  • Right-wing media holds Biden bash-fest, foreshadowing its next four years of coverage

    President Joe Biden implored Americans in his inaugural speech to come together and unify, but the right-wing media machine has wasted no time dishonestly trashing him — foreshadowing what the next four years of coverage from outlets like Fox News will look like. On Fox News Wednesday night, the network decided against airing most of the "Celebrating America" inauguration special — which every other network carried — opting to instead allow propagandists like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity to deliver fiery anti-Biden sermons.

    RUSH: “Twin Suicide Bombings Rock the Iraqi Capital.” This is CNN. The foreign policy failures of the Biden regime are starting to mount here, folks. You look at the timeline here. Joe Biden’s inauguration triggered violence in American cities and abroad. Did you see what’s going in Portland? Did you see the violence in Portland? Antifa is attacking Democrat Party buildings. And the political powers that be in Portland are begging them to stop with megaphones, with Al Sharpton megaphones today begging them to stop. And Antifa is saying things like, “We don’t want Biden. We want revenge.” They’re just...

    RUSH: Well, so far, folks, over 100 people have died today from COVID-19 due to President Biden’s mishandling of the virus. Isn’t that the way we report this stuff? I mean, that’s how they reported it with President Trump. Except they were a little bit more critical than I was. I mean, they had thousands of people dying every day because of Trump. I reduced my number to 100. Over 100 people have died so far from COVID-19 due to President Biden’s mishandling of the virus. Well, they were gonna fix it, right? We’re gonna unify ourselves out the wazoo...

    I didn't walk out of my classes or forsake my responsibilities as an act of defiant protest. I will perform my daily duties to the best of my ability, as a sign of commitment to the values I hold dear.Four years ago, students across America walked out of class (if they had shown up in the first place) in protest of the perceived horror that was the inauguration of President Donald Trump.Students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill walked out of class to protest Trump’s inauguration. More than 100 students at Boston’s Northeastern University walked out of...
  • How Joe Biden Misunderstands Unity

    The Federalist ^ | January 21, 2021 | Ben Domenech
    In Biden's speech, St. Augustine's deep warning about misdirected unity in love of the wrong thing becomes the spiritual equivalent of “c’mon, man.”Yesterday’s remarks from Joe Biden were what we thought they would be: a lot of talk about unity, and a lot of condemnations of other Americans along the way. The unity talk went over just as expected, with Republicans rolling their eyes. Of course there was unity on that dais in Washington, with a thousand of America’s elites — nearly all of them already vaccinated, but wearing masks to send a message — guarded by tens of thousands...

    Like many Americans, I’ve been in a funk since last November. Now it’s time to shake it off and re-engage. George Washington presided over a series of lost battles and tactical retreats during the American revolution. But each battle (regardless of outcome) weakened the enemy, and led to eventual freedom from monarchical rule. The ruling class has taken an election, but they’ve substantially weakened their position in doing so. It’s time to take stock of our relative positions and move on. So, what is the left’s position now? They lost seats in Congress. Even more significant, they lost power in...
  • The Social Media Conundrum

    It is a reflection of the vulgarity and even the criminality now stalking our society that social media, as it is called, cannot extricate itself from this awful question of censorship. Facebook, Twitter and all the other social media platforms that are passing judgment on what Americans say today are in the pickle that they are in because the First Amendment freedoms are extended to pornographers, common criminals, political psychopaths and run-of-the-mill conservatives. Soon, if the social media tycoons have their way, their censorship will extend to ordinary liberals, butterfly collectors and, who knows, maybe even stamp collectors. You do...
  • Abortion Activists Cheer Biden-Harris Inauguration: ‘Sexual Health Champions’

    If the applause of abortion activists is any indication, the new Biden administration will focus its efforts on abortion access – and expanding it. Even before the inauguration of the new President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, abortion activists and groups celebrated the incoming administration. From NARAL Pro-Choice America to Planned Parenthood, abortion supporters are welcoming Biden and Harris to the White House as “sexual and reproductive health champions.” They made their comments both on social media and to the media. As president of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, Alexis McGill Johnson has hinted that she...
  • 'Uncle Tom' Blacklisted by Hollywood

    Actor Ben Affleck once explained why he found it difficult to watch Republican actors on screen. "It's...hard," explained Affleck, "to get people to suspend disbelief. ... When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (expletive) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion." This likely explains why "Uncle Tom," the documentary on which I worked as executive producer, gets no love from the lists of best documentaries of 2020....
  • Will Israel Be Able To Withstand Biden Administration’s Pressure?

    A new administration's unbridled hostility towards Israel. In an interview with The New York Times last month, President-elect Joe Biden restated his intention to return to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. Israel opposes this plan because the 2015 deal ensures Iran will become a nuclear-armed state. Media reports over the past few weeks have detailed some of Israel’s plans to convince the incoming administration to reconsider its position. Among other things, the government intends to use documents from Iran’s nuclear archive, that Mossad agents spirited out of Tehran in 2018, to show Biden and his advisers that the 2015...

    Even as most of the nations on that list have just appeared on another more troubling list. No sooner did Joseph Biden enter the White House on January 20, 20201, before he began rescinding some of his predecessor’s strong immigration policies. In early 2017, for example, Trump issued travel restrictions into the U.S. from various nations. They are currently eight: Chad, Iran, Somalia, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. Although North Korea and Venezuela have nothing to do with Islam, in an effort to present Trump’s policy as “Islamophobic,” then and now his enemies refer to it as a...

    As Joe Biden, an illegitimate president, was sworn in at a funereal inauguration ceremony surrounded by thousands of U.S. troops, Democrats were busy plotting and scheming and planning reprisals against Republicans for doing nothing other than supporting his duly elected predecessor. These anti-democratic Democrats have been driven to utter madness by the events of January 6 even though what happened that day does not compare with the months of Antifa and Black Lives Matter murdering people and burning down cities to protest the Fentanyl-caused death in police custody of George Floyd, a drug-addicted career criminal who resisted arrest. Even...

    As I grabbed some coffee before heading to the Capitol Building to watch the 46th President of the United States of America take his title, the lovely lady behind the counter told me she had never seen anything like this in D.C. in her life. And all I can say as I stand here now in the freezing cold with a handful of others is that I hope America never has to see anything like this again. Nothing is as it seems. It is just horrible, in every sense. There is no one here. And I am not saying...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 20, 2021 | Karl Rove
    President Joe Biden’s inauguration marks not only a new administration’s beginning but also a new chapter for the loyal opposition. The Grand Old Party lost the White House while picking up U.S. House seats, holding half the Senate, and adding to its numbers in state legislative chambers. These conflicting outcomes leave Republicans facing the difficult task of cementing blue-collar Trump voters into their ranks while regaining strength in the suburbs and making inroads with an increasingly diverse electorate. To rebuild, Republicans must decide what their party stands for. The way forward begins with clarifying what the GOP’s answers should be...

    Democrats spent so much of the last four years talking about “norms” and how they were being “violated” that you’d think they were extras on the set of “Cheers” talking about the latest revelations about Michael Jackson and some pre-teen kid. But, no, they’ve been whining about how President Donald Trump didn’t do things the way politicians did things – like constantly telling people only the things they wanted to hear. It’s a huge part of why Trump won in 2016, and why his supporters are so loyal – people are sick of being talked down to, demonized, or having...

    It’s an odd way to seek national unity: call a significant portion of the American public white supremacists, racists, and nativists. Welcome to the Biden presidency. Joe Biden’s inaugural speech as 46th president is predictably being hailed for its “unifying” message. And just as predictably, his invocations of the divisive bromides of the identitarian Left are being swept under the rug. According to Biden, we are a “great nation” and a “good people.” But we also oppress minorities with an ever-rising fervor. “Growing inequity” is among the greatest challenges facing the country, according to Biden, along with the “sting of...

    The newly formed President's Advisory 1776 Commission just released its report. The group was chaired by Churchill historian and Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry P. Arnn. The vice chair was Dr. Carol M. Swain, a retired professor of political science. (Full disclosure: I was a member of the commission.) The unanimously approved conclusions focused on the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the historical challenges to these founding documents and the need for civic renewal. The 16-member commission was diverse in the widest sense of the familiar adjective. It included historians, lawyers, academics, scholars, authors, former elected officials and past public...

    The squishes are almost childlike in their belief that if they only submit to the Establishment hard enough by offering gooey platitudes everything will work out fine for them, like a kid who keeps hoping that this time Santa’s really leaving a pony under the tree. But some people on the right need to understand and accept that there’s no kraken, and others on the right need to understand and accept that there’s no pony. The Jeb! Faction thinks it’s riding high now. Please clap as you see the media elevate them, and why not? They do the Establishment’s bidding....
  • Why Biden’s national mask mandate is a national mask suggestion: Where the president can — and can’t — order Americans to mask up

    Vox via MSN ^ | 01/20/2021 | Sara Morrison
    President Joe Biden’s first official act on his first day in office was signing an executive order mandating that masks be worn on all federal properties and by federal employees and contractors. “The first order I’m going to be signing here relates to Covid,” Biden said. “It’s requiring, as I said all along, where I have authority, mandating that masks be worn, social distancing be kept on federal property.” The original story below was published on November 9, 2020. When President-elect Joe Biden accepted the Democratic nomination on August 20, he said part of his Covid-19 plan would be a...

    Despite all the fearmongering, the violence never erupted. It's worth asking why.Following the violence that overtook our nation’s Capitol after a group of extremists breached the historic building during the congressional certification of the 2020 Electoral College votes, Democrats and the corporate media breathlessly reported that state capitols all over the nation would face a similar fate at the hands of deplorable Trump supporters.After the FBI allegedly leaked to the press a bulletin about the coming attacks, the media and their lawmaking friends readily amplified it. States then called in the National Guard and fortified their capitols, and Americans around...
