In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians and race hustlers, it's not long before the magical words “diversity” and “inclusiveness” drop from their lips. Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diversity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas. We're told how it's doing so in science, in an article by Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, titled “How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences.”
A Net Neutrality-free Internet – is the Internet status quo. It’s “The Internet as we know it.”
Everything you knew about the Internet the first two-plus decades – is what you know about the Internet now.
Everything else being flung at you by the Media-Left – is just ideological monkey poo.
After rustling the feathers of foreign elitists at the G7 summit in Canada over the weekend, President Trump hopped on Air Force One and shot over to Singapore for Monday’s historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Of course, the liberal media was foaming at the mouth over Trump’s ability to push back against allies and the thought of something getting done with North Korea. The host of CNN’s Inside Politics, John King eagerly joined that bandwagon on Sunday and even said Trump was making Putin happy.
How well is the American economy doing these days? Well enough that even some liberal media which are usually Debbie Downers during Republican administrations have been singing its praises.
One New York Times writer “ran out of words” about the robust jobs numbers, another wrote about how the economy “roared” in May, while Yahoo said the economy was “on a roll.”
There are now more job openings in America than Americans looking for jobs.
The Wall Street Journal reported on June 5, that in spring 2018, the U.S. economy reached this unique milestone — the first time since the Labor Department began tracking the statistic in 2000.
Appearing on the Wednesday edition of FBN’s Making Money, MRC President Brent Bozell ripped the liberal media and CNN in particular for their advanced case of Trump Derangement Syndrome showing with their “embarrassing” and “insulting” “gossip” about First Lady Melania Trump’s health.
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was the special guest at the hot topics table, and he didn’t hold back from showing the liberal ladies just how hypocritical some of their views on President Trump were.
The “booming jobs market” got very different treatment from each of the three broadcast networks as unemployment dropped to 3.8 percent.
While ABC, CBS and NBC evening news shows all reported the “stronger than expected” numbers, NBC Nightly News spent more than four times as long complaining about a tweet from President Trump ahead of the jobs numbers and fears of a trade war that “threaten” American jobs on June 1. CBS Evening News shortchanged the economy, spending only 17 seconds on the latest employment data.
On NBC News’ Sunday Today, anchor Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd closed out their political coverage by chiding President Trump. They sided with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who claimed common sense was no longer about of the current U.S. administration. The pair also suggested that the North Korean summit in Singapore wouldn’t be anything more than just another photo-op.
In his coverage of Friday morning's stellar jobs report, the Associated Press's Chris Rugaber came up with a couple of doozies aimed at curbing readers' enthusiasm. The AP economics writer half-expected that employers would rein in their hiring over confrontational rhetoric President Donald Trump and other foreign leaders have recently engaged in over trade and tariffs. He also implausibly framed the record-low black unemployment rate of 5.9 percent merely as evidence that employers are just now finally "taking chances" with potential workers "they had previously ignored."
ABC, CBS and NBC are consistent.
Consistently willing to ignore economic news, that is.
On May 30, the government released the latest estimate of how fast the economy grew in the first quarter. The 2.2 percent growth was just shy of analysts’ estimates, according to CNBC. It was the second estimate from the Commerce Department for the quarter.
Several recent polls, plus the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, demonstrate that young people prefer socialism to free market capitalism. That, I believe, is a result of their ignorance and indoctrination during their school years, from kindergarten through college. For the most part, neither they nor many of their teachers and professors know what free market capitalism is.
