    Congressional Republicans may not celebrate the passage of the tax bill at the inside-the-Beltway equivalent of the Bada Bing, but Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall nonetheless likens them to some notable patrons of that fictional North Jersey strip club. "The absolute need to pass something and to pass it fast led to a legislative process which was akin to driving the truck up to the loading bay and just taking everything. Looting. Or perhaps a mob bust-out," wrote Marshall on Tuesday. "One episode of The Sopranos…was based on the 'bust out' idea. A guy got into debt...

    After making completely false claims about the GOP tax reform bill on ABC’s Good Morning America earlier on Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos spent most of This Week leading the discussion tearing it down. After spending a couple minutes smearing the bill in his opening monologue, Stephanopoulos interviewed Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn where one of his first questions involved allegations GOP leaders bought off Tennessee Senator Bob Corker with a real estate provision: There's a lot more scrutiny of the bill, which was just released on Friday in these final hours. Including an article in the International Business Times,...

    On Friday's Velshi and Ruhle show, MSNBC co-hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle gave a forum to frequent MSNBC guest Kurt Bardella -- known for being a Republican who trashes his right-leaning former client Breitbart News -- so that he could discuss his decision to finally officially switch to the Democratic party. The move will be no shock to those who have observed his appearances on MSNBC in which he has hyperbolcally claimed that the white racist rally in Charlottesville "is the Republican Party," and has even taken liberal policy positions on issues like gun control.MSNBC Hosts Frequent GOP Guest...

    With the Senate GOP on the verge of passing their version of tax reform on Thursday, NBC Nightly News continued their week-long series where they claimed to break down the tax bills. But in reality, they only sought to stoke the fears of those who weren’t familiar with it. “Once aligned with the House version, it will affect your take-home pay as it adds new credits, takes away some popular deductions and slashes corporate taxes,” announced Anchor Lester Holt at the top of the program, as Capitol Hill Correspondent Kasie Hunt bemoaned how Democrats had no input.After Holt suggested that...

    On MSNBC’s 11th Hour Monday night, disgraced fake news anchor Brian Williams warned of the “danger” of President Trump calling out liberal media bias at CNN International. The left-wing channel’s favorite “Republican,” Steve Schmidt, eagerly agreed with Williams, claiming the President was endangering journalists and behaving like an “autocrat.” “What’s the danger, in your view, of the President, as we saw over the weekend, declaring a network, in this case CNN International, to be fake and telling a global audience the same thing? And perhaps deciding to give a trophy to the network of his choosing that’s been reporting, giving...

    On Saturday's AM Joy, Washington Post columnist and frequent MSNBC guest Jennifer Rubin was near breaking her own record for aiming vitriol at Republicans as she declared that "there is a special place in hell" for Kellyanne Conway because the White House advisor recently advocated voting for Roy Moore in spite of sexual molestation accusations against the Alabama Republican. On MSNBC, WashPost's Rubin: 'Special Place in Hell' for Kellyanne Conway After playing a clip of Conway from FNC's Fox and Friends suggesting that voters should vote for Moore, host Joy Reid turned to Rubin and posed: "So, yes, vote Roy...

    A Thursday afternoon CNN Newsroom panel showcased political tribalism as three liberal journalists downplayed the disturbing sexual misconduct allegations against Democratic Senator Al Franken (Minn.) by harping on the fact that Franken was “just a comedian” while those against Roy Moore and President Trump were far more serious. “But just out of the gate, the fact that you have Gloria, you know, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer, right, from the left and right, both saying there needs to be an ethics investigation. I realize that this was years and years ago, this story, and he was a private citizen at...

    New York Times political reporter Jeremy Peters on Saturday joined the odd new trend in the mainstream press of attacking Fox News for actually covering political stories besides Donald Trump -- especially those involving Hillary Clinton’s and Russia. Fox and other right-leaning outlets were also mocked for not obsessing as much as the rest of the press on President Trump’s Russia controversies in “As Russia Inquiry Widens, an Alternative Narrative Emerges on the Right.” Another Times article accuses the network of “pushing its own version of reality,” as if that’s not what the Times does every day. It’s apparently easier to...

    ABCs make-believe Republican, Matthew Dowd was on a tear Sunday morning during his appearance on This Week’s “Powerhouse Roundtable.” While there, he continued his exhausted criticism of President Trump but he set his eyes on a new target: White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly. And according to Dowd, Kelly’s defense of President Trump’s call to a gold star widow meant people should start to question his intelligence. Before handing the floor to Dowd, fill-in Moderator Martha Raddatz noted that her guest found parts of Kelly’s comments “especially troubling.” He did mention that he was moved by Kelly’s touching...

    Just when you thought CNN couldn’t cheapen itself any further, it did, folks. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom reacted to a powerful White House statement Chief of Staff and Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) amidst the Gold Star families controversy by noting Kelly’s personal sacrifices before lambasting him for calling out a Democratic member of Congress and attacking the media. Right off the bat, CNN political director David Chalian noted that “it's hard to listen to a father tell that story and not have sympathy” before declaring that Kelly’s emotions must be separated “from the White House chief of staff going into...

    On TuesdayÂ’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough returned in fine form to play the part of the impassioned, moderate conservative who completely supports the Second Amendment, but just wants some sensible gun controls too. However, by the end of the show, Joe had argued for banning most legal weapons currently in AmericansÂ’ possession while simultaneously revealing a complete lack of knowledge about basic gun terminology.

    In a bizarre story for NBC’s Today on Friday, correspondent Peter Alexander preemptively attacked President Trump for possibly blocking the release of classified government files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, even though the reporter acknowledged that  “no decision’s been made” by the administration regarding the obscure bureaucratic matter. “As you can imagine, historians are eagerly awaiting the release of these never-before-seen files....The National Archives here in Washington has until October 26th to turn them all over....The one person who could stand in the way, President Trump,” Alexander melodramatically announced at the top of his report about...

    Editor's Note: The following post has been slightly adapted from its original publication at Liberty Unyielding. Aliens are foreigners, not citizens, as one can see from dictionary definitions. So they do not include the typical immigrant, who is a naturalized citizen. It was thus inaccurate for The Washington Post’s Jenna Portnoy to write a story last Thursday claiming that the House of Representatives had passed a bill allowing “immigrants” to be deported if they are criminal gang members, when in fact the bill was aimed at “aliens.” (“Bill lets officials deport immigrants for gang ties,” Sept. 15, pp. B1 &...

    On Wednesday and Thursday nights, FNC’s The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld offered moving commentaries about how the liberal media’s attempts to indict the American people as perpetually divided have utterly failed as exhibited by the Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. Gutfeld also discussed how Harvey has shown that the basic safety of each and every person in the face of death is what matters and not petty debates like replacing Columbus Day and taking down Confederate Statues.

    While there have been only a smattering of climate change references since Hurricane Harvey took over news cycles, CNN and MSNBC featured more shameful exploitations of the hurricane on Monday to promote climate change as thousands were in need of help from rising flood waters. Perhaps most notably, one New York Times writer on MSNBC knocked the President, questioning his motives for recovery efforts, and used climate change to make a class argument that the poor and especially poor Trump voters are disproportionately going to be targeted by it.

    Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom, CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that the Republican party has been "playing the race card" for "many decades" as she commented on Republican reaction to President Donald Trump's recent comments in which he seemed to give cover to white racist rally participants in Charlottesville. At 9:08 a.m. ET, after recounting Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's reaction to Trump's comments, Henderson continued: CNN's Henderson Claims GOP Have 'Played the Race Card' for 'Many Decades'   I think you have Republicans who are going to have to figure out what they're going...

    Seconds after President Trump’s Monday remarks finally calling out the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists by name, CNN hosts and panelists made clear that there was nothing Trump could have said that would have satisfied them, excoriating him for not going far enough and announcing “policy in terms of addressing this.” Inside Politics aired during and immediately after the President’s statement and Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev got the first crack, slamming Trump for not doing “outreach to people not white or who might feel that they were on the victimized end of the message that the protesters were carrying.”Never Satisfied: CNN...

    Journalistic integrity took another Monday afternoon on MSNBC, with another casualty in the liberal plot to paint President Trump as a closet neo-Nazi Klansman. Piling in on the liberal media frenzy following Saturday’s sad events at Charlottesville, MSNBC’s Chris Jansing anchored a segment with Trump critic Mark Potok, formerly of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Now Editor-in-Chief of the SPLC’s Hatewatch Blog, Mr. Potok is a mainstay within the liberal propaganda machine. But after witnessing the softball interview with MSNBC’s Chris Jansing, you’ll realize she seems to be as well. MSNBC’s Jansing Lets Lefty Potok Loose; Says Trump Is ‘An...

    Shifting to Tuesday, the man shown reverence by the likes of Don Lemon and Brian Stelter stated with glee: The Russia investigation has the potential to be the biggest scandal in American political history. But even if it ends up bringing down a presidency in spectacular fashion (and I think we are still a long, long, way from that happening), historians may look back at it as a blip compared to to a scandal that has the ability to damage our planet irrevocably - a process that is already well underway.

    What NBC’s Willie Geist spun as a rundown of the political echo chambers in America on Sunday Today, quickly devolved into a condemnation of the rise of conservative media. “Fake news is a favorite term, as you know, of President Trump. What you consider real and fake in many cases has become a question of where you're sitting and who you're listening to,” declared Geist at the start of the segment. He ignored the fact that the term was first used to describe stories about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. According to him, reporter Hallie Jackson was supposed to...
