There was a bit of good news Thursday after President Trump announced that two of the 55 sets of Korean War remains returned by the North were identified. The remains were those of Army Master Sergeant Charles McDaniel and Army Private First Class Williams Jones. The identification of the remains would surely bring closure to their families, but NBC Nightly News didn’t think it was worth mentioning.
FX’s '80s drug crime series Snowfall recently concluded a mostly uneventful second season. Still, between the cursing and the violence as warranted on the channel now, the series managed to squeeze in one last political jab for the year. Surprise, the drug war is…racist!
Following on the heels of his Wednesday show peddling falsehoods and conspiracy theories regarding the sexual misconduct claim against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews doubled down for Thursday’s edition plus took the gross step of ranking the Kavanaugh claim as worse than the spousal abuse alleged by Rob Porter and the alleged pedophilia by Roy Moore.
Every week, Sarah Silverman seems to push the limits of how many leftist spiels she can fit in thirty minutes. Her Hulu show I Love You, America once again is chocked full of ignorant and insulting pieces aimed at conservatives. This time, the big target is Brett Kavanaugh.
Sadly, since coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have received numerous death threats. Also during that time, Kavanaugh and his family have also received horrific treatment. Despite the seriousness all around, ABC’s World News Tonight sided with Ford on Thursday by choosing to only report the threats to her and threw those against Kavanaugh in the trash.
If you're Brett Kavanaugh or a member of his nomination team, it would certainly seem inappropriate for the Democrats to launch a last-minute accusation of "attempted rape" when Kavanaugh was 17, and the accuser can't determine when or where this supposed attack occurred. But on CNN Monday, AP Washington bureau chief Julie Pace put all the weight on the accuser's side. For anyone to question her timing is "pretty inappropriate," she pronounced.
Hulu’s latest original series The First, which debuted on September 14, is an interesting, non-partisan science-fiction series set in the 2030s surrounding the trials of NASA astronauts on the first mission to Mars …most of the time. Starring raving lefty lunatic Sean Penn, you might be surprised to learn the series manages to keep politics out of the main plot. Sadly, it fails to leave its liberal agenda completely behind.
Tuesday afternoon, Politico ran the headline “Pompeo raises eyebrows with appearance at politically charged event.” Yes, you guessed it — that event is this weekend's Values Voter Summit, which Politico reports is sponsored by the “deeply conservative Family Research Council.” The 1,257 word article goes on to cite various past State Department officials who express concern about Secretary Mike Pompeo addressing a “partisan affair.”
What is this? Democracy dies in....silence? Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Wolf dedicated a segment with host Wolf Blitzer and Supreme Court analyst Joan Biskupic wondering why the current eight Supreme Court justices have remained silent and not opined on the three-decades-old sexual misconduct allegation against nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Perhaps more insane than anything Biskupic or Blitzer said was this CNN chyron that’s fit for a straightjacket: “Supreme Turmoil; How Justices Feel About Partisan Confirmation Battles.”
Cracks have formed this week in the effort to derail the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As accuser Christine Blasey Ford has wavered over whether she would actually show up in Washington to discuss sex abuse claims, outlets like MSNBC have declared the judge will have a “big old blemish” either way. But veteran ABC journalist Cokie Roberts went in the opposite direction. In a Semptember 20 column for ABCNews.com, Roberts bluntly insisted:
As the last-minute accusation against Brett Kavanaugh was breaking, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman fired off a self-righteous mini-tweetstorm that showed an unusual absence of self-unawareness, even for a GOP-hater not lacking in conceit. The three tweets form a representative triptych of Krugman’s attack-dog persona, with equal parts attacks on his colleagues in the media and dire warnings for any on his Democratic side who might feign fairness and objectivity, which Krugman sees as a cowardly façade. Those two facets were sandwiched by the tweet showing his shocking lack of self-awareness: Calling a conservative "a smarmy, smirking, entitled and mercenary guy."
Prepubescent drag star, Desmond is Amazing, has been hitting back at conservative media for having criticized his stiletto-heeled foray into the gun control debate. He reassured fans that despite all the bad mouthing, he has no fear or shame in subverting second amendment rights the same way he subverts decency, and all those who target him to know that they are “a sad bunch” of grown-ups.
Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos is now the world’s wealthiest man, and the liberal media love denouncing him for it.
They’ve also started telling him what to do with his money and power now that he’s begun giving some of it away. Bezos is estimated to be worth $162 billion, and he and his wife announced on Sept. 13, they would give $2 billion to address homelessness and preschool education.
Google has more power and control than most people realize and a top tech researcher is warning about it. In an interview at the D.C. premiere of the Creepy Line, a documentary on the dangers of Google and Facebook, Dr. Robert Epstein told the Media Research Center that Google was building personal profiles of users mainly through Gmail
During Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, the eponymous host interviewed former CIA Director and NBC News senior national security analyst John Brennan, who obviously criticized the President’s order to release “highly classified documents” related to the Trump-Russia probe. Brennan has made his contempt for President Trump perfectly clear, previously accusing the President of “treason” following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this summer.
