  • Bezos Blasts ‘Disinformation’-Spreading Biden Over Latest Inflation Blame “Misdirection”

    The constant gaslighting of America over whose fault the soaring cost of living just went to ’11’ on the ‘do you think we are all f**king stupid’ scale. As Matt Margolis points out, it has been a wild ride for the blame-shifting until now… In the course of a year, we’ve gone from “inflation will be transitory,” to “inflation is a good thing,” to “inflation started under Trump,” to “it’s Putin’s price hike.” Polls show that no one was buying the blame-Putin strategy, so Biden and the Democrats are now accusing oil companies of price gouging. And now the blame...
  • WaPo Columnist: Roe Reversal Is a 9/11-Style Attack on Our 'Social Fabric' or Something

    Did I read that right? Did we really go there? Does a liberal writer think that overturning Roe v. Wade is just like the destruction of the World Trade Center? The return of sanity to the abortion question is just like the 9/11 terror attacks? We all knew the Biden White House was doling out crack pipes. I just didn’t know people would be hitting the stuff this quickly, but The Washington Post seems to be high as a kite on this one. Liberal America is in full-blown meltdown mode over a leaked opinion in the Dobbs case. The Supreme...

    The Washington Post is out with some amazing reporting that says President Joe Biden’s recent use of “MAGA” and “Ultra MAGA” to insult former President Donald Trump “was the result of a six-month research effort by liberal groups”: Biden's attempt to reappropriate "MAGA" and "ultra MAGA" was the result of a six-month research effort by liberal groups. My latest w @michaelscherer. https://t.co/foVeidRgZn — Ashley Parker (@AshleyRParker) May 13, 2022 From the Washington Post: Biden’s attempt to appropriate the “MAGA” brand as a political attack was hardly accidental. It arose from a six-month research project to find the best way to...

    Arab-American "Palestinian-journalist" Barghouti calls for the end [of the State] of Israel: 'Can not exist beyond 2022' [WP "columnist"] Mariam Barghouti, an American-Palestinian journalist, tweeted the following on her Twitter account last night: "Yes. Call for the end of Israel. It did not exist before 1948 and cannot exist after 2022... " Mariam Barghouti is originally from Ramallah, and as it can be deduced from her name she belongs to the infamous Barghouti clan. Her columns are published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, BBC, Al Jazeera and more. In 2014, Barghouti was arrested by the...

    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that there was a path to prosecute Mark Meadows, former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff. Discussing a Washington Post article headlined, “Inside Mark Meadows’s final push to keep Trump in power,” anchor Nicolle Wallace asked, “We know that he knew that there was no evidence of voter fraud. We know that because Bill Barr told him. What do you think Meadows’ sort of body of conduct that could end up under scrutiny really is, Claire?”

    President Joe Biden has given Amazon, for which billionaire Jeff Bezos serves as chairman of the board, a $10 billion federal contract despite having pledged to American union workers not to reward corporations accused of union-busting tactics. For years, Amazon has been accused of trying to prevent its warehouse workers across the United States from unionizing amid reports that the corporation has put its workforce in dangerous scenarios under ruthless shipping quotas.

    Johnny the Walrus is a best-selling children’s book written by the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh. The book is a terrific satire about adults who insist that children can be “transgender” and go so far as to put them on hormones and even have surgeries done on them, instead of letting them go through puberty normally and seeking psychotherapy to treat their distress. Many of the parents who do this to their children appear to be suffering from some kind of attention disorder that drives them to seek the limelight while they mutilate their own children, like the parents of Jazz...

    For the past few months, Colorado state Rep. Brianna Titone (D) has kept a close eye on the bills neighboring states have been proposing — bills that aim to curb the rights of transgender children from participating in youth sports, accessing bathrooms and getting gender-affirming health care. There’s Arizona, Oklahoma and Utah, which all passed laws barring trans kids — with a focus on girls, in particular — from playing on teams that align with their gender identity. In Kansas, a similar bill passed the state Senate, but was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly. And in Idaho, lawmakers sought...

    Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine carried an article on black conservative Herschel Walker’s campaign for Senate, and you could tell it would accentuate the negative. It was headlined: Herschel Walker’s Longest Run For this Trump-endorsed candidate, does a troubled past even matter? In paragraph #4, freelancer John Rosengren reveals he’s not stalking the former star running back for a puff piece: I’m here, in part, because I want to see for myself if Walker’s campaign in Georgia reflects the nation’s new norm in post-Trumpian politics. Can enough celebrity sparkle and Trump rhetoric, coupled with some distortion of facts and often a...
  • Senator Bernie Sanders, 80, has not ruled out running for President AGAIN in 2024 if Biden, 79, is not on the Democratic ticket

    The 80-year-old Sen. Bernie Sanders has not ruled out running for president in 2024, should President Joe Biden not seek re-election. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sanders' 2020 Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir wrote a memo telling allies that the Vermont progressive would consider a third bid for the White House. 'In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind,' Shakir wrote. The 79-year-old Biden has long said he'll run for re-election - though recent...

    A group of 26 activist organizations and NGOs signed a letter to companies who advertise on Twitter, warning them to reconsider if Elon Musk makes changes. Musk has pledged to lift the 'censorship' of Twitter: critics worry that he will give free rein to those trafficking in hate speech and dangerous scientific theories. The letter writers said that Musk 'will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety' They wrote: 'Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached.' Musk replied, wanting to know who was behind the 26 groups signing the...

    I am an assertive driver. Not aggressive, because that word is too aggressive. But I am decisive with speed. Still, if I’m attempting to merge and someone lets me in, I will roll down my window and wave to them. If it’s raining, I will just have a wet hand. I pray before meals. Not every meal. But meals with meat. I don’t ride city buses anymore, but when I did, I wouldn’t just give up my seat for women, elderly people and those who appear to have a physical disability, I wouldn’t even sit if the bus was packed...

    EXCERPT: A physicist trained at Caltech and Cambridge, he sees immortality as a mathematical challenge. To solve it requires first asking why we age. “The canonical answer,” Fink explained, “is that aging is inevitable and a fundamental condition of life.” Every organism degrades over time and eventually breaks down. End of story. “But the story’s much weirder than we think,” Fink said. In a recent paper, he used math to demonstrate that “aging can be favored by natural selection.” That’s a shocking insight: It means that the first forms of life, which started billions of years ago, likely didn’t die....

    To say that the United States’ foreign policy situation has shifted dramatically in the past couple of years would be an understatement. While the world is largely united in its opposition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, America’s individual relationships with some countries have grown increasingly rocky even as former rivals in other parts of the world seem to be on the mend. For one example, look no further than the recent rapprochement between Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Just this week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Saudi Arabia for the first time in five years, taking meetings with both Crown...

    Many liberals who call themselves journalists, inspired by Harvard's Nieman Lab, are now publicly calling for ditching objectivity in their profession in favor of what they call "solidarity for social justice" as their goal. Not only are many making no attempt to hide their disdain for objectivity, they are loudly urging it. Among them is Washington Post Margaret Sullivan who is not shy about expressing her extreme antipathy towards political diversity.Therefore when she wrote on Saturday that the New York Times managing editor, Joe Kahn, would succeed Dean Baquet as executive editor of that alleged national treasure in June, her...

    As Elon Musk attempts to purchase Twitter, many journalists and political commentators have viewed the Tesla CEO's plans to take over the social media giant as detrimental, and have slammed the idea of billionaire ownership, yet several liberal media organizations are themselves owned by billionaires. The Washington Post Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post in 2016 for $250 million. The Atlantic Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs, became the majority owner of The Atlantic in 2017. TIME Marc Beinoff, the billionaire CEO of Salesforce, and his wife Lynne, purchased TIME in 2018 for $190...

    THE WASHINGTON POST:During eight appearances on Fox News and Fox Business Network in early January, Jack Keane was introduced several ways: as “a retired four-star general,” as the former “vice chief of staff for the U.S. Army,” and as Fox News’s “senior strategic analyst.”All of those are accurate descriptions. Keane is a distinguished veteran, having commanded American troops in such places as Somalia, Haiti and Bosnia. Fox employs him to provide analysis of national security and military operations, such as the unfolding hostilities between the United States and Iran.But another part of Keane’s résumé wasn’t mentioned: the former general is...
