Se avecina el final de 2017, y con ello Univisión aprovechó una última oportunidad para colocar el foco sobre una de las querendonas nuevas de la cadena: Carmen Yulín Cruz, la alcaldesa separatista radical de San Juan, Puerto Rico.



On Wednesday, The New York Times closed out a shameful year-long campaign to whitewash and rehabilitate the legacy of communism by publishing yet another op-ed praising the Soviet Union. In spite of having spent ten years travelling throughout Russia talking to people about their family histories and memories of the Soviet period, writers Olga Shevchenko and Oksana Sarkisova were apparently unable to find any relatives of the more than 20 million people who were murdered during the course of political purges, forced collectivization, or starvation genocide. Instead, they mostly focused on those with pleasant memories of living under the totalitarian regime’s nightmarish police state.



Before the question, how about a few statistics? The 20th century was mankind's most brutal century. Roughly 16 million people lost their lives during World War I; about 60 million died during World War II. Wars during the 20th century cost an estimated 71 million to 116 million lives. The number of war dead pales in comparison with the number of people who lost their lives at the hands of their own governments.



With the passage of the Republicans’ $1.5 trillion tax cut bill looming, most of Wednesday’s Morning Joe was devoted to portraying the legislation as not just bad policy (which would be par for the course on MSNBC), but a threat to America’s survival, prosperity, and democracy. “Conservative” co-host Joe Scarborough put on his Marxist cap to make the case that “the greatest threat to American-styled capitalism [is] income disparity.”



Any list of the year's most ignored news stories has to include Venezuela's frightening deterioration. This once reasonably prosperous South American nation is now in the grips of a brutal socialist de facto dictatorship which is moving inexorably to consolidate its control, accompanied by an utterly wrecked economy. Families cannot feed their children, and many are dying. The New York Times broke through the near-blackout on Sunday, but failed to mention the root cause of the nation's humanitarian catastrophe — socialism — until the third-last of over 100 paragraphs.



On Monday’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough and his band of liberal misfits devoted a full segment of the show’s second hour to accusing Fox News journalists of trying to “inspire hatred that will lead to the killing of Americans.” How is Fox supposedly doing this? Well, in the minds of Scarborough and his fellow MSNBC pundits, Fox News hosts and guests who have compared Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Trump administration to an attempted “coup” and the FBI to the KGB are trying to inspire a Timothy-McVeigh-style attack on the Bureau through their heated rhetoric. Joe and company failed to explain how their own repeated comparisons of Trump to Soviet and communist mass-murderers like Joseph Stalin would be substantively different from what Fox’s commentators have said recently.



Here's some radical chic with a violent twist: After apologizing for allegedly normalizing a Nazi sympathizer last week, the New York Times celebrated violent hard-left Antifa (the “anti-fascists” who actually delight in identify-hiding uniforms, violence, and other fascist tactics) on the front of the Styles section Thursday. Don’t expect a similar backlash from the paper’s leftist readership.



USA’s Damnation premiered last week with the completely unoriginal message of how communism is a good idea (spoiler alert: it isn’t). This time around, we only continue the downward spiral of slamming capitalism for a wide audience. As an added bonus, we gain another reminder of how rich people are terrible.



It’s amazing how far we’ve fallen as a nation in less than 40 years when The Village People had a hit singing about being macho to now where the alt-left thinks it’s awful. And although the song is a bit sarcastic, it was embraced as a fun pop song to the point where even Donald Duck performed it.



On Friday’s Morning Joe, the liberal panel once again took issue with some of the President’s Twitter comments and portrayed them as evidence that Trump is a dangerous and “authoritarian dictator.” However, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson really upped the ante today by ridiculously claiming that Trump “wants to run [America]” like Xi Jinping runs Communist China and host Joe Scarborough suggested that Trump wants to play “judge,” “jury,” and “executioner” in a manner similar to President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte, who has admitted to extrajudicially killing criminal suspects.



Our nation's leftist progressives have long sought to undermine the American values expressed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Though typical Democrats and Republicans do not have this leftist hate for our nation, they have been willing accomplices in undermining the most basic value the Founding Fathers sought to promote -- limited government.



In a truly bizarre segment on Thursday’s Morning Joe, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski seemed completely undisturbed by being told that a government official from the totalitarian dictatorship of North Korea enjoys watching the MSNBC show’s repeated whitewashes of Kim Jong-un’s threats to kill millions of Americans with nukes. Joe actually suggested that “now is a perfect time [for Kim] to move forward” on developing nuclear weapons because Trump is perceived by the world as a “reckless,” “dangerous,” and “destabilizing” “pariah.”
