Even after persistent attacks by liberal critics, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg doubled down on defending one of America’s most iconic values -- free speech. Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan appeared in a “CBS This Morning” interview which aired this past Monday. During the interview, and in the face of media pressure, the couple defended Facebook’s recent policy changes in favor of free speech.
While Full Frontal host Samantha Bee briefly weighed in on the Democratic presidential debates, she devoted most of her opening monologue Wednesday night to promoting student loan forgiveness. After highlighting some of the candidates’ proposals for dealing with the student debt crisis, Bee declared that “we need student loan forgiveness now.”
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.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough calls on billionaire Tom Steyer to "get some lawyers" to work for the disbarment of Attorney General William Barr. Steyer has spent tens of millions of dollars on TV ads calling for the impeachment of President Trump.
On Tuesday night, MSNBC host Chris Matthews spent the duration of Hardball going after his fellow lefties from their own even more fanatical flank, pushing impeachment because America has “a President who broke his oath” who’s illegitimate on similar footing with disputed home run king Barry Bonds due to his reported use of steroids.
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts argued about the combative exchange between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Rep. Maxine Waters that happened during a committee hearing Tuesday. When the Democrat committee chair wanted to keep questioning Mnuchin, despite a previously agreed upon ending time, the two had a fiery exchange that prompted View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar to gush about how amazing “Auntie Maxine” was for shutting down the Secretary.
We are about to find out whether Democrats meant it when they lamented the loss of civility in Washington. Having won the majority in the House of Representatives in Tuesday's election, will they cooperate with Republicans and "reach across the aisle," or will they pander to their base, which wants President Trump's blood? Guess which scenario I'm betting on Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who will likely head the Financial Services Committee, has promised to seek revenge on the banks, which she notes loaned money to people in the '90s so they could buy houses they couldn't afford.
Less than 24 hours after several packages containing pipe bombs were intercepted on their way to prominent Democrats and the headquarters of CNN, a similar package was found on its way to one of the homes of liberal actor Robert De Niro Thursday morning. On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, anchor Willie Geist broke the news, and contributor John Heilemann made it an opportunity to blame conservative media as responsible for making anti-Trump critics a “target.”
What do you think the top priority of Congress would be if the Democrats win control of the House in November? The answer is something upon which both the left and the right would agree: Impeachment. And yet the official Democrat position is pretend that impeachment is not on their minds 24/7 because they know such an admission could hurt them with the voters. Therefore most of the Congressional Democrats are currently going thru the laughable pretense that the I-word is not their top priority although a number of their members such as Maxine Waters are uncomfortably truthful about their intentions.
Newsbusters has previously reported on the media and the left’s politicization of John McCain’s funeral; not surprisingly, the funeral of “The Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin also got political; with guests taking shots at President Trump and controversial figures such as Nation of Islam Founder Louis Farrakhan taking center stage. Throughout Friday evening’s programming on Fox News, on-air personalities made it clear that they did not appreciate the politicization of Franklin’s funeral.
“Summer of Rage,” feminist author Rebecca Traister’s entry for New York magazine, actually attacked the Democratic Party and journalists from the left while defending harassment of Trump officials in public. The online subhead set the tone: “White men are the minority in the United States -- no wonder they get uncomfortable when their power is challenged.”
Publicly shaming and harrassing Trump’s cabinet is increasingly becoming popular among the liberal left. The left thinks it should happen more often. Maxine Waters, the California Representative who told supporters “if you see anyone from the cabinet in a restaurant” they should “get out” and “create a crowd” has given a “voice and perhaps legitimacy” to “accosting members of his team in public places,” according to Sam Wolfson, journalist for The Guardian.
