on Obama’s clear foreign policy victory. Talk about being a sore loser! In this season of Mardi Gras, the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change gives us the proper perspective on how Putin sees Obama’s feckless foreign policy on the matter. We have two reports from Jodi Miller at Newsbusted. Headlines for this week’s episodes include: The Oscars, Arizona’s Religious Freedom Protection law, Hillary Clinton’s possible 2016 run for President, and advances in robotics. Some of the other stories covered are: Susan Rice’s similarity to dogs, […]
