Dahlia Lithwick and Mark Joseph Stern hyped in a Wednesday item for Slate that "hard right" Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's "fingerprints are all over" the Trump administration, due to the fact that many of his former clerks now hold "high places" there. Litchwick and Sterm played up that Thomas's "once-fringy ideas are suddenly flourishing," and touted that he is "close buddies with Rush Limbaugh...[and] fringe radio dogmatist Mark Levin."
President Donald Trump has only been in office six months, and MSNBC host Brian Williams is already asking if he is a "lame-duck President." On Wednesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, during a discussion about the latest news on President Trump with presidential historians Michael Beschloss and Jon Meacham, Williams turned to Meacham and posed: "Jon, if you put it all together, legislative failures, being forced to sign the Russia sanctions veto-proof vote in Congress, and where his polling is, is this a lame-duck President?"
Colin Kaepernick's desperate apologists have made just about every conceivable accusation about why their man isn't employed in the NFL. Shaun King of the New York Daily News, who forgets that two months ago he announced his own personal boycott of the NFL because Kaepernick is unsigned, now says it's "unChristian" that the "cultural superhero in the black community" is still a free agent. Who's preaching this kind of "faith"? President Donald J. Trump and his supporters, of course!
With Don Lemon taking some vacation, CNN Tonight has featured New Day co-host Chris Cuomo, so Wednesday’s show went as well as you’d expect with liberal propaganda, a full defense of Jim Acosta after being thrashed by Stephen Miller, and unchallenged fake news by April Ryan.
Clarence Thomas is known for speaking not softly, but rarely, when the Supreme Court holds oral arguments. Nonetheless, he carries a big stick in terms of influence on both the courts and the presidency, warn Dahlia Lithwick and Mark Joseph Stern. Thomas, who in Lithwick and Stern’s words had “spent his career teetering off the right edge of the federal bench,” now “finds himself at the center of the table.” As Lithwick and Stern tell it, the major difference between the president and the justice is that Trump is “far too witless to grasp, let alone implement, [Thomas’s] complex theories of law.”
Jason Horowitz, the New York Times’ most showily left-wing political reporter, made common cause with a piece making the rounds of Catholic intellectual circles singling out “ultraconservative” Trump-supporting conservatives as dangerous, in “From the Vatican, a Warning Shot for Hard-Line Catholics in the U.S.”
The Democratic Party can always count on CNN New Day co-host Chris Cuomo to push their talking points for them. On Wednesday, Cuomo spewed nonsense about President Trump's support for reforming Dodd-Frank, the "Consumer Protection Agency," and the EPA's Waters of the United States rule.
Fusion has gone through many iterations and mission shifts over the course of its brief existence as an English-language Univision affiliate. Throughout, however, the network has remained consistent in one aspect: its advocacy for far-left domestic political causes. with its latest paean to Planned Parenthood being but the most recent example.
America is great, according to one young actress, because of Planned Parenthood. Never mind that millions of Americans are missing today because of the abortion giant. On Tuesday, actress Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Hugo) unabashedly advertised her support for Planned Parenthood by displaying a bright pink baseball cap.
On MSNBC Wednesday night, the Hardball Roundtable circled the wagons to defend CNN’s Jim Acosta after he got his clock cleaned by Stephen Miller on immigration. New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor led the way, treating the Statue of Liberty poem like a legally-binding document we have to abide by and blaming Ronald Reagan for supposedly pro-white pandering.
Politico accused Stephen Miller in a new article of being a Soviet anti-Semite following his exchange with Jim Acosta on Wednesday. Entitled “The Ugly History of Stephen Miller’s ‘Cosmopolitan’ Epithet,” Jeff Greenfield goes on to explain how ‘cosmopolitan’ was originally a term used by Josef Stalin that served as an excuse “to purge the culture of dissident voices.” This accusation is particularly ironic given the fact that Stephen Miller is, in fact, Jewish.
After bashing Trump adviser Stephen Miller as a racist for defending immigration reform, then bashing the state of Missouri for their recently passed “racist” law that protects businesses from unfounded lawsuits, the View crew had still more ill-informed hot takes to give on Thursday’s show. Equally as loony liberal activist Michael Moore was today’s guest, and he fit right in with most of the panel’s hatred for the right and for Trump.
As countless celebrities champion an organization that destroys the unborn, one actress is standing out as pro-life – by protecting the newborn. Earlier this week, Glamour published an interview with actress Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) by Alex Morris, a contributing editor at New York magazine and Rolling Stone.
After Wednesday’s network evening newscasts rushed to slam President Trump’s immigration reform proposal, on Thursday, the morning shows of NBC, ABC, and CBS continued the work of trashing the “hardline” policy and framing it as a “major new controversy” for the administration designed to only appeal to the President’s “hardcore supporters.”
Republicans are just plain evil. If you listen to Dan Savage, “they want sex to be dangerous and consequential so as to scare people out of having it.”
LGBTQ activist Dan Savage recently sat down with Vox’s Alexander Bisley to talk about sex education during the Trump era. The conversation was relevant, according to Bisley, because “the administration appears to be heading toward the 1950’s social conservatism preferred by Vice President Pence.” The horror.
