  • MSNBC Guest Says Trump Mocked Warren over 'White Anxieties about Who's White'

    Curious as to how clueless is the New York Times? Mara Gay—a member of the Grey Lady's editorial board—claimed on Ari Melbers's MSNBC show today that President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America."Anxieties about who is white in America? What meaningless identity-politics gobbledygook! No, Ms. Gay. Trump's point is that Warren cheated. That she made her bogus claim of Native American-hood in order to get ahead in academia.
  • Trump Talks ‘Dishonest Media,’ Stahl Cuts Him Off; Trump Zings: ‘I’m President and You’re Not’

    During a two part interview with President Trump aired on 60 Minutes on Sunday night, Lesley Stahl asked “what’s the biggest surprise” he's learned as President? Trump cited the duplicity of Washington politicians, but when he relayed how “the other thing I’ve really learned is I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonest,” Stahl cut him off: “I’m going to change the subject again.” Referring to an earlier exchange, Trump pointed out: “Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like,...

    There is a hit piece on me in the New York Times today, which as a conservative I take as a point of honor. Just to note some of the inaccuracies in the piece: "When Christine Blasey Ford testified before Congress last month about Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assault, an online news site called Right Wing News sprang into action on Facebook. The conservative site, run by the blogger John Hawkins, had created a series of new Facebook pages and accounts over the last year under many different names, according to Facebook." I have never created a Facebook...
  • NYT Columnist: Ending College Discrimination Against Asians would do Them 'Egregious Harm'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    This is Orwellian: the Asian-American author of a New York Times column claims that ending discrimination against Asian-Americans in college admissions would do them "egregious harm." It's not simply that The New York Times found an Asian-American willing to write a column—in the context of the lawsuit against Harvard— supporting continued discrimination against Asian-Americans in college admissions. It is this line by Lisa Ko that is absolutely mind-boggling [emphasis added throughout]: "Eliminating race as a consideration in admissions would cause egregious harm to people of color, including Asian-Americans."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Ok, so, that Kavanaugh smear didn’t work, so the fake news media needs a new narrative. – Meet the new narrative, same as the old narrative. The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.

    MSN News ^ | October 13, 2018 | Kenneth P. Vogel and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times
    Early in his presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump dismissed political data as an “overrated” tool. But after he won the Republican nomination, his team began building a database that offers a pipeline into the heart of the party’s base, a comprehensive list including the email addresses and cellphone numbers of as many as 20 million supporters. Now, consultants close to the Trump campaign are ramping up efforts to put that database — by far the most sought-after in Republican politics — to use, offering it for rent to candidates, conservative groups and even businesses. It is an arrangement that has...

    Donald Trump is responsible for all manner of things, particularly if you ask anyone at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post. He’s caused unrest around the world using nothing more than tweets, sparked riots in the streets and I’m pretty sure at least a couple of people have blamed him for global warming. But perhaps his greatest trick of all has been to increase the rates of alcohol consumption in America. Or at least that’s the opinion of WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker. Amid hurricanes, a vanished journalist, the recent Supreme Court hearings, midterms and “mobs,” it...

    DUBLIN, Ohio — Robert Peters and George Fidelibus walked off the 18th green at the Golf Club of Dublin, then carried pints of beer to the patio overlooking the course, which was framed by $500,000 homes. Their conversation quickly turned to the president. “I’m feeling better and better about him all the time,” said Mr. Peters, 63, a retired engineer, who had once been cool to Mr. Trump. Mr. Fidelibus, 75, a retired banker in a Calloway hat, had also once been skeptical of the president’s bullying and lack of self-control. “I’m a supporter of Trump now,” he said “He...

    Lonely Democrat media (NY TIMES, CNN) still hoping Bredesen can pull it off. In the NY Times poll, it literally says "It’s just one poll, though." Where was that attitude when they were predicting Trump to lose in 2016? 28,607 CALLS on this poll. 593 responses. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate, leads our poll.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 12, 2018 | Holman W. Jenkins, Jr.
    Last Saturday’s column on the New York Times investigation of Trump family tax dodging put aside the question of whether hefty inheritance taxes are good public policy. Let’s take it up now. Those who complained that my nondefense “normalized” Trump-era corruption miss an obvious fact. The events took place 30 years ago. It was already normalized. The Times itself has now run two op-eds making the same point. The appraiser who valued Trump property for tax purposes, according to the paper’s investigation, was a “favorite of New York City’s big real-estate families.” Trump family lawyers and accountants were the same...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | October 11, 2018 | William A. Jacobson
    So many lines have been crossed by Democrats and their supportive media, IÂ’m not sure there are any lines left. Stephen Miller, advisor to Trump, is hated by Democrats and other leftists because of his role helping elect Trump and MillerÂ’s strong positions on immigration. MillerÂ’s condo building has been the subject of protests. The New York Times investigated MillerÂ’s high school and college years: Mr. MillerÂ’s journey to this point, outlined over dozens of interviews with friends, classmates and current and former colleagues, is a triumph of unbending convictions and at least occasional contrivance. It is a story of...

I'm the most severely wounded US Airman to survive. I worked alongside Democrat Congresswoman Gabby Giffords on her veteran advisory committee.  I endorsed her, have great respect for her, and helped her win her final election with a pivotal campaign commercial. In Giffords' Time Magazine interview, I was honored to be named as someone who inspires her. I'm not a conservative. I'm not a...

    NY Mag ^ | 10/10/2018 | By David Wallace-Wells
    You now have permission to freak out ~snip~ The New York Times declared that the report showed a “strong risk” of climate crisis in the coming decades; in Grist, Eric Holthaus wrote that “civilization is at stake.” If you are alarmed by those sentences, you should be — they are horrifying. But it is, actually, worse than that — considerably worse. That is because the new report’s worst-case scenario is, actually, a best case. In fact, it is a beyond-best-case scenario. What has been called a genocidal level of warming is already our inevitable future. The question is how much...

    The New York Times ^ | March 28, 2017 | The Editorial Board
    That didn’t take long. Only 10 weeks into his presidency, and at great risk to future generations, Donald Trump has ordered the demolition of most of President Barack Obama’s policies to combat climate change by reducing emissions from fossil fuels. The assault began with Mr. Trump’s pledge in Detroit to roll back fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks, continued with a stingy budget plan that would end funding for climate-related scientific programs and reached an unhappy apex Tuesday with an executive order that, among things, would rescind the centerpiece of Mr. Obama’s clean power strategy, a rule that would...

    DALLAS — After church on a recent Sunday, Emily Mooney smiled as she told her girlfriends about her public act of rebellion. She had slapped a “Beto for Senate’’ sticker on her S.U.V. and driven it to her family’s evangelical church. But then, across the parking lot, deep in conservative, Bible-belt Texas, she spotted a sign of support: the same exact sticker endorsing Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat who is challenging Senator Ted Cruz. “I was like, who is it?” she exclaimed. “Who in this church is doing this?” Listening to Ms. Mooney’s story, the four other evangelical moms standing around...

    In their 2009 book From Poverty to Prosperity, authors Arnold Kling and Nick Schulz noted how the productivity of a typical immigrant surged upon arrival in the United States. Thanks to feverish investment in all things American, those working in the United States (at all levels of income) are equipped to produce at levels that are the envy of much of the world. Simply stated, to be able to work in the United States is to win the proverbial lottery. While most Americans can’t lay claim to any substantial inheritance, we increasingly live and work as though we do. The...

    Some people had trouble with the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. For left-wingers, it was another episode of Meltdown Theater. Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed by a 50-48 vote on Saturday, but the road to get here was insanely bumpier than originally projected. Three sexual misconduct allegations—all without evidence or corroborating witnesses—opened the door for Democrats, who dropped these allegations at the last minute, to execute one of the most vicious character assassination campaigns in recent memory. If they couldn’t block him, they were going to destroy his life, his family, and his reputation. All I can say is I...

    Former Trump campaign adviser Rick Gates, who has pleaded guilty in Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation, sought proposals from an Israeli company in 2016 to create fake online identities in an effort to aid President Trump's campaign, The New York Times reported Monday. Gates sought a proposal from a company staffed by former Israeli intelligence officers, Psy-Group, to use fake identities to sway 5,000 Republican National Convention delegates by attacking Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), an opponent of Trump's at the time, according to the Times. Mark Mazzetti, one of the Times reporters who authored the story, said Monday on CNN...
