  • Mainstream media tries to 'rewrite history' to credit Obama for Trump accomplishments

    ANALYSIS Since President Trump took office, the economy is booming, according to such reliable sources as federal agencies, analysts and data from the private sector. That may not be good enough for the press, however. The news media is seeking to “rewrite history” to credit former President Barack Obama for this feat, says one major business publication. “The stronger the economy gets under Trump, the more desperate his critics are to hand credit over to Obama. Even if that entails changing the past,” says an Investor’s Business Daily editorial. “A recent New York Times story says it all: ‘An economic...

    Keith Ellison’s ( alleged domestic abuse) of a former girlfriend is not his leading disqualification to serve as Minnesota Attorney General. I think his leading disqualifications for the office are his past involvement with the hate cult known as the Nation of Islam (and his continued lying about same) along with his support for cop killers. Yet we have heard not a word from the Minnesota media about Ellison’s public record in either case as he seeks the position of Minnesota’s top law enforcement officer, while the domestic abuse allegations have been accorded a banner headline — (“Keith Ellison denies...

    Growth: The stronger the economy gets under President Trump, the more desperate his critics are to hand credit over to Obama. Even if that entails changing the past. A recent New York Times story says it all: "An Economic Upturn Begun Under Obama Is Now Trump's To Tout." The article begins by admitting that "by nearly every standard measure, the American economy is doing well," then spends the next 1,400 words arguing that the current good times have nothing to do with Trump's economic agenda. The economy, reporter Patricia Cohen declares, "is following the upward trajectory begun under President Barack...
  • The Media Is Encouraging Violence Against Themselves

    The media keeps claiming that President Trump is encouraging violence against them. But the media are not the true victims here, and they will largely have themselves to blame if violence does befall them. Talking about Trump, MSNBC's Katy Tur said last Friday: "Yeah, we get it, you don't like us. Fine. But do you have to put our lives in danger?"

    NBC News has ignored the story of their own reporter and news crew being attacked in the streets of Charlottesville by Antifa marchers on Saturday. From NewsBusters: On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville protests, white supremacists and radical leftists known as Antifa descended on the Virginia town once more to commit more violence. Late Saturday night, NBC News reporter Cal Perry and his crew were in the thick of it as Antifa members ganged up on them and attacked. The next morning, NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the attack and suggested the media was simply “heckled” by their assaulters....
  • Baby Boom or Bust? Media Gets it Wrong – Again

    According to recent media accounts, America is in a population death spiral. Open-borders activists have seized on the narrative to promote ever-looser immigration policies.But the narrative is wrong.In fact, women in the U.S. are more likely to be mothers than in the past, and they are having more children, reports the Pew Research Center.The Pew study found that women have 2.07 children during their lives on average – up from 1.86 in 2006, the lowest on record. Family size is also up. In 2016, mothers at the end of their childbearing years had had about 2.42 children, compared with 2.31...

    BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump is spending his summer vacation at his golf club in New Jersey. Wait, don’t call it “vacation.” Trump, who is loath to admit to sleeping — let alone taking time off — has spent his week away mixing downtime and golf rounds with meetings and dinners, intent on projecting the image that he’s been hard at work. Ensconced at his private club, he’s surrounded by a clutch of unofficial Bedminster advisers, who have unusual levels of access to a president with the propensity for mixing business with leisure.

    BOSTON (AP) — A Boston newspaper is calling for a coordinated editorial response to President Donald Trump's frequent attacks on the news media. The Boston Globe has appealed to newspapers across the U.S. to publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what it calls a "dirty war against the free press.".... Marjorie Pritchard, who oversees the Globe's editorial page, says dozens of newspapers have agreed so far to write their own editorials.

    Ana Navarro is about as much a conservative as Barack Obama is a potato. At the risk of being misunderstood, that’s to say — not. Yet Navarro happily masquerades as CNN’s token Conservative in the House pundit. As even Meghan McCain — no hard-line conservative herself — said back in January while chatting on “The View” about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, during which Navarro slammed President Donald Trump: “Ana … it’s really difficult for me to understand sometimes why you still consider yourself a Republican,” the Washington Examiner reported. Ditto. But here’s why — here’s...

    The Federalist ^ | 6 Aug 18 | Glenn T. Stanton
    The New York Times’ Frank Bruni really upped his game this week. In an atrociously brutal piece, he called Vice President Mike Pence a “holy terror,” claiming he’s multiple degrees more sinister than President Trump, the otherwise most sinister person on the planet. Bruni actually warns the best case against impeaching Trump is the much greater danger of Pence. Think about that a moment though. For all the venom and apocalyptic hysteria being spewed at everything Trump has ever said, done or probably even thought — and there is plenty there of concern — there is someone even “worse” than...

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Republican Troy Balderson won the special election for Ohio’s 12th district over Democat Danny O’Connor, denying the fake news media another excuse to rev up its “Blue Wave” narrative one more time. The race was very close, with Balderson prevailing by just 1,754 votes out of the 202,000 total votes cast. Absurdly, the two will...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Democrats have now taken us back to the Klan days of the early 1960s – A gang of white Democrats assaulted a black woman in a cafe in Philadelphia Monday morning as she was attempting to have some breakfast. Sound familiar? No, I didn’t make that up – the black woman’s name is Candace Owens, a conservative activist who helped to start the rising #walkaway movement on Twitter. The white Democrats were a bunch of Antifa thugs who found out where Ms. Owens was attempting to dine and literally ran her out...

    Thankfully, a heroic citizen with a permit to legally carry a concealed handgun was able to save countless lives in Florida Saturday when he shot a gunman who opened fire on a back-to-school event attended by over 150 students at a park in Titusville, Florida. The media rarely give national news coverage to incidents like this, but responsible gun owners have stepped forward in this way many times before to save lives. In fact, concealed handgun permit holders have prevented dozens of mass public shootings just in recent years, while receiving only brief mentions in local news coverage. Fortunately, only...

    Saying “white people are bull—t” won’t get you banned from Twitter but saying Jewish people are will. That’s what happened to conservative activist Candace Owens, who was suspended from Twitter for mimicking the racist tweets of new New York Times editorial-board member Sarah Jeong. Ms. Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, tweeted Saturday that “Jewish people are bull—t … like dogs pissing on fire hydrants #cancelJewishpeople Are Jewish people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun? The above statements are from @nytimes editor @SarahJeong. I simply swapped out the word ‘white’ for ‘Jewish.’” Despite her tweet explicitly...

And every other social media platform you’re accessing today. In all seriousness, the piece is by Paul Sperry, one of the handful of real working journalists still functioning in our national news media today, and anything by Sperry is well worth taking the time to read. So go read it already. April Ryan is a shameless liar,...
