  • Bob Mueller vs. Ken Starr: A Classic Media Double Standard

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...

    The U.S. military allowed thousands of Islamic State militant group (ISIS) fighters to flee from their de facto capital of Raqqa, Syria, in a secret deal that boosted the U.S. fight against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to a former Pentagon-backed commander, who has since switched his allegiance to Turkey and who spoke to Reuters. As the spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces, a mostly Kurdish coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, Brigadier General Talal Silo acted as the face and the voice of the U.S.’s leading partner against ISIS in Syria. The U.S.-backed group successfully ousted...
  • NAZIS TAKE ANGER OVER KATE STEINLE VERDICT TO WHITE HOUSE, WHERE THEY ARE OUTNUMBERED BY ‘ANTIFA’

    President Trump and FOX News aren’t the only ones angry over the verdict in the Kate Steinle trial, wherein undocumented Mexican immigrant Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was acquitted of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, as well as most of the charges he faced. Neo-Nazis and white nationalists, many of whom were present in Charlottesville, Virginia this August when a young man allegedly murdered antiracist activist Heather Heyer, gathered in front of the White House this afternoon to use Steinle’s death to call for stricter laws on immigration. The group, which numbered at roughly two dozen, according to eyewitnesses, featured Richard Spencer,...

    First Daughter Ivanka Trump was in Hyderabad, India this week touting female entrepreneurship. Too bad she wasted the opportunity by plagiarizing much of her remarks from one of her previous speeches, Newsweek declared Wednesday in its piece, "Ivanka Trump Plagiarizes One of Her Own Speeches in India."The Newsweek editors regretted that "the breadth of her talking points were recycled from a previous speech she gave during a foreign trip earlier this month."  That other "foreign trip" appears to be the one she made to Tokyo, Japan. They pulled some specific excerpts to prove they had caught Ivanka red handed. "When women...

    Newsweek really jumped the shark Thursday when they claimed that Ivanka Trump “plagiarize[d] one of her own speeches” during her trip to India.Newsweek bashed Ivanka for reusing lines from some of her old speeches. Of course, that’s not plagiarism, as plagiarism requires the words or ideas be taken from someone else.Recycling speeches and parts of speeches is pretty standard for people who have a lot of speaking engagements. “Several lines the 36-year-old delivered Tuesday had been directly pulled from her poorly attended November 2 speech in Tokyo, where she attended the World Assembly for Women alongside Japanese President Shinzo Abe,” Newsweek writer...
  • Men With Muscles and Money Are More Attractive..Showing Gender Roles Aren’t Progressing [tr]

    Muscles and money are qualities that straight women and gay men typically find attractive in men, according to an analysis of Tube Crush—a website where people post unsolicited pictures of men seen on the London Underground. The study at Coventry and Aberystwyth universities in the United Kingdom, published in Feminist Media Studies in August, analyzed images over a period of three years since 2014. The “guy candy” posted on the website were mostly white men—despite London being a multicultural city—indicating that white male privilege is still an attractive quality.

    Never miss a chance to smear conservatives, even if that means somehow connecting the right to the murderous cult leader Charles Manson. That’s apparently the view of the New York Times and Newsweek. Both liberal outlets on Monday used Manson’s death to attack political enemies. A tweet for the NYT opinion piece by Baynard Woods slimed, “Charles Manson wasn't the inevitable outgrowth of the Sixties. If anything, he was a harbinger of today's far right.”  Woods insisted that the killer “had more in common ideologically with far-right groups like the John Birch Society than he did with the anarchic leftism...

    Newsweek continues to embarrass the legacy of the once-reputable publication with anti-Trump hit pieces on a regular basis, but a recent story titled, “How murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump used language to gain followers,” takes things to a dark new level. The left-leaning publication literally compared a convicted mass murderer and cult leader to the President of the United States. Former President of the American Psychoanalytic Association Mark Smaller told Newsweek that part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. “A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally...
  • It's OK to Be White: How Fox News Is Helping to Spread Neo-Nazi Propaganda

    It was a Friday night in early November and Fox News host Tucker Carlson was preaching to the camera about leftists sowing “racial divisions” throughout America. Reacting to an article in The Washington Post about a principal at a Maryland high school investigating an incident in which someone posted fliers proclaiming, “It’s Okay to Be White.” Carlson claimed to see evidence of an anti-white agenda at play in the Post report. The segment was typical Fox News fodder, but with an exception: Carlson was pushing forward a meme promoted by white supremacists, and he was doing so exactly as they...

    Newsweek compares Charles Manson with Donald Trump in an article all the while insisting it does no such thing. “Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated,” Newsweek’s Melissa Matthews contends in an article titled “How Murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump Used Language to Gain Followers.” She then quotes a former president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Mark Smaller, who tells her: “Our current president speaks in an emotional or affective way to large numbers of people in our country who feel a kind of alienation or disconnection from the government.”...

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    Fake news tweets and social media posts that flooded the internet leading up to the 2016 presidential election came from a Russian troll factory that works around the clock like any IT facility—except lies were pumping out to control the American mind and put Donald Trump in the White House. The Internet Research Agency, which works on behalf of Russia inside a guarded, concrete building in St. Petersburg, has day and night shifts and hundreds of former journalists and bloggers creating thousands of posts with false and controversial information to reach certain quotas It was "a merry-go-round of lies," Vitaly...

    Though President Donald Trump came to power on a wave of promises to keep jobs in the U.S., reinvigorate heavy industry and, of course, Make America Great Again, many in his core support group are yet to see the benefits. Plenty of people in manufacturing are turning their backs on Trump because he hasn’t followed through on what he said he'd do, says a General Motors union leader representing workers across the U.S. The warning to the president comes almost exactly a year after Trump won the election with a pledge to improve the lives of American workers and the...

    Let’s start with a rather uncontroversial statement: It’s important to learn about the Holocaust, and Anne Frank’s diary is an excellent way to start. What seems more contentious, however, is the notion that it would be a good idea to dress up as one of the Holocaust’s most famous victims for Halloween. One online costume retailer recently discovered the hard way just how offensive many people find that idea. HalloweenCostumes.com pulled an “Anne Frank costume for girls” off its website on Sunday after being criticized for putting it up in the first place. “It is utterly inappropriate, offensive and quite...

    Add another page to Donald Trump's weird recipe book—the president apparently ate rice and cherry pie for lunch on Tuesday with Senate Republicans. NBC News reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell broke the story right after the meal, tweeting that she overheard a Secret Service agent discussing Trump's intake: "He ate rice and two pieces of cherry pie. Took a few sips of his drink," Caldwell tweeted. "'He loves rice.'" Meatloaf was also served at the Tuesday luncheon, which came as top GOP senators were preparing to revamp the tax code. It's unclear whether the president ate any, but the American people...

    RUSH: On Hillary Clinton. She won’t let go of this. It’s getting embarrassing. It’s getting embarrassing for her, although she doesn’t sense that because she has such a feeling of entitlement and such a sense of having been cheated that she’s lost all grounding in reality on this. I think we are learning a lot about who Hillary Clinton really always has been in this little episode. She, like so many people on the left, considered her election to be a formality. It was that big a slam dunk. It had been fixed, it had been taken care of, everybody...

    After months and months of investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators have nothing to show for their manic search for a crime. Therefore the news this past week that members of Mueller's team interviewed the author of the "Golden Showers" dossier have given much of the mainstream media some slight hope that maybe, just maybe, something in that document can finally give them hope. One MSM outlet in particular, Newsweek, is notable for its desperation to lend validity to the "Golden Showers" dossier. Newsweek assigned its own Jason Le Miere to the unenviable task of lending credibility...

    On Tuesday, President Trump addressed the United Nations and, shocking to no one savelLeft-of-center news agencies, he expressed his strong belief in his own economic policies; in America—its people, way of life, and the Constitution which governs it; and in business enterprise as a path to freedom and prosperity. Trump’s speech, optimistic and pro-American as it was, falls in the mainstream of American presidential tradition. Indeed, it is the stuff of a Truman or a Reagan. But you’d never know it from how it was reported. The Guardian called it “a blunt, fearful rant.” That is a more apt description...
  • Replacing DACA: Future Dreamers Should Be Protected Too

    With the emergence in the last week of Bipartisan Trump, we face the prospect of congressional implementation of a statute that replaces DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) sooner rather than later. Despite some ambivalent tweeting, it now appears as though Trump has agreed in principle with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to enshrine DACA in legislation that also includes additional border security measures (but not border wall funding). Between Democrats and pro-business (and thus pro-immigration) "establishment" Republicans, there is likely majority support in Congress for such a measure.

    The Superintendent of Cherokee Schools District in Georgia has apologized after a teacher told students they were banned from wearing Trump T-shirts. A math teacher at River Ridge High School, who has not been named, incorrectly told two students their Make America Great Again (MAGA) shirts violated the school’s dress code and said they were not permitted to wear them to class. As well as telling the students they were not allowed to wear their preferred clothing, the teacher also shared a personal opinion about the MAGA slogan, in footage that was filmed on Thursday by students and then released...
