MRC's Brent Baker caught a nasty attack from Hollywood director Rob Reiner on MSNBC's airwaves Saturday after the news broke that a woman counter-protesting white supremacists was hit and killed by a car backing up at extreme speed. Reiner called Trump an "accessory" to the death for "stoking this stuff" of white resentment. Reiner recently tweeted about the need for "all-out war" on the president.
Virginia Democratic Senator and former vice-presidential candidate Tim Kaine announced on Thursday that he will oppose President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch. The smear Kaine has employed to justify his opposition has generated well-deserved criticism, especially in the Commonwealth. The Washington Post's alleged fact-checking operation, however, has given him an unearned pass.
A week ago, our MRCTV colleague Ashley Goldenberg reported that an admission official at publicly funded George Mason University in Virginia wrote on his personal Facebook page that anyone who opposed gay marriage and voted for Donald Trump is a “worthless piece of trash.” That news of liberal “inclusion” has yet to be noticed by the dominant local newspaper, The Washington Post.
That oversight is twice as biased since the Post jumped at the chance to cover the completely fake news of Miley Cyrus “spontaneously” knocking on dorm doors at George Mason to campaign for Hillary Clinton...which would be a violation of the university’s no-solicitation policy.
On Sunday, I posted on the saga of Andrew Spieles, a member of the Young Democrats at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia who admitted to submitting fraudulent voter registrations for 19 dead people, and the national press's virtually complete disinterest in covering the story.
Spieles' activities, which have gained the attention of but not yet prosecution by law enforcement, represent child's play in comparison to the horrible findings reported Friday by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) and the Virginia Voter’s Alliance (VVA) after an investigation relating to only a small portion of the state's voter-registration rolls.
The left continues to insist that voter fraud is a myth, specifically that "voter fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is nearly non-existent," and that "most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless."
Part of the support system for that insistence comes from the press, where reports of election fraud routinely get ignored or downplayed.
The front of the National section of Monday’s New York Times featured two race-and-ethnicity-charged reports from Minnesota and Virginia, one trying to corrode confidence in three Islamic terrorist convictions of Somalis in Minnesota, the other on a “Racially Charged Fight” over granting blanket voting rights to felons in Virginia, a move expected to benefit the Democratic nominee in November. Reporting from Minneapolis, reporters Jack Healy and Matt Furber’s story gave credence to far-left conspiracy theories right in the headline in “Fair or ‘Conspiracy’? Trial Divides Somalis in Minneapolis," while Sheryl Gay Stolberg happily followed a felon-turned-voting rights activist around Virginia helping enroll Democrats to vote.
George Mason University law school announced it would be renamed the Antonin Scalia School of Law in honor of the recently deceased justice. Yet even in death, the left and its allies at the Times won’t cease their attacks. Friday’s New York Times featured young reporter Nicholas Fandos, “University Critics Draw a Line at Naming Law School for Scalia.” The online headline was positively “fearful” of the change: “What’s in a Name Change? Politics, Some at George Mason University Fear."
La prensa hispana disimula estatus indocumentado de dos individuos acusados del secuestro y violación de una niña de 12 años en cercanías de Washington, DC
Our nation has been rocked, yet again, by news of horrific crimes committed against the most vulnerable among us- by individuals who are in this country illegally. Sadly, our domestic Spanish-language networks have once again chosen to be derelict in their duty to fully inform the community; by either hiding the suspects' immigration status if not blacking out the story altogether.
The libertine Left has done a lot of boasting over the last several years about the inevitability of History vanquishing every corner of American social conservatism. Election Day 2015 was a terrible day for these revolutionaries, as so often it is when it’s the American people, not liberal elites, making the decisions. Let's assess the damage.
Of course, perhaps it was only fitting since the governor's wife donated a couple thousand to Kathleen Matthews's campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives.
In a piece that appeared in the local opinion section of Sunday’s Washington Post, writer Peter Galuszka took to bashing conservative Congressman Dave Brat (Va.) for holding beliefs that provide “eerie allusions to the nation’s xenophobic past” that Galuszka characterized as the U.S. embracing “Judeo-Christian religious tradition, rule of law and free markets.”
