Appearing as a guest on Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson blamed a Republican "rage machine" for the level of political polarization that currently exists, and complained about how congressional Republicans are conducting business. She also oddly claimed that Democrats were not partisan in their reaction to President Donald Trump's nomination of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch -- even though Republicans had to change the filibuster rule to keep Democrats from blocking his confirmation to the Court.

 


In the wake of Kathy Griffin holding up a severed head of President Trump, it’s disturbingly obvious that murderous thoughts about our leaders are now considered by the Left to be light and humorous fare, a balm for their anxieties. Charlie Hebdo has a cover with Bristish prime minister Theresa May holding her own head. The New York Public Theater "modernized" Julius Caesar so that the tyrant who gets stabbed to death is Donald Trump. 


Moments before President Trump announced on Thursday that he’d withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate deal, CNN host and serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria lost his mind, fretting that “this is the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world” and a sign of “breathtaking” “irresponsibility” by the President.

 


On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS over the Memorial Day weekend, CNN's Fareed Zakaria gave attention to the issue of liberals on college campuses protesting and trying to bar conservative speakers as he complained that "Liberals think they are tolerant, but often they aren't." And, after getting in a quick dig at "anti-intellectualism on the Right," he also called out "an anti-intellectualism on the Left, an attitude of self-righteousness which says we are so pure, we are so morally superior, we cannot bear to hear an idea with which we disagree."


Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN host Fareed Zakaria indicted the "religious establishment" in some Arab countries for fomenting terrorism in a way that would have liberals accusing him of bigotry or profiling if uttered by a more right-wing analyst. After remarking that the concert attack in Britain was "radical Islamic terrorism -- let's call it what it is," he went on to complain that Arab states have "funded, financed and encouraged" the ideology, and that the "religious establishment" in their countries "has encouraged this kind of violence, these kind of views about Westerners and any nonbelievers."


Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight to discuss revelations that President Donald Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian officials in a recent meeting, CNN host Fareed Zakaria argued that "incompetence" by Trump would be a preferable explanation for the development rather than the more "dark" alternative of it being intentional. Sighing, host Don Lemon worried: "I'm a glass half full guy, but, I mean, it's, for you to say that the most benign or the best explanation is incompetency is -- we're at a very sad place right now."


Since President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, the media have been in an uproar with conspiratorial claims that the Russia investigation was the cause. On CNN Sunday morning, serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria kicked off his show by declaring that there was only one group that could defend America from Trump: The Media. “Donald Trump in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions poses a danger to American democracy,” he announced. “Our task is, quite simply, to keep alive the spirit of American democracy.” 


On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, host Zakaria began his show by admonishing liberals for reflexively opposing anything President Donald Trump does -- calling it "Trump Derangement Syndrome" -- as he responded to those who have attacked the CNN host for supporting Trump's airstrikes in Syria. As Zakaria recalled his own history of condemning Trump on many fronts, he warned liberals against being more concerned about doing what hurts Trump than what is best for America, and pointed out that Trump's actions were consistent with former President Barack Obama's stated policy of trying to prevent the use of chemical weapons in Syria.


In the wake of the U.S. missile strikes against Syrian military targets late Thursday, speculation swirled about what the next step was and what the country’s Syria policy would be going forward. One such speculator was CNN’s resident plagiarist Fareed Zakaria who had a plethora of questions for President Trump. He warned that the strikes could be aiding ISIS. “Are we now saying we’re against Assad? Do we want to strengthen ISIS? Do we want the Assad regime to fall,” he wondered. 


He's done it before, but he quadrupled down this time. CNN's serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria, who insists that former President Barack Obama's administration was "largely scandal-free," contended on Don Lemon's CNN Tonight show Friday evening that Donald Trump owes his whole life, his success and his election to the presidency to "bullsh*tting."


On Sunday's Fareed Zakaria GPS on CNN, during the show's opening "Fareed's Take" commentary, host Zakaria portrayed President Donald Trump as getting very little accomplished apart from "hot air," and mocked those who voted for him by cracking, "How's that working out for you?" Referring to voters who supported Trump in the presidential election in spite of his flaws, Zakaria opened his commentary with an obvious slap at them: "Let's say you are a Trump voter -- the kind you often hear about: an honest, hard-working American who put up with Donald Trump's unusual behavior because you wanted a President who would stop playing Washington's political games, bring a businessman's obsession with action and results, and focus on the economy. How's that working out for you?"


Searches at the Associated Press, the New York Times and the Washington Post for stories in English on "monarca," the Spanish term for the monarch butterfly, currently come up empty. (There is a Post story in Spanish originating with the Associated Press, but it's about a drop in the number of those butterflies present in Mexico.) This absence isn't due to a lack of interest in the butterfly. It's because there's a lack of interest in telling the American people about a concerted effort by Mexico, codenamed Monarca, to slow or halt deportations of its citizens here in the U.S. illegally to a crawl by funding efforts to clog the U.S. court system to the point where it "break(s) down."
