We no longer live in a constitutional republic. We live in an idiocracy. Only in modern-day America, under the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, is the basic proposition that federally subsidized public housing should benefit American citizens and legal residents slammed as “despicable” and “damaging.” Those are the hysterical words used by Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City to condemn the proposal discussed by Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday to ban government aid to residents of HUD who shelter illegal immigrants.
One company started marketing “makeup for men” and people are freaking out – but it’s not who you might think. Although the brand War Paint has been out for months, the UK company’s male makeup line went viral with a video tweet on May 8. Now, to most people, the objectionable part is simply a man wearing make up. But to the woke left on Twitter and their chroniclers in the media, the problem is War Paint’s toxic masculinity, male insecurity, cultural appropriation, and lack of inclusive shades.
The liberal media gave Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar a pass yet again this week after she was criticized for making more offensive, unpatriotic comments. In a resurfaced 2017 tweet that went viral Monday, Omar attacked American troops who died in the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (told in the book/movie “Black Hawk Down,”) as killers. One of the few liberal media outlets to actually talk about the backlash Omar received was Newsweek, and they only did so to defend her outrageous comments.
Former President Barack Obama's fake basketball legend continues to grow with each passing season. Thanks to suck-up, Left-stream media enthralled with his obsession about something, like his presidency, that he was never much good at. Newsweek features a story that's more about Obama than the tribute he made to the Miami Heat's retiring guard Dwyane Wade. The friend to NBA players everywhere fudges on his own basketball "career" and Newsweek writer Dan Cancian let it slide right by.
Newsweek joined the rest of the press, heavily invested in Trump’s guilt, in hysterics over Attorney General Bill Barr’s use of the word “spying” to describe the FBI’s investigation of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. Reporter Nicole Goodkind's analysis featured the bizarre headline “William Barr Is Redefining What it Means to ‘Spy.’” Goodkind engaged in some mindreading to assume Bill Barr is a Trump flunkie: "Attorney General William Barr exonerated President Donald Trump of all wrong-doing in the Russia investigation last month, and now he wants to take things a step further."
What happens when you combine Nina Burleigh, liberal Newsweek writer who infamously wanted to give Bill Clinton oral sex for keeping abortion legal, with Cecile Richards, former president of billion dollar abortion giant Planned Parenthood? Only your typical pro-abortion media propaganda.
On Tuesday afternoon, the flailing, moribund Newsweek released a 4,600-word-plus cover story for its latest issue celebrating the anti-Semitism of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with the title “How Ilhan Omar Is Changing the Conversation About Israel—and Upending the 2020 Campaign.” And based on the reaction on Twitter (highlighted by our friends at the Daily Caller, Daily Wire, and FoxNews.com), the syrupy Omar profile was ratio’d into oblivion.
Ahhhh memories. Here at CPAC this week, the stories abound about President Donald Trump walking away from the Hanoi Summit. Here are a few of the headlines. From the Los Angeles Times: “Art of the retreat: Summit failure further scuffs Trump's dealmaker claims.” From USA Today: “Donald Trump's big fail on North Korea: He didn't prepare and he got played.” From Newsweek: “Has Trump Failed in North Korea? Pyongyang Says it Will Not Give up Nukes Without U.S. Demilitarization.”
The good thing about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is that it is very straightforward, there’s little wiggle room for the media’s typical machinations and euphemisms when it comes to abortion. The media has to be honest about what the bill is and what it does, which is why they like to take the focus off it and make the story about President Trump and Republicans.
California is the poster state for illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. So while some of the locals saw it as novel and humorous when fans wearing President Donald Trump and border wall shirts showed up at a Sacramento Kings NBA game Friday night, it was red meat for media who scrutinized the messages as potentially obscene.
President Trump spoke about important topics to our country like abortion, adoption and religious liberty at the National Prayer Breakfast, but his critics instead focused on a word slipup to bash and mock him on Thursday.
One can only wonder at this point. Does the liberal media have any idea - any idea at all - as to how much they are damaging their own credibility? The latest case in point: the phone calls Donald Trump Jr. made in the wake of the now-famous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016. Samples include stories like this from 2018:
