  • No, Mike Pence Did Not Deliver Empty Boxes To A Nursing Home For A Publicity Stunt

    A viral clip from comedian Jimmy Kimmel was edited to remove some important context. On his Thursday night show, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel used a clip of Pence at the nursing home to suggest there was nothing inside the boxes. "Since it was going so well and also because he didn't realize he had a mic on, Magic Mike decided to keep it going," said Kimmel. "Listen in closely here." Kimmel then cut to video showing the vice president inquiring about the last boxes in the van before being told they were empty. "Well, can I carry the empty ones?...

    Former Obama administration defense official Evelyn Farkas testified under oath that she lied during an MSNBC interview when she claimed to have evidence of alleged collusion, a newly declassified congressional transcript of her testimony shows. Farkas testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on June 26, 2017. Lawmakers keyed in on an appearance Farkas made on MSNBC on March 2, 2017, in which she urged intelligence community bureaucrats to disseminate within the government and potentially even leak to media any incriminating information they had about Trump or his aides. “I had a fear that somehow that information would...
  • CNN: Trump Dislikes Obama Because Michelle Is Hotter Than Melania

    CNN’s Don Lemon went on a bizarre rant Sunday night accusing President Donald Trump of possessing a severe aversion to his predecessor because Michelle Obama is apparently prettier and more accomplished than First Lady Melania Trump. “What is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin?” Lemon asked rhetorically to kick off his creepy monologue filled with awkward silences. Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn’t need daddy’s help? Wife is more accomplished, better looking? I don’t know, what is it? What is it about him? That he’s a black...
  • Vanity: Shameful Appearance by US Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Mn) on "This Week"

    US Senator Amy Klobuchar, the failed Democratic presidential candidate from Minnesota, was on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" shilling for Joe Biden's campaigning and making outrageous and false statements about President Trump using Democratic talking points. It was hard to flag all of the lies and distortions, but one really took the prize: Klobuchar claimed that Trump had advised the public "to chug bleach" to kill the COVID-19 virus. Of course, Trump never said any such thing, but Stephanopoulos made no attempt to correct any of Klobuchar's falsehoods. Maybe Klobuchar imagines herself as the Vice Presidential pick for "Clueless Joe."

    Looks like eco-extremists in the liberal media aren’t the only ones who’ll use the coronavirus pandemic to push their climate change talking points. Now, The Washington Post’s self-proclaimed “conservative” opinion writer is using the pandemic to spew the same eco-propaganda nonsense others on the left have at President Donald Trump and Republicans. Jennifer Rubin wrote a column headlined “Can the Coronavirus Obliterate Some Republican Myths?” She babbled that the much-hyped “climate-change crisis” finds a “parallel in the global covid-19 pandemic.” “Both the pandemic and climate change are inescapable facts with deadly outcomes unless our behavior radically changes,” Rubin quipped.

    Even if the country cut its rate of transmission in half — a tall order — some 650,000 people might become infected in the next two months. “We’re looking at something that’s catastrophic on a level that we have not seen for an infectious disease since 1918,” said Jeffrey Shaman, a professor of environmental health sciences at Columbia and the leader of the research team, referring to the Spanish flu... at least 1 in 5 Americans will be under orders to stay home in the coming days, and more states are expected to follow suit.

    The news media and Democrats are quickly seizing on a government email to paint a misleading picture that the Trump administration requested the Pentagon withhold military aid to Ukraine just 91 minutes after President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The decision to withhold aid was actually announced seven days prior to Trump’s July 25 phone call while the email in question was part of a weeklong discussion about withholding aid and was unrelated to the call, the Trump administration explained.

    The reaper came for another editorial cartoonist over the weekend. The Brunswick News newspaper group in Canada canceled Michael de Adder’s contract a couple of days after he distributed a cartoon on Twitter depicting Donald Trump on the fairway, golf club in hand, asking two face-down, drowned migrants, “Do you mind if I play through?” De Adder told the Washington Post that his editor didn’t say why his contract was being canceled, but he surmises it was because of his history of Trump-critical cartoons—which he didn’t offer to Brunswick News publications. “The only subject I was told that was taboo...

    In one of the most painfully awkward interviews in recent memory, progressive author Naomi Wolf appeared on the BBC 3 to promote her upcoming book, Outrages: Sex, Censorship, and the Criminalization of Love — only to be informed by the interviewer that her soon-to-be-released work is entirely based on Wolf’s own misunderstanding of a dated legal term ..... During a radio interview with the BBC’s Matthew Sweet yesterday, Wolf — as well as the rest of the world — found out that her new book is wildly fallacious. The interview quickly went viral. “I found several dozen executions,” Wolf said...

    The left and its compliant media are willfully reporting false news to the American people. Whether it is a symptom of mass hysteria that is the genesis for this confirmation bias-style reporting or an intentional maneuver to spread anti-Trump propaganda, its effect is toxic and pernicious.

    During a 2008 interview with then-Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, ABC's Charlie Gibson asked whether Alaska's proximity to Russia offered Palin unique "insight." Palin responded, "They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." In a Saturday Night Live skit, comic Tiny Fey mocked in this exchange with comic Amy Poehler, who portrayed Hillary Clinton. Fey as Palin: "You know, Hillary and I don't agree on everything ..." Poehler as Clinton: "Anything. I believe that diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy." Fey as Palin: "And...

    America got conned again. It was all a big set-up. A ruse. A dirty canard. The whole thing was one giant lie. And everybody peddling it — from House Democratic leaders, to Senate Democrats running for president, to the Senate Republican who reported the whole thing in the first place, to the roaring lions of the Great White Media — knew it was a lie. Sure, there are some — take sleazy lawyer Michael Avenatti, for instance — who are so monumentally stupid that he probably did not know that it was all a big con. It is not uncommon...

    NBC News has finally, a full day after being called out for printing the fake news, admitted that its article published on Christmas alleging President Donald Trump snubbed the troops during the holidays this year is incorrect. NBC has altered its headline and story, changing their meaning to remove the original anti-Trump thrust, and added an extended editor’s note beyond the original editor’s note appended when it was first discovered to be an inaccurate piece. The new editor’s note admits in no uncertain terms that NBC News printed fake news, and that it was only leaving the article up in...

    The widespread image of the polar bear and the threat of its extinction is perhaps the world’s most powerful image of climate change, but for at least one of the large environmentalist groups behind it, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), this image has become a dilemma. According to UN scientific assessments, the polar bear does not face extinction, and the common understanding that it does now stands in the way of more nuanced communication about climate change in the Arctic. “When the symbol gets bigger than the region itself and people don’t realize that the polar bear is...

    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...

    Last Saturday, I was part of a protest against a "Drag Queen Story Hour" being held at a public library in Mobile, Alabama. These events, which are happening in libraries and public schools all across the nation, are one of the newer weapons in the homofascist arsenal, and they target little children from three to eight years old. The events are grotesque spectacles of men dressed garishly as "women" reading "children's" books (that include feminist, homosexual and "transgender" themed stories) to little ones whose parents foolishly choose to bring them. A December 2016 column by a writer for the...

    Following the recent murder of a random Bay Area black woman by a random Bay Area white man, Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway took to social media to demand all white people recognize the “white privilege” that protects them from murder. “The murder of Nia Wilson- may she rest in the power and peace she was denied here- is unspeakable AND MUST NOT be met with silence. She is not a hash tag; she was a black woman and she was murdered in cold blood by a white man,” she wrote. “White people- including me, including you- must take into...

    I can smell Donald Trump’s fear from here. His panic. His anxiety. And yet, I don’t have a full picture of what is causing it. The only people who know what has been discovered in the Russian election meddling probe are Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team, and they aren’t talking. But President Trump no doubt knows far more about it than the rest of us, and what he knows — or what he fears — appears to be a consuming preoccupation. He tweets about the investigation constantly. Part of this is an overt play to bend public opinion,...

    On June 14, 2016, the Washington Post reported that Russian hackers had broken into the Democratic National Committee’s files and gained access to its research on Donald Trump. A political world already numbed by Trump’s astonishing rise barely took notice. News reports quoted experts who suggested the Russians merely wanted more information about Trump to inform their foreign-policy dealings. By that point, Russia was already broadcasting its strong preference for Trump through the media. Yet when news of the hacking broke, nobody raised the faintest suspicions that Russia wished to alter the outcome of the election, let alone that Trump...
