Anna Paulina Luna is many things; US Air Force veteran with an Honorable Discharge, current Air Force spouse, past model for Maxim and Sports Illustrated, former Director of Hispanic Engagement for the very conservative Turning Point USA (Latina of Mexican heritage), censored (yanked) halfway through an interview with Fox News for referring to twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to herpes.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar may be one of two Muslim women first elected to the US House of Representatives (Rashida Harbi Tlaib (D-MI) of “impeach that mother f*cker” fame being the other), but she just may have stooped even lower than her sister in Mohammad with her latest foray into the public eye.
At least that’s what CNBC’s David Faber and Jim Cramer have alluded to on in the air.
With almost no coverage by the Establishment Media, it was only Rush Limbaugh who caught who caught the provocative back-and-forth between Cramer and Faber in the mere hours following the final congressional vote.
FABER: It’s a good thing. Do you think there’s a coordinated effort, that there was some sort of conversation between some of these companies or some sort of coordinating body that said this is something that might be a good thing for you to consider doing? I don’t know. Just curious that — I don’t think anybody was anticipating it until we saw the announcement from AT&T, and then it was so quickly followed by Wells and Fifth Third, our parent company, but obviously there’s so many others that could be doing the same thing.
CRAMER: If it was coordinated then there should —
FABER: A lot more, right?
CRAMER: — have been a lot more than six companies.
Keep in mind, at the moment of the Faber-Cramer on-air comments, only six companies had announced they would pass on the benefits of the new legislation on to their employees. Since the CNBC airing, dozens of more companies are jumping on the tax cut bandwagon.
AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. said they would pay a $1,000 bonus to most of their U.S. workers, more than 300,000 people combined. The president signed the tax legislation on Friday.
Other banks have also announced pay increases since the tax bill passed Congress. Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC), PNC Financial Services Group Inc., BB&T Corp. and Fifth Third Bancorp said they would raise their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Bank of America already pays its employees that minimum wage. Some of those banks are also paying certain employees a one-time bonus similar to Bank of America’s.
Did you know that the Russians actually put forth a huge effort to convince the American people the the recently elected President Donald Trump had no business being moving to the White House, and actually sought to de-legitimize his win in 2016?
If you didn’t know, don’t feel bad. The Establishment Media has either given this bombshell news either scant attention, if not completely ignored it.
With the Swamp Democrats and their GOP Establishment allies, along with their always reliable media stooges, this up-to-date Axis of Evil has done everything in their power to persuade the people that evil Donald Trump was secretly colluding with equally evil Vladimir Putin to steal the presidential election from the virginal Hillary Clinton.
But amazingly enough, Facebook’s general counsel attorney Colin Stretch testified before the Senate’s Judiciary Committee’s Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee, the Democrat and RINO narrative has been turned on its head.
As reported by Politico’s Nancy Scola and Ashley Gold (emphasis mine);
Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump’s victory.
Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.” That’s a change from Russia’s pre-election activity, which was largely centered on trying to denigrate Hillary Clinton, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a January report.
“During the election, they were trying to create discord between Americans, most of it directed against Clinton. After the election you saw Russian-tied groups and organizations trying to undermine President Trump’s legitimacy. Is that what you saw on Facebook?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked at the hearing.
Stretch and his Twitter counterpart, Sean Edgett, called that an “accurate” statement.
However as NewsBusters.org reporter Kyle Drennen published, the big three network news channels failed to objectively and honestly report the unvarnished news as it was breaking on Capitol Hill (emphasis mine);
While the broadcast networks all eagerly hyped social media executives being hauled before Congress on Tuesday to testify about Russian interference in the 2016 election, only CBS covered a revelation from the hearing that Russia sought to undermine Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president after the campaign was over.
On Tuesday, The Hill reported a specific example of how Russian-backed groups worked to undermine Trump immediately after the election. A left-wing protest against the then-President-elect was attended by thousands of demonstrators outside Trump Tower on November 12, 2016 and was “organized by the Facebook page for BlackMattersUS, a Russian-linked group that sought to capitalize on racial tensions between black and white Americans.”
At least CBS noted the fact that the President was a target of Russian propaganda, NBC and ABC didn’t bother to include that detail in their coverage of the hearing. Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News had a full report on the testimony and Wednesday’s Today show offered a 25-second news brief on how “officials from Facebook and Google and Twitter took a lashing from lawmakers over Russia’s involvement in last year’s presidential election.”
Not only did Joy Villa shock Tinsel Town when she recently showed up to the Grammy Awards decked-out in a very Trumpian “Make America Great Again” dress, she also drew the ire of many in the world of entertainment.
Getting the last laugh, Villa’s digital album “I Make the Static” rocketed to #1 on the Amazon and iTunes charts.
But it looks as if the Los Angeles-born singer just may want to get another laugh on the Hollywood liberal elite. Villa appeared on Fox & Friends in regards to her mulling a congressional run.
At first blush, Rep. Don Bacon comes off as a very loose cannon in the House of Representatives. To be honest, my first thought was that he was some big mouthed congressman from East Toilet Seat in desperate need of media attention.
