  • De Blasio lets security haul away Post reporter for asking question

    NY Post ^ | August 12, 2018 | Kevin Sheehan and Bruce Golding
    Mayor de Blasio is a such a big believer in the free press that he let two bodyguards physically remove a credentialed Post reporter who had the temerity to ask him a question in public on Sunday. The unusual muzzling unfolded at the start of the annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, where the reporter sought de Blasio’s reaction to The Post’s front page story about his administration’s many meetings with lobbyists.
  • De Blasio slams Murdoch, Fox News: 'We would be a more unified country' without them

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) is slamming conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Fox News, saying that “we would be a more unified country" without their influence. “If you could remove News Corp from the last 25 years of American history, we would be in an entirely different place," de Blasio told The Guardian last week before he spoke at an event in New Orleans, adding that he believes Murdoch is responsible for President Trump's election in 2016. De Blasio said if it weren't for Murdoch and Fox News, "we would not be suffering a lot of...
  • Rachel Maddow Uses Non-Existent ‘House Popular Vote’ To Try To Prove There Really Was A Blue Wave

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 16, 2018 | Virginia Kruta
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow referenced the “House popular vote” in an effort to explain how the Nov. 6th midterm elections really did represent the “blue wave” many Democrats had been hoping to create. “As of this morning, the Democratic lead in the US House popular vote is up to 7.3%, from 7.2% yesterday. For comparison purposes, note that in 2010 – which was widely seen as a GOP ‘wave’ cycle – Republicans won the US House popular vote by 6.6%,” Maddow tweeted. (TWEET-AT-LINK)What Maddow was saying was that overall, more nationwide votes were cast for Democrats in House seats than for...

    FULL TITLE: Trump slanders (Muslim Brotherhood member and terror apologist) Khashoggi and betrays American values PRESIDENT TRUMP on Tuesday confirmed what his administration has been signaling all along: It will stand behind Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman even if he ordered the brutal murder and dismemberment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In a crude statement punctuated with exclamation points, Mr. Trump sidestepped a CIA finding that the crown prince was behind the killing; casually slandered Mr. Khashoggi, who was one of the Arab world’s most distinguished journalists; and repeated gross falsehoods and exaggerations about the benefits of the U.S. alliance...

    When the NY Times, Washington Post, CNN and other fact-challenged news outlets reported a few months ago that the oceans were warming at a catastrophic rate due to climate change, they all missed a glaring math error in the original science paper. The paper, co-authored by Ralph Keeling of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was published in the science journal Nature. It erroneously claimed that ocean temperatures were skyrocketing at a rate that was 60 percent higher than the IPCC’s known rate of ocean temperature trends. But the paper suffered from a glaring mathematical error that has since been exposed....

    Toxic ideologies often start around family dinner tables. It's not just an uncle saying a racist joke, or a grandmother determining her xenophobic ideas as “a part of her time.” These comments seep into how we make decisions in voting booths, how judges rule in their chambers, how teachers guide students in school classrooms, how employment decisions are made, and how police react in high-stakes situations. After a year of relentless atrocities that don’t always make for easy conversation at the dinner table, it's important to make Thanksgiving preparations beyond the tablescape and the menu. This year, I want you...

    Casey Research ^ | 21NOV18 | Doug Casey
    Hundreds of migrants have showed up at the U.S.-Mexico border. They’re part of a “caravan” that includes about 5,000 people from Central America. The rest of the caravan, as far as we know, is still in central Mexico. But make no mistake. They’ll show up at the border any day now. And no one can agree on what to do with these people. Some say we should just let them into America. Other people, including President Trump, think we should keep the migrants out. In fact, Trump recently called the caravan an “invasion.” Not only that, he deployed thousands of...

    During Monday’s Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham and her panel discussed CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers’s characterization of white women who voted for President Trump as racists who benefit from the patriarchy. Ingraham opened the segment by playing a clip of Powers from three years ago, back when she was a Fox News contributor and promoting her book, The Silencing: How The Left is Killing Free Speech. According to Powers in 2015: “It’s one thing just to be intolerant and have your own views and just say...I’m not interested in what other people think and I’m not going to talk...

    Children across the country are dying from what the mainstream media is describing as a “polio-like” illness, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is doing everything in its power to cover it all up and pretend like nothing is happening. At least two parents who have lost children to so-called acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), as it’s also called, say that the CDC is acting as though all is well, even as children are becoming paralyzed and losing their lives to the deadly disease. “I feel like they’re just sugar-coating this,” stated Katie Bustamante, whose six-year-old son...

    Tuesday’s midterm House elections saw Democrats fare much better than they did in the 2016 presidential contest. Two years ago, Hillary Clinton topped Donald Trump by 4.6 percent in the popular vote, while this week, Democratic House candidates received 9 percent more votes than their Republican counterparts.

    The White House is dropping its effort to strip CNN reporter Jim Acosta of his press credentials, a defeat for President Trump in his campaign against the news media. The reversal comes after the White House notified Acosta last Friday it may renew its attempts to revoke his press pass after a judge's order restoring it expired. The White House set a Sunday deadline for Acosta to object and said it would make a final decision by 3 p.m. on Monday. "Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final...

    The mainstream media has done nothing but try to derail Donald Trump's presidency before he even stepped into the White House. It happened before the 2016 election took place and it still occurs to this day. Remember how mainstream media outlets made Hillary Clinton's email scandal seem like no big deal? It was "no biggie" that she was sharing classified information. On a private server. In New York. With a public email address. Remember? Now the geniuses at The Washington Post have a bogus story about Ivanka Trump using a private email address to coordinate her family's schedule with...

    From an office suite on the 26th floor of the iconic Frost Bank Tower in Austin, Texas, a little-known recruiting firm called Crossover is searching the globe for software engineers. Crossover is looking for anyone who can commit to a 40- or 50-hour workweek, but it has no interest in full-time employees. It wants contract workers who are willing to toil from their homes or even in local cafes. “The best people in the world aren’t in your Zip code,” says Andy Tryba, chief executive of Crossover, in a promotional YouTube video. Which, Tryba emphasizes, also means you don’t have...

    The owners quietly refused to celebrate same-sex weddingsIn a dramatic demonstration of the power of the LGBTQI lobby, an Australian wedding magazine is closing down because its editors refuse to feature same-sex weddings. White, a glossy magazine published quarterly for 12 years by husband and wife team Luke and Carla Burrell, has been haemorrhaging advertisers since LGBTQI activists launched a campaign on social media to destroy it. White’s circulation had reached 32,000 copies and it was circulated in 17 countries. In addition to the Burrells it had one full-time employee. It depended on a network of photographers for content and...

    Representative-elect Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is proving to be a force to be reckoned with in Washington. Not only does he have stellar comedic timing, as we saw on "Saturday Night Live," but he can calmly defend the conservative agenda even when faced by a panel of liberal opponents. Crenshaw showed off his impressive debate skills on this weekend's "Face the Nation." His fellow panelists repeated the talking point that President Trump is undermining democracy with his attacks on the media, particularly CNN. For the second time in two weeks, the White House is revoking Jim Acosta's hard pass, noting his...

    Ellen Pompeo took a stand in an on camera interview for Net-A-Porter, calling out the publication during an actress roundtable interview. The “Grey’s Anatomy” star appeared in the video interview opposite Gina Rodriguez, Gabrielle Union, and Emma Roberts. When the conversation turned to representation in front of and behind the camera, Pompeo took a moment to address the elephant in the room and advocate for more inclusive sets of all shapes and sizes. “This day has been incredible, and there’s a ton of women in the room. But I don’t see enough color,” Pompeo said about the Net-A-Porter set. “I...
