Jane Fonda has a new biopic being released on Netflix this week called Jane Fonda in Five Acts, so of course sat down for a tell-all with USA Today to talk about her life in the limelight, her struggles with insecurity, and that infamous anti-war photo prompting millions to dub her “Hanoi Jane” -- something she she says she deeply regrets.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal host Bill Maher and actor Jim Carrey celebrated recent Democratic candidates running on far-left platforms and identifying themselves as "socialists," leading Carrey to proclaim: "We have to say yes to socialism -- to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing."
Just when you thought MSNBC host Chuck Todd could get any more ridiculous, he sets a new gold standard for himself. If you were to believe Todd’s ramblings during Tuesday’s MTP Daily, you would think President Trump “just wants to rationalize violence” after he warned a group of evangelical leaders about Antifa’s terrorist-like actions. But in reality, it was Todd who was the one rationalizing violence.
On Sunday, Washington, D.C. was all but shut down as roughly 25 white supremacists emerged from whatever crevasses they hide in, and marched to Lafayette Park on the anniversary of last year’s deadly rally in Charlottesville. They were dwarfed by hundreds of counter-protesters, violent agitators, and members of the press. CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon had much to say on the matter.
On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters.
Poverty is no mystery, and it's easily avoidable. The poverty line that the Census Bureau used in 2016 for a single person was an income of $12,486 that year. For a two-person household, it was $16,072, and for a four-person household, it was $24,755. To beat those poverty thresholds is fairly simple. Here's the road map: Complete high school; get a job, any kind of a job; get married before having children; and be a law-abiding citizen.
Offering quite the overreaction to the controversial White House decision to ban CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews loosely tied President Trump to communist regimes of yesteryear when “people were only allowed to hear news from the government, that you got arrested or worse if you were caught even listening to news from anywhere else.”
After AC360 host Anderson Cooper deemed Monday's Trump-Putin press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president,” the craziness continued with Cooper stating that “today is just an incredibly depressing moment in our time in our history as an American” while other panelists opined that it’s been a “surreal” day known as “the surrender summit.”
New York Times reporter Sarah Lyall offered a disturbing look at the World Cup host city of Volgograd, Russia, where some actually have found World War II-related memories of one of the world’s cruelest dictators, Joseph Stalin. But the most important part of a story on Stalin is nearly absent: Why he is such a controversial figure in the first place. Whitewashing the crimes of Soviet Communism is a shameful habit at the Times, whose notorious "Red Century" series did the same to mark the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.
Yet another long New York Times article on the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela spared no space for the “S-word,” -- socialism -- that is the root cause of the country’s woes. William Neuman and Clifford Krauss devoted 1,700 words on the front of Friday’s edition to one facet of the country’s woes: "Job at Oil Giant Is No Longer Path to the Venezuelan Dream.” The absence of the actual cause of Venezuela’s human tragedy – authoritarian socialism – is par for the course for the paper, as demonstrated on Newsbusters again and again.
Venezuela's descent under Bolivarian socialist President and de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has achieved yet another grim milestone. This time it's the return of polio, on top of other previously eradicated diseases including diphtheria, tuberculosis, measles, and malaria. The return of polio has caught the attention of some in the international press in the past few days, but only one of over a dozen related English stories found in early Monday afternoon Eastern Time Google News searches identified the nation or its leader as socialist. Also as of Monday afternoon, there was no coverage at major U.S. news outlets.
WASHINGTON — I ce did a weekly column for the Washington Post. It appeared on Mondays and was picked up in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, possibly Chicago and I believe Bull Snort, Georgia. It ran in a lot of newspapers, but that was many years ago. Things were different in America. Liberals were different then. For one thing, liberals were liberal. Now, of course, they are progressives, and feminists, and, forget not, some are socialists. Who knows — maybe some are Marxist-Leninist socialists.
