  • Whoa: Massachusetts Newspaper Drags Warren Through The Wringer For Attacking Law Enforcement

    The Boston Herald on Friday penned an editorial blasting Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) for her repeated attacks on law enforcement. The editorial board recounted numerous instances Sen. Warren went after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and police officers for enforcing our rule of law. Specifically, the Herald cited an incident that took place in Boston: Last year it was ICE she targeted for expulsion, saying that it should be replaced with “something that reflects our morality.” She bellowed to a boisterous Boston City Hall Plaza crowd that, “This is about children held in cages. This is about babies scattered all across this country.”That...
  • If China crushes Hong Kong, is Taiwan next?

    The Hill ^ | 8/12/19 | Dov S. Zakheim
    At the most recent meeting of the Aspen Strategy Group — which includes current and former senators, former senior officials, retired military, leading academics and analysts — a number of the participants expressed considerable doubt about whether the United States could defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack, or even whether it would attempt to do so. Behind the concerns voiced at Aspen, Colo., was the shadow of a potentially brutal Chinese paramilitary operation to crush the dissenters in Hong Kong. The fear was that once Beijing’s “one country, two systems” policy toward Hong Kong was terminated, Taiwan...

    See also: In defense of Fox NewsThe continued listing to port of Fox News, which rose to prominence precisely because it cut through the politically correct swamp fog that passed as media news just as Donald Trump sliced through the swamp itself on his way to the White House, was on full display on Fox News Sunday when host Chris Wallace joined Democrats whose latest charge of Trump racism occurred when Trump reminded Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings that conditions in his rat-infested congressional district were worse than conditions in ICE detention centers on our porous southern border with Mexico. Chris...
  • They Missed The Mark: Baltimore Sun Pens Catty Editorial About Trump's Take On The City

    Townhall ^ | 07/28/2019 | Beth Baumann
    The Baltimore Sun penned a scathing editorial following President Donald Trump's claims that Baltimore "is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." According to Trump, if Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) spent more time in his district, it would no longer be a "dangerous and filthy place."According to the Sun, Trump's comments were geared towards Cummings because he's "been a thorn in the president's side."From the editorial: It’s not hard to see what’s going on here. The congressman has been a thorn in this president’s side, and Mr. Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the...
  • The DeSantis record: Bold promises clash with cold reality [Whiny Media!]

    Shun Sin Ten All of Fort Lauderdale ^ | 7/14/19 | fake news.editors
    Ron DeSantis kept his word: He’s the boldest Florida governor since Jeb Bush two decades ago. That’s why we’re so worried. After six months in office, he has lived up to the rhetoric of his Jan. 8 inaugural address: “I will lead with purpose and conviction.” But lead how? If the 2018 election proved anything, it’s that Florida is more closely divided than ever, and that should translate into a nonpartisan style of governing to lessen the extreme polarization in this deep purple state. It means honoring the public will, respecting all sides and protecting Florida’s fragile environment all the...

    A bipartisan deal to bring millions of immigrants out of the shadows, and pay for a secure border. Americans are frustrated by the inaction of their federal government on comprehensive immigration reform and border security. So are we. We both represent districts on Long Island, and we have both worked on immigration-related issues for over 25 years — one of us, Representative Suozzi, from the perspective of immigrant’s rights as a mayor, as a county executive and now as a member of Congress; the other, Representative King, from the perspective of border security as a former county comptroller, and now...

    The New York Times ^ | 01 Feb 2019 | Matthew Glassman
    G.O.P. congressional leaders used tactics to minimize the president’s influence and maximize their own control over public policy. Donald Trump has a Congress problem. He can’t get Republicans to promote his policies. And when he forces the issue — as with his border wall — he can’t win their support.But most Americans don’t know that. After all, Republican legislators voted with the president well over 90 percent of the time during the 115th Congress. Record numbers of appellate judges were confirmed, and the president signed major tax legislation. Many observers have concluded that Mr. Trump dominates the Republican Party, and...

    We’re getting close to the end now. Can you feel it? I do. It’s in the news, on the streets, and in your face every day. You can’t tune it out anymore, even if you wanted to. Where once there was civil debate in the court of public opinion, we now have censorship, monopoly, screaming, insults, demonization, and, finally, the use of force to silence the opposition. There is no turning back now. The political extremes are going to war, and you will be dragged into it even if you consider yourself apolitical. There are great pivot points in history,...

    So, Brett Kavanaugh is our next Supreme Court justice. It's all over now. What have we learned from the events of the past month? Speaking only for myself, this debacle has done nothing to change my mind about our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media and the Democratic Party. (And yes, I realize those two things are the same thing.) Here are just a few of my biases that have been confirmed by this whole mess. If you don't know, now ya know: 1. Most of the media is actively working for the Democrats If I had any...

While there are untold numbers of Barack Obama holdovers surrounding the Trump administration eagerly waiting to plunge a knife into the president’s back, the...

    Self | September 6, 2018 | PJ-Comix
    One thing that sticks out to me reading the anonymous editorial in the New York Times is that it doesn't sound like a government official wrote it. The big "tell" is the use of the term "senior officials" in one form or similar at three points in the body of the editorial. Do regular people write like that? Not really but you know who does? Reporters. Think about it. How often do you see reporters using the term "senior officials" when writing on background? It is fairly frequent. In contrast how often do high level officials in the government refer...

    Some people are very angry about President Trump's new Supreme Court pick. "Hell no, Kavanaugh! He is a dangerous man!" protesters shouted on the steps of the Supreme Court. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand yelled, "What is at stake is freedom for LGBTQ Americans, for equal rights, civil rights..." "They are freaking out because they don't understand," Ilya Shapiro, editor of the Cato Institute's Supreme Court Review, tells me. "Those top areas, abortion or gay rights or Citizens United, there's really not going to be a change." Every time one party appoints a judge, the other party acts as if the appointment...

    More than 300 news outlets have launched a campaign to counter US President Donald Trump's attacks and promote a free press. The Boston Globe made the call last week for a nationwide denouncement of the president's "dirty war" against the media, using the hashtag #EnemyOfNone. Mr Trump has derided media reports as "fake news" and attacked journalists as "enemies of the people". And he tweeted on Thursday: "The fake news media is the opposition party." "It is very bad for our great country... But we are winning!" https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1030074380397752320 UN experts have warned that Mr Trump's comments about the media raise...

    More than 300 news publications across the country are joining together to defend the role of a free press and denounce President Trump's ongoing attacks on the news media in coordinated editorials publishing Thursday, according a tally by The Boston Globe. The project was spearheaded by editorial staff at the Globe, who write, "This relentless assault on the free press has dangerous consequences. We asked editorial boards from around the country – liberal and conservative, large and small – to join us today to address this fundamental threat in their own words." Editorials are typically written by opinion writers and...

    Later they kissed and made up. But before that, at that NATO summit in Brussels, President Trump let them know who’s boss. No more rolling over…and while he was respectful to the Queen, and contrary to the habits of his predecessor, he did not bow. He focused on Angela Merkel, since she represents them all. He schooled her for double-dealing – that pipeline to Russia that puts Germany at the mercy of Putin who can turn off the energy spigot any time he wants, and then who ya gonna call? The United States, of course, which will have to come...

    Americans should have the courage to ignore their written laws, to amnesty DACA illegals and accept an open-borders world, says an op-ed by two wealthy CEOs who stand to gain more wealth in a labor market flooded by low-wage migrants. The op-ed by Tim Cook (CEO of Apple, wealth $800 million and growing) and Charles Koch (Koch Industries, $49 billion and growing) was posted in the Washington Post newspaper owned by Jeff Bezos (owner of Amazon, $98 billion and growing). Under the headline “Congress must act on the ‘dreamers,’” it declared: We must do better. The United States is at...

    The Washington Post has done a surprising service by inadvertently revealing the damage having an abortion did to a woman who chose it. Grace, profiled in the story, “The long five minutes: Abortion doulas bring comfort during a complicated time” is not just a doula, but also an abortion survivor. As such she has my compassion and understanding. #Metoo. It took me decades to work through the grief and guilt of child loss through abortion. My pain was complicated greatly by being told it was not, in fact, a child by the people who sold that abortion to me. Can...

    Declaring that “the final word has been spoken as far as I am concerned,” President Reagan defended his planned visit Sunday to the German military cemetery at Bitburg, telling foreign reporters yesterday that “I think it is morally right to do what I am doing and I am not going to change my mind about that.” Vice President George Bush, meanwhile, who has refrained from public statements on the Bitburg controversy, told a United States Chamber of Commerce meeting in Washington yesterday that “Ronald Reagan has not changed on his abhorrence of the Holocaust — he never will. But the...

    Military action against North Korea is not an easy question to answer. If the blow is light, Pyongyang's military power would remain intact, and South Koreans could potentially face a revenge attack of some kind. One can only hope that Washington reaches out to Seoul for a second opinion. If the blow is heavy, the Chinese people will not allow their government to remain passive when the armies of the US and South Korea start a war and try to take down the Pyongyang regime. The Chinese will not let something like that happen, especially on the same land where...

    Remember Afghanistan? The longest war in American history? Ever? When it comes to wars, we Americans have a selective memory. The Afghan war, dating from October 2001, has earned the distinction of having been forgotten while still underway. President Trump’s Inaugural Address included no mention of Afghanistan. Nor did his remarks last month at a joint session of Congress. For the new commander in chief, the war there qualifies at best as an afterthought — assuming, that is, he has thought about it all. A similar attitude prevails on Capitol Hill. Congressional oversight has become pro forma. Last week Gen....
