    Historians may look back and mark this week as a remarkable turning point in the Trump presidency. While the liberal media was mesmerized by the dull Judiciary Committee meetings (so boring that at least one Democrat was caught watching a golf match while seated in the committee), big things were happening. However, they are the kind of big things which the adversarial media has a hard time covering intelligently. In fact, several of the big events of this past week will further discredit the news media and force it even more toward the defensive. (Already, more than half of Americans...
  • CNN Host Ends Trump Impeachment Panel After Republican Floats Debunked Biden, Clinton Conspiracies

    CNN host Victor Blackwell abruptly ended a Saturday panel about Republicans' impeachment strategy plans after a guest insisted on "debunked conspiracies" about Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. The discussion aimed at identifying the Republican Party's strategies for countering the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump derailed when former GOP South Carolina Lieutenant Governor André Bauer continued to berate the panel with accusations against Joe and Hunter Biden. Blackwell asked Bauer and CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer to respond to Trump acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and several senators' admitting a Ukraine quid pro quo took place. But the...

    Journalist Tareq Haddad said on Saturday that he had resigned from his position at Newsweek because the outlet "suppressed" details -- potentially "inconvenient" to the U.S. government -- surrounding a chemical weapons watchdog's report on the 2018 attack in Syria. "Yesterday I resigned from Newsweek after my attempts to publish newsworthy revelations about the leaked OPCW letter were refused for no valid reason," Haddad tweeted, referring to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Haddad's tweet came as the OPCW defended itself amid concerns about its reporting on the April 7, 2018, chemical weapons attack in Syria --...

    The Newsweek reporter who published an inaccurate story about President Trump's Thanksgiving Day plans has been fired. The outlet's original story claimed the president only planned on tweeting and golfing during his holiday break, neglecting to mention his trip to Afghanistan. Newsweek’s Jessica Kwong, whose Twitter handle identifies her as a political reporter "covering Trump administration and family," initially published the article Thursday morning, before the president's trip to Afghanistan was announced publicly. The story's initial headline was, “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more.” “Newsweek investigated the failures that led to the publication of the inaccurate report...

    Ok, so, what else would we expect from the New York Times, right? Right. Still, the headline that ran with an op/ed piece by the corrupt newspaperÂ’s inept economist, Paul Krugman, betrayed a desperate effort to plumb new depths of journalistic malfeasance by the newspaper of fake record: Image I couldnÂ’t tell you what Krugman says in his latest bit of lame-brainery because itÂ’s behind the TimesÂ’s firewall, and we here at TodayÂ’s Campaign Update are not in the habit of lending monetary support to the faking of AmericaÂ’s news. But letÂ’s be honest: Nothing Krugman has to say is...

    President Donald Trump mocked Newsweek after they reported Thursday he spent Thanksgiving golfing and tweeting. In fact, the president was secretly traveling to Afghanistan to visit deployed American troops. “I thought Newsweek was out of business?” Trump wrote on Twitter, sharing a screenshot of the article and photos of him with the troops in Afghanistan posted by his son Donald Trump Jr. I thought Newsweek was out of business? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2019 “Fake news gonna fake!” Trump Jr. wrote. The Newsweek story, first published at 10:16 a.m., was later updated to reflect the president’s...

    As a consistent critic of Lil Annie Menopause Coulter I have mocked her over the past three years. I never saw any reason to support this hideous bag of quisling bones. Nevertheless, every thread dealing with this lowlife invariably draws her supports out and there will be comments in her support. This always puzzles me considering what site we are on. These things said, I have to ask; given this latest spew of vicious mendacity from this foul pos a woman, what do her supporters have to say to this tweet from their hero?

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested on Tuesday that President Donald Trump had lied about a conversation between them regarding the president's controversial call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Nancy Cordes, the chief congressional correspondent for CBS News, reported on Tuesday that she had pressed McConnell over Trump's assertion that the Republican from Kentucky had told him that his call with Ukraine's president was "perfect" and "innocent." McConnell responded to Cordes by claiming he had never spoken with Trump about the call. When the journalist asked McConnell if that meant Trump had lied, the Republican lawmaker responded: "You'd have to...

    Steve Schmidt, an ex-Republican strategist who worked for President George W. Bush and the late Senator John McCain, has slammed President Donald Trump and his administration for its "corruption." "The corruption is just unbelievable. And if you look back to the Republican convention, Joe, when we talked about it at the time, the chants of lock them up—what I said about it at the time was it was banana republicanism," Schmidt told MSNBC host Joe Scarborough during his Morning Joe show on Monday. "And the descent from the American republican into banana republic territory with all of this stuff has...

    Kurdish forces allied to the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against the Islamic State have committed war crimes by deliberately displacing thousands of civilians and demolishing their homes in northern Syria, according to a human rights group. In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty International said that the People's Protection Units (YPG)—the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish political party, the Democratic Union Party—had in some cases threatened residents with U.S. airstrikes if they did not leave their homes. The YPG has been a key ally on the ground for Western forces battling ISIS in Syria. Earlier this year, the YPG...

    Pesident Donald Trump said on Monday that Iran and North Korea have "tremendous potential" he hoped to help them achieve should they reach deals with the United States. Trump made the remarks Monday at the G7 summit in the French city of Biarritz, where he was joined by fellow leaders from Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif too arrived in the city for separate consultations with France that were apparently welcomed by Trump. "I'm looking to have a really good Iran, really strong, we're not looking for...
  • Newsweek: Time to Rethink Taboo on Cannibalism?

    Since cannibalism is found throughout the animal kingdom and therefore is something natural, perhaps it is time for humans to rethink the “ultimate taboo” against eating human flesh, Newsweek proposes in an article Wednesday. There is nothing necessarily unethical or unreasonable about eating human flesh, declare psychologists Jared Piazza and Neil McLatchie of Lancaster University, but careful reasoning over the merits of cannibalism is often “overridden by our feelings of repulsion and disgust.”While not going so far as to recommend cannibalism, saying “there is no need to overcome our repulsion for the foreseeable future,” the two authors suggest that humans could master their...

    Mary Anne Marsh, a political analyst for Fox News, raised concerns on Monday that President Donald Trump appeared to be consolidating his control over the U.S. intelligence community with the nomination of GOP Representative John Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats as director of national intelligence. "It's more about protecting Trump than America," Marsh, who previously served as a senior adviser to Democratic Senator John Kerry, warned during a segment of Fox News' America's Newsroom on Monday. "John Ratcliffe has been all over the investigate the investigators [probe], who's doing that right now? [Attorney General] Bill Barr, so Donald Trump has...

    Newsweek, which changed hands a few years ago for the grand total of a buck, is now promoting the idea that the left-wing Antifa is basically a harmless organization. This promotion of a touchy-feely Antifa was done via a guest columnist named Tae Phoenix who is described as "a singer-songwriter who uses music as a community organizing tool. She organizes with the Poor People's Campaign and Indivisible, among others." The title of her column, "Ban Anitfa? I've Met Golden Retrievers Who Scared Me More," has Phoenix oozing over just how peaceable the Antifa kids are who must bear the burden of wearing black masks on a hot day:

    WASHINGTON - Five journalists must identify the government officials who leaked them details about a scientist under scrutiny in the 2001 anthrax attacks, a federal judge said Monday. U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ordered the reporters to cooperate with Steven J. Hatfill, who accused the Justice Department and FBI of violating the federal Privacy Act by giving the media information about the FBI's investigation of him. The reporters named in the opinion are Michael Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman of Newsweek, Allan Lengel of The Washington Post, Toni Locy, formerly of USA Today, and James Stewart, formerly of CBS News....

    Climate change proposals from the 2020 Democratic field aren't quite cutting it for the woman behind the Green New Deal. Several 2020 Democratic hopefuls have unveiled initiatives to combat climate change, but most of them don't go far enough for Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The candidates who've released plans are former Vice President Joe Biden, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Senator Elizbeth Warren and former Representatives Beto O'Rourke and John Delaney. "The entire field of climate plans still needs to be pushed," the freshman Democrat told reporters Wednesday. "And the issue is that it's not even that I think it needs to...
