You know how celebrity lefty big-mouths like Barbara Streisand or Miley Cyrus are always threatening to leave the country if Americans don’t vote correctly? And then, no matter how many times you offer to help them move, they don’t? Turns out there really are lefties who don’t just voice their disdain for normal Americans; they show it with their feet. After Georgia governor Brian Kemp signed the state’s new “heartbeat bill,” three production companies decided to put their money where the mouths are and pull out all production from the Georgia film industry.
A week is not a long time. It’s only 1/52nd of a year. But eco-warriors determined to be rid of fossil fuels will latch on to anything to try to prove renewables can shoulder the demand for energy.
Think Progress and EcoWatch did just that on May 8, celebrating that the UK’s “electrical grid has gone more than seven days without burning any coal.” BBC and CNN both quoted Fintan Slye of the UK National Grid Electricity System Operator. The Guardian also reported the coal-free week.
“It's already happened,” writes CNN’s John Blake. “People are obsessed over the appearance and racial identity of the new royal baby. That's going to go into overdrive now.” They are? It is? Well Blake certainly is, spinning out a long article speculating about the race and looks of an infant in another country he likely will never meet.
April was a great month for jobs with another upside surprise.
CNN reported on May 2, that it was expected to be “a healthy but unspectacular” 185,000 jobs. Unemployment was expected to remain at 3.8 percent. MarketWatch was expecting a “robust increase” of around 213,000 jobs.
Registered Nurse Theresa Brown had an outrageous and horrific op-ed posted on CNN on April 30 that says, far from being an execution, every abortion has "good." Brown takes umbrage with President Trump describing babies killed after botched abortions as executions, calling it a lie “so outrageous and horrific that the only good response to it is to state that such things never happen.”
Well, we finally have the opportunity to see what the Obamas have up their media mogul sleeves. After announcing a multi-million dollar Netflix deal, the former first couple have spilled the beans on their new streaming content, offering diehard Obama fans several options for clinging to the “Hope” and “Change” social justice dream from the comfort of their living rooms.
A $1.25 trillion giveaway program to college grads and future college students deserves scrutiny, not praise as a “bold,” “sweeping” or “ambitious” plan that could “distinguish” Sen. Elizabeth Warren from her Democratic competitors.
Some news stories, including CBS and NBC online, bordered on being a sales pitch for the plan to forgive student loans and make public colleges tuition-free. CBS boosted Warren’s claims that forgiving student loan debts for millions of Americans “could supercharge the economy,” (even though liberal economists have contradicted that claim in the past). It even asked “What’s not to like?” and only cited one Twitter’s complaint it would be unfair to people who didn’t go to college.
In stark contrast to most of his colleagues at CNN and in the mainstream media in general, Chris Cillizza, sees the Mueller Report as "very good news" for Donald Trump.
The liberal media are forever vigilant about racism and anti-Semitism among the "white nationalists," but go very soft when hateful anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam surfaces at public events. On Thursday, Farrakhan was invited to speak at a memorial service for the rapper Nipsey Hussle, and "mainstream" media outlets either skipped right over it, or noted it without criticism. CNN included Farrakhan in articles titled "The stars align for Nipsey Hussle."
Feminist Jill Filipovic usually draws notice by fervently promoting abortion. So it was strange that she came out hard against the death penalty in a CNN.com op-ed on Wednesday. The headline was "This Supreme Court ruling is exceptionally cruel." Convicted murderer Russell Bucklew is being executed by lethal injection in Missouri, which would be quite painful and drawn-out. (Many would ask the leftists if a firing squad would fit. Bucklew's lawyers suggested it.)
In spite of growing wages, extremely low unemployment and nearly 3 percent economic growth in 2018, the liberal media are becoming obsessed with recession. It didn’t matter that CFOs were confident the U.S. economy “will not experience a recession” in 2019. They were fixated by recession prospects in March anyway.
Every. Single. Day.
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
