  • Kathleen Parker Proves The Moore Campaign Right About The Washington Post

    In case you still harbor reservations about how much you love the job Sarah Sanders is doing as White House Press Secretary, read this column from Kathleen Parker at the Washington Post. Ms. Parker complains that Ms. Sanders “humiliates the media on a daily basis.” Ummmmm…yeah, so? Is there a point here? Ms. Parker’s big complaint – her last straw with Ms. Sanders, apparently – was that Sanders began her press briefing on Wednesday by – gasp! – asking various members of the press corps to talk about one thing for which they are actually thankful. “For a press secretary...
  • Washington Post Reports On 'Regretful' Trump Voters To Fit Their Narrative

    The Post identifies the participants as “Trump voters,” which is ostensibly true. But they are an unrepresentative sample. What better way to find Trump voters who regret their vote than to talk to non-Republicans. The majority of Trump voters are Republicans, but only a third of the Trump voter focus group participants are Republicans, which may explain why only one participant said she was still fully supportive of the president. The headline says, “Trump voters” but the piece focuses only on women, with the opinions of one man tacked on at the end. The Post doesn’t explain the gender breakdown...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Given that it’s the day before Thanksgiving and The Campaign Update will be taking tomorrow off, it seems like a good time to list some of the many things I’m thankful for in the world of politics and public policy. The first one is easy: I’m thankful that Hillary Clinton isn’t the president. It’s bad enough that she remains in the public eye, still doing everything she can to destroy our nation’s democracy, still cloying and grasping in a desperate effort to remain politically viable, but she isn’t president, and the nation...
  • Deniers of the Reality of Liberal Bias

    As the media elites roll their eyes and sigh at people who deny the apparently inevitable approach of traumatic climate change, there's one category of denial they always endorse: a liberal bias in the "news." Chest-pounding journalistic activism defines the Trump era, and yet shameless journalists still claim media bias is a myth. James Warren, a former managing editor and chief of the Chicago Tribune Washington, D.C., bureau, now works at The Poynter Institute for media studies (or media denial?). He posted a commentary on Nov. 20 headlined "How Mega-Media Deals Further Erode the Myth of a 'Liberal' Media." Liberals...

    A federal court unsealed documents in a lawsuit over Fusion GPS’s bank records on Tuesday, revealing new details of payments made last year to the opposition research firm that commissioned the infamous Trump dossier. The documents also shed new light on requests made by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence about payments that Fusion GPS made to journalists. The records were unsealed in response to a ruling made last week by Richard Leon, a federal judge in the district court in Washington, D.C. The bank documents list 112 transactions involving Fusion GPS.

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    We’ve also just begun to scratch the surface where Bill Clinton is concerned. The four women who accused Clinton yesterday were all employees of billionaire Ron Burkel, with whom Clinton spent years flying around the world with a gaggle of young women during the early 2000’s. Clinton also made dozens of flights on private jet of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. One person taking advantage of all this is New York Senator Kirstin Gillebrand, who famously spent several weeks earlier this year acting on polling data that told Democrats that the best way to appeal to Millenials is to curse a...

  • Liberals Politicize Everything, Especially Sexual Harassment

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    We now have so many sexual harassment charges popping up against Democrat officeholders and Democrat supporters in Hollywood that it is impossible to keep up with. The fake news media is myopically focused on the allegations against Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, but he is without question the exception to the emerging rule that sexual harassment of women, much like voter fraud, is almost solely the province of liberal Democrats. What is it in the liberal male mind that makes them think it’s OK to abuse women? Do they think that, because they support “women’s issues” like abortion on demand...

    In an exclusive interview with Mother Jones, Clinton says Russian interference and GOP voter suppression efforts may have cost her the presidency.A year after her defeat by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton says “there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” due to Russian interference and widespread voter suppression efforts. In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters—it was determining...

    New York Slimes ^ | November, 18, 2017 | Nicholas Kristof
    As we watch Roy Moore thumping his Bible to defend himself from accusations of child molestation, let me toss out a verbal hand grenade: To some degree, liberals practice the values that conservatives preach. This is complicated terrain with lots of exceptions, and the recent scandals involving Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and Al Franken underscore that liberals can be skunks as much as anyone else. Yet if one looks at blue and red state populations as a whole, it’s striking that conservatives champion “family values” even as red states have high rates of teenage births, divorce and prostitution. In contrast,...

Turns out that trying to stage a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in China is a little more challenging than organizers had originally hoped. Tone deaf singer Katy Perry was scheduled to perform at the event, but was unable to obtain a visa when Chinese officials were informed that, during a 2015 concert in Taipei, Ms. Perry wore a dress adorned with great big sunflowers.

    You’ve heard the statistics before: Americans have more guns per head than any nation on earth – along with gun violence rates that are dramatically higher than other rich, developed countries. But these big-picture facts can be misleading. Not every American is packing heat and gun violence is intensely concentrated in small neighbourhoods. Here’s a look at the dramatic concentration of America’s guns – and America’s violence:

    Last week’s anniversary of Trump’s election sparked widespread teeth-gnashing by the nation’s pundits. Trump is supposedly the gravest threat to American democracy since the secession of the Confederacy. His presidency, probably, continues to be a boon for antidepressant sales across the land. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg, in a column last week headlined “Anniversary of the Apocalypse,” lamented the “terror-struck and vertiginous days” after Trump’s win and the ongoing “metaphysical whiplash” and “hideous interregnum,” which leaves her “poleaxed by grief at the destruction of our civic inheritance.” Professor Henry Giroux of McMaster University frothed that Trump’s “ascendancy in American...

    So, the narrative in the fake news media now is that it would somehow be inappropriate for DOJ to investigate President Trump’s “political opponent”, Hillary Clinton. That is the theme advanced by NBC’s Chuck Todd and two other fake reporters in a piece published a NBC.com on Tuesday. To no one’s surprise, this piece – which simply advances the narrative being pushed jointly by the fake media at large and the rest of the Democrat Party – ignores the fact that as of today, Hillary Clinton is in fact no one’s political opponent. She’s not running for anything, and has...

    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. “We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said. “15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims,” Todd replied, somewhat shocked. “So, obviously more than one member of Congress.” Pressed for details, Speier said she did not know how...

    Republican Roy Moore is on the hot seat for alleged bad behavior around women and girls some 40 years ago. Why aren't Democrats Joe Biden and Bob Menendez as well? Former vice president Biden, recall, has a long history of groping women, touching them inappropriately in public, making them obviously uncomfortable, as some of these photos show. Biden is in line as a top Democratic Party contender for the presidency, and nobody's saying a thing about this. Substantially worse than Biden is Democratic senator Bob Menendez, now on trial in New Jersey for corruption. He's been accused of having a...
