Despite the self-promotion, the White House Correspondents Association dinner is hardly a “tradition” in the sense most Americans think of our national traditions, such as turkey for Thanksgiving dinner or fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Contrary to what Senator McCain said about dictatorship starting by suppressing a free press, it is not hard to see parallels between today’s free, but highly politicized establishment elite media, and the media in Germany that helped the Nazis take power.
Why does President Trump’s adversarial relationship with the establishment media seem to help him sell himself and his agenda? What could be better than getting your enemies in the media to provide you with a live broadcast documenting your beatdown of them.
“I want you to quote this,” President Trump’s senior White House strategist Steve Bannon told The New York Times. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
If CNN and the rest of the establishment media chose to investigate and report on research that has been done by the Public Interest Law Foundation, and evidence presented in various voting-related lawsuits, President Trump’s claims would not be disputed.
Conservatives and the Trump administration should not underestimate what is going on here based on what the useful idiots of Hollywood say. They are merely fronting for Angela Davis, Linda Sarsour, George Soros and the much larger and more sinister forces of the Red – Green Axis.
There’s only one problem with attacking the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s election as tainted by a Russian disinformation campaign; a disinformation campaign is based on lies made to look like truth, and the hackers, be they Russians, Chinese or Americans, revealed the truth behind the Democrats’ lies.
What would make Republican candidates for President agree to a debate moderated by Matt Lauer, a “Notable Member” of the Clinton Global Initiative, or George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary of a Democratic president, or the likes of CNN’s notoriously liberal host Anderson Cooper? Besides rank stupidity, it is hard to think of a reason.
What makes CNN so sure of their own moral superiority over Trump, and Republicans, in general, that they didn’t think twice about the big, wonking headline to this story – where they equated black voters to felons?
Anchor Anderson Cooper will moderate the town hall event, CNN said in a statement, which will take place during a primetime broadcast next Tuesday, March 29. CNN added that GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) will field questions from Wisconsin voters before they go to the polls on April 5.
CNN cancelled a scheduled interview Monday evening with Marco Rubio's communications director, a move that comes as the cable news network continues to defend a report claiming the Florida senator's inner circle has been thrown into chaos.
Ben Carson attacked CNN late Thursday for questioning his accounts of violence in his youth. “Those claims are absolutely true,” he said of attempts he made as a teen to stab a relative and hit his mother with a hammer. Carson has told the stories to mark how his life changed.
Robert Costa of The Washington Post insisted that McConnell is trying “to govern responsibly. That started in '14 by pushing back the Tea Party and it starts now by making sure that all the passions & eagerness in the House don't overtake the party.”
Dems. have lost their advantage and Repubs. now have a slight edge in the battle for Congress, according to a new national poll, which indicates that Obama may be dragging down Dem. congressional candidates.
Liberal ESPN columnist LZ Granderson justified Obama's repeated lie about ObamaCare, claiming that Americans knew he did it for their own good.
As ObamaCare destroys private health insurance and private health care it is inevitable that, just like in the Old Soviet Union’s single payer system, the ruling class will legislate its own special doctors, hospitals and health care plan while we plebeians in the workers’ paradise endure a health care system reminiscent of that enjoyed by the medieval peasantry.
Far from being a model of how Republicans should govern and campaign to win nationally, Chris Christie’s re-election proves three things: Chris Christie’s brand of “all about me” politics has no coat tails and means certain defeat for the larger conservative agenda, and having a weak opponent who has been abandoned by their own Party makes winning a landslide a whole lot easier.
The Daily Currant is a satire site, but that didn't stop Piers Morgan from gleefully tweeting out a Currant story attacking Sarah Palin, without noting that the story was untrue. Nothing on the page indicates the article is satire.
The real fight within the GOP now is largely between Main Street and the K Street/Wall Street Alliance within the GOP.
In a clear attempt to woo largely establishment Repub. commentators who have opposed the GOP’s shutdown strategy, Obama held an off-the-record meeting with Charles Krauthammer, Paul Gigot, Robert Costa, Kathleen Parker, and Byron York.
