    BEIJING — China’s leaders have sought to project confidence in the face of President Trump’s tariffs and trade threats, but as it becomes clear a protracted trade war with the United States may be unavoidable, there are growing signs of unease inside the Communist political establishment. In recent days, officials from the Commerce Ministry, the police and other agencies have summoned executives from exporters to ask about plans to lay off workers or shift supply chains to other countries. With stocks slumping into bear territory and the currency dropping 9 percent against the dollar since mid-April, censors have been deleting...

    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...

May 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. Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China? Don’t bother. There was once a time when Democrats could discuss Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea, economic tensions in the European Union and the future of Africa. But that was before Trump. Democrats don’t have a foreign policy anymore. They have a Trump...
  • Why is the Media Dividing Us?

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    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...

    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 New York Times’ Hit Piece On Mike Pence Is Anti-Christian Bigotry, Plain And Simple

    The Federalist ^ | 6 Aug 18 | Glenn T. Stanton
    The New York Times’ Frank Bruni really upped his game this week. In an atrociously brutal piece, he called Vice President Mike Pence a “holy terror,” claiming he’s multiple degrees more sinister than President Trump, the otherwise most sinister person on the planet. Bruni actually warns the best case against impeaching Trump is the much greater danger of Pence. Think about that a moment though. For all the venom and apocalyptic hysteria being spewed at everything Trump has ever said, done or probably even thought — and there is plenty there of concern — there is someone even “worse” than...

    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.

    NYPost ^ | August 7, 2018
    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...

  • Race-Based Diversity Is Creating More Trump Voters

    08/06/2018 8:05:06 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 15 replies
    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....

    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...

    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...

    Putting aside the hateful, despicable slurs on Sarah Jeong's Twitter feed, here are some that caught my attention. have you ever tried to figure out all the things that white people are allowed to do that aren't cultural appropriation. there's literally nothing. like skiing, maybe, and also golf. white people aren't even allowed to have polo. did you know that. like don't you just feel bad? why can't we give white people a break. lacrosse isn't for white people either. it must be so boring to be white. basically i'm just imagining waking up white every morning with a terrible...

    If you have a hard time following the logic of some liberal arguments, don’t worry. It’s not you. Taking a page out of George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” our modern prog friends have mastered the art of doublethink — “the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” As Orwell described the “labyrinthine” world of doublethink, it was “To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them,...

There isn’t much that isn’t call racist these days by the left; support the idea of border security? Racist. Support the idea of borders? Racist. Exhale? Racist. In fact, the only thing leftists won’t label as racist is racism by leftists.Progressive activists with press credentials across the country rushed to defend Sarah Jeong, the newest leftists to join the New York Times editorial board, when it was discovered that she had a years-long history of tweeting racist comments about white...

    ShareTweet A prominent conservative has been banned from using her Twitter account for 12 hours for replacing the word “white” with the word “black” in a quote by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong. “White people are only fit to live underground like groveling goblins. They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to white women,” Jeong wrote on Twitter. That was fine by Twitter standards. But for replacing “white” with “black,” and Tweeting the exact same message, black conservative Candace Owens was blocked from using her Twitter account.
