  • Poll: Majority of Voters Say Democratic Party Stands for Nothing — Except Opposing Trump

    Today’s Democratic Party stands for only one thing — attacking President Donald Trump — a majority of registered voters said in a new Washington Post/ABC News poll. The poll, taken between July 10-13, asked:“Do you think the Democratic Party currently stands for something, or just stands against Trump?”While 54% of registered voters said the party stood for nothing except being “against Trump,” only 35% said the Democratic Party stood for “something,” and 11% had no opinion. Thus, 60.7% of those with an opinion said the party stood only for opposing Trump. …

    RUSH: There’s an ABC poll out. You will not believe… Well, you will when I tell you why this ABC poll is so damned distorted. You know what this polling stuff is doing? This misrepresentation… They take and put together a faulty sample that oversamples Democrats. This ABC/Washington Post poll that has Trump’s approval number plummeting? Do you know what the plus Democrat number is? It’s 12%! There was a plus-12% additional Democrats sampled in this poll. Well, hell’s bells! And if you look elsewhere, you find that barely 9% of Trump’s base is having some problems with him. He...
  • The Media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome

    The liberal media doesn’t like the President. For that matter some in the conservative media don’t like the President either…yes, that means our friends at National Review and The Weekly Standard and doubtless a few others. There’s plenty of room for honest disagreement. But it is all too obvious that the Trump candidacy and now the Trump presidency has produced what can only be called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) among Trump critics both in and out of the media. As noted here previously Time magazine devoted its “Person of the Year” cover in 2008 and 2016 to the new presidents-elect....

    MRC's Dan Gainor noticed a fascinating story in Friday's paper on America's historically low birth rate that utterly avoided one obvious factor in population decline: Abortion. Ariana Eunjung Cha's online report was titled "The U.S. fertility rate just hit a historic low. Why some demographers are freaking out." It began: The United States is in the midst of what some worry is a baby crisis. The number of women giving birth has been declining for years and just hit a historic low. If the trend continues — and experts disagree on whether it will — the country could face economic...

    The Washington Post is reporting that the CIA informed Obama in August 2016 that Putin was directly involved in a cyberop to tilt the U.S. presidential election. //Snipp// By June 23 said the CIA had evidence of “specific instructions” by Putin, ordering an operation to damage Hillary and to assure free pepperoni on all pizza items for, Donald Trump. At the time, it was widely known by U.S. intel that Russian intel had enjoyed free and open access into the joint Clinton Foundation / Democrat ic Party computer system for more than a year. //Snipp// But the August 2016 (a)...

    The liberal Washington Post underlined its reputation as a liberal rag on Tuesday by burying the immigration status of a man who killed a Muslim teenager in suburban northern Virginia. They wear "Democracy Dies in Darkness" T-shirts and then put anything in the "darkness" that's inconvenient to their liberal agenda.  The front-page headline was "Police in Va. probe road rage in girl's killing. There was a picture of the victim in her hijab. The alleged assailant appeared in the third paragraph of a story by Justin Jouvenal and Julie Zauzmer:  The driver, Darwin Martinez Torres, a 22-year-old construction worker from...
  • Washington Post Agrees With Clinton: She Lost Because She's a Woman

    In Monday’s Washington Post, the media’s pathetic attempt to blame everyone but Hillary Clinton for her election loss trudged on. Today’s paper highlighted a study by two professors at the University of Texas at Dallas, that surveyed what voters felt about women in the workplace, and whether or not their answers fit into a “traditionalist” or “progressive” mindset. The survey’s writers concluded that their six question survey found that Clinton was correct: “Negative attitudes toward women affects voters in 2016, and the impact of these attitudes influenced the outcome of the election.” The study’s writers, professors Harold Clarke and Marianne Stewart, found...

    For some perverse reason, I've always found it easier to write with the sound of talking in the background. If there's nobody around, I put on a podcast or an episode of some cable TV series. The other day I put on All the President's Men. I've probably seen it half a dozen times, beginning with its original release in 1976. The movie, directed by Alan J. Pakula from a script by William Goldman -- based, of course, on the book by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein about how they brought down President Nixon -- is a brilliant piece of...

    A pro-immigration advocate says the hard-hit mostly white working-class communities in the United States must be wheeled into “political hospice care,” and a Washington Post columnist commended his solution “as a way forward.” “Economic dislocation and demographic changes are fueling discomfort and desperation among white working-class voters,” wrote WashPo columnist and editorial board member Jonathan Capehart, continuing: While [university professor and author] Justin Gest says that both Republicans and Democrats have exploited these voters, he sees a way forward. “The only way of addressing their plight is a form of political hospice care,” [Gest] said. “These are communities that are on the...

    Washington Post reporter Cleve Wootson was recently given the responsibility of reporting on a lawsuit in which I am involved. The story he was assigned to write is actually quite simple. A California university unconstitutionally denied a student group’s request for funding to host a conservative speaker (me) on their campus. The decision to deny funding was a blatant case of viewpoint discrimination that is supported by a mountain of evidence. Thus, Wootson had an easy story to write if he simply stuck to the facts. Instead, his article wound up being a masterpiece of bad journalism.Wootson begins his article...

    So, we had two stories yesterday that related to the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, or any other issues that may come from this inquiry. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been appointed as special counsel to the DOJ’s investigation, giving him a wide mandate to look into this case. The New York Times article noted that President Trump told the Russians that the pressure had been eased due to James’ Comey’s firing from the FBI. This was said in a meeting the day after he fired Mr. Comey—May...

    RUSH: CNN and the Washington Post with fake news. There’s a news story that Comey requested additional money for his investigation just days before he was fired. The Department of Justice has just denied it 100%. There was no request for additional money before he was fired. CNN and the Washington Post get this fake news trail going that Comey was getting close, man! He needed some more money. He needed some more money to nail Trump! And that’s when Trump moved in and said, “Screw you! You’re not getting the money. You’re not getting me.” The DOJ says it’s...

    When George Will and other leading intellectuals started to rip holes in their warm comfort couches in despair at Donald Trump's long series of victories, culminating in his election to the presidency, a lot of us were scratching our heads. What was it about winning that drove George Will, Jonah Goldberg, and Bill Kristol to despair? It made no sense. Their Conservative Cringe makes even less sense today, when Trump is carrying out a series of actions that we have long clamored for. Well, Mr. Will has finally identified his complaint in a WaPo opinion piece dramatically called "Trump Has...

    RUSH: You know, the more you get into this, the worse it actually is. Listen to this. This is from the Washington Post story with the headline: “Eight Ways Trump Got Rolled in His First Budget .” This, in the Washington Post, is their number one roll, and it’s understandable. The only thing that didn’t get any money in this budget is Trump’s wall. Everything else — including everything Trump opposes — got a budget increase. Try this: “There are explicit restrictions to block the border wall. “We knew last week there would be no money to start construction on...
  • Amid immigration setbacks, one Trump strategy seems to be working: Fear

    Washington Post ^ | April 30, 2017
    In many ways, President Trump’s attempts to implement his hard-line immigration policies have not gone very well in his first three months. His travel ban aimed at some Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by the courts, his U.S.-Mexico border wall has gone nowhere in Congress, and he has retreated, at least for now, on his vow to target illegal immigrants brought here as children. But one strategy that seems to be working well is fear. The number of migrants, legal and illegal, crossing into the United States has dropped markedly since Trump took office, while recent declines in the number...
  • WaPo: This Democratic Purity Experiment Is Quite A Mess, Huh?

    Time will tell if the Democratic PartyÂ’s charted course to progressive purity will be successful. Right now, Democrat Jon Ossoff is facing Republican Karen Handel in GeorgiaÂ’s sixth congressional district runoff, which will be held in June. In Montana, Rob Quist is also trying to win over voters through heavy usage of firearms in his ads. The question Aaron Blake of The Washington Post asks is 'why did the Republican Party have such success with the Tea Party wave of 2010, knocking off members of Congress that conservatives felt were too moderate, while Democrats seem to be foundering.' If anything,...

    President Trump took a few more shots Monday at his old nemesis — the pollsters who confidently predicted his loss last year — after new surveys were released playing up the president’s low approval ratings at the end of his first 100 days. But the same polling also buried some more positive news for the president: he’d still beat Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head matchup, according to one survey. The Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that 43 percent said they would support Trump if the election were held today, compared with 40 percent for the former Democratic nominee, Clinton. Trump...
  • WashPost Poll Story Hides Ugly Truth: Trump Still Beats Clinton, 43 Percent to 40

    Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner had the eagle eye in his take on Sunday’s Washington Post. The headline at the top of the front page was “Trump polls at record lows” and the subheadline (all caps) was “LEAST POPULAR PRESIDENT IN MODERN TIMES.” That’s a little inaccurate, leaves out “at the 100 days mark.” But the Post dramatically submerged a comparison of just how unpopular Trump was: He still beats Hillary Clinton in a 2017 matchup. That didn't emerge until the second-to-last paragraph of a long story that traveled to page A-14. The headline on that page was "Among...
  • CNN's Don Lemon Loses It: Won't 'Aid And Abet' Trump's Surveillance Claim

    The wagon-circling campaign to protect Obama administration and intelligence community officials who surveilled Donald Trump and his transition team during his presidential campaign and post-victory transition is moving into hyperdrive. On Monday, CNN's Don Lemon proclaimed that "there is no evidence whatsoever" supporting Donald Trump's claim about having been "spied on illegally" (note the inclusion of the word "illegally," which is crucial), and declared that he would not "aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you." Lemon's stridency as he delivered his rant on CNN Tonight appeared to betray "he protests too much" behavior, while subsequent events...
