  • Liberals Don't Think They're Divisive?

    In the wake of the horrible Buffalo, New York, supermarket shooting, liberal journalists lunged at the opportunity to blame the mass murder on conservative and Republican messengers. On CNN, S.E. Cupp was especially egregious in accusing the right-wingers of "amplifying" a "white replacement theory," claiming the Democrats expected the influx of immigrants (largely illegal) would eventually lead to red states turning blue. Whites are not being replaced. Democrats just hope they're outnumbered. Cupp lit into "far-right wing media" (this mostly means Fox) and how "it stirs up racial animus, ethnic animus, religious animus. That is the intended effect of turning...
  • Social Media is Destroying Mental Health, and it’s Far Worse Than We Think

    The advent of social media has brought a dilemma — we want the benefits it brings so badly, but at the same time it is destroying our mental health with all the hate and criticism. The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words may never hurt me,” has finally become outdated, because whoever coined it never predicted a constant barrage of hate 24/7, seven days a week. Our bodies aren’t meant to handle this level of insults and criticism, which increases with more “friends” and platforms (Are they really friends if they’re constantly criticizIng you, bringing...

    Back in the old days, newspapers assigned reporters to beats such as Congress, the Supreme Court, the Pentagon, and Health and Human Services. Now it seems like the new beats are about covering threats, foreign and domestic -- ideological threats. So, the New York Times has a "climate" department. Michael Bender was recently hired to report on "Trumpism," and the Times is seeking a political reporter on "right-wing media."

    I love Wikipedia. I donated thousands of dollars to the Wikimedia Foundation. Before Wikipedia, all we had were printed encyclopedias -- out of date by the time we bought them. Then libertarian Jimmy Wales came up with a web-based, crowd-sourced encyclopedia. Crowd-sourced? A Britannica editor called Wikipedia "a public restroom." But Wales won the battle. Britannica's encyclopedias are no longer printed. Congratulations to Wales. But recently I learned that Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger now says Wikipedia's political pages have turned into leftist "propaganda." That's upsetting. Leftists took over the editing? Sadly, yes. I checked it out. All editing is done...

    Far-right wing website InfoWars on Sunday filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas in the face of multiple defamation lawsuits. Chapter 11 bankruptcy procedures put a hold on all civil litigation matters and allow companies to prepare turnaround plans while remaining operational. Alex Jones, founder of InfoWars, was found liable for damages in a trio of lawsuits last year filed after he falsely claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax. Jones claimed the shooting, in which 20 children and six school employees were shot dead...
  • From Time’s “Is God Dead?” in 1966 to the New York Times’ Call to “Give Up God” Today

    On April 8, 1966, the pictureless front cover of Time Magazine asked a bold and direction question: “Is God Dead?” This was just two days before Easter Sunday, and in the decades that followed, it became increasingly common for anti-God, anti-Jesus, anti-Bible essays to be featured in various secular publications at this time of year. Now, in keeping with this anti-God attitude during this sacred season, an April 15 op-ed piece for the New York Times was headlined, “In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God.” How deeply sensitive for the Times to post this anti-God essay...

    Whenever Barack 0bama grants an interview to one of his adorers in the media, one who arrives bathed in the glow of servility, everyone should be reminded that this is a major reason why people don't trust the media. In every interview, 0bama is treated as a global celebrity and as the wisest of wise men. One can understand a journalist offering more tender inquiries to an ex-president, but there is no difference in tenderness between now and during his presidency. Look no further than NBC's 0bama interview by weatherman Al Roker, which aired on April 12-13. "Scrutiny" or "accountability"...
  • Liberals Are Rather Shameless on Ketanji vs. Kavanaugh

    The shamelessness of liberal politicians and journalists is displayed by their unique outrage at the treatment of Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, as if everyone forgot the smearing of Brett Kavanaugh with unsubstantiated sexual allegations, including teenage gang rape. The Washington Post editorial board was roundly roasted for claiming, "Republicans boast they have not pulled a Kavanaugh. In fact, they've treated Ketanji Brown Jackson worse." Leftist celebrity activists like George Takei ranted at Sen. Tom Cotton for suggesting Jackson would have defended the Nazis at Nuremberg (like she defended the terrorist suspects at Guantanamo, even after her days as...

    On Monday’sTucker Carlson Tonight, Kyle Rittenhouse unveiled The Media Accountability Project, a new group dedicated to creating consequences for those who spread defamatory lies about the young man acquitted of murder charges last fall. Rittenhouse said that he and his attorneys plan to sue a host of politicians, journalists, and celebrities for their dishonest attacks on his character. A jury of Rittenhouse’s peers on November 19 found him innocent by way of self-defense in three shootings, two fatal, during Left-wing race riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Since then, many have lied about Rittenhouse and the deadly incident in which he was...

    Donald Trump-obsessed journalists can't help but notice some "cracks" in his "cult." Sen. Mitch McConnell declared the Jan. 6 riot was a "violent insurrection," and former Vice President Mike Pence proclaimed "Trump was wrong" about insisting Pence could overturn the Electoral College. One can question whether these statements are really "new," since they echo in sentiment what these men said on the day of the riot. McConnell was moved to repeat himself by strange language in a Republican National Committee statement suggesting the Jan. 6 committee was persecuting "ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse." Rioting is never legitimate political...

    Source: Twitter, Jill BidenOne of the memorable scenes in the 1993 movie "Dave" involved the president and first lady walking their dog in front of the cameras and promptly dumping him on staff when they walked into the White House. Having a pet is an easy way to get positive press that "humanizes" any politician, so almost every president does it -- and milks it. For example, there was Socks the cat, who came in with the Clintons in 1993. Then the Clintons added Buddy the dog at the end of 1997, weeks before the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke. Hillary...

    As talking heads on cable TV obsessed all weekend over the pending African-American female Supreme Court nominee—once Joe Biden’s handlers reveal to him who she will be—overlooked in the fracas is National Public Radio’s latest taxpayer-funded blunder involving the High Court. In mid-January, NPR Legal Affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reported—incorrectly—that Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor who has diabetes “did not feel safe” while sitting so close to people who were unmasked. Specifically, Tonenberg singled-out Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch who typically is seated near Sotomayor. The NPR veteran added that a “request” had been made for all justices to be masked when...

    CNN anchor Brianna Keilar is hosting a temporary program pompously titled "Democracy In Peril." On Jan. 18, Keilar huffed: "We can't discuss the tsunami of disinformation, jeopardizing American democracy, without talking about the mothership, Fox." On the very same day, NPR Supreme Court reporter Nina Totenberg aired a story claiming that Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch was callously ignoring requests from Chief Justice John Roberts to wear a mask during oral arguments in deference to diabetes-suffering colleague Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Fox News reporter Shannon Bream, using a different source, appeared on "Special Report with Bret Baier" and announced it was...

    Brian Williams, dismissed as "NBC Nightly News" anchor in 2015 for serial embellishment and lying, has decided to walk away from his MSNBC show "The 11th Hour." CNN's Brian Stelter, from a competing network, previewed the last show: "There's no word on what the Thursday finale will entail, but here's hoping for a sendoff befitting his position." Williams should be sent off with a lump of coal. Stelter wasn't quite as bad as one of his favorite Sunday-show guests, journalism professor and former Baltimore Sun reporter David Zurawik. "I have separation anxiety about Brian Williams leaving at 11:00 because it...

    This past Thursday, YouGov released a poll showing that 76% of Democrats thought Kyle Rittenhouse was guilty of homicide. Only 5% believed that he was not guilty. Similarly, 69% of blacks thought he was guilty, and only 6% felt that he wasn’t. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote on Twitter that the verdict is a “heartbreaking miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ.” President Biden, who famously called Rittenhouse a white supremacist, also expressed Democrats’ anger: “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned,...

    Beauty is only skin deep, but in the case of the NBC News race-baiting host ironically named Joy Reid, every bit of her is ugly. She finds race everywhere, especially when it’s not there. It’s her brand, and hate is her medium – her sculptor’s clay. She works in racism the way Van Gogh used paints or Hunter Biden uses crack, it’s where she thrives and all she brings to the table. Inside and out, Reid is the worst person on cable news, and NBC News, which employs her, Comcast, which owns NBC Universal, and every Comcast customer pays her...

    Shhh … hear that? It’s silence at CNN. Deafening silence. With all the noise about race – CRT, antiracism, blah, blah, blah – there was none of the usual jubilation over the history-making of the first black lieutenant governor-elect of Virginia, Winsome Sears. No TV profile with movie music weaving through the sentimental story-telling. No specials with Tom Hanks voiceovers. Nothing. Wait! I hear something. It’s Van Jones. Yep, here we go … he’s about to comment on the Youngkin-Sears win. “The stakes are high. When this election is over in Virginia, we will know … have we seen the...

    Joe Biden—or more likely his behind-the-scenes handlers who tell him what to say and do—has nominated Jessica Rosenworcel to become the first female chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Biden as always read off the Teleprompter to tout his latest “historic first” as a champion for Internet and Cable connectivity for all. Chances are, however, Rosenworcel will be just another Washington insider mope passing through the revolving door of the FCC without making much actual “history.” But she could break that cycle if she’d take a long overdue run at placing oversight of cable tv networks under the same FCC...

    Democrats comparing the Capitol Protests to the horrors of 9/11/01 and accusing patriotic Americans of being threats and terrorists is pathetic, dangerous and belies their long patronage to terrorist enemies of our county. They conveniently forget that theCapitol was attacked by theMarxist Weather Underground in 1971 and in 1954 ya Puerto Rican Revolutionary group, pre-curser to the Rican Armed Forces for National Liberation (“FALN”). I was an eye witness to the carnage of 9/11, the murder of cousin Steve Schlag and 3,000 other innocent souls. January 6 was nothing like those meticulously planned attacks on civilians them when hundreds jumped...
