    Media Should Fear Muslims and Leftists, Not Trump The media ought to be thanking Trump for protecting it from its allies. August 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. Trump's criticism of the media “is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence,” claims Artie Sulzberger, the latest scion of the New York Times dynasty. Artie, who got the chairman job because of his last name, earns $5 million a year. The only threat...

    Who’s Afraid of Nancy Pelosi? By Paul Krugman Opinion Columnist Aug. 13, 2018 Normally, a party that gives away $2 trillion without worrying about where the money will come from can buy itself at least a few votes. But Donald Trump’s tax cut remains remarkably unpopular, and Republicans barely mention it on the campaign trail — in fact, Democrats are running against the tax cut more than Republicans are running on it. Nor are Republicans talking much about Trump’s trade war, which also remains unpopular. What, then, does the G.O.P. have to run on? It can hype the supposed menace...

    A restaurant chain is facing a lawsuit regarding a Harlem restaurant staff's refusal to serve a group of transgender woman and a gender nonconforming person. Deja Smith, Daniele Marino, Jonovia Chase, Jahmila Adderley and Valerie Spencer claim they were told the Texas Burgers & Chicken on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 116th Street was out of chicken when they attempted to order there on May 28, but a customer directly behind them had his order taken, according to multiple reports. A video of the discriminatory behavior went viral in May after it was posted to Instagram by "Orange is the...
  • NYC Mayor DeBlasio goons haul away reporter because he asked a question

    Not two hours after New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio gave a ringing defense of freedom of the press, his goons hauled away a reporter for the New York Post who had dared ask him a question in public. On a national TV show Sunday morning, DeBlasio said  “I believe in a free, strong media with diverse views — I’ll defend it with all I’ve got.” Apparently, he doesn't have much to defend it with. Just two hours later, after de Blasio cut a ribbon to kick off the parade and was posing for photos near West 37th Street and Sixth...

    Today’s New York Post will come with a Supreme promotional cover wrap. After the rumors circulated over the weekend, Supreme confirmed the collab this morning, releasing a video showing the co-branded paper fresh off the printing press. The wrap features the paper’s signature letterhead, as well as a red Supreme box logo on white background. With the Supreme FW18 lookbook rumored to drop today, it would seem the New York Post advertisement will mark the start of the new season. As with all things Supreme, people are already trying to resell copies of the New York Post on Twitter and...

Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China? Don’t bother.

    Who could have predicted back in 1928 that Al Smith's successor as governor of New York would be explaining his advancement of legislation by his "solidarity" with the pope?  Back then, poor Governor Smith was defeated in his run for president in part by anti-Catholic fears that he represented a "Romish Peril," not least by way of a transatlantic tunnel between Washington and the Vatican.  A vote for Al Smith would put America under the dictatorship of the pope. So when Governor Andrew Cuomo, literally on the same day Pope Francis declared that the death penalty is "inadmissible" in all cases, introduced...

    If you’ve seen my prior work, you know that I often focus on the dirty deeds of mainstream media. Last week, I posed the question: “Is the Press an Enemy of the People”. Of course, when I say “press”, I am referring to the six mega-corporations that own 90% of the media. And there is little doubt that these corporations treat us like enemies, dividing us every chance they get. Just this week, Ezra Klein, founder and editor of Vox, wrote an article in which he excused the feminist movement for spreading the message of #KillAllMen across various social media...

    [snip]In savaging Murdoch's News Corp, de Blasio got off a couple of rib-ticklers. First, he claimed that in contrast with the hated News Corp: “CNN and the major networks do not harbor a daily, hourly political agenda.” He then expressed nostalgia for the good old days, when liberals controlled all the major media outlets. He longed for: “A world without News Corp. A world with the kind of reporting–both sides–and a real devotion to objectivity that was the norm up to the 1970s in this country.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...

    The big tech giants are moving fast against the political right, the libertarian radicals, and those walking away from the Democrat Party in the United States. The same applies in my country, the United Kingdom, too. Over the weekend we saw Candace Owens, a strong, young, black woman suspended from Twitter for daring to point out the allegedly algorithmic hypocrisy of Twitter by replacing the word “white” with “Jewish” in a series of tweets modeled on those by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong.

    New York City Launches Voter Registration Drive in Jails Casting a ballot will be easier for eligible inmates under a new program announced by Mayor de Blasio By Katie Honan Aug. 7, 2018 7:19 p.m. ET New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio laid out a new voter registration drive in the city’s correctional facilities. Eligible inmates will be able to directly sign up to vote and have their absentee ballots picked up from jail. In the past, these forms and ballots were sent through regular mail, where security measures could cause delays. Inmates would register to vote using their...

    President Trump’s repeated cries of “fake news” and attacks on journalists as “enemies of the American people” have resonated with his base, with 43 percent of Republicans saying he “should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” The results — suggesting that a plurality of Republicans would have no problem trashing the First Amendment — came from a stunning new poll conducted by Ipsos and reported Tuesday by the Daily Beast. The survey also showed that just 36 percent of GOP voters disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific news organizations,...

    You have probably heard by now that the New York Times recently hired a racist. If you are familiar with the New York Times you probably weren’t to surprised by that but a lot of people out there are finally realizing that the liberal left doesn’t care about racism if it directed at white people...

It looks like Wikipedia editors have decided to stick up for Jeong. From The Daily Caller:New York Times editorial board...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/06/2018 | Ed Straker
    The liberal media are in such a desperate hurry to change the demographics in this country that they can't wait for rhetoric to match reality.  That's why it's understandable that the New York Times claimed that America is only 60% white.  In case you had doubts, the Times even linked to a U.S. Census website to back up its claim.  How much more authoritative can you be than that? The only problem is that the webpage the Times linked to does not say the U.S. population is 60% white; it says the U.S. population is 76% white. You might chalk this up to sloppy fact-checking except for...
  • Race-Based Diversity Is Creating More Trump Voters

    The case of new New York Times editorial writer Sarah Jeong’s openly anti-white bigotry is perhaps the most telling example of how far the American left has sprinted from the legacy of Martin Luther King and towards a form of retro racist tribalism that is perhaps as far from the American middle as it is from the American right. This will either spell the doom of the Democratic Party — or of the American Experiment. Because such concepts cannot survive in an America that resembles anything like the amazing nation that emerged in the second half of the 20th Century....

    The directors of the Newseum in Washington, D.C., have apologized and taken down shirts bearing the slogan "You Are Very Fake News" after facing widespread public backlash for the merchandise on Friday. A Saturday statement on the Newseum's website noted that the shirt would be removed from the museum's gift shop and online store, and apologized for selling the shirt, which bears President Trump's popular derision aimed at members of the news media. "The Newseum has removed the 'You Are Very Fake News' T-shirts from the gift shop and online. We made a mistake and we apologize," the statement reads....

    Journalist Twitter is angry again. The target this time is the 'Newseum'. Its museum’s gift shop now sells President Trump-related paraphernalia, including “Make America Great Again” hats. It also sells T-shirts reading, “You Are Fake News." ..Reporters and pundits are very upset about the merchandise, because Trump is the bad man, and the bad man is not allowed in the clubhouse. Many in the press responded Friday evening in the normal fashion. They tweeted self-righteous declarations, self-indulgent proclamations, and even threats. The New York Times’ Michael Barbaro tweeted, “This is a very bad idea [Newseum] – you exist to honor,...

    Murphy Brown creator Diane English says she may need to get security protection as she works on the return to CBS of the biting political comedy series. “I might have to have some protection,” English told reporters in a scrum after her show’s Q&A panel at TCA. “I’m not kidding.” English referenced the “scary times” in which the show is coming back with original episodes after two decades. The very first episode, which takes place on November 8, 2016, “really sticks our head into the lion’s mouth,” said star Candice Bergen, boasting, “This show has no fear of anyone.” These...
