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 This rescinded the administration’s threat of tariffs if the Mexicans refused to take more concrete action to prevent influxes of migrants from illegally entering the U.S.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.
Sometimes you really have to wonder if the hosts of The View actually listen to anything coming out of their mouths. On Thursday’s show alone, the hosts politicized D-Day numerous times, connecting it to gay pride month in one segment, and in another segment, tying it to the southern border crisis. In that latter segment, co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin raged at the “illegal” and “despicable” funding cuts to recreational programs for illegal alien minors, while Whoopi Goldberg claimed our soldiers died fighting in Normandy so we could take care of illegal alien kids.
Wolf Blitzer and his CNN colleagues won’t acknowledge there’s an actual crisis at the southern border, but still insists it’s the United States’ responsibility to take in illegal immigrants. On his show The Situation Room Wednesday evening, Blitzer had on Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger to discuss immigration and even snuck in a snarky question about President Trump dodging the draft to the representative, who also serves in the Air Force.
On Wednesday morning, MSNBC again displayed why the stridently liberal news network has a reputation for taking in conservatives as contributors and then inspiring them to deliver commentary that sounds like it comes from the left. Right-leaning contributor George Will actually hit Republicans from the left on the issue of immigration as he and host Stephanie Ruhle conflated legal and illegal immigration without, of course, ever using the words "illegal" or even "undocumented."
The left’s favorite #Resistance series has unfortunately returned. Hulu’s fictional dystopian series The Handmaid’s Tale is now on its third season, and it doesn’t look like it’ll lighten up anytime soon. Case in point the series premiere not only continues the infernal feminist propaganda but also adds a refugee and illegal immigration allegory.
Renowned British comedian John Cleese is highly opinionated on all sorts of topics, including contempt for Sarah Palin and the George W. Bush-loving American South. But only when he issues (mild) commentary about multiculturalism changing London does the brilliant co-creator of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Fawlty Towers abruptly morph into a grumpy old racist. New York Times reporter Palko Karasz saw fit to cover the “controversy” in hostile fashion in Friday’s edition: “Cleese’s Take On London: It’s No Longer English City.” Cleese's paean to England never had a chance under Karasz's sneer of disapproval.
While NBC Nightly News was worried about President Trump slapping tariffs on Mexican goods because of their ineffectiveness in stemming the flow of migrants through their country and to the U.S., ABC’s World News Tonight went on a ride-along with Guatemala police in the “first of its kind raid on the human smugglers”.
The notoriously dishonest practice of indiscriminately labeling any and all opposition to illegal immigration as ‘anti-immigrant’ reared its ugly ahead once again on Telemundo. Despite the fact that the mission statement of the “We Build The Wall” organization is crystal clear that its sole purpose is to build and maintain “physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States”, it wasn’t enough to stop NBC and Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart from slamming the group on his newscast, for two nights in a row, as ‘anti-immigrant.’
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour praised Angela Merkel on Tuesday, cheering the “courageous, compassionate immigration policy" that has let over one million Muslims into the country. Conversely, she condemned conservative movements, which she described as “dark old demons” and “very dark forces.”
