The Daily Kos
No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement Wednesday and the liberal media meltdown went from 0 to 60 within a second of the news breaking. Abject fear enveloped the left as the prospects of a fresh open seat on the Supreme Court during the Trump administration materialized.
Vice Media, a digital Website and broadcasting company that generates news on technology and related topics, removed two articles from its site on Wednesday, June 28, that supposedly discussed a behind-the-scenes tumult over the addition of an animatronic robot version of President Donald Trump in the “Hall of Presidents” attraction in the Disney World theme park in Orlando, Florida.
Associated Press (AP), the arbiters of style for journalism, issued new rules related to global warming and climate change coverage, infuriating liberal environmentalists.
Their anger stemmed from AP’s guidance which said to use the label “climate change doubters” or “those who reject mainstream climate science” when discussing those that do not accept man-made climate change, rather than “skeptics” or “deniers.”
The left is up in arms over the pharmaceutical CEO who raised prices for a drug mostly used by AIDS patients by more than 5,000 percent, but experts CNBC interviewed said regulatory barriers helped make it possible.
Founder and CEO of Turing Pharmaceutical, Martin Shkreli bought the generic drug Daraprim, which is used for parasitic infections in pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals. He hiked its cost from $13.50 a pill to $750, a whopping 5,455 percent.
Green bullies are at it again, this time trying to shame museums into dropping conservative philanthropist David Koch and his money.
A group of alarmist scientists wrote an open letter claiming museums like the Smithsonian’s Museums of Science and Natural History in Washington, D.C., and the American Museum of Natural History in New York City have compromised their “integrity” by accepting money from him.
Two of the leading lights of the lefty blogosphere weighed in Tuesday on the Bowe Bergdahl matter. Daily Kos founder and publisher Markos Moulitsas, who served a three-year stint in the Army just after graduating from high school, blasted the anti-Bergdahl rhetoric of bloodyhanded neoconservative "chickenhawks" who aren't ashamed to opine despite being "wrong about everything in the last decade."
Kos claimed that since the Afghan war "is now over," the five Taliban exchanged for Bergdahl had to be released anyway "under international law." From Moulitsas's post (emphasis added):
With yesterday's news of the IRS apology for intentionally targeting conservative groups, left-wing activists were seen choking on their gluten-free soy lattes. And nowhere was the sulking more apparent than at the DailyKos, the East Bay-based "progressive" website.
With the obligatory teabag image accompanying his rant, KosKook Jed Lewison took exception to others calling for an investigation of the IRS, instead demanding a federal push against "scam artists" and "political grifters" (meaning anyone not on the extreme left).
Guess who loves CNN's Soledad O'Brien? The liberals at the Daily Kos! They think she's "the best thing to happen to journalism" and have suggested starting a petition for her to supplant David Gregory as host of NBC's Meet the Press.
"Sure, O'Brien does criticize the Tea Party and others in the GOP heavily but that doesn't necessarily make her a partisan. I mean, she's a frickin' journalist," wrote member "pipsorcle." Yes, even the Daily Kos admits that O'Brien goes after the GOP an awful lot.
