On Thursday's The Beat, MSNBC host Ari Melber and liberal actor George Takei fretted over the Trump administration planning to keep some illegal immigrant children in former internment camps from the World War II era even as Melber admitted that the Barack Obama administration had done the same thing. The two also at times misleadingly gave the impression that there is still a zero tolerance policy that leads to the separation of parents and children even though a court halted the practice last year.
CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 353-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. And, folks, it’s everything you thought it would be and then some.

A Washington Post story on Thursday completely contradicts widespread mainstream media cynicism about the deal reached with Mexico to limit migration from its southern border under threat of tariffs.
The press rose as one in outrage Wednesday upon learning that Fort Sill, an Army base in Oklahoma, which is being used as a temporary shelter for migrant children, had been used as a Japanese internment camp during World War II. One fact buried and downplayed: Fort Sill was also used to hold migrant children as recently in 2014, under the administration of one Barack Obama. But at the time, it seems that zero media outlets who covered the controversy made the connection between World War II internment and the Obama administration’s housing of migrant children.
If we add all who qualify as having a Hispanic or a Latino origin in the United States, the only country possessing a larger Spanish-speaking population is Mexico. With more than 120 million inhabitants, Mexico roughly doubles the 60-million individuals for whom Spanish is the native tongue who reside in the United States. The United States is a magnet for people around the world. Latinos, like others, hear the true stories of the American economic system from friends and relatives who emigrated here. It is not easy to succeed, but during periods of more rapid expansion, like the one we have been living in these first years of the Trump administration, most find opportunities to progress.
Liberal journalists are determined not to give Donald Trump a win on anything. And that includes his win in achieving a deal with Mexico to curb illegal immigration. This proved too stressful for the media to handle, thus they resorted to their favorite hobby of criticizing the President in any form possible.
There is nothing quite like a lefty late-night host lecturing the country on issues they are far removed from and completely ignorant about. This did not deter Trevor Noah from criticizing President Trump for his handling of the immigration issue on Monday night’s The Daily Show.
Univision has fired what amounts to its opening salvo in the 2020 U.S. presidential election: a deviously pro-Democrat promotion of the stances the candidates take on the nation’s immigration policy mess. The network that made a supreme effort to elect Hillary in 2016 is now touting the results of a immigration policy questionnaire it sent to the top 23 Democrat candidates for President (the total number of Democrats who have filed their candidacies with the Federal Election Commission is currently more than 160).
ABC’s Designated Survivor almost faced cancellation last year until Netflix surprisingly saved the series. Considering the show already featured awful jabs at Republicans and America’s “gun problem” when it was on network television, pushing it to a streaming site with less restrictions meant nothing but trouble. Sure enough, Designated Survivor is not only worse than before but one of the most social justice-pandering, politically-slanted, overly-vulgar shows of the summer.
Last Friday, President Trump announced via Twitter that his administration reached an agreement with Mexico in an attempt to stem the tide of illegal immigration through the southern border. This rescinded the administration’s threat of tariffs if the Mexicans refused to take more concrete action to prevent influxes of migrants from illegally entering the U.S. through their country. All told, it was a win for the President that quelled bipartisan fears about his use of tariffs.
After putting pressure on Mexico with threats of escalating tariffs, President Trump’s hardball negotiation tactics finally got them to cave and take action to stem the flow of migrants looking to break into the U.S. It was a victory for the President the liberal media was forced to concede, much to their chagrin. But during Sunday Today, NBC News tried to downplay the win my suggesting Trump only achieved results that were already coming.
Despite decrying President Trump’s threats to impose escalating tariffs on goods from Mexico, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News were forced Thursday to admit the tactic appeared to be working as intended. But that didn’t stop them from continuing to whine anyway.
