  • Overseas, Obama begins the long goodbye

    Associated Press ^ | Apr 23, 2016 1:28 PM EDT | Kathleen Hennessey
    Back home, President Barack Obama has eight months, a dogfight over the Supreme Court and scores of campaign speeches for a successor ahead of him. But overseas, the president already has begun a long, slow goodbye. [] I think that I have been true to myself during this process, Obama said, reflecting on his presidency and his accomplishments. Obama said he was proud of his health-care overhaul, the Iran-nuclear deal, his handling of what he described as hysteria around the Ebola crisis and saving the world economy from a Great Depression. That was pretty good, he said.

    A man is a man no matter what they call themselves, read Schillings comment, which he apparently posted in response to a photo about a recent North Carolina law that restricts transgender peoples access to bathrooms and locker rooms. I dont care what they are, who they sleep with, mens room was designed for the penis, womens not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic. ESPN issued a statement on Tuesday, saying ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated...
  • 'Confirmation' -- HBO's High-Tech Lynching

    Townhall.com ^ | April 19, 2016 | Debra J. Saunders
    The left is masterful at rewriting history. Witness HBO's TV movie "Confirmation," which aired Saturday, about Anita Hill's accusations of sexual harassment 25 years ago, which almost derailed Clarence Thomas from becoming a Supreme Court justice. The drama's makers claim that they didn't take sides in depicting Thomas' Senate confirmation hearings, even as a trailer punctuates close-ups of actress Kerry Washington, who played Hill, with stentorian capital letters: "It only takes one voice ... to change history." Another trailer proclaims, "One woman made a choice ... to take a stand." Apparently, because HBO didn't expressly label Thomas as guilty, producers...

    Melissa Harris-Perry has joined Elle.com, where she will serve as editor-at-large. Elle.com editorial director Leah Chernikoff says Harris-Perry will focus on the intersection of race, gender, politics, and yes, even fashion, telling the often-overlooked stories of women and girls of color. Harris-Perry left MSNBC after an internal memo became public in February. In the memo, Harris-Perry accused NBC News chairman Andy Lack and MSNBC president Phil Griffin of taking away her weekend morning discussion program. I will not be used as a tool for their purposes, she wrote. I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head. Joining...

    President Barack Obamas income fell to just over $436,000 in 2015, the lowest of his presidency, and he and first lady Michelle Obama paid nearly $81,500 in taxes, according to tax returns the White House released on Friday. The presidents more modest adjusted gross income reflected book sales that have continued to fall off in the years since he last published in 2006. The first family paid an effective tax rate of 18.7 percent. The Obamas also reported donating $64,000 to charity, or about 15 percent of their income. Their largest charitable donation, $9,000, went to the Fisher House Foundation,...

    On the eve of Wisconsin's primary, MSNBC misled viewers with a story about how the Badger State's new voter ID law goes into effect tomorrow on primary election day. Correspondent Tony Dokoupil used the plight of two new residents to the state to complain about the cost $34 each of an in-state driver's license. What Dokoupil failed to mention, however, was that the couple in question could easily have obtained FREE identification from the state. "Last month, Matt and Jessica Hegdahl (sp?) moved to Wisconsin in search of a job, and found themselves at the center of a...

    Kevin Jackson, a Black conservative talk show host and writer, has a strong opinion about why Donald Trump is succeeding. He believes Trump is engendering such fear and hatred among those who recognize the threat he presents to their monopoly on power that they are unable to clearly see why he is where he is at this late stage of the primary cycle. Clearly even those who hate Trump the most see that he resonates with many Americans; but what they dont get is why. They KNOW he is a racist so how can he be appealing to as much...

"Well first of all, this is a subject that is very near and dear to my heart, because I've been talking about it, certainly much more than anybody else, and it's why I'm probably No. 1 in the polls, because of the fact that I say we have to have strong borders," Trump said Tuesday morning on NBC's Today show.

    There are only a few days left for Republican bed-wetters to stop Donald Trump from steamrolling his way to the presidential nomination via Florida and Ohio, and if Thursday nights CNN Republican Presidential Debate is any indication, its not gonna happen. There was one moment that went largely unnoticed, though, and it perfectly demonstrates why hes winning. It came about an hour into the debate, as Ted Cruz was launching into one of his patented Eighth-Grader-Reciting-His-Book-Report-As-Though-Its-A-Shakespeare-Sonnet routines about how ideologically immune he is to special interests, a linchpin of his appeal, when Trump casually destroyed him. The key here is...

    Coach is Right ^ | 3/10/16 | Peggy Ryan
    McCarthyism is the political practice of publicly accusing someone of disloyalty or subversion with no real proof or evidence. In the 1950s, Senator Joseph McCarthys anti-communist crusade took root and rose to legendary ferocity. During the McCarthy period, suspicion and accusations were enough to convict the accused even with inconclusive or questionable evidence. As a result of the public charges, many had their careers and reputations destroyed; some even went to prison over the mere suggestion they were a Communist. Today we have a new McCarthyism. Its called racism. Though in a different wrapper, accusations of racism also involve trial...

    There's a point at which any decent person puts aside partisan rhetoric. That point would be death. Especially the death of a First Lady. Even if you didn't like Reagan, taking shots at Nancy Reagan in 2016, after her death, is really despicable. Post writer Lois Romano decided to write a ridiculously nasty smear of Ronald Reagan and his wife as the obit. About half the content seems to be about how much money Nancy Reagan spent on things. By paragraph 3, Lois Romano starts attacking Nancy Reagan. "As first lady from 1981 to 1989, Mrs. Reagan had a knack...

The network said Thursday that it is proud of its diversity effort and noted that people of all ethnicities have seen their roles reduced or eliminated as part of a transition to more breaking news coverage.

    Connecticut officers who drew their stun guns on the job last year were more likely to fire when the suspect was black or Hispanic, according to a first-of-its-kind set of statistics that could stoke the nation's debate over race and police use of force. The raw, preliminary data was obtained by The Associated Press ahead of an official analysis expected in the coming weeks. While police and state officials cautioned against passing judgment until then, at least one criminal justice expert said he would not be surprised to see similar findings elsewhere around the country. Some civil rights groups said...

    It was, perhaps, the day the media died. Next week marks the fifth anniversary of the bitter night-January 21, 2011-when progressive Americans, and indeed Americans of all political persuasions who value honor, truth, respect, intelligence and decency, were shocked to learn that MSNBC had decided to end Countdown with Keith Olbermann, perhaps the single best news program ever to air on cable television in the United States. The abrupt cancellation of Countdown was a victory for the dishonest political forces Olbermann had forcefully condemned during his nearly eight-year run-and a demoralizing defeat for democracy. Things just haven't been the same...

Some of their previous employees have grown tired of the biased Kremlin advertising and taken the rare path of turning down a job in the media.

Proving his mettle as a candidate worthy of his post-season position, Cruz has ruggedly endured a sustained week of media battering over Trump’s birtherism blitz, losing little ground. Trump’s all-out offensive raising questions about Cruz’s eligibility because of his birth in Canada – widely held to be a non-issue by constitutional experts — has arrested Cruz’s upward momentum but not caused a collapse.

    I have long marveled at liberals' air of superiority and lack of self-reflection, which have always been particularly evident among liberal media elites and journalists.

It doesn't just serve to inform the people and make them better contributors to the democratic process. It is the virtual fourth branch of government, operating as a watchdog on the formal branches to further check their potential abuses of power. It is a heady concept to believe...

In a memo to employees, he made a threat to fine employees with a forced donation to UNICEF. To avoid offense, they were told they should use the word "international" instead because it "promotes a sense of unity." Today, this is Jeff Zucker's CNN, and unity be damned. Offending the audience is part of the ratings gambit. On Dec. 13, as many Christians celebrated the third Sunday of Advent and rejoiced over...

He responded by refusing press credentials to Register reporters at his events. Trump knocked the paper at an event Friday in Des Moines: "You have one of the most dishonest right here...

    They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage. One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion. The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied. What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

    "I wonder in 50 years, will we have football?" USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan mused on Sunday. "We're going to have it for the next 10, 15, 20, 30, probably. But 50 years? I don't know," she told ABC's "This Week" with Martha Raddatz.
  • Washington Post: How anti-immigrant attitudes are fueling support for Donald Trump

    Washington Post ^ | 11/25/2015 | By Michael Tesler
    Political commentators have asserted for months that Donald Trump’s dominance of the Republican presidential field is fueled by his anti-immigrant rhetoric. As Thomas Edsall put it: Donald Trump's success is no surprise. The public and the press have focused on his defiant rejection of mannerly rhetoric, his putting into words of what others think privately. But the more important truth is that a half-century of Republican policies on race and immigration have made the party the home of an often angry and resentful white constituency -- a constituency that is now politically mobilized in the face of demographic upheaval. This...

    In an article celebrating the incestuous relationship of a brother and sister who met for the first time as adults, Cosmopolitan magazine defies “the last taboo” and argues that, by virtue of shared genetics, a brother and sister coupling creates a “perfect storm” that others might be missing out on.The leftwing publication has a history of pushing liberal social causes—whether its celebrating a woman who posted on Facebook a video of herself having an abortion, advocating for gender neutral restrooms, or praising the Kardashian/Jenner family as “America’s First Family.” Now Cosmo is pushing the taboo of incest and seemingly overlooking...

    Dear Used Car Salesman: I want to thank you for your invitation to be interviewed on your local news program. I am afraid that I must respectfully decline your request. In fact, I will not be accepting any future interview requests from your news outlet. I am writing today to provide an explanation for my blanket refusal. As an initial matter, you are probably perplexed by my decision to refer to you as a used car salesman given that you consider yourself to be a journalist. My refusal to use your preferred job title is an example of the norm...

    They can't be this dumb, can they? They just can't be. Our progressives Democratic friends aren't that stupid, right? But they are counting on the American people being stupid when it comes to world affairs. And there's very little to suggest they won't be successful in that endeavor. Be it the president saying ISIS is "contained" hours before the group unleashed evil on the streets of Paris, or the secretary of state saying the Paris attacks were crazy, unlike the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, where there was "legitimacy" and a "rationale" to them, nothing they say can...

    Ben Carson faced some combative reporters during a press conference in Florida tonight about the various issues in his background that have been raised this week. He dismissed Politico's report about him not being formally offered a West Point scholarship, simply insisting it was relayed to him that he could get one with the kind of accomplishments in his background. He declared, "There is a desperation on behalf of some to try to find a way to tarnish me... Next week it'll be my kindergarten teacher who said I peed in my pants." -snip- "I do not remember this level...

    The Wile E. Coyote Republican establishment/media cabal took it on the chin Wednesday night. They know it, but don’t know what to do about it. This debate was supposed to be the launching pad for Ben Carson. Playing the part of “Bagdad Bob,” the media keeps saying Donald Trump is losing strength and Carson is gaining on him, but it’s not true and they know it. The Trump haters started rocking his boat with bogus psy-ops polls including one showing Carson ahead nationally. “Trust us Ben, you’re surging,” they said, but he imploded Wednesday night, so he is not. The...

    The get Hillary committee did not get Hillary. The House Benghazi committee -- dubbed a get Hillary effort by Democrats who opposed its creation -- brought out precious little new information and no major political missteps by the former secretary of state, who happens to be running for president. Under sharp and lengthy cross-examination for perhaps the biggest foreign-policy debacle of her time in office, Hillary Clinton was somber and substantive. During the political fireworks, Clinton was watching the show, with loyal Democrats matching their Republican colleagues volume, and Clinton staying out. The highly anticipated all-day-cable affair was the culmination...

    RUSH: ESPN is in trouble economically, financially. ESPN just announced that they're gonna have to cut a minimum of 350 jobs. And the reason why is subscribers are abandoning cable. Many people do not understand how all of this works, the cable bundle. I mean, you understand that you have to pay a minimum amount per month to get a bunch of channels, the vast majority of which you never watch, but the channels you want are in that bundle, and you have to pay for the bundle. So let's say you want your local stations, you want ESPN, maybe...

    So now we have Marvel Comics denigrating Americans who believe we should enforce immigration law. As a brand new symbol of diversity, Marvels racially altered Captain America should be called Captain Propaganda after the tool used so often by the left to indoctrinate Americas kids against the evils of preserving borders, language and culture in the United States. In the strip, we are given the picture of a coyote trying so hard to help illegal aliens begin a better life after smuggling them across the Mexican border. He gives them food and water and assists them in finding their way...
