  • Newsbusters:NBC Whines and Frets About North Korea Summit, But Defends Iran’s Deal

    While broadcast networks ABC and CBS were skeptical about how the U.S.-North Korea agreement would turn out (a legitimate concern considering North Korea’s history of reneging on such deals), NBC Nightly News took a noticeably harsher tone and railed against President Trump. This decrying of Trump’s agreement comes after NBC has gone to bat time and time again for the radical Islamic regime of Iran and against our President.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he is "very, very concerned" about the upcoming meeting with North Korea, and hopes negotiations and any possible future agreement aren't just a "PR show." The Republican made the comments on CBS News' "Face the Nation," after President Trump announced he is reinstating the June 12th meeting with North Korea in Singapore, days after canceling it. Mr. Trump declared the summit a go after meeting with top North Korean official Kim Yong Chol at the White House, before he had even read a letter delivered from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kasich emphasized that...

    Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich is pushing Republican leadership to stand up to President Donald Trump on tariffs and immigration. […] Kasich urged Republicans in Congress “to do whatever they can do legislatively” to push back against Trump’s decisions to impose tariffs on several ally nations and end an Obama-era program to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. …

    Trump critic and Republican Sen. Jeff Flake suggested Sunday that the president’s words and actions have left him open to a primary challenge if he seeks reelection. “If he continues on the path that he's on, that is going to leave a huge swath of voters looking for someone else,” Flake, who is not seeking reelection in 2018, told ABC News’ “This Week.” He's probably inviting a Republican challenge.” Flake also said Trump’s continued path could result in a “diminished base” and “a huge swath of voters in the middle that may be looking for something else” -- including a...

    Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, is urging his fellow progressives to block President-elect Donald Trump from carrying out his policy plans for his first 100 days in office, including a suggestion to “boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything.” Reich’s “First 100 Day Resistance Agenda” also urges Democrats in Congress to draw out the hearings of Trump’s Cabinet nominees while progressive journalists “dig into their backgrounds”. “Our version of ‘Drill, baby, drill’ is ‘Sue, baby, sue’,” he continued. “Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.” He also recommended “coordinated fund-raising”...

    Sour grapes. That’s how Donald Trump’s closest advisers see Democrats’ complaints that Moscow hacked their private emails this election season in a bid to sow discord among their supporters and sway the election toward Republicans. The pushback comes ahead of the Electoral College vote, which was expected to make official Trump’s election win and pave his way to take office on Jan. 20. “Let’s assume it’s true,” Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday of Russian interference in the election. “There’s no evidence that shows that the outcome of the election was changed because of a couple dozen...

    I know how to be a gracious loser. I could have let it go last week when Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, challenged me to look her in the eye and say she ran a campaign that gave white supremacists a platform. I considered for a split second. I knew you were supposed to be gracious when you come for the post-election forum at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. But I decided this was a year where normal rules don’t apply. Speaking the truth was more important.

    Donald Trump ran a campaign of racist demagoguery against Muslim Americans, Hispanic immigrants, and black protesters. He indulged the worst instincts of the American psyche and winked to the stream of white nationalists and anti-Semites who backed his bid for the White House. Millions of Americans voted for this campaign, thus elevating white nationalism and white reaction to the Oval Office.

    So he won. The nation takes a deep breath. Raw ego and proud illiteracy have won out and a severely learning-disabled man with a real character problem will be president. We are so exhausted from thinking about this election, millions of people will take up leaf-raking and garage cleaning with intense pleasure. We liberal elitists are wrecks. The Trumpers had a whale of a good time, waving their signs, jeering at the media, beating up protesters, chanting "Lock her up" -- we elitists just stood and clapped. Nobody chanted "Stronger Together." It just doesn't chant.

    By Brian Stelter November 08, 2016 17:52PM EST Univision executives like to say that the road to the White House runs through the Hispanic community. "This argument will be tested today," Univision's top anchorman Jorge Ramos said Tuesday. Donald Trump defied the argument, declining Ramos's repeated entreaties for an interview, despite the fact that Univision (UVN) is the dominant TV network among Spanish speakers in the United States.(snip) "The only other candidate that didn't want to talk to us was Bob Dole in 1996, and lost," Ramos told CNNMoney. "Regardless of the results, I think Trump will be the last...

    During a keynote address Wednesday at the U.S. Chamber Institute's Legal Reform Summit, Mitt Romney made a series of subtle jabs at the Republican nominee on his business platform, in front of a friendly audience used to Republican business orthodoxy. After opening with a familiar refrain—“I get asked on a regular basis, boy, why aren't you running this year. I ask myself that now and then, too"—Romney delivered a speech that seemed to dig at a few of Donald Trump's policy positions without ever mentioning him by name. ... “I don’t think either candidate for president has said they’re going...

    The time had come to fire Khloé Kardashian. But first, Donald Trump had a question. “What’s your charity?” Trump asked. They were filming “The Celebrity Apprentice,” the reality-TV show where Trump schooled the faded and the semi-famous in the arts of advertising, salesmanship and workplace in­fighting. Most weeks, one winner got prize money for charity. One loser got fired. ... “I’m going to give $20,000 to your charity,” Trump said, according to a transcript of that show. He didn’t. After the show aired in 2009, Kardashian’s charity did receive $20,000. But it wasn’t from Trump. Instead, the check came from...

    President Barack Obama sought to reassure millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally that he has no plans to deport them, while acknowledging that the Supreme Court’s deadlock Thursday marks the end of the road for his push to reform the U.S. immigration system. Though Obama predicted an immigration overhaul is inevitable, he conceded it won’t happen while he’s president due to opposition from the current Congress. Working to lay the groundwork for the next president to pick up the effort, he cast the election in November as a referendum on how the country would treat its immigrants. “We’re going...

    Radio screamer Mark Levin’s approach at selling his nonsense can be captured within the following quote: If you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you. If you really make them think, they’ll hate you. ~ Don Marquis Levin’s approach relies on gaslighting an audience into “thinking they’re thinking“. This was never more clear than today when Mark Levin pens an article calling candidate Donald Trump “A Globalist“, and then assembles a word salad of counter-intuitive arguments to prove a ridiculously false assertion.However, there is a profound benefit to seeing Mr. Levin completely remove the mask of his crony-constitutional...

    Accusing Senator Ted Cruz of voter fraud, Donald Trump today argued that Mr. Cruz "stole" the election in Iowa. "That is why all of the polls were so wrong, and why he got far more votes than anticipated," Mr. Trump said on Twitter, suggesting no one predicted that Mr. Cruz would win: Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016 Mr. Trump then went further, saying Mr. Cruz committed fraud, suggesting that Cruz's...
