    Hillary Clinton ally David Brock is offering to pay for new information on Donald Trump, hoping that damaging audio or video on the Republican presidential candidate will be submitted to his super PAC. Brock, founder of the left-wing Media Matters and operator of Correct the Record super PAC, recently posted the plea on Correct the Record’s website
  • Desperation Drives Campaign Strategy Of Demonizing Trump Supporters

    09/10/2016 7:14:05 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 80 replies ^ | September 10, 2016 | Thomas Lifson
    This week could be the point of no return for the faltering Clinton campaign. The elitism that is a defining characteristic of the contemporary political establishment has lured the Clinton campaign into a strategic blunder. They are in a panic with Trump closing the polling gap in battleground states. So as panicked people sometimes do, the Brooklyn Brain Trust made a decision from the gut. They are scared of the Trump supporters, and they presume that their voters are too. So scared that it makes sense to them for Bill and Hillary Clinton to publicly disparage a substantial fraction of...

    Headline News, the sister network of CNN, is willing to make itself look ridiculous in order to avoid broadcasting anything that reflects well on Donald Trump. We have seen sophisticates like Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times rationalize anti-Trump bias and make himself look ridiculous, too, but in order to appreciate the humor, one has to actually read and comprehend an article that has numbers of multi-syllabic words. But thanks to HLN, we have a dramatic graphic representation of extreme media bias, and as a bonus, it is laugh-out-loud funny. Big Fur Hat of iOTWReport spotted the obsessive lengths...
  • Duck Hunt: CNN Fabricates New Phil Robertson Controversy

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | January 2, 2014 | John Nolte
    Even though CNN's phony controversy hasn't even been able to pick up traction at MSNBC, that hasn't stopped the left-wing cable news network from attempting to manufacture more trouble for Phil Robertson and "Duck Dynasty." But why would we expect anything less from the same network that fabricated evidence to frame a working-class Hispanic man? The CNN report below, covering Robertson's humorous relaying of marriage advice, is taken ultra-seriously by the CNN correspondent, and asks, "What is the tipping point to getting kicked off the air?" (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Does CNN not hear the crowd laughing? It is obvious that Robertson is going...

    ​This post contains graphic language. Discretion is advised. – If you thought the Lena Dunham ad comparing voting to sexual intercourse with the president was crass, you might want to skip this story. Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore and have teamed up to make an ad — titled “Greatest Generation” — that actually includes the phrase “cock punch” and features a woman old enough to be many peoples’ great grandmother promising to “burn this motherf**ker down.” The ad is allegedly centered around the issue of voter fraud, but really is focused on the idea that a victory by Mitt Romney...

    Sandra Fluke spoke to ten people in Nevada. Michelle Obama (formerly of never-been-proud-before/downright-mean-country infamy) is accusing Republicans of talking down the country. Joe Biden, in his usual adolescent fashion, is gesticulating and acting up behind the stage while others try to speak, babbling about binders and the mythical war in Iran. Bill Clinton, as is his custom, is talking nonstop and monotonously about how Barack Obama should not be blamed for not achieving the sort of economic success that he feels his own genius achieved. Our president goes from rants about Big Bird to something infantile called Romnesia — in...
  • ABC, CBS and NBC Hype Romney's 'Binders' Over Biden's 'Bullets' by 11 to 1 Margin

    The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) gave the faux furor over Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” statement in Tuesday’s debate a whopping 22 mentions through Friday morning. Yet when Vice President Joe Biden, on Thursday, told an audience member that Republican “young guns” like Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan had “bullets” aimed at him the networks delivered just a scant two total mentions (on NBC and CBS, ABC skipped the gaffe entirely.) On the morning after the debate ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas, on Good Morning America, singled out the “binders” comment: “You remember the Big Bird line that...

    Thursday brought a lot of good news for Mitt Romney’s campaign. National polls continue to move in his direction, with poll results starting to take into account the first day of polling after Tuesday night’s debate (though obviously we’ll need several more days of polling to see how the event affected the race). In Ohio, which could determine the outcome of the election, CNN reports that Republicans are significantly improving in early voting from four years ago, a key to winning the state. And the Romney campaign is so confident of victory in North Carolina (which Obama won last time)...

    DENVER – Mitt Romney has flipped the script. Not only is the Republican presidential candidate, after a brutal month following the conventions, getting a significant bounce following his strong performance in last week’s debate, but Romney is also now the candidate articulating a more inspirational, positive vision for the country’s future (even if he is quoting regularly from the show, “Friday Night Lights”). President Barack Obama, meanwhile, who’d benefited all summer from offering a more optimistic vision that contrasted with Romney’s negative assessment of the country’s economic situation, now seems to be going small.

    The White House is considering a push for hundreds of billions of dollars in new stimulative spending, focusing on business tax cuts including a temporary cut in payroll taxes. In part, this is good policy. In part, it's necessary policy. Anne Kornblut and Lori Montgomery quote an unnamed Democratic strategist complaining that the White House has let the issues get away from them in advance of November's election. "'We did the mosque, Katrina, Iraq, and now Middle East peace?' said a Democratic strategist who works closely with multiple candidates and spoke on the condition of anonymity. 'And in between you...

    The NAACP reportedly is about to take up a resolution to condemn the Tea Party movement for "explicitly racist behavior." The Kansas City Star reported that the organization plans to vote as early as Tuesday on the language at its annual convention in Kansas City. The resolution reportedly will call on "all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties" and stand against the movement's attempt to "push our country back to the pre-civil rights era." Tea Party groups have repeatedly denied allegations of racism. Gina Loudon, one of the founders of the St. Louis Tea...

    The Martha Coakley Campaign just sent staffers to the Scott Brown press conference at the Massachusetts Republican Party Headquarters. Since the media coverage has been negative towards Coakley lately, maybe they thought they'd jump on the Brown bandwagon. They came with Media Advisories in hand. Things must be really bad when you have to stoop to these tactics.

    The Associated Press Saturday, January 16, 2010; 5:51 PM BOSTON -- Republican Scott Brown charged Saturday that a Democratic mailing against his U.S. Senate campaign violates a Massachusetts law prohibiting false statements against a political candidate. The cover of a four-page mailer sent by the Massachusetts Democratic Party says, "1,736 women were raped in Massachusetts in 2008. Scott Brown wants hospitals to turn them all away."
  • Dem Mail: Scott Brown Wants Hospitals To Turn Away All Rape Victims

    This is absolutely brutal: Massachusetts Dems have dropped a mail piece accusing GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown of wanting hospitals to turn away “all” rape victims. The mail piece — sent over by the Brown campaign — shows pictures of women who are supposed to have been raped, one of them in a wheelchair bent over with her head in her hands. It says: “1,736 WOMEN WERE RAPED IN MASSACHUSETTS IN 2008. SCOTT BROWN WANTS HOSPITALS TO TURN THEM ALL AWAY.” The mailer — paid for by the Massachusetts Democratic Party — says the claim is based on “a law...

    Politics: Despite the whipping they took in Tuesday's election, congressional Democrats are moving fast on cap-and-trade and health care. Are they politically tone-deaf, or is this some kind of desperate strategy? Our guess is that Democratic leaders, having gotten a very negative message from the off-year balloting, are moving as fast as they can to pass the main big-spending items on their unpopular agenda. If they don't act now, the know their radical agenda is dead. On Thursday, Senate Democrats hustled the cap-and-trade bill out of committee without so much as a hello-and-howdy to the Republicans — knowing full well...

    But because the birthers insist on spreading their vile falsehoods, they continue to generate media attention. Trouble is, the mainstream news reports of the birthers have failed to answer a key question in the story: Why? Why do birthers, despite clear and convincing evidence to the contrary, still insist that Obama is not eligible to be president? To be sure, some of these folks are simply not connected to reality and share a lot with those who believe the moon landing was faked or that 9/11 was a government plot. But the simple truth is that many birthers are simply...
