Trump ad: Democrats “complicit for every murder committed by illegal immigrants.”

A new ad popped up from President Trump’s re-election campaign Saturday that claps back hard against the Democrats’ insistence on dragging DACA and illegal immigration reform into the spending bill which currently has the government shut down. “Build the wall. Deport criminals. Stop illegal immigration now. Democrats who stand in our way will be complicit in every murder committed by ...

School assembly: Sex changes are “perfectly normal”

Back in December (just in time for the Christmas break), George Mason High School in Falls Church, Virginia held a school assembly with a special guest speaker. Washington Post columnist, author and Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Ellis Nutt arrived to lecture the children on a number of subjects, particularly transgender issues.

NFL conference championships open thread

Jazz: This post-season is obviously going to come down to the wire here at Hot Air. Last Sunday I decided to go with the “safe bet” in the early game and take the Steelers. For the late game, I took a flier on an upset in favor of the Saints. You probably already know how that worked out for me ...

Answering the call, or dodging the draft? Sunday reflection

This morning’s Gospel reading is Mark 1:14–20: After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand.

Just passing this along to show you how nasty the #SchumerSh*tholeShutdown turned in less than 24 hours.

It seems the DNC Chair really hates his job

Say, whatever happened to that guy who got stuck with the job of being DNC Chairman last year? You remember him, right… Tom Perez? He’s sort of dropped off the media radar lately. Maybe he’s just busy raising money and gearing up for the midterms. That would make sense, but things aren’t always that simple in the real world. I ...

Oh, by the way… Turkey just invaded Syria

It’s rather amazing how much news you can miss when the entire media machine is focused on something like the government shutdown. For just one minor example, did you know that Turkey invaded Syria yesterday? That probably sounds a bit dramatic (and to be honest, it wasn’t that much of an invasion) but it’s certainly accurate. Making good on President ...

Sunday morning talking heads

To think, just 72 hours ago it looked like this morning’s Sunday shows would be wall-to-wall retrospectives of Trump’s first year as president on the anniversary of his inauguration. Stuff happens, though, so instead it’ll be wall-to-wall shutdown fee-vah as Republicans and Democrats scramble to blame the other party for the mess. The White House’s chief advocate this morning is ...

Watch out. Former Catalan President to leave Belgium, risk arrest

As we discussed a little over a week ago, the leaders of Catalonia’s independence minded parties are preparing to caucus and most likely install exiled former regional President Carles Puigdemont to his old position. This presents several difficulties if only in terms of logistics. First of all, the would-be president is currently on the run in Belgium, facing possible extradition, ...
