    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

    CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday unloaded on Twitter users, including Donald Trump Jr., spreading conspiracy theories about his coverage of Hurricane Florence. Cooper said that in recent days, conspiracy theorists including President Trump's son, have shared a photo from his coverage of 2008’s Hurricane Ike and falsely claimed that it shows him exaggerating the depths of floodwaters in Hurricane Florence. “I usually let conspiracy theorists go unanswered,” Cooper said, and referenced a number of online conspiracy theories accusing him of faking reporting on the Sandy Hook shootings and in Haiti. In a nearly 10-minute segment live on CNN, Cooper...

    Not by one or two points either. The lead in Tennessee is five while the lead in Arizona is seven.Both states are supposed to be gimmes for the GOP, but CNN notes that each happens to be the home of a vocal Trump critic in the Senate who’s now retiring. Tennessee is Bob Corker country whereas Arizona is the home of Jeff Flake. I wonder how many Trump-skeptic Republican voters in each state have taken the senators’ criticisms of POTUS to heart and concluded that the best message they can send to the White House is to cross over...

    Establishing President Donald Trump's sought-after Space Force could cost $12.9 billion over its first five years, according to an Air Force document obtained by CNN. The Air Force estimates that the first year "additive costs" associated with establishing the new military branch in the 2020 fiscal year, including the creation of a headquarters, would amount to $3.32 billion. The document also estimates that the Space Force will oversee some 13,000 personnel when it is officially launched. In a memo accompanying the proposal, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson calls on Congress to authorize and fund the establishment of a Space Force...

    Senator Dianne Feinstein Dear Senator Feinstein; I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court. As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak. Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980's. He conducted these acts with the assistance of REDACTED. Both were one to two years older than me and students at a local private school. The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others. Kavanaugh physically pushed...

    Trump is ‘actively making the problem worse’ Hurricane Florence is now bearing down on North Carolina, and the media is looking to score political points. On MSNBC, host Chris Hayes invited meteorologist Eric Holthaus on to argue global warming is making hurricanes worse, and that President Trump is to blame. "We have a president that is denying the impacts of, you know, this hurricane season last year and this year and actively making the problem worse by, you know, not addressing this root cause of worsening storms,” Holthaus told to a nodding Hayes. On CNN, political analyst John Avlon, in...

    The media aided abortion activists’ misrepresentation. CNN said Brett Kavanaugh referred to contraceptives as ‘abortion-inducing drugs.’ While he didn’t, some of them in fact are. Following a week of theater billed as confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, desperate Democrats turned to the media for help peddling yet another unwarranted attack on the Supreme Court nominee: that Kavanaugh believes birth control is abortion.The charge followed an exchange during Thursday’s hearing when Sen. Ted Cruz asked Kavanaugh, who has served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006, to explain his dissent in the Priests for Life case. That case, as...

    Grasping: South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interesting take on the “anonymous” op-ed published by a “senior Trump administration official” in The New York Times last week, in which the writer repeated earlier claims from others that the White House is in chaos and the president is unhinged. Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Graham said he believes the op-ed is the latest sign of panic from a Deep State that their alleged savior, special counsel Robert Mueller has zip, zero, nada when it comes to his original mandate of finding illicit, nefarious “Russian collusion” with the 2016...

    Washington (CNN)Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz told supporters at a rally on Saturday that Democrats wanted to make Texas like California and listed off a few things as stereotypical staples of the blue state. "We are seeing tens of millions of dollars flooding into the state of Texas from liberals all over the country who desperately want to turn the state of Texas blue," Cruz said. "They want us to be just like California, right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair." Cruz added that his wife, Heidi Cruz, was "a California vegetarian." "She's wonderful, but I brought her...

    Media bias seems to get worse by the week. Even a work week shortened by Labor Day delivered on that depressing trend. Journalists cheered protests at the Supreme Court nomination hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and swallowed a silly Internet hoax. Then there was the anonymous New York Times op-ed defending a “steady state” rebellion against President Trump. It was a new low for journalists devoted to overturning a democratic election. Call it the pičce de résistance. The New York Times trumped opposition leaders at CNN and The Washington Post. The three battle daily for liberal attention and journalistic kudos...

    On CNN's New Day Saturday, right-leaning CNN contributor Ben Ferguson again demonstrated why he is one of the few bright spots on the otherwise liberal news network as he explained to apparently befuddled host Christi Paul why it is that many Americans are offended by the NFL kneeling campaign inspired by ex-player Colin Kaepernick. During the segment in which the CNN host accepted the liberal spin that kneeling during the National Anthem had a "very valid" aim of drawing attention to "systemic racism and police brutality," at one point she seemed confused about why people perceive the protests negatively as...

    While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance. Baldwin first went to CNN weekend host and former Obama official Van Jones, telling him that Obama definitely had “been sitting on” his critiques of Trump for sometime but “today, he did not hold back.”CNN Newsroom Waves Pom-Poms for Obama’s ‘Extraordinary Rebuke’; So ‘Arresting’With that, Jones was off...

    Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein on Thursday called for Congress to hold hearings on President Trump's fitness for office. "What we need here are, finally, I think, some hearings in which an executive session or open session, those around the president of the United States are questioned about the fitness of Trump to be the president of the United States," Bernstein, a CNN political analyst, said on the network. Bernstein justified his call by citing excerpts from former reporting partner Bob Woodward's new book and an op-ed from an anonymous senior Trump administration official who argued that the president's actions are...

    Well, it’s clear that Democrat Sen. Cory Booker is already running for President in 2020. He made a spectacle of himself today at the Confirmation Hearing of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court. Booker made a big show of releasing “Committee Confidential” documents pertaining to Kavanaugh, saying he was willing to “suffer the consequences” of doing so. But as it turns out, Booker was told last night the documents in question were being made public! Booker flat out lied this morning as he put on his drama queen show for the cameras. Even CNN’s Brooke Baldwin called Booker out...

    Several days ago a senior official in the Trump administration used an intermediary to contact New York Times op-ed page editor Jim Dao. Through the go-between, the senior official expressed interest in writing an explosive piece for the paper, describing a "resistance" to President Trump within the government that works overtime to protect the United States from the president's worst impulses. The result, published on the New York Times' website on Wednesday, prompted speculation all across Washington about who the official is.

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, seizing on an explosive op-ed from an anonymous administration official, said Thursday that it's time to use constitutional powers to remove President Donald Trump office if top officials don't think he can do the job. "If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment," Warren told CNN. "The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can't do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President -- take...

    [Snip] Singer Ariana Grande took the stage to sing "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," a funeral fit for a queen also served as a reminder that there isn't a single place in this country where a woman can feel safe from sexual assault and harassment. Following Grande's performance, Pastor Charles H. Ellis III wrapped his right arm around Grande, pulled her close to him and touched her breast. He did this on stage, in a church, during a funeral -- in front of thousands of attendees. Visibly uncomfortable and tense, Grande forced her way through awkward laughs...

    The New York Times op-ed page editor Jim Dao on Wednesday described the process behind publishing a bombshell op-ed from an anonymous senior administration official, telling CNN that the official contacted him “through an intermediary.” Dao said the Times also spoke directly with the individual but there are only a "very small number of people within the Times who know this person's identity.” The op-ed, published Wednesday afternoon, described coordinated efforts among Trump administration staff to counter President Trump. The Times described the anonymous author in a note as "a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known...
