On June 6, liberal activist Christopher Keelty announced to the world how he benefited from his child’s death by abortion. Ironically, he did this on the online publication Fatherly, which describes itself as “the leading digital media brand for dads.” Keelty wrote an essay titled What My Partner’s Abortion Taught Me: Men Benefit From Choice, Too after he and his partner Liz decided they were not “ready” to have kids.
On Sunday's Kasie DC show, during a segment on the new abortion laws passed by a number of conservative states, MSNBC host Kasie Hunt only made room for reactions from liberals as Planned Parenthood president Leana Weng and National Urban League president Marc Morial were allowed to participate in the segment.
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the show was fixated on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commenting last night that he would work to fill a hypothetical U.S. Supreme Court vacancy if one occurred in 2020, as hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota brought up the issue repeatedly across all three hours of the show. Additionally, no conservative commentators were included in the panel discussions even while several liberal contributors including Joe Lockhart, John Avlon, and Catherine Rampell were allowed to give their negative commentary against McConnell.
In a clip that had gone viral on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell humorously declared that he would indeed fill a Supreme Court vacancy if one were to become available during the 2020 election. Pouncing on the “hypocrisy,” CNN host Chris Cuomo angrily proclaimed the elder statesman to be the “poster child” for deceitfulness and “all things wrong with politics.”
Since 1973, when Roe vs. Wade ushered in what would eventually lead to abortion on demand, including partial-birth abortion and even the failure to protect babies born alive after failed procedures — the pro-life movement has achieved few legislative victories. That may be about to change. While New York and several other states have passed statutes effectively allowing infanticide, more conservative states are passing “heartbeat” bills and other restrictions.
Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Kasie DC on MSNBC, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg predicted that a circuit court panel would have to be made up of "whack jobs" to side in favor of recently passed laws banning abortion. She also joined with Jeremy Peters of the New York Times to repeat misleading polling claiming that a solid majority of Americans support Roe v. Wade and therefore abortion.
The state of Alabama enacted the most pro-life law in the country on Wednesday and the liberal media were outraged at the thought of protecting unborn life. Each of the three broadcast networks kicked off their evening news programs by fretting over it, with NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt decrying how “46 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled abortion a constitutional right, the state of Alabama has just openly defied that landmark decision.”
CNN’s John Berman talked to retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on Tuesday and somehow never managed to call Stevens a liberal, despite his evidently far-left positions. The New Day co-host however, still managed to ask, “Are you still a Republican?”
Talk about misleading your audience. The Washington Post, in a front page headline teasing a story on John Paul Stevens, described the famously liberal Supreme Court justice as a “centrist.” The above-the-masthead tease insisted, “At 99, reflecting on a career as a Supreme Court centrist.” What’s most dishonest is that the misleading headline is even contradicted by Post writer Robert Barnes. In the article, appearing on A-11, he noted that Stevens “retired in 2010 as the court’s most outspoken liberal.” Outspoken liberal is an accurate description of the pro-abortion rights, anti-Second Amendment judge.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle worried about “breaking traditions” and “seeing norms eroded” in order to get Donald Trump’s court nominees approved. This came in the wake of Mitch McConnell ignoring the objections Democratic senators as the 2nd Circuit’s Joseph Bianco was confirmed. Ruhle opened the segment by fretting that the Senate Majority Leader is “ is breaking tradition this week by moving forward” on Bianco “ despite the objection of both of his home state senators.” She acknowledged, “Yes, they're both Democrats, but this is only the third time happened in the 230-year history of the Senate.”
Who remembers the hysterical sound and fury of open borders leftists last summer over President Donald Trump's detention and enforcement policies at our besieged southern border? Remember the #FamiliesBelongTogether, #WhereAreTheChildren, #AbolishICE and #MeltICE hashtags? Remember the “Trump Child Abuse,” “Free the Children,” “Save the Children” and “AMERICANS DON'T USE CHILDREN AS PAWNS,” posters wielded at protests across the country?
Former Vice President Joe Biden was on The View Friday where he was pressed by the hosts, from the left, over his treatment of Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas hearings. The hosts begged him to apologize to Hill, and the women who accused him of inappropriate touching and kissing. Considering these are the two biggest issues facing his presidential campaign so far, you would think he’d have his answers more prepared. Still, Biden struggled to answer each question as he tried to defend his behavior instead of apologizing.
