Oops: Eleanor Clift Mangles Karen Handel's Resume on Twitter

June 21st, 2017 5:24 PM

Rob Eno at Conservative Review caught Eleanor Clift in a major Twitter boo-boo, claiming that Congresswoman-Elect Karen Handel was an executive at Planned Parenthood.

Media Hated Investigations Into Clinton’s Obstruction of Justice

June 8th, 2017 11:24 AM
In today’s political climate, an observer would be roundly mocked if they suggested President Trump is the victim of a “spiteful” “witch hunt,” or even a “coup d’etat.” But during the Clinton impeachment drama in 1998 and 1999, liberal journalists trotted out all of those claims as a way to deflect and defend a Democratic President who was impeached for, among other things, obstruction of justice…

November 26th, 2016 9:10 AM
Fidel Castro’s communist regime executed hundreds of political opponents and drove tens of thousands more into exile; hundreds of dissidents today languish in Cuban prisons. Yet liberals in the U.S. media — who rightly condemned such abuses when perpetrated by dictators such as Chile’s Augusto Pinochet — inexplicably remain enchanted with Castro and his socialist revolution.
