  • Dem Congresswoman on Russia: “I’m not convinced they didn’t get into [voting] machines”

    Not even Hillary Clinton, acclaimed author of What Happened, went this far.  On Wednesday's Hardball, Dem Rep. Jackie Speier called Russian "hacking" of the presidential election an "act of war." Taking things a significant step further, Speier said: "I'm not convinced that they didn't get into the [voting] machines." That was too much even for Chris Matthews, who interjected, "we don't know that yet. We don't know that." View the video here.
  • MSNBC’s Butler: Trump’s Neo-Nazi, Racist Behavior Is Just Following Ronald Reagan’s Legacy

    One can always count on the left to overreach. Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler arguing that President Trump’s Charlottesville response was only a continuation of “white racism” put forth by former Republican Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. To make the show’s A-block even more loony, USC professor Erroll Southers later argued that “the right-wing” is “the greatest threat to our nation’s homeland and national security” thanks to Trump being “a champion in the White House.” Host Chris Matthews teed Butler up by wondering if Trump “allowed himself to be identified with the cause of the Civil...

    MSNBC’s ultra liberal Chris Matthews actually called out Antifa violence and questioned who they are what it is that they stand for exactly (finally). Lecia Brooks, of the Southern Poverty Law Center fought back claiming masked Antifa members “take a principled stand to stand against white supremacists wherever they may show up.” What she really means is that if you are a Trump supporter, you are a white supremacist. “I know their name is anti-fascist. Do they only go after fascists or anybody, say, in the global economic community they don’t like? Matthews began. “No. They are strictly anti-fascists. They...

    MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was back and firing on all cylinders Monday night, overseeing a show devoid of reason as it linked conservatives, Republicans, and anyone in the “right-wing” to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists associated with Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism.  Matthews also showed ineptitude in not knowing until very recently that progressive heartthrob and President Woodrow Wilson loved the KKK film Birth of a Nation so much that he had it shown at the White House. Out of Control ‘Hardball’ Lumps GOP in with Neo-Nazis, Shocked Wilson Loved ‘Birth of a Nation’He began his show with a personal summation...
  • Progressives Have Long History of Foreign Collusion

    Newsmax.com ^ | July 17, 2017 | Chuck Morse
    Progressive commentators Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Stephanie Miller, and their cacophonous coterie of smart sounding experts and political hacks toss around words like "collusion" "treason" "un-American" to describe a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. held with "the Russians" to gather opposition research, a minor scandal for sure, but they forget history. They claim the moral high-ground and they are in full Dutch with their leftist memes on display, the cackles and the smirks, the overdose of smug. They want us to forget their decades of sycophantic support for the corrupt antics of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their greed, their...

    Via the Free Beacon, this is unexpected. MSNBC is Collusion Central, which is why its ratings are exploding. Matthews admitting that there’s no apparent “there” there on that network is like Hannity saying “gee, Trump sure did behave improperly” on Fox.Matthews marvels that it sounds from Comey’s testimony like Flynn doesn’t have the goods on Trump after all. We already knew that, though, didn’t we? Flynn is reportedly seeking immunity but the feds aren’t interested (so far). If he had something that might take down the president, his lawyer would have made that known to prosecutors and immunity would...

    Q. Is there anything—anything!— about which the MSM won’t criticize about the Trump administration? A. No, judging by the mind-bogglingly minuscule, absurd any hypocritical thing that Chris Matthews has found to carp about. On his Hardball show of May 30th, Matthews got bent out of shape over the fact that Jared Kushner . . . might have a car and driver take him to work at the White House. View the video here.

    On the same day that the media were back shining Hillary Clinton’s apples, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent Tuesday night carrying water for far-left darling and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), telling her that she possesses a “mastery” in her “thrilling” “speaking skills.”

    On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews said “New polls this week show the president with ocean-bottom job approval. That said, his supporters stick like a bathtub ring. Among those who voted for him, says the Washington Post, 96% said they have no regrets about supporting him.” The non-stop attacks from Dems and the MSM haven’t shaken support for President Trump among those who voted for him. A frustrated Matthews let his vexation show by comparing Trump supporters to that stubborn ring around the bathtub. View the video here.

    Chris Matthews has invited liberals at the IRS to leak the audit status of President Trump's tax return. On this evening's Hardball, Matthews said: "we know there's no audit [of Trump.] Can't the IRS just make a statement, he's not under audit? Just make the announcement. By the way, that would be a good leak. Somebody at the IRS just leaking. I thought they were all liberals over there. Why doesn't somebody just leak it?" Pursuant to 26 US Code Sec. 7213, disclosing an individual's return information, which would presumably include the audit status of a return, is "a felony...

    On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews repeatedly analogized the Trump family to the Czarist Romanov family that ruled Russia. Matthews ominously concluded, “we know what happened to the Romanovs.” Of course, “what happened to the Romanovs” is that the Tsar and his family were killed by Bolshevik troops in 1918, during the Russian revolution. Nice analogy, Chris. View the video here.

    MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said on Tuesday that he had a "hard time" saying "President Trump," and suggested President Donald Trump at times was more like a "blogger" than President. "It seems like that guy like he's some blogger. He's not the president," Matthews said after recalling Trump's previous speculations about former President Barack Obama and Sen. Ted Cruz's (R., Texas) father. "When he gets up at dawn and starts tweeting, that doesn't seem like an official statement from a president. It strikes me as the guy who used to say Obama was [an] illegal immigrant or that Ted...

    Chris Matthews and the Goofy Looking Dude from the Southern Poverty Law Center have a point: We do not have any evidence Donald Trump did not personally knock over 200 headstones in a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis. But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing.   The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump...

    Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference. Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    Wait a second: was that Sean Hannity on Fox News? Nope, it was Chris Matthews on MSNBC last night, expressing surprising skepticism over the 9th Circuit’s decision to uphold the stay of President Trump’s executive order on immigration.Matthews made a multi-pronged attack on the ruling. Matthews suggested political motives on the part of the Court:”so much of this court ruling is based on what they think about Trump.” He called it “an odd ban on Muslims if it doesn’t include 95% of Muslims.” Matthews suggested that the ruling would not have gone 3-0 against the order if it had been...
  • Chris Matthews: Gorsuch Vote Will Go To A Filibuster; Democrats Will Not Vote For Him "Not A One"

    Matthews said politics have become so polarized that is natural to assume there will be a filibuster against Judge Gorsuch. "I think this is going to come down, to a sad denouement," Matthews said Wednesday night. "I think it's going to take 60 votes to get this approved and I think the Republicans will have their rank-and-file 52 votes will be there. But I don't think the Democrats are going to give them a single vote which mean this will go to a filibuster." "I don't think they'll get 60 votes because I don't think they'll get a single Democratic...

    Chris Matthews gave generally respectful treatment to pro-life activist Abby Johnson, who appeared on last night’s Hardball in the context of discussing the March for Life. But Matthews challenged Johnson on the position—generally adopted by the pro-life movement—that the only person who should be punished is the doctor performing the abortion, and not the woman who chose to have one. Said Matthews: “If abortion’s a murder and the person who goes to an abortion clinic is given no sanctions, no punishment whatever, there’s something that doesn’t square there . . . if you believe it’s murder, you go after the...

    From the man who brought us “fake but accurate” . . . Dan Rather is possibly the living person least entitled to pontificate about the importance of truth in journalism and politics. So naturally, Chris Matthews invited him on this evening’s Hardball to do just that. Hat tip Colleen B. In criticizing Kellyanne Conway’s use of the term “alternative facts” to explain White House spokesman Sean Spicer’s comments while addressing the press this past Saturday, Rather said: “facts, and the truth . . . are at the very foundation of our democracy.” View the video here.

    No more tingles. Chris Matthews is clearly missing the tingle. There is no longer a thrill running up his leg. Like a jilted lover, he desperately desires to be wooed once more and, apparently, he was hoping that President Donald Trump would do that in his inaugural address. It seems Trump was too harsh and abrupt in his speechmaking. Tingles was left unsatisfied, and came away disappointed.

    Imagine if just after the 2008 election, a conservative pundit had said this of President-elect Obama: “how do you dog-train Obama? I mean it tough. Dog train. If he poops in the hall, you make his nose go in it.” Western civilization as we know it might have ended right there. But on this evening’s Hardball, that’s precisely what Chris Matthews said—except about Donald Trump, of course. His point seemed to be that Trump must be brought to heel should he have the audacity to follow through on his promises to build the wall and end Obamacare. View the video...
