    During Monday’s Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham and her panel discussed CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers’s characterization of white women who voted for President Trump as racists who benefit from the patriarchy. Ingraham opened the segment by playing a clip of Powers from three years ago, back when she was a Fox News contributor and promoting her book, The Silencing: How The Left is Killing Free Speech. According to Powers in 2015: “It’s one thing just to be intolerant and have your own views and just say...I’m not interested in what other people think and I’m not going to talk...

    On Friday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a panel discussion of why most white women voted for Donald Trump that was stacked three to one against conservatives. Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from "white supremacy" even while being "oppressed" by white men. Alice Stewart was the exception to the liberal rule. At 11:27 p.m. Eastern, after Lemon began by asking Powers her view, she recalled: "People will say that they support him for reasons other than his...

    God bless the work that the good people at Newsbusters do on a daily basis - watching liberal crap on TV and calling out leftist nonsense so that the rest of America does not have to. This time, Newsbuster's Brad Wilmouth snagged a clip from Friday night of CNN's Don Lemon's panel of liberal hacks (except one) accusing white, pro-Trump women of being racist fools who support white supremacy. From Wilmouth: Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from...

    Hillary Clinton might want to watch the video of a CNN interview with a panel of Democrat voters in Florida. If she somehow still has some notion of running for president again in 2020, their reaction to the idea ofher campaigning in the Sunshine State for Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum might disabuse her of that idea.As you can see in this episode of Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday, most of those on the panel were strenuously opposed to her campaigning in Florida. In fact they make it quite plain that they are NOT with her (click "expand" to read more):

    Friday on CNNs The Lead, network political analyst Kirsten Powers said President Donald Trumps threat to revoke more security clearances after doing so to former CIA Director John Brennan was the action of an authoritarian wannabe. Powers said, Donald Trump doesnt care, obviously doesnt care about that. What he cares about is he has been insulted. This is all part of a sort of profile of the authoritarian wannabe and what you expect from despotic countries led more by despots and not led by democratically elected presidents.

    The verdict is in: the Democrats "War on Women" drumbeat, with a healthy assist from a few knuckle-dragger GOP Senate candidates, helped win the election for Barack Obama. On Tuesday, the electorate turned out once again to be more female than male, by the same 6-point margin as in 2008. Nationally, the ladies overwhelmingly preferred President Obama, 55 to 44 percent. GOP, you have a problem. The media treated the War on Women as being primarily about reproductive issues, but not so the Obama campaign. Team Obama knew that the issue that women cared about the most was the economy,...

    On Sunday, July 2, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself wrestling WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the CNN logo over his face. That same day, CNN’s Brian Stelter took to his show Reliable Sources where he and his panel of liberal reporters decried Trump as “dangerous” and a “fascists.” A full week later, Stelter and another stacked panel of journalists were defending CNN’s legally questionable tactics of tracking down the meme creator and threating to reveal his identity. In addition to that, they slammed the outlet’s critics and conflated them with those sending threats of violence to journalists....

    Political pundit Kirsten Powers appeared on CNN late Wednesday to discuss Bill OReillys departure from the Fox News network amid sexual harassment claims levied against him. Powers told CNNs Anderson Cooper that she had her own personal experience with OReilly, in which OReilly made remarks that many would have considered to be overtly sexist. I was thinking about an incident that had happened early on in my career there where I was on-air there with Margaret Hoover, whos at CNN now, on a regular segment, we were on every Monday, Powers said. And he got Margarets name wrong, and Margaret...

    Kirsten Powers, a regular on Fox News for the past decade, is switching channels. Powers is joining CNN as a political analyst, effective immediately, CNN announced Monday morning. She will continue to write columns for USA Today. Her first appearance will be on "Anderson Cooper 360" Monday night. Powers is the fourth Fox personality hired by CNN in the past 18 months, joining co-host Alisyn Camerota, liberal commentator Bob Beckel and conservative commentator Mary Katharine Ham. The timing of her move is newsworthy because it comes one month after the founding CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, resigned under pressure...
  • Kirsten Powers: Bill Clinton ... Going to Become Problem for Hillary in Wake of Cosby Allegations

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers explained why it was her view that former President Bill Clinton’s past being raised in this presidential campaign could be a problem for Hillary Clinton’s bid. According to Powers, the Bill Cosby situation shows that attitudes across the country have changed about allegations of rape and that could be problematic for Hillary Clinton’s bid. “I think that what was once referred to as Bill Clinton’s bimbo eruptions, which now sounds like something that people wouldn’t say today, are going to become problems for Hillary during the campaign,”...

    She worked for the Clinton administration, became a liberal pundit for the Daily Beast and a regular Democratic contributor to Fox News. On top of that, all her friends were agnostics or atheists. So when God pursued and won her reluctant heart, she was more surprised than anyone else. "If there was one thing in which I was completely secure, it was that I would never adhere to any religion-especially to evangelical Christianity, which I held in particular contempt," writes Kirsten Powers, in a first-person account of her conversion published in Christianity Today. The daughter of archeologist parents, she attended...

    Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers take on the leftist establishment Democrats are known for many things, but chief among them is the relentless determination to maintain a rigid progressive orthodoxy within their ranks. Bucking that orthodoxy requires character and conviction because those who do can expect a certain level of contempt directed their way from their oh-so-tolerant brethren. Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers are two women who have demonstrated a willingness to take positions decidedly at odds with the progressive establishment. Browns Democratic roots can be traced back to her father, Louisiana Democratic State Senator and Secretary of State James...

    Rally in front of Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Mo., on July 28, 2015. Democrats like to talk about the importance of being on the right side of history....Yet when faced with a series of videos detailing grotesque human rights abuses against unborn children by Planned Parenthood doctors, Democratic Party forces have eschewed all concern for historical or moral rightness. Pope Francis has correctly described the unborn as the most defenseless and innocent among us. But in the sordid tale of strategic crushing of the unborn to better harvest their hearts, lungs and livers, many Democrats have incredibly cast an...

    I recently had the pleasure of interviewing liberal Kirsten Powers for C-SPAN about her new book, The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech, which takes on what she calls the illiberal left for using bullying, intimidation and political correctness to silence opinions that differ with their own. Really, she is criticizing the unAmerican and unconstitutional trendwhether by liberals or conservativesto censor all opinions with which they disagree. She has amazing stories of the happenings on college campuses with kids being given trigger warnings on books and articles that might offend their sensitivities or give them PTSD by evoking...

    Columnist and Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers' new book, "The Silencing: How the Left Is Killing Free Speech," links her snugly to the cause of unfettered thought and expression -- important for conservatives, certainly but also for non-conservatives. As it should be for any American, come to think of it, as the "progressive" left pounds and pulverizes anyone of differing mind and purpose. The politicization of almost everything has put at some risk, in the most talkative of ages, the broadly assumed right of First Amendment-cherishing Americans to speak their pieces. "The illiberal left," says Powers, "... believes that people...

    RUSH: Now, I mentioned a couple of books. You know, Zev Chafets has written a mini-biography of me in a New York Times Sunday magazine profile of me, and he's also put together a book of conservative commencement addresses. It's based on the fact that conservatives are not asked to give commencement addresses. They just are frozen out. Some have. He's compiled them. He went to a bunch of high-powered conservatives and asked for permission to reprint their commencement addresses. I have not given a major college commencement address. I have at a couple of high schools. He said, "But...

    In a stunning slap at her team, liberal pundit Kirsten Powers is charging in a new book that the left is so intolerant of alternative views that it will use sexist and even racist language to shout down women and blacks who don't champion Democratic causes. Kirsten Powers, a USA Today and Daily Beast columnist and designated "liberal" on Fox, confessed in her new book that the left aggressively tries to "silence people" who don't fall into the liberal line. In The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech, she calls out the lefty tactics, especially how they belittle...
