Latest from Joseph Vazquez

Contribution records appear to show that the newly hired heads of the National Public Radio Foundation (NPRF) and National Public Radio (NPR) are liberal partisans. So why does NPR continue to receive taxpayer funding? The new Chair of the NPR Foundation Board of Trustees John McGinn gave the maximum-allowed $2,800 to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) presidential campaign Mar. 2, 2019. 



Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe distorted an Axios report on President Donald Trump’s economy to credit former president Barack Obama. The show ran a segment defending Obama’s tweet congratulating himself for today’s booming economy. 



Poor Paul Krugman. He’s been reduced to using zombie metaphors to illustrate his disdain for certain “centrist” Democratic presidential candidates.



Liberal billionaire 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is willing to spend $2 billion to defeat President Donald Trump, and he continues to put his money where his mouth is.



No wonder liberal billionaire 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg does not want his own news outlet investigating him. They might have to do journalism and risk exposing where his money has been going all these years. The liberal New York Times chose to do some actual journalism by digging up records on Bloomberg’s enormous spending between 1977 and 2019 in a report Feb. 15. Bloomberg spent "at least" a whopping $10 billion split between charitable and political causes. Some of those causes included: abortion, climate change and gun control.



Former President Barack Obama, touting his own economic magic wand, tried to take credit for the Trump economy. Obama sent out the self-congratulatory tweet February 17. He said that, “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.”



The left went bonkers on Twitter when news broke that Big Tech billionaire Larry Ellison was hosting a pro-Trump fundraiser. Lefty outlet Vox Recode characterized the billionaire founder of Oracle Corporation's decision to support President Donald Trump as "unthinkable for a tech titan" and “a major coup for the Trump team." Recode continued: "Ellison is, after all, the country’s fifth-richest person, with a net worth of almost $70 billion.”



You know politics have gotten weird when a liberal New York Times columnist begs Democrat voters to abandon Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in favor of nominating Michael Bloomberg to lead the Democratic ticket. Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman wrote a wacky February 11, op-ed headlined “Paging Michael Bloomberg.”



Michael Bloomberg, who’s willing to spend $2 billion to beat President Donald Trump and spent more than $350 million plastering airwaves with his ads, is now paying people to plaster your Instagram accounts with terrible memes. The New York Times reported Feb. 13 that the liberal billionaire presidential candidate “has contracted some of the biggest meme-makers on the internet to post sponsored content on Instagram promoting his presidential campaign.”



The liberal director of The Washington Post-touting film The Post (2017) Steven Spielberg has not kept silent about his disdain for President Donald Trump, and neither has his wallet. Liberal filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw have contributed $3,500,000 collectively to liberal outside spending groups so far this cycle. 



When billionaire President Donald Trump is successful in the social media game, the left either accuse him of Big Tech collaboration or want to censor him. Yet when billionaire Democratic presidential candidate and owner of Bloomberg News Michael Bloomberg tries to solicit the help of Silicon Valley tech experts to boost his own chances, the outcry barely registers a cautionary blip for the left.

 


Liberal outlet The Guardian reported Feb. 10 that conservative donor Sheldon Adelson is allegedly gearing up to spend $100 million to help boost President Donald Trump and Republican candidates this fall. The outlet used its reporting (citing “three Republican fundraisers familiar with Adelson’s initial plans”) to suggest later that “The president’s courting of the Adelsons contradicts his claims in 2016, when Trump donned a populist mantle and pledged to ‘drain the swamp’ of big money and lobbying.”



The latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report found that the Trump economy is continuing to pump jobs into the market. And yet, still no evidence of the recession the liberal media have been howling about. The most recent jobs report found that the U.S. economy added 225,000 nonfarm payroll jobs for the month of January, destroying economists’ expectations of 158,000 jobs



Forget the liberal media’s scrambling to throw cold water on President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address. CNBC host of Mad Money Jim Cramer gave high praise for Trump’s economy, a major focus of the president’s speech Tuesday.



National Public Radio (NPR) continues to reinforce the years-old case for why its taxpayer-funding should be pulled by hiring a partisan to head up the entire organization.



Liberal billionaire “Godfather of the Left” George Soros thinks Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg should not be in charge of Facebook. Joining a host of others on the left, Soros fears Zuckerberg’s recent free speech stance and believes Facebook might help get President Donald Trump re-elected.



Liberal billionaire Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is whipping out ridiculous amounts of cash to beat President Donald Trump in November.



Liberal NPR is getting some great PR during impeachment regarding its recent spat with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The outlet recently boasted an increase in donations as a result of the whole kerfuffle.



Forget that embarrassing CNN segment with Don Lemon, “Republican political strategist” Rick Wilson and contributor Wajahat Ali laughing like hyenas over Wilson’s insulting “Boomer Rube” comment against Trump supporters.



Just when you think today’s politics couldn’t get any more nuts, liberal billionaire 2020 Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg decided to promote “Big Gay Ice Cream.”
