  • NYT Editorial Board Member Attacks NRA for Having Guns in Its Gun Museum

    Op-ed paints gun owners as wannabe thrill killers inspired by John Wayne Editorial board member Francis X. Clines wrote in the piece that the Fairfax, Virginia gun museum, which features firearms from every era of American history, represents the worst of America. In particular, Clines was troubled by a display detailing gun use in Hollywood movies. "There are thousands of ingenious, gleaming rifles and handguns in displays about America's gun-rich history of colonialism, immigration, expansionism and vigilante justice," Clines wrote on page A22 of Monday's Times. "But it is the gallery devoted to Hollywood and its guns and good-guy shooters...
  • 'Barghouti is not a prisoner'

    04/17/2017 3:12:56 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 38 replies
    Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) responded on Monday night to the publication of Marwan Barghouti's article in The New York Times: "Barghouti is not a prisoner," Hotovely said. "He is a convicted murderer and a terrorist. "The New York Times has provided a platform to a terrorist without noting the fact that he planned and carried out the cold blooded murder of Jews simply for having been Jews. "This is not a matter of freedom of speech. It is anarchy. When a major newspaper with a reputation for responsible journalism becomes a platform for murderers, it provides legitimacy for...
  • THE INCOMPETENT NEW YORK TIMES CAN’T GET ANYTHING RIGHT

    On Thursday, the New York Times published an article on a vote in the Senate that was headlined: “Senate Lets States Defund Clinics That Perform Abortions.” The article, by Jennifer Steinhauer, bitterly described how a measure under the Congressional Review Act passed the Senate, with a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence. A reader pointed out that a correction in yesterday’s Times admitted that the reporter (and any editor who may have read the piece prior to publication) lack a high-school level knowledge of the Constitution: Correction: March 30, 2017 "An earlier version of this article misstated the circumstances...

    NY Times ^ | April 1, 2017
    President Trump and his administration are offering the country a graduate-level course in the selling of the presidency. Much attention has focused on how Mr. Trump is using the White House for personal gain, but many other officials, including members of his family, friends and close aides, also stand to rake it in at the public’s expense. Mr. Trump has driven right over the Constitution by allowing foreign governments to funnel money to him through his hotels and golf courses, in violation of the emoluments clause. So it comes as no surprise that the people who work for him have...

    NY Times ^ | March 25, 2017 | Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman
    President Trump ignites a lot of fights, but the biggest defeat in his short time in the White House was the result of a long-running Republican civil war that had already humbled a generation of party leaders before him. A precedent-flouting president who believes that Washington’s usual rules and consequences of politics do not apply to him, Mr. Trump now finds himself shackled by them. In stopping the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, the Republican Party’s professed priority for the last seven years, the rebellious far right wing of his party out-rebelled Mr. Trump, and won a major victory...

    Thursday's New York Times has a report on how the highly suspicious dossier alleging that Donald Trump was compromised by Russian intelligence agents came into existence. Among the other interesting revelations was that the dubious opposition research report was put together by the research firm Fusion GPS: The story began in September 2015, when a wealthy Republican donor who strongly opposed Mr. Trump put up the money to hire a Washington research firm run by former journalists, Fusion GPS, to compile a dossier about the real estate magnate's past scandals and weaknesses, according to a person familiar with the effort....
  • Take Donald Trump's Wiretap Claims Seriously

    The current scandal surrounding President Donald Trump’s tweeted accusations that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower is proof of what might be called the Salena Zito rule. Zito, of course, wrote the essay in the Atlantic how Trump’s supporters took him “seriously, but not literally,” whereas the press took him “literally, but not seriously.” This is a good way to understand the current state of the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and Trump’s wild accusations against Barack Obama. Barring an unexpected turn of events, FBI director James Comey will confirm on Monday before the House Intelligence Committee that...

    "Sean, I'd like to ask you about two different topics but could you help us all by calling on Peter right now?" Peter Baker is the White House reporter for the New York Times. Spicer declined Simendinger's request. "No, I'm gonna— I understand," Spicer said. "I actually call the questions. Alexis, if you don't want to [ask] your question, I can call on somebody else." "Could you call on the New York Times, please?" Simendinger said. But Spicer moved on to another reporter.

    Then rounds down to support his argument You were on the receiving end of 16 hours of brutal mockery over the worst piece of “journalism” ever, I imagine you’d want to lash out. You’re the embarrassed butt of a national joke, you have no valid contrary arguments, and you just lent incalculable assistance to your arch-enemy’s cause. Having burned yourself badly - and being a liberal, thus incapable of introspection - you’re spoiling for a fight.

    That moment when one fake news outlet attacks another fake news outlet, as reported by yet another fake news outlet. This is getting extremely fake-complicated.: Dean Baquet, the fake editor of the fakest fakety fakey fake Newspaper of Record, the New York Times, got all sassy regarding the fake news competition yesterday. He told an interviewer with another fake news outlet – The Hill – that the new slogan adopted by the Washington Post, “Democracy Dies in the Dark”, “sounds like the next Batman movie.” Oooooh, burn!

    In the latest dramatic plot twist to emerge from Trump's accusation that Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower prior to the election, the NYT reports that FBI director James Comey asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s allegation that Obama eavesdropped on the soon-to-be president. According to the NYT, which cites 'senior American officials' Comey has argued that the "highly charged claim" is false and must be corrected as there is no evidence to back them up, but the DOJ has not yet released any such statement. In other words, just a few months after Democrats savaged...

    Reporters from The New York Times should have asked former New York Mayor Edward J. Koch what he thought of President Donald Trump's speech Tuesday night. And just because the guy is dead should not have made any difference. After all, the paper quoted him Tuesday attacking Trump.

    An engineer turned historian, Carroll Quigley, who knew a thing about how things really work, observed that the technical guarantor of early American Democratic-Republican Democracy, was the people's ability to remain sovereign in their own self defense. Quigley postulated that the ability of backwoods colonial gunsmiths to independently craft their own smoothbore rifles, was what really kept at bay, King George and his counselors. This golden age of frontier democracy was ended with the rise of gun barrels "rifled" with a gently rotating grooves to cause the bullet to spin, greatly increasing long range accuracy. This technique was beyond the...

    The media is promoting violence against senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller following his interviews last Sunday in which he talked about vote fraud influencing the presidential election. CBS Television show The Late Show with Stephen Colbert featured a segment that showed Miller about to have his head bashed in with a baseball bat, as a mental patient about to be given electro-shock therapy and with his severed head on a pike.

    WASHINGTON — Now, stacked on the Trump tower of petrifying things we have to worry about — war with Iran, war with China, war with Mexico, war with Islam, war with koala bears — there is yet another looming disaster. The East Wing is perilously behind in planning for the Easter Egg Roll. Is the White House dropping the ball — or rather, the ovoid? As our omnipresent new president hijacked our reality, the first lady vanished, sparking headlines for nary a glimpse in D.C. since the inaugural. Just as there is a gush of leaks from the resistance in...
  • Neil Gorsuch, the Nominee for a Stolen Seat

    01/31/2017 8:34:31 PM PST · by MNDude · 135 replies
    It’s been almost a year since Senate Republicans took an empty Supreme Court seat hostage, discarding a constitutional duty that both parties have honored throughout American history and hobbling an entire branch of government for partisan gain. President Trump had a great opportunity to repair some of that damage by nominating a moderate candidate for the vacancy, which was created when Justice Antonin Scalia died last February. Instead, he chose Neil Gorsuch, a very conservative judge from the federal Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit whose jurisprudence and writing style are often compared to those of Justice Scalia. If...

    When arguing with the Left about matters of national security and terrorism, one becomes accustomed to their habitual moving of goal posts and artificial construction of sample sizes that deliberately exclude relevant cases.The most notorious example, of course, is the beloved “since 9/11…” canard, such as the oft-repeated although false claim that since 9/11 right-wing terrorists have killed more Americans than Islamic terrorists.The recent executive order by the Trump administration on immigration led to an urgent desire to proclaim that there is no terrorism threat from immigrants. The most egregious example: A tweet from The New York Times’ White House correspondent...
