Liberals can lecture us on some things, but scaremongering ain’t one of them. These are the same people that relentlessly scare-monger the American people about “climate change.” In a recent video to promote a World Government Summit, legendary Star Wars actor Harrison Ford offered the usual litany of doom. “What does living in a four-degrees-warmer world look like? Fresh water shortages. Higher greenhouse gas emissions. Unprecedented fires. Worldwide destruction. Is this the world we want?”
NBC’s The Blacklist has already shown us its view of how little facts matter in the world today. I guess it’s no surprise then that they fill in the gaps with their own narrative. The latest example is appealing to illegal immigrant supporters by literally pandering to them in action.
On Thursday night's All In on MSNBC, host Chris Hayes went to our southern border and interviewed former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who lost a Senate race to Ted Cruz, but is still being painted as a "rising star" in the Democratic sky. In a surprise, Hayes asked a question from the right to O'Rourke -- literally. He borrowed from a tweet from freshman GOP congressman Dan Crenshaw, about the wall. Would Beto take it down? He said "Yes, absolutely."
Thursday night, A Million Little Things returned—and so did the gay agenda for children. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the episode “The Rock,” featured young Danny going on his first date—with a boy. We already knew from one of the first episodes that Danny (Chance Hurstfield) is attracted to other boys—something his family has unquestioningly encouraged.
The long legal battle between the NFL and Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid ended today with a settlement. Kaepernick is the former San Francisco quarterback who ignited a firestorm of controversy in 2016 when he began sitting and kneeling during the national anthem. Teammate Eric Reid quickly joined his protest of racial inequality and police brutality, and additional NFL players knelt, too. Both men filed collusion grievances against the NFL, resulting in many months of depositions. Media sentiment has overwhelming favored the social justice warriors and accused the NFL of blackballing them.
Minutes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the U.S. southern border on Friday, MSNBC congressional correspondent Garrett Haake touted Democrats scrambling to release “statements and tweets about how ridiculous they found that entire press conference.” Later in afternoon, the reporter even eagerly predicted that liberal lawmakers would be able exploit the deaths of military service members to denounce the executive action.
For the past few decades, Elizabeth Warren has claimed that she is an “Indian American” and has used this falsehood to take advantage of programs supporting minorities, a tactic that eventually resulted in the Massachusetts Democrat being elected to the U.S. Senate. However, Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican from the same chamber, learned recently that he had a distant relative who was a Native American, which gives him at least twice as much of that ancestry as the liberal candidate for the 2020 presidential election.
Hollywood will jump at any opportunity to throw a middle finger at conservative policies, especially at immigration reform. Doubling down on it’s message of “Fuck The Wall,” the music industry threw three Grammy awards at a music album featuring the vocal stylings of 53 undocumented immigrants. Of course Billboard Music reported on it with pride.
All three morning shows on Friday reacted with extreme alarm to the news that Donald Trump would declare a state of emergency on the southern border in order to fund a wall. CBS This Morning journalists sounded down right apocalyptic, warning that the republic was in danger. Co-host Bianna Golodryga opened the show this way: “We begin with President Trump who is poised to take action today that could test our 230-year-old system of checks and balances in government.”
Henry Rogers of The Daily Caller recently tried to ask New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, a Democrat, about the Green New Deal. Menendez responded by saying he wouldn’t answer questions from The Daily Caller and told Rogers “you’re trash” before threatening to “race to the Capitol Police” if Rogers refused to stop “harassing him.” On The Ingraham Angle Thursday, guest host Tammy Bruce highlighted the media silence on this matter and contrasted it with their outrage when President Trump declares the media “the enemy of the people.”
CNN claimed after the president's press conference on Friday that their "hearts go out" to "Angel moms," who lost children due to illegal immigrants. But they couldn't stick to empathy. In fact, the words "Angel mom" only emerged on CNN on ten occasions so far in the Trump era. All ten were uttered by the president, his press secretary, or pro-Trump CNN analysts.
The New York Times’ reaction to the anti-Semitic controversies engulfing two freshmen Democrats shows that “whataboutism” -- trying to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy -- is no longer “the last refuge of scoundrels” but is back in favor. Mark Landler used Democratic-friendly rhetoric to change the subject and tar Trump as the one with the anti-Semitism problem, in “Trump, No Stranger to Jewish Stereotypes, Rejects Ilhan Omar’s Apology.” Sheryl Gay Stolberg’s story, “In Surprise Vote, House Republicans Lift Anti-Semitism to Political Issue,” also had a distinct “Republicans pounce” vibe, casting Omar and Rashida Tlaib as poor, passive victims of cynical Republicans:
The man who served as an Obama administration Regulation Czar, Cass Sunstein, is giving more evidence that the left is moving to regulate social media. Sunstein, who has worked as a Facebook consultant, suggested that Facebook and Twitter should be regulated. He proposed this solution to stop “Russian” interference, to protect privacy, and to prevent a monopoly. He then raised the point that, “social media platforms can jeopardize both democratic and economic goals.”
In another raucous press conference self-aggrandizing liberal journalist Jim Acosta battled with Donald Trump over the President’s plan to declare a national emergency in order to build a border wall. After Trump told Acosta he was “fake news” and that CNN “has an agenda,” an Angel Mom walked up to the journalist in the Rose Garden and told him about her murdered child.
After news broke Thursday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee decided that the first primary debate of the 2020 presidential race would be held in June and hosted by NBC News, giddy MSNBC hosts went on air to express their excitement for the event. Given the softball treatment the network has routinely given Democratic candidates, DNC Chair Tom Perez even appeared on the liberal cable channel to express his enthusiasm.
