Fans should say, “No Thank U, Next” to pop singer Ariana Grande and stop buying her tickets now that we know the proceeds go directly to America’s biggest abortion business. This week it was announced that about $250,000 of the proceeds from Grande’s June 8 concert in Atlanta will go to Planned Parenthood, presumably in response to the state’s new pro-life heartbeat bill.
On CNN's New Day, New York Times reporter and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman said "Joe Biden's core strength is his decency," and claimed the Trump campaign is "having a very hard time figuring out how to attack that." We'll leave on the table whether the Avenatti-Stormy Network has the credentials to talk about anyone's "decency." But Haberman's phrasing is strange. Trump doesn't have trouble "figuring out" how to attack anyone. Maybe liberal reporters think the punches won't land, but he's going to punch.
Yesterday, the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine released a study on the physical health effects of abortion and the left-wing media jumped on it. While most media outlets simply reported what the publication stated, Salon decided to take the extra step of inserting their own lefty conclusions.
When one can characterize the protective “heartbeat” laws being passed to reinstate the sanctity of life throughout the country as “restrictive” and “terrifying," it is clear society has a grave morality issue. The widespread panic among liberals and their talking heads in the media over the movement to validate the rights of unborn children in the womb is palpable. Rachel Maddow and host Seth Meyers proved Tuesday night on The Late Show to be participants in the hysteria.
In Monday’s New York Times, reporter Eleanor Stanford interviewed the showrunner for The Handmaid’s Tale, “Seeking to Be More Than TV Medicine -- Bruce Miller wanted Season 3 of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ to be entertaining above all else.” Stanford opens with a feverish description of life in present-day America. The opening paragraphs are a particular hoot: "What do you do when reality starts looking uncomfortably like your dystopian fiction?" A similar social liberal overreaction could be found with reporter Ernesto Londono fretting over “State Dept. Alters Stance On Showing Pride Flags.” The text box: “Quietly abandoning gay rights as a foreign policy imperative.”
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough says "I know" the Roberts Supreme Court won't overturn Roe v. Wade, in light of a recent poll showing only 13% of Americans favor overturning it. Refusing to apply the Constitution, bowing instead to the public sentiment of the day, would represent an appalling abdication of the Court's duty.
The dinosaur publication Time magazine, which you may have forgotten still existed (or you only see at the dentist now), still pumps out liberal spin and reporting from a left-leaning perspective. The latest example of that trend is an article published in the Sunday, June 9 edition that focused on a small hotel in Michigan offering pregnant women free stays and no-cost transportation from states that have “severe restrictions” on abortion.
Hollywood celebrities aren’t the only people upset about recent state efforts to limit abortion. A number of business executives are too. CNN Business writer Jackie Wattles promoted a letter signed by more than 180 business leaders that claimed restricting abortion was “bad for business.” It appeared as a full-page ad in The New York Times. She cited a “growing willingness” by businesses to take a stand on the biggest political issues of the day, but linked only to stories of CEOs embracing left-wing causes or attitudes.
On June 6, liberal activist Christopher Keelty announced to the world how he benefited from his child’s death by abortion. Ironically, he did this on the online publication Fatherly, which describes itself as “the leading digital media brand for dads.” Keelty wrote an essay titled What My Partner’s Abortion Taught Me: Men Benefit From Choice, Too after he and his partner Liz decided they were not “ready” to have kids.
The New York state legislature just passed a bill that would make their state the first in the nation to outlaw the declawing of cats. In January, the same legislature moved to make abortion legal up until birth. Townhall columnist Michael Brown summarized: "New York: Dismember The Late-Term Babies But Do Not Declaw The Cats." But in its reporting, The New York Times failed to see any irony in that contrast.
Netflix boasts far more than just buzz-worthy content. The streaming giant enjoys enormous public goodwill. Offer a crush of high quality programming along with classic fare for a modest fee – which just jumped to $12.99/month – and patrons will sing your praises. Better yet, Netflix is easily consumed on smart phones, tablets, streaming devices and smart TVs. Is it any wonder people connect with the brand?
Hollywood has shown its true colors in the past few days, and is threatening to pull all film and television production out of the state of Georgia due to the anti-abortion heartbeat bill that was passed. Netflix was the first major corporation to threaten to pull out of the state, and now others are talking about joining in that effort, including The Walt Disney Company and NBCUniversal. Both companies operate theme parks and resorts, and their respective operations in Orlando, Florida are among the most visited every summer. It could be very bad for, not only the movie studio, but the theme parks as well with new themed areas based on the Star Wars franchise opening at Disneyland and Disney World this summer.
