In a Saturday tweet from Japan, President Trump took a rhetorical swing at former Vice President Joe Biden when he suggested North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un called his 2020 rival “a low IQ individual”. The anti-Trump alarmists over at ABC did the only reasonable thing, to them, and decided that the President had taken the “side” of a “murderous dictator” over one of their presidential candidates.
Univision’s Sunday political affairs show, Al Punto, featured both pro-life activist Adryana Aldeen and pro-abortion activist Ana María Archila debating new pro-life legislation in various states. Check out the full post to see Aldeen's argument, in which she makes a compelling case about both the value of human life and the importance of new, aggressive legislative efforts on the pro-life front.
So over there at Mediaite is this curious story. The headline: “Pete Buttigieg Asked if Trump is a Racist: ‘If You Do Racist Things, And Say Racist Things…’” The South Bend, Indiana Mayor and presidential candidate had a sit down with The Washington Post. And this question was asked of the mayor: “Is President Trump racist?”
Do Democratic candidates for president really have a complaint about the liberal media? Except for whether they get enough gushy publicity? On Friday, David Rutz at the Washington Free Beacon flagged MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace telling failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke that he receives "very snarky national media coverage." He does? "Play media critic.
What can we do better?"
Even CNBC's more liberal anchor wasn't thrilled with newly announced plans from Democratic candidates to tax Wall Street transactions. Reporter Ylan Mui told Squawk Box viewers on May 23 about plans from liberal candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) to tax Wall Street to pay for expensive things like "free" college.
During primaries like the one currently underway for the 2020 presidential campaign, Democrats are fond of claiming that, unlike “rich Republicans,” they “stand up for the little guy.” That concept became much more difficult to promote on Thursday after a report showed how lucrative of a legal career Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has had, even though N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly rushed to her defense and even took aim at a --- wait for it --- female Washington Post reporter's salary.
The liberals at PolitiFact are so touchy about President Trump mocking Democrats that they slap a "Mostly False" on things that just make them angry. Take this statement: "Don't forget Biden deserted you. He's not from Pennsylvania. I guess he was born here, but he left you, folks." PolitiFact admits Biden hasn't lived in Scranton since 1953...that's 66 years ago. But it's "false" because you can't "desert" a state when your family moves to another state when you're in grade school. Biden could have returned to Pennsylvania to live, but never did.
Presidential contenders are in a battle to out give one another. Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a whopping $50,000 per student college loan forgiveness. Senator Bernie Sanders proposes free health care for all Americans plus illegal aliens. Most Democratic presidential candidates promise free stuff that includes free college, universal income, "Medicare for All" and debt forgiveness.
Did you hear about the new study out of Berlin which found that 92 percent of left-wing activists still live with their parents? This will come as no surprise to nearly every conservative learning about it. What the study didn't look at though was what percent of left-wing activists never leave adolescence. Chances are, that answer would have been on the high end. Latest example from liberal media -- Bill Press yesterday on his radio show/podcast discussing the latest "milkshaking" incident in Great Britain, this one targeting Nigel Farage, a leader of the Brexit movement.
The same network anchors and reporters that refused to cover New York’s radical late term abortion law back in January have (in just the last 15 days) flooded their evening and morning shows with over two-hours of hostile coverage of pro-life laws in Alabama, Georgia and Missouri.
Liberal billionaire George Soros gives millions each year to fund a left-wing media empire that promotes far-left opinions. It’s only natural that some of those Soros-funded or Soros-linked media are pushing the eco-socialist Green New Deal and hoping to influence the upcoming presidential race. The Green New Deal resolution was introduced by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA). Ocasio-Cortez described it as a “comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice,” aiming to force a New Deal-like federal mobilization designed to “achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition.”
CNN’s hysterical ratings trouble continued on Sunday evening when a Fox News Channel town hall featuring presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg pulled twice the numbers of a similar event held on March 10 with the Democrat mayor of South Bend, Ind., on the channel that flaunts itself as the “Most Trusted Name in News.” As if that wasn’t bad enough, Fox News also had an average of 1.1 million viewers during the 7 p.m. hour while CNN Newsroom and Kasie DC on MSNBC and hosted by Kasie Hunt -- combined -- fell short of that total.
