    How does a liberal know that her open-borders arguments are a bust? When even David Frum — David Frum! — has to step in. On the Monday edition Ari Melber's MSNBC show The Beat, New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay made a two-pronged argument in favor of allowing countless Central Americans to enter the US: One, violence is rampant in those countries; and two, in any case, people should be admitted who are fleeing "domestic violence."Frum eviscerated both arguments. First, he pointed out that — contrary to Gay's claim of unchecked violence — the homicide rate in Central...

    Trump directed his attorney general to declassify documents in an effort to depict Donald Trump’s campaign as a victim of improper surveillance in 2016. Trump tweeted that the attorney general “requested” these powers. That may even be true. But Trump has been demanding such an investigation of U.S. intelligence agencies since long before Barr got the top law-enforcement job. Barr is compliant and complicit, but the idea is all Trump’s. The declassification process will be selective, of course, in service to a predetermined narrative. ... Who will trust or credit in any way the integrity of a Barr-led investigation? The...

    In the April print edition of The Atlantic, David Frum has an article about immigration. His basic take is simple: because progressives have gone crazy and stopped exercising responsible management of immigration, fascists (his word, not mine) have taken over.The solution, Frum suggests, is to cut immigration by even more than the Trump administration suggests. We can reasonably debate the correct amount of immigration. Americans are about evenly divided between people who want more, less, or about current levels of immigration, so I wonÂ’t try to solve that debate here. ItÂ’s far from clear how Frum thinks his argument...

    Now Congress faces a very hard question: Subpoena President Donald Trump’s translator, or not? On Saturday, The Washington Post’s Greg Miller reported new details of the extreme things done by Trump to conceal his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin from even the senior-most members of Trump’s own administration. Trump even reportedly seized the interpreter’s notes after one of his meetings, the Trump-Putin sit-down at the Hamburg G20 meeting in July 2017. Even more disturbingly, Trump and Putin met privately a second time at Hamburg—with no American present. In an act of astonishing recklessness, Trump relied entirely on the Russian...

    The White House and President Trump took some heat on Saturday after it was announced that he would not make a previously scheduled visit to a cemetery in France for Americans killed in World War I due to inclement weather. Trump arrived in France on Friday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, along with first lady Melania Trump. They'd planned to visit Ainse-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, France. The president was expected to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence. The first couple was supposed to travel to the site via helicopter,...

    If Trump’s opponents stand opposed to policing America’s boundaries, they will not help immigrants—they will only lose votes. DAVID FRUM 10:32 AM ET [Cut] For Trump’s opponents, the caravan represents a trap. Has Trump’s radical nativism so counter-radicalized them that they have internalized the caravan message against any border enforcement at all? If yes, they will not help immigrants. They will only marginalize themselves—and American politics will follow the European path in which anti-immigration parties of the extreme right cannibalize the political center. If liberals insist that only fascists will defend borders, then voters will hire fascists to do the...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real affliction that plagues many in the liberal media and many in the anti-Trump crowd. During an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, David Frum, a faux Republican and editor for the left-leaning Atlantic, showed off how advanced his TDS was when he decried President Trump ahead of the historic North Korea summit as a cruel “punishment” against the American people for being irresponsible and hating the news media. CNN host Brian Stelter originally asked Frum to comment on President Trump’s criticism of CNN while at the press conference at the G7 summit...

    Exclusive – Melania Trump Spox: David Frum ‘Disgusting’ for Insinuating Domestic Abuse in White House(FULL TITLE) First Lady Melania Trump’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham condemned a “disgusting” Monday tweet from Atlantic Senior Editor David Frum containing a hypothetical situation with President Donald Trump hitting his wife. Frum went after President Trump, his personal attorney Jay Sekulow, and now former Trump attorney John Dowd in a tweet that asked whether Trump would be obstructing justice if he punched the First Lady and ordered the Secret Service to cover up the assault. “Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White...

    A Rolling Stone writer speculated on Twitter that First Lady Melania Trump could be the victim of spousal abuse by President Donald Trump, hence her recent public absence. Melania Trump has not made a public appearance since a five-day hospital stay in mid-May following surgery for a kidney condition. She will not travel with the president for the G7 summit in Quebec this week, and there are also no plans for her to join him in Singapore for his June 12 meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10,...

So let’s go back and let us relive that moment on Friday when we learned that CNN was reporting that the Trump administration had been offered WikiLeaks data about 10 days before it was posted on WikiLeaks. CNN claimed to have an exclusive, and they reported it breathlessly, and...

    David Frum, former President George W. Bush speechwriter, appeared on CNN's Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter today to discuss media in the age of Trump.The current Atlantic senior editor started off his monologue by making the following claim.  “The mistakes are precisely the reason people should trust the media. Astronomers make mistakes all the time because science is a process of discovery of truth. Astrologers never make mistakes or at least they never own up to them because what they are offering is a closed system of ideology and propaganda," Frum told Stelter.  On the surface, this sounds accurate. Astronomers...
  • Hah! Democrat and Liberal Media’s Latest Motto: We Lost But We’re Really Winning

    12/10/2017 9:03:34 AM PST · by davikkm · 16 replies
    Democrats and the liberal media have already conceded Alabama to Judge Roy Moore. After hurling every smear and vicious attack EVER at the Alabama Judge they see they are still going to lose. Alabama voters DON’T TRUST DEMOCRATS OR THEIR LIBERAL MEDIA! Why should they? When was the last time the Washington Post or ANY liberal media outlet published a positive piece on Alabama? 30 years ago? 50 years ago? Judge Roy Moore pulled ahead of his very liberal opponent Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate special election. Moore now leads Jones 49-45 in the Real Clear Politics averages.

On Brian Stelter’s CNN show this morning, during a discussion of the spate of MSM misreporting of stories in a way unfavorable to President Trump, guest David Frum actually said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Tuesday's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, frequent MSNBC Republican guest David Frum lamented over the trend towards loosening gun laws -- even after high-profile mass shootings -- and then predicted that it would be necessary to convince gun owners that "you're a bad parent if you have a gun in the house" to get the public to support more gun restrictions. After Frum had spent time lamenting that since the Newtown school shootings in 2012, there have been a loosening of gun laws in many states, host O'Donnell followed up by suggesting that most Americans agree with a...

    CBS’s Face the Nation led off 2017 with a political panel where everyone was completely disgusted by President-elect Trump. The two Bush White House veterans – speechwriters Michael Gerson and David Frum – talked in dark terms about an election stolen by Russia and a forthcoming “constitutional crisis.” On the Left were Jeffrey Goldberg, the Obama-polishing editor of The Atlantic magazine, and former NPR anchor Michele Norris, who left the taxpayer-funded network when her husband took a job in the Obama White House. Norris declared that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan clearly had a racial component, since America was...

    Five Questions About Russia's Election Hacking As the culpability of Putin’s government becomes more clear, a host of other issues remain unresolved. David Frum The evidence to support the CIA’s conclusion that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump remains mostly secret. But the outline of the case is no mystery. Both Democratic and Republican Party servers were reportedly hacked by foreign agents, yet the Moscow-friendly folks at Wikileaks somehow only obtained the contents of Democratic servers. Meanwhile, Donald Trump ran a campaign that sometimes seemed almost designed to please Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump lavishly praised...
