Do you remember the time not so very long ago when, according to Democrats and liberals, big money in politics was the most evil thing about our political system? Well that was then. Starting most noticeably during the presidential campaign last Fall when Hillary Clinton outspent the Donald Trump campaign by about 2 to 1, Democrats and liberals have developed newfound respect for big money in politics to the extent they now actually brag about it. The latest example is Vox hyping big campaign spending in an article whose very title positively exults that Georgia Dems normally raise $10,000 for this House seat. This April they’ll have $3 million.

The liberal media want it both ways. While they laugh at those who call Democrats the “abortion party,” they, at the same time, insist that the party unabashedly support abortion – no matter the cost. On Monday, The New York Times published an op-ed with the headline “To Win Again, Democrats Must Stop Being the Abortion Party.” Written by Thomas Groome, professor of theology and religious education at Boston College, the piece argued that Democrats should change their tone on abortion to win back the Catholic vote.

Appearing as a guest on Friday's Hardball, MSNBC's Joy Reid claimed that Donald Trump's voters wanted him to "get all the brown people" off Obamacare instead of themselves. And then, following up on her AM Joy show the next morning, she hosted New York magazine columnist Frank Rich to discuss his latest article, "No Sympathy for the Hillbilly," in which he argued that Democrats are misguided in thinking that spending more time being sympathetic to Trump voters will lead them to future electoral success as they should work to boost their base turnout instead.

Nursing its liberal obsession with “income inequality,” the New York Times made it the cover story of its Sunday Book Review. Economist Angus Deaton, who won the Nobel in 2015, penned the lead review of “The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution – Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic,” by Ganesh Sitaraman, under the headline “When the Rich Get Richer.” The online headline: “It’s Not Just Unfair: Inequality Is a Threat to Our Governance.” But Deaton showed an incredible lack of understanding of American wealth in a previous statement: “If you had to choose between living in a poor village in India and living in the Mississippi Delta or in a suburb of Milwaukee in a trailer park, I'm not sure who would have the better life."

This past Sunday’s edition of 60 Minutes featured a piece by CBS’s Scott Pelley examining the idea of fake news, but it was far from perfect with a glaring omission, a shocked host and guest that liberals fall for fake news, and downright hypocrisy from the network that promulgated Dan Rather’s fake news.

With no sense of irony, longtime liberal journalist Ted Koppel on Sunday embraced the idea that it’s Sean Hannity and conservatives in the media who are “bad for America.” The CBS Sunday Morning senior contributor investigated why “we Americans occupy alternate universes” when it comes to facts and our media choices. Unsurprisingly, the partisan journalist mostly blamed this on the right and didn’t look in the mirror.

Apparently not content with just having all of its hosts and correspondents relentlessly attack the Trump administration and the Republican Party, NBC News decided to hire Barack Obama’s former White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a “political analyst” to join in the network’s savaging of the GOP.

With Starbuck’s stock underperforming, its about time someone questioned Starbucks’s liberal agenda. Just don’t expect the media to care. A conservative think tank, The National Center for Public Policy Research, confronted outgoing controversial Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. As an owner of Starbucks stock, the group sent its General Counsel Justin Danhof to Starbucks’s annual shareholders meeting on March 22. There, he questioned Schultz for his public liberal opinions that may have hurt the company’s stock price. In reference to Schultz’s Jan. 29 decision that Starbucks would hire 10,000 refugees, Danhof asked Schultz “How much will Starbucks investors have to spend so that the company can properly vet refugees that the federal government admits it can’t afford to vet?”

Monday on Good Morning America, ABC analyst Matthew Dowd used yet another wacky analogy to advise the president on how he should behave. After gleefully hyping Trump’s “stunning” and “devastating” defeat on repealing Obamacare, the panel wondered how Trump was going to be able to deliver on any of his other campaign promises. Dowd lectured that the onus was on Trump to “fundamentally change” who he was, to appease Democrats.

This season of American Crime has been documenting (no pun intended) the plight of illegal immigrant farm workers as well as prostitution and drug use/addiction. In Sunday night’s episode, “Season Three: Episode Three,” all three issues were somehow tied together, as farm owners Jeanette (Felicity Huffman) and JD (Tim DeKay) attended a worker’s rally.

In Sunday night’s episode of NBC’s Chicago Justice titled “Dead Meat”, pig farm owner John Beckett (Michael Rispoli) is on trial for arson and the death of an employee. Beckett tells his jury at trial that he was swimming in debt due to government over-regulation.

Scott Adams, the Dilbert cartoonist who has been portraying life in the office cubicle for over three decades, spotted the Donald Trump phenomenon early on, wrote that "I have never seen better" persuasion skills, and ultimately predicted that Trump would win the presidency. Bloomberg Businessweek's Caroline Winter, apparently originally believing like so many others that Adams would be proven decisively wrong and that she could punish him quickly for his errancy after the results came in, interviewed Adams a week before Election Day. When Bloomberg finally published her hit piece early Wednesday morning, it took Adams less than half a day to rip her "fake news" to shreds.

The prolonged free agency of cop-hating, baggage-toting quarterback Colin Kaepernick has prompted the formation of a new sports fantasy game. It’s best played by race-baiting, left-stream talk show performers who have the unique ability to read the minds of NFL owners and general managers.

Chelsea Clinton is 37 years old — 19 years past the minimum voting age, 16 years over the legal age to drink, no longer entitled to reflexive press protection as the daughter of a Democratic President or presidential candidate, and thus eligible for ridicule when she deserves it — even if the establishment media's gatekeepers don't like it. I'd suggest that if you really have to ask, as Chelsea Clinton did, if a "Make America Great Again" hat seen on a rendering of Abe Lincoln on the cover of a Republican Party dinner program has been "photoshopped," you deserve every bit of the ridicule coming your way.

On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, far-left comedian Bill Maher made plenty of room for crass and hyperbolic attacks on President Donald Trump. The show featured everything from incest jokes about Ivanka Trump to offering a serious warning that President Trump might follow Adolf Hitler's lead in bringing "fascism" to America after a terrorist attack reminiscent of the burning of the Germany Reichstag building in the 1930s.
