Put this one in the loony lefty bin. Hollywood actress Patricia Arquette, known for winning the best supporting actress Oscar two years ago, revealed she’s a conspiracy theorist last night on Twitter. After an Islamic terrorist killed 4 people and wounded at least 40 others in London Wednesday, the actress claimed it was all a ruse by President Trump to distract us from the FBI investigation into his ties with Russia:
One would hope that the Washington Post, where the news masthead is "Democracy Dies in Darkness," and whose emails soliciting subscriptions tell recipients that "Democracy needs great journalism," searched far and wide for the most credible person they could possibly find to criticize the foreign-policy impact of how the Trump administration "twists the truth." Apparently, the best person they could find for the job was ... Susan Rice?
ABC’s terror-themed drama Quantico is back again for its second season and ready to make conservatives and Donald Trump the enemy, instead of actual terrorists, according to a new report in the Hollywood Reporter. After a few attacks on Republicans, Tea Partiers and Trump fans in the first season, show frontrunner Joshua Safran said in an interview published Wednesday that he had plans for more overtly anti-Trump episodes in the works for season two.
On Saturday, Harvard law professor, lifelong Democrat and dogged Bill Clinton defender during the late-1990s Monica Lewinsky saga Alan Dershowitz was interviewed on Fox & Friends about U.S. Court rulings in Hawaii and Maryland halting enforcement of the Trump administration's revised temporary travel ban against six countries. Dershowitz, who strongly disagrees with the judges' rulings, made a point which the press has almost uniformly failed to note, and which echoes something I am told the State of Hawaii's Attorney General openly admitted during his court arguments, namely that if former President Barack Obama had issued the exact same order during his administration, it would have been upheld, or even litigated. But because it was Donald Trump's order, it was halted.
Late Wednesday evening, a federal judge in Hawaii put a temporary hold on the implementation of the White House’s revised travel ban. The development was celebrated by the left and championed by the liberal media. “There’s new fallout this evening after President Trump now faces his second defeat on his proposed travel ban. The revised ban blocked just hours before it took effect,” stated anchor David Muir during World News Tonight, Thursday evening.
Late Wednesday evening, news broke that another liberal judge had put a temporary hold on the implementation of President Donald Trump’s travel ban. And during CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, commentator Van Jones voiced his approval. “An action can be ruled unconstitutional if it's on the face of it, it looks like it's a good thing but there's an intent that's unconstitutional,” he argued, “There's a discriminatory intent here. And the discriminatory intent of the Trump administration is clear.”
As the Hollywood Left is wont to do, Tuesday night’s episode of NBC's Taken was filled with lessons on judgment and prejudice from a liberal point of view. In an effort to impart the lesson that not all Muslims are terrorists, Taken takes an extreme left turn that defies all logic and reason by shifting the blame for terrorism onto white, male, government officials.
Appearing as a guest on Sunday's CNN Newsroom to promote the latest episode of his series Believer, CNN host Reza Aslan tried to tie recent bomb threats against Jewish community centers to "rhetoric that's coming out of the White House." It was not mentioned that many of the threats are believed by law enforcement to have originated overseas, or that the one man who has been charged for a small portion of them was an anti-Trump liberal.
Chalk up another doozy for fake news at Univision. It turns out that while anchor Jorge Ramos was out visiting with Klansmen to hype his ‘Hate Rising’ narrative in advance of last year’s election, the nation’s historic premier hate group was actually in the midst of a massive collapse in membership.
CBS Evening News was steeped in mystery Tuesday as they hyped anonymous sources that suggested President Donald Trump was playing up the threat from the Middle East. “There is a controversy tonight inside U.S. intelligence over whether the Trump administration is exaggerating the threat from Muslim countries,” announced anchor Scott Pelley as he noted debate is encouraged, “But Jeff Pegues reports that this is different because some analysts believe they're being pressured to report the results that the White House wants to hear.”
Emphasizing its newly discovered commitment to aggressive journalism now that Donald Trump is president, the New York Times has hired a fact-checker from PolitiFact to bolster its case for lying Trump. Twice in two days Linda Qiu has slammed President Trump’s alleged falsehoods. On Saturday she went after Trump's speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference: “After Denouncing ‘Fake News,’ a Catalog of Falsehoods.”
On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, host Poppy Harlow repeatedly showed skepticism that there have been cases of men or boys taking advantage of transgender bathroom or changing room rules to commit sex crimes as she focused on liberal hysteria over the Trump administration canceling Obama administration rules mandating transgender students be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice. CNN political commentator David Swerdlick -- also of the Washington Post -- at one point even suggested that sexual assault victims and survivors should be expected to compromise with transgenders who want to be able to use women's bathrooms.
