  • Wishing for Trump’s impeachment? 5 reasons the next president could be even more dangerous

    Salon ^ | October 21, 2017 | Jacob Sugarman, Alternet
    From the moment he was elected, liberals have clung to the possibility, however remote, that Donald Trump will be removed from office. They've fallen for the conspiracy theories of #Resistance hucksters like Louise Mensch, Claude Taylor and Eric Garland, and continue to hold out hope the Mueller investigation will bring his corrupt presidency crashing down. Just this week, law professor and short-lived presidential candidate Lawrence Lessig laid out a series of preposterous if/then scenarios explaining how Hillary Clinton could still become president, almost a year after her shocking defeat. If Jane Mayer's latest feature is any indication, the left should...

    Getting named to Salon’s list of The 25 Conservatives Actually Worth Following On Twitter is either a grievous insult or a certification that you suck. Salon is saying that you’re not a carrier of a hardcore conservative contagion, and that the liberal establishment doesn’t need to worry. At best, Salon thinks you’re no threat. At worst, it considers you a fellow traveler. And some of these selectees really are straight-up Fredocons.You see the same thing with the True Conservative line-up at the New York Times. That’s where you find the king of creased-slacks lib-licking, David Brooks, in a perpetual tizzy...

    I don’t expect the people at Salon to understand much about guns. Most of them wouldn’t know the difference between fully-auto or semi-auto if it jumped up on their face and wiggled. Yet, as a large-ish news outlet, I do expect them to try and figure out just what is going on before they write something and not just pay lip service to things.

    The Venezuelan leader was often marginalized as a radical. But his brand of socialism achieved real economic gains For the last decade in American politics, Hugo Chavez became a potent political weapon - within a few years of his ascent, he was transformed from just a leader of a neighboring nation into a boogeyman synonymous with extremism. Regularly invoked in over-the-top political rhetoric, Chavez's name became a decontextualized epithet to try to attach to a political opponent so as to make that opponent look like a radical. Because of this, America barely flinched upon hearing the news that the Bush...

    Newsbusters.org ^ | May 24, 2017 | Tim Graham
    On Tuesday night, the leftish PBS documentary series Frontline aired a documentary titled “Bannon’s War” which seemed awfully reminscent of their anti-Cheney documentary suggestively titled “The Dark Side.” If you’re not a liberal PBS fanatic, it was another boring and predictable slog, attacking Bannon and Trump with lots of black and white photos and scary-sounding orchestral music. It was more eye-opening to see the Frontline director and writer Michael Kirk appearing on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to promote his anti-Bannon film on Tuesday morning, where made a flat-out false statement about Bannon’s resume, saying “He’d never been in the military.” What?...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) In a week where we’re getting a new Supreme Court justice, the alt-left has been supremely insane. They have moved into a complete panic about the world, blaming the end to their filibuster on divisive Republicans. Somehow they seem to forget a bit of the Supreme injustice they’ve inflicted on various right-leaning nominees. Does the term “Borking” remind you of something? Then, in the aftermath of President Trump’s reaction to Syria, they seemed perplexed. Salon ran with the ultimate, alt-lefty spin: “DID PUTIN GIVE PERMISSION?” Liberals...

    Open borders are the only path to defeating President Donald Trump, a Salon writer claims.In a piece titled “Everyone’s wrong on immigration: Open borders are the only way to defeat Trump and build a better world”, Salon writer Anis Shivani claims that there is no distinction between a legal and illegal immigrant; immigration law is “racist”; and “open borders are the only way to go.” Shivani adds: We are in a situation of chaos, breeding technical illegality, because federal regulations have become too complex. Comprehensive immigration reform of any type would make these laws even more cumbersome by drastically curtailing...

    I wrote a couple articles about Salon and their attempted justification of pedophilia. They ran posts from a guy named Todd Nickerson that tried to put a happy face on the depravity. Well, guess what? Now those articles have been removed. This is why you should always archive controversial articles from the mainstream media.

    In another entry, Williams lauds “the spoiled, immature, occasionally stabby Lindsay” from the show “You’re The Worst” for doing the mature thing and getting herself “an ‘abo-bo'” after lunch with a friend. . . . The top slot, though, goes to defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for defending abortion during the third presidential debate, while Williams slams President-elect Donald Trump for his allegedly-ignorant attack on third-trimester abortions.

    Townhall.com ^ | December 18, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    The left wing publication Salon is now hoping the Electoral College blocks President-elect Donald Trump from officially winning the presidency tomorrow, this time by stating (again) how the system is racist. Oh, and how Trump is the avatar of white supremacy: History often comes full circle. It can be darkly ironic as well. The Electoral College, an institution that helped to protect the white supremacist ignominy of black chattel slavery could now become the instrument used to stop Donald Trump, the avatar of contemporary white racism. Politics and history are messy and complicated. Many people prefer simple stories about America’s past...

    Feminists and empowerers-of-women everywhere can’t seem to figure out how to deal with incoming first lady Melania Trump. . . . Salon’s managing editor, Erin Keane, for example, sucked all the Christmas cheer out of the room Saturday with a 607-word tirade about Melania that validates every negative stereotype pinned on women.

    The holiday season is approaching and it’s the time for miracles. For Salon, the unabashedly liberal site, Christmas may have come early with an op-ed from a liberal, tenured history professor from Austin, Texas, who says that he’s had it with the media lying about President-elect Donald J. Trump. Okay—maybe it’s not really a holiday miracle, but a broken clock is right twice a day. Al Martinez was honing in on one of Trump’s remarks, which got mangled in the press: that Mexicans are rapists. He juxtaposed what Trump said, followed by what the media reported, along with the notion...

    Left-wing news media, from desiccated dowagers like the New York Times to strumpets like Salon and the Huffington Post, are dead and don't know it. They only see what they want to see. People who recently thought themselves so powerful – Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi; the list is very, very long – are walking around like regular people, but their existence is over. So many are dead and don't know it. They were murdered by their own hypocrisy. They claimed to be publishing the truth, but they offered only the half-truth of blind dogma. They claimed...

    There has been a lot of talk over this presidential campaign about the lack of enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton compared with the excitement and energy among Donald Trump’s followers. It is a bit overblown; there are plenty of highly enthusiastic Clinton fans who are very excited to see the first woman president. But it is nonetheless true that Trump has inspired a group of remarkably passionate and committed followers. And while many of these people have legitimate economic gripes that are finding expression in Trump’s “angry outsider” populism, what electrifies many of them is something else entirely. They chant, “Build...

    Salon Magazine has accused the Republican Party of being out of touch with “post-Christian America,” warning the GOP that if it doesn’t renege on its alliance with Christianity, it will soon become irrelevant. Ted Cruz’s failure to get the GOP nomination, Matthew Sheffield proclaims in Salon, “is a perfect window into trends that will set the pace of American politics for decades to come: Americans are moving away from Christianity, including people most likely to vote Republican.” To back up his claims, Sheffield cites the 2014 Pew Research study finding that 23 percent of Americans say they’re “unaffiliated” with any...

A flood light suddenly shines on your party apparatus, revealing its grossly corrupt machinations to fix the primary process and sink the Sanders campaign, and within a day you are on about the evil Russians having hacked into your computers to sabotage our elections — on behalf of Donald Trump, no less? Is this a joke? Are you kidding? Is nothing beneath your dignity? Is this how lowly you rate the intelligence of American voters? My...
