    Expressing sympathy for the alleged victim and frustration with how her case was handled, Gov. Phil Murphy ordered an investigation Monday into how his team responded to allegations a senior staffer raped a woman while he worked for the governor's campaign last year. An independent investigation will look into why former campaign staffer Albert J. Alvarez was hired to a top state job despite the sexual assault allegation, the governor said. "I wish we hadn't made the hire in transition, period," Murphy said during a 33-minute press conference in Newark. "I'm sick to my stomach once I heard what happened."...
  • Chris Matthews' Reaction to Kanye West Exposes the Left's Race-Card Hustle

    As is often the case in this era of President Donald Trump, the reaction is far more interesting than the action. The action was rapper/entrepreneur, ex-George W. Bush denouncer and Trump supporter Kanye West, whom Trump invited to the White House. The reaction from left-wing black critics was predictable. But the reaction from a notable Trump-hating white pundit was unintentionally eye-opening. In the Oval Office, West spoke nonstop, and apparently unscripted, for nearly 10 minutes. During his monologue and subsequent questions by reporters, West talked about the pressure blacks face to vote Democratic; how conservative blacks are often bullied by...

    Whenever Donald Trump talks about fake news, there are howls of indignation from the establishment media. We're told that the very mention of "fake news" is a direct attack on our democracy, that the alternative is "darkness," that it led to the dismemberment and murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and that, yes, every once in a while there might be a typo, but if you mean the media intentionally report false information, that is dangerous demagoguery. I present CNN's Ana Cabrera. On Sunday night, Cabrera launched a premeditated, vicious, racist lie about President Trump, then proceeded to discuss the false story...

The feud began with Sexton quote tweeting CNN on Warren, saying, ďItís a good thing CNN wasnt blatantly complicit in the massive, unforced error Warren pulled yesterday. That wouldíve been really embarrassing. Oh, wait a minute.Ē

    This week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in preparation for a 2020 presidential run, decided to fight back against President Trump's brutal nickname for her: Pocahontas. Trump, you'll recall, labeled her Pocahontas because for years, she has claimed Native American ancestry. Not only that, she claimed repeatedly that her mother's Native American ancestry drove her parents to elope after her father's family refused to welcome her mother with open arms thanks to their bigotry. As it turns out, Warren could never provide any evidence of Native American ancestry -- even though she spent years labeling herself Native American while at the...

    This past fall The New York Times began publishing a powerful, ongoing series revealing the U.S. military’s mistreatment of soldiers who were exposed to decades-old chemical weapons during Operation Iraqi Freedom. According to The Times, between 2004 and 2011 U.S. troops stumbled across about 5,000 Iraqi chemical munitions of various types, and at least 17 American personnel, mostly bomb disposal experts, were wounded by them. All of the ordnance was manufactured by Iraq prior to the 1991 Gulf War, during the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s.Much of the conservative media has seized on the Times articles as long-awaited, sweet vindication...

    The new movie about Kermit Gosnell, the notorious Philadelphia late-term abortionist eventually convicted in the deaths of three infants, made it into the Top 10 films at the box office this past weekend--an impressive feat for a crowd-funded film. But you wonít hear the mainstream media talking about it. ďWe were [No. 10] on Friday and Saturday, but slipped back to 12 on Sunday,Ē Phelim McAleer, who co-produced the film with his wife, Ann McElhinney, told The Daily Signal. ďWe are the No. 1 independent movie of the weekend and [No. 5] per screen average across the U.S.Ē ďThis has...

    The disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sparked controversy and the spread of media rumors across the world, including the doubtful information from Turkish sources and wrongful accusations against the Saudi General Consulís son in Istanbul.According to US media expert Patrick Poole, American media has been just as involved in reporting leaks from multiple unreliable sources.Poole noted that Yahoo News published an article Friday quoting Khaled Saffuri, one of Khashoggiís associates, that said President Trump's criticism of journalists may have inspired the Crown Prince to have Khashoggi "murdered."The Daily Beast also quoted Saffuri discussing Khashoggiís efforts to gain freedom...

    Sheís the Richard Blumenthal of intersectionality, minus the apology. Do you want to know what media bias looks like? Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as vindicating her. Down is up. Black is white. The imperatives of the resistance apparently dictate propping up a liar ó as long as she might be able to beat President Trump in 2020. Here are the facts. For an extended period of...

    Germany's leading right-of-center daily Die Welt this morning reveals that Jamal Khashoggi was not a journalist, but a high-level operative for the Saudi intelligence service, an intimate of Osama bin Laden, and the nephew of the shadiest of all Arab arms dealers, the infamous Adnan Khashoggi. John Bradley reported last week in the Spectator that Khashoggi, who allegedly met a grisly end in a Saudi consulate in Istanbul, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist organization that among other things wants to replace the Saudi monarchy with a modern Islamist totalitarian state. So much for the whining in...

A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath Ö and for what? If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNNís ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN...

Westís hat touts President Donald Trumpís campaign slogan, ďMake America Great Again.Ē Sanders posed with the rapper for the photo after his wild appearance in the Oval Office Thursday with Trump. The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint Friday with the Office of Special Counsel, accusing Sanders of violating the Hatch Act.
