Liberals & Democrats
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is known for saying ridiculous things seriously and pretending they’re reasonable while leaving everyone else scratching their heads. He even once suggested it would be “okay” if CNN’s ratings would plummet 40 percent after President Trump left office. Well, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Stelter beclowned himself when he suggested the liberal media somehow “underplayed” the size of the so-called “blue wave” that supposedly swept the nation on Election Day.
As the contentious Florida gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races moved on to a mandatory machine recount, they do so under a cloud corruption as Democratic election officials were accused of voter fraud and other forms of misconduct. Despite the fact that Florida courts had already ruled twice against Democrats, ABC’s and NBC’s Sunday morning new programs ignored the orders for transparency. The networks preferred to keep the truth hidden.
On her MSNBC show today, discussing Republican criticism of Broward Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes, Joy Reid says: "here is the way they are treating Brenda Snipes, who is the long-time Election Supervisor there, who by the way is an older black woman in the Deep South."
The Republican Party did better in the midterm elections than many in the media and the anti-Trump “Resistance” expected. The New York Times let its pro-Democratic hopes overwhelm its objective journalism in several instances before and after the voting. The lead National section story on Election Day morning was “Democrats See Close Sun Belt Races as Key to Senate.” Meanwhile, the Times has ignored one historic "first" from Tuesday: Republican candidate Young Kim is on track to become the first Korean-American woman to serve in Congress.
A few segments before his unhinged rant suggesting prayer should be outlawed concerning tragedies like the California bar shooting and that gun rights don’t come from God, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for the President and acting Attorney Matt Whitaker by screeching out of the blue at friendly panelists. This bizarre tangents came to a boil when he didn’t so much ask a question of The Washington Post’s Robert Costa as he did blurt out that Trump has “got steel [balls] to pulls this off” by firing Sessions and replacing him with Whitaker.
During an interview with Democratic Congresswoman Primila Jayapal on Friday, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle suggested Democrats should shut down the government to force Republicans to back legislation protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was quite a reversal for Ruhle, who just a few months earlier hammered President Trump for threatening a shutdown if border security legislation wasn’t passed by Congress.
We are about to find out whether Democrats meant it when they lamented the loss of civility in Washington. Having won the majority in the House of Representatives in Tuesday's election, will they cooperate with Republicans and "reach across the aisle," or will they pander to their base, which wants President Trump's blood? Guess which scenario I'm betting on Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who will likely head the Financial Services Committee, has promised to seek revenge on the banks, which she notes loaned money to people in the '90s so they could buy houses they couldn't afford.
The fury of leftists is a constant today, and it's not just because they hate President Donald Trump. Despite all their dreamy talk of compassion and love, they seem to be a miserable lot. Democrats recaptured control of the House of Representatives this week, and leftists are already grinding their teeth over Trump and salivating at the prospect of putting him and Justice Brett Kavanaugh through investigatory and impeachment hell for the next two years.
[SPOILER ALERT for key plot elements of the final season of House of Cards.] If you thought the Netflix original political drama House of Cards was outlandish in the past, wait until you see how off the rails it goes in its final season while revealing some surprising truths about abortion and feminism on the way. The sixth and final season of House of Cards, released on November 2, takes place following the death of former President Francis “Frank” Underwood.
If anyone doubts that many professional journalists still harbor a liberal bias, an incident involving National Public Radio’s termination of a news story by reporter Gisele Regatao should erase them. After recording an audio segment on a well-known piece of Brazilian art, Regatao was told that her story had been killed “in part because of my accent.”
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews went on a ghoulish tear Thursday night responding to the Thousand Oaks, California bar shooting, bashing religion by telling Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CA) that “thoughts and prayers...should be outlawed” because it means that you don’t “give a damn” about the victims and that gun rights (as enshrined in the Constitution) do not come from God.
In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family.
