  • Kathleen Parker: 'Let Andrew Cuomo Speak for America, Not Trump'

    If you want to maintain job security at the Washington Post, you must adhere to the Orange Man Bad narrative- whether you are a conservative, or a "conservative" such as columnist Kathleen Parker. On Tuesday, Parker stuck to that policy by writing yet another column based on the Orange Man Bad narrative concerning the response to coronavirus "Let Andrew Cuomo speak for America, not Trump." Unfortunately for Parker, her attempt to boost Cuomo backfired on her in a most embarrassing way just a short time later. But before we get to her self-inflicted pie on the face, let's take a...

    Kathleen Parker is going against the grain of her Washington Post colleagues on Sunday. While the Outlook section carries headlines like "Kavanaugh is lying, his upbringing explains why," and "Why senators 'believe' Ford, but side with Kavanaugh, Parker hailed Senator Lindsey Graham as "Sen. Jiminy Cricket," the conscience of the Senate.

    The Scranton Times-Tribune ^ | August 5, 2018 | Kathleen Parker, The Washington Post
    It’s a given that political candidates will target each other with as much oppositional propaganda as they can get away with. But with the Kremlin now playing a third-party shadow role in U.S. elections, the usual game seems to be shifting from blood sport to cold war. Given Russia’s well-established preference for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016, it’s possible, if not likely, that the next round of election meddling will be geared toward keeping the Republican majorities in the House and Senate. For Democrats, this added pressure from Russia could begin to feel like a threat. Imagine believing...

    Just stop, Hillary. Please. By Kathleen Parker Opinion writer March 13 at 7:52 PM She can’t let go. She can’t stop talking about what happened. She wrote an entire book about it. Now she’s telling people in other countries about why she should have won. In India last weekend, she told an audience that she won in all the smart, cool places — and then hit a pandering low that puts a catalogue of others to shame. Hillary Clinton just can’t quit herself. Not then. Not now. In case you missed it, she won the popular vote by nearly 3...
  • The Ground ZOT mosque must be built!!!!

    The Washington Post ^ | 8/18/10 | Kathleen Parker
    It is hard to imagine that anything has gone unsaid about the so-called Ground Zero mosque, but an important point seems to be missing. The mosque should be built precisely because we don't like the idea very much. We don't need constitutional protections to be agreeable, after all. This point surpasses even all the obvious reasons for allowing the mosque, principally that there's no law against it. Precluding any such law, we let people worship when and where they please. That it hurts some people's feelings is, well, irrelevant in a nation of laws. And, really, don't we want to...

    In case you still harbor reservations about how much you love the job Sarah Sanders is doing as White House Press Secretary, read this column from Kathleen Parker at the Washington Post. Ms. Parker complains that Ms. Sanders “humiliates the media on a daily basis.” Ummmmm…yeah, so? Is there a point here? Ms. Parker’s big complaint – her last straw with Ms. Sanders, apparently – was that Sanders began her press briefing on Wednesday by – gasp! – asking various members of the press corps to talk about one thing for which they are actually thankful. “For a press secretary...

    The national media’s relationship with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has taken on a new tension over the last month, as journalists and news commentators have grown more and more personal in their hostility toward the Trump administration’s top spokeswoman.Several high-profile columnists and writers have torn into Sanders over the last few weeks to mock her appearance, the way she talks, and most recently, an alleged disdain she showed the press by asking them at a briefing this week to say why they are thankful this holiday season. “Sanders’s sudden shift from press secretary to minister’s daughter a few...

    A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I'm thankful I wasn't in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share." ADVERTISEMENT "For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for...
  • WaPo's Kathleen Parker Predicts Trump's Removal From Office in 2 Years

    NewsBusters ^ | February 12, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    It appears that "conservative" Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post has joined with "conservative" David Brooks of the New York Times in fully embracing the loony political fantasies of the unhinged left. Both are now predicting the imminent removal of President Trump from office. Brooks predicted Trump would resign from office or be impeached within a year. Parker is very slightly more reasonable by extending that time frame to two years when a new Congress chock full of Democrats elected in 2018 would immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.

    Republicans can argue until their last breath that Trump objectors are sore losers, but isn’t more at stake than “mere politics”? This phrase has been rendered quaint by such serious issues as Russian hackers apparently trying to tilt the election toward Donald Trump; the FBI’s possibly politically motivated practices; Trump’s initial resistance to the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community; Trump’s refusal to release tax records, which might mollify concerns about his relationship with Russia. These aren’t partisan issues, or shouldn’t be, as evidenced by the Justice Department inspector general’s decision to investigate how FBI Director James B. Comey handled...

    Dear Mr. Trump, You won. Welcome to hell. And to think, I thought you’d become president when hell froze over. Now that the election is finally behind us, may I ask a tiny question: Why did you want this job? Was it on your bucket list? After so many square miles of golf courses, trophy wives, gilt mirrors and crystal chandeliers, was there nothing left to mess with? I wasn’t surprised, by the way, when you said you’d spend half your time in New York. I mean, it’s New York! And the White House is a tad bourgeois in an...

    The animal kingdom will have lost one of its staunchest defenders when the Oval Office is abandoned by Barack Obama, who through a series of critical, administrative rulemaking has done more to protect animals than any other president in recent memory. This will be especially devastating if Donald Trump replaces him – not only because of his sons’ lust for hunting exotic game but also because his recently announced agriculture advisory committee includes several active opponents of animal protection policies.
  • Down Memory Lane: What "Conservatives" Said About Palin, 2008

    As part of my ongoing Trump campaign biography, I thought it would be interesting to see what so-called "conservatives" had to say about Sarah Palin in 2008. Turns out, it's not much different than what they have said about Trump (i.e., hatred): Remember how the so-called conservative media treated Sarah Palin in 2008? Charles Krauthammer wrote, “with Palin, the case against Obama evaporates.” Palin’s choice, he claimed, “negates the theme of readiness” to assume the office. Referring to her as a “wing-nut candidate,” Krathammer wrote of Palin’s “inevitable liabilities” due to the fact that any “unvetted neophyte has ‘issues,’” such...
  • Kathleen Parker: Cruz, Rubio Need To Help Uneducated Trump Supporters Understand "Who He Really Is"

    Conservative Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker offers advice to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio on how to take down Donald Trump. Parker said the two need to "make a clear case" to low-educated Trump voters of "who he really is." Parker added they think "finally somebody is speaking for them but the truth is he is not." "Trump's ceiling has been edging up all along because it originally was lower than that and it keeps moving because he keeps surprising everyone," Parker observed. "After Nevada, he's got a commanding lead in some states. In Massachusetts it's like 25% more." "I've...

    Last week Kathleen Parker, the resident almost-but-not quite-liberal at the Washington Post, loaded up and fired at the Republican Party and its melodrama in her weekly op-ed column. It showcased Ms. Parker at her irritating best, smug and condescending, but not truly original. She used her space to argue that the GOP needs Nikki Haley to save itself from itself, she furthered argued that a Hillary Clinton victory would be a win for "rationality," and a loss for the "authoritarian personalities" who increasingly populate the Republican Party base. Like many of her colleagues in the mainstream media, Kathleen Parker seems...

    On CNN's AC360 on Monday, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker revealed her own ignorance of Christian teachings, as she targeted Senator Ted Cruz for something "astonishing" he recently said at a campaign stop: "I don't think there's any chance Ted Cruz can win a general — and here's why....He said...'It's time for the Body of Christ to rise up and support me.' I don't know anyone who takes their religion seriously who would think that Jesus should rise from the grave and resurrect himself to serve Ted Cruz. I know so many people who are offended by that comment." [video...

    When President Obama addressed the nation after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., he reiterated the call to resist animus toward Muslims. This was a familiar message — the same we had heard from President George W. Bush after the 9/11 attacks. We aren’t at war with Islam, both presidents have said, but with an ideology built on distortions (or medieval-minded interpretations) of the Islamic religion. Even so, many Americans still need to be reminded that Muslims, rather than our enemies, are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, scholars, leaders, doctors, mechanics. They’re our fellow Americans. Even so, we continue to...

    Darkness and perpetual struggle, knowledge that your body isn’t really the one you’re meant for, trying to seem “normal” to the world while confused and conflicted inside.  That’s the world of closet transsexuals.  Just a few decades ago, the same struggle—minus the gender change—plagued homosexuals. “Coming out” is a liberating event, moving from a secret world of stress and excuses to a bold declaration of “me.” Caitlyn Jenner came out in a big way, the way Bruce always did things, staying on top, gaining adulation and respect for being one-of-a-kind. In many ways, the journey into faith for Christians, and...
