Much of Europe was asleep, or in denial, when the Nazis took power and began rebuilding their military in violation of the Versailles Treaty that brought World War I to an end. Now, after years of virtually unlimited migration from predominately North African and other Muslim regions, some European nations are awakening to what this could mean for their countries and are responding, hoping it's not too late.
One of the left’s biggest weapons is identity politics, and the media will continually ignore facts to keep this weapon functional. This is especially true regarding Christians, whom the media label as bigots and oppressors. They can never be seen as victims and so the media report accordingly.
On Saturday afternoon, Ken Thomas and Jon Gambrell at the Associated Press demonstrated the wire service's chronic resistance to recognizing genuinely good news during the Trump era. The pair pretended in their story about Donald Trump's Saturday conversation with Saudi King Salman that the President could only "claim" that Saudi Arabia has agreed to significantly boost its oil production in response to a tightening in worldwide supplies — even though as soon as Trump tweeted about it, the Saudi news agency confirmed its substance.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's Across America with Carol Costello on HLN, liberal comedian and CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah ranted against the views of conservatives on immigration, and suggested that those who support enforcing the law against illegal border crossings are not "real Americans," as he debated Amy Kremer of Women for Trump. He further demonized Donald Trump supporters as people that "the bulk of Americans have nothing in common with those people," and hyped a study suggesting that 18 Americans -- out of a total of 14,000 homicides -- were killed by white supremacists in 2017.
Despite the majority opinion declaring that the ban did not target Muslims, the liberal media continued to allude to it as such. During their evening broadcasts, ABC, CBS, and, NBC all pushed some form of frightful future for America either stemming from the Supreme Court’s decision or from the possibility of Trump getting to add another conservative justice.
Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews spending two separate segments sucking up to former Obama foreign policy and intelligence officials John Brennan and Ben Rhodes, complimenting the former for “know[ing] so much” and the latter for his “beautiful” new book defending his role in the far-left Obama legacy.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's Morning Joe to promote his new film on the Iraq War, Shock and Awe, liberal film maker Rob Reiner claimed that Fox News, Breitbart News and other right-leaning news outlets are acting as "state-run media" for President Donald Trump, and laughably claimed that President Bill Clinton "wasn't supported by the mainstream media."
In the early morning hours on Sunday, the same CNN that has yet to inform viewers that over 80 percent of Palestinians recently killed by the Israeli military are terrorists, took the time to highlight the death of a Palestinian nurse, Razan al-Najjar, supposedly killed by Israeli sniper fire. By contrast, over the past few days, Fox News Channel has found time to inform viewers of Hamas's new tactic of "kite terrorism" in which kites are flown across the border to set fires to Israeli farmland.
History has again repeated itself as the dominant media have so far ignored the finding released on Monday that over 80 percent of those killed by the Israeli military over the past couple of months in Gaza have been identified as affiliated with terrorist groups. The left-leaning media outlets that talked up the likelihood that the Israelis were mostly killing peaceful civilian protesters have ignored the development just as they did after the wars that occurred in 2009 and in 2014.
May 2018 has been extraordinary for its high volume of establishment press corrections and erroneous tweet deletions. One particular correction at the New York Times stands out from the rest of that crowded field. In that correction, published on May 16 (for the May 17 print edition), the Times admitted that reporter Gardiner Harris committed four significant errors in an attack piece posing as a hard-news story about Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank.
On his Sunday show on CNN, as Fareed Zakaria presided over a segment discussing the week's news on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only the left and the far left were included as liberal New York Times columnist Tom Friedman slammed President Donald Trump's Israel policy as "diplomatic pornography," and Palestinian activist Hanan Ashrawi claimed that all of Jerusalem is "occupied" and tried to downplay the culpability of Hamas in the violent Gaza protests and attacks on the Israeli border fence.
In the past week, several networks have repeated questionable claims that an eight-month-old Palestinian baby was killed by Israeli tear gas in the Gaza Strip. And MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin even went so far as to twice repeat a discredited story that a paraplegic in a wheel chair was killed by Israeli snipers without noting that the IDF already disputed the story in March.
