  • Commentary: I won’t work in Attorney General William Barr’s Justice Department any longer

    San Diego Union Tribune ^ | Oct. 14, 2020 | Phillip Halpern
    After 36 years, I’m fleeing what was the U.S. Department of Justice — where I proudly served 19 different attorneys general and six different presidents. For the last three-plus decades, I have respected our leadership regardless of whether we were led by a Republican or a Democrat. I always believed the department’s past leaders were dedicated to the rule of law and the guiding principle that justice is blind. That is a bygone era, but it should not be forgotten. Maybe I should’ve seen this coming, but like many of my colleagues, I fervently hoped that Attorney General William Barr’s...

    Return to The New Australian The Left's war against America By James Henry Few people appreciate the power of ideas. When they experience the social and economic effects of intellectually inspired long-term trends, many tend to ascribe the process to a conspiracy of some kind. (If only that were so). More than 160 years ago J. S. Mill wrote of how the ideas of a few writers can eventually influence the thinking of a nation's intellectuals. Keynes made a similar point when he wrote: "Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic...
  • Guns Don't Kill People. The Obama Administration Kills People.

    "I'm really good at killing people," Barack Obama once allegedly said. The origin of the quote is the 2013 book "Double Down" by veteran political journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who cite unnamed Obama aides as their source. The two reporters have journalistic credits even a liberal would respect--The New Yorker, The Economist, and MSNBC, to name a few. Some people choose not to give the quote credence because its source is anonymous and it wasn't caught on tape. Skepticism surrounding anonymous quotes is of course understandable though I surmise that most doubters have political motives. People who are...

    Political analyst Mark Halperin’s new book, "How to Beat Trump: America's Top Political Strategists On What It Will Take," sold 502 copies during its first week, according to an industry analysis. Halperin served as an NBC senior political analyst and frequent MSNBC "Morning Joe" panelist until Oct. 2017, when five women accused him of sexual harassment while at ABC News in the early 2000s. NBC dismissed the "Game Change" author shortly thereafter. "During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me," Halperin said following his firing. "I now understand from these...

    Disgraced former MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin’s book How to Beat Trump: America's Top Political Strategists On What It Will Take sold 502 copies during its first week, according to NPD BookScan's Wednesday report. Not many Americans purchased Halperin's book this week despite the description on Amazon that claims, "more than 100 million anxious Americans want to know: how can Donald Trump be beaten in 2020 and evicted from the White House?" Just six reviews of the book have been posted to Amazon, one of which is titled "Write what you know, Mark." In it, user Ball Student wrote, "He'd be...

    Former ABC News political director Mark Halperin has signed a deal to publish a book on how to beat President Trump in 2020 as a part of his attempt to make a comeback in public life following sexual harassment accusations in 2017. Politico reported Sunday that the former journalist was planning on publishing the book How to Beat Trump: America's Top Political Strategists on What It Will Take after inking a deal with Regan Arts. Halperin, 54, interviewed 75 Democratic strategists for the book, among whom were David Axelrod and Donna Brazile. When news broke of his involvement, Axelrod tried...

    "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski apologized on Friday after coming under fire for saying that she had tried to set up meetings between veteran journalist Mark Halperin and women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. "In our discussion about sexual harassment this morning, I said some things that hurt people," the MSNBC host said in a statement, posted online by CNN's Oliver Darcy. "In the case of Mark, my goal today was to start a conversation about hearing from the men whenever we can, but I realize that is not my place." "It isn't my call to make, and...
  • Heilemann Sure Roy Moore a “Perp,” but Claims Knew Nothing of Partner Halperin’s Misconduct

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Ain’t that odd: based just on the transcript of his interview with Sean Hannity, John Heilemann can look at Roy Moore and say, “that’s a perp right there.” . . . So surely supersleuth Heilemann must have been aware of the sexual misconduct by Mark Halperin, which led to his firing from MSNBC and loss of other engagements. After all, Heilemann worked side-by-side with Halperin for a decade, co-authoring two books and co-hosting a TV show with him, among other projects. Get the rest of the story and view the video at FinkelBlog.

    CNN senior correspondent Clarissa Ward said on Thursday that Mark Halperin’s alleged sexual harassment was an “open secret” at ABC News “for years.” Ward — who was an international correspondent for ABC News from 2007 to 2010 — took to Twitter to respond to the CNN report that spoke with five women who accused the now NBC News analyst of sexual harassment while he was at the news network: This was an open secret when I was at @ABC for years- brave of these women to speak up. — Clarissa Ward (@clarissaward) October 26, 2017

    Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?" Imagine he pressed further. Do you have a favorite traditional black food? Who's your favorite African-American performer? It's a safe bet that journalist would be lucky to have a job today as a greeter at Wal-Mart. Mark Halperin isn't in danger of losing his job -- nor should...

    As most of America slept early last Sunday morning, the Bush administration hustled and bustled to prepare for the Sunday morning talk shows – among others Colin Powell was appearing on "Face the Nation" and Donald Rumsfeld was booked on "Fox News Sunday." Condoleezza Rice was not scheduled to appear until prime time, when she would make a star appearance on CBS' "60 Minutes" – the last in a long line of media appearances that caused 9/11 Commissioner Richard Ben Veniste to quip that "Condi Rice has appeared everywhere but at my local Starbucks." Well, others in the Bush administration...
  • Halperin: People Have Told Me That Trump's Win Was The Worst Event In Their Lives.

    Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week and said that there have been people who are optimistic about Trump, but added that there’s the other half who think that this is the worst thing that’s ever happened in their lives. My God—will these people ever get over it? I mean I hope they don’t. The more they whine, the better the Republicans’ electoral chances look in 2018 and 2020. Still, have these folks forgotten about the 9/11 attacks? And Halperin also added that Trump’s victory was more cataclysmic than 9/11 (via Daily Caller): “Outside...

    With news of the death of Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane, let's take a line from another group of the late 60s, Buffalo Springfield: "there's something happening here." What it is ain't exactly clear, but it doesn't seem to bode well for Hillary Clinton. Today's Morning Joe featured an ominous exchange between Joe Scarborough and Mark Halperin. The notion was that a variety of sources--from a senior network exec, to top Obama admin officials, to FBI agents--are saying the same thing: the FBI investigation of Hillary is much further along than most people realize. Listen to Halperin: "the body language...

    So who's Hillary's enforcer? Last week we asked "who got to Donny Deutsch?" when he suddenly became supportive of Hillary whereas just the week before he had been very critical of her. Now the same thing has happened with Ed Rendell. Just yesterday, the former DNC Chairman and Pennsylvania governor was quoted in the New York Times saying Hillary has handled the email scandal "poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly." But on today's Morning Joe, Ed was suddenly singing a different tune, claiming Hillary is doing everything right and plaintively suggesting that there is no problem. That led Mark Halperin to...
