You Can’t Complain About Liberal Media Bias Again, Ever

Y

Without fail, every day I post about the Russian government’s propaganda campaign to influence voters, I am told: “There’s no evidence of a single changed vote.” When I clarify I never claimed a vote was physically altered, they counter: “There’s no proof of a single voter changing their vote because of it.” If propaganda and misleading information have...

But Trump Hires The Best People

B

Either he’s powerful, or he’s gullible. Either he’s a great manager, or a bad one. He cannot be both. For what it’s worth, Trump doesn’t appear to regret his hiring choices, but his cult base seems to think he’s being played. Yet, if he hires the best people, why did he lose Michael Flynn, one of his closest aides and National Security Advisor? Reince Preibus...

Trump Admin Not Enforcing Russia Sanctions Passed by Congress

T

The Trump administration is not implementing the sanctions passed almost unanimously by Congress in July, and the leaders of the Senate Armed Services committee are not happy about it. The bill, passed in the wake of proven Russian meddling in our election last year, was signed under strong opposition from the President. Sens John McCain and Ben Cardin sent a letter to the President 12 days after...

Sen. Flake Won’t Seek Reelection, in Speech: “I Am Holier Than None”

S

“I rise today to say: enough.” This afternoon, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced he will bow out of the reelection for his senate seat. While in a fierce battle of words with the president the last few months, he clearly had a long game here, publishing a book in August titled “Conscience of a Conservative,” which opened party wounds immediately upon it’s release. In...

WaPo: Harvey Weinstein Helped Pay the Clinton’s Legal Bills

W

Once I saw the headline, I remembered: Harvey Weinstein was one of those Hollywood liberals who helped the Clintons cover their legal bills in the 90’s, and the Washington Post was the outlet that broke it. Yes, the ironic fakenews bourgeoisie is sharing a WaPo story. Not really “in the tank” after all. Especially now, with all the attention Weinstein is getting lately...

BREAKING: President Threatens FCC License Challenge Over Latest NBC Report

B

In a constantly-evolving news cycle, the latest target of President Trump’s Twitter account is a favorite of his: NBC. Issuing a lengthy report this morning, they revealed that the comment drawing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s ire in July was Trump’s assertion that we have a tenfold increase in our nuclear stockpile. It was in response to this, and other tense moments that...

The “Fake News” Narrative Is An Old Story

T

This #FakeNews madness is a headache. The term, coined to describe actual fake news sites that publish not-obvious parody has been co-opted by my fellow conservatives to describe anything perceived to be not conservative. It’s most popular among those for whose deceiving it actually described. In fact, the last two years social media proliferated with fabricated or purposely exaggerated...

BREAKING: In Wake of Scandal, Sec. Tom Price Resigns

B

Secretary of the department of health and human services, Tom Price has tendered his resignation to President Trump, say sources in the White House. In the last couple days, press reports revealed the former budget chief in the House of Representatives was found to have used private charter jets on the government dime.
