  • Professor, MSNBC Contributor:Reparations is the Answer to "Patriarchal White Supremacy" that Runs US

    Pundit Press ^ | 4/27/15 | Aurelius
    Dr. Dorothy E. Roberts, who is described by Penn Law as "an acclaimed scholar of race, gender and the law," believes that the United States is run by "patriarchal white supremacists" and that reparations are, in part, the answer to inequity between African Americans and whites. Dr. Roberts teaches at the University of Pennsylvania and has made appearances on MSNBC. Writing publicly, Dr. Roberts has made her sentiments on race relations in the United States known. The United States, she believes, systematically oppresses people of color. She goes as far as to say that studies on wealth must account for...

    In a previous column, Towhall.com highlighted the upset and ascendancy of Republican Larry Hogan to Governor of Maryland.Today, conservatives frustrated with Washington bickering, pandering, and inaction should look to another governor, in an otherwise overlooked part of the country: Maine’s Paul LePage.Born into deep poverty in Lewiston Maine, LePage was the first of eighteen children in a traditional Catholic family. His father beat him repeatedly, and the impoverished mother could only look on. Once LePage’s father abused him so thoroughly, Paul ended up in the hospital, where the father attempted to bribe him into lying about his brutal beating. The...

    Charting Course ^ | 4/23/15 | Steve Berman
    “Taxes for thee, but not for me” is the liberal mantra.  The celebrity-worshipping elite Left exalts the “middle-class” while not deigning to join it, and certainly doesn’t lower itself to such plebeian pursuits as paying taxes. While Melissa Harris-Perry laments the plight of inner-city black women (and beclowns herself by asking Eric Holder to “quack for us”), she also accumulates quite a lot of loot along the way.  In 2012, she tweeted pictures of her latest renovation project in New Orleans—not her first round of “This Old House”--she and hubby James Perry renovated another fixer-upper in 2009.

    Democrats are fond of accusing Republicans of being hypocrites on a variety of issues, but particularly when it comes to tax policy. The liberal comedian Bill Maher recently claimed that Republicans expose themselves to this critique when they champion the value of hard work and perseverance while simultaneously opposing the inheritance tax. “If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do, how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world? They’ve never known the dignity of work either,” Maher insisted recently. “Shouldn’t we...

    The second day of the New Hampshire Republican Party’s “First in the Nation” leadership summit kicked off Saturday morning with a speech from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, a former GOP congressman. As you might expect, the reception was lukewarm at first — especially when he tried to land a series of fratboy-ish jokes — but became much warmer when he talked actual policy and tried to stir the crowd into rallying around conservative principles for the 2016 election. But let’s run through his awkward jokes: Scarborough approached the stage to noticeably tepid applause (though, to be fair, this was the first...

The IRS filed the notice on April 6th and filed a lien on the Perrys, the report said. Harris-Perry said she was aware of her debt, but not the tax lien. She and her husband paid $21,721 of her debt on Wednesday; the remaining debt of $43,581 covers a tax period that ended on December 31st, 2013.

    According to a new Rasmussen poll, nearly six in 10 voters believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the next president. But perception is not reality, as an MSNBC poll seems to indicate.The poll, which appeared on the MSNBC website on Tuesday morning, shows that 86% of MSNBC readers who responded would not vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election. Only 13% responded in the affirmative and a mere 2% said “maybe.”The poll, while not scientific, strongly suggests that progressives do not prefer to have a baggage-laden career politician as their party’s standard bearer in 2016.

Yet when Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ presumptive 2016 presidential nominee, held a news conference about her private email use last week — a media frenzy that functioned, albeit inadvertently, as the informal launch to her highly anticipated campaign — less than 13 percent of the total cable news audience was tuned to the network. The low turnout wasn’t a fluke: Year-to-date, MSNBC’s daytime viewership is down 21 percent overall and 41 percent in the coveted...

    It’s been two days since MSNBC host Toure Neblett made a shockingly racist and anti-Semitic comment to a person claiming to be a descendent of Holocaust survivors. “The power of Whiteness” is what Neblett callously told a poster Friday evening on Twitter (screen name @hope_and_chains) who responded to Neblett’s praise for an article on so-called “white privilege” by saying, “My family survived a concentration camp, came to the US w/ nothing, LEGALLY, and made it work. #SORRYFORBEINGWHITETHOUGHYOUGUYS” Neblett, who has maintained Twitter silence since Friday night, has been blasted on Twitter since then, most notably by @redsteeze who Tweeted Holocaust...

    One America News, which launched patriotically on July 4, 2013, is something of an anomaly in the cable news universe. First of all, it's based in San Diego, California. The channel's news coverage is intended to be straight down the middle, even though its talk shows are pretty staunchly conservative. The network does not cover sports or pop culture news. Like Lahren, many of its news anchors and reporters are young. And for now, it airs no commercials. The network may want to emulate Fox's success, but it's taking a very different path to get there. Robert and Charles Herring,...

    Media Matters, which describes itself on its web site as a, "progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media," has taken aim at MSNBC's Chris Matthews for what it says is a trend of "sexist displays." Media Matters has started a "take action" campaign, urging readers to contact MSNBC and express their disapproval of Matthews current attacks on Sen. Hillary Clinton and past comments. Karl Frisch, Media Matters spokesperson, tells TVNewser, "We encourage people to take action for a variety of reasons — being able to point to a clear...

    MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell deferred to State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on the Friday edition of her program, and let the Obama administration flack attack the 47 Republican senators who signed an open letter to Iran's leaders. Mitchell led into the segment by playing President Obama's condescending "I'm embarrassed for them" and "it's close to unprecedented" shots at the senators, and gave Psaki a platform to promote the administration's talking points on the issue. [video below] The journalist first pointed out that Secretary of State John Kerry's upcoming trip to Switzerland for "another round of nuclear talks with Iran negotiations –...

    Wisconsin and Minnesota have long made fascinating bookends. As longtime readers may recall, the two neighboring states have similar sizes, similar populations, similar demographics, and even similar climates. But they don’t necessarily have similar politics, at least not lately. In the 2010 elections, the Badger State elected Scott Walker (R) governor and gave control of the legislature to Republicans, while the Gopher State made Mark Dayton (D) governor and, in 2012, elected a Democratic legislature*. The former got to work targeting collective bargaining and approving tax cuts, while the latter raised taxes on the wealthy and boosted in-state investments. Nearly...

    NBC is once again under fire from Iraq War veterans — this time for a correspondent’s claims that sniper Chris Kyle was “racist.” More than 20 retired generals and admirals penned a letter to Comcast, which owns NBC, following a Jan. 29 interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Middle East reporter Ayman Mohyeldin, according to a report in the Washington Examiner. “Some of what people have described as his racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims when he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment,” Mohyeldin said of Kyle, whose career was recently the...

    On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean took aim at Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), who took the lead on a letter to the leadership to Iran that warns the regime that any nuclear deal made with the Obama administration and not approved by the Congress faces the risk of not being honored by future administrations.

    MSNBC is not known for its showcasing conservative voices. When conservatives are invited, they are ruthlessly grilled and struggle to get a word in edgewise. With this in mind, it was surprising to see Andrew McCarthy of National Review on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Even more surprising was his comments on Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Willie Geist got to the heart of the discussion by asking McCarthy what his stake was in Clinton email controversy, “Is this about security? Is it about accountability and transparency?” In response McCarthy affirmed, “I'm a national security guy. I’ve been worried about Benghazi...
  • Andrea Mitchell: Hillary Clinton Private Email Scandal Lends "Legitimacy" To Re-Open Benghazi Case

    On her MSNBC program Friday, NBC's Andrea Mitchell said the Hillary Clinton private e-mail scandal has brought new legitimacy to the House Select Committee on Benghazi. "The Benghazi investigation by the Select Committee was viewed by many as overkill, that it had all been cleared up back two years ago," Mitchell said. "And the fact is that some people, certainly the partisans for Hillary Clinton thought it was a witch hunt. Now, they can say with some legitimacy we didn't have the e-mails and we know it's out there." ANDREA MITCHELL, NBC NEWS: The Benghazi investigation by the Select Committee...
