Calling someone “racist” has become the default position for liberal politicians and certain members of the media who wish to deflect attention from real problems. President Trump has (again) been called a racist for having the temerity to note that House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) seems to spend more time criticizing him and the border patrol than he does fixing problems in his own home district, which includes about half of Baltimore city.
It turns out many Google’s employees are fans of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). They are happily donating thousands to support their campaigns, even though both presidential candidates want to break up their company. Google employees “donated a total of $87,000 to Warren’s presidential bid so far,” based on their FEC data for the first two quarters of 2019, according to Vox Recode. They also found $58,000 in donations to Sanders.
The Washington Post on Friday couldn’t let old rivalries go, even in death. The paper’s obituary for long time Washington Times editor Wesley Pruden dripped with contempt for the “defiantly abrasive” conservative and his paper. In fact, the paper offered nicer coverage to Fidel Castro, hailing the dead dictator as a “romantic figure in olive-drab fatigues and combat boots.”
The "fact checkers" at Snopes.com are running to the defense of liberal Democrats again in a July 10 post on Rep. Frederica Wilson in an article headlined "Did Rep. Frederica Wilson Advocate Prosecuting People Who ‘Make Fun’ of Congress?" The answer is yes. But David Mikkelsen at Snopes insisted "context is key," that conservative media outlets like the Washington Times and the Daily Wire skipped over how Wilson was responding to rude Facebook memes.
Progressive pastor Rev. Adam Eriksen and his Clackamas United Church have been generating some buzz around his community in Milwaukie, Oregon, according to a CNN report posted on Tuesday. On the marquee sign in front of the church, the pastor has posted messages that read “Harriet Tubman deserves to be on the $20. End white supremacy” and “Our transgender siblings have heartbeats” in response to the “heartbeat” abortion bills being passed across the country. In short, this is CNN’s type of Christian, quite distinct from those stuffy old God n’ morality types the network so disdains.
President Trump happily greeted the Mueller report release by saying "No collusion, no obstruction." The nation's Trump-loathing newspapers weren't going to paint this "historic day" as good for Trump. The Washington Post front-page headline under the top photo said it all: "Frame it however you like, but it's a damning portrait of Trump's presidency."
The flood tide of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border cannot and must not continue. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said of it, “The system is broken and overwhelmed. It is a national emergency.” The definition of emergency might help focus attention: “A sudden, urgent, usually unexpected occurrence or occasion requiring immediate action.”
As part of the liberal media’s obsession with Omarosa’s salacious allegations against the President from her book tour, Tuesday’s White House Press Briefing featured nearly four times as many questions about Omarosa-related topics as all other matters. Specifically, the breakdown was 39 Omarosa questions by 11 reporters to 10 questions for everything else from seven journalists (Afghanistan, Chinese influence in South America, ISIS, the Mueller probe, and Turkey).
In late June, Politico's Josh Gerstein reported that the Associated Press, in a 2017 meeting with FBI and Justice Department officials a month before the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, had voluntarily "disclosed the existence of a storage locker used by Paul Manafort." A Sunday report by Gerstein further revealed that AP gave FBI-DOJ "a bevy of facts" about Manafort's business dealings. Two internal FBI memos released in Friday court filings documenting that meeting's discussions indicate that the wire service essentially gave the FBI and DOJ a roadmap for investigating and prosecuting Manafort, effectively acting as unpaid informants.
On Wednesday's MTP Daily, MSNBC host Chuck Todd led his show's panel in fretting over the NFL decision to bar players from refusing to stand during the national anthem, and seemed open to discontinuing the playing of the anthem at games after New York Times Washington correspondent Charlie Savage suggested it.
Several black activist groups conducted a lobbying effort Monday against a GOP House resolution condemning Louis Farrakhan, a person even the usually conservative-bashing Southern Poverty Law Center has condemned for his anti-Semitic, anti-white, and other racially hateful remarks. This is not news in the establishment press, and probably never will be. That's because Monday's effort exposes the groups involved — The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, and Al Sharpton's National Action Network — as unrepentant defenders of hate, and would, if widely known, discredit their claims to speak for the broader black community.
In the final Friday segment of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News's Laura Ingraham focused much-needed attention on the public safety impact of California's refusal to cooperate with ICE's attempts to deport predominantly criminal illegal aliens in that state. Leveraging a Department of Homeland Security press release identifying the dangers the sanctuary state's policies have created when ICE agents try to do their jobs, Ingraham declared: "Shame on you, California. People could die or be injured because you refuse to cooperate."
