Seeking to deflect criticism of Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar for her history of anti-Semitic remarks, Morning Joe swung into whataboutism mode today. Joe Scarborough flagrantly mischaracterized a tweet by GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy prior to the midterms. Scarborough twice claimed that McCarthy had said: "don't let Jews buy the election."
The liberal media outlet The Intercept reported that its scrutiny of the liberal Center for American Progress recently led to the firing of two CAP employees “suspected” of leaking emails. Leaked emails showed concern among some staff about United Arab Emirates’ influence at the liberal group.
CAP is one of the most well-known liberal groups in Washington, D.C. and is supported by a host of prominent left-wing names including George Soros and Tom Steyer. Soros gave more than $12 million to CAP between 2005 and 2014 and more since.
The liberal journalism non-profit ProPublica is expanding again — this time to Washington, DC so it can do even more anti-Trump administration investigations.
Of course, that wasn’t how the group framed it, but it’s doubtful it’ll be doing a lot of investigations of liberals considering its donor base and the articles it chose to showcase this expansion.
The liberal media were at it again in 2018, continuing to misreport, exaggerate, censor and spin business and economic news.
Some moments were laughable, such as when a New York Times reporter implied America no longer uses coal for energy. Others, such as the warning of a “climate genocide,” were no laughing matter.
Each time an end-of-the-world prophecy is delivered -- whether by a self-deluded preacher, a group of politicians or scientists -- we are told that we must believe. Never mind how many of their prophecies have been wrong in the past, this time they mean it. The latest prophecy of doom and planetary extinction comes from a government report authored by people appointed during the Obama administration. This report, and others before it, concluded that Earth is warming, humans are responsible and that we have only 10 years to fix it.
Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer is taking a victory lap now that Democrats have won a majority in the House of Representatives. But voters should wonder why broadcast networks failed to report on his $120-million dollar efforts to flip the House so that the left can impeach President Donald Trump. The left now has the power to investigate and try to impeach Trump. NBC Nightly News acknowledged those “huge” stakes on election night, yet NBC, ABC and CBS evening newscasts ignored or covered up Steyer’s spending and influence during the election year.
If Democrats manage to obtain a majority in the House of Representatives, lefty California billionaire and mega-donor Tom Steyer doesn’t want them working with the Republicans to get things done.
Steyer told Slate staff writer Jim Newell on Nov. 5, that would be a waste of time, and instead, the Democrats should investigate the Trump administration, “punish people” and disgrace the GOP. Since 2017, Steyer has been calling for Trump’s impeachment. He committed $120 million to midterm efforts including his “Need to Impeach” organization. His creation of a huge political machine has led many to anticipate a Steyer run for president in 2020.
Billionaires, especially liberal ones, aren’t just funding candidates and impeachment campaigns in 2018. Many are also funding ballot initiatives around the country, mostly in states they don’t live in.
The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) found that 34 billionaires including liberals George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent a combined $78 million on statewide ballot measures this year. The story was co-published by the left-wing magazine The Atlantic.
Both the media and liberal billionaire Tom Steyer are preoccupied with the potential for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, according to Fox News hosts and MRC’s Dan Gainor. “Remember going back even before he took office, you had people calling for his impeachment,” Gainor told Fox & Friends on Aug. 27. “The left has been out to get him the whole time.”
After already committing $110 million to his midterm efforts, California billionaire Tom Steyer said he would spend even more to turn out liberal voters in November.
At a Lansing, Mich., town hall on Aug. 13, Steyer announced he would spent another $10 million on a “Need to Vote” campaign through his Need to Impeach organization. He told the crowd they are in a “fight to save the soul of America.”
The midterm elections are slightly more than three months away, and already the Impeach Trump crusader Tom Steyer plans to spend at least $110 million on this election cycle.
Politico reported on July 31, that it will make the California billionaire “the largest single source of campaign cash on the left.” Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has committed $80 million to try to “flip the House.”
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, liberal billionaire Tom Steyer said perhaps a “nuclear war” would turn people against President Donald Trump, and “then we get a real course correction.” Contributing editor Tim Dickinson barely pushed back, simply saying, “Wow — that’s ... sobering.”
