In 2011, after a lunatic in Tucson, Arizona shot Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, wounded almost 20 more, and killed six, including a 9-year old girl, it took the liberal media elite a nanosecond to pin the crime on — who else? — conservative Republicans and their supposed “toxic rhetoric.” While… CONTINUE
When Senator Barack Obama launched his bid to run for president in 2007, one of the central issues where he criticized President George W. Bush was over his use of executive orders during his administration. It’s a process Senator Obama spoke out against on the campaign trail: “I take the Constitution very seriously, the biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with | Read More »

Yesterday afternoon, The Guardian’s Ben Jacobs grabbed immediate Internet and media attention when he tweeted, “Greg Gianforte just body slammed me and broke my glasses”. Gianforte is a Republican House candidate in today’s special election in Montana, a race that has drawn a lot of media coverage. Other reports quickly… CONTINUE
Yesterday, the Washington Post (and subsequently other major news organizations) reported that President Trump, in the Oval Office last week, shared classified intelligence information with officials from the Russian government. This information, which was provided to the U.S. by an intelligence partner, was in regard to the ISIS terrorist organization. It… CONTINUE
Since the election, “This is why Trump won” has been popular social-media response to the self-righteous liberals who continue to scold those who don’t subscribe to their politically-correct social justice orthodoxy. Many on the Right (including those who aren’t Trump fans) have enjoyed taunting the Left’s incessant demagoguery, because while the frequency… CONTINUE
President Trump received a fair amount of ridicule back in February, when he publicly complained that he “inherited a mess” from the previous administration. Because the rhetoric mirrored statements made by President Obama eight years earlier (in regard to Bush and the economic collapse), critics were quick to point out… CONTINUE
What Media Bias? CNN’s Jake Tapper was interviewed at SXSW by Ann Marie Cox. Tapper told the audience that his son now uses “Fake News” against him when the younger Tapper has had enough of his father. The Hollywood Reporter covered the story. While the anecdote by the CNN host was cute, it wasn’t the line that caught my eye. The real headline for me | Read More »

It’s not because Trump has trashed Bush’s policies (as Obama did), or because he excoriated Jeb Bush during the Republican primary. That’s comparatively mild stuff. A bold line was crossed, however, when… CONTINUE
The Paper of Record has done it again! Combining its stellar record of journalism with its down-the-middle analysis of current events, they have decided to re-write a bit of history and brand two ardent Trump opponents as… Trump supporters. No, really. Paper of record NYT identifies two prominent #NeverTrumpers (@JayCostTWS and @baseballcrank) as Trump “supporters” https://t.co/MNNfh7XN1i pic.twitter.com/WtFJBbiiJt — Mollie (@MZHemingway) January 30, 2017 Now, you | Read More »
Talk about a revelation. NBC’s Chuck Todd confessed to some pretty serious crimes in the world of journalism. In an interview with Ari Fleischer, the host of “Meet the Press” attempts to explain away the media being caught flat footed on their coverage of the presidential election. As Todd fumbles through his reasoning, I find myself confused. In one sentence he says that the media | Read More »
