  • Gloves Come Off: Far Left Democrat Insinuates Black And

    The border crisis appears to have inched the Democratic Party towards another episode of internal strife. Civil war? Well, I’m not so sure about that, but it’s been getting pretty nasty. The House passed a $4.6 billion border package that included strings attached, aimed at curbing immigration enforcement. This was pie-in-the-sky. Trump would never sign it, though he did sign the Senate bill into law, which provided the same funding but without the trash provisions against enforcing the law. It was also overwhelmingly bipartisan. Moderate House Democrats and Pelosi signed off on the Senate bill, which infuriated the far left....

    Isn’t it “funny” how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us are actually the least tolerant of all? FoxNews.com reports that Washington Post national political correspondent Dave Weigel referred to President Trump’s supporters in no uncertain terms as “rubes” during an appearance on a left-wing podcast Monday. Weigel made the comments during an appearance on the “Chapo Trap House” podcast, during which he discussed the recently concluded partial government shutdown. The remarks were first reported by The Daily Caller. “[Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell [R-Ky.] didn’t care about the wall… he’s very good at identifying what the...
  • Hah! Democrat and Liberal Media’s Latest Motto: We Lost But We’re Really Winning

    12/10/2017 9:03:34 AM PST · by davikkm · 16 replies
    Democrats and the liberal media have already conceded Alabama to Judge Roy Moore. After hurling every smear and vicious attack EVER at the Alabama Judge they see they are still going to lose. Alabama voters DON’T TRUST DEMOCRATS OR THEIR LIBERAL MEDIA! Why should they? When was the last time the Washington Post or ANY liberal media outlet published a positive piece on Alabama? 30 years ago? 50 years ago? Judge Roy Moore pulled ahead of his very liberal opponent Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate special election. Moore now leads Jones 49-45 in the Real Clear Politics averages.

Trump's principled decision follows United States policy adopted since 1995 Media falsely discredit Trump as he confronts UN on Jerusalem The media has discredited President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital -falsely claiming the President has reversed nearly seven decades of American foreign policy. Trump’s decision has pitted America squarely against the United Nations.

    Does anyone believe that the fake ABC and CNN hit pieces on Trump were the result of overzealous fairness? If it weren’t so outrageous, this would be funny . . . On Brian Stelter’s CNN show this morning, during a discussion of the spate of MSM misreporting of stories in a way unfavorable to President Trump, guest David Frum actually said: “The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    President Trump on Saturday evening issued a call for a reporter with The Washington Post to be fired because of a quickly deleted tweet that presented a misleading impression of Trump’s rally crowd in Florida. The Post reporter, David Weigel, had earlier tweeted a photo of the crowd gathered at Pensacola Bay Center for Trump’s speech there Friday evening, showing numerous empty seats. He removed the tweet after being told by others that the photo was taken before the venue filled up and apologized in a later Twitter exchange with the president. Trump’s public response: “.@daveweigel of the Washington Post...

    Once again, you called it right, President Trump! The truth FINALLY got its pants back on Friday while mainstream media liars were caught flashing their dirty undies at the masses, their lies having already traveled halfway around the world. This time, the odious stench of burning coming from CNN, CBS, MSNBC and the far more cunning Washington Post, all of whose pants were on fire, went viral. With most attention riveted on Liar King CNN, CBS and MSNBC came jumping, flames and all, into the lie pit‚Äîallowing the WaPo’s David Weigel to almost wiggle out of his lies.

    "For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may have been all it was much of the time, but when candidate Obama got in trouble in 2008, it also became a place for partisans to discuss a coordinated media strategy." When Kevin Drum (Mother Jones) argued that wasn’t the kind of campaign Obama wanted to run, Ackerman replied,...

    Roy Moore's campaign called The Washington Post a "worthless piece of crap" and refused to provide proof of claims it has made to cast doubt on one of his accusers. “The Washington Post is a worthless piece of crap that has gone out of its way to railroad Roy Moore,” Moore campaign strategist Brett Doster wrote to The Post in an email. “There is no need for anyone at the Washington Post to ever reach out to the Roy Moore campaign again because we will not respond to anyone from the Post now or in the future. Happy Thanksgiving.” {..snip..}

    President Donald Trump slammed Washington Post politics reporter (and former Journolist) Dave Weigel for posting a photo mocking Trump for the size of the crowd at his rally Friday night in Pensacola, Florida that was actually taken well before Trump entered the venue. Weigel mockingly quoting Trump’s tweet about the rally, “Packed to the rafters”. As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier Saturday, liberals online, including the site Raw Story, were spreading a photo of the rally taken well before Trump took the stage at the Pensacola Bay Center that showed many empty sections of seats. It was falsely claimed that...

    Journalists were rattled on Saturday after President Donald Trump called out a Washington Post reporter for tweeting a misleading picture of Trump’s rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday night. Weigel had tweeted a picture of Trump’s rally that appeared to show an empty arena, but it was taken well before the rally got underway in front of a packed venue. Weigel apologized in response to Trump’s tweet, at which point the president declared victory and called on Weigel to be fired. Weigel, Trump tweeted, “just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night...

    “The reason I haven’t written about Mr. Gosnell is the same reason Philadelphia journalists don’t write about homicide trials in Detroit” The butchery of infants born alive after abortions at the Philadelphia clinic run by Kermit Gosnell is gruesome beyond description, as described in my prior post, A Culture of Death is their choice. The details are not new. The horrific Grand Jury Report (h/t Dave Weigel) was issued over two years ago. Yet this mass murder, reportedly of 100 infants although only seven cases were charged, has been met with near silence by the mainstream media.

    NBC News reporter Chuck Todd mocked this FReeper on Twitter tonight for my pointing out that the media would rather lose money than cater to conservative consumers of news. The conversation started over a comment by Slater reporter Dave Weigel on media bias in polls:Do people actually think news networks would pay for unreliable polls with bad samples b/c they love Obama so much? Don't answer that.I replied: News media has deliberately alienated conservatives, willfully losing money to further liberalism.

    I’ve commented a few times on how the media has, for the most part ignored Herman Cain and his early success. Yesterday Dave Weigel wrote quite a few excellent posts but the most interesting was concerning a Gallup poll and Herman Cain: Cain has come out of the gate making knowledge blunders (not knowing what the “right of return” is, for example), getting generally dismissive coverage. There is no team of reporters covering his every move on the trail, as there is for Huntsman. There’s no massive scrum outside his appearances, as there is for Pawlenty. And yet he’s...

    Anxiety was pretty high in the heat of battle with the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. However, a lot of that tension exists beyond the state of Delaware and there have been self-proclaimed conventional wisdom wizards critical of how the electoral process in Delaware has worked itself out. One of those has been former embattled Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel, who in a Slate.com post dated Sept. 14, took a few shots at conservative talker Mark Levin, calling him a "creep" for his criticisms of The Weekly Standard John McCormack, author of an unfavorable story about Delaware...
