  • Washington Post's Milbank Attacks Bernie Sanders as a 'Spoiler'

    Is Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank secretly working for the Trump 2020 campaign? The question has to be asked because Milbank is currently doing all he can to completely alienate Bernie Sanders supporters from the Democrat party and making it more likely that they won't be voting for Joe Biden, if he is the nominee, in November. So how is Milbank accomplishing this result? By severely castigating Bernie Sanders and labeling him a "spoiler." Milbank performed this favor for the Trump campaign on Wednesday by whining, "The Bernie Sanders spoiler campaign begins." Milbank even went so far as to rub...
  • Washington Post Blames Chief Justice John Roberts For the "Impeachment Mess"

    Who is to blame for the impeachment of President Trump? It has to be either Trump or the House that impeached him. Or maybe a combination of the two.But the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank claims that, somehow, the “mess” is Chief Justice Roberts’s fault. Milbank is the Post’s clown prince. He’ll say anything, usually with as much snark as he can muster, to try to score a point against one of his boogeymen — a class that includes anyone who stands against his leftism.In this case, Milbank has outdone himself.Why is the U.S. Chief Justice responsible for the impeachment mess?...

    White House denies limiting columnist's access under new '50 percent' rule Getty Images The White House is pushing back on a claim by Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank who said a press pass he held for more than two decades was revoked for being a Trump critic. No ones access is being limited, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Wednesday night in response a Milbank column published by The Post earlier in the day. The back-and-forth comes after the White House announced new rules regarding the number of reporters who are granted hard passes, which allows a...

    As he prepared for his presidential run over the last year or so, a hawkish Sen. Ted Cruz has said U.S. policy in the Middle East and elsewhere is a mess because of President Obamas weakness particularly his failure to enforce his own red line after the Syrian regime used chemical weapons. A critical reason for Putins aggression has been President Obamas weakness, the senator said in a typical appearance, on ABC News last year. Youd better believe that Putin sees that in Syria, Cruz added. Obama draws a red line and ignores the red line. This takes quite...

    Mitt Romney: Your country needs you. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has been reluctant to announce a primary challenge to Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, the longest-serving Republican senator in history. But America needs Romney to step up, to restore dignity to the Senate -- and to save the country from the embarrassment Hatch has become. Hatch, long the picture of conservative rectitude, was once a conscientious legislator, even partnering with Ted Kennedy when he thought poor kids were getting a raw deal. But Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore, has undergone a grotesque transformation this year, his 84th...

    Allow me a moment of pride: The hot new criticism of my fellow Jews is that we dont complain enough. Really. A host of pundits, concerned about President Trumps baffling unwillingness to single out neo-Nazis for criticism, are turning to the American Jewish community and pleading: Would it kill you to maybe kvetch a bit? The idea we havent protested is bonkers, but more important, the lefts campaign to get all Jews to publicly denounce Trump has taken a profoundly dangerous and ugly turn. And it needs to stop. On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported that a coalition of left-leaning...

    Waaaaah! Dana Milbank is really really angry at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and if he doesn't do just want Dana wants him to do then he will be shunned by liberals forever and ever. Milbank went into full petulant fury mode on this topic in his May 12 Washington Post column in which he angrily declared how betrayed he feels over the fact that Rosenstein did not follow the approved liberal narrative on the James Comey firing. Not only did Rosenstein commit the heresy of issuing a memo listing the reasons for firing Comey which all liberals wanted to...

    Washington Post journalist Dana Milbank on Thursday, Barack Obama is comparable to George Washington and a fictional Disney Demigod. Lamenting the fact that the outgoing President isnt getting enough credit, the columnist referenced the 2016 film Moana and quoted from song lyrics where the deity Maui bragged about how amazing he is: What can I say, except youre welcome for the tides, the sun, the sky? Hey, its okay, its okay. Youre welcome.

    An international law firm has ceased their sponsorship of student activities at Harvard Law School following an incident in which some of the money it donated for the students was used to pay for an pro-Palestinian event by a student group on campus. The student group "Justice for Palestine" had used $500 from the fund to pay for pizza for students who participated in a "pro-Palestine" discussion that took place in the fall of 2015. Soon after, students were told by the University that the fund was no longer available for their use. The Toronto Star reported that the firm,...

    Yesterdays news became big news on the Fox News Channel last week when former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani brought up the name of President Barack Obamas childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. It was almost seven years to the day when we published our seminal piece about Davis, Obamas Communist Mentor. Davis was a member of the Communist Party and a suspected Soviet espionage agent. He was included in the FBIs security index, meaning that Davis could be arrested or detained in the event of a national emergency. The FBI file on Davis documents his anti-white and pro-Soviet views,...

    President Obama is not worried. And that is unnerving. British Prime Minister David Cameron presented to parliament on Monday the alarming conclusions of European leaders who had met in Brussels over the weekend: The European Council believes the creation of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria and the Islamist extremism and export of terrorism on which it is based is a direct threat to every European country. Cameron added: To confront the threat of Islamist extremism, we need a tough, intelligent, patient and comprehensive approach to defeat the terrorist threat at its source. We must use all the resources...

    Milbank implied to Al Sharpton that the GOP has not politically targeted HHS Secretary Sebelius because she is white During a segment on Thursday's Politics Nation with Al Sharpton, frequent guest Dana Milbank insinuated that the GOP only has issues with Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama because the GOP is racist. During a segment with Sharpton and MSNBC's Karen Finney about Kathleen Sebelius resigning, Milbank wondered why the Republicans on the Hill do not target her more considering she was the one who implemented Obamacare. Milbank stated, ... so let's compare Holder to Kathleen Sebelius, who...

    Yesterday, I confronted outgoing General Motors CEO Dan Akerson, the speaker at a National Press Club luncheon. At a press conference beforehand, and through the first question at the conclusion of his remarks, I requested that GM repay taxpayers the $10 billion in direct GM bailout costs. Akerson's refusal dominated much of the media coverage of the event. This was clearly not the story line that Akerson intended. In short, we happily stepped all over his message that the bailout is a success and that GM is back. The USA Today/Detroit Free Press story is headlined. "GM's CEO rejects repaying...

    In the real world, when you cover up four murders after the fact, you likely go to jail. In government, you retire with dignity and run for president with full media support. Up until yesterday, that was the Benghazi scenario following the death of four Americans including our ambassador to Libya. The Obama administration has lied, stonewalled, bullied, and intimidated the true marks of an open and transparent administration. And, with a few notable exceptions, the American media havent just let them get away it. Heck, theyve helped. Hill testimony of State Department whistleblowers might change that, but its...

    Its week two of the presidents charm offensive, and already there is dissension in the ranks. Jay Carney, the occasionally charming spokesman for the newly charming president, began his daily media briefing Monday with a smile, a sunny disposition and a bit of percussion on the lectern. Bum-ba-da-bum-bum, he drummed with his hands. Happy Monday! began Carney, wearing a festive yellow tie and striking a casual pose. Good afternoon. Thanks for being here for your White House briefing. Spring is here early. But it was not long before the White House press secretary was back in his winter of discontent....

Appearing on CNN's Reliable Sources, Milbank said, "The number of F-bombs being dropped by this White House, scholars are going to look in the national archives in 20 or 30 years and they're going to be shocked by the language that was coming out of this place" (video follows with transcript and commentary): HOWARD KURTZ, HOST: Is there...

    There are those who say that the tea party is fading in influence, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the movement is on the cusp of achieving what once seemed nearly impossible: keeping the Senate Democratic. A year ago, famed political handicapper Charlie Cook gave Republicans a 60 percent to 70 percent likelihood of capturing control of the Senate; now, he tells me the likelihood of it remaining Democratic is 60 percent. The switch in fortunes can be attributed to many causes a slate of lackluster Republican candidates high among them but one thing...

    For once, Harry Reid held his tongue. The Senate majority leader had agreed to participate in a conference call Monday afternoon with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar about renewable energy, but it was obvious that the questions would instead be about Reids own windiness, and his decision to go nuclear on Mitt Romney last week by suggesting that the Republican presidential candidate didnt pay taxes for 10 years. The calls moderator tried to direct reporters away from Reids constantly replenishing verbal energy, saying that the media are asked to focus their questions on todays announcement only. Yet even that was too...
