The meltdown not only continues, but appears to be increasing in intensity. At this point I don’t know if there’s enough Valium and diapers in the world for the hysterics at the Times. I hate to be the bearer of bad news for them, but we have a president who doesn’t care about their feelings nor does he need to be liked by them. That is at the core of the liberal establisment mass hysteria~~ we suddenly have a man in the White House they can’t bully and control. Thank God. Via Washington Examiner. The Los Angeles Times on Sunday launched a four-part editorial series that said Trump’s lack of respect for democratic institutions and his “utter lack of regard...

The mainstream media reported yesterday’s horrific terror attack in Jerusalem. Although, reading the headlines, one would think we need to ban… trucks. Via Daily Caller. When a Palestinian terrorist drove a truck into a crowd of Israeli soldiers Sunday morning the headlines from major media outlets pinned the blame squarely on the truck, avoiding headlining the story as a terrorist attack. “At Least 4 Dead and 15 Injured in Jerusalem Truck Attack,” declared the New York Times. The lede in the times read, “A truck plowed into a group of people as they were getting off a bus in Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon, killing at least four people and injuring about 15 others, the police said.”…. More trucks killing?! Ban...

Yahoo (inadvertently?) changed a letter of President-Elect Trump’s tweet, which then contained a racial slur. Ok, nice of them to apologize. But most headlines managed to be written so that it looks like it was Donald Trump who had initially added the racial slur, which then needed to be deleted. For example, here is the U.S. News & World Report headline to the story: Yahoo Deletes Offensive Tweet About Trump Plans Yahoo Finance says it accidentally tweeted out a racial epithet when promoting a story about the cost of President-elect Donald Trump’s plans to increase the size of the U.S. Navy. The headline for the story on Yahoo Finance is, “Trump Wants a Much Bigger Navy: Here’s How Much It’ll...

OK, someone was not thinking over at CNN. Although I’m not sure “thinking” is one of CNN’s strong points. But here is the real media outrage: Rep. Keith Ellison is angling to become head of the DNC. He is well-known as an Israel-basher, he has praised his friend Louis Farrakhan, and it is now reported that his 2008 trip to the Hajj in Saudi Arabia was funded by a Muslim Brotherhood-connected organization. But crickets from the MSM. Instead, non-stop coverage of Steve Bannon and the “racist, anti-Semitic, sexist, homophobic” Breitbart News. Via Philly.com A “furious” Jake Tapper blasted CNN and his own show, The Lead, for displaying a phrase on Monday night’s show that outraged many viewers who claimed on...

Nicely done by Tucker. Via Mediaite. Fox’s Tucker Carlson took a swipe at the NAACP during a segment tonight over potential next Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Carlson clashed with Roll Call columnist Jonathan Allen over his piece on why the Senate should reject Sessions. Carlson told Allen his column was a smear and “total hack job,” pressing him for examples of racism on Sessions’ part. Allen pointed to comments Sessions got in trouble for when he was up for a judgeship decades ago, his recent remarks on the Confederate flag, and how he once called the NAACP “un-American” because they were “trying to force civil rights down the throats of people.” Carlson responded, “I think the NAACP is a totally...

Just a coincidence, right? Via BizPac Review. Republican New York Rep. Chris Collins had his satellite feed cut Wednesday when he mentioned Hillary Clinton’s Wikileaks scandal on CNN. Appearing on “New Day” Collins was asked by host Chris Cuomo, who days ago erroneously claimed it was illegal for citizens to read the Wikileaks emails, about what Trump could do to come out on top” at the debate if the issue of character is mentioned. “Two thirds of the public know that Hillary Clinton’s a liar, she can’t be trusted and now the two faces of Hillary Clinton are coming out – the fact through Wikileaks she says one thing and….” Collins said before his feed was cut…. ****************************************************

The answer in a nutshell– No. Oh, he says they will conduct and “equivalent effort” on Hillary, but we are 180 days from the general election and if that was underway we would know. If the WaPo intended to have 20 reporters investigating Hillary and planned a book with their findings, they’d have to be doing it right now, along with the Trump investigation. I have no problem with the press looking into candidates. What I’m sick of is the fact that they only do it to the GOP. Bottom line: there may be a tiny story about Hillary but they have no intention of being fair and balanced as Woodward suggests. Far from it I surmise. I would also...

Tammy noted that although Sanders did better in NY than Obama in ’08, he is not really being given media scrutiny. Why not? Because, on the economy, “he’s a lunatic.” Furthermore, Hillary is not getting much attention because that would entail focusing on the FBI investigation. Tammy also noted Democrats are switching to vote Republican, because “we want a POTUS who’s not in prison. Colmes noted… well, the usual Lib talking points.

‘Bravo’ to the New York Times for hitting a new low, carrying the water for the Democrat Party. Via Right Scoop: The New York Times CROPS OUT George W. Bush from their SELMA front page picture …Of course there were more than 20 Republicans there, but the Democrats need to win an election, so the press will make sure to push their agenda items and narratives as much as possible.

In 1996, Seth and Sherri Mandell, of Silver Spring, Maryland, moved to Israel with their four children. Yaakov (Jacob), nicknamed ‘Koby,’ was their oldest. They settled in the town of Tekoa, on the West Bank. On May 8, 2001, Koby and his best friend, Yosef Ishran, skipped school, to explore the caves near the town. When they did not return home, their parents assumed that they had taken the bus, after school, to nearby Jerusalem, to participate in a political demonstration. But when the boys did not return by midnight, the authorities were contacted. Their bodies were discovered the next morning in one of the caves. They had been bludgeoned to death with large rocks. I will spare you the...

Without pay. Now that would affect people like us, but for a guy making $10M + a year, I don’t think he’ll notice. As I noted on the show, I’m not sure how they bring him back after this. Perhaps this is just about stopping the bleeding at this point. I can’t see him coming back, can you? And what about his replacement? Now Savannah Guthrie’s name is coming up. Ultimately, I don’t think anything can save NBC, or any of the legacy news outfits. For far too long they’ve handled the news like it’s theatre, and for the last 7 years it’s only been about protecting Obama and their other political cronies. We shall see. Via Fox News. Brian...

It seems Brian Williams and Hillary Clinton have something in common – mythomania. NBC News anchor Williams has admitted he was not aboard a helicopter hit by fire in Iraq in 2003. A story he repeated as recently as Friday night. Hillary Clinton made a similar claim in 2008 – coming under sniper fire in Bosnia as they landed – also untrue. What is wrong with these people? Brian Williams admits that his story of coming under fire while in Iraq was false NBC News anchor Brian Williams conceded on Wednesday that a story he had told about being under fire while covering the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was false. Williams said he was not aboard a helicopter that was...

Once upon a time, the New York Times was known as the “Paper of Record.” Now, it’s known as the newspaper best used as birdcage lining. Or for wrapping fish. Today’s NYT Editorial: Negativity Wins the Senate Republicans would like the country to believe that they took control of the Senate on Tuesday by advocating a strong, appealing agenda of job creation, tax reform and spending cuts. But, in reality, they did nothing of the sort. Even the voters who supported Republican candidates would have a hard time explaining what their choices are going to do. That’s because virtually every Republican candidate campaigned on only one thing: what they called the failure of President Obama. In speech after speech, ad...
