  • Why Trump Won: Liberal Magazine Triggered That Washington Redskins Are Playing On Thanksgiving

    If there is one thing that is totally offensive this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s that the Washington Redskins are playing today. I’m not kidding. The liberal magazine The Nation was quite triggered about this and even reached out to Native American tribes to get a comment. Apparently, this move shows the NFL owners's “true colors, “or something. I’m hoping this a joke, or even satire, because no one cares about the Redskins name. No one. And it’s not going to change—ever. Yeah, I know all the posts about Thanksgiving being some genocidal holiday, or how history has given us the wrong...

    The Koch brothers might be part of buying Time magazine, and a former Time science editor is so panicked he wrote an article for the leftist magazine The Nation titled "Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy Time Magazine." Charles Alexander wrote about how his life’s work of screaming environmental bias may be about to go down the drain: Can you imagine what it would be like to see your life’s work suddenly go down the drain? I can—right now. As a former Time editor who spent 13 years editing the magazine’s coverage of environmental issues, I am in despair over...

    The Nation ^ | November 7, 2017 | By Katrina vanden Heuvel
    In the run-up to the 2016 election, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) dismissed the possibility that Donald Trumps popularity with rural and working-class voters spelled trouble for the Democratic ticket. For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, he proclaimed, reflecting the prevailing attitude within the party establishment. And you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin. One year after the election, its not clear that Democrats have learned their lesson. Many have deluded themselves into believing that Russian interference, and not the partys abysmal...

    <p>Distinctions about who is more deserving or patriotic are invidiousall migrants are rights-bearing human beings.</p> <p>The announcement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the Trump administration will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy is a devastating blow to those who are currently protected by it. (For more on how the rollback and six-month deadline works, see this piece by Julianne Hing.) We need to defend DACA while also pushing for permanent and legal protections for all migrants.</p>

    There is some discontent in the Nation. Staffers and contributors at the storied lefty magazine have raised concerns about an Aug. 9 piece by contributing writer Patrick Lawrence under the headline, A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Years DNC Hack. Based on technical evaluations, the article called into question the consensus view of U.S. intelligence agencies that the email disclosures last year from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) which assisted the campaign of Donald Trump were the work of Russian actors. The whole thing could have been the work of an internal leaker, notes the article....

    A bombshell report published Wednesday by avowedly liberal news magazine The Nation may have put the last nail in the coffin of the Russian hack narrative that has dominated the mainstream medias coverage for the last year. Author Patrick Lawrence assembles the findings of months of investigation by forensic computer experts and former NSA officials to conclude, quite categorically, what Breitbart News and other independent media outlets have suggested for nearly a year: there was no hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by the Russian government or anyone else last summer. An internal leaker is a much more likely...

    There was no hack of the Democratic National Committees system on July 5 last yearnot by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leaka download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNCs system. This casts serious doubt on the initial hack, as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer. Forensic investigations of documents made public two weeks prior to the July 5 leak by...

    Reporters on Monday fell for a fake "White House" document that supposedly showed President Donald Trump making unusual demands of his Israeli hosts during his trip abroad. The Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor on Friday shared what it claimed was Trump's demands ahead of a trip to Israel, including roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. .. Some elements of the purported demands were obvious jokes. The demand that microwaves remain unplugged was a mocking reference to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's bizarre comment that the appliance could be used for spying, and the request...

    On the day after Earth Day's "March for Science," it seems appropriate to point to a column by University of Michigan History Professor Juan Cole in The Nation, a far-far-left publication considered a credible and authoritative go-to-source by the liberal intelligentsia. On April 18, Cole, echoing statements made during their final years by Barack Obama and his administration's officials with establishment press acquiescence, nonsensically claimed that Syria's biggest problem during the past decade has been ... carbon dioxide. Hardly. According to Cole, CO2 is "a far more deadly gas" than what was used in "the gas attack in Syria on...

    <p>In the 21st century, Islam is an American faith tradition of terror, hate, violence and mass murder. But beyond that, the Mother Mosque of America, once known as The Rose of Fraternity Lodge and also known as Moslem Temple, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is the longest-standing mosque in North America. Built in 1934, it is the second oldest after the mosque built in tiny Ross, North Dakota, which was built in 1929.</p>

     enator Ted Cruz surfaced as a possible nominee for US attorney general Tuesday night, following a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in Manhattan. A Cruz spokeswoman did not confirm nor explicitly deny the reports, telling telling Bloomberg, “Cruz is focused on serving Texans in the Senate. He was there today to offer help in promoting the conservative policies that were campaigned on and that he’s long fought for.” It’s those exact policies that should raise significant alarm about his potential nomination as attorney general. Throughout his failed presidential campaign, Cruz promised to focus law-enforcement efforts on abortion groups, Muslims,...

    Sidney Blumenthal, a close adviser to Bill and Hillary Clinton, has reportedly undertaken an email campaign to defend a controversial book written by his son that compares Israel to Nazi Germany. The book, written by Max Blumenthal, accuses Israel of being a fascist country and has chapter titles explicitly comparing the Jewish State to Nazi Germany, such as The Concentration Camp and The Night of Broken Glass. According to the Nation columnist Eric Alterman, who harshly reviewed the book, long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal has sent nasty emails to our mutual friends and professional acquaintances attacking him for telling the...

I think we all ought to pause with what happened in Orlando today, stated ABCs Matt Dowd when asked if third party candidates could gain supporters, And if we understand that all of the hateful thoughts become hateful words become hateful actions.

    In June 2013, North Carolina passed the most sweeping voting restrictions in the country, requiring strict voter ID, cutting early voting and eliminating same-day registration, pre-registration for 16 and 17-year-olds, and out-of-precinct voting, among other political reforms. The state defended its cutbacks in court last summer by invoking, of all places, New York. The state of New York has no early voting as opposed to North Carolina that has ten days of early voting, lawyer Thomas Farr said. The state of New York has no same-day registration. The state of New York has no out-of-precinct voting. The state of New...

    Hillary Clinton loves black people. And black people love Hillary—or so it seems. Black politicians have lined up in droves to endorse her, eager to prove their loyalty to the Clintons in the hopes that their faithfulness will be remembered and rewarded. Black pastors are opening their church doors, and the Clintons are making themselves comfortably at home once again, engaging effortlessly in all the usual rituals associated with “courting the black vote,” a pursuit that typically begins and ends with Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously. Doing something concrete to improve the conditions under which...

    Directly after a mass shooting, in the minutes or hours or days between the first trickle of news and when police find a suspect or make arrests, it is very difficult to know what to do. Some people demand political action, like greater gun control; others call for prayer. In the aftermath of a violent shooting spree in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday, in which at least 14 victims are reported to have died, people with those differing reactions quickly turned against one another. For example: Here’s the Washington editor at the liberal publication The Nation, George Zornick, on reactions...

    Scott Kevin Walker, fresh from a free-spending yet folksy campaign in which he carried his lunch in a brown paper bag and promised to create 250,000 jobs, delivered his first inaugural address as governor of Wisconsin on January 3, 2011. I stand before you not as the governor of one party or another, or the governor of one part of the state or another, he declared. Today, I stand before you as the governor for all of the people in the state of Wisconsin. Days later, Walker traveled from Madison, the state capital, to Beloit, a working-class town battered by...
