  • Anti-Gun Media: We Never Said We Wanted To Repeal The Second Amendment...Uh, Yes You Did

    Did we take the red pill or the blue pill? Did we fall down the rabbit hole or not? What does a scanner see? The liberal news media has convinced themselves and their allies that no one is advocating the repeal of the Second Amendment; they just wrote several op-eds about it. This is all part of fever dream conservatives are suffering in the wake of the tragic Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February; the Left has made this diagnosis through their computer screens. No one wants to strip gun rights. Itís all a dreamósleep. Sleep. Sleep. Fortunately, the...

    So, does the Left hate Christianity?  There have been a more than a few disconcerting moments from the news media and others, where they’ve attacked people’s faiths. You had The View’s Joy Behar mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s faith, saying he was mentally ill in February. Behar apologized to Pence personally, which we only found out through an ABC shareholders meeting earlier this month. Pence accepted the apology, but wanted a public one as well. On March 13, Behar publicly apologized (via WaPo): “I think Vice President Pence is right; I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I...
  • Liberal media didnít think data mining was so bad when Obamaís campaign did it

    The left is outraged that President Trumpís campaign used data mining to win the 2016 election Ė but neither the media nor Democrats seemed to mind when President Obamaís team did the same thing. Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro penned a column for The Hill on Tuesday headlined, ďWhatís genius for Obama is scandal when it comes to Trump,Ē which outlined the differences in the way similar news was covered during contrasting administrations. Shapiro surfaced a 2012 report from The Guardian that proclaimed Obamaís reelection team was mining data through Facebook to target specific voters. The Guardian is also the publication...

    Not surprisingly, liberal media quickly blamed the National Rifle Association for the deaths of 17 innocent people shot by Nikolas Cruz earlier this week in Parkland, Florida. †But today, the left-wing website Think Progress and the New York Daily News ramped up their misguided condemnation by blaming the NRA specifically for supposedly teaching Cruz how to shoot the weapon. Their reasoning was that since the NRA donated $10,000 to a club at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that instructed proper firearm use, the gun lobby earned the blame for the shooter's actions. The club in question was the high schoolís...

    Well, we’re back to this again. Like many in the liberal news media, The Washington Post had their doubters about President Donald Trump’s medical report. The president is in excellent health: good heart rate, blood pressure, and cognitive function. There was a sigh among the press corps, who so desperately seemed to want to hear that the president was a cheeseburger away from a heart attack, had memory issues, or something else was wrong with him to paint a narrative that he was an unstable mess. Were they hoping for AIDS, Hepatitis C, necrotizing fasciitis, or anything to further denigrate...

    Hopping off what Katie wrote yesterday, the president is healthy. In fact, he’s in excellent health. Forget the idiotic speculation about drinking too many Diet Cokes and eating Big Macs, the president’s blood pressure was good and his cognitive function was fine. The 25th Amendment, the liberals’ go-to plan, the one that was going to get Trump out of the White House was dashed by science and genetics. At yesterday’s press briefing, the president’s doctor, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, broke down the numbers. His heart rate is fine, his blood pressure is fine, and he weighs 239 pounds. Jackson added...

    President Trump was the center of another firestorm. During immigration negotiations with congressional leaders, the president reportedly said why are we letting people in from ďs**thole countries.Ē Now, he was probably referring to the nations with temporary protective status, but the media blew a gasket. In the aftermath, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, decided to resign, citing his inability to no longer being able to serve President Trump. The timing was just a coincidence, but some in the media decided to jump the gun and say that he resigned over the presidentís remarks.†One MSNBC producer took to...

    It doesn‚Äôt take much to set off the media. It really doesn‚Äôt. Last night, the entire media establishment went into full meltdown mode because the president reportedly asked why are we allowing people from ‚Äėsh*thole countries‚Äô to come here. This is anonymously sourced. It really hasn‚Äôt been verified, and no‚ÄĒDick Durbin is not a credible source, having lied about White House meetings before. Regardless, CNN blew a gasket.

    So, whereís veteran ABC News reporter Brian Ross? The embattled reporter who went off half-cocked in December over a Trump-Russia story has not returned to work. Earlier last month, Ross reported that Michael Flynn, who later became Donald Trumpsí short-lived national security adviser, was instructed to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 campaign. It was actually after Trump won the election and was part of your typical laying of a diplomatic groundwork game thatís part of every transition for an incoming administration. The news tanked the markets by 350 points on December 1 as a result. It was...

    Before Christmas, it was revealed that MSNBC‚Äôs Chris Matthews had settled a sexual harassment claim back in 1999. The Daily Caller first reported on this story, which was confirmed by NBC News. Called a ‚Äúseparation-related payment,‚ÄĚ an NBC producer received some $40,000, though NBC says the payment was much less. Matthews is part of a string of men who have been accused, and in some cases, fired for sexual misconduct. Today‚Äôs Matt Lauer was fired such behavior. CBS News‚Äô Charlie Rose was dismissed as well. Mark Halperin of NBC News was also given the axe. Matthews still has his job...

    Well, the sexual harassment reckoning that‚Äôs sweeping the country has claimed another member of the media: Ryan Lizza. The Georgetown professor and New Yorker writer was fired from the publication earlier this afternoon for ‚Äúimproper sexual conduct.‚ÄĚ Georgetown University said that fall semester classes have concluded, but that Mr. Lizza won‚Äôt be teaching next semester. In a statement, Lizza denied there was any impropriety, noting that this was a ‚Äúrespectful‚ÄĚ relationship with a woman he dated.

    Weíre back to this again: Donald Trump is a dictator and we could be heading down the same path as Nazi Germany. Former President Obama made similar references at an event at the Economic Club of Chicago this week. He said democracy is like a garden, it needs attention, and that growing complacent could quickly lead to things falling apart. ďThat's what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate,Ē said Obama during a Q&A session. ďSixty million people died. ....

    So, The View finally addressed their embarrassing celebratory reaction to news that Donald Trump instructed ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. It was under the impression that this occurred when Donald Trump was a candidate during the 2016 election. Cue the champagne popping on the Left. Here’s the smoking gun, right? Nope. ABC News’ Brian Ross, who reported on this story, botched it. It was President-elect Trump instructing Mr. Flynn to establish your usual connections with foreign governments from a new incoming administration. If Mr. Ross’ name doesn’t sound familiar, he was the guy who reported that...

    This network, I tell you. Yes, they have their moments of clarity; even a blond squirrel finds a nut. But to say that NBC News or MSNBC donít have a political point of view is just ridiculous. We all know it. Well, anyone who isnít a snowflake progressive knows this. Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Budget and Management, surely knows this, with him calling out some of the questions during Sundayís Meet the Press broadcast, where he plainly hinted at NBCís slant on the issue. It was something that guest host Andrea Mitchell was not keen about,...

    CNN is airing a bizarre new advertisement with the motto "Facts First," which insists that the network calls an apple an apple, even if critics of its "news" reporting argue it's a banana. You see, CNN is interested in objective truth, not opinions. This would be like McDonald's advertising with an apple and saying the company is all about health food. Our "news" networks don't deal with facts first. They sell us narratives, and the favorite is the wild speculation about what might happen next to President Trump. For months, they have speculated about how meetings with powerful Russians would...

    Well, it looks like Hillary Clinton is moving onto the latest offensive in her rampage against those who she feels contributed to her defeat in the 2016 election: the media. At Recode in May, a tech conference in California, she said that the media covered her emails like it was Pearl Harbor. She also says that the press didnít do their jobs last year, and that they ďcanít bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage that all the issues affecting peopleís lives combined.ĒSeriously, ladyówerenít...

    The Brooke Baldwin mammary mess is just another example of how liberals leverage their ability to create new rules out of thin air as a means of asserting their power over us normals. What was A-OK yesterday is now forbidden, and what was forbidden yesterday is now mandatory. Their goal is to keep our heads spinning and paralyze us with fear, like nearsighted corporals caught in a minefield and terrified that if we take one wrong step we will detonate a concealed wrongthink booby-trap. They want us living in fear of their fussy wrath, and that is precisely why it...

And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?Ē The storm in Texas was lethal and destructive in countless ways. The misery, death, and devastation was on display for a week. Nothing can be said to ease the pain of those who...

    Let me just say this at the outset: Mildred Dresselhaus, who died in February at the age of 86, was an amazing woman. An accomplished physicist who won just about every scientific award short of the Nobel Prize, Dresselhaus was by all accounts a pioneer, patriot and great American. Nonetheless, I still find GE's commercial in her honor to be profoundly creepy. If you haven't seen the ad, which debuted at the Oscars and is omnipresent on MSNBC, you can find it on YouTube. It opens with a little girl unwrapping her birthday present. "A Millie Dresselhaus doll!" she exclaims...

    What would have happened if a Trump supporter had shot a Democratic congressman and other Democratic Washington officials? The answer is obvious. The New York Times, the rest of the left-wing media and the Democratic Party would have made the shootings the dominant issue in American life. It is not possible to understand the left -- and, therefore, the media and the current state of American life -- without understanding how the left uses and relies on hysteria. Hysteria is to the left as oxygen is to biological life. From the moment Donald Trump was elected president, America has been...
