    In what has to be a new low for the New York Times, the Gray Lady (or should we now say the Bearded Lady?) has published an op-ed piece titled “Is God Transgender?” by a New York rabbi named Mark Sameth. Cousin to a man who “transitioned to a woman” in the 1970s, Sameth contends that “the Hebrew Bible, when read in its original language, offers a highly elastic view of gender.” He marshals many purported examples of gender fluidity in the Hebrew scriptures, in order to argue that religion should not be put in service of “social prejudices” against...

    The 20 cowardly Republicans who ran to the just as cowardly New York Times—which afforded many of them the cover of anonymity—just don’t get it: It is not Donald J. Trump who must change but them. For eight long years, these weasels of both the political and journalistic kind have been part and parcel of enabling Barack Obama’s bogus ‘Hope & Change’ whose change is wholly dedicated to the destruction of a sovereign America.

    NY Times ^ | Aug. 10, 2016 | NICK CORASANITI and ALEXANDER BURNS
    Donald J. Trump’s candidacy has driven away throngs of Republican elected officials, donors and policy experts. But not the National Rifle Association. With Mr. Trump increasingly isolated and hobbled by controversies of his own making, the powerful gun-rights group has emerged as one of his remaining stalwart allies in the Republican coalition: the institution on the right most aggressively committed to his candidacy, except for the Republican National Committee itself. The association has spent millions of dollars on television commercials for Mr. Trump, even as other Republican groups have kept their checkbooks closed and Mr. Trump’s campaign has not run...

    After a disastrous week of feuds and plummeting poll numbers, Republican leaders have concluded that Donald J. Trump is a threat to the party’s fortunes and have begun discussing how soon their endangered candidates should explicitly distance themselves from the presidential nominee. For Republicans in close races, top strategists say, the issue is no longer in doubt. One House Republican has already started airing an ad vowing to stand up to Mr. Trump if he is elected president, and others are expected to press similar themes in the weeks ahead. In the world of Republican "super PACs," strategists are going...

    “Kill her.” “Trump that bitch!” “Build a wall — kill them all.” New York Times reporters have spent over a year covering Donald J. Trump’s rallies, witnessing so many provocations and heated confrontations at them that the cumulative effect can be numbing: A sharp sting that quickly dulls from repetition. But what struck us was the frequency with which some Trump supporters use coarse, vitriolic, even violent language — in the epithets they shout and chant, the signs they carry, the T-shirts they wear — a pattern not seen in connection with any other recent political candidate, in any party....

    This summer, The New York Times is ushering in a transformation more radical than it has seen in almost half a century, perhaps since the great Abe Rosenthal overhaul of the 1970s, which created the wide-ranging, multi-section Times we know today. Back then, the Times was grappling with economic headwinds and the rise of TV. Now the Times—like all newspapers—is grappling with economic headwinds and the rise of the smartphone, and its future is on the line once again.

He shared that reputation with his friend Jon Stewart, who left Comedy Central’s 11 p.m. “Daily Show” several months after Mr. Colbert left his 11:30 p.m. program, “The Colbert Report.” In their absence there has been a “Where is Superman?” aspect to this year’s presidential campaign, especially in Left America, Centrist-Left America and, yes, Media America.

    In a nutshell, Trump is a businessman, in New York. Even he needs concrete and windows and of course, his garbage needs to be picked up. Anyone who has ever done anything in New York deals with the mob in one way or another, directly, or most probably, indirectly. But there will NOT be a line item on his tax returns detailing it. Besides, releasing his tax return would unleash the hounds. I worry about Trumps bluster and "seemingly" immature tactics. You have to admit though, they work. He has the GOPe scrambling and they don't know what to do....

But here on the Texas border some communities are engaged in activities that go beyond talk, enforcing some of the toughest rules in the country limiting the types of ID parents can show to receive copies of birth certificates. The result has been a refusal to issue birth certificates to many of the Texas-born children of immigrants here...

    Normally, even the New York Times doesn’t cite such an unreliable source as Mother Jones for evidence. But when it comes to gun control, it’s considered okay to use biased sources, call people names, and thoughtlessly dismiss the notion that gun-free zones endanger lives. After the recent shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana, former Texas Governor Rick Perry suggested that people should be able to defend themselves in public. How did the Times react? It characterized those who agree with Perry as “fanatics who own the Republican Party by intimidation.” Take the Times’ response to the fact that, with just two exceptions,...

    Memo to pollsters: while I’m having as much fun as everyone else watching the unsinkable Donald defy predictions of his assured collapse, what I really want to see at this point is a profile of his supporters. What characteristics predispose someone to like this guy, as opposed to accepting the establishment candidates? The reason I’d like to see such a poll is that I suspect that both conservative and liberal pundits are still getting the Trump phenomenon wrong. And yes, that’s the kind of statement — hey, left and right both wrong! — that I usually hate when other pundits...

    Recently, citizen journalists from the Center for Medical Progress produced an undercover video showing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, discussing the sale of organs from aborted babies. Nucatola's comments included her saying, "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm gonna basically crush below, I'm gonna crush above, and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact." A second undercover video shows Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood's medical directors' council, discussing "less crunchy" methods to abort in order...

    Hillary Clinton‘s campaign sent a letter to The New York Times lambasting them for their recent coverage of Clinton’s use of private email while she was Secretary of State. The letter, first obtained by CNN and then posted online by the Clinton campaign, is in direct response to the Times‘ most recent reporting on Clinton. The Times ran a report saying that two government inspectors general recommended the DOJ open a criminal investigation into Clinton’s emails due to classified material on her private account, but it turns out the recommendation was not on criminal grounds, so the Times ended up...

      Darkness approaches the Clinton campaign. Maybe. Two Inspectors General have asked the Justice Department to open an investigation  into Hillary's handling of classified material on her private server. WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday. The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton's private account contained "hundreds of...

    A conversation about immigration between Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and the Heritage Foundation’s Stephen Moore, reported on by the New York Times this week, never happened. “We have spoken with Stephen Moore and the conversation that was reported did not happen and he will tell you that. I would recommend you reach out to him,” Walker spokeswoman AshLee Strong told Breitbart News on Thursday in response to an article by Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman. On Thursday, the reporters wrote: “Stephen Moore, a conservative scholar at the Heritage Foundation who backs an immigration overhaul, called Mr. Walker’s embrace of a...

    Once again, this time by the New York Times, it has been proven that the only group that it is politically correct to bash or offend is Christians. They turn the other cheek and forgive those who trespass, rather than behead and bomb, or storm newspaper offices to murder and maim. That much was admitted by New York Times editor for standards Phil Corbett in defending the newspaper’s decision to publish Monday a picture of Pope Benedict XVI fashioned out of condoms, after being among those that refused to publish the Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the Mohammed that prompted a...

    Attacks by the New York Times against Republican 2016 presidential candidate Marco Rubio have backfired, bringing in wads of cash and making the once-vaunted newspaper of record look foolish. In the last two weeks, the unabashedly liberal paper has run two hit pieces on Rubio (and in one, his wife) as well. Last week, the Times attacked the Florida senator for getting four traffic tickets in 17 years. On Tuesday, the paper hit him again for taking out student loans to pay for college and then, gasp, buying a 24-foot off-shore fishing boat (the Times, of course, called it a...

    Someone get Mulder on the phone. MSNBC's Chris Hayes: NYT Rubio hit pieces are 'false flags' planted by Rubio himselfMSNBC hosts have spent decades blurring the line between reality, lies, and David Lynchian comedy. As a result, what was once a well-oiled left-wing propaganda machine has descended into chaos and self-parody. These days it’s pretty much impossible to tell whether or not they’re serious when they announce a new conservative conspiracy theory. It’s not inconceivable that they actually believe what they’re saying but, since they don’t do news anymore, it’s just as likely that they’re simply trolling conservatives with cringeworthy...
