    A Virginia Antifa chapter has released a hit list of several conservative figures and journalists who will make an appearance at the 2nd Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia, on Monday. The chapter, called Antifa Seven Hills, created a list of what they call “known fascists and sympathizers,” which includes conservatives affiliated with Infowars like Owen Shroyer, journalists Mike Adams and Jacob Engels, veteran Joe Biggs, and even Trump insider Roger Stone.

    "Most of the big ‘investigations’ in the news in recent years have not been at all what they pretended to be. The sham investigations of Hillary’s email, or the Clinton Foundation, or Weiner’s laptop, or Uranium One, or Mueller’s witch hunt, or Huber’s big nothing, or the IG’s whitewash, or the Schiff-Pelosi charades, have all been premeditated deceptions." The investigations are political theater. The column explores three types of fake investigations.
  • MSNBC Host Openly Strategizes with Liberal Democrat: How Do 'We' Go After Bill Barr?

    No one doubts that the liberal media acts as an arm of the Democrat party. But MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian has now provided an absolutely brazen example of the phenomenon. Usually, they refrain from using the royal We when discussing Democrat strategy. Vossoughian subbed for Ari Melber on his MSNBC show The Beat on Thursday. Interviewing ultraliberal Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Vossoughian three times asked Raskin which was the best way that "we" should go after Attorney General Bill Barr and/or the Mueller report and testimony by Mueller. After Raskin called Barr's attitude "constitutionally intolerable," Vossoughian responded. "You’re bringing up...

  • Be Worried About What Leftists Have in Store For Us

    Donald Trump saved us from Hillary Clinton and the Leftist cabal in 2016. But they have a lot in store for us still. Like so many past victories won by the GOP and its supporters, a won battle is believed to be a won war. It’s not. I saw the same thing happen in 1980 when Ronald Reagan wiped out the Democrats and again in 1984. It was an electoral landslide like no other. Let’s also remember that Reagan was Governor of California and California voted for him in 1980 and 1984. Look at California today. If it’s one thing...

    Role reversal on today's Morning Joe? Joe Scarborough and Donny Deutsch took a hard line on Brett Kavanaugh. But Mika Brzezinski suggested that the statute of limitations serve as a guide to dealing with the accusations, and warned Dems against playing "dirty" on the Kavanaugh confirmation. [snip] Donny Deutsch took it a dramatic step further, declaring: "I believe Kavanaugh is dead at this point. I would be shocked if he was ever a Supreme Court Justice."

  • The Conway Conjecture: Morning Joe Makes Case Kellyanne is “Anonymous”

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Who’s “anonymous?” On today’s Morning Joe, several members of the panel made the case that “anonymous” is Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump. First up, John Heilemann made the following points in support of The Conway Conjecture: 1. The “perspicacious” wife of Charles Pierce of Esquire detected an “unmistakably feminine” tone to the op-ed. 2. Conway is “very cagey; she’s the kind of person who would find out that Mike Pence used the word ‘lodestar’ a lot, and put ‘lodestar’ in to try to pin it on Mike Pence.” 3. Trying to set herself up to be the Carville &...

    Collusion? You want to see some collusion? Check out CNN’s Alisyn Camerota this morning. She expressed reluctance in outing the anonymous author of yesterday’s New York Times op-ed. Camerota gave two reasons for her reluctance: [snip] 2. “I also am uncomfortable going too far in trying to out this person who wasn’t, clearly, ready to be outed, because this person argues that they are doing important work inside the White House or inside the administration and therefore doesn’t want to be outed right now.” Let’s break this down.

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    When it comes to condemning all things Trump-related, there’s rarely any daylight between Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. They are monolithically, some might say maniacally, united in their condemnation of The Donald. [snip] Scarborough accused Kavanaugh of having a “cold, callous heart” for failing to shake Fred Guttenberg’s hand, dismissing any innocent explanations of the moment. But Brzezinski gave Kavanaugh the benefit of the doubt, saying “no, I think his security people [intervened],” and “I just don’t” think his heart is that cold.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • WaPo’s Robinson: New Yorker Right to Dump Bannon Because He “Upset” Others

    09/04/2018 4:24:03 AM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 21 replies
    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Washington Post editor Eugene Robinson has defended the decision by David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, to disinvite Steve Bannon from its festival. On today’s Morning Joe, Robinson argued that Remnick “had no choice” because the invitation had “upset” the New Yorker’s staff, contributors and other participants, several of whom announced that they would not participate if Bannon did. Bannon has it right in calling Remnick’s reversal “gutless.” Remnick should have announced that even if there were no other participants, the festival would go forward with Bannon. That would not only have been gutsy, it would have led to...

    Is it the role of a network host to call out Ivanka Trump by name to pay for the visit of a heroine of the left? Alisyn Camerota apparently thinks so. Interviewing Lilly Ledbetter today, whose failed pay-discrimination lawsuit led to the passage of the Fair Pay Act named in her honor, Camerota mentioned that Ledbetter had reached out to Ivanka Trump. Ledbetter said that Ivanka had responded saying she’d be glad to meet, but that Ledbetter hasn’t been able to get to DC to meet because “I don’t have the financial situation to buy a plane ticket and stay...
  • Richard Painter: Lawyers Helping Trump Fire Mueller Will “End Up Making License Plates In Jail”

    Richard Painter has got to be the strangest dude in political TV. Just listen to the guy. Born in Philadelphia, went to a fancy prep school, degrees from Harvard and Yale, speaks with some kind of strange lockjaw. Anyhow, on MSNBC tonight, he did his best to discourage top lawyers from assisting President Trump. Painter threatened that any lawyer who helped Trump fire Robert Mueller would “end up making license plates . . . in jail.” Specifically, Painter tried to dissuade Emmet Flood, who currently serves as outside counsel to Trump, from replacing Don McGahn as White House counsel. Warned...
  • CNN: Palin Not Invited to McCain Funeral Because She Began Era of “Vitriol”

    Remember Ted Kennedy in 1987 claiming that if the Senate confirmed Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, “women would be forced into back-alley abortions [and] blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters?” Not vitriolic. How about the 1991 “high-tech lynching” by Senate Dems of Clarence Thomas? Again, not vitriolic. Or the infamous NAACP dragging-death ad of 2000 in which George W. Bush was accused of killing the victim all over again? Nope, not vitriolic. No, the political vitriol didn’t begin until 2008. And it was Sarah Palin’s fault. That is, if you believe CNN, and, apparently, John McCain. This morning,...

    Today brings a rare but welcome recognition of reality by Joe Scarborough. On Morning Joe, Scarborough said: “The Democratic party’s darting left . . . And I think you’re going to see the press embracing a lot of these candidates on the far left.” Joe being Joe, he had to balance that with a shot at the president, adding, “you’re going to have Donald Trump race-baiting all the way to the fall.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    And here I thought ESPN had gone non-political . . . There I was this morning reading an ESPN article on yesterday’s US Open tennis action, when a political screed broke out. Reporting on a win by Andy Murray, ESPN’s D’Arcy Maine [pictured here] wrote: “And if Murray’s heartfelt win isn’t enough to win you over, perhaps his continuing stance on equality for women, might do the trick. (If those two things combined don’t do it, you might want to take a hard look in the mirror and ask yourself what’s wrong with you.)” Get the rest of the story...

    Warning: when you invite a flamboyant, retired lawyer in his 80s onto your show, you might wind up getting foul language on the air, along with wild conspiracy theories. Joe Scarborough learned that lesson the hard way today when he invited Martin London onto Morning Joe. London served as a lawyer to Spiro Agnew, and recently wrote a column suggesting that President Trump should consider resigning. At one point, London’s audio cut out, and when it came back, Scarborough said he hoped that his executive producer Alex Korson had hit the seven-second delay. We don’t know what London said —...

    There’s been a consensus that, whatever else his critics might say about him, Donald Trump has been a good father. Then along came Donny Deutsch. Said Deutsch on today’s Morning Joe: “He would flip on anybody to save himself. I actually believe, that even if they came to his children, he would send his children to jail before he would go to jail. I think he’s that level, that depraved,, and that empty of any moral center.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: "On a serious note . . . let's move beyond this fall. And if Donald Trump decides to run for re-election, and actually, count me as one of the few people who don't believe he will. But if Donald Trump does decide to run for re-election, that's when Americans take a serious look at whoever's sitting in the Oval Office and they ask, does he or she have the leadership qualities that we need to run America?"

    Give the woman credit for candor. She made clear what Dems are banking on: that the Mueller report will bring down President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Joyce White Vance, whom Pres. Obama appointed as US Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, gave away the game plan. Responding to Joe Scarborough’s question as to why Rudy Giuliani is “lying,” Vance said: “Giuliani and the President are playing to the court of public opinion, because they know that they’ll lose in a court of law . . . They know bad news will come in the form of a report...
