Going over Rush’s transcripts from yesterday’s show, Rush stated that the Mueller report does not exonerate Trump. Therefore, Rush and @fredcole are in agreement! In other news, the temperature in Hell is rapidly decreasing to 32 degrees Fahrenheit . . . Sort of. Rush says there is no evidence of collusion, obstruction, or any wrongdoing. […]

Post Me Too, we are seeing an attempt to derail Judge Kavanagh’s appointment based on completely uncorrobated accusations. Yet the establishment in both parties, which pretends to be subject to fainting spells over Trump’s behavior, has very different standards with respect to WJC. Obama had a difficult re-election campaign in 2012. He had Clinton give […]

Here’s the latest news on my iPhone’s lock screen. I can’t recall the MSM saying anything like Obama “made bold claims” or that reactions to his SOTU were “mixed,” can you? As usual, they’re not lying. But they ain’t telling it like it is either. More

Take a moment and imagine the outrage, the front-page headlines, the call for frog-marches, the Rush-Limbaugh-blaming, and the tears flowing in the streets, if a Democrat was physically attacked at their home by a registered Republican. Just imagine.

That’s exactly what happened to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Friday. How many of you have heard this story? I hadn’t; I saw it in my Twitter feed. To be fair, I didn’t watch any TV today, but as much as I have been on the internet, you would think it would be easily noticed, right? Not if it’s a Republican. Well, here is the story. This happened at about 3 in the afternoon on Friday — just a guy out mowing the lawn…

Looks like the Mainstream Media has decided not to go down with the SS Clinton Feculence.

Since the Clinton campaign of 1992, the general leftward tilt of the MSM morphed into open, full partnership with the Democratic Party. For a quarter of a century, every effort was made to downplay, spin, or defend the utterly sleazoid behavior of both Clintons.

Reporting on a 13-month-old story is always difficult, as most people have moved on in their lives. Sometimes I believe that is exactly why the Federal Government takes so long to process Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests, especially ones being requested from the Right side of the political spectrum.

So, let’s travel back to June of 2016. Hillary was in big trouble over emails and servers and whatnot, and it could potentially result in the end of her Presidential campaign if indictments were handed down by the Department of Justice. This all depended on what the FBI had to say about it, courtesy of a certain Director named James Comey.

Although a weaponized bureaucracy, academia, and pop culture are also in the running, with good reason most of us believe that media bias is the single biggest advantage the Left has over conservatism. Bush lied to get us into Iraq. Sarah Palin was a moron. Romney was a heartless vulture capitalist. The 2008 economic crisis was capitalism’s fault and had nothing to do with government overreach. Bush’s mistakes during Katrina show how racist he was and caused the deaths of thousands while Mayor Nagin’s and Governor Blanco’s ridiculous behavior isn’t even worth mentioning. The only Republicans who aren’t motivated by hate for the poor, gays, immigrants, women, minorities, and Mother Earth are backwards idiots who take the Bible too seriously. All of these beliefs and countless others have been adopted by large swaths of our population, and every one of them was advanced with the help of the mainstream media.

One can only imagine how different Washington would look today were the media merely fair. Of course, I’d love for CNN to have ferociously sought to destroy Lois Lerner instead of politically incorrect rodeo clowns, but had our esteemed Fourth Estate simply gone after Lois and the clown with equal fervor, we’d still be doing far better electorally. Note how much better we do in state and local elections where the national media has far less sway.

I was sucked in, like so many people. I believed that the White House was in chaos, because the media did a great job of creating that image for me, and it just made sense. Until one post when @mjbubba pointed out that I’d bought into the Left’s picture of Trump’s administration and the leader […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Fidel Castro: 60 Years of Fake News

 

castroA panic is sweeping the land – or at least something like it has unnerved CNN, Vox, and other precincts of progressive sensibility. They are alarmed that millions of Americans are being misled by “fake news.”

As someone whose inbox has lately bulged with items about Hillary Clinton’s impending demise due to a concealed, terminal illness; who has shaken her head at “breaking news” that Turkish coup plotters had gotten their hands on NATO nuclear weapons at Incirlik air base; and who has sighed at the endless iterations of stories like the “47 Clinton friends who mysteriously turned up dead,” I don’t deny that misinformation, disinformation, rumors, and malicious gossip appear to have achieved new salience in the national conversation. I shun right-leaning publications and sites that traffic in this sort of drivel.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. If Dems Will Rig a Debate for Clinton, What Won’t They Do to Win?

 

No matter what the election outcome next week, the media will be big losers. This campaign season has seen much of the media rip off their veneer of objectivity, too often acting instead as an unofficial campaign arm working to elect Hillary Clinton.

The latest revelation — that the town hall moderator overseeing a Democratic primary debate gave CNN contributor Donna Brazile a peek at expected questions, and Brazile then fed Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff a question expected to come up in the primary debate against Bernie Sanders — confirms the too cozy relationships between the politicians and the so-called journalists and officials who are supposed to be helping Americans get unbiased information about candidates.

Hopefully, I can get this done without triggering the Ricochet COC. Over the years, there have been things that were brought up by the MSM that just didn’t make sense… until a couple of days later. A couple of examples and then a question. More

But from inside the party. After listening to Rush Limbaugh and reading Conrad Black and Mark Steyn and Scott Adams about Trump and then watching Trump over the last few months I’m pretty sure that Trump has been planning this foray into politics for some time. I think he viewed the GOP leadership as a […]

BuzzFeed announced today that they will not accept or run any ads for the Trump campaign. The popular news and entertainment website terminated a $1.3 million deal with the Republican National Committee due to the presumptive GOP nominee’s rhetoric and campaign positions.
