  • Republicans Barely Won the House. Now Can They Run It?

    The New York Times via Yahoo ^ | November 17, 3022 | By Carl Hulse
    WASHINGTON — Republicans managed to make their victory in the House seem like a loss by underperforming so badly. But while they did not win control by anywhere near the margin that they anticipated, they did win. And in the House, even the barest majority can work its will if it can hold together to produce 218 votes. The main question going forward is whether Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, who was nominated Tuesday to lead the new Republican majority, can achieve the unity necessary to perform fundamental tasks such as funding the government, or whether unyielding far-right members will...

    Former President Donald Trump has been under attack since he began stumping for GOP candidates ahead of the midterms. Those incendiary remarks have gone into overdrive since Election Day on Wednesday, even from Republican supporters who spoke out against him after he referred to Florida governor Ron DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious” during a final rally pre-midterm rally in Pennsylvania.Throughout the election, Trump has been a top supporter of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, which earned his criticism, most notably from one of his biggest media adversaries, Maggie Hagaman of the New York Times. After Oz’s stunning loss to John...
  • Media preps for 2022 election with focus on democracy issues

    The Associated Press ^ | By DAVID BAUDER
    NEW YORK (AP) — Time was, a television reporter assigned to “democracy issues” would have a quiet time on election night sets, occasionally popping up to talk about broken voting machines at a polling place or two. That’s not the case in 2022. Between election deniers and threats to voting rights, news organizations have emphasized the beat. That will continue next Tuesday, with coverage plans for the midterms rounding into shape. CBS News will have its first-ever “Democracy Desk” to look at those issues and how law enforcement is dealing with threats. NBC News’ “Vote Watch Unit” is looking at...

    The New York Times' stock is down 40% in the past year, drawing the attention of former President Donald Trump on Tuesday."Wow! The Failing New York Times is really failing now: Down more than 40%, and heading lower. Fake news!" Trump wrote Tuesday on Truth Social.Trump's rebuke also comes after the Times managed to suggest Trump's 49% support in its latest poll for the top 2024 GOP presidential candidate means "half" of GOP voters were "ready to leave Trump behind."A look under the headline dripping with activism did not mention Trump is actually a 24-point favorite over his closest challenger,...
  • NYT signals to Dems anti-crime platform is permissible — if only to beat Republicans

    The New York Times has developed a twofold relationship with the Democratic Party. The broadsheet’s primary role is spreading propaganda, a duty the paper embraces with gusto on both its news and opinion pages by amplifying far-left talking points and denouncing anyone who disagrees, including resistant Dems. Its other role is helping to set the party’s platform by seizing on social and cultural developments and shaping them into a political agenda. The 1619 Project is the ultimate example, with the error-ridden lead essay (which won a Pulitzer Prize!) being a template for indoctrinating school children with critical race theory and...

    New York Times ^ | 26th May 2022 | David E. Sanger
    Henry Kissinger, the 99-year old former secretary of state, suggested that Ukraine would likely have to give up some territory in a negotiated settlement, though he added that “ideally the dividing line should be a return to the status quo” before the invasion, which included the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the seizure of parts of the Donbas. “Pursuing the war beyond that point would not be about the freedom of Ukraine, but a new war against Russia itself,’’ Mr. Kissinger concluded. Almost immediately, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine accused Mr. Kissinger of appeasement, retorting angrily that “I...
  • From Time’s “Is God Dead?” in 1966 to the New York Times’ Call to “Give Up God” Today

    Townhall.com ^ | April 18, 2022 | Michael Brown
    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...
  • Before Elections, Georgia Republicans Again Consider Voting Restrictions

    A sweeping 2021 law drew a legal complaint from the Justice Department. Legislators in the state are considering several new measures focused on ballot access and fraud investigations. ATLANTA — Butch Miller, a Republican leader of the Georgia State Senate, is running for lieutenant governor and faces a tough fight this spring against a primary opponent backed by former President Donald J. Trump. So perhaps it is no surprise that Mr. Miller, a co-sponsor of a sweeping and restrictive state voting law last year, has once again jumped into the fray, promoting a new measure to prohibit the use of...

    There is a school of thought that holds that if Donald Trump sweeps back into power in 2024, or else loses narrowly but then plunges the United States into the kind of constitutional crisis he sought in 2020, the officially nonpartisan news media will have been an accessory to Trumpism. It will have failed to adequately emphasize Trump’s threat to American democracy, chosen a disastrous evenhandedness over moral clarity and covered President Biden (or perhaps Vice President Kamala Harris) like a normal politician instead of the republic’s last best hope.
  • Nolte: NYT Says Unvaccinated Kids Must ‘Eat Quickly’ on Thanksgiving

    The far-left New York Times is telling its readers that unvaccinated kids must “eat quickly” during Thanksgiving and wear masks while not eating. That was the Times’ sociopathic advice for a reader dumb enough to ask the Times for advice. “If our child, 9, and a cousin, 10, have each received one dose of the vaccine two weeks prior to Thanksgiving,” the reader asked, “is it safe for us to eat indoors? There will be about 20 guests, all vaccinated, and the 65 and older crowd have all received boosters?” Here’s the Times’ sadistic reply: I’m glad to hear that...

    At least once a week, a team of President Biden’s top advisers meet on Zoom to address the nation’s supply chain crisis. They discuss ways to relieve backlogs at America’s ports, ramp up semiconductor production for struggling automakers and swell the ranks of America’s truck drivers. The conversations are aimed at one goal: taming accelerating price increases that are hurting the economic recovery, unsettling American consumers and denting Mr. Biden’s popularity. An inflation surge is presenting a fresh challenge for Mr. Biden, who for months insisted that rising prices were a temporary hangover from the pandemic recession and would quickly...

    Price gains are shooting higher across many advanced economies as consumer demand, shortages and other pandemic-related factors combine to fuel a burst of inflation. The spike has become a source of annoyance among consumers and worry among policymakers who are concerned that rapid price gains might last. It is one of the main factors central bankers are looking at as they decide when — and how quickly — to return monetary policy to normal. Most policymakers believe that today’s rapid inflation will fade. That expectation may be reinforced by the fact that many economies are experiencing a price pop in...

    Former President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday sued three tech giants — Facebook, Twitter and Google — and the firms’ chief executives after the platforms took various steps to ban him or block him from posting. Mr. Trump, speaking from his Bedminster, N.J., golf club, announced that he would serve as the lead plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit, arguing that he has been censored wrongfully by the tech companies. Speaking about “freedom of speech” and the First Amendment — which applies to the government, not to private-sector companies — Mr. Trump called his lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday in...

    Critics slammed The New York Times on Sunday for an article that suggested the American flag has become a symbol of divisiveness. The New York Times published an article on Saturday titled: 'A Fourth of July Symbol of Unity That May No Longer Unite.' In the article, Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Maslin Nir examined how the American flag 'once a unifying symbol' has become a divisive symbol in the United States along political party lines.
  • A Coronavirus Epidemic Hit 20,000 Years Ago, New Study Finds

    06/26/2021 6:26:21 PM PDT · by algore · 42 replies
    Researchers have found evidence that a coronavirus epidemic swept East Asia some 20,000 years ago and was devastating enough to leave an evolutionary imprint on the DNA of people alive today. The new study suggests that an ancient coronavirus plagued the region for many years, researchers say. The finding could have dire implications for the Covid-19 pandemic if it’s not brought under control soon through vaccination. Four other coronaviruses can also infect people, but they usually cause only mild colds. Scientists did not directly observe these coronaviruses becoming human pathogens, so they have relied on indirect clues to estimate when...
  • ‘JUST DISTURBING’ NYT Writer Says She Was Triggered By American Flags in New York

    06/08/2021 1:55:38 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 51 replies
    There’s no doubt that the drive-by media considers Trump supporters to be a bunch of gun-toting, Bible-clinging, flag-waving deplorables. They despise us. They despise our God. They despise American greatness. The media propagandists are the disciples of former President Barack Hussein Obama, the man who promised to fundamentally transform America. So it’s not much of a surprise that MSNBC contributor Mara Gay announced on national television that she was offended and triggered by the presence of an American flag. Ms. Gay, who is also a member of the editorial board of The New York Times, said she was “disturbed” to...

    The New York Times, The Washington Post and NBC News walked back their reporting about FBI's communication with President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani regarding Russia. The Washington Post was the first to report on Thursday that Giuliani was warned that he was the target of a Russian influence campaign last year. The newspaper, citing people familiar with the matter, also reported that One America News (OANN) was given similar warning. But the Post issued a correction on Saturday saying that it removed assertions that Giuliani and OANN had received such warnings. "An earlier version of this story, published Thursday,...
