    On Friday night, a sheriff’s deputy in Texas was fatally shot at a gas station in would be described as “an unprovoked, execution-style killing of a police officer.” One day later, a 30-year-old man, identified as Shannon J. Miles, was charged with capital murder in the death of Darren Goforth, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. But what remained unclear Sunday was a motive for the shooting at a suburban Houston Chevron, which authorities say occurred when Goforth, 47, stopped to fill up his patrol car.

  • When Will ABC News Release the Full Vester Flanagan Manifesto?

    PJM ^ | August 28, 2015 | J. Christian Adams
    Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News. ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto. Yet we still haven’t seen the full document. ABC hasn’t made it available. Why? John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated. But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial...

    From Gabriel Sherman writing for New York Magazine: When it comes to dealing with rogue states, Fox News has a firm editorial philosophy: You don’t negotiate. Roger Ailes is learning that the same logic applies to a rogue candidate. ..... It’s now harder to see an end to the Trump-Fox war soon. As I reported this week, Trump’s poll numbers remain strong and he’s building a robust campaign operation, which is a threat to Ailes’s political project: “Roger says Trump is unelectable. His goal here is to save the country,” a source close to Ailes told me.

The Arabic immersion school opened yesterday for 132 pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. The protest group numbered about 30 people, at its height. They waved American and Israeli flags in solidarity of Western and Judeo-Christian values. Some had held two flags, others, held homemade protest signs that read: “Everything I ever cared to know about Islam was taught to me by Muslims on 9-11-2001,” “American Schools, American Kids,” and...

    In what’s unfortunately become commonplace, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC partnered with Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision to censor from their evening newscasts on Wednesday arguably the most disturbing video yet in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal that included a description of an abortion worker harvesting an aborted baby while their heart was still beating.While the networks have shown scant interest in the videos (with coverage only on the first, second, and fourth videos), the Fox News Channel’s Special Report has repeatedly covered them and did so again for this seventh video from the Center...

    When President Obama visited the African country of Kenya last month, left-wing CNN went full hagiography, going so far as to send shameless Obama-groupie, Brooke Baldwin, over with a pair of pom-poms and her own camera unit. In trying to make Obama look like a superhero, though, CNN finally went too far when it smeared an entire country. Now the pro-Obama network is groveling to contain the blowback. CNN, a cable news network already under scrutiny over charges of internal racism and its role in fomenting race riots, once again stepped on a rake, this time in a painfully obvious...

    To many, it seems contrary to intuition that Fox News could be one of the Clinton family’s largest donors for the better part of two decades. Check your intuition at the door- it’s true. According to Federal Election Commission and Center for Responsive Politics data, 21st Century Fox News Corp. has donated more than $3 million to Clinton family accounts. Overall, this lands Fox as the Clinton family’s 9th largest donor over the course of the family’s political involvement. (Table of Donors)

    The liberal mainstream media may have lost their monopoly, but they retain an oligopolistic control over the mindshare of the American public.

Mollie Hemingway reports in The Federalist: YouGov claims a recent poll shows that “After video releases, opinion of Planned Parenthood little changed.” Buried at the end of their press release, however, is...

Of course, most people have always suspected this was bullshit -- and you could see evidence of this in things like the fact that the big TV networks refused to cover the SOPA protests. But -- until now -- there's never necessarily been a smoking gun with evidence of how such business interests influences the editorial...

The conventional wisdom demands that Republicans devote themselves to denouncing Trump, but candidates are foolish to do this unless it serves some other purpose. Jeb has criticized him repeatedly, even after he said he was done with it. I don’t know why he really needs to get drawn into a war of words with Trump, but at least this accords with Jeb’s orientation toward...

    RUSH: As I knew we could, we've gone back to the archives, the Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites, and we have from 2007 the opening of the bit that parodies exactly what's happening in the Drive-By Media this moment, today and last night. This is on the Fox News Channel's 1/2 Hour News Hour. By the way, I starred in a number of episodes of this program, as president of the United States, as myself, it was a lot of fun. But, anyway, this is from the pilot episode, episode number one. It's 2007. FEMALE ANCHOR: Six men have just...

    SEGUN ODUOLOWU: [Jenner is] a 65-year-old rich white woman that decided to do this. But don’t tell me you’re walking the truth for other transgender kids, kids of color who don’t have the war chest of money to get the surgery, to look like she looks. they’re not going to get the cover of Vanity Fair. But don’t tell me that she is going to stand on the banks waving her hand as the beacon of comfort for transgender [people], when there’s a river of blood of the people that die...

    Frank Bruni, the spent New York Times op-ed columnist, doesn't care for GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker. That's his prerogative, of course, and it's a lock that he'll furrow his brow, like so many other liberals, and vote for Hillary Clinton in next year's election. (I'm discounting the euphoric "boom" for Bernie Sanders that's jazzing up "progressives" and amusing journalists this summer.) And there's no reason to expect that Bruni would write much positive about Walker: the Wisconsin governor is anti-union, anti-Obamacare, makes pitches to both mainstream and socially conservative Republicans and has a "newfound affection for ethanol" now that...

    Today President Obama met the White House press corps at length to defend his Iran nuclear deal. One could deconstruct his evasions line by line, but that would largely duplicate the content of many posts we have done over the past weeks and months. Instead, I want to focus on a few key issues. But first, this observation: if any of the reporters present had read the agreement, which is only 159 pages long, it was not apparent. Maybe reporters are not accustomed to reading legal documents; maybe they are too lazy to try; maybe they have read and understood...
  • CNN Blasts CBS News’s Major Garrett for Asking Obama Tough Question

    Breitbart ^ | July 15, 2015 | By John Nolte
    During Wednesday’s national press conference about his Iran deal, President Obama played the media like a fiddle. It was a situation where the media was so compliant the questioners were hand-picked by the White House beforehand, the president filibustered throughout, and Obama ended the event by asking himself the questions he wanted to answer. Only Major Garrett of CBS News asked a truly tough question, a question that was obviously framed in a way to cut through the president’s rigorously-rehearsed talking points. For daring to question the Lightbringer in the same way the media questioned President George W. Bush for...

    Barack Obama scolded a reporter at his Wednesday briefing after getting a critical question about the nuclear deal with Iran. CBS News's Major Garrett pressed the president on the imprisonment of Americans in Iran. "As you well know, there are four Americans in Iran—three held on trumped-up charges, according to your administration, one whereabouts unknown. Can you tell the country, sir, why you are content, with all the fanfare around this deal, to leave the conscience of this nation, this strength of this nation, unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?" Garrett asked. "I've gotta give you credit, Major,...

    Before Gov. Scott Walker began his sweaty presidential announcement speech at the Waukesha County Expo Center on Monday, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin was looking to put his future ambitions on ice. Signaling the attacks Walker will endure from the left,party chair Martha Laning said the governor was guilty of "unprecedented corruption, division" and "extremism."Of course, the charge of "division," is merely a placeholder for saying, "Walker has enacted policies we don't like." The Journal Sentinel Editorial Board followed with an editorial titled, "The ever divisive Scott Walker," which claims Walker is "the most divisive Wisconsin politician in living memory."Well.Set...

    The New York Times ^ | July 15, 2015 | Frank Bruni
    In the formal announcement of his presidential campaign on Monday, Scott Walker mentioned God right away, introduced himself as a preacher’s son and invoked religion repeatedly, as he has throughout a perpetual candidacy that stretches back to his college days, when he told the Marquette University yearbook: “I really think there’s a reason why God put all these political thoughts in my head.” But what I see in him is the kind of soullessness too common in American politicians and the kind of careerism that makes American politics such a dreary spectacle. I see an ambition even more pronounced than...

    On the day Scott Walker would announce in Wisconsin that he was running for president, The New York Times offered a typical takedown on the front page. "Admiring voters" found him to be authentic and approachable, but there were two words these fans apparently did not use: "Smart" and "sophisticated." That might be because liberal snobs at the Times think that those words are defined by how liberal you are. Those are qualities you get from reading the Times. Their own ads have touted them for giving the customer "depth" and "breadth" and "insights." Conservatives are dumb, but they have...
