Conservative Coalition Urges Media to Stop Citing SPLC

Written by Peter LaBarbera

A coalition of 47 conservatives has written a letter appealing to the media to stop citing the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as an authority on “hate,” calling it “an attack dog of the political left” that slanders traditional conservatives as “extremists.”

In the wake of the race protests and riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, CNN and other media and blogs have cited the SPLC’s “hate map” as a guide to locate “hate groups”and “extremists” across the United States.… Continue Reading

Tucker Carlson: Antifa’s The Democrats’ Militant Wing

Written by Robert Kraychik

Antifa is the de facto militant wing of Democrats, said Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Monday’s episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Carlson made his comments during an interview with Joey Gibson, founder of “Patriot Prayer” and a self-described advocate for free speech and expression.

“This is a political militia that is doing the bidding, in effect, of Nancy Pelosi and Governor Jerry Brown and the mayor of Berkeley and all these supposedly mainstream Democratic politicians, and this is a militia hurting American citizens for saying what they think,” said Carlson.… Continue Reading

Mainstream Conservatives Are On CNN’s “Hate Group” List

Written by Jordan Schachtel

CNN has published a list of “hate groups” currently operating in the United States, relying on an extremely partisan analysis from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

Several truly extremist groups populate the list, such as the Ku Klux Klan, New Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and others.

But along with the neo-Nazi and Islamic extremist groups on the list, the SPLC has lumped in as “hate groups” mainstream, well-known conservative individuals and organizations who merely speak out about the threat of radical Islam.… Continue Reading

ABC News Vilifies Everyday Americans with “Hate Group” Headline

Written by Monica Burke

[Last] week, an ABC News headline referred to Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian nonprofit committed to defending religious liberty in the legal system, as an “anti-LGBT hate group.” ABC reported on a speech delivered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the following manner:

Sessions addressed members of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which was designated an ‘anti-LGBT hate group’ by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2016, at the Summit on Religious Liberty at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, in Dana Point, California.

Double Standards in the War between White House and Media

Written by Michael Medved

For all his vast power, the President of the United States—any president—is always at a structural disadvantage in a “war” with the media. The First Amendment protects press rights to criticize the government, and everyone expects such criticism. But if government—or the president, as head of government—strikes back by assailing media, there’s an uneasy hint of bullying or oppression.

President Donald Trump isn’t exceptional in generating media hostility, but Barack Obama was exceptional in avoiding such scrutiny for eight years.… Continue Reading

Killing Trump: Hollywood’s Violent Assault on an American President

Written by Todd Starnes

Hollywood wants President Trump to sleep with the fishes. They want him dead – decapitated – his bloody entrails splayed across the Rose Garden for all of the world to see.

A who’s-who of actors and directors and musicians want him to suffer the most agonizingly brutal and gory death in the history of assassinations.

Johnny Depp is the latest star of stage and screen to flirt with the idea of murdering President Trump.… Continue Reading

Exposé of Fake News Machine CNN

Written by Laurie Higgins

A bombshell undercover video narrated by James O’Keefe and released on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, shows CNN supervising producer John Bonifield admitting that the Trump collusion tale is “mostly bullsh*t” that CNN pushes because it’s a ratings blockbuster.

Bonifield admits what is obvious to many Americans about the mainstream media’s evidence for the endless Russia story: “We don’t have any big giant proof….I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging.”

When asked why CNN is “constantly like, Russia this, Russia that,” Bonifield answers, “Because it’s ratings….Our ratings are incredible now.”

Fifteen-year journalist and producer veteran Bonifield agrees with Trump that the dominant media’s obsessive pursuit of this story for which there is no evidence is a “witch hunt”: “I think the president is probably right to say…’you are witch-hunting me.’” Bonifield admits it’s a witch hunt because there is “no smoking gun” and “no real proof.”

Bonifield claims the laser focus on the nonexistent Trump-Russia collusion tale is being orchestrated from the top with CNN CEO Jeff Zucker ordering journalists to “get back to Russia,” after taking a day to cover Trump’s decision to pull out the of the climate accords.… Continue Reading

Guidestar to Remove ‘Hate Group’ Labels on Conservative Groups for ‘Time Being’

Written by Rachel del Guidice

The nation’s leading source of information on U.S. charities announced it will modify its use of a controversial “hate group” designation in listings for some well-known and broadly supported conservative nonprofits.

“We have decided to remove the SPLC annotations from these 46 organizations for the time being,” read a statement posted Friday on GuideStar’s website. “This change will be implemented during the week of June 26, 2017. In the meantime, we will make this information available to any user on request.”

GuideStar, which calls itself a “neutral” aggregator of tax data on charities, recently incorporated the “hate group” labels produced by the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, which inspired 41 conservative leaders to protest the move, asking GuideStar in a letter last week to remove the flagging

In an interview with The Daily Signal last week, William G.… Continue Reading

CNN’s Fake Muslim Anti-Terror Protest

“You see more press than anyone else.”

Written by Amber Athey

[Last week] CNN was accused of staging a Muslim-led anti-terror protest after the London terror attacks. Now, more footage has dropped that shows what happened on the scene before the CNN shot was taken.

A Youtube video taken by Claire Jordan shows her milling around the scene and “protest” prior to CNN lining up the protesters for their on-air shot.

There is a group of people in the area, both Muslim and non-Muslim, and some of them can be seen handing out bouquets of flowers and posters.… Continue Reading

The Need for a Middle America News Network

Written by Bruce Walker

The decline and lurch to the left of the Fox News Network provides an opening for any astute conservative billionaire: create a news network specifically intended to provide news from the viewpoint of most of America, which is to say the seventy-five percent of Americans who live in Flyover Country.  While the geographic concentration of political power in America is appalling, the geographic concentration of media power is much worse.

Because the media defy elections and, in fact, determine elections, having almost all national news pass through the tiny channel of the New York-to-Washington Beltway is toxic to our national life.… Continue Reading
