  • Neil Gorsuch doesn’t seem to care much about impartiality after all

    Washington Post ^ | August 21, 2017 | By Elizabeth Wydra
    At his Supreme Court confirmation hearings in March, then-Judge Neil M. Gorsuch spoke to Sen. Richard Blumenthal with grave sincerity, saying, “Senator, the independence and integrity of the judiciary is in my bones.” To Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, he promised: “I do take seriously impartiality and the appearance of impartiality.” As the saying goes, however, actions speak louder than words. Now that Gorsuch has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, his actions are beginning to bring his commitment to integrity and impartiality into sharper focus: It was recently revealed that the justice has agreed to speak to a conservative group at...
  • Paul Ryan is trying to be the leader Donald Trump refuses to be (CNN )

    CNN ^ | Aug. 21, 2017 | Chris Cillizza,
    If Donald Trump won't lead, I will. That's the message House Speaker Paul Ryan appears to be sending with a new statement -- released via his Facebook page Monday -- on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and President Trump's remarkable "both sides" comments in its wake. Headlined "Let There Be No Confusion," Ryan writes on Facebook: "I still firmly believe this hate exists only on the fringes. But so long as it exists, we need to talk about it. We need to call it what it is. And so long as it is weaponized for fear and terror, we need...

    President Donald Trump took in the solar eclipse from the Truman Balcony of the White House on Monday, even briefly glancing at the sun directly despite a shouted warning from an aide. Sporting eclipse glasses — for only part of the viewing — and standing alongside Melania Trump and their son, Barron, Trump viewed what was a partial eclipse in Washington, DC. It began at 1:17 p.m. ET, peaked at 2:42 p.m., and was set to end at 4:01 p.m., The Washington Post reported. The moon covered 81% of the sun at the eclipse's peak in Washington.

    CBS News ^ | August 21, 2017
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that he doesn't believe that most news is "fake news," a view that President Trump often tweets about. "My view is that most news is not fake, but I do try to look at a variety of sources," McConnell said at a Chamber of Commerce event in Louisville, Kentucky. He was appearing with Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin to talk about overhauling the nation's tax code, a top White House and Senate priority. President Trump has tweeted about "fake news" over 100 times since January, according to the Trump Twitter Archive.

    MSNBC host and political analyst Joy Ann Reid is now spreading unverified internet rumors that fit her worldview. Reid, who has a history of spreading misinformation, garnered thousands of retweets on Sunday by amplifying an unproven rumor that President Trump’s re-election campaign is hiring minority actors for Trump’s political rally in Phoenix on Tuesday. Reid followed up with an “update” noting that the link had been deleted. A left-wing activist was the first to claim that the Trump campaign is hiring minority actors for the campaign rally. The only basis for his claim was a since-deleted Craigslist advertisement soliciting actors....

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon celebrated Chief of Staff John Kelly’s ability to prevent Ivanka Trump from influencing her father through unscheduled emotion-laden visits to the oval office. “Those days are over when Ivanka can run in and lay her head on the [president’s] desk and cry,” Bannon told multiple people, according to The New York Times.

    Breitbart ^ | 8/20/2017 | Charlie Spiering
    A Daily Mail report cites sources giving Ivanka Trump credit for forcing Steve Bannon out of the White House. The article references “Washington sources” that Trump’s daughter Ivanka pushed out Bannon because of his “far-right views” clashing with her Jewish faith. Bannon’s departure, the Daily Mail reports, was “done to save the Presidency,” according to a source close to Ivanka Trump, claiming that Bannon leaving “changes everything” with the Trump presidency. But according to a report from Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, Bannon had not “meaningfully advised the president about his response to Charlottesville,” although the pair spoke on the phone...

    Conservative Review ^ | 08/19/2017 | Jordan Schachtel
    CNN has published a list of “hate groups” currently operating in the United States, relying on an extremely partisan analysis from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Several truly extremist groups populate the list, such as the Ku Klux Klan, New Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and others. But along with the neo-Nazi and Islamic extremist groups on the list, the SPLC has lumped in as “hate groups” mainstream, well-known conservative individuals and organizations who merely speak out about the threat of radical Islam. Here are some that were included on the list. On the “hate group” list David...

    New York Times reporters Thomas Fuller, Alan Feuer and Serge Kovaleski are responsible for this admiring profile of the far-left Brownshirts called antifa: “‘Antifa’ members are ready to literally fight right-wingers.” "Members of antifa have shown no qualms about using their fists, sticks or canisters of pepper spray to meet an array of right-wing antagonists whom they call a fascist threat to U.S. democracy." Is antifa violent? Well, that depends on what the meaning of “violent” is: “You need violence in order to protect nonviolence,” she said. “That’s what’s very obviously necessary right now.” *** “When you look at this...
  • Boston Free Speech Rally Falsely Branded As ‘White Supremacist’

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/20/2017 | Scott Greer
    Thousands of people protested against an alleged “white supremacist” rally in Boston on Saturday. Multiple outlets, journalists, politicians and other public figures declared that the event that drew an estimated 40,000 people to protest against was racist in nature. ThinkProgress covered the rally with this headline, “White supremacist rally fizzles, overtaken by massive anti-racism march.” The story mocked the idea that it was a “free speech” rally, stated that there it would draw “attendees from the same white supremacist groups that marched on Charlottesville last weekend,” and that some Klansmen had announced they would attend the rally. In a viral...

    WASHINGTON — One lazy, sultry afternoon in 1947, two years after America helped trounce the Nazis, my father arrived at our family’s modest summer house on the Severn River near the Naval Academy. He had come from his job as a police detective in D.C., still wearing his suit and his service revolver. “Get your shoes on and come with me,” he told my 10-year-old brother, Martin, his Irish lilt edged with a steel that caused his son to scramble. “I have something to do and I want you to see it.” The town, Herald Harbor, Md., had its share...

    Taxpayer-funded PBS and NPR are now in the polling business with Marist College, and like the other networks, their polls are often used to support putting heat on Republicans. On Wednesday, they announced they had found a majority of Americans were disappointed with the president’s responsive to the violence in Charlottesville. PBS then ignored their own finding that 62 percent favored leaving Confederate statues in place, while only 27 percent want them removed. NPR reported it once, and then insisted that had nothing to do with Charlottesville. Buried in the weeds: They also asked if Americans approve or disapprove of...

    Some 1,000 people on Saturday joined the Afghan youths who are holding a sit-down protest in Stockholm against Sweden’s deportations to Afghanistan. Participants in the Saturday demonstration formed a human chain in front of the youths in the Medborgarplatsen square in Stockholm, holding up white sheets of paper with red hearts on. The lone refugee youths have now been protesting for nearly two weeks, demanding Sweden stop deportations to Afghanistan. In an open letter to the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) Director-General Mikael Ribbenvik they ask: “Is Sweden really a moral country when you say to Swedes not to travel to...

    With Hillary Clinton making the news again, with claims that she is thinking of becoming a preacher following her 2016 election defeat, it should remind Americans of one scandal that has not been resolved since the 2016 election: the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation. During the 2016 election, the Clinton Foundation was the target of the Right due to lack of transparency and accusations that it was a charity bank for the Clinton family. Some of the more notable news about the foundation was that Clinton Foundation staffers linked donors to then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton, a Clinton Foundation...

    President Trump, in part, was right. There is blame to go around for the unrest in Charlottesville. There is fear, intolerance, demonization and growing hatred on both the extreme left and the extreme right. But despite what Trump has claimed, repeatedly, in his public statements since the tragic events there, the willingness to employ organized violence to achieve political goals remains a signature quality of only one side. And it’s not the left. Extremism on the left is real. It can be seen in attempts to stifle the free speech of conservative speakers on university campuses (as at Middlebury and...
