  • 2017 Might Have Been Worst Year in U.S. History for Media Bias

    A cornerstone of a truly free society is the presence of a vigilant news media, one that is willing to hold powerful government officials accountable when they abuse their offices for their own personal gain or the advancement of corrupt special interests. A sign a society is on the path to tyranny is when the overwhelming majority of a nation’s journalists are committed to doing whatever they can to destroy one political group while they work feverishly to cover up the scandals of another.Which of these two scenarios sounds more like America today?To say that there is a conspiracy to...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Yesterday’s Campaign Update told you that shutting down the government would be the best outcome for the Republicans. Lo and behold, we have our government shutdown, as the Republicans completely out-maneuvered the Democrats on one of these things for like the first time ever. They have President Trump and Chuck Schumer, who completely over-played a terribly weak hand to thank for that. With polls showing that 70% or more of the public wanting to do “something” to “protect” the poor DACA “kids” – many of...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – The New York Times released a poll on Thursday showing Americans’ support for the recently-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is soaring upwards as people wake up to the fact that they’ve been lied to about its impacts by the Democrats and their agents in the fake news media. This comes before the new tax withholding tables begin to result in higher paychecks for working folks. Just wait until that kicks in. This is all very predictable. - Tired of all this...

  • Low Trump Approvals Directly Attributable To Media Coverage

    01/17/2018 2:18:45 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 18 replies
    Relentlessly negative media coverage continues to keep President Trump’s approval ratings at historic lows. This should not be surprising. But now it is virtually provable by connecting the dots on three pieces of data. First off, it’s necessary to understand that any polls conducted on an issue recently in the news are a complete and direct reflection of the media coverage. So, for instance, when the tax reform proposal was announced, it was covered in normally negative fashion, focusing on the “losers” and on the impact the deficit. Within days, polls of Americans were taken on their view of the...

    "It's pretty embarrassing when you have to take your children out of the room to report the news," Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, whined Monday. Mr. Graham, longtime pal of Sen. John McCain, was complaining about President Trump's alleged use of the word "s–hole" to describe Haiti and some other nations in Africa and Latin America in a meeting Thursday. Both Mr. Trump and the White House said he didn't say the word, but the media and liberals (along with "Republicans In Name Only" like Mr. Graham) had already gotten their undies in a wad.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - The Democrat/fake news media effort to paint President Donald Trump as a racist became the theater of the absurd on Tuesday, thanks to the histrionics of Cory Booker and the lack of self-awareness of Rep. Luis Gutierrez. - In ranting against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during a hearing, the execrable Sen. Booker used language and bullying gestures that would have made any Republican a target of the #Metoo movement. He gets a pass from the fake news media because he’s a Democrat targeting a Republican woman – who we all...

    Recently a Senator, whom many refer to by his nickname Dirty Durbin, said that President Trump referred to certain countries with a less-than-rosy word while objecting to the Temporary Protected Status of immigrants from those countries. President Trump reportedly also noted that increasing immigration from countries of European heritage, like Norway, which has been a source of productive immigrants to North America for over 1100 years, would be good. While President Trump was referring to the way that TPS countries are managed, and not impugning rank-and-file citizens of good character in those countries, the matter does raise two questions. The...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - What is wrong with voters in Arizona? In all seriousness, how does a single state end up electing the likes of John McCain and Jeff Flake to be its senators? Of course, McCain won re-election yet again in 2016 just based on his name, but there is literally no excuse for Jeff Flake, who is blessedly reaching the end of his first – and only – senatorial term. - To Arizona citizens’ credit, Flake’s approval rating in his home state has hovered in the teens over the last year as he...

    Social Science Research Network ^ | January 14, 2018 | John R Lott Jr
    Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. These data do not rely on self-reporting by criminals. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans. They also tend to commit more serious crimes and serve 10.5% longer sentences, more likely to be classified as dangerous, and 45% more likely to be gang members than U.S. citizens. Yet, there are several reasons that these numbers...

    Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections. If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - For about half an hour on Saturday, the people in Hawaii thought their state was under nuclear attack. Isn’t that lovely. What turned out to be a false message was sent out by the Hawaii Emergency Alert Agency (HEAA) because “someone pushed the wrong button,”, according to the Agency’s head, Vern Miyagi. That’s a hell of a wrong button to push, Vern. - So for 30 minutes everyone in the Islands panicked, for good reason. People were screaming, crying, shoving babies into storm drains, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    Media was set ablaze Thursday after President Trump reportedly responded to the ‘gang of 6’ immigration proposal with some fiery language. “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” Tweeted Trump.

    it racist to say that you would prefer immigrants coming to the U.S. who are well-educated, skilled, and high-income earners? Or would you want poorly-educated, unskilled people? Is it racist for countries such as Canada and Australia to rank immigrants on a point system based on these qualities? President Trump supposedly called Haiti and African nations “shithole countries” and said, “We should have more people from Norway.” Trump denies using that language, while Republican senators say that “do not recall” him saying it. To Trevor Noah, it was a clear case of racism. “But you know what part put it...
