    Put aside whatever suspicions you may have about whether Donald Trump will be directly implicated in the Russia investigation. Trump is right now, before our eyes and those of the world, committing an unbelievable and unforgivable crime against this country. It is his failure to defend. The intelligence community long ago concluded that Russia attacked our election in 2016 with the express intention of damaging Hillary Clinton and assisting Trump. And it was not only the spreading of inflammatory fake news over social media. As a May report from the Republican-run Senate Intelligence Committee pointed out: “In 2016, cyber actors...
  • CHARLES M. BLOW BARF ALERT: ‘I Want to Hate …’

    06/07/2018 8:07:54 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 40 replies
    In Trump’s America people are understandably experiencing news fatigue. There are torrents of it on multiple streams. There is outrage after outrage. It is often overwhelming. That’s the plan, I suspect. Trump is operating on the Doctrine of Inundation. He floods the airwaves until you simply give up because you feel like you’re drowning. And unfortunately, it’s working. A Pew Research Center report released Tuesday found that nearly seven in 10 Americans “feel worn out by the amount of news there is these days.” Fighting this fatigue is the real test of a person’s resolve, including mine. When my enthusiasm...

    “I said, ‘Wrong, Justin, you do.’ I didn’t even know … I had no idea. I just said, ‘You’re wrong.’ ” That, as reported by The Washington Post, was Donald Trump boasting during a private fund-raising dinner about lying to Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada, our northern neighbor and closest ally. When caught in the lie, Trump did what Trump does: Repeats the lie, louder, stronger, and more stridently. After the lie was reported, Trump tweeted: “We do have a Trade Deficit with Canada, as we do with almost all countries (some of them massive). P.M. Justin Trudeau of...

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Charles Blow’s New York Times column of this morning provides fresh evidence that President Trump has caused liberals, quite literally, to lose their minds. Regarding Stormy Daniels’ allegations of an affair with Trump, Blow writes [emphasis added throughout]: “If this were Barack Obama, Tiki-torch-toting Nazis would have descended on the White House and burned it to the ground.” Get the rest of the story here.

    New York Times columnist Charles Blow took to Twitter Friday afternoon with a message of unity, no doubt inspired by Divine Providence after rejoicing in the Thanksgiving holiday. Just kidding. The author of “Fire Shut Up in My Bones” told his followers point blank that Trump fans need not apply for friendship. If u support Trump, we don't have anything to talk abt & we can't be friends. This isn't abt parties or ideology; This is abt right & wrong— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) November 24, 2017 He followed up his Tweet saying that Trump’s lying was the cornerstone of his...

    Charles Blow writes a regular column for The New York Times. Julius Streicher wrote a regular column for Der Sturmer. Therefore, Charles Blow is Julius Streicher. Are you following this logic? Neither am I. But it is the rationale that Charles Blow uses to argue that Trump is Hitler. I am not kidding…and Blow is his real name…and truly he does write op-eds for The New York Times…and The New York Times is indeed Der Sturmer, a proposition we’ll get to in a moment. We’ll get to it once we follow Blow’s stream of thought, and how he manages to...

    You could stay in hell for a little while if you knew that you were going to get out. My mother always told me that when I was going through something tough and dispiriting. It was her way of saying that trouble doesn’t last forever, that even in your darkest place, hold fast to the hope and the light, that though today you are in the valley, tomorrow you shall scale the peak. Well, Mama, this is hell. Indeed, Donald Trump’s America is the Ninth Circle. And while I know that a president is limited to two terms, and I...

    The Left hates Donald Trump, but nothing has inspired more invective than his outreach to the black community. It’s like he has barged into an exclusive club wearing the wrong color shoes. In a recent column in The New York Times, Charles Blow sounds positively unhinged by Trump’s overture to African-Americans, writing a hate-filled screed that calls the GOP candidate a bigot, a reprobate, and a charlatan whose soul is “dark” and who is “a prime example of the worst of humanity.” And that’s just in the opening paragraphs.

    CNN's Charles Blow: Trump 'Bigotry' Is 'Urinating on' Blacks, 'Telling to Dance in the Rain' By Brad Wilmouth | August 24, 2016 | 2:30 PM EDT Appearing as a panel member on Wednesday's New Day, liberal CNN political commentator and New York Times columnist Charles Blow ranted about Donald Trump's recent appeals to black voters as being "the most horrible type of bigotry," as he hyperbolically asserted that "It is the kind of bigotry that says, 'I will knock you down while I pretend to pick you up.' It says that 'I am not talking to you, I'm talking to...

    New York Times op-ed columnist Charles M. Blow says he’s “fuming” after his son was allegedly stopped by a Yale University police officer at gunpoint Saturday night because he apparently fit the description of a possible burglary suspect. “So, my son, a 3rd year chem major at Yale was just accosted — at GUN POINT — by a Yale policeman bc he ‘fit the description’ of a suspect,’” Blow tweeted on Saturday. “He was let go when they realized he was a college student and not a criminal.”

    The Obama presidency is a failed presidency. He has presided over one of the slowest economic recoveries in history. His foreign policy has been a disaster. ObamaCare is a mess. And itÂ’s hard to lay the blame off on anyone else. The president didnÂ’t make Republicans part of any of his decisions and most of the time he ignored congressional Democrats as well.To make matters worse, Barack Obama is the most polarizing president we have had in the past 60 years. What makes that so strange is that we were all promised something completely different.Charles Blow, writing in The New...

    Actually the Democrats have been race baiting for decades. And it’s not going away. Using fear and race-polarizing agitation to drive minority voters to the polls is going to be the increasingly overt face of the Democratic Party. They can’t win any other way. What’s new is that the mainstream media has suddenly discovered all of this.Through the years, these same news outlets have wasted no time at all in spotting anything that even hints of Republican race baiting. Take the presidential campaign of 1988.Willie Horton was a black murder convict who raped a white woman and stabbed her boyfriend...
  • Columnist: ISIS Is Bush's Fault, But GOP Trying to 'Yoke Obama With' It

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | September 2, 2014 | AWR Hawkins
    On August 31, The New York Times ran a op-ed in which columnist Charles M. Blow contended that Republicans are trying to use the 9/11 attacks to make Americans fear ISIS and "yoke Obama with the ill effects of a war started by [George W. Bush]." One immediate problem with this theory is that ISIS--now IS--is not an ill effect of the Iraqi War but of the power vacuum created by President Obama's precipitous withdrawal of all U.S. Troops in 2011. But Obama knows this, which is why he blamed the troop pull-out on George W. Bush early last month....

    The reluctance of abortion-rights advocates to call the procedure by its name, and their preference for euphemism, is legend. To the euphemistic lexicon of "pro-choice," "women's health," "reproductive freedom," etc. ad nauseum, Charles Blow has made the latest contribution. His New York Times column of today speaks of Republican candidates opposing "a full range of reproductive options for women." More here.

    In 2009, the gap between the share of Republicans and Democrats who believed in evolution was just 10 percentage points, 54 percent and 64 percent, respectively. Last year, that gap widened to a whopping 24 points because as the percentage of Democrats who believed in evolution inched up to 67 percent, the percentage of Republicans believing so plummeted to 43 percent. Now, more Republicans believe that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time” than believe in evolution. This sad news comes via a survey released this week by the Pew Research...

    With the scent of scandal encircling the White House, some Republicans are already licking their chops over the 2014 midterm elections, while some Democrats are pre-emptively licking their wounds. Not so fast, folks. Retract those tongues. While it is impossible to predict what might drive voter attitudes in an election 18 months away, there are quite a few signs that 2014 will be nothing like 2010, which produced tremendous success for Republicans. First, the electorate is less conservative. In May 2009, the Tea Party had just begun to flex its muscle and feel its power on a national level. Now,...
  • Charles Blow Cheered By Obama's Vision Of 'Expansive Government'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Sure, conservatives know that liberals want ever-bigger government. But the left is normally shy about its ambitions. Witness President Obama's laughable claim in this week's State of the Union: "It is not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth." So there's something bracing about a liberal boldly, baldly, embracing bigger government. In his New York Times column of today entitled "The Real Obama", Charles Blow clearly sees through the president's misleading rhetoric. Blow knows what Obama is really after—and celebrates it: "Is this the real Barack Obama? I hope so....

    Listen closely. That sound you hear is the sound of a cultural paranoia by people who have lost their grip on the reins of power, and on reality, and who fear the worst is coming. And they are preparing for it, whatever it may be — a war, a revolution, an apocalypse. These extremists make sensible, reasonable gun control hard to discuss, let alone achieve in this country, because they skew the conversations away from common-sense solutions on which both rational gun owners and non-gun owners can agree. These people, a vocal minority, have extreme fears — gun confiscation, widespread...
