Not only has the Mueller Investigation consumed the news media the last two years, its reach has also extended into entertainment television. Up until Friday, Hollywood celebrities were professing their love for Robert Mueller, so sure were they that the special prosecutor would find the evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians that would finally get him impeached.



Dr. Leana Wen got a hero’s welcome on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on March 21. Noah gushed that Wen, who has now been the president of Planned Parenthood for 4 months, has “one of the most impressive resumes of any human being I have ever read” and has “been a badass from day one.”



Season 3 of CBS All-Access’ surreal drama The Good Fight returned last Thursday and critics can’t stop raving about the Trump-bashing show. A spin-off of the Emmy-winning The Good Wife, which ran on CBS from 2009-2016, The Good Fight ostensibly follows Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) work at a historically black Chicago law firm, but mostly documents her three year freak out over the election of President Trump.



Peter Beinart’s March 15 article in The Atlantic, titled “Secular Democrats Are the New Normal,” seems both pleased that Democrats aren't mentioning God anymore and worried that this could hurt their electoral chances against President Donald Trump.



There's a big shakeup going down at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) this week. In a surprise announcement on Thursday, the hateful left-wing "hate watch" group disclosed the sudden firing of co-founder Morris Dees. Although the SPLC declined to specify why, reports of racial bias and a possible #MeToo situation quickly surfaced.



Starz’s new sci-fi Millennial comedy Now Apocalypse premiered on Sunday and it had me thinking the title of the first episode “This Is the Beginning of the End” is too true. In just 30 minutes, pretty much every kind of sex and sexuality is shown: solo and mutual masturbation, heterosexual and homosexual sex, and even a form of bestiality.



Not content to just drag Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name through the mud in that ridiculous witch hunt during his confirmation hearing in the fall, liberals are still determined to sully his name at every possible opportunity. The latest example is comparing the Supreme Court Justice to R. Kelly, a Grammy Award winning singer who was arrested for sexually abusing multiple underage girls and women.



Poor Will Smith can’t catch a break! First the African-American star was roundly mocked on the Internet for being the color blue in the new live-action Aladdin movie, now social justice warriors are complaining about his skin color in a different way.



Rolling Stone gave liberal women in Congress the rock star treatment in their March issue, with glowing interviews and glamorous photo shoots. The “Women Shaping the Future” are Speaker Nancy Pelosi and "the new voices of the House" Reps. Jahana Hayes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar.



The New York Times ran an op-ed on February 26 with the provocative title “I Didn’t Kill My Baby.” However, the reader quickly learns that, although the contention in the title is correct, there’s no reason for it to be asserted other than to muddy the waters between abortion and an infant dying of natural causes, which are two completely different things morally, ethically, and legally.



The good thing about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is that it is very straightforward, there’s little wiggle room for the media’s typical machinations and euphemisms when it comes to abortion. The media has to be honest about what the bill is and what it does, which is why they like to take the focus off it and make the story about President Trump and Republicans.



Director Spike Lee won his first Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for "BlacKkKlansman" and he took the occasion to be the first one to really get political at the 91st Academy Awards on ABC.



There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”



Interview magazine published a pro-abortion puff piece on Feb. 20 in which Chelsea Clinton gave a softball interview to Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen in what was essentially a love letter to abortion giant.



It seems like abortion activists are getting more brazen in pushing their agenda to normalize and celebrate abortion every day. American singer Amanda Palmer released the single "Voicemail for Jill" on Tuesday, announcing matter-of-factly on Twitter, “this is my new song... it's about abortion.” along with a link to the audio.



In what world are vaccines comparable to abortions? Vaccines save lives, prevent horrible diseases and are recommended for everyone, while abortions take lives, cause horrible pain and are supposed to not be wanted by anyone. Only to an extreme, pro-abortion movement steeped in the racist eugenics history of Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger are abortions like vaccines, inoculating society from the scourge of the spread of more poor and minority babies being born.



Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a day about love, but pro-abortion activists have managed twisted it into a celebration of the ugly, hateful act of abortion.



Trouble in liberal paradise? Apparently BuzzFeed News is concerned that America’s number one abortion business isn’t focusing enough on abortion and politics in the wake of former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards’ departure last year. Somehow, BuzzFeed News seems to be trying to spin it that new Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen is not radically pro-abortion enough.



President Trump spoke about important topics to our country like abortion, adoption and religious liberty at the National Prayer Breakfast, but his critics instead focused on a word slipup to bash and mock him on Thursday.



I guess “Ivanka Barefoot and Pregnant in the Kitchen” was too on the nose. A live “art” installation titled “Ivanka Vacuuming” has come to DC and instead of running it out of town as sexist and demeaning, as they would if it were almost any other woman, liberals are delighted.
