Having It Both Ways on the Pandemic
WASHINGTON -- I have always thought that there was something very odd about this COVID pandemic. From start to finish, it has been entoiled in claims of politics. The Democrats murmured against what dark doings President Donald Trump was up to at the pandemic's outset. Then, when the Democrats took power in Washington, the Republicans began to murmur against what dark doings the Democrats were…
The Noose Tightens on Putin’s Ruinous Reign
WASHINGTON -- Back in the days when George H.W. Bush resided in the White House, he told me rather cryptically that I would be getting an invitation to the White House. A few days later I had luncheon with his head of the CIA, Bob Gates, one of the brightest lights that I have ever known in government. Bob wasted no time getting down to business. He told me of his concern that the Russians,…
Morning Joe Surprisingly Skeptical Of Biden's Student Loan Forgiveness
Morning Joe is surprisingly skeptical of Biden's student loan forgiveness program. Much of the criticism aired focused on the unfairness of the plan, which helps people who have gone deep into college debt, while doing nothing for those who didn't go to college, or who saved to go to college or went to less expensive schools.
‘A Hazard’: WSJ RIPS WH Pressuring Twitter to Censor Alex Berenson
The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board slammed Twitter in light of new “hard evidence that Twitter booted blogger Alex Berenson” after White House officials complained about the journalist to Twitter employees.
Humpty Dumpty and the Recession
In Washington things are rarely what they seem. It’s why Congress labels bills with names they think will be more palatable to the public rather than a name that would accurately reflect the content of the legislation. Notice how many times over the years the word “civil rights” has appeared in legislation that often has had little or nothing to do with civil rights. Now Democrats have junked…
Rough Day? Jean-Pierre Flubs Basic Questions on Biden’s COVID Bout
Thursday wasn’t supposed to feature a White House press briefing, but President Biden’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis meant Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was thrown before the press corps and, like most stays, she stepped on plenty of rakes. Over the course of the briefing, she failed to answer and scoffed at basic questions about how the President contracted the virus, whether she herself…
ABORTION SURGE: Major Retailers Ration Plan B Pills
On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that CVS, Walmart, Walgreens and Rite Aid are all experiencing a surge in the purchase of Plan B pills. Three of those companies are rationing the over-the-counter drugs either in store, online, or both.
Another Big Story the Press Missed
WASHINGTON -- The day after Robby Mook, the head of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign for the presidency, implicated her at the top of a conspiracy to link Donald Trump in 2016 with a Russian bank, I could find no mention of it in the leading newspapers of the Republic, save The Wall Street Journal. The Journal covered Mook's testimony in a federal courtroom quite well.
Doocy, WSJ Journo Press Flailing Jean-Pierre Over Disinformation Board
Wednesday’s White House press briefing featured five questions on the so-called pause of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) dangerously Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) and the resignation of its controversial head, Nina Jankowicz. In the midst of the questions from Wall Street Journal’s Tarini Parti and Fox’s Peter Doocy, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre…
CNN+ Was More of a DISASTER Than You Knew: Just How Low Did It Go?
The Wall Street Journal on May 13 conducted an excruciating deep dive on the disaster that was CNN+. The key takeaway: It was even worse than anyone thought. At any one time, there were as few as 5000 people watching. In a country of 329 million.
Doocy Exposes Psaki, Team Biden Over Radical Abortion Rhetoric
Wednesday afternoon on The Psaki Show, Fox’s Peter Doocy held the White House press secretary under duress with questions on the Biden administration’s reaction to the leaked Supreme Court opinion on abortion, including the President’s claim that Republicans could ban gay students from being in the same classroom as straight students and his phrasing of abortion involving “a child.”
NEW: Twitter Reportedly Reconsidering Musk’s Offer
According to The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Twitter is reportedly reconsidering Elon Musk’s offer to purchase the platform for $43 billion. The Journal said the platform might be more receptive to a deal after Musk received $46.5 billion in financing.
Clueless Economist Tries to Pitch Americans on ‘Really Good Economy'
The same economist who admitted he got “inflation” wrong claimed the economy is thriving under President Joe Biden. At this point, flipping a coin might make more accurate economic predictions than New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.
Doocy Rewind: Peter Goes Off on COVID Hypocrisy, Phones for Illegals
Given the busy news week, we wanted on Monday morning to recap the best and the worst from Thursday and Friday’s episodes of The Psaki Show and hone in on Fox’s Peter Doocy sparring with Press Secretary Jen Psaki over COVID cases around the President and Vice President and then free cellphones for illegal immigrants.
