  • A new blow to Iran's forgotten Jews

    Isn’t there something incongruous about a human rights organization providing a platform to a journalist who has whitewashed human rights abuses? Next week, an online event organized by the human rights group “3 Generations” will feature New York Times op-ed columnist Roger Cohen, who sparked an international furor in 2009 when he visited Iran and announced that the oppressed Jews there were not really so oppressed, after all. Cohen’s assertion that Iranian Jews were “living, working and worshiping in relative tranquility” was met with scorn across the political spectrum. Jeffrey Goldberg, in The Atlantic, called him “credulous.” The Anti-Defamation League...

    President Trump says the angriest he's been during his reelection bid was when The Atlantic reported that he had called American military members who died at war "losers" and "suckers." "It's a totally made-up story," Trump said on Fox Business' "Mornings with Maria." on Thursday. "They don't even have any witnesses, they made it up. And that's why they're lowlifes, because they made it up and went with a story. They know it wasn't true but they use it all the time." The story, published in early September and citing multiple anonymous sources, alleges that the president also made disparaging...
  • Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg Asks Alexander Vindman If Trump is Russian ‘Asset’

    The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg scored the first post-impeachment interview with Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman on Monday and asked what he described as the “key question”: “Does he believe that Trump is an asset of Russian intelligence?” Vindman’s answer largely regurgitates left-wing conspiracy theories about Russian influence (original emphasis):

    American Thinker ^ | 9/12/2020 | Pater Barry Chowka
    Yesterday, Jeffrey Goldberg, the infamous editor of The Atlantic, whose latest fake news article one week ago alleged that President Trump had cruelly disparaged members of the U.S. military, sent an email announcing the lineup of speakers for this year's annual Atlantic Festival of esteemed progressive thought leaders. The two top highlighted speakers at the event, which this year will be streamed virtually online and free to access, are Hillary Clinton and Dr. Anthony Fauci. Also on the bill are Nancy Pelosi; Stacey Abrams; Bill Gates; and the Marxist co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Alicia Garza. Another speaker is Chesa...
  • Trump Deserves Higher Honor Than Nobel Prize

    09/13/2020 5:20:20 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | September 13, 2020 | Jeff Crouere
    For over one hundred years, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded. In that time, this honor has been viewed as the ultimate prize for any political leader. Recipients are supposed to be great diplomats who have brokered historic peace agreements. In contrast, the recipients are often left-wing politicians who have a suitable political agenda for the five-person Nobel Peace Prize committee. Despite their efforts to end the plague of communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, neither Pope John Paul II nor Ronald Reagan received the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, it was awarded to Mikhail Gorbachev, a communist...
  • The Atlantic calls to 'end the Nobel Peace Prize' following Trump nominations (the Atlantic)

    Fox News ^ | September 11 2020 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    The Atlantic magazine raised eyebrows on Friday when it published a piece calling for the abolition of the Nobel Peace Prize after President Trump was nominated for the prestigious honor. The president's name was submitted for the 2021 prize by Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde, who cited Trump's role in brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Trump has since earned a second nomination from Swedish lawmaker Magnus Jacobsson for overseeing an economic deal between Kosovo and Serbia. The nominations, however, apparently didn't sit well with the liberal magazine, which declared Friday that "peace had its...
  • Jeffrey Goldberg Shudders That Trump’s Actions 'Create a Sense of Horror'—But He Praised Fidel Castro as 'The Great Man'

    “Horror is the right word…among people in the national security complex there is a sense of horror about the way he (President Trump) acts, behaves and talks. So I fully expect much more reporting to come out on this.” (Jeffrey Goldberg, CNN, September 6.)  “I was also anxious to meet the great man…a close reading of the human rights literature suggests to me that the leadership of Cuba is not morally comparable to the leadership of Zimbabwe, Burma, Iran, Syria, Libya, North Korea, Eritrea, Venezuela….I judge his (Fidel Castro’s) revolution against what it replaced, namely, the thugocracy of Batista, who...
  • Trump Approval Rating Rises Despite Controversial Atlantic Article, Poll Shows

    President Donald Trump's approval rating does not appear to have been impacted by controversy in the wake of a recent Atlantic article claiming he had repeatedly made disparaging remarks about U.S. military members. Trump's job approval rating hit 47 percent in a Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday, his highest rating in the poll since June. The poll was conducted online among 2,832 registered voters from September 5 to 8. It has a margin of error of 1.84 percent. Republicans approved of Trump by an 81 percent majority, while 19 percent disapproved. Democrats had nearly opposite ratings, with 82 percent disapproving and...

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | Sep 10, 2020 | Michael Anton
    Why The Atlantic’s smear of the president as disrespectful of fallen soldiers does not hold up. I had never met Donald Trump when I began serving in his White House. I took the job expecting that I would never meet him. My (former) role—head of communications at the National Security Council—is not one whose occupant traditionally interacts with the president all that much (my immediate predecessor notwithstanding). The NSC comms director’s “principal,” as we say in the flak trade, is the national security advisor, not the president. The president has higher-ranking aides to look after his interests. Plus, the top...

    The Federalist ^ | 09/09/2020 | By Christopher Bedford
    Vice President Joe Biden once again dodged questions from the press Sunday, walking from Mass to his motorcade while a pool reporter yelled “Mr. Vice President, come back to us!”Biden dodging media interactions is not surprising, even if it is very strange for a modern political campaign. What is unusual are some of the people who are defending his dodging of reporters and difficult questions, among them The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, who claimed Biden was visiting his son’s grave and shamed the President Donald Trump’s campaign for criticizing Biden. Worse still than flacking for Biden when he is supposed...

    The Atlantic dropped a bombshell, shocking, game-changing, disqualifying, walls-are-closing-in, Trump should be forced to resign story yesterday, and most Americans either rolled their eyes or yawned. Matt Vespa has the details on the completely anonymously sourced tale.In short: When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he...
  • The Hyperbolic, Hyperpartisan Atlantic Magazine

    The Atlantic launched a fall-campaign fusillade with anonymous sources claiming President Donald Trump callously trashed America's war dead as "losers" and "suckers," and it is being celebrated by the pro-Biden news media. The Atlantic is "respected" and "venerable" and "at the zenith of its influence." Editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg lauded his magazine bosses as "excellent owners who value editorial independence and integrity." That's ridiculous. After the article came out, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden held a press briefing and called first on Edward-Isaac Dovere of The Atlantic. Dovere said, "(I)n a call convened by your campaign, Khizr Khan" -- a Biden...

    Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, admitted that a key detail of his article about Trump could be wrong during an interview with CNN on Sunday. “When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed the rain for the last-minute decision, saying ‘the helicopter couldn’t fly’ and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true,” Goldberg wrote in his piece published last week. According to Goldberg, President Trump was overheard saying he wanted to cancel the trip to the cemetery because “it’s filled with losers.”At least...

    ABC News’ “The View” returned from summer hiatus to kick off its 24th season on Tuesday and it didn’t take long for co-host Meghan McCain to declare she believes an anonymous report that President Trump mocked fallen American troops – but said The Atlantic should have warned her family the story was coming out. Co-hosts McCain, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin kicked off the show by welcoming former co-host Sara Haines back as a regular before quickly jumping into politics. McCain noted that it’s been interesting to see Trump shift his focus to “law and order” during the...
