  • LA Times column ridicules Melania for feeling 'violated' over the Mar-a-Lago raid that went through her 'panties drawer' and says the intrusion is the cost of being married to a 'sticky-handed former president' (Barf alert)

    A Los Angeles Times columnist wrote Wednesday that Melania Trump deserved to feel 'violated' by the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago and ridiculed the former first lady's sex life. 'This is simply the price you pay when you are married to a sticky-handed former president who is unable to grasp the difference between things that belong to him and things that do not,' wrote columnist Robin Abcarian. The columnist mocked how anonymous Melania pals told Radar Online that the former first lady bought new underwear after hers was rummaged through, snarking at the quote: 'This is her home ... it's her...
  • The LA Times Is Literally Testing Out Fake News to See How They Can Gaslight People Into Hating Donald Trump

    One of the funniest things to witness in corporate media is when they take themselves so seriously, that they don’t realize just how comical they actually are. The latest episode of “Corporate Media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome in Action” comes from the Los Angeles Times. In a story titled, Here’s one factor that might peel Trump’s diehard supporters away, they tested out fake news stories purportedly published by either leftist Politico or right-leaning Breitbart. The stories about Trump were manufactured to see how Trump supporters would react to reading propaganda that painted him in a negative light.

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board has called for former President Donald Trump to be charged with “conspiring to defraud the United States and conspiring to obstruct an official proceeding, the electoral vote count” on January 6, 2021.The Times takes at face value the case presented by the one-sided January 6 Committee, without any cross-examination or even the opportunity to see the full testimonies of witnesses — some of whom say their testimony was misrepresented.Many congressional proceedings are met by protests, some of them unruly; Democrats staged a sit-in on the House floor in 2016 to demand gun control, and...
  • Pollak: L.A. Times’ 8 ‘Bombshells’ from Hutchinson Testimony Are All Duds

    The establishment media treated the testimony Tuesday of former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson at the January 6 Committee as if it were damning for Trump — before her claims began to fall apart. The fact that Hutchinson was seen actually hugging members of the January 6 Committee, as if they were partners in some joint enterprise rather than investigators seeking the truth, ought to have raised red flags — but did not, until it was too late. The Los Angeles Times, among others — including Fox News — set aside the basic rules of journalism, accepting as fact the...

    Ever since the advent of COVID-19 vaccines early in 2021, the Special Olympics organization has been in the forefront of promoting their benefits. The organization created a special page on its website with vaccination information and resources, urging “everyone who has access to the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated.” The page informed users that the vaccine would help protect them from getting COVID, prevent serious illness if they became infected and help protect people around them.
  • An Out of Touch Newspaper

    After reading the Los Angeles Times over the past few days, I understand why the once-respected newspaper will most likely go out of business. At least, its print edition will. The paper is incredibly out of touch with working, non-ideological people who simply want a decent life for themselves and their families. Example. In both LA and San Francisco, homeless drug addicts are battering law-abiding citizens. Everyone knows this. We can see it with our own eyes. The crime statistics are staggering. And for every crime, victims suffer. Yet, the LA Times is not outraged by the addicted criminal or...

    As mentioned previously, the race for mayor of Los Angeles features a non-leftist candidate, Rick Caruso, who is polling well and just might win. LA badly needs some adult supervision. The city has around 40,000 homeless, rampant crime, and a corrupt culture at city hall. The main leftist candidate is Rep. Karen Bass, who is more a Leninist than a “progressive.” Given the seriousness of the issues and discontent of LA voters, what does the Los Angeles Times think is most important for voters to learn about Caruso? I kid you not—here is their headline:

    The Los Angeles Times’s editorial board announced on Thursday that it was endorsing Republican Lanhee Chen in California’s controller race, saying “California needs a fiscal watchdog.” The newspaper’s editorial board said they were endorsing Chen because they believe that the controller, who looks at how taxpayer money is being spent by government divisions and can audit government agencies, “should be as independent from the party in power as possible.”
  • News Analysis: Trump delayed weapons to Ukraine and praised Putin. Did that trigger war? (barf alert)

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | March 21, 2022 | Tracy Wilkinson
    The last time (and maybe the first time) most Americans heard of Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian president was at the center of a scandal that would lead to the impeachment of then-President Trump. Trump in 2019 threatened to hold up weapons deliveries to Ukraine — caught even then in a simmering war with Russian proxies — unless Zelensky helped him dig up political dirt on rival Joe Biden. Today, the shadow of that scandal lingers. How much did Trump’s toying with Ukraine, cozying up to Russian President Vladimir Putin and, ultimately, Trump’s acquittal on charges of abuse of power and...

    Musk's finally ready to admit that government subsidies distort markets and that government actors are terrible at capital allocation."Say tomorrow, you get a phone call from Joe Biden," asked Wall Street Journal tech columnist Joanna Stern to Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a Monday night forum. "And he asks: What are your needs from this [$2 trillion spending] bill? How do you answer him?" "We don't think about it at all, really," Musk said, channeling Don Draper to the tune of the audience's uneasy laughter. "It might be better if the bill doesn't pass," Musk added. "The federal budget deficit...

    Liberal partisans who want to crush any shred of fairness in reporting are latching on to a Friday column in the Los Angeles Times by Jackie Calmes, who was an “objective” reporter for decades. The headline was "Why journalists are failing the public with ‘both-siderism’ in political coverage."Jay Rosen, the academic guru of unabashed socialism in the news columns and newscasts, tweeted "I have been waiting for this column — by a former political reporter — for a very long time."

    breitbart ^ | 10 Sep 2021 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    The Los Angeles Times continued its racial attack on California gubernatorial challenger Larry Elder (R), this time on the news pages rather than in the opinion pages, with an article questioning his ties to the local black community. The article, by Donovan X. Ramsey, is titled, “Larry Elder calls himself ‘Sage From South Central.’ But his ties to Black L.A. are fraught.” Ramsey cites “critics” of Elder who “say he’s the Black face of white supremacy and his proposals would harm Black and Latino Californians” — linking to the Times‘ own opinion column, “Larry Elder is the Black face of...

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    Google is turning over user data to US law enforcement, even when requests for that come without a warrant, in the form of requests that are not court-ordered. That emerges from information shared with the LA Times by an anonymous Google user, who said they were notified about this in an email from the tech giant, who said the request came from the Department of Homeland Security, without including the request itself in the email. When this Google user asked to see the document, it turned out to be an administrative subpoena issued by the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE),...

    A collision between a semitruck and an SUV carrying more than two dozen people near the U.S.-Mexico border Tuesday morning has left 15 dead and several others injured, officials said. Twenty-seven people were in the SUV when it struck a tractor-trailer hauling gravel, said Judy Cruz, the El Centro Regional Medical Center’s emergency department director. Fourteen people died at the scene. One more died at El Centro Regional Medical Center, where six others are being treated, Cruz said. At least five more have been flown from the scene to other treatment centers, she said. “The patients are, of course, going...

    A Los Angeles Times opinion column is under fire for comparing supporters of former President Donald Trump to Hezbollah and Nazi sympathizers. “This woman compares her Trump-supporting neighbors, who plowed her driveway, to Nazi sympathizers & Hezbollah & wrestles w/whether to show them any kindness since she ‘can’t give them absolution,’” journalist Megyn Kelly wrote of the piece. “Note to Virginia Heffernen’s neighbors: don’t plow again.” The Los Angeles Times published a piece last week titled “What can you do about the Trumpites next door?” which described how author Virginia Heffernan’s driveway was cleared of snow by her Trump-supporting neighbors....

    The United States is under serious threat of a terror attack from within. That statement is not panic or hyperbole but is based in the very real attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 and messages monitored by federal law enforcement and security officials about follow-up actions contemplated for the days up to and including Wednesday, Inauguration Day.
