Five Myths About Socialism, Part Two

February 11th, 2021 12:24 AM

Last week, I reported on two myths about socialism. My new video covers three more. Myth No. 3: Socialism works if it's "democratic." As the Democratic Socialists of America put it, "Society should be run democratically -- to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few." Sounds nice. If socialists are elected, then we'll have a more just society. But Venezuela's socialists were…

February 2nd, 2021 8:26 PM

Tuesday’s White House press briefing was perhaps Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s most combative one yet, facing tough questions on China, coronavirus relief, illegal immigration, Israel, and schools but also softballs on topics like COVID and impeachment.

LAME: NYT Goes Cynical, Hostile Against Pompeo, Israel

November 21st, 2020 5:27 PM

The New York Times atavistic hostility to Israel shows through in Friday’s piece, “Pompeo Trip to Israel Delivers Parting Gifts, Delighting Hard-Liners.” Neither reporter David Halbfinger and Isabel Kershner can be accused of being sympathetic to Israel, yet this latest entry is especially hostile and cynical in its treatment of what is possibly U.S. Secretary of State’s Mike…

November 18th, 2020 5:37 PM

On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell repeatedly whined over the Trump administration still conducting foreign policy after the election, as if that was unusual or improper.

September 15th, 2020 9:06 PM

It was quite the sad sight to behold during the Tuesday evening newscasts.
