  • Media Bias Has Real Consequences

    Media bias has real consequences. Ohio’s wealthiest supporter of the Republican party, Leslie Wexner, has withdrawn his support because he was ‘ashamed’ by President Trump’s response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Wexner announced his decision on Friday, just a day after former President Obama gave a speech in Ohio where he attacked Republicans who “try to shield and deflect oversight of [Trump’s] behavior.”A lot of smart people seem to have fallen for the mainstream media's lies about Trump’s comments. NBC News’ coverage of Charlottesville last year was all too typical: “On Tuesday [August 15th, 2017], Trump gave a freewheeling press...

    He's back! President Obama has emerged from his supposed cloistered life to attack President Trump. Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor.Obama, who reportedly has been running his "Organizing for America" operation, along with his White House aide Valerie Jarrett from his expensive home in a Washington neighborhood, spoke to a group of University of Illinois students last Friday, claiming it was his policies, not those of President Trump, that have produced the current economic boom."When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's...

    As Barack Obama lit into President Trump and his voters Friday in a speech at the University of Illinois, much was made of how unprecedented it was for a predecessor to level such public criticisms of an immediate successor. Two reactions came to mind. First, that tradition may be dead. If there are two presidents fond of touting their accomplishments in stark comparison to the competing party, they are Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Second, I didn’t really mind. The Trump era has ushered in a period of unfettered directness that may carry more pluses than minuses. So with pesky...
  • The Battle Liberals Have Wanted From The Beginning Is Here (but they won't like it!)

    The battle liberals have secretly hoped for is finally enjoined. Their “secret weapon” now deployed, they are convinced that the long-promised blue wave is now an inevitability. Ironically, similar to election night in 2016, when they sat befuddled at losses in state after state that they had assumed were theirs for the keeping, a game now unfolds that I believe leads to a second late election night loss in a row. So how will that happen? Easy: the lodestars! As I sat in the green room at Fox News on Friday waiting for my hit on Outnumbered Overtime with Harris...

    Welcome back to the political arena. I caught your speech Friday, you can still read a teleprompter like nobody’s business. Your attacks on Republicans were red meat for your base, which was your goal. Thankfully, they are hungry because President Trump stands on the verge of getting a second Supreme Court justice confirmed. (Do you wake up in the middle of the night screaming, “Merrick Garland!” like so many of your fans do? I kind of hope so.) And I don’t begrudge your breaking with tradition of former Presidents not criticizing their successors. You spent 8 years in office whining...

    While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance. Baldwin first went to CNN weekend host and former Obama official Van Jones, telling him that Obama definitely had “been sitting on” his critiques of Trump for sometime but “today, he did not hold back.”CNN Newsroom Waves Pom-Poms for Obama’s ‘Extraordinary Rebuke’; So ‘Arresting’With that, Jones was off...

    Over the past couple of days, CNN and MSNBC have been freaking out over another Trump administration activity that was also done by Obama administration which the liberal media only just noticed because they've been so fixated on trying to find examples of President Donald Trump mistreating immigrants. Even though both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations sometimes denied passports to residents of southern Texas who were suspected of having fraudulent birth certificates that conceal they were actually born in Mexico, a number of liberal anchors have shown shock over questionable reports that such activity might have increased...

    When President Donald Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA head John Brennan, more than a dozen former high-level intelligence officials fired off a letter that said the president's decision was "ill-considered," "inappropriate" and "deeply regrettable." The next day, 60 former lower-level CIA officials signed an open letter condemning the act. Their letter read, in part: "All of us believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of...

    Do you know what Obama did in South Africa? You're not going to believe it. It's the biggest disgrace in the history of the U.S. presidency. But the mainstream media won't say a word- it's a total blackout. This is (as Obama would say) a "teachable moment." Ninety-plus percent of President TrumpÂ’s coverage by the U.S. mainstream media is negative. Terribly negative. Horribly negative. Remarkably negative. That same media adores and idolizes former President Obama. The difference in the way they are treated is remarkable. Remember it was Obama who first separated illegal alien parents from children. The media said...

    "Join me on Team '18," Barack Obama wrote in a recent fundraising email from his old political group, Organizing for Action. "Every election, every ballot measure, every conversation between now and November ... it all matters." It wasn't much, but the email was one of Obama's few public, political, overtly partisan appeals as the Democratic Party approaches midterm elections that could stop President Trump's agenda and boost Democratic prospects going into 2020. To have an ex-president who remains highly popular with his party sitting on the sidelines cannot be what Democrats hoped. There are reports that Obama plans to campaign...

    The human animal seems hard-wired for tribalism, and the ties that bind are shaped by our compelling need to group together, obeying calls for loyalties and exclusions. Some groupings not only contribute to the gratifications of bonding, whether in family, clubs, choirs or loyalty to sports teams, but also provide the glue that holds a community together. But tribes become the "factions" that former President George Washington warned against in his Farewell Address, heightening differences and rivalries that the Founding Fathers hoped to dilute through checks and balances in the three branches of government. In the age of the internet,...

    “Speaking at an event honoring the late Nelson Mandela ahead of the 100th anniversary of his birth… former president Barack Obama lamented the rise of “strongman politics” and “the utter loss of shame” among political leaders who repeatedly lie… during a speech Tuesday in South Africa that was widely seen as aimed in part at his successor (Trump) (WaPo).And speaking of “strongmen”-- let’s survey some of Nelson Mandela’s most heartfelt proclamations:  “Che Guevara is an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom.”“The cause of communism is the greatest cause in the history of mankind!”“There’s one place where Fidel Castro...

    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, an Obama administration appointee, is scheduled to deliver a report this week on DOJ and FBI abuses during the 2016 campaign cycle. Remember: His last investigation of FBI misconduct advised a criminal referral for fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who allegedly lied to federal investigators. McCabe and at least a half-dozen other FBI employees quit, retired, were fired or were reassigned as a result of fallout from the politicization of the FBI. Yet, as Barack Obama left office, his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, strangely boasted that the Obama administration "has...

    Conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D'Souza received a full pardon from President Trump yesterday after pleading guilty to felony charges of violating campaign finance laws back in 2014. From the beginning, D'Souza has argued the charges brought against him were politically motivated and used as a way to stifle his political activism against the Obama administration and the Left. Documents from the case back up this assertion and show Department of Justice prosecutors misled a federal judge in an effort to get D'Souza a harsher prison sentence.Now, he's speaking out about the situation. "I did not know. I was just in my...

    President Obama was probably very, very confident Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election. Nevertheless, he took unprecedented steps to stump for his former secretary of state. In the end, he couldn’t drag her over the finish line. She went down in defeat. It was one of the biggest political upsets in American history. It was a punch to the mouth of liberal America. The rural voter had his/her revenge. The urban elites were silenced. The irony is this tribalism, this electorate, was not the one Obama was trying to nurture or preserve; he wanted to change our politics, remember? Did...

    If the Justice Department and FBI are, as we've been told incessantly over the past year, not merely patriots but consummate professionals incapable of being distracted by partisanship or petty Washington intrigues, why are Donald Trump's antagonists freaking out over the fact that an inspector general will assess whether political motivation tainted an investigation into the president's campaign? The American people should get a full accounting of what transpired during 2016. Isn't that what we've been hearing since the election? You believe President Trump is corrupt. We get it. But surely anyone who alleges to be concerned about the sanctity...

    "F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims," read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. "The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016," read a story in the May 21 edition of The Wall Street Journal. So much for those who dismissed charges of Obama administration infiltration of Donald Trump's campaign as paranoid fantasy. Defenders of the Obama intelligence and law enforcement apparat have had to fall back on the argument that this infiltration was...

    President Donald J. Trump announced via Twitter that he will officially order the Department of Justice to investigate whether or not President Obama's Department of Justice or the FBI infiltrated his 2016 presidential campaign for political purposes. This announcement comes after the New York Times and Washington Post confirmed a story first reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation's Chuck Ross that a Cambridge professor had been used by the American government to gain access into Trump's presidential campaign. From Chuck Ross:"A top-secret CIA and FBI source who spied on two Trump campaign advisers and initiated contact with a third was all...

    This is a story of priorities and hypocrisy, brought to us by a president who saved the Union and was murdered for it, and a president whose policies and malevolence damaged both the nation and the world, and who is being rewarded for it. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation is in trouble. It is auctioning off non-Lincoln related artifacts in an effort to pay back a loan that is coming due. You see, the Lincoln Library doesn’t make a lot of money or attract enough major donors to operate. This is odd, considering President Lincoln is a “favorite” president...

I don’t think I’m gonna give you the name of the spy, but I’m gonna tell you everything the spy has done. It is the most amazing story. It is a story of entrapment. When you hear this, it’s gonna infuriate you. You’re gonna realize how utterly phony this entire investigation of Donald Trump is. It’s phonier than you even realize now. And there is a CliffsNotes version of this, and there is the intricate detailed version of this....
