What’s fascinating to me is what is sacred and what is disgusting are often related. If there is no G-d, then taking the Lord’s name in vain isn’t a big deal for example. If patriotism is bad than burning the American flag doesn’t matter. However, if we find concept or some activity sacred, than we […]

Dan Rather Medals for News and Guts

 

I see that the University of Texas has inaugurated a journalism award named after Dan Rather. For those too young to remember, Dan Rather is infamous for attempting — unsuccessfully — to sway the 2004 Presidential race in favor of Democratic candidate John Kerry by launching a smear attack against Republican candidate President George W. Bush based on an obviously fraudulent document allegedly produced in the 1970s but in fact created using Microsoft Word.

In a similar spirit, I’d like to suggest a few more honors the learned folk at UT might like to bestow.

Just once, when one of the ‘journalists’ like Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd or Chris Wallace demands from someone like Sidney Powell why they aren’t giving them the detailed evidence they want, I would like to hear the response: “Well, Jake/Chuck/Chris – you are the supposed journalist.  What evidence is there that you are looking for […]

I mean this post to be a continuation of @LoisLane‘s excellent discussion recently about why Joe Biden seems to receive fewer demerits for behavior that is facial similar to, or worse than, that of the president.  I think this morning’s court-packing news casts that conversation in a new light.  Preview Open

I glanced at the headline and did a double-take: School district in Marin County agrees to desegregate in settlement with state Had I entered a time warp?  Was this an old story dug out of the archives from the 1950’s?  But no, it was listed as breaking news, so my next thought was that surely […]

The Upside of the Leftist Turmoil: We’re Pushing Back

 

We already know how horribly the Left has behaved; their actions have become increasingly abhorrent over time. Their immorality is laid out for everyone to see. Their hypocrisy on the values they supposedly espouse—tolerance, fairness, non-judgment, support of women, justice—can no longer be ignored by the Right or denied by the Left (although I’m sure they will try).

The benefits of the recent chaos, though, should not be ignored, since they have played their cards. And we must find ways to minimize their impact or stop them in their tracks. The viciousness of their attacks on the Constitution, the Congress (senators and representatives) and their families must be addressed. Here are examples of their outrageous behavior:

  • Leaking information to defame
  • Harassing people and their families in public places
  • Staking out the homes of people
  • Lying to add more fuel to the fire
  • Making demands that should be discounted and ignored
  • Manipulating procedures and the law to meet their agenda

These are only examples; the complete list is a longer one.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America return with three crazy martinis.  First, they shake their heads as President Trump tweets that those who died for our country would be really proud of his economic record.  They also roll their eyes as liberal politicians and media figures express outrage over images of illegal immigrant children being confined to cages – until they learn the images are from 2014 during the Obama administration  and then delete their tweets.  And they react to California scrambling to find records for tens of thousands of voters who were mistakenly enrolled twice, all of this just a week before primary day in the state.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the family leave plan pushed by Sen. Marco Rubio and Ivanka Trump to allow parents to tap their future Social Security checks to cover the weeks surrounding the birth of a new baby in exchange for waiting extra weeks when they reach retirement.  In addition, Alexandra rebuts the liberal insistence that family leave must be a whole new entitlement.  They also slam Republicans for effectively surrendering the option to use budget reconciliation for the next two years as part of the horrific budget deal with Democrats.  And they fire back at Republican lawmakers who spent Thursday trashing Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster as a waste of time, when those GOP members are really just mad that Sen. Paul called them out for their blatant hypocrisy on deficit spending and not wanting to take a vote on restoring budget caps.

Does Hillary Clinton Respect the Faith of Catholic and Evangelical Americans? MADISON, WI — The latest Wikileaks emails to go public reveal a series of communications involving Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta and the campaign’s Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri in which Catholics are described as “severely backwards” and guilty of the “bastardization” of […]

Since the MFM are giving Donald Trump grief for his assertion that Barack Obama founded ISIS, I thought it might be a fun exercise to go through a few things Democrats have posited over the years: George W. Bush sent Hurricane Katrina to kill black people. George W. Bush was responsible for the terror attacks […]

Hillary Clinton proudly calls herself a committed, old-fashioned Methodist. So says Paul Kengor, a man who wrote a book on the faith of Mrs. Clinton titled God and Hillary Clinton: A Spiritual Life. But, as Dr. Kengor tells us, Hillary now has a church problem. One of the reasons Herself felt so “comfortable” in the Methodist […]

The Democrats seem to have realized that the violence they have been inciting may not be to their political advantage. “We saw in San Jose these protesters starting to pelt stuff and Trump supporters,” Mr. Obama said at a fundraiser near Biscayne Bay, Florida. “That’s not what our democracy is about. That’s not what you […]

Sooo… The news media screams that it’s just terrible that people are able to “evade” taxes by stashing money offshore, and why the heck isn’t the government doing something about it? Oh, but no, we’re not gonna give law enforcement any of the actual information they need to do something about it, because journalism? Media didn’t have any problems revealing […]

I can no longer stand the hypocrisy of our political discourse. It’s just too much for me; my blood pressure can no longer handle this issue. The entire conservative movement is maligned because some idiot racist endorses Donald Trump. The KKK an organization that exists in this country exclusively because of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, Democrat […]

If you support the Conservative-lite approach of winning elections through innocuous center-friendly candidates until we somehow gain an unstoppable majority (which nobody will see coming for twenty years) and then springing a bunch of unstoppable conservative changes upon a helpless country (that is the plan, isn’t it?), you are engaging in a cynical and dishonest […]
