Reading more like a political action committee's website, The Washington Post sports section devoted a story this week to a progressive sports announcer's upcoming book aiming to discourage the 2020 re-election of Senate President Mitch McConnell (Rep-Kentucky). Ben Strauss wrote the story about a book-length rebuke of McConnell by Matt Jones, a "southern progressive populist," sports radio host in Kentucky and ongoing critic of the long-time senator. The book is co-authored by Chris Tomlin, not to be mistaken for the popular Christian singer Chris Tomlin.
Sorry but running for the U.S. Senate is just not good enough for me. On Thursday, presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attempted to reboot his failing campaign with a major speech in which he rabidly attacked President Donald Trump but may have ended up shooting himself in the boot. That is the conclusion of liberal Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake who proclaimed himself disgusted by the massive hubris displayed by O'Rourke's speech in El Paso when he stated that running for the U.S. Senate is not important enough for him.
Appearing on the Monday edition of the Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co., Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell tore into Twitter for being “like two-year-olds” with their attempt to lock Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign account for sharing video of angry, far-left protesters last week outside his home threatening to inflict fatal harm on the Kentucky Republican.
Another day, another Joe Biden gaffe, another story framed as "Republicans Pounce" or "Republicans Seize." That's how CNN Inside Politics guest host Nia-Malika Henderson framed the story of the former Vice President's Thursday gaffe where he said that, "Poor kids are just as bright as just as talented as white kids" before immediately correcting himself, "wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids."
The first question on everyone’s lips was: Why? Why did that El Paso monster murder 20 and injure another 26? What could explain this evil? It didn’t take long to discover that the shooter had a four-page “manifesto” proclaiming “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” And just like that it was Trump’s fault. The Democrats and their leftist friends in the press are blaming Trump personally. They have declared as fact that his rhetoric about immigrants had directly to violence… and death.
On August 1, PolitiFact took meticulous exception to a new Trump ad that shows NBC debate moderator Savannah Guthrie asking ten Democrat presidential candidates in June "Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants." The announcer said "These Democrats support giving illegal immigrants free health care at our expense." PolitiFact proclaimed this was "MOSTLY FALSE," because they didn't say "free health care" by raising their hand!
Somebody forgot to tell Mika Brzezinski that Democrats aren't supposed to openly discuss their plans to exploit the mass shootings for political purposes. Today's Morning Joe opened with a clip of Beto speaking about the El Paso shooting. Check out the full post to see what they said.
The New York Times is still trying to make concern over “climate change” happen within the GOP, this time hyping the threat climate denial poses to the party’s prospects. Lisa Friedman, New York Times “climate change” reporter and former editor of ClimateWire, made the front page Saturday with “Climate, Taboo In G.O.P., Eats At Party Youth.” Friedman wrote: "While Donald Trump has led the Republican Party far down the road of denying the scientific consensus of human-caused climate change..."
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has lots of big ideas to redesign the United States. She dreams of Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, forgiving student loans, waging war on corporate America and more. On the debate stage in Detroit, Warren pushed back when others raised doubts about her ambitious agenda: "I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for."
While he’s received some praise during his congressional career, the liberal media’s use of sudden respect boiled with Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) announcing that he won’t seek reelection. And, as with many cases of when GOPers either retire or pass away, the liberal media used the occasion to lament how their hated opposition just isn’t as respectable as it used to be. Throughout the day on Friday, CNN put that truism on display.
The morning after the second Democratic debate the cast of CNN New Day was joined by three former Democratic spokespeople and consultants to discuss the previous night’s proceedings and they were not happy with their candidates. Like their MSNBC counterparts, they blasted the candidates for going after former President Obama than current President Trump.
It’s been clear for a long time that CNN is part of the anti-Trump resistance. From morning to night, the various journalists, hosts and panelists on the network make that obvious. Still, it’s nice when someone comes out and admits it. And that was precisely the gift that Karen Finney bestowed this morning on CNN.
