  • Of Course: MSNBC Connects Munich Terror Attack Talk to GOP Convention

    NewsBusters ^ | 22 Jul 2016 | Scott Whitlock
    MSNBC on Friday used the unfolding shooting spree in Munich to bash the Republican Party and connect the GOP convention to it. Regarding terror, Daily Beast editor Christopher Dickey talked to Brian Williams and lectured, “What we're looking at now in Europe and, to some extent, at the Republican convention and in the discourse in the United States, is a lot of talk about war as if we're talking about a massive operation.” Dickey insisted that the terror threat not be overstated: “Yet we're often talking as if we're going to go to war with a billion Muslims. And I...

    This was a moment that millions of Americans, some of them very weird indeed, have been praying for. This was the moment that tens of millions of others viewed with fear, revulsion, disbelief. The most divisive political figure in modern U.S. history became his party’s standard-bearer for the presidential election. After I wrote in the Mail in February that a Donald Trump presidency was a real possibility, I was teased as if I had suggested that it might snow in July. Today, a distant spectre has grown into something much bigger and scarier. The prospect will give sleepless nights to...

In a op-ed, L.A. Times. writer James Kirchick dangles the ambiguous but ominous threat, “If Trump wins, a coup isn’t impossible here in the U.S.” It basically hints that a military overthrow of a Trump Presidency might be coming in the future, and would then be justified by horrific dictatorial acts that hordes of screaming leftists have been warning about all this time: From the L.A.

    Americans viewing the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey as some exotic foreign news story -- the latest, violent yet hardly unusual political development to occur in a region constantly beset by turmoil -- should pause to consider that the prospect of similar instability would not be unfathomable in this country if Donald Trump were to win the presidency.

Businesses that don’t respect and accommodate an individual’s chosen gender identity risk incurring six-figure fines under rules implemented by the city’s Commission on Human Rights. The list of protected gender identities is available online and includes options such as “gender bender,” “two spirit,” “third sex,” “androgynous,” “gender gifted,” and “pangender.” A city official speaking on background confirmed to The Daily Caller that all of the listed identities...

The Office of Justice Programs plans to substitute terminology such as “person who committed a crime” and “individual who was incarcerated” in speeches and other communications as part of an effort to remove barriers that officials say hinder progress of those who re-enter society after completing their prison sentences. “I have come to believe that we have a responsibility to reduce not only the physical...

During a telephone interview with "Fox & Friends," Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected. Trump's response: "Well, she's a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo."

Now, nothing causes more transactional sex than poverty, and few conditions bring more poverty to women around the world than limiting capitalism and free trade.

    The state of California is reportedly considering legislation that would force group insurance policies to provide infertility treatment for gay and lesbian couples. Two men who have sex with each other for a year and do not produce a baby would be considered “infertile” under the proposed legislation. So would two women having sex. Since biology does not allow those without a uterus to conceive or those without a penis to impregnate, every year-long gay couple in California would potentially be covered by this new provision of California law. The fact sheet supporting AB 460, the proposed legislation, states that...

Ashburn was the only one on the panel who had a problem with the alleged cop killer being celebrated saying that he crossed a line when he began killing people to get his revenge for his alleged grievences. The rest of the panel concluded that Dorner "had a point" and that the unfolding story was theatric. Hill said that the saga...

    Liberals have a difficult time staying on point in an argument. Never was this so obvious in the aftermath of Marco Rubio (R, FL) and his response to President Obama's State of the Union speech. Mr. Rubio made a point-by-point analysis of why President Obama has failed the American people, which offering a myriad of practical, conservative solutions to the problems that face the United States. In response, the Left has responded in unison: "What an Idiot, He Drank Water!" That's right, for a moment during Mr. Rubio's response, he paused to drink from a bottle of water. ...Within hours...

    Michael Moore recently said that the only reason white people are buying a bunch of guns in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting is that they’re fearful. Afraid of black people specifically. He said, “Calm down, white people, and put away your guns.” So if we’re all buying guns and ammo out of fear of the black man, what emotion would cause this idiocy: a 6-year-old boy was suspended from school for making his hand in the shape of a gun and pretend shooting it, saying, “Pow,” as it was pointed at a fellow student. Were school officials actually...

    (CNSNews.com) - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is encouraging national retailer Hudson News to put hunting magazines where children can’t see them -- because, “Like other forms of casual or thrill violence, hunting spawns a dangerous desensitization to the suffering of others.” In a recent blog post, PETA wrote: “If children aren't mature enough to see nude human bodies, are they really mature enough to see people killing for ‘fun’?PETA has written to the CEO of Hudson News, Joseph DiDomizio, to request that his retail outlets handle hunting magazines the same way they would handle pornography or...

    Bette Midler has added her voice to those choosing to point the finger of blame for the Sept. 11th death of four Americans anywhere but Libya, and certainly not the White House. Forget freedom of speech, forget due process — someone has to pay. Cher wants something to happen to Pastor Terry Jones, even though it’s not his film which supposedly incited the violence.

    Are Democrats Starting to Lose It Already? One way in which this election is starting to resemble the 1980 election is that Democrats are starting to lose their grip and lash out in ways that even the mainstream media find over the top—like TV ads calling Romney a murderer, or Slow Joe Biden letting fly with the maxed-out race card.  Today one of MSNBC’s commentators, Toure (I guess he doesn’t have a first name?) charged Romney with the “niggerization” of Obama.  Not even Ron Burgundy could say “stay classy liberals” with a straight face at this point. In the 1980...
