  • What I Learned From Watching New York Times Live Polls

    The BIG TAKEAWAY I got from watching their live polling is that ONLY about 1 in every 40 or 50 people bother to even answer their calls. I was surprised because I thought it would be more like at least 1 in 10. So isn't there something unusual about people who actually do answer their phones and respond to the polling questions? Most likely people with lots of time on their hands. I rarely answer my phone if I don't recognize who is calling me or the phone number. And those rare times I do answer and realize the stranger...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 7, 2018
    American political discourse gets worse by the day, a lesson we’ve seen first-hand again this weekend. The Twitter mob on the political left is claiming that our Saturday editorial headline, “Susan Collins Consents,” was intended as a sly “rape joke.” The editorial praised Maine Senator Collins for her thoughtful speech on Friday explaining her support for Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. We said her thorough consideration was an exemplary case of fulfilling the Senate’s “advice and consent” duty under the Constitution. Senators are supposed to offer their advice and then offer or withhold their consent for a presidential nominee. The...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh warned his friends that they might be evicted from the beachfront condo they rented in 1983, and wrote details alluding to the events that were expected to take place there, in a letter obtained by The New York Times. "Our problem down there might be too many people," Kavanaugh wrote in the letter. "We're going to have to decide while we are there who we want and don't want ... If half of Gonzaga/St. Johns starts coming, we might have to give the boot or else we might get it ourselves." "The danger of eviction...

    Full Headline: New York Times says it should not have assigned Kavanaugh critic to story: 'She is not a news reporter'The New York Times on Tuesday said the newspaper should not have assigned an opinion writer to co-byline a recent news story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's alleged involvement in a bar fight during his college years at Yale in 1985. The White House had criticized the newspaper for publishing the story because one of its writers, Emily Bazelon, previously criticized Kavanaugh as a "5th vote for a hard-right turn" on voting rights shortly after he was nominated to...
  • Say it ain’t so: Shocking NYT report claims Kavanaugh once threw ice at someone back in 1985

    Talk about desperate. On Monday, the New York Times published a shocking report that says Judge Brett Kavanaugh was once questioned by police after he allegedly threw ice at someone in a bar. According to the Times: The incident, which occurred in September 1985 during Mr. Kavanaugh’s junior year, resulted in Mr. Kavanaugh and four other men being questioned by the New Haven Police Department. Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him “for some unknown reason.” A witness to the fight said that Chris Dudley,...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly questioned by police in 1985 after he was accused of throwing ice on someone during a college bar fight. The New York Times obtained a report from the New Haven Police Department on Monday dating back to when Kavanaugh was an undergraduate student at Yale University. Kavanaugh, then 21 years old, was questioned along with four other men after an early morning altercation at Demery’s bar in September 1985. Kavanaugh was not arrested but was accused of throwing ice on someone for “some unknown reason,” according to the report obtained by The Times....

    A man who attended Yale University with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh went on the record on Sunday accusing Kavanaugh of "mischaracterizing" his alcohol consumption during last week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Chad Ludington in an interview with The New York Times said he saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption" multiple times, describing him as a "belligerent and aggressive" drunk. "It is truth that is at stake, and I believe that the ability to speak the truth, even when it does not reflect well upon oneself, is a paramount quality we seek in our nation’s most powerful judges,” Ludington said...

    "We're sorry for this tweet. In retrospect, a Twitter poll is insensitive in light of the gravity of this hearing." The New York Times was forced to issue a public apology Thursday after public backlash over a Twitter poll that asked whether people believed if Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony was credible. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegations that Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her in the 1980s. Shortly after Ford’s opening statement, the New York Times’ opinion Twitter account tweeted a poll asking people whether they believed if Ford was credible.

    The New York Times reported on Sunday that it was unable to corroborate the claims of a second accuser who says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in college. Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh thrust his penis into her face while she was drunk at a Yale University dormitory party. The New Yorker ran with Ramirez’s allegation on Sunday despite being unable to produce any firsthand witnesses or confirm that Kavanaugh was at the party where the incident was said to have occurred.The New York Times noted several paragraphs deep in a report that it chose not...

    The New York Times on Saturday defended its bombshell report on Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording conversations with President Trump last year and proposed the possibility of administration officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office. The Times's deputy managing editor Matt Purdy wrote in a statement Saturday that the newspaper stands by the reporting of its journalists, Mike Schmidt and Adam Goldman, who broke the story. Citing unnamed sources, the Times reported on Friday that Rosenstein made the remarks just weeks into his job last year following the sudden firing of...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is challenging a bombshell story in The New York Times alleging that he discussed secretly recording President Trump last year, calling it “inaccurate” and “factually incorrect.” Rosenstein in a statement released by the Justice Department also said that there was “no basis” to invoke the 25th Amendment, after the Times reported that he proposed recruiting various Cabinet officials to take such a step in order to remove Trump from office over his unfitness. “The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said. “I will not further comment on a story based on...

    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...

    It has been announced that President Trump is encouraging the Department of Justice to investigate the writer behind the anonymous New York Times “resistance” op-ed by an alleged Trump administration official that has caused such a ruckus in our national discourse the past few days. While many (non-lawyers) have reacted negatively to the suggestion by vaguely citing the “First Amendment” and the supposed lack of classified information in the piece, which has traditionally been the basis for most successful media-related prosecutions in the past decade, nonetheless there still remain potential rationales that could be utilized against the anonymous leaker.

    Grasping: South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interesting take on the “anonymous” op-ed published by a “senior Trump administration official” in The New York Times last week, in which the writer repeated earlier claims from others that the White House is in chaos and the president is unhinged. Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Graham said he believes the op-ed is the latest sign of panic from a Deep State that their alleged savior, special counsel Robert Mueller has zip, zero, nada when it comes to his original mandate of finding illicit, nefarious “Russian collusion” with the 2016...

    All of Washington is abuzz after The New York Times released an anonymous op-ed by a “senior” official in the Trump administration. Aside from seeking to undermine the result of an election, the anonymous author is arguing for a bad has-been policy agenda and approach to politics. The American people can roll their eyes and move on from the controversy. This is just another Republican who hasn’t learned anything from the Bush years, and thinks we are back in the year 2000. The answer: vote for Republicans—like the president—who have learned something from the last two decades. The anonymous author...
  • The author’s own words strongly suggest subterfuge. (NYT Anonymous Hit Piece)

    09/10/2018 6:13:40 AM PDT · by libstripper · 13 replies ^ | Sept 10, 2018 | David Catron
    The most surprising aspect of the furor surrounding the infamous unsigned New York Times Op-Ed, ostensibly written by a member of the Trump administration, is that anyone believes its author is a senior official. Assuming this person isn’t an employee of the Times, and it is by no means unknown for the Gray Lady’s journalists to fabricate quotes and attribute them to anonymous “officials,” the author of this hit piece is at most a mid-level staffer. Indeed, if this character is actually employed in the Trump administration, it is almost certainly at a level of insignificance verging on invisibility.

    President Trump should probably call off the hunt for the “senior official in the...administration" who the New York Times is claiming wrote a damning op-ed for the newspaper. Apparently the “senior official” claims to be part of a group of White House staff trying to thwart the president’s agenda from within. He also claims they seriously considered trying to depose the president using the 25th amendment of the Constitution. Serious stuff. But President Trump should relax and remember it is the New York Times after all. The paper has a scandalous history of lying about the seniority of officials it...
