  • WaPo: It's beyond debate that Donald Trump is unfit to be president

    DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON and Republican Donald Trump will debate on national television for the first time Monday night, and the stakes could not be higher. The presidency and, by extension, the country's future - maybe the world's - could hinge on what they say and how they say it. Or so we have been told - in breathless pre-event speculation about everything from whether the moderator, NBC's Lester Holt, will intervene to correct a candidate who strays from the truth, to whether one candidate or the other will be able to goad his or her opponent into a campaign-altering gaffe...

    On Thursday night, Donald Trump finally acknowledged an obvious, proven fact: President Obama was born in the United States. Or, rather, Trump's campaign said that he acknowledged it, in a statement that was itself riddled with falsehoods. "Hillary Clinton’s campaign first raised this issue to smear then-candidate Barack Obama in her very nasty, failed 2008 campaign for President," the statement begins. That's untrue — and it's been fact-checked any number of times. In 2011, Politico outlined the origins; in May, our fact checkers dubbed it ridiculous. "This type of vicious and conniving behavior is straight from the Clinton Playbook. As...

Trump in a rushed-to-launch book. “More than “two dozen” Washington Post reporters contributed to a book published Tuesday that attacks Donald Trump.” (Daily Caller) That should tell us what WaPo reporters...

    Just one example of how the secular media is going to spin, spin, and spin some more in the quest to provide cover for pro-abort, pro-homosexual politicians. (us.fotolia.com/JJAVA) UPDATED (9:15pm, Pacific; July 22): Sen. Kaine has been chosen to be Hillary Clinton's running mate. In the meantime, CWR's managing editor, Catherine Harmon, reminded me of this interesting story from last year:  U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, a practicing Catholic and former missionary, had a clear message Wednesday for Pope Francis: Allow women to become priests. Kaine said ending the church's centuries-old rule that only men can be ordained would be the most significant...

    The Washington Post has built a sizable army of reporters to dig into every facet of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's life under orders of new owner Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder and Democratic Party donor. Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward revealed Wednesday that the Post has assigned 20 staffers to Trump. In addition the paper plans a book. "There's a lot we don't know," he told the National Association of Realtors convention in Washington. "We have 20 people working on Trump, we're going to do a book, we're doing articles about every phase of his life," he added.

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is using the Washington Post and a team of 20 “diggers” to take down Donald Trump. Bezos bought the Washington Post and is using it to dig up dirt on Trump to prevent him from being president. Trump responds in the video below: “He’s using the Washington Post for power so that politicians in Washington don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed… He’s using that for political power against me and against other people. And I tell you what, we can’t let him get away with it… What he’s doing is wrong. – Donald Trump

    Six months ago, I made a reckless vow. With Donald Trump dominating in polls, I said I’d eat a column — 18 column inches of toxic newsprint, wood-pulp, ink and all — if Trump won the Republican presidential nomination. My rationale: “Americans are better than Trump,” and Republican primary voters wouldn’t nominate “a candidate who expresses the bigotry and misogyny that Trump has.” his prediction still looks viable. More than 60 percent of Republican primary voters have rejected Trump so far, and there’s a decent chance Republicans can at least force the nationalist demagogue into a contested convention. They know...

    TMZ video shows Washington Post reporter Ben Terris shaking Trump campaign manger Corey Lewandowski’s hand AFTER Lewandowski supposedly assaulted Michelle Fields. And now Lewandowski is patting Terris on the back. Terris’s testimony was key in the early days of the Fields hoax. Terris asked Fields in audio that Fields released if he could use Fields’s hoaxed story. That’s right. Terris shakes Lewandowski’s hand just seconds after Corey “really just almost threw you on the ground.” Michelle Fields’s boyfriend Jamie Weinstein is friends with Ben Terris.

    Protesters at recent Donald Trump campaign rallies have made almost as much news as the presidential candidate himself — getting sucker-punched, landing sucker punches, stopping traffic, stopping the rallies, claiming they were banned from the events. Brandon Tatum, an officer in the Tucson Police Department, went to a Trump rally on Saturday as a civilian to see what was going on. In a subsequent video, he said he thought there was going to be “a full-fledged riot” at the event — but not because of Trump’s supporters. The protesters were the problem, Tatum said. “These people were acting so outrageous,”...

Unable to come up with anything substantive, what he’s produced is one of the most juvenile screeds ever to appear in any major newspaper: "When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump’s “New York values,” it wasn’t entirely clear what he was implying.

  • Chris Christie comes under scrutiny for counterterrorism claims

    Ten days after the Paris terrorist attacks, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie trumpeted his connections to Americans who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001. "For me, it is a daily occurrence to look into the eyes of the people who lost their husbands and wives, their fathers and mothers, their sisters and brothers, their sons and daughters," he told the Council on Foreign Relations in November. "The threat is not minimal." A little more than a week later, after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif., those words seemed prophetic -- and the Republican presidential hopeful shifted emphasis from...

    Some news over the weekend suggests that there has been some meaningful movement in the Republican presidential race. Specifically, recent polls show that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has moved ahead of Donald Trump in Iowa and is gaining on him elsewhere. Maybe this is the start of a significant shift in the race, although it is still a little early and most voters are still undecided about who to vote for. But Cruz does have a major advantage over Trump, one that is perhaps beginning to make a difference. The advantage is this: Cruz is a Republican. And Republican voters...

    The presidency has changed Barack Obama. His hair has gone gray, which is to be expected, and he looks older, which is also to be expected, but his eloquence has been replaced by petulance and he has lost the power to persuade, which is something of a surprise. You can speculate that if the Obama of today and not Winston Churchill had led Britain in World War II, the Old Vic theater would now be doing “Hamlet” in German. The president has lost his voice, that is certain. The numbers say so. Obama has the approval of only 44 percent of...

    Donald Trump hadn't said 300 words during his announcement speech before he called Mexican immigrants rapists. Even before that, he'd already made fun of his sweaty opponents and President Obama. But by word 300, he'd already made the comment that prompted a backlash from Univision — a backlash that drew new attention to his hard-line stance on immigration and, by extension, moved him into first place in the polls. Trump mocked Vietnam veteran John McCain's war record. He made a comment about Fox News's Megyn Kelly that was widely interpreted as referring to her menstruation. He retweeted a joke about...

    [SNIP] THE FACTS As we have explained before, the only thing close to a 200,000 figure is an announcement in September by Secretary of State John Kerry that the United States was prepared to boost the number of total refugees accepted from around the world in fiscal 2016, from 70,000 to 85,000. Then, in 2017, Kerry said that 100,000 would be accepted. That adds up to 185,000 over two years. But this would be the total number of refugees, not the number of refugees from Syria. By law, the president every fiscal year sets the maximum number of refugees the...

    The Washington Post appears to be struggling a bit to cover today's blockbuster story about the undercover video of Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling organs from aborted fetuses. First, they changed the headline to something that's far more friendly to Planned Parenthood without noting the change. **IMANGE ON LINK** Second, the story is substantively wrong. Here's what the Post wrote: The Center for Medical Progress, which recorded and edited the video, says the footage proves that Planned Parenthood is breaking the law by selling fetal organs. But the video does not show Nucatola explicitly talking about selling organs. The Planned...
  • WaPo: Even the backstory on Kerry’s climate-change brag was a lie

    Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler uses a “Pinocchio” scale to assign a level of egregiousness to lies he uncovers, with four Pinocchios as the maximum … until now. Secretary of State John Kerry earned himself the full complement two weeks ago from Kessler for bragging about his management of the first global-warming hearing in the Senate, a hearing that he not only didn’t arrange but didn’t even attend. Kessler dug deeper on the tall tales emanating from the event, and found that one of the real organizers has been lying about what took place in the hearing in order to...
  • ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ did not happen in Ferguson

    This phrase became a rallying cry for Ferguson residents, who took to the streets to protest the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. Witness accounts spread after the shooting that Brown had his hands raised in surrender, mouthing the words “Don’t shoot” as his last words before being shot execution-style. The gesture of raised hands became a symbol of outrage over mistreatment of unarmed black youth by police. That narrative was called into question when a St. Louis County grand jury could not confirm those testimonies. And a recently released Department of Justice...
  • Fact checking Hillary Clinton’s news conference (WaPo punts on Pinocchio rating)

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s news conference March 10 left many questions unanswered, and so we were reluctant to fact check it immediately. But enough information has emerged in recent days to at least take a preliminary step at annotating some of her key points. We aim to update this as additional information emerges. At this point, given the fluid situation, we are holding off on issuing a Pinocchio rating but we may do so in the future. Certainly, her claim that her e-mails were immediately preserved has now been called into question — as has her statement that she complied with...

    ... At a private dinner Wednesday for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely candidate for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said: “I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.” Mr. Giuliani has dived off the deep end before, so there was nothing all that surprising in his latest poison. But as Post columnist Dana Milbank points out, his remarks presented an early test of...
  • ‘NAACP Bombing’ . . . or Barbershop Bang?

    Colorado Springs, Colo. — From the liberal media’s coverage of my beautiful adopted hometown, you’d think we live in a KKK-infested hotbed where every person of color fears for his or her life. Take a look at these ominous headlines: “Bombing of NAACP headquarters harkens to bad old days” — MSNBC “Colorado Springs explosion recalls violence against NAACP” — the Washington Post “NAACP Bombing Evokes Memories of Civil Rights Strife” — Time magazine “Explosion outside NAACP office could be a hate crime, officials say” — the Los Angeles Times Let me and my brown skin assure you, America: Bull Connor...

    Washington Post media reporter Erik Wemple called on CNN's Carol Costello to apologize to the Palin family in the same venue where she mocked audio of Bristol Palin reporting a physical assault: on-air. Although Costello herself called for an ESPN anchor to be suspended for comments he made about a assault on a woman (after he had apologized on-air), thus far Costello has only issued a short written apology through CNN.
  • Ben Bradlee, legendary Washington Post editor, dies at 93

    Benjamin C. Bradlee, who presided over The Washington Post newsroom for 26 years and guided The Post’s transformation into one of the world’s leading newspapers, died Oct. 21 at his home in Washington of natural causes. He was 93. From the moment he took over The Post newsroom in 1965, Mr. Bradlee sought to create an important newspaper that would go far beyond the traditional model of a metropolitan daily. He achieved that goal by combining compelling news stories based on aggressive reporting with engaging feature pieces of a kind previously associated with the best magazines. His charm and gift...
  • Washington Post Covers Voter Fraud Inaccurately and Incompletely

    Sometimes voter-fraud deniers are forced to discuss the truth of voter fraud. This happened today at the Washington Post (“Fairfax officials say some people may have crossed Va.-Md. line to vote twice in 2012“). While the Post deserves credit from emerging from its cocoon of voter-fraud denial, it deserves scorn for bungling the emergence. Reporter Susan Svrluga notes that “tens of thousands of voters” were registered to cast ballots in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s true, and it is a big problem nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of people are registered to vote in multiple states, and many of them have...
  • 'Washington Post' editorial board stops using Redskins name

    More and more we're hearing about various members of the media ceasing to use the name "Redskins." In perhaps the biggest deal yet, the Washington Post announced Friday the editorial board would cease using the team's nickname. "While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect," said a statement on the paper's own site. Worth noting: this doesn't affect the actual paper. The news-gathering side of the business can -- and will as we understand it...
