  • Monica Crowley: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and the GOP revolt The political earthquake has just begun

    The Washington Times ^ | 2-10-2016 | Monica Crowley
    By Monica Crowley - The Washington Times - Wednesday, February 10, 2016 New Hampshire has a way of dishing out political reversals of fortune, and this week proved the Granite State hasn’t lost its touch. This time, however, it was the Republican establishment that incurred its wrath. The voters are in open revolt. The New Hampshire primary involved high stakes for the Iowa victors, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio. But it was New Hampshire’s unsentimental humbling of the establishment candidates — Gov. John Kasich excepted — that is the story, along with the big win by the ultimate...

    Image courtesy Shutterstock. In the days and weeks since the Paris and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Democrats have spent a lot of time worrying about an anti-Muslim backlash, and have proposed a House resolution to "condemn violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States" to deal with the problem. There does seem to have been an uptick in hateful incidents in the past month, although, as PJ Media's Rick Moran reported, one of the incidents turned out to be a fake hate crime. Most of the incidents are still under investigation. Still, despite Democrat hand-wringing over...

    There is only one person who controls Hillary Clintons fate, and it isnt Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton is careening toward possible criminal charges involving her alleged mishandling of classified material on her personal email server while she was secretary of State. And President Obama is driving the bus. She and her team have, of course, reverted to form, blaming everyone but themselves: a right-wing conspiracy, The New York Times, overzealous investigators. What they are missing, however, is the one figure who wants her taken out politically, and who has the power to do it. She and Mr. Obama have a...

    There is a lot of red meat for conservatives in Monica Crowleys talk. One of the most significant points of the talk is the 13 minute mark. Crowley, the happy warrior, talks about the morning media meetings. In 2007, the media would have staff meetings on how they would best protect Barack Obama in the media. Clearly, conservatives knew this was going on. It was apparent from the medias behavior. For conservatives, the admission that it was going on is merely confirmation of what was obvious. However, it is nice to have for those times when one actually has to...

    The truth is out there and the moderator of the second presidential debate, Candy Crowley, has grudgingly admitted that Mitt Romney was correct when he said President Obama did not call the Benghazi atrocity, in which a U.S. ambassador was raped, killed, and dragged through the streets, a "terrorist attack." Her admission is shown in a video. But let's look at the facts, first: BS: President Obama said during the debate that, "The day after the [Libya] attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find...

    After embarrassing herself with her incompetently biased attempt to “fact check” GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the second presidential debate, CNN correspondent Candy Crowley has already began trying to save her shattered credibility. In a panel discussion afterward, a fast-talking Crowley tried to spin away her offensive conduct by admitting that Romney was indeed correct in casting blame on the Obama Administration for falsely blaming an anti-Islamic video for attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. “It was one of those moments, and I could even feel that here, you know, when you say something you’re not expecting,”...

    We can now fairly assume that both Democrat and Republican analysts concluded that President Obama's weak performance in the first presidential debate could be attributed to the absence of a teleprompter. The president's reputation -- earned or unearned -- as a golden orator cannot be upheld without this prop. So, to level the playing field -- as he is fond of saying -- he was provided with a flesh and blood teleprompter in the shape of Candy Crowley for the second debate. It was a Catch 22. If Mitt Romney had pointedly objected to this glaring intervention he would have...
  • Candy Crowley: Romney Right That Obama Didnt Call Libya Terror, thought He Picked Wrong Word

    CNN anchor and debate moderator Candy Crowley joined CNNs panel after the debate to discuss a moment where she corrected Mitt Romney after he claimed that President Barack Obama had refused to characterize the attack in Libya an act of terror for 14 days. Crowley said that Romneys was right in that the Obama administration spent weeks refusing to say that the attack was terrorism, but she thought at the time that he picked the wrong word. I heard the president speak at the time. I, sort of, reread a lot of stuff about Libya because I knew wed probably...

    Rose Garden 10:43 A.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger. Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the...

    I want to preface by saying I am voting for Mitt Romney and I thought the debate moderated by Candy Crowley was horrendously bad. I think she was even worst than Martha Raddatz, if that was possible. But one statement Romney said that bothered me during the debate. A feminazi asked a loaded question about how men make more than women (a falsehood for the most part). Gov. Romney said that when he first became Governor, he looked at a stack of potential cabinet members and complained that they were all men. He then directed his chief of staff to...

    Watching it unfold on live TV it did not seem right. It was awkwardly and comfortably scripted, and too smooth in execution. But watching it on replay the agenda filled manipulation was obvious. It appears Candy Crowley and CNN together with the Obama Administration scripted the Libyan injection into the Presidential Debate.Im not just talking about Candy Crowley interjecting on behalf of President Obama, and interrupting Mitt Romney, I mean the whole segment was a set up. So we did a little research: Candy Crowley told Erin Burnett on CNNs show Out Front, Monday Night 10/15, that she had collected...

    Mitt Romney was right. Barack Obama was wrong. And now, after journo-tool/moderator Candy Crowley jumped to Obamas aid in front of millions of viewers, CNN is admitting that her fact-check was not kinda, sorta, no completely cut and dry factual. READ: CNN walks back false act of terror fact check. Hows that crow tasting, lapdogs?

    In the baseball playoffs, the tie goes to the runner. In debates, ties are decided by the moderator and thats what happened during the Tuesday night presidential debate at Hofstra University in New York. CNNs Candy Crowley made her presence felt as a moderator in a major way on two points, but none larger than the issue of Libya. The terrorist attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and four others in Benghazi has become a sore point for Obama, but Crowley made sure she called Romney out before Obama could tag him. When Romney said Obama had not called...
