  • Beware Those Hysterical Historians

    01/20/2021 4:05:55 AM PST · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | January 20, 2021 | Tim Graham
    Liberals love to insist they're on the "right side of history," and their confidence crests in the liberal dominance among historians. Just as the liberal media dominate our evaluation of day-to-day developments, liberals count on their historians to dominate our evaluation of the decades behind us. It's not just historians but our taxpayer-funded storytellers, like the insufferable PBS documentarian Ken Burns. On the day before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, NPR's "Morning Edition" presented him as an American treasure with no partisan bias. So, skip over the propaganda film on Ted Kennedy he made for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which...
  • NPR Touts Biden’s Promise to Advance Transgender Agenda

    The swearing-in this week of Sarah McBride, the first transgender woman to become a member of the Delaware State Senate, inspired taxpayer-funded National Public Radio (NPR) to interview Imara Jones, a transgender woman who rejects the assertion that there are two biological sexes. Jones runs the TransLash Media website, and her resume includes being the recipient of the Open Society Foundations Soros Equality Fellowship in 2019, a $100,000 grant for an 18-month fellowship. Jones praised President-elect Joe Biden for his public rejection of two biological sexes and embrace of gender identity, instead. “And I think that we need to have...

    NPR was roasted on social media Wednesday after fawning over Pete Buttigieg, President-elect Joe Biden's pick for transportation secretary, after famously refusing to cover the Hunter Biden scandal. "Pete Buttigieg, President-elect Biden's pick for transportation secretary, said he has ‘a personal love of transportation,’ recounting train trips on Amtrak while in college, and said he proposed to his now-husband, Chasten, in an airport terminal," NPR Politics sent from its verified account.

    In the Coronado National Memorial — where conquistador Francisco Vázquez de Coronado entered what is now Arizona — contractors are pulverizing the wilderness in a rush to put up as many miles of border wall as possible before the Trump administration vacates Washington. They're dynamiting mountainsides and bulldozing pristine desert for a barrier the incoming Biden administration is expected to cancel... This is one of 29 construction projects being performed by 13 different contractors from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas. In Arizona, contractors have added shifts — they're working all night long under light towers to meet Trump's goal of...

  • Democrats Turn On Minority Voters For Discovering Trump Isn’t The Real Racist

    The Federalist ^ | November 10, 2020 | Helen Raleigh,
    One of the biggest stories in this election is how President Trump, whom leftists and their media allies have constantly called a “racist,” made great inroads with minorities. The left is clearly shocked. Rather than humbly spending some time on self-reflection, however, they are doubling down on identity politics by blaming minority Trump voters. Since Election Day, leftists have been attacking minority Trump voters from two angles. First, they claim minorities who voted for Trump are “white” voters who shouldn’t be classified as minorities. This nonsense is nothing new. Prior to the election, Joe Biden famously said black voters who...

    National Public Radio (NPR) does not serve the American taxpayers who are paying its bills. Most recently, NPR did its part to shield Joe Biden from the fallout of the Biden family pay-for-access corruption scheme. That’s nothing new. NPR has long served as the leftwing progressive Democrat Party’s propaganda arm. Back in 2016, for example, NPR shilled for the disastrous nuclear deal pushed by the Obama administration, after receiving funding from a pro-nuclear deal advocacy group. It is long past time to end the gravy train and defund NPR. On October 22nd, NPR’s public editor rationalized NPR’s decision to...

    National Post ^ | Oct. 28, 2020 | Rex Murphy
    All National Public Radio hosts talk as if they are standing in a nursery, afraid to wake the baby up, or trying to pacify a distempered hound. Their soft tones, slow utterance and hushed breathlessness are meant to convey that NPR is a sanctum, a cathedral of reason and restraint, and that what comes via such delicately modulated, church-whisper voices must be true. Nowhere was that voice so needed than in the extraordinary statement it put out about the Hunter Biden story, which has already been banned by Facebook and Twitter: “We don’t want to waste our time on stories...

    nIn a sane world, one ruled by reason, logic and the rule of law, there would be no reason to be nervous about President Trump’s reelection. But we live in a make-believe world created by a deceitful media cabal that has run up a 4 year track record of biased reporting which has racked up a cumulative 92% negative rate of coverage of the President, his policies and his supporters. But worse than the partisan coverage is the flat out squelching of stories/information that would provide voters with vital information that, yes, could sway the outcome of an election. Even...

    Treisman is not a Trumper, but one of the Left, a supporter of Bernie Sanders. The HuffPo, like NPR, doesn’t bother to inform its readers about this at all. Buried in the fifteenth paragraph of the Washington Post story on Treisman is the salient fact that this psychopath himself explained that he wanted to kill Biden in order to “save bernie [sic].” Treisman wrote on the Internet platform iFunny: “If anything I have to save bernie.” Then he wondered on the same platform: “should I kill joe biden?” But most of those who are imagining a MAGA hat on Treisman...

    “We have to make sure — this will sound political but we have to make sure that the Constitution wins the next presidential election,” Pelosi said at an event at Cornell University’s Institute of Politics & Global Affairs. “We can’t be worrying about well, how long is this going to take? Well, that will take as long as it does. And we will press the case so that in the court of public opinion. People will know what is — is right. But we cannot accept a second term for Donald Trump if we are going to be faithful to...
  • NPR Defines Hunter Biden News as a Waste of Time

    "Public broadcasting" is a comical phrase. Its audience is not the public. It is the left. PBS and NPR don't care one iota what everyone else thinks...even if everyone else pays a chunk of their budget through taxes. On the morning before the last presidential debate, Kelly McBride, NPR's "public editor" -- the person who is supposed to bring outside perspectives from the public into the NPR bubble -- tweeted, "Why haven't you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post's Hunter Biden story?" Below a link to her newsletter was a quote in bold type from Terence Samuel,...

    A tweet from the National Public Radio Public (NPR) Editor on Thursday — on the day of the presidential debate — explained why the taxpayer-funded news outlet has been ignoring the growing scandal surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and the family’s business dealings in China. “Why haven’t you seen any stories from NPR about the NY Post’s Hunter Biden story,” the tweet said. “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste listeners’ and readers’ time on that stories that are just pure distractions.”...

    WASHINGTON — The nation’s top general declined on Sunday to endorse either of the sudden announcements on Afghan troop withdrawals that came out of the White House last week. In an interview with NPR, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the agreement reached with Afghan and Taliban officials to leave Afghanistan was “conditions based,” adding that the United States would “responsibly” end the war.

    Yesterday when I drove up to the country to visit my mother, I listened to NPR until I couldn’t take it anymore. There was a story about black Mormons. Normally I would have found that compelling, given my interest in religion. The Mormon religion used to be formally racist, but changed its teaching. What is it like to live as a black Mormon? That’s a story that interests me. Or normally would, but I swear, I turned off the radio. Why? It had nothing to do with the black Mormons. It had to do with NPR. I thought: they’re only...

    These days, Miriam Robles spends a lot of time on the phone. In between her day job as an environmental justice organizer at Mi Familia Vota, a Latino political advocacy group that opposes President Trump, Robles phone-banks to register new voters. One new voter she's worked with is her 18-year-old brother, Kevin. "I was super excited to get him registered," she says. "I helped him fill out his primary ballot and made sure that he applied for [Arizona's] Permanent Early Voting List. For him, he is looking at this fiercely as something that he could do for his family." Robles...

    My Facebook page is awash in “I told you so” posts from liberals pointing to a study purportedly showing that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota was a “super spreader” event that resulted in an additional 250,000 Wuhan virus cases. What they don’t realize is that there’s not a word of truth in that “study.” It’s made up entirely of extrapolations from distantly related and erroneous facts. As of September 2, NPR was reporting that, more than two weeks after an event that attracted almost 500,000 people, there were over 260 cases tied to the Sturgis Rally. (The phrase...

    National Public Radio (NPR) conducted an interview on Sunday comparing President Donald Trump to Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and tied the president to the kind of conspiracy theories that led to the creation of the Ku Klux Klan. Tax-payer-funded NPR also implied that former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush also embraced similar fascist ideology: Historians have noted similarities between Donald Trump and Mussolini since before the 2016 election. Some of the racial justice protesters this summer have said they are fighting fascism in the form of President Trump. And the presence of antifa — anti-fascist — protesters at...

    In an effort to contrast himself with Trump, Democratic presidential nominee former Vice-President Joe Biden ventured into riot-torn Kenosha to show off his "healing" technique. He started out by blaming Trump for the violence tearing apart the city and other cities throughout America. "Turn on any TV station and you'll find commentators condemning Trump for dividing this country," Biden said. "The opinion is almost unanimous that Trump is a divider and not a uniter. In virtually every city people are crying out for racial justice, but police are slaughtering black men in numbers that defy belief. Struggling to be heard,...
