The Whole Story On CNN’s Jim Acosta White House Episode, Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

CS Commentary: We disagree with Hemingway’s conclusion here – when the White House press corp acts like spoiled kids in White House press briefings, they should be treated as such and punished. In this case, barring Acosta from the White House should have been done long ago.

Trump Did The Right Thing By Firing The Incompetent Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Gregg Jarrett, Fox News

CS Commentary: Session’s firing should also be one of the last nails in the coffin of the ‘Q’ conspiracy theory since one of ‘Q’s’ major tenets all along has been that Mueller and Sessions were secretly working behind the scenes – with Trump – to expose the elites in the ‘swamp.’ See the Politics Common Sense Interpretation Page for more.

Asia Bibi And 1400 Years Of Muhammad ‘Blasphemers’, Raymond Ibrahim

Quote: “This is the crux of the issue: Muslims believe they have a mission to spread Islam. But when those who are invited to Islam seriously examine the teachings and life of its founder, they respond with incredulity and outrage that anyone could accept Muhammad as a man of God — much less a prophet.”

Hey Hollywood, Here Are Some Real – Not Fictional – Historical Epics To Produce, Raymond Ibrahim

Quote: “[The film Kingdom of Heaven] …conforms to the mainstream narrative, the “lesson,” [that is,] if you ignore another inconvenient fact: that the crusaders marched in the first place to alleviate the sufferings of their eastern co-religionists, which had reached an unbearable and all time high at the hands of Muslim Turks in the late eleventh century…that the crusades are the only instance in a millennium of warfare between Islam and the West that feature Christians marching onto Muslim territory—as opposed to century after century of the opposite—means that they will remain a favorite for Hollywood.”

America’s Cold Civil War, Charles R. Kesler, Imprimus

Quote: “A cold civil war is better than a hot civil war, but it is not a good situation for a country to be in. Underlying our cold civil war is the fact that America is torn increasingly between two rival constitutions, two cultures, two ways of life.”

Review: Nathan Fillion Is Masterfully Charming In ‘The Rookie,’ USA Today

CS Commentary: Most of the critics did not seem to like ‘The Rookie’ much based on the pilot, but 3-4 shows in its consistently entertaining and funny – an interesting look into the average beat cop in the Los Angeles police force. But, better series than this on network TV have bitten the dust, so who knows whether the show will last. Let’s hope so, because shows like ‘Seal Team,’ ‘For The People,’ ‘The Gifted,’ and others pale in comparison to the canceled ‘The Crossing’ and ‘The Brave.’ It would be nice to see a solid show actually stay on the air for a while.
