Jesters, ‘Hypokrites,’ Actors & Actresses

Written by Nicholas J. Stojakovich

The next time a Hollywood actor or actress tries to persuade or impress you with their profound knowledge and insights on political or world affairs, keep a few things in mind.

Never forget that the word “actor” comes from the Greek word “hypokrites,” which means “an actor” or “a stage player.”

Of course, many actors and actresses throughout history and today are incredibly gifted, and have created and will continue to create memorable stage plays and films that impact society for good.… Continue Reading

Understanding Fake News

Written by Carmel Kookogey

Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin explained why he believes the media is the most important issue facing Americans today.

Levin read from an article he discusses in his upcoming book, “Unfreedom of the Press.” The article, written after the 2016 election by CBS News digital political correspondent Will Rahn, detailed D.C. journalists’ anguish after Donald Trump’s victory. The reporter admitted the mainstream media missed the story, while smugly mocking the people — Trump’s supporters — who knew better what was going on.… Continue Reading

Facebook & Twitter: Biased Against the Right?

Written by David Grogan

Recently, representatives from Facebook and Twitter appeared before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to respond to claims that their companies are engaging in the censorship of conservative news and voices. For years, conservatives have lamented the power of Big Tech over political discourse and their bias against the Right.

U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) made sure to point out that, in her view, the evidence conservatives have for social media bias is purely anecdotal.… Continue Reading

Hey Liberals, On Media Bias, Please Remove the Plank from Your Own Eye

Written by David Limbaugh

What kind of Twilight Zone are we living in when Democrats pretend that the mainstream media are objective journalists and Fox News is an arm of the Trump administration?

People are always talking about media bias, so why am I bringing this up now?

Well, because of two news alerts that popped up on my phone. First, I read that the Democratic National Committee is refusing to partner with Fox News for the 2020 primary debates.… Continue Reading

Cognitive Bias and the Democrats

Written by Walker Wildmon

According to Chegg.com, “a cognitive bias is a mistake in reasoning, evaluating, remembering, or other cognitive process, often occurring as a result of holding onto one’s preferences and beliefs regardless of contrary information. Psychologists study cognitive biases as they relate to memory, reasoning, and decision-making.”

The modern day Democratic Party seems to be full of members who struggle with a form of cognitive bias. Look at their behavior.

For over two years, Democrats have accused President Donald J.Continue Reading

Leftist Hysteria and Their Language Rules

Written by Laurie Higgins

An illuminating tempest in a polluted teapot churned up at the end of last week when 10 “progressives” in Springfield took umbrage at an article written for Illinois Family Action (IFA) by Teri Paulson that compared the sickening, vigorous, and enthusiastic anti-life position of the Democratic Party to the sickening, vigorous, and enthusiastic anti-life position of the Nazi Party.

Somehow Chicago Sun-Times writer Tina Sfondeles got wind of their umbrage and wrote an article that quoted one of the indignant lawmakers, State Rep.… Continue Reading

No, We’re Not All Socialists Now

Written by Jerry Newcombe

[Recently], the New York Post had an editorial about how many millennials embrace “socialism,” while not really knowing what it means:  “Millennials — ignorant of socialism’s appalling economic and human-rights history — increasingly embrace socialism and its naively unrealistic prescriptions for ending all human want.”

I’m reminded of a college student who wrote his dad: “Dear Dad, No mon. No fun. Your son.”

His dad wrote back: “Too bad. So sad. Your Dad.”

The Post points out that a majority of Democrats view socialism positively—yet the very same poll finds them in favor of small business and free enterprise.  … Continue Reading

The Irresponsibility of Jussie Smollett

Written by Jonathon Clay de Hale

When Jussie Smollett’s account of being attacked first broke at the end of January, I watched with interest but didn’t say anything. It seemed a bit cartoonish: two white guys wearing MAGA hats giving a gay black man a beat down in the middle of Chicago on a night of sub-zero temperatures, yelling racial and anti-gay epithets, dousing him with bleach, tying a noose around his neck and proclaiming, “This is MAGA country!” You couldn’t have scripted a better scenario for a hate crime in the age of Trump.… Continue Reading

Hate Crime Hoaxes: The Bad and the Good

Written by Walter WIlliams

Jussie Smollett, “Empire” actor, claimed that on Jan. 29, two masked men identifying themselves as Donald Trump supporters and using racial and homophobic insults attacked him. Smollett said the assailants yelled “This is MAGA country,” bashed his face, crushed his ribs, splashed him with bleach and put a noose around his neck. Smollett’s telling of the hate crime was gobbled up hook, line and sinker by the anti-Trump news media, but Chicago police say it was a hoax.… Continue Reading

California Public High School Bans MAGA Hats

Written by Laurie Higgins

A spokesperson for the Clovis Unified School District in Fresno, California recently rationalized the decision of Clovis North High School to prohibit students from wearing MAGA hats to school, implying that the hats would be “distracting.” Translated: The school fears obnoxious leftist high school students will respond obnoxiously to the presence of peers wearing MAGA hats.

Everyone knows that conservative kids are far less likely to respond obnoxiously to, for example, Obama paraphernalia, therefore, such paraphernalia would not be a distraction, and, therefore, it would not be prohibited.… Continue Reading
