    Less than one year ago, the Washington Post and the New York Times won Pulitzer Prizes for coverage of something that, according to Mueller’s report, did not exist.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says Removing Trump Won't Fix Problem W/GOP or 'Dark Money That Funded Him'

    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that President Donald Trump is “a symptom of much deeper problems” that won’t simply go away if he were to be impeached or voted out in the next presidential election. Ocasio-Cortez, who represents New York’s 14th district, posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon, resharing a tweet by actor George Takei. The celebrity — most famous for his role in Star Trek and a frequent critic of Trump — wrote that even if the president were removed from office, the U.S. would still have “a big question” to answer. “How did a guy like that...
  • Trump Keeps Condemning White Nationalists — So why does the media keep denying it?

    The Daily Caller ^ | March 21, 2019 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    Ever since the 2016 campaign, Democrats and the media have asserted that President Trump has failed to distance himself from white nationalists and neo-Nazis. The fact that White House staffers must answer these questions shows how far out of kilter the discussion has gone.

    The national Sunday morning talk shows blamed President Trump for the New Zealand massacre that left 50 dead. CNN’s Jake Tapper warned: “I don’t think moderate Republicans are doing enough to hold President Trump accountable for his rhetoric.” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted supposed parallels to the killer’s rhetoric, and asked: “When the president uses the term ‘invaders,’ does that dehumanize to the point where it can get misused?”

    New York University has hired Talia Lavin as an adjunct journalism professor less than a year after the former New Yorker fact checker resigned after falsely accusing an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent of having a Nazi tattoo. Lavin’s undergraduate course “Reporting on the Far Right” will kick off in the fall semester of 2019 at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. In its official faculty bio, the university billed Lavin as an expert in “far-right extremism and social justice.”
  • Politico: 'Republicans Gleefully Pounced on the Special Counsel’s Statement'

    Newsbusters ^ | March 24, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Perhaps the revelation of the long-awaited Robert Mueller report is a good time for the mainstream media in general, and Politico in particular, to finally retire that hackneyed meme, "Republicans pounced." For at least a year that worn out term has been used whenever Republicans have responded to erroneous Democrat or liberal positions. It didn't matter how much in the wrong the Democrats were, if Republicans offered any kind of reply or correction, it was often translated by the MSM as "Republicans pounced." The latest (and can we hope, last) instance has come with the release of the Mueller report in...

    So far, so good. President Trump has inflicted immense damage on the rule of law and on our democratic norms, but to date the system — Trump calls it the “deep state,” the rest of us call it constitutional government — has held. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, despite threats, insults and president’s refusal to sit for an interview, completed his work. He racked up 37 indictments, convictions or plea deals (nearly 200 charges) from three Russian companies and other individuals, including the president’s former campaign chief, his former deputy campaign chief, his former national security adviser and his...

    News anchors and pundits have repeated lies about Donald Trump and race so often that some of these narratives seem true, even to Americans who embrace the fruits of the president’s policies. The most pernicious and pervasive of these lies is the “Charlottesville Hoax,” the fake-news fabrication that he described the neo-Nazis who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 as “fine people.”

    Christians living in a Muslim country ‘143 times more likely’ to be killed by a Muslim than vice versa Terrorist attacks against Muslims in the Western world, like the one that took place in Christchurch, are extremely rare. Friday’s carnage in two mosques in New Zealand, with the death toll currently at 50, is the first major event of its kind since the Quebec City mosque shooting over two years ago – which killed six persons, conservative writer Srdja Trifkovic states in Chronicles Magazine. Nonetheless, this terrible incident will dominate the headlines infinitely more than any comparable carnage involving Christians,...

    How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways.... Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    As Robert Mueller exits stage left, the Justice Department will continue to pursue a handful of investigations—and potentially more prosecutions -- that began with or were bolstered by the special counsel's work. And a significant group of them still focus around President Donald Trump. The still-live investigations range from an expansive probe into the Trump inaugural committee, to various investigations relating to former top Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, to tips that stemmed from Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen's experience with Trump and his family's company. It's possible other investigations are being conducted quietly, as well.

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the fourth-highest ranking Democrat in the House, said special counsel Robert Mueller's report should be made public so Americans can find out whether President Trump is a legitimate leader, an asset of the Russian government, a kingpin or a "useful idiot." "Let's take the first step in terms of the full disclosure of the report and the underlying documentation," Jeffries said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "The American people deserve to know whether Donald Trump is either: A, a legitimate president; B, a Russian asset; C, the functional equivalent of an organized crime boss or; D, just...

    At long last, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted his report to the attorney general. What does that mean for Congress — and the question of impeachment? For 21 months, leaders of both parties have found one consistent area of agreement: the ongoing Mueller investigation provided a convenient excuse to duck, deflect, and delay discussion of impeachment. With each new revelation of impeachable conduct, the bipartisan response from Congress has been that impeachment talk was “premature” until the Mueller report was complete. That excuse is now gone. The question is whether the House of Representatives will begin an impeachment investigation,...
