Democrats are always the victims and never the victimizers

Former California Rep. Katie Hill resigned after only 10 months on the job ... and it doesn't sound like she did it willingly. Hill admitted to having had an affair with a female campaign staffer but denied an alleged affair with her male congressional legislative director -- a violation of House ethics rules. RedState and the Daily Mail posted ...Read more

Twitter tilts 2020 with an ad ban

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has announced that his platform will no longer accept political advertising. He tweeted: "We've made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought."

Let's stipulate from the outset that Twitter should have that right to do so, as should...Read more

Jane Fonda's new socialist stunts aren't working

One of the strangest things about liberals is how they think getting arrested is some kind of achievement. Take Jane Fonda, who, at the tender age of 81, is still ranting about capitalist America ruining the world. Only this time, the issue is "climate change" instead of the Cold War.

"Hanoi Jane" infamously sat behind a communist antiaircraft ...Read more

Leftist's media's mission: shower this president with negativity

The successful U.S. military campaign to bring swift justice to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is clearly a big, big victory for America. Rather than surrender, the world's most wanted terrorist tugged on a suicide vest and blew himself to pieces. He made sure the blast killed three of his children, too.

The media coverage could easily be ...Read more

New movie includes chilling examples of how the left wants to censor speech they don't like

Freedom of speech is in the First Amendment for a reason. Freedom begins with the ability to speak your opinion without fear of censorship or violent reprisal or imprisonment. This is a precious human right, not something that most countries in the world revere like we have. But here in America, free speech is most dangerously under attack in ...Read more

CNN's alleged "sources" need to be called into question

CNN host Jim Sciutto was mocked for tweeting two months ago, "Let's please ban the word 'narrative' from our discussion of the news and this president. There is only one version of the facts and the truth. Full stop."

CNN is about the last place you should look for what Sciutto demands of the news media. Full stop.

Networks such as CNN insist ...Read more

There's no truth in the Washington Post's advertising

One of the most interesting parts of the CNN Democratic debate this week had nothing to do with the debates. It came during a commercial break. The Washington Post bought commercial time -- which isn't shocking, since the Democrats are the paper's natural subscriber base. It's how The Post promoted itself that was truly jaw-dropping.

The ad ...Read more

Reaction to impeachment underlines how much collusion there is between journalists and Democrats

The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page Sunday "news" article that somehow, President Trump was losing his marbles in rage, going "beyond his often-untethered bounds." Readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state after learning he held a raucous rally in Minneapolis and said supposedly crazy things ...Read more

The NBA grovels to China

The National Basketball Association found itself in the middle of a political firestorm of its own making when the Houston Rockets' general manager tweeted something simple and admirable: "Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong." The NBA's first statement was cowardly. It began: "We recognize that the views expressed by... Daryl Morey have ...Read more

Is it really news that so-called "news anchors" are anti-GOP?

Politico posted a curious headline by senior media reporter Michael Calderone the other day: "News anchors fight back against GOP senators' refusal to condemn Trump." At this point, is it really news that "news anchors" are fighting the GOP?

Calderone in this case refers to CNN's Jake Tapper and NBC's Chuck Todd. Let's address them separately. ...Read more

You cannot celebrate free speech except for that which you want to ban

Washington Post book critic Ron Charles made a confession the other day. "I banned a book," he wrote. "Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year. Like celebrating Arbor Day by cutting down a tree."

The book is titled "The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World -- Who Really Did It and ...Read more

Nobody should put up with the leftist media's duplicity

In the fall of 1998, House Republicans took special counsel Kenneth Starr's report on then-President Bill Clinton's impeachable conduct and launched an impeachment inquiry. The media elites roared in disgust. Then-NBC host Gwen Ifill quoted an unnamed (naturally) House Judiciary Committee member who compared the Starr report to a terrorist truck...Read more

Pelosi caves to celebrity leftists who hate democracy

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally announced she would support an impeachment process, she was bowing to left-wing extremists who have never accepted the 2016 election results.

And Tinseltown is positively giddy.

After the election, celebrity leftists made a video urging the Electoral College to reject the election results. That didn't ...Read more

While liberal media focuses on nonsense like vaping and global warming, abortion horrors are buried

The grotesque nature of abortion and the industry that profits from it is routinely hidden by the national press beneath a gauzy layer of rhetorical blather about "a woman's right to choose." It's drummed into the public daily: Abortion is a precious civil right and a sacrament of feminism, never a death, let alone a murder.

Look no further ...Read more

Even Gaia is running for the hills

Gaianism is alive and well in what we call Western civilization. In advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Sept. 23, leftists are actively practicing their faith. Man has despoiled the Earth and now must ... confess to the Earth.

Think we're exaggerating?

On Sept. 17, New York's Union Theological Seminary, a progressive ...Read more

Leftist agitators at the New York Times are beyond disgusting

On Sept. 15, The New York Times ran a long Sunday Review article by its reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly in which they promoted their new book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation."

The book could be titled "Bitter Tears for Leftists." You knew it was going to happen. Just as they cannot concede that Donald Trump won the ...Read more

Hollywood is never prouder than when conservatives call it infamous garbage

It's a fallacy to suggest that in the news media, business trumps politics. CNN's and MSNBC's dismal ratings are in direct proportion to their deliberate decision to embrace far-left anti-Trumpism.

The same holds true for commercialized Hollywood, except in this case, it's not just anti-Trumpism that excites. The hatred is deeper. Hollywood is ...Read more

Liberal spin at CBS makes it evident just how foolish they think we are

Think of the media's daily disgust at President Trump's patting himself on the back. Then watch something like "60 Minutes" and find CBS aerobically praising its own genius and celebrating the career of its retiring correspondent Steve Kroft in an hourlong episode on Sept. 8. Not only did Lesley Stahl toast Kroft for his allegedly fascinating ...Read more

A Hollywood Blacklist for Trump Backers?

For decades now, the Hollywood left has romanticized those brave Communist Party members who were blacklisted in the 1950s for refusing to cooperate with congressional investigations into their Soviet espionage. Just three years ago, Bryan Cranston was nominated for an Oscar for best actor for playing communist screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, a ...Read more

An Excusing Frenzy for Biden's Fact Mangling

The Washington Post caused an uproar inside the media when it reported that former Vice President Joe Biden told a "moving but false" war story at a campaign stop in Hanover, New Hampshire, on Aug. 23. He told 400 people he'd been asked to travel to the Kunar province in Afghanistan to recognize the heroism of a Navy captain but the captain ...Read more
