No word, though, if these same Democrats oppose the free speech rights of Antifa thugs or BLM demonstrators calling for cop killings. Via Breitbart. A new poll conducted by the University of California Berkeley reveals that a majority of California Democrats oppose the First Amendment right of freedom of speech and assembly, at least as it applies to extreme right-wing groups. A plurality (46%) of all Californians feels the same way…. Some 50 percent of California Republicans, meanwhile, believe the right to demonstrate should not be restricted, compared with 39 percent of Democrats…. The poll’s results reportedly surprised the pollster who conducted it. “I would have thought the liberals would be defending the right to demonstrate in general,” Mark DiCamillo...

A “trivial detail.” But if the story was about a “Republican” senator, the word Republican would be in the headline…with “Conservative” thrown in too. And probably in every sentence of the article. Via Daily Caller. The New York Times published an almost 1300-word news story in Tuesday’s paper about Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez’s corruption trial, without ever mentioning Menendez’s party affiliation. Both in print and on social media, the NYT failed to inform its readers that Sen. Menendez is a Democrat…. The paper referred to him as ” The senator,” “Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey,” and “Mr. Menendez, a senior senator,” before referring to him as “Mr. Menendez” or “the senator” for the rest of the story....

Apparently, Chelsea doesn’t believe in using quotation marks. She also doesn’t seem to think she should ever keep her mouth shut. Her father pardoned billionaire Dem mega-donor and fugitive Marc Rich, who was indicted on charges of tax evasion, wire fraud, racketeering, and making controversial oil deals with Iran during the Iran hostage crisis. Her father also pardoned sixteen members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican terrorist group who set off bombs in NYC, causing death and destruction. So, she should really be sitting this one out. Via Breitbart. Chelsea Clinton tweeted an article penned by someone who spent a year in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Maricopa County “tent jail” Saturday but made it seem like she spent time there...

Eric Holder really walked right into this one: Via Washington Times. Former Attorney General Eric Holder’s foray into a debate on Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, quickly elicited reminders of his early stance on convicted Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan. It wasn’t long after a white supremacist gathering Saturday turned deadly with the killing of Heather Heyer, 32, that former President Obama’s top cop pronounced the ordeal “domestic terrorism.” Mr. Holder’s assessment of 20-year-old suspect James Alex Fields — who careened his vehicle into a crowd of protesters — prompted backlash by those familiar with the Justice Department’s handling of the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood massacre, which killed 13…. If ISIS rammed a car into a crowd this would...

Ok, kids, these are the rules: When a Democrat does something wrong, it’s not worth mentioning. When a Republican does the same thing, it’s 24-hour news coverage. Capiche? Via PowerLine. ….This is from the New York Post’s account of the incident: Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean. The tussle left Franken’s trademark thick-rim glasses broken, but he said he was not injured. Franken – who seemed in a state of shock and out of breath after the incident – was helped back to his feet by several people who watched the tussle. Police arrived soon after. “I got down low and took his legs out,”...

Ah, the give and take of international relations. Saudi Arabia and the UAE pledged to donate a combined $100 million to a World Bank fund for women which was set up at the urging of Ivanka Trump. In reporting this story the media hadddd to bring up that Donald Trump criticized Hillary for the Clinton Foundation accepting money from the same sources. Trump called on Hillary to return the money. Trump is a hypocrite and/or Hillary was unfairly criticized is what we are supposed to think. Saudis And The UAE Will Donate $100 Million To A Fund Inspired By Ivanka Trump The donation raised some eyebrows, since candidate Trump regularly excoriated the Clinton Foundation for accepting donations from repressive Middle...

When President Hopey-Changey did it, they called it “enhanced information sharing.” But when President Trump speaks to the Russians, Dems call it “impeachable offense” ? Got it. Via WaPo. The Obama administration has offered to help Russia improve its targeting of terrorist groups in Syria if Moscow will stop bombing civilians and opposition fighters who have signed on to a cease-fire and use its influence to force Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to do the same…. Senior administration officials declined to discuss details of the proposal, saying that publicizing the content of diplomatic talks would undermine their possible success. “We’ve made no bones about the fact that if the Russians, with their military presence in Syria, proved to be willing to...

Remember when the Legacy Media clutched their pearls over Matthews’ Hitler comment in 2013? Yeah, me neither… Via Daily Caller. Sean Spicer has spent the past two days apologizing for saying that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons. Unfortunately for MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, that led to people remembering he’d said said the exact same thing back in 2013…. To Matthews’ credit, he defended Sean Spicer after his Tuesday gaffe, explaining that the White House press secretary clearly “was talking about” the fact that Hitler “didn’t resort to [chemical weapons] in the battlefield.”

Kudos to Senator Cruz for this epic tweet. With all the liberals now clutching their pearls over the Trump administration’s supposed “treason,” does anyone recall even one peep from the MSM after the infamous Obama-Medvedev hot mic incident? HT Twitchy. Breaking: ABC releases video of POTUS promising "more flexibility" w/ Russia after election. Media outraged: https://t.co/KF0Bw7qSgt — Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) February 15, 2017

If there was any doubt about the jackassery in the White House and DOJ we’ve been saddled with this makes it clear. Via Washington Examiner. Just when you thought the lawlessness of the most lawless administration in history couldn’t get worse, the Department of Justice files another legal brief. In response to a class action lawsuit by as many as 3,500 ready-to-hire air traffic controller applicants whose names were “purged” so the Federal Aviation Administration could hire based on race, federal lawyers asserted that the administration is immune from liability for denying constitutional equal protection because of sovereign immunity. In other words, they claim protection by the legal maxim rex non potest peccare, which means, “the king can do no...

Apparently, it’s all fine and dandy for a Dem to say it. For a Republican? Not so much.
