CNN's John King began his Inside Politics program on Thursday by lamenting Israel's refusal to admit leftist Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar as "unprecedented" and contrary to democratic ideals.
Citing an itinerary that proved they were out to “deny Israel’s legitimacy”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that anti-Semitic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashia Tlaib (D-MI) were barred from entering the country. Of course, the liberal media had an absolute meltdown with the flagship evening programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC rushing to the Congresswomen’s defense, while covering up their deep-seated anti-Semitic worldviews.
On Wednesday, CNN showcased yet again their unsavory penchant for gun control and confiscation without facts and knowing little about an arrest warrant gone wrong in Philadelphia that left six police officers hurt. Unfortunately, this behavior continued into Thursday with 19 minutes and 28 seconds of gun control lobbying in context of the incident during their first 12 hours of live programming.
Athlete activism is both growing and diversifying, just in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics and the U.S. election, writes The Washington Post's Jerry Brewer. It's all the more reason for this sports columnist to stray from his lane and stick to the promotion of athlete/coach activism. "Could there be many displays that paint the ugly picture of divisiveness in America?" Brewer asks.
Recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, prompted left-wing anti-gun groups to go on a $2-million advertising binge calling for gun control. Liberal media mogul Michael Bloomberg’s group Everytown for Gun Safety led the pack of gun-control advocates with nearly half that spending.
On Thursday, news broke that Israel would block Democratic Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country due to their calls for a boycott of the Jewish state. In response, MSNBC thought it was important to provide viewers with a supposed “fact check” claiming that the far-left lawmakers, who both have a history of anti-Semitism, didn’t “hate” Israel.
Check for flying pigs, 5 LGBTQ+ YouTube channels famous for bearded drag queens, progressive politics, and sex-ed are agreeing with conservatives on censorship. No less than five channels have joined together for a lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company Google. According to Buzzfeed, they have accused the Big Tech platform of “hiding their videos, removing subscribers, and denying advertising.” They claim that certain keywords in the titles of their videos such as "gay," "transgender," or "bisexual," can get them penalized.
Business dilemma: Faced with the choice, do you continue to soak up government subsidies to fund 97% of what your operation, or do you forswear the pork and concentrate on the 3% (really, just 3% you swear!) If you’re America’s largest abortion mill, you go with the latter. The Trump administration is forcing the professional baby killers at Planned Parenthood to make that choice, decreeing that healthcare providers receiving government funds via Title X may not use the money to promote or provide abortions in any way, shape or form.
Reporter Michael Wines hyperventilated again over “dangerous to democracy” gerrymandering by Republicans in Wisconsin, in Thursday’s New York Times: “Push to End Partisan Maps Is Held Up by the Map Makers.” He led off with strong language: When the Supreme Court concluded this summer that it had no authority to strike down partisan political maps, no matter how outrageous, Chief Justice John G. Roberts offered solace to those who call the maps dangerous to democracy."
During Wednesday’s edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host aired an excerpt of his lengthy interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the interview involved plenty of Trump-bashing on the part of both Cooper and Colbert.
As #TrumpRecession trends on Twitter and the liberal media panic over a “coming economic meltdown,” economist Art Laffer took a different view. The former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan told Fox News that he wasn’t currently worried. “I’m not at, right now, concerned about a recession,” Laffer told America’s Newsroom. “We have great policies in. This administration has done a great job on taxes, on monetary policy, on regulatory policy.”
Despite having long made his opposition to President Trump known, former talk show host Montel Williams was trumpeted as if were for the first time in both USA Today and on the Wednesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball. In both cases, he further bolstered the liberal media’s decades-long crusade to assert that the Republican Party has lost its way. But in addition to the usual tiresome takes MSNBC already receives, Williams went off to host Chris Matthews about how offended he was that the Trump campaign is selling Fredo Cuomo t-shirts.
On Wedesday's New Day show, CNN hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota pined for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call a special session to pass more restrictive gun laws at the same time the two ignored the news that the gun used to kill California police officer Andre Moye was illegally owned by a convicted felon.
Appearing on NBC’s Today show Thursday morning, CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer was the voice of calm, telling his colleagues to “dial back the hysteria” over the economy and reassuring viewers that “the markets are up huge.” He called out those in the press, including NBC, that were “sowing panic” about the possibility of a future recession.
MSNBC Live host Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday welcomed New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for a softball interview to remind America that she is running for president and to allow her some free air time to accuse the National Rifle Association of not caring about dead children and for the host to praise Gilibrand's ability to distance herself from the NRA.
